Weekly ReCap – 11-14-2008 – The Right and Duty of Self Defense

Praise God that we still live in the land of the free and the home of the brave!

I watched a BBC news story about the conflict in the Democratic Republic of Congo the other night. There were hundreds if not thousands of families living in tents in the middle of nowhere, displaced from their homes because of the fighting.

A group of men were being interviewed. They were afraid for their families and children because the fighting was getting closer and they had nowhere else to run to. You could hear the gunfire in the background during the interview.

My first thought was, “Why wait for ‘official’ security forces to come to your rescue, put all the women and children into the center of the camp and form a defensive wall with all the able bodied men. . .”

“I stationed some of the people behind the lowest points of the wall at the exposed places, posting them by families, with their swords, spears and bows. After I looked things over, I stood up and said to the nobles, the officials and the rest of the people, ‘Don't be afraid of them. Remember the Lord, who is great and awesome, and fight for your brothers, your sons and your daughters, your wives and your homes.’”
- Nehemiah 4:13-14

Praise God for America’s second amendment right to keep and bear arms, and pray that our new government remembers that the right to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed!

. . . the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.
- The Second Amendment to the Constitution of the United States of America

- “Inside a U.S. hostage rescue mission: Exclusive: Spec ops conducts night raid in Afghanistan mountains
Sean D. Naylor, ArmyTimes, 11/08/2008
“The American businessman lay shackled in a mud hut 8,000 feet up a remote mountain in Afghanistan, armed captors posted inside and outside to prevent any escape attempt. . .

On an airstrip many miles away, however, several twin sets of Chinook helicopter rotor blades were starting to turn as about 60 of America’s most elite troops prepared to prove him wrong. Members of a task force that Military Times agreed not to name, the commandos had been hunting for the businessman since soon after he went missing. Now they were ready to act.

This is the story of one of the most daring and successful U.S. hostage-rescue missions in years.”

- “Thousands Flee Congo Fighting
By the Associated Press, Christian Post, 11/6/2008
“KIWANJA, Congo – Sporadic gunfire and explosions echoed Wednesday around this town in eastern Congo, as rebels fought pro-government militiamen for a second day, forcing thousands of people to flee.”

- “U.S. Treasury Department to Host Shariah Compliant Financing Forum!!!
By Brigitte Gabriel, ACT! For America
“. . . in association with the Islamic Finance Project of the Harvard Law School, the U.S. Treasury will be hosting a forum entitled ‘Islamic Finance 101.’

You read this correctly. As the humorist Dave Barry writes in many of his columns, ‘I am not making this up.’

Indeed, despite the fact that we in ACT! for America and others have been warning about the infiltration of shariah (Islamic law) into our society for some time, to witness how quickly it is happening causes me to tremble inside.

Our own U.S. Treasury is hosting a forum aimed at educating ‘staff from U.S. banking regulatory agencies, Congress, Department of Treasury, and other parts of the Executive Branch.’”

- “Shariah-Compliant Finance: ‘Jihad with money’
ACT! For America
“While America struggles with the sub-prime and credit market crisis, Shariah Islamic Finance, also known as Shariah-Compliant Finance, is quickly infiltrating our financial markets – and bringing Islamic shariah law with it. As one leading Islamic authority on Shariah-Compliant Finance has stated, it is ‘jihad with money.’ In a new ACT! for America video, Joy Brighton, ACT! for America’s financial expert on Shariah- Compliant Finance, warns America of this chilling threat.”

- “'Why Believe in a god?’ Ad Campaign Launches on D.C. Buses
AP, FoxNews.com, 11/12/2008
“‘Why believe in a god? Just be good for goodness' sake’”

Editors note: Be good for goodness’ sake? Without God there is no “good” or “evil.” It’s all subjective. In fact, you would be reduced to believing, as Hitler did, that the best “good” would be to advance and evolve the human race, and your own personal genes, at any cost, including over 6 million murders! I guess you would have to pray to, ah, goodness’ sake that you’re not considered one of the “inferior” races! You can learn more about godless ethics in the movie Expelled: No Intelligence Allowed.

Expelled: No Intelligence Allowed (2008) DVD: Big science has expelled smart new ideas from the classroom ... What they forgot is that every generation has its Rebel! That rebel, Ben Stein (Ferris Bueller’s Day Off) travels the world on his quest, and learns an awe-inspiring truth … that educators and scientists are being ridiculed, denied tenure and even fired – for the crime of merely believing that there might be evidence of design in nature, and that perhaps life is not just the result of accidental, random chance. To which Ben Says: Enough! And then gets busy. NOBODY messes with Ben.

Grateful for:

- The Warrior Ethos of the American Citizen, and the men and women of America’s armed forces.
{ Army } { Marines } { Navy } { Air Force }
And I pray there is never an attempt to use them against the citizens of the United States!

- God’s Truth, Justice, Mercy, and Grace!
