Praying for Gilad Shalit, an Israeli kidnapped by Hamas terrorists within Israeli territory. August 28th was his 25th birthday, he’s spent 6 birthdays in captivity. Gilad has been held in the Gaza Strip by Hamas, which refuses to uphold either the minimal demands of the international treaties or humanitarian conditions. It has refused to allow him even one visit by the International Committee of the Red Cross. It is holding him in harsh conditions, I can’t imagine how his family is suffering. I think that the entire nation and all fair and just people in the world are incensed at what Hamas is doing. This is just one of many examples of how Hamas ”instigates" the violence that occurs in Gaza that has resulted in the death of so many people.
Why is it that our government always says they are “making federal funding available to victims of disasters” yet it never seems to get to the victims? Wasn’t it our government who said “never fail to take advantage of a crisis.” Unless they are making direct deposits to the victims, I think they should just hold on to our tax money…thank you very much.
U.S. and Pakistani officials said Saturday that al-Qaida’s second-in-command, Atiyah Abd al-Rahman, has been killed in Pakistan, delivering another big blow to a terrorist group that the U.S. believes to be on the verge of defeat.
First of all, I I have nothing against Lupe Fiasco personally nor am I a “hater” or judgmental. I made a rational criticism of his political perspective based on his background, statements & actions.
I respect him for bringing political discourse and real life issues to the table in the form of hip hop. I believe artistic expression is always a direct reflection of the population from which it’s born. However, his brain is simply dysfunctional as a result of being subject to Islamic ideology plus indoctrinated with liberal propaganda. This is actually very common among apostate-Muslims (moderates), they say things with complete certainty which defy all logic and reason! Its always the same. They attempt to ascribe Islam characteristics which suit their personalities (peaceful in most cases) and then claim them for Allah and the Prophet.
This is nothing but a reality bending psychological bandaid born of a self-induced disconnection from reality and manufactured for the purpose of continuing to “believe.” All of the mythical and peaceful “truths” professed by apostate-Muslims are inconsistent with the history of Islam, the words written of the Prophet or the life lived by him.
Wasalu Muhammad Jaco (aka Lupe Fiasco), is NOT even observant yet he claims to be Muslim. He comes from a radical past, his father was a Muslim Black Panther and when asked how the “Black Panther, Fight the Power” movement influenced his life he replied with, “I bring that mentality to all parts of my life.” I practice what I preach, and I preach what I practice. My music is no less an extension of my life, with the things was taught and the way I was raised.”
Just proves my point I was trying to make. It explains why his political views are so ridiculous.
He recently stated his views on terrorism in an interview.
"My fight against terrorism, to me, the biggest terrorist is Obama in the United States of America. I’m trying to fight the terrorism that’s actually causing the other forms of terrorism. You know, the root cause of terrorism is the stuff the U.S. government allows to happen. The foreign policies that we have in place in different countries that inspire people to become terrorists.”
He claims that terrorists have a motivation to become terrorists, he looks for where that motivation lies and says that he finds it in American government, greed for oil, and its propensity to engage in foreign intervention.
His reasoning is based upon saying something ridiculous, idiosyncratic and eccentric, followed by thought provoking philosophy and logic. The only problem is that his statements and lyrics are not realistic. Lyrics are hardly ever realistic.
Lupe, we love your songs and your lyrics, but please, do us all a favor and focus on your artistry. If you want to make a political statement, please make it credible. How is American foreign policy motivating terrorism? Do you seriously think this isn’t a question American officials analyze and try to solve as a primary concern of their jobs as politicians every day of their lives? Are you seriously that stupid?
He doesn’t even attempt to go into details about the foreign policy he references. For all the vague references in his songs, without details, no one knows exactly what he’s talking about. He doesn’t even vote.
Stop living in America and making millions if you can’t engage in your government’s activities. Either do something about it, attempt to do something about it, or leave. Don’t just state a paradox which becomes more ridiculous and childish the more you say it.
30 years ago, there was no such thing as a Palestinian people. If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it people will eventually come to believe it.
The under-lying principle that fuels the conflict between Israel and Palestine is that opponents of Israel say they no longer have a valid claim to the land.
I’ve said it before and I will say it again. There is a preliminary historical fact that must be established; there has never been a Palestinian state governed by Arab Palestinians in history, nor was there ever a serious Arab-Palestinian national movement until 1964! The region known as Palestine was ruled alternately by Rome, by Islamic and Christian crusaders, by the Ottoman Empire and, briefly, by the British after World War I. The British agreed to restore at least part of the land to the Jewish people as their ancestral homeland. It was never ruled by Arabs as a separate nation.
Even self-proclaimed “Palestinians” have admitted it…
"The Palestinian people does not exist. The creation of a Palestinian state is only a means for continuing our struggle against the state of Israel for our Arab unity. In reality today there is no difference between Jordanians, Palestinians, Syrians and Lebanese. Only for political and tactical reasons do we speak today about the existence of a Palestinian people, since Arab national interests demand that we posit the existence of a distinct "Palestinian people" to oppose Zionism." -Zahir Muhsein (Palestine Liberation Organization leader)
And it thats’s not the only such statement of its kind. Yasser Arafat himself made a very definitive and unequivocal statement along these lines as well. It demonstrates conclusively that the Palestinian nationhood argument is the real strategic deception – one geared to set up the destruction of Israel.
"Since we cannot defeat Israel in war, we do this in stages. We take any and every territory that we can of Palestine, and establish a sovereignty there, and we use it as a springboard to take more. When the time comes, we can get the Arab nations to join us for the final blow against Israel." -Yasser Arafat (Palestinian leader)
No matter how many people convince themselves that the aspirations for Palestinian statehood are genuine and the key to peace in the Middle East, they are still deceiving themselves. No nation, other than the ancient nation of Israel and later again in 1948, with the rebirth of the 2nd Nation of Israel, has ever ruled as a sovereign national entity on this land. A mighty Jewish empire extended over this entire area many centuries before the Arabs, and their newly invented religion of Islam appeared on the scene in the 7th Century A.D. How can people challenge the fact that the Jewish People have had a presence there for well over 3,000 years?
Legitimate debate is one thing. But reflexive bias against Israel means even basic security efforts to defend innocent civilians are criticized as violations of human rights.
You can disagree with me, but arguing against historical facts usually isn’t very successful. Truth does not change. Truth is truth. If something was true 50 years ago, 40 years ago, 30 years ago, it is still true today.
This is Irene. She is coming to get me. I may not be able to be on tumblr the next few days. PLEASE DO NOT UNFOLLOW ME. If i have power and internet, I shall keep you updated, but it looks bad. She looks like she is going to be a bitch and take the best of us down. I just want to wish all my friends on the East Coast safety through this terrible storm. I am currently preparing for the worst and hoping for the very best. I love you all. <3

The Obama regime is taking credit for the upcoming fall of Libyan dictator Moammar Gadhafi. So does that mean Obama is taking credit for starting a war, circumventing congressional power and using taxpayer dollars to fund his illegal use of the U.S. military? Oh aight…
Evolutionists continue to attempt to explain the presence of soft tissue in a T Rex that’s supposedly 70 million years old. The T. rex was deposited in sandstone of “estuarine” origin, meaning that the animal was buried in rock layers laid down by water (no surprise to creationists). The tissue/blood vessels are not millions of years old at all, but were mostly fossilized under catastrophic conditions a few thousand years ago at most. The half-life of carbon-14 is just 5,730 years, radiocarbon dating of materials containing carbon yields dates of only thousands of years, not the dates over millions of years. This would hardly serve as evidence for their millions of years of evolution. Creationists now possess immensely powerful evidence against the popular belief that dinosaurs lived millions of years ago and instead have tremendous support for the Biblical timeline of a recent creation.
