A VIDEO FOR OBAMA - If President Barack Obama would watch a startling video translated by MEMRI of a "child preacher" on an Egyptian TV program, perhaps his concept of "terror" would change. It is the story of a youth fighting the Byzantines, who longs for martyrdom to meet his "black eyed virgin wife" in Paradise. NOTE: This video was not done by the Taliban, it was on the air as an approved broadcast in "moderate" Egypt. Watch video
DID MUSLIMS ATTACK FT. JACKSON IN DECEMBER? - Shortly after Nidal Hasan's jihad attack at Ft. Hood on November 5th, at least five Islamic translators were "detained" at Ft. Jackson for planning to poison the food supply at that military facility. Because of the jihad attack by Hasan that killed 13 adults plus one unborn baby, the military has put a clamp on all news surrounding the planned attack at Ft. Jackson. I have previously reported that the Army has an all Muslim translator unit (with no Christians or Jews allowed) despite the fact that tens of thousands of qualified Christian translators who have fled Islamic oppression are available. Army spokeswoman Julia Simpkins said no "soldiers were in danger" but then oddly added a statement to the effect that this is a "diversity" at all costs situation in which Christians are discriminated against in order to have Muslims in uniform.

CONGRESS STILL OUT - Congress took an extra week off because of the blizzards that hit Washington last week ... and wow ... that just happened to run into Presidents' Day, so Speaker Nancy Pelosi decided to take off this week as well. Let's get some honesty here ... the Democrats are in big trouble and Pelosi needs to send them home as often and for as long as possible between now and November so they can campaign to keep their seats. Congress is now set to reconvene on Monday, February 22, 2010 ... unless it snows again. BYE-BYE BIPARTISAN JOBS BILL - With so many failures in the House and Senate for President Barack Obama, he desperately needed some bill to pass that was "bipartisan" to prove that Democrats really can work with Republicans. The agreed to bill was the $85 billion jobs legislation forged by Senators Max Baucus, a Montana Democrat, and Chuck Grassley, an Iowa Republican. It was introduced with much fanfare. A few hours later, Democrat Senate Leader Harry Reid tossed the weeks of work in the trash and put in a substitute bill that he will alow no amendments to. Even liberal writers at Time Magazine could not explain it. Fox News gave it a shot as well. I have my own theory, that Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi are smoking something odd in those locked rooms where they make all the deals.

NEW FEBRUARY CHAIRMAN'S REPORT NOW ONLINE- The February 10, 2010 Chairman's Report is now available online in PDF format. This issue highlights the deportation of Iraqi Christians from Sweden and the continued efforts of the government of the Netherlands to eliminate free speech in the name of political correctness. The leader of the second largest political party in the European Union may go to jail for "insulting Islam" Click here to read PDF
THE UNFAIR TRIAL OF GEERT WILDERS - The trial of Geert Wilders continues in the Netherlands. Prosecutors want to put this Member of Parliament in jail for being critical of Islam. In Canada MACLEANS ran an op-ed called "The absurd trial of Geert Wilders" and pointed out that this repression of free speech happens in Canada as well. There is no doubt that Geert Wilders is a victim of both political and religious persecution. If his right of free speech is denied and he is jailed it will mark the end of freedom in the EU. An interesting perspective appeared in the Jerusalem Post. Until Geert Wilders is given his rights we should all boycott Dutch products including Shell Oil.
WESTERN CIVILIZATION ON TRIAL - The trial of Member of Parliament Geert Wilders is not an issue for just the Netherlands. It is not just Geert Wilders that is on trial, it is Western civilization. If Muslims in Western nations can have people put in jail for "insulting" their religion, it is a statement of surrender of not only Christianity, but the secular West. More at NRO
