CNBC: “Usually, when it’s a terror attack, they’ve claimed responsibility by now.

The most obvious explanation for the silence from jihadists and other terror groups is that they didn’t do it. “The big possibility is that it was just an accident, and something happened that took the plane down quickly, probably incapacitating the pilots and making it impossible for them to call in a mayday,” said Scott Stewart, vice president of tactical analysis at research firm Stratfor.

But there’s a possibility — and historical precedent for the idea — that no terror group has claimed the destruction of the flight from Paris to Cairo because it either wants to protect operatives it has established inside transportation networks, or it has developed new techniques that it wants to replicate to more devastating effect later.

It’s happened before.”

Opinion: And there are more possibilities:

On Monday the UK Daily Mail along with the ME website, Al Arabiya, made extraordinary claims:

  • Two (Turkish) pilots claim they saw green lights pass by their jet above Istanbul 
  • The lights came as their plane approached Ataturk Airport from Bodrum at 11:30pm
  • An hour later the Egyptair flight crashed 500 miles away in Mediterranean
  • Mystery still surrounds what caused aircraft to crash killing 66 on board

Which brings to mind that Jesus stated that the days just prior to His return would be like the days before the flood: “And as it was in the days of Noah, so it will be also in the days of the Son of Man.” Luke 17:26

To get an idea of what was happening just before the flood waters covered the earth (Genesis 7), we can look at Genesis 6:1-4:

Now it came to pass, when men began to multiply on the face of the earth, and daughters were born to them, that the sons of God saw the daughters of men, that they were beautiful; and they took wives for themselves of all whom they chose.

And the Lord said, “My Spirit shall not strive with man forever, for he is indeed flesh; yet his days shall be one hundred and twenty years.”  There were giants on the earth in those days, and also afterward, when the sons of God came in to the daughters of men and they bore children to them. Those were the mighty men who were of old, men of renown.”

The supernatural evil that brought on the destruction of the antediluvian world deserves our attention today.

The Times of Israel: “Ahmad Karimpour, a senior adviser to the Iranian Revolutionary Guards’ elite unit al-Quds Force, said if Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei gave the order to destroy Israel, the Iranian military had the capacity to do so quickly.

We test-fired a missile with a range of 2,000 kilometers and a margin of error of eight meters, Brigadier General Ali Abdollahi was quoted as saying at a Tehran science conference. The eight-meter margin means the “missile enjoys zero error,” he told conference participants.

Iran in March tested ballistic missiles, including two with the words “Israel must be wiped off the earth” emblazoned on them, according to the US and other Western powers.”

joyOpinion: Just look at the joy in the faces of Haman’s descendants as they plot to finish the job (Genesis 27:41) that the patriarch Esau started.

But like Esau, the plot will fail. When Iran finally does take up arms with the Gog Magog alliance (Ezekiel 38:1-6) against Israel, judgment will come like this:

“You shall fall upon the mountains of Israel, you and all your troops and the peoples who are with you; I will give you to birds of prey of every sort and to the beasts of the field to be devoured.  You shall fall on the open field; for I have spoken,” says the Lord God “And I will send fire on Magog and on those who live in security in the coastlands. Then they shall know that I am the Lord.” Ezekiel 39:4-6

The Daily Beast: “Once a bane of the U.S. military during the occupation of Iraq, and a warlord whom the Pentagon once came within minutes of killing for his role in orchestrating American combat deaths, al-Sadr is now the undisputed kingmaker of Iraqi politics, a demagogue with a gift for manipulating a national media and opportunistically capitalizing on national crises, attributes which invited half-serious comparisons to another rising political juggernaut.

Just like Trump, he is not entirely illegitimate,” said Ali Khedery, once the longest continuously serving U.S. diplomat in Iraq. “Sadr represents millions of people and those millions of people have voted for him and his bloc repeatedly since 2003. His family has a long and very important history in Iraq, particularly over the past century.”

Vason’s Opinion: Nationalism is born out of a frustrated populace looking for a leader to right their wrongs and fix their problems- typically economically.  Sometimes though, people are looking for payback.

Enter Mullah Atari:  Moqtada al-Sadr is just one of many charismatic opportunists riding high on a wave of anger and his numerous followers are looking for order in their lives – along with payback.  These acolytes of the cleric want payback against a financially corrupt Iraqi government, the enemy within known as ISIS, and of course, America who they view as a global puppet master.  Sound familiar?  Change some of the names and circumstances and you’ve got the recipe for the rise of Trump.

A similar formula is fomenting nationalism in Europe and will pave the way for the antichrist to come to power (Daniel 7:23-24).
