Arizona fleas test positive for plague

Posted: Sep 26, 2014 1:57 AM GDTUpdated: Sep 26, 2014 5:55 AM GDT
FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. -It's a word you don't hear too often around Arizona: plague.  But some fleas in northern Arizona have tested positive for plague and that has people on high alert.

Plague can be deadly to people and animals, but if found early on, it's very treatable with antibiotics.  That being said, residents of Coconino County should be looking out for fleas.

Fleas with plague were discovered in prairie dog burrows northeast of Flagstaff in the Doney Park area.

"It was actually during routine surveillance.. they found fleas, then gave the fleas to the lab at NAU," said Marlene Gaither of the Public Health Services District in Coconino County.

In 2011, a cat got plague.  Gaither says dogs often show no symptoms, but cats will become very ill from the disease.  Pet owners should de-flea their pets and check for the pests.

The fleas that tested positive for plague were found in Doney Park, but anyone above 4,500 feet should take precautions.
"The incubation period from the time the flea bites you to symptoms would be one to seven days.  The symptoms are sudden fever, like 104° or higher, body aches.. really bad chills and so you would want to get to a doctor," said Gaither.
If you plan to go camping in the county, use bug repellant.  Hunters should wear gloves when cleaning and skinning wild animals to avoid exposure.

The Hitlerian New World Order

It is hard to imagine a mindset that could plan the extermination of billions of people. Unfortunately, this failure of imagination provides such psychopaths with the freedom to execute their evil desire.
They want you dead, and they don’t want you to wake up to their plans until it’s too late for you. They want you as quiet and passive as possible, as you wait in line for your turn in the gas chamber.
And yes, it really is a Hitlerian future that awaits us. They really do see themselves as the master race, and we are the subhuman, useless eaters – consuming what they think of as rightfully theirs.

The Hitlerian New World Order

Adolf Hitler’s Nazi Germany was the New World Order’s first big attempt at a takeover, but it failed because they didn’t have the right tools. And, the sheep that they were trying to kill had become too aware, too fast. The sheep fought back, and it was too much for the New World Order to handle.
So, the New World Order is trying again, but this time with better, more powerful tools – against sleepier, less aware sheep.

The Globalist Playbook

Dave Hodges wrote an excellent article, last Thursday, that lays out the tools that the New World Order elites plan to use, as well as the hands that wield these tools:
Zbigniew Brzezinski is the most visible and vocal of the hands that have designed and produced the machinery of death that they plan to use against us. The other is Henry Kissinger. Both men have been acting on behalf of the New World Order for decades, and it appears that their plans are being set in motion.
What are these plans?



Genocide, of course. But, it will be a process of genocide that will bring them more and more power, as more and more of us die. It will be a slow enough process so that those who are being targeted will throw themselves at the mercy of the ones that are killing them. It is an ages-old tactic with a proven record of success. And, they are using it here.

Pandemic Disease

Consider their use of pa"ndemic disease as an example. We have had two genetically different strains of Ebola break out at the same time in Africa, yet most of us haven’t stopped to think about how statistically unnatural that is. Nor have we thought to ask why we are being lied to about the transmission of Ebola and its lethality.
Of course, once it arrives on America’s shores – assuming that it hasn’t already immigrated there – the dangers will be hyped, as well as the solution.
Their solution.
Dave’s article highlights the training and preparations made by FEMA for such an event, and that should give you a very, very clear idea of the future. And no, you do NOT want those vaccines and those FEMA camps.
And, if Ebola doesn’t work as advertised, others will surely do the trick. And, we’ve seen some interesting diseases pop up recently that might work for the NWO.
You’d do anything, to save your child, right?
Right. Enough said.


Localized EMP – Taiwan Style

And, let’s not forget an EMP attack, or some other form of a take-down of the US power grid. Dave Hodges postulated that a limited EMP attack might work to neutralize the US, while preserving the infrastructure that they want.
Those of us living in Taiwan are quite aware of how China might assist the New World Order in their plans. We’ve known for a long time that China has experimented with the idea of limiting the area of effect of an EMP weapon, by controlling the altitude of where that weapon goes off.
A localized EMP strike has long been a part of Chinese plans for an eventual military invasion of Taiwan. It would completely eliminate the technical infrastructure and leave Taiwan defenseless to invasion. In fact, Taiwan would be in so much trouble, that they would beg for China to invade.
The problem for the Chinese, in using such an EMP weapon, is that China herself would be severely damaged if the device went off too high above the Earth. It’s a tricky problem that we believe that the Chinese have successfully figured out, which may be why Taiwan has been surrendering to China over the past decade.
A localized EMP strike on the ‘fly-over’ states, or some other form of destruction of the power supply in those areas, would work nicely for the New World Order. Middle America has always been the biggest obstacle to New World Order efforts, so taking them out would be the first order of business for them. The sheeple on the East and West coasts have been drinking their kool-aid for some time now, and would be no threat to them.

Dollar Death

Then, a moment will come when the US dollar needs to die the death that the New World Order has prepared for it. That death isn’t far away, and a lot more than the US financial system will go along with it.
Across the globe, lots and lots of people will die, as economies cease to function. Farmers won’t have the means to buy their seed, fuel their tractors, fertilize their fields or water their crops. Food distribution will fail, and vital services will collapse.
What would be a mechanism for such a collapse?
Well, you need only look at the drills that they have been announcing and participating in. Dave talks about a couple, and you’ve no doubt heard of how vulnerable Chase, Bank of America, Citi, HSBC and others are to cyber attack.
And yes, they ARE vulnerable to cyber attack, but the banks won’t be taken down until the NWO has a global currency replacement ready to be implemented. Furthermore, they’re getting ready to beta-test their solutions in places like Israel and Ecuador. In fact, we’ve been playing around with one of their prototypes for some time – Bitcoin.

Going To War

Of course, pandemic disease and financial collapse still won’t be enough, which is why they will take us to war. And, I find it interesting that we are entering a period of time, in which the global war cycle and internal conflict cycle coincide.
Martin Armstrong has spoken often about war cycles, and the fact that we have entered two of them at the same time should be deeply unsettling for all of us. And, you can bet that the NWO elites will use global and local conflicts to bring us ever deeper under their control – and kill off as much of the world’s population as possible.

But… It’s Just Too Hard To Believe

Please remember that the New World Order really does believe in the need to bring Earth’s human population down to under one billion people. And, this belief has infected the elites of academia and scientific research. And yes, they really do believe that the vast majority of humanity must be killed off, if we are to have the kind of future that they want.
Unfortunately, most people would take what I’ve written so far, to be the product of an over-heated imagination. It is beyond the capacity for most people to imagine such evil. And, what you cannot imagine, you probably cannot see.

My Own Horrified Inability To See

A little less than ten years ago, a Palestinian terrorist blew up a packed bus just down the street from my apartment. It wasn’t the first time that something like that had happened near me, but it was the first time that I had grimly decided to go and take pictures.
It was only years later, when I was showing someone those pictures, that I saw the dead bodies in the bus. My mind had been unable to see the body parts visible within the exploded remains of Egged bus 32a. And, it was a powerful example of how the mind can refuse to see reality – even if it is lying in plain sight.

Consequences Cannot Be Ignored

Unfortunately, this reality of a planned genocide is just such an example of the unimaginable that cannot be seen – because it is too awful to think about – even though it is visible for all to see. We DO see it, but have chosen to respond to that sight by indulging ourselves in lies and self-deceit, hoping that the force of our desire to wish away an awful future will be powerful enough to send it winging away, to never-never-land.
But, that’s not how reality works.
We can ignore the truth, but we cannot ignore the consequences of ignoring the truth.
I truly hope that you’ll be ready for this
(That’s a link. There’s not much time left.)
A prudent man foreseeth the evil, and hideth himself: but the simple pass on, and are punished. – Proverbs 22:3

The Number Of Volcanic Eruptions Is Increasing And That Could Lead To An Extremely Cold Winter
September 24, 2014 | 
Share this article

The number of volcanoes that are erupting continues to rise, and scientists cannot seem to explain why this is happening. In 2013, we witnessed the most volcanic eruptions worldwide that we have ever seen in a single year, and this increased activity has carried over into 2014.

In recent months, we have seen major volcanoes roar to life in Russia, Peru, Hawaii, Reunion Island, Indonesia, and all over Alaska. It is highly unusual for so many volcanoes to all be erupting at the same time. According to Volcano Discovery, a whopping 34 volcanoes are erupting around the globe right now.

This is sending a massive amount of dust and ash into the upper atmosphere, and it may explain why many parts of the planet are experiencing strangely cold weather at the moment. If this trend continues, we could potentially be facing years of crop failures and widespread famines all over the world.

And what we have witnessed already may just be the beginning. There are several more very large volcanoes around the globe that scientists are extremely concerned about right now.

For example, just check out what is going on in the Philippines...

Mayon Volcano in the province of Albay was placed on "Alert Level 3" on Monday evening, September 15, after showing signs of "relatively high unrest," the Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology (PHIVOLCS) said.

In a bulletin issued at 10:00 pm, PHIVOLCS observed 39 rockfall events from 5:00 am to 8:00 pm on September 15, symptoms of the build-up of magma at the summit dome. At least 32 low frequency volcanic earthquakes were also recorded, indicating magma intrusion or volcanic gas activity.

PHIVOLCS-DOST raised the alert status of Mayon Volcano from Alert Level 2 to Alert Level 3 which is equivalent to a "Critical Alert" in the agency's 5-level alert system. This means that the volcano is exhibiting relatively high unrest, magma is at the crater, and that an eruption is possible within weeks.
But of even greater concern is Bardarbunga. It is the largest volcano system in Iceland, and a major eruption could potentially be absolutely catastrophic...

This time the threat of an eruption – potentially even more powerful than the one in 2010 – is posed by Bardarbunga, the biggest of Iceland's 30 or so volcanic systems. Located roughly at the country's centre, the volcano's 10-kilometre caldera lies several hundred metres beneath Vatnajokull, Europe's largest glacier by volume.

Scientists are taking the latest rumblings seriously: roughly 8000 years ago, after all, the volcanic leviathan let rip with the largest eruption of the past 10,000 years.

"It is very difficult to predict exactly what will happen with an eruption," says Monash University vulcanologist Professor Ray Cas, who is president of the International Association for Volcanology and Chemistry of the Earth.
Scientists tell us that over the last 10,000 years Bardarbunga has produced "more lava than any other volcano on the planet."

If we witness a full scale eruption at Bardarbunga, the cancellation of a few thousand flights may be the smallest of our concerns.

The truth is that we might be looking at the coldest winter that any of us have ever seen in the northern hemisphere.

But don't just take my word for it. The following is from a British newspaper article entitled "Icelandic volcano could trigger Britain's coldest winter EVER this year"...

Depending on the force of the explosion, minute particles thrust beyond the earth’s atmosphere can trigger DECADES of chaotic weather patterns.

Tiny pieces of debris act as billions of shields reflecting the sun’s light away from earth meaning winter temperatures could plunge LOWER THAN EVER before while summer will be devoid of sunshine.

The first effect could be a bitterly cold winter to arrive in weeks with thermometers plunging into minus figures and not rising long before next summer.
If this did happen, there is nothing that we could do to change it.

We would just have to deal with it.

This is a kind of "climate change" that everyone can agree on. It is well known that volcanic eruptions can substantially lower global temperatures. In fact, some global warming theorists are already blaming increased volcanic activity for why temperatures have not been rising in recent years...

“In the last decade, the amount of volcanic aerosol in the stratosphere has increased, so more sunlight is being reflected back into space,” said lead author Benjamin Santer, climate scientist at Laurence Livermore National Laboratory, in a press release. “This has created a natural cooling of the planet and has partly offset the increase in surface and atmospheric temperatures due to human influence.”
But if Bardarbunga fully erupts, we could be looking at something a lot worse than a little "global cooling".

We could potentially be facing winters that never seem to end.

It has happened before in recorded history many times. The following list comes from Wikipedia…

The effects of volcanic eruptions on recent winters are modest in scale, but historically have been significant.

Most recently, the 1991 explosion of Mount Pinatubo, a stratovolcano in the Philippines, cooled global temperatures for about 2–3 years.

In 1883, the explosion of Krakatoa (Krakatau) created volcanic winter-like conditions. The four years following the explosion were unusually cold, and the winter of 1887-1888 included powerful blizzards. Record snowfalls were recorded worldwide.

The 1815 eruption of Mount Tambora, a stratovolcano in Indonesia, occasioned mid-summer frosts in New York State and June snowfalls in New England and Newfoundland and Labrador in what came to be known as the “Year Without a Summer” of 1816.

A paper written by Benjamin Franklin in 1783 blamed the unusually cool summer of 1783 on volcanic dust coming from Iceland, where the eruption of Laki volcano had released enormous amounts of sulfur dioxide, resulting in the death of much of the island’s livestock and a catastrophic famine which killed a quarter of the Icelandic population. Northern hemisphere temperatures dropped by about 1 °C in the year following the Laki eruption.

In 1600, the Huaynaputina in Peru erupted. Tree ring studies show that 1601 was cold. Russia had its worst famine in 1601-1603. From 1600 to 1602, Switzerland, Latvia and Estonia had exceptionally cold winters. The wine harvest was late in 1601 in France, and in Peru and Germany, wine production collapsed. Peach trees bloomed late in China, and Lake Suwa in Japan froze early.
The possibility of volcanic eruptions substantially cooling our weather is the biggest "climate threat" that we are facing by far.

Without warm summers and plenty of sunshine, our crops will not succeed.

And global food supplies are already stretched to the limit. Just this week we learned that one out of every nine people in the world does not have enough food to eat.

What would happen if global food production was cut by 10 or 20 percent for a few years?

So keep an eye on Bardarbunga and the other major volcanoes around the planet that are rumbling right now.

They may just play a major role in our immediate future.

Vein Biometrics To Combat Bank Fraud
September 24, 2014 | 
Share this article

Are you really who you say you are, and are you authorized to be making this transaction? To answer these questions, organizations looking to manage fraud and identity theft have long relied on identification documents that have been highly vulnerable to tampering and impersonation attempts. PINS and passwords too can easily be stolen or compromised when customers are careless or vulnerable. 
No wonder then, that identification methods relying on photo and signature comparisons are fast giving way to biometric options that are virtually foolproof in terms of preventing identity theft. Your fingers, veins, voice, eyes and facial features are becoming some of latest ways in which banks and other institutions are starting to positively identify its customers.

In one such recent development, Reuters.com recently reported that a leading British Bank, Barclays is launching a finger scanner for corporate clients and will roll out voice recognition for millions of retail clients next year as it steps up use of biometric recognition technology to combat banking fraud. The bank launched voice recognition biometrics for private banking clients last year, and has now teamed up with Japanese technology firm Hitachi to develop a biometric reader that scans a finger and identifies unique vein patterns to access accounts, instead of using a password or PIN.

Barclays is reportedly the first bank globally to use it for significant account transactions, and intends to provide safer verification systems that cut fraud risks from customers sharing or choosing obvious passwords, or forgetting PINs. And the motivation for these initiatives is quite compelling in the face of increasing fraudster sophistication: Britain's private companies reportedly lost 21 billion pounds ($34.5 billion) from fraud in 2012 and financial firms suffered 5.4 billion pounds of that, according to National Fraud Authority estimates.

Barclays further stated that its vein authentication technology will be rolled out to corporate customers next year and it expects strong take-up from its 30,000 large corporate clients. Ashok Vaswani, chief executive of Barclay’s personal and corporate banking, was quoted by Reuters to have stated that "Biometrics is the way to go in the future. We have no doubt about that, we are committed to it…you can't let these guys (criminals) create a breach in the dam. You've got to constantly stay ahead of the game."

The finger scanner sits on the customer's desk and plugs into a computer. The vein pattern is matched with one stored on a SIM card, so Barclays does not hold a record. The scanned finger has to be attached to a live human body to work. Other biometric opportunities could include using similar technology on mobile tablets, which is the fastest growing area for European banks, or at ATMs.

Other banks and financial institutions are also likely to follow suit. Royal Bank of Scotland and other UK banks have reportedly suffered serious attacks by hackers in the last two years and are trying to strengthen their defenses in all areas of vulnerability.

A testament to the power and efficacy of vein biometrics can also be seen in its adoption by Robocoin, a company specializing in Bitcoin and cash dispensing kiosks. A recent report published in findbiometrics.com reported that Robocoin ATMs require three factors of authentication – phone, PIN and palm vein – that, once submitted, allow for automated 24 hour service to Bitcoin accounts and cash withdrawal needs. In choosing palm vein authentication, Robocoin has picked a notoriously difficult to spoof biometric modality. Fujitsu’s PalmSecure biometric sensors capture palm vein images using near-infrared light. 
Additionally, because palm vein patterns are subdermal features (like all types of vascular biometrics) forgery is near impossible. The process is contactless, allowing for nuanced deployment – nixing (eliminating) hygiene concerns and germ-averse cultural barriers.

Other non-banking and financial institutions are also increasingly adopting vein biometrics and similar biometric options for positive identification. PatientSecure.com describes itself as “the nation’s most adopted Biometric Patient Identification Management System” and “links the biometric information of the patient to their medical record” in healthcare systems specified. Patient Secure describes why vein biometrics are so effective: “Blood veins are formed during the first eight weeks of gestation in a chaotic manner, influenced by environment in a mother’s womb. This is why vein pattern is unique to each individual, even to twins. Veins grow with a person’s skeleton, and while capillary structures continue to grow and change, vascular patterns are set at birth and do not change over the course of one’s lifetime...An individual’s scanned palm vein data (biometric template) is encrypted for protection and registered along with the other details in his/her profile as a reference for future comparison.”

Where are all these trends leading to? The RightSideNews.com aptly summarizes: “Are you ready to have your veins scanned every time you use your bank account? Are you ready to use a "digital tattoo" or a microchip implant to unlock your telephone? Once upon a time we read about such technologies in science fiction novels, but now they are here. The era of widespread biometric identification and microchip implants is upon us, and it is going to change the way that we live…Proponents of these new technologies say that they will make our private information and our bank accounts much more secure. But there are others that warn that these kinds of "Big Brother technologies" will set the stage for even more government intrusion into our lives. In the wrong hands, such technologies could prove to be an absolute nightmare.”

Computer Models Tell Us That This Ebola Pandemic Could Soon Kill Millions
September 24, 2014 | 
Share this article

We could potentially be on the verge of the greatest health crisis that any of us have ever seen. The number of Ebola cases in Africa has approximately doubled over the past three weeks, and scientific computer models tell us that this Ebola pandemic could ultimately end up killing millions of us - especially if it starts spreading on other continents.

At first, many assumed that this Ebola outbreak would be just like all the others - that it would flare up for a little while and then it would completely fade away. But that has not happened this time. Instead, this epidemic has seemed to pick up momentum with each passing week.

Despite extraordinary precautions, hundreds of health workers have gotten the virus, and the head of the CDC says that the spread of Ebola is "spiraling out of control" and that it is "going to get worse in the very near future." For those that have thought that all of this talk about Ebola was just "fearmongering", it is time for you to wake up.

Right now, the World Health Organization says that we could see the total number of Ebola cases reach 20,000 nine months from now. But computer models created for the National Institutes of Health and the Department of Defense are projecting that Ebola could soon be growing at a rate of 20,000 cases per month...

The Ebola epidemic affecting West Africa is predicted to last a further 12 to 18 months, according to U.S. scientists.

Epidemiologists have been creating computer models of the Ebola epidemic for the National Institutes of Health and the Defense Department.

The model they have created is a far less optimistic estimate than that of the World Health Organization (WHO), which last month said it hoped to contain the outbreak within nine months and 20,000 total cases.

The New York Times reports that various researchers have said the virus could grow at a rate that could be closer to 20,000 per month.

The WHO is sticking to its estimates, a spokesman said Friday.
Other scientists are even more pessimistic.

For example, a model created jointly by a researcher at the University of Tokyo and a researcher at Arizona State University has produced a "worst-case scenario" of 277,124 Ebola cases by the end of this year...

The Eurosurveillance paper, by two researchers from the University of Tokyo and Arizona State University, attempts to derive what the reproductive rate has been in Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone. (Note for actual epidemiology geeks: The calculation is for the effective reproductive number, pegged to a point in time, hence actually Rt.) They come up with an R of at least 1, and in some cases 2; that is, at certain points, sick persons have caused disease in two others.

You can see how that could quickly get out of hand, and in fact, that is what the researchers predict. Here is their stop-you-in-your-tracks assessment:

In a worst-case hypothetical scenario, should the outbreak continue with recent trends, the case burden could gain an additional 77,181 to 277,124 cases by the end of 2014.

That is a jaw-dropping number.
If we do see an explosion like that, how many millions of cases will we see by the time 2015 is through?

A different model has produced an even more jaw-dropping number.

An "econometric simulation model" created by Francis Smart at Michigan State University is predicting that a whopping 1.2 million people will die from Ebola in the next six months...

An econometric simulation model based on the assumption the World Health Organization and others will be unable to control the Ebola outbreak in West Africa predicts 1.2 million people will die from the disease in the next six months.

Six months is the minimum time the WHO projects will be necessary to contain the epidemic.

In his analysis, econometrics research assistant Francis Smart at Michigan State University took seriously the conclusions of Canadian researchers who proved the strain of Ebola in the current West African epidemic could go airborne.

The Ebola virus could be transmitted between humans through breathing, Smart says.

In developing the model, Smart began with WHO’s Aug. 28 statement that the Ebola epidemic in West Africa could afflict more than 20,000 people before it is brought under control.
That has got to be the worst possible number, right?


The other day a prominent German virologist came forward and declared that "it is too late" to stop Ebola and that five million people will die in Sierra Leone and Liberia alone...

A top German virologist has caused shockwaves by asserting that it’s too late to halt the spread of Ebola in Sierra Leone and Liberia and that five million people will die, noting that efforts should now be focused on stopping the transmission of the virus to other countries.

Jonas Schmidt-Chanasit of the Bernhard Nocht Institute for Tropical Medicine in Hamburg told Germany’s Deutsche Welle that hope is all but lost for the inhabitants of Sierra Leone and Liberia and that the virus will only “burn itself out” when it has infected the entire population and killed five million people.

“The right time to get this epidemic under control in these countries has been missed,” said Schmidt-Chanasit. “That time was May and June. “Now it is too late.”
So which of the numbers discussed above are accurate?

Only time will tell.

Meanwhile, the U.S. federal government is feverishly preparing for the worst.

This week we learned that Barack Obama is going to ask Congress for 88 million dollars for the purpose of conducting "a major Ebola offensive" in Africa.

Granted, Obama will ask Congress for money at the drop of a hat these days. He wants 500 million dollars to arm the allies of ISIS and his reckless spending has been one of the primary factors why the U.S. national debt has risen by more than a trillion dollars over the past 12 months.

But it is still noteworthy.

Even more noteworthy is the fact that the U.S. State Department has just ordered 160,000 Hazmat suits...

The U.S. State Department has ordered 160,000 Hazmat suits for Ebola, prompting concerns that the federal government is anticipating the rapid spread of a virus that has already claimed an unprecedented number of lives.

In a press release posted by Market Watch, Lakeland Industries, a manufacturer of industrial protective clothing for first responders, announced that it had signaled its intention “to join the fight against the spread of Ebola” by encouraging other suppliers to meet the huge demand created by the U.S. State Department’s order of 160,000 hazmat suits.

“With the U.S. State Department alone putting out a bid for 160,000 suits, we encourage all protective apparel companies to increase their manufacturing capacity for sealed seam garments so that our industry can do its part in addressing this threat to global health,” states the press release.

The huge bulk order of hazmat suits for Ebola has stoked concerns that the U.S. government expects the virus to continue to ravage countries in west Africa and may also be concerned about an outbreak inside the United States.
You don't order that many Hazmat suits unless you are anticipating an outbreak of apocalyptic proportions.

And the CDC has just issued a six page Ebola checklist to hospitals to help them spot potential Ebola patients in America...

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, warning hospitals and doctors that “now is the time to prepare,” has issued a six-page Ebola “checklist” to help healthcare workers quickly determine if patients are infected.

While the CDC does not believe that there are new cases of Ebola in the United States, the assumption in the checklist is that it is only a matter of time before the virus hits home.
Let us hope and pray that these precautions do not become necessary.

Because if Ebola starts spreading like wildfire in this country, we are going to see pain and suffering beyond anything that most of us have ever imagined.

Just consider what a health worker on the front lines is seeing on a day to day basis...

I wake up each morning – if I have managed to sleep – wondering if this is really happening, or if it is a horror movie. In decades of humanitarian work I have never witnessed such relentless suffering of fellow human beings or felt so completely paralysed and utterly overwhelmed at our inability to provide anything but the most basic, and sometimes less than adequate, care.

I am supervising the suspect tent, which has room for 25 patients who are likely to have Ebola – 80-90% of those we test have the virus. We administer treatment for malaria, start patients on antibiotics, paracetamol, multivitamins, rehydration supplements, food, water and juice while they wait for their results. Sometimes people have arrived too late and die shortly after arriving.

In one afternoon last week I watched five seemingly fit, healthy, young men die. I gave the first a bottle of oral rehydration solution and came back with another for the second. In the half a minute or so in which I had been away the first man died, his bottle of water spilt across the floor. The four others followed in quick succession.
Ebola is truly a terrible, terrible disease.

The moment that cases start popping up in the United States, all of our lives will instantly change.

Why The War Is Far From Over – Half Of Palestinians Support Armed Intifada Against Israel
September 22, 2014 | 
Share this article

A public opinion poll published on Tuesday showed that half of the Palestinian public supports an armed intifada against Israel.

The poll, published by the Nablus-based An-Najah University, included 1,360 Palestinians (860 from the West Bank and 500 from the Gaza Strip) above the age of 18, was conducted during the period from 11-13 September. It has a margin of error of three percent.

The poll showed that 49% of respondents favored an armed intifada against Israel as opposed to 44% who said they were against it.

Still, 56% said they supported an unarmed and non-violent resistance against Israel, while 35% expressed their opposition.

The poll found that 57% of respondents expected the eruption of a third intifada in the West Bank. Only 32% said they did not expect such a thing to happen.

According to the results, more than 70% of the respondents believe there will be another military encounter with Israel in the Gaza Strip. Another 84% said they supported the Palestinian Authority effort to join the International Criminal Court.

The poll also confirmed the results of a previous survey that indicated increased support for Hamas following Operation Protective Edge.

The An-Najah poll showed that if presidential elections were held today, 22% would vote for a Hamas candidate as opposed to 21% who would cast their ballots for a Fatah nominee. More than 17% of respondents said they would not participate in the elections.

The poll also found that Hamas would receive more votes in a parliamentary election - 23% for Hamas as opposed to 21% for Fatah.

Asked about the role of the US in the Middle East peace process, an overwhelming majority of 90% of respondents said they viewed the US as being biased in favor of Israel.

The poll showed that 54% of respondents still supported the two-state solution, while 42% are opposed to a one-state solution.

Chrislam Returns As Catholic Cardinal Embraces Islam
September 22, 2014 | 
Share this article

Catholic Cardinal Theodore McCarrick offered Islamic religious phrases and insisted that Islam shares foundational rules with Christianity, during a Sept. 10 press conference in D.C.

“In the name of God, the Merciful and Compassionate,” McCarrick said as he introduced himself to the audience at a meeting arranged by the Muslim Public Affairs Council. That praise of the Islamic deity is an important phrase in Islam, is found more than 100 times in the Koran, and is akin to the Catholic prayer, ”In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit.”

McCarrick next claimed that “Catholic social teaching is based on the dignity of the human person… [and] as you study the holy Koran, as you study Islam, basically, this is what Muhammad the prophet, peace be upon him, has been teaching.”

McCarrick was 71 when 19 Muslims brought Islam to the public eye by murdering 3,000 Americans on 9/11. He is one of the 213 Cardinals of the Catholic church, but is too old to vote in church debates.

“Either the cardinal has studied the whole thing and does not know what he’s talking about, or he is making a somewhat misleading statement,” said Michael Meunier, head of the U.S. Copts Association. “The practice of the Muslim majority people that adhere to the Koran… have proven that [claim of equivalence] is not correct,” he told The Daily Caller during a Sept. 11 trip to Jordan.

“Has Cardinal McCarrick converted to Islam?” asked a scornful critic, Robert Spencer, the best-selling author of many books on Islam.

“‘Peace be upon him’ is a phrase Muslims utter after they say the name of [their reputed] prophet… [so] probably he is unaware of the unintended Islamic confession of faith he has just made,”said Spencer, who runs the Jihadwatch.org website.

McCarrick is wrong to say “that Islam teaches the dignity of every human person,“ Spencer said. “Actually, it teaches a sharp dichotomy between the Muslims, [who are called] ‘the best of people’ and the unbelievers [are called] ‘the most vile of created beings,’” Spencer told TheDC.

“The Koran also says: ‘Muhammad is the apostle of Allah. Those who follow him are merciful to one another, harsh to the unbelievers,’” Spencer said.

The same warning came from Archbishop Amel Nona, who was head of Chaldean Catholic Archeparch of Mosul in Iraq. In a August comment made to Europeans, he said that “You think all men are equal, but that is not true: Islam does not say that all men are equal [and] your values are not their values.”

“If you do not understand this soon enough, you will become the victims of the [immigrant] enemy you have welcomed in your home,” said Nona, who is now exiled — along with surviving Chaldean Catholics — in the Kurdish city of Erbil.

Islamic societies have routinely persecuted non-Muslims, including Christian Armenians in Turkey and Christian Copts in Egypt, said Taniel Koushakjian, a spokesman for the Armenian Assembly of America

During the First World War, more that 1.5 million Armenians were deliberately killed by Turkey’s Islamic government, he said.

In Egypt, Copts “seem to bear the brunt of the persecution… [which] comes from the religious divide [and] is an interpretation of the theology in which people who are not of the same [Islamic] belief are cast out as infidels, as unrighteous,” he said.

The Islamic Society of North America says Islam “recognize[s] plurality in human societies, including religious plurality.” The section of the Koran that endorses plurality, it is claimed, include verses 10:19, 11:118 and 11.19.

“Mankind was not but one community [united in religion], but [then] they differed. And if not for a word that preceded from your Lord, it would have been judged between them [immediately] concerning that over which they differ,” says verse 10:19, which ISNA says shows Islam’s tolerance for other religions — chiefly, Judaism and Christianity — that supposedly split off from Islam at least 2,000 years ago.

The Koran has some welcoming messages, but they’re from Islam’s early period, Meunier said. “When Islam became strong and had a strong army, the tougher verses came down from heaven — apparently — and according to Islamic teaching, those later verses abrogate the earlier verses [so] moderate Muslims have an uphill battle saying Islam is tolerant.”

“We have to encourage moderate Muslims to present a more moderate version of Islam and the Koran,” but they’re outgunned by Saudi clerics who have used petrodollars to make Islam tougher and less tolerant, he said.

But the Saudi clerics “won’t do it [because] they don’t believe in it,” he added.

For Muslims, the Koran is the unimpeachable transcript of commands from Allah, the single and all-powerful deity. Muslims believe that the Koran was dictated by an angel to Islam’s final prophet, Mohammad, 1,400 years ago. This rigidity sharply constrains Muslims’ use of alternative ideas, including elements of Christianity, or secular ethics and philosophy.

The Koran also include many passage urging the use of violence. “The penalty for those who wage war against Allah and His Messenger and strive upon earth [to cause] corruption is none but that they be killed or crucified or that their hands and feet be cut off from opposite sides or that they be exiled from the land,” says Verse 33 of the Koran’s fifth book.

In contrast, the Christian Bible, including the almost-2,000 year-old New Testament, is based on the statements of witnesses. For example, Matthew the disciple provide the main account of the Beatitudes sermon, which includes the famous lines, “Blessed are the merciful, for they shall be shown mercy. Blessed are the pure in heart, for they will see God. Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called the sons of God.”

The Christians’ reliance on witnesses allowed perpetual debate over the meaning and purpose of words from the twinned deity of Jesus and God. It also spurred a Christian search for evidence of God via the “natural sciences,” which gradually evolved into science. Christianity also endorsed separate roles for church and state, where Islam assumes that states’ laws and personal behavior comply with Koranic rules.

McCarrick, however, blended the two distinct religions in his comments at the press club.

“We are together on this against evil, we are against killing, we are against destruction… God bless you in this work you do,” McCarrick said to the Muslim speakers, which included representatives from one group — the Islamic Society of North America — that was implicated in a conspiracy to smuggle funds to the Hamas terror group that recently launched another bombardment of thousands of rockets at Israeli Jews.

“We believe that Islam is a religion which helps people, not kills them… the Muslim community has always taught this,” McCarrick said.

“I’m privileged to be able to lend my voice to the voice of many of my friends here,” he said about the Sept. 10 meeting, which was designed to help U.S.-based Islamic groups avoid the public disgust with The Islamic State of Iraq and Syria.

Since early this year, the Islamic State group has killed and murdered thousands of Iraqis that don’t accept rule by the brutal Salafi variant of Islam. The victims include Shia Muslims, Christians and adherents of the pre-Christian Yazidi religion. Tens of thousands of non-Muslims have also been driven from their homes and fields.

McCarrick, however, downplayed ISIS’s attack on Christians in Iraq, and expressed more concerns for Muslim victims of ISIS attacks. “The truth of the matter is in these terrible massacres of the Islamic state, most of the victims have been Muslims, most of them have not been Christians,” he told his Sept. 10 audience.

“Many Christians, obviously, have suffered, so I am here to say that we stand with our brothers and sisters in the Muslim community, who here in the United States have been giving leadership in a very strong way,” he declared.

“They are proud to be Americans… they love America,” he said, without retuning to discuss the fate of his fellow Christians under Muslim rule.

Spencer urged McCarrick to challenge his Muslim hosts.

“Cardinal McCarrick, rather than indulge in this fond and ignorant wishful thinking, would have done better to have challenged his Muslim friends to match their lofty words with real action to combat the Islamic State and other Muslim persecutors of Christians,” Spencer said.

McCarrick should have “asked them to institute programs in mosques and Islamic schools to teach against the literal meaning of the verses I quoted above and others like them, so that they no longer incite Muslims to violence,” in the U.S. or abroad, Spencer said.
