  • Speechworld vs. Realworld.The widening gulf between Obama’s rhetoric and reality.(NationalReview).By Mark Steyn.The Democrats seem to have given up on budgets. Hey, who can blame them? They’ve got a ballpark figure: Let’s raise $2 trillion in revenue every year, and then spend $4 trillion. That seems to work pretty well, so why get hung up on a lot of fine print? Harry Reid says the Senate has no plans to produce a budget, but in April the president did give a speech about “a new budget framework” that he said would save $4 trillion over the next twelve years.That would be 2023, if you’re minded to take him seriously. Paul Ryan, chairman of the House Budget Committee, did. Last week he asked Douglas Elmendorf, director of the Congressional Budget Office, if he’d “estimated the budget impact of this framework. “No, Mr. Chairman,” replied Director Elmendorf, deadpan. “We don’t estimate speeches. We need much more specificity than was provided in that speech.”“We don’t estimate speeches”: There’s an epitaph to chisel on the tombstone of the republic. Unfortunately for those of us on the receiving end, giving speeches is what Obama does. Indeed, having no other accomplishments to his name (as Hillary Clinton pointed out), giving speeches is what got the president his job. You remember — the stuff about “hope” and “change.” Were the CBO in the business of “estimating speeches,” they’d have run the numbers and concluded that under the Obama plan, vague abstract nouns would be generating 87 percent of GDP by 2016.According to the World Bank, the Western military/aid presence now accounts for 97 percent of Afghanistan’s GDP. The bit that’s left doesn’t function, not least because it doesn’t need to. How can, say, Helmand develop an economic base when everybody with a whit of sense is making massively inflated salaries as a translator for the Yanks or a security guard for some EU outreach project? When the 97 percent revenue tide recedes with the American withdrawal, what’s left will be the same old 3 percent ugly tribal dump Afghanistan was a decade ago. It will leave as little trace as the Obama stimulus.The sheer waste is appalling, immoral, and deeply destructive. In Kandahar as in California, all that matters is excess: It’s not working? Then you need to spend more. More more more. What does it matter? You’re not spending anything real. America would have to find $15 trillion just to get back to having nothing in its pocket. But who cares? As long as we’re united in our commitment to excess, no CBO debt-to-GDP ratio graph is too steep for us to take to the next level, and no horizon — 2060, 2080, 2104 — is too distant to serve as a plausible estimate for significant deficit reduction.In Realworld, political speeches would be about closing down unnecessary federal bureaucracies, dramatically downsizing or merging others, and ending makework projects and mission creep. The culture of excess that distinguishes the hyperpower at twilight would be reviled at every turn. But instead the “hugely persuasive” orator declares that there’s nothing to worry about that even more government can’t cure. In Speechworld, “no hill is too steep, no horizon is beyond our reach.” In Realworld, that’s mainly because we’re going downhill. And the horizon is a cliff edge.Read the full story here.



  • "DEATH TO THE JEWS"?Has the UN become the tool to eradicate Israel?(IsraelMatzav).If you needed any more proof of the total moral decadence of the United Nations, here it is.Iran, which has called for the destruction of a fellow UN member state, has been elected Vice President of the United Nations General Assembly!On Wednesday, the U.N. General Assembly elected Iran one of its vice presidents and Qatar as president, each for a year-long term starting in September. At one and the same time the Obama State Department has been blanketing the airwaves with speeches on this administration’s love affair with the UN under the title “principled engagement.” But with Wednesday’s U.N. elections, what kind of principles might the Obama administration be talking about?Oh and by the way, you're not likely to see Hillel Neuer and UN Watch destroying Iranian speakers at the Durban III conference. To ensure that the views of Ahmadinejad and company get full billing, the General Assembly will also be treated to “summaries of the discussions” (conducted during the day at roundtables), while the whole event will be webcast around the globe. A few non-governmental organizations will be allowed to speak – provided that they are included on a list drawn up by the president of the General Assembly and approved by U.N. member states “on a no-objection basis.”In case you’re wondering, the resolution that hands Iran and its friends a veto over the selection of anti-racism advocates who will be permitted to speak at Durban III was adopted by the General Assembly without a peep from Obama administration delegates.Principled engagement, U.N. style.Your tax money at work. That's especially true if you're an American. Your government pays 22% of the UN budget, and will be paying millions of dollars (along with the City of New York, which has the largest Jewish population in the world outside of Israel) to protect all these 'diplomats.'Hmmmm.......Obama's Jewish voters will be 'adapted' last as reward for their donated cash,....."Responsibility To Protect".Read the full story here.


  • Bill would "ICE" Obama admin's power to grant amnesty to illegal immigrants.(TheHill).The Republican chairman of the House Judiciary Committee is crafting a bill that would temporarily freeze the Obama administration’s power to grant amnesty to illegal immigrants.The measure is in response to a memo issued by the head of Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) last week that approved a broader breadth of discretion for agency officials when considering whether to deport someone through the Secure Communities program.Rep. Lamar Smith (R-Texas), who is sponsoring the legislation, blasted the memo. He said that under the new guidelines ICE agents could defer the deportations of “millions of deportable illegal and criminal immigrants.”“The Obama administration cannot continue to pick and choose which laws it will enforce,” said Smith in a statement. “It is outrageous that they have put illegal immigrants and their liberal political base ahead of the American people.”Smith’s bill is expected to be introduced soon, according to a committee aide.The 7,000-member ICE labor union has stated its opposition to the memo and issued a unanimous vote of no-confidence of ICE Director John Morton.On Tuesday Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano and Education Secretary Arne Duncan are scheduled to testify before the Senate Judiciary Committee at a hearing on the DREAM Act.Realizing the dim prospects to pass the DREAM Act in this Congress, the Congressional Hispanic Caucus (CHC) asked Obama last month to delay the deportation of certain illegal immigrants, such as students who have been in the U.S. for at least five years and do not have criminal histories.Hmmmm.......Thugocracy in it's natural habitat.Read the full story here.


  • "The War On Christianity"Lets build A One World Religion: 50 U.S. Churches To Read From The Quran On Sunday.(TheAmericanDream).The three main pillars of the "New World Order" that the global elite want to bring about are a one world economy, a one world government and a one world religion. A lot of attention gets paid to the development of the first two pillars, but the third pillar gets very little attention. But the truth is that a one world religion is getting closer than ever. "Interfaith" conferences and meetings are being held with increasing frequency all over the globe. Major global religious leaders are urging all of us to focus on our "shared" religious traditions. The belief that all religions are equally valid paths to the same destination is being taught in houses of worship and at religious institutions all over the globe. This "interfaith movement" is being promoted by NGOs, "charitable foundations" and top politicians and it is being backed by big money all over the planet.Now some U.S. churches are trying to take things to another level. On June 26th, the National Cathedral in Washington D.C. and approximately 50 other churches in 26 U.S. states will publicly read from the Quran during their Sunday worship services.This is all part of an interfaith project being promoted by the Interfaith Alliance and Human Rights First. The theme of this Sunday is "Faith Shared: Uniting in Prayer and Understanding", and the goal is apparently to show how much Christian churches in the United States respect Islam.The following are some of the other prominent U.S. churches that will be doing Quran readings this Sunday....
*Christ Church in New York City
*All Saints Church in Pasadena, California
*Park Hill Congregational in Denver
*Hillview United Methodist in Boise, Idaho
*First United Lutheran in San Francisco
*St. Elizabeth's Episcopal Church in Honolulu
In all, 'churches' in 26 U.S. states will be participating.
But these Quran readings are just supposed to be the beginning of something bigger. The following is from a description of the Quran reading project on the website of Human Rights First....At its core, this project will bring together Christian, Jewish and Muslim clergy to read from and hear from each other’s sacred texts. In doing so, they will serve as a model for respect and cooperation and create a concrete opportunity to build and strengthen working ties between and among faith communities moving forward.The truth is that all Americans have the freedom to read the Quran whenever they want. But should Christian churches be reading from it during Sunday worship and should they be seeking to "build and strengthen working ties" with Islamic groups that are seeking to promote the spread of another religion?Obviously, many Christian leaders are not pleased with this development. Worldview Weekend President Brannon Howse recently made the following comment regarding the reading of the Quran in U.S. churches....
"They have denied the exclusivity of Jesus Christ. They have denied the inerrancy of Scripture; they've denied the inspiration of Scripture."
Sadly, this is not a new trend. The truth is that the "interfaith movement" has been building momentum for decades and some of the most prominent religious leaders in the world are involved.For example, the following excerpt from a CNS article talks about a huge "interfaith event" hosted by the Pope when he visited Washington D.C. in 2008....
When Pope Benedict XVI comes to the Pope John Paul II Cultural Center in Washington for an early-evening interfaith meeting April 17 with Buddhists, Hindus, Jews, Muslims and representatives of other religions, space will be at a premium.Many top U.S. Christian leaders have been very involved in the "interfaith movement" as well.For example, Brian McLaren, one of the top leaders of the emerging church movement, actually celebrated Ramadan back in 2009.Rick Warren, a member of the Council on Foreign Relations, has been a guest speaker at the national conference of the Islamic Society of North America.Some time ago, a virtual "who's who" of evangelical Christian leaders that included Rick Warren, Robert Schuller, Brian McLaren, Richard Cizik and Bill Hybels all signed a letter to the Islamic community that was entitled "Loving God And Neighbor Together". This letter made it abundantly clear that these Christians leaders consider Allah and the Christian God to be the same entity.Let's take a quick look at a couple of quotes from the letter....
Before we “shake your hand” in responding to your letter, we ask forgiveness of the All-Merciful One.In Islam, "the All-Merciful One" is one of the key names for Allah.So in this letter the Christian leaders were praying to Allah and were asking for his forgiveness and were acknowledging that he is God.
Here is another quote from the letter....
 If we fail to make every effort to make peace and come together in harmony you correctly remind us that “our eternal souls” are at stake as well.Very strangely, in the letter the Christian leaders claim that their "eternal souls" are at stake if they do not make every effort to "come together in harmony" with the Islamic community.
Once again, people in America are free to believe whatever they want, but Christian leaders should not be trying to develop religious ties with Islam.The truth is that Jesus would not have wanted anything to do with this one world religion that the New World Order is trying to bring in.
In John 14:6, Jesus made the following statement.....I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.
You would think that would be so clear that no Christian leader would ever be able to misunderstand it.In fact, the very first two of the Ten Commandments are about how no other gods should ever be worshipped except for the one true God. In Exodus 20:3-6 it says the following....
Thou shalt have no other gods before me. Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth. Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I the LORD thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me; And shewing mercy unto thousands of them that love me, and keep my commandments.
But today everybody wants to be "politically correct".That is especially true of religious leaders.But this is exactly what the global elite want. They want everyone herded into one giant "global religion" that they will be able to take charge of and control.Of course once the global religion is established, they won't have much use for the real Jesus Christ or for the Bible.Even if you are not a Christian, you should be deeply troubled by these developments.Hmmmm......MFS : In 2004 Vatican instruction Redemptionis Sacramentum forbade such readings. The document states that “it is strictly to be considered an abuse to introduce into the celebration of Holy Mass elements that are contrary to the prescriptions of the liturgical books and taken from the rites of other religions.”This just confirms what i always said it’s against the first commandment “You shall have no other Gods before me”.Read the full story here.



  • Caroline Glick on U.S. Liberal American Jews "They become suckers out of their own free will".(JPost).Column One: Just before Obama snowballed his Jewish donors in Washington, Yale engaged in a similarly transparent bid to romance its Jewish supporters.This week we have been witness to two transparent attempts to sell liberal American Jews a bill of goods. And from the looks of things, both were successful. The first instance of liberal American Jewish credulity this week unfolded Monday night in Washington. At a five-star hotel, eighty Jewish donors shelled out between $25,000-35,800 to attend a fundraiser with US President Barack Obama.As has become his habit, Obama opened his remarks by talking about his commitment to Israel’s security. And as has become his habit, Obama went on to say that it is his job to force Israelis to bow to his demands because he knows what is best for Israel.Speaking of his ongoing efforts to force Israel to concede its right to defensible borders before entering into negotiations with the Hamas-Fatah unity government, Obama said, “There are going to be moments over the course of the next six months or the next 12 months or the next 24 months in which there may be tactical disagreements [between the US and Israel] in terms of how we approach these difficult problems.”Obama went on to say that he expects his American Jewish supporters to take his side in his attacks on Israel.As he put it, the quest for peace between Israel and the Hamas-Fatah government is “going to require that not only this administration employs all of its creative powers to try to bring about peace in the region, but it’s also going to require all of you as engaged citizens of the United States who are friends of Israel making sure…that you’re helping to shape how both Americans and Israelis think about the opportunities and challenges.”And how did the Jewish donors respond to Obama’s presentation? They loved it. They were, in the words of Obama donor Marilyn Victor, “reassured.”What does Obama have to do for these liberal American Jews to accept that he is no friend of Israel’s? Apparently the answer is that there is nothing Obama can do that will convince his many American Jewish supporters that he is not Israel’s friend.They will never believe such a thing because doing so will require them to choose between two unacceptable options. The first option is to admit to themselves that invoting for Obama, they are voting against Israel.The self-righteousness shared by many of Obama’s Jewish supporters makes this option unacceptable. These are people who demonstrate their goodness by embracing every politically correct liberal cause as their own. From abortion to socialized medicine to free passes for illegal immigrants, to opposition to the Iraq war, liberal American Jews are ready to go out on a limb for every cause the liberal media supports.But ask them to support anything that in any way compromises their self-image as do gooders and liberals and they will shut you out. Consider their willingness to turn a blind eye to Obama’s 20-year association with his anti-Semitic preacher Jeremiah Wright. Just this week Wright was back in the news when he delighted a crowd of thousands of African American worshippers in Baltimore by libeling Israel saying, “The State of Israel is an illegal, genocidal … place. To equate Judaism with the State of Israel is to equate Christianity with [rapper] Flavor Flav.”During the 2008 presidential campaign liberal American Jews attacked critics ofObama’s longstanding devotion to his Jew-hating preacher as McCarthyites who were spreading allegations of guilt by association.And now, when Obama has made supporting Israel a socially costly thing for his supporters to do, rather than pay the price, his self-righteous American Jewish supporters refuse to admit that Obama is not pro-Israel. They attack as a liar anyone who points out that his policies are deeply hostile to Israel.The same Ivy League snobbery that makes it socially unacceptable to vote for a Republican – and certainly not for a Sarah Palin or Michele Bachmann despite their deep-seated and consistent support for Israel – is what allowed Yale to get away with ending its study of Islamic anti-Semitism by besmirching Small’s academic achievements and good name. Remove him from the club, and you end opposition to his academically unjustifiable firing.The great circus master P.T. Barnum said famously that there is a sucker born every minute.Liberal American Jews aren’t born suckers. They become suckers out of their own free will.Read the full story here.


  • ‘Islam Is A Religion Of Peace!(BigPeace).Since 9/11, the MSM, academicians, and leftist politicians have been working overtime to convince us Muslims are just another people group and that to single them out for extra scrutiny is to return to the days of Jim Crow laws in Mississippi. We’re actually told the problem is with us: that it’s our fault that some Muslims do commit terrorist acts or talk of America as “the Great Satan” or purposefully run over one of their daughters with a car because she was in love with an infidel.Don’t you get it? “Islam is a religion of peace!”Of course this is a hard sell to Israel or to family members of 9/11 victims or to the myriad of Westerners that Muslims have captured and beheaded in the last decade alone. It’s also a hard sell to anyone who’s noticed that various Muslim groups keep using violence to assure us of their non-violence: just as they use intolerance to assure us of their tolerance (try carrying a Bible into Saudi Arabia and let me know how that works out for you).It’s also hard to sell the women of Norway on the claim that “Islam is a religion of peace!” since every “assault-rape” that took place in their country in 2010 was carried out by a Muslim. (83 such rapes in total.) In some cases the rapist actually told the victim that his religion allowed him to rape her.It’s also growing increasingly hard to tell members of our military that “Islam is a religion of peace!” because more and more Muslims are taking it unto themselves to attack our stateside military facilities as a way to show whose side they’re on in the War on Terror. It was just this past week that two Muslims were arrested in Seattle for their plan “to attack a military processing center…using machine guns and grenades.” And it was just the week prior that a Marine Corps reservist named Yonathan Melaku was arrested for suspicious activity around the Pentagon and thereafter found to have a video in his possession that showed him driving by the National Museum of the Marine Corps, shooting his pistol at the museum, and chanting “allahu Akbar.”WARNING: liberals are so screwed up in the way they think, that after reading the examples of the would-be attackers in Seattle and the Muslim who was shooting at the museum in DC, all they’ll probably say is that we need more gun control: that if we make guns harder for these folks to get then the likelihood of such attacks will be diminished. (Note to liberals: these folks do their best killing with bombs, knives, and airplanes.)Anyway, back to my point: “Islam is a religion of peace!” (I think that’s what they chant when they’re not chanting “death to America.”)Hmmmm.....The mind of the Liberal as bare as the desert in Sudan.Read the full story here.

Two HUGE intel leads in my email box this morning from way-back contacts that I’ve had for years, that are actually somewhat connected concepts.
1. File this one under “Now It All Makes Sense”. A Missouri farming and ranching contact just got off a conference call wherein he was informed that the federal government is sending out letters to all of the flooded out farmers in the Missouri River flood plain and bottoms notifying them that the Army Corps of Engineers will offer to BUY THEIR LAND.Intentionally flood massive acreage of highly productive farmground. Destroy people’s communities and homes. Catch them while they are desperate and afraid and then swoop in and buy the ground cheap. Those evil sons of bitches.
2. George Soros appears to be “investing” in farmground through the same puppet company that he used to get into the grain elevator and fertilizer business. The company is called Ospraie Capital Management and is buying up farmground in a joint venture with Teays River Investments as a partner. Here is that announcement: Click Here
Okay. Here’s the connection. This Ospraie outfit was a hedge fund specializing in commodities that was started and run by some cocky child who didn’t know how to trade bear markets and got his butt kicked into next week in the grain market of 2008. He also lost a fortune trying to trade RARE EARTH METALS. In fact, it was so bad that he had to shut his fund down because he had promised his investors that he would give them all of their investment money back if the fund lost more than 30% in one year. Whoopsie.
But it appears that Soros swooped in and saved the day because this Ospraie is the “co-investor” with Soros that bought the remnants of ConAgra’s trading operation and renamed it… Gavilon. In the industry, it is widely acknowledged that Ospraie IS Soros. That three-page article citation is here .
As you probably remember, Gavilon just recently bought both DeBruce Grain out of Kansas City and the biggest grain elevator company in the Pacific Northwest, thus making Soros (who is the money behind Gavilon through both his own Soros Fund Management AND his de facto control of Ospraie) the third-largest grain company in the U.S. with 280 million bushels of storage capacity, behind only Archer Daniels Midland (542 million bushels storage capacity) and Cargill (344 million bushels storage capacity). That citation is here.

Bottom line: Soros, through Ospraie, is buying up farmground. Please also note that the hotlink citation above is dated June 26, 2009. My contact says this has been going on for two years – and also remember what I told you about farmground prices inflating wildly, especially in Illinois. I have personally confirmed farmground in Illinois selling for $13,000 per acre within the last month, whereas that same kind of ground in Illinois was going for $5500 per acre the day Obama was inaugurated.Spread the word.
Two days ago, Ann posted the following on her website.
 Missouri Basin Flooding: 100% Intentional
Posted by Ann Barnhardt – June 22, AD 2011 10:07 AM MST
The Army Corps of Engineers in collusion with Marxist-Environmentalists have engineered a flood scenario that will, is, and already has killed people and will result in property damage in the multi-multi billions of dollars. And it is all intentional.
Read “The Purposeful Flooding of America’s Heartland” HERE at AmericanThinker.com
The excuse is saving the wetland habitat of the blue-butted water auk or some taurusfimus like that.Hmmmm........Now consider that the new S510 law would preclude the public’s right to grow, own, trade, transport, share, feed and eat each and every food that nature makes, this gives a monopoly on growing food.Read the full story here.

  • Scores of forced marriages are Kent's "secret shame" claims campaigner.(YourCanterbury).Hundreds of victims of forced marriages are suffering in silence in Kent, according to a charity dedicated to exposing the county’s "secret shame".The Karma Nirvana organisation has reported a 52 per cent increase in calls from Kent in the last year but says there are likely to be many more young people – mainly those from Pakistani Muslim and Indian Sikh families – who are too afraid to come forward. Co-founder Jasvinder Sanghera, who was disowned by her parents after refusing an arranged marriage 29 years ago, told KoS the problem results in countless suicides and at least 12 "honour killings" nationally every year.She added: "What we know about forced marriage is that it’s under-reported and a hidden crime. In Kent there will be many hundreds of victims, and they could be anywhere."It’s not just areas where there are large Asian populations like Gravesend, where these crimes are likely to be going on. That’s why more work needs to be done to identify victims living in other towns where the population is not so large."Karma Nirvana’s helpline takes about 5,000 calls a year, with the majority of callers aged 12-21 but the youngest just eight.In addition to south Asian communities, forced marriage is also a problem – albeit to a lesser extent – among Kurdish, Iranian, Afghan and Somalian families.In many cases marriages are arranged before a child reaches the age of consent, with some children even promised to other families at birth.But even when marriages are arranged legally, Ms Sanghera says, participants should be allowed to decline without fear of reprisal.She said: "The community network among people who practice arranged marriages is often strong, and word quickly gets out if something goes wrong."Another problem is that many people are prevented from integrating because British society is regarded as a threat to their culture."Multiculturalism is a myth as far as these people are concerned, but sadly some professionals turn a blind eye to what’s going on because they see it as a cultural problem. But it’s not a cultural problem – it’s abuse."This week Ms Sanghera and other survivors held a discussion at Kent Police headquarters in Maidstone, where they spoke to professionals from the force, domestic violence teams, child protection bodies, health workers, schools, social workers and charities.Saima (not real name) spoke at the roadshow, revealing how she was tricked into visiting Pakistan on holiday only to be kidnapped and wed to an abusive husband.She fell pregnant and returned to the UK in secret but lost her baby when she was stabbed by a hitman hired by her family.Saima said: "I think they thought I had brought shame on them and brought dishonour on the family."I remember talking to my mum and telling her everything he had done to me and every way he abused me. I was crying. But she told me: ‘He’s your husband. Even if he kills you we don’t care because you’re no longer our property’."Hmmmmm................. "we don’t care because you’re no longer our property".Read the full story here.



  • According to US ambassador Bruce Orek, rejecting Obama’s Marxist/statist policies are the signs of a inward, backward looking people.(TundraTabloids).The U.S. Ambassador to Finland, Bruce Orek, was interviewed in the Finnish/Swedish language paper, Hufvudstadsbladet, who stated that the True Finns’ electoral victory in the recent parliamentary election reminds him of the Tea Party’s success in last mid term elections in the US. In fact he said that he “sees basic similarities between the True Finns and the Tea Party”.But instead of simply saying that it reflected the honest will of the people in response to the perceived (but in the TT’s opinion real) failed policies of Washington and Helsinki, he took to smearing the political movements of both countries as being both backward and inward looking.It’s a highly arrogant and condescending opinion that’s shared by many a statist minded bureaucrat and politician; “How dare the people vote wrong, if they are not forward thinking (read = progressive/socialist) then they must be backward and inward thinking.” See how that works?U.S. Ambassador to Finland, Bruce Oreck estimates in an interview with the Hufvudstadsbladet about the Finnish parliamentary election results.Oreck sees some worrying features in the rise of the True Finns. He estimates that the True Finns have basic similarities with the conservative Tea Party which opposes the United States President Barack Obama.
- I believe that the True Finns as well as the U.S. Tea Party represent people who have anxiety about changes. They are looking back to the past, when everything was simpler. It is understandable, but one can not return to the past. Isolation from the rest of the world and the closure of borders would be a bad thing to Finland as well as for the world at large, Oreck said to the Hufvudstadsbladet.According to Oreck, turning inward would hinder the spreading of on new ideas to Finland, and hinder trade.NOTE: For Oreck, if you resist socialism, you resist change. The only thing that the True Finns and the Tea Party would spread, is freedom and liberty, something that this statist fears most.Hmmmmm......The new 'master race' in motion?Read the full story here.


  • Medieval murder in modern times: Woman faces death by beheading in Saudi Arabia for crime she 'committed as a child'.(DailyMail).A young maid is facing death by beheading in Saudi Arabia for a crime she claims she did not commit. Rizana Nafeek, who alleges she was a teenager at the time of the incident, was arrested in May 2005 on charges of murdering a four-month-old baby who was in her care.She denies murder and claims she desperately tried to save the child who choked while she was looking after it.Saudi Arabia have come under fire from Human Rights groups for the handling of her case after it was revealed there had been a mix-up involving the year she was born in.The authorities have her date of birth as 1982 however her birth certificate states she was born in 1988 - making her 17 at the time of the alleged incident.If Saudi Arabia went ahead with the execution it would be in breach of the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child, which it has ratified.Human Rights groups claim Rizana had no legal representation before or during her trial.Sri-Lankan born Nafeek's mother Rafeena said her daughter moved to the country so that she could send money home to help educate her three siblings.Desperate for work she found a job as a domestic worker but was shocked when she was asked to look after a baby, Naif al-Quthaibi, because she believed she did not have the skills to care for him.Just weeks into her employment tragedy struck and the infant choked while he was being fed.Rafeena, who lives in a tiny village, has previously begged King Abdullah to pardon her daughter and asked him to allow her to return home.If the execution goes ahead the now 23-year-old will dressed in a white robe and be marched into a packed town centre.She will also be blindfolded, shackled and forced to kneel facing Mecca before she is prodded between the shoulders so her head is raised.naturally.Rizana will then be executed, medieval style, with one sweep of a sharply-bladed sword.Amnesty International has condemned the conviction and since revealed Rizana was not allowed to produce her birth certificate which shows her true age during an appeal trial.The charity's Middle East director Malcolm Smart said at the time: 'It would be outrageous if Rizana Nafeek were to be executed for this crime.'It appears that she was herself a child at the time and there are real concerns about the fairness of her trial.'According to the Sunday Express, earlier this month Indonesia banned its citizens from working in the oil-rich country after another maid, Ruyati binti Sapub, 54, was beheaded after she confessed to killing her employer with a meat cleaver because of constant abuse.Hmmmm.........The 'beauty' of Sharia law.Read the full story here.


  • Egyptian Muslims Torch 8 Christian Homes on Rumor of Church Construction.(Aina). A mob of nearly 200 Muslims torched eight Christian homes on Saturday morning in the Upper Egyptian village of Awlad Khalaf. The attack was initiated by a rumor that a house which is being built by Wahib Halim Attia will be turned into a church. Two Christians and one Muslim were injured, no fatalities were reported.Wahib Halim Attia obtained a license to build a house in the village on a 95 square meter plot. The house grew to an area of 350 square meters but was still on agricultural land that he owns. This gave rise to the rumor that he intended to build a church instead.Father Weesa Azmy, the priest at St. George Church in the neighboring village of Negou Madam East, said that someone went to the City Council in Dar es Salam and told them about the irregularities in the house construction, and Wahib was ordered to remove the excess by June 24. "Instead Wahib carried on with the construction, which angered the Muslims, who decided to play God and take the law into their own hands; they attacked the construction site and other Christian homes."According to Father Weesa, Muslims broke into the home of Ihab Tamer, who defended himself with a rifle. A Muslim who was there to help Ihab was injured by a bullet in his leg from Tamer's rifle.
