U.S. Federal court is considering a lawsuit against Oklahoma Sharia Ban

Jerome Socolovsky

A U.S. federal appeals court began hearing a case Monday on an amendment to Oklahoma’s state constitution that bans Sharia, or Islamic law, as well as international law from being considered in state courts. Legal scholars say the case could affect similar moves in more than 20 other U.S. states.

In a referendum last year, 70 percent of voters in southwestern state of Oklahoma approved an amendment to the state’s constitution that forbids courts from citing international or Sharia law in their judgments.

Last November, a judge in Oklahoma blocked the amendment after the leader of a Muslim civil rights group filed a lawsuit. The judge said the so-called “Save Our State Amendment” probably violates the First Amendment of the U.S. Constitution, which separates religion and state. The lawsuit is now before the U.S. Court of Appeals based in Denver, Colorado.

Darkness engulfs Egyptian Christians

Eldad Beck UPPER EGYPT – Maha, an Egyptian merchant in her 40s, doesn’t sleep well at night. Ever since the January 25 revolution, she is experiencing a difficult period. “In the first days of the mass demonstrations against Mubarak, my mother and me couldn’t even sleep because of fear,” said the Christian Copt. “We didn’t know what will happen to us. Ever since then, even though the general security situation in the country has stabilized, our fears were confirmed.”

In recent months we have seen significant escalation in violent clashes between radical Islamists and members of the Copt minority across Egypt. It started with the lethal suicide attack in one of Alexandria’s main churches in the first days of the year, even before the popular protest against Mubarak gained steam. Twenty three worshippers were murdered and some 100 were wounded. Egyptian opposition sources claimed at the time that the attack was organized by a secret unit established by the former interior minister in order to undermine domestic stability and reinforce the regime’s hold on the country. A few weeks ago, when angry Islamist masses attacked a Cairo church where two Christian women who converted to Islam were apparently held, some charged that loyalists of the outgoing regime were identified among the radical Muslim activists. Ten people were killed in the clash, while security forces stood at the sidelines and observed

Terror groups threat U.S.churches

Becky Yeh –

With the recent airing of an al-Qaeda video that encourages Muslims to attack religious institutions, Christian churches are being warned.

In a video released by al-Qaeda spokesman Adam Gadahn, the American-born Muslim asks jihadists to quickly obtain guns and carry out terrorist attacks against the West. He states that Muslims are placed in the region to “do major damage to the enemies of Islam, waging war on their religion, sacred places, and things and brethren.”

“That’s very troubling,” admits Steve Amundson of the Florida Security Council. “Adam Gadhan lived here in Southern California for a number of years. He studied under Dr. Muzammil Siddiqi at the Islamic Center of Orange County, which is in Garden Grove.”

Gadahn’s statements to U.S. Muslims follow the death of Osama bin Laden. In response, the Christian Emergency Network has issued a warning for churches in the United States, and Amundson advises Christians to stay alert.

Obama’s Plan to Islamicize America

By Victor Mordechai

At a meeting of the David Allen Lewis “Eschatology Club” a year ago in Springfield, Missouri, where I was the featured speaker, I was told by the organizers that in the previous monthly meeting, Pastor Don Jones made a disturbing statement about President Barack Obama’s plan to Islamicize America.

Jones went to one of his orphanages in Haiti after the massive earthquake there and met with a senior UN official, who said Obama had told him that the US would be a Muslim country by 2016, or by the end of his second term in office.

While that may seem far-fetched, it is not beyond the realm of possibility. First, Obama’s biological father was a Muslim— which makes the President a Muslim. His stepfather was an Indonesian Muslim who raised Obama as a Muslim in a mosque and madrassa (Islamic religious school) in Indonesia until age 11. His halfbrothers in Kenya are Muslims.

My wife Rachel, who is a radio and TV monitor in the Arabic language for Israel Radio in Jerusalem, has picked up many broadcasts indicating that the Arabs see Obama as a Muslim. In one broadcast prior to the 2008 elections, the Saudis claimed that “we will have a Muslim in the White House.”

Coalition of the Muslim Brotherhood has been formed

by Gavriel Queenann Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood has created a coalition of 17 parties, including liberal and secular groups, to form a common platform ahead of legislative elections, Egyprian state media said Wednesday.

The new political alliance, including the Brotherood’s Freedom and Justice Party, the liberal Wafd party, the left-leaning Tagammu, and the newly formed Salafi (Muslim Fundamentalist) Noor party, say they joined forces to “channel their efforts… into building a state of law based on citizenship, equality and sovereignty of the people.”

In a statement, the parties outlined their common principles including “freedom of belief and worship”, freedom of expression and a free media, the independence of the judiciary, and “an economic system based on social justice.”

Do you know what al-Hijra is? You had better!

1Redacted from Dutch Parliamentarian Geert Wilders’ Speech …Do you know why America is better than Europe? Because you enjoy more freedom. European and Canadian people are dragged to court for telling the truth about Islam.

I, too, have been dragged to court. I am an elected member of the house of representatives in the Netherlands. I am currently standing in court like a common criminal for saying that Islam is a dangerous totalitarian ideology rather than a religion. The court case is still pending, but I risk a jail sentence of 16 months.

…I am here today with an unpleasant message. I am here with a warning. I am here with a battle cry: “Wake up, Christians of Tennessee. Islam is at your gate.” Do not make the mistake which Europe made. Do not allow Islam to gain a foothold here. Islam is dangerous. Islam wants to establish a state on earth, ruled by Islamic sharia law. Islam aims for the submission, whether by persuasion, intimidation or violence, of all non-Muslims, including Christians

The Christian predicament in Syria and Egypt

By Avi Lipkin The last few months have seen an historical earthquake or volcano if you will in the Midde East. Islamic countries, some with sizeable Christian minorities are witnessing revolutions which on the surface seem to display a desire by the peoples of the these countries for a genuine democracy, something only to be found outside of the Middle East except for Israel.

The story begins with an economic trigger of $147 a barrel for oil in 2008 leading to the near collapse of the world economy. With this near collapse of the world economy, the barrel of oil dropped back to $30 even if for only a few days, and then slowly began to climb back hovering now around the $100 dollar mark. Whether or not the world economy recovers or not, we all know that food prices have gone through the roof of this OPEC greed. Higher oil prices mean higher food prices. Food prices will continue to spiral upwards and starvation will increase in many more places.

When the Tunisian fruit/vegetable vender self-immolated himself after a humiliating arrest by a policeman and then being slapped in the face by a a Tunisian Moslem policewoman and having his produce confiscated, ostensibly for not having a license (or paying a bribe) the word got out quickly in the Tunisian streets thus setting off massive riots with the help of such hi-tech media as Google, Facebook, Twitter and U-Tube. The corruption, the lack of employment, the lack of freedom and democracy led these people in the Middle East to want and demand more, primarily what is to be found in the West where there is work, democracy and food.

These revolutions spread to Egypt, Libya, Yemen, Syria, Bahrain and other countries and threaten to spread elsewhere as well such as Saudi Arabia, Morocco and perhaps even Iran.

The Egyptian Revolution is a case in point. Christians and Moslems demonstrated together in Tahrir Square and other places calling on the overthrow of the Mubarak regime hoping for a better future. The Mubarak regime suffered from the same corruption and elitist domination of the economy by certain chosen groups. US President Obama and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton praised the “democratic revolution” in Egypt as they are now doing in Libya as well.

When the US Administration was warned of the dangers of the Moslem Brotherhood, Secretary Clinton’s response was: “They are only a 30% minority.” The problem is that throughout the Middle East, the governments are usually controlled by minority and not majority. By the way, Hitler came to power in Germany in January of 1933 with only 30% of the German democratic vote. Khomeini in Iran came to power in 1979 leading a wall-to-wall coalition of democratic forces but in the end it was his fanatic group of fundamentalist Shi’ites that eliminated all the other groups leaving only Khomeini’s group in power.

So today, the Egyptian Army in partnership with the Moslem Brotherhood are now the ruling forces. And there should be no doubt that the agenda in Egypt has never been for democracy nor is it now. On the contrary, the Islamic motto is: We kill the Jews on Saturday, and we kill the Christians on Sunday.

Now that there are no more Jews in Egypt (Saturday people), the Moslems say: “We will go for the Sunday people” (the Christians). There is no doubt that the condition of the Coptic Egyptian minority is indeed dire. Woman are being kidnapped, raped and forced to marry Moslem men who can anyway have multiple wives. When Christians protest about this, the Moslems riot and kill the Christians. Churches are being burned down and Christians gunned down. My fear is that the Egyptian Coptic community faces imminent and massive ethnic cleansing if not outright Holocaust at the hands of the Moslems.

When the Egyptian Christian community is terminated, the economy will completely collapse and Egypt will become a desolation with tens of millions of Egyptian Christians and Moslems fleeing to the West were the grass is greener and there is food, employment and freedom, at least for now.

In Syria, another country ruled by a minority, this time a pro-Iranian 10% Alawite minority, another volcano is about to explode. The Sunni population of 80% is seeking “democracy” or rule of the majority of the people. The Christian population is about 10% and until now protected by the Alawites, but if the Bashar Assad and his regime fall from power, the Sunnis, led by the same Moslem Brotherhood as in Egypt, I am afraid, will decimate both the Alawites and the Christians, thus terminating the Christian presence in Syria, and by extension the Christians in Lebanon as well. We already have seen how the Sunni/Shi’ite struggle in Iraq killed Christians and forced them to flee to Syria. Now, I am afraid, this is about to happen in Syria and by extension in Lebanon.

Unfortunately, the Christian world in the West is silent about this as are most of the churches and denominational leadership. By the no one in the Christian world is saying or doing anything about the slaughter of Christians in Africa. And, of course, as the fundamentalist Moslem Brotherhood takes over in Egypt and Syria as it already has in Turkey and Gaza, I believe we are witnessing the creation of a Sunni Caliphate that will soon be surrounding Israel as well. Could this be a Gog and Magog scenario in the making? Will the world do anything about the Christians of Egypt and Syria? Will the world do anything to stand by Israel at that time? I believe it is time for Jews and Christians to awaken and unite in an alliance for the defense of Christians, Jews, and all of Western Civilization threatened by this rising wave of Sunni Moslem Brotherhood fundamentalism.

Rep. Gohmert takes on Eric Holder

Watch this explosive video of Rep. Louie Gohmert questioning Attorney General Eric Holder during a House Justice Department oversight meeting last week.

Rep. Gohmert takes the Attorney General to task regarding Holder’s failure to pursue further indictments against organizations like ISNA and CAIR in the Holy Land Foundation terror finance trial of 2008.

Rep. Gohmert is a former chief justice of the 12th Court of Appeals in Texas and a rising star within the overall movement that is resisting the rise of radical Islam. He is one of the Members of Congress we have invited to speak at the legislative briefing portion of our national conference.

His boldness and clarity in confronting the spread of the Muslim Brotherhood’s influence in America is a refreshing change among the elected ranks in Washington and is why we at ACT! for America have invited him to speak at our legislative briefing

Obama, Islam, and the forcible virginity test

By James Lewis Two months after Obama insisted that President Mubarak had to resign after 30 years in office for not being nice enough to the “young democracy demonstrators” in Tahrir Square, the New York Times has finally stated the obvious: the Muslim Brotherhood is winning the power struggle in Egypt. Duh. Ya think?

The media have also belatedly seen fit to print the fact that sixteen unmarried women were arrested in the demonstrations in Tahrir Square, and that Egyptian military submitted all sixteen to a compulsory “virginity test” in jail, just to see if they were properly modest Muslim virgins.

Think about the sadistic “logic” of that. To see if unmarried Muslim women were virgins, obedient to Islam, they were essentially humiliated, abused, and perhaps raped in public.

Will somebody please tell Germaine Greer? Or Helen Thomas? Christiane Ahmanpour? The nearest Women’s Studies Department at your local university? Or are their phones busy again, and they’re not paying attention? Maybe they’re afraid of “Islamophobia”?

Over 4000 Muslims attack Christian homes in Egypt, and then tourch the church’s

A mob of nearly four thousand Muslims has attacked Coptic homes this evening in the village of Soul, Atfif in Helwan Governorate, 30 kilometers from Cairo, and torched the Church of St. Mina and St. George. There are conflicting reports about the whereabouts of the Church pastor Father Yosha and three deacons who were at church; some say they died in the fire and some say they are being held captive by the Muslims inside the church.

Witnesses report the mob prevented the fire brigade from entering the village. The army, which has been stationed for the last two days in the village of Bromil, 7 kilometers from Soul, initially refused to go into Soul, according to the officer in charge. When the army finally sent three tanks to the village, Muslim elders sent them away, saying that everything was “in order now.”

A curfew has been imposed on the 12,000 Christians in the village.

This incident was triggered by a relationship between 40-year-old Copt Ashraf Iskander and a Muslim woman. Yesterday a “reconciliation” meeting was arranged between the relevant Coptic and Muslim families and together with the Muslim elders it was decided that Ashraf Iskander would have to leave the village because Muslims torched his house.
