I just clicked the CNN link.
I don't see this story.


Does Anyone have any type of capture of this story?

Apparently another FRAUDcast by CNN AP and others.

A poster in this thread said Hez' reports are usually trustworthy--- HAH!

Fair enough. Perhaps I should have said re-christianize.

Take in to account this summary of a speech by Pope Urban II about the first crusade:

"The noble race of Franks must come to the aid their fellow Christians in the East. The infidel Turks are advancing into the heart of Eastern Christendom; Christians are being oppressed and attacked; churches and holy places are being defiled. Jerusalem is groaning under the Saracen yoke. The Holy Sepulchre is in Moslem hands and has been turned into a mosque. Pilgrims are harassed and even prevented from access to the Holy Land.

"The West must march to the defense of the East. All should go, rich and poor alike. The Franks must stop their internal wars and squabbles. Let them go instead against the infidel and fight a righteous war.

"God himself will lead them, for they will be doing His work. There will be absolution and remission of sins for all who die in the service of Christ. Here they are poor and miserable sinners; there they will be rich and happy. Let none hesitate; they must march next summer. God wills it!

Does this sound at all familiar?

That's a joke, right? The U.N. couldn't find it's own thieving collective a@@ with both hands. Don't get down over some poll and always remember David and Goliath. Everybody loves an underdog, and also, it's not the U.N. anymore, it's the League of Nations Part Deux!!

The Israeli Jews have the will and the heart for this fight.
The real danger is that the leaders will get stuck on the spider web that so many politicians and diplomats are already glued to, and that spider web is made of fake outrage, and baldfaced lies, and false gods who call themselves holy men. They are nothing but pure evil. Like American movies? I can recommend two really good ones. The first is Exodus, which I was forced to watch as a child and am now thankful, and the other is The Usual Suspects, only because of one line:
"THE GREATEST TRICK THE DEVIL EVER PULLED WAS TO CONVINCE THE WORLD THAT HE DOESN'T EXIST". That right there is Islam.

Chin up, kiddo, you are not alone and there are so many here who pray for you and yours. We pray that those Israeli tanks and the young soldiers are the "end of the beginning". Take care and God bless!

That may be the only way to solve the problem. As long as they are Islamists, they will want to kill us.

Another FRAUDcaster story, it seems.

I'm glad that's the case, if so.

From ynetnews.com:

IDF denies warship was hit by Hizbullah

The Israel Defense Forces denied reports in Arab media that a Navy warship was hit by a Hizbullah rocket, the army says.

Hizbullah said it sank an Israel warship off the coast of Tyre in southern Lebanon. (Hanan Greenberg)

Hezbollah TV? Are they in Dish Network or Direct TV?.......

Nope. Their signals have been banned in the U.S., France, Spain and Australia.

After the US Department of State placed Al-Manar on the Terrorist Exclusion List on December 17, 2004, transmissions to North America via Intelsat's satellites were blocked, this had the effect of making Al-Manar unavailable in Canada as well.

All I am saying is that we must be prayerful/careful in this process. There are striking similarities between what the muslims are doing now and the crusades...

You should brush up on your history. Ignorance is never a good thing.

Tu quoque. And you might brush up on your manners while you're at it. I've forgotten more than most people will ever know of history, and I'd never so insinuate that any fellow guest in Mr. Robinson's good forum is ignorant. But you're just plain rude.

Hey, send that to Roto-Rooters and they's shoot it out onto the wires.....

Reuters EXCLUSIVE: "ISRAELI GUNBOAT UNDER HEZBOLLAH BOMBARDMENT"

Maybe send them a photo of the Bismarck or Yamato sinking and they's say "EXLUSIVE PHOTO: ISRAELI 'GUNBOAT' SINKING"

"Their main purpose was to "christianize" the muslim world"

Far from it - by any reasonable analysis, the "Crusades" were a defensive counter-action after the "Muslim world" had overrun much of the Christian Mediterranean world. The Crusades never aimed at more than trying to re-take a modest portion of what have been overrun by the Muslim hordes, mainly trying to save the Holy Lands and some of the coastal provinces in Asia Minor. Islam had conquered vast regions and populations, putting many people to the sword forcing millions into subjection and dhimmitude.

"What is it going to take to get the world to wake up and begin a new crusade to wipe this religion off of the earth?"

Ethnic cleansing is not the solution. Morally, Legally or practically it is wrong. The vast majority of Muslims are good people. I realize that out of 1.2 billion Muslims, that if only 10% are jihadists or their supporters that is still 120 million people, but mass murder is not the answer. The Muslim world need to cleanse itself of this problem. The West cannot do it all. We can kill terrorist until the sun supernovas, but unless the Muslim world gets their crap together the entire world has a problem.

I never thought the Soviet Union would collapse and Stalinist Communism only be left to reside in N.Korea and Cuba, but it happened. If the West is persistent and strong, we can win this war without nuking the Muslim world.

Hezbollah generally has done what it publicly says it did.

If this were true, then they would have sunk 3 ships... which they have not.

Well, uh, there was some dust on the picture and it was too dark. The sun was in my eyes . . . I stand by this picture as being an accurate depiction of an Israeli warship with smoke and perhaps a few buildings coming from it.

Hopefully it was the SS Oldsmobile with Ted Kennedy at the helm enjoying his Mediterranean cruise.
