Judge Jeanine: ‘It Is Time For The Papacy To
Get Out In Front Of This Christian Massacre’

Lead Story by Judge Jeanine Pirro, Fox News Insider —
Judge Jeanine Pirro last night called on Pope Francis to take action as Christians in the Middle East are faced with the choice to either convert, leave or die.

Partial ‘Opening Statement’ Transcript: Tonight, Christians in the Middle East marked for death because of their faith, and no one is fighting for them.

As Christians are slaughtered, churches torched, and families forced from their homeland, the mass murder of Christians is underway. While Israeli Jews are under similar attack, at least they have Netanyahu, a leader who is willing to fight to the death.

So, who should be defending Christians? Who? The leader of the Catholic Church, the pope, the man who shepherds the faithful.

Now, it may seem to you that the destruction of biblical antiquities, the looting of churches, and the persecution of Christians are a half a globe away. It's someone else's problem. After all, you're safe. You live in the United States of America.

But you need to worry. A reverse crusade is already underway, and some of those extremists are already in the United States.

The radicalized Muslim group that has already created a caliphate in Syria, Iraq and the border of Jordan – a nation described not by nationality but by religion – issued an ultimatum to Christians to leave their homeland, convert to Islam, or die by the sword.

They spray paint the homes of Christians to identify those who must convert, leave, or die.

And as ISIS – no stranger to technology – posts pictures of Christians crucified, their intent to purge Christians from the Middle East is unquestioned.

And while I’m on the subject of who should be defending Christians, I might add that we are a nation founded on the Judeo-Christian ethic – as evidenced by our founding fathers in the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution – so we should be doing something.

Why has the Obama administration’s foreign policy ignored the killing of Christians in the Middle East? Why has he provided funding to the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt when the Egyptians themselves wanted the Brotherhood out because of their intolerance of other religions?

» Kerry’s Failed Cease-Fire Leads To More Violence
By Ariel Cohen, The Daily Caller —
After another attempt to broker peace in the Middle East, it appears U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry will come home empty handed yet again, and neither the Israelis nor Palestinians are happy with America’s top diplomat’s efforts in the region. On Friday, Kerry proposed a week long cease fire that Hamas rejected and Israeli leaders deemed “completely unacceptable” because it “would have strengthened extremists in the region.” Instead, both Israel and Hamas agreed to a 12-hour cease-fire. These small halts in violence led to little progress...

» Nearly 300,000 Suicides In India So Far From GMO Crop Failures
By Ethan A. Huff, Natural News —
The Western media is steeped in denial about the true damage being caused by genetically modified (GM) crops, especially in the developing Third World. But despite the lies you may have heard from mainstream news sources, nearly 300,000 Indian farmers have committed suicide since 1995 as a direct result of mounting debt and crop failures associated with GMO crops, and mainly cotton crops that were forcibly converted to patented, transgenic varieties owned by Big Biotech. A report by India's National Crime Records Bureau (NCRB) revealed that, between 1995 and 2011, 290,740 farmer suicides had taken place due to economic failure, poverty and bankruptcy caused by GMO adoption...

» Dave Hodges Interviews Jim Garrow “New” Operational Details About The Impending Attacks Upon U.S. Shopping Malls
By Dave Hodges, The Common Sense Show —
Dave Hodges interviewed former CIA operative, Dr. Jim Garrow, about a planned attack upon multiple shopping malls inside of the United States similar in scope to what happened in Nairobi. In fact, Dr. Garrow says that Nairobi was the beta test for what’s coming to shopping malls in the United States. Since Dr. Garrow’s first revelation about the coming series of terrorist actions, more information is coming to light regarding the operation. The end game is martial law with, as we have suspected, the UN in charge. The details are all here. The interview commences 6 minutes into the recording...

» Muslim Extremist Arrested For Murder Of Gays In Seattle
By Ryan Mauro, The Clarion Project —
Opposing Islamism isn’t just about terrorism and national security. Two Americans were killed on American soil due to Islamic ideology. Authorities have arrested Ali Muhammad Brown in New Jersey for executing two homosexuals in Seattle. He is reportedly a radical Muslim and received jihadist training in California in April. Brown’s execution of the two gays is not getting much media coverage. Perhaps this is because it is viewed as a probable hate crime and not an act of terrorism—but it shouldn’t make a difference. The bottom line is that innocent Americans lost their lives due to Islamic extremism on American soil. The fight against Islamism isn’t just about terrorism and national security. It’s about human rights and standing up for what is right...

Obama: Israel Must Institute
“Immediate, Unconditional Ceasefire”

“Do you see a man who is wise in his own eyes? There is more hope for a fool than for him.” ~ Proverbs 26:12

By Lea Speyer, Breaking Israel News —
US President Barack Obama has called on Israel to maintain an immediate, condition free humanitarian ceasefire with Gaza with a final goal of permanently ending all hostilities.

In a call to Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu late Sunday, Obama affirmed Israel’s right to self-defense and called for terror groups in Gaza to disarm.

“The President made clear the strategic imperative of instituting an immediate, unconditional humanitarian ceasefire that ends hostilities now and leads to a permanent cessation of hostilities based on the November 2012 ceasefire agreement,” the White House said in a statement.


Hamas officials have already dismissed Obama’s call for a ceasefire. Senior Hamas member Izzat Al-Rishq posted on his Facebook, “We say for the millionth time. Those who try to take our weapons, we will take their lives.”

» Chinese Government Removes Cross from Church
By Sarah Fisher, Truth Revolt —
A crackdown in China has led to the removal of a 10ft tall cross Wenzhou at the Longgang Huai En Church. Evangelist Qu Linuo said he and about 200 others had rushed to the Longgang Huai En Church in the eastern city of Wenzhou to protect the building but peacefully made way for the police, who used a crane to remove the 3-meter-tall (10-foot-tall) red cross from its steeple.. But experts and church leaders in this province south of Shanghai - the only one where the incidents are happening - say the government appears to be trying to suppress the fast-growing religion...

» Catholic Bishops: Obama ‘Implements Discrimination’
By Lauretta Brown, CNS News —
The U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) strongly condemned President Obama’s July 21 executive order, which prohibits federal contractors from discriminating "on the basis of sexual orientation and gender identity," saying it is "unprecedented and extreme and should be opposed" and, in effect, "implements discrimination." In a statement released Monday, Archbishop William E. Lori of Baltimore and Bishop Richard J. Malone of Buffalo noted that the executive order, which will impact a fifth of the U.S. workforce, discriminates against faithful Catholics...

» VIDEO: Joan Rivers Smacks Down BBC And CNN For Pro-Hamas, Anti-Israel Coverage
By Matthew Burke, Tea Party News Network (TPNN) —
“Let me just tell you,” a disgusted Joan Rivers told TMZ on Thursday. “If New Jersey were firing rockets into New York, we would wipe them out,” she said, referring to the Hamas terrorist regime who has reportedly fired over 1,600 rockets at Israel. Rivers told the reporter than Palestinians “cannot throw rockets and expect people [Israel] not to defend themselves.” When the reporter asked about civilian casualties in Gaza, a livid Rivers said, “Then don’t put your goddamn things [weapons of war] in private homes. I’m sorry, don’t you dare put weapons stashes in private homes and then we say ‘get out,’ of course we’re gonna do it!” she exclaimed to the reporter...

A Thank You Letter From Hamas To The Media
 photo 072814NewsBriefs10_IsraelToday.jpg
Dear Members of the Mainstream Media,

You’ve been awesome! Everyone knows that we start unwinnable wars with Israel because the real victory happens when you predictably side with us each time. And you’ve been so supportive of our strategy that we really want to acknowledge your helpfulness. In particular, we thank you for:

Focusing so much more on our suffering than anyone else’s. Nigerians must die in far greater numbers before you take notice, so we’re glad that you value our lives so much more.

Minimizing your coverage, if any, of our attacks that led up to Israel’s military response and generally providing so little context that outsiders think that Israelis kill Palestinians just for fun. We’re especially grateful to the French media for this. Their distortions of the conflict are so one-sided that they incite Muslims across France to attack Jews and synagogues, and that is welcomed by our anti-Semitic worldview (although, unfortunately, such attacks remind everyone why Jews need a state).

Emphasizing our civilian death toll without explaining that (1) our casualty reports are hasty and inflated, and (2) we maximize that total by using Palestinians to shield our weapons and by urging them to stay in the very areas that the IDF – in its annoying effort to minimize our civilian deaths – warns Gazans to evacuate.

Never mentioning the fact that if we could kill millions of Israelis, we would (after all, our charter calls for Israel’s destruction). Just as the 9/11 hijackers made the most of what they had but would have liked to kill far more Americans (for example, with the help of WMD), we too would love to kill far more Israelis. Indeed, we have purposely targeted Israel’s nuclear reactor on several occasions, with that very goal in mind. Fortunately, you never highlight the genocidal intent behind our attacks when mentioning Israel’s “disproportionate” response.

Never calling us jihadists even though we persecute Christians (like the ISIS, which just compelled Mosul’s Christians to convert to Islam). The forced conversion, expulsion, or murder of Christians and other religious minorities by Islamists has been happening for millennia, as assiduously documented in Crucified Again, but such historical context is thankfully absent from your reporting on our conflict with Israel.

Minimally reporting on our corruption, unfair wealth, or vast expenditures on tunnels to attack Israel while ordinary Palestinians grew poorer.

Overlooking how – to maximize Palestinian deaths – we store our missiles in an UNWRA-run school and how, when UNWRA finds out, they just hand us back our missiles.

Disregarding Arabs who have the courage to critique us – like Dr. Tawfik Hamid, an Islamist-turned-reformer who blames Palestinian suffering entirely on us.

Ignoring Israelis’ humanitarian folly in providing medical aid to the very terrorists trying to kill them.

Failing to acknowledge Israel’s immense restraint. Had we been fighting Syria’s Assad regime, by now Gaza would have been flattened – devastated by barrel bombs, poison gas, and other attacks that are far more indiscriminate than Israel’s intelligence-directed strikes. And of course, if Syria were killing us, you’d hardly care. But luckily, we’re dealing with Israel – that country that everyone loves to hate – so we can count on your helpful coverage here.

Omitting how Israel chose to sacrifice dozens of IDF soldiers when destroying our tunnels and weapons in densely populated areas like Shejaiya because doing so with airstrikes (which risks no soldiers) would have killed many thousands of Palestinians. Your friendly omission of such crucial facts reminds us of how wonderfully you covered Jenin in 2002, when (again) – rather than praise Israel’s humane but costly decision to use ground troops rather than airstrikes – you very helpfully and falsely accused Israel of a massacre during another IDF operation to stop Palestinian terrorist attacks on Israeli civilians.

Not sharing with your English readers what we openly say in Arabic: that we view any truce as just an opportunity to rearm for our next war against Israel (as our spokesman, Musheer Al Masri, recently declared on TV).

Not underscoring that Israel can do nothing to make peace with us (after all, Israelis ended their occupation of Gaza in 2005 and we’ve been rocketing them ever since). It’s a bit nervy of Israel to use its border controls to limit our ability to rearm and rebuild cross-border attack tunnels, but – with your help – maybe the next cease-fire will remove Israel’s blockade so that we can more easily replenish our weapons and restore our tunnels for our next attack. And yes, we’re embarrassed that our fellow Arab Muslims in Egypt also choose to blockade us because of the problems that we’ve caused them.

Not reminding readers, when you mention potential truce arrangements, that world powers are no more capable of ensuring a demilitarized Gaza than they were capable of disarming Hezbollah in south Lebanon.

Seriously, you’ve been AMAZING. Please keep it up!


p.s. - Many thanks also to the countless protesters around the world who follow your lead, embolden us, and make us look legit!
