The only thing Muslims fear is 'Interfaith
as it will lead to the end of jihad against the infidels.
Love and Islam have not mixed in the
"The resolution of jihad, is to address the atrocities of the past, in the light of an objective history".
Few people realize that China operates on only one time zone, Beijing Time. Actually in reality China has 5 time zones thereby making some regions out by 2 hrs from real time.
China is trying to root out gender abortions which have no medical purpose. They target a natural selection of 105 boys to 100 girl births. 2008 was 120 boys to 100 girls, and 2009 was 119 boys to 100 girl births.
Israel leaves Lebanon. When we think of Jews we think of Israel but this is not true:
The United States has 5,621,000 Jews
Israel has 3,951,000 Jews
Russia has 951,000 Jews
France has 591,000 Jews
Argentina has 490,000 Jews
Canada has 403,000 Jews
Brazil has 357,000 Jews
Britain has 302,000 Jews
Palestine has 273,000 Jews
Ukraine has 220,000 Jews.
It is noteworthy that Jews and Palestinians are so closely related as to be genetically indistinguishable.
Austronesian the language of the Philippines and Indonesia with a 250,000 speakers was spread by seafarers from Hawaii to Madagascar in the form of Formosan and Malayo-Polynesian.,
Shortage of drinking water is becoming a major environmental issue of the 21 century. Those countries at greatest risk of absolute drinking water scarcity are northern China, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Iraq, Egypt, and Tunisia. Water scarcity already affect econometric development in Poland, Singapore and parts of USA.
The credo of the Roman Catholic Church for its followers has been the three R's, Recognition of sin, Repentance of sin and Restitution for sin, but not for the institutional Church. Pope John Paul II (1978-2005) proclaimed this year as the Jubilee Year of justice and truth. He has a long-standing promise to offer a sweeping, unprecedented apology for wrongs committed by Roman Catholics during the past millennium. The apology should be understood as an act of courage and humility in recognizing the wrongs done by those who have borne or bear the name of Christians. The Pope asked for forgiveness of all the sins of commission and omission committed by the Church, especially for use of violence that some have committed in the service of truth, and for attitudes of contempt towards other cultures and towards followers of other religious traditions. Forgiveness for the treatment of women who have all too often been humiliated and marginalized. Religion has been marked by intolerance, superstition, complicity, unjust powers and the denial of the dignity and freedom of conscience. Joseph Cardinal Ratzinger said, "Men of the Church, in the name of faith and morals, have sometimes used methods not in keeping with the Gospels". Pope John Paul (1978-2005) described his actions as an attempt to ‘purify the memory’ of a sad history of hate, rivalry, intolerance and omission. Specifically mentioned is the hatred towards the weakest members of society, the Roma (Gypsies). Religious hatred towards others is evident world wide. This admission towards the Roma is to highlight this injustice. Also mentioned are lapses by Catholics regarding abortion, mistreatment of children (spanking) and those who abuse the promise of biotechnology?
Some senior officials of the Vatican believe the Pope has lost control. Opus Dei, the hard-line right-wing faction, has seized control of the last three key Vatican Departments; the section responsible for making saints, the congregation that appoints bishops as well as the powerful press office. Officials paint a bleak picture of life in the curia, as the bureaucracy turns rotten with malevolent gossip, discrimination and contempt. One Jesuit theologian has accused the Pope of ‘rank heresy’ because the Pope said the revelation of Christ was ‘definitive and complete”. The powerful Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, alias the Congregation for the Inquisition, headed by Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger as the guardian of Church orthodoxy, is waging war against the liberal Catholic theologians. Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger is destroying decades of inter-faith bridge building. Declaration Dominus Iesus, to be published this year, states that other Christian Churches are not proper churches because they suffer from defects, non-Christian religions are gravely deficient and their rituals constitute an obstacle to salvation. Pope John Paul (1978-2005) says he approves this document. The document goes on to say that some churches (Eastern Orthodox) are true 'particular' churches because they preserved the apostolic succession of bishops from the time of the apostles. It is noteworthy that the Roman church does not/cannot trace its origin to the apostles but only to the time of the apostles. In December, after many months of criticism from the other religious communities, the Pope recants his earlier statement. He previously said the only way to heaven is through the Roman Catholic Church and he now says heaven is open to all, as long as they are good people. The Pope said: “all of the just on Earth, including those who ignore Christ and his Church”, were “called upon to build the Kingdom of God”. This ruling reverts back to the teachings of the Second Vatican Council nearly 40 years ago, but is in disagreement with the historic beliefs of the church.
It is estimated that 26 million people world wide are still classified as slaves. This does not include political prisoners in China, North Korea or Vietnam.
January 18: China started its own search engine called baidu 百度 to compete with Google and by 2010 had control of 70% of the Chinese market.
July: A Federal judge approved a historic $1.25 billion U.S. funds settlement against Swiss banks and 600,000 Holocaust survivors, including several hundred Canadians, who alleged that the banks hoarded away money deposited by Holocaust victims. The Swiss banks' action was classified as the greatest robbery in history. It is noteworthy that a class action is being developed against the Vatican for World War II atrocities. It is unfortunate that the only method to make churches repent of their sins is to start class action suites against them. It is also noteworthy that the philosophy of the King, Church and Government being above the law (infallibility belief) is the basis of many of our cultural evils. The failure of our legal system to become a justice system is because of this cultural fallacy.
September: Pope John Paul II (1978-2005) has advanced two of his predecessors toward sainthood: Pius IX and John XXIII. John Pius IX (1846-1878), alias Ancona Mastai-Ferretti, a noble born Italian, called the ‘Last King Pope’, is remembered as the longest papacy. He who confined Jews to Rome’s ghetto, kidnapped a Jewish boy (Edgardo Mortara) making him Roman Catholic, describing Jews as dogs and declaring that there are too many of these dogs present in Rome. Some say his reign was a disaster. Pope John XXII (1958-1963) alias Angelo Giuseppe Roncalli, a peasant farmer, by contrast is known simply as ‘The Good Pope’.
The inclusion of the bitterly protested advancement of John Pius, toward sainthood, is deemed necessary to protect the political underpinnings of papal infallibility.
November: The Dutch legalize mercy killing and doctor assisted suicide (euthanasia). This legalizes a, 26-year-old, common practice in that country. Some critics say it marks the spiritual breakdown of the nation. Currently 2/3 of doctor-assisted deaths are not reported and others fear that patients may have been murdered without their consent under the old system. Reported cases have reached as high as 3,500 per year making an estimated total of 10,500 deaths per year. It is known that one in every five terminations of life by a doctor, which is 2,100 deaths per year, does not have the patient’s explicit permission and is therefore murder by another name.
A significant discovery of bone fragments dating to about 1 A.D. are likely Essene but they caused an archaeological religious battle. The bones were reburied because Rabbinical authority in Israeli forbids the digging up of Jewish graves as the findings might contradict conventional religious beliefs.
The Mutawna'in a state-sanctioned Religious Police in Saudi Arabia is believed to have started about this time and has imposed a reign of terror in Saudi Arabian Society. Only Wahhabi Muslims religion is to be practiced, all other religions are prohibited. Shi'a Muslims are hardest hit but are still allowed to travel to other countries to practice their religion.
From 1981 to 2001 the Aids epidemic has killed 20 million people. This exceeds the Bubonic Plague that killed 12 million in India from 1896-1948 and is rapidly approaching the 1918 American flu of 21.6 million people. The worst epidemic was the Black Death 1347-51 which killed 75 million people. Currently 42 million people world wide have HIV/AIDS and this is expected to top 75 million by 2010.
The United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on climate change found no systematic changes in the frequency of tornadoes, thunder days, or hail events in areas where enough data are available for analysis. Madhav Knandekar, climatologic who studies weather patterns in Canada's Prairie Provinces for Alberta Environment, found that the evidence just doesn't back up the 'Panic-mongering'. This is true whether its rain, snow, drought, flood, extreme heat, extreme cold, thunderstorms, tornadoes, hail storms, high winds, blizzards or ice storms.
Some 3 billion metric tons of dust are lofted into the earths atmosphere each year and circumnavigate the earth in a matter of weeks. The dust climbs as high as 15,000 feet and contains mercury, bacteria, viruses, soot, acids, radioactive isotopes and pesticides from Asia and Africa to North America. The effect on global climate, weather and human health is little understood. Even swarms of grasshoppers have survived the trans-Atlantic trip in African dust clouds. World wide dust storms have been increasing.
We like to vision ourselves as being modern and socially advanced. Are you aware that 27 million people still live as slaves throughout the world this year? We are not only speaking of third world countries. Did you know that the list of countries that have more than 100 known slaves include: Canada, United States, France, Germany, United Kingdom and Spain?
Internet users world wide are estimated as:
1995 - 16 million users
1998 - 160 million users
2001 - 528 million users
January 22: The American President Bush established his first goal:
“To work toward a day when every child is welcomed in life and protected in law”.
“To build a culture of life, affirming that every person, at every stage and season of life, is created equal in God’s image.” He said his first act will be to remove funding for abortions.
April: The world is again awakened to the reality that slave trade of young girls and boys is still being practiced, not only in Asia, but also Adjame and Zanzibar Africa.
April 1: Yugoslavian President Slobodan Milosovic, b-1941 is arrested for war crimes. It is noteworthy that his parents an Orthodox Priest and a teacher both committed suicide as did an uncle. It is also noteworthy that Bosnia-Herzegovina is 40% Muslim, 30% Serbs and 18% Croats. Milosovic's goal was to create a Serb-dominated Yugoslavia, with himself as supreme leader. He ordered the Serb army to drive Muslims from the country thereby purifying Bosnia. The Muslims were subjected to mass rape, confinement in concentration camps and genocide. Ethnic cleaning killed 2,000 and drove 400,000 from their homes. Many Serbs considers the criminals as heroes.
May: In Greece, Pope John Paul II (1978-2005) issued a sweeping apology for Roman Catholic Church's "sins of action and omission", including the sacking, in 1204, of Constantinople, against the 200 million Orthodox Christians. The Catholic Church has been divided for the past 1,000 years.
September 5: Belfast, the English and Irish again show their cultural barbarianism by taking their cultural differences out on innocent children. Eleanor Burns a Protestant mother summed up the situation by saying "we don't care what the whole world thinks of us anymore", as mothers attacked Catholic children in Belfast.
September 8: Scotland is proposing legislation to make it illegal to strike a child under the age of 3 years or to shake, strike with implement or hit the head of a child of any age. Corporal punishment of a child by any agency would be banned.
September 11: In New York, Acts of War by Madmen. Osama Bin Laden, b-1957, a suspected Saudi Arabian terrorist from Afghanistan who previously declared war on the United States, warned three weeks ago that his Islamic Fundamentalist followers would carry out an unprecedented attack on the United States. Four passenger airliners were hijacked by nineteen Arabs, mostly Saudis citizens. Two aircraft were crashed into the 110 story twin towers of the World Trade Center in New York City and both were leveled. A third one was crashed into the Pentagon and the fourth was aborted from its terrorist mission, due to the actions of the passengers, and it crashed in Pennsylvania. It is believed the terrorists used knives to gain access to the flight decks then used their own Kamikaze pilots. It is noteworthy that under Islamic Law these pilots and their associates currently reside in hell.
To kill an innocent being is like killing entire humanity. (Al Qur'an 5:32) The Islamic Muslim culture is guilty of sins of omission. Who speaks out when Saddam Hussein (1937-2006) uses chemical weapons against Muslims (Kurds). Who spoke out when the Pakistani army used excesses against Muslims (Beggalis). Who recalls the Mujahadeen of Afghanistan and their mutual slaughter of Muslims. Who speaks for the Shiis of Saudis? The Islamic culture of hate and killing is tearing away at the moral fabric of the Muslim culture. In pursuit of hate, Islam has pulled the Jihad into the gutter.
"Terrorism and Religious Fundamentalism profane the name of God and disfigure the authenticity of the image of man." This according to Pope John Paul II (1978-2005). It is significant that he included Religious Fundamentalism in the same class as Terrorism.
September 11: Terrorists hijacked commercial airlines and destroyed the World Trade Center in New York City, and the whole world is changed.
September 24: Afghanistan: "War is our hobby, the sound of guns firing is like music for us. We cannot live without war. We have no other way except Jihad (holy war)". Maulana Inyadullah for Islam.
November 9: The smacking of kids is banned in Sweden, Israel, Norway and Germany, but the British concluded the majority want to retain the right to smack their kids. This barbaric practice of spanking children is based on English Common Law that allows corporal punishment of wives, servants, apprentices and children. Canadian Aboriginal Common Law considers the striking of children an uncivilized, barbaric act.
Europe has seen 45 consecutive years of fertility decline for unclear reasons. The majority of infertile men is genetic damage to the Y chromosome. Sperm count has declined 50% between 1930 to 1990. Some believe the cause is the use of chemicals in the environment. Current fertility rates are England 1.64, Spain 1.2, Italy 1.3, Greece 1.3. Germany 1.4 and Japan is 1.4., Canada is 1.52 and the United States is 2.08. 1.7 is considered the lowest for maintaining a reasonable balance of old to young people with a negative population growth. Immigration is the only other way to maintain a zero population growth but many countries are rejecting this as an option as their cultural identity is being threatened.
The USA leads a war in Afghanistan (2002-2003).
Russia is battling to remove 10,000 English words that has crept into their language base. France and Holland have similar concerns. When well we learn that language does not constitute a culture. Attempts at language purity is attempts at isolationism and leads to confusion, misunderstanding and conflict between peoples. Language should be allow to naturally evolve.
Many Americans wonder why nothing has been done about the Saudi Arabia situation: It is the birthplace of Osama bin Laden, b-1957, home of 15 of the September 11 hijackers and some suggest it is a nation accused of using its wealth to ferment terrorism. The paradox is it is friendly towards the United States (only the elite and royal family). The young people have been systematically indoctrinated by the Wahhabi to be hostile toward infidels. As a culture it appears to be caught up in an old and new world order. Nearly 50% of its working class are foreigners, classed as infidels. Unemployment among Saudi men tops 15% and in age group 20-24 it tops 30%. The Saudi say we allowed our youth to grow up in pampered emptiness, that why they turn to terrorism to find themselves. Most Saudis are uneducated for a modern world and are prime candidates for the Religious Police force, so they can dominate women.
January 11: Over 95% of Saudis between the ages of 25 to 41 have sympathy for Osama Bin Laden b-1957. A large percentage of the Pakistan educated Taliban and Al Qaeda are Wahhabi Muslims.
January 29: Some contend President George Walker Bush b-1946 is an Evangelical President and that the wars in the Middle east against the "Axis of Evil" is another 'Holy Crusade'.
March: Rofayd Qaoud was raped by her brothers Fahdi Qaoud, age 22 and Ali Qaoud, age 20 and impregnated her. Her mother Amira Abu Hanhan Qaoud murdered her daughter be living any good Palestine Muslim would do it to save "family honor". Palestine law mitigates the crime of premeditated murder for "honor killings". Palestine police report 31 known cases of "honor killing" last year. It is suggested the numbers on unreported murders is closer to 465 per year.
March 11: Makkah Intermediate School No. 31 a girl's schools fire killed at least fourteen students, the Saudi Arabia's Religious Police are accused of not allowing the girls to escape or to be saved because they were 'not properly covered', and the mutaween did not want physical contact to take place between the girls and the civil defense forces for fear of sexual enticement, and variously that the girls were locked in by the police, or forced back into the building. Civil Defense officer said,
"Whenever the girls got out through the main gate, these people (the Religious Police) forced them to return via another. Instead of extending a helping hand for the rescue work, they were using their hands to beat us."
The "Saudi Gazette" and "Al-Iqtisaddiyya" reported the incident. The result was a very rare public criticism of the Religious Police. According to the statements of parents, firemen, and the regular police forces present at the scene, the religious police forcibly prevented girls from escaping the burning school by locking the doors of the school from the outside, and barring firemen from entering the school to save the girls, beating some of the girls and civil defense personnel in the process.
May, The French ambassador to London in 2001 described Israel as a shitty little country. In April 2002 the hypocritical anti-Semitism stance of the French People shout 'death to the Jews'! and 'Adolf Hitler (1889-1945) an Austrian was Right' as hundreds of synagogues, kosher restaurants and Jewish schools, cemeteries and community centers have been vandalized, ransacking, firebombing and spray-painting of swastikas are common, and Jewish institutions have been riddled with gunfire. In April 2002 alone there was 500 such incidents reported. The world was shocked as Jean Marie le Pen achieved second place in the French Presidential election with his Nazism brand of anti-Semitism with echoes of Vichy fascism as a reflection of a changing French culture. The French Government and police agencies are ignoring this made in France 'final solution'. The French have forgotten World War II.
June: Italy is the first European Nation to enact what is called racism legislation to limit non Europeans in Italy. It is pushed by the Fascist National Alliance.
July: Gigantic jets of lightning are discovered over the South China Sea. The scientists think this upper atmospheric activity may play a role in ozone formation.

A book in Los Angeles this year, published by the Cultural Department of the
Government of Saudi Arabia reads: "Be dissociated from the infidels,
hate them for their religions, leave them, never rely on them for support, do
not admire them, and always oppose them in every way according to Islamic
Law". A sampling of over 200 such texts from all American Mosques and
all spread, sponsored or other wise generated by Wahhabis Muslims of Saudi
Arabia. They include such fatwas (Principles, beliefs and values) as:
Non Wahhaba Muslims are infidels.
Anyone who casts doubt about an infidels infidelity leaves no doubt about his own infidelity.
Muslims who advocate tolerance are infidels.
Those who convert out of Islam should be killed or apostasy (rejection of Islam) is punishable by death..
Jews are those who have incurred your wrath.
Christians are those who have gone astray.
Jews and Christians are condemned to the eternal fires of hell.
The role of Saudi Arabia in the Muslim world is similar to the role of the Vatican.
The Saudi Wahhaba has a totalitarian doctrine of other religious hatred.
It is forbidden for infidels to enter mosques
It is forbidden for a Muslim to be employed in the service of an unbeliever.
A infidel domestic worker, you have to hate her for Alleh's sake.
Christmas is an abominable activity, a practice more loathsome to God, than imbibing liquor, or murder, or fornication.
Europe has a growing concern about its population decline and extraordinary measures have not stopped this serious decline. Encouraging immigration has not worked as the landed immigrants soon adopt the countries birth rate averages. Money incentives don't appear to change the rate. Liberal abortion laws however have contributed to this downward spiral. In Europe 2.1 children per woman is considered to be the population replacement level. The following are national averages.
Sheikh Issa Bin Zayed Al Nayan b-1669 son late United Arab Emirates President Zayed Bin Sultan Al Hahyan, and brother of the present ruler of Abu Dhabi, the Emir Khalifa Bin Zayed Al Hahydn and brother of the crown Prince Mohammed Bin Zayed Al Nahyan. Sheikh Issa is a masochistic barbarian who enjoys mercilessly torturing at least 25 people, some were Sudanese immigrants, with whips, electric cattle prods and wooden planks with protruding nails and then vidotaping for later viewing. Bassam Nabulsi of Huston Texas smuggled out a videotape of Mohanned Shah Poor of Afghanistan who was also run over by a Mercedes SUV , had lighter fluid poured on his genitals and set alight and had salt poured on his wounds. Sheikh Issa is also accused of rape. The UAE police were also involved and abused Bassam Nabulsi trying to get the vidotape back but he told them he had destroyed the tape. This should be a warning to anyone working for the UAE.

"Give them victory in Palestine, oh God, make the Muslims triumphant and destroy their enemies, and make this country and other Muslim countries safe. Oh God, inflict your wrath on the criminal Zionists." If these quotations are accurate, then its a prayer in support of war and terrorism. Its a prayer in support of Osama Bin Laden and his people, in support of Al Qaeda and other terrorists everywhere. "Who ever does bad deeds is in misery." Sheik Abdul Aziz al Sheik says those who claim to be holy warriors are an affront to the faith. They are giving their enemies an excuse to criticize Muslim countries. "Is it holy war to shed Muslim blood? Is it holy war to shed the blood of non-Muslims given sanctuary in Muslims lands? Is it holy war to destroy the possessions of Muslims?

Four fifths of doctors in Flanders, Belgium support the killing of infants. A recent year long study on Flanders recorded that 50% of new born were murdered by doctors. They committed these murders by withholding treatment or by lethal injection of pain killers. Doctors in Holland are campaigning to change the law to allow the murder of babies. Eugenics as deployed by Hitler is alive and well, to eliminate those undesirable people from our society. The Nuremberg Trials declared eugenics by sterilization as a crime against humanity and extermination of the Jews as a holocaust. What do we call the extermination of the unborn, the elderly and the new born??

February: An European publication of caricatures of the prophet Muhammad has demonstrated that Islam is a religion of fanatical beliefs and values. Protestors in Iraq, Syria, Lebanon, Afghanistan, Palestine, Pakistan. Malaysia, Sri Lanka, Bangladesh, Indonesia, Philippines, Egypt, Isreal, Jordon, New Zealand and capital cities throughout Europe, in the name of God and Islam, are responsible for killing people, kidnapped and beating of innocent people, burning of cars and buildings, and desecrating Christian churches. Denmark first published the cartoons, followed by France, Norway, Austria, New Zealand, Italy, Germany, Spain, United States, Canada and 32 other countries. Islamic fundamentalists and many Islamic moderates are calling for Christian blood, for violence, for beheading, for their execution or just to kill the infidels. Some say "Bin Laden Strikes Again" or "kill Danes! down the Denmark." They say remember Salmon Rushdie and the order for his execution for publishing the 'Satanic Verses'. The Vatican says the caricatures are unacceptable provocation. Western countries including the United States suggest the caricatures are in poor taste. Europeans contend it is a matter of freedom of the press vs. Islam sensibilities. They further believe that Arab (Islam) intolerance is a danger for every free culture. The cartoons are not very funny but do portray the underlying concern that Islam is based on fanatics, intolerance and terrorism. The current call for a Jihad (holy war) is a cornerstone of the Islamic faith and is historically based on armed force of a violent nature.
February: The Muslim religious riots are planned and organized by Islamic organizations in support of the Jihad doctrine of Islam, as established by Muhammad. Jihad is a religious obligation of the Muslim community as a whole. It is an obligation of every able-bodied individual. It will continue until every person in the world adopts the Muslim faith or submits to Muslim rule. Muslims who do not submit to the religious doctrine of Jihad are considered as renegades.

It is noteworthy that the Jihad (holy war) of the Muslims finds it counter part in the Crusades (holy war) of the Christians in (1095-1291)

February 8: A $50 billion plan is proposed to prevent Europe from sinking into a deep freeze due to climate change. The Pacific Gulf Stream brings tropical heated water north to Europe and it has been weakening, forcing Europe into a potential deep freeze. About 6,200 B.C. Europe was plunged into a mini ice age for 1,000 years, some suggest it was only 300 years. It was called Younger Dryas caused by the draining of Lake Agassiz in Canada into the Hudson Bay, lowering the salt content and stopping the Pacific Gulf Stream carrying warm water to Europe. It is noteworthy that Lake Agassiz was the largest fresh water lake in the history of the world. Some suggest Younger Dryas was 10,800 B.C. and lasted over 1,000 years. A study in July 16, 2009 says the Pacific Gulf Stream has shut down with some regularity in the past and some times quite rapidly. This report out of Oregon State University using a massive computer model disputes the earlier studies and suggest European cooling is likely to not occur until after 3,000 A.D. when the currents are expected to drop by 30% rather than within a decade or two as previously modeled.
February 14: India; Hindus of the Awakening Forum threatened to beat up young couples who exchange Valentine's day cards or gifts. Any public display of affection between the sexes, including hand-holding is prohibited.

February 25: An e-mail making the circuit:
I am saddened that a world can live with such unconscionable actions and somehow the perpetrators believe they are right - just.

March 23: Afaghanistan; A Muslim cleric Abdul Raoulf, called a Islamic moderate, calls for the execution of Abdul Rahman for converting from Islam to Christianity 16 years ago. Abdul Rahman was arrested when it was discovered he had a bible. Muslim's believe those who abandon their faith must be executed. "These people (Muslims) have turned Islam into the Mafia: you can get in alive, but you can get out only with death." This Principle is central to sharia law and this is based on the memoirs of the barbaric Prophet Muhannad (570-632) "If a Muslim discards his religion, kill him". Raoulf is presently on trial for his life. The government insist he is mentally unfit, and therefore cannot stand trial. The clerics say this is just an attempt by the government to avoid Islamic law. If he is released the cleric say they will incite the people to rip him apart. The clerics say "rejecting Islam is insulting god, we will not allow god to be humiliated." About 100 students led by clerics marched through the streets chanting "death to Christians" The allied forces said we didn't come to Afghanistan to support religious intolerance. Most world leaders condemn this barbaric Islam practice. Many believe Islam stands for intolerance, barbarism and injustice based on their actions. Even in Canada the President Syed Mumtaz Ali of the Canadian Society of Muslims say we must permit as "reasonable" the Islamic community to execute any Muslim trying to leave Islam. It is suggested that the Muslim Religious churches be stripped of their religious and charitable status world wide to remove any and all tax advantage until they stop holding Allah & God in contempt.

The United Nations is part of the problem, therefore parties to a defensive force should be those countries who desire permanent peace in the region. ie. any interested country in the world, except Israel.
3. Herbullah as a terrorist organization, then the existing 23 members of parliament are removed from government.

May 13: Rev. Dr. Peter J. Hammond b-1960 Cape Town, raised in Bulawayo
war torn Rhodesaia (now called Zimpabwe) a controversial missionary who has
traveled Africa and Eastern Europe, evangelized Mozambique, Anglolia and Sudan,
under death threats and published many books but the focus is on a book titled SLAVERY,
TERRORISM & ISLAM - The Historical Roots and Contemporary Threat.
He concludes and uses (percentages source CIA: The World Fact Book (2007);
He contends "Islam is not a Religion, nor is it a Cult (in the conventional sense), it is viewed as 100% system of life"
As long as the Muslim population remains around 1% of any given country they will be regarded as a peace-loving minority and not as a threat to anyone. In fact, they may be featured in articles and films, stereotyped for their colorful uniqueness:
United States -- Muslim 1.0%
Australia -- Muslim 1.5%
Canada -- Muslim 1.9%
China -- Muslim 1%-2%
Italy -- Muslim 1.5%
Norway -- Muslim 1.8%
At 2% and 3% they begin to proselytize from other ethnic minorities and
disaffected groups with major recruiting from the jails and among street gangs:
Denmark -- Muslim 2%
Germany -- Muslim 3.7%
United Kingdom -- Muslim 2.7%
Spain -- Muslim 4%
Thailand -- Muslim 4.6%
From 5% on they exercise an inordinate influence in proportion to their
percentage of the population.
They will push for the introduction of halal (clean by Islamic standards) food, thereby securing food preparation jobs for Muslims. They will increase pressure on supermarket chains to feature it on their shelves -- along with threats for failure to comply. ( United States ).
France -- Muslim 8%
Philippines -- Muslim 5%
Sweden -- Muslim 5%
Switzerland -- Muslim 4.3%
The Netherlands -- Muslim 5.5%
Trinidad &Tobago -- Muslim 5.8%
At this point, they will work to get the ruling government to allow them to rule themselves under Sharia, the Islamic Law. The ultimate goal of Islam is not to convert the world but to establish Sharia law over the entire world.
When Muslims reach 10% of the population, they will increase lawlessness as a
means of complaint about their conditions ( Paris --car-burnings). Any
non-Muslim action that offends Islam will result in uprisings and threats
(Amsterdam - Mohammed cartoons).
Guyana -- Muslim 10%
India -- Muslim 13.4%
Israel -- Muslim 16%
Kenya -- Muslim 10%
Russia -- Muslim 10-15%
After reaching 20% expect hair-trigger rioting, jihad militia formations, sporadic killings and church and synagogue burning:
Ethiopia -- Muslim 32.8%
At 40% you will find widespread massacres, chronic terror attacks and ongoing militia warfare:
Bosnia -- Muslim 40%
Chad -- Muslim 53.1%
Lebanon -- Muslim 59.7%
From 60% you may expect unfettered persecution of non-believers and other religions, sporadic ethnic cleansing (genocide), use of Sharia Law as a weapon and Jizya, the tax placed on infidels:
Albania -- Muslim 70%
Malaysia -- Muslim 60.4%
Qatar -- Muslim 77.5%
Sudan -- Muslim 70%
After 80% expect State run ethnic cleansing and genocide:
Bangladesh -- Muslim 83%
Egypt -- Muslim 90%
Gaza -- Muslim 98.7%
Indonesia -- Muslim 86.1%
Iran -- Muslim 98%
Iraq -- Muslim 97%
Jordan -- Muslim 92%
Morocco -- Muslim 98.7%
Pakistan -- Muslim 97%
Palestine -- Muslim 99%
Syria -- Muslim 90%
Tajikistan -- Muslim 90%
Turkey -- Muslim 99.8%
United Arab Emirates -- Muslim 96%
100% will usher in the peace of 'Dar-es-Salaam' -- the Islamic House of Peace -- there's supposed to be peace because everybody is a Muslim:
Afghanistan -- Muslim 100%
Saudi Arabia -- Muslim 100%
Somalia -- Muslim 100%
Yemen -- Muslim 99.9%
Of course, that's not the case. To satisfy their blood lust, Muslims then
start killing each other for a variety of reasons.
'Before I was nine I had learned the basic canon of Arab life. It was me against my brother; me and my brother against our father; my family against my cousins and the clan; the clan against the tribe; and the tribe against the world and all of us against the infidel." Leon Uris, 'The Haj'
It is good to remember that in many, many countries, such as France, the Muslim populations are centered around ghettos based on their ethnicity. Muslims do not integrate into the community at large. Therefore, they exercise more power than their national average would indicate.
July 11: France Credit Mutuel pays 4.9 Euro ($8 billion) to buy Citygroup's banking operations in Germany called Citybank.
August 13: The Vatican has ruled that the Name of God, commonly rendered as "Yahweh," should not be pronounced in the Catholic liturgy. The Congregation for Divine Worship, in issuing the new directive, reminds bishops that in Hebrew tradition, which the early Christians adopted, the faithful avoided pronouncing the Name of God. The Vatican directive explains that "as an expression of the infinite greatness and majesty of God, it was held to be unpronounceable". Christians believe that "Yehweh" and "Jesus" are one and the same, therefore following the Vatican logic, then "Jesus" should not be pronounced in the Catholic liturgy?
Does this imply that the Holy Bible on next printing will be changed to eliminate the many references to "Yahweh".
Exodus 3, 15, which is believed to be the oldest book of the Bible, reads "You are to say to the sons of Israel"; "YAHWEH, the God of your Fathers, the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob, has sent me to you". " This is my name for all time; by this name I shall be invoked for all generations to come".
YHW aka YHWH or more commonly YAHWEH (Yahew, Yahwe or Yahwa) is believed to have originated in Midiam (Saudi Arabia) was extensively spoken and used by the Jewish community prior to the destruction of the Temple by the Romans. After the destruction of Temple (Beit ha-Midkash) in Jerusalem Gods name was not to be spoken again. Observant Jews are not to pronounce "Yahweh" because it is considered too sacred to be used for common activities. Even ordinary prayer is considered too common for this use. This is interesting as God was very clear, if we believe Exodus, he wanted his name to be used for generations to come. It would appear the Jewish culture abandoned their intimate relationship with God in 70 A.D.?
The early Hebrew tradition, encouraged the use of "Yahweh" and I doubt if early Christians abandoned this ancient tradition.
This maybe politically correct but Yahweh would not be pleased, with the Congregation for Divine Worship, in my opinion.

These rulings make it very clear that Islamic Law supports slavery and pedophilia of female children. They contend by fitna that slavery is part of Islam and slavery is part of Jihad. The mother of the child has been trying to get the marriage annulled or divorced but she has no rights of guardianship because she is separated from her husband.
Wahhabi is a Sunni sect of Islam based on the Qur'an and the Hadith and traces it's origins to 1740 (Ibn Abd al-Wahhab). It is noteworthy that the Saudi Wahhabi have their own unique version of the Koran that differs from the original Arabic Qur'an. It contends Islamic Prophet Muhamrad "ordered an adulteress be stoned to death", they believe followers must not only always oppose infidels in every way but to hate them for their religions, and that Shi'a, Sufi, Shiite and other non-Wahhabi Muslims are infidels. They believe democracy is responsible for all horrible wars and problems of the 20th century. Wahhabis Muslims must not tolerate infidels nor embrace International Human Rights norms or promote greater freedom. Muslims are told that "innovative imans" are heretics and their prayers are invalid. These beliefs are enforced by Religious Police (Wutawwa) (Committee for the Promotion of Virtue and the Prevention of Vice) are in reality a form of Secret Police, like the Nazis of WWII, with wide powers. Power to arrest anyone engaged in homosexual acts, prostitution, fornication, or proselytizing of non-Muslim religions, they can also arrest unrelated males and females caught socializing, enforce Islamic dress-codes, Muslim dietary laws, store closure during prayer time, prohibit the consumption or sale of alcoholic beverages and seize banned consumer products and media regarded as un-Islamic (such as CDs/DVDs of various Western musical groups, television shows and film). They also actively prevent the religious practices of other religions within Saudi Arabia. Pagan feasts are prohibited such as Valentine's day, including red products such as red roses and red stuffed animals. In fact the police have issued a decree banning the sale of dogs and cats, also seen as a sign of Western influence.
An Al Chami, Saudi Arabian Court has sentenced a 75 year old Syrian woman, Khamisa Mohammed Sawadi, to 40 lashes and 4 months jail, as well as deportation from the Kingdom, for having unrelated men, Fahd age 24 and his friend Hadian, in her house. It is noteworthy that she raised Fahd including being his wet nurse. Fahd got 4 months in jail with 40 lashes, his friend Hadian got 6 months jail with 60 lashes. This ruling is according to the Wahhabism. The Wahhabism is used by the Religious Police (Wutawwa) to control the people by regulating segregation of the sexes, dress code of women, the ban on woman from driving and restricting women's travel without a mans permission.
It is noteworthy that the Taliban or Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan had adopted the Saudi Arabia's Religious Police (Wutawwa) concept (religious fundamentalism) based on the Qur'an because they didn't want to lose the Saudi Financial or Political support. Afghan President Hamid Karzai passed a repressive Law similar to the Saudi Wahhabai proposed by Mohammad Asif Mohseni, I suspect for the same reasons as the Taliban. Folks world wide are beginning to question the wisdom of the involvement in Afghanistan, if basic Human Rights are not being observed and incorporated into law. However Muslims believes Human Rights are dismissed as a weapon of the infidels used to attack and undermine Islam.
The only thing Muslims fear is 'Interfaith Harmony' as it will lead to the end of jihad against the infidels. Love and Islam have not mixed in the past. The resolution of jihad is to address the atrocities of the past, in the light of objective history. Wahhabi has distorted Islam, distorted the Qur'an, and some Muslims say its has satanic tendencies. The Crusades have not been satisfactorily resolved in the Muslim mind.
April: The issue of the resurgence of Muslim fundamentalism in Afghanistan has raised the question of the use of Burka or head cover by women. The Wahhabi Muslims who support the Talaban and al-Qaeda in the region say: If a Muslim woman unveil themselves, which is a fundamental principle of modesty, the whole Muslim community will be in peril. Educated Muslim woman say: The Qur'an does not mention burka or head cover (hijab). It is Muslim men who want woman to ware burka and head cover (hijab) to subordinate women by turning women into things. Others say the Muslim male has no inhibitions or moral restraints, but for the veil, which masks his inability to control himself. The al-hijab means a veil that separates man or the world from God. The hijab in the Qur'an only applies to men while in the presence of Muhammad's wives. The hijab didn't become an issue until the 1970's when some countries imposed them by law on women but not men. The hijab is not used in non-Muslim countries because the covering of a face implies a bandit or someone with something sinister to hid. However it is noteworthy that the bridal veil was still in use in some bridal outfits of the recent past. It is believed that the imposition of the veil or al-hijab leads to other suppressive traditions against woman, such as child brides a form of slavery, sexual domination of wives, restrictions of education, work outside the home and mobility including operating cars without a family member being present.
The Wahhabi Muslims in Afghanistan and Pakistan are fighting a religious war of Jihad. The United Nations is fighting a political war of freedom and democracy. These are not compatible philosophies about which to wage war. The war should focus on a war of education concerning religious tolerance, focus on love of neighbor and visitors vs. hate of all infidels, implications of the evils of jihad against the people. Might is not always right.

September 5: Geneva, Switzerland attended by 1,500 climate scientists sponsored by (IPCC) the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on climate change;
Professor Mojib Latif of Germany one of the leading authors and respected climate modeler of the world, and a climate physicist of the Leibniz Instutite of Marine Sciences at the University of Keil, Germany says we are likely in a Global cooling cycle since 1999 (1994 if you consider statistical significance) and is expected to continue into 2019 or even 2029. The operative words have evolved from 'Global Warming' to 'Climate Change' to 'Climate Variability' and next to 'Natural Variability' or 'Natural Cycles'.
"The oceans are key to decade natural variability" Latif says. James Murphy, head of climate prediction at the UK's Met Office, agrees.
"I am not one of the skeptics. However, we have to ask the questions ourselves or other people will do it" Litif says.
Were you mistaken about your fundamental assumptions?
Were your climate models deficient?
Were you wrong to suggest climate in absolute terms such as 'WILL', 'global warming tipping point', 'runaway global warming' , we must act 'now'?
Were we using poor scientific methodology, poor science?
Were we over zealous, failed to encourage apposing opinions?
"In many ways we know more about what will (a true scientists would say 'may', 'might' 'could') happen in 2050 than next year" said Dr. Vicky Pope of the UK's Met Office. Other studies are more blunt; OIS-3 (Oxygen Isotope Stage-3) studies conclude that "variations in orbit, CO2, and ice sheet size are are of little significance in explaining the observed climate variability". Dr. Vicky Pope told the conference that the dramatic Arctic ice loss in recent summers was partly the product of natural cycles rather than global warming. "The oceans are key to decade natural variability" Litif says. OIS-3 which studies climate from 57,000 B.C. to present times concluded; "The model results focus attention on North Atlantic sea-surface temperatures (SST) as a major factor in explaining OIS-3 climates". Not just decade variability. The climate models assumed that man made CO2 emissions would warm the oceans but the exact opposite happened, the ocean cooled. Scientist in Germany and the USA have come to the same conclusions, Latif says "short-term" predictions (10-20 years) are unreliable. Dr. Vicky Pope has a Phd in meteorology (stratospheric dynamics) suggests scientists cannot give precise predictions of what will happen in 100 years, or even in the next 10 years.
Who speaks for the one billion people who are going hungry in 2009 (according to W.H.O.) and the tens of thousands that are dying, because we turn food into ethanol for our cars, based on Global warming predictions, by the climate scientists, and pushed by environmental fanatics. The politicians succumbed to this political pressure and did irrational things by subsidizing this horrific practice.
Who speaks for the tens of billions of dollars spent to prevent Global warming, that MIGHT happen in 50 to 100 years? This money could have been more wisely spent on our Global Recession problems, hunger, health care, unemployment, failing financial systems.
Will the Al Gore and David Suzuki's of the world apologize for leading the environmental fanatics astray?
Will the science community, the news community apologize for their part in the process?

Solar activity increases or decreases in a regular 11 years cycle. Lack of solar flares in the Maunder Minimum (also known as the prolonged sunspot minimum) is the name used for the period roughly spanning 1645 to 1715 when sunspots were at their lowest causing a mini ice age. During this period frost fairs were held on the frozen Thames River in London and residents of Manhattan could stroll across the frozen New York.

March 1: RESEARCH NOTES ON GENDER IMBALANCE
Over 100 million women are missing in Asia. Some call
it the testosterone glut gender imbalance
The sex ratio at birth worldwide is consistent at about 100 girls to 101 boys born, but other studies suggest female newborns to male newborns around the world is always approximately 100/100 at birth, and methods of surveys of new born deaths may cause the difference?
The Arab league has a sex ratio of men over women and Qatar being the greatest in the world at 100/346 males
Countries in the Arabian Peninsula tend to have a near 'natural' ratio of 100/105 at birth but a very high ratio of males for those ’over 65’ (Saudi Arabia 100/113, Arab Emirates 100/273, Kuwait 100/178 and Qatar 100/284) for reasons not fully understood.
India accounts for 50 million 100/116 overall and in some areas its 60/100 males. 500,000 to 700,000 girl births are missing each year
China next accounts for 40 million others say only 32 million but sex ratio is 100/123 some provinces are 100/125 males

March 11: A category 9.0 earth
quake hit just off the coast of Japan. The earthquake triggered extremely
destructive tsunami waves of up to
10 meters (33 ft) that struck Japan minutes after the quake, in some
cases traveling up to 10 km (6 mi) inland, with
smaller waves reaching many other countries after several hours.
The death toll has not been determined but it’s over 25,000 at last
count. Only 4 others have been of this intensity in the last 100 years
Chile 9.5, in 1960, Alaska 9.2, in 1964, Sumatra 9.1, in 2004, and Kamchatika,
Russia 9.0 in 1952.
The March 11, 2011 earthquake that hit eastern Japan was so powerful it pulled the entire country out and down into the sea. The mostly devastated coastal communities now face regular flooding, because of their lower elevation and damage to sea walls from the massive tsunamis triggered by the quake.

Liberian mercenaries have been reported to be fighting for both Mr. Gbagbo and Mr. Ouattara. .

April 13: The builders of Abu Dubai (UAE) are not being paid for their work at all, they're being forced to sleep outside, or worksites that are unsafe. The population of UAE is 948,000 nationals but the 6,400,000 expiates mostly have few rights and no chance of citizenship or property ownership. The Pakistan, Philippine and Indian laborers built Dubai but have no no rights and their passports are held so they can't freely leave the emirates. They are basically kept in a state of slavery. Expatriates from other are subject to different rules and don't give up their passports. However both groups have trouble getting paid. This sounds like a good reason for revolution. The UAE debt is estimated as $200 billion, Burj Dubai is $20 billion in debt. Dubai is basically out of oil reserves, 6% of GDP and it's property value has dropped 50%, Palm Island is deserted, a grave yard. Yet Dubai is still spending other peoples money like drunken sailors. Dubai has followed Ponzi Economics.

April 23: Yemen's embattled President Ali Abdullah Saleh's agreed Saturday to a proposal by Gulf Arab mediators to step down within 30 days and hand power to his deputy in exchange for immunity from prosecution, a major about-face for the autocratic leader who has ruled for 32 years. A day earlier, protesters staged the largest of two months of demonstrations, filling a five-lane boulevard across the capital with a sea of hundreds of thousands of people.
Some suggest it is driven by greed, entitlement and lack of humility, a human failure of values.
Others suggest it is driven by institutional failure, by Banks, Wall Street, and big Business.
Still other suggests it’s cultural in Origin. An Anglo Saxon failing was used as an example.
Others say its failure of policy, and regulation, to control traders and speculators.
Some say its excessive power of labor or capital.
Many say it’s caused by credit, creation of a credit based economy. Sub-prime mortgages, credit cards, lines of credit, etc.
A popular belief is it’s caused by financial innovation. Hedging, short selling, buying and selling things you don’t own, have or want to own.
One common belief is capital can’t resolve a crisis it just moves it around.
The only absolute is we truly don’t know what is really wrong, and therefore we don’t know how to fix it.
Bank and business bailout, near zero interest rates, stimulation programs, TARP Troubled Asset Relief Program, TANF Temporary Assistance to needy families and recently Quantitative Easing (the print money policy) and all these programs have failed miserably.
Quantitative Easing is the most dangerous policy created by man, and to learn more go to http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PTUY16CkS-k
Its likely all the above are just symptoms of Great Depressions and Great Recessions.
So! if we can’t define what it is, maybe we can define what it is not.
The human condition is out of balance and harmony with our man made creations.
We have lost our integrity, our humility, our moral compass, our very human essence, of fundamental Principles, Beliefs and values of mankind.
The world is at a cross roads, choose your path carefully.

May 1: The killing of Osama bin
Mohammed bin Award bin Laden, (1957-2011), Saudi-born, from a billionaire
family, his mother was Hamida Al-Attas the 10th wife of 11 wives of his father
Mohamned bin Laden. Bin Laden had 5 wives and about 20 children. The son became an iconic symbol of radical jihad
and the fugitive leader of al-Qaeda, and this marks a historic moment and the
end of a decade-long hunt for the most wanted man on the planet.
U.S. Special Forces secretly flew deep into Pakistan and fought a brief, firefight with
a Kuwaiti courier before killing him Mr. bin Laden was shot
in the chest and head, officials said, after he and his bodyguards appeared to
resist the assault.
The three bodyguards/couriers and a woman were killed and two other women were
injured one being Sama's wife. There were
13 kids in the fortress of which 8 were children of ben Laden. The body of the al-Qaeda leader was flown out for verification using DNA
testing and buried at sea.
Arshad Khan and Bashir Khan, both the sons of Naqab Khan are believed to have built the million dollar fortress in Abbottabad, Pakistan for bin Laden. It is noteworthy that bin Laden last will and testimony written shortly alter 9/11asked his 24 children not to join the jihad and that his wives not remarry after his death. He knew he was a marked man. This action will not likely end the clash between sharply different views of the future of the Muslim world.
It is noteworthy that Pakistan does not allow the USA to interrogate prisoners, but said his youngest wife was living in the 1/2 million dollar fortress for 5 years and others said he traveled everywhere with his youngest wife.
May 18: For the first time America has slapped economic sanctions on Syrian President Bashar al-Assad and 6 of his top aides.

The measure freezes any assets they hold in U.S. jurisdiction, and make it illegal for Americans to do business with them.

October 20: Moammar Gadhafi (1942-2011) dictator of Libya, who called himself king of king of the United Nations of Africa, while fleeing his home town of Sirte, Libya was pinned down by NATO jets. His convoy of 15 to 20 cars was bombed about 8:30 AM killing about 25 supporters. Moammar Gadhafi (1942-1911) and about 17-20 of his inner circle were killed as they fled 200 yards further on. He was found like a rat hiding in a drainage culvert, wounded and bloody about noon. He was beaten with his own shoes (boot) and transported to a hospital in Misrata, west of Sirte, but died on the way, assumed assassinated, with a shot to the head. Video's suggest he was alive and well when captured as was Ahmd Ibrahin and Moussa Ibrahim. Abu Bakryounas and Mutassim Kadhafi were killed. Saif Al-Islam Kadhafi was captured in an separate convoy fleeing Sirte.
October 27: Europe’s leaders are
bending over backwards to avoid a “credit event” that would allow investors
to redeem all the (derivatives) they have bought on Greek debt in the form of
credit default swaps (derivatives) .
The effort involves Greek bondholders taking a 50 per cent loss on their investment but it's a voluntary program.
Europe’s leaders are trying very hard to frame these losses as voluntary, which would avoid triggering a broad Greek CDS (derivative) redemption. Now other members of EU will demand the same bail out for their bond debt.
Given how some investors use the CDS (derivative) market purely for speculative gains, politicians likely won’t lose many votes by using their influence to avoid redemptions.
But the economic risk is that hedge funds (derivatives) and other investors give up on the CDS (derivative) market. Not all money managers treat the CDS (derivative) market like a casino. Many purchase derivatives on their investments to reduce the risk on their balance sheets.
This could result in less investing and by extension, less growth. “If you can’t hedge your position, you shrink your position,”
November: A German's View on Islam by Dr. Emanuel Tanya, a well-known and well-respected psychiatrist.
A man, whose family was German aristocracy prior to World War II, owned a number of large industries and estates. When asked how many German people were true Nazis, the answer he gave can guide our attitude toward fanaticism. 'Very few people were true Nazis,' he said, 'but many enjoyed the return of German pride, and many more were too busy to care. I was one of those who just thought the Nazis were a bunch of fools. So, the majority just sat back and let it all happen. Then, before we knew it, they owned us, and we had lost control, and the end of the world had come. My family lost everything. I ended up in a concentration camp and the Allies destroyed my factories.'
We are told again and again by 'experts' and 'talking heads' that Islam is the religion of peace and that the vast
majority of Muslims just want to live in peace. Although this unqualified assertion may be true, it is entirely irrelevant. It is meaningless fluff, meant to make us feel better, and meant to somehow diminish the spectre of fanatics rampaging across the globe in the name of Islam.
The fact is that the fanatics rule Islam at this moment in history. It is the fanatics who march. It is the fanatics who wage any one of 50 shooting wars worldwide. It is the fanatics who systematically slaughter Christian or tribal groups throughout Africa and are gradually taking over the entire continent in an Islamic wave. It is the fanatics who bomb, behead, murder, or honour-kill. It is the fanatics who take over mosque after mosque. It is the fanatics who zealously spread the stoning and hanging of rape victims and homosexuals. It is the fanatics who teach their young to kill and to become suicide bombers.
The hard, quantifiable fact is that the peaceful majority, the 'silent majority,' is cowed and extraneous.
Communist Russia was comprised of Russians who just wanted to live in peace, yet the Russian Communists were
responsible for the murder of about 20 million people. The peaceful majority were irrelevant.. China's huge population was peaceful as well, but Chinese Communists managed to kill a staggering 70 million people.
The average Japanese individual prior to World War II was not a warmongering sadist. Yet, Japan murdered and
slaughtered its way across South East Asia in an orgy of killing that included the systematic murder of 12 million Chinese civilians; most killed by sword, shovel, and bayonet.
And who can forget Rwanda , which collapsed into butchery. Could it not be said that the majority of Rwandans were 'peace loving'?
History lessons are often incredibly simple and blunt, yet for all our powers of reason, we often miss the most basic
and uncomplicated of points:
Peace-loving Muslims have been made irrelevant by their silence.
Peace-loving Muslims will become our enemy if they don't speak up, because like my friend from Germany , they will awaken one day and find that the fanatics own them, and the end of their world will have begun.
Peace-loving Germans, Japanese, Chinese, Russians, Rwandans, Serbs, Afghans, Iraqis, Palestinians, Somalis,
Nigerians, Algerians, and many others have died because the peaceful majority did not speak up until it was too late. As for us who watch it all unfold, we must pay attention to the only group that counts--the fanatics
who threaten our way of life.
Now Islamic prayers are said to be introduced into Toronto public Schools while the Lord's Prayer was removed (due to being so offensive?)
The Islamic way may be peaceful for the time being in our country until the fanatics move in. And we are silent -
11: I wonder how many world wide protesters are adults living at home
suffering from the "Perpetual Childhood Syndrome"?
Some countries call it 'Boomerang Generation', some the 'Parasite Generation', some just the 'Basement Dwellers'.
The following statistics of men living with their parents age 20-30 years of age are:
These are young people who choose not to emerge into adulthood
They don't want to accept adult roles and responsibilities.
Some researchers believe our brains stop maturing by age 25 and high-order cognitive pattering is established.
Its called synaptic pattering or brain use it or lose it.
If adult roles and responsibility are not established by age 25 then "Perpetual Childhood Syndrome" is entrenched.
It is interesting to note that prior to about 1904 there was no adolescence, children at age 12-13 years of age accepted the roles and responsibilities of adulthood. In fact boys not married by 18 and girls by 16 in Canada, the parents were fined.
We have moved the age of "Emergent Adulthood" from age 13 to age 30.
Do we really understand what we have done and the adverse impact on our cultures?
