A Minneapolis man is being charged with criminal sexual conduct after being accused of raping a woman on a bus passing through Crookston Friday. Mohamed Harir Ayanle, 22, was released from the Northwest Regional Correction Center Monday on a $5,000 bond and on the condition that he does not leave Minnesota.
The victim told dispatch that another passenger on the bus threatened her and made her have sex with him. She said that Ayanle said he “had something,” which she believed to be a knife though she never saw a knife, and that was the reason she went with him.

‘Hundreds’ of ‘Soldiers of Hezbollah’ Inside the U.S., Says Homeland Security Chairman [CNS News]
At a Wednesday hearing, House Homeland Security Chairman Pete King (R.-N.Y.) said that “at a minimum” there are hundreds of “soldiers of Hezbollah” inside the United States.
“Now, how many Iranian and Hezbollah terrorists are here already?” said King. “The highly-disciplined soldiers of Hezbollah are trained to lie low for years, or for decades. Those who have gone up against this enemy for our government estimate the number to be at a minimum–at a minimum–in the hundreds.”
At the same hearing, the former chief of operations for the Drug Enforcement Administration testified that Mexican drug cartels are in “very close contact” with Hezbollah, Hamas and al Qaeda.
God’s judgment is at the door. Judgment for what? The rampant sin of this country – both individually and institutionally… by the rich and the poor… by all races and classes… by saved and unsaved people. Sin is supported by law in this country. At some point, God will have enough and the U.S. will be judged using foreign invasions as has happened in the past. If God allowed His chosen people (Israel) to be judged, He will have no problem punishing the U.S. for its sin.
However, there is still time for mass prayer and repentance to take place similar to what happened to Nineveh in Jonah’s day.

Here’s the real story that no one talks about.
The New America Foundation think-tank in Washington says drone strikes in Pakistan have killed between 1,715 and 2,680 people in the past eight years.
The attacks have angered the Pakistani public, since many civilians have been killed in the raids.
Did you know President Obama is killing civilians? And that he has killed approximately 2,000 people?

CIA Payments Linked to Karzai Aide in Corruption Probe
Mohammed Zia Salehi is an aide to Afghan President Hamid Karzai. He is also on the CIA payroll. He was arrested in July and released on Karzai’s behalf.
Ahmed Wali Karzai, brother of the Afghan president, has also been on the CIA payroll. He has been accused of dealing drugs with the Taliban and other tribal warlords.
Why are we dealing with all of this corruption?
The New York Times reported Wednesday that Mohammed Zia Salehi, a key figure in the country’s corruption investigation and an aide to Afghan President Hamid Karzai, is on the CIA payroll.
According to the NYT report, it’s not clear what Salehi does to earn his CIA money or what, if any, involvement the CIA has in Salehi’s allegedly corrupt activities. He was arrested in July but released through Karzai’s intervention. The Afghan president’s brother, Ahmed Wali Karzai, has been on the CIA payroll according to U.S. officials and has been accused of accused of gaining power via the drug trade and making deals with tribal warlords and Taliban fighters.

Regarding the mosque being located at Ground Zero and freedom of religion…
Rights and freedoms are privileges. Those privileges can be removed based upon certain actions. All legal citizens have the right to vote UNTIL they commit as felony. Then the right is removed.
I say a religion should have freedom to worship UNTIL they declare war or coordinate an attack on the United States.
