Ohio Mosque Promotes MurderWritten by David Ben-Ariel
Continued from page 1
So I know, firsthand, how many people can profess that their religion is "peaceful" to a naive Western audience and whistle a totally different tune to their own masses.
I've also lived in predominately Arab East Jerusalem, just outside Damascus Gate, working for my great American-Israeli Jewish manager under our millionnaire Muslim boss (who was exceptionally gracious). I know from a grassroots level what a farce lying "peace" process is, and how such a false peace is based upon lies and delusions and is destined to crash and burn. All this is not popular to say, nevertheless it is plain truth.
Time will surely reveal that peace is possible between Israel and Ishmael, Christians, Jews and Muslims - as Jerusalem-based Root & Branch Islam-Israel Fellowship proves - but it must be based upon Bible and reality, not upon lying visions of false prophets pushing an empty peace.
David Ben-Ariel, an American author who has travelled widely and who has lived throughout Israel, shares a special focus on the Middle East and great interest in Jerusalem, reflected in hard-hitting articles that help others improve their understanding of that troubled region that is destined to affect us all.

The Cloning DebateWritten by Peter Kennedy
Continued from page 1
There are practical considerations to cloning debate, as well. Most medical experts believe that reproductive human cloning would not produce a health newborn. Indeed, many scientists predict that cloning would produce harmful abnormalities in a baby’s genes. Many scientists and medical practitioners welcome advance of cloning for individual human cells. This process, called therapeutic cloning, adopts concept of cloning on a micro scale, to help regenerate broken or diseased body parts. Some politicians, such as Republican Senator Arlen Spector of Pennsylvania, support idea of therapeutic cloning.
Critics of therapeutic cloning argue that process should be prohibited, no matter how beneficial practical applications may turn out to be. The most vocal critics of therapeutic cloning, mainly from religious communities, argue that destruction of human life, even on cellular level, is a moral offense. These cells form beginning of human life, and humans do not have right to destroy life in order to create life. The creation of life, they argue, should be left to God.
The cloning debate lends itself to larger questions, including: Is it immoral to recreate life artificially? Does human life really begin at cellular level? Should government interfere with scientific advances that could benefit millions of people?
