Muslim Extremists Pressure Morocco Government to kick out the Christian Aid Workers!
by Joie Pirkey March 15, 2010
A colleague of mine from the Biblical Missiology Group sent me an email a few days back about the orphanages in Morocco. I have read a number of news reports on the situation there and felt that I should send it out to my newsletter list. Please pray about this situation. The outside world must put pressure on Morocco to repeal these acts. If not, if we remain silent, many will suffer and the precedence for Muslim Extremists standing against Christian activity will be bolstered.
"All of the 33 children in the Village of Hope orphanage in Morocco will be abandoned by their foster parents. Twenty multinational staff were given 3 days to leave the country without any explanation of what would happen to the children. Simultaneously in various cities workers and national believers have been questioned and some booked for a night. A total of 30 Christian workers have been deported, in some cases without a chance to go home and pick up some clothes. This is part of a crackdown on Christian activities in Morocco.
Many are fearful they would be next.
Morocco is a democratic monarchy. They pride themselves of allowing freedom of religion. This crack down has been caused by pressure from Muslim extremists against missionary work."
