MUSLIMS AT HOMELAND SECURITY - Barack Obama has appointed Los Angeles Deputy Mayor Arif Alikhan, a Muslim, as Assistant Secretary for the Office of Policy Development at the Department of Homeland Security. During his years in Los Angeles, Alikhan derailed police plans to monitor radical mosques and madrassas. The 9-11 terrorists had some support from Los Angeles.

Alikhan is anti-Israel and has called Hezbollah a "liberation movement." The US government still has Hezbollah on the official terrorist list. He is also associated with the Muslim Public Affairs Council which has some connections to the Muslim Brotherhood according to various sources.

Earlier this year Secretary Napolitano, who heads Homeland Security, swore in Syrian-born Kareem Shora to a position on the Homeland Security Advisory Council. This is an outside-the-department group of national security experts that advises the Secretary. Shora, an immigration attorney, is associated with the American-Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee, a group founded by James Zogby. His primary focus is to stop the profiling of radical Muslims by law enforcement agencies.

NO REPORT THIS WEEK - I have been out of the country and unable to monitor Capitol Hill as usual. My reports on Congress will continue next week

KILL THE JEWS - Sit back, close your eyes and just imagine what would happen if a Christian hosted an Internet site that had a headline saying, "KILL THE HOMOSEXUALS." Immediately, the New York Times, Washington Post, ABC, CNN, CBS and NBC would run multiple stories exposing the "hatred." A boycott would be run against Internet providers that carried this "hate speech." Now open your eyes to a real New York site that says, "KILL THE JEWS." Hmmm ... No stories in the New York Times or the Washington Post. No calls for boycotts of Internet service providers by CNN. "KILL THE JEWS" or "KILL THE CHRISTIANS" is just a part of free speech. What was it again that Glenn Beck said that caused the advertising boycott against him? Maybe if instead he had said, "KILL THE JEWS," the liberals would not have started their advertising boycott at all. Read more

SAFE HOUSES FOR JEWS IN EUROPE? - Many Israeli officials are now fearful of any travel to Europe. They could be arrested for "war crimes" because they helped to defend the Jewish state from terrorist attacks. During the Nazi occupation, there were "safe houses" where Jews could hide. With the rising tide of anti-Semitism in Europe fueled by Muslim petro- dollars, "safe houses" may be needed again. Meanwhile the leaders of Hamas, who ordered thousands of rocket launches at Israeli civilian sites including day care centers for infants, are welcomed as heroes in Europe by the elite universities and praised by liberal establishment newspapers.

IRAQI CHRISTIAN REFUGEES - The persecution of our brothers and sisters in Christ who fled Iraq has gotten worse since our troops left the cities. Rather than Christians returning to Iraq, more are making their way to Jordan and Syria. Our ministry is barred from operating in Syria, but our feeding and medical program continues in Jordan. A third shipment of medical supplies has been delivered, and last week we funded our feeding program in Amman for another three months. Your help is still needed.
