U.K. Blogger “Lionheart” To Be Arrested on Charges of “Stirring up Racial Hatred”

Monday, January 7th, 2008

Dr. Chesler gave us a head’s up on the plight of U.K. blogger “Lionheart”. We are still trying to confirm the details and authenticity of his situation. If you know more about this, please contact us.

British police have been charged with arresting me!

I am currently out of the Country and on my return home to England I am going to be arrested by British detectives on suspicion of Stirring up Racial Hatred by displaying written material” contrary to sections 18(1) and 27(3) of the Public Order Act 1986.

This charge if found guilty carries a lengthy prison sentence, more than what most paedophiles and rapists receive, and all for writing words of truth about the barbarity that is living in the midst of our children, which threatens the very future of our Country.

The cultural weapon in the hands of the modern Jihad within Great Britain, silencing the opposition using our own laws against us – The Dumb Filthy Kaffir’s as the Moslem would say to his children behind closed doors.

What has become of my homeland, the land my forefathers fought and died for on the battlefields of the world when one of their children is forced into the position of facing years in prison for standing up for what is right and just within British society.

At least my words of truth have obviously now reached people’s eyes and ears, with the powers that be now intent on silencing me – Third World Tyranny in a supposed 21st Century democracy!

I wonder if the Moslem peer Lord Ahmed was one of the people behind trying to silence me, I did wonder about why he crashed his car and nearly killed himself over Christmas, let that be a lesson to you – 1 Chronicles 16:22 Saying, “Do not touch My anointed ones, And do My prophets no harm.”

How dare any Moslem try and silence the truth from being told by an Englishman about the Islamic enemy in our midst within the British homeland.

Who have I killed, who have I threatened to kill? No one, all I have done is written about my reality on a computer screen, and now I face going to prison in my own country for standing up for myself and others.

What has happened to those who threatened my life or who have killed my friends – NOTHING – This is British justice in the 21st Century – Shove your British Labour justice because it is worthless to the Englishman whose country this is, whose country you have destroyed.

Who blew up trains and buses on 7/7, who tried blowing up cars in London and Glasgow, who is seeking to detonate a dirty bomb upon the streets of Great Britain and who believes that non-Islamic territory is to be viewed as ‘the house of war and must be converted at all costs’, I dont think you will find it is me, but I have no problem with educating others to the threat, the threat that this ‘Loony Labour Government’ is pretending is not real – The former Home Secretary knew what he was talking about.

How dare those power hungry fools seek to silence me or anyone else like me from speaking the truth for the sake of our children, grandchildren and the future of our homeland, who do they think they are, they are nothing more than mere men like the rest of us, just in positions of power over us that they totally abuse against us, look at the treason that has happened within Brussels by Tony Blair and Gordon Brown, handing over the Sovereignty of our Nation into foreign hands – Treason is the only word for it yet no one is arresting them, no they are arresting me for writing a few words of truth on a blog.

Update:
By the way, I do not agree with Lionheart’s politics. But none the less, he should be allowed freedom of speech.

“The Logic and Reason of ‘Free Thought'” by Jack Kinsella

Monday, January 7th, 2008

One of the arguments most often advanced against Christianity and the existence of God is that such a belief is not ‘rational’. In fact, atheists and secular humanists are fond of calling themselves ‘free thinkers’ — wearing that label as a pejorative against those of faith, who, by implication are not.

The word “rational” means, “consistent with, or based on or using reason or logic.” So, how rational is it to believe in a Creator God?

Where did energy, time, matter and the dimensions in which we live originate? In theory, even a void must have an origin.

Rational thinkers postulate that the universe came into being via the “Big Bang” — that is, the universe simply exploded into existence by itself at some point in the unknowably distant past.

So let’s examine the idea rationally. There is no scientific explanation for the creation of energy, matter, etc., so that leaves but one seemingly logical conclusion.

If these things have no point of origin, yet they are, then logically, they must have always existed. But that doesn’t work, since everything in the universe has a starting point.

What was there before the Big Bang caused the universe to expand into it? Was there an ‘it’ for the universe to expand into.

Where did ‘it’ go? Was it a void before the Big Bang? Where did the void come from? What made the universe explode into existence? What was it before it exploded? And who made the void in the first place?

It is a law of physics that energy must be created — it simply cannot spring into existence on its own. THAT would take a ‘miracle’ and free thinkers deny miracles are possible.

But the laws concerning energy, mass, time, distance, etc. all pre-exist humanity, and the laws of scientific conservation say that they cannot be broken. That is what we call them the “laws” of physics.

But at some time in history, they all had to be broken at least once in order to come into existence. But that is impossible, since it would require a miracle.

But the fact that ANYTHING exists means, by definition, that a miraculous suspension of the prime laws governing the universe had to take place first.

Is your head spinning yet? This is what ‘free thinkers’ call ‘rational’.

Then there is the scientific problem with the creation of life. Science has never been able to create life out of non-life.

It takes life to create life, even in a test tube, a Petrie dish or a laboratory cloning experiment.

Rationally speaking, that leaves only one of two conclusions.

After all, if the most brilliant scientific minds on the planet can’t force something to happen that occurs randomly and easily, without either human direction or resources, they are either stupid and incompetent, or it must be impossible.

If it is impossible, then it would require a miracle, that is, a suspension of the laws of the universe, for life to exist. Yet, irrationally, it does.

Even if a scientist were able to somehow create life out of non-life, it would still require the assistance of a living scientist.

———-

Finally, what does applying logic and reason tell us about the Bible?

No other Book in history has been read more times, debated more thoroughly, translated into more languages, touched more lives or remained more relevant to the present,.

Moses compiled the first five books of the Bible, (the Pentateuch) fifteen hundred years before Christ. The last book of Scripture, the Book of the Revelation, was closed and sealed before the turn of the 1st century.

In all the centuries of its existence, despite constant and unrelenting attack through the ages, not one single word, not one point of geography, history, science, medicine or other fact has ever been proved wrong.

And it is as relevant today as it was when it was compiled. There is no book in human history that even comes close.

Logic and reason suggest but two possible explanations. The first is that it is a book of myths. The second is that it is the inspired Word of God.

To accept the first conclusion, one must reason that forty men of different backgrounds and different periods of history, kings, shepherds and drifters, without contact with one another, wrote a total of sixty-six different books, all of which flow together as a single narrative, from the perspective of God, “telling the end from the beginning and from the ancient times the things that are not yet done.” (Isaiah 46:11)

Further, applying logic and reason, one must conclude that those books, which when assembled, became the greatest best seller of all time, to the exclusion of all other books every printed in all human history, are the product of random human effort.

It seems that in order to reconcile logic and reason with ‘free thought’ the first step involves discarding all the rules that dictate their use.

Only one conclusion can be possible. Atheism, as it applies to reason and logic, doesn’t describe a person who believes in nothing. It describes a person who can believe in anything.

To reach any other conclusion would be irrational.

Clinton Argues She is More Pro-Abortion than Obama

Monday, January 7th, 2008

When did it become a good thing to be in favor of killing innocent babies?

Democrat Hillary Rodham Clinton criticizes rival Barack Obama’s record on abortion rights in a mailing sent to New Hampshire voters.

The mailer says that seven times during his time in the Illinois state Senate, Obama declined to take a position on abortion bills, while Clinton has been a defender of abortion rights.

During his eight years in the legislature, Obama cast a number of votes on abortion and received a 100 percent rating from the Illinois Planned Parenthood Council for his support of abortion rights, family planning services and health insurance coverage for female contraceptives. He voted against requiring medical care for aborted babies who survive, a vote that especially riled abortion opponents.

He also joined other state Democrats in voting present on some bills.

During the Iowa campaign, the Clinton campaign criticized Obama’s position on health care in Iowa. But she is taking a different approach in New Hampshire.

“A woman’s right to choose,” the mailing says on the front, then flips to the back, “demands a leader who will stand up and protect it.”

It says Clinton has a record of fighting “far-right Republicans” to defend abortion rights, while Obama has been “unwilling to take a stand on choice.”

“Seven times he had the opportunity to stand up against Republican anti-choice legislation in the Illinois state Senate,” it says. “Seven times he voted present – not yes or no, but present. Being there is not enough to protect choice.

“The Story is Bigger Than an Honor Murder in Dallas or What Happens in Dallas Stays in Dallas; Who Knew?” by Dr. Phyllis Chesler

Monday, January 7th, 2008

The “story” is now also about the mainstream national media’s utter failure to cover the Dallas-based honor murders of two teenager sisters, Sarah and Amina Said—and it is also about their father Abdul, an Egyptian-born taxi driver, who has somewhat miraculously managed to avoid capture for five full days. As of this writing, he has still not been found.

Is there connection between these two stories? I fear there might be, at least in this sense: If Abdul Said’s photo had been plastered all across our television screens and on the pages of our morning newspapers maybe—just maybe—someone might have recognized him or maybe—just maybe—someone at a mosque might have been shamed by this dishonorable act and encouraged to mount a Muslim religious campaign to find and turn him over to the police.

Talk about whistling Dixie!

Where is Abdul? Did he shoot himself? If so, where’s the corpse? Did he flee the country after a well-planned murder? If so, what plane did he board and where did he go? What kind of powerful friends might a taxi driver have? Is he really only a taxi driver? Has he taken shelter in a mosque?

I have no inside information but I assume that the police are asking all these questions. Authorities have offered a $10,000.00 reward for Abdul Said.

As I’ve previously noted, on January 3rd, the New York Times did cover a daughter’s murder in Chicago—but wouldn’t ya know, the murder was committed by a drunken and abusive Hindu father which subliminally “proves” that non-Muslim fathers also kill their pregnant daughters, sons-in-law and grandchildren. So there!

It’s not as if the mainstream media is quiet about Muslim Matters. In fact, the January 5th-6th issue of the New York Times Book Review is entirely devoted to Islam. Entirely. Completely. The lead “essay,” (to be distinguished from three non-opener essays and the twelve book reviews), is a sterling example of the subtle disinformation campaign being waged by the overly glamorized Tariq Ramadan and is titled “Reading the Koran.” Is this title a play on or a playful admonition towards Azar Nafisi’s best-seller Reading Lolita in Teheran—a far more comprehensible and literary piece of writing but one which is highly critical of Islamist Iran?

And just today, the Paper of Record has a piece about domestic violence in the Muslim communities but guess what the headline reads? “Abused Muslim Women in U.S. Gain Advocates. Sympathetic Clerics Ally With Activists.” All’s well, Islam is not the problem. Indeed, according to this article, one brave mullah (truly, peace be upon him) and some religious Muslims are “saving” abused Muslim women—not only from murderously violent Muslim men—but also from the female staff at domestic violence shelters (read: secularist feminists) who are too spooked by hijab and hallel eating requirements to be of much use. Or perhaps their modern ways spook abused Muslim women.

I am absolutely honored to be among the many internet bloggers and local Dallas media who broke this story on January 2nd and who have continued to write about it ever since. Let’s hear it for those who made the first two pages of Google which cites nearly 4000 such references: Pamela Geller at Atlas Shrugs, Ron Dreher, at Crunchy Con; Robert Stacy McCain at the Washington Times in “Fishwrap,” (and who called it to my attention), Dymphna at Gates of Vienna, Robert Spencer at JihadWatch, LindaSog, Ace of Spades, Gateway Pundit, Hot Air, Scared Monkeys, NationalReview online (which reprinted the local Dallas coverage), Cheat-Seeking Missiles, Michelle Malkin, Debbie Shlussel—and of course , let’s hear it for the local Dallas media who have informed us of the following details:.

Earlier today, the girls had two funerals: one was a large Christian Baptist-style funeral (!) at which a Catholic priest presided and the second took place in a mosque. (Is Mrs. Said a convert to Islam from Christianity or did teenage schoolmates wish to be consoled by a Christian service?) Mrs. Said and her teenage son have gone into hiding. The family was, allegedly, plagued by domestic violence. The deceased teenagers, (may Sarah and Amina rest in peace), had both been very smart and also afraid of their father. They had intellectual and professional ambitions and they had non-Muslim boyfriends. This is what passes for a capital offense in many Muslim families.

Yes, I wrote “many” and I mean “many.”

Only a few honor murders need take place in order to effectively intimidate and humble an entire generation and population of Muslim women. Honor murderers might be doing the “dirty” work for all Islam.

This might be one reason why Muslim leaders do not step forward to denounce honor murders and other acts of terrorism towards women and children. They fear they would be targeted by Islamist terrorists for doing so—but perhaps they also fear losing the “home court” advantage, so to speak. All Muslim tyrants—Osama bin Laden, taxi-drivers in Dallas—profit both psychologically and economically when women are willing slaves.

Neither funeral mentioned that the girls had been honor-murdered nor did the Dallas media initially focus on this as an honor murder. The liberal mainstream media did not cover the murders at all—only the conservative-leaning blog media did (as blogger Israel Matzav noted on Cheat-Seeking Missiles. )

Okay: I challenge the Muslim cleric who is heroized in the New York Times, Imam Muhammed Magid, of Falls Church Virginia, to take on honor murders as well as domestic violence.

And, while I’m at it, I challenge the mainstream media to cover the Dallas honor murders and to name them as such.

A girl can always dream. It might be in the funny mainstream papers tommorrow.

Bishop: Extremism Creating ‘No-Go’ Areas for Non-Muslims in Britain

Monday, January 7th, 2008

There is nothing about Islam that is “moderate”. If there are any of these so-called “moderate” Muslims out there, they are cowled and living in fear of retributions from the so-called “radical” (which I call “main-stream”) Muslims. The “moderates” cannot express themselves for fear of being killed by the “radicals”.
As the U.K. continues down the road of becoming an Islamic dictatorship, a a Pakistani-born Church of England bishop is pointing out that their are places in the U.K. where the dhimmi (all of us who are Muslims) are not welcome. Not only are we not welcome, we may be taking our lives into our hands by attempting to enter this areas.
As I’ve asked many times before, is the world ever going to wake up to the danger Islam is to all of us?

LONDON — Islamic extremism in Britain has created communities that are “no-go areas” for non-Muslims, a Pakistani-born Church of England bishop said in The Sunday Telegraph.

Michael Nazir-Ali, the bishop of Rochester, told the newspaper that Britain’s policies of multiculturalism have created separate Muslim communities that fail to integrate into mainstream society.

“There has been a worldwide resurgence of the ideology of Islamic extremism. One of the results of this has been to further alienate the young from the nation in which they were growing up and also to turn already separate communities into `no-go’ areas where adherence to this ideology has become a mark of acceptability,” said Nazir-Ali.

“Those of a different faith or race may find it difficult to live or work there because of hostility to them,” he said.

A British Muslim leader criticized Nazir-Ali’s comments.

“It’s irresponsible for a man of his position to make these comments,” Imam Ibrahim Mogra of the Muslim Council of Britain said in comments published by The Sunday Telegraph. “He should accept that Britain is a multicultural society in which we are free to follow our religion at the same time as being extremely proud to be British. We wouldn’t allow ‘no-go’ areas to happen.

Nazir-Ali did not identify any such “no-go areas” in Britain, a predominantly Christian country with a Muslim population of about 1.6 million, many of whom live in northern England.

The majority of Britons are members of the Anglican Church of England, the country’s officially established Christian church.

Dallas Honor Killing – The Victims

Monday, January 7th, 2008

Many of us in the Blogsphere are trying to keep this story in the forefront. It is amazing to me to there is almost no coverage of Texas’ own Muslim honor killing. If it wasn’t for the work of bloggers like Dr. Phylis Chesler, Robert Spencer and Michelle Malkin, this story would have dropped completely out of the news. I posted about this last Monday, and to date, there is barely a stir in the media about this. You will only find limited articles about it if you Google it. It has completely fallen off the pages of the major news outlets.

As I usually try to do, I am including photos of the victims. I want you to see the faces of the current victims of Islam. Take a look at how Islam, functioning in a free country, right here in the United States, has once again cowled the supposed “insubordination” of it’s women and young people, using it’s standard mode of operation; death.

Said Sisters

These beautiful young ladies were killed by their very own father. Their only sin was wanting to live full lives, without the restraint of Islam. Look at them and try to understand what their last moments on this Earth were like.

Said Sisters

I posted this comment over on Dr. Chesler’s blog, but I want to repeat this experience to you:
“Not long ago, I visited with a Muslim lady at a local pizzeria. Well, “visited” doesn’t really sum up our brief clandestine conversation.
Let me elaborate:
The lady in question had a black eye. A real shiner.
I sat down behind her and speaking softly, I said “Ma’am, this is the United States. You don’t have to let him beat you like that”.
And she responded to me, her English perfect, but her voice quavering in fear. “Please, don’t talk to me. If my husband sees you talking to me he’ll hit me harder.”
I will never forget this exchange. I do not know who this lady is. I don’t frequent this pizzeria often, so our paths have not crossed since then. I do not know if she has suffered more beatings. I pray that she has not.
Quran, 4:34 Says:
‘Men are the maintainers of women because Allah has made some of them to excel others and because they spend out of their property; the good women are therefore obedient, guarding the unseen as Allah has guarded; and (as to) those on whose part you fear desertion, admonish them, and leave them alone in their sleeping places and beat them; then if they obey you, do not seek a way against them; surely Allah is High, Great.’

Try to understand the threat Islam is to all of us. This religion that won’t even protect it’s own children, is a religion who will think nothing of killing you.

One last thought. I suspect that their dad, Yaser Abdel Said, is being harbored in a mosque. It will be interesting to see if I am correct. If you see him, please contact authorities immediately.

Pluming and the Mercy of the Lord

Monday, January 7th, 2008

Some of you might remember that on New Year’s Day, I mentioned that we had some pluming problems.
Well, with everything in my life, I can see the Lord’s mercy.
I am not a plummer. I’m pretty handy, but that only goes so far. Let me recap…
On New Year’s Day, we had a hot water pipe burst in the wall above our family room and stair well. It came through the wall of the family room and poured through the ceiling of our dinning room.
We got the water shut off and inspected the situation. Since it was a holiday and I couldn’t afford a plummer anyway, I bought about $20 in parts and put a temporary fix on the pipe.
Here’s where the mercy part comes in.
We have a home warranty policy on the appliances in the house. This is how it works:
We have an appliance break down. We call them and a day or so later, they come out to fix it. We are only responsible for the trip charge ($55).
Well, I happen to remember that I had seen pluming on the list of covered items as well. I dug out the contract, and low and behold, it was there. So I scheduled a plummer to come out and fix the pipe for good.
But it gets better…
Last summer we had problems with our microwave. Lots of problems. It took them numerous trips to get it right. After I pointed out to them (the warranty company) how long it taken, they sent us a coupon for the amount of the trip charge ($55) for our next service. Guess what? Our next service just happened to be a burst hot water pipe.
So, in a nutshell, we got a major pluming repair and it didn’t cost us a dime.
God’s Mercy!
Last Friday, we met with the insurance adjusters. We will be able to get the sheetrock repaired/replaced and the carpet replaced. All we have to do is come up with our deductible ($1,000). That will be hard, and will take several months or so to get, but once we have it, that will be all that this major problem will cost us.
God’s Mercy!
We need your continued prayers and support. But never forget that God really is in control. no matter how much the world tries to convince us otherwise.
God Bless!!
