‘Turkish Summer’? Fiercest Anti-Government Protests In Years Erupt In Istanbul, Scores Wounded After Police Attempt To Disperse Demonstrators

05/31/2013 3 comments

First it was the “Arab Spring”. Now it’s the “Turkish Summer”. Tip of the hat to Kurt J for the link, who also points out that even though every Arab Spring protest initially began with elements of liberalism and the hope of true democratic freedom, the end result was the ousting of one dictatorship being replaced by another that was much worse. Turkey will get tough to douse the flames of protests, but too much force will only add fuel to the fire. And if recent history is any indicator, any potential removal of Erdogan and the current government may only result in another that is even more Islamist than the one it replaces …

By Ayla Jean Yackley, Reuters –  “ISTANBUL (Reuters) – Turkish police fired tear gas and water cannon on Friday at demonstrators in central Istanbul, wounding scores of people and prompting rallies in other cities in the fiercest anti-government protests for years.

Thousands of demonstrators massed on streets surrounding Istanbul’s central Taksim Square, long a venue for political unrest, while protests erupted in the capital Ankara and the Aegean coastal city of Izmir.

Broken glass and rocks were strewn across a main shopping street near Taksim. Primary school children ran crying from the clouds of tear gas while tourists caught by surprise scurried to get back to luxury hotels lining the square.

The unrest reflects growing disquiet at the authoritarianism of Prime Minister Tayyip Erdogan and his Islamist-rooted Justice and Development Party (AKP).

Riot police clashed with tens of thousands of May Day protesters in Istanbul this month. There have also been protests against the government’s stance on the conflict in neighboring Syria, a tightening of restrictions on alcohol sales and warnings against public displays of affection.

‘We do not have a government, we have Tayyip Erdogan … Even AK Party supporters are saying they have lost their mind, they are not listening to us,’ said Koray Caliskan, a political scientist at Bosphorus University who attended the protest.

‘This is the beginning of a summer of discontent.’

The protest at Taksim’s Gezi Park started late on Monday after trees were torn up under a government redevelopment plan but has widened into a broader demonstration against Erdogan’s administration. Friday’s violence erupted after a dawn police raid on demonstrators who had been camped out for days.

‘This isn’t just about trees anymore, it’s about all of the pressure we’re under from this government. We’re fed up, we don’t like the direction the country is headed in,’ said 18-year-old student Mert Burge, who came to support the protesters after reading on Twitter about the police use of tear gas.

‘We will stay here tonight and sleep on the street if we have to,’ he said.” Read more.

Part 1: If Mystery Babylon Is Not Rome, Then Who Is It?

05/31/2013 13 comments

Here is a great article by Walid Shoebat that everyone needs to read in full. As we all know, Satan does everything in his power to counterfeit, corrupt and conceal truth. As noted in my Mark of the Beast article, the Church of God — the assembly of His people — is called the “Ekklesia” in Scripture and in terms of location is identified with Jerusalem, the epicenter of the Judeo-Christian faith. If the “Bride” of Christ is identified and associated with the city of “Jerusalem” (Rev. 21:9-10, “… I will shew thee the bride, the Lamb’s wife… and shewed me that great city, the holy Jerusalem, descending out of heaven from God”) then it only stands to reason that Satan’s counterfeit of the Church — the “Babylonian Harlot” — would also be associated with a city of her own. From the preponderance of the evidence that we are given throughout Scripture, the desert “harlot” identified by John in Revelation 17 is associated with the epicenter of Islam itself. Whereas the Judeo-Christian faith arose out of and looks toward Jerusalem, Islam arose out of and looks toward the city of Mecca, the spiritual homestead of the “Ummah” (the Muslim world). And if the “Judeo-Christian Bride” of Scripture is also defined as the “Body of Christ”, whose body does the antithetical “Babylonian Harlot” make? …

Revelation 17:1, “Then one of the seven angels who had the seven bowls came and talked with me, saying to me, ‘Come, I will show you the judgment of the great harlot who sits on many waters …'”

By Walid Shoebat – “When it comes to Mystery Babylon, the common tendency amongst many Protestant theologians is to liken it to Rome. According to them, Rome is the city of seven hills. Others even equate it with Iraq, since this was home to the original Babylon. Years ago, many books were written about Saddam Hussein, who was allegedly hard at work, rebuilding Babylon. Christians gobbled up the books without truly examining the evidence. Saddam was simply rebuilding a tourist attraction where Nineveh once stood, the project was later abandoned and Saddam died on the gallows along with the prophecy books that included his name.

But when presenting a multitude of biblical evidence, people still angrily deny this interpretation because they have etched in their minds a verse or two insisting it’s still Rome, while adhering to a centuries-old theory initiated by Martin Luther. That plus today’s Catholics do not bite. In fact, a clue to the real Babylon was just presented in an article by Aaron Klein when he stated this week that:

“Forces in the Persian Gulf and Arab intelligence services have noted the establishment of Iranian missile launch sites aimed in the direction of Saudi Arabia and Qatar, according to Egyptian and Jordanian intelligence officials speaking to WND.”

Yet, no one in the prophecy arena has even raised a single red flag about the significance of this report; Iran (biblical Elam) must destroy Arabia. In Isaiah 21:9, Isaiah levels a prophetic oracle against Babylon using the same announcement in Revelation 18:1-2 and Revelation 14:8: “Babylon is fallen, is fallen”:

“The burden against Dumah” (Isaiah 21:11)
“The burden against Arabia” (Isaiah 21:13)
“All the glory of Kedar will fail” (Isaiah 21:16)

These are all in Arabia, which is destroyed by Iran “Elam” (Isaiah 21:2)

There has been an immense oversight by many in the field of biblical eschatology; that when it comes to the destruction of end-days Babylon, Scripture makes no mention of any of the ancient Babylonian cities: Nineveh, Ur, Babel, Erech, Accad, Sumer, Assur, Calneh, Mari, Karana, Ellpi, Eridu, Kish, or Tikrit. All of the literal references in Scripture are in Arabia.

The use ‘MOTHER OF HARLOTS’, while it is commonly attributed to the Vatican’s Mariology with the worship of Ishtar, history records that the worship of Ishtar ‘Kilili’, or ‘Queen of Harlots’ [1] originated from Arabia, not Rome. In fact, when Muslims roam roundabout the black stone, it is a throwback to the worship of Ishtar, whom they called Athtar and Allat.

When it comes to the Harlot woman, the Kaaba is a perfect match. The black tarp is considered by Muslims to be a woman’s dress (Kiswa) as Edward Gibbons elaborated:

“…the kuswa of the magnificent Kaaba, is what is used for clothing of a [virtuous] covering, on top of it, it is written, the Kaaba’s dressing, meaning ‘we have dressed her her dress.” [2]

Everything that the harlot is described it fits the Ka’ba; dress, pearls, jewels, gold, silver and even the blasphemies etched in silver threads with golden inlays across her attire. Just the doors of the Ka’ba alone has Read more…

French Firms See Rising Religious Demands At Work From Muslims

05/30/2013 Leave a comment

The tree of multiculturalism bears a bitter fruit …

By Tom Heneghan, Reuters – “Close to half the staff managers at companies in French urban areas have seen problems arising from religious demands by employees and expect them to increase in future, according to a new study issued on Tuesday.

Listing faith-related problems, the new study said some men refused to take orders from a woman boss or shake hands with women and some refused to handle alcohol or pork products.

Other problems include employees wanting to pray or wear religious garb at work. Some employees try to impose their religious standards on colleagues, such as preventing non-observant Muslims from eating at work during Ramadan…

‘These initial results show the issue of religion at work exists and is not a marginal question,’ concluded the study, which said 43 percent of staff managers saw faith-related work problems and 41 percent expected to encounter more in future…

While politicians from both left and right have been calling for clearer guidelines, the study showed only 12 percent of human resources managers and no more than two percent of middle managers thought stricter laws would solve most problems.” Read more.

‘Religious Cleansing’: More Than 100,000 Christians Are Violently Killed Every Year, And The Numbers Are Increasing

05/30/2013 1 comment

Revelation 14:12, “Here is the patience of the saints; here are those who keep the commandments of God and the faith of Jesus.”

By Cristina Corbin, Fox News – “A staggering 100,000 Christians are killed annually because of their faith, according to the Vatican — and several human rights groups claim such anti-Christian violence is on the rise in countries like Pakistan, Nigeria and Egypt.

‘Credible research has reached the shocking conclusion that an estimate of more than 100,000 Christians are violently killed because of some relation to their faith every year,’ Vatican spokesman Monsieur Silvano Maria Tomassi said Tuesday in a radio address to the United Nations Human Rights Council.

‘Other Christians and other believers are subjected to forced displacement, to the destruction of their places of worship, to rape and to the abduction of their leaders, as it recently happened in the case of Bishops Yohanna Ibrahim and Boulos Yaziji, in Aleppo [Syria],’ Tomassi said.

While several human rights groups could not comment specifically on the Vatican’s number, organizations, like Persecution.Org, said the persecutions of Christians have been on the rise in places like Africa and the Middle East over the last decade.

‘Two-hundred million Christians currently live under persecution. It’s absolutely on the rise,’ Jeff King, the group’s president, told

‘It’s easing in the old Communist world and it’s rising in the Islamic world,’ King said, noting in particular countries like Egypt, Pakistan and Nigeria. King said that the first major killing spree in recent years happened between 1998 and 2003, when he claims 10,000 Christians were murdered in Indonesia alone during those years.” Read more.

He makes his objective clear.” Read more.

UK’s Woolwich Beheader: Non-Muslims Are Filthy Pigs, ‘Do Not Be Scared Of Them, Or Police, Or Cameras … You Are Here To Please Allah’

05/30/2013 1 comment

By ARTHUR MARTIN and MARIO LEDWITH, Mail Online – “Woolwich terror suspect Michael Adebolajo was filmed encouraging 1,500 followers to turn against Britain in a hate-filled rant on the anniversary of 9/11.

Video footage unearthed by the Daily Mail shows the alleged killer addressing a crowd of young Muslims outside a mosque in north London.

Standing on a platform above a large crowd, Adebolajo yells: ‘Do not be scared of the filthy kuffar [non-believers]. They are pigs.’

Moments after his speech – delivered in 2009 on the eighth anniversary of the September 11 attacks on New York and Washington DC that left nearly 3,000 dead – some of the crowd hurled bricks and fireworks at the police.

Film of the extremist rant follows the revelation – the day after the slaughter of Drummer Lee Rigby last week – of photos of Adebolajo standing behind hate preacher Anjem Choudary outside Paddington Green police station six years ago.

It prompted MPs to call for an inquiry into what MI5 knew about Adebolajo and the other terror suspect Michael Adebowale.

The emergence of the video shows for the first time the prominent role Adebolajo played as an Islamic radical.

It is bound to raise further questions over whether the police and the security services should have intervened earlier.” Read more.

Unemployed And Christian In Egypt: ‘When I Apply To Any Job And They Know That I’m Christian, They Refuse Me’

05/30/2013 3 comments

Revelation 13:17, “… no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.”

WorldWatch Monitor – “It’s harder than ever to find a job in Egypt, where the unemployment rate has risen to a record 13 percent. For young Egyptians, the jobless rate is much higher.

For out-of-work Christians, finding a job can be especially tough. They are 10 to 12 percent of a country where Islam is the state religion. The Muslim Brotherhood’s Freedom and Justice Party holds the highest offices in the government. When quarreling citizens arrive at legal loggerheads, the new constitution turns to Islamic law to resolve the impasse. In the streets, kidnappings for ransom are increasing and churches are often attacked and burned

At ground level, Egyptian Christians use a more personal language to describe their place in the economy. World Watch Monitor spoke with three Cairo Christians who are looking for work, and their comments are below. Each of them asked not to be photographed or identified in full. Publicly criticizing a system they view as favoring Muslims, they said, would only make the long odds against finding a job even longer.

  • Name: Not provided
  • Age: 37
  • Qualifications: Bachelor of Agriculture, Cairo University, 1998. Finished military service in 2000.
  • Personal: Married, one child

It was difficult to find work even before the 2011 popular uprising that forced President Hosni Mubarek out of office, he said…

‘I read the daily jobs advertising in the Egyptian newspapers to look for a job in my field. I applied for many governmental jobs but really I couldn’t get any one.

‘For example, one day I read a job advertising ‘Job contest’ in a newspaper related to my field. The Ministry of Agriculture was seeking agricultural engineers, and all the required qualifications like the age, degree, were very suitable for me to get this job. Really I was very qualified to get this job.

‘So I immediately went to the Ministry of Agriculture and filled in its job application and presented a copy of all my papers — qualification, birth, military service, identity card.

‘And they asked all the applicants to come after one month to see the result of the job contest. After one month I went to the Ministry and I looked at the paper of names, which was hung on the wall of the ministry building, but I didn’t find my name among them. All the names were Muslims names. There wasn’t any Christian name among them.‘” Read more.

UK: Pork Products And Saliva Leave British Muslims Fearing For Their Lives

05/29/2013 Leave a comment

Doctors all agree, mouth-watering bacon can kill you. Eventually. But you have to eat lots and lots and lots of it first …

1 Timothy 4:1, 3a, “The Spirit clearly says that in later times some will abandon the faith and follow deceiving spirits and things taught by demons… They forbid people to marry and order them to abstain from certain foods …”

Qur’an Sura 2:21, “Do not marry [non-Muslim] women, until they believe: A slave woman who believes is better than [a non-Muslim] woman… Nor marry your girls to [non-Muslim men] until they believe: A man slave who believes is better than an unbeliever … [Non-Muslims] beckon you to the Fire [of Hell] …”

Qur’an Sura 5:3, “Forbidden to you (for food) are: dead meat, blood, the flesh of swine, and that on which hath been invoked a name other than that of Allah.”

BY TIMOTHY WHITEMAN, Examiner – “In the wake of the brutal public slaying of British soldier Lee Rigby at the hands of two admitted Islamic Jihadists, Muslim residents of the British country of Wales have expressed fear for their lives after two separate incidents that reportedly involved pork products and saliva, as reported by Wales Online on May 26, 2013.

According to the Welsh news portal, young Muslims living in Wales report that they now ‘fear a backlash’ and that ‘a rising tide of hostility will engulf them’ after the beheading of Drummer Rigby last week on a London street in broad daylight.

According to the British charity Faith Matters, they have taken it upon themselves to investigate an alleged spitting upon of an unidentified Muslim resident of an unidentified town somewhere in the general location of the Welsh capital city of Cardiff.

There was no indication in Wales Online if the alleged spatting upon was ever reported to police as a clear cut case of assault.

According to their official website, Faith Matters cited purpose is their aim to ‘reduce extremism and interfaith and intra-faith tensions’ via diversity development workshops, interfaith dialogue and other such related projects.

No Eggs Or Toast…?

Also cited as a fear inducing threat, was the allegation of bacon was left outside of a local mosque the day after the Drummer Rigby’s killing.” Read more.

Minnesota: Two Joggers Attacked By Group Of Muslim Men In Broad Daylight

05/29/2013 6 comments

For peaceful purposes …

CBS Minnesota – “FRIDLEY, Minn. (WCCO) – In broad daylight, and within full view of a busy stretch of East River Road, a group of seven young men struck two joggers totally at random.

The joggers were out for a Sunday run near East River Road and 37th Avenue North when each one was suddenly and viciously punched by the group.

Lt. Mike Monsrud, of Fridley Police, says attacks like these are rare.

The victims said their attackers demanded no money and said few words before striking. The attacks, according to Monsrud, appear to be unprovoked.

The first attack occurred around 3:25 p.m. Sunday afternoon, followed by the second incident in the same general area about 20 minutes later. Police said one man suffered a bloody nose in the attack and the other has a sore throat.

‘Without talking to them (the attackers), we have no idea what motivated them. It does not appear to be robbery or any other means to a greater crime,’ Monsrud added…

Police say this is the first incident of this nature that’s been reported along the jogging path. Authorities said the suspects are described of a group of six to seven Somali men, but did not have any more information.” Read more.

Palestinians Reject Obama Adminstration’s ‘Groundbreaking’ $4 Billion Dollar Appeasement Plan

05/29/2013 1 comment

And the Palestinians claim it was rejected for “political” reasons. The Truth: The religion of Islam completely encompasses legal, political, economic and even military components that seek to replace all other non-Islamic values, laws, governments and economies. Given the fact that the principal Palestinian Authority’s own religious leader, the Mufti Muhammad Hussein, publicly called for the genocide of Jews as an Islamic goal and the fact that both the Palestinian Authority and Hamas have repeatedly stated that they will never recognize the state of Israel (because the Qur’an forbids friendship with Jews), the real reason for the rejection of the Obama Administration’s “groundbreaking” plan is more accurately described as “religious” in nature. While politics can change, the religion cannot …

Qur’an Sura 5:51, “O you who believe! do not take the Jews and the Christians for friends; they are friends of each other; and whoever amongst you takes them for a friend, then surely he is one of them …”

Hadith, Tabari 7:97, “The morning after the murder of Ashraf, the Prophet [Mohammed] declared, ‘Kill any Jew who falls under your power.’”

By AWR Hawkins, Breitbart – “The day after U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry set forth a $4 billion plan to boost the Palestinian economy in exchange for concessions on Israeli/Palestinian peace talks, Palestinian Authority (PA) economic adviser Mohammad Mustafa said: ‘The Palestinian leadership will not offer political concessions in exchange for economic benefits.’

According to The Times of Israel, Mustafa made it clear that the Palestinians’ priorities are political rather than economic. They refuse to curtail the ‘political framework’ they are pursuing in exchange for appeasement money from the Obama administration.

The investment plan laid out on May 26 would have been overseen by former British PM Tony Blair; according to Kerry, it could have ‘cut unemployment by almost two-thirds and [raised] average wages by 40%.’ He described the plan as ‘groundbreaking,’ saying it would ‘transform the fortunes of a future Palestinian state.'” Read more.

He cited the Hadith (Islamic tradition attributed to Muhammad) saying that ‘the Hour [of Resurrection] will not come until you fight the Jews. The Jew will hide behind stones or trees. Then the stones or trees will call: ‘Oh Muslim, servant of Allah, there is a Jew behind me, come and kill him.’” Read more.

The process started in 1937 and has repeated itself with minor variations many times over the subsequent 74 years. The process is as follows: Arabs go to war with Israel, promising Israel’s destruction and the annihilation of its Jews. Israel wins the war and offers peace. Arab leaders reject Israel’s peace offer, renew their promises of destruction and annihilation; and after a while they go to war again, and lose again, and Israel again offers peace. Repeat this process 31 times and you have the history of the Arab-Israel conflict in a nutshell. Unfortunately, this process never seems to make it to our mainstream media’s radar screen, nor into many of the classrooms of professors of Near Eastern Studies.” Read more.

Lawlessness: Saudi Writer Says Women Who Work Should Be Sexually Molested In The Workplace

Revelation 9:21, “And they did not repent of their murders … or their sexual immorality …”

By Abeer Allam and Michael Peel, Financial Times – “Abu Dhabi: A Saudi writer has urged his Twitter followers to sexually molest women hired to work as cashiers in big grocery stores, the latest backlash from conservatives who want to roll back limited social and economic reforms launched in Saudi Arabia.

Abdullah Mohammad Al Dawood, who writes self-help books including one called The Joy of Talking, has stirred fierce debate this week via the internet microblogging service with the use of the hashtag harass_female_cashiers, to press for Saudi women to be forced to stay at home to protect their chastity.

His campaign against official moves to encourage women to work in mixed gender environments has led some Twitter users to denounce him. Others however applauded him as a fighter against government efforts to westernise and corrupt the country.

More than half a million Saudi Arabian nationals, including unprecedented if still modest numbers of women, have surged into the country’s private sector since late 2011 under a government-driven programme aimed at turning the Gulf giant’s sclerotic non-oil economy into a regional powerhouse.” Source – Gulf News.

Iran Hauls Off Christian Pastor, Shuts Down One Of The Nation’s Largest Churches In New Anti-Christian Sweep

05/29/2013 1 comment

Revelation 2:10, “Do not fear any of those things which you are about to suffer … Be faithful until death, and I will give you the crown of life.”

Fox News – “Government agents shut down Iran’s largest Persian-language Pentecostal church Monday, just one week after one of its pastors was arrested and hauled away midway through a worship service.

The closing of Central Assemblies of God church in Tehran is the latest case of the Islamic Republic’s leadership cracking down on Christians ahead of the June 14 presidential election to replace President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. Leaders appear especially wary of groups deemed dangerous to their power base, including growing Christian churches, according to Iranian Christians and rights groups who spoke to BosNewsLife, a news agency that specializes in the plight of Christians in Middle Eastern nations.

‘These incidents appear to be an attempt to stop worship services from being conducted in Farsi, the language of the majority of Iranians,’ George Wood, general superintendent of the AoG in the U.S., told the service. ‘Services are allowed in Armenian, a minority language that most Iranians do not speak or even understand.’

On May 21, authorities grabbed Pastor Robert Asserian while services were under way. They have not told parishioners where he is being held.

‘Before going to the church, authorities raided Pastor Asserian’s home, where they confiscated a computer and several books,’ Wood said. ‘Then, they found Pastor Asserian at the church leading the prayer service, immediately arrested him and announced the church’s imminent closure.’

Christian groups fear a further erosion of what little tolerance of religious diversity has existed in Iran.” Read more.
