Full Documentary: Rumors Of War III (Video)

04/27/2012 2 comments

The Obama Administration has officially concluded that the “War on Terror” is over. But only those suffering from a severe cerebral contusion will consider this a change they can believe in. If Obama and his liberal sock puppets wish to continue defending the indefensible, they’ll serve nothing other than to put the nation and the people they’ve been entrusted to protect at risk, for while America’s “War on Terror” is officially over, the war of terror against the West rages on …

Eric Stakelbeck, CBN News Terrorism Expert: “What we’ve seen since late 2010 is an arc descend upon the Middle East and North Africa. We’ve gone from largely secular dictatorships to radical Islamic dictatorships throughout the region, and for the first time — in, say, half a century at least — we’re hearing talk about the re-establishment of the Islamic Caliphate, which is a union, an Islamic “Superstate” united militarily, economically, politically — every Muslim nation acting as one all-powerful voice to take on Israel, and take on the West, and speaking loudly in particular at the U.N.”

Reza Kahlili: Fmr. CIA Agent and Fmr. Iranian Revolutionary Guard: “You cannot have a democratic system under Islamic government. That’s not possible because Islam itself — it’s totalitarian ideology — it does not allow for you to have another opinion or to have a policy against Allah’s will. And this is very clear in the Qur’an, so within any Islamic government you cannot have democracy, you cannot have free will, you cannot have freedom of speech, [you cannot have] freedom of press, and the laws are strictly the laws of Sharia Law.”

Russia: Prominent Muslim Lawyer Promises To ‘Cover Russia In Blood’ and Turn Moscow Into ‘A Second Dead Sea’ If Sharia Law Is Not Implemented

04/27/2012 1 comment

IANS – “Police in the Russian capital said on Wednesday they will examine a video in which a prominent Muslim lawyer pledges to ‘cover Russia in blood’ if the authorities refuse to establish courts to implement Islamic law.

‘May be you are foreigners here, and this is our home. We will set our rules, whether you want this or not,’ Dagir Khasavov, a lawyer and aide to an upper house committee chairman, said in an interview with the REN TV channel.

‘Any attempts to stop this will result in blood. We will turn the city (Moscow) into a second dead sea,’ he was quoted as saying.

Russian Chief Mufti Talgat Tadzhuddin condemned Khasavov’s statement.

Geidar Dzhemal, head of an influential group called Islamic Committee, said there might have been a ‘misunderstanding’.

Sergei Mitrokhin, co-head of the liberal Yabloko party, wrote on Twitter that he would ask prosecutors to bring extremist charges against Khasavov.

Khasavov recently announced plans to establish an international Muslim union to be governed by a system of Shariat courts.

Orthodox Church spokesman Vsevolod Chaplin warned against ‘restricting the Islamic community in living by their own rules’ but said it was unacceptable to ‘impose these rules on others outside your community’.” Source – DNA.

JTA – “ROME (JTA) – An Italian convert to Islam arrested for suspected links to terrorism was connected to a suspect who planned to bomb Milan’s main synagogue.

Andrea Campione, 28, who worked in a picture frame factory, was arrested in the Adriatic seacoast town of Pesaro on Monday during an anti-terrorism crackdown in several cities. Authorities said Campione was associated with Mohamed Jarmoune, a Moroccan man arrested last month on suspicion of plotting an attack on Milan’s main synagogue.

The Telegraph – “Widepread flooding, property damage and power cuts are expected as April’s fiercest storm delivers another month’s rain and 70mph winds from tomorrow – but the Environment Agency says the drought has got worse.

Homes and businesses in York city centre were flooded today, with other roads and farmland submerged as an inch of rain fell, with tornadoes also expected.

Trains were cancelled and delayed in West Yorkshire, while beach hut owners sobbed as their holiday bases in Seaton, Devon, were destroyed in gales.

The Environment Agency had 13 flood warnings and 42 alerts in place – with the north-east worst-hit – with 38 previous alerts making a total of 93 in 48 hours.

The month’s most powerful storm will batter the country for 24 hours from Saturday with the south and west worst hit as two inches’ rain – almost a month’s worth – and 70mph winds strike.

Flooding and fallen trees are forecast. Damaged properties, downed power lines, bridge closures and cancelled ferries are likely.

The Met Office is considering upgrading the severe weather alert for England and Wales to amber – meaning ‘be prepared’ – one level below the maximum red alert meaning ‘take action.’

The Environment Agency expects to issue dozens more flood warnings and alerts.

Independent forecasters Netweather predicted 70mph gusts in Wales.

Deluges mean England and Wales are on track for the wettest April since records began in 1766.” Read more.

IDF Chief: Israel, Other Nations Have Prepared Their Armed Forces For Potential Strike Against Iran

04/27/2012 1 comment

Associated Press – “Israel’s military chief said Thursday that other countries have readied their armed forces for a potential strike against Iran’s nuclear sites to keep Tehran from acquiring atomic weapons.

Lt. Gen. Benny Gantz did not specify which nations might be willing to support or take direct action against Iran. Still, his comments were one of the strongest hints yet that Israel may have the backing of other countries to strike the Islamic Republic to prevent it from developing nuclear arms.

‘The military force is ready,’ Gantz said. ‘Not only our forces, but other forces as well.’

‘We all hope that there will be no necessity to use this force, but we are absolutely sure of its existence,’ he told The Associated Press, adding that he was not speaking on behalf of any other nation.

Iran says its nuclear program is for peaceful purposes, and that it does not aim to develop atomic weapons.” Read more.

Flashback: Iran: When the Entire World is Armed With Nuclear Weapons, it is Permissible for Iran to Use These Weapons as a Counter-Measure – “‘The spiritual leaders of the ultra-conservatives [in Iran] have accepted the use of nuclear weapons as lawful in the eyes of shari’a. Mohsen Gharavian, a disciple of [Ayatollah] Mesbah Yazdi [who is Iranian President Ahmadinejad’s spiritual mentor], has spoken for the first time of using nuclear weapons as a counter-measure. He stated that ‘in terms of shari’a, it all depends on the goal.’… [T]he IraNews news agency published recent remarks by Mohsen Gharavian regarding the nuclear issue.

Limited Nuclear Exchange In One Of World’s Regions Would Trigger Mass Global Starvation From Long Lasting, Global Damage To Ecosystems

By The Wall Street Journal, Market Watch – “CHICAGO, April 24, 2012 /PRNewswire via COMTEX/ — Amidst Growing Tensions in Asia, India-Pakistan Confrontation Used to Show Dire Consequences Around the Globe; More Than A Billion People Would be at Risk Under ‘Nuclear Famine’ Scenario.

More than a billion people around the world would face starvation following a limited regional nuclear weapons exchange (such as a clash between India and Pakistan) that would cause major worldwide climate disruption driving down food production in China, the U.S. and other nations, according to a major new report released today by International Physicians for the Prevention of Nuclear War (IPPNW) and its U.S. affiliate, Physicians for Social Responsibility (PSR).

Dr. Ira Helfand, the author of ‘Nuclear Famine: A Billion People at Risk–Global Impacts of Limited Nuclear War on Agriculture, Food Supplies, and Human Nutrition,’ said: ‘The grim prospect of nuclear famine requires a fundamental change in our thinking about nuclear weapons. The new evidence that even the relatively small nuclear arsenals of countries such as India and Pakistan could cause long lasting, global damage to the Earth’s ecosystems and threaten hundreds of millions of already malnourished people demands that action be taken. The needless and preventable deaths of one billion people over a decade would be a disaster unprecedented in human history. It would not cause the extinction of the human race, but it would bring an end to modern civilization as we know it.’

The findings and the methodology on which the study is based will be published in a forthcoming issue of the peer-reviewed journal Climatic Change. Released during the World Summit of Nobel Laureates in Chicago April 23-25, 2012, the Helfand report was made possible with the financial support of the Swiss Federal Department of Foreign Affairs.” Read more.

By Stefan J. Bos, BosNewsLife Middle East Service – “TEHRAN, IRAN (BosNewsLife)– Iranian security forces have destroyed a 200-year-old Christian cemetery in southeastern Iran after they earlier used bulldozers to remove an historical church in the area, Iranian Christians said in comments monitored by BosNewsLife Thursday, April 26.

Iranian Christians said that ‘all the crosses have been taken out of the ground’ at another historical British cemetery in the southwestern port city of Bushehr, near the site where Iran develops a controversial nuclear facility.

The burial ground had also been used by the Christian Armenian minority of Bushehr but now seems to approach ‘complete destruction’, said Iranian Christians with close knowledge about the situation.

There was no immediate comment from Iranian officials on the situation in Busher.

CULTURAL HERITAGE

Christian news agency Mohabat News said however it had obtained comments from Mohammad Mehdi Afzali, public relations chief of Iran’s Cultural Heritage organization, in which he admitted that the ‘destruction’ of the Kerman cemetery.

Afzali reportedly said the removal of graves was part of attempts by his group and local authorities to ‘release lands’ in the areas of Ghal’e-Dokhtar and Ghal’e Ardeshir around a historical castle in eastern hills.” Read more.

04/27/2012 Leave a comment

Compass Direct News – “JUBA, South Sudan, April 26 (CDN) — Christians faced increased hostilities in Sudan over the past few weeks, culminating in an attack on a Christian compound in Khartoum by a throng of Muslim extremists armed with clubs, iron rods, a bulldozer and fire.

Breaking down the compound wall with a bulldozer, the assailants on Saturday (April 21) set fire to the Gerief West Bible School and the Sudan Presbyterian Evangelical Church (SPEC) building; they also damaged three other places of worship and other buildings in the same compound, sources told Compass by telephone. Also damaged were a clinic, a home for the elderly, classrooms and living quarters.

‘What happened could not be imagined – it was terrible,’ said the Rev. Yousif Matar, general secretary of the Sudan Presbyterian Evangelical Church synod. ‘They burned all furniture of the school and the church as well.’

Following a fiery call by hard-line Muslim sheikh Muhammad Abdel Kareem on Friday (April 20) to a crowd of more than 500 to destroy ‘the infidels’ church,’ he led the attack the next day, sources said.

‘Tomorrow at 8 a.m., Muslims in this area must gather in front of the infidels’ church and destroy them,’ Kareem told the crowd, according to Compass sources.

The next morning, according to Christian support organization Open Doors, authorities held the mob back about a kilometer from the compound, but the assailants dispersed and found their way back early in the afternoon.

‘Police at the compound stood back and did nothing to prevent the mob from vandalizing the compound,’ Open Doors stated in a press release. ‘There was no cordon around the Bible school or church, as some have stated in other media reports.'” Read more.

Court of Muslim Majority Azerbaijan Liquidates Christian Church

04/27/2012 Leave a comment

By Felix Corley, Forum 18 News Service – “In a 15-minute hearing yesterday afternoon (25 April), Judge Tahira Asadova of Administrative Economic Court No. 1 in the Azerbaijani capital Baku ruled to liquidate the Greater Grace Protestant Church, the judge’s assistant Parviz Zalyshov told Forum 18 News Service on 26 April. This is the first known enforced liquidation of a religious community since Azerbaijan’s harsh new Religion Law was adopted in 2009. When the ruling comes into force, any religious activity the Church or its members engage in will be illegal and subject to heavy punishment. The Church – which has had legal registration for 19 years – told Forum 18 it will appeal against the decision.

Asked how Judge Asadova could have taken a decision which means that any activity the Church engages in would be illegal and subject to punishment, her secretary Sevinj Ahmedova told Forum 18: ‘The court has decided.’ She said the decision will enter into force a month after the written verdict is issued, unless the Church lodges an appeal…

The 25 April hearing took place in the absence of any Church representatives. The lawyer had sent a telegram to the court asking for the hearing to be postponed because of illness…

However, both she and Zalyshov insisted the Judge had no choice but to go ahead. ‘There is a deadline of three months to complete a case,’ Zalyshov told Forum 18. ‘Yesterday was the last day. The Church knew that.’…

In defiance of its international human rights commitments, Azerbaijan has banned all exercise of freedom of religion or belief without state permission, imposing heavy penalties…

As of 26 April, only 570 religious communities are listed as registered on the State Committee website. Of these, 550 are of the state-backed Caucasian Muslim Board.” Read more.

Anti-Christian and Anti-Jewish Sentiment in Malaysia

04/27/2012 Leave a comment

By Anna Mahjar-Barducci, Gatestone Institute – “An anti-Semitic sermon prepared and distributed by the Malaysian Federal Territory Islamic Affairs Department was aired on March 30 in all the mosques of the capital city, Kuala Lumpur. The sermon called ‘to understand that Jews are the main enemy to Muslims as proven by their egotistical behavior and murders performed by them.’ The sermon, as the media outlet Malaysian Insider reported, also called on community leaders to understand the importance of Jerusalem for Muslims. ‘The honor of al-Quds [Jerusalem] and the al-Aqsa mosque must be defended by all Muslims, as it is holy land that must be blessed,’ the sermon had stated.

The media outlet, the Malaysian Insider explained that anti-Semitic feelings in Malaysia, which has no diplomatic ties with Israel, are not something new. and that the sermon was just a confirmation of the strong anti-Semitic and anti-Israel feelings in the country. The Malaysian National Censorship Board in March 1994 even banned the film ‘Schindler’s List’ from the country’s cinemas, in accordance with the country’s long-standing anti-Semitic cultural policies, according to Tel Aviv University’s Stephen Roth Institute,

In March 2012, the Malaysian opposition, Pakatan Rakyat (PKR), started to pressure the government also to legislate the banning of all ties with Israel, direct or indirect. The PKR leader even said that Malaysia should ban ‘the use of our ports by any company that has a trade interest with the Zionist regime.’ A Malaysian scholar based in Singapore, Dr. Farish A. Noor, further commented in the Malaysian Insider that as elections in Malaysia are around the corner all political parties are competing to show how ‘anti-Israeli’ they can be.

Malaysian journalist Abdul Haleem Abdul Rahiman wrote in the Malaysian Inslder that the rise of anti-Semitism and anti-Israel rhetoric in the politics of the country is becoming pathetic. ‘How many Jews have Malaysians met in their life? I bet at least 50% of the Malaysian population have never met a single Jew in their whole life. Just how much do we know about the history of the Palestine-Israel conflict? Has anyone read the Balfour Declaration? Just what is our problem with Israel? The Zionist oppression of Palestinians? Get this right. Not all Jews are in favor of this oppression. I personally know quite number of them. We have NO diplomatic ties with Israel. Perfect. Shut up and move on. Leave them alone. None of them is interfering with our daily life. […] Enlighten me please. Just on what basis do we hate them so much? Because they oppress our Muslim brothers and sisters in Palestine? What about Syria then? Let’s not even go into Islamic oppression in most parts of the African continent.'” Read more.

Flashback: Malaysia: Rise of Strict Islam Exposes Fears and Tensions, ‘If You Don’t Follow the Mainstream You Will Be Lynched’ – “Muslim women without headscarves are a common sight on the streets of the Malaysian capital, Kuala Lumpur. But engaging them in a discussion about the hijab is difficult. Norhayati Kaprawi is a Malaysian activist whose recent documentary Aku Siapa (Who Am I) deals with the issue of how women in Malaysia should dress. She found some women unwilling to show their faces in her film – not on religious grounds, but becasue they feared reprisals. This is a damning reflection on Malaysia’s Muslim society, says Ms Norhayati.” Read more.

Former Danish Church Minister: Islam Is A Direct Enemy Of Christianity

04/27/2012 Leave a comment

And, in light of the recent news that 16 churches are being closed due to lack of attendance, he’s therefore against them being used by Muslims and converted into mosques. Kinda puts a new spin on ‘standing in the holy place‘ …

By Nicolai Sennels, via Jihad Watch – “Former Church Minister Birthe Rønn Hornbech (Liberal Conservative) also participated in the debate about the future of the closed-down churches. She completely rejects the possibility that the churches can be taken over by Muslims.

‘I am against Christian churches being used by a religion that is a direct enemy of Christianity, which Islam is. Although not necessarily applicable to Danish Muslims, Islam is an enemy of Christianity,’ Rønn Hornbech wrote in an email yesterday to Berlingske News Agency.

The current church minister Manu Sareen (R) is more cautious in his wording on the future use of the churches. However, he asks for consideration:

‘I do not have a specific opinion about what a church can or should be used for when it is shut down. But there are many emotions attached to the churches, and it seems to be the general view in the public that a church should not be used for anything that is in strong contradiction with what it was used for in the past,’ Sareen wrote in an email to Jyllands-Posten.” Read more (Danish).
