Biblical Numerology Reveals Stunning Connection Between Paris Conference, Gog and Magog

From Breaking Israel News

By

“And it shall come to pass in that day when Gog shall come against the land of Yisrael saith the Lord GOD that My fury shall arise up in My nostrils.” Ezekiel 38:18 (The Israel Bible™)

The Paris conference on Sunday, in which representatives from 70 nations met to sign an anti-Israel agreement, brought together many factors, all pointing at a final showdown that pits the 70 sons of Jacob against the 70 nations under Gog in a pre-Messianic war.
As the 70 nations gathered in Paris, many people were aware that the concept of 70 nations has its source in the 70 grandsons of Noah listed in the Bible.

These three were the sons of Noach, and of these was the whole earth overspread. Genesis 9:19

This Biblical concept of 70 nations reappears in ancient Jewish sources as the 70 nations that will rise up against Israel in the End of Days. The Talmud states that the gematria (numerical  value of the Hebrew letters) of Gog and Magog (גוג ומגוג) is 70. Gog and Magog are the nations that will be defeated by Israel, ushering in the Messianic era.

And there shall they bury Gog and all his multitude; and they shall call it the valley of Hamon (multitude) –gog. Ezekiel 39:11

This internal aspect of 70 contained within Israel was made apparent while the 70 nations were meeting in Paris. On the very same day of the conference, Jews all around the world were reading the specific section of the Torah in the first chapter of the Book of Exodus relating how 70 souls, the offspring of Jacob, went down to Egypt.

And all the souls that came out of the loins of Yaakov were seventy souls; and Yosef was in Egypt already. Exodus 1:5

The 70 nations, unified under Gog, will face Israel. Israel, though only one nation, is composed of the 70 children of Jacob, as a counterpoint to the 70 nations under Gog.
John Kerry, the US Secretary of State, attended the Paris conference to protect the interests of President Obama. Even though he only has five more days in office, Obama is playing a central role in unifying the 70 nations against Israel.

Obama’s ability to unify is hinted at in numerology. Joel Gallis and Dr. Robert Wolf, who wrote extensively about Obama in their blog, Redemption 5768, noted the gematria of the president’s full name, Barack Hussein Obama (בּרק חוסיין אובּאמה), is 501, equal to the gematria of the word ראש (head, or leader). The type of leader he was is revealed through another calculation: Obama’s first term was as the 44th president of the United States, and the 44th word in the Torah is ולחשׁך (and to the darkness).
“The gematria of Barack Obama בּרק אובּאמה is 357, just one short of the 358 of Mashiach (Hebrew for messiah),” Gallis and Wolf noted. “But the one that is missing is Hashem, the Master of the Universe who is one. Without God on his side, he is nothing but a false messiah.”
In an interview with Breaking Israel News before the elections, Rabbi Yosef Berger, the rabbi of King David’s Tomb on Mount Zion in Jerusalem, explained that the gematria indicates a connection between Trump and the Messiah, not that Trump himself is the Messiah.In contrast, it could be understood that president elect Donald Trump (who is 70 years old) stands in direct juxtaposition to the Paris conference of 70 nations which came just five days before he will be sworn in as the 45th president of the United States. The gematria of Trump’s full name in Hebrew (דונלד טראמפ) is 424, equal to ‘Messiah from the house of David’ (משיח בן דוד).
“He is connected to the Messianic process which is happening right now,” Rabbi Berger said in November. “When he promised to move the American Embassy to Jerusalem, he attached himself to the power of Moshiach, which gave him the boost he needed.”

Donald Trump

This is also hinted at by Trump’s choice for Ambassador to Israel: David Friedman, a strong supporter of Israel who advocates moving the US embassy to Jerusalem. In a remarkable coincidence, the gematria of Friedman’s name, דיוויד פרידמן, is also 424 and equal to ‘Messiah from the House or David”.
The meeting in Paris comes after the United Nations Security Council passed Resolution 2334, declaring it illegal for Jews to live in Judea, Samaria, the Golan, and Hebron. The resolution also grants a religious monopoly on the Temple Mount and the Western Wall to Islam.
The true nature of the UN resolution is also hinted at by numerology. Only Simchas, a religious website, wrote that 2334 in gematria is בגגד. In the rules of gematria, a repeated letter is for emphasis, turning בגגד into an emphatic בגד, which means ‘to betray’. By abstaining, US President Barack Obama betrayed his alliance with Israel, paving the way for the conference in Paris.

I will bless those who bless you

Views concerning Israel and Jews vary from person to person, culture to culture, country to country and most certainly religion to religion.  My view is the Biblical one.  If it ever comes down to choosing, it will be my choice to stand with Israel and defend along with Jews and Christians, our kindred faiths and shared holy land.  This is a centuries old battle driven by forces and a level of pure hatred men cannot begin to comprehend.  It is a war, as foretold in scripture, where the world stands aligned against Israel and now most interestingly displayed for us at the United Nations.  In the Bible, there is no mention of a United States of America.  There exists no accepted Biblical interpretation that I know of that identifies an entity recognized as the USA.  Biblically the USA does not exist.  Is it remarkable then that in the United Nations vote condemning Israel that the United States of America was silent – non-existent?  If you are Christian, you are Biblically bound to Israel.  Ultimately it is the people, not countries or tyrants, who will ultimately choose where to make their stand.

The Lord had said to Abram, “Go from your country, your people and your father’s household to the land I will show you.
 “I will make you into a great nation,
and I will bless you;
I will make your name great,
and you will be a blessing.
I will bless those who bless you,
and whoever curses you I will curse;
and all peoples on earth
will be blessed through you.”  Genesis 12:1-3

In my life, never have I seen a man who has laid bare his soul like Barack Obama.  He has peeled back all layers of the facade fully exposing the true man inside.  He began his flirtation with gullible Americans by declaring there is only one America, “a red, white and blue” America.  Then he proceeded to divide our country so much one would have to search the pre-civil war era to find anything comparable.  He declared his “Christian” faith countless times only later to mock scripture.  Since there has been no election on the horizon, he has not even tried to fake it.  Only God knows a person’s heart for certain, but actions are the language that usually defines what is in a man’s heart.  He also, up until after his re-election, declared his support for Israel.  However, his actions never supported that declaration either.  I do not believe he sets much store in God’s covenant with Abraham.  Someday he will have to answer up.  In his actions, he has been no more faithful to Christians than he has to the Jews.  For him, that leaves but few “faith” options.
It was a cowardly act waiting until the final days of a failed presidency to turn his back on Israel.  When your foreign policy sets the Middle East ablaze and increases the breadth and width of Islamic terrorism, what else is left except to set them all against Israel and ultimately the USA? It is disdain magnified by an administration filled by members of the Muslim Brotherhood, bringing willy nilly Middle East “refugees” into the country, and opening our borders to all comers.  This president will certainly have a legacy as will both of his Secretaries of State, one a power and money hungry hustler the other a life-long demonstrated anti-American who has now solidified his anti Israel world view by declaring in his speech, “Israel can either be Jewish or democratic, it cannot be both.”  I do believe Israel is a democracy not a theocracy
Years will pass undoing the damage done by this president and his minions to our country, the entirety of the Middle East and much of the world.  As a nation we are weaker than anytime I can recall – in my lifetime.  That makes it our most vulnerable and dangerous time.  We better be on the side of God.

Time For Israel To Walk Away From US Aid

 …And better serve the country’s security interests in the process.

Originally published by the Jerusalem Post

On Monday, acting head of the National Security Council Yaakov Nagel will sit down with his US counterpart, Susan Rice, and try to conclude negotiations about a new, multi-year defense assistance package.

We must all hope that he fails.

No clear Israeli interest will be advanced by concluding the aid deal presently on the table.

Indeed, the deal now being discussed will cause Israel massive, long-term economic and strategic damage. This is true for a number of reasons.

First, there is the issue of the deal’s impact on Israel’s military industries, which are the backbone of Israel’s strategic independence.

Under the current defense package, which is set to expire next year, a quarter of the US aid Israel receives is converted to shekels and spent domestically.

Reportedly, the deal now under negotiation will bar Israel from using any of the funds domestically.

The implications for our military industries are dire. Not only will thousands of Israelis lose their jobs. Israel’s capacity to develop its own weapons systems will be dangerously diminished.

Then there is the problem of joint projects.

Today, Israel receives additional US funds to develop joint projects, including the Iron Dome and David’s Sling short range missile and rocket defense programs. These programs were undertaken in response to threats that weren’t foreseen when the current deal was negotiated a decade ago.

According to reports, the deal now being negotiated denies Israel and the US the ability to fund jointly new projects or to provide supplemental funding for existing projects. All funding for all projects will be covered by the lump sum that is currently being negotiated.

Not only does this preclude new projects, it prevents Congress from exercising oversight over administration funding of existing joint projects with Israel. President Barack Obama has consistently tried to slash funding of missile defense programs, only to be overridden by Congress. Under the deal now on the table, Congress will be denied the power to override a hostile administration.

Given the obvious problems with the aid program currently being proposed by the Obama administration, there’s little wonder that until now, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has publicly stated that if necessary, Israel is ready to wait for the next administration. Some argue that Netanyahu’s apparent newfound interest in concluding negotiations on Obama’s terms owes to his fear that this is the best offer Israel is likely to get. Both Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump for various reasons, it is argued, will be less likely to offer significant increases in US military assistance.

Assuming this is accurate, the question becomes whether Israel has an interest in the assistance at all.

And so we come to the F-35.

For Israel, to a significant degree, the aid package on offer is about the F-35, the US’s fifth generation fighter, otherwise known as the Joint Strike Fighter.

Last month Defense Minister Avigdor Liberman and IAF Chief of Staff Brig.-Gen Tal Kelman flew to Texas to ceremonially “take possession” of Israel’s first two F-35s. Both aircraft are set to be delivered to Israel in December.

To date, the IAF has purchased 33 F-35s – all with US aid money. The IAF wants to purchase a total of 75 F-35s, which are supposed to replace the F-16s and the F-15s that the IAF currently fields.

As Liberman made clear during his visit, whether Israel purchases them or not is entirely dependent on the aid deal.

We should not take them. We should walk away.

And we should walk away even if we receive nothing in exchange for the planes we reject.

The F-35 is a disaster of epic proportions, for the US first and foremost. If Israel agrees to base its next generation fighters on the F-35, it will be a disaster for us as well. Although it is late in the game, we need to cut our losses.

To date, the F-35 has cost the US $400 billion.

That is twice what it was supposed to cost. The project is already four years behind schedule and still in development. It won’t be operational until May 2018 – at the earliest.

The F-35 is a jet that was developed by a committee and tasked with doing everything. So it isn’t surprising that it doesn’t work. In February, J. Michael Gilmore, the director of the Pentagon’s Operational Test and Evaluation office, submitted a scathing report to Congress on the F-35 program.

It is worth going through just a few of his findings.

The F-35’s calling card is its stealth capacity.

According to the engineers at Lockheed Martin, the JSF is supposed to be all-but-invisible to radar systems. Its stealth system is supposed to be far superior to the stealth capabilities of its third generation predecessors.

But at present, its stealth systems do not work, and it is unclear whether they will ever work as planned.

First there is the problem with the JSF’s cooling systems. The JSF is too hot. To prevent its single engine from melting down in flight, pilots are forced to open its weapons bays at high speeds and altitudes every 10 minutes. When the weapons bays are open, the stealth systems do not work.

Then there is the software. The F-35 is considered one big flying computer. It uses over 20 million lines of computer code. These codes are supposed to make it the most maneuverable and stealthy aircraft in history. The problem is that the codes are defective. The software programs that enable the plane to fly, maneuver, and engage in combat are all defective. So are the software programs that control the plane’s stealth capabilities.

And fixing them is not a simple process.

The fixed software systems can’t simply be attached to existing hardware – or to existing planes. The planes themselves have to be rebuilt to adjust to the new software. So the models that have already been produced, including the two F-35s that are set for delivery in December, will all have to be rebuilt before they will be combat ready.

And as a panel of US defense and aviation experts that convened in late February following the publication of Gilmore’s report noted, that too will take time and cost hundreds of millions of dollars.

Another major problem is that the F-35’s nerve center is dysfunctional and there is no clear path to fixing it. The F-35 is controlled by the Autonomic Logistics Information System. The ALIS is a central computer system, located in the US.

All F-35s all over the world will be required to log into the ALIS system to upload computer files after each flight and to check flight readiness. The ALIS is supposed to identify broken parts and help speed up repairs and handle mission data uploads.

ALIS has the capacity to prevent F-35s from taking off. ALIS can lock out pilots and ground crews if it sees danger. If this happens, maintenance technicians have to convince the computer that they either dealt with the issues the computer identified or that it was a false alarm.

Dan Grazier, a member of that panel, whose deliberations were reported by This Week, warned that this power renders the entire F-35 fleet vulnerable to hackers. If someone were able to convince the computer that something was wrong across the fleet, they might be able to keep all the F-35s grounded. Although the damage wouldn’t be permanent, it could continue long enough to cause the US or an ally to lose a battle or fail a mission.

For Israel, this vulnerability is prohibitive even if ALIS is ever made to work. The significance of ALIS control over all F-35s worldwide is that the US – and anyone able to hack the US system – will control the IAF. It will operate at the pleasure of the US government, and those able to hack US computers. They will be able to ground IAF planes whenever they wish.

This critical problem was acknowledged obliquely by Lt.-Col. Yotam, the commander of Israel’s first F-35 or Adir squadron, in an interview with Israel Defense in April.

Lt.-Col. Yotam said, “The maintenance concept of the Adir is based on international management and logistics in terms of spare parts and maintenance echelons.”

Israeli experts note that although in theory Israel will be able to crack the ALIS code and override it, it will take years to develop such a capacity. In the meantime, the IAF will become a contract employee of the US government whose operation is subject to US approval on a flight by flight basis.

The US Air Force, Marines and Navy are all trying to figure out how to deal with the deficiencies of the F-35. There is a vague hope that the US will develop a different fifth generation fighter.

More F-18s and A-10s will likely be ordered. Deputy Defense Secretary Robert Work told Fighting Global that he foresees using the current batch of F-15s into the 2040s. In other words, the US Air Force will deploy 70-year-old planes alongside the defective F-35s.

This, of course, is a disaster for the US. And if Israel goes ahead with the F-35 project it will be an even bigger disaster for us.

Back when the Pentagon convinced the Shamir government to scrap the Lavi project and purchase the F-16, the argument that won the day was economic. The Lavi was simply too expensive.

Today, both economics and strategic arguments indicate that the opposite is the case, even if walking away involves ending US military aid.

If Israel cuts its losses and begins to develop a fifth generation jet fighter that meets its own specific needs, rather than one designed by a committee to meet other countries’ needs poorly, it will end up both far safer and far more prosperous than if it goes ahead with the F-35 project. It will produce a better plane, better suited for Israeli defense needs, and simultaneously stimulate the growth of Israeli military industries, providing jobs for thousands of Israelis.

If Israel walks away from the military assistance package currently under discussion, it will be in a position to sign joint development deals with the US and other governments on a project by project basis and so ensure that we develop the weapons systems we need, not the ones the US thinks we should have, as we need them. Just as India is investing billions of dollars in joint projects with Israel, so will the US in the future.

It is far from clear that the US can afford its $400b. white elephant. It is abundantly clear that Israel cannot afford it.

Whether or not a Trump or Clinton administration will be more forthcoming is really beside the point. The point is that the US aid deal is really a deal for Lockheed Martin, not for Israel. And we need to say no.

Donald Trump Adviser’s Response To Rabbi Rick Jacobs’ Questions On Middle East Policy Raises New Concerns

7/07/2016

Contact: Lauren Theodore at 212-650-4154

New York, NY; July 7, 2016 — Rabbi Rick Jacobs, President of the Union for Reform Judaism (URJ), wrote an open letter yesterday to the campaign of presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump in response to campaign adviser David Friedman’s comments to CNN about a two-state solution in the Middle East.

Mr. Friedman’s comments about the campaign’s views on Israel mark a significant departure from the policies of the governments of both the United States and Israel, as well as the traditional positions of both the Republican and Democratic parties.

Mr. Friedman’s detailed reply to Rabbi Jacobs’ letter raises additional questions and concerns. The URJ has posted Mr. Friedman’s letter in its entirety below. Rabbi Jacobs has written annotations to the letter, which are shown as being attributed to Union for Reform Judaism (click on highlighted text to read the annotations).

Relatedly, earlier this summer, the Reform Movement provided testimony to the platform committees of both the Democratic and Republican parties, offering the perspective of the largest denomination in American Jewish life on a variety of issues, including American policy on Israel and the Middle East.

Though the Republican Party has not yet released a draft of its platform, the Democratic Party recently released a draft of its 2016 platform, to which the Reform Movement offered a brief response:

“In formal testimony to the platform committees of both parties, the Reform Movement called for the reaffirmation of U.S. support for a two-state solution. The recently released Democratic platform draft continues the tradition of U.S. support for Israel and for her security as well as the aspiration of a Palestinian state living side by side with Israel in peace and security for all. I hope that the Republican platform expresses similar support. Only two states can end the conflict and bring peace and security to Israelis and Palestinians alike. A two-state solution is our best hope for securing a Jewish and democratic future for the State of Israel.”

Rabbi Rabbi Jacobs is available to discuss these issues and the Reform Movement’s vision for a strong, secure, and democratic Israel.

                 July 6, 2016

Dear Rabbi Jacobs,

In your letter earlier today to Donald J. Trump and me, you state that you were “taken aback” by my comment that a “two state solution was an answer, but not the only answer,” to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.  I am happy to engage in a discussion with you on the subject, which I believe is more detailed and complex than either your letter, or my response below, can do justice. Nonetheless, I am happy to offer some brief summaries of my views.

That a two-state solution has been a part of American foreign policy for some length of time – something you place great weight upon — is, to me, entirely irrelevant. The wars in Vietnam and Iraq were also part of American foreign policy and I have no doubt that these were policies you opposed. As I’m sure you recognize, and as we witnessed this past week with the brutal murder of Hallel Ariel as she lay sleeping in her bed, followed the next day by the murder of Rabbi Michael Mark, a father of 10, the numerous proposals and initiatives for a two-state solution over the years have brought neither peace nor security to the State of Israel.

The issue confronting both the Israelis and the Palestinians is fundamentally humanitarian in nature. It is not political and it is not geographic. Both peoples are entitled to live in peace and dignity, and both peoples are being deprived of those fundamental rights because of one thing and one thing only – radical Islamic jihadism, a cancer that infects Israel and much of the rest of the world. No re-allocation of land will cure this scourge, and, indeed, Israel knew no peace from 1948 to 1967 when it did not even control Judea and Samaria.

So what should we do? Should we continue to force a square peg into a round hole and demand that Israel cede land to Palestinians in exchange for a naked promise that the Palestinians will change their behavior? Are you not concerned that Mahmoud Abbas has no electoral mandate (his term expired six years ago), and that his justification for not calling for new elections is that he will be replaced by an even more violent jihadist? Are you not concerned that Mr. Abbas presides over ceremonies honoring Palestinian terrorists or that he has been accused of massive fiscal corruption? Are you not concerned that Palestinians teach their children to hate and murder Jews, even putting on school plays enacting such despicable behavior? Are you not concerned that the Palestinian Authority has no ability to control the Hamas factions in Hebron, Jenin and Nablus, which continuously assault and kill Jewish people? Are you not concerned that the Palestinian Authority pays generous stipends to the families of terrorists who are jailed or killed after murdering Jews? Are you not concerned, after seeing the disastrous results of Israel’s withdrawal from Gaza, that a Palestinian state on the West Bank will bring missile attacks to the entire population of Israel?

I know that you have no doubt that the People of Israel want peace and that they are overwhelmingly well-intentioned, well-informed, and non-hateful. Given that, are you not concerned that your desire to divide Israel in two, leaving it without defensible borders, is solidly rejected by a super-majority of Israelis? Indeed, even many Palestinians now sensibly prefer Israeli rule to a nascent Palestinian state. Where but in Israel do Arabs have educational opportunity, first class healthcare, social and religious freedom and civil rights for women?

There are – and there must be — other “answers” to a two-state solution, some short term, some longer. I would begin by making appropriate demands upon the Palestinians to end terror, incitement and hateful indoctrination. I would condition further US funding on meaningful progress in this regard.  I would also encourage significant economic investment in Palestinian communities – a challenge given the difficulty of identifying non-corrupt leaders but still worth pursuing – to strengthen the Palestinian middle class. I would improve infrastructure and commit resources to enhance the quality of life for every inhabitant of the region. Simply put, I would focus on what most Palestinians and Israelis care the most about – better living conditions and better opportunities. If and when those initiatives bear fruit and tensions are reduced, talks could continue about long term solutions.

But, even then, I must reject categorically your statement that Israel must either be a democratic state or a Jewish state. The numbers simply do not support that conclusion. The Jewish population of pre-1967 Israel is now about 6.3 million out of 8.4 million people – about 75%. The Jewish population of Judea, Samaria and East Jerusalem is another 700,000 people out of about 2.4 million people (it may be lower as many think the Arab population is overstated). Thus, the Jewish population of the entire region is about 7.0 million out of 10.8 million – still a solid 65% majority. (By the way, many people quote all kinds of numbers for the West Bank population – these are, I believe, the most accurate)

I’m not saying, one way or the other, that a “one state solution” is the correct path. That is a decision for the Israeli people to make in consultation with the Palestinians. But it is simply not true that Jews will become a minority in their own land if a two-state solution is not implemented. Indeed, given the demands of the Palestinians for a return of so-called “refugees,” even the two-state solution they envision would provide no demographic certainty to Israeli Jews.

Let’s not grandstand this issue any more with “open letters” that I can’t help but feel have more to do with American politics than doing what’s best for Israel. Let’s have a cup of coffee (or some Israeli wine) and continue the dialogue.

Respectfully,

David Friedman

What Started The Arab Spring? Actually This One Woman Did.

Did you know you can trace the Arab Spring uprisings back to one Woman, and one particular incident? I did not know this. Very interesting. Probably wouldn’t have been much except we got involved and set the world on fire. Nice going Skippy.    

Skippy sets the world on fire.

‘I started the Arab Spring. Now death is everywhere, and extremism blooming’

Faida Hamdy confiscated a vegetable stall in Tunisia five years ago today. Neither she nor the rest of the world could have imagined the consequences

6:00AM GMT 17 Dec 2015

It is hardly surprising that when Faida Hamdy wonders whether she is responsible for everything that happened after her moment of fame she is overwhelmed.

Mrs Hamdy was the council inspector who, five years ago today confiscated the vegetable stall of a street vendor in her dusty town in central Tunisia.

In despair, that young man set himself on fire in a protest outside the council offices. Within weeks, he was dead, dozens of young Arab men had copied him, riots had overthrown his president, and the Arab Spring was under way.

As the world marks the anniversary, Syria and Iraq are in flames, Libya has broken down, and the twin evils of militant terror and repression stalk the region.

“Sometimes I wish I’d never done it,” Mrs Hamdy told The Telegraph, in her only interview to mark the occasion.

Hers is a voice that has been rarely heard: the family of the young man, Mohammed Bouazizi, became unwilling celebrities in the weeks after his lingering death, but a nervous regime arrested Mrs Hamdy when the protests began.

By the time she was acquitted of all charges and released, President Zine el-Abedine Ben Ali had fallen, and media attention was focused on Egypt, Libya and Syria.

“I feel responsible for everything,” she went on. Her voice was shaky as she spoke of the traumatic consequences, five years that have transformed the Middle East but seemingly changed very little in poor, provincial towns like Sidi Bouzeid.

“Sometimes, I blame myself and say it is all because of me. I made history since I was the one who was there and my action contributed to it but look at us now. Meanwhile, Tunisians are suffering as always.”

Mohammed Bouazizi’s death triggered some deep nerve in the Arab world. Many myths were told about his own story and that of Mrs Hamdy, as there were about the nature of subsequent uprisings and downfalls, but there remains a basic truth underlying his experience and that of many others.

Corruption, stifling bureaucracy, and repressive police states were holding back a largely youthful population across the region, and their victims had little way to make their frustrations felt other than extreme actions.

Subsequent studies found that self-immolation had already become a common act in Tunisia, accounting already for 15 per cent of all burns cases in Tunis hospitals. Within six months, more than 100 Tunisians had followed suit, and scores more around the Arab world, from Morocco to Saudi Arabia and Iraq, had also set themselves on fire.

Still, not many observers could have imagined the chaos that would ensue, even when Mr Ben Ali gave way to weeks of protest and boarded a plane for Saudi Arabia with his wife and a large chunk of the country’s gold reserves.

Next Hosni Mubarak of Egypt went, after 18 days of telegenic demonstrations in Cairo’s Tahrir Square. Then Col Muammar Gaddafi was forced out, after protests turned into civil war and then international war, with the West’s air forces joining in.

By the time he was bayoneted and shot in October 2011, Syria was in flames, and the West was starting to vacillate about its role, with effects that can still be seen today. Libya, Syria and much of Iraq remain failed states. Egypt is on the brink.

In the process a social uprising had turned into a conflict between Islamism, part peaceful, part violent, and secular governments and politicians; and then between religious sects, as Sunni and Shia turned on each other.

Despite Mrs Hamdy’s despair at the poverty that remains in Tunisia, the country is still seen as the sole success. It has had two general elections in the years since, with a moderate Islamist party, Ennahda, winning the first, before stepping into opposition in the face of an alliance between secular parties that included members of the former regime last year.

Ethnic Cleansing of Jews from the Arab World

My Comments:  Islam will not stop with the murder of Jewish folk, their goal is to murder anyone who doesn’t bow to Islam, Jews, Christians and any other “infidels.”  We need another Thomas Jefferson.

ethnic cleansing of Jews

The Holocaust Museum Defends Muslim Brotherhood Nazis

Muslim Nazis are the real victims of a new Holocaust.

BY DANIEL GREENFIELD FOR FRONTPAGEMAG.COM

MUSEUM

Daniel Greenfield, a Shillman Journalism Fellow at the Freedom Center, is a New York writer focusing on radical Islam.

The United States Holocaust Memorial Museum was tainted from the start.

Carter created the President’s Commission on the Holocaust to pander to the Jews after endorsing a PLO state. Then Carter complained that there were too many Jews on the Commission. One of the Jews he was complaining about was a Presbyterian with a German last name, but he was too bigoted to care.

The Museum hit a new low when the Clinton administration pressured its chairman to invite Arafat, a protégé of Hitler’s Mufti who had been trained to kill Jews by a former Nazi officer. It hit an even lower low when it brought in John K. Roth who had compared Israel to the Nazis.

Now the Holocaust Memorial Museum has rolled out an “Early Warning Project” to warn of the risk of mass killings and genocide.

According to the “Project,” Israel is not at risk of genocide. Its risk assessment is lower than the UK or Panama. If another Holocaust happens, it’s more likely to take place in London or Brazil. (But the EWP also claims that America and New Zealand are at a higher risk of mass killings than Cuba even though the Castro regime, unlike New Zealand Prime Minister John Key, actually engaged in mass killings.)

Despite the constant threats to destroy the Jewish State, Iran is also rated at low risk. Instead the Holocaust Museum claims that the real threat of genocide is in Egypt which is “experiencing a mass killing episode perpetrated by the current regime against the Muslim Brotherhood and oppositionists.”

Jews don’t face genocide in the Middle East. The Nazi-influenced Muslim Brotherhood does. Muslim Nazis are the real victims of a new Holocaust.

The Muslim Brotherhood was allied with Hitler. It distributed Arabic translations of Mein Kampf. Hitler’s Mufti, Haj Amin al-Husseini, who headed the Muslim Brotherhood’s affiliate in Israel, had personally met with Hitler, encouraged the extermination of the Jews and visited the gas chambers at Auschwitz.

The Mufti had preached genocide, encouraging Muslims to “get rid of this dirty race… Kill the Jews, burn their property, destroy their stores” making him one of the earlier promoters of BDS.

Five years after the Holocaust, Sayyid Qutb, the Muslim Brotherhood’s leading thinker, wrote a pamphlet titled, “Our Struggle with the Jews”. Qutb’s Muslim Brotherhood had been heavily influenced by Nazi Germany and the title and theme were deliberate echoes of Hitler’s Mein Kampf.

Qutb claimed that the Jews were the source of all evil. Like Hitler, he insisted that there was a struggle for world domination, except instead of a struggle between Aryans and Jews, it was a struggle between Muslims and Jews. He echoed Hitler’s claims that the Jews had invented sex and materialism and blamed them for everything from the Sunni-Shiite split to the fall of the Ottoman Empire.

The intellectual leader of the Muslim Brotherhood even insisted that Hitler had been an instrument of Allah to punish the Jews. The claim was recently repeated by Sheikh Qaradawi, the Brotherhood’s current Qutb, who said, “Throughout history, Allah has imposed upon the [Jews] people who would punish them for their corruption. The last punishment was carried out by Hitler. By means of all the things he did to them – even though they exaggerated this issue – he managed to put them in their place. This was divine punishment for them. Allah willing, the next time will be at the hands of the believers.”

The “believers” are the Muslims. As opposed to the unbelievers who are everyone else. The Muslim Brotherhood likes what Hitler did to the Jews, but it wants to carry out the next Holocaust on its own.

Or as Qaradawi put it, “count their numbers and kill them down to the very last one.”

If the Holocaust Memorial Museum’s Early Warning Project were really concerned about “genocide” in Egypt, it might have noted the Muslim Brotherhood attacks on Christians and churches.

It might have spoken up when video emerged of the Muslim Brotherhood’s former Egyptian president, Mohammed Morsi, urging his followers “to nurse our children and our grandchildren on hatred for them: for Zionists, for Jews.”

Egyptian children, “must feed on hatred; hatred must continue,” he said. “The hatred must go on for Allah and as a form of worshiping him.”

The Early Warning Project might have noted that the charter of the Muslim Brotherhood affiliate in Gaza, the terrorist group Hamas, states, “The Day of Judgment will not come about until Muslims fight the Jews”. And Hamas is doing its best to advance that date.

But instead the front page of the Holocaust Museum focuses on Syrian refugees. The piece on the Muslim migrants invading Hungary begins with the statement that, “In the 1930s, the world watched as Nazi Germany forced its beleaguered Jewish population to leave their homes.”

The piece is written by a Syrian who served as the Holocaust Museum’s Director of Special Events.

The Holocaust Museum has spent a good deal of time on Syria. It even hosts a paper describing the Muslim Brotherhood’s Sheik Moaz al-Khatib as “a well-respected, moderate Sunni cleric”. It leaves out his statement that Saddam Hussein’s positive legacy was “terrifying the Jews”.

The Museum obsesses over false Muslim claims that they are being persecuted by Buddhists in Burma and Hindus in India. It takes the time to visit Syria, but not Sderot. It puts up photos of Syrians, but not Jewish families murdered by members of genocidal Islamofascist terrorist organizations.

Despite all the propaganda, the Muslim Rohingya illegal aliens in Burma are not being exterminated. Muslim terror against Jews in Israel however is part of an ongoing campaign of genocide.

Hassan al-Banna, the founder of the Muslim Brotherhood, warned, “If the Jewish state becomes a fact, and this is realized by the Arab peoples, they will drive the Jews who live in their midst into the sea.”

“Kill the Jews wherever you find them,” the Mufti of Jerusalem had proclaimed. “Allah is with you.” Hamas declares that, “Killing Jews is worship that draws us close to Allah”.

There was a reason why Adolf Eichmann, the architect of the Holocaust, turned for sympathy to the Muslim world. “You 360 million Mohammedans to whom I have had a strong inner connection since the days of my association with your Grand Mufti of Jerusalem. You, who have a greater truth in the surahs of your Koran. I call upon you to pass judgment on me.”

The Holocaust Museum’s Early Warning Project is ignoring Muslim genocide aimed at Jews while promoting the bizarre myth that the Muslim Brotherhood is at risk of genocide. It couldn’t be any stranger if the Holocaust Museum had begun insisting that Neo-Nazis face genocide in Germany.

“Either this place will be a sanctuary, or it will be an abomination,” Elie Wiesel had said of the museum.

It did not take long for the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum to become an abomination. From its early days, a museum dedicated to teaching about the evil of the Final Solution instead became a platform for promoting the newest attempt to solve the “Jewish problem” with the Two-State Solution.

Now it approaches the final phase of the left’s Post-Holocaust Anti-Semitism where Muslims are transformed into Jews so that Jews may be transformed into Nazis to justify another Holocaust.

After all this time, the Holocaust Museum has decided that the Nazis were the real victims.

The Iran Deal

You won’t believe this stunning and credible theory on the secret Iranian nuclear side deals

Reposted from Dan Friedman

A note from a reader stuck a chord with me and I thought I’d pass it along, edited slightly for clarity:

John Kerry is lying when he claims he doesn’t know what is in the Iranian side deals. He would rather pretend ignorance than admit their contents.No one calls the ruling class on their lies. With a dysfunctional media — that is now fully intertwined with the government — the American people are left bereft of real news and thoughtful analysis.
We live in an alternate reality. Nothing is real, except their lies and only their lies. Lies are now the truth.
As for me, I believe the secret side deals with Iran are quite specific. Incredibly specific.
And I believe they call for an international military alliance and a protective force for Iran. An international force, sponsored by the United Nations.
And that deal is to protect Iran… from Israel.
We already knew this administration represented an existential threat to Israel, from its calls for pre-1967 “Holocaust borders” to its repeated intelligence leaks.
This sets the stage, ladies and gentlemen, for global aggression. Against Israel. And reprisals. Financial. Diplomatic. Even the boys in blue, firing their weapons for the very first time in recorded history

Hezbollah Imam is Father of US Marine

Mohamad al-Halabi supports Hezbollah, but was he also a member?
IMAM
By Joe Kaufman for FRONT PAGE MAGAZINE
Mohamad al-Halabi, the imam of the American Islamic Center of Florida and father of a United States Marine, has been using his Facebook page to propagate the same type of hatred and fanaticism that his center had forced on the community one decade ago. But the big question is, was he also involved in an international terrorist group?
The American Islamic Center of Florida or AICF was founded in the city of Boca Raton, Florida, in 2003, as the Assidiq Islamic Educational Foundation. Unlike the Sunni mosques which had already been established in Boca, Assidiq was of the Shiite variety.
In April 2005, Assidiq attempted to broaden its following by inviting the community to a free dinner banquet that the mosque was sponsoring at the Boca Center Marriott. But instead of gaining support for Assidiq, the mosque succeeded in alienating a good number of residents by featuring a neo-Nazi as a speaker at the event and a representative of a Hamas-related group as a ‘Guest of Honor.’
The neo-Nazi that the mosque brought to speak was William W. Baker.
In 1984, William Baker was National Chairman of the Populist Party, a white supremacist organization founded the same year by notorious Holocaust denier Willis Carto. Officials from the party included neo-Nazis and former leaders of the Ku Klux Klan. The previous year, in 1983, Baker had given a speech at a function run by the Christian Patriot Defense League, also a white supremacist outfit. Baker’s speech targeted Jews, referring to Reverend Jerry Falwell, a staunch supporter of Israel, as “Jerry Jewry” and discussing a trip he had taken to New York where the first people he came in contact with were “pushy, belligerent American Jews.”
The Hamas-related group was the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR).
CAIR was established in June 1994 as being part of the American Palestine Committee, an umbrella organization acting as a terrorist enterprise run by then-global Hamas leader Mousa Abu Marzook, who was based in the U.S. at the time. In September 2001, right after the 9/11 attacks, under a graphic of a burning World Trade Center, CAIR asked its followers to donate money to Hamas charity Holy Land Foundation (HLF) via a link on the CAIR national website. CAIR later was named a co-conspirator for two federal trials dealing with HLF and the raising of millions of dollars for Hamas.
Following the mosque’s neo-Nazi banquet, a little over a year later, Assidiq Islamic Educational Foundation incorporated under a new name, Florida Islamic Education Center. Two years after that, in June 2008, the mosque reincorporated using the name, Al-Huda Islamic Center. And in December 2012, the mosque reincorporated under its most recent name, American Islamic Center of Florida.
From the time the American Islamic Center of Florida (AICF) was founded, there have been three imams leading it. The latest has been Mohamad al-Ali al-Halabi, a radical cleric who was born and raised in Syria and received his Islamic education in Iran beginning in 1987.
Since immigrating to the United States in 1999, Al-Halabi has become a very important figure in the American Shiite community. He is the head of the Education and Research Department of the Imam Mahdi Association of Marjaeya (IMAM), and he sits on the Executive Committee for the Council of Shia Muslim Scholars in North America (CSMSNA).
On al-Halabi’s Facebook page, there are a number of disturbing posts.
This past March, al-Halabi posted a video of virulent anti-Semite Louis Farrakhan, praising Farrakhan, stating “This man is a brave one.” In the video, Farrakhan denounces America as a corrupt nation with blood on its hands. In another video al-Halabi posted, in September 2014, the Secretary General of Hezbollah, Hassan Nasrallah, refers to America as the “mother of terrorism” and the source of all terrorism in the world. Of this video, al-Halabi wrote, “Nice words.” Al-Halabi further posted different videos from Hezbollah’s television station, al-Manar.
Being that al-Halabi grew up in Syria, one would think that he would recognize the terror and devastation that Syria’s leader, Bashar al-Assad, has unleashed against his own people. Over 100,000 Syrian civilians have been killed at the hands of those loyal to the Assad regime. Yet, al-Halabi seems to be a big fan of Assad, posting a number of Assad propaganda pieces to his Facebook page. When Assad stated that the US only claims to fight terror and instead funds and arms ISIS, al-Halabi wrote of it, “Good points.”
In October 2012, al-Halabi posted a graphic on his Facebook page linking to a heavily anti-Semitic video, titled ‘Iran Bashing, Terrorism and Who Chose the Chosen People, Anyway?’
The video suggests that Jews will deliberately commit crimes against the US knowing they will be protected by “the Zionist-controlled Main Street Media;” that the US itself is controlled by Zionists; and that Jews are conspiring to hide certain details about the Holocaust which they do not want “the un-chosen people” to know about.
The video doesn’t just attack Jews. It also explicitly targets America. The video claims that, regarding sanctions placed on Iraq in the aftermath of Operation Desert Storm, “long before the events of 9/11, the United States led an act of international terrorism which is almost beyond belief.”
Al-Halabi’s extremism seems to be exhibited, as well, in much of his family.
Apart from the foul language and marijuana advocacy (‘The Stoner’s Cookbook’) found on her Facebook page, Al-Halabi’s daughter, Nour Ali, is not that different from her dad. She even posted the same Louis Farrakhan video to her Facebook page as he did. One of her ‘Likes’ is of a group devoted to “Condemning Aggression Against Syria.” The group devotedly posts various pictures of Nassrallah, Assad and Iran’s former terrorist leader Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini on its Facebook page. The group also posted a Hezbollah communique on its page and a photo of U.S. and Israeli flags burning with the caption, “Death to America, Death to Israel” on it.
Al-Halabi’s cousin, Hossin Hallak, posted onto his Facebook page pictures of Hassan Nasrallah, Bashar Assad, and Assad’s father, Hafez al-Assad, who like his son was directly responsible for the murders of tens of thousands of his fellow Syrians. Another al-Halabi cousin, Retha Albaiaty, posted pics of Nasrallah and Adolf Hitler.
Yet another al-Halabi cousin, Radwaan Alrahe, posted onto his Facebook site pics of Nasrallah (one he had as his Facebook profile photo), Assad and various dead terrorist “martyrs.” He also posted photos of himself dressed in full camouflage gear; wearing large magazine/ammunition holders; whilst brandishing an AKMS Kalashnikov rifle, a weapon-of-choice for Hezbollah fighters and those fighting for the Hezbollah-backed Popular Committees in Syria, where Alrahe is located. He further made statements as if he is preparing to join his martyr friends.
Al-Halabi’s nephew, Ahmed (a.k.a. Ahmed HD), is also a strong supporter of Hezbollah. In fact, he is a member of Hezbollah. Al-Halabi is close with his nephew, as they frequently message each other on Facebook. On different messages, al-Halabi offers prayers to Ahmed and asks if he’s alright. Under a photo, where Ahmed proclaims his membership in Hezbollah, al-Halabi wrote, “May God protect you and grant you victory…” Al-Halabi has posted a number of photos on Ahmed’s Facebook page, at least one of which has both of them together.
Question: Is al-Halabi’s nephew Ahmed attempting to emulate his uncle, when it comes to joining up with Hezbollah?
In June 2010, al-Halabi posted on his Facebook page a short piece about an experience he had following Israel’s Siege of Beirut, Lebanon, 28 years earlier, in June 1982. In Arabic, he wrote, “We stood in line in front of the people from recruitment for training, in order to defend Lebanon after the invasion of Beirut by the Israeli enemy. The youngest among us was 15 years old and the oldest was 60 years old. When we were asked, we had one answer: ‘We want to fight, and we want to liberate Lebanon and Palestine. We want to die with dignity.’”
Al-Halabi mentioned that, at the back of the volunteer line, there was a “helpless” person with “crippled feet pushing his wheelchair with his left hand and his right hand hidden in his sleeve.” According to al-Halabi, the crippled man told him that he had been “a survivor of the October War” and that he wished to use his injured body as a “sandbag” in order to “shield hero fighters” in battle.
Following the Israeli siege against the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO) in Beirut, the government of Iran put up money to pay for recruitment centers for a new militant organization made up of religious Shiites to compete with the largely secular Amal Shiite group. The organization would be called Hezbollah or Party of God, and its focus was in carrying out guerilla warfare against Israelis, who were conducting military activities in Lebanon.
At the time, a large percentage of the Beirut population was Palestinian. The “October War” that the crippled man was speaking of was the Yom Kippur War, which took place in October 1973.
If al-Halabi did indeed join Hezbollah, as his writing suggests, this would certainly have ramifications for his immigration status in the United States.
The U.S. Application for Naturalization (form N-400) asks, “Have you ever been a member of, or in any way associated with a terrorist organization?” And the U.S. Application to Register Permanent Residence or Adjust Status (form I-485) asks, “Have you EVER engaged in, conspired to engage in, or do you intend to engage in, or have you ever solicited membership or funds for, or have you through any means ever assisted or provided any type of material support to any person or organization that has ever engaged or conspired to engage in sabotage, kidnapping, political assassination, hijacking, or any other form of terrorist activity?”
In October 1983, a little over one year following Israel’s siege, Hezbollah suicide bombers carried out an attack against U.S. Marine barracks stationed in Beirut, which left 241 American servicemen dead – a terrorist assault against the U.S. only second in scope to 9/11.
After all the activities documented above, it is both ironic and disturbing to discover that Mohamad al-Halabi’s son, Mahmoud Ali, is presently serving in the United States Marines. A photo of him donning Marine gear is found on his sister’s Facebook page.
In May 2014, al-Halabi posted a photo on Facebook containing himself, Mahmoud and his Hezbollah nephew, Ahmed. In December 2014, al-Halabi posted a Facebook photo of himself and Mahmoud, with a caption that read, “Like father like son.” There is a strong possibility that these words could have more than a ring of truth to them, as the son would have to live in a bubble not to know of his family’s support and involvement with a terrorist organization.
Therefore, it is imperative that every individual in this article gets thoroughly investigated. If any one of them living in the U.S. is or has been involved with Hezbollah, they need to either serve jail time or be deported.
When it comes to openly glorifying terror, America, its armed forces, and its law enforcement agencies cannot afford to look the other way.
