This Week's Big Lie: Obama Threatens to End Support for a 'Palestinian State'

Cannot think of another headline that would deliver such sensible "shock and awe" if it were true:

"Obama Threatens To End Support for a Palestinian State"

As 'Flow' would say, "when donkeys fly".

The fact is the manchurian Obama regime just "upgraded" the status of the Palestinian Authority's DC office. They can now fly their PA flag outside their  office, and enjoy diplomatic immunity. The same as any legitimately recognized state.

So what's going on?

Speaking of donkeys: 

The November mid-term elections are only 3 months away.

Even prominent democrats admit that they are likely in for a real beating at the voting booth. Among them Obama's own press secretary Robert Gibbs.

The polls show a clear majority of Americans support securing our borders and not rewarding illegal aliens with amnesty. Something that is totally opposite of what Obama wants.

As well as support for Arizona's tough new anti-illegal immigration law.

And now the Obama regime has had the audacity to file a lawsuit against the enforcement of this law that a majority of Arizona citizens want and need.

Then there is the anger that many have towards Obama for the blanket moratorium on all oil drilling. This is something that is negatively affecting the lives of tens of thousands along the Gulf Coast.

After a judge ruled that Obama's blanket-oil-drilling-moratorium was both unfair and unconstitutional, what does Obama do? He orders the Eric Holder Justice Dept. to file a lawsuit to continue keeping folks along the Gulf Coast from getting back to work on the rigs.

Again, Obama clearly going against the will of the people.

Combine all that with a steady stream of lost support from even liberal democrat U.S. jews over Obama's treatment of Israel,-- well here's the bottom line:

The most recent poll shows a clear majority of American's support Israel, and Obama would like to get back some of his lost support among U.S. jews over his treatment of Israel.

He figures every little bit may help avoid mid-term election disaster for democrats. 

So a headline like the one above, and it's AP/Palestinian report, is to have the effect of making it look like Obama is actually getting tough with Abbas.

As it has recently been pointed out, Obama was behind British PM David Cameron's recent rant against Israel.

And with friends like Ali Abunimah and Rashid Khalidi, there is no way Obama is going to end his support for the Israel hating Fatah islamists.

No, there is no truth to the contrived notion that Obama would even remotely consider ending his support for the establishment of a Fatah Palestinian State in the very heart of Israel.

That was something purely for public consumption.

  

 


The Messianic Seal of the Church [Congregation] in Jerusalem

Messianic_symbol_anoitngjar
[ From an article at Jewish Roots of Christianity]:  

How Many Distinct Symbols Do You See?

"This symbol represents a recent discovery in terms of how the early church identified itself... whether you see 1, 2, or 3 symbols may depend on whether you have discernment in your identity as a Gentile believer in the Jewish Messiah..."

[Key excerpts]:

"You see, God has made ONE NEW MAN from TWO distinct parts.... Jewish and Gentile believers in ONE BODY of MESSIAH..

"Many in the Church today feel that 'we Gentiles' as the Church have somehow replaced national Israel and the Jewish people in terms of the covenant promises of God... and this has in turn affected how many read and interpret the Bible in regard to Israel."

"So why does this symbol have anything to do with that?? The Evangelical Press News Service (EP) released an article in July of 1999 that quoted the following:

"A Messianic Seal from the Christian church in ancient Jerusalem has been rediscovered after 2,000 years. This ancient symbol was found on Mount Zion. It is believed to have been created and used by the Jewish believers who called themselves Nazarenes in the first Messianic Church."

[also]:

"The Messianic Seal of the Jerusalem Church, the ancient three-part symbol has, since 135 AD, been suppressed by various Israeli groups or agencies, such as the Israel Museum and Orthodox rabbis in the Old City of Jerusalem, while simultaneously being buried for these nearly two millennia by the church."

Go Daria Novak!

Daria Novak is one of four candidates seeking the Republican nomination for the Connecticut 2nd congressional district. 

The primary will be held August 10th. The winner will take on liberal Democrat incumbent Joe Courtney in November. 

Daria Novak is a true patriot and conservative. A post at Redstate has this:

"Daria:  I came across this patriotic Tea Party Conservative woman running for Connecticutt’s 2nd district, during the heated pre-Obamacare months and days.  She’s a true Reaganite advocate for peace through strength, individual liberties and free market solutions, and as the official Republican nominee, will beat liberal activist and current rep. Joe Courtney in November with our support.  http://novakforcongress.com/"

A former news anchor ,Janet Peckinpaugh, is one of the other three Republicans running in the same primary and a rival candidate of Daria Novak.

Peckinpaugh describes herself as fiscally conservative and socially moderate. In other words, she is running as a "rino". 

On abortion she states she is pro-choice.

How can one be pro-choice about homicide?

Abortion-it's an American holocaust!

Her response to a question as to whether she supports partial birth abortion was "...it's something I have to study a little more".

Kind of like "it's above my paygrade".

Peckinpaugh has name recognition and is well known throughout Connecticut because of her TV news anchor career. In fact, longtime residents of the Richmond, Va. area will remember Janet Peckinpaugh from her job as news anchor at channel 12 before her move to Connecticut. 

Peckinpaugh also canceled out of a debate sponsored by Free Norwich, a Tea Party group.  

The caption on the top right-hand side of Free Norwich's website reads-

" Eastern CT's Extremist Right-Wing Headquarters since 2007."

Janet Peckinpaugh apparently does not appreciate the sardonic humor implied by that caption:

"They have billed themselves as eastern Connecticut’s right-wing extremist headquarters," Peckinpaugh said. "To me, for a Republican candidate in the 2nd District to be affiliating themselves with a right-wing extremist organization is not looking ahead to November."

This found at Ruthfully Yours:

"NOVAK STRONGLY URGES COURTNEY TO SIGN LETTER IN SUPPORT OF ISRAEL’S RIGHT OF SELF-DEFENSE"

"Madison, CT — Daria Novak strongly urges Rep. Joe Courtney to join the majority of Congress in support of Israel’s right of self-defense. “Why hasn’t Courtney joined over 300 other Members of Congress who have signed off on the letter supporting the blockade and defense of Israel’s enforcement of it against a Turkish vessel?” Novak asked."

“We must stand strong with Israel, our ally, in its response to rocket attacks by Hamas terrorists in Gaza. Its naval blockade, allowed under international law, will enhance the country’s national security while permitting humanitarian aid into Gaza. Israel is a democratic state that has a right to defend itself. The United States should support her.”

 


No Mosque At Ground-Zero!

The MSM networks are refusing to run an Ad opposing Islamist plans for a mosque at Ground-Zero:

 

Here's the Ad video below:

 

Plans for a mosque by Islamists at our Ground-Zero has important jihadist symbolism. Former muslim Wafa Sultan explains it well:

"It is crucial to study the supremacist ideology of Islam and to recognize, for example, that the building of a mosque especially at Ground Zero is viewed by Muslims as a decisive victory over the infidels in Islam's march to establish its ultimate goal: the submission of all others to Islam and to Sharia Law."

After the Serbs were defeated by an Islamist army at the battle of Kosovo, one of the first things the Islamists did was to construct a mosque. Construction of the Sultan Murad Mosque in Pristina was began in 1389 after Islamic forces under Sultan Murad were successful in defeating the Serbs.

Current Turkish PM Erdogan has stated that,-

"The mosques are our barracks, and the minarets are our swords." 

Over the centuries scores of Christian churches have been damaged, destroyed, or converted to mosques once Islam has gained control.  

When Islamists conquered Constantinople they closed down the main church, Hagai Sophia, and converted it into a mosque.

They did the same in Damascus to the great church of St. John the Baptist.

After Islamists invaded, occupied, and colonized the Middle East in the 7th century they deliberately and intentionally built a mosque on Temple Mount in Jerusalem. The most outrageous act of relgious intolerance and insensitivity. 

Whether the converting of a church into a mosque, or the building of a mosque after a jihad militant victory, the symbolism the Islamists wish to convey is that "Islam is supreme".

David Wood of Acts17 explains in this video.

Many churches and synagogues have been either destroyed or converted to mosques during the past 1400 years since this dangerous imperialist political ideology/religion of Islam began. 


Attention Auto Makers: Bring Back Sturdy Chrome Bumpers!

Notice anything missing on many of today's new automobiles?

How about sturdy chrome front and rear metal bumpers?!

Plastic bumpers with a styrofoam inside. What does that protect against! 

Forget the chrome, many of todays new vehicles don't even have bumpers. Instead, their front end just sticks out a little more. Like the ones pictured in a new car lot below:

Used-car-lot

Your off to work early in the morning before the sun comes up. At 5:30 in the morning the parking lot is nearly empty. The sun is just now coming up. For a split second you get "blinded" by the sun. In that second, you have a 2 mile per hour collision with a metal parking sign.

Metal sign pole meets plastic bumper. Guess which one withstands the impact and which one sustains the damage?

These days a minor 2 mile per hour mishap can cost hundreds, perhaps thousands of dollars in damage that may have been prevented with adequate "chrome" bumper protection.

Not to mention the inconvenience of "shop-time" for your vehicle.

But that's the whole idea behind why the auto industry keeps making vehicles harder to repair yourself, and more damage-susceptible.

Take a good look at this 1985 Jeep Grand Cherokee in the photo below. Notice the front and rear chrome bumpers. That's not all, check out the headlights. Easy to adjust and remove "headlights". No-headlamp "assembly". In addition, there is a chrome metal grill that runs all the way across the front end.

2903-DANLAUZON

 

Now here's a photo of a 1995 Jeep Grand Cherokee below:

%2793-%2795_Jeep_Grand_Cherokee_Limited

Plastic bumper with styrofoam inside. Also notice, instead of normal "headlights", there is now a "headlamp assembly". Also, notice the lack of a "metal" front grill. And behind that front grill is more plastic!

Also, chrome bumpers make for a more sporty looking vehicle.

Maybe a better way to go would be to take a real bumper-car and convert it to street use:

Bumper_car 

Now if you run into a metal sign pole with a vehicle like the one pictured above, you'll just "bounce-away".

Readers may also want to check out the discussion on this subject in this 2007 blog forum post: "Do We Bring Back the 5MPH Bumper?"

Most commenters there were definitely in favor of chrome over "plastic".


Test-Permalink Problem

This is a test.

Been having a severe problem with the way the permalink "page" has been displaying in recent posts.

The permalink page for the previous post in regards to the new Biblia Hebraica Quinta, has not been displaying correctly for some reason.

Submitted several Typepad "help tickets", but so far have not recieved any adequate help.

Will see what happens with this test post.


Biblia Hebraica Quinta: Buyer Use Caution!

Have you heard:

BYU Professor Named Editor of New Edition of Hebrew Old Testament.

Was immediately alarmed when this was read.

This is something that has gone totally under the radar. It is not being widely discussed.

The translation of Hebrew Scriptures in most Bibles is based on the Masoretic Text. For years Bible teachers and students have made use of the Biblia Hebraica Stuttgartensia for study of the Hebrew Text. The BHS has also been referenced for new editions of the Holy Bible.

It is therefore alarming that the United Bible Society would invite a BYU Mormon faculty member to work as an "editor" on the new "Biblia Hebraica Quinta".

In addition, another "editor" working on the new Hebrew Bible edition is of the Presbyterian Church USA, a professor with the liberal Union Theological Seminary of the Twin Cities.

Presbyterians Pushing to demonise Israel-Jpost.

Of course the danger in a Presbyterian USA professor being one of the editors of the new Biblia Hebraica Quinta , is how such things as replacement theology, and liberal views may "inform" their editorial decision making.

The Speakers Bureau of the UTSTC features speakers representing church denominations that are among the radical religious left in America. Including the very liberal UCC [United Church of Christ], the denomination that Obama's former church is a member of.

Incidentally, the Presbyterian USA members are beginning their convention in Minneanapolis this weekend and will vote on whether they will adapt the recommendations set forth in that biased, unfactual, and anti-Israel Middle East study report.

Donald W. Parry is one of the two "editors" tasked by the United Bible Society and the German Bible Society to work on Isaiah for the new Biblia Hebraica Quinta.

Of course the concern here is how Parry's Mormonist indoctrination may "inform" his editorial decisions with regards to the Hebrew Text,--that scores of future Bibles published,--may be based on. [Biblia Hebraica Quinta].

Mormonism is famous for intertwinning un-Biblical Mormon "scripture" with true "Biblical Scripture". For example how Isaiah is cross referenced with "Mormon" scriptures , teachings, and misinterpreted.

An article entitled "Isaiah In The Book of Mormon", written by a Mormon, helps give some insight as to Dr. Parry's view of interpreting Isaiah. Here's a brief excerpt from the introduction:

"Isaiah's wife is called 'prophetess' in Isaiah's record [8:3], suggesting that she too had the gift of revelation."

"Isaiah and his wife had at least two sons who served as signs to Israel, as did Isaiah and his wife themselves. 'Behold I and the children whom the Lord hath given me are for signs and for wonders in Israel from the Lord of hosts' [8:19]..."

"Isaiah stood as a type of God the Father; the prophetess was a type of Mary, the mother of Christ; and one of their sons was a type of Jesus Christ"

That last statement of Parry's above, seems to echo official Mormon doctrine that God [the Father], had physical relations with the virgin Mary, giving birth to Jesus in Bethlehem.

Yes, you read that correctlty.

From What the Mormon Missionaries Won't Tell You:

"They will be reluctant to tell you that Mormon leaders have taught that Jesus was concieved by way of a sexual relationship between God and Mary."

'... how are children begotten? I answer just as Jesus Christ was begotten of his father. The difference between Jesus Christ and other men is this: Our fathers in the flesh are mortal men, who are subject unto death: but the Father of Jesus Christ in the flesh is the God of Heaven'-[Joeseph F. Smith, Family Home Evening Manual, 1972, pg. 125]

What makes Mormonism such a "spiritualy dangerous " counterfeit Christian cult religion,- is it's use of familiar sounding Christian words, phrases, and terminology.

Unless one has studied and researched into the true beliefs and doctrines of Mormonism, to see how Mormonism makes use of words and terminology familiar to Christians , but reinterprets them to accomodate un-Biblical doctrines, they can be easily misled.

Insights from and discussions with former Mormons are also of help.

Here is an excellent article from the TBS on the editorial "liberties" that liberal United Bible Society translators engaged in resulting in the NIV:

What Today's Christian Needs To Know About the NIV

With regards to this new edition of the Hebrew text [Biblia Hebraica Quinta], as was pointed out earlier, it is news that is not being widely discussed. 

Chances are that most average "lay" readers of the Bible, who aren't involved in Biblical "academia", this is news that has totally gone under the radar.

This blogger stumbled on to it by accident.
