Iran Blames Israel for Beirut Bombing

First off, please notice that Israel is the subject of top two articles on Google News this morning.

The first is about Israel boarding a boat filled with Palestinian activists.  We will probably blog on this later.

The 2nd is the title for this post.

DUBAI - Iran on Saturday condemned a car bomb attack in Beirut that killed a prominent Lebanese intelligence official on Friday and suggested that Israel was to blame.

A senior Israeli official dismissed the suggestion as "beyond pathetic".

The slain Lebanese official, Brigadier-General Wissam al-Hassan, was close to several Lebanese politicians who back the uprising in Syria and led several investigations into Syrian meddling in Lebanese affairs, including one that implicated Damascus and its Lebanese ally Hezbollah in the assassination of former prime minister Rafik al-Hariri in 2005.

"This action was taken with the aim of sowing dissension among different currents and segments of the Lebanese people and was conducted by an element who has never had in mind the interests of the Lebanese people and government and who only strives for its own impure interests and goals," said a statement posted on the Iranian Foreign Ministry's website.

"Without a doubt the main enemy of the people of Lebanon and the region is the Zionist regime (Israel), which benefits from insecurity and instability in the region," ministry spokesman Ramin Mehmanparast said, according to the statement.

It offered no evidence for the suggestion of Israeli involvement.


They offer no it must be, THE JEWS DID IT!  Yes!!  It was that nasty nation of Israel who 'strives for its own impure interests and goals!"

The world is turning on Israel really fast friends.  This also seems to be coming like a flood.  It is so illogical to imagine the world so upset about 6 million people on a tiny sliver of land...but that is exactly what is happening.

Forget about Assad in Syria butchering 30,000 innocent Muslims caught in the crossfire....its those dang Jews that were really the stumbling block to world peace!

Christian Section of Beirut Bombed

A big bomb blast recently went off in Beirut.  I'm gonna take a wild guess here and say it was Muslims who did it?  As of now 8 people are being reported dead with dozens injured.

And yes, it happened in the Christian section of the city.

BEIRUT, Lebanon — A large bomb exploded in the heart of Beirut’s Christian section on Friday, and Civil Defense officials said at least eight people were killed. The blast injured many others, shattered windows for blocks and spread panic in a city where memories of sectarian violence from Lebanon’s long civil war have been resurrected by the conflict in neighboring Syria.

The identities of the dead were not immediately clear, and there was no word on who was behind the blast, which the authorities said had been caused either by a car bomb or a bomb hidden in the street or under a vehicle parked in the affluent Sassine area, about two blocks from a gleaming shopping center.

Residents and politicians noted that the explosion took place in the same area where a bomb hit the headquarters of the Christian Phalange Party in 1982, assassinating its leader, Bashir Gemayel, just after he had been elected president.

Civil Defense officers who rushed to the scene picked pieces of flesh off a security fence and put them into plastic bags. Wounded people, many of them elderly residents of the neighborhood, were emerging from houses, sobbing. One woman walked in a bloodied nightgown.

The physical scars of the civil war that tore apart Beirut’s central downtown are hardly evident today in the vibrant districts of Ashrafiyeh in the largely Christian east and Hamra in the largely Muslim west. Once strongholds of Christian and Muslim factions, they are now usually peaceful areas full of pubs and restaurants where Lebanese mix freely. But vestiges of the divisions remain evident with posters of the leaders of each sect killed over the years in political violence.


Did you know that Beirut used to be called the "Paris of Lebanon"?  It used to be a place full of restaurants, arts, beaches and hotels.  That all ended when civil war broke out in 1975 and lasted for about 16 years.

You can Google the history, but of course Muslim factions were VERY INVOLVED in the Civil War.  And now Lebanon is the headquarters of Hezbollah.

More evidence that when Islam moves into a will ultimately bear bad fruit.


The Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) had another body blow yesterday by an appeals court in New York.

The 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in New York slammed another nail in the coffin of the so-called Defense of Marriage Act on Thursday. The noxious 1996 federal law defines marriage as being between one man and one woman, thus denying same-sex families the right to marry and the same financial and legal stability afforded straight couples who marry. It’s flat-out discrimination. And by a 2-to-1 vote, the appeals court agreed.

The majority opinion in Windsor v. United States, written by Judge Dennis Jacobs, ruled that DOMA violated the Constitution’s guarantee of equal protection under the law. The conservative jurist appointed by President George H. W. Bush in 1992 even adopted the view of the Obama administration in declaring that laws singling out gay men and lesbians deserve “heightened scrutiny” by the courts.

In this case, all four factors justify heightened scrutiny: A) homosexuals as a group have historically endured persecution and discrimination; B) homosexuality has no relation to aptitude or ability to contribute to society; C) homosexuals are a discernible group with non-obvious distinguishing characteristics, especially in the subset of those who enter same-sex marriages; and D) the class remains a politically weakened minority.
This rationale was the basis for the Justice Department determination that DOMA is unconstitutional and that it would no longer defend the statute against legal challenge. And Jacobs’s use of “heightened scrutiny” is a first for an appellate court and goes a step farther than the May ruling from the Boston federal appeals court that also found DOMA unconstitutional in Gill v. Office of Personnel Management.


Have you ever had water come into your basement when it rains hard in the spring?  Have you ever stood there with a mop and a wet vac and try to stay ahead of the seeping water?  Have you ever got to the point where the water starts coming in so fast that it simply becomes futile to stop it with your mop and bucket?

I hate to say it, but the gay marriage thing is coming like a flood.  I started as a trickle but now I'm not sure our mop and bucket is going to stop the flood.

What a sad day.

Of course they never talk about the bi-sexual rights today....but that is coming...when a man will be allowed to marry ONE MAN AND ONE WOMAN.  After that happens a man will be allowed to marry two women, etc....

Pandora's box has been opened.

Heaven help us.

Muslim Attempts to Bomb Federal Reserve

Did you know that a Muslim student from Bangladesh came to America to go to college in Missouri, but really wanted to blow up a major building in New York City to avenge the death of Osama Bin Laden?

Did you know that he was arrested today?

Did you know that he bought 1000 pounds of fake explosives, put them in a rented truck and parked the truck next to the Fed building and tried to detonate it so it would kill the most people possible?

Did you know that ABC Good Morning America refused to say the word "Muslim" or "Islam" while they were doing the report this morning?

Did you know that I just went to Google News to read more about the story and Google must not feel the story is relevant enough to make their headline news?

I went to ABC to find the story. 

You can watch the video and read the report here;

The dudes name is, Quazi Mohammad Rezwanul Ahsan Nafis. 

It just goes to show you....not all Muslims are terrorists BUT almost all terrorists are Muslims.

One Step Closer to Curses

It seems that the daylight continues building between Israel and the USA.  With each passing day there seems to be more news that gives evidence of the USA crawling away from full support for Israel...or maybe even worse, evidence of USA messing with the division of God's Holy Land.

US Permanent Representative to the United Nations, Ambassador Susan E. Rice said on Monday that the US "does not accept the legitimacy of Israeli settlement activity, and will continue to oppose any efforts to legalize outposts."

Speaking at the Security Council Open Debate on the Middle East, Rice emphasized: "The fate of existing settlements must be dealt with by the parties along with other permanent-status issues."

Referring to anti-Palestinian violence and desecration of religious sites, Rice added: "Israel should step up its efforts to deter, confront, and prosecute anti-Palestinian violence and extremist hate crimes."

She stated: "In the West Bank, the recent and repeated destruction of Palestinian olive groves, a critical source of income for the local population, is deplorable. We look to Israeli authorities to act decisively to protect these resources and investigate such acts."

Turning to Middle East peace efforts, Rice commented: “We actively support the creation of a Palestinian state as part of a two-state solution resulting from direct negotiations without preconditions between the Israelis and Palestinians.”


Yes, I know Israel isn't perfect....far, far from it.  However, that simply doesn't change the promises of God when it comes to His Holy Land. 

Joel 3:2
I will gather all nations and bring them down to the Valley of Jehoshaphat. There I will put them on trial for what they did to my inheritance, my people Israel, because they scattered my people among the nations and divided up my land.

Has this ever happened folks?  Has God gathered all the nations and put them on trial??  NO!!  That means it is GOING TO HAPPEN in the future! 

When Christ comes for his bride, the church...I hope we can all stand in front of him and give good reports on how we treated all peoples, how we treated all brothers and sisters in Christ and I certainly hope we can give a good accounting on how we treated the Jews and how we supported Israel during these Last Days.

As for the USA trying to stop Jews from building on Jewish land, given to them by God.....that's just not gonna go well when God gathers the nations for trial.

Egyptian On Trial for Desecrating Bible

Of course we all know there is a huge double standard within Islam.  If anyone tears off pages of the Koran or decides to burn one....the entire 23 nations of Islam would have a conniption fit and the rioting may commence at once!

But what happens if someone burns the Holy Bible?  Cue the crickets chirping.

Well be encouraged Christians!!...because Egypt is trying a man who ripped up the New Testament.

Radical Muslim blogger Sheikh Ahmed Mohamed Mahmoud Abdallah, also known as Abu Islam, has spoken out on his recent charges for "contempt for religion" after he ripped the pages of a New Testament Bible in mid-September in Cairo, Egypt.
Abdallah's charges, which include "contempt for the Christian religion" and are filed under the country's umbrella of anti-blasphemy laws, are the first of their kind to be investigated by government officials.

"There is no such thing as the Bible or the Torah, there is only the Quran!" Abu Islam told the Egyptian online newspaper Ahram Online in an exclusive interview regarding his charges, arguing that his actions are not illegal because in his opinion, Christianity is not a valid religion.


Did you catch that??  In his opinion, Christianity is not a valid he rips up the NT!!  But of course if in my opinion, Islam is not a valid religion, and I rip up the Koran...the nations of Islam will go on a hell-fire rampage.

As we have said numerous times before...when something lacks any evidence of logic, there has to be some sort of supernatural power behind it.  In this case, Islamic protesters lack any sense of logic, and we know for certain that Allah IS NOT the God of Abraham, Isaac and that means that Satan is the supernatural power behind how illogical many Muslims are...especially those who would take time out of their busy days to protest some YouTube video made in another country that has freedom of speech.

We will need to keep our eyes on this case and see if this Egyptian blogger gets the same stiff penalty for ripping up a New Testament as some other Egyptian would get for ripping up a Koran.

If not...then we will have further evidence of even more illogical happenings in this backward country.

Finally....please, please, PLEASE remember that Christ told us to pray for our enemies.  If we start to feel hatred and ill will towards these lost souls in Islam...then we BECOME part of the problem.  I would rather that the Bride of Christ be part of the solution to this massive deception called 'Islam".

New England Earthquake Biggest in 30 Years

As we have mentioned numerous times, we hope you all are watching for earthquakes on your own because we seldom post about them much anymore.  If we tried to keep up on all the quakes, we would be writing about them almost every day.

However, the massive quakes and the rare quakes will continue to catch our attention.

Today we have news of a 'rare' quake.

Tuesday's Earthquake Equals Biggest in New England in 30 Years

The 4.0 magnitude earthquake centered in Lake Arrowhead, Maine early Tuesday night was felt all over New England, from Maine to Connecticut, including right here in Durham and Middlefield.

It was the largest earthquake in New England since 1982 when a 4.7 quake centered in Laconia, New Hampshire shook homes and rattled shelves.

Dr. John Ebel, a geophysics professor at Boston College and director of the Weston Observatory Boston College, said earthquakes start to cause damage when they reach a 5.0 magnitude.

As far Tuesday’s quake goes, he suspects that homes near the epicenter may have had some dishes rattle and cracking in old plaster walls.

New England is no stranger to earthquake activity.

The last earthquake to reach the 4.0 threshold was in 2006, a 4.0 quake in Bar Harbor, Maine. And a grand-daddy of New England quakes dates to 1755.

That quake is estimated to have been a 6.25 shaker and was felt throughout New England. In 1925, a 6.2 quake struck in Canada and was felt in New England, as well.

So, what is the potential for a big one, a California-esque quake in staid New England?

Dr. Ebel said such a quake could happen here.


Yes, Dr. Ebel...a massive earthquake WILL happen there.  It will be an earthquake of such force that the world has NEVER experienced one like it.

All of these shaking's are simply foreshadowing of that massive quake that will happen at the end of the Tribulation, and warning signs that are meant to wake people up.  The earth IS groaning.

"There will be earthquakes in various places...."

Tower of Economic Babble

An article with the post title appeared in the Wall Street Journal today.  What a ball of confusion!  The world certainly appears poised for some type of monstrous financial calamity....but meanwhile consumer confidence is at about a 4 year high!

Can anyone say the word, "disconnect"?

In case you lead a normal life and had better things to pay attention to, the world's economic leaders met in Tokyo this weekend. They didn't agree on much, but no doubt the Japanese cuisine was splendid.

This not to say that the grandees were mute. Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke lectured that the world should welcome his dollar devaluation policy, no matter the upward pressure it puts on many other currencies. Brazil's foreign minister lectured the Europeans about their "delayed reactions" to the financial crisis.

The Europeans lectured the Americans about the looming "fiscal cliff," and Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner returned the favor by lamenting the "headwinds from Europe" hurting U.S. growth. The Japanese and Chinese glared at each another over contested offshore islands, and the Chinese refused even to send their most senior officials.

Meanwhile, the poobahs at the International Monetary Fund lectured everyone about everything. In particular, the IMF wants Europe and the U.S. to pursue "fiscal consolidation," albeit not too quickly lest it hurt growth. In 2009, the IMF said spend more fast, then in 2010 it said spend less and raise taxes fast, and now it says raise taxes not so fast.

This babble is what a world without leadership looks like, specifically without American leadership. The world doesn't much want to listen to a U.S. that is growing at a mere 1.3%, is showering the world with excess dollars, and is increasingly picking trade fights for domestic political gain. The result is that every country goes its own way, global trade and capital flows ebb (see Messrs. Warsh and Davis nearby), and world growth suffers. Leading from behind doesn't work any better in economics than it does on security.


Can you see how the global financial condition is being prepared for the day when a man filled with charisma and loaded with answers will be welcomed on stage?

Can you say, "anti-christ'?

Britain Has Alien-War Weapons

Another day...another headline in the MSM that is talking about aliens.

In an interview with MSN, Nick Pope, who worked for the Ministry of Defence for 21 years, said that while Britain doesn't have a war plan, it certainly had sophisticated enough weaponry to defend itself.

Mr Pope, whose job it was to advise on the threat posed by other life forms, said that in the event of an attack he expected that we would "quickly adapt our plans for other more current war scenarios."


"One possibility would be trying to unite all the nations of the world. For those who think that far-fetched, Ronald Reagan once hinted at it in a speech to the UN. He said 'I occasionally think how quickly we would set aside our difference if we faced some alien threat from the other side.'"


"Between 1991 and 1994, my job at the MoD was to investigate the 200-300 reported sightings of UFOs in the UK each year to see if there was evidence of a potential threat or something of general defence interest.

"One of the things that was interesting was that when people reported seeing UFOs these things were capable of extraordinary manoeuvres and speeds. They were much faster than our military jets so we wanted to find out about the technology and if we could find it useful.
"Defence scientists were very interested in the fact they might have some kind of exotic propulsion system."


"I am absolutely convinced that elsewhere in the universe there must be other life and I am also convinced that some of that is going to be intelligent. I am open-minded about the possibility that some of that life is visiting us down here but just as our space programme is reaching out to find out what is out there, it seems other life forms could be motivated by the same thing."


"It's a case in the UK at Rendlesham Forest, in 1980, in Suffolk between two military bases. It was not a sighting of a UFO in the sky but a UFO that actually landed. Some of the witnesses described a smallish craft.

"It came on a second night and when military personnel examined the landing site they found indentations in the ground and defence intelligence staff assessed the radiation levels with a Geiger counter and found radiation levels at eight times normal.

"We told parliament there was 'no defence significance' but did so with tongue firmly in cheek because you cannot have a UFO land between two defence bases without it being of enormous defence significance."


Friends, this man being interviewed is not some 17 yr old boy smoking pot in his basement while watching sci-fi movies.  He joins the hundreds of other highly intelligent, military insiders who are telling us that intelligent alien life exists.

Can you see how mankind continues to be prepared for some strange event happening and coming from the sky?  Can you understand how Anti-Christ may elevate himself in the eyes of all mankind if he comes up with some type of answer that explains who these "aliens" are? 

Can you begin to understand why the inhabitants of planet earth may attempt to shoot down Jesus Christ, the Bride of Christ and the angels accompanying us when he appears in the sky and the end of The Tribulation?

Can you see how "aliens" may be blamed for the rapture of the church?

As always, we will restate our belief that all the evidence we have seen, read and heard points to the conclusion that these beings that are manifesting themselves are NOT intelligent life forms visiting us from other planets.  They are actually demons in disguise that will fit into the chaos and deceit that will be so prevalent during the Tribulation.

I pray that they won't actually show up en mass before the rapture.  Can you imagine the faith that would be tested by all of us if the rest of the world looks to these beings as saviors and even messiahs...while we followers of Christ are standing back and saying, "In the name of Jesus Christ, get behind me you demon-spawn!"

Revelation 13

4 People worshiped the dragon because he had given authority to the beast, and they also worshiped the beast and asked, “Who is like the beast? Who can wage war against it?”

5 The beast was given a mouth to utter proud words and blasphemies and to exercise its authority for forty-two months. 6 It opened its mouth to blaspheme God, and to slander his name and his dwelling place and those who live in heaven. 7 It was given power to wage war against God’s holy people and to conquer them. And it was given authority over every tribe, people, language and nation. 8 All inhabitants of the earth will worship the beast—all whose names have not been written in the Lamb’s book of life, the Lamb who was slain from the creation of the world.

11 Then I saw a second beast, coming out of the earth. It had two horns like a lamb, but it spoke like a dragon. 12 It exercised all the authority of the first beast on its behalf, and made the earth and its inhabitants worship the first beast, whose fatal wound had been healed. 13 And it performed great signs, even causing fire to come down from heaven to the earth in full view of the people. 14 Because of the signs it was given power to perform on behalf of the first beast, it deceived the inhabitants of the earth. It ordered them to set up an image in honor of the beast who was wounded by the sword and yet lived.

Lord Jesus, save us from the time of trial and deliver us from evil. Amen!

USA No Longer Has Protestant Majority

Here is another article for the 'first time ever' file...and sadly it is more bad news for the Bride of Christ in the USA.

NEW YORK—For the first time in its history, the U.S. doesn't have a Protestant majority, according to a new study. One reason: The number of Americans with no religious affiliation is on the rise.

The percentage of Protestant adults in the U.S. has reached a low of 48%, the first time that the Pew Forum on Religion & Public Life has reported with certainty that the number has fallen to less than 50%. The drop has long been anticipated and comes at a time when no Protestants are on the U.S. Supreme Court and Republicans have their first presidential ticket with no Protestant nominees.

Among the reasons for the change are the growth in nondenominational Christians and a spike in the number of American adults who say they have no religion. The Pew study, released Tuesday, found that about 20% of Americans say they have no religious affiliation, an increase from 15% in the last five years.


Sad.  20% of American have no religious affiliation.  If my math is correct and there are 330 million Americans...that means that 66 million people who are our co workers, friends and neighbors probably have no intention at all of going to worship God on any given Sunday.

"The harvest is at hand and the workers are few."

I'd say we have a rather large mission field right here in our own backyard.

However, with a church on every street corner and Christian radio and TV in every town, I would say that most Americans are going to have a pretty tough time telling Jesus that they never had a chance to hear the Gospel.

They certainly had a chance....they just chose not to take it.

Bride of Christ Begins Cursing Israel?

We can't turn our TV's or computers on any single day and not hear of another atrocity committed in a Muslim nation by some Islamic group hyped up on the Koran.  And of course Russia and China make sure you don't open curse them or you may end up breaking rocks in some far away labor camp.

But according to a group of church leaders from numerous Christian denominations, we need to look hard at stopping our help to Israel because they are terrible human rights abusers.

Leaders of several major US Christian denominations — including Protestants, Presbyterians, Baptists, Lutherans and Methodists — have asked members of Congress to reconsider US aid to Israel in light of “widespread Israeli human rights violations.”

In a letter dated October 5, the signatories say “unconditional US military assistance” to Israel is a factor in “deteriorating conditions in Israel and the occupied Palestinian territories” that threaten the “realization of a just peace.
The Church leaders missive asks for “an immediate investigation into possible violations by Israel of the US Foreign Assistance Act and the US Arms Export Control Act, which respectively prohibit assistance to any country which engages in a consistent pattern of human rights violations and limit the use of US weapons to ‘internal security’ or ‘legitimate self-defense.’”
The letter continues: “We urge Congress to undertake careful scrutiny to ensure that our aid is not supporting actions by the government of Israel that undermine prospects for peace. We urge Congress to hold hearings to examine Israel’s compliance, and we request regular reporting on compliance and the withholding of military aid for non-compliance.”
The three-page document, which includes examples of “specific, systematic human rights violations related to US military support,” was signed by high-ranking officials from 16 denominations.
“As Christian leaders in the United States,” they write, “it is our moral responsibility to question the continuation of unconditional US financial assistance to the government of Israel. Realizing a just and lasting peace will require this accountability, as continued US military assistance to Israel — offered without conditions or accountability — will only serve to sustain the status quo and Israel’s military occupation of the Palestinian territories.”
The letter also decried what it called “a troubling and consistent pattern of disregard by the government of Israel” for US policies that support peace in the region, citing Israel’s failure to halt settlement activity, despite repeated US government requests.
“We write to you as Christian leaders representing US churches and religious organizations committed to seeking a just peace for Israelis and Palestinians,” the letter said, adding that the organizations have “worked alongside our Palestinian Christian sisters and brothers to help build a peaceful and resilient Palestinian civil society.”
Holy blessings and curses!!  Can they be serious???  We have sent Egypt $5 billion per year over the past decades even though we all knew that was a foul nation FULL of human rights abuses...where were these same church leaders then?  Where are those church leaders as we look at Pakistan and the Christian persecution there??
Most terrifying is their comments about 'Israel's failure to halt settlement activity'...because now they are messing with land issues again....and they simply have no clue they are poking God in the eye when they start messing with HIS LAND.
I would strongly suggest you find out if YOUR denomination signed this letter and if they did we all need to decide what we are going to do about it.
I, for one, want no part of a denomination that has turned so negatively biased towards God's chosen people and His nation Israel.
Where do you suppose this anti-Zionist sentiment is coming from?  Hmmmm....let's think about it for a second.....could it be Satan??  Who else would love for the Bride of Christ to turn on God's Bride, Israel?
You simply can't make that up.

Vice-Presidential Debate

It sounds like about 70 million of you folks tuned into the debate between VP Biden and VP-hopeful Paul Ryan last week.

Of course the talking heads will chew up the polls and digest the comments for 3-4 days and then they will forget about it all once they get a mouthful of next weeks presidential debate.

Of course the Dems thought Biden did a great job of being tough.  Republicans thought Biden was being a disrepectful twit who refused to allow Ryan to have his time without being interupted.  He rudely laughed and rolled his eyes throughout the debate.

A thoughtful reader sent me this Bible passage that may have some bearing on last Thursday's debate.

Proverbs 29:9 (NLV)

9 When a wise man argues with a foolish man, the fool only gets angry or laughs, and there is no peace and quiet.
