A Saudi security source has revealed that a military coup to overthrow army officers loyal to King Abdullah was successfully foiled. >>>>>
“I’m going to move on to another subject that a lot of people don’t want to discuss today,” he said, “I know when I discuss it, it’s amazing, I get attacked!” The crowd listened intently as he went on, “And that’s something called 9/11!” The crowd erupted into spontaneous applause. Ventura continued and discussed the fact that on the FBI’s most wanted terrorist page, Osama bin Laden is not wanted for 9/11. He asked why expressed disgust with the Bush Administration’s stonewalling any investigation into the attacks. >>>>>
“That’s obviously going to be an issue,” the aide said. “It’s not like being the senator from New York, obviously. But these aren’t issues that are off her radar.”
Palin, joined by Sen. Joe Lieberman, expressed her “heartfelt support for Israel” and spoke of the threats it faces from Iran and others, the campaign official said. >>>>>
Hawaii’s Jewish governor, Linda Lingle, said in an interview with Ha’aretz that she would not be surprised to learn that Palin is a staunch supporter of the Jewish state since her Alaska counterpart is “a very religious person, and the religious Christians are the greatest supporters of Israel…”
Republican Jewish Coalition executive director Matt Brooks was left with the opposite impression, telling Politico.com in an email on Tuesday that the fact Palin keeps an Israeli flag on the wall of her office “clearly shows what’s in her heart.” >>>>>
We need governors, vice-presidents and presidents who want to stand up for the U.S., not other countries. Making blanket statements like this is not American, nor is it very Christian-like. I don’t believe that the Christians support war crimes committed by Israelis. Nor would I expect them to approve those committed by non-Israelis.
What is Governor Lingle’s position on the Palestinian Christians? Or are they a different kind of Christian? The Palestinian, Arab, Persian, Afghani Christians are not ardent supporters of Israel’s impunity. I don’t think the Pope and his billion followers think that Jerusalem should be taken away from Christians and Muslims.
To make a blanket statement like that is not something I would expect from the President of any nation, including the U.S. Therefore, why would a governor say so. She could not walk into half the churches in the U.S. and say the same thing without being laughed at.
Fundamentally, Christians are actually more closer to the Muslims than they are to the Jews. As are the Jews more fundamentally closer to the Muslims than the Christians in their keeping with the law. While Musilms believe in the immaculate conception of Mary, and take Jesus as a prophet with the miracles bestowed upon him as the Bible describes (in it’s original form); Jews think that believing in Jesus is hogwash, even as a prophet. So how does the governor make a comment for Christians when that same comment contradicts what Jesus himself taught?
All US military service members are supposed to “…defend the Constitution against any enemy, foreign or domestic…” If Americans themselves don’t get a free ride on breaking the law, why does Israel get this free ride? This was a very tasteless approach.
This does nothing to help Palin’s bid in becoming a representative of a secular democracy. But those in the mix are counting on her bowing on her knees to AIPAC, and that is a political primary-(pun intended). If AIPAC were CAIR, it would have been shut down and those in power would have been imprisoned after just a skosh of evidence, and furthermore indictments about espionage surfaced. Americans, including politicians, have to stop pushing for the nationalism of other nations and protect the constitution of its own.
Originally released online in March; Fitna claims that Islam and the Koran promote modern terror. The film shows footage of speeches by extreme Muslim leaders glorifying jihad and their hatred of Jews, democracy and freedom. It splices clips of graphic violent actions by radical Muslims with verses from the Koran and asserts that such verses lead to such actions. The film goes so far as to question the democratic future of Netherlands and the Western world if radical Islam is not stopped. >>>>>
Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, seeking support from Latin American nations for the Islamic state’s nuclear stance, told his Bolivian counterpart their two countries are “revolutionary” allies.
“The governments of Iran and Bolivia are natural allies and will remain supportive of one another under any circumstances,” Ahmadinejad told Evo Morales during a meeting in Tehran yesterday, according to Iran’s state-run Press TV. >>>>>
