Ron Paul ends CNN interview about his controversial newsletters

Video here:

Here’s a video of Ron Paul promoting the newsletters in 1995.

The conservative Weekly Standard has more about the Ron Paul newsletters.

I have to be diplomatic about this and not comment, but I think that this revelation is good for the Republican party. I recommend that Ron Paul voters look into backing Michele Bachmann, which gets you all of the conservatism, but without the conspiracy-theory baggage. If electability is a concern, then we should be looking to Newt Gingrich.

Canadian federal government defunds anti-Israel organizations

Stephen Harper: not a primping peacock bitterly clinging to his teleprompter

Story from the National Post. (H/T Blazing Cat Fur)

Excerpt:

Since last fall, the federal Conservative government has been withdrawing taxpayer funding from non-governmental organizations (NGOs) that use their grants to take sides against Israel in the Middle East conflict. Now comes word that last week, Ottawa told the United Nations it would no longer fund the world body’s Palestinian refugee agency. From now on, Canadian aid to Palestinians will be directed to specific projects. We will no longer give lump-sum aid to the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East (UNWRA), since most of that money simply goes straight into the Palestinian Authority’s (PA) general treasury, where it might be used for humanitarian projects or might be used to arm and train terrorists.

This is a bold move for Ottawa, which is the first Western government to cut off funding for UNWRA.

Although UNWRA has long been a biased player in the Arab-Israeli conflict, it is seldom criticized for its incitement of anti-Israeli hatred and violence by Palestinians. It has funded textbooks that deny the right of Israel to exist and paid teachers who call on Palestinian children to push the Jewish state into the sea. It harbours radical Islamists and anti-Semites on its payroll and was even caught in 2004 using its own ambulances to ferry terrorists away from Israeli sites they had just attacked.

[…]Ottawa also announced it would defund Alternatives, a Montreal NGO that two summers ago organized an education camp in Quebec, welcoming “500 motivated militants” from Lebanon, Iraq, “Palestine” and Venezuela.

International Development Minister Bev Oda withdrew $7-million in tax dollars, too, from KAIROS, an “ecumenical partnership” that had adopted a vehemently anti-Israel policy and been at the forefront of boycotts against the importation of Israeli goods and visits by Israeli professors.

Now there is some real leadership on foreign policy, from prime minister Stephen Harper.

MUST-SEE: Michael Coren blasts moral equivalence in a debate against leftists

MUST-SEE Video from the Michael Coren TV show. (H/T Blazing Cat Fur, Vlad Tepes)

Topic: Is there such a thing as Islamic fundamentalism? Is it a concern?

Michael Coren’s opponents say there is no threat of Islamic violence:

Well, what about this violence?

This CNN report documents Muslim terrorists bombing churches in Iraq. (H/T Vlad Tepes)

Excerpt:

At least four people were killed and 32 wounded as six Baghdad-area churches were bombed within 24 hours, officials told CNN.

The first bombing took place Saturday night at St. Joseph’s church in western Baghdad, according to an Interior Ministry official. Two bombs placed inside the church exploded at about 10 p.m. No one was in the church at the time of the attack.

Sunday afternoon, three bombs exploded outside churches, wounding eight civilians, the official said. The bombs detonated within a 15-minute span, between 4:30 and 4:45 p.m. Two of the churches are in central Baghdad’s al-Karrada district, and the third is in al-Ghadeer in eastern Baghdad.

Sunday evening, a car bomb exploded outside a church on Palestine Street in eastern Baghdad just after 7 p.m., the official said. Four people died, and 21 were wounded.

If the secular left and the radical Islamists want to talk about “fundamentalism”, then might I suggest that they begin with the events of the day, rather than by desperately grasping at examples of “Christian fundamentalism” that, on closer inspection, have nothing to do with Christianity. Christians are commanded love their enemies and do not murder them. A fundamentalist Christian obeys those commandments.

UPDATE: Jihad Watch reports that a Christian leader has been assassinated in Iraq, in front of his own daughter.
