The Truth About the Terror In Turkey

By Brandon Weichert

Publication Date: Monday, June 27, 2016

On June 28, 2016 shots were fired into a crowd of unsuspecting travelers at Istanbul’s Ataturk International Airport, followed by the detonation of suicide bomb vests. Thus far, at least 36 people are dead and 150 or more injured.

Lone Omar and the FBI in Orlando

By Marek Jan Chodakiewicz

Publication Date: Wednesday, June 22, 2016

The American Civil Liberties Union immediately blamed “Christianity” for this horrific murder.  Why? It is because Christianity rejects homosexual relations as sinful. Thus, it is allegedly responsible for the massacre in Orlando. ACLU forgot that Judaism is even more stringent on the matter than Christianity. This is as foul an accusation as the disgusting voices (from a preacher in Sacramento, California, to a youth activist in Kazan, the Russian Federation) who rejoice in the slayings of “the sodomites.” The latter are in congruence with the choir in the world of Islam that the gays had it coming. As for the perpetrator, therefore, Omar Mateen is a pure shaheed (martyr) of Allah.  {read more}
