US NAVY: IRAN'S PREPARED SUICIDE BOMB BOATS IN GULF
By REUTERS - 13/02/2012 - The commander of US naval forces in
the region says US navy can prevent Iran from blocking Strait
of Hormuz; "They've increased the number of submarines,
fast attack craft," Vice Admiral Mark Fox says.
MANAMA - Iran has built up its naval forces in the Gulf and prepared
boats that could be used in suicide attacks, but the US Navy
can prevent it from blocking the Strait of Hormuz, the commander
of US naval forces in the region said on Sunday. Iran has made
a series of threats in recent weeks to disrupt shipping in the
Gulf or strike US forces in retaliation if its oil trade is shut
down by sanctions, or if its disputed nuclear program comes under
"They have increased the number of submarines ... they increased
the number of fast attack craft," Vice Admiral Mark Fox
told reporters. "Some of the small boats have been outfitted
with a large warhead that could be used as a suicide explosive
device. The Iranians have a large mine inventory."
"We have watched with interest their development of long
range rockets and short, medium and long range ballistic missiles
and of course ... the development of their nuclear program,"
Fox, who heads the US Fifth Fleet, said at a briefing on the
fleet's base in the Gulf state of Bahrain. Iran now has 10 small
submarines, he said. Continued:
ON ISRAEL AND IRAN
Posted by: Bruce Krasting - 03/01/2012 - Battle talk. A very
big question mark hanging over the global table is what the hell
is going to happen between Iran and Israel. I spoke with a fellow
in Europe I know who has an informed opinion. There were no secrets
discussed, but his thoughts on some of the variables including
Syria, bunker bombs and timing were interesting. Will Israel
allow Iran to develop a nuke? Not a chance in hell.- What is
the 'over - under on timing'? Certainly less than two years.
Does Israel have the capacity to take out concrete hardened facilities
in Iran? Yes, but this is by no means an easy task. It is not
possible for the Israel Air force to attack without going over
some other countrys border. The choices are Turkey (Iraq
then Iran), Jordan (Saudi Arabia, Iraq then Iran), Syria (Iraq
then Iran) or Saudi Arabia (Direct to Iran). Continued: http://www.zerohedge.com/contributed/2012-09-01/israel-and-iran

for the largest-ever joint military exercises with Israel - is
it time for the treaty? Listen, this "thing" is getting
way out front of us and those who refuse to come to terms with
what is happening either do not wish to or realize that if they
do they'll have to make some serious changes with their lives
and what's really important in their daily living. Even so -

have so much on their plate that one more item is just too much
to handle...it's coming, meanwhile I still hear fiddles playing
in the background, while something's beginning to burn!

- IRAN RAID LIKELY TO DRAG IN U.S. AND HURT GLOBAL ECONOMY
- Would an Israeli raid on Iran's nuclear facilities bring
all sorts of chaos upon the American economy and possibly cause
terrorism on our home soil? No doubt it would get extremist Muslims
jumping up and down (which is usually a daily occurrence somewhere
in the world). Would it drag the U.S. into a wider regional war?
Probably. If gas goes to Euro-prices Americans will no doubt
blame the Jews- always the convenient scapegoat.
- I am still working out whether we will be the young lions
of Ezekiel 38 or not. (Although I do not see this war coming
first in the end times war line-up of (Ps. 83, Ez. 38, and of
course, Armageddon.) Israel is hardly in the place of dwelling
safely without walls and something monumental must happen for
her to let her guard down to the point that her annihilation
would happen without Gods sovereign intervention.
- So what would be the consequences of Israel attacking Iran?
Israel does believe the window for diplomacy is closing quickly.
The Western worlds will of course blame Israel for hegemony while
secretly being thrilled someone finally dealt the kiss of death
to those mad Ayatollahs. Personally I think the West is terrified
that if Israel bombs Irans nuclear reactors back into the
12th century (where they really will feel right at home) a broader
conflict will certainly ensue.
- "Whoever attacks Iran's nuclear infrastructure is really
making the decision to go to war with Iran," Richard Burt,
a former chief U.S. negotiator at strategic arms reduction talks,
told Reuters on the sidelines of the Munich Security Conference.
"We are talking about a range of great uncertainties, all
of them basically negative, so this is one reason why consistently
the joint chiefs of staff of the uniformed military in the U.S.
do not like the idea of attacking Iran."
- The New York Times recently reported that Israeli leaders
dont think that an attack on Iran would not produce such
catastrophic events as a regional war, terrorism on American
soil or a steep rise in the price of oil. I think that is a tad
bit unrealistic- but then again, I am no military strategist.
- Israel thinks Iran is bluffing and posturing. I remember
peaceful Iran threatening to wipe Israel off
- The Washington Post reported last week that Defense Secretary
Leon Panetta believed Israel was likely to bomb Iran within months
to stop it building a nuclear bomb. Panetta declined to comment.
But his alleged remarks and other Obama administration statements
indicate the White House is focused on dissuading Israel from
taking action - and distancing itself from an Israeli strike
if persuasion fails. I still think an Israeli attack would begin
WW3- but then again that is just me.
- What would happen right away if Israel attacked Iran? Oil
prices would certainly soar and there would be another jolt and
instability to the worlds financial markets. Then we would
no doubt see Muslims ranting, Death to America- death to
Israel. If Iran decided to close the Strait of Hormuz,
which is vital for oil shipments, or attacked Saudi oilfields,
there would be an immediate rise in oil prices, which would no
doubt have a domino effect on our economy. Then a wider war would
follow. Perhaps dragging in Russia and China. Editor: HOLLIS
- CHRISTIAN PALESTINIANISM??? THE NEXT REPLACEMENT THEOLOGY:
- Once again, the liberal camp is leading a pack of peace
activists who appear to be fully committed to seeing justice
(albeit solely from a Palestinian worldview) and reconciliation
in the middle-east. Unfortunately, politically correct and tolerant
liberals end up promoting the anti-Semitic views put forward
- Part of the process of Christian Palestinianism is a progressive
removal of the Jewish roots of Christianity. Judeo-Christian
ethics are replaced with "Christian" ethics. This systematic
removal of the Jewish roots of Christianity facilitates the delegitimization
of Israel as Gods chosen people and further justifies her
removal from the world as we know it, even though this might
not be the most apparent agenda.
- In her book Eurabia: the Euro-Arab Axis released in 2006,
Jewish author and activist Bat Yeor almost prophetically
calls it Palestinian Marcionism: The Christian policy
that would eliminate the Jewish source of Christianity by suppressing
the link between the Hebrew Bible and the Gospels represents
an old and lingering trend, always opposed by the Church. It
was first formulated by Marcion, a second-century Byzantine priest
of pagan background who was strongly influenced by Gnosticism.
Today, Palestinian Marcionism (Palestinianism) paves the way
for the Islamization of the Church as it prepares mentalities
for an Islamic replacement theology. Bat Yeors assessment
has tragically proven true in the last 5 years.
- Christian Palestinianism is well on its way to de-Judaize
Jesus a job that the gentile branch of Christianity generously
contributed to, out of ignorance or pure hatred of the Jews over
the centuries. CP will also continue to invalidate much of the
Jewish Scriptures as history gets re-written and Jewish references
get replaced to accommodate the Islamization of the
Bible. Additionally, British expert Paul Wilkinson documents
the movement as he traces its origins and agenda: Christian
Palestinianism is an inverted mirror image of Christian Zionism.
All the basic elements of a Christian Zionist eschatology are
reversed, so that the Bible is seen to be Christian, not Jewish,
the land of the Bible is Palestine not Israel, the Son of God
is a Palestinian not a Jew, the Holocaust is resented not remembered,
1948 is a catastrophe not a miracle, the Jewish people are illegal
occupiers not rightful owners, and Biblical prophecy is a moral
manifesto and not a signpost to the Second Coming. Despite enlisting
support from the theological community and seeking validation
through academia, the overriding thrust of Christian Palestinianism
is political, not Biblical.
- It is a shame to see that many Evangelical are buying into
the lies of Christian Palestinianism. Endorsements of such projects
by former World Vision US President, Robert Seiple; Stephen Sizer,
Vicar of Christ Church in the UK, Lynne Hybels, wife of Bill
Hybels of Willow Creek Church or even Gary Burge from Wheaton
College, only add insult to injury. The same can be said for
a more vocally Christian project known as With God on Our Side,
directed by Porter Speakman Jr. and endorsed by Tony Campolo
and current Vice President of World Vision, Steve Haas. It has
also received rave reviews from Christianity Today Christian
Palestinianism is Supersessionism gone wild!
- Where the Church left off with Replacement Theologys
faulty substitution of Israel for todays Body of Messiah,
Christian Palestinianism picked up and ran with it. With any
vestige of the Jewish roots of Christianity eradicated, Israel
and the Jewish people will become irrelevant and this is a risk
we cannot afford to take. Palestinianism is becoming the next
big wave of Christian anti-Semitism, yet there is a simple solution...

- KEEP YOUR EYES ON SYRIA:
- (Edited) Reuven Doron - An oracle concerning Damascus:
See, Damascus will no longer be a city but will become
a heap of ruins. The cities of Aroer will be deserted and left
to flocks, which will lie down, with no one to make them afraid.
The fortified city will disappear from Ephraim, and royal power
from Damascus; the remnant of Aram will be like the glory of
the Israelites, declares the LORD Almighty. (Is.
- Historically, being one of the oldest cities in the world,
Damascus has never experienced such utter and total devastation
as Isaiah prophesies. Frank Amedia-(www.touchheaven.com) mentions:
For months now, the totalitarian Syrian regime that is controlled
by the Alawite minority has been under fierce domestic assault
as the Syrian public is following the example of anti-government
revolutions throughout the Middle East known as the Arab
Spring. The Alawite regime responded swiftly to this civil
unrest with a tough policy aimed at crushing the popular uprising
by military show of strength with tanks and missiles smashing
into civilian neighborhoods. The Syrian population suffered thousands
of casualties from the hands of its own government. months and
- It is helpful to remember that the Alawites, or Alawis, the
ruling minority sect, are not truly Muslims. This sect dates
from the ninth century A.D., and though it originated from Shia
Islam (the sect that dominates Iran) they believe that Ali, a
relative of Muhammad, is an actual incarnation of the divinity,
and worship a trinity of sorts which consists of
Muhammad, Ali, and a freed slave.
- Their doctrines are ambiguous and secretive, and only males
can be inducted into them through rituals and rites. Women are
considered a lower class created for labor and reproduction only,
and are neither taught nor permitted into the religious practices.
The Alawis adapt to different political and religious environments
like a chameleon, they reject Islams sacred law, the Sharia,
and permit activities forbidden by Islam such as sanitary practices,
dietary restrictions, sexual customs, and religious rituals.
They rarely adhere to fasting, almsgiving, or pilgrimage to Mecca
which they actually consider idol worship.
- This strange sect has no formal prayers or places of worship,
and builds no religious structures other than shrine tombs. Their
rise to power in Syria is somewhat of a mystery and a fluke
of history, and is rooted in the favor the French governors
of the territory showed them after WWI. Today the Alawites
time appears to be up now as the domestic and international pressures
rise daily. Their options to suppress the unrest and avoid being
lynched by the mob are diminishing with each passing day, and
the Spirit of God is warning that the Syrian Alawite regime,
desperately clinging to power, may resort to play its last card
soon which is to attack Israel as a diversion. This option has
proven itself in the past. Source: Hollis Caravetta E-mail: Holliscar@aol.com

March, the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints' (LDS)
governing First Presidency issued an unequivocal mandate to its
members: Do not submit names of Jewish Holocaust victims or celebrities
for proxy baptism. Doing so could cost Mormons access to their
church's genealogical data or even their good standing in the

"Without exception, church members must not submit for proxy

- HOW CLOSE ARE WE TO THE THIRD TEMPLE??
- March 2012 Issue B Many people would be surprised to find
out that extensive preparations for
the building of the Third Temple are already underway by an organization
called The Temple Institute, which is located in
the Jewish quarter of Jerusalems walled Old City. It is
an Orthodox organization dedicated to the controversial endeavor
of establishing the Holy Temple of God on Mount Moriah in Jerusalem,
something they view as a Biblical imperative.
- As part of its mandate, the Temple Institute is actively
working on the restoration and construction of the sacred vessels
necessary for use in service for the Holy Temple. These are no
mere replicas or models, but authentic vessels, made from gold,
copper, silver and wood. Included among these are gold and silver
vessels used in the incense and sacrificial services, the tziz
zahav (golden crown) of the Cohen HaGadol (High Priest), and
the Levitical musical instruments.
- The three vessels most vital to Temple service have also
been completed and stand ready: the menorah (a seven branched
candelabra), the Table of Showbread, and the Incense Altarall
made of gold. The choshen (breastplate), ephod, and tziz (crown)
also stand ready for service in the Holy Temple. Currently underway
and nearing completion after years of painstaking work and research
is the sacred uniform of the Cohen HaGadol (High Priest). This
solid gold menorah is one of three vessels vital to the Temple
- Rabbi Abi Yisrael Ariel is the founder of the Temple Institute
of Jerusalem and is spearheading this project.. He is also a
renowned Biblical scholar and author of several Hebrew books,
including the Atlas of the Biblical Boundaries of the Land of
Israel. He believes that each and every generation of Jews is
obliged to do all they can to rebuild the Holy Temple.
- Rabbi Ariels convictions run counter to some Orthodox
Jews who believe that we must wait patiently for the Messiah
(Moshiach) to come before the Temple may be rebuilt. As a soldier
in the Israeli Defense Forces paratrooper brigade, he was
one of the first soldiers to reach the Temple Mount when it was
liberated by Israel in the Six Day War of 1967. On June 7, 1967,
for the first time in almost 1900 years, Jerusalem came back
under Jewish control, and Rabbi Ariel was there. At that time,
he says, the vision was birthed in his heart to do all in his
power to assist in the rebuilding of the Holy Temple. Twenty-one
days later, on June 28, 1967 the Knesset passed a decree annexing
East Jerusalem, thereby bringing the entire city of Jerusalem
back under Jewish control.
- IS SYRIA READYING TO HIT ISRAEL? (Arutz Sheva)
March 2012 Issue B Syrian President Bashar Assad has ordered
the heads of his military to hit Israel with a barrage of missiles
should there be any foreign intervention in Syria, a Jordanian
news website reported. According to the site, Our Countrys
News, Assad gave the order in a secret meeting with the heads
of the Syrian army in light of his fear of a U.S. military strike
in Syria. The report said that Assad ordered that if any military
action is started against Syria, the Syrian army should respond
by firing missiles into Israel, with a particular emphasis on
Israeli military airports.
- The report added that an operations room has been opened
in Damascus and that it is continuously manned by officers from
Syria and Iran, as well as by Hizbullah terrorists, all of whom
coordinate their military operations in the event of external
military intervention in Syria. A similar operations room has
been opened in Tehran and is manned by Iranian as well as by
Hizbullah terrorists. Hizbullah has also opened a similar operations
room in Lebanon, said the Jordanian website, and Iran and Hizbullah
have promised Syria to launch missiles at Israel from their territories
- Defense Minister Ehud Barak recently warned that sophisticated
weapons could be transferred from Syria to Lebanon and to Hizbullah
should Assad fall. Major General Yair Golan, head of the Northern
Command, has also warned that Assads fall will result in
Hizbullahs taking over his arsenal of advanced missiles.
There is a very real danger that if Assads regime
falls apart, his arsenal of advanced weapons, including ground-to-sea
missiles and aerial defense systems, will fall into the hands
of Hizbullah and other radical groups, the senior general
said in a recent interview. http://www.wordfromyerushalaim.com/
- ISRAEL'S MISSING RED LINES
- 10-27-2011 Word From Yerushalaim - With each successive concession
it is obvious that Israel's leaders are on a dangerous road which
most definitely is putting Israel in a most dangerous position
concerning her ongoing security and existence. The Lord is the
only hope for Israel, and we who are called by His name must
continue to be watchmen on the walls of Jerusalem. Crying out
in prayer Lord save Your people Israel. Yesterday I had the opportunity
of meeting with a group of faithful warriors from France. They
have come to stand in prayer over Israel's borders and to prophecy
Israel's destiny in the Lord. Thank you all for standing with
God's plans for His people (also grafted) for together in prayer
His perfect plan shall not be defeated.
ISRAEL'S MISSING RED LINES
Yoel Meltzer Published:10.26.11 Alarmingly, over time Israeli
leaders have withdrawn from most of our red lines
Long before the deal or immediately following it, Israel should
have declared any of the following: the Israeli military will
respond immediately and overwhelmingly to any future kidnapping;
Israel will not supply any food, electricity, medical supplies
or other essential items to Gaza in the event of a future kidnapping
emanating from there; any future prisoner swaps will be on an
equal basis one for one. The fact that Israel doesn't make such
declarations is indicative of a much larger problem plaguing
the Jewish state, namely that it has no red lines. For instance,
once upon a time Israel's leaders proudly declared that it does
not negotiate with terrorists. Yet over the course of years this
was modified to "Israel does not release prisoners with
blood on their hands." Needless to say, subsequent prisoner
swaps proved that this red line was just as hollow as its predecessors.
The problem, however, is not limited to negotiating with kidnappers.
For example, in the past, nearly every political and military
leader agreed that the Golan Heights was not negotiable because
of its strategic importance to Israel. However, the alleged strategic
necessity of maintaining the Golan Heights faded away as many
of the same leaders began saying that Israel can survive without
the Golan. Thus, another purported Israeli red line simply vanished
into thin air.
Similar reversals were also witnessed in Israel's position vis-a
-vis the sensitive issues of a united Jerusalem and control of
the Temple Mount as both of these one-time untouchables were
opened to negotiations by former prime ministers Ehud Barak and
Perhaps even more alarming, Israel's red line of how much Arab
hostility it is willing to absorb before responding with due
force has changed dramatically over the last 18 years, since
the Oslo Accords. For instance, there was Ariel Sharon's somewhat
astonishing policy of "restraint is strength," initiated
following the deadly terrorist attack on the Dolphinarium in
2001 that left 21 teenagers dead.
Moreover, it was only after hundreds more were killed in numerous
terrorist attacks that Israel finally embarked on Operation Defensive
Shield in March 2002 in order to destroy the terrorist infrastructure
in Judea and Samaria. Similarly, it was only after thousands
of missiles were fired at Jewish communities close to the Gaza
border that Israel finally reentered Gaza at the end of 2008
as part of Operation Cast Lead.
In the face of all these crumbling red lines, it should be clear
that any Israeli threat to the Arabs that is not acted upon is
interpreted by the Arabs as yet another sign that Israel is growing
progressively weaker, a perception which in turn further deteriorates
Israel's deterrence capability.
In this light one can fully appreciate the damage done by former
Prime Minister Ehud Barak when he failed to act upon his promise
to respond with might to any act of aggression by Hezbollah following
our pullout from Lebanon in 2000. Not only did the aggression
happen, as Hezbollah dashed across the border kidnapping and
eventually killing three Israeli soldiers, but our minimal response
most likely emboldened Arafat and the Palestinians to raise the
level of terror during the bloody Second Intifada.
These are just a few of the many examples of Israeli red lines
that have been falling apart in recent years. Moreover, it is
most likely an Arab understanding of this which allows the Arabs
to remain obstinate on nearly all positions, confident that Israel
will eventually cave in. Witness both the current government's
ongoing insistence that Abbas recognize Israel as a Jewish state
and his continued refusal to concede.
Sure enough, Abbas' gamble that Israel would eventually abandon
yet another red line proved correct as Israel recently agreed
to the Quartet's request to begin negotiations without any preconditions
such as the recognition of a Jewish state.
The result of all this is that the Jewish people find themselves
in a position where the leaders of Israel either avoid stating
any clear red lines, as they know they'll never live up to them,
or worse, they declare red lines and then simply disregard them.
However, unlike other countries such as the United States, where
a lack of red lines is not a cause for alarm, in this neck of
the woods a lack of firm red lines can lead to one's undoing.

THE FORGOTTEN CHRISTIANS OF THE EAST
JPost.com - By CAROLINE B. GLICK - 10/10/2011 23:21 - It is unclear
what either Western governments or Western churches think they
are achieving by turning a blind eye to the persecution of Christians
in the Muslim world.
On Sunday night, Egyptian Copts staged what was supposed to be
a peaceful vigil at Egypts state television headquarters
in Cairo. The 1,000 Christians represented the ancient Christian
community of some 8 million whose presence in Egypt predates
the establishment of Islam by several centuries. They gathered
in Cairo to protest the recent burning of two churches by Islamic
mobs and the rapid escalation of state-supported violent attacks
on Christians by Muslim groups since the overthrow of former
Egyptian president Hosni Mubarak in February.
- According to Coptic sources, the protesters Sunday night
were beset by Islamic attackers who were rapidly backed up by
military forces. Between 19 and 40 Copts were killed by soldiers
and Muslim attackers. They were run over by military vehicles,
beaten, shot and dragged through the streets of Cairo.
- State television Sunday night reported only that three soldiers
had been killed. According to al-Ahram Online, the military attacked
the studios of al-Hurra television on Sunday night to block its
broadcast of information on the military assault on the Copts.
Apparently the attempt to control information about what happened
worked. Mondays news reports about the violence gave little
indication of the identity of the dead or wounded. They certainly
left untold the story of what actually happened in Cairo on Sunday
night. In a not unrelated event, Lebanons Maronite Catholic
Patriarch Bechara Rai caused a storm two weeks ago. During an
official visit to Paris, Rai warned French President Nicolas
Sarkozy that the fall of the Assad regime in Syria could be a
disaster for Christians in Syria and throughout the region. Today
the Western-backed Syrian opposition is dominated by the Muslim
Brotherhood. Rai cautioned that the overthrow of President Bashar
Assad could lead to civil war and the establishment of an Islamic
regime. Continued: http://www.jpost.com/Opinion/Columnists/Article.aspx?id=241236
