Wars of the future will be fought over water as they are over oil today, as the source of human survival enters the global marketplace and political arena. Corporate giants, private investors, and corrupt governments vie for control of our dwindling supply, prompting protests, lawsuits, and revolutions from citizens fighting for the right to survive. Past civilizations have collapsed from poor water management. Can the human race survive?

Water Wars…Explosive growth and recent droughts have made the American Southwest a hotbed of water woes. Here’s the story of 2 towns caught up in a war over water.
The following is JUST a small sample what I got in email yesterday…
Once again, we see how Western concepts, when articulated through an Islamic framework, lead to results antithetical to the West. For instance, “democracy” and “elections”—which in the West suggest “freedom,” “human rights,” “liberty,” etc.—are today being used to bring sharia law, the antithesis of Western law, to power.
In this recent video, the Muslim Brotherhood’s Dr. Safwat Hegazy, right, a popular preacher, talks about how he yearns to see Arab nations become “like the United States”—for them to unify into the “United Arab States.” While that may sound like an admirable (or at least neutral) goal, bear in mind what he is alluding to: the resurrection of a caliphate—which by nature exists to expand, including through jihad.
Below, note the difference in what senior Muslim Brotherhood leader, Dr. Essam el-Erian, tells the West on this video from CNN and what he said HERE in the Arabic media :
Muslim Brotherhood: Only ‘Drunks, Druggies and Adulterers’ Reject Sharia. Popular Egyptian Presidential Candidate: ‘Sharia Must be Applied’.
Some see Sharia Law (Islamic Law) as a threat to human rights, discriminating specifically against women, gays, and non-Muslims. This limited understanding of Sharia may lead to a half-hearted response rather than a serious fight for the US’s strategic interests. It is, however, difficult for an honest person to deny the fact that Sharia Law is a threat to human rights for the real threat of Sharia goes far beyond infringements of human rights.
Careful observation of our modern history reveals that the US has had major troubles from all Muslim countries or systems that have implemented Sharia Law.
The following is a list of Islamic countries and societies that have implemented Sharia Law as the main law of the land:
Saudi Arabia produced Bin Laden. 15 of the 19 hijackers of the planes that attacked the twin towers on September 11 were Saudis. petrodollars coming out of Sharia-ruled Saudi Arabia have been used to support Islamists in Egypt and other Islamic countries thus promoting more Islamic-based hatred and animosity toward the US.
The Iranian Islamic regime that has shown aggression toward the US and currently aims at creating a nuclear bomb that threatens world stability and security. The relationship between the US and Iran declined dramatically after the Iran regime adopted Sharia Law following the Islamic revolution in 1979.
3-Afghanistan under the Taliban regime
Under Sharia Law created a system extremely hostile toward the West, including the US. The Sharia-ruled Taliban adopted Al-Qaeda fighters and caused – and is still causing -major troubles for the US. The true nature of the Taliban as an anti-American regimen has been exposed.
Relations between Sudan and the US have significantly declined after the implementation of Sharia in the country.
Has shown animosity toward the US and has become a breeding ground for terrorists since it became controlled by the Al-Shabbab Islamic movement that implemented Sharia Law in the land. Several US Muslim citizens also became radicalized in Somalia after Sharia dominated it.
Without a single exception, the US has suffered major troubles from all of these countries.
Sharia causes animosity toward the US (as a symbol of the highest power of western civilization) in several ways as we see below:
1. Sharia Law creates hatred toward the values of freedom and equality that are the founding principles of the US.
2. Sharia induces a notion of the supremacy of Islam above all non-Muslims. Several Quranic verses have been used to promote this principle of supremacy of Muslims and Islam.
NOTE: All you have to do is go to Prophet of Doom to see the Quranic verses to know the violence of Sharia.
Quran 48:28 It is He Who has sent His Messenger with Guidance and the Religion of Truth, to proclaim it over (superior to) all religion: and enough is Allah for a Witness.
3. Sharia principles teach the values of Jihad to spread the religion and subjugate non-Muslims to Islamic laws. With no single exception, all schools of Islamic Jurisprudence (Shafeii, Hanbali, Maleki, and Hanafi)-until today-promote that Muslims MUST declare war on and fight Non-Muslims until they subjugate to Islam.
The integration of the previous 3 factors can explain to some extent the observed positive correlation between implementing Sharia and creating hostility toward the US and other western countries.
To conclude; The trouble that has faced the US from countries that adopted Sharia Law in the last few decades, and the enormous costs that were paid by the US in these confrontations, should make the US consider Sharia not only an infringement to Human Rights but, more importantly, a serious threat to its national security and strategic interests.
Quran 9:29 Fight those who believe not in Allah nor the Last Day, nor hold that forbidden which hath been forbidden by Allah and His Messenger, nor acknowledge the religion of Truth, (Islam) of the People of the Book (Jews and Christians), until they pay the Jizya with willing submission, and feel themselves subdued.
One of worse examples recently has been a judge’ ruling “Christians can’t eat pork,” enforces Muslim Sharia law upon all Ohio Prisoners:
In yet another example of the Judicial Islamicization of America, a U.S. federal judge in Ohio has enforced “Sharia” Muslim law forbidding Christian prisoners from eating pork in prison.
To accommodate Muslim comlainers, an Ohio Prison Director Gary C. Mohr banned pork from all kitchen in all prisons under control of the Ohio Department of Rehabilitation and Correction. The Muslims had threatened a lawsuit to demand “halal” meals and kitchens, so ODRC entirely removed pork and forced all Christian prisoners to eat Muslim food.
One brave Christian prisoner, James Rivers, filed a lawsuit opposing the enforcement of Muslim “Sharia” law upon all the prisoners, and demanded his right to eat pork.
“Plaintiff asserts that this…violates the Establishment Clause of the First Amendment, subjects him to cruel and unusual punishment in violation of the Eight Amendment, denies him substantive and procedural due process, and denies him Equal Protection,” read the complaint.
I close with a small example how Sharia has creeped into our country.
David Horowitz has said identified similar cases in at least 20 states where a full-scale campaign has been launched by American Muslim organizations seeking to push Sharia law ahead of constitutional law.
Last fall, a Muslim attacked a Pennsylvania man name Ernest Perce who had dressed up like Mohammed for a Halloween parade. The attack was caught on film, witnessed by dozens of parade watchers, and verified by a policeman.
The Muslim was charged. But when he was brought before Cumberland County Judge Mark Martin, the judge dismissed the assault charges against the Muslim and dressed down the Pennsylvania man for being insensitive to the Muslim religion. Not only did Martin rule in favor of the Muslim attacker, he lectured Ernest Perce for insulting Islam: “Islam is not just a religion, it’s their culture. It’s their very essence their very being… And what you’ve done is, you’ve complete trashed their essence, their being. They find it very, very, very offensive. I find it offensive.”
Guess what—I’m offended too, but for an entirely different reason. This Sharia law sympathy is part of a pattern. We have identified similar cases in at least 20 states where a full-scale campaign has been launched by American Muslim organizations seeking to push Sharia law ahead of constitutional law.
Judge Martin, the man who told the attack victim he was “way outside the bounds of his first amendment rights,” was completely out of line. Worse, his behavior sets a horrible precedent. Martin’s blind ignorance of the constitution has opened the door for Muslims to legally attack Americans who they feel offends them on religious grounds.
That’s why the Freedom Center has launched an information campaign, complete with newspaper ads that we plan to run in select papers in Pennsylvania, exposing Martin’s disregard for individual rights and his work to protect Muslims at any cost. We’ll also run a larger scale campaign to educate Americans about Sharia law and how Muslim groups, including the insidious Muslim Brotherhood, are intimidating local officials in communities and on campuses throughout the country.
Spokesperson for Chicago’s Mental Health Movement says the Occupation of a mental health clinic in the Woodlawn neighborhood was to put pressure on city officials to keep clinics open.
“On Thursday, [April 12] there was an occupation of a Mental Health Clinic in Woodlawn. The Clinic is called The Woodlawn Mental Health Clinic. The occupants decided, they arrived at this action, by a series of efforts to lobby the city, particularly the Health Department and the Mayor of Chicago, Rahm Emanuel, to keep the clinics open,” the spokesperson for Chicago’s Mental Health Movement told Press TV’s U.S. Desk in an interview on Saturday, on condition of anonymity.
“Now the public health system in Chicago is restructuring and they are privatizing the clinics and the mental health clinic as the result. What is happening is that six clinics this year are going to be closed and the Woodlawn Mental Health Clinic is one of those slated to be closed on April 30th,” he continued.
The spokesperson went on to add that as a result of the city’s decision to privatize and therefore close the Woodlawn Clinic, the consumers of the Mental Health Movement, decided that they needed to take a drastic action to get the attention of the mayor and the city of Chicago. So part of that was to actually occupy the clinic which took place on Thursday [April 12].
RICHMOND, Va. – On Wednesday, the Virginia legislature overwhelmingly passed a law that forbids state agencies from cooperating with any federal attempt to exercise the indefinite detention without due process provisions written into sections 1021 and 1022 of the National Defense Authorization Act.
HB1160“Prevents any agency, political subdivision, employee, or member of the military of Virginia from assisting an agency of the armed forces of the United States in the conduct of the investigation, prosecution, or detention of a United States citizen in violation of the United States Constitution, Constitution of Virginia, or any Virginia law or regulation.”
The legislature previously passed HB1160 and forwarded it to Gov. Bob McDonnell for his signature. Last week, the governor agreed to sign the bill with a minor amendment. On Wednesday, the House of Delegates passed the amended version of the legislation 89-7. Just hours later, the Senate concurred by a 36-1 vote.
Bill sponsor Delegate Bob Marshall (R-Manassas) says that since the legislature passed HB1150 as recommended by the governor, it does not require a signature and will become law effective July 1, 2012.
Several states recently passed resolutions condemning NDAA indefinite detention, but Virginia becomes the first state to pass a law refusing compliance with sections 1021 and 1022.
~ Come on Alabama get on the bandwagon!
“In the 1850s, northern states felt that habeas corpus was so important that they passed laws rejecting the federal fugitive slave act. The bill passed in Massachusetts was so effective, not one single runaway slave was returned south from that state. Today, Virginia joins in this great American tradition,” Tenth Amendment Center executive director Michael Boldin said. “When the federal government passes unconstitutional so-called laws so destructive to liberty – it’s the people and the states that will stand up and say, ‘NO!’ May the other states now follow the lead taken today by Virginia.”
