Fishwrap of the Day

I get about 800 pieces of email a day from all over the world. Very little of it is personal. Friendly souls in Europe, the Middle East, the Far East, and in North and South America hunt down headlines for me. I am rapidly losing my sight in the effort to keep up with the headlines, not to mention with the in-depth articles in tiny print with important footnotes.

Why suffer so much knowledge alone? Thus, I have decided to pass some choice tidbits along to you on a regular basis. Hopefully, someday, people will send me news about wedding and birth announcements and when they do, perhaps I’ll pass that along to you too.

My choice today concerns Chicago based news which comes to us from the excellent Aaron Klein of WND in Jerusalem; news of a conference in Uganda to spearhead a further Islamification of Africa; news from Naples, Italy concerning a hardening of Saudi policy towards other religions; and news from the grisly propaganda mills of the Palestinian Authority via Palestinian Media Watch.

Have a Happy Purim, a Good Shabbos, a Good Friday, and a Happy Easter.

Obama church published Hamas terror manifesto

JERUSALEM – Sen. Barack Obama’s Chicago church reprinted a manifesto by Hamas that defended terrorism as legitimate resistance, refused to recognize the right of Israel to exist and compared the terror group’s official charter – which calls for the murder of Jews – to America’s Declaration of Independence.

The Hamas piece was published on the “Pastor’s Page” of the Trinity United Church of Christ newsletter reserved for Rev. Jeremiah Wright Jr., whose anti-American, anti-Israel remarks landed Obama in hot water, prompting the presidential candidate to deliver a major race speech earlier this week.

KAMPALA, Uganda: In his drive to spread Libyan and Islamic influence in Africa, Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi inaugurated a huge new mosque in this predominantly Christian country Wednesday, with several African heads of states attending and scores of Arab journalists flown in for the occasion.

Packed in Kampala’s soccer stadium, a crowd estimated at 10,000 to 15,000 chanted “long live Brother Gadhafi” before the Libyan leader delivered an hour-long lecture on the meaning of Islam.

(ANSAmed) – NAPLES, MARCH 20 – A resolution calling for the enactment of an international pact to forbid religions from being defamed or insulted as well as their symbols, leaders and prophets has been voted out by the Saudi Shoura (Consultative Council). A total of 77 members opposed the recommendation while 33 voted in favour, online newspaper Gulf News reports. According to the opponents, such a pact would force people to recognise religions, which advocate idol worship, and that “would be unacceptable.”
