Whoa “Jihadi Dad” – Orlando Terrorist’s Father Seddique Mateen Visited State Dept. – Political Activist, Taliban Sympathizer…
Remember Amed Mohamed and the exploited islamic opportunism with 14-year-old “clock boy” bomb hoax from Irving Texas and how his father was running for political office in Sudan?
Well, apparently 29-year-old terrorist Omar Mateen (below left) comes from a similarly engaged political family and his father, Seddique Mateen (below right), was/is running for national office in Afghanistan and not happy with the government of Pakistan.
This conception entails tolerance toward the person while allowing intolerance toward beliefs. Since beliefs are abstract objects communicated through propositions in written or spoken language, they have no inherent dignity in themselves. It does them no harm or offense to disagree with them or offer a rebuttal. Disagreeing with or being intolerant of a belief, in this view, is fundamentally different from being intolerant or hateful toward the person who holds that belief. In other words, this definition is built on a clear and obvious distinction between a person and his beliefs.
Could we really manufacture “equality” in all relevant areas of life, even if we wanted to? Could we, for example, manufacture an equality of families? Rawls tellingly acknowledges that “the principle of fair opportunity can be only imperfectly carried out, at least as long as the institution of the family exists.” We might suspect, then, that a perfectly consistent Rawlsian would work tirelessly to eradicate the family as the last bastion of “unfairness.” Thus, when someone like Mark Regnerus presents evidence that certain family structures are better for children, such evidence could only work against the position of those who cite his work. Since the quality of one’s family is one of those “natural assets” that creates an unequal distribution of society’s benefits, its effect must be minimized as much as possible.
Financial writer Andy Hoffman is bullish on gold and silver. Why? Hoffman contends, “Now you have this gold bull market which, no matter how hard the cartel tries, they just can’t stop it. The institutional money is moving into gold and silver right now. . . . People are scared around the world, and I agree. I can’t see how we get through the next six months without something really, really terrible happening. . . . There is a common thread of people realizing that it is all hitting the fan right now. Frankly, the election cycle is going to make things worse. If Donald Trump wins, it’s not whether he will be good or bad, we are talking about shaking up the establishment. Donald Trump is talking about renegotiating our debt, defaulting on it.”
On global war, Hoffman says, “If you are talking about what is most likely to happen, yes, war is the answer to everything. It is the answer to all economic ills. It is the answer to threats to the status quo, threats to staying in power. It is the only way to guarantee you stay in power is to start wars.”

An open minded, civil discussion with the two men behind the movie Vaxxed. This interview is great, and oddly enough, only available thankfully to RT.com. If you are unaware of RT.com, it is actually Russia Today, which broadcasts around the world to different countries. Of course, that puts RT.com out of reach of the Big Pharma media brigade that Vaxxed experiences here in the USA.
If when covering Israel the Times can’t bring itself to do something as simple as calling a terrorist a terrorist, what does that refusal once again reveal about the paper’s mindset and agenda?
From the start, those involved stressed secrecy in order to prevent criticism from voices in the community. Vermont Refugee Resettlement Program Director Amila Merdzanovic said “I cannot emphasize enough the importance of not sharing the information… move slowly, keep it to a small circle of people, and then expand.” In an email to Louras, she stated, “if we open it up to anybody and everybody, all sorts of people will come out of the woodwork. Anti-immigrant, anti-anything.”
A Lebanese expat tells his compelling story of the change he’s seen in Germany in 19 years. All Americans should REALLY listen and act on trying to keep this from happening in America. If you don’t think it’s possible then you need to wake up ASAP!
The EU authorities have previously demonstrated that they consider so-called “Islamophobia” to constitute hate speech and racism. These new EU regulations will presumably make it even more difficult for Europeans to voice their opposition to Muslim immigration and the Islamization of their countries. American websites such as Jihad Watch or Gates of Vienna still enjoy some free speech protection from the First Amendment of the U.S. Constitution. If they had been based in the EU, they would now have run the risk of being banned outright. There is a chilling totalitarian impulse behind these censorship efforts.
In an interview with The Christian Post, Lopez explained that the decision to move on came as a result of longstanding mounting pressure from activists on and off campus.
“The type we’re most familiar with is jihad by the sword, but it is by no means the only form of jihad,” he explained. “People who are Muhajirun, people who immigrate to a foreign country for the sake of implementing Islam, receive the same reward in heaven as those who fight with the gun. It’s an implicit understanding. They know from the time they were children, if they immigrate, if they became Muhajirun, they are guaranteed the same reward as the Mujahedeen, the ones who fight with guns.”

|IRAN: Christian Prisoner on Medical Furlough
Source: Middle East Concern
Friends and family of Maryam Naghash Zargaran, a believer who has been imprisoned in Iran for almost three years, are relieved over the recent news of her temporary release so she can receive the urgent medical care she needs.
Maryam’s condition had deteriorated even more since she began a hunger strike on May 27th to protest the lack of adequate medical treatment in prison. Along with a history of heart problems, she has also been suffering from severe headaches, nausea, and pain in her ears.
Although prison authorities recognized the severity of her condition and the need for treatment, the prosecutor’s office had previously refused to allow her leave from prison for required medical care at a hospital. It has been reported that fellow prisoners in her ward at Evin prison in Tehran showed their support for Maryam by forgoing their family visits on May 29th as a form of protest.
Maryam is a believer from a Muslim background. In 2013, the young Christian woman was sentenced to four years in prison after being arrested in connection with her work at a Christian orphanage and charged with “acting against national security.” Her lawyer’s request for a retrial was refused. For other prayer alert reports, as well as informative video documentaries, go to the Iran Country Report.
We join Maryam’s friends and family in a prayer of thanksgiving that she has finally been granted leave from prison and allowed to go to hospital for proper treatment. Ask the Lord to work through this medical care, restoring her to good health and well-being. May it also be made possible for her to be freed from serving the full prison term so she can fully recover. In the interim, we pray that the authorities and other prisoners will act kindly towards Maryam and each other…and that the light of Christ will permeate every part of Evin prison.
|INDIA: Ill-Treated Believers Driven from Homes
Sources: Release International, Morningstar News
Children were among the 28 Christians who were beaten and driven from their homes twice within a two-day period. Local Hindu extremists in Katholi village had summoned four families to a public meeting — demanding that they recant their faith — but the families refused. In the first attack, six believers were badly injured and needed medical treatment. When they returned to Katholi the next day, they were subjected again to further physical assault.
The perpetrators justified the attacks by claiming their “gods were angry” that their neighbours had become Christians. After the police intervened and the assailants agreed not to attack again, the families were able to return to their homes.
Meanwhile, about 80 kilometres away in Sukma village, other Hindu extremists subjected two Christians to a two-hour “purification” ritual in which one of them was burned as fire-heated coins were forcibly placed on his tongue. He also suffered burns to his back, shoulders, knees and feet. When the two Christians still refused to deny Christ, they were fined as well.
In India’s central Chhattisgarh state, there were 49 reported incidents of organized attacks on Christians between January and April of this year alone. More about persecution in this country is available at the India Country Report.
Please pray for the peace and protection of Christians throughout Chhattisgarh state, particularly for families in the villages of Katholi and Sukma. May the governing officials in India do more to uphold the religious rights of all citizens so these faithful believers will be able to practise their faith freely. Ask the Lord to change the hearts of those who have inflicted these injuries, helping them to understand the error of their ways and, ultimately, drawing them to faith in Him.
|FINLAND: Immigrants Turn to Christianity
Source: Evangelical Focus
Over the past several months, churches in Finland have faced a surprising new experience as hundreds of Muslim immigrants arrived at their doors with questions about the Christian faith. Interest has been greatest among arrivals from Afghanistan, Iraq and Iran, reports Marja-Liisa Laihia, a specialist on immigrant issues for the Evangelical Lutheran Church.
Finland received almost 30,000 new Muslim immigrants during the widely reported influx of immigration into Europe in the fall of 2015. Since that time, one pastor who speaks Arabic as his mother tongue has baptized 18 Iraqi Muslims in the Helsinki area. He provides a baptismal course, which totals approximately 45 to 50 hours in length, and notes there are more people hoping to join the classes than he has the capacity to teach.
Due to the ravaging terror and upheaval caused by militant groups such as ISIS and Boko Haram, many Muslims are questioning Islam. Now that these immigrants are living in a foreign country where religious freedom is granted, they are able to learn more about Christianity. While some families may readily accept the conversion, others opt to disown the baptized member.
In a survey by the Christian newspaper, Uusi Tie (Finland), senior pastors were asked how many Muslim asylum seekers had been baptized among those who came to Finland in the fall of 2015. There were 128 responses and, within these churches, a total of 117 Muslims had been baptized. Although the survey focussed on the Lutheran church, for the purpose of comparison, 17 Pentecostal churches were also approached. Of the 13 churches that responded, a total of 108 Muslims had been baptized.
We rejoice over the fact that these Muslim immigrants feel free to accept Jesus Christ as their Saviour now that they are living in a new country. May they be effective witnesses to their family members and others who have not yet taken this step of faith. Intercede also for the many Christians who remain in countries where persecution is prevalent; mindful to pray for a safe passage on behalf of those who are even at this moment attempting to flee violent areas in search of refuge and religious freedom.

Why are billionaires like Carl Icahn shouting warnings of an impending economic collapse? Today on TRUNEWS Rick Wiles will be joined by special guest Terry Sacka, President of Cornerstone Asset Metals, to dissect this growing trend; the banking elites obsession with blockchain; and the tie in with NATO’s suicidal mission to bait Russia into World War 3.
Regardless of the timing, all the big players agree there is going to be another big economic crash. Financial writer David Morgan thinks the elite are fighting over how the crash is going to take place. Morgan explains, “There is infighting at the top. The central banks really don’t know what to do, and they are starting to get agitated at the top of the pyramid. . . . As things start to deteriorate more and more . . . there is an instinctive ability of the human species to preserve what they have. There is infighting at the top. These people know this isn’t working, and there may be some really interesting discussions going on behind closed doors about what they really can do. The answer is they really can’t do much.”
On the U.S debt clock showing gold being priced thousands of dollars more than it is priced in the markets, and also silver priced hundreds of dollars higher, Morgan says, “I think it is $812 silver and gold $7,300. What that is is year-over-year increases in M2 money supply and yielding production of silver and gold in ounces. Or, you could say it’s the year-over-year production in ounces . . . and it’s an arithmetic problem. It’s dollars per ounce mined. As to why they are doing this, I don’t know, but I will take a stab at it. Maybe it is to get this out in the public where few are awake and aware. It’s obviously showing the gold/silver ratio is out of whack. . . . Both silver and gold are way undervalued.”
In closing, Morgan, who is also an expert in gold and silver, says, “Real wealth is what we can physically touch, and the market is going to reprice all of that. Gold and silver are a small subset of real wealth because that is physical money. If you look at farmland, skyscrapers, all the roads, all the minerals in the ground, oil and everything else, that’s the real wealth. What you do in a bond collapse is you reprice everything.”

One of an Attorney General’s fundamental duties is to defend laws passed by Congress against constitutional challenges – even when those challenges might have merit. But Attorney General Loretta Lynch is refusing to do so, in a challenge by a former Veterans Affairs director suing to get her job back after she committed a crime. Lynch argues that a statutory provision designed to prevent incompetent and criminal federal employees from suing for reinstatement is itself a violation of the Constitution.
In December of 2015, Ben Swann became the first journalist to receive the CDC Whistleblower documents provided by Dr. William Thompson to Congress in 2014.

Ms. Hirsi Ali warns against use of the words “extreme” and “radical” to describe as peripheral an ideology which, she argues, is in fact quite prevalent in Muslim communities around the globe, and which leads easily to violence — whether in the form of female genital mutilation or honor killings or wife-beating or suicide bombings. She views the reliance on those words as self-delusion, a soothing, self-administered palliative whose effect is to mask evidence that violence is the largely natural extension of fundamentalist values sternly dictated and widely embraced in Muslim communities — values that encourage harsh treatment of women and strict, even brutal, punishment of non-believers.

“At some point Donald Trump needs to take responsibility for the irresponsible behavior of his campaign.” San Jose, California Mayor Sam Liccardo.
With those words, violence against supporters of Donald Trump and the candidate himself has been justified and in fact encouraged by the Mayor of California’s third largest city, which is the titular capitol of the Silicon Valley.
Trump supporters coming out of a rally, in the city made famous in the 1960s by Dionne Warwick, were attacked, punched, egged and abused while the San Jose police department largely stood and watched, perhaps having gotten word in advance to not intervene on behalf of the law-abiding supporters of the presumptive GOP nominee.
Some of the largely Hispanic mob of protesters waved signs saying things like, “Trump, this is Mexico. You are not welcome on native/Mexican soil,” demonstrating the extent and reach of the la raza (the race) movement in states such as California.
BREXIT THE MOVIE spells out the danger of staying part of the EU. Is it safe to give a remote government beyond our control the power to make laws? Is it safe to tie ourselves to countries which are close to financial ruin, drifting towards scary political extremism, and suffering long-term, self-inflicted economic decline?
BREXIT THE MOVIE shows a side of the EU they don’t want us to see: the sprawling self-serving bureaucracy, the political cynicism, the lack of accountability, the perks, the waste, the cronyism, the corruption.
BREXIT THE MOVIE cuts through the patronizing intellectualism of the noble, higher goals of ‘Project Europe’, to reveal the self-interestedness of the political-bureaucratic class which runs and benefits from the EU.
BREXIT THE MOVIE highlights the danger of becoming a prisoner in an insular, backward-looking Fortress Europe. And it explores the exciting opportunities that open up to us when we look beyond the narrow confines of the EU.
BREXIT THE MOVIE looks to the future, arguing forcefully and persuasively that it is safer and wiser to live in a country which is free, independent, self-governing, confident and global.

|UGANDA: Children Narrowly Escape Death
Source: Morningstar News
Early in the morning of May 8th, 34-year-old Awali Kakaire killed his wife, Mariam Nakirya, for embracing Christianity. The mother of five was only 30 years old. Awali began to suspect his wife was a Christian a month prior to the incident, after the local imam questioned him as to why his wife and children had not been attending mosque prayers, and the reason his children had not been attending the Islamic school. As Awali frequently travelled for business, sometimes for the duration of a month at a time, the rest of the family was able to attend church on Sundays.
On May 8th, after his Islamic cleansing ritual, Awali instructed his wife to join him for morning Islamic prayers. “Our mother refused, and our father started strangling her as she cried for help,” one son recalls. Awali left the house after killing her, returning two hours later. He then forced his five children, ages 5 to 12, into a hole that he had dug in a nearby garden.
“We resisted and began screaming,” the son further explains. “Neighbours arrived immediately, but he had already dumped us into the hole he had dug,” Police arrived at the scene equipped with tear gas, guns and batons in case there were added ramifications while dealing with the gathered crowd.
Mariam had come to Christ in August of 2015, after a series of visits from a door-to-door evangelist. Two of her children are now staying with their grandmother, and three with their uncle. “The children are still traumatized and crying for their mother,” adds the concerned 80-year-old grandmother.
Let us join together in prayer for these five traumatized children who are suffering the tragic loss of their mother. May our Lord Jesus, whom they have come to know while attending church, fill their hearts with great peace, comfort and hope. May these young ones continue in the footsteps of their mother who faithfully followed Him until the very end. Also intercede for their father in hopes that he, too, will discover God’s forgiveness and salvation, in addition to the peace that comes when personally acknowledging His Son Jesus as Saviour.
|SUDAN: Unlawful Detainment of Church Leaders
Sources: World Watch Monitor, Middle East Concern
Five months since his initial detention, a local pastor has been re-arrested by Sudan’s intelligence agency. Rev. Kuwa Shamal joins at least two more Christian leaders in prison, awaiting charges that could potentially carry the death penalty. He was re-arrested on May 24th by members of the National Intelligence and Security Services (NISS) in Khartoum.
Together with fellow Sudan Church of Christ leader, Rev. Hassan Taour, and a Christian convert from Darfur identified as Abdulmonem Abdumawla, the newly jailed pastor is expected to face serious charges including espionage and undermining state security. Rev. Kuwa, who serves as the church’s head of missions, was first detained for three days on December 18th. He later had to report daily to the NISS for long periods of time. For no obvious reason, the routine was lifted in mid-January but then re-imposed a month later. (To review a previously posted report, go to this page.)
This is not the first time Khartoum has detained Christians unlawfully, failing to prove beforehand the serious charges brought against them later in the courts. In the summer of 2015, Khartoum officials released two South Sudanese pastors who were accused of “spying.” More details on this case are available here.
According to the 2016 Open Doors’ World Watch List, Sudan is ranked 8th in a list of 50 countries where Christians are under the most pressure. The predominantly Muslim country has a rating of “extreme” and, for the past two years, has remained among the top 10 offenders. For additional information on persecution in Sudan, visit our Sudan Country Report.
Please intercede for these incarcerated Christians in Sudan, praying that they will remain strong in their faith — not wavering in their courageous stand — during this time of trial. May the Lord deliver them, granting even greater opportunities to spread the good news of His unfailing love and salvation in this spiritually oppressed part of the world. To God be the praise and glory for what He is going to accomplish through the lives and witness of these faithful believers.
|VIETNAM: Human Rights Campaigner Freed!
Source: The Guardian
Human rights campaigner Father Thaddeus Nguyen Van Ly, who was jailed by Vietnamese authorities, was recently released. Thankfully, after having spent most of the past two decades in detention due to his relentless pursuit of democracy and religious freedom, the elderly church leader (born August 31, 1947) was finally released from a prison in central Hue province after his fourth stint behind bars.
During long periods of incarceration, sometimes in solitary confinement, he suffered numerous health problems, including strokes and partial paralysis. His long-awaited release took place three months before the end of an eight-year prison sentence for “anti-state propaganda,” which comes under a section of the criminal code that human rights groups say is vaguely worded and used to punish outspoken critics.
The human rights activist has been on the receiving end of some of the country’s harshest verdicts, stemming from his opposition to the political monopoly of the Communist party and his stand against the government confiscation of church property. Over the years, he set up a pro-democracy movement, campaigning for democracy and freedom of speech. You can review a previous report on his case by going to this page.
