As Iran hardliners continue to chant “death to America,” President Barack Obama is on the verge of getting congressional approval for his controversial Iranian nuclear agreement.
Support from Sens. Chris Coons, D-Del., and Bob Case, D-Pa., means the president is one vote away from clinching victory in the Senate.
Despite furious opposition, 33 senators have now backed the deal. The president needs 34 to uphold his veto of a Republican measure disproving the agreement. Congress has till September 17 to vote for or against it.
At the State Department, officials continued to stress Obama’s statement that the U.S. would impose further sanctions should Iran change its behavior toward the deal — and that it prevents Iran from becoming a nuclear power.
CLAAS Press Release – 3 August 2015
Gujranwala’s Anti-terrorist court has denied bail to all Christians’ bail but granted it to Muslim Zulfiqar who printed the posters.
On 1st September CLAAS lawyers Tahir Bashir appeared in the Anti-terrorist court of Gujranwala for the confirmation of bail, but the Judge, Bushra Zaman, rejected all of Christians’ bail but granted it bail to Muslim man Zulfiqar, who printed the posters in question.
These posters are said to have offended some local Muslims by using the word Rasool (Apostle) for late Pastor Fazal Masih, the founder of the Biblical Church of God.
They took this matter to the police, civil lines, where a case was registered against 14 people, including one Muslim, Zulfiqar.
ISIS, or the Islamic State, is in the news every day. The brutal terrorist army burst on the scene in 2014 when it gobbled up huge swaths of territory in Iraq and Syria.
Today, ISIS controls a land area the size of Great Britain and is the wealthiest jihadist organization in the world.
As ISIS expands, it brings with it chaos and savagery everywhere it goes, beheading its enemies, destroying cultural artifacts and treasures, and displacing millions of Christians and other non-Muslims.
Despite all that we do know about ISIS, the terror group remains shrouded in mystery. Who are they? What do they believe? Why do they hate America?
Robert Spencer, a leading terror expert, answers these questions and more while exposing the blood-drenched history and mysterious inner workings of the Islamic State in his latest book, The Complete Infidel’s Guide to ISIS. The book provides an essential primer to comprehending one of the world’s most dangerous enemies.
“As the President of Rise Up Australia Party, I call on all people to promote love and free speech, not violence of any sort.”11 Comments Published by Office 2 October 6th, 2015 in Australia, Bible, Christian Church Issues, Courage, Free Speech, Freedom of Religion, Insight Into Islam, Islam, Multiculturalism, Muslims, Political Correctness, Politics, Politics, Rise Up Australia, Saudi Arabia, Vilification Case
Neither will anything stop me from loving people, including Muslims. The good book, the Bible, states in Mathew 5:44,”But I say to you, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you”.
We cannot and must not respond to HATRED with HATE, as we cannot lower ourselves to the place of some teachings in the Koran.
I strongly condemn the teachings of Islam as it is nothing but a death cult. Parts of the Koran are the cause of Islamic violence. Our leaders need to stop being politically correct and covering up. They need to state the facts.
The attacks that have been taking place are not lone wolf attacks or people gone crazy. No, rather this is Islam 101.
I lived in Saudi Arabia and witnessed it first hand when I was made to watch saw 3 people beheaded in cold blood right in front of the main mosque.
This was not ISIS nor Al-Qaeda, but simply Sharia law in action by the Saudi government.
The worst enemy of Muslims is Islam itself and not the West.
As the President of Rise Up Australia Party, I call on all people to promote love and free speech, not violence of any sort.
This is true democracy built on Judeo-Christian Values.”

On October 10, 2008, the Victorian Parliament passed the Abortion Law Reform Act, one of the most extreme abortion laws in the world. This law eliminated all legal protection for Victorian children until the moment of birth.
In remembrance of this shameful day, we gather to march for the babies who never see the light of day in Victoria. The babies of every one in three pregnancies. The more than 20,000 babies killed in Victoria every year.
Together we express our profound disapproval with our Government’s failure to:
- Protect the fundamental right to life of every person in our state.
- Offer real help to women in crisis pregnancies, and others who have suffered through abortion.
- Allow freedom of conscience for our health care professionals.
Our goal is to overturn this terrible law and provide full legal protection to our most vulnerable Victorians.
Please join us, as we march in this peaceful witness to life, from Treasury Gardens to Parliament House, and hear inspirational speakers and music with a message of courage and hope.
There’s a long road ahead, but we shall overcome!

Even Christians in Egypt are encouraged to hate Jews. In writing essays, for example, the more vitriol you could express against them the higher marks you would get.

ESPN commentor Stephen A. Smith slammed the Black Lives Matter movement on Twitter and his show Tuesday, as Politistick reports.
Smith, a man who has never been afraid to go against the grain of the black Democrat narrative, was commenting upon the controversy about Martin O’Malley being shouted down by Black Lives Matter protesters who were outraged that the Democrat presidential candidate asserted that “all lives matter.” That wasn’t an acceptable stance to the protesters.
Smith expressed his irritation on Twitter, calling out the Black Lives Matter movement for their hypocritical silence regarding black-on-black crimes in Democrat Party-controlled cities:
On The Stephen A. Smith Show, he began, “Let me preface my comments by saying I am fully aware of the fact that no one white can say what I’m about to say. But damn it, I’m going to say it!”
Democrat presidential candidate Martin O’Malley apologized on Saturday. Ladies and gentlemen, guess why he apologized? Because during a discussion in front of an abundance of African-Americans, he said ‘all lives matter’ as opposed to ‘black lives matter.’

US leader stands accused of the same bullying he himself denounced on eve of African trip.
President Barack Obama’s cajoling of Kenyan leaders to accept “LGBT rights” has met with a notable backlash from African bishops and other state and religious leaders, with one African bishop drawing attention to the hypocrisy of Obama’s LGBT agenda.
Obama arrived in Kenya for a two-day visit on Friday, his first visit to his father’s homeland as US president, before heading to Ethiopia on Sunday for a one-day visit. At a joint press conference held with Kenyan President Uhuru Kenyatta on Saturday, Obama advocated for his administration’s pro-LGBT agenda, comparing Kenya’s policy toward gays to the treatment of blacks in the United States prior to the civil rights movement.
“As an African American in the United States, I am painfully aware of the history of what happens when people are treated differently under the law. There were all sorts of rationalizations that were provided by the power structure for decades in the United States for segregation and they were wrong,” he said.

More than 2,000 locals who were driven out of their hometown of Homs, Syria, returned on July 12 to witness a moment of sweet triumph as a young couple married inside the wreckage of their beloved church.
The Daily Mail is reporting on the bitter sweet story of Fadi and Rana, 28, two refugees of the years-long Syrian civil war, who met in a refugee camp. Fadi, a university graduate who was working at a pharmaceutical factory in the city before he was forced to flee, fell in love with Rana while they were both working for the U.N. Refugee Agency.
When they decided to marry, the two wanted the ceremony to be where they had always dreamed it would be – inside their hometown church, St. George’s, an Orthodox church in the Christian Hamidiyah section of Homs.
Unfortunately, when the couple returned to their old neighborhood, they found the church and almost every other building, reduced to rubble. Almost nothing was left of the beautiful St. George church except the old stone walls. Everything else, the roof, the ornate interior, the pews, were all gone.
Live Webcast with International Messianic Jewish Leader Jonathan Settel at CTFM this Sun 4th October1 Comment Published by Office 2 October 1st, 2015 in Australia, Israel, Jesus, Jews, Messianic Jews, Yeshua
The time to live the unity of the Scriptures has arrived. Through the music of Settel International Ministries, both Gentiles and Jews can touch the Heart of God and feel the arms of Messiah Yeshua surround them.
The anointing that knows no boundaries or status is a common denominator; the one place where we see more with our eyes closed, than with them opened. Welcome to the world of worship where we seek to bless The King.
Jonathan is a man after the heart of God. He ministers extensively worldwide, bringing us back to our Jewish roots through Messianic expressions of worship and teachings.
Jonathan’s travels have taken him to many countries as well as a variety of Christian and Messianic Congregations. The passion of this ministry is to see the Body of Messiah unite and in so doing exposes Anti-Semitism within the Church. Many have wept in repentance upon altar calls, releasing the Genesis 12:3 blessing.
You may read more on his website at http://www.settel.org/
Please note that this service will be live webcast at www.catchthefire.com.au beginning at 10.30am (AEDT).
Ps Daniel will be present and praying for people at both the 10am morning & 6:30pm services.
Ps Daniel, with a team, spoke and ministered in Mildura over the last weekend.
His inspiring messages focused on his political journey thus far and what he believes will be the inevitable for Australia if Aussies will not recognize the developing multicultural trend of Islam in this country.
Sighting the persecution that is currently happening in Europe especially the plight of the Christians due to the current invasion of Islamic Refugees, Ps Daniel urged us all to be vigilant. Islamic populations in some parts of Europe have swollen to a disturbing 25%.
Also, completely unexpected, a prominent Melbourne journalist, writer and Radio / TV presenter, who has been following the activities of Pastor Daniel for some time, walked into the meeting on Saturday.
At the end of the meeting, he was so touched that he talked with Ps Daniel for more than 1 hr and then gave his heart to the Lord Jesus when Ps Daniel laid hands and prayed for him. He came to church on Sunday morning and spent more than 3 hours in the presence of God and with Christian believers.

Slightly more than half of men (51 percent) say they support Israeli statehood, compared to a third (33 percent) of women.

Most believe God has plans for that nation, both now and in the future. And many of America’s preachers say Christians need to support Israel.
Those are among the findings of a LifeWay study of American attitudes toward Israel and the Bible. As part of the study, researchers conducted two separate surveys of 1,000 Americans, along with a survey of 1,000 senior pastors of Protestant churches.
“No piece of literature has had more impact on American culture than the Bible,” said Scott McConnell, vice president of LifeWay Research. “No country is more intertwined with the ancient Biblical narrative than Israel, and evangelical Americans see a contemporary connection with the nation.”
All countries in the region can only conclude that America is indeed weak – America has capitulated to Iran0 Comments Published by Office 2 September 28th, 2015 in Government, Insight Into Islam, Iran, Islam, Islamic Terrorism, Political Correctness, Politics, Politics, United States of America, World News
July 29, 2015 – By Robert Spencer
Indeed. Dark days ahead. “Six Strikes against the Nuclear Deal with Iran,” by Prof. Efraim Inbar, The Begin-Sadat Center for Strategic Studies, July 15, 2015:
There are (at least) six significant and immediate bad results from the agreement reached yesterday between the Western powers and Iran.
*America the weak: The way in which the negotiations were conducted underscored the weakness of the US. The Obama administration was willing to offer almost unlimited concessions to the skillful Iranian negotiators, ignoring all its own deadlines and red lines. It is clear that President Obama was desperate for a deal in order to leave office with a ”legacy.”
While Washington congratulates itself on a “successful” result, what counts is the perceptions of the countries in the region. Alas, all countries in the region can only conclude that America is indeed weak. America has capitulated to Iran.
*Nuclear legitimacy: Instead of insisting on the dismantling of all uranium enrichment facilities in Iran, as was accomplished in Libya, the US actually accorded international legitimacy to a large-scale Iranian 2. nuclear infrastructure, including thousands of centrifuges. The deal leaves almost intact all central components of the Iranian nuclear program.
The grand finale of the rare blood-moon tetrad will be a spectacular “supermoon” eclipse, the first in more than three decades.
And the scholar who discovered the correlation between a sequence of four blood moons and events in the history of the Jewish people thinks the extremely rare conclusion of the tetrad with a supermoon is a message from God to the nations of the world: Do not divide the land of Israel.
Pastor Mark Biltz of El Shaddai Ministries told WND the final blood moon of a series of four occurring on Jewish holy days in 2014 and 2015 is “a loud call to Israel and to the nations.”
The coming super blood moon will be seen in Jerusalem.
“The land of Israel belongs to the God of Israel and is on lease to them. They have no authority to sell or give away the land of Israel to another people, as it is their heritage,” he said.
The fourth blood moon comes as the 70th United Nations General Assembly moves to recognize a Palestinian state, which Israel sees as a threat to its existence.
The Arctic ice shield is not melting as the Greens’ predictions want us all to believe, writes Keith Bryer.
Nature has bowled a googly at the scientific “consensus” that says catastrophic climate change is inevitable, unless we all wear hair shirts. The Arctic ice sheet is not melting according to the doom-laden prediction that the climate change industry has assiduously promoted for decades.
Instead of shrinking, raising sea levels, flooding coastal cities, and reversing the Gulf Stream, the Arctic ice cap has grown.
This news, coming almost on the eve of the Paris Conference on Climate Change, might dampen the enthusiasm of the expected 50 000 participants, half of them government delegates. The rest are from intergovernmental organisations (bureaucrats), and UN agencies (more bureaucrats). These astounding numbers come from the conference website.

U.S. President Barack Obama delivered remarks at an indoor stadium in Nairobi. Obama told Kenya on Saturday the United States was ready to work more closely in the battle against Somalia’s Islamist group al Shabaab, but chided his host on gay rights and said no African state should discriminate over sexuality.
According to Kristen Holmes and Eugene Scott of CNN, the president met with Kenyan President Uhuru Kenyatta. One of the topics focused on Kenya’s gay rights record.
“When you start treating people differently not because of any harm they are doing to anybody, but because they are different, that’s the path whereby freedoms begin to erode,” Obama said. “And bad things happen.”

As the world responds to the latest series of Islamic extremist attacks, including a Tunisia attack that killed 30 people, one story that isn’t being covered in the media is that Muslims are turning to Christ.
Twenty-one-year-old Hafid* from Morocco believed in jihad and killing anyone who did not follow the laws of Islam.
However, his life was transformed when he started watching Leading The Way’s 24/7 satellite television channel, The Kingdom Sat. Leading The Way is a television broadcast from the ministry of Michael Youssef.
“I started comparing Islam with Christianity and found there to be a lot of contradictions between the Hadith (the prophets’ teaching) and the Quran. I studied the Bible online. I wanted to tell you that I have decided to follow Jesus.”
After receiving this message, Leading The Way’s follow-up team led him to Christ.
‘Life Has Stopped:’ 70 Niger Churches Struggle to Rebuild After Islamist Revenge Rampage for Charlie Hebdo Cartoons0 Comments Published by Office 2 September 23rd, 2015 in Africa, Christian Persecution, Freedom of Religion, Insight Into Islam, Islam, Islamic Terrorism, Muslims
Churchgoer Romain Oke poses for a picture inside an evangelical church that was destroyed in riots demonstrating against French satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo’s cartoons of the Islamic prophet Muhammad, in Niamey, Niger, January 23, 2015.
At least five people were killed last Saturday in protests in Niger against Charlie Hebdo’s cartoons of the Muslim prophet Muhammad, authorities said, bringing the death toll from two days of violence in the country to 10.
Christian churches in Niger are facing a lack of resources and difficult conditions in rebuilding six months after the wave of angry Islamist attacks destroyed at least 70 houses of worship in revenge for Charlie Hebdo’s drawings of the Muslim prophet Muhammad.
“Since these incidents, it is as if life had stopped,” said Rev. Jacques Kangindé, leader of the Baptist “Roundabout” church in Niamey. “The church has become a source of curiosity for passers-by and a hide-out for idlers. Unfortunately our current church finances don’t allow us to begin the reconstruction.”

The National President of Rise Up Australia Party, Daniel Nalliah, will be addressing the residents of Mildura this Saturday the 26th & Sunday the 27th of September.
The Saturday night meeting is open to the public and will be held at 7:00pm at Sandors Motor Inn, 179 Deakin Avenue, Mildura.
Mr. Nalliah will be speaking on issues including the current Refugee Crisis from the Middle East, National Security, Islam & Multiculturalism.
Having lived and worked in Saudi Arabia, and being the recent author of the book entitled “The 21st century culture war in the West”, he brings great insight into the current conflict and our necessary response.
This morning from his office in Melbourne he stated, “I am looking forward to meeting the residents of Mildura this weekend as I have much to share with them.
Since Mildura is one of several locations in Australia where Muslims refugees are resettled in large numbers, could this become another ghetto or sharia zone”?
