I have to admit, sometimes when I am sitting around I am just bored and have no idea what to write about. When I jump in the car or right before I leave to go somewhere, a thought jumps into my mind. The whole time I am gone, all kinds of things pop in my head. By the time I get home, something else has got my attention and I soon decided not to write about whatever it may be that I was thinking about because I am doing something else. So… something always gets me fired up.. and here it is.. you can search for this page on Facebook. It’s called “Christians against Obama’s Re-Election”. Why would Christians not want Obama re-elected? (Because he is Muslim dumb-ass).. Oh yeah, I forgot.. Anyways. So here is the GIF image and the story.
GOD IS THE GOD OF MIRACLES
A Muslim man in Egypt killed his wife because she was reading the Bible and then buried her with
their infant baby and an 8-year old daughter. The girls were buried alive! He then reported to
the police that an uncle killed the kids. 15 days later, another family member died.
When they went to bury him, they found the 2 little girls under the sand -ALIVE! The country is outraged over the incident, and the man will be executed..
The older girl was asked how she had survived and she says:-‘A man wearing shiny white clothes, with bleeding wounds in his hands, came every day to feed us.
He woke up my mom so she could nurse my sister,’ she said. She was interviewed on Egyptian national
TV, by availed Muslim woman news anchor.
She said on public TV, ‘This was none other than Jesus, because nobody else does things like this!’ Muslims believe Isa (Jesus) would do this, but the wounds mean He really was crucified, and it’s clear also that He is alive! But, it’s also clear that the child could not make up a story like this, and there is no way these children could have survived without a true miracle.
Muslim leaders are going to have a hard time to figure out what to do with this, and the popularity of the
Passion movie doesn’t help! With Egypt at the centre of the media and education in the Middle East , you can be sure this story will spread.
Christ is still turning the world upside down! Please let this story be shared.
Great story right? I admit.. it’s a great story. If it was true I would most likely say the child was delusional and that as soon as she had declared it was ‘This was none other than Jesus, because nobody else does things like this!’ She most likely would have had her head cut off.. or maybe not since the Koran does talk about Jesus. So, I had this crazy idea of doing some research (The devils work) and to see if this story was even somewhat true…The other thing is we are led to believe that both children survived but as you can see there is a dead child. So, I guess the feeding did not go well for the younger child or that is the Mom…??… yeah. um… moving on.. so to the searches
UPDATE: A READER FOUND WHERE THE PICTURE CAME FROM
On the night of December 2-3, 1984 an explosion at the Union Carbide (UCIL) released an immense toxic cloud that spread into the surrounding metropolis of Bhopal, Madhya Pradesh, India. Over 2000 people were killed immediately, children and the sick were especially vulnerable; it remains the world’s worst industrial disaster. The next day people struggled to bury their dead family members. Two photographers Pablo Bartholomew and Raghu Rai were present and took this photo as someone was burying their loved one. Bartholomew’s image went on to win the 1984 World Press Photo of the Year.
Around midnight of the night of December 2nd and 3rd a large flow of water entered tank 610, containing 42 tonnes of methyl isocyanate, at the Union Carbide factory. The presence of water in the tank set off a series of chemical reactions that drastically increased the pressure in the tank. This pressure triggered the emergency venting procedure which released a large volume of toxic gases into the atmosphere. Aziza Sultan a Bhopal resident remembers the following:
The toxic cloud mixed with elements in the poorly made factory plumbing spread to the surrounding city exposing over 500,000 people. Two to three thousand people were killed immediately. One week after the disaster another 6000 died and over time another 8000 would die due the effects of the poisonous gas. Satinath Sarangi of the Bhopal Information and Action group claims that, “Even now, there are at least 150,000 people with chronic illnesses of the lungs, of the brain, of the stomach, of reproductive system, people with a range of mental health disorders.
Taking the photo
Photographers Pablo Bartholomew and Raghu Rai rushed to the city to document the disaster. Rai remembers that, “There was a high possibility of journalists and photographers being physically affected by the chemical contamination. But then, there is always an element of risk in any assignment.” The came across a burying party and standing at different angles took a picture of an anonymous man burying a child. Wiping away the dirt to get one last look the two photographers captured the moment just before the grave was filled. In an interview Raghu Rai said “So many bodies were being buried, and this child I photographed, I must have taken six, eight frames, and they were about to pour mud on it … I didn’t want [the moment] to be covered up and buried away because, for me, this expression was so moving and so powerful to tell the whole story of the tragedy.”
This touching event caused both photographers to break down in tears at the site. Had the two not come to cover the disaster the carnage of the toxic might never have been recorded. There is no video coverage or other photos of the event other than those taken by the two photographers. The two did not ask the identity of the man burying his daughter and no one has claimed to be her relative. Her identity remains unknown.
Pablo Bartholomew went on to become a successful and independent free-lance photo journalist. With the coming of the digital age of photography and merging of photo agencies Bartholomew developed an online photo delivery system that allows photographers to remain independent of the big agencies.
Raghu Rai is still a successful photographer and still seeks justice for the Bhopal victims. In 2002 he did a bhopal photo report for Greenpeace.
