Thanksgiving Proclamation 1789

26 11 2014

By George Washington, President, 1789

Whereas it is the duty of all nations to acknowledge the providence of Almighty God, to obey His will, to be grateful for His benefits, and humbly to implore His protection and favor; and Whereas both Houses of Congress have, by their joint committee, requested me to“recommend to the people of the United States a day of public thanksgiving and prayer, to be observed by acknowledging with grateful hearts the many and signal favors of Almighty God, especially by affording them an opportunity peaceably to establish a form of government for their safety and happiness:”

Now, therefore, I do recommend and assign Thursday, the 26th day of November next, to be devoted by the people of these States to the service of that great and glorious Being who is the beneficent author of all the good that was, that is, or that will be; that we may then all unite in rendering unto Him our sincere and humble thanks for His kind care and protection of the people of this country previous to their becoming a nation; for the signal and manifold mercies and the favorable interpositions of His providence in the course and conclusion of the late war; for the great degree of tranquility, union, and plenty which we have since enjoyed; for the peaceable and rational manner in which we have been enable to establish constitutions of government for our safety and happiness, and particularly the national one now lately instituted for the civil and religious liberty with which we are blessed, and the means we have of acquiring and diffusing useful knowledge; and, in general, for all the great and various favors which He has been pleased to confer upon us.

And also that we may then unite in most humbly offering our prayers and supplications to the great Lord and Ruler of Nations and beseech Him to pardon our national and other transgressions; to enable us all, whether in public or private stations, to perform our several and relative duties properly and punctually; to render our National Government a blessing to all the people by constantly being a Government of wise, just, and constitutional laws, discreetly and faithfully executed and obeyed; to protect and guide all sovereigns and nations (especially such as have shown kindness to us), and to bless them with good governments, peace, and concord; to promote the knowledge and practice of true religion and virtue, and the increase of science among them and us; and, generally to grant unto all mankind such a degree of temporal prosperity as He alone knows to be best.

Given under my hand, at the city of New York, the 3rd day of October, A.D. 1789.

Dateline: 11/14/14

20 11 2014

Most news stories have a dateline which includes the date, location, and today the news service which first published the story (Reuters, AP, ect.)
Most important is the publishing date and the location.  This story has several locations, but only one eventful date. Well, technically two dates exactly a hundred years apart.

November 14, 2014

Islamic State Dinar design, 2014 via WSJ

This date passed most Americans by with nothing more than a “TGIF”.  But Islam was celebrating.  Just as it did exactly 100 years prior, on November 14, 1914.  First we’ll look at a few “insignificant” stories that (barely) made the news, all on 11/14/14:

Dateline Iraq: Islamic State leader, “Caliph” Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi announces plans for IS (Islamic State) to begin minting  its own official Dinari coinage in various denominations for use across the newly established, and Sharia governed “Caliphate”.

This announcement came within 24 hours of a speech released by al-Baghdadi, wherein he vowed to press on in establishing the Caliphate and fight “to the last man” in order to fulfill Allah’s directive, calling on Muslims everywhere to join the Jihad.  This following rumors that he had been wounded in a coalition force bombing.

According to this USA Today story, the coins carry the words in Arabic: “The Islamic State / A Caliphate Based on the Doctrine of the Prophet.”  Nothing Islamic about that, Mr. Obama.

Dateline Washington DC:  The United States House of Representatives was re-convened by praises given to Allah in the official opening prayer by a New Jersey Imam, Hamad Ahmad Chebli of the Islamic Society of Central Jersey with these words:

“In the name of Allah, the most gracious, the most merciful,” he began. “Praise be to Allah, the cherisher, the sustainer of the world, the most gracious, the most merciful master of the Day of Judgment. Thee do we worship and thine do we seek.”

“Guide us to the safe path,” Chebli continued. “The god of the prophets and the messenger says in the Koran [that] he does not place a responsibility on you greater than you can bear. Everyone will receive the good they have earned and vice versa.”

He then asked that Allah bless and guide Congress. [Courtesy JewsNews]

No, this was not the first time that a Muslim opened Congress in prayer, but it was the first time the name of Allah was invoked, and the first time Quran was quoted in that prayer.  I wonder, when was the last time even a Christian prayer was allowed to invoke the name of Jesus Christ in the US Congress?

Dateline Nigeria:   Boko Haram, the Islamic Terrorist organization who kidnapped 276 schoolgirls from a single town, has now seized control of that town of Chibok, as well as Hong and Gombi as it continues its Jihad to establish Nigeria as an Islamic State.

Dateline Washington:    One hundred and two years ago (1912) the first services were held in Bethlehem Chapel, the first completed portion of the National Cathedral, which incidentally has been the longest construction project in US history, spanning 83 years with the cornerstone laid in the

National Cathedral, Washington DC via Wikipedia

presence of President Theodore Roosevelt (bearing the scripture “The Word was made flesh and dwelt among us” (John 1:14)  and the final “finial” placed in 1990 in the presence of President George H W Bush.  The National Cathedral quickly became the center of services of prayer, thanksgiving,  memorials and funerals of Presidents and other state dignitaries, as well as national prayer services such as the 9/11/2001 terrorist attacks on the US.  It has been designated by the United States Congress as a National House of Prayer.

Friday, November 14, 2014 the National House of Prayer became a mosque.  The administrators rearranged furnishings and laid prayer rugs for the 200 Muslim attendees in a fashion where they faced Mecca and did not have to view any Christian icons or symbols while praying to Allah.  How nice.  I am continuing to wait with bated breath the day when a Christian Pastor is invited into a Mosque to preach the Gospel and pray in the name of Jesus Christ!

The service was officiated by South Africa’s ambassador to the US, and Muslim scholar, Ibrahim Rasool.

Dates are not coincidental when it comes to Islam.  Symbolism of events and dates in history are very important and are used often to make a statement.  Take for instance, this date, 11/14/14.

Dateline Constantinople, Ottoman Empire, November 14, 1914:  The Caliph, Sheikh Ul Islam declares Jihad and urges Muslims to take up arms against the European Allies in World War One in its own alliance with Germany.  When the Caliph Mehmet II entered Constantinople in conquest in 1453, after 3 days of butchery, pillage and destruction, he rode to the Hagia Sophia, the greatest church of Eastern Orthodox Christianity, and halted its defacement.  He immediately called for dedicatory prayers and as the Adhan was echoing off the interior walls of the church, it was transformed into a Mosque, as a sign of conquest.  This has historically been the pattern, especially concerning any church of importance or grandeur, to take possession of and declare it a waqf (Islamic possession), which is forthwith and forever Islamic property.  The Grand Mosque of Mecca (The Kaabah), the Temple Mount in Jerusalem, and the Great Cordoba Mosque are all historical examples of this.

Armenian girls crucified by Turks, 1915

In that Fatwa, or declaration of Jihad, the Turkish Caliph Mehmet Ul Islam, outlined the Quranic rules for jihad which were instructions to “take no friends of the Jews or Christians” and “kill them wherever you find them”, driving the infidels from the Land.

In 1914, Turkey was home to about 2 million Armenian Christians, 1.8 million Greeks, and 750K Assyrian (or Syriac Christians).  By 1923, a million Greeks, 300K Syriac’s, and 1.5 million Armenian Christians had been slaughtered by Turkish and Ottoman Kurdish forces.  Most of the survivors had been displaced, running for their lives, or in deportation pogroms.

Ottoman Interior Minister Mehmet Talat Pasha is on record ordering, “Kill every Armenian man, woman, and child without concern.”

Yet, even today Turkey’s government refuses to recognize the holocaust perpetrated by its early 20th century governments, initiating the bloodiest century in world history.  The Turkish government has banned books discussing the matter and continues its denial, with PM Recip Tayyip Erdogen calling for “an impartial study by historians” as to the fate of the Armenian People during WW1.  Maybe we could loan him a few of our “historians” who have revised our own American History for today’s consumption.

While the Pogroms, the “death marches” and the extermination orders began to be fulfilled in 1915, November 14, 1914 was the date of issuance of this official Fatwa which gave not only official authority, but moral prejudicial purpose according to the tenets of Islam, as directed in the Quran and Hadith composing the legal basis of Islamic Jurisprudence (Sharia).   It was modeled after the last words of the Prophet Muhammad himself, “O Lord, perish the Jews and the Christians. They made churches of the graves of their Prophets. Beware, there should be no two faiths in Arabia. (Hadith – Muwatta Imam Malik, p. 371)  Stands to reason that the Turkish Caliph would emulate that Prophet above all Prophets, and seek to eliminate all faiths in Turkey, except Islam.

As far as genocides go, the Armenians don’t get much press.  We all have heard of the Jewish Holocaust.  We’ve heard of the short-lived Rwanda genocide where 800,000 were killed in just a couple of months in 1994.  We know of the “Killing Fields” of Cambodia in the late ’70’s when Pol Pot’s Khmer Rouge wiped out over 2 million ethnic minorities and anyone who was a threat to the Communist ideology.  Maybe you’ve even heard of the Ukrainian genocide when Stalin starved or executed 7 million, mostly farmers who refused to “Collectivize” after the Communist Revolution formed the USSR, although he was responsible for several genocides that never made Western attention.

But the Armenian genocide continues to resonate for the United States and other Western nations who are increasingly faced with Islamic infiltration and confrontation.   It is amazing how the Turkish Delegation continues to work effectively in statehouses around the United States, with little or no resistance.  Turkey’s “cold war” on Armenia continues, even though Armenia has been relegated to a small sliver of mostly mountainous country less than 12,000 sq miles sandwiched between Turkey, Iran, and Azerbaijan, with Georgia on the north in a region which was part of the old Soviet Union, and had been unstable for several years following USSR’s dissolution.  Modern Armenia, population 3 million, has good foreign relations with pretty much everyone other than its Turkic neighbors (Turkey and Azerbaijan) who have blockaded the Armenians for 20 years following a hot war, and has a security relationship with Russia for protection against its two hostile neighbors.

Meanwhile, the Turks are busy conducting public relations programs across the United States, working to win the “hearts and minds” of American civil servants at all levels, from local city councils and police and fire departments, to state Legislators, Sheriffs offices, and local FBI offices.  They extend an invitation to an awards dinner, then present the targeted individual or group with some award concerning community relations.  They normally operate through a local Turkish organization such as Raindrop Turkish House or other TCAE (Turqoise Council of American Eurasians) affiliates.  Most, if not all these organizations are associated with Fethullah Gulen, the Turkish Imam who lives in Pennsylvania. They have a growing number of Turkish Charter Schools around the USA, and continue to expand that movement, lobbying state legislators.  Every legislative session these groups will host a “Legislative Reception” where elected officials are enticed with Turkish food, culture and entertainment.  They are then encouraged to join the hosts for a “trip of a lifetime” to their home country of Turkey, usually about 10 days, expenses paid of course.   These Turkish emissaries then continue to bring resolution after resolution into legislatures of many states which either praise Azerbaijan or condemn Armenia, or seek to expand current relations with the Turkish government itself.  Check your state legislature and most likely you’ll find them there.

The Kansas Legislature has dealt with a couple of these resolutions.  The first was a blatant attempt to deceive lawmakers into passing a “Turkish-Kansas Friendship Resolution” which was fraught with false claims of Turkey’s great human rights policies.  That was an embarrassment to our Turkish “friends” in attendance, being refused before it even came to a vote, so the next attempt was to get a Representative to carry a pro-Azerbaijan resolution the next year.

[Now Kansas has a long-standing mutually beneficial relationship with Armenia.  In 2003, The Republic of Armenia signed a bilateral affairs agreement with the U.S. Department of Defense and the state of Kansas establishing the Kansas-Armenia State Partnership Program, which includes services and training in a number of security and strategic defense issues including counter-terrorism.  Armenian troops have also served in Iraq and Afghanistan as part of the international Coalition Forces against Islamic Terrorism.]

Off floor debate and discussion became quite controversial once again, and one Kansas Democrat Representative who had just recently returned from one of those junkets to Azerbaijan and sponsored the resolution was overheard saying of the Armenians, “Those people don’t matter and their land is just desert”!  The Turks and the Azerbaijani’s had done their job well, but the resolution failed to accomplish the desired outcome, prompting two of the same sponsors to bring a pro-Armenian Resolution immediately.

The Armenians are a tough, resilient people.  For centuries they have been the subject of pogroms, genocide, persecution and wars.  They are a Christian culture on the border between atheism and Islam.  They are an ancient people with a proud heritage and an uncertain future in a part of the world where nothing is taken for granted.  Today they face the additional threat of the Islamic State, or the latest Caliphate, who has already targeted Armenians in Iraq and Syria.  American politics notwithstanding, the Armenian people will likely remain when the American people are scattered.

I have attached a short video of one Armenian-American family’s story.  Please take a look and reflect.  The world is not what it seems.  Coincidence, or political statement?





Crony Christianity! When ‘religious’ charities reap tax dollars for their ‘good works’

14 10 2014

ingrafted:

The last time this sort of thing happened the churches involved were referred to as “Reich Church”, the official church of the Nazi Regime. Those pastors signed off on Hitler’s “Aryan Clause” and agreed to monitor it’s congregations for dissent, propagate the Nazi ideology, and enjoy the “protection” of the state. Please read another great piece by Ann Corcoran, Refugee Resettlement Watch. H/T American Thinker

I love it!  Crony Christianity!  It’s like crony capitalism when government and big business work hand in hand (benefiting each other) to the detriment of those paying the bills—you—but this time it’s religious charities feeding on the taxpayer teat while directing government policy.

And, I am overjoyed to see that so many people, writers like Lee Cary, are starting to understand the depth of this evil perpetrated on the American citizen by ‘religious’ behemoths in the name of Christian charity.

Oklahoma Mosque Exposed for Teaching Jihad (Holy War)

3 10 2014

Now infamous beheader, Alton Nolan, aka Jah’Keem Yisrael, attended Islamic Society of Greater Oklahoma City. This is where he was taught the principal of Islamic Jihad, defined in Umdat al-Salik, the “Classic Manual of Islamic Sacred Law” as “war against non-Muslims…to establish the religion [Islam]”. This volume continues to quote both Quran and Hadith justifying and giving instruction for jihad including:

“I have been commanded to fight people until they testify that there is no god but Allah and that Muhammad is the Messenger of Allah, and perform the prayer[convert to Islam], and pay zakat. If they say it, they have saved their blood and possessions from me, except for the rights of Islam over them.”-Bukhari

And this Hadith from Sahi Muslim:

“To go forth in the morning or evening to fight in the path of Allah is better than the whole world and everything in it.”

IN a recent interview with Megan Kelly, a man identified as “Noor” who also attended the ISGOKC mosque revealed that what the mosque leaders say in public and what they teach behind closed doors are two totally differing narratives. Noor confirmed that he attended the mosque for 2 years, and was taught that protecting fellow Muslims, even Osama bin Laden, from non-Muslims was the duty of all Muslims. He also spoke about “Taqqiya” (deception) whereby the Muslim is to lie in order to advance the cause of Islam.

Islamic Society of Greater Oklahoma City is the local chapter of Islamic Society of North America (ISNA), one of several Muslim Brotherhood front groups in America named as an “undindicted co-conspirator” in the Holy Land Foundation trial of 2008. ISNA has chapters in most major cities in the United States. An Imam, Suhaib Webb, formerly of ISGOKC, has connections with other Islamist Mosques, including the Islamic Society of Boston mosque where the “Boston Bombers” attended, and had ties to Al Qaeda mastermind Anwar al-Awlaki and was recently calling for an “Islamic State” at a Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) fundraiser.

The accused, Alton Nolan, has asked to be represented by a Muslim attorney. Prosecutors will seek the death penalty.

Watch the “Noor” video with Megan Kelly. It will put to rest any question what ISNA mosques are up to in America.





The Oklahoma Beheading: The Narrative is in the Works

27 09 2014

According to a CNN story, Alton Nolan, 30, was fired from his job at Vaughan Foods in Moore, Oklahoma, and went on a bloodletting rampage, beheading a 54 year old woman and stabbing another 43 year old woman. Not included even once is the Islamic name that Nolan had chosen after his conversion, “Jah’Keem Yisrael”.

The CNN version says that Nolan had recently been incarcerated (2013) for possession, escaping, and resisting an officer. It also says he had been trying convert co-workers to Islam. But, the CNN narrative is very careful to say that “beheading raises questions but officials say no terror link”, and that “it is not known if Nolen’s religion had anything to do with” the beheading. CNN also reported that “all U.S. law enforcement officials said was that there are no indications linking the Moore attack to terrorism.”

A quick look at Jah’Keem’s Facebook page reveals his interest in Jihad and Islamist activities abroad, and his devotion to Allah and the peaceful prophet, Muhammad.

Facebook-Jah'Keem Yisrael

Facebook, Album, Jah'Keem Yisrael

But the Independent Journal Review went a bit deeper still and posted “33 Things We Learned…” about Yah’Keem Yisrael, including more Facebook posts of heroes such as Osama Bin Laden, ISIL Terrorists whom he refers to as “my Muslim brothers”, himself studying Quran at mosque and posts glorifying the 911 attacks on America.

You can draw your own conclusions, but my money is that the official line will be “workplace violence”. The Feds, under pressure from CAIR (Council on American Islamic Relations) will not draw any connections to anyone else who believes, practices, teaches, or proselytizes for the ideology known as Islam. If they cannot find a direct link to some cell group, there will be no further examination made of those who recruited him while in prison or taught him at the mosque. This failure to follow the obvious link to an ideology which has been the common link around the world for violence and unrest, genocide, and terror attacks upon peoples of all races around the world, is akin to Holocaust denial. The obvious is omitted despite the evidence.

As IJReview puts it, “A preferred narrative surrounding the gruesome killing has been that he was just a disgruntled worker doing what disgruntled workers do. Nothing to see here – move along.”

Watch for more of these “Lone Wolf” events. This is only the beginning.

“I shall cast terror into the hearts of the infidels. Strike off their heads, strike off the very tips of their fingers!” Quran 8:13

So is ISIL (ISIS, Islamic State) Islamic or Not?

26 09 2014

Incidentally, ISIL is probably the more accurate acronym to describe the terrorist army advancing across Syria and Iraq, setting up the new Islamic Khilafah (Islamic State, which I wrote about back in 2011). ISIL stands for the Islamic State in the Levant. The Levant is that region in the Middle East often referred to as the “Fertile Crescent”. This region extends from the rivers of Iraq through Syria, northern Jordan, Lebanon, and Israel. Yes, Israel…

Seems that ISIL is having trouble convincing President Obama that they actually do represent the fundamentals of Islam, as they raze the landscape of non-Muslims wherever they go, just as Muhammad did in the 7 Century. Jihadwatch.org published this graphic by Nicolai Sennels which puts it all in very simple terms. Judge for yourself – (H/T to Mr. Sennels and Jihad Watch)

Immigration is key to the “stealth jihad” says Muslim convert to Christianity

22 09 2014

ingrafted:

I have been warning of the “stealth jihad” being perpetrated upon America, and in particular upon her Churches, for many years now. The whole “Interfaith Dialog” movement was begun in 2002, right after 911, in order to “reform” Islam’s image. Sadly, this is the ONLY reformation that Islam has or will ever incurr because the theology that drives the ideology known as Islam is not debatable. Any Muslim who speaks of “reformation” or changing Quran or Sharia is automatically ostracized or labeled “Apostate”, which status qualifies for the death penalty. A pretty good method of assuring that the fundamental doctrines of Islam can never be “moderated”. Satan did his work well when he developed this “Beast”!

Much has been reported about Latin Americans sneaking across the U.S. southern border, but there may be a greater danger looming in America’s heartland in the form of nearly 2 million Muslims who have made their way to the U.S. since 1992.
