My Thoughts on the recent Paris Terrorist Attacks, based on "The Quran and the Siege of Paris (David Wood)" via YouTube

It has been a week since Paris was hit twice within the same calendar year. This recent attack during a concert and at a cafe would make many think that this was random, but far from it. With France leading the way in airstrikes on ISIS in Raqqa, Syria, it was more of a revenge attack. Though history shows that the French seem to be rather resilient, but it seems that everyone forgets who ISIS is, who the terrorists were in the recent shooting/bombing in Paris -- devout followers of Mohammad the "prophet". In the video below, David Wood explains why the terrorists did what they did.

Now with ISIS threatening to repeat its actions in Washington, DC, and NYC (my home city), I would like to say that those the NYPD states that they have no "creditable threats", please still be careful. An attack can happened without the police knowing anything.

Yet Another "Free Palestine" Protest

I seem to have the amazing luck of running into these "Free Palestine" protests in Times Square. I ran into one last year while meeting up with a friend for a prayer night at her church downtown and I happened to walk towards Times Sq to take the train. Lo, and behold, Friday, Sept 18th, I run into another one on the intersection of 41st St & 7th Ave. I chose not to engage in debate, nor ask questions with my large, 10th anniversary CUFI Summit tote bag. I just took some footage and went on my way.

Now, my question is, where's all the anti-ISIS protests? Where are all the demonstrations against persecution of Christians? Oh, but everyone is A-OK with throwing Israel under the bus for nothing once in a while. But it's not like this is a first for Israel. Anti-semitic people like these have been trampling on her flag ever since Israel was reunified in May of 1948. To Israel, vile acts like are just another day in the life of being God's chosen people & His holy land.

If you're still on the fence as to who's right, in your research, be sure the facts are verified.

At the same time, us Christians have to love ALL people as Jesus does.

CNN: Fort Hood victims to be awarded Purple Hearts

I couldn't help but to rejoice I was when I randomly say this headline. I happened to see it at work and did my best to contain my joy.

For those who don't know about the Fort Hood shootings in 2009, here's some cliff notes:

  • Army psychiatrist Nidal Hassan opened fire on the base, killing XX people
  • Soon after the attacks, President Obama dismissed it as "work place violence" when Hassan was shouting ALLAHU AKBAR while shooting. 
  • Hassan's business card read "Soldier of Allah"

There were a number of other glaring clues that the attack was, indeed, Islamic-driven, not just "work place violence".

All in all, I'm just happy that these brave soldiers finally received what they deserved. I salute them.

Below is an excerpt from the CNN story:

(CNN) -- The U.S. Army will begin awarding Purple Hearts to those killed or wounded in the 2009 shooting at Fort Hood, Texas. 
Secretary of the Army John McHugh announced the decision in a statement Friday, calling the honor "an appropriate recognition of their service and sacrifice."
The Army will also award the civilian equivalent of the Purple Heart, the Defense of Freedom Medal, to non-military victims. 
"The Purple Heart's strict eligibility criteria had prevented us from awarding it to victims of the horrific attack at Fort Hood," McHugh said, but noted that recent legislation has allowed them to move forward in recognizing the victims. 
The decision was made possible by an amendment to the 2015 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA), sponsored by Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas), which expanded eligibility for the Purple Heart to include troops killed in an attack where "the individual or entity was in communication with the foreign terrorist organization before the attack," and where "the attack was inspired or motivated by the foreign terrorist organization."
"It's long past time to call the Fort Hood attack what it was: radical Islamic terrorism," Cruz said in a statement in December, after the NDAA was passed. "And, this recognition for Fort Hood terrorist victims is overdue. The victims and their families deserve our prayers and support, and this legislation rightly honors them for defending our nation in the face of a heinous act of terror."
