Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu addressed Congress on Tuesday and warned that a nuclear deal with Iran would leave the Jewish state in great danger. House minority leader Nancy Pelosi said that the speech left her "near tears" and was an "insult to the intelligence of the United States."
"We have been told that no deal is better than a bad deal. Well, this is a bad deal. It is a very bad deal. We are better off without it," Netanyahu told the House of Representatives chamber, which CNN said generated "deafening cheers."
"We are being told that the only alternative to this bad deal is war. That is just not true. The alternative to this bad deal is a much better deal," Netanyahu added. more >>
While the world waits for America to join the fight against ISIS, there is little or no explanation from the Obama Administration as to why they will not move to protect the innocents.
In the early stages of the horror, ISIS militants engaged in the premeditated extermination of Christians in Iraq. Who could forget the images of these fathers, mothers and children fleeing to the tops of the mountains for safety with no food, water or weapons to protect themselves? Who can forget the images of these innocent children being raped and beheaded.
Just recently, hundreds of Christian souls, including women and children, were kidnapped for which diabolical acts will be committed upon them. more >>
The Rev. Franklin Graham has warned in an interview that President Barack Obama is "very sympathetic to Islam" and that America's foreign policy is influenced by Muslims. He added that this influence could lead to Christians and Jewish people being persecuted in the United States.
"There are Muslims that have access to him in the White House. Our foreign policy has a lot of influence now, from Muslims. We see the prime minister of Israel being snubbed by the president and by the White House and by the Democrats and it's because of the influence of Islam. They hate Israel and they hate Christians, and so the storm is coming, I believe," Graham told Gordon Robertson, host of CBN's "The 700 Club" interactive program.
Graham further pointed out that Obama had a Muslim father, and that as a child the president went to school in Indonesia, which has the largest Islamic population in the world. more >>
Southern Baptist Convention President, Ronnie Floyd, sent a letter to President Barack Obama on Sunday, asking him to "lead forward" in the fight against the Islamic State and "take necessary actions now" to bring an end to the suffering of millions who've been displaced, abused and killed as a result of ISIS' uprising.
The letter, which was also signed and supported by 16 former presidents of the convention, assured Obama that he has the "unequivocal support of the vast majority" of America's largest Protestant denomination in getting the United States more actively involved in ending ISIS' reign and the persecution of what the Scripture calls "the least of these."
"Since ISIS is a continuing threat to world peace in a way unknown to us since the Nazis of World War II, we humbly call upon you to use the influence and power of your distinguished office to take the necessary actions now in this urgent hour to bring an end to these human atrocities," Floyd's letter to Obama states. "The abuse, brutalization and murder of children, women, and men that is occurring before the world calls our country to lead forward to bring this to an end." more >>
Even in a Senate then controlled by Democrats, President Obama's National Security Adviser, Susan E. Rice, could not be confirmed as his second term Secretary of State. That's because she notoriously went on five Sunday television news talk shows to claim that the September 11, 2012 attack on our diplomatic compound at Benghazi was provoked by an anti-Islamic video. It soon became clear that cover story was false. She was then our Ambassador to the UN.
Now, Ambassador Rice is making news again. She told PBS's Charlie Rose that the address by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to Congress slated for this week "injected a degree of partisanship" into the U.S.-Israeli alliance that was "destructive to the fabric of the relationship."
That charge has certainly built the audience for the Prime Minister's address! more >>
In a recent interview, State Department spokeswoman Marie Harf said that to fight terrorism, "we need to go after the root causes that lead people to join these groups, whether it's a lack of opportunity for jobs…."
In other words, we can fight terrorism with a jobs program, sort of a stimulus program for the jihadists. If we only have enough shovel ready jobs for the jihadists, there will be no terrorism. How amazing naïve and how terrifyingly stupid, but this is the mentality that is prevalent throughout the Obama administration.
The history of Islamic terrorism is replete with examples of very rich Muslims, such as Osama Bin Laden, who join the jihad and kill for one basic reason and it is not the lack of a job. They kill the "infidels" because of their commitment to their Islamic faith, their interpretation of Islamic doctrine and their desire to serve Allah. It is why so many Islamic terrorists shout "Allahu Akbar" when they kill innocent people. more >>
