emersonAmerican Thinker “It is not an exaggeration to say that because of Democrat political correctness hamstringing our FBI agents, they could not combat the Islamists in our midst without Steven Emerson.

Oliver “Buck” Revell, former head of FBI Investigations and Counter-Terrorism, said as much in these words: “The Investigative Project has been one of the most important sources of accurate and timely information on the real goals and objectives of the wide spread and powerful Islamist movement.”

The FBI turns to Emerson to find out what is happening. So does AT. This is what Emerson told us: Isis is Al Qaeda 3.0. They are already in the United States and the only reason there has not been a terror attack is that they have not decided to do it yet.”

Opinion: I do this all day. Yet, until two days ago, I had never heard of Khorasan, and until yesterday, I had never heard of Steve Emerson.

Steve says this “ISIS is recruiting biophysicists, engineers, social media types, people who have expertise in really carrying out sophisticated terrorist attacks coming back to the United States.” Yesterday, we heard that it was Khorasan that was the real threat to the US.

And Steve also said this “There’s one recruiter that [had been]… picked up [in the past], well identified, in Bloomington, Minnesota at the Al Farooq Mosque. There are recruiters going around the country in other mosques, where they identify potential volunteers.”

And this “They test them out to see if they’re willing to die on behalf of martyrdom of the cause for Allah. Then they give them cash, they provide money for their families in case they die. They give them tickets to go to Turkey. Turkey has allowed them, hundreds, to go through to Syria, then to Iraq. And we [the U.S.] count Turkey as one of our top allies.”

And worst of all, is this “We haven’t put [many of] them on the terrorism watch list, which we should.”

So, none of ISIS’ American recruits are on watch lists, and all of them are free to come and go at will. The President’s tough talk at the UN yesterday,  “They should leave the battlefield while they can” needs to be followed up with protection at home.

Disturbing.

World Net Daily: “WASHINGTON – The release by ISIS of 49 Turkish diplomats under mysterious circumstances raises further concern that Ankara’s cooperation with the jihadist army could be part of a quiet plan to re-establish the Ottoman Empire, according to some Middle East experts, Joseph Farah’s G2 Bulletin.

Ankara had used the hostage issue as a reason to deny a U.S. request either to get directly involved in attacking ISIS positions in Syria or to allow the U.S. to use Incirlik Air Base to launch attacks.

With its main excuse removed, some Middle East experts believe Sunni Turkey’s ulterior motive is to quietly work with the Sunni ISIS to reestablish the Ottoman Empire.”

Opinion: The mask is off. Recip Erdogan has been signaling his Islamic intentions since the 2010 Mavi Marmara flotilla incident and his obvious support for Hamas in the recent 5- day war.

Turkey’s lack of involvement in the ISIS bombing campaign makes it clear that it should be removed from NATO. If that happens, it can then join the SCO (Shanghai Cooperation Organization) and unite with Russia and Iran in a prophesied assault on the Jewish state in the future war of Gog and Magog (Ezekiel 38-39).

But first, according to Ezekiel 38:11, Israel will be living in peace and safety. A massive victory in an Arab war like Psalm 83 would be just the ticket.  “You will say, “I will invade a land of un-walled villages; I will attack a peaceful and unsuspecting people—all of them living without walls and without gates and bars.”

Then, so that there is no confusion as to timing, Ezekiel 38:12 tells us the motive of the invaders, and that the war takes place after Israel is put back in the land:

” … to take plunder and to take booty, to stretch out your hand against the waste places that are again inhabited, and against a people gathered from the nations, who have acquired livestock and goods, who dwell in the midst of the land. “

Incredible isn’t it?

thousands-of-syrian-kurds-enter-turkey-fleeing-islamic-state-advance-2014-9

Business Insider: Tens of thousands of Syrian Kurds have crossed into Turkey over the past day, fleeing an advance by fighters affiliated with the jihadist group Islamic State (also known as ISIS or ISIL) who have seized dozens of villages close to the border, Turkish Deputy Prime Minister Numan Kurtulmus said on Saturday.

Turkey opened a stretch of the frontier on Friday after Kurdish civilians fled their homes, fearing an imminent attack on the border town of Ayn al-Arab, known as Kobani in Kurdish.

“Around 45,000 Syrian Kurds have crossed the border as of now from eight entrance points along a 30-km distance from Akcakale to Mursitpinar since we opened the border yesterday,” Kurtulmus told CNN Turk television.

Opinion: (Encyclopedia of the nations) “The population of Syria was estimated at 16,305,659 in July 2000, an increase of 3.4 percent from the 1990 population of 12,116,000. In addition, there are about 38,200 people living in the Israeli-controlled Golan Heights (excluding nearly 20,000 Israeli settlers). Syria has one of the highest population growth rates in the world. Over the last decade, however, Syria’s population growth rate has gradually decreased from 3.30 percent in 1990 to approximately 2.58 percent in 2000. Despite the steady decline in its growth rate, the population is expected to reach 20.9 million by the year 2010.”

The population of Damascus, Syria’s second largest city, was 2.6 million people in 2004. Today, despite Syria’s 3.4% growth rate, the population of Damascus has dropped to approximately 1.7 million.

  • From a secular view: civil war and the emergence of the Sunni terror group ISIS would suffice to explain a drop in population
  • From a Biblical view: the drop in population of Damascus is God removing people before the fulfillment of prophecy

We know from Isaiah 17 that Damascus is prophesied to be destroyed in one night. Skeptics argue that the prophecy was fulfilled in 732 BC when the city was partially destroyed by the Arameans.

When comparing fulfilled prophecy, it is obvious that every detail is fulfilled. Example Isaiah 66:7-8 prophesied that Israel’s rebirth would take place in one day – which is precisely what happened at 5 PM on May 14, 1948.

We know that Damascus has never been completely destroyed. A simple Google search shows the city as one of the world’s oldest continuously inhabited cities in the world.

Isaiah 17:1,14 says that Damascus will be a ruinous heap. In the evening there is terror, and in the morning it is gone.

The only thing we don’t know for sure is when.
