1. Some highly influential Americans begin to question Obama’s mental health
Anjem Choudary, one of the most outspoken and provocative Islamists in Britain today, has been remanded in custody, charged with the terrorism offense of encouraging people to join the Islamic State.
The charge is related to Choudary sending messages to his nearly 33,000 followers on Twitter, allegedly encouraging them to join the Islamic State — the radical Sunni Islamist group that has taken control over large parts of Syria and Iraq, and has threatened to attack targets in Europe and North America.
The effort to prosecute Choudary — well known for his relentless efforts to implement Islamic Sharia law in the UK — indicates that the British government intends to follow through on its recent pledge to crack down on radical Islam in the country.
DUBAI (Reuters) – Iran’s foreign minister said on Saturday that accusations about activity at its Parchin military site were “lies” spread by opponents of its landmark nuclear deal with world powers clinched last month.
A U.S. think-tank on Friday questioned Tehran’s explanation that activity at its Parchin military site visible in satellite imagery was related to road work, and suggested it was a clean-up operation before IAEA inspectors arrive at the site.

12 indicted for rebellion at asylum centers

He has repeatedly been turned down for British citizenship due to his ‘extremist’ views but now the British government is set to allow a radical Muslim preacher to stay in the UK.
The imam, who is known only in legal documents as FM, has long been considered connected to the deceased Al Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden.
Born in Yemen, the 50-year-old imam regularly preaches at a well known mosque in the north of England. He cannot be named as his identity is protected by the Special Immigration Appeals Commission (SIAC).
British jihadis plan to blow up the Queen next weekend at an event to mark the anniversary of the end of the Second World War.
The Mail on Sunday can reveal that police and MI5 are involved in a frantic race against time to thwart the assassination plot being orchestrated from Syria by Islamic State commanders.
The extremists aim to strike on Saturday by exploding a deadly pressure cooker bomb during events in Central London to mark the 70th anniversary of VJ Day – Victory in Japan.
Such an attack, if successful, would cause high casualties and represent the realisation of long-held fears of a terror ‘spectacular’ by home-based Muslim extremists.
Islamic State terrorists have made a series of twisted boasts about launching terror attacks on UK soil.
Last month, Abdullah Elmir – dubbed the ‘Ginger Jihadi’ because of his long red hair – bragged to an undercover Mail on Sunday reporter that IS would not stop their murderous campaign until its flag was flying over Buckingham Palace.
It followed the online circulation of a series of terror manuals providing step-by-step instructions on how to launch ‘lone wolf’ attacks in the UK.
Thank you Richard, M., Nicolai Sennels, Wrath of Khan, Oz-Rita, Buck, Maria J.,Dumbstruck, and all who sent in materials. Much more to come. Its early and muslims work many shift to achieve their ends.
Dan F., A man who operates an Email list on matters pertaining to Obama and Israel and especially on the two together, sent an Email with this bible verse prophesy. Zechariah 12:3
“On that day, I will make Jerusalem a burdensome rock for all the nations, and they will become lacerated, and all the nations will gather against it.”
Whatever else it may be, its certain not uninteresting. There are lots and lots of translations but Dan sent that one, and below is a comparable one as well:
It will come about at that time that I will make Jerusalem a heavy weight; so everyone who burdens themselves with it will be crushed, even though all of the nations of the earth gather themselves against it.
It certainly does seem as if the nations of the world are all concerned about the control and fate of one city, Jerusalem, more than any other city, even when the stated reasons for that concern would more accurately and even more intensely be better applied to any number of other cities.
Which brings me to another thought.
A game I used to play with people with whom I would discuss Islam and its values went more or less like this. (Please note this rhetorical device works as well with atheists as it does with believers)
Vlad: You know, it occurs to me that Mohamed was the anti-Christ
Leftist apologist for islam: Vlad I can’t believe I am hearing this. You sen a normal fellow, how can you buy into these childish faery stories?
Vlad: Let’s say there is no supernatural and Jesus and Mohamed only exist as legends like Superman and Daffy Duck then, ok?
LAFI (Satisfied) Yes OK…
Vlad: According to legend, how many slaves did Jesus have? How many for Mohamed?
(Wait for answer and provide one if LAFI doesn’t know)
According to legend, how many people did Jesus kill and how many for Mohamed?
According to the mythology, how many groups of people did Jesus preach that should be exterminated from the face of the Earth for not recognizing his religion and divinity?
This game doesn’t usually go long till the other person concedes the point. But one can, should one wish to be unkind, carry this point on for a very long time depending on how much you know about Mohamed, his life and his actions and words.
A related thought struck the other day when watching another of the countless videos on the matter of the islamic jihad for global manifest destiny.
Watching a man with the bruised skull and forehead called in Arabic, a ‘zebiba’, came the realization that it is a kind of ‘anti-stigmata’.
Even if we reduce this phenomenon to legend it still works.
Stigmata is a kind of affliction that god gives the most devout, the most selfless, the most pious and the most devoted to the works and words of Jesus and God as understood by the Catholic church. It is a miraculous occurrence where the stigmatic bleeds from the same spots as were the wounds of Jesus on the cross. It is a powerful symbol of the selflessness and devotion to the cessation of human suffering in this life and beyond given by the supernatural itself, and with supernatural aspects in that the stigmatic bleeds more than is possible without the stigmatic actually dying from loss of blood etc. Also that the wounds are supernaturally administered. One can be certain that there are readers of this site far more familiar with Stigmata, as legend or as believers than I, and will augment and/or straighten me out on details. I am always grateful for either in the pursuit of truth.
Now the muslim head bruise.
The Zebiba is a dark ugly stain on the forehead that a muslim gives himself in order to be conspicuous to others as someone who prays a lot and aggressively. It is achieved by banging one’s head deliberately on the forehead onto the ground, with the intention being that people will know you did so while praying, (whether you got the bruise that way or not, there is no way to tell short of a CSI)
The Zebiba, much like islamic street prayers, in that they are more intended to be an ostentatious sign of devout individuals rather than actually being about devotion by the individual.
The Zebiba is a deliberate mark one gives oneself to demonstrate aggressiveness in prayer and zealousness to the precepts of Islam, which will always mean their devotion to inflicting of suffering on others in order to force islam as the sole religion on Earth. It is a conspicuous self applied, mark of ‘devotion’. Its like printing a fake receipt for a large donation to a charity and not actually giving them money and then wearing that receipt on the front of your hat.
In pretty much every way, the Zebiba is the anti-stigmata.
Whether or not Stigmata is a real phenomenon, the zebiba is.
Eeyore for Vlad.
Post post script:
Gates of Vienna had these thoughts to add to this idea:
And when you pray, do not be like the hypocrites, for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and on the street corners to be seen by others. Truly I tell you, they have received their reward in full. But when you pray, go into your room, close the door and pray to your Father, who is unseen. Then your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you.
Another stellar example of how Islam and Christianity/Judaism differ on critical points of belief and behaviour. With islam, its all about the outside.
Baron Bodissey adds:
When Jesus had finished speaking, a Pharisee invited him to eat with him; so he went in and reclined at the table. But the Pharisee was surprised when he noticed that Jesus did not first wash before the meal.
Then the Lord said to him, “Now then, you Pharisees clean the outside of the cup and dish, but inside you are full of greed and wickedness. You foolish people! Did not the one who made the outside make the inside also?
