The Presbyterian Church USA hasn't given up its romance with the Hezbollah. Solomonia reports:

Despite backing off its previous anti-Israel and divestment positions, the Presbyterian News Service of the PC(USA) has given space to Rev. Nuhad Tomeh, "PC(USA) regional liaison for Syria, Lebanon, Iraq and the gulf," but otherwise known as Hizballah's "fixer" for travelling Christians. (See: Fallout for the PC(USA) and Criticism of Church Behavior Equals Attacking the Body of Christ?) Tomeh is the man who has arranged for traveling Presbyterian groups to have sympathetic meetings with Hizballah, and his writing shows it. This piece is about as pure a demonstration of straight propaganda as you're likely to find.

Solomonia quotes from this PCUSA Press Release:

BEIRUT, Aug. 21 ó Yesterday, being a Sunday ó the day of the Lord, my colleague the Rev. Adeeb Awad, secretary of the Ecclesial and Spiritual Affairs Department in the Presbyterian Synod of Syria and Lebanon, and I traveled all the way south from Beirut to the border with Palestine...

Of course, Lebanon doesn't have any border with Palestine. It would not have a border with Palestine if there were a Palestinian state in the West Bank. PC (USA) has a problem with geography or morality. Which is it?

Tomeh's piece recounts the war damage (including "62" casualties in Qana - there were 28) and asks "why," "why,".

Hizbollah is why of course, but Solomonia tells us, Tomeh never once mentions Hezbollah in the whole report.

"Islam: What the West Needs to Know" is an excellent documentary The film had an extremely limited release a few months ago in three cities, New York, Chicago and Los Angeles but is now available on Amazon.com or directly from the film makers at
It consists of interviews of a number of former Muslims who disavowed Islam after being indoctrinated by radical clerics and even associating with terrorist groups. They each in their own way discovered that "radical" Islam isn't as "radical" or out of mainstream Muslim thought as they would like the world to believe.
From the beginning, Mohammed was a war lord and Islamists still are bound by his original war-like tenets:
1. "Convert" all faiths and peoples of the world to a very conservative version of Islam.
2. If unsuccessful in forcing a "conversion" either kills the infidel or...
3. Enslave, subjugate or heavily tax the people or nations who decline this ďinvitationĒ to convert and insist on maintaining their religion.
These primary goals have never been changed, modified or disavowed and there is little evidence that "mainstream" even want to change the underlying philosophy of their "religion". Various Islamic groups only differ in the timing of this world wide "conversion" process.
The "radical" elements, including the terrorists, are in a war to enforce Islamic principals today in our time whereas the more conservative Muslims think that the worldwide Islamic "take over" is in the future.
The "terrorists" are merely the courageous Muslims who are truly living their "religion" of intolerance and forced conversion and are secretly admired and supported by the less radical Muslim peoples... they are all of one mind in this quest for world domination.
This makes all the negotiations, treaties, political posturing and calls for "peace" futile efforts since the basics of the "religion" call for this worldwide jihad. When the Muslim armies were defeated and turned back at Vienna centuries ago on 9/11, they only made truces and retreated in order to rebuild and rearm to enable them to attack again when conditions were more favorable. The radical elements of Islam are operating on this same principle centuries laterÖ they think the time is now.
Unless our leaders wake up to these non-politically-correct realities, we will always be at war with Islam. Israel and their allies (primarily the US) are in the unfortunate position of being the "catalyst" for this jihad. The hatred for the Jews dates back to the beginning of time because they are God's chosen people... making them a target of hatred and violence since the beginning of recorded history. Israel is now being made the target of a worldwide campaign of disinformation and has been unjustly blamed for the present unrest around the world.
This is merely a diversion in an attempt to disguise the true goals of Islam - world-wide domination. They dream of a universal return to a very primitive, suppressive culture where women have no rights at all and everyone else is dominated by "Taliban-like" primitives.
If Islam ever succeeds in its un-ending quest, we will all be forced to return to the "stone age". The rest of the world should wake up and realistically confront the reality of the Islamic quest. At least the rest of the world would not be fighting, confronting and negotiating from a position of ignorance and disinformation.
The film drives home these facts in a stark, forceful manner and every thinking person should see this movie, research its premise for themselves. The present debates over the causes and solutions for terrorism is oblique to these facts and therefore misses the point and the present attempts at diplomacy, treaties, cease-fires and compromise are doomed to failure.
