Obama calls ‘entrepreneurship summit’ with Muslims

US President Barack Obama speaks in the East Room of the White House in Mar…

The White House on Friday announced a “summit on entrepreneurship” to build economic ties with the Islamic world, part of President Barack Obama’s outreach to Muslims. The White House said it has invited participants from more than 40 countries over five continents for the April 26-27 conference in Washington.

British and American Courts Threaten Jews’ Independence

Orthodox Jews in Britain and the United States fear that recent court cases are taking away their right to define who is Jewish and will destroy Jewish identity. Despite a recent British ruling against a Jewish school deciding who may enroll, the courts have allowed Muslim “Sharia” courts to act independent of British law. The British Court of Appeals in December overturned a lower court decision and ruled that a Jewish school violated the British Race Relations Act by not accepting a child whose mother did not convert according to Jewish law. The judges in effect took over the power from religious authorities to define who is a Jew. Britain’s Chief Rabbi Jonathan Sacks, wrote in the London Jewish Chronicle, ”Any discrimination, regardless of motive, between Jew and non-Jew, unless specifically exempted by law, has now been held to contravene the 1976 Race Relations Act.” On the Chief Rabbi’s website (chiefrabbi.org), he wrote:

“You do not have to be an expert in jurisprudence to realise that, as one of the judges put it, the court’s decision “leads to such extraordinary results, and produces such manifest discrimination against Jewish schools in comparison with other faith schools, that one can’t help feeling that something has gone wrong.”

Church leaders remain silent while Palestinian Christians suffer at the hands of the Muslims

On December 11, 2009, a group of Palestinian Christian leaders issued a 13 page document known as “Kairos Palestine-2009: A moment of truth.” Having “reached a dead end” because of the “Israeli military occupation,” the leaders appealed to churches worldwide to treat Israel as they had apartheid South Africa by divestment and economic boycott.[1]

Given that the authors of this document include Patriarch Emeritus Michel Sabbah from the Latin Patriarchate of Jerusalem, the Lutheran Bishop of Jerusalem Munib Younan, Archbishop of Sebastia Atallah Hanna from the Greek Orthodox Patriarchate, we should not be surprised with this distorted description of the plight of Christian Arabs in Gaza, Judea and Samaria.

Jewish activists planning Temple Mount ascent

A group of activists dedicated to bringing Jews to the Temple Mount told The Jerusalem Post on Tuesday that they were hoping to see hundreds of participants take part in a planned “mass pilgrimage” to the site scheduled for Thursday morning in honor of Hannuka, which celebrates the rededication of the Second Temple after it was recovered from Hellenist Greeks more than 2,000 years ago.

Are officials hiding details in hijacking ‘dry run’?

Airline silent on witness’ testimony of mock shootings aboard plane

Testimony of a passenger in the gate of Nov. 17 AirTran Flight 297 suggests the airline may be deliberately leaving out key details of an onboard incident that affirm widespread speculation the flight was the subject of a “dry run” by Muslim terrorists.

Finally, Israel gets it!

Exclusive: Joseph Farah rips into those who condone ‘blatant ethnic cleansing’ of Jews

For more than five years, I have been conspicuously alone in pointing out the racist, anti-Jewish nature of policies that require the evacuation of Israelis from Gaza, Judea and Samaria and, more lately, the halts on building and repairing homes and businesses owned by Jews in Jerusalem.

Finally, someone in Israel has figured this out and called the policies advocated by Barack Obama and the international elite what they are.

More than 100 groups sound alarm over UN

More than 100 religious and non-religious organisations, including several Muslim, have signed a petition against the proposed United Nations resolutions on the ‘defamation of religions,’ which they state will do more harm than good for religious freedom.
