I Have A Dream: Egyptian ‘911 Truther’ And ‘Christianity-Does-Not-Exist’ Cleric Says War With Israel Is ‘The Dream Of My Life’

Thank goodness nobody in Egypt pays any attention to any of these Islamic clerics. Hey wait a minute

Egyptian Cleric Hisham Al-‘Ashri, January 10, 2013: “Under Mubarak, Egypt did not have a war for 30 years. Israel, on the other hand, did not last for 30 days without a war… England and France did not last for three years without a war… Our concept of war is that it is great to live in peace, as long as you do not enter a war in which you will be defeated… When I do not engage in a war for 30 years, but I allow my enemy to have a war every 30 days — this is negligence… It is the dream of my life to wage war against Israel, under the command of the state, the president, the regime, and the army. I will not decide all by myself to start a war.”

Indonesia: Six Christian Schools Threatened With Closure … For Not Teaching Islam

01/17/2013 1 comment

Muslim authorities who insist on Islamic teachings for Muslim students shouldn’t be allowing Muslims to attend Christian schools. It seems to me that they’re allowing this, however, for the express purpose of raising the issue of “regional bylaws” in an effort to rid Indonesia of Christianity one school (and one church) at a time …

By Mathias Hariyadi, AsiaNews – “Jakarta (AsiaNews) – Municipal authorities in Blitar, a town in East Java province, are threatening to shut down six Catholic schools ‘by 19 January’ if the latter do not provide Islamic courses and readings of the Qur’an to their Muslim students, in accordance with regional bylaw n. 8 of 2012, which requires all Muslim students to receive Islamic courses in school. The latter is based on a national law, the National Education Act n. 55 of 2007.

The six Catholic schools at risk are the Diponegoro Catholic High School, the Catholic Vocational Training High School, Saint Mary KG, Saint Mary Elementary School, and Yos Sudarso Catholic Elementary and Yos Sudarso Catholic Junior High School.

The schools received the municipal injunction in the final days of 2012, but their administrators have refused to comply with the directive by 19 January, this according to the head of the local department of the Religious Affairs Ministry.

So far, school administrators have not released any official statement on the matter because of the sensitive nature of the issue. Before expressing any opinion, they are set to take part in meetings with Catholic leaders.

Sources within the schools note however that Muslim students and their families had accepted their teaching programmes ‘without complaining.’ No one has ever ‘objected on religious grounds’.

In fact, it has been a long established practice that Indonesia’s private Christian schools, including those run by the Catholic Church, are not required to offer courses on Islam or readings of the Qur’an as in public schools. Instead, they provide courses and seminars on Christianity and catechism.

Muslim students who attend these schools can for their part take courses on Islam sponsored by their respective Muslim group.” Source – AsiaNews.

Flashback: Massive Increase of Radical Islamism Spreads Throughout Indonesia, Including ‘Top-Quality’ Universities – “The suicide bombing of a church in Central Java on Sept. 25 pointed not only to a new level of attacks on religious minorities in the world’s largest Muslim-majority country but to a political bent that accommodates Islamist extremism. ‘Radicalization of Islamic teachings and understanding is a problem in Indonesia,’ admitted Dr. H.

An Obama Nation: Southwestern Pennsylvania Hospital To Stop Delivering Babies Because Of Obamacare

AP, Fox News – “Pregnant women in one southwestern Pennsylvania town will soon need to look elsewhere to deliver their babies, after a local hospital announced it will end the practice in March — blaming ObamaCare in part for the decision.

The Windber Medical Center will stop delivering babies after March 31 because its obstetricians are either leaving or refocusing their practices, and because hospital officials believe they can’t afford it based on projected reimbursements under looming federal health care reforms.

The hospital, about 60 miles southeast of Pittsburgh, is losing two obstetricians and two others are shifting their focus more to gynecology.

In a lengthy statement posted to its website Wednesday, the hospital cited several reasons for the decision — including a claim that the population of women of child-bearing age is dropping and that the number of births the hospital would be called upon to perform isn’t enough for it to provide the service in the face of lower reimbursements under the federal Affordable Care Act.

Citing remarks made by Chairman of the Board, the Honorable David C. Klementik, the statement said, ‘…It was a difficult decision, but coupled with the recent and potential future changes in WMC OB providers, industry trends and market analysis, the board concluded that the timeliness and cost of recruiting a new team of obstetricians may not be feasible and therefore, may not serve in the hospital’s or community’s best interest.'” Read more.
