THANK YOU SENATOR INHOFE! - In a rare display of courage, Senator Jim Inhofe has refused to participate in the annual parade in Tulsa, Oklahoma because Christmas was removed from the title and replaced with "holiday." Inhofe said, "I am hopeful that the good people of Tulsa and the city's leadership will demand a correction to this shameful attempt to take Christ, the true reason for our celebration, out of the parade's title. Until the parade is again named the Christmas Parade of Lights, I will not participate." Send a thank you to Senator Inhofe! Photo at left is Senator Inhofe at a past Christmas parade.

El-Gamal claims that he had problems in his "youth" but not after he became closer to Islam after the 9/11 jihad attack. Yet, just five years ago in 2005 El-Gamal broke the nose and cheekbone of a renter who owed him money. When he was arrested, El-Gamal denied he socked the renter, Mark Vassiliev, but later in court said, "[Vassiliev's] face could have run into my hand." He has a long history of thuggery that includes seven arrests. Those arrests include DUI, disorderly conduct and soliciting a prostitute.
El-Gamal sent a message on Twitter that said, "When you beat up someone physically you get exercise & stress relief; when you assault him verbally on the web you just harm yourself." That sums up Sharif el-Gamal, typical Muslim thug and NBC "person of the year."
ANOTHER BANK SUES MOSQUE MAN - Citi Bank has filed a lawsuit against Sharif el-Gamal, the Ground Zero mosque developer who was recently named an NBC "person of the year." His real estate firm, which is the real owner of the property where the mosque is to be built, was also named in the lawsuit. The bank says that he and his company have failed to pay back $99,489 borrowed on business credit line. This is the second bank this year to file against el-Gamal. Earlier Valley National Bank filed a suit for more than $95,000. El-Gamal has made a statement that refusing to pay legal debts is a "standard" business practice used to negotiate better terms, and yes, dishonest men often do use that tactic. Honest men, however, pay their debts.

UN SAYS RACHEL'S TOMB IS A MOSQUE - The United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) has declared that two of Judaism's most holy sites in Israel - are mosques! One is the site of Rachel's Tomb, and the other one, known to Jews as the Cave of the Patriarchs, is believed to be the burial site of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob and three of their wives. The US State Department had already attacked Israel verbally for listing the two sites as part of "Jewish cultural heritage." This story has received virtually no coverage in US media, not even from Fox. Read more
CHRISTIANS KILLED BY COPS IN EGYPT - (Please note: Every week there are dozens of attacks on Christians in Islamic nations and all of the attacks, even the fatal ones, cannot all be reported here. Each week I pick one or two attacks to highlight the overall problem.) This past week Egyptian security forces used live ammunition against unarmed Coptic Christians protesters. Three men were killed and many others were wounded. A four-year old child also died from tear gas inhalation from a grenade tossed into a chapel. The Christians were peacefully protesting an attack by authorities against a community center which was under construction. Egyptian police say the community center had a room for prayer that was contrary to the building permit. In Egypt no church may be built without personal permission of President Mabarak.
NEW ZEALAND BANS KOSHER MEAT - New Zealand is a huge lamb and beef producer and sells millions of pounds of its products to Muslim nations each year. On the other hand there are only a few Jews in that nation. The result? New Zealand has banned the production of Kosher meats to appease its Muslim customers. It is the first nation to ban kosher products since the Nazi government of Germany. Read more
