Rev. Ivan Foster: As long as unionists care chiefly about their salary, nothing will change

The following letter, which the editor sent in to The Belfast Newsletter on May 25th, the day the letter from Mr Ken McFarland was published, appeared in Saturday, May 29th’s edition.

Rev Ivan Foster: As long as unionists care chiefly about their salary, nothing will change

A letter from Rev Ivan Foster:

Saturday, 29th May 2021, 4:13 pm

In a letter to your newspaper, Mr Ken McFarland of Omagh (‘IRA funeral breach exposed lawless nature of republicans,’ May 25, see link below) asked: “How long are we expected to pander to the very people who brought the ‘conflict’ about in the first place, and how long is the Sinn Fein ‘tail’ going to be permitted to wag the policing and justice ‘dog’ in this country?”

The answer is simple!

Just as long as unionists keep electing representatives to Stormont whose chief interest is the salary and benefits they accrue from that position and who will not for one moment dare contemplate any challenging of the arrogance of Sinn Fein which might in any way jeopardise that salary and benefits!

If ‘huff and puff’ could save Ulster from SF tyranny, how peaceful this land would be.

Rev Ivan Foster, Kilskeery, Co Tyrone.

Two troubling reports from the USA

The two reports below come from the USA. The first highlights that the ludicrous evil of ‘transgenderism’ is a world-wide, devil-inspired delusion with horrendous implications for those who believe the Bible and will not submit to the tide of oppressive measures brought against any who hold to God’s truth.

The second report also highlights an increasingly common form of anti-Christian persecution, this time within a school.

To mention the name of Christ and own His saving mercy is deemed an offensive act which must be hindered.

We have seen it reported as happening in workplaces and also on the streets of our cities where police, without real cause, have hindered open-air preaching, in some cases arresting, though not charging the preachers.

Dear Christian, this is like the first spits of rain before a torrential downpour!

Letter: Media reports of Ballymurphy inquest have been stripped of the historical context...

Editor’s Note:

It is my desire, as much as in me lies, to keep Protestants informed of the truth in order to protect them from the propaganda and the lies flooding from a biased media.

This letter helps to set the events in Ballymurphy in 1971 in their context and for that reason I circulate it.

It is well worth a read.

I do not know the writer and only judge him on the basis of what is here written.


Ivan Foster.

Media reports of Ballymurphy inquest have been stripped of the historical context, of near civil war in Northern Ireland

A letter from Dr William Beattie Smith:
Belfast Newsletter, Saturday, 22nd May 2021.

The Prime Minister Harold Wilson, seen here with Jim Callaghan in 1965, had wanted the Unionist MPs to abstain from voting with the Conservatives. Callaghan, who as Home Secretary from 1967 was responsible for NI, said once soldiers were on the streets, troublemakers would revive the republican narrative of British occupation

Over the past week I have seen much media coverage of the Ballymurphy inquest. My heart goes out to the families who lost loved ones, and I respect their determination in pursuing honest answers from the authorities.

It is disappointing that so many nationalist commentators have exploited the families’ tragedy to reinforce their narrative of Irish victimhood and British oppression. They get away with this because the coverage so often reports events stripped of their historical context.

Ben Habib: In a new low, Boris Johnson is claiming the Act of Union no longer exists

PM Boris Johnson

Politicians can be ruthless in pursuit of their personal agendas but what we heard in the Belfast High Court on Tuesday reached new lows.

“Whatever the outcome of the judicial review, we do now know the government of the United Kingdom, led by Boris Johnson, holds the people of Northern Ireland and our Union in contempt,” writes Ben Habib.

The article alleges that we are no longer British citizens as are the people of England, Scotland and Wales. The ‘1800 Act of Union’ no longer exists!

All this happened with the DUP MPs at Westminster watching!!

Please the read the article carefully.

Belfast Newsletter, Thursday, 20th May 2021

By Ben Habib

During the judicial review of the Northern Ireland Protocol, the government argued that British citizens in Northern Ireland are not equal to citizens in Great Britain.

Acting for the government, Tony McGleenan QC claimed that Article 6 of the Act of Union 1800 no longer applies. He claimed the government had repealed it to enable the Northern Ireland Protocol and its new Irish Sea border to be put in place. For those not familiar with Article 6, it is a crucial bit of constitutional legislation.

Can a Sodomite be 'Cured'??

Mr. Edwin Poots

Gay people ‘probably’ born that way and can’t be ‘cured’, says new DUP leader Poots.

See Belfast Telegraph article: Poots says gay people probably born that way

When you endeavour to be morally and politically ‘all things to all men’ in order to gain their support, you must invariably dismiss God’s truth and seriously trip yourself up!

It did not take too long for Mr Edwin Poots to land flat on his face as he sought to paint himself as ‘Mr. Politically Correct’!

“There are opportunities to make NI a great place”

Edwin Poots

“There are opportunities to make NI a great place” — Edwin Poots, newly elected leader of the DUP

The true and only recipe for greatness is set forth in God’s Word.

“Thou hast also given me the shield of thy salvation: and thy right hand hath holden me up, and thy gentleness hath made me great,” Psalm 18:35.

There are three cardinal factors set forth on the path to greatness.

1. Shielded by the Lord.
2. Strengthened by the Lord.
3. Saved by the Lord.

The word ‘gentle’ is a reference to the gentle, gracious dealings in mercy of God with David.

A Suspicious Conclusion into the Suspicious Deaths During an IRA Riot!

An examination of the recent ruling by Mrs Justice Keegan on the deaths in Ballymurphy in August 1971 as a result of a riot and firefight between the IRA and the Army.

Very few outside of Ulster and, sadly, all too many inside it, who have been brainwashed by an Irish Republican/Roman Catholic dominated media into believing their perverted distortions of truth and the rewriting of the history of the ‘Ulster Troubles’, swallow without any hesitation the story being put out about the shooting of civilians by the British Army back in the midst of a riot in the Roman Catholic Ballymurphy area of West Belfast in August 1971.

Anti-British propaganda has poured forth and has continued to pour forth, since the verdict of a court case examining the events was announced on 12th May 2021.

Here is a sample.

Deputy First Minister Michelle O’Neill tells the media that it is a ‘day of truth’ for the Ballymurphy families. The rulings, she says, have “laid-bare for all to see now that the British Forces murdered their family members, their innocent family members. . . . They’ve always known that, the Ballymurphy community have known that, the wider community has known that and now the whole world can see that is the case,” the Sinn Féin vice president continued.”

It is never ‘a day of truth’ when Michelle O’Neill opens her mouth. Out of it will come the biased utterances of one born and bred and suckled as an inveterate hater of all things British.

1. Firstly, let me ask, why were thousands gathered on the streets during this firefight initiated by the IRA?

They must have been either possessed of a stupid interest in the deadly exchanges and blindly unaware of the danger in which they placed themselves for the IRA was using the civilians as cover. The IRA knew who they were shooting at. Their targets all wore uniforms which clearly marked them. The Army did not have such information about their enemies. They were all wearing civilian clothing and mingling amongst civilians, such as the ‘stupid sightseers’!

Then there were those undoubtedly who were there to render what aid they could to the IRA. It was common for civilians to move in, under cover of giving aid to an IRA man shot in such a firefight, in order to strip the wounded or even dead terrorist of all weapons or any material such as a mask, which would give proof of his terrorist activity and thus justify his being targeted. As soon as that was done, up would go the cry: “He was only out buying a loaf of bread for his poor old granny, God love him!!”

They learned that tactic from their friends the Palestinians!

36 years ago, Sammy Heenan's father was murdered by PIRA

Sammy Heenan was a lad of 12 when the IRA came to the isolated family home in the Mourne Mountain area of Northern Ireland and murdered his widowed father and left his body for his young son to find.

Sammy is now a Christian and here tells the story on the anniversary of the murder.

Mr. Heenan wrote: “Sinn Fein are relentless in their propaganda as we recently witnessed with their recent terrorist glorification. This little homemade clip is designed to hopefully reach many on Twitter by reminding others of what the PIRA perpetrated against the innocent people of South Down.”

Here is some footage of the aftermath of the murder back on May 3, 1985.


Mr. Heenan gave his testimony in January 2019 at Ballygowan FPC.

Mrs Lindsay Robinson's blasphemy

This is taken from an article from today’s ‘Belfast Newsletter’.


The wife of a DUP MP has hit back at those within the party said to have questioned some of her recent comments urging a ban on gay conversion therapy.

The article contains a quote from Mrs Robinson, mounted on her ‘Twitter’ account, in which she was responding to a statement with which she did not agree from DUP MLA, Mr Thomas Buchanan.

She uttered what must be considered  a blasphemous expletive to express her disagreement.

“Jesus, Mary and Joseph and the wee donkey. I’m all out of words and almost everything else at this point.”

This is an outburst from one who has little regard for God and even less understanding of the sanctity of His truth.

Has she no knowledge of the third commandment which teaches: “Thou shalt not take the name of the LORD thy God in vain; for the LORD will not hold him guiltless that taketh his name in vain,” Exodus 20:7?

She has either no knowledge of what it is the Lord requires of us regarding the use of His name or she wickedly cares little for what the Lord says!

This expletive is a familiar outburst from the lips of the Roman Catholic. Her adopting of such an evil expression  betrays a worldly mindset in utter opposition to that which is of the grace of God!

This is the sad and reprehensible depths to which the DUP has sunk in recent times.

I have sent off the following letter to the “Belfast Newsletter”. Click to read more…
