Virginia: Muslim family convicted of slavery: held woman against her will for 12 years.

Here is a news story being ignored by the corporate mainstream media: A Muslim family in Virginia has been convicted in Federal Court of holding a woman as a slave for 12 years. 

According to a press release by the US Department of Justice: "A federal jury in sitting in Richmond, Virginia, found defendants Zahida Aman, Mohammad Nauman Chaudhri and Mohammad Rehan Chaudhri, guilty of conspiracy to commit forced labor for compelling the domestic labor of a Pakistani women for 12 years. The jury further found defendant Aman guilty of forced labor and document servitude, and defendant Rehan Chaudhri guilty of forced labor."

Assistant Attorney General Kristen Clarke for the Justice Department's Civil Rights Divison and U.S. Attorney Jessica D. Aber for the Eastern District of Virginia made the announcement. 

“The defendants exploited the victim’s trust and inflicted cruel and inhumane physical and mental abuse on her, all so they could keep her working in their home as their domestic servant,” said Assistant Attorney General Kristen Clarke. “Human trafficking is a disgraceful and unacceptable crime, and this verdict should send the very clear message that the Justice Department will investigate and vigorously prosecute human traffickers and help secure justice for survivors.”

“The defendants exploited someone who should have been a loved family member to force her to work in their home for over 14 years,” said U.S. Attorney Jessica D. Aber for the Eastern District of Virginia. “Forced labor, the modern-day equivalent of slavery, has no place in our country or district, and we will stop at nothing to prosecute those that commit these or similar crimes. Let this conviction serve as a light to survivors impacted by labor trafficking and as a deterrent to those conspiring to commit heinous labor trafficking crimes.”

The defendants slapped, kicked, and pushed the victim, even beat her with wooden boards, and on one occasion hog-tied her hands and feet and dragged her down the stairs in front of her children. Even after the victim’s husband moved away, the defendants kept the victim in their Virginia home, often forcing her to perform increasingly laborious tasks, including stripping and staining a deck by hand, mowing the one-acre lawn with a push mower, hand-washing and line-drying area rugs, painting the inside and outside of their two-story home, picking out debris from car carpets with a tweezer and constructing a concrete walkway in front of the home — a task that required the victim to haul 80-pound bags of concrete before mixing and pouring cement. 

The evidence further showed that the defendants required the victim to work every day, beginning early each morning. They restricted her food, forbade her from learning to drive or speaking to anyone except the defendants’ family members and prohibited her from calling her family in Pakistan."

Ancient 6th Century Christian City Discovered in Turkey

05/19/2022 Turkey (International Christian Concern) – An underground city was discovered in Turkey and is believed to be the home of roughly 70,000 Christians during the 6th Century facing persecution at the time of the Romans.

The underground city was found in Midyat district of Mardin province. Archeologists report finding “places of worship, silos, water wells and passages with corridors”. Gani Tarkan, the head of excavations, “It was first built as a hiding place or escape area. As it is known, Christianity was not an official religion in the second century. Families and groups who accepted Christianity generally took shelter in underground cities to escape the persecution of Rome or formed an underground city.”

Only about 3 to 5 percent of the city is unearthed but efforts are being made to excavate the entire city. It is believed to be the largest of its kind and is among more than 40 other cities discovered in Turkey. Derinkuyu, another famous underground city, could hold around 20,000 people and was used to hide Christians and Jews between the 8th and 12th centuries.

Midyat is considered “almost an open-air museum” because of its rich history including churches and monasteries.

Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton’s A REPUBLIC UNDER ASSAULT, Available In Paperback

05/17/2022 -
 Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton’s New York Times bestseller book, A Republic Under Assault, The Left’s Ongoing Attack on American Freedom, is now available in a paperback edition which features a new introduction that takes on the current DC corruption crisis: 
Here is the truth: The Biden administration is corrupt but weak. His party barely controls Congress. President Biden has a personal corruption problem, has obvious health challenges, must manage internal warfare between his party’s corrupt corporate wing and its rising Communists, and his moral claim on the presidency is rejected by a massive number of voters.
A Republic Under Assault is Fitton’s third New York Times bestselling book. His first two bestselling books, The Corruption Chronicles and Clean House, revealed what Judicial Watch, the largest watchdog agency in America, uncovered in its battles against Obama secrecy. A Republic Under Assault is a hard-hitting, fast-paced look at how the Radical Left and the Deep State tried to destroy the Trump presidency.

According to Fitton, The Left spent years targeting President Donald J. Trump–but anyone who believes in the U.S. Constitution, believes the United States must have clearly defined and protected borders, believes in the need for a strong military, believes in the value of hard work and faith, and believes in the rule of law and American exceptionalism could be next.

“This book reveals many secrets that the government and corrupt media tried to cover up,” said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton. “In the book, readers will learn how the Left continues to assault our Republic on every front – from undermining election integrity, to illegal spying on Americans, to suppressing free speech, to destroying our borders and the rule of law.”

A Republic Under Assault debuted at #14 on the New York Times’s combined print and ebook list and spent two consecutive weeks on the NYT’s Hardcover Nonfiction list. The book also spent three consecutive weeks in the top three of Publishers Weekly’s Hardcover Nonfiction list and two weeks in the top five of USA Today’s list. Additionally, the book spent three consecutive weeks in the top three of the Wall Street Journal’s combine print/ebook nonfiction list and three consecutive weeks in the top three of the WSJ’s hardcover nonfiction list.

“When it comes to fighting for the American people’s ‘right to know,’ no one holds a candle to Tom Fitton and his team at Judicial Watch. A Republic Under Assault lays bare the condemning facts Judicial Watch continues to expose about ‘Obamagate,’ the Deep State’s seditious coup to bring down Donald Trump, and much more. This is must-reading for every American who wants to save our nation,” said Sean Hannity, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Live Free or Die.

Islamic Cleric Defends the Killing of Christian Student: “Here we Kill”.

The following is an unedited press release from International Christian Concern (ICC) updating the earlier news report Female Christian Student Murdered, Body Burned by Muslim Classmates. Please check out their website at www.persecution.org for more on the persecution and genocide of Christians around the world. 

Islamic Cleric Defends the Killing of Christian Student: “Here we Kill”.

05/16/2022 Nigeria (International Christian Concern) – An Islamic cleric in Northern Nigeria has defended the brutal murder of Deborah Emmanuel, a 25-year-old Christian student who was fatally beaten and burned on May 12th. Deborah was falsely accused of blaspheming the prophet Muhammad because she refused a date from a Muslim boy.

In a video now circling on social media, an Islamic Cleric in Sokoto state, the area in which Deborah was murdered, called for Muslim’s to continue to murder those accused of blaspheming the prophet.

Translated sections from the video read:

“A young person in Sokoto insulted Allah’s prophet yesterday. In Sokoto we kill such. We don’t tolerate such idiocy in Sokoto. This is not Kano, which is a commercial center, where someone called the prophet names, including being an adulterer. They have been dragging about it.

Here we kill. When you touch the prophet we become mad people. No talk of a person being out of his mind. Kill him!

Anyone who touches the prophet, no punishment. Just kill! Even if the person repents or recants, forgiveness is God’s business. We must kill such. Out of his mind, but buys a device, data, opens social media and insults the prophet? Kill him! Don’t report as a grievance to any authority. Kill him! Even if he is an Islamic teacher, much less a useless rascal.

Like Shehu Usman Dan Fodio, we are Mujahedeen (holy warriors) and Jihadists.

No compromise.

Allah curse whoever touches the prophet. Those of you who displayed your wrath, Allah bless you. Kill and disperse!”

Despite the intense persecution that Christians in Nigeria face, Nigeria was removed from the U.S. State Department’s Countries of Particular Concern list in November 2021.

Nigeria: Female Christian Student Murdered, Body Burned by Muslim Classmates

The following is an unedited press release from International Christian Concern (ICC). Please check out their website at www.persecution.org for more on the persecution and genocide of Christians around the world. 

Female Student Murdered, Body Burned by Classmates in Nigeria

05/12/2022 Nigeria (International Christian Concern) – Deborah Emmanuel, a 25-year-old Christian student at the Shehu Shagari College of Education in Nigeria’s Sokoto State, was fatally beaten and her body was burned earlier today, May 12. Her classmates were incensed at a supposedly blasphemous message she had sent to a school WhatsApp group. 

Deborah, who attends an ECWA church and resides with her parents in Sokoto according to International Christian Concern’s (ICC) contacts, apparently got into an argument with her female classmates after sending a WhatsApp message her classmates interpreted as blasphemous. 

A video of Deborah being beaten went viral on local social media channels and has been reviewed by ICC staffers on the ground and analysts overseas. The video shows her lying still on the ground with her bloody left arm attempting to cover her head as male and female students gathered around, beating her with sticks, throwing large stones, and shouting, “Allahu Akbar.” She pleaded with her classmates not to kill her. 

A student from the school who spoke with ICC said, “Muslim students and teachers don’t like Christians in the school.” The student told ICC that school authorities watched as the frenzied mob killed Deborah, but could not stop the Muslim students, though they tried. 

The road to the school and Deborah’s house is currently blocked by students, making it difficult for Christians to move around. The governor of the state asked for the closure of the school without asking for the arrest of the students who committed the crime. 

Despite the intense persecution that Christians in Nigeria face, Nigeria was removed from the U.S. State Department’s Countries of Particular Concern list in November 2021.
