Hot on the heels of this weeks ACT for America's announcement that Brandeis University, under pressure from Muslim groups like CAIR, has reversed its decision to grant an honorary degree to a women's rights activist and vocal critic of Islam, Ayaan Hirsi Ali, comes a report from The Clarion Project that their film 'Honor Diaries' about Muslim Female Abuse has been canned by three American Universities under the sway of Islam. Here is the email I received today:
We need your help! It will take just a moment of your time.
Due to pressure from powerful Islamist groups in America, three universities have cancelled screenings of Clarion Project's latest film Honor Diaries.
Honor Diaries addresses the abuses women and girls face in Muslim-majority societies: forced marriage, female genital mutilation, denial of education, restriction of movement and -- the ultimate -- honor killings.
The film's story is told by nine courageous women's rights activists who witnessed firsthand the oppression women endure and profiles their efforts to affect change in Muslim-majority societies.
We cannot let the Islamists silence the voices of these brave women.

The dire situation in which many Muslim women find themselves is not restricted to situations involving the poor and uneducated in Islam. On Monday March 24, 2014 the Clarion Project site featured an article about how the Saudi King has held his daughters prisoner for 13 years since their mother fled to London after her divorce. Princess Al Fayez has made every effort to see her children released, including submitting a deposition to the UN Special Rapporteur on Human Rights.
Christian girls in Egypt are being kidnapped, raped, made to convert and forced into marriages due to the "twin-headed cultural hydra" of "deep-seeded Muslim and male supremacism," warns a 2012 study that is getting renewed attention.
International Christian Concern is reporting that 2014 has already seen a spike in the number of Christian girls in Egypt being abducted. Sexual harassment, sexual assault, rapes, forced conversions, forced marriages and even being forced into working without pay (slavery) are all major problems.
The new legislation, which institutes sharia law in family matters, will be sent to the legislature for approval.
The legislation would change Iraq's current personal status law, which has been called the most progressive in the Muslim-majority Middle East countries. The current laws uphold women's rights in the areas of marriage, child custody and inheritance.
The new legislation would permit marriage for girls as young as nine-years old. In the case of divorce, custody of any child over the age of two would automatically be given to the father. In addition, the new legislation allows marital rape, giving the man the right to sexual intercourse with his wife whenever he chooses. Overall, all marriages, divorces and inheritance cases would be legislated according to the Ja'afi interpretation of shariah law and administered by Shiite clergy members
I personally try never to miss an opportunity to lash out at a hypocritical entity that presents itself as caring for humanity; which calls for non-discrimination, and which demands Justice for all, but which is in reality, a deceiver of the gullible and a destroyer of western culture, tradition and religion. That entity presents itself under many different nice sounding names like 'social justice', 'political correctness,' 'boycott Israel movement,' 'multiculturalism,' and a host of others.
The ideology is always the same - 'Righteous and Just treatment of all.' But as we can see by the two articles listed above concerning the Islamic influence in American Universities, those of whom we ought to expect the most righteous and just behavior, eventually find that their 'precious ideology' comes with a price -- hypocritical subservience to political power.
I have my own personal connection to Islam, a connection which at times seems to demand that I give up my personal democratic right to support whatever cause I wish, in order to keep that family connection. But as that family member has discovered, I will not be blackmailed and from what I see in the articles relating to those American universities, blackmail seems to be the standard M.O. of Islam.
I am not a Muslim and although I do choose to live in a Communist country, I grew up believing in democracy. But what I see passing for democracy in the west today makes me shudder as I realize that freedom is more easily found in China than in the democratic west.
The Chinese got rid of political correctness and other subservient ideologies and it is high time the west did too. Politically Correct Ideology is the most perverted hypocritical ideology to be spawned in the democratic environment. It teaches people to believe what they are told, and then controls them to do the will of those who lead them, and ultimately steals from them the very righteousness, justice and liberty to which the ideology first appealed.
Shame on the American universities for succumbing to the totalitarian, hypocritical, undemocratic, unrighteous and unjust demands of Islam. (And if CAIR and other organizations are not representative of Islam then it is high time for Muslims to declare it so. An irrelevant action at best.)
So there you have it. The Patriarch Joseph was born in 1683BC. He was set over the Kingdom of Egypt in 1656BC. The Israelite Sojourn in Egypt commenced in 1648BC. Joseph died in 1582BC. The Hyksos were expelled in 1554BC. Moses was born in 1523BC.The Exodus commenced in 1449BC. The Israelites entered Caanan in 1412BC and 480 years later in the 4th year of Solomon the first temple commenced construction in 970 BC.
I am going to make some statements about the USA as might be found in the newspaper of a mythical communist country called, ‘The Democratic Marxist Republic of Californication.’ In doing so, I am going to be making statements that a casual world news observer or internet savvy foreigner might actually consider to be factual based on extensive exposure to western media.
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!

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]
