88 schoolgirls in India forced to strip as punishment by teachers

(THIS ARTICLE IS COURTESY OF THE PAKISTANI NEWSPAPER ‘DAWN’ WHO IS OBTAINING INFORMATION FROM THE INDIAN NEWSPAPER THE ‘HINDUSTAN TIMES’)

 

Scores of schoolgirls in India were allegedly abused earlier this month as they were forced to strip in front of other schoolfellows at a girls’ school in India’s Arunachal Pradesh state, Hindustan Times reported on Thursday.

Around 88 students studying in class VI and VII were subjected to the worst humiliation as a punishment for allegedly writing vulgar remarks against the head teacher.

According to Hindustan Times, it was assumed that the remarks were written by an unidentified student and that she was present among those students who were forced to strip in front of other schoolfellows.

The news report further added that three teachers of Kasturba Gandhi Balika Vidyalaya, Tani Happa (New Sagalee) in Papum Pare district forced the girls to undress on November 23.

Police officials said that the matter came to light four days later when a student body approached the police and filed a First Information Report in this regard, it added.

The complaint alleged that two assistant teachers and a junior teacher subjected the students to humiliation after the teachers recovered a piece of paper with vulgar remarks on it about the head teacher and a girl student.

Tumme Amo, a Superintendent of Police, confirmed the FIR and said that the case had been forwarded to the women police station. “The officer-in-charge of the [women] police station said the victims and their parents along with the teachers will be interrogated before registering a case,” Amo said.

All Papum Pare District Students Union (APPDSU) said in a press release that a team of the union had met the students and teachers on Tuesday, and found that an unidentified student had used vulgar words in a piece of paper mentioning the name of the head teacher and a student.

Subsequently, the teachers demanded an explanation from all the students of the two classes and later made them undress, it added.

“The school authorities did not speak to the parents of the students before punishing them,” APPDSU president Nabam Tado was quoted as saying.

Indiana teacher busted after being caught on camera doing drugs in classroom

An Indiana high school teacher got more than detention when she was arrested after a video posted to social media allegedly showed her doing drugs in an empty classroom.

Samantha Cox, a 24-year-old teacher at Lake Central High School in the town of St. John near the Illinois border, was arrested on Wednesday for possession of a controlled substance and drug paraphernalia.

The English teacher was allegedly caught doing drugs after students filmed her with a phone from outside the classroom, according to Fox 32 Chicago.

“It’s absolutely, I can’t’ really describe it. It’s just atrocious,” Kasia Firlej, a parent of a child at the school said to the local news channel.

The video, which made rounds on social media, shows a woman alleged to be Cox sitting in the corner of the classroom using narcotics. It was not immediately clear which substance she was taking.

Police in St. John responded to a call late Wednesday morning about the situation.

A second cellphone video shows the teacher being led out of the school wearing handcuffs.

The incident led Lake Central superintendent, Dr. Larry Verraco, to send out a recorded message on Wednesday afternoon to parents.

“Earlier today, Lake Central administration was made aware of a situation regarding a teacher at Lake Central High School,” Dr.Verraco said in the message. “Swift and forceful action was taken in conjunction with St. John and Dyer police departments. The safety of all students remains the top priority of our school staff and a full investigation is ongoing.”

Cox is being held at a local jail pending charges.

The investigation is ongoing.

The Hindu Yoga kundaLini Spirit; And The Christian Church

(THIS ARTICLE IS A COPY PASTE OF AN ARTICLE WRITTEN BY ANDREW STROM IN NEW ZEALAND, THE ARTICLE IS THROUGH ‘CHRISTIANS TOGETHER’)

Kundalini spirits in the church?

Andrew Strom has re-ignited concerns which have surfaced periodically since the time of the Toronto Blessing in 1994. The outspoken New Zealand preacher has written a book entitled ‘Kundalini Warning’ which suggests that false spirits are invading the church.

Ed. Foreward

kundaliniI researched the New Age Movement (and its associated eastern spiritualities) back in the late 80s/early 90s and spoke, (by invitation at that time) to many church groups on the subject.
Awakening the Kundalini is the expression used by mystics,  Hindu gurus and New Agers for the practice of focussing on a ‘serpent spirit’ which, they say, resides in each one of us in the form of a coiled snake located at the base of the spine. Through meditation and physical body positioning the aim is to ‘raise the Kundalini’ through a total of seven spiritual waypoints – called ‘Chakras’ – located along the spine.

The aim is to elevate the Kundalini spirit to the ‘Crown Chakra’ which is located at the top of the skull. Those who have gone through this process have described it as ‘mind-blowing’.
I threw the ‘best’ book I had on the subject into the waste bucket as I didn’t want it in my home, and I wouldn’t want to quote from it in this article anyway.

The practice, which is spiritually dangerous in the extreme, is often linked with Yoga-like exercises associated with eastern meditation and mysticism. Chanting and essentially self-hypnotic routines can be a ‘way in’.

Andrew Strom believes that these phenomena – stretching back to the Toronto Blessing – represent the ‘worst invasion [of deceiving spirits] in church history’ and, in his concern, goes as far as controversaly ‘naming names’. It is up to the reader to exercise his/her own discernment on all that is contained in the following.

KUNDALINI WARNING – Urgent

-by Andrew Strom.

Kundalini1I just saw the video of Rick Joyner announcing that Todd Bentley is back ministering every night at Morningstar in North Carolina and now they have so-called “revival” manifestations eerily similar to Lakeland. They also announced that they are streaming these big meetings every night on their new TV channel – and they are greatly promoting the whole thing.

Now I am a tongues-speaking Pentecostal myself – but can I ask a simple question here please? What kind of “spirit” was it operating in the Lakeland revival – when the leader and main focal- point of the meetings (Todd Bentley) was having an adulterous affair behind the scenes? Was it truly the “Holy” Spirit that was anointing something so sensual and unholy? And now that Todd divorced his wife and married his mistress – are we supposed to welcome him back and this “anointing” with him? What is going on here? Rick Joyner has been warned very specifically by high- level ministries not to do what he is doing now – bringing Todd Bentley back into the limelight. And yet it seems he does not care. Apparently the “manifestations” are all that matter.

So what exactly are these ‘manifestations’ if they are seemingly at home in such an unholy environment? Are they from God at all? (I am talking here about the violent “jerking”, uncontrollable laughter, bodily contortions, drunkenness, ‘portals’, strange “angel” encounters, etc.) Why do we not see such an ‘anointing’ in the Bible? Why aren’t Jesus or the apostles promoting these manifestations if they really are true Revival? Why instead do we see these things all the way through the New Age and Hinduism, etc? Do we not realize that many false religions have their own version of “laying on of hands” that results in these very types of manifestations? This ‘spirit’ is not in the Bible – but it is all the way through Kundalini-type Hinduism! Don’t you think this should alarm us?

WHAT is KUNDALINI?

Chakras2If you search for Kundalini and Shakti on the Internet, you will find that multitudes of people in the New Age and Eastern religions still experience these powerful manifestations. Often this is with the help of a Guru, who touches them on the forehead so that they can experience a “Kundalini Awakening”.

As researcher Robert Walker wrote in 1995: “The meetings which mystic Hindu gurus hold are called ‘Darshan’. At these meetings devotees go forward to receive spiritual experience from a touch by the open palm of the hand, often to the forehead, by the guru in what is known as the Shakti Pat or divine touch. The raising of the spiritual experience is called raising Kundalini. After a period when the devotee has reached a certain spiritual elevation they begin to shake, jerk, or hop or squirm uncontrollably, sometimes breaking into uncontrolled animal noises or laughter as they reach an ecstatic high. These manifestations are called ‘Kriyas’. Devotees sometimes roar like lions and show all kinds of physical signs during this period. Often devotees move on to higher states of spiritual consciousness and become inert physically and appear to slip into an unconsciousness.”

And as the guru Shri Yogãnandji Mahãrãja wrote: “When Your body begins trembling, hair stands on roots, you laugh or begin to weep without your wishing, your tongue begins to utter deformed sounds, you are filled with fear or see frightening visions. the Kundalini Shakti has become active.”

In China there is a popular Kundalini-type movement called ‘Qigong’. When a Chinese Qigong spiritual master spoke in the USA in
1991, the San Francisco Chronicle reported that many in the crowd began to experience “spontaneous movements”. The master told his audience, “Those who are sensitive might start having some strong physical sensations – or start laughing or crying. Don’t worry. This is quite normal.”

When you see videos of these “kriyas” or other Kundalini-type manifestations, you would often swear that you are watching a modern “Impartation”-type church meeting. (And I say this as someone who believes strongly in the gifts of the Holy Spirit. I just don’t believe in “alien” anointings infiltrating the Body of Christ! There is a big difference between Kundalini and the real Holy Spirit).

Since 1993-4, I believe a foreign spirit has been allowed to invade the church – first through Rodney Howard-Browne’s ministry – then Toronto, then the Prophetic movement (which I was part of at the time) and on into Lakeland and many other ministries and movements. I urge people now to “test the spirits” just as we are commanded to in Scripture. Do not let just anyone lay hands on you. This is a powerful spirit and it has the backing of a lot of big-name ministries. In fact, these men and women are the very ones responsible for allowing it to spread right through the body of Christ. And one day they will be answerable to God for doing so.

We are specifically warned in the Bible that the Last Days will be a time of “seducing spirits,” false prophets, ‘lying signs and wonders,’ and that we always need to watch for “angels of light” masquerading as the real thing. Why does the modern church not take these warnings seriously? Aren’t we living in the very days that the Bible warns about?

Right now I need to do something that I have never done in such a way before. I have never before published a list of ministries or movements to watch out for. But this time I have to. This sickness has gone on long enough. I urge you to cut yourself off from the following ministries and their tainted “anointings” my friends. Even though some of these people say “good things” at times, it is simply not worth having any involvement with them due to the tainted anointing that they endorse or minister in themselves. Here is the list-

(1) Todd Bentley.
(2) Rodney Howard Browne – the so-called “Holy Ghost Bartender.”
(2) Rick Joyner or anyone connected with Morningstar Ministries.
(3) John Arnott & any connected with TACF (The “Toronto Blessing”).
(4) Peter Wagner of the ‘New Apostolic Reformation’ who claims to be head of a worldwide network of ‘apostles’ – who publicly endorsed Lakeland and will soon preach at Toronto TACF alongside other “false anointing” advocates.
(5) Mike Bickle and IHOP Kansas City (-I lived nearby for over two years – and know how much they are into all this stuff. Mike Bickle promotes it in his book).
(6) Bob Jones – the Kansas City prophet whose ministry is utterly tainted by it all.
(7) Patricia King and anyone else from ‘Extreme Prophetic.’
(8) John Crowder & anyone connected with “Sloshfest.”
(9) Bill Johnson of Bethel church, Redding – who says some good things but publicly endorsed Lakeland and promotes the “false anointing” very strongly behind the scenes.
(10) Heidi & Rolland Baker of IRIS Ministries – who do good work amongst the poor in Mozambique – but who have also carried and promoted this tainted anointing for years.
(11) Randy Clark, Wes & Stacey Campbell, and other key figures from the “Toronto blessing.”
(12) The Elijah List – and almost anyone featured on it.

Of course there are a huge number of lesser-known preachers and ministries who carry or endorse this Kundalini-type “anointing” around the world. But I have concentrated here on the most influential that I know of. It really is an enormous issue in the church. I urge anyone who is a supporter of any of the above ministries to really check them out thoroughly. If you find (as I have) that they carry or endorse this false Kundalini spirit in the church, then please stop supporting them in any way – and whatever you do, don’t let them “lay hands” on you!

I am putting everything on the line to be “naming names” like this. But I believe it is that serious. How on earth did we get to the point where “kriyas” just like Hinduism are spreading through the church?
These people are trying to “relaunch” this whole thing right now. To see a video showing “kriyas” and other Kundalini-type manifestations, please click on the Youtube links below-

Andrew Strom is founder of RevivalSchool.com and the international REVIVAL list. He was involved for 11 years in the same Prophetic movement as Todd Bentley until he left over what he saw as the unbiblical and bizarre phenomenon within that movement. His article originally entitled ‘Why I left the prophetic movent’ has since been published in book form with the title ‘True and False Revival’.

Seer, Go by your instincts and leave well alone. It is never appropriate for any follower of Christ to ‘hiss’ or make any kind of uncontrolled movements, other than an already present medical condition. Not every Christian will be healed – that is not scriptural and we only need to read about Paul to know that. Nothing wrong with praying for it though and, indeed, I am in that position myself.

Unfortunately, the kind of atmosphere which is created in these types of service lend themselves to the kind of behaviour you describe. Everyone wants a ‘spiritual’ experience but there’s more than one kind of spirit and it seems that many are unable to differentiate. Any church which plays the same music over and over again is, in my mind, to be avoided. It is well known that repetitive music playing like happens in these churches will whip people into a frenzied and hypnotic state and leaves them wide open to possession.

Editor 03/03/2014 09:43
Seer, there are twin and opposite dangers in all of this, and the earnest believer can either end up accepting something which is not of God and/or alternatively rejecting something which is of the Holy Spirit.

While I don’t like using labels these dangers are normally and respectively found on one side or the other of the charismatic divide.

Non-charismatics have the tendency to dismiss (and discredit) everything that is beyond their personal experience. (At a guess I would say because such things are a threat to their personal security i.e. if it hasn’t happened to me I am in some way ‘incomplete’; or if I haven’t heard it taught it must be wrong.)

Meanwhile, those in charismatic circles are prone to throw discernment to the wind in order to enthusiastically embrace the next ‘new move of God’.
Leaders in the charismatic churches have seen the whole movement fade since the heady excitement of the 60/70s, and now have a tendency to motivate their people by continually stirring and expectancy of the next ‘wave of the Spirit’.

I realise that this is not of much direct help to you in identifying what is ‘of God’ and what is not. However Penny writes good advice above.
The great need – growing greater by the day – is for discernment. If you have concerns then that itself illustrates an unease. In the Christian walk we often have to listen to the voice of the Spirit. He will put a ‘check’ into our hearts if something is ‘not right’. Alternatively look for the peace of God as a confirmation of something which you feel is ‘of God’.

You will realise that by saying these things I am inviting flak from both sides of the debate, but I am more concerned about the spiritual welfare of the body than I am about entrenched positions.

I will publish (d.v.) a piece from the late Derek Prince on this topic which you may find of help.

does anyone have any information to give someone who desperately needs to escape from people who say they are of god but are not? my family is involved with what is false, pentecostal but their works do not line up with the bible, they are given to crazy and dangerous spirits. i love them so much and feel so bad for them, i have not wanted to hurt them for years and have waited on the Lord, believing that they surely can’t be as lost as they seem… i have fasted and prayed for years to get this spirit out of my life, but it works through my family to keep me in bondage and i cannot escape, and i doubt anyone will believe me when i say this but i’m telling the truth… this is the most evil, deceptive spirit in the world; it lies in wait until it sees you have gathered enough strength to escape and then works behind the scenes to strike and make sure you don’t escape. i need help, i don’t have a church or anyone to go to, it seems like all of the churches in the town where i live are more concerned with what it false that what is true. i don’t know where to go for help, if anyone has any advice or resources to offer i would be appreciative (no more craziness please). would be willing to leave the state at this point, if i could find safety and deliverance somewhere.

Re editor’s comments made 3/3/14 para.3. What evidence or experience has helped to form your opinion? It looks like arrogance although I very much doubt that you are arrogant.
Editor 16/07/2014 11:20
RF – To which ‘opinion’ are you referring? Also I need to point out that am not prepared to dialogue with those who are not prepared to identify themselves to me.
RF (Guest) 16/07/2014 13:29
I am referring to your opinion as expressed in the first sentence of the paragraph in question. As for identity I’m RF and am asking a sincere question; however life moves on so not to worry.
Editor 16/07/2014 16:10
RF, I am (genuinely) sorry if your initials should mean something to me, but they don’t (other than the several people I know which have these characters in their name.

If you are referring to my view “non-charismatics have the tendency to dismiss (and discredit) everything that is beyond their personal experience”, then I would reference people I know, books I have read, sermons that I have heard, etc. etc.

As a ‘for example’ many years ago a minister in my circle of contacts spoke strongly against the gifts of the Spirit, until that is his daughter was ‘miraculously’ healed through believing prayer of an otherwise incurable condition.

Now I am not saying that we should shape our doctrines from ‘experiences’ but what I am saying is that we should be very careful in speaking against something which is beyond our personal experience.

However from a scriptural standpoint and the testimony of countless saints over the centuries I am convinced that the gifts of the Spirit are operational today.

Hope this helps. (And I really can’t afford to spend any more time on the question.)

‘Please stop having children you aren’t willing to raise’

(THIS ARTICLE IS COURTESY OF THE WASHINGTON EXAMINER)

 

Sen. John Kennedy: 

Imagine that you’re the parents of four children under the age of eight. Your home is strewn with stuffed animals and sippy cups. And, if you’re a couple named Colby and Lacey (a real couple from Utah), you keep drug paraphernalia next to the bassinet and smoke heroin in front of your children.For the life of me, I don’t know why anyone who is an addict would decide to become a parent and bring an innocent child into his or her sick drug den. My only conclusion is that some parents figure someone else will raise their children while they do drugs, drink, party, commit crimes, Snapchat, plant fake crops on FarmVille, and do anything but parent. They’d rather have the latest and greatest iPhone than help their children figure out eighth-grade algebra.

Thankfully, that’s not most parents in Louisiana, but it describes too many.

Life is precious. Anyone who’s looked into a newborn’s innocent eyes should realize how incredible it is to be blessed with a new life. That couple named Colby and Lacey allegedly gazed into their newborn’s eyes and then rubbed drugs into the child’s gums to hide the fact that she had been born addicted to heroin. Nurses say some parents do this all the time to hide their infant’s withdrawal symptoms.

Here’s my advice to couples like Colby and Lacey: Stop having children if you don’t plan to raise them.

A lack of good parenting sense isn’t just a problem for Colby and Lacey. Last month, an eight-year-old girl tested positive for cocaine in Baton Rouge, La., after a relative brought her to the hospital because her mother refused to do so. When authorities located the mother, she had cocaine and drug paraphernalia in her possession.

My heart aches for that child. At eight years old, you should be playing games, painting your fingernails purple, getting glitter on everything, and learning how to bake cookies. The last thing you should be doing at that age is testing positive for cocaine.

I don’t know that mother’s story, but I do know that she failed her child.

Too many parents are failing their children these days in Louisiana. Thousands of children are in the state’s foster care system. A woman in West Monroe was just honored for mothering 100 foster children over the years. Think about that: That one woman had to do the parenting for countless parents.

Too many people treat parenting like it’s the 20th item on their to-do list. Their social life, drug habit, and sleep schedule matter more to them than their children do. Talk to teachers and they’ll tell you: Children show up unbathed, unfed, and unprepared at school when they show up at all. Sometimes the system catches them and shuffles them into a foster home. Tragically, sometimes the system fails them like their parents did.

It’s not fair to those children, and it’s certainly not fair to our communities. Those children grow up broken. They don’t glue themselves together and get a scholarship to Louisiana State University. They often drop out of school, do drugs, commit crimes, and hold down minimum-wage jobs. They’re flushed down the toilet before they’re potty trained, and then taxpayers are left to take care of them.

Studies of high-performing schools tend to find a common thread: parental involvement. Those same studies show that the more interest you have in your children’s education, the better they do in school. The Southwest Educational Development Laboratory found that a family’s income does not determine how well kids score on tests or how often they show up for school. The determining factor is parental involvement.

Abraham Lincoln is a good example of the benefits of parental involvement. Lincoln easily could have died an illiterate farmer. He grew up on the frontier, where schoolteachers made sporadic appearances and lost his mother at a young age. An uneducated woman named Sarah Bush turned the tide for him. Sarah married Lincoln’s father and encouraged a rather feral Lincoln to nurture his love of reading. She thrust books in front of him. She ensured that he had a comfortable home and treated him like he was her natural child. That’s good parenting, and it helped shape Lincoln into one of this country’s greatest presidents.

But you don’t have to raise a future president. You just have to raise a child who has a little common sense, graduates from high school and stays off the road that leads straight to prison and drug addiction.

We launch public awareness campaigns to encourage people to recycle their soft drink cans, stop smoking and wear seat belts. Maybe we need to launch campaigns to encourage people to raise their children. Most Louisiana parents don’t need that encouragement. But if we are honest with ourselves, we have to admit that some do.

Having children is a blessing. Treat your children like the blessings they are or don’t have them at all. Our foster care system and jails already are at capacity. There’s no more room at the inn.

Everything Trump Just Said About His Education Is A Lie: Facts Prove It

(THIS ARTICLE IS COURTESY OF THE WEBSITE ‘IMPEACH TRUMP NOW’)

 

Trump Says He Went to “Ivy League”, Has a High IQ, and Was “First in My Class”…So We Checked The Dean’s List

Share on Facebook
Tweet on Twitter

 

“People don’t understand, I went to an Ivy League college. I was a nice student,” Trump told reporters Wednesday. “I did very well. I’m a very intelligent person.” Later, pointing to his head, he added: “One of the great memories of all time.”

Well, not only did Trump NOT go to an Ivy League school, we have some evidence that his college professors may not have thought much of him either.

“Donald Trump was the dumbest goddamn student I ever had.”
Those are the words of the late Wharton professor William T. Kelley, who had Trump in class.

Kelley made the comment while Trump was already a public figure, but had not yet ventured into politics.

Professor William T. Kelley taught Marketing at Wharton School of Business and Finance, University of Pennsylvania, for 31 years, where he retired after in 1982.

Frank DiPrima says Dr. Bill was one of my closest friends for 47 years when we lost him at 94 about six years ago.  Bill would have been 100 this year.

Donald J. Trump was an undergraduate student at Wharton for the latter two of his college years, having been graduated in 1968. www.thedp.com
Daily Kos reports:

Professor Kelley told me 100 times over three decades that “Donald Trump was the dumbest goddam student I ever had.”  I remember his emphasis and inflection — it went like this — “Donald Trump was the dumbest goddam student I ever had.”

Dr. Kelley told me this after Trump had become a celebrity but long before he was considered a political figure.  Dr. Kelley often referred to Trump’s arrogance when he told of this — that Trump came to Wharton thinking he already knew everything.

Trump has long touted his being at the top of his class – which has been disproven – and just recently touted how high IQ is by challenging the Secretary of State of the United States to an I.Q. contest after he was called a “moron” – or a “fucking moron” as reported by Slate.

Dr. Kelley’s view seems to be shared by other University of Pennsylvanians.  Please see www.thedp.com/…, from the Daily Pennsylvanian, stating:

Another biographer, Gwenda Blair, wrote in 2001 that Trump was admitted to Wharton on a special favor from a “friendly” admissions officer. The officer had known Trump’s older brother, Freddy.

Trump’s classmates doubt that the real estate mogul was an academic powerhouse.

“He was not in any kind of leadership. I certainly doubt he was the smartest guy in the class,” said Steve Perelman, a 1968 Wharton classmate and a former Daily Pennsylvanian news editor.

Some classmates speculated that Trump skipped class, others that he commuted to New York on weekends. . . .

1968 Wharton graduate Louis Calomaris recalled that “Don … was loath to really study much.”

Calomaris said Trump would come to study groups unprepared and did not “seem to care about being prepared.”

Tillerson and Dr. Kelley are both right.

Important little fact check…

Trump: “I was first in my class.”
Fact Check: False. Trump has long claimed that he was first in his class at Wharton in 1968.  It’s simply not true. In fact, the Dean’s list from Wharton, 1968, doesn’t include the name “Trump” either, meaning not only was he not first in his class, he wasn’t in the top 15%.

Pages from the 212th Commencement show President Donald Trump as a 1968 Wharton graduate, but that he graduated without honors.

The Daily Pennsylvanian reports:

“I recognize virtually all the names on that list, ” 1968 Wharton graduate Stephen Foxman said, “and Trump just wasn’t one of them.”

1968 Wharton graduate Jon Hillsberg added that there was no indication on the 1968 Commencement Program that Trump graduated with any honors. A copy of the program acquired from the Penn Archives lists 20 Wharton award and prize recipients, 15 cum laude recipients, four magna cum laude recipients and two summa cum laude recipients for the Class of 1968. Trump’s name appears nowhere on those lists.

“If he had done well, his name would have shown up,” Foxman said.

“The tribal nature of Arab societies is deeply embedded in the past”

(THIS ARTICLE IS COURTESY OF AMIR AT THE WORDPRESS BLOG OF SEELISTENUNDERSTAND)

 

Post-Oct. 19th 2017
1. Dr. Salman Masalha, an Israeli Druze literary intellectual, argues: “The tribal nature of Arab societies is deeply embedded in the past, and its roots date back through Arab history to the pre-Islamic era. … Since Arab societies are tribal in nature, the various forms of monarchies and Emirates are the natural continuation of this ingrained social structure in which tribal loyalty comes before all else.”
2. Mamoun Fandy, an Egyptian-born American scholar, wrote in the Saudi newspaper Asharq Al-Awsat:
“The Arabs, even after the arrival of Islam, were never “ideological” people who seek to develop an intellectual vision of ourselves and the outside world. Instead, we are the people of blood relations and family ties, or “Shalal” as we call it in Egypt. … Despite the fact that Islam was the greatest intellectual revolution in our history, we, as Arabs, have succeeded in adapting Islam to serve the tribe, the family, and the clan. Islamic history began as an intellectual revolution, and as a history of ideas and countries; however, after the beginning of the Orthodox Caliphate, it was transformed into a somewhat tribal state. The State of Islam became the Umayyad State and after that the Abbasid, the Fatimid, and so on and so forth. This means that we now have a history of tribes instead of a history of ideas. … Has this tribal history, alongside tribal and family loyalties and the priority of blood relations over intellectual relations went forever after the “Arab spring?” Of course not; what has happened is that the families and tribes have dressed themselves up in the cloak of revolutions in Yemen and in Libya, and in Egypt, the opposition consists of tribes rather than concepts.”
The history of the Middle East, the centuries of tribal wars, and the ongoing fissures in Arab society all testify to the Arab tribal culture and structural opposition. There may have been good reasons to stick with tribal culture and organization in pre-modern times: states and empires were despotic, exploitative, and heavily dependent on slave-labor, and tribal organization gave some people a chance to remain independent. In recent times, with the modern state model, governments in the Middle East have tried to establish states, but these have foundered on tribal loyalties and oppositions, which do not fit with constitutional states. Rulers in the region have all turned to coercion to maintain their positions, making all Muslim states in the region despotic. Many Middle Easterners see the disasters around them, and blame outsiders: “It is the fault of the Jews”; “The British did this to us”; “The Americans are to blame.”[5] Many Western academics and commentators say the same, dignifying this counter-historic theory with the label “postcolonialism.” But given that tribal dynamics were dominant in the region for a thousand years since the foundation of Islam, and thousands of years before that, blaming outsiders for regional dynamics is hardly credible. Nonetheless, “postcolonialists” will claim that pointing to regional culture as the foundation of regional dynamics is “blaming the victim.” We in the West, unlike Middle Easterners, love “victims.” But what if Middle Easterners are victims of the limitations and shortcomings of their own culture?
3. October 11, 2016, Australian writer and blogger Petra Liverani writing at off-Guardian said: “One of the most prominent gatekeepers of 9/11 truth is Noam Chomsky. In this article, I will analyze two videos (watch below) of Chomsky speaking about 9/11. What can be observed is that Chomsky consistently avoids discussing hard evidence, exempting himself with the spurious claim that he has insufficient technical expertise to make a judgement, and takes refuge in fallacious argument which falls into two categories: strawman (arguing against a misstated or invented argument from the other side) and argumentum ad speculum (arguing an hypothesis after the fact which may well be contrary to the facts but, in any case, avoids dealing with the actual facts). At the core, Chomsky is being dishonest.” Note: Prof. Noam Homsky is Jewish Prof, that was born and grown up in Israel, studied and lectured in Israel before he became anti-Israeli/pro-Muslim propaganda. He supports anti-Israeli movements. Please pay attention to the last word in the above piece. The word “Dishonest” says much more than the word. It presents the mood.
4. Arab murdered another Arab. The guns in the Arab sector in Israel works overtime. The victims are mostly Arabs. The Arabs collected the arms to fight Israel, but they have no complaints against Israelis, so they aim it at their own people. Due to the vast use of arms by Arabs against Arabs, the Arab Knesset members apply to the police to collect the arms. The police call all Arabs to hand the arms. The result was that one old pistol and one hand grenade were returned. The reason is that the Arabs want to keep the arms against other people of them. Yesterday one more Arab was shot to death. He was known to the police. His family was informed about it, so they rushed to his home, broke into railway while a train was in high speed and 3of them are hospitalized. I write it in order to let you understand that these people have no rule as they behave the Quran way:” Harb” which means “war”. This is their main motive.
5. A Palestinian stabber was shot while trying to stab. He was rushed to the hospital. No Israeli casualties.
6. Another Arab was shot to death by his opponents is a fight between 2 Arabs clans from the same village. Another 8 people, from both sides, were wounded. This is the culture of the Quran that calls for a war that causes all these results.
7. And: Another Arab, aged 25, was charged for rapping of a girl of fewer than 14 years old. Well, if prophet Muhammad married a 4.5 years old Jewish girl, as told in the Quran, a 14 years old girl suppose, according to this code, be mature for sex. The funny/strange thing is that the very same Arabs prohibit their children of having sex before they get married. If they do they very often, get murdered, by their family, because of not keeping the family honor. But in the same time, girls, not from their seed family, can be rapped. This is the double standard that the Muslims keep not just in sexual life. It is their style of life.
8. Israel is listed at the top of the list of people that carry academic degree. Maybe this is one of the reasons why Israel is called the High-Tec nation. Anyway, the export of Israeli technologies is just next to the USA.
9. The Israeli wrestler, Daniel Lishinsky (43) was honored with the gold medal in a Greek-Roman style. He reached the final. His opponent in the final contest suppose to be Iranian, but he did not show up, So the Israeli was ranked 1st.
10. To all of you that blame Israel for not being Humanitarian and or liberal I direct you to the “Jewish spirit”. If you know it, than compare the Judaism to other religions. If you don’t know, it’s a problem as to study it will consume a lot of time. But it pays as the Judaism is very intelligent and interesting religion. The ethic and cultural way gives a breath of freshmen to the other religions. The Judaism is identified with a religion of culture. So everybody that want to survive not in war the Judaism suite him very much. We can see it from the long history of the Jews. In spite of all the riots and other obstacles the Jews still survive and bloom. Why? Because of the cultural part of the religion. Actually it is much more: More and more people, in the world, recognize Israel like the only sensible entity in this part of the world. In the past the Arabs managed to blame Israel and describe it as the guilty for the ongoing wars. But today the people see that Israel is the only reasonable place in this stormy part of the world. Quarter Israel is recognized as a world asset. It will never be recognized by UNESCO as long as the Arabs have there the majority. Why it will not? As UNESCO does not fulfill its original aim which was to look and find the unified between men and to improve the relations. They failed. Why? Because of the composition/mix of the representatives in this house. Israel and UNESCO can survive without each other. If Israel leaves UNESCO she will take with her the “Light of the people” as written in the bible and will stay with it and this will get the way to Israel while the entire of the world will remain in darkness.
11. Israel is now in the 3rd phase of removing the mines that were installed in the Golan Heights by the Syrians. In couple of months everybody, including the Syrians themselves will be visiting the place safely. This is another major difference between Israel and Syria, that is in common with all Arabs: They do everything to ruin while we, Israel, do our utmost to improve.
12. Israeli delegation to the conference of Parliaments members, that took place in Moscow, was forced to leave/evacuate the conference room due to Muslim countries interferences/disturbs and threatening. Again, this just shows you the way of the Muslims that instead of talking/discussing/listening they adopt the war way as/that was dictated in the Quran.
13. The Palestinians and Hamas are in fight, for many years, although they suppose be friends because they claim that they are brothers. Egypt was doing enormous efforts to establish peace between these 2 enemies. They came to some sort of agreement, concerning the establishment of peace. In this agreement there was a secret annex, in which the Fatah will take the lead, Hamas will hand its arms to Fatah and Fatah will keep the security of the Palestinians. Such secret agreement does not work. So, the entire of the agreement is going to collapse just 4 days after it was signed. This is one more negative face of the Islam.
14. The main point is that many leaders in the world consider the Arabs as another nation on earth. This is a fatal mistake. If we examine carefully the history of the Muslims we see very clearly a very slippery deterioration of these people/nation/religion as from the developed/leading position that they use to take in the past to the lowest point that they currently stand. The relations in the Arab world consist of family relation not of national relations. It means that there is a permanent fight who will have higher position/honor in the family and in the community. This is a lousy fight as instead of putting all efforts to improve the situation/condition of the general public. Due to it Hamas is having troubles choosing their leader. This was the reason for the last war and the deterioration of the economic situation. This deterioration was the reason why the proud Hamas agreed to sign the peace agreement with the Fatah. The Fatah pressed Hamas to the floor by not paying their water, power and fuel bills to Israel and to Egypt. The current dispute between Hamas and Fatah is because Fatah didn’t transfer the promised money that should improve the bad/hard situation of the leadership and the citizens. It is important to make clear that Hamas was/is getting funds from various foreign states, that, pity, donor Hamas with money that goes to build tunnels, in the underground Gaza, to fight Israel, instead of rebuilding the ruined homes of their citizens, above the surface. Following repeated requests some of the European states stopped funding the tunnel. Another interesting point is that the leaders of the world are doing substantial efforts to keep the friendship of the Arabs. The only reason is that the Arabs are very good customers of food. They have many mouths to feed so they need much food and this creates vast money to the food producers. These also increase/deepen the influence of the seller on the buyer. This relations suites many states so they apply, following Muslim’s requests, to Israel to make concessions to the Arabs. We must remember. Again, that the motto/aim of Hamas, as declared by them, is to ruin Israel and kill all Jews. So, living with such declarations, not being afraid of it, Israel will do nothing to help/improve Hamas situation as long as they don’t change their ideology against Israel and stop being a terror movement. The requested change consist of stopping attack Israel from Gaza by any of the mini-terror groups, disarmed Hamas and officially recognize Israel as the state of Jews. In general the agreement is looked like a sailing ship that is conducted by couple of captains. Such a ship will get, unfortunately, for the sake of the sailors, nowhere.
15. BDS??? Ha, Ha, Ha!!! They applied for permission to stick anti Israeli propaganda in the railway/subway stations in London. They were totally refused by the municipality of the city. Just to remind you, the Mayor of London is a Muslim. Another Israeli victory against another BDS defeat. Let’s pray for many events like this.
16. Apartheid in Israel: 2 Arab sisters studied in Israeli university and became the 1st 2 sisters, women, dentists. Apartheid???
17. Protalix is an Israeli pharmacy company that developed the PRX-102. Its stock market jumped by 32% after it was announced that they signed a sale agreement with an Italian company. The agreement value is $450 million + royalties. The medicine treats the contamination of fat in different cells that cause pains and cancer.
Pray for peace.

King Salman Stresses That Science And Knowledge Promote Coexistence

(THIS ARTICLE IS COURTESY OF THE SAUDI NEWS AGENCY ASHARQ AL-AWSAT)

 

Moscow – Asharq Al-Awsat

Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques King Salman bin Abdulaziz stressed that science and knowledge are the basis for the renaissance of nations.

Tthey factor in through the formation of educated generations leading communities, promotion of tolerance and coexistence among peoples, and preservation of achievements of civilization.

In a speech delivered after receiving an honorary doctorate from the Moscow State Institute of International Relations (MGIMO), King Salman said that education and knowledge are the key promoting tolerance and coexistence.

“I am honored today to be with the scientists and scholars of the Russian Federation and I would like to express appreciation to the institute for granting me this doctorate,” he said.

“We proudly commend the efforts of our Islamic nation in different scientific fields. In the Kingdom, we give a lot of importance toward raising new generations capable of facing today’s challenges. I call on universities and scientific institutes in the two countries to communicate and cooperate in order to serve the Russian and Saudi people, and the whole world.”

MGIMO granted the king the doctorate in honor of his role in promoting peace and stability, and strengthening Saudi-Russian relations.

The celebration was attended by the king’s Saudi delegation, and Russian academics and officials presided over by the institute’s rector, Anatoly Torkunov, and Russian Minister of Education Olga Vasileva.

The institute is one of the most important educational institutes in Russia, and is internationally known in the diplomatic and international relations fields. In 1944, it was founded on the basis of the recently established School of International Relations of the Lomonosov Moscow State University.

In 2016, MGIMO signed a cooperation agreement with the Prince Saud Al-Faisal Institute for Diplomatic Studies at the Saudi Foreign Ministry.

The Guinness Book of World Records acknowledged MGIMO for the number of languages it teaches — 53.

Since its establishment, the institute has graduated more than 40,000 students in all fields, including 5,500 foreign students and some well-known politicians and journalists.

The institute was dubbed the “Harvard of Russia” by former US Secretary of State Henry Kissinger because it educates so many of Russia’s political, economic and intellectual elite. It has the lowest acceptance rate and highest test scores of any university in Russia.

TEEN IS REJECTED PRIOR TO HOMECOMING DANCE, BUT WHEN A STRANGER PULLS UP…

TEEN IS REJECTED PRIOR TO HOMECOMING DANCE, BUT WHEN A STRANGER PULLS UP, HIS MOM LOSES IT

Most people look forward to a high school dance. Some people, like myself, appreciate the ask more than the actual dance. Knowing someone actually said yes to you does wonders for your self-esteem.

But for 17-year-old Daniel, he didn’t get that yes he was hoping to receive. In fact, he was turned down by several girls. The reason? He has Down syndrome.

But just as he began to give up hope, 10th grader Kylie asked Daniel for the honor of taking him to the dance. Kylie sees Daniel as Daniel and nothing less. “I don’t think of kids that have a disability… I don’t think of them as being different,” She said. “I hope I can make his night fun.”

Kylie’s actions left Daniel’s mom, Tonya, jaw dropped. Asking Daniel out of sympathy is one thing, but Kylie is actually encouraging and joyful about the whole event. “It’s not about that Daniel has a disability. Its Kylie didn’t see any disability. That is what your heart wants as a mom.”

The entire ordeal exploded when FOX5 Surprise Squad caught wind of Kylie’s act of kindness. Just before the dance, Fox5 showed up with a night FULL of surprises, most of which left Tonya in happy tears. The night began with the couple being driven in a beautiful Rolls Royce and went out to be majestic.

At Least 21 Students And 2 Adults Die In A School Fire In Malaysia

(THIS ARTICLE IS COURTESY OF CNN)

 

Kuala Lumpur (CNN) At least 21 students have been killed after a fire broke out at a school in the Malaysian capital of Kuala Lumpur early Thursday morning.

When emergency responders first arrived on the scene, “almost 90% of the building was already on fire,” a Fire and Rescue department official told reporters. Two adults also died in the blaze.
“The firemen could hear cries for help from inside the building,” spokesman Soiman Jahid said. “The first team from (the) fire station managed to save five of the children from the lower level.”

Fire damage at the school.

Jahid said firefighters found bodies in three different locations, all of them badly burned. A large number of victims found were piled on top of each other, while another was discovered in front of the main door.
“Based on my observation, the building has grills that could not be opened from inside,” he said. “Because of the grills, they could not escape through the windows, except for the five students who escaped through the door and sought help from the firemen.”
Photos from the scene showed fire damage to the top floor of the three-story Tahfiz Darul Quran Ittifaqiyah school. Emergency services were still at the scene mid-morning local time.

Norhayati Khalid talked to CNN on her way to hospital to identify the body believed to be her son, 11-year-old Amin Ashraf.
She said she’d last seen Amin on Wednesday afternoon when she’d given him some food and drink and he’d passed her a note to say he loved her and his siblings.

School should not have been in operation

Malaysia’s Minister of Urban Wellbeing, Housing and Local Government, Noh Omar, said there have been 29 similar incidents in the past involving fires at religious schools.
The school’s license was being reviewed by the authorities and it should not have been in operation, Noh told reporters.
Six students and a member of the public were injured in the incident, Malaysia’s official Bernama news agency reported.

Firefighters at the scene of the fire

Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Razak expressed his sympathy for those affected on social media.
“Deeply saddened to hear Darul Quran Ittifaqiyah Tahfiz Center burned and that more than 20 lives were lost. May their souls be blessed by Allah SWT. Al Fatihah,” he wrote on Twitter.
Malaysian media earlier reported that 25 people were killed, 23 students and two wardens.
