Ten Links and Four Blogs - May 6

I have much to discuss today. No intro here, so let's get to it.

Here are four blogs that I believe are worthy of your 'Favorites' folder:
Confederate Yankee
Dizzy Fat Plonka
Forrest Shalom
Western Defence

Two links as it concerns our American friends:

1) Porter Goss, head of the CIA has resigned. There is much wailing and gnashing of teeth in Langley, Virginia, including a Democrat Jane Harman of the House Intelligience Committee saying that the CIA is in a "free fall".

2) Bill O'Reilly on oil and immigrants. Bill asks two very good questions: If Brazil can produce ethanol, why can't we? and What IS the real deal behind the flaccid response to illegal immigration? Bill's answer? It's all about the Benjamins, baby.

Take The Skinheads Bowling Dep't: German police are none too pleased about a rise in neo-Nazi activity as they target World Cup '06 crowds.

Who Dares Wins (or how to bloody well win a war the English way). Archived from 1980 as the Special Air Service, aka the SAS, storm the Iranian embassy in London, England.

From worldtribune.com comes a list of the most censored media in the world. The turkey prize goes to North Korea.

Two items concerning Israel:

1) PM Ehud Olmert is actively considering the partitioning of Jerusalem. I don't know about you, but becoming a lightning rod for God's wrath strikes me as a bad idea.

2) Why are the Chinese shipping arms to Gaza? Israeli authorities have just recently intercepted a shipment of arms to the PA.

I have three links concerning religion. From Australia, Iran and Geneva are very different stories, yet I believe all share a common thread.

1) Sydney, Australia: Archbishop Cardinal George Pell is raising a stink about Islam. He thinks Islam is wee bit violent. Well, knock me over with a feather! Aussie Muslims not terribly amused over an infidel showing them for what they truly are.

2) Here is a link from worldnetdaily about Iran's Thug-in-Chief, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. I've reported on this before but I decided it was worth running again.

3) The late Adrian Rogers once said, "When looking for the Devil (or demonic influence at least - JC), never fail to look at the pulpit first!". When I look at the World Council of Churches, I tend to believe Dr. Rogers was bang-on.

Wow. Hope that makes up for Friday. More to follow at the X-Def so stay tuned .....
