Open Doors USA releases its world ranking of persecution by country – North Korea still #1, Mali newcomer to list #7

WWL-Main-Download

Information and watch list from  the non denominational group http://www.OpenDoorsUSA.org.  Rankings released  January 8,2013

North Korea – For the eleventh year running, this is the most difficult place on earth to be a Christian. In a country of 24.5 million, there are just 400,000 Christians. North Korea is one of the remaining Communist states, and it is vehemently opposed to religion of any kind. Christians are classified as hostile and face arrest, detention, torture, even public execution. There is a system of labor camps including the renowned prison No. 15, which reportedly houses 6,000 Christians alone. But despite severe oppression, there is a growing underground church movement of an estimated 400,000 Christians. We have written on North Korea several times in the past year. At the bottom are some noteworthy articles you can read in order to become more familiar with the brutal hardship that is endured by the Christians of North Korea. You can also read about North Korea’s hidden gulag, below all of the links, and visit the website that published The Hidden Gulag Report.

African countries surge – Open Doors reports that persecution of Christians in Africa vastly increased in 2012. Mali is a newcomer on the list and holds the No. 7 position. Tanzania (No. 24), Kenya (No. 40), Uganda (47) and Niger (No. 50) also moved onto the World Watch List and Ethiopia is one of the strongest risers (from No. 38 to No. 15) on the list. In addition, the small African country of Eritrea made the Top 10 for the first time at No. 10. Libya climbed from No. 26 to No. 17.

Syria made the largest jump on the World Watch List. The country is No. 11 on the list, compared to No. 36 in 2012.

Christians are persecuted in at least 60 countries for their faith. They suffer interrogation, arrest and even death in some of the most dangerous and restrictive countries in the world. For 58 years Open Doors has supported and strengthened believers worldwide through Bible and Christian literature distribution, leadership training and assistance, Christian community development and prayer and presence ministry.

The Hidden Gulag

Second Edition

The Lives and Voices of
“Those Who are Sent to the Mountains”

David Hawk

Description: Based on extensive interviews with over 60 defectors and more than 40 satellite photos of North Korean political prisoner camps, the report calls for the dismantlement of the vast North Korean gulag system in which 150,000 to 200,000 are incarcerated.

From Page 158: In the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea, crimes against humanity are committed against persons sent to the political penal labor colonies. Evidence shows that:

1. Perceived or suspected “wrong-doers” or “wrong-thinkers,” or in some instances, persons with“wrong-knowledge,”123 and/or their family from the DPRK State Security Agency,124 which refuses to acknowledge the deprivation of freedom and refuses to provide information on the fate or whereabouts of those persons with the intent of removing those persons from the “protection of law” for a prolonged period of time.

2. The abducted persons are subjected to deportation or forcible transfer from the area in which they were lawfully present without grounds permitted under international law.

3. The abducted and deported persons are deposited at distant, remote, penal labor colonies or encampments, where they are subjected to “imprisonment or severe deprivation of physi- cal liberty in violation of fundamental rules of international law.”129 These abductions, deporta- tions and the subsequent imprisonments all take place without any judicial process. There is no arrest, charge, trial, conviction or sentence, as provided in the DPRK Criminal Code and the DPRK Criminal Procedures Code.

4.The prolonged, indefinite detention of family members is a violation of Article 26 of the ICCPR, “…the law shall prohibit any discrimi- nation and guarantee to all persons equal and effective protection against discrimination on any ground such as race, colour, sex, language, religion, political or other opinion, national or social origin, property, birth or other status.” The imprisonment of family members amounts to what the ICC Statute terms as “persecu- tion.” Most family members of suspected wrong-doers or wrong-thinkers are detained for the rest of their lives in sections of the prison camps termed “total control zones.”

5. Once cut off from any contact with the coun- try or world outside of the prison camp, including former family and friends, the imprisoned persons are subjected, usually for a lifetime, to arduous forced labor under extremely severe circumstances. This begins with the provision of below subsistence level food rations.

7. Prisoners are regularly subjected to beatings and sometimes more systematic torture for infractions of prison camp regulations and during interrogations.

8.On numerous occasions, prisoners compelled to observe executions (which are carried out publicly to demonstrate to other prisoners the severe consequences of escape attempts and/or non-compliance with camp regulations) …

9. Prison camp officials and guards are regularly able to exact sexual relations with female prison- ers under circumstances that have been judged to constitute rape or sexual violence …

Another face of persecution in Sudan – Christians lose their citizenship

Sudan

Christiantoday.com is reporting that 2,300 Christians have been evacuated from southern Sudan and that 1,500 more are yet to be rescued.

South Sudan became independent in July 2011 under a 2005 peace agreement which ended decades of civil war but the neighbors have yet to resolve a long list of disputes. Al late as April 2012, the two countries’ armies skirmished over a border oil area, raising fears they would plunge back into a full-scale confrontation, like the civil war Sudan’s north and south fought for more than two decades before a 2005 peace deal.

south-sudan-map2Rebellions in South Kordofan and Blue Nile states, which remained within Sudan’s territory after the July 2011 secession of South Sudan, and also insurgents in the western Sudanese region of Darfur, are still stoking the chronic instability that has plagued Sudan since its independence from Britain in 1956.

This has pitted groups on the periphery of the nation against a central Arab governing political elite in Khartoum whose critics say has marginalized many of Sudan’s peoples.

The Southern Sudanese Christians have lived in the north part of Sudan for decades, but weeks after Southern Sudan seceded, they were stripped of their citizenship and asked to leave.

The Khartoum government reportedly says that that people in Sudan whose parents, grandparents or great-grandparents were born in South Sudan, and those who belong to any Southern ethnic group, „are nationals of that country.”

Barnabas Fund said it fears a massive exodus could trigger a humanitarian emergency at a time when both Sudan and neighboring South Sudan face difficulties.

„Despite the end of the long civil war and independence of South Sudan, Christians in both nations continue to suffer grievously,” explained Patrick Sookhdeo, international director of Barnabas Fund.

BosNewsLife.com also reports: „South Sudan is taking the strain as hundreds of thousands of people flee from [Sudan’s] President Omar al-Bashir’s ongoing brutal campaign to Islamise and Arabise Sudan completely,” he told BosNewsLife in a statement.

It comes as the young state of South Sudan faces a major food crisis as drought has ruined crops, according to the UN World Food Programme (WFP).

Nearly five million people in South Sudan could suffer from food insecurity in 2012, with an estimated one million in severe need, according to UN estimates.

The country’s resources are also strained by the arrival of refugees from clashes in the border states of South Kordofan and Blue Nile, adjacent to newly-independent South Sudan.

Around 185,000 people have fled to South Sudan and Ethiopia to escape the ongoing aerial bombardment of civilians by the Sudan Armed Forces, Barnabas Fund said.

Pray for our brothers and sisters, as they are forced to leave their homes and move elsewhere.

In awe of creation – The Great Barrier Reef – Coplesit de maretia creatiunii – Marea Bariera de Corali

Subtitrare in Limba Romana- 344.000 de kilometri pătrați, 3000 de recife și 300 de insule: aceasta este Marea Barieră de Corali, cel mai mare recif de corali din lume. Situat în Marea Coralilor, aproape de coasta de Nord-Est a Australiei, reciful este un univers de culoare și cu siguranță unul din cele mai frumoase peisaje din lume.

Acest film documentar patrunde în universul Marii Bariere de Corali și ne arată flora și fauna de aici, cum se hrănesc animalele viu colorate ce trăiesc în recif, cine sunt prădătorii și prăzile și cum funcționează acest ecosistem extrem de fragil. Pentru un biolog, recifele de corali sunt adevărate laboratoare, în care se pot realiza cercetări științifice valoroase, iar pentru scufundătorul îndrăgostit de mediul submarin reprezintă acea ultimă frontieră, un univers încă virgin, care așteaptă să fie descoperit.
