Kabbalist Blesses Jones: Now’s the Time to Find Holy Lost Ark (May 20, 2005) - An unnamed Kabbalist has granted blessing to famed archeologist Dr. Vendyl Jones to uncover the Holy Ark of the Covenant. Jones plans to excavate the Lost Ark by the Tisha B’Av Fast this summer. The famed archaeologist, the inspiration for the “Indiana Jones” movie series, has spent most of his life searching for the Ark of the Covenant. The ark was the resting place of the Ten Commandments, given to the Jewish people at Mount Sinai, and was hidden just before the destruction of the First Temple. The Talmud says the Ark is hidden in a secret passage under the Temple Mount. Jones says that the tunnel actually continues 18 miles southward, and that the Ark was brought through the tunnel to its current resting place in the Judean Desert. Throughout the many years of his quest, Jones has been in close contact and under the tutelage of numerous Rabbis and Kabbalists. Extremely knowledgeable in Torah, Talmud and Kabbalah sources dealing with Holy Temple issues, Jones has now received permission from both known and secret Kabbalists to finally uncover the lost ark. Dr. Jones, who divides his time between Texas and Israel, has been here since March 9th ready to finally reveal the Ark. However, he has been waiting for both permission from the mysterious Kabbalist and for project funding to come through.

South Korea Makes Strides in Human Cloning (May 20, 2005) - South Korean scientists blazed a trail in stem cell research that matches the country’s global leadership in high tech sectors and promises to bring life-saving benefits to sufferers of incurable diseases. A team of experts led by Seoul National University professor Woo Suk Hwang said they produced stem cells by cloning human embryos using human eggs donated from volunteers and skin cells from patients. The research marked a step forward in efforts to fight difficult diseases by cloning “therapeutic” stem cells and transplanting them into humans to replace cells ravaged by illnesses such as Parkinson’s and diabetes. In the study published by the journal Science, the group said there would be little risk of rejection by patients’ immune systems because any potential therapy using this process would use cloned cells that share their own DNA makeup. “This process opens the possibility of rejection-free stem cell treatment of many incurable or difficult diseases and injuries,” Hwang told journalists.

Senate Committee to Review Controversial Patriot Act Legislation in Secret; Draft Legislation Hidden from Public Link Lost (May 20, 2005) - The Senate Intelligence Committee announced today that it is rushing forward with a markup of Patriot Act reauthorization legislation Thursday, but that the session will be behind closed doors. Some of the most extreme parts of the Patriot Act are set to sunset, or expire, at the end of this year unless Congress reauthorizes them. When lawmakers passed the Patriot Act just 45 days after 9/11, they included these sunsets because they knew that some provisions shouldn’t be made permanent. The committee will be reviewing legislation involving the sunsets and other key parts of the Patriot Act that impact civil liberties. Members of Congress have until the end of the year to review and modify the Patriot Act, but some lawmakers hope to steamroll the entire process through Congress in the next few weeks. This closed-door markup is an indication that some in Congress are trying to rush through legislation, and keep the public in the dark. The following can be attributed to Anthony D. Romero, ACLU Executive Director: “One reason that people across the political spectrum are concerned about the Patriot Act is that so much of it is shrouded in secrecy. Many provisions are implemented secretly, and the government has kept secret key information on how it is being used. Now, lawmakers are trying to keep legislation to reauthorize the Patriot Act secret as well. “Nearly 400 communities, included seven states, have passed resolutions calling on lawmakers to bring the Patriot Act in line with the Constitution. Instead of addressing these legitimate concerns, and reviewing the act in daylight, some in Congress would rather hide behind closed doors away from public scrutiny. The Patriot Act has been the subject of heated debates in recent months—in Congress, in the media, and in households around the country. There is no good reason for the mark-up and vote on this public law to be kept secret from the public.”

Scientists: Sumatra Quake Longest Ever Recorded (May 20, 2005) - Dramatic new data from the December 26, 2004, Sumatran-Andaman earthquake that generated deadly tsunamis show the event created the longest fault rupture and the longest duration of faulting ever observed, according to three reports by an international group of seismologists published Thursday in the journal “Science.” “Normally, a small earthquake might last less than a second; a moderate sized earthquake might last a few seconds. This earthquake lasted between 500 and 600 seconds (at least 10 minutes),” said Charles Ammon, associate professor of geosciences at Penn State University.

Rare Hurricane Hits El Salvador Coast (May 20, 2005) - Hurricane Adrian slammed into El Salvador today, unleashing torrential rains in an area prone to devastating floods and forcing some 14,000 people to seek higher ground. The center of the hurricane hit a stretch of coast south of the capital San Salvador, according to the U.S. National Hurricane Center, which reported maximum sustained winds of almost 75 mph as Adrian made landfall. It was the first recorded Pacific hurricane to strike El Salvador. The hurricane was expected to weaken and continue moving northeast across El Salvador at about 9 mph before cutting across Honduras.

An Occult Translation of the Roswell Event: Count down to 2012 (May 20, 2005) - No UFO conversation goes very long without mention of the Roswell event. It is the pre-eminent story of extraterrestrial folklore. Paradoxically, some say that what occurred near Roswell NM in July 1947 will never be entirely known. Others, like our own government, claim it was a simple case of misidentification... no mystery. But there is a mystery...and there is good reason to believe the truth was covered up.

On July 8th 1947 the headlines of Roswell Daily Record reported:

RAAF Captures Flying Saucer On Ranch in Roswell Region. The intelligence office of the 509th Bombardment group at Roswell Army Field announced at noon today, that the field has come into possession of a flying saucer.

The next day the Roswell headlines featured a retraction by the RAAF:

An examination by the army revealed last night that mysterious objects found on a lonely New Mexico ranch was a harmless high-altitude weather balloon - not a grounded flying disk.

The contrast between these Army statements aroused suspicion immediately. How could Army “intelligence” confuse a balloon with a flying saucer? Witnesses in Roswell had actually observed the disc flying overhead. Their story was featured with the Army’s “Flying saucer” announcement in the July 8th, Roswell Daily Record:

Mr. and Mrs. Dan Wilmot...were sitting on their porch at 105 South Penn. last Wednesday night at about ten o'clock when a large glowing object zoomed out of the sky from the southeast, going in a northwesterly direction at a high rate of speed...The object came into view from the southeast and disappeared over the treetops in the general vicinity of six mile hill... It was in sight less then a minute, perhaps 40 or 50 seconds. Wilmot said that it appeared to him to be about 1,500 feet high and going fast. He estimated between 400 and 500 miles per hour...In appearance it looked oval in shape like two inverted saucers, faced mouth to mouth, or like two old type washbowls placed, together in the same fashion....

Ritual Abuse: The Attack on Our Children (May 20, 2005) - On June 25, 1992, Dr. Corydon Hammond gave a lecture entitled “Hypnosis in MPD: Ritual Abuse” to an audience of professionals at the Fourth Annual Eastern Regional Conference on Abuse and Multiple Personality in Alexandria, Virginia. Dr. Hammond, a psychologist, has lectured, written and received many awards related to the field of psychology—including a 1998 Presidential Award for Advancements to Clinical Hypnosis. Dr. Hammond’s main subject was the ritual abuse of children. He stated that in as many as two-thirds of ritual abuse cases, the victims had been subjected to highly developed and uniform technology of mind control, suggesting that there is a large network of practitioners conducting such atrocities on children in the U.S. Often, according to Hammond, these will be “bloodline people,” that is, people who are involved in cultic practices such as Satanism or in American intelligence agency programs.

The Military Defeat of Imperial USA — Commentaryy (May 20, 2005) - Since it is a fact most of the world would like to take the USA down a notch, there are only two ways to do this. One is economic and the other is military. The economic attack is already well under way. The fiat dollar collapse is an orchestrated attempt by foreign powers to drain the gasoline out of the US Imperial tank. We will be forced to withdraw from Iraq like the Romans were forced to withdraw from England. A seven trillion dollar debt doesn’t leave much room for Imperial pretensions. Over the last few months we have seen a collapse in the overseas financing needed to maintain Imperial America. This is intentional and is designed to force us to cease our mindless overseas adventures. We are not getting the message. The message will be sent more directly over the next few years. War with both China and Russia is inevitable by 2020. The reason I know this is so is both the Russians and Chinese have openly told us. In addition, they are both taking concrete steps to do it. The USA finds itself in the situation of Europe in the 1930’s: they read Hitler’s Mien Kampf, they just didn't believe he meant it. When the USA is attacked, no one in America can claim both Russia and China didn’t give ample warning of their intentions. Who do you think is behind Al Qaida anyway? Are we Americans so naive to think the Islamic terror offensive isn’t the start of a long range, broad based military operation to destroy the USA? We are; we will pay for it down the line in a few years. We will not be invaded next year, but five, ten and fifteen years away we will.

Recent events in Middle East hopefully ‘new start’ on road to peace, Security Council told (May 20, 2005) - Recent events in the Middle East should hopefully be remembered as “a new start on the road towards peace” rather than a “slide back into conflict and violent confrontation,” the senior political affairs officer at the United Nations told the Security Council today. With violence between Israelis and Palestinians having declined since a meeting between their two leaders in Egypt earlier in the year, “We hope that in the near future Prime Minister (Ariel) Sharon and President (Mahmoud) Abbas will continue the dialogue they began in Sharm el-Sheikh,” Under-Secretary-General for Political Affairs Kieran Prendergast said during his monthly briefing on the Middle East.

Human Embryo Cloned for First Time in Britain (May 20, 2005) - Scientists at Newcastle University, the first in Britain to obtain a license to carry out therapeutic cloning for stem cell research, said they had successfully produced a blastocyst -- a tiny, early-stage embryo consisting of a hollow ball of cells -- cloned from a human cell using nuclear transfer.

His mission: Seek and ye shall find oil (May 19, 2005) - John Brown believes he’ll find oil in central Israel, although he has no scientific data or particular experience in the drilling business on which to base that. The Dallas native is a relative novice in the energy industry. He says he’ll find oil because his reading of the Bible tells him it’s right here — under Maanit, an inland plain northeast of Tel Aviv, where he began drilling last month. “God sent me for one purpose: to help Israel with oil,” says Brown, a born-again Christian, as he leafs through his Bible. Brown says he received divine inspiration, starting his company, Zion Oil, to help Israel become energy-independent. “I believe God talked to me.” Zion’s geologist, Stephen Pierce, and drilling manager, Stacy Cude, have decades of oil experience and plenty of discoveries under their belts for major producers such as Shell and Superior, now part of ExxonMobil. Like their boss, they also are born-again Christians, but they say there is science to support their faith in the project. The skeptics “are going to have a hard time once the oil comes,” Brown predicts.

“EXTERMINATION OF JEWS AND SUBJUGATION OF CHRISTIANS…” (May 13, 2005) - The final stage of history will be the subjugation of all Christian countries under Islam and the extermination of every single Jew - this according to the Palestinian Authority (PA) religious leader during Friday’s sermon. The Jews are so evil, Ibrahim Mudayris teaches, that they cannot be subjugated like the Christian countries, and therefore the only solution awaiting them is death - literally the extermination of every Jew. In his words: “The day will come and we shall rule America [and] Britain; we shall rule the entire world, except the Jews.”

In the sermon, Ibrahim Mudayris reiterated many of the often-repeated PA justifications for the anticipated genocide, including the following hate messages:

  1. The Jews have inherently evil character traits that Muhammad warned Muslims about in the Koran.
  2. The Jews have been the source of conflict throughout all of history: “The Jews are a virus similar to AIDS, from which the entire world is suffering.”
  3. The persecution of Jews throughout history is presented as natural responses of self-defense by numerous countries against the evil of the Jews.
    Britain, France, Portugal, Czarist Russia, Nazi Germany, all persecuted and/or expelled Jews - as acts of self-defense and revenge.
  4. Zionism was created by Britain in order solve its Jewish problem by sending them to Israel.
  5. God has predetermined that the Jewish problem will be solved with the extermination of the Jews.
  6. God has predetermined that the Christian-Islam interactions will end with today's Christian countries under Islam.
  7. Israel has no right to exist and will be destroyed.

Ibrahim Mudayris, Friday Sermon, May 13, 2005
Koran: “Indeed you will find that of all mankind, those with the strongest hatred of the believers are the Jews and the pagans” al-Maada : 82 [the Table]

Mudayris: “There is no god but Allah, Who warned His Prophet and Beloved [Muhammad] of the Jews; who murdered their prophets, and falsified their Bible; who were corrupt and corrupted throughout their existence; [and] violated their treaties and agreements. Hundreds of verses about them came down [from the heavens] and appeared in the Koran. And in them it is told of the corruption of their qualities and their evil intentions…Had Allah not protected your Beloved, he would have been a victim of the Jews’ treachery; he would have been one of the thousands of prophets that were murdered by the Jews…

This [May 15, the day the PA marks Israel’s Independence] is the hardest day of remembrance for the Palestinian people…because with the loss of Palestine, the Arab nation was lost, and with the establishment of the false State of Israel, the whole Muslim nation was lost.

With the establishment of the State of Israel, the entire Muslim nation was lost because Israel is a cancer that spread in the body of the Islamic nation, because the Jews are a virus similar to AIDS, from which the entire world is suffering. This has been proven in history. Read the history! I don’t want you to read the Koran, because the Koran is clear and permanent and we all believe it, but for those who do not believe the Koran, we say to them: read the history...You’ll find that Jews [are] behind every conflict on Earth. The suffering of nations? The Jews are behind it! Ask Britain! What did it do to the Jews at the beginning of the sixth century? What did they do to the Jews? [They] chased them down them, made them suffer, and prevented them from entering for more than 300 consecutive years...Ask France what it did to the Jews! They made them suffer, chased them down and burned their Talmud, for the conflicts that they [i.e. Jews] tried to ignite in France in the period of Louis XI. Ask Portugal what it did to the Jews! Ask Czarist Russia, who hosted the Jews, and they plotted to murder the Czar! And they were massacred again and again. Don’t ask Germany what it did to the Jews, since the Jews are the ones who provoked the Nazis so the world would go to war against it. On the day the Jews provoked—through the Zionist movement—the nations of the world to fight Germany economically and to boycott German goods; on the day that they incited Russia, Britain, France and Italy, the anger of the Germans toward the Jews increased significantly and what happened, happened at that time so that [Holocaust] Remembrance Day is commemorated by the Jews to this day.

For they are doing worse things than what was done to them in the era of the Nazi war. It is likely some of them were killed, and it is likely some of them were burned, but they’re exaggerating the description [of the Holocaust] in order to gain [the attention of] world media, and world sympathy.

The worst criminal acts in history were perpetrated upon the Jews, but they are not worse than those perpetrated upon the inhabitants of Palestine. What was done to the Jews is a crime, but isn't what they are doing in Palestine a crime…?

The Jews did not have a national home on this earth because they are liars! They are liars if they say that the establishment of a national home in Palestine appears in their faith. They were never interested in and never considered the establishment of a national home in Palestine itself. They were interested in a national home in any place at all, any place at all... Britain is the one that promised them the establishment of a national home on the land of Palestine. Why? Because Britain was disgusted by the Jewish presence there, in Britain, and wanted to be relieved of them, and therefore promised to establish a national home in Palestine…The right [of the Jews] stems from their power, but our right - or our power - stems from our right. The rights of the Jews stem from their power, and power is transient…

Know, O Muslims, that the Jews in their conferences, led by the cursed Herzl [father of modern-day Zionism] did not set Palestine as their goal for the establishment of a national home...Herzl admitted, and said: 'We could have accepted the establishment of a national home in Mozambique.’ Mozambique, which Portugal wanted to give them - also to get rid of them…Liar - anyone who says that the Jews have any rights to this land aside - besides being occupiers. And they will disappear!...

The Jews have the power of a balloon; it isn’t real. Why? Because the Jews drew their power from the Muslims’ weakness - our weakness. They drew their power from our weakness...If we wished to measure power, then [we’d find that] power is the power of character, the power of determination and faith is the real power. And the Jews have nothing of that power. Because Allah, who created them, is the one who confirmed that to us...Allah is the one who says that the Jews have the character of cowards; they fear Muslims more then they fear Allah...The Palestinian nation is the strongest on earth. Look at all the civilizations! Look at all the states! Look at all the civilizations and forces and empires. Where did Great Britain disappear? Where did the Czar’s Russia disappear? Where did France, which almost ruled the world, disappear? Where did Nazi Germany, which massacred millions and ruled the earth, disappear? Where did all those forces disappear? In Allah’s will, he will get rid of the USA like he got rid of them. He caused Russia to disappear within a day, and he is the one who can remove the USA and bring it down, and so he shall do it, in Allah’s will...

We [Muslims] have ruled the world [in the past] and a day will come, by Allah, and we shall rule the world [again]. The day will come and we shall rule America [and] Britain; we shall rule the entire world, except the Jews. The Jews will not live under our rule agreeably permanently, since they have been treacherous in nature throughout history. A day will come when all shall rest from the Jews, even the tree and the stone, which have suffered from them. Listen to your Beloved [Muhammad], who tells you about the most dire end awaiting the Jews. The tree and the stone want the Muslim to bring every Jew to his end. You all know the Hadith." [PA TV, May 13, 2005]

Mudayris here is referring to following Hadith [Muslim tradition based on the sayings of Muhammad]: “The Hour [Resurrection] will not come until the Muslims make war against the Jews and kill them, and until a Jew hiding behind a rock and tree, and the rock and tree will say: ‘Muslim, servant of Allah, there is a Jew behind me, come and kill him!’” He explains that the fulfillment of the often-preached Hadith means the extermination of every last Jew is Allah’s will and is, thus, inevitable.

The American Response to the Global Day of Prayer  (May 18, 2005) - The American response to the first-ever Global Day of Prayer (GDOP) far exceeded expectations, at least according to the planners of GDOP events. The American response to the first Global Day of Prayer (GDOP) exceeded expectations, said GDOP event planners. “It was far beyond what we could ask or imagine,” said Dr. Robert Bakke, producer of the American arm of GDOP. According to organizers, the original U.S. goal was to have four large cities and two dozen small communities participate and act as models for “year one.” However, by Tuesday, 182 communities - spanning 38 states and 1 overseas military command - reported holding events. Participants at each GDOP event prayed for God’s mercy and forgiveness, repenting of sins and calling on the power of the Holy Spirit to dawn on this globe in a transformation and spiritual awakening.
