obama vs. wrong - I'm Not Buying It!

Headlining Wrestlemania this Year

bho vs. the Rev. wrong

Hey why not? obama has already been on Monday Night Raw with the the other two candidates using a line that I said months that I had been waiting to hear --- "If you smell what barak is cookin".

If you don't believe me, you can ask anyone in my house or even my son in Utah that I have said for many months that bho sounds like former WWE superstar "The Rock". His "line" was "If you smelllllllll what the Rock is Cookin". I told them I pictured bho at a rally using The Rock's line, and there it was a couple of weeks ago on RAW.

OK now on to what I really want to talk about. Just like a scripted WWE wrestling match, I'm not buying for a minute that these two smiling buddies have all of a sudden become rivals and verbal enemies.

Rev. Wrong hasn't said anything different in the last two or three days that is new to this equation. The only difference is that the preacher who is wearing where his allegiance is to on his top in this picture, has been going public -- and said the bho is acting like a politician.

Stating the obvious, well duh --- bho is a politician!!!

I don't know if this was planned or not, as one of my conservative friends said she didn't agree with that point - but I'm not buying either side in this latest lover's quarrel (and no I don't mean homosexual love).

Most think that this is bho's worst nightmare, but I think that the timing for him is perfect. He has all but wrapped up the nomination for his party, barring a clintonian miracle, and getting this out of the way now is playing into the "they will forget by November" mantra.

Rev Wrong isn't stupid either, and he's the one "pushing" things now knowing the same thing I just said about forgetting by the fall election. It doesn't seem too far fetched to me that he would "take one" for his star pupil. What's he got to lose, he's getting paid speaking engagements to do it, and he seems to having fun with all of this.

I for one don't plan on letting our readers forget this charade now or in November.

The WWE is entertainment and I can change the channel. The election is for the Commander-in-Chief of the greatest country in the world - bho and this carnival-like side show does not qualify, and there is no changing the channel!

"Palestinian" Myths

From Jihad Watch

By Robert Spencer

In his "Fundamentally Freund" column "The myth of Palestinian moderation" in the Jerusalem Post, Michael Freund rightly skewers the Administration's fantasy-based policymaking regarding Israel:

Even for a president prone to misusing the English language, George W. Bush outdid himself last week.

Sitting next to Mahmoud Abbas at the White House, Bush gushed and swooned over the visiting Palestinian leader, describing him in terms usually reserved for heroes and saints.

"The president is a man of peace," Bush assured the gaggle of reporters who were present. "He's a man of vision. He rejects the idea of using violence to achieve objectives, which distinguishes him from other people in the region."

While Bush's grammar may have been uncommonly accurate that day, his description of Abbas was anything but. For even a cursory glance at some of the Palestinian president's outbursts in recent months reveal a man wholly undeserving of such praise.

On March 1, Abbas had the gall to insult the memory of the six million Jews murdered by the Nazis when he declared that Israel's counter-terror operations in Gaza were "worse than the Holocaust" (Jerusalem Post, March 2).

And in an interview with the Jordanian newspaper Al-Dustur on February 28, Abbas boasted that he had been the first Palestinian to fire a bullet at Israel after the birth of the PLO in 1965.

This ostensible "man of peace" then took pride in the fact that his Fatah movement had trained Hizbullah terrorists, and he did not rule out a return to the "armed struggle" against Israel in the future. And just two weeks ago, Abbas was planning to confer the Al-Quds Mark of Honor, the PLO's highest award, to two female Palestinian terrorists who took part in the killing of Israelis (Israel Radio, April 16). The event was cancelled only after it was publicized widely in the media. Need we also mention the Palestinian president's refusal late last year to recognize Israel as a "Jewish state"?


And let's cease calling Mahmoud Abbas a "moderate." Anyone who refuses to recognize Israel as a "Jewish state," makes a mockery of the Holocaust, and threatens a return to violence, is certainly not deserving of such a characterization. Instead, let's call Abbas what he really is. For if he looks like an extremist, sounds like an extremist, and acts like an extremist, chances are that he is one.

And more importantly, let's start treating him as such.

Indeed. Read it all.

The Myth of The Palestinian Ceasefire

While we're on the subject of Palestinian myths, see above, here's another.

"Palestinian groups shell Israeli areas near Gaza despite news of ceasefire," from the Ma'an News Agency (thanks to Sr. Soph):

Gaza – Ma'an – Palestinian military groups continued to launch homemade projectiles and mortar shells into Israel from the Gaza Strip despite news that the factions had agreed during talks in Egypt on a ceasefire.

The military wing of Islamic Jihad, the Al-Quds Brigades, and the military wing of the Popular Resistance Committees, the An-Nasser Salah Addin Brigades, said that their fighters fired barrages of projectiles and mortars at the Israeli cities of Sderot and Ashkelon in the western Negev.

It appears that Palestinian factions are awaiting for the official announcement of a ceasefire before holding their fire....

Yeah, sure, that's it.

If the Jews would only move out of Israel there would be peace...un-huh...right.

Golda Meir captured it decades ago with her observation that has become a truism: "there will not be peace until they love their children more than they hate our children."

Outrage: DNC Ad Shows U.S. Soldiers Being Blown Up

Monday, April 28, 2008 9:37 PM

By: Jim Meyers 

The Democratic National Committee has sparked outrage among veterans and others across the internet by running an anti-John McCain ad that shows U.S. soldiers being blown up.

After the new ad’s voice-over castigated McCain for suggesting that the United States may stay in Iraq for “maybe 100” years, the footage becomes shocking.

The DNC ad then shows an explosive device detonating near two soldiers standing beside a palm tree. The two soldiers disappear in an explosive fireball. The video also shows images of burning vehicles.

You can see the DNC ad Click Here Now

The footage appears similar to film taken by jihadists who videotape IED explosions that kill American combat troops. The jihadists place the video on the internet to tout their "kill Americans" campaign success. The Army estimates that more than 6,500 jihadist Web sites promote violence against America and American troops.

Many U.S. media outlets have refused to air excerpts from such videos for several reasons - including out of respect of the servicemen and women depicted in the videos.

The DNC apparently does not agree. Calls to the DNC for comment and for information about the footage went unreturned.

The Republican National Committee harshly criticized the ad, stating: “It is becoming clear that [DNC Chairman] Howard Dean and the Democratic National Committee will say and do anything to defeat John McCain.” The RNC demanded that the ad be stopped.

The McCain campaign and the RNC contend that the Democrats have been distorting McCain’s comment that the United States may remain in Iraq for "maybe 100” years. Such critics say McCain’s comments have been taken out of context.

The Associated Press reported that he actually went on to say:

“As long as Americans are not being injured or harmed or wounded or killed, it's fine with me, and I hope it would be fine with you, if we maintain a presence in a very volatile part of the world where al-Qaida is training, recruiting, equipping and motivating people every single day."

Republicans also allege that the DNC violates federal election law by coordinating its ad campaign with the Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton campaigns.

The RNC counsel has sent letters to the heads of NBC, CNN, and MSNBC demanding the ad be pulled.

Escape From a Brooklyn Mosque

Terrorism Bos Smith
April 29, 2008

Don’t snap a photo of the Masjid At-Taqwa in the Bedford-Stuyvesant section of Brooklyn unless you want to be hauled away by a group of angry Muslims in Islamic attire to the basement of the facility where a group of twenty “security guards” in karate suits will interrogate you.

This might sound preposterous. But it happened on Saturday, April 24, at 3:00 in the afternoon.

Ali Kareem, the head of security for Siraj Wahaj’s mosque, conducted the grilling. A small, muscular man with a wispy black beard that has been dyed red with henna, Kareem demanded to know the reason why a trio of kafirs had dared to photograph the building on a public street without securing his permission.

He further insisted on securing our identities and obtaining our motives for such a violation of Islamic space.

Being surrounded by a group of militant guards in a mosque basement from which there is no means of escape is not a comforting place to be for a Wall Street financier.

We tried to explain that we found the neighborhood with its halal meat vendors and food stores; Islamic dress shops, featuring the latest styles in burqas and hijabs; Muslim souvenir outlets, replete with bumper stickers stating “Don’t Be Caught Dead Without Islam”; and Middle Eastern restaurants offering a variety of goat dishes to be rather quaint and interesting.

This explanation was not sufficient.

Kareem was impatient and did not want a detailed explanation of the reason for our excursion (simple sight-seeing) or a graphic account of the sights we had seen and photographed.

“I ask the questions here,” he said, “and you provide the answers.”

Don't believe this can happen here? Read the rest of the story at New Media Journal.

Thousands Honor Matt Maupin

Hat Tip to Blackfive and Victory Caucus

Posted By Laughing_Wolf

Soldier's Mom wrote me this weekend about the funeral of SSG Matt Maupin, letting me know that more than 4,000 people filled the Great American Ball Park in Cincinnati for his funeral. He is home, he is honored, and his family knows that people truly care about him and -- most of all -- about them.

WLWT has a story and video here, the Enquirer an article here (and actually notes why the missing are important) and coverage of the funeral here, and WCPO has stories here.

Godspeed Matt. May the light shine down on your family, and they are blessed to know how many people truly care.


"....fair winds and a following sea" SSG Maupin. Thank God for you and those like you.

What Islam Isn't

By Dr. Peter Hammond
FrontPageMagazine.com | Monday, April 21, 2008

The following is adapted from Dr. Peter Hammond's book: Slavery, Terrorism and Islam: The Historical Roots and Contemporary Threat:

Islam is not a religion nor is it a cult. It is a complete system.

Islam has religious, legal, political, economic and military components. The religious component is a beard for all the other components.

Islamization occurs when there are sufficient Muslims in a country to agitate for their so-called 'religious rights.'

When politically correct and culturally diverse societies agree to 'the reasonable' Muslim demands for their 'religious rights,' they also get the other components under the table. Here's how it works (percentages source CIA: The World Fact Book (2007)).

As long as the Muslim population remains around 1% of any given country they will be regarded as a peace-loving minority and not as a threat to anyone. In fact, they may be featured in articles and films, stereotyped for their colorful uniqueness:

United States -- Muslim 1.0%
Australia -- Muslim 1.5%
Canada -- Muslim 1.9%
China -- Muslim 1%-2%
Italy -- Muslim 1.5%
Norway -- Muslim 1.8%

At 2% and 3% they begin to proselytize from other ethnic minorities and disaffected groups with major recruiting from the jails and among street gangs:

Denmark -- Muslim 2%
Germany -- Muslim 3.7%
United Kingdom -- Muslim 2.7%
Spain -- Muslim 4%
Thailand -- Muslim 4.6%

From 5% on they exercise an inordinate influence in proportion to their percentage of the population.

They will push for the introduction of halal (clean by Islamic standards) food, thereby securing food preparation jobs for Muslims. They will increase pressure on supermarket chains to feature it on their shelves -- along with threats for failure to comply. ( United States ).

France -- Muslim 8%
Philippines -- Muslim 5%
Sweden -- Muslim 5%
Switzerland -- Muslim 4.3%
The Netherlands -- Muslim 5.5%
Trinidad &Tobago -- Muslim 5.8%

At this point, they will work to get the ruling government to allow them to rule themselves under Sharia, the Islamic Law. The ultimate goal of Islam is not to convert the world but to establish Sharia law over the entire world.

When Muslims reach 10% of the population, they will increase lawlessness as a means of complaint about their conditions ( Paris --car-burnings). Any non-Muslim action that offends Islam will result in uprisings and threats ( Amsterdam - Mohammed cartoons).

Guyana -- Muslim 10%
India -- Muslim 13.4%
Israel -- Muslim 16%
Kenya -- Muslim 10%
Russia -- Muslim 10-15%

After reaching 20% expect hair-trigger rioting, jihad militia formations, sporadic killings and church and synagogue burning:
Ethiopia -- Muslim 32.8%

At 40% you will find widespread massacres, chronic terror attacks and ongoing militia warfare:

Bosnia -- Muslim 40%
Chad -- Muslim 53.1%
Lebanon -- Muslim 59.7%

From 60% you may expect unfettered persecution of non-believers and other religions, sporadic ethnic cleansing (genocide), use of Sharia Law as a weapon and Jizya, the tax placed on infidels:

Albania -- Muslim 70%
Malaysia -- Muslim 60.4%
Qatar -- Muslim 77.5%
Sudan -- Muslim 70%

After 80% expect State run ethnic cleansing and genocide:

Bangladesh -- Muslim 83%
Egypt -- Muslim 90%
Gaza -- Muslim 98.7%
Indonesia -- Muslim 86.1%
Iran -- Muslim 98%
Iraq -- Muslim 97%
Jordan -- Muslim 92%
Morocco -- Muslim 98.7%
Pakistan -- Muslim 97%
Palestine -- Muslim 99%
Syria -- Muslim 90%
Tajikistan -- Muslim 90%
Turkey -- Muslim 99.8%
United Arab Emirates -- Muslim 96%

100% will usher in the peace of 'Dar-es-Salaam' -- the Islamic House of Peace -- there's supposed to be peace because everybody is a Muslim:

Afghanistan -- Muslim 100%
Saudi Arabia -- Muslim 100%
Somalia -- Muslim 100%
Yemen -- Muslim 99.9%

Of course, that's not the case. To satisfy their blood lust, Muslims then start killing each other for a variety of reasons.

"Before I was nine I had learned the basic canon of Arab life. It was me against my brother; me and my brother against our father; my family against my cousins and the clan; the clan against the tribe; and the tribe against the world and all of us against the infidel." – Leon Uris, 'The Haj'

It is good to remember that in many, many countries, such as France, the Muslim populations are centered around ghettos based on their ethnicity. Muslims do not integrate into the community at large. Therefore, they exercise more power than their national average would indicate.

Last Day To Save Christian Radio?
FCC rule change seen as threat to licenses of religious stations

Posted: April 28, 2008
12:00 am Eastern

© 2008 WorldNetDaily

WASHINGTON – Today is the last day for public comments on a proposed Federal Communications Commission rule change some say would threaten the licenses of Christian radio stations from coast to coast.

At issue is a proposal that would require every radio station to take programming advice from community advisory boards representative of the area's population.

Advocates of Christian programming say that would require Christian broadcasters to seek advice from non-Christians and even those opposed to the Christian message. Some radio stations fear organized groups of atheists, for instance, could demand representation on the new FCC-mandated advisory boards that would factor into licensing decisions.

"While the FCC is considering these rule changes, at the moment nothing is 'set in stone' as they await public comment," explains the Christian Air 1 Radio Network. "If any of these changes were adopted, there would be significant impact on our ability to minister to you and your community. These rules would not only affect our stations but also thousands of stations around the country."

In addition to the requirement for advisory boards, the new regulations would also mandate radio stations produce every three months reports on how much programming of various types has been broadcast, who produced it and how it reflects the interests of the community – including segments who do not approve of or share Christian values.

The National Association of Broadcasters, which opposes the rule change, offers an online form for making comments on the FCC rule change – but the deadline is today. All comments must be filed under the assigned docket number No. 04-233, meaning that number must be included in all communications about the proposed rule change to be considered by the FCC.

The NAB is advising its member stations to tell the FCC why the rule change is counter-productive – that it would pressure broadcasters to air programming that is not necessarily commercially viable. The group also suggests the FCC rule change would mandate programming quotas.

Broadcasters don't like another element of the rule change – one that would require stations to have at least one employee on duty during all hours of operation. Breakthroughs in automated programming have made that unnecessary in recent years, so the rule change would mean more expense for some smaller-market stations.

Last week, FCC Commissioner Robert McDowell questioned the need to turn back the clock with such a rule change. In a speech before the Quello Communications Law and Policy Symposium, McDowell cited the proliferation of competing communications opportunities on the Internet, through cable television channels and other venues.

Given the media choices available, he questioned why "policymakers like us at the FCC" are dusting off decades-old regulations to impose on broadcasters.

"Why are we considering placing these proverbial albatrosses around the necks of traditional media precisely at this 'tipping point' in history when they can least afford a regulatory disadvantage vis-à-vis unregulated platforms like the Internet?" he asked.

The potential Orwellian implications of such policies are chilling, the commissioner argued.

Rev Wrong Back in the Headlines

Cross posted from Barb at Faultline USA

Contrary to media reports, Jeremiah Wright hasn’t been in self-imposed exile since Obama distanced himself from Wright’s anti-American and racist remarks. On the contrary, Wright has continued his whirlwind speaking tour across America. Friday he was interviewed by Bill Moyers of PBS, Sunday he delivered two sermons at Friendship-West Baptist Church in Dallas, where he finally received a belated award from Brite Divinity School (see previous articles below), then he flew to Detroit to address the NAACP, and this morning his gave another self-gratification speech to the National Press Club.

So what’s up with Wright?

To summarize Juan Williams’s assessment on Fox TV following Wright’s speech this morning, Wright is saying “If you are attacking me, you are attacking the Black Church.” 

Yesterday, Wright said that he was being “crucified.” Today the Black Church is being crucified. 

Williams went on to observe that Wright never explained his inflammatory statements. “It was all about ego and self-gratification for Wright. . . Wright isn’t looking out for Obama. . .It’s all about Wright and Black Theology.” Williams said that Wright “Is playing racially divisive politics. You don’t hear that from the Black Pulpit. It’s not typical.”

I watched the entire speech and the Q&A session following the speech. His speech lasted less than fifteen minutes but it was packed full of inflammatory quotes that should come back to haunt Wright as well as continue to plague Obama. Another 20-30 minutes were devoted to answering pre-screened questions.

Here’s the gist of the speech:

Wright said that he will be opening a two day symposium of Black Theologians, scholars, and social workers etc., and said that Obama has called for a dialog on the Black Church. He opened his speech by referring to the media’s playing of the “out of context” sound bites saying, “It’s not an attack on Jeremiah Wright. It is an attack on the Black Church.”

Then Wright went into a brief history of the Black Church in America and attempted to distinguish his “Prophetic Theology of the Black Church” from James Cones’ “Black Liberation Theology.” What are the differences? Basically none except that Wright’s theology goes beyond “white supremacy” to the prophets of the Old Testament. He hinges his theology on the 61st chapter of Isaiah and on Luke 4.

According to Wright, his theology is a theology of liberation, transformation, and “ultimately, reconciliation.” Why did he insert the word “ultimately”? According to Wright, the white church in Europe and North America is a “theology of white supremacy.”

Here’s a summary of Wright’s speech concerning what whites have to do in order to become reconciled to the Black church in America.

God’s desire is for a radical change in a social order that has gone astray. God’s desire is for a radical transformation. This is the heart of Liberation Theology. What must we do in order to become reconciled? “Children of God repenting for past sins against one another.”

Apparently, Wright thinks whites have a long, long way to go before they deserve to be reconciled to the Black Church.

I wonder what kind of additional repentance Wright has in store for Whites? Hint, go listen to Obama’s new pastor’s sermons and, can you spell Reparations and residtribution???

With regard to the “white supremacy” church in America, Wright quoted Dr. William Augustus Jones to explain how one’s theology determines one’s sociology. Really? Can we get permission from Wright to apply that same standard to Obama???

I wonder if Wright considered that if that’s truly the case, then why shouldn’t all Americans have a right to ask Obama to explain his own theology in terms of comparison and contrast to Trinity United Church of Christ and Jeremiah Wright?

The Q&A session offered some hard questions that Wright attempted to turn to his favor.

When asked about the “chickens coming home to roost” post 9/11 sermon he responded:

“Have you heard the whole sermon? (He waits for a response) Well that nullifies that question.” Then Wright went on to say that (1) “I was quoting the ambassador of Iraq,” (2) What Wright said “comes from the Bible”, and (3) “You cannot do terrorism against other people and not expect it to come back on you.”

Asked if he was patriotic and loved Aemrica, Wright said:

“I served six years in the military. Does that make me patriotic?” Then he waved a flimsy salute.

Hummm. Looks like he doesn’t want to give a direct answer on that one.

Wright was asked about his relationship with Louis Farrakhan, the acting head of the Nation of Islam. Wright implied that he had been hurt by his relationship with Farrakhan because Farrakhan has once called Zionism a “gutter religion.” But Wright went on to say, “Farrakhan and I don’t agree on everything. Farrakhan is one of the most important voices in the 20th and 21st centuries. I won’t put down Farrakhan any more than (Nelson) Mandela would put down Castro.”

Asked about Sen. Obama’s disavowal of him, Wright reminded the audience that Obama had not disavowed him just “distanced himself from me because he is a politician.” Wright said that he was downstairs praying with Obama before Obama went upstairs to talk. What does this imply?

When asked about his own motivation, Wright said, “If Obama had not said what he said he would never get elected.” Then Wright added, “I’m not running for office . . .(then with a kidding grin) I’m hoping to be V.P.” As a matter of fact, he said that again at the end of his speech. Interesting, and I bet he’s serious.

Asked about what evil our government is capable of, he said, that based on the Tuskegee experiment, “I believe our government is capable of anything.”

Asked if he likened Israeli policies to apartheid, he denied saying that and said that Israel has a right to exist but needs to sit down and work out a solution – reconciliation.

Wright refused to comment about Bill Clinton and said that “I came to talk about the church not politics.” Funny, he could have fooled me.

Wright was asked how the Black and White church could reconcile. He said that many have already “taken great steps to do so. To reconcile, whites must understand the injustice that was done.”

He would start educating at the earliest levels by using “Infusion curriculum” – telling the true story.

When asked if Islam is the way to salvation, Wright said, “Jesus said, ‘Other sheep have I not of this fold.’”

So what’s Obama to do?

Wright, like a dirty old piece of gum, is permanently stuck to Obama’s shoe. Obama can’t shake him. Granted, Obama hasn’t tried very hard to convince most voters that he’s all that upset with Wright, but why should he? If Obama were to come out even stronger against Wright or his own Black Liberation church, he’d lose the votes of his primary supporters on the left.

Some speculating yesterday on the news had the Obama camp actually redirecting Wright in an attempt to rehabilitate his image. The idea is that if Obama can stop attacks on Wright, he can win the blue collar white votes he badly needs. The only way to do that is to turn this thing on his head. Apparently, the far left is taking the ball and running with it.

Here’s the new spin. To question Wright or Obama is tantamount to white racism!

Court Upholds Indiana Voter ID Law

WASHINGTON (AP) -- The Supreme Court has ruled that states can require voters to produce photo identification without violating their constitutional rights. The decision validates Republican-inspired voter ID laws.

The court vote 6-3 to uphold Indiana's strict photo ID requirement. Democrats and civil rights groups say the law would deter poor, older and minority voters from casting ballots.

I wanted to get this up quickly for a couple of reasons. 1) It's an Indiana case, and 2) it's a very important victory. I will write more in depth later on but for now, this is very good news! - CP

The Disgrace of Jimmy Carter

Carters recent trip to the Middle East should raise some very pointed questions about his allegiance to the United States. Those who support him will claim he was on a mission of peace, while those of us who would prefer Mr. Carter return to his peanut farm and stay there see it much differently.

The problem is not so much the fact that Carter went to Syria to meet with Khaled Mashaal. The problem is the way in which he went about it.

From The Wall Street Journal, by Bernard-Henri Levy;

“The problem is the spectacular and useless embrace he exchanged with the senior Hamas dignitary, Nasser Shaer, in Ramallah.”

“The problem is the wreath he laid piously at the grave of Yasser Arafat, who, as Mr. Carter knows better than anyone else, was a real obstacle to peace.”

“It is that in Cairo, if we are to believe another Hamas leader, Mahmoud Zahar, whose statement has so far not been denied, Mr. Carter apparently described Hamas as a "national liberation movement" – this party which has made a cult of death, a mythology of blood and race, and an anti-Semitism along the lines of the Protocols of the Elders of Zion into the linchpin of its ideology.”

“The problem is also the formidable nose thumbing he got from Hamas's exiled leader, Khaled Mashaal, who, at the very moment he was receiving Mr. Carter, also triggered the first car bombing in several months in Keren Shalom on the Gaza strip – and that this event elicited from poor Mr. Carter, all tangled up in his small-time mediator calculations, not one disapproving or empathetic word.”

“The former president, it will be recalled, is an old hand at this sort of thing.”

Read the entire article here.

While Carter condemns the Israeli’s, his beloved Hamas continues with their terrorist behavior. Perhaps they failed to read the memo on his mission of peace;

Kassam rocket lands next to Israeli school in Sderot

Hamas disrupts fuel supply to Gaza

If it wasn't such a serious issue, it could be quite funny to read that, not long after spending hours with former President Carter talking about peace, Hamas leader Khaled Mashaal declared in an interview on Al-Jazeera television that for his group, any cease-fire with Israel was just "a tactic in conducting the struggle... [ More ]

I won’t say I told you so…but I did tell you so… Where have all the billions of dollars in aid gone…gone to terrorists every one. Read the story you aren’t likely to see in the mainstream media here.

But you know it’s all Israel’s fault….yeah…un-huh….sure it is.

Analyze This: The danger of a Hamas 'tahadiya' becoming a Palestinian 'hafuga'

Jimmy….Mr. Carter…please do us all a favor and just say no to Hamas. Failing that then I ask with all due respect stay home, perhaps then people won’t demand your passport be revoked and the millions of taxpayer dollars for the Carter Center won’t be removed.

The Two Kinds of Dhimmis

By Jamie Glazov
FrontPageMagazine.com | Wednesday, April 23, 2008

Frontpage Interview’s guest today is Bill Warner, the director of the Center for the Study of Political Islam (CSPI) and spokesman for PoliticalIslam.com.

Read the interview here.

Muslim Supremacy, Part II

Please review Part I here.

Allah does not love unbelievers, but intensely hates them and his loathing of unbelievers can not help but affect Muslim attitudes toward non-believers. Muslim superiority is confirmed by the Qur’an rewarding them with the greatest of earthly comforts while people outside the brotherhood are condemned to suffer the most horrible of torments. One example is Qur’an chapter 56. Note: there are 96 short verses in this Sura.

Allah deliberately puts obstacles in the path of unbelievers preventing them from accepting the “truth” (according to Allah). Islamic supremacy once again rears its ugly head; If We had so willed, We could certainly have brought every soul its true guidance Qur’an 32:13. Instead Allah puts a veil over the hearts and ears of unbelievers; Verily We have set veils over their hearts lest they should understand this, and over their ears, deafness, if thou callest them to guidance, even then will they never accept guidance. Qur’an [Yusuf ali] 18:57 – See also Qur’an 17:46 & 45:23.

To insure unbelievers are prevented from accepting belief in Allah, he uses chains and barriers for this purpose; Certainly the word has proved true of most of them, so they do not believe. Surely We have placed chains on their necks, and these reach up to their chins, so they have their heads raised aloft. And We have made before them a barrier and a barrier behind them, then We have covered them over so that they do not see. And it is alike to them whether you warn them or warn them not: they do not believe. Qur’an [Shakir] 36:7-10 and fills the non-believers heart with doubt; No soul can believe, except by the will of Allah, and He will place doubt (or obscurity) on those who will not understand, Quran [Yusuf ali] 10:100

The Qur’an goes on to state that Allah causes unbelievers to commit the sin that he will later punish them for. Not knowing the “truth” condemns the non-believer to Hell alone so the previous statement is an insurance that non-believers are doomed. An arrogant Allah; And if Allah please He would certainly make you a single nation, but He causes to err whom He pleases and guides whom He pleases; and most certainly you will be questioned as to what you did, Qur’an [Shakir] 16:93

Does Allah love you? NO, unless you are a believer and accepted in the brotherhood, apparently. and whomsoever Allah causes to err, you shall not find a way for him. Qur’an [Shakir] 4:143; …. and Allah sendeth him astray purposely, and sealeth up his hearing and his heart, and setteth on his sight a covering? Then who will lead him after Allah (hath condemned him)? Will ye not then heed? Qur’an [Pickthal] 45:23.

Allah sends demons ( his angels perhaps?) to cause unbelievers to commit further bad deeds so that he can later hold that against them; See thou not that We have set the Evil Ones on against the unbelievers, to incite them with fury? Qur’an [Yusuf ali] 19:83.

Allah deceives unbelievers into believing they are dooing good deeds, when, in fact they are not ( according to Allah ). A little more insurance to your sentence of an eternity in the torments of Hell; As to those who do not believe in the hereafter, We have surely made their deeds fair-seeming to them, but they blindly wander on. Qur’an [Shakir] 27:4 See also 39:23, 6:39, 35:8, 13:27 & 14:4.

Isn’t he a wonderful benevolent god? Allah is a deciever, who will even go so far as to use Satan to help him fool unbelievers into thinking they are doing good; On the contrary their hearts became hardened, and Satan made their (sinful) acts seem alluring to them. Qur’an [Yusuf ali] 6:43. Perhaps Allah doesn’t have to go far to find Satan and only has to look at himself for that.

Allah will be gloating at the joke he played on non-believers when they claim to have done what they thought was right. He will gladly send you to Hell despite your protests; Then would they offer submission (with the pretence), "We did no evil (knowingly)." (The angels will reply), "Nay, but verily Allah knows all that ye did; "So enter the gates of Hell, to dwell therein. Thus evil indeed is the abode of the arrogant. Qur’an [Yusuf ali]16:28-29

Christians will surely understand the distinction between Allah and the God of Abraham.

John 3:16; For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have everlasting life.

Quite a contrast here and who is calling who arrogant? Allah laughs at His deception while the God of Abraham offers salvation to all who would accept the Son.

Either you have the Son or you have nothing.

Allah gives us Muhammad and hates non-Muslims to the point that he will prevent them from knowing the “truth”, causes them to err, and then condemns them to eternal torture for their unbelief and misdeeds. No faithful Muslim can ever love a non-believer even if it is a family member; Thou wilt not find any people who believe in Allah and the Last Day, loving those who resist Allah and His Messenger, even though they were their fathers or their sons, or their brothers, or their kindred. Qur’an [Yusuf ali] 58:22

Muslims are warned nine times in the Qur’an not to befriend unbelievers. Doing so could put the Muslim in the same class as unbelievers.

O ye who believe! Take not for friends unbelievers rather than believers: Do ye wish to offer Allah an open proof against yourselves? Qur’an [Yusuf ali] 4:144

O ye who believe! Take not the Jews and the Christians for friends. They are friends one to another. He among you who taketh them for friends is (one) of them. Lo! Allah guideth not wrongdoing folk. Qur’an [Pickthal] 5:51

Muhammad states unbelievers have only evil intentions for Muslims. They harbor corruption even though they appear harmless and friendly; O ye who believe! Take not into your intimacy those outside your ranks: They will not fail to corrupt you. They only desire your ruin: Rank hatred has already appeared from their mouths: What their hearts conceal is far worse. We have made plain to you the Signs, if ye have wisdom. Qur’an [Yusuf ali] 3:118

The Misbeliever is a helper (of Evil), against his own Lord! Qur’an [Yusuf ali] 25:55

Muslims must fight non-Muslims; O ye who believe! Fight those of the disbelievers who are near to you, and let them find harshness in you, and know that Allah is with those who keep their duty. Qur’an [Pickthal] 9:123 and they will spend eternity mocking the suffering of non-Muslims; And the dwellers of the garden will call out to the inmates of the fire: Surely we have found what our Lord promised us to be true; have you too found what your Lord promised to be true? They will say: Yes. Then a crier will cry out among them that the curse of Allah is on the unjust. Qur’an [Shakir] 7:44 – Muhammad personally mocked his dead enemies following the Battle of Badr (Ibn Ishaq, page 454)

Ah yes so much for peace and love from Muslims.

The so called “religion of peace” presents the curse of Allah on other religions, including Buddhists in Thailand, Jews in Israel, Christians in the Indonesia, Hindus in India.

Islam is at war with every other religion on earth yet the other religions are not at war with each other. Why is that?

The Qur’an is specific in its condemnation of other religions and the hatred Allah has for their people.

Muslims are prone to violent protest with the slightest insult to Islam or Muhammad but the Qur’an has no problem with insulting and condemning other religions.

Here are a few examples; The Jews call Ezra(‘Uzair) a son of Allah, and the Christians call Christ the son of Allah. That is a saying from their mouth; (in this) they but imitate what the unbelievers of old used to say. Allah's curse be on them: how they are deluded away from the Truth! Qur’an [Yusuf ali] 9:30. See also Bukhari 8:427, one of the last things Muhammad ever said on his deathbed was "May Allah curse the Jews and Christians.” See also verse 428.

The Qur’an is specific about Christians, Jews, Polytheists (Hindus) and atheists:

Christians are blasphemers Qur’an 5:17, 5:73 who have invented a lie about Allah Qur’an 10:68-69. Inventing a lie about Allah is the worst of sins Qur’an 7:37, 29:68 and for this reason Christians are condemned to Hell Qur’an 10:70. Although one (early Medinan) verse seems to say that righteous Christians will go to heaven, this is abrogated by later verses that make it very clear that Christians must cease being Christian (ie. reject the Trinity) or suffer eternal torment for their beliefs Qur’an 5:72-73.

Jews are also cursed by Allah Qur’an 5:13, in one of His final pronouncements. The Qur’an goes on to assure Muslims that Jews are wicked 4:160-162 – so wicked, in fact, that they have somhow managed to do the impossible 18:27 and alter the word of Allah 2:75. Jews are “fond of lies” and “devour the forbidden” 5:42.

The Qur’an assures believers that Jews and Christians have “diseased hearts” 5:52. Allah even takes credit for the enmity between then 5:14. Only Jews and Christians who submit to Islamic subjugation and pay the Jizya are protected in this world. Qur’an 9:29 & Ibn Ishaq, page 956.

Hindus are polytheists. Although Muhammad didn’t know any Hindus (and neither did Allah, apparently) the Qur’an still manages to lay the groundwork for the 1000 year ethnic cleansing campaign against the Hindu people that is estimated to have taken tens of millions of innocent lives. In Islam polytheists are worse than all other religion. Those who join idols 14:30 or false gods 11:14 to Allah also invent a lie about Him 29:17 and will burn in Hell. Even believing in other along with Allah is an unforgivable crime 4:48, 40:12.

Atheists believe in no god, which is even worse than believing in the wrong one (Muhammad and his successors had atheists put to death - Bukhari 84:57) . Merely questioning the existence of Allah is a testament to one’s arrogance and impiety Qur’an 25:21. But the arrogance of Muslims is encouraged in the Qur’an. Muhammad always answered probing questions merely by telling the inquiring party that they would go to Hell if they didn’t believe in him 36:49-64.

Muslim apostates become “perverted transgressors” Qur’an 3:82 as well as anyone who denies Allah. Qur’an 40:63.

There is no such as freedom of conscience in Islam and the penalty for apostasy is death according to Muhammad, Bukhari 52:260.

Contemporary Muslims do not desire debate, rather they want dialogue where they speak while you listen. The Qur’an speaks of jihad instead: Listen not to the unbelievers, but strive (Jihad) against them with the utmost strenuousness, with the (Qur’an). Qur’an [Yusuf ali] 25:52

Why would Muslims desire to hear anything a non-Muslim has to say since Allah has already condemned them to Hell? As for the Disbelievers, Whether thou warn them or thou warn them not it is all one for them; they believe not. Allah hath sealed their hearing and their hearts, and on their eyes there is a covering. Theirs will be an awful doom Qur’an [Pickthal] 2:6-7

An obvious question would be why would Allah even create infidels (particularly Jews and Christians) if their ultimate destination is Hell? Of course Muhammad has an answer for that (Sahih Muslim, book 37 verse: 6666). He has an answer for everything if you believe what he says.

Allah fights against the unbelievers Qur’an 9:30, so why should Muslims not fight in his cause, Qur’an 4:76?

Against them make ready your strength to the utmost of your power, including steeds of war, to strike terror into (the hearts of) the enemies of Allah and your enemies and others besides, whom ye may not know Qur’an [Yusuf ali] 8:60

Strive hard (Jihad) against the Unbelievers and the Hypocrites, and be firm against them. Their abode is Hell,- an evil refuge (indeed). Qur’an [Yusuf ali] 66:9. See also 9:73

Unbelievers should be punished in this life as Muslims expect great rewards in the afterlife as well as this life. Qur’an 4:134, He whom Allah sendeth astray, for him there is no guide. For them is a penalty in the life of this world, but harder, truly, is the penalty of the Hereafter… Qur’an [Pickthal] 13:33:34

All beings in heaven and on earth shall bow to Allah, whether willingly or by force; And unto Allah falleth prostrate whosoever is in the heavens and the earth, willingly or unwillingly Qur’an [Pickthal] 13:15

Those who resist Allah and His Messenger will be among those most humiliated. Qur’an [Yusuf ali] 58:20 . (The context for this verse is the eviction of the Jewish Medinan tribes and the confiscation of their wealth, land, and children by Muhammad).

Non- Muslims should be fought until no other religion exists except Islam; And fight them until persecution is no more, and religion is all for Allah Qur’an [Pickthal] 8:39 – “Persecution” in this context means resistance to Islam – defined in the prior verse as an unwillingness to believe (see also verse 38). This passage was “revealed” following a battle that Muhammad deliberately provoked. Qur’an, verse 2:193 essentially says that same thing and was also “revealed” at a time when the Muslims were not under physical attack.

Unbelievers have no rights and must be pressured by Muslims, Qur’an 13:41 - See also 21:44 and 33:27, See also Bukhari 53:392 and are granted authority and power over other people, Qur’an 24:55.

Muslims are given instructions in how to deal with infidels by Allah; Remember thy Lord inspired the angels (with the message): "I am with you: give firmness to the Believers: I will instill terror into the hearts of the Unbelievers: smite ye above their necks and smite all their finger-tips off them." This because they contended against Allah and His Messenger: If any contend against Allah and His Messenger, Allah is strict in punishment. Qur’an [Yusuf ali] 8:12-13

Pelosi: Misquote or Lie - You Decide

Original tip for this came from "Rush In a Hurry".

From Rush's Stack of Stuff Quick Hits Page:

She Didn't "Misquote;" She Lied: Pelosi Made Up Earth Day Bible Quote


Biblical Scholars Challenge Pelosi's 'Scripture' Quote

By Pete Winn
CNSNews.com Senior Staff Writer
April 23, 2008

(CNSNews.com) - House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) is fond of quoting a particular passage of Scripture. The quote, however, does not appear in the Bible and is "fictional," according to biblical scholars.

In her April 22 Earth Day news release, Pelosi said, "The Bible tells us in the Old Testament, 'To minister to the needs of God's creation is an act of worship. To ignore those needs is to dishonor the God who made us.' On this Earth Day, and every day, let us pledge to our children, and our children's children, that they will have clean air to breathe, clean water to drink, and the opportunity to experience the wonders of nature."

Cybercast News Service
 repeatedly queried the speaker's office for two days to determine where the alleged Bible quote is found. Thus far, no one has responded.

Distinguished biblical scholars, however, cast doubt on the existence of the passage.

John J. Collins, the Holmes professor of Old Testament criticism and interpretation at Yale Divinity School, said he is totally unfamiliar with Pelosi's quotation.

"(It's) not one that I recognize," Collins told 
Cybercast News Service. "I assume that she means this is a paraphrase. But it wouldn't be a close paraphrase to anything I know of."

Claude Mariottini, a professor of Old Testament at Northern Baptist Theological Seminary, told 
Cybercast News Service the passage not only doesn't exist - it's "fictional."

"It is not in the Bible," Mariottini said. "There is nothing that even approximates that."

Other scholars agree that nothing remotely resembling it can be found in any version of the Scriptures - Old Testament or New Testament. 

"The quote does not exist in the Old Testament, neither in the New Testament," said the Rev. Andreas Hock, a doctor of Scripture who teaches in the Roman Catholic archdiocese of Denver's St. John Vianney Seminary.

"Even in pieces or bits, (it) cannot be found in the Old Testament," he added. 

Interestingly, Pelosi has mentioned the quote before, Mariottini noted. 

"In truth, (she) has used this 'passage' in many different ways, and all of those usages have nothing to do with the Bible whatsoever," he said. 

Cybercast News Service has learned that Pelosi has repeatedly used the quote: 

-- In December 2005, in a Christmas message to the U.S. House of Representatives, Pelosi said: "Mr. Speaker, as we leave for this Christmas recess, let us say, 'God bless you' to the American people by voting against this Republican budget and statement of injustice and immorality, and let us not let the special interest goose get fat at the expense of America's children.

"The gentleman from Washington [state], Mr. McDermott, quoted the prophet Isaiah. And as the Bible teaches us, to minister to the needs of God's creation is an act of worship, to ignore those needs is to dishonor the God who made us. Let us vote no on this budget as an act of worship and for America's children."

-- On Feb. 8, 2007, in remarks before the U.S. House Science and Technology Committee, when it held hearings on global warming, she used the same quote, verbatim, as in her Earth Day release.

-- On April 6, 2007, in congressional remarks before the Easter recess: "In this Holy Week, we are reminded of these words in the Old Testament: 'To minister to the needs of God's creation is an act of worship. To ignore those needs is to dishonor the God who made us.' We must move quickly to honor God's creation by reducing greenhouse gas pollution in the United States and around the world."

-- On April 25, 2007, in a speech to the League of Conservation Voters in Washington, D.C.: "We are now charging ahead to tackle one of humanity's greatest challenges yet - global warming. We will do this because we hold our children's future in our hands - not our grandchildren, or great-grandchildren, but our own children. "As it says in the Old Testament, 'To minister to the needs of God's creation is an act of worship. To ignore those needs is to dishonor the God who made us.'" 

-- On Oct. 22, 2007, in a television interview with PBS host Tavis Smiley, she used it in discussion of her roots, attributing the quote to the book of Isaiah: "I'm raised in a family in Baltimore, Maryland, my father was the mayor. He was in Congress when I was born. And we were devoutly Catholic, very patriotic. We love America. Devoutly Catholic, deeply patriotic, proud of our Italian American heritage, and in our case, staunchly Democratic. 

"And that faith was related to our Democratic values. That is to say, the gospel of Matthew: 'When I was hungry, you gave me to eat.' You know, the least of our brethren. So that's an inspiration in the New Testament. In the Old Testament, Isaiah says, 'To minister to the needs of God's creation is an act of worship. To ignore those needs is to dishonor the god who made us.'" 

Mis-remembered? Mis-paraphrased? 

Is Pelosi's alleged quote merely an attempt to express a biblical principle about man's need to care for the environment? The scholars differed slightly on that question, but none believe the case for environmentalism comes directly form Scripture, as Pelosi indicated. 

Eric Jenislawski, a professor at Virginia's Christendom College, said that the Bible teaches in Genesis that man was placed on earth "to till it and keep it" (Genesis 2:15). But just a few verses earlier, he pointed out, God also commanded man "to fill the earth and subdue it" (Genesis 1:28).

"Responsible use of the Old Testament cannot divorce the biblical notion of stewardship (that man is obligated to care for God's creation) from the equally important biblical view that the entire natural world was created for man, for him to subdue it and to reign over it," Jenislawski said. 

"Environmentalists who make man subservient to the natural world actually invert the biblical view of man's relationship to the earth," he said.

Collins agreed.

"You can interpret Genesis, Chapter One, in various ways, but I think this would be going well beyond the text," said Collins. 

Mark Goodwin, an associate professor of theology at the University of Dallas, said Pelosi's quote only reflects a partial Scriptural truth, at best. 

"'To minister to the needs of creation is an act of worship' doesn't sound right to my ears," Goodwin said. "To minister to the needs of creation'- yes, but not as an act of worship. I'm not sure what she meant by that, and if I were there, I would have raised my hand and asked her to clarify that."

Westminster Theological Seminary professor Peter Enns told 
Cybercast News Service that there is nothing in the Bible even approaching a proof-text for Earth Day. 

"As wise an idea as it might be to be concerned about the environment, I think to find a specific biblical anchor in the Old Testament might be asking things of the Bible it's just not prepared to deliver," Enns said. 

"To say that humanity (is the steward) of creation is not so much - in the ancient world -a statement that the goodness of creation has to be protected, but more a statement in the Bible of the supremacy of humanity as the pinnacle of creation," he added.

Mariottini, meanwhile, said he doesn't think Pelosi is either mis-remembering or mis-paraphrasing. 

"People try to use the Bible to give authority to what they are trying to say," he said. "(This) is one of those texts that you fabricate in order to support what you want to say.

Latest on Indy Bank Teller Shooting

Bank teller's unborn twins died

Tragic developments in the shooting of a bank teller. Both of Katherin Shuffield's unborn twins have died.

Katherin Shuffield was five months pregnant when a bank robber shot her in the stomach during a robbery Tuesday morning at the Huntington Bank on 21st and Post.

24-Hour News 8's Mary McDermott was with the babies' grandmother when she learned the sad news. Although the bullet missed the twins, surgeons had to remove a section of Shuffield's intestine and her appendix. Shuffield first lost one of her babies then the other.

Greta Wagers was too shaken to talk about the tragedy. A good friend spoke for her.

Judy Bullock said, "She's really takin' it bad. And the only reason why I'm over here is to stick beside the family and my friend Greta."

Katherin's husband Jason released a statement:

"On behalf of our family, I would like to thank everyone for their thoughts, prayers and concerns regarding Katherin's condition. While Katherin remains in critical but stable condition, we are sad to announce that our twin babies died late Thursday night. Katherin's recovery is our top priority and she continues to receive the best possible care. Her comfort has been aided by her mother, a native of Peru, South America, who was granted a tourist visa from the U.S. Embassy to help us during this very difficult time. We will update the media at a later date and ask for privacy as we recover.

We appreciate the community's collaboration with law enforcement as they continue to investigate this case, and encourage anyone with relevant information to come forward."

Marion County Prosecutor news conference:

"Clearly when we have the shooter, we will be looking at what the appropriate charges will be based upon the death of these two babies," said Marion County Deputy Prosecutor David Wyser.

Wyser said it won't be manslaughter because Katherin Shuffield was only five months pregnant and her fetuses wouldn't have been considered viable under Indiana law.

Legally in Indiana, fetuses aren't considered able to survive outside the womb until the seventh month of pregnancy. Feticide is one potential charge in this case.

"This isn't something we're just going to jump into. We have to fully analyze it, investigate it and make sure that we understand all the facts before we make a charging decision," said Wyser.

Police release four men arrested in bank shooting

Three of the men arrested in connection with the robbery walked free and a fourth man now faces charges for lying to police.

The man told police on Wednesday he knew everything about the robbery and was in one of the cars headed to the bank. He's no longer charged with conspiracy, instead he's charged with lying.

According to police reports, 25-year-old Shed James told police he helped plan the Huntington Bank robbery. He also provided officers with a list of accomplices.

On Wednesday night, police arrested James and three other men. All faced preliminary charges of conspiracy to commit a bank robbery.

Police later found James' story didn't pan out. Police said James has still not explained why he lied.

Four days after the robbery and shooting, police have little to show. The gunman and as many as five accomplices remain at large. Police continue to press hard as they search for information and leads.

"We're putting the pressure on. We will continue to put pressure on those individuals who we know have violent crime histories and things of that nature," said Lt. Jeff Duhamell of the IMPD. 

The prosecutor's office admits manpower was wasted dealing with Wednesday's four arrestees but officers had to take time to verify James' story.  In the end, innocent men walked free.

"That part is what's good. We're not accusing someone of doing something they didn't do. And we have no evidence to support what they did," said Deputy Prosecutor David Wyser.

"We're far from over as far as closing this case. One, the shooter is still out there. We need any information. Anything that can help us," said Lt. Duhamell.
Police are asking for tips that will lead them to find the gunman. The suspect is described as dark-skinned, 6'1" to 6'2" and weighs around 215 pounds. He was last seen wearing a gray jacket, blue jeans, and a blue stocking cap.

Police are asking anyone with information on this crime to call Crime Stoppers at 262-TIPS. 

A fund in Katherin Shuffield's name has been set up to help the family. Donations can be made at any Huntington Bank location or mailed to the following address.
