An Obama Nation: Food Stamp Recipients Outnumber Populations Of 24 States Combined

11/24/2012 1 comment

In 1959, Soviet premier Nikita Khrushchev said that, “We cannot expect Americans to jump from capitalism to Communism, but we can assist their elected leaders in giving Americans small doses of socialism until they suddenly awake to find they have Communism.” So much for small doses …

In November, the U.S. Department of Agriculture reported that a record 47,102,780 individuals receive food stamps.

According to US. Census Bureau data, that figure exceeds the combined populations of: Alaska, Arkansas, Connecticut, Delaware, District of Columbia, Hawaii, Idaho, Iowa, Kansas, Maine, Mississippi, Montana, Nebraska, Nevada, New Hampshire, New Mexico, North Dakota, Oklahoma, Oregon, Rhode Island, South Dakota, Utah, Vermont, West Virginia, and Wyoming.

Since January 2009, the number of individuals on food stamps has skyrocketed from 31.9 million to the current record high 47.1 million. By comparison, in 1969 just 2.8 million Americans received food stamps.

Also benefiting from the rapid rise in food stamps are companies like JP Morgan who administer Electronic Benefit Transfer (EBT) cards. A recent report by the Government Accountability Institute found that since 2004, JP Morgan’s 24 state EBT contracts have totaled at least $560,492,596.02.

Last year, the food stamp program (officially known as the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program or SNAP) cost taxpayers $72 billion, more than double the $30 billion spent four years ago.

The meteoric rise in the number of individuals receiving food stamps has spawned a thriving illegal online market for those seeking to turn their benefits into cash.

Today, one out of every seven Americans now receives food stamps.” Source – Breitbart.

France: Muslim Men Attack Jewish Students Outside School In Paris Suburb

11/24/2012 6 comments

The Times of Israel – “JTA — Students and faculty of a predominantly Jewish school near Paris have reported two attacks and one break-in in the space of 48 hours.

The first attack against students of the ORT high school in Montreuil, an eastern suburb of the French capital, occurred on Nov. 19 just outside the institution’s gates, according to a statement issued by the school. Six young men started hitting a small group of students ‘in a very determined way and without any provocation or even exchanging words.’

Pupils who rushed to their schoolmates’ aid – including one non-Jewish ORT student of Turkish descent — also were attacked, according to ORT. The attackers slammed one of them, Nathan M., against a parking meter. ‘He was severely beaten by the attackers, who fractured his nose and broke several of his teeth,’ according to ORT’s report on the incident. Police were called to the scene but the attackers had already left.

The following day, a 17-year-old Jewish female ORT student was attacked verbally and physically in a Metro station. The girl said she was waiting for a friend at Montreuil station when she was approached by a group of five men who she described as ‘north African.’ The report said the five men, one of them wearing a keffiyeh, a traditional Arab headdress, shoved her and told her to keep quiet or they would push her on the rails when the Metro train comes ‘like they did in Gaza.’

A third incident was discovered the same day, when security guards tried to detain a man in his thirties who was spotted on school premises. He ran away after telling the guards he was Muslim and that his presence there showed they had security failures, the report said.” Source – The Times of Israel.

Flashback: Imams’ Indoctrinating French Muslims With Culture Of Hate, Racism – “… French Jewish artist Ron Agam told the Algemeiner that, ‘It is about time now for the French authorities to radically search for these Imams and put a stop to the brainwashing on tens of thousands of Muslim kids in France.’ ‘It is unacceptable that this culture of racism and antisemitism is being tolerated by a significant number of the Muslim community, this culture must stop,’ he concluded.” Read more.

Sometimes Jews are also gunned down in broad daylight. How is it that this inhuman hatred has been able to contaminate the country that gave Europe freedom, equality and brotherhood?” Read more.

Saudi Mujahid Sheikh: Jihad Against The Cursed Jews Everywhere Is A Supreme Duty

11/24/2012 1 comment

MEMRI – “On November 16, 2012, the ‘Global Jihad’ website ( posted a fatwa by the Saudi mujahid sheikh Nasser bin Hamad Al-Fahd mandating jihad against the Jews. Al-Fahd has been incarcerated in Saudi Arabia since 2003 for praising the Riyadh bombings in May of that year. In 2004, the Saudi media reported that he had recanted his jihadi ideology, but subsequently he published a communiqué stating that he had been forced to do this and that he did not regret anything he had done before his arrest.[i]

In response to the question whether it is permissible to kill Jews and harm their interests everywhere, even outside Palestine, and whether this counts as jihad, the sheikh replied that the Jews are the leaders of the infidels and the greatest enemies of Islam and the Muslims in the present age. Therefore, jihad against Jews everywhere is ‘one of the most important duties and greatest virtues,’ and any guarantees of protection granted them by tyrannical and infidel governments are meaningless, especially when the Jews are attacking Muslims as they please. Al-Fahd stressed that, when jihad against Jews outside of Palestine is more harmful than beneficial, Islam does not permit it; however, the only ones who can determine whether this is the case are the mujahideen, not ‘those who shirk jihad.’

The following are excerpts from the question and fatwa:

Flashback: Grand Mufti of Saudi Arabia Calls for ‘Destruction of All Churches in Region’ – “According to several Arabic news sources, last Monday, Sheikh Abdul Aziz bin Abdullah, the Grand Mufti of Saudi Arabia, declared that it is ‘necessary to destroy all the churches of the region.’ The Grand Mufti made his assertion in response to a question posed by a delegation from Kuwait, regarding the position of a Kuwaiti parliament member who recently called for the ‘removal’ of churches (he later ‘clarified’ by saying he merely meant that no churches should be built in Kuwait). The Kuwaiti delegation wanted to confirm Sharia’s position on churches. Accordingly, the Grand Mufti ‘stressed that Kuwait was a part of the Arabian Peninsula, and therefore it is necessary to destroy all churches in it.’” Read more.

‘We Are Going To Damascus!’: Rebels Flying Black Flag Of Islam Seize Artillery Base In Syria’s Deir Al Zour Province

11/24/2012 3 comments

The fall of Damascus is not a matter of if, but when …

By DAVID ENDERS, The Miami Herald – “MAYADIN, Syria — After a siege that lasted nearly a month, Syrian government soldiers abandoned an artillery base in the town of Mayadin Thursday morning, handing anti-government rebels in southeastern Deir al Zour province a key victory that will allow them to move next to the airport near the provincial capital, one of the last positions the Syrian military controls in the province.

‘Then we are going to Damascus!’ rebels shouted on Thursday afternoon as they hoisted a black flag above the captured base, which had been a livestock feed plant before the Syrian military took it over.

The battle for control of Deir al Zour is one of the least watched in Syria, with no foreign reporters visiting this oil-producing region in months. But the struggle here is an important one, with the rebels hoping to use their advance to cut off the government’s access to its oil fields.

How quickly the rebels can eject the military entirely from the province is uncertain, however. The Syrian military still controls the roads leading into the provincial capital, also known as Deir al Zour, though the rebels are in the process of effectively surrounding the military there.

Rebels said Syrian army reinforcements sent from Tadmor, 100 miles to the west, helped evacuate Syrian soldiers from the artillery base at Mayadin. As the reinforcements arrived, rebels engaged them on the road to the base, destroying at least one Syrian army tank before the rebels were driven back by repeated attacks by a pair of Syrian air force jets and a helicopter.

The rebels have effectively cut off soldiers at a number of Syrian army bases in recent weeks around the country, including Hamdan Airport, also in Deir al Zour, near the city of Abu Kamal on Syria’s border with Iraq. On Tuesday, rebels overran a military base east of the country’s largest city, Aleppo, after a siege there. Last week, after another siege, rebels overran a pair of military bases on the eastern side of the country’s capital, Damascus, and appeared to have captured a number of weapons there, including pieces of advanced anti-aircraft missile systems.” Read more.

Syria: Islamist Rebel Strength Growing, Historic Evangelical Church Of Aleppo Destroyed With Explosives

11/24/2012 Leave a comment

Agenzia Fides – “The historic Arabic Evangelical Church of Aleppo, in the Jdeideh district (the old town), was mined with explosives and blown up ‘by armed men, for pure sectarian hatred’: This is what Pastor Ibrahim Nasir, spiritual leader of the Arabic Evangelical Church in Aleppo says, in a statement sent to Fides Agency, referring to the explosion which occurred two days ago.

Rev. Ibrahim Nasir expressed ‘bitterness and sadness of all Syrian citizens’ for an act that makes Christians ‘inconsolable’. The message sent to Fides says: ‘Today we are announcing the destruction of the Arabic Evangelical Church, the first martyr Church. Today the Mosque of the Umayyad of Aleppo and the Evangelical Church of Aleppo met in an embrace of pain, as they were embraced, since 1848, in the worship of God and service to man. Today is the day when we cry out to Christ to say: my God, forgive them, for they do not know what they are doing.’

In the tragedy that the Syrian people live, says the leader, ‘every church, every mosque is a haven for all those who have been forced to flee their homes.’ And states: ‘We will overcome our pain and rebuild our country, our church, our mosque and our humanity.’

The text concludes: ‘We cling with faith to the words of our Lord Jesus Christ: I leave you my peace, my peace I give unto you, not as the world gives you,’ thanking ‘all those who have expressed solidarity’ and praying to God ‘to pour out upon all Syrians the spirit of love.'” Source – Agenzia Fides.

Syria: More Al Qaeda-Inspired Groups Joining Rebels, ‘Islamic State’ Declared In Aleppo – “Fears of the growing influence of Al Qaeda-inspired groups inside Syria increased Monday with the release of video claiming the embattled city of Aleppo is now an ‘Islamic state’ and that 13 radical factions jointly rejected the country’s new opposition coalition. The statement appears to be a reaction to the Syrian National Coalition for Opposition and Revolutionary Forces, the newly formed alliance of opposition groups trying to overthrow President Bashar Assad’s regime… Jabhat al-Nusra, an organization that Western intelligence officials have linked to Al Qaeda and that has claimed responsibility for a string of bombings in Aleppo and the capital, Damascus, is purportedly one of the 13 groups…” Read more.

Syria’s New Opposition Seeking To Win Over Powerful Islamist Rebel Combat Units – “Syria’s new opposition leaders are struggling to win over powerful Islamist rebel combat units, whose radical elements question whether the ‘hotel warriors’ of the fledgling coalition can offer their fighters any real support. Islamists have established themselves as the most effective, best armed and fastest growing units in the 20-month-old uprising against President Bashar al-Assad… While the coalition has won formal recognition from Turkey, France, Britain and Gulf Arab states, the response from many Islamist fighters has been skeptical or downright dismissive. ‘We are with the coalition – for now. We want to see what it is going to do for us,’ said a fighter from one of the biggest Islamist brigades in the capital Damascus.” Read more.

Lawlessness: Nigerian Christian Mispronouncing Word Results In Businesses Destroyed, Christians Killed By Muslim Mob

11/24/2012 Leave a comment

BBC – “A rumour that a Christian man blasphemed against Islam has sparked a riot in the northern Nigeria town of Bichi, police have said.

Residents said four people were killed and shops were looted.

The riot came on the day the incoming head of the Anglican Church, the Rt Rev Justin Welby, launched an initiative to promote religious tolerance in Nigeria.

Religious clashes have claimed thousands of lives in Nigeria since military rule ended in 1999.

The militant Islamist group, Boko Haram, has also been waging an insurgency since 2009 to impose strict Sharia across Nigeria, which is roughly divided between a mainly Muslim north and a Christian and animist south.

‘Learning about religions’

Nigeria’s Kano state police chief Ibrahim Idris said ‘misinformation’ had triggered the riot, AFP news agency reports.

‘Rumours went round that someone blasphemed the Prophet [Muhammad] and there was a breakdown of law and order,’ he is quoted as saying.

The BBC’s Yusuf Ibrahim Yakasai in Kano, the main city in northern Nigeria, says that a heavy contingent of soldiers and policemen have been deployed to Bichi to restore order.

It is a small town about 30km (18 miles) from Kano.

Mr Idris said the riot broke out when a Christian tailor mispronounced the name of a dress while chatting with his Muslim neighbour in Hausa, the main language spoken in the north, changing the meaning to ‘the Prophet has come to the market’, AFP reports.

Angry Muslim youths then attacked Christian-owned shops, looting and burning them, he said.

Residents said four Christians were killed, but Mr Idris could not confirm this.” Read more.
