Yes, Persia, it is your destiny indeed …
Joel 3:12, “Let the nations be wakened, and come up to the Valley of Jehoshaphat; For there I will sit to judge all the surrounding nations.”
Ezekiel 38:5-22, “Persia … will be with them, all with shields and helmets … After many days you will be called to arms. In future years you will invade a land that has recovered from war, whose people were gathered from many nations to the mountains of Israel … This is what will happen in that day: When Gog attacks the land of Israel, my hot anger will be aroused, declares the Sovereign LORD … I will execute judgment upon him with plague and bloodshed; I will pour down torrents of rain, hailstones and burning sulfur on him and on his troops and on the many nations with him …”
By Reza Kahlili – “Iran’s supreme leader, for the first time, is telling his nation that it must prepare for war and ‘the end of times’ as it continues to develop nuclear weapons.
State-owned media outlets, in a coordinated effort, all ran a similar story Friday highlighting Ayatollah Ali Khamenei’s message on the coming of the last Islamic messiah.
Until now, the Iranian media would mostly quote clerics from seminaries on the issue of the last Islamic messiah to avoid the regime being labeled messianic. However, the wide publication of Khamenei’s statements on a need to prepare for the end of times as it confronts the West over its illicit nuclear program is alarming to Western leaders.
‘The issue of Imam Mahdi is of utmost importance, and his reappearance has been clearly stated in our holy religion of Islam,’ Khamenei said. We must study and remind ourselves of the end of times and Imam Mahdi’s era. … We must prepare the environment for the coming so that the great leader will come.’
Shiite theology holds that great wars must engulf the Earth, during which one-third of the world’s population will die in the fighting and another third from hunger, lawlessness and havoc. Israel is to be destroyed, and only then will the 12th imam, Mahdi, reappear and kill all the infidels, raising the flag of Islam in all corners of the world.
Under the guidance of Khamenei, several centers have been established in Iran on research and information on the coming of Mahdi, and a conference is held annually on Mahdiism.
‘Today we have a duty to prepare for the coming. … If we are the soldiers of the 12th imam, then we Read more…
Barack Obama Invites Egypt’s ‘Destroy Western Civilization From Within’ Islamist President To America
Proverbs 12:15a, “The way of a fool is right in his own eyes …”
By Manar Ammar – “CAIRO: United States President Barack Obama has invited his Egyptian counterpart Mohamed Morsi to visit the US for an official visit in September, Deputy Secretary of State William Perez said he delivered the message during his meetings with the president on Sunday.
For the Muslim Brotherhood candidate Morsi, this would be the first visit ever to the US by a Brotherhood member in an official capacity.
Obama previously congratulated Morsi for his victory in Egypt’s first-ever presidential elections. Obama also confirmed his country’s commitment towards democratic development in Egypt and the economy, offering his country’s support.
Obama made a congratulatory phone call when the results were announced late last month.
For his part Morsi sent a thank you note to the American president with Perez.
The Brotherhood, which was banned from political work for the past 60 years, are now holding Egypt’s top position, and were previously banned from holding talks with the US.
After the fall of now jailed President Hosni Mubarak’s 30-year iron rule, the group swept voting in the parliamentary elections and the presidential race when Morsi was up against military man Ahmed Shafiq, Mubarak’s last prime minister.
Despite the ban, the highly organized group had held meetings and talks with the US in recent years, maintaining relations with them.” Read more.

Egypt: Newly Elected President Defies Military Council, Orders Dissolved Islamist Parliament To Return
Associated Press – “CAIRO – Egypt’s official news agency says President Mohammed Morsi has ordered the return of the country’s Islamist-dominated parliament that was dissolved by the powerful military.
The Middle East News Agency said the Sunday decree from Morsi, a member of the Islamist Muslim Brotherhood, also called for new parliamentary elections to be held within 60 days of the adoption of a new constitution for the country, which is not expected before late this year.
Last month the then-ruling military generals dissolved the legislature based on a ruling by the Supreme Constitutional Court.
Morsi’s move appeared to be in defiance of the military’s ‘constitutional declaration’ announced on June 16 that gave it legislative powers and stripped Morsi of much of his presidential authority.

Muslim Brotherhood Supreme Leader Calls For Jihad Against Israel To ‘Save Jerusalem’ And ‘Cleanse Palestine’
By Raymond Ibrahim – “This would be the same ‘leader’ of Egypt’s new president, the Muslim Brotherhood’s Muhammad Morsi—and the man whom some have even portrayed as the true power behind Egypt’s presidency, with Morsi acting as his puppet.
According to last Thursday’s edition of Al Wafd, during his weekly sermon, ‘Muhammad Badi, the Muslim Brotherhood’s Supreme Guide, confirmed the necessity for every Muslim to strive to save al-Quds [Jerusalem] from the hands of the rapists [Israelis] and to cleanse Palestine from the clutches of the occupation, deeming this an individual duty for all Muslims.’
More specifically, he ‘called on all Muslims to wage jihad with their money and their selves to free al-Quds’—the same exact language one finds in al-Qaeda’s tracts.
If this is the position of the Supreme Leader of the Muslim Brotherhood, what can one expect from the Muslim Brotherhood president of Egypt?” Source – Jihad Watch.

The alleged al-Qaeda militant was caught crossing through the Olympic Park five times, breaking a ban imposed by the Home Secretary, The Sunday Telegraph has learned.
The 24 year-old has previously tried to get to Afghanistan, allegedly for terrorist training, and is suspected of fighting for the Somali Islamist group al Shabaab, which has been responsible for thousands of deaths, including those of Western aid workers. He is accused of trying to recruit other Britons to its cause.
A Home Office lawyer warned after his discovery in the Olympic area that the man – known as CF – wanted to ‘re-engage in terrorism-related activities, either in the UK or Somalia’ and is ‘determined to continue to adhere to his Islamist extremist agenda’.
His detention is the most serious security alert yet to hit the Olympic Park.
It is disclosed today after a week which saw 14 terror-related arrests across Britain, including a white Muslim convert detained over an alleged plan to carry out a major terrorist attack.
The Olympic Park in Stratford, east London, will be protected by the largest peacetime security operation ever seen in Britain when the event begins on July 27.” Read more.
