Is it just me, or is everyone fed up with whiny Atheists

A serious question for radical Atheists who lose their flipping minds when they hear the word God, why does something you DO NOT believe in offend you so?

An Atheist Group at Clemson University is offended, because a football coach has been using certain words on the field, they feel are promoting “religious coercion.”

Larry O’Connor succinctly stated:

“Clemson Tigers football coach Dabo Swinney has been targeted by a group called The Freedom from Religion Foundation (FFRF) out of Wisconsin. The organization has accused coach Swinney’s program of being saturated with “Christian worship.”

One of Swinney’s offenses is the use of his favorite motivational saying: “Run your race to win, don’t just run the race.” Nevermind that it could have come from a Dale Carnegie book or a Steven Covey seminar: the phrase is from 1 Corinthians 9:24-25, so clearly Swinney is engaged in the establishment of a state religion here. Can’t you see it?”

Another complaint from the Freedom to Whine Incessantly or whatever the aggrieved groups calls itself is that Swinney, and other coaches have, brace yourself,

Swinney directly hiring the team chaplain (even Clemson policy says the players should choose), to coaches participating in testimonials and bible studies, to buses being organized to transport the entire team to “Church Day” at a local Baptist Church.

OH NO! Not that! Not coaches sharing their faith! My God, what is next if we allow this? I mean college football players and coaches exercising their liberties? Heaven forbid!

Here is an idea for the Freedom to be Royal Pains in Everyone’s Asses Foundation Try being a bit tolerant for a change! You are nothing but a group of pin-headed bigots and bullies who cannot stand the thought of anyone, anywhere acting as they see fit without clearing it with Collectivists like you first!! And, I hope that Clemson plays your favorite school next year and beats the 84 to 0!

Feminism is not pro-woman, it is anti-woman

The Other McCain has some news that may shock you, or, given the moral retardation of Feminists, maybe not

The wretched cowardice of Brandeis University in rescinding an honorary degree for human rights activist Aayan Hirsi Ali surprised a lot of people. A victim of female genital mutilation (FGM), Ali was the target of terroristic threats in the Netherlands for speaking out against Islamic oppression of women. The question was asked, “Where’s the feminist anger at Brandeis over Ayaan Hirsi Ali?”

Brace yourself for the answer: Phyllis Chesler looked at the Brandeis faculty petition against Ali and found that 21% of the signatures came from faculty associated with the university’s Women and Gender Studies (WGS) program. As a matter of fact, it appears that the controversial petition actually originated with WGS faculty members.

Sick, sick, sick! The Left is so obsessed with “equality” and so convinced that Western culture is not  better than other cultures, that they refuse to see the truth that is plain as day to anyone with half an eye open.

The faculty petition claimed that, by honoring Aayan Hirsi Ali, Brandeis would suggest “to the public that violence toward girls and women is particular to Islam . . .  thereby obscuring such violence in our midst among non-Muslims, including on our own campus,” and concluded:  ”We cannot accept Ms. Hirsi Ali’s triumphalist narrative of western civilization, rooted in a core belief of the cultural backwardness of non-western peoples.”

Go read it all. It will stun you. It would appear that “Feminists” are Leftist, more than they are pro-women wouldn’t it? This is more about hating Western culture, and of course America, than it is about anything else. Again, to the Left mentioning that many women are treated horribly in most Islamic nations is equal to heresy. Making such judgments, even when facts support those judgments is unacceptable to the Left. Nothing, it seems is as intolerable to the Left as inequality, and noting that some religions and cultures treat women worse than others is seen by the Left as teaching inequality.

President Asshat Re-Gifts Rosary Beads Blessed By Pope Francis To Fellow Death-Cultist Nancy Pelosi

Seriously? Obama Re-Gifts Prayer Beads Blessed By Pope Francis To Nancy Pelosi Of All People – Independent Journal Review

.

.
During Barack Obama’s meeting with Pope Francis in the Vatican last week, the pope presented the president with a blessed rosary. Tuesday, Obama gave the rosary to Nancy Pelosi.

As noted by Life Site News, Pelosi is the only person in history to receive a papal sacrament and Planned Parenthood’s highest award – in the same week.

“I was happy to receive a rosary blessed by Pope Francis. It means a great deal to me,” Pelosi said.

Not everyone is as happy as is Pelosi. Adam Cassandra, communications manager at Human Life International, told LifeSiteNews:

“People could see it as somewhat disrespectful on the part of the president that he re-gifted the rosary given to him by the Holy Father,” especially to someone “who has been harshly criticized by the Vatican for championing the mortal sin of abortion in opposition to Catholic teaching.”

The level of irony here is startling. Again, in the exact same week, Nancy Pelosi was given a rosary from Barack Obama that was blessed by Pope Francis, and also received the highest honor from Planned Parenthood, the Margaret Sanger award. Why such irony?

Pelosi, who professes a deep Catholic faith, has been an outspoken opponent of the Church on the issue of abortion, and she just won an award whose namesake said such things as:

[We should] apply a stern and rigid policy of sterilization and segregation to that grade of population whose progeny is tainted, or whose inheritance is such that objectionable traits may be transmitted to offspring. Birth control must lead ultimately to a cleaner race.

We should hire three or four colored ministers, preferably with social-service backgrounds, and with engaging personalities.

The most successful educational approach to the Negro is through a religious appeal. We don’t want the word to go out that we want to exterminate the Negro population, and the minister is the man who can straighten out that idea if it ever occurs to any of their more rebellious members.

The most merciful thing that the large family does to one of its infant members is to kill it.

Last September, Vatican Chief Justice Cardinal Raymond Burke said that Pelosi must be denied communion under the law of the Catholic Church because of her longstanding support for abortion.

Were I a cynic, I’d suggest that perhaps Obama understood the irony full well, which would’ve been all the more reason to give the rosary to Pelosi.

Defining stupidity, people who think with their emotions

Churches in Illinois are debating a new law that allows people to exercise their God-given right of self-defense in churches.In the article, I was stunned at the sheer stupidity of this statement

For Pastor Betty Delgado of Trinity United Church of Christ in La Salle, however, there should be no question. 

“This is God’s property,” she said. “We’re here to love people, not think about how we have to defend ourselves.”

Delgado has no plans to post the “no firearms” sign at Trinity, and feels that it should be a non-issue.

“Nobody better have a gun there,” she said.

I wonder if people like Delgado ever think about what loving people means? If someone were to come into her church intent on committing  amass shooting, a sign would not deter them. Her feelings would not deter them either. But let us assume one of her parishioners were legally armed and used that weapon to stop the shooter, saving lives in the process. I would think saving someone’s life is an act of love. Or maybe Delgado thinks it better NOT to defend ourselves and others? I wonder if she has ever thought about that?

Historians Claim They Have Proof That A Chalice On Display In A Spanish Museum Is The Holy Grail

Jewel-Encrusted Goblet Found Gathering Dust In Tiny Spanish Museum ‘Touched The Lips Of Jesus And Is In Fact The Holy Grail’ Say Two Historians With Evidence To Prove It – Daily Mail

It is a mystery dating back millennia.

But apparently, the long-lost Holy Grail has finally been found – on display in a Spanish museum.

The onyx chalice has been sat in the Basilica of San Isidoro in Leon, north Spain, for 1000 years – touted to visitors as a goblet belonging to 11th century Queen Urraca.
.

.
But in fact, there is ‘no doubt’ it contains the cup which touched the lips of Jesus Christ, two historians claim.

In an explosive book charting three years of ‘scientific research’, Margarita Torres and Jose Ortiza del Rio reveal there is conclusive evidence from scrolls in Egypt that confirm their theory.

The onyx vessel made between 200 BC and 100 AD, they claim, is trapped inside a bejewelled medieval chalice.

.

.
According to two medieval documents written in Arabic, it was stolen from Jerusalem by Muslims, who gave it to the Christian community in Egypt.

Centuries later, in around 1050 AD, it was sent as a gift to King Fernando I of Castile to thank him for sending aid during a famine, they say.

By that point, it had been concealed with opulent decorations.

.

.
Gold inside, with patterns etched around the edges, the revered ornament is covered with pearls, emeralds, amethysts and sapphires, which the Egyptian kings will have designed to honour the well-liked Fernando.

It was housed and used in the Basilica of San Isidoro, where it remained in storage until it was put on display in the museum which opened in the 1950s.

.

.
Ms Torres, a history professor at the University of Leon, said: ‘The only chalice that could be considered the chalice of Christ is one which went via Cairo to León, and this chalice did so.

‘This is a very important discovery because it helps solve a big puzzle.

‘We believe this could be start of a wonderful stage of research.’

Happy Saint Patrick’s Day From The Daley Gator!


.
Who Is St. Patrick?

People all over the world celebrate on the 17th day of March in honor of St. Patrick, the patron saint of Ireland. Some cities have parades, most revelers wear green, and a few families commemorate the day with traditional Irish fare for their meal. However, not everyone may know who St. Patrick is.

Born in Britain during the 4th century, St. Patrick was kidnapped and enslaved by Irish raiders when he was a teenager. Although he was able to escape after six years and become a priest in Britain, he later chose to return to Ireland as a missionary, in order to help spread the teachings of Christianity to pagans. According to Irish folklore, he also used a shamrock to explain the Christian concept of Trinity to the Irish. In spite of continuous opposition from pagan leaders, he continued to evangelize for thirty years while baptizing newly converted Christians and establishing monasteries, churches, and schools. He died on March 17th and was canonized by the local church.

St. Patrick’s Day was first publicly celebrated in Boston in 1737 where a large population of Irish immigrants resided. Nearly 200 years later, the first St. Patrick’s Day parade in the Irish Free State was held in Dublin in 1931. During the mid 90′s, the Irish government also began a campaign to promote tourism in Ireland on March 17th.

While many Catholics still quietly celebrate this day of religious observance by going to mass, St. Patrick’s Day has evolved to become a celebration of Irish heritage. Through the years many symbols have been included in festivities that are reflective of Ireland’s folklore, culture, and national identity (think leprechauns, shamrocks and wearing green). Other places that join in on this celebration include Japan, New Zealand, Argentina, and Canada, along with many cities across the United States.

Iran-Backed Palestinian Terrorists Launch 60 Rockets At Israel

Iran-Backed Terror Group Launches 60 Rockets At Israel – Washington Free Beacon

Palestinian terrorists tied to Iran fired more than 60 rockets into Israel on Wednesday, causing widespread panic among Israeli citizens and throwing into jeopardy months of U.S.-led negotiations towards a peace deal.

.

.
The Iranian-backed terror group Palestinian Islamic Jihad (PIJ) reportedly claimed responsibility for firing dozens of rockets into Southern Israel.

The Palestinian al Quds Brigade’s main website claimed earlier in the morning that PIJ was responsible for the attack. PIJ says it will be releasing a statement on the attacks within the next hours.

Al Quds reported that more than 90 rockets had been fired in retaliation for what claimed is Israeli aggression and “Zionist settlements.”

The boost in rocket attacks comes just a week after Israel seized a ship carrying advanced Iranian weapons destined for the Gaza Strip.

One Israeli official was quoted on local radio as saying, “It’s a barrage such as we haven’t seen for two years,” according to reports.

PIJ officials and the terror group Hamas have been threatening to attack Israel for weeks and similar rhetoric has emerged this week from Iran, where one of the country’s military leaders claimed Tehran has its “hands on the trigger” to destroy Israel.

Early reports indicate that no Israelis were harmed in the attack, but an official readout of the damage has not yet been released.

PIJ is just “one of several [terror] groups that observers worry have been stockpiling weapons, including advanced missiles,” according to the pro-Israel advocacy group The Israel Project (TIP).

A team of PIJ terrorists on Tuesday “managed to fire a mortar at Israel,” TIP reported.

Israel’s Air Force responded to the incident, killing three of the terrorists.

The Israeli Defense Forces recently disclosed that the intercepted Iranian weapons ship was carrying a large cache of advanced weapons.

“Naval forces discovered a large Iranian weapons shipment intended for Gaza terrorists,” the IDF reported on its blog. “The shipment included powerful M-302 rockets capable of striking almost any point in Israel, including Jerusalem and Tel Aviv.”

The IDF additionally discovered “40 long-range M-302 rockets, 181 mortar shells and approximately 400,000 7.62 caliber rounds.”

While Iran “attempted to hide its involvement in the weapons shipment,” the IDF said in a statement the “containers have Iranian authenticity seals on them, including seals of the Iranian postal company.”

The IDF said via Twitter that it “will act to protect our citizens.”

Leftist Intolerance Update: Obama Regime Wins Fight To Have Christian Home-School Family Deported

Team Obama Wins Fight To Have Christian Home-School Family Deported – Weasel Zippers

The Romike family doesn’t have the values the Administration wants for legal immigration.

.

.
Via Fox News

Uwe and Hannelore Romeike came to the United States in 2008 seeking political asylum. They fled their German homeland in the face of religious persecution for homeschooling their children.

They wanted to live in a country where they could raise their children in accordance with their Christian beliefs.

The Romeikes were initially given asylum, but the Obama administration objected – claiming that German laws that outlaw homeschooling do not constitute persecution.

“The goal in Germany is for an open, pluralistic society,” the Justice Department wrote in a legal brief last year. “Teaching tolerance to children of all backgrounds helps to develop the ability to interact as a fully functioning citizen in Germany.”

On Monday, the Supreme Court declined to hear the Romeike’s appeal – paving the way for the Christian family of eight to be deported.

“I think this is a part of the Obama administration’s overall campaign to crush religious freedom in this country,” said Michael Farris, chairman of the Home School Legal Defense Association. His organization is representing family.

Christians Vow Civil Disobedience If Home-School Family is Deported – Townhall

Christians in an east Tennessee community are vowing to engage in civil disobedience if the Obama administration initiates deportation proceedings against a Southern Baptist family from Germany who sought asylum in the United States so that they could home school their children.

“It may require civil disobedience with this bunch,” said Rep. Phil Roe (R-Tenn.), who represents the congressional district where the Romeike family lives.

“I am furious about this,” the congressman told me. “You’ve got law-abiding people who did everything right who simply want to home school their kids. We used to be that great shining city on a hill. There’s some rust on that city if we are doing free people this way.”

Roe was among many Tennesseans outraged over the Supreme Court decision not to hear the Romeike’s appeal to stay in the United States. The Christian couple sought asylum in 2008 after they fled Germany so they could home school their children.

The family was initially granted asylum, but the Obama administration objected – claiming that German laws that outlaw homeschooling do not constitute persecution.

“The goal in Germany is for an open, pluralistic society,” The Justice Department wrote in a 2013 legal brief. “Teaching tolerance to children of all backgrounds helps to develop the ability to interact as a fully functioning citizen in Germany.”

Rep. Roe told me the Justice Department needs to “butt out.”

“I don’t know what the Germans are thinking, but we’re not Germany,” he said. “I don’t want to be Germany. I don’t want to be Europe. I want to be America. And right now we’re not acting very much like the America I know with the administration we have.”

Roe called Attorney General Eric Holder “one of the most dangerous people in the country” and called his department’s assault on the Romeike family “appalling and worrisome.”

“I don’t see this as a Democrat or Republican issue,” he said. “It’s an issue of religious freedom. By golly, if we don’t stand for what, what do we stand for?”

Michael Farris, the chairman of the Home School Legal Defense Association, is representing the family. He said their future in the United States rests with the Obama administration.

“President Obama has the ability to say they can stay,” Farris said. “He can take that pen and piece of paper and make this right today.”

But since that hasn’t happened there are two possible outcomes for the Romeikes and their six children.

Farris said the administration could just ignore the family and let them live in peace. But the government could also file an order of deportation. If that happens, Farris promised a vigorous fight.

“If they come after this family and seek deportation orders, we will be there with our litigation team fighting every step of the way,” he said. “It sounds like their friends and neighbors will be there in a show of solidarity and stand in the gate and prohibit the government from acting.”

And Farris isn’t speaking figuratively. A number of the Romeike’s neighbors in Morristown, Tenn. told me they are prepared to engage in civil disobedience should government agents try to deport the family.

“The Romeikes have become a part of our family,” said Dean Haun, the pastor of First Baptist Church of Morristown, where the family attends. “I don’t think there’s any question that there will be some people who will be willing to stand with them to the very end – even if it means our imprisonment.”

The Southern Baptist pastor said should that day come, he would be counted among the local residents willing to go to jail to save the family from deportation.

“If that’s what it took, yes,” the pastor said. “This is an assault in the face of Christianity in America.”

“This is one of those situations where we are just outraged,” he said. “We are angered.”

He said the Romeikes are beloved in the east Tennessee town – where Uwe is the church pianist as well as an ordained deacon.

“They are not on welfare,” he said. ‘They are not trying to live off our system. They are very productive, godly, Christian people.”

Roger “Sing” Oldham, a spokesman for the Southern Baptist Convention, told me he was deep distressed by the Obama administration’s actions.

“I’m not sure what’s more chilling – that this administration views their presence in rural east Tennessee as a threat to our nation’s economic and political well being or that this administration lobbied to deport this family to a nation determined to coercively indoctrinate the children in government sanctioned ‘tolerance’ training,” Oldham said.

Oldham said the case is simply perplexing.

“This family is the antithesis of this administration’s political agenda – a heterosexual married Christian couple desiring to teach their biblical values to well-grounded children,” he said. “For whatever reason, our government does not want them in our nation.”

State Rep. Tillman Goins told me the community is “up in arms.”

“Everybody in Morristown knows the Romeike family,” he said. “You have a family who is doing it the legal way, taking every legal step they can to ask to come to this country and to participate as citizens in this country – only to be persecuted by the United States.”

Goins introduced a resolution calling on Tennessee’s congressional delegation to defend the family.

“I don’t know if all religious liberty is under attack in this country,” he said. “It seems like Christian values are under attack more than any other religion.”

Should the day come when the immigration agents show up to take the family away, Goins said he would meet them at the front door.

“Let’s hope that it doesn’t get to that point,” he said. “(But) should it come down to it – absolutely.”

And Morristown Mayor Danny Thomas would be standing alongside the state lawmaker.

“I can tell you this – I would stand with them,” he said. “There has to be a way to work this out before it ever comes to that.”

The mayor said there are no finer folks in his town than the Romeikes.

“They are good citizens without a doubt,” he said. ‘I don’t think you’ll find anyone with a better work ethic – kind, gentle people. I know that he has deep religious beliefs and he wants to stay and so does his family. I would hope our country would be able to accommodate them. They are an asset to our country.”

Farris predicted that if the Romeikes are deported, it would spark a movement among religious liberty supporters.

“If they come for this family, it’s going to ignite a movement that’s going to be the same as when they told courageous Rosa Parks to go to the back of the bus and she wouldn’t go,” Farris said.

“I think we may be approaching a similar moment in our country.”

Convert to Catolicism planned to kill American troops returning from Iraq and Afghanistan

Oh, wait, did I say he converted to Catholicism? My mistake, take a wild guess what religion he DID CONVERT TO!

Via IPT:

A New York man pleaded guilty Wednesday to plotting an attack on American police and soldiers returning from Afghanistan and Iraq. Jose Pimentel (a/k/a Muhammad Yousuf), a Dominican convert to Islam living in Harlem, wanted to use homemade pipe bombs in the attack.

According to the original criminal complaint, Pimentel’s website, .trueislam1.com, advocated violence against Americans. For example, an article titled, “Why Usamah Ibn [sic] Laden is the Leader of the Believers,” said that “People have to understand that America and its allies are all legitimate targets of warfare. This includes, facilities such as army bases, police stations, political facilities, embassies, CIA and FBI buildings, private and public airports, and all kinds of buildings where money is being made to help fund the war.”

In recorded conversations with a government informant, Pimentel discussed targeting Americans using explosive devices, including killing returning marines and soldiers who fought in Iraq and Afghanistan. He suggested buying bomb components from Home Depot. “That is what I really want to get into because it’s so cheap and it could do a lot of damage,” Pimentel said in a September 2011 conversation. “[A]nd then that’s something worth going to jail for, you know. Like, if you get caught because you blew up half of a side of a police station.”

OK, he has confessed now take him to any Redneck bar in Alabama, announce what he did, and let nature take its course! 

Obama-Supported Syrian “Rebels” Besiege Christian Villiage, Slaughter Residents, Behead Children

Syrian Rebels Behead And Kill Children In Christian Villages – Conservative Infidel

.

.
Obama’s proxy war on Christianity continues in Syria as his Al Qaeda allies ruthlessly attack and kill innocent unarmed civilians. They are even beheading children. That’s a manly and moral group Hussein is supporting. Those kids must have had it coming. Way to take the moral high ground, Obama!

In typical Hussein “Fast and Furious” fashion, his weapons that he provided and his “freedom fighters” are killing in the name of the United States.

And there is an interesting twist to this that may offer insights into the underlying mission of both Hussein Obama and his Al Qaeda foot soldiers. Some of the inhabitants of the village of Maaloula, where this latest round of inhumanity is occurring, were given the option of converting to Islam or having their heads cut off.

Not the most attractive of options but hey, they’re Christians, so in Hussein’s world, Al Qaeda is just doing the “lord’s work”. Of course the usual gratuitous shouts of “Allahu Akbar” could be heard. Can’t have a bloodthirsty murder spree without that!

We are in the middle of a “Twilight Zone” type of insanity that borders on unbelievable. How did we go so wrong in such a short period of time?

Security forces rushed to the area after hearing the explosion. They arrested 22, many of them wounded.

Car bombs are the weapon of choice and among the deadliest used by the terror group Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant, an al-Qaeda offshoot.

The bomb assembly area was in the village of al-Jalam, a rural farming area outside of Samarra. The nature of the area permitted for easy travel to and from for the militants without being discovered.

Iraqi police verified that the incident was an instructional session which went bad. Of course, that depends upon one’s perspective. Those for whom the explosives were intended would likely have a completely different opinion of the event.

Commie Lunatic Update: NYC Mayor De Blasio Wants To Close Public Schools For Muslim Holidays

Loony-Left NYC Mayor Bill De Blasio Wants To Close Public Schools For Muslim Holidays – Liberty Unyielding

How many Muslims does it take to close New York City Public Schools? The answer is 69,985 – roughly 21/2500 of the total population of the Big Apple – going by the most recent demographic breakdown (2000 Census).

.

.
The scant size of the Muslim community hasn’t deterred the city’s new absurdly liberal mayor, Bill de Blasio, from pushing to close city schools for two Muslim holidays and the Lunar New Year. The Daily News reports (h/t Weasel Zippers) that hizzoner appeared on WNYC’s “Brian Lehrer Show” on Monday, where he announced his plan to publicly observe the Muslim holy days of Eid al-Fitr and Eid al-Adha, as well as the Islamic New Year, with school closures. Said the mayor:

It is complicated in terms of logistics and school calendar and budget. But it’s something I want to get done in a reasonable time frame.

Reactions were not solicited from the 99% of students who aren’t Muslim, though it is doubtful many of them will complain about extra days off from school. Their parents – especially those in families where both work and need to make special arrangement for school closures – are likely a different story.

Ditto for de Blasio’s predecessor, the extreme (but not nearly as extreme in hindsight) Mayor Michael Bloomberg, who opposed the change, saying kids should not miss more school.

Defenders of the move will point to the longstanding tradition of New York Public Schools closing for the Jewish “high holidays” of New Year and Yom Kippur, but Jews, who number around 1.1 million, make up 13% of the city’s population.

In the meantime, the city’s Hindu population, though not as “heavily” represented as Muslims, feels slighted that de Blasio hasn’t yet taken a firm position on whether schools should close for Diwali, the festival of lights. Dr. Shashi Shah of the Association of Indians in America is quoted as saying:

We are disappointed. We’ve been trying for a long time… It’s very important for the community.

Observers of Festivus have not weighed in.

Obama Family Discovered To Be Part Of Secret Muslim Terror Operation (Walid Shoebat)

Obama Family Discovered To Be Part Of Secret Muslim Terror Operation – Walid Shoebat

The Obama family’s legacy – although most today would not even consider saying it – will one day be etched in history books under the heading, “How a family of terrorists fooled America”. They have promoted Wahhabist interests in Saudi Arabia and were the greatest supporters of the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt.

.

……………….Sayyid Obama, Barack Obama, and Malik Obama.

.
And now more damning evidence reveals the Hamas financing connections of President Obama’s brother, Malik Obama, adding further to what we previously disclosed. The Islamic Dawa Organization (IDO) Malik Obama helps lead as Executive Director, is a member organization of “The Union of Good” (UG), which the U.S. Treasury designated as “Terrorist”.

The official website for UG still shows the IDO of Malik and his boss Suar al-Dhahab as being an official member organization in the coalition. UG is an umbrella organization that represents over 50 Islamic fundraising groups worldwide and was designated by the U.S. Department of Treasury as a terrorist entity under Executive Order 13224:

NAME OF ENTITY ADDED ON 11-12-08 UNION OF GOOD (a.k.a. 101 DAYS CAMPAIGN; a.k.a. CHARITY COALITION; a.k.a. COALITION OF GOOD; a.k.a. ETELAF AL-KHAIR; a.k.a. ETILAFU EL-KHAIR; a.k.a. I’TILAF AL-KHAIR; a.k.a. I’TILAF AL-KHAYR), P.O. Box 136301, Jeddah 21313, Saudi Arabia

This authorizes the U.S. government to block the assets of organizations and individuals that provide financial support to terrorist organizations. According to the U.S. Department of Treasury, Hamas leadership founded the UG in 2000 shortly after the inception of the second Intifada with the purpose of facilitating the transfer of funds to Hamas.

But how could this happen if his brother is U.S. President?

Now for the damning evidence. According to the UG website’s home page, the two main photos of its two greatest leaders are #1 president of its organization Yusuf al-Qaradawi (the unwavering supporter for Hezbollah, Hamas and Palestinian Islamic Jihad) and the #2 man is none other than Suar al-Dhahab, Malik Obama’s direct boss.

.
On the Trustees list, Yusuf al-Qaradawi is also listed as #1 President and Suar al-Dhahab is #2 as vice-president (if you use Google translate here, you’re likely to see al-Dahab’s name translated into English as ‘gold bracelet’ due to Arabic names having specific meanings).

On UG’s Contributing Institutions page, one of the partners listed is Malik Obama’s IDO:

*Note: The U.S., Wikileaks and Israel err by calling it “Association” when it should be “organization” (Munazamat). The Arabic is correct (Munazzamatal-Da’waal-Islamiia) from the U.S. but the Arabic is incorrect from Israel (Munazzamat Al-Dawa Al Islamic). It should read “Munazamat Al-Dawa Al Islamia”.

The website even provides the method to donate that includes all the affiliated organizations, even Malik’s IDO, with contact information to send the contributions for Hamas:

.
………….

.
While IDO funded Hamas throughout the years, it still does and is still part of the coalition of the UG (Union of Good). Again, the U.S. Treasury Department has designated the Union of Good – a worldwide collection of charities headed by global Muslim Brotherhood leader Yusuf al-Qaradawi – as a terrorist entity as a result of its fund-raising activities on behalf of Hamas. This designation is also in Israel. (see #19 and also here)

The IRS granted a terror funding outfit the ability to operate under a 501(c)(3) and the worst part is we’re talking about the brother of the U.S. President. Everything we reported adds up; the Obama family, to include Grandmother Mama Sarah, Uncle Sayid Obama, Cousin Musa Ismail Obama and now Malik Obama, is part of a clandestine team that funds terrorism. Some questioned the links we provided, complaining that we only provided limited websites of Malik’s IDO. The fact is, there is a plethora of forums and religious websites (some very prominent). There are also universities and even sports clubs raising funds for Hamas and asking donors to send the money to the Sudan’s IDO. To show the volume of websites, we included but a few below.

Obama’s Al-Qaeda Allies Pre-K And Kinder Jihad Training Program – Conservative Infidel

.

.
In the mind of those who are obsessed with killing, it’s never too earlier to start your children down that path.

This is the four-year-old son of one of the al-Qaeda “freedom fighters” allied with Barack Obama and John McCain. He’s already learning how to shoot the enemy and the infidels before he can even read. There might be a shortage of books in his village, but thanks to America’s arming of our enemies, there’s plenty of bullets to go around.

These are the moderates that John McCain was so insistent on us helping with arms and “humanitarian aid” so they could overthrow the Syrian government. Is this really the kind of people we want to help run a government?

McCain has assured us these are moderates. Perhaps the radical elements start their children out at age three.

Famous Last Words- It Cant Happen Here

Chris warns us all of what might be looming for Catholics, and the Catholic Church

And so, thinking about Msgr. Desmond’s homily, this description of the French Revolution sounds like it could have come right out of a DNC press release:

The new rational state, whose primary ideological plank was that the sovereignty of “the people” is unlimited, attempted to eliminate French traditions, norms, and religious beliefs.

The revolutionary governing bodies were particularly determined to destroy every vestige of the Roman Catholic Church because France was hailed by Rome as the Church’s “eldest daughter” and the monarch had dedicated “our person, our state, our crown and our subjects” to the Blessed Virgin.

The Constituent Assembly began the campaign against the Church by stating in the Declaration of the Rights of Man, “no body or individual may exercise any authority which does not proceed directly from the nation.” In other words the Church could no longer have any say in public matters. The secular state would now have the final word over every aspect of human and social life.

Cradle to grave statism, Obama-style!

The government will redefine marriage, and ominously demand that you abstain from objecting to their“evolving awareness.”

The government will redefine family, and malevolently put the Catholic Church out of the adoption business because it won’t go along.

The government will demand to monopolize education, while Obama atrociously calls Catholic schools “divisive.”

The government will encourage you to murder your unborn child. And coldly prevent the Church from asking you not to.

The government will dictate the terms of your health care, and more importantly suppress any attempt by the Church to influence your choices. They’ll even trot out misguided catholics to reassure you thatopen schism with Rome is The American Way.

The Chicago Way, of course, involves intimidating your enemies. Or jailing them.

Who will be the first Catholic priest Obama locks up?

And, of course, other churches would not be far behind if they chose not to ‘evolve’ would they?

Win For Little Sisters Of The Poor As USSC Issues Injunction Against Contraception Mandate

Supreme Court Issues Injunction Against Contraception Mandate – Townhall

This afternoon, the Supreme Court issued an order for an injunction against forcing private businesses to apply for an exemption to Obamacare’s contraception mandate.

.

.
The Little Sisters of the Poor – a Catholic group that cares for the old and infirm – have challenged Obamacare’s contraception mandate on the grounds that it violates religious liberty. The Supreme Court is considering the case, and while the case is under consideration, it has issued a temporary order that businesses will not have to provide contraception coverage, or to follow the Obama Administration’s “guidelines” to fill out the paperwork required to provide contraception coverage indirectly.

As Buzzfeed’s Chris Geidner reported:

The unsigned order of the court “should not be construed as an expression of the Court’s views on the merits” of the case, currently on appeal before the 10th Circuit Court of Appeals.

Filed with Justice Sonia Sotomayor, she referred the request to the entire court. She had issued a temporary injunction on Dec. 31 while considering the nuns’ request for an injunction during the appeal. There were no filed dissents to the continued injunction.

There’s no timeline for when SCOTUS will issue its final ruling.

As Fox News detailed, the Little Sisters of the Poor case represents a nightmare for the Obama Administration:

For an administration seeking to win a skeptical public over to ObamaCare, the Justice Department could not have picked a more sympathetic foe for a Supreme Court fight than The Little Sisters of the Poor.

The administration is fighting back against a lawsuit filed by the non-profit, which does not meet ObamaCare’s classification of a “religious employer” because it hires and tends to people of all religious and ethnic backgrounds.

Supporters say The Little Sisters of the Poor epitomize service by caring for the elderly poor and those deemed “worthless” by society. In the United States, it runs 30 homes where hundreds of its employees provide nursing and end of life care.

Most Corrupt DOJ In History To Prohibit Federal Agents From Considering ‘Religion’ In Terror Investigations

Obama-Holder DOJ To Prohibit Agents From Considering ‘Religion’ In Terror Investigations – Gateway Pundit

There have been 22,260 deadly terrorist attacks carried out by Islamists since 9-11.

No other religion or ideology, including leftism, comes close to matching these numbers.

.

.
Despite these facts, Attorney General Eric Holder will not even mutter the words “radical Islam.” And, now the Holder Department of Justice will forbid federal agents from considering religion in their investigations.

The New York Times reported, via Jihad Watch:

The Justice Department will significantly expand its definition of racial profiling to prohibit federal agents from considering religion, national origin, gender and sexual orientation in their investigations, a government official said Wednesday.

The move addresses a decade of criticism from civil rights groups that say federal authorities have in particular singled out Muslims in counterterrorism investigations and Latinos for immigration investigations.

The Bush administration banned profiling in 2003, but with two caveats: It did not apply to national security cases, and it covered only race, not religion, ancestry or other factors.

Since taking office, Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr. has been under pressure from Democrats in Congress to eliminate those provisions. “These exceptions are a license to profile American Muslims and Hispanic-Americans,” Senator Richard J. Durbin, Democrat of Illinois, said in 2012.

President George W. Bush said in 2001 that racial profiling was wrong and promised “to end it in America.” But that was before the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11. After those attacks, federal agents arrested and detained dozens of Muslim men who had no ties to terrorism. The government also began a program known as special registration, which required tens of thousands of Arab and Muslim men to register with the authorities because of their nationalities.

Let’s face it. We are being led by a group of far-left imbeciles.

Radical Muslim Secures U.S. Visa Despite Endorsing Suicide Bombings And The Execution Of Homosexuals

Radical Syrian Cleric Secures U.S. Visa Despite Endorsing Suicide Bombings – Big Peace

A Syrian sheik who labeled all Jews as legitimate targets for suicide bombers and who supports the death penalty for homosexuals is the latest extremist Muslim cleric raising money for Syrian-American groups supporting dictator Bashar al-Assad’s ouster.

.

.
Sheik Mohammad Rateb al-Nabulsi is in the middle of an 11-city tour across America on co-sponsored by the Syrian American Council (SAC) and the Wylie, Texas-based Shaam Relief.

A promotional announcement hails al-Nabulsi as “an internationally-known Muslim scholar, renowned for his scholarship of Islam, who has lent his formidable clerical authority to support human rights, tolerance and respect for all.”

But tolerance is not part of his preaching when it comes to perceived enemies.

Asked about Palestinian suicide bombings in April 2001, al-Nabulsi said he was “too insignificant to give a Sharia ruling or fatwa.” Instead, he extensively cited from two previous fatwas from radical clerics which bless such attacks.

“All the Jewish people are combatants” acceptable as targets for attacks in Israel, al-Nabulsi wrote in his “ruling on martyrdom operations in Palestine.”

“They do not have a career that a military rank does not encounter: doctor, pilot, engineer, for example, is a tank commander. Every civilian, citizen,” he wrote. “They do not have a regular army; they have a reserve army, and all the people can fight, so this is essentially an entirely aggressive entity from A to Z. This is the Sharia ruling.”

Al-Nabulsi’s comments on suicide bombings remain on his website.

Suicide bombings are acceptable because of the overwhelming disadvantage Palestinians have in fighting Israel, he said. And they are effective.

“Therefore beware, the enemy calls the operations suicide, they say: suicide operation to deceive

Muslims, that this is suicide, but we should call them martyrdom operations. A young man in the prime of his years sacrifices his life and shakes an entity,” he wrote. “There is frightening talk. Soon tourism in Israel has become zero; soon immigration to Israel became thirty percent from the impact of these actions. It fell thirty percent. The real fact us that it began now. By God Almighty it was proven to them, It gives victory over them, and inspires us to help them in any way.”

He called Jews the “worst enemies of God” and Islam and “a hotbed of vices and evils.”

The scope of his fatwa is limited to Israel. But it is not his only call to violence. Al-Nabulsi believes that Muslims should violently fight those who “impose their culture… and pornography” on them, as well as those who humiliate Muslims, occupy their lands and take their money, an August 2006 sermon shows.

Yet, al-Nabulsi apparently obtained a visa from the State Department allowing him to conduct his fundraising tour. Under current policy, a foreign national applying for a U.S. visa who is known to have promoted jihad and suicide bombings would be ordinarily deemed “undesirable” and denied a visa, government officials who have been involved in deciding who gets a visa from hostile countries told the Investigative Project on Terrorism (IPT).

The State Department declined to comment. “Visa records are confidential under U.S. law under the Immigration and Nationality Act,” State Department spokeswoman Katherine Pfaff said in response to an IPT query.

Al-Nabulsi already has visited Spring Hill, Fla., near Tampa; Orlando; Charleston, W.Va.; Milwaukee; Paterson, N.J.; and Falls Church, Va., for the two groups. Shaam Relief raised $65,000 during the Tampa-area stop, according to the charity’s Facebook page.

In Tampa, al-Nabulsi posed for a photograph with Hatem Fariz. In 2006, Fariz pleaded guilty to conspiring to provide goods or services to the Palestinian Islamic Jihad. In doing so, he admitted communicating with Ramadan Shallah, who has been the PIJ secretary general since 1995, about a shipment of tapes of Shallah’s statements about the PIJ.

In Paterson Thursday, al-Nabulsi spoke at the Islamic Center of Passaic County. That mosque is led by Mohamed Qatanani, who is fighting deportation efforts based on a 1993 arrest in Israel in which he admitted being a member of Hamas. In addition, Qatanani advocates for blasphemy laws, saying free speech does not give Americans the right to mock things holy to Islam.

Al-Nabulsi will be making two stops in the Detroit area this coming weekend before concluding his tour Jan. 25 in Dallas.

In November, a similar fundraising tour featured Sheik Osama al-Rifai, who endorsed a coalition of jihadist groups called the Islamic Front. He helped raise $3.6 million for the Syrian Sunrise Foundation, which shares several board members with the SAC.

The SAC is one of the major groups lobbying in Washington for support against Assad in Syria.

Many of the Syrian American Council’s members are former members of the Syrian Muslim Brotherhood, Molham al-Droubi, a member of the Syrian Brotherhood’s executive committee told the IPT in an exclusive interview. Al-Droubi, however, said there were not any institutional links between the SAC and the Syrian Muslim Brotherhood.

SAC President Talal Sunbulli is among the current or former members of the Muslim Brotherhood who enjoy a role in the organization, according to an international phone book of Muslim Brotherhood members seized by federal investigators. Hussam Ayloush, who runs the Council on American-Islamic Relations’ (CAIR) Los Angeles office, serves as chairman of the organization’s board of directors.

The SAC’s leaders have a history of minimizing the radical Islamist threat in Syria.

Its government relations director Mohammed Ghanem criticized the United States for classifying Jabhat al-Nusra, one of al-Qaida’s two Syrian affiliates, as a terrorist organization in a December 2012 column published in the Washington Post. Ghanem said the move was “disastrous” for how “mainstream” Syrians viewed the United States.

Jabhat al-Nusra’s connection with al-Qaida was known about several months before Ghanem wrote his piece.

Meanwhile, al-Nabulsi’s calls for violent jihad are not limited to Jews in Israel. He includes the Western push for same-sex marriage among the things Muslims need to fight in their jihad.

“So as they would not impose their pornography, and so as not to give us a lesson that marriage is a contract between two persons; not necessarily a man and a woman; it may be between two men or two women,” he wrote in 2010. The message is followed by a verse from the Quran: “And fight them until there’s no more fitnah (disbelief and worshipping of others along with Allah). And (all and every kind of) worship is for Allah (Alone). ” [Al-Baqarah : 193]

Al-Nabulsi took his jihad against homosexuals a step further during an April 2011 talk on Hamas’s al-Aqsa TV.

“Homosexuality offers a filthy place and does not generate offsprings. Homosexuality leads to the destruction of the homosexual,” Al-Nabulsi said. “That’s why homosexuality carries the death penalty.”

Inviting Nabulsi to speak on behalf of the SAC is ironic considering Ayloush’s past statements.

“[I]t is also extremely important to remember that even one person’s support for targeting civilians is one too many. Regardless of one’s religion or belief system, any support for violence should never go unnoticed or unaddressed,” Ayloush wrote in a June 2007 commentary in the Los Angeles Daily News.

Yet Ayloush has been silent about al-Nabulsi’s visit on his Facebook page and in his Twitter feed. Ayloush did not respond to an IPT question sent to his Twitter account asking if he had any objections to al-Nabulsi’s invitation.

But Ayloush is quick to dismiss anyone who connects Islam with violence and hatred as a bigot or an “Islamophobe.”

A Muslim who claims that Islam sanctions bombing innocent civilians was no different than a “KKK member who claims a biblical basis in committing bigoted crimes,” Ayloush told a Southern California newspaper after last April’s Boston Marathon bombing.

“Islam’s teachings are very clear in protecting the sanctity of life,” Ayloush said. “Anyone who claims to be a Muslim cannot act in opposition to those teachings.”

Ayloush denounced anti-Semitism during the 2009 Gaza War in a column he wrote for the Jewish Journal, saying that Islam condemns “all forms of bigotry.”

“Islam not only denounces, in the strongest manner possible, all forms of bigotry,” he wrote, “but specifically teaches Muslims to revere and follow all Hebrew prophets who are praised in the Quran.”

Ayloush’s organization, CAIR, was created by members of a Muslim Brotherhood network in the United States called the Palestine Committee, the committee’s own records show. These records were seized by federal investigators and admitted into evidence in 2007 and 2008 during prosecutions of another Palestine Committee branch called the Holy Land Foundation for Relief and Development.

Internal documents seized by the FBI show that CAIR and its founders, Omar Ahmad and Nihad Awad, were a part of the Palestine Committee. Both men appear on a telephone list of Palestine Committee members (Ahmad is listed under a pseudonym “Omar Yehya), and CAIR is listed on a meeting agenda listing the committee’s branches.

“[U] ntil we can resolve whether there continues to be a connection between CAIR or its executives and HAMAS,” an FBI official wrote in 2009, “the FBI does not view CAIR as an appropriate liaison partner.” In a 2009 ruling, the presiding judge wrote that he saw “ample evidence to establish the associations of CAIR… with Hamas.”

Asked to condemn Hamas as recently as November, Ayloush angrily said the very act of asking the question was “not acceptable,” and “proves that you have nothing but bigotry in you.” In a blog post a year ago, Ayloush offered his view of groups deserving the label “terrorist.”

“It is used by Israel to describe Palestinians who oppose its illegal and brutal occupation of their land,” he wrote. When it came time to name groups Ayloush accepts as terrorist, no Palestinian entities were included. Instead, he listed “Al Qaeda, Jewish Defense League, KKK, Neo-Nazis, and many others which have engaged in terrorism.”

Fateen Atassi, who also heads the group’s Chicago chapter, is another SAC board member who has had close relations with CAIR. Atassi appeared at a joint press conference with the CAIR Chicago’s Executive Director Ahmed Rehab in August 2012 to protest against the bloodshed in Syria.

Shaam Relief, the other sponsor of al-Nabulsi’s tour, has its own radical streak. Director Ghassan Hitto actively supported the defendants during the Holy Land Foundation’s Hamas-support trial. Hitto pushed the talking point that HLF’s only crime was helping suffering Palestinian children during a July 2007 event in Plano, Texas sponsored by a pro-Holy Land Foundation coalition called the Hungry for Justice Coalition.

“Hungry for Justice is a coalition that strongly believes feeding hungry children, orphans, widows or men is not a crime,” he said. “Hungry for Justice is a coalition that strongly believes opposing the brutal Israeli occupation of Palestine is not a crime. Hungry for Justice is a coalition that strongly believes in due process. Hungry for Justice is a coalition that strongly believes in the first amendment and the freedom of speech.”

Last March the Syrian National Council, the main political arm of the anti-Assad uprising, named Hitto as its interim prime minister. Hitto served in this post until July when he resigned because he could not form an interim government. He was a member of the SAC’s board of directors prior to his appointment as prime minister.

The SAC is not alone among Syrian-American groups in working with pro-jihadist clerics. Last month Mouaz Moustafa, who heads the Syrian Emergency Taskforce (SETF), argued that the United States should reach out to the Islamic Front. He called the jihadist coalition the “best hope” for the West to fight al-Qaida in Syria, although some of the Front’s leaders have friendly relations with Jabhat al-Nusra.

“They should also be seen as the best hope against al-Qaida and the extremists in Syria and also against Hizballah and Assad,” Moustafa said in a podcast. “I think the international community and the West in general must engage with the Islamic Front and need to be more pragmatic and realistic about what is going on ground in Syria in order to bring them on board with whatever political solution will happen in the future.”

Inviting al-Nabulsi and al-Rifai, together with Moustafa’s favorable statements about the Islamic Front suggest that the leaders of these Syrian-American groups may not be as moderate as they publicly claim.

Do you believe in miracles?

Do I believe God is real, yes! do I believe he can heal the sick? Of course!

An Israeli woman and her doctor say they believe the malignant, rapidly growing cancerous tumor in her leg was healed by prayer.

Therese Daoud recounted her experience to Israel’s Channel 2 on Friday night after she was diagnosed with a malignant tumor in her leg. After the surgery to amputate her limb was canceled three times for bureaucratic reasons, the devout Christian woman believed it was a sign that she should forego medical intervention and instead pray.

Miraculously when she arrived at her next screening five months after her initial diagnosis, doctors discovered her tumor had completely disappeared.
