Experts Anxious Over Possible Net Attack

Will Episcopalians Elect a Gay Bishop?
That's what Albert Mohler is asking on Crosswalk. As I may have said before, the crisis of doctrine had to come someday, and here we are. The Archbishop of Canterbury knows that his Anglican Communion is ready to explode, and all he can do is send some pathetic letter to all the Anglican primates (the Presiding Bishop of the Protestant Episcopal Church of the USA could also be called "the Primate of America") imploring them not to do anything that "would lead to a break in fellowship." O-ohh, puh-leeeaze.::Submitted for your itching ears [2 Timothy 4:3-4] files.
The Cyber Safety Zone: Video Game Alternatives
From CBN's news division. The worst thing about video games today is their content, which has gone beyond the fanciful space opera of Asteroids to be just plain sick. But a number of developers have decided that video games can sound a Christian theme. Is there anything to this? You decide.
Church of England urges debate on sex and money
From the London Daily Mirror. Clearly the Church of England has slipped its doctrinal moorings. It wasn't always like this--after all, the Church of England gave us the Authorized or "King James" Version of the Bible. But beginning in the twentieth century, the Church of England--and the larger Anglican Communion--has been more concerned with retaining membership than with promulgating sound doctrine. Paul, of course, predicted this.::Submitted for your itching ears [2 Timothy 4:3-4] files.

How cheap is Jewish blood?
Jerry Golden asks this important question. His real point: those who say that "only" so many terrorist attacks have occurred since the "Palestinians" (again: whoever they are) signed "an agreement" have a funny notion of "only."

An Iraqi Intellectual in London: Arab Nationalists' Interference in Iraqi Affairs Will Pound the Final Nail Into Iraq's Coffin

The Anti-American and Antisemitic Writings of Saudi Prince Amr Muhammad Al-Faysal
From MEMRI. Truly this report indicates that the House of Saud are not friends either of America or of Israel or of the God that we know and serve. Taken by themselves, they are the rants of a madman--but given that this madman is a ranking agent of the government of a supposed ally of America, the American President must ask himself: with such "allies" as these, what need have we of adversaries?::Submitted for your war and rumor of war [Matthew 24:6] files.

Syria's Foreign Minister Thinks the Americans are Stupid!
From MEMRI. It's difficult to tell whether Syria's foreign minister thinks that Bush thinks he's God, or merely that God (Allah) will strike him down. Somehow he seems to imply both in one sentence.

Arab and Muslim Jihad Fighters in Iraq.
A Special Report from MEMRI. This goes to show that Islam is all about taking over the world, and right now it is about fighting against America and all things American.

Whom do they think they are fooling?
So asks a very angry Jerry Golden in today's Report on his site. The "they" are Muhammad Abbas, aka Abu Mazen, and Yasser Arafat. What makes Jerry angry is that President George W. Bush will not heed the obvious signs that Arafat and Abbas/Mazen are diddling the world while still plotting the eventual destruction of Israel and of all things Jewish. At the same time, Israel does everything that George W. Bush says.

Terrorism has never been a factor in New York City politics before, nor in any other city in the country--unless you count the murders of Mayor George Moscone and Supervisor Harvey Milk of San Francisco as an assassination. But today they have. This happened because Councilman Davis shepherded a man into the council chambers under the "councilman's guest privilege" that allowed the assassin to bypass inspection.

Extended Movie Review: The Passion, produced and directed by Mel Gibson.
By Holly McClure at Crosswalk. Everything you've heard about this movie is absolutely true: it is filmed in Aramaic and Latin with no subtitles. You'll just have to get the point, I suppose, when High Priest Caiaphas jumps to his feet, tears his robe, and starts yelling and screaming and pointing. You know that he is saying, "You see!

The MEMRI Baghdad Dispatch Series.
The Middle East Media Research Institute has begun to publish a series of dispatches from its brand-new Baghdad bureau. These are samplers of the new post-Saddam press in Iraq.

Dispatch One shows that the Iraqi media are complaining about the American occupation, both in principle ("How can they celebrate Independence Day while still occupying other nations?") and in practice (the equivalent of "Where's the beef?"). The editorials also discuss the motives of the Shi'a population (they really did hate the regime even worse than the USA did) and Saddam himself (they don't appreciate him and want him and the American "occupiers" gone).

Dispatch Two expresses dissatisfaction with the new Iraq Governing Council. One editorial comes from the organ of the Iraqi Communist Party. The editorials also complain bitterly about the occupation, about "Jewish conspirators"--and also about the old regime. Apparently a lawyer initiated a lawsuit against Uday Hussein--he must not have heard that coalition forces killed him and his brother while trying to capture him (see my post below).::Submitted for your war and rumor of war [Matthew 24:6] files.

Osama bin Laden Makes Another Speech!
From the Middle East Media Research Institute comes the latest speech by Osama bin Laden. The greatest flaw in George W. Bush's foreign policy has been the reliance on the leaders of another religion to water down their faith in order to "get along" with the "civilized world." Bush forgets one deadly danger, and Tony Blair forgets it, too: The fanatical streak in Islam is not a "mutant strain"; it is the original wild type. In Osama bin Laden you see the true face of Islam, in obedience to all its fundamentals. To Osama bin Laden, the Crusades never ended. Clearly he wants to be the new Caliph of Islam uber alles (or however you say that in Arabic). And also: Jihad means one thing, and one thing only: the overthrow of non-Islamic regimes wherever they stand. Notice also that if you take away the incitements to war, you could have an ordinary fundamentalist preacher saying that wishy-washy in-name-onlies are corrupting the kids. And I for one do not care to rely on another religion getting "less fundamentalistic" in order that we may "get along" with them.

Note: I don't believe for one picosecond that American forces, under their present leadership, would "wipe Qatar off the map" or any of the other silly quotes that Osama (if it is truly he) provided. I especially don't believe that as regards Saudi Arabia--witness the continued abuses involving American-born children kidnapped to Saudi Arabia and held against their will under Saudi law. But a "Beastly" America certainly would do all the things that Osama wants people to fear today.

Is Osama bin Laden the Beast? No--because he does not come out of the sea of peoples. But I predict that he is the first in a line of inciters of a war that will give the Beast an excuse to rule.::Submitted for your wars and rumors of wars [Matthew 24:6] and your ride a red horse [Revelation 6:4] files.

Saddam's Secret Plan for Action in the Event of his Downfall
From the Middle East Media Research Institute comes this very interesting "top secret document," found in the archives of Iraqi Intelligence and appearing in, of all places, the Saudi-sponsored London Arabic-language daily Al-Hayat. Saddam was a much more canny planner than any of us thought. He must have known that he never could have successfully opposed a mass army. So he planned all along to have stay-behind agents destroying power and water stations, looting the government agencies--in short, doing everything that we now see people doing in Iraq right now. :: Submitted for your wars and rumors of wars [Matthew 24:6] and your ride a red horse [Revelation 6:4] files.
