Of Snakes and Terrorism

Written by Maureen Metcalf

Withrepparttar passing of Arafat,repparttar 125925 Middle East will take on a slightly different face, allowingrepparttar 125926 possibilities for prophetic fulfillment to speed up. The pathway is now open for renewed efforts to procure peace inrepparttar 125927 Middle East, usingrepparttar 125928 avenue ofrepparttar 125929 formation ofrepparttar 125930 promised Palestinian State. But this window of opportunity may not remain open for long. Indeed pressure is now mounting fromrepparttar 125931 United States, encouraged by Britian, to get on withrepparttar 125932 steps necessary to implementrepparttar 125933 terms ofrepparttar 125934 "Road Map." January 9, 2005 has already been scheduled for Palestinian elections. The emerging line-up of candidates all have questionable backgrounds harking back to their various roles duringrepparttar 125935 Arafat era. It goes without saying,repparttar 125936 achievement ofrepparttar 125937 Palestinian goals will be a power struggle fanned byrepparttar 125938 more radical insurgents and hard-liner Islamic regimes. Hamas has already stated it is planning to increase pressure on Israel by escalating their terrorist activity in Gaza andrepparttar 125939 West Bank, whereas Islamic Jihad, Fatah, andrepparttar 125940 Al Aksa Brigade ( now being referred to asrepparttar 125941 Arafat Brigade) have issued statements they are planning to halt all atrocities untilrepparttar 125942 election is over. And, while Egypt and many other Arab League countries applauded Arafat's apparent achievements on behalf ofrepparttar 125943 Palestinians, Kuwait is appalled that anyone would be so short-sighted as to give any honor to an avowed terrorist murderer. So,repparttar 125944 Arab world has many issues to address, if they are to appear to mount a united front againstrepparttar 125945 West But, will sane, cool heads prevail? Will Israel use this opportunity to take decisive steps to maintain hold on her Covenant Land, or will she instead doggedly continue downrepparttar 125946 destructive path Sharon is still insisting upon? Israel hasrepparttar 125947 option of being strong inrepparttar 125948 face of her enemies, or giving in to international negative pressures. To illustraterepparttar 125949 trap Israel is in danger of falling into, I would like to share a letter I wrote to Ruth Matar ofrepparttar 125950 Women in Green, in anticipation of Arafat's demise. REJOICE, BUT DO NOT CELEBRATE! Dear Ruth, We cannot, and we definitely ought not to bring ourselves to grieve over Arafat's death. He was a terrorist -- a heartless butcher!! He was not just a criminal murderer. He went far beyondrepparttar 125951 criminal to being an avowed monster! Even Muslim regimes, (Jordan, Lebanon, Tunisia,) ousted him from their countries because he was too evil to be allowed to remain within their jurisdictions! Even so, we must not seek vengeance, because that is not within our mandate. Inrepparttar 125952 Day of Judgmentrepparttar 125953 L_RD will avenge. While a man is alive, there is hope for repentance, but once he has passed beyond this earthly realm, his fate is sealed, and G_d will deal with him in due time. What is most amazing isrepparttar 125954 fact that Arafat, with his impassioned intent on annihilating Israel, was allowed to enter, let alone dwell within Israel's borders! What was Israel's premise? It is best to have your enemy where you can keep an eye on him? Great idea, but it obviously did not work overly well! Instead, he was a deadly snake in Israel's fields!! But unlikerepparttar 125955 reptile version which does not strike unless threatened, he actively, and with demonic glee, coiled against his innocent victims, effectively plotting to strike with deadly venom. And, as if that was not bad enough, his subversiveness, ideology, and methodology, was perpetuated by training and grooming slithery terrorist bands to multiply his evil schemes. So yes, we must in all honesty rejoice that such an one has been silenced. But Arafat was at least one venomous snake that was positively identified, and even caged for a time in Ramalla. What is more dangerous now, and deadly, is his serpentine ''offspring." Although he is now not just defanged, but out ofrepparttar 125956 picture, we must not let down our guard for even an instant. His larger than life persona, and legacy, will with misguided religious fervor, fanrepparttar 125957 fires of Islamic radical terrorism. We cannot allow ourselvesrepparttar 125958 glee of celebration! If only it was a simple matter to free this world of evil byrepparttar 125959 demise of one man! Unfortunately, evil does remain. Evil breeds more evil, andrepparttar 125960 legacy of evil is multiplied evil. We cannot allow ourselvesrepparttar 125961 luxury of uttering one sigh of relief, lest while we celebrate with even a hint of distracted abandon,repparttar 125962 multiplied evil slithers in to destroy. If onlyrepparttar 125963 likes of Arafat were simply an isolated anomaly! We must count onrepparttar 125964 fact that evil loves company, and when an ideology is invoked,repparttar 125965 one who is behindrepparttar 125966 stated mission will make certain his goals are perpetuated until accomplished by those following in his wake. Arafat obviously applied this premise, but not inrepparttar 125967 usual manner. He did not groom a successor. In not making certain there was an

John Kerry Won the Election... Or so Says Harvard University

Written by Gary R. Hess

The elections in America have become a joke.

For those of you who don't know, your vote may not actually count especially if you are from a county which is made up of minorities.

The average percentage of vote not counted during each election year is 3% ranging from 1% in some states to 4% in others.

A study inrepparttar year 2002 by Harvard University shows that ofrepparttar 125924 top 100 Counties which heldrepparttar 125925 highest ‘spoilage’ 67 of those counties were made up more than 12% African American whereasrepparttar 125926 lowest 100 Counties with spoilage were above 75% white.

By mathematical standards this is a STRONG correlation of black votes being excluded. Ifrepparttar 125927 votes had been counted in 2000 Al Gore won by a landslide. If they were counted in 2004, John Kerry wins New Mexico and Ohio very handily and becomes president in 2005.

For more info on this:

There are a total of 247,672 votes not counted in Ohio, if you addrepparttar 125928 92,672 discarded votes plusrepparttar 125929 155,000 provisional ballots (which happened to be predominantly Kerry votes).
