Breitbart: “Tuesday on MSNBC’s “NewsNation,” NBC News chief foreign correspondent Richard Engel discussed the new strategy of the Obama administration’s coalition against ISIS to take back the city of Ramadi and called it “almost laughable.”

Opinion: Richard Engel must have forgotten the men, women and families who paid the tab.

GAZA_Rockets_14_7_14Debkafile: “Israel resorted Tuesday night, May 26, to its old routine response to rocket attacks from the Gaza Strip by the aerial bombardment of four “terrorist” targets. Once again, Hamas hurriedly removed its personnel from the targeted facilities in time to escape casualties. For Israel it was an opportunity missed.

The first Palestinian long-range Grad rocket attack since last summer’s Israeli operation in Gaza was a chance to go for really potent terrorist infrastructure, such as the new tunnels the Palestinians are again running under the border.”

Opinion: Since the rockets have started flying, the tunnels must be near ready.

An April 14, 2015 report from the Times of Israel said this: “Hamas has begun using heavy machinery and engineering tools to accelerate the excavation of attack tunnels leading from the Gaza Strip under the Israeli border, sources in the Palestinian enclave told the Times of Israel. 

The equipment, the sources said, includes small bulldozers with the ability to maneuver in tight spaces. From the Israeli side of the border, larger tractors are clearly visible above the ground as the machines prepare the tunnel entries.”

On March 6, 2015, President Obama announced support for a Palestinian state in retaliation for Israel re-electing Prime Minister Netanyahu. And just last week Pope Francis welcomed one of the unelected presidents of the Palestinian/Hamas Unity government to the Vatican and pledged support for Palestinian statehood.

The leaders of both the US and Vatican have violated the Abrahamic Covenant of Genesis 12:3, and judgment will surely follow.

Zero Hedge:  From the first sudden, and quite dramatic, appearance of the fanatical Islamic group known as ISIS which was largely unheard of until a year ago, on the world’s stage and which promptly replaced the worn out and tired al Qaeda as the world’s terrorist bogeyman, we suggested that the “straight to beheading YouTube clip” purpose behind the Saudi Arabia-funded Islamic State was a simple one:

Use the Jihadists as the vehicle of choice to achieve a political goal: depose of Syria’s president Assad, who for years has stood in the way of a critical Qatari natural gas pipeline, one which could dethrone Russia as Europe’s dominant – and belligerent – source of energy, reaching an interim climax with the unsuccessful Mediterranean Sea military build up of 2013, which nearly resulted in quasi-world war.”

Opinion: There are three points we have been making for over 1 year:

  • ISIS is a useful idiot
  • The final World War will be over oil/natural gas
  • Climate change is a lie and a distraction

What I didn’t know about ISIS is that we, the USA, created it in much the same way we created the Mullahs of Iran in the 1970s.

Qatar-Gas-Lines-to-Europe

According to William Engdhal, (American/German freelance journalist, historian and economic researcher) “the battle is raging over whether pipelines will go toward Europe from east to west, from Iran and Iraq to the Mediterranean coast of Syria, or take a more northbound route from Qatar and Saudi Arabia via Syria and Turkey. It is not difficult to notice that the rebellion in Syria began  almost at the same time as the signing of a memorandum in Bushehr on June 25, 2011 regarding the construction of a new Iran-Iraq-Syria gas pipeline…”

And it is probably not a coincidence that two years later on September 6, 2013, President Obama drew the infamous red line on Bashar Assad and began supplying weapons to rebel groups who are now called ISIS.

And it would be even less of a coincidence that Vladimir Putin would get involved to keep Assad in power to block the pipeline to protect Russia’s biggest energy customer – Europe

Let’s take this a few steps forward. If energy needs and in particular natural gas is going to be the driving force in 21st century geopolitics, then perhaps Genesis 49:25 has already been fulfilled with Israel’s gigantic natural gas find in the Levant in 2010.

And if that is the case, Ezekiel 38:4, hooks in the jaw, would line up with Russia’s reluctance to lead an invasion force against Israel to block the potential sale of gas to Europe and take over Israel’s energy or as Ezekiel 38:13 calls it – plunder.

And what else could compel a 200 million man army (Revelation 9:16),  the kings of the East (Revelation 16:12) to march 3900 miles to do battle in the plains of Megiddo?

The US, Iraqi, and Syrian armies go to pieces against ISIS drive. Israel, Jordan, Saudis alarmed

Debkafile: “The fall of Damascus and Baghdad, or large slices thereof, to the rapacious Islamic State, is no longer the subject of strategic forecasts, but here and now. It is the price the region is paying for President Barack Obama’s single-minded obsession with détente with Tehran and a nuclear accord. Ramadi’s fall in Iraq and
