Col. (ret.) Richard Kemp and Maj. (ret.) Chris Driver-Williams—Killing Americans and their Allies: Iran’s Continuing War Against the U.S. and the West:

It appears that the recent framework agreement between the Islamic Republic of Iran and the P5+1, led by the U.S. Administration, will result in a deal that would allow Iran to become a nuclear-armed state. In this context, it is worth recalling the true nature of the Islamic Republic, in particular its recent track-record of violence against the United States and its allies. Both authors of this study had responsibilities for UK national intelligence assessment and crisis management during the period when this violence reached its peak in Iraq.

Many have forgotten, or perhaps never realized, that Iranian military action, often working through proxies, usually using terrorist tactics, has led to the deaths of well over a thousand American soldiers in Iraq and Afghanistan over the last decade and a half. Does it make sense to risk allowing a regime that, since its inception, has been conducting a war against the United States and its allies to become a nuclear power?

Anti-Americanism helped fuel the 1979 Islamic revolution in Iran. A violent anti-American doctrine that challenges any role for America in the Middle East, has been and remains the central focus of Iranian foreign policy. Since the revolution, Iran has waged and continues to wage war against the United States and its allies.

Iran has conducted this war primarily using the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps Qods Force (IRGC-QF) and the Iranian proxy Lebanese Hizbullah. Both have been engaged in direct military action; and both have cultivated and supported military action abroad by other proxies, mainly through the use of terrorist bombings, abductions and assassinations. The killing of U.S. soldiers in Iraq and Afghanistan serves a strategic goal (see later section “Killing Americans and Allies Globally”). However, Iranian violence has often been intended not to achieve any specific tactical or strategic objective, but simply to hurt the U.S. Most of these actions have been designed to be deniable, or at least unprovable.

SnyderTalk Comment: Even when things are destined to happen no matter what we do, still we must do what we know is right.

The fact that Yahweh is allowing things to happen in the Middle East and throughout the world isn’t an excuse for sitting on our backsides and saying, “It’s God’s will.”  It’s not His will.  It’s His forbearance.

Keep in mind that Yahweh allowed things to deteriorate before Noah and his family were saved on the ark.  And the people of Sodom and Gomorrah were allowed to sink to the depths of depravity before Yahweh destroyed them.  There are many more examples, but these two will suffice.

There is a huge difference between what Yahweh wants to happen and what he allows to happen.  In the end, we will be judged for what we do and don’t do.  Not standing up against evil is evil.  Doing nothing is not a good excuse.  It’s a copout.

What does this have to do with Iran?

Iran’s battle isn’t really with the U.S. and its allies in the West.  Iran’s battle is with Yahweh, His chosen people, and true believers.  Right now, it just looks as though Iran is at war with the U.S. and its Western allies.  In due course, the truth will become obvious.

What we do individually and collectively as believers will have a bearing on the outcome.  We know that because we have seen Obama shift in the face of political pressure already.

We know something else, too.  The Senate is weak.  As a group, our senators don’t have the courage to confront the president.  Many of them don’t have the wisdom to confront him.  Others are part of Team Obama.  Bottom line: we can’t trust the senate or the president.

Again, doing nothing is not an option.






13--Perspectives 2


CBN: Evangelical Christian support for Israel slipping— As the world continues to isolate Israel, American evangelicals are strong supporters of the Jewish state. Now, some fear that support could be quietly eroding. “Evangelical Christians have been a reliable source of support for Israel. But in recent years, institutions such as evangelical schools and mission groups are increasingly supporting Palestinian activism,” Mark Tooley, president of the Institute for Religion and Democracy, said.

SnyderTalk Comment: This sounds discouraging to many Christians, but it shouldn’t because it has to happen.  It’s what the Messiah referred to as the dividing of the sheep and the goats.  To understand it, you need to read Matthew 25: 31-46:

31 “But when the Son of Man comes in His glory, and all the angels with Him, then He will sit on His glorious throne. 32 All the nations will be gathered before Him; and He will separate them from one another, as the shepherd separates the sheep from the goats; 33 and He will put the sheep on His right, and the goats on the left.”

34 “Then the King will say to those on His right, ‘Come, you who are blessed of My Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world. 35 For I was hungry, and you gave Me something to eat; I was thirsty, and you gave Me something to drink; I was a stranger, and you invited Me in; 36 naked, and you clothed Me; I was sick, and you visited Me; I was in prison, and you came to Me.’ 37 Then the righteous will answer Him, ‘Lord, when did we see You hungry, and feed You, or thirsty, and give You something to drink? 38 And when did we see You a stranger, and invite You in, or naked, and clothe You? 39 When did we see You sick, or in prison, and come to You?’ 40 The King will answer and say to them, ‘Truly I say to you, to the extent that you did it to one of these brothers of Mine, even the least of them, you did it to Me.’”

41 “Then He will also say to those on His left, ‘Depart from Me, accursed ones, into the eternal fire which has been prepared for the devil and his angels; 42 for I was hungry, and you gave Me nothing to eat; I was thirsty, and you gave Me nothing to drink; 43 I was a stranger, and you did not invite Me in; naked, and you did not clothe Me; sick, and in prison, and you did not visit Me.’ 44 Then they themselves also will answer, ‘Lord, when did we see You hungry, or thirsty, or a stranger, or naked, or sick, or in prison, and did not take care of You?’ 45 Then He will answer them, ‘Truly I say to you, to the extent that you did not do it to one of the least of these, you did not do it to Me.’ 46 These will go away into eternal punishment, but the righteous into eternal life.”

I prepared a PowerPoint presentation about this.  I’ve delivered it many times to groups of various sorts.  The title is “Christians and the End of Days”.  You should watch it.

I’ll be succinct.  The Children of Israel represent the Holy One of Israel—Yahweh.  Those who help them will be rewarded.  Those who don’t help them will experience an entirely different fate.  The Messiah explained it perfectly.

We are witnessing the dividing of the sheep and the goats.  As I said, it has to happen, and it’s happening now so don’t be alarmed.

This is a warning to people who put political party affiliation and race ahead of Yahweh: the First Commandment says that we shall have no other gods before Yahweh.  When political party affiliation and race take Yahweh’s place in someone’s life, he is worshipping a false god.

Mark Tooley: Liberation theolgy denounces Netanyahu’s reelection— The reelection of Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu will certainly inflame the small but outspoken segment of American Protestantism that is anti-Israel. Mainline Protestant elites, undeterred by their empty pews, have been ideologically hostile to Israel for decades. More politically significant is the growing segment of Evangelical elites, many of them shifting left on a wide range of issues, who have become more critical of Israel than is common among mainstream Evangelicals. One recent example straddles both religious worlds. Miguel De La Torre is a Cuban-American theologian, formerly conservative, who was ordained Southern Baptist and previously taught at largely Evangelical Hope College in Michigan until his controversial left-leaning polemics evidently lead to his departure for the firmly liberal Iliff School of Theology in Denver, a United Methodist seminary. Now a self-professed liberation theologian, De La Torre issues pronouncements more akin to United Methodism than the Southern Baptist Convention, such as his recent response to the Israeli election, of which he explained: “Israel has voted for an anti-peace and anti-Arab administration and for this it requires denouncement.”

David Daoud: Iran’s Rouhani Declares Sanctions Regime on Verge of Complete Collapse— Iranian President Hassan Rouhani declared on Tuesday that the sanctions regime against his country was on the verge of complete collapse and that no country would be able to continue exerting pressure on Iran, in a speech he delivered to 12,000 workers in Tehran. Rouhani said those benefiting from the sanctions, established to combat his country’s nuclear program, should start looking for another way to benefit. He claimed that Iran would “continue the path of constructive interaction with the world under the guidance of the [Supreme] Leader and support of and support of our people, and no country in the world can continue exerting pressure and imposing sanctions against Iran in the future.” During the speech, Rouhani stressed the importance of Iranian self-reliance, concentrating the country’s capital within its territory, and prioritizing what he called “the resistance economy,” according to semi-official state news agency Mehr.  See “Sanctions regime on verge of complete collapse: Rouhani”.

SnyderTalk Comment: This has to happen, too.  Again, the sheep and the goats are being divided, and Yahweh is doing the dividing.

Michael Curtis: Amnesty International: Anti-Semitic or Simply Misguided?— In the roster of organizations whose well-meaning objectives have been distorted by bias and prejudicial resolutions, Amnesty International (AI) stands high. For those concerned with human rights, AI is now part of the problem, not part of the solution. It has lost the treasure of a spotless reputation. The stated objective of AI is to work to protect human rights worldwide, and to mobilize the grassroots power of millions of people to effect change. Yet its members recently refused to approve a text that called on the UK government to monitor anti-Semitism closely and periodically review the security situation of Britain’s Jewish population. A majority of members at AI’s annual general meeting in London on April 19, thought otherwise. By a vote of 468 to 461, they rejected a resolution to campaign against anti-Semitism, and to tackle the rise in anti-Semitic attacks in Britain, whether physical or verbal, online, or in person.

Khaled Abu Toameh: The Palestinians No One Talks About— The international community seems to have forgotten that Palestinians live not only in the West Bank and Gaza Strip, but also in a number of Arab countries, especially Syria, Jordan and Lebanon. Western journalists covering the Israeli-Palestinian conflict regularly focus on the “plight” of Palestinians who are affected by Israeli security policies, while ignoring what is happening to Palestinians in neighboring Arab countries. These journalists, for example, often turn a blind eye to the daily killings of Palestinians in Syria and the fact that Palestinians living in Lebanon and other Arab countries are subjected to Apartheid and discriminatory laws. A Palestinian who is shot dead after stabbing an Israeli soldier in Hebron receives more coverage in the international media than a Palestinian woman who dies of starvation in Syria.

Lt. Col. (ret.) Michael Segall: Iran Keeps Defying the United States in the Persian Gulf – So Far with Impunity— In a defiant and belligerent move, the navy of the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGCN) seized a Marshall Islands-flagged cargo ship at the Strait of Hormuz after firing several warning shots at it on April 28, 2015. Since the 1980’s, Iran has a history of threatening U.S. and allied shipping in the Persian Gulf. On April 24, Iranian warships harassed, but did not board, another large commercial ship, the U.S.-flagged Kensington. IRGC Navy fighters boarded, took over the Marshall Islands ship and diverted it to Iranian territorial waters near the port of Bandar Abbas. Iranian authorities claimed that the cargo ship has entered Iranian territorial waters. The Pentagon spokesman confirmed that Iran had commandeered the Maersk Tigris M/V and that it was now in the “vicinity of Larak Island, in the Strait of Hormuz.” The ship had been on its way from Jeddah in Saudi Arabia to Jebel Ali in the United Arab Emirates. Iran’s Fars News Agency, which is associated with the IRGC, originally reported that the IRGC’s navy (IRGCN) had seized an “American commercial vessel” carrying 34 people. A knowledgeable source said the ship had been captured by the IRGCN, which is responsible for patrolling the sensitive Persian waters, at the request of Iran’s Ports and Maritime Organization. “The ship was seized after a relevant court order was issued for its confiscation,” it claimed. The Islamic Republic of Iran Navy (IRIN), with larger deep water ships, concentrates its operations in the Caspian Sea, the Gulf of Oman and the Indian Ocean.

Jonathan Zalman: ‘Holocaust Denier’ Libel Case To Hit Big Screen— In 1996, British Holocaust revisionist David Irving sued Deborah E. Lipstadt, author of Denying the Holocaust: The Growing Assault on Truth & Memory, for libel. The book, published in 1993, depicts “those who insist that the death of six million Jews in Nazi concentration camps is nothing but a hoax perpetrated by a powerful Zionist conspiracy.” Among “the province of pseudohistorians,” wrote Lipstadt, was David Irving. The case closed in 2000, and six years later, Lipstadt published History on Trial: My Day in Court with a Holocaust Denier, which depicts her legal battle with Irving. (Lipstadt wrote The Eichmann Trial for Nextbook Press, part of its Jewish Encounter Series).

David Parsons: Munich again?— Many today look at the rising threat of radical Islam and the weak Western response, and wonder if we are repeating the mistakes of 1938. No doubt we live in perilous times. Islamic State and al-Qaida are waging violent jihad against us. Iran is seeking nuclear weapons to dominate the Middle East. Yet, many Western leaders say peace will come only if Israel surrenders part of its ancient homeland. So are we seeing an appeasement of great evil, like Neville Chamberlain at Munich? There are many parallels to September 1938, when the British prime minister claimed he made peace with Adolf Hitler by offering him Czech land. Yet Hitler’s appetite for conquest was whetted, not abated. And Chamberlain became a symbol of failed statesmanship.

Clifford D. May: The lessons of Armenia should not be lost— Displayed outside the Turkish Embassy in Washington last week was a large banner reading: “Armenian genocide is an imperialist lie.” That claim might be amusing were the subject not so dreadful. The slaughter of hundreds of thousands of Armenians in 1915 was carried out by the Ottoman Empire. It was therefore, by definition, an imperialist crime, one regarded by most experts as the first genocide of the 20th century. The notion that some other empire (which one?) has fabricated a slander against Turkey is ludicrous. Those who came up with that slogan must assume they are addressing a clueless audience. One place to find clues is Dr. Efraim Karsh’s “Islamic Imperialism: A History,” published in 2006 by Yale University Press. Karsh notes that in the last quarter of the 19th century, the weakening Ottoman Empire (which was also an Islamic caliphate) was being forced to give up most of its European colonies. Around the same time, the empire’s Armenian population — Christians, whose rights were limited by their Muslim rulers — began to undergo a “nationalist awakening.” Uprisings ensued.

Israel Hayom Staff and Reuters: Report: Iran pushing Hezbollah to carry out attacks against Israel— Iran has recently increased its pressure on Hezbollah and Syria to carry out attacks on the Israel-Syria and Israel-Lebanon borders, Channel 10 News reported Tuesday. Syrian Defense Minister Gen. Fahd Jassem al-Freij, who is also deputy commander of the Syrian armed forces, met his Iranian counterpart Hossein Dehghan on Tuesday, in Tehran. The rare visit was aimed at “strengthening coordination and cooperation between the two armies … especially in the face of terrorism and common challenges in the region,” the state-run Syrian Arab News Agency said.

Malia Zimmerman: ‘Out-of-control family affair’: Experts question Clinton Foundation’s true charitable spending—The charity run by the Clintons has raised $2 billion since it was founded in 2001 — $144.3 million in 2013 alone — but only a small fraction of the take went to its “life-saving work,” according to analysts who monitor non-profits. The Bill, Hillary and Chelsea Clinton Foundation claims 88 percent of the money it raises goes to actual charity work, but experts who have looked at the books put the number at about 10 percent. The rest, they say, goes mostly to salaries, benefits, travel and fund-raising. “That claim is demonstrably false, and it is false not according to some partisan spin on the numbers, but because the organization’s own tax filings contradict the claim,” said Sean Davis, co-founder of The Federalist, a conservative online magazine.

SnyderTalk Comment: The phrase “out-of-control” is a good description of the Clintons.  The word “charitable” in connection with them is a misnomer.  The fact that their claims are “demonstrably false” surprises no-one who is objective and honest.  The Clintons’ naïve and foolish followers won’t believe the truth no matter who tells it.

As Walter Cronkite used to say, “And that’s the way it is.”

Jackie Northam: Game Of Thrones: Saudi King Shakes Up Line Of Succession— Saudi Arabia’s King Salman has issued a series of royal decrees bringing about a dramatic reshuffling in the line of succession, and ushering in a younger generation to take up key ministerial positions. This is the second major shake-up to the ranks of power in the kingdom since the 79-year-old Salman assumed the throne Jan. 23. (There are roughly 15,000 princes and princesses in Saudi Arabia, but power is consolidated among a few. You can follow along with this helpful Wall Street Journal family tree.) The most surprising change is the naming of a new heir to the throne. Crown Prince Muqrin bin Abdulaziz is out, replaced by the country’s powerful interior minister, Prince Mohammed bin Nayef, who also happens to be the king’s nephew. Prince Muqrin was close to King Abdullah, who died in January.

Middle East Monitor: Shin Bet tells Netanyahu to strike prisoner swap deal with Hamas— Israeli intelligence service Shin Bet has asked Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to strike a prisoner swap deal with Hamas warning that if this doesn’t happen, Israel is going for a fiercer confrontation with the group in Gaza, Israeli media reported yesterday. According to the leading Israeli newspaper Haaretz, Shin Bet warned Netanyahu to accelerate a prisoner swap deal with Hamas. “You either choose the prisoner swap as soon as possible or a fiercer confrontation with the resistance in Gaza is coming,” Haaretz reported Shin Bet saying to Netanyahu.

Jonathan Sacks: As Jews, We Must Hold Ourselves to Higher Standards— A President guilty of sexual abuse. A Prime Minister indicted on charges of corruption and bribery. Rabbis in several countries accused of financial impropriety, sexual harassment, and child abuse. That such things happen testifies to a profound malaise in contemporary Jewish life. More is at stake than simply morality. Morality is universal. Bribery, corruption and the misuse of power are wrong, and wrong equally, whoever is guilty of them. When, though, the guilty are leaders, something more is involved: the principles introduced in our parsha of Kiddush ha-Shem and Chillul ha-Shem: “Do not profane My holy name, that I may be sanctified in the midst of the Israelites, I the Lord who sanctify you” (Lev. 22: 32).

SnyderTalk Comment: Sacks is right.  I’m absolutely positive that that’s the way Yahweh sees it because He said it.  Leviticus 22: 32 is a perfect example.

Whether the Children of Israel including Jewish people like it or not, we represent Yahweh in the eyes of the world.  That was done by design, Yahweh’s design.

‘Jeb Bush’s ties to Baker may cost him shot at Adelson’s megabucks’

SnyderTalk Comment: Jeb Bush’s ties to Baker and his father’s policies concern me, too.  His father is responsible for the Oslo Process and the two-state solution proposal.  The Oslo Process has been an unmitigated disaster, and the two-state solution is an abomination to Yahweh.  Jim Baker was instrumental in the creation of both.

Since politicians who are seeking office try to say the right words to win an election but then revert to their true beliefs after they are elected, I remain suspicious of Jeb Bush no matter what he says.

I may end up supporting Bush, but I’m not there yet.  All I will say at this point is that Bush is not a Democrat.  That’s to his credit.

Booing Yahweh sealed the Democrat Party’s fate for me. Probably unbeknownst to them, it revealed who they are and who they represent.

Medvedev calls 1915 events ‘genocide’

SnyderTalk Comment: Medvedev is right.  It’s too bad that Obama can’t find the courage to call it what it was since almost everyone in the world knows it already.

The only reason I can think of for Obama not calling it what it was is his desire not to offend his Muslim brothers and especially his good friend President Erdoğan.

Those aren’t good reasons for avoiding the truth.  The people of Turkey know it and they don’t take pride in hit.  That was evident a few days ago.

Who’s Telling The Truth, John Kerry Or Iran?

SnyderTalk Comment: Kerry has a long history of lying.

See “Kerry: Netanyahu’s Iran ‘Mythology’ Not Going to Happen”.  It’s shameful that a man like John Kerry is in a position where he thinks that he can tell anyone much less an Israeli prime minister what is and isn’t going to happen.

Kerry may be in for a big surprise.  Arrogance doesn’t go over well with Yahweh.  Kerry’s not the first boastful bloat to try and intimidate Israel, but he wouldn’t know that.

Judging by his attitude, behavior, and the way he and his boss treat Israel and Christians, I think it’s a safe bet that neither one of them knows Yahweh.

4--Scripture of the Day Yahweh

Exodus 8

20 Now Yahweh said to Moses, “Rise early in the morning and present yourself before Pharaoh, as he comes out to the water, and say to him, ‘Thus says Yahweh, “Let My people go, that they may serve Me. 21 For if you do not let My people go, behold, I will send swarms of flies on you and on your servants and on your people and into your houses; and the houses of the Egyptians will be full of swarms of flies, and also the ground on which they dwell. 22 But on that day I will set apart the land of Goshen, where My people are living, so that no swarms of flies will be there, in order that you may know that I, Yahweh, am in the midst of the land. 23 I will put a division between My people and your people. Tomorrow this sign will occur.”’” 24 Then Yahweh did so. And there came great swarms of flies into the house of Pharaoh and the houses of his servants and the land was laid waste because of the swarms of flies in all the land of Egypt.

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.
