So I had a long talk with my Dad about the recent sharia law block and lawsuits from CAIR and what it would really mean for the United States.
My dad was born and raised in the country now called Albania. He was born to Muslim parents, and therefore it was the only religion he has ever known. There are not many stories about Islam in Albania, not to the extent of Pakistan, Iran, Iraq, Saudi Arabia, or Afganistan where the majority of the population is Muslim. But he did grow up learning quickly that Islam is not at all what it seems. It teaches hate and violence against virtually all humanity.
It looks appealing to some people due to its culture though it varies with different countries and money. In Albania, for example, the woman who is engaged-to-be-married receives many gifts of jewelry and gold as does her family. There is also money given to the father of the soon to be bride. What most people who convert to Islam fail to realize is the true nature and horrors of it all. Wife-beatings are common and are permitted for any reason. Child brides are a normal custom among Muslims and men often leave their wives as they age in favor of the child brides (some forced into marriage as young as 4-5)...

(Dow Jones Newswire) The Iraqi government approved a deal to buy 18 F-16 multi-role fighters from the U.S., a government spokesman said Wednesday.
"The cabinet has authorized Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki who is also the acting Defense Minister to negotiate the deal with the U.S. side," Ali al-Dabbagh, who is also a state minister, said in a statement after a weekly cabinet meeting.
And then this from PressTV regarding bombings and terrorist attacks
At least 48 people have been killed and 65 others wounded in a car bomb that targeted a funeral ceremony in the northwest of the Iraqi capital, Baghdad.
The explosion took place at around 2 p.m. local time (1100 GMT) on Thursday in Baghdad's predominantly Shia district of Shula when an explosives-laden vehicle exploded near a tent where people were holding a funeral, a Press TV correspondent in Baghdad reported.
At least 48 people, including eleven children, were killed and 65 wounded in the bomb attack. Health officials expect the death toll to rise as some of the wounded are in a critical condition in hospital.
The blast also inflicted extensive damage on surrounding facilities and nearby buildings.
Earlier in the day, a total of six people lost their lives in Baghdad and 21 others were wounded when several bomb attacks rattled through the capital city.
The attacks are the latest in a new spate of deadly bombings that have claimed dozens of lives across war-torn Iraq over the past week.
The terrorist attacks have mainly targeted the majority Shia community and Iraqi security forces.
Sporadic high-profile bomb explosions have raised concerns about a rise in violence in Iraq. They also pose a major challenge to Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki whose coalition government took office last month.

"The only real testimony we have on it is from Sheikh Kabbani who was a Muslim leader during the Clinton Administration, he testified back in 1999 and 2000 before the State Department that he thought over 80 percent of the mosques in this country are controlled by radical imams. Certainly from what I’ve seen and dealings I’ve had, that number seems accurate." Peter King on the Laura Ingraham Show
