International News Article | "German Chancellor Angela Merkel likened Iran's nuclear plans on Saturday to the threat posed by the Nazis in their early days, as top U.S. officials urged a tough line to stop Tehran from making an atomic bomb."
I suspect that the war with Iran is coming. My guess? A bombing run by Israel, followed by invasion from France, England, the USA, Germany, and others. Russia will squawk, but they have become irrelevant. China will watch, N. Korea will sneer. India will continue to build her economy to become the major economic power of Asia. Just guessing. Not a prophet or the son of a prophet.

Congressional liberals will wet their pants but they are also irrelevant.

A most dangerous era. A lot of casualties in the future.

Arab Cartoons Trash 9/11, Holocaust: "One knee-slapper that ran Qatar's Al-Watan newspaper nine months after the 9/11 attacks shows former Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon watching as an Israeli plane crashes into the World Trade Center. The Arabic words alongside the Twin Towers are 'The Peace.'
Then there's the cartoon that appeared in the Jordanian newspaper Ad-Dustur in October 2003, which depicted the railroad tracks to Auschwitz-Birkenau.
The punchline? Israeli flags have replaced the swastikas flying above the death camp - with a caption that reads: 'Gaza Strip or the Israeli Annihilation Camp.�
And for those who can't appreciate the humor in that tableau, there's always the cartoon that ran in Saudi Arabia's Arab News in April 2002, which shows Prime Minister Sharon wielding a swastika-shaped axe to chop up Palestinian children.
As Mr. Gross notes: Most print media in the Arab world are under the full or partial control of the ruling regimes. "
'Nuff said. A man is known by his enemies as well as by his friends. The wise man can tell the difference.
Excite News: "Indonesian Foreign Ministry spokesman Yuri Thamrin said the dispute pitted 'the whole Islamic world vis-a-vis Denmark and vis-a-vis the trend of Islamophobia.'"
"Islamophobia" indeed. I know the cure. Let the Mullah renounce publicly the inlammatory language of hate, i.e. calling America the "Great Satan." Let them begin to treat their women with dignity and respect, allowing them basic God-given liberty and rights. Let them renounce war as a means of spreading Islam. Let them admit Christian ministries and churches into their lands. Let them allow Christian schools in their lands. Let them allow the free distribution of Bibles in their lands. Who is afraid of whom? When they allow as many Bibles is Islamic land as there are Korans in America and when there are as many Christian missionaries working and living safely in Islamic lands as there are Islamic missionaries living safely in America, then the talk of "Islamophobia" will not be necessary. Old debate technique: accuse your enemy of what you are yourself.

You don't build walls to defend the truth; you build walls to keep the truth out. Truth doesn't need defending and walls will not keep it out.
DRUDGE REPORT FLASH 2006�: "A woman accused of using racial epithets while waiting for food at a Connecticut Taco Bell drive-through window was arrested Wednesday."
Interesting. Should we now arrest Julian Bond of the NAACP for calling Republicans "Nazis" and that Colin Powell and Condoleezza Rice are "tokens"?

The trouble with using words in extreme ways is that it is always self-defeating. Calling Republicans "Nazis" will not make people think that the Republicans are nasty. They know Republicans and in the last election more Americans voted for President Bush than anyone in the history of America. But most Americans don't know the Nazis or how nasty they were because history isn't taught anymore. All they know is what they get on the history channel, and who watches that? Too many American kids don't know anything about history and cannot tell the difference between World War I and World War II. They think Martin Luther was a civil rights leader in the sixties and that Benedict Arnold is a way to fix eggs for breakfast.

So to call Republicans "Nazis" will not attach disgust to the name of the Republicans we know; instead, it will make people think that the Nazis were not so bad. After all, George Bush seems like a rather decent fellow; "I wonder what it was about Hitler?"

But believe me. Dubya is not Adolph. Do you think that a Julian Bond type could have said what he did in Hitler's Germany, saying that the Nazis were no better than Spanish Inquisition under Torquemada. And no, Torquemada was not an early model of a Ford sedan.

But turn the Bond types loose. Our black citizens can think for themselves and cannot help but respect the likes of Colin Powell, Thomas, and Rice and other distinguished black republicans. Bond's stupidity will just make more black Republicans. Amen to that.

Compare and Consider

A few days ago, Pat Robertson made some stupid remarks about the Prime Minister of Israel--something about him being punished for giving away the land. He later, under protest from CHRISTIANS, apologized for his remarks.

Where is the self-discipline among the clerics of Islam in the flap over cartoons in Denmark papers? Are they telling their firebrands to shut up and go home and stop being idiots in trying to suppress free speech? No, because Islam does not believe in free speech except in countries that do they not control. Free speech in Saudi Arabia, or Iran, or Saddam's Iraq? You have to be kidding.

There is not even any protest from the so-called American moderate Islamists about the idiocy of the protests around the world.

It is time for Europe and America to realize the nature of the enemy--yes, enemy--that we face. The religion of the Prophet dsires nothing but the political and religious oppression and suppression of Christianity. If not, then let them say so with the same vigor and energy that they use against Danish cartoons and Salmon Rushdie. If they hold Western values, then let them stand for them. Thin skins belong to Nazis and other philosophies and theologies that cannot stand the sunlight.
BBC NEWS | Europe | Muhammad cartoon row intensifies: "Newspapers across Europe have reprinted caricatures of the Prophet Muhammad to show support for a Danish paper whose cartoons have sparked Muslim outrage. "

Every paper in the free world should publish them. Will Islam get to decide what is published in the papers? Europe better wake up. Those editors who waffled and ran like chickens on this issue have just surrendered their papers to the Muslim clerics.

Do you think that Christians could decide what the papers in Saudi Arabia print or don't print?

United Press International - Security & Terrorism - Some US troops question Woodruff coverage: "At least 2,242 troops have died in Iraq since the war's start, 1,753 of them killed in action. Another 16,000 have been injured, half of them seriously enough to require evacuation from the battlefield. According to the Pentagon, 60 percent of the deaths are the result of IEDs. IEDs have injured more than 9,200 troops, nine times more than gunshots.
'The point that is currently being made (is that) that press folks are more important than mere military folks,' a senior military officer told UPI Tuesday. "

I am sorry Woodruff got blown up, but I wouldn't trade one of these brave Marines for ten thousand newsmen. The modern liberal newsman works against the liberty and constitutional guarantees of the American people. Our brave soldiers defend our freedoms and liberty. The fuss about the Woodruff matter shows how self-serving the newsmedia is. They report more on themselves than they do on the sucesses of the military.

Former Democratic Chief Counsel: Ted Kennedy Disgraced Himself: "In my view (as a Democrat and former chief counsel to the House Judiciary Committee), Senator Edward M. Kennedy, D-Mass., has disgraced himself and our party by misusing his position on the Senate Judiciary Committee to achieve self-serving partisan ends"
With all due respect to the former chief counsel to the House Judiciary Committee, how could Senator Kennedy possibly disgrace himself. Senator Kennedy has a dog named "Splash." I suppose that is to remind him of Mary Jo Kopechne who took her last gasping breath submerged in Kennedy's car which had run off a bridge in Chappaquiddick. Where was Kennedy? He had swum to safety and was with counsellors trying to think up a story that would get him off the hook. Mary Jo's family was bought off by Kennedy money, the justice system corrupted by Kennedy family and money, but Ted Kennedy was finished as a possible presidential candidate. This is only one of the sordid incidents involving drunkenness, adultery and fornication, corruption and extreme liberal politices, generated no doubt from the guilt the whole family feels from receiving the inheritance of Hitler-loving Joseph Kennedy, who made his money in bootleg liquor during prohibition. Joseph was too much even for Franklyn Roosevelt, who dismissed Joseph from his post as ambassador to England because of his [Joseph's] pro-Nazi sympathies.

Do you doubt these things? Look them up. This man is the conscience of the Democratic party?
