Egypt: Muslims Warn Christians From Demonstrating Against Muslim Brotherhood President

Christians in Egypt, you’ve been warned. And we know what Muslims do to religious minorities under the sharia. Devout Muslims are calling the Christians who live in fear “extremist Coptics.” Yes, any Christian who wants to live without fear, any Copt who doesn’t want his children kidnapped by Muslims and converted to Islam, any Christians who don’t want their churches destroyed are “extremist Coptics.”

Religious War: U.S. Arms Sunni Muslims in Conflict with Shiites, Iran Sends 4,000 Soldiers to Back Assad While Egypt Closes Embassy and Calls For No-Fly Zone in Syria

Washington’s decision to arm Syria’s Sunni Muslim rebels has plunged America into the great Sunni-Shia conflict of the Islamic Middle East, entering a struggle that now dwarfs the Arab revolutions which overthrew dictatorships across the region.

For the first time, all of America’s ‘friends’ in the region are Sunni Muslims and all of its enemies are Shiites. Breaking all President Barack Obama’s rules of disengagement, the US is now fully engaged on the side of armed groups which include the most extreme Sunni Islamist movements in the Middle East.

Vaccinations and the Right to Refuse


By: Dr. Sherri Tenpenny

By way of introduction, I like to tell people I’m a physician by training and a compulsive researcher by inclination. To be specific, I’ve invested more than seven-thousand hours investigating the under-reported health hazards associated with vaccinations, along with the attendant ethical and legal issues.

What started as a fairly modest research exercise has turned into a second full-time career. I’ve discussed vaccination hazards on more than 50 radio and television programs, addressed hundreds of professional, political, and trade groups, produced two informational DVDs, and authored numerous articles for both print publications and Internet sites. In addition, I’m scheduled to produce two books relating to the subject over the next year.
