If Guns Were Outlawed Only Outlaws Would have Guns

21 07 2012

Demands for gun control are coming out of the woodwork in the aftermath of the Colorado movie massacre. This utterly predictable response has brought into focus several otherwise unrelated events of this past week.

1. Doreen and I had the distinct honor of attending John Hagee’s Christians United For Israel annual Washington, DC Summit. It was thrilling to sit with 5,000 Christian and Jewish Zionists. CUFI now has over 1,250,000 members making it the largest Christian Zionist organization in the world. The keynote speaker was US Representative Michelle Bachman.

2. Next day, Michelle Bachman was publicly and dishonestly attacked  by Senator John McCain. She was accused of personally attacking Huma Abedin (Hillary Clinton Deputy Chief of Staff). McCain was dead wrong. Bachman (member of the Intelligence Committee)  only raised the question of vetting, since Abedin’s father, mother and brother all have proven connections to the Muslim Brotherhood.

3. This week a suicide bomber killed five civilian Israeli tourists in Bulgaria.

4. Yesterday’s movie massacre has led to wall to wall news coverage and demands for gun control.

So, how do I see a common thread between these events? The Bulgaria bombing illustrates a couple of things. Murderers don’t play fair and they usually attack civilians, so-called “soft” targets. This was likewise true in Colorado. The question is: Who is getting on our “bus”? Or, who is sitting in our theater? Or, who is advising our government?

Here is a typical demand for gun control from a New York Times op-ed on the very day of the Colorado tragedy: That James Holmes is insane, few may doubt. Our gun laws are also insane, but many refuse to make the connection. The United States is one of few developed nations that accepts the notion of firearms in public hands. In theory, the citizenry needs to defend itself. Not a single person at the Aurora, Colo., theater shot back, but the theory will still be defended. [emphasis added]

The only trouble with this quote (as pointed out on Breitbart.com) is that: The Cinemark theater chain has a “gun-free zone” policy.

The truth is that the rate of similar shootings has remained constant for decades in the U.S. And in Israel you don’t see a lot of street crime because many Israeli’s carry guns openly. It is an amazing deterrent to gun violence. Had there been  a legal gun in that Colorado theater, the cowardly gunman would have been brought down before he could complete his plan, saving many wounded and presumably even several lives. Therefore, it becomes a classic proof of the much mocked and maligned fact: If guns were outlawed, only outlaws would have guns.

Finally, what does the Bible say on the subject? Exodus 22:2 If the thief is found breaking in, and he is struck so that he dies, there shall be no guilt for his bloodshed. This stipulates it not a crime to defend your home from a thief, even if he dies. 1 Samuel 25:13 reveals that every man owned his own weapon when David led them into battle.

Judges 5:8 reminds us of what happens to a foolish nation that chooses to disarm: They chose new gods; then was war in the gates: was there a shield or spear seen among forty thousand in Israel?

The answer to the rhetorical question is clear: No. The people had rebelled against God and put away their weapons of self-defense. (Full article here.)

Mohammed Morsi’s Wife

1 07 2012

One year and one week ago we learned of the scandal of Rep. Anthony Weiner who is now disgraced and out of office. But the real revelation of that story was about his wife, Huma Abedin, Hillary Clinton’s Chief of Staff. It was the subject of my commentary then and is reprised below for your information.

However, there is breaking news now about a major connection between Huma Abedin’s mother and the new Egyptian President’s wife, Umm Ahmed. Both women are in the top 63 leaders of the Muslim Sisterhood, according to multiple reports. Walid Shoebat broke it first in his blog.

The question then arises as to a type of conflict of interest for Hillary Clinton as Secretary of State. Watch her proclamations about Egypt. Coupled with President Obama’s insistence that the MB attend his Cairo speech in 2009, no wonder this Administration has embraced the Brotherhood in Egypt. This is one to watch.

Anthony Weiner’s Wife June 21 2011 (Re-Posted)

Carefully determine what pleases the Lord. Take no part in the worthless deeds of evil and darkness; instead, expose them. It is shameful even to talk about the things that ungodly people do in secret. But their evil intentions will be exposed when the light shines on them. Ephesians 5:10-13 NLT

I will not comment on the sins of former Congressman Anthony Weiner. The text above is enough said. However, in our sympathy for his new bride expecting their first baby, something has come to light that is not about immorality, but ideology. Walid Shoebat, a Christian ex-Muslim, has just reported that Huma Abedin, the offended wife, is more than simply the loyal “right hand woman of Hillary Clinton”. Born in Kalamazoo, Michigan, she was educated in Jedda, Saudi Arabia from age two to eighteen. Her father was an Islamic scholar of Indian descent while her mother is originally from Pakistan.

The plot thickens with the revelation that her mother is a member of the Muslim Brotherhood in Saudi Arabia, according to Arabic news sources cited by a former Palestinian Liberation Organization operative. Walid Shoebat, an ex-Muslim Brotherhood activist in the Holy Land, translated sources that say Huma Abedin’s mother, Saleha Mahmoud Abedin, a professor of sociology in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, belongs to the Sunni movement’s women’s division known as the Muslim Sisterhood. One of the Sisterhoods aims, reportedly, is “to spread the Brotherhood’s ideology by infiltrating universities, schools and homes.”

The burden against Egypt. Behold, Yehovah rides on a swift cloud, and will come into Egypt; the idols of Egypt will totter at His presence, and the heart of Egypt will melt in its midst. “I will set Egyptians against Egyptians; everyone will fight against his brother,  and everyone against his neighbor, city against city, kingdom against kingdom.the spirit of Egypt will fail in its midst; I will destroy their counsel,  and they will consult the idols and the charmers, the mediums and the sorcerers. and the Egyptians I will give into the hand of a cruel master, and a fierce king will rule over them,” Says the Lord, Yehovah of hosts.The waters will fail from the sea, and the river will be wasted and dried up. Isaiah 19:1-5
