Twas the month before Christmas
When all through our land,
Not a Christian was praying
Nor taking a stand.
Why the PC Police had taken away
The reason for Christmas - no one could say.
The children were told by their schools not to sing
About Shepherds and Wise Men and Angels and things.
It might hurt people's feelings, the teachers would say
December 25th is just a ' Holiday '.
Yet the shoppers were ready with cash, checks and credit
Pushing folks down to the floor just to get it!
CDs from Madonna, an X BOX, an I-Pod
Something was changing, something quite odd!
Retailers promoted Ramadan and Kwanzaa
In hopes to sell books by Franken & Fonda.
As Targets were hanging their trees upside down
At Lowe's the word Christmas - was no where to be found.
At K-Mart and Staples and Penny's and Sears
You won't hear the word Christmas; it won't touch your ears.
Inclusive, sensitive, Di-ver-is-ty
Are words that were used to intimidate me.
Now Daschle, Now Darden, Now Sharpton, Wolf Blitzen
On Boxer, on Rather, on Kerry, on Clinton !
At the top of the Senate, there arose such a clatter
To eliminate Jesus, in all public matter.
And we spoke not a word, as they took away our faith
Forbidden to speak of salvation and grace
The true Gift of Christmas was exchanged and discarded
The reason for the season, stopped before it started.
So as you celebrate 'Winter Break' under your 'Dream Tree'
Sipping your Starbucks, listen to me.
Choose your words carefully, choose what you say
Shout MERRY CHRISTMAS, not Happy Holiday!
Please, all Christians join together and wish everyone you meet
Christ is The Reason for the Christ-mas Season!
I've been wondering when this would happen. I see, now, that it has started. Conservatives at large, and especially the zealots, are about to see what it's like to have someone preaching (the opposite of their belief) at them. It is only fair, but they won't take it that way. It will become an outright battle over religious freedom; 'Satan' attacking them.
This is identical to the zealot on zealot (Muslim on Christian) battle that was created (also) by Christians not realizing that religion is a personal thing and not respecting the 'right' of others to be left alone in their beliefs.
So much talk, today, among Christians, fails to acknowledge that other people, even in other religions, have been finding happiness and wisdom for centuries. Their (Christian) insistence that only Christians are morally 'good' and 'wise' has brought us to this point, where the other side is now, justifiably, fighting back.
SEE THE CANDIDATES ANSWER THE QUESTION.
I guarantee you some will skirt a direct answer and some ( worth their weight in gold) will give a direct answer that says "THEY BELIEVE MARRIAGE IS BETWEEN A MAN AND A WOMAN. !
Transcript to Geert Wilders’ speech at the David Horowitz Freedom Center’s 20th Anniversary Restoration Weekend.
It is always a pleasure to be in the United States. And it is an honor to be at Restoration Weekend again. Especially at this moment when a new Congress and a new majority in the Senate are preparing to lead this great country and change it for the better.
I am a politician from Europe. I am a member of the House of Representatives in the Netherlands and the leader of the Party for Freedom, the leading party in the Dutch opinion polls today.
Before I continue, let me tell you something about my life as a European politician.
I am not a President, nor a Governor, nor even a member of Cabinet, just a member of Congress. For over ten years now, I have been living under 24/7 police protection. I lived with my wife in army barracks, prison cells and safe houses until this very day, just to be safe.
Wherever I go, armed policemen accompany me to protect me against Islamic jihadis. Al Qaida, the Taliban, ISIS and many others threatened to kill me because I tell the truth about Islam and speak out against the Islamization of our free Western societies.
In Europe we have made a terrible mistake. During the past decades, our politicians foolishly allowed millions of Islamic immigrants to settle within our borders. Everywhere the Islamic culture was welcomed as an enrichment. Nowhere was the demand made that the immigrants assimilate.
Not a single European leader had the guts to state the obvious and tell the truth: Our Western culture based on Christianity, Judaism and Humanism, is far superior to the Islamic culture and immigrants have to adopt our values.
And now, we in Europe are paying the price for this folly. Islam is eating away our Judeo-Christian and humanist civilization and replacing it with intolerance, hatred and violence. And our so-called leaders allow it.
25 years ago, the Berlin Wall fell and the Iron Curtain was dismantled. Thanks to President Ronald Reagan, America’s greatest and best President ever, the totalitarian ideology of Communism was defeated in Europe and my continent was liberated. But now another totalitarianism has nestled itself in the heart of Europe.
Last Summer, my home town, The Hague, witnessed scenes which brought back memories of the darkest period in our history, the Nazi era. Sympathizers of the Islamic State paraded in our streets. They carried swastikas, they carried the black flags of the Islamic State. They shouted “Death to the Jews” and “Oh Jews, the army of Mohammed is coming for you”. In the streets of The Hague in broad daylight. And instead of rounding up these hatemongers, the Dutch authorities did nothing.
When we in Europa warn against Islam, the authorities call it hate speech and bring us to court. But when the grim forces of hatred march down our streets, the police look on and do not interfere. It is a disgrace. It is a scandal. It is intolerable.
Islam is waging war against the free West. Only fools can deny it. The Islamic State has declared war on us. We have already had our share of beheadings in Europe. And it has started here, too.
America and its allies are currently bombing the Islamic State in Syria and Iraq. Excellent. My party supports this offensive. I am glad that Dutch and American F16s participate in it and that our two nations stand shoulder to shoulder in this endeavor. We should liquidate Abu Bakr Al-Bagdadi and the other criminals who are leading the Islamic State.
But we have to do more than that. Far more important than fighting Islamic State abroad, is the fight to preserve our own security in our own countries. In the Netherlands, in America, in Canada, in Australia, in all the other European and Western countries. It is our homes that we must protect first and foremost. And we are not doing that.
Recently, the Dutch authorities prevented over 50 jihadis to leave our country, when they attempted to go to Syria to fight for the Islamic State. Their passports were seized. But they were sent home instead of jailed. Can you believe it? These criminals now freely walk our streets and make them unsafe.
The jihadis who last month murdered soldiers in Canada were also people whom the authorities had previously prevented to leave for Syria. What I suggest is that we either detain every jihadi or let them leave and never return. Once you’re out, you’re out!
My friends, let us be brave. That is what we must do. That is our duty.
Let me ask you: Do our leaders tell us the truth? Unfortunately not. They even lie to us.
Everyday, we hear them repeat the sickening mantra that Islam is a religion of peace. Whenever an atrocity is committed in the name of Islam, whenever someone is beheaded in Syria or Iraq, Barack Obama, David Cameron, my own Dutch Prime Minister and many of their colleagues rush to the television cameras to tell the world that it has nothing whatsoever to do with Islam. How stupid do they think we are?!
The Koran is full of verses such as sura 47 verse 4: “When ye meet the unbelievers, smite at their necks and cause a bloodbath among them.” How much more Islamic do you want it, Mr. Obama?
With every new terrorist crime, with every new attack, with every new beheading, it becomes clear to ever more people what the true nature of Islam is. With every Islamic assault on our values, more and more people realize that Islam wants to conquer the world, that it is prepared to terrorize, kill or enslave anyone who refuses to submit. And that it is ready to commit the biggest atrocities to achieve this goal.
Of course – I repeat it wherever I go – of course, there are many moderate Muslims. I believe in moderate people, but I do not believe in a moderate Islam. There is only one Islam – the Islam of the Koran, the Hadith and the life of Muhammad, who was a terrorist and a warlord. But even though there are many moderate Muslims, it is wrong to think that the moderates are a majority. They are not.
This week, a terrifying poll was published in my country. We already knew that three quarters of all the Muslims in The Netherlands say that Dutch Muslims who go and fight in Syria are heroes. Can you believe it? Heroes!
But now it appears that 80% of our Turkish youths do not consider it wrong to use violence against non-believers. And they also support the armed combat of Hamas against our ally Israel – the only democracy in the Middle East. My friends, we cannot tolerate within our borders extremists who not only want to destroy our nations but also the Jewish homeland.
We stand with Israel. We defend Israel. Israel is one of us. We are Israel. If Israel falls, the West falls.
A few years ago, I called on Muslims to liberate themselves from the yoke of Islam, to choose for freedom. I wholeheartedly support Muslims who love freedom. So, I told them “Free yourselves. Leave Islam.” And I still stand by this appeal. But this does not blind me to the terrible reality that we are facing today.
The day before yesterday, there was a quarrel in our parliament in The Netherlands. That is nothing remarkable of course. As you know, Congressmen quarrel all the time. They do it here, they do it even in my country. They do it everywhere. But this time something extraordinary happened.
We had one Dutch Congressman, a Turk, threatening another – a Morrocan – shouting “May Allah punish you!” And that is not all. They also demanded special washing rooms for Muslims in Parliament and they do not accept being contradicted by female members of Congress.
That is the parliament of the Kingdom of the Netherlands today. Politicians invoking Allah, threatening each other with Islamic curses, demanding special washing rooms, and treating women as inferior beings. Meanwhile the Dutch public prosecutor is going after me again.
You may have heard that three years ago, I was taken to court on hate crime charges. A court case that lasted almost 2 years. Fortunately, I was acquitted on all charges. But now, they want to bring me to court again. They do not see Islam or jihadis as a problem; they see me as the problem.
They try to silence the messenger. But they will never succeed. Because I will always speak out and tell the truth about Islam. We will never be silent or silenced.
Because we love our country. Because we love our freedom. Because we believe that without liberty, life is not worth living.
We celebrate life; jihadis celebrate death.
My friends, when politicians become appeasers of evil, the people must speak. This is why I have established the International Freedom Alliance IFA. It is an international organization to fight for freedom and oppose Islam. Here in America, in Europe, in Israel, in Canada, in Australia, everywhere in the free world. IFA aims to be a network of resistance in all the countries threatened by Islam.
Our mission is to stop all immigration from Islamic countries, to stimulate voluntary remigration of Islamic people, and to expel criminals and jihadis. Our mission is to preserve and save our Judeo-Christian civilization and values.
Because there is nothing more precious than liberty and freedom. There is a path we will never choose, and that is the path of submission. We are neither prepared to collaborate with evil, nor to appease it. We must shout this so loud that even President Obama and political leaders all over the West will hear it.
Let us cry a river for every innocent victim of the Islamic State, for every poor girl abducted by Boko Haram in Nigeria, for every Jew, Christian, Yezidi persecuted in the Islamic world. But let us make sure that no-one will ever have to cry for our children. No-one. Never!
My friends, we have a duty. We are the torchbearers for freedom. We are the torchbearers for a civilization that is far superior to any other civilization on earth. We are the torchbearers for a better future – a future without Islamic intolerance and violence. As you sing so proudly in your beautiful national anthem, your country, the great America, it is “the land of the free, the home of the brave.” So, be brave, America, and keep your land free!
Avoid all the mistakes Europe made. Protect America against Islam. Stop the immigration from Islamic countries. Go forth with courage. Keep the light of liberty shining. Save freedom! Save America.
On November 16, 2014 the Islamic State released a 16-minute video that displayed the severed head of 26-year-old former U.S. Army Ranger Peter Kassig. The video was characteristically different than the four previous Islamic State beheading videos of American and British hostages by the man known as Jihadi John. Although there have been many previous videos of mass beheadings by various al Qaeda-linked groups and Islamic State militants, this film is unique in content and quality.
On November 16, 2014 the Islamic State released a 16-minute video that displayed the severed head of 26-year-old former U.S. Army Ranger Peter Kassig. The video was characteristically different than the four previous Islamic State beheading videos of American and British hostages by the man known as Jihadi John. Although there have been many previous videos of mass beheadings by various al Qaeda-linked groups and Islamic State militants, this film is unique in content and quality. The Islamic State is the first terrorist group to film and stage a formalized ritual mass beheading. Shot in high definition, slickly produced and edited with Hollywood precision, 19 jihadists simultaneously behead 19 Syrian air force pilots and military officers in a ceremonial ritual execution.
Prior to the ritual mass murders the first half of the video is the usual propaganda that provides justification for the violence. The video opens with images of a map of the world graphically indicating the Islamic State’s goals of world domination. The title that appears in segments throughout reads “Although the disbelievers dislike it.” The first 4 ½ minutes is a history of the Islamic State with tributes to its fallen leaders beginning with Abu Musab al Zarqawi, the father of modern beheading. There are images of alleged victims of American airstrikes, including dead children to evoke hatred and clips of Islamic State battles to demonstrate that the jihadist militants are the heroic good guys. This is all a prelude to the featured segment.
At exactly 8 minutes, halfway through the video, the Islamic State ritual begins. Syrian military personnel each accompanied by a jihadist militant are marched through the desert, led by Jihadi John. The militants are dressed in camouflage uniforms with black head coverings but their faces are not concealed. The Syrian soldiers are dressed in dark blue. Jihadi John is dressed in his usual black uniform with his face covered. The ritual procession continues with each jihadist taking a black handled knife out of a wooden box that contains the ceremonial weapons. The footage is very dramatic and powerful, zooming in with slow motion visual effects and melodramatic sounds as each blade is taken from the box. The ritual procession continues until the jihadists file into a formal line with nine on each side of Jihad John and their victims on their knees in front of them.
The jihadists hold their knives in their right hand and their victims in their left. The ritual execution begins with a reading of offenses by Jihad John who also has a Syrian soldier in front of him. Jihad John begins the ritual execution by insulting and threatening President Obama:
To Obama, the dog of Rome. Today we are slaughtering the soldiers of Bashar and tomorrow we will be slaughtering your soldiers. And with Allah’s permission we will break this final and last crusade. And the Islamic State will soon, like your puppet David Cameron said, begin to slaughter your people in your streets.
He points the knife at the camera during the threats to America. Then there is silence as the camera pans over the faces of the men who know they are about to suffer a horrible death and the faces of the executioners who are about to pledge their allegiance in sacrificial blood. Dramatic images and sound effects portray the moment as a sacred solemn rite. The camera fades to black and appears with Jihad John signaling with one word for the ritual killing to commence.
The victims are immediately pushed to the ground, the camera keeps fading in and out of black in-between the cutting of throats, with the loud sound of hearts beating in the background. In one of the most inconceivable mass murders ever committed, 19 men are simultaneously beheaded at one time by 19 other men. The camera returns to focus on Jihadi John. Of the four previous videos this is the first time we ever see him actually kill anyone, and it is obvious that he has experience. As he is cutting through the carotid artery the sound of blood hitting the ground is exaggerated adding to the horror. Then the culmination of the ritual killing and the most disturbing act in the entire film occurs when Jihadi John pulls his knife out of the throat of his victim and looks directly at the camera while exposing the partially decapitated neck. The look in Jihadi Johns eyes is chilling; pure, unadulterated feral bloodlust. Then the camera in fast motion displays Jihad John pounce on his victim in a wild animal movement to finish the decapitation. The camera then pans over all of the soldiers completing their beheading and zooms in on a large stream of blood.
The ritual ends with each soldier holding his bloodstained knife standing above his sacrificial victim, whose heads are placed on the center of their backs. The camera then shows the faces of the jihadist executioners, all from different countries, a multicultural mass murder team. They are somber and serious, not laughing or desecrating the bodies, demonstrating how a warrior should behave during and after the kill. Then as the camera slowly pans over images of the beheaded men a voiceover from Islamic State’s leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi in Arabic says, “Know that we have armies in Iraq and an army in Sham of hungry lions whose drink is blood and play is carnage.” After viewing the ritual murders that is an apt description.
The next segment, also titled “Although the believers dislike it,” demonstrates how many individuals and groups from around the world have pledged allegiance to the Islamic State. The final segment at the 14:30 mark opens with the disarticulated head of American Peter Kassig at the feet of Jihadi John. The camera pans up Jihad John’s body and he makes the following statement in English:
This is Peter Edward Kassig, a U.S. citizen of your country. Peter, who fought against the Muslims in Iraq while serving as a soldier under the American army, doesn’t have much to say. His previous cell mates have already spoken on his behalf.’ But we say to you Obama … you claim to have withdrawn from Iraq four years ago. We said to you then that you are liars, that you have not withdrawn and that if you had withdrawn that you would return, even if after some time.’You would return. Here you are. You have not withdrawn. Rather, you hid some of your forces behind your proxies and withdrawn the rest. Your forces will return, greater in number than they were before.’You will return and your proxies will not benefit you.’And we also remind you of the haunting words that our Sheikh Abu Musab al-Zarqawi told you. The spark has been lit here in Iraq and its heat will continue to intensify by Allah’s permission until it burns the crusader army in Dabiq. ‘And here we are, burying the first American crusader in Dabiq. Eagerly awaiting for the remainder of your armies to arrive.
The video ends with the classic image of the jihadist carrying a large Islamic State flag across the land. Dabiq is a highly symbolic location which has historical and religious significance for Islam. The Islamic State has designated the place for the “Final Hour” where Armageddon will begin in an Islamic apocalyptic tradition that designates the West as modern-day Romans. That is why Jihadi John referred to president Obama as the dog of Rome.
This video goes way beyond just propaganda and psychological warfare — it is the documentation of an Islamist ceremonial ritual mass murder. For the jihadist executioners it was an initiation ritual, a somber rite of passage that grants them status and honor as Mujahideen warriors. As a recruitment tool it is a tour de force, a murder masterpiece that will resonate with young men around the world. This video will recruit more soldiers for the Islamic State, incite lone wolves and inspire more beheadings in Western countries than any of the others that preceded it. Unlike the unsophisticated beheading videos that involve laughter and body desecration that diminishes the sanctity of the act, it elevates beheading to a ceremonial rite of purity that distinguishes it from accusations of barbarism.
The video also functions as proof of death of Peter Kassig and proof of life of Jihadi John who reportedly had been injured in a U.S.-led air strike. Significantly there is no new victim displayed at the end of this video as in the prior four. That is because the Islamic State has successfully sent its message. They no longer need to do their own dirty work. They have inspired lone wolves all over the world to continue their beheading tradition. The threat in this video that “tomorrow they will be slaughtering American soldiers” should be taken very seriously. The Islamic State has made good on every threat to murder hostages. This video should be viewed as a preview of what they intend to do. For example, if the Islamic State breaches the American Embassy in Baghdad they are going to make the Fall of Saigon look like a garden party. Instead of Syrian pilots it will be American Marines ritually murdered and filmed.
President Obama’s response was that this incident was “pure evil by a terrorist group.” How large does the Parents of Beheaded Americans Club have to get before President Obama will use the words “Islamic terrorists”? There should be no doubt that these murders are done in the name of Islam and for the honor of the Prophet Muhammad, whom they are emulating. Beheadings are ritual expressions of authentic Islam and the Islamic State has turned them into Hollywood blockbusters.
April 19, 1775, should be regarded as important a date to Americans as July 4, 1776. It’s a shame that we don’t celebrate it as enthusiastically as we do Independence Day. It’s even more shameful that many Americans don’t even remember what happened on this day back in 1775. For the record, historians call this day, “Patriot’s Day.” More specifically, it was the day that the shot was fired that was heard ’round the world. It was the day America’s War for Independence began.
Being warned of approaching British troops by Dr. Joseph Warren, Pastor Jonas Clark and his male congregants of the Church of Lexington (numbering 60-70) were the ones that stood with their muskets in front of the Crown’s troops (numbering over 800), who were on orders to seize a cache of arms which were stored at Concord and to arrest Sam Adams and John Hancock (who were known to be in the area, and who had actually taken refuge in Pastor Clark’s home).
According to eyewitnesses, the king’s troops opened fire on the militiamen almost without warning, immediately killing eight of Pastor Clark’s parishioners. In self defense, the Minutemen returned fire. These were the first shots of the Revolutionary War. This took place on Lexington Green, which was located directly beside the church-house where those men worshipped each Sunday. Adams and Hancock were not taken. They owed their lives to Pastor Clark and his brave Minutemen–albeit eight of those men gave their lives protecting Adams and Hancock.
According to Pastor Clark, these are the names of the eight men who died on Lexington Green: Robert Munroe, Jonas Parker, Samuel Hadley, Jonathan Harrington, Jr., Isaac Muzzy, Caleb Harrington, and John Brown, all of Lexington, and one Mr. Porter of Woburn.
By the time the British troops arrived at the Concord Bridge, hundreds of colonists had amassed a defense of the bridge. A horrific battle took place, and the British troops were routed and soon retreated back to Boston. America’s War for Independence had begun!
Yes, ladies and gentlemen, these two elements of American history are lost to the vast majority of historians today: 1) it was attempted gun confiscation by the British troops that ignited America’s War for Independence, and 2) it was a pastor and his flock that mostly comprised the “Minutemen” who fired the shots that started our great Revolution.
With that thought in mind, I want to honor the brave preachers of Colonial America–these “children of the Pilgrims,” as one Colonial pastor’s descendent put it.
It really wasn’t that long ago. However, with the way America’s clergymen act today, one would think that preachers such as James Caldwell, John Peter Muhlenberg, Joab Houghton, and Jonas Clark never existed. But they did exist; and without them, this country we call the United States of America that would not exist.
Caldwell was a Presbyterian; Muhlenberg was a Lutheran; Houghton was a Baptist; and no one really seems to know what denomination (if any) Jonas Clark claimed, although one historian referred to Clark as a Trinitarian and a Calvinist. But these men had one thing in common (besides their faith in Jesus Christ): they were all ardent patriots who participated in America’s War for Independence, and in the case of Jonas Clark, actually ignited it.
James Caldwell was called “The Rebel High Priest” or “The Fighting Chaplain.” Caldwell is most famous for the “Give ’em Watts!” story.
During the Springfield (New Jersey) engagement, the colonial militia ran out of wadding for their muskets. Quickly, Caldwell galloped to the Presbyterian church, and returning with an armload of hymnals, threw them to the ground, and hollered, “Now, boys, give ’em Watts!” He was referring to the famous hymn writer, Isaac Watts, of course.
The British hated Caldwell so much, they murdered his wife, Hannah, in her own home, as she sat with her children on her bed. Later, a fellow American was bribed by the British to assassinate Pastor Caldwell–which is exactly what he did. Americans loyal to the Crown burned both his house and church. No less than three cities and two public schools in the State of New Jersey bear his name.
John Peter Muhlenberg
John Peter Muhlenberg was pastor of a Lutheran church in Woodstock, Virginia, when hostilities erupted between Great Britain and the American colonies. When news of Bunker Hill reached Virginia, Muhlenberg preached a sermon from Ecclesiastes 3 to his congregation He reminded his parishioners that there was a time to preach and a time to fight. He said that, for him, the time to preach was past and it was time to fight. He then threw off his vestments and stood before his congregants in the uniform of a Virginia colonel.
Muhlenberg later was promoted to brigadier-general in the Continental Army, and later, major general. He participated in the battles of Brandywine, Germantown, Monmouth, and Yorktown. He went on to serve in both the US House of Representatives and US Senate.
Joab Houghton was in the Hopewell (New Jersey) Baptist Meeting House at worship when he received the first information regarding the battles at Lexington and Concord. His great-grandson gives the following eloquent description of the way he treated the tidings:
“[M]ounting the great stone block in front of the meeting-house, he beckoned the people to stop. Men and women paused to hear, curious to know what so unusual a sequel to the service of the day could mean. At the first, words a silence, stern as death, fell over all. The Sabbath quiet of the hour and of the place was deepened into a terrible solemnity. He told them all the story of the cowardly murder at Lexington by the royal troops; the heroic vengeance following hard upon it; the retreat of Percy; the gathering of the children of the Pilgrims round the beleaguered hills of Boston; then pausing, and looking over the silent throng, he said slowly, ‘Men of New Jersey, the red coats are murdering our brethren of New England! Who follows me to Boston?’ And every man in that audience stepped out of line, and answered, ‘I!’ There was not a coward or a traitor in old Hopewell Baptist Meeting-House that day.” (Cathcart, William. Baptists and the American Revolution. Philadelphia: S.A. George, 1876, rev. 1976. Print.)
Jonas Clark was pastor of the Church of Lexington, Massachusetts, on April 19, 1775, the day that British troops marched on Concord with orders to arrest Sam Adams and John Hancock, and to seize a cache of firearms. It was Pastor Clark’s male congregants who were the first ones to face-off against the British troops as they marched through Lexington. When you hear the story of the Minutemen at the Battle of Lexington, remember those Minutemen were Pastor Jonas Clark and the men of his congregation.
On the One Year Anniversary of the Battle of Lexington, Clark preached a sermon based upon his eyewitness testimony of the event. He called his sermon, “The Fate of Blood-Thirsty Oppressors and God’s Tender Care of His Distressed People.” His sermon has been republished by Nordskog Publishing under the title, “The Battle of Lexington, A Sermon and Eyewitness Narrative, Jonas Clark, Pastor, Church of Lexington.”
OFFSPRING OF VIPERS ... EVIL SEEDS OF DARKNESS
AMERICANS SUSPECTED OF TRYING TO SHIP BABY BODY PARTS FLEE FROM THAILAND POLICE:
BANGKOK (Reuters) - Thai police said on Monday two Americans suspected of trying to send infant and adult body parts in parcels to the United States had fled the country.
A baby's head, a baby's foot sliced into three parts, a heart and a "sheet of skin" with tattoo markings were found in parcels on Saturday after staff at a shipping office in Bangkok scanned the packages, police said.
The parts were stored in plastic containers filled with formaldehyde and the packages were destined for an address in Las Vegas.
"X-rays showed there were contents similar to human body parts. From our investigation of three parcels we found human body parts in five plastic containers," Police Lieutenant General Ruangsak Jaritake, assistant to the National Police Commissioner, told reporters.
"The packages were marked 'children's toys' but x-rays showed they were not children's toys."
Police named the two suspects, aged 31 and 33, and said they were being "monitored", but did not say how.
Both men fled Thailand on Sunday through a checkpoint in the east of the country, Ruangsak said.
He said the heart had stab marks and belonged to an adult while the sheet of skin with tattoo markings also belonged to an adult.
"As soon as we have results, we will contact the FBI," he said.
Doctors at Bangkok's Siriraj Hospital said that the body parts were taken from the hospital's Medical Museum, nicknamed the Museum of Death, which exhibits preserved human remains, many of them from murder victims.
"We can confirm that they were stolen from Siriraj," Udom Kachintorn, Dean of the Faculty of Medicine Siriraj Hospital, told reporters.
He added that the two Americans visited the museum last month.
In 2012, Thai police arrested a British citizen of Taiwanese origin after discovering six human fetuses which had been roasted and covered in gold leaf stuffed into travel bags at a hotel room in Bangkok's Chinatown.
Thai detectives said they believed the corpses were due to be sent to Taiwan to be used as part of a black magic ritual.
My 78 year old father died of carbon monoxide poisoning in his home, due to a faulty heater. My mother was sickened but will be released from the hospital today. It is a MIRACLE that she is alive. Pray for us. Thank you.
Your support keeps freedom alive!
