Patriarch Kirill: Muslim Persecution of Mid-East Christians Surpasses Scope of Soviet Era, is 'Most Extensive in History'

"If we look at the proportions in relative terms, then the events in the Middle East can be called a genocide of the Christian population...” — Patriarch Kirill of Moscow and All Russia


Patriarch Kirill: Persecution of Middle East Christians Surpasses Scope of Soviet Russian Persecution
Pravoslavie, November 21, 2016:



Patriarch Kirill of Moscow and All Russia believes that the persecution of Christians in the Middle East has become the most extensive in world history.

“That which the Christian world is now facing, it has never faced before. By the number of Christians killed, the persecution in Russia was more brutal and more extensive, but if we look at the proportions not in absolute, but relative terms, then the events in the Middle East can be called a genocide of the Christian population,” the patriarch said on Tuesday in a meeting with the Antiochian delegation in Moscow.

Lebanese Christian: 'Donald Trump is good for Middle Eastern Christians'


"Middle Eastern Christians relish this: we can finally call Muslims out on their hypocrisy but, more importantly, we have a voice."


Donald Trump is good for Middle Eastern Christians
by Najwa Najib, Medium, October 29, 2016
(h/t Jihad Watch)



The 2016 presidential election has turned into a breeding ground for op-eds about every possible topic under the sun, though most focus on Donald Trump and the supposed danger he poses to the world in general and to Muslims in particular. People who have absolutely no right to speak on topics of domestic policy, foreign policy, Islam, whatever, have suddenly been given soapboxes. Where these used to be targets at which we all mostly rolled our eyes, they are now elevated.

Off the top of my head, I can think of big names with big things to say about Donald Trump’s policies. Louis CK compares Trump’s run to “being Germany in the ’30s,” where apparently they did not “[see] the shit coming”. In a New York Times op-ed, Aziz Ansari, not a practicing Muslim, fears for his Muslim family’s safety because he thinks that, in rounding 0.03% of Muslims being investigated for potential ISIS extremism down to 0, those 1,000 under investigation will do the same damage as 0 extremists could. Jill Soloway, creator of a show no one wants to watch, said in the press room following her Emmy win that “any moment [she has] to call Trump out to being an inheritor to Hitler, [she] will,” because Trump apparently ‘otherises’ Muslims. This defence of Muslims comes after screaming “topple the patriarchy” twice on stage during the actual show. She defended Islam, the inherently patriarchal religion whose adherents gruesomely and happily punish the “Jewish people, queer folk, trans folk” she patted herself on the back for featuring on her television show in her Emmy acceptance speech. Clearly, Jill Soloway’s grasp of Islam is matched only by Aziz Ansari’s statistical genius and Louis CK’s history knowledge.

While simultaneously pushing the narrative that Donald Trump’s candidacy would not have been possible without the media — apparently, the Hollywood elite feel that Donald Trump’s history-making run for President is due to Celebrity Apprentice and not to a widespread fatigue of the self-congratulating same-old same-old — the media also pushes the notion that Donald Trump is Hitler. Donald Trump is Hitler on the Emmys stage. Donald Trump is Hitler in the New York Times. Donald Trump is Hitler in newsletters. Donald Trump is Hitler anywhere that statement can be repeated, over and over again, unopposed and unchallenged.

Other more invested people can write and have written about how of course Donald Trump is not Hitler, about the sheer audacity of saying such a thing about a man whose daughter and grandchildren are Jewish. Those people might also explain how Führer Trump could only have run and won in 2016 because of that audacity, because of what the media pass for truth, because of the death of journalistic integrity.

But this piece is not a defence of Donald Trump.

I don’t know if I’m allowed to write passionately and honestly about anything, even about the continued genocide and erasure of my people and of all Middle Eastern Christian peoples. Where does this lament for my people fit in a world where click-bait and listicles pollute what’s left of journalism and where it seems almost everyone operates under the notion that “Donald Trump is literally Hitler”?

My people — Middle Eastern and North African Christians, Arabs, Assyrians, Armenians, Coptic, Catholic, Orthodox, etc. — where do we fit?

Vote for Restraint, for Life, for Religious Liberty. Vote for Trump

In the solid, common sense approach of his policy proposals and the Republican platform, Donald Trump has shown that he understands that what is needed to halt the erosions of our religious liberty, the respect for the sanctity of human life, and the foundations of our republic and our way of life, is a return to the dependable principles of conservative values and governance.



This means Restraint. It means law and order. It means secure borders, and a freeze on Muslim immigration to protect our nation from Islamic terrorism and sharia supremacism. And it means much, much more.

There is a spiritual meaning to this virtue of Restraint.

Hillary Clinton, Barack Hussein Obama, and the Progressive Left represent radical change, and the complete usurpation of the principles the United States was founded upon, of basic Christianity, and of Natural Law. In spiritual terms, they are agents of the Mystery of Lawlessness, and precursors to the Man of Lawlessness, the Antichrist:

"Now you know what is restraining, that he may be revealed in his own time.  For the mystery of lawlessness is already at work; only He who now restrains will do so until He is taken out of the way." (2 Thess 2:6-7)

In the USA, because we are a republic, and (ostensibly) select our leaders, we have the opportunity — and the responsibility — to vote against the mystery of lawlessness, and elect a Man of Restraint to hold back the flood of lawlessness, deception, lies and iniquity which is rising up all around us, and is threatening to sweep away our freedoms and religious liberty, not to mention add millions of new martyrs to the nearly 60 million babies murdered in the womb since Roe v. Wade in 1973.

What is at stake?

"The coming of the lawless one is according to the working of Satan, with all power, signs, and lying wonders, and with all unrighteous deception among those who perish, because they did not receive the love of the truth, that they might be saved.  And for this reason God will send them strong delusion, that they should believe the lie,  that they all may be condemned who did not believe the truth but had pleasure in unrighteousness." (2 Thess 2:9-12)

Donald J. Trump may have struggled to learn the art of message discipline in the less than a year and a half since he officially launched his campaign for President of the United States. He is not a perfect man, but since I am the "chief of all sinners", I forgive and look past his past errors, I accept his expressions of repentance over them, and I look at his virtues, his children, his business acumen and success, and his promises to protect religious liberty, the unborn, and to return this nation to a lawful, constitutional foundation.

Consider his Letter to Roman Catholics, in which he firmly states:

On life, I am, and will remain, pro-life. I will defend your religious liberties and the right to fully and freely practice your religion, as individuals, business owners and academic institutions. I will make absolutely certain religious orders like The Little Sisters of Poor are not bullied by the federal government because of their religious beliefs... 
We are at a crossroads in our country. Much like 1980. But the stakes are higher now—the highest they have ever been. We have two candidates representing entirely different agendas for our country that will take it in two completely different directions for generations to come. And our direction offers a much brighter future for our beloved country...

I couldn't have said it better. Let us vote for and elect the candidate who represents the "restraining power" against the mystery of lawlessness. Let us elect Donald J. Trump President of the United States.

'At Risk Is Nothing Less Than the Right Ever to Resist Again'

"If Trump fails, your right to speak or act against the tide of fascist Progressivism will disappear, likely forever, barring a truly awful and cataclysmic social collapse, which no one should desire."


by Jeffrey T. Brown, American Thinker,  November 7, 2016:

We have witnessed a series of cultural storms over the last several decades, many of which have altered our landscape.  Most have been artificial storms, created and powered by an ideology that seeks complete control over this nation and its future, set in motion to create the chaos in which to implant "progress."  These storms have eradicated our family structures, our nation's history, our ethical standards, our moral standards, our legal frameworks, our borders, our Constitution, and our discourse.

However, they have been mere precursors to the tsunami that Mrs. Clinton represents.  She is the culmination of socialist, fascist Progressivism.  She has come to complete the transformation, unless we stop her.  We will probably not get another chance.

Subtly but unmistakably, the left have been eroding our ability and our right to object to their ideology, to resist their forced implementation through politics, the courts, entertainment, and the media, all of which is presently under their sway.  This social coup has been a long time in the making, and it isn't going away anytime soon even if Mr. Trump prevails on Tuesday.

If Mr. Trump fulfills his potential as not only an obstacle to the left's victory, but as a vehicle for improvement, there is hope of a counter-revolution, philosophically speaking.  If he fails, your right to speak or act against the tide of fascist Progressivism will disappear, likely forever, barring a truly awful and cataclysmic social collapse, which no one should desire.

This overthrow started in small ways, with tactics such as political correctness and the focus upon "feelings" as equivalent to protected rights.  In all things done by the left, the goal is to exert control over resistance, to shame and embarrass those who have the sense to know the difference between absurdity and reality.

Political correctness has never been anything more than a method by which to prevent those with sense from revealing the lies to those without it.  But look how it has grown and metastasized into a justification for violence and illegality.  The left's irrational hatred for their opponents' resistance to almost all forms of control has become a justification for physical assaults, for character assassination, and for open lawlessness.

The Case Against Hillary Clinton: Part 2 — The Islamist Connection and Immigration

Decades of Clinton support for Islamic supremacists, Saudi Arabia's millions of dollars in support of the Clintons, PLUS the fact of Hillary's closest aide, Huma Abedin and her immediate family having longstanding links to the Muslim Brotherhood and an anti-American Islamist journal, should disqualify Hillary Clinton from the Presidency.

Hillary Clinton's financial ties to Saudi Arabia, her foreign policy which directly aided the Arab Spring revolutions and the rise of ISIS, and her call for "Open Borders" and a 550% increase of Muslim immigration reveal her to hold motives and foreign alliances which are anti-American.

A vote for Hillary Clinton is a vote for stealth jihad, weaponized immigration, and for the overthrow of the United States of America by hostile foreign entities.

THE CLINTON RECORD
A devastating exposé of the most unfit and undeserving individual ever to seek the American presidency.
by John Perazzo, FrontPageMag, October 14, 2016:

Never in American history has anyone as unfit and undeserving as Hillary Clinton run for U.S. President. While she stands on the threshold of being elected to the White House, she quite literally belongs in a prison cell. This article lays out the case against her, chapter and verse. 
Clinton's Support for the Iran Nuclear Deal 
Vowing that Mrs. Clinton will “preven[t] Iran from acquiring a nuclear weapon,” the Clinton presidential campaign website assures Americans that “Hillary will vigorously enforce the nuclear agreement with Iran.” Is this a good thing? Consider that the agreement's key provisions were as follows: 
  • Iran was permitted to keep more than 5,000 centrifuges.
  • Iran received $150 billion in sanctions relief.
  • Russia and China were permitted to supply Iran with weapons.
  • Iran was given the discretion to block international inspectors from its military installations, and was promised that it would receive 14 days’ notice for any request to visit a given site.
  • Only inspectors from countries that had diplomatic relations with Iran would be given access to Iranian nuclear sites; thus there would be no American inspectors.
  • An embargo on the sale of weapons to Iran would be officially lifted in 5 years.
  • Iran's intercontinental ballistic missile program would remain intact.  [...] 
The Radical Islamist Affiliations of Clinton's Closest Aide 
Hillary Clinton's closest aide for many years has been Huma Abedin, whose late father, Syed Abedin, was affiliated with the Muslim Students Association (MSA). The MSA grew out of the jihadist Muslim Brotherhood, which Islam expert Robert Spencer has described as “the parent organization of Hamas and al Qaeda.”34 
Huma's mother, Saleha Mahmood Abedin, is a prominent member of the Muslim Sisterhood — the Muslim Brotherhood's division for women. She is also a board member of the International Islamic Council for Dawa and Relief, a pro-Hamas entity that is part of the “Union of Good,” which the U.S. government has formally designated as an international terrorist organization. Saleha once wrote an article blaming America for having provoked the Islamic “anger and hostility” that led to the 9/11 attacks.35 
From 1996-2008, Huma Abedin was employed by the Institute of Muslim Minority Affairs (IMMA), a Saudi-based Islamic think tank founded by Abdullah Omar Naseef, a major Muslim Brotherhood figure who once served as secretary-general of the Muslim World League, a vehicle by which the Muslim Brotherhood promotes the ideology of Islamic supremacism. Naseef also had ties to Osama bin Laden and Al Qaeda, with whom he communicated.36 Abedin was the assistant editor of IMMA's in-house publication, the Journal of Muslim Minority Affairs (JMMA). At least the first seven of those years overlapped with Abdullah Omar Naseef's active presence in the IMMA.37  [...] 
The Deadly Consequences of Clinton's Absurd Fictions About Islam & Terrorism 
In 2011 the Obama administration, in which Mrs. Clinton was obviously a major player, decided to purge, from the training materials and curricula of all federal intelligence and criminal investigators, every single item suggesting that “jihad” or “Islam” were in any way related to terrorism.39 Instead, the new objective would be “countering violent extremism,” improving “cultural competency training across the United States Government,” and promoting “cultural awareness.”40 All told, the FBI removed more than 1,000 presentations and curriculum items that were deemed “offensive” or “Islamophobic.”41 
The FBI's decision to change its training materials and interrogation methods went on to have deadly serious, real-world consequences. A particularly noteworthy case involved jihadist Omar Mateen, who in June 2016 entered a gay nightclub in Orlando, Florida and murdered 49 people while wounding 53 others. The FBI had investigated Mateen extensively for 10 months in 2013 because he had family connections to Al Qaeda, he was a member of a Shi’a terrorist organization, and he had issued terroristic threats on a number of occasions. But eventually, the FBI canceled that investigation because, in accordance with the tenets of its revised training materials, it concluded that Mateen posed no threat to anyone; that his biggest problem was the psychic pain he was suffering as a result of “being marginalized because of his Muslim faith.” As a result of this absurd line of reasoning, 49 innocent people from Orlando are now lying in their graves.42 
Hillary Clinton agrees completely with the notion that it is both counterproductive and morally unjustified to suggest any connection between Islam and terrorism — the same delusional, preposterous mentality that enabled the Orlando mass murder to take place.  [...] 
Clinton's Role in the Rise of ISIS and the Stratospheric Growth of Worldwide Terrorism 
ISIS, which evolved out of Al Qaeda in Iraq (AQI), grew into the most powerful, well-funded horde of bloodthirsty barbarians in world history, right under Mrs. Clinton's nose, and precisely during her watch as secretary of state. While ISIS launched its campaign of mass rapes, beheadings, slaughters, and tortures of unimaginable brutality — and gained control over enormous portions of Iraq and Syria — Clinton and President Obama did absolutely nothing to thwart it.43 
Moreover, the rise of ISIS coincided with the expansion of terrorism to unprecedented levels all over the world. According to the Global Terrorism Index, fatalities caused by terrorism increased from 3,361 in 2000, to 11,133 in 2012, to 18,111 in 2013, to 32,658 in 2014. More than half of the 2014 killings were carried out by ISIS and Boko Haram, the latter of which has pledged allegiance to ISIS.44 In other words, worldwide terrorism has spiraled out of control under Obama, Clinton, and Clinton's successor, John Kerry.  [...]

Saudis funding 20% of Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign
by Robert Spencer, Jihad Watch, June 18, 2016:

The U.S. imam Warith Deen Mohammed said in 1999: “In Saudi Arabia it’s the Wahabi school of thought…and they say, ‘We’re gonna give you our money, then we want you to…prefer our school of thought.’ That’s in there whether they say it or not. So there is a problem receiving gifts that seem to have no attachment, no strings attached.” 
“Muslims are peaceful and tolerant people and have nothing whatsoever to do with terrorism.” — Hillary Clinton 
“The Clinton Foundation…disclosed in 2008 that it had accepted up to US$25 million from the Saudi Kingdom in the same year. Other foreign governments who have donated money to the Clintons include…Kuwait, Qatar, Brunei, Oman…” 
Hillary Clinton is bought and paid for.

The Case Against Hillary Clinton: Part 1 — The Clinton Culture of Corruption



With the stream of shocking Wikileaks releases of emails from Clinton and her team showing foreign Islamist influence, and illegal collusion between the Hillary Clinton campaign and the DNC and SuperPACs, PLUS recent bombshell revelations that the FBI has reopened its investigation of Hillary Clinton's personal email server and her likely crimes of perjury to deflect questions about it, PLUS the news that the FBI has also been investigating the Clinton Foundation for conflicts of interest and pay-to-play for over a year, there is ABSOLUTELY NO DOUBT that Hillary Clinton should be disqualified from the Presidency.

This is the most corrupt person ever to run for president.

Report: Indictment ‘Likely’ in Clinton Foundation FBI Investigation
by Matthew Boyle, Breitbart News, November 2, 2016:

NEW YORK CITY — Fox News Special Report anchor Bret Baier reports that two sources with “intimate knowledge” of the Clinton Foundation FBI investigation say that an indictment is “likely” down the road in the case. 
“I pressed again and again on this very issue, and these sources said, ‘Yes, the investigations will continue,’” if Hillary Clinton defeats Donald Trump on election day, Baier said Wednesday night. His sources added, as he said, “There is a lot of evidence.” 
“And barring some obstruction in some way, they believe they’ll continue to likely an indictment,” Baier said... 
...Twin reports—from Fox’s Baier and from CNN’s Pamela Brown, who along with her fellow CNN Justice Department correspondent Evan Perez said she talked with a dozen sources in positions of knowledge—confirmed that the criminal investigation into the Clinton Foundation is active, ongoing, and expansive at the FBI. It has apparently been going on for a year, and politically motivated officials at the Department of Justice—controlled by Attorney General Loretta Lynch—have reportedly tried repeatedly to shut it down. But according to another bombshell report from the Wall Street Journal on Wednesday night, FBI deputy director Andrew McCabe would not shut it down, calling it a “validly predicated investigation” in conversations with DOJ officials...

WikiLeaks: Bill Clinton’s Top Aide on Foundation Conflicts of Interests: I Could Name ‘500 Different Examples’
by Jerome Hudson, Breitbart News, October 22, 2016:

Doug Band, once one of Bill Clinton’s closest advisers, accused the former president of having hundreds of conflicts of interest between his family’s embattled foundation, its sponsors, and a connected consulting firm called Teneo Holdings LLC, according to purported emails produced by WikiLeaks. 
“I signed a conflict of interest policy as a board member of cgi,” Band wrote in a November 2015 email to John Podesta. Referring to Bill Clinton as “wjc,” Band wrote, “Oddly, wjc does not have to sign such a document even though he is personally paid by 3 cgi sponsors, gets many expensive gifts from them, some that are at home etc.”

The Wheat and the Tares

"Sir, did you not sow good seed in your field? How then does it have tares?" He said to them, "An enemy has done this..."





Perhaps the strongest refutation of the belief that the Allah of Islam is the same True God worshipped by Christians comes from one of the Lord’s parables:

Another parable He put forth to them, saying: 
“The kingdom of heaven is like a man who sowed good seed in his field; but while men slept, his enemy came and sowed tares among the wheat and went his way. But when the grain had sprouted and produced a crop, then the tares also appeared. So the servants of the owner came and said to him, ‘Sir, did you not sow good seed in your field? How then does it have tares?’ He said to them, ‘An enemy has done this.’ The servants said to him, ‘Do you want us then to go and gather them up?’ But he said, ‘No, lest while you gather up the tares you also uproot the wheat with them. Let both grow together until the harvest, and at the time of harvest I will say to the reapers, “First gather together the tares and bind them in bundles to burn them, but gather the wheat into my barn".’”  
Then Jesus sent the multitude away and went into the house. And His disciples came to Him, saying, “Explain to us the parable of the tares of the field.”  
He answered and said to them: 
“He who sows the good seed is the Son of Man. The field is the world, the good seeds are the sons of the kingdom, but the tares are the sons of the wicked one.  The enemy who sowed them is the devil, the harvest is the end of the age, and the reapers are the angels. 
"Therefore as the tares are gathered and burned in the fire, so it will be at the end of this age.  The Son of Man will send out His angels, and they will gather out of His kingdom all things that offend, and those who practice lawlessness, and will cast them into the furnace of fire. There will be wailing and gnashing of teeth. Then the righteous will shine forth as the sun in the kingdom of their Father. 
"He who has ears to hear, let him hear!"   
(Matthew 13:24-30, 36-43)

When considering this parable in regards to Islam, the tares, or weeds, those similar in basic appearance (i.e., in general monotheistic belief) to Christians, are the followers of Muhammad, who claimed to bring the “Religion of Peace”, yet who used warfare and bloodshed to expand its reach.

Turkey assigns permanent imam to Hagia Sophia to lead daily prayers...

...Turns clock back to 1453 in second conquest of Constantinople. This is effectively a re-conversion of Hagia Sophia back into a functioning mosque after over 80 years.

"Observers are warning about Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan’s increasingly neo-Ottoman stance..." 

This new move by emboldened Islamic supremacist Erdogan will certainly have an impact on Turkey's relations with Russia, as Russia recently urged Turkey to return Hagia Sophia to the Orthodox Church.

Might this be an unfolding of Elder Paisios' prophecy of a war between Russia and Turkey?


Hagia Sophia gets permanent imam as tensions rise in Aegean
Ekathimerini, October 22, 2016:

Dark clouds over Hagia Sophia...


A few months after a controversial decision by Turkish authorities to allow readings from the Quran to be broadcast from Hagia Sophia in Istanbul, reports on Friday said Turkey had decided to appoint a permanent imam for the venue.

According to the Anadolu state news agency, the country’s religious affairs directorate and the mufti of the Fatih district have agreed to assign a permanent imam who will lead five daily prayers, instead of the current two.
