ISIS-gunman-in-plaza-reutersBreitbart: “Democrats are more afraid of global warming than the threat posed by the Islamic State terrorists, according to a new Pew Research Center poll.

The poll shows that 68 percent of Democrats believe that global climate change is a major threat to the United States, compared to just 25 percent of Republicans.

In contrast, 65 percent of Democrats believe that ISIS is a major threat, three points less than climate change. Seventy-eight percent of Republicans cited ISIS as a major threat – + a partisan difference of 13 points.

Opinion: Now we know why there is no plan to stop ISIS.

And who do the Democrats think should monitor emissions? Why the United Nations, of course, that America-hating body to which the Obama administration has entrusted the internet and gun control.

If the president isn’t campaigning to becoming the first president of the UN when his term expires, I will be amazed.

ap559159650340Business Insider: “Russian President Vladimir Putin for the first time on Friday publicly addressed pro-Russian rebels fighting in southeastern Ukraine, praising their “major success” inside Ukraine.

The Kremlin released a late-night statement from Putin on its website in which he appealed to the militia of “Novorossyia,” or “New Russia.”

Opinion: Putin has a plan. The Russian Czar is empire building while the US is dithering.

East Ukraine is first on the list of the New Russia nations. Moldova is thought to be next and whether Putin knows it or not, by moving to take East Ukraine, he is setting the stage for West Ukraine to revert back to its 1st century roots and join the EU.

The Roman Empire is re-forming precisely as Daniel 2:40-43, 9:26 prophesied.

A last days movement of geopolitical musical chairs is playing out for all the world to see, in preparation for the final wars. It is important to keep in mind that there will eventually be 4 power blocks and that Russia (king of the North Daniel 11:40 Ezekiel 38:1-2) plays a key role, the US does not.

Excerpt Bible Prophecy 101 (front page of website)

KING OF THE NORTH (GOG-MAGOG ALLIANCE): Russia, Iran, Turkey and the Arab-Islamic alliance (Ezek. 38-39)
KINGS OF THE SOUTH: Egypt, Africa and Islamic North Africa (Dan. 11:40)
KINGS OF THE EAST: China and Southeast Asia (Rev. 16:12)
REVIVED ROMAN EMPIRE/WESTERN ALLIANCE/BEAST ARMY OF ANTICHRIST: (Dan: 2:40, 7:7) The Bible says that the revived Roman Empire will be led by the antichrist. (Rev. 17:12)

jimmy-carter-fist-APBreitbart: “Former President Jimmy Carter is the featured keynote speaker at this weekend’s Islamic Society of North America (ISNA) convention at Detroit’s Cobo Hall.

The Justice Department recently implicated ISNA, which claims to be America’s largest Muslim organization, as the lead conduit in a scheme to illegally pass on $12 million to Hamas, the Palestinian terror group established to annihilate the State of Israel. Hamas is officially designated a terrorist group by the US government.”

Opinion: Racism is condemned against any and all nationalities, except one, Judaism.

A review of a 1991 book “The Oldest Hatred” by Robert S. Wistrich:

“The book predicted the resurgence of the ancient hatred; it was unfortunately correct. In the introduction Wistrich discusses the problematic term ‘Anti-Semitism’ then briefly explores its continuity and development down the ages. He does not believe that history provides definitive answers to the Why? of the phenomenon but emphasizes the importance of understanding the How? of it. The most enduring conspiracy theory of all times, it’s a shape shifter and nothing seems able to stop it.”

Neither the Reformation nor the Enlightenment put an end to anti-Semitism. Neither the author nor most Christians today understand its roots. Wistrich missed the most important point, that while history has not provided definitive answers to anti-Semitism - Bible prophecy does.

In Genesis 12:3, God promised to bless those who bless Abraham and his descendants after him, and curse those who cursed him and his descendants. That covenant began a great battle that had been prophesied in Genesis 3:15 between the ruler of this world, Satan, and the coming Savior, Jesus Christ.

When God changed Abram’s name to Abraham (Genesis 17:5) and created a holy people unto Himself, Satan launched an attack, because out of Abraham’s bloodline, the Messiah would come.

Replacement Theology, or Supersessionism, essentially teaches that the Church has replaced Israel in God’s plan and that the covenant that God made with Abraham was finished.

All the different views of the relationship between the Church and Israel can be divided into two camps: either the Church is a continuation of Israel (replacement/covenant theology), or the Church is completely different and distinct from Israel (Dispensational Theology).

Replacement Theology became the position of the early Church during the time of Augustine (A.D. 354-430), who popularized it in his book The City of God. Initially, Augustine claimed that he was a Chiliast, one who believed in the literal thousand-year reign of Christ on the earth, the basic view of Premillennialism today.

Having come to the conclusion that this view was “inferior” and “carnal,” he adopted the position that the reign of Christ should be much more “spiritual” and it would occur during this present Church Age.  Therefore, the view of the Church was that the destruction of Jerusalem and the Temple in AD 70 was brought about divinely, that God had ordained the end of unbelieving Jewish Israel. The prophecies of condemnation and judgment, however, still remain for national Israel and the Jewish people.

Major Christian denominations have advanced either Replacement or Covenantal theologies despite major problems with these views, i.e., completely ignoring the supernatural survival of the Jewish people, and Israel’s prophesied rebirth in one day among the gentile nations (Isaiah 66: 7-8).

The miracle of Israel's rebirth

The Times Of Israel: “Exactly how bad are Israel-US relations today? Who the Hellfire knows. What is clear is that two weeks after the revelation that the US had added an additional level of scrutiny to resupplying the IDF with weapons, business was anything but usual regarding the military-to-military relationship upon which Israel relies.

Washington has, in fact, been extremely closed-lipped about the Hellfires.

Asked about the Hellfires almost two weeks ago, State Department Deputy Spokesperson Marie Harf said that “we generally don’t talk about specific deliveries after they’re requested and before they’re delivered, but I will say that things are being — things that have been requested from Israel are — we’re taking a little bit of additional care now given the situation, and if there were requests for such missiles, that would fall under that.”

Opinion: Israel is in a tense ceasefire in the south, while trying to stop Al Qaeda’s Nusra Front fighters and its Sinai arm (Ansar Beit Al-Madis) in the north, who just happen to be tied into Hamas in the south.

At last count, there are over 30 al Qaeda factions operating all around Israel.

The US, Jordan, and Israel are quietly backing the mixed bag of Syrian rebel factions which yesterday seized control of the Syrian side of the Quneitra crossing, the only transit point between Israeli and Syrian Golan.

With all that going on, the US is dithering, a common occurrence these past years, on sending Hellfire missiles.

It is no wonder that terror leaders are so arrogant.

Joel Rosenberg: The President of the United States has absolutely no idea what he is doing in the Middle East. Mr. Obama apparently has plenty of time to play golf. Yet he refuses to invest the time and energy necessary to come up with a plan to stop — much less defeat — ISIS, despite the genocidal attacks their forces are engaged in and the grave threat they pose to Israel and our Arab allies.

“We don’t have a strategy yet,” President Obama admitted during a White House press conference on Thursday.

Why in the world not?

Others have developed sound strategies. Here are a few:

Opinion: Unfortunately, the president has a strategy on Russia’s incursion into Ukraine – Nothing, Nada, Zip-p-p

Putin must be hysterical…

GolanSyrianAir

Debkafile: “The US, Jordan and Israel are quietly backing the mixed bag of some 30 Syrian rebel factions which Tuesday, Aug. 26, seized control of the Syrian side of the Quneitra crossing, the only transit point between Israeli and Syrian Golan. However – here comes the rub – Al Qaeda elements have permeated all those factions.

The crossing is formally under the control of UNDOF, an international peacekeeping force, which too is falling apart as contingents are recalled by their governments.

Damascus hit back at the rebels Thursday, Aug. 28, by sending the Syrian air force to destroy the new rebel positions. This was a flagrant contravention of Israel-Syrian armistice agreements. The Israeli air force might have been justified in scrambling to combat the Syrian air incursion, but was not ordered to do so.

This appeared to contradict a fact which Israel has kept very dark: The 30 or so Syrian rebel offensive to wrest Quneitra would have stood no chance without Israel’s aid – not just in medical care for their injured, but also in limited supplies of arms, intelligence and food.

Israel acted as a member, along with the US and Jordan, of a support system for rebel groups fighting in southern Syria. Their efforts are coordinated through a war-room which the Pentagon established last year near Amman. The US, Jordanian and Israeli officers manning the facility determine in consultation which rebel factions are provided with reinforcements from the special training camps run for Syrian rebels in Jordan, and which will receive arms.

All three governments understand perfectly that, notwithstanding all their precautions, some of their military assistance is bound to percolate to Al Qaeda’s Syrian arm, Jabhat Al-Nusra, which is fighting in rebel ranks. Neither Washington or Jerusalem or Amman would be comfortable in admitting they are arming Al Qaeda’s Nusra Front in southern Syria.”

67 landsOpinion: We wrote on this yesterday. Al Nusra, weakened by the ISIS advance, is seeking control of the Golan Heights, a natural buffer which protects Israel from Syrian, al Qaeda and Hezbollah attacks.

In the Six Day war of 1967, Israel miraculously defeated Egypt, Jordan, and Syria taking back the God-given defense buffers of the West Bank, East Jerusalem, the Gaza Strip, the Golan Heights, and the Sinai Peninsula.

All five areas are critical to Israel’s survival demonstrated by the disastrous land for peace arrangements in Gaza. Progressive left governments have been critical of Israel for holding on to these lands.  These criticisms were strengthened by President Obama’s May 19, 2011 speech suggesting that Israel revert back to the ’67 borders cutting the tiny nation in half.

Following that speech, the push for a two-State solution, in violation of God’s law forbidding the dividing of the land (Joel 3:1-2), came front and center.

That the nations didn’t learn from the Gaza give-back of 2005, and the constant Hamas rocket attacks ever since, is evidence that Satan has blinded the world with anti-Semitism.
