Investors Business Daily Op-Ed:
“Hollywood puts out a lot of rubbish, but now and then something unexpected breaks through. Such as “For Greater Glory,” a film that opens Friday and portrays Christianity, of all things, as heroic. Lead actor Andy Garcia talked with IBD about why it’s different.

After peaceful protests failed, Mexico’s “Cristeros” formed an army to fight the government in the name of defending their religious freedom. The three-year war cost 56,000 lives, but in the end, the Cristeros mostly prevailed.”

YNet News:
“Migros supermarket chain says it doesn’t
support boycott calls by pro-Palestinian groups, but wants to let customers
decide which products they want to buy.”

Opinion:
Talk about a farce. The Swiss do not support boycotts but consider Jewish housing (settlements) in the Jewish capital of Israel, illegal.  

Kind of like: I am pro-life but feel abortion is ok in case of rape, incest or health of the mother. Or, I am a Christian but believe there are many paths to salvation.

Rule of thumb: everything preceding but is a lie.

Yahoo News:
“Iran‘s enrichment of uranium to 20 percent “is our right” and “is not a step towards a bomb,” President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said Wednesday in an interview with the satellite television network France 24.”

Opinion:
Two definitions:
1. Hudna is an Arabic term meaning a temporary “truce” or “armistice” as well as “calm” or “quiet”. A ‘hudna‘ — as it is understood by radical Islam
— is made for strategic tactical reasons rather than for the purposes of
seeking an ultimate peace.

The prophet Mohammad struck a legendary, ten-year hudna with the Quraysh tribe that controlled Mecca in the
seventh century. Over the following two years, Mohammad re-armed and took
advantage of a minor Quraysh infraction to break the ‘hudna‘ and launch the full conquest of Mecca, the holiest
city in Islam.

2. Taqiyya literally means: “Concealing, precaution, guarding.” It is employed in
disguising one’s beliefs, intentions, convictions, ideas, feelings, opinions or
strategies. In practical terms it is manifested as dissimulation, lying,
deceiving, vexing and confounding with the intention of deflecting attention,
foiling or pre-emptive blocking. It is currently employed in fending off and
neutralising any criticism of Islam or Muslims.

Ok, so which is it?

Obama Insults 38 Million Poles

The Telegraph:
“President Obama has a long track record of insulting the Poles. In 2010 he chose to play golf on the day of the funeral of the Polish President Lech Kaczynski, the Polish First Lady, and 94 senior officials who perished in the Smolensk air disaster. Eight months earlier he humiliated Warsaw by pulling out of the agreement over Third Site missile defence installations in Poland and the Czech Republic. And last night Barack Obama caused huge offence in Poland by referring to a Nazi death camp in Poland as “a Polish death camp” while awarding the Presidential Medal of Freedom to a Polish resistance fighter.”
Opinion:
What is it about our allies that our president doesn’t seem to like? First, it was the bust of Churchill snub; then the Israeli PM was left alone while the president dined,  and then there was the Polish missile defense system cancellation to make the Russians happy, and now another insult to Poland.
However, there is one country to which the President has shown great diplomacy and respect… Iran. In the 2009 Iranian revolution the president said that he didn’t want to “meddle.”

CNBC:

“U.S. bond yields are likely to
stay at record lows—and could move even lower—until European policymakers
convince markets they have a grip on the potential contagion threatening the
euro zone’s banking system.”

Opinion:
Risk appetite is deteriorating sharply as hopes for Chinese stimulus measures are diminished and concerns over Spain’s banking problems dominate the markets.
In the US, eurozone fears were compounded after a report showed pending home sales dropped by the most in a year, sending the S&P 500 index down more than 1 per cent. US stocks are on track to close the month of May 6 per cent lower.

Wall Street Journal:
And so it was last week, when the U.S. and its partners arrived in Baghdad for another round of talks with Tehran, confident they were at last about to turn the diplomatic corner. The head of the U.N.’s nuclear watchdog agency had just announced that he and his Iranian counterpart had all but inked a deal to inspect sites suspected of illicit nuclear work. The looming threat of oil sanctions and the possibility of an Israeli strike were said to be weighing heavily on Iranian minds.
The Iranians are in a position of needing to pursue diplomacy, if anything, even more than they did before,” former diplomat Dennis Ross told Mr. Landler. “It’s not like they have any other good news right now.”

Opinion:
Neville Chamberlain’s WWII quote that “National Socialist Germany wants peace because of its fundamental convictions” comes to mind again as Iran prepares for the next Holocaust.
By the way, those are not my words but the words of the president of Iran:
“I want to tell [Western countries] that just as the Soviet Union was wiped out and does not exist anymore, so will the Zionist regime soon be wiped out and humanity will be free.”

Appeasement didn’t work in 1941, and it won’t work in 2012. We know Iran’s role in the war of Ezekiel 38, what we don’t know is the appointed time for the Iranians to be ready. First came the Stuxnet computer virus and now the flame virus. It will be interesting to see how long Iran will be forced to the sidelines as a spectator/benefactor to Arab aggression.

We look for the war of Psalm 83, which does not include Iran as a military power, to be the first of the end time wars.
