Christian pastor jailed for faith as Iran cultural agency promotes “tolerance”

Pastor Saeed Abedini, wife Naghmeh and their children. (Screen snip from video at the American Center for Law and Justice)Governments often promote rhetoric at odds with their policies, and Iran’s recent jailing of a U.S. Christian pastor is a perfect example.

The American Center for Law and Justice published a story about Pastor Saeed Abedini who was thrown into jail without formal charges after he evangelized in Iran where he was born and grew up. Abedini is a U.S. citizen now, having come to America for the same reason the country’s first Europeans came—freedom of faith.

Meanwhile, IRNA, the official government news agency in Iran, published a story about the First International Baku [Azerbaijan] Forum on 'State and Religion: Strengthening Tolerance in the Changing World'.

Comments by the head of the Islamic Culture and Relations Organization indicate Iran’s public statements contradict official policy on people of other faiths.

CAIR-Michigan a defendant in lawsuit over event shutdown

David Horowitz who is Jewish had an exchange with this young woman when he gave a speech at the University of California-San Diego in 2010. The young woman said she was a member of the Muslim Students Association, and she invited Horowitz to Hitler Youth Week.(Screen snip from video)A new lawsuit has been filed after the Council on American-Islamic Relations-Michigan was allegedly involved with others in shutting down a public event that included the participation of Act! For America.

CAIR is a Muslim advocacy organization; AfA is a Western advocacy organization.

The Thomas More Law Center issued a statement on Friday about the suit naming CAIR-MI and its executive director, the city of Allegan (MI), the Allegan Police Dept. and the School District as defendants. The lawsuit alleges the accused committed both constitutional (civil rights) and contract violations.

The event titled ‘Constituting Michigan—Founding Principles Act,’ featured three speakers on January 26, 2012. Organizers had rented the auditorium at Allegan High School. The presentations also included information about the compatibility of Sharia and Western law.

Obama and Clinton’s foreign policy spells clampdown on rights at home, abroad

Dr. Walid Phares not only predicted the Arab Spring, he predicted the uncertainty that would follow. [Book cover from WalidPhares.com]Democrats have already put the so-called ‘Arab Spring’ behind them. Fact is it isn’t over and the outcome is uncertain.

In Egypt a businessman named Naguib Sawiris will soon go on trial for Tweeting a message about a cartoon of Mickey and Minnie Mouse. Mickey had a beard and Minnie wore a veil in the cartoon. A group of Islamist attorneys is reportedly suing the business leader who could actually go to jail.

One great barrier in any scenario where East meets West is freedom of speech. Countries with Muslim majorities do not permit practices a Westerner takes for granted—criticism or ridicule of the majority faith is not acceptable.

The Obama administration's political appeasement of groups like the OIC is basically creating special status for one faith.

South Carolina anti-foreign law bill justified by court cases

New study determines Islamic sharia law is utilized in courtrooms across the country – in violation of constitutional rights.

Image of copy of the US Constitution from the Library of Congress.The South Carolina state legislature is considering a bill that would bar foreign laws – such as Islamic sharia law – from conflicting with U.S. and state laws. Opponents of the legislation claimed that such a bill is unnecessary as sharia law would never be used in violation of American laws and argued that such a law would be unconstitutional. They are wrong on both counts.

SC Senate bill 444 does not violate rights of Muslims, though Jihadists would have us believe otherwise.

The SC Senate is currently debating legislation that would ban the enforcement of foreign and religious laws - including Islamic sharia law – but opponents claim the bill would violate the constitutional rights of Muslims. Nothing could be further from the truth.

US leadership lapse in quran burning

Updated on Monday, April 4, 2011 at 2:32PM by Registered CommenterKay B. Day, Editor

Many of us in the U.S., regardless of our faith, viewed with despair the Quran-burning pastor’s actions —we knew innocents would likely die. President Barack Obama and others have spoken about the pastor, in the fall when he first threatened the burning and recently after he carried through with it.

There is however a lapse in US leadership regarding appropriate responses to the burning. The lapse creates a dangerous window that should concern all Americans.
