"The Fiqh Council of North America – a body of Islamic scholars that includes some from Michigan – issued a fatwa this week that says going through the airport scanners would violate Islamic rules on modesty.
“It is a violation of clear Islamic teachings that men or women be seen naked by other men and women,” reads the fatwa issued Tuesday. “Islam highly emphasizes haya (modesty) and considers it part of faith. The Quran has commanded the believers, both men and women, to cover their private parts.”
Muslim groups say the scanners go against their religion."
Just as well.....at least airborne infidels won't have to worry about anymore Muslim crotch-bombers.
It sounds like Former President Clinton has had two stents put into his coronary arteries which are an inflateable mesh tubes that expand the arteries enabling better blood flow:
If he was feeling a gut ache before hand, one of the stented arteries was probably the posterior descending which runs down the back of the heart. IF he was feeling "sick" for several days, he probably had a heart attack before he went into the hospital.
The authorities then activated the breach alarm, causing metal gates concealed in the ceiling to snap down, and blocked 27-year-old Policherla’s access to the boarding area. He was tasered by an FBI agent, wrestled down and handcuffed. Panicked passengers fled the terminal and flights were delayed for hours as the drama unfolded.
Terrorists regularly test US airport security procedures, say intelligence experts, either directly by seeing how security personnel react to a given situation or indirectly by gathering reports of security breaches."
WHY do we need ANOTHER JOBS BILL courtesy of the U.S. TAXPAYERS?
"Obama has repeatedly said he sees the stimulus as a means of “saving or creating 3 million jobs.”Even on Jan. 7, at a press conference naming Nancy Killefer the Treasury Department’s first “chief performance officer,” a position created to track government spending, he told reporters the stimulus, or “economic recovery and reinvestment plan,” would require “dramatic investments to revive our flagging economy – save or create 3 million new jobs, mostly in the private sector.”
What happened to the TRILLIONS in Obama's STIMULUS BILL that were supposed to create MILLIONS OF JOBS?
"Over the past year, Washington has replaced private irresponsibility with public irresponsibility," she said. The country, she said, needs health reform "not backroom deals." She suggested measures like allowing insurance purchases across state lines and tort reform.
Also, she said the country needs to go after an "all-of-the-above-approach to energy." She said increased drilling for oil must be pursued. "Drill here and drill now, and tap our own plentiful energy supplies," she said.
The Obama administration, she said, has lost its way on foreign policy. She said people wonder if the United States is still a "beacon of hope" for freedom. "We need a foreign policy that distinguishes America's friends from her enemies and recognizes the true nature of these threats that we are facing," Palin said."
If these are the words of an "empty vessel," Chris Matthews is an idiot.
Matthews and the Obama administration are out of touch with us ordinary Americans.
Barry is the largest "balloon head" ever in politics.....talk about OVER INFLATION....of his head and the government!
"Two more churches erupted in flames near Tyler, Texas, on Monday night, bringing to at least eight the number of east Texas churches hit by apparent arsonists since this year....Tom Crowley, special agent with Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms National Response Team, says his group is "very active in the area" and are investigating reports of several vehicles seen near churches at all hours in the area.
The two fires Monday night erupted within three miles of each other in Smith County and about an hour apart, the Tyler newspaper reports.
County authorities said fire was already coming out the roof of Clear Springs Missionary Baptist Church when firefighters arrived. The spokesperson said it was evident that the back door had been broken into.
Pastor Carl Samples of Dover Baptist Church says he "can't comprehend how anyone would do the Lord's house this way," the Associated Press reports."
Arson attacks on these churches were intentionally set, likely by the same person or group, federal authorities said Tuesday.
