Two Young Iranian Christian Women in Notorious Evin Prison.

On March 5th 2009, two Iranian Christian women, Miss Marzieh Amirizadeh Esmaeilabad (30), and Miss Maryam Rustampoor (27), were arrested by the Iranian security forces. Their only crime is that they are committed Christians who follow the teachings of Jesus. They are being unfairly labeled as ‘anti-government activists’, because of the hostility of the government towards practising Christians...40 Days of Prayer and Fasting for Iran.

Taliban Beating Girl.
Luang Prabang, Laos.

A concerned reader passed this along. Gateway Pundit posted commentary and a video link of Taliban savages flogging a girl in public. I recommend viewing this disturbing video. While watching, one can only dream of a bunch of U.S. Marines bursting in to confront these savages man to man. Please watch the video on Gateway Pundit -- Where Hope Finally Made a Comeback -- and spread the link far and wide. Michael Yon.

American Guns and Mexicans.

A Picture for You.
Luang Prabang, Laos

The sun had already set when I settled the bill at l’Elephant and walked up the darkening street away from the Mekong. This small town with French ambiance and Asian culture is calming, very calming compared to the wars...Michael Yon online.

More Pictures for You.
Chiang Mai, Northern Thailand.

This morning some monks performed a ritual under a tree near my door. I did not want to intrude upon their tranquility with a camera, so I modestly enjoyed the moment, knowing that in just a few days I would walk into another, very different land...Michael Yon online.

Obama Youth Brigade: Church Attendance Forbidden.
By Jonas Clark

...The Bill would forbid any student in the brigade to participate in “engaging in religious instruction, conducting worship services, providing instruction as part of a program that includes mandatory religious instruction or worship, constructing or operating facilities devoted to religious instruction or worship, maintaining facilities primarily or inherently devoted to religious instruction or worship, or engaging in any form of religious proselytization.” That means no church attendance or witnessing...Again, is this what America voted for?
