In any earlier post entitled “Polston Suspension Lifted – Prof Zufari Resigns” which exposes that Areej Zufari as a down in the dirt radical Muslim that hates Jews and Christians. I have no knowledge of Marshall Polston’s dedication to the Christian faith. BUT I DO KNOW Mr. Polston was willing to face the wrath of a Christian faith-hating Muslim in Areej Zufari. As the title suggests, Zufari resigned her post as a Professor at Rollins College.

 

Rollins College maintains Zufari left on good terms. She resigned, the college claims, because of hostile threats. That may be true but Zufari’s Islamic terrorist connections should have gotten her FIRED!

 

Now I am learning Muslim terrorist loving Areej Zufari is also a full Professor at Valencia College also located in Florida just as Rollins College. ACT for America has sent out an “ACTION ALERT” asking protestors to demand the Islamist Professor resign from Valencia College as well.

 

I would go a step further and begin protesting to Valencia College that this supporter of Islamic terrorism be fired! Here is Valencia College contact info from its Contact Us webpage:

 

Valencia's District Office
1768 Park Center Drive
Orlando, FL 32835

 

Phone 407-582-8033

 

The “Contact Us” page has an online comment section that I suspect one will receive little response from. Yet, a flood of protests (please keep it civil) protesting Areej Zufari’s employ would be noticeable: http://net4.valenciacollege.edu/forms/hr/contact.cfm

 

After doing a little digging I found Valencia College President Sandy Shugart contact info to protest Zufari’s employ:

 

Phone: (407) 582-3400

Email: sshugart@valenciacollege.edu

 

Well that’s my two-cents on protesting directly to Valencia College from outside of Orlando Florida. If you wish to do some phone personal digging here’s the main number: Main Phone Number 407-299-5000

 

ZoomInfo shows that Areej Zufari is a Prof at Valencia College.

 

Here is a ZoomInfo excerpt under the heading Description about Valencia College:

 

Valencia College was founded in 1967 as Valencia Junior College. It became Valencia Community College in 1971 and in 2011 the college changed its name to Valencia College; its president is Sanford C. Shugart, PhD. Twice as many high school graduates in Orange and Osceola counties start college at Valencia than at all Florida state universities combined. One out of four UCF graduates started at Valencia . Since Fall 2011, Valencia College began offering bachelor degree programs. Students on a specific career track can transfer into programs that lead to a bachelor of science in electrical and computer engineering technology, bachelor of science in radiologic and imaging sciences and bachelor of science in cardiopulmonary sciences. Starting in Spring 2017, Valencia College will also offer the bachelor of science in sign language interpretation.

I just an ACT for America email update on Rollins College suspending a student for openly disagree with a Muslim Prof who was indoctrinating the class about the Crucifixion of Cross saying it was a hoax.

 

The student - Marshall Polston. The Professor - Areej Zufari.

 

After Polston publicly complained about his suspension, Counterjihad investigators began to Areej Zufari’s life. The discovery was that she was a Jew-hating radical Muslim working at Rollins College in Florida. Zufari was a mistress to a married Syrian whose name is Maher Ghawji:

 

Joe Kaufman, an investigative journalist for FrontPage Magazine and Chairman of Americans Against Hate a civil rights organization and terrorism watchdog group, filed an affidavit No. CT-003545-04 naming Professor Zufari and her then husband Maher Ghawji a medical doctor based in Memphis, Tennessee. The affidavit reads in part:

 

8. Maher Ghawji has admitted to his wife of being a member of the Muslim Brotherhood, a violent political movement whose members are sworn to “defend Islam” with their “blood.” He accepted this status with a group of friends, during a trip they had made to Cairo, Egypt (Exhibit 1). He left Syria around 1982, the year a government-led massacre took place in the town of Hama – a Brotherhood stronghold – which resulted in the deaths of 10,000 to 40,000 people (Exhibit 2). Following the massacre, members of the Brotherhood fled Syria, some leaving for the U.S. or Europe, some joining up with Osama bin Laden to fight in Afghanistan (Exhibit 3).

 

9. During his court deposition, on June 4, 2004, Maher Ghawji admitted to the court and to his wife of being a Wahhabi, an adherent to a fanatical religious form of Islam READ THE REST (Orlando’s Muslim Professor Areeje Zufari — Profile of a ‘Radical Islamic Supremacist’; By Dr. Rich Swier; Website – Dr. Rich Swier; 3/28/17)

 

Knowing about Zufari’s boyfriend is quite significant; however, if one believes there is Radical Islam inherent in Zufari merely because she is married to a Muslim Brotherhood Jihadi operative, this will change your mind:

 

Zufari served as the spokesperson and Director of Communications for the Islamic Society of Central Florida (ISCF) from 2001 to at least 2004, according to the author bio from her 2012 book “Beyond the Headlines” and press communications from the organization. ISCF's main mosque, Masjid al-Rahman, is owned by the North American Islamic Trust (NAIT), which was classified by federal prosecutors as both an un-indicted co-conspirator in the 2008 Holy Land Foundation terrorism financing case and as an entity that is or was a member of the Muslim Brotherhood.

 

In this case, the Muslim Brotherhood’s goals were identified as “establish[ing] a network of organizations in the U.S. to spread a militant Islamist message and raise money for Hamas,” and “eliminating the State of Israel through violent jihad.” Former FBI special agent Robert Stauffer stated that NAIT’s role in the Muslim Brotherhood is that of a nonprofit financial holding company, according to the Milwaukee-Wisconsin Journal Sentinel.

 

Security policy expert Alex Alexiev reports in the National Review that NAIT is “the proprietor of hundreds of radical mosques and Islamic institutions in the U.S., including some that have been closed down by the government as criminal enterprises.” According to the Hudson Institute, NAIT is the title owner of at least 25% of all Islamic facilities in the United States with some estimates reaching up to 79%. ISCF has not responded to multiple calls and emails asking if Zufari still holds a position with the organization.

 

In recent years ISCF has received notable publicity for terrorism fundraising activities. In 2009, ISCF sponsored and held an event at Masjid al-Rahman that raised at least $55,000 for George Galloway’s Viva Palestina, which has been criticized as being a financial conduit for the terrorist organization Hamas. Indeed, in 2009 Galloway held a public press conference where he handed a bag of cash over to Hamas leadership.

 

 

While its website claims that the organization is for peaceful practitioners of Islam, earlier this year Imam Musri welcomed Sheikh Mohammed Rateb Al-Nabulsi, a radical Muslim cleric who openly calls for the death of Jews and gays, according to Heritage Florida Jewish News.

 

In recent years Rollins College appears to have forged deep connections with ISCF and the two have engaged in affiliated projects dating as far back as 1998. Rollins has collaborated on several events with the ISCF, including one as late as September of 2016, according to the ISCF’s Twitter page.

 

Zufari was caught up in the middle of a divorce case between Rosine Ghawji and her husband, Maher Ghawji, a Syrian-born endocrinologist, whom Rosine has exposed as a supporter of and donor to radical Islamic activities.

 

Proof of the affair, found in the affidavit of counter-terrorism expert Joe Kaufman, showed that Zufari had been planning a trip to a nudist resort with Maher Ghawji, a man who admitted in court to giving money to his brother, who ended up being a part of a terrorist-linked organization, according to page 32 of the court filing. Specifically, a

 

Six years prior to their divorce, Rosine [Maher Ghawji’s ex-wife] began acting as an FBI informant leaking information about her ex-husband, who she claims revealed himself to her to be a member of the Muslim Brotherhood early on in their relationship.

 

Email evidence uncovered in the court filing shows that the two were so deeply involved that Zufari had gone to Syria and visited with Ghawji’s family. This past Wednesday, Zufari’s sister confirmed in a comment on a Facebook post that at one point they were even engaged to be married, but claims “their relationship didn’t last for other reasons” after the court trial had ended.

 

According to point 20 of her lawsuit against Zufari, Rosine alleges that throughout the affair Zufari was aware of her ex-husband’s extremist beliefs, and was even complicit in the plan to radicalize Ghawji’s two children, Louis and Tarek “K.K.” Ghawji.

 

 

When asked to respond to the situation and Zufari’s ties to radical Islam, Rollins College spokeswoman Jo Marie Hebeler said the following in a statement:

 

Rollins College is welcoming and respectful of all religious and cultural beliefs. As an institution of higher education, we value and encourage diversity of opinions and respectful discourse. In accordance with FERPA and our institutional policies, it is our responsibility to respect the privacy and confidentiality of all involved in this incident, students and faculty alike. The safety and fair treatment of all members of our campus community is of utmost concern.”

 

Rollins College stated there will be no further comment on the situation. READ ENTIRETY (PROF. AT ROLLINS COLLEGE INVOLVED IN SUSPENDING CHRISTIAN STUDENT HAS TIES TO ISLAMIC EXTREMISTS; By Will Nardi and Zach Swaim; FrontPageMag.com; 4/4/17)

 

Ergo the Rollins College multicultural diversity policy means the college looks the other way when Islamic terrorist supporting apply for employment. YOU have to wonder if the college has other Islamic terrorist supporting staff under their employ?

 

Marshal Polston had his suspension lifted after only a week. AND Islamic terrorist supporting Areej Zufari has voluntarily resigned as a Professor at Rollins College.

 

And yet Rollins College insists Polston did not get suspended for arguing with Areej Zufari. Rather the college claims Polston was suspended for social media disrespect and vulgarity against college staff. The only proof of such disrespect and vulgarity is an email sent to Zufari complaining of receiving a failing grade for disagreeing with her facts. I found the email at WND:

 

We need to talk as soon as possible over phone or in your office because you have been extremely unfair to me and pursuit a ruthless program of hostility in your recent grading simply due to the fact that I disagree with you on your inherent bias and clandestine theological apologies. I’m actually a nice person but not when I’m viciously attacked. I’d be just as happy to go to the dean about this issue.

 

I’m emailing you about the first essay in your Rollins class. You recently failed me with a 52% despite the fact that I followed all the guidelines listed, covered all the topics and asked you directly about the problem areas. I specifically asked you about sources in person as a result of your request that the paper be an analysis and not research. Everything I wrote came from personal memory and research or first hand experience in my travels with the government, personal visits with friends, teaching experiences or philanthropic efforts in the Middle East.

 

Quite frankly the grade you assigned to me exposes your a true agenda which is to silence me in class. As I told you before I’m not interested in speaking anymore. But since you’ve decided to carry a blitzkrieg out against me, I may have to speak up in regards to your extreme bias and not necessarily to the class but to the dean. You’re one of the most incompetent professors I have ever seen in my entire life.

 

It’s very clear you have absolutely no idea what you’re talking about. You may have a college degree but you belong in a reform school.

 

First you conflate the immaculate conception and virgin birth which are totally different. Then you state that middle eastern Jews were Sephardic when in fact they are mostly Mizrahi Sephardic Jews only emigrated from Spain to North Africa and Istanbul and we’re NEVER native.

 

I could go on and on and on. Everybody knows that you’re a failure as a Professor — Rest assured I’m not the only one!!! I have dozens of examples to pull from that I’ve noticed during the class.

 

I think it’s great to be a theological apologist but not in a secular setting — I don’t know whether this was just a mistake or not so I’ll give you the benefit of the doubt. In order to stop a textual embarrassment in the Quran from coming to light in class you proceeded to ignore the facts when I asked a pertinent question about Mohammed. He had an adopted son which divorced his wife so he could marry him and although you finally admitted it was twisted, it took until I looked up the verse that you believed me.

 

Your bias is blatantly evident in your misinformation about the historical Jesus and moreover manifested in the lack of discussion about Wellhausen’s documentary hypothesis (with you taking the theological position that Moses wrote the first five books of the Torah). No one takes either position that you gave in the archaeological or secular biblical fields.

 

Also your brainwashing session about sharia law at the United States of Rollins ignores what the vast majority of people in countries like Egypt and Iraq really believe in regards to misogyny, homophobia or religious freedom.

 

I agree that sharia law can be reformed but in the context of the seventh century, let’s not jump to utopian conclusions about sharia law’s original implementation in society. I understand that you are much more liberal Muslim which is great but quite frankly it astonishes me your hypocrisy. On the one hand you report me to the dean for correcting you while you were indoctrinating students with false information. On the other hand a Muslim student in class cracks a joke about chopping someone’s body parts off and you do nothing. Yes I have witnesses – I’m not the only one who has a concern about your agenda and overt bias. [Blog Editor’s bold text]

 

It’s really cowardly of you to shut me down in the middle of class or lie to the dean but I should be careful when saying that because that would be insulting to cowards. There’s something seriously wrong and depraved about you when you think my intellectual conversation is more threatening than the despicable comments about decapitation made by the student in question! SICK! [Blog Editor’s bold text]

 

I hope we don’t have to escalate this issue and you’ll stop this crusade against me. I would really hate to get in contact with some national media personalities that I’m good friends with but I’m going to have to take it there or pursue legal options if you don’t stop your harassment toward me.

 

Hmm I see an upset student over an unjust/undeserving failing grade AND NOTHING physically threatening, disrespectful or vulgar. Since Rollins College multicultural diversity policy does not preclude hiring Islamic terrorist supporters, it is not surprising the college uses an age old Islamic tenet in fabricating a suspension reason – Taqiyya (aka Lying).

 

The ACT for America is taking its share of credit for Areej Zufari resigning, but says nothing of Marshall Polston’s reinstatement. ACT uses the email as a fundraiser. Give or not, that’s up to you. ACT for America is a worthy cause if you have the extra cash.

 

Well, to make this post lengthier, I am cross posting ACT’s email followed by The Blaze’s update on Marshall Polston. Those are the two sources I initially read that chapped my hide about Rollins College’s idiotic multicultural diversity policy.

Thanks to you, radical Islamic Professor Areej Zufari has resigned from Rollins College.

 

After being caught red handed indoctrinating students, and slandering one who stood up to her radical agenda, Marshall Polston, ACT for America came to the rescue.

 

Zufari was on the FBI terror watch list for connections to a co-conspirator in the first WTC bombing, and was an explicit anti-Semite.

ACT for America mobilized its grassroots army to bombard the college with tens of thousands of emails and calls demanding the reinstatement of Marshall Polston and the firing of the radical professors. We made life so difficult for her and the college, she resigned on her own.

 

Chalk up another victory for our grassroots machine, which continues to grow in both size and influence.

 

We want to thank you for standing by our side in this fight to identify, expose, and remove radical Islamic Professors from college campuses across the country.

 

At ACT for America, we don’t just talk about the threats facing our nation, we ACT to eradicate them.

 

Let this be a lesson that your phone calls matter. Your emails matter. Your voice matters, and together, we are going to make America a safer place to call home.

Muslim prof accused by Christian student of saying Jesus’ crucifixion is a hoax resigns from college

A Muslim professor at a small Florida college has resigned after a bitter dispute with a Christian student which included theological dust-ups, angry emails, a police report, a suspension for the student — and a reversal of the suspension — all of which made national headlines.

 

The professor, Areej Zufari, wanted 20-year-old sophomore Marshall Polston out of her Middle Eastern humanities class at Rollins College after doing battle with him for most of the spring semester. Polston accused her of saying Jesus’ crucifixion is a hoax and that his disciples didn’t believe he is God — but that wasn’t his only issue.

 

In an email to Zufari after receiving a failing grade on an essay, Polston wrote “you report me to the dean for correcting you while you were indoctrinating students with false information. On the other hand a Muslim student in class cracks a joke about chopping someone’s body parts off and you do nothing.”

 

The controversy spread beyond the private liberal arts school in Winter Park, which received thousands of angry messages about the professor.

 

The school’s President Grant Cornwell told the Orlando Sentinel that Zufari quit “because of the hateful threats and emails and phones messages she was getting. I think it’s a terrible injustice, but I do respect her decision.”

 

In addition, Cornwall told the paper that Polston’s suspension in late March — which was rescinded after a week — wasn’t over his theological dispute with Zufari but because of his “vulgar” and “mean-spirited” Facebook comments to another student. The president added to the Sentinel that since Polston’s posts didn’t constitute a specific threat, he was reinstated.

 

However, Polston’s reinstatement letter from Rollins College says his behavior was connected to more than just a single student, noting he had been “aggressive, disrespectful, and at times, vulgar in multiple verbal and electronic communications with faculty, staff and students.”

 

Cornwall’s revelation about Polston’s “vulgar” and “mean-spirited” Facebook comments was the the first time the school gave its reason for the suspension, the Sentinel reported, adding that the school wouldn’t comment earlier, citing student privacy laws.

 

But at the time, Cornwall did insist the school “never ever ever” would suspend a student simply for disagreeing with a professor.

 

Polston’s attorney Kenneth Lewis told the Sentinel the Facebook post was “nothing” and “a total joke” — and that the classroom dispute was the real reason for his client’s suspension.

 

Before Polston’s suspension, Zufari sought an injunction against him for “protection against stalking,” the paper said, citing court records — but she withdrew the injunction request last week.

 

Cornwell added to the Sentinel that school officials interviewed other students in Zufari’s class who disputed Polston’s allegations — and that the school decided his failing grade was appropriate after reviewing Polston’s essay.

 

“I was upset, understandably,” Polston told the Central Florida Post about his failing grade. “I’ve never gotten anything less than straight As, so I was really interested in figuring out how to possibly improve or at least understand the grade.”

 

In 2013, Rollins College kicked InterVarsity Christian Fellowship off campus because the student group required its leaders to be Christian and promote certain conservative beliefs, the Sentinel reported, which constituted a violation of the school’s anti-discrimination policy.

 

This story has been updated.

Yurki1000 sent a cross post to a Stand4Life email that was supportive David Daleiden and Sandra Merritt who are being prosecuted in California for exposing Planned Parenthood use of live birth killing of babies to use their body parts for research.

 

Since then Yurki1000 has commented twice on the post.

 

The first comment is AFA alert on boycotting Target on their support for Transgender bathroom rights and homosexual marriage.

 

The last comment is a Pro-Life issue sent out by NPLA. The issue an unborn child, two-days before his due date, was killed by a drunk driver. There was no prosecution because the baby was not considered a person. Hence the NPLA supports the Life at Conception Act. An unborn child is as much a person as any man or woman.

 

Below are two comment he has posted to date.

Thanks John 😊

AFA sends me email:

 

– Dear Jyrki,

 

In April 2016, Target Corporation announced its stores would begin allowing men free access to the same restrooms and changing rooms as little girls. American Family Association immediately launched a boycott Target pledge which has garnered nearly 1.4 million signatures.

 

Target’s decision is unacceptable for families, and their dangerous and misguided policy continues to put women and children in harm’s way.

 

It is urgent the Target boycott reach 1.5 million signers by the end of April. At that point, I will personally return to Minneapolis with an additional 500,000 names. I will then discuss how Target can invite 1.5 million AFA supporters back to their stores by having a common sense bathroom and dressing room policy that links use of these rooms to a person’s biological sex.

 

Help us reach the 1.5 million signature mark.

 

If you haven’t signed the boycott pledge, please sign it today!

 

If you have signed the pledge, please forward this email to your family and friends.

 

Most important: Share this information with your Sunday School class and encourage them to sign the pledge at http://www.afa.net/target.

 

If our mission resonates with you, please consider supporting our work financially with a tax-deductible donation. The easiest way to do that is through online giving. It is easy to use, and most of all, it is secure.

From NPLA:

 

– Dear Jyrki,

 

Little Brady Surovik was the long awaited 8 pound 2 oz. child of Heather Surovik, but tragically little Brady’s life was suddenly snuffed out by a drunk driver in Colorado on July 5th, 2012.

 

Under Colorado law the drunk driver would normally be charged with vehicular homicide.

 

Yet Colorado prosecutors refused to bring any charges against the driver.

 

Why you ask?

 

You see Brady was two days away from birth.

 

Colorado state law prevented charging the drunk driver because the law stated Brady was not yet “a person.”

 

For the lack of a mere two days, the drunk driver literally got away scot-free.

 

You and I know there is no difference between an unborn and a born baby; just differences in size and weight.

 

Though this drunk driver may have got away with taking one innocent life; abortionists have been getting away with taking over a million lives every year for 44 years.

 

Of course laws against drunk driving will never completely end the slaughter on the highways. But together you and I can end the long lived slaughter that is abortion.

 

That is why your National Pro-Life Alliance is committed to passing a Life at Conception Act in Congress to overturn Roe v. Wade and define that life begins at conception.

 

Again I thank you for all you do.

 

For Life,

President Trump clearly and accurately branded Hillary Clinton as “Crooked Hillary” during his winning campaign for POTUS. Then voters in a majority of States were wise enough to understand Crooked Hillary cover-ups of Classified data on a private email server was occurring. I am convinced the FBI, the Intel Community and Obama Administration operatives aided in that cover-up.

 

THEN Wikileakswhether with Russian help, private hackers or insider whistleblowers – exposed the crookedness of the Hillary campaign in her staff and in the Dem Party itself.

 

Then a release of a book exposing Pay for Play money scandal from foreign donors to Clinton family charitable foundation for political favors while Crooked Hillary was Secretary of State.

 

One could also meld all the scandals that slipped mysteriously away like Teflon associated with both Bill and Crooked Hillary as a taint to her 2016 candidacy.

 

ALL this put together I find it incredulous that the popular vote spread (officially yet suspiciously) favored Crooked Hillary! Thank God for the Founding Fathers’ wisdom of the Electoral College levelling the play field between populous States and less populous States!

 

AND SO, it is also becoming clearer – to the horrified denial of Dem rank-and-file – that President Barack Hussein was also spying on pre-election Trump, post-election (lame duck period) and on other Americans. To what end? OBVIOUSLY to manipulate a Crooked Hillary victory to maintain the nefarious fundamental Obama-transformation of America into an unconstitutional Leftist Living Constitution nation with socially liberal values.

Adam Housley, who broke the major Fox report on the surveillance of the Trump team by the Obama administration, is now dropping some more information.

 

Check this tweet out.

 

What he’s saying is that Congress is investigating whether other people, and not just the Trump team, were being spied on by the Obama administration.

 

Who might that include?

 

Adam Housley was on The O’Reilly Factor this evening. He said that the Congressional investigation is expanding. He said they are looking into who else the Obama administration may have unmasked, “Including politicians,” and how their information may have been collected.

 

O’Reilly Video: What Is The Status Of The Susan Rice Investigation?

 

Housley reported that Congress is upset with the FBI and the NSA because they haven’t been turning over the information that Congress has requested. It’s been four weeks and they have not responded to 100 questions submitted to both FBI Director James Comey and NSA Director Mike Rogers. Nor has Comey returned to the Congress to testify.

 

He also noted the Congress members are saying that the FBI and the other intelligence agencies better comply or the 702 program which allows them to be able to do surveillance is not going to be authorized by Congress.

As defenders of freedom in our constitutional republic, it is our mission and duty to steer the country away from the false promises of progressivism and advocate a smaller government of moral absolutes and individual responsibility.

 

In a technological era driven fiercely by the mainstream media, we believe that those who vocalize a true conservative message are slanted as intolerant, racist, bible and gun clinging, corporate fat cats who could not care less about the environment nor the well being of their fellow man. Young Conservatives offers articles and videos that prove otherwise. We have a mission to spread the love and logic surrounding true conservatism.

 

In a day where conservatives are seen as close-minded and archaic, Young Conservatives bring a new perspective to a long-standing philosophy. Our generation will — one way or another — make decisions that will directly affect a rapidly aging and needy population and an exploding, unsustainable national debt.

 

We feel the moral obligation to intervene against those who abandon our founding principles and embrace the comfortable, but deceptive ideals of moral relativism, victim identification and outcome equivalence.

For those of you buying the Sarin attack is a false flag hoax, the Trump Administration is declassifying the evidence from whence sarin was loaded at Shayrat Airfield on Su-22 fixed-wing aircraft. Flown over Khan Shaykhun and released on the civilian residents.

 

There is even the appearance that – SURPRISE – Russia and Iran has spreading disinformation about the sarin attack. This would be where conspiracy theorists have picked up false flag data and then proceeded to spread the Russian/Iranian propaganda.

 

The U.S. has confirmed the agent used in the attack was sarin, from testing on the victims and from symptom reports as well as "leakage around the actual weapon that we think the sarin came from." Emergency personnel suffered exposure symptoms from coming into contact with contaminated victims.”

 

The above quote is from PJ Media article that I am cross posting below.

White House: 'Massive' Evidence Shows Sarin Came from Assad Base

 

By BRIDGET JOHNSON

APRIL 11, 2017

PJ Media

WASHINGTON -- White House officials said today that the U.S. has amassed a mountain of evidence confirming that Syrian President Bashar al-Assad used sarin against the town of Khan Shaykhun last week, and indicated they're still trying to determine if Russia knew about the attack beforehand.

 

A declassified summary of the intelligence report on the attack that killed dozens and injured hundreds one week ago today found that the Syrian and Russian assertion that the nerve agent must have come from terrorist or rebel forces also has no basis in fact.

 

New information coming in "continues to be clear and consistent with our understanding of the attack," a senior White House official told reporters on background today.

 

The declassified information was compiled from open-source materials ranging from videos to on-the-ground accounts, geospatial intelligence, U.S. signals intelligence, and physiological samples from attack victims.

 

The attack came from Su-22 fixed-wing aircraft out of the Shayrat airfield hit in subsequent U.S. strikes, the report says; the planes were in the Khan Shaykhun area for 20 minutes before the first report of a chemical attack came in, and left soon after. The administration also has "information that suggest that personnel historically associated with the chemical weapons program were at Shayrat airfield in late March preparing for this attack," and these people were there again on the day of the attack.

 

The U.S. has confirmed the agent used in the attack was sarin, from testing on the victims and from symptom reports as well as "leakage around the actual weapon that we think the sarin came from." Emergency personnel suffered exposure symptoms from coming into contact with contaminated victims.

 

A hospital treating attack victims was struck by conventional weapons about six hours after the chemical attack.

 

On hoax theories, the White House official said the "absolute massive data we have in all the different vehicles -- we've gotten it from open-source videos, to victim accounts, to imagery, to signals intelligence, is just too massive for really any -- any intelligence organization to fabricate in that short a period of time; we just think that's not a feasible explanation." Intel agencies have confirmed that videos distributed of the attack were filmed at the time and in the locations claimed.

 

"Across the board starting in 2013 [with the Ghouta sarin attack] and then since, we've seen both the Russians and the Syrians have a very clear campaign to try to obfuscate the nature of attacks, the attackers, and what has happened at any particular incident," the official said.

 

"They've thrown out a bunch of potential agents, a bunch of potential responsible or accountable parties. And often their own information is inconsistent with their own narrative. They certainly have dismissed the allegations of a chemical attack in Khan Shaykhun. They called it a 'prank of a provocative nature.' But again, we don't think it's remotely possible for the Syrians or the Russians to have fabricated this much information so fast and so consistently on this attack."

 

The official added that the Russian theory that a conventional regime strike hit a chemical weapons depot is "inconsistent" with the facts, stressing terrorist groups or rebels are not known to have sarin and "we don't see a building, again, with that chemical residue we would expect if the Russian narrative was true." The chemical weapon landed in the middle of a street.

 

It's "quite clear to us, that in this case, this is not a terrorist holding of sarin, or a terrorist use of sarin, but we do know that the Syrian regime has sarin," the official said.

 

Another official said the White House is "still looking into what we think the intelligence-community assessment or other is about Russian knowledge of, involvement, etc."

 

The official said there's "not a consensus on our side" yet "about the extent or how to interpret the information that we have and continue to get," adding that historically and especially in the past two years of conflict Russia and Syria are two militaries that "operate very closely, even down to an operational and a tactical level."

 

"And so considering the fact that there were Russian forces co-located with Syrian forces at the Shayrat airfield in addition to many other installations -- many other Syrian regime installations around the country," the official added. "We do think that it is a question worth asking the Russians about how is it possible that their forces were co-located with the Syrian forces that planned, prepared, and carried out chemical weapons attack at the same installation and did not have foreknowledge."

 

"...We don't know the tactical intentions of the Russians on that day, on any operations that they may have been involved in."

 

The officials would not comment on the existence of any U.S. signals intelligence that would indicate collusion between the Russians and Syrians or a direct order from Assad to attack the town.

 

The first White House official said they "take very seriously the possibility that Syria may have additional agents elsewhere" and are "working with our intelligence community to understand every piece of information they have about where such munitions might be located, who might be a hold of them."

 

"And I can tell you that that's going to be part of what we try to figure out, where we go from here."

 

Officials theorized that the chemical weapons strike was conducted because, even though a civilian neighborhood was the target, Khan Shaykhun was one of the support areas in the rear of the opposition front lines advancing on Hama since March. The city includes a key airbase for Assad's forces.

 

"At that point, the regime, we think, calculated that with its manpower spread quite think trying to support both defensive operations and consolidation operations in Aleppo and along that north-south spine of western Syria, and also trying to support operations which required it to send manpower and resources east toward Palmyra, we believe that the regime probably calculated at that point that chemical weapons were necessary in order to try to make up for the manpower deficiency," an official said.

 

"...We believe certainly that there were -- there was an operational calculus that the regime and perhaps its Russian advisers went through in terms of the decision-making."

A Facebook friend sent me a video entitled, ‘MUST WATCH: Black Eyed "Beings" Terrify Family’. The narrator reads a little from a gal that had an encounter with Black-eyed Beings. Here description reminded me of a sci-fi show I used to watch on the Fox Network – Fringe.

 

As you watch the video, depending on your age, you will be reminded of the Twilight Zone when hear the narrator’s voice behind a darkened photo.

 

Is it real or delusion? Watch, decide and perhaps – be wary.

Intro to ‘The Only Moral Choice

John R. Houk Editor

By Justin O. Smith

Posted 4/10/17

 

Syria is an enigma to American Foreign Policy, National Interests and National Security. Just about any action along a policy choice is a damned if we do or damned if we don’t.

 

There is no doubt that Bashar Assad is a brutal and nefarious dictator that butchers the Sunni majority in his nation. YET much of the Sunni majority is fractured under the control of Islamic terrorist entities that are just as if not more so brutal than Assad. AND the Sunni rebel militias that claim no affiliation to the Islamic terrorists are less organized and/or unreliable in their moderate assertions.

 

Military action taken by President Trump against the Assad controlled airbase that launched a chemical weapon attack on the civilians of Khan Sheikhoun was quite proportional as a warning against continued chemical WMD attacks.

 

AND YET Syria took advantage of Russia and Iran’s version of a redline warning against the U.S. claiming (or pretending) they’d retaliate for their little/widdle client if more military action is forthcoming.

 

I do like Justin Smith’s analysis of the Syrian enigma as relating President Trump’s proportional response to a chemical weapon attack.

The Only Moral Choice

 

By Justin O. Smith

Sent 4/9/2017 1:29 PM

 

Making the only moral choice and protecting the United States vital interests, President Donald Trump ordered the first direct U.S. attack on Syria in six years, in response to Syrian President Bashar Assad's use of a sarin gas nerve-agent on his own people and the images of little children dying and foaming at the mouth, on April 6th 2017. While President Trump seemed to act solely out of humanitarian concern, his decision sent a clear message around the world and to all America's enemies, that the United States is back, strong as it ever once was, and willing to act with its military might should it prove necessary.

 

On Tuesday, April 4th, U.S. and foreign intelligence agencies tracked Syrian SU-22 jets leaving Al Shayrat Airbase, for Idlib Province, where one jet dropped a sarin bomb in the middle of Kahn Sheikhoun. Eighty-seven people were killed, including 26 children, and 546 more were deathly sick and injured.

 

Approximately 600,000 Syrians have been killed by conventional warfare in the Syrian Civil War, but Assad's use of sarin changed the entire world's view of the situation. The horrors of chemical weapons used in WWI have long convinced civilized nations to ban their use through treaties such as the Chemical Weapons Convention, because they kill everyone within range in a most horrific manner.

 

Unlike former President Obama, whose fear created failed policies, President Trump did something tangible to respond to Assad's atrocities, even after Russia warned the United States against any strike on Syria at the United Nations, and at 8:40 p.m. EST 59 Tomahawk cruise missiles were launched from the destroyers USS Ross and USS Porter. They hit Al Shayrat's infrastructure in Homs Province, air defense systems and ammunition bunkers, and they destroyed approximately 25 aircraft of the 7th Wing of the Syrian Air Force.

 

After the cruise missile strikes, President Trump stated: "No child of God should suffer such horror. ... It is in this vital national security interest of the United States to prevent and deter the spread and use of deadly chemical weapons. ... We pray ... for the souls of those who passed ... Good night and God Bless America and the entire world."

 

Most of the world's nations embraced President Trump's missile strike as a necessary move, and Prime Minister Theresa May's office said the action was "an appropriate response to the barbaric chemical weapons attack." France, Italy and Israel also welcomed the strikes.

 

Israel's Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said: "President Trump sent a strong and clear message today that the use and spread of chemical weapons will not be tolerated. Israel fully supports President Trump's decision and hopes that this message of resolve in the face of the Assad regime's horrific actions will resonate not only in Damascus, but Tehran, Pyongyang and elsewhere."

 

While an originalist reading of Constitution has many in the public and in Congress questioning President Trump's authority to use immediate military force to counter foreign threats, President Trump's action against Assad's heinous sarin attack, undertaken as a second step to prevent the spread and repeated use of chemical weapons, is perfectly consistent with the Constitution, especially so, since U.S. troops are in nearby proximity. In the relevant part of the War Powers Act passed by Congress in 1973, the President is permitted to launch a military act on his own, as long as he notifies or consults Congress within 48 hours. Trump acted within these guidelines.

 

However, America would do well to recall that U.S. Presidents like Jimmy Carter, Bill Clinton and Barack Obama are responsible for the rise of the Islamofascists, like the Ayatollah Khomeini and the subsequent Iranian nuclear program, embedding Hamas in the Palestinian territories; and most recently, Obama and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton pushed the Arab [Islamic, Muslim Brotherhood, Al Qaeda] Spring and their "democracy" initiative, which has toppled one strong man after another, undoing the entire Middle East and paving the way for the Islamic State in both Iraq and Syria and creating general chaos.

 

Without oil resources, Syria has never really been of too much concern to the United States, other than being a thorn in our side due to its alliance with Iran, support of Islamofascist Hezbollah and Hamas terrorists and its own pursuit of nuclear weapons, confirmed in 2007. It doesn't seek to control the Persian Gulf or dominate the region, unlike Iran.

 

It should be noted here, that generals of the Iranian Revolutionary Guard have said they stand prepared to retaliate against America for its strike on Al Shayrat. They claim to have thousands of Iranian "sleeper agents" in the U.S. just waiting for a call to arms.

 

Assad's opposition is primarily the Islamofascists of the Muslim Brotherhood and the Islamic State, and if they gain control of Syria, the country and its people will face even more heinous atrocities. The Syrian Free Army is no much better, being comprised of anti-American, pro-Hamas Muslims, who are content to accept U.S. funding, if it can place them in control of Syria.

 

Due to the Muslim Brotherhood's own brutal nature, their brutality has been met with extreme overkill measures, since the Baath Party rose to power in Syria in 1963. In 1982, a Sunni Islamist rebellion was murderously crushed by Bashar's father, Hafez Assad, that left 20,000 people dead. Bashar's insane use of sarin gas is the last crime against humanity by a desperate despot.

 

Prior to the uprising in Deraa [aka Daraa] in March 2011, Syria had become a proper nation-state with a sense of Saryana (Syrianhood) that had never before existed, and it was evident it Syria's literature, television, journalism and its own version of Arabic. Assad's regime had improved access to higher education and health care services, and he had helped to create a new urban middle class with Western-style political aspirations. Agriculture and handicraft industries had revived and were unrestrained by the government. And the Christian population flourished under Assad's secular authoritarian regime. This all changed through international interference.

 

Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said President Vladimir Putin views the U.S. strike as an "aggression against a sovereign state in violation of international law [that] deals a significant blow to Russia-U.S. relations".

 

Just how wonderful has Russia turning a blind-eye to Syria's sarin stock been for U.S.-Russia relations? Russia supposedly assisted in the destruction of Assad's chemical weapons stores, but since 2015, Russia has repeatedly obfuscated evidence of new chemical attacks by Assad's regime.

 

A few hours before the strike, United Nations Ambassador Nikki Haley stated: "Russia cannot escape responsibility for this. They chose to close their eyes to the barbarity. They defied the conscience of the world."

 

Both America's and Russia's interests center more on ending the Syrian Civil War than on any one particular political future for Damascus; but, the sarin attacks have renewed calls for Assad's removal. Of greater importance, the focus of America and the free world and Russia must be unified on eradicating the Islamic State [Daesh] and the Islamofascists who are destabilizing the entire region.

 

President Trump acted contrary to the popular consensus and what most presidents would have done. He attacked Syria solely for humanitarian reasons. Now he must clearly articulate the mission ahead and America's interests in this war, since there isn't any nation with the capacity to fix Syria's problems. Getting rid of Assad will most assuredly be hard and have serious consequences, but America's new, strong and determined President Trump has shown his willingness to effectively counter the world's dictators, and he will not tolerate egregious, inhuman chemical weapons attacks on innocent civilians.

STAND4LIFE sends me email. Would you spread the word please?

 

– Planned Parenthood is pure evil. They make billions of dollars every year by murdering pre-born children and then selling their dismembered body parts to the highest bidder. And on top of it all, they receive $500 million of OUR taxpayer dollars every year!

 

We can end it, my friend. We can fight for justice for David and Sarah. We can defund the butchers at Planned Parenthood and end the slaughter of innocent, pre-born children.

 

If you’re ready to join the fight, please do so right now by signing Operation Rescue’s national petition.

 

And please, please urge your friends and family members to do the same. We need as many pro-life allies as possible to show the radical abortion lobby that we will keep fighting for the unborn!

 

Thank you, and God bless you.

Marriage & Divorce Among Christians

An Intro to Shamim’s ‘MoHR Purposed Amendments in Christian Marriage and Divorce Acts’

 

Intro by John R. Houk

© April 8, 2017 (Intro- JRH & ‘MoHR Purposed -SM)

 

Shamim Mahmood (Masih) addresses marriage and divorce reforms for Christians in the Pakistan legal code. The tenor of Shamim’s report is to bring Pakistan law into the 21st century with a focus on women’s rights pertaining to marriage and divorce.

 

I’m a bit old fashioned choosing to agree with the New Testament:

 

Matthew 5:31-32; 1 Corinthians 7: 10-16 (NKJV)

 

Marriage Is Sacred and Binding

 

31 “Furthermore it has been said, ‘Whoever divorces his wife, let him give her a certificate of divorce.’ 32 But I say to you that whoever divorces his wife for any reason except sexual immorality[a] causes her to commit adultery; and whoever marries a woman who is divorced commits adultery.

 

Footnotes:

 

a Matthew 5:32 Or fornication

 

Keep Your Marriage Vows

 

10 Now to the married I command, yet not I but the Lord: A wife is not to depart from her husband. 11 But even if she does depart, let her remain unmarried or be reconciled to her husband. And a husband is not to divorce his wife.

 

12 But to the rest I, not the Lord, say: If any brother has a wife who does not believe, and she is willing to live with him, let him not divorce her. 13 And a woman who has a husband who does not believe, if he is willing to live with her, let her not divorce him. 14 For the unbelieving husband is sanctified by the wife, and the unbelieving wife is sanctified by the husband; otherwise your children would be unclean, but now they are holy. 15 But if the unbeliever departs, let him depart; a brother or a sister is not under bondage in such cases. But God has called us to peace. 16 For how do you know, O wife, whether you will save your husband? Or how do you know, O husband, whether you will save your wife?

 

In full disclosure, I have been divorced. My first wife divorced me because my Christian beliefs did not coincide with the lifestyle she desired to live. I remarried in 1990 and have had a long happy Marriage to this very day (minus a few marital spats along the way).

 

Now addressing the issue of domestic wife and child abuse/battery. I definitely do advocate a married remain together when one inflicts violence upon another, even though the New Testament does not provide for consequences for such marital abuse for either the husband or the wife.

 

However, the New Testament has commands for the way a married life is to be conducted:

 

1 Corinthians 7: 2-5 (NKJV)

 

2 Nevertheless, because of sexual immorality, let each man have his own wife, and let each woman have her own husband. 3 Let the husband render to his wife the affection due her, and likewise also the wife to her husband. 4 The wife does not have authority over her own body, but the husband does. And likewise the husband does not have authority over his own body, but the wife does. 5 Do not deprive one another except with consent for a time, that you may give yourselves to fasting and prayer; and come together again so that Satan does not tempt you because of your lack of self-control.

 

All you husbands need to read the above verses to make sure there is no misunderstanding about how to treat one’s wife in these next verses:

 

Ephesians 5:22-29 - ff (NKJV)

 

22 Wives, submit to your own husbands, as to the Lord. 23 For the husband is head of the wife, as also Christ is head of the church; and He is the Savior of the body. 24 Therefore, just as the church is subject to Christ, so let the wives be to their own husbands in everything.

 

25 Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ also loved the church and gave Himself for her, 26 that He might sanctify and cleanse her with the washing of water by the word, 27 that He might present her to Himself a glorious church, not having spot or wrinkle or any such thing, but that she should be holy and without blemish. 28 So husbands ought to love their own wives as their own bodies; he who loves his wife loves himself. 29 For no one ever hated his own flesh, but nourishes and cherishes it, just as the Lord does the church.

 

There is no room for wife beaters among Christians. Adultery and unbelievers appears to be the principles behind divorce. BUT, if you are a man of God DO NOT allow a man to beat on his wife even if you must take matters in your own hands. Even if taking action means you at the very least call upon the rule of law to take care of a wife beater.

 

Ok, I know this is an American perspective. I can only imagine how women are treated in a Muslim dominated nation like Pakistan. Christians definitely need the law to be on their side in greater context in the Islamic Republic of Pakistan. Below, Shamim address marriage and divorce in Pakistan.

MoHR Purposed Amendments in Christian Marriage and Divorce Acts

 

By Shamim Mahmood

Sent 4/7/2017 10:46 PM

ISLAMABAD: Christian leadership agreed to bring reforms in the Marriage and Divorce acts to protect women rights. The clergy, parliamentarians and civil society have agreed to bring amendments to Christian Marriages Act 1872 and the Divorce Acts of 1869 of the constitutions of Pakistan.

 

A national level consultation of religious leaders, civil society and Christian parliamentarians was held to discuss Christian Marriage and divorce Acts. Senator Kamran Michael, Federal Minster for Human Rights stated that the Government is aware of the need for greater protection and promotion of minority rights whether it is legislation, education, health, nutrition or violence against them. He informed that Christian Family matters among the Christian community are dealt with by the Christian Marriages Act of 1872 and the Divorce Act of 1869. Since both the Acts are centuries old and need to be reviewed as certain provisions became outdated; they smack of colonial rule. Talking to the UCANews Senator Kamran Michael said the incumbent government is committed to protect the rights of every citizens of Pakistan especially women, children and minorities [Similar Thought Pakistan Point]. He said to facilitate the Christian community across the country, Ministry of Human Rights (MoHR) [MoHR update from Pakistan Today 3/19/17] has obtained Resolutions from Provincial Governments of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa and Baluchistan to regulate matter pertaining to Christian Marriage and divorce. He also referred first national consultation held in August 2016 wherein the same bills were thoroughly examined.

 

Mr. Sharafat Ali Chaudhry, Legal consultant, MoHR presented the Bill and stated that in these drafts, it has been proposed that the registration of marriage will be responsibility of the State and solemnization will be done by the Church. Age of marriage both for male and female has been proposed to be 18 years, and both male and female must be from Christian background, he further informed. Under the present applicable law of Christian Divorce Act 1869, there is only one ground of divorce available which is raising allegations against the chastity of the spouse, however, in the proposed draft, other grounds of the divorce have been proposed for the parties.

 

A Legal Consultant pointed out difference of opinion among different Christian religious communities. A detail discussion was held and it was proposed that more consultations are needed to have a unified legislation. It was also proposed that Representatives of National Database & Registration Authority (NADRA) may also be invited during next consultations as registration of marriages is responsibility of NADRA and Christian community is facing problem in getting marriage certificates.

 

A detailed discussion was also held to discuss amendments in divorce. It was informed that there has been a bill in the national assembly related to health issues wherein amendment has also been proposed in the Christian Bills. Legal consultant elaborated ground for divorce and raised the issue that mental and physical illness as well as cruelty shall be included in the grounds for divorce. Numbers of ground were proposed by the participants in view of current changed social, economic and cultural situations.

 

Senator Kamran Michael stated that the law is for Christian community and all denomination shall unanimously approve it. He was of the view that there shall not be amendments which are in contradiction to the Bible, however, clergy may like to consider different options and grounds for divorce. He further purposed another consultation meeting in Islamabad next month wherein the amendment proposed during current meeting will be discussed.

Mark Tapson writes a combination review of a book and a promotion for speaking engagement. The combo relates to Nonie Darwish, a former Muslim that converted to Christianity. The book is entitled “Wholly Different: Why I Chose Biblical Values Over Islamic Values”. The speaking engagement has passed as it was scheduled for April 6, 2017.

 

You can tell from the book title that Ms. Darwish provides a very effective contrast between Christian-Biblical values and Islamic values. I haven’t read the book yet, but it sounds like an excellent tool for a Christian to have to combat Muslim Apologists and Multiculturalist Leftists.

NONIE DARWISH DEMOLISHES FALSE EQUIVALENCE BETWEEN CHRISTIANITY AND ISLAM

Her new book clarifies which is the real “Religion of Peace.”

For readers in the Southern California area, Nonie Darwish will be speaking on her new book Wholly Different: Why I Chose Biblical Values Over Islamic Values this Thursday, April 6, at the Four Seasons in Beverly Hills from 11:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. Get more information on the event and your tickets here.

 

Several years ago I was expressing to a friend of mine what I assumed was the undeniable fact that the world has an Islam problem. Her kneejerk response, ingrained by years of Progressive indoctrination, was, “But don’t you think Christianity is just as bad?”

 

Tragically, this continues to be the instinct among the multiculturalist multitudes in the West: a reflexive defense of Islam and an equally swift condemnation of Christianity. As jihad in all its forms – violent, cultural, legal – advances in the West, willfully blind defenders of Islam keep insisting that it is one of the world’s great Abrahamic religions, that all religions have extremists, and that, if anything, the colonialism and intolerance of the Christian West is the bigger problem. Our cultural elites demonize and fear-monger about the Christian right in ways they would never dream of characterizing Muslims.

 

Meanwhile Islam’s presence multiplies across the West as Christianity’s diminishes. To cite just one example: Giulio Meotti at the Gatestone Institute reports that since 2001, London alone has lost 500 churches of all denominations, with 423 new mosques springing up to replace them. As we face the momentum of an Islamized West in the future, the question “Isn’t Christianity just as bad?” has become one of paramount, existential importance.

 

Nonie Darwish, a former Muslim and now Christian convert, demolishes that moral equivalence in her new book Wholly Different: Why I Chose Biblical Values Over Islamic Values. She has proven in the past with her books Now They Call Me Infidel, Cruel and Usual Punishment, and The Devil We Don’t Know that she is a fearless crusader for truth against the apologists of Islam and the enemies of Christianity, and this book is her most forceful testament yet.

 

Ms. Darwish begins Wholly Different by noting that it wasn’t until she emigrated from Egypt to America that she began to get a clear perspective on the Islamic values she had accepted unquestioningly for the first thirty years of her life – values that she came to see “are diametrically opposed to Biblical moral values.” Her life under Islam “was a constant struggle to survive and placate a system that was unforgiving and unaccepting of anything less than total surrender of my humanity, dignity, and privacy – in other words, my life, liberty, and pursuit of happiness.”

 

But her introduction to Christianity was transformative. “When I became Christian and heard for the first time that we human beings were made in the image of God, I wept. I was in awe at the honor, after being given shame and little value under Islam,” which is “not about transforming hearts and renewing minds; it is about conquering lands and enslaving minds.”

 

“While the overriding theme of the Bible is the redemption and happiness of believers,” she adds, “the overriding theme of Islam’s holy book is punishing non-believers.”

 

Her new life where those principles life, liberty, and pursuit of happiness were at the center of the American Way showed her that “the differences between moral and immoral, good and bad, honor and dishonor, and success and failure were totally different” here. “In the West I found my peace and humanity because of Biblical values that are the foundation of Western society”:

 

Not too many people notice that Biblical values are everywhere in America, even among those who call themselves secular, non-religious, or atheist. But I see Biblical values everywhere here. There is no other explanation for how different life in America is from life in the Islamic world.

 

[]

 

It is unfortunate that many Americans take Biblical values for granted, assuming that kindness, honesty, and joy are the norm, with or without the Bible. Those of us who grew up in the parts of the world beyond the influence of the Bible know better. Biblical values are the product of the Bible, and they cannot be preserved separate from the Bible.

 

Darwish goes on to enumerate a list of differences between Biblical and Islamic values that she has personally witnessed. She breaks down these and literally dozens of other dichotomies throughout the book:

 

We Are All Sinners vs. They Are All Sinners
Life is Sacred vs. Death is Worship
Guided by the Holy Spirit vs. Manipulated by Human Terror
God the Redeemer vs. Allah the Humiliator
Jesus Died for Us vs. We Must Die for Allah
The Truth Will Set You Free vs. Lying is an Obligation
Faith vs. Submission

 

Darwish proceeds to hold up the two sets of religious values as mirror-opposites of each other, with virtually no common ground. She makes no attempt to whitewash Islam, which she refers to as “a cult of death,” and she pulls no punches in presenting it as Christianity’s mortal enemy. “Everything God tells us in the Bible that He loves, Islam has set out to destroy. Islamic values are backward, the opposite to what every Jew and Christian holds dear The Koran represents a negative power, a dark and subversive force that relentlessly challenges the authority of the Bible and God Himself.”

 

“The flame of the Islamic rebellion against the Bible has been burning for fourteen hundred years,” Darwish continues. “It is fueled by terrorism, but also by intentional misinformation, propaganda, and lies.”

 

From praising versus cursing, from creating wealth versus seizing it, from seeking humility versus seeking power, from the example of Jesus to the example of Muhammad, to the differing takes of Christianity and Islam on the seven sins and the Ten Commandments, on reality and mental health, and on family values and feminism, Darwish draws a detailed picture of an incompatible pair of value systems embroiled in a worldwide culture clash. And one of them falls short in every respect: “Islam has failed to provide its followers with a comprehensive and well-integrated value system or with examples of true holiness and godliness. The behavior and character of Muhammad certainly do not qualify.”

 

“Islam lacks confidence in itself,” Darwish asserts, and thus “the mere existence of a freely chosen competing faith threatens Islam at its very core Thus the Bible has become the number one threat to Islam’s ability to prevail.” That is why a book like Wholly Different is such a vital reminder in our time of the vast gulf between the two religions’ sets of values. As Islam wages genocide against Christians in the Middle East and pursues cultural jihad throughout the West, Christianity wrestles internally with a paralyzing identity crisis. There is no more time for self-doubt, no more time for “Coexist” bumper stickers and wishful thinking, no more time for appeasement. What our choice comes down to, Ms. Darwish’s book reminds us, is this: “The values of the Bible lead to peace, prosperity, life, liberty, and happiness. Islamic values will take any society to Hell.” Time to make our choice.

ABOUT FRONTPAGE MAG

 

FRONTPAGE MAG IS A PROUD PROJECT OF THE DAVID HOROWITZ FREEDOM CENTER

 

The DHFC is dedicated to the defense of free societies whose moral, cultural and economic foundations are under attack by enemies both secular and religious, at home and abroad.

 

The David Horowitz Freedom Center combats the efforts of the radical left and its Islamist allies to destroy American values and disarm this country as it attempts to defend itself in a time of terror. The leftist offensive is most obvious on our nation’s campuses, where the Freedom Center protects students from indoctrination and intimidation and works to give conservative students a place in the marketplace of ideas from which they are otherwise excluded. Combining forceful analysis and bold activism, the Freedom Center provides strong insight into today’s most pressing issue on its family of websites and in the activist campaigns it wages on campus, in the news media, and in national politics throughout the year.

 

David Horowitz began the Center for the Study of Popular Culture in 1988 to establish a conservative presence in Hollywood and show how popular culture had become a political battleground. Over the next 18 years, CSPC attracted 50,000 contributing supporters and established programs such as The Wednesday Morning Club, the Individual Rights Foundation, and Students for Academic Freedom.

 

FrontPage Magazine, the Center’s online journal of news and political commentary has 1.5 million visitors and over 870,000 unique visitors a month (65 million hits) and is linked to over 2000 other websites. The magazine’s coverage of and commentary about events has been greatly augmented over the last two years by the presence of four Shillman Fellows in Journalism underwritten by board member Dr. Robert Shillman. FrontPage has recently added a blog called “The Point,” run by Shillman Fellow Daniel Greenfield, which has tripled web traffic.
