  • Officials Announce Plan to Relocate Ahmadiyah Families to a Deserted Island.A district head in West Nusa Tenggara announced plan to relocate 20 Ahmadiyah families to a deserted island, a move many say is both discriminatory and inhumane.“We are trying to protect Ahmadiyah members,” Zaini Arony, district head of West Lombok, said on Monday, as quoted by Antara.Zaini said he had discussed the matter with religious figures and members of society, adding that it had been agreed that Ahmadiyah members would be relocated to an island in Sekotong subdistrict.He claimed the local government feared a repeat of an incident in February 2006 when thousands of mainstream Muslims burned homes belonging to Ahmadiyah members in the district.Many mainstream Muslims do not consider Ahmadis to be Muslims, citing in particular the Ahmadiyya viewpoint on the death and return of Jesus (see Jesus in Islam)The physical coming of Jesus (an old Israelite prophet) would disqualify Muhammad as the final prophet.The Ahmadiyya concept of Jihad as peaceful and the community’s view of the finality of prophethood with particular reference to the interpretation of Qur'an 33:40.

  • HT:EmergingCorruption.Obama’s Healthcare Rules Will Shut Down Catholic Hospitals Nationwide.Some of Obamacare’s most destructive forces are quickly becoming common knowledge. We have, for instance, become painfully aware that Obama’s claim that we all could keep our plans and doctors “if you like them” is an outright falsehood as some people are already losing their coverage. It is also becoming clear that companies will be dropping plans all over the place making a lie of the idea that plans will be cheaper and easier to get once Obamacre comes into force. Another aspect of the destructive nature of this top down-style of “healthcare” is that once government takes over the system Democrats will assume they have the power to force religious-based healthcare providers to perform abortions and this will cause thousands of facilities to close down. This will, of course, make care even harder to get in many cities across the nation as hospital beds are lost in great numbers.In fact, we are already seeing this disastrous situation of closing hospitals playing out in Scranton, Pennsylvania where three Catholic-operated hospitals are likely going to be shut down and/or sold off because of the negative affects Obamacare will have on these facilities.Kevin Cook, the CEO of Mercy Health Partners, the company that operates these three hospitals, told WNEP TV News that Obamacare “absolutely” playing a role in the decision to sell off the facilities.Read the full story here.Click here for comments.

  • HT:BloggerBase.Geert Wilders on Trial: Testimony of Wafa Sultan.I doubt that the judge was comfortable reading that content, but he made an obvious effort to avoid displaying his disgust. His relief is obvious when he finishes reading the testimony. The defendant and his lawyer were obviously struggling to maintain decorum. A few audience members in the gallery were not so successful in maintaining a straight face. A good view of the prosecution side might have been priceless.Read and see the full story here.Click here for comments.

  • HT:Newzeal.Obama File 111 Degrees of Separation - Obama, Socialist Scholars and the East German Spy.Stanley Kurtz's new book "Radical-in-Chief: Barack Obama and the Untold Story of American Socialism", finally proves that Barack Obama attended the Democratic Socialists of America - run Socialist Scholars Conferences in 1983 and 1984.He also reveals how some of the marxists participating in those conferences would influence Obama's career in later years.In this post I look at the 10th annual Socialist Scholars Conference held at the Borough of Manhattan Community College in April 1992.Kurt Stand was a Washington DC based labor activist. Barack Obama was an obscure Chicago "community organizer" and local politician. How did he know of Obama's past? What was the connection?Two men once moved in the same circles. One is an now incarcerated traitor, the other is President of the United States of America.Do they still share the same goals?Read the full story here.Click here for comments.


  • HT:BloggerBase.Iran, Armageddon: Dear Sarah Palin.What is it about Armageddon that people don't understand? Perhaps a lot. Former VP Candidate: Nuclear Iran Could Lead to 'Armageddon' by Maayana Miskin, quotes Sarah Palin,"We have to realize that at the end of the day, a nuclear weapon in that country's hands is not just Israel's problem or America's problem, it is the world's problem. It could lead to an Armageddon. It could lead to that World War III that could decimate so much of this planet."Dear Sarah! 'Armageddon' is in the Bible and has a context. It is at the end of the Bible, so it is possible many may give up reading the book before the end, but, in context Armageddon is not something that a Christian may view as an event that is possible to be avoided. In the text there is no choice in the matter.Dear Sarah Palin America, Britain and allies have pushed from the South, in the Gulf and in Iraq, just as Daniel prophesied in a parallel prophecy of the time of the end. Then it says the king of the North shall come down. Ezekiel says that with him will be Persia. It is too late, America already has begun the move that will lead to world war and the battle at the place with the Hebrew name armageddon. America, began it. America has shown the king of the North the way. Now regarding Iran, who's going to stop the Pope, Europe and Russia talking about Liberty, Equality and Fraternity in relationship to Iran now?Read the full story here.Click here for comments.

  • Policeman possibly linked to Falcon Lake case beheaded.The severed head of a Mexican police commander investigating the fatal shooting of U.S. citizen David Michael Hartley on Falcon Lake was delivered Tuesday to Mexican military in a suitcase, authorities said.The commander, identified as Rolando Flores Villegas, was one of the investigators that family members met during a meeting last week at an international bridge near Roma, said Cynthia Young, the mother of Hartley's widow, Tiffany.Officials said the head was delivered in the vicinity of Miguel Alemán, Mexico, across the border from Roma, Texas.The area is known to be under control of the Zeta drug cartel, which fiercely protects the sparsely populated ranchland lining the border, as well as the Mexican side of the vast Falcon Lake reservoir.Young said the family felt the cartels were trying to scare search teams away."I just think they're trying to send a statement that they don't want us there," she said. "We haven't really processed what it means."We really want to express our condolences and our sympathy to his family," she said. "It's just sad that this is an everyday occurrence."Read the full story here.Click here for comments.
