Christians United Against Religious Persecution

About twelve thousand persons, representing different Christian churches and religious communities, united in a demonstration against the massacre of Copts in Maspiro on past October 9 2011 where 27 Coptic Christians were killed and over 300 were injured after the Egyptian military shot them and drove with APCs over them, and against the oppression of the Copts in the Arab Republic of Egypt.
The demonstration was held in the center of Vienna on Friday October 21 2011afternoon. The demo was led by the Cardinal of the Austrian Catholic Church Dr. Christoph Schönborn and the Coptic Bishop in Austria, Anba Gabriel, and many representatives of other Christian religious groups came from Vienna as well as from different Austrian cities and towns. The march began from before the Opera, followed the Ring Street through Ballhausplatz before of the Hofburg, the residency of Austrian President Dr. Heinz Fischer and Chancellor Mr. Faymann, and stopped in front of St. Stephen’s Cathedral, where a final prayer of mourning took place outside and inside the Cathedral. (Click once on the small picture to make it bigger).
The demonstrators carried a model of a coffin covered with black, and raised wooden crosses flowers and a several signs representing their demands. They chanted for the freedom of worship and demanded that the Egyptian authorities stop the violence, persecution, and massacres against the Coptic minority in Egypt. They chanted asking if the life of Christians is worth nothing, claimed that the Copts in Egypt were guilty ONLY because they are Christians, and that because of this, extremist Muslims were causing them troubles without end. They raised signs which demand an end to the kidnapping of Coptic girls who are forcibly converted to Islam and married with Muslims.
A prayer was held at St. Stephen’s square and another one inside St. Stephen’s Cathedral, in which Cardinal Schönborn invited Bishop Anba and all religious group representatives to join in the prayers for the Christian victims who were killed by unjust violence in Egypt. After the first prayed ended, Cardinal Schönborn and Bishop Anba prayed inside Stephen’s Cathedral and lightened candles for in the memory of and blessing the Christian martyrs.
The Coptic Bishop in Austria, Anba Gabriel, stated during a press conference held on last October 17 2011 at the Church of the Virgin Mary, that over 100.000 Copts are known to have emigrated from Egypt because of the religious oppression.
It should be noted here that on October 11 2011 the Egyptian authorities executed Muhammad Ahmad Hussein, also known as Al-Kmoni, at the Arab tower jail West of Alexandria. Al-Kmoni was accused of carrying out the terrorist murders of Nag Hammadi against Coptic Christians on past January 6 2010 during the celebration of Christmas.
Regarding the massacre of last 11 October, the Egyptian military claims that they reacted to people among the Coptic demonstrators who captured, disarmed and burnt several military personnel in a car. (Please Click here to see the film), the Copts deny responsibility for this and claimed that the Egyptian military shot them and drove with APCs over them. (Please Click here to see the film). It is possible that this is the work of provocateurs infiltrated into the demo working for parties interested in maintaining sectarian tensions.
I sent several questions to the Egyptian Embassy in Vienna asking them for a statement regarding the problems around the Coptic community and the demo of today, but they have chosen to remain silent on the demo of today and the serious accusations against the Egyptian Authorities.

Ms. Salam, Libya was just castrated and made into a carcass for World Zionism and the New World Order. Next is the Western Sahara and the Sahel. That is: Tunisia, Algeria, Morocco and Western Sahara. Below (south of) those are the buffer states (Mauritania, Mali, Niger, Chad, Sudan and Eritrea) between traditional long time Arab cultured, Islamic civilization and traditional Bantu speaker culture African nations. These buffer nations will be targeted along with the rest of Africa and the NWO plan is to sweep all of Africa and its people into complete slavery. Especially watch the southern Sahel. The Pan-African movement had always looked to Gaddafi as a potential leader of all of Africa, in the role of spokesman. That of course has been destroyed. Gaddafi's mistakes included trusting the word of Washington and trusting Rome, Italy. A note on Kardinal Schoenborn. He is Tubingen agente 'Benediktos' Ratzinger's prime shadow in covering over all of the Vatican's misdeeds. Schoenborn plays the good guy, but he is totally in Benediktos' pocket. They will be of no real help to anyone. The Bavarian Guelph (and their central banks) have totally taken over the Vatican. They are core to the New World Order - the NWO is the Nazis and the Zionists and their puppet masters the Bavarian Guelph Illuminati. They hate all of Arab culture and Islam as standing in their way of the NWO ruling the world. Take care always good lady, it is about to get much worse for people everywhere.

Israel Insults Egypt After The Release of Shalit

Israeli Channels 2 and 10, TV channels known as extreme right wing and close to the military, managed by former IDF officers and war criminals, thanked the Egyptian authorities for their role in helping to release Israeli soldier Shalit in the usual way, which shows the real face and the true character and moral of the jewish “state” Israel.
These official TV stations launched a brutal attack on Egyptians and the Egyptian television broadcast after interviewer Shahira Amin from the Egyptian TV aired an interview with Israeli soldier Gilad Shalit where she asked him among other things: “There are more than 5.000 Palestinians in Israeli jails. Will you help to start a campaign for their release?” Shalit spoke about the good treatment he received from his captors, elements of the Islamic Resistance Hamas Movement, saying also that he hoped that all Palestinian prisoners will be released and able to return to their families.
Yaakov Ayalon (יעקב אילון) from Channel Ten and his correspondent described the interview as a “very bizarre” and “barbaric” one. Israeli Channel Two said that the interview was “not comfortable” or civilized. The Israeli TV stations asked Israelis to comment on the release of Shalit, they broadcast how individuals wished death to the Egyptian interviewer Amin. Another one of them said “I wish that I could spit her on face”. Yet others cursed her with obscene and immoral insults describing her as “more than brazen” and characterizing her with words which can not be repeated. Newspapers and people commenting on their online releases also allowed themselves to go far beyond what can be described as polite.
See the Egyptian television interview with the Israeli soldier Gilad Shalit

Ynetnews wrote: “Amin’s crude interview with Shalit Tuesday morning featured heavy pro-Egyptian and pro-Palestinian propaganda”. “It appeared that Amin was virtually abusing Shalit, moments after he was brought to Egypt from Gaza.
In another report Ynet wrote: The Egyptian anchorwoman, Shaira Amin, later took pride in her great “scoop” in an interview with Israeli TV, highlighting how clueless she is in respect to enlightened journalistic standards. With her shameful performance she joined a long list of fellow Arabs who had proved time and again in the past that speaking fluent English and wearing modern clothes does not make one intelligent, civilized or humane.
Notably, while all this was going on, Israel went about its side of the deal with the customary dignity, avoiding any disparagement of the freed Palestinian prisoners.
The above statements should be qualified with two notes: Firstly, not all Arabs are like this. It is not the Arab “race” that is flawed, but rather, Arab culture and society which are mired in a cesspool of primitivism and barbarity. One can only pity the honorable, intelligent citizens of these societies for being surrounded by such spectacular mediocrity.
Secondly, despite our neighbors’ unsavory character, these are our “partners for coexistence” in our home region, the Middle East. As such, we must do everything in our power to maintain our peace treaty with Egypt, a priceless asset for Israel, and attempt to secure some kind of understandings (rather than “peace”) with our Palestinian foes.
As a Palestinian I can only thank the Egyptian authorities for their good offices in this issue and the good will of the Egyptian people towards Palestinians.

Ms. Salam, Colonel Gaddafi is dead, we are told. Murdered by his own people. Mossad did Lockerbie and many other false flags. Oded Yinon's plan is coming to pass. I will tell you what another phase of this will be in the future. It is this: when the Arab people are conditioned by their own "leaders" into being quislings and traitors to their own, to where they are primed into relying on the Amero-Euro banking interests and accept Western Militarist presence as inevitable, then will a peace plan brokered through the Vatican be presented, simultaneously in the Amero-Euro halls of Government and the United Nations both. It will claim that Jewish identity (under whatever guise they call it) is the key to "peace in the Middle East." It will be instead the initiation of Noachide One World Government based simultaneously in Jerusalem and Rome, with the Vatican acting as false 'prophet' for the actors behind the scenes. At the appropriate time they will bring forth their candidate for supreme ruler dictator of all mankind. This individual will contain all the evil of Hertzl, Lenin, Trotsky, Stalin, Hitler, Mao and Bush I, II and III (Prescott, George and George).

The Death of Muammar Gaddafi

Al Jazeera staff and correspondents update you on important developments in the Libya uprising.

Conflicting news were reported from Libya about the fate of Gaddafi’s son, Saifal Islam al-Gaddafi, the purported heir apparent for his father, following Gaddafi’s death on Thursday.
Uncertain reports have said Saifal Islam was injured after his attempt to flee Sirte heading for Zlaitin. Meanwhile, deputy head for the NTC higher security committee in Tripoli has said Gaddafi was shot dead by gunfire on Thursday and that he would be buried in an honourable manner, as based on Islamic Sharia law.
But AJA correspondent said when asked about the presence of Saifal Islam in Zlaitin, the local authorities there have denied possessing any information about Saifal Islam, saying the reports  were baseless and those who had released  the rumours would questioned.
Other news reports have also said a convoy of about 10 vehicles which was tracked south of Sirte town, was believed to be carrying  Saifal Islam and Sanousi, Gaddafi’s intelligence chief, while heading for Niger. 
For its part, the Hague-based International Criminal Court (ICC) which had earlier issued an arrest warrant for Gaddafi, has asked NTC authorities to postpone the burial of Gaddafi’s corpse, till the ICC undertakes necessary tests on the body, AJA correspondent says.   
Meanwhile, the dead body have been set to be seen by NTC head who will be heading for Misrata on Friday, along with other Libyans before the burial, AJA correspondent says.  
The UN High Commission for Human Rights has called for investigating the circumstances of Gaddafi’s death, while NATO said they were unaware about the presence of colonel Gaddafi in the convoy of vehicles bombarded by NATO on Thursday near Sirte .
Press sources have meanwhile quoted Niger authorities as saying Abdullah al-Sanousi, Gaddafi’s intelligence chief, had fled Sirte battle zone heading for northern Niger.

Libya Live Blog | Al Jazeera Blogs: 

Libyan hospitals near the frontline are struggling to treat an ever-increasing number of patients.
Ibn Sina hospital in Sirte - a town that is now almost entirely in the hands of anti-Gaddafi fighters - has even become part of the battleground as fighting continues between the two sides.
Wounded patients line the corridors and halls; on one side injured anti Gadaffi fighters, and on the other, supporters of the former Libyan leader. Fighters who faced each other in combat just hours before, are now being treated in the same barely-functioning medical facility.
Al Jazeera's Tony Birtley reports from Sirte.

Yemen Live Blog: The United States showed a lack of respect for democracy

The United States showed a lack of respect for democracy and its partners in fighting terrorism by renewing its call for Yemeni President Ali Abdullah Saleh to step down, a Yemeni official said on Saturday.

Washington made its call for Saleh to resign on the day it announced that a CIA drone strike had killed Anwar al-Awlaki, a US-born cleric regarded as one of al Qaeda's most eloquent English propagandists, in Yemen's northern al-Jawf province.

On Friday, the White House said Awlaki's killing had not altered its demand that Saleh sign a plan under which he would hand over power. Reuters

After this big victory in catching Awlaki, the White House calls on the president to leave power immediately? The Americans don't even respect those who cooperate with them. Yemen's deputy information minister Abdu al-Janadi.
