"If you're looking for a slick politician or a guy with great teleprompter skills, we already have that--and he's destroying our economy. I'm a doer, not a talker.
In Texas, we created 40% of the new jobs in the entire country since June of 2009, and we cut a record $15 billion from our state budget. Now they say we can't do that in Washington. Well, they're wrong, and they need to go.  I'm Rick Perry, and I approve of this message."

Pamela Geller speaks to the Sugar Land Tea Party in Sugar Land, Texas.

If it is important to you, ...

If it is important to you, you will find a way.
If not, you'll find an excuse.

Pro-life: the voice, the eyes, the hope. My story.

I am the voice for those who cannot speak, the eyes for those who refuse to see, the hope for the future generation.
I am pro-life.

My story:  When I went to Conyers, GA on the rumors that our Lady was appearing there, I did not see anything. But I left with the vivid realization that the murders happening daily in abortions cause great anguish to God (to express the reality in human terms). That's when I became involved passionately to stop this carnage, slaughter of innocent souls, affront to the Creator, Redeemer & Sanctifier.

This had to be the best quote of the year!

"As an American, I am not so shocked that Obama was given the Nobel Peace Prize without any accomplishments to his name. America gave him the White House, based on the same credentials."
~Newt Gingrich~

People like Obama made people like me immigrate to the USA

We were running away from people like him.  So, where do we go next?

American Muslims are just like you? Watch this first..

The Fable of Peter and Paul. Obama's Student Loan Bail Out Plan.

When you rob Peter to pay Paul, you can always count on Peter's vote.

Hilary Clinton's "The Common Good" is neither.

"We're going to take things away from you on behalf of the Common Good."  Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton.

My comment:
It won't be a common good anymore if you take away our God given rights, our freedom and dignity.  The individual came before the people and the people before the state.  The state exists for people, not people for the State.

Change by the Tea Party vs. the liberals

When the Tea Party is unhappy with the way things are going, they elect new representatives.  It is called a republic.
When the liberals are unhappy, they demand that the rich give up all their money and give it to them.  It is called a stick up.



When Obama can't get his way through Congress, he goes to the street to rally his supporters. He forgets that he is president for the entire nation and Congress is how people get represented and served. How can he be so presumptuous to think that he and he alone has America's interests at heart and that only he has the answers ? He forgets that he is only 1/3 of the government yet he circumvents the other 2/3 whenever they will not go along with him. Is this egotism or is he taking orders from someone else besides the people.







Truth is hate to those who hate the truth

That is why Muslims want to criminalize the criticism of Islam.

Obama Admin Attacks Religious Freedoms. Bishops Flee to Congress for Protection.

Source here or http://www.lifesitenews.com/news/us-bishops-to-congress-urgent-and-concentrated-action-needed-to-protect-r
WASHINGTON, DC, October 27, 2011 (LifeSiteNews.com) - Bishop William Lori, chair of the USCCB’s newly created Ad Hoc Committee for Religious Liberty, called on Congress to take action to protect religious liberty in testimony delivered yesterday before a House Judiciary subcommittee.


He told the committee that the USCCB’s decision this past June to create the committee he was now chairing was motivated by a pressing concern over the recent onslaught of attacks against religious liberty.

The bishop focused in particular on actions taken by the Obama Administration, including the controversial HHS mandate requiring employers to cover all contraceptives, including drugs that can cause early abortions.


Additionally, he pointed to the administration’s decision to withdraw government contracts from Catholic organizations such as Catholic Relief Services and the USCCB’s Migration and Refugee Services (MRS) based on those organizations’ refusal to provide “reproductive services” that conflict with Church teaching.

“Already, HHS has taken its major program for serving trafficking victims away from MRS and transferred it to several smaller organizations that frankly may not be equipped to assume this burden,” he said.

He also criticized the Department of Justice for the polemical tone of recent court briefs it had filed in opposition to the Defense of Marriage Act. According to Lori, the DOJ had claimed “that supporters of the law could only have been motivated by bias and prejudice.”  ...

Bishop Lori called for “urgent and concentrated action” in response to these attacks, including support for the Protect Life Act, the Abortion Non-Discrimination Act, and the Respect for Rights of Conscience Act.

He suggested that a Congressional hearing may be needed to investigate “the illegal conditions that HHS and USAID are placing on providers of human services.”
He also noted the existence of state attacks on religious liberty, such as New York’s failure to protect the conscience rights of court clerks who refuse to cooperate with same sex marriage and Illinois’ refusal to allow Catholic Charities to facilitate adoption and foster care.

Pope says no "holy wars" - not the way of God.

If video fails, click here or go to http://divine-ripples.blogspot.com/2011/10/pope-says-no-holy-wars-not-way-of-god.html


After traveling by train for just over an hour and half, the pope arrived to the city of Assisi for the inter-religious gathering. He boarded a small bus, along with other religious leaders, before arriving at the Basilica of St. Mary of the Angels. There, the pope personally welcomed all participants at the entrance.  


I don't think this Pope will kiss a bloody Q'uran anytime soon.  Good for him.  We need clarity in the Church not confusion. 

Why did Bl. Pope John Paul II kiss the Q'uran?

Why did Bl. Pope John Paul II kiss the Q'uran?  The same reason why Pope Pius XII kept diplomatic ties with the Nazis - to defend the helpless in the hands of the Nazis, now Muslims, and to save those that are being persecuted through diplomatic channels and stations e.g. churches and other religious institutions that had provided sanctuary to Jews back then and hopefully the Christians these days.  Bl. Pope John Paul II would have smoked a turd if it would save a single Coptic Christian.  St. John Bosco said that he would tip his hat to the devil, if he would let him snatch a soul from hell.

Muslims listen, even to Jews, if one can do this....

Our friend Professor Mordecai Kedar shows us all on how to stand up to the the Arab media. If only our Jewish Federations and Jewish leaders would stop talking peace and instead stand up for what is theirs. Respect comes before being loved. Jews need to stop looking to be loved and start looking to be respected.

The spirituality for fighting Muslims is the same as fighting devils.

Spiritual warfare.    

The second Vatican council took a conciliatory approach to Muslims - saying they worship the same God. But here we see that they do not see it that way. Their god Allah is differentiated from the god of the Jews and Christians. So, that Vatican declaration might be taken in the sense of James 2:19 "You believe that there is one God. Good! Even the demons believe that--and shudder." Muslims may recognize the same God in the same sense as the demons do.  And Allah is the moon god of the Bedouins - even if the word translates into G-D. There is no continuity from YHWH of Israel to the heavenly Father of Jesus vs muhammed's sock puppet allah.

So, it is consistent with an approach of no tolerance, no compromise, no acceptance of evil e.g. the deceitful ways and teachings of Islam.

Muslims press to make illegal criticism of Islam in USA

More from source at http://www.jihadwatch.org/2011/10/justice-department-meets-with-hamas-linked-islamic-supremacists-who-call-for-limits-on-free-speech-a.html
Top Justice Department officials convened a meeting Wednesday where invited Islamist advocates lobbied them for cutbacks in anti-terror funding, changes in agents’ training manuals, additional curbs on investigators and a legal declaration that U.S. citizens’ criticism of Islam constitutes racial discrimination.
The department’s “civil rights lawyers are top of the line — I say this with utter honesty — I know they can come up with a way” to redefine criticism as discrimination, said Sahar Aziz, a female, Egyptian-American lawyer.

“I’d be willing to give a shot at it,” said Aziz, who is a fellow at the Michigan-based Muslim advocacy group, the Institute for Social Policy & Understanding.

The audience of Islamist advocates and department officials included Tom Perez, who heads the department’s division of civil rights.

“We must continue to have the open and honest and critical dialogue that you saw in the robust debate,” Perez responded in an enthusiastic closing speech a few minutes after Aziz made her demands at the event.

“I sat here the entire time, taking notes,” Perez said. “I have some very concrete thoughts … in the aftermath of this.”...

Progressives ally with the Islamic lobby because “they think it will be a political voting bloc that will be reliably Democratic,” said Robert Spencer, an author and expert on Islam.

None of the Islamist advocates of civil rights officials in attendance, including Perez, objected to Aziz’s call for free-speech restrictions.

The event did not include Zuhdi Jasser, an Arizona Muslim, former naval officer and a co-founder of a coalition of modernist Muslim groups, the American Islamic Leadership Coalition. “The Islamist groups’ victimology feeds into the left’s propaganda that the right is anti-minority and anti-Muslim, so there’s a mutual political benefit there,” said Jasser, who clashes with Spencer over rival responses to the Islamist groups.

Nor did the conference include any influential critics, such as McCarthy and Spencer, who argue that Islamist terror attacks are partly motivated by Islamic texts. These texts include the Koran’s verse 9:5, which says “when the sacred months have passed away, then slay the idolaters wherever you find them.”

Aziz, however, used her invitation to argue that Americans’ fear of Islamists’ bombs has evolved into racism towards dark-skinned men.

The word “Muslim,” she said, “has become racialized. … I don’t accept this formalistic cop-out that this is all about religion.”

Aziz did not offer any evidence for her claim, which she said justifies the use of Title VI anti-discrimination laws against institutions and individuals who argue that Islamic texts spur Islamic violence.

This legal redefinition, she said, would also “take [federal] money away from local police departments and fusion centers who are spying on all of us.”

Aziz also argued against the commonplace police practice of informally talking with people in communities, including Muslim communities. “This has been a real problem with this outreach stuff,” she said. Muslims “are acting in good faith, and then they find their imams, who were going to outreach meetings, were being spied on,” she complained. “Some have been deported. Some have been prosecuted.”

In March, Afghan-born New York Imam Ahmad Wais Afzali was ordered deported after he admitted he lied to the FBI about warning a suspected Muslim terrorist that he was being investigated. That terrorist, Najibullah Zazi, admitted that he was planning to place bombs in the New York City subway. The imam learned about the investigation because he had offered to work with local police to help identify potential terrorists in his congregation.

“People are going in good faith” to talk with police, Aziz said. “They’re being very honest about what their grievances are. They’re telling the government, ‘This what we want you to do … [and] we want you not to spy on our community.’”

Dwight Holton, a Justice Department legal counsel based in Oregon, said the threat of criminal gangs or terror attacks justifies routine police contacts with locals. “When we go to a barber shop to talk to the community, we don’t tell them you can have a lawyer,” he said.

“You should,” Aziz immediately replied.

Aziz’s advocacy was supported by a second Islamist advocate, Islamic Society of North America president Mohamed Magid. He argued that “teaching people that all Muslims are a threat to the country… is against the law and the Constitution.”

Magid asked Perez to change the federal government’s rules governing terror investigations, for more private meetings with top justice department officials, for the reeducation of FBI agents, and for more people to oppose criticism of Islam, which he labelled “religious bigotry and hate.”

In 2009 the federal government named Magid’s organization an unindicted co-conspirator in the successful 2009 trial of three Muslims who smuggled $12 million to the Islamist terror group Hamas. Two of the smugglers received life sentences.

During his speech, Perez applauded the Islamist lobbyists for persuading government officials to end extra security checks on airline passengers from Nigeria and 12 Islamic countries. The checks were adopted in 2010 after a Nigerian Muslim tried to blow up a passenger aircraft on Christmas Day.

“What did we hear in the aftermath of that? We heard a lot of feedback from people in this room and from leaders across the country that we could be doing a better job [by ending the checks]… and a few month later, and thanks to you, we did just that,” Perez told the Islamist advocates....
:
:
Progressives, including Holton and Perez, choose to ignore the Islamists’ stated goals, Spencer said. “They assume — and force us to assume on pain of charges of ‘Islamophobia’ — that all Muslims are moderate, peaceful and have no intentions of bringing Sharia [Islamic law] here,” said Spencer. “No amount of evidence to the contrary, no amount of jihadi plots, and no number of demands for accommodation of Sharia’s provisions, ever disabuses them of this dogma.”

Hyatt in TX capitulates to Islamic interests and cancels event.

More from source: http://www.jihadwatch.org/2011/10/hyatt-hotel-chain-red-faced-over-capitulation-to-islamic-supremacist-anti-free-speech-thugs.html
or click here.

The temperature is rising in the dispute that erupted earlier this week when the Hyatt hotel in Sugar Land, Texas, abruptly canceled a tea-party event at which author and Atlas Shrugs founder Pamela Geller was scheduled to speak on the dangers of Islam.
Geller has blogged about it ("The quisling cowards at the Hyatt Place Sugar Land caved to intimidation"), the story has spread to European media outlets (the Daily Mail of London) and a wave of emails and telephone calls has been getting the chain's attention.

Now the company has contacted reporters with a statement that claims an apology has been issued, but Geller says the apology wasn't delivered to her yet. The company didn't respond to a query from WND about to whom the apology was delivered.

The argument is over the hotel chain's decision that because of "security" issues it would not allow the tea party-linked event at which Geller was scheduled to speak Tuesday night to be held on its premises.

The "security" issues reportedly were telephone calls made by Muslim interests who opposed Geller's right to speak about her concerns regarding the advance of Islam, and specifically its Shariah religious law, inside the United States, she reported.


Geller likened the hotel's cancellation to the enforcing of "blasphemy" laws under Islamic Shariah, because she was prevented from expressing a negative opinion about the advance of Islam. In nations under Islamic rule, criticism of Islam is banned and sometimes is a death-penalty offense.

Geller, however, argues she has a free-speech right under the U.S. Constitution to express her opinion about the religion in America.

The hotel chain said in an initial statement that it was a "business" decision. Shortly, it expanded that to say, "In light of the business disruptions anticipated with this event, it has been moved to an alternate location. The hotel thanks the organizers of the event for their cooperation in relocating the event."

Not good enough, and not even logical, Geller told WND.

She cited a 2008 visit by Iranian president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad to a Hyatt in New York in which thousands of people protested his presence. Yet, his visit was not canceled because of a "business" decision.

The Sugar Land decision was based on a handful of telephone calls to the hotel expressing opposition, according to her reports....

Jewish Group calls Sarandon to apologize for calling Pope a Nazi

Sarandon also drew strong criticism from the Jewish community.

"Ms. Sarandon may have her differences with the Catholic Church, but that is no excuse for throwing around Nazi analogies. Such words are hateful, vindictive and only serve to diminish the true history and meaning of the Holocaust," The Anti-Defamation League (ADL), which fights anti-Semitism, said in a statement while also calling on Sarandon to issue an apology to the Catholic community.

Mother beats toddler to death for lipstick ... with even more tragic twist afterwards.

This has been circulating in FB about a toddler who told her mother: “Mom, I painted the sheets with lipstick, ” outraged mother struck the child unconscious.  Then she apologized for what she had done and asked the child to open her eyes but it was too late. Her little heart had stopped. Bedroom sheets read…  “Mom, I love you.” ( It is dramatic but it may not be true.)

The comment below identifies the picture of someone who was mauled by a dog - not killed by her mom.  I kept the post to inform the readers about it just in case they knew the child.

A third party candidate will not guarantee Obama's victory

A third party candidate will not guarantee Obama's victory because Obama is also at odds with Democrats. While the Conservatives will definitely be split between the GOP and a third decent party, the Democrats can also be split between Obama and the third party guy. If the GOP candidate is a "health-care regulating, pro-abortion, flip-flopping, liberal, phony, RINO stiff", Conservatives will be hard pressed to vote for him in good conscience and conscientious Democrats will see no difference between him and Obama.

Egypt: Muslims Drag Naked Coptic Christian Thru Streets Screaming, "Allahu Akbar!" "La Ellah Ellah Allah!"

If video fails, click here or go to http://divine-ripples.blogspot.com/2011/10/egypt-muslims-drag-naked-coptic.html

Comment at source: "10/13/11 -- El Manshaa, Sohag, Egypt -- Islamist and Military attacks on Coptic Christians captures the frenzy of a muslim mob arrayed against the tiny Coptic community. This kind of outrageous act has been happening for centuries ever since the Muslims gained numerical advantage. The once Christian nation of Egypt has been slowly turned into an Islamic cesspool, in exactly the same fashion the rest of the Levant and Maghreb became Islamicized.

The Egyptian Police Deliver the young Christian Coptic guy to Muslim people to drag him naked in the streets & cheer Allahu Akbar-La Ellah Ella Allah! Then burn a Christian shop behind the Coptic Orthodox Church, demonstrating the Barbarism of Muslims and Islam."

My response: Egypt deserves another round of plagues for their inhumanity to their fellow men. They ceased to be the cradle of civilization the moment Islam took over their culture. They have now turned unto an uncivilized horde of demonic minions masquareding as religious zealots.

The Problem of Islam in Europe

If video fails, click here or go to http://divine-ripples.blogspot.com/2011/10/problem-of-islam-in-europe.html


According to Muslims: "Allah Subhanahu wa Ta'ala describes the personality of prophet Muhammad in these words: "And you stand on an exalted standard of character" (Holy Qur'an 68: ayat 4). Thus in the words of Allah Ta'ala, the standard of his character and personality is far above that of any other creation. He possessed the best and noblest qualities of the perfect man and was like a jewel illuminating the dark environment with his radiant personality, ideal example and glorious message." [Source: www.ummah.net]

Muhammad is revered throughout the Islamic world as al-Insan al-Kamil (الإنسان الكامل), the perfect man.

ooo OOO ooo

Some frightening facts that call into serious question the wisdom behind the Islamic tradition to copy the life of Muhammad, "the perfect life lived by the perfect man":

Narrated Anas bin Malik:
A group of eight men from the tribe of 'Ukil came to the Prophet and then they found the climate of Medina unsuitable for them. So, they said, "O Allah's Apostle! Provide us with some milk." Allah's Apostle said, "I recommend that you should join the herd of camels." So they went and drank the urine and the milk of the camels (as a medicine) till they became healthy and fat. Then they killed the shepherd and drove away the camels, and they became unbelievers after they were Muslims. When the Prophet was informed by a shouter for help, he sent some men in their pursuit, and before the sun rose high, they were brought, and he had their hands and feet cut off. Then he ordered for nails which were heated and passed over their eyes, and they were left in the Harra (i.e. rocky land in Medina). They asked for water, and nobody provided them with water till they died (Sahih al-Bukhari, Volume 4, Book 52, Number 261)

The authentic collection ( الجامع الصحيح, al-Jaami al-Sahih) or popularly al-Bukhari's authentic ( صحيح البخاري, Sahih al-Bukhari) is one of the Sunni six major Hadith collections Sunni view this as their most trusted collection.

and:

Kinana b. al-Rabi`, who had the custody of the treasure of B. al-Nadir, was brought to the apostle who asked him about it. He denied that he knew where it was. A Jew came (T. was brought) to the apostle and said that he had seen Kinana going round a certain ruin every morning early. When the apostle said to Kinana, "Do you know that if we find you have it I shall kill you?" he said Yes. The apostle gave orders that the ruin was to be excavated and some of the treasure was found. When he asked him about the rest he refused to produce it, so the apostle gave orders to al-Zubayr b. al-`Awwam, "Torture him until you extract what he has," so he kindled a fire with flint and steel on his chest until he was nearly dead. Then the apostle delivered him to Muhammad b. Maslama and he struck off his head, in revenge for his brother Mahmud. (Ibn Ishaq, Sirat Rasul Allah, translated as, The Life of Muhammad, (tr. A. Guillaume), Karachi: Oxford University Press, 1998, p. 515.)

ooo OOO ooo

Western Europe and Britain may have to choose between political correctness and the survival of its civilization.

Stressed is Desserts spelled backwards


That is why stress is reversed by desserts.

The truth about the Copts: denied by Egypt, distorted by Obama, ignored by the West and minimized by the media.

Truth and justice not lies and superficiality on massacre of Copts
by Bernardo Cervellera
The results of the autopsies will be released Oct. 27. But Egyptian army trying to silence the issue by manipulating the truth and accusing the Copts of provoking the violence despite the eyewitness accounts and videos. Shenouda III is opposed to the military’s version. Obama also assumes that the Copts were violent. Not to forget AsiaNews publishes some pictures of the massacre, sent by Coptic organizations.

Rome (AsiaNews) - The tortured bodies of Coptic Christians killed on 9 October demand truth and justice. The 26 still bloody corpses, heads smashed by the violence of military tanks and armored vehicles are piled up in of Cairo's Coptic Hospital and other hospitals in the city waiting for autopsy. Ihsan Kamel, head of forensic medicine, said it will take time and that the results will be published only on October 27. He also claimed that declarations made by forensic doctors in the past week may be inaccurate.

Perhaps this warning is due to scrupulousness and scientific accuracy. We hope it is not an attempt to discredit the eye-witness accounts of demonstrators or the evidence of doctors who stressed that the deaths of several victims was caused by bullets from firearms and from the crushing weight of heavy vehicles.

Yesterday, Magda Adly, chief of El Nadeem, a Rehabilitation Centre for Victims of Torture, said he witnessed the autopsy on the bodies of eight killed in Maspero (the area close to Tahrir Square, where the massacre took place) . According to Adly it is evident that the six bodies had been crushed by "heavy vehicles" and two had an "excessive" number of bullet wounds.

Adly’s testimony coincides with that of many survivors of the October 9 massacre amply documented in the many videos posted on the Internet (see for example:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v0y77M-FjHk&NR=1&skipcontrinter=1;
http://www.light-dark.net/vb/showthread.php?t=6804;
http://www.light-dark.net/vb/showthread.php?p=7917 # post7917).

In these images it is evident that the soldiers fired on an unarmed crowd. Just as it is clear that the armored vehicles deliberately mowed down defenseless protesters.

There is a blatant attempt, in Egypt and in the world, to hide the truth. Just one example: Daniel Mina, a Christian who was also a leader of the "Arab Spring" in Tahrir Square, was killed June 9 by gunfire and then crushed by an armored car. But his medical certificate does not say anything about the cause of his death.

The most powerful body behind these attempts to wipe out what happened on October 9 is the military. Two days ago at a press conference, the army rejected all the accusations against it. Showing reporters videos and photos, the two generals Adel Emara and Mahmoud Hegazy, claimed the soldiers had no live ammunition and that the armored cars that were trying to avoid the crowds by all means, who instead were throwing Molotov cocktails and stones.

At this attempt to wipe out the truth and deny justice the Orthodox Coptic Pope Shenouda III raised his voice. Meeting with Prime Minister Essam Sharaf yesterday, he reiterated that the Copts demonstration on 9 October, "was peaceful and the protesters had no weapons."

In his catechesis on Wednesday afternoon, two days ago, he reiterated the same idea and said that the carnage of recent days was "without precedent" in the recent history of the Church in Egypt. He himself cited the results of the first autopsies according to which two thirds of the martyrs were killed by gunshot wounds and that the remaining were crushed by military vehicles.

Many Christians and Muslims also wonder why there was a deployment of hundreds of thousands of policemen and soldiers – given that the Copts protest was authorized. This suggests that the head-on collision was intentional, perhaps to delay the elections, perhaps to maintain a state of emergency.

The multitudes of "Arab Spring", but also a large part of the Egyptian population, are becoming increasingly united in their condemnation of the army and its "fascist" methods, worse than under Mubarak. Yet, against all this, there is the scandal announced yesterday: there will only be an investigation into the Maspero massacre and it will be conducted by the military.

The army’s excuse is that there were armed violent elements among the protesters who started fighting with police. The Minister for Justice, Mohamed El-Guindy, said that interrogations of the arrested protesters have already begun and that the accused will be judged not by a civil court, but the military court.

The Coptic organizations in Europe, in a statement sent to AsiaNews, condemn the "triumph of shame" of the Egyptian army. They point their finger towards the Information Minister, Osama Heikal and the media which is subservient to him, who have launched a campaign against the Copts that were "killing" the army and Egypt.

The West seems to have totally distanced itself from Egypt. Under the weight of the Euro crisis, the EU limited itself to a generic condemnation of the violence and call for more respect for the rights of minorities, with the White House even espousing the theory of the Egyptian army. President Obama, deplored the "tragic loss of life among the demonstrators and security forces," adding that "it is time for restraint on both sides."

So the demands of democracy, press freedom, equal rights for Christians and Muslims - the heart of the struggles of the Egyptian "Arab Spring" - seem to be fading far away. This democratic vision also includes the right of Christians to build places of worship on a par with Muslims.

Once again, religious freedom is proven to be the key element of human rights. The Copts demonstration - also supported by many Muslims – was born from their demand for the right to build a church in Aswan, which was destroyed by the fundamentalists, backed by the local governor (a former general). Its tragic conclusion has laid bare the many human rights denied to the Egyptian population.

Some Coptic organizations have sent us some photos on the terrible slaughter of their brothers in faith, asking us to publish them. With some hesitation and with a strong dose of caution we have decided to publish them. "The blood of the martyrs - Shenouda III said at the funeral of some victims – does not come cheap": it is the enormous price that the Egyptians are paying for the dictatorship of their leaders and the shallowness of the West. Until justice is done by those slaughtered in Maspero, there will be no justice for Egypt.

Muslim Religious Leader in Egypt, The Grand Imam, Demands Pope to Apologize for Saying That Muslims Persecute Copts.

Al-Azhar Sheikh demands apology from Pope Benedict for Saying That Muslims Persecute Copts.

CAIRO: The Grand Imam of Al-Azhar, Ahmed el-Tayeb, reiterated his call for
Pope Benedict XVI, head of the Roman Catholic Church, to officially apologize for insulting Islam. El-Tayeb said such an apology is a basic condition for resumption of interfaith dialogue between the two religious authorities.

El-Tayeb met with Michael Girard, Ambassador of the Holy See to Egypt, and refused to resume relations between Al-Azhar and the Vatican until the Pope apologizes for insulting Islam and Muslims.

Occupy Wall Street. Be afraid. Be very afraid.

Video Exposing Occupy Wall Street Was Organized From Day One by SEIU / ACORN Front - The Working Family Party, and How They All Tie To The Obama Administration, DNC, Democratic Socialists of America, Tides, and George Soros

Reflection: Back in the 60s, the Liberals pushed the government to pull out of Vietnam. Vietnam is now under the Communist regime and the Vietnamese has lost their freedoms and basic human rights.

Today, we have these Liberals causing disorder and even subversion to change the Capitalistic system. If they like Communism, they should live in Cuba, Russia or Vietnam. Some of us know a little of what that is like that is why we fled here. I guess these people do not think much or know much history. They just get paid and brainwashed - to destroy America. It is sickening. May God help us.

Muslim mob attacks Christians in Pakistan - Oct. 11, 2011

"... some 50 armed Muslims raided the house of a Christian family over a land dispute.

“They arrived on motorcycles and tractors. They tortured women and stole livestock,” said Shakil James, treasurer of a village church belonging to the Church of Pakistan, who added that 16 Muslim men had been detained following a complaint to the police.

The attack was sparked by an ongoing land dispute between Muslims and Christians over a plot of land that the Church of Pakistan says is now owned by the government.

Local Christian landlords and politicians have begun holding community meetings to address the dispute and urge Muslims to seek legal avenues to pursue their dispute.

Father Emanuel Sharif, a resident of neighboring Amrit Nagar village, condemned last week’s attack and refuted local media reports that claimed a “local church” bought the land to build an orphanage.

“The previous Muslim farmer illegally allotted it in his own name before the posting of a new tenant farmer, a Christian. This resulted in an attack on innocent people,” he said."

Jesuits spend almost half a million dollars for carnal knowledge in religious life.

In order words, they spent $379,363 for a seminar about sex in their state of life. It is consistent with having Muslim rugs in the church and having a celebrity joke about Jesus being gay under their auspices.

The followers of Jesus in the early years of Christianity became celibate out of love for God. They did not study their sex lives after that decision because, they were focused on God. What do these Jesuits want to know?

Western Christians incl. Vatican turn backs on persecuted Christians in the East.


:
As for the Vatican, in the five years since Pope Benedict XVI laid down the gauntlet at his speech in Regensburg and challenged the Muslim world to act with reason and tolerance it its dealing with other religions, the Vatican has abandoned this principled stand. A true discourse of equals has been replaced by supplication to Islam in the name of ecumenical understanding. Last year Benedict hosted a Synod on Christians in the Middle East that made no mention of the persecution of Christians by Islamic and populist forces and regimes. Instead, Israel was singled out for criticism.

The Vatican's outreach has extended to Iran where it sent a representative to Mahmoud Ahmadinejad's faux counter terror conference. As Giulio Meotti wrote this week in Ynet, whereas all the EU ambassadors walked out of Ahmadinejad's Holocaust denying speech at the UN's second Durban conference in Geneva in 2009, the Vatican's ambassador remained in his seat. The Vatican has embraced leaders of the Muslim Brotherhood in Europe and the Middle East.

Obama by the Numbers - (video)

If video fails, click here or go to

How should the American people assess the performance of their president? One way is to examine key performance metrics, such as jobs, economic growth and inflation. This video offers a comparison of some of these metrics from at the beginning of President Obama's term to now. You can decide for yourself if you are better off than you were 3 years ago. A special thanks to John E. of the Ace of Spades HQ for providing the infographs used in this video, available at http://www.flickr.com/photos/johnnyshop/6196456311/sizes/o/in/photostream

09/30/2011 Egypt. Again, 3000 Muslims burn Christian Church, shops and homes.

Throng of 3,000, including Salafists, burn Christian-owned houses, businesses.

09/30/2011 Egypt (CDN)-A group of hard-line Muslims attacked a church building in Upper Egypt this afternoon, torching the structure and then looting and burning nearby Christian-owned homes and businesses.

The 3,000-strong mob of hard-line and Salafi Muslims gutted the Mar Gerges Church in the Elmarenab village of Aswan, then demolished much of its remains, multiple witnesses at the scene said. The mob also razed four homes near the church and two businesses, all Christian-owned. Looting was also reported.

Michael Ramzy, a villager in Elmarenab, said the attack started shortly after Muslims held their afternoon prayers.

“Imams in more than 20 mosques called for crowds to gather and destroy the church and demolish the houses of the Copts and loot their properties,” Ramzy told local media.

The Mar Gerges burning is the third church in Egypt in seven months to be burned down by a mob. Additionally, numerous other churches have been looted or otherwise attacked this year, including a New Year’s Eve bombing at the Two Saints Church in Alexandria that left 23 dead and scores critically wounded.

No casualties have yet been reported in today’s attack.

The tension in Elmarenab started the last week of August, when Muslim extremists, many of them thought to be members of the Salafi movement, which patterns its belief and practices on the first three generations of Muslims, voiced anger over renovations taking place at the church and anything perceived as a Christian symbol that could be seen from the outside.



To force the Copts to acquiesce to their demands, the Muslim extremists blockaded the entrance to the church and threatened Copts on the streets, in effect making them hostages in their own homes.

On Sept. 2, a meeting was held with military leaders and village elders in which the local leadership of the Coptic church agreed to strike all crosses and bells from the outside of the church. Normalcy returned briefly to the village, but by early the next week, the same people making demands for the removal of the crosses demanded the removal of newly constructed domes.

In subsequent meetings, known as “reconciliation meetings,” the priests of the church said that removing the domes would cause the building to collapse. Unfazed, the group of hard-line Muslims called for the church building to be burned.

During the dispute, the Muslim group claimed that the renovations were illegal because the building in question wasn’t actually a church, but a hospitality building – a claim cast into doubt as the original building on the site had existed as a church for roughly 100 years, and the parish received permission by the Aswan governor in 2010 to rebuild it as a church.

The attack is part of a larger and ever-increasing trend taking place in Egypt whereby a government official in a province or municipality grants permission for a church to be built or reopened, and hard-line Muslims threaten violence if services take place. Coptic leaders accuse the government of playing a colluding role in the violence by not enforcing the law, including a recently renewed and expanded Emergency Law, which stipulates imprisonment as a penalty for acts of sectarian strife, “thuggery” and vandalism of private property.
