Africa's Horn, Israel, and Paul Maurice - May 14

First and foremost I would like say 'Happy Mother's Day'! Moms do such tireless work and if you have a good one like I do consider yourself blessed.

There seems to be a proliferation of activity in the Horn of Africa, especially Somalia, Ethiopia and the Sudan. In Ezekiel 38 and 39, there is a prophecy concerning the last days as Israel is attacked by a conglomeration of nations. Three of the four, Russia, Iran and Libya strike me as rather obvious. It is the people of 'Put and Cush' (black Africans) however, that pique me the most. Due to the amount of suffering and poverty in that region, there does not seem a logical reason why any kind of military invasion would be launched from there. Certainly it is a most atypical 'launching pad' really for ANY kind of invasion. God of course cannot tell a lie so we rest on His word.

Israeli police and protesters are clashing in Jerusalem over Israel's decision to build a security fence near the city.

In Afghanistan, the Taliban are saying 'Hello' to our troops the only way they know how.

In China, expectations of droughts, floods and a losing season of Toronto Maple Leaf hockey are causing many to worry. Except for the hockey part which I clearly made up.

From the 'I did not see this coming AT ALL' Dep't: JFJ announces that Paul Maurice will, in fact, be the next head coach of the TML (yawn). Hey Paul, stock up on antacids, aspirin and anti-depressants before you get underway. Believe me, you'll thank me for it.

Labour unrest in Dubai as foreign (Indian mostly) workers are up in arms. Their demands are as follows:
1) Getting paid on time and in the correct amount.
2) To be able to work less than 16 hours a day.
3) Not living in slums.
The NERVE of these workers! Don't they realize that they are working in the Islamic paradise of Dubai? Such progressive thinking in an Islamic country will never do. The next thing you know the Arabs might have to share real political power with these infidels!

In Indonesia, a volcano is erupting causing villagers to flee. My inner geek is telling me, "Erupting volcanoes are cool!".

Fifth Column Jihad Dep't: Why are so many convicts in America's penal system turning to Islam? Because sociopathic behaviour and jihad are a natural fit, that's why.

Just when you thought it was safe to hug a Dane, a video is calling for a 'sea of blood' over those stupid Prophet Mo cartoons. Allright, let me ask you a question. Does Dan Brown, author of The DaVinci Code, live under a death threat? Have there been angry hordes of Presbyterians outside a movieplex whipping themselves into a frenzy over 'DaVinci'? How many Anglicans are actively intimidating those who wish to see this silly movie? How many Southern Baptists are calling for a war with anyone associated with this film? The answers to these four questions is no, no, none and none. That, my friend, is the difference between us and them.

Aaahhh..... That feels better. Stay tuned.
