It is a stated fact that Africa faces a Christinizational tide that looks like a flood, which is about to drown it if not necessary measures are taken to fight back and resist these missionary legions which began to permeate in the jungles, deserts, plains, hills, and majestic mountains peaks of the continent.
Missionary centers endeavor by all its available educational, medical and media means to pursue Islam in its strongholds in Africa, forcing Muslims to Christianization and renouncing their Islam.
These centers own material, educational, medical, and enormous political possibilities, in addition to their huge budgets which come from the major colonial powers and estimated by hundreds of billions of dollars.
The Egyptian Foreign Ministry warned recently in a letter was sent to Al Azhar Al Sharif against the spread of Christianity among Muslims in many African countries, especially the Niger, Sierra Leone, Chad, Guinea and Liberia, at the hands of missionary groups that exploit the economic problems, famines, and humanitarian disasters which those populations suffer.
The ministry explained that the Christianizational organizations are intensifying its work, especially in Congo and Niger under the pressure of poverty.
Those organizations were successful in Africa especially "Jehovah witnesses," "Companion Brothers," "Karatas," "Baptist Church of America," "Labor for Christ," and "Labor for the development of the Niger."
The Ministry of Foreign Affairs warned in particular against the latter organization "Labor for the development of the Niger" which has taken the Niger as its base to the rest of the African countries that suffer from poverty.
Furthermore, the ministry said that the Egyptian embassy there sent a full report about the work of that organization and the methods of evangelizing Muslims through their enrollment in schools and building health services to them.
The report also pointed to the declined role of many charitable Islamic organizations and Islamic Relief in Niger, where Muslims make up 95% of its population who are estimated by 11 millions because of the campaign waged by the West against these organizations under the claim of "funding terrorists," which provided an opportunity for Christianizational organizations to increase its activity and presence in that African country.
The Egyptian Foreign Ministry in its letter to Al Azhar demanded the quick move to provide support for Muslims in Niger to fight back these campaigns which target the Islamic presence there.
• Africa is a Christian continent!!
Transforming Africa to a Christian continent is an old Christian dream, specifically in 1993; the international Christianization league set a prime goal to which it directed all its potentials, which was transforming Africa into a Christian continent by 2000 because of the Christians' control of the political, educational, and economic life in a number of the continent countries.
Pope "Paul" in his speech on the occasion of the anniversary of the birth of Christ in Rome in 1993 announced that goal explicitly when he received the delegation of the African bishops.
He said: "You shall have your own church in Africa. It is time for Africa to rise and do its divine mission and on you, bishops, lies the great responsibility which is the Christianization of the entire Africa." The initial budget allocated to the start was (3.5) billion dollars, whereas the Christians have dedicated all their material and scientific powers in full coordination between the Vatican, the World Council of Churches, and other missionary bodies in order to achieve their ambitions in evangelizing the continent; it is worth mentioning that the Pope paid three visits during the last five years to Africa.
When the year 2000 came without achieving their dream, the Christians hastened to change their plans and methods, and set up a new strategy to evangelize the continent by the end of 2010 or 2015.
• Christianizional interest in Africa:
The interest of missionaries in this continent has some merit, where it is the only continent that can be called a Muslim continent among the world's continents, and everything indicates that Islam is the religion of the future in this continent and the future is for Islam. The present reality of the continent is witnessing a significant Islamic development that is proven by the following facts:
1- About 70% of the Muslim Arab society is in Africa.
2- 75% of the Arab-Islamic land is in Africa.
3- More than 60% of the total population are Muslims.
4- The Islamic call witnesses a great response from the Africans and is moving fast and firm, therefore it is worth to be called the "Muslim continent."
Missionaries are afraid of Islam and know its prevalence and danger on the Christian call in Africa and other continents.
Mr. Plus said: "The Islamic religion is the obstacle in the way of Christianization in Africa, and only Muslims are our arch-enemy because the spread of the Gospel does not find opposition from the ignorance of the population, their idolism, nor the struggle of Christian and non-Christian nations."
Philip Vondasi said: "Islam constitutes a barrier in the face of our civilization which is based on Christian effects and on Cartesian materialism. Hence, Islam threatens our French culture in Black Africa."
• Christianization and colonialism:
The plans of Christianization in Africa started long time ago, closely linked to colonialism and keep up with it, but rather from which it derived all aid and support, and sought to install its influence and spread through it.
Catholic missionaries have entered Africa since the fifteenth century during the Portuguese discoveries.
In the late seventeenth and eighteenth centuries, the Protestant societies have begun to show up.
After the death of Leningstone in 1873, who made his journey which removed the curtain away from the Central Africa, the main ports of Africa were wide open before the European missionaries.
The facts and figures show the volume and power of evangelical activity in Africa, where an old statistic was issued in 1976 showed that the Catholic Church owned about one and half million churches in South Africa and the number of missions existed in 38 African countries was (111,000) missions, whereas some of them own planes to transfer doctors, nurses, and medicines for the treatment of patients in the courtyards.
The number of missionaries in Africa in 1985 reached more than 113 thousand evangelists who oversee the education of more than five million students.
Hospitals and clinics set up by missionaries reached 1600 clinics and hospitals.
The value of financial support for missionaries reached 3.5 billions per year, the number of theological schools to train missionaries and pastors in Africa reached 500 theologian schools in addition to 21 thousand church institutes in the entire continent which well-train missionaries.
In 1985, Pope John Paul II visited Africa and spoke to 80 thousand young Muslims in Casablanca Stadium in Morocco, whereas he opened the Cathedral of St. Paul in Abidjan, which can accommodate eight thousand people, the largest Christian church in Africa and the second in the world after the Vatican.
In 1980, 14 states in Africa prevented the entry of missionaries, but in 1999 three countries allowed them. In 1996, the missionaries in Africa owned more than 52 radio stations, whereas Muslims owned one radio station.
• U.S. Support:
The American support for Christianization did not stop especially in the black continent.
The U.S. former president Carter instead of establishing a social activity in USA like most U.S. presidents (the Library of Reagan, the Center of Roosevelt, the Kennedy Center, the Hoover Center, and the University of Eisenhower), he established with his wife the Carter Center in Atlanta supported by his church to search for peace in the world, or as he said: "We open our chests and hearts to the people to spread the word of God."
The center, which he supported, has played an important role in the world such as serving medical aid to women in Georgia and building houses for the poor in Florida and Africa, as it has prominent activities in more than thirty African countries.
The center interferes in South Sudan by its men, possibilities, and missionaries. Carter did not conceal his interest in Sudan, particularly southern Sudan, and expressed that so explicitly.
The Christianizational campaigns enter Africa under the guise of the humanitarian aid. There are 5000 doctors, 7000 nurses, 289 shelters for orphans, 195 for the elderly, 163 for the blind, 1050 pharmacies which distribute free medicines, 8000 well-equipped hospitals, 17 thousand medical centers, 171 colleges and higher institutes, 18.571 primary schools, 10 thousand secondary schools, and 2000 vocational schools.
• Missionaries and the crisis of Darfur:
Wherever suffering, wars, and human disasters exist, the missionaries are found because they are like "fleas live on human blood".
The Christianizational organizations have infiltrated to Darfur under the cover of gunfire and acts of mutual violence between the rebels of the region and the Sudanese government forces and began to focus their efforts on the refugees camps who were displaced by war to the extent that the number of missionary organizations in the region reached 30 organizations working under the guise of humanitarian organizations.
Caritas, the global Catholic organization, declared explicitly that it targets 125 thousand Muslims in Darfur, which is a territory where there is no church and the proportion of Muslims is 100%.
Duncan McLaren, the Secretary General of the Organization, claimed that there is a million people in Darfur who are exposed to death and in need of protection; moreover this huge number is an easy catch to missionary organizations.
The Norwegian Church Aid admitted that its sponsorship of more than 45 thousand refugees from Darfur in three camps in Chad, and of course they are subject to a flood of missionary ideas.
• Somalia and Christianization:
The civil raging war —which exhausted the Somali people and displaced hundreds of thousand citizens inside and outside the Somali borders— prompted Christianizational groups to go there, particularly inside the refugees camps to spread their missionary ideas.
Moreover, the Christianizational organizations have the ability to change their methods according to the nature of peoples to reach their final goal which is convincing the people with their missionary ideas, even if that was at the expense of their needs, destitution, and the suffering of those people.
In early 2000, the U.S. Foreign Ministry declared that it had sent 70 missionary groups to South Africa, who were qualified and trained to work under hard conditions in the heart of the forests, wars, and diseases.
Besides the professional missionaries, there were doctors, nurses, engineers, philosophers, and scientists.
These groups were the vanguard of more than 3.5 million evangelists who declared their readiness to go to any place on earth to call for the religion of Christ, most of them are now working in European and American institutions and institutes that serve the missionaries working abroad.
• Christianization in Chad:
Chad is one of the African countries which has won great missionary attention because the new strategy for evangelizing the continent by 2010 or 2015 included Chad because missionaries are very powerful in that region.
The history of missionaries in Chad is new. The beginning of Christianization was in 1820 where missionaries were working under the guise of exploration and they hid their goals because the government at that time was Islamic, which was the kingdom of Wadi in eastern Chad. After the missionaries had stayed a long time in the country without people knowing their identity and goals, they decided to go to the south.
In 1894, when the French troops arrived at Chad intensively, the missionary teams belonging to the Catholic Church spread, and the presence of the French troops played an important role in Christianizing a large number of populations.
Since then, Christianization has been working hard with its missionaries and methods to drive Muslims out of their religion and Christianize the pagans who have no religion in Chad.
The great Christianizational interest in Chad became quite clear in the missionary budget which reached 3 billion dollars in 1993.
When the cardinals in Rome gathered to draw the map of Africa in 1993, they recommended the Christianization of the Muslim part of Chad.
They said: "Chad is an important region and any idea shows up there spreads very fast because it is in the middle of the African roads.
Moreover, it is about to begin a new era of its economic life and may become the third economic region in Africa according to the American economic centers.
There were about 2160 missionary organizations working there in 2002 of which important were: Oxfam, Catholic Relief, and Word Vision which their budget reached 40 million dollars in 2002.
As for the number of missionaries in that year, it reached 6534 evangelists, including 260 evangelists who were fluent in different local languages, and 15 were fluent in classical Arabic, 7 memorizing the Qur'an, 3 were scholars of Hadith and Fiqh, and 30 from the people who received their education in Muslim schools then they became Christians.
They all got high salaries and were equipped with modern means of transportation such as light aircrafts and cargo planes, cars, boats, and motorcycles.
Add to that huge crusader raid, the French-American conflict to dominate the wealth of Chad and the pursuit of America to spread the American and secular culture among Muslims to form another challenge to the Islamic movement and Muslims in Chad, trying to set laws and regulations to ensure their crusader Protestant dominance in Chad.
One of these attempts to spread secularism was trying to set the law of family planning (personal status of Muslims), and the most dangerous provisions of this law was the sexual freedom of women or women's liberation!
To confirm its dominance on Chad, 97% of the Chad oil project, which was estimated by (5.24) billion dollars, was funded by a group of U.S. companies (Exxon Mobil 40%, Petronas 35%, and Chevron 25%).
As for other wealth such as gold, the Korean companies, which were working for the benefit of USA, began their work in large areas of the country.
With the magnitude of that raid, the Chadians should prepare themselves to fight back because it is not accepted that 2160 missionary organizations in Chad against eight Muslim organizations only.
• Uganda and the Christianizional tide:
Uganda is considered one of the African countries on which the missions of Christianization focused.
Muslims in Uganda have suffered in the last decades political and economic marginalization, even though they make up 40% of the population of the country, but this proportion decreased to 20% of the population who are estimated by 25 millions, i.e., the number of Muslims is about 5 millions.
Muslims in Uganda are suffering from a bundle of problems including poverty, disease, ignorance, and backwardness due to the illiteracy that has spread in them. We all know that education in Uganda has begun at the hands of missionaries, which caused the majority of Muslim to keep away from them for fear on the doctrine of their children, especially that Uganda has experienced throughout its history waves of Christianization targeting the Muslim regions, taking advantage of poverty and need, and spread out their hands to the people of these areas through the establishment of hospitals, schools and care centers for orphans and hungry people in sync with the intensified presence of the Jews.
The World Zionism did not forget that Uganda was one of the three countries chosen by the British Colonial Secretary Chamberlain as a national homeland for the Jews.
Therefore, this Christian-Zionist inheritance affected badly the Muslims' situations in Uganda because they suffer extreme poverty in some territories and deprived the country from any development plans, which contributed to the increase of poverty and allowed Christianizional organizations to drown the country, headed by the evangelical Church, which considered Uganda a fertile ground for the Christianization: The "no borders" organization and Baptist missionaries.
The thing which promotes the work of these missionaries is the presence of a strong network of local radio stations, consisting of 4 radio stations on top is Kerto live, Radio Uganda, Radio Maria Top, and Radio Wa`d, moreover the presence of Masonic clubs, such as the Rotary and the Lions.
Although the Christianizational climate is prepared for these groups, the achieved results are not suitable for their expenses. Muslims in Uganda have challenged all circumstances and held firm with their religion, not to mention that Uganda is one of the countries in which pagans embrace Islam on a daily basis.
However, the intensified presence of the Christianization groups contributed to the increase of its influence to the extent that they gave orders to the Parliament, which includes 35 Muslim members from the 308 members, to adopt a change in personal status laws.
This step has encouraged Muslims to feel their importance in the society and the need to exploit this role in extracting concessions from the government and increase the share of Muslims in the cabinet reshuffle in which 3 Muslims hold ministerial positions.
The ambition has reached its peak after the call of the Mufti of Uganda, Sha`ban Ramadan Mubaje, in which he demanded the right of Muslims in obtaining the position of Vice President.
Mubaje transferred that request to President Museveni, who welcomed that request which indicated that Muslims in Uganda started to shake off the dust of the past and get ready to get rights equal to their numbers.
Muslims did not witness political rise except in the era of President Idi Amin, who came to power through a military coup under the rule of President Milton Obote who tried to promote the status of Islam in his country.
He reduced the freedom of these missionaries, expelled the Israeli diplomatic mission from Kampala and arrested its members, decided to join the Organization of Islamic Conference, and launched war against the apostate groups such as Bahaism and Qadianism, which have worked on igniting the war between Uganda and Tanzania and ended with the defeat of Idi's troops, and he was expelled from power and the power returned to Obote.
Since that date, i.e., by the end of the seventies of the last century, Muslims have suffered a terrible political marginalization.
Although they make up 20% of the country's population, they are deprived of accessing the leadership positions either in power or in the military.
• The progress of Islam in Africa:
The question now is: Will the Christianizional plans by all these possibilities succeed in changing Africa to a Christian continent? The reality of the continent confirms something else because there are more than 365 million African Muslims whose percentage exceeds 65% of the population of Africa at the beginning of the new millennium.
Missionaries with all their possibilities may be able to tempt some of the poor of the continent who are being killed by poverty, hunger, and sickness to embrace Christianity.
However, Islam is still strong in its African stronghold and is experiencing a growing rise despite the lack of the Islamic Call efforts; if Muslims had exerted quarter of the efforts done by the missionaries, the entire continent would have become Muslim and the number of Christians and pagans would have been diminished before the Islamic rumbling tide.
Missionaries have realized the progress done by Islam in Africa and started to warn against that progress. Dr. "SAS Conradi" from (the poor world) missionary organization said: Some Christianization leaders in Africa, including "Dave Sever," the Director of higher studies in the evangelical College in Illinois, was deeply shocked by the great progress of the Islamic Call in Africa to the extent that he called for the convening of a conference in Africa to missionary organizations to discuss the progress of Islam in the Christian areas of influence.
Dr. Conradi warned the Christianizational organizations that the future of Christianity and Christianization is in great danger because of the spread of Islam among the Christians after the departure of Western missionaries, and the border areas between Islam and Christianity in Africa are facing lack of funding.
He added: If the funds of churches run out, Islam shall penetrate these borders and advance toward the Christian territories in Africa, moreover the populations of these areas will remain poor and shall be an easy target for Muslim preachers.
• Ways of confrontation:
There is no doubt that the present and the future of Islam in Africa calls us to vigilance and awakening, so we have to educate our brothers and help them as much as possible to stand before that Christianizational tide which attacks the African continent.
If we search for ways to combat Christianization, we will find that fighting is the task of every Muslim according to his potentials so as the Muslim efforts unite in the face of their enemies. As long as we realize the danger of Christianization in Africa and the tragedy which it has done in the Muslim continent, we should do our best toward our religion and Muslim brothers.
Muslim scholars have identified a set of useful means in this regard, of which:
1- Every Muslim should work to establish the religion of Allah (Glory be to Him) in himself, his family, and those who are under his custody because the society consists of individuals.
2- Paying attention to the activity of missionaries, complete vigilance, and the creation of committees or associations to follow Christianization and reveal its plans, and the issuance of books and publications that pursue it by all African languages.
3- Establishing strong radio stations throughout the whole African continent and in all languages to spread Islam.
4- Setting up a world Islamic conference to discuss the plans of missionaries, expose them, and spread Islam.
5- The establishment of charitable medical Islamic institutions, hospitals, and dispensaries along with the Da`wah (call) efforts.
6- The establishment of Islamic charitable schools, universities, and scientific and technical institutes to teach the people the religion of Islam and the true faith, equip them with scientific expertise, and rescue them out of ignorance.
7- Supporting the efforts of the callers in the African continent so that they would be able to spread Islam and fight Christianization, heresies, and superstitions.
8- The establishment of main centers for Islamic Call and establishing branches in all parts of Africa, and providing them with Islamic books, pamphlets, and tapes.
9- The establishment of houses for the elderly, orphans, widows, caring about them and graduating preachers from them.
10- Using all media to fight against Christianization, and spreading Islam through channels, computer networks, Internet, newspapers, magazines, tapes, books and bulletins.
11- Using correspondence through mail, fax, and e-mail.
12- Moving in times of disasters, wars, and crises to relieve Muslims and invite them to the true religion of Allah.
13- Spreading the Arabic language in Africa, training the African teachers, and teaching them their educational and Da`wah duties to use them in their countries.
14- Sending preachers and knowledge seekers from all over the Muslim world to Africa to teach the people their religion and call them to Islam.
15- The reconstruction of Masjids in different regions of Africa and providing them with libraries and qualified preachers.
16- The establishment of Islamic centers that contain integrated Masjids, schools, and libraries.
17- Creating scholarship programs in the Muslim countries to accommodate the African students in all sciences to qualify them to become preachers.
18- Calling to Allah among non-Muslims such as the Christians and the pagans; as being said: The best way to defend is to attack.
19- The Muslim institutions should work to intensify their activities among Muslims in Africa, especially young people and the establishment of camps for them, and informing them of the dangers they face.
20- The Islamic groups in Africa should fight Christianization, and setting programs for that purpose.
21- Publishing the stories of the newly converters to Islam among the Christians.
