It's because I'm in a country where its women do not have the right to divorce their husbands and are deprived of their basic rights."Where's the US?Where was the US representative when they gave Iran the seat for women rights?Where?.................silence?


  • Is lying for jihad permissible by Islam?ActForAmerica displays a video, Taqiyya, explaining that jihadists lie to Americans in behalf of their cause. The video is presented by authorities citing clear-speaking authorities and original sources. “Taqiyya” means prevention. Under its Islamic doctrine, Muslims are forbidden to lie, except in certain circumstances. Those circumstances are ones preventing harm to:(1) Islam; (2) The believers’ society; and (3) their families. The video cites verses of the Koran and Islamic authorities and the history of Islam on circumstance.A recent example of Islamic deception was demonstrated by Arafat's aide and successor, Abbas. Abbas told U.S. Jewish leaders that he opposed Holocaust denial, incitement to terrorism, and ethnic violence. He neglected to tell them that his graduate thesis promoted Holocaust denial, he praises terrorists, and he threatened war if his diplomacy does not get the mortal concessions he demands of Israel. (I documented many instances of Abbas and his officials glorifying terrorism).

  • HT:WeaselZippers.Obama Congratulates Kenya for Passing Constitution He Bankrolled, Implements Sharia in Non-Muslim Country, Liberalizes Abortion.The new constitution was approved by about 70% of voters.

They believe they wear what they describe as slags’ clothing showing their bodies, and deserve what they get.’I think the police are over cautious about this issue because they fear being branded racist. That they fear being branded racist. That is wrong. These are criminals that should be treated as criminals whatever their race.’

  • Ground Zero Mosque on Fast Track, but Greek Church Waits.Too many Americans are sleepwalking when it comes to understanding Islamic policies during the last 1,400 years of what I see as its brutal history. No one talks about St. Nicholas Greek Orthodox Church, which was crushed by the collapsing Twin Towers.Why is the mosque put on the fast track to construction when St. Nicholas’ reconstruction is being hindered by New York City bureaucracy?Wake up, America, before it is too late. The Greek Orthodox faithful of the Balkans were enslaved by Islam for 500 years. Ask me what it means to live under the laws of Islam, under Sharia Law and the Hadith. Call me and I will provide a history lesson on what can be like to live under Islam extremists.Fr. Constantine J. Simones Waterford

  • The Left’s War on the Army Continued: Soldier in Uniform Refused Service in Supermarket.A mistake? Really? This wasn’t a mistake at all. They knew full well what they were doing. They were simply honest about their hatred for soldiers. Well, their hatred for British soldiers that is – something tells me they have less problems with soldiers from countries ruled by leftists and / or Islamists, but that as aside.

  • HT:MotherJones.BP Fires 10,000 Cleanup Workers.New BP CEO Bob Dudley wasn't kidding when he announced last week that it was time for the company to scale back oil-spill cleanup operations. In fact, by the time he'd said that, the responder force had been drawn down by about 25 percent.The scaleback is set to continue. Supervisors say they're supposed to break down to just a "skeleton crew" by the end of September, so hopefully the media myth that there's no more oil anywhere comes true. "Everything still changes day to day," the supervisor told me. "You don't know when a bunch of oil's gonna pop up."

  • Why You May Not Want to Join the Shirley Sherrod Fan Club (Part 2).Judging by the smiles she gave during her NAACP speech, the $300,000 that she and her husband received for “pain and suffering” were remarkably effective in reversing the psychological damage inflicted by the USDA. Or perhaps she smiled because the USDA paid millions of dollars more than her land was worth. Or her buoyant mood may stem from another example of governmental largesse: hubby Charles announced that the FCC awarded them a license for a full-power radio station in Albany, Georgia. He lamented that they’d previously “had no means of communicating with our people.” In the context of his speech, “our people” means “black people.”

  • Kerry: Unemployed America Needs New Muslim Employees.WASHINGTON: US Senator and chairman of Senate’s Foreign Relations Committee, John Kerry, appealed on Tuesday for cementing US ties with the Muslim world with a two-way exchange of professionals like teachers, city planners, and public health workers.

  • Mexico Finds Tunnel, Possible Tombs Under Ruins.Mexican archaeologists find 1,800-year-old tunnel, possible tombs under Teotihuacan ruins.Experts say a tomb discovery would be significant because the social structure of Teotihuacan remains a mystery after nearly 100 years of archaeological exploration at the site, which is best known for the towering Pyramids of the Moon and the Sun.No depiction of a ruler, or the tomb of a monarch, has ever been found, setting the metropolis apart from other pre-Hispanic cultures that deified their rulers.
