Breitbart: “The continuing flare-ups on Saudi Arabia’s northern border with Iraq have led some to believe that the Islamic State is set on an eventual push towards the Islamic holy cities of Mecca and Medina.”

Islamic State ‘Caliph’ Abu Bakr Al Baghdadi has frequently called for attacks inside Saudi territory, with hopes of the eventual capture of Mecca and Medina. “It is likely [Baghdadi] realizes that no one can claim to be the Islamic State without controlling the holy sites in and around Mecca and Medina and the wealth that comes with them,” writes Newsweek’s William Young.

Not only has the Islamic State frequently prodded the Saudi border, the terror group also sees Lebanon as a target of prime importance.

Opinion: Saudi Arabia’s holy sites: Mecca and Medina

Mecca is the birthplace of Muhammad in a cave 2 miles away. Mecca is the site of Muhammad’s first revelation of the Quran. Mecca is  regarded as the holiest city in the religion of Islam and a pilgrimage to it known as the Hajj is obligatory for all able Muslims.

Medina is a city in the Hejaz region of western Saudi Arabia. Medina is the burial place of the Islamic prophet Muhammad, it is the second holiest city in Islam after Mecca, a very sacred place.

The comparison of a sacred holy place can be made of Jerusalem, the most holy site in Judaism. Notice how the world finds it perfectly fine for Arab Palestinians to take Jerusalem as their capital, but no one would dare mention the possibility of a Jew even setting foot on either Mecca and Medina.

Now comes ISIS knocking on the Saudi’s door and according to Bible prophecy, King Abdullah has plenty of reason to worry. If Bakr al Baghdadi can take Saudi Arabia with its crown jewels, Mecca and Medina, his caliphate would be complete and so would his ability to control 40% of the world’s oil supplies.

Ezekiel 38:18 prophesies “Sheba, Dedan (Saudi Arabia), the merchants of Tarshish (Spain), and all their young lions (America and colonies) will say to you, ‘Have you come to take plunder? Have you gathered your army to take booty, to carry away silver and gold, to take away livestock and goods, to take great plunder?” (lion is the symbol for Britain).

At some point the Saudis, Great Britain, and America are bystanders and out of the picture.

dd4666852f73043fbf93aaf847374b0b_MThe New American: The Supreme Court announced Friday that it would render a ruling on the question of whether every state in the Union must allow same-sex marriages. The opinion will be handed down by late June or early July, the end of the high court’s current term.

While the New York Times describes the issue as “one of the great civil rights questions in a generation,” constitutionalists recognize it as another in a long line of questions of whether states will remain sovereign or continue their rapid devolution into mere administrative subunits of an all-powerful central government.

Opinion: There is another case that the  Supreme Court is expected to rule on by June of this year – whether Americans born in Jerusalem can have “ Jerusalem, Israel” written as their place of birth on their passports.

The case, Zivotofsky v. Kerry, has been winding through the American courts for years, with major setbacks followed by unexpected decisions putting the case back on track.  The basis of the policy has been to avoid taking sides in the Arab-Israeli conflict over whether Jerusalem is the capital of Israel.

In both cases, the Supremes are way over their heads:

The same-sex marriage issue is covered in the Federalist papers, No. 33:  “But it will not follow from this doctrine that acts of the larger society which are not pursuant to its constitutional powers, but which are invasions of the residuary authorities of the smaller societies, will become the supreme law of the land. These will be merely acts of usurpation, and will deserve to be treated as such.”  

In Zivotofsky v. Kerry, the issue is covered in Psalm 137:6: “May my tongue cling to the roof  of my mouth if I do not remember  you, if I do not consider Jerusalem my highest joy.”

Ivar Fjeld (.com): “The US Consulate in Jerusalem is training a force of 35 Palestinians from East Jerusalem to serve as armed guards, particularly for consular trips to the West Bank’s Area A, which is off-limits to Israelis, it was reported on Wednesday.

The arrangement violates a 2011 agreement between Israel and the consulate, the Hebrew daily Yedioth Ahronoth stated, whereby only IDF combat veterans would be authorized to carry arms as consulate guards.

“The consulate was authorized to keep roughly 100 handguns for security staff, on condition that they be either American diplomats or Israeli army veterans,” the paper’s Itamar Eichner wrote. Additionally, Israeli guards at the consulate alleged that the Palestinians were being trained with firearms in Jericho at a Palestinian Preventative Security base and in the United States.

Regional Security Officer Dan Cronin, Israeli guards claimed, “is in effect setting up an armed Palestinian militia in the consulate. They are being trained with weapons, in Krav Maga, and tactical driving. It’s irresponsible. Who can guarantee that such weapons in the hands of Palestinians won’t spread to terror?”

About Ivar Fjeld:

Ivar Fjeld was born in the Norwegian city of Bergen in 1965. He went to India first time in 1991, as a student of the Academy of Journalism in Oslo. He fell in love with India and later on with an Indian young lady whom he married in 1994.

In 1997 , Fjeld became a member of the Press Club in the Parliament of Norway and was later appointed as the media advisor to the Norwegian Minister for Oil and Energy. In 2001, Ivar, his wife and 3 children settled permanently in Goa (India). He continues to work for better relations between India and Norway, being appointed the Goa representative of the Norway-India Chamber of Commerce and Industry.

In his captivating autobiography Ivar recounts how he was once a hard core atheist resisting the church and all forms of religion.When he came to India people challenged him that there is a God and that it is possible to have a personal relationship with Him.

One day as Ivar opened the pages of the Bible he found God in a very deep and personal way. His life changed after that. Now he wants to share with others how he found peace with God.

The Bible says ,”You know the TRUTH and the TRUTH shall set you free.”

Opinion: Thanks to our reader Nannette, we now know about Ivar Fjeld. In his comment on the Palestinian militia Ivar gets right to the heart of the matter:

“The Republican majority in the Senate do not have the authority to stop President Obama’s military operations. Unfortunately the US president can launch his private wars, without interference from the law markers the first 50 days of operations. The President has privileged authorities as the supreme commander of the US forcers.

But the Senate majority can impeach the President, and remove him from office. They should do so.  Even as a “lame duck”, Obama continues to harm America and its allies.

 Isaiah 33:1
Woe to you, destroyer, you who have not been destroyed! Woe to you, betrayer, you who have not been betrayed! When you stop destroying, you will be destroyed; when you stop betraying, you will be betrayed.
Barak Hussein Obama has been a catastrophe for the free world. He has openly supported Islam, and portrayed this ideology as a “religion of peace”. When Egypt was thrown into confusion and chaos by the Muslim Brotherhood, their brother in the White House sent the brotherhood a cheque of 2 billion USD.

By hiring and arming 35 PLO members at the US consulate in Jerusalem, Obama has again shown his true colors. Israel is struggling with this US Administration, but hopes to survive the Presidency of Obama.

What is Obama scared of in Jerusalem?

That the state of Israel will attack the US consulate?

The rule of Obama is a security threat imposed on the Jewish state. Nevertheless, such a private para-militia in the capital of Israel, will not be able to revoke the statehood. But the formation of this militia sends a signal to the Israeli government to shift this consulate from Jerusalem and into area A, probably to the cities of Hebron or Ramallah.”
