    The southern Utah site of a wagon train massacre was dedicated Sunday as a national historic landmark 154 years to the day after the tragedy occurred. About 350 people watched as Zion National Park Superintendent Jock Whitworth presented plaques to mark the Mountain Meadows Massacre Historic Site 30 miles north of St. George. The 760-acre site is where 120 members of an Arkansas wagon train were shot and killed by a Mormon militia on Sept. 11, 1857. The Baker-Fancher wagon train stopped in the meadows on its way to California when it was attacked. Government officials, church leaders and descendants...

    Silence is an enemy and it’s very, very tempting," Nader Hasan said. "I wanted silence and I could go back and turn my back on what my family member did and go on with my life and not speak." Instead, he said, he chose to create the charity. "It was a huge part for me personally. Others want to portray the majority Muslim voice," Nader Hasan said. "But I never thought I’d be advocating for Muslim America. That’s not me."
  • Black Africans executed in cold-blood by rebels in Libya

    08/27/2011 11:38:16 AM PDT · by Borough Park · 38 replies
    The fighting in Libya is taking a new twist as rebels engage in despicable atrocities with reports of summary executions as they hunt for ‘mercenaries’ who they alleged aided and supported Gaddafi’s forces. The ‘mercenaries’, mostly from sub-saharan Africa, were said to be violently massacred in revenge for their role in the ongoing conflict. It seems the TRC has been unable to prevent such acts of heinous crimes despite appeals from the UN and the international community to the rebels not to carry out reve nge killings. At this point, the TRC seems more anxious to take power in Libya...

    King Charles IX of France, under the sway of his mother, Catherine de Medici, orders the assassination of Huguenot Protestant leaders in Paris, setting off an orgy of killing that results in the massacre of tens of thousands of Huguenots all across France. Two days earlier, Catherine had ordered the murder of Admiral Gaspard de Coligny, a Huguenot leader whom she felt was leading her son into war with Spain. However, Coligny was only wounded, and Charles promised to investigate the assassination in order to placate the angry Huguenots. Catherine then convinced the young king that the Huguenots were on...

    Background: In Breivik's manifesto he conceives a decades-long war between "cultural conservatives" with "Justiciar Knights" as their champions, and the evil alliance of European Islamists and multiculturalists. In the midst of the terrorist-training-manual portion of his manifesto (which generally makes its Al-Qaeda counterpart look amateurish), he contemplates acquiring WMDs from Middle Eastern Islamists with the rationale that they might desire the deportation of European Muslims as a means to enhance their own power. This scheme is humdrum compared to what comes next: "Assuming we will ever seek common ground, which is unlikely at best, the problem will be the authentication...

    ROGERS, Ark. -- For more than 150 years, an important piece of Arkansas and American history has been relegated to obscurity. In early 1857, a wagon train left Northwest Arkansas and headed west, bound for California. The Francher-Baker train was made up of 14 large Arkansas families, about 800 cattle and around 30 wagons. "They were en route to California for a better life and little did they know that Brigham Young had declared war on the United States two weeks before they entered the Salt Lake Valley," said Phil Bolinger, with the Mountain Meadows Monument Foundation.

    Security forces in Syria have shot dead at least nine people at funerals for anti-government protesters killed on Friday, reports say. They opened fire on mourners gathering in parts of the capital Damascus and near the flash-point southern town of Deraa, witnesses said. At least 72 people reportedly died on Friday, the bloodiest day in some five weeks of unrest. Two MPs from Deraa have resigned in protest at the violence. Friday's bloodshed, which came a day after President Bashar al-Assad scrapped decades of emergency rule, drew strong international condemnation. At least 280 people are now believed to have been...

The attackers seem to have been largely soldiers descended from Burkina Faso immigrant Muslim families loyal to Ouattara. Late yesterday the Roman Catholic charity Caritas said more than 1000 people were massacred in Duekoue. A Caritas spokesman said Caritas workers visited the town and reported seeing a neighbourhood filled with bodies of people who had been shot and...

He attacked Tasso da Silveira school, where some 400 students ages 9-14 were in classes. Police Col. Djalma Beltrami said the killer used two handguns...

Further add the heart-rending death of a nine-year-old girl who was born on September 11th, 2001. Four others died along with those two. Eleven others were wounded along with Rep. Giffords. The young man who killed and wounded them is all-but certainly a schizophrenic. He's of the age when male schizophrenics first undergo a break from reality.

    The Emery County Historical Society recently presented the Mysteries of the Mountain Meadows Massacre at the Museum of the San Rafael. Dottie Grimes, the president of the Emery County Historical Society opened the meeting with a Pledge of Allegiance and a prayer. Followed by Evelyn Huntsman singing the old song "Freckles Gets The Blame", this music was found in the Emery County Archives. Dottie Grimes then introduced Edward Geary from Huntington who has done extensive research about the Mountain Meadows Massacre. Geary wrote the book A History of Emery County in 1996. Geary said, "Evelyn Huntsman's song is the cheerful...

    At the end of November something historically quite significant happened in Russia. The State Duma passed a statement conceding Soviet responsibility for the Katyn Woods massacre, one of the 20th century’s worst war crimes. The roots of this atrocity date to September 1939, when the Nazis and Bolsheviks jointly invaded, annihilated, and partitioned Poland. The Soviets seized thousands of Polish military officers as prisoners. Their fate was sealed on March 5, 1940 when Stalin signed their death warrant, condemning 21,857 of them to “the supreme penalty: shooting.” This we now know conclusively through the surviving NVKD document. The officers were...

    Sunday, on the eve of All Saints' Day, Nov. 1, 2010, the faithful gathered at the Assyrian Catholic Church of Our Lady of Salvation in Baghdad. As Father Wassim Sabih finished the mass, eight al-Qaida stormed in, began shooting and forced him to the floor. As the priest pleaded that his parishioners be spared, they executed him and began their mission of mass murder. When security forces broke in, the killers threw grenades to finish off the surviving Christians and detonated explosive-laden vests to kill the police. The toll was 46 parishioners and two priests killed, 78 others wounded, many...

    On the morning of Sept. 11, a small group of dedicated men launched a surprise attack that resulted in the vicious slaughter of men, women and children. The assailants were forced to act, they believed, because their religious community was under siege by the United States government. They perpetrated their murders with the blessing of their leaders and in the name of God, although the religion’s highest authorities would immediately disavow themselves of any connection with the massacre. In its wake, most Americans claimed the faith itself was inherently violent and supported military action against the associates of those who...
