Mideast Flashpoint: War Watch, Israel, Iraq, Syria, Iran, Egypt

Today’s Breaking News in the Mideast:

Netanyahu Makes Good On Promise To Punish Hamas As IDF Jets Light Up Gaza

Israel orders preparations for invasion of Gaza

Israel Strikes Gaza by Air and Sea to Halt Rocket Attacks

With a bloody and devastating three year old civil war still raging in Syria, as Iraq is now being carved into ever smaller disjointed pieces by ISIS terrorists, with Israel and HAMAS in Palestine now exchanging more rocket fire every three or four weeks, and with the ongoing unrest in Egypt seizing headlines daily, the possibility of a larger military flashpoint igniting in the Mideast seems to draw ever closer.

This page will document unfolding events in Syria, Jordan, Egypt, Iraq, Iran, Israel, Turkey, Saudi Arabia and Yemen. The level of serious unrest and instability unfolding in the Mideast is worsening with every passing week. I grew up reading stories about terror and suicide attacks in Israel, most of which during the 1970s and 80s were launched by the PLO or Palestinian Liberation Army, led by Yasser Arafat. Today HAMAS continues the attacks on Israel that Yasser Arafat was so well known for decades ago.

US foreign policy in the Mideast has been less effective during the Obama presidency than at any time in recent memory. If the Mideast finally fully ignites, the whole world will eventually be pulled into it’s deadly spinning vortex of war, and that is why so many eyes are always on the region. Bookmark this page and stop by to browse updates as they are posted.

Commensurate with the rising tide of hatred and violence in the Mideast is the rising threat of renewed terror attacks on US soil.  When ISIS leader Abu Bakr Baghdadi was released from prison by US military forces in Iraq in 2009, he turned to his former jailor and said:

“I’ll see you in New York.”

I would like to introduce the following quote from Barack Obama as an example of one of the TOP TEN most misguided foreign policy statements ever made by a sitting US president:

“… Iraq is not a perfect place. It has many challenges ahead. But we’re leaving behind a sovereign, stable and self-reliant Iraq, with a representative government that was elected by its people. We’re building a new partnership between our nations. And we are ending a war not with a final battle, but with a final march toward home. This is an extraordinary achievement, nearly nine years in the making.” – President Barack Obama, 2011

For those who are just awakening to the magnitude of the present threat to our nation [ Why were you ever asleep? ] I’d like to present the following document, which I consider to be MUST READING for every American who loves our country and wants to see it protected intact from radical Islamic rot within.

Cited from http://www.investigativeproject.org/document/id/20

Summary:

This May 1991 memo was written by Mohamed Akram, a.k.a. Mohamed Adlouni, for the Shura Council of the Muslim Brotherhood. In the introductory letter, Akram referenced a “long-term plan…approved and adopted” by the Shura Council in 1987 and proposed this memo as a supplement to that plan and requested that the memo be added to the agenda for an upcoming Council meeting. Appended to the document is a list of all Muslim Brotherhood organizations in North America as of 1991.

An Explanatory Memorandum on the General Strategic Goal for the [Muslim] Brotherhood in North America

Any “war watch” which examines the Mideast must also be on constant watch for rising incidents of radical Islamic incursions into the heart of American civic life and society. I strongly suggest that all my readers spend some time and subscribe to the news blog http://creepingsharia.wordpress.com to get up to speed on what is already taking place in America that might shock and surprise you. You will also find the RSS news feed for Creeping Sharia news blog on the front page right columns of this blog.

You won’t see these reports on regular evening newscasts as there is an ongoing explicit NEWS BLACKOUT against any MSM media outlet reporting incidents indicative of the advancement of radical Islamic thought and Sharia Law in the US on evening newscasts. Anyone who would like to explain to me exactly WHY this is the case, please hit the comment field below this page, and enlighten me. It’s infuriating and un-American to hide these news stories from the American people, but that is exactly what is taking place.

Russian Annexation of Crimea An Ominous Development for Israel

I wanted to know what Scripture has stated about the recent annexation of Crimea by Russia, and I located an article which lays out the larger picture in broad simple and sweeping terms. I have cited the entire essay below.

American leaders have been foolishly lulled into complacency by their assumption that the old cold war days are over, when in fact, Russia has been making covert, strategic moves in earnest to rebuild their military to a point of superiority over Western forces, while two Mideast wars have dragged our own military into disrepair and philosophical disillusionment.

Our far-left leaning president, Barack Obama, has further eroded our credibility among world leaders during his tenure in office. Putin made his move at a moment when he well knew that most likely, western military forces would not put boots on the ground to oppose him. Whether that changes in the next few years, we will see. At the date of this post, there are now 20,000 Russian troops on the ground, massed along the eastern and southern border of the Ukraine. Should Putin choose to begin to march them into eastern Ukraine, truthfully, there would be scant opposition on the ground capable of thwarting a forward push.

Vladimir Putin has made a sudden and bold opportunistic move in western Russia which puts his military just a little bit closer to being capable of a southern invasion of Israel, which is exactly what Ezekiel 38 and 39 states will eventually take place.

Here’s the article. Please feel free to share it on your own social networks.

Russia will invade Israel in the end times

By Don Koenig

The scriptures indicate that a northern army will invade Israel in the last days. Bible scholars have traced the tribes and have determined that this northern army is led by tribes that have settled in Russia. This prophecy has never been fulfilled so it will be fulfilled in the future.

The details of this invasion from the north are given in Ezekiel chapters 38 and 39. The allies that come with this northern invader are named by nation (tribe). Today most of these nations are Islamic and are enemies of Israel. Ezekiel even lists the countries that will question the reason for this invasion. These nations seem to be nations that come out of the old British Empire and oil rich nations aligned with the West. Ezekiel mentions these nations as Tarshish, all her young lions (English speaking nations), Sheba and Dedan (Saudi Arabia Kuwait). The alignment of nations predicted in Ezekiel is the alignment that we see in that region today. God said He will destroy this northern army that comes against Israel and by doing so He will magnify Himself and become known to many nations.

It says in Ezekiel that at the time of this invasion God will send fire on Magog (Russia) and those that dwell securely in the isles (or coast lands), and from that day they shall know that the God of Israel exists.

Russia is moving toward superpower status again and a new dictatorship

Russia has emerged out of the depression it was in for many years after the fall of the Soviet Union. New growth in the economy due to Russia’s rich natural resources will soon bring Russia back to superpower status again. Nationalism, lawlessness and anti-Semitism are rising today in Russia. Most of the former Soviet bloc leaders of the old Soviet Union have come back into power. Over fifty percent of the positions of power in Russia including Putin are former KGB officers.

They lament the fall of the old Soviet Union and they wish to form a new union of nations led by Russia. Putin recently announced that there will be a new Eurasian union and it is expect to be in place by 2014.

There is no longer freedom of speech in Russia. TV and other media are once again government controlled and enemies often end up dead. The new steps taken by Putin to regain centralized control is leading to a dictatorship.

Russia continues to modernize its nuclear weapons and to prepare underground facilities in case of war. Russia has successfully developed a new long range missile that can change directions after launch. These missiles can successfully penetrate the antimissile system shield that is being developed by the United States.

Russia also has strategic ties to regional Islamic countries. Russia is actively aiding Iran in building nuclear power plants that will giver Iran nuclear material for nuclear weapons. The Arab/Islamic countries have one common enemy and at some point they will try to rid themselves of the Israeli presence with Russia as their protector.

The prophecies in Ezekiel 38 and 39 indicate that God will put a hook in the jaw of Russia and bring her down against the land of Israel in the latter years.

The hook could very well be the defense pacts and economic agreements that Russia has established with Syria, Iran and other Islamic nations. In the battle described in Ezekiel, Russia will be the leader of a regional coalition against Israel.

Until this battle Russia will continue to be a world military superpower

The United States had been dismantling its nuclear capability as if Russia were no longer a world threat but Russia’s nuclear submarine and missile capability has been modernized and is quite capable of destroying the United States or any adversary. Scripture says that this army from the north will be splendidly attired. This could mean that they will be equipped with every conceivable weapon. Russia still has a large population of educated scientists that could develop formidable military weapons very quickly if that becomes their paramount concern and national focus.

Some think the United States and Russia are no longer a threat to each other, yet Russia almost always takes a position that is contrary to the national security interests of the United States.

Russia exports nuclear technology and advanced weapons of war that they know will be used against the United States, Israel, and the West.

Russia has a world agenda that willfully arms Islamic fascism and rogue dictators to carry out warfare against the West. The major world powers enabling Islamic fascism and other nations confessing hatred toward the United States are Russia and China. Although Russia and Western leaders announced the end of the cold war after the fall of the Soviet Union the recent actions and rhetoric of Russia indicate that the cold war continues.

Signs of the time

Russia is following in the footsteps of Germany before the second World War. National pride and the memory of the empire they once had is now compelling them to rebuild a strong military under an authoritative leader. Putin stepped aside as President for a few years and took the number two position but at the next election he will almost certainly become president of Russia until the time of the Ezekiel war. Putin is gaining more power all the time and he has specifically stated that his primary goal is to bring Russia to world superpower status again.

If we assume that it will take Russia about 10 to 15 years to accomplish the reestablishment of a first class military, it probably is no coincidence that the same amount of time is needed for the Arab/Islamic block to become a real nuclear military threat to Israel.

They will indeed join forces in this battle when Russia invades Israel as Ezekiel prophesied over twenty-five hundred years ago. All indications are that the battle against Israel that is described in Ezekiel 38 and 39, and the supernatural defeat of these forces by God will take place in this generation.

Some WP Re-blogs on Muslim Violence Will Not Post: WHY?

It’s a typical Sunday afternoon of catching up on news and reports through out the blogosphere. I tried to re-post several reports on Muslim violence today, and they did not re-post. It was as if I had not even re-posted the material. Has this happened to you? Is it a “too busy WP traffic jam” thing, …. or is it a censorship thing? If this has ever happened to you, please make a comment on it, so I will know.

Meanwhile, I went and looked up the URLs of the two Items I tried to re-blog. Here they are:

Re-post from 2011: The Truth About the Muslim Brotherhood

I authored the report below three years ago. It is more relevant today than ever. Feel free to share with others you know who don’t know anything about the history of the Muslim Brotherhood. The truth about this organization needs to be known.

This page may turn out to be one of the most important pieces of truth research that I have published on the web yet. Our federal government officials are lying to the American people about the so called “non-violent” and secular nature of the Muslim Brotherhood. Either our elected officials are literally stupid, or they are intentionally involved in a national disinformation and propaganda campaign in support of the MB and determined to mislead the American people about the nature of the MB and their threat to our country and other western nations. Watch this video below, which is a classic example of federal disinformation, then read every word on this page and send the page to everyone you know.

For more supporting video documentation on this report read: http://alligatorfarm.wordpress.com/2011/02/07/videos-muslim-brotherhood-nazis/

What is the Muslim Brotherhood? I will take a preliminary definition from a special report prepared in 2008 by Steven Emerson, the Executive Director of the Investigative Project on Terrorism, from a report he wrote for the US Senate Committee on Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs:

The Motto of the Muslim Brotherhood is:

Allah is our objective. The Prophet is our leader. The Qur’an is our law. Jihad is our way. Dying in the way of Allah is our highest hope.”

The official definition of the MB from Wikipedia is full of contradictions and does not line up with the deeper story that American truth researchers are uncovering as the world watches what will take place next in Egypt. Since millions of Americans turn to Wikipedia as an authoritative source because they don’t know better, this essay will hopefully illuminate inquiring minds about just exactly how murky the roots of the MB’s modern movement really are.

The ongoing chaos in Egypt has not only riveted the world’s attention, it now presses the question: who and what will inherit the governance of Egypt after Mubarak? Nearly every American popular talk radio show – both left and right - that I have perused in the past ten days is trying to address this question. I am finding that American radio talk show hosts, are for the most part, fairly poorly informed about the deeper historical roots of radical Islam, and who and what “The Muslim Brotherhood” of today actually is. If you think the MB organization is moderate, peaceful and benign in their goals, you had better read this essay carefully, for you are about to get a wake up call.

A visit to the official Muslim Brotherhood English version website will quickly reveal that the uprising in Egypt has been tacitly fomented by their members, although technically the movement is banned in Egypt. Read the page which documents the MB’s current negotiations with the Egyptian government and there is little doubt left that the MB has had a major role in the Egyptian uprising. Any American Big Media statements to the contrary are indoctrinational positions and hold no truth.

I have compiled this essay for the struggling and misinformed Big Media TV American talking heads referenced above, for myself, and for all Americans who are now scrambling to see far enough into future probabilities to ponder what Egypt might look like under the rule of the Muslim Brotherhood, Wahhabi Islam and fundamentalist sharia law. No possibility is out of reach when chaos leaves open the doors of opportunity for those who would advance the cause of global jihad, using any and all means possible.

See http://www.ikhwanweb.com/articles.php?pid=88 section 15:27 …

MB Media Spokesman: “We hope to take the country to stability, security and democracy, which can bring in the future prosperity, equality, justice and human dignity for all Egyptians.”

Hitler himself rose to power under just such circumstances in Germany in the early 1930s. The exact same fertile soil of rage, civil unrest, political turmoil and confusion, rioting, violence, and widespread public discontent now exists in Egypt:

=======================================================

Hitler’s Rise to Power: 1930-1933

http://www2.dsu.nodak.edu/users/dmeier/Holocaust/hitler.html
“The Nazis gradually devised an electoral strategy to win northern farmers and white collar voters in small towns, which produced a landslide electoral victory in September 1930 (jump from roughly 3% to 18% of the votes cast) due to the depression. Refused a chance to form a cabinet, and unwilling to share in a coalition regime, the Nazis joined the Communists in violence and disorder between 1931 and 1933. In 1932, Hitler ran for President and won 30% of the vote, forcing the eventual victor, Paul von Hindenburg, into a runoff election.

After a bigger landslide in July 1932 (44%), their vote declined and their movement weakened (Hitler lost the presidential election to WWI veteran Paul von Hindenburg in April; elections of November 1932 roughly 42%), so Hitler decided to enter a coalition government as chancellor in January 1933. Upon the death of Hindenburg in August 1934, Hitler was the consensus successor. With an improving economy, Hitler claimed credit and consolidated his position as a dictator, having succeeded in eliminating challenges from other political parties and government institutions. The German industrial machine was built up in preparation for war. In November 1937, he was comfortable enough to call his top military aides together at the “Führer Conference,” when he outlined his plans for a war of aggression in Europe. Those who objected to the plan were dismissed.”

=========================================================

There is a historical relationship between the misdirected dark eugenics and so-called German racial purification doctrines of Hitler and the emerging philosophical evolution of the Muslim Brotherhood.

Read http://townhall.com/columnists/carolineglick/2011/02/04/israel_and_arab_democracy

The Muslim Brothers’ organizational prowess and willingness to use violence to achieve their aims was likely demonstrated within hours of the start of the unrest. Shortly after the demonstrations began, operatives from the Palestinian Muslim Brotherhood branch in Gaza – that is Hamas – knew to cross the border into Sinai. And last Thursday, a police station in Suez was attacked with rocket-propelled grenades and firebombs.

Hamas has a long history of operations in Sinai.

It also has close ties with Beduin gangs in the area that were reportedly involved in attacking another police station in northern Sinai.

Western – and particularly American – willingness to pretend that the Muslim Brotherhood is anything other than a totalitarian movement has been greeted by disbelief and astonishment by Israelis from across the political spectrum.

A Pew Research Center opinion survey of Arab attitudes towards Jews from June 2009 makes this clear. Ninety-five percent of Egyptians, 97% of Jordanians and Palestinians and 98% of Lebanese expressed unfavorable opinions of Jews. Threequarters of Turks, Pakistanis and Indonesians also expressed hostile views of Jews.

Throughout the Arab and Muslim world, genocidal anti-Semitic propaganda is all-pervasive. And as Prof. Robert Wistrich has written, “The ubiquity of the hate and prejudice exemplified by this hard-core anti-Semitism undoubtedly exceeds the demonization of earlier historical periods – whether the Christian Middle Ages, the Spanish Inquisition, the Dreyfus Affair in France, or the Judeophobia of Tsarist Russia. The only comparable example would be that of Nazi Germany in which we can also speak of an ‘eliminationist anti- Semitism’ of genocidal dimensions, which ultimately culminated in the Holocaust.”

“That is why for most Israelis, the issue of how Arabs are governed is as irrelevant as the results of the 1852 US presidential elections were for American blacks. Since both parties excluded them, they were indifferent to who was in power.”

“One of the more troubling aspects of the Western media coverage of the tumult in Egypt over the past two weeks has been the media’s move to airbrush out all evidence of the protesters’ anti- SemitismThe fact that the one Jewish state stands alone against 23 Arab states and 57 Muslim states whose populations are united in their hatred of Jews necessarily requires a revision of the narrative. And so their hatred is ignored.”

In order to sift through the American Big Media spin regarding the MB, one must acknowledge that there is a now a double-sided looking-glass media environment in America, one which began to polarize during the George W. Bush era. Two distinct sets of national media outlets report two different and often distinctly clashing sets of facts on nearly every world and national event: the “left’s” version and world view vs. the “right’s” version and world view. Independent impartial reporting and actual journalism has all but disappeared.

This was made clear to me just the other day when I asked a close friend what she knew of, and thought about the “Muslim Brotherhood.” She immediately began quoting the “Democracy Now” website where she gets 90% of her news.

Somewhere along the way my friend had concluded that the Muslim Brotherhood was and still is a calm, peaceful, nonviolent law abiding moderate spiritual movement in the Mideast which advocates for peaceful unity of Muslims around the world. She knew nothing about their goal of global Jihad, of a world ruled by Mullahs under sharia law, and their desire to “die for Allah” as their highest life’s aspiration. How she came to this conclusion I will never know, but my gut and everything I have ever read about Wahhabi Islam screams that just the opposite is true about the Muslim Brotherhood. I would add that Hillary Clinton is in way over her head here.

The Muslim Brotherhood will and often does resort to violence to achieve their goals.

To understand the Muslim Brotherhood of 2011 we have to go all the way back to the early 20th century in 1902. The MB is rooted in the early 20th century redrafting of fundamentalist Wahhabi Islam, which was revived between 1902 and 1928 by an Islamic religious radical, a Wahhabi tribesman named Ibn Saud, who was intent on conquering and restructuring the immense land region and locale that we now know as Saudi Arabia.

Wahhabi Islam is a radical fundamentalist sect of Islam which was founded in the 18th century by Mohammad Ibn Addul Al-Wahhab. Wahhabism is based on the premise that any teachings added to Islam after the tenth century are false.

It is the most severe retrograde version of the Islamic faith, and is the driving force behind the modern radical Islamic global Jihad movement. Wahhabism envisions a global Islamic empire, ruled by Wahhabi Holy men, based on this strict and puritanical interpretation of tenth century Islamic teachings, with any other forms of law to become null and void. It is, to put it bluntly, a regression of all societal laws back to the tenth century’s understanding of the world and how it should be ruled.

During that period between 1902 and 1927 Saudi Arabia was terrorized by the newly resurrected “Wahhabi” Muslims seeking to enforce their version of radical Islam onto the surrounding tribes, villages and communities. Violence was commonplace. The Wahhabi religious extremists were eventually routed from Saudi Arabia, and many of them went into exile in Egypt in the early 1920s. That is the backdrop for how Egypt eventually became a hotbed of religious Islamic extremism which eventually set it’s sights on raising a global Jihad aimed at destroying America and the West.

In 1928 the Muslim Brotherhood was founded in Egypt. It’s goal was stated to eventually achieve global Islamic rule under strict Sharia Law. This would be done via global Jihad.

In Egypt the Muslim Brotherhood was organized by Hassan El Banna. Banna’s organization became the genesis for today’s Egyptian Jihadi and Hamas. The Muslim Brotherhood is most definitely rooted in Wahhabi Islam, the most radicalized, regressive and violent form of Islam.

One of the clearly stated goals of Wahhabi Islam is to rid the Mideast of all non-Arabs by whatever means necessary. This dark and racist eugenics doctrine advocating of the elimination of all non-Arabs from the Middle East is what gave the Nazi Storm Troopers a “goal in common” with the members of the 1930s and 40s era Muslim Brotherhood, and was the basis for their deepening bonds during World War II.

See http://www.danielpipes.org/comments/163591

“In the 1920’s there was a young Egyptian named al Bana. And al Bana formed this nationalist group called the Muslim Brotherhood. Al Bana was a devout admirer of Adolph Hitler and wrote to him frequently. So persistent was he in his admiration of the new Nazi Party that in the 1930’s, al-Bana and the MUSLIM BROTHERHOOD became a SECRET ARM OF NAZI INTELLIGENCE.

The Arab Nazis had much in common with the new Nazi doctrines. They hated Jews; they hated democracy; and they hated the Western culture. It became the official policy of the Third Reich to secretly develop the Muslim Brotherhood as the fifth Parliament, an army inside Egypt.

…We will not stop at this point [i.e., "freeing Egypt from secularism and modernity"], but will pursue this evil force to its own lands, invade its Western heartland, and struggle to overcome it until all the world shouts by the name of the Prophet and the teachings of Islam spread throughout the world. Only then will Muslims achieve their fundamental goal… and all religion will be exclusively for Allah.

http://www.mideastweb.org/Middle-East-Encyclopedia/hassan_al-banna.htm

Al-Banna was quite clear that his goal was not solely an anti-colonialist struggle in Egypt nor the refurbishment of Islam, but rather a world revolution that would establish Islam as the dominant religion of the entire world: (Habeck, Knowing the enemy p. 120)”

This eugenics philosophy is aimed directly at the elimination of Jews, the Jewish nation, and of Israel itself. Also included in this 1930s era ethnic cleansing plan of the Muslim Brotherhood was the elimination of all Americans and westerners. Most Americans are woefully uninformed about how severe the doctrines and beliefs of Wahhabi Islam really are. It is no different than what Hitler tried to do during World War II, with his stated aim of eliminating all Jews from the face of the earth.

As far as Wahhabi Islamic Jihadists are concerned, Israel has no right to exist whatsoever.

It goes without saying that the Muslim Brotherhood shares this Wahhabi sentiment. In fact, between 1933 and 2002, the Muslim Brotherhood united in premise and intention with the Third Reich.

In 1933 the leader of the Muslim Brotherhood, Mohammad Amin al-Husayni, who also the Grand Mufti of the Islamic faith in Jerusalem, visited the Third Reich and was photographed frequently touring the SS Storm Trooper ranks with high ranking German SS officers. He spent World War II at Hitler’s side in Germany.

It should be noted as well that in 1933 Nazi parties sprang up throughout the Arab world. Abdul Hammal Nasser was the Egyptian head of the Muslim Brotherhood in 1933. He went on to later become the President of Egypt. Egypt’s early 1930s political slogan: “One Folk, One Party One Leader” was a direct translation of a German Nazi political slogan.

Between 1939 and 1945, Syria’s version of the Muslim Brotherhood was known as “The Social Nationalist Party”, led by Anton Saada. Saada was also known as the “Syrian Fuhrer”.

The Nazi Muslim troops who were enthusiastically recruited by Mohammad Amin al-Husayni for Hitler were often referred to by members of the Third Reich as the “Cream of Islam.” This recruiting and raising of Muslim Nazi armies in the Mideast took place between 1939 and 1945.

Mohammad Amin al-Husayni,  In office from:
1922–1937[ Biographical data from Wikipedia glosses over Al-Husayni's extensive Nazi Training, Nazi War Activities and his devotion to Adolf Hitler's dream of exterminating the Jews ]“Mohammad Amin al-Husayni (Arabic: محمد أمين الحسيني‎, often printed with the French transliteration al-Husseini,[1] 1895/1897 – July 4, 1974), a member of the al-Husayni clan of Jerusalem, was a Palestinian Arab nationalist and Muslim leader in the British Mandate of Palestine. In a report of recently declassified information by the American government and published in the National Archives, the British head of Palestine’s Criminal Investigation Division told an American military attaché that the Mufti might be the only person who could unite the Palestine Arabs and “cool off the Zionists.” [2]. From 1921 to 1948, he was the Grand Mufti of Jerusalem, and, as a virulent antisemite,[3][4][5] he played a key role in opposition to Zionism and a state for the Jews living in Palestine and collaborated with the Nazis[6].

As early as 1920, Al-Husayni was active in both opposing the British in order to secure the independence of Palestine as an Arab state and led violent riots against Jews [7] opposing the establishment of a National home for the Jewish people in Palestine. His oppositional role peaked during the 1936-1939 Arab revolt in Palestine. In 1937, wanted by the British, he fled Palestine and took refuge successively in the French Mandate of Lebanon, the Kingdom of Iraq, Fascist Italy and finally Nazi Germany. In Germany he met dictator Adolf Hitler in 1941.[8] He asked Hitler to back Arab independence and requested that Nazi Germany oppose, as part of the Pan-Arab struggle, the establishment of a Jewish national home in Palestine (the future creation of Israel).[9] The Muslim Mufti was paid “an absolute fortune” of 50,000 marks a month (when a German field marshal was making 25,000 marks a year).[2] According the the American report, al-Husayni energetically recruited Muslims for the SS, the Nazi Party’s elite military command, was promised that he would be installed as the leader of Palestine after German troops had driven out the British and exterminated the more than 350,000 Jews living there[10]. During the 1948 Arab-Israeli War he represented the Arab Higher Committee and opposed both the 1947 UN Partition Plan and King Abdullah’s ambitions for expanding Jordan by capturing parts of Palestine.

Husayni himself was allowed to flee after the war to Syria — he was in the custody of the French, who did not want to alienate Middle East regimes [4]. After the 1948 War and the subsequent Palestinian exodus, his claims to leadership were discredited in the eyes of some, and he was eventually sidelined by the Palestine Liberation Organization and lost most of his remaining political influence.[11] Al-Husayni died in Beirut, Lebanon in 1974.”

Al-Husayni was fervent in his devotion to the Nazi cause and imported Hitler’s Nazi doctrines and methodologies into Egypt and the Mideast by 1941.

He eventually became a wanted man and fled to Egypt to live in hiding. He was wanted in Great Britain and in Yugoslavia in 1944 for war crimes and crimes against humanity. Just in case the reader is not making these connections, let me make this clear. The man who founded the Arab League in 1944, who was instrumental in molding the Muslim Brotherhood was the same man, a top Muslim religious Mufti,  who also raised Nazi armies in the Mideast under Hitler’s direct guidance, and was both a radical Islamic Muslim, as well as a Muslim Nazi, who murdered via “ethnic cleansing” entire groups of Jews, gypsies and other ethnic minorities in the Mideast and Europe during WWII.

By now the reader should understand that there is a direct historical relationship between Wahhabi Islam, Nazi racial extermination and eugenics philosophies, the Muslim religious fanaticism of eliminating all non-Arab “infidels”, the formation of the original Arab League, the earlier formative years of the Muslim Brotherhood and the current stated goals and intentions of radical Islamic global Jihad. This is a toxic and murderous philosophical brew and there is no real or actual Godliness in it. Using the pretext of religious piety and false spiritual reasoning to justify the mass carnage which will eventuate from any “global jihad” is, in and of itself, blasphemy against the Holy Spirit.

Radical Islam via the Wahhabi sect’s present philosophical platform is a false religion, based  on hatred, misogyny, cruelty, barbarism, racism, and abhorrent ethnic cleaning. The fact that these beliefs are mandated by so called religious “law” aka “sharia law” is a clear example of cognitive dissonance and an oxymoron.  That is the same dark and misdirected doctrine of hate which became the philosophical platform which gave birth to both the Muslim Brotherhood in 1928, and to the original Arab League later, in 1944, right after the collapse of Hitler’s Nazi Germany.

It should be noted that Al-Husayni, although on the run by 1940, was elected “in Absentia” as the head of the Muslim Brotherhood in Jerusalem. He also played a pivotal role in the formation of the Arab League in 1944. Among the Arab League’s original stated goals were:

1) Racial ethnic cleansing of the Mideast

2) global Wahhabi Islamic rule under Sharia Law

3) the elimination from the Miseast of all non Arab races, primarily Jews and American / Westerners

4) The destruction of western civilization via global Jihad

The founding countries were Egypt, Iraq, Saudi Arabia, Jordan, Lebanon, Syria and Yemen. Mohammad Amin al-Husayni was the President and Co-founder of the League in 1944.

{Above} The Formation of the Arab League in 1944

After the war, the perpetration of Nazi doctrines by the Muslim Brotherhood continued unabated. Between 1949 and 1952 under the auspices of the alleged “Odessa Network” many fleeing Nazis joined the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt and Syria. Nazi experts in the dissemination of SS style propaganda flooded into the government and armed forces of Egypt and Syria.

In 1948 a young Egyptian born Yasser Arafat joined the Muslim Brotherhood and from age 17 on Arafat was personally mentored and trained by Al-Husayni. Yasser Arafat is a name very familiar to baby boomers in my age group.

In later years Arafat’s radical PLO, the Palestinian Liberation Organization, waged incessant bloody guerrilla war and acts of terror upon Israel for over 20 years. These nonstop terror attacks and brutal suicide bombings plagued Israel throughout Arafat’s reign as head of the PLO. The bloodshed was practically nonstop. If you still have not made up your mind about the Muslim Brotherhood take a quick look back in time to the days of Yasser Arafat and you will recall the bloodbath which marked his leadership of the Palestinian people.

Mohammad Amin al-Husayni provided safe haven for these fleeing Nazis in Egypt. In America, Nazi war criminals were secretly provided safe haven in exchange for their rocketeering and other high technology skills under Operation Paperclip. This grisly and shameful action on the part of our government was only recently admitted, and created a media firestorm here and abroad.

Al-Husayni’s resume of diabolical evil in the name of Islam eventually became even more unbelievable after the war. He collaborated with Swiss banker Francois’ Genoud, who had handled banking crime for the Third Reich, and together they allegedly funded and financed activities of the Odessa Network in Egypt with funds that were plundered from prominent European Jewish families who had been murdered by the Nazis.

Every American who understands how high the stakes are in the Middle East should realize that the historical roots of today’s Muslim Brotherhood crossed paths with Hitler’s dream of world conquest nearly 80 years ago, and at that time the two philosophies converged in their shared hatred of the Jewish people and all non-Arabs. Racism is racism is racism. There are no other names for it. Political and so called spiritual movements which are founded on such racist doctrines are destined to generate violence by their inherent natures. Choosing to enter into negotiations with the Muslim Brotherhood is a dance with the devil that should not be undertaken under any circumstances. Once again our American leaders in the White House are failing the Will of the American people.

Historically, our country has NEVER negotiated with racist terrorists, and we have always been an ally to Israel. We are betraying our better natures, ourselves and Israel by considering any negotiations with the Muslim Brotherhood.

How the Egyptian Revolt Will Recast the Middle East

Pope Benedict Announces His Resignation Due to Advancing Age, Era of the Last Pope Now Imminent

English: Pope Benedict XVI during general audition

Pope Benedict XVI during general audition (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

According to the prophecy of Saint Malachy, Pope Benedict XVI is the 111th Pope.

the devout Christian Saint Malachy had prophesied centuries ago that there would be 112 Popes. He named them in turn, stunning the monastic community. The last Pope, Malachy prophesied, would be “Peter the Roman” or “Petras Romanus,” who would lead the church during a time of great world tribulation, culminating in the advent of the Antichrist, the destruction of Rome and the Judgment of the World.

With the Pope’s announcement today that he will soon be stepping down due to the difficulties of advancing age, we will witness the selection of the last Pope this spring, if you believe Saint Malachy’s prophecy of the 112 Popes and “the last Pope.”

The Prophecy of the Pope: definition

“The prophecy was first published in 1595 by Arnold de Wyon, a Benedictine historian, as part of his book Lignum Vitæ. Wyon attributed the list to Saint Malachy, the 12th‑century bishop of Armagh in Ireland. According to the traditional account, in 1139, Malachy was summoned to Rome by Pope Innocent II. While in Rome, Malachy purportedly experienced a vision of future popes, which he recorded as a sequence of cryptic phrases. This manuscript was then deposited in the Roman Archive, and thereafter forgotten about until its rediscovery in 1590.”

Every Pope to come was accurately named and described by Saint Malachy in his prophecy, a spiritual feat unheard of, inspiring millions to take the content of his prophecy more seriously as the centuries have passed.

I have gathered some videos on this topic today, and I will be adding them to this post as I review each one, but I wanted to get this out right away. This story will be all over the world media for days on end and it is HUGE. Check this post every hour or so for updates.

Bodies of Water Become Blood Red, Occurring All Around the World

“The third angel poured out his bowl on the rivers and springs of water, and they became blood.” – Revelation 16:4

Updated on 7.25.2014

It’s happening again: this time it’s happening in China and the photos are both disconcerting and dramatic. No matter what scientists or geologists believe might be the technical cause of this sudden and unsettling phenomenon, I believe that God is speaking to His people through this manifestation. I believe He is saying that “too much innocent blood is being shed on this earth” due to hatred and reckless ongoing war. He is warning the world. He is demanding an end to the “rivers of innocent blood” which are now being spilled in nation upon nation as innocent lives are lost to murder, war and Islamic religious fanaticism gone berserk.

River In China Mysteriously Turns Bloody Red Overnight

PHOTO: The water in a river in Xinmeizhou village in eastern Chinas Zhejiang province turned red overnight, baffling locals, July 25, 2014.

PHOTO: The river in Xinmeizhou village in eastern Chinas Zhejiang province quickly filled up with the red colored liquid which had a strange smell, according to villagers, July 25, 2014.

In October of 2012 I reported:

It’s a disconcerting natural phenomenon that is being documented around the world, and it has been happening for several years. It’s also a biblical phenomena that most Christians are familiar with being prophesied in the Bible. The most recent body of water to suddenly turn bright blood red is a large lake located in the Rhone Delta region in France.

The phenomenon was discovered and photographed and by Russian tourists traveling in the region, who took the photos below. Click any photo to see the enlargement.

The most peculiar thing about France’s suddenly blood red lake is that other bodies of water which are nearby remain completely normal and are unaffected. What’s more, red bodies of water and red rivers are appearing all over the world, and they have been for several years now. It even rained red water in India recently.

Is it a phytoplankton bloom, excess minerals and salt, an algae bloom, or is it really bible prophecy fulfilled?  The scientific explanation for the blood red lake in France is an excess of salt. Other manifestations of red water in other parts of the world have yet to be fully explained by science. Each case is different. The re-occurring natural phenomenon of bodies of water turning red around the world seems oddly timed and concurrent with many other “end-times” prophecies and phenomenon.

I find in all of this irrefutable evidence of not only the Providence of God, but the all knowing and far seeing nature of His Presence as well. There is no explanation which can ever be given which can explain away the Bible prophecies from centuries ago which predicted this end times phenomenon, even though in modern times it does have a scientific explanation. Science has to stop and ponder that God pre-knew that bodies of water would turn blood red with increasing frequency during the early years of the 21st century, and directed His prophets to record certain passages in scripture which refer to this incredible end times phenomenon.

Below is a list of locations around the world where the water has turned bright blood red in recent years:

Yangtze River China

Texas

Rhone Delta France

India

Antarctica

Russia, Ukraine, Sea of Azov

Memphis Tennessee

See http://www.examiner.com/article/blood-red-lake-southern-france-startles-tourists-bible-prophecy-or-salt

Cited:

On Friday, August 10, 2012, the waters of a lake in The Camargue, a marshy area in the Rhone delta, turned “blood red.” The scene certainly baffled holiday makers. The strange thing about it is lakes on the left and right of the red lake are absolutely as you’d expect with them to be, with normal water.

Some say the French lake runs red with… salt? Maybe so, but what about all the other lakes, river, waterfalls, streams, ponds, and reservoirs without salt that are turning red around the world with some regularity now – and don’t forget the red rain in India.

Neurosurgeon Has Near-Death Experience, Discovers That “Heaven is Real.”

This article re-posted below is now taking the world by storm. It first appeared in The Daily Beast news blog and crossed my desk about a week ago. I am re-posting it for guests and subscribers below. You can read and research the near-death experiences recorded from thousands people all around the world, in dozens of different countries and from many diverse religious backgrounds at http://nderf.org

See the original article at http://www.thedailybeast.com/newsweek/2012/10/07/proof-of-heaven-a-doctor-s-experience-with-the-afterlife.html

“She looked at me with a look that, if you saw it for five seconds, would make your whole life up to that point worth living, no matter what had happened in it so far…. without using any words, she spoke to me. The message went through me like a wind, and I instantly understood that it was true. I knew so in the same way that I knew that the world around us was real—was not some fantasy, passing and insubstantial.”

Heaven Is Real: A Doctor’s Experience With the Afterlife

Oct 8, 2012 1:00 AM EDT

When a neurosurgeon found himself in a coma, he experienced things he never thought possible—a journey to the afterlife.

As a neurosurgeon, I did not believe in the phenomenon of near-death experiences. I grew up in a scientific world, the son of a neurosurgeon. I followed my father’s path and became an academic neurosurgeon, teaching at Harvard Medical School and other universities. I understand what happens to the brain when people are near death, and I had always believed there were good scientific explanations for the heavenly out-of-body journeys described by those who narrowly escaped death.

newsweek-oct-15-cover-tease

The brain is an astonishingly sophisticated but extremely delicate mechanism. Reduce the amount of oxygen it receives by the smallest amount and it will react. It was no big surprise that people who had undergone severe trauma would return from their experiences with strange stories. But that didn’t mean they had journeyed anywhere real.

Although I considered myself a faithful Christian, I was so more in name than in actual belief. I didn’t begrudge those who wanted to believe that Jesus was more than simply a good man who had suffered at the hands of the world. I sympathized deeply with those who wanted to believe that there was a God somewhere out there who loved us unconditionally. In fact, I envied such people the security that those beliefs no doubt provided. But as a scientist, I simply knew better than to believe them myself.

In the fall of 2008, however, after seven days in a coma during which the human part of my brain, the neocortex, was inactivated, I experienced something so profound that it gave me a scientific reason to believe in consciousness after death.

I know how pronouncements like mine sound to skeptics, so I will tell my story with the logic and language of the scientist I am.

Very early one morning four years ago, I awoke with an extremely intense headache. Within hours, my entire cortex—the part of the brain that controls thought and emotion and that in essence makes us human—had shut down. Doctors at Lynchburg General Hospital in Virginia, a hospital where I myself worked as a neurosurgeon, determined that I had somehow contracted a very rare bacterial meningitis that mostly attacks newborns. E. coli bacteria had penetrated my cerebrospinal fluid and were eating my brain.

When I entered the emergency room that morning, my chances of survival in anything beyond a vegetative state were already low. They soon sank to near nonexistent. For seven days I lay in a deep coma, my body unresponsive, my higher-order brain functions totally offline.

Then, on the morning of my seventh day in the hospital, as my doctors weighed whether to discontinue treatment, my eyes popped open.

Heaven
‘You have nothing to fear.’ ‘There is nothing you can do wrong.’ The message flooded me with a vast and crazy sensation of relief. (Photo illustration by Newsweek; Source: Buena Vista Images-Getty Images)

There is no scientific explanation for the fact that while my body lay in coma, my mind—my conscious, inner self—was alive and well. While the neurons of my cortex were stunned to complete inactivity by the bacteria that had attacked them, my brain-free consciousness journeyed to another, larger dimension of the universe: a dimension I’d never dreamed existed and which the old, pre-coma me would have been more than happy to explain was a simple impossibility.

But that dimension—in rough outline, the same one described by countless subjects of near-death experiences and other mystical states—is there. It exists, and what I saw and learned there has placed me quite literally in a new world: a world where we are much more than our brains and bodies, and where death is not the end of consciousness but rather a chapter in a vast, and incalculably positive, journey.

I’m not the first person to have discovered evidence that consciousness exists beyond the body. Brief, wonderful glimpses of this realm are as old as human history. But as far as I know, no one before me has ever traveled to this dimension (a) while their cortex was completely shut down, and (b) while their body was under minute medical observation, as mine was for the full seven days of my coma.

All the chief arguments against near-death experiences suggest that these experiences are the results of minimal, transient, or partial malfunctioning of the cortex. My near-death experience, however, took place not while my cortex was malfunctioning, but while it was simply off. This is clear from the severity and duration of my meningitis, and from the global cortical involvement documented by CT scans and neurological examinations. According to current medical understanding of the brain and mind, there is absolutely no way that I could have experienced even a dim and limited consciousness during my time in the coma, much less the hyper-vivid and completely coherent odyssey I underwent.

It took me months to come to terms with what happened to me. Not just the medical impossibility that I had been conscious during my coma, but—more importantly—the things that happened during that time. Toward the beginning of my adventure, I was in a place of clouds. Big, puffy, pink-white ones that showed up sharply against the deep blue-black sky.

Heaven Newsweek Covers
Reliving History: The search for the meaning of the afterlife is as old as humanity itself. Over the years Newsweek has run numerous covers about religion, God, and that search. As Dr. Alexander says, it’s unlikely we’ll know the answer in our lifetimes, but that doesn’t mean we won’t keep asking.

Higher than the clouds—immeasurably higher—flocks of transparent, shimmering beings arced across the sky, leaving long, streamerlike lines behind them.

Birds? Angels? These words registered later, when I was writing down my recollections. But neither of these words do justice to the beings themselves, which were quite simply different from anything I have known on this planet. They were more advanced. Higher forms.

A sound, huge and booming like a glorious chant, came down from above, and I wondered if the winged beings were producing it. Again, thinking about it later, it occurred to me that the joy of these creatures, as they soared along, was such that they had to make this noise—that if the joy didn’t come out of them this way then they would simply not otherwise be able to contain it. The sound was palpable and almost material, like a rain that you can feel on your skin but doesn’t get you wet.

Seeing and hearing were not separate in this place where I now was. I could hear the visual beauty of the silvery bodies of those scintillating beings above, and I could see the surging, joyful perfection of what they sang. It seemed that you could not look at or listen to anything in this world without becoming a part of it—without joining with it in some mysterious way. Again, from my present perspective, I would suggest that you couldn’t look at anything in that world at all, for the word “at” itself implies a separation that did not exist there. Everything was distinct, yet everything was also a part of everything else, like the rich and intermingled designs on a Persian carpet … or a butterfly’s wing.

It gets stranger still. For most of my journey, someone else was with me. A woman. She was young, and I remember what she looked like in complete detail. She had high cheekbones and deep-blue eyes. Golden brown tresses framed her lovely face. When first I saw her, we were riding along together on an intricately patterned surface, which after a moment I recognized as the wing of a butterfly. In fact, millions of butterflies were all around us—vast fluttering waves of them, dipping down into the woods and coming back up around us again. It was a river of life and color, moving through the air. The woman’s outfit was simple, like a peasant’s, but its colors—powder blue, indigo, and pastel orange-peach—had the same overwhelming, super-vivid aliveness that everything else had. She looked at me with a look that, if you saw it for five seconds, would make your whole life up to that point worth living, no matter what had happened in it so far. It was not a romantic look. It was not a look of friendship. It was a look that was somehow beyond all these, beyond all the different compartments of love we have down here on earth. It was something higher, holding all those other kinds of love within itself while at the same time being much bigger than all of them.

Without using any words, she spoke to me. The message went through me like a wind, and I instantly understood that it was true. I knew so in the same way that I knew that the world around us was real—was not some fantasy, passing and insubstantial.

The message had three parts, and if I had to translate them into earthly language, I’d say they ran something like this:

“You are loved and cherished, dearly, forever.”

“You have nothing to fear.”

“There is nothing you can do wrong.”

The message flooded me with a vast and crazy sensation of relief. It was like being handed the rules to a game I’d been playing all my life without ever fully understanding it.

“We will show you many things here,” the woman said, again, without actually using these words but by driving their conceptual essence directly into me. “But eventually, you will go back.”

To this, I had only one question.

Back where?

Near Death Experiences
The universe as I experienced it in my coma is … the same one that both Einstein and Jesus were speaking of in their (very) different ways. (Ed Morris / Getty Images)

A warm wind blew through, like the kind that spring up on the most perfect summer days, tossing the leaves of the trees and flowing past like heavenly water. A divine breeze. It changed everything, shifting the world around me into an even higher octave, a higher vibration.

Although I still had little language function, at least as we think of it on earth, I began wordlessly putting questions to this wind, and to the divine being that I sensed at work behind or within it.

Where is this place?

Who am I?

Why am I here?

Each time I silently put one of these questions out, the answer came instantly in an explosion of light, color, love, and beauty that blew through me like a crashing wave. What was important about these blasts was that they didn’t simply silence my questions by overwhelming them. They answered them, but in a way that bypassed language. Thoughts entered me directly. But it wasn’t thought like we experience on earth. It wasn’t vague, immaterial, or abstract. These thoughts were solid and immediate—hotter than fire and wetter than water—and as I received them I was able to instantly and effortlessly understand concepts that would have taken me years to fully grasp in my earthly life.

I continued moving forward and found myself entering an immense void, completely dark, infinite in size, yet also infinitely comforting. Pitch-black as it was, it was also brimming over with light: a light that seemed to come from a brilliant orb that I now sensed near me. The orb was a kind of “interpreter” between me and this vast presence surrounding me. It was as if I were being born into a larger world, and the universe itself was like a giant cosmic womb, and the orb (which I sensed was somehow connected with, or even identical to, the woman on the butterfly wing) was guiding me through it.

Later, when I was back, I found a quotation by the 17th-century Christian poet Henry Vaughan that came close to describing this magical place, this vast, inky-black core that was the home of the Divine itself.

“There is, some say, in God a deep but dazzling darkness …”

That was it exactly: an inky darkness that was also full to brimming with light.

I know full well how extraordinary, how frankly unbelievable, all this sounds. Had someone—even a doctor—told me a story like this in the old days, I would have been quite certain that they were under the spell of some delusion. But what happened to me was, far from being delusional, as real or more real than any event in my life. That includes my wedding day and the birth of my two sons.

What happened to me demands explanation.

Modern physics tells us that the universe is a unity—that it is undivided. Though we seem to live in a world of separation and difference, physics tells us that beneath the surface, every object and event in the universe is completely woven up with every other object and event. There is no true separation.

Before my experience these ideas were abstractions. Today they are realities. Not only is the universe defined by unity, it is also—I now know—defined by love. The universe as I experienced it in my coma is—I have come to see with both shock and joy—the same one that both Einstein and Jesus were speaking of in their (very) different ways.

I’ve spent decades as a neurosurgeon at some of the most prestigious medical institutions in our country. I know that many of my peers hold—as I myself did—to the theory that the brain, and in particular the cortex, generates consciousness and that we live in a universe devoid of any kind of emotion, much less the unconditional love that I now know God and the universe have toward us. But that belief, that theory, now lies broken at our feet. What happened to me destroyed it, and I intend to spend the rest of my life investigating the true nature of consciousness and making the fact that we are more, much more, than our physical brains as clear as I can, both to my fellow scientists and to people at large.

I don’t expect this to be an easy task, for the reasons I described above. When the castle of an old scientific theory begins to show fault lines, no one wants to pay attention at first. The old castle simply took too much work to build in the first place, and if it falls, an entirely new one will have to be constructed in its place.

I learned this firsthand after I was well enough to get back out into the world and talk to others—people, that is, other than my long-suffering wife, Holley, and our two sons—about what had happened to me. The looks of polite disbelief, especially among my medical friends, soon made me realize what a task I would have getting people to understand the enormity of what I had seen and experienced that week while my brain was down.

One of the few places I didn’t have trouble getting my story across was a place I’d seen fairly little of before my experience: church. The first time I entered a church after my coma, I saw everything with fresh eyes. The colors of the stained-glass windows recalled the luminous beauty of the landscapes I’d seen in the world above. The deep bass notes of the organ reminded me of how thoughts and emotions in that world are like waves that move through you. And, most important, a painting of Jesus breaking bread with his disciples evoked the message that lay at the very heart of my journey: that we are loved and accepted unconditionally by a God even more grand and unfathomably glorious than the one I’d learned of as a child in Sunday school.

Today many believe that the living spiritual truths of religion have lost their power, and that science, not faith, is the road to truth. Before my experience I strongly suspected that this was the case myself.

But I now understand that such a view is far too simple. The plain fact is that the materialist picture of the body and brain as the producers, rather than the vehicles, of human consciousness is doomed. In its place a new view of mind and body will emerge, and in fact is emerging already. This view is scientific and spiritual in equal measure and will value what the greatest scientists of history themselves always valued above all: truth.

This new picture of reality will take a long time to put together. It won’t be finished in my time, or even, I suspect, my sons’ either. In fact, reality is too vast, too complex, and too irreducibly mysterious for a full picture of it ever to be absolutely complete. But in essence, it will show the universe as evolving, multi-dimensional, and known down to its every last atom by a God who cares for us even more deeply and fiercely than any parent ever loved their child.

I’m still a doctor, and still a man of science every bit as much as I was before I had my experience. But on a deep level I’m very different from the person I was before, because I’ve caught a glimpse of this emerging picture of reality. And you can believe me when I tell you that it will be worth every bit of the work it will take us, and those who come after us, to get it right.

Alexander discusses his experience on the Science channel‘s ‘Through the Wormhole.’
