Afghans Killing Americans
At least 57 U.S. soldiers have been killed by Afghan National Security Forces, or insurgents disguised as them, since 2007 when the Pentagon began keeping track of such deaths, according to CNSNews.com’s tally.

Is Christ Reaching out to Muslims through their Dreams?
That’s the question being asked by this provocative story from The Blaze:
“Is Jesus Christ reaching out to Muslims through their dreams and encouraging them to embrace his teachings? This is exactly the phenomenon that some former Islamic adherents claim they have personally experienced. Numerous stories about Muslims, among others, who see the Christian savior in their dreams and convert as a result are streaming out of the Middle East. While skeptics would certainly scoff at such a notion — and Muslims, themselves, may become incensed at proclamations affirming this dynamic, those who have experienced it swear by its authenticity.”
