National Council of Churches Praises Ahmadinejad

Monday, October 8th, 2007

More Christians are quickly joining the ranks of the “fallen away” predicted in the Bible.

In the presence of God and of Christ Jesus, who will judge the living and the dead, and in view of his appearing and his kingdom, I give you this charge: Preach the Word; be prepared in season and out of season; correct, rebuke and encourage-with great patience and careful instruction. For the time will come when men will not put up with sound doctrine. Instead, to suit their own desires, they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear. They will turn their ears away from the truth and turn aside to myths.
2 Timothy 4:1-4

The head of a pro-Israel ministry is deeply troubled that the National Council of Churches recently heaped glowing praise on Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.

Recently the associate general secretary for interfaith relations for the National Council of Churches (NCC) sent a letter to President Bush stating that he wished the president would meet with the Iranian leader. J. Daryl Byler said a conversation between the two men “could signal a positive change in a relationship severed more than 25 years ago.”

“Why are we cozying up to a guy who’s calling for our total destruction, and then actually saying glowing things about a man who’s having messianic visions, who feels it’s his responsibility to bring on the Mahdi,” she (Jan Markell, founder of Olive Tree Ministries) says. “I just think that things are spinning way out of control. I mean, trusting Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, trusting his word could be fatal to nations, not just to individuals. The entire Middle East could go up in flames at any time.”

Olmert Prepares to Give Up Part or All of Jerusalem

Monday, October 8th, 2007

Continuing to defy God’s ownership of the Holy Land, especially Jerusalem, Israeli Prime Minister Olmert continues to pave the way to giving up either part or all of Jerusalem to the Muslims.

JERUSALEM (Reuters) – Prime Minister Ehud Olmert’s deputy said on Monday that Israel should be prepared to enter future negotiations with the Palestinians over dividing Jerusalem and ceding authority over some of its holiest sites.

Vice Premier Haim Ramon made the comments as Israeli and Palestinian negotiators opened talks at a secret location in Israel over a joint document they hope to present at a U.S.-sponsored conference on Palestinian statehood.

“Wouldn’t it be the right deal today for the Palestinians, the Western world and the international community to recognize (Israel’s) annexation of … (Jewish) neighborhoods as part of Jerusalem, and for us to quit the Arab neighborhoods,” Ramon told Israel Radio.

He said talk of ceding control over holy sites in Jerusalem’s Old City, which he referred to as the “holy basin”, were premature for now.

But Ramon added: “We need to say there will be a special regime in the ‘holy basin’, which we will talk about in the future.”

Ramon’s public comments on one of the most sensitive issues in the conflict have raised speculation that he is floating trial balloons on behalf of Olmert.

As a Muslim, you know Allah, but do you know Isa, Jesus Christ, whom God sent? “And this is eternal life, that they know you the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom you have sent” (John 17:3). The Qur’an urges you to read about Isa in the Bible (Surah 5:46; 10:94-95). Why not begin with a one week Bible study? We’ll study the life of Jesus, primarily through the Gospel of Luke. Begin seeking eternal life today!

It’s Official: Terrorists Endorse Hillary in ’08

Monday, October 8th, 2007

I would think that rational people wouldn’t want to vote for someone who is the favorite of Islamic terrorist, but so-called rational people have surprised me before by not doing the rational action. I can only hope that common sense makes a reappearance before the November ’08 elections.

WASHINGTON – With presidential primaries approaching and the race for the White House heating up, Muslim terrorist leaders in the Middle East have offered their endorsement for America’s highest office, stating in a new book they hope Sen. Hillary Clinton is victorious in 2008.

“I hope Hillary is elected in order to have the occasion to carry out all the promises she is giving regarding Iraq,” stated Ala Senakreh, West Bank chief of the Al Aqsa Martyrs Brigades terrorist group.

Senakreh is one of dozens of terror leaders sounding off about American politics in the new book, “Schmoozing with Terrorists: From Hollywood to the Holy Land, Jihadists Reveal their Global Plans – to a Jew!” by WND Jerusalem bureau chief Aaron Klein.

Abu Hamed, leader of the Al Aqsa Brigades in the northern Gaza Strip, explained in “Schmoozing” Clinton’s repeated calls for a withdrawal from Iraq “proves that important leaders are understanding the situation differently and are understanding the price and the consequences of the American policy in Iraq and in the world.”

“The Iraqi resistance is succeeding,” stated Hamed. “Hillary and the Democrats call for withdrawal. Her popularity shows that the resistance is winning and that the occupation is losing. We just hope that she will go until the end and change the American policy, which is based on oppressing poor and innocent people.”

In “Schmoozing,” every terrorist leader out of dozens interviewed stated they hope a Democrat becomes president in 2008. Some terror leaders explained their endorsement of Clinton is not necessarily at the expense of other Democratic presidential candidates, whose policies are not as well known to them.

“All Americans must vote Democrat,” stated Jihad Jaara, an exiled member of the Al Aqsa Martyrs Brigades terror group and the infamous leader of the 2002 siege of Bethlehem’s Church of the Nativity.

U.K. Muslim Medical Students Refuse to Learn About Alcohol or Sexual Diseases

Monday, October 8th, 2007

More Muslim insanity in the U.K.

Muslim medical students are refusing to learn about alcohol-related illnesses and sexually-transmitted diseases because they say it goes against their religious beliefs.

And a small number are even refusing to examine patients of the opposite sex because they say it is forbidden by the Koran.

The General Medical Council and the British Medical Association both say they have heard of cases of trainee doctors having religious objections.

But they say they did not approve of them, pointing out that a doctor would not be able to qualify if they missed parts of their course.

The BMA, the professional body for doctors, said it had been notified of Muslim students who did not want to learn anything about alcohol or the effects of overconsumption.

‘They are so opposed to the consumption of it they don’t want to learn anything about it,’ a spokesman said.

And the GMC, which regulates doctors and maintains the medical register, recently brought out a paper for medical schools explaining what to do if students ask whether they could still graduate if they omitted parts of the medical curriculum.

The document makes it clear that doctors will not be able to opt out of any part of their training despite any religious objections.

Professor Peter Rubin, chairman of the GMC’s education committee, said: ‘Examples have included a refusal to see patients who are affected by diseases caused by alcohol or sexual activity, or a refusal to examine patients of a particular gender.’

But he said trainees who refused to carry out these parts of their courses would not be allowed to graduate because ‘prejudicing treatment on the grounds of patients’ gender or their responsibility for their condition would run counter to the most basic principles of ethical medical practice.’
