    Cop Killer Ismaaiyl Brinsley may have been responding to a fatwa.Ismaaiyl Brinsley murdered NYPD officers Wenjian Liu and Raphael Ramos in cold blood on last Saturday in Brooklyn.. City officials confirmed that Brinsley had attended a Mike Brown rally in New York City. He took video at the protest. Police Commissioner William Bratton said Ismaaiyl was carrying $100 bills in his pocket. But he had no job or home. Andrew G. Bostom, professor of medicine at Brown University, told Steve Malzberg that Ismaaiyl may have been responding to a fatwa to murder police officers. “People are reluctant to even acknowledge...

    DECEMBER 24, 2014 Christians On The Run From Iraq The Islamic State is attaining its key goal, and U.S. media find the story of “limited interest.” By Nina Shea For the first time in 1,400 years, there will be no Christmas celebrations in Nineveh province, home to Iraq’s largest remaining Christian community and largest non-Muslim minority, and a site of great biblical significance. This northern province, whose area is over three times larger than that of Lebanon, is now part of the Islamic State’s caliphate, and its Christians and churches are no longer tolerated. What has become of Nineveh’s Christians?...

    Religion News Service is reporting that: "Cardinal Walter Kasper, one of Pope Francis’ closest advisers, has sought to downplay the pontiff’s scathing critique of the Curia earlier this week. Kasper, who previously led the Vatican body responsible for promoting Christian unity, said the pope was asking the Curia, or Vatican administration, to examine their conscience in a bid to promote spiritual renewal. The German cardinal, joined by Argentine Cardinal Leonardo Sandri, said Francis was asking the Curia to set an example. 'The fundamental thing is he wants spiritual reform of the Curia,' Kasper told the Italian daily Corriere della Sera...

    Thursday, December 25, 2014 Every Christmas Now Comes With Muslim Terrorism Posted by Daniel Greenfield @ the Sultan Knish blog Muslim Terrorism has become as much of a Christmas tradition for Christians in the West, as it already was for Christians in the Muslim world, where Somali Muslim gunmen attacked a Christmas party at an African Union base. A Somali Muslim attempted to bring terrorism into the United States by bombing a Christmas tree lighting ceremony in Portland in 2010. Mohamed Osman Mohamud (twice the Mohammed for twice the mayhem) had a simple goal, "I want whoever is attending that...

    To Dad--who knew how to keep Christmas well Candle wicks, like memories, flicker faintly at times, and burn brightly at others. Dickens could have been writing about my father, William Christian Stoos, when he said of Scrooge that he knew how to keep Christmas well. Dad was the Spirit of Christmas in our household. Each year he anticipated the holiday with a childlike glee. Although a stoic man, and deeply spiritual, he became a child at Christmas time—his favorite time of the year. Whether it was the gaudy Christmas tree with its 2,000 lights that warmed our cozy house, the...

  • Hollywood’s God Is Distant, Powerless

    Bible students are ever hopeful that Hollywood moviemakers will produce compelling, dramatic, visually stimulating and factual films for some of the Old Testament’s best-known heroes and heroines. That is never going to happen! The extensively advertised and marketed 2014 movies—Noah and Exodus: Gods and Kings—prove this point. Many people were greatly disappointed by Darren Aronofsky’s film Noah. It will be ditto with Ridley Scott’s Exodus: Gods and Kings. When I saw Noah, I thought, Shame on you, Mr. Aronofsky. Seeing Exodus: God’s and Kings, I thought, Shame on me for staying until the end. Not Much Bible in Noah Aronofsky...

    Today in America we stand in a place few, if any, of us ever dreamed we would see in our lifetimes. There is no overstating the wicked nature of this terrible place. The United States of America has been overthrown by communist enemies within who have waged a decades-long, steady infiltration of every area of power and influence in our nation. I say “decades-long,” but we can look back and see that the cancer began at least a hundred years ago, and it really kicked into high gear in the 1960s. It has now metastasized, and I don’t know that...

Then Joseph her husband, being a just man, and not willing to make her a public example, was minded to put her away privily. But while he thought on these things, behold, the angel of the Lord appeared unto him in a dream, saying, Joseph, thou son of David, fear not to take unto thee Mary thy wife: for that which is conceived in her is...

This is the day for celebrating the greatest birth in the history of the world, the birth of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. The birth of Christ marks the watershed moment in all of human history. By a “watershed moment,” I mean a moment so significant that it marks a division between what went before and what comes after. And so it is with the birth of Christ. We even divide up time according to it: “B.C.,” “Before Christ,” and “A.D.,” “Anno Domini,” “In the...

Army Chaplain Joseph Lawhorn was disciplined for mentioning his faith and the Bible as part of a November suicide prevention training seminar with the 5th Ranger Training Battalion. “You provided a two-sided handout that listed Army resources on one side and a biblical approach to handling depression on the other side,” wrote Col.

    For Christmas was, is, and always will be, a clear cold, night. Some say that Christmas is too secular, that the glitter, music, gifts and family dinners are really not what the holy day is about. They hold that the Baby Jesus has been forgotten in the cacophony and confusion of commercial Christmas. They say that it is only about the birth of Christ. Everything else, they say, is a distraction or, even worse, sacrilege. Others say Christmas is not a holy day, but a day for family, friends, and presents—that Jesus was an historical figure, whose life should not...

    The left’s Christmas tradition is to minimize the holiday, because they have no understanding of Christmas or the Person being celebrated.  They even go so far as to claim Jesus never existed.  It’s easy to come to the conclusion that Jesus is not God when you start with the position that there is no God at all.  And I think God might want it that way. The deniers see a vengeful, capricious deity, whose rapacity for our affection and devotion causes him to become our ultimate stalker—watching every move we make, ready to pounce in judgment.  This god has no...

The resident Arabs refused to accept the land set aside for a “Palestinian” state. The British “mandate” of the area dated from the Versailles Treaty in 1919. Previously the Balfour Declaration was issued by the British government, favoring the establishment of a Jewish national home...

    Obama's confidential adviser on all matters Islamic, Mohamed Allah-dork, is disgusted with Obama's recent attack on North Korea's internet because the methods He used were contrary to true Islamic doctrine. Concerned that his silence might be viewed as agreement with Obama's methods, Allah-dork decided to divulge what really happened and how. Mohamed Allah-dork Great technological sophistication was needed to take down North Korea's internet. Therefore, experts who had created the ObamaScare website, together with experts from the Federal Communications Commission (FCC), managed the project. Together, they provided an elegant solution which, unlike the ObamaScare website, worked perfectly (if only briefly) on the second attempt. First, all of the glitches thus far identified in the ObamaScare...

As reported recently by the Harvard Crimson (Harvard’s daily student-run newspaper), since April 2014, Harvard University Dining Services (HUDS) stopped purchasing SodaStream machines (do-it-yourself soda and water machines which are owned and manufactured by an Israeli-based company). Since that time HUDS also agreed to remove SodaStream labels from existing water-filtering machines currently installed in the dining halls of many Harvard-Radcliffe residences, or Houses.

    Blaming Israel for evil, rather than her many Islamic neighbors and enemies, is -- despite the views of Obama and His colleagues -- contrary to American values. Doing so is based on Jew hatred, envy of success, and the multicultural absurdity that no culture or religion is better or worse than any other. As I argued most recently here and here, Israel is fighting for her survival against regimes that want her to cease to exist because she is Jewish, not Islamic, and her government is free and democratic, not dictatorial. She is, therefore, an outsider in the Middle East. This video identifies many of the reasons why Israel is viewed harshly by other Western civilizations while Islamic nations, which...

And one of the most popular of these songs is a song called, “Mary, Did You Know?” You’ve probably heard it, I’m guessing. The idea of the song is that someone is asking Mary, the mother of our Lord, if she knew what...

    The bogeyman in the Lindt Chocolate café won't go away because Australia's Prime Minister wants to put the term "Islamic State" out of sight and out of mind. The joint press conference given by Australian Prime Minister Tony Abbott on 16 December after the siege at the Lindt Chocolate café in Martin Place had finally ended - was particularly noteworthy for certain viewpoints expressed by Mr Abbott during that conference. The Prime Minister - flanked by NSW Premier Mike Baird, Commissioner Colvin of the Federal Australian Police and Deputy Commissioner Burn of the New South Wales Police—made the following statement:...

    As long as Western leaders take to mics warning the unwashed masses never to refer to terrorism as terrorism, it’s going to be happy hunting for worldwide terrorists When terrorists look in the rear view mirror after their latest slaughterhouse jihad in any land, they clearly see the cowardice of all western leaders and plenty of opportunities in what millennials would call ‘wiggle room’. Aware right down to their AK-47 tingling trigger fingers, the terrorists of today and tomorrow know that they will never be I’D’d as ‘terrorists’ because the leaders of the countries they strike will never allow the...

    Writing for the Acton Institute, Joe Carter explains that, "The U.S. began imposing sanctions against Cuba after Fidel Castro seized power in 1959, nationalized the economy, and stole more than $1 billion in American assets on the island. Diplomatic relations between the United States and Cuba broke off in 1961 as tensions between the two nations increased after Cuba signed a trade agreement with the Soviet Union. Even though the Cold War ended, not much has changed in the relationship between Cuba and the U.S." Why is it that even though Cuba hasn't changed at all and is as repressive...
  • If you don’t support Israel, what else do you not believe?

    Charting Course ^ | 7/5/14 | Steve Berman
    Politically, culturally, and theologically, American Christians should support Israel, as a Jewish state, as a free nation, and as the Holy Land set aside for God’s purposes.  Believing otherwise is counter to scripture, Christian faith, and American interests. Many Christians believe that since the Temple was destroyed in 70 A.D. and Israel was scattered, that God had no plans for Israel, and instead has passed his blessings to the Church.  Nothing could be further from God’s truth, and no belief could be more damaging and pernicious to God’s purpose in bringing redemption to the world. The thought that somehow...

    “The Great Christmas Gift Exchange” (Isaiah 61:1-4, 10-11) There is a game that is played at this time of year at Christmas parties all across the land. The game goes by several names, but I think most often it is called “Rob Your Neighbor,” and I’m sure many of you have played it. The rules may vary from place to place, but generally I think it goes something like this. Each person brings a gift that could go to anyone in the group, depending on how the game turns out. The gift is wrapped in a package, so you can’t...

    Six official clay seals found by an archaeological team at a small site in Israel offer evidence that supports the existence of biblical kings David and Solomon. Many modern scholars dismiss David and Solomon as mythological figures and believe no kingdom could have existed in the region at the time the Bible recounted their activities. The new finds provide evidence that some type of government activity was conducted there in that period.A Mississippi State University team found this bulla, or ancient clay seal, on a dig site in southern Israel last summer. It offers evidence of government activity in the...

    A couple of months ago, the story of a couple at the brink of separation was published on this column and I asked readers the question above. Bisola and Akinola, blessed with three children, had been married for 17 years, living with each otherÂ’s excesses as most couples do. Then one day, Bisola stumbled on three travel documents, all bearing AkinolaÂ’s names. They belonged to a strange woman, a child and Akinola. A confrontation resulted in a heated argument between them and Akinola walked out of their home. His wife was free to take whatever decision she thought best for...
