A Little Gun History Lesson


In 1929, the Soviet Union established gun control. From 1929 to 1953, about 20 million dissidents, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.
------------------------------

In 1911, Turkey established gun control. From 1915 to 1917, 1.5 million Armenians, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.
---------------------------

Germany established gun control in 1938 and from 1939 to 1945, a total of 13 million Jews and others who were unable to defend themselves were rounded up and exterminated.
------------------------------

China established gun control in 1935. From 1948 to 1952, 20 million political dissidents, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.
----------------------------

Guatemala established gun control in 1964. From 1964 to 1981, 100,000 Mayan Indians, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.
------------------------------

Uganda established gun control in 1970. From 1971 to 1979, 300,000 Christians, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.
------------------------------

Cambodia established gun control in 1956. From 1975 to 1977, one million 'educated' people, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.
-----------------------------
Defenseless people rounded up and exterminated in the 20th Century because of gun control: 56 million.
------------------------------

It has now been 12 months since gun owners in Australia were forced by new law to surrender 640,381 personal firearms to be destroyed by their own government, a program costing Australia taxpayers more than $500 million dollars. The first year results are now in:

Australia-wide, homicides are up 3.2 percent

Australia-wide, assaults are up 8.6 percent

Australia-wide, armed robberies are up 44 percent (yes, 44 percent)!

In the state of Victoria alone, homicides with firearms are now up 300 percent.

Note that while the law-abiding citizens turned them in, the criminals did not, and criminals still possess their guns!

It will never happen here? I bet the Aussies said that too!

While figures over the previous 25 years showed a steady decrease in armed robbery with firearms, this has changed drastically upward in the past 12 months, since criminals now are guaranteed that their prey is unarmed.
There has also been a dramatic increase in break-ins and assaults of the elderly. Australian politicians are at a loss to explain how public safety has decreased, after such monumental effort and expense was expended in successfully ridding Australian society of guns. The Australian experience and the other historical facts above prove it.

You won't see this data on the US evening news, or hear politicians disseminating this information.

Guns in the hands of honest citizens save lives and property and, yes, gun-control laws adversely affect only the law-abiding citizens.

Take note my fellow Americans, before it's too late! The next time someone talks in favor of gun control, please remind him of this history lesson.

With Guns............We Are "Citizens".
Without Them........We Are "Subjects".

During W.W.II the Japanese decided not to invade America because they knew most Americans were ARMED!

Note: Admiral Yamamoto who crafted the attack on Pearl Harbor had attended Harvard U 1919-1921 & was Naval Attache to the U. S. 1925-28.

Most of our Navy was destroyed at Pearl Harbor & our Army had been deprived of funding & was ill prepared to defend the country. It was reported that when asked why Japan did not follow up the Pearl Harbor attack with an invasion of the U. S. Mainland, his reply was that he had lived in the U. S. & knew that almost all households had guns.

Do you naively believe that the government will protect your rights?

Do you naively believe the police will arrive at your home in time to prevent crimes of violence or other criminal acts?

The government has thousands of gun laws on the books and most of the states individually have thousands more. At last count there were over 25,000 laws on gun control collectively throughout the United States. Which one of those thousands has stopped criminal activity? Can you point one out for me?

The left reminds us of our freedom of speech rights at every opportunity, yet believe that gun control is needed to stop crime and that the 2nd Amendment doesn't apply in this day and age.
Freedom of speech is great for all of us living here in the U.S.
So is the right to own firearms, guaranteed by the 2nd Amendment.

But I have to ask, how long do you think your 1st Amendment rights will last if every law abiding citizen in this country has their 2nd Amendment rights revoked and are forced to turn in their guns or risk becoming criminals?

Does this ring any bells?
With Guns............We Are "Citizens".
Without Them........We Are "Subjects".

And as “Subjects” we are at the mercy of government or any despot seeking control over us.

Defend your rights before they are gone.

Hillary and Obama, "First"?


The Democrats would like us to believe that Hillary Clinton is the first female to seek the Democratic nomination for president and Barrak Obama the first black man to run.

Oh and lest we forget, the first “black President” was Bill Clinton you will recall and if Hillary wins, Slick Willy could become the first black ex-president to occupy the WH…the dynamic duo…sure to wreck this country…oh but don’t ask a Democrat about that. You’ll likely get “Well! That was then, this is no! Who cares about history or truth?"

Once again deception and misleading information seem to lead the way for Democrats who rely upon America’s seemingly short memories.

Hillary is NOT the first woman nor is Obama the first black man. Jesse Jackson was the first black man to run for president and launched his first campaign for the Democratic presidential nomination in 1984. Shirley Chisolm was the first black [and] woman to run. This election is not historic by any stretch of the imagination despite what they would like us to believe. It is just another Democrat SOP (Standard Operating Procedure)…nothing new…business as usual from the far left in today's politics.

The facts do not back up the Democrats claim. As evidence, I submit the following:

June 8, 1872

OUR NOMINEES.

These are Victoria C. Woodhull, the woman; and Frederick Douglass, the Negro.

In the ninety-sixth year of the republic of the United States, they represent classes, who may justly be termed, even yet, the pariahs of our modern system of civilization.

In the nomination of Victoria C. Woodhull for the office of President, the Equal Rights Party virtually arraigns the despotism over woman as exercised in this Republic, as being, in this particular, more intolerant than that of the monarchies of Europe, and points those who dispute this statement to the long and beneficent rule of another Victoria cheerfully submitted to by the people of Great Britain.

In the nomination of Frederick Douglass for the office of Vice President, the Equal Rights Party proposes to set the seal of the nation on the issues of the war of the rebellion; to exhibit to the world that our people are a unit in the defense of the rights of all mankind; and to reset the Government on the right track, which has heretofore been traversing the tortuous windings of the slavery compromises of the first Constitution.

Read the rest here.

The Equal Rights Party.

The following information from Wikipedia:

Victoria Claflin Woodhull (September 23, 1838June 9, 1927) was an American Suffragist who was publicized in Gilded Age newspapers as a leader of the American Woman's Suffrage Movement in the 19th century. She became a colorful and notorious symbol for women's rights, free love, and labor reforms. The authorship of her speeches and articles is disputed. Some contend that many of her speeches on these subjects were not written by Woodhull herself, but her role as a representative of these movements was nonetheless powerful and controversial.

She is probably most famous for her declaration to run for the United States Presidency in 1872.

GOP Convention of 1872 in Philadelphia

You would expect to hear harmony at the glorious Academy of Music in Philadelphia, the site of the 1872 convention.

Ulysses S. Grant

Indeed, it was so. Only the sweet sound of party harmony wafted from the grand concert hall when the GOP gathered there on June 5, 1872, to nominate President Ulysses S. Grant for a second term.

Of course, there were plenty of Republicans who could no longer stomach the stench of corruption, nepotism and ineptitude that polluted the Grant Administration. But these naysayers did not come to Philadelphia.

Horace Greeley

Those determined to dump Grant created a party organization called the Liberal Republicans. They gathered in Cincinnati in May, and after much dissension and six ballots chose New York Tribune publisher Horace "Go West Young Man" Greeley — a sure loser — as its presidential candidate. Staunch Republicans would refer to the rebel group as "The Cincinnati Sore Heads."


Later the Democrats met in Baltimore determined to elect anyone but Grant. In one of the strangest presidential conventions ever, the Democrats endorsed Greeley and the Liberal Republican platform during a convention that lasted only six hours.


The continuation is here.


BTW, nice neck beard there Horace. I got to get me one of them.....

College Campus or Reeducation Camp?


Indoctrinate U.

Abraham Miller's review of this important documentary film.
Evan Maloney's "Indoctrination U" is the film college parents will need to avoid at all costs. Not that Maloney's characterization of the campus as an Orwellian reeducation camp is inaccurate. Nor are the praises for Maloney as a documentary filmmaker exaggerated. Quite to the contrary, Maloney might well be, as critics claim, America's best, young, documentary filmmaker, and "Indoctrination U" just might be the most important documentary of the year.
But, after shelling out what can only be characterized as an obscene amount of money to send a child to college, can parents really come to grips with the reality of what their money is buying?
For nearly four decades, I was a college professor, an identity I whisper about behind closed doors. Today, as a parent of one college student and two about to be sent to reeducation camp, I'd like nothing more than to go through some reprogramming myself so that I can avoid the dissonance wrought by too much information.

Brainwashing American Students
By Julia Duin, World Peace Herald.
In the summer of 2007, Harvard appointed an Islamic history professor to head its Prince Alwaleed bin Talal Islamic Studies Program. Harvard is hiring the first of four endowed chairs in the program and is using some of the $20 million donated by a Saudi prince.
Georgetown University received a similar donation—funneling $20 million toward its Center for Muslim Christian Understanding, after its benefactor.
The center, part of the Edmund A. Walsh School of Foreign Service, trains many of America’s diplomats.
Winfield Meyers, director of Campus Watch said: “The prince new very well Georgetown’s in a milieu filled with lobbyists and opinion makers; thus any program of his will exert more influence there than at a university not in a power center like Washington.”
According to one Saudi press organization, the grants are meant to promote understanding and change America’s perceptions of Islam in the most fertile place, the university campus. The practice started around 1976, when the Saudi government established a King Faisal Chair in Islamic Studies for $1 million at the University of Southern California. Since then, grants for endowed chairs in Islamic and Middle Eastern studies centers have popped up at several major universities.
In 1998, the Sultan bin Abdulaziz al Saud Foundation gave $5 million to Berkeley’s Arab and Islamic Studies Center, whose post-docs have gone on to important tenure-track academic jobs, including Oxford, DePaul, Fordham, and Harvard universities.
In July 2000, the Harvard Divinity School accepted $2.5 million from the ruler of the United Arab Emirates to endow an academic chair in Islamic Religious Studies. However, Rachel Fish, a divinity student, began a protest, accusing the sheik of funding an anti-Semitic think tank in his capital, Abu Dhabi. Harvard officials said they would reconsider accepting the gift. In 2004, the sheik withdrew the funds.
The Israel on Campus Coalition, a group of Jewish organizations, released a study recently saying out of about 4,000 American institutions of higher learning, only nine have Israel studies centers, nine have Israel studies chairs, and 16 have visitng professors teaching about Israel.
Zuhdi Jasser, a Phoenix physician and a moderate Muslim who is chairman of the American Islamic Forum For Democracy said: “Islamists such as the radical fundamentalists seen with the Saudi Wahhabis exploit American universal tolerance to provide a vehicle for the dissemination of their propaganda free of critique. It is important to emphasize---‘free of critique’…it is the tolerance which permits that. One hopes that we correct our reponse, not by changing our tolerance, but by intensely critiquing political Islam and its incompatibility withour pluralistic democracy.”
Does this bother you? Consider the cost of tuition at a major university or college for 1 year, around $30 or 40,000 isn’t it? What is it they are teaching our kids at these so called institutions of higher learning? Do you know? Do you care?
For that much money you should know. But it isn’t just about the money.
The left has infiltrated nearly every campus in America. Many are teaching professors or are an integral part of college or university administrations and boards.
You expect your children to graduate with a degree that will set them on a path of self determination and hopefully individual success and prosperity, but it is also likely they will come away from their reeducation masters indoctrinated with a philosophy and ideology that is appalling and quite chilling.
Find out what your children are learning, afterall it is likely your hard earned money that is paying for it.
As a side note and just as important I reference “The List of 45” taken from the book “The Naked Communist", written by W. Cleon Skousen. You can find the list clearly detailed here, thanks to my good friend Snooper at A Newt One.
Pay particular attention to items number 16 through 19, and 40 to 42. Chilling isn’t it.
To gain an even better in depth understanding you may want to consider reading the book Naked Communist. If you are unable to find this book at your local library or book store, which is likely, it is still available for purchase online at Amazon.com or Alibris.com .

Liberal Fascism



The facts your liberal friends need to hear
By Jonah Goldberg

Liberals, perhaps more than anyone, believe that we should be vigilant against the threat of fascism. Now, they also believe that fascism can only come from the Right--I think they're wrong. But, what liberals - and everyone else - very much need to understand is that whatever direction fascism comes from, it's popular. Fascism succeeds in democratic countries because it convinces people that it's the wave of the future, it's progressive, it's young, it's vital, it's exciting. Fascists promise to fix what's broken in our democracy, to heal our wounds, to deliver us to promised lands. So if you think fascism comes from the Right, fine. But at least keep in mind that it won't sell itself as dull, or uptight, or old-fashioned.

Let me take a moment to give you a concrete sense of what I mean.

Fascism appealed to youth activists. Indeed, the Nazis and Fascists were in major respects youth movements. In 1931, 60 percent of all German undergraduates supported the Nazi Student Organization. "Their goal," the historian John Toland wrote of the young idealists who fed the Nazi rise to power, "was to establish a youth culture for fighting the bourgeois trinity of school, home and church."

Meanwhile, middle and lower class Germans were attracted to the economic and cultural populism of Nazism. The Nazi party began as the German Worker's Party. The Nazi's economic rhetoric was eerily similar to John Edwards "Two Americas" talk. The Nazis promised to clamp down on Big Business - particularly department stores, the Wal-Marts of their day - and end the class struggle. Theodore Abel, an impressively clever American sociologist, gives us insight into why working class Germans were attracted to Nazism. In 1934, Abel took out an ad in the Nazi Party journal asking "old fighters" to submit essays explaining why they had joined. He restricted his request to "old fighters" because so many opportunists had joined the party after Hitler's rise. The essays were combined in the fascinating book "Why Hitler Came Into Power". One essayist, a coal miner, explained, "Though I was interested in the betterment of the workingman's plight, I rejected [Marxism] unconditionally. I often asked myself why socialism had to be tied up with internationalism-why it could not work as well or better in conjunction with nationalism." A railroad worker concurred, "I shuddered at the thought of Germany in the grip of Bolshevism. The slogan 'Workers of the World Unite!' made no sense to me. At the same time, however, National Socialism, with its promise of a community . . . barring all class struggle, attracted me profoundly." A third worker wrote that he embraced the Nazis because of their "uncompromising will to stamp out the class struggle, snobberies of caste and party hatreds. The movement bore the true message of socialism to the German workingman."

Nazism's appeal to the professional classes was just as strong. Raymond Dominick, a historian specializing in the history of German environmentalism, found that by 1939, 59 percent of conservationist leaders had joined the Nazi party, while only 10 percent of adult males had. Forty five percent of medical doctors had joined and roughly one quarter of teachers and lawyers had. The two groups of professionals with the highest rates of participation in the Nazi Party? Veterinarians were first and foresters were a close second. Dominick found a "unique nexus between National Socialism and nature conservation."

The Nazis and Italian Fascists won over big business, cultural elites, the youth and the lower-classes because they portrayed themselves as heroically on the side of progress, protecting the environment and the poor. Fascists preached unity, togetherness and an end to division.

Liberals need to ask themselves where do they hear this rhetoric the most?

I'm not saying that merely being for the environment, the poor or national unity makes you a fascist. But what I am saying is that if you're concerned about spotting fascism on the horizon you can't just look at people you don't like. That's like only looking for your lost car keys where the light is good. Huey Long reportedly said that if Fascism comes to America it will be called "anti-Fascism." Liberals can still make their arguments that fascism comes from the right. But until they understand that wherever fascism may come from, it never arrives save in a form that the best and the brightest are willing to accept with open arms.

And if liberals don't know their history, they won't be equipped to spot it when it comes knocking.

Jonah Goldberg is the author of the New York Times bestseller Liberal Fascism

Help made available to "liberals".

My opinion;

While I disagree with the notion that liberals are actually friends, it is my opinion that true liberals are rare these days. In fact most liberals have slid so far left they are indistinguishable from leftist ideology.

Of course any leftist will laugh and say it is the right that are to blame for all the problems in the world, never once taking responsibility for their own actions…or should I say inactions. You know…if it feels good do it?…It’s what they do to maintain their fantasy, which resembles Alice in Wonderland on steroids.

The arrogance and intellectual dishonesty from the left is laughable and so easy to see through while they claim to want dialogue and debate. HA!

Personally I can think of vastly superior ways in which to waste my time.

Make no mistake, they are the enemy within. The sooner we realize that the sooner we can put an end to the leftist diatribe and ideology taking over this country, and the sooner America can get back to being the greatest nation on earth.

In his oft-repeated speech in the Roman Senate, Cicero, in 42 B.C. spoke these words:

"A nation can survive its fools and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banners openly. But the traitor moves among those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself.


For the traitor appears not a traitor - he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and garments, and he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation - he works secretly and alone in the night to undermine the pillars of a city - he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resists. A murderer is less to be feared."
"Once to every man and nation,
comes the moment to decide,

In strife of truth with falsehood
for the good or evil side.

Then the brave man chooses,
while the coward stands aside.

Til the multitudes make virtue
of faith they had denied.

Though the cause of evil prosper,
yet 'tis truth alone is strong.

Yet that scaffold sways the future
and behind the dim unknown

Standeth God within the shadow,

keeping watch above His own."

God and Allah, Are They The Same? Part II

This is the continuation of the discussion “God and Allah, Are They The Same?”
If you spent a little time at the previously listed web sites in Part 1 then this will be much easier to understand.

ALLAH, the Moon God
Review of The Moon God Allah in the Archaeology of the Middle East.
www.biblebelievers.org.au/moongod.htm - 16k - Cached - Similar pages - Note this

3:54 "And (then unbelievers) plotted and planned [makaroo] and Allah too planned [makara] and the best [khayr] of planners [makireen] is Allah"

#393 The Arabic Makara has both a bad and a good meaning, that of making an intricate plan to carry out some secret purpose. The enemies of Allah are constantly doing that. But Allah-in whose hands is all good-has His plans also, against which the evil ones will have no chance whatever.

The Arabic word makara means to DECEIVE, PLAN, PLOT, SCHEME.

*** The Quran depicts Allah as a SLY, DECEIVING & CUNNING SCHEMER who plans and plots against his own CREATION that he had already PREDESTINED to end up either in Paradise or in Hell.

Such human attributes cannot possibly fit any supreme being, if Allah is the same as the God of Israel.

In fact such attributes are pure BLASPHEMY

***The Arabic Bible in Genesis 3:1 uses the same word for Satan.
However, the Vand Dyck and Jerusalem Bibles use the root word hayala, which means to DECEIVE or to LIE.

This word "schemer" (makir) is a very strong word which Wehr and Abdel-Nour define as "sly, cunning, wily, deceiver".

The Arabic-Arabic unjid defines it with "khuda`a" which means exactly the same thing
(Bill Campbell in his book The Qur'an and the Bible in the Light of History and Science p.217-218).

Another reference to the DECEIT of Allah:
7:99 Did they then fell secure against the plan [makr] of Allah? But no one can feel secure from the plan [makr] of Allah except those (doomed) to ruin!

The phrase of Allah "being the best deceiver". "khayr-ol- makireen" is also used of Allah in Suras 8:30; 10:21.

8: 30 Remember how the unbelievers plotted [yamkuroo] against thee to keep thee in bonds or slay thee or get thee out (of thy home). They plot and plan [yamkuroona] and Allah too plans [yamkuroo] but the best of planners [ khayr- ol-makireen] is Allah.

10:21 When We make mankind taste of some mercy after adversity hath touched them Behold! they take to plotting [makaroo] against our Signs! Say: "Swifter to plan [asra'oo makiran] is Allah!" Verily Our messengers record all the plots that ye make [tamkuroona] !

Allah is the most DECEITFUL in Sura 3:54 and in Sura 30:8

In sura 10:21 Allah is referred to be the fastest in DECEIT/ PLOTTING/ SCHEMING.

The root with its nine forms is used in the Quran 43 times.

English translations of the Quran try to conceal the true meaning of "deceiver"

Yusuf Ali 3:54"And (the unbelievers) Plotted and planned, And Allah too planned, And the best [khayr] of planners Is Allah."

*** Yusuf Ali, in his version of the Quran, says that Makara can be "good or bad", positive or negative, (note 393), but all the Arabic dictionaries do not show the 'good' side***

Arberry Sura 3: between 45 and 50" And they devised, and God [Allah] devised, and God [Allah] is the best [khayr] of devisers"

Malik 3:54 "The (unbelievers among the children of Israel) plotted (against Isa) and Allah also devised a plan (to raise him up), and Allah is the best [khayr] in planning."

10:21 "When we bestow mercy upon the people, after adversity had afflicted them, they immediately scheme against our revelations! Say, "GOD's [Allah's] scheming is far more effective. For our messengers are recording everything you scheme." (http://www.submission.org/suras/sura10.html)

Pickthall 3:54 "And they (the disbelievers) schemed, and Allah schemed (against them); and Allah is the best [khayr] of schemers."

Maulawi Sher Ali, an Ahmaddiyya 3:54 "And they planned, and Allah also planned; and Allah is the Best of planners."

In Farsi, the word, "Makr" and "Makar" is from the Arabic, and it is invariably negative.

Interpretation of Sura 3:54-

The person who is a Makir (Same form as the word Kafir), speaking ofthe attribute of a person, is one who would outwit someone else to cause them harm.

It speaks of one who would reveal the opposite of what he plans to do. The reality is that he is scheming evil for that person. Hence there is the sense of planning and scheming but mostly it means to trick, outwit and deceive for the purpose of overpowering and conquering the other.

A Makir is one who devises a secret scheme against someone else. Synonyms would be cheating, defrauding, double-crossing, deceiving, tricking, in all cases Makara has the sense of defeating the one you have tricked.

Although Quranic verses are rarely understood in the context of verses that surround them, the best explanation of this verse is that some Jews were trying to deceive Jesus into believing that they have accepted his message while in reality were plotting to have him excuted.

Unfortunately for them, Allah knew of their scheme because they cannot outwit Allah, and he in turn schemed to deceive them by having a Jesus look-alike get executed instead.

So the literal translation that best represents the intention of the verse is:

Sura 3:54 "... and (they) Deceived and Allah Deceived and Allah is the deceivest of deceivers "

In Arabic: "Wa makaru wa makara Allah wa Allah khayru^l Makireen."

The context of the story is very important since Sura 3 is regarded to be Muhammad's understanding of Christian beliefs.

Al Tabari says here, that the deceit of Allah applies to the time when the Jews wanted to kill Isa the son of Miriam [Mary]. In order not to have Jesus killed, someone else had the face of Isa put on him so he was killed instead of Isa the son of Miriam [Mary]. This is how Allah deceived the Jews.

*** If Jesus did not DIE on the CROSS, then obviuosly there could have been no RESURRECTION.

Without Death & Resurrection, there is no purpose for Christianity. Hence with one single sentence, the whole of Christianity is OBLITERATED.

Since according to the Quran, its verses were 'revealed' by the angel Gabriel, the same who predicted the miraculous birth of Jesus as the REDEEMER of humanity, then Allah DECEIVED the Christians TWICE:

Once for the reason of Jesus's birth and then for his non death.

From all of the above, the true nature of Allah is revealed ***

Let Us "Stir The Pot"


The following is rewritten and taken from the Levitt Letter which I subscribe to. I thought it was pertinent to what many of us perhaps know already but were afraid to admit publicly. This may be somewhat controversial, even contentious, but please read it carefully.

How many times will you, as a Christian, "turn the other cheek", or avoid unpleasantness(is that a word?)?

Will you pick the tough road filled with obstacles and enemies, or will you choose the path of least resistance and no enemies?


DeSeifering Our World
By Dr. Jefferey Seif. Zola Levitt Ministries.

Should Christians make praying for their enemies an absolute priority? I say absolutely “Not”! By contrast I suggest that Christians making enemies should be a priority and then, once made, we should be praying for them. Sound strange? Listen up.

While Christians are fond of quoting Jesus praying “forgive them; they know not what they do” (Luke 23:34), we do well to note that, though they didn’t know what they were doing, Jesus certainly did. At one level, they were responding to Jesus’ having previously and provocatively taken a whip to individuals in the Jewish Temple (see John 2:13-22). Jewish authorities were, in like manner, responding to having been the object of Jesus’ prophetic scorn in Matthew 23:1-35, in the process of which they were referred to as “ hypocrites” (v.14; cf.vv. 23, 27) “blind guides” (v. 16; cf. vv. 24, 26), “fools” and “blind” (v. 17; cf.v. 24); and, as if all this wasn’t bad enough, Jesus likewise went on record calling them “serpents” and then “broods of vipers” in v. 33.
Though Jesus prayed for His enemies, He also made His enemies on the heels of His provocations.

Paul, for his part, did much the same.

A riot ensued in the wake of Paul’s early ministry in Damascus, and he was spirited away in a basket to avoid getting killed (Acts 9:23-25). He narrowly escaped Thessalonica, when riots followed there (Acts 17:1-10). Luke informs that Paul generated so much discontent in Jerusalem that the authorities “called for two centurions…saying ‘Prepare two hundred soldiers, seventy horsemen and two hundred spearmen… and provide mounts to set Paul on, and bring him to Felix the governor’” (Acts 23:23-24).

Add Paul's own autobiography to this mess, and we learn that he was slashed with whips many times, and on more than one occasion, beaten with rods, stoned with boulders, and imprisoned frequently (II Corinthians 11:23-33). This guy was a virtual riot-maker! Though Paul graciously prayed for his enemies, let’s remember that he made them too. Had he done nothing with his life---as seems the case with many Christians today---the world would have ignored him, much as it ignores much of the boring and irrelevant in the church today.

It’s for this and other reasons that I say praying for our enemies should not be our priority, as much as making them should be, by taking stands.

Jesus, Paul, and the early brethren did not invoke the ire of the authorities by being really, really nice guys---the image of today’s Christians. No. They “stirred it up” by boldly contending for principles; and they, as we know, got into trouble by virtue of their so doing.

Seems to me that the issue of “praying for our enemies” is a moot and irrelevant point for many Christians today.

Many simply don’t have any enemies to pray for because, contrary to the teachings and examples of Jesus and Paul, they are not doing anything to “ruffle any feathers” in the world.
I say, “Let’s take stands, make enemies and then---of course---pray for them.”

You Want to Vote for Obama?

The following article is unedited and in the authors own words. Essential reading in my opinion.

Be careful of who and what you vote for, America’s future is at stake.

Three absolutely critical articles can be found at ANewtOne discussing this in detail, Bill Keller on Obama, More Obamanation, and Obamanation. Read them!!


We ask for your immediate attention, and viral dissemination of this news.

America is being fooled by Borak Hussein Obama!!
By ibn Misr

"YES, MUSLIMS ARE MEMBERS IN OUR CHURCH." "WE HAVE MANY MEMBERS IN OUR CHURCH WHO ARE MUSLIMS."

I am Usama K. Dakdok, President of The Straight Way of Grace Ministry. I am invited by churches all over America to speak about ISLAM and its threat to America and the West.I have had concerns about Senator Obama,s honesty regarding his so called Christian faith.I called The United Church of Christ in Chicago ILLINOIS, where Senator Obama is a member.

If Senator Obama was indeed a Christian, he would be regarded as an "Apostate" which according to Islamic Law, would mean he would be subject to a death warrant imposed upon anyone who leaves Islam, according to Prophet Mohammed himself. Many of such murders take place around this world to Muslims who have left Islam. Putting Islamic law aside, he would still be condemned by Islam. However, in Senator Obamas instance, Muslims in America are joyously happy to think that Obama would be a Muslim President in the white House. Obama is deceiving America. Muslims would not be endorsing a Muslim who left Islam and became a Christian.

It is important to note that I had four witnesses to this telephone conversation with his church. The dates, time and length of the entire conversation can be verified by phone records. The following is the conversation I had with the church, regarding his membership there.

"My name is Usama, and I am from Egypt." "I am interested in joining the church." "I need to ask some questions please." The operator directed me to the membership office. I proceeded to ask questions that only a Muslim would ask. "What is the difference between Baptist and your church?" She responded, " WE believe exactly what Baptists believe." My second question was, "How big is your church and what kind of church is it?" She responded, "We are a Black African American Church and we have 6000 members. I asked, "Do I have to attend Sunday School classes or other meetings to be a member?" She answered "No." I asked, "Do I have to be baptized to join the church?" She again answered, "No." I asked, "Do I have to pay a membership Fee to join?" Her answer was No. I then asked her what I needed to do to join. She told me that I needed to attend two Sunday School classes in a row and then I would walk the aisle. I replied, "That sounds easy." "One last question please."

"IF I AM MUSLIM AND I BELIEVE IN PROPHET MOHAMMED, PEACE BE UPON HIM AND I ALSO BELIEVE IN JESUS, BE UPON HIM, DO I HAVE TO GIVE UP MY ISLAMIC FAITH TO BE A MEMBER IN YOUR CHURCH?" SHE ANSWERED, "NO." "WE HAVE MANY MUSLIM MEMBERS IN OUR CHURCH." It is important to note that Muslims and Christians would not attend the same church.""I asked her, "is that how Senator Borak Hussein Obama became a member?" There was silence.

I went on and stated that his father and step father were Muslim, his grandfathers and grandmothers are Muslim, his uncles and aunts, nephews and nieces and cousins are Muslim and everyone in his family in Kenya are Muslims. She replied to me, "I am sorry, I cannot answer these questions for you." I of course sensed she was uncomfortable. I ended the conversation by saying to her, "YOUR CHURCH HAS DONE GREAT HARM TO THIS COUNTRY BY COVERING A WOLF IN SHEEPS CLOTHING AND THAT WOLF IS SENATOR BORAK HUSSEIN OBAMA." end of phone call......

This is fraud to the people of the United States of America.

Sincerely, Usama Dakdok

P.S. I am willing to expose this to the media in all outlets.

God Bless America

Has The World Abandoned Israel?

The following series of articles may help answer the question posed in the title of this post.

********************
Israel’s Test
By Jamie Glazov

FrontPageMagazine.com Friday, March 02, 2007















What are the dire threats Israel now faces? Will it be able to equip itself to face them? To explore these questions with us today, Frontpage Symposium has assembled a distinguished panel.

The guests were; Rael Isaac, David Hornik, Caroline Glick, David Keyes and Kenneth Levin.

Read the rest here.

********************

The entire body of the Jewish people today -- in Israel, in Europe, in America, in Australia and New Zealand, and throughout the world -- is in grave danger. Our very existence as a people and as a faith is in jeopardy. The threat to our survival has two components to it: the external siege being waged against Israel and the Jewish people throughout the world by the international jihadist movement, its sympathizers and appeasers; and the internal siege that we Jews, both in Israel and in the Diaspora, including the United States, are waging against ourselves.

We will look first at the external siege -- war that is being waged against us. It has its military, diplomatic, and ideological-propaganda aspects.

The rest of the article here.

The Terrorist Cancer and the Cure for the Middle East
Daniel Greenfield

How do you fight cancer in an infected patient? Conventional wisdom would say that you do it by attacking the cancer cells in the body. When it comes to terrorism however, the West's prescription for fighting terrorism is to attack the healthy cells in the body instead.

If international terrorism is a cancer, the Middle East is practically late stage terminal. Yet the one place in the Middle East that is not producing cancer cells, the Jewish population of Israel, is the one that all the professional diplomats and surgeons busy playing surgeon are so eager to cut out.

The conventional wisdom among diplomats and pundits has it that the one non-Arab and non-Muslim state in the Middle East is the cause of all the Arab and Islamic terrorism. Which is a little like a doctor diagnosing the healthy parts of the body as cancerous and arguing that the cancer would go away if we simply got rid of the last healthy organ in the body.

An intelligent approach to the Middle East would have been to empower the Jewish, Christian, Sufi and Zoroastrian populations of the Middle East, to raise up the minority Assyrian, Kurdish, Armenian, Azeri and Coptic populations consistently persecuted by the Arab, Persian and Muslim majorities who sponsor and conduct terrorism against the West. Instead the United States has consistently disregarded their rights and focused instead on appeasing the region's Arab, Persian Nationalist and Islamic tyrannies.

And One To Make You Cry...

This one came from a regular contributor here--Thanks Dean!



Daddy's Poem

Her hair was in a pony tail,
Her favorite dress tied with a bow.
Today was Daddy's Day at school,
And she couldn't wait to go.

But her mommy tried to tell her,
She should probably stay home.
Why the kids might not understand,
If she went to school alone.

But she was not afraid;
She knew just what to say.
What to tell her classmates
Of why he wasn't there today.

But still her mother worried,
For her to face this day alone.
And that was why once again,
She tried to keep her daughter home.

But the little girl went to school
Eager to tell them all.
About a dad she never sees
A dad who never calls.

There were daddies along the wall in back,
For everyone to meet.
Children squirming impatiently,
Anxious in their seats

One by one the teacher called
A student from the class.
To introduce their daddy,
As seconds slowly passed.

At last the teacher called her name,
Every child turned to stare.
Each of them was searching,
For a man who wasn't there.

"Where's her daddy at?"
She heard a boy call out
"She probably doesn't have one,"
Another student dared to shout.

And from somewhere near the back,
She heard a daddy say,
"Looks like another deadbeat dad,
Too busy to waste his day."

The words did not offend her,
As she smiled up at her Mom.
And looked back at her teacher,
Who told her to go on

And with hands behind her back,
Slowly she began to speak.
And out of the mouth of a child,
Came words incredibly unique.

"My Daddy couldn't be here,
Because he lives so far away.
But I know he wishes he could be,
Since this is such a special day.

And though you cannot meet him,
I wanted you to know.
All about my daddy,
And how much he loves me so

He loved to tell me stories
He taught me to ride my bike.
He surprised me with pink roses,
And taught me to fly a kite.

We used to share fudge sundaes,
And ice cream in a cone.
And though you cannot see him.
I'm not standing here alone.

"'Cause my daddy's always with me,
Even though we are apart
I know because he told me,
He'll forever be in my heart"

With that, her little hand reached up,
And lay across her chest.
Feeling her own heartbeat,


And from somewhere here in the crowd of dads,
Her mother stood in tears.
Proudly watching her daughter,
Who was wise beyond her years.

For she stood up for the love
Of a man not in her life.
Doing what was best for her,
Doing what was right.

And when she dropped her hand back down,
Staring straight into the crowd.
She finished with a voice so soft,
But its message clear and loud.

"I love my daddy very much,
He's my shining star.
And if he could, he'd be here,
But heaven's just too far.

You see he is a Marine
And died just this past year
When a roadside bomb hit his convoy
And taught Americans to fear.

But sometimes when I close my eyes,
It 's like he never went away."
And then she closed her eyes,
And saw him there that day.

And to her mothers amazement,
She witnessed with surprise.
A room full of daddies and children,
All starting to close their eyes.

Who knows what they saw before them,
Who knows what they felt inside.
Perhaps for merely a second,
They saw him at her side.

"I know you're with me Daddy,"
To the silence she called out.
And what happened next made believers,
Of those once filled with doubt.

Not one in that room could explain it,
For each of their eyes had been closed.
But there on the desk beside her,
Was a fragrant long-stemmed pink rose.

And a child was blessed, if only for a moment,
By the love of her shining star.
And given the gift of believing,
That heaven is never too far.

Time To Set The Record Straight

Time to Set The Record Straight

The notion that the Falastinians, aka; “Palestinians” are a people is a lie that has lived on through the ages perpetuated by world leaders, the so called main stream media, and our own government.

To Muslims and Arabs across the globe:

“Reject hate, embrace love. Bring out the best in Islam by showing your compassion, gratitude and forgiveness. Make the holy land truly holy by giving Israel and the Jewish people the respect they deserve in their tiny little country. This is not a crisis over land. It is a crisis of the soul; a crisis in our faith, judgement and self confidence. Israel should not be regarded as an enemy, but as a blessing to our neighborhood. We need not fear peace, but embrace it.”
A statement by Arabs For Israel.

Most of us would agree that is a powerful statement which contradicts many teachings in the Muslim world. Globally Muslims and non-Muslims alike condemn the Jews.

There have been many articles, essays, and documents calling for and supporting the complete annihilation of the tiny country of Israel, and wiping the Jews from the face of the earth.
Anti-Semitism has been with us for a very long time, indeed it almost seems in vogue or fashionable these days to “blame” the Jews for all the troubles in the Middle East.

Israel is tiny by comparison to her neighbors, literally surrounded by 22 Arab nations with a land mass hundreds of times the size of Israel.
For statistics and maps go here.


Let’s start at the beginning.

Where is “Palestine” and who are the “Palestinians”?

The recent land for peace endeavor in Annapolis, Maryland is a delusional legacy project doomed to fail as all other peace initiatives have over the past several decades.
In recent weeks the disturbing news that governments and international groups have pledged $7.4 billion dollars over the next three years to the “Palestinians”.

Since when does “throwing” money at terrorists bring about peace? Especially since their stated purpose is to “wipe Israel off the face of the earth”. The question begs an answer.

The Madrid Summit of 1991was another pathetic attempt to bring about peace in the Middle East.

This proposed peace deal brought about the destruction of the Israeli economy and insured the ever increasing terrorist acts of violence that have continued to this day.
Nearly everyday for the past several years Israel has received rocket attacks and other acts of violence. A peaceful gesture by the falsely named “Palestinians”?
The Madrid Summit failed to achieve the peace intended, so will the Annapolis conference and giving money to aid and abet terrorists.

What these people fail to recognize is basic to understanding a complicated problem. Perhaps the following will help dispel some of the myths of “Palestine” and a so called “Palestinian” people.

Many myths have been handed down through the ages about these people.
The word “myths’ is perhaps too kind in my opinion. In reality they are nothing more or less than lies.

Tell the lies often enough and long enough and the majority will begin to believe them.

The fact is there is no such land as “Palestine”, neither is there a race of people called “Palestinians”.

"There is no such thing as a Palestinian people... It is not as if we came and threw them out and took their country. They didn't exist."
--Golda Meir, statement to The Sunday Times,
15 June, 1969 and quoted by Sarah
Honig, 25 November 1995.

"From the end of the Jewish state in antiquity to the beginning of British rule, the area now designated by the name Palestine was not a country and had no frontiers, only administrative boundaries . . . ."
-- Professor Bernard Lewis Princeton University Quote taken from Commentary Magazine, January 1975.

"Palestine has never existed . . . as an autonomous entity. There is no language known as Palestinian. There is no distinct Palestinian culture. There has never been a land known as Palestine governed by Palestinians. Palestinians are Arabs, indistinguishable from Jordanians (another recent invention), Syrians, Lebanese, Iraqis, etc.

"Keep in mind that the Arabs control 99.9 percent of the Middle East lands. Israel represents one-tenth of one percent of the land mass. But that's too much for the Arabs. They want it all. And that is ultimately what the fighting in Israel is about today . . . No matter how many land concessions the Israelis make, it will never be enough."
--Joseph Farah, Arab-American journalist, "Myths of the Middle East"
More here from Joseph Farah.

There is no recorded history of “Palestine”. It has never been a state or a nation.
The word itself is derived from “Peleshet” and frequently appears in the Bible.

During the thirteenth century BC, a people commonly referred to as the “Sea Peoples” migrated from the Aegean Sea and Greek Islands settling in the southern coastal land of Canaan.
Five independent city-states, including Gaza, were established and came to be known as “Philistia”. The Romans and Greeks of the time called it “Palestina”.

Philistines are not Arabs, certainly not Semites and had no connection ethnic, linguistic or historical to Arabia or Arabs. The Arab pronunciation of “Palestina”, a Greco-Roman name, is “Falastin”.

For more detail on this please go here and here.

Quote from Charles Krauthammer - The Weekly Standard, May 11, 1998;
“Israel is the very embodiment of Jewish continuity; It is the only nation on earth that inhabits the same land, bears the same name, speaks the same language, and worships the same God that it did 3,000 years ago. You dig the soil and you find pottery from Davidic times, coins from Bar Kokhba, and 2,000 year-old scrolls written in a script remarkably like the one that today advertises ice cream at the corner candy store.”

Read the rest of the story here.

A more detailed look into the “myths” can be found here.

“If American Middle East policy could be represented as an archeological dig, it would look something like this: the Zinni Mission would be resting atop the ruins of the Tenet Work Plan, which would be crushing the remains of the Mitchell Commission Report, which would be settled on remnants of the pillaged Sharm al Sheikh agreement, all of which would be weighing down the collapsed foundations of the shattered Oslo Accords.”
--Avi Davis, World Net Daily.

"Today, most of the Arab/Islamic world focuses its genocidal hatred on the Jewish State exactly as Europe once focused this same hatred on the individual Jew. There is now no greater Jewish responsibility than to prevent a second Holocaust... and it is nothing short of a Holocaust that the Arab/Islamic world now wishes and plans for Israel." --Louis Rene Beres, 9/9/04 Lecture to the Dawn R. Schuman Institute. No links available.

BIG LIES:
Demolishing The Myths of the Propaganda War Against Israel
by David Meir-Levi
The .pdf can be found here.

THE IMPORTANCE OF THIS TEXT by David Horowitz

The War in the Middle East is nearly sixty years old. Most people alive today are unfamiliar with its history and origins and lack knowledge of its facts. This state of ignorance provides a fertile ground for the unscrupulous to create myths that will justify their destructive agendas. The political propaganda machine has created many such myths to fuel their war against the Jewish state.

Israel is the only democracy in the Middle East that elects its lead­ers in free elections and guarantees rights to its citizens, and honors those rights. Yet Israel is the target of those who claim to be fighting for “human rights.” There are about a million and a half Arabs living as citizens in Israel who elect representatives to Israel’s parliament and who have more rights than the Arab citizens of any Arab state. Yet Israel is the target of those who claim to be fighting for “social justice.” Israel’s very creation is referred to by its Arab enemies as "the Nakba", or the “catastrophe,” the clear implication of which is that Israel should not exist. Yet Israel is the target of those who claim to support self-determination and oppose genocide. Israel was the victim – at its very birth -- of an unprovoked aggression by five Arab mon­archies and dictatorships. It has been the target of an Arab war that has continued uninterruptedly for nearly sixty years because the Arab states have refused to make peace. Yet Israel is the target of those who say they want “peace.” Israel is the victim of terrorist attacks – sui­cide bombings – which along with the Jews they mark for extinction, kill Palestinian women and children as well.

Yet Israel is the target of those who claim to speak for humanity and a future that is “free.”
How is this possible? How can evil be dressed in the garments of justice? How can a genocidal war to destroy a democratic people be justified as a struggle for “national liberation?”
They can through the creation of political myths that rationalize aggression and justify war against civilian populations.

In conclusion: Between The Lines, by Joseph Farah
Posted: September 19, 20021:00 a.m. Eastern

The worlds collective amnesia.

Yasser Arafat may have lost some of his personal political clout of late, but the political movement he began – demanding justice for Palestinian Arabs expelled from their homes in 1948 – remains as strong as ever.

There's just one problem. There's not the slightest historical evidence to suggest Arabs were expelled in significant numbers – certainly not by Jews.

I know this statement is going to be met with gasps, guffaws and gnashing of teeth. Nevertheless, let me defend it, not with my own words, not with the words of Jews and Israelis, but with the words of Arabs closer to the time of the events.

"The fact that there are these refugees is the direct consequence of the act of the Arab states in opposing partition and the Jewish state. The Arab states agree upon this policy unanimously and they must share in the solution of the problem."– Emile Ghoury, secretary of the Palestinian Arab Higher Committee, in an interview with the Beirut Telegraph Sept. 6, 1948.

"The Arab state which had encouraged the Palestine Arabs to leave their homes temporarily in order to be out of the way of the Arab invasion armies, have failed to keep their promise to help these refugees."– The Jordanian daily newspaper Falastin, Feb. 19, 1949.

"Who brought the Palestinians to Lebanon as refugees, suffering now from the malign attitude of newspapers and communal leaders, who have neither honor nor conscience? Who brought them over in dire straits and penniless, after they lost their honor? The Arab states, and Lebanon amongst them, did it."– The Beirut Muslim weekly Kul-Shay, Aug. 19, 1951.

"The 15th May, 1948, arrived ... On that day the mufti of Jerusalem appealed to the Arabs of Palestine to leave the country, because the Arab armies were about to enter and fight in their stead."– The Cairo daily Akhbar el Yom, Oct. 12, 1963.

"For the flight and fall of the other villages it is our leaders who are responsible because of their dissemination of rumors exaggerating Jewish crimes and describing them as atrocities in order to inflame the Arabs ... By spreading rumors of Jewish atrocities, killings of women and children etc., they instilled fear and terror in the hearts of the Arabs in Palestine, until they fled leaving their homes and properties to the enemy."– The Jordanian daily newspaper Al Urdun, April 9, 1953

The intent of this article is not to prove my opinion. It is posted here to promote thinking for yourself and to provide a historical look at the serious problems we face when attempting to reveal the truth about this subject.

As I stated earlier tell a lie often enough and long enough and soon it becomes the “new” truth.

The subject is complicated to say the least and this one article cannot possibly hope to dispel the myths and the lies we have come to accept as fact. It is a start.
All I ask of you the reader is digest this with an open mind and follow the links. There are more to follow.

Some of the material cited above is found in the book From Time Immemorial by Joan Peters.

Other sources include Professor Bernard Lewis, Princeton University and his book “The Middle East, A Brief History of the Last 2000 Years”.

They Walk Among Us!-Comedy From Dean


IDIOT SIGHTING:
We had to have the garage door repaired. The Sears repairman told us that one of our problems was we did not have a "large" enough motor on the opener. I thought for a minute, and said we had the largest one Sears made at the time, a 1/2 horsepower. He shook his head and said, "Lady, you need a 1/4 horsepower." I responded 1/2 was larger than 1/4. He said, "NO, it's not." Four is larger than two.."

We haven't used Sears Repair since.

IDIOT SIGHTING
My daughter and I went through the McDonald's take-out window and I gave the clerk a $5 bill. Our total was $4.25, so I also handed her a quarter. She said, "you gave me too much money." I said, "Yes I know, but this way you can just give me a dollar bill back." She sighed and went to get the manager who asked me to repeat my request. I did so, and he handed me back the quarter, and said "We're sorry but they could not do that kind of thing." The clerk then proceeded to give me back $1 and 75 cents in change.

Do not confuse the clerks at McD's.

IDIOT SIGHTING
I live in a semi-rural area. We recently had a new neighbor call the local township administrative office to request the removal of the DEER CROSSING sign on our road. The reason: "Too many deer are being hit by cars out here! I don't think this is a good place for them to be crossing anymore."

From Kingman, KS.

IDIOT SIGHTING IN FOOD SERVICE
My daughter went to a local Taco Bell and ordered a taco. She asked the person behind the counter for "minimal lettuce." He said he was sorry, but they only had iceburg lettuce.

I was at the airport checking in at the gate when an airport employee asked, "Has anyone put anything in your baggage without your knowledge?" To which I replied, "If it was without my knowledge, how would I know?" He smiled knowingly and nodded, "That's why we ask."

Happened in Birmingham , Ala.

IDIOT SIGHTING
The stoplight on the corner buzzes when it's safe to cross the street. I was crossing with an intellectually challenged coworker of mine. She asked if I knew what the buzzer was for. I explained that it signals blind people when the light is red. Appalled, she responded, "What on earth are blind people doing driving?!"

She was a Probation Officer in Wichita , KS

IDIOT SIGHTING
At a good-bye luncheon for an old and dear coworker. She was leaving the company due to "downsizing." Our manager commented cheerfully, "This is fun. We should do this more often." Not another word was spoken. We all just looked at each other with that deer-in-the-headlights stare.

This was a lunch at Texas Instruments.

IDIOT SIGHTING
I work with an individual who plugged her power strip back into itself and for the sake of her life, couldn't understand why her system would not turn on.

A Deputy with the Dallas County Sheriff's Office, no less.

IDIOT SIGHTING
When my husband and I arrived at an automobile dealership to pick up our car, we were told the keys had been locked in it. We went to the service department and found a mechanic working feverishly to unlock the driver’s side door. As I watched from the passenger side, I instinctively tried the door handle and discovered it was unlocked. "Hey," I announced to the technician, "its open!" His reply? "I know. I already got that side."

This was at the Ford Dealership in Canton , Mississippi

STAY ALERT!

They walk among us... and the scary part is that they VOTE and they REPRODUCE!!!

Untitled Terrorism


Northeast Intelligence Network

By Sean Osborne, Associate Director, Military Affairs

31 August 2007: There is an old saying that goes something like this: If a tree falls in the forest and no one is around to hear it did its falling make a sound? To put it another way, if there was an earthquake and no one was around to feel the effects underneath their feet did the earth really move? Well, we’re told by science that the vibration of trillions of molecules creates audible sound and without a human ear to hear those vibrations the sound did occur without a human to detect the falling of the tree. Same goes for the earthquake. Seismographs might record the events in the dimensions of magnitude and duration, but nobody heard or felt them and the danger potential was not otherwise recorded or reported. Some of you are now shrugging your shoulders and saying,”yeah, so what”?

This is what. If there were numerous precursor events and actual events of terrorism going on all over the United States of America with neither the national mainstream media nor the government you elected were acknowledging their occurrence would you know those events had occurred? No, you would probably not, unless you read this website often or had been told by your friends about it via word-of-mouth or an email with a link. Otherwise these events are untitled terrorism, they do not exist. And if you did not know about those untitled terrorist events would you care one iota that they had occurred? Negative, you would not care. If you didn’t hear that “tree” fall near you or feel the “earth move” under your feet then there is no report of an imminent threat to you or your family and you believe you and family are perfectly safe and secure where you are. Believe me; nothing could be further from the truth. Click the article title or “read more” above to continue with this important editorial report.

America, are you aware of the threat to your beloved children on their way to school or in school? How many times over the past couple of years have you heard of this potential danger and then forgotten about it over time. The danger hasn’t gone away, so why are you comfortable now? Maybe I should inform you that in the Houston, Texas area the FBI, JTTF and local law enforcement are anything but comfortable. If you’re not a resident of the Houston area you did not hear this tree fall. Over the summer months, and while your attention has been upon everything but school, at least 17 school buses have been stolen from a variety of student transportation concerns, including private companies, charter schools and businesses. These thefts occurred within a specific geographical suburb of Houston. No known threat? Oh, yes, there is a very real promissory threat from Islamic terrorists to kill several million American children; this is just one avenue to accomplish that Islamic promise. Figuratively, this falling “tree” is a threat to our children and also involves a transportation system. Did you hear it?

In Washington, D.C. problems continue on the Metro transportation system. A month ago the Northeast Intelligence Network reported on the poison spread at various stations of the various systems lines and the sudden death of birds at these locations, which also was eerily similar to what occurred on Congress Avenue in Austin, Texas back in January 2007. Not quite a month after the poison incidents the DC Metro experienced unexplained electrical power problems. Some enterprising public affairs officer blamed this two-day long failure on lightning. It is interesting to note here that one DC Metro power supplier, Virginia Dominion, did not record any electrical problems during the outages and fires on the affected segments of the system. Again, those who do not live in the DC Metro area probably never heard of these events and for you this electrical power and transportation “tree” never fell.

Then there are the various explosive events we have reported on over time and very recently. Do you recall the explosive events in Romulus, Michigan; Texas City, Texas; Spokane, Washington, and most recently the near identical incidents in Houston and Dallas, Texas? And I’ll bet you never felt the earth move under your feet unless you live near Henderson, Texas where a natural gas pipeline exploded without apparent cause and illuminated the night sky for a half-mile in every direction. This pipeline belongs to Kinder Morgan, which according to its website, is one of the largest pipeline transportation and storage companies in North America. In other words, this is part of American strategic national infrastructure. No comment from the national mainstream media, and no government commentary either.

Shhhh, be quiet America, the trees are not falling in the American forest, and the ground does not move under our feet. This September and during the school year dare not to express concern to your elected officials over the security of your children on their way to or while in their school. After all, Beslan is in Russia, not America. Fret not over your own security as you commute over rail lines, bridges and our national transportation infrastructure. A little nick of the razor in the morning is not really a problem, but ten thousand of them that you’re not aware of probably will kill you. The same is true for this country unless you demand the government do something to secure the razors, the axes felling the trees and the Improvised Explosive Devices moving the ground under our feet. It really is up to you to make a difference for your children, yourselves and the nation as a whole. Make some noise like a falling tree; make the government feel the earth move under its bureaucratic feet by stomping your own.

We have been warned numerous times and yet we remain complacent. We are at war with a barbaric enemy who cares nothing about your lives or your childrens lives. The time to act is NOW not after the fact when the touchy feely crowd insists you must heal. Become proactive not reactive. I'd much rather deal with my anger and outrage than grief. How about you?

Who Is Allah?


By: Soeren Kern

Europeans love to mock the salience of religion in American society, but they won't be laughing for very long. The de-Christianization of Europe in the name of "tolerance" is rapidly driving the spiritually shiftless continent into the arms of Islam. And now, amidst the postmodern theological confusion that defines contemporary Europe, even Catholic clergy are jumping on the Islamomania bandwagon.

The latest post-Christian theological spectacle comes to us from the Netherlands (of Ayaan Hirsi Ali fame), where the Roman Catholic Bishop of Breda, Tiny Muskens, says he wants Christians to start calling God "Allah" because he believes such a gesture would promote "rapprochement between Christianity and Islam". Appearing on Dutch television, the 71-year-old cleric said:

"Allah is a very beautiful word for God. Shouldn't we all say that from now on we will name God Allah? ... What does God care what we call him?"

Inquiring minds want to know: If the bishop really thinks the names "God" and "Allah" are interchangeable, why doesn't he ask Muslims to start calling Allah "Yahweh", the biblical name for God? But he won't, because he knows they won't.

Indeed, just because Christianity, Judaism and Islam are called "monotheistic" faiths, it does not follow that Christians, Jews and Muslims pray to the same God. So for those pre-postmoderns who believe that words still mean something, a quick survey of archaeology, history and theology-accompanied by a dose of common sense-can answer the question of whether the Allah of Islam is really the God of the Bible.

What Archaeology Says about Allah

Muslims claim that in pre-Islamic times, "Allah" was the biblical God of the Patriarchs, prophets and apostles. Indeed, the credibility of Islam as a religion stands or falls on its core claim of historical continuity with Judaism and Christianity. No wonder, then, that many Muslims get uppity when the claims of Islam are subjected to the hard science of archaeology.

Because archaeology provides irrefutable evidence that Allah, far from being the biblical God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, was actually the pre-Islamic pagan moon-god. Indeed, it is an established archaeological fact that worship of the moon-god was the main religion of the ancient Middle East.

But what about the Arabian Peninsula, where Mohammed (570-632) launched Islam? During the last two centuries, prominent archaeologists have unearthed thousands of inscriptions which prove beyond any doubt that the dominant religion of Arabia during Mohammed's day was the cult of the moon-god.

In fact, for generations before Mohammed was born, the Arabs worshipped some 360 pagan gods housed at a stone temple in Mecca called the Kabah. According to archaeologists, the chief deity of Mecca was the moon-god called al-ilah (meaning the god or the idol), which was shortened to Allah in pre-Islamic times. Pagan Arabs even used Allah in the names they gave themselves: Mohammed's father (Abdallah), for example, had Allah as part of his name.

What History Says about Allah

Historians say that pre-Islamic Arabs worshipped the moon-god by bowing in prayer toward Mecca several times a day. They would also make a pilgrimage to Mecca, run around the Kabah seven times and throw stones at the devil. And they fasted for one month, which began with the appearance of the crescent moon and ended when the crescent moon reappeared.

These same rites form the core of Islam today: Muslims bow in prayer toward Mecca; they make a pilgrimage to Mecca and run around the Kabah seven times; and they still throw stones at the devil. They also observe the fast of Ramadan, which begins and ends with the crescent moon.

Moreover, the ancient symbol of the pagan moon-god, the crescent moon, is the official symbol of Islam; it appears on the flags of Muslim countries, as well as on the tops of mosques and minarets everywhere.

Historians say that Mohammed, who as a traveling trader was exposed to Judaism and Christianity during his visits to different parts of the Middle East, tried to mimic those monotheistic faiths by taking Allah, the main deity within the Arabian pantheon, and making it the only god. Indeed, the basic confession of Islam is not that "Allah is Great" but that "Allah is Greater". Greater than all the other idols, that is.

But Islam also draws from other pagan traditions. For example, the tale of Mohammed's night journey into heaven parallels the Zoroastrian story of Arta Viraf. Zoroastrianism also inspired the Islamic belief that dark-eyed virgins await every man who enters heaven. And the Islamic ritual of praying five times a day? That, historians say, originates with the Sabeans, Syrian pagans who practiced an ecumenical mixture of Babylonian and Hellenic religion.

No surprise, then, that some scholars refer to Islam as monotheistic heathenism.

What Theology Says about Allah

Muslims claim that Islam is Judaism and Christianity reformed. They say the Koran confirms the truth of the Torah and the Gospels. But since those texts did not jibe with Mohammad's beliefs, they accuse Jews and Christians of changing and distorting the original versions. Muslims therefore assert that the Koran "clarifies" the Bible.

Even if that were the case, the Koran and the Bible present ideas about God (especially about His character) that are so diametrically opposed that any reasonable observer would conclude that each book refers to a distinct deity.

The Koran, for example, states unequivocally that Allah is an unknowable and non-personal deity. By contrast, the God of the Bible allows Himself to be known and desires fellowship with human beings on a personal basis. Indeed, the Bible says that Abraham (the same Abraham whom Muslims say they venerate) was the "friend of God."

The Koran also portrays Allah as a vindictive deity who hates sinners and desires to afflict them. But the Bible says God is love.

Moreover, the New Testament teaches that God loved humanity so much that He came to earth to pay the debt for man's sin, and that that act of grace is available for free to anyone who believes Jesus Christ is their personal Savior. But Islam denies that Christ was God or that He died in order to save humanity. Indeed, Allah does not provide any way for man to be reconciled to God.

And the theological differences go on and on, so much so that the God of the Bible cannot possibly be the Allah worshipped in Islam. Unless, of course, a Dutch bishop says so.

Allah and Eurabia

Mohammed thought the Jews and Christians of his day would receive him as a prophet. But the Bible says that any new revelation must agree with what is already established in Scripture (Isaiah 8:20). So they rejected his Allah as a false god. And Mohammed replied by setting his Islam on a permanent warpath against Judaism and Christianity that continues to this day.

The Dutch bishop and other Muslim fellow travelers think they can buy a fake peace with Islam by playing relativistic word games as a part of an "inter-faith" dialogue. But Muslims understand much better than do post-modern Europeans that ecumenical appeasement is a symptom of a Judeo-Christian civilization that is weak and dying.

The irony is that the real danger from Islam stems not so much from ordinary Muslims as it does from sickly Europeans who have subverted their Judeo-Christian heritage in search of secular hedonism. Because they live only for the moment, they are willing submit to anything, including Islam, as long as it doesn't interfere with the pursuit of pleasure today.

It has been more than 50 years since the late Christian apologist C.S. Lewis first warned about Western Civilization's disastrous lurch into post-Christianity. But even he would be surprised to see how quickly Islam is filling the religious and cultural vacuum that is post-Christian Europe.

It's not that Europeans haven't been forewarned. It's that they couldn't care less.

HELLO...is anybody paying attention? Do you care?

You better....Islam is coming....and they don't care who you are or what you do....
