At long last, the Australian government will no longer refer to Eastern Jerusalem as “occupied”
The Times of Israelreports that Attorney General George Brandis said that Foreign Minister Julie Bishop believes that using the word “occupied” is judgemental and hinders dialogue over the contested area.
Speaking to the Australian Senate, Brandis said: “The description of East Jerusalem as ‘occupied’ East Jerusalem is a term freighted with pejorative implications which is neither appropriate nor useful.– More here. (thanks to the Tundra Tabloids)
I just happened to stumble upon a very interesting article in the Jerusalem Post which tells quite a lot about the attitude of Jews towards the recent victories of the Front National and other Right-Wing parties in Europe, and I must add that I simply cannot get over my amazement when I read things like the following:
Some Jewish leaders see a silver living in the election results, however, postulating that the rise of the far right may catalyze European Jews and Muslims to WORK TOGETHER.
European Union’s Home Affairs Commissioner urged member states to take more refugees by offering 6000 euro support for each refugee taken from camps outside the EU and resettled in one of the member states.
“I am speaking on behalf of the European Commission in support of the reception and integration of refugees. EU states will receive 6000 euro support for each refugee taken from the refugee camps and resettled in their respective countries,” Cecilia Malmstroem, EU Homes Affairs Commissioner said in an interview with German daily Die Welt.
A law banning conversion to other religions? It’s routine in the Muslim world. It’s not always punished by the death penalty, but there are usually laws against it or laws making it difficult. That’s the case even in supposedly moderate Muslim countries.
The Muslim sources are filled with passages proving that Muhammad allowed his followers to practice temporary marriage (nikah al-mut’ah), a form of prostitution. Here’s a video describing the practice in Indonesia:
Yet Westernized Muslims assure us that Muhammad eventually outlawed temporary marriage (certain Muslim sources suggest this). These Muslims fail to mention, however, that some of Islam’s most trusted sources plainly declare that Muhammad never prohibited mut’ah. For instance, the following passage in Sahih Muslim says that Muslims were practicing mut’ah well beyond the lifetime of Muhammad:
Sahih Muslim 3248—Ibn Uraij reported: ‘Ati’ reported that Jabir b. Abdullah came to perform ‘Umra, and we came to his abode, and the people asked him about different things, and then they made a mention of temporary marriage, whereupon he said: Yes, we had been benefiting ourselves by this temporary marriage during the lifetime of the Holy Prophet and during the time of Abu Bakr and ‘Umar.
“No single Christian’s house is left standing. All were brought down to ashes.” For peaceful purposes …
Qur’an Sura 2:256a, “Let there be no compulsion in religion …”
Qur’an: Sura 4:89, “Have no unbelieving friends. Kill the unbelievers [non-Muslims] wherever you find them.”
But wait: was it really “Islamists dressed as govt soldiers’ or was it govt soldiers?
Ten Nigerian Generals Found Guilty of Aiding Boko Haram
Here in the West, we’re constantly told that groups like Boko Haram (whose full name is “The Congregation of the People of the Sunnah for Dawah and Jihad”) have nothing to do with Islam. And yet we find high level military officials in Nigeria actively supporting the group. Why? Because Islam commands its adherents to establish Sharia, and Boko Haram is working to establish Sharia in Nigeria.
We May Not See Their Faces, But God Knows Who They Are
Voice of the Persecuted – “Our Nigerian correspondent has confirmed another brutal attack by Boko Haram Islamic militants near the Cameroon border. They invaded Attagara village in Gwoza, a Local Government of Borno State killing over 80 Christians. The insurgents came in military Helux, disguised as Nigerian Military. They called the Christians to the church premises where over 45 Christians assembled, believing they were military personnel. Unfortunately all were killed at the church compound.
According to an eye witness demanding anonymity, a group of the insurgents overcame 30 nursing mothers and killed 17 of the children. ‘I saw it with my eyes’, the witness said. ‘But some of the women that were carrying females babies were not killed’, they added.
Investigation Finds Obama Financing Mosques Worldwide With U.S. Taxpayer Dollars
Really, deep down Obama is a Christian. The future must not belong to …. whom again?
WASHINGTON, D.C. — A Channel 2 Action News investigation found that the State Department is sending millions of dollars to save mosques overseas. This investment has received criticism as the United States makes an effort to slash nearly $4 trillion in government spending.Plenty of outrage following the announcement made Thursday afternoon by a government commission that suggested huge cuts to the budget, including eliminating the interest education for home mortgage. This juxtaposed with the United States investing millions to refurbish mosques as a good-will effort in Muslim countries has upset many taxpayer groups.
“We are spending money we don’t have. This is all on a gigantic credit card right now,” said Jared Thomas, a taxpayer advocate.
Millions more dollars have been sent to places like (Turk occupied) Cyprus. The State Department displays before and after pictures of mosques refurbished with U.S. tax dollars.
