Liars Are Running Things Now

Jesus clearly told us that Satan was the Father of all Lies. When you come across someone who lies well and lies can assume they may not be "born again" into the Holy Spirit.

Also remember that Satan is currently running the show on planet earth. Yes, God is omniscient and omni-powerful BUT He is allowing Satan to work things for a short time.

1 John 5:19 clearly tells us, "We know that we are children of God, and that the whole world is under the control of the evil one."

What? "Certainly not America!", some will say..."We are a Christian nation!"

It says that whole world....and that includes America.

So what happens when we Christians find out that our government, our banking system, our financial system, our capital system and basically everything we have believed to be upright and all now being run by full time liars?

The excerpts below are from an article titled "Market Crash 2011: It Will Happen by Christmas". Check out the liars and see if any of this rings true.

SAN LUIS OBISPO, Calif. (MarketWatch) — Politicians lie. Bankers lie. Yes, they’re liars. But they’re not bad, it’s in their genes, inherited. Their brains are wired that way, warn scientists. Like addicts, they can’t help themselves. They want to sell stuff, get rich.

We want to believe they’re telling us the truth. Silly, huh? Both trapped in this eternal “dance of death” controlled by programs hidden deep in our brains, telling us what to do, telling us to ignore facts to the contrary — till it’s too late, till a new crisis crushes all of us.

Biggest lie? Wharton’s perennial bull, Jeremy Siegel, of “Stocks for the Long Run” fame, recently told a TD Ameritrade Institutional Conference, “There’s nothing but upside to come …the next several years are going to be good for stocks.”

Yes, one of Wall Street’s favorite co-conspirators is hypnotizing thousands of our best money managers and advisers into believing the lie that this bull market will roar indefinitely. Worse, they’ll use that message to sell naive investors on buying whatever junk Wall Street is selling.

Translation: Get the heck out of Wall Street’s stock market casino soon, maybe as early as July 4th, and definitely get out by Christmas, because soon all the lies, lying and liars will stop working.

See it here;

The Bible tells us that things will come down and come apart like a flood. We know the storm clouds have then shall we live when it REALLY starts to rain? Will our foundations be set in stone to survive....or built in sand to be easily washed away?

Secret UFO Files Gradually Disclosed

ABC News is still talking about top secret UFO files released by the UK this week. Notice the language used about "gradual disclosure". Also notice how the "facts are too disturbing to the majority of the populace..." And finally notice how "we're absolutely on a fast track to full disclosure."

"The official agenda is, I've been told, on both sides of the Atlantic, is that gradual disclosure has to be the way," Timothy Good, a UFO expert and believer, told ABC News' "Good Morning America."

"I don't think the ministry has revealed everything by any means," said Good. "The facts are too disturbing for the majority of the populous. Some of them actually have bases and have had bases on planet Earth for maybe thousands of years."

Should U.S. Release Its Own 'X-Files'?

Michael Luckman, a UFO supporter and director of the New York Center for Extraterrestrial Research, said he thinks it's time for the U.S. government to follow in the footsteps of its friends across the pond.

"We're absolutely on a fast-track to full disclosure," he said. "The U.S. should take a leadership role. Unfortunately, we've held back. ...This cover-up has gone on for more than 60 years."

In the past few months, he said, not only have institutions and countries around the world pushed for UFO disclosure, but military officers here in the U.S. have asked the U.S. government to come clean.

See it here;

So what will we say to our friends and co workers who are talking about "aliens" and how they believe that the universe is far too big for us to be all alone? What will we say if (God forbid) the U.S. Government rolls out it's own UFO files and releases information that we have been communicating with "aliens" for over 50 years?

And finally, what will we say if an alien ship were to actually land and have "aliens" start telling us all sorts of things about Jesus that DON'T confirm what the scriptures say about Him? Would we be able to stand firm...even as they perform signs and miracles...and maybe even call down fire from heaven?

"And he performed great and miraculous signs, even causing fire to come down from heaven to earth in full view of men." Revelation 13:13

Ready to Die

The Christian lawmaker who was murdered a few days ago had made a video before his death. Of course it was supposed to be played in the event that he was murdered.

In the video he claims that he knows Jesus Christ and he understands the cross that Christ died on. He also claims that he is standing against sharia law and the Muslims who use it to persecute everyone else who is NOT a Muslim.

Any questions??

For the Christian mourners outside the church, Bhatti's death silenced their most powerful defender and makes them feel vulnerable. Christians often live on the edges of Pakistani society, taking some of its most menial jobs and living in the equivalent of ghettos. Christians have also been attacked, most recently in the town of Gojra in 2009 when nine Christians were burned to death.

"They are taking us as animals. They are taking us on the roads... they are killing our ministers. They are killing us in Gojra, they are killing us in Lahore, they are killing us everywhere," said an emotional Rahmoon Bhatti, who is a pastor in Islamabad and not related to Shahbaz Bhatti. "We are not secure against this law. We want this law to be done, we want this law to be taken out from our courts."

Food Prices Hit Record

Gasoline has gone up over $1 per gallon since September, prices of wheat, corn and beans have almost doubled in the past 6 months, and all of these goods are delivered to us by trucks which burn diesel fuel and is approaching $4 per gallon.

But remember what the government is telling you....."Inflation is not happening....the economy is recovering....everybody is going to soon have a job....the debt is not a problem....commence shopping and spending money that you don't have so that we can get back to normal."

And of course we know that all the unrest breaking out in poor Arab countries was NOT triggered by their love of the people of of the main triggers was high food costs.

Remember, if you live on $5 per day and for the last 20 years you have been spending half of that to feed are going to be pretty upset if you now have to spend $4 per day on rice and beans just to survive.

UN food agency says that global food prices reached new highs in February and warns that oil price spikes could provoke further increases.

Skyrocketing food prices have been among the triggers for protests in Egypt, Tunisia and elsewhere and raised fears of a repeat of the food price crises in 2007 and 2008. Global oil prices have spiked on concerns about the potential impact of supply disruptions from Libya. The food price index was up 2.2 percent last month, the highest in real and nominal terms since the agency started monitoring prices in 1990.

I recently flew on an airplane so had to go through security. I watched in amazement as they had all these white grandmas from Iowa and Minnesota taking their shoes off, emptying their pockets and even forcing them into body scan machines.
Why? Has a white grandma from Iowa EVER blown anything up in a terrorist attack.
That answer is "no".
And then we hear the reason that grandma still has to be searched...."We can't profile might lead to someone being offended!"
Above, I have posted a picture of two terrorists who were arrested in June at the airport in New Jersey.
Let's look closely....yep, they look of middle eastern descent....yep, they look like males between the ages of 17 and 35......yep, they have names that sound eerily similar to most convicted terrorists....yep, they are trying to fly to or from a known terrorist harboring country....
Conclusion; maybe we should pull these guys aside and give them a double take...because THEY SURE MATCH THE PROFILE OF THOUSANDS OF OTHER CONVICTED TERRORISTS!
But meanwhile, we spend billions of non-productive dollars searching every single human being that walks into the airport. This activity does NOTHING to make us any more safe and actually is another drain to our floundering economy...because the TSA does NOTHING to produce wealth. They only serve to drain resources from the productive segment.
Have we all lost our minds?

Currency In Peril

Yesterday we posted about the very real possibility that the U.S. dollar will lose it's reserve currency status.

Today we have some more discussion from a top business man/investor named Sam Zell....and his comments are a bit more ominous.

The US standard of living could drop 25 percent if the dollar loses its standing as the world's reserve currency, investor Sam Zell told CNBC.

"My single biggest financial concern is the loss of the dollar as the reserve currency. I can't imagine anything more disastrous to our country," the chairman of the Tribune Company as well as Equity Group Investments said in a live interview. "I'm hoping against hope that ain't gonna happen, but you're already seeing things in the markets that are suggesting that confidence in the dollar is waning."

"I think you could see a 25 percent reduction in the standard of living in this country if the US dollar was no longer the world's reserve currency," he said. "That's how valuable it is."

Misleading government data is fooling investors into believing there is no inflation, said Zell, who pointed out that 42 percent of the Consumer Price Index the government uses to gauge inflation is housing, where costs have been flatlining or falling. In the meantime, energy costs are up 9 percent and food is up 12 percent.

See it here;

Did you catch that comment, "....confidence in the dollar is waning"?

Did you catch the comment about, "Misleading government data..."?

Remember friends...our entire lifestyle here in America is based on the "full faith and confidence in the U.S. Government"....if that continues to wane or totally vanishes...we will see things happen in America that Hollywood could only imagine.

Hey sleepy's time to wake up! (said like my Mom used to say it as she woke me up for grade-school)

Who Will Buy Them?

The above illustration gives a visual as to the serious problem that is coming for the U.S. Ponzi scheme. Remember, we have $15 trillion of outstanding debt...most of which is standing in U.S. Treasury Bills and Bonds. How did we get there? How long can we continue to refinance this debt? the chart shows 50% was bought by foreigners, 40% bought by U.S. investors and 10% were mythically bought with IOU's from the Federal Reserve and/or by printing paper money.
But ever since the U.S. economy almost collapsed in 2008, the Federal Reserve has been "buying" 70% of the bonds the U.S. Treasury auctions off almost every week. Remember, the Federal Reserve doesn't really HAVE any money....they just print, maneuver and account their way into the purchase.
And as of June 30, 2011...that impossible buying spree that the Federal Reserve has been cooking...will be over, because Quantitative Easing Part II is scheduled to be over.
That leaves us with the million dollar question.....WHO WILL BUY ALL THESE U.S. TREASURIES WHEN THE FED QUITS BUYING 70% OF THEM?? AND AT WHAT PRICE??
The founder of PIMCO (major investment house) has this prophetic-toned, almost ominous statement at the end of his article;
Investors should view June 30th, 2011 not as political historians view November 11th, 1918 (Armistice Day – a day of reconciliation and healing) but more like June 6th, 1944 (D-Day – a day fraught with hope for victory, but fueled with immediate uncertainty and fear as to what would happen in the short term). Bond yields and stock prices are resting on an artificial foundation of QE II credit that may or may not lead to a successful private market handoff and stability in currency and financial markets.

UK Releases UFO Files

One reader who sent me this link asked, "Why now?" Yes... why is the UK, Mexico, France, China and others all releasing UFO files which clearly give hints that we have visitors from outside our realm? Don't we already have enough uncertainty roiling the planet?

(Reuters) - The government Thursday released 35 previously classified files documenting sightings of unidentified flying objects (UFOs) by the military and members of the public dating back to the 1950s.

The files contain around 8,500 pages which mainly cover the period from 1997 to 2005 and include photographs, drawings and descriptions of flying saucer sightings, as well as letters the Ministry of Defence sent eyewitnesses in response to their accounts.

Policemen, a soldier, a RAF officer and members of the public report sightings of objects including a "chewy mint shaped solid craft" and aerial objects resembling a "ring," a "jellyfish" and a "silver voile spin top."

See it here;

Of the millions of UFO sightings all over the world in the past 50 years, many have rational explanations. But thousands upon thousands have no earthly explanations and they are witnessed by VERY credible witnesses including military personnel who are very familiar with man-made aircraft.

As we have already stated in the past...the very fact that alien abduction experiences can be ended as they are happening by simply uttering the name of Jesus, and calling out for His a VERY solid clue that what we are dealing with here is Satanic deception.

And friends....this world is RIPE for serious deception....because this world has pretty much become ignorant of the Word of God.

Today some U.S. forces were killed in Germany by a gunman who got on their bus and shot them dead. Tragic.

A few hours later we read this headline from the AP;

APNewsBreak: Shooter allegedly a German Muslim


Dollars Reign Near an End

The U.S. dollar has had an EXTREMELY good run. We have pretty much called all the financial shots since we won WWII. But make no mistake about it...those days ARE coming to an end.

Remember what you Great Grandpa always said, "Him with the cash makes the rules."

What we don't know is whether the dollar's end will be calamitous, tumultuous, or just painful.

Today's Wall Street Journal opined on this very topic.

The greenback, in other words, is not just America's currency. It's the world's.

But as astonishing as that is, what may be even more astonishing is this: The dollar's reign is coming to an end.

I believe that over the next 10 years, we're going to see a profound shift toward a world in which several currencies compete for dominance.

The impact of such a shift will be equally profound, with implications for, among other things, the stability of exchange rates, the stability of financial markets, the ease with which the U.S. will be able to finance budget and current-account deficits, and whether the Fed can follow a policy of benign neglect toward the dollar.

Finally, there is the danger that the dollar's safe-haven status will be lost. Foreign investors—private and official alike—hold dollars not simply because they are liquid but because they are secure. The U.S. government has a history of honoring its obligations, and it has always had the fiscal capacity to do so.

But now, mainly as a result of the financial crisis, federal debt is approaching 75% of U.S. gross domestic product. Trillion-dollar deficits stretch as far as the eye can see. And as the burden of debt service grows heavier, questions will be asked about whether the U.S. intends to maintain the value of its debts or might resort to inflating them away. Foreign investors will be reluctant to put all their eggs in the dollar basket.

See it here;

Times are a changin'! We know with 100% certainty that a new currency is coming for planet earth. It will be one that the Antichrist will control.

So we should not be alarmed to see things move in that direction. Remember, ALL THESE THINGS MUST HAPPEN....BUT DON'T BE ALARMED.

Send the Arabs Some Money

With all the unrest going on in the Arab world, real human suffering is already happening.

Senator John Kerry (D) has an excellent idea of how the USA can respond.

WASHINGTON — A leading US senator called Wednesday for providing financial aid in support of democracy and economic transformation in Arab countries undergoing popular demands for change.

"Events this powerful demand a powerful response," said Senator John Kerry, chairman of the Senate Committee on Foreign Relations.

See it here;

Sounds good Mr. Kerry! You are right...America SHOULD be helping those Arabs get a sound foundation built so demcracy and economic transformation can happen!!

One question for you Senator....where will we get that money? Should we see if China can loan us a few more hundred that we can GIVE it to the Arabs? Shoot!...I guess we already have a $1.5 trillion deficit this year....let's just see if we can make it an even $2 trillion!!

And one final follow up question....what percentage of Arabs actually hate America and all it stands for? Are we sure this would be a ripe place for us to invest our borrowed money??

Question for my readers....isn't this the same Senator who has been engaged in figuring out the US balance sheet and how difficult it is to cut 1/1000th from the current budget...but he is coming up with even more ideas of what we should be spending on??


T Shirt Spotted in Israel

I read yesterday that some T-shirts were being worn by Jews in Israel that said, "Warning to Egyptian rioters; DO NOT DESTROY THE PYRAMIDS! WE WILL NOT COME AND REBUILD THEM FOR YOU!"

The funny point being a reference to what the Jews supposedly did while they were slaves in Egypt. I'm not sure this is historically accurate because the pyramids may have been there before Joseph even got there....but it is pretty funny all the same.

To any of my friends heading to Israel...if you see this T-shirt I would love a 2XL and will gladly pay you back.

Also if you want a quick read on the AMAZING, SUPERNATURAL facts surrounding the construction of the pyramids you can see it here;

Iran and China

Today we find more chatter about a "New world order", and this time that chatter is coming from Iran and China.

This little blurb should be of interest to prophecy watchers because it involves Iran, which is a named player (Persia) of Ezekiel 38 and also China which will be part of the "Kings of the East" mentioned in Revelation.

Ahmadinejad Stresses Iran, China's Role in Establishing New World Order

"Iran and China are two great countries which cradle human civilization and they can have a role in the establishment of a just and humane new world order," Ahmadinejad said here in Tehran on Tuesday.

"The order and the system dominating the world at present is worn-out and rotten and its unfair nature has been unveiled to all," he said, adding, "Under the present conditions, the world needs a humane and fair new order and Iran and China can have fruitful cooperation in the interest of humanity to define and establish this order."

We Have Now Entered the Stupid Zone

The Today show was on my TV this morning as I was having my coffee. They have a segment at about 7:15 where they run through the headline news from around the world. One of the headlines overnight was that a Christian lawmaker in Pakistan was murdered because he spoke out against his country's blasphemy laws.

They spent all of 5 seconds telling us about that story.

A few minutes later the show then spent 20 minutes doing an "EXCLUSIVE" live interview with Charlie Sheen and knew their audience would all be riveted by the personal drug, sex and divorce issues that this major TV star is having.

So on the one hand you have a hinge country like Pakistan systematically murdering any Christians who dare to speak out..a country that VERY EASILY could lead the world into WWIII...a country that already has nuclear missiles ready to launch and Muslim extremists getting closer every day to the launch codes....and the Today Show gives that story 5 seconds so they can quickly get on to the Charlie Sheen story that consumes 20 minutes.

We have now officially entered the Stupid Zone.

For those who want to read more about Pakistan falling into extremists hands and the overnight murder of one of the last Christian lawmakers willing to speak can read this tragic story here;

The slain minister belonged to the ruling party of President Asif Ali Zardar and was the only Christian member of the federal cabinet.

Bhatti had been threatened by Muslim extremists for speaking out against Pakistan’s controversial blasphemy law.

Police are reported to have seized Taliban-linked leaflets from the scene of the attack warning opponents of the Islamic law of blasphemy will meet Bhatti’s fate. In a VOA interview last month, the Pakistani minister had spoken about threats to his life, but vowed not to bow down before the extremist forces.

"This extremism is dangerous for the stability of the country," Bhatti said. "It is the time that the people of different faiths and the Pakistani nation stand united against the forces of intolerance, against the forces of violence. The blasphemy law is being misused to victimize the innocent people of Pakistan."

Nation of Islam and UFO's

Most of us have heard of the fiery, Nation of Islam preacher named Louis Farrakhan. But what most of us probably didn't know is that their beliefs center around UFO's.

Nation of Islam leader Minister Louis Farrakhan predicted on Sunday that America faces imminent uprisings that mirror those in the Middle East.

“What you are looking at in Tunisia, in Egypt … Libya, in Bahrain … what you see happening there … you’d better prepare because it will be coming to your door,” Farrakhan said in a booming voice, thousands of followers cheering in his wake.

Farrakhan also called on President Barack Obama to allow protesters to march, urging the president not to attack innocent people when they do.

The controversial minster spoke to a packed house at the Allstate Arena in Rosemont as part of the 81st annual celebration of Saviours' Day, which marks the birth of the faith’s founder, W. Fard Muhammad.

The keynote address, titled “God will send saviours,” capped a weekend of workshops focused on health, preparing for natural disasters and unidentified flying objects. The Nation of Islam believes in a UFO called “the wheel” or “the Mother Plane.”

Farrakhan has described a 1985 religious experience in which he ascended into a flying saucer and heard the voice of Elijah Muhammad predicting historical events that came to pass.

See it here;,0,1665375.story

Holy deception!! We've got it all here...predictions of unrest coming for the U.S. AND "saviours" coming on UFO's.

Can you start to understand now why SO MANY people will welcome "aliens" if they were to land on earth during a time when mankind seems to be at a tipping point? Can you understand how Christ warned his saints on earth to be aware of "false christs"?

This whole world is getting really strange friends. And with unrest breaking out all over the world and bankruptcy looming for virtually everyone....can you understand how desperate everyone will be for ANYONE who seems to offer us answers?

"The Spirit clearly says that in later times some will abandon the faith and follow deceiving spirits and things taught by demons." 1 Timothy 4:1

"Aliens" stepping off a UFO and teaching humans things would certainly fulfill this prophecy.

Ponzi King Calls "Ponzi"!

We have talked for quite a few years now about our belief that the Federal Government, the U.S. Treasury and the Federal Reserve are all engaged in running a gigantic Ponzi scheme.

We have also talked about our belief that Bernie Madoff's Ponzi scheme was simply foreshadowing of what is coming for the rest of us.

Today we find this headline;

Madoff to NY magazine: Government a Ponzi scheme

NEW YORK – Wall Street swindler Bernard Madoff said in a magazine interview published Sunday that new regulatory reform enacted after the recent national financial crisis is laughable and that the federal government is a Ponzi scheme.

"The whole new regulatory reform is a joke," Madoff said during a telephone interview with New York magazine in which he discussed his disdain for the financial industry and for its regulators.

Madoff did an earlier New York Times interview in which he accused banks and hedge funds of being "complicit" in his Ponzi scheme to fleece people out of billions of dollars. He said they failed to scrutinize the discrepancies between his regulatory filings and other information.

He said in the New York magazine interview the Securities and Exchange Commission "looks terrible in this thing," and he said the "whole government is a Ponzi scheme."

A Ponzi, or pyramid, scheme is a scam in which people are persuaded to invest through promises of unusually high returns, with early investors paid their returns out of money put in by later investors.

See it here;

So there you have it folks! The most successful Ponzi-schemer of them all is pointing his finger at the U.S. government and calling the entire system a "Ponzi scheme".

It sure seems like someone is trying to tell us to quit having faith in Mammon.

One thing for certain is true....when faith in Madoff fell, $50 billion dollars fell with him and it impacted thousands of individuals and businesses.

When the U.S. Government's Ponzi scheme falls, and all it's promises of unrealistic returns are revealed to be will affect the entire world in some way, shape or form.

Pray for this country that we will turn back to Jesus Christ, that we will humble ourselves and that He will heal our land.

It's obvious now that we are incapable of healing ourselves.

Arkansas Quakes

We have talked much over the past years about the New Madrid fault. So I don't need to say much more about this headline;

Largest earthquake in 35 years hits Arkansas

GREENBRIER, Ark. – The central Arkansas town of Greenbrier has been plagued for months by hundreds of small earthquakes, and after being woken up by the largest quake to hit the state in 35 years, residents said Monday they're unsettled by the increasing severity and lack of warning.

The U.S. Geological Survey recorded the quake at 11 p.m. Sunday, centered just northeast of Greenbrier, about 40 miles north of Little Rock. It was the largest of more than 800 quakes to strike the area since September in what is now being called the Guy-Greenbrier earthquake swarm.

The activity has garnered national attention and researchers are studying whether there's a possible connection to the region's natural gas drilling industry. The earthquake activity varies each week, though as many as nearly two dozen small quakes have occurred in a day.

"You don't know what to expect. It's unnerving," said Corinne Tarkington, an employee at a local flower and gift shop. "I woke up last night to the sound of my house shaking."

See it here;

Christchurch, New Zealand was utterly destroyed last week and the cost to repair it could send New Zealand heading towards financial disaster.

When the New Madrid breaks open with another 8.0 earthquake someday, FEMA tells us it WILL BE the most catastrophic events to EVER befall America? Could that be the straw that God allows to break our back? If our backs were broken....would we then bow to Jesus Christ?

The Year of Living Dangerously

Those of us who read the news and watch for these kinds of signs already knew this, but I still found some of the statements to be very telling and it ties into another story I will add at the bottom.

First, ANALYSIS-After the crisis, a worldwide rise in unrest?

This is an article posted today on the Reuters Africa website. They’re coming to the same conclusions we have; that as countries’ misery indices go up, so will frustration and the desire to riot and overthrow governments. A volatile combination of high inflation, less access to food and internet encouragement are lending their hand at rousing the masses, especially young people.

"Two crises are happening at the same time - which is unprecedented I think," said Joel Hirst, International affairs fellow at the US-based Council for Foreign Relations.

"An economic disaster and 'readjustment' of the developed world while the developing world fights for their freedoms. Add in there the oil/energy price, which could be seen as the link between the two, and it makes for a perfect storm."

The article speculates about the EU, China and the U.S.

“Certainly, the ability to guarantee food has long been core to regime survival and many analysts see governments ramping up purchases since Tunisia's revolt, again pushing prices higher.

"Food hoarding may continue as the general public and governments try to build inventories to protect against future shortages due to political upheaval or even a war," said Ana Armstrong, chair of fund manager Distinction Asset Management, warning that this could also cut growth and leave policymakers with difficult choices over what to do with interest rates.”

Whether or not uprisings will succeed;

“In Western democracies, few see unrest ousting whole systems -- but it could bring down governments, make structural economic reforms impossible and drive populist policies.
In others, as in Egypt can Tunisia, if attempts to placate with handouts and increased openness fail, it may come down to how harshly security forces are willing to crackdown.”

You can read it all here,

Speaking of populists, in an interesting if not foretelling speech, Farrakhan: Mideast uprisings will come to US

Louis Farrakhan is telling Americans to expect the rioting to come to the U.S. He is a friend of Moammar Gadhafi, and warns that we will soon find the same uprising on our doorstep.

“The keynote address, titled “God will send saviours,” capped a weekend of workshops focused on health, preparing for natural disasters and unidentified flying objects. The Nation of Islam believes in a UFO called “the wheel” or “the Mother Plane.’”

Read about it here-,0,1665375.story

While things continue to spiral toward its inevitable end, believers need to stay focused on our true Savior and lead other people to His saving grace. Jesus is the only One who can truly help us stay steadfast.

Strategic Moves

Three articles and an extra in one today regarding Israel and growing tension in the Middle East.

The first, “Israel Strikes Gaza After Rocket Attack on Israeli City.”

“A rocket fired from Gaza on Wednesday struck the southern Israeli city of Beersheba for the first time in two years, damaging one house but causing no physical injury, the Israeli police said. Israel carried out an airstrike soon after that in northern Gaza against what the military said was a rocket-firing squad.”
“On Thursday Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu warned Hamas, “I do not suggest that anyone test the State of Israel’s resolve.”

Read about that here,

I imagine Hamas is going to take advantage of the chaos and turmoil in the region to excite Israel right about now.

The second, “Iran aiming to exploit anarchy in post-Mubarak Sinai.”

“Iran wants to take advantage of the current anarchy in Egypt and establish a stronger foothold in Gaza,” a senior defense official said. “They are building new capabilities, upgrading smuggling mechanisms and studying the new military presence there to see how it will affect them.”

It seems that Israel should be concerned. Iran is taking complete advantage of the abandoned checkpoints and crossing areas in Egypt to haul in arms to Gaza. Israelis are also concerned that the Sinai will turn into a launch pad for attacks into Israel.

Read about that here,

And, the third, with some prophetic rings to it, “Syria and Iran agree to cooperate on naval training.”

Let’s make sure we throw Russia in the mix,
“The announcement of the cooperation agreement came the same day that Russian Defense Minister Anatoly Serdyukov said that Russia would fulfill its contractual obligation and complete the transfer of cruise missiles to Syria, according to an AFP report. The report said that news agencies in Moscow said the Kremlin did not intend to withdraw from the deal signed between the two countries in 2007, despite the objections of Israel and the United States.”

Read about that here,

"The two parties will cooperate with each other in training issues and the exchange of personnel," IRNA quoted the agreement, signed by the commanders of both navies, as saying.”

The article also quotes the Iranian naval commander as saying the pact is to announce peace and unity among Islamic countries and there is no war to be discussed. You don’t say…

Here’s a P.S. for good measure, 'Iran, Egypt, Syria can finish US'

“Tehran's ambassador to Damascus says if Egypt and other Muslim countries join forces with Iran and Syria, US dominance and power will diminish.”

Read the small but powerfully worded article here,
