Christian Apathy Contributes to Terrorism and Anti-Semitism

Where are all of the Christians who should be standing for right and against wrong? Where are all of the Christians who should be standing for Israel? G-d Himself in Genesis 12:3 said, “I will bless those who bless you (Israel) and the one who curses you (does not stand) I will curse.”

A basic premise of Christian faith and roots has everything to do with Israel.  To ignore Israel is to shun G-d’s word of an eternal covenant with His Chosen People, the Jews, and an eternal covenant cannot be broken.  Our silence in our own countries also affects Israel, its land and people.  It is imperative that Christians all over the world stand and contend for Israel.

Calm Before the Storm in the Middle East

So now the three Biblically required attended feasts for the calendar year are ended. The Shemitah year is finished for this cycle and the four blood moons have appeared. The US did not stop the Iran Deal. The Pope met with Obama during the days of awe. And the world has not ended, at least not yet.

Though these events are thought to portend a particularly doomsday scenario, they have not, just as Y2K did not. Life goes on - even in the Middle East and in Israel. Same complaints, same problems, same joy in life events. Nothing has changed. It’s the status quo.

Islam in Revival

Many religious and political discussion forums are taking place across America and around the world in an attempt to foster understanding and tolerance between Christians, Jews and Muslims.  I, too, am a proponent of the concept of understanding.  To be able to co-exist with Muslims, Christians and Jews and the West in general must possess more than a surface or media-generated understanding of the Islamic mindset.  What I have observed coming from these forums thus far clearly indicates that we are failing to grasp even the basics principals necessary to understand Islamic thought and reasoning.

Muslims Can’t Exist Peacefully Side By Side

Conflict between Jews and Muslims is certainly nothing new.  In the Middle East it has been going on for centuries producing war after war and conflict after conflict.  Death is always the result.  The dead on both sides, both Jews and Muslims, are buried in the ground - the very same ground deeded to the Jews by God Himself in an eternal covenant with Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. The bodies of the dead, Muslims and Jews alike, ‘rest in peace’ side by side buried in the same ground as their ancestors.  Can Muslims only exist peacefully side by side with Jews in death?

Terrorism in America – Fighting an Enemy Whose Name Cannot Be Spoken

Terrorism in America – Fighting an Enemy Whose Name Cannot Be Spoken

While the U.S. was still reeling from the devastation caused by the Boston bombing and before it was known who was responsible for the act, there were those on the left who assumed, even hoped, that it was an act of right-wing terrorism.  When their hopes were dashed, they took a detour from grieving for the victims and began instead to focus on, as they imagined it, the probability of backlash against Muslim Americans. Apparently, they anticipated a string of retributive attacks against Muslim Americans. These speculators tend to be very selective about which victims deserve their attention and empathy.  And, their ideology is based on the belief that “Islamophobia” like its cohort, racism, is a prevalent force in the world.

News Briefs Pulled Up: Amber Alert Hoax-Obama's Birthday-Saving Babies, Rev. Johnny Jones-and More

But first, this headlined story tease in today's Irish Central newspaper:

Cavan bishop finally laid to rest in Perth diocese he created
Thursday, August 4, 2011, 4:47 AM
"The Irish bishop credited for the spread of Catholicism in Western Australia was finally buried at the parish he founded after his death 140 years ago." How's that again?  We suppose that anyone who can found a parish 140 years after he died deserves to be in the headlines.

Obama's Birthday is today, or so it is announced. Can we be absolutely sure about this birth date since he won't show us his original birth certificate? Happy Birthday Anyhow.

The Bible says that with faith Christians can move mountains (Mark 11:23). Devout Christian, Art Mijares, isn't trying to move a mountain, he just wants to rename it, Reagan Mountain, instead of Mt. Diablo (devil in Spanish) which suggests that it is a monument to the devil. There have been several hearings in Contra Costa County, California on the issue. There's also been a lot of flack.

Citizen, a publication of Focus on The Family had an interesting editorial in the current issue by Tom Minnery, titled, "Free Speach Could Cost You." He writes: "Today, there is no live-and-let-live attitude by same-sex marriage proponents."

MilesTones: Note to Atheist--Kentucky U. Holocaust Update--Dating Site Forced To Offer Same Sex hookups? and more

NOTE TO AN ATHEIST: The Christian Post (CP) received a response from an atheist regarding their story, Os Guiness Calls for New Christian Renaisance, with a science reference. An atheist retorted, "It'll Never happen. The Fundies Hate Science." How's that again?

I sent a quick response which was up for about 10 seconds and it was immediately scrubbed. CP, that obviously has taken the Christianity Today liberal path, then blocked me from any access to their site, refusing to let me post anything.

Since I host the website; www.revaustinmiles.com with over 231,000 visitors, plus being picked up on news sites all over the world, we will publish the response that Christian Post refuses to do:

"I cannot allow the above response by Walter Valez, to conclude the discusion. The "Fundies" whom you falsely state, "hate science," are actually the FATHERS of science; Galileo, Newton, Pascal, Einstein (yes he believed in God) along with later "fundies" like Gregor Mendel who discovered Genetics later named, DNA. Mendel, a Czech monk was one of those ‘fundies' who "hate science.(?) This doesn't include the ‘fundies' who contributed to the law, and government formation like, Blackstone, and Locke or those who contributed to philosophy. Atheists, when you attempt to disparage and lie about Christianity, I urge you to do it with some degree of intellignece. Rev. Austin Miles."

Pastor Plays Hardball With Qu'ran: Jerry Newcombe Steps Up To The Keyboard

Rev. Terry Jones is a gift that keeps on giving. He publicly burned a Koran recently which resulted in riots in the Middle East. Jones next plans something that will gain him even more notoriety. He plans to conduct a ‘trial’ of Mohammed. If the Founder of Islam is found “guilty,” the sentence will be to burn Mohammed in effigy.  Jerry Newcombe, an author, film producer and popular Florida radio host steps up to the keyboard as a guest commentator on a hot issue.

A Christian Response to the Koran-Burning
By Jerry Newcombe

Pastor Terry Jones of Gainesville has garnered sensational headlines again. This is the Florida pastor who threatened to burn the Koran on 9/11 last yearAbout a week ago or so, he carried out his threat.  He videotaped the deliberate burning of a book that is sacred to millions of Muslims. And now there’s rioting in the streets of Afghanistan over this. Protesting Muslims have even beheaded some innocent Westerners, reportedly to protest this Koran-burning.

Burning Quran Not So Hot--Another Look

The publicity began full force in September of 2010 when a Florida pastor announced his upcoming, “Burn a Quran Day.” As controversy swelled, the event was on, then it was off, then it was on again. Pastor Terry Jones of the Dove World Outreach Center, a tiny church of 50 members, proclaimed that on September 11, 2010, on the 9th anniversary of the 9-11 sneak attacks on America by Muslims, the “Burn a Quran Day” would take place in the parking lot of his church.

That fire fizzled out as he cancelled the plan. However, he did recenlty go through with it, igniting a Quran along with a global powder keg. This writer thinks that the idea of burning copies of the Quran (or any other book) is not so hot, even though you will be surprised as to why this objection is offered. It’s not what you think.

When this plan first went public in 2010, the occupier of The Oval Office held a pathetic news conference where he virtually begged Pastor Jones not to go through with this idea, because this will upset Muslims which will put our miltary personnel at risk and would lead to violence to Americans overseas.

How’s that again? Our troops are ALREADY at risk, constantly. Not only those in Afghanistan and Iraq, but on our own miltary bases right here in America, such as Ft. Hood where a Muslim soldier stationed there, shot up the base, killing and wounding dozens of military personnel. There was no Quran burned.  As for attacks on Americans overseas, American civilians found we were not even safe from Muslims in our own country.

MilesTones-Looking Over The Shoulder

The website, www.revaustinmiles.com has grown considerabley with heavy traffic. News editors are picking up and publishing many of the breaking stories here, which they are free to do. The story, “Incredible Veteran’s Day Parade in Antioch,” really hit a responsive chord. It was published all over the world, including the newspaper, U.S.A. Today. The Great Chicken Trial of Brentwood (along with the follow-up stories) was listed in the top stories of 2010 by The Press in Brentwood. Editor Rick Lemyre makes it clear that this doesn’t mean most “important” but most ‘interesting and unusual,” which MilesTones is all about.

Tom Barnridge in his column in The Contra Costa Times (1/2/11) called the event of the famous chickens, Henny and Penny;  “Our favorite controversy” (of 2010). He even mentioned the cranky neighbor who complained that the “chickens poop 1000 times a day!” (which is a lot of .....ah forget it!)  prompting Mr. Bandridge to ask, “We wonder who did the counting?” Yep, that would take a lot of backyard surveilance. Anyway,  Henny and Penny were pleased by Mr. Barnridge’s mention.
