I have been witnessing the bombing of my homeland with great pain and distress in my heart. We have been at war for 48 days and there is no sign of a permanent ceasefire. People in Gaza are experiencing massive amounts of death and destruction. People can barely leave their homes to do even the simplest activities. People can’t even sleep.

(DAYTONA BEACH)   Things have been busy in Florida, what with hurricane season, Rick Scott’s campaign to deny food stamps to druggies, and BP’s ad campaign extolling the vacation paradise they’ve  wrought in the Gulf.

John the Baptist, Not Jesus on the Cross?



 Global News Centre Special Report

(BOSTON) – Recent research embodied in a new book by Agron Belica invites our attention to the predicament of John the Baptist, popularly known for little more than the story of his beheading by order of Herod Antipas at the behest of a seductive dancing girl, the infamous Salome.

His book, The Passion of the Baptist, Not the Christ, arguing from the chronological and historical evidence provided by the ancient Jewish historian Josephus and the New Testament about John, demonstrates that the story of his beheading is almost certainly spurious. Comparison with the writings of Josephus gives the lie to this scenario for, as the detailed scrutiny and evaluation of Josephus’s text shows, Herod Antipas probably did not order John’s execution until 36 CE, half a dozen years later than most datings of the event of the crucifixion. Belica suggests that it was the Prophet Yahya (John the Baptist) who was placed on the cross and survived the ordeal and not Jesus, in a case of mistaken identity.
