Global Banks Embrace Islam: "With Great Britain now pledging to become the Islamic banking center of the world, the stampede by all global banks to enter the world of Islamic banking is well underway.... To insure Shari’a compliance, banks must hire Shari’a scholars to review and approve each product and practice as 'halal', the Muslim equivalent of kosher in Judaism. Because there is a shortage of such scholars, there is competition between banks to find the best expert to sit on their boards of directors. ... [M]ost of these scholars are from the school of radical Wahhabi/Salafi Shari’a in Saudi Arabia and elsewhere, holding views diametrically opposed to the basic values of Western civilization.
"Shari’a finance ... cannot charge interest (usury)."See Glossary of Islamic Words and the next link:
Desperados: "One of the most popular rock bands of all time has finally managed to offend -- not for its songs, but for how it sells them. There's a lesson here in technology, new business models, and hidebound 'progressives.'... These and others are evidence that Napster and its file-sharing successors weren't the death of the music business but a smart bomb that forced the creation of new delivery models.... Gene Simmons says he can't be bothered to go into the studio anymore because the business model that made him rich no longer works."
Intel official: Expect less privacy: "As Congress debates new rules for government eavesdropping, a top intelligence official says it is time that people in the United States changed their definition of privacy. Privacy no longer can mean anonymity, says Donald Kerr, the principal deputy director of national intelligence.... Millions of people in this country — particularly young people — already have surrendered anonymity to social networking sites such as MySpace and Facebook, and to Internet commerce. These sites reveal to the public, government and corporations what was once closely guarded information, like personal statistics and credit card numbers. 'Those two generations younger than we are have a very different idea of what is essential privacy.'" See A National Information System
Managing Change.God banished from Washington Monument -- Historic cap engraving 'Laus Deo' out of sight: "The National Park Service has banished God from a key display of America's Christian heritage in Washington.... The reference is an engraving of 'LAUS DEO,' which is Latin for 'Praise be to God,' and is on the east side of the 100-ounce aluminum cap of the Washington Monument."

U.S. didn't implement anti-terror recommendation: "Nearly 10,000 foreigners from states sponsoring terrorism have obtained permanent residency in the United States in the past seven years, congressional investigators say.... Congress created the program in 1990 to provide up to 55,000 immigrant visas annually to foreigners with low rates of immigration to the United States. ...more than 2,700 people from Cuba have come into the United States through the program, as have 3,100 Iranians, 3,700 Sudanese and 160 Syrians. Fraudulent visa activity in other countries in the program also is a problem." The emerging New World Order
Is this America? Part 3: "There is a stone monument in northeastern Georgia that is over 19 feet high.... These are the Georgia Guidestones. Chiseled into them, in several languages, are ten new 'commandments' for mankind. The first of these 'commandments' is: 'Maintain humanity under 500,000,000 in perpetual balance with nature.' The world's population is about 6.6 billion people. In order to get it down to 500,000,000 (half a billion), it would be necessary to kill off over six billion people.... Alexander King (co-founder of the Club of Rome...) is upset because DDT almost eliminated malaria in Guyana. He said that malaria is a 'natural population control' and eradicating it is harmful because it causes an increase in population. He asked, 'Why should humans get priority over other forms of life?' "See Saving the Earth
Environment& Religion. Pope to make climate action a moral obligation: "The Pope is expected to use his first address to the United Nations to deliver a powerful warning over climate change in a move to adopt protection of the environment as a 'moral' cause.... On 2 September he told a 300,000 youth audience: '...it is necessary to make courageous decisions that reflect knowing how to re-create a strong alliance between man and the earth.'... Benedict is the spiritual head of 19 per cent of the world's population...." See Al Gore’s Vision of Global Salvation
Why won't the Kyoto Protocol die?"More than 18,000 scientists have said there is no human-induced global warming, the United States has withdrawn from the Protocol, and Japan has announced that it will not enforce emissions reductions required to meet its targets. Why, then, do Kyoto advocates insist that the Protocol be ratified and enter into force this year?...
"The global warming industry created by the Kyoto Protocol would administer the program world wide. This scheme would generate massive cash flows, from which bureaucrats (the U.N. and national governments) could extract taxes, commissions, and administration fees. Increased electricity costs would be passed on to the consumer and would not affect corporate profits. Money, or the promise of it, drives the Kyoto Protocol and the global warming industry it has spawned. No one believes that the Kyoto targets can be met, nor that even if they were met, that it would have any significant effect on the climate. It is the money, pure and simple." See Green Lies
Competiton in America? "Rockefeller, J.P. Morgan, Andrew Carnegie and others are depicted in a 1911... cartoon by Robert Minor as welcoming Karl Marx and his 'Socialism' to Wall Street. This is because under Socialism, CEOs of major corporations and banks can limit competition via their control of politicians who pass laws and enact rules and regulations favorable to the CEOs.... Fewer and fewer corporations are controlling more and more industries. There once were many newspapers and other news sources in America competing with each other, but now just a handful of media corporations control what the public is told." See The emerging New World Order
Report: Immigration Could Add 100 Million to US by 2060: "The central question these projections raise and the American people must answer is what costs and benefits come from having a much larger population and a more densely settled country.... Every time an American complains about traffic congestion, infrastructure overload, private schools, loss of natural habitat, the possibility to get out of town and have some spiritual recreation in nature, that is a result of federal policy' on immigration..." See The UN Plan for Global Migration
Supposed Reform Bill Exposes Churches to Seizure: "One of the most alarming developments in recent years to threaten our churches is the increasing use of eminent domain statutes to seize private property, including churches, for the supposed "greater public good". /....In Long Beach, eminent domain is being abused by taking a Filipino Baptist Fellowship Church to build a condominium building. Cottonwood Christian Church in Cypress was forced by eminent domain to sell land it had intended to use for a new church building-in order to build a large retail store. ...the most visible reform bill right now was actually written by the very folks who benefit the most from eminent domain as it stands now (The California Redevelopment Association, for one!)."See Reinventing the World
Voting machines breached in 'top-to-bottom' review: "Teams of computer hackers sanctioned by California Secretary of State Debra Bowen were able to hack without difficulty into various vendors' touch-screen voting machines.... The report concluded the machines could be manipulated using 'tools that can found in a typical office.'"
Dark clouds on the European horizon: "Europe is on the verge of imploding: Radical Muslims are moving there in droves. Europeans have all but given up on their Christian roots. Moral absolutes are no longer relevant. ... The European economy is sluggish, but welfare entitlements continue to expand. Indigenous birthrates are plummeting, and immigration is supplying the continent's work force....
"'Permanence is the illusion of every age,' [said Mark Steyn]. 'Europeans find the idea that... their European Union cannot endure inconceivable....'
"'Islam is a political project and a supremacist movement," said Ayaan Hirsi Ali, an ex-Muslim, a former member of the Dutch parliament.... 'In order to expand, you need an enemy.'"See My High Tower & The Hand of God in History
U.S. International trade in goods and services only: "The U.S. Census Bureau and the U.S. Bureau of Economic Analysis, through the Department of Commerce, announced today that total April exports of $129.5 billion and imports of $188.0 billion resulted in a goods and services deficit of $58.5 billion."
Gore Can 'Buy' 2008 Election: Al Gore "owns a ton of Google and he's made enough money that he could wait until a month before and just drop $50 million in to launch a  race," a well-placed Democrat told Deborah Orin of the New York Post. "He's got way more than enough money to buy this thing at any point in the process." See Al Gore’s Vision of Global Salvation

A New Foundation for Positive Cultural Change -- Science and God in the Public Square: "Tufts philosopher Daniel Dennett, in Darwin's Dangerous Idea, says Darwinian evolution is 'a universal acid' that dissolves all traditional religious and moral beliefs. He suggests that traditional churches be relegated to 'cultural zoos' for the amusement of onlookers.
"I witnessed the same attitude at a conference last April at Baylor University: Nobel prize-winner Steven Weinberg lumped together all spiritual teachings, whether of Buddha or Jesus, as talk about 'fairies.' A few months earlier he had told the Freedom From Religion Association, 'I personally feel that the teaching of modern science is corrosive to religious belief, and I'm all for that.' If science helps bring about the end of religion, he concluded, 'it would be the most important contribution science could make.'"
Rodents in the Belfry: "John D. Rockefeller willed enough of his enormous fortune so that his son, David... could conspire to destroy the U.S. Constitution and replace it with the United Nations Charter. From the boiling caldron of miscreants, at a time John D. was at the zenith of his moneymaking schemes, a character calling himself 'Colonel' Edward M. House entered the side wing of the stage for political skullduggery. His title was self-endowed, since he never entered the military. The Colonel... actually ran foreign entanglements in the White House while Woodrow was incapacitated by poor health. His prior involvement in the field of banking allowed him close association with the Rothschild Bank of London a major influence when he represented Wilson in the 1919 League of Nations deliberations - the precursor to the United Nations.... He misrepresented both the positions of European leaders to his president and submitted false impressions of United States positions to the leaders in Europe...
"...he became the first chairman of the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) in 1921....
In 1991, in Baden-Baden, Germany, David Rockefeller gloatingly said, 'We’re grateful to the Washington Post, the New York Times, Time Magazine and the great publications whose directors have... respected their promises of discretion for almost forty years. It would have been impossible for us to develop our plan for the world if we had been subject to the bright lights of publicity during those years. But the world is now more sophisticated and prepared to march towards world government.” This is an interesting outline of last centuries quiet revolutionaries. You may want to compare it with The Revolutionary Roots of the UN and
Why the Iraq war is turning into America's defeat (Mark Steyn): "Iran is supporting Shia insurgents in Iraq and Sunni insurgents in Iraq. In other words, it's on both sides in the so-called civil war. How can this be? After all, as the other wise old foreign-policy 'realists' of the Iraq Study Group assured us only in December, Iran has 'an interest in avoiding chaos in Iraq.'
"Au contraire, the ayatollahs have concluded they have a very clear interest in fomenting chaos in Iraq. They're in favor of Sunni killing Shia, and Shia killing Sunni, and if some vacationing Basque terrorists wanted to blow up the Spanish Cultural Center in Mosul, they'd be in favor of that, too. The Iranians don't care who kills whom as long as every night when Americans turn on the evening news there's smoke over Baghdad."
They may have learned that dialectical strategy from the Morgans and Rockefellers, who -- through the last century -- would fund republicans as well as democrats, communism as well as Nazism and democracy. All is "fair" for those who seek "higher" goals and greater territory."
Javier Solano and the Global Constitution (by Constance Cumbey): "'As you all know, Javier Solana is the face and voice of Europe,' proclaimed the Germanic ambassador making preliminary remarks before Senor Solana's keynote speech.....
"This so reminded me of a speech given 25 years ago, February, 1982, in Southfield, Michigan by another larger than life New Age figure, David Spangler. In that speech, Spangler, an open Lucifer devotee told his rapt audience that the New World Order would be a combination of NGO's (non-governmental organizations), multinational corporations and UN agencies. [Did you notice the three sectors of Communitarian systems: social (NGOs), private (business), and public (government)?
"Solana's twist was equally grandiose. The shape of the New Order... would be [NGOs] ● Bringing 'new players to the table' ● Strengthening "regional cooperation" ●'Transcend the inter-state paradigm' ● IMF (International Monetary Fund) restructuring UN....
"Quoting Dr. Solana's February 14th speech: 'It is not for me to advocate precise modalities of how we integrate new players at the top table of global diplomacy. But I am certain that we must. We should bear in mind that how China and India will behave in future depends on how we treat them on the way up.... To tackle the dark side of globalisation, we must mobilise new networks of actors, from the public, private, and NGO sectors." See Warren's P.E.A.C.E. Plan and UN Goals
The Occult Roots of Networking: "Networking was conceived of as a way to expedite human evolution and it was championed by the Luciferian Theosophists. This fact is well-documented throughout their literature, particularly in the many books written about the New Age or New World Order by leaders of this cult. These networking philosophies have rapidly become mainstream by being merged into various “scientific” disciplines such as sociology, psychology, marketing, and even medicine." See Reinventing the World & The Origins of Networking
Maine school teaches kids 'transgendering': "Mike Heath, executive director of the Christian Civic League of Maine, says the workshop... included a presentation by a former student who is now undergoing male hormone treatments and says she is a boy. Heath says such events are becoming more common in the state's schools. The government of Maine invests almost a quarter-million dollars a year 'in promoting homosexuality and so-called 'sexual orientation' through the attorney general's office.'... Students who chose to opt out of the Diversity Day events at Cony High School were reportedly offered an alternative workshop on 'hate crimes' in schools."

[Warning: The following link (pdf) to a long UN report froze my Internet browser twice. I may use more of this information in an upcoming article]: UNESCO - Intercultural Dialogue: "...misunderstandings and misinterpretations arise between one religion, spiritual tradition or culture, and another.... Reciprocal knowledge and closer interaction were identified as the primary solutions. As regards the three monotheistic religions, the emerging situation is assessed to be satisfactory. [See Heresy in high places] They have already much in common....
"Several speakers examined other obstacles in the way of promoting... closer interaction among Abrahamic traditions. The most important... was to forget disconcerting events and incidents in their shared history.... Remembering and forgetting have to be done together.... This presumes that each accepts to change its own affirmations and fears of the past in order to overcome them. Other speakers suggested that asking for pardon by perpetrators of religious discrimination, persecution and such other hostilities, and forgiveness by the victims had to be a prerequisite.... Several speakers underscored the positive trends of dialogue and cooperation." See The International Agenda & TwistingTruth
Christian Chaplain Dismissed; Muslim Chaplain Promoted: "Chaplain Lt. Gordon James Klingenschmitt has been court-martialed and dismissed from the U.S. Navy. His crime? Praying in Jesus' name in uniform....
"'[T]he Pentagon recently promoted a Wahhabi-trained Muslim chaplain who catered to al-Qaida detainees at Guantanamo and fought to establish the first Mosque in Marine Corps history.... Deputy Defense Secretary Gordon England personally promoted Navy chaplain Abuhena Mohammed Saifulislam.... England also earlier this year personally dedicated a new Islamic center at Marine headquarters in Quantico, Va., on the advice of Saifulislam.'"
