Tommorow is the Fourth of July which for Americans is our Independence Day.  It comes once a year but there is also another freedom in the spiritual realm, freedom from sin and what Christ has done for our freedom is celebrated not once a year but once a week.

Here’s a verse from Galatians 5:1=

Liberty Defined Ron Paul

Ron Paul. Liberty Defined: 50 Essential Issues That Affect Our Freedom by Ron Paul.  New York, NY: Grand Central Publishing, April 19th, 2011.325 pp.

            In light of this being an election year I think this book is quite relevant to read even though neither Ron Paul nor his son is in the election.  What I appreciate about Ron Paul is his conscious effort in being principled in his approach towards politics and this book truly reflect what’s important for him: Liberty.  He makes the point that the term liberty can be quite misconstrued today so it is important to talk about what liberty is and the importance of safeguarding it.

Gay Wedding Cake At Muslim Bakeries

This is too good not to post in light of all the discussion about the Religious Freedom Restoration Act.

I wonder if the Left will try to go force Muslim bakers and cake makers to bake Gay Wedding Cakes?  Or worst, do what they did to an Indiana Family Pizza Shop, threaten them.  I don’t condone that at all by the way, just noting the double standard.

Louder With Crowder went and asked some Muslim Bakers if they would make a Gay Wedding Cake.  The answer is what you expected.

Islam, Deception, Sharia and Intolerance….in the USA…

This is wrong.  From what I understand, the Christians who have been wronged by the guards are going to take it to court.

Let others know, share this video.

It seems as if freedom of speech is okay for every perspective except for Prolifers for the City of Oakland

They are trying to pass an ordinance to hinder Freedom of Speech and they built their case with fabricated lies.

City officials alleged there was a rising tide of complaints of “harassment” of clinic patients and staff and state and federal laws don’t offer enough protections. They want to impose penalties of up to a year in jail and fines of up to $2,000 for violators of their new speech regulation. A final vote is set for Dec. 4.

But city officials are wrong on both counts, Johnson insisted, pointing out there were no records of complaints, no injunctions, no records of lawsuits, no record of police action and no record of any kind submitted to support the allegation that such situations are a problem.

I thought I share an interesting Associated Press article that I found from Yahoo.

http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20071025/ap_on_re_mi_ea/bin_laden_tape_1&printer=1;_ylt=Ak4vNLxdJih5tiT7fmBlBM8UewgF

Below is the excerpt with my side comments:

Al-Qaida anger at Jazeera on Laden tape

By MAGGIE MICHAEL, Associated Press WriterThu Oct 25, 4:22 PM ET

Al-Qaida sympathizers have unleashed a torrent of anger against Al-Jazeera television, accusing it of misrepresenting Osama bin Laden’s latest audiotape by airing excerpts in which he criticizes mistakes by insurgents in Iraq.

Users of a leading Islamic militant Web forum posted thousands of insults against the pan-Arab station for focusing on excerpts in which bin Laden criticizes insurgents, including his followers.

Analysts said the reaction highlighted militants’ surprise at bin Laden’s words, and their dismay at the deep divisions among al-Qaida and other Iraqi militants that he appeared to be trying to heal.

“It’s not about Al-Jazeera, it’s about their shock from bin Laden,” said Diaa Rashwan, an Egyptian expert on Islamic militant groups. “For the first time, bin Laden, who used to be the spiritual leader who gives guidance, became a critic of al-Qaida and is confessing mistakes. This is unusual.”

MY COMMENT:

Do those in Iraq or anywhere else in the world really want to live in a place where there can be no discussion or publicizing the weakness of Radical Islam?

Imagine thousands of threats not for talking bad about radical Islam, but for broadcasting Osama’s encouragement to insurgents to unite together in one cause as somehow a threat!

“God fight Al-Jazeera,” railed one militant Web poster, calling the station a “collaborator with the Crusaders” for suggesting the tape showed weakness in al-Qaida and featuring discussions of how the tape reflected weaknesses and divisions among insurgents in Iraq.

The recording aired Monday contained unusually strong criticism of insurgents in Iraq from bin Laden, who urges them to admit mistakes and unify. Bin Laden even aknowledges that he advises himself not to be “fanatical” in his stances.

MY RESPONSE:

Ironically, its Osama’s criticism that is being aired and not Al Jazeera going about with their pundits criticizing Al Qaida

(Do Al Jazeera ever level criticism towards Al Qaida? My Arabic is weak at the moment)

Were these new recording by Osama meant to be heard only for insurgents?

Yet, if Osama releases these recordings through the same jihad medium and forums that have been used for the purpose of letting the World hear it, why would Al Qaida and their sympathizers getting angry or be suprised at the fact that this is being publicized for the World to hear with what Osama did say???

….

But the Al-Fajr Media Center, which usually posts al-Qaida video and audio tapes on the Web, accused Al-Jazeera of “counterfeiting the facts” by making the speech appear as exclusively critical of insurgents.

“Al-Jazeera directors have shamefully chosen to back the Crusaders’ side, and the defenders of hypocrites and the thugs and traitors of Iraq,” Al-Fajr said in a statement posted on several Islamic Web sites.

Another Web contributor even rattled off a five-stanza poem of rhymed couplets, comparing the station to a “miserable fly in the garbage” and concluding, “Your day will come, vile one. As long as we live, you won’t be safe, Jazeera.”

Few of the thousands of messages posted by contributors on the Web sites — who are only identified by usernames — called for direct violence against Al-Jazeera. Most instead urged that the full bin Laden tape be distributed as widely as possible on the Web to show its true message.

MY COMMENT:

If there is one thing the world needs to remember, it is the fact that this war waged by Al Qaida is heavily dependent on an information and propaganda war of words and ideology

The importance of ‘image’ and protraying a world of appearances is just as important as the actual violence

Ironically, bad PR can be a more larger strategic loss than their own combat losses on the ground

Bin Laden’s message came at a time of deepening splits in the Sunni Arab insurgency in Iraq. Some insurgent groups have formed a coalition rivaling one set up by al-Qaida in Iraq. Other factions have broken away and joined U.S. troops in fighting al-Qaida. A group of Sunni Arab tribes in the western province of Anbar also have campaigned against al-Qaida.

MY COMMENT:

The real problem for Al Qaida’s vision of a Pan-Islamic Empire?
