Imam Pushing to Remove References to Islam in 9/11 Museum's Al-Qaida Film Slurs Jews - Pamela Geller, Atlas Shrugs | ''SNIPPITS'' | Scoop.it
Once again we see the true evil behind Islamic supremacists who relentlessly pursue jihad and sharia in this country. What is most disturbing is that these imams, religious leaders, and Muslim Brotherhood group leaders are in positions of influence. Their deception (taqiya) is sophisticated. Their “interfaith” rhetoric is distinctively similar, but so is their motive, …

Prime Minister David Cameron's “fruitcakes, loonies and closet racists” -- Brits Move Right and U.K. Independence Party Has To Be Taken Seriously

Prime Minister David Cameron's “fruitcakes, loonies and closet racists” -- Brits Move Right and U.K. Independence Party Has To Be Taken Seriously | ''SNIPPITS'' | Scoop.it

By Stephen Castle The New York Times GATESHEAD, England — Before winning power, Prime Minister David Cameron once called them “fruitcakes, loonies and closet racists,” and a cabinet minister, Kenneth Clarke, dismissed them last year as “clowns.” But the U.K. Independence Party is showing that it cannot be laughed off.

Polls suggest that the party, which emerged from the right-wing fringes of British politics to call for sharp limits on immigration and for exiting the European Union, will perform strongly in the European Parliament elections that start on May 22. It appears poised to outpoll Mr. Cameron’s Conservative Party, and it may even vie with the Labour Party for first place in Britain.

The Country That Produced The King James Bible To Remove It From Courtrooms

The Country That Produced The King James Bible To Remove It From Courtrooms | ''SNIPPITS'' | Scoop.it

Defendants and witnesses in British courts will no longer swear on the Bible to tell the truth under controversial plans being considered by a powerful body of judges.

 

Under Mr Abrahams’ proposal,  the holy books would be removed and the oath would read: ‘I promise very sincerely to tell the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth and I understand that if I fail to do so I will be committing an offence for which I will be punished and may be sent to prison.’

 

The plan will be debated at the agm of the Magistrates’ Association, representing 23,000 lay judges, in Cardiff on October 19. A MoJ spokesman said: ‘We have no plans to change the arrangements for swearing an oath or making an affirmation in court, which have worked well for many years and still do.’
