A PRAYER FOR WISDOM in Parenting. Jennifer Kennedy Dean. Train up a child in the way he should go, Even when he is old he will not depart from it. – Proverbs 22:6
I raised three sons. All are grown and married with families of their own. Each son has his own unique personality and approach to life. I used to describe my three sons like this (though each has matured into a responsible man): Kennedy always has his ducks in a row. Brantley can’t find his ducks. Stinson doesn’t know there are ducks.

Israel designates Palestinian al-Quds TV station a terror organization

Ariel Harmoni/Ministry of Defense
Defense Minister Avigdor Liberman announced on Monday that he was declaring the Palestinian Al-Quds television network a terrorist organization, prohibiting the outlets operations in Israel henceforth.
“According to up-to-date, reliable, cross-checked and diverse intelligence, the Al-Quds station is a propaganda wing of Hamas, representing a central platform for distributing the terrorist organization’s messages,” Liberman’s office said in a statement.
The decision to blacklist the TV station derived from a Shin Bet security service recommendation and advice from the National Bureau for Economic counter terrorism. The intelligence provided claimed that the channel acts as a propaganda arm of the Gaza-based Hamas group, according to the statement from the defense ministry.
Journalists and cameramen of an affiliated organization who work closely with the Al-Quds channel were summoned for questioning by Israeli authorities on Monday where, according to Haaretz. They were told that a warrant had been issued and that Al-Quds was deemed illegal.
Trump Nominates Brett Kavanaugh for Supreme Court Vacancy
by Aaron Bandler for the JEWISH JOURNAL, July 09, 2018
“The rule of law is our nation’s proud heritage. It is the cornerstone of our freedom. It is what guarantees equal justice,” Trump said. “And the Senate now has a chance to protect this glorious heritage by sending Judge Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court.”
Kavanaugh followed Trump by saying he was “humbled” by the nomination.
“My judicial philosophy is straightforward: a judge must be independent,” Kavanaugh said, adding that a judge must follow the law, not make the law.
“I will always strive to follow the Constitution of the United States and the American rule of law,” Kavanaugh concluded.

President Donald Trump will nominate a Supreme Court justice to replace Anthony Kennedy on Monday night. The mainstream media will brand whomever he picks a “conservative.” This will likely be true, but the media doesn’t treat liberal judges the same way.
Indeed, many mainstream media outlets hailed President Barack Obama’s Supreme Court nominees as moderate — and occasionally even conservative, or at least not “liberal” enough.
“You know, for a Democrat [Sonia Sotomayor] has a pretty conservative record, a very much in the mainstream record,” NPR’s Nina Totenberg declared on PBS’s “Charlie Rose” in July 2009. “In fact, on a lot of criminal law issues, you could say that she’s more conservative than some members of the Supreme Court, including Justice Scalia, perhaps.”
Sotomayor more conservative than Scalia?! Do tell. I’d love to hear about Sonia Sotomayor’s originalist interpretation of the Constitution, and can’t wait to see her fundamentally change her decisions going forward, which is totally going to happen, right? RIGHT?!
Indonesia: Mosque survey finds 41% of Jakarta mosques are “radical,” including many that are state-owned

Imran Ahsan Khan Nyazee, Assistant Professor on the Faculty of Shari’ah and Law of the International Islamic University in Islamabad. In his 1994 book The Methodology of Ijtihad, he quotes the twelfth century Maliki jurist Ibn Rushd: “Muslim jurists agreed that the purpose of fighting with the People of the Book…is one of two things: it is either their conversion to Islam or the payment of jizyah.” Nyazee concludes: “This leaves no doubt that the primary goal of the Muslim community, in the eyes of its jurists, is to spread the word of Allah through jihad, and the option of poll-tax [jizya] is to be exercised only after subjugation” of non-Muslims.
