NEW FEBRUARY 24, 2011 CHAIRMAN’S REPORT- Issue highlights: Exclusive report from Iraq – Christians in Nineveh Plain try to survive / Congressman’s plan to help Christians, other minorities / South Asia suffers Islamic attacks / Freedom on trial in Europe / Liberal media confused about Ground Zero mosque / White male Islamophobe plans to bomb mosque?
TERROR ATTACK ON OUR TROOPS – This week a Muslim from Kosovo walked onto a bus carrying US airmen at an airport in Germany, and while screaming “Allah Akbar!” he killed two airmen and wounded two others. It is reported that he was a civilian employee of the air base — otherwise he would not have had access to the bus. President Obama’s statement about the attack was very much like the statement he made when Major Hassan killed 13 fellow soldiers in the Ft. Hood massacre. The President made no mention of terror. He opened his remarks by referring to the Islamic attack on unarmed airmen as “a tragic event that took place earlier today in Frankfurt, Germany.” It took seven weeks for the White House to admit that Major Hassan, who also screamed Allah Akbar while killing unarmed servicemen and women, was indeed a terrorist. The final report on Hassan never mentioned that he was a Muslim. We can expect the same from the White House concerning this attack.
AND THE MONEY ROLLS IN – During the 2008 election Barack Obama’s campaign committee officially raised $745 million dollars. After the election, at the end of 2008, Obama’s committee still had $15 million on hand. As Obama starts his run for re-election he is seeking over $1 billion dollars. In contrast his last opponent, Senator John McCain, raised only $380 million and that included federal matching funds.

WARNING TO MUSLIMS: DON’T THREATEN SOUTH PARK – It may be OK to build an offensive mosque at Ground Zero or to call for sharia law being forced upon women — but threatening the purveyors of violent profane filth can get a Muslim tossed into jail. A 21-year-old convert to Islam who threatened the creators of the ‘South Park’ cartoon has been sentenced to 25 years in prison. The college drop-out, Zachary Chesser, was sentenced by a U.S. District Court in Alexandria, Virginia. He pleaded guilty to supporting the al-Shabab terrorist group in Somalia and posting online threats against the South Park creators. The threats of physical harm were made, he said, because of an episode of South Park insulting to Muhammad. NOTE: When conservative leaders who are critical of Islam in the United States have their lives threatened, law enforcement agencies never take the threats seriously and often refuse to take a report.
THE CHURCH AND THE 2012 CANDIDATES – I was stunned by a poll done by the Barna Organization on favorable/unfavorable ratings for the GOP candidates for president. Among Catholics and Protestants, former Governor Sarah Palin’s unfavorable ratings are 64% and 50% respectively. Newt Gingrich’s unfavorable ratings are nearly as high among Christians. On the favorable side, former Governor Mike Huckabee is the leader, with Mitt Romney a close second. See poll results.
FEISAL RAUF’S SHARIA WHITEWASH – Despite all the suffering caused every day by Sharia law, mostly to Christians but also to Muslims, Imam Feisal Rauf actually claimed during a Tuesday panel that “the fundamentals of Islamic law insist that there be freedom of religion.” Rauf and Denver Archbishop Charles Chaput disagreed over the role of Sharia in society during a panel discussion held Tuesday at George Washington University’s Berkley Center for Religion, Peace, and World Affairs.

ONLY CHRISTIAN PAKISTANI CABINET MEMBER ASSASSINATED – Shahbaz Bhatti, who was the minister of religious minorities, was the second high-level Pakistani government official to be assassinated in the past two months. Both officials had opposed Pakistan’s “blasphemy” laws that impose the death penalty for insulting Islam. He had been assigned police guards, but did not use them because it was a bodyguard who had killed the other official, Punjab province Governor Salman Taseer. Tens of thousands of Muslims flooded the streets to celebrate the murder of Taseer, showing the true nature of this “moderate” Islamic nation that is an ally of the United States. Read details
