  • Church in Israel and Arabia, mission and religious freedom.Christians must leave their ghetto and stop being inward looking. They bear witness through their work, pilgrimages and daily ecumenical work. The Vicariate of Arabia is home to more than 100 nationalities. Despite the lack of full religious freedom, the Church is alive.“Our Churches are not missionary enough,” said Mgr Marcuzzo, who has lived in the region for 50 years. “In the past, Christian communities in the Middle East had a strong missionary impulse (recent discoveries indicate that Nestorians reached Tibet in the early centuries of Christianity). Today instead, we are too closed, ghettoised, inward looking because of circumstances that forced us to be this way.Read the full story here.Click here for comments.

  • Obama signs Nasa up to new future.The US space agency (Nasa) has been given a new direction, one that will seek to put astronauts in orbit using privately run launch services.The change comes into effect with the signing by President Barack Obama of the Nasa Authorization Act 2010.The legislation, passed by Congress last week, mandates the agency to fly the space station until 2020 and to launch one extra shuttle next year.It also instructs Nasa to start work on a rocket for deep-space exploration.The president's signature on the act brings to an end eight months of fractious debate on Capitol Hill about the future course of the agency.Hmmm...something tells me there's bound to be a catch,but what?Read the full story here.Click here for comments.

  • Trading cape for the burqa.Hide your face and grab the kids. Coming soon to a TV in your child's bedroom is a posse of righteous, Sharia-com pliant Muslim superheroes -- including one who fights crime hidden head-to-toe by a burqa.These Islamic butt-kickers are ready to bring truth, justice and indoctrination to impressionable Western minds.The Hub, a joint venture with Hasbro toys, announced in May that it would produce and air episodes of "The 99." But then, murmurs of dissatisfaction turned into a cry.How can a secular nation endorse a children's show aimed at pushing one religion?Mom-of-two Trish Mobley said, "I have no problem with Muslim superheroes, but lose the burqa. A female superhero should not wear a symbol of subservience to men. It's also completely impractical when fighting bad guys."Now we're getting a comic book based on a wheelchair-bound Muslim superhero. What's next?Let me tell you where i think the idea of a wheelchair-bound Muslim superhero comes from: Quote "Yassin, bound to a wheelchair since he hurt his back in a childhood.Sheik Yassin was a founder of Hamas , a terrorist organization.." Yassin founded Hamas at the start of the first intifada."They will glorify the man who founded the terrorist group HAMAS!!Read the full story here.Click here for comments.

  • HT:EndoftheAmericanDream.What Do The American People Believe About Government?As the November elections draw near, a number of polling organizations have been asking the American people fundamental questions about what they believe about politics and what they believe about government. So what have these polls shown? Well, it is undeniable that distrust and dissatisfaction with the government is growing. The American people are getting fed up with what is going on in Washington. It is also clear that the number of Americans that are in favor of big government is decreasing. But it is actually more complicated than that.Read the full story here for comments.

  • HT:Directorblue.You'll never guess who's behind the foreclosure crisis about to crush the housing market again (hint: it begins with a Fannie and ends with a Mae).The financial blogs have been atwitter for months over paperwork problems in the housing industry related to foreclosures. Around one-quarter of all recent home sales are foreclosures and now it appears many of those transactions -- and, worse, the mortgage-backed securities that undergird much of the economy -- may be at risk.Just when you think things can't get any worse, we discover that Democrats are thinking of implementing a foreclosure moratorium, which would literally freeze the entire housing market in its tracks.Hmmmm........better wait till after the devaluation?Read the full story here.Click here for comments.

  • HT:ShalomLife.French Priest Uncovers Mass Graves In Ukraine.Before Treblinka, Sobibor, Maidanek – before any of that – Jews were being killed in the Ukraine. It started early on, in 1942 when Germany invaded the Ukraine and ended in 1944. Two million Jews lived there before the War. One and half million were murdered and lie in unmarked mass graves, unrecognized and unremembered. Babi Yar, where 34,000 died in a ravine just outside of Kiev in 1944, is the only exception. They were killed by the Germans and by their many Ukrainian collaborators. They lie forgotten mainly because the Soviet regime would not allow any publication concerning these Jews.The victims were taken from their homes to locations just outside the towns and villages they lived in. There, they were shot at close range, face to face or in the back. Many died buried alive – men, women, children, babies.That is until a French Catholic priest, Father Patrick Desbois, came along. He has spent several years searching for the remains of the Jews murdered during the war in the Ukraine and has excavated hundreds of mass graves containing the bones of Jews massacred during this time. The present population, unwilling to make this public, have demolished all vestiges of Jewish life in the Ukraine. “Synagogues are used as garbage dumps, Jewish cemeteries have become market places and mass graves yield the bones of the murdered every time there is a thaw,” writes journalist Adam R. Tomaszewski.Read the full story here.Click here for comments.

  • HT:BacktoBasics.By:MichelleMalkin.Newly nativist Democrats and their own foreign funny money.The Obama White House has been an echo chamber for the Soros-funded Center for American Progress from Day One — from bashing Fox News, attacking talk radio, and pimping “media justice” and the Orwellian Fairness Doctrine, to crusading for the government health care takeover using Astroturfed doctors and taxpayer-funded operatives installed in the health care bureaucracy.Team Obama has gotten away with its left-wing myna bird routine. Until now.Read the full story here.Click here for comments.

  • Jailed Iranian Filmmaker Challenges Supreme Leader.Iranian filmmaker and journalist Mohammad Nourizad has written an open letter to Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei arguing that the United States does more to protect religious freedom and moral values than Iran.Nourizad -- who has been in Tehran's Evin prison since August --- wrote in his letter on October 10 that since Iran's disputed 2009 presidential election, violations of people's privacy has become more common.He said religious mobs have attacked the home of Ayatollah Yusef Sanei, a critic of Khamenei. In the United States, by contrast, he said personal privacy is strictly protected by law.Comparing morality in Iran and the United States, Nourizad wrote: "Americans have been brought up in such a way that they seldom lie, while lying is clearly evident among the people and authorities in our country."He asked: "The chances of an American prosecutor telling a lie are virtually nil, except in rare cases, but what about prosecutors in our country? Our prosecutors lie as easily as taking a sip of water -- they formulate and disseminate untrue rulings."As for freedom of speech, Nourizad wrote to Khamenei: "You are the only person in Iran who has freedom of speech, while everyone in America has freedom of speech."He continued: "We are Muslims but tainted by hypocrisy, while [Americans] who seem to be pagans do not know hypocrites. You, as an imam, should issue a fatwa and tell us which nation is closer to God."Read the full story here.Click here for comments.

  • HT:IsraelMatzav.An unusual demonstration (for Israel) was held outside the US embassy in Tel Aviv on Monday night. Shoes and eggs were thrown at this picture of President Obama (which, as you may recall, was taken while he was on the phone with Prime Minister Netanyahu in April 2009 and touched off quite a scandal because it was considered disparaging to Netanyahu) to protest the pressure he is putting on Israel to extend the 'settlement freeze.'asked “if Obama can be against the burning of the Koran, how can he kick around the Bible?” At the beachfront promenade on Monday, protesters held an assortment of signs, including one reading “Obama, Israel is not ketchup, so don’t squeeze” and “Obama, you are not the 12th imam.”Some in attendance shouted insults directed at the US president, including, “Go to hell, Obama,” “Go back to Kenya” and “You are not a Christian, Obama.”Read the full story here.Click here for comments.

  • The elephant in the Obama Whitehouse.While the media, Talk Radio hosts and Conservatives discuss Meg Whitman’s maid or Christine O’Donnell’s witchery, our government is slowly taking total control of our lifestyles, property and food with hardly a mention. This is the elephant in the Whitehouse which no one is discussing.New powers would give Obama the power to completely shut down industries that don’t follow government orders of the new bill. Those companies who do not comply will be force to shut down.Imagine being without banking access, television, electricity, energy, water, the abililty to work or communicate? All industries including financial, healthcare, insurance, food and energy would be affected. America would ‘shut down’.This is part of a bigger picture which is the real agenda…the government is moving towards the control of our land, waterways, energy, food, housing, etc., as indicated by the United Nations Agenda 21, signed in 1992 by President George H.W. Bush and implemented by each president since. . The main purpose of Agenda 21 is to take away our private rights and control the population.This is the elephant in the Whitehouse.Read the full story here.Click here for comments.

  • Brady Campaign's favored (apparently) response to tyranny--sit there and take it.Last Friday, the Brady Campaign's Dennis Henigan, in one of his more or less weekly screeds in the Huffington Post, claimed that the U.S. is threatened by "right wing extremist militias," who along with the NRA, subscribe to a "dangerous" view of the role of the Second Amendment.What's most telling, though, I think, is that anyone who denies that it is legitimate to resist, by force of arms, a tyrannical government, can only be arguing that resistance to tyranny is not legitimate. In other words, we are, apparently, expected to sit here and take it.I have an answer to that, and in contrast to my usual long windedness, this answer is even more succinct than "Molon Labe." Not two words, but two letters: "No."Read the full story here.Click here for comments.
