‘We Haven’t Seen This Before’: USGS Issues Rare Earthquake Warning For Oklahoma

05/05/2014 Leave a comment

By Becky Oskin, LiveScience – “Mile for mile, there are almost as many earthquakes rattling Oklahoma as California this year. This major increase in seismic shaking led to a rare earthquake warning today (May 5) from the U.S. Geological Survey and the Oklahoma Geological Survey.

In a joint statement, the agencies said the risk of a damaging earthquake— one larger than magnitude 5.0 — has significantly increased in central Oklahoma.

Geologists don’t know when or where the state’s next big earthquake will strike, nor will they put a number on the increased risk. ‘We haven’t seen this before in Oklahoma, so we had some concerns about putting a specific number on the chances of it,’ Robert Williams, a research geophysicist with the USGS Earthquake Hazards Program in Golden, Colorado, told Live Science. ‘But we know from other cases around the world that if you have an increasing number of small earthquakes, the chances of a larger one will go up.’ [Watch 2500+ Oklahoma Earthquakes Since 2012 (Video)]

That’s why earthquakes of magnitude 5 and larger are more frequent in states such as California and Alaska, where thousands of smaller temblors hit every year.

This is the first time the USGS has issued an earthquake warning for a state east of the Rockies, Williams said. Such seismic hazard assessments are more typically issued for Western states following large quakes, to warn residents of the risk of damaging aftershocks, he said.

The geological agencies took action after the rate of earthquakes in Oklahoma outpaced that of even California for the first few months of 2014. (California regained the lead in April.)

‘The rate of earthquakes increased dramatically in March and April,’ Williams said. ‘That alerted us to examine this further and put out this advisory statement.'” Read more.

400,000 In Danger Of Human Rights Violations As Sharia Law Infects A New Corner Of The World

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 …” (KJV)

Get your skis shined up, grab a stick of juicy fruit. Articles like this sometimes make me wonder if the “he” of Daniel 7:25 can also be rightly understood as an “it” in a non-anthropomorphic sense as translated in Young’s Literal Translation, similar to how the Beast of Revelation 13:11-18 is translated as a “he” in some texts, but as an “it” in some others. Though it may not burn as many calories as the Giant Slalom, it’s certainly something good to chew on …

Daniel 7:25a, “and words as an adversary of the Most High it doth speak, and the saints of the Most High it doth wear out, and it hopeth to change seasons and law …” (YLT)

By Sarah Abramson, Shoebat – “Brunei, a small country with a population of about 400,000 that lies almost entirely within the borders of Malaysia, has made history by becoming the first East Asian country, and a developed one at that, to take on Sharia law.

Sharia will be implemented in three phases, starting last week and being completed in two years. Punishments to take effect begin with fines or jail time (missing Friday prayers, spreading other religions), continue on to whipping and amputations (theft, alcohol), and culminate with the death penalty (adultery, insulting Mohammed or the Koran).

Oh – and those who question or oppose the government’s actions and speak freely about it on social media?

 These acts, His Majesty elaborated, “are no doubt categorised as offences under the General Offences (of the law). They can no longer be given the liberty to continue with their mockery and if there is a basis for them to be brought to court, then therefore, the first phase of the Syariah (criminal) law this coming April will be relevant to them.”

(Brunei Prime Minister’s Office Website)

What about the 20% of the population who are non-Muslim, including Christians and Buddhists?

An Islamic Religious Council official said that they ‘can continue to practice their own religions’ and are protected under the law, as ‘there is no compulsion in Islam.’ (Sorry, but if this were true, there would be no need for Rescue Christians.)

But the International Council of Jurists is wary of this statement – nothing in the new law speaks about a different treatment of non-Muslims. In addition, the current situation in countries like Pakistan, Syria, and Nigeria is cause for concern regarding the ultimate fate of anyone, regardless of religion, in a Muslim-dominated country.

Let’s keep our eyes on Brunei- they may soon be in need of our help.” Source – Shoebat.

Unsealed: A Closer Look At Revelation 6 And ‘The Four Horsemen Of The Apocalypse’ – “John describes the rider of the Black Horse in Revelation 6:5 as having ‘scales’ or ‘balances’ in his hands, employing the Greek word ‘zygos which is also used metaphorically to refer to any sort of ‘burden’ or ‘bondage’ as well as the imposition of ‘troublesome laws’… In every facet of daily life a Muslim’s conduct must be based upon a strict set of Islamic laws, called the Sharia, and anyone failing to follow ‘Allah’s’ burdensome edicts must suffer draconian punishments, non-Musims included. But take a look at the Islamic world today. Is it exemplified by peace and justice and social harmony because of ‘Allah’s laws’? To the contrary, the Islamic world is ravaged by war, by deprivation, by desert and famine and starvation and pestilences, conditions that are true both physically and spiritually, both literally and figuratively. Because of ‘Sharia lawlessness’ the ‘Religion of Peace’ is typified by widespread destruction and disparity, and any number of recent headlines bear this out all too well.” Read more.

Muslim TV Station To Little Children: Shoot All The Jews

For peaceful purposes …

Qur’an Sura 4:76a, “Those who believe fight in the cause of Allah …”

By Robert Spencer, Jihad Watch – “Teaching genocidal aspirations to young children ought to be considered a form of child abuse. But the international ‘human rights community’ is too busy issuing condemnations of Israel and wringing its hands over ‘Islamophobia’ to take notice of this, or to take the time even to stop according the ‘Palestinians’ the moral high ground.

‘Hamas to kids: Shoot all Jews,’ by Itamar Marcus and Nan Jacques Zilberdik, Palestinian Media Watch, May 5, 2014:

Children were instructed to shoot “all the Jews,” on the weekly Hamas children’s program Tomorrow’s Pioneers this week. The young Hamas TV host Rawan talks to a young girl in the studio named Tulin, who tells her she wants to be a police officer when she grows up. The child host directs her to the conclusion that as a police officer she would shoot “all the Jews.”

Child host (Rawan): “Tulin, why do you want to be a police officer? Like who?”
Girl (Tulin): “Like my uncle.” …
Child host: “OK, so what does a policeman do?”
Nahul (adult in giant bee costume): “He catches thieves, and people who make trouble.”
Child host: “And shoots Jews. Right?”
Girl: “Yes.”
Child host: “You want to be like him?”
[Girl nods]
Child host: “Allah willing, when you grow up.”
Girl: “So that I can shoot Jews.”
[Nahul the bee claps his hands]
Child host: “All the Jews? All of them?”
Girl: “Yes.”
Child host: “Good.”
[Al-Aqsa TV (Hamas), May 2, 2014]

Earlier in the segment, which taught children about “neighbors’ rights”, Nahul, an adult in a giant bee costume, told children to take stones and “smash” “the Jewish neighbors.”

Palestinian Media Watch has documented the hate messages on this Hamas TV children’s program in the past, all presented by sweet puppets….

Why Does The US State Department Turn A Blind Eye To Countries Persecuting Christians?

05/05/2014 2 comments

Take a look at who’s in the White House and you’ll know why. When the US President goes out of his way to covertly recruit Muslims as US diplomats and even appoints a pro-terror Islamist to represent America at a UN Human Rights Conference, the question already answers itself …

“Religion which requires persecution to sustain, it is of the devil’s propagation.” – Hosea Ballou

By Brian Pellot, Charisma News – “Secretary of State John Kerry should cite 16 countries for severe violations of religious freedom, the U.S. Commission on International Religious Freedom recommended Wednesday in its 15th annual report.

The State Department’s ‘Countries of Particular Concern’ list has remained static since 2006, when eight countries — Burma, China, Eritrea, Iran, North Korea, Saudi Arabia, Sudan and Uzbekistan — were designated as CPCs.

USCIRF, an independent watchdog panel created by Congress to review international religious freedom conditions, criticized the government’s unchanged list of CPCs and sanctions against them, claiming such measures have ‘provided little incentive for CPC-designated governments to reduce or halt egregious violations of religious freedom.’

‘The past 10 years have seen a worsening of the already-poor religious freedom environment in Pakistan, a continued dearth of religious freedom in Turkmenistan, backsliding in Vietnam, rising violations in Egypt before and after the Arab Spring, and Syria’s descent into a sectarian civil war with all sides perpetrating egregious religious freedom violations. Yet no new countries have been added to the State Department’s CPC list,’ the report states.

USCIRF recommended that the CPC list be expanded to include these countries along with Iraq, Nigeria and Tajikistan. USCIRF’s 2013 report made similar recommendations, with the noteworthy addition this year of Syria.” Read more.

Nigeria: Islamists Abduct 300+ Teenage Girls In Recent Weeks, Names Released Are 90% Christian

Lord, help them …

Update: Muslim terrorists threaten to sell girls as slaves, abduct even more

Sura 33:50a, “O Prophet! Lo! We have made lawful unto thee thy wives unto whom thou hast paid their dowries, and those whom thy right hand possesseth of those whom Allah hath given thee as spoils of war…”

Al Rod Al Anf, Volume 2, Page 182, “You see [Allah] will soon make you inherit their land, their treasures and make you sleep with their women.”

Associated Press – “The number of kidnapped schoolgirls missing in Nigeria has risen to 276, up by more than 30 from a previous estimate, police said, adding that the actual number abducted by Islamic extremists on April 14 was more than 300.

Police Commissioner Tanko Lawan said the number of girls and young women who have escaped also has risen, to 53.

He told a news conference Thursday night in Maiduguri, the northeastern capital of Borno state, that the figures keep increasing because students from other schools were brought into one school for final exams last month after all schools in Borno state were shut because of attacks by Islamic extremists. Communications are difficult with the military often cutting cellphone service under a state of emergency and travel made dangerous on roads frequently attacked by the militants.

‘The students were drawn from schools in Izge, Lassa, Ashigashiya and Warabe A. and that is why, after the unfortunate incident, there were various numbers flying around as to the actual number of girls that were taken away,’ Lawan said.

Hundreds of women protested in at least three cities this week to express their outrage that the girls have not been found.

Two bombings in three weeks have also hit the nation’s capital, Abuja.

Reports this week indicated some have been forced into ‘marriage’ with their extremist abductors, who paid a nominal bride price equivalent to $12. Other reports that also could not be verified said some have been taken across borders, to Chad, Cameroon and to an island in Lake Chad. The reports come from parents and legislators who are in touch with villagers who have seen the girls with their abductors.

As the students, aged between 15 and 18, endure a third week of captivity President Goodluck Jonathan referred to them publicly for the first time at a May Day rally on Thursday.” Read more.

Nigeria: CAN Releases Names Of 180 Abducted Schoolgirls – “Amid the rising clamour for the release of the names and photographs of the schoolgirls who were abducted from Government Secondary School, Chibok in Borno State, the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) yesterday released the names of 180 … CAN said the kidnapping was premeditated and particularly targeted at Christians, as Chibok is a predominantly Christian community. It added that about 90 per cent of the residents are Christians, while the rest are of the Muslim faith. The names of the Christian girls as provided by CAN were as follows …” Read more.
