Pope Francis used unusually strong language to condemn the actions of Islamists in their continuing campaign against minorities in Iraq on Sunday and called for an end to violence in the name of God. A high-ranking special Vatican envoy is due to leave for northern Iraq on Monday.

In his traditional Sunday blessing, Francis said the news from the country had left him "in dismay and disbelief". Without referring by name to the Islamic State (Isis), whose jihadists are largely responsible for the persecution, the pope deplored reports of "thousands of people, including many Christians, driven from their homes in a brutal manner; children dying of thirst and hunger in their flight; women kidnapped; people massacred; [and] violence of every kind."

He added: "All this gravely offends God and humanity. Hatred is not to be carried in the name of God. War is not to be waged in the name of God."

Iraqi authorities have reported that Isis has kidnapped hundreds of women and girls from the Yazidi religious minority after seizing the north-western town of Sinjar. Up to 100,000 Christians are thought to have fled for their lives towards Iraqi Kurdistan.

In an apparent reference to the US-led air campaign to deliver relief to the civilians fleeing Isis, Francis said: "I thank those who, with courage, are bringing succour to these brothers and sisters, and I am confident that an effective political solution on both the international and the local levels may be found to stop these crimes and re-establish [the rule of] law."

On Friday, the pope named Cardinal Fernando Filoni as his personal envoy to Iraq. Plans are also being made for a meeting in Rome, probably in September, of all the Vatican's diplomatic representatives in the region. The aim is to organise support for those who have been forced to flee the jihadists.

The 68-year-old Filoni is a Vatican heavyweight who was considered a candidate for the papacy in the runup to the election last year at which Francis was chosen.

At an earlier stage in his career, he served for six years as the Holy See's ambassador to Jordan and Iraq during the final stages of Saddam Hussein's regime.

Filoni was among the few foreign diplomats to remain in Baghdad during the bombing of the city by US-led forces in 2003.

The Obumbles Regime is trying to "redistribute" more than wealth. It wants to redistribute social dysfunction to the suburbs. What is happening in Westchester County can happen to anywhere in the US.

'Astorino may challenge Obama on Westchester racial housing bias

On Monday, Astorino, the Westchester County executive, plans to extend the invitation to Obama and Gov. Cuomo to take some time during his scheduled tour of the $4 billion bridge project to visit Westchester communities “in search of any evidence of racial discrimination.”

“The president and the governor can start in the town of New Castle,’’ said Astorino campaign spokesman William O’Reilly, referring to the small, wealthy and largely rural community where Cuomo lives in a home owned by his significant other, celebrity chef Sandra Lee.

“The county executive plans to tell the president,‘Your agency has been torturing Westchester County for five years, trying to make a national example out of it. If you think there’s discrimination here, show it to us, find a village or a town or a city where the zoning is discriminating, and we’ll dissolve it. We can point to eight studies that have been done saying that’s not the case, that the only barriers to home ownership in Westchester are economic, not racial or ethnic,’&#8201;’’ O’Reilly said.

The federal Department of Housing and Urban Development, once headed by Cuomo, has repeatedly charged that Astorino is failing to abide by a 5-year-old agreement requiring Westchester towns — including New Castle — to change allegedly racially discriminatory zoning laws in order to encourage the building of “affordable housing’’ for lower-income residents. It is also holding back $10 million in federal aid as punishment.

What did Westchester, a suburban county do? Did they say no blacks allowed?

No, they don't allow multi-family housing because they prefer it to look more rural than urban. The feds are saying that discriminates against blacks because blacks are more likely to only be able to afford multi-family housing.

Any black family or individual that can afford a large one unit plot of land is able to buy such. but if the feds can undo local zoning to redistribute squallor where it is currently nice, we might as well start calling ourselves "districts" like in the Hungar Games.

It's like oil and water in your car. You have to make sure neither is empty or needs to be changed. Otherwise, you'll break down and have to push the car. Same with common sense. You can't keep ignoring the warning lights telling you to check your engine.

<quoted text>So somehow that changes the "FACTS"? You really are a twisted unit.
That reminds me of a question you run away from.

Why did Obama lie for two weeks covering up the Al Qaeda attack on the United States in Benghazi?
Why did Hillary Clinton lie to Congress, lie to the entire country, and lie to Ty Woods' father standing right in front of Ty Woods' casket?


How did CNN know exactly what the Obama lie would be so they could change their story line to match it just hours before the attack in Benghazi began? Do you think CNN and Obama coincidentally came up with the exact same lie at the same time? Or, was there a conspiracy involving the White House to help Al Qaeda cover up their attack to kill a US ambassador?

<quoted text>It depends on where here is correct?
Have you ever even visited Temecula where the US Census bureau reports that about 1/4 (24.7%) of the city's residents are Hispanic-Latino?
Hah__Looks like Berks County PA is about 18% Hispanic-Latino, 3 times higher than the PA average.
You don't get out much?
"Hispanic-Latino" is not a race, and most classified in that category consider themselves to be white.....

cities like Temecula have many residents with "Hispanic" surnames who have lived in the US for generations, do not speak Spanish, and do not regard themselves as "Hispanic" in any way....

just because you and the Census Bureau are racists does not mean that everyone else is....

Think about that for a minute. How could they insist they KNEW it was a video when the possibility of it being a terrorist attack was always under investigation because they didn't have all the facts?
Any liberal who can explain this glaring inconsistency would be appreciated.
