NEW FEBRUARY 24, 2011 CHAIRMAN'S REPORT- Issue highlights: Exclusive report from Iraq - Christians in Nineveh Plain try to survive / Congressman's plan to help Christians, other minorities / South Asia suffers Islamic attacks / Freedom on trial in Europe / Liberal media confused about Ground Zero mosque / White male Islamophobe plans to bomb mosque?
TERROR ATTACK ON OUR TROOPS - This week a Muslim from Kosovo walked onto a bus carrying US airmen at an airport in Germany, and while screaming "Allah Akbar!" he killed two airmen and wounded two others. It is reported that he was a civilian employee of the air base -- otherwise he would not have had access to the bus. President Obama's statement about the attack was very much like the statement he made when Major Hassan killed 13 fellow soldiers in the Ft. Hood massacre. The President made no mention of terror. He opened his remarks by referring to the Islamic attack on unarmed airmen as "a tragic event that took place earlier today in Frankfurt, Germany." It took seven weeks for the White House to admit that Major Hassan, who also screamed Allah Akbar while killing unarmed servicemen and women, was indeed a terrorist. The final report on Hassan never mentioned that he was a Muslim. We can expect the same from the White House concerning this attack.
AND THE MONEY ROLLS IN - During the 2008 election Barack Obama's campaign committee officially raised $745 million dollars. After the election, at the end of 2008, Obama's committee still had $15 million on hand. As Obama starts his run for re-election he is seeking over $1 billion dollars. In contrast his last opponent, Senator John McCain, raised only $380 million and that included federal matching funds.

THE CHURCH AND THE 2012 CANDIDATES - I was stunned by a poll done by the Barna Organization on favorable/unfavorable ratings for the GOP candidates for president. Among Catholics and Protestants, former Governor Sarah Palin's unfavorable ratings are 64% and 50% respectively. Newt Gingrich's unfavorable ratings are nearly as high among Christians. On the favorable side, former Governor Mike Huckabee is the leader, with Mitt Romney a close second. See poll results.
