Gone: First Jell-O, Now Santa Thanks to Muslim Complaints

Tuesday, October 2nd, 2007

Step right up dhimmi’s (Islam’s name for the lowest class of human being who currently occupy the United States, aka United States Citizens) and claim your right to dhimmitude (the Islamic system of governing populations conquered by jihad wars, encompassing all of the demographic, ethnic, and religious aspects of the political system. –The Status of Non-Muslim Minorities Under Islamic Rule) as you continue to walk blindly toward shari’a (Islamic) law in this country.
Now you to can celebrate a nameless, bland holiday at Christmas called “winter festival”.
“Why is this” do you ask? I’ll tell you why. Because Muslims complained to the school system about Halloween and Christmas.

So long, Halloween parade. Farewell, Santa’s gift shop.

The holiday traditions are facing elimination in some Oak Lawn schools this year after complaints that the activities are offensive, particularly to Muslim students.

Final decisions on which of the festivities will be axed will fall to the principals at each of Ridgeland School District 122’s five schools, Supt. Tom Smyth said.

Parents expect that the announcement is going to add to the tension that has been building since officials agreed earlier this month to change the lunch menu to exclude items containing pork to accommodate Muslim students. News that Jell-O was struck from the menu caused such a stir that officials have agreed to bring it back. Gelatin is often made with tissue or bones of pigs or other animals.

That controversy now appears to have been been dwarfed by the holiday debate, which became so acrimonious Wednesday that police were called to Columbus Manor School to intervene in a shouting match among parents.

Robertson is hoping to strike compromises that will keep traditions alive and be culturally acceptable to all students — nearly half of whom are of Arab descent at Columbus Manor, she says. Fewer than a third of students districtwide are of Arab descent, according to Smyth.

Following the example of Lieb Elementary School, Columbus Manor School will exchange the annual Halloween parade for a fall festival next month. The holiday gift bazaars at both schools also will remain, but they’ll likely be moved to the PTA-sponsored after-school winter festival. And Santa’s annual visit probably will be on a Saturday. (as usual, it’s the Christians who are forced to give into the wishes of the Muslims. -ed.)

Why The Rebirth Of Israel Is An End Times Sign

Tuesday, October 2nd, 2007

Read this excellent Bible study by Jack Kelley over on the RaptureReady blog.

Students of prophecy often identify the Lesson of the Fig Tree in Matt. 24 as a reference to Israel. While the fig tree is sometimes used to symbolize Israel, this is not one of those times. The fig tree is one of the last trees to bud in the spring, so when it begins to get leaves people know that summer is right around the corner. There’ll be no more false starts, no more cold snaps. Summer is now certain and soon. Jesus used this analogy to tell people who’ll be on Earth at the time that when they see the things he described beginning in Matt. 24:15, they’ll know that His coming is really near.

Earlier in Matt. 24 He had told them that wars and rumors of war will be characteristic of the age (Matt. 24:6), and that the earthquakes and famines they’ll notice will be like the beginning of birth pangs, mild and infrequent at first but more intense and more frequent as the end approaches (Matt. 24:7-8). Then there’ll be increased anti-Semitism, apostasy, false prophets and deception, in the midst of which the Gospel will be preached in all nations (Matt. 24:9-14). But when they see the Abomination of Desolation, a man standing in the Temple telling people he’s God, things will begin to get serious fast and the countdown will begin on the most terrifying period of time in the history of man. This is what He compared to the fig tree getting leaves. When they see that, they know that His return is certain and soon. That’s the lesson of the Fig Tree.

Clinton Judge Confronted with Hillary ‘Smoking-Gun’ Video

Tuesday, October 2nd, 2007

For those of you have who have not heard about this (and since it’s not in the mainstream media at all, most likely most of you have not heard about it), Hillary Clinton, appears to have accepted more campaign donations that were illegal.
Accepting the funds in question as direct donations would make her guilty of committing a felony. Of course, not wanting this to happen, a Clinton appointed judge had ruled earlier that Senator Clinton had nothing to do with the fund raiser.
Now the same judge has been presented with evidence in the form of a video that shows Senator Clinton directly involved with the in breaking the law.

A federal judge who stated in court Sen. Hillary Clinton had nothing to do with the planning and preparation for a scandal-plagued Hollywood fundraiser, received by hand-delivery yesterday a transcript of a videotape that allegedly captures the New York Democrat committing felonies related to the event.

The transcript, along with a letter demanding a hearing, was hand-delivered to Federal Judge A. Howard Matz by Douglas Cogan, a regular contributor to FreeRepublic.com who has followed the case closely and helped produce a documentary.

As WND reported, the tape – held by the U.S. attorney for the Eastern District of New York from 2001 to 2007 – documents a July 2000 phone call that purportedly shows Clinton taking an active role in the production of the fundraiser.

Business mogul Peter Franklin Paul, who has filed a $17 million fraud lawsuit against Sen. Clinton and her husband, former President Bill Clinton, contends the senator’s participation in soliciting performers and planning for the August 2000 Hollywood fundraiser would make his more than $1.2 million in contributions to the event a direct donation to her Senate campaign rather than to a joint fundraising committee. That would violate federal statutes that limit “hard money” contributions to a candidate to $2,000 per person. Knowingly accepting or soliciting $25,000 or more in a calendar year is a felony carrying a prison sentence of up to five years.

Folsom Street “Fair” in San Francisco Exposes Children to Public Nudity/Sex Acts

Tuesday, October 2nd, 2007

This is so disgusting that I am even having trouble writing about it.
This last week, there was a street “fair” in San Francisco, that celebrated depraved sex acts and homosexuality. This “fair”, sponsored by Miller Beer, invited and exposed (no pun intended) teens and even toddlers to view deplorable sex acts in public.
If you want more details, see Michelle Malkin’s posts here and here.

Trans World Radio Impacting Muslim Countries for Christ

Tuesday, October 2nd, 2007

In the Bible, Matthew 24:14 says: “And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached in the whole world as a testimony to all nations, and then the end will come.”
I have been of the opinion, for some time, that this passage is very close to being accomplished. Shortwave radio continues to be one of the only affordable means of sending information over long distances to all parts of the world. People in third world countries can afford the relatively inexpensive receivers necessary to hear these broadcast.
As this article points out, in many Muslim countries, it is legal to listen to Christian broadcast and messages, but radio signals do not respect borders. So despite the Muslim leaders best efforts, the Word of Christ is still being heard.

The coordinator of Trans World Radio (TWR) broadcasts to the Arab world says the ministry is making a major impact in the Muslim world.

“We believe God has put us here for a purpose. He wants us to be the salt and light; He wants us to be the good news [of salvation in Christ] in this part of the world,” he says. “So, a faithful body of Christian believers are facing huge tasks, because they want to fulfill their calling and they want to be the good news for this part of the world — and they believe that there’s something they can contribute to the Muslim community.”

“Missionaries cannot go everywhere in the Arab world, but radio waves can penetrate all the borders and can deliver the good news to the people everywhere in the Arab world,” he states. “So, anyone who lives in Arab world have the opportunity to tune in every evening and listen to the good news. And I tell you, for so many people who are living in this part of the world, their only way out, their only way to listen to the good news is through radio.”
