Terror in Paris:  A Message to Our Friends in Paris

 

By Ari Bussel

Sent: 11/14/2015 9:32 PM

 

Dear Friends,

 

From yesterday afternoon, now for 24 hours, our thoughts and prayers are with you.

 

Parisians, French, the people of Western Europe, of the Western World and the Judeo-Christian way of life:  We are all one.

 

We all face the same end, if we do not stand up and stand together to defend all that is dear to us - our way of life!

 

Two weeks ago, I have returned from Israel, where the third Intifada rages.  It is also called the Stabbing Intifada, for they use knifes (and Molotov cocktails and vehicles) as weapons - to create what they glorify as "A SYMPHONY OF BLOOD."

 

Blood to them is a "symphony of love," it colors their lives, it highlights the achievement of being.

 

Theirs is a death cult, while we strive for life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.

 

I call this third Intifada the Youth Intifada, for they are all young, so very young.  They have been brainwashed and trained from age zero, by their parents and their society, music videos, videos, text books, songs, stamps and religious sermons to become martyrs.  They have been robbed of their childhood and became weapons of terror. 

 

Now they are being unleashed, wave after wave after endless wave.

 

Day after day in Israel, innocent people are being murdered, walking in the street, standing at a bus stop, entering a marketplace.  Young, old, parents and children, grandparents and grandchildren together - it matters not, as long as blood spills and quenches their lust, hunger and thirst.

 

In recent days they have graduated to using live weapons.  On Friday, they shot a father, then went and shot his 18 year old son.  The victims' only sin:  being Jewish in their homeland.

 

A few hours later the same was multiplied in your capital city, the city of lights and laughter, the city of life.

 

Alas, what can be applied well against the Jews is later exported to the rest of the world.

 

You have experienced it first hand on Friday.

 

We have seen it before:  those strapped with explosives.  Others gathering people and executing them en mass.  Or beheading or burning people - for the world to see.

 

We must stand up and we must stand together.  Else, there will be no one to speak for us, as - not that long ago - wrote Pastor Martin Niemoller.

 

Psalms 120:7 (the Jewish Bible, the Christian Old Testament) tells us:

 

ז  אֲנִי-שָׁלוֹם, וְכִי אֲדַבֵּר;    הֵמָּה, לַמִּלְחָמָה.

7 I am all peace; but when I speak, they are for war. {P}

 

Let us safeguard our way of life.  Let us celebrate life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness!  For our fight is just and our cause is life itself, while our enemies - enemies of the free world - are a death cult.

 

May you stand strong as you mourn your dead and prepare for what might be unleashed next.

 

Always,

 

Ari Bussel

PROPOSAL FOR PEACE IN FRANCE

 

Sent by Ari Bussel

Dear friends,

 

Today is a day of mourning for me for I am a Francophile and Paris is my most beloved city since my mother took me there when I was 15.

 

However, the ironies (and I do not mean Friday the 13th) of the frightening carnage cannot be ignored.

 

First, it happened on the very day that the EU announced its plan to mark Israeli goods produced in Judea & Samaria and in "Palestine" which does not exist and never did. It can only be regarded as punishing the victim with more support for the aggressor. This is how aggression and violence are rewarded in convoluted Europe.

 

Secondly, the new Canadian Liberal government announced that Harper's era of special friendship towards Israel is over. From now on "evenhandedness" (namely, equating terrorists with their victims) is the new policy which includes the treatment of Hezballah as a legitimate partner to peace. One wonders how soon will Canada be attacked in order to get even more concessions from Trudeau's government.

 

Thirdly, our genius American Secretary of State is in Vienna to negotiate "peace" in Syria. He thinks that feeding beasts satisfies them. Thinking people know that feeding beasts make them hungrier.

 

So in that context, no wonder the Liberal-socialist French government who took in thousands of Muslim "refugees" and is among the least friendly European countries to Israel, is the latest receipient [sic] of the Muslim gratitude we witnessed last night.

 

Although I weep for all the innocents who lost their lives and for the rape of my beloved Paris, I cannot refrain from posting again this article by Steven Plaut, published in 2000.

 

How long and how many more rivers of blood will it take for the Europeans to realize who in the Middle East is their only true friend. If I were them, I would rush to buy every item of goods produced in Judea & Samaria.

 

Your Truth Provider,

Yuval.

France must Offer Land for Peace

By Steven Plaut

 

In the aftermath of the series of protests in Paris against occupation by activists and militants, who have grievances, we bring you the French plan for peace, based on France's Mideast policies.  It is the only way to solve the problem of ISIS activism in Paris.

 

First, we all agree that territory must not be annexed by force. Therefore, we can also agree that Germany has a moral right to demand the return of Alsace-Lorraine, for the French aggression in 1945 and its consequent occupation must not be rewarded. "A full withdrawal for full peace" should operate here. Further, France must agree to the return and rehabilitation of all ethnic Germans expelled from Alsace-Lorraine after World Wars I and II, as well as all those they define as their descendents [sic].

But this, of course, is just the first step toward a solution, as no aggression can be rewarded-and France has much other stolen territory to return. It took Corsica from Genoa, Nice and Savoy from Piedmont; as the successor state, Italy must get back all these lands. By similar token, territories grabbed from the Habsburgs go back to Austria, including Franche-Comte, Artois, and historic Burgundy. The Roussillon area (along the Pyrenees) must be returned to Spain, its rightful owner. And Normandy, Anjou, Aquitaine, and Gascony must be returned to their rightful owners, the British royal family.

Not even this not enough for the sake of peace. Brittany and Languedoc must be granted autonomy at once, recognizing the Breton and Occitan Liberation organizations as their legal rulers. This leaves the French government in control over the Ile de France (the area around Paris).

That, however, still does not solve the problem of the Holy City of Paris, sacred to artists, gourmets, and adulterers. The Corsicans obviously have a historic claim to the Tomb of the Emperor Napoleon, their famed son, as well as the Invalides complex [Wikipedia] and beyond. For the sake of peace, is it not too much to ask that Paris be the capital for two peoples? The French authorities must agree to prevent French Parisians from even entering the sacred tomb area, lest this upset the Corsicans. Let the Eiffel Tower be converted into a mosque.  


The Saint Chapelle and the Church of Notre Dame of course will be internationalized, under joint Vatican-art historical auspices. Indeed, the French should consider it a compliment of the highest order that so many people see Paris as an international city.

The French have nothing to complain of. They will enjoy the benefits of peace and retain control of the Champs Elysees. 

Actually, come to think of it, even the Champs Elysees may be too much. Recalling the French position that Jerusalem is not the capital of Israel, perhaps the true French capital is not Paris at all, but Vichy.

Truth, Massacres, Brochures, and Jihadi John

Lots of painful truths. The one that will briefly get the most attention: the jihadic terrorist attacks in Paris. 

The terrorists shouted 'Allah Akbar' and 'This Is For Syria' as they burst in and opened fire, witnesses have said . . . More than 140 dead in series of terror attacks: 100 are killed after hostages are taken at theatre. Kalashnikov-wielding gunman opens fire in restaurant. Two SUICIDE bombs detonate near the Stade de France. Gunfire at shopping centre . . . 
http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-3317776 

 

 

[Blog Editor: Here is an updated list from the above link about Islamic terrorist murders in Paris France]

 

 

  • 129 people killed, 352 injured and 99 in critical condition following a series of co-ordinated terror attacks in Paris

 

  • Up to 100 were massacred in the Bataclan concert hall after suicide bombers took hostage then blew themselves up

 

  • First gunman identified as Ismaël Omar Mostefaï, a 29-year-old who lived in Chartres, southwest of Paris

 

  • First British national killed in attack named as Nick Alexander, who was working in band merchandise at Bataclan

 

  • British-educated lawyer Valentin Ribet who studied at London School of Economics was the first victim to be named

 

  • American design student Nohemi Gonzalez was studying at the Strate College of Design and was killed last night

 

  • More than 20 others were gunned down outside restaurants by militant brandishing an AK-47 machine gun

 

  • Two suicide bombers targeted the Stade de France stadium where President Francois Hollande was watching game

 

  • Two of the gunmen believed to have travelled to France by disguising themselves as migrants entering via Greece

 

  • The French President has declared a state of emergency for the whole country and reinstates border checks

 

  • He has vowed to 'mercilessly' strike back against ISIS and has declared three days of national mourning

 

With Open Gates has the hard-hitting truth that I would most recommend sending to anyone who insists Islam is not a threat (that the jihad massacres, for instance, are just from a few misguided individuals).

“A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly." - Marcus Tullius Cicero, 106-43 BC

 

You are witnessing what will be shown to future generations as the reason for the fall of an Empire.

 

At current immigration levels and disappearing birth rates native Europeans are destined to become a minority in their own countries within decades. This is already the case for many of Europe's largest cities.

 

Europeans have effectively lost their right to exist as cultures and nations in their own homelands and are facing extinction.

 

Millions of young Muslim men leave behind their family, pay thousands to criminal traffickers to reach the land they have been promised by European politicians illegally.

 

Dubbed by the media as "refugees", they cross through 6-10 safe countries to reach wealthy nations like Germany or Sweden where they hope to receive a better life at the expense of the taxpayer.

 

Only a fraction of them are Syrian, as they enter unfiltered, without any documents and without any legitimate right to claim asylum. Women and children are rarely seen, except in the cherry-picked sob stories of the media.

 

Any indigenous resistance of Europeans who refuse to hand over the countries of their ancestors to often radical and criminal Muslim foreigners is labeled "hateful", "racist", even "Nazi".

 

The level of cultural, moral and political subversion with egalitarian and Marxist ideologies has reached levels the KGB would never have dreamed of. Equality and tolerance are lies that serve none but a few.

 

The Left, mainly orchestrated by Zionist interests, is destroying our countries from the inside. Patriotism, the most basic and fundamental trait of any nation that wants to survive, has become something to be ashamed of.

 

Feminism has destroyed family values and birth rates. Healthy nationalism has been replaced with a culture of guilt, self-hatred, apathy, degeneracy and pathological altruism. We are told to embrace "diversity", in reality this simply means instead of just being a global minority, Europeans are supposed to become a minority in their own countries as well. No civilized society can keep up with the birth rate of third world immigrants, especially when the main goal is integration rather than assimilation. Parallel societies breed poverty, crime and radicalism.

 

Multiculturalism has never, at any time in human history, worked anywhere. If you believe otherwise, you're delusional. In fact it's the primary reason for every major conflict.

 

The crimes committed by the EU against the European peoples are directly in violation of the 1948 UN genocide convention, Article II: (c) Deliberately inflicting on the group conditions of life calculated to bring about its physical destruction in whole or in part; (d) Imposing measures intended to prevent births within the group; (e) Forcibly transferring children of the group to another group.

 

Because of this injustice, far-right parties everywhere in Europe are gaining astonishing amounts of support, becoming the biggest parties in some countries.

 

Any European that does not rise up to defend his country from foreign invasion because he's too scared of words does not deserve it.

 

We are still at a point where you will not get imprisoned for your political opinion in most European countries, but this will change very soon. Do not be apathetic, do not be weak. Be someone that can be proud to call himself European.

For another bit of hard-hitting truth, here are college officials at Yale, Cornell and Syracuse shredding the US constitution: 
http://www.barenakedislam.com/2015/11/11/officials-at-yale-cornell-syracuse 


 

In the words of BareNakedIslam: "We saw an official at North Carolina State ban the Constitution from student dorms. Now, officials from 3 more so-called leading institutions of higher learning have no problem destroying the very document that gives them right to be such America-hating morons." 

We all know, of course, that these college officials would not dare ban the Quran from students’ dorms, or shred it (though it certainly qualifies as hate speech).


About the mass jihad attacks in France. We've known for years - meaning, anyone paying attention to Islam has known for years - that this kind of thing is going to happen ever more. It comes from Islamic ideology.

 

Yet the ostrich leaders in much of Europe, as well as millions upon millions of ostrich citizens, have refused to look closely at Islam. Right now, Germany's Merkel is hitting hard at . . . what? Oh yes, websites that promote a negative attitude to the Islamic migrants. 
http://www.barenakedislam.com/2015/11/13/angela-merkel

 

[Blog Editor: BNI excerpt]

 

German Chancellor Angela Merkel orders shutdown of websites that slam Muslim freeloaders, rapists, and terrorists posing as refugees

11/13/15

 

Berlin police say they’ve raided 10 buildings in the German capital as part of a crackdown on ‘far-right hate speech’ on social media networks against Merkel’s suicidal policy of taking in masses of Syrian Muslim ‘refugees’ most of whom are neither Syrian nor refugees.

 

FOX News  Police said Thursday that the morning raids involved 60 officers, who confiscated smartphones and computers as evidence, which are now being evaluated. They didn’t have any immediate information on arrests.

 

They say the raids are part of an ongoing investigation into hate speech spread over social media meant to incite people against asylum-seekers and refugee housing. Angela Merkel got Mark Zuckerberg of Facebook to agree to start deleting anti-Muslim invader posts. … READ THE REST

 

I've heard the Paris massacres called a tragedy. Yes, they're a tragedy - like death from lung cancer is a tragedy for the person who has smoked 5 packs a day for decades.

 

It's also frustrating for those who have watched the chain smoker polluting not only him or herself but those around.

 

I ask: how much responsibility do the non-Muslims of France - of the West - have for not paying attention to Islam, and for not taking action much sooner. The French president, Hollande, was ELECTED - in other words, his insanity re Islam goes with the refusal to acknowledge reality of so many non-Muslim citizens. And Canada has just elected Trudeau who is intent on importing 25,000 more Islamic migrants in the next seven weeks. 


Where am I heading? Almost all of us who pay attention to Islam acknowledge the insanity of allowing mass Islamic influx into the West. We also recognize the insanity of West-hating Westerners who avoid any kind of critical gaze at Islam. Sometimes we get massively frustrated. Sometimes we don't know what to do next.

To give you a bit of relief, here's an introduction to Steve Amundson of the Counter Jihad Coalition: 


http://worldtruthsummit.com/steve-amundson-counter-jihad-coalition.html

 

Steve Amundson of Counter Jihad Coalition

 

Perhaps most important, here are 24 brochures from the Counter Jihad Coalition that you can download and distribute anywhere and everywhere. They include:

Migrants or Invaders? 
The 4 Stages of Islamic Conquest
Sharia for Dummies,
Surah 9: Mohammad's Last Will and Testament, 

http://worldtruthsummit.com/steve-amundson-counter-jihad-coalition.html#brochures


 

You may know the material inside out. But the brochures make it so much easier to pass on the knowledge.

The interview with Steve will be aired Nov 25, 8 pm EST (New York time). You will have 2 days to listen free. You will also have the chance to send questions that Steve will answer the following week. 


And now, as always, all the best to all of us who care and dare - to life and to love,

John Koskinen was appointed as Commissioner to the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) in 2013 by President Barack Hussein Obama. Koskinen has lied to Congress and obstructed Congressional investigations into the IRS. Why should we be surprised? After all the IRS targeting of Conservative organizations has been going on and covered up at least since 2010 undoubtedly under the direction of President Barack Hussein Obama. When the light began to expose the crooked tax collecting organization subpoenas were ignored, documents lost or destroyed and the electronic fingerprints found attempted erasure.

 

HAS ANYONE BEEN HELD ACCOUNTABLE?

 

To date no one has faced criminal charges for either partisan attacks or the cover-up. Does that sound like White House cooperation in terminating the rats in the woodwork? What does that tell you? All scandal roads lead straight to President Obama. This can be surmised because the White House is involved in the same kind of obstruction to investigations with the Left Stream Media covering the Obama Administration’s back-side.

 

Discover The Networks has an excellent timeline of what is public knowledge of nefarious activities in the IRS that begin with Commissioner Doug Shulman and continued on by his replacement Steven Miller and then Miller’s replacement Daniel Werfel who has been replaced with the current corrupt IRS Commissioner John Koskinen:

 

In May 2013, it was learned that from April 2010 to April 2012, the Internal Revenue Service had placed on hold the processing of applications for tax-exempt status that it had received from hundreds of organizations with such presumably conservative indicators as “Tea Party,” “Patriots,” or “9/12” in their names. During that period, the IRS approved only four applications from conservative groups while green-lighting applications from several dozen organizations whose names included the likely left-leaning terms “Progressive,” “Progress,” “Liberal,” or “Equality.” 

In February 2014, it was further learned that of the
already-existing nonprofits that were flagged for IRS surveillance (including monitoring of the groups’ activities, websites, and any other publicly available information), 83% were conservative. And, of the groups that the IRS selected for audit, 100% were conservative.

This section of Discover The Networks provides a timeline of this illegal, blatantly partisan practice by the IRS. 

 

February to March 2010: An email string from February – March 2010 includes a message from a California Exempt Organizations Determinations manager discussing a Tea Party application “currently being held in the Screening group.” The manager urges, “Please let ‘Washington’ know about this potentially embarrassing political case involving a ‘Tea Party’ organization. Recent media attention to this type of organization indicates to me that this is a ‘high profile’ case.”  A co-worker responds: “I think sending it up here [DC] is a good idea given the potential for media interest.” (Source)

March 31 to April 1, 2010: Colleen Kelley, president of the National Treasury Employees Union (NTEU)—the 150,000-member union that represents employees of the IRS and 30 other government agencies—visits President Obama at the White House. NTEU's Political Action Committee endorsed Obama in both 2008 and 2012, and gave READ THE REST

 

What a surprise. A Union and President Obama have a strategy meeting. I doubt finger criminals was the topic of discussion. More than likely the discussions was how to grease the wheels of obstruction and cover-up.

 

A friend of mine forwarded a Tea Party Patriots email which rallies support to press the House to impeach Obama’s current IRS thug chief John Koskinen. A successful impeachment would bring to light a trail of criminality that I am confident will eventually lead to Obama and his White House minions. Below is the TPP email portions that deal with impeaching Koskinen (I’m leaving out the marketing pitch):

She wrote, "But impeachment is the appropriate response to Koskinen’s conduct in office, if impeachment is meant to be used, as Alexander Hamilton wrote in Federalist 65, to remedy 'those offenses which proceed from the misconduct of public men, or, in other words, from the abuse or violation of some public trust.'"

Impeach Koskinen Petition

***********************

Impeach Koskinen

 

By Jenny Beth Martin

November 10, 2015, 07:30 am

The Hill

 

House Republicans have introduced a resolution to impeach Internal Revenue Service Commissioner John Koskinen, about which, a simple thought – it’s about damn time.

 

Impeaching a senior official of the federal government is no small deal. Only seventeen times since the Constitution came into force in 1789 has the House of Representatives even tried to impeach a federal official; only eight times has the Senate seen fit to convict. And not since March of 1876 has an appointed executive branch official been impeached. It’s a difficult thing to do, and it was meant to be; it should only be used for the most egregious offenses.

 

But impeachment is the appropriate response to Koskinen’s conduct in office, if impeachment is meant to be used, as Alexander Hamilton wrote in Federalist 65, to remedy “those offenses which proceed from the misconduct of public men, or, in other words, from the abuse or violation of some public trust.”

 

The text of H. Res. 494, introduced by Oversight and Government Reform Chairman Jason Chaffetz (R-Utah) and cosponsored by 22 others, makes plain Koskinen’s “abuse or violation of the public trust.”

 

In four separate articles of impeachment, Koskinen is charged with:

 

Failing to comply with a subpoena for evidence, resulting in the destruction of that evidence – 422 backup tapes, which housed as many as 24,000 Lois Lerner emails;

 

Failing to testify truthfully and providing false and misleading information to the Congress – Koskinen testified that the IRS had turned over all emails relevant to the congressional investigation (including Lerner’s emails), and then, when that proved to be inaccurate, he testified that the emails were unrecoverable, which also turned out to be false;

 

Failing to notify Congress that key evidence had gone missing – the IRS knew the Lerner emails were missing as early as February 2014, and, in fact, destroyed the emails in early March 2014. But the IRS didn’t tell Congress until June of that year, well after White House and Treasury officials had been notified.

 

In each of these charges, the evidence is clear – it is Koskinen’s own words, offered in sworn testimony to Congress, compared to the record of his and the IRS’s actions.

 

The resolution has been moved to the House Judiciary Committee, which will, presumably, mark it up and send it to the floor at the discretion of the House GOP Leadership. This gives newly elected House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) the perfect opportunity to prove to conservatives and the American people alike that he is truly ready to do the peoples’ work.

 

This shouldn’t be a heavy lift for Ryan – remember the Ways and Means oversight hearing where he tore into Koskinen, saying repeatedly he simply did not believe him? I do.

 

And what do the 2016 Republican presidential contenders think about the latest IRS revelations? Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) has asked the Justice Department to save documents related to the IRS investigation so that the next administration can have a shot at justice. But are the others willing to step in and defend the American people should one of them win the White House? Might I suggest that Neil Cavuto and Maria Bartiromo at Fox Business Network choose this as a subject of conversation during tonight's debate over some of the more ridiculous topics we've seen from other forums this year?

 

Remember, it was the IRS that was used as a political weapon to target citizens who were deemed opponents of this Administration. My organization and many affiliated with it have been on the receiving end of this political weapon and I would not wish it upon any American--including my worst political adversaries.

 

Not surprisingly, it was announced last month that the Obama Justice Department would not press charges against the person at the center of this scandal – former IRS Director of Exempt Organizations Lois Lerner. So, just when will the American people receive justice?

 

A start would be to impeach and convict the man who continued the cover-up and denied justice for the American people, and I truly give House Republicans credit for seeming to understand this. Will Congress step up and do something meaningful to defend the American people? Help make your voice heard by adding your voice to the national petition at www.ImpeachJohn.com.

 

It’s about damn time.

The Old Covenant is the blessings and curses of the Law of Moses. The penalty for the curse for breaking God’s directive was a justice that Christians and Westerners would be horrified to see executed in this day and age.

 

Classic Sin in the Camp Solution

 

So about three thousand men went up there from the people, but they fled before the men of Ai. And the men of Ai struck down about thirty-six men, for they chased them from before the gate as far as Shebarim, and struck them down on the descent; therefore the hearts of the people melted and became like water.

Then Joshua tore his clothes, and fell to the earth on his face before the ark of the Lord until evening, he and the elders of Israel; and they put dust on their heads.

 

10 So the Lord said to Joshua: “Get up! Why do you lie thus on your face?11 Israel has sinned, and they have also transgressed My covenant which I commanded them. For they have even taken some of the accursed things, and have both stolen and deceived; and they have also put it among their own stuff. 12 Therefore the children of Israel could not stand before their enemies, but turned their backs before their enemies, because they have become doomed to destruction. Neither will I be with you anymore, unless you destroy the accursed from among you.

 

20 And Achan answered Joshua and said, “Indeed I have sinned against the LordGod of Israel, and this is what I have done: 21 When I saw among the spoils a beautiful Babylonian garment, two hundred shekels of silver, and a wedge of gold weighing fifty shekels, I coveted them and took them. And there they are, hidden in the earth in the midst of my tent, with the silver under it.”

22 So Joshua sent messengers, and they ran to the tent; and there it was, hidden in his tent, with the silver under it. 23 And they took them from the midst of the tent, brought them to Joshua and to all the children of Israel, and laid them out before the Lord. 24 Then Joshua, and all Israel with him, took Achan the son of Zerah, the silver, the garment, the wedge of gold, his sons, his daughters, his oxen, his donkeys, his sheep, his tent, and all that he had, and they brought them to the Valley of Achor. 25 And Joshua said, “Why have you troubled us? The Lord will trouble you this day.” So all Israel stoned him with stones; and they burned them with fire after they had stoned them with stones. (Joshua 7: 4-6; 10-12; 20-25 NKJVAll of Joshua 7)

 

 

The difficulty of sin seems to have caught up with falsely imprisoned Pastor Saeed Abedini who currently is incarcerated in an Iranian jail subject to abuse and persecution for being a Christian. The sin is not given in specifics but in generalities described as marital problems with Saeed’s wife Naghmeh. Mrs. Abedini has let the cat of the bag that Pastor Saeed has been dealing with porn addiction which has caused unspecified emotional and abuse issues in the marriage.

 

Since the cat is out of the bag Naghmeh has announced she is suspending her public efforts in trying to get her husband Saeed Abedini released from an Iranian jail. I suspect she doesn’t want to deal with humiliating media questions that journalists will now be more interested in personal info on the Abedini marriage more than on freeing Saeed.

 

The secular media is quite unforgiving when they smell a Christian public figure has personal issues that Christianity views as immoral. Such media trolls have a tendency write anything that places Christianity in a bad light. Why? When Christianity is denigrated publicly the theme is pushed that Christian morality is antiquated and time to be placed in the history books as not essential in a lifestyle of living.

 

If Christianity is outdated than the concept of a Creator God is then erroneous. Thus moral stands against baby-killing in womb is outdated. The practice of homosexuality labeled as an abomination by God Almighty is okay the Almighty does not exist. Ungodly sexual practices (e.g. adultery, pornography, bestiality, polygamy, prostitution, pre-marital sex, man-boy sex and on and on) can be equated with the norm as long as a greater quantity of people begins to view the practices as not socially denigrating to societal norms.

 

When a devoted Christian slips into errors that non-practicing Christians and non-Christians are easily susceptible to, then those that condemn Christian/Biblical morality partake into a feeling of self-justification in their own choices.

 

New Covenant Good News to the curse of the Law

 

This is the message which we have heard from Him and declare to you, that God is light and in Him is no darkness at all. If we say that we have fellowship with Him, and walk in darkness, we lie and do not practice the truth. But if we walk in the light as He is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus Christ His Son cleanses us from all sin.

 

If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. 10 If we say that we have not sinned, we make Him a liar, and His word is not in us. (1 John 1: 5-10 NKJV)

 

Here’s some Good News for Christians. Don’t listen to people more interested in self-justification rather than in a Redeemer that justifies those who breaks God’s holiness with His own Blood because that which is unredeemed no not what they do. So what about those who have embraced Redemption and should know better?

 

More Good News: Redemption makes the old twisted nature into a new creation with the stamp of Jesus Christ certifying the newness of life. But, there is more Redemption yet to come. A Redemption accepting humanity has not yet received full Redemption. Neither our human biological flesh nor our human soul in which sensory knowledge still reigns supreme are Redeemed. The union of the new creation spirit-man with the Holy Spirit of God in Christ is the down payment promise that the whole man (and woman) will be Redeemed.

 

From Suffering to Glory

18 For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us. 19 For the earnest expectation of the creation eagerly waits for the revealing of the sons of God.20 For the creation was subjected to futility, not willingly, but because of Him who subjected it in hope; 21 because the creation itself also will be delivered from the bondage of corruption into the glorious liberty of the children of God.22 For we know that the whole creation groans and labors with birth pangs together until now. 23 Not only that, but we also who have the firstfruits of the Spirit, even we ourselves groan within ourselves, eagerly waiting for the adoption, the redemption of our body. 24 For we were saved in this hope, but hope that is seen is not hope; for why does one still hope for what he sees?25 But if we hope for what we do not see, we eagerly wait for it with perseverance. (Romans 8: 18-25 NKJV)

 

Assurance of the Resurrection

For we know that if our earthly house, this tent, is destroyed, we have a building from God, a house not made with hands, eternal in the heavens. For in this we groan, earnestly desiring to be clothed with our habitation which is from heaven, if indeed, having been clothed, we shall not be found naked.For we who are in this tent groan, being burdened, not because we want to be unclothed, but further clothed, that mortality may be swallowed up by life.Now He who has prepared us for this very thing is God, who also has given us the Spirit as a guarantee.

 

14 For the love of Christ compels us, because we judge thus: that if One died for all, then all died; 15 and He died for all, that those who live should live no longer for themselves, but for Him who died for them and rose again.

 

16 Therefore, from now on, we regard no one according to the flesh. Even though we have known Christ according to the flesh, yet now we know Him thus no longer. 17 Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new. 18 Now all things are of God, who has reconciled us to Himself through Jesus Christ, and has given us the ministry of reconciliation, 19 that is, that God was in Christ reconciling the world to Himself, not imputing their trespasses to them, and has committed to us the word of reconciliation. (2 Corinthians 5: 1-5, 14-19 NKJV)

 

Ephesians 1:13-14

13 In Him you also trusted, after you heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation; in whom also, having believed, you were sealed with the Holy Spirit of promise, 14 who[a] is the guarantee of our inheritance until the redemption of the purchased possession, to the praise of His glory.

 

Ephesians 4:22-24

22 that you put off, concerning your former conduct, the old man which grows corrupt according to the deceitful lusts, 23 and be renewed in the spirit of your mind, 24 and that you put on the new man which was created according to God, in true righteousness and holiness. (Ephesians 1: 13-14; 4: 22-24 NKJV)

 

When is that Promise to be realized? At the Second Coming of Christ when He returns as King of kings and Lord of lords to restore the whole of humanity and the whole earth to unfettered communion with God Almighty. Knowledge of God’s Will become as instinctive as human thought is in the present.

 

So what does that mean for Pastor Saeed and Naghmeh Abedini? It means nothing for the nosy particularly for nosy judgmental Christians who need to be just as concerned about the beam in their own eye rather than the speck of wood not clearly seen by the human eye in another. It means everything for the Abedini family of which repentance and restoration is always available to Believers in the Redemptive Blood of Jesus the Son of God and Savior. The process is between the Abedinis and God with the guidance of the man (or woman) of God in which has the spiritual responsibility of oversight by the Anointing of the Holy Spirit.

 

I am not a part of that process and those reading this probably not a part that process either.

 

I still pray for Pastor Saeed Abedini’s protection from Christian-hating Muslim Iranians and deliverance back home to the USA – the land of the free and home of the brave.

Pastor Abedini's Wife Cites Stress in Suspending Public Efforts for Husband's Freedom

 

By CBNNews.com

CBN News

 

CBN Video

 

 

Naghmeh Abedini is pulling back her public fight to see her husband Pastor Saeed Abedini freed from an Iranian prison.

 

Christianity Today reports the emotional stress of the effort, along with "abuse" issues in her marriage before and since Saeed's imprisonment, have taken a toll. CBN News contacted the American Center for Law and Justice, which represents the Abedini family, for a response.
 
"In recent days, Naghmeh -- Pastor Saeed's wife -- has revealed that she is dealing with some very serious personal issues inside her family. She has asked for privacy and prayer. We are respecting her request. The ACLJ will not have any comment on the personal issues that she is addressing," the ACLJ told CBN News.

 

The CT article is based mostly on two emails Abedini sent to supporters revealing the problems. In those emails she listed marital problems, including "physical, emotional, psychological and sexual abuse [through Saeed's addiction to pornography]."
 
The ACLJ gave CBN News the following statement from Naghmeh Abedini:

 

"I regret having sent the emails. I was under great psychological and emotional distress. I am now taking time off to heal and to rest and to spend much needed time with my kids. I would appreciate for those who care about Saeed and our family to give us time for rest and healing and to respect our privacy."

 

Meanwhile, The ACLJ told CBN News it remains committed to seeing Saeed's freedom.
 
"What we are focused on is this: bringing home an American pastor who has been wrongly imprisoned in Iran because of his faith. We know that Pastor Saeed remains in grave danger in prison where he continues to be beaten and psychologically abused by Iranian guards and remains in need of medical care," the ACLJ said.


 
"We continue to pray for Naghmeh, Pastor Saeed, and their family. We will continue our work -- in this country and abroad -- to secure the freedom of this U.S. citizen," the ACLJ statement concluded.

 

Naghmeh also asked for prayer to continue for Saeed and their family. CT reported she pointed out that Saeed still shares his faith in Jesus while imprisoned -- and that she calls her husband a "treasure." 
 
"But that does not mean he has not been battling with his own demons which I am believing that he can be freed of," CT quoted from Naghmeh's writings.

 

"I will continue to pray for my husband's release and advocate for him as he suffers in an Iranian prison for his Christian faith. I would also ask others to join me in continuing to pray for his release," Naghmeh said in her statement to CBN News.


 
Saeed Abedini has spent more than three years in an Iranian prison simply for his Christian faith. He is still being mistreated, beaten and denied medical care.

 

Despite Naghmeh's revelations, several groups that have stood with the family said they will continue to speak out on her husband's behalf.

 

 

"Regardless of any struggles that Pastor Saeed may be experiencing it doesn't change the fact that the faith community needs to be a powerful and passionate voice calling for his immediate release and standing with our persecuted brothers and sisters," said Rev. Patrick Mahoney, who leads the Christian Defense Coalition.

 

Mahoney has led several prayer vigils across the country and met with political leaders to try and secure Pastor Abedini's release.

 

Rev. Rob Schenck, president of the National Clergy Council, has also been actively involved in Pastor's Abedini's case.

 

"It's hard to imagine the pressures that souls like Nagmeh and Saeed Abedini endure," Schenck said in a statement released by his office. He reminded people who've prayed for the Abedini family that "they are not super heroes, just regular people facing the same problems we all do, only under extreme circumstances."

 

Mahoney and Schenck will hold a press conference later on Friday to show their continued support for Pastor Abedini.

 

"God calls us to stand on principle and justice not personalities," Mahoney said.

 

Meanwhile, reaction to Naghmeh Abedini's personal family trauma on social media has been mixed.

 

Robin G., writing on CBN News' Facebook page, said, "Something about his just doesn't feel right in my spirit."

 

Jan H. wrote, "I'm sad that she didn't keep this private. What is the point in exposing this to the whole world?"

 

Jenny J. said, "This is absolutely heart breaking. I am shocked."

 

Nadege S. added, "It is easy to accuse a man who is locked up thousands of miles away in a dungeon."

 

Meanwhile, another poster, Teresa C., warned people not to judge the Abedini's writing: "We don't know the whole story and it is not for us to know."

 

The emotional and psychological trauma of enduring a hostage or kidnapping situation can be extremely difficult for families and loved ones involved.

 

"There's a lot of studies that have shown that families incur post-traumatic stress at the same rate that hostages do," Chris Voss, founder and CEO of The Black Swan Group, a company that solves business negotiations with hostage negotiation strategies said. "The reality is that this is the family's darkest hour."

 

Voss is a 24-year veteran of the FBI's negotiation team and was the lead international kidnapping negotiator for the agency.

 

Voss spoke with CBN News' George Thomas about the pressures that prolonged, illegal imprisonment can put on families. Click below to watch the interview.

"When someone is a hostage, the fear and trauma is overwhelming and unending they don't know when it is going to end and it is a really horrifying experience for families," Voss told CBN News from his office in California. "Families are held hostage as much as the hostages are."

 

In a Washington Post, editorial Naghmeh Abedini wrote about the emotional toll the ordeal was taking on her family.

 

"The continued imprisonment of Saeed has taken a very emotional and tragic toll on our family," Naghmeh said. "My kids have had to grow up without a father. Saeed has missed so many birthdays, anniversaries, and special occasions."

 

Abedini said since the US and Western countries signed a nuclear deal with Iran, her husband's physical condition has gotten worse.

 

"Saeed was being beaten and interrogated by Iranian guards in prison," Abedini wrote in the Washington Post. "During that encounter, guards interrogated Saeed and used a stun gun on him. Although there was no detailed information provided, Saeed was told he would face additional new charges, possibly extending his eight-year prison sentence."

 

Voss says in such cases where a hostage victim endures great physical and psychological torture at the hands of their captors, families back home also feel the pain.

 

"What we have a tendency to do as human beings is that we imagine it in a very horrific fashion so the people that love him  [Pastor Abedini] and the people that care about him are really putting themselves through hell trying to get him out, thinking about what he must be going through. It is truly the families [sic] darkest hour," Voss said.

 

CBN News will continue to update

As part of the progressive-left influence that Kupelian says is so adversely affecting the nation, Americans are being intimidated, bullied and seduced into accepting a whole slew of false “narratives” as though they represented reality, said Kupelian.

 

A “narrative,” he said, is just “a nice name for a … mass delusion.”


 

… I’m saying we have a culture and a presidency in which basically we’re taught there is no God, there is no right and wrong and the biblical morals that this country did pretty well with for several centuries are oppressive and racist and we need to get rid of them!" …

 


 

How can a person cope with living in a world of false narratives and dreamlike illusions? Kupelian argues the solution is simple:

 

"We need to wake up. We just need to wake up."

 

He continued: "People tell me, 'You know, this is a nightmare we’re living in under Obama.' … It’s true, but there’s only one step away from a nightmare to being awake again. You just have to wake up. You have to put aside these sleepy delusions" that make us feel so comfortable in our dream world, he said. (LEFT PROMOTING MASS DELUSION, SAYS JOURNALIST; By Joseph Farah; WND; 11/11/15)

 

That is an excerpt from WND’s editorial/promotion of author David Kupelian’s new book about how the Obama/Leftist American transformation agenda is destroying America from within by eradicating everything that has made the USA an exceptional nation in a world of oppressive agendas.

 

I haven’t read Kupelian’s book yet but I’m going to get a copy.

LEFT PROMOTING MASS DELUSION, SAYS JOURNALIST

Hear 'Snapping' author David Kupelian on fast-paced San Francisco broadcast


From email alert sent by Joseph Farah

Email sent: 11/12/2015 5:09 AM

November 11, 2015

WND

 

Listen to David Kupelian’s rapid-fire interview with Brian Sussman on San Francisco’s KSFO Morning Show:

 

Embed --  
 

From alleged widespread racism to “Islamophobia” to “gender reassignment,” the way the American left currently portrays many of today’s top issues is not only wrong, says bestselling author David Kupelian, it is an attempt to forcibly replace reality with a series of coveted delusions – commonly called “narratives.”
 

Kupelian, whose latest book is “The Snapping of the American Mind,” made his comments during a fast-paced drive-time interview with popular San Francisco KSFO radio talker Brian Sussman.
 

“The statistics are simply mind-melting,” said Kupelian, referring to the astronomical levels of addiction, depression and family breakdown in today’s America, which he ties in his book to the left’s ongoing “fundamental transformation of America.” “One hundred and thirty million people are dependent on legal or illegal mind-altering substances. We’re not talking 130,000. This sounds like all the adults, almost – it’s like [we're] a nation of addicts!”

 

As part of the progressive-left influence that Kupelian says is so adversely affecting the nation, Americans are being intimidated, bullied and seduced into accepting a whole slew of false “narratives” as though they represented reality, said Kupelian.

 

A “narrative,” he said, is just “a nice name for a … mass delusion.”

 

Kupelian rattled off a few examples of present-day false media narratives:

 

“Faisal Mohammad wasn’t motivated by jihad.”

 

“Bruce Jenner is a woman.”

 

Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri, was a victim of racist police – even though it’s proven that he was a predator,” Kupelian added. “He was a punk on drugs who had just knocked off a convenience store and he tried to kill a cop, to grab his gun!” But “it doesn’t matter” to the left, said Kupelian. “You still hear about Ferguson and Michael Brown” as though the mythical “gentle giant” was a victim of trigger-happy, racist cops.

 

Another delusion-based narrative, said Kupelian, is that “Islam is a religion of peace. I have to tell you, I have about 100 family members who were killed by jihadists during the Armenian Genocide,” said Kupelian. “Islam has not been a religion of peace for the last 14 centuries. And it doesn’t show any signs of beginning now.”

 

"Where is this all coming from?" Kupelian asked rhetorically.

 

"We don’t live in a vacuum. … I’m saying we have a culture and a presidency in which basically we’re taught there is no God, there is no right and wrong and the biblical morals that this country did pretty well with for several centuries are oppressive and racist and we need to get rid of them!" He added, "There’s a side of us that feels like this is liberation, but there’s a price to pay. We’re paying the price now."

 

Indeed, American politics has become so unhinged, he said, it is hard for normal Americans to even process what is happening.

 

"Hillary Clinton should be in prison, he noted, adding, "We have this socialist who, God bless Donald Trump, he referred to Bernie Sanders as a 'communist maniac.'"

 

He then told Sussman: "I defy your listeners to go to the CPUSA website, Communist Party USA [cpusa.org] … Tell me the difference between the communist – forget socialism, the Communist Party USA – and the Democrat Party. Everything [on the CPUSA site] is 'war on women,' 'racism,' all the same stuff" over which today's Democrat Party obsesses, he said.

 

The result of this political and moral insanity, Kupelian believes, is a kind of massive psychological strain imposed on Americans who find it difficult to live on a diet of lies.

 

In "The Snapping of the American Mind," said Kupelian, "I’m connecting the dots between that big picture" of the Obama-left's "fundamental transformation" of America "and the individual picture of the wretchedness and brokenness and pathology of the 130 million Americans that are dependent on [toxic] substances," said Kupelian, who contends that leftist deception and intimidation "is actually driving good, unsuspecting Americans over the edge to depression, anger, mental illness, addiction, family breakdown – all the pathology and the wretchedness we see on the individual level which we don’t really attach to politics so much."

 

Sussman, who frequently guest-hosts for Michael Savage on "The Savage Nation" and is the author of "Eco-Tyranny: How the Left’s Green Agenda Will Dismantle America," agreed with Kupelian.

 

"I hear that all the time!" he exclaimed.

 

As a talk show host, Sussman said he must often guard his listeners from everything that’s happening.

 

"If I just gave them the news of the day, people would be crashing their cars," he joked. "Their minds are about to snap. 'I can’t take this anymore.' And I think you’re nailing it with this book."

 

But it can be hard to break away from an all-encompassing media culture. Misspeaking for a moment, Kupelian said, "Bruce Jenner is still a woman," when he meant to say Jenner is still a man.

 

Realizing his mistake, he laughed, "Oh no, they’ve gotten to me!"

 

Sussman chortled, "It’s gotten to you as well, your mind has snapped, David!"

 

Jokes aside, Kupelian’s message is deadly serious. And for those who actually want to help troubled people, he has simple advice – stick to reality. He affirmed the biological impossibility of "sex change" – or to use today's euphemism, "gender reassignment" – citing the finding of the former psychiatrist-in-chief at Johns Hopkins Hospital that changing genders is "biologically impossible."

 

"This is a controversial thing to say, especially in San Francisco," Kupelian advised. "You cannot transition from one sex to the other. An adult male has about 37 trillion cells. Every one of them is permanently branded with Y [male] chromosomes."

 

Kupelian said going along with transgenderism and other absurdities amounts to encouraging mental illness. As he put it, if a pathologically skinny anorexic woman thinks she is fat – a common syndrome among anorexics – "we don’t need to pretend she is fat.”

 

How can a person cope with living in a world of false narratives and dreamlike illusions? Kupelian argues the solution is simple:

 

"We need to wake up. We just need to wake up."

 

He continued: "People tell me, 'You know, this is a nightmare we’re living in under Obama.' … It’s true, but there’s only one step away from a nightmare to being awake again. You just have to wake up. You have to put aside these sleepy delusions" that make us feel so comfortable in our dream world, he said.

 

In the end, Sussman told his listeners, "I want to promote this book heavily. David, great book, and it's flying off the shelves as I would expect."

 

EDITOR'S NOTE: David Kupelian's "The Snapping of the American Mind" is being widely acclaimed for its startling and original analysis of what the progressive left is doing to America.

Charles Krauthammer provides his insides on the GOP debate on the Fox Business News (FBN) channel on O’Reilly last night. Do you agree with Krauthammer’s analysis?

 

JRH 11/11/15

********************

Krauthammer Reveals His Winners and Losers from the Fox Business GOP Debate

 

As seen on The O'Reilly Factor

November 10, 2015 11:53pm

Fox News insider

 

 

Charles Krauthammer joined Bill O'Reilly after the second Fox Business Network-Wall Street Journal Republican debate to reveal who he thinks helped and hurt their campaigns.

 

"The guy with the most at stake was Jeb Bush. Unfortunately, he had another weak night," Krauthammer said. "I don't want to kick him around, but it was not what he needed to do."

 

He said that he also though John Kasich and Dr. Ben Carson had relatively poor showings.

 

As for the winners, Krauthammer said that Marco Rubio had "his usual stellar night."

 

"It's simply amazing. There is no subject on which he is not fluid and forceful and passionate," Krauthammer said. "As usual, I think he led the field."

 

Krauthammer said that he thought Carly Fiorina and Rand Paul also did very well.

 

He acknowledged that Paul takes many unpopular positions, such as his opposition to increased military spending, but he presented his non-mainstream policies in a compelling way.

 

Krauthammer said that Ted Cruz also had a pretty good night, while Donald Trump apparently decided to hang back and "tread water," since he's leading in most polls.

 

Watch more above.

Justin Smith posted a Terry Paulson article on his Facebook page. I wish Justin would have placed an attribution link to Paulson’s very erudite thoughts. When I Googled Terry Paulson I found a version but not the same thing on Townhall.com: “Can America’s Moral Compass Be Restored?” That post was dated November 2. Here is a Paulson bio excerpt from his webpage:

 

Terry Paulson is a PhD psychologist and a leading authority on change management and in turning positive psychology research into practical insights that produce real-world results. He’s a honored professional speaker, national columnist, and author of the popular books, The Optimism Advantage, Leadership Truths One Story at a Time, Paulson on Change, They Shoot Managers Don't They, Making Humor Work, Speak Like a Pro, Favorite Family Lectures, and Can I Have the Keys to the Car?

 

Dr. Paulson is a recipient of The National Speakers Association's Cavett Award. It is the association's most cherished award presented annually to the member whose accomplishments over the years have reflected outstanding credit, respect, honor and admiration in the association and the speaking profession.

 

Dr. Paulson is a past president of READ THE REST

 

So you should understand that Terry Paulson is a man with some earned intellectual cred.

 

Paulson’s “America’s Moral Compass” on Justin’s Facebook page addresses American leadership choices (obviously Obama’s program for America) that have taken the USA away from everything that made our nation exceptionally great. Paulson starts each paragraph with “Our moral compass is broken when …”

 

Below you can read Paulson’s thoughts below in its entirety but I’m going to address those broken moral compass issue with a bit of specificity. To be clear the “specificity” is not comprehensive, but I sense you’ll get the point. So here we go.

 

Paulson: Our moral compass is broken when the Palestinian police state that embraces the destruction of Israel and condones terrorist attacks on innocent civilians is openly defended. When the reported “disproportional” response of Israel to the unprovoked attacks by Islamic extremists who bomb, stab and attack their citizens are equated and described merely as a somehow equivalent “cycle of violence,” America’s moral compass has lost its true North.

 

Obama, Obama’s Leftist cadres, various RINOs and most of the EU nations want to insure that the Arabs that call themselves Palestinians are awarded a sovereign nation at the expense of Israel’s existence. If you believe the propaganda most of these love-Palestinians entities would deny a Palestinian State threatens Israel’s existence. They delude their voters that a Palestinian State would bring a new era of peace to the Middle East. Unfortunately the voters these entities represent for the most part are gullible enough to believe this. The Left oriented entities pushing for a Palestinian State are either completely stupid or they are really selling out Israel to garner an economic benefit from oil rich Muslim nations that hate Western culture AND Jews.

 

You can to a number of pro-Israel sites that provide the real facts about these haters wrapped in Islam. You can get the quick picture from sites like Palestine Media Watch, Honest Reporting and MEMRI. Here are a couple MEMRI videos showing the villainy of Obama to support these Jew-haters for sovereign nation:

 

Palestinian Cleric Khaled Al-Maghrabi in Al-Aqsa Mosque Address Discusses Annihilation of the Jews and Virgins of Paradise - #5138; October 27, 2015 - 01:54

 

 

MEMRI transcript:

 

In a lesson delivered at the Al-Aqsa Mosque, Palestinian cleric Sheikh Khaled Al-Maghrabi said: "Allah is capable of annihilating the Jews all over the world, down to the very last one." Al-Maghrabi compared the rewards of the martyr in Paradise to those of the murabitun in the Al-Aqsa Mosque, saying that while the martyr gets to be married to two virgins in Paradise, the murabit gets 70 virgins. The lesson was posted on the Internet on October 27, 2015.


 

Following are excerpts:


 

Khaled Al-Maghrabi: In the blink of an eye and with a single word, Allah is capable of annihilating the Jews all over the world, down to the very last one. But what does Allah want? He wants us to act in order to implement His order. We ask ourselves: What should we do to implement the order of Allah? The most important thing we can do to implement the order of Allah… And this is something that exists in the Al-Aqsa Mosque… We say that ribat in the Al-Aqsa Mosque is the most important mission that can be carried out by a person chosen by Allah to be of the people of Al-Aqsa.


 

[…]


 

The Prophet Muhammad said about the martyr: His sins are absolved with the first drop of his blood. The martyr's first reward is that his sins are absolved with the first drop of his blood. The martyr's second reward is to be married to two virgins of Paradise. He gets two virgins from Allah. The third reward is that he can vouch for 70 family members. These are the three things that the martyr gets. Compared to the martyr, the murabit gets [more]. The murabit is married to 70 virgins of Paradise. A martyr gets two, but a murabit gets 70. That's 35 times more than the martyr.

Saudi Sheikh Yahya Al-Jana' Waxes Lyrical about the Joys of the Virgins of Paradise - #5094; September 1, 2015 - 04:00

 

MEMRI transcript:

 

In a lesson posted on the Internet on September 1, 2015, Saudi Sheik Yahya Al-Jana' talks about the joys of Paradise, saying that men will have the strength of a hundred men in Paradise and will be busy "tearing hymens," while the virgins of Paradise, whose breasts are "like pomegranates," become virgins every time again.


Following are excerpts:


Sheikh Yahya Al-Jana': There are not so many women in Paradise. It is mostly men who enter Paradise.


[…]

 

[The Prophet Muhammad] said that some women would not even smell Paradise, although it can be smelled from a distance that would take you 500 years to cross. Why? Because they are unveiled, playing up their charms, wearing tight clothes in shopping malls, and putting on perfume and jewelry, talking to young men, and sending her pictures via filthy social media platforms.


 

Allah described [the virgins of Paradise] very specifically. He even described their beasts: "Indeed, for the pious there is a place of triumph, gardens and grapeyards, and full-breasted women of equal age." "Full-breasted women of equal age" refers to the virgins of Paradise. Allah described their breasts in order to let you know what awaits you in Paradise. There is no shame in talking about these things. [Allah] wants to make you vie for [Paradise]. This message is directed toward people who lose Paradise because they succumb to momentary lust. The breasts of the virgins of Paradise are like pomegranates. They don't sag. Hey are very beautiful. Where are you, lovers of women? Where are you, you desire these virgins? How many people have lost their promised virgins for the sake of one unveiled whore?


 

Allah even mentioned sex, in order to make you lust for Paradise. It is not just food, drink, and happiness. There is also sex, as well as women who are nothing like those you meet in this world. Allah said: "Indeed, the dwellers of Paradise will be busy in joyful things that day. They and their wives will be reclining on adorned couches." Abu Mujliz said that he had asked Ibn 'Abbas: "Allah said that the dwellers of Paradise are busy. What keeps them busy? What keeps them busy, oh Ibn 'Abbas?" [Ibn 'Abbas] said: "They will be busy tearing hymens."


[…]


Is there sex in Paradise? Yes. Ibn 'Abbas narrated that the Prophet Muhammad was asked: "Oh Messenger of Allah, will we have sex with our wives in Paradise, like we do on Earth?" Muhammad said: "By Allah, a man will have a hundred virgins in a single morning." And what is even more amazing is that each time he returns to one of them, he will find that she is a virgins again and that she is even more lustful and feminine. He will find her a virgin again, not like the women in this world, who hymen is ruptured once, and that's it. Every time he returns from meeting Allah, he will find her a virgin again. The dwellers of Paradise will be given the strength of a hundred men when it comes to eating, drinking, and sex, because some of the dwellers of Paradise may be married off to a hundreds virgins, or even more. He will be given the strength of a hundred men, so that in one morning he will be able to have sex with a hundred virgins of Paradise.

Paulson: Our moral compass is broken when our national leaders tell us that an unverifiable agreement to prevent the development of nuclear weapons by a country like Iran that is publicly committed to the destruction of the United States and our ally Israel is good.

 

Out of the mouth of Iran’s Supreme Leader:

 

(CNN) Israel will not exist in another quarter century, Iran's supreme leader, the Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, said during a speech this week in Tehran, state-run media report.

 

"I'd say (to Israel) that they will not see (the end) of these 25 years," the Islamic Republic News Agency quoted Khamenei as saying Wednesday at the Imam Khomeini Mosque.

 

Khamenei raised the issue while discussing the recent nuclear deal between Iran and the so-called P5+1 -- the United States, United Kingdom, France, Germany, China and Russia -- by which, among other things, Iran agreed to cut its uranium stockpiles and centrifuges and limit uranium enrichment in exchange for the West lifting sanctions against the Islamic Republic. … CNN 9/11/15

 

The official Obama Administration response to the constant “death to America” chants are nothing political rhetoric to appease their populace. Even Iran’s President Rouhani and Supreme Leader have backed up the Obama assertion. It is electorate idiocy to believe anyone in Obama Administration or anyone in Iran agreeing with the “rhetoric” propaganda.

 

It seems as if every day now the Iranians work hard to signal to the world that the nuclear deal was simply a step forward for them in their campaign of rage, hatred and ultimate genocide, and not what Barack Obama and John Kerry are claiming that it is: a step by the Iranians into the peaceful family of nations.

 

“Iranians Rally Around ‘Down With U.S.’ Social Media Campaign,” by Adam Kredo, Washington Free Beacon, November 4, 2015:

 

“Iranians stormed social media sites on Wednesday to participate in a new state-sanctioned campaign urging users to explain in a written message on their hand why they hate America and support its destruction, according to multiple posts and regional reports.

 

 

The campaign, dubbed “Why Down With U.S.?” has already sparked thousands of posts by Iranians, according to Iran’s state-controlled Mehr News Agency. READ ENTIRETYJihad Watch 11/5/15 4:22 AM

Slaughter Of The Innocents: ISIS Kills 200 Captive Syrian Children In Horrific Mass Execution [Video]

 

** WARNING: Graphic Content – Note: There are reports this video is from a year ago now.

 

An ISIS militant starts firing at point blank range at a group of Syrian children who are executed by the barbaric Jihadists.

 

Words fail me. This is a new low in barbarism even for the butchers of ISIS. The blood-thirsty Jihadists made 200 Syrian children march out, line up and lie on their stomachs. They then massacred all of them. It is one of the most sickening mass executions I have ever seen and that is saying something. They were forced to lie side by side in a line with their faces in the dirt. At least a dozen gunmen shot into them using rifles and handguns.

LIVE: Hillary Clinton Benghazi Hearing

Democratic presidential frontrunner and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is appearing today before the House Select Committee investigating the 2012 Benghazi attack in Libya that killed U.S. Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans.

Washington observers and political junkies have been fixated on this testimony -- which began at 10 a.m. -- for months, waiting in anticipation to see what impact it may have on her campaign.

The pressure is on Republican Committee Chairman Rep. Trey Gowdy to produce results or information that differs from Clinton's full day of Congressional testimony on the attack nearly 3 years ago.

Paulson write: Our moral compass is broken when Donald Trump can ride high in GOP polls and hog free media coverage by making grandiose claims and providing daily provocative, personal attacks on other candidates. Candidates without integrity may rise early at the expense of others in a culture without a moral compass. After all, in such cultures, winning is all that matters! In moral cultures, when such lack of character is revealed, support evaporates.

 

The integrity broken moral compass is probably what caught the eye of Justin Smith. He is not a fan of Donald Trump. However, I do understand why the Donald is popular. Trump’s criticism of a broken immigration policy that allows dangerous people to hop, jump and skip their way across the American border has driven concerned Americans crazy for quite some time. Even though Trump’s wall proposal is a bit ridiculously a non-starter, it sounds like the voice of American frustration.

 

Let’s be honest. A cutthroat corporate business type might sound like good leadership when Americans have witnessed seven of President Barack Hussein Obama wimpifying the American image from the beginning of his community organizing deception promising a utopian change that never came. Or at least never came for the better of America.

 

Do you consider Obama a man of integrity? I sure don’t!

 

Honestly I have a sense that Donald Trump’s integrity is based on what affects his own bottom line. The Donald is Conservative to achieve an objective. Trump is just as capable of supporting abhorrent Left Wing ideas as a bargaining chip to achieve the greater good of his bottom line agenda. This is the primary reason I won’t be voting for Donald Trump in my state’s Primary.

 

Terry Paulson finishes his thoughts quoting Isaiah 5:20 admonishing voters to discern those who call good as evil from those who call evil as good. Good advice.

One of the biggest errors of the Obama Administration (OUT OF MANY ERRORS) is not only allowing but encouraging Muslim immigrants allegedly fleeing violence in their home nations. Brigitte Gabriel of ACT for America has sent out an email to raise grassroots support against Obama’s most recent plan to bring Syrian Muslim refugees into the USA. If any Syrians are allowed into our nation when ONLY Christians should immigrate who appreciate the USA rather than the hate-America Muslims with their typical rage.

No Syrian Refugees to the U.S.

Send a Strong Message to Congress Today

 

By Brigitte Gabriel

Sent by ACT for America

 

This is a dangerous time, and American citizens must be ready to take action to protect the country -- now.

 

A refugee invasion is currently taking place in Europe and transforming the continent into Eurabia right before our very eyes.

 

Each day we see more of the devastating impact that hundreds of thousands of Syrian refugees are having in welcoming countries. Many of these “refugees” are neither Syrian nor refugees. Many of them do not even speak Arabic, cannot tell you where they came from in Syria, and have no official documents. They make up their own names and there is no way to accurately vet them.

 

They are Afghans fleeing the Taliban; Eritreans fleeing their own oppressive government; and many thousands more hail from Iraq, Pakistan, and sub-Saharan Africa.

 

And to top it all off, ISIS has declared that they have already smuggled 4,000 of their members into Europe as refugees.

 

Areas housing the refugees have seen an increase in refugee rape, theft, gang activity, intimidation, and organized crime. German media are now reporting that thousands of these so-called “refugees” have already disappeared and are now in Germany -- unaccounted for.

 

This is but a foreshadowing of what will take place in our nation soon, if our government is foolish enough to follow suit – and President Obama and his Administration already have announced plans to increase the number of refugees accepted by the U.S. to at least 100,000 next year.

 

Click HERE to see information about terrorists who came to the U.S. as refugees, only to commit terror attacks against Americans - including the Tsarnaev Brothers/Boston Bombers.

 

We must stop this insanity. If the citizens of this nation band together to speak a resounding “NO” to our elected officials – we can.

 

But we need your help.

 

ACT for America has successfully stopped other out of control policy trains by using the petition as a tool, gathering over 100,000 signatures.

 

There is power in numbers.

 

Please take just a few minutes of your valuable time, RIGHT NOW, to sign our Open Letter to the U.S. Congress – expressing your strong opposition to allowing ANY Syrian refugees into the United States.

 

Your name, along with tens of thousands of others who sign the petition, will be hand delivered to the leadership in the U.S. Congress by our Director of Government Relations. They will receive our message, loud and clear.

 

Silence and inactivity by the American grassroots will turn the U.S. into the same refugee nightmare that Europe and other nations are currently experiencing – a situation that won’t be easily rectified.

 

We must say “NO” NOW! We must stop any effort to bring tens of thousands of Syrian refugees into the U.S. – NOW – before it’s too late.

 

You can help make a difference by signing our Open Letter.

 

And, if you haven’t already, please join our growing Refugee Resettlement Working Group, so you can learn more about what you can do back home in your community to address this dangerous issue.

 

Our Working Group just held an important conference call with U.S. Representative Brian Babin, who has introduced legislation to stop Syrian refugees from coming to the United States. The Working Group will be actively supporting this bill and others like it, and will be working on other important tasks as well during the days ahead – all geared toward stopping this flood of refugees.

 

Please sign our open letter TODAY and forward this important message to everyone you know.

 

And always remember, if EACH of us does just a little, TOGETHER we can accomplish a lot.

 

Thank you.

 

Always devoted,

On November 4, 2015 Faisal Mohammad (18 yr. old) stabbed four people on the University of California Merced campus. I’m curious. When you first of this incident (if you even did), did you happen to hear a crazy Muslim Freshman student set out on a psycho-jihad spree to kill as many non-Muslims as he could find? Probably not.

UC Merced stabber “devout Muslim,” manifesto included “praise Allah,” beheading plan

 

By ROBERT SPENCER

NOVEMBER 6, 2015 10:55 PM

Jihad Watch

 

“The 18-year-old freshman wrote a numeric list outlining his plans of who he wanted to kill, and how, including beheading and shooting his victims, Merced County Sheriff Vern Warnke told FoxNews.com…’No. 27 was to “make sure people are tied down,” No. 28 was “sit down and praise Allah.”‘”

 

Then Warnke tells us this had nothing to do with Islam. The capacity for self-deceit and denial is endless, as authorities in the U.S. seem to have an indomitable will to make Islam look good, no matter what the facts of the case may be.

 

 Faisal Mohammad

 

“Campus stabber’s manifesto included ‘praise for Allah,’ plan for beheading,” by Malia Zimmerman and Hollie McKay, Fox News, November 6, 2015 (thanks to Bulldog):

 

“A handwritten manifesto carried by a California college student whose stabbing spree Wednesday left four wounded bore names of his targets, a vow “to cut someone’s head off” and as many as five reminders to “praise Allah,” law enforcement authorities told FoxNews.com, while insisting that neither terrorism nor religion appear to be motives in the attack.

 

In the two-page document found in Faisal Mohammad’s pocket by the county coroner, the 18-year-old freshman wrote a numeric list outlining his plans of who he wanted to kill, and how, including beheading and shooting his victims, Merced County Sheriff Vern Warnke told FoxNews.com[.]

 

“No. 27 was to ‘make sure people are tied down,’ No. 28 was “sit down and praise Allah,’” Warnke said. “I remember seeing four or five times, scribbled on the side of the two-page manifesto, where he wrote something like ‘praise Allah.’”

 

The manifesto has not been released, but Warnke expects it to be within the next few days.

 

Mohammad’s intended bloodbath began around 8 a.m., when he burst into his classroom with an 8-inch hunting knife. Police said it would have continued – and possibly claimed lives – if he hadn’t been interrupted by a construction team, and then shot dead by police.

 

“There was a gruesome statement he made about wanting to cut someone’s head off and kill two people with one bullet, and he planned to shoot the police,” Warnke said. “He did not have a firearm with him and didn’t seem to have a lot of experience with firearms because he thought he could kill two people with one bullet. He reminded himself in the list to raise the gun slowly. He scripted everything out in chronological order.”

 

But all law enforcement involved in the investigation, including Warnke, continued to maintain that there is no evidence Mohammed is tied to a terrorist group or was inspired by terrorists.

 

“There was nothing to indicate he was doing this because of Allah, or because he was going to be rewarded with 72 virgins, or because of ties to a terror group,” Warnke said. “He appeared to be a devout Muslim, on the strong side of the belief.”

 

The FBI is thoroughly investigating this angle, Warnke said.

 

“There was nothing on his computer or in his dorm room or in the manifesto to suggest any ties to terrorism or terrorists groups,” Warnke said.

 

As a wannabe killer, Mohammed was cold and calculating.

 

Mohammed slashed and stabbed four people, including two students, a student aide and Byron Price, a 31-year-old construction manager who intervened.

 

“He had a smile on his face, he was having fun, which is more the thing that bothers me,” said Byron Price, who was managing the construction site at the university for his family’s construction company.

 

Mohammed fled the classroom after he was overwhelmed by Price and another construction worker who was about to hit Mohammed with a ladder.

 

“He was banking on the fear factor. …His plan went haywire because people fought back,” Warnke said. “He got so befuddled at the activities that happened; it took the script away from him.”…

Faisal Mohammad: 5 Fast Facts You Need to Know

 

By Paul Farrell

Published 8:53 am EST, November 5, 2015 Updated 10:00 pm EST, November 5, 2015

Heavy.com

 

An 18-year-old named Faisal Mohammad “had a smile on his face” as he stabbed four people at a University of California campus in Merced, according to witnesses. He was shot and killed by campus police officers who responded to the school after hearing about the attack. The incident occurred on the morning of November 4 in the town of Merced, just over100 miles east of San Jose. A statement from the school said that the attack happened outdoors on the campus in front of the Classroom and Office Building. Later it emerged that the stabbing began inside of a classroom and spilled out into the front of the building.

 

Here’s what you need to know:

The alert about the stabbing first came from the school’s Twitter account at around 8 a.m. on November 4. Mohammad was a student at the school with his age being described, incorrectly, as “early 20s,” reports The Merced Sun Star. The paper was quoting Merced County Sheriff Vern Warnke, who has his deputies assisting the Merced Campus police in the investigation. Warnke later said that investigators found “duct tape, zip ties & hammer” in Mohammad’s book bag, the sheriff added “He intended to do more harm.” Later, ABC Fresno reported that cops found a manifesto on Mohammad’s person which detailed individuals that he wished to attack. The station says that one person in particular had kicked the suspect out of a study group.

 

 

CBS Fresno’s Janelle Bludau reports that the officer who shot Mohammad “was a former sheriff’s deputy.” The suspect was a computer science and engineering major.

Five people have been stabbed at the University of California, Merced, the school announced via Twitter. The suspect was shot and killed.

 

An official statement from the school confirmed that Mohammad had been shot and killed by responding officers. Erroneous reports had earlier stated that Mohammad had been arrested by officers. LA Times reporter Hailey Brandons-Potts reports that Mohammad was shot dead on a bridge, about 40 yards from the building where the stabbing began, that most students use to walk to classes.

He told Your Central Valley that after being stabbed a coworker drove him to a nearby hospital. In an interview with the station, Price added that he was working outside the building where the stabbing took place. After hearing screaming, Price went to see what had happened. “Upon opening the door to the classroom, the suspect attacked him with a knife,” during which point he was stabbed although he did manage to kick Mohammad. He later told Your Central Valley “I just kind of kicked at him. It was a really big knife and he was swinging it down so I figured if I was on the ground and my feet were at him, he could get my legs and not my body. And it turned out, it worked.”

 

According to his Facebook page, Price just got engaged on October 14, around 2 weeks before the attack. Speaking to CBS Fresno, Price said that Mohammad “had a smile on his face, he was having fun – which is more what bothers me.” He also told the station that the whole incident made him think “differently about having a concealed weapon.” Merced County Sheriff Vern Warnke described Price as a hero saying “Without him, the first victim could have been a lot worse off, or even dead.”

 

One student, who was not a victim, described the weapon as being a “10-12 inch blade.” It was later confirmed that the knife was 8-10 inches in length. The Los Angeles Times described it as a “hunting knife.”

Speaking to Fox News, Veryan Khan of the Terrorism Research & Analysis Consortium (TRAC), a group that monitors terrorist groups on social media, said the attack has been praised on ISIS-linked Twitter accounts. Khan said “Over the past three days, the Islamic State has released nineteen videos encouraging Palestinians stabbing attacks on Israel. The media campaign coincides with a wave of renewed violence between Israel and Palestine, after a wave of seemingly lone wolf attacks by Palestinians targeting Israelis.”

 

NBC reporter Andrew Blankenstein tweeted that terrorism has been ruled out by investigators.

VIDEO: From Mass Stabbing to Gun Control: Dylan Quick Could've been Shooting 14 People to Death

On Fox News with Megyn Kelly, Stephen Maida, one of the students who tackled the Suspect in Lone Star College Mass Stabbing explained why he doesn't think guns would have improved the situation on campus.


"if you look at the kids at the school and more of the people that are around here, seeing them with a gun would worry me more, and to know how easy they get provoked and how crazy they can be. This kid, instead of stabbing people, he could have been shooting all 14 people, and all 14 people could have been dead."

 

In April 2013, 14 people were stabbed inside classrooms at Lone Star Community College in Cypress, Texas. The suspect in the crime, Dylan Quick, had to be subdued by other students. He later pleaded guilty to three counts of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon. Court documents showed that he told officers about his fantasies of killing people at the school. He had been born deaf but had a cochlear implant.

Why Jihad Watch?

 

Why Jihad Watch? Because non-Muslims in the West, as well as in India, China, Russia, and the world over, are facing a concerted effort by Islamic jihadists, the motives and goals of whom are largely ignored by the Western media, to destroy their societies and impose Islamic law upon them — and to commit violence to that end even while their overall goal remains out of reach. That effort goes under the general rubric of jihad.

 

Jihad (Arabic for “struggle”) is a central duty of every Muslim. Muslim theologians have spoken of many things as jihads: the struggle within the soul, defending the faith from critics, supporting its growth and defense financially, even migrating to non-Muslim lands for the purpose of spreading Islam. But violent jihad is a constant of Islamic history and a central element of Islamic theology. Many passages of the Qur’an and sayings of the Islamic prophet Muhammad are used by jihad warriors today to justify their actions and gain new recruits. No major Muslim group has ever repudiated the doctrines of armed jihad. The theology of jihad, which denies unbelievers equality of human rights and dignity, is available today for anyone with the will and means to bring it to life.

 

In Islamic history and doctrine violent jihad is founded on numerous verses of the Qur’an — most notably, one known in Islamic theology as the “Verse of the Sword”: “Then, when the sacred months have passed, slay the idolaters wherever ye find them, and take them (captive), and besiege them, and prepare for them each ambush. But if they repent and establish worship and pay the poor-due, then leave their way free. Lo! Allah is forgiving, merciful” (9:5). Establishing “regular worship” and paying the “poor-due” (zakat) means essentially that they will become Muslim, as these READ THE REST

Peter van Dalen

 

It will CU-SGP representative Van Dalen no surprise when the Pakistani government changes the law on blasphemy. "Something is changing," he said Wednesday evening just before returning from Pakistan.

 

 

The blasphemy laws are widely misused to fight out disputes between neighbors or financial issues, says Van Dalen. "Malicious neighbors see Christians soon something of blasphemy. There is also a victim of Asia Bibi."

 

 

Van Dalen could hear all conversations consent resonate with a ruling by Pakistan's Supreme Court last week. "It called for changes in the blasphemy law, in part because Christian minorities were often victims of. By this statement we found everywhere an open ear. A minister even promised our request on the agenda of the Cabinet."

 

But a remark in a judgment of a supreme court still does not lead directly to reform?

 

"Not in itself. Nevertheless, we noticed that it was taken. I think there is a change to. Something is changing. Of course, Pakistan is particularly sensitive in the wallet. Early next year we talk in Parliament about the position of Pakistan as a privileged partner. Then I insist again on reform."

 

You have also met the man of Asia Bibi. There were more alarming reports about her health. How is she?

 

"She's doing well. She has learned to read and will read daily in her Bible. She also enjoys certain freedom of movement. " -- Van Dalen (CU-SGP): Asia Bibi read daily in her Bible – Google Translation: Dutch to English; By Evert van Vlastuin; Reformatorisch Dagblad (About from Dutch WikipediaGoogle Translation); 11/5/2015 16:06, Updated 11/5/15 16:24)

 

Me thinks MEP Van Dalen from the Netherlands is a bit too optimistic about change in the Islamic Republic of Pakistan. It should be noted that the EU nations seem more accepting of Muslim immigrants than persecuted Christian refugees from Muslim dominated nations. Nonetheless it is my feeling that such promising words from a European Parliament delegation to Pakistan undoubtedly produces hope in the hearts of Pakistani persecuted Christians. I just pray it is not false hope.

EU Care for Pakistani Christians

EU delegation visit to Pak

 EU delegation – Shamim Masih 2nd from Left

ISLAMABAD: European Parliament delegation urged Pakistan to bring reforms in blasphemy law and ensure the safety of the minority rights in Pakistan. European parliamentarians are aware and care for Pakistani Christians, said Peter van Dalen, a lead delegate.

According to the details, European Parliament mission led by Mr. Peter van Dalen (Netherlands), Mr. Arne Gericke (Germany) and Mr. Marek Jurek (Poland) visited Pakistan between 2 -5 November, 2015. The mission aims at a fact finding on blasphemy laws in Pakistan and their application. The delegation met high interlocutors from the government and representatives of the civil society. During the meeting with advisor to the Prime Minister Sartaj Aziz [See Also HERE], EU delegation demanded to carry out thorough review of the blasphemy law and its current application, in particular section 295-B & C of the penal code.

  

Peter Van Dalen, a lead delegate said that the EU believes that there is now momentum for Pakistan to start closing the dark chapter of its blasphemy legislation. By doing so, Pakistan would apply its founding principles, as well as its international obligations under for example the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights and the conditions attached to GSP+ trade benefits [See Also HERE] granted by the EU.

 

The EU parliament delegation has handed over the handout to the high officials including Sartaj Aziz and other high officials and demanded the safety of the minority rights. It said “the legislation which is supposed to protect and safeguard instead has drenched large parts of Pakistan’s society in fear. During the recent decade the security situation has gone to worse in Pakistan. Especially minorities of the country feel insecure in Pakistan thus Pakistan stands in the top ten source countries of people seeking asylum in the EU.” The EU parliamentarians said that the blasphemy law direct or indirectly affect them as well.

 

Later the delegation visited H-9 slum area and met with displaced people of Rimsha case (a Christian minor girl accused of blasphemy in Islamabad). The delegation ensured the slum settlers that the EU will support the slums of the capital as well the people persecuted in Pakistan.  Peter Van Dalen also prayed for the safety of the community and a better future.

The sources confirm that the delegation visited Youhanabad and met with the victims of the incident. The Punjab government has arrested many Christians after the twin church blast in Youhanabad accusing them of lynching two suspects involved in bomb blasts [See Also HERE]. Joseph Francis, Director CLAAS, briefed them on the present situation of the case and also shared his concern in this regard. The EU delegation showed their greater sympathy to the victims and affectees of the incident. Later the delegation met with Asia Bibi’s family in Lahore. 

 

 

Be Blessed,
