Led by firebrand evangelist Pastor John Hagee, some 4,800 foot stomping, shofar-blowing Christian delegates traveled from across the nation and some from overseas to attend the non-stop cavalcade of podium grandiloquence, towering video effects, mesmerizing Israeli music, and special informational sessions. Part tent revival and part political salvo, CUFI’s Washington Summit is patterned after the mega-gatherings staged by the American Israel Public Affairs Committee in the same hall. CUFI speakers brought clarity and context to its attendees in the midst of the latest fog of the latest Arab-Israeli war.
Save yourselves lots of time, anguish and jet fuel, by learning a short saying in Arabic that sums up the current crisis in Gaza.“Darabni wa-baka, sabaqni wa-ishtaka.”
It is a rhyme in Arabic that means:
“He hit me and quickly cried: ‘He attacked me,’ he lied.”
It aptly describes the way Palestinian thugs and leaders—from the PLO’s Yasser Arafat and Mahmoud Abbas to the maniacs of Hamas—attack or try to cheat someone and then rush to complain about being beaten up or victimized. It is a form of misconduct perfected by Yasser Arafat. It is why other Arabs distrust the Palestinians and see them as hypocritical and ungrateful cry-babies.
Qatar has been in the American headlines recently as the nation that facilitated the release of five Taliban prisoners from the U.S. military detention center at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, in exchange for U.S. Army Sergeant Bowe Bergdahl, who is suspected of possibly deserting his unit in Afghanistan to defect to the Taliban. The Gitmo Five will remain for one year in Qatar essentially as guests of the Emir, Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani. The British-educated Sheikh is believed to be closer to the Muslim Brotherhood than many in the nation’s current leadership
A tweet from Italian journalist Gabriele Barbati tells the truth about the incident at Shati and Shifa yesterday, and it reveals even more than that:
In this one tweet, we have confirmation:
- The rocket that killed the 9 children came from Hamas.
- When Hamas made the area off limits to reporters, it was cleaning the area from any debris that could show the truth.
- Hamas intimidates even good journalists from telling the truth, so much so that they won’t report what they see while they are in Gaza.
UNRWA has a long-documented history of terrorist ties, something it’s former Commissioner General Peter Hansen openly admitted in 2004 to the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation stating, “I am sure that there are Hamas members on the UNRWA payroll … and I don’t see that as a crime.”
Mr. Hansen may not, but some of us may feel differently about a psychopathic terror organization on the UN payroll — a payroll which, by the way, is roughly 25 percent financed by the American public. ISIS has a right to complain. Why aren’t we financing them too? Aren’t they just as vicious as Hamas? Hamas may have murdered hundreds of their children building the terror tunnels, but hasn’t ISIS proved themselves by lopping off the heads of every Shiite they could find?
What is going on in the Middle East is not a war, it is a hunt against a sub-human terrorist aggressor who rejects modernity, civilization, and liberal values, and whose main objective is to destroy another people.
I ask you this question: If the Pope remains silent on the ongoing persecution of Christians, if the UN won’t act on Islamic terrorism, if feminist groups won’t stand against female genital mutilation in Iraq, if the president of the most powerful nation in the world won’t use the military might at his disposal to protect and defend the civilized world against the threat of terrorism, and if the media won’t report on any of these issues because of political correctness and leftist conformism, then where can we turn for leadership?
Whilst Israel does all that is in its power to protect the lives of all its citizens and the lives of those it is attacking, Gaza does all in its power to have all the more die.
We need to re-examine our priorities if we are marching in the streets. Unless we want to see another Mullah amongst us, where other religions aside from a certain variety of Islam are not allowed, where synagogues are used as latrines and garbage dumps and Christians are living in constant fear.
Since 9/11 and even back in the 1990s, the international community has had endless opportunities to listen to or watch commanders of the movement, under different names, uttering the same words, issuing the same ideological fatwas, and conducting the same violence against their enemies: the Muslim apostates and all infidels (including Christian, Jews, Hindus, Buddists, and atheists).
What the Islamic state has demonstrated in Mosul is the deeply rooted intentions of all jihadists. The people of Nouwn are not just the beleaguered Assyrian, Chaldean, and Syriac ancient and precarious communities of Mesopotamia or of Syria; they are all peoples who would fall under the rule of the jihadists anywhere on the planet.
All of us are Nouwn people if jihadists rule.
