AND THE NATIONAL MOTTO IS? - Does the president of the United States know what the national motto is, or is he so self-centered on his leftist ideology that he does not care what it is? Members of Congress would like to know. Congressman J. Randy Forbes (R-VA), and 42 other Members of the Congressional Prayer Caucus, today sent a letter to President Barack Obama asking him to issue a correction to his speech in Jakarta, Indonesia, in which he referred to the national motto as being "E Pluribus unum." Forbes said, "For the President of the United States to incorrectly state something as foundational as our national motto in another country is unacceptable. The President is the primary representative of our nation to the world, and whether mistake or intention, his actions cast aside an integral part of American society."

US AMBASSADOR TO TERROR - U.S. ambassador to the UK, Louis B. Susman, visited the East London Mosque (ELM), ELM, to express his "great admiration" and to further state that he was "looking forward" to a dialogue with mosque leaders. The East London Mosque has hosted speakers such as Anwar al-Awlaki, who is the leader of al-Qaida in the Arabian Peninsula and who is also on a US terrorist hit list. In addition, the leader of terror group Jamaat-e-Islami Bangladesh, and numerous other radical jihadists have spoken there. When the Susman visit to ELM was exposed by the press, the State Department defended him in an official statement saying that his visit there was, "part of President Obama's call for a renewed dialogue with Muslim communities around the world."

ASIA BIBI - Asia Bibi, A Christian woman in Pakistan, is still slated to be executed for insulting the Koran. She has been jailed for 15 months and has never been able to testify on her own behalf. Her execution is based on the accusation of a Muslim neighbor who was in a dispute with her. Meanwhile, the Center for Legal Aid, Assistance and Settlement (CLAAS), is appealing to the Pakistani government to pardon Bibi. (A court has ordered Pakistan's president not to pardon her, as he had tried to do.) CLASS also is demanding the end to blasphemy laws that allow the arrest of Christians, often on the word of only one Muslim. Read more at Pakistan Christian Post
JEWISH SHARKS ATTACK ARABS?- The story goes that two Arab soccer teams got into a brawl and it was determined that Jews a thousand miles away started the fight. So, who gets blamed when sharks attack Arabs swimming in the Red Sea? You guessed it, the Jews. An Egyptian government official is claiming that Israel's Mossad has sent trained sharks to attack its beaches. Perhaps Secretary of State Hillary Clinton could urge a construction freeze of Jewish homes in Jerusalem until an agreement over shark territories is settled between Israel and Egypt ... OH NO ... I'm starting to sound like I work at the State Department.
