Ohio Mosque Promotes MurderWritten by David Ben-Ariel
One day - I'll never forget it - my former "Palestinian" student-neighbors purposely showed me a newsletter from Islamic Center in Perrysburg, Ohio that had a story from Haddith - sayings attributed to Mohammad - that spoke of a war in last days between Jews and Muslims, and how Jews would hide behind trees and trees would say, "There's a Jew behind me, kill him!" except for one tree that would shelter Jews.
The next month singles' club from Worldwide Church of God went to mosque for a dinner-tour, followed by a question and answer session with Egyptian imam/religious leader (who has since died and was praised as one who supposedly sought peace between different religions).
I repeated "spiritual lesson" to imam and asked him if Muslims had any such saying. He replied that Jews create such spurious sayings in order to discredit Islam and Arabs. I then shocked him, and audience, when I asked: "If that's not a Muslim story, and is spurious and created by Jews, then why would you, as leader of this Islamic community permit that very story to be published in your newsletter last month?" He was speechless.
The Cloning DebateWritten by Peter Kennedy
Cloning is process of creating an exact copy of original, and recently, “cloning” refers to replication of living humans and animals. Somatic cell nuclear transfer, as process is called, involves removing nucleus from an egg cell and replacing it with nucleus from a cell of organism to be cloned.
In past few years, advances have been made in both human and animal cloning. Scottish scientists famously cloned a sheep, and British scientists reportedly cloned a human embryo that survived for five days. Cloning is an extremely controversial subject that forces society to examine proper limits of man’s control over life.
In 1997, Scottish scientists famously produced a female sheep, “Dolly,” using process of reproductive cloning. Since that time, other scientists have cloned other species, including cows and rabbits. Most recently, scientists are attempting to reproduce humans through cloning.
President Bush and Republican party are strongly in opposition to human cloning. Conservatively tend to believe that life is a creation, “not a commodity,” and that human cloning would have a disastrous impact on American moral fabric. In 2002, Congress introduced a bill that would ban human cloning in all forms, imposing a prison sentence and multi-million dollar fine on anyone who attempted human cloning. (The Ban on Human Cloning Act has yet to be passed.)
