Muslims Embracing Christianity in Kurdistan, Northern Iraq

I found this video about a Middle East “biblical revolution” on  Tundra Tabloids site. This group of “new believers” lives in the predominately Kurdish area of Iraq~Iraqi Kurdistan
In the late 1970s, the army of Saddam Hussein carried out a genocidal campaign against Iraq’s Kurds, killing hundreds of thousands and displacing millions. Iraqi forces finally left Kurdistan in October 1991, leaving the region somewhat independent, however,  Iraqi Kurdistan continues to view itself as an integral part of a united Iraq but one in which it administers its own affairs.
In an area where Islam is the dominant religion, these people may face further persecution in the future for their new found faith. Please! Keep them in your prayers!

Glenn Beck on Israel, the Dome of the Rock & Faith

After visiting Israel Glenn has lots to say. There is an endgame afoot for man’s freedom and the Western way of life and the end will begin in Israel. Why is Glenn focusing on the Middle East and Israel? Israel is the beginning of what could be the end of man’s freedom…we must learn from history.

He is going to cause a lot of heads to explode with this one. Be sure to watch and take notes…

The Secret Files of the Inquisition~A 4-Part Series

The Inquisition was used to enforce Catholic Orthodoxy around the world for hundreds of years. The meticulously kept records of the Inquisitors were locked away for centuries. Finally in 1998 the Vatican opened the archive of the Holy Office of the Inquisition on a limited basis.

Based on these previously unreleased secret documents, The Secret Files of the Inquisition reveals the true story of the Catholic Church’s  ruthless, attempts to remain the world’s only religion.  After watching the following series one has to wonder what was Not released!

This four part series  is a description of a time in history when fanaticism brought horrors upon all people and dragged the world into a dark age that would remain for centuries. One sees how those in power, when that power is threatened, move to eliminate any who disagree with their opinions.
The Secret Files of the Inquisition~Episode 1~Root Out Heretics
Although the Church of Rome proclaimed itself the only true religion, heresy took hold, causing the pope to declare holy war, even against other Christian followers. Inquisitors were sent to exterminate the heretics by hunting down, then condemning them to burn at the stake. In 1308 the entire village of Montaillou was taken prisoner by the Inquisition. No one was safe.
Jacques Fournier who conducted the final inquisition, eventually became a Cardinal and seven years after that he became Pope Benedict XII. It is interesting to note that Joseph Ratzinger, the current Pope Benedict XVI, in November 1981, became Prefect of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, previously known as the Supreme Sacred Congregation of the Roman and Universal Inquisition (from which come the names Roman Inquisition or Holy Inquisition).

Secret Files of the Inquisition: Episode 2~Tears of Spain

In Iberia (not yet known as Spain) Christians, Muslims and Jews lived in tolerance for centuries until 1468. A young King (Ferdinand) and Queen (Isabella) proclaimed themselves Catholic Monarchs and instituted their own Inquisition. Thousands perished in a ritual called the act of faith. When the head inquisitor was assassinated In Zaragossa a wave of reprisals began. Perhaps those who suffered the most were the Conversos, Jews who had been forced to convert to Christianity. They were accused of secretly sabotaging the Christian faith but the truth was that many had became jealous of their success and chose to denounce them,  which resulted in their torture, death or expulsion. And of course the confiscation of all of their earthly goods which were shared between the church and state. Because Ferdinand and Isabella, did not want to give any power to Rome their personal “Spanish Empire” Inquisition took hold and resulted in a darkness that would grip the land and last for centuries.

Secret Files of the Inquisition: Episode 3~The War of Ideas

Venice was home to many new ideas, including the dawn of medicine. New ideas, however , were considered to be against the church–satanic. In 1522 the decadence of a Medici Pope in Rome caused a devout priest named Martin Luther to take action. In the wake of this Protestant Reformation, a fanatical monk decided to exterminate all heresy. Impressed by the power of the Spanish Inquisition he adopted the same tactics. His path to power resulted in the Roman Inquisition. In 1559 Pope Paul IV created his Index Librorum Prohibitorum (List of Prohibited Books). Powerful leaders of the Catholic Church were soon arrested and imprisoned, accused of reading books banned by the Church. Free-thinking students, including those who had an interest in science and medicine were silenced. Jews were particularly targeted–all of their Holy Books and Commentaries were burned, except the Tanach, which was known as the “Old Testament”. Darkness descended on all the centers of learning. The Roman Inquisition left a legacy that lasted into the twentieth century. Indeed, their list of “Prohibited Books” was not formally abolished until 1966!

Secret Files of the Inquisition: Episode 4~The End Of Inquisition
In Bologna, Italian Jews were confined to ghettos, forbidden to associate with Christians, own property, attend University or travel freely–all these laws were enforced by the Inquisition. Napoleon wanted to spread the ideas of the Enlightenment, and tore down the walls of the ghettos giving the Jews freedom. He conquered Italy, abolishing the Inquisition and ordered its files sent to Paris. When a Jewish boy was kidnapped on 24 June 1858, his devoted father would spend the next twelve years fighting to get his son back. The secret files of the Inquisition had been locked away for centuries, but one Spanish priest devotes his life to exposing the brutal records. Spain’s greatest painter,  Francisco de Goya, was called before the Inquisition for painting a nude woman. When he made a painting depicting the horror of the Inquisition Trials he had to flee for his life.

In 1908 the Holy Office of the Inquisition was changed to the Congregation for the Doctrine of Faith.

Muslims Slaughter 1,000 Christians in Ivory Coast

This story caught my attention on Bare Naked Islam–there are more links at their site. Although the main stream media is not really discussing it, Ivory Coast is apparently divided between the existing president, Laurent Gbagbo (Catholic) and Alassane Quattara (Muslim). Apparently Quattara has now gained control and has arrested Gbagbo.
The picture below is from the same site. I urge you to go to their link HERE and read it carefully. On Monday 11 April 2011 it was reported that at least 1,000 Christians were slaughtered in the past week at the Salesian Saint Teresa of the Child Jesus mission in Duekoue, Ivory Coast by Muslim troops loyal to Alassane Ouattara. Reporting from state-run media has been slow, and it seems that a massacre did not stop the new world order of President Obama, the European Union and United Nations from supporting Alassane Quattara. 
The video following this picture is from the massacre. Be Warned! From 1:15 the film is very graphic. The entire film appears to be from a cell phone–it is loud, frantic and frightening. View at your own discretion…

While I have not been following this story in detail, I have read much about the fighting being (yet again) between Muslims and another faith–in this case Christian.  The main stream media is not making a fuss–but the internet is screaming with outrage. Do a Google Search for Salesian Saint Teresa Duekoue and see for yourself–a quick search showed 30,500 results.
Here in the middle-east, every country Except Israel is being cleansed of all but the faith of Islam. Yet, whether it is the attacks on the Coptic Christians in Egypt or the slaughter of a Jewish family in their beds, it is low key reporting at best. The indignation and outrage are only heard when Israel approves “planning” of kindergartens and apartments in Jerusalem.
I strongly urge you to learn more. Follow the links above. Read carefully–ask questions.  In the face of ethnic cleansing of Christians and Jews, why is the UN talking about enforcing a No Fly Zone over Gaza to prevent Israel from defending it’s citizens? Why do they want to open the borders for Hamas so they can  re-arm? Why do they want to force Israel to uproot more than 500,000 (Five Hundred Thousand) Israelis and give the land to the PA and Hamas for their “new” state (without any negotiations) to the very people who have sworn to destroy Israel? By the way the PA is asking for billions of dollars to be donated to build their “new state” while not a penny is offered to the potentially 500,000 displaced Jews. Why is the world backing terrorists? If this comes to pass, the slaughter you see in the below film will be nothing compared to what the Arabs surrounding Israel will try to do if they are given leave to displace Jews from their homes.  Of course Israel will fight back–then what? Will the UN bomb Israel? What about Iran and their nukes? And one more question…if they did kill all the Jews–who will they go after next?

1,000 Christians Slaughtered by Muslims in Ivory Coast

Homosexual Brainwashing in Elementary Schools

Today there are many things happening in our world that we are told to accept–even though we may not agree with them. What people do in private is one thing. What is being brought  into public schools and taught to minors is an entirely different matter. 
The questions must be asked: Why is is necessary to force elementary school children to learn about homosexuality? Why is is necessary to force minors to accept homosexuality? 
Perhaps this is an over reaction on my part–but I feel strongly that every parent should, at the very least, be fully informed and comfortable with the education system. Bible believing people who wish to follow their faith are not given an option in this matter. 
I strongly urge you to watch both films and the news clip from California. Look at the faces of the children. Listen to what these “educators” think is a “healthy education”. Listen to what these children are being taught. At 3:45 of the first clip, listen to what the young boy says about the need to be open-minded in order to “try it”. This is fine if you are talking vegetables but these people are teaching homosexuality. Ask why children are not being taught the basics that they will need in life, such as reading, writing, maths, sciences–because it has been proven that there is a growing deficiency in these areas.

If this is what you want your children learning then it is happening already. If it is not what you want your children being taught in public school it is time for parents “voters” to take an interest…

Sharia in the West~When Will Americans Speak Out?

As this report indicates, there is a definite imbalance in the western world. We bend over backwards to accommodate anything that comes from the Muslim world–no matter how disgusting. Cabbies that refuse to drive people from the airport who have alcohol with them,–not to mention blind people with guide dogs. Schools creating special washrooms for Muslims, special food, special rules, special holidays and on and on. The demands are never ending. And guess what? The minute some idiot request is denied–Law Suits, threats and  many times loss of business or income. Lives of those who have built the free countries are being destroyed. Meanwhile these same organizations forbid any reference to Christmas, or any Non-Muslim based holiday or event. Excuse me–but something is very wrong. Please watch. Then educate yourself about Sharia Law, Islam, Jihad, and their desire for a world Caliphate.

Sweden Removes 9-Year Old From Parents Home~Guess Why?

This is an interesting item. The issue has been taken up by the ADF~Alliance Defence Fund who started the Blackstone Legal Fellowship. This story is of a young boy who was taken from his parents by force when he was only seven years old.  He is now nine and the parents are rarely allowed to see him–at one point the father was jailed for taking the child home from a supervised visitation. There is much more…
You may ask why? Apparently it is because his parents are Christians and chose to home school their son. Please watch the video…your comments would be most welcome…

Ban the Burka

The controversy over the burka, worn by muslim women, is reaching a feverish peak. In his own hard-hitting style, Pat Condell weighed in on the subject and his comments remain  pertinent today. You may not agree with his politics, but do think about the points he makes about the threat to the rights and freedom of all women.
