By Todd Starnes – “Street vendors across downtown Charlotte are selling posters and artwork depicting President Obama as Jesus Christ and the Democratic National Convention is expected to feature a stained-glass window backdrop during their meeting.
One poster features an image of the president in prayer with the headline, ‘Prophecy Fulfilled.’
‘Barak is of Hebrew origin and its meaning is ‘flash of lightning,’ the poster notes, referencing a passage in in the Old Testament book of Judges.
Hussein, they allege, is a Biblical word meaning ‘good and handsome.’
‘So you see, Barak was destined to be a good and handsome man that would rise like a flash of lightning to win victory in a battle against overwhelming odds,’ the poster read.
The posters were being sold outside security zones at the Democratic National Convention. The posters are not sanctioned by the DNC.
An Obama calendar, obtained by Fox News, features two religious images of the Commander-in-Chief.
The month of August includes a photograph of Obama’s birth certificate with the words ‘Heaven sent.’
The president was born on Aug. 4th.
The entry also includes a photograph of Obama along with a passage of Scripture from the New Testament.
‘For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life,’ the entry read — referencing John 3:16.
The month of November includes an image of individuals with their hands on Obama’s back — with the words ‘The Lord is my Shepherd, I shall not want.’
Fox News also obtained a photograph of a DNC stage design. It resembled a giant stained glass window. It’s unclear what the imagery will be used for.
The comparisons to Jesus Christ have brought strong condemnation from some evangelicals — including Robert Jeffress, pastor of the First Baptist Church in Dallas, TX.
‘If Barack Obama is the promised Messiah, I think there are going to be many Christians who are profoundly disappointed,’ Jeffress told Fox News. ‘One only has to look at Obama’s record to understand that he is absolutely, positively not the promised One.’” Source – Fox News.
Democratic National Convention Muslim Prayer Segregates Women, Islamist Wears Tattered American Flag
If I didn’t know better, I’d say the tattered & torn US flag was an intentional, not-so-subtle message to the American infidel …
Creeping Sharia – “Over at the Gateway Pundit, a commenter notes the sharia compliance enforced on women at the DNC Jummah. The real war on women, Islamic sharia (will not be televised).
Macsmind points out that one of the leaders of the DNC Muslim prayer event is wearing a ripped and torn U.S. flag around his neck.
Note the complete disrespect of the flag, draped in a way that suggestion “submission”.
… And the media is scurrilously trying to now claim that the event wasn’t sanctioned by Obama and the DNC who mysteriously deleted the Islamic event from their schedule after public concern of Democratic support for sharia law and jihad-preaching participants.
Lest you have any doubts that Democrats whole-heartedly support Islamic sharia law, recall just weeks ago that a prominent Democrat stated on video that Voting Against Sharia Law Is GOP Fear Mongering, Bigotry.” Read more.
Arutz Sheva Op-Ed: ‘Europe’s Streets Are Very Dark These Days And You Feel Like A Jew In Berlin In The ‘20s’
Revelation 17:5, 18a, “And upon her forehead [was] a name written, MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH … For all nations have drunk of the wine of the wrath of her fornication, and the kings of the earth have committed fornication with her …”

Berlin police said Monday that 13 girls from the Chabad Or Avner primary school were verbally abused with anti-Semitic slogans by four teenage girls fom the neighboring public school before their physical education class was to begin, according to the German news agency dpa. The Jewish school shares the gym with the secular school.
The four alleged attackers, aged 15 and 16, also reportedly photographed the Jewish pupils with their cell phones. Two young men accompanied the attackers.
A teacher tried unsuccessfully to intervene and speak with the teens, but they fled. At least one was wearing a Muslim headscarf, dpa reported.
The incident follows a brutal attack on Berlin Rabbi Daniel Alter, who was beaten by several men after they asked him if he was Jewish. Alter required emergency medical treatment. The attackers also reportedly threatened Alter’s 6-year-old daughter.
Reaction was swift from political leaders and the head of the Jewish community in both cases. Following the latest incident Gideon Joffe, the head of the Berlin Jewish community, said that Muslims must confront anti-Semitism within their community.
Some 11,000 Jews officially belong to the Berlin Jewish community, and it is estimated that another 10,000 to 20,000 live in the German capital.
For some Berlin Jews, the incidents are a disturbing reminder of underlying tensions with Arab neighbors.
Ayala Goldmann, who lives in the same neighborhood where Alter was attacked, told JTA that her first reaction was to consider ‘wearing a silver star of David pendant out of solidarity because I don’t agree that Jews should have to hide their identity in public.’
‘But then I thought about my 3-year-old son, and the fact that I don’t want any trouble with the Arab youth who live in the social housing near the commuter train station. I decided not to follow through on this idea because of [my son]. I just don’t want to take any risks.’” Read more.
President Morsi Adviser: Egyptians Have Overwhelming Desire To Implement Sharia Law, ‘And Not Only Its Principles’
Zarqa, who is the secretary of the Salafi Nour Party in Alexandria and a member of the constitution-writing assembly, told London-based Asharq Al-Awsat that while the majority of Egyptians want Islamic Sharia implemented, Article 2 of the Constitution states that only the principles of Sharia represent the main source of legislation. He said that the word ‘principles’ may have several interpretations, including one from the Constitutional Court saying principles need conclusive evidence, which could lead to a disregard of some authentic prophetic traditions, jurisprudential rulings and even a part of the Quran.
Zarqa added that he rejected ‘loose descriptions.’
Since the fall of former President Hosni Mubarak, the popularity of Islamists has been rising and they won a majority in Parliament, which was later dissolved. In August, protests were staged to express rejection of the political hegemony of Islamists, and particularly the Muslim Brotherhood and its political arm, the Freedom and Justice Party. Egypt’s newly elected president, Mohamed Morsy, also belonged to the Brotherhood.” Read more.
Flashback: Egypt: Increasing Number Of Egyptians Want To Ditch Peace Treaty With Israel, Model Its Government After Saudi Arabia – “As Egyptians prepare to vote for their first post-Mubarak president next week, the antipathy towards Israel espoused by the frontrunners aligns with the findings of a new survey, in which 61 percent of Egyptian respondents favor abandoning the Egypt-Israel peace treaty, up from 54 percent a year ago.” Read more.
Flashback: Crucifixion and Amputation: Egyptian MP Proposes Sharia Law Punishments – “… The proposed law calls for the application of ‘Heraba,’ an Islamic penalty for criminal actions that include overt robbery, murder, forcible taking of property with a weapon and vandalizing public facilities. The penalties according to Azzazy’s bill are execution in the case of murder, or cutting one arm and one leg from opposite sides of the culprit’s body in the cases of robbery and forcible taking of property. If the taking of possessions is accompanied by murder, the penalty would be death or crucifixion, to be determined by the judge.” Read more.
Israeli Security Official: Obama ‘Will Make Netanyahu Pay’ After Elections, ‘Relations Between Israel And The US Have Soured’
By Attila Somfalvi, ynet – “Israeli security officials on Saturday tried to downplay the Pentagon’s decision to significantly scale back its participation in a joint military exercise with Israel next month, but some government officials said the decision came as a response to the growing tensions between Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s office and the Obama administration.
‘This is the Obama administration’s response to the dinner party Netanyahu held in (Mitt) Romney’s honor,’ a senior member of the political-security cabinet told Ynet, while another official said the Pentagon’s decision ‘isn’t boosting deterrence and is not making the Iranians sweat.
‘Regardless of the exercise, the relations between Israel and the US have soured,’ another minister said, while another added cynically that ‘our relationship has never been better.
‘The US elections are in two months, and there is no doubt that President Barack Obama, if he is reelected, will make Netanyahu pay for his behavior,’ said the security cabinet member. ‘It will not pass quietly.’
Other officials in Jerusalem said Washington is trying to send a message that Israel will not drag it into war, certainly not before the elections. The Americans were enraged by Israel’s repeated threats to launch a solo military attack on Iran’s nuclear sites, and top US General Martin Dempsey’s recent statement that he does not ‘want to be complicit’ if Israel chooses to attack was carefully worded.
Officials said that while Jerusalem has received the message, the Americans’ conduct is leading Iran to believe that it is safe at least until the US elections.
‘This is why the Iranians are issuing threatening statements against the US,’ one official argued.” Read more.
Iranian Navy Admiral: Our Warships Will Sail Off American Shores Soon – “The head of Iran’s navy says the country aims to put its warships in international waters off the U.S. coast ‘in the next few years.’ The comments Tuesday from Admiral Habibollah Sayyari on state TV are part of Iran’s response to Washington’s beefed up naval presence in the Persian Gulf… Iran has made similar claims in the past that its ships could soon sail into international waters off the U.S. coast.” Read more.
God is dropped, but Allah remains …
Psalm 109:8, “Let his days be few, And let another take his office.”
The Washington Free Beacon – “Several pro-Israel sections of the 2008 Democratic Party platform have been removed from the 2012 platform—on Jerusalem, Palestinian refugees, and Hamas. The new platform represents another shift by the Obama Democrats toward the Palestinian position on key issues in the peace process.
For Jerusalem, the new platform has been brought into line with the Obama administration’s policy of not recognizing Jerusalem as Israel’s capital and supporting its division. Jerusalem is unmentioned in the 2012 document, whereas the 2008 and 2004 Democratic Party platforms declared ‘Jerusalem is and will remain the capital of Israel…It should remain an undivided city accessible to people of all faiths.’ The Obama administration’s refusal to recognize Jerusalem has been a point of significant controversy in recent months.
On the issue of Palestinian refugees, the new document has removed language from the 2004 and 2008 platforms specifying that Palestinian ‘refugees’ should be settled in a future Palestinian state, not in Israel.
The 2004 platform: ‘The creation of a Palestinian state should resolve the issue of Palestinian refugees by allowing them to settle there, rather than in Israel.’
The 2008 platform: The peace process ‘should resolve the issue of Palestinian refugees by allowing them to settle there, rather than in Israel.’
The 2012 platform contains no language on the matter.” Read more.
Democrats Drop ‘God’ From Party Platform – “Guess what? God’s name has been removed from the Democratic National Committee platform. This is the paragraph that was in the 2008 platform: ‘We need a government that stands up for the hopes, values, and interests of working people, and gives everyone willing to work hard the chance to make the most of their God-given potential.’ Now the words ‘God-given’ have been removed. The paragraph has been restructured to say this: ‘We gather to reclaim the basic bargain that built the largest middle class and the most prosperous nation on Earth – the simple principle that in America, hard work should pay off, responsibility should be rewarded, and each one of us should be able to go as far as our talent and drive take us.’” Read more.
