The Sacrifice of Kenji Goto

Kenji Goto was a Japanese video journalist who converted to Christianity in 1997. The media widely reported his death at the hands of Islamic State jihadists. But the story of why he traveled to Syria is a much deeper story of love and loyalty. Kenji laid down his life in an attempt to rescue his troubled friend, Haruna Yukawa. Here's Jay Smith discussing Kenji's sacrifice:

My Fellow Christians,
Obama is a confirmed muslim, I thank the Lord that the American constitution limits the Presidency to 2 terms.

He just made the muslim all too well known argument, at the national breakfast meeting!
I am in total SHOCK!

I am an Asian, Please fellow Americans dont let him get away with what he said about the Crusades, which was formed DUE TO MUSLIM AGGRESSION, just like what is happening in real time NOW, in Iraq & Syria.

In the name of Christ, is that "WHAT CHRIST ADVOCATED"?

I pray the Evangelical Churches of America,(cant depend on the dumb@#$ Catholics to get off their pathetic "politically correct horse" to correct this perversion)
TO Take Him to Task!

An even lesser known fact is that Haruna Yukawa is known as Yukawa Harukana in Japan {see this link:}). It looks like he converted to Islam. On his facebook page, a certain Hossam Najjar commented on his last post, addressing him as "Abu Mujahed" - Father of Jihad.

Islam is not judge by a Muslims like Osama Abdullah or ISIS, Islam is judge by what Muhammad taught Muslims by Quran. Same way Christianity is not judge by a people like me. Christianity is judge by what Christ teaches to His followers. Jesus’ bottom line teaching as found in the Bible is to love your enemy and Muhammad’s bottom line teaching is as found in the Quran is to kill infidels. Can anybody deny these teachings of these two religions?

Muslims attacks Christians, Hindus, Buddhists, Jews, atheists, etc. all non-Muslims by the teaching of Quran, by the horrible name “Allah-Hu-Akbar”. But on the contrary Christians, even though ISIS declared Jihad against Christian and mainline Muslims supported them by remaining silence, but no Christian group declared crusade against Muslims. President Obama to satisfy Muslims mischaracterizes Christianity.
