Jews Hand Muslims Synagogue Keys When a Texas Mosque Burns Down

In the small Gulf Coast city of Victoria, Texas, there are several churches, but just one synagogue, and one mosque — at least, until the mosque mysteriously burned down on Saturday, according to the New York Times.

Now, in a sense, the synagogue has become a mosque: the Jews of Victoria handed the Muslims the key to the building, so they would a place to worship while rebuilding.

“Everyone knows everybody, I know several members of the mosque, and we felt for them,” said Robert Loeb, the president of Bnai Israel, which affiliates with the Reform movement.

On Sunday, the Victoria community held an interfaith event in front of the mosque. Through local donations and a GoFundMe page, the mosque raised over $900,000 in the span of one day to rebuild the mosque. The Jewish Anti-Defamation League’s southwestern arm also attended the event.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Even though this may have been a PR move on the part of the Synagogue, it still demonstrates that good people of all faiths can get along, when given half a chance!!

I desperately wish that the members of the Synagogue and Mosque could act as international ambassadors of interfaith good will in those areas of the Middle East where it absolutely does not exist, because of political expropriation of religion.

And if you have not seen it, the following Amazon Prime commercial, about a priest and Imam getting together is absolutely priceless, and we both love it (I may get flack for posting this, but here goes:

BUSTED: University of California Whines That Trump's Immigration Order "Is Contrary To The Values We Hold Dear" - Let's Examine Their 'Values'

Ten Chancellors comprising the University of California system along with the UC President have issued a dramatic press release regarding President Trump's Executive order on immigration. But more than silly, it is the height of hypocrisy- if you know anything about the UC system and UC Irvine in particular. They pretend to care about minorities and foreigners, touting what the refer to as "the values we hold dear as leaders of the University of California." But this it the school, UC Irvine, SEVEN YEARS AGO THIS WEEK that attacked, persecuted, punished Muslim students, the 'Irvine 11' as the case became known- for daring to exercise their religious, ethnic and academic freedom, when they protested the Israeli Ambassador at a UC Irvine event.

GOP unveils bill to allow political activity by churches

On the same day President Trump vowed to “destroy” a law preventing religious groups and churches from engaging in political activities, Republicans in the House and Senate introduced legislation to make the proposal reality.

The law known as the Johnson Amendment, first enacted in 1954, prohibits churches and other religious organizations from keeping their tax-exempt status if they endorse political candidates or participate in partisan political activities.

In this 18-minute interview with CBN, President Trump discusses fake news, immigration, his Supreme Court pick, and several other issues. In the segment, titled 'Faith on the front lines,' Brody presses Trump if the embassy will be moved to Jerusalem, noting that "this issue is very important to evangelical Christians." Trump diplomatically says that there are two sides to the issue and that he is studying it, and will make an announcement at some time in the future.

Why Saint Thomas Aquinas Opposed Open Borders

Every nation has the right to distinguish, by country of origin, who can migrate to it and apply appropriate immigration policies, according to the great medieval scholar and saint Thomas Aquinas.
In a surprisingly contemporary passage of his Summa Theologica, Aquinas noted that the Jewish people of Old Testament times did not admit visitors from all nations equally, since those peoples closer to them were more quickly integrated into the population than those who were not as close.

Some antagonistic peoples were not admitted at all into Israel due to their hostility toward the Jewish people.

The Law “prescribed in respect of certain nations that had close relations with the Jews,” the scholar noted, such as the Egyptians and the Idumeans, “that they should be admitted to the fellowship of the people after the third generation.”

Drain The Neo-Con/Neo-Liberal Deep State Micro-Swamp

The enormous potential for sabotage, politically motivated investigations/prosecutions/indictments/civil lawsuits, and other types of proverbial “throwing a monkey wrench” into the well-oiled pro-America First machine that President Donald Trump is now trying to feverishly re-construct and re-build is at huge, great risk from potential enemies within.

Now that President Donald Trump is, in a lightening fast, almost blitzkrieg manner, using his first weeks to pass monumentally powerful Executive Orders, in order to demolish and devastate the existing United States Deep State Neo-Conservative/Neo-Liberal Establishment, he must also simultaneously watch his back and be cognizant of the tens of millions of government micro-infiltrators, still taking their marching orders from the proverbial “head of the snake.”

In other words, the devil is in the details...

Trump weighing Callista Gingrich for Vatican ambassador

The Trump administration is considering Callista Gingrich, wife of Newt Gingrich, to be the US ambassador to The Vatican, according to a report Thursday.

She is among the top candidates for the coveted position, The New York Times reported.

Newt Gingrich had also been considered for the post despite his twin divorces and three marriages, but took himself out of the running.

Callista Gingrich, who calls herself a devout Catholic, told the Christian Broadcasting Network in a 2011 interview that she has “always been a very spiritual person.”

Her husband converted to Catholicism in 2009, The Hill reported.

The couple have been longtime friends of President Trump, and are members at his Virginia golf resort.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

OK, here is Callista Gingrich's bio from the IMBD data base:

Callista Gingrich's bio.

And I can see in it that she has done voiceovers for documentaries that she and Newt have produced; she played French horn,supports music and the arts; and has been on the Agricultural Committee; but where, please, are her international credentials as a diplomat?!?!?

They are absolutely no where to be seen, because they don't exist.

So Mr. President, I know this couple are very close to you and Melania; but please don't go here, when it comes to an appointment like this, because it is looking purely as a political payback for their help in your Presidential campaign.

This past week, while on the grounds of the school, our researchers along with Kevin Annett -Rawennatshani, who acts with our approval, have unearthed what has been described as human remains. One bone among sixteen uncovered has been identified, through preliminary visual examination by a competent archaeologist, as that of a young child. This bone sample is described by the same archaeologist as “definitely human”.

From Yin to Yang – Pussy Riot–3, in Washington

The ascent of Donald Trump is more than a change of tenant of the White House on 1600, Pennsylvania Ave. It is a momentous swing from Yin to Yang, from dark feminine to bright masculine paradigm, from Cybele to Christ. Tremendous resistance to the regime change proves its unique importance.

Pussy Riot–3, in Washington, another obscene attempt to use women and their bodies for political and religious anti-Christian purposes.

If you prefer a more up-to-date comparison, this is a new Pussy Riot. Perhaps you remember there was a Russian group of that name. They were anti-Putin like the American lot is anti-Trump; they blasphemed like their American counterparts; they were guided and supported by Louise “Madonna” Ciccone, who starred in Washington threatening to blow up the White House.

Myanmar defies OIC call to stop atrocities against Rohingya

Myanmar has defied a call by Muslim governments to stop atrocities against Rohingya Muslims, slamming instead Malaysia for hosting a meeting of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC).

At an extraordinary OIC meeting in Kuala Lumpur on Thursday, the Malaysian premier called on Myanmar to end its crackdown on Rohingya Muslims and stop the "unspeakable cruelty" against them.

Myanmar's Ministry of Foreign Affairs on Saturday said it was "regrettable" that Malaysia had called the emergency meeting to discuss the plight of the Rohingya.

The ministry accused Malaysia of exploiting the crisis "to promote a certain political agenda" and disregarding alleged efforts of the Myanmar government to tackle the crisis.

Myanmar’s military began its crackdown in Rakhine State after an attack on the country’s border guards on October 9 left nine police officers dead, which the government blamed on the Rohingya.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Malaysian Prime Minister Razak, you have no earthly idea who I am, but I thoroughly support your call for Myanmar to stop persecuting its Muslim minority, the Rohingya.

And to Aung San Suu Kyi; sorry, my dear, but the world cannot "unsee" these images of Rohingya pain, suffering and death, at the hands of your military:

Images of Rohingya villages being burned to the ground by Myanmar
military

Images: Myanmar military persecuting Muslim Rohingya minority

I would also like to politely remind Aung San Suu Kyi that collective punishment, by preventing humanitarian aid to reach desperately starving people, is a war crime.

‘Molested when we confessed’: Duterte fires up at Catholic priests over pedophilia, corruption

Unshaken by a blessing from Pope Francis, Philippines President Rodrigo Duterte has hit back at priests and bishops critical of his war on drugs, accusing clergymen of homosexuality, child molesting, hypocrisy and corruption. “You asked for it,” he said.

“You expose me, fine. I expose you. Why? When you commit mistakes it's OK, but when we do, no? Bullshit. That’s stupid,” the president said during a speech to newly-promoted police officers at Malacañan on Thursday.

Cardinal Timothy Dolan, Participating In Trump's Inauguration, Called Catholic Victims Of Clergy Sexual Abuse "Fake Victims"

This is probably the most vile story I've ever had to write, but this Cardinal Timothy Dolan deserves to be exposed in a big way. I sent him a letter privately about this in 2015, which his representative at the diocese acknowledged in writing that he received. But since he doesn't find it worthy of a response, the public realm is the next best venue. Don't think for a minute that this is an anti-Catholic screed. Not at all. In fact it's just the opposite. Clergymen must be held accountable to the moral law by the laity if they fail in their sacred duty; Saints and Popes throughout history have taught us this and stated such in countless official documents. Cardinal Dolans has failed his flock in multiple ways.

Reality check: Is #Pizzagate #Fakenews or Has It Just Not Been Officially Investigated?

There is no proof here that there is a child sex-ring operating out of a DC pizza parlor. Investigators have already proven that there is nothing to the story, right? Well, actually, no; and that's what you need to know.

For all that is here, there has not been single public investigation of any of this... not from the local police, not from the FBI. No one. And that has to be the big question: Not for the Podestas or pizza parlor owners, but for law enforcement. Why hasn't any investigation taken place?

NY Cardinal Invited To Participate In Presidential Inaugural Has 'Some Reservations' About Trump

A mere three days before the historical Presidential Inauguration of Donald N. Trump, a Catholic Cardinal from New York who's reading Holy Scripture at the ceremony has expressed some 'reservations' about Trump. While I am a faithful professed and practicing Catholic, LibertyFight.com has reported twice on Cardinal Dolan previously, neither of the instances favorable. In 2015 Dolan whined that immigrants are "are scorned and rejected." That same year, he criticized critics of police abuse as a "shrill but tiny minority" whom "might try to malign" the 'heroic' police. WORST OF ALL, Cardinal Dolan praised Bill Donohue of 'The Catholic League,' who had falsely maligned of SNAP, Survivors Network of those abused by Priests, as a 'phony victims' group.'

You can listen to the 5-minute portion of his speech here.

HISTORIC: Never-Before-Published Martin Luther King, Jr. Letter To A Catholic Woman

This is probably one of the most exciting and fascinating stories I've ever broken here at LibertyFight.com. As a Catholic civil rights advocate and truth-seeker I have long published stories which have a Catholic angle. Even though my audience is largely secular, I believe that all types of folks should work together for the greater good. I strongly advocate for the respect of our God-given rights and that government respect the inherent natural rights of all people. So to find this morning a historical never-before published letter from the Martin Luther King Jr., who is known worldwide as the best-known civil rights leader, is astounding. The priest allowed me to take a photo of it this morning and I uploaded it. In the letter to a Catholic woman dated September 23, 1964, Dr. King writes a response to the Catholic woman. WOW! Whether or not you're religious this is still of historical significance and interest.

Retired U.S. Marine Corps General James 'Mad Dog' Mattis was questioned in his Senate confirmation hearings for Secretary of Defense on Thurssay, January 12. Neocon Senator Lindsay Graham peppered a subdued Mattis with questions about what is the capital of Israel, asking "do you agree with me that Jerusalem is the capital of Israel?" But Graham's smarmy pressure-tactics fell flat, and did not work. Mattis flatly replied that the capital of Israel was Tel Aviv.

Grand Mufti Of Syria Dismantles Lie That Syrian Crisis Is Driven By Religious Strife

By Brandon Turbeville

While most Americans are force fed propaganda and misinformation about virtually every country outside their own borders (including the country in which they live) Syria has been a particular target of the corporate press. In fact, so much propaganda and lies have been spread regarding Syria and the crisis unfolding there that the average person glued to Fake News outlets like CNN, FOX, and MSNBC could scarcely recite one fact about the country correctly.

One such propaganda narrative is the lie that the Syrian crisis is sectarian in nature and that the country was plagued by religious tension and division before the war began. Neither of these claims were the case and, five years into the NATO imperialist war effort, Syrians are as united as they have ever been...

Jewish Defense League lends its support to Neo-Nazis planning an armed protest against Jews

ed note–when the Aryan Nations marched here in sleepy, lil’ old Coeur d’Alene, Idaho years ago, the JDL made sure to be here and make its presence known and received national headlines for doing so.
But in this case, they have decided to ‘jine up’ with Andrew Anglin and his ‘movement’ and their plans to march through sleepy, lil’ old Whitefish, Montana with–as Anglin describes it–‘machine guns’…
For those having a difficult time putting the pieces together, what Andrew and his gang–who get near-daily exposure on the JMSM–are planning is to hold a public march through Whitefish, Montana, armed with–again, using Anglin’s own words–‘machine guns’–in the interests of intimidating the town’s Jewish residents as a result of what these same residents recently did in threatening the mother of Robert Spencer, leader of the same ‘alt-right’ that has featured in so much discussion involving Donald Trump.
So, let’s see if we can figure all this out.

Soon-To-Be Catholic Saint Advocated Ditching Child Labor Laws

In his classic sermon on 'False Compassion,' Venerable Archbishop Fulton Sheen targets child labor laws, and derides society's apparent obsession with getting a college education: "We ought to perhaps reform our child labor laws. Young people are not allowed to work on account of the law!? They're old enough to work, they're old enough to commit crimes! They do not want to go to school. We assume in the United States that everybody must go to school... So that college today, instead of being an intellectual privilege it's becoming a sort of social neccesity. 'You have to go.'

Obama’s Anti-Trump War Comes At The Expense of American Interests

The expulsion of 35 Russian diplomats and their family members by Obama, just weeks before leaving office, was heralded in the mainstream media as ‘response to attacking our democracy.’ What was (and still is) absent from those reports was any proof of an ‘attack.’ Technical experts laughed at “evidence” provided by the White House, independent journalists reminded the nation about the Iraq WMD lies that led the US into war, while Trump has refused to lash out at Russia, despite pressure from both major parties and their media bullhorns.

Obama Caught On Tape Saying What He Really Thinks About The Bible, It’s Sick (Video)

Here is yet another example where Obama proves to the country that either lied to voters from the beginning, that he has absolutely no respect for American history (the one that actually happened, not the one in his mind), that he has zero respect for the beliefs of 80%+ of all Americans who are Christian, or most likely a solid combination of all three.

There are many Americans who believe Obama lied about his Christian faith, and believe he is actually a closet Muslim. Video compilations like the one below certainly have a tenancy to make someone wonder. Either Obama was lying on the campaign trail when he said he was a Christian, or he’s lying in the first video below. Since Obama is a complete sociopath, it’s hard to be certain which one is the lie.

At first the rabbi tries to convince Jesse that whites are racist against black people, a point which Jesse vehemently denies. "You just made a statement about white people that isn't true," he tells the rabbi. "It doesn't exist." The rabbi gets visibly agitated, and they argue back and forth. Jesse then launches another stream of shocking, rapid-fire questions:
•"Are you racist?"
•"Are there Jewish people who are racist against white people?"
•"Are there white people who are racist against Jewish people?"
•"Were Nazis white people? And why were they mad at the Jews?"

U.S. Catholic Bishops Condemn "Injustices Perpetrated Against Palestinians By The Israeli Government"

Gee, how did CNN, Fox, The NY Slmes, and all the other fake news completely miss this one? Maybe they don't want the Christians in America to learn about the atrocities perpetrated against Palestinians by Israel? Most Reverand Bishop Oscar Cantu, Chairman of The U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops Committee on International Justice and Peace, recently sent a following letter to U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry regarding the situation in Israel and Palestine. In it, the bishop notes that Palestinian homes are destroyed, confiscated, and the Israelis even encroach on Christian monestaries and convents!

John In Barbados Discusses Loving Others And Helping Out His Neighbors

John in Barbados Discusses Loving Thy Neighbor: This is a very lovely clip - perhaps quite different than when you heard John discussing politics. In this yet-unreleased clip which we are sharing for the first time today on the new site JohnInBarbados.com, John shares stories of helping others and explains why it is important. "I've worked on the premise that I've taken a lot out of this world, and it was about time I started giving back, so if me neighbors roof was leaking them get me equipment and go over there and repair the roof," he begins.
"...Being neighborly and helping people out, you get repaid 1,000 times, I'm telling people. That is the truth." This interview conducted by Ted Midward, took place in October 2016.

Tribute To John In Barbados: His Last 7 Calls To Mike Rivero's Show, Photos, & A Very Special Message From His Daughter

Very sad news this past Friday, December 23; 'John in Barbados,' the erudite caller who had become a staple on Mike Rivero's WhatReallyHappened.com radio show, died after a sudden illness. I thought John deserved some kind of tribute, along with some closure for the WRH community - sort of a virtual wake, if you will. In addition, I was curious about this man, his background, and what kind of life he had led- he was a very intriguing character. John's daughter and wife liked the idea and thought he would too, so they agreed to share some stories and pictures. In addition, I told them that I'd put a comment section here so that John's friends can share any thoughts or condolences they have on this page, so that his family can read it. Please feel free to do so.
Bump to the top for the folks on the other side of the planet.

Obama Just Positioned Israel and Entire Middle East For a Horribly Bloody War (Video)

Since the day he first took office, Barack Obama has thumbed his nose at virtually every long standing U.S. tradition, upended decades worth of foreign policy decisions that were paid for with the lives of thousands of our nation’s finest as well as trillions of dollars in American taxpayers’ money (back when they all still had jobs), has divided this country in a way unlike anything I’ve seen during my 40 years on this planet, and he’s done all of it with the full support of a grossly corrupt and dishonest mainstream media that didn’t tell Americans the truth about virtually any of it.

First Amendment Guarantees Freedom of Religion, Not Freedom From It (Video)

Like so many other members of the now “un-silent American majority” who voted for Donald Trump to be our republic’s 45th President, over the last few weeks I took great comfort in hearing President-Elect Trump say the words “Merry Christmas” to the American public, and on do so many times on national television. For the last eight years under President Obama’s administration, the entire country was subjected to nothing short of national historic blasphemy while Obama and his band of clapping seals on the far left forced us to endure their relentless assault on the Judeo-Christian values our country has held dear since its founding, along with their attempts to re-write historical fact.

Aleppo celebrates Christmas, shares stories of joy & loss

Syrians in the liberated city of Aleppo are celebrating Christmas…

‘We had 4 years of pain, of war & blood’

Christians in Syria have largely rallied behind the secular government, seeing it as their protector.

This year, many people in the liberated city of Aleppo are celebrating for the first time since the war began. RT’s Lizzie Phelan talked with residents of the war-ravaged city now recovering from its wounds.

Jewish Daily Forward: "What Do Israelis Think About Americans? Start With Disdain."

Though Israel is a famously fractious society, Israelis tend to agree on one thing: Their strongest supporters are an inherently dupable people. “Most Israelis think Americans are pro-Israel and we can sell them anything, especially mud from the Dead Sea,” said David Lifshitz, the lead writer for the Israeli comedy show “Eretz Nehederet,” or “Wonderful Land.”

“Or — just regular mud with a ‘Dead Sea’ sticker on it.” But it’s not just American tourists whom many Israelis see as guileless. American foreign policy is held up to similar scrutiny here, even as Israel receives billions of dollars in foreign aid from the United States each year. “Americans are perceived to be naive, especially when it comes to the Middle East,” said Uri Dromi, who served as a spokesman for the Yitzhak Rabin and Shimon Peres governments. “It is a bad neighborhood and it seems like they just don’t realize it.”

Leah Remini calls Scientology’s bluff: If I lied about anything, sue me

In an a interview on Larry King Now Thursday, reformed Scientologist Leah Remini challenged the church’s criticism of her reality show Scientology and the Aftermath, arguing if they want to call her and her fellow defectors liars, “they should sue.”

Asked about the Church of Scientology’s statement that Remini is a “bitter ex-Scientologst” and “spoiled entitled diva” lying about the church for attention and recognition, Remini told King she has nothing to say about its position.

“I don’t,” Remini said. “I think that says a lot about this organization. They should sue us, it’s as simple as that. If we’re lying—“

“And listen, they say this on every outlet that can,” she continued. “They have said this about every single person that’s spoke out, and not one lawsuit has been brought to anybody.”

Remini noted Scientologists are “not a group that is scared of a lawsuit.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Mike and I have recorded, and watched, this series with great interest.

In this documentary, I would characterise Ms. Remeni as a woman of extraordinary intelligence, courage and grit, honestly speaking out about the abuses she has seen, and interviewing others to whom abuse happened, with extraordinary candor.

If you have not seen this series, I commend it highly.

In New Front in the War on Christmas, Liberals Claiming Jesus Never Even Existed

It’s been a while since I’ve seen a “War on Christmas” special air on Fox News, but if they’re searching for material, it’s going to be easy for them this year.

The latest claim? That Jesus never existed at all!

A new article in Big Think claims that more and more, “historians and bloggers alike are questioning whether the actual man called Jesus existed.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Technically, they are correct. Yeshua in English is actually Joshua. The name "Jesus" is an artifact of translating Aramaic into Greek, and then from Greek into Latin.

Joshua was heir to the House of David. His patriarchal lineage is given in the New Testament.

Contrary to the myth crafted at the Council of Nicaea, Joshua's family was quite rich. Joseph is described as a "Man of craft", meaning wise and educated, but this was mistranslated (probably deliberately) into "Carpenter" as the Romans were crafting Christianity to appeal to poor people. But the reality is that Joshua, as heir to the House of David, was well off, allowing him the luxury of education at the temple and travel to Egypt during the "missing" years.

Joshua's wife, Mary Magdalene, was a princess of the House of Benjamin, and their marriage was a dynastic pairing that gave Joshua a legitimate claim to the throne of Judea. His "ministry" was about undermining the power of both the Roman civil authority and the Sanhedrin, which had sided with Roman rule. Relying on the power of myths, Joshua staged events that "proved" he was the promised Messiah, then tried to seize the throne. He failed, and was crucified for treason against Rome.

But crucifixion takes a week, and Joshua was taken down from the cross still alive. The New Testament reports that Pilate wondered why Joshua "died" so quickly but was discouraged from asking questions by his wife, who may have been one of Joshua's many female supporters. Joshua fled to India where he taught a Christian-like religion and lived to a ripe old age. He is buried in Srinagar.

Meanwhile, Joshua's wife, Mary, fled to the Jewish enclave in the South of France, gave birth to their daughter Sarah, and continued the Christian church as Joshua had intended, which eventually gave rise to the Cathars. The family eventually intermarried with the Sicambrian Franks, giving rise to the Merovingian kings.

Study: Children 100 Times More Likely To Be Sexually Assaulted By School Staff Than By Priests

By John Vibes

In recent years, Catholic priests have earned a nasty reputation for sexually assaulting minors, and rightfully so, there is a disturbing trend towards sexual abuse within the clergy.

However, according to a long-ignored study, public schools are actually a far more dangerous environment for children, where students are 100 times more likely to be sexually assaulted than they would in a church.

This point is not made to take attention away from the very real problem of sexual abuse in churches, but is intended to highlight how the same problem exists to an even greater degree in public schools and is swept under the rug...

Muslims, Hindus Are More Likely To Intervene For Social Justice Than Christians: Poll

A new poll suggests that Muslims and Hindus in the United States are more likely to intervene if they come across a situation, in which someone is being victimized.

Nearly 30 percent of Muslims and 40 percent of Hindus said they would get involved as bystanders if they witness social injustice, according to the results of the survey, entitled Bystander Backlash, released Tuesday.

The 2016 Timeline of Islamic Terror

2016 has been studded with Islamic terror attacks across the continent in Europe. The attacks began just seven days into January and continued throughout the year. Europe has been overwhelmed by tens of thousands of refugees from Syria, Afghanistan, and Iraq.

The most astounding thing to me is that no one wants to name the one thing these attacks have in common. This a religious war, but when you point that out, you’re decried as a “racist.” (Islam is not a “race,” by the way.)

These violent and horrifying attacks are occurring in the name of Islam, as confessed by the attackers. To ignore this is the height of politically correct cognitive dissonance.

Hanukkah: Creeping Totalitarianism

With Hannukah falling this year on Christmas Eve, Americans are being bombarded with showers of affection for the “religious holiday” called “Hannukah”.

What few understand is that “Hannukah” is not nor ever has been a “religious holiday”: Hannukah has always been a political statement, a means to mold and steel Jews into a ritual intended to bring about the fall of Western civilization.

Syrian Catholic Patriarch: West turns blind eye toward Islam's attack on Middle East Christians

In a straight-from-the-heart cry for help for the rapidly vanishing but 2,000-year-old Christian presence in Middle East, Patriarch Ignatius Joseph told the Knights of Columbus that Saudi Arabia was funding Muslim jihadists to act out a new kind of murderous intolerance, and the Western democracies were letting them do it... “We, the Church pastors, kept warning Westerners who pretended to have the right to interfere in Syria in the name of democracy, that fomenting violence would surely lead to terrible sectarian war because of the complex religious and ethnic diversity in Syria. We knew innocent people, primarily Christians and minorities, would suffer most.”

German minister sparks outrage after REFUSING to wear hijab during Saudi Arabia visit

GERMANY’S defence minister has sparked fury in Saudi Arabia after she willingly refused to wear a hijab during an official visit to the Kingdom.

According to an Iranian newspaper, Von der Leyen said: “No woman in my delegation will be required to wear the abaya, as the right to choose one’s attire is a right shared by men and women equally.”

Shortly after her meeting with the Deputy Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman al Saud, Saudis took to twitter to express their disdain for her actions.

Der Leyen wore a dark blue suit while donning the traditional ghutrah head covering.

Michael Ohnmacht, a German Embassy official, quickly tried to change the focus on the debate.

He said: “The talks between Deputy Crown Prince Mohammed and the German minister focused on ways and means to beef up Saudi German cooperation in different areas, including high-level exchanges, personally education and training, defence, mutual visits and security affairs."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The above is diplo-speak for the reality that Von der Leyen was most likely in Saudi Arabia to push weapons sales, now that Obama has denied the sales of some weapons to Saudi Arabia because of the war crimes they are committing with them in Yemen, and the reality that the Saudis funded approximately 20% of Clinton's campaign through the Foundation, and were expecting some quid pro quo, if she got elected.

Nature abhors a vacuum; that may well account for the timing of this visit.

Profits uber alles, right?!?

And please remember; back in March of this year, Germany sold choppers to Saudi Arabia.

Catholic Archbishop In Syria: Putin's Military Intervention In Syria "Serves the Christian Cause, Is A Source Of Hope... Putin Is Solving A Problem"

With all the anti-Putin & anti-Assad propaganda barraging us today, I thought this deserved a re-post. Just one year ago, Catholic archbishop Jean-Clement Jeanbart of Aleppo, Syria, said that Russian military intervention in Syria is "a source of hope" for Christians in the region, that it "serves the Christian cause," has "renewed the confidence among Christians in Syria," and that "Putin is solving a problem." Religion News reported on the bishop's visit to the U.S.: "But Jeanbart faces another challenge when he speaks to an American audience: For him, as for other Syrian Christians, Assad is not the despot that he is considered in Washington. Christians in Syria felt protected by Assad, he said, much as Christians in Iraq were under Saddam Hussein. Many on Capitol Hill, however, want to send more arms and funding to the rebels and remove Assad, who has been accused of using chemical weapons as well as being a serial violator of human rights.

Richard Williamson: Trump's Election Was A "God-given Reprieve From Years And Years Of Liberal Government"

As you may recall, Pope Benedict XVI lifted Catholic clergyman Richard Williamson's excommunication in 2009, causing an international media firestorm among the establishment, because Williamson had given a TV interview that same week scoffing at the 'Zyklon B gas chamber' myth. Here Williamson weighs in on the election of Donald J. Trump. He begins, "The essential thing to say about the election last month of Donald Trump as the next President of the United States is that it is a God-given reprieve from years and years of liberal government, but unless the American people themselves turn back seriously to Almighty God, then the reprieve will be swept away by a return of the liberals in force to destroy the United States once and for all, as Hilary Clinton would have done, had she been elected."

Pope Francis 2014: "Those Who Watch TV Or Listen To The Radio Are Not Able To Arrive At A Perfect Judgement," Media Gives Them Half-Truths & Disinfo

Pope Francis' recent comments condemning media disinformation are nothing new. In 2014 the Pontiff emphasized that no media should consider themselves too small, that everyone has an important role in their 'vocation of service.' He also said that the media should shun the mortal sins of slander, defamation, and disinformation: "But disinformation means telling half-truths, the part that is most convenient to me, and not saying the other half. Therefore, those who watch the television or listen to the radio are not able to arrive at a perfect judgement, because they do not have all the elements necessary to do so, and the media do not give them. Please, shun these three sins".
