Jews are Greedy, Aren't They?

WOW! try to tell a joke like this about Muslims and you get street riots and embassy protests around the world. Do it on African Americans and Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson hold hands, marching on the streets and protesting against racism. Do it on the Jewish people....and it;s a funny joke...This reminds me of the greedy Jewish merchant Shylock depicted in William Shaekaspere's "The Merchant of Venice". (see illustration below)

As it appears, stereotypes never go away they just get recycled into more contemporary jokes and diatribes. What a sad reminder of the human nature. (click here for video of the joke).

The Erosion of "The Day of Prayer"

May 6th, 2010 will be the next "National Day of Prayer". Prayer for and by our government is a tradition that goes back 200 years. But recently, there has been a shift that appears to slowly ostracize Bible believers and followers of Yeshua (Jesus of Nazareth).
Reverend Franklin Graham was to lead the ceremony at the Pentagon next week but because of previous statements he had made about Islam, he has been "disinvited".
Amongst other statements, Graham has said: "I love the people of Islam but their religion, I do not agree with their religion at all. And if you look at what the religion does just to women, women alone, it is just horrid. And so yes, I speak out for women. I speak out for people that live under Islam, that are enslaved by Islam and I want them to know that they can be free,"
Frankly, there is nothing abrasive or racist about that statement. It simply brings up the fact that Islam, according to the teaching of the Koran, is not a religion of peace.
The Council of American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) immediately called for supporters to petition the Pentagon to drop Graham from the event.
AND THEY WON!!! (see full article here)
DOES AMERICA HAVE ANY BACKBONE?
IS OUR GOVERNMENT PRO-ISLAM (we know it is anti-Israel already so being pro-Islam wouldn't be much of a stretch.)
WHAT HAPPENED TO FREEDOM OF SPEECH AND FREEDOM OF RELIGION?
Aren't these part of our constitution?
I recently saw a bumper sticker that made me laugh and cringe at the same time. It simply said:
LEGALIZE THE CONSTITUTION! Wow, how true is that!?
If we believe that the Bible is the Word of God and we stand on its principles, we cannot remain silent.
Let us be reminded of the powerful words by German pastor Martin Niemöller:

"THEY CAME FIRST for the Communists,
and I didn't speak up because I wasn't a Communist.

THEN THEY CAME for the Jews,
and I didn't speak up because I wasn't a Jew.

THEN THEY CAME for the trade unionists,
and I didn't speak up because I wasn't a trade unionist.

THEN THEY CAME for me
and by that time no one was left to speak up."

AT A TIME WHEN WE HAVE BEEN FORBIDDEN TO PRAY WITH OUR GOVERNMENT, IT IS CRUCIAL THAT WE PRAY FOR OUR GOVERNMENT!
