Pakistan’s Supreme Court Acquits Asia Bibi Of ‘Blasphemy’ After Almost A Decade In Prison, CBN; Also see, The Death Or Life Of A Christian ‘Blasphemer’ Will Show Pakistan To Be An Evil Or Still Tolerant Nation, Raymond Ibrahim; Also see, Asia Bibi And 1400 Years Of Muhammad ‘Blasphemers’, Raymond Ibrahim

Quote: “This is the crux of the issue: Muslims believe they have a mission to spread Islam. But when those who are invited to Islam seriously examine the teachings and life of its founder, they respond with incredulity and outrage that anyone could accept Muhammad as a man of God — much less a prophet.”

Barack Obama, The Pope, ‘Doormat Christianity,’ And The Oxymoronic Suicide Of Western Culture, Raymond Ibrahim

Quote: “The First Crusaders only went to Jerusalem because Muslims had been slaughtering and enslaving literally hundreds of thousands of Christians in the East in the preceding years. The much-recounted Crusader sack of Jerusalem was a mere drop in the bloody bucket of Islamic atrocities. But this never seems to matter to such lofty-minded Christians.“

Common Sense Interpretation


Hey Hollywood, Here Are Some Real – Not Fictional – Historical Epics To Produce, Raymond Ibrahim

Quote: “[The film Kingdom of Heaven] …conforms to the mainstream narrative, the “lesson,” [that is,] if you ignore another inconvenient fact: that the crusaders marched in the first place to alleviate the sufferings of their eastern co-religionists, which had reached an unbearable and all time high at the hands of Muslim Turks in the late eleventh century…that the crusades are the only instance in a millennium of warfare between Islam and the West that feature Christians marching onto Muslim territory—as opposed to century after century of the opposite—means that they will remain a favorite for Hollywood.”

America’s Cold Civil War, Charles R. Kesler, Imprimus

Quote: “A cold civil war is better than a hot civil war, but it is not a good situation for a country to be in. Underlying our cold civil war is the fact that America is torn increasingly between two rival constitutions, two cultures, two ways of life.”

Quotes Of The Month:

“Piety requires us to honor truth above our friends.” – Aristotle

“Any one can get angry — that is easy — or give or spend money; but to do this to the right person, to the right extent, at the right time, with the right motive, and in the right way, that is not for every one, nor is it easy.” – Aristotle
