Muslim belief is that ultimately everything is Allah's will. Whether they approve or disapprove of the Kenyan massacres is irrelevant. It is Allah's will! Whether ordinary Muslims approve or disapprove of those terrorists is irrelevant. It is Allah's will! Whatever a Muslim may say with his lips, his true meaning is hidden in the back of his mind. It is Allah's will! Every Muslim, like every other true believer in every other religion, dreams of seeing the world converted to their god. For the Muslim therefore, every action that leads to the defeat or conversion of the infidel must be Allah's will.
Imagine the uproar if that ethnic and religious cleansing had taken place this week. Picture the hollering human-rights activists, the emergency session at the United Nations, the promise of action against the perpetrators who had singled out non-Christians for execution.
One must ask why it is that Muslims in general and human rights groups in particular are not up in arms over this very deliberate act of targetting and murdering Christians as they are when Israel does anything at all in relation to the Palestinians. If the massacre in Kenya were a very deliberate act of targetting and murdering Muslims instead of Christian then the whole world certainly would be enraged because it would offend our human rights and multicultural sensibilities. Only a few days earlier in another of their emails "Act! for America" questioned why it is that in America the media does all it can to erase mention of Islam, Islamist, Muslim and Terrorist from their reporting on quite clear acts of Islamic Jihadist terrorism.
Between the two articles it becomes obvious that the politically motivated Islamic Fundamentalists who want to conquer the west have already won. The west is cowering before the might of politically correct language, calling snakes lizards and eagles doves. Meanwhile the Islamics do not mince words. Are you a Muslim? NO? BANG!
We know why the human rights groups and other bloody bleeding hearts groups are silent. They have to be. They cannot object to the slaughter of innocents in Kenya or anywhere else for that matter, because their bed partners won't allow it. They have a political agenda to push and that is all that matters - Death to the Jews! Death to Democracy! Death to Freedom! But what of the everyday Muslim? Why do we perceive that they are not rising up in protest at this and other massacres? Well there are two reasons.
The first reason is that they too are in bed with the politically motivated. They too live in fear of what will happen to them if their masters get sufficiently angry with them. "You said what?" BANG!
The other reason is far more subtle and has to do with the Islamic belief system!
In China I have learned by direct instruction from Chinese friends that one should never speak directly. While one's words should sound good the true meaning and intent of the heart should remain hidden. Put another way 'we speak words with our mouths but our meaning is at the back of our minds.' (Communism is a masterful teacher of Political Correctness and the Chinese have learned well.) This mentality is not restricted however to the Chinese.

When a Muslim preacher utters something disgusting that the non-Muslim community can neither ignore nor condone, the Muslim community will apologize for it or say that the comments were taken out of context but they will make it clear that the majority of Muslims also do not condone the statements attributed to those speakers. But are ever so offended that they will get rid of such people from their midst? I don't know!
Muslim communities do make claims in relation to their stance on violence, women's rights etc and do involve themselves in community activities liaising with police and non-Muslim community organizations. But what they aren't seen to be doing is plucking off the rotten fruit from their branches. What they do not do is "March against Muslim violence". Oh they will march for 'peace in the Middle East' and human rights and have marched against the terrorist actions of the Israelis, but do they rise up and march against fanatical Muslim religious violence?
Do they demonstrate to their non-Muslim western host nations that they abhor Muslim violence as much as they abhor any other type of violence? Or do they speak one thing through smiling lips while their true meaning is at the back of their minds?
Let every knee bow and let every tongue confess that Allah is the Lord - then you will be saved! Just ask the people in the Kenyan shopping mall.
Because the killing of Christians and other “kafirs” took place in a shopping mall and because some of the victims were white, the Nairobi story has dominated the headlines. Another massacre in Pakistan on Sunday barely registered. Some 350 worshippers at All Saints in Peshawar were laying on a free lunch for the needy when two suicide bombers killed 80 people. The attack is part of a savage pattern of assaults on Christians, from Iraq to Egypt.
Why the embarrassed silence when it comes to Islamist persecution of Christians?
Disciplining yourself to pay attention to the actual words used and the actual meaning of the sentence is very important, especially so since so much of what purports to be news is little more than the writer’s opinion about the facts of the news. Unfortunately, people easily succumb to emotive language such as ‘Donald Trump demonstrates his stupidity again!’ Such a headline is designed to reinforce in the minds of those who don’t like Trump, that he is an idiot. Another thing of which to be careful when reading is the inclination to ‘interpret’ what we read within the context of our religious, cultural and political worldviews.
When you stand to speak you are doing more than reciting words. You are in fact engaged in communicating with an audience your opinions, ideas, feelings, passions and/or knowledge on a subject. They expect you to express yourself with feeling and passion and to actually know what you are talking about. Therefore it is essential that you KNOW what you are talking about – and – show the appropriate body language, gestures, actions and emotions associated with your topic.
The kids used to turn up repeatedly throughout the day just to look at the foreigner, touch him, feel the hair on his (the monkey’s) arms and generally just gawk. China has changed a lot over the years but there have been times when a foreigner in a small town or village would attract huge crowds. Sometimes people would be known to suddenly come upon you, look up at your face and just plain scream! I’m not joking!
Where were these PC (expletive) when I and others were writing years ago about the Syrian crisis? Did they care about the Syrian people? No they didn’t! Do these same sociopathic western political activists who would call me a racist support Muslim and other cultures similar practices such as female circumcision? – polygamy? – arranged marriages? No they don’t! They outlaw it! So don’t talk to me about how I am a racist!
I do apologize for the singing – mine – and by way of explanation, the reason that you hear me saying ‘hello’ (twice) is that a man told his son to say hello and when I decided to say ‘hello’ a lady walking passed me thought I had said it to her and so she also greeted me with ‘hello!’
Everyone is so concerned to be politically correct and so worried about being perceived racist, that they fail to see that in fact the true racists with the truly incorrect political agenda are the ones pointing the finger and doing the name calling. (In psychology it would be called reaction formation; the suppression of one impulse by the promotion of a counter impulse.)

BenDedek originally created the site to publicize his research results into the Chronology of Ancient Israel. Those results were published under the title: 'The King's Calendar: The Secret of Qumran.' Whilst there have been many attempts to solve the chronological riddle of the Bible's synchronisms of reigns of the kings of Israel and Judah and their synchronism with other Ancient Near Eastern Nations, no other research is based on a simple mathematical formula which could, if it is incorrect, be disproved easily. To date, no one has been able to dismiss the mathematical results of this research.

Definition: King's Calendar Chronological Research
The Premise: Between the 5th and 3rd centuries BCE (but continuing down to at least 104 BCE), Sectarian redactors transcribed the legitimate 'solar year' chronological records of Israel and Judah, into an artificial form, with listed years as each comprised of 12 months of 4 weeks of 7 days, or 336 days per year, thus creating a 13th artificial year where 12 solar years existed.
When the Synchronous Chronological Data provided in the Books of Kings and Chronicles for the Divided Kingdom Period are measured in years of 336 days, the synchronisms actually align. [Refer to Appendix 5. to see how it synchronises the Divided Kingdom Period]
