U.S. State Dept. Bars Christians from Testifying about Persecution

“This is an administration which never seems to find a good enough excuse to help Christians, but always finds an excuse to apologize for terrorists … I hope that as it gets attention that Secretary Kerry will reverse it. If he doesn’t, Congress has to investigate, and the person who made this decision ought to be fired” — Newt Gingrich, former Speaker, U.S. House of Representatives.

“The U.S. insists that Muslims are the primary victims of Boko Haram… The question remains — why is the U.S. downplaying or denying the attacks against Christians?” — Emmanuel Ogebe, Nigerian human rights lawyer, Washington D.C.


Michael Chabon’s Short Fiction, ‘Switzerland Today’

In the summer of 1974 my parents sent me to live with my grandparents.

My mother’s parents lived in a modest, one-story house in Silver Spring. It was a nondescript little box, half-heartedly Colonial, with a pointed cupola and black shutters that could never be shut. The driveway was stained, the front walk cracked, and the black weathervane atop the cupola listed to one side like the mast of a foundering ship.

I was given the room, at the back of the house, that had belonged to my mother’s late brother, my Uncle Charles, from whom I was generally said to have inherited all of the undesirable qualities and behaviors that had led to my banishment from home. Uncle Charles’s room was smaller than my bedroom, but I would not be obliged to share it, as I had done at home with my sister Laura from her birth until the previous spring.


UK: Muslim schools accused of “anti-Christian chanting”

That’s not “anti-Christian chanting,” that’s Islamic prayer. The Brits have laid down, surrendered without so much as a shot fired. After little was done after the blockbuster revelations came about “Operation Trojan Horse,” did anyone think that the Brits would do anything except flap their fleshy tongues? “Operation Trojan Horse,” an Islamic conspiracy to take over a number of public schools and make them adhere to Islamic principles, rocked the United Kingdom. There was outcry! Sturm and drang! Finger-pointing! And promises of a massive overhaul, but like the epidemic of Muslim child sex trafficking gangs, little came of it. If the Brits wouldn’t save their own daughters and sisters (the mothers of the next generation, the future of their nation), it’s fair to say they are doomed. They have lost their soul and their will to freedom. MORE…

Iran Worked with Al Qaeda, Docs from Raid on Bin Laden Compound Show: “evidence is so explosive that it could derail the nuclear deal with Iran”

Further proof that we should have gone into Iran post 9/11. Why is the USG protecting our worst enemies? We are betrayed at the highest levels — it’s astonishing. Iran has been at war with the us since its Islamic takeover in 1979.

“What Congress should demand is to see all the UBL [Osama bin Laden] documents related to Iran and all the documents related to intentions of AQ into the future—they are very telling.”

As for the al Qaeda link, Obama say, “give ’em nukes.”


What the Terrorists Took: By a Fourteen-Year-Old Tunisian Girl

You can write a ton of articles about terrorism attacks but you can never feel it. You will not be able walk with your friend during lunch break without turning around to see if someone is following you. You will not feel comfortable around a bearded man. You want to wake up in the morning without being worried that someone will attack you. You are not witnessing the destruction of your country.


Iran’s Prison Archipelago

Iran’s negotiations with the P5+1 powers are narrowly defined to include only the Islamic Republic’s nuclear program. However, Tehran’s abysmal record on human rights should reveal to the world what to expect by way of compliance on any nuclear deal.

In facilities under their control, both the IRGC and the MOIS are permitted to execute prisoners without trial or effectively any judicial proceeding.

Iran will also have permission to import or develop Intercontinental Ballistic Missiles (ICBMs) with the ability to deliver a nuclear weapon to other continents, including to the United States.
