"Algiers, 31 Dec. (AKI) - Lawmakers from the Algerian Islamic political party of al-Nahda have asked the government to intervene to slow down "the activities of Christian missionaries in the country".Algerian MP Muhammad Hudeibi was quoted as saying this in the local el-Khabar newspaper.

For some years, the local media in Algeria have reported on the activities of a number of missionaries, particularly those from evangelical and Protestant churches, who have succeeded in converting entire Algerian families to Christianity, particularly those who come from the eastern area of Kabilia."

The Islamic party also asked the Algerian ulema or Islamic scholars and imams to give their opinion on the issue of Christian evangelism.

Gina Khan on Breaking the Silence

Gina Khan made international headlines last February when she started to call to public attention the Islamization of Britain, and she quickly became one of our heros.

"I asked Dad why he built a madrassa and not a girls' school or even a hospital, which would have benefited the whole village, and he said, 'Even if just one of these children from my bloodline memorises the Quran off by heart - 7 generations of my bloodline will go straight to heaven.'"
