BREAKING: Muslim Pilot Of EgyptAir Flight 804 Converted The Plane Into A Portable Mosque And Said Farewell Before the Crash

From Walid Shoebat, accompanied by a mountain of evidence:

More evidence is arising to show that the pilot of Flight 804 went suicide. He did some bizarre things. He converted the plane into a makeshift mosque, used the equipment to tell passengers the direction of Mecca. Had a last supper and said “farewell” as if ‘we who are about to die salute you’. He called his brother before take-off telling him to ‘pray for him’ as he was going for martyrdom. He had connections with one of the most radical preachers and terror supporters in Egypt.

We start off with testimony of Osama Abdel Basset, the captain in charge of the air hospitality in Egyptian Air says it all“The Captain Mohammed Shakeer, the pilot of that fateful flight” had organized a “last supper” knowing he is “about to die”

Shoebat’s challenge:

Have at it. Examine the links provided here for yourself using Google Translate. Go ahead, refute, dispute, make my day. The statements are all accurate.

Concerning the pilot Shakeer’s connections to and contacts with a known terrorist:

… Shakeer’s link to Amr Khaled should raise some serious alarm bells. The latter is a well known Muslim Brotherhood operative and an active Jihadi who openly aided and abetted terrorists. He shares his friendship with the pilot Shakeer with old photos on that very flight with the same captain of the crashed Egyptian flight 804. Amr Khaled says in the photo: “I was with Captain Mohammed Ahmad Shakeer in the plane that is missing in one of my journeys. He is the kindest of pilots whom I travelled with. May Allah have mercy on him and give patience to his family. I hope who reads my words to pray for him and the rest of the passenger”.

… Ahmad Musa, a well known journalist and TV personality correctly exposes Amr Khaled showing from his own video admitting to sending young men and material help to terrorists in Libya and Benghazi for Jihad. Khaled is also an Islamic tele evangelist who runs a TV show called “The Makers of Life” using it to raise Jihadists.

So why are there no hints of this in the establishment press? At a minimum, the idea of a pilot-suicide is as plausible as any other theory seen thus far.

Facebook Tags Patricia Heaton’s Pregnancy Center Tweet ‘Anti-Abortion’

On Thursday, Media Research Center President Brent Bozell, following a meeting the previous day between some of the nation’s top conservative leaders and company officials at Facebook, including CEO Mark Zuckerberg, “told Fox Business Network’s Neil Cavuto … that he ‘left encouraged’ that the site wants to fix the ‘erosion of trust’ set forth by allegations of censoring conservative news topics.”

An incident the previous week confirmed that Zuckerberg and Facebook have a genuine and serious credibility problem on their hands, as the site’s “Trending Topics” monitors characterized a well-known actress’s shout-out for the wonderful work done by a DC-area pregnancy and parenthood center as an “anti-abortion message.”

Positivity: Surprise! After Infertility and Heartbreak, California Parents Film the Moment They Reveal Adoption News to Family

Filed under: Positivity — Tom @ 5:55 am

From North Hollywood, California (HT Daryn Kagan):

ORIGINALLY PUBLISHED 05/17/2016 AT 06:20 PM EDT

Following years of infertility and one miscarriage, Lacey and Banks Farris decided to surprise their loved ones with some special news – they adopted a baby girl!

Banks filmed the heartwarming moment he showed up unannounced at the houses of various family members, with Lacey holding 1-month-old Finley.

“Our entire family was overjoyed for us!” Lacey, 28, tells PEOPLE. “Both sides had been praying for so long for us, they had no idea!”

In fact, Banks’ 78-year-old grandmother was so shocked, she had to sit down.

“Oh my word, I’m going to pass out!” she exclaims in the video.

The North Hollywood, California, couple had tried to get pregnant for 15 months in 2012 before receiving good news – Lacey was going to have a girl.

“I was so envious of all of my friends who were pregnant, I just wanted to be a mother,” says Lacey. “It’s hard seeing everyone you know posting pregnancy pictures and being happy.”

Lacey had been carrying the baby – who she called Poppy – for 20 weeks when her water broke.

Poppy died at birth.

“It was the hardest thing we’ve had to go through,” Lacey says of her and Banks, 29. “I held Poppy, and I’m grateful for that. It put a face to my grief.”

Lacey and Banks went through two rounds of intrauterine insemination (foregoing in vitro fertilization due to Lacey’s “incompetent cervix”) in 2015 before seriously considering adoption.

They pursued an open adoption, but the biological mother and father ended up choosing to parent the baby.

“I was hurt, but now I understand the mother made the right decision,” says Lacey. “The questions that came in from my family were hard though. I just didn’t want to talk about it.”

She adds, “I knew that we would pursue adoption again, and that when we did I didn’t want to tell any of our family until we actually had our baby in our home.” …
