Islamists Welcome Pope to Lebanon By Torching KFC and Hardees in Tripoli (Video)

Pope Benedict arrived in Lebanon today as violent protests swept across the Middle East.

Pope Benedict XVI arrived in Lebanon today and urged peace at a time of great turmoil in the Middle East. The trip will take the pope to the nation with the largest percentage of Christians in the Middle East — nearly 40 percent of Lebanon’s 4 million people, with Maronite Catholics the largest sect.

Violence broke out in Tripoli as Pope Benedict arrived.
Hundreds of protesters set alight a Kentucky Fried Chicken and a Hardee’s restaurant in the northern Lebanese city of Tripoli on Friday, witnesses said, chanting against the pope’s visit to Lebanon and shouting anti-U.S. slogans.

    Christians throughout the region are under attack…He is saying to them “Be Not Afraid”

    I am Catholic and have been praying for Pope Benedict…His courage & message will soothe his frightened flock throughout the region.

    That is why he is there….That is why he sits in St. Peter’s Chair.

    What, then, shall we say in response to this? If God is for us, who can be against us? – Romans 8:31

    [“The U.S. President, Barack Obama, has concealed the true leader of the
    Muslim Brotherhood and these days it is showing no shame with its undue
    pressure on the junta to leave it that way to the Muslim Brotherhood.” To
    speak thus is a liberal parties close to the Egyptian activist who organized
    the first demonstrations in Egypt believe that they can transform their
    country into a democracy.

    The activist, who requested anonymity for fear of reprisals, continues the
    conversation with a group of Western journalists flocked to an impromptu
    press conference just off Tahrir Square where Salafis are gathering to
    demand that the military junta to hand over the country Their candidate,
    Mohammad Morsi. “The President of the United States has hijacked the
    revolution and was diverted into the hands of the Muslim Brotherhood”
    continues the representative of Egyptian liberal parties. “The more time
    passes the more it becomes clear that from the beginning of Barack
    Obama’s plan was to give Egypt the Muslim Brotherhood and we prove
    it is that it is exerting tremendous pressure on the junta to recognize
    bites as the winner of parliamentary elections, even before the Election
    Commission to issue its verdict.“]

    Obama’s kill list and drone strikes implicated as the
    root cause of the strikes. Per Time, this afternoon:

    (#11 – page 1)

    “Noman Benotman, a former leader of the militant Libyan Islamic
    Fighting Group who now runs the Quilliam Foundation, an anti-
    extremist organization in London, said he believed the attack
    had been the work of 20 militants.

    He told CNN that he believed a militant group called the Omar Abdul
    Rahman Brigades could have coordinated the attack, perhaps to
    avenge the killing of Abu Yahya al-Libi, a Libyan al-Qaeda leader,
    who died in a U.S. drone strike in Pakistan last June.”]

    re: Kristin re: intelligence briefings:

    [According to an article in The Washington Post by opinion writer Marc
    Thiessen, President Obama isn’t attending his daily intelligence briefings
    all that often.

    In fact, Thiessen asserts that the President is missing more than half
    his daily intelligence briefings, attending only around 38 percent of his
    Presidential Daily Brief (PDB) intelligence sessions during 2011 and
    through mid-2012.

    If true, that’s really troubling.

    It’s not like there aren’t any high priority national security matters the
    Commander in Chief needs to get briefed on, right? By many accounts,
    the world is on fire and American interests are threatened in a whole
    raft of places around the globe.

    Wouldn’t it be nice to know that the President is keeping up on how
    the fight in Afghanistan is going, where 60,000 brave Americans are
    fighting the likes of the Taliban, Haqqani Network, and al-Qaeda?

    Or maybe what’s going on in Syria, where more than 20,000 people have
    now died over the last 18 months? Then again, what about Iran’s nuclear
    program, which has observers especially nervous that Tehran’s getting
    close to the “bomb”?

    Things aren’t going well in Asia, either. North Korea has a new leader,
    China is on the rise, and territorial disputes in the East and South
    China Seas have folks wondering if real trouble is around the corner.

    And it’s not like missing intelligence briefings is standard practice for an
    American President. Thiessen writes: “By contrast, Obama’s predecessor,
    George W. Bush, almost never missed his daily intelligence meeting.”]

    Two Navy SEALS Were Protecting the Ambassador in Libya

    [The stunning death of former U.S. Navy SEAL Glen Doherty in a terrorist
    attack in Libya left family and friends grieving from the West Coast to the
    tree-lined streets of his proud hometown of Winchester.

    “He was doing this because he felt that people should be protected who
    couldn’t protect themselves — and so he was willing to put himself in
    harm’s way,” said his older brother, Greg Doherty, who lives in California.
    “He was fearless about everything he did in life. He was very good at
    what he did.”

    “I haven’t heard the details of how he died yet,” his brother said last
    night, “but I wouldn’t be surprised if he was doing a lot more than was
    expected of him.”

    [..]

    Tyrone Woods was in the elite Navy unit for 20 years and had two
    teenage sons, according to U-T San Diego News. The former military
    member’s ex-wife Patricia Ann So had this to say about the father
    of her children:

    “He was balls to the wall. He loved life, loved adrenalin. He went
    through Hell Week, the grueling five-and-a-half day training course,
    twice. You could not find a more skilled SEAL than him.”

    The embassy victim’s former spouse was told about his death while
    she was teaching first grade at Spring Valley Elementary School
    and went to inform their sons that their father had died trying to
    protect our country.]

    ““He is coming at a very important moment in the history of our country and just as John Paul II’s visit in 1997 had a tremendous impact on the people here and throughout the region, I believe the same will be true of Pope Benedict’s visit”, Issam Bishara, a Melkite Catholic told Vatican Insider on the eve of the visit.

    Bishara is regional Director of the Pontifical Mission for Palestine, an agency that is proving many kinds of assistance not only to Palestinian refugees but also to tens of thousands of displaced Iraqis and Syrians, irrespective of religion, but among them are many Christians.

    “Muslims and Christians in Lebanon feel the Holy Father comes with a message of peace, and so they welcome him”, he said. However, they like the Lebanese political forces and even the security services are divided over the war in Syria but nobody wants this country to be drawn into another conflict, he added.

    He said the war in Syria is having a disastrous effect on the economy of the Lebanon which was already in grave difficulty even before that conflict started. Today 28% of the country’s 4.1 million people live below the poverty level (that is with less than US$3 per day), according to the UN, at least 20% of the population are unemployed, while the national debt is 1.54% times the size of GDP.

    “We have many displaced people here”, he said. The United Nations reckon there are some 67,000 Syrian refugees in Lebanon but Bishara believes the figure is much higher because the UN only counts those who register with it, while a great many do not register out of fear. “There is a continuous flow in and out across the border with Syria every day, and it is difficult to have precise figures”, he added.

    He noted how the Government and all the political forces – including Hezbollah – are warmly welcoming the pope’s visit, and hope his visit can somehow “contribute to bringing peace” in the region, and especially in Syria.

    A lot of us read the scriptures and know the prophecies.

    You know they’re after the pope.

    They’re killed Copt bishops and many Christians; He has to go to his people… maybe at the cost of his life.
