Investors Op-Ed: “Jihad: Washington’s strategy to defeat terrorism is lacking in many ways, but none more than its failure to attack it at its root: the Muslim Brotherhood. But that may change with the fast-tracking of a bill to outlaw the terror network.

In a major development on this important front, the House Judiciary Committee Wednesday passed a bill to effectively ban the Muslim Brotherhood as a designated terrorist group, 17-10.

The legislation — which freezes Brotherhood assets and also outs its front groups, including hundreds in the U.S. — is headed for the House floor. Its passage there is likely since the GOP leadership supports HR 3892, which has 28 co-sponsors and is steadily gaining new backers each week.”

Opinion: The elephant in the room is: What does the president know and when did he know it? The Muslim Brotherhood, prior to the Arab Spring of 2011, had been banned in Egypt for 30 years.

After a short stint of chaos and bloodshed during Mohamed Morsi’s term as president, it is banned again.

But Mohamed Morsi, the Brotherhood’s president, could not have happened without the backing of the US president, who in 2009, gave the group legitimacy by inviting them to his Cairo speech.

Since then, the Brotherhood has been imbedded in US politics with sub-groups: Islamic Society of North America (ISNA), the North American Islamic Trust (NAIT) and the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR).

The chief advisor to then Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has well-known family ties to the group and if she becomes president we can expect Huma Abadin to hold a Cabinet position.

So, the $666 million dollar question is: If HR 3892 passes both houses of Congress will the president sign, or veto?

Pope calls for worldwide ban on death penalty

Reuters: “Pope Francis on Sunday called for the worldwide abolition of the death penalty, saying the commandment “You shall not kill” was absolute and equally valid for the guilty as for the innocent.

“I appeal to the consciences of those who govern to reach an international consensus to abolish the death penalty,” he told tens of thousands of people in St. Peter’s Square.

“The commandment “You shall not kill,” has absolute value and applies to both the innocent and the guilty,” he told the crowd.

Opinion: Here is why Pastors study Hebrew (OT) and Greek (NT). In English, Exodus 20:13 reads “Thou Shalt Not Kill”. But The Hebrew word is Lo tirtzach!  giving the verse a clear and unequivocal meaning: “Do Not Murder.”

I have wondered what Bible this Pope uses or if he uses a Bible at all when he makes these proclamations. To call for a worldwide ban on the death penalty is not Biblical.

The Old Testament has several commands for the death penalty

  • Ex. 21:12 – Murder
  • Ex.  21:16 – Kidnapping
  • Lev 18:23 – Bestiality
  • Lev. 20:10 – Adultery
  • Lev. 20:13 – Homosexuality
  • Deut. 13:5 – False Prophets
  • Deut. 13:4 – Prostitution/rape

In the New Testament Romans 13:1-2 gives clear guidance on the civil law:

“Let every soul be subject to the governing authorities. For there is no authority except from God, and the authorities that exist are appointed by God.  Therefore whoever resists the authority resists the ordinance of God, and those who resist will bring judgment on themselves.”
