When Mosques' Are Destroyed President Obama Reacts But When Christian Churches Are Attacked He Is Silent

The President finally addressed the nation and the world nearly two weeks after initiating military action against Libyan dictator Muammar Gaddafi. Boiling down his speech, he claimed a moral imperative to intervene with force because Gaddafi had killed innocent civilians and destroyed mosques in his struggle to hang on to power.

"Mosques destroyed," the president said, supported his argument for air strikes. Churches are being destroyed daily in the Muslim world, but the U.S. does not intervene. Take Iraq, for example. We have sacrificed thousands of our soldiers' lives and billions in treasure in an effort to bring freedom to this war-torn country.

But the Christians there are daily being murdered and their churches bombed. As a senator, Barack Obama had no interest in preventing Saddam Hussein from filling mass graves. He vocally opposed our going into Iraq. That was then.

In Pakistan, the only Christian cabinet member was assassinated and a Muslim governor who sought to protect a Christian woman from death was also gunned down, reputedly by his own security guard. Christians in Pakistan face escalating persecution. Their churches are attacked and anyone who converts from Islam to Christianity is killed.

Yet, we support Pakistan as a partner in the global war on terror. Whether Pakistan supports us is another question. Why have we been fighting in neighboring Afghanistan for ten years against the plotters of 9/11? It's widely believed that Osama bin Laden is somewhere in the wild border regions between the two countries, quite possibly on the Pakistan side. Could Pakistan be playing a double game?

President Obama is unmoved by the plight of Christians in the Sudan. There, a twenty-year civil war has been going on with an Islamist government in Khartoum starving some five million Christians and followers of traditional African religion. This cruel oppression has led the South Sudanese to vote overwhelmingly to break away.

Human Rights lawyer Bill Saunders of Americans United for Life was in the Sudan at Christmas several years ago. He and his fellow worshipers took refuge in the woods as aircraft from the Khartoum Islamist regime came overhead to bomb their church. That was on Christmas day. (Don't we often hear how U.S. military initiatives must be delayed for Ramadan? It seems those holiday truces only work one way.)

No one suggested then or later that the United States should deploy military force in the Sudan to stop this ethnic cleansing of Christians, even though some mosques were also destroyed.

It is surely laudable for the U.S. to stand against massacres. Now, however, it seems that the leader of the Libyan rebels is one who fought against the U.S. in Afghanistan. Abdel-Hakim al-Hasidi was taken prisoner in Pakistan. He also recruited two dozen jihadis to fight the Americans in Iraq.

Does it make sense for American taxpayers to give aid to Libyan rebels without first understanding who they are? Sen. Joe Lieberman (I-Conn.) has said that what we are doing in Libya is "what the Arab world wants us to do." Really? There's every indication that the Arab world would prefer that we bomb Tel Aviv.

Should we be supporting people who have Americans' blood on their hands? Intelligence estimates tell us that nearly one in five of the jihadis we fought against in Iraq came from Libya.

President Obama's speech to the nation raised as many questions as it answered. Members of the U.S. House of Representatives Committee on Foreign Affairs were not consulted, but the Arab League was. So was the UN. This is the same UN that applauded Gaddafi's wild rants in New York just last fall. It is the same body that elected Libya to its Human Rights Council.

Mr. Obama says that Gaddafi is on "the wrong side of history." It's interesting that the president knows where history is going in the Mideast. For the past 1400 years, there has been no democracy anywhere in the Mideast -- except in Israel. And Mr. Obama's policies seem to be aiding and abetting those who have shown the bitterest hatred of Israel.

Police Find Homeless Teens Living In High School

Published : Tuesday, 29 Mar 2011, 8:35 PM CDT

Reporter: Kristin Crowley

MANITOWOC - At the end of Lincoln High's school day on Friday, March 18, when most students were heading home, Manitowoc police say two male teens instead set up camp.

“The kids admitted that they stayed in the school Friday night after school had let out. While in the school, the kids were able to go into a janitor’s office and they took the set of janitor’s keys,” said Manitowoc Police Capt. Jason Freiboth.

Keys that, Freiboth says, gave the teens access throughout the school.

“Allegedly they broke into several lockers, stealing personal property from other individuals,” said Freiboth. “The kids also broke into the cafeteria where they took various food items and drinks.”

Freiboth says the two teenagers were sleeping inside a boiler room at the high school. He says when police questioned them, they told officials they were homeless.

“In my career we’ve never seen anybody actually breaking into the school essentially trying to find a place to live,“ said Freiboth.

Freiboth says the teens chose not to go home, and were never reported as missing. But police were looking for them because they believe the teens had stolen from two area stores.

Freiboth says police got a tip that the two may be staying at the high school, and that's where authorities found them.

“The kids admitted to their involvement in retail theft and were taken into custody at that point,” said Freiboth.

School officials did not have any comment on the matter; however, they may take action at a later time.

Since March 21, officials say the teens have been in jail. Because it is not clear where the charges stand, FOX 11 is not naming the teens.

New Video Games Promotes Violence Against Women

Kidnapping women and slapping them too-- is it okay if it's in a video game made for adults? A Plano company is in the hot seat as their upcoming release gains national attention for what some say is sexism. Video game enthusiasts have been waiting 12 years for a new Duke Nukem video game to hit the market. One is due in just a couple months and some of the content is already raising questions.

It's only the trailer she's watching, but still Jana Barker can't believe her eyes. She says the images she's seeing only help perpetuate a culture of violence against women.

Two-Thirds Of Oil And Gas Leases In Gulf Inactive As Oil Prices Continue To Rise

WASHINGTON – An Interior Department report to be released Tuesday says more than two-thirds of offshore oil and gas leases in the Gulf of Mexico are sitting idle.

According to the report, obtained by The Associated Press, those inactive swaths of the Gulf could potentially hold more than 11 billion barrels of oil and 50 trillion cubic feet of natural gas. The report also shows that 45 percent of all onshore oil and gas leases are inactive.

President Barack Obama ordered the Interior Department review earlier this month amid pressure to curb rising gas prices. The White House says Obama will address his plans for the country's energy security during a speech in Washington Wednesday.

U.S Government Shut Down Increaslingly Likely

WASHINGTON, March 29 (UPI) -- U.S. House Majority Leader Eric Cantor said Tuesday "time is up" on the budget battle, indicating a government shutdown April 8 is increasingly likely.

Cantor ruled out further stopgap funding measures through additional continuing resolutions.

"I want to see a long-term CR here," The Hill quoted him as saying. "We've got bigger things to deal with. Time is up here."

Without further continuing resolutions, Congress has 10 days to come up with a deal that would fund the government through the end of the fiscal year in September.

"We need to see [Senate Majority Leader] Harry Reid and [Sen.] Chuck Schumer get serious," Cantor told reporters in his Capitol suite. "We need to see the president get involved."

House Speak John Boehner has been equally vocal in criticizing inaction from Democrats. "At no point in the 34 days since the House acted have the Democrats who run the Senate and the White House put forward a credible, long-term plan to resolve their budget mess," Boehner said in statement last week.

The House passed a bill Feb. 19 that would cut more than $60 billion in government spending, but the Senate has yet to act on either the House bill or an alternative from Democrats, who appear bent on driving a wedge between the GOP leadership and the Tea Party caucus.

"I am extremely disappointed that after weeks of productive negotiations with Speaker Boehner, Tea Party Republicans are scrapping all the progress we have made and threatening to shut down the government if they do not get all of their extreme demands," Reid said in a statement Monday, urging "mainstream Republicans" to "stand up to the Tea Party and rejoin Democrats at the table to negotiate a responsible solution."

Ohio: Woman Murdered By Abusive Husband And His Parents

Logan police say the body of Summer Inman was found Tuesday, hidden in an underground septic tank behind a small rural church.

Investigators located 25-year-old Summer's body just off U.S. 33 at about 8:15 p.m., according to Logan police.

The body was found intact and hidden in the septic system behind a small church less than a mile from the Hocking County line.

Logan police Chief Aaron Miller said the Hocking County coroner later would release the cause of death but it appears Summer was killed quickly after she was abducted Tuesday, March 22.

PHOTO TIME LINE: Disappearance of Summer Inman

Tarps, police vehicles and fire trucks surrounded the scene near Wayne National Forest overnight Wednesday as agents, officers and deputies combed the area for evidence.

Police said Summer's state ID was found with her body.

The Hocking County prosecutor said authorities negotiated with one of the three suspects in the kidnapping to obtain the location of Summer's body.

Police said 46-year-old Sandra Inman asked to speak with her attorney Monday and then provided her attorney with information on the location of Summer's body.

Sandra, her son 26-year-old William A. Inman Jr. and her husband 47-year-old William A. Inman Sr. were arrested on kidnapping charges on the evening of Thursday, March 24, in Jackson County.

The younger Inman is Summer's estranged husband. The elder Inman and Sandra are Summer's father-in-law and mother-in-law.

Eyewitness accounts indicated two males forced Summer into a vehicle outside Century National Bank in the area of Hunter and Market streets in Logan at about 11 p.m. Tuesday, March 22.

Police said they were not sure for how long or whether the abduction was pre-planned.

According to police, the younger Inman told authorities Wednesday, March 23, that he was in the Cleveland area with his parents at the time of Summer's kidnapping.

Investigators said they determined his alibi was false and a search warrant was executed. Police said significant evidence was found during the search and led to the arrest warrants.

Miller said evidence indicated all three suspects participated in the abduction, but he could not say if all three participated in the murder.

Police said the Inmans, excluding Summer, might have been members of the church where the body was found.

Details were released Monday, March 28, and Tuesday, March 29, about the alleged actions of the Inmans the morning after Summer's abduction.

Logan police said the trio first stopped at a car wash south of Cleveland and that surveillance footage shows the Inmans cleaning the interior and making changes to the appearance of their vehicle.

Investigators said the Inmans may have stopped at two separate car washes in the McConnelsville area prior to their arrival at the Cleveland-area car wash.

Police said three people believed to be the suspects also stopped at an auto shop in Cleveland between 10 and 11 a.m. Wednesday, March 23.

Police said the elder Inman sold the tires that were on the vehicle, bought new tires and switched them on site before leaving.

Summer filed for a divorce from the younger Inman in June 2010. According to the divorce filing, the younger Inman threatened to kill her if she were to leave with the children. Summer also said in the complaint her husband would hide her car keys and cell phone and hold her captive inside their home.

The younger Inman and his parents were transported to Southeastern Regional Jail and booked Friday. They are being held without bond.

The suspects are scheduled to be arraigned at 1 p.m. Wednesday in Hocking County common pleas court.

The prosecutor said additional charges may not be filed until the grand jury convenes in late April.

From the day that Summer went missing in Logan Ohio we have been watching and praying that she would be found safe. But today we find out just how inhuman these people who were her husband and in-laws really were. They killed this poor woman for wanting a better life for herself and her children. A life away from the abuse, fear, and torment that they put her through. A life where her children would not be exposed to the horrors of domestic violence.

So because Summer wanted this new life away from her abuser, her husband and in-laws kidnapped her and murdered her, and then threw her body in a septic tank behind a church! For them to throw her into a tank of human feces clearly shows just how they viewed her as a human being. She was just a pile of human feces to them and so that is where they put her.

Domestic Violence is so rampid in our area of Ohio. I myself am a victim of domestic violence, what these people did to Summer is what my Ex-husband threatened to do to me. His very words 10 years ago were, "if you try to leave I will kill you and bury you body in Hocking Hills and no one will find you" Hocking hills is in Hocking County where Summer was abducted. So reading her story was like reading my own in a way. Only my story had a different outcome. I did get away and my Ex husband did not kill me and only by the Grace of God am I alive today.

Many times today I have asked God, "why would you save me and not her (Summer)?" My mind cannot fathom why God saves one and not the other, but God is God and I am not. And I must lean on his all knowing Wisdom that he will use this woman's death for Good and Evil will be destroyed through the death of this innocent woman.

For every woman and man that is murdered by her/his abuser, remember there are hundreds still living in the bondage of abuse and have not yet been set free. We must pray for these women, men and children who suffer daily at the hands of their abusers that God will deliver them from their bondage, and bring them out of the prison they have been placed in.

If you are a victim of domestic violence and need help go to
