What Is 'Palestine'?
By David Solway | Wednesday, December 31, 2008
The Palestinian narrative has also been promoted by the ignorance or duplicity of Western intellectuals, which helped fertilize the Palestinian identity in order to counter the historical thrust of Zionism, accomplishing its purpose by a cynical rewriting of history. the Reverend James Parkes has pointed out in Whose Land: A History of the Peoples of Palestine, “from the Arab conquest until the British Mandate, [Palestine] was a portion of some larger unit, whether Arab, Mamluk, or Turkish; and its people were never conscious of themselves as a national unit.” There was, he reiterates, “no such thing historically as a ‘Palestinian Arab,’ and there was no feeling of unity among ‘the Arabs’ of this newly defined area” until modern times. The fact is that “the Balfour Declaration for the first time established a unit called Palestine on the political map” while recognizing “that there existed already a historic Jewish right.”

Unbelievable ignorance and anti-Israel bias being displayed over at a Canadian national newspaper website today, in an article about Israel's actions against Hamas. Seems most Canadians on that site are pro-Hamas. Unbelievable how brainwashed Canadians already are, likely much like the Europeans...

2:29pm ET update: comments were closed and deleted presumably because it's such a 'controversial subject'. The whitewashing continues!

'Pastor' Khameini clutching his AK-47

FM spokesman in Tehran: Iran begins preparing operations against Israel
On Monday, Dec. 29, Day 3 of Israel's Gaza operation, the spokesman said Iran had embarked on preparations for operations against Israel in line with the directives laid down by supreme ruler Ayatollah Ali Khameini in his speech Sunday.

Interesting (in an 'Ezekiel 38' kinda way) headlines from DRUDGE REPORT:
Iran orders Muslims to defend Palestinians...
Russia asks Israel to end attacks...

Posted this before but it's so good - here's the reason for living!

Christians should be watching this very closely. I wonder what percentage of evangelical churches will even talk about Israel today?

Death toll over 280 Sunday - Israel's artillery deployed

Is this the spark that starts the fire?

Israel assault on Hamas kills more than 200
Gaza Strip – Israeli warplanes rained more than 100 tons of bombs on security installations in Hamas-ruled Gaza on Saturday, killing at least 230 people in one of the bloodiest days in decades of the mideast conflict...

In Damascus, Syria, Hamas' top leader, Khaled Mashaal, called on Palestinians to rekindle their fight against
Israel. "This is the time for a third uprising," he said.

Isaiah 27:
12 Yet the time will come when the Lord will gather them together like handpicked grain. One by one he will gather them—from the Euphrates River in the east to the Brook of Egypt in the west. 13 In that day the great trumpet will sound. Many who were dying in exile in Assyria and Egypt will return to Jerusalem to worship the Lord on his holy mountain.

An extremely sad life testament - Financier found dead after losses in Madoff alleged scheme
If you're only living for money what will you do when it's gone? Praise God he's given us a much higher purpose for living made possible through his son. Jesus said we must deny ourselves ("turn from our selfish ways") and follow him. What a lesson that is. A life of self-denial runs completely opposite to what the world tries to 'hammer' into our brains day after day. How tragically ironic that the shopping frenzy at Christmas is completely opposite to what Jesus taught. Satan must be laughing hysterically at what Jesus' birthday has become - I'm pretty sure Jesus isn't.

The current economic meltdown is a perfect time to reflect and re-adjust life priorities., whether it's forced on you or not. God is telling our self-indulgent generation to wake up and see his purpose for our lives. Not many more warnings will be given because the world is looking more like Sodom and Gomorrah every day.

Are we listening?

Mark 8: 34 Then, calling the crowd to join his disciples, he said, “If any of you wants to be my follower, you must turn from your selfish ways, take up your cross, and follow me. 35 If you try to hang on to your life, you will lose it. But if you give up your life for my sake and for the sake of the Good News, you will save it. 36 And what do you benefit if you gain the whole world but lose your own soul? 37 Is anything worth more than your soul? 38 If anyone is ashamed of me and my message in these adulterous and sinful days, the Son of Man will be ashamed of that person when he returns in the glory of his Father with the holy angels.”

Galatians 2: 20 My old self has been crucified with Christ. It is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me. So I live in this earthly body by trusting in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.

US: Russia's S-300 missile sale to Iran marks Israel's decision point
In Moscow, a "military-diplomatic source" said Monday the S-300 systems are being packed up and prepared for shipment to Iran: "S-300 air defense systems," he added, "are expected to be delivered from the defense ministry's warehouses." The latter statement indicates that the missiles going to Iran are coming out of Russia's own emergency stores and not waiting to come off production lines.

"Muslims who fight against the occupation of their lands are 'Mujahadeen' and are blessed by Allah. And any Muslim who fights against Israel and dies is a martyr and will be granted paradise."

"There is no greater oppressor on this earth then [sic] the Zionists, who murder little children for sport."

Rogers: The Elite are turning a recession into a depression
Veteran investor Jim Rogers warns that the policies of central banks and politicians are turning what would have been a recession into a new great depression, and that Barack Obama’s taxation agenda will only make the problem much worse.

Prep'ing for war: Iran deploys troops, ballistic missiles to strategic Eritrea
[Excellent vantage point on Red Sea shipping]

REALLY bad advice!!!

DEBKAfile's military sources disclose the S-300 deliveries began two weeks ago.

Their installation, coinciding with the return home of members of Iranian air defense officers from training in Russia, means that air or missile attacks on Iranian sites will henceforth be extremely difficult and carry a high price.

Here's some "great" financial news for the future. Basically the message is: "it's too late".

The political process is SO broken. Can't blame the Ishmaelites for rejecting Pres. Bush's dream of spreading western-style democracy in the Middle East.

Pakistan claims Indian aircraft violated its air space
DEBKA-Net-Weekly 374 reported on Nov. 28 that an attack on Mumbai was scheduled for September to be carried out by 30 terrorists. This figure was confirmed after the rampage which left 174 dead, including nine of the terrorists. Twenty are still missing.

If there's another 20 terrorists inside India, what's going to happen next between these nuclear neighbors?

Revelation 11:2, a parallel prophecy also fulfilled
Ellis Skolfield, from the book: The False Prophet


1967 Israel finally regains Jerusalem

But exclude the outer court; do not measure it, because it has been given to the Gentiles. They will trample on the holy city for 42 months.

Revelation 11:2

I have appointed thee each day for a year" - Ezekiel 4:6:
42 months x 30.44 days per month on average = 1278.48 years

A solar year (which we are on) is 365.24 days. Divide 365.24 by 12 months in the year = 30.44 days on average per month.

In 688 AD the Dome of the Rock was largely built and the Muslims were in control of Jerusalem. In 1967 the Israeli's finally regained control of Jerusalem after 2500 years. So the Gentiles (Muslims) controlled Jerusalem and the Holy Mount for 1278.48 years as this prophecy predicted.

1967 - 1278.48 = 688.52

A side note: The Muslims probably thought they were building their monstrosity to their false prophet Muhammad and their false pagan god on the spot where the Holy of Holies was. When actually they built it about 300 feet south of the House of The Lord. God had already measured out a place for it (to keep it away from Him), which is called the Court of the Gentiles. (now we can understand the meaning of Revelation 11:2)

The rock under this cupola known as the Dome of Tablets is probably where the real holy of holies/God's footstool on earth is

Because of our sins we were exiled from our country and banished from our land. We cannot go up as pilgrims to worship Thee, to perform our duties in Thy chosen house, the great and Holy Temple which was called by Thy name, on account of the hand that was let loose on Thy sanctuary. May it be Thy will, Lord our God and God of our fathers, merciful King, in Thy abundant love again to have mercy on us and on Thy sanctuary; rebuild it speedily and magnify its glory. (The Jewish Prayer Book)

As I read the following article, I thought: "Will this world get a chance to see this phenomenon again?" Of course, many generations in the past must have thought they were in the generation of Christ's return, but with all that is happening in the world today (post-1948 and 1967), this old world can't have long to live.

Prepare to live in the eternal, I say.

Look up tonight for a spectacular treat in the sky

The next closest encounter with a full moon this large will not be until November 14, 2016.

"The folly of interpreters has been to foretell times and things by this prophecy [Revelation], as if God designed to make them prophets. By this rashness they have not only exposed themselves, but brought the prophecy also into contempt. The design of God was much otherwise. He gave this and the prophecies of the Old Testament, not to gratify men's curiosities by enabling them to foreknow things, but that after they were fulfilled they might be interpreted by the event, and his own providence, not the interpreters', be then manifested thereby to the world. For the event of things predicted many ages before will then be a convincing argument that the world is governed by Providence."

- Sir Isaac Newton

We don't know exactly when He's coming, but we know approximately...

"When you see these things happening" - Luke 21:29-31

The 'fig tree' is symbolic of Israel.
Israel has been reassembled back into her land.
The end of the age is next!

Israel's enemies are closing in around Jerusalem

Joel 3:
1 “At the time of those events,” says the Lord, when I restore the prosperity of Judah and Jerusalem [done!], 2 I will gather the armies of the world into the valley of Jehoshaphat. There I will judge them for harming my people, my special possession, for scattering my people among the nations, and for dividing up my land. [comment mine]

Heard the following news in Western media passed off as "sectarian" violence, which is ridiculous. What is happening here is a religious war of Islam on all "infidels", with "people of the book" (Christians and Jews) at the top of their death list. Mumbai wasn't an accident - they're hunting Westerners and Israeli's, while our leaders are trying to form new friendships with the LBL beast of Islam.

Worshiping the Beast and His Image

Revelation 14: 9 Then a third angel followed them, shouting, “Anyone who worships the beast and his statue or who accepts his mark on the forehead or on the hand 10 must drink the wine of God’s anger. It has been poured full strength into God’s cup of wrath. And they will be tormented with fire and burning sulfur in the presence of the holy angels and the Lamb. 11 The smoke of their torment will rise forever and ever, and they will have no relief day or night, for they have worshiped the beast and his statue and have accepted the mark of his name.”

the seal of the beast, versus:

Ephesians 4: 30 And do not grieve the Holy Spirit of God, by whom you were sealed for the day of redemption.

Revelation 9: 3 Then locusts came from the smoke and descended on the earth, and they were given power to sting like scorpions. 4 They were told not to harm the grass or plants or trees, but only the people who did not have the seal of God on their foreheads.

Jesus said to him, "I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me." -- John 14:6 (NKJV)

"For the Father judges no one, but has committed all judgment to the Son, that all should honor the Son just as they honor the Father. He who does not honor the Son does not honor the Father who sent Him." -- John 5:22,23 (NKJV)

"And this is eternal life, that they may know You, the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom You have sent." -- John 17:3 (NKJV)

Pakistani Nuclear Scientist: 'None Of India's Cities Can Remain Safe From Our Missiles'; 'Our Missile System… Can Be Fired in Only 10 Minutes – They Are On the Launchers'

DEBKAfile - Covert marine operation uncovers Syria's return to plutonium production
Iran and North Korea are frantically helping Syria's clandestine nuclear program.

A somewhat humorous take on Iran's Photoshop abilities. A serious threat nonetheless.

Economic sanctions are a bust and a showdown with a nuclear Iran is inevitable

  • German trade with Iran is up 8 percent this year.
  • On Nov. 27, the German-Iranian Chamber of Commerce (GICC) held a conference in Hamburg, titled "Iran Sanctions: Practical Consequence for German Firms." The goal of the meeting was to encourage more German businesses to trade with Iran, and it included workshops on how to obtain German government credit guarantees for trade with the Islamic republic.

Murder in Mumbai yields new terrorist threat: "Jihadi infantry"

Indian security sources confirmed the use of AK-47s, small arms, grenade, etc. The operation, involved a dozen Jihadis deployed in several positions, after landing by sea.

20,000 uniformed troops inside the United States by 2011
The U.S. military expects to have 20,000 uniformed troops inside the United States by 2011 trained to help state and local officials respond to a nuclear terrorist attack or other domestic catastrophe, according to Pentagon officials.

Iran deploys 60-ship armada for massive war readiness maneuver
DEBKAfile's Iranian sources report that the exercise is part of Tehran's preparations for a US and/or Israeli attack on its nuclear installations and Revolutionary Guards bases which its political, military and intelligence strategists are convinced is on the way ahead of Barak Obama's January 21 inauguration as US president.

Tell me something I didn't know -

Bio-weapons or nuclear attack likely within 5 years
The United States can expect a terrorist attack using nuclear or more likely biological weapons before 2013, reports a bipartisan commission in a study being briefed Tuesday to Vice President-elect Joe Biden.

Don't expect 'business as usual' on this crumbling earth. Don't build your life on sand.

Psalm 92:
22 But the Lord is my fortress;
my God is the mighty rock where I hide.
23 God will turn the sins of evil people back on them.
He will destroy them for their sins.
The Lord our God will destroy them.

The Bible hasn't changed, but hardly anyone in the modern church warns the wicked.

Doctors shocked at hostages' torture
The other doctor, who had also conducted the post-mortem of the victims, said: "Of all the bodies, the Israeli victims bore the maximum torture marks. It was clear that they were killed on the 26th itself. It was obvious that they were tied up and tortured before they were killed. It was so bad that I do not want to go over the details even in my head again," he said.

Satan is at his last stand and is trying his best to wipe out Israel (the apple of God's eye) through Islam. But it won't work. Satan and Islam's end has long been determined.

Revelation 20: 10 Then the devil, who had deceived them, was thrown into the fiery lake of burning sulfur, joining the beast and the false prophet. There they will be tormented day and night forever and ever.

High time for Laodiceans to wake up and see what the Spirit is saying to the churches about Islam through prophesy. Here's a website defending Islam and '666' as the number of Allah, who reportedly is "most gracious, most merciful."

Revelation 2: 11 “He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches. He who overcomes shall not be hurt by the second death.”
