The Curse of Cain

by Daniel Greenfield on Wednesday, July 2nd, 2014

This is article 240 of 240 in the topic Religion

After Cain killed his brother, the Lord told him, “A fugitive and a wanderer shalt thou be in the earth.”

But the natural order has been reversed, instead the Abels, if they survive, become homeless
wanderers and the Cains build their Caliphates on the tombs of their victims.

“Cursed shall you be from the earth,” the Lord said, and so it has been.

The earth under their feet may be cursed, it yields nothing but sand and thistles, but they are nomads, forgetting agriculture, remembering only their tradecraft of murder. They become worshipers of death dreaming of the green verdant fields of paradise which they can reach only if they kill enough men, women and children.

Leaving devastation behind them, dead lands, lost cultures, widows and orphans, they claw their way up to heaven on a ladder of bones.

Everything around them dies until the only green is on their flags. They are cursed from the earth and they curse the earth. Where they go, the world dies.

It is not murder that makes it impossible for Abel to live with Cain says the State Department, says the European Union and says the New York Times. It is Abel’s fields and houses that provoke Cain.

The PLO formed a unity government with Hamas and the loud voice of consensus, the voice of men who imagine that they become god when they speak in a single voice, is that it was the Israeli houses that were to blame. It is not Cain’s fault that he kills. It is Abel’s fault that he builds.

Of the three kidnapped and murdered boys, two Israeli and one American, Jodi Rudoren of the New York Times wrote, “Palestinians… see the very act of attending (school) yeshiva in a West Bank settlement as provocation.”

Abel is forever provoking Cain who rises up and kills him. And if only Abel hadn’t had so many sheep, if only he hadn’t built so well, if only he hadn’t made the desert bloom, if only he hadn’t won so many wars and if only G-d didn’t appear to favor him.

Cain sows fields of corpses of the innocent for the Lord and he still does not understand why his sacrifice is not accepted and why the earth he dwells on is cursed.

Abel does his best to appease Cain with gifts of earth, but the earth is useless to Cain. What good is cursed earth to cursed men? What can a man plant in the desert? What can he harvest when everything dies at his touch? All he can offer is a harvest of death.

That is what he brings to the faintly remembered Creator he calls Allah. From Iraq to Iran, from Kuwait to Saudi Arabia, from Nigeria to Somalia, from Pakistan to Indonesia, he holds up human heads and cries, “Allahu Akbar.”

As if G-d needs such petty proofs of superiority.

Cain cannot be appeased with earth. The earth is his curse. All that lives hates him and he hates all that lives. He tortures animals and raises dead crops. He kills his daughters and sisters, his mother, the source of his life and the source of his future, for the same honor that made Cain the first killer.

There is no use negotiating with Cain.

Thousands of Christians flee ISIS bloodbath in Iraq

by Jim Kouri on Monday, June 30th, 2014

This is article 1196 of 1199 in the topic International

An estimated 10,000 Christian men, women and children from communities in northern Iraq are abandoning their homes and most of their possessions as a result of the violence and killing being perpetrated by the terrorist group Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS), according to Friday’s report by theUnited Nations.

The U.N. High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) reports that a large number of Christian refugees fled to Iraq’s region controlled by the Kurds. It’s estimated that 300,000 Iraqis from Mosul and the nearby towns and villages have sought refuge with the Kurds.

“They fled by bus, car and taxi into Iraq’s northern Kurdistan region [beginning on] Wednesday night,” UNHCR spokesperson Melissa Fleming told reporters in Geneva, Switzerland. “Many are women and children staying with families, relatives and in schools and community centres, mostly in Erbil. They tell us they fled in a big rush, and didn’t bring many belongings with them so that is a sign of how afraid they are.”

So far this year, an estimated 1.2 million Iraqis have been displaced by fighting, including Christians and Shi’ite Muslims from Anbar and Ninewa governorates, according to UNHCR.

In recent weeks Iraq has seen violent armed groups sweep through a number of provinces sending massive numbers of desperate people fleeing for safety.

“The most vulnerable and poorest families have already experienced their share of tragedy over the last few years,” said WFP Executive Director Ertharin Cousin in a press release regarding her time in Iraq

She reported that she has met families who had escaped the bloody violence perpetrated in Mosul by ISIS. She also met with members of the de facto government of Kurdistan.

“Many [Iraqi Christians] are displaced in very harsh conditions. Lack of services, support and insecurity is forcing them to move around – in too many cases making these families difficult to reach,” Cousin stated.

Another law signed by Bill Clinton comes back to bite the Dems?

by Doug Powers on Monday, June 30th, 2014

This is article 59 of 59 in the topic US Supreme Court

nullRecently, Democrats were celebrating the overturning of the Defense of Marriage Act that was enacted in 1996. Bill Clinton congratulated himself for helping lead the recent fight to overturn the law that some guy named Bill Clinton signed.

Fast forward to this morning when the Supreme Court sided with Hobby Lobby. The majority ruled that Hobby Lobby fell under the umbrella of the Religious Freedom Restoration Act. Who signed that bill? Bill! The RFRA was sponsored in the U.S. Senate by some right-wing Republican named Chuck Schumer.

Today could mark the beginning of 21st century Bill Clinton’s latest battle to undo the damage caused by 20th century Bill Clinton. Back to the future!

"Is It Murder Or Suicide?"

by Burt Prelutsky on Saturday, June 28th, 2014

This is article 985 of 986 in the topic Obama

There are times when I suspect that people like Obama, Reid, Pelosi, Schumer, Boxer and Durbin, should have their photos on the wall of the post office as suspects in the killing of America. Other times, I remember that all of these people, along with the likes of Elijah Cummings, Brad Sherman, Henry Waxman, Sheila Jackson Lee and Debbie Wasserman-Schultz, have all been elected numerous times, so perhaps it’s America that’s chosen to commit suicide.

As many of you recall, a doctor named Jack Kevorkian was generally reviled for assisting the terminally ill achieve a painless death. Some people called him a vulture. I was not one of them. It seems to me that if a person chooses to end his pain and suffering by ending his life, he shouldn’t be denied that which we bestow, ironically, on both our beloved pets and the vilest serial killers.

But some of us aren’t yet ready to go, and we certainly aren’t complacent about the homicidal impulses of the so-called Progressives. Everywhere we turn, we see them actively attempting to destroy America. We see them weakening our military, alienating our traditional allies, destroying the economy and erasing our borders. And none of these things are happening accidentally or as the result of unfortunate circumstances.

A friend of mine, Dr. Harry Maller, suggested that because Obama attended Columbia, perhaps he got his agenda from Cloward and Piven, two Columbia professors, rather than from Chicago’s Saul Alinsky. My own guess is that all three of them influenced young Obama.

Those of you who only know the names of Richard Cloward (1926-2001) and his wife, Frances Fox Piven, born in 1932 but still alive, from Glenn Beck might not know that their claim to fame was an article written in 1966, titled “The Weight of the Poor: A Strategy to End Poverty,” that appeared in The Nation. At the time they were both professors at the Columbia University School of Social Work.

Basically, the plan they proposed called for overloading the U.S. welfare system in order to precipitate a crisis that they believed would inevitably lead to replacing it with a guaranteed annual income. As they saw it, the bonus is that it would shore up support for the Democratic Party.

In recent years, we’ve seen signs of this strategy all around us. It is no accident, after all, that there are 48 million Americans now receiving free food through SNAP, that millions more are receiving extended unemployment benefits, that Medicaid is ballooning to the bursting point thanks to the Affordable Care Act, and that disability checks are being mailed out every month to a legion of shameless liars and cheats.

To see the strategy at work before your very eyes, you need only look to the southern border, where every day hundreds of illegal aliens, many of them children, are throwing themselves on the mercy of our welfare system. And the reason they keep coming is because this administration keeps inviting them, and because, like every other previous administration, it refuses to build a wall.

But it’s not the politicians alone who are guilty of this outrage to our sovereignty. They are aided and abetted by the Catholic and Evangelical churches.

Election 2048

by Daniel Greenfield on Thursday, June 26th, 2014

This is article 369 of 369 in the topic Elections

Election Coverage 2048 – Al-CNN

As the election of 2048 approaches, the candidates from both parties continue to exchange strong views on the issues that affect the lives of Americans. The Party of Democracy and Justice (Hezb-Al-Dimukratie-Wa’al Adalah) continues to maintain that the election will come down to social justice issues.

“With 34 percent unemployment and the price of goat so far out of range of most working families that they have been forced to switch to chicken, it is time that our opponents stopped dodging the issues and took a serious look at the economic consequences of their policies,” Bashar Mohammed Hussein Al-Hamdani, said during a campaign stop at a HalalBurger in Peoria, Illinois.

However the ruling Freedom and Religion Party (Hezb Al-Hurriyah Wa’al Allah) denounced this as class warfare. Still preoccupied with the ongoing occupation of the Netherlands and Greece, the party has taken criticism for ignoring the economic problems of the United States while being preoccupied with waging foreign wars in the name of Islam.

Nevertheless President Mohammed Al-Thani, fresh off a pilgrimage from Mecca, vigorously defended his record while conducting a photo op at a San Diego Madrassa. “The Freedom and Religion Party believes in creating opportunities, rather than offering hand outs. Our subjugation of infidel nations has opened up new territories to be dominated by the believers and our vigorous drive for national morality has revived the family unit as an economic force. Our program of heavily fining women who go out with their naked hair exposed and raising the Jizya tax on the People of the Book has also raised billions of dollars that will go toward repaying the nation 93 trillion dollar debt.”

The high Jizya tax has provoked outrage in some parts of the United States, but the continuing decline of the nation’s non-Muslim population has made the Christian vote much less of a factor in the election. Hamdani has promised to cut the Jizya tax by 20 percent if elected, but it is unclear whether conservative elements in his own party will allow him to do it. National surveys show that since making the proposal, Hamdani’s ratings have gone down 9 points in Illinois and 14 points in California.

President Al-Thani’s advisors view the 2 million conversions to Islam since the Jizya tax was tripled as a major benefit to the party which lost its Christian support during the Great Transition. Since then the Freedom and Justice Party has picked up a Christian and Jewish bloc vote, but the value of that bloc has not held up well over the last two elections.

Christian rights activists attribute the decline of American Christians to the Jizya tax which has made it impossible for many Christian families to earn a living. They also blame the bloody 2045 Riots which marked the end of the Christian presence in former strongholds such as Nashville and Cedar Rapids, as well as rumors about the kidnapping and forced conversion of Christian girls.

However popular talk show host and pundit, Abdul Greene countered that the decrease was best explained by the large scale immigration of Christians out of the country. “The Christians are too bigoted to live in the same country with us, just like their parents and grandparents.

48 Christians slaughtered by Islamists in Obama’s ancestral home while he golfed

by Jim Kouri on Wednesday, June 18th, 2014

This is article 770 of 773 in the topic Terrorism

Muslim terrorists attacked and took control of Kenya’s seaside town of Mpeketoni on Sunday night, slaughtering Kenyan Christians in a brutal rampage. Meanwhile, President Barack Obama arrived in Palm Springs, California on Saturday via Air Force One to spend Sunday, Father’s Day, playing golf not discussing the terror being inflicted on his ancestral homeland.

Kenya’s top police chief, Dave Kimaiyo, told reporters that so far 48 died and dozens were wounded by the jihadists. The attackers are believed to be members of the al-Qaida-affiliate Al-Shabaab. The Somalia-based Islamist group has increased their violent attacks in an effort to get Kenya and other African countries to remove their troops sent to help the weak and corrupt Somali government.

Kenya’s Minister of Interior, Joseph Lenku, claims that the Islamists fought a fierce battle with Kenyan police and security forces.

During the weekend in which Iraq cities are falling to radical Sunni Muslims, Nigeria continues to battle Boko Haram, who still hold a number of Nigerian female children, Yemen continues to suffer terrorist attacks including bombings, Obama focused a university graduation commencement speech – given prior to his golf outing — on the threat of climate change and, according to his critics, continued his “Chris Rock” impersonation by mocking those who disagree with him.

“This president is facing a Middle East and North Africa exploding before our eyes, yet he’s taking shots at his political opponents and pushing his leftist agenda,” said former intelligence operative and police official Sid Franes.

“President Obama reportedly avoids discussing his family members in Kenya because of their Muslim background and their Islamic activism,” said Franes.

According to journalist and author Jerome Corsi, Barack Obama’s half-brother, Malik Obama, attended an Islamic Da’wa Organization conference in Khartoum, Sudan in 2010. A major goal for IDO’s memberhip is the exporting of the Saudi Arabian form of radical Islam known as Wahhabist Islam throughout Africa.

Sudan President Omar Al-Bashir, who supervised the IDO conference and is wanted by the International Criminal Court for crimes against humanity, was said to be friendly with Malik Obama.

Muslimsplaining Islamic Terrorism Away

by Daniel Greenfield on Thursday, June 5th, 2014

This is article 767 of 773 in the topic Terrorism

As bloody bodies and smoke rise into the air after a cry of Allahu Akbar and a bomb detonation, each Muslim terrorist attack is followed by “Muslimsplaining” why the latest act of Islamic violence had nothing to do with Islam.

Sometimes the Muslimsplainers are Muslims. Often they aren’t even Muslims.

When Boko Haram, an Islamic terrorist group aligned with Al Qaeda, kidnapped Nigerian girls, the media’s Muslimsplainers sprang into action to explain why it had nothing to do with Islam.

Time featured “5 Reasons Boko Haram is Un-Islamic”; a listicle friendly article from one of those non-Muslim experts on why Islam is feminist .

“With their sustained campaign of murders and kidnappings, the members of Boko Haram conduct themselves in a manner that could barely be more alien to the Prophet Muhammad teachings,” the article claimed. Mohammed spread Islam through a sustained campaign of murders and kidnappings. Claiming that murder was alien to Mohammed is like claiming that pledge drives are alien to PBS.

As proof, Time cited a statement from Saudi Arabia’s grand mufti, Sheikh Abdulaziz al-Sheikh that Boko Haram was “set up to smear the image of Islam.”

This is the same Sheikh al-Sheikh who called for destroying all the churches in the region and  marrying off 10-year-old girls. Destroying churches and raping schoolgirls is exactly what Boko Haram stands for. If you believe the media, the same grand mufti who supports raping children in Saudi Arabia as Islamic… opposes raping them in Nigeria as un-Islamic.

Either the Sheikh places a higher value on Nigerian girls than Saudi girls or like Mohammed, he considers all women “deficient in intelligence and religion”, “harmful to men” and destined for hell.

The only reason the double Sheikh who speaks out of both sides of his mouth denounces Boko Haram and other Al Qaeda groups is because he is a mouthpiece for the Saudi ruling family which opposes them.

Saudi Arabia isn’t opposed to Al Qaeda because it’s un-Islamic. It’s opposed to Al Qaeda because the Islamic group wants to replace the House of Saud, upsetting the deal between Wahhab and Saud that created a balance between the tyrannical royal family and the mosque.

Saudi Arabia and its mouthpieces don’t oppose Al Qaeda because it’s un-Islamic. They oppose it because it’s too Islamic for them.
Muslimsplaining by non-Muslims is dishonest. Time claims that Mohammed opposed harming women and other non-combatants when he and his men enslaved and raped captured women. It claims that Islam opposes forcibly marrying off underage girls, when Mohammed married an underage girl and the very Muslim religious leader quoted by Time in its introduction supports it.

Time claims that Boko Haram’s war against Christians is un-Islamic and yet the Saudi grand mufti it cites who called for the destruction of Christian churches based his demand on Mohammed’s deathbed statement, “Two religions shall not co-exist in the Arabian Peninsula.”

If we are to believe Time, not only is Boko Haram un-Islamic but so is the Grand Mufti of Saudi Arabia that Time quoted to prove Boko Haram is un-Islamic.

And so is Mohammed, the Prophet of Islam.

If Mohammed is un-Islamic because he raped girls, enslaved women and murdered religious minorities in a campaign of violence and slavery… is there even an Islam?

Obama views on Muslim terrorism fly in the face of reality: Report

by Jim Kouri on Thursday, June 5th, 2014

This is article 766 of 773 in the topic Terrorism

Despite President Barack Obama and his minions claiming the strength of the world’s radical Islamist network is waning and the threat to the United States minimal, astudy released on Wednesday by a well-respected and highly-regarded think-tank contradicts what many call Obama’s myopic view of the terrorist threat to the United States, the American people, and U.S. interests throughout the world, according to Joel Kaplan, a former members of a police special operations team.

The RAND Corporation study suggests that the threat of Islamic terrorism isn’t waning at all, but appears to be growing by leaps-and-bounds. A rising number of Salifi-jihadist groups (Islamists) is a growing terrorist threat to the United States when one considers the lack of border security and screening of immigrants — legal and illegal — by the U.S. government.

In last four years — 2010-2014 — the world has experienced a 58 percent increase in the number of Islamist terror groups, with the number of Muslim terrorists doubling and the number of al-Qaida affiliates has actually tripled.

The biggest jihadist threat to the U.S. homeland, the report alleges, comes from terrorist organizations currently creating havoc in countries such as Yemen, Syria, Afghanistan and Pakistan. In fact, a recent Examiner news story suggests that the Syrian rebellion has become a training ground for homegrown terrorists from Western nations such as Great Britain.

According to theHomeland Security News Wire, one of the reasons for the increase in groups, fighters, and attacks is the widely-known weakness of governments across North Africa and the Middle East. Weak governments have difficulty establishing law and order, which allows militant groups and other sub-state actors to fill the vacuum.

The Rand Corporation study cautions U.S. decision-makers, especially the Commander in Chief Barack Obama, that the trends described in the study suggest the U.S. law enforcement and security communities must remain focused on countering the activities of the Islamist groups. The report also strongly suggests that Islamic terrorism is enjoying a resurgence especially in North Africa and the Middle East.

The report specifically cautions the United States (Barack Obama) to resist his temptations to turn his attention and resources away from the Middle East and towards the Asia-Pacific region as part of his “rebalancing strategy.”

“Based on these threats, the United States cannot afford to withdraw or remain disengaged from key parts of North Africa, the Middle East and South Asia,” said Seth Jones,author of the study and associate director of the International Security and Defense Policy Center at RAND, a nonprofit research organization. “After more than a decade of war in Afghanistan and Iraq, it may be tempting for the U.S. to turn its attention elsewhere and scale back on counterterrorism efforts. But this research indicates that the struggle is far from over.”

Faithfulness is the key to restoring America

by Lloyd Marcus on Thursday, June 5th, 2014

This is article 239 of 240 in the topic Religion

I shot the music video for my song, “We Are Americans.” Between takes while the director was setting up a different camera angle, I was on my mark on the set. I thought, “Wow, can you believe this?” For over a year, I have been seeking the right production company and funding to produce this video. Suddenly, I have a talented director shooting my music video at no expense. Praise God!

A production company approached me about having my own TV show; the premiere show is coming soon.

For seven years, I have been trying to build a new $30 million dollar arts and performance center in my small town, stifled by Democrat city commissioners who hate me because of my Tea Party involvement. We are not seeking funding from the city, merely their support (permits and etc). As you can imagine, many times over the past seven years, I thought my project was dead. Suddenly, the city is open to working with us.

Just as God sent Solomon knowledgeable men to help him build the temple, I have a master developer with 50 years of experience, architects, engineers, attorneys and environmental experts on my team; not costing me a dime.

After years of seeming to have to struggle for every move forward, suddenly, things are falling into place without me pressing to make it happen.

What has brought me such favor and good fortune? The answer is faithfulness. I did not have a brilliant master plan for success. Year after year, I simply did whatever God put in front of me to do; no matter how big or how small. With maximum preparedness and effort, I walk through each door that “God” opens for me.

Brother and sister patriots, this is how we take back America from this tyrannous monster government that is devouring our God-given freedom and liberty. Faithfulness is how we push back the infectious evil pandemic cultural rot carried by this Administration infecting our land; particularly the minds of our children.

Regardless of how hopeless and dark things may appear, regardless of how much the Democrats and mainstream media pound on their chest in celebration of the death of the Tea Party, we MUST remain faithful; continue storming the walls of the Obama regime.

Come hell or high water, we patriots MUST remain faithful. Keep blogging. Keep writing books. Keep rallying. Keep training conservative candidates. Keep teaching classes on the Constitution. Keep saying, “No!” to political correctness. Keep praying. Keep working to elect conservatives. Keep educating low-info voters to the truth. Keep politically pushing back against the bullying and tyranny of Obama via his political thug henchmen (IRS, DOJ, NSA and etc).

When we are faithful, God is faithful to bless what we do.

Founding Father, Samuel Adams said it best. “It does not take a majority to prevail…but rather an irate, tireless minority, keen on setting brushfires of freedom in the minds of men.”

We must remain responsibly “irate”; not passively accepting our president acting like a king, tyranny and government bullying us as the new normal.

Patriots, I realize that sometimes you may be weary and discouraged. Please believe me when I say that faithfulness is the key.

Islam’s Long History of Intolerance and Violence

by Alan Caruba on Friday, May 30th, 2014

This is article 1 of 1 in the topic Islam

I keep wondering why, here in the United States where three thousand died in a 2001 attack on the Twin Towers by terrorists affiliated with al Qaeda, we continue to be told that we must exercise sensitivity and tolerance for a “religion”, Islam, that worldwide is perpetrating not just violence, but a concerted attack on morality in general and Western civilization in particular.

There are more than a billion Muslims worldwide and surely many of them are personally opposed to what is being done in their name. Unfortunately, Islam has a long history of the violence being perpetrated and the general silence of Muslims must be interpreted as consent or the fear of speaking out. By contrast, anywhere anything is said, written or done that offends Muslims brings cries of outrage and demands for apologies.

Throughout the Middle East, in Africa, in Europe, Russia, India and China, just in recent times the evidence of the Islamic war on the right of non-Muslims to practice their faith is everywhere.

One of the leading authorities on Islam and the author of several books is Ali Sina. In “Understanding Muhammad and Muslims”, Sina bluntly says “The Islamic world is sick. It would be shortsighted to deny that the cause of this sickness is Islam. Almost every crime, every abuse and inhumanity perpetrated by Muslims is inspired by examples set by Muhammad and justified through his words and deeds. This is the inconvenient truth that sadly, so many would rather not talk about.”

In the West we ask how Boko Haram, an Islamist group now famed for kidnapping more than 250 Christian girls attending a school in Nigeria and forcibly converting them to Islam, can do such a crime, but in September it had shot 40 students in their sleep at a Nigerian college and within a week of the kidnapping had set off car bombs that killed at least 118 people in the Nigerian city of Jos. Unable to protect its own people, Nigeria needs an international task force to hunt down Boko Haram and destroy it.

We also must ask why it took so long for our State Department to list Boko Haram as a Foreign Terrorist Organization, adding them to the long list that already exists. As Daniel Henninger noted in a May 22 Wall Street Journal commentary, despite the fact that both the Justice Department and the CIA wanted the group added to the list, “State decided not to designate Boko Haram arguing other tactics were available” to deal with them. Henniger warned that “In matters of national security, the U.S. government “has become hopelessly bureaucratized and the public debate about it (radical Islam) hopelessly intellectualized.”

The U.S. government has been led by a President who made it clear that he was opposed to any criticism of Islam. Among his early promises was to close down Guantanamo and the term, “war on terror”, disappeared as one of the government’s goals. It was replaced by surgical attacks such as the one that killed Osama bin Laden and other al Qaeda leaders. It has not, however, slowed the expansion of al Qaeda or other Islamist groups.
