Noose Tightens Around Israel

imagesWill there ever be a solution to the Israel-Palestine conflict? There are deep differences between those in favour of a Palestine state and those against. The differences lie deep in history, geography, race, religion and politics. How a person views the impasse is greatly influenced by these issues. Historically, would anyone refute that Israel was once a nation living in where it is now? Jews, as a people group, have a strong historical basis for claims on the land. The case for a Palestinian state is more nebulous. There is no record to suggest that  Palestinian people group ever existed. Palestinians in modern history consist of numerous groups of people dwelling in the regions (read Wikipedia, Newswithviews.com). Palestine then could mean much of the Ottoman empire that once were the home of these people. Read the rest of this entry »

A Peaceful Religion

obama-1.siSince 9-11, the “war on terror” became the daily mantra for the Washington mafia. The blame for the 9-11 carnage was solely thrown upon the purported perpetrators whom Washington claimed were Muslim terrorists headed by Osama bin Laden. Al Qaeda became the star of the day, taking every blame for terrorist acts. Muslim related terrors continue to expand into Iraq, Libya, Egypt and Syria. All the uprisings and civil unrests can be traced to the fingerprints left behind by Washington. It was the most successful MSM bliz originated from the White House. Whether 9-11 was a Muslim terror event or an inside job is still a question mark as evidences surrounding the attack cast much doubt in the Washington story. Read the rest of this entry »

Pope’s Fratricide

pope-francis-war-ukraine.siIf you believe in universal brotherhood, that all men and women are brothers and sisters, then killing anyone is fratricide. It does not matter what race or religion one subscribes too. Otherwise, mass killings would likely fall into the category of genocide. We are losing count of the number of innocent lives being terminated by the madness conflicts of race, religion and military hegemony by powerful nations. Killing fields are ubiquitous in the Middle East (Iraq, Iran, Libya, Syria, Lebanon, Yemen, Afghanistan, Israel/Gaza (coincidentally where US has military presence) and Africa (Boko Haram, Egypt, Angola, Sudan, Somalia). It has extended into Europe currently confined primarily to Ukraine. But the worrying signs are that the bloodshed may spread. There are no signs of disengagement in these areas of conflicts. All signs point to an escalation of conflicts that may engulf the world.  Read the rest of this entry »

Beware the Beast

666Two thousand years ago, an old man by the name of John was incarcerated at the island of Patmos. In those days, Patmos was used by the Romans for political prisoners such as John. John did no crime other than being faithful to his Jesus whom he had been associated with while Jesus walked on earth. It was here that history took a major step forward. John was given a “revelation” of Jesus Himself. In that stunning series of visions, the future of the world was played out before John, leaving him stunned as frightening scenes of disasters were flashed before him. Read the rest of this entry »

Christmas – What Christmas?

vaticanABC NewsPope Francis has urged people to have greater empathy towards family and friends with problems in his Christmas Eve mass, saying the world “needs tenderness” and warmth.

“Do we have the courage to welcome with tenderness the difficulties and problems of those who are near to us?” the pontiff asked in his traditional homily delivered in St Peter’s Basilica, filled with 5,000 worshippers.

“Or do we prefer impersonal solutions, perhaps effective but devoid of the warmth of the Gospel? How much the world needs tenderness today.”

The 78-year-old Pope entered the vast basilica in a solemn procession flanked by cardinals intoning the Kalenda, a Gregorian chant proclaiming the birth of Jesus Christ.

Francis then removed a cloth from a statuette of a smiling baby Jesus that two children, from Syria and Lebanon, had carried into the sanctuary, and kissed the figure.

Headless Us

KobanePerth Now “I have seen tens, maybe hundreds, of bodies with their heads cut off. Others with just their hands or legs missing. I have seen faces with their eyes or tongues cut out — I can never forget it for as long as I live,” Amin Fajar, a 38-year-old father of four, told the Daily Mail about the incredible scene in Kobane. “They put the heads on display to scare us all.”

Vatican Gay Relatio

beforeitsnews.com

beforeitsnews.com

Vatican document: “Homosexuals have gifts and qualities to offer the Christian community: are we capable of welcoming these people, guaranteeing to them a further space in our communities? Often they wish to encounter a Church that offers them a welcoming home,” said the document, known by its Latin name “relatio”. After a two-week meeting of bishops on family issues, Catholic bishops have made a major shift with unprecedented openness to accepting cohabitation of people who are gay or unmarried couples. It is no longer a secret that there are many reports of Catholic priests who are gays and  pedophiles. Is this change a result of high level pressure from the Vatican to allow promiscuity to be let loose without restraint in the Vatican?

Migration Woes

we are the worldOver the years of human diaspora, very few country now can claim a population that is totally homogeneous. Even countries like Japan, India and China do not have a “one race” citizenry. Languages used within the country can be extremely diverse. According to Wikipedia, China has 202 living languages. Naturally, cultural and religious diversity is expected. However, many nations have stayed united even if the population composition is culturally and/or ethnically diverse.

Quran Verses to Mull Over

KoranIslam is a religion. Islamic faith is not any clandestine belief but is premised upon the teachings of the Quran. The Quran published in several languages, is opened to anyone willing to understand the teachings. Followers of Islam cannot deny what is written in it. Scholars have every opportunity to study and dissect the Quran to understand what Islam stands for. The rumblings and terror of Islamic militants claim that they are doing what they believe the Quran teaches. What we are witnessing shows no evidence to suggest that Islam promotes peace. It is disconcerting. If the Islamists claims are right (as in the Quran says so), then we are indeed facing a dire situation. We sincerely pray that they are wrong regarding these innocent killings. Certainly this deserves closer scrutiny.
