Turkish Prime Minister Erdoğan — The Man Who Could Trigger a World War — Asks Obama to Reconsider Palestinian Vote

09/23/2011 4 comments

“Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdoğan has expressed hope for a favorable UN Security Council outcome that would grant full membership to Palestine and recognize its statehood, as he had requested the US president to reconsider a predicted US veto of the Palestinian bid.

‘Palestine needs nine votes in the UN Security Council; it would be a great development for them if they manage to get the votes,’ Erdoğan told Charlie Rose, a host on the US-based PBS television during an interview the channel aired on Wednesday. The Turkish premier noted that in case Palestine, whose sovereignty Turkey strongly supports, fails to get the votes it needs for full UN membership, it would apply to the General Assembly for an observer state status much like that of the Holy See in the international body.” Read more.

The man who could trigger a world war – “The greatest threat to the world’s peace, at this moment, comes from a man named Recip Tayyip Erdogan. He is the prime minister of Turkey, at the head of the Justice and Development Party (‘AK,’ from the Turkish). A former mayor of Istanbul, he was arrested and jailed when he publicly recited Islamist verses (‘the mosques are our barracks, the domes our helmets, the minarets are our bayonets,’ etc.), in defiance of the old secularist, Ataturk constitution, which made it an offence to incite religious and racial fanaticism… The West is just watching, while Erdogan creates pretexts for another Middle Eastern war: one in which Israel may be pitted not only against the neighbouring states of the old Arab League, but also Turkey, and Iran, and Hamas, and Hezbollah. This is what is called an ‘existential threat’ to Israel, unfolding in live time. It could leave the West with a choice between defending Israel, and permitting another Holocaust. In other words, we are staring at the trigger for a genuine world war. With Recip Erdogan’s twitching finger on it.” Read more.

Turkey Still Receives Cordial Treatment From Obama Administration Even While Declaring It Is Now ‘Too Late’ For Mediation With Israel – “As Turkey’s leaders intensify efforts to isolate Israel internationally, the cordial treatment they are receiving from the Obama administration this week will add to concerns some Americans have about the strength of its support for Israel… While Israeli leaders have expressed a desire to heal the rift between the one-time allies, Turkey imposed sanctions on Jerusalem and declared its intention to use all international forums to make its views on Israel known.” Read more.

Ahmadinejad’s Apocalyptic Address

09/23/2011 2 comments

Notice very carefully the title that the Iranian President bestows upon the awaited “perfect human being” of Islam, called “Imam al-Mahdi.”  Ahmadinejad declares this individual to be “the Ultimate Savior of mankind” and one whom all societies of the world would be wise to follow.  According to true Biblical Scripture, however, God declares in Isaiah 43:11 that “I am the Lord, and apart from me there is no savior.”  In the eyes of God, anyone who is proclaimed to be — or proclaims himself to be — the “Savior of mankind” would not only be speaking “great words against the Most High” by calling God a liar in denying Christ alone as Savior, but would also therefore be claiming to be God by attributing to himself a title that only God can hold:

2 Thessalonians 2:3-4, “Let no one deceive you by any means; for [that Day will not come] unless the falling away comes first, and the man of sin is revealed, the son of perdition, who opposes and exalts himself above all that is called God or that is worshiped, so that he sits as God in the temple of God, showing himself that he is God.”

Daniel 11:38-39, “But in his estate shall he honour the God of forces: and a god whom his fathers knew not shall he honour with gold, and silver, and with precious stones, and pleasant things. Thus shall he do in the most strong holds with a strange god, whom he shall acknowledge [and] increase with glory: and he shall cause them to rule over many, and shall divide the land for gain.”

Daniel 11:37-38 reveals that a Last Days ‘Antichrist’ figure will not regard “the God of his fathers” but will instead honor “a god whom his fathers knew not.” Many Arabs and Muslims are descendants of Ishmael, whose father was Abraham. To not regard “the God of his fathers” means, in my opinion, that this Last Days ‘Antichrist’ figure will not regard YHWH the true God of Abraham (and Ishmael, whom God took care of after he and Hagar were sent away), but will instead honor a god whom they never knew, one that is forced upon the inhabitants of all nations surrounding Israel in the eschaton, and in increasing measure upon the world, whom they refer to as ‘Allah’ …

By Joel C. Rosenberg – “Mahmoud Ahmadinejad is not a world leader worthy of the world stage. He is the evil leader of an Iranian death cult. A new U.N. report indicates that he is making progress in building nuclear weapons. He has predicted the arrival of the Twelfth Imam and called for wiping Israel ‘off the map.’ He aspires to be a mass murderer beyond the scale of history’s great dictators. He deserves to be in prison, or an insane asylum. His speech on Thursday before the United Nations General Assembly was further proof, if any more were needed.

Did you see Ahmadinejad’s apocalyptic address, or read the full text? You should. It’s instructive. Unfortunately, you won’t find Ahmadinejad’s full speech reprinted in the major newspapers. It was pitifully covered by the mainstream media. It should have been carefully analyzed.

Ahmadinejad isn’t hiding what he believes. He denied the Holocaust. He blasted the U.S. for bringing Osama bin Laden to justice. He blamed the terrorist attacks of 9/11 on the U.S. government. He insisted that his so-called messiah known as ‘Imam al-Mahdi’ or the Twelfth Imam is coming soon. He insisted that Jesus Christ will come with the Mahdi to take over the world. He called for ‘the shared and collective management of the world.’

Consider this excerpt:

This movement is certainly on its rightful path of creation, ensuring a promising future for humanity. A future that will be built when humanity initiates to [tread] the path of the divine prophets and the righteous under the leadership of Imam al-Mahdi, the Ultimate Savior of mankind and the inheritor to all divine messengers and leaders and to the pure generation of our great Prophet. The creation of a supreme and ideal society with the arrival of a perfect human being who is a true and sincere lover of all human beings, is the guaranteed promise of Allah. He will come alongside with Jesus Christ to lead the freedom and justice lovers to eradicate tyranny and discrimination, and promote knowledge, peace, justice, freedom and love across the world. He will present to every single individual all the beauties of the world and all good things which bring happiness for humankind.

Though most world leaders do not appear to understand what Ahmadinejad is really saying, students of Shia Islamic eschatology, or end-times theology, do. The Iranian leader believes the end of the world as we have known it is increasingly close at hand. He believes the time for establishing an Islamic caliphate, or global government ruled by the Mahdi, is rapidly approaching. What’s more, he believes that the way to hasten the coming of the Twelfth Imam is to acquire nuclear weapons and use them to annihilate the United States, which he calls the ‘Great Satan,’ and Israel, which he calls the ‘Little Satan.’

Israeli prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu understands what Ahmadinejad means. So do some of his top military advisers. That’s why they believe Iran is in the eye of a gathering storm in the Middle East, and the chance of a major war is growing.” Read more.

Israel: Clashes Begin in the West Bank as Palestinians Submit UN Statehood Bid, Will Not Recognize a Jewish state

By AMY TEIBEL and MOHAMMED DARAGHMEH – “UNITED NATIONS (AP) — Defying U.S. and Israeli opposition, Palestinians asked the United Nations on Friday to accept them as a member state, sidestepping nearly two decades of troubled negotiations in the hope this dramatic move on the world stage would reenergize their quest for an independent homeland.

In the West Bank, the core of that hoped-for state, a Palestinian man was shot dead in a clash with Israeli soldiers and settlers as antagonisms flared over the statehood bid.

Earlier in the week, Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas rebuffed an intense, U.S.-led effort to sway him from the statehood bid, saying he would submit the application to U.N. chief Ban Ki-moon as planned.

‘We’re going without any hesitation and continuing despite all the pressures,’ Abbas told members of the Palestinian diaspora at a hotel in New York on Thursday night. ‘We seek to achieve our right and we want our independent state.’ Shortly before noon on Friday, Ban’s spokesman tweeted, ‘President Abbas just handed the Palestinian application to the Secretary-General UNSG.'” Read more.

Bloodshed in West Bank before Abbas speech – “Israeli security forces shot dead a Palestinian in the West Bank on Friday during a confrontation between Palestinians and settlers in the village of Qusra, a local Palestinian official said. Hany Abu Murad, the mayor of the village where the violence occurred, named the dead person as Essam Kamal Badran, 35. The incident occurred in Qusra, southeast of the Palestinian city of Nablus. Earlier Friday, violence broke out in and around the East Jerusalem area on Friday when Palestinian youths hurled rocks at security forces in the neighborhood of Ras Al-Amud.” Read more.

Abbas: ‘I respond to them with a final answer. We shall not recognize a Jewish state’ – “Friday afternoon, Abbas said he is adamant about not recognizing Israel as the Jewish state. ‘They talk to us about the Jewish state, but I respond to them with a final answer: We shall not recognize a Jewish state,’ Abbas said in a meeting with some 200 senior representatives of the Palestinian community in the US, shortly before taking the podium and delivering a speech at the United Nations General Assembly. The Palestinian leader, who appeared fatigued, shared with his audience the global pressures exerted on him in an effort to prevent him from presenting the PA’s statehood bid at the Security Council.’We are withstanding these pressures, and I’m telling you that I am going to the Security Council and will never change my mind, regardless of the pressure,’ he said.” Read more.

NASA UARS Update: Falling Satellite’s Orientation Has Changed, Cannot Rule Out Falling in the US, Another Coming Down in November

Update 9/24/2011: NASA says satellite fell over Pacific Ocean – “NASA’s dead six-ton satellite fell to Earth early Saturday morning, starting its fiery death plunge somewhere over the vast Pacific Ocean. Details were still sketchy, but the U.S. Air Force’s Joint Space Operations Center and NASA say that the bus-sized satellite first penetrated Earth’s atmosphere somewhere over the Pacific Ocean. That doesn’t necessarily mean it all fell into the sea — although most of it is believed to have burned up. There are a myriad of unconfirmed reports, including video that purportedly shows the satellite breaking up over Canada.” Read more.

Another large satellite may fall from sky in October or November – “Since its launch on 1 June 1990, friction due to Earth’s upper atmosphere has been causing the X-ray satellite ROSAT to lose altitude continuously. When the spacecraft re-enters the atmosphere, which is expected to occur in November 2011, the satellite will disintegrate and most of the fragments will burn up in the extreme heat caused by atmospheric friction.” Read more.

November event potentially more dangerous – “… Wherever the [UARS] spacecraft lands, it will give the relevant authorities valuable experience ahead of a potentially more dangerous event in early November, when the German Rosat satellite re-enters at 28,000kph. The German space agency, DLR, said up to 30 pieces of the spacecraft might survive re-entry, with a combined mass of more than one-and-a-half tonnes.” Read more.
