A new video, purportedly released by the Islamic State terror group on the Muslim festival of Eid, shows men accused of spying for the United States being slaughtered like lambs and hanging upside down from meat hooks inside a slaughterhouse.
The more than 12-minute video, titled "The Making of Illusion" and released from "Wilayat al-Khayr," aka Deir ez-Zor area of northeastern Syria on Monday, carries footage of executions and past terror attacks as well as "spy" scenes stolen from television shows and Hollywood movies, according to Heavy.com, which featured the unedited video on its website.
The video shows prisoners' throats being cut in a slaughterhouse, an executioner wearing a white outfit carrying two people, one under each arm, through the slaughterhouse and prisoners hanging upside down by their feet from meat hooks with their throats cut as others await execution, according to the Daily Mail. more >>
I am writing these reflections on September 11, 2016, just 15 years after what many call the most tragic day in American history — the day in which more than 3,000 innocent civilians died at the hands of young murderous, suicidal devotees of an oppressive religion.
It is a splendid, sunny Sunday in NYC — not unlike that beautiful, tragic Tuesday, September 11, 2001 we remember so well.
I sense the amazing grace of God in the Divine powerful presence and protections and also in the wonderful beauty of this "day that the Lord has made." Yet I feel the unspeakable grief at the senseless pain and loss we are remembering. This grief we still feel in New York City, my town. It is magnified by the combination of the huge human loss, the perversion of religion, and the stunning inability of our many PC-enslaved leaders to think or speak clearly on this Islamic terrorist threat, a mortal danger to us that is still growing. more >>
Pastor Saeed Abedini, a former American hostage who was held for three and a half years in an Iranian prison for his Christian faith, said on the 15th anniversary of 9/11 that Muslims started a war on Christianity with the terror attacks.
Abedini said that although most Christian pastors do not want to say it, Islam is a satanic religion that leads people astray.
The holy pilgrimage known as the Hajj has reached its final stages as more than 1.5 million devotees gathered at Mount Arafat to offer prayers and to hear the Quran being recited. Muslims in unprecedented numbers formed at the site starting at sunrise.
Sad news was also disseminated to the people who were gathered. Abdul Aziz al-Sheikh, Saudi Arabia's top cleric, will not be able to deliver the Hajj sermon because of health reasons. This is the first time that it happened in 35 years that Aziz al-Sheikh served as a cleric. The traditional sermon is one of the highlights of the Hajj.
Abdul Aziz al-Sheikh also declared in a statement that Iranians were not considered Muslims. This sparked comments from the supreme leader of Iraq Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, who made negative remarks about how Saudi Arabia manages the Hajj. more >>
WASHINGTON — Family Research Council President Tony Perkins responded to Hillary Clinton's assertion that Donald Trump's "homophobic" and "Islamophobic" supporters are a "basket of deplorables" by wondering how a Clinton administration would punish said "deplorables."
After Clinton spoke Friday night at a fundraiser in Manhattan and said that "you could put half of Trump's supporters into what I call the basket of deplorables," social conservatives and evangelicals gathered at the annual Family Research Council's Values Voters Summit didn't take too kindly to Clinton's statement.
In a news conference discussing the summit and FRC's national 20-state bus tour over the next two months leading up to the election, Perkins was asked for a response to Clinton's "deplorables" comment. more >>
American Catholic Cardinal Raymond Burke, the former head of the highest court at the Vatican, has said that despite what some people claim, it's not true that Christians and Muslims worship the same God.
Burke explained that while Christians seek to follow the way of Jesus, the God of Islam seeks to govern countries and people's lives.
Burke, who serves as archbishop and the patron of the Sovereign Military Order of Malta, made his remarks during a teleconference last month, the National Catholic Register reported this week, in which he said: more >>
