From Greta’s show On the Record last week, Franklin Graham was on to discuss the recent persecution of a Christian pastor in Iran, who has been put on trial and faces the death penalty for apostasy against Islam.
I am praying for this pastor and his family. This type of religious bigotry should not be happening in this day or age.
Again, must we continue to parrot the lie that Islam is a relgion of peace?
This weekend on Fox News, UCLA Professor and Iranian Scholar, Ali Salehi, was on to discuss how Iranian protesters are desperate for Obama to speak out on their behalf. Salehi, who has former students and family in Iran, says that the protesters even have a name for Obama: “Ubama,” (sp?)and that it means “he’s with us.” They think of Obama as their president. *ahem* (can we give him to them?)
I wonder if Obama will decide not to meddle any more? Kind of strange, considering he was oh-so-ready to meddle in the Honduras elections today. Hypocrisy indeed.
Last night on RedEye, Michigan Congressman, Thaddeus McCotter was on, and unlike his usual jovial and dry-wit demeanor, he was visibly pissed about “The One’s” extremely weak position on standing behind and supporting Iranian protesters.
I love McCotter… and last night he did not disappoint. A future politician to watch!
CNNâ€™s Ivan Watson was left dumbfounded on Wednesday during an interview with an unnamed eyewitness in Iran who told the news network that security forces mercilessly beat protesters.
The woman, whose identity CNN chose to keep secret for fear of reprisal by the Iranian government, also said she believed security forces had fired into a crowd.
â€œThe black-clad police, they stopped everyone, they emptied the buses that were taking people [to the protests] â€¦ and then all of a sudden some 500 people with clubs and boots [came out of a mosque] and they poured into the street and they started beating everyone,â€ the eyewitness said.
â€œThey beat a woman so savagely that she was drenched in blood, and her husband was watching the scene â€” he just fainted.â€
Watson was left dumbfounded as the near-hysterical interviewee gave an impromptu plea for help from the West.
â€œThis was a massacre,â€™ she said. â€œThey were trying to beat people so that they would die. They were beating old men. This was exactly a massacre. You should stop this. You should help the people of Iran who demand freedom.â€
On Friday, Laura Ingraham (in for O’Reilly) had guests Brigitte Gabriel, found of ACT! For America, as well as Justin Logan of the CATO Institute. The topic of discussion was the current Iranian revolution that is obviously taking place. Brigitte has a special knowledge of what’s happening in the region, as she grew up in Lebanon under Islamic thugocracy rule.
Pray for the people of Iran, who only want freedom. And especially pray for the family of Neda, who has become the face of the brutality of the Iranian regime.
