Luke 21:10-11, “Then He said to them, ‘Nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. And there will be great earthquakes in various places, and famines and pestilences; and there will be fearful sights and great signs from heaven …’”

IBN Live – “Eighty people were killed and about another 80 injured when a 7.7-magnitude earthquake hit southwestern Pakistan on Tuesday, with officials saying more persons could be buried under the rubble of collapsed homes.

At least 80 people have been killed so far in the quake that struck Awaran district in Balochistan province, according to a spokesperson of Frontier Corps, Balochistan.

About 80 injured people, including women and children, were brought to the Civil Hospital in Khuzdar, a spokesman for the Balochistan government said. Reports of death had been received from Awaran and Turbat districts, he said.

Hundreds of mud-brick houses collapsed or were damaged in Awaran and Khuzdar areas, officials said. Six bodies were found in Awaran bazar and four more in far flung villages of the district, said Deputy Commissioner Abdul Rasheed Baloch. ‘I fear more people are trapped inside collapsed houses,’ he said.

Ghulam Baloch, an administration official from Khuzdar, said, ‘Houses and shops have collapsed and the casualties could increase.’ Houses were also damaged in Pasni and Windar but details were awaited from these areas, Baloch said.

The army despatched 300 soldiers, rescue and medical teams and a helicopter to the worst-hit areas.

Chief Minister Abdul Malik said an emergency had been declared in Awaran, seven to eight hours’ drive from Quetta, the provincial capital. Both US Geological Survey (USGS) and Pakistan’s meteorological office gave the magnitude as 7.7 on the Richter Scale. USGS said five aftershocks measuring between 4.7 and 5.9 were recorded after the quake.

Hamas-Linked CAIR Running A Global Criminal Money Laundering Operation Out Of Washington, DC

09/24/2013 2 comments

For peaceful purposes, of course. Just don’t say anything about it, otherwise you’ll be labelled a “racist Islamophobe” …

The Qur'an made me do it.

The Qur’an made me do it.

By Robert Spencer, Jihad Watch – “It has been a bad week for the Islamic supremacist thugs of Hamas-linked CAIR: no sooner do they issue their wildly inaccurate ‘Islamophobia’ report than Islamic jihadists commit major acts of jihad mass murder in Nigeria, Iraq, and Kenya, thereby giving the lie to the claim that people have negative views of Islam because of an alleged network of allegedly well-heeled alleged ‘Islamophobes,’ rather than because of the actions of violent and supremacist Muslims avowedly acting the name of Islam. Then in the wake of the Kenya jihad murders, it came out that Hamas-linked CAIR was accused of interfering with the investigation into the Somali jihad group Al Shabaab’s recruitment activities in the U.S. — and American jihadis thus recruited are among the jihad murderers.

And now it turns out that they’re laundering money, too. Hamas-linked CAIR top dogs Nihad Awad and Ibrahim Hooper can still enjoy those Obama Justice Department soirees, but perhaps sanity will prevail and they will not be enjoying such access much longer.

‘Council on American-Islamic Relations’ (CAIR) Legitimacy Undermined by its Criminal Money Laundering Scheme,’ from the American Freedom Law Center, September 24:

Washington, D.C. (September 24, 2013) — The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), which bills itself as “the nation’s largest Muslim civil rights and advocacy organization,” released a so-called report last week entitled, “Legislating Fear: Islamophobia and its Impact in the United States,” which purports to identify dozens of organizations “dedicated to promoting anti-Islam prejudice in America.” CAIR’s report garnered significant media attention, including a full-length article posted in The Washington Post.

In the report, CAIR highlighted the American Freedom Law Center (AFLC), a national, nonprofit Judeo-Christian law firm, and its Co-Founders and Senior Counsel David Yerushalmi and Robert Muise, as being part of the “inner core” of the “Islamophobia network.”

In response to CAIR’s allegations, Yerushalmi commented: “For some time now, ‘anti-hate’ groups like the Southern Poverty Law Center and CAIR have been successful in promoting the notion that they are legitimate organizations that objectively highlight individuals and groups that promote ‘hate’ in America. In reality, these organizations use their compatriots in the mainstream media to advance their agendas through misinformation and duplicity. While the Southern Poverty Law Center is basically a self-serving fundraising machine masquerading as a civil rights organization, CAIR has a proven track record of dangerously waging what the Muslim Brotherhood calls ‘civilizational jihad’ to destroy the West from within. Indeed, CAIR is the largest Muslim Brotherhood-Hamas front group in America.”

After three years of litigation in federal court in Washington, D.C., AFLC has uncovered facts demonstrating that CAIR has been running a global criminal money laundering operation out of the nation’s capitol. The scheme was discovered in the course of legal discovery in two separate federal lawsuits arising out of allegations by five of CAIR’s former clients that CAIR defrauded them by failing to provide the legal services they had been promised.

While CAIR bills itself as the nation’s largest Muslim civil rights organization, it has been named by the U.S. Department of Justice as a Muslim Brotherhood-Hamas front group and an unindicted co-conspirator in the Holy Land Foundation criminal trial, the nation’s largest terrorism finance prosecution to date, resulting in convictions in 2008 for all five leaders of the terrorist financing ring operating as the Holy Land Foundation Muslim charity. Prison sentences ranged from 20 years to 65 years.

As brought out in the Holy Land Foundation criminal trial, CAIR founders Nihad Awad and Omar Ahmad were participants in the conspiracy, although not formally charged. These two men formed CAIR in 1994 in an effort to create a front organization to further the Muslim Brotherhood goals in this country. But, like many criminal fronts, CAIR itself turns out to be a criminal organization.”

France: Cousin Of Jihadist Mohammed Merah Jailed For Issuing Death Threats Against Jewish School

09/24/2013 1 comment

According to France’s Interior Minister, there may be dozens of potential Muslim mass murderers roaming the streets today. And he’s likely correct. Many family members and Muslim citizens of Toulouse alone, after all, believe that Jew-killer “Mohammed Merah, you know, he’s a hero, he’s a martyr of Islam” …

Hadith, Tabari 7:97, “The morning after the murder of Ashraf, the Prophet declared, ‘Kill any Jew who falls under your power.’”

Hadith, Sahih Muslim, 41:6985, “The Day of Judgement will not come about until Muslims fight the Jews, when the Jew will hide behind stones and trees. The stones and trees will say O Muslims, O Abdullah, there is a Jew behind me, come and kill him …”

By Elad Benari, INN – “A French man was sentenced to a year in prison on Monday for making death threats to a Jewish school in Toulouse by phone, AFP reports.

The man is the cousin Mohammed Merah, the terrorist who murdered Rabbi Jonathan Sandler, his sons Aryeh and Gavriel and Miriam Monsonego at the Ohr HaTorah school in 2012.

Before that, Merah murdered three Muslim paratroopers of North African heritage. He was ultimately killed when he tried to flee a police raid on his apartment.

The cousin who was sentenced is accused of calling the Ohr Hatorah School and saying, ‘I am going to smoke all of you tonight.’ At court he claimed he was innocent.

In June, French police charged a 30-year-old man with supplying weapons used by Merah.

France has seen a surge of 45% in the number of anti-Semitic incidents since the Toulouse attacks.” Source – INN.

Iran To Yet Another Imprisoned Pastor: Return To Islam, Or Remain Behind Bars

Hebrews 13:3, “Continue to remember those in prison as if you were together with them in prison, and those who are mistreated as if you yourselves were suffering.”

Pastor Behnam Irani and his wife and children

Pastor Behnam Irani and his wife and children

By Stefan J. Bos, BosNewsLife – “An evangelical pastor who has been jailed in Iran for his Christian activities said Monday, September 23, he has been told by a court to remain behind bars because he ‘did not change’.

Speaking to BosNewsLife through an interpreter, Pastor Behnam Irani made clear he remained faithful to Christ, despite court pressure to return to Islam.

‘I’ve the joy of the Holy Spirit. I’m very thankful for Christian activists who are fighting alongside with us,’ added the pastor.

Irani, 43, began a one-year prison term in 2011 but was later told he would also have to serve a five-year, previously suspended, sentence for ‘crimes against national security’.

There has also been concern he may face execution after a court advised such a sentence for alleged ‘apostasy’, or abandoning Islam…

Christians have linked the sentence to Irani’s Christian activities as an effective evangelical pastor of a 300-strong house church congregation of the evangelical Church of Iran movement.

The pastor is held at the Ghezel Hesar Prison in Karaj city, one of the toughest jails in the country, some 20 kilometers (12 miles) west of the nation’s capital Tehran.

He confirmed that the mistreatment and poor hygiene in the prison left him in poor health, including reported intestinal problems and rheumatism, but said he is ‘is fighting’.

Despite the difficulties, he told BosNewsLife he was ‘doing fine’ as his Christian faith keeps him strong.

On Monday, September 23, Irani said, he had been able to meet his wife and two young children…

His family has been trying to ask a local court ‘to pardon’ him and allow the pastor to be released from prison.

‘However a judge said he could not do so because I did not change my way’, Irani said.

A local court reportedly made clear he could be pardoned and released from prison only if he repented and returned to Islam. The pastor said he has refused and remains faithful to Christ.” Read more.
