Everything Is A Lie: The Deliberate Intent To Deceive People Is At An All Time High

Category : World Affairs

editors note: 

A tradition from the Holy Prophet (s.a.w.s) declares, “Beware I inform you regarding the greatest of the mortal sins:  1. Associating anything with Allah, 2. Disobeying parents and 3. Lying!”   The eleventh Holy Imam, Hasan Al-Askari (a.s.) said, “All the evils (acts against humanity) have been locked in a room and its key is lying.”

Although the author does a remarkable job in documenting examples of the devastating impact that telling lies have on modern society, he barely scratches the surface in conveying just how pervasive this problem really is.  However, the few examples he does cite are sufficient in helping one to appreciate why Islam would regard the effect of telling lies to be akin to a fast-growing cancer which, if not aggresively resisted on every front by people of truth, would permanently alter life on planet earth.

 

From pollution to politics, the era of deception and duplicity has reached new heights and hijacked almost every form of media in the world. In the last frontiers for truth such as the internet, disinformation operations are in full swing to discredit and destroy any semblance of authentic and factual information available to the public.

How many more lies will people around the world accept as truth? Some say a global awakening is taking place, but at what cost? Will it take the destruction of most of the earth and its resources before people are enlightened?

The escalating media and political reports are so far fetched, cunning, and so beyond reality, it’s as if each is trying to top the other with one sinister plot after the next. To demonstrate the outright lies by national governments and the media, let’s take three examples from the last year alone, including the H1N1 scandal, airport body scanners and the BP oil disaster.

The H1N1 Scandal

Last year, the H1N1 scandal reached its pinnacle in the fall of 2009 when the world united on the internet with a consensus and practical understanding of the World Health Organization’s orchestratration to deceive the masses. From radio, internet, television, newspapers, magazines, outdoor posters, signage and promotions, you could not escape the flu hype campaigns so diligently pursued by all the malicious agendas at play who only wanted one thing – to promote a dangerous H1N1 vaccine. After hundreds of reports exposed the criminal activity by all levels of government, we left the same people in power to do it all over again.

According to preliminary reports, another round of pandemic vaccine campaigns are scheduled for the 2010/2011 season and they’re already underway. However, there appears to be a recombination that has changed the H1N1 lab created virus into a more lethal form and it is not a hoax, but it may be yet another CDC lab experiment.

The CDC has recently issued a Health Advisory in connection with two summer outbreaks of H3N2 in Iowa. Other reports from Russia and India indicate that a real epidemic may be upon us if the virus steadily recombines and acquires new genetics. Even though a new strain may have accidentally evolved in eggs, reassortment of H1N1-H5N1 has been a legitimate concern for years. The WHO first suggested the reassortment of H1N1-H5N1 in 2004.

If this is really the case, how will the public react after all the lies from health agencies who have sworn to protect us? Will they hype another vaccine and if so, will the public even respond?

Body Scanners

They’ve been approved all over the world and marketed as the next greatest airport scanning technology. The U.S., U.K., Russia, Australia, Europe and Canada have all installed airport body scanners which have potentially devastating health effects.

Many of these scanners are reportedly using terahertz (THz) waves, the radiation that fills the slot in the electromagnetic spectrum between microwaves and infrared. Evidence suggests that although the forces generated are tiny, resonant effects allow THz waves to unzip double-stranded DNA, creating bubbles in the double strand that could significantly interfere with processes such as gene expression and DNA replication.

As the path toward rolling out wider use of whole-body scanners in U.S. airports ran through the White House, Obama expedited their deployment because the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and Transportation Security Administration (TSA) didn’t need legislation from Congress to start using the devices at any of the 560 U.S. airports.

The White House ignored all the scientific evidence presented which suggested negative health effects. Politicians and regulatory agencies then covered up the bad publicity on naked body scanners and focused on the presumed benefits under the guise of public safety.

Privacy commisioners and airport authorities have also insisted that there were no risks of images being stored or personal details being revealed to security screeners. Now there’s new evidence to show that the scanners can do just that.

According to a CNET report, another federal agency, the U.S. Marshall’s service, admitted that it had actually stored over 30,000 images recorded by a full-body scanner used at a Florida courthouse.

A watchdog group called the Electronic Privacy Information Center (EPIC) obtained over 100 of the images and states on its web site that, “The images, which are routinely captured by the federal agency, prove that body scanning devices store and record images of individuals stripped naked.” The group has filed a lawsuit to suspend the deployment of body scanners at airports.

EPIC also discovered that the TSA actually specified to manufacturers that the machines have the ability to send and store images. The TSA says that these functions are only for testing and training and insists on its web site that the airport body scanners are delivered to airports with storage and recording functions disabled.

Again, the upper levels of the echelon are caught lying and deceiving, yet they are still left to their own devices to further manipulate and continue misrepresenting facts to the gullible public.

BP Oil Disaster

When news unfolded about the April 20, 2010 BP oil disaster, it went from bad to worse. Instead of immediately mobilizing for action in the face of a massive public health threat, the response was to cover-up, deny and respond with ignorance. After all the public will always believe them, or so they thought.

The Obama administration, Interior Secretary Ken Salazar, U.S. Coast Guard commandant admiral Thad Allen, energy and climate-change policy adviser Carol Browner, BP and all their contituents conspired to deliberately mislead the public from the inception of the disaster to present day. What’s worse is they all agreed to further disseminate toxins in the Gulf by spraying 1.8 to 2 million gallons of the neurotoxin Corexit which was exposed by over a hundred scientists, toxicologists and other experts who have unequivocally classified the irresponsible aerial spraying of the chemical dispersant as a large-scale, uncontrolled non-consensual human and environmental experiment is being conducted in the Gulf region.

The media was grossly censoring the extent of the devastation in the Gulf. The poisons–oil and corexit are destined to spread globally, but honest reporting was and still is restricted, and many independent investigators have been arrested. Read 30 Facts Evidencing that The Gulf Oil Crisis Was Planned.

On June 12, 2010, The Institute of Atmospheric Sciences and Climate (ISAC) released “Risk of Global Climate Change By BP Oil Spill“, a document detailing how the BP spill may cause irreparable damage to the Gulf Stream global climate thermoregulation activity. Read Gulf Loop Current Destroyed: May Lead To Shut Down of Atlantic Thermoregulation, Rapid Cooling.

According to Dr. Gianluigi Zangari, an Italian theoretical physicist, and major complex and chaotic systems analyst at the Frascati National Laboratories in Italy, the Loop Current in the Gulf of Mexico has stalled as a consequence of the BP oil spill disaster. Zangari notes that the effects of this stall have also begun to spread to the Gulf Stream. This is because the Loop Current is a crucial element of the Gulf Stream itself and why it is commonly referred to as the “main engine” of the Stream.

The concern now, is whether or not natural processes can re-establish the stalled Loop Current. If not, we could begin to see global crop failures as early as 2011.

Zangari’s assessment is based on daily monitoring of real-time data oceanographic satellite public data feeds called “Real-Time Mesoscale Altimetry” from the Jason, Topex/Poseidon, Geosat, Follow-On, ERS-2 and Envisat satellites.

These satellite feeds are captured and made publicly available by NASA, NOAA and by the Colorado Center for Astrodynamics Research (CCAR) at the University of Colorado at Boulder.

The CCAR is now being accused of scientific fraud and tampering of data directly associated with the events surrounding the Loop Current phenomenon and its current anomalies. Various reporters have spear-headed the charge including radio personality Dr. Bill Deagle who has featured Dr. Zangari on his radio show The Nutrimedical Report where he detailed the events leading up to the destruction of the Loop Current in the Gulf.

Dr. Zangari has stated that he will no longer use CCAR data due to its unreliability.

Organized and Professional Disinformation Operations

Well-funded and highly-organized disinformation operations are in full-swing throughout the internet. From forums to comment boards and even professional websites that have only one purpose: Defame, distract, and destroy the truth.

However organized, the tactics are very predictable in a world filled with lies and half-truths. This, sadly, includes every day news media, one of the worst offenders with respect to being a source of disinformation.

Disinformation campaigns are launched against those seeking to uncover and expose the truth and/or the conspiracy. The H1N1 scandal was a prime example of how hundreds of operations can be launched to sway opinions on the facts. For every fact-based article on the realities of the H1N1 vaccine, there were both very primitive and sophisticated counters on message boards, comment forums and hundreds of alternative and mainstream websites.

Stephen Barrett’s Quackwatch.com and supporters such as skeptic.org.uk and skepticblog.com are examples of websites which promote both synthetic and organic disinformation on almost any topic that does not concur with mainstream thought.

There are specific tactics which disinfo artists tend to apply, as H. Michael Sweeney has brilliantly detailed. Also included with this material are eight common traits of the disinfo artist which may also prove useful in identifying players and motives. The more a particular party fits the traits and is guilty of following the rules, the more likely they are a professional disinfo artist with a vested motive. People can be bought, threatened, or blackmailed into providing disinformation, so even “good guys” can be suspect in many cases.

A rational person participating as one interested in the truth will evaluate that chain of evidence and conclude either that the links are solid and conclusive, that one or more links are weak and need further development before conclusion can be arrived at, or that one or more links can be broken, usually invalidating (but not necessarily so, if parallel links already exist or can be found, or if a particular link was merely supportive, but not in itself key) the argument. The game is played by raising issues which either strengthen or weaken (preferably to the point of breaking) these links. It is the job of a disinfo artist to interfere with these evaluation… to at least make people think the links are weak or broken when, in truth, they are not… or to propose alternative solutions leading away from the truth. Often, by simply impeding and slowing down the process through disinformation tactics, a level of victory is assured because apathy increases with time and rhetoric.

It would seem true in almost every instance, that if one cannot break the chain of evidence for a given solution, revelation of truth has won out. If the chain is broken either a new link must be forged, or a whole new chain developed, or the solution is invalid an a new one must be found… but truth still wins out. There is no shame in being the creator or supporter of a failed solution, chain, or link, if done with honesty in search of the truth. This is the rational approach. While it is understandable that a person can become emotionally involved with a particular side of a given issue, it is really unimportant who wins, as long as truth wins. But the disinfo artist will seek to emotionalize and chastise any failure (real or false claims thereof), and will seek by means of intimidation to prevent discussion in general.

It is the disinfo artist and those who may pull their strings (those who stand to suffer should the crime be solved) MUST seek to prevent rational and complete examination of any chain of evidence which would hang them. Since fact and truth seldom fall on their own, they must be overcome with lies and deceit. Those who are professional in the art of lies and deceit, such as the intelligence community and the professional criminal (often the same people or at least working together), tend to apply fairly well defined and observable tools in this process. However, the public at large is not well armed against such weapons, and is often easily led astray by these time-proven tactics. Remarkably, not even media and law enforcement have NOT BEEN TRAINED to deal with these issues. For the most part, only the players themselves understand the rules of the game.

Twenty-Five Rules of Disinformation

1. Hear no evil, see no evil, speak no evil. Regardless of what you know, don’t discuss it — especially if you are a public figure, news anchor, etc. If it’s not reported, it didn’t happen, and you never have to deal with the issues.

2. Become incredulous and indignant.

Avoid discussing key issues and instead focus on side issues which can be used to show the topic as being critical of some otherwise sacrosanct group or theme. This is also known as the ‘How dare you!’ gambit.

3. Create rumor mongers.

Avoid discussing issues by describing all charges, regardless of venue or evidence, as mere rumors and wild accusations. Other derogatory terms mutually exclusive of truth may work as well. This method works especially well with a silent press because the only way the public can learn of the facts are through such ‘arguable rumors’. If you can associate the material with the Internet, use this fact to certify it a ‘wild rumor’ from a ‘bunch of kids on the Internet’ which can have no basis in fact.

4. Use a straw man.

Find or create a seeming element of your opponent’s argument which you can easily knock down to make yourself look good and the opponent to look bad. Either make up an issue you may safely imply exists based on your interpretation of the opponent/opponent arguments/situation, or select the weakest aspect of the weakest charges. Amplify their significance and destroy them in a way which appears to debunk all the charges, real and fabricated alike, while actually avoiding discussion of the real issues.

5. Sidetrack opponents with name calling and ridicule.

This is also known as the primary ‘attack the messenger’ ploy, though other methods qualify as variants of that approach. Associate opponents with unpopular titles such as ‘kooks’, ‘right-wing’, ‘liberal’, ‘left-wing’, ‘terrorists’, ‘conspiracy buffs’, ‘radicals’, ‘militia’, ‘racists’, ‘religious fanatics’, ‘sexual deviates’, and so forth. This makes others shrink from support out of fear of gaining the same label, and you avoid dealing with issues.

6. Hit and Run.

In any public forum, make a brief attack of your opponent or the opponent position and then scamper off before an answer can be fielded, or simply ignore any answer. This works extremely well in Internet and letters-to-the-editor environments where a steady stream of new identities can be called upon without having to explain critical reasoning — simply make an accusation or other attack, never discussing issues, and never answering any subsequent response, for that would dignify the opponent’s viewpoint.

7. Question motives.

Twist or amplify any fact which could be taken to imply that the opponent operates out of a hidden personal agenda or other bias. This avoids discussing issues and forces the accuser on the defensive.

8. Invoke authority.

Claim for yourself or associate yourself with authority and present your argument with enough ‘jargon’ and ‘minutia’ to illustrate you are ‘one who knows’, and simply say it isn’t so without discussing issues or demonstrating concretely why or citing sources.

9. Play Dumb.

No matter what evidence or logical argument is offered, avoid discussing issues except with denials they have any credibility, make any sense, provide any proof, contain or make a point, have logic, or support a conclusion. Mix well for maximum effect.

10. Associate opponent charges with old news.

A derivative of the straw man — usually, in any large-scale matter of high visibility, someone will make charges early on which can be or were already easily dealt with – a kind of investment for the future should the matter not be so easily contained.) Where it can be foreseen, have your own side raise a straw man issue and have it dealt with early on as part of the initial contingency plans. Subsequent charges, regardless of validity or new ground uncovered, can usually then be associated with the original charge and dismissed as simply being a rehash without need to address current issues — so much the better where the opponent is or was involved with the original source.

11. Establish and rely upon fall-back positions.

Using a minor matter or element of the facts, take the ‘high road’ and ‘confess’ with candor that some innocent mistake, in hindsight, was made — but that opponents have seized on the opportunity to blow it all out of proportion and imply greater criminalities which, ‘just aren’t so.’ Others can reinforce this on your behalf, later, and even publicly ‘call for an end to the nonsense’ because you have already ‘done the right thing.’ Done properly, this can garner sympathy and respect for ‘coming clean’ and ‘owning up’ to your mistakes without addressing more serious issues.

12. Enigmas have no solution.

Drawing upon the overall umbrella of events surrounding the crime and the multitude of players and events, paint the entire affair as too complex to solve. This causes those otherwise following the matter to begin to lose interest more quickly without having to address the actual issues.

13. Alice in Wonderland Logic.

Avoid discussion of the issues by reasoning backwards or with an apparent deductive logic which forbears any actual material fact.

14. Demand complete solutions.

Avoid the issues by requiring opponents to solve the crime at hand completely, a ploy which works best with issues qualifying for rule 10.

15. Fit the facts to alternate conclusions.

This requires creative thinking unless the crime was planned with contingency conclusions in place.

16. Vanish evidence and witnesses.

If it does not exist, it is not fact, and you won’t have to address the issue.

17. Change the subject.

Usually in connection with one of the other ploys listed here, find a way to side-track the discussion with abrasive or controversial comments in hopes of turning attention to a new, more manageable topic. This works especially well with companions who can ‘argue’ with you over the new topic and polarize the discussion arena in order to avoid discussing more key issues.

18. Emotionalize, Antagonize, and Goad Opponents.

If you can’t do anything else, chide and taunt your opponents and draw them into emotional responses which will tend to make them look foolish and overly motivated, and generally render their material somewhat less coherent. Not only will you avoid discussing the issues in the first instance, but even if their emotional response addresses the issue, you can further avoid the issues by then focusing on how ‘sensitive they are to criticism.’

19. Ignore facts presented, demand impossible proofs.

This is perhaps a variant of the ‘play dumb’ rule. Regardless of what material may be presented by an opponent in public forums, claim the material irrelevant and demand proof that is impossible for the opponent to come by (it may exist, but not be at his disposal, or it may be something which is known to be safely destroyed or withheld, such as a murder weapon.) In order to completely avoid discussing issues, it may be required that you to categorically deny and be critical of media or books as valid sources, deny that witnesses are acceptable, or even deny that statements made by government or other authorities have any meaning or relevance.

20. False evidence.

Whenever possible, introduce new facts or clues designed and manufactured to conflict with opponent presentations — as useful tools to neutralize sensitive issues or impede resolution. This works best when the crime was designed with contingencies for the purpose, and the facts cannot be easily separated from the fabrications.

21. Call a Grand Jury, Special Prosecutor, or other empowered investigative body.

Subvert the (process) to your benefit and effectively neutralize all sensitive issues without open discussion. Once convened, the evidence and testimony are required to be secret when properly handled. For instance, if you own the prosecuting attorney, it can insure a Grand Jury hears no useful evidence and that the evidence is sealed an unavailable to subsequent investigators. Once a favorable verdict is achieved, the matter can be considered officially closed. Usually, this technique is applied to find the guilty innocent, but it can also be used to obtain charges when seeking to frame a victim.

22. Manufacture a new truth.

Create your own expert(s), group(s), author(s), leader(s) or influence existing ones willing to forge new ground via scientific, investigative, or social research or testimony which concludes favorably. In this way, if you must actually address issues, you can do so authoritatively.

23. Create bigger distractions.

If the above does not seem to be working to distract from sensitive issues, or to prevent unwanted media coverage of unstoppable events such as trials, create bigger news stories (or treat them as such) to distract the multitudes.

24. Silence critics.

If the above methods do not prevail, consider removing opponents from circulation by some definitive solution so that the need to address issues is removed entirely. This can be by their death, arrest and detention, blackmail or destruction of their character by release of blackmail information, or merely by destroying them financially, emotionally, or severely damaging their health.

25. Vanish.

If you are a key holder of secrets or otherwise overly illuminated and you think the heat is getting too hot, to avoid the issues, vacate the kitchen.

Eight Traits of the Disinformationalist

1) Avoidance

They never actually discuss issues head-on or provide constructive input, generally avoiding citation of references or credentials. Rather, they merely imply this, that, and the other. Virtually everything about their presentation implies their authority and expert knowledge in the matter without any further justification for credibility.

2) Selectivity

They tend to pick and choose opponents carefully, either applying the hit-and-run approach against mere commentators supportive of opponents, or focusing heavier attacks on key opponents who are known to directly address issues. Should a commentator become argumentative with any success, the focus will shift to include the commentator as well.

3) Coincidental

They tend to surface suddenly and somewhat coincidentally with a new controversial topic with no clear prior record of participation in general discussions in the particular public arena involved. They likewise tend to vanish once the topic is no longer of general concern. They were likely directed or elected to be there for a reason, and vanish with the reason.

4) Teamwork

They tend to operate in self-congratulatory and complementary packs or teams. Of course, this can happen naturally in any public forum, but there will likely be an ongoing pattern of frequent exchanges of this sort where professionals are involved. Sometimes one of the players will infiltrate the opponent camp to become a source for straw man or other tactics designed to dilute opponent presentation strength.

5) Anti-conspiratorial

They almost always have disdain for ‘conspiracy theorists’ and, usually, for those who in any way believe JFK was not killed by LHO. Ask yourself why, if they hold such disdain for conspiracy theorists, do they focus on defending a single topic discussed in a News Group (NG) focusing on conspiracies? One might think they would either be trying to make fools of everyone on every topic, or simply ignore the group they hold in such disdain. Or, one might more rightly conclude they have an ulterior motive for their actions in going out of their way to focus as they do.

6) Artificial Emotions

An odd kind of ‘artificial’ emotionalism and an unusually thick skin — an ability to persevere and persist even in the face of overwhelming criticism and unacceptance. This likely stems from intelligence community training that, no matter how condemning the evidence, deny everything, and never become emotionally involved or reactive. The net result for a disinfo artist is that emotions can seem artificial. Most people, if responding in anger, for instance, will express their animosity throughout their rebuttal.

But disinfo types usually have trouble maintaining the ‘image’ and are hot and cold with respect to pretended emotions and their usually more calm or unemotional communications style. It’s just a job, and they often seem unable to ‘act their role in character’ as well in a communications medium as they might be able in a real face-to-face conversation/confrontation.

You might have outright rage and indignation one moment, ho-hum the next, and more anger later — an emotional yo-yo. With respect to being thick-skinned, no amount of criticism will deter them from doing their job, and they will generally continue their old disinfo patterns without any adjustments to criticisms of how obvious it is that they play that game — where a more rational individual who truly cares what others think might seek to improve their communications style, substance, and so forth, or simply give up.

7) Inconsistent

There is also a tendency to make mistakes which betray their true self/motives. This may stem from not really knowing their topic, or it may be somewhat ‘freudian’, so to speak, in that perhaps they really root for the side of truth deep within.

I have noted that often, they will simply cite contradictory information which neutralizes itself and the author. For instance, one such player claimed to be a Navy pilot, but blamed his poor communicating skills (spelling, grammar, incoherent style) on having only a grade-school education. I’m not aware of too many Navy pilots who don’t have a college degree. Another claimed no knowledge of a particular topic/situation but later claimed first-hand knowledge of it.

8) Time Constant

There are three ways this can be seen to work, especially when the government or other empowered player is involved in a cover up operation:

  • ANY NG posting by a targeted proponent for truth can result in an IMMEDIATE response. The government and other empowered players can afford to pay people to sit there and watch for an opportunity to do some damage. SINCE DISINFO IN A NG ONLY WORKS IF THE READER SEES IT – FAST RESPONSE IS CALLED FOR, or the visitor may be swayed towards truth.
  • When dealing in more direct ways with a disinformationalist, such as email, DELAY IS CALLED FOR – there will usually be a minimum of a 48-72 hour delay. This allows a sit-down team discussion on response strategy for best effect, and even enough time to ‘get permission’ or instruction from a formal chain of command.
  • In the NG example 1) above, it will often ALSO be seen that bigger guns are drawn and fired after the same 48-72 hours delay – the team approach in play. This is especially true when the targeted truth seeker or their comments are considered more important with respect to potential to reveal truth. Thus, a serious truth sayer will be attacked twice for the same sin.

Remarkably, even media and law enforcement have NOT BEEN TRAINED to deal with these issues. For the most part, only the players themselves understand the rules of the game.

Christians In The Arab World: A Guide

Category : World Affairs

As Islamists come to power across much of the Middle East, Christians are facing growing persecution

 

Editors Note:

The author(s) of this article, unwittingly, did a great service to the cause of truth by helping to dispel the popular myth that all Arabs are Muslim.  The 10-12 million Arab Christian population figure revealed in the article is substantial and quite possibly, a conservative estimate.  To think that Islam is the religion practiced by all religious Arabs is to lose sight of the fact that the overwhelming majority of Muslims in the world are non-Arab.  So, kudos to the contributor(s) of this article for citing the 12 million Arab Christian population figure.  However, this article has a serious flaw, especially with regard to the false claims that allege an inherent hostile nature of Muslim peoples toward Christians.  Historically, the two groups have not always been on the best terms.  Be that as it may, the bigger issue which the article does not address are the shameful and hypocritical, Islamophobic  attitudes of America’s Christian Evangelical community, whose members are wont to blindly embrace the mythical “clash of civilizations” propaganda.  The aim of this anti-Islamic propaganda is to promote the notion that the two religions are diametrically opposed to each other and cannot coexist peacefully.  Though there has been a long history of periodic internecine conflict between Muslims and Christians, in recent years, (prior to post 911 US military intervention and occupation of Arab nations and the subsequent emergence of western funded groups like Al-Qaida and the Muslim Brotherhood), instances of violent acts against Christians and their sacred institutions and their forced migrations from their land were extremely rare.   Today, however, some Muslims in name only and in open defiance of every cardinal principle of the Islamic faith, allow themselves to be used as cannon fodder in the service of Israel and Washington to commit heinous crimes against Christian and other sectarian minorities.   All such atrocities visited upon the innocents by the enemies of Islam are not only designed to destroy the delicate but promising relationship between Muslims and Christians but serve to foster the notion that Islam and Muslims are inherently evil.  Thus the staging and provocaturing of human rights violations  by criminal Muslim elements employed by their western intelligence handlers has been the primary method of hijacking the pure Islamic religion.  As Israel and Washington continue to pursue their fraudulent war on terror against Islam, their illegal and immoral genocidal assaults (through their proxy intellegence operatives) against the beleaguered Christian populations of Syria, Palestine, Lebanon and Iraq elicit little, if any, sympathetic protests from the likes of Christian Evangelists Rick Warren, Rod Parsley, Joyce Meyer, John Hagee, Billy and Franklin Graham, James Dobson, T D Jakes and their large, delusional following. When it comes to the welfare of millions of Arab Christians victimized by Israeli-directed wars, these leaders betray their true, hypocritical, double-dealing nature by remaining conspicuously silent.  Arab Christians know that their greatest threat comes not from the traditional Muslim community but from the western backed Muslim Brotherhood and Al Qaeda operatives whose aim is to prevent the growth and development of true Islam in the region.  What’s the best solution for fostering healthy Muslim-Christian relations in the Middle East? Eliminate the political mischief of Israel and its minions in America and Great Britain from the global arena and the world will witness the long-awaited peaceful coexistence between followers of the world’s two largest religions.

How many Christians live in the Middle East?

Between 10 million and 12 million. The Middle East is the birthplace of Christianity and home to some of its oldest communities, but the Christian population has dropped dramatically over time, especially over the last decade. When Christianity was founded 2,000 years ago, it spread rapidly across the Roman Empire, into Egypt and westward. Mohammed began the Arab Muslim conquests in the 7th century, spreading Islam across the region, but he allowed Christians to continue practicing their religion. Christians remained a majority in parts of Iraq until the 14th century, when raids by Central Asian warlord Tamerlane decimated the community. The 20th century saw another precipitous drop, because of low birthrates and emigration among Christians. In 1900 Christians made up 25 percent of the population of the Middle East; by 2000 they were less than 5 percent. And then came the Iraq War.

What effect did that war have?

After the U.S.-led invasion of Iraq, sectarian tensions long kept in check by Saddam Hussein erupted into civil war between Sunnis and Shiites. Christians — Aramaic-speaking Assyrians with an ancient lineage — were caught in the cross fire. In the decade since the invasion, more than half of Iraq’s Christians have fled to refugee camps in Syria or Jordan, reducing a prewar population of more than a million to some 400,000, mostly in the relatively tolerant enclave of Iraqi Kurdistan. In October 2010, just a few months after U.S. combat troops left, militants of al Qaida in Iraq laid bloody siege to Our Lady of Deliverance Church in Baghdad during Sunday evening mass, killing 58 people and wounding 78 more. “This tragic event sent a powerful message to Christians in Iraq — they are in grave danger and should leave the country,” said Tiffany Barrans of the American Center for Law and Justice. Christians in Arab Spring countries would soon feel the same way.

Why did the Arab Spring alarm Christians?

Many Arab countries were ruled by secular dictatorships that ruthlessly repressed Islamic extremists and democrats alike. The revolts that began in Tunisia in late 2010 spread to Egypt, Libya, and then Syria. Many Christians declined to support the democratic uprisings, at least at first, because they feared that the fall of a dictator would mean the rise of an Islamist state. Once the dictators fell, Christians were branded anti-revolutionary and suffered a backlash. Islamists won large majorities in most of the post-revolutionary elections, and in some places, notably Egypt, they rewrote the constitution to give Islam a more central role in government and law.

How are Egypt’s Christians treated?

Egypt is home to the Copts, the Middle East’s largest Christian community, with some 8 million adherents. They consider themselves direct descendents of the ancient Egyptians, and still use the Coptic language, a derivative of ancient Egyptian, for religious services. Dictator Hosni Mubarak allied himself with the Coptic pope and protected the community in exchange for its support. Now Copts say the Muslim Brotherhood government of Mohammed Mursi is refusing to let them build churches and failing to crack down on a wave of violence against them. Islamic extremists bombed the Two Saints Coptic Church in Alexandria during the 2011 New Year’s mass, killing 23 people and strewing body parts around the church. Later that year, a huge mob of some 3,000 Muslims burned the St. George Church in Edfu and torched nearby Christian homes. When Christians protested outside the Maspero state TV center in Cairo in October 2011, soldiers brutally attacked protesters, killing 27. “Maspero completely traumatized the Coptic community,” said Heba Morayef, the director of Human Rights Watch in Egypt. “Feeling they were not protected by the law has created a climate of fear.” Fear has also taken hold in the war zones of Mali (see below) and Syria.

What is happening in Syria?

Some of the world’s oldest churches are in Syria, and until recently so were about 2.5 million Christians. For all its political repression, the country’s Baathist dictatorship did at least guarantee freedom of worship, so when the uprising against President Bashar al-Assad began two years ago, most Christians sided with the regime or remained neutral. Now that Islamist extremists are joining the rebels in what has become a civil war, some 300,000 Syrian Christians have fled the country, and more will likely follow. “Everyone is afraid of these extremists,” said George Nashawati, head of an Orthodox charity in Damascus. “Look what happened in Iraq. It could happen here.”

How has the U.S. responded?

It has strongly condemned attacks on Christians, but it has not gone beyond rhetoric. The U.S. Commission on International Religious Freedom, a bipartisan federal government body, has recommended that the State Department list Egypt and Iraq as severe religious freedom violators, like Iran, which aggressively persecutes Christians, or Saudi Arabia, which bans all non-Islamic religions. But the White House has so far refused. U.S. Rep. Frank Wolf (R-Va.), who recently traveled to Egypt, said Copts believe that the U.S. has made a bargain with the Muslim Brotherhood. “The feeling is that as long as the Brotherhood protects the United States’ interests in the region, it can act with impunity within its borders,” Wolf said.

Christians flee Mali

Mali had no Arab Spring uprising, but it has seen a fierce Islamist insurgency. In 2012 Salafist extremists linked to al Qaida took over in the north, where they destroyed churches along with Muslim shrines. Islamist rebels singled out the small Christian minority for torture and summary executions, and as many as 200,000 Christians from Mali fled to refugee camps in Algeria and Mauritania. “I deplore the departure of the Christian community,” said Timbuktu Mayor Ousmane Halle, a moderate Muslim, shortly after the Islamists invaded his town. “But I cannot guarantee their safety. And these are people that have lived side by side with us for centuries.”

Frantic Push For Gun Control Driven By Fraud and Hypocrisy

Category : World Affairs

One of the strongest indicators of the imminent collapse of a nation is evident when every new policy enacted, every new law legislated and every executive order issued, consistently runs contrary to what is in the best interest of its law-abiding citizens.  An excellent example of major changes being proposed by the legislative and executive branches of the US Government designed to impose more limits on the freedoms of Americans, lies in the push to ban all private ownership of automatic and semi-automatic weapons.

To abridge the rights of citizens in the private sector to own and bear arms is an open defiance of the liberties guaranteed by the United States Constitution and Bill of Rights.  Under the pretext of saving American lives, such a restriction would render Americans helpless and incapable of defending themselves against criminals who, because they will unequivocally defy any gun-restricting law, remain free to menace communities with criminal activities like robbery and aggravated assault.

Little Known Consequences Gun Confiscation

Every man and woman have not only the right but a God-given duty to defend themselves, family and neighbors against threats posed by any adversary, whether foreign or domestic.  No government that truly serves the people will ever place restrictions on the rights of its law-abiding citizens to defend themselves, regardless of race, class or religious affiliation.  History and current events teach us that any program of gun confiscation endorsed by a government represents the clearest sign of the emergence of a dictatorship.  In virtually every case citizen disarmament has resulted in the genocide of tens of millions of innocent people.

Regrettably, most of the law-abiding, pro gun proponents of the Second Amendment are decent Americans but are staunch opponents of Islam and convinced that Muslims are that proverbial fifth column which poses the greatest threat to America’s future.  Regardless of what Right-Wing, Tea Party one may think of Muslims, they are the last people who would ever desire to take away American’s Second Amendment rights.  The Jewish controlled western media should take credit for having implanted such fraudulent pieces of disinformation in the minds of a largely naive, dumbed-down, brainwashed, politically inept American public.  Unfortunately, the typical American customarily falls prey to the endless media-driven mind games designed to keep the people in an endless state of deep slumber.

However, despite the mainstream media’s negative portrayal of Islam and Muslims globally, many so-called gun-loving, gun-toting American would be taken aback to learn the extent to which Shariah law fully supports the provisions embodied in the Second Amendment.

An individual’s right to self-defense and protection of personal affects is a God-given right which is a hallmark of the Islamic faith. The Holy Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) did not live nor die by the sword but urged his followers to adopt violence only as a means of protection from any form of aggression against their person, families or properties. The use of violence under the leadership of the Holy Prophet was always in strict accordance with the Word of God as written in the Holy Qur’an.  The following three verses clearly illustrate this point:

Permission (to take up arms) is granted to those who are fighting because they have been oppressed…those who have been expelled from their homes without any just cause…” (Surah al-Hajj, 22:39-40)

“Fight in the way of God those who are fighting against you; and do not exceed (the limits). Verily Allãh does not love those who exceed (the limits).”  (Surah al-Baqara, 2:190)

“Prepare against them (i.e., the enemy) with whatever force and trained horses you can in order to frighten thereby Allãh’s enemy, your enemy, and others besides them who you do not know but Allãh knows them.” (Surah al-Anfal, 8:60)

The prevalence of the sword, spear, knife, and bow and arrow during the time of the Holy Prophet were the crude equivalents of today’s firearms.  Had the Muslims adopted a policy of banning all weapons none of the battles fought for the establishment Islam could have been won and the religion would have been eradicated, save for some miraculous, divinely sanctioned intervention to rescue the day.

But there is nothing contained in the Shariah that states that the use of weapons should be limited to engagements on the battle field.  Even after all the battles had been won and Islam was firmly established throughout Arabia, sword ownership along with other forms of weaponry were common throughout the Muslim communities and were routinely employed as a means of hunting and gathering, as well as tools for self defense.  This natural right to possess arms is the license  that Allah has provided all just people, so that they may be prepared for the unexpected.  This natural right is an effective  safety precaution and the excercising of this right is the best common-sense deterrent to unjust threats and possible assaults from the enemy.  Research shows that people with a predilection to violent criminal behavior are often deterred from the commission of such acts when they know their potential victims are well armed and fortified within their homes.

 

 Banning Guns Is Not The Solution To Curbing Violent Crime

 

In 1982 the city of Chicago instituted a general ban on handguns except for those previously registered before the ban took effect. Since the ban the number of murders in Chicago committed using handguns has been 40% higher than before the ban, and has been on a steady rise, adding further strength to the argument that banning guns will actually cause a steady increase in violent crime.

In comparison, let’s take a look at Britain, which has some of the strictest gun control laws in the developed world. Given that one of the most vocal advocates for gun control in the aftermath of Sandy Hook has been a British citizen – Piers Morgan – who has used his platform on CNN to attack the second amendment, the contrast is illuminating

Thus, a well armed citizenry is the best solution to the problem of violent crime.  With private gun ownership being at an all-time high, thanks to record gun sales over the last five years, one could easily anticipate a dramatic increase in incidents of violent crime in America.  However, the opposite is true:  violent crime rates have actually plunged dramatically.

Many social scientists argue that more private gun ownership will ultimately lead to more accidents because the average citizen is not sufficiently trained in the proper use of a firearm.  While it is true that gun-related accidents do occur, the Cato study indicates that they are the most overstated risks. There were 535 accidental firearms deaths in 2006 within a population of almost 300 million people.  It is true that every lost life is a tragic affair but untimely deaths attributed to the accidental discharge of firearms is relatively insignificant.

On the other hand, Newsweek has reported that law-abiding American citizens using guns in self-defense during 2003 shot and killed two and one-half times as many criminals as police did, and with fewer than one-fifth as many incidents as police where an innocent person mistakenly identified as a criminal (2% versus 11%).  It is ironic that while the ongoing national debate about gun violence in America surges forward, violent crime itself is actually becoming less of a problem nationwide according to FBI uniform crime reports.  Notwithstanding the unprecedented, record breaking sales in firearms, over a 20 year period, gun related violence has declined over 49%.  Yet the mainstream media and the Obama Administration carefully avoids broadcasting these startling statistics to the American public.

Hollywood Con Artists Used As Pawns to Sell Gun Control Agenda

 

Many Hollywood actors can be some of the most despicable self-serving, narcissistic phonies in American society.  Their eagerness to sell their souls to the highest bidder in exchange for money and fame, knows no bounds. The following anti-gun promotional video reveals actors who are either hopelessly naive and ignorant of the facts surrounding guns and violence in American society or are virtual government shills posing as innocent humanitarians to destroy our rights to own and bear arms. The first video shows a large number of actors who demand that immediate action be taken to stop gun violence.

 

 

 

Now, carefully watch these same actors after the same video that has been professionally spliced with scenes from their very own movies.  These actors want to your guns while they make millions glorifying gun violence.  Please take note on how they revel in the art of intimidation and verbalizing threats of violence just seconds before they embark on a vicious rampage of merciless, irresponsible and senseless, murder and mass killing.  These blood-curdling assaults are carried out using an array of weapons, including controversial, fully automatic assault rifles.  Then, you be the judge.  Are these actors genuine dupes or abominable, self-seeking hypocrites?

 

 

When we observe them in the real world we discover many stars, like the average citizen, have opted to carry concealed weapons and/or hire weapon-toting bodyguards for one reason and one reason only:  to protect themselves from violent assault.

If you think the abhorrent hypocrisy displayed by Hollywood actors was not offensive enough the cunning and in-your-face hypocrisy of many American politicians are even more obscene.  Like global warming hypocrite Al Gore who warned us about the threat of the flooding of coastlines due to the eminent rise in oceans across the globe.  Nonetheless, that warning didn’t discourage him and his wife from purchasing an $8,875,000 an ocean-view villa right on the California coastline.  Take the case of Tea Party Rep. Scott DesJarlais (R-Tenn.), a strong supporter of pro-life and ran on a pro-life platform; he had illicit sex with one of his patients while working as a physician.  After the patient became pregnant with his child he succeeded in convincing her to get an abortion.  For public consumption Congressman DesJarlais can continue his fight to make it more difficult for women with whom he is not sleeping to obtain abortions.

Returning to the theater of gun control, the level of in-your-face hypocrisy continues to grow off the charts:  Michael Moore, a staunch advocate of strict gun control, is always accompanied by a powerful entourage of gun-toting bodyguards.  He, like almost every anti gun advocate, also owns and packs a personal firearm but arrogantly advises the public to get a dog instead.  Let’s not forget Vice President Biden’s ludricous, irresponsible and even possible criminal recommendation (it is a felony of recless indangerment to discharge a weapon in a public space) to all concerned women who want to protect themselves from intruders: get a double-barrel shotgun and fire two blasts outside the house or even through the door!  Then there is Bill Gates, while being a strong advocate of gun control to save lives, sees nothing hypocritical about financially supporting programs of forced vaccinations to wipe out most of the world population.   However, one of the most blatant displays of double-standard hypocrisy can be seen in the following video that shows Senator Dianne Feinstein, a hard core opponent of Second Amendment rights for American citizens, defending her own right to bear arms when her life was in danger:

 


 

To those Americans who believe in the responsible ownership of firearms for the purpose of self defense, hunting and the necessity of the right to bear arms for the security of a free State, this is the irrationality and failed logic we face as we enter an unprecedented Constitutional battle.

Many of these people calling for a plan to end gun violence seem to ignore the fact that they themselves are proponents of the very senseless violence they are advocating the prevention of.

Just like the politicians who would strip us of our right to bear arms, many anti-gun advocates have concealed carry permits, often accompanied by armed bodyguards and always require that armed security be present at events that they attend.

 

Race and Class Discrimination Were The Original Motive For Gun Control

 

But let us get down to the real nuts and bolts of the government’s anti-gun movement.  Any government that embarks on a campaign to disarm its citizens is a government that is truly the enemy of the people. The entire history of gun control in America is rife with racism, cynicism and hypocrisy.  Ulterior motives that lie at the heart of America’s efforts to limit and ultimately ban private gun ownership have absolutely nothing to do with keeping the public safe but rather exercising power to limit the inalienable rights and freedoms guaranteed by the Constitution and Bill of Rights.

The core of the history of gun control in America is rooted in the ugly agenda of discrimination and oppression of blacks, other non-white minorities, migrant workers and political activists. Thus, gun control laws were often enacted to disarm and facilitate repressive action against these groups.

The first gun control laws were enacted in the ante-bellum South. They forbade blacks, whether free or slave, the right to legally possess fire arms, in order to maintain blacks in a perpetual state of servitude and vulnerability to unprovoked racially motivated attacks by police-protected, bigoted white citizens. FPOGSDAfter the Civil War, the South continued to pass restrictive firearms laws in order to deprive the newly freed blacks from exercising their rights of citizenship. In the sixties additional laws restricting gun ownership were designed to suppress the social and political activities of the black civil rights movement.

Presently, the government’s on going push for gun control and restriction of the Second Amendment is no longer limited to African Americans and other social activists.  It has now grown to include provisions for the ultimate disarming of all American citizens, regardless of race, class or political perspective.

The Obama administration has demonstrated an unwavering perseverance to engage in all sorts of intrigue in order to create the political climate needed to support its drive to dismantle the Second Amendment, while declaring open season on the average disarmed American citizen according to Attorney General Eric Holder.  According to a treasonous and politically compromised Mr. Holder, President Barack Obama has the authority to use, at his discretion, weaponized drones to kill US citizens on American soil. That disclosure, combined with the fact that the US Government has purchased two billion rounds of hollow point ammunition since April, 2012 raises much suspicion.  Not only are hollow point bullets declared illegal even in war, the number recently bought by the government is enough needed to shoot each American five times or wage a 30 year civil war!  Do these intimidating postures indicative of a government that cares about its people or betray the governments real motives behind their push to destroy the Second Amendment?  Is there any wonder why gun and ammunition purchases by Americans distrustful of their government have skyrocketed in recent years? Is there any wonder why decent, law-abiding, God-fearing citizens are fighting feverishly to protect their Second Amendment rights?

 

It’s Not No Guns But The Lack Of Guns That Encourage Crime

 

One of the best pieces of evidence to debunk the popular narrative that an expansion of gun ownership places American cities in great peril can be observed when monitoring the results of unprecedented spikes in gun sales since inauguration of President Obama in 2008.  A dramatic, record-breaking increase in guns sales across North America saw a corresponding dramatic decline in violent crime.  Gun sales, alone, in 2009 exceeded 14 million.  That figure was the largest since the FBI’s National Instant Background Check System (NICS) began recording data in 1998.

There is no public threat posed by responsible, law-abiding American citizens owning guns.  The problem arises when firearms fall into the hands of irresponsible law-breakers who, because they fear no threat from a disarmed citizenry are undeterred from engaging in criminal activity.  Criminals will always arm themselves, regardless of what laws are legislated.  That being said, the only sensible thing to do to help ensure the stability and safety of society is to remove all restrictions to gun ownership for law-abiding citizens.  The arguments put forth by proponents for gun control have consistently been shown to be weak and unsound.  In contrast, the sound, fact-based arguments articulated by supporters of the legalization of firearms have shown that responsible gun ownership not only results in lower crime rates but can actually create a social climate that can serve as an effective deterrent to crime.

Despite the inherent shallowness in its arguments in favor of nullifying the Secnd Amendment, the Obama Administration wants us to believe that its drive to disarm Americans is motivated solely by its concern for their safety and well being. Unfortunately, a substantial number of Americans have, by virtue of mainstream media propaganda, unwittingly fallen for this deception.  Anyone foolish enough to believe such a deceitful narrative is totally unaware that the American political machine has been the one primarily responsible for staging most of the mass shootings and false flag terrorist attacks committed in recent years. The disturbing truth about these attacks is that many of them are used as a means to trigger such fear and indignation that the misinformed public will be conditioned to embrace the notion that destruction of the Second Amendment is the only viable solution to urban violence.

 

The Obama Administration Feigns Concern About Public Safety

 

So much for government pretense.  In closing, let us take a quick look at government hypocrisy as it relates to its desire protect public safety.  If the Obama Administration is so obsessed with saving American lives as it relates to gun violence then why is it mute on the issue of massive fluoride contamination of our water and food supplies?  Fluoride contamination is so toxic and pervasive that, in addition to lowering IQ and causing infertility, it is one of the leading causes of cancer.  If the Obama Administration is so concerned about public safety, why does it not demand that the FDA stop pressuring health care professionals to force inoculate infants, pregnant women and school children with flu vaccines contaminated with dangerous chemicals and cancer viruses?  If the Obama Administration is so worried about the welfare and safety of the American people, why is there no move by the government to ban aspartame (a deadly exito toxin and a leading cause of cancer) from our food and beverage supply?

If guns should be banned even when there is no proof that their use in the hands of law-abiding citizens poses a threat to public safety, then dangerous chemicals added to our water, food and vaccines that have been proven, following extensive clinical research, to be extremely carcinogenic should also be banned. If the US government was sincere about its concern for the safety of Americans it would have worked to protect the Delaney amendment to the Federal Food, Drugs, and Cosmetic Act of 1958. This amendment stipulated that leaders of the food, water and drug industries conduct their affairs so as to remain in strict accordance with the guidelines established by the late Congressman James Delaney.

It is obvious the government has no genuine concern about your safety.  That being said, what about your local police officer?  Not much hope there either, seeing that the Supreme Court has ruled that your local police do not have a constitutional duty to protect a person from harm. Thus, if anyone still entertains any doubts about how critically important it is for us to be armed and to not depend on the police for advice or protection, just watch the insane responses given by the police:

 

Each American Must Take Personal Responsibility

The facts don’t lie.  Where there is more gun ownership there is less crime.  Period.  All the supporting documented evidence has been already been suffuciently sited.  The stories of guns being used to save lives and property in America each year number in the hundreds of thousands.  Yet the national media deliberately avoids mentioning.  Instead they focus only on guns being used by thugs engaged in criminal activity or individuals on dangerous psychotropic drugs who carry out staged mass shootings.  Many of the accounts provided by thousands of people about how their lives were saved because of having access to firearms are so compelling and breathtaking, the consequences of national media coverage to them would expose the entire campaign for gun control as a fraud and ultimately derail both Washington’s and Hollywood’s concerted push for citizen disarmament.  It is not only a fight to save the Second Amendment.  This movement is about protecting your God-given rights to protect yourself and your loved-ones all forms of danger.
