The World is a Scary Place and It’s Getting Scarier Every Day

Katie and I have been in Israel for the past two weeks.  We arrived back in the States Saturday, and these news items caught my eye.

Voters in Turkey went to the polls on Sunday in what CNN referred to as a “game-changing” election.  A Wall Street Journal article said that the election could transform the state.  Thankfully, things didn’t work out well for Turkey’s President Erdoğan.

He’s the heart of the matter.  He’s been vying for absolute control at home and the resurrection of an Islamist empire since he became prime minister more than a decade ago.  I believe that he wants to become the new Saladin and rule the Middle East for starters, but that’s just conjecture at this point.

True to form, in advance of the election, Erdoğan slammed the “Jewish-backed media” for criticism of him.  Blaming Jews and Israel plays well among voters in Islamist countries and countries that are leaning in that direction.

A few days ago, Erdoğan declared his intention to “liberate Jerusalem”.  That kind of rant resonates with Islamists but not with ordinary Muslims.  So why would he say it?  He already has the Islamist vote in Turkey in his pocket.

The answer is telling.  He was talking to Islamists outside Turkey.  He wants their support for something bigger down the road.  Most of the time, the headlines don’t reveal what’s going on behind the scenes.

Many have tried to prevent Yahweh from fulfilling His promises.  All have failed.  That’s because Israel has a Protector.  His Name is Yahweh.  No one can dislodge or defeat Him.  Still they try, and they will continue trying until He appears in Person to put an end that kind of nonsense.

Erdoğan is responsible for the flotilla in 2010 that cost the lives of Islamists who challenged Israel’s Gaza blockade.  Truth is the Turkish flotilla was about one thing: boosting Erdoğan’s image at home and abroad especially among Palestinians and their ignorant supporters.

You have to be totally blind to reality or stupid not to see what Erdoğan has been up to. Obama and Erdoğan are good friends.  I’ll leave it at that.

Thankfully, Turkey’s ruling AK Party appears to have lost its parliamentary majority in Sunday’s election, and pro-Kurdish sympathies in Turkey may mean even more difficult sledding ahead for Erdoğan.  I hope so.

At present, Iran is capturing most of the headlines.  Iranian leaders have been playing games with President Obama since the day he took office, and they are still at it.  A top Iranian official said that there is “no trust” between the parties.  He’s right and for a good reason.

Iranian leaders can’t be trusted, period.  Every single one of them has been indoctrinated in Islamism of the Grand Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini variety.  They are evil, diabolical men who must be taught a lesson.  Regrettably, world political leaders don’t see it that way.  There is a high price to pay for that kind of stupidity.

Eventually, I think that Iran and Turkey will duke it out for supremacy in the Islamic world and the Middle East, but that’s down the road a bit.  Right now, they are pretending that ISIS is the real threat.

I’m not minimizing the importance of the ISIS threat.  I’m simply pointing out that the bigger threat is still developing.

Lawrence Franklin hit the nail on the head.  He said that “Iran will walk”.  Iranian leaders have been buying time.  They know that feelings fade and that the lust for money will eventually win over most of their adversaries.  By walking out of the negotiations at this point, the Iranians will win, and they know it.

A recent report said that Western officials were baffled by the continued growth of Iran’s nuclear stockpiles despite an “agreement”.  That just goes to show how foolish Western leaders are.  An agreement with the mullahs in Iran isn’t worth the paper that it’s written on.

Former U.S. Ambassador to the U.N., John Bolton, said that Israel must strike Iran soon.  Iran is the world’s problem, but the world wants Israel to do the heavy lifting.  It shouldn’t be that way, but it is.

Keep in mind that Iran has declared publicly on numerous occasions that it intends to “wipe Israel off the map”.  I believe that that’s exactly what Iranian leaders hope to do.  Thus, Israel has every reason to launch a preemptive strike in self-defense, but the world won’t see it that way.

The clock is ticking and it’s almost midnight.  Nothing that’s being done or discussed will change that.

Safe havens for Jews are shrinking fast.  Even the U.S. is in doubt as Rich Cohen points out:

If you go online and read the comments on any story about Israel or George Soros or search certain terms on Twitter, you begin to feel the golden age of the American Jews was just a moment in time. Perhaps the old paranoia stirs in me, but I see ominous signs everywhere: In an article about stubborn, black-hatted Jews who refuse to sit next to women on airplanes—a phenomenon I don’t believe is happening in a statistically significant way—which echoes depictions of Russian Ostjuden, strangers from the East condemned for making the rest of us look bad; in a review of an Ezra Pound bio, which makes the poet’s diatribes sound like quaint digressions. (“The poet’s vitriolic attacks on the banking system … have a particular resonance for twenty-first century readers: and however unworkable the solutions [emphasis added] Pound offered, his volcanic anger at the pain caused to ordinary men and women during the Depression by the greed and malfeasance of financial institutions allows us, Moody contends, to see the raging poet as a ‘flawed idealist’ whose quest to bring about more equitable systems of government [read: Fascism] was, at bottom, principled and decent, however tarnished by anti-Semitism.”) In imbroglios at UCLA and Stanford, where students have been asked to explain their affiliation with Jewish groups. According to a Trinity College study, 54 percent of Jewish students reported experiencing or witnessing ant-Semitism on campus.

President Obama? I don’t blame him, but I do think his disgust with Benjamin Netanyahu, which seems almost physical, as if repelled by the stink of the man, has given certain practitioners the sense that it’s safe to come into the open. It’s a frequent topic of conversation among my friends: Do you feel that chill? That sudden drop of barometric pressure? “That UCLA girl, the Orthodox airplane Jew … the message is slowly getting out, we are now post post-holocaust,” a friend emails. “It’s like leaves budding or animals leaving warrens or girls without coats; all these signs of it being OK, coming tentatively back into season again.” It’s as if Jews are bell-bottoms or fringed coats. Once upon a time, we’d been in fashion, but not anymore. What you have now is a return to the green-screen hatred, which, like malaria, spikes and remits but never goes away.

Jewish people have good reasons to be concerned.  Anti-Semitism is spreading like a brush fire in the desert.  It has already engulfed Europe, and America is leaning in that direction.

Although most Jewish people in the United States support him, Obama has been Israel’s worst enemy.  His shoddy treatment of Israeli Prime Minister Benyamin Netanyahu was aimed at all of Israel.  You can bet that he wouldn’t have treated any other world leader that way no matter how much he disliked him.

I’ll cut to the chase: I believe that Barack Obama is an anti-Semite.  He’s slick enough to fool people who should be smart enough to see through his shenanigans.  That’s shameful.

Fasten your seat belt and get ready for a bumpy ride.  When will the turbulence begin?

I don’t know for sure, but it could happen before we close the books on 2015.  That’s just a guess, and it won’t surprise me if it takes longer.

This is the bottom line: the world is heading for a collision with Yahweh.  That’s a battle that the world will lose.






13--Perspectives 2


Caroline Glick: Column one: Israel’s peace fantasists in action— The Saudis are in play, casting about for partners. In a clear vote of no-confidence in US President Barack Obama’s leadership, Saudi King Salman led several Arab leaders in blowing off Obama’s Camp David summit this week. The summit was meant to compensate the Sunni Arabs for Obama’s nuclear deal with Iran. Salman’s decision is further proof that US-Saudi relations have jumped the tracks. For 70 years the Saudis subcontracted their national security to the US military. Deals were closed with a wink and a nod. That’s all over now. Obama has destroyed Washington’s credibility. Salman views its gentleman’s agreements as worthless. All he wants now is military hardware. And for that, he can send a stand-in.

SnyderTalk Comment: Peace fanatics in Israel and other countries are delusional.  They have to ignore mounting evidence that we are heading for war, and I mean real war of the world war variety, to conclude that peace at this juncture is possible.

Pray for the best, but prepare for the worst.  That’s the only sensible thing to do.

Guy Millière: A Century of Genocides: Next Trigger-Man, Iran—The first priority of most Western governments today seems to sign a deal with Iran’s Supreme Leader, Ali Khamenei, who openly calls for Israel’s and America’s destruction. The next priority of many European governments, and apparently the Pope, is to entrust a state to the Palestinian Authority and Hamas, a movement that does not hide its genocidal intentions. Unless the Obama Administration and Congress stop Iran, we are about to witness the world’s next genocide, committed by Iran. By teeing up Iran’s nuclear capability and triggering a Middle East nuclear arms race, the U.S. and the negotiators of the P5+1 are creating conditions that can only lead to a disastrous war with catastrophic results.

Jonathan Tobin: How to Defend Israel? Talk About Rights. Not Just Security— Israel diplomats were reportedly shocked this week when their country’s new deputy foreign minister asked them to speak up about Israel’s rights in the conflict with the Palestinians rather than just its security needs. As the Times of Israel reports, Tzipi Hotovely raised more than a few eyebrows when she told a gathering of the country’s diplomatic personnel that it was a mistake to downplay the country’s own territorial claims when seeking to counter complaints about Israel’s presence in the West Bank and Jerusalem. The very idea of quoting the Torah when speaking of ties to the biblical heartland of the Jewish homeland seemed to strike them and left-wing commentators who howled about it later as absurd. Indeed, as the left-wing Haaretz put it, the world may find the minister “hard to swallow.” But while the Likud Knesset member is swimming against the tide of international opinion as well as the culture of the ministry she’s running, she is right. Though many in an international community increasingly influenced by anti-Semitism and misinformation about Israel will never accept such arguments, as the Palestinians have demonstrated over the last generation, talk of rights always trumps security. Hotovely, whose importance will be heightened by current the lack of a foreign minister (Prime Minister Netanyahu is reserving the post for himself while hoping to give it opposition leader Isaac Herzog should he join the government), is being dismissed as a right-wing extremists for even mentioning Jewish rights, but her critics would do well to heed her advice.

Douglas Murray: The Self-Appointeds: Who Put Them in Charge of Free Speech?— Something happened in America last week that cannot be passed over. There are two parts to it. The first is what happened. The second is what happened in response. On Tuesday, June 2, a 26-year old man, Usaama Rahim, was shot and killed by a Boston Police officer and FBI agent. Boston Police and federal law enforcement sources say that Rahim, who made a living as a security guard, was under surveillance. Officials believe that he was radicalized by ISIS and was planning to behead someone. One name that apparently came up in his conversations was that of blogger and activist Pamela Geller. However, Rahim subsequently appears to have decided to target what he called in one conversation the ‘boys in blue’ (the police). On the basis of Rahim’s conversations, the police and FBI anti-terror investigators decided it was time to move in. When they did so, Rahim threatened them with a military-style knife, and after refusing to give it up, was shot dead by a police officer and FBI agent.

Soeren Kern: Spain in the Eye of the Storm of Jihad— Spanish security forces have arrested a total of 568 jihadists over the past ten years in 124 separate operations against Islamic terrorism, Spanish Interior Minister Jorge Fernández Díaz revealed at an African security conference in Niger on May 14. Fernández Díaz said that “constant police and judicial actions” have helped Spanish authorities prevent another large-scale terrorist attack similar to the March 2004 Madrid train bombings, in which nearly 200 people were killed and more than 2,000 were injured. At the same time, Fernández Díaz has warned that it is “very probable” that Islamic terrorists will strike Spain at some point in the future; he has estimated the probability of an attack to be 70%.

Khaled Abu Toameh: Fatah’s Armed Militias Warn Israelis: “You Must Leave!”— Many in the international community often refer to the Palestinian Fatah faction, which is headed by Palestinian Authority (PA) President Mahmoud Abbas, as a “moderate” group that believes in Israel’s right to exist and the two-state solution. What these people do not know is that Fatah, the largest faction of the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO), consists of several groups that hold different views than those expressed by Abbas and other English-speaking Fatah officials. Some of these Fatah groups do not believe in Israel’s right to exist and continue to talk about the “armed struggle” as the only way to “liberate Palestine and restore Palestinian national rights.” One of these groups is called The Aqsa Martyrs Brigade – El Amoudi Brigade.

Khaled Abu Toameh: Who Is Blocking Palestinian Elections?— One year after Palestinian Authority (PA) President Mahmoud Abbas announced the establishment of the Palestinian Fatah-Hamas “national consensus” government, the two rival parties remain as far apart as ever. The “national consensus” government, headed by Prime Minister Rami Hamdallah, was formed after a series of “understandings” between Fatah and Hamas on the basis of previous “reconciliation” agreements between the two sides. A year later, it has become obvious that the “national consensus” government has failed to achieve its main objectives: the reconstruction of the Gaza Strip; ending the conflict between Hamas and Fatah, and preparing for new presidential and parliamentary elections. Fatah and Hamas can only blame each other for the failure of the latest attempt to end their dispute and do something good for their people. There is no way this time that they could lay the blame on Israel.

SnyderTalk Comment: The two-state solution doesn’t have a snowball’s chance in hell of working for many reasons not the least of which is that Palestinians don’t like each other and their Arab brothers don’t like them.  None of that has anything to do with Israel.

SnyderTalk Comment: Barack Obama has created problems that won’t be solved quickly or easily no matter who follows him in the Oval Office.  He is a joke, but he’s not funny.  The only people who seem not to get it are fools, Democrats, and peaceniks.

I don’t mind ridiculing Democrats and linking them with fools.  As a group, they booed God during their 2012 National Convention.  I’m just thankful that they didn’t know that His Name is Yahweh.  They would have booed anyway, but I’m still glad they were ignorant.

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.
