Why is Islam so violent?
Why is Islam so violent?
‘Christian'(?) SJW’s will be the left’s Taliban in America. No good will come of this. I can see it now: Tree-huggers for Jesus. They will claim the moral high ground while actually forcing their ‘beliefs’ (read Socialist feelings) on everyone that has any claim of being religious. Instead of gentle persuasion, there will be lawsuits, marches, riots, and all forms of intimidation.
Are these cupcakes stupid enough to threaten or carry out violence to get their way? If so, that is some serious stupid. Better to stick with holding their breath and having tantrums.
When things seem darkest.
The Black Hole
“My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness” (2 Corinthians 12:9).
On February 20, 1962, at 9:47 A.M., the spacecraft Friendship 7 rose on a pillar of fire, piloted by lone astronaut John Glenn. Leaving the coast of Florida far behind, the space capsule orbited the earth three times, traveling 81,000 miles in less than four hours. As the craft began its descent from space, mission controllers in Houston received a warning signal. A sensor indicated that the capsule’s heat shield was in danger of detaching. If the heat shield came loose during reentry, the capsule would burn like a meteor–and John Glenn would die.
Because radio waves cannot penetrate plasma, the spacecraft experienced a total communications blackout–what astronauts and mission controllers call a “black hole”.
The minutes crawled by and the suspense mounted in the…

Interesting Analysis From Active Self Protection
I’ve watched about 5,000 gunfights at this point, and the patterns that emerge are pretty clear. Some thoughts you might want to consider that I don’t think that the training community really wants to hear:
1. Most gunfights aren’t entangled gunfights. Empty-handed skills are important, but very rare once the gun comes out. They’re necessary for LE more than CCW, by a long shot. For CCW, empty-handed skills are critical for the 80% of assaults that don’t rise to the level of deadly force response. So go to your martial arts training.
2. Reloads are almost vanishingly insignificant factors in gunfights. I have seen precisely 2 reloads in a real gunfight that weren’t on-duty LEO. And neither of those affected the outcome of the fight. I have seen about 7 or 8 where a higher capacity firearm or the presence of a reload might…

Always be learning and practicing.
The great thing about life is that you gain experiences. It could be that you enjoyed a camping trip last summer, or playing 5-a-side soccer every Tuesday night. But while these are often seen as normal everyday experiences when taken at face value, more often than not they can double up as survival skills; it is just a matter of looking at them from a slightly different angle.
Think about it. Camping helps you understand how to live in the great outdoors and soccer improves your fitness; both of which would be highly sought after skills when survival instincts kick in. It is just a matter of understanding what skills and experiences you have, and how you can transfer them to another area of your life.
All too many people believe they wouldn’t survive in a state of emergency because they don’t have the skillset…

Take care of yourselves, ladies. We need you.
By Joe – The Prepper Journal
In a perfect world, one would like to think that when disaster strikes, people would rush to help and support each other through it. And while people certainly will, such catastrophes unfortunately sometimes bring out the worst in many people as well. And these opportunistic predator types don’t target strapping he-men either. They’ll be looking for what they think are vulnerable victims; the elderly, the disabled, and women.
While in these more enlightened times few people still think of women as the “weaker sex”, most men still retain some advantages in physical height and strength.
Fortunately, there are a number of self-defense tips and techniques that can level that playing field and allow women to protect themselves and those that they are responsible for protecting. Some of them involve an outlay of money, some involve exercise, some involve surprisingly simple preparation, but all of…
