The framing of Iran by the godless

August 9th, 2015 LAIGLESFORUM Posted in Uncategorized | No Comments »

by Don Hank  August 9, 2015

An article in globalresearch describes Neocon attempts to spread a false narrative (http://www.globalresearch.ca/iran-accused-of-being-behind-9-11-attacks/30777) implicating Iran in the 911 terror, which was perpetrated by 18 terrorists, 15 of whom were Saudis and none were Iranian (their funding came from Saudi citizens). This spinning of narratives to deflect attention from the guilty-as-sin Saudis has been ongoing since at least the 1973 petrodollar agreement (http://laiglesforum.com/how-the-petrodollar-perpetuates-islamic-terror-2/3315.htm).

Recently, a prominent leader of the movement to wage war on Iran told me he thought my writing had a tinge of “anti-Israel” bias. As a Christian, I feel a kinship with the ancient Hebrews that is more intimate than with any others except the early Christians.

The fact is, my bias is strictly biblical and I don’t care one bit what others say, including people calling themselves Christians.

The Orthodox Jews are the only legitimately biblical Jews in the sense that they accept our Old Testament, and Orthodox Jews were the ones who held a protest against Netanyahu’s visit to the US Congress to fan war sentiment. I have two Orthodox rabbis on my mailing list and both of these gentlemen wrote me after reading my article critical of Netanyahu and heartily agreed with me on biblical grounds!

Consider the following from Wikipedia

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Religion_in_Israel

A Gallup survey in 2015 determined that 65% of Israelis say they are either “not religious” or “convinced atheists”, while 30% say they are “religious”. Israel is in the middle of the international religiosity scale, between Thailand, the world’s most religious country, and China, the least religious.[18] The Israeli Democracy Index commissioned in 2013 regarding religious affiliation of Israeli Jews found that 3.9 percent of respondents felt attached to Reform (Progressive) Judaism, 3.2 percent to Conservative Judaism and 26.5 percent to Orthodox Judaism. The other two thirds of respondents said they felt no connection to any denomination or declined to respond.[19]

 

So 65% of Israelis do not believe in the God  of Abraham yet, when demanding US support for their wars, play the part of the “chosen people”!  Israel was indeed  God’s chosen people, but when they fell away from their faith in Him, they lost their blessing and were scattered throughout the earth. A people that does not honor God is no longer His people, although there is hope for their salvation just as there is for all of humanity regardless of their wickedness.

Let us admit as Christians that God did not personally bring a bunch of atheists and non believers together to become the new state of Israel in the sense of a divinely chosen nation. Only those 26.5% Orthodox and 3.2% conservatives could be the true children of God according to Old Testament principles, and their views are not represented in Netanyahu’s Likud Party, which hordes of foolish Christians support without question.

So let’s stop pretending that allowing the Likud (posing as the God-chosen people) to talk America into attacking Iran and Syria, the Muslim countries that are least anti-Christian by far, is God’s will. I can state in all confidence that such is not true.

This is the evil narrative of the Neoconservatives, who have advocated using weak minded Christians as pawns in their unscrupulous game.

http://laiglesforum.com/our-father-commands-be-wise/3377.htm

 

Irving Kristol, dubbed the “godfather” of the (Neoconservative) movement, “has long argued for a much greater role for religion in the public sphere. (using naive Christians to do their dirty work — Don)

At the same time, he stressed that religion was for the masses alone; the rulers need not be bound by it. Indeed, it would be absurd if they were, since the truths proclaimed by religion were “a pious fraud.” [my highlighting] (any “Christian who allows himself to be led around by the nose by such ungodly people is disobeying God and committing a grievous sin! — Don)

 

Jesus commanded us to be wise as serpents. Instead we have chosen to be witless as oxen and obedient to evil contrivers who spin Biblical truths to enslave us in ways that get Middle Eastern Christians and other minorities killed.

There is a way that seemeth right unto a man but the end thereof are the ways of death. Proverbs 16:25 (translated from the Hebrew)

Exclusive story on Syria from contact in Middle East

August 5th, 2015 LAIGLESFORUM Posted in Uncategorized | No Comments »

by Don Hank  August 4, 2015

Just recently it was reported that Putin had said he would not be helping Assad fight ISIS. I also checked the Russian-language sources and they said the same thing. Since Obama and the other Western powers had failed to make a breakthrough in their fight against ISIS, things seemed really bleak for the Christians and other minorities in Syria.

Yet this story was hard for me to swallow. This would have meant that ISIS had almost no resistance in its takeover of Syria. It also would have meant that Putin had sold out Assad. That did not seem possible. Putin simply does not abandon his allies. Besides, the Syrian government site, which I also visited today, did not show any hint of complaints or concerns about Putin or his loyalty. But wouldn’t Assad be worried sick with the entire Western world out to get him even as ISIS carves up  his land? All of this made me suspect that a secret deal was being hatched.

Just hours later, I received the link shown below, which seems to confirm my hunch.

If my Middle East contacts Ghassan and Intibah Kadi have the true lowdown on what is really happening, ISIS could meet some real resistance soon.

It seems there have been high level meetings between the US, Iran, Russia, Syria and Saudi Arabia. I suspect that Putin has secretly brokered another deal, this time with the Saudis, persuading them to join the West and Syria in fighting ISIS (Putin has already met with the new Saudi foreign minister and they have cut important bilateral deals). If that happens, ISIS could soon be history, although I caution everyone not to get too optimistic yet. We can only hope and pray.

At any rate, my friends at Intibah Wakeup have a breaking story for you that you will not want to miss. No Western source that we know of has reported this story so you are among the first to read it here in translation from the Arabic, thanks to that remarkable site:

Saudi’s going for record executions?

August 4th, 2015 LAIGLESFORUM Posted in Uncategorized | No Comments »

by Don Hank  August 4, 2015

Our loyal Neocon press keeps reporting that Iran is the country that heartlessly executes more people than any other country. As usual, this is not quite true. While executions are certainly too high in Iran, our “ally,” Saudi Arabia, seems to be keeping up in that department and may soon pull ahead, as reported here: http://www.rt.com/news/267298-saudi-arabia-100-executed/.

Any writer or “expert” on the Middle East who stresses the shortcomings of Iran and ignores the same shortcomings in the Saudis is just playing along with the Neocon plan of demonizing Shiites while giving Sunnis a pass, to the detriment of the US middle class and world peace. (One important reason for this insane policy is that Shiite Iran is a Russian ally and the Neocons also irrationally hate Russia. Another reason is the petrodollar agreement with the Sunni Saudis: http://www.renewamerica.com/columns/hank/150314. The remedy could be the petroyuan http://www.renewamerica.com/columns/hank/141219).

The elites and their minions in the press almost NEVER remind us that ISIS, Al Qaeda, the Taliban and all the other terror groups that execute Christians belong to the Wahhabi sect of the Sunni branch, the religion of the Saudis, and are sponsored by Saudis. A recent poll in Saudi Arabia shows that 92% of respondents believe that ISIS “conforms to the values of Islam and Islamic law.” http://en.europenews.dk/Poll-92-of-Saudis-believe-that-Islamic-State-conforms-to-the-values-of-Islam-and-Islamic-law-78188.html

Uh oh! Saudi Arabia is our “ally,” while Iran, which is opposed to ISIS, is our “enemy”? This incongruity cannot stand.

While it is true that Iran also has a high execution rate, an important difference, as I have pointed out dozens of times now, is that Iran does not donate one penny to ISIS, never supported the Taliban or Al Qaeda, and its Islamic sect, Shia, does not generally kill Christians for being Christians. Yet our “ally” supports terrorists who DO kill Christians and want us extinct. Tell me that our foreign policy is not a knife aimed at the heart of the American public — the same public that pays the exorbitant bill for its own destruction!

Never in history has a nation aided and abetted the enemy of its culture and religion the way the US government does. If any country had ever done so, it would not have lasted long. The US has resources and a strong military, but if we continue to use our military to aid our enemies and harm our friends, I think you can imagine how long we will last. Already we are being challenged in Eurasia by a dedollarization program that is gaining ground in leaps and bounds. http://www.renewamerica.com/columns/hank/141009

My messages of late have been aimed mainly at waking up Americans to Washington DC’s wholehearted support for our enemies and opposition, often military, to our friends or at least the more tolerant of the Middle Eastern groups.

If our elites don’t stop this deliberate destruction of our culture and our security soon, someone else will stop them.

Stop Iran? How about stopping the SAUDI’S ??

August 1st, 2015 LAIGLESFORUM Posted in Uncategorized | No Comments »

by Don Hank  August 1, 2015

I keep getting requests from different groups, like ACT For America, to support a campaign to reverse the Iran nuclear deal. The groups behind this are all Neocons with an agenda, who think we are idiots who would never notice that Saudi Arabia is the biggest terror sponsor in the world and is supporting the propaganda war against Iran and pretending it is more dangerous than they are. Here is my response to AFA and the person who sent me their request for help.

How about calling your lawmakers and sending them my email message below?

Don

Hello X,

Saudi Arabia is the country that, in concert with the US government, founded the Taliban, Al Qaeda, Al Nusra, ISIS and other terror groups.

IRAN, while it is involved in pro-Palestine actions to counter Israeli moves, NEVER sent the above-mentioned terror groups a single penny!

In fact, the Iranian militias helped fight ISIS in Iran.

Now Saudi Arabia has signed 6 contracts with Russia for the supply of nuclear fissionable materials and the construction of nuclear plants in Saudi Arabia, even as Saudi citizens continue to funnel funds to ISIS (Russia, while having long sided with Iran, has a policy of strict separation between trade and politics). You may recall that, of the 18 terrorists who attacked America on 911, 15 were Saudis. What measures is Act For America taking to counter Saudi-sponsored terror?

Saudi Arabia belongs to the Sunni branch of Islam, and worse yet, to the Wahhabi sect, which has declared permanent war on Christians and Jews. Sunni Wahhabism is by far the most violent and intolerant religion in the world! There are no churches in Saudi Arabia and Bibles are banned. While Iran, predominantly Shia (the more Christians-tolerant branch) also strictly applies Sharia law to Muslims and has committed acts against Muslims just as cruel as those committed by the Saudis, Iran has 600 Christian churches and allows Bibles to be imported.

It may be legitimate to ask Congress to oppose the Iran deal. But what does ACT For America have to say about Saudi Arabia and its nuclear plans?

If Americans insist on opposing the less violent and more tolerant group and supporting the more violent and less tolerant group of Muslims, how can we ever consider ourselves more secure, no matter how strong our military might be?

Peace is kept with intelligent strategies that support ONLY friends, not enemies.

As shown by the article below, every war we fought outside Latin America since 1973 has been to the benefit of the Saudi terror sponsors, who have egged us on against Iran over matters of religion. This is in violation of our First Amendment rights. No American tax dollars should be spent supporting anyone’s religion.

Hispanics the biggest losers in US immigration policy

July 13th, 2015 LAIGLESFORUM Posted in Uncategorized | No Comments »

 

by Don Hank  July 13, 2015

One of the readers in my political list serve sent me a link to a story on how the RNC “congratulated” Donald Trump after his press conference with parents of victims of illegal alien killers. It was a back handed congratulation. In each case, the messages from GOP brass like John Boehner and Jeb Bush to Trump ended with the admonition to tone down the rhetoric. In fact, the thinly veiled message was: stop telling the truth and stick to the GOP talking points.

Trump likes the word “stupid.” For example, he called US trade negotiators stupid for giving other countries economic advantages that disadvantage Americans at a time of crisis when we can ill afford to be so generous. (I had met a high ranking Taiwanese government trade negotiator in Taiwan in the 80s and learned from him how utterly stupid American negotiators were then. Nothing has changed)

The RNC and its minions in the media are also utterly stupid when it comes to immigration. They ignore the fact that Hispanics are the one group that is most afraid of illegal aliens. This is because they live in the same neighborhoods with these violent Hispanic gangs and criminals and fear the violence, and if politicians were even moderately smart, they could capitalize on this fear to educate the public about this violence and advocate for the victims, most of them immigrants themselves, instead of trying to score political points with the uneducated. But they aren’t even moderately smart.

While living in York Country, PA, my wife (Hispanic) and I were close friends with a couple from the Dominican Republic. Like most Hispanics, they were reflexively in favor of illegal immigration and the husband worked with a group that helped illegals stay in America. He was confident that he was doing good. No one had ever suggested the contrary to him. On one occasion when we were discussing illegal immigration, I asked him what he thought of Haitians who entered his country illegally. He hemmed and hawed and said that there were not that many but that some of them were able to get jobs in his country. He wouldn’t admit that Dominicans resent illegal Haitian immigrants, but I told him I knew they did and told him that Americans also resent people entering our country illegally and receiving benefits, eg, health care, that we pay for, refusing to assimilate or identify as Americans first, creating enclaves with alien value systems, bringing in crime and disease with them, etc. He was nonplussed because we had always spoken Spanish with each other and I doubt he had ever heard anyone express opposition to illegal immigration in his own language. Normally, neither Hispanics nor their non-Hispanic friends would ever dare to express that non-PC opinion.

He couldn’t respond. After all, it was my country’s laws we were talking about and I was simply telling him I wanted others to honor them, just as Dominicans want the Haitians to honor their laws. What could he say?

One day the couple and their children moved out of our area to Falls Church, VA, and we didn’t hear from them for a long time. Then one day the Señora called to speak to my wife, who was not home.

I asked her how they liked their new neighborhood and she very quietly said she was afraid for their kids (very young). She said there were dangerous gangs in that neighborhood. I knew exactly what she was talking about and immediately rose to the opportunity to ask what ethnicity these gangs were.

“Hispanic,” she whispered, no doubt afraid someone might hear her. I suspect she was more afraid of what her liberal neighbors would say than what the gangs might do. (Americans live in a terror regime without realizing it).

Ironically, while the RNC dodges the most vital issue of all in the immigration debate, namely, violent crime and violent gangs, it is the Hispanic community that has the most to lose and is frightened of and dismayed at the consequences of our misguided political policies. But because of the sinister silent mandate not to talk about this, neither Hispanics nor other Americans dare to initiate a debate that could eventually lead to a solution.
Thus, ironically, and tragically, both the GOP and the Democrats are pursuing policies of political correctness that gravely harm the constituents they pander to and that, if discussed openly, could lead Hispanics to admit that they are afraid of some of their neighbors and would welcome a solution to the violence problem. But the politicians and their PR group, arrogating to themselves the title of “journalists,” are blocking the discussion that could lead to the solution.

However, the outspoken and savvy Donald Trump has blown the door off the iron cage they have built around the truth.

I do not endorse candidates, but despite whatever faults the Donald might have, he has done America an enormous service in changing the debate.
