North Koreans Are Again Eating Their Children- They are Starving

(By Becky Evans  of the UK Telegraph Post:  27 Jan.  2013)

North Korean leader Kim Jong Un has spent vast sums of money on two rocket launches and prompted fears of a thirdA starving man in North Korea has been executed after murdering his two children for food, reports from inside the secretive state claim.  A ‘hidden famine’ in the farming provinces of North and South Hwanghae is believed to have killed up to 10,000 people and there are fears that incidents of cannibalism have risen.  The grim story is just one to emerge as residents battle starvation after a drought hit farms and shortages were compounded by party officials confiscating food.
Undercover reporters from Asia Press told the Sunday Times that one man dug up his grandchild’s corpse and ate it. Another, boiled his own child for food.  North Korean leader Kim Jong Un has spent vast sums of money on two rocket launches despite reports of desperate food shortages in the country and concerns that 10,000 people have died in a famine.
11 My eyes fail from weeping,

I am in torment within;
my heart is poured out on the ground
because my people are destroyed,
because children and infants faint
in the streets of the city.
12 They say to their mothers,
“Where is bread and wine?”
as they faint like the wounded
in the streets of the city,
as their lives ebb away
in their mothers’ arms.

19 Arise, cry out in the night,
as the watches of the night begin;
pour out your heart like water
in the presence of the Lord.
Lift up your hands to him
for the lives of your children,
who faint from hunger
at every street corner.

4 Because of thirst the infant’s tongue
sticks to the roof of its mouth;
the children beg for bread,
but no one gives it to them.

9 Those killed by the sword are better off
than those who die of famine;
racked with hunger, they waste away
for lack of food from the field.
10 With their own hands compassionate women
have cooked their own children,
who became their food
when my people were destroyed.

11 The Lord has given full vent to his wrath;
he has poured out his fierce anger.
He kindled a fire in Zion
that consumed her foundations.
Lamentations 2:11-12, 19, 4: 4,6,9-11

I can only add that I call  the Lord’s sense of justice and righteousness on this man, this fat little man, who took the bread out of people’s mouths and ate it himself.  Worse, he forbade the Bread of Life to his People by outlawing Christianity, thus depriving these people from the comfort they would have had in their misery. Lord, please help the North Korean people. Please have mercy on them- they are victims of their horrible leadership. Amen.
