Time to look at Islam/Shariah BankingÂ
With Islam comes Shariah law. This is the framework or rules and regulations enforced in Islamic theocracies as “law.” Examples of authoritarian Shariah law include: requirement of women to obtain permission from husbands for daily freedoms; beating of disobedient woman and girls; execution of homosexuals; engagement of polygamy and forced child marriages; the testimony of four male witnesses to prove rape; honor killings of those, principally women, who have dishonored the family; death to apostate Muslims who chose to leave Islam; inferior status of non-Muslims, and capital punishment for those who “slander Islam.” This is what Islam replaces freedom with wherever Muslims succeed in taking over â€“ Shariah law at its finest absurdity.

Interfaith meeting told “mistrust risks violence”
* More of that ‘interfaith’ crock & schlock
By Tom Heneghan, Religion EditorReuters -Â Wednesday, July 30 02:47 am
NEW HAVEN, Connecticut (Reuters) – Christians and Muslims mistrust each other so much that a few terrorist attacks could trigger dramatic and violent religious tensions, a Jordanian prince told an interfaith conference on Tuesday.
Prince Ghazi bin Muhammad bin Talal, sponsor of a Muslim appeal to Christian leaders to work together for peace, said the two religions must work together or face possible violence that risks turning into genocide.
The warning was a stark reminder to the 150 participants, theologians and faith leaders who came to discuss common views on love of God and neighbour, of the dangerous potential religion can have when intertwined with political conflicts.
* Essential reading: Resisting IslamizationÂ ByÂ Jamie Glazov
“Christians and Muslims routinely mistrust, disrespect and dislike each other, if not popularly and actively rubbish, dehumanize, demonize, despise and attack each other,” said Ghazi, a special adviser to Jordan’s King Abdullah. (Hmm, and why would that be?)
A recent global survey showed that 60 percent of Christians disliked Muslims and 30 percent of Muslims reciprocate, (‘reciprocate?’ Isn’t it more like ‘retaliate’ in the way of jihad?) he said. “With such an explosive mix, popular religious conflicts, even unto genocide, are lurking around the corner,” he said. (sure its not the other way around?)

Turkey is roasted.
* Erdogan and his party of sly jihadists have recently purged the military and the judiciary of manyÂ of their secular opponents, and this judge was either intimidated or sympathetic to the cause of Islam.
Wednesday, July 30, 2008
ISTANBUL: Turkey’s highest court on Wednesday ruled against closing the country’s governing party but cut its state funding by half in response to charges that it threatened the nation’s secular regime during its six years in power.
The case called for banning the party on the grounds that it had steered Turkey, whose citizens are mostly Muslim, away from its constitutionally mandated secularism. Â The case was part of a broader struggle between the party, whose members are observant Muslims, and the secular elite, which includes the military and judicial systems.

Malaysia ‘aware’ Thai insurgents hiding out
The government of Malaysia knows that extremists from southern Thailand have crossed the border to take refuge in Malaysia, media reported from that country on Wednesday.
Last week, Thai authorities said three insurgents had fled into Malaysia to try to hide among either extremist sympathisers or the general Malaysian population.
TheÂ New Straits TimesÂ quoted “sources” in the border town of Kota Baru as saying authorities “are aware of the presence of several suspected Thai militants” in the upper east coast provinces of Kelantan and Terengganu.
Both provinces have many residents who are sympathetic to the separatist demands of the Thailand-based insurgents and terrorists.
“Sources said the authorities had been monitoring these groups for the past few years but had yet to take any action against them as they were living here legitimately and had not committed any offence,” said the national newspaper.
“The men are also believed to have dual identity cards.”
Earlier reports said three religious teachers known asÂ ustazÂ and four other Thai men had fled to Malaysia to escape arrest in connection with a series of bombings in the deep South.
“Kelantan police chief Datuk Abdul Rahim Hanafi declined to comment on the matter, saying that it was a sensitive issue,” according to the reports on Wednesday. (compiled by BangkokPost.com)

“PM announces he will resign after Kadima elects new leader,”
from theÂ Jerusalem Post, July 30:
Prime Minister Ehud Olmert held a special press conference on Wednesday at 8 p.m. where he announced he will not run in the Kadima primary scheduled to take place in September.Olmert said he would resign from office upon selection of a successor, and would allow his successor to attempt to form a coalition.
The premier lashed out at his political adversaries without naming any of them – either from Kadima or other parties – personally.
Olmert opened his speech by expressing his pride to be a citizen of Israel: “As a citizen in a democracy I have always believed that when a person is elected prime minister in Israel, even those who opposed him in the ballot want him to succeed.
“But instead I found myself subjected to constant investigations and criticism. Almost from day one, I had to repel personal attacks and postpone decisions that are pertinent to the security of the State.”
Olmert then proceeded to recount the successes of his premiership: “And yet, Israel’s position has improved.
“The North enjoys tranquility; Israel’s deterrence has immeasurably improved. I am proud of these achievements,” he said.
Achievements? The North is threatened with imminent attack and the South is already under attack. And he is whining about personal attacks.

“We are tired of fighting, we are tired of being courageous, we are tired of winning, we are tired of defeating our enemies, we want that we will be able to live in an entirely different environment of relations with our enemies. We want them to be our friends, our partners, our good neighbors, and I believe that this is not impossible.” –from Prime Minister Ehud Olmert’s June 9, 2005, speech delivered at the Israel Policy Forum.Â
* Â “When it comes to appeasing the enemy, he is, sadly, very consistent.”
Prime Minister Olmert delivered this pathetic “appeasement” statement. He might be a liar and under numerous investigations, but when it comes to appeasing the enemy, he is, sadly, very consistent. This statement was a foreshadowing of the disasters which have come under his leadership in the past three years: the kidnapping of Gilad Shalit, the abduction and deaths of Eldad Regev and Ehud Goldwasswer, the failed Second Lebanon War and finally, the release of terrorist child-murderer Samir Kuntar in exchange for the already brutally murdered bodies of Regev and Goldwasser. This was theÂ coup de grace of appeasing terrorists.
* News update: Hamas Work Accident Watch: 5Â bomb-makersÂ hurt in huge blast
I completely oppose the actions and policies of the Israeli government and, inevitably, some of the people of Israel, as they sanctioned their leadership in carrying out this deal. When the Israeli government released Samir Kuntar, it was a defeat of enormous import for the spirit and will of the Jewish people. I hang my head in shame.
Just in from Carl in Jerusalem
Could it be that the world’s largest recipient of foreign aid per capita with the expert suit-and-tie-clad businessman at its helm is going bankrupt? That’s what the ‘Palestinian Authority‘ is telling the Jerusalem Post on Tuesday morning. The reason for the ‘bankruptcy’? No, of course it’s not that they spent more than they took in. It’s that they didn’t take in enough. You see, many of the ‘donor countries’ – especially the Arab ones – haven’t been ponying up their money now that a barrel of oil ‘only’ costs $126 instead of $147….
The officials told The Jerusalem Post that the PA wouldn’t be able to pay July salaries to more than 150,000 public servants and may be forced to close down several government institutions as a result of the deepening crisis.
I know one place they could cut back – they could stop paying ‘salaries‘ for all their ‘employees‘ inÂ GazaÂ who haven’t come to work in over a year. At least 40% of the ‘Palestinian Authority’s ‘budget’ isÂ spent in Gaza, which they do not even control.
The officials disclosed that the deficit in the PA budget has risen in the past six months from $1.6 billion to $2b.
“We are facingÂ a real crisis,” a top PA official told the Post, adding “we are on the brink of bankruptcy.”

Jon Voight must have retired from Hollywood to dare write this:
If Mr. Obama had his way, he would have pulled our troops from Iraq years ago and initiated an unprecedented bloodbath, turning over that country to the barbarianism of our enemies. With what he has openly stated about his plans for our military, and his lack of understanding about the true nature of our enemies, there’s not a cell in my body that can accept the idea that Mr. Obama can keep us safe from the terrorists around the world, and from Iran, which is making great strides toward getting the atomic bomb. And while a misleading portrait of Mr. Obama is being perpetrated by a media controlled by the Democrats, the Obama camp has sent out people to attack the greatness of Sen. John McCain, whose suffering and courage in a Hanoi prison camp is an American legend…
This is a perilous time, and more than ever, the world needs a united and strong America.Â If, God forbid, we live to see Mr. Obama president, we will live through a socialist era that America has not seen before, and our country will be weakened in every way.

“We are being mentally tortured,” Imam Ahmed said at his mosque, an anonymous building that looks more like an apartment complex than a house of worship. “The cartoons are an insult against Islam, an attempt by right-wing forces in this country to get a rise out of the Muslim community and so portray us as against Danish values.”
Soren Krarup, a retired priest and leading voice in the party, said the Muslim response to the cartoons showed that Islam was not compatible with Danish customs.Â “Muslims who come here reject our culture,” he said. “Muslim immigration is a way for Muslims to conquer us, just as they have done for the past 1,400 years.”

US:Â Ignorance about the Enemy’s Ideology is the Problem
by Jeffrey Imm
Special to IPT News
July 29, 2008
In fighting Jihad, America’s greatest challenge remains understanding and confronting theÂ ideologyÂ that provides the basis for Jihadist terrorism. Efforts to clearly define this enemy ideology recently have beenÂ underminedÂ by theÂ Department of Homeland SecurityÂ (DHS), theÂ National Counterterrorism CenterÂ (NCTC), and the State Department in promoting a “terror lexicon” that recommends federal government employees avoid terms such asÂ “jihad,”Â “jihadist,”Â “Islamist,”Â ry=mujahideen&v%3Aproject=clusty-gov&v%3Apersonality=&v%3Asources=911″>“mujahideen,”Â andÂ “caliphate”Â when addressing issues involving terrorism. The argument made by the DHS, NCTC, and others is that the use of such terms will aid in the “recruitment” of Muslims to join terrorist organizations, or will alternatively provide “legitimacy” to religious aspects of terrorist efforts.

Report: Iran now has 6000 centrifuges for uranium
TEHRAN, Iran (AP) â€” Iran’s president said Saturday his country now possesses 6,000 centrifuges, a significant increase in its nuclear program that is certain to further rankle the United States and others who fear Tehran is intent on developing weapons.
The new figure is double the 3,000 uranium-enriching machines Iran had previously said it was operating.
President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad’s announcement, reported by the semi-official Fars news agency, comes a week after the U.S. reversed course in negotiations over Iran’s nuclear program by sending a top American diplomat to participate in talks between Tehran and world powers.
