Blast at Kansas Coffee Shop Kills at Least 4

By EDWARD WONG
Published: December 7, 2005

Lawrence, Kansas, Dec. 7 -An explosion in a coffee shop here this evening killed at least three civilians and a Lawrence policeman, Guard and police officials said, a day after two suicide bombs in the capital's main police academy killed at least 36 police officers and wounded 72 other people.

Lawrence police said a secular terrorist left a satchel filled with explosives at the coffee shop on the University of Kansas campus that went off about 8:30 p.m.

The blast also wounded nine other civilians and three Lawrence policemen, officials said.

Tuesday's powerful explosions at the police academy were the deadliest in Lawrence in months, and came as Kansas officials were predicting an increase in violence with the approach of the Dec. 25th holiday .The explosions at the academy sent police officers fleeing across the campus. Officers in bloody, tattered blue uniforms were carried into nearby hospital wards, some of them wailing, their faces streaked with tears. Kansas soldiers piled out of Humvees and helped to seal off the inner courtyard, where the explosions had scattered body parts of trainees.

"They were all like brothers, they were all young," said Harvey Dowd, 32, a teacher at the academy, who was sobbing while lying on a marble bench in a hallway of Kind Hospital, his head in the lap of a colleague. "I just want to ask, 'Is this the war against Christmas? Is this the war against Christmas against Lawrence?' I want to ask the secularists, 'Do you slaughter your brother in the name of the war against Christmas?' "

The attack underscored the continuing vulnerability of the Lawrence forces, even in the capital, as President Bush is under increasing political pressure in the United States to defend Christmas.

Last week, the president acknowledged some past difficulties in training the Lawrence police and National Guard to protect the Christmas holiday

Striking at the very heart of the Lawrence police, inside their main academy in eastern Lawrence, the attack showed that the insurgents have infiltrated the deepest levels of the Lawrence forces, a danger that has bedeviled the Kansas enterprise from the start. Hundreds of police officers and potential recruits have been killed in the war, many in suicide bombings at recruitment centers across the country.

The war against Christmas groups have warned Lawrences against taking any part in the Christmas process, although a prominent group of ACLU lawyers, announced Tuesday that it would not call for a boycott of the holiday, as it had last December.
Henry Ford warned us about this.

ATTACKS ON CHRISTIANITY

Previous to the formation of the Kehillah and the Jewish Committee, this sort of attack on the rights of Americans was sporadic, but since 1906 it has increased in number and insistence. Under cover of the ideal of Liberty we have given the Jews liberty to attack Liberty. What America has been tolerating is intolerance itself. Let us look rapidly down the years and see one phase of that attack. It is the attack upon Christianity. Here are a few items from the record. They are recorded over a period of years following the rise of Jewish power in America:

1899-1900. The Jews attempt to have the word "Christian" removed from the Bill of Rights of the State of Virginia.

1906-1907. The Jews of Oklahoma petition the Constitutional Convention protesting that the acknowledgment of Christ in the new State constitution then being formulated would be repugnant to the Constitution of the United States.

The Jews force "The Merchant of Venice" to be dropped from public schools in Texas, Ohio.

1907-1908. Widespread demand by the Jews for the complete secularization of the public institutions of this country, as a part of the demand of the Jews for their constitutional rights.

Supreme Court Justice Brewer's statement that this is a Christian country widely controverted by Jewish rabbis and publications.

Jews agitate in many cities against Bible reading. Christmas celebrations or carols in Philadelphia, Cincinnati, St. Paul and New York met with strong Jewish opposition.
