Arab World: New Evidence of Iran’s Nuclear Ambitions

03/05/2011 Leave a comment

“On March 1, the Pentagon announced it was sending the USS Monterey – a vessel equipped with the sophisticated Aegis radar system, capable of protecting Europe from a potential Iranian nuclear missile strike – to the Mediterranean.

The guided missile cruiser is the first part of a missile shield announced by the Obama administration in 2009.

Its deployment comes one week after the Vienna-based International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) released a notably outspoken report on Iran’s nuclear activities and lack of cooperation with inspectors operating under the UN Security Council’s mandate.

Issued on February 25, the report appears to agree, at least in part, with the conclusions of a new US National Intelligence Estimate (NIE) on Iran, about which members of Congress and their staff were briefed a week earlier.

Together, the reports paint a picture of Iran persisting in its controversial nuclear activities despite international concern, although the US report suggests that sanctions and sabotage have slowed the program.”  Read more.

Report Outlines the Islamic Threat to America

Shariah: The Threat to America
Center for Security Policy
Executive Summary

In 1976, the then-Director of Central Intelligence, George H. W. Bush, commissioned an “Experiment in Competitive Analysis.” Its purpose was to expose to critical scrutiny the assumptions and factual basis underpinning the official assessment of the totalitarian ideology that confronted America at the time: Soviet Communism. That official assessment was rooted in the belief that, through a policy of engagement known as détente, the United States and the USSR could not only avoid horrifically destructive conflicts, but could peacefully coexist permanently.

DCI Bush invited a group of known skeptics about détente to review the classified National Intelligence Estimates and other data concerning Soviet objectives, intentions and present and future military capabilities. The object was to provide an informed second opinion on the U.S. policy toward the Kremlin that was, ostensibly, warranted in light of such information. The conclusions of this experimental initiative — which came to be known popularly as the “Team B” study — differed sharply from those of “Team A”: the Ford Administration and the intelligence community.

“An outbreak of the H5N1 bird flu was diagnosed in a village near the West Bank city of Jenin, Palestinian news agency Ma’an reported on Saturday.

The Palestinian Authority Agriculture Ministry said that a flock of 2,000 turkeys was diagnosed with the virus but that its veterinary department had managed to prevent an epidemic, according to the report.

The PA’s veterinary unit destroyed the entire flock of turkeys and sterilized the farm before final results confirming the presence of the virus were even returned from a lab in Israel, Ma’an reported.”  Source.

Palestinian Jihadi Group: Kill Jewish and Christian Civilians In Jihad; They Are ‘Not Innocent’

03/05/2011 Leave a comment

“‘Our shari’a forbids killing innocent people, be they Muslims or infidels… However, in the course of a jihad operation, mistakes can always happen, and this in no sense means that jihad [operations] may be stopped or delayed.

‘If by ‘innocent people’ the inquirer means Jewish or Christian civilians [who live] in the country [where the jihad operation is to take place], then he should know that these people are fundamentally not innocent. Rather, they are aggressive combatants who are party to [the deeds of their leaders] in money, opinion, and counsel. Even if some of them are innocent, but cannot be separated from the aggressors whom the mujahideen aim to target – the [Muslims] scholars have ruled that, in the case of a surprise attack, it permissible to kill all of them [i.e., the bystanders along with the targets]…’

‘If by ‘innocent people’ the inquirer means Muslims who may be accidentally hurt during a military operation, [he should know that] it is neither permissible nor reasonable to refrain from fighting the infidels out of fear of hurting some Muslims, because this would mean stopping the jihad. Most of the infidel countries that are fighting Islam have some Muslims living in them. It is inconceivable [to stop the jihad on their account], especially in the current situation, when most Muslim countries are waging defensive jihad.'” Source – Memri.

Obama’s state of Islamic denial – Washington Times

03/05/2011 Leave a comment

“Note to Barack: ‘Allahu akbar’ is a Muslim war cry.

U.S. troops are gunned down by a shooter who screams ‘Allahu akbar!’ before opening fire. Official statements are rushed out: The perpetrator was a lone wolf; his motive was unclear; there are no links to terrorism. Sound familiar? It should, because when Islam is the cause of American tragedy, President Obama hides his head in the sand.

On Wednesday, a young Kosovar named Arif Uka opened fire on a bus load of U.S. Air Force personnel in Frankfurt, Germany, killing two and wounding two more. Witnesses say he repeatedly shouted the jihadist battle cry, ‘Allahu akbar’ as he emptied his weapon and screamed ‘Jihad! Jihad!’ when tackled by German police. Uka’s victims had been heading to the fight in Afghanistan but because the jihadists have a global battlespace, the war came to them instead.

Mr. Obama made a typical noncommittal statement shortly after the shooting, saying it was a ‘stark reminder of the extraordinary sacrifices that our men and women in uniform are making all around the world to keep us safe, and the dangers that they face all around the globe.’ He made no mention of the nature of the threat or the reason for the sacrifices. In this respect, he was behaving true to form.”  Read more.

Nearly 4000 Muslims Attack Christian Homes in Egypt, Torch Church

03/05/2011 Leave a comment

This is what Islamists do when given the ‘freedom’ to do so …

“A mob of nearly four thousand Muslims has attacked Coptic homes this evening in the village of Soul, Atfif in Helwan Governorate, 30 kilometers from Cairo, and torched the Church of St. Mina and St. George. There are conflicting reports about the whereabouts of the Church pastor Father Yosha and three deacons who were at church; some say they died in the fire and some say they are being held captive by the Muslims inside the church.

Witnesses report the mob prevented the fire brigade from entering the village. The army, which has been stationed for the last two days in the village of Bromil, 7 kilometers from Soul, initially refused to go into Soul, according to the officer in charge. When the army finally sent three tanks to the village, Muslim elders sent them away, saying that everything was ‘in order now.’

A curfew has been imposed on the 12,000 Christians in the village.”  Read more.

Most believe that prophecy is best understood the nearer we get to its fulfillment. If so, might the 666 in Revelation refer to Islam?  You decide.

End-Times Muslim Beheadings of Christians on the Rise

The Beast Rises

By Joel Richardson, WND – “I recently had the opportunity to have dinner with a very well-known Christian leader, scholar and missionary to the Muslim world. Among the various subjects upon which the conversation focused that evening, was the thesis of Dr. Philip Jenkins, British historian and author of several books, including ‘The Next Christendom,’ published in 2002. In this book, Jenkins theorizes that in the next few decades, the world may expect to see Christianity continue its decline in both Europe and the United States as it makes a drastic demographic shift to the south and the east. Jenkins claims that the United States will quickly lose its status as the Christian stronghold of the globe, and instead, Christianity will see its greatest strength in Latin America, Africa and Asia. Jenkins also ends his book with some dire warnings. With the rise of both Islam and Christianity together in many heavily populated Southern Hemisphere nations, we may expect to see a wave of religious clashes. Jenkins is not a wild-eyed alarmist. As a noted historian, his warnings are thoughtful, well supported by observable evidence and eloquently argued.

Among the nations Jenkins predicted we should watch, most notable is the African nation of Nigeria. The missionary with whom I was speaking agreed. As a well-known leader among the Christian missionary community worldwide, this individual is very well-connected and informed regarding the many trends in the global Christian and Islamic movements. He had some very relevant thoughts regarding the future of Africa. ‘What most of the missiologists are saying now is, ‘As goes Nigeria, so goes Africa.’ And it doesn’t look very good for Nigeria right now.’ He stated.

He then elaborated that while the numbers of Christian believers in southern Nigeria is vast, the churches tend to be very influenced by what is often called the ‘health and wealth gospel’ that is often associated with the American televangelists of the 1980s. In the north however, the churches are strong, but they are very small in comparison. He then continued with the following description:

The church in the south is not prepared for persecution and difficulty. When it comes, many fall away and become Muslims. I recently was invited to speak at a small pastor’s gathering in northern Nigeria. Almost every one of the pastors that I met had noticeable machete scars from Muslim attacks. The church there is suffering greatly, but they are prepared and they are standing strong. Sadly, however, they are Read more…

Christian Students Attacked by Muslim Mob in Ethiopia

03/05/2011 Leave a comment

By Michael Ireland, Assist News – “A Muslim mob February 26 assaulted and wounded 17 Christian college students on a mission trip in Oma village, Ethiopia. The mob overwhelmed the government militia who attempted to protect the students.

International Christian Concern(ICC) — — says the students, who were from Meda Welabu University, went to the Muslim village in Bale province on a short term mission trip.

According to a media update from ICC, after the students started to distribute Bibles and speak with the Muslims, one of the villagers angrily argued with them, inciting a mob to attack the students. The Muslims shouted Allah Akbar (God is great) as they hurled stones at the Christians and beat them with rods.

When the Christians fled the village, the mob unsuccessfully attempted to set fire to their car, ICC reported.

Speaking with ICC, one of the victims who wanted to remain anonymous said, ‘We thank God that no one was killed. It’s sad that we suffered the attacks despite the Ethiopian laws which say there is freedom of religion and equality in the country.’

According to the 2007 National Census, Christians make up 62.8 percent of Ethiopia’s population and Muslims make up 33.9 percent of the population. Ethiopia’s constitution guarantees freedom of religion but Christians living in Muslim majority areas of Ethiopia are occasionally attacked by Muslims.

‘We are alarmed by the spike in attacks against Christians in Muslim majority areas of Ethiopia. We urge Ethiopian authorities to investigate this latest attack and prevent similar attacks from occurring in the future,’ said ICC’s Regional Manager for Africa, Jonathan Racho.”  Read more.
