summit

Breitbart: Friday saw the close of the of the three-day international summit on violent extremism hosted by the White House.

Coming as it did just a just after the release of ISIS/Islamic State videos on the immolation of Lt Kassasbeh, the Jordanian Royal Air Force pilot, and the slaughter of 21 Egyptian Christians, and the reported death of another US hostage, the timing allowed it potentially to be a perfect platform for a muscular response to the barbarity of the Islamic State, for the announcement of actions akin to the attacks against ISIS launched by King Abdullah II of Jordan and President Sisi of Egypt.

Instead, the President spoke of the real grievances the Muslim world has had with the West, the danger of Islamophobia in the U.S., and the need for more community outreach.

Opinion: The root of terror is not found in jobs, poverty or a two-state solution. It will not be solved by a right of return, removal of a blockade or peaceful negotiations. It is the everlasting hatred that will lead to a series of wars that will signal the end of the age.

Israel living in peace?

Few Bible scholars dispute the war of Ezekiel 38 -39 as a future war. The debate centers around Ezekiel 38:11 calling for Israel to be living in a false sense of security. Since its rebirth in 1948, Israel has had no peace or security.

A future victory over Israel’s Arab neighbors would provide that scenario, especially combined with the fulfillment of Isaiah 17:1,14, the total destruction of the world’s oldest inhabited city, Damascus.

Ezekiel’s war is described as a monumental attack on the mountains of Israel from a 7 nation confederation. The prophet does not leave us guessing and specifically names the armies: Russia, Iran, Turkey, Ethiopia, Somalia, Sudan, and Libya. Ezekiel 38:1-6 NIV

Notice that none of Israel’s Arab neighbors (Psalm 83 nations) are listed – giving further credence to the Psalm 83 nations already having been obliterated in fulfillment of Obadiah 1:18.

Ezekiel tells us that the armies will fall on those mountains (Ezekiel 38:21) and with divine confusion, men’s swords will turn on each other. The victory will once again stun the world.

The key to understanding this war is to know why it happens in the first place and the prophet (Ezekiel 39:22) does not leave us guessing on that either:

“So the house of Israel shall know that I am the Lord their God from that day forward

Do you see that? Ezekiel’s war will lift the veil from the Jews. When that war finishes, the Church must be gone and a peace treaty signed.

The Daily Beast: “The Obama administration was given multiple chances Wednesday to endorse a longtime ally’s airstrikes on America’s biggest enemy at the moment, the so-called Islamic State. Over and over again, Obama’s aides declined to back Egypt’s military operation against ISIS. It’s another sign of the growing strain between the United States and Egypt, once one of its closest friends in the Middle East.

This shouldn’t be a complete surprise; Cairo, after all, didn’t tell Washington about its strikes on the ISIS hotbed of Derna, Libya. Still, Wednesday’s disconnect was jarring. White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest passed on a reporter’s question about an endorsement of Egypt’s growing campaign against ISIS. So did State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki.

“We are neither condemning nor condoning” the Egyptian strikes, is all one U.S. official would tell The Daily Beast.”

Opinion: A person is either part of the solution or part of the problem. I just love it when an old saying fits something so well.

In one of our comments yesterday, Shelly asked “Anyone get the feeling the world’s elite WANT ISIS to spread?”

I agree. In our post December 14, 2014 ‘Globalists Exploit ISIS Threat to Empower UN’ we said this:

“Terrorism is a tool for globalists. By pretending to stop ISIS with limited airstrikes the terror group becomes a useful idiot in the hands of government bureaucrats. The more brutal ISIS becomes, the more our freedoms disappear.”

Front Page Mag: “President Obama’s ongoing antipathy towards Egypt is no accident. Our feckless president has long had a soft spot in his heart for the Muslim Brotherhood (MB), and Egypt’s removal of the terror group from the corridors of power has rankled the administration. So what is it the Egyptians understand and our president denies? The Egyptian Minister of Religious Endowments insists that ISIS was birthed by the MB.

Dr. Mohamed Mokhtar Gomaa and other Egyptian scholars have explained that while ISIS is publicly hostile to the MB, they share identical goals. Last August, the Ministry illuminated those goals. “They are both waging a war against their homelands with vandalism, destruction and murder—murder on behalf of the enemies of the state who fund them,” read a published statement.

Other similarities include the exploitation of women to further their agenda, and the reality that both groups use “lying and deception in the name of religion,” and both have “ignorant and lying” leaders who “use religion to play with the minds of the public,” the statement explained. “The main commonality between the two groups is their terrorist acts,” it added.

Opinion: Middle East terror groups have their origins in disobedience. The Israelites were to be a nation of priests (Exodus 19:6) and a separate and holy people unto the Lord (Deuteronomy 14:2) .

The Israelites were commanded to marry in the family line (Deuteronomy 7:1-3) to keep the blood pure:

When the Lord your God brings you into the land which you go to possess, and has cast out many nations before you, the Hittites and the Girgashites and the Amorites and the Canaanites and the Perizzites and the Hivites and the Jebusites, seven nations greater and mightier than you, and when the Lord your God delivers them over to you, you shall conquer them and utterly destroy them. You shall make no covenant with them nor show mercy to them.  Nor shall you make marriages with them. You shall not give your daughter to their son, nor take their daughter for your son.”

It is that simple and that complex.

As a foreshadowing of that command, Abraham took great pains (Genesis 24) to find a wife in the family line for his son Isaac, yet two of Abraham’s progeny did just the opposite:

Ishmael: Hagar found an Egyptian wife for her son, and he in time fathered 12 sons, Genesis 21:21

Esau: At the age of forty, Esau married Judith, the daughter of Beeri the Hittite, and Basemath, the daughter of Elon the Hittite. “And they were a grief of mind to Isaac and Rebekah” (Genesis 26:35). But it was Esau’s third wife, Mahalath, a daughter of Ishmael, who must have hurt Isaac the most, as it was revenge toward his father over the birthright (Genesis 27:41).

After the Babylonian captivity, the returning Jews again took wives from the Canaanite camps:

The people of Israel and the priests and the Levites have not separated themselves from the peoples of the lands, with respect to the abominations of the Canaanites, the Hittites, the Perizzites, the Jebusites, the Ammonites, the Moabites, the Egyptians, and the Amorites. For they have taken some of their daughters as wives for themselves and their sons, so that the holy seed is mixed with the peoples of those lands. Indeed, the hand of the leaders and rulers has been foremost in this trespass” Ezra 9:1-2.

Resentment of God’s love for the Israelites, became manifest in the prophecy of Malachi 1:2-3 and later repeated by Paul in Romans 9:13.

The hatred was inherited by Esau’s illegitimate grandson, Amalek, whom the Lord has sworn to have war with in every generation (Exodus 17:16).

The hatred was inherited by Ishmael’s descendants since Ishmael was banished with his mother Hagar to the Arabian peninsula (Genesis 21:14).

All ME terror groups can be traced to these divergent lines.
