Shocking Truth Uncovered about U.N. Taxation Plan pdf - Powerful international organizations and personalities, including the United Nations and left-wing billionaire oligarch George Soros, are promoting global taxes that would extract trillions of dollars from the American people. In violation of the letter and spirit of the so-called "Helms-Biden" U.N. "reform" law, which was passed by the U.S. Congress to prohibit the world body from promoting or adopting international taxes, the U.N. has prepared a book, New Sources of Development Finance, advocating global taxes on the American people. The book suggests global environmental taxes and a global currency tax that would affect the international investments of ordinary Americans. According to journalist Steven Solomon, a former staff reporter at Forbes, such a proposal, known as the Tobin Tax, "might net some $13 trillion a year..." more...

The Secret Agenda Behind the Law of the Sea Treaty pdf - The Bush Administration supports Senate ratification of the Law of the Sea Treaty (UNCLOS), a measure so extreme that former U.S. Ambassador to the U.N. Jeane Kirkpatrick said that it was viewed as the cornerstone of a Marxist-oriented New International Economic Order (NIEO). This was conceived as a scheme to transfer money and technology from the U.S. and other developed countries to the Third World. Kirkpatrick strongly opposed ratification of UNCLOS. The elements of a world government could be put in place if UNCLOS, described as the most comprehensive treaty ever and a “Constitution of the Oceans,” is ratified and implemented. At a time when conservatives and Republicans are raising concerns about activist judges on the national level who cite international law and foreign rulings in their opinions, UNCLOS will open the U.S. up to international lawsuits and climate change litigation, providing a back door for implementation of the unratified and costly global warming treaty. more...

Envoys from Mideast Quartet to meet in Jerusalem on Tuesday Haaretz (June 22, 2007) - Envoys from the Quartet of Middle East peace brokers are to meet in Jerusalem on Tuesday, a day after Olmert and Abbas are due to attend a summit in Egypt. Miri Eisin, a spokeswoman for Olmert, said "low-level officials" from the United States, European Union, United Nations and Russia would meet. Sources in Jerusalem said the attendees would be special envoys rather than ministers. Olmert is set to announce the release of frozen Palestinian tax funds as part of a "package of gestures" in the regional summit in Sharm el-Sheikh, diplomats and Israeli officials said Friday. Sergei Yakovlev, a Russian Foreign Ministry envoy for Middle East peacemaking, said the envoys "will discuss the situation in the region, the talks for the Quartet and plans of action for the future," Russia's Interfax news agency reported. A higher-level meeting of officials from the Quartet - the United States, the European Union, Russia and the United Nations - was to have taken place Monday in Egypt. But that session was delayed to allow Quartet officials time to assess changes in the region after Hamas' violent takeover of the Gaza Strip last week. There has been no official announcement from the Quartet of the planned meeting, but in Moscow, a Russian envoy said the meeting would take place. Yakovlev said the envoys will discuss the situation in the region, the talks for the Quartet and plans of action for the future, Interax reported. Peace efforts have been complicated by the emergence of a two Palestinian entities, one ruled by Hamas in Gaza and the other by Fatah in the West Bank. But moderate regional leaders have been quick to use this development to promote peacemaking between Israel and moderate Palestinians in the West Bank.

Farouk al-Shara strongly supports Syria's ties with Iran Islamic Republic News Agency (June 22, 2007) - Syrian Vice President Farouk al-Shara here on Thursday strongly supports his country's ties with Tehran and underlined that it would be to the benefit of Arab countries. The Syrian official made the remarks in a press conference with domestic and foreign reporters in Damascus. "If Iran had remained under reign of its formal monarchical regime, the Zionist regime would have occupied the whole region," he said. "We always find friends for ourselves prior to any confrontation with the Zionist regime," he said. Relations between Iran and Syria in the past or at present have always safeguarded the interests of Arab states and Iran, he pointed out. Syria seeks to meet the interests of Persian Gulf littoral states by consolidating its ties with Tehran, he said, adding that "We have always tried to boost relations between Iran and these Arab countries." The Zionist regime has called on Syria to sever ties with Tehran as a precondition for resumption of talks, he said, adding that "If Syria calls on the Zionist regime to sever ties with the US, will they accept?" he asked. Those who set such preconditions are actually unwilling to make peace, he said.

EU Leaders Agree On Foreign Chief Reuters (June 22, 2007) - European Union leaders reached broad agreement on Friday on a single post to run EU foreign affairs, the first success at a summit on the bloc's future, but Poland held up progress towards a treaty to reform the Union. The leaders of the 27 member states agreed on the job title, role and powers of a High Representative of the European Union for foreign policy, defense and security, diplomats said. The post will combine the jobs of foreign policy chief Javier Solana, who does mostly crisis management, and External Relations Commissioner Benita Ferrero-Waldner, who controls the executive European Commission's aid budget. The new foreign policy chief would chair meetings of EU foreign ministers and head a combined external action service drawing on both national and EU diplomats, after Britain dropped its reservations on those points, the diplomats said. The provisional accord was reached on the second day of a crucial summit meant to launch negotiations on a treaty to reform the bloc's institutions, replacing the defunct EU constitution and helping the bloc face up to global challenges. German Chancellor Angela Merkel, hosting the summit, struggled to break Poland's resistance to planned changes to the bloc's voting system which Warsaw says would favor member states with larger populations and reduce its own influence. Merkel met Polish President Lech Kaczynski three times in 12 hours to try to ease his concerns. "We're working hard. The problems are not yet solved but everyone is trying," said Merkel, who also met the leaders of the other states with concerns over the treaty -- Britain, the Czech Republic and the Netherlands. Finnish President Tarja Halonen said she sensed progress. "I would say the atmosphere was today better...I am more optimistic now than I was this morning," she told reporters. Danish Prime Minister Anders Fogh Rasmussen said a lot of hard talking lay ahead: "I still believe in an agreement but it will be a long negotiation." more...

Envoy: Iran open to nuclear compromise Reuters (June 22, 2007) - Iran is ready to provide answers on past suspicious nuclear activities to the International Atomic Energy Agency within the next few months, the agency's head said Friday after meeting with the country's top nuclear negotiator. But the Iranian official suggested the offer was conditional to an end of U.N. Security Council involvement in Iran's nuclear program. The council has already imposed two sets of sanctions on the Islamic republic over the past half year for its refusal to freeze uranium enrichment and is poised to impose new penalties. Such terms would likely be unacceptable to the five permanent council members plus Germany — the six powers that have spearheaded the effort to pressure Iran to give up its enrichment ambitions. The Security Council has demanded that Iran provide answers to the IAEA, the U.N.'s nuclear watchdog, on activities that could be linked to a weapons program. But it has also called on Iran to freeze enrichment and stop building a heavy water reactor that will produce plutonium — like enriched uranium a material that could provide the fissile core of nuclear warheads. With the main emphasis on blunting the possible nuclear threat from Iran by depriving it of technologies that could be used for such weapons, any concession that falls short of suspending both enrichment and construction of the reactor was unlikely to be far reaching enough. more...

If I remember correctly, Iran has already promised to reveal to the world what they're doing and it seems they keep pushing it back. Sounds like they're biding their time... but what could they be planning? I think Israel may catch wind of their plans soon through Syria, prompting the destruction of Damascus placing the hooks in the jaws of Iran, Russia, and Turkey. We shall see soon enough. Events cannot keep snowballing without some kind of release and war is the word whispered throughout the Middle East. Radical Islam has declared it, Israel has tried to ignore it in talks for peace, but I believe them. Moreover, God's Word says they will attack Israel in Ezekiel 38,39. And when that happens, Christians around the world need to be prepared to declare the glory of God and make the world aware of the prophecy fulfilled. From there I believe we will see the temple rebuilt in Jerusalem. Things will be much clearer to those watching then. I think we're about to have it clarified for us, keep watching!

Polish PM fears there may be no EU compromise Reuters (June 22, 2007) - Polish Prime Minister Jaroslaw Kaczynski said on Friday he feared there may be no compromise at a European Union summit on a treaty to reform the bloc's institutions. Speaking live on Polish television as his twin brother, President Lech Kaczynski, was presenting Warsaw's response to a German presidency compromise proposal in Brussels, he said: "We have hit a wall." "The lack of any willingness to back down is very clear on the side of our partners and I am afraid there may be no way out...I am very sorry about that," he said. Poland was and still is ready to compromise but "one cannot give way all the time," he added. A senior aide to the prime minister was quoted as saying Poland could not accept the compromise on the voting system that was on the table but he did not exclude further negotiation. "The Polish side cannot accept the proposals, what is now on the negotiating table," Andrzej Sados, a minister in the prime minister's office, told the PAP news agency. The Polish president gave Poland's response in Brussels to German Chancellor Angela Merkel, chairing a summit of the 27-nation bloc already into its second day. EU diplomats in Brussels said the comments did not signal a breakdown in the negotiations but appeared to be tactical rather than Warsaw's last word. more...

Sarkozy Could be Key Player at EU Summit Haaretz (June 21, 2007) - France's President Sarkozy heads to summit talks on Thursday, eager to overcome two years of crisis caused by a French rejection of a constitution for the bloc. He could prove a valuable ally to German Chancelor Merkel. Leaders of the European Union's 27 member states hope the two-day summit in Brussels will clear the way for a simplified treaty to replace the doomed constitution, blocked by French and Dutch referendums in 2005. It is Sarkozy's first European summit since he was elected president on May 6, promising a major diplomatic drive to break the EU's insitutional deadlock. Sarkozy told lawmakers from his right-wing ruling party Wednesday he was expecting "two very difficult days starting tomorrow, since what is at stake is nothing less than pulling Europe out of immobility." For the past month, Sarkozy has been engaged in telephone diplomacy and meetings from Warsaw to Madrid to boost the chances of an agreement this week. He has also held consultations with French political leaders of all stripes -- including with far-right leader Jean-Marie Le Pen, normally a pariah in French politics -- before heading to the negotiating table in Brussels. Germany, which holds the EU's presidency until the end of the month, hopes member states will adopt a text outlining the treaty's contents, and setting a mandate for an intergovernmental conference to hammer out a final version. Sarkozy's spokesman said Tuesday the French president was determined "to support the German presidency as much as possible" and to "do everything to contribute to its success." more...

Iran, Libya Adopt Close Stand On Regional, International Issues Islamic Republic News Agency (June 20, 2007) - First Vice President Parviz Davoudi said on Wednesday that the Islamic Republic of Iran and Libya have common and close view points on regional and international issues. Speaking to reporters, prior to seeing off ceremony for Libyan Prime Minister al-Baghdadi al-Mahmoudi, he said the two sides exchanged views on current developments in the Middle East region and the entire world. He said that Tehran and Tripoli could adopt closer stand in dealing with regional developments. Davoudi said the two sides also reviewed latest developments in Iraq and called for forging unity between Muslims and avoiding factional disputes between the Shia and Sunni Muslims. He said withdrawal of occupiers is the only solution to Iraq's problem, adding that Tehran and Tripoli support the Iraqi territorial integrity. Deeply rooted ties between Iran and Libya along with all-out cooperation would leave significant impacts on regional and international cooperation, he said. Describing the current visit of the Libyan delegation to Iran as fruitful, he said the two sides are determined to broaden all-out ties. Iran and Libya could have constructive cooperation in Latin America and African continent relying on their capabilities and potentialities, Davoudi said. The Libyan premier arrived in Tehran Tuesday night for a two-day visit to Iran. Iran and Libya are scheduled to sign agreements on expansion of bilateral cooperation.

This is significant due to the mention of Libya as one of the nations that joins Russia, Turkey, and Iran in attacking Israel.

EU leaders hold tense summit Associated Press (June 19, 2007) - Poland and Britain threatened Thursday to exercise their vetoes to prevent plans to draft a watered-down EU treaty at a European Union Summit, with Warsaw demanding more voting rights and London refusing to cede some powers to Brussels. British Prime Minister Tony Blair said he would reject any treaty that is similar to the draft constitution French and Dutch voters rejected two years ago. Blair, attending his last international summit before stepping down next week after a decade in power, was discussing Britain's demands for the treaty with his successor, Treasury chief Gordon Brown, before heading to the two-day summit. In Warsaw, Polish Prime Minister Jaroslaw Kaczynski said the plan proposed by German Chancellor Angela Merkel, the summit host, remains a problem. "The situation still does not satisfy us," Kaczynski told the Polish Rzeczpospolita daily as his twin brother, President Lech Kaczynski, headed to Brussels. "We should do everything to push through our proposal or to obtain some other solution that would equally satisfy our ambitions," the Polish prime minister said. "Either we obtain that, or there will be a veto." The EU is considering a voting system that takes into account each country's population. But Kaczynski has said Poland wants compensation for the deaths it suffered during World War II, when Nazi Germany invaded. He argues that his country would be a much larger country now if not for the war. Luxembourg Prime Minister Jean-Claude Juncker dismissed such demands as absurd. "I don't find it appropriate that some Poles think it would be necessary to restrict Germany," Juncker said. "I can only warn against such irrational comments." Slovakia's Prime Minister Robert Fico warned against bringing up sensitive issues such as the voting system already the subject of drawn-out discussions. "If we allow the discussion on a change of the voting rules, it will open a whole range of other issues. If somebody will want to push through things above and over what has been agreed, we will not agree on anything," Fico said. more...

Now we know why the Panama Canal was given away Rumor Mill News (June 19, 2007) - Treason Abounds ~ Gov't Cabal Plots North American Union (NAU) Didn't you every wonder why Carter gave away the Panama Canal? In his article titled: Meet Robert Pastor: Father of the North American Union, Jerome Corsi charges that: "Robert Pastor intends to give away U.S. sovereignty to a newly forming North American Union exactly as he gave away the Panama Canal to Panama during Jimmy Carter's presidency."(99) There is absolutely no doubt about the clear and evident goal of the CFR as constantly expressed by their 'golden boy' Dr. Robert A. Pastor. He has been a consistent 'mouth piece' for their agenda for a minimum of eight years which includes the two years of study he made of the European Union before he wrote his 2001 'blueprint' for the NAU. He has been groomed, engaged, supported and showered with accolades from within and without the CFR's many tentacled operations, organizations and 'good ole boy' connections. Over the years he has had access and positions at the highest levels of our government. Of import was the fact that from "February 1975 to January 1977, Dr. Pastor was executive director of the Linowitz Commission on U.S./Latin American Relations. The Linowitz Commission supported President Carter's decision to negotiate a treaty to turn over the Panama Canal to Panama. Pastor left the Linowitz Commission to join [and then] become director of the Office of Latin American and Caribbean Affairs in the National Security Council in the Carter White House. There Pastor served as Carter's 'point man' in getting the Senate to narrowly vote for the Carter-Torrijos Treaty on April 18, 1978, despite staunch objections from conservative politicians including Ronald Reagan." Did you know that it "was CFR stalwarts Henry Kissinger, Ellsworth Bunker and Sol Linowitz who arranged (with Senate approval) to give away the U.S. canal in Panama, and to pay the Marxist dictatorship in that country $400 million to take it?" more...

Israel on the Brink, Again The Conservative Voice (June 19, 2007) - Last summer we saw a bungled war between Israel and Hezbollah that ended in a stalemate, which is not what Israel intended when it began. Israeli Prime Minister, Ehud Olmert sounded like he meant business when he declared that Hezbollah would be driven out of Lebanon. But Israel made the same mistake as we continue to make in Iraq. We are allowing too much concern for civilian casualties to interfere with winning the war. This is a mistake that neither Israel nor the US has learned to avoid, I'm sorry to say. To make things worse, Olmert gave the Gaza Strip to the Palestinians as a “peace offering.” He should have known better and we can only hope that he learned a lesson from it. Today, Gaza is now a threat to Israel’s very survival and any responsible leader should have seen this coming. Anything you give to Palestinians, they will take but instead of saying “thank you” they only demand more. Sound familiar? Things were kind of ok there for a while as long as President Mahmoud Abbas’s Fatah party was holding the guns and could control the militias. But the rivalry between Abbas and the democratically elected representatives of Hamas continued to heat up ever since the election in January, 2006. Hamas is not a political party. It is a terrorist organization which pretended to be a political party for the election. But let’s make one thing clear. Fatah party members are just as responsible for terrorism on Israel as is Hamas, if not more. It’s hard to know which is worse, but Fatah is considered a little more moderate and willing to work for peace. Hamas, on the other hand, has but one goal - the obliteration of Israel. Neither one is a friend to the US or Israel. In Gaza, over the past couple of weeks, fighting between Fatah and Hamas militias has reached the boiling point. Fatah soldiers have been killed or driven out of Gaza, leaving the entire region in the hands of Hamas. During the takeover, stockpiles of American weapons supplied to Fatah were seized by Hamas as were critical CIA records covering CIA activities in the Middle East and tactics to defeat the radicals. This Friday, Abbas dissolved the Palestinian government, kicked Hamas out of Parliament, and appointed a new Prime Minister who is currently without a cabinet. Fatah is the old Yasir Arafat P.L.O. party. Now the western media is naively asking “How is Hamas going to govern in Gaza when they don’t have access to government money and resources?” Do they really think Hamas took Gaza so they could “govern” it? Hamas’s only concern for governing consists of giving free stuff to the poor, just like the American Democrat Party does, for the purpose of holding their support. They have renamed Gaza to “Hamasistan”. Hamas doesn’t care about Gaza but it does put them in a valuable strategic position to attack Israel from the south. I’m sure they won’t have any trouble getting money from Iran and Syria which is where they get their weapons, except of course, the ones they just got from America. The media is calling this a “civil war” but I think it’s much more than that, just as Iraq is much more than a civil war. Now that they have Gaza, Hamas intends to take the West Bank as well which, will put them within shooting range of Tel Aviv. The Bush Administration is sending reinforcements to Fatah troops in the West Bank which so far have been holding off Hamas fighters. The question to be asked is should the US be taking sides and sending more arms to either Palestinian side? Considering what happened with them in Gaza, I don’t think so. A second shipment is under consideration. A little further north, Syrian troops have been gathering on the border in the Golan Heights and conducting war games to pass the time while they wait - for what? Just to their west in Lebanon, Hezbollah has recovered from last year’s war. They have rebuilt their tunnels along the northern Israeli border and stocked them with from 20,000 to 25,000 Russian made Kasam, Katusha and “tank buster” rockets. And all of this was done right under the watchful eyes of the UN peacekeepers planted there last year for the expressed purpose of preventing it. Is there really any question about whose side the UN is on? more...

This article is a good overview of the latest events that I believe will lead up to the Gog/Magog invasion. Read the whole article. In the bigger picture, the war between Islam and the West, I actually believe that the ultimate goal is for both sides to continue the war as long as possible so that the world is fed up with it and are more willing to accept a savior. That's the idea behind what Albert Pike wrote in 1871. The ultimate goal of that plan? "...Then everywhere, the citizens, obliged to defend themselves against the world minority of revolutionaries, will exterminate those destroyers of civilization, and the multitude, disillusioned with Christianity, whose deistic spirits will from that moment be without compass or direction, anxious for an ideal, but without knowing where to render its adoration, will receive the true light through the universal manifestation of the pure doctrine of Lucifer, brought finally out in the public view. This manifestation will result from the general reactionary movement which will follow the destruction of Christianity and atheism, both conquered and exterminated at the same time." Just a bunch of conspiracy mumbo-jumbo? We're dealing with an angel of light, existent for millennia, working for the destruction of the human race while influencing people through pride and selfishness to bring the world under his dominion. He is the master conspirator and he's way smarter than any of us. Keep watching!

Constitutional fudge Guardian Unlimited (June 19, 2007) - So far, Britain's stance on the German attempt to revise the EU treaties has been - from a British perspective - broadly reasonable. The common position of 10 Downing St, the Foreign Office and the Treasury is that the new treaty must not transfer powers from member-states to the EU. So at the EU summit in Berlin this week, Britain will ask for the right to opt out of sensitive areas where national vetoes are likely to be scrapped, such as justice and home affairs, and social security. And a way will be found to ensure that the Charter of Fundamental Rights does not apply to Britain. But on one particular subject, the new provisions for foreign policy, British policy is shifting, and in ways that could harm both Britain and the EU. The most significant parts of the EU's constitutional treaty that are likely to be carried over to the new amending treaty concern foreign policy. The EU's current arrangements for representing its viewpoint to the rest of the world - when it has a single viewpoint - are dysfunctional. The rotating presidency shifts from one member-state to another every six months, at the cost of continuity and credibility with rest of the world. And the diplomatic side of foreign policy, under the High Representative (now Javier Solana) in the Council of Ministers, is separated from the economic side, under the commissioner for external relations (now Benita Ferrero-Waldner). Solana and Ferrero-Waldner run two bureaucracies that work on the same problems (such as the Middle East, the Balkans, Russia and energy) but do so separately, leading to different priorities and, too often, mixed messages to the outside world. Because the huge spending programmes of the Commission are seldom well-aligned with the EU's political objectives, as set by the Council, Europe's influence in the world is less than it could and should be. During the negotiation of the constitutional treaty, the British and their allies sought to fix these problems by creating a new "foreign minister", based on the jobs now held by Solana and Ferrero-Waldner. This person would chair meetings of the foreign ministers, replacing the rotating presidency. He or she would also speak for the EU externally, instead of the current "troika" of the foreign minister of the presidency, the High Representative and the external relations commissioner. The foreign minister would be supported by an "external action service", consisting of the relevant officials from the Council of Ministers and the Commission, and supplemented by others from the member-states. The job of this service would be to provide advice, analysis and expertise to the foreign minister. However, at a dinner of EU foreign ministers in Brussels this week, Margaret Beckett, the foreign secretary, unveiled a new British policy. The first point she made was expected, and not unreasonable: the title of "foreign minister" should be changed, since it could imply that the incumbent had authority over national foreign ministers. But she then said that this person should not chair the meetings of foreign ministers. She would restore this function, which includes the ability to set the agenda and sum up at the end, to the rotating presidency. This is bizarre: Britain has pioneered efforts to reduce the role of the rotating presidency - often in the face of tough opposition from smaller countries, which remain attached to the institution. I have even heard William Hague, never a great EU-enthusiast, say that the rotating presidency was a system that needed reform. The NATO secretary-general chairs meetings of NATO foreign and defence ministers, but does not have any power over them. NATO would be much less effective if the secretary-general was replaced by a rotating presidency. Beckett then went further, saying that the British could not accept the external action service. Apparently the creation of such a service could be portrayed as "state-building" - despite the fact that a merger of the departments working for Solana and Ferrero-Waldner would not give the EU new powers vis-à-vis the member-states. It does not make sense for Britain to support the foreign minister (or whatever that person is called) but not an external action service. It would be like having a conductor without an orchestra - or rather, a conductor trying to conduct two separate orchestras at the same time. Most of the smaller member-states initially opposed the plan for an external action service, because they understand that bigger countries tend to dominate EU foreign policy machinery. They have seen that happen within the small staff that works for Solana (where the three key officials are Pierre de Boissieu, the Frenchman who runs the Council of Ministers secretariat; Robert Cooper, the British head of the directorate for external relations; and Helga Schmid, the German head of the policy unit). Britain, alongside the other large member-states, would be well-placed to influence the external action service. This is because Britain has a lot of highly skilled diplomats who would be well-qualified to take the top jobs. more...

I wonder how this will be resolved? It's recognized that consolidation is necessary, I wonder if some kind of security issue will make people drop the concern for national sovereignty in the face of terrorism? Peace and safety...

Only in the spirit can this be understood The Golden Report (June 19, 2007) - Many have asked why I’ve been silent for over a week about the insanity here in Israel. I am still shaking my head in total unbelief. Please keep in mind that what you are about to read is my very simplistic evaluation, knowing that there are many complications not mentioned here. First we pull out of Gaza under pressure from the Bush White House, knowing that it would become a terrorist stronghold. I like most Israelis sat in total unbelief and watched Ariel Sharon who we all had trusted completely taken over by George W. Bush. We watched Sharon go against his country and even his own party and use words that no other Prime Minister ever used, like occupation, and a Palestinian State to mentions a couple. We watched Sharon bring Olmert from the 33rd position in the Likud Party all the way to the position of his number one in the Government. It seems now with 20/20 hind sight that is how far back Sharon had to reach into the Likud ranks to find someone who would continue the planned destruction of Israel. And once again we sat still without protest like sheep being led to the slaughter once again. I have asked God many times if He has placed something in the minds of us Jews that allows us to be intelligent in many ways and yet stupid in others, or how a people who have suffered the horrors of the Holocaust can once again sit still and allow someone like Sharon and Olmert lead us into yet another Holocaust? But like you when I read the prophetic Word of God I find all my answers of what is to come and what will be. Then we sit still and allow Egypt (our peace partner) to open its border for tons of weapons moving into Gaza preparing Hamas for an all out war. To add insult to injury we allow these same Hamas terrorists to shell our cities and towns in the western Negev, causing death and destruction to our Jewish citizens and we do little to nothing about it, because Bush says we must show restraint to help his efforts in Iraq. Now Hamas has completely taken over the entire Gaza Strip turning it into another Taliban state living under Islamic Sharia Law. And as everyone knew would happen all the weapons supplied by the US to Abbas in Gaza are now in the hands of those who have sworn to destroy Israel and kill every Jew. And the weapons continue to flow into Gaza in preparation for all out war. The world is now being told that the good news is Abbas can now be dealt with in Judea and Samaria (West Bank) that he is a moderate terrorists. When it has only been a few weeks ago when he made the statement that both Hamas and Fatah should be turning their guns on Israel and not on each other. The fact that he is a Holocaust denier and sworn enemy of Israel seems to be forgotten. Or is it that everyone has forgotten that Fatah is a terrorist organization, and the PLO is headed by Abbas. That the Aksa Martyrs Brigade has killed more Jews with suicide bombers than Hamas has and it too is under the control of Abbas and Fatah. Or that the reason the average “Palestinian” voted for Hamas in their election was they were fed up with all the corruption in the Abbas government. That while the average “Palestinian” lived on a $1,000 or less a year, all of the Government officials lived in mansions and drove new high dollar Mercedes with money given by the US and EU. But now we hear Rice say we must now support Abbas and give him millions of dollars to rearm his terrorists with. Front Page Jerusalem Post today says, “US RESUMES FINANCIAL AND POLITICAL TIES WITH PA. It’s not enough that because of the Bush pressure on Sharon we now have a Taliban State on our southern borders that has sworn to destroy the State of Israel and kill every Jew, he wants to now finish the job and turn the heart land of Israel into a terrorist state as well, and his spin doctors are very quick to start their propaganda to the whole world. We now have Barak back as our Defense Minister with his eye squarely on the Prime Ministers job; we all know that he will give it all to the Arabs even the Old City and the Temple Mount. We now have Shimon Peres the epitome of total evil as our next President. While Netanyahu who so many believe to be the best man for the job of PM sits still with his mouth shut and seems to have no fight left in him. So to say things look bad here in Israel would be a very fair statement. As terrible as the above may seem it is pale in comparison to what Iran and Syria has in store for Israel. For months now Iran has been shipping convoys of weapons into Lebanon to rearm Hezbollah with longer range missiles under the ever watchful eye of the UN. Russia, North Korea and China have been arming Syria with Iranian financial backing. And Iran has hundreds of long range missile aimed at Israel of which anyone of them could be carrying a nuclear warhead purchased from any number of the old USSR countries. While Egypt sits unnoticed allowing Hamas in Gaza to rearm and they too have a very large and dangerous army thanks to the US. Egypt has a long memory and they want revenge for 1967 and 1973 wars. All this only means that if Israel just sits here and waits it will be destroyed or nearly destroyed and only God can then save her. But then that sounds Scriptural doesn’t it! But don’t think it is only Israel that will be destroyed, the United States is the main target and with Israel out of the way look out USA the terrorists cells in the US will begin their planned destruction of that country as well. In the meantime God is showing the US His displeasure of the back stabbing that the US is doing to Israel. Anyone with eyes to see can look around the US and see the hand of God working to prove His Word Gen. 12:3. But God has other plans for Israel, for this is where the Messiah left from and this will be the place of His return. There are many Scriptures to be fulfilled and all of them could happen very quickly.

Christians warned: Accept Islamic law WorldNetDaily (June 19, 2007) - Christians can continue living safely in the Gaza Strip only if they accept Islamic law, including a ban on alcohol and on women roaming publicly without proper head coverings, an Islamist militant leader in Gaza told WND in an exclusive interview. The militant leader said Christians in Gaza who engage in "missionary activity" will be "dealt with harshly." The threats come two days after a church and Christian school in Gaza was attacked following the seizure of power in the territory by the Hamas terror group. "I expect our Christian neighbors to understand the new Hamas rule means real changes. They must be ready for Islamic rule if they want to live in peace in Gaza," said Sheik Abu Saqer, leader of Jihadia Salafiya, an Islamic outreach movement that recently announced the opening of a "military wing" to enforce Muslim law in Gaza. Jihadia Salafiya is suspected of attacking a United Nations school in Gaza last month, after the school allowed boys and girls to participate in the same sporting event. One person was killed in that attack. "The situation has now changed 180 degrees in Gaza," said Abu Saqer, speaking from Gaza yesterday. "Jihadia Salafiya and other Islamic movements will ensure Christian schools and institutions show publicly what they are teaching to be sure they are not carrying out missionary activity. No more alcohol on the streets. All women, including non-Muslims, need to understand they must be covered at all times while in public," Abu Asqer told WND. "Also the activities of Internet cafes, pool halls and bars must be stopped," he said. "If it goes on, we'll attack these things very harshly." Abu Saqer accused the leadership of the Gaza Christian community of "proselytizing and trying to convert Muslims with funding from American evangelicals." "This missionary activity is endangering the entire Christian community in Gaza," he said. Abu Saqer claimed there was "no need" for the thousands of Christians in Gaza to maintain a large number of institutions in the territory. About 2,000 Christians live in the Gaza Strip, which has a population of over 1 million. Abu Saqer said Hamas "must work to impose an Islamic rule or it will lose the authority it has and the will of the people." His comments come after gunmen Sunday attacked Gaza's Latin Church and adjacent Rosary Sisters School, reportedly destroying crosses, bibles, pictures of Jesus and furniture and equipment. The attackers also stole a number of computers. The attack was the first targeting of Christian institutions since Hamas last week staged a coup against the rival Fatah party of Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas, seizing all Fatah positions and security compounds, essentially taking complete control of the Gaza Strip. more...

"Raw" Almonds Must be Heated or Treated with Toxic Chemical Bioneers (June 18, 2007) - The following is a news release from Cornucopia institute CORNUCOPIA, WI: Small-scale farmers, retailers, and consumers are outraged over a new federal regulation that will require all almonds grown in California to be sterilized with various “pasteurization” techniques. The rule, which the USDA quietly developed in response to outbreaks of Salmonella in 2001 and 2004, traced to raw almonds, mandates that all almonds undergo a sterilization process that includes chemical and/or high-temperature treatments. Although the final rule was just published in the Federal Register, The Cornucopia Institute, a Wisconsin-based farm policy research group, is asking the USDA to reopen the proceeding for public comment. Cornucopia contends that the rule was never effectively announced to the public, and that the reasoning behind both the necessity and safety of the sterilization processes should be questioned before the rule goes into effect this September. “The new rule is unwarranted and could have many harmful impacts," said Mark Kastel, senior farm policy analyst at Cornucopia. “The costs of the chemical and heat treatments, in addition to the costs of transporting and recording the new procedures, will be especially onerous on small-scale and organic farmers, and could force many out of business.” The only exemption to these new regulations will be organic “raw” almonds that will not be fumigated, but will undergo the steam-heat treatment, and small-scale growers who can sell truly raw almonds but only direct to the public from farm stands. Although foodborne illnesses have garnered headlines in recent years, including contamination of California-grown spinach and lettuce, raw produce and nuts are not inherently risky foods. Contamination occurs when livestock manure or fecal matter is inadvertently transferred to food through contaminated water, soil, or transportation and handling equipment. Raw foods can also be infected by poor employee sanitation either on the farm or in processing facilities. Glenn Anderson, a small-scale organic almond farmer in the central valley of California, worries that “This could be one more way for the big companies and the government to put us small farmers out of business.” more...

Report: Syria's Assad Linked to Katyusha Rocket Attack Jerusalem Post (June 18, 2007) - Syrian President Bashar Assad was linked to Sunday's Katyusha rocket attack on Kiryat Shmona, the Kuwaiti Al Siyasah newspaper reported on Monday. In an exclusive article, the paper claimed that Assad's motive was his anger at the Arab League foreign ministers' positions during last week's Cairo summit, particularly the stances of Egypt and Saudi Arabia, who called for an end to Syrian involvement in Lebanon. UNIFIL: Rocket fire breach of cease-fire According to the newspaper, Assad reacted harshly to the criticism, saying: "They will see how I will plough up Lebanon." A previously unknown Islamic terrorist group claimed responsibility on Monday for the Katyusha attack. The self-proclaimed group, "the Jihadi Badr Brigades - Lebanon branch," vowed in a statement to continue attacks on Israel. "We had promised our people Jihad (holy war). Here, we again strike the Zionists when a group from the Jihadi Badr Brigades struck the Zionists in the occupied Palestinian territory," the statement said. Al Siyasah did not say whether the Katyusha attack was perpetrated with Assad's silent agreement or after a specific instruction from the Syrian leader.

Bush's Trojan Horse For America NewsWithViews (June 18, 2007) - “Doing nothing is not a solution,” said President George W. Bush last Tuesday at his news conference. “We need to pass immigration reform now.” Since he ‘did nothing’ before or after 9/11 to stop terrorists by leaving our borders open and he hasn’t done anything for the past six years to stop illegal aliens, now he offers to enforce our laws with $4.4 billion from money paid by illegal aliens as fines to gain citizenship. That’s like saying police officers issuing speeding tickets will pay for the construction of the highway! “Gosh Aunt Bee, that makes about as much sense as a hound dog chasing a porcupine to see how many quills he can bite!” said Gomer. After ‘doing nothing’ for the past six years and clearly in violation of his oath of office, he arm twisted key senators to reintroduce his ‘Comprehensive Immigration Reform Bill’ that was defeated in the Senate on June 7, 2007 by a massive outpouring of Americans protests. Is Bush completely out his mind or will he go down in history as a cunning Trojan horse president? You can’t be sure. But, it’s a fact he’s playing citizens of this country as fools that will do nothing to stop his plans for dissolving the sovereignty of the United States. As shown for many years, Americans won’t react until it’s too late. What Bush proposes stands as a Trojan horse. Except, in this case, Bush drags the horse inside the walls of his own country. Just as he lacked understanding of his invasion of Iraq, he’s about to unleash this Trojan horse immigration scheme into the belly of America. It will prove deadly beyond anyone’s understanding. “The whole Senate bill is the horse,” said Dr. John Tanton, publisher of thesocialcontract.com “The Trojan it contains is section 413, which will be taken as authorizing the SPP (Security and Prosperity Partnership), which is mentioned by name, and behind and above this some form of an eventual North American Union.” Tanton said, “Here is what Robert Pastor, American University professor and chief architect of the NAU concept, writes in his book "Toward a North American Community" (Institute for International Economics ) on page 9: “Second, NAFTA is just a free trade area, whereas the European Union passed that threshold decades ago, on its way to becoming a customs union (with a common external tariff), a common market (with free movement of labor and capital), and finally an economic and monetary Union." “I am theorizing that Bush sees full blown North American Union on a continental scale as his ultimate legacy,” Tanton said. “One that through its "free movement of labor" provisions that will vitiate most immigration control legislation as it applies to North America, including the present bill. In its grand scope, the NAU will overshadow in the long run Bush’s blunder of the Iraq war. The Senate immigration bill is just the "carrier," the "stalking horse" for this larger concept.” If you look at the media running stories sympathetic to massive illegal alien migration, it’s a prep job for ‘soothing’ and ‘dumbing down’ American citizens until they won’t know what hit them. America’s middle class degrades before your eyes in 2007. Once our borders vanish, if you think 20 million illegal aliens haven’t done enough damage, you ain’t seen nothing compared to what the next 20 million will bring. As that Trojan horse with free movement of labor from south of the border ruptures our language, culture, economic and educational systems, social security, hospitals and prisons—we morph into another Mexico. In other words, the hound dog caught the porcupine’s full arsenal of quills. Once another 10 to 20 million of Mexico’s poor take America’s jobs, we create a whole new poor class. Who cheers this Trojan horse? Big business, Council on Foreign Relations, Tri-lateral Commission and the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, that’s who! more...

The further in time we go, the less I believe Bush's actions are separate from that of the New World Order's goals. For a long time, I didn't want to believe it, but I can't deny his own words. He's pushing for a New World Order, the goal of the elitists that are grooming the earth for the ultimate fulfillment of the one world government that will be run by the antichrist according to Bible prophecy. Stopping these events is not possible as the Bible is 100% accurate, but it is the evil forces of this world that are pushing events to their fulfillment, whether they realize it or not. Seeing the kind of evil and injustice in the world today really makes me want the Lord to return sooner rather than later to fix this mess we find ourselves in now. Absolute power corrupts absolutely and the governments of the world are filled with those holding the power over the people, creating laws and planning for complete control in the near future over the population. Eventually it will come down to a simple choice, worship the beast as God or die. Christ is our salvation and I urge you to develop a personal relationship with Him now if you haven't already. Open your eyes and research this yourself too, the world system is not being designed with your benefit in mind. It is designed to enslave you. Christ offers freedom, peace, love, and joy to them that love Him and obey Him.

Turkey: Ruling Islamic-Rooted Party Will Win Elections, Survey Shows ADN Kronos International (June 18, 2007) - Turkish prime minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan's Justice and Development Party (AKP) will score a clear victory in elections scheduled for 22 July, results of a poll published Monday suggest. However the survey conducted by the KONDA research agency for Raymond James Brokerage, also indicated the AKP total number of seats in parliament would fall to 307 from 352, still handing it a strong majority to form a government in the 550 seat house. The poll also indicated that the centre-left Republican People's Party (CHP) and the ultra nationalist Nationalist Movement Party (MHP) will win enough votes to to pass the 10 percent national treshold required to enter parliament. It also showed that some 40 candidates running as independents - and thus exempt from the 10 percent national threshold rule - stand a good chance of being elected. Many of these are ethnic Kurdish candidates, including several former members of the Democratic Soiceity Party (DTP) which has been banned by authorities who accused it of ties with Kurdish separatists. In a separate poll conducted by the Turkish magazine Ekonomist magazine amongst 375 top members of the business world, the AKP scored a preference of 32,6 percent, which again if translated in amount of votes in the election, would allow Erdogan's party to form a government alone. Among those polled by Ekonomist, around one quarter (25,4) percent wanted to see an all-AKP government, which they favoured for its perceived market friendly policies. Only 11.3 percent wanted to see a government led by the centre-left CHP, which has an anti-privatisation stance and is sceptical of the benefits the country may reap from joining the European Union.

Turkey’s military to military ties with Russia growing Turkish Weekly (June 18, 2007) - Military relations between Turkey and Russia have been growing as Turkish Air Forces Commander Gen. Faruk Cömert, in what is said to be the first visit by a Turkish Air Forces commander to this country since the establishment of diplomatic relations 87 years ago, returned home last Friday with the decision to set up a hot line between the two countries' air force commanders. Cömert was reciprocating the visit of the then Russian air force commander to Turkey in 2004. But both Turkish and Russian diplomatic and military sources ruled out that the growing trust between the militaries of both countries, reflected in the increased high-level military visits by top commanders, should be interpreted as part of an alleged growing tendency within the Turkish Armed Forces (TSK) to liken itself to the rather tough Russian military. "Russia does not think that Turkey's acting like the bad boy of NATO will serve Russia's interests. On the contrary, Moscow has been seeking good relations with NATO and a good NATO ally like Turkey will serve and currently serves the Russian interest. For example, it was through Turkish intervention that Russia participated in this year's European and NATO navy commanders' meeting, held once a year," said a Russian military analyst in Moscow to Today's Zaman in a telephone interview. A hot line contact already exists between the navy commanders of both countries with the primary goal of diffusing any tension that might erupt in the Black Sea as Moscow decided to join in late December of last year the Turkey-initiated Black Sea Harmony operation to monitor and deter all sorts of asymmetric threats including the smuggling of weapons of mass destruction and human trafficking. Russia appointed almost a month ago a lieutenant colonel as a liaison officer to the Karadeniz Ereğlisi, the Turkish headquarters for the Black Sea Harmony operation. Confidential communication systems required to ensure the success of the operations within Black Sea Harmony have already been coordinated between the navies of both countries. more...

Religious Education by Parents is "Child Abuse": Center for Inquiry Proposal LifeSite (June 18, 2007) - Religious education is a form of child abuse and violates the rights of children, contends a thesis to be considered by secular humanists at the Center for Inquiry's congress in Beijing this October. The Center for Inquiry, an organisation recently awarded special consultative status as an NGO at the United Nations (UN) will consider the proposals of Innaiah Narisetti, the chairman of the Center for Inquiry's India chapter, that portend the next stage in the assault on the rights of parents to educate their children. Nasiretti called the influence of religion a "severe shortcoming in the global campaign to protect children" and a contributor to child abuse saying, "In one form or another, all religions violate the rights of children." "Such abuse begins with the involuntary involvement of children in religious practices from the time they are born," says Narisetti. "All religions, through ritual, preaching, and religious texts, seek to bring children into day-to-day religious practice." "This gives holy books and scriptures, as well as those who teach them, an early grip on the developing minds of young people, leaving an indelible impression on them," said Narisetti, calling Sunday schools, madrassas, or Jewish or Hindu temples, centers of indoctrination for children. Nasiretti's proposal would reject the long-recognized inherent rights of parents to educate and provide for their children's religious instruction in favor of regulating children's exposure to religious influence by world governments abiding by the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child. "The time has come to debate the participation of children in religious institutions," continues Narisetti. "While some might see it as a matter better left to parents, the negative influence of religion and its subsequent contribution to child abuse from religious beliefs and practices requires us to ask whether organized religion is an institution that needs limits set on how early it should have access to children." The UN forum proposed by Narisetti would debate the "pros and cons" of religion on children and determine whether religion contributes to global child abuse. "The UN must then take a clear stand on the issue of the forced involvement of children in religious practices; it must speak up for the rights of children and not the automatic right of parents and societies to pass on religious beliefs, and it must reexamine whether an organization like the Vatican should belong to the UN," stated Narisetti. "Until this happens, millions of children worldwide will continue to be abused in the name of religion, and the efforts made by the UN will continue to address the symptoms but not the disease."

bok from fulfilledProphecy wrote this, "Read the NEA's resolutions to indoctrinate your children with communism, globalism and homosexuality at the youngest ages possible. Who is doing the indoctrinating? Maybe these parents are doing the INOCULATING." Ultimately, it's well known that the education of children affects their future beliefs.

Curious Triangle: Maurice Strong, Paul Martin & Javier Solana NewsWithViews (June 17, 2007) - In March of 1995, there was a near shooting war at high sea between Spain and Canada. Javier Solana was close to beginning his 6 month dual coinciding presidency terms as president of both the 10 nation Western European Union, a military federation and the EU itself. He had BIG plans that would definitely need Morocco's cooperation. Solana's larger agenda included the Barcelona Process. It would be opened by a "Barcelona Conference" scheduled to take place in Barcelona, Spain on November 27, 1995. It was to be a federation of 27 Mediterranean basin nations. He wanted it to: (1) Battle religious fundamentalism, worldwide; (2) Mutually advantageous trading terms over the area's resources leading to a Mediterranean Free Trade Zone by 2010; (3) Get the USA out of the Mediterranean and/or greatly reduce its presence there. Morocco was to pose a little problem and Solana was working to solve it. Historically there has been little or no love lost between Spain and Morocco. Solana could not put the Barcelona Process together and sell it to the Arab population countries without Moroccan support or at least lack of opposition. Morocco demanded concessions. Solana who enjoyed extraordinary powers for a mere cabinet official in Spain (he being the official spokesman for the country for many years) negotiated and gave Morocco what they sought. What they sought was (1) the ability to sell their produce in Europe. Although the concession deeply impacted the produce growing economy of the European Mediterranean and southern Atlantic countries of France, Greece, Portugal and Spain, this was granted. Next, Morocco demanded that Spanish fishermen stop fishing off her coastline. This was granted and the Spanish fishermen were ordered home. It was March of 1995. Six hundred unemployed Spanish fishing trawlers with their owners and crews were sitting angrily unemployed in the Spanish harbors. It was suggested to them that they could and should "go fish Canada." They went to Canada's Newfoundland waters and fished the cod, halibut, and turbot fishing stocks nearly to extinction. Canadian correspondents tell me the stocks have never fully recovered. Canada, of course, was not happy about this. I was told by former American ambassador to Canada, former Michigan governor James Blanchard, that the United States at that time assisted Canada in detecting that the Spaniards were fishing using illegal methods. Blanchard confided in me that electronic devices had been employed in making this determination. Nothing much was done, however, until a Spanish trawler, the Estai, crossed the boundary from international waters into Canadian waters. When this occurred, Canadian authorities boarded the ship and took both ship and crew into custody. At this point, Javier Solana leaped into action. He promptly dispatched three Spanish warships against Canada. Various scholars have worked in an intellectual vein to understand the event in terms of international law. Solana was most vocal about his differences with Canada, threatening the breaking of all diplomatic relations with her.[1] A political analysis would be much more relevant, but few have analyzed Dr. Solana and his broader motives. more...

BBC network admits it: We're biased toward left WorldNetDaily (June 17, 2007) - The BBC, the British Broadcasting Corporation, has acknowledged the network is biased toward the left, following a report commissioned by the company. A yearlong probe revealed the corporation especially partial in its treatment of single-issue politics such as climate change, poverty, race and religion, according to the London Times. "It concludes that the bias has extended across drama, comedy and entertainment, with the corporation pandering to politically motivated celebrities and trendy causes," the paper said. The report cites the danger of BBC programs being undermined by the liberal culture of its staff, who need to challenge their own assumptions more. "There is a tendency to 'group think' with too many staff inhabiting a shared space and comfort zone," says the report. It notes staff tend to mimic each other's common left-leaning values. A seminar on staff impartiality held last year is documented, with officials admitting they would broadcast images of the Bible being thrown away, but not the Koran for fear of offending Muslims. The report also warns that celebrities must not be pandered to and allowed to hijack the BBC schedule, according to the London Telegraph. It also offers 12 new principles for the corporation to adopt to safeguard objectivity, including: "Impartiality is no excuse for insipid programming. It allows room for fair-minded, evidence-based judgments by senior journalists and documentary-makers, and for controversial, passionate and polemical arguments by contributors and writers." A BBC spokeswoman said: "This report is about looking forward and how we are going to face the challenges of impartiality in the modern world." As WND reported in October, an internal BBC memo revealed senior figures admitted the national news agency was guilty of promoting left-wing views and anti-Christian sentiment. The admissions of bias were made at the impartiality summit. Most executives admitted the corporation's representation of homosexuals and ethnic minorities was unbalanced and disproportionate.


Rockets fired at Israel from Lebanon Associated Press (June 17, 2007) - Militants in Lebanon fired at least two rockets into Israel on Sunday, causing no casualties and little damage, but raising the possibility of a new flare-up on the volatile border less than a year after Israel's bloody monthlong war against Hezbollah. The Lebanese prime minister said the attack was geared at undermining the stability of Lebanon, while the U.N. condemned Sunday's incident as a serious violation to a cease-fire that ended the conflict last year. Hezbollah, a Lebanese militant group, denied involvement, and Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert it was mostly likely the work of "a small Palestinian movement." Israel's initial reaction was muted, but security officials were meeting to debate a response. "We are still clarifying the circumstances," Olmert said in New York, where he was meeting with U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon. "Lebanon has been very quiet in the last nine months and hopefully will continue to be so." The rockets were the first fired from Lebanon since last summer's war, when almost 4,000 rockets exploded in Israel. The latest rockets landed in the northern town of Kiryat Shemona, which was hard hit during that conflict. An official with Olmert indicated Israel would not hit back. "Israel will not succumb to this provocation but will monitor the situation carefully," the official said, requesting anonymity because of the sensitivity of the situation. Al-Manar, the Hezbollah TV station in Lebanon, broadcast a denial that Hezbollah was involved. more...

Police smash global pedophile ring Associated Press (June 17, 2007) - British police, aided by U.S. authorities, have smashed a global Internet pedophile ring that broadcast live-streamed videos of children being abused, investigating more than 700 suspects worldwide and rescuing 31 children in a 10-month probe, officials said Monday. Some 200 suspects are based in Britain, said the Child Exploitation and Online Protection Center, a government agency. Of the 31 children, some only a few months old, more than 15 were in Britain, the center said. British authorities would not give a breakdown of where the other suspects or children came from, but said more than half the suspects in Britain were already being prosecuted. The ring was traced to an Internet chat room called "Kids the Light of Our Lives" that featured images of children being subjected to horrific sexual abuse, including the streaming live videos. Authorities said they used surveillance tactics normally used against terrorism suspects and drug traffickers to infiltrate the pedophile ring at its highest level. Officials said the United States, Canada and Australia were Britain's main partners in the investigation, which involved agencies from 35 countries. The international investigation dated back to August 2006 until the ringleader's sentencing Monday. The international probe began after Canadian officials — conducting their own long-running pedophile investigation — tipped off authorities in London about a possible British link. A Canadian official said authorities there have arrested 24 Canadians and rescued seven Canadian children since late 2005. U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement joined the British-led operation in December. U.S. officials declined to comment because their investigation is continuing in at least 12 states. It was unclear whether any of the rescued children had been reported missing, but authorities said the investigation was not linked to the widely publicized disappearance of Madeleine McCann, a 4-year-old British girl who vanished nearly two months ago in southern Portugal. Toronto police conducted online surveillance along with British police, said Detective Sgt. Kim Scanlan of the Toronto police sex crimes unit, who confirmed the Canadian arrests and rescues of children that began before the British-led probe. "Every arrest we make we seize computers and information, so there are a number of ongoing investigations," Scanlan said. "There's just been great cooperation. It's a good day, but it's one day out of many." more...

DEBKAfile Exclusive: Hamas – and its Syrian and Iranian sponsors - capture priceless Palestinian Authority intelligence archives in Gaza putsch DEBKAfile (June 17, 2007) - The Fatah-led general intelligence and security services caved in too fast to shred, wipe or burn documents, computer disks and archives. The entire collection fell into Hamas' hands when they seized Palestinian Preventive Intelligence HQ at Tel Awa (henceforth Tel al-Islam) and the Palestinian General Intelligence center near Gaza port. DEBKAfile's intelligence sources say: Never before has a bonanza of Western intelligence secrets on this scale ever reached an implacably hostile Islamist terrorist gang. The US, British and Israeli intelligence services may have suffered their greatest debacle in the war on Islamist terror. It will take them many years to recover. Hamas has taken possession of hundreds of thousands of documents cataloguing the clandestine operations of Western intelligence services in the Middle East, including Saudi Arabia and the oil emirates. It is now the owner of complete archives of Palestinian undercover links with foreign intelligence services going back decades, with names of spies, political collaborators and double agents. The documentation covers the secret ties Palestinian intelligence maintained from the 1970s, when Yasser Arafat was based in Lebanon, with the Americans, the British, the French, the Israelis and many others. Most intelligence experts say Israel should have bombed the two buildings and destroyed their contents rather than letting them fall into the hands of an organization and country dedicated to its eclipse. For Hamas, this booty is priceless – and not only as the repository of bombs for planting under Mahmoud Abbas and his cohorts. The Palestinian group's Syrian and Iranian sponsors will pay a king's ransom for this unique collection of explosive secrets hidden by many a Western intelligence agency and government. Damascus and Tehran will be hugely empowered with the means to stay a jump ahead of American moves in the region and tools to sabotage US policies at any time. They will have a store of national secrets and compromising information to hold over the heads of Western leaders and officials, lists of undercover agents, and records of covert operations carried out by the Israeli Mossad, Shin Bet and Military Intelligence, CIA, British MI6 and other Western agencies. Iran, Syria and Hamas will know the names of politicians, including Israelis, who worked secretly with Palestinians and their shady deals. One intelligence expert said that the Gaza hoard left in enemy hands by Abbas and Mohammed Dahlan are the crown jewels compared with the Saddam Hussein's intelligence archives. In the Palestinian security service building, Hamas found computer hard disks covering years of undercover activity and a complete set of sophisticated wiretapping and surveillance equipment and sensors which the CIA and MI6 gave Mahmoud Abbas and his forces. It was all in perfect condition ready to switch on. After the Nazi regime was defeated at the end of World War II and Eastern Germany fell in the 1990s, there were officials willing to make a desperate effort to destroy or hide their intelligence treasure. Palestinian intelligence officers did not burn a single page.

Javier Solana - Antichrist? Prophec in the News (June 16, 2007) - This article examines the life of Javier Solana, the High Representative for the European Common, Foreign and Security Policy, and the Scriptures concerning the Antichrist, who will strengthen a peace agreement with Israel and the surrounding nations. Please note before reading. I am not saying Javier Solana is the Antichrist. All I am trying to do here is compare well known prophecies in the Scriptures concerning the Antichrist and the feats he will accomplish, with public knowledge of the man, Javier Solana. Another man could well fulfil all these prophecies. But the best we can do until "that Wicked" is finally revealed (2 Thessalonians 2:8) is to make an educated guess as much as the signs of the times allow. I don't know if the European Neighbourhood Policy is the "seven year covenant with many" or not, all we can do is wait and see.

Hamas bans masks for Gaza gunmen Herald Sun (June 16, 2007) - IN their first order since seizing control of the Gaza Strip, Hamas Islamists banned gunmen from wearing masks - unless they are shooting at Israel. The masks have become commonplace in the Gaza Strip during weeks of factional fighting between the ruling Hamas movement and President Mahmoud Abbas's secular Fatah faction. Both sides wore the masks to hide their identities. “A decision was taken last night to prevent (people from wearing) masks,” Khaled Abu Hilal, a spokesman for the Hamas-controlled Interior Ministry, said. Hamas made one exception, for militants carrying out cross-border attacks on Israel. “Wearing masks should only be near the borders and in fighting the Zionist enemy, not in the streets and near people's homes,” Abu Hilal said.

British body backs inter-species clones Reuters (June 16, 2007) - Making human-animal embryos for scientific experiments should be allowed because of the benefits to science and medicine, British experts said in a report released for Sunday. Such embryos should never, however, be implanted into either a woman or an animal, said the Academy of Medical Sciences. The combinations would include animal eggs and the nucleus, containing the genetic material, of a human being, or human embryos that carry the genetic material of an animal, the independent advisory body said. A cloning technique called somatic cell nuclear transfer, or SCNT for short, involves removing the nucleus from an egg cell and replacing it with the nucleus of a cell from the animal to be cloned -- perhaps a skin cell, for instance. Scientists have tried this using, for example, an egg cell from a cow and a human nucleus. There are no laws against it in either Britain or the United states and the independent Academy said it should remain legal. "Provided good laboratory practice is rigorously followed, research involving cytoplasmic hybrids or other inter-species embryos offers no significant safety risks over and above regular cell culture research," said Martin Bobrow of Britain's Wellcome Trust, who chaired the panel making the recommendations. more...


China Arming Terrorists The Washington Times (June 15, 2007) - New intelligence reveals China is covertly supplying large quantities of small arms and weapons to insurgents in Iraq and the Taliban militia in Afghanistan, through Iran. U.S. government appeals to China to check some of the arms shipments in advance were met with stonewalling by Beijing, which insisted it knew nothing about the shipments and asked for additional intelligence on the transfers. The ploy has been used in the past by China to hide its arms-proliferation activities from the United States, according to U.S. officials with access to the intelligence reports. Some arms were sent by aircraft directly from Chinese factories to Afghanistan and included large-caliber sniper rifles, millions of rounds of ammunition, rocket-propelled grenades and components for roadside bombs, as well as other small arms. The Washington Times reported June 5 that Chinese-made HN-5 anti-aircraft missiles were being used by the Taliban. According to the officials, the Iranians, in buying the arms, asked Chinese state-run suppliers to expedite the transfers and to remove serial numbers to prevent tracing their origin. China, for its part, offered to transport the weapons in order to prevent the weapons from being interdicted. The weapons were described as "late-model" arms that have not been seen in the field before and were not left over from Saddam Hussein's rule in Iraq. U.S. Army specialists suspect the weapons were transferred within the past three months. The Bush administration has been trying to hide or downplay the intelligence reports to protect its pro-business policies toward China, and to continue to claim that China is helping the United States in the war on terrorism. U.S. officials have openly criticized Iran for the arms transfers but so far there has been no mention that China is a main supplier. Defense Secretary Robert M. Gates said Wednesday that the flow of Iranian arms to Afghanistan is "fairly substantial" and that it is likely taking place with the help of the Iranian government. Defense officials are upset that Chinese weapons are being used to kill Americans. "Americans are being killed by Chinese-supplied weapons, with the full knowledge and understanding of Beijing where these weapons are going," one official said.

Solana defends EU military planning hub EU Observer (June 14, 2007) - As the new EU military operations centre conducts its first exercise with a virtual deployment of 2,000 European soldiers, the bloc's foreign policy chief Javier Solana played down criticism that the new body duplicates the role of NATO's headquarters. "It's a question of a good and serious division of labour, which is necessary with the number of crises we are trying to handle," Mr Solana told journalists on Wednesday (14 June), AP reported. He rejected the suggestion that the centre - set up earlier this year in Brussels to enable the bloc to plan and run an autonomous operation at the military strategic level - could be seen as competition undermining links with the North Atlantic pact. Such criticism has been recently voiced by UK conservative MEP Geoffrey Van Orden MEP, who argued that the military operations centre is a revival of the idea of a separate EU operational planning staff proposed by four states (France, Belgium, Germany and Luxembourg) in 2003 and rejected by the UK. "The reasons to oppose such a move [in 2003] were clear - the EU would be duplicating vital functions at the very heart of NATO, would weaken enthusiasm for NATO-led operations, and ultimately would displace the role of NATO's military planners," Mr van Orden said. The British deputy added that originally a small EU operational staff based at NATO has now turned into "the full works" in the form of the new body, with "the fig leaf that the EU is merely helping NATO and has only limited defence ambitions" increasingly exposed. But the argument has been rejected by the NATO chief himself, Jaap de Hoop Scheffer. At the security and defence agenda conference in Brussels last week, he said he thought the EU's operations centre was a good idea and had nothing against it, AP writes. The virtual training exercise taking place between 7 and 15 June is the EU's second military exercise within the framework of its security and defence policy but for the first time, its operational centre - consisting of military and civilian officials - has been activated. It is based on a scenario in a fictitious country (Alisia), where a clash between a government and a rebel group hampers the distribution of humanitarian aid to camps of internally displaced persons, with a UN mission cut off from people in need. The EU is asked to run an operation bridging the time needed for the UN to reorganise its personnel which requires the deployment of a force up to 2,000 people, including military staff. The exercise is being conducted by the EU's military operations centre in Brussels and in another EU building in Enkoping, Sweden.

Terrorist Calls During Interview with Aaron Klein IsraelNationalRadio (June 14, 2007) - In what may be a first in the history of news talk radio, conversation with Al Aksa Martyrs Brigades leader is broadcast live on air when he calls Aaron Klein to describe Gaza battle. (Aaron Klein is the Jerusalem Bureau Chief for WorldNetDaily.com) | Israel | Islam |

Aaron discusses the current happenings in Gaza currently including the CIA documents taken by Hamas as well as the weapons America gave to Fatah now in Hamas hands. Now America is thinking about giving more weapons to Fatah AGAIN! It is this kind of news that makes me believe that the plans of the New World Order are in play. It is becoming clear that there are plans that defy logic, yet are working toward a goal of creating more chaos. This is the plan of the NWO to bring people to a place of exhaustion so they will more easily fall for one who can bring a reprieve from the chaos.

Solar Tornadoes Thunderbolts.info (June 14, 2007) - As Fred Hoyle long ago pointed out; the Sun does not conform to the expected behavior of an internally heated ball of gas, simply radiating its energy into space. Instead, its behavior at every level is complex and baffling. Nowhere is it more mysterious than in a sunspot. Sunspots are strange blemishes on the face of the Sun that offer some of the strongest evidence against the Sun being powered internally. They are conventionally described as being a result of strong magnetic fields pinching off the convection of heat from inside the Sun before it can reach the surface. The electric star interpretation is that sunspots are breaks in the hot surface of the sun, through which we can get a glimpse of the underlying layers. To satisfy the standard theory, these deeper layers of the Sun should be hotter to drive the so-called vigorous convection. But they aren't. The dark center of the sunspot, or umbra, is 20% cooler than the rest of the surface of the Sun. The outer shadow of the sunspot, or penumbra, and the structure and behavior of the filaments that form the penumbra are also too complex to be explained by standard stellar theory. There is a temptation for plasma researchers to simply equate the penumbral filaments with gargantuan lightning bolts, but the features do not match all that well. A typical lightning flash lasts for 0.2 seconds and covers a distance of about 10 km. The penumbral filaments last for at least one hour and are of the order of 1000 km long. If we could scale a lightning bolt 100 times we might have a flash that lasted between 20 and 200 seconds and was 1000 km long. The lifetime is too short. Also, measurements of scars on lightning conductors show that the lightning channel is only about 5 mm wide. Scaling that by 100 times would have solar lightning channels far below the limit of telescopic resolution. However, there is another familiar form of atmospheric electric discharge that does scale appropriately and could explain the mysterious dark cores of penumbral filaments. It is the tornado! Tornadoes last for minutes and can have a diameter of the order of one kilometer. Scale those figures up 100 times and we match penumbral filaments very well. And if the circulating cylinder of plasma is radiating heat and light, as we see on the Sun, then the solar "tornado" will appear, side on, to have bright edges and a dark core (right image, above). more...


It’s Official: The Crash of the U.S. Economy has begun Global Research (June 14, 2007) - It’s official. Mark your calendars. The crash of the U.S. economy has begun. It was announced the morning of Wednesday, June 13, 2007, by economic writers Steven Pearlstein and Robert Samuelson in the pages of the Washington Post, one of the foremost house organs of the U.S. monetary elite. Pearlstein’s column was titled, “The Takeover Boom, About to Go Bust” and concerned the extraordinary amount of debt vs. operating profits of companies currently subject to leveraged buyouts. In language remarkably alarmist for the usually ultra-bland pages of the Post, Pearlstein wrote, “It is impossible to predict when the magic moment will be reached and everyone finally realizes that the prices being paid for these companies, and the debt taken on to support the acquisitions, are unsustainable. When that happens, it won't be pretty. Across the board, stock prices and company valuations will fall. Banks will announce painful write-offs, some hedge funds will close their doors, and private-equity funds will report disappointing returns. Some companies will be forced into bankruptcy or restructuring.” Further, “Falling stock prices will cause companies to reduce their hiring and capital spending while governments will be forced to raise taxes or reduce services, as revenue from capital gains taxes declines. And the combination of reduced wealth and higher interest rates will finally cause consumers to pull back on their debt-financed consumption. It happened after the junk-bond and savings-and-loan collapses of the late 1980s. It happened after the tech and telecom bust of the late '90s. And it will happen this time.” Samuelson’s column, “The End of Cheap Credit,” left the door slightly ajar in case the collapse is not quite so severe. He wrote of rising interest rates, “As the price of money increases, borrowing and the economy might weaken. The deep slump in housing could worsen. We could also discover that the long period of cheap credit has left a nasty residue.” Other writers with less prestigious platforms than the Post have been talking about an approaching financial bust for a couple of years. Among them has been economist Michael Hudson, author of an article on the housing bubble titled, “The New Road to Serfdom” in the May 2006 issue of Harper’s. Hudson has been speaking in interviews of a “break in the chain” of debt payments leading to a “long, slow economic crash,” with “asset deflation,” “mass defaults on mortgages,” and a “huge asset grab” by the rich who are able to protect their cash through money laundering and hedging with foreign currency bonds. Among those poised to profit from the crash is the Carlyle Group, the equity fund that includes the Bush family and other high-profile investors with insider government connections. A January 2007 memorandum to company managers from founding partner William E. Conway, Jr., recently appeared which stated that, when the current “liquidity environment”—i.e., cheap credit—ends, “the buying opportunity will be a once in a lifetime chance.” more...

I would recommend watching Money As Debt. Also, I recommend watching America: Freedom to Fascism. Also other interesting online videos here. Things are not as they appear, and the closer we get to the end, the more we're going to see the collapse of sovereign nations which will be incorporated into the global community. What we are taught about the world we live in is only in part. Focus on certain aspects with ignorance to others is the tool that is leading the sheeple to believe certain things and accept certain things as reality. Do you wonder why it seems that the leadership is acting in irresponsible ways regarding the economy, etc? I believe there is a goal behind it all, and it plays into the New World Order and the globalist agenda. Bible prophecy places the end of the current happenings in a world controlled by the man of sin, the antichrist.

EU Constitution 'Can Be Simple' BBC News (June 14, 2007) - An EU summit next week may agree to re-name the European constitution and re-package it as a simple treaty, a report by German officials suggests. But the report, seen by the BBC, says this "major concession" will only be made if the "substance" of the original deal is preserved. Germany will be chairing the summit in Brussels, which may agree the outline of a treaty replacing the constitution. BBC Europe editor Mark Mardell says the report poses some problems for the UK. He says several areas would be difficult for British leaders to sell to the British public without a referendum. The constitution was signed by EU member states in 2004, but was rejected by French and Dutch voters in referendums in 2005. British, French and Dutch politicians have argued that the treaty must be simplified to prevent the need for further referendums. It has not been general practice, in most member states, to put routine amendments of EU treaties to a public vote. The German proposals are also likely to be unwelcome in Poland, because they say nothing about changing the voting system at meetings of the 27 governments. Poland has threatened to block the new constitution, unless its demands are met, but is coming under intense pressure to drop its objections. French President Nicolas Sarkozy held talks with his Polish counterpart, Lech Kaczynski, on Thursday, and Mr Kaczynski is due to travel to Germany for a meeting with Chancellor Angela Merkel on Saturday. "We think that during these days of extreme importance, June 21 and 22, that we will reach a compromise and all member states will come away from the summit fairly satisfied," Polish President Lech Kaczynski told a news conference after his meeting with Mr Sarkozy. more...

Suit to decide workplace 'hate speech' The Washington Times (June 11, 2007) - The words "natural family," "marriage" and "union of a man and a woman" can be punished as "hate speech" in government workplaces, according to a lawsuit that is being appealed to the U.S. Supreme Court. Briefs for Good News Employee Association vs. Hicks, which were filed June 5 with the nation's highest court, lists D.C. school board President Robert C. Bobb as one of two plaintiffs. The case originated five years ago in Oakland, Calif., during his tenure there as city manager. The dispute began in January 2003, when the two Oakland employees created a subgroup at their workplace called the "Good News Employee Association." It was partly in response to a group of homosexual employees having formed their own group 10 months before and being given access to the city e-mail system. One e-mail, dated Oct. 11, 2002, invited city employees to participate in "National Coming-Out Day." When several employees asked whether such a posting was legitimate city business, they got an e-mail from City Council member Danny Wan, reminding them that a "celebration of the gay/lesbian culture and movement" was part of the city's role to "celebrate diversity." In response, the Good News employees posted an introductory flier on the employee bulletin board Jan. 3. It said: "Preserve Our Workplace With Integrity: Good News Employee Association is a forum for people of faith to express their views on the contemporary issues of the day." It said it opposed "all views which seek to redefine the natural family and marriage," which it defined as "a union of a man and a woman, according to California state law." Anyone who wanted to help preserve "integrity in the workplace" was invited to contact the two employees: Regina Rederford and Robin Christy. A lesbian co-worker, Judith Jennings, spotted the flier and complained to the city attorney's office that it made her feel "targeted" and "excluded," according to a deposition. The flier was removed by a supervisor because it violated the city's anti-discrimination rules. A U.S. District Court for Northern California ruling said the words "natural family" and "marriage" had "anti-homosexual import." However, Miss Rederford was told she could announce the group's presence on the city's e-mail system if she removed "verbiage that could be offensive to gay people." more...

Driver ticketed for using biofuel The News & Observer (June 11, 2007) - Bob Teixeira decided it was time to take a stand against U.S. dependence on foreign oil. So last fall the Charlotte musician and guitar instructor spent $1,200 to convert his 1981 diesel Mercedes to run on vegetable oil. He bought soybean oil in 5-gallon jugs at Costco, spending about 30 percent more than diesel would cost. His reward, from a state that heavily promotes alternative fuels: a $1,000 fine last month for not paying motor fuel taxes. He has been told to expect another $1,000 fine from the federal government. To legally use veggie oil, state officials told him, he would have to first post a $2,500 bond. Teixeira is one of a growing number of fuel-it-yourselfers -- backyard brewers who recycle restaurant grease or make moonshine for their car tanks. They do it to save money, reduce pollution or thumb their noses at oil sheiks. They're also caught in a web of little-known state laws that can stifle energy independence. State Sen. Stan Bingham, R-Denton, is known around Raleigh for his diesel Volkswagen fueled by used soybean oil. The car sports a "Goodbye, OPEC" sign. "If somebody was going to go to this much trouble to drive around in a car that uses soybean oil, they ought to be exempt" from state taxes, he said. The state Department of Revenue, which fined Teixeira, has asked legislators to waive the $2,500 bond for small fuel users. The department also told Teixeira, after the Observer asked about his case this week, that it will compromise on his fine. But officials say they'll keep pursuing taxes on all fuels used in highway vehicles. With its 29.9-cent a gallon gas tax, the state collects $1.2 billion each year to pay for road construction. "With the high cost of fuel right now, the department does recognize that a lot of people are looking for relief," said Reggie Little, assistant director of the motor fuel taxes division. "We're not here to hurt the small guy, we're just trying to make sure that the playing field is level." more...

Secret New Plan For EU Super-State Daily Express (June 15, 2007) - Tony Blair wants to hand the European Union radical new powers in his last act as Prime Minister, it emerged today. The Prime Minister has welcomed controversial plans to bring back the troubled EU constitution by the back door - totally bypassing the need for public referendums on sweeping new powers for Brussels. German chancellor Angela Merkel has suggested ditching the name "constitution" from the title and instead calling it an "amending treaty" - to avoid having to seek the approval of voters. French and Dutch voters rejected the original plan - which would hand Brussels the power to represent individual countries at the UN and change national laws - two years ago. Britain's voting rights would be reduced by a third under the scheme and our hard-won veto on European directives would be torn up. Britain could also lose the right to impose quotas on immigration. Shadow Foreign Secretary William Hague said: "If Tony Blair thinks he can hoodwink the British people by smuggling in the rejected EU constitution under another name, he had better think again. "He underestimates the British people. They will see right through any shabby stitch-up. "If the Labour Government sign up to a new treaty that takes powers from Britain and hands them over to the EU, the British people must have the final say in a referendum." The Germans believe "as much of the substance of the constitution as possible" should be kept, renamed and put into law. more...

President Bush's New World Order Legacy Accuracy in Media (June 1, 2007) - With his record of defending American borders and national sovereignty in ruins, President Bush has decided to conclude his second term in office by making common cause with those who think America's future lies in appeasing the "international community." He apparently wants his "legacy" to be that he cared for the rest of the world. Watch your wallets - and your freedom. The latest phase of this "legacy building" campaign began with a plea on Wednesday for more money to fight AIDS. This provided a photo opportunity for the President to pose with a black child. So far, about $200 billion has been spent by the federal government on AIDS, without any cure or vaccine being developed. But it looks "compassionate" to throw money at the problem. Tens of billions are now being spent, some of it provided by agreements brokered through Bill Clinton's foundation, to fight AIDS with potentially toxic and lethal drugs. On the eve of the G-8 meeting of major industrialized nations in Germany, Bush gave a global warming speech on Thursday at an event hosted by the U.S. Global Leadership Campaign. This is a coalition of business and non-government organizations that includes the pro-world government Citizens for Global Solutions, Physicians for Social Responsibility, Ted Turner's U.N. Foundation, Planned Parenthood, the American Friends Service Committee, the Alliance for a Global Community, and the United Nations Association. It looks like Bush is abandoning what's left of his conservative base before they abandon him. Bush told the group, "This is a fine organization and it's an important organization. It's rallying businesses and non-governmental organizations and faith-based and community and civic organizations across our country to advance a noble cause, ensuring that the United States leads the world in spreading hope and opportunity." Another part of this "legacy building" is his decision to seek ratification of the U.N. Convention on the Law of the Sea (UNCLOS), a dangerous document that transfers control of the oceans and much of the land area of the world as well to a U.N. bureaucracy. It finances its activities with a global tax. The pact is endorsed by some of the same groups and individuals involved in the Global Leadership Campaign. UNCLOS charges American corporations a "fee" for exploiting ocean resources for the benefit of America and threatens these same corporations with global climate change litigation before an international court if they "pollute" the oceans from anywhere on the face of the earth. U.S. Navy support for UNCLOS masks the sharp decline in U.S. Naval forces. The number of U.S. ships has declined under Bush to 276, from a high of 594 under President Reagan, who rejected UNCLOS. The Bush budget projects their further decline to 210. The American Shipbuilding Association says that, if present trends continue, the U.S. Naval Fleet will decline to 180 ships by 2024. more...

The Secret Nazis Covet the Temple Mount Ezine @rticles - "Even before the end of this war, I revealed to you the plans for a NAZI UNDERGROUND MOVEMENT, to go underground as a SECRET organization the very moment they lost the war - to lay low...then come forth when least expected, RESTORE GERMANY TO POWER, and go on to finally accomplish their aims in a WORLD WAR III" - The Plain Truth, Sept. 1948. The Philadelphia Trumpet magazine (Feb. 2000) reminded its international audience that Herbert W. Armstrong wrote those prophetic words long before they were confirmed by Reuters Arthur Spiegelman, who wrote on May 10, 1996: "Realizing they were losing the war in 1944, Nazi leaders met top German industrialists to plan a secret post-war international network to restore them to power, according to a newly declassified U.S. intelligence document. The document...says an SS general and a representative of the German armaments ministry told such companies as Krupp and Rohling that they must be prepared to finance the Nazi Party...when it went underground." Ella Steinberg, executive director of the World Jewish Congress stated: "Now that the Nazi secret plan has been confirmed, the central question is whether it has been carried out." Need we wonder? Considering German hegemony throughout Europe is practically a done deal (with the Vatican's blessing), aren't Herbert W. Armstrong's warnings about the final revival of the "Holy Roman Empire" being fulfilled before our very eyes? Only the deaf, dumb and blind could deny that the Germans have thoroughly carried out their plans! But what is the German-Catholic kingdom without the crown of Jerusalem? "Woe to Ariel, Ariel, the city where David dwelt!" (Isaiah 29:1). The Vatican covets Mount Zion and the Temple Mount and Europe won't quit until it occupies the eternal capital of Israel! Both the Arabs and the Jews had better beware any European moves into the Middle East. David Ben-Ariel, a Christian-Zionist writer and author of Beyond Babylon: Europe's Rise and Fall, shares a special focus on the Middle East, reflected in hard-hitting articles that help others improve their understanding of that troubled region.

Woe to Ariel! (Jerusalem to suffer EU occupation) Ezine @rticles - Isaiah 29:1 Woe to Ariel, to Ariel, the city where David dwelt! Carl Sandburg, an American writer warned: "If America forgets where she came from...if she listens to the deniers and mockers, then will begin the rot and dissolution." The same principle applies to our Jewish brethren in Israel. The most merciful God of Jacob-Israel resurrected the nation of Israel from the graveyard of history and offered us a new opportunity to fulfill our unique calling to become a model nation, a kingdom of priests, a light to all nations, based upon the Law and the Prophets. Yet secular Jews, Hellenist Jews, UNJews, have divorced themselves from the Bible and have sought to make Israel just like all the other nations. And the corrupt Chief Rabbinate and blind religious leaders have woefully neglected (and forfeited by default) Judaism's most holy site: the Temple Mount. Despite the faithlessness of many of Israel's leaders, the Great God of the Universe liberated areas of Judea and Samaria and restored Judaism's holiest site (supposedly) - the Temple Mount - into Jewish hands. Did Israel immediately invite the God of history to return with our exiles (now making aliyah) by building the Third Temple? Did they honor the God of our fathers by creating an Embassy for the Eternal upon the Temple Mount? No! Instead Israelis despised their most sacred inheritance, the crown jewel of Jerusalem, and permitted militant Muslims to continue their abominable occupation. The foreign foxes terrorize faithful Jews and Christian Zionists who attempt to worship upon the Temple Mount and illegally refuse to let them pray or read the Bible. Israel has failed to uphold religious rights for non-Muslims (that are trampled daily) and has failed to guarantee "freedom of access." The biblical solution is to build the "House of Prayer for All Peoples" spoken of by the Prophets. Queen Victoria said: "I think it very unwise to give up what we hold," referring to territories of the British-Israelite empire. Judah has been "very unwise" to surrender holy land to the enemies of God and Israel in the name of a lying peace. The accursed and treacherous Oslo accords, like a murderous cancer, continue to eat away at the very foundations of the Jewish state and the Jews have only themselves to blame. Does someone have to be a prophet to recognize prophetic trends and to be grieved about them? Or to perceive that divine judgment is surely coming upon our beloved nations? Can't we just be like righteous King Josiah who HEARD AND BELIEVED the inspired words of the PROPHETS? (2 Chron. 34:15-33). He took God's "ancient" warning seriously and then did everything he could to avert national disaster! God respected him for it. Yet the American, British and Jewish peoples today despise those who dare come forth, teaching and preaching the Word of God, encouraging repentance to spare our people from the unprecedented "Time of Jacob's Trouble," "the Great Tribulation" (Jer. 30:7, Matt. 24:21). At least, when they're temporarily crushed under the heels of a German-led Europe, when the Jewish Quarter is made Judenrein and the Temple Mount seized and occupied by Vatican forces that are intent on ripping the heart out of Israel for their pagan purposes (Dan. 11:45, Zech. 14:2), they will remember that they had been warned by a loving God, and hopefully will then have a change of heart and attitude that will hasten the process of redemption and welcome home the Messiah whom Two Witnesses will announce to the cities of Judah and proclaim to the world (Zech. 12:10).

World Peace Religion Lambastes U.N. Report of Alliance of Civilizations TransWorldNews (November 13, 2006) - The Alliance of Civilizations was formed 1 year ago by Koffi Annan to ease tensions between Western and Muslim societies. The Secretary Generalof the United Nations appointed a group of world leaders called the High-level Group to prepare a report which was released today, November 13, 2006. The U.N. Report states, “Notwithstanding the critical state of relations between Muslim and Western societies described in the report, the High-level group firmly asserts that there is nothing inevitable or insurmountable in these conditions. Indeed because the causes of current tensions are political – and not religious or cultural – they are also solvable.” The report concludes with a list of recommendations. Here is the response of Karen Fish of The Temple of Love – The World Peace Religion: “To put it mildly, I am stunned. Jesus Christ was the Jewish born Rabbi and Messiah of Christianity and Islam. Jesus said to the leaders of his day, ‘Blind guides! You blind fools! Hypocrites! You snakes, you brood of vipers! How can you escape being sentenced to burn alive on the fire altars of Gehenna?!’ (Matt. 23). It is clear that our world leaders today are leading us all into the real live fire of Nuclear World War 3, the Apocalypse, the sudden violent extinction of life on Earth forever. It boggles the mind that the top minds on Earth have concluded that the problems between the Jews, Muslims and Christians do not have a religious cause. Surely they cannot believe that. They must be so frightened to offend anyone involved in these religions that they have washed these religions’ hands of all blame, even if it leads us all into the Apocalypse. The Temple of Love – The World Peace Religion has a 10 page website. On these 10 pages we tie every religion together with their common threads. Then we shine the light on our differences, with Biblical citations, and resolve them once and for all through the mouth of God of Mount Sinai aka Jesus Christ, God the Father, The Holy Spirit, Allah, Yehovah, Elohim, etc. through every Biblical Prophet in the Old Testament, New Testament and Koran. Here is our letter to the authors of the report:

‘Dear Alliance of Civilizations, Only The Temple of Love - The World Peace Religion makes peace among and unites Christianity Islam Judaism and Everyone else and the Countries they all live in as the first step towards World Peace. Only The Temple of Love - The World Peace Religion stands between mankind and the Apocalypse. Search "unites Christianity Islam Judaism". There are 1000 results all ours. Please promote The Temple of Love - The World Peace Religion by placing our link on every website, in every newspaper, on every TV station, in every classroom, and to all of your contacts in every Country on Earth by forwarding to them this email. Yours truly, John Fish’ We also recommend that today every Church, every Mosque, and every Synagogue replace their sign with “The Temple of Love – The World Peace Religion.” This is the exit strategy of our God of Mount Sinai from the Middle East Crisis, Iraq, and the coming Apocalypse. It is time that we use our own minds, our own common sense, to save ourselves from the onrushing flames of Armageddon. Staying the course and listening to reports like the report of the United Nations Alliance of Civilizations will soon result in the end of life on Earth forever, at our hands. Nuclear World War 3 will be the ultimate murder suicide. Run for your lives and the lives of your children to The Temple of Love – The World Peace Religion while there is still time. Many people believe that we have already passed the point of no return. Let’s prove them wrong. The continued existence of life on Earth is in our hands. Don’t drop the crystal ball onto the concrete floor like the Alliance of Civilizations just did.”
| Apostasy |

The Temple of Love concept is exactly what the one world religion movement is about. They think that by dropping what the religions actually say, we can prevent the inevitable fulfillment of prophecy. Many people are scared because they see it coming and don’t want it. As they will see however, what will happen must be. It is the result of the sins of man catching up with them. There always has been consequences to doing things apart from God. He gave us rules because it is the best way to live in peace and love. Going counter to and ignoring them results in the opposite of peace and love. It is important to obey God’s ways to attain His salvation from our sins. We all fall short, but grace is unmerited favor given to us by faith in Christ. There is only one reality, one Truth. Ignoring that to create an all-inclusive belief system that removes the central nature of Christ to eternal salvation is a direct attack on the fundamental foundation of what the Bible says is reality in favor of a fable. Many people have itching ears for a man-made faith, believing that by accepting all beliefs, all conflict is removed. Ultimately, this seed of an idea destroys the fabric of the original in the mind of the believer. Ultimately, when the antichrist rises with signs and lying wonders, they will more easily wonder at the beast because in order to accept the all-inclusive doctrine, the Bible cannot be part of the research as it directly counters the all-inclusive beliefs. The Bible is what tells us our future and those without an understanding of what is coming will be more susceptible to the coming deceptions that are part of the future. God didn’t leave us in the dark about the future, but it requires taking Him at His Word, the Bible. And not just the little pieces we like, but the whole thing in its entirety. Less and less people today are willing to accept that, hence the falling away from the Truth, apostasy.
