The threat of Muslims who consider the commands of the Quran to be very words of their alleged divine deity known as Allah are making American homegrown attempts at punishing those who expose Islam as a violent theopolitical religion. A Muslim thug by the name of Usaama Rahim plotted to behead Pamela Geller for her organizing involvement in Garland TX Mohammed cartoon contest. Rahim decided on an easier target that being the Boston Police, but the Police shot him to death before he executed his knife wielding plot. A co-conspirator (David Wright) was picked and arraigned for attempting to destroy mobile phone evidence of the plot interaction.

The ISB has spawned several wanna-be terrorists and terrorists (See Also HERE) who aimed violence and murder against non-Muslim Americans. Those potential targeted Americans would be about 98% in the USA since the Muslim population is roughly 2%.

 

Pamela Geller’s fellow Counterjihad writer Robert Spencer was interviewed about the Geller plot on CNN. Not surprisingly the CNN interviewers were a bit comparative toward Geller and Spencer gentlemanly defends Geller’s Free Speech American Rights.

Pamela Geller to CNN’s Chris Cuomo: ‘They’re Going to Come for You, Too, Chris’. Chris Cuomo GRILLS Pamela Geller Muslims Are Not Savages. Geller Responds To Boston Be*ea*ing Plot ‘I’m the hunted one': Pamela Geller targeted for beheading by Boston terror suspect Pamela Geller reacted to news that she had been targeted for beheading by a man shot dead by Boston police by saying pretty much what she always says.


“This is a showdown for American freedom,” the anti-Muslim activist said. “Will we stand against this savagery or bow down to them and silence ourselves?”


Boston police fatally shot Usaamah Abdullah Rahim on Tuesday morning after he was stopped for questioning in the alleged plot – which at one point had targeted the 56-year-old organizer of a “Draw Muhammad” contest last month in Texas that ended with police killing two gunmen outside the event.


However, authorities said the 26-year-old Rahim had abandoned those plans and had instead decided to kill law enforcement officers.


“They targeted me for violating sharia blasphemy laws,” Geller said. “They mean to kill everyone who doesn’t do their bidding and abide by them voluntarily.”


Geller, whose American Freedom Defense Initiative frequently organizes provocative demonstrations against Islam, said she was not surprised to be targeted for harm.


“This is a war,” she said.


CNN’s Erin Burnett asked Geller if she “relished” being a target after “stoking the flames.”


“Relish being the target?” Geller asked. “Who self-promotes to get killed?”


She complained that CNN cited the Southern Poverty Law Center’s extensive database on her anti-Islam activities in reporting on the terror plot against her.


“Why do you use the Southern Poverty Law Center, a notorious communist group, to smear me?” Geller asked. “I’m the hunted one. I’m the hunted one. This is incredible to me.”

Boston police confirm blogger Pam Geller was initial target of beheading plot

 

From Fox News - Associated Press

June 04, 2015

Fox News

 

BOSTON –  A Boston man who was shot to death by terror investigators who had him under 24-hour surveillance initially talked about beheading blogger Pamela Geller before deciding to target police officers, Boston police said Thursday.

 

"There was some mention of that name," said Police Commissioner William Evans, speaking on the "Today" show. Evans also said he considered the talk about killing Geller "more along the lines of wishful thinking."

 

Geller — a combative personality known for provoking Muslims by campaigning against a mosque near the World Trade Center site in New York, sponsoring inflammatory advertisements and organizing Prophet Muhammad cartoon contest in Texas — wasn't surprised that she may have been a target.

 

"They want to make an example out of me to frighten the rest of the US into silence and submission," Geller wrote in an e-mail to the AP on Thursday. "This is not about me. This is about whether the US will stand for freedom or submit and cower before violent intimidation."

 

Usaama Rahim, 26, was killed Tuesday by anti-terror investigators who tried to question him.

 

Authorities told his family that they would show them a police video of the shooting before making it public. They say it shows police retreating up as Rahim lunges at them with a military-style knife, then shooting when he refused to drop it.

 

Rahim's brother, Ibrahim Rahim, is a prominent religious scholar among Muslims and African-Americans in Boston. He initially disputed the police account, saying his brother was shot three times in the back, but released a statement Thursday calling on Muslims to "remain calm" and pray.

 

Rahim's family announced a news conference at the shooting scene for later Thursday afternoon. They also hired two lawyers to ensure a "complete and transparent investigation," said Ronald Sullivan, one of the attorneys.

 

The FBI said Rahim plotted to commit some kind of attack, and ordered three large knives on Amazon.com a week before he was confronted by the anti-terrorism task force that had him under 24-hour surveillance.

 

The FBI said police confronted Rahim after he told his nephew, David Wright, in a telephone conversation they were monitoring on Tuesday that he had changed his mind about beheading an out-of-state victim and instead planned to kill local police officers either Tuesday or Wednesday.

 

"Yeah, I'm going to be on vacation right here in Massachusetts," Rahim allegedly said. "I'm just going to, ah, go after them, those boys in blue."

 

An FBI affidavit supporting a criminal complaint against Wright said "going on vacation" was their code for committing violent jihad.

 

Wright, meanwhile, was recorded saying something about "thinking with your head on your chest," the FBI said, explaining that this was a reference to the beheadings shown in Islamic State propaganda videos.

 

Nowhere in the evidence made public thus far in this case does either man actually say the word "beheading."

The Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) Movement that operates to condemn Israel for not allowing Arabs who call themselves the mythical Palestinians (who never EXISTED as a national entity let alone existing as an independent nation), is essentially an Antisemitic Movement given a pass because of the propaganda that mythological Palestinians were booted out of their homes by Jews who originated primarily from Europe. The historical facts on Jews living in the Land of Israel are HERE. The Biblical facts that determines that the Holy Land is the Land of the Jews are HERE.

 

And as Ari Bussel will share a lot of that validity added Antisemitism comes from Left Wing Jews both inside and outside of Israel. This Jewish self-loathing would be like Black Liberation Theology Movement (See Also HERE & HERE) African Americans demanding a Caucasian free independent nation within America with a demand that a more economic astute USA supply the infrastructure while BLT nationalists plant the overthrow and slaughter of non-Black Americans to possess an expanded nation.

 

Both situations are IDIOTIC!

Too Little, Too Late

The Response to BDS

 

By Ari Bussel

Sent: 6/3/2015 5:36 PM

 

Like flowers after the first rain, there are signs Israel is waking up in the face of the strongest resurgence of anti-Semitism in the past eighty years.

 

In the United States, Jews have been living under the illusion that “it will not happen here.”  In fact, if a classroom of high school students were asked if the Holocaust could reoccur today, the answer would be bewilderment.   Back in 1981, a movie The Wave was based on a true story, a teacher who set out to show his students how the non-imaginable can become a frightening reality.

 

We feel secure.  We also did not expect attacks on US soil.  September 11, 2001, showed us that was a false belief.

 

While American Jews do not expect a repetition of the Holocaust, today we are on the verge of a volcano about to erupt.  It has become acceptable to blame Israel for the world’s faults and hold her to a different standard than any other nation.

 

It is now the norm to remain quiet, seated and focused when the most abhorrent lies about Israel are uttered in public.  Teachers believe Israel is the New Nazis.  Students at universities are being brainwashed insane falsehoods like Israelis murder children at will, harvest organs from males and do not even bother to rape Gazan women since they are not viewed as human.  (Apparently, modern-day Israelis are much worse than the Nazis, for the Nazis had special accommodations for female sex servitude.)

 

All is done in broad daylight, with respected professors and politicians, business people and members of the clergy present, often themselves propagating the lies.

 

And society remains silent.

 

Apparently, our education fails us.  If we remember “First They Came for the …” by Pastor Martin Niemoller and witness the very same thing and standby silently, we have learned nothing, and as students of history know, those who ignore the past are doomed to repeat it.

 

One may rise to object:  “It is quite confusing,” they would say.  “Israelis and Jews themselves are at the forefront of the criticism– why blame us?”  And that person would be correct.

 

In fact the same question is raised by both sides; with Israel’s detractors using this line as justification that their quest is just, while Israel’s defenders ask themselves repeatedly, in utter frustration – why should we fight when some of the worse detractors are Israelis or Jews?
 

Switzerland used this line to reject Israel’s official protest against an exhibition by a NGO “Breaking the Silence.”  It replied via official channels that it is an Israeli organization, legitimately recognized in Israel, bringing Israelis to Switzerland to present what they have to present.  We will not stop them!

 

Good for the Swiss!  The Canadians would have acted differently, but they are the sole exception.  Why is Israel demanding from others what she permits herself?

 

When Israel decides to fight, she has the tools, resources, knowhow and drive.  At the moment, none exists.  The new anti-Semitism erupting like a volcano has been ignored for so long, and so many Israelis and Jews have participated in the upcoming avalanche, any attempt to act now is doomed to be “too little, too late.”

 

In fact, today, those at the helm face fierce internal opposition. We have grown so accustomed to attacking Israel, why stop? Branded as “right wing extremists,” the Government is being confronted with the accusation it is attempting to stifle free speech and the very democracy of which Israel is so proud.

 

It is interesting that those who were aiding and abating Israel’s detractors here in the USA are starting to feel the pinch.  They are at the forefront of “fighting BDS” (the movement to Boycott, Divest and Sanction Israel, a front that legitimizes any false verbal attack against Israel as the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth). 

 

Israel and the other eight or so million Jews who live around the world outside Israel have not yet felt the pervasive, vicious and vindictive force about to be unleashed.  When it does, Israel will have no other choice but to absorb the Jews fleeing to her shores and begin fighting back. 

 

In Israel we are taught that victory cannot come from being on the defensive.  Apparently, we forgot, or did not properly learn, that vital lesson as well.

The Scout Oath

Robert G. Smith

Updated: 5/26/2015 4:55 PM

 

In recent days the Director of The Boy Scouts of America, the former Secretary of Defense Robert Gates, has determined that homosexuals must be allowed to become scouts.

 

As a former scout I know the oath that each scout must take on becoming a scout.

 

The oath: On my honor I will do my best to do my duty to GOD and my country. To obey the scout laws. To help other people at all times. To keep myself physically strong, mentally awake and MORALLY STRAIGHT.

 

[Blog Editor: Apparently Gates is pursuing the long term Obama agenda of transforming America into an immoral Left Wing paradigm.]

 

Homosexuality is a perversion and committing of immoral acts that are condemned by the Christian and Jewish faiths.

 

It should not be allowed to taint an honorable institution like The Boy Scouts of America. This sort of advocacy and advancement for immoral lifestyles to be inserted into heretofore morally guided and largely Christian institutions and organizations must be stopped. It is tearing down the fabric of our society.

Racism

Robert G. Smith

Sent: Mon 6/1/2015 11:37 PM

 

A belief that some races are by nature superior to others has been with us since the different races began to intermingle.

 

Prior to that it was tribalism. An example are the Native Americans. Until the white man landed in America they only had seen others of their own race but were constantly at war with other tribes.

 

Racism is for those with lesser intellects and those with a need to be superior to other human beings. You will find racists in every color, white, black, red, yellow, and brown. I am sure if there were striped and polka dot [people] there would be racists among them.

 

I have served in three wars, two of them as a combat infantryman and I have seen many wounded and dead of all colors. The thing I noticed most all of them [is that they] bleed the same color.

 

I have met many racists and most of them had several things in common, a lack of common sense and intelligence. They also had a sense of superiority and the need to prove it and the need to be right in all things at all times.

 

Here in our country the largest showing of racism is between the blacks and whites.

 

There are however many blacks and whites who are endeavoring to end the racial divide and to help the races live together in peace and harmony. There are also those, both black and white, who keep agitating each other causing racial turmoil.

 

I will first name some of those who are trying to end the strife between the races that will allow us to coexist in a peaceful and friendly manner.

 

Some who are working toward those goals to name a few - Allen West, Dr. Carol Swain, Deneen Borelli, David Webb, Kelly Wright, Bill O'Reilly, Laura Ingraham, Niger Innis, A. B. Stoddard, Harris Faulkner, Sean Hannity, Ben Carson, Alveda King, Herman Cain, Sheriff David Clark, and the list goes on.

 

Some of those who are continually agitating and race baiting are, Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson, Michelle ObamaBarack Obama, Louis Farrakhan, Jeremiah Wright, Eric Holder, Rahm Emanuel and sundry others that make a living from it.

 

And yes black lives matter as the lives of any other race. However if you put yourself in a confrontational [posture] with law enforcement officers you are putting yourself in danger.

 

We know there are racists in all positions of authority. These people must be confronted and eliminated from the organizations they represent. All Americans of all races must take a stand to eliminate where ever it exists. Then and only then will we have conquered the ugly existence of racism.

It is no wonder Conspiracy Theories abound about the Federal Government exerting martial law type authority over Americans – the most recent being Jade Helm 15 (debunked by Justin Smith). President Barack Hussein Obama has issued the old pen and paper action giving the Federal Government power over Private Property via the bureaucracy of the Environment Protection Agency (EPA) managing water. Justin Smith has the story exposing once again the nefariousness of the Leftist-in-Chief.

The Ditch Rule

Water and Oppressive Power

 

By Justin O. Smith

Sent: 5/30/2015 9:29 PM

 

Barack Obama has once again exhibited his despotic nature by enacting the Environmental Protection Agency's purposefully vague Waters of the United States [WOTUS] "Rule" on May 27, 2015, through executive order, which ignores previous  Congressional and Supreme Court actions blocking this rule for good reason. This "rule" amounts to an unrestrained federal intrusion, that is nothing more than a power grab for control over Americans' privately owned lands, rather than an added effort towards improving and providing clean water standards.

 

While the EPA already has a great deal of power under the Clean Water Act of 1972, this new Waters "Rule" gives the EPA and the Army Corps of Engineers massive sweeping powers and broad authority over all the water in the United States, long claimed by the EPA, to limit pollution through a new revised definition of "navigable waterways," to include traditional navigable water and interstate water, such as the Mississippi and Columbia Rivers and the Chesapeake Bay, and natural man-made streams, lakes, ponds and wetlands. They also claim the authority to govern impoundments, canals and ditches.

 

In July 2014, Gina McCarthy, EPA director, stated: "We are talking about ditches that used to be streams and still act like streams. They may not have running water, but still act like streams," adding, "I never expected to say the word 'ditch' this many times in my entire life ... ."

 

McCarthy recently asserted that these new powers would not interfere with private property rights or land use. McCarthy also suggested that the rule would make it easier "to identify protected waters" and that these protections would now be "consistent with the law."

 

What "law" was McCarthy referencing?

 

Congress voted against this rule 262-152 last year, and the Senate voted against it 59-40 [See Also HERE] on a non-binding amendment to the Senate budget resolution as a test of support for blocking WOTUS. The U.S. Supreme Court has twice questioned the breadth of just the EPA's powers decreed under the Clean Water Act alone. So Obama simply went ahead and unilaterally circumvented the will of the people.

 

No one should rest comfortably on McCarthy's assurances that concerns have been met, since, as noted by Farm Bureau President Bob Stallman, the EPA has a long record of blatantly lying in the past. The Waters Rule's own language seems to contradict McCarthy, because the vague term "significant nexus" allows the EPA alone to determine if a farmer's ditch affects some tributary to a regulated navigable waterway or regulated body of water.

 

One of the most controversial aspects of the rule is the provision that allows the EPA to regulate wetlands on farms and on the yards of private suburban homes, by designating them "regional treasures." In the past, this "rule" has been used to force private land owners to relinquish property to the federal government, which demonstrates the extent of the EPA's abuse of power and supports calls to abolish this rule.

 

Groups that throw their full support behind this rule, such as the Sierra Club and the Natural Resources Defense Council, want these EPA rules to be as broad as possible. They view this through simplistic logic, as they insist that all water sources and tributaries must be "protected" in order to protect the larger bodies of water. Ironically, most small bodies of water have already been regulated by the state and local government agencies for many years.

 

Small businesses were inappropriately excluded from the rule-making process, and yet, these businesses will be most dramatically impacted by this outrageous expansion of the EPA's and the Army Corps of Engineers' power and authority, although private property owners too will be heavily burdened unnecessarily with bureaucratic red-tape. If one fails to secure permits to perform potentially polluting activities, such as tilling or building, near bodies of water, a person can be sued by the EPA, environmental advocates and even other private citizens over violations of this new Waters "Rule."

 

Expressing his concerns, Daren Bakst, an agriculture expert and senior research fellow at the Heritage Foundation, stated: "This will be devastating to private property rights. It's an attack on private property rights. Most people don't have the money to pay for all these permits."

 

The U.S. House of Representatives understands the many dangers to be found in the Waters of the United States Rule, and anticipating Obama's action, they passed the Regulatory Integrity Protection Act (HR 1732) on May 12th, in order to force the EPA and the Army Corps of Engineers to cease the implementation of the Water Rule and to consult with the states and industries before writing a new proposal. The 261-155 vote included "yes" votes from 24 Democrats, like Jim Cooper (Tenn) and Gwen Graham (Fla), of whom two sit on the Energy and Commerce Committee and eight on the Agriculture Committee.

 

While Senator James Inhofe (R-OK) promises that SB 1140 will "halt [the] EPA's unprecedented land grab" this summer, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce and the American Farm Bureau have lawsuits underway to challenge the EPA. Most legal experts expect that this battle for control of America's waters will go before the Supreme Court. And based on precedents set in the Supreme Court, it is already pretty obvious that Obama and the EPA are going too far and exceeding their authority.

 

Everybody wants clean water, but the federal government and the Progressive fascists should not expect nor believe that they have the authority to regulate every drop of water that falls on America; and yet, Obama has positioned the fascists within the EPA to do this very thing, exerting raw, oppressive control over private lands, through his executive order which clearly transgresses legal boundaries set for the EPA by the courts and Congress. Despite his claim of "historic commitments to clean water," his new "rule" deals more with regulating land use than protecting America's valuable water resources, and it is a serious threat to economic growth, property rights and states' sovereignty. And as such, America demands an end to this overreach of power and the dismantling and eradication of the Waters of the United States "Rule."

As an apologist for Islam the commenter aymedia (Ayad Amin) spins a refutation to the post “First Amendment Assaulted by Sharia in Garland TX”. Although my post was on May 4, 2015 aymedia’s comment was made on May 27, 2015.

 

Aymedia’s About Page on WordPress indicates his (perhaps her – not sure of language gender) focus is primarily on graphics design:

 

AYMEDIA; Think different and make a change.

 

YOUR BRAND in our vocabulary is not only about the visualization of your company’s values but rather a reflection of our unbound spirit and the search for perfection.

 

Ayad Amin, Graphic Designer

 

Ayad Amin’s defense of Islam indicates he is more than a graphics design entrepreneur but is also a devout Muslim although self-defined as a Moderate. I have to ask Ayad if his Islamic devotion considers the Quran to be the very words of Allah spoken from the lips of Mohammed to the ears of his followers.

 

Interspersed through Ayad Amin remarkably peaceful and even-toned comment are my thoughts in bold print.

Ayad Amin Comment

May 27, 2015 at 4:10 AM

 

I was fascinated by your analogy of Islam and its origins and future revival. I consider myself as a middle class well educated moderate Muslim. I find many of your conservative intakes on Islam and the Koran to be legitimate.

 

From my own cultural experience within the Islamic society, I found that there is a deep struggle within Muslims derived from the notion of competitiveness between the major religions of the book, Christianity and Judaism. Hence being the perfect believer of God or Allah is the ultimate goal.


Muslims inherently consider Islam as the truthful and legitimate continuity to its predecessors, Christianity and Judaism. Islam considers the 3 religions as one, but conveyed through multiple Apostles. Islam came to being due to the notion that both previous religions have failed in certain points and Islam shall restore the right path.

 

Blog Editor Thoughts: Muhammad al-Bukhari is the person as the author of the most reliable Hadith. Bukhari’s Hadith is considered by Muslims as second only to the Quran in authority. Al-Bukhari records this tradition about the Torah (Old Testament) of the Jews and the New Testament of Christians:

 

Volume 9, Book 92, Number 461:

 

Narrated Ubaidullah:

 

Ibn 'Abbas said, "Why do you ask the people of the scripture about anything while your Book (Quran) which has been revealed to Allah's Apostle is newer and the latest? You read it pure, undistorted and unchanged, and Allah has told you that the people of the scripture (Jews and Christians) changed their scripture and distorted it, and wrote the scripture with their own hands and said, 'It is from Allah,' to sell it for a little gain. Does not the knowledge which has come to you prevent you from asking them about anything? No, by Allah, we have never seen any man from them asking you regarding what has been revealed to you!" (Emphasis Mine - Translation of Sahih Bukhari, Book 92: Center for Muslim-Jewish Engagement – USC)

 

The Quran is consider the words of the Muslim deity Allah spoken to Mohammed and eventually put on paper under a couple of Caliphs after some dispute about which Caliph’s Quran version was the best. Quran 4: 157-158 in three translations says this about Jesus Christ the Redeemer of humanity by His Blood:

 

4: 157

 

Sahih International

And [for] their saying, "Indeed, we have killed the Messiah, Jesus, the son of Mary, the messenger of Allah." And they did not kill him, nor did they crucify him; but [another] was made to resemble him to them. And indeed, those who differ over it are in doubt about it. They have no knowledge of it except the following of assumption. And they did not kill him, for certain.

 

Muhsin Khan

And because of their saying (in boast), "We killed Messiah 'Iesa (Jesus), son of Maryam (Mary), the Messenger of Allah," - but they killed him not, nor crucified him, but the resemblance of 'Iesa (Jesus) was put over another man (and they killed that man), and those who differ therein are full of doubts. They have no (certain) knowledge, they follow nothing but conjecture. For surely; they killed him not [i.e. 'Iesa (Jesus), son of Maryam (Mary)]:

 

Pickthall

And because of their saying: We slew the Messiah, Jesus son of Mary, Allah's messenger - they slew him not nor crucified him, but it appeared so unto them; and lo! those who disagree concerning it are in doubt thereof; they have no knowledge thereof save pursuit of a conjecture; they slew him not for certain.

 

4: 158

 

Sahih International

Rather, Allah raised him to Himself. And ever is Allah Exalted in Might and Wise.

 

Muhsin Khan

But Allah raised him ['Iesa (Jesus)] up (with his body and soul) unto Himself (and he is in the heavens). And Allah is Ever All-Powerful, All-Wise.

But Allah took him up unto Himself. Allah was ever Mighty, Wise.

 

So Mo told his followers that Jesus is not the Son of God but only the son of Mary, that Jesus never was Crucified to death, BUT that the Muslim deity took Jesus to heaven presumably before death. Ergo, when we Christians tell people (including Muslims) that Jesus was Crucified to death, placed in a tomb a dead man, but raised to life free from returning all the Divinity the Second Person of the Godhead gave up to be incarnated into Mary’s womb to be the perfect man to Redeem humankind from the fallen nature twisted in the first perfect man (Adam) whose human nature was twisted in rebellion to God Almighty. With no Blood there is no Redemption.

 

Here is the Good News according to the TRUE Word of God:

 

Christ’s Birth Announced to Mary – Luke 1

 

26 Now in the sixth month the angel Gabriel was sent by God to a city of Galilee named Nazareth, 27 to a virgin betrothed to a man whose name was Joseph, of the house of David. The virgin’s name was Mary. 28 And having come in, the angel said to her, “Rejoice, highly favored one, the Lord is with you; blessed are you among women!”[a]

29 But when she saw him,[b] she was troubled at his saying, and considered what manner of greeting this was. 30 Then the angel said to her, “Do not be afraid, Mary, for you have found favor with God. 31 And behold, you will conceive in your womb and bring forth a Son, and shall call His name Jesus.32 He will be great, and will be called the Son of the Highest; and the Lord God will give Him the throne of His father David. 33 And He will reign over the house of Jacob forever, and of His kingdom there will be no end.”

34 Then Mary said to the angel, “How can this be, since I do not know a man?”

35 And the angel answered and said to her, “The Holy Spirit will come upon you, and the power of the Highest will overshadow you; therefore, also, that Holy One who is to be born will be called the Son of God.

 

Luke 23

 

32 There were also two others, criminals, led with Him to be put to death. 33 And when they had come to the place called Calvary, there they crucified Him, and the criminals, one on the right hand and the other on the left. 34 Then Jesus said, “Father, forgive them, for they do not know what they do.”[a]

 

And they divided His garments and cast lots.

 

44 Now it was[a] about the sixth hour, and there was darkness over all the earth until the ninth hour. 45 Then the sun was darkened,[b] and the veil of the temple was torn in two. 46 And when Jesus had cried out with a loud voice, He said, “Father, ‘into Your hands I commit My spirit.’”[c] Having said this, He breathed His last.

 

52 This man went to Pilate and asked for the body of Jesus. 53 Then he took it down, wrapped it in linen, and laid it in a tomb that was hewn out of the rock, where no one had ever lain before.

 

Luke 24

 

He Is Risen

 

24 Now on the first day of the week, very early in the morning, they, and certain other women with them,[a] came to the tomb bringing the spices which they had prepared. But they found the stone rolled away from the tomb.Then they went in and did not find the body of the Lord Jesus. And it happened, as they were greatly[b] perplexed about this, that behold, two men stood by them in shining garments. Then, as they were afraid and bowed their faces to the earth, they said to them, “Why do you seek the living among the dead? He is not here, but is risen! Remember how He spoke to you when He was still in Galilee, saying, ‘The Son of Man must be delivered into the hands of sinful men, and be crucified, and the third day rise again.’”

 

The Road to Emmaus

 

13 Now behold, two of them were traveling that same day to a village called Emmaus, which was seven miles[a] from Jerusalem. 14 And they talked together of all these things which had happened. 15 So it was, while they conversed and reasoned, that Jesus Himself drew near and went with them. 16 But their eyes were restrained, so that they did not know Him.

 

20 and how the chief priests and our rulers delivered Him to be condemned to death, and crucified Him. 21 But we were hoping that it was He who was going to redeem Israel. Indeed, besides all this, today is the third day since these things happened. 22 Yes, and certain women of our company, who arrived at the tomb early, astonished us. 23 When they did not find His body, they came saying that they had also seen a vision of angels who said He was alive. 24 And certain of those who were with us went to the tomb and found it just as the women had said; but Him they did not see.”

25 Then He said to them, “O foolish ones, and slow of heart to believe in all that the prophets have spoken! 26 Ought not the Christ to have suffered these things and to enter into His glory?” 27 And beginning at Moses and all the Prophets, He expounded to them in all the Scriptures the things concerning Himself.

 

30 Now it came to pass, as He sat at the table with them, that He took bread, blessed and broke it, and gave it to them. 31 Then their eyes were opened and they knew Him; and He vanished from their sight.

 

33 So they rose up that very hour and returned to Jerusalem, and found the eleven and those who were with them gathered together,

 

Jesus Appears to His Disciples

 

36 Now as they said these things, Jesus Himself stood in the midst of them, and said to them, “Peace to you.”

 

46 Then He said to them, “Thus it is written, and thus it was necessary for the Christ to suffer and to rise[a] from the dead the third day, 47 and that repentance and remission of sins should be preached in His name to all nations, beginning at Jerusalem. 48 And you are witnesses of these things. (Luke 1: 26-35; 23: 32-34, 44-46, 52-53; 24: 1-7, 13-16, 20-27, 30-31, 33, 36, 46-48 NKJV)

 

The only person killed here in this Good News is Jesus Christ the Son of God in Divinity and the son of Mary in humanity. BUT death had NO hold on a wrongfully killed perfect man and Jesus defeated Satan then took the keys of hell and of death and the power of the Father Resurrected Jesus bodily yet in a Glorified body. With the Blood shed on Calvary on the Cross, Jesus Christ Redeems all who Believe on the Risen Christ.

 

But to each one of us grace was given according to the measure of Christ’s gift. Therefore He says:

 

“When He ascended on high,
He led captivity captive,
And gave gifts to men.”[
a]

 

(Now this, “He ascended”—what does it mean but that He also first[b]descended into the lower parts of the earth? 10 He who descended is also the One who ascended far above all the heavens, that He might fill all things.) (Ephesians 4: 7-10 NKJV)

 

13 He has delivered us from the power of darkness and conveyed us into the kingdom of the Son of His love, 14 in whom we have redemption through His blood,[a] the forgiveness of sins.

15 He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation. 16 For by Him all things were created that are in heaven and that are on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or principalities or powers. All things were created through Him and for Him. 17 And He is before all things, and in Him all things consist. 18 And He is the head of the body, the church, who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead, that in all things He may have the preeminence.

 

19 For it pleased the Father that in Him all the fullness should dwell, 20 and by Him to reconcile all things to Himself, by Him, whether things on earth or things in heaven, having made peace through the blood of His cross.

 

21 And you, who once were alienated and enemies in your mind by wicked works, yet now He has reconciled (Colossians 1: 13-21 NKJV)

 

Let this mind be in you which was also in Christ Jesus, who, being in the form of God, did not consider it robbery to be equal with God, but made Himself of no reputation, taking the form of a bondservant, and coming in the likeness of men. And being found in appearance as a man, He humbled Himself and became obedient to the point of death, even the death of the cross. Therefore God also has highly exalted Him and given Him the name which is above every name, 10 that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of those in heaven, and of those on earth, and of those under the earth,11 and that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father. (Philippians 2:5-11 NKJV)

 

45 And so it is written, “The first man Adam became a living being.”[a] The last Adam became a life-giving spirit.

46 However, the spiritual is not first, but the natural, and afterward the spiritual.47 The first man was of the earth, made of dust; the second Man is the Lord[b]from heaven. 48 As was the man of dust, so also are those who are made of dust; and as is the heavenly Man, so also are those who are heavenly. 49 And as we have borne the image of the man of dust, we shall also bear[c] the image of the heavenly Man. (1 Corinthians 15: 45-49 NKJV)

 

17 And when I saw Him, I fell at His feet as dead. But He laid His right hand on me, saying to me,[a] “Do not be afraid; I am the First and the Last. 18 I am He who lives, and was dead, and behold, I am alive forevermore. Amen. And I have the keys of Hades and of Death. (Revelation 1: 17-18 NKJV)

 

The greatest controversy is yet to come. Although Islam considers prior religions as rivals, hence they are the ONLY source of legitimacy to this new religion and so without them, Islam would have never saw the light.

 

Blog Editor: Ayad I understand you are trying to sell me on the Islam is peace concept in a civil manner. The thing is I don’t buy it. The Holy Scriptures of the Bible were written long before Mo was born. It is no controversy that God Himself through the Holy Spirit inspired men to prophesy the will of God which became recorded as Scriptures over thousands of years. Mohammed heard recite from an Angel - allegedly Gabriel – only in the span of Mohammed’s adult life. Granted those Mecca messages peaceful and tolerant; however the recitations Mohammed received from his Medina days onward followed by a life aggression, butchery, booty, sex-slaves and an evolved hatred of Jews and Christians are the works of an insane despot with military cult powers. Islam was born in the darkness and the only light it had in Mecca was wholly extinguished in the darkness of Medina thus illustrating an actual corrupt derivation.

 

12 But what I do, I will also continue to do, that I may cut off the opportunity from those who desire an opportunity to be regarded just as we are in the things of which they boast. 13 For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into apostles of Christ. 14 And no wonder! For Satan himself transforms himself into an angel of light. 15 Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also transform themselves into ministers of righteousness, whose end will be according to their works. (2 Corinthians 11:12-15 NKJV)

 

23 “Then if anyone says to you, ‘Look, here is the Christ!’ or ‘There!’ do not believe it. 24 For false christs and false prophets will rise and show great signs and wonders to deceive, if possible, even the elect. 25 See, I have told you beforehand.

 

26 “Therefore if they say to you, ‘Look, He is in the desert!’ do not go out; or ‘Look, He is in the inner rooms!’ do not believe it. 27 For as the lightning comes from the east and flashes to the west, so also will the coming of the Son of Man be. (Matthew 24:23-27 NKJV)

 

18 Little children, it is the last hour; and as you have heard that the[a] Antichrist is coming, even now many antichrists have come, by which we know that it is the last hour. 19 They went out from us, but they were not of us; for if they had been of us, they would have continued with us; but they went out that they might be made manifest, that none of them were of us.

 

22 Who is a liar but he who denies that Jesus is the Christ? He is antichrist who denies the Father and the Son. 23 Whoever denies the Son does not have the Father either; he who acknowledges the Son has the Father also. (1 John 2: 18-19, 22-23 NKJV)

 

It is clear as you mentioned in “The 6 Major beliefs of Islam, according to the Quran and Muslim tradition: Belief in the revealed books” which are the “Bible” and “Torah”. So for a Muslim, you are obligated to believe in these two books in order to be a true Muslim. If you go back to the beginnings of Islam. One will find great compassionate and brotherly references to the “people of the book”. Especially during the years of the prophet Mohammed and the 4 Rashidoon Khalifas.

 

Blog Editor: You see Ayad that is simply not true. Muslims may believe the Torah and the Bible are revealed, but the Quran commands Muslims to not trust those two revealed books because the Jews and Christians have corrupted them. The existence of a corrupted Bible is not true. The Bible warns us about false prophets who come around discounting and twisting God’s Word and promoting words that either add or say something different.

 

The Koraan clearly defines Jesus, Mary (divine virgin though not a prophet) and Moses as divine Apostles. I have never encountered a single Muslim in my life who would dare to insult those specific prophets. Islam specifically prohibits insulting any nabi or rasool of the Jewish or Christian faiths. To this day, it is a common cultural and religious practice by Muslims to visit the tombs of all Christian and Jewish prophets or Apostles in countries like Iraq, Syria, Lebanon, Iran, Egypt, Jordan and Israel.

 

Whenever a Muslim denies that Christ is the Son of God that died on the Cross out of love to Redeem a humanity separated from God through Adam’s selfish choices that favored Satan – That Muslim has insulted Christians.

 

Whenever a Muslim denies Abraham’s son through Sarah – Isaac - is the son of Promise not Ishmael the son of Abraham through the slave Egyptian girl Hagar – that Muslim has insulted Jews.

 

21 And the Lord visited Sarah as He had said, and the Lord did for Sarah as He had spoken. For Sarah conceived and bore Abraham a son in his old age, at the set time of which God had spoken to him. And Abraham called the name of his son who was born to him—whom Sarah bore to him—Isaac.

 

And Sarah saw the son of Hagar the Egyptian, whom she had borne to Abraham, scoffing. 10 Therefore she said to Abraham, “Cast out this bondwoman and her son; for the son of this bondwoman shall not be heir with my son, namely with Isaac.” 11 And the matter was very displeasing in Abraham’s sight because of his son.

 

12 But God said to Abraham, “Do not let it be displeasing in your sight because of the lad or because of your bondwoman. Whatever Sarah has said to you, listen to her voice; for in Isaac your seed shall be called. 13 Yet I will also make a nation of the son of the bondwoman, because he is your seed.”

 

14 So Abraham rose early in the morning, and took bread and a skin of water; and putting it on her shoulder, he gave it and the boy to Hagar, and sent her away. Then she departed and wandered in the Wilderness of Beersheba.

 

22 Now it came to pass after these things that God tested Abraham, and said to him, “Abraham!”

 

And he said, “Here I am.”

 

Then He said, “Take now your son, your only son Isaac, whom you love, and go to the land of Moriah, and offer him there as a burnt offering on one of the mountains of which I shall tell you.”

 

So Abraham rose early in the morning and saddled his donkey, and took two of his young men with him, and Isaac his son; and he split the wood for the burnt offering, and arose and went to the place of which God had told him.

 

So Abraham took the wood of the burnt offering and laid it on Isaac his son; and he took the fire in his hand, and a knife, and the two of them went together. But Isaac spoke to Abraham his father and said, “My father!”

 

And he said, “Here I am, my son.”

 

Then he said, “Look, the fire and the wood, but where is the lamb for a burnt offering?”

 

And Abraham said, “My son, God will provide for Himself the lamb for a burnt offering.” So the two of them went together.

 

Then they came to the place of which God had told him. And Abraham built an altar there and placed the wood in order; and he bound Isaac his son and laid him on the altar, upon the wood. 10 And Abraham stretched out his hand and took the knife to slay his son.

 

11 But the Angel of the Lord called to him from heaven and said, “Abraham, Abraham!”

 

So he said, “Here I am.”

 

12 And He said, “Do not lay your hand on the lad, or do anything to him; for now I know that you fear God, since you have not withheld your son, your only son, from Me.”

 

15 Then the Angel of the Lord called to Abraham a second time out of heaven,16 and said: “By Myself I have sworn, says the Lord, because you have done this thing, and have not withheld your son, your only son— 17 blessing I will bless you, and multiplying I will multiply your descendants as the stars of the heaven and as the sand which is on the seashore; and your descendants shall possess the gate of their enemies. 18 In your seed all the nations of the earth shall be blessed, because you have obeyed My voice.” (Emphasis is Mine - Genesis 21: 1-3, 9-14; 22: 1-3, 6-12, 15-18 NKJV)

 

CLEARLY God Almighty is referring to Abraham’s seed through Isaac as indicated by the clause that reads “because you have obeyed my voice.”

 

Prophet Mohammed’s wife Khadija, was a Nestorian [Blog Editor: Christians that believed that Jesus was of two separate persons; viz. “the man Jesus and the divine Son of God, rather than as a unified person.” Most Christians believe Jesus is One unified person as fully God and fully man]. The first writer of Koraan, Waraqa-ibn-Nawfal, his brother in law, was a Nestorian. Omar-bin-Khatab, the second Khalifa after P[rophet] Mohammed, when visiting Jerusalem after conquering the Holy Land, said “I will not pray inside your church, Only because when I die, people may convert it into a mosque”.

 

The major divergence in the path of Islam only happened after the end of the Rashidoon Khalifas [or Rashidun Caliphate or the first four Rightly Guided Caliphs]. Everything changed in the sense of moderate Islam. The long struggle for power, conquests and wealth of the new lands, had scarred Islamic practice entirely. The long political struggle with the Christian Byzantine Empire was a terminal factor for the Christian faith inside the Muslim lands. And this struggle continued by the not-so-famous Ottoman Empire with its ambitions towards Europe. And this particular ugly Image of Islam which was portrayed in Europe for centuries to follow to this day.

 

Although I am proud to be a Muslim. Still, I truly believe, and backed by historic evidences, that without the major role of Christianity and Judaism and their scholars and contributions to civil society of Islam, Islam was never to be an empire. If Islam was to stay within the boundaries of the Arabian Desert and had not reached the outposts of the Christian civilization in North Africa, Syria, the Holy land, Mesopotamia and Persia, it would not have continued to this day.

 

My conclusion is that the tolerance of true Islam to the “people of the book” was behind its survival and this is the irony.

 

Blog Editor: The “true Islam to the ‘people of the book’” is represented by the actions that every devout Muslim believes is the so-called Prophet Mohammed. How tolerant was Mohammed after fleeing to Medina evolved into domination and conquest of the Arabia Peninsula?

 

Muhammad’s Actions

 

Now, from the Muslim perspective using their own writings, let us examine in more detail some specific actions that Muhammad ordered. There are more incidents we could reference (see Appendix B), but for the sake of time and space we have to limit the amount of detailed information. This additional material is presented to facilitate honest evaluation and judgment of Muhammad himself, because it is only by his actions that he can and should be judged.

 

The following 14 events and incidents (occurring in the last years of Muhammad’s life) will be examined:

 

1) The killing of Abu Afak.

 

2) The killing of Asma Marwan.

 

3) Attack upon the Banu Qaynuqa Jews.

 

4) The killing of Kab Ashraf.

 

5) The killing of Abu Rafi.

 

6) The killing of Ibn Sunayna.

 

7) Attack against the Banu Nadir Jews.

 

8) The killing of the Shepherd.

 

9) Massacre of the Qurayza Jews.

 

10) The torture killing of Kinana.

 

11) The killing of a slave Wife and Mother.

 

12) The slaying of an old woman from Fazara.

 

13) The killing of Abdullah Khatal and his Daughter.

 

14) The attack upon Tabuk.

 

The details of 1-14 can be read at the WikiIslam article (Islam Undressed: Muhammad’s Actions, Speaking Louder than Words; By Vernon Richards; WikiIslam; last modified 12/21/12 09:22 by Sahab.)

More Thoughts on SCOTUS and Same-Sex Marriage

John R. Houk

© May 30, 2015

 

I belong to a secret Facebook group pertaining the First Amendment. A comment was left on this group pertaining a SlantRight 2.0 post entitled “Arise Christians against SCOTUS Violations”. Since the group is listed as “secret” I am hesitant to reveal the exact Facebook name or the name of the commenter. My sense is that those who post there may not wish to be harassed for their opinions. Thus I will identify the commenter as JP for anonymity reasons.

 

Just as a brief synopsis of “Arise Christians against SCOTUS Violations” that post was about then future oral arguments pertaining to homosexual same-sex marriage being a States’ Rights issue rather than a Federal Government issue. If the supporters of Family and Biblical Values are to win validation of their arguments before SCOTUS then Leftists and homosexual activists will be prohibited from making same-sex marriage a Federally mandated national law and would place that decision in the hands of each individual State of America’s Union. This would reinstate State Laws that made it a matter of the rule of law that marriage would be defined as between man and a woman rather than Adam and Steve or Adriana and Eve.

 

With that in mind here is JP’s comment edited with spellcheck because comments made on the fly are often grammatically flawed (and even though I also I am guilty of on the fly grammatically flawed comments it is a pet peeve of mine):

 

I don't understand why you reference the Old Testament for Christian Canon. Romans 10:4 – “For Christ is the end of the law for righteousness to every one that believeth." KJV (Comment by JP)

 

The common mistake people make is that the Scriptures preached on by Early Christians and Jesus Himself were based on the Old Testament. And another comment mistake by Jim within Romans 10:4 is the word “end”. The Koine Greek word used in the days of the Apostle Paul was “telos”. That word has a more versatile meaning than just “end”. The explanation I found on the Denominational website from the United Church of God – an International Association:

 

In Romans 10:4, Paul's words are translated: “For Christ is the end of the law for righteousness to everyone who believes.” Regrettably, most translators render the Greek word telos simply as “end” instead of giving Paul's intended meaning of that word in this context. Reasoning incorrectly that faith makes the law void, they have adopted an illogical assumption that Paul plainly rejected in Romans 3:31. This passage reads: “Do we then make void the law through faith? Certainly not! On the contrary, we establish the law.”

 

To discover the proper translation of a word that can be used in more than one way, its context has to be understood correctly before any effort is made to determine the right nuance of meaning that the author intended. Here is a simple example. One might ask a college student, “To what end are you attending college?” The word “end” in that context would refer to the “objective” or “goal” the student has in mind. Receiving a degree would be only the “end result” of his college years of learning, not the end to his ability or desire to learn.

 

The Greek word telos, translated “end” in Romans 10:4, can convey variations in meaning, including “'the aim or purpose' of a thing” (Vine's Complete Expository Dictionary of Old and New Testament Words, 1985, “End, Ending”). This is very clear in the New King James Version's rendering of 1 Timothy 1:5, where telos is properly translated as purpose in the clause “the purpose of the commandment is love.” In this same verse the NRSV translates telos as “aim” and the NIV renders it as “goal.”

 

Paul uses telos in Romans 10:4 to convey that the objective or goal of the law—the “aim or purpose” of it—is to point us to the mind and character of Jesus Christ (Galatians 4:19; Philippians 2:5).

 

Jesus Christ, the living Word of God, is a perfect replica of what God's law teaches. Pointing us to His character and work is the aim” of the law. Rendering of telos as “end” in Romans 10:4 distorts Paul's intended meaning—something Peter forcefully warns us not to do (2 Peter 3:15-16).

 

[What Did Paul Mean by 'Christ Is the End of the Law'? From UCG.org; 2/2/11]

 

The point is “the end” does not convey termination but rather the goal as in completeness. Christ completes the Law of the Old Testament by His Blood shed in death convicted under false accusations and human greed and arose from death three days later fulfilling the reasons for the existence of the Law. This does not make the commands of the irrelevant but encompassed in Blood bought Redemption which eliminates the penalties for breaking the Law.

 

In full disclosure about the secret Facebook group, at the time I posted these thoughts on this First Amendment group I had forgotten the secret group’s purpose was a bit more specific than all the aspects of the First Amendment. When I shared these Christian concepts to the secret Facebook group the main focus of this group was Islam in relation to the First Amendment. I posted “Arise Christians against SCOTUS Violations” straying from the groups designed purpose. I chose the First Amendment issue of Free Speech and the Religious Freedom to my opinion allowing Christian Americans to practice their Biblical faith which finds the homosexual lifestyle abhorrent before the sight of God Almighty. Thus on a State to State basis a plurality of Americans could vote individually as a Tenth Amendment Right on the definition of Marriage since the subject is not specifically addressed by the U.S. Constitution.

 

Tenth Amendment

 

The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the states, are reserved to the states respectively, or to the people.

 

As I shared the secret group I posted on focused on Islam described in the right hand column as:

 

DESCRIPTION

For the creation & promotion of an amendment of the First Amendment which will permit proscribing Islam by law. 

First Rough: 

Any institution which recruits or retains members by force, seeks to supplant this constitution with its canon law, promotes offensive warfare or was created for the personal emolument of its founder is not protected under the free exercise clause of the first amendment and may be proscribed by law. 

 

There is very little chance of congressional passage and state ratification, but if properly publicized, the proposal will cause Muslims to s**t bricks, exposing themselves and their cult to full scrutiny.

 

On a personal level I have no problems with Muslims practicing a peaceful Islam that excises the portions of the Quran regarded as the very words of their Allah deity that commands violent Jihad in the present time forcing non-Muslims to submit to Islam by conversion. OR if choosing not to convert then submitting to the superiority of Islam over one’s own religious beliefs on penalty of offending Islam, the Allah deity or Mohammed resulting in a death sentence, violent punishment or imprisonment. Also Muslims should endeavor to transform (as opposed to the current purist Islamic reform flowing globally) the Hadith and Sira that supports the violent portions of the Quran advocating present time death, physical punishment or imprisonment for rejecting and thus offending Islam. Also Christians and Americans in general should realize that the Quran recorded in Mecca prior to Mohammed fleeing to Medina are peaceful and tolerant of non-Muslim faiths especially calling for an appreciation for Jews and Christians, BUT from Medina onward the Quran recorded is violently hostile toward non-Muslims which singles out forced submission of Jews and Christians who don’t convert with an OR ELSE caveat in the Medina suras. AND Christians and Americans should be aware that the Quran IS NOT recorded in chronological order – the Mecca and Medina suras are interspersed according to size rather than time frame.

 

In moving along back to the homosexual lifestyle pertaining to same-sex marriage vs. Traditional Marriage let it be known I probably should not have shared that particular post to the secret Facebook group focused on Islam in relation to the First Amendment; ergo I must say to my fellow members of the group I say, “Oops”.

 

This is an apology to the secret group, but I stand with God Almighty to assert a homosexual lifestyle is an abomination to His Presence. This is when I typically a homosexual activist claim something idiotic like, “God made me Gay and hence I was born Gay.” I find the homosexual activist assertion idiotic not based on science, but rather based on the God inspired Word in the Holy Bible.

 

Homosexuality condemned in both the Old and New Testaments. Thank God the Father emptied His Divine characteristics to be born as a man from a woman in Jesus Christ the Son of God. In Christ the penalty of the Law that is in the Old Testament has been rendered complete in Jesus. The penalty is not terminated but postponed in this life. The Last Judgment determines each person’s final eternity based on the heart-faith in following the Way of the Risen Savior thus determining if their name is in the Book of Life or not. Since Christ rose from the dead the final penalty or blessing occurs in that Last Judgment. That which is important that God finds homosexuality an abomination in the old covenant and the new covenant sealed in Christ’s Blood:

 

Leviticus

 

22 You shall not lie with a male as with a woman. It is an abomination.

 

13 If a man lies with a male as he lies with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination. They shall surely be put to death. Their blood shall be upon them.

 

Romans

 

18 For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who suppress the truth in unrighteousness, 19 because what may be known of God is manifest in them, for God has shown it to them.

 

24 Therefore God also gave them up to uncleanness, in the lusts of their hearts, to dishonor their bodies among themselves, 25 who exchanged the truth of God for the lie, and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever. Amen.

 

26 For this reason God gave them up to vile passions. For even their women exchanged the natural use for what is against nature. 27 Likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust for one another, men with men committing what is shameful, and receiving in themselves the penalty of their error which was due. (Leviticus 18: 22; 20: 13; Romans 1: 18-19 NKJV)

 

If SCOTUS rules in favor of homosexual activism making same-sex marriage a part of the rule of law without the path set forth in the U.S. Constitution, then SCOTUS is unconstitutionally enacting a law that should either be left to the described Amendment process through the vehicle of Congress and/or the States.

 

Article V

 

The Congress, whenever two thirds of both houses shall deem it necessary, shall propose amendments to this Constitution, or, on the application of the legislatures of two thirds of the several states, shall call a convention for proposing amendments, which, in either case, shall be valid to all intents and purposes, as part of this Constitution, when ratified by the legislatures of three fourths of the several states, or by conventions in three fourths thereof, as the one or the other mode of ratification may be proposed by the Congress; provided that no amendment which may be made prior to the year one thousand eight hundred and eight shall in any manner affect the first and fourth clauses in the ninth section of the first article; and that no state, without its consent, shall be deprived of its equal suffrage in the Senate.

 

TAKE NOTE that the Supreme Court of the United States and the Executive Branch are not a part of Article V of the U.S. Constitution.

 

The only way that SCOTUS can act constitutionally to assuage the lot of homosexuals is to rule that it is more than a lifestyle but is a genetic occurrence. Even though you will homosexuals claim biological science is in their favor the actual science is hardly concrete in people being genetically born a homosexual. And ironically committed homosexuals are not even united on the OPINION of genetics.

 

If clear cut genetics is ever proven then science might be created by the heterosexuals that are actually needed to make children to engineer genes or the workings of inner anatomical organs responsible for sexual preference to eradicate the homosexual gene. Such genetic engineering would not fall under the category of murder but on the medical procedures that Leftists so often demand for women called “Choice”.

 

Homosexual activists point to the Fourteenth Amendment as the basis for claiming specific rights for homosexuals just as any other citizen of the United States. I’m not a lawyer but it seems if homosexuality is a choice rather than a genetic occurrence then how can the Fourteenth Amendment be applied to assign specific rights as equal to genetically born individuals?

 

People are not born a Democrat or Republican. People are not a Communist or a Capitalist.

 

People born into a human race is mentioned into the Constitution. Ironically people are not into a specific genetic religion, but they choose a religion or atheism or I could care less. BUT the Constitution specifically gives genetically born human beings the Constitutional Freedom to choose a religion or no religion.

 

NO WHERE in the Constitution are people who choose to be a homosexual have named specific rights for choosing that as a lifestyle to be respected by race, creed, religion or lack of religion.

 

The Constitution does provide for independent ideology in the First Amendment with Free Speech. The Constitution does not provide marriage between a same religion, a different religion, a religious person and an atheist, only Democrats can marry, only Republicans can and I think you get the idea. People marry as people.

 

If a majority of people in a given State view male/female marriage as natural law then marriage can so be entered. Frankly if homosexuals choose to enter into some kind of contractual mutual obligations and expectations I don’t see anything unconstitutional with that choice. But defining same-sex marriage a natural part of nature is ungodly in the sight of God. How do I know that? HE SAID SO IN THE HOLY BIBLE.

 

America is a secular nation founded under the platform of Christian Religious Liberty. Forcing a Christian to accept something as lawful is unconscionable and according to the First Amendment infringes on the right of a Christian to practice their faith which is unconstitutional.

 

The Fourteenth Amendment was enacted to after the Civil War to ensure liberated African-American slaves had the same protections and rights as pre-Civil War free non-slaves. In other words the Fourteenth Amendment dealt with civil protections and civil rights based on the genetics of human beings not on the choices of aberrant lifestyles.

 

Here are insightful words about the Original Intent of the Fourteenth Amendment:

 

The most decisive of these reasons is the fact that when the 14th Amendment was passed in 1868, homosexual behavior was a felony in every state in the union. So if the 14th Amendment was intended to require same-sex marriage, then every state in the union intended to throw the new couple into prison as soon as the marriage was consummated!

 

Some may say, “Who cares what they believed in 1868 about homosexuality? We’ve evolved since then.”

 

That’s addressed by the second reason: laws and words have specific scopes and meanings. They don’t have unlimited flexibility as liberal justices tend to think. Neither the intent nor the text of the Constitution requires the states to redefine marriage. If the people of the United States have “evolved” on the issue, then the Constitution provides them with a very clear and fair way for the document to intelligently “evolve”—they need to convince a supermajority of federal and state legislatures to amend the Constitution. That’s the very reason our Constitution has an amendment process!

 

 

… the 14th Amendment was intended to prevent states from discriminating against newly freed slaves. At that time blacks and women didn’t even have the right to vote, yet no court ever thought it could use the “equal protection” clause to change state voting laws. So why do some district courts think they can use it now to change state marriage laws? Are we to believe that “equal protection” does not guarantee a woman’s right to vote but does guarantee a woman’s right to marry another woman?

 

 

… Every person has the same equal right to marry someone of the opposite sex. That law treats all people equally, but not every behavior they may desire equally. If people with homosexual desires do not have equal rights, then people with desires to marry their relatives or more than one person don’t have equal rights. The “born that way” justification doesn’t work either because that same justification could make any desired arrangement “marriage,” which means the logic behind it is absurd. …

 

 

Does the U.S. Constitution require same-sex marriage? No, the U.S. Constitution requires the Court to leave this issue to the states. If you believe otherwise, then amend the Constitution. READ ENTIRETY (Why the 14th Amendment Can’t Possibly Require Same-Sex Marriage; By Frank Turek; Townhall.com; 3/17/15)

 

Here is the Fourteenth Amendment of which SCOTUS will issue an opinion on same-sex marriage:

 

Passed by Congress June 13, 1866. Ratified July 9, 1868.

 

Section 1. All persons born or naturalized in the United States and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the State wherein they reside. No State shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any State deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.

 

Section 2. Representatives shall be apportioned among the several States according to their respective numbers, counting the whole number of persons in each State, excluding Indians not taxed. But when the right to vote at any election for the choice of electors for President and Vice President of the United States, Representatives in Congress, the Executive and Judicial officers of a State, or the members of the Legislature thereof, is denied to any of the male inhabitants of such State, being twenty-one years of age, and citizens of the United States, or in any way abridged, except for participation in rebellion, or other crime, the basis of representation therein shall be reduced in the proportion which the number of such male citizens shall bear to the whole number of male citizens twenty-one years of age in such State.

 

Section 3. No person shall be a Senator or Representative in Congress, or elector of President and Vice President, or hold any office, civil or military, under the United States, or under any State, who, having previously taken an oath, as a member of Congress, or as an officer of the United States, or as a member of any State legislature, or as an executive or judicial officer of any State, to support the Constitution of the United States, shall have engaged in insurrection or rebellion against the same, or given aid or comfort to the enemies thereof. But Congress may by a vote of two-thirds of each House, remove such disability.

 

Section 4. The validity of the public debt of the United States, authorized by law, including debts incurred for payment of pensions and bounties for services in suppressing insurrection or rebellion, shall not be questioned. But neither the United States nor any State shall assume or pay any debt or obligation incurred in aid of insurrection or rebellion against the United States, or any claim for the loss or emancipation of any slave; but all such debts, obligations and claims shall be held illegal and void.

 

Section 5. The Congress shall have power to enforce, by appropriate legislation, the provisions of this article. (The US Constitution: 14th Amendment; website author - Fred Elbel; 14thAmendment.us; Copyright 2007-2014 - all rights reserved.)

 

Here is some truth to read pertaining the homosexual activist propaganda that a majority of American voters support same-sex marriage:

 

The headlines of most opinion polls and news stories say the same thing: Gay marriage is inevitable, by the people’s choice.

 

In February, a CNN/ORC survey of more than 1,000 people found 63 percent support for same-sex marriage.

 

This “supermajority of Americans” reflects the constant growing and widening support for the nuptials, said Evan Wolfson, president of Freedom to Marry.

 

In recent days, USA Today, The Washington Post and ABC News also have declared an end to the national battle on marriage.

 

“There’s no turning back,” said an April 19 article in USA Today, citing its poll of 1,000 adults taken with Suffolk University. Some 51 percent of those adults said they favored allowing gay couples to marry, with 35 percent opposed and 14 percent undecided.

 

An ABC News/Washington Post poll released Thursday found 61 percent support for same-sex marriage — with 78 percent support in the under-30 age group.

 

A Public Religion Research Institute survey of 40,000 Americans — which also found majority support for same-sex marriage — revealed …

 

 

In contrast, an amicus brief filed at the Supreme Court says it is “simply not true” that large majorities of Americans support a redefinition of marriage.

 

Real opinions are made at voting booths, and in 39 elections, in which nearly 85 million votes were cast in 35 states, more than 51 million people voted to keep marriage as a man-woman union, campaign and polling analyst Frank Schubert and the National Organization for Marriage said in their brief in Obergefell v. Hodges.

 

With a margin of 60.9 percent to 39.1 percent for traditional marriage, that is “an overwhelming landslide in American politics,” they wrote.

 

Although some polls indicate wide support for same-sex marriage, others show majority opposition to it or public support starting to drop, the brief said.


 

Also, many polls showing support for same-sex marriage may be worded to catch a “yes.”

 

“People generally want to be ‘for’ something, rather than ‘against’ something,” the National Organization for Marriage brief said.

 

Another factor, intended or not, is the “priming” of people with questions about legal rights before asking them about the right to marry. Without such priming, the Gallup Poll’s support for same-sex marriage dipped by an average of 6 to 7 points, the brief said.


READ ENTIRETY (Gay marriage defies opinions of American majority, legal brief tells Supreme Court; By Cheryl Wetzstein; Washington Times; 4/23/15)

 

What you should notice in that Washington Times article is that polls controlled by a Left-oriented Mainstream Media supports the agenda to restructure Family Values in America to reflect a decimation of Biblical Morality to be replaced with a Secular Humanism in which a mercurial humanity decides which morals have value and which morals are pointlessly archaic.

 

When a majority of American voters lean to defining American culture to an antichrist motif rendering Christianity irrelevantly archaic that will be the real beginning of the end of Constitutional Liberty America’s Founding Fathers intended for the United States of America.

Shepard’s whole “Survive The End Days” program is based solely on the premise the Whore of Babylon in the Holy Scriptures is the USA.I see this assertion as a stretch in credulity partly because of some blatant theological errors throughout his build up to demonstrate his point.

 

It is my opinion that Shepard takes some facts and plugs them into conclusions like jamming a square peg into a round hole. That can only be the aha moment of revealed understanding if the square peg fits into the round hole.

 

However, if you accept the whore of Babylon = the USA, the square peg lines up a little better to a square hole. So you will have to decide for yourself on what is the whore of Babylon.

 

Shepard makes the assertion that Russia is north of the USA when in reality the world and America consider Russia as part of the East. And technically in proximity Russia is just West of the USA with the small body of water between Alaska and Russian Siberia.

 

Shepard the USA is what is referred to as the power in South to threaten Jerusalem. The reality is, prophetically speaking, a better assertion of a power south of Jerusalem would be the cities that Islam originated in namely Mecca and Medina which is in current day Saudi Arabia.

 

Daniel prophesied from Babylon not Jerusalem.

 

Shepard asserts the shield program is being built in Europe when the fact is President Obama discontinued the European shield program soon after taking Office just after 2008.

 

I have no problem with identifying Barack Hussein Obama as an evil force ruining America. I don’t even have a problem with connecting BHO to an antichrist spirit. I just don't believe he is THE Antichrist that will be revealed in the Tribulation period predestined to afflict humanity before the return of Jesus Christ the Son of God, Savior and Lord.

 

There are many other suspect claims of bona fide research theologically relating to present day current affairs but there simply too many to tackle at this point. But here’s some food for thought. This is how Nathan Shepard describes himself:

 

… My name is Nathan Shepard

 

I have been a fervent Christian ever since I was a child… I have pursued a career in Archeology and theology…

 

And have dedicated my life to studying the ancient Scriptures…

 

After 30 years of painstaking studies the clues hidden in the words of the prophets of our Lord become evident… (Nathan Shepard)

 

Now that sounds like a person with an awesome background in which one should rest assured. But the “DISCLAIMER” gives me pause:

 

DISCLAIMER: The author of this material wishes to keep his identity private, therefore Nathan Shepard is a pen name. (At the bottom of webpage entitled, “Our church and government are engaged in a massive cover up”)

 

Here are four websites that start with the impression of an independent review of the “Survive The End Day” program however you will realize the review is a paid review because it has a recommended link to purchase in somewhere on the page:

The first webpage is actually from the local news affiliate of CBS Tulsa where I reside. Even so it is a paid ad.

 

I love the name of the webpage of the second review on this random list: BS-er. The hyphen is my idea to express a point. The reviews on this website are quite likely to be a load of BS. The website’s “Disclosure” and “Disclaimer” page are clues.

 

I’ll let you vet the last two webpages.

 

The most reliable review I found is here:

 

About Survive the End Days

 

Survive the End Days is a new video presentation and survival guide written and offered by Nathan Shephard [sic], who wants to teach people how to protect themselves in the event the United States is attacked by an EMP.

 

How Does It Work?

 

Nathan Shephard [sic] says that he has pursued a career in Archeology and Theology, and his years of extensive study has given him an insight to understanding the prophecies made in the Bible, and he has created a theory about future prophecies made in the Bible that he feels it is important to warn people about.

 

This theory is that the United States is the nation referred to in the Bible as “Mystery Babylon” or “Babylon” and that current President Barack Obama is the man referred to as “King of the South,” while Russian President Vladimir Putin is the man referred to as “King of the North.”

 

Taking all of these assertions into consideration, it follows that the prophecies regarding the next world war, or World War III, indicate that Russia will attack the United States before the end of Barack Obama’s Presidency, which Nathan Shepard cites as January 1, 2017, and that this attack will be made with “a very special weapon.”

 

Because the Bible describes this weapon as leaving “Babylon silent and in darkness” and their military helpless. Shephard theorizes that this weapon is an EMP bomb, an electromagnetic pulse bomb, which has the ability to kill all sensitive electronic circuits within minutes or even seconds.

 

And once all electricity and technology has been wiped out, modern day Americans will find it almost impossible to function in their daily lives. Which is where the Survive the End Days guide comes in – Nathan Shephard [sic] says he lived with the Amish for more than two years, and knows exactly how to teach you to live without relying on modern day conveniences. 

 

 

Reputation

 

There are not many reviews for this product at this time which are not offered by affiliates or partner websites, however there is a lot of information available online concerning EMP attacks, including articles written by contributors to Forbes Magazine and the Wall Street Journal warning of the dangers, and other articles from National Geographic and the government discussing the myths associate with such an attack.

 

One thing that seems clear if you read articles provided by organizations that are not trying to sell you survival materials is that one assertion made by Nathan Shephard [sic] in his presentation is wrong – the threat of an EMP bomb is real, and as such is something the US Military has been preparing for, for more than 30 years. Most scientists and researchers feel strongly that the US Military would be mostly unaffected by an EMP attack. The real danger is that the civilian electrical grid is essentially defenseless from such an attack.

 

There is a lot of free information available about EMP attacks and what regular civilians can do to protect themselves, as well as a lot of extremist information that is generally incorrect and being essentially used to scare people into buying products. Survive the End Days seems as though it falls into the second category.

 

Customers who are still interested in purchasing this product are welcome to do as they please, but you are also encouraged to look at other sources of research to develop a fully formed opinion.

 

Competitors and Alternatives?

 

There are many, many other survival guides available on the market, including (Survive the End Days Reviews; reviewopedia.com)

Here is a snapshot quote from Sutliff about Department of Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson:

 

Now, we have to ask if Jeh Johnson is a Muslim practicing taqiyyah (lying to protect the Islamic faith) or if he is simply clueless. The answer is sadly not definitive. But then being in charge of one of the US government’s national security should mean that HE HAS A RESPONSIBILITY to know certain things, such as who are the Muslim Brotherhood in the United States, and that they have written a declared mission to commit Civilization Jihad on North America! – Paul Sutliff
 

That pretty much sums up this exposé on Secretary Jeh Johnson which will include an insightful comparison of the Bill of Rights and the Quran.

Jeh Johnson, DHS Secretary: Is he a fox guarding hens or an ignorant hound?

By Paul Sutliff 

May 26, 2015

Paul Sutliff on Civilization Jihad

 

For too long I have pondered the silence of the alphabet soup that is supposed to be protecting us. Where have the FBI, CIA, DHS, NSA been when they should be arresting even those in power who commit acts of treason? I have long pondered how I, a Special Education Teacher, can see the actions of treason and the men and women paid to protect our Constitution and the American people can not or simply refuse to act!

I have long been a believer that America is the land of equalization. But perhaps I forgot about the dangers of an evil boss. The employer who thinks nothing of lying to discredit an employee, purposefully tarnishing their name for no other reason than to satisfy their lust for power! 

Combine that lust for power with evil intent bent on the destruction of our government and what do you get? Bosses and administrators who are so feared because of the heavy footprint they have left on good men and women as they crushed them into silence or complicity.

Now is the time to look at WHO is in power at the head of the Alphabet soup agencies! Do those who lead personify a lust for power with evil intent? 

Jeh Johnson, the current Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), was appointed by President Obama to a post he had no qualifications for. He had not served in the military protecting America, nor had he spent one day as police officer where he would have learned to protect and serve. What pushed Jeh Johnson into the lime light as a potential DHS leader then? 

Jeh Johnson is one of the lawyers who worked for the terrorists detained at Gitmo. He was President Obama’s inside man working to give the terrorists, who are not American "citizens" the rights of Americans under the Constitution. Debbie Schlussel and the Journal both wrote of their concerns about President Obama’s nonsensical choice to fill this post. What qualified him for Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security in President Obama’s eyes was his work helping terrorists!


 

Jeh was one of the leaders who spoke eloquently about how we meet today's threats in a way that are consistent with our values, including the rule of law. (President Barak Obama, October 18, 2013, The White House)


Considering that President Obama stated in the 2014 State of the Union Address this January that  "…  no challenge — no challenge — poses a greater threat to future generations than climate change… that climate change poses immediate threat for national security.”

 

VIDEO: President Obama: Act on climate

 

Is it that President Obama’s choice for DHS Secretary leaving him uniformed to the immediate threats on our national security regarding Islamic terrorists?

Jeh Johnson was placed at the head of DHS for aiding the enemy! Then it must be asked if it is his personal ambition to continue aiding Islamist terrorists? 

Just two months ago, that answer was given. Jeh Johnson accepted an award from the Muslim Public Affairs Council. MPAC is an entity known to everyone who has studied terrorism, as a front for the Muslim Brotherhood in North America. Taking an award from a Muslim Brotherhood entity when it has issued a threat against Americans in Egypt on their own television network reveals the evil nature of this boss of the Department of Homeland Security.  Some may claim he did not know who MPAC are. But Jeh Johnson is in charge of defending America! How is it even conceivable that an average American like me, could be more informed than the head of the DHS?

What was Jeh Johnson’s original purpose in seeking to give constitutional rights of American citizens to those captured in war? Is this not also act of attempting to destroy the American government by making little of the rights of its citizens by granting them to enemy combatants? Or, was his appointment something more sinister? Looking at his speech to the MPAC audience as his received his reward truly revealed that Jeh Johnson is engaged in Civilization Jihad, for it was here he said, “reading the Quran reminds him of quintessential American values.”

Really? In order for Mr. Johnson to see “quintessential American values” in the Koran, he would have to deny many things in our Constitution. It is important to understand that under Islam there is no separation of Church and State. Islam is the government and under this principle examining the Koran, the Sunna and the Hadith takes on a whole new unAmerican perspective. Don't take my word for it. Read just a few examples of what the Constitution states vs. the Koran and decide for yourself if, the Quran does speak to American values.

 

 

US CONSTITUTION

 

KORAN

FIRST AMENDMENT: “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof ”

 

“Those who reject Islam must be killed. If they turn back (from Islam), take hold of them and kill them wherever you find them." Quran 4:89

 

 

Quran 9:73

 

FIRST AMENDMENT: Congress shall not abridge "the freedom of speech.”

 

Quran 33:57-61

 

Asma bint Marwan [Blog Editor: here is some more detail on Asma] - Asma was a poetess who belonged to a tribe of Medinan pagans, and whose husband was named Yazid b. Zayd. She composed a poem blaming the Medinan pagans for obeying a stranger (Muhammad) and for not taking the initiative to attack him by surprise. When the Allah-inspired prophet heard what she had said, he asked, “Who will rid me of Marwan’s daughter?”

 

A member of her husband’s tribe volunteered and crept into her house that night. She had five children, and the youngest was sleeping at her breast. The assassin gently removed the child, drew his sword, and plunged it into her, killing her in her sleep. The following morning, the assassin defied anyone to take revenge. No one took him up on his challenge, not even her husband. In fact, Islam became powerful among his tribe. Previously, some members who had kept their conversion secret now became Muslims openly, “because they saw the power of Islam,” conjectures biographer Ibn Ishaq (d. 767).

 

SECOND AMENDMENT: "The right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed."

 

Sharia forbids those “who are at war with Muslims” It is a condition that someone buying

 

weapons be of a people who are not at war with

 

Muslims. (Sharia k1.2)

 

FIFTH AMENDMENT: "no person shall be held to answer for a capital or otherwise infamous crime… without due process of law."

 

No Muslim should be killed for killing a Kafir (infidel)” (Hadith Sahih al-Bukhari, Vol. 9, No. 50).

 

SIXTH AMENDMENT: guarantees a "public trial by an impartial jury."

 

Islamic law does not give non-Muslims equal legal standing with Muslims, even prohibiting a non-Muslim from testifying in court against a Muslim.

 

 

A woman’s word under Islam is not equal to that of a man in a court also!

 

Now, we have to ask if Jeh Johnson is a Muslim practicing taqiyyah (lying to protect the Islamic faith) or if he is simply clueless. The answer is sadly not definitive. But then being in charge of one of the US government’s national security should mean that HE HAS A RESPONSIBILITY to know certain things, such as who are the Muslim Brotherhood in the United States, and that they have written a declared mission to commit Civilization Jihad on North America!

Secretary Johnson should have been able to give a kind refusal when offered the award instead of giving the Muslim Brotherhood, through their MPAC award, a sense of legitimacy. But this is not the first time Jeh Johnson has been called out for his relationships with terrorists.

Paul Sutliff was born and raised in Rochester, NY. He is an educator and a writer. He says he is only an awakened Patriot to what is happening around him. Paul first started to look into the Muslim Brotherhood after one of their groups gave the college where he earned his MSED $500,000. It took only a short bit of research to realize that a former Catholic college had opened its doors to an enemy of the United States.

Paul now gives speeches and does radio hoping to awaken America to an enemy that now works in every branch of the US government.

Research on the Islamic State

 

By Aymenn Jawad al-Tamimi

various publications

April 1-May 15, 2015

Middle East Forum

 

Aymenn Jawad al-Tamimi, a research fellow at Middle East Forum's Jihad Intel project, is one of world's leading experts on the Islamic State (IS) group terrorizing Iraq and Syria, also known as ISIS. The overwhelming majority of his writings and translations are too detailed or esoteric for distribution to a general audience, so instead MEF compiles periodic updates providing links and summaries for those who wish to follow the groundbreaking work of this prolific researcher.

Articles and Blog Posts

 

Is ISIS Islamic? (April 3)
Jihadology
Jawad al-Tamimi argues that IS documents and publications show respect for the four traditional schools of Sunni jurisprudence and that many of its actions, however heinous, "can find a place within the vastness of Islamic tradition."

 

Translations

 

Jamaat Ansar al-Islam: Eulogy to Abu Ahmad of Mosul (April 15)

 

Translation and Analysis of a statement from the Sunni jihadist group Jamaat Ansar al-Islam, which was based primarily in Iraq until its disintegration in the wake of last year's IS advance across the north of the country, with elements of its Syria chapter continuing to operate in a limited capacity. The statement eulogizes Abu Ahmad of Mosul, a leader of the group's Iraq branch reportedly killed by IS.

 

Muqawama Suriya Statement: Loss of Jisr al-Shughur (April 26)

 

Translation and analysis of a statement by Muqawama Suriya, a pro-Assad militia led by Turkish-born Alawite Ali Kayali. The statement illustrates "growing war weariness among pro-Assad circles" in the wake of recent losses in Idlib province, notes Jawad al-Tamimi, while its emphasis on "popular" and "national" forces "implicitly acknowledges some of the increasing resentment in regime circles that the war effort is too dependent on foreign irregular forces."

 

Interview with the leader of Harakat al-Nujaba (April 28)

 

Translation and analysis of an interview with Akram al-Ka'abi, the leader of Harakat Hizballah al-Nujaba (The Movement of the Party of God of the Outstanding), or HHN, an Iranian-backed Iraqi Shia militia that emerged in 2013, operating both in Iraq and in Syria via multiple front groups. The interview sheds light on several aspects of HHN, notably its open identification with Iranian Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei and ties with the Lebanese Shia Hezbollah movement.

 

"We have the Swords"- IS nasheed (May 2)

 

Translation of a musical chant (nasheed), produced by IS's Ajnad Media Foundation. One of the "darker" nasheeds, according to Jawad al-Tamimi, with lyrics such as "we sever off heads by the strike of the sword."

About The Middle East Forum

 

With roots going back to 1990, the Middle East Forum has been an independent tax-exempt 501(c) (3) nonprofit organization based in Philadelphia since 1994.

 

Mission

 

The Middle East Forum promotes American interests in the Middle East and protects Western values from Middle Eastern threats.

 

The Forum sees the region — with its profusion of dictatorships, radical ideologies, existential conflicts, border disagreements, corruption, political violence, and weapons of mass destruction — as a major source of problems for the United States. Accordingly, we urge bold measures to protect Americans and their allies.

 

In the Middle East, we focus on ways to defeat radical Islam; work for Palestinian acceptance of Israel; develop strategies to contain Iran; and deal with the great advances of anarchy.

 

At home, the Forum emphasizes the danger of lawful Islamism; protects the freedoms of anti-Islamist authors, activists, and publishers; and works to improve Middle East studies.

 

Methods

 

The Middle East Forum realizes its goals through three main mechanisms:

 

  1. Intellectual: The Forum provides context, insights, and policy recommendations through The East Quarterly, staff writings, public lectures, radio and television appearances, and conference calls (see below for details).

 

  1. Operational: The Forum exerts an active influence through its projects, including Campus Watch, Islamist Watch, Legal Project, Washington Project, Apartheid Monitor, and Shillman/Ginsburg Writing Fellowship Program (see below for details).

 

  1. Philanthropic: The Forum annually distributes US$1.5 million in earmarked donations through its Education Fund, helping researchers, writers, investigators, and activists around the world.

 

 

Activities

 

Campus Speakers Bureau provides knowledgeable speakers capable of relating accurate and balanced information regarding the Middle East and Islam to American university students.

 

Campus Watch exposes the READ THE REST
