    A week ago Barack Hussein Obama stated that the “world is less violent” during a Tumblr interview session – as his acolytes lapped it up. Is he really that clueless? http://allenbwest.com/2014/06/cluele...violent-video/

    An Open Letter to President Obama: Is the World Really Less Violent?
    10:30AM EDT 6/17/2014 Ron Cantor

    Dear Mr. President,

    Can you please tell me which world you were referring to, when, just the other day, you declared to Tumblr users (I am assuming that Tumblr is not a drug) that the world "is less violent than it has ever been."

    I find it very confusing, because on the one hand you claim you learned about the IRS scandal and the Veteran's Affairs wait-list scandal from the media, and on the other hand, it appears you don't even pay attention to the world news.

    Not only is the world not the safest it has ever been, it is the most dangerous it has ever been! And much of the downfall has taken place with your White House in deeper denial than the former Information Minister of Iraq—aka Baghdad Bob! (Remember him? "There are no American infidels in Baghdad. Never!" Well, you are starting to sound like him.) While you and John Kerry claim, "Peace and safety!" the world is falling into chaos.

    Cairo Speech

    It was just over five years ago, a freshly inaugurated Barack Obama confidently marched into Egypt to give your "A New Beginning" speech to the Muslim world. You should have called it the "I'm Not Bush" speech, because we all know that was its real purpose. That day you boldly proposed "a new way forward, based on mutual interest and mutual respect."

    How's that working?

    Not even the fact that you gave your very first post-inaugural interview to the Arab cable network, Al Arabia, (instead of NBC, ABC or CBS) won you any lasting good will in the Muslim world.

    I don't believe the silly rumors that you are a secret Muslim. You are a humanist. And you were convinced that your human powers of charm and persuasion would cause the Arab world to lay down their weapons. Surely once they see that America is not all "cowboys clinging to their guns and religion." But you see, Mr. President, it takes two to tango, and I don't think Muslims are allowed to dance.

    Nobel Peace Prize, Yet No Peace

    For all your rhetoric you were richly rewarded, as if you actually changed something on the ground, but your reward did not come from the Arab countries seeking peace and repudiating radicalism. Instead, the Nobel Peace Prize folks crowned you the Prince of Peace 2009, and gave you a million dollars. How does their press release from 2009 sound now?

    "The Norwegian Nobel Committee has decided that the Nobel Peace Prize for 2009 is to be awarded to President Barack Obama for his extraordinary efforts to strengthen international diplomacy and cooperation between peoples. ... Obama has as president created a new climate in international politics. ... Dialogue and negotiations are preferred as instruments for resolving even the most difficult international conflicts. Only very rarely has a person to the same extent as Obama captured the world's attention and given its people hope for a better future."

    My goodness, it's like they were declaring you Messiah! Sounds pretty funny now, right? If only al-Qaida had as much faith in you as the Norwegians did.

    Let's just take a look at what has happened in "Obama's World" since you were awarded for your "extraordinary efforts to strengthen international diplomacy."

    ◦There was an attack by al-Qaida on Sept. 11, 2012, on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya, that left an ambassador, a staffer and two Navy Seals dead—two Seals who were protecting U.S. diplomats, while they awaited help that never came. It was followed by, what many see, as a cover-up by your administration. You, Jay Carney and, who can forget, Sunday Morning Susan (Rice), emphatically and repeatedly declared—even after all the evidence was pointing to a coordinated terror attack—that it was merely a spontaneous uprising because of an anti-Islam YouTube video. (As if people getting so angry over a video that they kill Americans is so much better than terror.)

    ◦Civil war has erupted in Syria, resulting in more than 150,000 deaths of innocent noncombatants, creating a refugee crisis of nearly 10 million people. Even chemical weapons have been used to kill innocent children.

    ◦Egypt, the Middle East's largest country, went through a revolution that propelled the terror group Muslim Brotherhood into power. While they systematically persecuted their own people, trampling their democratic freedoms, your administration stood by them because they were "democratically elected." When the military responded to the pleas of the people, your team stood with the Hamas-aligned Brotherhood.

    ◦Also in Egypt, we continue to see the systemic persecution of Christians by Islamic groups. Read this harrowing account of the murdering a young Christian woman by an angry horde of Muslims.

    ◦Meanwhile in Iran, human rights are denied to citizens, and Christians are persecuted. Iran continues to make advances in their efforts to build a nuclear bomb, while John Kerry makes deals with the devil and declares triumph.

    ◦Mass shootings in America are becoming a regular occurrence. I remember when a mass shooting was shocking. Now it is just news.

    ◦In Nigeria, nearly 300 schoolgirls were kidnapped and could be sold as child brides. (Yes, in the "least violent time in world history," little girls are forced to marry older perverts.) The Nigerian terror group Boko Haram has continued to attack Christians in Nigeria, killing over 12,000 people.

    ◦Putin, thumbing his nose at you and the West, marched into Crimea and took sovereign Ukrainian territory by force. In a city where my family and I lived for a year, Odessa, 42 people were killed on May 4. Putin's actions are reminiscent of the Cold War and many analysts (not in your White House, of course) are convinced he wants to return Russia to her former glory—by force.

    ◦And this week, even as you proclaimed with the tumblrites, with your head fully entrenched in sand, that the world was the safest it has ever been, an al-Qaida-affiliated group known as The Islamic State in Iraq and Syria, (ISIS) is taking over Iraq one city at time. This group is so violent, that even al-Qaida considers them radical! You were so eager to be the anti-Bush and get our troops out of Iraq, that you left the nation vulnerable.
    Whether for or against the Iraq war, one thing is now clear: it was for naught. Reports of Iraqi policemen laying down their arms and deserting are a clear sign we had not finished the job. Today we see thousands of Iraqi soldiers have been executed by fellow Muslims. How in the world did your intelligence agencies not see this coming?

    I could go on and talk about North Korea, Cuba, the three teens kidnapped by Hamas this week in Israel, and the spread of Islamic nationalism in Africa, but I know you are enjoying your vacation and don't want to bring you too close to the depressing reality, lest it affect your golf game.

    My focus is on ministry. I write about faith. But every now and then, something happens in which I feel compelled to use this platform to speak out.

    Your administration sought to befriend the Muslim world. It earned you a million bucks and a trophy, but resulted in zero change on the ground. In fact, the world is in its most perilous moment in history. Never has there been so many radicals on earth with weapons of this magnitude. Yes, quite the opposite of your utopian view.

    With the handing over of five terrorists for a deserter at best, and a traitor at worst (without any counsel from Congress or the intelligence community), you have set the stage for American travelers—innocent men, women and children—to be kidnapped and held for ransom by the most vicious, evil people on earth. Two weeks after you released these killers, an American (and two Israelis) have been kidnapped by Hamas. While they may have been wanting to kidnap Israelis for some time, I can imagine that there were encouraged by your reckless, autonomous behavior.

    No, Mr. President. You are dead wrong. The world is not the least violent it has ever been—it is the most violent. It is powder keg ready to explode—and this is your foreign affairs legacy.

    48 Kenyans dead: Witness: Gunmen spared Muslims
    Associated Press By TOM ODULA June 16, 2014 8:06 AM

    NAIROBI, Kenya (AP) — Dozens of extremists attacked a Kenyan coastal town for hours, killing those who couldn't answer questions about Islam and those who didn't know the Somali language, officials and witnesses said Monday. At least 48 people were killed and two hotels were set on fire.

    The assault in Mpeketoni began Sunday night as residents watched World Cup matches on TV and lasted until early Monday, with little resistance put up by Kenya's security forces. Cars and buildings still smoldered at daybreak. Authorities blamed al-Shabab, Somalia's al-Qaida-linked terror group, who have vowed to carry out terror attacks to avenge the Kenyan military presence in Somali. Along with its Somali fighters, the group also has many Kenyan adherents.

    Like the gunmen who attacked Nairobi's Westgate Mall last year, the Mpeketoni attackers gave life-or-death religious tests, a witness said, killing those who were not Muslim. "They came to our house at around 8 p.m. and asked us in Swahili whether we were Muslims. My husband told them we were Christians and they shot him in the head and chest," said Anne Gathigi.

    Another resident, John Waweru, said his two brothers were killed because the attackers did not like that the brothers did not speak Somali. "My brother who stay next door to me were killed as I watched. I was peeping from my window and I clearly heard them speak to my brothers in Somali and it seems since my brothers did not meet their expectations, they sprayed them with bullets and moved on," said Waweru.

    At the Breeze View Hotel, the gunmen pulled the men aside and ordered the women to watch as they killed them, saying it was what Kenyan troops are doing to Somali men inside Somalia, a police commander said on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to share such details of the attack.

    Kenya's top police commander, David Kimaiyo, said the death toll was 48. A police spokeswoman said authorities believe that several dozen attackers took part. Mpeketoni is about 20 miles (30 kilometers) southwest of the tourist center of Lamu. Any tourism in Mpeketoni is mostly local, with few foreigners visiting the area. The town is 60 miles (100 kilometers) from the Somali border and 360 miles (600 kilometers) from the capital, Nairobi.

    Kenya has experienced a wave of gunfire and explosive attacks in recent months. The U.S., U.K., France, Australia, and Canada have all recently upgraded their terror threat warnings for the country. U.S. Marines behind sandbag bunkers are now stationed on the roof of the U.S. Embassy in Nairobi. The Interior Ministry said that at about 8 p.m. Sunday, two minivans entered the town. Militants disembarked and began shooting. Kenya's National Disaster Operations Center said military surveillance planes were launched shortly afterward.

    Lamu is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and is the country's oldest continually inhabited town. The region saw a spate of kidnappings of foreign tourists in 2011 that Kenya said was part of its motivation for attacking al-Shabab in Somalia. Since those attacks and subsequent terror warnings, tourism has dropped off sharply around Lamu.

    At least 67 people were killed in September when four al-Shabab gunmen attacked an upscale mall in the Kenyan capital, Nairobi. Kenya sent its troops to Somalia in October 2011.

    Iraq crisis: ISIS militants tell families to hand over daughters for sex
    Militants claim that the women must sleep with them in order to cleanse themselves

    ANI | London June 23, 2014


    ISIS fighters have told families in Iraq to hand over their daughters for sex, saying that the women must sleep with militants in order to cleanse themselves. According to the Mirror, leaflets in the captured cities of Mosul and Tikrit claim the women - virgins or not - must join jihad, or Holy war, and cleanse themselves by sleeping with militants.

    Last year, a Saudi-based cleric issued a fatwa allowing jihadists to rape women in Syria. The practice is now happening in Iraq.

    It is claimed that the militants have warned that those who refused to abide by the fatwa were violating God's will, and would be beaten and killed.

    Meanwhile, ISIS fighters yesterday seized key towns near Baghdad and took control of three out of four border crossings to Syria this weekend, the report said.

    Ramadan in Nigeria: Massive Attack on Five Churches;
    Boko Haram Burnt Five Churches, Over 100 Worshipers Killed During Sunday Service


    The jihadists “are still in pursuit of the remaining villagers.”

    And so the ramadan bombathon is upon us. With the advent of the Obama presidency and the attendant surrender to Islamic supremacists, jihadists are slaughtering and conquering with impunity. There is nothing to stop them now. And they know it.

    Remember, Obama said Boko Haram has “legitimate concerns.”

    Boko Haram: 100 feared killed as insurgents attack Chibok
    By Maina Maina,Daily Post, June 29, 2014

    (thanks to Kenneth)


    Five churches, including COCIN, EYN and Deeper Life Bible Church, in Kwada village about 10 kilometres from Chibok town, were on Sunday attacked by Boko Haram insurgents.

    The attackers, according to report from locals in Chibok, targeted the time when worshipers were ready for the Sunday Service.

    “They killed and burnt houses after attacking worshipers in five churches in Kwada; after that, they advanced to Kautikari, less than 8 kilometres to Chibok town, whey they equally killed people and destroyed properties. “I’m not sure security agencies have gone to rescue the villagers, but I learnt that the insurgents are still in pursuit of the remaining villagers”, Mallam Yahi told DailyPost.

    It was gathered that residents of Chibok town have also fled their homes, following the news of the attacks in Kwada and Kautikari. DailyPost recalls that few weeks ago, there was panic in Chibok Local Government Area of Borno State, following a letter purportedly written to them by the sect members.

    A top local government official in Chibok town, who did not want his name in print revealed this to newsmen in Maiduguri the Borno State capital on Sunday. According to him, when they met the police with the letter, they were assured of maximum protection. He, however, said the police were also complaining of fuel for their vehicle. He said the local government had also assured the security operatives that they were going to buy fuel for them.

    He said, “whenever Boko Haram members tell you that they are coming, they never fail to come. Our fears now is that we don’t know when and how they are going to come. “We are calling for prayers as well as on government to provide us with adequate security in Chibok”.

    On the ongoing attacks in the area, it was gathered that a police officer, Peter Maina was called out during Sunday service in Church in Maiduguri, to be informed that his brother was killed at Kwada. Meanwhile, the Chibok Community in Maiduguri broke into a session of prayer on Sunday after receiving the news of ongoing attacks on the two villages. -

    I do not believe we can simply ignore what is metastasizing before our very eyes. ISIS has declared a caliphate that covers 600 miles and is actively seeking English-speaking Western recruits http://allenbwest.com/2014/07/21st-c...tern-recruits/

    Imam Of Virginia Mosque (One of Largest in USA) Calls For Armed Jihad…

    Sheik Shaker Elsayed, the imam of the Dar al-Hijrah Mosque in Falls Church, Va., advocated armed jihad before an Ethiopian Muslim group gathered at T.C. Williams High School in Alexandria, Va. last week.

    “Muslim men when it is a price to pay, they are first in line,” Elsayed said in comments seen on a YouTube video found by the Creeping Sharia blog. “They are the first in the prayer line. They are the first in the zakat (charity) line. They are the first in the hajj line. They are the first in the clean-up line. They are the first in the community-service line. They are the first in jihad line. They are the first in the da’wa line.”

    “But they are last if anything is being distributed, unless it is arms for jihad,” Elsayed said. “We are the first to rush and run to defend our community and defend ourselves. The enemies of Allah are lining up; the question for us is, ‘Are we lining, or are we afraid because, because they may call us terrorists.’”

    Being called “terrorists” should not matter to Muslims because Muslims are being called terrorists anyway, Elsayed said. “You are a terrorist because you are a Muslim,” Elsayed said. “Well give them a run for their money. Make it worth it. Make this title worth it, and be good a Muslim.”

    The mark on this house is not a smiley face. Islamists in Mosul marked homes of Christians in Mosul to ensure efficient elimination. They have succeeded

    Islamist’s Christian cleansing in Mosul complete
    Written by Allen West on July 23, 2014

    Over the weekend I posted a statement about the latest actions of the Islamic terror group ISIS, now known as the Islamic State (IS). The group has resorted to the time-honored tradition of jihadists to force conversion, subjugation by collecting a the “jizya” tax, or death.
    https://www.facebook.com/AllenBWest/...52902682831729

    That, my friends, is the Islamist version of “coexist.” Therefore, Iraqi Christians, Assyrians and Chaldeans, who have lived in those lands centuries before the emergence of Islam and Mohammed, are now being forced to flee for their lives. Their homes and possessions are being taken by these Islamic jihadists — those wonderful emissaries of the “religion of peace.”

    As confirmed by ijreview.com,
    The Iraqi city of Mosul that was quickly taken by ISIS terrorists is now free of Christians for the first time in history, after they were given a warning to either convert, pay the al-Jizya tax that non-Muslims pay to live under their rule, or “face the sword.” http://www.ijreview.com/2014/07/1585...rt-face-sword/
    A similar report comes from the Islamist-friendly Al Arabiya:

    “Christians were fleeing Iraq’s jihadist-held city of Mosul en masse Friday after mosques relayed an ultimatum giving them a few hours to leave, the country’s Chaldean patriarch and witnesses said. “Christian families are on their way to Dohuk and Arbil,” in the neighboring autonomous region of Kurdistan, Patriarch Louis Sako told AFP. “For the first time in the history of Iraq, Mosul is now empty of Christians.”

    “We were shocked by the distribution of a statement by the Islamic State calling on Christians to convert to Islam, or to pay unspecified tribute, or to leave their city and their homes taking only their clothes and no luggage, and that their homes would then belong to the Islamic State,” Sako said.”

    So, I must ask, where are the statements of condemnation from CAIR, ISNA, MPAC, MAS, and the other U.S.-based Muslim Brotherhood front organizations? I think you all know the answer. Heck, where is the condemnation from President Barack Hussein Obama? You can bet that if the situation were reversed, the entire world would be screaming and condemning Christians — but hey, these are Muslims, they’re free to do as they wish. Just look at the condemnation of Israel, a sovereign state, being attacked by an Islamic terror group, Hamas. Whose side is conducting protests in Paris, London, and in front of the White House?

    Oh, I know, I’m the “islamophobe” because I refuse to just sit back and take it. I’m a warmonger because I believe one must fight for survival, especially against an enemy sworn to your destruction. Say what you will, but I will not be called an apologist and certainly not a dhimmi.

    We saw this before in the 20th Century when Jews were driven from their homes, given notices, and labelled — the same is happening now in Iraq. Those who say they don’t care and that it’s not our problem represent that which is the worse amongst us. You can see here pictures and Twitter posts evidencing the targeted labeling of homes. Churches are being destroyed. And this is not just happening in Iraq as Boko Haram continues to murder Christians in Nigeria. http://www.ijreview.com/2014/07/1585...rt-face-sword/

    Where is our media on this? Where is the outrage? Silence is consent.

    To my Christians brothers and sisters I apologize. I apologize that we have a progressive, socialist, and Islamist sympathizer as a president, leader of a party that is godless and has enacted a war on Christianity all in the name of secular humanism. I apologize that the efforts of my fellow warrior brother and sisters who served and fought in Iraq now appear to have been for naught, at the expense of our freedom, security and safety. I apologize that these historic enclaves, nearly 2000 years old, are being erased from the face of the earth by these Islamic jihadists.

    From my humble home in South Florida I lift you up in prayer before our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. But know you may find strength in the words of Romans Chapter 8, verses 28-39 — especially, verses 36-39, ” As it is written: “For your sake we face death all day long; we are considered as sheep to be slaughtered.” No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us. For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future,nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.”

    God be with you all!

Her death sentence was overturned in June, but she was then stopped at the airport and blocked from leaving the country by Sudanese officials who questioned the validity of her travel documents.

    Pope Francis thanked Meriam for her "courageous witness to perseverance in the Faith.

    Watch what you post on FB pages -- especially if you live in Pakistan.
    A Muslim mob killed a woman and two children over a Facebook post.





    We know about the Islamic persecution of Christians happening in the world — well, I presume we all know about it. In case you don’t, read this http://allenbwest.com/2014/07/islami...osul-complete/ or this... http://allenbwest.com/2014/06/u-s-wa...uation-speech/

    But my wife Angela brought to my attention another kind of religious persecution at the hands of Muslims — this time from Pakistan. According to a report from the UK Independent, http://www.independent.co.uk/news/wo...n-9633511.html

    ” a woman, a child and a baby have died in Pakistan during riots over an allegedly blasphemous Facebook post. Their home was one of several set on fire in the city of Gujranwala on Sunday and another woman miscarried during the violence.”


    “The woman, her seven-year-old granddaughter and her baby sister died of suffocation, according to police officials. The victims were members of the Ahmadi religious sect, who identify with Islam but are widely regarded as heretics in Pakistan and face persecution. Ahmadis consider themselves Muslim but believe in a prophet after Mohammed, the self-proclaimed Ghulam Ahmad, who was born in 1835. He is not defined as a “law-giving” prophet but claimed to propagate the laws enunciated by Mohammed.”

    “The sect is defined as non-Muslim in Pakistan and a law in 1984 made it illegal for Ahmadis for identify as Muslims or “pose as Muslims.” They are banned from using Muslim greetings, saying Muslim prayers or referring to their places of worship as a mosque. Salim ud Din, a spokesman for the Ahmadi community, said it was the worst attack on the community since simultaneous attacks on Ahmadi places of worship killed 86 Ahmadis four years ago in Lahore.”

    If there is any way I can make a comparison in America, it would be like Christians attacking and making laws against Seventh-Day Adventists or the Church of Latter Day Saints (Mormon Church).

    The Independent reports “the episode began based upon rumors spreading that a young Ahmadi man, identified as Saqib, shared a blasphemous picture on Facebook, Pakistan Today reported. It allegedly included the Kaaba — the cuboid building at the centre of the Grand Mosque in Mecca that Muslims face in prayer – and contained nudity. A mob reportedly gathered outside Saqib’s house and started protesting. When they moved to a doctor’s house where Ahmadis were thought to be hiding, someone inside reportedly shot at the mob and injured the man who had started the Facebook rumor. The group then set five Ahmadi houses on fire, killing the woman and children and injuring several others.”

    Pakistan’s blasphemy laws carry a potential death sentence for anyone accused of insulting Islam, although they also cover all religions and places of worship. However, in this case it seems Muslim mob violence carries the day and isn’t interrupted by the local police. Mr. Salim ud Din stated, “Police were there but just watching the burning. They didn’t do anything to stop the mob. First they looted their homes and shops and then they burnt the homes.”

    Accusations of blasphemy are rocketing in Pakistan, from one in 2011 to at least 68 last year, according to the Human Rights Commission of Pakistan. About 100 people have been accused of blasphemy so far this year. I think America went through this stage long ago during the Salem witch trials, and I’m quite sure now, as then, many of the accusations had everything to do with vendettas and little to do with faith.

    We may be in the 21st Century but many still live back in the 7th Century. At least we have the 21st Century technology to bring awareness of these egregious actions worldwide. The question is whether or not the civilized world will do anything about it.
