It appears as if President Obama does not really care about womens’ rights, freedom, Liberty, the 1st or 2nd (or any) Amendments, so Iranian dissidents have turned their eyes toward an unexpected neighbor. Israel. Here is an excerpt:

Iranian Dissident: Dear Israeli Brothers and Sisters – Help Us!
by Nissan Ratzlav-Katz

“Dear Israeli Brothers and Sisters,” writes Iranian dissident Arash Irandoost, “Iran needs your help more than ever now. And we will be eternally grateful. Please help opposition television and radio stations which are blocked and being jammed by the Islamic Republic (Nokia and Siemens) resume broadcast to Iran. There is a total media blackout and Iranians inside Iran for the most part are not aware of their brave brothers and sisters fighting and losing their lives daily. And the unjust treatment and brutal massacre of the brave Iranians in the hands of the mullah’s paid terrorist Hamas and Hizbullah gangs are not seen by the majority of the Iranians. Please help in any way you can to allow these stations resume broadcasting to Iran.

“And, please remember that we will remember, as you have remembered Cyrus the Great’s treatment of you in your time of need,” Irandoost concludes, signing his blogged call for help “Your Iranian Brothers and Sisters!” [Please read the whole article at Israel News.]

What is happening is atrocious, and the world remains silent. Is this how Hitler rose to power? I thought we swore, “Never again!”? Shall we sit here, comfortably, getting ready to celebrate the 4th of July? What does the 4th of July really mean to you if you can sit by and say nothing?

These are our brothers and sisters. Especially if you are a Christian. What can we do, you ask yourself or me? We can burn the phone lines down calling President Obama (1-202-456-1111) and let him know what you think of his silence! You can call your representatives (1-202-224-3121 or 225-3121, they both work) and encourage them to speak out for the dissidents in Iran. We can also encourage them to put the money back into the fund set up by the Republicans and some Democrats for the Iranian dissidents. We can help them with news through TV stations that the mullahs won’t have the time to block, at least not all of them! We can also use the radio. Whatever ideas you have, share them.

Where are all the Muslims who rallied when you thought it possible that any type of book could be flushed down a toilet let alone a Koran? WHERE IS YOUR VOICE? Do you not see the horror? Or do you approve of it? How about it CAIR? Yes, I guess we know where you stand.

Let me tell you something, though. There were people protesting all across this nation. I did notice you. There were probably more of you than any TV station is about to admit, which leads me to question whether or not we truly do have a free press or just a lazy one? From New York City to California. From sea to shining sea. Yes, injustice was proclaimed by the PEOPLE, not by these so-called groups that claim to represent you. Please remember this the next time they start squaking. It’s probably for their masters. Do you really want to please those dictators? I didn’t think so.

Everyone stay safe, keep praying, keep protesting, and come to my Tea Party on the 4th of July at Bixby Park, 130 Cherry Ave, Long Beach, California. We shall be having a moment of silence, and I will be wearing a green t-shirts. What is right is right, and it doesn’t matter that it’s not happening here. The truth is, it most certainly could. We must all be grateful. Have a nice day.

May you walk with the LORD always, and when you cannot take another step, may He carry you the rest of the way until you can walk along side Him again.

Russia Threatens War Against Georgia

Breaking News

4:52pm UK, Friday August 08, 2008

[Editor's Note: This is a Sky News story.] 

Russian tanks have rolled into Georgian territory as fears grow that all-out war will erupt over the breakaway province of South Ossetia.

Georgian troops fire rocket missiles at separatists in South Ossetia.

Georgian troops fire rocket missiles at separatists in South Ossetia.

The Georgian Interior Ministry said Russian forces were in control of part of the South Ossetian capital, Tskhinvali, while Georgia claims it has shot down five Russian warplanes.

The UN Security Council is due to discuss the crisis later.

US President George Bush and his Russian counterpart, Vladimir Putin, discussed the issue in Beijing, where they are at the Olympic opening ceremony.

The US State Department called for calm and is sending an envoy to South Ossetia to join international mediation efforts.

Georgia has appealed to international leaders to stop Russian intervention in what began as a conflict between the former Soviet state and South Ossetian separatists.

Russia reported earlier that Georgian artillery shells killed more than 10 Russian peacekeepers, while Georgia accused Russian jets of injuring seven people in a bombing raid.

A United Nations call for an immediate ceasefire between all sides fell on deaf ears.

The UN had earlier failed to reach an agreement on a Russia-drafted statement that would have called on Georgia and separatists region to halt all bloodshed.

South Ossetia and a second rebel Georgian region, Abkhazia – both of which unilaterally broke away from Georgia at the beginning of the 1990s – enjoy Russian political and financial backing.

Speaking from Moscow, Sunday Times correspondent Mark Franchetti said Russia claims it now has no choice but to protect its peacekeepers and Russian citizens in the Georgian province.

Putin: We Will Respond

[Please follow either the link at the beginning or the link at the bottom which says, 'Sky.com News' to view video.] 

He said tensions between the Georgians and the Russian-backed South Ossetians had been rising for months.

The presidency of Mikheil Saakashvili – who is viewed in Russia as a stooge of the West – has been a major bone of contention.

“(The Russians) oppose his plans for Georgia to join Nato because they feel the Americans and Nato are encircling Russia,” Mr Franchetti said.

If the Russians become fully involved, we could see the formation of a material frontier in South Ossetia in the clash between East and West.

Read Sky’s Alex Rossi’s Q&A on the conflict

Prior to Russia’s official intervention, witnesses described heavy fighting in Tskhinvali, with the night sky lit blue and red by explosions and Georgian forces appeared to be firing Katyusha rockets.

A spokesman for the separatists said in Moscow that the offensive had caused “deaths and many wounded”.

Skirmishes since last weekend have deepened fears of full-blown conflict in the Caucasus, which is emerging as a vital energy transit route and where Russia and the West are vying for influence.

I have found this article, written by Navy Lt. Neil Myers Special to American Forces Press Service, at DVIDSHub. It is amazing to me that we do not hear more of these stories from Afghanistan, but the media wants us to believe this is the forgotten war. Forgotten by who? Not you. Not me. Maybe them? Anyway, who needs them?

The UN has a special office named, “United Nations Office of Drugs and Crime”, and apparently they reward people for cleaning up their drug problem. Let’s take a look first at what has occurred in past few years. In the years 2006 and 2007, this province was nearly poppy free.

U.N. Agency Declares Afghan Province ‘Nearly Poppy-Free’.

During a July 6 trip to the province, Afghanistan’s minister for counternarcotics, Gen. Khodaidad, announced that Konar has qualified for two monetary awards totaling $750,000 from the Counternarcotics Trust Fund.

Konar Gov. Sayed Fazlullah Wahidi and his provincial council decided to use $420,000 of that money to upgrade the Konar Teacher Training College with a 60-room dormitory, dining facility and meeting hall. A lack of dormitories requires students of either to commute or to rent local accommodations while attending school.

“This is a great day for Konar and Afghanistan”, said Navy Cmdr. Daniel Dwyer, Konar Provincial Reconstruction Team commander. “When you see the government of Afghanistan, on its own, bringing projects to its people that provide for long-term jobs and economic growth, it shows everyone that progress is well on its way.”

This is wonderful. This is good encouragement, by using other methods of working to achieve a good economy, and this is a way to show other provinces how to prosper without growing the poppies that are aiding the Taliban and AQ. Without this money, who knows? They may even have to get a job! LOL. Seriously though.

The governor of this province is not quite sure yet how spend the rest of the money, but he does have some ideas. He would like to build some irrigation canals, improve education, and then possible use the rest for either one big project or many smaller district projects. I vote for the smaller districts, but that’s me.

He is very proud of the people in his province, especially the elders, as am I, because he knows this would not be possible without their support and efforts.

“The people of Konar deserve the credit for the poppy eradication,” Wahidi said. “All the tribal elders and people of Konar are committed to putting an end to this [poppy] seed, because the smuggling, trafficking and growing of narcotics is forbidden by Islam.”

I don’t care much for the so-called religion, but I’m grateful to them for stopping the spread of heroin. Good job, you guys. Keep up the good work.

PS. I just want to add something that was not in this story but I know to be true. It was also done with ‘a little help’ by the US Military. HOOAH!

This Sunday, 15 June 2008, the Washington Post had an article concerning the sale and distribution of nuclear weapons blueprints captured by the Swiss government in the year 2006 and they subsequently destroyed these documents under the supervision of the UN’s IAEA. However, the existence of these documents were already well known to the IAEA since at least 2005. This is now being denied.

The countries pursuing the materials and ‘know how’ to build a nuclear weapon are North Korea, Iran, Lybia and Syria. If Lybia had indeed given their nuclear program to the United States in the year 2004, I would suggest this had been an on going operation, and it could be plausible that the IAEA did not know about it at first. Plausible, but not likely.

So what does this mean to the United States and other countries in the world? Iran could become a nuclear power much sooner than anyone is anticipating, and all countries are sitting around doing nothing while depending on the United States to protect them all.

Well, I have a suggestion. Since NATO is toothless in Afghanistan due to their country’s orders of not to fire unless fired upon, go home. You are in our way. You are getting our men and women killed, and I hate that. Europe should start training their men and women on how to fight a real war, because we need partners. We do not need more people to babysit. I have never heard of waiting until you take a chance with your life before you have permission to shoot at the enemy. This is bogus. Europe does not believe they are in a war.

Getting back to the nuclear weapons smuggling ring, this is what the Washington Post has to say:

An international smuggling ring that sold bomb-related parts to Libya, Iran and North Korea also managed to acquire blueprints for an advanced nuclear weapon, according to a draft report by a former top U.N. arms inspector that suggests the plans could have been shared secretly with any number of countries or rogue groups. [Emphasis mine.]

The drawings, discovered in 2006 on computers owned by Swiss businessmen – Marco and Urs and their father, Friedrich Tinner – included essential details for building a compact nuclear device that could be fitted on a type of ballistic missile used by Iran and more than a dozen developing countries, the report states. Later it is revealed that Urs may have been helping the US intelligence, but this has neither been confirmed nor denied.

It is later discovered that the IAEA got caught in another lie, they had known about these documents since at least 2005 [Paragraph 8]. As for this anonymous diplomat, Iran had demanded he be expelled from Iran and the investigations because he was the only one asking the right questions and demanding to see sites that Iran did not want to answer any questions about their undermining everyone or reveal any SECRETS. I remember this person as I wrote about him at the time.

The documents that were seized contained over 1000 Gigabytes of data which were destroyed by our ‘friends’ the Swiss. At the same time, they do not know all of the information that was in those relevant documents. They claim to have done this to keep the jihadis from getting their hands on them, but I am a skeptic in this arena. I don’t have any proof, but I have a feeling there were some nefarious activities between the businessmen who had the documents, the Swiss government and the UN. After all, they were all doing business with Iran, and let us not forget the Oil for $$$ UN scandal.

The WaPo also shares with us that the information given to Lybia was old, so that may coincide with the age of these documents. However, there were also some very new, sophisticated blueprints and materials. There is also an acknowledgement that Israel did indeed take out Syria’s nuclear reactor. Maybe this is why Syria did not squawk like a chicken with its head cut off when the incident occurred? *heh*

Albright, a former IAEA inspector in Iraq…although an assessment late last year by U.S. intelligence agencies concluded that Iran had discontinued its nuclear weapons program in 2003…His institute was the first to publicly identify the location of an alleged Syrian nuclear reactor that was destroyed by Israeli warplanes last September.

This next clip bothers the dickens out of me:

Iran also possesses medium-range ballistic missiles and is believed by U.S. government officials to be seeking the capability to build nuclear weapons in the future, although an assessment late last year by U.S. intelligence agencies concluded that Iran had discontinued its nuclear weapons program in 2003. [Emphasis mine.]

What is wrong with this picture? Well, on its face you are left to believe that Iran is a logical country who only wants to keep the peace, right? WRONG! If they did stop production, it was because we had them surrounded! We had just gone into Iraq, we were already in Afghanistan, and they were shaking in their boots. We should have taken them out then while we had the advantage. No such luck with the Euro-pee-ons begging the State Department not to allow a total victory in this area due to the sweet business dealings the Euro-pee-ons had with Iran.

If this had been any dictator or communist, they never would have questioned the validity of their claims, such as the possession of long range missles. My goodness, who does NOT know this? BTW, thank you again, Israel for a job well done!

About Marco and Urs and their father, Friedrich Tinner. They had been smuggling these nuclear weapons and/or blueprints since the mid-1980’s. How is this Bush’s fault? Anyway…These were Swiss businessmen who worked with A. Q. Khan of Pakistan as noted by the USA and the IAEA. It was only after a year long intelligence effort by the UK and the USA that concluded in 2003 that they were stopped.

Hmm. Could this also have had something to do with the so-called stoppage by Iran? Makes one wonder…

A footnote: Khan is now trying to tell anyone that will listen that he was used by the Pakistani government as a scapegoat. Maybe that is why he only received house arrest? Either way, Pakistan is another problem we will most certainly continue to discuss.

Another black eye for the IAEA is that they are now denying the existence of the second weapon’s documents, although they have shared the intelligence with the USA.

Be careful as you read the article from WaPo, because they are trying to make the Pakistani government appear as though they were genuinely shocked. They were not. It is not very difficult to fool this nimrod they have at the helm of the IAEA. I could probably build a nuclear weapon right in front of him, and he would not even know it. (Not that I know how, I do not.) The article is full of some things I did not already know, many I had already knew, and some things I know that apparently they do not! lol. All in all, it is a good article.

Which leads me to this conclusion. There are probably still more copies of those blueprints out there, we need to step up the heat on Pakistan to allow us access to Khan, Pakistan needs to stop making deals with the Taliban and al Qaida, and they had better get back on the right path if they expect one single shiny penny from us.

Also, we live in a dangerous world. I wonder what it was like in WWII when airplanes were just coming into the battlefield? I know one thing. It won’t be the same if nuclear weapons become the weapon of choice. We must move decisively and promptly if we are to save the world from a major holocaust of a proportion that is unconceivable at this time. Almost as unconceivable as having two planes fly into the World Trade Center, one plane flying into the Pentagon, and being downed in a field in Pennsylvania.

WASHINGTON (June 12, 2008) – Ongoing debate within Iraq’s political realm about negotiations over the U.S.-Iraq strategic framework agreement indicates the healthy development of Iraq’s young democracy, the U.S. military’s top officer said here today. The completion of the agreement would allow for continued U.S. military operations in Iraq after the United Nations security resolution ends Dec. 31.

Political debate in Iraq “historically, has not taken place,” Navy Adm. Mike Mullen, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, noted at a Government Executive Magazine-hosted breakfast at the National Press Club. Mullen said he is encouraged by what he called the “healthy aspect” of Iraqi officials’ statements regarding the agreement. Such debate over policy would be inconceivable under Saddam Hussein’s regime, he noted.

U.S. State Department and Iraqi officials are in negotiations over the agreement, which, among other things, specifies how U.S. troops posted in Iraq would be treated under Iraqi law as part of a status-of-forces pact. The United States does not want a permanent presence in Iraq, Mullen said. “This is no desire to have permanent bases in Iraq,” Mullen emphasized. “The desire, quite frankly, is to return our forces [home] as rapidly as we can. But, at the same time,” the admiral continued, “we’re also committed to providing the security that they need until they can stand up and provide their own security.” If no strategic framework agreement between the United States and Iraq is in place before Dec. 31, Mullen said, the U.N. resolution would have to be extended.

In my last post, I covered the basics of Sudan. I told you about the Comprehensive Peace Agreement (CPA) between Muslim North Sudan and Christian native black South Sudan which was signed on April 8, 2005. Now the Sudanese government has moved into an oil-rich southern town with its army to take over the oil which is in dispute between the two governments over its borders (North and South), and the fighting has broken out again. Will there be another civil war? Will the South finally win so the media can stop calling the Christians rebels?

I do not know. I pray the Christians kick their behinds once and for all. Enough is enough.

Okay, maybe I need to do better job of explaining, just in case you didn’t read this article. The Muslim North Sudan was in a state of civil war with the native black Christian South from 1956, when they received their freedom the UK, until 1972. Then they began another civil war 11 years later which lasted ~22~ years with the Southern native black Christians. Two million people perished. Haven’t you heard? The USA didn’t do it, the freakin’ Arabs did! I guess that’s why it didn’t bother anyone that the Muslims were committing genocide against CHRISTIANS. They were also native to the land, which means the ARABS were not. Enough said, eh? Not on your life. I will talk about this until someone who can do something about it hears me!

If you would care to read the articles about this situation, here are a few: Fighting in Sudan town raises civil war fears (Rosemary’s Thoughts.wordpress.com, because CNN changes their stories or they just disappear), Sudan: Fighting resumes between army and former southern rebels in oil-rich town of Abyei, Fighting in Sudan oil town kills 21 soldiers-army – SignOnSanDiego.com, and Same article just before this one, only this is on WordPress. I do this in case the article disappears. This has happened before, if you couldn’t tell. I like to be able to read my sources, not find them gone!

BTW, these articles will not say what I’ve stated so clearly here, and that is because of the Muslims. The media is government owned. Imagine if our press was government owned? I can only shudder to think how many people would be behind bars! Why do these so-called reporters allow them to control what they write? Because they are so-called reporters! Now if you really want to know what is going on in Sudan, you must watch it carefully to know when and who is lieing. You can usually assume it is the government but not always. Try the religious groups in the area. (I’m sorry, but I can’t find any right now. I’ve been at this article since yesterday, and it’s time to move on to today.)

Sudan gained its independence in the year 1956, but unfortunately it became a tug of war between the Arab North and the African South. It was a civil war between non-muslims, non-arabs, and it lasted until 1972. War broke out again between the North and the South in the year 1983. This time the war lasted until 2005 when the North/South Comprehensive Peace Agreement (CPA) was signed in January of 2005.

During these periods of time, more than 4 million people were displaced and 2 million people were killed or died due to the famine imposed by the power hungry islamists from the North. They have been trying to dominate the land politically, economically and socially ever since its independence. I guess it’s pretty easy to govern a country without any citizens, eh? Back to the facts. Sudan has a population of 40.2 million people. The median age is 18.9 years old.

In 2003, the Darfur region became the next victim of these islamic thugs. I have a problem with this date of 2003, since we went into Darfur around that time for a few months. However this is the date that the CIA gives, and we all know how accurate they are, eh? (I’m speaking of the upper echelon.)

The CIA claims that 200,000 – 400,000 people have been murdered. Now, let me ask you a question. When you see a poll, a survey, a whatever, and it has more than +/- 3% difference, do you accept that as fact? No? GOOD! It is beyond 500,000. I have personally been following this, and at one point the Sudanese government was murdering over 1000 people a day. And no one said a word. No one did anything. THIS bothers me. Whatever happened to, ‘Never again’?

Since December 31, 2007, the UN is trying to lay claim to the African Union (AU) who has been trying to keep the peace between Darfur and the muslims. The CIA states that as of early 2008, the peacekeeping troops have been struggling to do their jobs. Well, I have news for the CIA! Since they first began in April 8, 2004, after the first peace agreement, they have not had the backing of anyone. Period.

This war has spread over into Chad and the Central Africa Repuclic. It has caused instability to its entire region. Sudan seems comfortable enough to enter these country with its military and/or the janjaweed, and who’s there to stop them? Certainly not anyone who has the power to stop these little twirps.

Besides these incursions, Sudan has also had a large refugee population (if you can believe that!) from neighboring Ethiopia and Chad. This, however, does not help these people since the wars, poor transportation, poor infrastruction and a government that would rather have you dead anyway, it makes getting aid to these people almost impossible.

Why the history lesson? The CIA seems to have left out one of the main reasons I wanted to delve into this issue. In 1993, these animals dragged two of our men through their streets in Somalia, and we did nothing. Sudan wanted to get off the terrorist list in the USA, so they offered us Osama bin Laden in 1996. We did nothing.

He had his group of thugs with him. You know those ‘nice gentlemen’ who blew up the embassies in 1998? What did we do? Nothing. Well, it amounted to nothing. Then there was the USS Cole where we lost 17 men and women. What did we do? Not. A. D***. Thing.

Then President Bush came into office, and we were hit on our own soil. All eyes were on him, because he was the president. I guess there was something like a time warp, because that is the only thing that can explain why terrorism began only AFTER the IRAQ theater. Does no one remember the Twin Towers? Do they not remember all the people we lost that awful day?

I shake my head in disbelief when I hear Sen. Obama (you have to very careful not to mention his middle name is Hussein!) talk about foreign policy. He will walk into the Oval Office without a clue (as would I, so this is not personal) as to what is truly happening in the world, including Iraq.

He wants us out of Iraq. No debate as to why it is reasonable to stay, no listening to the Maliki government (but hey, don’t worry. He’ll talk with Ahmadinejad!), no mention of how close we are to the victory.

These thugs were in Afghanistan, so he may send all of troops over there for target practice. Why did they end up in Afghanistan, you ask? Good question which helps me tie this all together. After a lot of pressure, bin Laden was forced to leave Sudan. Is bin Laden the only jihadi, or are there more? I haven’t heard of him putting on a suicide belt, so I must assume that there are more than just him. Did they all leave Sudan? NO, they did not.

They still have their training camps in Sudan. They have thrown the people out of their homes of the high mountains. They have been growing in numbers, and they are planning another attack. I wonder why the CIA made no mention of this? All you have to do is pay attention. I guess that’s too much to ask of the people we hire to protect this country. Maybe it’s because they just want to be politically correct? To heck with that!

Sudan is a hot spot for jihadis, people are suffering genocide, and no one is saying a word. That is my purpose for writing this. My promise to the people who cannot make their voices heard will not allow me to remain silent.

Do I have a plan of action? Yes. Take out the government, and do the old time ‘Marshall Law’. It’s doable, and we could exterminate many of our enemies. The people could go back to their homes afterward, and we would have one less training ground for the jihadis. All in all, I like it.

Oh, did mention the most important thing? Islam must be killed. It must be outlawed. It must be exterminated. Then and only then will people be able to live in peace. Just look at the world map today and point to all the wars. What is the common thread? Islam.

Despite rosy statistics released by the State Department this week, families and children who have been approved to legally immigrate to the United States are still waiting in misery in Amman for U.S. embassy officials to process their visas, refugees and community leaders told Newsmax.

Iraqi Christian refugees who had been approved for immigration to the United States because they had close relatives who were U.S. citizens have been told at the embassy to hurry up and wait — if they have been lucky enough to hear anything at all.

“The U.S. embassy told us that they don’t have a process for reunification now,” said Father Raymond Moussalli, who heads the Chaldean Catholic Vicariate in Amman. “They told us the only way is by the UNHCR [United Nations High Commission for Refugees] or the IOM [International Office of Migration].”

The Department of State is paying over $50 million per year to the UNHCR to process the refugee claims of Iraqis who have been displaced by the sectarian fighting. And by all accounts here on the ground within the refugee community, the UNHCR office in Jordan has not been up to the task.

Some refugees complain of outright prejudice against Christians by UNHCR employees. Others complain of indifference. “Peter Janssen, the head of resettlement at the UNHCR in Amman, tells us not to complain,” a Chaldean relief worker told Newsmax.

In a confrontational meeting with a delegation of Christian aid organizations and a Newsmax reporter last fall, Janssen expressed the view that Iraqi Christians were privileged as compared to other Iraqis forced to leave their homeland and that “they shouldn’t complain.”

Raymond says some things have changed since the delegation led by former South Carolina Gov. David Beasely, Keith Roderick of Christian Solidarity International, and William Murray of the Religious Freedom Coalition met with U.S. embassy officials last October.

“One month later, Ambassador David Hale came here to our church along with his staff,” Raymond told Newsmax in an interview in his church on Thursday. “Before your trip here in October, we never had anyone from the staff of the U.S. embassy come visit us in this church,” he added. “Never.”

An embassy official handling refugee issues told the delegation it “wasn’t my job” to go to churches, even though that’s where the Christian refugees go for help.

Since then, the embassy has been meeting with representatives of the various Iraqi Christian communities on a bimonthly basis. Raymond was invited back to the embassy on Thursday. “I thanked Ambassador David Hale for his visit, and asked him, can’t you get the UNHCR to come to our church and meet the people, same as you?”

Until now, he added, no official from the UNHCR has ever reached out to the refugee community or visited one of the churches or schools where Iraqi families congregate.

“I am not allowed to work,” said Boutros Danka, 44, who met with a a reporter and a documentary filmmaker in a cramped basement apartment, where he lived with his wife, their three children, and his sister. “My mother helps us from the U.S. We live on faith and food aid, heaters, and clothes we get from Pastor Wadia and our church,” he said.

Danka’s mother fled from Saddam Hussein’s regime and has been living in the United States since 1994. His brother is a U.S. citizen and has been in the U.S. for 30 years.

Despite this, the UNHCR has never suggested that he ask his family members to apply for an I-130 visa, which allowed for family reunification. “Instead, we back to the UNHCR every six months to renew our refugee document, but they have never called us in for an interview.”

Earlier in the week, the State Department coordinator for Iraqi Refugee issues, James Foley, said the U.S. was continuing to step up approvals of Iraqi refugees seeking to immigrate to the United States.

In March, 751 Iraqi refugees entered the U.S., up from 444 in February and 375 in January, he said.

These latest figures bring total admissions for the fiscal year, which began in October 2007, to 2,627, according to a State Department fact sheet, although President Bush has given instructions for 12,000 Iraqi refugees to be admitted before year end.

Foley said that another 5,000 Iraqis had been approved for entry to the United States, and that interviews with another 8,000 were scheduled. But even approval for immigration does not mean an actual immigration visa.

Lufti Zamona, a Baghdad merchant who fled after his liquor store was fire-bombed by Islamic extremists on July 7, 2004, says he can’t understand the document he received from the United States government. “I have gone through UNHCR. I have been interviewed by IOM. I have even signed the oath,” he said.

Lutfi was interviewed and approved for immigration several months ago by a Department of Homeland Security team of “circuit riders,” who travel from embassy to embassy interviewing potential refugees to determine if they pose a security risk. They determined that Lutfi posed no threat to the United States, and sent him a “status report” of his application. A box was checked, showing that final approval was pending a review by “HQ.”

“What is ‘HQ’?” he asked me in Raymond’s office.

No one had ever thought to explain to him that DHS will run a review in its U.S. databases before clearing him for immigration. Once that review is complete, Lutfi must go to the U.S. embassy in Jordan to get his visa, a process that could take many months more.

“We thank the U.S. embassy for giving us more information on the new procedures” that allow for rapid resettlement of Iraqis who had worked for the coalition, Raymond told Newsmax.

He showed a clearly-worded, one-page fact sheet, that William Murray had asked ambassador Hale and his staff to produce last October. “It would be very helpful if the embassy could give us similar instructions for refugees waiting for family reunification,” he added..

Beneath the rosy statistics, thousands of Iraqi Christians are waiting for answers and information. “I can never go back to Iraq,” said Dalya Eskander, 34. “I am afraid they will kill my daughters.”

Eskander and her husband fled Iraq with their daughters after Islamic extremists kidnapped her husband’s brother and threatened to kidnap their oldest daughter. Their 10-year old daughter, Miriam, cried and prayed during the entire 24-hour journey by road to Jordan in 2006. “I prayed, God help us, God help us, over and over,” Miriam said.

Their driver told them that Islamic militants were lurking along the route. Despite the trauma, Miriam now wants to study to become a chemist, like her mother.

“We pray to Jesus, just for the phone to ring for the U.N. to say we can go to America,” Mrs. Eskander said. “We are illegal here. We want to build our future in another country. “

Can anyone say, ‘Discrimination’? Condi will meet terrorists to try to bring a so-called ‘peace treaty’ that will last as long as an ice cube in hell, but what about the Christians? Have we already become a muzlim nation? Shame on you, President Bush!

This is horrible. Mr. Timmerman has been trying to alert the world of these things, including atrocities in other parts of the world, and no one seems to get it. If they do get it, then they don’t care because there is no pounding on the state dept’s door or letters to congress or toll free phone calls to congress: 1-866-340-9281. Please, help your brothers and sisters. If you do not, who will? And you call yourself a Christian?…

Did the UN really call for the genocide of all Jews, especially those living in Israel? Not actually, but they may as well have. I have signed the petition, which will be available also for you to sign, stating that I support Israel in this issue. No people should have the right to outright murder another for the sole purpose that they are Jewish. This is against everything that is Holy, Humanitarian, and murder is just plain wrong.

John Dugard – UN Special Rapporteur

A recent UN report to the Human Rights Council (A/HRC/7/17) by UN Special Rapporteur John Dugard disregards international legal standards against terrorism and excuses the killing of innocents. We, the undersigned, urge the United Nations to reject categorically this attack on the standards of human decency at the heart of the UN’s origins.


Terrorism is the targeted killing of innocents to intimidate a population or compel a government to act in a particular way. This definition reflects an international legal consensus, but UN Rapporteur Dugard disagrees.

UN Rapporteur Dugard claims “a distinction must be drawn between acts of mindless terror…and acts committed in the course of a war of national liberation.” He then categorizes the acts perpetrated upon Israeli civilians by Palestinians acting “against occupation” as the second kind of terror.

No terror is “mindless” in the sense of being politically unmotivated by a sense of grievance, however misconceived the grievance may be.

UN Rapporteur Dugard seeks historical support for his position: “History is replete with examples of military occupation that have been resisted by violence – acts of terror”, analogizing the Israeli occupation resisted by Palestinian terror to “the German occupation resisted by European countries in the Second World War.”

Not every act of violence is an act of terror. Comparing the murderers of Israeli civilians to the liberators of Nazi Germany (and thus the Nazis’ victims to the Nazis themselves), is a slander against the Jewish state. In fact, the European Union includes in its working definition of anti-semitism “drawing comparisons of contemporary Israeli policy to that of the Nazis.”

UN Rapporteur Dugard argues that Palestinian terror “must be understood as being a[n] inevitable consequence of occupation” and that “Until this is done [occupation is ended] violence will continue.”

Inevitability absolves Palestinian terrorists from moral responsibility for their murderous acts.

So I suppose this means that if the UN building gets blown up by al Qaida, it’s okay? Is that what he’s really saying? What if it is blown up by some people who are just sick and tired of the UN ‘occupying’ USA soil and destroying our environment? Would that be okay with him? See, his reasoning falls short when applied to himself and his life. HYPOCRITE!

It alleges they have no choice but to kill Israelis – whether blowing up men, women and children in restaurants or on buses on the way to school or at synagogue, work or play.

UN Rapporteur Dugard maintains the only proper course of action to end Palestinian terror is to meet its perpetrators’ demands.

(Not on YOUR life.)

By implication, these demands are reasonable. But Palestinian terror groups have declared that they will not end their terror campaign until Israel as a Jewish state ceases to exist. And yet according to Dugard there is no point in time at which Palestinian terror becomes “mindless.”

WHAT? So we should bend over and kiss our arses good-bye, because that is what al Qaida desires? This ‘man’ is SICK!

The words of UN Rapporteur John Dugard serve to incite terror – an egregious violation of human rights – against Jewish men, women and children living in the Jewish homeland. They therefore stand in direct contradiction to the principles and purposes of the UN Charter. We call upon the United Nations to withdraw this discreditable report from circulation as an official UN document and to reject it as a statement of UN policy.

If I were not so angry about this, I would be in tears with the knowledge that the very organization that deemed Israel a country for the Jewish people is now calling for it’s destruction by omitting Israel’s Human Rights. Why do they have none? THAT IS NOT THE G-D I KNOW!

Here is the link for the petition. Please join me in telling the UN that this is unacceptable. Thank you.

As I was visiting the sites I have trackbacked to in the post right below this one, I came across David’s (third world county). He has this great post, and I couldn’t help myself. Thank you, David. ;)

Now try that on for size, UN. Ah, forget them. They’re too far gone or they’re one of them. For those who disagree with this, TOUGH. I do not wish to hear what you have to say at this time. I’m very angry right now, and I will possibly ban you from this site. Probably not, but possibly. Just leave your lies to yourself…for once.

Today in Sri Lanka, the “UN Department of Safety and Security (at Bauddhaloka Mawatha, Colombo, Sri Lanka)” sent out an advisory notice after receiving a letter with a white powdery substance in it. There is a letter was sent by deputy security advisor, UN DSS to all their contacts and UN offices and it states:

“At this stage it is not known whether any threat to health is emanating from the substance in the letter. There have been cases in the U.S. where letters containing the Bacillus Anthracis (anthrax) have been received. In some cases anthrax exposure took place, with several persons becoming infected. Laboratory tests will have to be conducted in order to rule out this possibility in case of the threat letter that was received by the local agency.

There is a remote likelihood that similar envelopes, whether it being a hoax or a real threat, could be sent to other agencies. It is of critical importance that the first response steps are followed. These have been laid out in the SOP in mail handling, which was distributed to all HoA before.

Due to the urgency of the matter please find below guidelines and ensure that your mail handling staff are IMMEDIATELY informed of them. Agencies in Colombo are requested to provided feedback that mail handling staff have been informed back to the EOC Colombo until 1600 hrs today, ASCs are advised to instruct agencies in their AOR likewise.”

As of right now, it is being investigated by the proper authorities. However, this is not the first time Sri Lanka has had to deal with threats from terrorists. In the 1980’s, the Tamil militants (unidentified) “issued threat to use biological materials against the Sinhalese”. They never did anything, but that was then. This is now. They have had time, interest, and know how in biological weapons since then.

Let us all pray that this is just a prank…
