Islamist mob parades nuns in Cairo as prisoners of war after six hours looting church school

Filed under: — Jennifer Rast @ 10:25 am

The Muslim Brotherhood needs to be destroyed. Yet, we have a weak President who wants to play nice to both sides. He considers people who burn Christian churches and torture defenseless nuns allies. He’s on the side of Islamic jihadists and always has been.

A mob marched nuns through the battle-torn streets of Cairo ‘like prisoners of war’ in the latest outrage against Egypt’s Christian minority.

Sister Manal, principal of a Franciscan school in suburban Cairo, watched for six hours as a mob looted the building, knocked the cross off the gate and replaced it with a black banner resembling the flag of Al Qaeda.

The classrooms were then burned to the ground and the women taken away, attracting a crowd of abusive onlookers.

Police told Sister Manal that the nuns had been targeted by hardline Islamists, convinced that they had given Muslim children an inappropriate education.

‘We are nuns. We rely on God and the angels to protect us,’ she said. ‘At the end, they paraded us like prisoners of war and hurled abuse at us as they led us from one alley to another without telling us where they were taking us.’

Siblings Wardah and Bedour, two Christian women employed by the school, also found themselves having to fight their way through the mob while being groped, hit and insulted by the extremists.

Al Qaeda Flag Flies High Above Christian Churches

Filed under: — Jennifer Rast @ 2:06 am

Days ago, al-Qaeda’s Egyptian leader, Ayman Zawahiri, portrayed the overthrow of Muhammad Morsi and the Brotherhood as a “Crusader” campaign led by Coptic Pope Tawadros II who, according to Zawahiri and other terrorists, is trying to create a Coptic state in Egypt.

This statement by Zawahiri is laughable, if it weren’t so sad, considering the Arab Spring and the Muslim Brotherhoods admitted goal of reestablishing the Islamic Caliphate in the region. Just like the Democrats in the United States, the Jihadists use the tactic of accusing their enemies of exactly what they are doing themselves. No wonder Islamists and Progressives get along so well.

Since then, not only are Egypt’s Christians and churches now being attacked in ways unprecedented in the modern era, but new reports indicate that al-Qaeda’s black flag has been raised on some of them, specifically St. George Church in Sohag. Considering that it was al-Qaeda linked terrorists who initiated one of the bloodiest church attacks in recent history, the 2010 Baghdad church attack where nearly 60 Christians were slaughtered (click here for graphic images), that al-Qaeda is singling out Egypt’s Christians bodes ill.

The Islamic terrorist organization’s incitements against the Copts are just the latest to emanate from Islamists—from the top of the Brotherhood leadership to the bottom of the “Muslim street”—creating something of an “open season” on Egypt’s Christians.

We all need to be praying for our fellow Christians abroad, but we should also be writing our members of Congress, demanding that this genocide be recognized and something done about it. Murder does not become acceptable when Christians are on the receiving end of the violence.

Would Muslims tolerate the Christian flag flying over mosques in the U.S.? I seriously doubt it. Our government would also be beside itself, and wouldn’t hesitate to put a stop to it. The double standard is disgusting.

Human Rights Groups Criticize Islamists for Inciting New Violence Against Egypt’s Christians

Filed under: — Jennifer Rast @ 1:54 am

My question is, why is our government saying nothing about this slaughter of Christians in Egypt? If the roles were reversed, and Muslims were being crucified in the streets, we’d send in the troops and save the Islamist murderers. Perhaps it has something to do with having an Islamist sympathizer in the White House.

Alarmed at the fresh targeting of Egyptian Christians since the military takeover, 16 human rights groups on Wednesday condemned both sides in the continuing standoff—Islamists for inciting violence against the religious minority and the state for not providing adequate protection. …

As Egyptian Muslims prepared to mark the end-of-Ramadan Eid holiday on Thursday, their Orthodox Coptic compatriots have little to celebrate.

Attacks against Christians have increased over the past month, with churches, homes and stores targeted, a Coptic priest shot dead, and several other Christians killed—including a shopkeeper in the Sinai who was kidnapped and beheaded.

Last weekend in a village called Bani Ahmed, Islamists reportedly torched at least nine homes and 24 stores owned by Christians as well as vehicles. Coptic youths demonstrated outside the Supreme Court on Monday, calling for authorities to act against the perpetrators of the sectarian violence. …

Muslim Brotherhood Crucifying Protesters in Egypt

Filed under: — Jennifer Rast @ 12:38 am

Pray for our brothers and sisters in Christ in Egypt. According to this article, Christians are among those being crucified for objecting to the new Egyptian government, and the harshest torture is reserved for them, because they don’t worship Allah. I pray as many of them as possible have been able to flee their homes and escape this brutal barbarism.

I notice Obama has little to say about the so called “Arab Spring” these days, and he hasn’t said a word about the Crucifixions taking place. Since the Muslim Brotherhood has infiltrated our government at the highest levels, and seems to be an ally of our current Resident in Chief, I suppose we shouldn’t be surprised. What kind of human can ignore these horrors out of simple political expediency? And, we’re supposed to believe Obama’s a Christian? I think not.

The Arab Spring takeover of Egypt by the Muslim Brotherhood has run amok, with reports from several different media agencies that the radical Muslims have begun crucifying opponents of newly installed President Mohammed Morsi.

Middle East media confirm that during a recent rampage, Muslim Brotherhood operatives “crucified those opposing Egyptian President Muhammad Morsi naked on trees in front of the presidential palace while abusing others.”

Raymond Ibrahim, a fellow with the Middle East Forum and the Investigative Project on Terrorism, said the crucifixions are the product of who the Middle Eastern media call “partisans.”

“Arabic media call them ‘supporters,’ ‘followers’ and ‘partisans’ of the Muslim Brotherhood,” Ibraham said.

They can’t even call them what they are! Murderers and animals!

Ibrahim also says the victims can be anyone, including Egyptian Christians.

“It’s anyone who is resisting the new government,” Ibrahim said. “In this particular case, the people attacked and crucified were secular protesters upset because of Morsi’s hostile campaign against the media, especially of Tawfik Okasha, who was constantly exposing him on his station, until Morsi shut him down.”

Ibrahim said extra brutality is reserved for Christians, but the crucifixions are because of Islamic doctrine and are required by the Quran. The time and other details about the crucifixions were not readily available.

‘Tumour’ of Israel will soon be destroyed: Ahmadinejad

Filed under: — Jennifer Rast @ 12:00 am

Ahmadinejad hasn’t been reading his Bible, but Iran’s actions could very well be the spark that fulfills the prophesies in Ezekiel. If Iran attacks, or Israel launches a preemptive attack it could end up involving the entire Middle East, and eventually the West. It would be an earth shattering event to be sure, and a life changing one for much of the planet.

It’s also interesting that Syria is on a path to destruction at the same time. Isaiah 17 includes the end times prophecy that Syria will no longer be a city, but a heap of ruins.

Israel is our time clock, and Jesus is our hope. Be looking up, if this regional war actually begins.

Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad told an annual anti-Israel protest in Tehran on Friday that the Jewish state was a “cancerous tumour” that will soon be excised, drawing Western rebukes.

Washington said Ahmadinejad’s statements were “reprehensible”, while Paris viewed them as “outrageous.”

Ahmadinejad’s diatribe against Israel in his Quds (Jerusalem) Day address was the latest in a long line to have drawn criticism from Western governments.

“The Zionist regime and the Zionists are a cancerous tumour,” he said.

“The nations of the region will soon finish off the usurper Zionists in the Palestinian land…. A new Middle East will definitely be formed. With the grace of God and help of the nations, in the new Middle East there will be no trace of the Americans and Zionists,” he said.

Christians Should “Convert, Pay Tribute, or Leave,” Says Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood Candidate

Filed under: — Jennifer Rast @ 1:43 am

The Muslim Brotherhood has been praised as moderate and secular by our President, and invited into the White House as employees and advisers. Meanwhile, the Brotherhood leaders in Egypt are preparing to exterminate the Christians one way or another. Knowing our dear leader’s phony faith, he probably has no problem with this.

These are things Romney needs to be talking about. Let’s hope he doesn’t go the road of Mclame and tiptoe around these issues.

Russian Is Massing Troops On Iran’s North Border And Waiting for Western Attack

Filed under: — Jennifer Rast @ 6:39 pm

The war of Gog and Magog is certainly getting closer. One also might call it World War III, as Iran, allied with Russia and all Muslim countries will be opposed by most of the West. God will Protect Israel as promised. With the corruption and war on God in the United States, I wonder if we will still be under His blessing…..if we even last that long economically and as a unified country.

The Russian military anticipates that an attack will occur on Iran by the summer and has developed an action plan to move Russian troops through neighboring Georgia to stage in Armenia, which borders on the Islamic republic, according to informed Russian sources.

Russian Security Council head Viktor Ozerov said that Russian General Military Headquarters has prepared an action plan in the event of an attack on Iran.

Palestinians fire at least 80 rockets at Southern Israel

Filed under: — Jennifer Rast @ 5:59 pm

Can any American even come close to comprehending what it would be like to live with rockets raining down in your neighborhoods, at your schools, and in your streets on a daily basis? Imagine what our government would be willing to do if 80 rockets were launched at a town in Southern Texas or California. I’m sure the liberals in those towns wouldn’t be protesting in favor of the poor, oppressed terrorists that lobbed the deadly rockets at their homes. Yet, Israel is always cast as the villain for the very measured, and restrained retaliation they take against the terrorists, even as they carefully avoid civilian casualties.

The world is upside down, and I have a feeling God is going to give us a good slap up side the head soon to remind us what reality is, and who runs the show.

Palestinian terrorists fired at least 80 rockets from Gaza into southern Israel since Friday night, leaving eight Israelis injured in the heaviest series of attacks in months. The barrages came in response to an IAF strike which killed the secretary general of the Popular Resistance Committees, Zuhair Qaisi.

The Iron Dome missile defense system intercepted at least five rockets fired from the Gaza Strip at Beersheba and Ashdod early Saturday morning. In total, at least ten rockets have been intercepted by the system since the beginning of the escalation on Friday.

The IAF struck targets in Gaza overnight Friday and Saturday morning in response to the rocket attacks. Twelve Palestinians – 10 of them members of Islamic Jihad – were killed in the strikes and another 20 were injured, according to Palestinian news agency Ma’an.

The escalation in violence in Israel and around the world makes me wonder how much of the chaos is being instigated by Islamists in preparation for the return of the 12th Imam. For several years, prominent Islamic leaders have been predicting that 2012 will be the year that the Mahdi returns. According to Islamic theology, he can’t be revealed until Islamic countries have unleashed a sufficient amount of chaos, war, and bloodshed around the world. In other worlds, things are going to are going to get far worse everywhere, as we near the elections, and the year 2012.

If they have any strategic sense whatsoever, they’ll make their move wile the coward in chief is still in office. Let’s hope they’re as dumb as they act.

Another View of the Syrian “Revolt” (200 Christians killed in Homes by Free Syrian Army)

Filed under: — Jennifer Rast @ 7:57 am

You won’t see this bloody tragedy reported in the MSM. It’s the wrong religion for them to even care. The level of anti-Christian hatred and antisemitism is at a level not seen in decades, and I’m not just referring to the Middle East. The same hate can be seen in cities across the US at occupy mob encampments, and Left wing protests. I have a feeling….and I don’t like saying this…that things are going to get much worse for Christians in the coming year. Who we elect as our next president will affect greatly the level of attacks Christians will experience right here at home.

Pray for our brothers and sisters in the Middle East. Their only choice right now in many areas is to flee to a safer place or face death. May God be with them, and against the enemies of the one true God.

….The Syrian Christians to a man told me that the “freedom fighters” where nothing more than Sunni Jihadists looking to take advantage of the various “Arab Spring” movements that had been successfully overthrowing stable dictatorships throughout the region in favor of radicalized Muslim groups affiliated with the Muslim Brotherhood and al Qaeda. They told me at that time that these groups were not only the main aggressors in the conflict, but that they were specifically targeting Christians for both religious persecution and for political retaliation. Several told me that in Homs the graffiti left by the insurgents often stated, “Alawites to the grave, Christians to the cross.” They told me that rather than the Syrian Army crushing this resistance movement as the Iranians had in 2009, they were actually trying to protect their core constituents from a murder and intimidation campaign that was beginning to mirror what al Qaeda had perpetrated in Iraq during 05-06. The clear strategy of the “freedom fighters” was to attack civilian targets and local police as a way of drawing the Army into a campaign of suppression that they could use to fight the media battle in the western press. Funny, that strategy rings a bell doesn’t it?…..

Obama’s answer to Iran: Cut our nukes by 80%

Filed under: — Jennifer Rast @ 5:19 pm

Sometimes I just have to ask, what is wrong with this man? Our President seems determined to see the destruction of America, or at the very least left with zero influence in the world. What kind of rational leads a President to cut our nuclear arsenal by 80% when North Korea and Iran already basically have nukes, and WILL use them. In addition to that, countries like Saudi Arabia, Iraq, and other Muslim countries will feel the need to get nukes too, if Iran has them. I have to conclude that Obama is clinically insane.

RUSH: There are some things happening today that are downright scary. The regime, led by Barack Hussein Obama, is weighing options for reducing our US nuclear force, including a reduction of up to 80% in the number of deployed warheads — 80%. Folks, this is staggering. Meanwhile, the Iranians are nuking up. Iran announced today that they’re gonna cut off oil to six countries that have opposed its nuclear program, and more importantly, Iran also announced that they have installed domestically made nuclear fuel rods in their Tehran reactor.

Former Member of Russian Joint Chiefs of Staff: Russia Ready to Use Military Power to Defend Iran..

Filed under: — Jennifer Rast @ 9:36 am

The Middle East war that will begin the Tribulation is coming, and all of the countries prophesied to attack Israel are either under Islamic rule, and, or, threatening an attack. The good news is, God wins!

Following are excerpts from an interview with Colonel-General [ret.] Leonid Ivashov, former member of the Russian Joint Chiefs of Staff, which aired on Russia Today TV on February 1, 2012:

Interviewer: Dr. Leonid, do you think that these preparations and very large maneuvers, which will soon be conducted by Russia, are meant as preparation for war, or rather, a military strike against Iran?

[…]

Leonid Ivashov: These maneuvers and training will demonstrate Russia’s readiness to use military power to defend its national interests and to bolster its political position. The maneuvers will show that Russia does not want any military operations to be waged against Iran or Syria. I assume that the people in the West and in Israel who design the schemes for a large geopolitical operation in the greater Middle East region draw a direct connection between the situation in Syria and in Iran. Indeed, these two countries are allies, and both are considered guaranteed partners of Russia. The only question, therefore, is who they will try to destroy first as a stable country: Syria or Iran.

[…]

A strike against Syria or Iran is an indirect strike against Russia and its interests. Russia would lose important positions and allies in the Arab world. Therefore, by defending Syria, Russia is defending its own interests.

In addition, Russia is thus defending the entire world from Fascism. Everybody should acknowledge that Fascism is making strides on our planet. What they did in Libya is nearly identical to what Hitler and his armies did against Poland and then Russia. Today, therefore, Russia is defending the entire world from Fascism….

Russia: “Should Anything Happen to Iran … This Will Be a Direct Threat to Our National Security”

Filed under: — Jennifer Rast @ 1:51 pm

For any prophecy scholars out there who didn’t think “Rosh”, mentioned in Ezekiel 38 and 39, could refer to Russia forming an alliance with Islamic countries to attack Israel, current news proves how likely this alliance really is. It also warns us of how close we are to the Middle East war that will set the tribulation in motion.

Russia and China Would Consider An Attack On Iran – Or Syria – As An Attack On Their National Security

The escalating conflict around Iran should be contained by common effort, otherwise the promising Arab Spring will grow into a “scorching Arab Summer,” says Dmitry Rogozin, Russia’s deputy prime minister and former envoy to NATO.

“Iran is our close neighbor, just south of the Caucasus. Should anything happen to Iran, should Iran get drawn into any political or military hardships, this will be a direct threat to our national security,” stressed Rogozin.

Of course, this isn’t the only evidence we have to go on. Russia has long been supplying Iran with arms and equipment needed for their nuclear program. They are an ally to the Islamic world, and a very real threat to Israel, just as the Bible prophesied.

It only took a week for Iran to start interfering in Iraq. But, at least Obama will be able to say he fulfilled at least one of his campaign promises. This can only end badly.

Iran stands ready to expand its military and security ties with Iraq, its armed forces chief of staff said Sunday, a week after the exit of US forces from the neighbouring Arab country.

General Hassan Firouzabadi hailed the “forced departure” of the US and allied forces that he said “was due to the resistance and determination of the Iraqi people and government,” the state Islamic Republic News Agency reported.

The statements were made in messages Firouzabadi sent to his Iraqi counterpart, Lieutenant General Babaker Zebari, and to Iraq’s acting defence minister, Saadun al-Dulaimi, IRNA said.

The departure of the US troops “was due to the resistance and determination of the Iraqi people and government,” he said.

“I hope the humiliating failure of the United States after nine years of occupying Iraq will serve as a lesson for them to never think of attacking another country,” he said.

I pray that four years of this weak President are all we have to endure.

Muslims Intimidate Their Way Across Europe

Filed under: — Jennifer Rast @ 11:48 am

When you read articles like this one, it makes the hatred and barbaric violence of the end-times seem entirely possible, doesn’t it?

A mob of some 20 Islamists stormed a debate in Amsterdam that was featuring two Muslim liberals, the Canadian writer and Muslim feminist Irshad Manji and the Dutch-Moroccan Green Left MP Tofik Dibi.

Muslim extremists belonging to the group Sharia4Belgium, which seeks to establish Islamic Sharia law across Europe, yelled “Allahu Akbar” (“Allah is Greater”) and threatened to break Manji’s neck. Waving an Islamist jihadist flag, they then demanded that Manji and Dibi be executed for apostasy.

The December 8 debate on how liberal Muslims can prevent Islam from being hijacked by Muslim extremists was held at the De Baile venue in downtown Amsterdam, and was sponsored by the Brussels-based European Foundation for Democracy. The event resumed after police arrested several of the Islamists.

The incident highlights the increasing frequency with which Muslims are using intimidation tactics — including harassment and even murder — in an effort to silence free speech in Europe and to impose Islam on the continent.

Manji is touring Europe to promote her new book, “Allah, Liberty and Love.” She is also the author of “The Trouble With Islam Today,” which is critical of mainstream Islam and its deep-seated anti-Semitism.

The confrontation took place just days after a group of ten Dutch-Moroccan Muslim youths threw stones at a Santa Claus in the southwestern Slotervaart neighborhood of Amsterdam, where more than 30% of the population is Moroccan and another 20% is Turkish.

In recent years, Christian festivities celebrating the arrival of “Sinterklaas” to the Netherlands have been cancelled in several cities due to threats and violence by Muslim youths.

In Belgium, 40 members of Sharia4Belgium recently disrupted a speech about Islam by the Dutch author Benno Barnard. The lecture, entitled “The Islam Debate: Long Live God, Down with Allah!,” was part of a series of talks about the Enlightenment at Antwerp University.

Sharia4Belgium is a radical Muslim organization that denounces democracy and wants to turn Belgium into an Islamic state. The group has established an Islamic Sharia law court in Antwerp, the second-largest city in Belgium. The objective of the court is to create a parallel Islamic legal system in Belgium that will challenge the state’s authority as the enforcer of civil law protections guaranteed by the Belgian constitution.

In France, teachers in schools with a high proportion of Muslim children are being threatened on an almost daily basis by Muslims who object to courses about the Holocaust, the Crusades or evolution, and who demand halal [food "permitted" under Islamic Sharia law] meals and “reject French culture and its values,” according to a report published by the French government. Muslims are also trying to silence discussion of events related to Israel and the Palestinians, and American military actions in Muslim countries. …..

Egyptians back in Tahrir for anti-military protests

Filed under: — Jennifer Rast @ 12:05 pm

The Islamist, terrorist group The Muslim Brotherhood is going back to the streets in Cairo without the leftists covering for them. It doesn’t appear they’re going to stop with the Arab mess until they’ve rested power from the military regime currently running the country.

Hundreds of thousands of Egyptians rallied Friday in Cairo’s Tahrir square with Islamists in the forefront to protest against what they say are attempts by the country’s military rulers to designate themselves as the guardians of a new Egypt. It was one of the largest rallied in Egypt in recent months.

Most rallies in Tahrir have been led by liberal- or left-leaning groups. But Friday’s rally was dominated by the country’s most organized political group, the Muslim Brotherhood, which has rarely come out in full force since the protests that forced President Hosni Mubarak to step down in February.

The Brotherhood had until recently avoided confrontation with the ruling Supreme Council of the Armed Forces, but now warns of escalating its protest campaign if plans to give permanent political powers to the military are not scrapped.

Israel Planning Attack on Iran

Filed under: — Jennifer Rast @ 10:51 am

Apparently, more than one traitor to Israel leaked information regarding a planned attack on Iran’s nuclear facilities. So far, it sounds like the leak isn’t going to be an obstacle to Israel’s fulfillment of those plans, eventually. If so, the world is truly getting crazy fast.

The entire Middle East is in turmoil, and increasingly under Islamist’s control. Libya is flying the Al Qaeda flag, and poses one of the biggest threats to the U.S., if a war breaks out between Arab nations and Israel. Cutting off the Strait of Hormuz would seriously impact the world’s oil supply and the global economy, which is already on the verge of collapse.

Could Iran’s nuclear ambitions be the fuse that set’s off the prophesied Middle East war that will usher in the Antichrist? All the right players are doing exactly what the Bible predicts. Iran’s President certainly believes this is the beginning of the chaos and bloodshed that will usher in the 12th Imam, who Islam’s teachings portray as a dead on match for the Antichrist of the Bible. We are living in interesting and intense times. Be ready for all contingencies…a chaotic, desperate world, or the glorious return of Christ for His church.

Israel’s prime minister has ordered an investigation into alleged leaks of plans to attack Iran’s nuclear facilities, it has been reported.

According to the Kuwaiti newspaper al-Jarida, the main suspects are the former heads of the Mossad and the Shin Bet, respectively Israel’s foreign and domestic intelligence agencies.

Netanyahu is said to believe that the two, Meir Dagan and Yuval Diskin, wanted to torpedo plans being drawn up by him and Ehud Barak, the defence minister, to hit Iranian nuclear sites. Tzipi Livni, leader of the opposition Kadima party, is also said to have been persuaded to attack Netanyahu for “adventurism” and “gambling with Israel’s national interest”.

The paper suggested that the purpose of the leaks was to prevent an attack, which had moved from the stage of discussion to implementation. “Those who oppose the plan within the security establishment decided to leak it to the media and thwart the plan,” it said.

I just don’t see how this hurts Israel’s future plans. Sure, it will delay things, but I think most world leaders are at least smart enough to know Israel isn’t going to sit by and let a nut like Ahmadinejad get a nuclear weapon. They’ve taken care of nuclear problems for the U.S. once before, and they’ll probably have to do it again. Sadly, our current administration will likely join the rest of the world in condemning Israel for an action that will save their collective behinds.

Gingrich: Anti-Christian Spring Is Coming (Blasts Muslim Student Lawsuit at Catholic University)

Filed under: — Jennifer Rast @ 6:06 pm

Amen! Newt says it all.

Charges of anti-Muslim discrimination at Catholic University in D.C. has presidential candidate Newt Gingrich up in arms.

“I look at the things that are going on in this country that make no sense to me,” he said to a crowd of about 250 South Carolinians gathered at a pig roast fundraiser organized by the Myrtle Beach Tea Party. “We now have a lawsuit apparently by some Muslim students at Catholic University who are offended being at a Catholic university. Now my first answer to them is ‘Fine, don’t go to a Catholic university.’”

His comments drew applause. Gingrich was referring to allegations that Catholic University of America is illegally discriminating against Muslim students by “denying them access to benefits that other student groups enjoy,” and, in particular, not providing space for daily prayers so that they have to pray in classrooms or campus chapels where they are surrounded by Catholic symbols. The charges are currently being reviewed by the District of Columbia Office of Human Rights.

I wonder how many Madrassas would hide the Koran, change their clothing, or take down images symbolic of Islam for a Christian student? Oh, never mind, Christians wouldn’t even be allowed to enroll for classes at a Muslim school.

And, the infiltration without assimilation continues, one little bit at a time. We may be behind the Brits in their “Muslim problem”, but we’re headed in the same direction.

Vatican calls for global authority on economy, raps idolatry of the market

Filed under: — Jennifer Rast @ 12:27 pm

Interesting. The Vatican is calling for a global financial system and a global public authority in response to the financial crisis. Perhaps they should read Revelation and Ezekiel a little more closely. Of course, since they put little stock in the Bible and rely on Papal infallibility for their traditions, that might not help at all. Will they be calling for a global religion next? Interesting times.

The Vatican called on Monday for the establishment of a “global public authority” and a “central world bank” to rule over financial institutions that have become outdated and often ineffective in dealing fairly with crises. The document from the Vatican’s Justice and Peace department should please the “Occupy Wall Street” demonstrators and similar movements around the world who have protested against the economic downturn.

I wonder how Catholics feel about their supreme leader siding with the Occupy Wall Street crowd, which is also siding with the Communists and anarchists that have joined them? Next they’ll be nominating George Soros, the primary funder of the OWSies, to be the one global authority. Things are happening fast from a Biblical perspective.

Think I’m being a bit extreme in my interpretation of the Vatican’s comments? They’re also calling for a global “moral code”.

“The economic and financial crisis which the world is going through calls everyone, individuals and peoples, to examine in depth the principles and the cultural and moral values at the basis of social coexistence,” it said.

If it’s social, moral, and cultural coexistence they want, I guarantee the Muslim population isn’t going to go along, unless we’re all under Shariah Law. But, whatever it takes to have social and moral coexistence, right?

Isn’t that Arab Spring just great? If Michelle and Barrack weren’t so busy worrying about our fat (while eating hamburgers at every eating establishment they pass on the campaign trail), maybe they could worry a bit about women’s rights in the ever increasing number of Shariah compliant countries.

The transitional government leader Mustafa Abdul-Jalil set out a vision for the post-Gadhafi future with an Islamist tint, saying that Islamic Sharia law would be the “basic source” of legislation in the country and that existing laws that contradict the teachings of Islam would be nullified.

But, I thought the Arab Spring was about liberation and democracy?? I’m being sarcastic here.

Afghanistan to back Pakistan if wars with U.S.: Karzai

Filed under: — Jennifer Rast @ 9:25 am

Wow. We really won some friends and influenced people in Afghanistan. I’m not saying the war wasn’t justified after 9/11, but it’s a good lesson in not trusting Islamists. No matter what you do for them, they’ll still chant “death to America” and follow through on that sentiment when the chips are down.

Afghanistan would support Pakistan in case of military conflict between Pakistan and the United States, Afghan President Hamid Karzai said in an interview to a private Pakistani TV channel broadcast on Saturday.

The remarks were in sharp contrast to recent tension between the two neighbors over cross-border raids, and Afghan accusations that Pakistan was involved in killing the chief Afghan peace envoy, former Afghan president Burhanuddin Rabbani, by a suicide bomber on September 20.

Islamists win elections in Tunisia

Filed under: — Jennifer Rast @ 8:47 am

Our President praised the, so called, “Arab Spring” as if it were a revolution of freedom and liberty for the Muslim people in the Middle East and beyond. Either he thinks Shariah Law and Islamic enslavement are a good idea, or he’s woefully misinformed 99% of the time. Perhaps both.

I wasn’t a big fan of George Bush’s economic policies, but at least he new what democracy was, and would have tried to spread true democracy, rather than encourage the takeover of Islamic governments by terrorist groups like the Muslim Brotherhood. If you’ve bought into the media’s spin regarding the MB, a little research should quickly change your mind. They are linked to several Islamic terrorist groups, most notably Al Qaeda. No wonder the current administration won’t even utter the words “War on Terror”, or Islam and terrorism in the same sentence. We’re entering scary times, folks.

Tunisians are electing a 217-seat assembly that will draft a constitution and appoint an interim government.

Former President Zinedine el-Abidine Ben Ali was overthrown nine months ago after mass demonstrations.

Islamist party Ennahda is expected to win the most votes, though it is not clear if it will gain a majority.

Mr Ben Ali fled Tunisia on 14 January amid the first of several mass uprisings across the Arab world.

Don’t believe the spin the MSM is peddling. The Islamist groups predicted to win a sizable influence in the government of Tunisia are NOT “moderates”. Hence the label “Islamists”.

Building codes are something the Turkish government might want to look into. With the Muslim Brotherhood taking over power in that country, I don’t think there’s much hope of that happening, though. It’s truly sad that so many Muslims in Arab countries have to suffer such senseless death and destruction.

White House scrubs Islam from terrorism training manuals

Filed under: — Jennifer Rast @ 6:33 am

Maybe if the White House lies enough, they can at least pretend they established their desired, socialist utopia under Obama. If our terrorism units don’t understand Islam, they’re fighting the War on Terror blind, and with their hands tied behind their backs. Islam is what feeds the Islamic terrorist’s blood lust. Just read the Koran, and it’s obvious. If you’re more ambitious than the current blissfully ignorant administration (or don’t want to hide the truth), read the Haddith as well, or peruse the Islamists’ “terrorist porn” websites. Why do you think the terrorists yell Allah hu Akbar just before they slaughter innocent civilians? Because they are doing it for Allah in the name of Islam, and they aren’t afraid to admit it!

President Obama Will Announce Today Complete Drawdown of US Troops in Iraq by Years End

Filed under: — Jennifer Rast @ 1:17 pm

Could it be that Obama is actually going to try to fulfill at least one of his campaign promises before the 2012 election? Or, did the teleprompter just tell him to say this?

Sources tell ABC News that the president will announce today that US troops in Iraq will draw down to zero by the end of the year.

A White House official says that at approximately 11:30am today, President Obama convened a secure video conference with Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki to talk with him about this news.

I guess there wasn’t enough violence in the Arab world, so Obama needs to completely remove our presence from Iraq. After all, they can’t join the revolution if there are U.S. troops there to keep the peace. Don’t get me wrong, I’m all for giving our troops some much needed R&R, but sending troops to Uganda at the expense of stability in Iraq is just plain…..something Obama would do.

Sudan President Vows New All-Islamic Constitution, Shariah-Based Legislation

Filed under: — Jennifer Rast @ 12:14 pm

Arab revolution is leading to great things, isn’t it? NOT! Pray for the Christians living in Sudan. Their lives just got a lot more dangerous.

Sudan plans to move forward with an all-Islamic constitution and a legal system governed by Shariah law, the country’s president said Wednesday.

The announcement comes three months after neighboring South Sudan, largely Christian, declared its independence and split off from the predominantly Muslim north. Sudanese President Omar Hassan al-Bashir had said in December that his country would adopt an Islamic constitution if the south made such a move, Reuters reported, though many hoped he would not go through with it.

“Ninety eight percent of the people are Muslims and the new constitution will reflect this. The official religion will be Islam and Islamic law the main source [of the constitution],” Bashir said in a speech to students in Khartoum. “We call it a Muslim state.”

Coptic Church Condemns Attack, Muslims Pelt Funeral Procession With Bricks

Filed under: — Jennifer Rast @ 7:23 am

It isn’t enough for the savages in Egypt to kill the Christian minority, they have to throw bricks at the mourners as they try to collect their dead. Equally disturbing is the fact that our President supports this “revolution” by the Muslim Brotherhood.

The Coptic Orthodox Church in Egypt issued a statement on October 10, expressing horror at the events of yesterday in Maspero, where 24 Copts were killed and over 200 and wounded. The church stressed that the Christian faith rejects violence. The church blasted the government for failing to find solutions to “problems that occur repeatedly and go unpunished.” The Church asked all Copts to fast continuously for three days starting tomorrow “in order to have peace in Egypt.”

Some interpreted this demand, which the church has made only three times in its long history, as a way to implore “God’s help for the Copts,” commented Coptic activist and writer Nader Shoukry.

In Cairo, thousands of Copts marched to attend the funeral of the victims of what they termed the “October 9 Military Massacre.” They congregated in front of the Coptic hospital where most of the dead and injured were transported, and which was attacked the night before by Muslims, who hurled bricks and Molotov Cocktails at the victims’ families.

NATO Helping Cause Humanitarian Crisis in Libya

Filed under: — Jennifer Rast @ 1:01 pm

Where are all the anti-war progressives now. Under George Bush we heard wild accusations of hundreds of thousands of civilian deaths in Iraq. The Left was frothing at the mouth about the “unjust war”. Now we have crudely armed rebels wiping out civilians right and left in Libya, and what do we hear from the progressives? Crickets. They’re too busy throwing a fit on the Brooklyn Bridge and getting arrested.

The fighters of Libya’s National Transitional Council, the rebel movement turned temporary government, have launched what they say is a “final assault” on Sirte — hometown of ousted dictator Colonel Gaddafi and one of the last redoubts of his supporters.

Thousands of civilians have fled the town, but thousands more are trapped inside, unable or unwilling to leave. The Red Cross reports that conditions inside Sirte are deteriorating, with people dying in the main hospital due to shortages of medical supplies, fuel, and water; food is also said to be in short supply.

There are no reliable casualty figures, although pro-Gaddafi forces — not surprisingly — are reporting hundreds of civilian deaths caused by both NTC fighters and NATO airstrikes. While those claims can’t be verified, with both rebel forces bombarding the town for the past couple weeks it’s inconceivable that civilians are not being killed and injured.

No one can find a statistic for the civilian deaths, because it couldn’t be blamed on George Bush. They must protect dear leader at all costs.

Ahmadinejad Threatens Israel…Again

Filed under: — Jennifer Rast @ 8:57 am

Yet another threat from the nut with nukes. I hope the Iranian regime isn’t preparing to do their worst before our cowardly leader leaves office. God be with the Jews, Christians, and Arabs in Israel.

Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad criticized Turkey on Tuesday for hosting a NATO early-warning radar system, saying it was aimed at protecting Israel but warning it would “not stop the fall of the Zionist regime.”

The Turkish and US governments said last month the radar system would help spot missile threats coming from outside Europe, including potentially from Iran. The system, provided by the United States, is to become operational later this year.

“This radar system is more aimed at defending the Zionist regime,” Ahmadinejad said in a live television interview late on Tuesday.

“They want to make sure that our missiles do not reach the occupied territories, in case they acted militarily against Iran one day,” he added.

“We have told our Turkish friends that it was not right to give this permission and that it was not in their benefit to do this… But such radar system will not stop the fall of the Zionist regime.”

This doesn’t sound like an Arab Spring to me. It sounds like we’re getting prepared for an Islamic attack on Israel.

ACLU now forcing schools to allow prayer…if it’s directed to Allah

Filed under: — Jennifer Rast @ 8:01 am

How many lawsuits have been filed by the ACLU to keep Christians from praying anywhere near a school or school function? For decades they have relentlessly bullied and threatened Christians for exercising their right to pray. I remember a 5 year old student being forced by the ACLU to stop saying grace before she ate her lunch in the school lunch room. So, what has changed? The ACLU is more afraid of being targeted by head chopping Islamists than they are the thought of prayers going out from a school room.

Completely turning their previous logic on its head, the ACLU has now decided their version of separation of church and state doesn’t apply to Muslims. Christian prayers are still worthy of a costly lawsuit, but Muslim children must be allowed to pray during class. Not only can they pray without fear of lawsuits, they must be provided a place to pray.

I actually support the ACLU’s change of heart. Children should be allowed to pray whenever and wherever they want. That’s called freedom of religion. However, I don’t expect the ACLU to start letting all children pray, just Muslim children. It’s hard to tell whether we’re in Saudi Arabia or America at times.

The bully is now the bullied. The ACLU has traded one master (liberalism) for another – Islam. They are far more frightened of their new masters’ swords than Christians’ pens.

The ACLU has tipped its hand giving us positive proof of what we always thought they were: feckless twerps and enemies of our freedoms.

Since their pinup girl Madelyn Murray O’Hare forced God out of our government schools, the ACLU has been on a relentless crusade to “cleanse” our public and private lives of anything THEY deem violations of their idea of the relationship between Church and State.

If a high school football team in Texas wants to pray before a game, the ACLU is right there threatening a costly lawsuit against the school, the school district and the coach as an individual defendant. They seem never to miss an opportunity to destroy the influence of God and promote atheism using intimidation as their weapon of choice.

Bringing fear to the faithful has always been what these social parasites are about; but now the jack boot appears to be on the other foot and the bully is being bullied. The ACLU has joined in a fight to force San Diego’s public schools to accommodate Muslim students wishing to pray in public school while classes are in sessions.

Whimpering that the Qur’an demands Muslims pray five times a day, a frightened ACLU spokesperson defended the move as necessary to provide freedom to worship – see what a sword in the back can do?

What is notable, but not surprising is that at the same time these phony ACLU hypocrites are fighting for Muslim religious rights in California, they are fighting against Judeo-Christian expressions in the public schools in Virginia!

Muslims in Egypt burn Christian churches

Filed under: — Jennifer Rast @ 3:10 pm

Some Arab Spring our fearless leader likes to brag about. Only in Islam would afternoon prayers consist of 20 mosques telling their sheeple to burn down a Coptic Christian church, burn down Christian’s houses and loot them, and then kill Christians, too. This is what happens when Islamists take over a country. They’ve been doing it for over 1400 years, and in their minds the crusades never ended. To add insult to injury, our government has been meeting with the Muslim Brotherhood and promises to keep open communications with them. Why don’t they meet with Al Qaeda while their at it. The Muslim Brotherhood created Al Qaeda, so they might as well. I wonder how Israel feels about that move. Probably, much like they’ve joined the rest of us under Obama’s bus.

While our troops are dying to protect Muslims in Afghanistan from their own club of murdering maniacs, our President does nothing about the extermination of Christians going on in Egypt. I take that back, he does do something. He praises their move toward democracy. The “democracy” that MB leaders don’t believe in. It’s Shariah law in action folks. It could be anyone of us in the future. When will America learn that what happens over there can happen here. It’s not like they aren’t working toward the same result here, and around the world.

Lord help the Christians in Iraq, Egypt, Afghanistan, and wherever the next Islamic revolution breaks out.

Michael Ramzy, a villager in Elmarenab, said the attack started shortly after Muslims held their afternoon prayers.

“Imams in more than 20 mosques called for crowds to gather and destroy the church and demolish the houses of the Copts and loot their properties,” Ramzy told local media.

The Mar Gerges burning is the third church in Egypt in seven months to be burned down by a mob.

Sounds like Arab HELL to me.

All Your World Are Belong to Us! – Egyptian Leader

Filed under: — Jennifer Rast @ 12:57 pm

So, is anyone out there still buying the Left’s delusion that the “Arab Spring” is a wonderful thing? Look closer and you’ll see that it’s more of an Arab Winter for the non-extremist Jew haters. While Hollywood wanabees, and Lefty bloggers celebrate the new “democracy” and “freedom” in Egypt, Egypt’s leaders are making them look like useful idiots by saying things like, “democracy is a retarded idea”. Make no mistake, Shariah law and Islamic fundamentalism are alive and well in Egypt, and they are the fuel that feeds the protests in that country.

If any Christians out there are buying into the Utopic lie the administration is selling, perhaps influential Egyptian Shaykh Safwat Hegazy will clear things up for you. At the heart of the Egyptian uprising is this:

“Jerusalem belongs to us, and the whole world belongs to us.” He states the Islamic caliphate will return, and that “every land upon which Islam has set foot will return to us.” He makes poignant references to Qurayza and Khaybar, which are clear threats against the Jews, and also states, “we will kill anyone who has polluted the al-Aqsa Mosque.”

The new Egyptian leaders, all members of the Muslim Brotherhood, are not the good guys we’re being told they are. Obviously, in true Hitler-like fashion, they want to kill all of the Jews. That’s nothing Iran hasn’t said 100 times. It’s important to realize, however, that the Arabs are engaged in a global movement, not a strictly regional one. If you can muster no sympathy for the Jews, Christians, and Muslims living in Israel, perhaps it will mean more when the target moves closer to home. I know I’m preaching to the choir in many cases, here. But, there are a growing number of people in America who get no news that the government doesn’t want you to hear. It’s those people these quotes and facts are intended to reach. Hegazy will likely be a key player in Egypt’s future. Before you buy into the media spin, watch this 2009 video of Hegazy’s vision for the world. His views haven’t changed a bit, and he is not leading a peaceful democracy movement in the Middle East. His own words prove this. If you’re asking why we should care? Once again, because, it’s a global movement, not a state, or regional one.

Christian in Iran faces execution for refusing to renounce his faith

Filed under: — Jennifer Rast @ 4:06 pm

A very dark period is dawning on this world. It’s nothing new for Christians to be murdered for their faith, especially in Islamic countries, but when do you remember a time when it was national news and no one cared. Iran openly admits they are going to behead a man for being Christian, yet the MSM pretends they are ignorant of the tragedy, while the rest of the civilized world sits by and waits. Some effort is being made on his behalf, sure, but nothing like you would see if it were a Muslim in the United States sentenced to death for being Muslim. I fear, just like Hitler’s campaign of mass murder, mankind will recognize the pure evil, and barbarism of Islam’s fascist leaders far too late to save the many lives that will be lost to this kind of insanity.

While on the subject of Iran, does it bother anyone that Iran is also announcing the deployment of its navy to U.S. waters in response to our presence in waters close to Iran? Granted, their navy looks like toy boats compared to the full force of the United States Navy. However, it’s a giant step toward collaborating with Venezuela or Cuba to use an EMP, Dirty bomb, or, God forbid, a nuke on American soil. Obama is exactly the kind of President rouge dictators dream of. He’s far too busy bowing to Islamic leaders, and giving pep talks to the Muslim world to protect this country. I certainly hope Americans vote smart in the next election.

Pray for Yousef Nadarkhani and make sure your churches and political leaders know about this tragic situation.

CSW is urgently calling for action on behalf of Pastor Yousef Nadarkhani who faces execution anytime from Thursday onwards after refusing to renounce his faith.

Pastor Nadarkhani is currently on trial in Rasht. He has appeared in court three times this week and each time has refused to renounce his faith when asked to do so by the court.

U.S. Takes Away Israel’s Only Bargaining Chip

Filed under: — Jennifer Rast @ 4:31 pm

Charles Krauthammer does an excellent job of laying out the habit America has of consistently throwing Israel under the bus, and the current administration’s attempt to pull the rug out from under the Jewish state completely.

Once again Israel is expected to give up more land in exchange for promises that everyone knows the Palestinians have no intention of keeping. Only this time, and for the first time in our long relationship with Israel, Obama is telling Israel they must return to the indefensible 1967 borders in exchange for more “Gaza style” promises. It’s a nonstarter, and Obama knows it. It sure gives the Palestinians a convenient chance to once again blame Israel for stalling the “peace” talks.

On a side note, is anyone else noticing the global chaos and extreme uptick in natural disasters that are accompanying this so called “Arab Spring”. Call me crazy, but a new Nazi political party gaining in popularity in Egypt doesn’t feel much like Spring to me. It’s more like hell on earth all over again.

Every Arab-Israeli negotiation contains a fundamental asymmetry: Israel gives up land, which is tangible; the Arabs make promises, which are ephemeral.

The long-standing American solution has been to nonetheless urge Israel to take risks for peace while America balances things by giving assurances of U.S. support for Israel’s security and diplomatic needs.

It’s on the basis of such solemn assurances that Israel undertook, for example, the Gaza withdrawal.

In order to mitigate this risk, President George W. Bush gave a written commitment that America supported Israel’s absorption of major settlement blocs in any peace agreement, opposed any return to the 1967 lines and stood firm against the so-called Palestinian right of return to Israel.

For two and a half years, the Obama administration has refused to recognize and reaffirm these assurances.

Then last week in his State Department speech, President Obama definitively trashed them. He declared that the Arab-Israeli conflict should indeed be resolved along “the 1967 lines with mutually agreed swaps.”

Nothing new here, said Obama three days later. “By definition, it means that the parties themselves — Israelis and Palestinians — will negotiate a border that is different” from 1967.

It means nothing of the sort. “Mutually” means both parties have to agree. And if one side doesn’t? Then, by definition, you’re back to the 1967 lines.

Obama is the new Arafat – Knesset

Filed under: — Jennifer Rast @ 12:32 pm

Apparently President Obama is just ignorant of history and military tactics, or he really does side with the Muslim rioters who can’t wait to wipe Israel off the map. Why such a harsh accusation? Because everything he HAS done and everything he WANTS to do, bring the Arab world closer and closer to their stated goal of wiping out the Jewish state.

Case in point: Obama wants to create a Palestinian state based on the 1967 borders. This would be like recreating Mexico to include the southern United States.

Many wars were fought in this world’s past, and it shapes the borders we live within today. Why should Israel give back the land they won; the very land that gave the Arabs a strategic advantage in the first place (the Golan Heights and West Bank) to attack them. The Arabs LOST that war, and every other war they’ve launched against the Jewish nation. Losing wars have consequences, especially when they are the result of an unprovoked attack by a bunch of barbaric murders that have historically slaughtered men women and children of other faiths throughout history.

Allow me to sum up. The Arabs attack Israel in 67, they get their butts handed to them, Israel gains the land that the Arabs used to launch their attack (like every other country that has been the victor in a war), and now that the Arabs are working together and with Russia to prepare for another attack, our Socialist, anti-Israel, pseudo Christian, pro Social Justice President wants Israel to give back the land that gave the Arabs their biggest advantage in previous attacks.

America, If we don’t vote this Godless man out of office in 2012, we’re in big trouble. It is our friendship with, and support of Israel that has made us a blessed nation for 200 years. It’s also the right thing to do.

By GIL HOFFMAN – The Jerusalem Post

Danon, Ben-Ari outraged by US president’s call for creation of Palestinian state on ’67 lines; Livni says plan in Israel’s interests.

Knesset members on the Right expressed outrage on Thursday night at US President Barack Obama’s call for the creation of a Palestinian state based on the 1967 lines with mutually agreed swaps in an exchange of territory for security.

They called upon Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu to reject Obama’s plan when he meets with him on Friday in Washington.

“Barack Hussein Obama adopted the staged plan for Israel’s destruction of Yasser Arafat, and he is trying to force it on our prime minister,” said Likud MK Danny Danon. “All that was new in the speech was that he called for Israel to return to 1967 borders without solving the crisis. Netanyahu has only one option: To tell Obama forget about it.”

New Al Qaeda plan: Synagogues, churches, small towns, soft targets

Filed under: — Jennifer Rast @ 1:45 pm

With the media’s fine job of releasing as much classified information as possible, and the Obama’s administration demonstrating their lack of experience by providing the enemy large data dumps from the mother load of intel gained in the Osama raid.

Couldn’t the man given our intelligence community even a day, or maybe a week, to find and act on all of that actionable intelligence? The White House gave our enemies a huge break by allowing them time to cover their tracks, and throw out the old Al Qaeda training manual. I fear our antisemitic liberal friends will soon find out what it’s like to be a Jew in Israel.

Though al Qaeda has primarily focused on large-scale coordinated attacks since the tragic events of Sept. 11, including the attempted downing of several commercial airliners, the terrorist organization and its allies are increasingly likely to attempt small-scale attacks in the U.S., senior Obama administration officials said Wednesday. These less intricate attacks—like the plot against New York’s subway system and the failed car bombing in Times Square—are harder to detect. The threat has increased with the rise of al Qaeda-affiliated groups in Pakistan, Yemen, and Somalia, and with the higher number of American terrorists inspired by terrorist ideology. “The spike in homegrown violent extremist activity during the past year is indicative of a common cause that rallies independent extremists to want to attack the homeland,” said Michael Leiter, director of the National Counterterrorism Center.

Pakistan Militants Threaten To Kill Christian Rights Leader

Filed under: — Jennifer Rast @ 4:46 pm

Haven’t the liberal elites been telling us since 9/11 that Islam is a peaceful religion? Haven’t they also insisted this isn’t a religious war? I don’t think the Islamists got the message. I can’t imagine a worse time to have a president in office who can’t even use the word war, especially in the same sentence with the word terror.

Sadly, I can’t imagine our weak president protecting Christians in the same way he’s coming to the rescue of the “rebels” (aka Jihadists who fought our soldiers in Iraq not that long ago) in Libya.

I knew the prophetic clock was ticking loudly, I just didn’t expect things to happen this fast. His time is not our time, that’s for certain.

I thought this paragraph from the article was particularly absurd, and somewhat amusing, if it weren’t so tragic.

It was not immediately clear who was behind the threats. However suspected Islamic militants who killed Bhatti in Islamabad left leaflets at the scene saying terror group al-Qaida and the Pakistani Taliban Movement in Punjab province would kill all those openly opposing the legislation.

The terrorists left leaflets, but it wasn’t immediately clear who was behind the threats. It must have been one of those radical Amish groups in the U.S. You know how the Amish are. They’re always blowing themselves up, and killing innocents in every country on the planet. For the kool aid drinkers, that last bit was sarcasm.

West pounds Libya, Kadhafi vows retaliation

Filed under: — Jennifer Rast @ 5:18 pm

War, it seems, is okay, as long as a Democrat is in the White House. Where are all the moonbats with their “no war for oil” and “make love not war” signs? Perhaps they’re sitting this one out because they know the “rebels” we’re siding with were once in Iraq fighting our troops – siding with Saddam in that “unjust war”. Or, maybe they see the “rebels” worth defending because most of them have ties to Islamic militant groups. Code Pink must be ecstatic that what they started (in partnership with the Muslim Brotherhood) in Egypt, is spreading across the whole Middle East. Keep looking up, folks. Prophecy fulfillment is going to be moving faster than some might have thought, as we get closer to the tribulation.

The US, Britain and France pounded Libya with air strikes and Tomahawk missiles on Saturday, sparking a furious response from Moamer Kadhafi who said the Mediterranean had now become a “battlefield.”

Christians attacked by military in Egypt

Filed under: — Jennifer Rast @ 12:01 pm

I think most of us saw this coming. Just as Christians were attacked in Iraq when it was freed of Saddam’s iron-fisted rule, the Egyptian military is attacking and killing Coptic in Christians in Egypt following the overthrow of Egypt’s decades long leader. Muslims are never satisfied until they’ve killed all the Christians and Jews in site. Pray for all those who are fleeing for their lives in Egypt.

Dozens of Christian demonstrators have been attacked by Egyptian Armed Forces despite agreeing to suspend a sit-in protest outside the state-run television building that lasted 9 days.

The Coptic protesters came under fire on Monday, as the youth cleaned up the site and families from other provinces packed up their belongings, according to the Assyrian International News Agency.

Dr Gameel Ebeid of the Coptic hospital in Cairo treated 15 victims of the assault, 14 of which suffered from broken feet and head wounds caused by electrified batons.

“Suddenly at 3:45 AM they were attacked heavily by the army unit present at the TV building,” Dr Ebeid reported. “The youth started running and those who were caught were stripped of their mobile phones so as not to take photos, and their personal belongings were confiscated.”

The army also attacked Father Filopareer Gamil, one of the leaders of the sit- in, but Coptic protesters shielded him with their bodies.

Wave of bomb blasts target Christians in Baghdad

Filed under: — Jennifer Rast @ 6:01 pm

It looks like we saved a bunch of Iraqis from the hell of living under Saddam Hussein so Muslim terrorists could declare open season on Christians. In a post on the internet the terrorist group responsible for this latest bombing of a Christian church, as well as previous attacks, has promised an all out war on minority Christians in Iraq. Most Christians have already had to flee their Iraqi homeland because America did little to protect them after major combat operations ended. Lets pray that policy changes, and our forces start protecting the Christian communities and churches in Iraq. Iraq may be an Islamic state, but Christians have historic ties to the land that go back long before Muhammad concocted his murderous religion.

A series of bomb blasts targeting Christians in Baghdad has killed at least three people and injured two dozen more, security sources have said.

At least 14 roadside bombs were detonated and a mortar round was fired in Christian districts across the Iraqi capital last night and early this morning.

An interior ministry source told Reuters that the attacks were a “continuation” of the massacre at Our Lady of Salvation church which killed dozens of worshippers last week.

According to one report, today’s bombings targeted the family of one of the victims of the massacre.

The Islamic State of Iraq – an al-Qaeda front group – claimed responsibility for the Baghdad church attack and warned in a message published on militant websites that more attacks would follow. “We will open upon them the doors of destruction and rivers of blood,” the statement said.

The latest bombings follow protests by Iraqi Christians in Sweden, Australia, Britain, the Netherlands, Germany and America who urged the Iraqi government to do more to protect the country’s minorities.

About 300 protesters at the “Black March” in London called on Britain to remember its historic debt to Iraq’s Aramaic-speaing Assyrian Christians, who fought alongside Britain in two world wars.
