Per request of Admin moderator. This is reposted. 2 Christian churches in Mosul bombed, 4 in Baghdad bombed?

Could this be the work of the TROP?

Could this be the work of the Zionists or the Klu Klux Klan?

Enquiring minds want to know.

Neo-conservative Zionists secretly in the pay of the Saudi monarchy via George Bush, for the purpose of increasing revenue to Halliburton!

Maybe it was the Republicans in order to erode Kerry's (negative) bounce.

How about some seriousness here? It was either a U.S. accident or a hate crime.

We are quickly approaching the day of clarity..
The "burka" will be removed, and the true face of this war will be seen..

Muslims are once again on their mission to destroy or enslave non-Muslims.

Only the ignorant will refuse to see the facts.

Semper Fi

The US may designate western Sudan fighting a 'genocide'; Europe has sent money for observers.

B| Staff writer of The Christian Science Monitor

excerpt: For many years, this was a low-level conflict between Arab cattle owners and black farmers over the little good land in a forbidding region near the Sahara desert. But in February 2003, black tribespeople took up arms against Sudan's government to protest years of economic marginalization. That's when the government apparently urged Arab militias to attack black tribes. Survivors have told of Sudanese planes strafing villages followed by Arabs on horseback raping and pillaging. Some 130,000 refugees have fled into neighboring Chad.

Meanwhile, one of the government's most powerful critics, a Muslim cleric named Hassan Turabi, apparently made common cause with one of the Darfur rebel groups. This sparked concern among Sudan's leaders - and may explain the government's harsh tactics.

Muslims Massacre Hundreds of Sudanese

By Gary Lane
Chief International Correspondent

July 23, 2004 News) - A lot of media attention has been given recently to the humanitarian crisis in Darfur, Sudan.

It is a tragedy caused by war between a radical Arab Muslim regime in Khartoum and moderate black Muslims in western Sudan.

But the media has provided little coverage to the recent atrocities Muslims have committed against Christians and Animists in South Sudan.

Kenneth Roth of Human Rights Watch, said, "They show the provision of military support to the Janjaweed, including the provision of arms..."

As Human Rights Watch unveiled documents proving Khartoum's military support of the Janjaweed militia in Darfur, another important document was released.

One that gained little media attention from the Persecution Project Foundation. It provides a partial list of recent massacre victims in the village of Akobo, the headquarters of the Presbyterian Church of Sudan.

More than 200 Sudanese, mostly Christians and Animists, were slaughtered in early May, by militias supported by the government of Sudan. Among the dead? Children as young as one and two years old.

And while the Khartoum regime is close to signing a final peace deal to end its war with southern Sudanese Christians, it is continuing its jihad against them, especially in the oil-rich region of the Upper Blue Nile.

A Shilluk man explained what happened when militiamen, accompanied by government troops, attacked his village in the middle of the night.

He said, "When they started shooting, we just ran into the river. We just jumped into the river and some of the kids did not know how to swim, and some of them just drowned."

Meanwhile in Washington, Secretary of State Colin Powell said the international community was completely dissatisfied with the security situation in Darfur. He said nothing about the recent massacre of Christians in the Upper Blue Nile.

Sudanese president Omar el-Bashir promised Powell last month he had take action to stop the Janjaweed militia from committing murders, rapes and other atrocities against the people of Darfur. Powell says Khartoum has not done enough. Possible global action may be necessary to help the more than 1 million refugees.

Some Christians in South Sudan say atrocities against them are continuing, despite numerous cease-fire agreements. They say broken promises on Darfur are more of the same, and only prove what they have known for 21 years: that the radical Islamic regime in Khartoum cannot be trusted. And they say if Washington continues to dance with devil, it is likely to eventually get burned.

The muslims are screaming holy war but our govt. refuses to acknowledge it. How dumb is that? Allowing muslims and their mosques in America is like allowing the Germans to set up military bases in America during World War II. And it doesn't help that law enforcement would be prosecuted for placing mosques under surveillance.

I'm all for religous freedom in America, but islam is not a legitimate religion. It is a psycho death cult and its members support terrorism, end of story.
