NEW: Chairman's Report for October 14, 2011 In this issue: No White House comment as Christians die in Egypt / Obama supports those trashing Wall Street and using drugs / The faith of presidential challengers / Santorum on Islamic fascism / Grover Norquist exposed by Congressman Wolf / Journalism school teaches that 9-11 attack not a big deal / Sharia for France
NO SUPPORT FOR EGYPTIAN CHRISTIANS - President Barack Obama organized NATO airstrikes to assist Islamic rebels in overthrowing the government of Libyan strongman Moammar Gaddafi. The President was also instrumental in unseating the secular president of Egypt, Hosni Mubarak. The President used very strong rhetoric when calling for an "Arab Spring" and the removal of secular leaders in several Middle Eastern nations including Yemen. Now, as one Christian church after the other is burned and as Christians lie dead in the street, murdered by police, little is heard from the White House.
INCREDIBLE CORRUPTION - The headlines don't tell it all. While the focus is on the huge amounts of money given to stalled or bankrupt "green" projects by the Obama Administration, no one is paying much attention to the actual corruption. $737 million in tax payer money was given to The SolarReserve project where Nancy Pelosi's brother-in-law, Ronald Pelosi, is second in command. To top that off the project is being built just over the border from California in Senate majority Leader Harry Reid's home state. Virtually every "green" loan from the fed's in the last three years has had some connection to an Obama donor or to one of his cronies in Congress. Read more
CONGRESSMAN FRANK WOLF: THE BOOK - In his new book, Prisoner of Conscience respected congressman and human and religious rights crusader Frank Wolf shows what one person can do to fight injustice and relieve suffering. In Prisoner of Conscience, Wolf shares intimate stories of his adventures from the halls of political power to other dangerous places around the world, what he has learned along the way, and what you can do as a citizen now.
CHRIS SMITH HEARINGS ON ISLAMIC SLAVERY - Yes, there is plenty of slavery in the world today and most of it is in Islamic nations. Virtually every slave brought to the United States was sold by Islamic slave traders, and they are still at work today. Chris Smith held hearings on the Christians kidnapped in the South Sudan and forced into slavery in the Islamic north just as liberal commentator Ellen Ratner returned from there. Her report on slavery there is intriguing considering that most of her fellow Liberals can find no evil at all in Islam.
RELIGION AND CULTURE
FORCED CONVERSION - Noted scholar Raymond Ibrahim reports on forced conversions in Islam, a phenomenon that has a long history with ample precedents. Indeed, from its inception, most of those who embraced Islam did so under duress and to escape death or dhimmi status, beginning with the Ridda wars and during the age of conquests. This is a simple fact. Yet, when one compares today's cases of forced conversions with those from centuries past, identical patterns emerge, demonstrating great continuity. Read more

BLOODY SUNDAY IN CAIRO - On October 8th Coptic Christians took to the streets in Cairo to protest the burning of the Mar Gerges Church in the Elmarenab village of Aswan. They were immediately attacked by the police and several Christians were killed. Outraged thousands of Coptic Christians took to the streets to demonstrate. The outnumbered police called in the army to kill even more Christians. At last count there were 36 Christians dead (26 according to mainstream media reports) and hundreds more injured. This is Barack Obama's "Arab Spring," a so-called peaceful revolution that has empowered in Egypt the radical Muslim Brotherhood, a group Obama's Administration calls "secular in nature." Read more
