Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be thy Name. Thy kingdom come. THY WILL BE DONE, on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us. And lead us not into temptation, but DELIVER US FROM EVIL.

For Thine is the kingdom and the power and the glory, forever and ever. Amen †

      • This issue of Dems using Pakistani foreign nationals to hhandle their IT needs (thereby allowing access to “sensitive”US inner wirkings) could prove to be the BIG STORY that they are using the “Muh Russia” farce to distract from. Reporters need to keep hounding Dem leaders about this so they cant feign ignorance as Pelosi does in that video.

        If there was no “There” there, Debbie Wasserman Schultz would not be risking adding fuel to the fire by publicly pressuring the Chief of the Capitol Police to hand over evidence (a laptop that
        was stolen from her by Imram Awan or one of his associates).

        She is hiding sonething.

    Hamas executes 3 members accused of killing terror leader

    http://toi.sr/2rZ085a via @timesofisrael

    Two men hanged, one shot, for allegedly taking part in killing of Mazen Faqha; Gaza news agency broadcasts it live on Facebook
    BY AGENCIES AND TIMES OF ISRAEL STAFF May 25, 2017, 6:48 pm

    GAZA CITY, Gaza Strip — Hamas announced Thursday that it put to death three men accused of assassinating a senior member of the terror group in March.

    Mazen Faqha, a Hamas terror chief, was shot on March 24 outside his Gaza home. Hamas accuses the three suspects of collaborating with Israel and sentenced them to execution on Sunday.

    Israel has not confirmed or denied the accusations.

    Hamas’s Interior Ministry said two of the accused were hanged and one was killed by firing squad Thursday.

    The chief suspect, identified as Ashraf Abu Leila, 38, was sentenced to hang after being convicted of the murder in a Sunday court ruling. Hisham al-Aloul, 44, was also sentenced to hang, and Abdallah al-Nashar, faced the firing squad.

    A shaky video shot from a distance by a private news site purporting to show the execution was circulating online and broadcast live on Facebook.

    The footage showed some sort of public square lined with black-clad men.

    Hamas slammed the broadcast, warning against publishing the footage.

    “The interior ministry warns against publishing any footage or photos from the execution of the agents of the occupation involved in the assassination,” the Hamas-run ministry said in a statement. “Anyone who violates this will face legal measures.”

    The Gaza Now news agency, which live-streamed the execution from a distance, quickly responded to Hamas’s warning, saying that it had “not received any decision from the Interior Ministry or from the Media Office in Gaza to prevent the filming of the execution,” the site tweeted, adding that it had broadcast from the same site on Wednesday.

    Some 3,000 people were reportedly invited to attend the event.

    Human Rights Watch condemned the executions in a statement.

    “Rushing to put men to death based on an unreviewable decision of a special military court days after announcing their arrests and airing videoed confessions smacks of militia rule, not the rule of law,” Sarah Leah Whitson, HRW’s Middle East director, said.

    “Reliance on confessions, in a system where coercion, torture and deprivation of detainee’s rights are prevalent, and other apparent due process violations further taint the court’s verdicts. Death as government-sanctioned punishment is inherently cruel and always wrong, no matter the circumstance.”

    After Faqha’s killing, Hamas set up checkpoints throughout Gaza and barred all residents and foreign aid workers from leaving the coastal strip and going to Israel.

    It has since eased some of the restrictions.

    The death of Faqha, a shadowy senior figure in Hamas’s military wing, shocked Hamas, which has ruled Gaza with an iron fist for the past decade.

    Faqha, 38, was killed in the garage of his apartment building in March after dropping off his family. Hamas said the killer used a weapon with a silencer, allowing him to escape undetected.

    Faqha had been in charge of forming cells for Hamas’s military wing the Izz ad-Din al-Qassam Brigades in the West Bank — overseeing, from Gaza, efforts to carry out terror attacks against Israeli targets from the West Bank.

    He had spent years in an Israeli jail for terrorist activities including orchestrating a 2002 suicide bombing in which 9 Israelis were killed, before being released to Gaza as part of the 2011 Shalit prisoner exchange deal.

    Hamas accused Israel of killing Faqha through collaborators and launched a manhunt.

    Earlier this month, the group announced it arrested 45 alleged collaborators with Israel, including three purportedly involved in killing Faqha.

    Say what!!!
    Isn’t Facebook supposed to be filtering content?

      This is what terrorists get for being involved with a terrorist organization. They are killed off without a right to trial. These members may have been innocent but when revenge is sought, they are as vulnerable as the next in Manchester. It’s good to relay this aspect to muslims and more aspiring terrorists. Instead of dhimmitude to avoid death, which they cannot escape due to the arbitrary nature of terrorist leaders, they should just quit and find for themselves a better life. Once they seek a better choice, everything with God’s help falls into place with hard work.

      Incidentally, Gov. Rauner (R) is collaborating with the IL legislature and passing a “secret” bill that will make IL a sanctuary state. He has business connections with Rahm Emanuel. Businesses and Illinoisans are already fleeing this state due to its tax policies. Rauner is a republican in name only. He and his family have made major donations to leftists causes in the past. From the Daily Caller:

      ‘Secret’ Sanctuary State Bill Set To Pass Illinois Legislature
      WILLIAM J. KELLY
      Host, Citizen Kelly Show
      3:46 PM 05/25/2017

      [snip]
      In response to President Trump, a secret sanctuary state act has just passed the Illinois senate and now it’s being fast-tracked in the state house. The bill cleared a state house committee Wednesday, inching it closer to Gov. Rauner’s desk. Not that a single Illinois voter knows about it – other than non-citizen “voters” being organized by the Illinois Coalition for Immigrant and Refugee Rights (ICIRR) to lobby for its passage.

      Illinois politicians have devised a legislative euphemism, the “Illinois Trust Act,” to keep the bill hush-hush. In fact, ICIRR organizers say they intentionally avoided the word, “sanctuary.” Perhaps Springfield pols fear the wrath of downstate voters who supported Donald Trump by 79% margins in blue state Illinois; if voters actually knew what was in the bill, there would be political hell to pay.

        FTA: Pelosi Complains Trump’s Trip ‘Wasn’t Even Alphabetical’

        On Thursday, House Minority Leader Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) questioned President Donald Trump’s failure to visit countries in alphabetical order.

        Asked at a press conference to comment on Trump’s trip abroad, Pelosi expressed concern that Trump didn’t start with Canada (with the letter “C”) like previous presidents:

        “I thought it was unusual for the President of the United States to go to Saudi Arabia first. Saudi Arabia?” Pelosi said.

        “It wasn’t even alphabetical. I mean, Saudi Arabia.”

        “Now, notice the previous five presidents….four of them went to Canada first. And, one of them went to Mexico; George W. Bush went to Mexico first. What was the decision-making process to go to Saudi Arabia first? That is the question I have.”

    It turns out that my daughter was diagnosed with Hodgkin’s Lymphoma just a week before she discovered she was pregnant. She decided that other than her husband, she would not tell anyone and would put off any treatment until after the birth. She told us just two days ago. On Friday she starts chemo.
