image004-e1405653345260-300x215The Algemeiner: “As IDF forces entered Gaza on Thursday night in the latest phase of Israel’s ongoing Operation Protective Edge, violent riots broke out around Turkey threatening the local Jewish community and Israeli institutions. The head of the IHH terror-tied humanitarian NGO behind the infamous Mavi Marmara Flotilla, Bulent Yildirim, told local television station Haber Turk that “Turkish Jews will pay dearly for Israel’s actions.

“Israel is acting like a spoiled child,” Yildirim said. “Jewish tourists, don’t dare come to Turkey. Tonight and tomorrow we are going to hold a different kind of protest, we do not have patience anymore.”

“The Zionists are putting the future of the Jews in danger, we can not hold back our youngsters anymore,” he said.”

Opinion: Indeed. This past week we have seen similar anti-Israeli protests in France and Germany as pro-Hamas sentiment continues to grow.

Prime Minister Recip Erdogan’s financial and ideological support for Hamas is moving Turkey towards war. And one day, possibly soon, he will join with Russia and Iran in a sneak attack on the Jewish state to take plunder Ezekiel 38:13.

The question is what plunder? I’m guessing the fulfillment of Genesis 49:25 would do it … oil.

The Daily Beast: “The beginning of wisdom for Americans is to realize that the Arab world is tumbling through an earthquake, and that no mere policy can stop it, let alone shape it. At this stage, Washington can only prepare for the aftermath. The natural American impulse is to search for solutions, for policies that can prevail against these upheavals. But for years to come, Washington will have to lower its sights from solutions to more limited and defensive measures, in effect towards simply halting the jihadi menace. Even then, Americans should expect further jihadi triumphs.

Over time, however, Washington can cultivate new cooperative arrangements with the few stable and similarly inclined or threatened nations – Kurdistan, Israel, Jordan, Turkey and, shockingly, Iran. And if the new Egyptian rulers can be encouraged to stabilize and somewhat democratize their ancient land, Egyptians too would be a key to a better future.”

Opinion: The writer of the above is Leslie H. Gelb, a former correspondent for The New York Times and current President Emeritus and Board Senior Fellow at the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR). Gelb is Jewish.

Gelb gives us a look at secular progressive thinking and why the P5+1 are negotiating with Iran.  The CFR sees the United States as arrogant, self-indulgent, hypocritical, inattentive and unwilling or unable to engage in cross-cultural dialogue. We need to pay attention to what they’re saying.

This type of thinking will enable Iran to get the nuclear weapons toward which they are openly and feverishly working, and take the world to the wars of the end of this age.

The CFR is what Dinesh D’Souza classifies as one of the groups that think America is what is wrong with the world; that America built its power on the backs of the poor and indigent and it is time to give that wealth back. The CFR, like so many other progressive groups both Republican and Democrat, would also classify Bible-believing Christians as right wing fanatics.

Three thousand years ago another Jewish thinker, the wisest of all, had a different thought on the beginning of wisdom:

“The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom, And the knowledge of the Holy One is understanding” Proverbs 9:10. (His name was Solomon)

ed1YNet News: “Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan on Tuesday stepped up his rhetoric against Israel over its deadly air offensive on Gaza when he compared Israel to Adolf Hitler, Turkish daily Hurriyet reported.

Referring to a purported remark by a Knesset member that “all Palestinians are our enemies,” Erdogan reportedly said this was no different to the views of Hitler. “If these words had been said by a Palestinian, the whole world would have denounced it,” Hurriyet quoted him as saying.”

Opinion: The Prime Minister is flush with bravado since Israel’s apology and reparations for Turkey’s act of aggression concerning the 2010 Mavi Marmara incident.

Interesting, the flotilla was trying to breach the Gaza blockade that prevents rockets from getting to Hamas. Also interesting is that Erdogan is getting comfortable spouting anti-Semitic rhetoric for all the world to see.

Even more interesting is that Turkey (Gomer from the House of Beth Togarmah Ezekiel 38:6) has a date with Bible prophecy on the mountains of Israel along with Russia, Iran and a host of Islamic allies where they will meet their fate:

“You shall  fall on 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.  Ezekiel 39:4-5

Twenty-First Century Energy Wars

Stratrisks: “Iraq, Syria, Nigeria, South Sudan, Ukraine, the East and South China Seas: wherever you look, the world is aflame with new or intensifying conflicts. At first glance, these upheavals appear to be independent events, driven by their own unique and idiosyncratic circumstances. But look more closely and they share several key characteristics — notably,

Turkey’s High-Risk Power Play

Front Page Mag: “For most Westerners, Turkey is a hard nut to crack. How can you understand a state sponsor of terrorism that is also a member of NATO? How can you explain Turkey’s facilitation of Kurdish independence in Iraq in light of Turkey’s hundred-year opposition to Kurdish independence? What is Turkish Prime Minister Recep

Jews Implicated for Turkish Coal Mine Disaster

The Algemeiner: “Turkey’s pro-government daily Yeni Akit sought to implicate Jews in the country’s recent Soma coal mine disaster that left over 300 dead, Turkish daily Hurriyet reported on Wednesday. The paper blasted its distaste for Jews with a headline that criticized the mine’s owner for having a Jewish son-in-law and ”Zionist-dominated media” for distorting the story.” Opinion: Further proof of the
