Mu’ammar al-Qathafi celebrating the ‘birth of Mohammed (PBUH)’ 28 JANUARY 2011.
12th of Rabie al-Awwal:
In Syro-Aramaic, a language that preceded Arabic, the word “Muhammad” isn’t a name but a *title* defined as “The Anointed One/Chosen One”.
of this night:
Bishop FULTAN SHEEN:
“The Holy Qur’an has many passages concerning the Blessed Virgin. First of all, the Holy Qur’an believes in her Immaculate Conception, and also, in her Virgin Birth…..The Holy Qu’ran also has verses on the Annunciation, Visitation, and Nativity. Angels are pictured as accompanying the Blessed Mother and saying, Oh Mary, Allah has chosen you and purified you, and elected you above all the women of the earth. In the 19th chapter of the Holy Qu’ran there are 41 verses on Jesus and Mary. There is such a strong defense of the virginity of Mary here that the Holy Qur’an, in the fourth book, attributes the condemnation of the Jews, to their monstrous calumny against the Virgin Mary.
Mary, then, is for the Muslems the true Sayyida, or Lady. The only possible serious rival to her in their creed would be Fatima, the daughter of Mohammed himself. But after the death of Fatima, Mohammed wrote: ‘Thou shalt be the most blessed of women in Paradise, after Mary.’ In a variant of the text Fatima is made to say; ‘I surpass all the women, except Mary.’ “

On the Occasion of Christmas
Mary had withdrawn into the Temple, where she was visited by the angel Gabriel who brought the glad tidings of a holy son. The Quran states that God sent the message through the angel Gabriel to Mary, that God had honored her among the women of all nations. The angel also told Mary that she would give birth to a pure son, named Isa (Jesus), who would be a great prophet, to whom God would give the Gospel. The angel further told Mary that Jesus would speak in infancy and maturity and be a companion to the most righteous. When this news was given to Mary, she asked the angel how she could conceive and have a child when no man had touched her. The angel replied:
‘Even so: Allah createth what He willeth: When He hath decreed a plan, He but saith to it, ‘Be,’ and it is!” [Holy Qur’an – 3:45-48]
Let’s read what is narrated in the Holy Qur’an:
”Behold! The angels said, ‘Oh Mary! God gives you glad tidings of a Word from Him. His name will be Christ Jesus, the son of Mary, held in honor in this world and the Hereafter, and in (the company of) those nearest to God. He shall speak to the people in childhood and in maturity. He shall be (in the company) of the righteous… And God will teach him the Book and Wisdom, the Law and the Gospel”’ [3:45-48].
The Holy Qur’an, therefore, states that Jesus was created from the act of God’s will. The Quran compares this miraculous creation of Jesus with the creation of Adam, where God created Adam by his act of will (kun-fa-yakun, meaning ”Be and it is.”). According to the Quran, the same answer was given to the question of Zechariah, when he asked how his wife, Elizabeth, could conceive a baby, as she was very old.
The Quran narrates the virgin birth of Jesus numerous times. The Quran states that Mary was overcome by the pains of childbirth. During her agony and helplessness, God provided a stream of water under her feet from which she could drink. Furthermore, near a palm tree, Mary was told to shake the trunk of the palm tree so that ripe dates would fall down and she could eat and be nourished. Mary cried in pain and held onto the palm tree, at which point a voice came from ”beneath her”, understood by some to refer to Jesus, who was yet in her womb, which said, ”Grieve not! Your Lord has provided a water stream under you; And shake the trunk of the palm tree, it will let fall fresh ripe dates upon you. And eat and drink and calm thy mind.” That day, Mary gave birth to her son Jesus in the middle of the desert.
Mary carried baby Jesus back to her people. The Quran goes on to describe that Mary vowed not to speak to anyone that day, as God was to make Jesus, who Muslims believe spoke in the cradle, perform his first miracle. The Quran goes on to narrate that Mary then brought Jesus to the temple, where she was immediately ridiculed by all the temple elders. But Zachariah believed in the virgin birth and supported her. The elders accused Mary of being a loose woman and having touched another man while unmarried. In response, Mary pointed to her son, telling them to talk to him. They were angered at this and thought she was mocking them, by asking them to speak with an infant. It was then that God made the infant Jesus speak from the cradle and he spoke of his prophecy for the first time. He said, which are verses 19:30-35 in the chapter of Mary in the Holy Qur’an:
”He spoke, surely! I am the slave of Allah. He hath given me the scripture and hath appointed me a prophet;
He made me to be blessed wherever I am, and He has charged me with prayer and charity for as long as I shall live.
And (hath made me) dutiful toward her who bore me, and hath not made me arrogant, unblest.
Peace on me the day I was born, and the day I die, and the day I shall be raised alive!
Such was Jesus, son of Mary; (this is) a statement of the truth concerning which they doubt.
It befitteth not (the majesty of) Allah that he should take unto himself a son. Glory be to him! When he decreeth a thing, he saith unto it only: be! And it is.”
According to Islamic texts, Jesus was divinely chosen to preach the message of monotheism and submission to the will of God to the Children of Israel (banī isrā’īl).
”Christ, the son of Mary, was no more than a messenger; many were the messengers that passed away before him. His mother was a woman of truth. They had both to eat their (daily) food. See how God makes His signs clear to them; yet see in what ways they are deluded away from the truth!” [Quran – 5:75].
”When Jesus came with Clear Signs, he said: ‘Now I have come to you with Wisdom, and in order to make clear to you some of the (points) on which you dispute. Therefore, fear God and obey me. God, He is my Lord and your Lord, so worship Him – this is a Straight Way.’ But sects from among themselves fell into disagreement. So woe to the wrongdoers, from the penalty of a Grievous Day!” [Holy Qur’an – 43:63-65].
Muslims believe that Jesus was a precursor to Muhammad, and that he announced the latter’s coming. They base this on a verse of the Quran wherein Jesus speaks of a messenger to appear after him named Ahmad. Islam associates Ahmad with Muhammad, both words deriving from the h-m-d triconsonantal root which refers to praiseworthiness. Muslims also assert that evidence of Jesus’ pronouncement is present in the New Testament, citing the mention of the Paraclete whose coming is foretold in the Gospel of John. Muslim commentators claim that the original Greek word used was periklutos, meaning famed, illustrious, or praiseworthy – rendered in Arabic as Ahmad; and that this was replaced by Christians with parakletos.
Common ground with Christianity
Isa is the son of a virgin named Maryam (”Mary” in English), who is a role model for the faithful women. Isa is a prophet filled with the Holy Spirit [Quran – 2:87] and the Messiah in both religions (but the Christians add that besides having a human nature, he would be God too, which the Quran clearly denies). Isa is the ”word of truth” [Quran – 19:34]. Isa, through God’s power and will, cures the blind and the leper, raises the dead to life and know what is hidden in the hearts [Quran – 3:49]. And Isa will come back at the end of times.
According to Islam, Jesus never died on the cross, nor ever wanted to die on the cross, nor ever was born to die on the cross. Muslims believe that Jesus was sentenced to death, and people thought that he got executed on the cross. The Holy Quran rejects this idea, and claims that it is a false one. Jesus never died on the cross,
nor he ever died for anyone’s sins. Let us look at what the Holy Qur’an says about this issue:
”That they rejected Faith; that they uttered against Mary: A grave false charge;
That they said (in boast): ‘We killed Christ Jesus, The son of Mary, The Messenger of Allah.’ But they killed him not, nor crucified him, but so it was made to appear to them, and those who differ therein are full of doubts, with no (certain) knowledge, but only conjunction to follow, for of a surety they killed him not.
Nay, Allah raised him up Unto Himself; and Allah Is Exalted in Power, Wise.
And there is none of the people of the book (Jews and Christians) But must believe in him (Jesus) before his death; And on the Day of Judgment He (Jesus) will be a witness against them.” [Holy Qur’an – 4:156-159]
LIBYA RAT NEWS:

(PICTURE ABOVE) NATO’s Foreign Ministers meet in Turkey 2015
IS AMERICA LOSING ITS ‘POWER’ OVER EUROPE ?
‘LIBYAN KNIGHT’, informs, and explains in his opinions:
“…Saleh Issa Aquila (Of TOBRUK’s ‘MAJLIS al-Nuwaab‘) did not hesitate to send his representative to Moscow. General Hftar does not hide spins explicit from Russia. He, perhaps, picks up the message dictated, and this saves him, in his similar support, as is in the case with Syria.
The fighter and followers in Tripoli are divided between supporters of dreams, which share a piece of the cake, and his removal from the lists of sanctions; and, between shows read next presenting an offering of settlement.
The OS (UNO’s forceably imposed ‘guardian government’ for Libya) was the last ‘Muslim’ Brotherhood hair that falls-out (so that at-last, they rule). And now, the country is on a ‘Hot Tin-Roof’.
The ‘fall of the West slogans of liberation’ and even the stability of republican-democracy.
They are spring and fall al-Obabil birds, and curiosity and (so-called) ‘friends of Libya’ and scared Sarkozy Nations and the legitimacy and transparency of its envoys.
And cheering turned to the West and critics of Russia’s non-participation in the Odyssey to the West; and, the unbelievers pilgrims to Moscow, individually and collectively.
Success in Russia to convince a lot regionally and internationally as an effective and able to bring about the balance of power, making it the kiss each competitors to the West, or affected by its policies. Moscow received delegations of Iraq and the Kurds in Turkey and before them the benefit of its embassy in Sanaa (YEMEN).
Russia’s success in bringing about a rift within the European system, which has become the difference between them, in a clear events, continued between the US and between the role of the researcher to assess the role of investigating his interests. This is Maabbar, as Vladimir Putin recently said,
“The problem in Europe is its not pursuing an independent foreign policy, as they are have handed over part of their sovereignty to NATO …which is basicly, in the first place, to America.“
Perhaps France and Italy are the two most distant from America and closer to Russia. It seems clear from recent statements by French Foreign Minister and the Defence Minister’s visit to Moscow and published in ‘Le Figaro’, that France, is determined now to being more effectively in the position of Syria and Libya (in coordination with Russia) regardless of America’s approval or not.
The so-called ‘UN Security Council’ calls for TRIPOLI’s militias to provide full support, and support for any assistance requested by the Government of clients (OS) in order to play its role as the ‘legitimate government’ and a single in the country. !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The UN, their ‘negotiating table’ and colonialism
Colonialism is the domain of a nation or a regime, on the territories and peoples outside its right.
‘Knight LIBYAN’, reviews for us, and comments upon, happinings now and of the relevent recent past:
Plane down force of American Marines personal with their weapons ‘Wattaya base’ without any prior coordination and without any formal statement reveals the details of the operation. Vertical plane (COPTER) and dropped off a number of Italian soldiers on board the ‘oil tanker Anwar Libya’ near ‘mullet field’ (in the Western Region) and has searched for two hours and everyone is in silent mode. al-Kaza and Italian Paolo walk after visiting Prairie (CYRENAICA) supervised in Tripoli to form a protection force.
And the absence of full to the owners of positions and ranks and medals whom Sdawa our heads of ‘Dignity’ and the rats’ ‘Dawn Libya’, the ‘Army and Liberation Forces’, as if all their cause Pisces (WHALE MARKET in BENGHAZI) and conflict .. al-Sabri market (such as ‘Dawn Libya’, our praiseworthy ‘Dignity’ troops and goodness and towers were slogans of the great deception).
* Government formed by Léon, who (Gvhm) for a professional contract in Dubai. Then they went all the heroes after his departure. And because they are hypocrites, Allah wanted to unmask them.
Endowed with all the victories, Martin Kòbler, who did not do, but with the planned Western establishment of which was written by Lèon. There came deputies (red line): The members of the Allaotunai (GNC) Conference (launched call) welcomed the Generals (Doom for the MISURATA bulldozers) not later than the leaders (the prohibition of external interference) welcomed the leaders (the establishment of the law of Allah) and cheered leaders (not to tyrants) and sped cities (the spark, steadfastness and knights). And turning everyone from dissidents to Mgpovin Harem Sultan, in the house of obedience .. (Atjtma for treason with modesty).
* Libyan Fighting Group a wave of betrayal and broken covenants and
reviews, under the temptation to deceive ‘the West’ and the ‘Muslim’ Brotherhood, were leading. And I committed all haram.
But today we are finally aware, that they openly used a Trojan horse; and its members began to see nightmares bags Orange allowance. Especially after they discovered the ‘Brotherhood betrayal’ and breach of some cadres, led by Belhadj, who was behind the assassination and the arrest of some of its Brotherhood members.
And detailed reports on the crimes of looting money and murder, torture and contacts with terrorist groups in Iraq, Syria, Egypt and Algeria which ‘applies resolutions of the United Nations’. All that information ready when al-Obabil (birds) may soon come to the accusation table with long wanted lists. All that will change the alliances and enmities; and tomorrow’s roadmap, inevitably, will not be Kaloms .. (awakening in lost time).
* As in 2011, the media was able to draw a compass mind to change slogans instead of thinking about the prohibition of bringing the Crusaders and the betrayal of nations to open their doors to the ‘guardianship’ of subordination by foreign dictations.
Management of the media today, has also changed the compass of reason, as to what the puppet ‘Government of OS’ can and has already achieved under the chaos, instead of thinking about how these choices, [and I choose in the way of insult and humiliation which] blow up the so-called ‘international community’of all their hypocratic slogans of freedom, democracy and expression… which emphasizes the people’s choice for their own regime and not be led by anyone imposing it .. (modern methods in framing and directing the mind thinking).
* As (in 2011), Abdul Jalil came with ‘international support’ for change and his successor Cape slogans peaceful transfer to Zidane and his successors, among fake slogans of ‘development and reconstruction’ (MB), the new OS puppet-regime comes again with slogans ‘to achieve security, peace and reconciliation’. (Multiple logos, names and one death. Aatalmon and stupid to repeat an important lesson. Like a donkey carrying books).
And, through you, dear green honest ...
MEDIA NEWS REPORTING:
‘KNIGHT LIBYAN’, comments:
FIRST, early in 2011, ‘NEWSWISE’: Condi-Rice ‘doctor’ became deputy parliament (boldly). And was selected to the fact the name of the newspaper (intelligently). And managed the professional journalist dialogue (with confidence). And specialized edition hastily Press (perfectly). And supervised by a cell of activists, editors and directors (subtly). And dissemination vendors with laughter from the heart (Bchwi). And circulated by the masses of the two phones and cheerleaders (Baloaid and threat) until the court yard of the local channels and radio stations and seminars intellectuals and preachers fields and screens.
The newspapers (particularly ‘al-Jazeera’) spread like wildfire, because the hearts and minds and souls that want to hear the truth. But the reporting was incompatible with the (facts) ‘al-Viaqra’ and mercenaries and infidelity and collective massacres and aerial bombardment by Israeli aircraft, and leaked Tdoualha all symbols of ’17 February’, but were seen in the presses only the ‘pre-concocted fake’ CIA’s presentation of the ‘Arab Spring’ and even the so-presumed ‘goodness’ of the ‘United Nations and the (purposely falsely named) ‘Friends of Libya’.
When the newspaper was printed and distributed and read and traded. The combination grow up in front of Levy. And chanting for an advisory opinion al-Obabil (birds). And give the coordinates. (Adbhon and both still deny it !)
You are being lied to the newspapers! .. I did not lie.
This is the truth? .. Yes is the nail on the head.
Spring is the reality of style; and the fact is, that ’17 February ethics’ are the sole real values of the West.
This Is the truth, which was one of the main reasons for the arrival of fleets of 28 nuclear state.
Is the truth behind the deaths of tens of thousands of Libyans from the children and families of Tomahawk missiles were to pick up the remaining bags of them in smart bombs and cadres of the armed people among the missing and split and hewn hunted down satellite. And millions displaced between home and tents being imprisoned abroad.
Is the truth that will meet everyone face of God where Anato hopes to Abnon dignity not to blow.
You may forget about it. But have you ever asked yourself what would you say when you stand in front of the truth. Standing in front of the victims and displaced persons and the suffering and oppressed.
You may rest assured your conscience that you did not participate. But did you know that both of the cadre within the newspaper or Mrdd what came in or exploiter of what came in. Or silent on where you Manscher partner in all that blood and tears and suffering.
Haaratk has changed to ‘Dawn Libya’.
But the guilt of Aizul the statute of limitations. And sin Aivhb change the logo. Allah will niot find forgettable the ‘ 1973 Security Council Resolution’. The book Aagadr large nor small but learns them.
Many of the participants died. And the rest will not outdo the Angel of Death. Short life. The money will not take it with you. Authority Sttrkha. Only your business and your words will not benefit you. Are you ready for the question and the account and punishment. Regret it day to Ainf remorse. (Day unjust bite on his hands say I wish I had taken a way with the Prophet. O Welty wish I had not taken a close friend So and so) …

PLANKTON found in space: Sea creatures are discovered living on the exterior of the ISS
Russian space officials confirmed the plankton were living on the ISS
Sea plankton were not carried by the craft as they aren’t native to Baikonur in Kazakhstan, where the Russian modules of the station blasted off
Plankton may have been blown there by air currents, Russia claims
Organisms were able to survive without oxygen in sub zero temperatures
Discovery made during a routine space walk to clean the ISS’ windows
By WILL STEWART IN MOSCOW and JONATHAN O’CALLAGHAN FOR MAILONLINE and SARAH GRIFFITHS FOR MAILONLINE
Traces of plankton and other microorganisms have been found living on the exterior of the International Space Station (ISS), according to Russian space officials.
They claim the plankton were not carried there at launch.
Incredibly, the tiny organisms were found to be able to survive in the vacuum of space despite the freezing temperatures, lack of oxygen and cosmic radiation.
