Radical Muslim: We drink our enemies’ blood

DUBLIN, Ireland (CNN) — At a recent debate over the battle for Islamic ideals in England, a British-born Muslim stood before the crowd and said Prophet Mohammed’s message to nonbelievers is: “I come to slaughter all of you.”

“We are the Muslims,” said Omar Brooks, an extremist also known as Abu Izzadeen. “We drink the blood of the enemy, and we can face them anywhere. That is Islam and that is jihad.

“These people, ladies and gentleman, have a good look at them. They actually believe if you kill women and children, you will go to heaven,” said one young Muslim who waved his finger at the radicals.

“This is not ideology. It’s a mental illness.”

Crystal ball fails psychic in Mo. kidnap

Montel Williams’ psychic pal Sylvia Browne told the family of missing Shawn Hornbeck he was dead shortly after the Missouri boy vanished – and later allegedly offered to help locate his body for $700 per half hour.

The popular TV clairvoyant appeared on the “Montel Williams Show” in February 2003, four months after Shawn disappeared, and told Pam and Craig Akers she believed their son was “no longer with us.”

Browne, a regular guest on the “Montel” show, apologized for her misfire, exposed first by StopSylviaBrowne.com, a blog dedicated to tracking the psychic’s every blunder.

“I’m terribly sorry that this happened,” she told the Daily News. “But I think my body of work stands by itself. I’ve broken case after case.”

“I think it’s just cruel to jump on this one case in which I was wrong,” she added defensively. “I’ve said thousands of times I’m not God.

Scriptures Removed from School’s Restroom

HOPKINSVILLE, Ky. (AP) – Bible verses painted in a Western Kentucky school restroom to cover up graffiti have been removed after a parent complained to school officials.

Dr. Bob Lovingood, the superintendent of Christian County Public Schools, directed that the Scriptures be covered up last week, the Kentucky New Era of Hopkinsville reported.

A parent had complained to Lovingood, saying the Scriptures in a Christian County Middle School girls’ restroom violated students’ constitutional rights.

The school’s principal, Larry Cavanah, did not protest.

“I admire people who stand up for their faith,” he said. “But the law is very clear. You can’t promote one religion over another.”
