Egyptian Army Destroys Monastery Walls, Opens Fire on Christian Monks

From Moonbattery

For the second time in as many days, Egyptian armed force stormed the 5th century old St. Bishoy monastery in Wadi el-Natroun, 110 kilometers from Cairo. Live ammunition was fired, wounding two monks and six Coptic monastery workers. Several sources confirmed the army's use of RPG ammunition. Four people have been arrested including three monks and a Coptic lawyer who was at the monastery investigating [the previous day's] army attack.

Monk Aksios Ava Bishoy told activist Nader Shoukry of Freecopts the armed forces stormed the main entrance gate to the monastery in the morning using five tanks, armored vehicles and a bulldozer to demolish the fence built by the monastery last month to protect themselves and the monastery from the lawlessness which prevailed in Egypt during the January 25 Uprising.

"When we tried to address them, the army fired live bullets, wounding Father Feltaows in the leg and Father Barnabas in the abdomen," said Monk Ava Bishoy. "Six Coptic workers in the monastery were also injured, some with serious injuries to the chest." …

Father Hemanot Ava Bishoy said the army fired live ammunition and RPGs continuously for 30 minutes, which hit part of the ancient fence inside the monastery. "The army was shocked to see the monks standing there praying 'Lord have mercy' without running away. This is what really upset them," he said. "As the soldiers were demolishing the gate and the fence they were chanting 'Allahu Akbar' and 'Victory, Victory'."

He also added that the army prevented the monastery's car from taking the injured to hospital.

The army also attacked the Monastery of St. Makarios of Alexandria in Wady el-Rayan, Fayoum, 100 km from Cairo. It stormed the monastery and fired live ammunition on the monks. Father Mina said that one monk was shot and more than ten have injuries caused by being beaten with batons. The army demolished the newly erected fence and one room from the actual monastery and confiscated building materials. The monastery had also built a fence to protect itself after January 25 and after being attacked by armed Arabs and robbers leading to the injury of six monks, including one monk in critical condition who is still hospitalized.

Pro-Life Flash Mob in Chicago Surprises "Walk for Choice". Joyful!

If video fails, click here or go to http://divine-ripples.blogspot.com/2011/02/pro-life-flash-mob-in-chicago-surprises.html

A "Walk for Choice" Rally was held at Chicago's Daley Plaza on Saturday, February 26, 2011. This exclusive video shows a Pro-Life flash mob taking the "pro-choicers" by surprise with Life, Spirit, and Truth!

The first scene shows the unsuspecting participants of the "Walk for Choice."

The "Shire" theme song is coming from the Pro-Life flash mob, just before they unveiled their hundreds of yellow balloons imprinted with "LIFE".

Participants of the "Walk for Choice" were asked to wear orange for the event, so the Pro-Life flash mob asks in their sign: "ORANGE YOU GLAD TO SEE US???"

Which side has more joy?

20 refugees rape an 11-year old girl in a public bath, Husbybadet Stockholm Sweden.

If video fails click here or go to  http://divine-ripples.blogspot.com/2011/02/20-refugees-rape-11-year-old-girl-in.html

They were mainly arab and african so called "child refugees". However they are in most cases adults lying about there age to obtain better benefits. In some cases they are in the high 20's and 30's while claiming they are teens. Almost 100 % of them show false id's or no id's at all, therefore they are never truly identified.

The government claim "we need more refugees" and similar mantra. The politicians have for many years forced mass immigration of biblical proportions. The voters has never given permission for the destructive immigration policy bringing in 100 000 new mostly illiterates from africa, asia and the arab world. Most of them are musilm.

The government TV has started a new indoctrination series to teach the swedes how to become good muslims. Its called, "islam for beginners".

The votes never approved mass immigration. A large majority object to it but they are forced to pay for all of it. The cost is staggering, the cost is estimated to one third of the nations overall budget.

On a regular basis the service for the swedes are cut back. A few days ago we could read about how old people living in government retirement homes got coffee and eggs for breakfast cut back to save money. The government even lie to motivate the cutback. They claim that eggs are unhealthy, a complete lie.

There has been much speculation as to who or "what" the Muslim Brotherhood is. But, one thing is for sure, it is NOT a "secular" organization. In fact, its ideology has spawned some of the most violent terrorist organizations in the world. If democracy is to prevail in Egypt, the Muslim Brotherhood is not the organization to bring it.

P1 Iranium The Movie Iran Does Not Want You to See

If video fails, click here or go to http://divine-ripples.blogspot.com/2011/02/p1-iranium-movie-iran-does-not-want-you.html

Part 1 Iranium The Movie Islamic Regime Does Not Want You to See دیدن این فیلم ایرانیوم ممنوعه

Green Movement Killed Hafiz , Saadi and Ferdosi are Next جنبش سبز حافظ، را کشت سعدی و فردوسی بعدی هستند

Lawmakers participated in a new film on Tehran's pursuit of nuclear weapons intended to get the attention of the White House and Congress.

The Iranian government, which claims it is expanding its nuclear program for peaceful energy purposes, has condemned "Iranium" and successfully lobbied Canada to postpone a showing of it. The Canadian government subsequently reversed course and showed the 60-minute documentary.
Iran declared last week, on the eve of the 32nd anniversary of the Islamic Revolution, that it had "mastered" nuclear fusion. The film explicitly ties nuclear dominance to the goals of the 1979 revolution, and points out how the nuclear progression has coincided with threats against Israel and the West.

"Iranium," which is narrated by Oscar winner Shohreh Aghdashloo, was screened in the Rayburn House Office Building on Tuesday. Reps. Eliot Engel (D-N.Y.), Allen West (R-Fla.) and David McKinley (R-W.Va.) were in attendance.

Price of higher education. Cost of higher ignorance. & Funding college now - 529.

There’s a lot of noise about the higher education bubble – like it’s not worth going to college anymore.

Though the price of education is expensive, the price of ignorance is even more. So, there are quantitative and qualitative differences. There’s the pay and considerations for advancement but there are other things i.e. perspective, attitude and confidence.

All things being equal, the college grad will be given more opportunities for entry and advancement because those credentials reflect certain qualities e.g. mental ability, diligence, discipline, industry among others.

Going back to the bubble, I think it is not in the community and state colleges because those are relatively inexpensive. And the ivy leagues will still be worth it depending on the program because if you’re a Wharton MBA or a Harvard Law graduate, then all the Fortune 500 companies will roll out the red carpet and pay you more than enough to recoup your investment. The bubble is in expensive private colleges or programs that are not that marketable.

Bottom line, if one can afford the time then there are economical ways to fund higher education e.g. grants, loans, scholarships and savings programs. An example of a saving program is the 529 account where contributions can be deducted from state taxes and the benefits can be transferred to another beneficiary – just in case your kid gets a scholarship and you can give it to someone else. The concept is like an IRA but even better because one can purchase a 2 or 4 year degree program at the current rate to use 18 years from now. Also, in the 529 program, one can opt to invest the money in a funds and hope that it grows as fast as the cost of education and not have any financial meltdowns that can wipe away the savings. I would go with paying for the tuition at today’s rate and having that program ready – to shield it from the market volatilities. I guess the risk there is if the state goes bankrupt. Anyway, this post is meant as a guide or pointer to explore the 529 programs. It varies by the state.

Pope analyzes revolts in Middle East with President of Lebanon

If video fails click here or go to http://divine-ripples.blogspot.com/2011/02/pope-analyzes-revolts-in-middle-east.html

24/02/2011 13:59:17: romereports February 24, 2011.Michel Sleiman, the president of Lebanon, visited Pope Benedict XVI at the Vatican for the second time. He is the only Christian president in the region. They exchanged views on the riots that have been sweeping through the Middle East and asked for an urgent resolution to the conflicts. Speaking in French, they also discussed the struggles for Christians in the Middle East.

The two spoke privately for about 30 minutes. According to the Vatican, they have highlighted the importance of collaboration and dialogue between Christians and Muslims, and stressed that “the presence of Christians and Muslims in Lebanon is a message of freedom and respectful coexistence throughout the Middle East.
The official statement underlines the importance of civil and religious authorities to educate the consciences for peace and reconciliation.
Sleiman was accompanied by his wife. He gave the Pope a sixteenth century gold and ivory incense burner, which came from a Maronite monastery.

My comments:  Are they discussing the issue of future Chrisitan refugees who will be fleeing persecution from the upcoming Islamic states of Egypt, Iraq et. al.?

Translation: The start of the attack on the monastery which was denied by the army

 H/T http://vladtepesblog.com/?p=30911

(AINA) -- Egyptian armed forces this week demolished fences surrounding ancient Coptic monasteries, leaving them vulnerable to attacks by armed Arabs, robbers and escaped prisoners, who have seized the opportunity of the state of diminished protection by the authorities in Egypt to carry out assaults and thefts.

"Three monasteries have been attacked by outlaws and have asked for protection from the armed forces, but were told to defend themselves." said activist Mark Ebeid. "When the terrified monks built fences to protect themselves, armed forces appeared only then with bulldozers to demolish the fences. It is worth noting that these monasteries are among the most ancient in Egypt, with valuable Coptic icons and manuscripts among others, which are of tremendous value to collectors."

On Sunday February 20, armed forced stormed the 4th century old monastery of St. Boula in the Red Sea area, assaulted three monks and then demolished a small fence supporting a gate leading to the fenceless monastery. "The idea of the erection of the gate was prompted after being attacked at midnight on February 13 by five prisoners who broke out from their prisons," said Father Botros Anba Boula, "and were armed with a pistol and batons. The monks ran after them but they fled to the surrounding mountains except for one who stumbled and was apprehended and held by the monks until the police picked him up three days later."

Catechism on The Church's relationship with the Muslims - on believing the same God

The catechism teaches:
841 The Church's relationship with the Muslims. "The plan of salvation also includes those who acknowledge the Creator, in the first place amongst whom are the Muslims; these profess to hold the faith of Abraham, and together with us they adore the one, merciful God, mankind's judge on the last day."

To me, this is the old doctrine of baptism of desire, where a person no matter what faith, and is unable to know Jesus not because of his own fault, invincible ignorance, is also baptised by his sincere desire if he lives according to his conscience. 

The problem or heresy comes when some Church leaders raises this cult to the same level as Christianity by teaching or actions e.g. sharing Church buildings.  In my mind, that puts Jesus the Incarnate Son of God, Second Person of the Most Holy Trinity down to how Mohammed defined him as a minor prophet but just a man.  Adoring the heavenly Father just as one would worship Allah negates the truth that Jesus is the Way and the only way to bridge the gap between God and man.

Then there is the flipside i.e. how do Muslims see Christians?  I have 20 links on the side of my page that reports how a Christian or Jew being murdered by a Muslim because of his Christian or Jewish faith daily.  So, while we see them as worshipping the Heavenly Father as Allah, I doubt if they see Allah in the Heavenly Father, much less in the Triune God of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit.  In fact, their doctrinal text, the Q'uran, is quite explicit about the negations. 
"They do blaspheme who say: Allah is one of three in a Trinity: for there is no god except One Allah. If they desist not from their word (of blasphemy), verily a grievous penalty will befall the blasphemers among them," (Quran 5:73, Yusuf Ali).

"They surely disbelieve who say: Lo! Allah is the third of three; when there is no Allah save the One Allah. If they desist not from so saying a painful doom will fall on those of them who disbelieve," (Quran 5:73, Pickthal).
who say: Lo! Allah is the Messiah, son of Mary. Say: Who then can do aught against Allah, if He had willed to destroy the Messiah son of Mary, and his mother and everyone on earth? Allah's is the Sovereignty of the heavens and the earth and all that is between them. He createth what He will. And Allah is Able to do all things," (Quran 5:17, Pickthal).

"And the Jews say: Ezra is the son of Allah, and the Christians say: The Messiah is the son of Allah. That is their saying with their mouths. They imitate the saying of those who disbelieved of old. Allah (Himself) fighteth against them. How perverse are they!" (Quran 5:30, Pickthal)
Then again, it may not matter even if they indeed descended from Abraham by their faith; because, didn't the Lord say, "And do not think you can say to yourselves, 'We have Abraham as our father.' I tell you that out of these stones God can raise up children for Abraham."  Mathew 3:9

On the contrary, former Muslims hold that Allah is not the same as the Christian and Jewish God. Watch the video below.

Christians asked to bow in submission to Allah

JERUSALEM – In what Egypt's Christians fear may be a sign of things to come, a senior Islamic cleric asked Christians to bow in Muslim prayer in an act of submission to Allah.
On Friday, famed Egyptian theologian Yusuf al-Qaradawi, a spiritual leader to the Muslim Brotherhood who hosts a popular Islam-themed television show on Al Jazeera, led the Islamicprayer servicesin Cairo's Tahrir Square, the epicenter of Egypt's uprising.
While he repeatedly offered nods to Egypt's Coptic Christians, unmentioned in most news media accounts of the ceremony was that Qaradawi asked all in attendance, specifically singling out Christians, to bow in Islamic prayer.  More from source  http://www.wnd.com/index.php?fa=PAGE.view&pageId=266385

Stimulating lactation.

When the mother does not produce milk, you have other options besides buying formula. Formula is no match for mother’s milk because it does not have the anti-bodies, colostrums and natural proteins that will give your baby immunities and support the brain development better. It is the last resort, in my opinion.

There are pumps – manual and mechanical; however, I don’t think those were intended to stimulate production as much as to extract what is already there for whatever reason. It might be painful to have one’s breasts filled with milk.

The little secret or old wife’s tale that I wanted to share with you is the idea that you, the husband, can stimulate lactation. Note those key words to search for videos, images and articles later. You would need to latch on to the breast just as the infant would have done and suck the milk out with jaw and tongue movements. (I found graphics of this before but lost them. I’ll keep looking and update the post  later. But I wanted to get this idea out to start you off.) Also, you need to open your mouth to cover the dark area around the nipple – like doing a mouth to mouth resuscitation.

(If this post was useful, just a little prayer for my family and me. Thanks and God bless.)

When tolerance is not Christian

Islam Excuses Rape using "uncovered meat" Defense

Excerpt "... Most of the men in the survey admitted they have harassed women and most of them blamed it on women for dressing provocatively. What is worse is that the majority of women in the survey believe that women who dress immodestly deserve the harassment.  
.... Mohammed himself, who is viewed as the ideal example for men, in all his battles against non-Muslims allowed sexual enslavement of women captives. Such Islamic history lessons send the wrong message to Muslim men and influence how they view and relate to women and take away any feeling of guilt or shame.  

From birth, Muslim boys are excused and defended for misbehaving towards their sisters and women in general. The message is that uncovered women are to be loathed and disrespected. Muslim preachers often rush to blame women as having “asked for it” or being “uncovered meat”. Even in Australia, an Egyptian Muslim preacher, Sheik al-Hilali, used the “uncovered meat” excuse to defend Muslim men who raped Australian women wearing bikinis on the beach. These kind of religious teachings are the reason behind honor killing, female genital mutilation and abuse, all of which are designed to tame women and set an example to the rest of society..."

Radical Islam Documentary.

If video fails click here or go to http://divine-ripples.blogspot.com/2011/02/radical-islam-documentary.html

http://ObsessionTheMovie.com/ Obsession - Radical Islam's War Against the West is a new documentary film that will challenge the way you look at the world. The is the full version of Obsession the movie.

Almost 70 years ago, Europe found itself at war with one of the most sinister figures in modern history: Adolf Hitler. When the last bullet of World War II was fired, over 50 million people were dead, and countless countries were both physically and economically devastated. Hitlers bloody struggle sought to forge the world anew, in the crucible of Nazi values. How could such a disaster occur? How could the West have overlooked the evil staring it in the face, for so long, before standing forcefully against it?

Today, we find ourselves confronted by a new enemy, also engaged in a violent struggle to transform our world. As we sleep in the comfort of our homes, a new evil rises against us. A new menace is threatening, with all the means at its disposal, to bow Western Civilization under the yoke of its values. That enemy is Radical Islam.

Using images from Arab TV, rarely seen in the West, Obsession reveals an insider's view' of the hatred the Radicals are teaching, their incitement of global jihad, and their goal of world domination. With the help of experts, including first-hand accounts from a former PLO terrorist, a Nazi youth commander, and the daughter of a martyred guerilla leader, the film shows, clearly, that the threat of Radical Islam is real.
Islam is being hijacked by radical extremists, who actively seek to destroy the shared values we stand for. The world should be very concerned.
This is a documentary film about Radical Islamic terror. A dangerous ideology, fuelled by religious hatred. It's important to remember, most Muslims are peaceful and do not support terror. This is not a film about them.

Ethics of Entrapment. Is what Lila Rose doing wrong?

Lila Rose has been criticized of unenthical behavior in her efforts to expose the immoralities and illegal activities of Planned Parenthood by entrapment.  Let me make a few observations to defend such an activity.

In the Hebrew Scriptures, an angel was permitted to test Job by killing his children and destroying his property.   Cfr. Job1-2.   That's a hell of a lot more than posing to be a pimp.

Also, using the morality of the greater evil one may ask:  which is more evil, to pose as a pimp to expose and curb the activities of an organization that murders unborn children or to do nothing?  Answer: to do nothing is more evil than to pretend to be a pimp.  St. Theresa of Avila said,  "Those who make no mistakes, make nothing."  And at the end, Christians are judged with what they have accomplished with their time, talent and treasure.  The one who did nothing and buried his one talent was punished for stupidity and sloth.  God told him, "You could have deposited the talent in the bank for interest if you were not going to use it as capital."  Cfr. Gospel of St. Matthew 25:14-30.

And come to think of it, who is the victim of the false witness?  Who is hurt by posing as a pimp?  It would be the reputation of the poser because people would think he is a shady character.  The 8th commandment was not against truth per se but against injuring another by the false witness.  So, the poser sacrifices his own reputation to stop an immoral institution.   And that is not bad because one can even sacrifice one's very life to help another in the Christian ethos.

So, in my opinion, the ways and means used by Lila Rose is acceptable in and of themselves.

How Bro. Joe helped me join the seminary

Bro. Joe Ferrer is a coadjutor brother with the Salesians of St. John Bosco.  He is a "monk" but not a priest.  He was the head of the Electronics department in the technical high school where I went.  Back in the 60's, electronics was leading edge technology.

By the end of my senior year, I didn't know where to go.  Like everyone else, I got an application to the state university but my heart was not in it.  I remember attending meetings of those who wanted to enter the seminary and being the only senior there.

I must have confided to Bro. Joe because after graduation, I worked at the electronics lab during the summer.  We sorted donated electronic components from Germany courtesy of Miserior.  During this time, Bro. Joe drove me to the seminary and arranged a meeting with the provincial superior of the order.  I was asking for an academic scholarship.  That was going to be my ruse to enter the college / seminary because, when I asked back in grade school, my mom wouldn't let me saying that I was too young.

In the meeting, Fr. Provincial opposed the idea saying that I would need to tell my mom sooner or later.  And that is what I did. My mom allowed me this time.

In this post, I want to highlight the effort of this brother in fostering and working for vocations and thank him for doing so.

Knowing Divine love without the basis of human love.

Is it possible to comprehend the love of God if one has not experienced love as a child?  Can one who was deprived even learn or be capable of loving others?  The principle behind this is, "Nothing goes into the intellect, mind, without passing through the senses".  So, is one doomed to a vicious cycle of unloving, loneliness and pain because of an unhappy childhood, a dysfunctional family and alike?

A professor of mine back in college, Fr. Danny Torres SDB, affirmed that dire consequence.  But somehow, I didn't want to believe it so - as I myself came from a dysfunctional family.  So I tried to find a real life example to disprove this and encourage others that they can break out of a vicious cycle.

I was going to cite the most popular child abuse case of David Pelzer and in his best-selling autobiography "A Child Called It:  One Child's Courage To Survive".  But if we click on the link, we'll see that he wasn't devoid of love because his mom did nurture him early on and his brothers supported him as well even during the tough times.

So if you know a saint who was totally neglected or unloved since infancy, but turned out to be a charitable believer, then let me know.  For now, Fr. Torres' response seems to hold because I cannot find an example to disprove his assertion.  Even Remus and Romulus were nurtured by wolves.

So, the only ones who were totally uncared for did not survive infancy - like the victims of abortion.  Anyone who survived would have had someone or something aid them as an infant cannot make it by himself. 

Isn't it wonderful then, that God has naturally necessitated an experience of love so that we can know, understand and believe in Him as Love?

Visions and Miracles Out of the Land of Egypt

If video fails, click here or go to http://divine-ripples.blogspot.com/2011/02/visions-and-miracles-out-of-land-of.html

Inspired by the miracles that began at the Church of Zeitoun in Egypt in the 1960’s, where a visage of Mary holding baby Jesus persisted on a ceiling despite cleaning, painting and construction, as well as other persistent events of visions, including church rooftop illumination outlining the mother Mary; a statue of Mary crying an oily substance that seems to have healing powers… Visions of Miracles examines how unexplained events in the most unlikely places prompt revitalization of faith, for the faithful and skeptics alike, demonstrating the presence of unexplained mysteries we call miracles in ways that defy both reason and explanation. Best selling author and filmmaker Paul Perry takes us on a journey of discovery deep inside the mystery and wonder of faith, providing visual and material examination/"God Reminds us of His presence through Visions and Miracles"
— Pope Shenouda III
