Panetta Scolds Israel

The Islamic world in the Middle East is currently partaking in murder, child torture, nuclear bomb cooking, civil war, Muslim extremists calling for the destruction of Israel and it's Jew-pigs, Islamists taking over governments...and the list goes on and on.   But the US Secretary of Defense has decided to scold Israel for not reaching out to make peace.

Panetta Scolds Israel on Peace Talks

Defense Secretary Leon Panetta urged Israel on Friday to "reach out and mend fences" with Turkey, Egypt and other security partners in the Middle East, saying he is troubled by the Jewish state's growing isolation in the volatile region.

I wonder if Panetta shouldn't be scolding all the Muslim states who refuse to recognize the right of Israel to exist as a Jewish state?

I also wonder how close the line is between "scolding" and "cursing".  If we start cursing seems pretty clear by reading Genesis that God will soon be cursing us.

Muslim Brotherhood Takes Egypt by Storm

Surprise!!  For all of us who watched Mubarak fall in Egypt last February...many of us wondered aloud if Muslim extremists taking over was a strong possibility.  The news today appears to confirm our fears.

Muslim Brotherhood Takes Elections by Storm

Islamist parties are expected to control Cairo's parliament by the spring with the Muslim Brotherhood projected to be in the driver's seat.
Judges overseeing the vote count in Egypt's parliamentary elections say Islamist parties have won a majority of the contested seats in the first round. The judges spoke on condition of anonymity because official results are expected to be released later Thursday.

They say the Muslim Brotherhood could take 45 percent of the seats up for grabs. The liberal Egyptian bloc coalition and the ultra-fundamentalist Nour party are competing for second place.

Together, Islamist parties are expected to control a majority of parliamentary seats by March. This week's vote was the first of six stages of parliamentary elections that will last until then.

Continued success by Islamists will allow them to give Cairo's government and constitution a decidedly Islamist character. It could also lead Cairo to shift away from the West towards the Iranian axis.

It sure appears that Islam is rising...and so many of them are so angry!

Oh well.....not to fret....because we are constantly reminded (first off by President Bush following 9/11)  that Islam is truly a great religion of peace.

“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.
Allahu akbar!”

Maybe A Good Time for Isaiah 17?

Remember that Isaiah 17 clearly tells of a day when Damascus will be destroyed.  Many prophecy watchers believe it will be at the hands of the Israeli military.

The headline today telling of Iranian and North Korean military experts all meeting with the Syrians in Damascus may be perfect timing for Israel to make a strike on Damascus.

The saying, "killing two birds with one stone" would sure come into play if they did.

Syria: 'Iranian, N. Korean rocket experts hold Damascus meetings' 

Dozens of officials from North Korea and Iran have conducted meetings with representatives of the Syrian government in Damascus to help president Bashar al-Assad obtain weapons following the implementation of sanctions by members of the Arab League and other countries.

The meetings have been taking place in recent days, and were attended by experts in the production of rockets, according to Kuwaiti daily al-Seyassah, citing unnamed intelligence sources.

"The Syrian regime is afraid of losing power so is asking help from these two allies to put in place whatever means are necessary, even if it causes many deaths," an intelligence source told the newspaper. "The only way to stop further bloodshed is for foreign intervention."


"In the evening, sudden terror!  Before the morning, they (Damascus) are gone!"  Isaiah 17:14

The prophet sure hints that something like a nuclear attack appears to be coming for Damascus.

Can you imagine what the world will be like the day after that happens?

Prepare for Armageddon

Here's a good headline for you regarding the banks in the UK who were told to prepare for the ultimate collapse of the Eurozone.

'Prepare for armageddon'

City regulator the Financial Services Authority has told banks to ready themselves for armageddon by running "stress tests" on their balance sheets.

FSA chief Hector Sants met the heads of BARCLAYS, SANTANDER, HSBC, LLOYDS and RBS last week.

News of the shock warning came as the world's biggest central banks today launched a desperate bid to save the global economy by flooding markets with cheaper cash.

The Bank of England was one of six pledging to make it cheaper for big banks to access "unlimited amounts" of US dollars.

And EU chiefs warned Europe had TEN DAYS to solve the debt crisis or face catastrophe.


Only ten days to solve the crisis?!?  Come on took us 60 years to borrow all this money, how can you tell us we only have 10 days?!?!

Also notice the phrase "desperate bid to save the global economy"....and notice what their desperate attempt consists of...FLOODING THE MARKETS WITH CASH including UNLIMITED AMOUNTS OF U.S. DOLLARS!?!!

At some point in time there are going to be so many U.S. dollars running around the world that they will become worthless.  When will that day come?  I have no idea...but I guarantee it is coming.

This is probably why our Master, Jesus, told us to lay up our treasure in heaven where moth and rust will never destroy it.  I have a pretty good idea that Jesus is paying more on our deposits that Wells Fargo is paying on savings accounts...which is .15%   Yes you heard that right..."point one five percent".  That means that if you had $1,000,000 sitting in a savings account, that Wells Fargo would pay you $1,500 per year in interest.  So you can see that even the millionaires aren't buying too many trips to Walt Disney World on that kind of ching.

"But about silver and gold??  Surely that will save us from the looming disaster."

How are you going to carry silver and gold with you when the trumpet blows and we all go flying into the clouds to meet Jesus?

Another Mysterious Blast Rocks Iran

A few weeks ago there was a huge blast in Iran that was said to be caused by missile scientists cooking up some new missiles.  In that explosion the top General of Missile development was killed along with a few dozen others.  Iran said it was caused by their mistakes....but some said it was Israel and/or the USA who had sabotaged the military facility to slow the development of Iran's nuclear missile program.

Yesterday there was another explosion in Iran at a military facility.  This one is also being called mysterious.

Report: Mysterious blast in Iran's Isfahan damaged key nuclear site

London Times quotes Israel intelligence officials as saying that satellite images show this week's reported blast in Isfahan was 'no accident.'

According to reports by the semi-official Fars news agency, frightened residents called the fire department after the blast, forcing the city authorities to admit there had been an explosion. Residents reported that their windows shook from the explosion's force.

At first, Iranian officials denied the reports, with the governor of Isfahan later alleging that the blast was caused by an accident that had occurred during a nearby military drill.

However, a report in the Times on Wednesday alleged that the blast had not been a military accident, and that the city's nuclear facility was damaged.

The report quotes Israeli intelligence officials who based their conclusion on updated satellite images showing smoke billowing from the direction of the conversion plant.
According to the Israeli sources, there was "no doubt" that the blast had damaged the nuclear facility, and that the explosion was not an "accident."


Is it possible that the attacks against Iran have already started?  Is it possible that Israel is going to take out Iran's nuclear capability one huge explosion at a time using some form of sabotage or weaponized computer viruses rather than using conventional warfare tactics of planes and bombs?

Of course it is totally possible.  What better way to silence Iran and get them to turn on each other? 

If Israel attacks them one day using conventional weapons (which they still may have to) it would rally the Iranian people around their leaders and make overthrowing the regime all the more difficult.  Whereas if these explosions are Israel's doing...Iran will be in a difficult spot because they would look like idiots if they admitted that the Jews were blowing up their facilities.

What an exciting time to be alive and watch God's amazing story be played out right before our eyes!

Thank you Lord for counting us worthy to see all these things, and we pray that we will live with anticipation and purpose as we await your glorious return when you will call us into the clouds to meet you.

Even More Rumors

It is being reported that missiles are being moved within Israel in an "unusual" manner.  And here (again) are the prophetic parts which mention Jerusalem and Damascus.

JERUSALEM — Multiple eyewitnesses reported seeing Israeli military trucks in recent days transport and station large missiles at the periphery of Jerusalem and in locations inside the West Bank
The descriptions of the projectiles are consistent with the Jewish state’s mid-to-long range Jericho ballistic missiles.

The missile movement, if confirmed, would be considered unusual.

Syrian President Bashar al-Assad warned in an interview with a U.K. newspaper earlier this month that foreign intervention in Syria would cause an “earthquake” across the region and create another Afghanistan, while directly threatening the Jewish state.

Assad reportedly made similar comments in a meeting in early October with Turkish Foreign Minister Ahmad Davutoglu.

He was quoted stating, “If a crazy measure is taken against Damascus, I will need not more than six hours to transfer hundreds of rockets and missiles to the Golan Heights to fire them at Tel Aviv.”

Assad also reportedly warned that “all these events will happen in three hours, but in the second three hours, Iran will attack the U.S. warships in the Persian Gulf and the U.S. and European interests will be targeted simultaneously.”


It appears the stage is being set for something large to happen in Damascus.  The Bible says it is coming...we just don't know when.  But even the Arabs are turning against the nation of Syria, so the pressure on Damascus has to be intense.

Syria Tortures Children

Of course no country is perfect, but what kind of country tortures and kills children?  According to a UN investigation, Syria tortures and kills children.  Surprise!!

BEIRUT: A UN investigation has concluded that Syrian forces committed crimes against humanity by killing and torturing hundreds of children, including a 2-year-old girl reportedly shot to death so she wouldn't grow up to be a demonstrator.

The results of the inquiry, released on Monday, added to mounting international pressure on President Bashar Assad, a day after the Arab League approved sweeping sanctions to push his embattled regime to end the violence. Syria's foreign minister called the Arab move "a declaration of economic war" and warned of retaliation.

The report by a U.N. Human Rights Council panel found that at least 256 children were killed by government forces between mid-March and early November, some of them tortured to death
"Torture was applied equally to adults and children," said the assessment, released in Geneva. "Numerous testimonies indicated that boys were subjected to sexual torture in places of detention in front of adult men."

The list of alleged crimes committed by Syrian forces "include murder, torture, rape and other forms of sexual violence," said the panel's chairman, Paulo Sergio Pinheiro, a Brazilian professor. "We have a very solid body of evidence."


The mask is definitely being pulled off of Syria to reveal how nasty the people in power truly are.  Even the other nasty Arab countries have had enough of Syria's crimes and have ordered that Assad step down so that a new government can take over.

How do people get so nasty?  Is it evidence of the Holy Spirit filling people with love, compassion and mercy?  Obviously not.  Of course it is simply more evidence of Satanic evil manifesting itself...and using the religion of Islam to travel amongst and between it's followers.

Let's remember what Jesus said, "You are either FOR ME or AGAINST ME."  So you are either WITH CHRIST or WITH THE SPIRIT OF THE ANTICHRIST.

This news sure adds to the already long list of evidence of why Damascus will be torched. (Isaiah 17)  It's going to happen....we just don't know for sure if it will happen before or after the rapture of the church.

Pakistan is Trouble

I remember watching a TV show on PBS about 4 years ago and it was an interview with an ex-ambassador to the U.S. from Pakistan.  He was a Harvard educated dude who was VERY familiar with the USA and also VERY familiar with Pakistan.  For some reason I have never forgotten the interview because of the seriousness of this guys tone.  He made it VERY clear that Pakistan is kind of a keystone to the whole Middle East and Eastern regions...and that if things go haywire in Pakistan it very well could ignite not only the entire Middle East but could also reignite the East. 

Let's remember that Pakistan has been in a continuous war with India for over 50 years.  They lob shells at each other on the top of some mountain in the Kashmir range...and they have never agreed where the border is on the top of this to light this war up again in a big way wouldn't take much.

So today Pakistan is in the news again because it appears that possibly some NATO bombs went astray and killed 24 Pakistani soldiers at some military base.  When you join this info with the fact that we took out Osama Bin Laden on Pakistani soil without notifying the Pakistani government.....what he now have is a whole bunch of REALLY MIFFED Pakistani people.  What the world DOESN'T need now is more angry Muslims....but that is what we have.

And now they are burning Obama effigies and have shut down the supply lines to Afghanistan that the U.S. military desperately needs to keep our troops supplied.

Hundreds of enraged Pakistanis took to the streets across the country Sunday, burning an effigy of President Barack Obama and setting fire to US flags after 24 soldiers died in NATO air strikes.

The rallies were organised by opposition and right-wing Islamist groups in major cities of the nuclear-armed country of 167 million people, where opposition to the government's US alliance is rampant.

In Karachi, the port city used by the United States to ship supplies to troops fighting in Afghanistan, more than 700 people gathered outside the US consulate, an AFP photographer said.

They shouted: "down with America, stay away Americans, Pakistan is ours, we stand shoulder-to-shoulder with our army", while Pakistani riot police were deployed near the consulate.


What the heck happened here to Obama promising he was going to hit the "reset" button with the Muslim world??  Where is the hope and change?  Things seem to be getting worse.  Is there any man out there who can rule this complicated world??

And of course the answer is, "yes!".....there is such a man, but he won't be Democrat or Republican.  He will come riding in on a white horse and will promise peace and safety...but 3 1/2 years after signing the peace agreement with Israel, he will proceed to sit in the soon to be built Temple in Israel and will declare himself to be God....and will demand that the world worship him.

All the things that we are seeing MUST HAPPEN.  It all must be torn down to prepare the way for the Antichrist.

Euro Collapse Would Mean Civil Unrest

We have been wondering for weeks what it would actually mean and what would actually happen if the Euro ends up collapsing.  It would be an unprecedented event so there really isn't any history you can look we just keep looking for opinions on what may happen when this scheme comes apart.

As the Italian government struggled to borrow and Spain considered seeking an international bail-out, British ministers privately warned that the break-up of the euro, once almost unthinkable, is now increasingly plausible.

Diplomats are preparing to help Britons abroad through a banking collapse and even riots arising from the debt crisis.
The Treasury confirmed earlier this month that contingency planning for a collapse is now under way.
A senior minister has now revealed the extent of the Government’s concern, saying that Britain is now planning on the basis that a euro collapse is now just a matter of time.

If eurozone governments defaulted on their debts, the European banks that hold many of their bonds would risk collapse.

Some analysts say the shock waves of such an event would risk the collapse of the entire financial system, leaving banks unable to return money to retail depositors and destroying companies dependent on bank credit.

The Financial Services Authority this week issued a public warning to British banks to bolster their contingency plans for the break-up of the single currency.

Some economists believe that at worst, the outright collapse of the euro could reduce GDP in its member-states by up to half and trigger mass unemployment.

Analysts at UBS, an investment bank earlier this year warned that the most extreme consequences of a break-up include risks to basic property rights and the threat of civil disorder.  


So what have we learned?  We have learned that if the Euro collapses we can expect businesses to go bankrupt, leading to massive unemployment which will lead to civil disorder (riots) which will lead to unhappy people trampling on personal property rights of others...which means people will probably beat on each other while trying to steal other people's stuff.

It won't be pretty.

Today in Israel....

Today we have a few headlines about Israel.  The first one is that Israel may shut off power and water to the Gaza strip if the Palestinians continue to seek unification with Hamas. 

The threats were issued by Danny Ayalon, Israel's deputy foreign minister, on Israeli Radio on Saturday in response to a recent meeting between Mahmoud Abbas, president of the Palestinian Authority, and Hamas leader Khaled Meshaal in Cairo.

Mr Ayalon claimed a deal with the extremist faction would turn the Palestinian Authority into "an authority of terrorism and this would block any hope of reaching any peace agreement with Israel".


And the other news is that of Iran claiming that 150,000 missiles are pointed at Israel.

 Iranian Defense Minister Brigadier General Ahmad Vahidi said that Iran has up to 150,000 missiles pointed at Israel, according to the semi-official Iranian FARS news agency.

According to the report, Vahidi questioned threats against the Islamic Republic from the Jewish State, asking "How many missiles have they prepared themselves for? 10,000? 20,000? 50,000? 100,000, 150,000 or more?"


Israel sure seems to be in a pickle everywhere they turn
