Holy Ark Announcement Due on Friday

(Israelnationalnews.com) Ethiopian church leader says Friday, June 26, marks the right time to unveil the Biblical Ark of the Covenant, which he says has been hidden in his church for centuries.

Abuna Pauolos, Patriarch of The Ethiopian Orthodox Church, was in Rome this week to meet with Pope Benedict XVI. While there, he told reporters that the time had come to reveal before the world the Holy Ark. He said that the holy container has been in the custody of his church for hundreds of years.

Paulous said he would make the full announcement this Friday, June 26, 2 PM local time (3 PM Israel time, 8 AM New York time) at a press conference in Rome.

The claim that the Biblical Holy Ark has been kept at the Church, in the city of Axum, is an old one, but this is the first time that the Church plans to actually reveal the actual container, or news of it. It is not known whether the Church claims that the actual Tablets of the Law are inside it.

Copies of the alleged Ark are kept in many other churches in Ethiopia.

The news of the impending announcement was first reported by the Italian news agency Adnkronos. Pauolos told the news outlet, “Soon the world will be able to admire the Ark of the Covenant described in the Bible as the container of the tablets of the law that G-d delivered to Moses, and the center of searches and studies for centuries.”

Pauolos said “The Ark of the Covenant has been in Ethiopia for many centuries. As Patriarch, I have seen it with my own eyes, and only a few, highly-qualified persons could do the same – until now.”

Back to Earth
Stuart Munro-Hay, author of “Quest for the Ark of the Covenant: The True History of the Tablets of Moses,” concluded that the object in question is definitely not the original Holy Ark.

The building of the Ark of the Covenant – also known as the Ark of Testimony and the Ark of G-d’s Covenant – in accordance with Divine instructions is recounted in the Book of Exodus. The Ark held the Tablets of the Law, and traveled with the People of Israel, leading the way into the Promised Land. It was placed first in the Tabernacle in Shilo, and centuries later in the Holy Temple built by King Solomon. Since then, its whereabouts have been unknown, though one popular legend says it was brought to Ethiopia. Alternatively, it could be under the Temple Mount, in a cave at Mt. Nevo in Jordan, in the Vatican, a hideaway in Utah, or elsewhere.

Kerry wishes it were Palin who had gone missing

Kerry wishes it were Palin who had gone missing

Ethel C. Fenig
There he goes again.  Senator — and former presidential candidate, John (I voted for it before I voted against it) Kerry (D-MA) who, despite his fine education and even greater wealth — thanks to his 2 wealthy wives — is noted for shoving his foot in his mouth.  The man who insulted the people serving in America’s Armed Forces by saying

You know, education, if you make the most of it, if you study hard and you do your homework, and you make an effort to be smart, uh, you, you can do well. If you don’t, you get stuck in Iraq.

has done it again.  Writing in the Boston Herald, Rachelle Cohen enlightens us on Kerry’s sense of humor.  When told of Governor Mark Sanford’s (R-SC) mysterious four day disappearance

“Too bad,” Kerry said, “if a governor had to go missing it couldn’t have been the governor of Alaska. You know, Sarah Palin.”

The Democratic-centric crowd laughed.

Tee hee!  Letterman, Kerry–all afraid of strong, independent women!  Kerry should find a job with David Letterman–who would miss him? 

And as for Governor Palin

Gov. Sarah Palin is on her way to an undisclosed “overseas” location to visit deployed Alaska National Guard troops.

From Palin’s Twitter feed:

“Travel now to bring appreciation from their Alaska family & Natl Guard leadership to heroes in US European Command’s area of responsibility.”

And that, Senator Kerry, is no joke.  But of course you, defamer of troops from way back, think it is. 

Jack Kemp adds:

These remarks by the snotty senator show that the Democrats are very frightened of Gov. Palin. And that’s even without her inviting him to go moose hunting.
