Revisionist history hits the crusades....

Language reveals the honesty or dishonesty of definitions. Revisionist history changes definitions.

Today, in a news article, I read about the "European wars" of 1,000 years ago, which most people would call the invasion of Catholic countries by Muslims. Since when are these "European wars"?

Timeline and reality check: Judaism established about 2,000 B.C. Catholicism established 30 A.D. Islam established 622 A. D.

And in AustraliaOne of the few reports of violence today came from Australia, where 200 protesters clashed with riot police outside the U.S. consulate in Sydney. Demonstrators chanted "Obama, Obama, we love Osama" and waved signs declaring, "Behead all those who insult the Prophet."

The Papal Visit in Lebanon

Sadly, I cannot show photos of the Pope in Lebanon, as most belong to Getty, the company which does not allow bloggers to use its photos.

I have not heard much today about the visit. The British media has basically ignored the events of Pope Benedict's short trip. There is a very short video on the main news site for the world news and I could not find an article.

Keep praying for him and his staff. The Christians left in Lebanon are part of the most ancient group in the world. I am sure the Pope's presence is giving hope to all.

Long memories, long hatred

Just repeat after me: it is not the movie which caused the riots.

And a third article from yet another honest reporter on the subject to add to those listed below.

From Newsmax: Marines Killed on Harry's Base

Two U.S. Marines were killed and other Americans were wounded on Friday during a Taliban attack on a base in southern Afghanistan where Britain's Prince Harry is stationed, U.S. officials told Reuters, speaking on condition of anonymity.
A spokesman for NATO-led forces in Afghanistan said Harry was on the base at the time of the attack but was unharmed.
"Prince Harry was never in any danger," spokesman Martyn Crighton said, adding that the NATO-led International Security Assistance Force (ISAF) would investigate whether his presence on the base had motivated the attack.
The attack involved rocket-propelled grenades, mortars and small-arms fire, with insurgents breaching the perimeter of Camp Bastion in volatile Helmand province, U.S. officials said.
Crighton declined to offer that level of detail or give the nationalities of the victims. Crighton also did not say precisely how many people were wounded in the attack.
Earlier this week, the Afghan Taliban said they were doing everything in their power to either kill or kidnap Queen Elizabeth's grandson in what they dubbed their "Harry Operations."
Crighton said ISAF would investigate whether his presence on the base had motivated the attack.

Christian Whiton has a timely and necessary article online yesterday. I do not know why it has taken 11 years for intelligent commentary to come out of the closet.
