  • Undue interference in the choice of religious leaders.Turkey recognises only four religions: Sunni Islam, the Greek Orthodox Church, the Armenian Apostolic Church and Judaism. It also seeks to determine which religious leaders are elected. Foreign policy appears to shape its choices.The Turkish government continues to interfere in who leads the Greek Orthodox, Armenian Apostolic and Jewish communities. It also determines who leads the Diyanet, the Presidency of Religious Affairs, the highest Islamic religious authority in the country, Forum 18 News Service reports. This violates the rights of each religious group. The Turkish state recognises only four religions: Sunni Islam, Greek Orthodox Church, the Armenian Apostolic Church and Judaism. Other religions are neither recognised nor formally allowed; however, they are de facto tolerated. Moreover, no religious community in Turkey at present has independent legal status in its own right—which means for example that no religious community can own property.The government chooses the head of the Diyanet. Other Muslim groups are not recognised. Even if they are tolerated, the latter can be banned at any given time.Religious freedom is far fetched in Turkey unlike in the EU.

  • Relief organisations 'discriminating against Christian&Hindu flood victims': report.Christians and members of other minority religions are being treated as second-class citizens, said Father Mario Rodrigues, the Lahore-based director of Catholic Mission."They often receive little assistance or are excluded altogether," he told Fides, the Vatican's news agency.

"Shed your blood and deprive children of their mother, why? Because you have lived, because you have loved, because you're a woman and because you're Iranian? Everything within me refuses to accept this."Read the whole story here.

  • HT:BarenakedIslam.OBAMA slashed the entire NASA budget except for his ‘outreach to MUSLIMS ONLY’.And you thought the Regime had backpedaled on this outrageous idea? Think again.

He will bring harmony in the ecumenical-ecclesiastical church. He will offer economic solutions to the world's problems. He will arise as a world leader of peace and prosperity and within three years and a half will become the world's greatest dictator.Beware when this man appears on the world scene. His leadership will take the world into the Great Tribulation of Terror, wars, suffering and death.

  • Brewer Condemns Report to UN Mentioning Ariz. Law.In a letter to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, Brewer says it is "downright offensive" that a state law would be included in the report, which was drafted as part of a UN review of human rights in all member nations every four years."The idea of our own American government submitting the duly enacted laws of a state of the United States to 'review' by the United Nations is internationalism run amok and unconstitutional," Brewer wrote.Governor Brewer you rock!Read the whole thing here.

  • HT:MotherJones.Northwest and Northeast Passages Now Open."It is now possible to completely circumnavigate the Arctic Ocean in ice-free waters, and this will probably be the case for at least a month. This year marks the third consecutive year—and the third time in recorded history—that both the Northwest Passage and Northeast Passage have melted free. The Northeast Passage opened for the first time in recorded history in 2005 and the Northwest Passage in 2007. It now appears that the opening of one or both of these northern passages is the new norm, and business interests are taking note—commercial shipping in the Arctic is on the increase, and there is increasing interest in oil drilling."

  • Life in the hell hole: A makeshift casino, football, but also worrying signs of stress - Inside the mine where 33 men are trapped.Emaciated, wild-eyed and stripped to the waist, with tangled hair and whiskery, dirt-streaked faces, they look like a tribe of cavemen living in some twilight netherworld.Trapped in an eerie underground cavern where nights and days merge, they cling to survival via meagre supplies passed almost half-a-mile down a tiny borehole - their tenuous, umbilical link with the lives they left behind.Yet, watching the extraordinary first video of the 33 Chilean copper miners who have been trapped in claustrophobic torment for 24 days, and who have been told it will take months to free them, what strikes you most forcefully is their utter lack of self-pity.Read the whole thing.

Of course the Americans will have to be prepared that hundreds… of cities will be destroyed by the Chinese.”Read the rest of the story here.

  • Do we really understand Native Indians' anger on tobacco taxation?After the 1992 and 1997 commotion regarding attempts to impose taxation on Indian cigarettes, Buffalo and other locations of the New York State are once again getting ready to undergo similar experiences following information on a potential uprising of Native-Indians in various parts of the State as Governor David Patterson renewed his plan to start collecting taxes on cigarettes sold by Native-Indians.The governor's decision has been supported by businesses statewide who, during a Thursday's news conference in downtown, called on state leaders to stick with the plan, according to Buffalo News.On their side, Indians continue to protest against the state decision alleging that it infringes their sovereignty.

  • Who Is Really Funding the Ground Zero Mosque?For weeks, critics of the 13 story $100 million mega-mosque complex planned for the immediate Ground Zero vicinity have been asking where the funding will be coming from. Its sponsors refuse to provide any information and have even refused to rule out taking contributions from other countries including Iran and Saudi Arabia.We know that radical Islamist organizations such as the Muslim Brotherhood operate through many front organizations. Could the funding of the Ground Zero mosque be all part of an elaborate mosque-in-the box shell game to cover up something far more sinister? Maybe not. But we won’t know until the Ground Zero mosque developer Sharif el-Gamal and his financial backer Hisham Elzanaty begin to come clean about where their money is really coming from.

  • U.S. Zionist group claims discrimination over its stance on Israel; Rightists call IRS "Obama's Gestapo".Right-wing group Z-Street says U.S. Treasury withholding tax breaks because its position on Israel differs from the Obama administration's."Not only is it patently un-American but it is also a clear violation of the First Amendment for a government agency to penalize an organization because of its political position on Israel or anything else," Z-Street said in a statement Friday.

  • Obama’s AmeriKKKa: Condemning Our Nation Before the United Nations.For the first time in our nation’s history, the State Department has submitted a report to the U.N.

  • Why Americans believe Obama is Muslim.There are several reasons that some Americans believe that Barack Hussein Obama is quite possibly a Muslim, and here in this article the attempt will be to give the relevant reasons why some Americans consider this not only a possibility but a likelihood. Please click the links throughout for the substantiation of the statements to follow. People here is Phoenix may or may not have interest in this, yet it is highly relevant to know what the faith of our Nation's leader is.

  • American Founders and Islam.The more we learn, here in America, and right here at home in Phoenix about the truths we face, the better able to face them, we all will be. It has been said many time that Thomas Jefferson’s Qu’ran is a symbol of something further, but to be clear, there is good reason for the fact that Mr. Jefferson needed the information within it. Problems on the high seas and in Islamic waters caused issues of a need for knowledge of what exactly America was facing.

  • 'Torturer Of Tehran' Loses His Untouchable Status.With a frightening reputation and friends in high places, Said Mortazavi for years appeared to have the untouchable status that bred impunity and led his enemies to label him the "torturer of Tehran."As a judge and prosecutor, he shut down more than 60 newspapers, detained scores of journalists and political activists, and was even implicated in the murder and torture of Iranian-Canadian photojournalist Zahra Kazemi, who died in the custody of interrogators in 2003.But now, it seems, Tehran's fearsome former chief prosecutor may have met his nemesis -- brought low by violent events that have shocked Iran's political establishment into seeking a high-profile fall guy.

  • Tell EPA to reject lead ammo ban."The U.S. Supreme Court says Americans have an individual right to keep and bear arms. The EPA says the bullets for those guns may be banned as an environmental hazard," an Investors Business Daily editorial claims.Close but not quite.

  • In One Azerbaijan Village, 'Carrying Water Is Women's Work'.In this small, dusty village in central Azerbaijan, daily life for the local women begins at dawn and ends at sunset. What happens in between, say several Celebiler women, is nonstop labor."First we go to the fields," says one woman dressed in a colorful housecoat. "Then we come back and get our buckets and walk a long distance from here to get water. Then we come home, and begin washing clothes by hand. It's torture for us.""You can't think about resting," says another. "There's no water, no gas. This is real rural life."The women smile ruefully when asked if they have time for small luxuries like relaxing or watching soap operas. Television, says one, is for people who have nothing to do -- and finding such a woman anywhere here is impossible.
