2--SnyderTalk Editorial 4


Has World War III Already Started?

While Hitler was rising to power in Germany, he had the support of many upper-class German Jews, the intellectual elite in particular.  They thought that Hitler was saying horrible things about Jews just to win political support from the masses and that he would change his tune when he achieved his goal of becoming Führer.

World War II and more than 6,000,000 slaughtered Jewish people are convincing proof that they were wrong.

Some Jewish people are making the same tragic mistake again today:

A major American university is currently hosting a visiting novelist who says that Israel is a deeply racist country and that its creation was a “catastrophe.”

And the Chicago Jewish Federation is helping to foot the bill.

The Israel Studies Project at the University of Illinois, which was created by, and is funded in part by, the Jewish Federation of Metropolitan Chicago, invites Israeli writers and academics to spend time at American universities. This year’s choice, Sayed Kashua, certainly has some interesting things to say.

Kashua is an Israeli Arab novelist, newspaper columnist, and television sitcom writer. He has strong opinions about Israel and is not shy about expressing them.

Writing in the British newspaper The Guardian on July 19, 2014, Kashua declared: “I despair to know that an absolute majority in the country does not recognise the rights of an Arab to live.”

Israel’s annihilation is a high priority for Islamists.  Some of them come in the guise of peace lovers.  I believe that Sayed Kashua and Mahmoud Abbas, for example, fall into that category.  I think that the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) in the U.S. does as well.

Israel’s destruction is the principle tenet of both the Hamas and Palestinian charters.  Many ordinary Israeli Arabs feel the same way.  They would like to see Israel wiped off the map.  That’s bizarre since they flocked to Israel because of the economic prosperity of the Jewish state, and now they want to kill the goose that lays golden eggs.

Iran is their enabler.  Its leaders are openly calling on Muslims around the world to join the fight to eradicate Israel, and they have supported a large number of Palestinian and other Arab groups that are committed to that end.  Hamas and Hezbollah are two examples.

As in Hitler’s day, Jewish people are at the top of the Islamist hit list.  There was no Israel until after World War II, but today Israel is the living embodiment of Jewish people.  Therefore, the State of Israel is target number 1 for Islamist’s.

Islamists don’t make idle threats.  They really mean it when they say that they intend to kill us.  They have zeroed in on Jews and Israel, but eventually anyone who doesn’t buy their philosophy hook, line, and sinker will become a target.  That includes ordinary Muslims in countries like Turkey because they don’t adhere to radical Islamist beliefs.

Frankly, I think that World War III has started already, and it’s progressing at a rapid pace.  It’s radical Islam against everybody else.  Country boundaries are meaningless because this is a fight for philosophical control first and political control second.

If I’m correct, things will get much worse before they get better.  The longer world leaders wait to accept the facts and take decisive action, the more difficult it will be to solve the problem.

This may really be the war that ends all wars.






13--Perspectives 2


Burak Bekdil: Who Does Turkey Support?— Last week, U.S. Vice President Joe Biden had to zigzag between the truth that accidentally spilled out of him and Washington’s pragmatism. In a speech at Harvard’s Kennedy School of Government, Biden said: “[Turkish] President (Recep Tayyip) Erdogan, he is an old friend, said you were right, we let too many people through, now we are trying to seal the border.” The “people,” however, whom Erdogan said Ankara had “let through” were the jihadists whom Turkey had supported with arms and money, and who have now become an international nightmare. In other words, the U.S. vice president was publicly saying that the Turkish president had confessed to supporting terrorists.

Boston Globe Editorial: Save border town from ISIS; don’t let Turkey veto US help—THE CIVIL war in Syria has been a litany of horrors, but for a time one bright spot remained: Syrian President Bashar Assad withdrew most of his army from northern Syria to focus on protecting Damascus. He left the Kurds — who have longed for self-rule — to manage their own affairs. For several years, they did just that. They successfully fought off Islamist groups and declared autonomy. But the radicals of the Islamic State, otherwise known as ISIS, are proving too strong for them. Over the past three weeks, more than 400 Kurds have died fighting the ISIS advance on the Syrian city of Kobani, near the Turkish border. Since Monday, the black flags of ISIS have been flying on the outskirts of town. On Tuesday, Kobani appeared to be on the verge of falling.

Melanie Phillips: Iran is the Greatest Threat— Unilaterally changing a global conversation isn’t easy. Trying to do so when everyone is shouting in panic and with their fingers stuffed in their ears is enough to daunt the most determined. Yet that’s what Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu attempted to do last week in the US, where he addressed the UN and spoke with President Barack Obama. America and Britain are panicking about the threat from Islamic State, so much so they have gone to war (albeit in a half-baked fashion, but that’s another story) in Iraq and Syria. Without denying the need to confront the Islamic State threat, Netanyahu wants America and its allies to be most concerned about the thousand-fold more dangerous menace of Iran. Netanyahu is worried that, since Iran is also fighting Islamic State, this will turn the Iranian regime from pariah into partner and thus provide it with vital leverage in its quest to achieve nuclear weapons capability. Accordingly, Netanyahu strove to equate Islamic State with Iran and other Islamic terror groups.

Timon Dias: Dutch Military Retreats Before… Tweets!— The Dutch Ministry of Defense has advised its soldiers not wear their uniforms in public. Dutch vice Prime Minister Lodewijk Asscher of the Labour Party emphasized that the proposal was merely advice. The Dutch military, however, clearly ordered — instead of advised — its personnel to hide their military professions in public. Dutch customs officials, whose uniforms could be mistaken as military, received the same advice. The reason for this display of woefully misplaced ‘conscientiousness’ was a series of threats by the Dutch jihadist known as Muhajiri Shaam, a member of the al-Qaeda-affiliated group Jahbat-al Nusra. Shaam tweeted: “So, now Dutch F-16’s. Dutch people: your government just made you a target”.

Raphael Ahren: Why are the Nordic countries so cold to Israel?— Sweden’s declared intention to recognize a Palestinian state has made major headlines in Israel and even caused a minor diplomatic brawl, but is just the latest installment in a series of moves made by the Nordic countries in recent weeks that caused ire in Jerusalem. In late September, Danish Foreign Minister Martin Lidegaard threatened “new steps, including a change in our trade relations with Israel,” in case the ceasefire negotiations with Hamas in Cairo didn’t go the way the Europeans wanted. Earlier that month, Finnish Foreign Minister Erkki Tuomioja also warned Jerusalem that trade and other relations might suffer if the peace process doesn’t advance at the pace Helsinki desires. The European Union has offered enough carrots, he told Haaretz, adding that “it also seems that it needs the possibility of sticks. If there is no progress, [Israel] has to be shown that there are costs involved in the stalling,” he said.

Soeren Kern: Belgium: Jihad Mega-Trial Begins— Belgium’s largest-ever terrorism trial has begun under tight security in the port city of Antwerp, where 46 members of the Islamist group Sharia4Belgium are being accused of recruiting dozens of young Muslims to fight for the jihadist group, Islamic State. Sharia4Belgium, a radical Salafist group, was founded in 2010 with the purpose of implementing Islamic Sharia law in Belgium. The group generated controversy in September 2011, when it announced the opening of a Sharia Law court in Antwerp, the second-largest city in Belgium. Although Sharia4Belgium announced its voluntary dissolution in 2012, when some of its leaders were imprisoned, Belgian authorities say it has continued to operate underground to recruit and funnel jihadists.

Jethro Mullen and Ted Rowlands: Who is Mohammed Hamzah Khan?— The arrest of an American teenager for allegedly attempting to join the Islamic militant group ISIS has stunned people in the working-class Chicago suburb where he lives. Neighbors and attendees of a local mosque described Mohammed Hamzah Khan, 19, as a nice, polite young man. “He’s the last person that we’d think that would happen to,” Bahauddin Ali Khan, a member of the mosque that Khan regularly attended in Bolingbrook, Illinois, told CNN affiliate WLS. FBI counterterrorism agents arrested Khan on Saturday at O’Hare International Airport where he was planning to fly to Vienna and then onward to Istanbul, according to the U.S. Department of Justice.

Michael Curtis: Why is the Left so wrong on Israel?— This piece is written more in sorrow than in anger. Why is the left so often wrong about Israel? Israel is a great country that has its problems, as do all countries and organizations, and sometimes, in the words of President Barack Obama, does “do stupid things.”  Israel’s political culture has been shaped by many factors, especially its Zionist ideology, the resilience it has developed in fighting four wars, and the impact of incessant terrorist attacks that have caused disruptions in the life of the country. But by any token the country is a remarkable success. Israel has integrated people from more than 100 countries into a diverse mosaic pattern in a democratic society of tolerance and freedom of expression and religion, notwithstanding the still-existing inequalities and differences with Palestinian Arabs. It compares favorably with other democratic nations, scientifically, economically, and culturally with the largest number of art museums per capita of any country in the world.

Fareed Zakaria: PM Netanyahu on Fareed Zakaria GPSNetanyahu on cooperation with Arab states: “There’s a commonality of interests that has crystallized and I’ve never seen in my lifetime, because they – all the Arab states identify, as we do, these twin challenges of a nuclear Iran and the radical Sunnis making inroads into Sunni states.” Netanyahu on negotiating with Hamas: “I negotiate with an enemy who wants to stop being my enemy. That’s how you make peace. An enemy who wants to destroy you remains committed to your obliteration is not – is not someone you can negotiate with.” Netanyahu on Iran’s nuclear program: “They say we want civilian nuclear energy. Well, so does Canada, Indonesia, Mexico, Sweden. Seventeen countries that have civilian nuclear energy and they don’t have a single centrifuge, because you really need centrifuges not for civilian energy, but to make bombs.” Netanyahu on a Palestinian state: “I think the solution lies in long-term security arrangements that involve Israel for a protracted period of time”

Alan M. Dershowitz: The Education of a Wartime President— Last year the Obama administration issued, with considerable fanfare, a new military policy designed to reduce civilian casualties when U.S. forces are attacking enemy targets. This policy required “near certainty” that there will be no civilian casualties before an air attack is permitted. When Israel acted in self-defense this summer against Hamas rocket and tunnel attacks, the Obama administration criticized the Israeli army for “not doing enough” to reduce civilian casualties. When pressed about what more Israel could do—especially when Hamas fired its rockets and dug its terror tunnels in densely populated areas, deliberately using humans as shields—the Obama administration declined to provide specifics. Now the Obama administration has exempted itself from its own “near certainty” standard in its attacks against Islamic State in Iraq and Syria. In a statement on Sept. 30 responding to questions by Michael Isikoff at Yahoo News, the administration said that in fighting Islamic State, also known as ISIS, the U.S. military can no longer comply with Mr. Obama’s vow last year to observe “the highest standard we can meet.”

4--Scripture of the Day Yahweh

Genesis 32: 24-32

24 Then Jacob was left alone, and a Man wrestled with him until daybreak. 25 When He saw that He had not prevailed against him, He touched the socket of his thigh; so the socket of Jacob’s thigh was dislocated while he wrestled with Him. 26 Then He said, “Let me go, for the dawn is breaking.” But he said, “I will not let you go unless you bless me.” 27 So He said to him, “What is your name?” And he said, “Jacob.” 28 He said, “Your name shall no longer be Jacob, but Israel; for you have striven with God and with men and have prevailed.” 29 Then Jacob asked Him and said, “Please tell me your name.” But He said, “Why is it that you ask my name?” And He blessed him there. 30 So Jacob named the place Peniel, for he said, “I have seen God face to face, yet my life has been preserved.” 31 Now the sun rose upon him just as he crossed over Penuel, and he was limping on his thigh. 32 Therefore, to this day the sons of Israel do not eat the sinew of the hip which is on the socket of the thigh, because He touched the socket of Jacob’s thigh in the sinew of the hip.

SnyderTalk Comment: First, the Man who wrestled with Jacob was Yahweh in human form.  He is the same Person who met Moses and many others. Second, Jacob knew that he had seen Yahweh face-to-face. Third, the name “Israel” literally means “triumphant with God.”  Some say that it may also mean “who prevails with God”, “God rules”, “God judges”, or “the prince of God”.  In any event, the name Israel signifies that Israel has a special place in Yahweh’s plan and that Israel triumphs with God.

14--Blessings from Revelation 2

Blessings in the Book of Revelation is a book that you need to read, especially now.  There are blessings throughout the Scriptures but Revelation is the only book in the Bible actually containing a specific blessing for reading it. It’s repeated twice, once at the beginning and again at the end. This is the reason that I believe Revelation should be the first step toward studying biblical prophecy. Though not easy to do, Revelation can be broken down and understood by anyone, not just the academic elite. So, Revelation’s blessings are for everyone.  Click here to order the eBook.  Click here to order the paperback.
