so why have we been supporting this thug/evil person for so long and better yet, why hasn't he killed himself so that he could go spend eternity with Allah and Mohammed, or is only death and virgins for young people that are deluded. Personally I like the concept that it is Virgins that terrorists are going to meet, but 72 Virginians, that want to deal with them for all eternity. And it wouldn't be the first time that the scripture has been misread. I think the joke is the after years of writing celebate, the monks realized it should have been celebrate.

Muslim Brotherhood leader and Egyptian President Muhammad Morsi is scheduled to meet with President Obama sometime later this Spring. What's on his White House visit request list? Morsi wants Obama to free Omar Abdul Rahman, better known as the Blind Sheikh and the mastermind behind the 1993 World Trade Center attack.

The announcement follows his pledge, during his presidential campaign earlier this year, to free Omar Abdul Rahman. The preacher is currently serving a life sentence and the planned request for his release appears to be gesture, by Mursi, to Gama’a al-Islamiya, a Salafi group.
