Survey Finds Anti-Semitic Attitudes Rising in America

11/05/2011 Leave a comment

“MYFOXNY.COM – Swastikas were found painted on the facades of the Jackson Heights and East Elmhurst branches of the Queens Library and on the door of Congregation Tifereth Israel on Thursday.

The Anti-Defamation League today condemned the anti-Semitic graffiti. The ADL says there were 133 anti-Jewish incidents reported across New York City in 2010.

A nationwide ADL survey released just yesterday found that anti-Semitic attitudes have risen in America.

The ADL survey found that 15 percent of Americans – nearly 35 million adults – hold deeply anti-Semitic views. That’s up three percent from 2009.

‘The fact that anti-Semitic attitudes have increased significantly over the past two years is troubling and raises questions about the impact of broader trends in America – financial insecurity, social uncertainty, the decline in civility and the growth of polarization – on attitudes toward Jews,’ said Abraham H. Foxman, ADL National Director.” Read more.

Missouri: Pro-Israel Arab Gets Star of David Carved in His Back by Members of the Muslim Community – “About a year ago, I posted an Arabic language poem titled ‘Tears at the Heart of the Holocaust’ on my website, ArabsForIsrael.com. The poem expressed its Arab author’s love for the Jewish people and his mourning over what happened to them in the Holocaust. The brave poet, Mr. Alaa Alsaegh, is an immigrant to the US from Iraq, who now lives in Missouri. Such poems did not sit well with the Muslim community, which caused Mr. Alsaegh to be alienated from it. He received threats because of his support for the Jewish people, was called an infidel and a traitor to Islam, but he continued with his writing of poems and did not take the threats too seriously. Mr. Alsaegh, as well as Muslim critics and former Muslims who are accused of apostasy, are living under threats, but, lo and behold, if we dare to speak about our fears, we are immediately silenced and accused of being Islamophobes.” Read more.

Cognitive Dissonance? Obama to Position Himself as Leader of ‘Occupy Wall Street’ Movement While Anti-Semitism and Communist Sympathies Taint Protests – “Several anti-Semitic incidents have been reported during ‘Occupy Wall Street’ demonstrations in New York as Jews were blamed for the turmoil in America’s financial markets. In addition, anti-Israel signs were raised against ‘Israel’s occupation of Gaza’. The ‘Emergency Committee for Israel’ has published a hard-to-watch clip in which Jews are attacked and blamed for the financial crisis and assistance to Israel. The committee is a neo-conservative body headed by William Kristol, the Jewish editor of the Weekly Standard, which aims to convince Jews to vote for a Republican presidential candidate.” Read more.

Syria’s Choice: Murderous Secular Regime or Islamic Fundamentalists

11/05/2011 1 comment

Islamists in Syria?  For some reason there are no pictures of Nicola Tesla flashing through my mind.  I guess that means I’m not the least bit shocked …

By Khaled Abu Toameh – “As Syrian dictator Bashar Assad continues to slaughter his people, there are growing indications that the Islamists are increasing their efforts to replace his regime.

What started as a secular Facebook revolution against the Assad regime is now beginning to look more like a jihad [holy war] led by Muslim fundamentalists.

The Muslim Brotherhood is clearly seeking to hijack the anti-Assad protests, in both the political and military fields.

In the past few months, there have been many signs of a ‘return to Islam’ in Syrian society. Large banners urging women to wear the hijab have appeared in Damascus and other main cities and many restaurants and hotels have stopped serving alcohol in keeping with Islamic law. This is in addition to the fact that many of the daily anti-Assad demonstrations are being launched from mosques, especially after Friday prayers.

The Muslim Brotherhood is by no means a ‘moderate’ organization. Its motto leaves no room for questions about its true intentions: ‘Allah is our objective. The Prophet is our leader. The Koran is our law. Jihad [holy war] is our way. Dying for the sake of Allah is our highest hope.’ Muslim Brotherhood’s spiritual leader, Sheikh Yusef al-Qaradawi, has come out in favor of suicide bombings, which he cslled ‘evidence of God’s justice;’ the death penalty for homosexuals; the beating of women; a genocidal a hatred of Jews: ‘O Allah, do not spare a single one of them….kill them down to the very last one …'” Read more.

Shallow 5.6 Magnitude Earthquake Rattles Oklahoma City and Surrounding Areas – Strongest Ever Recorded in State

11/05/2011 Leave a comment

There’s been a whole lotta shaking in Oklahoma over the past 24 hours.  This latest 5.6 shaker might not cause a lot of damage, but it’ll definitely be enough to damage a good night’s sleep …

Update: I stand corrected. Reports are coming in of ‘significant’ damage to buildings near the epicenter as well as a section of highway buckling. At least one wall has collapsed and multiple chimneys have crumbled and fallen off buildings.

Richter Magnitude 5.6 – OKLAHOMA
Saturday, November 05, 2011 at 10:53:10 PM at epicenter
35.599°N, 96.752°W
Depth: 5 km (3.1 miles)

“The largest earthquake ever reported in the state of Oklahoma struck Saturday night, officials said.

The temblor had a magnitude of 5.6 and its epicenter was four miles east of Sparks in Lincoln County, according to the Oklahoma Geological Survey. The quake hit at 10:53 p.m.

The quake was reportedly felt as far away as Illinois, Kansas, Arkansas and Texas.

‘There’s a crack going from the closet to the ceiling. I’ve never seen that before. I was in my bedroom grabbing my phone and I happened to notice it,’ Moore resident Todd McKinsey said.

McKinsey said he lives near NW 12 and Santa Fe Avenue.

‘That’s drywall. It’s totally separated,’ he said.

‘Earthquake damage in Oklahoma, that’s an anomaly right there,’ McKinsey said.

‘The picture by the TV fell off the wall and we jumped up because we thought somebody had hit the house,’ Noeh Morales said.

‘It was like a roaring noise. I’ve never one that bad over here,’ he said.

Morales said he was asleep at his home near SW 69 and Pennsylvania Avenue.

‘It woke me out of a dead sleep. I felt the whole house shaking. I jumped and ran outside to see what was going on,’ he said.

The strongest earthquake previously reported was April 9, 1952 in El Reno, according to the geological survey. Its magnitude was 5.50.

The Lincoln County sheriff’s office said late Saturday that damage has been reported across the county, but were still responding to calls and was not sure of the extent of damage. The Oklahoma City fire department reported no injuries or serious damage as of 11:15 p.m.” Source – NewsOK.

IAEA to Reveal Iran Building Nuclear Weapons at Base Near Tehran, Iran: We Are ‘Ready for War’

11/05/2011 Leave a comment

By Yossi Melman – “Iran is pursuing its nuclear weapons program at the Parchin military base about 30 kilometers from Tehran, diplomatic sources in Vienna say. The Vienna-based International Atomic Energy Agency is expected to release a report this week on Iran’s nuclear activities.

According to recent leaks, Iran has carried out experiments in the final, critical stage for developing nuclear weapons – weaponization. This includes explosions and computer simulations of explosions. The Associated Press and other media outlets have reported that satellite photos of the site reveal a bus-sized container for conducting experiments.

Parchin serves as a base for research and development of missile weaponry and explosive material. It also has hundreds of structures and a number of fortified tunnels and bunkers for carrying out explosive experiments.” Read more.

Iran says it’s united and ‘ready for war’ with Israel, will hit the United States if ‘Zionist regime’ attacks – “Iranian Foreign Minister Ali Akbar Salehi on Thursday responded to reports claiming Israel is planning a military attack against his country, stating Tehran is ‘ready for war’ with Israel. ‘We have been hearing threats from Israel for eight years. Our nation is a united nation … such threats are not new to us,’ Salehi told Turkey’s Hürriyet Daily. Salehi further warned that if any country would attempt an attack, Iran would not hesitate to retaliate. ‘We are very sure of ourselves. We can defend our country,’ Salehi claimed. Salehi’s statements come a day after Iran’s chief of staff said Israel would be severely punished for any attack on Iranian soil. ‘We would make them regret such a mistake and would severely punish them,’ Gen. Hassan Firouzabadi told the ISNA news agency on Wednesday. ‘In case of an attack by the Zionist regime, the United States would also be hit,’ he added, without elaborating.” Read more.

India: Panic Over China’s Deployment of Four New Nuclear Ballistic Missiles

11/05/2011 Leave a comment

By Sachin Parashar – “China continues to deploy four new nuclear capable ballistic missiles, including one that can be launched from submarines (SLBM), causing fear among its neighbours and the US, says a latest report by Federation of American Scientists. This, coupled with Beijing’s reluctance to define its minimum deterrence posture, says the report, has raised doubts about its intentions in upgrading its nuclear and missile arsenal.

The report authored by scientists Hans Kristensen and Robert Norris estimates that China has 240 nuclear warheads. While the report focuses mainly on China’s attempts to target the US by assigning an increasing number of warheads to its long-range missiles, it says Beijing is now using the 7,200 km-range DF-31 missiles to target India and Russia instead of the earlier DF-4.

Indian officials say it’s worrisome that Delingha in central Qinghai province is one of the places, where most of the upgrade is taking place. Not more than 2,000km from Delhi, Delingha is meant to be used almost exclusively for India as other countries from here like Nepal, Myanmar and Pakistan are not identified as potential targets.

Kristensen told TOI that India was a potential target, but added that the Chinese nuclear policy is geared towards all potential adversaries, each of which has its own characteristics. ‘India to the south is countered with medium-range missiles from central (Delingha region) and southern (Kunming region) China,’ he said.

‘One factor that can contribute to making the situation better or worse between China and India is of course India’s own military modernization along the India-China border as well as India’s development of longer-range nuclear missiles that are more directly aimed at China,’ he added.” Read more.

Flashback: The Cold War was scary enough. Now try to imagine a nuclear arms race between China and India – “Europeans and Americans, who have dominated world affairs for so long, are understandably fascinated by the recent rise of China and India. It’s obvious that the rapid economic resurgence of these two great Asian powers fundamentally alters the global rules of the game… Lately, though, another element is threatening to complicate the strategic calculus: the nuclear factor. In themselves, of course, nuclear weapons are nothing new to either country. China has been a nuclear power for decades, while India conducted its first nuclear test in 1974 (though most outsiders tend to think of 1998, when New Delhi conducted a series of underground explosions designed to establish its bona fides as a genuine nuclear power). Although both countries have sworn off first use, both have built up formidable deterrents designed to retaliate against any attackers. So what’s new? A lot. Concurrent with their rising economic might, China and India have set about modernizing their militaries to lend extra muscle to their growing strategic ambitions — and given their complicated history, that can’t help but spark worries.” Read more.

Somali Muslims Cut and Beat Somali Christian in Kenya Unconscious Assuming He Converted from Islam

11/05/2011 Leave a comment

“A Somali Christian in Kenya is nursing injuries after young Muslim men from his country beat him with iron rods and wooden clubs last week, leaving him unconscious at a church entryway.

Hassan, a 25-year-old refugee from Somalia whose surname is withheld for security reasons, had hardly been raised as a Muslim, having received Christ at age 7. But the Somali neighbors in Kenya who attacked him left him for dead on Oct. 27, bleeding and naked, on the assumption that as a Somali he was born into Islam and was therefore an apostate deserving of death, the young man told Compass.

He and his mother, a convert from Islam who fled war in Somalia 10 years ago after the death of her husband, are part of an underground house church.

In a town in Kenya undisclosed for security reasons, Hassan was returning home from running errands at 8:30 p.m. when the six young Muslim men stopped him. They hit him with a metal bar on his forehead and face, he said, and he lost two teeth on the spot. Others hit him on the back.

Some stomped on his stomach while he was on the ground as others hit him on his legs, he said through bandages on his nose and above his mouth. His hands were bandaged where they wounded him with a knife.

The attackers stripped him of his clothes as he bled and dragged him away, dumping him at the entrance of an area Presbyterian Church of East Africa. Some passersby found him and called his mother, whose name is withheld for security reasons.” Read more.

Christian Bishop In Egypt: Christians Are Currently Experiencing Their Worst Time In Recent Centuries, Many Now Unable To Buy Or Sell

11/05/2011 24 comments

If we believed that all of these things were only supposed to happen after the rapture of the Church, then it’s high time to rethink what we thought we knew …

Revelation 13:16-18, “… it causes all, both small and great, both rich and poor, both free and slave, to be marked on the right hand or the forehead, so that no one can buy or sell unless he has the mark, that is, the name of the beast or the number of its name. This calls for wisdom: let the one who has understanding calculate [‘psēphizō’ – reckon] the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man, and his number is χξς.”

CopticChristianPersecution

ACN News – “Christians in Egypt are currently experiencing their worst time in recent centuries. This statement was made by the Coptic Orthodox Bishop Stephanos of Beba and Elfashn to the international Catholic charity Aid to the Church in Need (ACN). Christians are being violently killed under the eyes of the international media. Also, for the first time in many years, churches are being systematically burned and destroyed. The police are taking no action and nobody is punished for it. In the Egyptian media, ‘the facts are systematically covered up in order to keep the international media from reporting the truth and bringing pressure from outside,’ he complained. However, video films showing the massacre of demonstrators on 9 October were broadcast by the three television stations operated by the Coptic Church and have thus also found their way into the international media. This time the attacks on Copts ‘have been better documented’.

Problems are also experienced in day-to-day life because calls are often made in the media not to buy from Christian merchants or to sell anything to Christians. Businessmen are therefore faced with a struggle for economic survival. Christians are indirectly excluded from employment, for example by job advertisements specifying ‘a female employee with headscarf’. Attempts are being made ‘to drive the Christians out’.” Read more.

‘Bloody’: Christian Persecution is ‘Coursing Through Muslim-Majority Nations from One End of the Globe to the Other’ – “We hear so often about Muslims as victims of abuse in the West and combatants in the Arab Spring’s fight against tyranny. But, in fact, a wholly different kind of war is underway—an unrecognized battle costing thousands of lives. Christians are being killed in the Islamic world because of their religion. It is a rising genocide that ought to provoke global alarm… In recent years the violent oppression of Christian minorities has become the norm in Muslim-majority nations stretching from West Africa and the Middle East to South Asia and Oceania. In some countries it is governments and their agents that have burned churches and imprisoned parishioners. In others, rebel groups and vigilantes have taken matters into their own hands…” Read more.

Ethiopia: Radical Wahabi Muslims Seeking To Turn Ethiopia Into An Islamic State Governed By Sharia Law

11/05/2011 1 comment

Daniel 7:25a, “And he shall speak great words against the most High, and shall wear out the saints of the most High, and think to change times and laws …”

“In a recent press conference, the Ethiopian government have unveiled plans by the radical Wahabi Muslim sect to turn Ethiopia into an Islamic country governed by Sharia laws.

The government has also expressed its concern over the growing violence against moderate Muslims and Christians by radical Wahabi Muslims.

The Director General at the ministry of foreign affairs, Mersessa Reda said: ‘We have found evidences and pamphlets were publicly distributed during the month of Ramadan calling on the Muslim community to stand up against all non- Wahabi Muslims and other religion followers,’ he said.

Wahabi sect is a member of a strictly orthodox Sunni Muslim sect from Saudi Arabia. The doctrine strives to purify Islamic beliefs and rejects any innovation occurring after the 3rd century of Islam; ‘Osama bin Laden is said to be a Wahhabi Muslim’.

Reda on his part said: ‘At the moment our main duty is to save the innocent Muslims who being led to the traps of religious conflict in Ethiopia orchestrated by these Wahabi Muslim extremists’.

The Wahabi Muslim extremists are being engaged in underground violence and unrest instigation activities by abusing the freedom of religion and faith guaranteed by the constitution says, Ethiopian government official.” Read more.

The Islamists stopped assaulting the grandfather and turned their attention to the young man – swinging at his head and arms with their machetes… The attacks started on March 2 and lasted for a week; Muslims killed two Christians and wounded several others. The attackers burned down 69 churches and 30 Christian homes. They also robbed several Christian homes. Ten thousand Christians were forced to flee their homes following the attacks.” Read more.

Family Research Council: Obama Administration Demonstrates Further Hostility Towards Christianity by Opposing FDR Prayer at WWII Memorial

11/05/2011 Leave a comment

Barack Hussein Obama walks like a duck, talks like a duck, and even balks like a duck.  And all this while claiming to be a dove.  He may not look like your typical duck, but he’s certainly not a dove, either …

By Todd Starnes – “Republican lawmakers and conservative activists are expressing outrage after the Obama administration announced its objection to adding President Franklin Roosevelt’s D-Day prayer to the World War II Memorial in Washington, D.C.

The objection was noted during a congressional hearing on Rep. Bill Johnson’s, R-Ohio, bill — the ‘World War II Memorial Prayer Act of 2011.’

‘It is unconscionable that the Obama administration would stand in the way of honoring our nation’s distinguished World War II veterans,’ Johnson said. ‘President Roosevelt’s prayer gave solace, comfort and strength to our nation and our brave warriors as we fought against tyranny and oppression.’

Roosevelt asked the nation to join him in prayer as U.S. and allied troops launched the invasion that led to the defeat of Nazi Germany. He asked God to give the allied troops courage and faith, saying, ‘With thy blessing we shall prevail over the unholy forces of our enemy.’ …

Johnson told Fox News that the administration’s objection should ‘give all Americans a great deal of concern.’…

Tony Perkins, president of the Family Research Council said it’s not all that surprising.

‘This is further evidence that the administration has created an environment that is hostile towards American history — but in particular towards Christianity,’ Perkins told Fox News. ‘I hope America wakes up and realizes what this administration is doing to this country and how they want to radically and fundamentally change America.'” Read more.

US Would Be ‘Satisfied’ With a Muslim Brotherhood Win in Egypt

11/05/2011 Leave a comment

The Obama Administration is perfectly OK with the Muslim Brotherhood — the group from which Osama bin Laden and Ayman al-Zawahiri began as activists — winning free elections in Egypt.  What is wrong with this picture? …

‘The United States would be ‘satisfied’ should free elections in Egypt produce a victory for the Muslim Brotherhood, AFP reported Friday according to the US’s special coordinator for transitions in the Middle East, William Taylor.

Taylor said the US would judge elected parties in the Middle East based ‘on what they do, and not what they’re called,’ AFP quoted him as saying. He added that he did not meet with Brotherhood officials in his latest visit to Cairo, but would have had he been given the chance.

The point man on Middle East transitions said that so-called Arab Spring revolutions and a desire for democratic elections create an environment in which groups like the Muslim Brotherhood are able to shed associations with terror.

Taylor’s comments came the week after Tunisia – widely seen as the birthplace of Arab Spring revolutions – elected its own Islamist Ennahda party to form a governing coalition.

Ennahda emerged the victor in the nation’s first ever free elections.

The party, banned before the revolution that ousted President Zine al-Abidine Ben Ali, won 90 of the 217 seats in the new assembly.” Read more.

Where are the Muslim Brotherhood and the Obama Administration Taking America? – “Disturbing reports are coming out of Washington, D.C. These reports reveal the depth of the below-the-surface coordination between the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR), Hamas, Hezbollah, the Iranian regime and the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt, Syria, Tunisia, Libya and Jordan. This bloc of regimes and organizations is now becoming the greatest Islamist radical lobby ever to penetrate and infiltrate the White House, Congress, the State Department and the main decision making centers of the US government. All of this is happening at a time when the US government is going through its most strategically dangerous period in modern times because of its need to confront the Iranian Mullahs regime, which is expanding in the Middle East, as well as penetrating the United States, via powerful and influential allies.” Read more.

She is an intellectual professor and lawyer who defends Islamic law. She once served on the advisory board for Mohammed Alamoudi of the American Muslim Council, defending Alamoudi even after he made public statements supporting terrorism.” Read more.

Missouri: Somali Cabdriver Pleads Guilty to Funneling Money to Al-Shabaab Terrorists Back Home

11/05/2011 Leave a comment

74669-crescentbloodBY JENNIFER MANN – “ST. LOUIS • A Somali refugee who worked as an airport taxicab driver here was secretly plotting with leaders of an insurgent group back home to fund the terrorist organization, according to documents made public during his guilty plea Thursday.

Mohamud Abdi Yusuf, 31, acknowledged through his plea that throughout 2008 and 2009, he raised nearly $6,000 for al-Shabaab, an organization trying to topple the provisional government in war-torn Somalia.

The U.S. government named al-Shabaab a terrorist organization in 2008.

In a public statement, Dennis Baker, special agent in charge of the FBI in St. Louis, underlined the importance of the conviction, saying at least 20 American citizens have traveled to Somalia to join al-Shabaab, which has top leaders affiliated with al-Qaida.

The money at issue went toward a vehicle al-Shabaab used for tactical operations and to hide and deliver weapons, Assistant U.S. Attorney Matthew Drake said in federal court here.” Read more.
