Communist Xi gets royal treatment despite China’s persecution record

China’s President Xi Jinping recently visited the United States to meet with President Joe Biden, the first visit on American soil in six years. Their conversation included topics like the fentanyl crisis, artificial intelligence, and even the return of pandas to the United States.  

Yet one issue was painfully neglected in their conversation – China’s blatant violation of human rights and persecution of religious minorities, reports International Christian Concern.

Since the Chinese Communist Party seized power in the 1940s, religious freedom conditions have deteriorated. China has kept its efforts to silence and, in some cases, eradicate ethnic and religious communities, such as the Uyghurs, Tibetan Buddhists, and Christians. Disappearances, forced organ harvesting, controlled press, and surveillance of its citizens are just the beginning in terms of China’s human rights abuses. And these issues were largely ignored during Jinping’s visit. 

Shortly after the heads of state met, dozens of American CEOs socialized over dinner with Chinese government officials. High-profile CEOs such as Elon Musk of Tesla and X, Stanley Deal of Boeing, Stephen Schwarzman of Blackstone, and Marc Benioff of Salesforce were seen in attendance, paying up to $40,000 to dine with Communist dictator Xi Jinping.

Many have criticized this large gathering, including Republican Congressman Mike Gallagher of Wisconsin, who said, “It is unconscionable that American companies might pay thousands of dollars to join a ‘welcome dinner’ hosted by the very same Chinese Communist Party officials who have facilitated a genocide against millions of innocent men, women, and children in Xinjiang.”

The attendance of Apple’s CEO, Tim Cook, should also be of notable concern. Two years ago, Apple removed a Bible app from the Chinese version of the app store at the request of government officials.  

For a country that brought in $74 billion in revenue in 2022 for Apple, it is possible that Tim Cook and many of the CEOs in attendance have traded their “commitments” to universal human rights in exchange for cash, filling their pockets while letting China’s religious minorities continue to suffer. 

200 trucks of goods enter Gaza Strip

Two hundred trucks of goods were offloaded by the United Nations Relief and Works Agency reception point in the Gaza Strip on Friday, the biggest humanitarian convoy received since October 7, reports the Jerusalem Post.

This was done within the framework of the truce and the schedule for the release of the hostages that was agreed upon with the US through the mediation of Qatar and Egypt.

The temporary truce between Israel and Hamas came into effect early on Friday, ahead of the exchange of dozens of hostages held by terrorists in Gaza for Palestinians imprisoned in Israel, reports Jewish News.

British Prime Minister Rishi Sunak tweeted: “This humanitarian pause is critical to end the terrible ordeal of hostages held by Hamas and get life-saving aid into Gaza.”

Instagram has become a “vast pedophile network”

According to recent testimony during a U.S. Senate committee hearing, while social media giant, Meta, which runs Facebook and Instagram, was focused on cracking down on conservative speech in coordination with the Biden administration, pedophiles were not only operating “vast” networks on the company’s platforms, but were often connected with each other via the company’s own algorithms, reports LifeSiteNews.

Listen to this soundbite from the November 7 Senate Judiciary Committee hearing on “social media and the teen mental health crisis.” Republican Senator Josh Hawley of Missouri asked Arturo Bejar, Facebook’s former Director of Engineering for Protect and Care, a question.

HAWLEY: “This is from the Wall Street Journal’s report earlier this year. This is June of this year. They found the following. I’m going to quote.  ‘Instagram helps connect and promote a vast network of accounts openly devoted to the commission and purchase of under-age sex content. Pedophiles have long used the internet. But, unlike the forums and file transfer services that cater to people who have an interest in illicit content, Instagram doesn’t merely host these activities, Instagram’s algorithms promote them. Instagram connects pedophiles and guides them to content sellers via recommendation systems that excel at linking those who share these interests, the [Wall Street] Journal and academic researchers found.’

“This is a stunning, stunning report, Mr. Bejar that more than bears out what you were telling, trying to tell, the executives who ignored you. In your own view, why do you think this is happening? Why has Instagram become, in the words of the Wall Street Journal, ‘a vast pedophile network’? Why are people, like your daughter, every time they get on Instagram, they’re being bombarded with unwanted sexual advances, sexual content? Why is this happening?”

BEJAR:  “Most of the resources, close to all, that they invest in this go towards this very narrow definition of harm.”

Read Arturo Bejar’s 15-page testimony.

In Matthew 18:6, Jesus warned, “If anyone causes one of these little ones—those who believe in Me—to stumble, it would be better for them to have a large millstone hung around their neck and to be drowned in the depths of the sea.”

Celebrities revealing they aborted their children in memoirs

And finally, it’s the year of abortion memoirs, reports  

In Paris Hilton’s memoir, entitled Paris, she revealed that when she was 22 years old she had an abortion.  

She wrote, “In November 2003, after we had filmed the first season of The Simple Life and before it premiered, I was living my best life. … It all came crashing down when I realized I was pregnant at 22. Choosing to have an abortion can be an intensely private agony that’s impossible to explain. The only reason I’m talking about it now is that so many women arefacing it, and they feel so alone and judged and abandoned. … And you do it, even though it breaks your heart.” She’s had thoughts like, “What if I killed my Paris?

Actress Kerry Washington  also released an autobiography this year, entitled Thicker Than Water: A Memoir, and writes about her own abortion.  She never imagined that she would be in an abortion clinic, “surrendering my insides to a surgical vacuum.”  Ironically, Washington is famous for a scene when her character on the TV show Scandal had an abortion, literally, to the tune of “Silent Night,” a Christmas hymn celebrating the birth of our Savior, Jesus Christ.

And singer Britney Spears revealed in her memoir, entitled The Woman in Me, that she experienced a brutal abortion at the behest of her then-boyfriend Justin Timberlake, a man who desperately did not want to be a father. Spears wanted to keep the child, but she caved under pressure, and lay sobbing on the bathroom floor after taking the Abortion Kill Pill for fear of being recognized outside an abortion mill. Despite being worth tens of millions of dollars, they, too, were “not ready” to have children. The woman in Spears wanted to keep the baby; the baby in her died because Timberlake refused to welcome the baby that he had fathered.

Isaiah 59:7 says, “Their feet rush into sin; they are swift to shed innocent blood. They pursue evil schemes; acts of violence mark their ways.”
