Teen stopping hunger one person at a time By Tracy Overstreet

When Matt Vajgrt drove past a man standing on a Grand Island street holding a sign asking for food, he knew exactly what he needed to do — pull over and give the man some leftover pizza.

Vajgrt and friends from his church had just gathered at Bonzai Beach Club in downtown Grand Island. He couldn’t finish his pizza selection, one of many at the restaurant that bear surfboarding names.

“I had about half a pizza left,” Vajgrt said. “His sign said ‘money for food,’ so I stopped and just gave him my food.”

“He was happy — saying, ‘God bless you. Thank you,’” Vajgrt said. “It felt good to help someone.”

It was a spur-of-the-moment good deed, but response to a heartfelt concern the Grand Island Senior High School junior has had for some time.

Christians in Syrian Arab Republic - targeted by both sides

Syrian regime threatens Christians, clamps down on churches
Sunday, 26 February 2012
Many Syrian Christians have been targeted by the regime of President Bashar al-Assad for participating in protests demanding his ouster. (Reuters)
By Mohamed Zeid Mestou
Al Arabiya Beirut
As part of its campaign against all pro-democracy activists, the Syrian regime has been persecuting Christian citizens and clergy who take part in the revolution or help the revolutionaries.
Several Christians also started realizing the hollowness of the regime's words as they were reminded of the Syrian constitution's stipulation that the president of the country should be Muslim, an article that also enraged several Muslim activists, who agreed with Christians that the presidency is a national and not a sectarian matter.

Christians were more outraged at the regime after security forces attacked the historic Syriac Orthodox Um al-Zennar Church in Homs and stole its contents. This incident was followed by a remarkable participation of Christians in anti-regime protests

The Red Cross has started evacuating women and children trapped in the crossfire between President Bashar al-Assad's supporters and rebel fighters in the city of Homs. Many Christians are also believed to still be trapped in the tumultuous city.
"The armed Islamist Opposition in Syria has murdered more than 200 Christians in the city of Homs, including entire families with young children. These Islamic gangs kidnapped Christians and demanded high ransoms. In two cases, after the ransoms were paid, the men's bodies were found.

"Christians are being forced to flee the city to the safety of government controlled areas. Muslim rebel fighters and their families are taking over their homes. We need your prayers and we need them urgently," a representative of the organization pleaded.

White House Statement on the Case of Iranian Pastor Youcef Nadarkhani

February 23, 2012

The United States condemns in the strongest possible terms reports that Iranian authorities’ reaffirmed a death sentence for Iranian Pastor Youcef Nadarkhani for the sole reason of his refusal to recant his Christian faith. This action is yet another shocking breach of Iran’s international obligations, its own constitution, and stated religious values. The United States stands in solidarity with Pastor Nadarkhani, his family, and all those who seek to practice their religion without fear of persecution—a fundamental and universal human right. The trial and sentencing process for Pastor Nadarkhani demonstrates the Iranian government’s total disregard for religious freedom, and further demonstrates Iran’s continuing violation of the universal rights of its citizens. The United States calls upon the Iranian authorities to immediately lift the sentence, release Pastor Nadarkhani, and demonstrate a commitment to basic, universal human rights, including freedom of religion. The United States renews its calls for people of conscience and governments around the world to reach out to Iranian authorities and demand Pastor Nadarkhani’s immediate release.

Mufti incites Muslim mob stoning Christians on Temple Mount

Link for article "Muslims stone Christians on Temple Mount.": http://www.israeltoday.co.il/News/tabid/178/nid/23122/language/en-US/Default.aspx

Who is the "Palestinian" Islamic leader former Mufti 'Ekrama Sabri?'

The Mufti Ekrama Sabri (Ikrema Sabri, Ekrima Sabri, Ikrima Sabri) has Islamized even further the (anti-Israel wave of violence by Arab-Palestinians since 2000, also known as) "intifada" as even more of a Holy war / Jihad,{1} linking the "intifada" to the al-Aqsa mosque:

Our campaign is definitely religious and emanates from belief, although we try to avoid this slogan. The current Intifada of the {Arab and Islamic} world is a religious outburst, because it relates to the Al-Aqsa mosque.{2}

Glorifying child martyrdom, he stated: 'the younger the martyr, the greater and the more I respect him.'{3} From the US Congress:

In the aftermath of the 1993 Oslo Accords, Yassir Arafat's Palestinian Authority asserted preeminence on the Temple Mount through the subversion of the Waqf and by coercing the Jordan-affiliated officials and clergymen off the Temple Mount. Arafat personally nominated the virulently anti-Semitic and anti-American Mufti Ikrima Sabri as the Imam of al-Aqsa Mosque. In May 1998, Sabri declared that the Jews have no right to the Temple Mount

He has been instilling hatred in Palestinian-Arab children.{5}

From his anti-American jihad and his dehumanization of Jews, the radical Islamic "apes and pigs," fantasy, Ikrama Sabri (In a sermon at Al-Aksa Mosque, July 11, 1997):

"Oh Allah, destroy America . . . Allah shall take revenge on behalf of his prophet against the colonialist settlers who are sons of monkeys and pigs."{6}{7}{8}

Author, in his New York Times bestseller book:

The Palestinian Authority–appointed mufti, Sheikh Ikrima Sabri, added strongly anti-American themes to the Temple Mount sermons. Weeks before September 11, Sabri had gone so far to declare before worshipers, "Allah, bring destruction on the United States, on those who help it and on all its collaborators." He also called for the destruction of Great Britain. His militant anti-Americanism continued years later. For example, on December 3, 2004, he charged the US with waging a cultural war against Muslims, which was part of the "Crusader-Zionist attack on Islam." It was notable that these themes were still being voiced even after the death of Yasser Arafat and his replacement by Mahmoud Abbas (Abu Mazen), who had been courted by the Bush administration.{9}

Sabri is an outrageous denier of Jewish history,{10}{11} part of negative pehenomenon by official PA.{12} A form of Arab racism.{13} He also called upon Jews who migrated (after the Holocaust to their homeland) from Germany, to simply go back there, in an interview to German media.{14}{15}

The Arab-Islamic apartheid prohibiting selling land to Jews,{16} was pushed {further} by Mufti Sabri in the 1990s. He has barred all Muslims accused of selling land to Jews from being buried in a Muslim cemetery. And it is punishable by death.{17} PA Mufti Ikrama Sabri:

"Whoever is found to have sold land to Jews, his punishment is death. It is forbidden to pray for him, it is forbidden to purify his body before burial, and it is forbidden to bury him in a Muslim cemetery. We are obligated to remind the public of this religious law, so as not to allow Jews to purchase Arab land and property with dollars they receive from America in order to throw us out of this land." (In an interview with an Israeli newspaper, May, 1997){18}{19}

He renewed the Islamic decree "fatwa" in 2008.{20}

He's an ugly Holocaust denier.{21} Among Islamic 'religious leaders' anti-Semitic Holocaust deniers are noted: "Sheikh Mohammad Mehdi Shamseddin of Lebanon, Sheik Ikrima Sabri of Jerusalem and Iranian religious leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei."{22}

From his virulent anti-Jewish racism, Sabri said in 2000:

"I am filled with rage toward the Jews. I have never greeted a Jew when I came near one. I never will. The Jews do not dare to bother me, because they are the most cowardly creatures Allah has ever created."{23}

In 2005, he was to be on a "jury" of a Mock-Trial of Bush/Blair/Sharon by the Arab Lawyers Union.{24} The 'Union of Arab Lawyers' itself is infamous of horrific anti-Semitism embedded with raw Nazi sentiments like the Sturmer cartoons, as expressed in Durban 2001,{25} racist conference.{26} The other one on the "jury" was George Golloway, who allied himself in 2006{27} with the Nazi SSNP.{28}{29}

He was arrested in 2009, for role in {East Jerusalem} Arab anti-Jewish attacks on Yom Kippur.{30}

In February 2012, (now former) Mufti Sabri incited Muslim masses. A mob of 50 Muslims attacked and stoned Christians who visited the historic place of the Jews. Christian tourists and Israeli police protecting them were injured.{31}{32}

British MP George Galloway... Britain's Stop the War Coalition and the darling of Canada's "anti-war" left, was on a whirlwind run of speaking engagements in Ontario -- one of which was a celebration to commemorate the 74th anniversary of the founding of the Syrian Social Nationalist Party.
The SSNP is devoted to the creation of a "Greater Syria" that would engulf Israel and Lebanon along with several other countries that lie between the Euphrates and the Nile. For decades, the SSNP was known mainly as a shadowy terrorist organization distinguished by its practice of turning emotionally-disturbed young women into suicide bombers. But last year, right around the time Galloway was visiting Syrian dictator Bashar al-Assad and praising him to the skies as "the fortress of the remaining dignity of the Arabs," the SSNP was absorbed within Syria's ruling Baathist coalition.
