Remains Of Dozens Of Syrian Soldiers
Impaled On Poles

Michael Carl, WND — The response in the West to the horrific beheading of dozens of soldiers at a Syrian base has been muted, according to an analyst in Washington, partly because Saudi Arabia allegedly is a major backer of the perpetrators, the Islamic State, formerly known as the Islamic State of Iraq and greater Syria, the ISIS.

Islamic State guerrillas attacked the base in Raqqa, Syria, for two days before seizing it and leaving more than 50 soldiers dead and another 200 unaccounted for, according to the Syrian Human Rights Observatory.

Video, which has not been independently verified, shows Islamic State guerrillas putting the severed heads on poles.

William Murray, chairman of the Religious Freedom Coalition in Washington, D.C., believes the U.S. policy in the Middle East is hamstrung by American dependency on Saudi Arabia as an economic and political partner in the region.

“We are the puppets of the Saudis and we can’t stop the Sunni rebels, because that would upset the Saudis,” Murray said.

In June, Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki, who heads Iraq’s Shiite-dominated government, declared “we hold Saudi Arabia responsible” for giving financial aid and moral support to the Islamic State.

Murray said the “extreme violence of ISIS and other Sunni terror groups can be linked directly to Islamic schools funded by Saudi Arabia.”

He said even schools operated by the founder of the Nigerian jihadist group, Boko Haram, were financed by the Saudi royal family.

“Without Saudi textbooks declaring the supremacy of Islam and the destruction of democracy, young men could not be recruited to come to Iraq and Syria to commit genocide against Christians,” Murray said.

WND recently reported evidence the Saudis are heavily funding jihad in sub-Saharan Africa.

Jihad Watch publisher Robert Spencer told WND that whether or not the Saudis are actually supporting the Islamic State, if the West doesn’t respond, it can expect “more frequent jihad terror attacks and increasing cultural aggressiveness from pro-Shariah Islamic supremacists.”

Spencer said Christians should be among
the strongest defenders of freedom.

“Prayer, but not quietism,” he said of the response. “We must act to defend freedom. Remember that the heart of the Islamic world – Egypt, Syria, etc. – was once Christian. It could happen here.”

Responding to the administration’s silence concerning anti-Christian violence in Iraq and Syria, Rep. Frank Wolf, R-Va., spoke out on the House floor.

He read from an article titled “Has Last Christian Left Iraqi City of Mosul After 2,000 Years?” that recounted the ordeal of Samer Kamil Yacub, who was alone when four Islamic jihadists carrying AK-47s arrived at his front door and ordered him to leave the city.

The 70-year-old Christian had failed to comply with an ISIS decree to choose one of three options: stay and pay a tax, convert to Islam or be killed.

Yacub said a fighter told him: “I have orders to kill you now.”

But Yacub said everyone in his neighborhood was Muslim, and about 20 of them came to his front door to try to convince ISIS not to kill him.

NBC said the rebels spared Yacub but threw him out of the city where he had spent his entire life.

They also took his Iraqi ID card before informing him that an elderly women would be given his house.

WARNING: This Video of Atrocities Committed by Islamic Jihadists is Extremely Graphic:

The Arabic language narration of the video of the slaughter of the Syrian soldiers that has been circulating on the Internet has been translated by
In the name of Allah, most gracious, most merciful. He had fulfilled his promise and defeated the enemy by himself. Your brothers here, the soldiers of the Islamic Caliphate, Allah had blessed us a great blessing from him.

He had allowed us to defeat Division 17. This is a victory from Allah. We thank Allah for our strength and power, and our armament. Today, and until the day of judgment, devils who Allah had allowed us to defeat, and to be hung in this place, and we ask Allah to complete this victory the great victory of your brothers in the Islamic Caliphate.

Allah had promised the believers that they will dominate the land as it was dominated previously. And will strengthen the religion to be acceptable to him.

And after their fear, he will give them safety to worship me, that they may not worship others besides me; and whoever disbelieves, these are the wrongdoers. They must worship me “and must associate anyone with me” (Quran), and that means that they believe in the absolute oneness of Allah. The nation has been victorious, that its base is the unique oneness of Allah. Just as Muhammad was victorious in Mecca when he was surrounded for three years, but the oneness faith has proclaimed itself in the hearts in the individuals; and Allah gave them victory over the land. Here are your brothers, by the will he gave them victory with the oneness of Allah, to defeat the kafirs (unbelievers). But when the oneness was proclaimed, your brothers were victorious. Here are heads that have ripened, that were ready for the plucking.
WND reported in March 2013 that U.S. government silence regarding anti-Christian persecution has been the rule.

Paul Marshall, a senior fellow at the Hudson Institute said the U.S. “has tended to underplay religious persecution in general – and called it something else – and, in the case of Christians, often does not mention what is happening in places like Iraq and Egypt.”

“Or, the federal government mentions the fact of persecution of people, but, often with Christians, not their religion nor the fact that they are being persecuted because of their religion, as distinct from race, etc.,” Marshall said.

Atlas Shrugs publisher, author and Islam analyst Pamela Geller believes that U.S. failure to combat jihad overseas will have dire consequences. She believes jihad is coming to America.

“We will see civil strife and warfare in the streets,” she said.

“Americans should act to defend their homes and families. No Christian has the right to obligate someone else to turn the other cheek,” Geller said.

Geller said the American church has been largely silent on the issue of Islamic persecution of Christians, because “the churches are controlled by leftists who believe in dialogue more than they do in truth.”

Spencer said many churches don’t respond because it “would not be multicultural and would harm interfaith dialogue.”

He said he has seen reports of ISIS and other jihadists entering the U.S. through the southern border with Mexico and isn’t expecting a response from the Obama administration.» Full Article

Armed militia groups along the Texas-Mexico border have grown to more than 10 active “teams” from El Paso to the Rio Grande Valley, according to the San Antonio Express-News. More than 30 photos obtained by the newspaper show dozens of members posing at campsites while carrying semi-automatic rifles and tactical gear. Many are wearing masks and camouflage to avoid being “identified by gangs and cartel members.” “We have patriots all across this country who are willing to sacrifice their time, money even quit their jobs to come down and fight for freedom, liberty and national sovereignty,” Davis said in the interview...

WASHINGTON – The U.S. congressman said his trip to the border showed him the mind-boggling nature of the problem in a nutshell. Rep. Jason Chaffetz, R-Utah, described to a hearing held by the House Judiciary Committee Tuesday morning how he saw illegal immigrants arrive on the border, claim asylum, and then be given a court date as far in the future as 2020. “Meanwhile they get a work permit to compete against those legally and lawfully here.” Chaffetz said there is a proper place for asylum but the current system is being abused in great numbers, and it’s all the fault of President Obama for not enforcing the immigration laws...

‘Because There Is A War On For Your Mind’

Americans Advised To Unquestioningly Follow Government Conclusions

Kurt Nimmo, — The incessant propaganda campaign waged by Democrats and the Obama administration characterizing an unprecedented wave of illegal immigrants entering the U.S. as refugees fleeing from violence has shaped public perception of the crisis.

Just over a quarter of respondents to a Public Religion Research Institute survey believe underage immigrants are entering the country illegally, while nearly 70 percent say the federal government should treat the children as refugees and not illegal immigrants.

“Of those polled, 56 percent said the families of children coming from Central America were acting to keep the young people safe from violence in their home countries. Some 38 percent of those polled said the families were ‘taking advantage of American good will’ and trying to stay illegally in the United States,” The New York Times reports.

A law enforcement intelligence report, however, disputes the claim about Central American violence pushed by the government. Instead, according to a report received by KRGV, the influx is the direct result of people in Central America being told they will be provided with permits and be allowed to stay in the United States and “reunite with their families and better themselves financially.”

The report also states violence in Central America is in decline. According to an elite, law-enforcement sensitive El Paso Intelligence Center (EPIC) intel report from July 7, 2014:
In late May, the U.S. Border Patrol interviewed unaccompanied children (UAC) and migrant families apprehended in the Rio Grande Valley. Of the 230 total migrants interviewed, 219 cited the primary reason for migrating to the United States was the perception of U.S. immigration laws granting free passes or permisos to UAC and adult female OTMs traveling with minors. Migrants indicated that knowledge of permisos was widespread across Central America due to word of mouth, local, and international media messaging—prompting many to depart for the United States within 30 days of becoming aware of these perceived benefits, according to the same reporting.
The establishment media has not reported on the EPIC findings and other information indicating the flood of illegal immigrants has little to do with violence. Because of this many Americans are left with a distorted and less than factual view of what is happening along the border in Texas and elsewhere in the Southwest.

The poll results would likely be different if Americans knew about the disproportionate use of welfare and other redistributive programs used by immigrants.

Milton Friedman - Illegal Immigration - PT 1

(1 of 2) Professor Friedman looks at the dynamics of illegal immigration.

Unlimited immigration is impossible in a welfare state.

In 2009, according to research conducted by the Center for Immigration Studies, “57 percent of households headed by an immigrant (legal and illegal) with children (under 18) used at least one welfare program, compared to 39 percent for native households with children.” The rates for this tax payer funded assistance is the highest in states along the border – Arizona, Texas, and California. The largest percentage of welfare recipients are from Dominican Republic (82 percent), Mexico and Guatemala (75 percent), and Ecuador (70 percent).

The latest influx of poverty-stricken and uneducated illegal immigrants will undoubtedly strain and eventually bankrupt welfare programs. “Welfare use tends to be high for both new arrivals and established residents. In 2009, 60 percent of households with children headed by an immigrant who arrived in 2000 or later used at least one welfare program; for households headed by immigrants who arrived before 2000 it was 55 percent.”

“Already in this country, over the past five years, we’ve seen unprecedented increases in people/families on food stamps (SNAP program) now approaching 50 million; 10 million + now on disability and a stunning 92 million Americans are NOT working at all. Who in their right mind actually believes we can absorb tens of thousands of aliens without collapsing an already fragile economy?” writes Mike Hendren.

Despite the obvious detrimental impact of millions of unskilled and under-educated immigrants and their dependent children on the economy, the establishment continues to argue the influx is good for America.

For instance The Hill, a newspaper and website written for and about Congress, argues “information derived from reputable, nonpartisan sources” including the NGO think tank Pew Research Center, the USDA and the U.S. Department of Labor, should only be considered when considering the illegal immigration issue. Despite evidence to the contrary, The Hill states the “truth of the matter is that illegal immigrants are important to the U.S. economy.”

The Hill instructs Americans to unquestioningly follow the conclusions of establishment economists and discount the views of “radio show hosts” and others not working for the government.

After illegal aliens from Central America are captured after traveling 1,500 miles to reach the United States, the federal government is shipping them over 3,000 miles across the country to various shelters before finally releasing them onto the streets. In one typical example, two teenagers from Honduras travelled roughly 1,500 miles to McAllen, Texas, before being caught by U.S. officials, who then placed them on taxpayer-funded flights from Texas to Arizona, Arizona to Oklahoma and then back to Arizona, a trip twice the distance of their original journey to America...

The One Rally The Democrat Media Complex
Doesn’t Want To Cover

This Strategy Involves Talking Back To Biased Professors
And The Entire Notion Of ‘Replacement Theology’

Lead Story by Jennifer Burke, Tea Party News Network (TPNN) —
As anti-Semitism seems to be sadly on the rise in America, one group took a very visible stand in support of Israel that did not get coverage from the Democrat Media Complex.

On Monday July 21st, Christians United for Israel (CUFI), headed by evangelical pastor John Hagee, held a rally in D.C.. The rally, named the Washington, D.C. Summit, unabashedly demonstrated their support of Israel. This happened as many countries around the world turned against Israel, as pro-Hamas rallies were held in both Europe and America, and as the Obama regime has largely remained silent on the anti-Israel sentiment that is disturbingly on the rise.

Israel is working diligently to defend itself from the thousands of missiles being shot at them by Hamas in Operation Protective Edge. CUFI is simultaneously letting its voice be heard in their support of Israel’s efforts and right to protect itself.

FrontPageMag reports on Hagee’s efforts to #StandWithIsrael.
Led by firebrand evangelist Pastor John Hagee, some 4,800 foot stomping, shofar-blowing Christian delegates traveled from across the nation and some from overseas to attend the non-stop cavalcade of podium grandiloquence, towering video effects, mesmerizing Israeli music, and special informational sessions. Part tent revival and part political salvo, CUFI’s Washington Summit is patterned after the mega-gatherings staged by the American Israel Public Affairs Committee in the same hall. CUFI speakers brought clarity and context to its attendees in the midst of the latest fog of the latest Arab-Israeli war.
The group’s effort in support of Israel was recognized by Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu..
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu took time, via taped message, to thank the evangelical crowd for standing by Israel during its hourglass of need. He spoke from Israel, bunkered in a secure room at the height of the conflict that day. To thunderous applause, Senator Lindsay Graham exhorted the Israelis in their Gaza strategy to “go as far as you need to go, and do what you’ve got to do.”
CUFI has efforts that extend beyond simply rallies and gatherings. They also announced a strategy to counter the “Replacement Theology” teaching at colleges which erroneously identify the Jews as losing their covenant with God.
To counter Christianity’s internal upheaval about the Jewish State, the podium proudly acknowledged 800 campus representatives in attendance engaged in a bold new student-led initiative to combat BDS, anti-Jewish agitation, and a rash anti-Israel attacks on campus, from the dorm room to the classroom. This strategy involves talking back to biased professors and the entire notion of Replacement Theology.

» The AP Might As Well Stop Pretending To Be Neutral After The Anti-Israel Gesture They Just Made
By B. Christopher Agee, Western Journalism —
AP content...ostensibly strives to be the pinnacle of unbiased coverage.
While an anti-Israel bias might not be uncommon among America’s leftist media, the Associated Press posted an article – along with an accompanying Twitter post – that resulted in widespread criticism. AP content, which is used by other news outlets across the nation, ostensibly strives to be the pinnacle of unbiased coverage. The first paragraph of a story published this week, however, portrays the U.S. support of Israel as something altogether worthy of derision. “Members of Congress are falling over one another to show their support for Israel,” the article begins.

Compromise, of course, is where two people get together and agree on what they both know is wrong.

By a vote of 4-3, the Pierce County Council approved the resolution, making the council the first government entity to display the motto in the state. But the matter had been the subject of debate since its introduction by sponsor Jim McCune (R-Graham).

At least one Christian woman, also from Africa, was lauding the 27-year-old's resilience, and thanking her for bearing "heroic witness to the virtues of faith, marriage, and motherhood."

» China Ramping Up Persecution of Christians
By Daniel Wiser, The Washington Free Beacon —
Issued orders to demolish more than 100 churches in the province
Chinese authorities are ramping up their persecution of Christian churches in response to what they perceive as an emerging threat to the communist regime, according to reports. Public security officials in recent days forcibly removed crosses from two churches in the southeastern coastal province of Zhejiang, the New York Times reported. Authorities have now issued orders to demolish more than 100 churches in the province—most of them state-approved, as opposed to the illegal underground communities suppressed by officials. Chinese officials appear to be acting on concerns that the growing Christian movement could soon rival the influence of the 86 million members of the Communist Party. A 2011 Pew Research report estimated that China has 67 million Christians, about 5 percent of its population...

A three member panel of the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals heard oral arguments earlier this year concerning the constitutionality of Mississippi’s law that requires abortionists to maintain hospital privileges within 30 miles of their abortion clinic. If allowed to be enforced, the law could close the Jackson Women’s Health Organization, the only abortion clinic in the State of Mississippi.. The abortion facility could not obtain admitting privileges at a local hospital and would have been forced to close out of noncompliance with the law...
