Standing unashamedly for the King James Bible GOVERNMENT HIRES ISLAMIC GROUP TO DO SECURITY TRAINING January 18, 2007 (Edited by DCB) "The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) recently boasted on its website that all 45,000 of its screeners had received cultural sensitivity training in Islamic traditions related to the Hajj, or pilgrimage to Mecca in Saudi Arabia. The TSA employees' special training includes information about the timing of pilgrimage travel, items Islamic pilgrims may be carrying, and Islamic prayers that security personnel may observe while screening Muslims traveling from America to Mecca." The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) provided this "cultural sensitivity training" and "describes itself as America's largest Islamic civil liberties group. Its mission, in the organization's own words, includes working to ‘enhance the understanding of Islam,’ to empower American Muslims and protect their civil rights, and to build coalitions ‘that promote justice and mutual understanding.’"

Editor’s Comment: Why are governments of the West seemingly pacifying Muslim organizations such a CAIR? According to Daniel Pipes at "...organizations that fund terrorism also fund CAIR. The Saudi-based Islamic Development Bank gave CAIR $250,000 in August 1999. The IDB also manages funds (Al-Quds, Al-Aqsa) which finance suicide bombings against Israeli civilians by providing funds to the families of Palestinian ‘martyrs.’",22049,21074676-5001021,00.html SYDNEY CLERIC PREACHES HATE 18 January 2007 (Edited by DCB) AUSTRALIA "SYDNEY'S most influential radical Muslim cleric has been caught on film calling Jews pigs and urging children to die for Allah." Sheik Feiz Mohammed is the head of the Global Islamic Youth Centre. Mohammed who was born here in Australia "delivered the hateful rants on a collection of DVDs called the Death Series being sold here and overseas." On these he said "Today many parents, they prevent their children from attending lessons. Why? They fear that they might create a place in the their hearts, the love, just a bit of the love, of sacrificing their lives for Allah." He said parents should put in their children’s "soft, tender hearts the zeal of jihad and a love of martyrdom." It is interesting that "Sheik Feiz left for Lebanon just before the arrest of 23 men in Sydney and Melbourne in November 2005" on suspicions to links with terrorism.

Editor’s Comment: The University of Southern California lists Ten Misconceptions About Islam at "Misconception 1 Islam is `the religion of peace' because: the Arabic word Islam is derived from the Arabic word "Al-Salaam" which means peace. It might seem strange to think of this as a misconception, but in fact it is. The root word of Islam is "al-silm" which means "submission" or "surrender." It is understood to mean "submission to Allah." In spite of whatever noble intention has caused many a Muslim to claim that Islam is derived primarily from peace, this is not true. Allah says in the Qur'an (translated): [2:136] Say (O Muslims): We believe in Allah and that which is revealed to us and that which was revealed to Abraham, and Ishmael, and Isaac, and Jacob, and the tribes, and that which Moses and Jesus received, and that which the prophets received from their Lord. We make no distinction between any of them, and to Him we have surrendered. [Arabic "Muslimoon"] A secondary root of Islam may be "Al-Salaam" (peace), however the text of the Qur'an makes it clear that Allah has clearly intended the focus

of this way of life to be submission to Him. This entails submission to Him at all times, in times of peace, war, ease, or difficulty." 15 January, 2007 SAUDIS MAY BAN LETTER ‘X’ (Edited by DCB) "A group of Islamic clergy in Saudi Arabia has condemned the letter "X" because of its similarity to a hated banned symbol – the cross." The final say in all legal, civil and governance matters in Saudi Arabia is The Commission for the Promotion of Virtue and Prevention of Vice. Its verdict was against the "X". This verdict "came in response to a Ministry of Trade query about whether a Saudi businessman could be granted trademark protection for a new service with the English name ‘Explorer.’" A Saudi businessman had made an enquiry as to whether he could obtain trademark protection for a new service with the English name "Explorer". The "experts" after examining the word "were struck by how suspicious that ‘X’ appeared." The businessman’s request was denied. The Commission for the Promotion of Virtue and Prevention of Vice, which has the ultimate say in all legal, civil and governance matters in the kingdom, issued a fatwa, or religious edict, against the "X." It came in response to a Ministry of Trade query about whether a Saudi businessman could be granted trademark protection for a new service with the English name "Explorer." The request from the businessman, Amru Mohammad Faisal, was turned down. Saudi Arabia is supposedly an alie of the USA and Australia in the war on terror and yet it is "a kingdom where Friday preachers routinely refer to Christians as pigs and infidel crusaders, even a twisted cross ranks as an abomination." 4 January 2007 IS CHRISTIANITY INSENSITIVE TO OTHER RELIGIONS? (Edited by DCB) ST. LOUIS, Mo. – In December Urbana 2006 gathered together over 20,000 "Christian" young people to hear missionary challenges from various speakers. One of the speakers was Hussam Fakhoury of International Fellowship of Evangelical Students. He is "an Arab Christian from Jordan." Fakhoury said "When Christians preach that Jesus died on the cross or about the triune God to the Muslim world, he says that's being ‘insensitive.’"

Editor’s Comment: 2Timothy 4: 2 "Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine."
