New evidence suggests ancient Tower of Babel was real

The story of the Tower of Babel is a cyrptic account in Genesis 11:1–9 of a time when everyone on earth spoke the same language. As people migrated east, they settled in the land of Shinar, the general region of ancient Mesopotamia.

Note: Ancient Mesopotamia, widely considered to be one of the cradles of human civilization, was situated within the Tigris–Euphrates river system, in modern days roughly corresponding to most of Iraq plus Kuwait, the eastern parts of Syria, Southeastern Turkey, and regions along the Turkish-Syrian and Iran–Iraq borders.

There in Shinar, the people agreed to build a city and a tower “tall enough to reach heaven” to make a name for themselves. Angered by their hubris, God confounded their speech so that they could no longer understand each other and scattered them around the world. The people stopped building the city, which they called Babel or, in Greek, Babylon.
According to the Book of Genesis, King Nimrod was the original founder of Babel and the great-grandson of Noah.
The remains of Babylon are in present-day Hillah, Iraq, about 53 miles south of Baghdad, comprising a large tell of broken mud-brick buildings and debris, as well as a number of mounds covering an area of about 1.24 mi × 0.62 mi.

A recently-aired documentary on the Smithsonian channel gives compelling evidence that the Tower of Babel may be real (h/t FOTM‘s stlonginus).

The evidence is comprised of:

  • The discovery of a vast structure beneath the remains of Babylon.
  • A privately-owned stone tablet, dating back to the 6th century B.C., which was discovered in Babylon about 100 years ago. The tablet’s significance recently was uncovered by Dr. Andrew George, Professor of Babylonian at the School of Oriental and African Studies, University of London. Inscribed into the tablet are the bas-reliefs of an ancient Mesopotamian stepped tower and the figure of King Nebuchadnezzar II (604–561 BC), as well as the text, “The secret totemic tower of the city of Babylon,” and an account identical to that in Genesis of how the tower was constructed.


By the way, why does the European Parliament building in Strasbourg, France, look so much like the painting of the Tower of Babel by the 16th century painter Pieter Breugel the Elder?

ISIS Fighters in Iraq Killed by Wild Boars

Wild Boar (Sus scrofa), male showing his teeth, Bavaria, Germany, Europe

Bacon got the bast*rds…


Feel good story.
From Newsweek: Three militants loyal to the Islamic State group (ISIS) have been killed by wild boars as they planned to ambush Iraqi tribesmen opposed to the group, according to a local anti-ISIS leader.
At least eight ISIS fighters had reportedly taken cover among dense reeds in Iraq’s al-Rashad region, about 55 miles southwest of Kirkuk, in preparation for a surprise attack on local anti-ISIS tribesman when a herd of wild boars attacked the jihadists on Sunday, killing three. The militants likely disturbed the notoriously short-tempered animals, said Sheikh Anwar al-Assi, a chief of the local Ubaid tribe and head of the group of local tribesmen who took up arms after ISIS took control of the nearby town of Hawija.
“It is likely their movement disturbed a herd of wild pigs, which inhabit the area as well as the nearby cornfields. The area is dense with reeds, which are good for hiding in,” Assi told The Times.
The event was corroborated by local Kurdish fighters who have joined Iran-backed Shiite Muslim militias in attempting to oust ISIS from nearby Hawija. The jihadists’ mutilated bodies were reportedly discovered by refugees fleeing the violence that has beset the war-torn nation. An alliance consisting of Iraqi military, majority Shiite Muslim militias (called Al-Hashd Al-Shaabi), U.S.-led coalition forces and Kurdish units (known as peshmerga) are seeking to drive ISIS out of Iraq, according to Brigadier Azad Jelal, the deputy head of the Kurdish intelligence service in Kirkuk.
“Three fighters from ISIL were near the Peshmerga checkpoint in al-Rashad. They met some feral boars and the boars killed the three fighters,” Jelal told The Telegraph, using an alternative acronym for ISIS.
“Some refugees saw the bodies on the edge of a farm when they were fleeing and they told us. A few days later ISIL started to kill pigs around the area,” he added.

Teacher Gang Raped By 9 Iraqi Immigrants in Vienna Attack

rapefugees
From Express UK: Prosecutors charge the Iraqi men with “abuse of a defenceless person and rape in a very humiliating and agonising way for the victim”.
At the opening of the trial yesterday the court heard how the woman identified as Sabine K. was “blind drunk” when she went with the men to an apartment. Most of them deny the charges but DNA proved that sperm from six of them was found in or on her body.
The court heard how the victim arrived in Vienna on December 28, 2015 to spend the New Year with a female friend in the city. Shortly before midnight on December 31 they wandered into the city centre to join milling crowds celebrating the arrival of 2016 and at 2.00am were seen drinking in a bar-restaurant called Cactus.
Shortly before 3.00am the friend of Sabine noticed she was no longer there and was told by another patron that the men she had been talking with had “taken her away.”
The defendants, aged between 22 and 45, all arrived in Austria between May and December 2015 via the Balkan route. At the time of the attack, five of them had cemented their right to stay, the applications of the other four were still pending.
Judge Petra Poschalko heard how the woman was taken by four of them to an apartment in Vienna’s Rustenschacher Allee where five other men were waiting. Sabine later said she found herself naked on a double bed being assaulted by the men one after the other. Evidence was heard that said she was assaulted in the dark so she could not identify the men, according to her lawyer Karina Fehringer.
After the attacks, which went on for several hours, the victim needed in-patient treatment at a trauma clinic and now is under psychiatric care for post traumatic stress disorder. She had another breakdown at the weekend and was too fragile to be in court to face her attackers.
Only one man, Mohamed Al-A., 31, admitted his role in the rapes and he sobbed in court and said he was “really drunk” on vodka at the time. And he further admitted: “This act is a crime in Iraq.”
He was with co-defendants Nazar Al-J., Mohammed Al-T. and Alaa Al-J. in the Cactus bar who took the victim back to the apartment. The other defendants – Hader Al-A., Mustafa Al-J., Nael Al-J., Marwan Al-J. und Sabah Al-J. – lay in wait for her there. Medical experts testified she was raped multiple times and sodomised.
The victim said she yelled at them, in German: “No, I don’t want this.” Then in English: “Listen to me, just a little bit.” Her attackers conversed only in Arabic.
Alaa Al-J. was said to be the rape ringleader. After it was over Mohammed Al-. escorted her to a toilet in the flat where he took a selfie with her on his mobile phone. Later he and Alaa Al-J. escorted her to a nearby tram stop where they tried to stem her sobbing by saying in English: “Don’t cry.”
After she went to police a tracking app on her mobile phone led officers to the rape scene. The app showed that her ordeal lasted from 4:20am to 6:20am on January 1 2016.
The court heard that with the exception of the man who confessed, none of the others feel guilty. Several denied rape in the face of the DNA evidence. One man claimed that the woman had been “offered” to them by relatives: another that she was a willing participant in whatever took place.
Judge Poaschalko seemed visibly angered at the shifts in their stories throught Tuesday’s hearing. The court resumes again on Thursday and sentencing will be handed down on March 6. She has warned them they face up to 15 years each in jail.

Montvale, New Jersey will not be a sanctuary city, mayor vows

michael-ghassali

Mayor Michael Ghassali


Laws and legal immigration still mean something to some politicians.
From NorthJersey.com: As a Syrian immigrant whose family fled Aleppo in 1980, weeks before hundreds of civilians were killed in a brutal siege, Michael Ghassali knows well the horrors facing today’s refugees.
But as the mayor of Montvale, Ghassali said, his allegiance is to the laws of his adopted country – even those he may personally disagree with. That is why Ghassali has vowed that under his administration, Montvale will not be a sanctuary city.
“I will not be signing any executive orders that will ask our employees to defy federal laws. A mayor should not be advocating the defiance of federal laws,” Ghassali announced in a Facebook post last week that has elicited both praise and condemnation.
The statement was in response to pressure from various advocacy groups that Ghassali said have approached him to declare the borough a safe haven for undocumented immigrants illegal aliens.
President Donald Trump issued an executive order last month suspending travel to the United States from seven Muslim-majority countries and indefinitely barring Syrian refugees from coming into the country. The order has been blocked by an appeals court, and Trump has said he will issue a revised order. But it sparked protests across the country, and local politicians have taken a public position either supporting it or opposing it.
Trump also has called for a crackdown on illegal immigration. On Tuesday, the Department of Homeland Security issued a sweeping set of orders that authorize all agents to enforce the nation’s immigration laws more forcefully, instructing them to identify, apprehend and quickly deport every undocumented immigrant they encounter.
Several North Jersey towns have either approved or are considering resolutions to become sanctuary cities, a term that generally means local police would limit their cooperation with federal immigration enforcement officers.
Prospect Park Mayor Mohamed Khairullah, who is also a Syrian-born immigrant, issued an executive order in January declaring the borough a sanctuary city. “As an immigrant from a country ruled by a dictator, it is important to me that our commander in chief upholds the U.S. Constitution as the law of the land,” Khairullah said last month.
Ghassali recalled in an interview this week his experience entering the country at 15 years old and the hurdles his family faced.
In Syria, his father was a tailor, working hard for a middle-class life for his family of four children. Ghassali remembers always feeling safe in Aleppo, even at night. Nevertheless, the Islamist uprising, revolts against the secular government led mostly by the Muslim Brotherhood, had been brewing in the country since 1976.
“My father was wise enough to know what was going on. He told us, ‘At some point, this will not be a safe place to live.’ And he decided that we should leave,” Ghassali said.
In 1980, members of Ghassali’s family boarded a flight with green cards in hand and headed to New York City, where they had family from his father’s side waiting for their arrival. They settled in Dumont. Ghassali said he became a citizen in 1987.
“I know firsthand the vetting system is intense – it’s always been that way. I don’t know how much more intense it could get,” said Ghassali, a Republican who ran for mayor as an independent.
“I wish the administration spent more time analyzing the current process before issuing such an executive order,” said Ghassali. “They should spend the time to look at the current process before causing havoc among the refugees.”
Ghassali said he has family members who are refugees or have been killed in the war in Syria. “My whole network is either a refugee or has a family or friend who is a refugee. I feel it. It is very personal,” Ghassali said. But, he said, “I have to remove emotions out of this if I want to do my job.”
A close friend of Ghassali’s who attends the same Syriac Orthodox church in Teaneck has been in the country illegally for 15 years, he said. Ghassali said that declaring Montvale a sanctuary city would not change the reality of his friend’s situation. “He’s been scared for 15 years,” Ghassali said. “That doesn’t change when a mayor signs an executive order.”
Ghassali said he hoped his stance was not misconstrued as being against diversity. About one-fifth of Montvale’s approximately 8,000 residents are foreign-born, according to 2015 census. Twenty-two languages are spoken at home, Ghassali said.
Ghassali is married to an Iraqi immigrant. On his block alone, he said, his neighbors hail from India, Pakistan and parts of South America. “Montvale is not against refugees, against immigrants, against diversity,” he said. “We are as diverse as they come.”

Angela Merkel says Europe must take more refugees and Islam 'isn't source of terror'

merkel muslim
Earlier this month, Angela Merkel stated that Germany will offer cash handouts worth millions of pounds for migrants to leave Germany in an effort to silence criticism of her ‘open-door’ border policy. Now this? Proggies…they can never be consistent.
From Daily Star UK: The embattled leader says Europe has an obligation to take displaced people from Syria and Iraq. 
She also said Islam “is not the cause of terrorism” and that combatting extremism needs the cooperation of Muslim countries.
In a wide-ranging speech at a Munich security conference, the German chief also vowed to work closely with Vladimir Putin’s Russia in the fight with ISIS in the Middle East.
Mrs. Merkel has come under fire for taking in up to one million refugees amid security concerns and a string of migrant sex attacks across Germany.
After the Berlin lorry attack at a Christmas market in December, ex-UKIP leader Nigel Farage said events such as that will be “Merkel’s legacy”.
Mrs. Merkel had been a strong critic of Brexit, saying she had “deep regrets” about it. She will go to the polls in September against Social Democrat candidate Martin Schulz, the former European Parliament President.
On Putin, she said Europe’s ties with Russia remained challenging, but it was important to work with them in the fight against Islamist terrorism. She said: “The joint fight against Islamic terrorism is one area where we have the same interests and we can work together.”
Her comments about Islam and refugees follow her criticism of Donald Trump’s travel ban on people from seven Muslim-majority countries.
New US Vice-President Mike Pence was in the audience and reaffirmed the US’ commitment to NATO in a speech of his own.
Germany is under increasing pressure to increase military spending, would do “everything possible” meet a NATO target for spending two percent of economic output on defence by 2024, Merkel told the conference.
Only last week, a student was dragged into woods and raped by a migrant who spoke no English near the campus of Bochum University.

Majority of Europeans support Trump's visa ban

Obama insisted on endangering U.S. national security by bringing in “refugees” and “migrants” from Syria and other Muslim countries despite the FBI’s admission that they don’t have the information needed to properly vett them to screen out terrorists.
On January 27, 2016, President Trump fulfilled his campaign promise of barring terrorists from being brought as “refugees’ into the United States by signing Executive Order: Protecting the Nation From Foreign Terrorist Entry Into the United States.
trumpism
Citing the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA), 8 U.S.C. 1101 et seq., and section 301 of title 3, United States Code, Trump’s executive order lawfully and temporarily suspended granting visas to nationals of seven “countries of particular concern” Iraq, Syria, Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan and Yemen.
The visa ban is temporary because it is a means to an end — in order for the Trump administration to determine and obtain the information needed to properly vett refugees and migrants to screen out terrorists.
The Left accuses Trump’s visa ban of religious discrimination against Islam. But Trump’s temporary visa ban on nationals from those seven countries is not because they are Muslim, but because the foreign-born individuals who have been convicted or implicated in terrorism-related crimes since September 11, 2001 are Muslims — a distinction that eludes the mentally-disordered Left.
Now, a study conducted for Chatham House, the independent Royal Institute of International Affairs in London, has found that the majority of Europeans endorse a similar visa ban for their countries. The researchers are Matthew Goodwin and Thomas Raines of Europe Programme, and University Birmingham Professor of Political Science David Cutts.
From December 12, 2016 to January 11, 2017, a survey was conducted of a nationally representative sample of more than ten thousand adults in 10 EU countries — Austria, Belgium, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Italy, Poland, Spain and the UK. About 1,000 were surveyed in each of the 10 countries, totaling 10,195. Respondents were asked to what extent they agree or disagree with the statement:

“All further migration from mainly Muslim countries should be stopped”.

In their report for Chatham House on February 6, 2017, the clearly dismayed researchers reported their findings point to “an underlying reservoir of public support” of the views of both Trump and Europe’s “radical right-wing parties”. In the authors’ words:

Our results are striking and sobering. They suggest that public opposition to any further migration from predominantly Muslim states is by no means confined to Trump’s electorate in the US but is fairly widespread.

Here are the findings:

  • An average of 55% in the 10 EU countries agreed that all further migration from mainly Muslim countries should be stopped; 25% neither agreed nor disagreed; 20% disagreed.
  • Majorities in 8 EU countries agreed: 71% in Poland, 65% in Austria, 53% in Germany, 51% in Italy,  47% in UK, 41% in Spain.
  • In no country did the percentage that disagreed surpass 32%.
  • Public opposition to further migration from Muslim states is especially intense in Austria, Poland, Hungary, France and Belgium. In each of these countries, at least 38% of adults “strongly agreed” that further migration from mainly Muslim countries should be stopped. “It is also worth noting that in most of these states the radical right is, to varying degrees, entrenched as a political force and is looking to mobilize this angst over Islam into the ballot box, either at elections in 2017 or longer term.”
  • Across Europe, opposition to Muslim immigration is especially intense among retired, older age cohorts; those with a secondary school education; and those living in rural, less populated areas. Notably less opposed are those aged below 30; those with a college degree; and those in cities and metropolitan areas.
  • Support for a ban on more refugees crosses political boundaries but is found more on the right: three-quarters of those who self-classify as on the right of the political spectrum and more than a third of those on the left support a halt.
chatham-house-pollchatham-house-poll1
The Chatham House survey is consistent with other surveys exploring attitudes to Islam in Europe. A Pew survey of 10 European countries in 2016 found that:

  • Majorities of the public in 5 countries had an unfavorable view of Muslims living in their country: Hungary (72%), Italy (69%), Poland (66%), Greece (65%), and Spain (50%) vs. UK (28%), Germany (29%) and France (29%).
  • Widespread perception (median of 59%) in many countries that the arrival of refugees would increase the likelihood of terrorism. This mirrors some attitudes in the US.

The Chatham House researchers conclude that:

While it is true that “people in Europe vastly overestimate the number of Muslims living in their countries . . . these results point to significant and widespread levels of public anxiety over immigration from mainly Muslim states. Many in the mainstream have protested against Trump’s visit but they will also need to focus on how to tackle these widespread public concerns.”

97 companies sue President Trump over temporary ban on immigrants and refugees from dangerous countries

On January 27, 2016, President Trump fulfilled another campaign promise of barring terrorists from being brought as “refugees’ into the United States by signing Executive Order: Protecting the Nation From Foreign Terrorist Entry Into the United States.
The executive order states clearly the problem:

Numerous foreign-born individuals have been convicted or implicated in terrorism-related crimes since September 11, 2001, including foreign nationals who entered the United States after receiving visitor, student, or employment visas, or who entered through the United States refugee resettlement program. Deteriorating conditions in certain countries due to war, strife, disaster, and civil unrest increase the likelihood that terrorists will use any means possible to enter the United States.

“In order to protect Americans, the United States must ensure that those admitted to this country do not bear hostile attitudes toward it and its founding principles,” and by the authority vested in President Trump “by the Constitution and laws of the United States of America” and in adherence with already established laws of the United States — the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA), 8 U.S.C. 1101 et seq., and section 301 of title 3, United States Code — “it is hereby ordered” that the issuance of visas and other immigration benefits to nationals of “countries of particular concern” be suspended.
Those “countries of particular concern” are referred to in section 217(a)(12) of the Immigraton and Nationality Act, 8 U.S.C. 1187(a)(12). These are the Muslim-majority countries of Iraq, Syria, Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan and Yemen.
Why those countries?
Is it because President Trump is picking on a particular religion, Islam?
No.
Those countries are selected  not because they’re Muslim, but because the foreign-born individuals who have been convicted or implicated in terrorism-related crimes since September 11, 2001 are Muslims.
My only quarrel with the visa ban on the 7 countries is that Saudi Arabia is, strangely, not included.
terrorists
Suspending the issuance of visas from certain terrorist-exporting countries is a means to an end — so that the Secretary of Homeland Security, in consultation with the Secretary of State and the Director of National Intelligence, undertake “a review” to determine and obtain the information needed from any country to determine nationals from that country who seek to enter the U.S. as refugees or immigrants are who they say they are and “not a security or public-safety threat.”
In other words, the visa ban on those 7 countries is TEMPORARY.
President Trump’s temporary visa ban executive order has already sparked judges across the country issuing stays on the temporary ban, as well as a lawsuit by 97 companies as amici curiae or “friends of the court”.
In other words, those judges and the 97 companies are against the vetting or screening of immigrants and refugees to ensure they are not terrorists.
Let that thought sink into your head . . . .

Trump nominates “Mad Dog” Mattis for Secretary of Defense

Dr. Eowyn did a blog post on Gen. Mattis back in March 2013, as Obama was purging our military. Read the post Obama regime purges 5th senior military officer: Cmdr of CENTCOM James Mattis.” Now Trump is bringing him back!
mattis-quote2
James Mattis is a retired United States Marine Corps general who last served as the 11th commander of United States Central Command. Mattis retired from the military in 2013 so his nomination will require a waiver of the National Security Act of 1947, which requires a seven-year wait period before retired military personnel can assume the role of Secretary of Defense. Mattis would be the second Secretary of Defense to receive such a waiver, following George Marshall.
Mattis is highly decorated, an experienced veteran, and pulls no punches. Read about his extensive background at Wikpedia.
He’s known for some exceptional quotes, which no doubt will make liberals’ heads explode. Here are some of his best quotes (a few are NSFW):

Actor Daniel Baldwin to those who won't accept Trump win: “Suck it up”

Wonder if Daniel spent Thanksgiving with his Hollyweird brother Alec

Daniel Baldwin

Daniel Baldwin


From Fox News:  Another Baldwin brother is heated up about the election. Daniel Baldwin sent a message to those who have not yet accepted the results of the 2016 presidential election: “Suck it up.”
The 56-year-old told TMZ that those who are not happy with the results should focus their efforts on lobbying to “change the system” instead of complaining about President-elect Donald Trump.
“This guy won. This is the system you have. The Electoral College, checks and balances that were set up that you could possibly lose the popular vote but still carry the day Electoral College-wise,” Baldwin told TMZ.
He added, “Suck it up, pull up your big-boy panties now, because you lost.”
He also compared the election wallowing to those who complained about the Iraq war.
“This is the same thing I said to people who didn’t believe in the war that was going on,” Baldwin said. “I said, you’re going to punk these kids that are over there fighting the war now? You can’t do that… If you don’t like the reasons that we’re over there for the war, then fight the system and fight the government, tell them we don’t wanna be in a war anymore. But you don’t do that to the kids.
This isn’t the first time a Baldwin has chimed in on the election. Stephen Baldwin, a Trump supporter and Alec Baldwin, a Hillary Clinton fan butted heads earlier this year over their preferred candidates. Stephen even went as far as to say he did not like his brother Alec’s Trump impersonation on “Saturday Night Live.”
