Minorities have no choice in Pakistan


Intro to ‘Minorities have no choice in Pakistan’

Shamim writes about Pakistani minorities being persecuted by the majority Sunni Muslims. That persecution is executed with mercilessly robbing, beating, raping, damaging property, damaging Churches, damaging religious centers and artifacts other religious minorities which includes loss of life. Of course Shamim writes from a Christian perspective but he includes other religious minorities because in Pakistan they are the recipients of the same vicious hate as Christians from Sunni Muslims. Shamim insinuates a sense of abandonment from the Western World specifically mentioning Americans and Jews.

 

As Americans go I have to disagree. American citizens are the largest givers of foreign charity in the world. As to Shamim’s disappointment of Jews providing aid to Pakistani-Christians or any Pakistani-Religious minority for that matter, may rest on one historical fact. Jews have faced thousands of years of persecution being ejected from their homeland twice. In this present age the Muslim world begrudges Jews living on their God-Promised land even that land is extremely miniscule in the 21st century. Any enlargement of Israeli territory since 1948 has come due to existential wars guided by Muslim nations and Muslim terrorists intent on destroying the Jewish homeland for a third time and executing a Jewish genocide if such an ungodly destruction of Israel occurs. Because of a history of Christian and Muslim degradation of Jews over the last few centuries there is little affinity for Jews to invest in persecuted Christians or other minorities that have expressed antisemitism toward Jews in general. Despite the years of persecution from non-Jews, Jews – particularly American Jews – are remarkable givers to non-Jewish charities. As far as that goes to Pakistan, I have no idea. My first inkling is that Jews are more giving to alleviate natural disasters than to overcome non-Jewish socio-religious issues.

 

Nevertheless, Shamim is correct to be disappointed. The American media is nearly absent on reporting the plight of Pakistani Christians. The American media would do a great service for American givers if the illegitimate Pakistan Christian leaders (i.e. the corrupt and money grubbing) were exposed while highlighting Pakistani Christian leadership doing actual social and civil rights work among the exploited, abused and often violently murdered poverty stricken Christians.

 

As such Shamim Masih is one of those legitimate Christian civil rights leaders. There is some donation information for his very dangerous work in an environment in which the hatred of Christians is pervasive at end of Shamim’s report below.

Minorities have no choice in Pakistan

ISLAMABAD: Sitting on the top roof of the four stories building in the capital, a man roared that if you uttered a single word from your mouth I will send you directly into hell. There were four people from three different faiths, Sunni, Shia and a Christian. It can happen only in Pakistan that Sunni Muslims can use rough language about others but they are not ready to listen against themselves, because they are in power. Religion should not be the state’s business; I am sorry, but it’s clear that your religion is not your personal matter. It is the matter for all of us to interfere in, as and when we feel necessary or find a choice.

   

The recent attack on the Sikh community of Peshawar {Times of India] and on an Ahmadi community in Gujranwala [WSJ] has given out a clear message to minorities that Pakistan is not for them. Harjeet Singh, 30, was present in his grocery shop in Nothia Bazar of Peshawar, when two unknown assailants on a motorcycle opened fired on him and killed him on the spot [The Nation].

 

It’s a clear message to all minorities that they don’t have the right to practice their religion or sect nor to run their business for their living. If you did so, you better [be] ready for an army of so called preachers deliberately enforcing a religious polemic argument on you. It makes no difference, how patriotic you feel for Pakistan, you will always stay an American or Zionist agent. Although it is fact, Americans or Jews least bother about Pakistani Christians. The Taliban have already given warnings to the people of Chitral valley (heretics) to either convert to Islam or be ready to die [The Frontier Post & Dawn.com]. A few months back, three Hindu temples were desecrated in Mir Pur Khas district [Central Asia Online &.Pakistan Times] Earlier this year, in Larkana, the heart of Pakistan Peoples Party, a mob looted a Hindu temple before setting it ablaze [Hindu Human Rights & The Hindu]. After the attack on Peshawar Church last year, the Taliban made it quite clear that the attacks were exactly according to Sharia. Religious extremists looted the houses in Joseph Colony [in] Lahore before setting it ablaze. Asia Bibi, Sawan Masih and [the] Christian couple (Shagufta Bibi and Shafqat Emmanuel) in Gojra are sentenced to death. And all it started with Christians allegedly framed in a blasphemy case [For Pakistan].

The killing of [a] Christian family in Gojra including small kids and burning the 100 years old church in Mardan were some chilling events that can’t be forgotten. Even, the sizable Shia community faces the same fate as other minorities do. Shias are killed on regular basis in the country. People are pulled down from the buses, identified and they are mercilessly massacred.

 

It’s again pathetic when we see that neither Pakistani Christian organizations like CLAAS and so on nor the international community step forward to protect Christian rights. Some so called social activists are active for their vested interests in the name of protecting Pakistani Christians.  Sorry to say,Pakistan drainage system at slums but this is not a country for minorities, you better leave. But how come, it is possible [for] neither European nor other Christian countries to welcome Pakistani Christians? We are left here to suffer and suffer no bright future for children [due to the] stiff environment around.  

 

Be Blessed,

Shamim Masih

Antisemitism of Middle Eastern Christians


 

John R. Houk

© September 15, 2014

 

Senator Ted Cruz was the keynote speaker at the In Defense of Christians (IDC) summit held in Washington DC on September 10 of 2014. The IDC summit was a bit historical due to the attendance of some Eastern Rite clergy leaders that do not always see eye to eye on matters of theology. In order to make a long story summarized Senator Cruz not only stood with the solidarity for the plight of Christian genocide executed by ISIS but made a stand for Israel as a friend for Christians in the Middle East. This didn’t go over so well with the Eastern Rite Christians visiting the summit away from their homelands in the Middle East.

 

So at this point it might be a good idea to look at the IDC Awareness and Advocacy page to see what they are about:

 

Awareness and advocacy are the two fundamental components of IDC’s work. Awareness is broadly focused on bringing attention in the United States and the western world to the plight of the ancient Christian communities of the Middle East. Advocacy is narrowly focused on the U.S. foreign policy community, influencing policymakers to promote values abroad that are consistent with the universal human rights of religion and conscience.

 

These values are not exclusively Christian, nor does IDC seek only to protect the human rights of Christians, but all religious groups. These rights are universal, applicable to all human persons. In this sense, “Christian” refers not only those who confess the Christian faith, but also Muslim, Jew, Hindu, Buddhist, Baha’i, and even the freedom to confess no religious belief at all.

 

IDC believes that America’s foreign policy apparatus, especially the State Department, too often projects indifference on the question of persecuted religious minorities in the region, especially Christians – a policy that only invites further violence.   In some instances, the U.S. government even provides significant foreign aid to regimes that persecute Christians, as with Pakistan and now Egypt.  With a vigorous and sustained public awareness and advocacy campaign, IDC believes this can change.

 

So to be clear, the IDC peers through the eyes of a diverse Christian perspective that is inclusive of the civil rights of other religious faiths. As one of those kind-of-guys that Christ is the only way to God I may have a bit of a problem of the inclusiveness of other faiths, especially Islam. I don’t have a problem with diversity within Christianity as long as long as those diverse sects, Denominations and Rites follow the basics of Christian faith, viz. Jesus was crucified, died on the Cross, was in the grave for three day and arose in Resurrection to Redeem humanity from this wicked world. As well as include that Jesus Christ is the one and only (First Begotten) Son of God and devoted to the mystery of the Trilogy – Father, Son and Holy Spirit are three persons consisted simultaneously in ONE God. All the other theological mumbo jumbo – in my humble opinion – will not affect one’s Salvation.

 

On the other hand it is a righteous thing to defend the civil rights of a persecuted people. If Muslims, Jews, Hindus, Buddhists, Baha’is or other religious people are being singled out for violence and/or extermination; it is a Christian godly move to denounce the persecutors for heinous acts. Nevertheless I am suspicious of Christians that water down their faith to be inclusive rather than respectful of religious faiths.

 

And just for clarity’s sake I nearly always give a pass to Jews that are suspicious and critical Christian motives. Jews have been the recipients of heinous persecution for thousands of years. NONETHELESS, I refuse to denounce Jews or Judaism for its insularism or it dislike for outsiders for one primary reason: Salvation is of the Jews.

 

I realize this is a reprehensible thought among Jews but I believe Jesus Christ is as much the Messiah to Jews as he is to non-Jews. I believe it was a part of the God’s plan for the Redemption of all humanity through Jesus who was born as a sinless man to provide the remittance price that brings humanity back to God Almighty. I believe because of the Abrahamic Covenant Jesus the Messiah was born a Jew and ministered the Good News of His coming to the Jews  because as the Apostle Paul says, “To the Jews first and then the Gentiles.”

 

From the Christian perspective here is a summary that fits my belief that Israel is a Promise of God to the Jews and eventually the Jews will recognize Christ as their Messiah:

 

From the first human beings God created and placed in the Garden of Eden, to the very last person born on this earth, our gracious God has offered salvation to sinners on the basis of faith in the promised “seed,” Jesus Christ. Before Messiah’s birth, Old Testament saints admitted their sin and trusted in the “seed” who was to come, and they were saved. Adam and Eve were given the promise of deliverance through their “seed” (Genesis 3:15), and they believed (see Genesis 4:25-26). So it was with Abraham as well:

 

After these things the word of the Lord came to Abram in a vision, saying, “Do not fear, Abram, I am a shield to you; your reward shall be very great.” And Abram said, “O Lord God, what wilt Thou give me, since I am childless, and the heir of my house is Eliezer of Damascus?” And Abram said, “Since Thou hast given no offspring to me, one born in my house is my heir.” Then behold, the word of the Lord came to him, saying, “This man will not be your heir; but one who shall come forth from your own body, he shall be your heir.” And He took him outside and said, “Now look toward the heavens, and count the stars, if you are able to count them.” And He said to him, “So shall your descendants be.” Then he believed in the Lord; and He reckoned it to him as righteousness (Genesis 15:1-6).

 

Jesus answered, “If I glorify Myself, My glory is nothing; it is My Father who glorifies Me, of whom you say, ‘He is our God’; and you have not come to know Him, but I know Him; and if I say that I do not know Him, I shall be a liar like you, but I do know Him, and keep His word. Your father Abraham rejoiced to see My day, and he saw it and was glad.” The Jews therefore said to Him, “You are not yet fifty years old, and have You seen Abraham?” Jesus said to them, “Truly, truly, I say to you, before Abraham was born, I am” (John 8:54-58). THE ENTIRE ESSAY IS ILLUMINATING – READ IT (The Promised Seed: The Source of Blessing in God’s Perfect Plan; By Bob Deffinbaugh; Bible.org; 5/17/04)

 

So I am a Jesus-is-the-only-way kind of guy and all the Promises to the Jews from God are still effective and one day the Jews as a religious people will recognize Jesus Christ as their Messiah. I will never condemn Jews with idiotic conspiracy theories and the Promise of Land is a restoration miracle that shows the time of Jesus Christ’s return is closer in time than any other time in history.

 

Now in affirming my faith in Christ and God’s Promises to the Jews I do get a bit disturbed when I read of Christians that are antisemitic. AND I am disturbed that there are still Christians out there that place blame on Jews for crucifying Christ. This is idiotic considering Christ’s death, burial and Resurrection is what brings Salvation to those who believe in the Redemptive act of the Lord Jesus Christ. How moronic is it to hate Jews or Roman Gentiles for that matter for killing Christ when the Lord’s death was a necessary sacrifice to transfer humanity out of the dominion of Satan and into the Kingdom of the Father’s dear Son?

 

Since the days of Islamic conquest of the Christian lands of the Middle East that were formerly a part of the Christian Roman Empire, Muslim brutality slowly shrank the Christian majority making the faithful a minority in their own land. Even in seasons of tolerance Christians and Jews were required to submit to the rules of Islam. This meant an absolute acceptance of Islamic Supremacist Sharia Law. Part of Sharia was to enforce rules regarding non-Muslims living under Islamic rule. This meant the rules which can be anglicized as dhimmitude based and later expanded upon the so-called Pact of Umar:

 

The so-called “pact of Umar” is of uncertain authorship and exists in various versions. It is a document that regulates the behavior of Christians and Jews in Muslim lands, Supposedly, it was supposedly originally given by the Caliph Umar ibn al Khatib as a treaty to the patriarch of Jerusalem, Sophronias. but in actual fact it is a reflection of customs that had evolved in the lands conquered by the Muslims under Umar bin Aziz and later caliphs. The document illustrates the position of Christians, Jews, Zoroastrians and some others in Muslim society: they were “protected,” provided that they “knew their place.”

 

 

However, though it is probable that the document itself is an impostor, like the forged “Donation of Constantine,” it is important because it was accepted as genuine. It was used as the basis and justification for enforcing the “Dhimmi laws.” These supposedly guaranteed fair treatment of non-Muslims, actually guaranteed that they would always be singled out in society as second class citizens, and were an invitation to persecution by unscrupulous rulers. The creation of this pact myth allowed rulers to claim that Jews and Christians had “violated the pact” if they dared to dress like Muslims or speak like Muslims, or worship too close to Muslims or violate any other provision of the “pact.” It was also used to justify suppression of Synagogues and Churches that were built or renovated after the Muslim conquest. Whenever Muslim rulers clamped down on non-Muslims and whenever anti-Semites and anti-Christian elements wanted to raise the ire of the masses against the non-Muslims, they referred to this “pact.” For example, the 1354 Decree against the Dhimmi of Al Malik al Salih refers specifically to the pact of Umar and must have had in mind a document similar to the one below, since it mentions wearing of the Zunar and other provisions that noted in this document.

 

A different and more lenient version of the pact is given as the Covenant of Umar. That version is more specific in its assertion that the pact was given in Jerusalem and really reads as though it was given by Umar to the Jews and Christians of Jerusalem. However, that is not the pact that was referred to in later restatements of the Dhimmi laws.

Now I realized I utilized a lot of page space on this Pact of Umar but I want readers to understand that once Christians were conquered by Muslim armies they did not have a quaint existence as a vanquished people. Indeed many Eastern Rite Christians initially welcomed Muslim conquest due to the theological differences from the then ruling Byzantines who had made the Eastern Orthodox of the Greek Eastern rite the State Church.

 

I thought about trying to list the Eastern Rite Churches that separate from the Greek-Eastern Orthodox Rite but I have discovered that may be a bit daunting since after Muslim conquest these Churches have continued to evolve theologically with on and off again unions and disunions amongst themselves which included some associations with the Roman Catholic rite along the way right up to the present day.

 

As far as Islam goes and current events the various Assyrian Churches of present day Iraq and Syria is one region, the Lebanese Maronite Church and the Coptic Church which represents 10% of the Egyptian population have been making the news of Muslim persecution lately. Pakistan’s Christian minority has also been affected by Muslim persecution as well but have not made the news much in the USA.

 

The IDC Summit that took place in Washington DC was concerned largely of the persecution and genocide taking place under ISIS controlled portions of Iraq and Syria. If you want to sort out some these Eastern Rite churches affected on your own you can wade through the Wikipedia articles I found here:

The sad thing of all these Churches is that they have lived under the second class status of effective dhimmitude being a people subject to the same propaganda the Muslim majority has received. That propaganda especially since the rise of Islamic reform movements pointing back to the days of purist Islam and the glory days of Muslim domination under Islamic Conquests and the Ottoman Turks at the end of WWI. Mustapha Kemal decided to save everything Turkish by reasserting what was left of the Ottoman domains by establishing the Republic of Turkey abolishing the Ottoman Sultanate and the last Caliphate. Mustapha Kemal changed his Ottoman name to Ataturk to finish this Turkishfication resulted in the Armenian Christian genocide to get rid of the large Armenian minority. Also relatively new Greek independence led to a post WWI attempt to retake ancient Greek locations of Anatolia that included Istanbul which was the Islamized ancient Greek Capital city of Constantinople. Ataturk managed to withstand Greek reunification and in the process gave the Greek indigenous population the violent boot from Anatolia which was also a bit of a genocide.

 

This post WWI effort to bring Constantinople back under Christian governance by the then nascent Greek nation may have been a lost opportunity to introduce Jihad conquered Christian lands to Western-style forms of governance with an emphasis on Christian Liberty and Civil Rights. The thing is war-weary Europe began to perceive a colonialist mentality might be easier to utilize the extraction of oil reserves the winning powers of WWI could exploit from Muslim dominated oil enriched lands.

 

If one includes present day Iran as part of the crude oil discovery in the Muslim Middle East then 1903 is the beginning. The largest Middle Eastern oil was first discovered in March 1938 in Saudi Arabia. Oil became the new gold that ran geopolitics. Military powers used their clout to develop the oil fields and the relatively new Arab nations largely carved into existence by WWI and WWII victors became the capital to exploit oil wealth. The Muslim nations soon woke up to their political clout based on oil rather than military weaponry. After two World Wars between military powers largely of Western origin, Muslim nations reaped the benefits of Capitalism rather than the threat of Western military imperialism. As long as weaponized innovations continues from Western powers and now Asian military development in China and India with Japan perhaps compelled to re-militarize, frankly the Capitalist arm of oil control among Muslim nations will eventually be determined by military might again. But that is another essay. (An essay on Middle Eastern oil development)

 

The seeds of the defeat of WWI inspired European Jews to repopulate the Holy Land of which the new League of Nations awarded the Brits with the Palestine Mandate intended to be developed as a Jewish Homeland. Regardless of Muslim and Arab apologist propaganda to the contrary, Jews immigrating to their original Holy Land revitalized a barren land ignored by Ottomans. (See HERE and HERE) In reality Jews had been immigrating to the Holy Land for some time even while under Ottoman control. The Brits began to view the Jewish Homeland issue as a detriment to their National Interests when it was realized the emerging independent Middle Eastern lands were to be dominated by Muslim Arabs which had loads of petroleum. So the Brits began secret efforts to a Greater Syria to be led by Hashemites to secure an oil supply. The Jewish presence in formerly Muslim conquered land is seen by Muslims as an affront to Islamic Supremacism. Couple Islamic Supremacism with the Antisemitism spreading through Europe which began to infiltrate Muslim nations as well. Also the Christians living in Muslim lands had become totally dhimmified to supporting all causes Islamic even if it was and is to the Christian communities’ own detriment.

 

In the earliest days of Christianity after the Apostolic days, the Patristic Fathers which are primarily the great theologians – that lived in Christian dominated Middle Eastern areas – taught Jew-hatred as much as Christology:

 

Tertullian is influential since he writes a tract with the title Adversos Judaeos, which would become the name of the entire tradition, the so-called Adversos Judaeos tradition. This contained of an allegorical anti-Jewish exposition of Old Testament texts. In this tradition the Old Testament promises pertain to Christians, whereas judgements (sic) pertain to Jews. Tertullian repeats (from earlier Fathers) that circumcision is a mark so that they may be punished, referring to texts like Is 1:2, 4, 7, 15; they will not enter into Jerusalem (Tert. Adv. Jud. 3). Cyprian’s influence mainly lies in his extensive list of Scriptural arguments against the Jews, the so-called Testimonia, gaining great influence in the theology of the coming centuries. Later, the eastern church fathers also wrote strongly Anti-Jewish tracts. Gregory of Nyssa: “God-murderers, prophet-murderers, fighters against God, God-haters, they who transgress the Law, they who fights grace, they who have another faith than the fathers, advocates of the devil, brood of vipers, slanderers , those who have darkened minds, the leaven of the Pharisees, the sunedrion of the devil, Destroyers, thouroughly (sic) evil ones, the stoners, the haters of good. ”(Greg. Nyss. Or. in Christi Resurrect. 5). The beloved John Chrysostom is vehement in his assault against Jews.” (see his eight Orations against the Jews). Admittedly, this could be qualified even if not possible to make undone by saying that he in later texts he can acknowledge that God has not rejected his people (Homilies on Romans 18). In sum, these few examples show that this is no small problem in Patristic theology. (Anti-Jewish structures in Patristic theology; By Anders Gerdmar; AndersGerdmar.com; 10/28/09)

 

The Patristic Fathers are a source of rich theology for the Episcopate Churches (e.g. Roman Catholic and Eastern Orthodox) that place a high stock on tradition more than Scriptures. Unfortunately these early Church Fathers became entrenched in an unscriptural blame game that the Jews in entirety are Christ-killers due to the Crucifixion. As I already mentioned the sinless man portion of Christ needed to die as a sacrifice of blood to remit and expiate the price needed for humanity’s Redemption. The reality was that the Jewish ruling class that empowered the Temple Sanhedrin were jealous and fearful of losing their entrusted status provided by Roman conquering authority. Due to that fear of status loss, Jesus was perceived as a person that would rock the boat by inspiring Jewish rebellion against Roman authority. Thus the Sanhedrin leadership convinced Pontius Pilate that Jesus represented that rebellious spark and under threat of the Sanhedrin squealing to the megalomaniac Caesar of the day authorized Jesus’ humiliating Crucifixion. Or at least so the Holy Word of God portrays in the four Gospels.

 

The leading Clergyman of Christian Eastern Rite Churches in the 21st century are alarmingly in the same position as the Sanhedrin in Christ’s pre-Resurrection days right now in today’s age. The primary difference being in Christ’s day the Sanhedrin had an influence of a Jewish majority in Judea. Due to a millennia of Jihad the former Christian majority of the Middle East has been reduced to the minority under even worse restrictions under Islamic Sharia than the majority Jews experienced under Roman law and Roman military enforcement. The Roman solution for Jews that desired self-determination in their own homeland was extermination and eviction of the majority. The Jihad Islamic solution to reduce a Christian majority to a minority was convert, live under a humiliated status or die.

 

The Christians that didn’t convert to Islam immediately did so after centuries of humiliation removed memories of the previous generations of faithful Christians eventually reducing the faithful to a minority. Becoming a minority was not an overnight phenomena.

 

Here are excerpts that should give you an inkling of how Jihad Islamized and Arabized the formerly Christian majority of the Middle East and North Africa:

 

 

Most of what follows are quotations that illustrate the plight of Eastern Christianity since the Islamic conquests of the Eastern and Southern parts of the Mediterranean world.  … While modern Islamic scholars have endeavored to re-define jihad, claiming that it is primarily a struggle with self, Jacques Ellul points out that history proves otherwise.

 

 

“In Islam, however, jihad is a religious obligation. It forms part of the duties that the believer must fulfill. It is Islam’s normal path to expansion.” P. 18, 19

 

“Hence, the second important specific characteristic is that the jihad is an institution, and not an event, that is to say it is part of the normal functioning of the Muslim world. The conquered populations change status (they become dhimmis), and the shari’a tends to be put into effect integrally, overthrowing the former law of the country. The conquered territories do not simply change owners. Rather they are brought into a binding collective (religious) ideology — with the exception of the dhimmi condition — and are controlled by a highly perfected administrative machinery.” P. 19

 

 

“The religious obligation to fight the Christians required a permanent state of war which justified the organization of seasonal raids (ghazwa)’They sometimes consisted of short pillaging incursions to collect booty, steal livestock, and enslave the villagers. Other campaigns, led by the caliph in person, called for considerable military preparations. Provinces were ravaged and burned down, towns pillaged and destroyed, inhabitants massacred or deported.” P. 48

 

 

“Under the Umayyads, the Peoples of the Book, particularly the Christians, represented the large majority of the Islamic states’ subjects and —with the Zoroastrians — its principal taxpayers. This economic strength also constituted a political power that had to be controlled, since revolts would have paralyzed the Arab army, which was accumulating booty and slaves for the caliph in the dar al-harb.” P. 69

 

“The two pillars of the nascent Islamic state in the conquered lands were the army — formed by Arab tribes and the slaves taken as spoils of war — and the conquered masses: tributaries, slaves, freed men, and converts, a workforce which fed the economic sector. The third pillar — juridical power — was being elaborated. It would undertake to balance and rectify the enormous demographic disparity between the conquered Peoples of the Book and the Muslims. – the legal institution would formulate a collection of laws which gradually whittled down the rights of the dhimmis and confined them to a cramped condition, by transferring to the umma all the key positions that the dhimmis had formerly held.” Pp. 69, 70

 

 

“Does the expression ‘protected religious minorities’ or ‘tolerated religious minorities’ adequately describe the dhimmi peoples?

 

“In the lands conquered by jihad the Peoples of the Book formed majorities, among whom the Arabs of the first wave of Islamization and the Turks of the second wave were in the minority. Presumably the complex and little-known processes that transformed those majorities into minorities covered some three or four centuries for each wave of Islamization. By contracting it, the expression ‘religious minorities’ reverses a chronological process that had spread over centuries, whose result — the minority condition — is taken as its starting point.”

 

 

“Decimated by razzias in the countryside, they sought refuge in the towns which they developed and embellished. Branded with opprobrium, the conquerors still chose to drag them from region to region in order to revive ravaged lands and restore ruined towns. Once again, they built, again they worked. Once again they were driven out, again pillaged and ransomed. And as they dwindled, drained of their blood and spirit, civilization itself disappeared, decadence stagnated, barbarism reigned over lands which, previously, when they were theirs, were lands of civilization, of crops and of plenty.” P. 265

 

“The elites who fled to Europe took their cultural baggage with them, their scholarship, and their knowledge of the classics of antiquity. Therefore, in the Christian lands of refuge — Spain, Provence, Sicily, Italy — cultural centers developed where Christians and Jews from Islamized lands taught to the young Europe the knowledge of the old pre-Islamic Orient, formerly translated into Arabic by their ancestors.” P. 265

The brainwashed Eastern Rite Christians that have lived for about a millennia under this kind of Islamic Supremacist indoctrination have caused these people who cling to what tradition they can inherent in Patristic writings combined with Islamic theology on the People of the Book (Jews and Christians), it is not surprising that Eastern Rite Christians have embraced the same Antisemitism that is ingrained into Muslims via their Quran, Hadith, Sira and Sunna. (This essay on the shrinking of Middle Eastern Christianity may be of interest: The Forgotten Christian World)

 

This explains but does not excuse the hostility of Arab Christians booing Senator Ted Cruz off the stage at the September 10 In Defense of Christians summit held in Washington DC. I wasn’t surprised in the glee of Muslim apologists cheering the IDC Arab Christians. I won’t be surprised if Leftists that believe Israel is occupying land that should be a Palestinian State cheered on the IDC Arab Christians. I was surprised at some of the criticism delivered by stalwart Conservatives who whined Senator Cruz undermined the purpose of the IDC summit for self-promoting political reasons among pro-Israel supporters.

 

Frankly I don’t know if Senator Cruz realized that a chunk of Arab Christians representing Middle Eastern Christians being exterminated by ISIS were there. I don’t know if Senator Cruz misjudged a Support-Israel message meant to enlist Israeli help against the Christian genocide. I don’t know if Senator Cruz was aware that antisemitic Middle Eastern Christians were in the audience and it disgusted him as a supporter of Israel.

 

AND frankly I don’t care about all those scenarios. Dear God in Heaven the same Muslims exterminating Christians want to do the same thing to Jews while wiping Israel off the map. Arab Christians need to get over the Christ-killer malarkey and abandon any belief in antisemitic Conspiracy Theories either developed by Jew-hating Muslims or adopted from pre-WWII European Jew-hatred Conspiracy Theories that blame Jews for all the woes of the globe and the idiocy of Jewish world domination.

 

Jews left to their own devices are pretty much an insular group. The Jewish desire is to live in peace in their own God-Promised homeland (religious) or in secular land free from Jew-hatred (non-religious). Whether religious or secular the land today an independent and free Jewish State called Israel was well placed for that situation. The Ottoman Turks and the Arab Notables that administered the Levant before 1917 had allowed the area to be stripped of effective resource productivity forcing near slave conditions upon serf like agrarian Arab farmers to struggle to produce crops in which a mere survival portion was given back. In coming Jewish immigrants brought Western technological knowledge of agrarian techniques that revitalized the land agriculturally. The revitalized land needed laborers that the Jews were not able yet to provide opening the door for more Arab Muslims to emigrate to labor (under better circumstances I might add then provided by Arab Notables) for life sustaining work.

 

The Arab speaking Christians that were in the Levant were primarily urban dwellers still under the Christ-killer mentality. As more Jewish immigrants to the Levant under Turkish authority grew harmonious Jewish-Muslim relations existed until the power-wealth minded Arab Notables began to realize Jewish competition might affect their bottom line economically. Hence the Notables and Muslim Clerics began planting seeds of Quranic Islamic Supremacism into the Laborer Muslims producing a lifestyle fear of the old Jewish Conspiracy Theories. Dhimmified Arab Christians bought into this fear mongering joining Muslim Arabs in complaining about the increasing Jewish immigration to the Jewish Homeland.

 

Here are a few of the Israel-hating Christian Clergyman that attended the IDC summit that were disgusted with Senator Cruz’s pro-Israel key note speech:

 

Patriarch Cardinal Mar Bechara Boutros al-Rai – Lebanon

 

Antioch Church patriarch Gregory III Laham -Melkite Greek Catholic Patriarch of Antioch Syria

 

Syriac Orthodox Church Patriarch Moran Mor Ignatius Aphrem II

 

Patriarch John X (Yazigi)

 

[JRH Observation: I haven’t found any real associations with Israel-hatred with Patriarch John X. Which means he probably cares more for his flock than Jewish stereotypes, but still he has associated Syrian dictator and Jew-hater President Bashar al-Assad. The simple answer could be al-Assad has been friendly to Syrian Christians. However, al-Assad has not been so friendly to Christians outside of Syria such as in the days of Syrian domination of Lebanon.]

 

Syriac Catholic Patriarch Ignatius Joseph III Younan – Syriac Catholic Patriarch of Antioch Syria

 

“The Free Beacon notes that other IDC summit speakers, including Antioch Church leader John X (Yazigi) and Syriac Catholic Patriarch Ignatius Joseph III Younan, have all persistently defended the Assad regime.

 

A report from CNEWA in May of 2013 cited Younan’s statement that events in Syria were the result of Western nations carrying out a geopolitical strategy “to split Syria and other countries” in the Middle East.

 

“It’s not a question of promoting democracy or pluralism as the West wants us to understand of its policies,” Younan said. “This is a lie, this is hypocrisy.”

 

Younan added that Western nations “bear responsibility for what is happening in Syria,” and that his and other leaders’ warnings about the violence in the region leading to chaos to countries such as the United States “chose not to believe that.” (‘IN DEFENSE OF CHRISTIANS’ SUMMIT FEATURES SUPPORTERS OF HEZBOLLAH; By DR. SUSAN BERRY; Breitbart.com; 9/11/14)

 

Aram I Keshishian, Catholicos of the Great House of Ceilicia of the Armenian Apostolic Church – Lebanon

 

The Armenian Orthodox Catholicos of the House of Cilicia called Monday for a serious effort to put an end to Israel’s “criminal practices” against the Palestinians.

 
In a statement made on his return to Beirut from Damascus, where he participated in an annual religious gathering, Aram I Keshishian also called for dialogue and negotiations between all parties concerned in the Middle East conflict.

 
“(This is) the only way to achieve a just, comprehensive and permanent peace,” he said, stressing the need for the Palestinians to gain their “full and legitimate rights, by the establishment of an independent Palestinian state with Jerusalem as its capital.”

 
Keshishian questioned why the international community ­ especially the UN and the United States ­ “overlooked the Israeli aggressive policy in the Middle East that has dissipated all hopes for achieving peace.” (
Armenian Orthodox prelate flays Israeli ‘criminality’; from Daily Star Lebanon; 3/12/02)

 

[JRH Observation: Aram I comments on Israel a little over a decade ago reflect the dhimmi attitude toward Jews rather than the Biblical view of a Promised Land to the descendants of Abraham through the Old Testament child of Promise Isaac. This is rather than the Quranic lie that Abraham’s promise was from Allah pertaining to Ishmael.]

 

Bishop Angaelos, General Bishop of the Coptic Orthodox Church of Alexandria – Egypt

 

[JRH Observation: Bishop Angaelos as Patriarch John X (Yazigi) also, seems to be more concerned about his flock but the Bishop’s criticism of Senator Cruz makes me suspicious he has a bit of Antisemitism running through him. Below is a quote trying to be an apologist for those who booed Senator Cruz’s Pro-Israel stand at an anti-Christian genocide being perpetuated by ISIS IDC summit.]

 

As mentioned in my previous statement of 10 September 2014, “Christians, along with those who live by faith, morals, and ethics, and the international community, must collaborate to address this threat against not only innocent civilians, but our way of life as we know it today.” Having spoken at this IDC Summit on the plight of Christians in the Middle East, and particularly in Iraq and Syria, I take personal exception to sweeping statements made about those in attendance as espousing “bigotry and hatred…against Jews and Israel”. In light of the current very real challenges, this is not a time for such divisive and inflammatory language that demonises communities and causes rifts between them when their collaboration is most needed.

 

As servants of the people, clergy, politicians or otherwise, we are accountable and responsible as representatives, stewards and reconcilers to deal at the most difficult of times and circumstances with the most peaceful means to overcome apparent misunderstanding and conflict. (Comment on the recent IDC Gala dinner by His Grace Bishop Angaelos, General Bishop of the Coptic Orthodox Church in the United Kingdom; Posted by The Coptic Orthodox Church Centre; The Coptic Orthodox Church UK; 9/12/14 16:14)

 

There is a culture of Antisemitism among Middle Eastern Christians. It is inexcusable. Nonetheless the genocide perpetrated on behalf of Islamic Supremacism is as reprehensible as Hitler’s genocide perpetrated against the Jews in the Holocaust of WWII. The sad thing is in today’s Middle East Hitler’s genocide is seen as a heroic event among Muslims and I have no doubt due to the culture also among Middle Eastern Christians. Indeed Hitler’s Mein Kampf in an Arabic translation is a best seller even today.

 

In a final word on Senator Cruz at the IDC Summit let’s look at this guy’s obvious amateur news editorial praising the Senator for his stand with Israel and in my opinion showing that a remarkable chunk of Christianity are still Jew-haters.

 

VIDEO: Ted Cruz Walks Out of In Defense of Christians Gala Event After Being Booed! IDC News Commentary

 

Published by FITRNews

Published on Sep 11, 2014

 

In Depth Commentary & highlights on Ted Cruz walking out of the In Defense of Christians annual gala event 2014. Includes a clip from the event @ 3.5 minutes in.

FITR News is a Fork In The Road Media Production. We encourage patriots to make a right at the fork in the road.

This first video is our maiden voyage and was uploaded on September 11th of 2014.

The Facebook post of Senator Ted Cruz of the state of Texas of the United States of America, is as follows: “Tonight in Washington should have been a night of unity as we came together for the inaugural event for a group that calls itself ‘In Defense of Christians.’ Instead, it unfortunately deteriorated into a shameful display of bigotry and hatred.

When I spoke in strong support of Israel and the Jewish people, who are being persecuted and murdered by the same vicious terrorists who are also slaughtering Christians, many Christians in the audience applauded. But, sadly, a vocal and angry minority of attendees at the conference tried to shout down my expression of solidarity with Israel.

They cannot shout down the truth. And we should not shy away from expressing the truth, even in the face of – especially in the face of – ignorance and bigotry.

I told the attendees that those who hate Israel also hate America, that those who hate Jews also hate Christians, and that anyone who hates Israel and the Jewish people is not following the teachings of Christ.

These statements were met with angry boos. I went on to tell the crowd that Christians in the Middle East have no better friend than Israel. That Christians can practice their faith free of persecution in Israel. And that ISIS, al Qaeda, Hamas, and Hezbollah, along with their state sponsors in Syria and Iran, are all part of the same cancer, murdering Christians and Jews alike. Hate is hate, and murder is murder.

I came to this event tonight to help shine a light on the tragic persecution and slaughter of Christians by ISIS and Islamic radicals throughout the Middle East. American leaders have been far too silent as to this horrific evil.

But bigotry and hatred have no place in this discussion. Anti-Semitism is a corrosive evil, and it reared its ugly head tonight.

After just a few minutes, I had no choice. I told them that if you will not stand with Israel, if you will not stand with the Jews, then I will not stand with you. And then I walked off the stage.”

The IDC (In Defense of Christians) website was down at the time of the editing of this YouTube video, due to high traffic. When accessible it can be found at http://www.indefenseofchristians.org

Here is their official statement regarding this situation of September 10th: “Statement of IDC President following disruption at IDC Gala Dinner

In Defense of Christians President Toufic Baaklini issued the following statement in response to a disruption at the Inaugural Summit Gala Dinner: “As Cardinal Rai so eloquently put it to the attendees of the In Defense of Christians’ inaugural Summit gala dinner: ‘At every wedding, there are a few problems.’ In this case, a few politically motivated opportunists chose to divide a room that for more than 48 hours sought unity in opposing the shared threat of genocide, faced not only by our Christian brothers and sisters, but our Jewish brothers and sisters and people of all other faiths and all people of good will.

“Tonight’s injection of politics when the focus should have been on unity and faith, momentarily played into the hands of a few who do not adhere to IDC’s principles. They were made no longer welcome.

“When we set out to form In Defense of Christians, many in the foreign policy and faith-based communities said such an effort was impossible. That it would be too difficult to bring such a diverse group of Christian sects, religious and human rights organizations together to draw attention not only to the plight of the deteriorating situation facing our Christians brothers and sisters, but also to the plight of all people of faith, in the Middle East who are suffering.

“For more than 48 hours, our initial IDC conference was successfully bridging divides of faith, language, geography and politics. It has not been easy, and not without challenges. Tonight’s events make clearer than ever, that In Defense of Christians is desperately needed in a world that remains divided to the point where even the most fundamental value of life and human dignity are cast aside.

“We remain undaunted and focused on achieving our goals.”

Comment Insights into Christianity and Islam


Jesus died for humanity - Muslims die for Mo

John R. Houk

© September 11, 2014

 

I have to cross post a couple of comments made to the post “Christianity’s Non-Compete Clause” on one of my blogs – NCCR. A comment by the screen name perceptor1 was very insightful. The person went to great lengths to show Christianity as tolerant and peaceful while Islam is the exact opposite as a conquest-minded theopolitical ideology. I only had one slight disagreement to the comment. Perceptor1 says this about Christianity:

 

Christianity does not forbid competition, but merely ‘claims’ it is useless or ineffectual to compete with Christ’s act on the cross. “

 

I left this comment in reference to that one sentence:

 

Perceptor1 I believe we are saying the same thing. The apples and oranges thing really is just a matter of semantics. Otherwise, you have made an awesome comment that is very insightful. I have to disagree a little though. The Christian Scriptures often warn of false religions, false prophets, false gospels and worrisome doctrines. And yet the warning is not followed with a command to kill the offenders as Islam commands its followers.”

 

You can read perceptor1’s comment to form your own opinion. It is my opinion the slight disagreement is semantic and thus not worth getting bent out of shape over.

 

Then Dajjal makes a series of comments that when collated together roughly has the theme that Islam is intolerant and violent. You should note that Dajjal writes in a slightly more hostile manner about Islam than I do; nevertheless his sentiments are correct.

Perceptor1’s Apple and Oranges

Posted: September 11, 2014 at 5:24 PM

 

John Houk has compared apples with oranges. Christianity makes the universal ‘claim’ that Jesus is the only path to salvation. Islam counters with the universal claim that Mohammed is the final messenger. At this point, the two religions diverge in ‘methodology’.

 

Christianity’s method is based on the Golden Rule, unlike Islam which is based on the warfare of subjugating competing tribes. Islam is a tribal warrior cult. Mohammed was sent by Allah to fight until he conquered the competing tribes and imposed his political dominance over them, thereby eliminating competition.

 

Christianity does not forbid competition, but merely ‘claims’ it is useless or ineffectual to compete with Christ’s act on the cross. Praying thousands of prayers or chanting mantras will not help one acquire eternal salvation, but only faith in the redeeming power of Christ’s substitutionary atonement. The so-called ‘non-compete’ provisions Sharia are prescripts, ordinances and decrees from Allah which are absent in Christianity. Sharia law is Allah’s law and it forbids ‘others’ to preach to Moslem, to ring their church bells, perform religious rights in public or even distribute religious literature to Moslems. Moslem rulers felt it was their duty to destroy Christian books, churches and monasteries wherever Christians refused to submit to Islamic rule.

 

Medieval Christian kings often behaved badly towards minorities, treating them in extremely discriminatory ways, but they were not following Christianity’s methodology based on the Golden Rule.

 

Christianity divides what is due to Caesar from what is due to God. Islam does not. Islam is the religion of the State and the State is the indivisible political expression of Islam.

 

Christianity acknowledges competition and does not forbid it. Islam forbids all competition with Moslem males.

The Beginning of a Series of Dajjal Comments

‘What did Moe do? The answer exemplifies Isdamn’

First Comment date: September 11, 2014 at 5:32 PM

 

What did Moe do? The answer exemplifies Isdamn, revealing the true meaning of the Qur’an. It is found in the Jihad books of the six canonical hadith collections, Volumes 1…12 of Tabari’s History, The Sealed Nectar, Ibn Sa’d and Guillaume’s The Life of Muhammad. Read one of them and curse Isdamn for it is evil.

 

3:2. Allâh! Lâ ilahâ illa Huwa (none has the right to be worshipped but He), the Ever Living, the One Who sustains and protects all that exists.

 

Only Allah has the right to be worshipped. Corollary: there is no right to practice Christianity.

Isdamn declares unremitting warfare against Christians. Who can get a clue?

 

9:29. Fight against those who (1) believe not in Allâh, (2) nor in the Last Day, (3) nor forbid that which has been forbidden by Allâh and His Messenger (4) and those who acknowledge not the religion of truth (i.e. Islâm) among the people of the Scripture (Jews and Christians), until they pay the Jizyah with willing submission, and feel themselves subdued.

 

Only Allah has the right to rule. There is no appeal to his rulings.

33:36. It is not for a believer, man or woman, when Allâh and His Messenger have decreed a matter that they should have any option in their decision. And whoever disobeys Allâh and His Messenger, he has indeed strayed in a plain error.

 

Allah gives the world to Muslims through conquests, irreversibly.

13:41. See they not that We gradually reduce the land (of disbelievers, by giving it to the believers, in war victories) from its outlying borders. And Allâh judges, there is none to put back His Judgement and He is Swift at reckoning.

Christianity’s Non-Compete Clause


 

Jesus the ONLY Way

 

John R. Houk

© September 11, 2014

 

Here is a great essay by Kenneth Roberts that I found on Political Islam. The central theme is that Islam has a non-compete clause encoded into their holy writings and theology. And Mr. Roberts also takes the next step alluding that Islam is the only major religion with a non-compete clause.

 

I am a Christian so I probably shouldn’t comment definitively on the certainty of other religions accepting the existence of other faiths. However, I do know that Christianity has a non-compete clause also embedded into our Holy writings. The difference between Islam and Christianity is how that encoded non-compete is to be placed into action.

 

Islam overtly utilizes its incomprehensible dualistic theology in which two contradictory Quranic teachings are true as long as Islam is promoted. For example the Quran tells Muslims to treat the People of the Book with respect because these poor ignorant people were followers of Allah but allowed themselves to distort the content of their Holy writings. Contrasting this respect for the People of the Book is the command to kill them for blaspheming against Mohammed the false prophet and blaspheming the faith of Islam by asserting Jesus is both fully human and fully God and is a part of the Trinity which Christians believe is the mystery of three persons that are ONE God. The Islamic solution for this perceived blasphemy is to kill them wherever you find them. Although Islamic dualism is not specifically mentioned in this essay by Ali Sina, the essay demonstrates the reality of Islam toward non-Muslims:

 

Let us compare both sides of Quran:

 

In Surah 73:10 God tells Mohammad to be patient with his opponents, “Be patient with what they say, and part from them courteously”. While in Surah 2:191 God orders him to kill his opponents, “kill them wherever you find them, and drive them out from wherever they drove you out.” In Surah 2:256 God tells Mohammad not to impose Islam by force, “There is no compulsion in religion”, Then again in verse 193 He tells his messenger to kill whoever rejects Islam, “Fight them until there is no persecution and the religion is God’s”. In Surah 29:45 God tells Mohammad to speak nicely to people of the Book (Christians and Jews), “Argue with people of the book, other than evil doers, only by means of what are better! and say, we believe in what has been sent down to us and sent down to you. Our God is the same as your God, and we are surrendered to Him.” But in Surah 9:29 Allah tells him to fight the people of the Book, “Fight those who do not believe in God and the last day… and fight People of the Book, who do not accept the religion of truth (Islam) until they pay tribute by hand, being inferior”.

 

Muhammad gives no justification for this discrepancy in the Quran and the change in Allah’s mood from peaceful to militant and conciliatory to confrontational. Muslim apologists in the West present the kinder verses of the Quran or what is known as the Early Revelation. While Islamic scholars, when have only Muslims as their audience, say that those softer verses of the Quran were abrogated and supplanted by harsher ones. The reason given is, as Al Maudoody puts it, “Mohammad became strong enough to move from the stage of weakness to the stage of Jihad”. READ ENTIRETY (The Contradictory teachings of the Quran; By Ali Sina; found at Harrington Sites – Attributed to FaithFreedom.org but couldn’t find it)

 

The Religion of Peace has collated some Muslim suras that show the Quran requiring violence and/or death for non-Muslims that defy Islamic Supremacism: “What does the Religion of Peace Teach About Violence?

 

Christianity in contrast does not teach human beings to exact violence and death against nonbelievers of Christianity. Rather Christians are to share the Good News of Christ’s deliverance from this dark age by believing that the Blood of Christ exacted on Him by human hands is the Redemption price for Adam and Eve’s failure in selling out to Satan in the Garden of Eden; thus one must believe in Jesus is the Son of God in deity and the son of man via Mary Who died on the Cross, was buried for three days and arose from the grave in bodily form to reside on the Right Hand of God the Father. Unbelief is dealt with in the Last Judgment when the Book of Life is opened to see whose name is written or not written in it. God’s Mercy is extended for that human decision until a person’s dying breath to Believe in Christ Jesus.

 

Unfortunately as the Christian Church became a State Religion, rulers of man exacted punishment on nonbelievers for refusing to believe. That unscriptural punishment included a death sentence and mass genocide in the name of Jesus Christ. However such crimes against humanity is distinctly against the Great Commission of the Lord Jesus Christ the Son of God both coequal with the Father and with the nature of humanity. Taking on a sinless version of human nature in Christ is what makes Redemption from the lost nature of humanity possible in Christ’s Redeeming act.

 

Here are New Testament Scriptures demonstrating Redemption and toleration:

 

13 No one has ascended to heaven but He who came down from heaven, that is, the Son of Man who is in heaven.[a] 14 And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of Man be lifted up, 15 that whoever believes in Him should not perish but[b] have eternal life. 16 For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. 17 For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved.

 

18 “He who believes in Him is not condemned; but he who does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God. 19 And this is the condemnation, that the light has come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil. 20 For everyone practicing evil hates the light and does not come to the light, lest his deeds should be exposed. 21 But he who does the truth comes to the light, that his deeds may be clearly seen, that they have been done in God.” (Jesus talking in John 3: 13-21 NKJV)

 

3 Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places in Christ, 4 just as He chose us in Him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before Him in love,5 having predestined us to adoption as sons by Jesus Christ to Himself, according to the good pleasure of His will, 6 to the praise of the glory of His grace, by which He made us accepted in the Beloved.

 

7 In Him we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of His grace (Ephesians 1: 3-7 NKJV)

 

3 For I delivered to you first of all that which I also received: that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, 4 and that He was buried, and that He rose again the third day according to the Scriptures, 5 and that He was seen by Cephas, then by the twelve.6 After that He was seen by over five hundred brethren at once, of whom the greater part remain to the present, but some have fallen asleep. 7 After that He was seen by James, then by all the apostles. 8 Then last of all He was seen by me also, as by one born out of due time.

 

12 Now if Christ is preached that He has been raised from the dead, how do some among you say that there is no resurrection of the dead? 13 But if there is no resurrection of the dead, then Christ is not risen. 14 And if Christ is not risen, then our preaching is empty and your faith is also empty.

 

20 But now Christ is risen from the dead, and has become the firstfruits of those who have fallen asleep. 21 For since by man came death, by Man also came the resurrection of the dead. 22 For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ all shall be made alive. 23 But each one in his own order: Christ the firstfruits, afterward those who are Christ’s at His coming.24 Then comes the end, when He delivers the kingdom to God the Father, when He puts an end to all rule and all authority and power. 25 For He must reign till He has put all enemies under His feet. 26 The last enemy that will be destroyed is death.

 

42 So also is the resurrection of the dead. The body is sown in corruption, it is raised in incorruption. 43 It is sown in dishonor, it is raised in glory. It is sown in weakness, it is raised in power. 44 It is sown a natural body, it is raised a spiritual body. There is a natural body, and there is a spiritual body. 45 And so it is written, “The first man Adam became a living being.”[a] The last Adam became a life-giving spirit.

 

46 However, the spiritual is not first, but the natural, and afterward the spiritual. 47 The first man was of the earth, made of dust; the second Man is the Lord[b] from heaven. 48 As was the man of dust, so also are those who are made of dust; and as is the heavenly Man, so also are those who are heavenly. 49 And as we have borne the image of the man of dust, we shall also bear[c] the image of the heavenly Man. (Bold text mine - 1 Corinthians 15: 3-8, 12-14, 20-26, 42-49 NKJV)

 

5 Let this mind be in you which was also in Christ Jesus, 6 who, being in the form of God, did not consider it robbery to be equal with God, 7 but made Himself of no reputation, taking the form of a bondservant, and coming in the likeness of men. 8 And being found in appearance as a man, He humbled Himself and became obedient to the point of death, even the death of the cross. 9 Therefore God also has highly exalted Him and given Him the name which is above every name, 10 that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of those in heaven, and of those on earth, and of those under the earth, 11 and that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father. (Bold text mine - Philippians 2: 5-11 NKJV)

 

In case you have been too brainwashed to understand the mystery here, verse six proclaims Jesus is equal to God and ergo is God. Verse seven tells us Jesus emptied Himself of those Divine prerogatives as God to become a human being. Verse eight tells us he became a human being to be able to die. And we did Jesus as a man need to die? Because only a human being could remit the spiritual DNA passed to every single human by Adam that had become through disobedience by believing and giving allegiance to Satan in the Garden.

 

6 Now when these things had been thus prepared, the priests always went into the first part of the tabernacle, performing the services. 7 But into the second part the high priest went alone once a year, not without blood, which he offered for himself and for the people’s sins committed in ignorance; 8 the Holy Spirit indicating this, that the way into the Holiest of All was not yet made manifest while the first tabernacle was still standing.9 It was symbolic for the present time in which both gifts and sacrifices are offered which cannot make him who performed the service perfect in regard to the conscience—10 concerned only with foods and drinks, various washings, and fleshly ordinances imposed until the time of reformation.

 

11 But Christ came as High Priest of the good things to come,[a] with the greater and more perfect tabernacle not made with hands, that is, not of this creation. 12 Not with the blood of goats and calves, but with His own blood He entered the Most Holy Place once for all, having obtained eternal redemption. 13 For if the blood of bulls and goats and the ashes of a heifer, sprinkling the unclean, sanctifies for the purifying of the flesh, 14 how much more shall the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered Himself without spot to God, cleanse your conscience from dead works to serve the living God? 15 And for this reason He is the Mediator of the new covenant, by means of death, for the redemption of the transgressions under the first covenant, that those who are called may receive the promise of the eternal inheritance.

 

23 Therefore it was necessary that the copies of the things in the heavens should be purified with these, but the heavenly things themselves with better sacrifices than these.24 For Christ has not entered the holy places made with hands, which are copies of the true, but into heaven itself, now to appear in the presence of God for us; 25 not that He should offer Himself often, as the high priest enters the Most Holy Place every year with blood of another— 26 He then would have had to suffer often since the foundation of the world; but now, once at the end of the ages, He has appeared to put away sin by the sacrifice of Himself. 27 And as it is appointed for men to die once, but after this the judgment, 28 so Christ was offered once to bear the sins of many. To those who eagerly wait for Him He will appear a second time, apart from sin, for salvation. (Hebrews 9: 6-15, 23-28 NKJV)

 

Jesus sets the example of how to treat people in the present time who reject Him. In Jesus’ day Jews and the Samaritans did not get along too well. Samaritans were the descendants of the remnant left in Israel after deportation occurred by Assyrian conquest. These Jews (or really the remnant of the ten-tribe Northern Kingdom) that were left behind were devoid of spiritual leadership plus any Judaic faith they possessed was also corrupted by bad Kings allowing polytheistic religions to be practiced so that the King of Judah still centered in Jerusalem would not inspire rebellion. The Assyrians left these leaderless there to work the land. These remnant Northern Kingdom Hebrews left behind developed a religion that combing Judaic beliefs with some polytheistic beliefs. The returning Jews from the second deportation executed by conquering Babylon viewed these surviving remnant with disdain and thus as impure. This shows the reason Samaritans treated Jesus badly in the verses below:

 

51 Now it came to pass, when the time had come for Him to be received up, that He steadfastly set His face to go to Jerusalem, 52 and sent messengers before His face. And as they went, they entered a village of the Samaritans, to prepare for Him. 53 But they did not receive Him, because His face was set for the journey to Jerusalem. 54 And when His disciples James and John saw this, they said, “Lord, do You want us to command fire to come down from heaven and consume them, just as Elijah did?”[a]

 

55 But He turned and rebuked them,[b] and said, “You do not know what manner of spirit you are of. 56 For the Son of Man did not come to destroy men’s lives but to save them.[c]And they went to another village. (Bold text is mine – Luke 9-51-56 NKJV)

 

Hmm … What would Mohammed have done?

 

11 “Blessed are you when they revile and persecute you, and say all kinds of evil against you falsely for My sake. 12 Rejoice and be exceedingly glad, for great is your reward in heaven, for so they persecuted the prophets who were before you.

 

43 “You have heard that it was said, ‘You shall love your neighbor[a] and hate your enemy.’44 But I say to you, love your enemies, bless those who curse you, do good to those who hate you, and pray for those who spitefully use you and persecute you,[b] 45 that you may be sons of your Father in heaven; for He makes His sun rise on the evil and on the good, and sends rain on the just and on the unjust. 46 For if you love those who love you, what reward have you? Do not even the tax collectors do the same? 47 And if you greet your brethren[c] only, what do you do more than others? Do not even the tax collectors[d] do so? 48 Therefore you shall be perfect, just as your Father in heaven is perfect. (Matthew 5: 11-12, 43-48 NKJV)

 

How would Mohammed react to an enemy?

 

10 Also He said to them, “In whatever place you enter a house, stay there till you depart from that place. 11 And whoever[a] will not receive you nor hear you, when you depart from there, shake off the dust under your feet as a testimony against them.[b] Assuredly, I say to you, it will be more tolerable for Sodom and Gomorrah in the day of judgment than for that city!” (Mark 6-10-11 NKJV)

 

Mecca authorities had given Mohammed the boot. Mo went to Medina for refuge. For some idiotic reason the Medinans who appeared to be swayed by a Jewish-Arab tribe made a deal with Mo, BUT Mo began to gather in followers largely to the revenue sharing plan from robbing trade caravans. These followers became militarized. The Medina Jews became concerned with the writing on the wall concerning Mo’s power. Mo sets up the Jewish-Arab tribe with a false accusation providing the excuse to usurp power and authority from the Jewish-Arabs. The final result – Mo beheaded all the males above puberty and placed the useful women (regardless of marital status) into sex-slavery. After the Jews and Mo’s own Arab tribe were sufficiently subdued the false prophet practically walked on in to Mecca as the new ruler. Mo spent the remainder his days conquering today’s Arabic Peninsula being particularly harsh to those refusing to convert to Islam.

 

Christians have a non-compete clause but as earlier noted Scripture does not demand violence or death for refusing Christ as Savior. Neither do the Scriptures demand violence or death for a person who chooses to leave the Faith either for another or out of atheism. Even so leaving Christianity places a person in a position to have their name erased from the Book of Life opened at the Last Judgment.

 

6 since it is a righteous thing with God to repay with tribulation those who trouble you,7 and to give you who are troubled rest with us when the Lord Jesus is revealed from heaven with His mighty angels, 8 in flaming fire taking vengeance on those who do not know God, and on those who do not obey the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ. 9 These shall be punished with everlasting destruction from the presence of the Lord and from the glory of His power, 10 when He comes, in that Day, to be glorified in His saints and to be admired among all those who believe,[a] because our testimony among you was believed. (2 Thessalonians 1: 6-10 NKJV)

 

If one leads an unchristian lifestyle yet still professes Christianity there is a problem that needs to be dealt with. But still, the solution is not violence or death:

 

9 I wrote to you in my epistle not to keep company with sexually immoral people. 10 Yet I certainly did not mean with the sexually immoral people of this world, or with the covetous, or extortioners, or idolaters, since then you would need to go out of the world.11 But now I have written to you not to keep company with anyone named a brother, who is sexually immoral, or covetous, or an idolater, or a reviler, or a drunkard, or an extortioner—not even to eat with such a person.

 

12 For what have I to do with judging those also who are outside? Do you not judge those who are inside? 13 But those who are outside God judges. Therefore “put away from yourselves the evil person.”[a] (1 Corinthians 5: 9-13 NKJV)

 

Shunning an unrepentant apostate in the hope that repentance brings a return to Faith:

 

6 This punishment which was inflicted by the majority is sufficient for such a man, 7 so that, on the contrary, you ought rather to forgive and comfort him, lest perhaps such a one be swallowed up with too much sorrow. 8 Therefore I urge you to reaffirm your love to him. 9 For to this end I also wrote, that I might put you to the test, whether you are obedient in all things. (2 Corinthians 2: 6-9 NKJV)

 

Knowingly flirting with any sin that separates from God after experiencing Redemption in Christ presents a danger to self that may have eternal consequences:

 

1 Therefore, leaving the discussion of the elementary principles of Christ, let us go on to perfection, not laying again the foundation of repentance from dead works and of faith toward God, 2 of the doctrine of baptisms, of laying on of hands, of resurrection of the dead, and of eternal judgment. 3 And this we will[a] do if God permits.

 

4 For it is impossible for those who were once enlightened, and have tasted the heavenly gift, and have become partakers of the Holy Spirit, 5 and have tasted the good word of God and the powers of the age to come, 6 if they fall away,[b] to renew them again to repentance, since they crucify again for themselves the Son of God, and put Him to an open shame.

 

9 But, beloved, we are confident of better things concerning you, yes, things that accompany salvation, though we speak in this manner. 10 For God is not unjust to forget your work and labor of[a] love which you have shown toward His name, in that you have ministered to the saints, and do minister. 11 And we desire that each one of you show the same diligence to the full assurance of hope until the end, 12 that you do not become sluggish, but imitate those who through faith and patience inherit the promises. (Hebrews 6: 1-6, 9-12 NKJV)

 

Salvation is easy to attain in Christ but one must be sure to work out their Salvation in order to NOT condemn themselves to a negative eternal judgment.

 

Jesus Christ the Son of God is the ONLY way to a positive eternity in union with God Almighty:

 

7 Then Jesus said to them again, “Most assuredly, I say to you, I am the door of the sheep. 8 All who ever came before Me[a] are thieves and robbers, but the sheep did not hear them. 9 I am the door. If anyone enters by Me, he will be saved, and will go in and out and find pasture. 10 The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly. (John 10: 7-10 NKJV)

 

6 Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.

 

15 “If you love Me, keep[a] My commandments. 16 And I will pray the Father, and He will give you another Helper, that He may abide with you forever— 17 the Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot receive, because it neither sees Him nor knows Him; but you know Him, for He dwells with you and will be in you.

 

19 “A little while longer and the world will see Me no more, but you will see Me. Because I live, you will live also. 20 At that day you will know that I am in My Father, and you in Me, and I in you. 21 He who has My commandments and keeps them, it is he who loves Me. And he who loves Me will be loved by My Father, and I will love him and manifest Myself to him.”

 

26 But the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in My name, He will teach you all things, and bring to your remembrance all things that I said to you. 27 Peace I leave with you, My peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid. (John 14: 6, 15-17, 19-21, 26-27 NKJV)

 

The Christian non-compete clause thus is an extension of God’s Grace and Mercy in which the actual outcome results in a positive or negative Last Judgment according to the time spent in your mortal coil and your last mortal breath.

Islam’s Non-Compete Clause

 

By Kenneth Roberts

September 6, 2014

Political Islam

 

Imagine a football league where only one team is allowed to score goals or win. That’s the premise of political Islam.

 

Islam is the only religion with a non-compete clause. Non-compete agreements in today’s business world defend proprietary information. Proprietary ideas give companies their leading edge. Islam goes beyond branding itself ‘the best’ (which all ideologies do); Islam forbids other ideologies from competing with Islam in a number of areas. It’s like a modern corporation, but more ruthless.

Islam’s Unique Idea

Islam’s unique, proprietary idea is jihad, the holy war to eliminate competition with Islam. According to Ibn Khaldun, the holy war of jihad is not permitted to other religions or ideologies.

 

Non-Compete Regulations

Islam’s non-compete restrictions are summarized in the infamous Pact of Omar and Sharia law. They regulate non-Muslims from competing with Muslim males in the following areas: proselytizing, politics, employment opportunities, social status, prestige or ‘honor’, public events, using the Arabic language, teaching about Islam, marrying Muslim women, the security of possessions and the elegance or height of buildings…even in how the Kafirs dress. Nor may women compete with Muslim males, since Allah made women constitutionally inferior to men ‘in reason and religion’.

Islam’s non-compete restrictions are the Kafirs’ terms of surrender to the Islamic state. The Pact of Omar was made by eighth-century caliphs to be forced on non-Muslims against their wills. Wherever Islamists become the ruling class, the Pact of Omar is dragged out to crush whatever challenges Islamic monopolies. That makes Kafirs and women permanent underclasses in Sharia-ruled societies.

 

Islamists want to insinuate Sharia into Kafir societies before Kafirs and women are aware of its non-compete implications.

In a Sharia society, non-competition applies everywhere, even in the law courts where Sharia favors the inconvenience, impoverishment and humiliation of Kafirs and the inferior status of women.

 

How Islam defends non-competition

Islamic non-competition is defended by jihad. Jihad is a monopoly on aggression. Allah forbids Kafirs from resisting jihad in any way, since counterjihad is a way of competing with Islam.

What makes Islam’s non-compete system draconian is the normative means to enforce it: vigilantism. Since murder is reprehensible, Sharia law craftily hides the murder of Kafirs and apostates behind verbiage, mumbo jumbo and silence. Silence should not be overlooked as a powerful legal weapon!

 

America’s emancipation of slaves did not entirely end slavery. American slavery slyly continued as late as 1928 because no punishment was on the books for slave-owners, even though slavery was illegal. Similarly, Sharia law has no punishment for a vigilante who murders an apostate or a blasphemer. Islamic vigilantes in such cases are ‘killing by right’, that is, Allah authorizes killing apostates and blasphemers on the example of Mohammed. Vigilantes are considered auxiliary police enforcing Allah’s non-compete laws. Such vigilantes are heroes, rather than criminals.

 

Islam’s top authority on Sharia, the fatwa department of Al Azhar University in Cairo has sanctioned Islamic vigilantism. In theory, the death sentence for blasphemy is imposed by the Islamic state, but if the state isn’t available to act, a private Muslim vigilante may carry out a death sentence against a blasphemer. This is where Islamic law gets interesting. A self-directed vigilante may execute a fatwa issued by an imam, but even a fatwa is not necessary. When a Kafir competes with Islam or its prophet, a vigilante may murder the blasphemer even without a fatwa being issued.

 

We cannot imagine a Christian pastor issuing a death warrant, yet two hundred thousand imams are authorized to do so and over a billion Muslims are deputized to kill. Many writers and cartoonists around the world (such as Salman Rushdie, Robert Redecker, Ayaan Hirsi Ali, Kurt Westergaard, Lars Vilks, Molly Norris, Trey Parker and Matt Stone) have a clear understanding of Islamic vigilantism, since they live with full-time security guards. Almost everyone writing about Islam has received anonymous death threats. Writing about Islam breaches Islam’s non-compete clause.

Results of Non-Compete

The cost of Islam’s non-compete contract is stagnation. ‘Innovation’ (an evil word in Islam) is forbidden, because Islam’s alleged perfection cannot be improved. The 7th century is deemed the time of perfection, so Muslims cannot progress past it. Sharia leads the world backwards to the 7th century, not forwards to progress.

 

Muslims want to be world leaders, but their non-compete makes them followers. Competition has everything and produces everything that the Islamic world craves and needs for its survival, but the Muslim world produces little because of its philosophy of non-competition.

Jihadists curb their cognitive dissonance by repeating their certainty of Islam’s moral perfection until they all but drown out the images and voices of modernity. They want Islamic terrorism removed from discussion, so that 7th-century-loving Muslims are not contrasted with progress-loving Kafirs. Jihadists live in denial, but many burn out: they half-heartedly see backwardness is not the answer.

What should we do?

 
First of all, Kafirs need to see Islam’s non-compete clause is a real threat to progress and democratic values. Islamic belief in non-competition means that no progress is needed or possible. But Islam’s allegedly perfect society never existed, unless slavery, misogyny, vigilantism, inequality and genocide are ‘perfect’. Non-competition is bad for people. Societies that imposed monopolies on thought and political power have had cycles of revolution and counter-revolution or have stalled in poverty, disease and superstition.

Secondly, we should fault Islam’s non-compete system because it spreads fear; we should ban jihad because it has caused more than 270 million deaths and always creates tyrannies.

Recognizing political Islam’s dysfunction, today’s Muslims flee from it to live in free non-Islamist countries. Surveys show 65% of Muslims are Islamists in theory, but not in practice. This contradiction is Islam’s Achilles’ heel. Westerners should highlight it, rather than flattering the Islamism of oil-rich countries in order to keep oil prices low.

Mohammed declared endless war on competition giving Muslim males monopolies on everything. Jihadists expect to win this war through high birthrates and terrorism.

Many Western leaders shield jihad and supremacism from ideological scrutiny because they underestimate the pervasiveness of Islamism. Are they fit to lead?

As Islamism spreads, the vibrancy of the competitive world will gradually be dampened by Islam’s non-competition and terrorism.

 

It is self-refuting to fight the jihadists militarily, without blaming Islam’s non-compete philosophy. Non-competition is what ignites the jihadist culture, so refuting the non-compete philosophy of Islam should be a top priority.

 

“A footnote to a reader ‘David’ [Ken — September 7, 2014 @ 7:34 PM]:

Convict leasing began in 1846 and lasted until July 1, 1928, when Herbert Hoover was vying for the White House. When the U.S. entered World War II, the Franklin Roosevelt administration realized that the continued existence of involuntary servitude in the South undermined war propaganda against the Axis. Less than a week after Pearl Harbor, Circular N0. 3591 was issued to all federal prosecutors instructing them to prosecute cases of “involuntary servitude and slavery”. Finally, the Thirteenth Amendment would be enforced.

Sharia law maintains a loophole allowing the murder of apostates and blasphemers by private Muslims.”

Jack the Ripper in News Again


Ripper Strikes Again

 

John R. Houk

© September 9, 2014

 

As a lover of mystery novels from my early teens, especially the Sir Arthur Conan Doyle and Agatha Christie mysteries intrigued me in those early teen days. Thus one of the notorious unsolved murders of the late 19th century appended to a rapist-slashing serial killer has especially intrigued me – Jack the Ripper.

 

Despite the Jack the Ripper intrigue I am definitely not an expert Ripper-ologist. This is evidenced in my gullibility that Prince Albert Victor the Duke of Clarence and Avondale and grandson of Queen Victoria was Jack the Ripper. Most Ripper-ologists have debunked Prince Albert Victor was old Jack. I liked Prince Albert Victor for the serial killer because it made sense to me that only a murderer with powerful connections could keep Scotland Yard from finding such a brutalizing killer that terrified White Chapel residents. Couple the fact that White Chapel in the 1880s was a location within London where dubious and nefarious characters resided or worked. If a connected person was a murderer, Scotland Yard would be discouraged from investigating powerful and/or wealthy people committing crimes in White Chapel. But as I said the relatively young Prince has been exonerated as a killer.

 

There is a huge list of theories as to who Jack might have been as you can tell from the Wikipedia link I used connected to Jack the Ripper. Below is the Wikipedia prime suspects:

 

1.1 Montague John Druitt

 

1.2 Seweryn Kłosowski alias George Chapman

 

1.3 Aaron Kosminski

 

1.4 Michael Ostrog

 

1.5 John Pizer

 

1.6 James Thomas Sadler

 

1.7 Francis Tumblety

 

I found out yesterday that the 1.3 of the Wikipedia list – Aaron Kosminski – is believed by Russell Edwards to be THE Jack the Ripper. Edwards is a British businessman and armchair detective that is releasing a book entitled, “Naming Jack the Ripper”. Here’s a video with the Edwards point of view that he has proven Aaron Kosminski was Jack the Ripper:

 

VIDEO: NAMING JACK THE RIPPER, BY RUSSELL EDWARDS

 

Posted by Pan Macmillan

Published on Sep 7, 2014

 

New crime scene evidence.
A stunning forensic breakthrough.
The killer revealed.

Bringing together ground-breaking forensic discoveries – including vital DNA evidence – and gripping historical detective work, NAMING JACK THE RIPPER constructs the first truly convincing case for identifying the world’s most notorious serial killer.

In 2007, businessman Russell Edwards bought a shawl believed to have been left beside the body of fourth victim, Catherine Eddowes. He knew that, if genuine, the shawl would be the only piece of crime-scene evidence still in existence. It was the start of an extraordinary seven-year quest for Russell, as he sought to authenticate the shawl and learn its secrets. He had no idea this journey would take him so far.

After undergoing extensive forensic testing by one of the country’s top scientists, the shawl was not only shown to be genuine, stained with Catherine Eddowes’ blood, but in a massive breakthrough the killer’s DNA was also discovered – DNA that would allow Russell to finally put a name to Jack the Ripper . . .

Here is the BiometricUpdate.com link article by Rawlson King entitled “DNA evidence identifies Jack the Ripper” in which the above video was located.

 

Naming Jack the Ripper bk jk

 

Russell Edwards the author and genetic expert Dr. Jari Louhelainen are convinced the DNA shows that Kosminski’s DNA was on the shawl of prostitute murder victim Catherine Eddowes. However, other Ripper-ologists are far from convinced.

 

Alan Boyle writing for NBC News gives good reasons to think twice about Russell Edwards’ claim pertaining to Kosminski:

 

Does DNA analysis prove conclusively that a deranged Polish barber named Aaron Kosminski was behind the famous “Jack the Ripper” murders of the 19th century? The claim has stirred up a hue and cry among professional and amateur sleuths who have been following the case for decades — proving only that the evidence is far from conclusive.

 

 

But the chain of evidence would never hold up in a court: It’s based on fresh analysis of DNA recovered from a century-old bloodstained scarf linked to one of Jack the Ripper’s victims, Catherine Eddowes. Edwards’ scientific collaborator, Jari Louhelainen of Liverpool John Moores University, has linked some of the DNA from the stains to the genetic signature of Eddowes’ distant relatives. Another DNA signature, purportedly attributed to semen on the scarf, was linked to relatives of Kosminski.

 

Ripperologists have known about the scarf, as well as Kosminski’s status as a suspect, for years. The new twist has to do with the DNA tests. “There’s kind of a ‘CSI Effect’ going on,” Ryder said. “People hear ‘DNA,’ and they think it’s 100 percent solved.”

 

It’s not solved, as Ripperologists are only too happy to point out in the Casebook forum.

 

 

One of the reasons for the controversy has to do with the limitations of the DNA test that was used. Louhelainen could recover the genetic signature only from mitochondrial DNA, or mtDNA, rather than the nuclear DNA that serves as a unique identifier.

 

MtDNA is passed down from a mother to her children, and many people can share the same mtDNA signature. The signature linked to Kosminski, T1a1, is a relatively common subtype. Thus, the determination doesn’t mean much unless the signature can be narrowed down to a rarer subtype, or unless additional evidence can be brought to bear (as was the case for identifying the remains of Russia’s Czar Nicholas II and his family).

 

A larger question has to do with the scarf’s history: It’s been open to contamination for decades, and it’s not even clear that it was really left behind by Eddowes (or her killer) after the 1888 murder. “In the community of so-called experts, it’s not really considered evidence,” Ryder said.

 

Another ‘Case Closed’ moment?

 

Then there’s the fact that Kosminski doesn’t match up all that well with descriptions of the killer by contemporary witnesses. He was just 23 years old and reportedly slight of build. In contrast, witnesses have described a heavier-built, somewhat older man as skulking around the scenes of the crimes.

 

Kosminski has long been on the list of usual Ripper suspects, thanks largely to references to a “Kosminski’ in the writings of investigators, but many modern-day Ripperologists are doubtful he could have pulled off one of history’s most infamous strings of serial killings.

 

“If it actually was Kosminski, this guy was a borderline raving lunatic,” Ryder said. “This was not a criminal mastermind by any means.”

 

Ryder said the latest claims were reminiscent of another “Case Closed” moment in the tale of Jack the Ripper — the time in 2002 when crime novelist Patricia Cornwell declared that Victorian-era painter Walter Sickert was the killer, based in part on mtDNA analysis of a licked stamp.

 

Since then, a string of other suspects (including a woman dubbed “Jackie the Ripper”) have had their time in READ ENTIRETY (Was It Aaron Kosminski? Jack the Ripper DNA Claims Get Ripped; By ALAN BOYLE; NBC NEWS; 9/8/14, 2:48 pm)

 

In an Us vs Th3m article criticizing Russell Edwards and the Kosminski theory of the Jack the Ripper identity there is a list of specific reasons:

 

 

The Mail could exclusively reveal the killer to be… an Eastern European immigrant.

 

Typical bloody Poles, coming over here, stealing the jobs that could have been done by our hard-working British serial killers…

 

So, is that right? Has one of the greatest mysteries in forensic science just been solved by the newspaper than claimed that bread both cures and causes cancer?

 

Probably not. And here’s why…

 

Reason #1: The Source

 

This paper says it’s definitely true

 

The Mail claims that DNA analysis has identified Polish barber Aaron Kosminski as being Jack the Ripper. Which is great news. Those are the sorts of the results that would definitely be published in a reputable, peer-reviewed journal, right?

 

Well… Sort of. They come from an article written to promote the publication of a new book, Naming Jack The Ripper by Russell Edwards, which is published tomorrow and costs £16.99.

 

 

Reason #2: The Shawl

Russell Edwards, handling DNA evidence without gloves

 

All of the valuable DNA evidence came from the shawl that Mr Edwards is holding above. So what do we know about the shawl?

 

·         It’s not a shawl Look at it. It’s not a shawl. It measures 8 feet by 2 feet. Unless Catherine Eddowes was a thin, rectangular woman of incredible height, it’s not a shawl.

 

·         Catherine Eddowes didn’t own it As Mr Edwards points out, the day before she was murdered, Catherine Eddowes had to pawn her own shoes, so she was unlikely to have a finely-wrought shawl of Michaelmas daisies to hand. Mr Edwards think that Jack the Ripper gave it to Catherine before murdering her on it, and leaving it as a deliberate clue.

 

 

So it’s a shawl that’s not a shawl that was never at the crime scene that wasstolen by a policeman who was also never there whose wife was so disgusted by it that he preserved it in a fashion good enough to collect forensic evidence from over a century later.

 

 

Reason #3: The Process

 

Some DNA, kicking it mitochondrial-style

 

Okay, leaving aside the questions over the contamination of the sample and the small issue of peer review, surely the evidence is clear?

 

Except it’s not quite that simple. Because there was no nuclear DNA available from the sample, the researchers were forced to work from mitochondrial DNA, which can show common maternal ancestors, but isn’t much use for identifying individuals within a group.

 

The slow rate of mutation for mtDNA means that there are only mutations about every 40 generations or so, so when you have a perfect match on mitochondrial DNA, that means that the two samples shared the same maternal ancestor within the last 40 generations roughly. Or 1,000 years.

 

Even given all the other questions, all the results tell us is the descendants of Catherine Eddowes and relatives of Aaron Kosminski shared a common maternal ancestor at some point since Macbeth made himself king of Scotland.

 

 

Reason #4: The Samples

 

Even if we leave aside all the questions raised above, we should probably acknowledge that, as Catherine Eddowes was a prostitute, finding traces of semen on her clothing is not evidence that the person who produced that semen killed her. Unless you have a weird theory that Jack the Ripper gave Eddowes the shawl only to promptly murder her.

 

 

No, and there’s evidence that Kosminski was historically considered as a suspect precisely because he was a Jewish Pole.

 

What we have learned was that there is an unverified possibility, using a sample of dubious provenance, that suggests that the relatives of both Catherine Eddowes and Aaron Kosminski shared matrilineal ancestors with READ ENTIRETY (Are YOU Jack The Ripper? No. And neither’s Aaron Kosminski; By UsVsTh3m.com Staff; UsVsTh3m.com; 9/8/14 5:00pm)

 

So is Aaron Kosminski the Jack the Ripper or is the mystery still to be solved? I don’t know if even time will tell. Choose your favorite theory.

9/11: A Threat Assessment

 

By Justin O. Smith

Sent: 9/7/2014 7:22 PM

 

This September 11th America is once again under an intense terror threat from the Islamofascists and the Islamic State. While many Americans reflect on the horror of the September 11, 2001 World Trade Center attacks, innocent Americans falling 100 stories and trapped under burning rubble, and the violent and vicious attacks on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi on September 11, 2012, our leaders must now join together in several courses of action to defeat the ideology of Islam at home and abroad, especially in light of ongoing genocides against Christians in Iraq and Syria and the recent beheadings of two Americans.

 

Whether one believes our war is a cultural clash with Islam or, as Great Britain’s Prime Minister David Cameron recently stated, “a poisonous ideology of Islamic extremism that is condemned by all”, in brief, history shows that ISIS is actually implementing Islam exactly in the manner of Mohammed; history also shows that the Wahhabist philosophy followed by ISIS and the members of Al Qaeda and al-Nusra has been supported by the House of Saud since 1740, all of which are directly involved in global terrorism, along with their Muslim Brotherhood allies from Egypt’s Al Azhar University.

 

Wafa Sultan is a Syrian psychologist who left the Alawite sect of Islam, and she flatly asks, “What is this ‘moderate’, this ‘extremist’ Islam? I never heard such a thing in Syria growing up. Islam is Islam.” Ms. Sultan has made the point in numerous writings that “moderates” and “extremists” are purely a western invention, a myth.

 

The ISIS threat was known to the Obama administration well over a year ago, and yet, on September 3rd Obama admitted “We don’t have a strategy yet.” And on the heels of this admission, Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel stated, “… we are aware of over 100 U.S. citizens, who have U.S. passports, who are fighting with ISIL forces. There may be more. We don’t know.”

 

Last year, Moyer Abu Salha, a twenty-two year old American citizen from Florida, went to Syria for terror training. He subsequently returned to the U.S. for a visit, before he went back to Syria and conducted a suicide-bombing for al-Nusra in May 2014.

 

Abdirahmann Muhumed, a 29 year old Somali-American, worked for Delta Airlines before he left the U.S. to fight for al-Shabab, with 39 others, and was killed on the battlefield, just as Troy Kastigar, a close friend of Douglas McArthur McCain, was killed in 2009 after joining al-Shabab in Somalia. McCain was killed in Syria weeks ago, fighting alongside ISIS. All three were from an area in Minneapolis, Minnesota with a large Muslim population and a mosque tied to anti-American propaganda and advocacy for Islamic supremacy.

 

As Muslims increasingly press for concessions to Islamic norms in America, seeking to superimpose Sharia law doctrine over Western principles, the U.S. Congress must halt all Islamic immigration in a sensible, self-preserving measure for America. And common-sense dictates that the U.S. must also stop the ideological subversion by Saudi and the Council on American and Islamic Relations lobby groups that place spies in our military and the upper echelons of U.S. government and terror recruiters in our prisons, as they bribe our State Dept. officials and national security advisors; close your eyes and CIA Chief John Brennan sounds like a Saudi Muslim.

 

Recently, many Americans were appalled and angered to hear the British islamofascist Anjem Choudary tell FoxNews host Sean Hannity, “get ready _ America will be under Sharia law.” Choudary is suspected of recruiting scores of British Muslims to fight for ISIS.

 

Representative Michele Bachmann (R-MN) recently queried the FBI about American citizens fighting for ISIS and other terror groups. She asked, “Once they’re done fighting … what’s going to happen if they try to return?” The FBI replied, “Well, they’ll come into the country.” Bachmann continued, “Are you kidding me? We are not going to stop them from coming into the United States?” [Blog Editor: Bachmann-Beck interview]

Even though Findlaw.com and Senator Jim Rubens (R-NH) hold that “Natural born U.S. citizens may not have their citizenship revoked against their will” [Blog Editor: Rubens’ assertion], hasn’t one willingly abandoned their U.S. citizenship when they take up arms for an enemy of the U.S.?

 

One must certainly agree with Rep Bachmann, who made the following statement regarding her proposed legislation: “ISIS has declared the United States as their enemy. Once you join an enemy army … you should, by definition, lose your American citizenship, therefore your passport. You should have no ability to get back into the United States.”

 

But what about Obama’s open door policy? Isn’t this a severe national security breach and an impeachable offense?

 

According to Judicial Watch, intelligence officials believe a terrorist attack by ISIS and Al Qaeda, along the border between Juarez, Mexico and El Paso, Texas, is so imminent [Blog Editor: JW link] that Command Maj. Gen. Sean McFarland is being briefed at Ft Bliss. The DHS, Justice and Defense Dept. agencies have been placed on alert concerning this imminent threat and the mention of “car bombs and vehicle born improvised explosive devices.” [Blog Editor: NRO confirms]

 

What happens if the Islamic State acquires biological, chemical or nuclear weapon grade material?

 

Obama’s September 3rd message did not instill any further confidence that Obama and company would really do all that they could to ensure America’s national security, as Obama stated: “The primary U.S. objective is to degrade and destroy ISIS so that it’s no longer a threat not just to Iraq but also the region and to the United States.” This from the president whose policies created this crisis, who helped fund and arm ISIS from the beginning and who now says he will “shrink” ISIS “to the point where it is a manageable problem.” [Blog Editor: HERE, HERE & HERE]

 

Senator Roy Blunt (R-MO) angrily retorted, “Terrorists who behead Americans are not ‘manageable’. They must be stopped, and we need President Obama to communicate a clear strategy … on how he plans to eliminate this threat.” [Blog Editor: Blunt retort]

 

The American people’s determination to defeat this new terror threat from ISIS and terror in general from the Islamofascists everywhere should not be underestimated. Americans remember the more than 3000 dead or missing and countless more lives devastated, as pregnant widows were left behind and two thousand children lost a parent on 9/11. Americans recall the images of our Ambassador Chris Stevens being dragged through the streets of Benghazi. Our leaders must resolve that we will not wait until there is another 9/11 before we destroy the Islamic State murderers and scatter their ashes before us.

Exposing Obama Lies in ’13 Hours at Benghazi’


Benghazi Liars- Righteous look upon downfall

John R. Houk

© September 7, 2014

 

Fox News ran a special hosted by Bret Baier Friday night (9/5/14) called “13 Hours at Benghazi”. Just like it sounds the news special focuses on Benghazi but with the info from a group of Whistleblowers who were tasked to rescue the Benghazi State Department Mission or Consulate or whatever its official status was. The Fox News special repeated at least twice on Saturday and I believe it will repeat twice today on Sunday.

 

13 Hours at Benghazi” is based on a book of the same title by the Whistleblowers that refute the official State Department, CIA and Defense Department stipulation that no rescue assets were available to deliver the embattled Ambassador Stevens and the other three that went on their own volition to make a difference but were killed for their efforts by the Islamic terrorists that attacked the Consulate on another anniversary of 9/11 but in this case the year was 2012.

 

Now I saw on Fox News a State Department spokesperson reassert the official government line that there was no stand down order as the Whistleblowers claim. I got to tell you though, the Obama Administration has been obfuscating and caught lying in so many other scandals that I lean toward believing the Whistleblowers more than any denials that comes from ANYONE under the authority of the Obama Administration.

 

I found the entire Fox News special “13 Hours at Benghazi” on Youtube, but it is in five parts. Below is the first of those videos which will be followed by links to other the four parts.

I read a Facebook post on Justin Smith’s page goes over something he wrote on December 12, 2012 entitled “The Benghazi Betrayal”. Then he finishes with a Fox News promo video of the special entitled “13 Hours at Benghazi”. The Facebook post is an excerpt of that post which Justin links to the Counterjihad Report version of that title. Justin must feel that 13 Hours at Benghazi (NY Times book review) validated his analysis that Obama lied about Benghazigate.

 

Here is an excerpt of “The Benghazi Betrayal” that Justin had me post on my blog beginning with the paragraph that starts with “Obama lied to America. He did not issue any orders to …

 

Obama lied to America. He did not issue any orders to the CIA, our Armed Forces and the State Department to “secure our personnel” and “do whatever we need to do,” because if he had, it would have been done. Surely Panetta would have followed such an order from the President. And we also know that the CIA did not unilaterally decide to abandon Ambassador Stevens and the eight others with him; a CIA spokesman stated on October 27, “No one at any level in the CIA told anybody not to help those in need; claims to the contrary are simply inaccurate.”

As the evidence and the truth of events surrounding the Benghazi attacks unfolded, it became quite obvious that not only had Obama advanced a lie regarding a “spontaneous protest”, but he had also politicized the CIA’s response and enlisted CIA Director David Petraeus, National Intelligence Director James Clapper, UN Ambassador Susan Rice and many lesser officials, such as under-Secretary of State Charlene Lamb, in order to propagate the notion that ‘Innocence of Muslims’, an anti-Islam film, was the root cause of these attacks on the U.S. Consulate and the CIA Annex. Claire Lopez, a senior fellow at the Center for Security Policy, gives credible supporting facts that show the Obama administration intended to advance an Islamic agenda it had already endorsed, which centers on the implementation of the UN Resolution 16/18; this “resolution” was constructed by the Organization of Islamic Cooperation in order to criminalize the criticism of Islam in U.S. law and legal systems globally.

Prior to Muammar Gaddhafi’s ouster, many of us tried to warn the Obama administration that Gaddhafi was neutralizing the Islamic Maghreb, Al Qaeda, Ansar al-Shariah and other islamofascist terrorist groups in the region. Now Libya’s Transitional Council relies heavily on these same groups for security, even though many Libyans rallied against Ansar al-Shariah after Ambassador Stevens’ murder. The 17th of February militia that was guarding the U.S. Consulate is a splinter group of Ansar al-Shariah, which has ties to Al Qaeda.

Recently on December 6th, the New York Times finally reported some old news presented earlier in October 2012 by former CIA agent Claire Lopez. Ms Lopez’s account incredibly details the manner in which Obama released a known terrorist with close ties to Al Qaeda in Iraq, Abdul Hakin Belhaj, from U.S. custody at Guantanamo Bay. Belhaj entered Libya with Obama’s blessings and soon became the leader of Libyan rebel forces fighting Gaddhafi; the NYT’s piece shows that the U.S. furnished money and weapons through Qatar to support Libya’s rebel forces, and the Qataris subsequently provided training, money and weapons to the Libyan Islamic Fighting Group controlled by Abdul Hakim Belhaj. Many other jihadist groups received the same assistance.

Time and again, the world has witnessed Obama work with Al Qaeda linked militias and jihadists to overthrow Gaddhafi in Libya and now Assad in Syria, along with throwing Mubarak to the merciless wolves of the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt. And now, Americans see Obama’s policies backing Al Qaeda, the Muslim Brotherhood and the islamofascist jihadists across the Middle East who have pledged to implement Sharia law and reconstruct the Islamic Caliphate, due to large scale infiltration by Islamists/ Muslim Brotherhood operatives throughout every level of the U.S. government. Obama has accepted the “Muslim victimization” theories presented by the same islamofascists the U.S. has fought for decades.

Many Republicans, such as Senators Lindsey Graham, John McCain and Kelly Ayotte are incensed and alarmed by Obama’s handling of the actual attack on the U.S. Consulate at Benghazi, and they are outraged by the Obama administration’s outright lies in the aftermath of Benghazi. But not nearly enough on either side of the aisle in Congress or the Senate are willing to confront Obama on this issue in the most serious manner, yet.

Millions of Americans believe, just as retired Gen W.G. “Jerry” Boykin, retired Gen Paul Vallely and retired Gen Joe Stringham, that President Barack Obama meets the standards for impeachment for multiple reasons, especially those correlating to the Obama administration’s actions in Benghazi that constitute high crimes and misdemeanors, and many of us across the nation are calling for an independent investigation led by men and women of proven integrity, reputation for fairness and expertise in foreign affairs and national security protocols. And while impeachment proceedings may fail, since the Democrats hold a majority in the Senate, the Republicans must leave the coward’s path even if only for a symbolic act of courage, because Obama’s actions as a failed Commander-In-Chief led to a tragedy that by all indication was avoidable; as Obama fretted over his reelection and “the short term payoff exacting retribution on Al Qaeda”, four families were burying their loved ones and still Obama lied. There should be no indecision or hesitation whatsoever… the murders of Ambassador Stevens, FSO Sean Smith, CIA contractors and ex-Navy SEALs Glenn Dogherty (sic) and Tyrone Woods… the murders of these four brave Americans demands retaliation, retribution and a full account of the events prior to and after their deaths. Obama and his staff must be held responsible for their high crimes as Commander-In-Chief and accomplices, because all combined evidence makes it apparent that Obama, Biden, Panetta and Clinton allowed the U.S. Consulate at Benghazi to go down!

IRS Conducted “Secret Research Project” …


VIDEO: Obama Says “Not Even a Smidgen of Corruption” in IRS Scandal

 

This should be the last straw in Obama believability. If President Barack Hussein Obama’s lips are moving, you got to believe only that he is lying. Scandal after scandal keeps popping up and many cases new info is occurring about these scandals of deception by the Liar-in-chief and his Administration. This is particularly the case with the IRS. I heard some more info on probably the most powerful government agency as far as American citizens are concerned – the IRS – has mysteriously lost FIVE more IRS big dog IRS personnel emails. Now I just heard this on Fox News today so I am sure more details are forthcoming.  Yesterday ACLJ posted some more damning evidence of IRS duplicity as a tool of Obama’s assault on those of us that oppose his transformative agenda for America.

IRS Conducted “Secret Research Project” with Illegally Obtained Conservative Donor Lists

 

By Jordan Sekulow

Sep. 5, 2014 12:01 PM

American Center for Law and Justice

 

The latest dump of IRS emails provides further evidence of the nefarious and concerted effort within the IRS to target conservative groups.

 

In an email under the subject line “donor names,” then IRS acting director of Exempt Organizations Ruling and Agreements David Fish (who worked directly below Lois Lerner) discussed a “secret research project” with Holly Paz.

 

As the Wall Street Journal reports:

 

Perhaps the most intriguing of the new documents shows that IRS officials had some sort of “secret research project” going that related to the donor lists it had collected – inappropriately, as it turned out – from many conservative nonprofit groups.

 

The IRS demanded the donor lists in the course of reviewing dozens of conservative groups’ applications for tax-exempt status starting in 2010. An inspector general found in 2013 that the IRS targeted many of those conservative groups for improper scrutiny, including the demands for donor identities. . . .

 

If the project involved the IRS systematically targeting conservative donors for extra scrutiny too – as some GOP lawmakers suspect – that’s a very big deal.

 

That puts it mildly.

 

In fact, while that email doesn’t give many details about the “secret” program (after all it was a secret), it does state that a decision regarding the program and the donor lists reached all the way to then IRS Commissioner Steven Miller.

 

We know the IRS unconstitutionally targeted conservative groups.  We know they illegally demanded, obtained, and held the donor lists of these conservative organizations.  Now we learn that in 2012, the height of the targeting, the IRS was involved in a “secret research project” with this confidential, illegally obtained donor information.

 

That’s more than a big deal.  It’s potentially criminal.

 

The very fact that the IRS was using the phrase “secret research project” should give every American pause.  But the fact that this project was conducted as part of a well-orchestrated effort to target and silence conservative Americans is utterly disturbing.

 

There are several other incriminating emails revealed in the latest set of Lerner emails turned over to Judicial Watch as part of their ongoing FOIA lawsuit.

 

When the Treasury Inspector General was in the early stages of its audit in June 2012, Lerner demanded to be present when they wanted to speak with her deputy Holly Paz.  In a flurry of emails on the morning of June 28, 2012, Paz informed Lerner that the IG would be interviewing her.  Minutes later, Lerner shot back, “Not alone. Wait til I am there.”  When Paz explained it was in relation to a letter from House Ways and Means Committee Chairman Dave Camp regarding the targeting and not a Wall Street Journal article about a conservative group, Lerner responded, “Just as dangerous. I’ll talk to you soon. Be there in half hour.”

 

Congressional oversight is only “dangerous” when you have something to hide and are pushing a political agenda.

 

In fact, the IRS itself confirmed in internal emails the politically partisan nature of the IRS targeting.  The email from a senior technical advisor to Lerner under the subject line “Bucketed cases” provides, “Of the 199 (c)(4) cases, approximately 3/4 appear to be conservative leaning . . . .”  It also notes that a majority of the “(c)(3) cases” were “conservative leaning groups.”  This July 18, 2012 email came while the IG was conducting its audit into the IRS targeting.

 

These latest revelations only further confirm the well-orchestrated effort by the IRS to target and silence conservative Americans and then cover their tracks.  They also further show that the targeting reached higher and higher into the IRS.

 

The more we learn, the worse it gets.  As new questions are being raised into the scope of the targeting scandal, it is more important than ever for a Special Counsel to be appointed to investigate the IRS.

 

We continue to press forward with our lawsuit against the IRS on behalf of 41 targeted conservative and pro-life groups from 22 states, with a preliminary ruling on the Obama Justice Department’s attempts to have the case thrown out expected any day.

 

Join the demand for an independent investigator into the IRS targeting scandal by signing our petition for a Special Counsel today.
