Ever heard of Pastor Bob Roberts of Northwood Church of Keller, TX? Well I had not because I avoid reading circles of people that I am certain I will have a low opinion. Pastor Roberts hangs around a group of Evangelical leaders that tend to water down the Christian faith particularly the orthodox (for clarity – I am not writing of Eastern Orthodoxy) teachings of Biblical theology in which all divisions within Christianity have long agreed upon up until at least the 20th century.
So what do I consider Christian orthodoxy acceptable to all Christians?
Jesus Christ was born in the flesh from the Virgin Mary and the overshadowing of the Holy Spirit. Jesus Christ is God before His Virgin Birth as a man. So Jesus is both God and the Son of God. Jesus was crucified and died on the Cross to pay the debt of Adam’s sin. The Resurrection of Jesus in a flesh body Redeemed all of humanity that believe Jesus is the Son of God arisen in the flesh now glorified sitting at the Right Hand of the Father with the Promise of returning to Redeem the rest of Earth from the curse of Adam’s Fall. Now there is a lot more that I believe in the Ministry and Redemptive act of Jesus, but this is where Christians begin to diverge in their theology.
I can safely say that Catholics, Eastern Orthodox Believers and Protestants agree on the essentials of the articles of Faith which I just wrote. Even the Coptic Church – the largest Christian Church stuck under Islamic Supremacism – agrees with the above paragraph with a minor disagreement of the nature of Christ (a disagreement that was considered huge between Eastern [Greek] Orthodox and Copts in the days that Muslims conquered Egypt).
Pastor Bob Roberts has misapplied the Love of Christ to mean to fellowship with Muslims as brothers. We can agree that God so loved the world that He gave His only Son to Redeem all humanity. We can all agree that Jesus said to love your neighbor as yourself and the New Testament Epistles elaborate on this Golden Rule by calling Christians to honor all men (21st century political correctness: all men and women or all people). This would include people who are not Christians. Pastor Roberts takes this “honor all men” to the level of let’s fellowship as brothers with those that hate Christians and Jews; viz. Muslims.
Muslims that strive to live a harmonious life under their Allah might act on the thoughts that Islam is peace and that there is no compulsion of religion in Islam toward non-Muslims; however that is very divergent from their holy writings in the Quran and Hadith. In the Quran the Muslim doctrine of Abrogation allows Muslims to focus on the Quranic Suras that tell the Muslims to enslave non-Muslims under a life 2nd class domination under Islamic Supremacism (dhimmitude) or kill Christians and Jews for not submitting or converting.
You see the Quran has NO Golden Rule equivalent to the Biblical Golden Rule. The Quran is conquer, enslave or kill. The Bible is share the Good News of Jesus Christ so people can choose willingly to be Redeemed now or face damnation in the NEXT Life. The difference between Quran commands and Biblical New Testament commands are HUGE.
Muslims are either lying or ignorant of their own Quranic theology if they tell you this a non-Muslim deception. In Islamic theology the concept of duality actually allows for a Muslim to follow the peace and love Suras above the violent Suras that abrogate peace and love. The Islamic theology of duality: abrogated and non-abrogated Suras are both valid depending on the circumstance chosen by an Islamic authority such as a Mullah or Cleric or Islamic leader rather secular or theological. In Islam secular and theology are merged as one authority in advancing Jihad.
Muslims tell Westerners of the so-called Greater Jihad which is that internal struggle to live submitted to Allah. The historical reality is the so-called Lesser Jihad – Conversion by Conquest and humiliation – is the primary fashion that Islam spread throughout the Middle East, North Africa, India and parts of Europe. AND the so-called Lesser Jihad is what the modern purist Muslims desire to use to establish a modern Caliphate. These purist Muslims are identified to we Westerners as Radical Islam or Islamism today. The major concern should be for Westerners and Americans in particular is that Radical Islam can be identified as the Muslim Brotherhood network spread from Egypt and the Wahhabis of Saudi Arabia. There are other regions of the world that export their Radical Islam toward the West but they don’t quite have financial-political clout of the Muslim Brotherhood and Saudi Wahhabis.
Pastor Bob Roberts is not extending a hand of Christian friendship to Muslims that Multiculturalists identify as Moderate Islam that place more stock in the Islam is Peace portions of the Quran, rather Pastor Roberts are reaching out to Radical Islamic elements in the USA with direct linkage to the Muslim Brotherhood. If an American Muslim organization directly tied to the Muslim Brotherhood network or Saudi Wahhabi money they desire the destruction of American Constitutional law in which Religious Freedom and Free Speech is paramount. These Radical Muslim groups are also extremely anti-Semitic to the point that when they think no one is looking the Jew-Hatred oozes out calling for Jewish destruction.
Pastor Roberts has Church meeting giving Islam a Muslim moment in his Church which include speakers from the Islamic Society of North American (ISNA). ISNA seems to be networked by both the Muslim Brotherhood and Saudi Wahhabis.
Pastor Roberts is often heard using Muslim Brotherhood ideologue Yusuf al-Qaradawi in his build bridges with Islam thoughts:
“…one of the “key Islamic leaders” Roberts invokes is … Yusuf al-Qaradawi, a man who has praised Hitler, supports female genital mutilation, supported the fatwa calling for the assassination of writer Salman Rushdie and to top it all off, has called for a second Holocaust against the Jewish people!” (Snapshots a CAMERA blog; September 20, 2012 12:35 PM)
Pastor Roberts glories in knowing Professor John Esposito a man reputed as an expert in all thing Islam. Esposito refuses to condemn Radical Islam and blames Islamic terrorism as a pure response to American imperialistic colonialism. Esposito’s portrayal of Islam is idiotic denial of history and fans the hypocrisy that Islam is peace even while violence is globally widespread perpetrated by Muslims.
Esposito subscribes to the Edward Said school of thought, which holds that Middle Eastern attitudes toward Israel can never be understood from an “American colonialist perspective.” In other words, they should be viewed from the point of view of Israel’s alleged role as a base of American imperialism. Ignoring Hamas‘ program of creating an Islamic radical state to replace Israel – a genocidal agenda – Esposito has characterized the Palestinian terror group as a community-focused organization that, in addition to its violence, does a considerable amount of societal good via such productive activities as “honey [production], cheese-making, and home-based clothing manufacture.” He has likened Yasser Arafat’s calls for jihad to social initiatives for the launching of a “literacy campaign” or a “fight against AIDS.” He has called former professor Sami al-Arian, a terrorism-supporter with strong links to Palestinian Islamic Jihad, a “consummate professional.” (From John Esposito; Determine The Networks)
Pastor Roberts has spent time with Saudi Arabia’s former head of Intelligence Prince Turki-Al-Faisal. Pastor Roberts says this about the Saudi Prince:
He’s truly an exceptional man and a world leader par excellent! I wish we had 1,000 men like him spread out across the world – this world would be a much better place.
As head of Saudi Arabia’s Intelligence Prince Turki al-Faisal had an amenable relationship with Osama bin Laden and Mohammed Omar the one-eyed Mullah that ruled Taliban controlled Afghanistan. This relationship was not hostile. Later the Prince had become the Saudi Ambassador to the USA. The enigma with that is he promotes Wahhabism on one side but typically of many Saudi Royal Family members also displays a Western veneer with his public actions in the West.
The Balfour Post ran a story mentioning the Radical Muslims I just mentioned and a few others. Read an excerpt below:
Pastor Bob Roberts. Jr. is known for his efforts to build-bridges with Muslims. He spoke at the “Christ at the Checkpoint” conference put together by Palestinian Christians at Bethlehem Bible College. So did Florida Pastor Joel C. Hunter, who has been negative attention for his association with the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), a U.S. Muslim Brotherhood entity. Hunter is also critical of “Christian Zionists.”
An article posted on Hunter’s website reports how the “Christ at the Checkpoint” audience, including students from Wheaton and Eastern Universities, “were moved by the testimony of Palestinian men and women who shared the pain and suffering they experience on a daily basis caused primarily by the continuing occupation.”
Pastor Roberts reacted to the anti-Islam Innocence of Muslims video by suggesting that governments crack down on its distribution. He said, “There is a ‘clear and present’ danger the U.S. courts have ruled in regard to freedom of speech—I think that has to extend globally.”
In January, NorthWood Church hosted Azhar Azeez, Vice President of the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA). ISNA is an unindicted co-conspirator in a major terrorism-financing trial. Federal prosecutors labeled ISNA a U.S. Muslim Brotherhood entity, a fact confirmed by the Brotherhood’s own secret documents.
In November, his church’s Global Faith Forum will bring the spotlight to his interfaith efforts and those involved in them. Event speakers include Rep. Kay Graner (R-TX), former South Carolina Governor David Beasley and Christianity Today editor Mark Galli, but they aren’t the main attractions.
The conference website’s home page proudly advertises Prince Turki al-Faisal, Saudi Arabia’s ambassador to the U.S. from 2005 to 2007, as a main speaker. Before that, he was the Saudi foreign intelligence chief from 1977 to 2001, making him a top figure in Saudi Arabia’s proliferation of Wahhabism around the world for over 20 years. He represented a Sharia-based government that persecutes Christians.
Faisal Bin Muammar was an advisor at the Saudi Royal Court and Secretary-General of the Riyadh-based King Abdul Aziz Center for National Dialogue.
Safi Kaskas is a co-founder of East West University in Chicago and a “strategy consultant for a number of business organizations in the USA and Saudi Arabia.” He is a member of the Association of Muslim Social Scientists. A 1991 U.S. Muslim Brotherhood memo identifies AMSS as one of “our organizations and the organizations of our friends.” The memo says its “work in America is a kind of grand jihad in eliminating and destroying the Western civilization from within.” The AMSS is also closely linked to the International Institute of Islamic Thought.
Another main speaker is Professor John Esposito, one of the top non-Muslim supporters of the U.S. Muslim Brotherhood network. He is a frequent guest speaker at their events and was a witness for the defense in the trial of the Holy Land Foundation.
The aforementioned Azhar Azeez is again speaking. He is the Vice President of ISNA and has been on its Executive Council since 2002. He is also the senior National Director of Islamic Relief USA, a charity linked to the Muslim Brotherhood.
Wadah Khanfar was the director-general of Al-Jazeera from 2006 to 2011. Al-Jazeera’s extremism is well-documented. The Arabic station even gives Muslim Brotherhood spiritual leader Yousef al-Qaradawi a weekly show.

“Pseudo-Christian” Pastor From Texas Mega-Church Partners With the Muslim Brotherhood

On June 9, the Clarion Project reported that the U.S. envoy to the Organization of Islamic Cooperation will be speaking at an Islamic Society of North America (ISNA) regional conference, sharing the stage with at least three Islamists. But there are some other featured guests: ISNA’s interfaith allies, including Pastor Bob Roberts of NorthWood Church in Texas.
ISNA is identified in a 1991 U.S. Muslim Brotherhood memorandum as one of its fronts. The U.S. government also listed ISNA as a U.S. Muslim Brotherhood entity when it designated the group an unindicted co-conspirator in the Hamas-financing trial of the Holy Land Foundation. The so-called “charity” was another U.S. Muslim Brotherhood entity that, in the words of Judge Jorge Solis, “operated from within ISNA.” ISNA denies it has “ever been subject to the control of…the Muslim Brotherhood.”
ISNA’s South Central Conference will be held in Dallas on June 15. The event will feature an interfaith panel that includes its Community Outreach Director, Mohamed Elsanousi, who attended a Muslim Brotherhood-linked conference in Mauritania last year.
Other participants include Rabbi Joshua S. Taub of Temple Emanuel and Cristina Warner, the Campaign Director of the Shoulder-to-Shoulder Campaign, an ISNA-allied interfaith coalition. ISNA is so proud of Shoulder-to-Shoulder that its success was a top talking point of senior officials when they met with the Islamist Prime Minister of Turkey.
The most high-profile interfaith speaker at the ISNA regional conference is Pastor Bob Roberts of NorthWood Church, a critic of “Christian Zionists.” As reported last month, Pastor Roberts’ NorthWood Church is holding its own Islamist-stocked interfaith event called the Global Faith Forum in November. Pastor Roberts’ speakers include ISNA officials, former senior Saudi officials and a former director-general of Al-Jazeera.
The Clarion Project’s original article on the event provides insight into some of the fellow speakers of Pastor Roberts, Rabbi Taub and Cristina Warner.
The keynote speaker is Dr. Jamal Badawi, who will also be on panels about Sharia and having a healthy family. His record includes praise for Hamas, “combative jihad,” and justifying the physical disciplining of wives (or, as he says, “a gentle tap on the body” for disobedience). His name also appears in a U.S. Muslim Brotherhood phonebook from 1992 and he hangs out with Brotherhood spiritual leader Yousef al-Qaradawi. The radicalism of his resume is strong enough to prompt counter-terrorism expert Patrick Poole to ask, “Why is Jamal Badawi Still Allowed into the United States?”
ISNA official Yusuf Ziya Kavakci will be handling the opening remarks, leading a prayer and joining Badawi for the panel on Sharia. He used to lead a mosque that an article in 1999 said “is considered to be one of the most active centers of Hamas activity in the United States[.]” The mosque was linked to the Holy Land Foundation, the aforementioned U.S. Muslim Brotherhood entity that was housed by ISNA and shut down for financing Hamas.
The notorious Imam Siraj Wahhaj is listed as an invited speaker at the event. His radicalism is unquestionable. He has preached that “America is the most wicked government on the face of the planet Earth.” America, he told his audience, is a “garbage can” that he prays “crumbles.” Unlike some Islamists, he doesn’t hide his desire for Sharia Law in America.
“If only Muslims were clever politically, they could take over the United States and replace its constitutional government with a caliphate. If we were united and strong, we’d elect our own emir and give allegiance to him. Take my word, if eight million Muslims unite in America, the country will come to us,” he said.
The book Muslim Mafia quotes Wahhaj even condoning violence. “We don’t need to arm the people with 9mms and Uzis. You need to arm them with righteousness first. And once you arm them with righteousness first, then you can arm them,” he said, as well as “I will never tell people, ‘Don’t be violent.’ That’s not the Islamic way.”
Wahhaj’s rhetoric lines right up with the private words of the U.S. Muslim Brotherhood. The 1991 memorandum that identified ISNA as one of its fronts said its “work in America is a kind of grand jihad in eliminating and destroying the Western civilization from within.”
Page 21 of the document states: “[W]e must possess a mastery of the art of ‘coalitions’, the art of ‘absorption’ and the principles of ‘cooperation.’” That is the context that ISNA’s interfaith alliances need to be put in.
After my last article on NorthWood Church was published, a reader emailed me to say that he posted it to the Facebook page of the church and the personal page of Pastor Roberts. It didn’t take long for it to be deleted. Ignorance is no longer an excuse.

…in a word, that is what sharia unveiled is about.
sharia unveiled is committed to seeking and sharing the truth. In all things, there is only one truth. There is no “middle ground” in truth. There is no “compromise” in truth and there is no “tolerance” in truth. There is no “leuke warm” in truth. There are no “grey areas” in truth. Truth is black and white. Wrong or Right. There is truth and everything else is just a lie.
We live in this world although we are not of it.
We live in a world of darkness, lies and deception. We live in a world that protects, defends and rewards those who lie. Why? Primarily due to the fact that faith is being forced out of the world and evil is being invited in. When we force God out essentially, we are creating a vacuum in society. We are creating a void of empty space and the natural tendency is for that space to be filled. The door has been left open and evil has been invited in. Evil comes in many forms although rarely does it present itself as evil. In most cases, it hides itself beneath a cloak of deception and a pretty name. Sometimes evil even hides beneath the facade of “Peace and Love.”
We are dedicated to human rights.
sharia unveiled is absolutely and unequivocally devoted to the protection and defense of human rights. There are many areas of human rights violations in the world today. Unfortunately, there are too many for any one person or group to be able to focus on them all. We pledge to focus on … Read the Rest
I follow Bill Warner’s blog Political Islam. Just as the blog’s name suggests theme is exposing Islam as a religion that is more ideologically political than it is theologically religious. It is this reality that Muslim Clerics and Mullahs do not want you the kafir (Islam for non-Muslim) to know about. This is especially the case in America in our First Amendment protects Religious Freedom. If Americans ever caught on that Islam is a basically a political ideology of Supremacist Hegemonic Domination, Muslims that are purist (aka Radical Islam or Islamist or Salafist) realize that American voters would begin voting for Congressmen and Senators to protect the Constitution from Political Islam.
Consider this an introduction to Bill Warner’s post “Humor-gate in Manchester”.
Humor-gate in Manchester
By Bill Warner
June 6, 2013
On June 4 the FBI and DOJ (Department of Justice) appeared at a meeting called by AMAC (American Muslim Advisory Council — Muslim Brotherhood) in Manchester, TN. The meeting was due to a joke posted by a Coffee County Commissioner on Face Book. The DOJ Assistant Attorney General said in a newspaper interview that the joke might be classified as hate speech and a crime. Below is a political leaflet handed out to the over a thousand attendees at the meeting. (A note: there are only 10,000 people who live in Manchester, TN)
This event which uses the full Federal powers of the corrupt Department of Justice to suppress free speech and shape domestic politics will not be the last. The DOJ is now a full partner with the Muslim Brotherhood.
Fast and Furious, Benghazi-gate, DOJ Reporter-gate,
IRS Suppression of Free Speech and now—
Humor-gate, Free Speech Intimidation in Manchester TN
Why has Obama shaped law enforcement into agencies of intimidation of our political speech? It all starts with the OIC (Organization of Islamic Cooperation) in the UN with Resolution 16/18 that criminalizes any criticism of Islam since it blasphemes Islam. Blasphemy punishment is pure Sharia law. There is NO free speech in Islam, since it does not allow any criticism of Islam. Hillary Clinton, as Secretary of State, worked for 3 days in NY with the OIC to find a way to accommodate Islamic blasphemy and slander laws in America. Tonight is the fruit of that labor.
Government agencies are trained about Islam according to Muslim Brotherhood standards. They are taught that Islam is a religion and that Muslims are just like everybody else. It is forbidden to discuss Islam as a political system. Language is controlled and jihad doctrine cannot be used in the analysis of Islamic violence.
Look at tonight’s event. The AMAC (American Muslim Advisory Council) is a political group and this meeting is political, yet the government gives all Islamic politics the cover of religion. Religious Islam disguises political Islam and tries to enforce Sharia law.
You will be told tonight that the problem with Muslims in America is how they are victims of bigoted oppression. Victimhood is a feature of Islam. Mohammed was portrayed as a victim, without any fault. Therefore, Islam is without fault and Muslims are victims. As an example, on 9/11 Muslims were the real victims, because it made some Americans criticize Muslims and Islam.
The movie shown here tonight, Welcome to Shelbyville, is pure propaganda. Why don’t they show the fact-based film, Losing Our Sons? According to our government, a joke about Muslims is a more serious problem than Carlos Bledsoe (Abdulhakim Mujahid Muhammad) attempting to assassinate a rabbi here in Tennessee and his murder of our military in Arkansas. Did you know that there are no jokes about Mohammed in 1400 years? Political humor such as the Mohammed cartoons can result in riots and death. In America we can tell jokes such as Jesus, Tiger Woods and Moses are playing golf…. But, can we tell a joke about Mohammed and Aisha playing golf…? Not if it offends Muslims.
When Coffee County Commissioner Barry West posted his political satire on Face Book he found out that Islam never changes. Humor about anything Islamic has been forbidden by Sharia law for 1400 years, and it will not be tolerated now. The dhimmis (Kafirs, non-Muslims, who serve Islam) rush forward to placate a humorless Islam. This is all about the Islamists making a molehill out of a mountain.
This night is an example of how Obama’s Federal government is suppressing critical thought and forcing us to submit to an Orwellian authority. Facts are bigotry. Truth is hate.

The homosexual debauchery that has taken place for sixteen years was canceled this year due to road construction. Evidently the area for the annual Folsom Street East outdoor festival in which homosexuals gather together to participate with lewd vendors and homosexual sex acts including the leathers that homosexuals flaunt in their so-called pride efforts to be free to do whatever they want even though it is horrifically immoral was canceled because complaints were forthcoming from last year’s events. In recent years there has been a code of conduct which can read in this photo from 2010 which included no public sex acts; however with no real accountability that conduct policy was enforced very loosely:
• No public sexual activity
• No complete public nudity
• No exposure of genitals
• Alcohol is restricted to designated areas only, consumed by adults 21+
• Adequate space must be cleared and prior consent must be given by all participants in any demo or “scene.”
• No demo or “scene” involving blood or other fluids will be permitted, even with consent.
Our contact also indicated that, although these limits represented NYC statutes, they were never enforced in the past. (From Folsom Street East Perversion Light 2010; By John R. Houk; SlantRight 2.0; 6/25/2010)
Here is a link of the debauchery of Folsom Street East 2012 by a pro-homosexual website – Warning Disturbing:
Another Warning – Here are a couple of the explicit photos from the above link:
Now tell me this is not disgusting, right?!
The thing about finding out about the canceling of Folsom Street East 2013 is that luxury seems to be disenchanted with public homosexuality. The non-profit organization that is Folsom Street East simply tells us the cancellation is due to road construction as that is a mere glitch of the last sixteen years. The reality is luxurious buildings that are trendy hotels, restaurants and condos are encroaching on the fringe homosexual district of Manhattan. The sad thing most of the information about the canceled event I found via Google was from either pro-homosexual websites or Leftist critics of the cancellation.
Frankly I can’t vouch if this search engine availability is because Google is making sure pro-homosexual information occurs about Folsom Street East searches or if Pro-Family and Pro-Christian Moral Values organizations have dropped the ball on exploiting this story.
Shame on Google if they are skewing search engine results or shame on Pro-Family/Pro-Christian Moral Values organizations if they dropped the ball or shame on both if these thoughts on search engines and the Conservative-Christian Right are valid accusations.
Here are excerpts from two pro-homosexual sources on the closing of Folsom Street East (Hat Tip: Solid Snake):
For most of its 16 years, Folsom East was surrounded by industrial sites and strip clubs. But a recent construction boom brought residential buildings to the far-flung block between 10th and 11th avenues.
Named after the legendary Folsom Street Fair in San Francisco, the party usually draws thousands of visitors and raises money for LGBT-related charitable causes.
In addition to the +aRt condo, where residents already live, construction on the two-building, 710-unit Avalon West Chelsea is also underway, which will eventually bring a 31-story tower and 13-story building to the block.
The changing dynamic already affected last year’s festival — when some residents of the +aRt building complained about being “embarrassed” by the kinky revelers, leading organizers to construct a sidewalk corridor allowing residents to get to their homes without walking through Folsom East itself.
The message on Folsom East’s website assured fetish-lovers that the festival would return, though it was unclear if it would be on the same block.
“Thanks for 16 great years celebrating sexual freedom with the Folsom Street East Street Festival and we hope to see you back on the kinky streets of New York City in 2014!” the site reads.
A spokeswoman for Folsom East did not immediately respond to requests for comment. (Folsom East Fetish Festival Canceled Due to Construction; By Mathew Katz; DNAinfo New York; April 23, 2013 10:09 am)
With the twin blows yesterday of hearing that both Folsom Street East and Fleet Week have been cancelled this year (really, what are we going to do during June?) here’s a bit of a respite.
Fil Vocasek, the board chairmen of Folsom Street East, says that the organization is attempting to plan a number of fetish-themed events throughout the month of June which will take the form of smaller, indoor parties at various venues. The main event was cancelled this year due to construction on 28th Street.
“We’re in conversation with other groups and organizations to make sure there are a lot of fetish, kinky things going on in the month of June,” Vocasek tells DNAinfo.
Folsom Street East’s cancellation came after the closing of the popular fetish and leather bar, Rawhide last month. That site, however, may be staying true to it’s gay bar roots.
Though the advertisement outside of the old Rawhide on Eighth Avenue describes the “corner restaurant/retail space for lease,” the agent behind the listing suggests that another gay bar or club may be taking over the reins from the popular leather bar that closed March 30.
JD Sutro, a broker of Lee & Associates says “A lot of people know the history, everyone knows Rawhide, so we’ve gotten a lot of calls looking to open up another men’s bar or another restaurant that supplements the area.” (Folsom Street East planning smaller events throughout June in lieu of cancelled street fair; By Will Pulos; Next Magazine; April 25, 2013)
Below is an excerpt from a homosexual friendly author that provides more detail about the resident’s perspective on the Folsom Street East:
New Yorkers have mixed feelings about the High Line. Sure, it’s popular enough to make other cities jealous. But it’s kind of out of the way and, damningly, overrun by tourists. It’s also long been the object of ire from long-time residents suspicious of Bloombergian development, who find it a little too … manicured. It’s a project that makes New Yorkers face up to the question of what sort of city they want to live in — one that’s exciting, but little bit rougher around the edges, or one that’s safe but maybe a little bit tame? And that contrast has never been as stark as now, when High Line-related construction is conflicting with a kinky sex parade.
Jeremiah Moss, a blogger who’s solidly on the side of the older, rougher city, writes that the construction of fancy buildings in the High Line’s neighborhood has led to the cancellation of an old and dear ritual: the Folsom Street East street festival, “the largest outdoor fetish street festival on the easter coast, which brings thousands of sexy kinksters out onto the streets of New York City on a summer afternoon to celebrate sexual diversity and expression.”
Perhaps this is a sign that whatever kinky culture is left in New York has simply moved to a more outer borough. But perhaps shiny, modern cities can’t be safe for tourists, gentrifiers, and sexy kinksters at the same time. For efficiency reasons, it’s quite desirable for more people to live in cities, but it’s important to make sure there’s room not just for people who want to spend $4 on hibiscus ice pops but for people who’d rather spend their money on horse-tail buttplugs. (New York has to choose between its High Line and its kinky sex parades; By Sarah Laskow; Grist; 23 Apr 2013 12:18 PM)
You see the problem I have in relying on news sources that favor moral corruption is there is no perspective from the residents expanding into the 28th Street area of Manhattan where homosexual debaucheries take place. The Pro-Homo sources dare not mention that some-many-most of the residents’ view of homosexual acts as something more than inappropriate. Could some-many-most view open homosexuality as morally repugnant?
This is the point at which Pro-Family/Conservative-Christian groups have dropped the ball. Someone needs to investigate the percentage of the complaining residents are willing to eschew political correctness and let the world know they have a Christian Moral conflict with the homosexual lifestyle in their front and backyard. Send the Catholic pro-morality investigators to the Catholics and send the Protestant pro-morality investigators to the Protestants. OR here is a true ecumenical idea: This is a time for pro-morality Catholics and Protestants can come together on to investigate AND to promote Christian Morality in the area.
I say “true ecumenical” because the current ecumenical movement tends to be Liberal factions of Catholic, Eastern Orthodox and Protestants unifying on a social activism agenda which tends to be pro-homosexual and to be neutering the Word of God in which Christ’s Divinity, Crucifixion and Sonship are theologically questioned because the Bible does not line up with Modernist philosophy which leans toward secularizing society and abandoning the Creator of all that exists as presented in the Holy Bible. A true ecumenism would be Bible Believing Christians (or on the Catholic-Eastern Orthodox side the Conservative Believing traditionalists) can stand together to jointly affirm Christian Morality.

This article is a little difficult to read in my opinion; nonetheless the message is clear. A German got himself in hot water over going public that the non-German immigrants of the Turkish and Arab persuasion are increasing via the birthrate exponentially enough to overtake the homegrown European Germanic culture. And as that immigration population grows they are the ones that tend to live on the German government welfare.
That German is Thilo Sarrazin who has been a prominent German politician and now an important Executive Board Member of the German Bundesbank which is the central bank of the Federal Republic of Germany and as such part of the European System of Central Banks (ESCB).
Evidently Sarrazin is both controversial and popular in Germany because of this book he wrote in 2010 which in English is rendered “Germany Abolishes Itself: How We Are Risking Our Country”. (I noticed Wikipedia has a different translation of this title: “Germany Is Doing Away With Itself”.)
This article is entitled “UN Pressures Germany to Bow to ‘Hate Speech’ Hysteria”. Evidently an agency of the United Nations the Committee on the Elimination of Racial Discrimination (CERD) is the anti-Free Speech agenda to squash opinions such as those presented by Thilo Sarrazin. Here is an excerpt of the CERD mission from its website:
The Committee on the Elimination of Racial Discrimination (CERD) is the body of independent experts that monitors implementation of the Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Racial Discrimination by its State parties.
All States parties are obliged to submit regular reports to the Committee on how the rights are being implemented. States must report initially one year after acceding to the Convention and then every two years. The Committee examines each report and addresses its concerns and recommendations to the State party in the form of “concluding observations”.
In addition to the reporting procedure, the Convention establishes three other mechanisms through which the Committee performs its monitoring functions: the early-warning procedure, the examination of inter-state complaints and the examination of individual complaints.
The Committee meets in Geneva and normally holds two sessions per year consisting of three weeks each.
The Committee also publishes its interpretation of the content of human rights provisions, known as general recommendations (or general comments), on thematic issues and organizes thematic discussions.
For more information about the work of the Committee on the Elimination of Racial Discrimination, click here.
The CERD decision placing pressure on the German government is 19 pages. You can read the entire pdf English translation document; however I think you can get the gist of how the U.N. is imposing Free Speech suppression according to how Americans view Free Speech from this small excerpt:
3.3 The petitioner argues that since Mr. Sarrazin is the former Finance Senator of the Berlin Senate and member of the Board of Directors of the German Central Bank, his authority leads to the perception that his statements are based on proven facts and, therefore, “the truth”. It adds that the effects of Mr. Sarrazin’s statements enhance prejudices of the majority towards the Turkish population and individuals of Turkish heritage, including their children. The petitioner submits that such racially discriminatory statements are not covered by the right to freedom of expression because the concerned group has a right to live without prejudices and general intolerance, and the freedom to exercise their rights should be respected. The statements made by Mr. Sarrazin should be assessed in the framework of the special social context of Germany, adding to the general pattern of incitement to racial hatred against the Turkish population, which in the circumstances can be even more dangerous than openly flaunted racism, which is easier to combat. With the termination of the investigation against Mr. Sarrazin, the petitioner claims that it was arbitrarily denied protection against racially discriminatory statements directed against it as a group of individuals of Turkish heritage and as the representative of this group and the propagation thereof represents a violation of articles 2 (1 (d), 4, (a) and 6.
So here’s the thing. The U.N.’s CERD is forcing Germany to comply with the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) to prohibit all forms of criticism of Islam which is responsible for most of the world’s global terrorism.
Oops! I just violated U.N.’s campaign to protect Islam. Oh well, I’ll get over it.
The Mainstream Media including Fox News is in the tank in favor of the godless Homosexual agenda to pervert Biblical Morals to support the validity of homosexuality as normal. Check out this recent WND article that begins with a focus on NBC news journalist Contessa Brewer but elaborates on a fund raiser for National Lesbian & Gay Journalists Association. One of the surprising sponsors for me was Fox News which usually is a voice for the Conservative perspective in a sea of committed Leftist journalism.
Kincaid then dropped the hammer when he said what the real agenda of the NLGJA is:
Let us be clear: the National Lesbian & Gay Journalists Association is a special interest group that manipulates news coverage on behalf of the homosexual movement, and they brag about their successes. Their website boasts how the Associated Press has just released a statement announcing a new AP Stylebook entry for husband and wife, “coming after a requested revision by NLGJA.”
Thanks to NLGJA’s “Rapid Response Task Force,” AP will now use the terms husband and wife, without quotes, when referring to two men or two women in same-sex marriages. In other words, a man can be a wife, and a woman can be a husband. (Excerpted from: Fox News Helps Fund The Homosexual Agenda; by Tim Brown; Freedom Outpost, 3/23/13; READ ENTIRITY)
News anchor: ‘Gay marriage’ critics are racist
‘I think that there’s a difference between being objective and being fair’
By Garth Kant
March 26, 2013
WND Video Graphic of article:
As the U.S. Supreme Court hears arguments two key same-sex marriage cases, a prominent member of the establishment media already is delivering her own verdict.
She made the comments at a fundraiser held Thursday night by the National Lesbian & Gay Journalists Association in New York City.
Peter LaBarbera of Americans For Truth asked Brewer if she had considered that the media may not be giving fair coverage to opponents of” same-sex marriage.
“You know what’s so funny about this? When we’re talking about racism, nobody ever says, ‘Do you think there’s fair coverage for racists?’ That’s my feeling about the matter. I think that there’s a difference between being objective and being fair. And sometimes wrong is wrong, and the right thing to do is say when it’s wrong,” she replied.
LaBarbera countered: “A lot of Christians, for example, think that racism is a sin, but they also think that homosexuality [is a sin].”
Brewer responded: “You know what I say? I grew up as the daughter of a Baptist preacher, and you know what my answer always is? If you think it’s wrong, then don’t do it. Thank you.”
She promptly walked away.
Brewer is a former MSNBC anchor who now hosts a weekend show on the cable network, regularly contributes to NBC and recently joined New York’s WNBC as an anchor.
Also attending the fundraiser were Matt Lauer and Savannah Guthrie of NBC, Gayle King of CBS News, Christine Romans of CNN, Amy Robach of ABC News and Amanda Drury of CNBC.
NLGJA says the event was sponsored by NBCUniversal, Bloomberg, CNN, CBS News, Fox News, the New York Times, Newsday, BuzzFeed, Newsday, Voli Light Vodka, Heineken, JetBlue, Hillshire, Eli Lilly and Company, General Motors, GPTMC and Fleishman-Hillard.
“We are not an advocacy group,” said NLGJA president Jen Christensen of CNN.
“But the entire evening was advocacy. There was no pretense of being even-handed in covering the homosexual rights movement, of which they are clearly a major part,” said Cliff Kincaid of Accuracy in Media and America’s Survival, who covered the event.
“This was not just an event where journalists ‘came out of the closet’ for homosexual rights; it was a fundraiser for the cause. Our media paid big money to participate as sponsors and hosts,” added Kincaid, who videotaped the exchange between Brewer and LaBarbera.
Kincaid has written a letter to Fox News CEO Roger Ailes questioning Fox’s “funding of the homosexual rights movement.”
Natalie Morales of the NBC “Today” show hosted the event and described the establishment media’s treatment of “gay” issues.
“Many of us here in this room – the media – we are responsible for opening the world’s eyes to these issues and the stories that have brought about such change,” she told the crowd.
“When you think 18 years ago when this organization was founded – think of where the country was back then. And now, 50 percent – according to the Pew poll that we talked about on the news today – support gay marriage, and … some other polls put that number even higher. [This] reflects a change in attitudes in this country.”
Morales noted numerous developments in just the past year, including “the repeal of the military’s ban on gays and lesbians, the widening support for same-sex marriage.”
“The world seems to be evolving slowly but surely – from the president changing his position [on same-sex marriage] last year, to most recently this week … former Secretary [of State Hillary] Clinton now saying gays and lesbians are full and equal citizens and deserve the rights of citizenship. And last week of course Republican Senator Rob Portman said he now supports gay marriage because he wants his son, who is gay, to have the same rights to love equally. I mean this of course is 2013 but it is happening,” she said.
LaBarbera asked Morales: “If you disagree with homosexuality – you’re in a league with racists … if you disagree about gay marriage, disagree about fundamental issues surrounding homosexuality – do you agree with that view?”
Morales replied: “I think what’s happening here is this is a new civil rights movement. I mean I think clearly … I believe that gays have as much equal opportunity as we all should have. And I believe that they should be allowed to get married and love equally … But I don’t think everyone else has to believe how we believe. … I think there is a freedom of speech in this country and a freedom of free thought.”
There may be two sides to the story, but Brewer indicated which side she prefers. Before speaking with LaBarbera, she told the celebrity gossip TV show “Extra,” “I think it’s so important to embrace equality … and I’ve been a strong supporter of gay rights, same-sex marriage and privacy – politicians on both sides of the aisle [are] finally coming out and saying what should have been said decades ago: that everyone has the right to love who they choose and marry who they choose.”
Kincaid observed: “The nature of the bias is evident for everyone to see, however, the bias will take another turn, as journalists will ignore the evidence that the major media have taken one side of the debate. What is significant is the lack of any real major media opposition to this bias.
“Even though this event featured all kinds of media celebrities, you will not find the media reporting on themselves, because it would blow their cover – and blow the whistle on the bias they are implementing on a day-to-day basis,” he wrote.
LaBarbera said, “This event, like previous ones I had attended, had a ‘gay advocacy’ rather than journalistic feel to it.
“Past NLGJA events have featured homosexual journalists — including some working for major media outlets –denigrating pro-family opponents of ‘gay rights,’ and making analogies between covering them and covering hateful racists much like Brewer’s tendentious claim,” he added.
“It should be noted that many advocates of homosexual ‘marriage’ and other aspects of ‘gay rights’ – both homosexuals and non-homosexuals alike — reject this extreme characterization of pro-family voices,” LaBarbera observed.
Both Morales and Gayle King, co-host of “CBS This Morning” and close friend of Oprah Winfrey, told him “they dispute the idea that opponents of homosexual activism and same-sex marriage are in a league with racists, as Brewer alleged.”
But in her remarks Thursday, Morales did indicate the event was linked to political developments.
“We are at a turning point. I mean could this event be more perfectly timed? … Next week the Supreme Court will start to hear arguments on two major cases addressing gay rights: of course Proposition 8 (California law), and the Defense of Marriage Act. This is an issue at the forefront of our nation’s collective conscience right now, and making headlines all over the world,” she noted.
The Supreme Court heard arguments today on the constitutionality of California’s Proposition 8, which defines in the state constitution marriage as a relationship between one man and one woman. Tomorrow, the court will consider the 1996 Defense of Marriage Act, which forbids the federal government from recognizing same-sex marriages.

A few days ago Tea Party journalist Scottie Hughes was critical of Sarah Palin after her CPAC speech as being a rousing speaker but lacking in Conservative work to get the ball moving on a Conservative agenda to offset America’s Leftists.
An Open Letter to Sarah Palin
You are beginning to worry me. I am afraid you are losing touch with the people of whom your fame is based. I, after all, was one of your biggest supporters once. I am thrilled that you get invitations to go to NBA games, that you display your Chick-fil-A shirt, and that you go and support your daughter and her celebrity friends on Dancing with the Stars.
But at CPAC last week you made a rush for the exits. After you gave an inspiring speech where you said to a thrilled audience, “At a time when our country is desperate for leadership, we get instead a permanent campaign”. Instead of coming out and shaking the hands of those who you inspire, you quickly left the building without even a second glance.
You called out the liberal media as being unashamed, so at least you took notice of them. Not so for those of us on the right who had hoped that the woman from Wasilla, Alaska might understand our plight and give us a chance to engage one of the top names in the movement.
We were, to put it bluntly, disappointed. And while I wish this was a solo occurrence, unfortunately this seems to be your pattern.
I know we in the Tea Party movement don’t throw the best parties or live the most glamorous lives, but we are the ones who faithfully donated to the McCain campaign once you joined the ticket. We are the ones who defended you publicly when the liberal media made fun of you and when your own campaign advisors turned on you. We are the ones who add you and your family to our prayers every night at bedtime.
Yet it seems those in Hollywood who have made their money making you the butt of their jokes get more of your attention than the movement you helped inspire.
As a working mother in political journalism, I always looked to your journey as a source of inspiration. It was a testament to the fact that a woman can use her professional talents and not let her family suffer. The other side wants to make female conservatives feel like we are put in binders and … READ THE REST
Has Hughes been looking at the same Sarah Palin I have been look at? Palin has gone to Tea Party rallies and campaign stumped for Conservative pro-Tea Party plenty! My only disappoint with Sarah Palin was her decision to not run for the Office of President. I have no doubt that decision was based on the negative attacks by Establishment Republicans. The most notable of those Establishment Republicans was (and is) Karl Rove.
Let’s face it. Although the electorate power base of the Republican Party are Conservatives and of those on the Right it is the grassroots oriented Tea Partiers. BUT those who pull the finance strings in the Republican Party is the GOP’s version of Pharisees that favor a more Liberal Social Conservatism and leans toward Crony Capitalism rather than little guy entrepreneurship.
Sarah Palin was run out of the Governorship of Alaska because State Dems and Crony Capitalist Republicans constantly were inventing ethics violations to the absurd to prevent Palin from performing her Executive duties as Governor. I believe it is a good guess that she saw the Alaskan subservience to Establishment Republicans would be amplified against on a national basis with the Leftist Palin-hating Mainstream Media propagandizing against her message by obfuscating the honor of her personal life.
Instead of a fractured Tea Party splitting the Tea Party with hurt feelings for not getting the personal attention a prominent Tea Partier feels she deserves, it is no reason to make unsubstantiated complaints as if it was Left Wing propaganda.
RATHER prominent Tea Party leadership needs to unite and find a candidate like Sarah Palin that has a national message of American Exceptionalism, Constitutional Patriotism and Judeo-Christian Morality and stand up against Dems and Establishment Republicans as well as against the activism of the MSM Left.
So what if such a stand is not politically correct! In today’s world who defines political correctness? It is Leftists and RINOs. It is time to change the definers of political correctness.
Today it is politically incorrect to think outside of the Two-Party to replace one of the two prominent political parties. As the Republicans replaced the Whigs in the 1850s to eventually elect Abraham Lincoln in 1860, it is time for the Tea Party Movement to coalesce and find a political name representative of Conservative Tea Partiers.
In the 1850s the Abolitionist Movement was considered a fringe grassroots movement. The Dems, MSM and Establishment Republicans consider the Tea Party to be a fringe grassroots movement that will play itself out. Establishment Republicans envision the Conservative Tea Party base will catapult the GOP back into driver’s seat of both Houses in Congress. In that envisionment Establishment Republicans intend to minimize Tea Party to stop the Leftist fringe of the Dems and bring a middle road political agenda that benefits the Center-Left socially and the Crony Capitalist corporate big business elites on the Center-Right.
Just because Center-Left and Center-Right sounds like a moderate path it does not mean a beneficent path for American culture.
The Leftist end of the scale is godless in values and humanistic in a moral foundation for the rule of law. The far Right end of the scale exploits religion for personal ideological gain and is oppressive to be beneficent to the corporate elite; i.e. Crony Capitalism on the backs of citizens squashing the entrepreneurial spirit of the average American to carve out a self-sustaining niche in life.
The only path that will to make America good is the godly path in which a moral foundation is the platform for the rule of law in which the little guy gets a few shake in the midst of Crony Capitalist elites concerned with the profit margin for the Board of Directors or for the Shareholders.
Government by and for the people is not a top to bottom manifesto for yeomen Americans rather the people represent the rule of law that protects the rights of the unentitled (and I am not talking about government entitled but rather the wealthy entitled as the opposite of the unentitled).
Real justice for all is godly morality not some Leftist ideological definition of justice that robs the yeoman American of the entrepreneurial opportunity to self-sustaining wealth via hard work and good decision making. Leftist justice will keep yeoman Americans enslaved to a life leashed to whatever government agenda is defined as good for Americans even if it robs of Liberty, a godly life and the pursuit of happiness. I call the Leftist ‘good’ evil.
The few Sarah Palins left in America need to be rallied around and not used in political divisiveness.
Check out the rebuttal of Scottie Hughes’ open letter to Sarah Palin written by Tony Lee.
Tea Party News Network Director Falsely Smears Palin
By Tony Lee
25 Mar 2013
In a bizarre rant–or “open letter”–at Townhall, Scottie Hughes, the news director for the Tea Party News Network, falsely accuses former Alaska Governor and Republican Vice Presidential candidate Sarah Palin of rushing out of this year’s CPAC and having a pattern of ignoring grassroots conservatives.
While Hughes’s motivation for writing such a column may only be known to her, her accusations are demonstrably false.
Doug McMarlin, who has been with Palin since 2008 and was with her at this year’s CPAC, was also perplexed by Hughes’s characterization of the event. Palin met with volunteers, supporters and CPAC leadership at this year’s event. Palin keynoted last year’s CPAC and was the conference’s last speaker, which allowed for her to mix with the audience following her speech.
This year, her slot fell on a Saturday afternoon, which meant there were scheduled speakers immediately after her remarks. It would not have been logistically possible for Palin to even greet the crowd or do talk radio hits from CPAC without causing a huge disturbance due to the crowds that would have swarmed her and disrupted the conference.
“Never underestimate the level the uninformed with a keyboard will go to make a point based on a lack of information,” McMarlin told Breitbart News. “Lamestream, mainstream, and no stream media, it’s unfortunate when those who lack facts lash out without regard. Governor Palin, as always, was with volunteers, supporters and fellow conservatives throughout her days at CPAC.”
Hughes also implied that Palin only speaks to the grassroots through the teleprompter, but this accusation again does not even pass the smell test.
Jason Recher, a Palin staffer who has been with Palin at nearly every event since 2008, told Breitbart News Palin never asks for a teleprompter. In fact, reporters have often said Palin improvises during her speeches, which forces reporters to pay attention to every word in order to quote her accurately.
“I’ve been at almost every speech she’s given since ’08 and can’t think of a time where she ever asked to use a Teleprompter,” Recher told Breitbart News. The teleprompters at CPAC were part of the stage set up used for all the speakers; it was not something Palin personally requested.
Hughes, with no evidence whatsoever, alleges Palin made a “rush to the exits” at this year’s CPAC, implying Palin did not have time for the grassroots.
Again, not true.
As the photos below indicate, Palin spent time after the speech meeting with volunteers.
In addition, Rebecca Mansour, a Palin staffer, told Breitbart News that Palin had to catch a flight immediately after her speech. “She is a very busy working mom with many family and work obligations, including raising a son with Down syndrome who has scheduled therapies,” Mansour said.
Finally, in what may be her most misguided and out-of-touch statement that reveals her ignorance, Hughes refers to Palin’s “pattern of this behavior.”
What “pattern” is Hughes referencing?
The hours that Palin spent with nearly everyone who wanted to speak to her after she keynoted CPAC in 2012, as can be seen in C-SPAN’s coverage of the event?
The hours Palin spent in the lobby at CPAC in 2012 talking to bloggers and attendees, including Townhall’s own Katie Pavlich? Hughes penned her column at Townhall, so it is worth noting that Palin spoke to that outlet at CPAC in 2012.
Is Hughes referencing the time Palin spent with those who came to Iowa–in inclement weather–to listen to Palin denounce crony capitalism and the permanent political class in 2011? At the end of C-SPAN’s coverage of the event, it is clear Palin is energized by grassroots conservatives, and they love her because she genuinely is one of them.
Was Hughes referring to Palin visiting grassroots Tea Partiers at the Machine Shed restaurant in Iowa in 2011, comfortably mingling with nearly everyone in attendance?
Was she referencing Palin’s appearance at the Iowa State Fair in 2011, where she talked to nearly every Iowan who approached her for nearly six hours? Where she won the respect of liberals and even mainstream media reporters who did not think highly of her for genuinely liking “common” people most politicians do not feel comfortable around?
If Hughes is really a part of the grassroots and not a part of an astroturf movement, she could have gone to any of these events–like thousands of grassroots Tea Partiers–and spoken to Palin. Instead, she sounds like mainstream media members who lash out at Palin solely because Palin does not speak to them whenever they wish.
At these events, mainstream media reporters and liberals who did not even like Palin conceded how gracious and how accessible she is and how she thrives around the normal people Hughes purportedly claims to represent. Having written about Palin for nearly four years and having spoken to people who have been at nearly every event Palin has attended during this period, I have consistently heard people comment about how accessible–and down to earth–Palin is after all of her speeches and events, which is especially noteworthy given Palin’s white-hot star power.
It is unclear if Hughes wants Palin to spend time with her or her organization, but grassroots Tea Partiers who truly care more about fighting for the country instead of using the Tea Party to advance whatever agenda suits their interests never ask Palin for anything except to hold politicians and the permanent political class on the left and right to account, which Palin has relentlessly done.
And while Hughes implies Palin does not pay attention to new media, it is worth noting that after Palin turned down Fox News’ offer to renew her contract earlier this year, the first interview Palin gave was to Breitbart News–a new media outlet.
While Hughes, to date, has not seemed like someone who would proverbially come to Washington claiming to change it and instead see the D.C. cesspool as a jacuzzi, her column reads like it was written by someone desperate to become a part of the permanent political class. Her comments are cribbed from remarks the elite Washington, D.C. Republicans and liberals she purportedly is against so often make to denigrate Palin because they, in their minds, think Palin somehow spurned them. They criticize Palin to get pageviews and ratings and to make a name for themselves so they can try to get 1/1000 of her star power and influence.
They desperately crave to get 1/1000 of the bookings Palin most often has to turn down on a daily basis.
They wish their children could have the opportunities to influence pop culture–and would take that chance and go toward the glistening Hollywood spotlight faster than a moth to a flame–all the while acting as if they despise the Hollywood elite while secretly craving their affirmation and wanting all of the glitz and glamour associated with them.
They want to use the Tea Party movement to become stars or cash out instead of fighting to elect candidates like Ted Cruz to the Senate. At CPAC, Cruz said he would not be in the Senate without Palin. Nobody mentioned Hughes, and she most likely will not have politicians knocking on her door to ask for her endorsement.
Hughes needs to be careful, for more columns like this will make people think Hughes may be projecting or falsely seeing in Palin what she may see in herself. Columns that smear a politician like Palin who has held both parties to account in the true spirit of the Tea Party movement will begin to “worry” conservatives and Tea Partiers. They may begin to wonder what Hughes’s intentions are for being in the Tea Party movement and whether Scottie Hughes puts herself before her country and the principles for which she purportedly fights.

Israel is a very small nation established in part because of thousands of years of gross persecution culminating with Hitler’s Holocaust which murdered around SIX MILLION Jews. More importantly from a religious Jewish and Biblical Christian perspective, Israel’s reestablishment is prophetic. I can’t speak for Jews but Biblical Christians believe Israel’s return as a Jewish homeland is a prophetic precursor to the Return of King Jesus to sit on the Throne of David to rule the nations of the world.
AISH.com has a video on their website showing how the United Nations goes out of its way to publish Palestinian propaganda about Israel human rights violations while totally ignoring the brutal butchery of Islamic terrorists upon Jews attempting to terminate the Jewish State. Also the video points out the HUGE human rights violations in other larger nations than Israel ARE NOT APPROACHED nearly as much as the UN comes after Israel that is merely trying to defend its existence surrounded by a sea of hostile Muslim States.
