Filed under: Uncategorized — Tags: , , , , , , , — entry @ 16:25PM

A 17-year-old Swedish girl who went missing in Syria under mysterious circumstances has returned home after six weeks, the Swedish foreign ministry said on Saturday.”She returned home the day before yesterday,” spokeswoman Ã…sa Arvidsson told AFP.

The ministry would not comment on the circumstances of the girl’s disappearance.

According to the Swedish media, the girl was kidnapped during the early hours of March 9 while she was on holiday with her brother.

Her family, who live in Sweden, were said to have received an anonymous call saying she was being held by four men and one woman in Syria, tabloid Expressen reported.

The Svenska Dagbladet daily said on Saturday that the girl contacted the Swedish embassy in Damascus herself and was given help to return home.

Swedish police are investigating her disappearance.

Pro-Life TV: That’s a Baby! With Chuck Colson

Infanticide in Europe With Albert Mohler
A spate of murdered babies has shocked Germany in recent weeks. The Times of London reports that at least 23 babies have been killed this year alone, “many of them beaten to death or strangled by their mothers before being dumped on wasteland and in dustbins.”



Hugh Hewitt – 2007-04-11


Hugh Hewitt’s Blog


Mike Allen, Chris Cillizza, Glenn Reynolds, Mickey Kaus. With Hugh Hewitt

Dennis Prager  

Dennis Prager – 2007-04-11




Imus Being Imus With Dennis Prager

Prager H1: Dennis talks to John Leo of the Manhattan Institute. In a Wall Street Journal piece today Leo says, in effect, that Imus has always been a low life, that everyone knows it, including the politicians and celebrity journalists, like NY Times Frank Rich, who regularly go on his show… There was another excellent opinion piece on this subject today, this one by Jason Whitlock in which he writes that Imus is just a convenient diversion from the real issue – the degradation of black culture.


Who Murdered Boris Litvinenko? With Dennis Prager

Prager H2: Dennis talks to Yuri Felshtinsky, historian of post-Soviet Russia and author. His new book, based on the information provided by poisoned ex-KGB agent, Boris Litvinenko is Blowing Up Russia: The Secret Plot to Bring Back KGB Terror… The Duke Rape charges are finally being dropped. Is the accuser going to be punished for her lies?


Follow the Money With Dennis Prager

Prager H3: If you do, you will come to the conclusion that it’s in supporting global warming research – the kind that says it’s all man-made. The Doris Duke Foundation is giving a cool $100 to what Leo Di Caprio calls “the cause”… In Michigan the Democratic dominated legislature wants to give any student an IPod. Vote Democrat and you get gifts…. Hero of the week: the Slovenian who swam the Amazon. He survived toothpick fish. (You don’t want to know)… New Al Qaeda terror attack in Algeria… PBS and BBC cancel shows dealing with the Islam and the War in Iraq. They don’t want “to offend” anyone… A lottery winners curses his good luck.



Mike Gallagher – 2007-04-11


Rep. Charles Rangel With Mike Gallagher
The long-time New York congressman talks to Mike about Imus, Democrats and his new book.

“New Crusaders” take hostages at New Jersey School

Gunmen allegedly stormed the school and took students hostage

It has been said they are seeking justice because the daughter of one member of the organization had been expelled for PRAYING BEFORE CLASS.

The Crap that is going on in America and Europe has to end.I received this email today from the ACLJ, This is a great organization, read all about the latest outrage.If you are unaware of the American Center for Law and Justice, you should get yourself familiar with them.Someone has to stand up and fight for FREEDOM.

Read what is going on back in America!!!


A situation has come to my attention that has left me outraged.

A mock hostage-taking with staged – albeit terrifying – gunmen descending on a New Jersey high school as part of a drill occurred late last month. Who were the portrayed terrorists?


No other group in America would tolerate this kind of religious profiling! And we will not stand for it either. Please support our efforts to hold school officials accountable for their oppressive actions. Give your online gift of support right now.

Don’t get me wrong, taking precautions over school violence is imperative. However, the Burlington Township school district went over the top … and TOOK HOLY WEEK HOSTILITY TO A WHOLE NEW LEVEL.

The school district decided that the group engaged in the hostage-taking activity was “right-wing fundamentalists” … a group the school named the “New Crusaders” … who do not believe in separation of church and state. This is unbelievable!

In fact, the mock gunmen allegedly stormed the school and took students hostage, “seeking justice because the daughter of one member of the organization had been expelled for PRAYING BEFORE CLASS.”

Your immediate online gift will support the ACLJ in our efforts to put an end to this type of anti-religious rhetoric in New Jersey … and all across the nation. Please give as generously as you can as we work toward righting this horrific wrong.

It is imperative that we act quickly in this issue. We will not stand for this type of anti-religious indoctrination in our public schools!

Let’s call this what it is: blatant religious hostility toward people of faith.

The school district’s mock hostage-taking program TARGETED CHRISTIANS as the perpetrators. THIS IS OUTRAGEOUS.

My staff is hard at work on a legal demand letter that will be sent to school officials within the next few days. We are fully prepared to fight this issue head-on … we are looking at all the options, including litigation.


We are also developing a Washington, D.C., case involving suppression of free speech activities in public areas. Rev. Pat Mahoney conducts an Easter event throughout the city on public sidewalk areas – areas that are open for free speech.

Yet police officials told him he cannot conduct this activity any longer, citing “Church State Separation.” Our office is reviewing all the data now and preparing a demand letter to send to Washington officials, and we will take federal court action if necessary.

Please stand with the ACLJ now in this imperative matter. Do not allow religious hostility aimed at men and women of faith to fester and grow UNCHECKED in America. We cannot tolerate this type of anti-religious activity … nor should we.

Thank you for your support.

Reuters – Most Arabs are not Holocaust Deniers

In a surprising revelation by Reuters reporter Dan Williams, it was revealed in a new survey that almost three quarters of Israeli Arabs believe the Holocaust took place. Who would have thought that the large majority of Arabs living in Israel actually believe that the holocaust during WWII took place. Polarizing media reports spit out by anti-western Newspapers & TV stations all over Europe and America have allowed facts to have gone without notice for the purpose of generating headlines and hate.

While Reuters stated that recently, Avigdor Lieberman, A far-right Israeli cabinet minister, has proposed that Israeli Arab communities go over to Palestinian control under an ethnic partition of Israel and the West Bank, an idea rejected by centrist Prime Minister Ehud Olmert. Dan Williams reported that Sammy Smooha, a social sciences professor who conducted the poll, says that 67.5 percent of the Israeli Arabs would want to remain in Israel even if there were a Palestinian state in the West Bank and Gaza Strip. Sixty-two percent voiced concern their towns could be ceded to Palestinian jurisdiction.

Dan Williams article concludes,”The findings clearly show that the Arabs in Israel are closely connected to life in Israel, see their future as being part of the state and under no circumstances want to become part of the Palestinian state,”
