One person commenting on how non-violent we are said : "Jehovah's Witness? You cant make them pick up a butter knife. They are like the sheep of religion." :D

Very nice report! People really do know us as non-violent, peaceful people.

And what a witness this is giving to the whole world!

The Jehovah`s Witnesses, an extremist sect or a reedition of the purple triangles?

Excelent article in the venezuelan pro goverment press, asking Venezuelan chancellor Delcy Rodriguez to use her contacts in the russian government to ask for a stop to the jw ban.

The article is in spanish and I`m short on time to translate it. Sorry.

Interesting - and later on - how many of these same governments would look like hypocrites if they were to turn against us?  It will all be in writing and all over the internet.

..yet we know that will happen eventually...interesting....

The second paragraph in the article really gave me goosebumps: 

 

“It is wrong to apply flawed counterterrorism laws to those who seek to practice their faith,” said Chairman Wicker. “The Russian government is exploiting genuine threats of violent extremism to undermine what little religious freedom remains in that country. This distracts from real efforts to fight terrorism. I urge the Russian government to drop the case immediately.”

This appears to be an open letter written by a brother who is also a journalist for this newspaper:

This is from a newspaper that is local in my area!  Fort Wayne is only 40 minutes away!  I had no idea we had a brother who was a journalist for that paper! One small spark can start a mighty flame!
