吉爾吉斯緊急代禱呼籲

2010/6/17

 

親愛的朋友:

 

你們許多人可能已經聽說,過去數天在吉爾吉斯南部爆發了可怕的種族暴力的消息。美國有線電視新聞網CNN報導說,目前已有180人被殺,但實際死亡人數可能遠遠高於此數字。吉爾吉斯坦是中亞國家之一,該國南部還有許多人正處在暴亂和屠殺之中。

 

今天上午8點 49分,我收到住在俄羅斯爆亂衝突的起點奧什市的基督徒寄來的以下電子郵件。這是一個懇求世界各地關注正發生在吉爾吉斯坦南部事實真相的呼籲。我轉發出這封信,請求您為這個令人絕望的情況緊急代禱。讓我們在這個時候與吉爾吉斯坦的弟兄姐妹站一同站立。

 

「我們正處在一個戰爭的中心——吉爾吉斯坦的奧什市。令人無法想像的恐怖情況正在這裡發生!事實上媒體只報告了一小部分的實況。這是一場種族的清算(如果可以這麼說的話)。烏茲別克數區的房屋被焚毀,婦女和兒童被無情地殺害,許多屍體和受傷者躺在街上沒有任何人幫助。在酒精和毒品猖獗的影響下,吉爾吉斯的青少年在街頭濫殺無辜,並沿途縱火。吉爾吉斯人和烏茲別克人之間緊張的種族關係已存在多年,但最近因政治目的而被激起。為此,當局也未加以制止衝突,且仍保持沉默。整個形勢看來似乎是事先計劃好,沒有人打算制止它。我有一個親戚,今天冒著巨大的危險出外為他的家人買雜貨。途中,他看到一個傷勢嚴重的老人躺在街上,他想幫助他,把他轉過身來背在背上,立即有一群年輕人跑來極其暴力地開始踢那老人。我的親戚聽到其中一個青年說:「他是吉爾吉斯人,」另一個說:「不,他是烏茲別克人,讓我們瞄準他就開槍。」當我的親戚回來,那老人躺在地上已被活活燒死。雖然政府已正式下令可開槍殺死持有武器者,但實際上沒有一個人執行這命令。這些駭人聽聞的行為繼續發生,警察和士兵在街上巡邏卻未制止暴力。昨晚,有匪徒闖入一個儲存軍隊武器、直升機、坦克等設施的地方。我們無法想像,這些單純的人過去從哪裡獲得這麼多的武器,現在甚至有更多的武器,再加上軍隊的裝備!而最嚴重的是糧食短缺,商店也都遭到破壞。當我們的食物供應耗盡,我們將面臨饑餓。有消息報導人道救援行動正進入,但供應卻極為有限。不久前,他們送來了麵包,但由於某種原因,他們拒絕把它交給俄羅斯。我們不關心的人道主義援助,我們只想活命!一些新聞報導說,局勢已變得愈來愈穩定,事實上是愈來愈差。我寫這封信的目的是想傳達給世界在這裡實際發生的情況。我們擔心,我們會在這場危機中被遺忘和孤立,沒有人來援助我們。身為俄羅斯人,目前他們不會來攻擊我們,但我們相信,這只是早晚問題。人們不計後果的「嗜血」且不停止殺戮。我們生活在一個令人驚駭的國家。請把這個消息,儘可能的傳給別人。這是我們緊急求助的呼籲。」

 

感謝您的代禱和動員其他人一同參與!

URGENT PRAYER FOR KYRGYZSTAN

 

Dear Friend,

 

Many of you may have heard on the news of the horrible ethnic violence that has broken out in Southern Krygyzstan in the past few days. CNN is reporting that 180 people have been killed but it seems that the death toll could be much higher than that already. Krygyzstan is one of the Central Asian countries that is close to my heart. I have many close friends in this country and also personally know people living in the south where the rioting and killing is going on.

I received the following email written at 8:49 am today from a Russian Christian living in the city of Osh where the violence began. It is a cry for help and a plea to get the word out about what is really happening in Southern Kyrgyzstan. I am sending this out to ask for your urgent prayers for this desperate situation. Let us stand together with our brothers and sisters in Kyrgyzstan at this time.

 

We are in the center of a war in Osh, Kyrgyzstan. It is impossible to imagine the horror of the situation here!! The news is only reporting a small portion of what is actually going on. It is ethnic cleansing if you can call it that. Whole blocks of Uzbek homes have been torched and burned. Women and children are being mercilessly killed. Many bodies and injured people are lying in the streets without anyone to help. Kyrgyz youth under the influence of alcohol and drugs are running wild in the streets killing anyone and burning whatever lies in their paths. This ethnic tension (between Kyrgyz and Uzbeks) has existed under the surface for many years but recently has been stirred up for political purposes. Because of this, it appears that authorities are doing nothing to stop the conflict and are silent. It seems that the whole situation was planned out in advance and that no one planned to put a stop to it. One of my relatives went out today at great risk to get groceries for his household. On his way he saw an old man badly injured who was lying in the street. He wanted to help him and turned him over onto his back. Immediately a group of young men ran up and starting kicking the old man fiercely. My relative heard one of these youths say, “He’s Kyrgyz” Another said, “No he’s Uzbek, let’s set him on fire.” When my relative returned the old man lay burned to death. Officially the government has issued an order to shoot to kill anyone with a weapon but in reality no one is carrying out this order. These horrendous acts are continuing to take place. Police and soldiers are patrolling the streets but doing nothing to stop the violence. Last night bandits broke into an army storage facility where weapons, helicopters, tanks, etc were stored. We couldn’t imagine where these simple people had obtained so many weapons before and now they have even more weapons, plus army equipment! On top of all of this there is a shortage of food as the stores have been vandalized. When our food supply runs out we will go hungry. The news is reporting that humanitarian aid is getting in but the supply is very limited. Not long ago bread was given out but for some reason they refused to give it to the Russians. We are not concerned about humanitarian aid, we simply want to live! Some news reports are saying that things are getting more stable but the truth is it is getting worse. My goal in writing this is to the get word out to the world about what is actually happening here. We are afraid that we will be forgotten and alone in this crisis with no one coming to our aid. Presently they are not coming against us as Russians but we believe it is only a matter of time before they turn on us. People have “tasted blood” with no consequences and will not stop the killing. We are living in a state of fear. Please send this information out to as many people as possible. This is our urgent plea for help.

 

Thank you for praying and for mobilizing others to pray!
