This issue looks at the Palestinian bid for statehood, NASA’s feeble attempt to disprove the Bible, the Islam-Terrorism connection, the UN’s latest gift to America, and more.

Palestinians Submit UN Statehood Resolution, but Don’t Seek Quick Vote
Timesofisrael.com reports: The Palestinians submitted a draft United Nations Security Council resolution Thursday that requested a 12-month deadline to reach a peace deal with Israel and designated the end of 2017 as the final date for completing an Israeli withdrawal from the West Bank and East Jerusalem.

News from The Israel Project
Thousands of years of religious history have been wiped out by radical Islamic terrorists in the Middle East.
* The tombs of biblical prophets Jonah and Daniel leveled by explosives;
* More than 40 churches burned to the ground in Egypt;
* A 2,000 year-old synagogue known as home to the prophet Elijah reduced to rubble;
* A 1,300 year-old church in Iraq damaged beyond repair.
This is just a sample of the devastation facing religious minorities in the Middle East. Yet rather than act on these horrible atrocities, the United Nations seems more concerned with demonizing Israel, the one place in the Middle East where minorities enjoy full freedom and equal rights.
Obama Orchestrating Regime Change in Israel
Patriotupdate.com reports: Aaron Klein wrote in the Jerusalem Post:
The White House has singled out Netanyahu as standing in the way of Obama’s utopian vision for a new Middle East and Persian Gulf. What better way to bypass this obstacle than aiding in Netanyahu’s removal from office? Last week, Netanyahu’s fragile coalition finally fractured, with both Finance Minister Yair Lapid and Justice Minister Tzipi Livni, dismissed, and Netanyahu’s dissolving of the Knesset (Israeli parliament) with new elections to be scheduled. This will be Netanyahu’s greatest internal challenge, and Klein contents that it was in no small part brought about by the Obama administration’s meddling in Israeli politics. Read more.

Mars Farts. Therefore, the Bible Is Not True – NASA
Teapartyeconomist.com reports: Decade after decade, the U.S. government spends money on sending modules to Mars. These modules have the following functions: (1) Justify NASA’s existence to the public, (2) build up the résumés of unknown academic scientists, (3) create profits for suppliers – the military-Martian complex. But the primary task is to call into question Genesis 1, which places the creation of life on earth (day 3) ahead of the creation of the sun, moon, and stars – and presumably also Mars (day 4). If the scientists can find life on Mars, this will call into question the uniqueness of life on earth, and therefore call into question the Bible’s message of creation, fall, redemption, and final judgment. If there is life on Mars, then life is just one of those things, just one of those crazy things. Read more.
Terror and Islam: Yes, There’s a Link
Politicaloutcast.com reports: Celebrities and so-called comedians get away with saying things about Christianity that are completely baseless. There are thousands of corners of the Internet dedicated to the bashing of Christianity. And yet when, repeatedly, adherents of another particular religion kill people or when a “lone wolf” self-described cleric of that particular religion takes a store full of hostages, putting a sign proclaiming a religious view in the window of the store where he is committing his crimes, we are called haters if we mention a causal link between the religion and its adherents’ actions, and we are assured that those terrorists are not in any way connected to that religion.

The Lie Called Islamophobia
Lastresistance.com reports: Islamophobia was invented to silence you. “A lie gets halfway around the world before the truth has a chance to get its pants on.” – Winston Churchill
Rarely is a statement more apropos than the above quote by Winston Churchill, given the circumstances in which we find ourselves at this exact moment. Just several days ago, a religious extremist entered a cafe in Sydney, Australia, taking over a dozen hostages. 16 hours later, shots were fired, police stormed the building, and three people died.

Congress Cuts Military Pay, Opens Entitlements for Illegals!
Daily Sanity reports: John Boehner and the rest of the GOP RINO establishment didn’t have enough Conservative votes to pass their $1.1 TRILLION budget. That’s because while these so-called “Republicans” criticized Obama’s amnesty in public, their budget completely funded it. More than 60 Republicans voted against the spending bill, forcing Boehner to get approximately 50 Democrats to vote for it. GOP leaders blocked any anti-amnesty amendments and allowed the bill to proceed without any mention of Obama’s amnesty. That means that newly “legalized” illegal aliens will begin receiving working papers and become eligible for Social Security and Medicare as soon as they come of age. Meanwhile, Congress also passed the 2015 National Defense Authorization Act and guess what: they actually went through with cutting pay for our soldiers…
U.N. Sending Thousands of Muslims to America
Teaparty.org reports: The federal government is preparing for another “surge” in refugees and this time they won’t be coming illegally from Central America. The U.S. State Department announced this week that the first major contingent of Syrian refugees, 9,000 of them, have been hand-selected by the United Nations for resettlement into communities across the United States.
