Why Obama Fears The Gettysburg Address

President Barack Obama has elected not to attend the 150th anniversary of the Gettysburg Address on Tuesday, Nov. 19th.

No doubt,… Read more →

President Obama Removes ‘God’ From Gettysburg Address

President Obama Leaves Out An Important Word In His Reading Of The Gettysburg Address: GOD – Drops ‘God’ from Address
WASHINGTON — One nation under God? Under President Obama, maybe not so much.
As first reported on WMAL’s Chris Plante Show Tuesday, the Commander-in-Chief joined a cast of 61 other noted lawmakers, politicians, news anchors and celebrities, including every living President, in reciting the Gettysburg Address, which President Abraham Lincoln delivered on November 19, 1863.
The dignitaries all delivered the address as Lincoln had written it, including the phrase, “that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom.” (Click to listen). Curiously, however, in his version of the address, President Obama omitted the words “under God.”

“The world thinks it’s funding peace, but instead the Palestinians are funding terror”

Terror pays in the West Bank and Gaza, where killers recently freed by Israel under pressure from the U.S. are getting six-figure payments and military promotions from the Palestinian Authority. Issa Abed Rabbo, the longest serving of some 104 Palestinian prisoners to be released, is getting the standard $50,000 the PA pays to freed terrorists, plus another $60,000 and the… Read more →

Vote on “Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Ordinance” to Take Place Next Week

Arlington VA — As citizens of Albuquerque, New Mexico prepare to vote on a groundbreaking fetal pain ordinance on Nov. 19, the pro-life organization Live Action today released a new investigative video that exposes the gruesome particulars of the late-term abortion procedure and the sleazy business side of the abortion industry.

Video: Afghan Shi’ite Muslims beating themselves in memory of martyrdom

Hundreds of Afghan Shi’ite Muslims in Kabul on tuesday were beating themselves with steel-tipped chains in memory of martyrdom of Mahomet’s grandson, Hussein.

Imam Hussein was killed during battle in 680 AD in Kerbala, now part of modern day Iraq. Many Shi’ites mourn his death by trying to feel his pain.

“When I was 15 years old I started hitting myself to commemorate (Imam) Hussein’s martyrdom with our blood. I used to hit my back with the chains but now I am hitting my chest. I have promised God that as long as I am alive I would shed my blood to mark Hussein’s martyrdom because Hussein scarified himself for Allah,” Abdul Aziz Karbalaiee said.

Shi’ite Muslims make up nearly 15 per cent of the Muslim world. Other countries marking Ashura, which falls on the 10th day of the first month of the Islamic calendar, include Iran, Iraq, Lebanon, Pakistan and Syria.

Single-minded Islamic Jihad grows in Gaza’s shadows

(Reuters) – Hours after Israeli special forces killed Mohammed Assi in a shootout last month in the occupied West Bank, the Palestinian militant groups Hamas and Islamic Jihad both tried to cloak themselves in his legacy. Underscoring their shared Islamist credentials, the two groups quickly claimed the dead man as one of their own, proud to take responsibility for a… Read more →

EU Study: Jews in Germany Fear Rising Anti-Semitism

Gravestones desecrated with swastikas in a Jewish cemetery in northeastern Germany.

A vast survey conducted by the EU’s Agency for Fundamental Rights and published Friday contains troubling results almost exactly 75 years after Kristallnacht: Jews in Germany and seven other EU countries continue to live in fear of verbal or physical abuse — whether in public or, increasingly, online.

“I find it almost unbearable that religious services can only take place with police protection.”

“Anti-Semitism is one reason for me to leave Germany because I want to protect my family from any danger.”

“The anti-Semitic insults I have experienced were not from neo-Nazis or from leftists, but from ordinary people of the political center.”

638px-JuifWhat is it like for Jews to live in Europe? Are they able to practice their religion without restraint? Seventy-five years after the beginning of the Kristallnacht pogrom, also referred to as the “November pogroms,” how much harassment, discrimination and hate crime do they encounter?

On Friday, the Vienna-based European Union Agency for Fundamental Rights (FRA) released a report titled “Discrimination and Hate Crime against Jews in EU Member States: experiences and perceptions of antisemitism.” The online survey polled 5,847 self-selected individuals who identified as Jewish in Belgium, France, Germany, Hungary, Italy, Latvia, Sweden and the UK, states in which an estimated 90 percent of European Jews live.

Coping with Anti-Semitism

The survey’s results provide insight into the perceptions, experiences and self-conception of European Jews. Rather than supplying absolute figures on anti-Semitic attacks, the study focuses on the perceived danger of such attacks and how much the anxiety this causes affects their lives.

 

  • Two-thirds of respondents (66%) said that anti-Semitism is a problem in Europe, and over three-quarters (76%) noted that there had been an increase in anti-Semitic hostility in their home countries over the last five years.
  • Close to half of respondents (46%) are afraid of being verbally attacked or harassed in a public place because they are Jewish, while a third (33%) worry that such attacks could turn physical.
  • Roughly 50 percent of surveyed parents or grandparents of school-aged children worry that their children could be victims of anti-Semitic verbal insults or harassment at or on the way to or from school if they wore visible Jewish symbols in public.
  • More than half of respondents (57%) said that, over the last 12 months, they had heard or seen someone claim that the Holocaust was a myth or that it has been exaggerated.
  • About a quarter (26%) of respondents said that they had experienced some form of anti-Semitic harassment over the previous year, while 4 percent said they had experienced physical violence or threats of attack in the same period.
  • Almost one-fourth (23%) said they had been discriminated against in the last 12-month period for being Jewish.
  • Among employed respondents, 11 percent said they are most likely to experience discrimination for being Jewish at the workplace, while 10 percent said this was the case when looking for work.

The study also examined whether these incidents made it into official statistics. The overwhelming majority of respondents (82%) said that they had not reported to any authority or organization “the most serious incident, namely the one that most affected them.”
