>Senator Lautenberg Statement On Death Of Osama bin Laden

>NEWARK — U.S. Sen. Frank Lautenberg (D-NJ) issued the following statement after learning that Osama bin Laden was killed:

“People across the civilized world will have great satisfaction and relief with news of the death of Osama bin Laden, one of the worst killers in the history of man. He was a ruthless terrorist responsible for a savage mission that killed thousands of innocent Americans and others around the world. Now we must be particularly diligent and let the message get out that we’ll do whatever is necessary to stop this kind of madness. Osama bin Laden’s disciples must know that the free world is united against terror and will fight terrorists no matter who they are, where they hide and no matter who their protectors might be. A 9/11 must never be allowed to happen again. I commend the bravery and sacrifice of all those who have been engaged in the pursuit of terrorists and all of those who continue to fight the insanity that drives terrorists who believe they can follow in this course.”

>President Obama’s Weekly Address 3/26/11: The Military Mission in Libya

>WASHINGTON – In his weekly address, President Obama told the American people that the military mission in Libya is succeeding even as responsibility is transferred to our NATO allies and partners. Qaddafi’s air defenses have been taken out, his forces are no longer advancing across the country, and in places like Benghazi, his forces have been pushed back. Every American can be proud of the lives we have saved and of the service of our men and women in uniform who once again have stood up for our interests and our ideals.

Muslims celebrate Eid al-adha at Brookdale Community College

I thought this was interesting but wonder if some people with small minds would be offended to know that a community college right in their backyard, would help the local Muslim community celebrate one of it’s most holy events of the year – Eid al-adha – a celebration of Abraham.

For all of the talk about how diversity in Monmouth County is cherished and respected, the simple fact of the matter is that minorities make up only about 5 percent of the population. I don’t think that a majority of residents would see this celebration at Brookdale as a positive .
I think they would rather dwell on the negative by saying how could a higher learning center that is taxpayer supported, reach out to a community that is perceived to be so opposed to their Judeo-Christan beliefs.
It’s a shame that a few people would have to feel this way. I think it is a good thing that Brookdale would support such an event as this and lend a hand at helping residents understand that diverisity and understanding of others is a good thing, not something that should be feared or looked down upon.

Asbury Park Press
MIDDLETOWN — Millions of Muslims from around the world celebrated their most important holiday this week with the Hajj to Mecca, Saudi Arabia. The culmination of the ritual was its Eid al-adha, a celebration to Abraham.

At the Collins Arena at Brookdale Community College in Middletown, about 1,000 people attended the Islamic Society of Monmouth County’s celebration on Friday morning.

A pillar of the religion for adherents is to go on a pilgrimage to the holy land.

Ibrahim Naboulis of Marlboro, a member of the society, fulfilled his obligation to his religion five years ago.

“I was one of the lucky ones,” he said, referring his opportunity to go on the pilgrimage as a fate from God.

“I cannot describe the experience,” Naboulis said, referring to his pilgrimage. “There are no kings, no presidents. Everyone is equal, you do not know who is standing, praying next to you. Everyone is the same.”

The Hajj is for Muslims a chance to cleanse themselves of sin, and to be a good person, said Mohamed Meshal of Tinton Falls. He has had the privilege of going on the pilgrimage five times.

For Muslims in this area, the society celebrates each year with an Eid al-adha.

The celebration at the college included chanting to God, praying, donations for the society and the poor, and a festival that included games for children, food and trivia games.

Mohammad Hugh, 17, of Middletown said someday he would make a pilgrimage to Mecca, but for now he is grateful for attending this event.

Patty Samy Degheidy of South Amboy also attended the religious event.

“We are here to celebrate Abraham,” she said. “This is our day to celebrate the miracle of God allowing Abraham to sacrifice a lamb and not Ismael (Abraham’s son).

1 in 3 NJ Conservatives Think Obama May Be The Anti-Christ


Is it possible, could President Barack Hussin Obama be the anti-Christ? According to a recent poll by Public Policy Polling, 1 out of 3 NJ conservatives seem to think so.

To be more exact, 18% of self-identified conservatives say with out a doubt that Obama is the anti-Christ while 17% aren’t quite sure.
To make matters seem a little worse 14% of self-identified Republicans think that Obama has the number 666 concealed somewhere underneath his hair. Additionally another 15% aren’t quite sure about that either.
Now what I want to know is, if President Obama is a closeted Muslim, like many right-winger conservatives such as the “birthers” and “tenthers” seem to think, how can he be the anti-Christ, after all doesn’t one need to be a christian first to qualify as the anti-Christ?
