Today on Kresta - January 14, 2010

Talking about the "things that matter most" on Jan. 14

4:00 – Questioning the Veil: Open Letters to Muslim Women
Nicolas Sarkozy last night threw his weight behind moves to ban the full Islamic veil in France, calling for an "unambiguous" parliamentary resolution against an item of clothing he said was "not welcome" in a country which valued sexual equality. The president, who had shied away from speaking on the issue recently, used his new year's speech to express his desire for a move against face-covering veils. Marnia Lazreg is the author of Questioning the Veil, a discussion of the infamous piece of cloth that is different from most other treatises on the issue. It is personal and passionate. . . . As such, it is a highly relevant intervention into the debate on the veil. We talk with Marnia.

4:20 – A Lethal Obsession: Anti-Semitism from Antiquity to the Global Jihad
In an unprecedented work two decades in the making, leading historian Robert Wistrich examines the long and ugly history of anti-Semitism, from the first recorded pogrom in 38 BC to its shocking and widespread resurgence in the present day. As no other book has done before it, A Lethal Obsession reveals the causes behind this shameful and persistent form of hatred and offers a sobering look at how it may shake and reshape the world in years to come. Moving seamlessly through centuries of war and dissidence, he powerfully portrays the creation of the Protocols of the Elders of Zion, to modern Islamofacism.

5:00 – Kresta Comments – Pat Robertson Strikes Again
Another one for the Pat Robertson highlight reel. Now Robertson claims that the earthquake that has devastated Haiti is due to a "curse" on the country caused by a "pact" that government leaders made "with the devil" 200 years ago. This urban legend has been shot down many times and Al will present the evidence. Even if the alleged "pact with the devil" took place, and even if God chose to show His displeasure with an earthquake 200 years later, what place does Pat Robertson occupy to determine the mind of God? Al has the audio and the response.

5:20 – Miracle on the Hudson: 1 Year Later
When US Airways Flight 1549 struck a flock of geese and lost both engines minutes after takeoff from La Guardia Airport on Jan. 15, 2009, Fred Berretta, and amateur pilot himself, knew before most that there was something seriously wrong. As the pilot announced to “Brace for impact” Berretta held a prayer book and prepared himself for death. He felt a nudging of the Holy Spirit and God’s voice sounded loud and clear in his soul: “Are you going to accept My will for your life?” We talk to Fred about HIS Miracle on the Hudson.

5:40 – Kresta Comments – Rembrandt Found in Catholic University Bathroom and Bishop Kevin Rhodes Installed as Bishop of Fort Wayne / South Bend
