Bedside Confession

While a man was dying, his wife was maintaining a candlelight vigil by his side.

She held his fragile hand, tears running down her face.

Her praying woke him from his slumber.

He looked up, and his pale lips began to move slightly.

“My darling,” he whispered.”Hush, my love,” she said.

“Rest, don’t talk.”

He was insistent.

“I have something that I must confess,” he said in a tired voice.

“There isn’t anything to confess,” replied his weeping wife. “Everything’s ok. Go to sleep.”

The man blurted out: “No, no, I must die in peace. I…I slept with your sister, your best friend, her best friend, and your mother!”

“I know,” whispered his wife, “that’s why I poisoned you.”

The Breakneck Islamization of Turkey’s Education System

Quote

Turkey’s Directorate of Religious Affairs (Diyanet) is set to receive an additional two billion liras (around $350 million), boosting its budget from last year’s 8.3 billion liras ($1.5 billion) to 10.4 billion ($1.8 billion) liras for 2019, according to the newspaper Cumhuriyet. This increase in budget surpasses that of 29 other major state institutions, including the ministries of the interior and foreign affairs.

The Diyanet, the state body regulating the role of Islam in Turkey, apparently has, as one of its main missions, transforming the country’s education system. It is now fully engaged in shaping school curricula.

After the minimum age for Quran studies in Turkey was abolished in 2011, a project named “Pre-school religious education through Quran classes,” implemented by the Diyanet, was piloted in ten cities across the country in 2013. The project teaches the Quran and “basic Islamic information” to children between the ages of four and six. In 2015, the Diyanet decided to expand to program to “all places where physical conditions are suitable.” Since then, the number of “pre-school Koran classes” has continued to rise. It has increased to 150,000 students in five years.

270 Disabled Guatemalan Kids Get Wheelchairs From Israel

Quote

“The smile of the children who received the chairs will reflect the friendship and brotherhood between our peoples,” said President of Guatemala Jimmy Morales as 270 colorful child-friendly wheelchairs were distributed to disabled children in a ceremony at the Israeli Embassy in Guatemala.

The inexpensive, durable, low-maintenance Wheelchairs of Hope were conceptualized by Israeli plastics-industry veterans Pablo Kaplan and Chava Rotshtein as a humanitarian mission to enable young children with disabilities in developing countries to attend school.

Thousands of the wheelchairs have been provided in the past few years to children in 17 developing countries including Nepal, Peru, Vietnam, Ethiopia, Colombia, South Africa, Ukraine, Israel, the Palestinian Authority and more through their nonprofit organization, with funding from the Israeli Ministry of Foreign Affairs’ MASHAV Agency for International Development Cooperation.

Turkey’s religious affairs top dog: Important area of cooperation with Europe is efforts to eliminate Islamophobia

Quote

If Ali Erbaş really wants to end “Islamophobia,” here is how he and his fellow Muslims could accomplish it. They could call upon Muslim individuals and groups to:

1. Focus their indignation on Muslims committing violent acts in the name of Islam, not on non-Muslims reporting on those acts.
2. Renounce definitively, sincerely, honestly, and in deeds, not just in comforting words, not just “terrorism,” but any intention to replace Western constitutions (or the constitutions of any non-Muslim state) with Sharia even by peaceful means. In line with this, clarify what is meant by their condemnations of the killing of innocent people by stating unequivocally that non-Muslim civilians, including Israelis, are innocent people, teaching accordingly in mosques and Islamic schools, and behaving in accord with these new teachings.
3. Teach, again sincerely and honestly, in transparent and verifiable ways in mosques and Islamic schools, the imperative of Muslims coexisting peacefully as equals with non-Muslims on an indefinite basis, and act accordingly.
4. Begin comprehensive international programs in mosques all over the world to teach sincerely, and again transparently, against the ideas of violent jihad and Islamic supremacism.
5. Actively and honestly work with Western law enforcement officials to identify and apprehend jihadists within Western Muslim communities.

The Gaza related protest the BBC ignored

BBC Watch

Since the BBC began reporting on the ‘Great Return March’ violent rioting over seven months ago, BBC audiences have seen the grand total of one minute and twenty seconds of coverage reflecting the point of view of residents of the Israeli communities close to the Gaza Strip-Israel border who are affected by the violence.

A two and a half minute BBC News video on a story ignored for three months

That July 12th interview with one kibbutz spokesperson related solely to the subject of the arson attacks perpetrated by the Gaza Strip rioters and did not address additional issues such as the severe air pollution caused by months of tyre burning along the border or the rocket and mortar attacks on Israeli civilian communities.

Rocket and mortar attacks have of course not been limited to the past seven months: they commenced in 2001 and their numbers rose following Israel’s disengagement…

Trump Proves to be a Racist

Beyond the Cusp

President Trump has a history of racism, or at least specism, one who gives preferences by species. He is also probably a number of other things in biology all leading to the realization that Trump has a definitive preference for mammalian creatures with a strong preference for the felines, canines and sapiens. We hope this does not surprise anyone too deeply, but apparently President Trump is very much alike so many of the rest of us. The difference, he often has an ability to act on his preferences in a large way. We have related this before, but it is worth repeating here as well. When Trump, long before he was elected or even had any thought of running for public office, which probably explains some of the not so intelligent things which people who plan on running for public office would risk doing, showed that he liked human beings…

Merkel faces party revolt over UN migration pact

Quote

Last January, UN Secretary General António Guterres unveiled his plan to promote mass migration into Europe. He made the claim that “mass migration powers economic growth, reduces inequalities and connects diverse societies.”

The UN Migration Pact is touted as a solution to the migration crisis, but the agenda remains the same: the globalist aim to implement a utopian vision that migrants will assimilate and compensate for the low birthrates of Western countries. This irrational vision not only divides the EU, but also the Americas. Canada plans to “lead the charge,” while Trump has withdrawn from the Pact. And in Europe, Poland and Hungary have also left, and the EU is now slamming Austria for exiting. The Czech Republic is preparing to withdraw its support also, and now in Germany, “Angela Merkel is facing a revolt within her Christian Democratic Union as prominent members begin to oppose the UN migration pact.”

Merkel is set to step down in a few years. “One of the most prominent critics of the UN migration pact within the CDU has been Federal Minister of Health Jens Spahn, a conservative leader within the party who has put himself forward as a successor” to Merkel. Spahn, unlike Merkel, has prioritized the sovereignty of Germany and seeks to put limitations on migration. But in the meantime, Germany still faces the problems of the massive numbers of Muslim migrants that Merkel has admitted, as well as the hundreds of thousands of migrants of which it has lost track.
