DEBKAfile - US speeds up its own and Gulf allies' preparations for clash with Iran:
"The Obama administration took the unusual step Saturday night, Jan. 30, of leaking word to major US media that the United States, Saudi Arabia and Gulf allies - the United Arab Emirates, Kuwait and Bahrain - have accelerated the deployment of new defences against possible Iranian missile attacks. They are preparing for Iran, or its surrogate Hizb'allah, to hit back for a possible US or strikes on Tehran's nuclear facilities."
Fort Hood Heroes Ignored in State of the Union Address:
"Obama did not mention the November 5, 2009 Fort Hood murders. Astonishingly, he did not introduce the two brave heroes who confronted and took down Nidal Hasan, as he brought down 13 soldiers and one unborn child. At least, going back to President Reagan, the First Lady's guests were always introduced. So they invited Officers Mark Todd and Kimberly Munley there for what...the pleasure of being in the same room with 'The One', and being graced with a seat next to the First Lady?"

Joel Rosenberg's Blog - World leader acknowledges fulfillment of Biblical prophecy (finally some good sense out there!)
NETANYAHU AT AUSCHWITZ SAYS PROPHECIES OF EZEKIEL 37 HAVE BEEN FULFILLED:
"He declared to the people of Europe and the world that the prophecies of Ezekiel 37 have been fulfilled."
The question for all Israelis and all people everywhere is now this: If the prophecies of Ezekiel 37 have come to pass in our lifetime, isn’t it remotely possible that the prophecies of Ezekiel 38-39 will come true in our lifetime as well?
32 “Now learn a lesson from the fig tree . When its branches bud and its leaves begin to sprout [Israel regathered as per Ezekiel 37], you know that summer is near. 33 In the same way, when you see all these things, you can know his return is very near, right at the door. 34 I tell you the truth, this generation will not pass from the scene until all these things take place.
President Obama's First Year: Keeping Faith in the White House - ABC News:
"If church attendance is one measure of a man's faith, then President Obama may appear to have lost some of his. The first family, once regular churchgoers, have publicly attended services in Washington just three times in the past year, by ABC News' count, even bypassing the pews on Christmas Day."
'Jerusalem will be Palestinian capital':
"Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas on Thursday said that the Palestinians would not accept Abu Dis, a town between Jerusalem and Ma'aleh Adumim that is currently controlled by the PA, as the capital of their future state, but would insist on receiving control over east Jerusalem."
That will never happen!

Analysis: Lebanon: Conflict widens to Syria:
"The developing logic of the situation in Lebanon is nevertheless widening the circle of future conflict.
The bottom line is that any future strike at Hezb'allah that does not take into account its status as a client of Iran and Syria, is unlikely to be able to land the kind of decisive blow to the organization which alone would justify such a strike."
Meaning: a Israeli military strike on Hezb'allah would be much more effective, or only be effective, if it includes strikes on Damascus (Isaiah 17) and Iran.

DEBKAfile, Libya is first Middle East recipient of Russia's top-line S-300 missile system denied to Iran
Libyan defense minister Younis Jaber arrived in Moscow Tuesday, Jan. 26 to sign a $2 billion military acquisitions deal that makes his country the first in the Middle East to obtain the top-of-the-line S-300 PMU-2 interceptors which Russia is holding back from Iran."
Flashback: 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.
Setting up for the coming war...
Ezekiel 38: 4 I will turn you around and put hooks in your jaws to lead you out with your whole army—your horses and charioteers in full armor and a great horde armed with shields and swords. 5 Persia [Iran], Ethiopia, and Libya will join you, too, with all their weapons.
Most notable is how Ezekiel chapter 38 or how this war ends:
... 17 “This is what the Sovereign Lord asks: Are you the one I was talking about long ago, when I announced through Israel’s prophets that in the future I would bring you against my people? 18 But this is what the Sovereign Lord says: When Gog invades the land of Israel, my fury will boil over! 19 In my jealousy and blazing anger, I promise a mighty shaking in the land of Israel on that day. 20 All living things—the fish in the sea, the birds of the sky, the animals of the field, the small animals that scurry along the ground, and all the people on earth—will quake in terror at my presence. Mountains will be thrown down; cliffs will crumble; walls will fall to the earth. 21 I will summon the sword against you on all the hills of Israel, says the Sovereign Lord. Your men will turn their swords against each other. 22 I will punish you and your armies with disease and bloodshed; I will send torrential rain, hailstones, fire, and burning sulfur! 23 In this way, I will show my greatness and holiness, and I will make myself known to all the nations of the world. Then they will know that I am the Lord.
This sounds to me like the 'end of the world' or possibly, the last day. Recall what the Bible says about the 'last day' in my last post.
...21 “In this way, I will demonstrate my glory to the nations. Everyone will see the punishment I have inflicted on them and the power of my fist when I strike. 22 And from that time on the people of Israel will know that I am the Lord their God. 23 The nations will then know why Israel was sent away to exile—it was punishment for sin, for they were unfaithful to their God. Therefore, I turned away from them and let their enemies destroy them. 24 I turned my face away and punished them because of their defilement and their sins.
Restoration for God’s People25 “So now, this is what the Sovereign Lord says: I will end the captivity of my people; I will have mercy on all Israel, for I jealously guard my holy reputation! 26 They will accept responsibility for their past shame and unfaithfulness after they come home to live in peace in their own land, with no one to bother them. [no "Anti-Christ" to bother them after this war against Gog and Magog] 27 When I bring them home from the lands of their enemies, I will display my holiness among them for all the nations to see. 28 Then my people will know that I am the Lord their God, because I sent them away to exile and brought them home again. I will leave none of my people behind. 29 And I will never again turn my face from them, for I will pour out my Spirit upon the people of Israel. I, the Sovereign Lord, have spoken!”

The World's leaders do not understand Ephesians 6, therefore the world is headed for Revelation 16
10 A final word: Be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. 11 Put on all of God’s armor so that you will be able to stand firm against all strategies of the devil. 12 For we are not fighting against flesh-and-blood enemies, but against evil rulers and authorities of the unseen world, against mighty powers in this dark world, and against evil spirits in the heavenly places.
13 And I saw three evil spirits that looked like frogs leap from the mouths of the dragon, the [LBL, Daniel 7, Rev 13:2] beast, and the false prophet [Mohammad]. 14 They are demonic spirits who work miracles and go out to all the rulers of the world to gather them for battle against the Lord on that great judgment day of God the Almighty.
15 “Look, I will come as unexpectedly as a thief! Blessed are all who are watching for me, who keep their clothing ready so they will not have to walk around naked and ashamed.” [note the context of Christ's second (not third) coming here in verse 15: it's around Judgment Day]16 And the demonic spirits gathered all the rulers and their armies to a place with the Hebrew name Armageddon.
More on the second coming of Jesus Christ - when does he come back? On the "last day" at the "last trumpet".
35Then Jesus declared, "I am the bread of life. He who comes to me will never go hungry, and he who believes in me will never be thirsty. 36But as I told you, you have seen me and still you do not believe. 37All that the Father gives me will come to me, and whoever comes to me I will never drive away. 38For I have come down from heaven not to do my will but to do the will of him who sent me. 39And this is the will of him who sent me, that I shall lose none of all that he has given me, but raise them up at the last day. 40For my Father's will is that everyone who looks to the Son and believes in him shall have eternal life, and I will raise him up at the last day.
41 Then the people began to murmur in disagreement because he had said, “I am the bread that came down from heaven.” 42 They said, “Isn’t this Jesus, the son of Joseph? We know his father and mother. How can he say, ‘I came down from heaven’?”
43 But Jesus replied, “Stop complaining about what I said. 44 For no one can come to me unless the Father who sent me draws them to me, and at the last day I will raise them up. 45 As it is written in the Scriptures, ‘They will all be taught by God.’ Everyone who listens to the Father and learns from him comes to me. 46 (Not that anyone has ever seen the Father; only I, who was sent from God, have seen him.)
47 “I tell you the truth, anyone who believes has eternal life. 48 Yes, I am the bread of life! 49 Your ancestors ate manna in the wilderness, but they all died. 50 Anyone who eats the bread from heaven, however, will never die. 51 I am the living bread that came down from heaven. Anyone who eats this bread will live forever; and this bread, which I will offer so the world may live, is my flesh.”
52 Then the people began arguing with each other about what he meant. “How can this man give us his flesh to eat?” they asked.53 So Jesus said again, “I tell you the truth, unless you eat the flesh of the Son of Man and drink his blood, you cannot have eternal life within you. 54 But anyone who eats my flesh and drinks my blood has eternal life, and I will raise that person at the last day."
1 Corinthians 15:
50I declare to you, brothers, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God, nor does the perishable inherit the imperishable. 51Listen, I tell you a mystery: We will not all sleep, but we will all be changed— 52in a flash, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet [what's the last trumpet mentioned in the Bible?]. For the trumpet will sound, the dead will be raised imperishable, and we will be changed.

The war on terror is a spiritual war, which can only be won in the spiritual realm. Bullets and bombs won't win this war. Unfortunately thousands (yes, I believe at least 'thousands', 'tens of thousands') more of our soldiers will die fighting with completely inadequate, ineffective physical weapons.
Netanyahu: Israel has no plans to attack Lebanon
PM responds to minister's remark that Israel and Hezbollah are headed toward inevitable military conflict.
"The world had failed in its dealing with Hezbollah, allowing the organization to accumulate more weapons that he had in his possession in 2006," Peled said, referring to the Second Lebanon War.
"Lebanon is the only country in the world which has a military organization, Hezbollah, that operates independently of the government and is supported by two foreign countries, while being part of the cabinet," the Likud minister added, referring to the Lebanese militia's backing from Iran and Syria.

Waiting for the Final War
Jesus Christ will personally intervene in a future Israeli war
Sarkozy: Israel might act to stop Iranian nuclear program
"Israel might take action to prevent the Iranian regime, which wants to wipe it off the map of the world, from obtaining a nuclear bomb," Sarkozy reportedly explained to visiting Lebanese Prime Minister Sa'ad Hariri.
According to Saturday's report in the London-based Arab daily, Sarkozy told Hariri that France had proof that Teheran was working to develop a nuclear bomb.
Yossi Peled: Another conflict with Lebanon is 'inevitable'

26 Dear friends, if we deliberately continue sinning after we have received knowledge of the truth, there is no longer any sacrifice that will cover these sins. 27 There is only the terrible expectation of God’s judgment and the raging fire that will consume his enemies. 28 For anyone who refused to obey the law of Moses was put to death without mercy on the testimony of two or three witnesses. 29 Just think how much worse the punishment will be for those who have trampled on the Son of God, and have treated the blood of the covenant, which made us holy, as if it were common and unholy, and have insulted and disdained the Holy Spirit who brings God’s mercy to us. 30 For we know the one who said,
“I will take revenge.
I will pay them back.”
He also said,
“The Lord will judge his own people.”
31 It is a terrible thing to fall into the hands of the living God.
Why Are We Afraid to Refer to God's Wrath?
B.C. pastor links Haiti quake to voodoo
VANCOUVER — A B.C. pastor has found himself in hot water over comments he made on the weekend about the earthquake tragedy in Haiti.
Justin Dennison, lead pastor at Johnston Heights Church in the Vancouver suburb of Surrey, said Wednesday that comments he made after a sermon on Sunday don't accurately reflect what he was trying to say.
People are being so careful to avoid calling Haiti 'a judgment from God'. As though God is only love and incapable of wrath. What a silly notion. I don't know if the recent hurricane and earthquake in Haiti are judgment from God, as I don't see why Haiti would be under any greater judgment than anywhere else in this world. But of course God's wrath can manifest itself in the physical destruction of people, whether through flood, fire, earthquake, plague, etc. The Bible is chock full of examples where God pronounces judgment on disobedient people, not the least of which were the Israelites as they were kicked out of their promised land for 2,500 years until May14, 1948.
The God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob is a jealous, vengeful God, but our churches fail to characterize Him as such. Instead they portray Him as ever-patient, never angry, eternally forgiving - which is false - that's not the full picture of His character. However, forgiveness is offered now and for a short time hereafter.
1 An oracle concerning Nineveh. The book of the vision of Nahum the Elkoshite.
The Lord 's Anger Against Nineveh2 The LORD is a jealous and avenging God;
the LORD takes vengeance and is filled with wrath.
The LORD takes vengeance on his foes
and maintains his wrath against his enemies.
3 The LORD is slow to anger and great in power;
the LORD will not leave the guilty unpunished.
His way is in the whirlwind and the storm,
and clouds are the dust of his feet.
4 He rebukes the sea and dries it up;
he makes all the rivers run dry.
Bashan and Carmel wither
and the blossoms of Lebanon fade.
5 The mountains quake before him
and the hills melt away.
The earth trembles at his presence,
the world and all who live in it.
6 Who can withstand his indignation?
Who can endure his fierce anger?
His wrath is poured out like fire;
the rocks are shattered before him.
7 The LORD is good,
a refuge in times of trouble.
He cares for those who trust in him,
8 but with an overwhelming flood
he will make an end of Nineveh ;
he will pursue his foes into darkness.
18The wrath of God is being revealed from heaven against all the godlessness and wickedness of men who suppress the truth by their wickedness, 19since what may be known about God is plain to them, because God has made it plain to them. 20For since the creation of the world God's invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature—have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that men are without excuse.
Muslims Angry Over U.S. Military 'Jesus' Rifles
"'The use of military equipment with hidden Bible references sends the false message to Muslims worldwide that we are at war with Islam,' said CAIR Legal Counsel Nadhira Al-Khalili. 'In addition, these sights are a potential recruiting tool for anti-American forces, endanger our troops and alienate our Muslim allies. They should we withdrawn as soon as logistically possible.'"
"...falses message that we are at war with Islam?" Although no world leader is saying it, it's quite obvious that 98% of modern-day terrorist attacks are carried out by Muslims. So isn't it quite obvious that we are at war with Islam, because that "religion" has declared war on us since its inception?
"alienate our Muslim allies" Perhaps a few quotes out of the Quran and hadiths will clarify whether Islam is friend or foe to the West:
|Qur'an:9:5||"Fight and kill the disbelievers wherever you find them, take them captive, harass them, lie in wait and ambush them using every stratagem of war."|
|Qur'an:9:112||"The Believers fight in Allah's Cause, they slay and are slain, kill and are killed."|
|Qur'an:9:29||"Fight those who do not believe until they all surrender, paying the protective tax in submission."|
|Ishaq:325||"Muslims, fight in Allah's Cause. Stand firm and you will prosper. Help the Prophet, obey him, give him your allegiance, and your religion will be victorious."|
|Qur'an:8:39||"Fight them until all opposition ends and all submit to Allah."|
|Qur'an:8:39||"So fight them until there is no more Fitnah (disbelief [non-Muslims]) and all submit to the religion of Allah alone (in the whole world)."|
|Ishaq:324||"He said, 'Fight them so that there is no more rebellion, and religion, all of it, is for Allah only. Allah must have no rivals.'"|
|Qur'an:9:14||"Fight them and Allah will punish them by your hands, lay them low, and cover them with shame. He will help you over them."|
|Ishaq:300||"I am fighting in Allah's service. This is piety and a good deed. In Allah's war I do not fear as others should. For this fighting is righteous, true, and good."|
|Qur'an:8:65||"O Prophet, urge the faithful to fight. If there are twenty among you with determination they will vanquish two hundred; if there are a hundred then they will slaughter a thousand unbelievers, for the infidels are a people devoid of understanding."|
|Ishaq:326||"Prophet exhort the believers to fight. If there are twenty good fighters they will defeat two hundred for they are a senseless people. They do not fight with good intentions nor for truth."|
|Bukhari:V4B52N63||"A man whose face was covered with an iron mask came to the Prophet and said, 'Allah's Apostle! Shall I fight or embrace Islam first?' The Prophet said, 'Embrace Islam first and then fight.' So he embraced Islam, and was martyred. Allah's Apostle said, 'A Little work, but a great reward.'"|
|Bukhari:V4B53N386||"Our Prophet, the Messenger of our Lord, ordered us to fight you till you worship Allah alone or pay us the Jizyah tribute tax in submission. Our Prophet has informed us that our Lord says: 'Whoever amongst us is killed as a martyr shall go to Paradise to lead such a luxurious life as he has never seen, and whoever survives shall become your master.'"|
|Muslim:C34B20N4668||"The Messenger said: 'Anybody who equips a warrior going to fight in the Way of Allah is like one who actually fights. And anybody who looks after his family in his absence is also like one who actually fights."|
|Qur'an:9:38||"Believers, what is the matter with you, that when you are asked to go forth and fight in Allah's Cause you cling to the earth? Do you prefer the life of this world to the Hereafter? Unless you go forth, He will afflict and punish you with a painful doom, and put others in your place."|
|Qur'an:9:123||"Fight the unbelievers around you, and let them find harshness in you."|
|Qur'an:8:72||"Those who accepted Islam and left their homes to fight in Allah's Cause with their possessions and persons, and those who gave (them) asylum, aid, and shelter, those who harbored them - these are allies of one another. You are not responsible for protecting those who embraced Islam but did not leave their homes [to fight] until they do so." [Another translation reads:] "You are only called to protect Muslims who fight."|
|Muslim:C9B1N31||"I have been commanded to fight against people till they testify to the fact that there is no god but Allah, and believe in me (that) I am the Messenger and in all that I have brought."|
|Bukhari:V9B84N59||"Whoever says this will save his property and life from me.'"|
|Qur'an:8:73||"The unbelieving infidels are allies. Unless you (Muslims) aid each other (fighting as one united block to make Allah's religion victorious), there will be confusion and mischief. Those who accepted Islam, left their homes to fight in Allah's Cause (al-Jihad), as well as those who give them asylum, shelter, and aid - these are (all) Believers: for them is pardon and bountiful provision (in Paradise)."|
|Tabari IX:69||"Arabs are the most noble people in lineage, the most prominent, and the best in deeds. We were the first to respond to the call of the Prophet. We are Allah's helpers and the viziers of His Messenger. We fight people until they believe in Allah. He who believes in Allah and His Messenger has protected his life and possessions from us. As for one who disbelieves, we will fight him forever in the Cause of Allah. Killing him is a small matter to us."|
|Qur'an:48:16||"Say (Muhammad) to the wandering desert Arabs who lagged behind: 'You shall be invited to fight against a people given to war with mighty prowess. You shall fight them until they surrender and submit. If you obey, Allah will grant you a reward, but if you turn back, as you did before, He will punish you with a grievous torture."|
|Qur'an:48:22||"If the unbelieving infidels fight against you, they will retreat. (Such has been) the practice (approved) of Allah in the past: no change will you find in the ways of Allah."|
|Qur'an:47:4||"When you clash with the unbelieving Infidels in battle (fighting Jihad in Allah's Cause), smite their necks until you overpower them, killing and wounding many of them. At length, when you have thoroughly subdued them, bind them firmly, making (them) captives. Thereafter either generosity or ransom (them based upon what benefits Islam) until the war lays down its burdens. Thus are you commanded by Allah to continue carrying out Jihad against the unbelieving infidels until they submit to Islam."|
|Qur'an:47:31||"And We shall try you until We know those among you who are the fighters."|
|Tabari VI:138||"Those present at the oath of Aqabah had sworn an allegiance to Muhammad. It was a pledge of war against all men. Allah had permitted fighting."|
|Tabari VI:139||"Allah had given his Messenger permission to fight by revealing the verse 'And fight them until persecution is no more, and religion is all for Allah.'"|
|Qur'an:9:19||"Do you make the giving of drink to pilgrims, or the maintenance of the Mosque, equal to those who fight in the Cause of Allah? They are not comparable in the sight of Allah. Those who believe, and left their homes, striving with might, fighting in Allah's Cause with their goods and their lives, have the highest rank in the sight of Allah."|
|Ishaq:550||"The Muslims met them with their swords. They cut through many arms and skulls. Only confused cries and groans could be heard over our battle roars and snarling."|
|Qur'an:5:94||"Believers, Allah will make a test for you in the form of a little game in which you reach out for your lances. Any who fails this test will have a grievous punishment."|
|Ishaq:578||"Crushing the heads of the infidels and splitting their skulls with sharp swords, we continually thrust and cut at the enemy. Blood gushed from their deep wounds as the battle wore them down. We conquered bearing the Prophet's fluttering war banner. Our cavalry was submerged in rising dust, and our spears quivered, but by us the Prophet gained victory."|
|Tabari IX:22||"The Prophet continued to besiege the town, fighting them bitterly."|
|Tabari IX:25||"By Allah, I did not come to fight for nothing. I wanted a victory over Ta'if so that I might obtain a slave girl from them and make her pregnant."|
|Tabari IX:82||"The Messenger sent Khalid with an army of 400 to Harith [a South Arabian tribe] and ordered him to invite them to Islam for three days before he fought them. If they were to respond and submit, he was to teach them the Book of Allah, the Sunnah of His Prophet, and the requirements of Islam. If they should decline, then he was to fight them."|
|Tabari IX:88||"Abdallah Azdi came to the Messenger, embraced Islam, and became a good Muslim. Allah's Apostle invested Azdi with the authority over those who had surrendered and ordered him to fight the infidels from the tribes of Yemen. Azdi left with an army by the Messenger's command. The Muslims besieged them for a month. Then they withdrew, setting a trap. When the Yemenites went in pursuit, Azdi was able to inflict a heavy loss on them."|
|Ishaq:530||"Get out of his way, you infidel unbelievers. Every good thing goes with the Apostle. Lord, I believe in his word. We will fight you about its interpretations as we have fought you about its revelation with strokes that will remove heads from shoulders and make enemies of friends."|
|Muslim:C9B1N29||"Command For Fighting Against People So Long As They Do Not Profess That There Is No Ilah (God) But Allah And Muhammad Is His Messenger: When the Messenger breathed his last and Bakr was appointed Caliph, many Arabs chose to become apostates [rejected Islam]. Abu Bakr said: 'I will definitely fight against anyone who stops paying the Zakat tax, for it is an obligation. I will fight against them even to secure the cord used for hobbling the feet of a camel which they used to pay if they withhold it now.' Allah had justified fighting against those who refused to pay Zakat."|
|Muslim:C9B1N33||"The Prophet said: 'I have been commanded to fight against people till they testify there is no god but Allah, that Muhammad is the Messenger of Allah, and they establish prostration prayer, and pay Zakat. If they do it, their blood and property are protected.'"|
|Muslim:C10B1N176||"Muhammad (may peace be upon him) sent us in a raiding party. We raided Huraqat in the morning. I caught hold of a man and he said: 'There is no god but Allah,' but I attacked him with a spear anyway. It once occurred to me that I should ask the Apostle about this. The Messenger said: 'Did he profess "There is no god but Allah," and even then you killed him?' I said: 'He made a profession out of the fear of the weapon I was threatening him with.' The Prophet said: 'Did you tear out his heart in order to find out whether it had professed truly or not?'"|
|Muslim:C20B1N4597||"The Prophet said at the conquest of Mecca: 'There is no migration now, but only Jihad, fighting for the Cause of Islam. When you are asked to set out on a Jihad expedition, you should readily do so.'"|
|Muslim:C28B20N4628||"Allah has undertaken to provide for one who leaves his home to fight for His Cause and to affirm the truth of His word; Allah will either admit him to Paradise or will bring him back home with his reward and booty."|
|Muslim:C28B20N4629||"The Messenger said: 'One who is wounded in the Way of Allah - and Allah knows best who is wounded in His Way - will appear on the Day of Judgment with his wound still bleeding. The color (of its discharge) will be blood, (but) its smell will be musk.'"|
|Muslim:C34B20N4652-3||"The Merit Of Jihad And Of Keeping Vigilance Over The Enemy: A man came to the Holy Prophet and said: 'Who is the best of men?' He replied: 'A man who fights staking his life and spending his wealth in Allah's Cause.'"|
|Muslim:C42B20N4684||"A desert Arab came to the Prophet and said: 'Messenger, one man fights for the spoils of war; another fights that he may be remembered, and one fights that he may see his (high) position (achieved as a result of his valor in fighting). Which of these is fighting in the Cause of Allah?' The Messenger of Allah said: 'Who fights so that the word of Allah is exalted is fighting in the Way of Allah.'"|
|Muslim:C53B20N4717||"The Prophet said: 'This religion will continue to exist, and a group of people from the Muslims will continue to fight for its protection until the Hour is established.'"|
|Bukhari:V5B59N288||"I witnessed a scene that was dearer to me than anything I had ever seen. Aswad came to the Prophet while Muhammad was urging the Muslims to fight the pagans. He said, 'We shall fight on your right and on your left and in front of you and behind you.' I saw the face of the Prophet getting bright with happiness, for that saying delighted him."|
|Bukhari:V5B59N290||"The believers who did not join the Ghazwa [Islamic raid or invasion] and those who fought are not equal in reward."|
|Qur'an:2:193||"Fight them until there is no more Fitnah (disbelief) and religion is only for Allah. But if they cease/desist, let there be no hostility except against infidel disbelievers."|
|Qur'an:2:217||"They question you concerning fighting in the sacred month. Say: 'Fighting therein is a grave (matter); but to prevent access to Allah, to deny Him, to prevent access to the Sacred Mosque, to expel its members, and polytheism are worse than slaughter. Nor will they cease fighting you until they make you renegades from your religion. If any of you turn back and die in unbelief, your works will be lost and you will go to Hell. Surely those who believe and leave their homes to fight in Allah's Cause have the hope of Allah's mercy."|
|Qur'an:2:244||"Fight in Allah's Cause, and know that Allah hears and knows all."|
|Qur'an:2:246||"He said: 'Would you refrain from fighting if fighting were prescribed for you?' They said: 'How could we refuse to fight in Allah's Cause?'"|
|Ishaq:280||"The Apostle prepared for war in pursuance of Allah's command to fight his enemies and to fight the infidels who Allah commanded him to fight."|
|Qur'an:61:2||"O Muslims, why say one thing and do another? Grievously odious and hateful is it in the sight of Allah that you say that which you do not. Truly Allah loves those who fight in His Cause in a battle array, as if they were a solid cemented structure."|

|Ishaq:398||"Ask them for their help. Thereby make the religion of Islam agreeable to them. And when you are resolved in the matter of religion concerning fighting your enemy you will have the advantage."|
|Qur'an:3:146||"How many prophets fought in Allah's Cause? With them (fought) myriads of godly men who were slain. They never lost heart if they met with disaster in Allah's Cause, nor did they weaken nor give in. Allah loves those who are firm and steadfast [warriors]."|
|Ishaq:393||"How many prophets has death in battle befallen and how many multitudes with him? They did not show weakness toward their enemies and were not humiliated when they suffered in the fight for Allah and their religion. That is steadfastness. Allah loves the steadfast."|
|Qur'an:3:153||"Behold! You ran off precipitately, climbing up the high hill without even casting a side glance at anyone, while the Messenger in your rear is calling you from your rear, urging you to fight. Allah gave you one distress after another by way of requital, to teach you not to grieve for the booty that had escaped you and for (the ill) that had befallen you."|
|Qur'an:3:154||"Say: 'Even if you had remained in your houses, those ordained to be slaughtered would have gone forth to the places where they were to slain."|
|Ishaq:440||"Helped by the Holy Spirit we smited Muhammad's foes. The Apostle sent a message to them with a sharp cutting sword."|

|Qur'an:61:11||"Believers, shall I lead you to a bargain or trade that will save you from a painful torment? That you believe in Allah and His Messenger (Muhammad), and that you strive and fight in Allah's Cause with your property and your lives: That will be best for you!" Qur'an 61:12 "He will forgive you your sins, and admit you to Gardens under which rivers flow, and to beautiful mansions in Eden: that is indeed the Supreme Achievement. And another (favor) which you love: help from Allah for a speedy victory over your enemies."|

|Qur'an:4:95||"Not equal are believers who sit home and receive no hurt and those who fight in Allah's Cause with their wealth and lives. Allah has granted a grade higher to those who fight with their possessions and bodies to those who sit home. Those who fight He has distinguished with a special reward."|
|Qur'an:4:100||"He who leaves his home in Allah's Cause finds abundant resources and many a refuge. Should he die as a refugee for Allah and His Messenger His reward becomes due and sure with Allah. When you travel through the earth there is no blame on you if you curtail your worship for fear unbelievers may attack you. In truth the disbelievers are your enemy."|
|Qur'an:4:102||"When you (Prophet) lead them in prayer, let some stand with you, taking their arms with them. When they finish their prostrations, let them take positions in the rear. And let others who have not yet prayed come - taking all precaution, and bearing arms. The Infidels wish, if you were negligent of your arms, to assault you in a rush. But there is no blame on you if you put away your arms because of the inconvenience of rain or because you are ill; but take precaution. For the Unbelieving Infidels Allah hath prepared a humiliating punishment."|
|Qur'an:4:104||"And do not relent in pursuing the enemy."|
Let's not be willingly ignorant about this: of course we are at war with Islam, an evil ideology, because it has declared war on us.

The new FBI-retouch of an aging Osama bin Laden on the left, and Spanish politician Gaspar Llamazares on the right: Is this how the FBI goes about profiling America's most wanted?
Is it bin Laden or a Spanish politician, or is the Spanish politician bin Laden in disguise?
U.S. Military Weapons Inscribed With Secret 'Jesus' Bible Codes
Coded references to New Testament Bible passages about Jesus Christ are inscribed on high-powered rifle sights provided to the United States military by a Michigan company, an ABC News investigation has found.
It's a sad testament of how far we've fallen when scripture references are referred to as "Secret Jesus Bible Codes". They are "secret codes" perhaps to the willingly ignorant in the West, but as far as the secularists complaining how this will embolden the enemy to consider this a Crusade - they already hate us as infidels destined for beheading via the sword of Islam. It's far too late to try and appeal to their sensitivities.
Besides, we're not fighting Muslims (are we?), it's well documented in Western mainstream media that we're fighting "terrorists" - and not a religion of any kind (wink, wink). So how could the "terrorist enemy" possibly consider this war a religious Crusade. I mean, what small percentage of "terrorists" are actually Muslim anyways? (sarcasm intended)
Why we never get the story straight on Islamic Jihad
As Osama bin Laden himself said in 1998:
On that basis, and in compliance with God’s order, we issue the following fatwa to all Muslims:
The ruling to kill the Americans and their allies — civilians and military — is an individual duty for every Muslim who can do it in any country in which it is possible to do it, in order to liberate the al-Aqsa Mosque and the holy mosque [Mecca] from their grip, and in order for their armies to move out of all the lands of Islam, defeated and unable to threaten any Muslim. This is in accordance with the words of Almighty God, “and fight the pagans all together as they fight you all together,” and “fight them until there is no more tumult or oppression, and there prevail justice and faith in God.”
We — with God’s help — call on every Muslim who believes in God and wishes to be rewarded to comply with God’s order to kill the Americans and plunder their money wherever and whenever they find it. We also call on Muslim ulema, leaders, youths, and soldiers to launch the raid on Satan’s U.S. troops and the devil’s supporters allying with them, and to displace those who are behind them so that they may learn a lesson.
Islam is ... verboten on Google
"Google Suggest happily reflects users’ derisive queries about every other religion, but when it comes to Islam, it’s mute."
France accused the US of "occupying" Haiti
U.S. Secretary of Defence is sending 10,000 troops to Haiti, but not for policing (?).
Is it any coincidence that one of Ahmadinejad's best buddies - Hugo Chavez - rules right there in Venezuela? Undoubtedly Chavez and Ahmadinejad have been exchanging notes on military matters. Are 10,000 U.S. troops in response to that perceived threat?
No policing role for U.S. troops in Haiti: Gates | Reuters
Gates told reporters there would be a security element to U.S. relief efforts, but added: 'I haven't heard of us playing a policing role at any point.'

“At the time of those events,” says the Lord,
“when I restore the prosperity of Judah and Jerusalem,
2 I will gather the armies of the world
into the valley of Jehoshaphat.
11 You will say, ‘Israel is an unprotected land filled with unwalled villages! I will march against her and destroy these people who live in such confidence! 12 I will go to those formerly desolate cities that are now filled with people who have returned from exile in many nations. I will capture vast amounts of plunder, for the people are rich with livestock and other possessions now...
From 1980 to 2000, Saudia Arabia registered 171 patents, Egypt 77, Kuwait, 52, UAE 32, Syria 20, Jordan 15.
By comparison, tiny Israel, with no oil resources and only seven million people, registered 7,652 patents.
God is restoring and blessing his people Israel right in front of our eyes!

The re-emergence of the Lion-Bear-Leopard beast of Daniel 7, Revelation 13:2 and Revelation 16 is almost complete with Turkey joining Ahmadinejad's radical Islamic alliance
DEBKAfile - US, Israel close their eyes to Turkey's radicalization
Erdogan regime has divorced itself from the pro-Western bloc of Saudi Arabia, Egypt, Jordan and Israel and plunged headlong into the new "Northern Islamic Alliance" club, alongside Iran, the Lebanese Hizballah and the Palestinian extremist Hamas.
From Ellis H. Skolfield's The False Prophet:
And the sixth angel poured out his vial upon the great river Euphrates [which flows between Iraq and Iran]; and the water thereof was dried up [as the waters that separated them were figuratively dried up, they figuratively became one land, and through Islam they have spiritually become one people], that the way of the kings of the east [LBL] might be prepared [Afghanistan is also East of LBL]. And I saw three unclean spirits [Leopard-Bear-Lion is a threepart empire] like frogs come out of the mouth of the dragon [satan], and out of the mouth of the [LBL] beast, and out of the mouth of the false prophet [Muhammad]. For they are the spirits of devils, working miracles, which go forth unto the kings of the earth and of the whole world [for the first time in history, Islam is now spreading into the Western world], to gather them to the battle of that great day of God Almighty. [comments inserted]
Note the location of this prophecy: the River Euphrates, a river that runs between Iran and Iraq and into Syria. That's the lair of the Leopard-Bear-Lion once again. Notice how many evil spirits like frogs there are: THREE and LBL beast is a composite three-part beast. It is the release of these three demons into the world that will trigger Armageddon. Just watch how Islam is spreading.

Bomb Blast Kills Nuclear Physicist in Tehran - NYTimes.com: "PARIS — A bomb attached to a motorcycle killed an Iranian professor of nuclear physics outside his home in northern Tehran on Tuesday, state media reported, blaming the United States and Israel.."
DEBKAfile - Covert war on Iran's nuclear program reaches into Tehran: The covert war against Iran's nuclear program struck deep inside the Islamic Republic with the death Tuesday, Jan. 12 of nuclear physicist professor Masoud Ali Mohammadi, 50, by a remote-controlled exploding motorbike as he left his Tehran home. He was a senior professor at Tehran University which DEBKAfile's Iranian sources say is an important hub of nuclear weapons research."
1 Timothy 4:
1 I solemnly urge you in the presence of God and Christ Jesus, who will someday judge the living and the dead when he appears to set up his Kingdom: 2 Preach the word of God. Be prepared, whether the time is favorable or not. Patiently correct, rebuke, and encourage your people with good teaching.
3 For a time is coming when people will no longer listen to sound and wholesome teaching. They will follow their own desires and will look for teachers who will tell them whatever their itching ears want to hear. 4 They will reject the truth and chase after myths.
5 But you should keep a clear mind in every situation. Don’t be afraid of suffering for the Lord. Work at telling others the Good News, and fully carry out the ministry God has given you.
Live each day knowing that Jesus Christ will judge you on how you lived your life. Knowing that fact sure helps us to align our priorities to what's really important in this short life.
Christ is coming soon; therefore judgment is coming soon.

Iran agrees to 2-month suspension of nuke plan "Iran agreed to suspend its nuclear program for two months as part of an ultimatum it set before the West, according to statements made by Iranian Foreign Ministry spokesman"
Understanding Taqiyya ― Islamic Principle of Lying for the Sake of Allah
Like many Islamic practices, taqiyya was formed within the context of the culture of Arab tribalism, expansionary warfare, Bedouin raiding and inter-tribal conflict. Taqiyya has been used by Muslims since the 7th century to confuse, confound and divide 'the enemy’.

Taiwan firm: China got Iran part with nuke uses
"Lin said that when he contacted the Swiss firm he had no idea where the transducers were heading. 'It was only at the last minute that the Chinese told me to send them to Iran,' he said.
Nuclear proliferation expert David Albright of the Washington-based Institute for Science and International Security told the AP that Iran tried hard to procure the transducers in Europe and Canada, but was thwarted by a concerted international effort. However, he said, the existence of the Taiwanese-Chinese connection shows that Iran still has the ability to get what it needs by tapping alternative sources.
'This equipment is likely for its gas centrifuge program,' he said."

Did you know Ahmadinejad is the founder of the "Iranian Tunneling Association". What are the chances he's hiding a nuclear weapons program underground?
Iran Shielding Its Nuclear Efforts in Maze of Tunnels - NYTimes.com: "Over the past decade, Iran has quietly hidden an increasingly large part of its atomic complex in networks of tunnels and bunkers across the country."
7 mortar shells fired from Gaza: "Seven mortar shells were fired from the Gaza Strip on Thursday morning. Most of them landed between the Kerem Shalom crossing and a community in the Eshkol Regional Council. There were no reports of injuries or damage. Three additional shells landed in Gaza."
Tyre and Sidon = today's Hezb'allah threat from Lebanon?
Philistia= Hamas and al Qaeda threat from the Gaza Strip?

14 Multitudes, multitudes
in the valley of decision!
For the day of the LORD is near
in the valley of decision.
15 The sun and moon will be darkened,
and the stars no longer shine.
16 The LORD will roar from Zion
and thunder from Jerusalem;
the earth and the sky will tremble.
But the LORD will be a refuge for his people,
a stronghold for the people of Israel.
