A “Swede” was killed when he perpetrated a suicide bombing in Iraq. Although the bomber has Swedish citizenship, he is of Tunisian origin, according to the news media. He left a widow and small children back in Sweden, but his wife says she is proud of him because be became a martyr.
The only part of the story (the version from the Stockholm News, that is) I don’t understand is this: “She [the wife] was told that her man had died over the telephone.” How does one die over the telephone? I’ve known telephone conversations to be infuriating or tedious, but never actually fatal.
In other news, 80% of the gypsy population in Serbia is unemployed. The report also says that only 15% of the Roma in Serbia have completed primary school.

Apart from Bishop Nazir-Ali, does anyone in the hierachy of the Chursch of England actually believe in God anymore? Or in England itself, or English culture, or the English Crown? Or anything great that motivated our English ancestors to spread Anglicism or Episcopalian thought worldwide?
The bishop in todays news (UK: ‘I Give Their Marriage Seven Years!’ Fury at Bishop’s Slur on ‘Shallow’ Royal Couple) sounds like a Greens/Socialist Party activist speaking through a student newspaper, interviewed at a riot and very self-agrandising. He’s vile. I wouldn’t want him leading my wedding, funeral, baptism or Sunday morning scones.
My own mothers parish priest now celebrates Christianity becoming a ‘minority’ in the parish due to so many atheists. He likens the situation to the start of the Church – small numbers of faithful surrounded by others. I liken it to the END of the Church of England.
It’s no surprise to me that last week those other 5 or 6 CoE Bishops jumped ship to revert to Catholicism. Why remain in an organisation whose only existence seems to be to overturn and reverse everything it used to believe in.
Malachi 2:7-9 7 For the priest’s lips should keep knowledge, and they should seek the law at his mouth: for he is the messenger of the LORD of hosts.
8 But ye are departed out of the way; ye have caused many to stumble at the law; ye have corrupted the covenant of Levi, saith the LORD of hosts.
9 Therefore have I also made you contemptible and base before all the people, according as ye have not kept my ways, but have been partial in the law.

Baron, could not resist answering your question, how does one die over the telephone?
In the case of Yahya Abd-al-Latif Ayyash by a mobile phone containing 15 grams of RDX explosive.
I presume the tunisian killer’s family are allowed to remain in Sweden. If we lived in normal times, they would be immediately expelled back to the country from whence they all crawled. But far from socialism having been defeated, it is thriving in our Western countries and won’t stop until it is victorious. And once that occurs,they will see that their favourite allies, the muslims, will turn on them with a viciousness that the socialists can only imagine in their worst nightmares.
Pastor Mark Holick says the incident in late August occurred as members of the Islamic Society of Wichita were marking the holy month of Ramadan. Police were called when Islamists witnessed Holick and 13 others handing out packets that included the Gospel of John, the Book of Romans in English and Arabic, and a DVD with testimonies of former Muslims who have converted to Christianity.
1st Amendment violation.
Those people arent Swedes and they never will be.
Muslim pupils ‘learn to cut off hands of thieves’
A network of Islamic schools is alleged to have exposed pupils to extremist sentiments.
By Graham Paton 10:42PM GMT 21 Nov 2010
Muslim children are being taught how to chop off thieves’ hands and that Jews are plotting to take over the world at a network of Islamic schools, it has been disclosed.
Up to 5,000 pupils attending weekend schools across Britain are being exposed to textbooks claiming that some Jews were transformed into pigs and apes, and that some offences could be punished with stoning. One book for six year-olds warns that those who do not believe in Islam will be condemned to “hellfire” in death…
According to the BBC, a book for 15 year-olds teaches about Sharia law and its punishments. “For thieves their hands will be cut off for a first offence, and their foot for a subsequent offence,” it says. Two diagrams show where cuts should be made.
For acts of sodomy, children are told that the penalty is death. A textbook says there are different views on whether this should be done by stoning, or burning with fire, or throwing over a cliff. Textbooks for 15 year-olds revive the “Protocols of the Elders of Zion” which teach that Jews want world domination…
