‘Islamic oppression’ strikes again,
as 3,066 Christians killed, 1,020 raped

Washington Times, by Cheryl K. Chumley

Original Article

Posted By:LittleHoodedMonk, 1/17/2018 4:35:31 PM

The Bible tells Christians to beware, that to follow Jesus paves the way for a life of challenge, mocking and persecution — that specifically, as Matthew 10:22 states, “you will be hated by all for [His] name’s sake.” (Snip) Fully 215 million Christians are right now facing “high levels of persecution” in 60 different countries, with “Islamic oppression” the driving factor in eight of the top ten, the nonprofit found, in its latest World Watch List 2018. North Korea, for the 16th year in a row, ranked worst for Christian persecution. That’s followed, in order, by Afghanistan, Somalia, Sudan, Pakistan, Eritrea, Libya, Iraq, Yemen

Comments:
The important figures to note are that other than North Korea, it would appear that those who persecute US Christians are from Muslim countries. Why would we possibly want these unrepentant tormentors into our country, mostly unvetted, to breed and eventually attempt to destroy US from within? Let US not forget that this reprehensible behavior is ingrained into the Muslim culture.

It would be easy to say "Yes I´ll die for my faith" ... BUT ... if it really happens that I have to either die, be tortured, or worse, I wonder just how I´d respond. I can only pray that I have the courage to do the right thing as I´ve been taught from childhood.

I think, with your 20 years behind you, you possess the courage and character to stand tall, #1. Trepidation in the face of torture is to be human but no predictor of sustaining faith.
This is a horrible situation and one that should not be tolerated. That nearly half of our country and our country´s leaders are so insane as to not only accept but welcome such people into our country is a sad state of affairs.
We have backed away from the inevitable but that will not solve the problem. They must be contained within their deserts and left to themselves ... and dealt with harshly if they step a foot outside.

Matthew 10: 34-36

He said to them, “But now if you have a purse, take it, and also a bag; and if you don´t have a sword, sell your cloak and buy one.”

We all prefer peace but the Mooslims give us no choice other than to kill every last one of them.

Every last one.

Like a virus.

We are predominately a Christian nation with Judeo-Christian values - why then are we supporting, in any fashion, nations who torture or kill Christians & Jews? They are the true asylum seekers, not those who create or don´t condemn the terrorists.

Meanwhile, on this side of the world, the leftists get their panties in a wad because some dude supposedly tried to take the hijab off a Muslim gal.

And that wasn´t even true. But panties were wadded anyway.

Earlier this month, the House Intelligence Committee revealed that then-FBI director James Comey told lawmakers in March 2017 that bureau agents who questioned then-national security adviser Michael Flynn saw no signs that Flynn was lying. Now, the Senate Judiciary Committee has revealed that Comey told them the same thing, at the same time. In a letter to the Department of Justice and the FBI, committee chairman Sen. Chuck Grassley wrote, "Director Comey specifically told us during that briefing that the FBI agents who interviewed Lt. General Michael Flynn, ´saw nothing that led them to believe [he was] lying.´

North Korea has announced on state media it will dismantle its nuclear test site just weeks ahead of a summit with President Donald Trump. The rogue nation will start to take the facility apart on May 23, with international media watching. The country´s central news agency said the dismantlement of the nuclear test ground would involve collapsing all of its tunnels with explosions, blocking its entrances and removing all observation facilities, research buildings and security posts. Journalists from other countries, including the United States and South Korea, will be invited to cover the event. The nuclear site that will be

Seoul, South Korea - North Korea said Saturday that it will dismantle its nuclear test site on May 23-25, in a dramatic event that would set up leader Kim Jong-un’s summit with President Donald Trump next month. (Snip) In a statement carried by state media, North Korea’s Foreign Ministry said that all of the tunnels at the site will be destroyed by explosion, and that observation and research facilities and ground-based guard units will also be removed. The North plans to invite journalists from the United States, South Korea, China, Russia and Britain to inspect the process, the statement said.

Montreal - The mystery has haunted Canadians for more than a decade: One by one, human feet clad in running shoes have floated ashore on British Columbia’s southern coast with gruesome regularity. (Snip) The 13 feet found previously along the coast since 2007 were in running shoes — Adidas, Reebok and other brands. Each time, the questions arose: Why are the feet ending up in Canada? Where did they come from? And where are the other parts? The discoveries have fanned speculation, rational or not, that the unattached feet could be the work of a tsunami, a human trafficker, a Mafia hit man, a deranged foot fetishist or a serial

Jared Kushner scores first major
bipartisan deal for Trump in Congress

An effort led by senior White House adviser Jared Kushner to both increase prison security and provide a pathway out for some 4,000 well-behaved prisoners has scored a major, and lopsided, victory, the first major bipartisan deal for the Trump White House. The House Judiciary Committee voted 25-5 to back the “First Step Act,” a shocking turn after the media had earlier written off chances that it would pass. “We see it as a big win,” said an administration official involved in the talks between House Republicans and Democrats. Shut the revolving door on crime? Republicans and Democrats work together? Sound impossible?

A former Democratic congressman from Chicago, heading to prison for the third time, says he has “given up on America” and plans to move to Africa after he serves his latest sentence. At his sentencing Thursday, Mel Reynolds, 66, got six months in prison for failing to file tax returns on more than $400,000 he received for consulting work. He also received a scolding from federal Judge Robert Gettleman, who told the Harvard graduate he could recall thinking to himself in the early 1990s that Reynolds had tremendous promise. “It's a tragedy that you squandered the opportunities you had and the type of person you could have become,"

Trump announces the capture of the five
´most wanted´ ISIS terrorists who were

Daily Mail [UK], by David Martosko, Rory Tingle    Original Article

A jubilant President Trump tweeted on Thursday to announce that five of the ´Most Wanted leaders of ISIS´ have been captured after they were lured from Syria to Iraq with fake Telegram messages. Iraqi officials used the cell phone of already captured ISIS lieutenant Ismail al-Eithawi to send instructions via the app for the four other leaders to come to Iraq, where they were seized. The encrypted app was officially named by ISIS as one of its favored mobile messaging services in 2015 and has been regularly used by the terror group for private communication and to spread propaganda.

Iran strikes prove Trump’s
nuke-deal move is already a win

President Trump’s decision to scrap the Iran nuke deal had a lot to do with Tehran’s decision to fire missiles at Israel late Wednesday. First, the Iranians likely timed the attack to make it seem that the president had instantly made things worse in the region. That also explains why Iran’s Houthi proxies in Yemen shot missiles into Saudi Arabia hours after Trump’s nuke-deal news. Second, Iran’s power in Syria and Yemen is itself in good part the result of Team Obama’s policies, including the nuke deal — which left Washington with few ways to respond to Tehran’s non­nuclear outrages while freeing up billions in cash to fund Iranian

Shults’ husband Dean, a fellow pilot for the airline, was originally scheduled as the captain on April 17, however Dean offered to do another flight instead so she'd be able to go to her son’s track meet,(Snip) Southwest Airlines Flight 1380 was on its way to Dallas’ Love Field from New York’s LaGuardia Airport when it made an emergency landing on the runway of Philadelphia International Airport

Boston - Some immigrants living in the country illegally and accused of crimes sit in legal limbo, caught in a tug of a war between local prosecutors and federal immigration authorities who won´t let them appear in court because they fear being denied the opportunity to deport them. (Snip) Under President Trump, the agency is specifically targeting suspects not yet found guilty, a departure from the Obama administration, which focused primarily on those convicted, attorneys say. Advocates argue ICE has also sometimes used criminal allegations against immigrants in their deportation efforts without letting them answer the charges.

Depok, Indonesia — A day after Islamic State followers seized part of a high-security terrorist detention center and killed five guards, the country was left on Thursday with no shortage of questions to ponder. (Snip) Located in the sleepy West Java town of Depok, south of the Indonesian capital, Jakarta, the detention center is in a sprawling, heavily guarded compound of the local headquarters of the Mobile Brigade Corps, a paramilitary unit of the Indonesian National Police, and it was guarded by elite counterterrorism officers. The uprising began with a riot Tuesday night in a section of the detention center

WASHINGTON – President George W. Bush rejected isolationism and said he “wholeheartedly” agrees with the words of Winston Churchill about the U.S. being unable to escape its “world responsibility.” “America is indispensable for the world and the dangers of isolation loom. The price of greatness is responsibilities. One cannot rise to be in many ways the leading community in the civilized world without being involved in its problems, without being convulsed by its agonies and inspired by its causes,” Bush said, quoting the prime minister, after accepting the Atlantic Council’s Distinguished International Leadership Award in Washington on Thursday evening. “If this

Kelly Sadler, a special assistant in the White House, is accused of mocking John McCain on Thursday. McCain, the Republican senator from Arizona, is battling an aggressive form of brain cancer. Two unnamed sources told The Hill that Sadler took issue with McCain´s criticism of President Donald Trump´s CIA nominee, Gina Haspel, allegedly dismissing the ailing McCain, saying "he´s dying anyway." McCain on Wednesday said that Haspel is unfit to run the CIA because she would not say definitively that torture is immoral. That issue is one of several that have made Haspel´s journey toward Senate confirmation an uphill battle.
