- ATHEIST GEORGE SOROS: "THE MAIN STUMBLING BLOCK IS ISRAEL..."
- February 5, 2011 - Wealthy atheist, George Soros, wrote an
interesting piece for The Washington Post on February 3. In the
piece titled "Why Obama has to get Egypt right," Soros,
who is the Chairman of Soros Fund Management and the Open Society
Foundations, makes some absurd claims that he believes are necessary
for democracy to effectively come from the Egyptian revolution.
- Soros stated in his piece, "The Muslim Brotherhood's
cooperation with Mohamed ElBaradei, the Nobel laureate who is
seeking to run for president, is a hopeful sign that it intends
to play a constructive role in a democratic political system.
As regards contagion, it is more likely to endanger the enemies
of the United States - Syria and Iran - than our allies, provided
that they are willing to move out ahead of the avalanche.
The main stumbling block is Israel. In reality, Israel has as
much to gain from the spread of democracy in the Middle East
as the United States has. But Israel is unlikely to recognize
its own best interests because the change is too sudden and carries
too many risks. And some U.S. supporters of Israel are more rigid
and ideological than Israelis themselves. Fortunately, Obama
is not beholden to the religious right, which has carried on
a veritable vendetta against him. The American Israel Public
Affairs Committee is no longer monolithic or the sole representative
of the Jewish community. The main danger is that the Obama administration
will not adjust its policies quickly enough to the suddenly changed
- I am, as a general rule, wary of revolutions. But in the
case of Egypt, I see a good chance of success. As a committed
advocate of democracy and open society, I cannot help but share
in the enthusiasm that is sweeping across the Middle East. I
hope President Obama will expeditiously support the people of
Egypt. My foundations are prepared to contribute what they can.
In practice, that means establishing resource centers for supporting
the rule of law, constitutional reform, fighting corruption and
strengthening democratic institutions in those countries that
request help in establishing them, while staying out of those
countries where such efforts are not welcome."
- It is shocking that someone would side with terrorist organizations
like the Muslim Brotherhood and state that Israel -the only democracy
in the Middle East- is the stumbling block to peace in the region.

- THE TINY NATION OF ISRAEL MOVING AWAY FROM THE U.S.?
- July 12, 2013 - Jim Willie CB, GoldenJackass.com - "....
Death of King Abdullah and sunset of Petro-Dollar: Someday will
be revealed the death of Abdullah, which many expert analysts
(not the State Dept clowns or Wall Street harlots) expect will
result in the fall of the House of Saud. Accompanying his death
will be the demise of the Petro-Dollar, which has served as the
critical foundation for the USDollar for 40 years. Actually,
a new energy cartel is forming. It is the current powerful new
force emerging as the Natural Gas Coop, with key players Gazprom
of Russia, Qatar and Iran in the Persian Gulf (strange bedfellows),
Turkmenistan, and Israel. (NOTE: This act alone will cause the
collapse of the US economy and put Russia and Israel in partnership
agreements! The US is about to fall!)
- Growing Eastern energy pipelines: Called Pipeline-STAN by
some analysts like Pepe Escobar, an excellent analyst whose work
appears on Asia Times, featured on the Hat Trick Letter. A key
pipeline through Syria is called the Shiite Pipeline by the Jackass.
The big new pipeline with conflict and controversy is the Iran-Pakistan
pipeline. The USGovt is trying to play the same losing game,
by banning banks that cooperate with its funded construction.
But China has entered the fray, guaranteeing its full funding.
Pakistan is no longer friendly to the United States, not after
thousands of civilian deaths by USMilitary drones. Russia is
the chief architect of energy pipelines, for natural gas, for
crude oil. They will supply Europe and Britain, and thus turn
the alliances of Europe eastward toward Russia. The United States
will be increasingly isolated.
- Movement by Israel away from the US fold: The tiny nation
is fast entering into a Russian alliance, starting with the Tamor
floating as platform, extending into hidden deals with Putin
of Russia. The Tamor natural gas output is under contract to
Gazprom, a giant surplus assuring significant capital inflow
to their economy. Also, a notable number of Israeli immigrants
are of Russian descent, estimated between 25% and 40%, maybe
higher. The nation might sound like a US partner in the Syria
battles, but not so, not really. .." The whole artile at:

Published September 06, 2010 09:01 - A new five year plan has
been hammered out and signed during a meeting of the Russian
and Israeli defense ministers in Moscow. The agreement boosts
military ties between the two nations to help them fight common
threats, such as terrorism and the proliferation of weapons of
mass destruction. The agreement inked today by Russian Defense
Minister Anatoly Serdyukov and his Israeli counterpart Ehud Barak
sketches out the further military co-operation between the two
countries for the next five years. Specifically one of the highlights
of the document is that Russia will buy 12 UAVs from Israel.
The Russian minister said that 50 technicians are already being
taught to operate them. There was also a talk to build a joint
facility where those drones will be built, because Russia expressed
desire to participate in manufacturing of the UAVs. The document
also sketches out details of further military cooperation: an
exchange of experience and information in spheres of mutual interests,
which includes issues of international security. It also dwells
on development of military education, medicine, physical training

- ISRAEL BEATS DRUM LOUDER: 'WON'T WAIT UNTIL IT'S TOO LATE
TO ATTACK IRAN
'Our clocks are ticking' faster than the US, says Israeli PM
Jacob Chamberlain, staff writer - Published on Monday, July 15,
2013 by Common Dreams
Revamping his threat to attack Iran over a supposed nuclear weapons
program, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu warned Sunday
that he is still considering a strike in the not too distant
future, with or without the U.S.'s consent, stating: "I
won't wait until it's too late."
- "Our clocks are ticking at a different pace. We're closer
than the United States. We're more vulnerable. And therefore,
we'll have to address this question of how to stop Iran, perhaps
before the United States does," he said.
- Tehran has consistently insisted that its nuclear program
is solely for energy purposes. Israel has continually failed
to prove otherwise.
- The Obama administration has thus far resisted Netanyahu's
temptation, citing inconclusive evidence, despite attempts by
Congress and the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC)
to push the U.S. towards all-out war.
- The Obama administration has, however, alongside its European
allies, continued to impose devastating sanctions on the country,
which have essentially crippled Iran's economy and created an
ongoing health crisis.
- "They're edging up to the red line. They haven't crossed
it yet," Netanyahu said in reference to his now infamous
red-line graph. He, however, failed once again to provide his
audience with new evidence. Continued:

From Associated Press - July 19, 2013 2:08 PM EST - AMMAN, Jordan
(AP) Israeli and Palestinian officials will meet soon
in Washington to work out final details on relaunching Mideast
peace negotiations for the first time in five years, U.S. Secretary
of State John Kerry said Friday.
- The announcement fell short of an outright resumption of
the negotiations, which would tackle the toughest issues of the
Israeli-Palestinian conflict. But after days of meeting with
both sides, Kerry told reporters in the Jordanian capital that
they had agreed on "a basis" for the talks.
- "We have reached an agreement that establishes the basis
for resuming direct final status negotiations between the Palestinians
and the Israelis," he said. "This is a significant
and welcome step forward."
- "The agreement is still in the process of being formalized,"
he said, refusing to give any details on what had been agreed
so far. "If everything goes as expected," Israeli and
Palestinians negotiators will hold initial talks "within
the next week or so," he said.
- Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas, who met with Kerry in
the West Bank town of Ramallah earlier Friday, said "lengthy
talks ... have resulted in the Palestinians accepting the resumption
- In a statement, Abbas said "some details still need
to be worked out," but that Israeli and Palestinian officials
could be invited to Washington for talks in the coming days.
- WHEN PEOPLES OF THE WORLD BEGIN SPEAKING OF "PEACE".
Jews have been dying under the crushing burden of the world's
peace for a long time now.
Is this newest push toward a "peace" treaty with the
Palestinians going to create the same genocidal result?
NEWS BRIEF: "Jews
Die When World Talks 'Peace': Jews must fight the betrayal
of the land, Israel National News, July 22, 2013 - "A fiendish
aspect of the Nazi war on the Jewish people was the scheme to
dupe the Jews into cooperating in their own destruction. This
is the real irony of 'Israeli officials' now praising Obama and
Kerrys efforts and opening the door to the Holocaust denier Mahmoud
Abbas. The 'peace process' is going to create a nine mile wide
concentration camp. Stop it now, or one day the Diaspora Jews
will have to create a second Holocaust Museum."
This author is entirely correct from a strictly human perspective.
Creating a Palestinian State inside tiny Israel will create a
situation where Israel cannot be defended conventionally. President
Nixon spoke to this reality shortly before leaving office. He
said that Israel could never agree to a Palestinian State, because
that new hostile Arab nation would be so close to Israel that
no military could defend her. Nixon likened the creation of a
Palestinian State from within Israel to a person having a sharp
knife just inches from his heart.
This is Conventional Wisdom and is accepted by most everyone.
However, Cutting Edge has a somewhat different viewpoint, one
that is Biblical and consistent with prophecy. We believe the
following events are about to happen as the result of this controversy
over a Palestinian State.
#1 - We understand that Global Illuminized Freemasonry is really
committed to the existence of Israel because their religion demands
that they build the Third Temple -- "Read full details in
entitled, "Fervent Masonic Desire To Build Solomon's Temple")
#2 - Consistent with the understanding that the truth lies in
the opposite direction of the Public Rhetoric, we believe that
all these negotiations will result in the utter annihilation
of the Palestinians and the elevation of Israel to superpower
status within the Middle East. (Read full details in NEWS1558,
entitled, "Breaking Out of the Propaganda Box: Learning
To Discover Truth By Looking In The Opposite Direction")
#3 - This annihilation of the Palestinians is boldly predicted
and is being slowly carried out by Israel cooperating with Western
nations, especially the United States and Great Britain. (Read
full details in NEWS2095.
#4 - Since Israel also wields the "kinetic" weapons
system known as Depleted Uranium, she literally has the capability
of killing tens of millions of enemy soldiers in the twinkling
of an eye. We believe that, once the Palestinians are annihilated,
a wave of incredibly intense hatred toward Israel will erupt
in the hearts and minds of all Muslims throughout the world.
Their armies will begin to march on Israel in fulfillment of
#5 - Once Israel, under God's protection, annihilates Muslims
by the tens of millions, the stage is then set for Russia to
march against Israel herself, in fulfillment of Ezekiel 38-39.
Russia will be determined to finish Israel off, since her weapons
in the hands of Islamic soldiers has proven spectacularly ineffective.
This scenario is the one which is slowly unfolding in the Middle
East, not the fairy tale known as Conventional Wisdom. Can you
"think outside the box"?

- THE PALESTINIAN AUTHORITY PRESIDENT, ABBAS, HAS FINALLY SPELLED
OUT IN DETAIL
- HOW HE INTENDS TO USE THE "PEACE TREATY" WITH ISRAEL
AS A "TROJAN HORSE"!
- According to the precepts of the Prophet, if Islam finds
itself in a position of weakness with an enemy, they are to reach
a false peace with that enemy until they can accumulate enough
strength to destroy them.

"negotiations" with Israel. We now thank Abbas for

Authority Minister: New peace talks will help us conquer Israel

- "... Palestinian Authority Minister of Religious Affairs
Mahmoud Al-Habbash reassured everyone last week that the political
peace process is just a ruse, and part of a larger scheme to
defeat their enemy ... Al-Habbash compared the US-driven peace
negotiations to the Hudaybiyyah Peace Treaty concluded between
Islam's prophet Mohammed and the Quraish tribe of Mecca. Mohammed
knew that only a more measured approach would lead to ultimate
victory. Two years after signing the treaty, Mohammed's forces
had gained enough strength and he launched the brutal conquest
- " 'This is the example and this is the model' that the
Palestinian leadership is following, Al-Habbash acknowledged."
- From the lips of this prominent Palestinian Authority cleric,
we see that they plan to use negotiations with Israel for a Palestinian
State as a "Trojan Horse" ruse, whereby they can get
some land now, while they build their military power so they
can eradicate Israel later.
- This plan is a good one, except the Palestinians have no
knowledge of the Almighty God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. They
have no understanding that Old Testament prophecies written 2,600
years ago foretelling their complete annihilation at God's hands
are now slowly grinding toward completion.
- Listen to just one prophetic statement:
- "... I am about to make Jerusalem a cup or bowl of reeling
to all the peoples round about ... in that day I will make Jerusalem
a burdensome stone for all peoples; all who lift it or burden
themselves with it shall be sorely wounded. And all the nations
of the earth shall come and gather together against it. In that
day, says the Lord, I will smite every horse of the armies that
contend against Jerusalem with terror and panic and his rider
with madness ... In that day will the Lord guard and defend the
inhabitants of Jerusalem ... I will make it My aim to destroy
all the nations that come against Jerusalem." (Zechariah
12:2-9; Parallel Bible, KJV/Amplified Bible Commentary)
- God even prophesied that, at the End of the Age, after Israel
had returned to her land, efforts would be made to divide Israel.
- "I will gather all nations and will bring them down
into the Valley of Jehoshaphat, and there will I deal with and
execute judgment upon them for [their treatment of] My people
and of My heritage Israel, whom they have scattered among the
nations and because they have divided My land." (Joel 3:2;
- God is preparing His sword of judgment for all the nations
who hate and contend with Israel.

You speak in your language but the listener hears you in his

And the whole earth was of one language, and of one speech
And they said, Come, let us build us a city and a tower, whose
top may reach unto heaven
And the Lord came down to see
the city and the tower
And the Lord said, Behold, the people
is one, and they have all one language; and this they begin to
do: and now nothing will be restrained from them, which they
have imagined to do. Go to, let us go down, and there confound
their language, that they may not understand one anothers

the face of all the earth: and they left off to build the city.

a tower to heaven, and a divine decision to punish that Tower

app) hears what youve just said in his or her own language.
Right now, speakers of English, French, Spanish, Italian, Portuguese,
German, Russian, and Mandarin can call each other and have their
conversations automatically translated; on the agenda are Japanese,
Arabic, Korean, and Hebrew. More languages, including other Chinese
dialects, will follow, eventually covering most global language
