    Iran's president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad dismissed international criticism of his call for Israel's annihilation, saying, "They [Israelis] are cheeky humans and they think that the entire world should obey them. They destroy Palestinian families and expect nobody to object to them," Ahmadinejad said, asserting his comments "are the exact words of the Iranian people". It was the first time since early in the days of the Islamic Revolution that such a high-ranking Iranian official has openly called for the destruction of Israel. Ahmadinejad made his comments during Iran's annual hatefest called 'Jerusalem Day.' Iran's 'Jerusalem Day' is a carnival-like event during...

    Oct 27, 2005 Russia has quietly worked to forge a quasi-alliance of that to rival the US-led NATO, between current and future nuclear powers of Pakistan, China and Iran. This alignment is specifically geared toward confronting the US in a hotly contested market for geopolitical status in the middle east and to dictate economic trends concerning natural resources in the region. Decision by the IAEA to refer Iran to the UN Security Council has also put Russia in a difficult position between choosing its long-term economic ties with the EU and US or short-term ones with Iran. As the world...

      The Miracle of The Sun   October 13, 1917(1) Here are briefly the facts; starting from the day after the events, by a reporter who cannotpossibly be accused of partiality in this matter and for a good reason! We refer to Avelino deAlmeida, the chief editor of "O Seculo," the large "liberal" anticlerical and masonic daily ofLisbon. He writes, "From the road, where the carriages were crowded together and where hundreds of persons hadstayed for want of sufficient courage to advance across the muddy ground, we saw the hugecrowd turn towards the sun which appeared at its zenith,...

    IN THE two days since Lisa Petrachkova was born, Russia’s population has dropped by an estimated 2,000 people. By the time she is one, more than 200,000 Russians will have died of unnatural causes; almost seven times the estimated civilian deaths in Iraq since the war began. By her 50th birthday, Russia’s population could have halved, based on current trends. Little does she know it as she lies next to her mother, Masha, in a Moscow maternity ward, but Lisa is on the front line of a national fight for survival. By Russian standards, she is lucky to have made...

    Jun. 10 (Forum 18/CWNews.com) - In what seems the most serious proposal in recent years to tighten up Russia's 1997 religion law, parliament's religion committee has begun to consider four draft amendments, the Forum 18 news service reports. The proposed amendments would make it impossible for unregistered religious organizations to hold large meetings, and would allow only centralized religious organizations to invite foreign visits to participate in their work. "If we invite a priest to Moscow as the center of the diocese and he is to work in a completely different place, such as Kaliningrad, it will take a long...

    Fatima, Portugal _ A record number of Christian pilgrims walked to the shrine of Fatima yesterday to mark the anniversary of the alleged apparition of the Virgin Mary before three children in 1917. An estimated 30,000 people walked several days to the Fatima sanctuary, about 150km north of the capital Lisbon, from all over the country. Several thousand others drove there to attend the annual ceremony at the Fatima shrine. ``We think there are more pilgrims who walked to the sanctuary, which we consider to be a record,'' said Father Manuel Antunes.

    TWO POPES, TWO BOOKS -- AND TWO MAJOR INSIGHTS INTO FAMED THIRD FATIMA SECRET In his book God and the World, Pope Benedict XVI not only affirmed his belief in the famed third secret of Fatima but saw in it the ability of men to "change the vision" -- to alter prophesied events -- in a dramatic way.Referring to the secret -- which was granted to two seers in that Portuguese hamlet in 1917 and which involved an image of an angel set to torch the world (as well as a "bishop in white," who, it was prophesied, would be...

    Once again, protests have been proven effective. After receiving an avalanche of protest emails, petitions and calls eBay has changed its policy and will now refuse to sell consecrated Hosts and other sacred objects. In an email sent to protestors, Kaelee of eBay’s Community Watch Team writes: “we have concluded that sales of the Eucharist, and similar highly sacred items, are not appropriate on eBay. We have, therefore, broadened our policies and will remove those types of listings should they appear on the site in the future.” The controversy began in mid April, when someone seeking to capitalize on the...

But the country’s lawmakers also decided that for the law decree proposal to come into force, a referendum on the matter would have to be held.While voting went as planned for the majority centre-left Socialists (PS), internal squabbling within the ruling party saw at least forty MP’s call for a revision to the party’s law proposal.These ‘dissident’ MP’s, which make up a third of the party’s parliamentary seats, presented a declaration saying that while they were in...

    Most candid souls will admit that the world is in spiritual pain. Continual disregard of Fatima's warning will doom generations to spiritual bankruptcy. This is especially true in the disregard for the First Saturday devotions. The America Needs Fatima campaign is making a special effort to help Catholics remember. Our Blessed Mother has given us the means to heal and restore order, harmony and peace with a simple solution of prayer and penance, and following the Five First Saturday's specific instructions. The America Needs Fatima staff is promoting this devotion in a 425,000 prayer-card campaign. Five individual cards have been...

    A few days ago as we received notice that the Pope had died, there was a flurry of discussions about what he stood for and what he supported. One of the items that he was a huge proponent for was “Our Lady of Fatima” and the Prophecies of Fatima. I posted some links on the Blog so that some of my Protestant readers could get up to speed on what this stuff was all about. Many had either never even heard of Fatima and most had never read anything about it so it was a great opportunity to learn something....

    A POPE DESCRIBED AS 'FROM THE SUN' WAS BORN DURING ECLIPSE AND LEAVES WITH ONEHe was born during an eclipse (May 18, 1920) and there will be an eclipse, a rare type of partial eclipse, Friday (April 8) on the day of his burial. And so now eyes have turned more intently to an old prophecy attributed to the Irish monk St. Malachy O'Morgair -- who supposedly foresaw the entire succession of popes by using riddle-like nicknames, with the one fitting the 110th -- John Paul II -- being De Labore Solis, which means  "from the labor of the sun."Indeed,...

    If someone hung a picture of your mother amid images of prostitutes and pornography, would you be upset? Would you protest? I’m sure you would. In fact, the Blessed Mother is being insulted in this fashion at the Catholic University of Dayton, where an “art” exhibit in the Rike Center Gallery depicts “Mary amid images of prostitutes, pornography and firearms that has shocked some students and professors…” (Dayton Daily News, 03-07-05) Even worse – the University of Dayton is one of the nation's ten largest Catholic universities, founded in 1850 by the Society of Mary, whose particular mission is to...
