Saudi Nuclear Plant

Hey!....this sounds like a good long as the world can't seem to stop Iran from going nuclear...let's just let EVERYONE go nuclear! That way every whack-nut out there will eventually be capable of destroying the world with a nuclear bomb!

Over the last two years, Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Bahrain, Oman, Kuwait, the UAE, Yemen, Morocco, Libya, Jordan and Egypt have all indicated an interest in developing nuclear programs, with Israeli officials saying, off the record, that if these countries did not want the programs now for their military capabilities, they wanted the technology in place to keep "other options open" if Iran were to develop a bomb.

How does that saying go?...All it takes for evil to triumph is for good men to stand around and do nothing.

Muslims Unite!

We have had our antennae up for some time on the Shiite-Islam belief of a coming savior called the 12th Imam, or the Mahdi. It is interesting to note how many similarities exist between the Islamic prophecy and what our own bible tells us about the Anti-Christ.

Author Joel Richardson has an updated version of his original book I read a few years ago. The updated title is called, ANTI-CHRIST: ISLAM'S AWAITED MESSIAH. I would highly recommend this book if you want to know more about these fascinating similarities.

So we keep looking for the news of the coming Mahdi in Arabic reports...and this week some more interesting stuff has appeared.

Ayatollah Ali Khamenei's spokesman, Ali Saeedi, said countries like Turkey, Iraq, Lebanon, Pakistan and Afghanistan should gather together all their forces in order to make drastic changes to prepare for the coming of al-Mahdi al-Montazar, Arabic for "the awaited guided one."

Read short article here;

Remember that Ali Khamenei is the supreme Iranian leader...and stands above our friend Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.

Also remember that chaos is the global condition that Shiites believe will usher in the Mahdi....and they are still cooking a nuclear weapon....which could create a lot of global chaos.

Piper Follow Up

A good friend sent this comment from a pastor who wrote to John Piper asking him to repent of his observations regarding the ELCA and the tornado. I will post them below. See if you can figure out how many ways this poor pastor has misunderstood the Creator of the universe...who we are told is a "consuming fire".

I rarely take to writing to directly confront one of my "colleagues" in ministry, however, when something is written and presented that is completely off-the-charts ridiculous, I simply have to respond. I will do my best to do so in love and respect, which, it seems, my dear brother, Rev. Piper, has decided is no longer necessary.

First let me get this out of the way up front for some of you who will take offense to my taking offense at John's article. I honestly have no problem with Rev. Piper expressing his opinions concerning "homosexuality." It is a free country, and I believe in an open table of discourse. So, my response will confront John where I disagree with him, and I believe I am free to offer my opinions too.

However, what I really mean to address is his perpetuation of the ridiculous notion that God is, or would, or has ever, actually enacted vengeance upon humankind via weather, or disease, or war, or famine, etc.

Now, let me beat some of you to it... I am fully aware that the Bible has several examples of what ancients perceived as being God's retribution on humankind. Sodom, Noah, Babel, Egypt, and more. I really don't care to get into specific debate as to whether these were actual historic events, or, if they were, whether God actually caused them, or whether they were enacted for the purposes for which the ancients supposed they were. Such debate is fun, and can be informative, but, since said events cannot be proven to have actually occurred, and since, even if we could prove so, there is no way to prove that the events were caused by God, the debate ends at pure fun and speculation, or at least it does if parties in the debate are able to debate in love and respect.

What I would like to encourage, however, is that we keep in mind that all ancient cultures viewed catastrophic events in this way. Since they had no scientific knowledge of how the universe worked, they were doing their best to make sense of tragic events. Since such events were obviously from some source far greater and more powerful than themselves ancients could only make sense of them in other-worldly terms, as being from "the gods," or in the case of early Judaism, Islam and Christianity, from God. To the Greeks, Zeus, the mightiest of the gods, was the thrower of lightning, and did so to enact retribution upon humans or upon other gods with whom he was dissatisfied. Oddly, many Christians still today, perhaps somewhat "tongue-in-cheek," but still with some fear, speak of God potentially striking someone with lightning for some perceived offense. This ancient fear is still deeply embedded within our psychological selves, even though we know, scientifically, this is not probable, or even likely.

So, when I read in Rev. Piper's blog the assertion that God in effect sent a tornado to Minneapolis, MN, and caused it to settle at or near the meeting place of the National Convention of the Evangelical Lutheran Church of America, in order to warn them of God's impending dissatisfaction with many in that denomination who were considering a "Proposed Social Statement on Human Sexuality,” I was horrified, to say the least! Piper's indication is that God's wrath was only a tornado away from wiping out all participants who might dare to vote that actively gay clergy should be ordained and allowed to serve freely in the ELCA, and that God actually caused a tornado to appear to deliver that precise warning!

Rev. Piper, I truly and honestly love you as a dear brother in Jesus Christ, and I have personally been blessed many times in the past by your writing and speaking. However, I fear that in this, quite literally silly, proclamation, you have overstepped and done great damage to your otherwise fruitful ministry in Christ. I have to counter-proclaim: this message of yours did not come from the Lord. You are out of line, and out of step, and I pray you, repent.

It is one thing to offer your best understanding of scripture perceived to deal with homosexuality, even if it differs from mine. But, to make such a bold and unwise and hateful and unjust proclamation is quite another thing altogether!

I will not address items #2 and #3 on your list, other than to simply say, I respectfully disagree. These are as of yet unsettled debates that will continue for yet some time and need not be rehashed here.

In item #1, you fail to provide reference to the particular version you quote: "nor men who practice homosexuality..." I would simply follow with this, given your demonstration of extreme fundamentalism and preference for a literal interpretation: if you hold to a literal interpretation, if this english translation is even accurate to begin with, then you must say that this applies to men only. So, apparently, women who practice homosexuality are not excluded from the Kingdom of God. Lesbians everywhere thank you for this inclusion.

In item #4, to suggest that this question asked under the breath by Jesus' disciples is somehow proof that every wind, of any type, including tornados, are caused, summoned, and directed by Jesus is quite simply ludicrous! I honestly find it downright weird that you said something like this.

In item #5, are you suggesting that Jesus' answer here indicates that He, or our Triune God, caused the tower of Siloam to fall and kill the 18 persons for some perceived offense? And that further, because Jesus did so, He also does so with all such calamities which befall humankind? Surely not, sir! The scripture in no way makes any such claim, nor does Jesus in His response. The only point I hear Jesus making is that we can never know when such calamities may occur and therefore we should all be prepared for the end of our earthly lives. I hear, implied in Jesus' response, the notion of God's allowance of natural, or otherwise, calamitous events to occur usually without God's intervention either in causation or in prevention.

Finally, in item #6, my dear brother, I can only respond with, WOW! REALLY? It is this statement/conclusion of yours that I must insist that you repent of! We can agree to disagree given our different interpretations of scripture. I may be wrong on these. I don't believe I am, but I could be. But, you could be wrong. However, as to whether God sent this tornado as a warning, let's be clear... you are absolutely wrong in this respect. There is simply no scriptural or scientific evidence that you can call upon that will support such a ridiculous suggestion! This is quite simply Falwellian fear-mongering at it's most destructive. Are you the new Jerry Falwell, my dear brother? Please say it isn't so.

You fail to mention in your blog that this same tornado also touched down in a neighborhood to the south in Minneapolis, causing great damage to homes. Did God also cause this same tornado to do this damage? If so, what do you think was the sin of the people who lived in those homes? Or, what was God trying to warn them about? Now, I'll give you this: if, in the coming days, we find that the persons who lived in those homes damaged to the south of the convention center were actually the persons who were voting pro-gay in the convention of the ELCA, I'll stand corrected and happily admit my error.

ELCA, Gays and Tornadoes

Remember when New Orleans was swamped by hurricane Katrina and someone made the comment that God maybe had something to do with it...because rampant sin brought judgement? I don't remember if it was Anne Grahm Lot or who it was, but she was quickly tarred and feathered by the media.

I do remember contemplating her statement and wondering if tremendous amounts of sin gathered in a certain area can literally push out God's Holy Spirit which is at work all around us restraining evil, chaos and mayhem.

With that as a background let's look at a recent happening and see if anyone believes it to be more than a coincidence.

Yesterday, the ELCA (Evangelical Lutheran Church of America) voted by the narrowest of margins (one vote) to amend their social statement regarding homosexuality.

One vote. That was the margin Wednesday by which the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America churchwide assembly approved a social statement that, among other things, acknowledges the validity of same-sex relationships that are "chaste, monogamous and lifelong."

Close as it was, the vote bodes well for a proposal to repeal a ban on gay and lesbian ministers from leading churches unless they promise to be celibate. That motion, which is to come up for a vote Friday afternoon, requires only a simple majority to pass.
Earlier in the afternoon, a storm battered the Minneapolis Convention Center where the ELCA was meeting. That storm turned out to be nothing compared with the whirlwind going on inside.

Read article here;

The vote was being held during the ELCA convention which was happening next door to Central Lutheran in downtown Minneapolis. That very day a tornado came and damaged Central Lutheran...whose building and congregation would be symbolic of the ELCA.

Jack Freitag said he was standing in the lobby of the Central Lutheran Church in Minneapolis when he saw "a wall cloud from the south coming across the parking lot." Then a "very loud roar" came through as he saw signs being blown around in the wind.

The wind tore off part of the church's 90-year-old metal steeple around 2 p.m. while about 120 people were inside, said church spokesman Joe Bjordal.

Read about storm here;

So what do you all think? Could God be sending a message that what little protection was left for the ELCA has now vanished like a whirlwind?

Foul Accusations by Swedish Paper

It seems that a Swedish newspaper is calling for an investigation into reports that Jewish soldiers were harvesting organs from dead Palestinians during Operation Cast Lead last January.

When contacted by CNN, Sweden's Foreign Office had no comment on the report, which was published Tuesday night, only saying that they "have free media" in Sweden.

And more;

He said Ghanem's (a Palestinian) body was taken away and returned several days later by the Israeli military with a cut in his midsection that had been stitched up. Ghanem's family said they believed that his organs had been removed.

After that incident, at least 20 Palestinian families told Bostrom that they suspected the Israeli military had taken the organs of their sons after they had been killed by Israeli forces, and their bodies taken away -- presumably for routine autopsies.

Read full article here;

Let's reflect on a few things; there were multiple arrests in New Jersey last week that did involve organ trafficking and did have Jewish Rabbis I am not going to comment on the accusations at all.

However, I do think it's interesting that there appears to be a double standard going on in Sweden.....who has no problem defending the free press on this Israeli accusation but would not publish cartoons about Muhammad because it may have lead to Muslim rioting...and could have hurt some people's feelings.

And finally, whether this turns out to be true or will be a building block on the anti-semitism that is building towards a boiling point.

What do the Jews Believe?

We all know that the Jews did not accept Jesus Christ as messiah and the bible is clear that they are going to bear the punishment for their error. The ultimate punishment will be the Tribulation when the Anti-Christ will sit on the throne of the Tribulation Temple in Jerusalem and demand to be worshiped. Jesus tells the Jews on earth to run and hide when they see this happen, because Satan will have indwelt the Anti-Christ and is going to come hunting for the Jews to destroy them all.

So what do the Jews believe is coming? Are they looking for a savior or messiah? Do they believe they are in the season for that messiah to come?

However, traditional Judaism maintains that the messianic idea has always been a part of Judaism. The moshiach is not mentioned explicitly in the Torah, because the Torah was written in terms that all people could understand, and the abstract concept of a distant, spiritual, future reward was beyond the comprehension of some people. However, the Torah contains several references to "the End of Days" (acharit ha-yamim), which is the time of the moshiach; thus, the concept of moshiach was known in the most ancient times.

From this Judaism 101 website, you can see that moshiach is the name for the future messiah. Also it is interesting to note that Judaism believes that the END OF DAYS is the season of time that the messiah will come.

Furthermore, the Jews also are looking forward to the Millennium...when all things will be made new. The hebrew word for this age is Olam Ha-Ba. I have to admit that when I first saw the word I thought it looked like "Obama"...just mixed up a bit.

Olam Ha-Ba: The Messianic Age
The world after the messiah comes is often referred to in Jewish literature as Olam Ha-Ba (oh-LAHM hah-BAH), the World to Come. This term can cause some confusion, because it is also used to refer to a spiritual
afterlife. In English, we commonly use the term "messianic age" to refer specifically to the time of the messiah.

Olam Ha-Ba will be characterized by the peaceful co-existence of all people (Isaiah 2:4). Hatred, intolerance and war will cease to exist. Some authorities suggest that the laws of nature will change, so that predatory beasts will no longer seek prey and agriculture will bring forth supernatural abundance (Isaiah 11:6-11:9). Others, however, say that these statements are merely an allegory for peace and prosperity.

All of the
Jewish people will return from their exile among the nations to their home in Israel (Isaiah 11:11-12; Jeremiah 23:8; 30:3; Hosea 3:4-5). The law of the Jubilee will be reinstated.

In the Olam Ha-Ba, the whole world will recognize the Jewish
G-d as the only true G-d, and the Jewish religion as the only true religion (Isaiah 2:3; 11:10; Micah 4:2-3; Zechariah 14:9). There will be no murder, robbery, competition or jealousy. There will be no sin (Zephaniah 3:13). Sacrifices will continue to be brought in the Temple, but these will be limited to thanksgiving offerings, because there will be no further need for expiatory offerings.

Wow!! You can really see how their understanding of what is to come ties directly into what we bible-believing Christians know is coming.

Anyway, check out this Judaism 101 site and learn something about what the Jews believe. We are told to bless them and I would say that understanding their beliefs would be a first step in knowing them and blessing them.

Rapture- 2009

After reading the website, Rapture that I will post below, I felt that I needed to send this Brother an in fact I did. While I agree with a lot of what this gentleman says about the rapture of the church....he goes further and says that he is mighty confident that it is going to happen in 2009...probably the spring of 2009. Oooops!

All of us who are anticipating the Lord's return need to be careful to NOT disqualify ourselves....and setting a date is a really good way to do that. I mentioned to him that it is a better option to simply understand that we are in "the season" of our Lord's return...and leave it at that.

With that being said, it's interesting to note that this Reverend is tracking with the whole 2012 theme that seems to be sweeping the earth.

Q - Can you give me some good reasons why the Rapture will happen in 2009?

A - Yes here's why the Rapture will happen in 2009. This is only a few reasons there are many more I cannot explain here in this short article.

1 - There are hundreds of Ancient Prophecies that all point to the end of 2012 being the end of the world, the Bible teaches us that the Rapture will happen three and one half years before the start of the great tribulations (This is the second half of the 7 year tribulation) so all these Ancient Prophecies confirm the Biblical view of the great tribulation and that means the Rapture will happen in 2009. See my
2012 page for a detailed list.

So....if there are hundreds of "Ancient Prophecies" that all point to 2012 as the world ending....who gave us those prophecies? Were they in God's word...or were they coming from sources that would have "the father of all lies" at their core?

Check out his website here to find out why he thinks the rapture of the church will happen in 2009;

Let's remember the words of our Lord that tell us that no man knows the day or the hour of our Lords return. Let's further remember that Jesus says he will come like a thief so that he can surprise the strong-man....who would be Satan, the current prince of this earth. And finally, let's remember that Paul tells us we believers WILL NOT be surprised at the Rapture...meaning that we will know we are in the season. For instance...if I heard the trumpet blow 10 minutes from now....I would not be surprised as we have been watching all the signs and are expecting him. But we certainly don't know if it's going to be the spring of fall of any specific year.

What do you think?

Anti-Semite Obama?

This article may not surprise us...but it better get us waking up at a lot faster pace! It's written by a black pastor who is blowing the trumpet about President Obama and his back-turning towards Israel and Jews.

BY E.W. Jackson Sr.

E. W. Jackson is Bishop of Exodus Faith Ministries, an author and retired attorney.

Like Obama, I am a graduate of Harvard Law School. I too have Muslims in my family. I am black, and I was once a leftist Democrat. Since our backgrounds are somewhat similar, I perceive something in Obama's policy toward Israel which people without that background may not see. All my life I have witnessed a strain of anti-Semitism in the black community. It has been fuelled by the rise of the Nation of Islam and Louis Farrakhan, but it predates that organization.

We heard it in Jesse Jackson's "HYMIE town" remark years ago during his presidential campaign. We heard it most recently in Jeremiah Wright's remark about "them Jews" not allowing Obama to speak with him. I hear it from my own Muslim family members who see the problem in the Middle East as a "Jew" problem.

Growing up in a small, predominantly black urban community in Pennsylvania, I heard the comments about Jewish shop owners. They were "greedy cheaters" who could not be trusted, according to my family and others in the neighborhood. I was too young to understand what it means to be Jewish, or know that I was hearing anti-Semitism. These people seemed nice enough to me, but others said they were "evil". Sadly, this bigotry has yet to be eradicated from the black community.

In Chicago, the anti-Jewish sentiment among black people is even more pronounced because of the direct influence of Farrakhan and the Nation of Islam. Most African Americans are not followers of "The Nation", but many have a quiet respect for its leader because, they say, "he speaks the truth" and "stands up for the black man". What they mean of course is that he viciously attacks the perceived "enemies" of the black community - white people and Jews. Even some self-described Christians buy into his demagoguery.

The question is whether Obama, given his Muslim roots and experience in Farrakhan's Chicago, shares this antipathy for Israel and Jewish people. Is there any evidence that he does? First, the President was taught for twenty years by a virulent anti-Semite, the Reverend Jeremiah Wright. In the black community it is called "sitting under". You don't merely attend a church, you "sit under" a Pastor to be taught and mentored by him. Obama "sat under" Wright for a very long time. He was comfortable enough with Farrakhan - Wright's friend - to attend and help organize his "Million Man March". I was on C-Span the morning of the march arguing that we must never legitimize a racist and anti-Semite, no matter what "good" he claims to be doing. Yet a future President was in the crowd giving Farrakhan his enthusiastic support.

The classic left wing view is that Israel is the oppressive occupier, and the Palestinians are Israel's victims. Obama is clearly sympathetic to this view. In speaking to the "Muslim World," he did not address the widespread Islamic hatred of Jews. Instead he attacked Israel over the growth of West Bank settlements. Surely he knows that settlements are not the crux of the problem. The absolute refusal of the Palestinians to accept Israel's right to exist as a Jewish state is the insurmountable obstacle. That's where the pressure needs to be placed, but this President sees it differently. He also made the preposterous comparison of the Holocaust to Palestinian "dislocation".

Obama clearly has Muslim sensibilities. He sees the world and Israel from a Muslim perspective. His construct of "The Muslim World" is unique in modern diplomacy. It is said that only The Muslim Brotherhood and other radical elements of the religion use that concept. It is a call to unify Muslims around the world. It is rather odd to hear an American President use it. In doing so he reveals more about his thinking than he intends. The dramatic policy reversal of joining the unrelentingly anti-Semitic, anti-Israel and pro-Islamic UN Human Rights Council is in keeping with the President's truest - albeit undeclared - sensibilities

Those who are paying attention and thinking about these issues do not find it unreasonable to consider that President Obama is influenced by a strain of anti-Semitism picked up from the black community, his leftist friends and colleagues, his Muslim associations and his long period of mentorship under Jeremiah Wright. If this conclusion is accurate, Israel has some dark days ahead. For the first time in her history, she may find the President of the United States siding with her enemies. Those who believe, as I do, that Israel must be protected had better be ready for the fight. We are.

Are all of us complacent Christians ready for a war?? Or would more hot coffee and pastries be all we are willing to fight for?

Hidden Imam

Let's review again; many Shiite Muslims believe the 12th Imam is soon coming back to planet earth. Once here, he will kill all the Jews, kill all the Christians and then usher in the 13th Caliphate...which means the entire world will be under Muslim law...or their head will be chopped off. And key to this understanding is that a condition of absolute, global -chaos needs to be present on planet earth to fulfill this prophecy and hasten his coming.

Wow!! First point to mention is that their prophecy sounds an awful lot like what our bible tells us about the Anti-Christ!!

Wow!! Second point to understand is that Iranian President Ahmadinejad is a Shiite Muslim who not only firmly believes this prophecy...but goes further... and openly prays at UN meetings for his "soon return"....and goes further still to report that he is having bodily meetings with this being...AND has ordered certain streets widened in Iran so that the 12th Imam and his army can more easily enter the city...and are currently digging thousands of graves in Iran to accommodate all the non-Muslims the 12th Imam will kill on his way into the city.

Wow!! And this guy wants a nuclear bomb in the worst way!! Does that concern anybody in the Obama administration....or should we ignore that issue and focus more health care reform? Newsflash Mr. Obama;....if Iran drops a nuke on care reform will be THE LAST THING that the U.S. citizens will be concerned about.

With that as a backdrop, check out this headline and summary;

Iranian Chief of Staff Firouzabadi Writes Letter to Hidden Imam

On July 12, 2009, the Iranian news agency ISNA published a letter written by Iranian chief of staff Hassan Firouzabadi to the Hidden Imam (the Shi'ite messiah, also called the Mahdi). In his letter, Firouzabadi depicts the post-election protests as a conspiracy against the Iranian regime by the West and the reformists in Iran. He also rejects accusations of Basij brutality, saying that the group did not act against the Iranian people in suppressing the protests, but rather tried to protect them. He concludes by urging the Hidden Imam to come speedily and launch a worldwide Islamic revolution.

Read the whole article here;

Mr. Obama....if you are reading this blog... I ask that you please understand these facts BEFORE you go sit and have tea with Mr. Ahmadinejad. I know you have great charisma and presence that works well on Americans, but you are not promised to have the same results on this religious zealot (and his cabinet) who is looking forward to bringing chaos to planet earth. Also, please tell President Clinton when you see him tomorrow that sitting for a photo op with Kim Jong Il, like he did a few weeks ago, will only embolden other crazy-despots to kidnap U.S. citizens. I know the journalist's and their families were incredibly happy....but at what expense to the entire planet of freedom loving, peaceful citizens?


Millions of Americans paid to see it at the it's at the video store for rent and millions more will see the movie Knowing. It stars Nicholas Cage and I rented it for $1 at my local Redbox last night.

The movie's plot (stop reading right here if you don't like to know how movies start and end) involves a strange little girl who wrote down a series of numbers 50 years ago and they had been sealed tight in a time capsule. Upon re-opening the capsule 50 years later, we come to find that the series of numbers were actually future dates and map coordinates for disasters yet to happen. And as our star finds out....every single one of them came true to the EXACT number. Even worse, he figures out that they only have a few days left until the entire world is vaporized...exactly as this little girls has predicted.

Why am I telling you all this...and what could this possibly have to do with prophecy and current events?

The answer to that question is that the movie is further proof that the world is being prepared for some kind of grand deception. And just like so many movies made in the past 5 years, this one also ends with "aliens" actually removing the children from planet earth...just before EVERYONE LEFT BEHIND is destroyed by a massive fire delivered by our own sun.

Let's assume the actual rapture of the church had happened yesterday and millions of children were missing today. Could this movie plot actually lend credibility to the belief that "aliens" actually took the children to a much safer place? Remember, satan is going to have to come up with some sort of answer for this mass disappearance of millions of adults and children. And if he uses this explanation on an audience that has recently watched the movie KNOWING...and has NO PERSONAL UNDERSTANDING OF THE TRUTH OF GOD'S WORD....their minds may be prepared to accept such a lie.

Here's another strange piece of plot from the movie; it turns out that the strange little girl who wrote down the numbers actually died 40 years later as a strange middle aged lady. Upon examining her belongings we can see that one of her favorite pictures was an artists rendition of Ezekiel chapter 1. If you haven't read Ezekiel chapter 1 for some time, I would strongly encourage you to do so now. Let's just say it is a VERY supernatural chapter. Also, the movie looks at the bed stand and does a close up on the HOLY the audience can assume that our strange little lady was a regular bible reader with some in-depth understanding of the OT prophesies of Ezekiel.

So again we can see themes of Christianity, bible belief and OT prophecy all thrown together in tiny little bits that are sewn into the story line of this movie. Again, by doing this, it helps to confuse people who KNOW NOTHING about Ezekiel, the bible or Jesus Christ....which sadly includes most people who are sitting in the church pews across this country.

All I can say, again, is that DECEPTION IS COMING!

Monday, August 17, 2009


The news over the weekend (Besides Tiger Woods golfing in Chaska) was that the Arab nations are lobbying the European Union to force Israel to disclose their nuclear ambitions and/or weapons and to have them open to international monitoring.

EUOBSERVER / BRUSSELS - The Arab League has requested that the European Union back its resolution calling on Israel to submit to international monitoring of its alleged nuclear capability at next month's general assembly of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA).

If you missed that news, you can read it here;

What might the Arabs be up to in regards to Israel? One thing for has nothing to do with peaceful reasons. They are up to something...and I would guess that they are continuing their campaign to turn the world (even further) against the Jewish state.

If Israel is forced to "fess up" that they in fact have dozens of nuclear bombs....then the world will be want to ask the question, "Then why can't Iran make a few? And why can't Saudi Arabia?" And pretty soon, all the Arab countries would be demanding to be removed from the Nuclear Non-Proliferation treaties THAT THEY ALL SIGNED! If that happens, there will be an Arab nuclear arms race and the world will continue to become even more dangerous.

Let's remember that the Jews are living in a very tough neighborhood and that Hitler wiped out 1/3 of the world's Jews just 60 years ago. They have very good reasons for wanting a nuclear deterrent...and I believe that Isaiah 17 will probably be fulfilled when Israel is forced to use some nukes on Damascus...because the Arab extremists seems to be yearning for some more blood to be spilled with their Jewish neighbors.

As we are reminded...the holocaust museum says, "Never Again" on it's front entrance. Ernst David Bergmann, chairman of the Israel Atomic Energy Commission (from 1954 to 1966), reflected this mindset best when he said, “There is no distinction between nuclear energy for peaceful purposes or warlike ones," and that “We [Jewish people] shall never again be led as lambs to the slaughter.”

We are pretty certain that when the Jews say "Never"....they are serious about it.
