Adolf Hitler said, "the great masses of the people will more easily fall victims to a big lie than to a small one."
President Obama, Hillary Clinton, David Petraeus, the CIA, among others, provided weapons and billions of dollars to Islamists who are beheading Americans, systematically committing genocide against Christians, and destroying the democratic gains once achieved in Iraq. more >>
The Red Umbrella, an organization focused on empowering at-risk women, is now seeking to aid female refugees fleeing the Assad regime in Syria.
Based in Dallas, Texas, The Red Umbrella strives to help female refugees in the Middle East and raise awareness about their living conditions to the rest of the world, Lissette Handal, founder and CEO of TRU told The Christian Post.
"The perception people have of the Middle East here [in the U.S.] is of terrorists and the Islamic extremists. I think [Americans] forget that [these people] are also human beings just like you and me," Handal said. The political perception of what is the Middle East overshadows the human aspect." more >>
An Iraqi state television station is now airing a nationally televised parody series that directly mocks Islamic State militants and acts as an anti-ISIS propaganda tool, hoping to prevent more people from joining the jihadist movement.
The first episode of the 30-part comedy series "State of Myths" aired last weekend on the Iraqi owned al-Iraqiya television station. Set in a fictional Iraqi town that has been seized by ISIS, the show makes fun of the militants and their followers and symbolizes the Islamic State as if it had spawned from the devil.
The show's chief supervisor, Thayer Jiyad, said that the show's aim is to alleviate the widespread fear surrounding the group. more >>
A Muslim NFL player was penalized after dropping to his knees and praying following a touchdown on Monday night, leading to a discussion of whether his prayer should have gotten him a penalty.
Husain Abdullah of the Kansas City Chiefs returned an interception during a game against the New England Patriots. He ran the ball into the endzone for a touchdown before dropping to his knees, putting his forehead to the ground and praying. Abdullah received a penalty of unsportsmanlike conduct, angering fans and Muslims alike.
"Abdullah should not have been penalized," Michael Signora, NFL Vice President of Football Communications, posted on Twitter the following morning. "Officiating mechanic is not to flag player who goes to ground for religious reasons." more >>
Yesterday, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu addressed the United Nations about their struggle with Hamas.
Netanyahu noted that some of the countries that didn't support Israel in fighting Hamas were quick to support President Obama's actions against ISIS. Netanyahu said, "Hamas and ISIS are branches of the same poisonous tree." Both ISIS and Hamas present a very dangerous threat, as both have the ultimate goal of global domination.
Hamas, like ISIS, seeks to establish a caliphate, yet there has been very little support for Israel. Hamas placed rockets where Palestinian children live and play, showing their true colors by using civilians as human shields. Israel defended itself against these war crimes, and the actions of Hamas have yet to be denounced. more >>
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu addressed the United Nation's (U.N.) General Assembly, giving Israel a chance to refute comments made last Friday by Palestinian Authority President, Mahmoud Abbas. During his speech, Abbas characterized Israel's self-defense against Hamas, a terrorist organization, as "war crimes." Fatah and Hamas, two main Palestinian political factions, united in April and recently reaffirmed their unity government in the Gaza Strip. In June the United Nations Human Rights Council voted to investigate Israel on war crimes. The only country to reject this resolution was the United States.
Such allegations, against a country whose first priority is to protect the safety of their citizens, are appalling. Unfortunately, President Obama's choice words for our ally during his remarks at the U.N. did not help. Obama referred to the summer's conflict as one between "Palestinians and Israelis." He stated, "... the violence engulfing the region today has made too many Israelis ready to abandon the hard work of peace. But let's be clear: the status quo in the West Bank and Gaza is not sustainable. We cannot afford to turn away from this effort - not when rockets are fired at innocent Israelis, or the lives of so many Palestinian children are taken from us in Gaza."
Where is the outrage over a terrorist organization fighting from civilian areas, Mr. President? Let's be clear, the conflict in Gaza was not a war among peaceful Palestinians. Instead, it was a war waged by a group of Palestinians, one that is internationally categorized as a terrorist organization. Hamas put innocent lives in Gaza at risk by choosing conflict over diplomacy while using civilian populated areas to their advantage. more >>
