A Battle Won, A War Still Being Fought!

I am pleased to report that the Egyptian culture minister Faruq Hosni was defeated 27/31 yesterday at the UNESCO second vote for their new Director General. Bulgarian diplomat Irina Bokova was elected instead. Somehow, the people listened to the concerns, complaints and petitions against Mr. Hosni and his anti-Semitic stance.
Mr. Hosni was apparently unjustly accused of anti-Semitism and had personally apologized to some Jewish leaders, including French Holocaust researcher Serge Karlsfeld, about his vitriolic remarks.
I find it interesting that the minute he lost the vote, he blamed the whole defeat on a worldwide "Jewish Conspiracy" based in New York. (read more here). Hmmmmm!? looks to me like it is a good thing that he did not get in after all!

A small battle was won with Mr. Hosni's defeat, while a larger one is about to take place in our nation's capital.

Tomorrow, Friday September 25 will be a very special day for Muslims in America as an estimated 50,000 of them will gather in Washington D.C. on Capitol Hill for "Jummah Prayer (Friday prayer) on Capitol Hill.
This event is advertised on a special website at www.islamoncapitolhill.com as a peaceful prayer gathering of Muslim as per their site:

We have seen many groups, religious or not, gather in our nation's capital for various reasons. that, in and of itself, is the beauty of the freedom we have in our great country.
Why is this gathering any different?
Well, I cannot say for sure if the agenda will be different from what is advertised on the website, but a little research on the two imams who will be reciting the prayers from the Qur'an, will uncover quite a different story that the one they listed on their credentials.
Note their motto: OUR TIME HAS COME!


Sheikh Ahmed Dewidar, one of the two leaders for the event , is advertised as standing shoulder to shoulder with President George W.
Bush at Ground Zero after the events of 9/11. In an interview, the same man also claimed that " The Jews" were responsible for the events of 9/11
Additionally, Mr. Dewidar was also quoted on TV saying that one day the white house would be a muslim house.
The other Imam, Muhammad Al Hussayn Jebril, has some connections with a Carolina mosque harboring Jihadists.

It remains to be seen what exactly will come from this Muslim gathering. I have serious doubts about any positive, tolerant and loving outcome when I see the leadership involved. Additionally, a careful study of their website's logo shows a page of the Qur'an juxtaposed next to our constitution. Is it me, or the right side (Muslim page) is slightly wider than the left side (US constitution)?

This being said, tomorrow is the ideal setting for the followers of Yeshua (Jesus) to take time in their day (around noon EST), and pray for the many Muslims gathering on Capitol Hill. Pray that they would supernaturally meet Yeshua. Pray that they would renounce Islam and the false and hateful teachings of the Qur'an.

PRAY, PRAY, PRAY but don't forget to LOVE!
...and remember the words of Yeshua (Jesus)

You have heard that it was said, ‘ YOU SHALL LOVE YOUR NEIGHBOR, and hate your enemy.’ “But I say to you, love your enemies, and pray for those who persecute you" Matthew 5:43-44

New UNESCO Director General a Muslim?

The United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) is an agency of the United Nations that was established in 1945. It strives to contribute to peace and security by advancing international collaboration through education, science and culture. It also claims to promote justice, human rights and fundamental freedoms as proclaimed in the United Nations Charter.

UNESCO (based in Paris, France) is currently seeking a new Director General to replace Mr Koïchiro Matsuura who will end his second term in November 2009. UNESCO Executive Board will vote the new Director General in from a list of nine candidates.

The leading candidate is Egypt Culture Minister Faruq Hosni. While he fell short of the 30 votes needed to be elected, he is still considered the most likely next Director General. There is a great concern by world citizens who adhere to the values proclaimed and hopefully upheld by UNESCO. A final vote will be held shortly with results in October 2009.

Mr. Faruq Hosni has a history of rejecting cultural relations with Israel and he was once a proponent of Hebrew book burning in Egyptian libraries.

He is said to have apologized about his biased censorship in the name of Islam. He also claims that he is not an anti-Semite since he restored all the synagogues in Egypt.

The water is muddy at best. Mr Hosni might have changed his stance on book burning - a good move if you want to be the next UNESCO Director General - but he remains a Muslim. What do I mean by that?

While not all Muslims are terrorists and not all Muslims hate Israel and the Jewish people, I see Mr Hosni's appointment as one more step towards Global Muslim control. He himself might or might not be a practicing Muslim. He might even call himself a "moderate Muslim" (no such thing in my book). The reality is that with a Muslim at the head of an organization created to promote education, science and culture, the future of our free world seems again a little shakier.

Political Correctness towards Islam will be the demise of Western Civilization!

Where Were You on September 11, 2001?

Eight years ago, lives were lost, buildings leveled and enemies made. Western civilization will never be the same. Just as we can divide Jewish History using the Holocaust as a marker, I believe that we should divide American History using the events of 9/11 as a marker.
As the 9/11 deniers and conspiracy theorists have come and gone and will continue to clutter the scene with their warped agendas, WE MUST ALWAYS REMEMBER THE FACTS.
I often feel like Americans have returned to the pre 9/11 state of affairs in their own lives. Yes we need to move on, yes we need to build up, and yes we need to forgive...BUT WE CANNOT FORGET.
Our country is obsessed with political correctness and multiculturalism to the point of ignoring any existing danger and/or potential ones.
I need to forgive because Yeshua (Jesus) who lives in me and guides my days, did forgive. We need to love because we are His disciples and He is the epitome of love. But we must gird ourselves with common sense as we share the love of Messiah with others.
Today is the eighth anniversary of the day that changed Western Civilization forever. Let's not fool ourselves, we have been and will be at war for a very long time since September 11, 2001. This is a different kind of war. Not a war on terror, not a war against Iran or Afghanistan but a war against radical Islam.
Months ago, I discovered a movie that I have since highly recommended to many. I invite all of you who care to be educated and want to make a difference, to watch the movie titled "The Third Jihad" for free on their website for the next 5 days in memory of 9/11.
This movie is a sobering reality check that too many Americans wish would disappear if they could only ignore it long enough.
Country artist Alan Jackson who I believe is a follower of Yeshua said it very well in the song he wrote after 9/11. Please watch "The Third Jihad", then watch Alan Jackson's video.

"Where Were You (When The World Stopped Turning)" Alan Jackson

Where were you when the world stopped turning that September day
Out in the yard with your wife and children
Working on some stage in LA
Did you stand there in shock at the site of
That black smoke rising against that blue sky
Did you shout out in anger
In fear for your neighbor
Or did you just sit down and cry

Did you weep for the children
Who lost their dear loved ones
And pray for the ones who don't know
Did you rejoice for the people who walked from the rubble
And sob for the ones left below

Did you burst out in pride
For the red white and blue
The heroes who died just doing what they do
Did you look up to heaven for some kind of answer
And look at yourself to what really matters

Where were you when the world stopped turning that September day
Teaching a class full of innocent children
Driving down some cold interstate
Did you feel guilty cause you're a survivor
In a crowded room did you feel alone
Did you call up your mother and tell her you love her
Did you dust off that bible at home
Did you open your eyes and hope it never happened
Close your eyes and not go to sleep
Did you notice the sunset the first time in ages
Speak with some stranger on the street
Did you lay down at night and think of tomorrow
Go out and buy you a gun
Did you turn off that violent old movie you're watching
And turn on "I Love Lucy" reruns
Did you go to a church and hold hands with some stranger
Stand in line and give your own blood
Did you just stay home and cling tight to your family
Thank God you had somebody to love

I'm just a singer of simple songs
I'm not a real political man
I watch CNN but I'm not sure I can tell you
The difference in Iraq and Iran
But I know Jesus and I talk to God
And I remember this from when I was young
Faith hope and love are some good things he gave us
And the greatest is love

The greatest is love
The greatest is love

Where were you when the world stopped turning that September day

Do you remember where you were on September 11, 2001?
I invite you to pray today for the victims families AND for the perpetrators salvation
Matthew 5:43-44
God bless America!

Doing Good for Goodness Sake!

As much as I see it as my obligation to educate, expose and call to action all those who oppose anti-Semitism, I occasionally feel depleted of the words to use to describe how far the world has gone in its attempt at demonizing Israel and the Jewish people.
That is usually when the Lord in its infinite kindness, directs me to some article where man's kindness is demonstrated. Just in time for me to regain a little hope in mankind. Stories like the following keep me going in my task to tell all about the hatred of my people, because once in a while, against the flow of humanity's hatred for Israel, someone comes and extends a hand of compassion.
British subject Nicholas Winton was such a man in the summer of 1939 when he just about single handedly rescued 669 Jewish children for most certain destruction in Auschwitz and other camps.
His story as reported in HaAretz is a beautiful and simple story of compassion and love for mankind. As a matter of fact, as it appears, he never even told his wife about his heroic endeavour until 50 years later when she found records of the event in their attic.

Winton considered the rescue project so natural that he never bothered to mention it, even to his wife Grete. His activity came to light only 50 years later, when she was looking for something in the attic of their home and found an old suitcase with a scrapbook from the war years that included a list of the 669 rescued children.

Ture heroism often goes unnoticed. Sir Nicholas Winton (knighted by the Queen in 2002) will be 100 this year. The article goes on to wonder if he will be the next recipient of the Nobel Prize.
I have long lost my respect for the Nobel Prize Organization since they handed the Nobel Peace Prize to Yasser Arafat in 1994. My prayer is that they would redeem themselves and make Sir Nicholas Winton the next laureate, recognizing a decent man who did good...simply for goodness sake!
