Today’s Breaking News in the Mideast:
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.
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.
ISIS Jihad Insurgents take Mosul. Hogue Prediction of New Civil War in Iraq and Libya for 2014 fulfilled. What is next?

My deep gut has been telling me for some time that there is a federally sponsored internet “news blackout” going on regarding Planet X aka Nibiru. Videos come online, then they disappear. Some of my news blogs behave oddly when I try to post about Nibiru. I find ample information on the topic in other countries’ media outlets [ today I cite Italy and South America ] but a real sparsity of information in the US. Astronomers keep turning up dead.
Yet citizen reporters like me keep returning to the Nibiru story over and over again. There is literally something in my own soul compelling me to keep researching this topic in the face of all ridicule. I can’t shake the fact that every Bible prophecy about the End Times that was given of old is already coming true, and following that logic alone, scriptural passages which describe some some of global astronomy related weather or earth-changing event indicate to me that a future encounter with a Nibiru fly-by in our solar system MUST still be waiting in our future. The big question is WHEN. As for dead astronomers, if we all keep reporting and researching Nibiru, what do they plan to do? Kill all the citizen journalists everywhere who blog about Nibiru?
If citizen journalists whose blogs’ have strong followings, who wrote frequently about Nibiru, begin turning up dead in 2013, then the people of the world will know their governments are collectively killing off the truth reporters, thus indicating that the return of Nibiru is real.
What if we had the times and dates wrong? What if the Nibiru fly-by is still about 20 years ahead in our future, give or take a few years? How would we know if astronomers are being killed off systematically to silence their warnings? What if we allowed the NWO’s Illuminati coverup and global news blackout on Nibiru astronomy to lull the world’s people into a false sense of relief that no rogue planet or brown dwarf would be paying our solar system a 3600 year return visit?
And what if the Holy Spirit continues to “move people from all walks of life” in every nation on earth to continue to do their own research and reporting on this species threatening future event, so that We the People of planet earth can collectively attempt to make plans to survive such a catastrophic close encounter? All those “what ifs” bring me back to posting about Nibiru this month, and here is what I am finding. This post will be updated several times so if you are reading this off your email , go to the original post on the blog to read the latest updates.
The asteroid is about the size of the state of Texas in the meantime continues to travel in space. NASA neither confirmed nor denied. And this is the big problem: the absence of an official denial is not the best way to proceed in order to reassure the inhabitants of our planet or to throw water on the fire.
+ Nibiru Asteroid threat to Earth – Voceditalia.it
+ Voice – Nibiru or Maya? It ‘s just a matter of time …
+ Nibiru: NASA hiding something – Voceditalia.it
+ Voice – Nibiru: NASA hiding something
NASA although it is known that hides a lot of information, NASA scientists have announced their position being more than simply claim that it is a fake or Doomsday (Doomsday) in English.
Nibiru the asteroid approaching Earth and NASA remains silent is more than understandable, so it does not expand the panic among the population and until it has the necessary data to make an official publication on page Official web space agency.
Anyway rumors say the asteroid Nibiru is not as big as expected, so it would not be a planet, but rather an asteroid the size of Texas, but anyway in the case of impact with Earth change or cycle was insured because it would produce a similar impact that caused the extinction of the dinosaurs some 65 million years.
The date of the disaster on the possible impact of Nibiru but not detailed in any of the rumors or leaks, discarding those that say they will be on December 21, 2012, it is believed that the impact would approach or sometime between November and December 2012. For this reason NASA has not commented since the panic could break out among the population to be about important dates by millions of gullible doomsday for the aforementioned date December 21, 2012, fueled largely by the end of the Mayan calendar for that exact date. As the means of enormous prestige as the BBC, CNN, Aljazeera and others.

[ Preface: I’ve been a student of the Urantia Book for nearly 30 years and I know the papers well. I have always known the day would come when archeological evidence was discovered which would corroborate what the papers have said all along – that human civilization goes back nearly a half million years or more. This most recent 1994 discovery out of Kurdistan pushes back the official date of human settlements another 6,000 years. But there will be many more digs unearthed in the next twenty years which will reveal even more far ancient human settlements. Historians will either throw up their hands in despair, find another profession, or re-discover their own deepest integrity and continually re-dedicate themselves to the publishing of the truth. There will be no other option. ]
Urantia Book: (901.2) 81:1.7 For thousands of years the descendants of Adam had grown wheat and barley, as improved in the Garden, throughout the highlands of the upper border of Mesopotamia. The descendants of Adam and Adamson here met, traded, and socially mingled.
The video covers a broad range of topics, but what’s noteworthy is the information about a recent archeological discovery in Kurdistan of remains of a civilization more than 12,000 years old, older than any Sumerian era site in the Mideast. This discovery pushes back the official date of the advent of human civilization by another 6,000 years, corroborating certain papers presented in The Urantia Book which reveal that the very first human settlement on earth was established nearly 500,000 years ago, in the far distant past of Mesopotamia, at the headwaters of the Persian Gulf.
The archeological discovery of a 13,000 year old human settlement in Kurdistan at Gobleki Tepe proves that our present understanding of the age of human civilization is in error and needs correcting as we discover more far-ancient ancient ruins. The discovery provides more hard scientific evidence that the origins of human civilization are much older than previously determined. History authors may find that they will be re-writing the history books repeatedly in the next 20 years as more significant archeological finds push back the dating system for the ancestry of modern human civilization.
Before I set forth this next paragraph please allow me to reassure readers that I am not only a Bible student as a modern Christian, but a passionate follower of science, astronomy, anthropology, and archeology as well. I find no conflict whatsoever between the study of science and the practice of religion and faith in God.
One of the most tragic mistakes made by modern Christendom has been the erroneous dating of the history of human civilization and the age of the earth based on Old Testament accounts of a six day creation via allegory set forth in the Book of Genesis. When allegorical writing is taken as literal fact misunderstanding begins. We no longer practice medicine as they did in the middle ages, using “blood-letting” as a primary medical treatment for ailments. Neither do we build homes as they did in 300 B.C. But many modern Christians are still trying to date the age of the earth and humanity by the records of the Old Testament, specifically the KJV Book of Genesis, and this error has created havoc in modern Christian churches, driving away millions of would-be Christians among bright scientifically minded young people, who simply know better than to believe that the earth was created in 6 days and is only 6,000 years old. The failure of many modern theologians to be able to discern the difference between allegory and recitations of fact has distorted understanding of the Book of Genesis, which still holds a treasure trove of real clues about the origins of human history, the times of Adam, and the times of his immediate descendents.
Likewise when literal fact is overlooked in the study of scripture, huge clues to our collective past are missed. The Book of Genesis alludes to ancient geographic locales of ancient human settlements that corroborate to modern locations:
“In the Book of Genesis, it is indicated that Eden is west of Assyria. Sure enough, this is where Gobekli is sited.
Likewise, biblical Eden is by four rivers, including the Tigris and Euphrates. And Gobekli lies between both of these.
In ancient Assyrian texts, there is mention of a ‘Beth Eden’ – a house of Eden. This minor kingdom was 50 miles from Gobekli Tepe.
Another book in the Old Testament talks of ‘the children of Eden which were in Thelasar’, a town in northern Syria, near Gobekli.
The very word ‘Eden’ comes from the Sumerian for ‘plain’; Gobekli lies on the plains of Harran.
Thus, when you put it all together, the evidence is persuasive. Gobekli Tepe is, indeed, a ‘temple in Eden’, built by our leisured and fortunate ancestors – people who had time to cultivate art, architecture and complex ritual, before the traumas of agriculture ruined their lifestyle, and devastated their paradise.”
Many now believe that the Gobleki Tepe temple site is the original Eden. It’s not, but it may well be a worship site for the descendants of Adam from the Second Garden. The Urantia Book contains many provocative passages wherein the time period in human history between 9,000 B.C. and 15,000 B.C. are discussed. One of those psaages sounds quite similar to the Gobleki Tepe locale:
(900.3) 81:1.1 For about thirty-five thousand years after the days of Adam, the cradle of civilization was in southwestern Asia, extending from the Nile valley eastward and slightly to the north across northern Arabia, through Mesopotamia, and on into Turkestan. And climate was the decisive factor in the establishment of civilization in that area.
(900.4) 81:1.2 It was the great climatic and geologic changes in northern Africa and western Asia that terminated the early migrations of the Adamites, barring them from Europe by the expanded Mediterranean and diverting the stream of migration north and east into Turkestan. By the time of the completion of these land elevations and associated climatic changes, about 15,000 B.C., civilization had settled down to a world-wide stalemate except for the cultural ferments and biologic reserves of the Andites still confined by mountains to the east in Asia and by the expanding forests in Europe to the west.
(900.5) 81:1.3 Climatic evolution is now about to accomplish what all other efforts had failed to do, that is, to compel Eurasian man to abandon hunting for the more advanced callings of herding and farming. Evolution may be slow, but it is terribly effective.
(900.6) 81:1.4 Since slaves were so generally employed by the earlier agriculturists, the farmer was formerly looked down on by both the hunter and the herder. For ages it was considered menial to till the soil; wherefore the idea that soil toil is a curse, whereas it is the greatest of all blessings. Even in the days of Cain and Abel the sacrifices of the pastoral life were held in greater esteem than the offerings of agriculture.
(900.7) 81:1.5 Man ordinarily evolved into a farmer from a hunter by transition through the era of the herder, and this was also true among the Andites, but more often the evolutionary coercion of climatic necessity would cause whole tribes to pass directly from hunters to successful farmers. But this phenomenon of passing immediately from hunting to agriculture only occurred in those regions where there was a high degree of race mixture with the violet stock.
(901.1) 81:1.6 The evolutionary peoples (notably the Chinese) early learned to plant seeds and to cultivate crops through observation of the sprouting of seeds accidentally moistened or which had been put in graves as food for the departed. But throughout southwest Asia, along the fertile river bottoms and adjacent plains, the Andites were carrying out the improved agricultural techniques inherited from their ancestors, who had made farming and gardening the chief pursuits within the boundaries of the second garden.
(901.2) 81:1.7 For thousands of years the descendants of Adam had grown wheat and barley, as improved in the Garden, throughout the highlands of the upper border of Mesopotamia. The descendants of Adam and Adamson here met, traded, and socially mingled.
(901.3) 81:1.8 It was these enforced changes in living conditions which caused such a large proportion of the human race to become omnivorous in dietetic practice. And the combination of the wheat, rice, and vegetable diet with the flesh of the herds marked a great forward step in the health and vigor of these ancient peoples.
I have believed all my life that the Urantia Book was given to humankind in an attempt to correct the many tragic errors of the past regarding human record-keeping and the actual age of human civilization. When the Royal Library of Alexandria was burned to the ground in the first century A.D. all records of the most ancient human settlements in the world, which originated in ancient Mesopotamia, going back nearly 500,000 years, disappeared for all time. This unprecedented tragedy in human record-keeping altered humanity’s understanding of their own deep history, and changed humanity’s future forever.
A sentient species can have no possible idea of where they are going if they forget or erase the records of where they have already been. But that is exactly what has happened in human history repeatedly in the past 500,000 years as periodic re-occurring cataclysms erased entire civilizations, inducing trauma and species-wide amnesia into the stream of human history, and altering our understanding of our own far distant past. The Urantia Book was given to humankind for many reasons, and just one of them involves restoring the most ancient records of the history of human settlements, racial origins and migrations, civilizations and the history and evolution of human religion. It was intended that the Urantia Papers would be studied and cross-referenced with traditional Christian theology in order to enlighten and uplift human understanding of both the ancient origins of humankind, and the evolution of human religion itself.
It was never intended that The Urantia Book would become an object of ridicule, fear, loathing and hatred by most modern Christian ministers, but, adding train wreck to tragedy, that is exactly what has happened. This must change or humanity will never make the transition from ignorance to intelligent understanding in time to stay abreast of the great swing of the Cosmos into the next era of Light and Life upon this world.
Discoveries continue to be made which corroborate facts presented in the Urantia papers. I believe that the hand of God is in many of these discoveries. Christian ministers make a fatal mistake when they demonize the historical material presented in the Urantia Papers and refuse to reconcile their study of the Christian Holy Bible with the Urantia Book. I have been cross-referencing my own KJV Holy Bible with the Urantia Book for more than 30 years now, It has been illuminating and exciting for me, to say the least.
I will continue to post scientific, astronomical, archeological, and anthropological material which both confirms and illuminates our understanding of traditional biblical scripture, and corroborates new facts about human history which are presented in the Urantia Book papers.
