Father Zakaria Botros: Threatened into Silence

The renowned Coptic Christian priest Father Zakaria Botros was scheduled to speak in Vienna tonight, but the atmosphere created by Muslim threats was such the event had to cancelled.

Below is the press release sent out by the Wiener Akademikerbund concerning this unfortunate turn of events. Many thanks to JLH for the translation:

Concerning: Cancellation of Presentation by Pater Zakaria

Dear Friends!

Father Zakaria BotrosLast week, with the greatest joy and in expectation of a courageous confrontation of the problems surrounding Islam, the promises of multiculturalism and diversity as well as the erosion of our value system, we invited you to a lecture/presentation with the Coptic scholar. Islam researcher and charismatic Christian missionary, Father Zakaria Botros.

After meticulous preparation and with Father Zakaria anticipating his first public appearance in Europe, it is with a heavy heart that we must cancel the event, which was scheduled for Thursday, May 6, 2010 at 7:00 PM.

For reasons of numerous Islamic threats of violence and intolerable pressure upon our oriental Christian friends, insistence upon holding the event would be not only risky, but absolutely irresponsible.

We are saddened to discover that — in an allegedly free country such as Austria, and despite precautions taken by the authorities in a serious and professional manner — it is no longer possible to pursue critical clarity and tell the truth.

- – - - – - – - -

Father Zakaria is surely the highest-ranking and most profound critic of Islam. He does not merely reveal the theological and philosophical errors of Islam. For years, he has generously and successfully spread the spiritual offer of the joyous message of Jesus Christ among his beloved Muslim brethren.

We were aware that rejection of the false path of the “interreligious equality mania” is presently not considered “politically correct.” However, we hoped that an honest debate about truth in all possible forms of expression would be possible without violence, even in a time of relativistic destruction in the Republic of Austria.

Despite the disappointment, Father Zakaria’s heart is in Austria. His and our efforts toward a lasting order which rest upon the bases of peace, brotherly love, rule of law and prosperity must not die.

We regret any inconvenience this cancellation may cause you, and apologize for it.

Sincerely,

Vienna Akademikerbund
Citizens’ Movement Pax Europa
Community of Oriental Christians

    Wow, that’s creepy. But, what does that tell you about Islam when one can’t question or critique it without threat to one’s life?

    So when ‘Ahmed Didat’ was hopping all over europe, saying all he wants about the Bible and Christianity, he was left to speak all the lies and giving snaky speeches freely, and it only needed a couple of hours on a london stage with one person ‘Dr. Shorosh’ to shut him up for ever. He left the stage embarrased and shreaded in pieces infront of the hundreds of muslims that we there watching live.

    The muslims become violant because he’s exposing them, he’s embarrasing them, they can’t face the truth.

    And shame on Europe and West, cause they’re loosing their freedom and falling to their knees to the devilish cult, or in other words islam.

    I was a Muslim and I accepted Jesus my Lord , my God , my saver, my protector, and my life teacher.
    I truly come to believe Jesus is God and he is some of god of All people and the Glob.
    I found the truth I was looking for to believe Jesus is truly son of God as John the baptize said.
    about Muslim, I was fooled by it like many Muslims, Islam is not the religion of God. Islam was created by the Jews to form an army of many people from the Saudi Arabia to Egypt to Iraq and Iran. to free the Jews from the Roman empire. and the God of Mohammad was a Jewish rabies he told him he can do every thing Mohammad wants and his follower even to have many wives and servants to have sex with, without married, just to free the Jewish people and have every thing. but Mohammad killed those Jewish who did not know what the mission as it was a top secrets.
    nad all the sex sin around the world by Christian was created by the Muslims, I found out the translation of the Quran. it is like Islam did nothing a new every thing the sinner were doing Islam did in deferent form.

    If we have many blessed preachers like you , there would not be muslims in the whole world , and the cross of Lord Jesus would be lifted up over Mecca itself.

    Islam,that loving and caring ‘religion of kill’.

  17. vixi said

    i was a christian and converted to the true faith of Islam and took Jesus with me. All thanks to the lies of such people as Boutros who i would check his claims about Islam only to find out he lied and perverted the truth…from then on i kept checking trusted source and just found lies after lies. Not only he lied about the Quran but also about the bible. This is one of the reasons i converted:

    i checked the Arabic which a fellow Christian read it to me in Arabic to english without me telling him why…..found his lies are unbeleivable…..Hamdu li Allah that God opened my eyes and heart. I rescued myself and Jesus.

      Well, good luck with your “true faith”. Just don’t forget that you as a woman – I presume you are a woman – have only have the rights of a man. Tell that to your daughter when she asks you why she cannot divorce her husband who has the right to beat her according to 4:34.

      • saq said

        A woman in Islam has more rights than in Christianity. Vixi congrats to you my sister you have found the true path.

      • paulipoldie said

        I don’t care much about right in Christianity, but those in a democratic country.
        Would you kindly name those rights in Islam?
        And finally —- This is not the right place for your dawa. Good bye.

      • Bruce Ramsey said

        You say Botros is a liar. What has he said that was a lie? You presented this video, but, it seemed to be taken out of context. Instead of presenting a video, and saying he’s a liar, can’t you just post right here with better evidence of what you feel he lied about? He usually presents from the Qur’an what he feels is WRONG about the Qur’an, like, how the Qur’an says it’s a “confirmation of previous Scriptures” (i.e. The Bible), which makes no sense IF the Bible is corrupted. Being the case, present, right here, what he said that was untrue about the Qur’an, ok?

    psalms 139:16:

    16 رَأَتْنِي عَيْنَاكَ وَأَنَا مَازِلْتُ جَنِيناً؛ وَقَبْلَ أَنْ تُخْلَقَ أَعْضَائِي كُتِبَتْ فِي سِفْرِكَ يَوْمَ تَصَوَّرْتَهَا.

    Father Boutros lied about it
