This is worse than Katrina’s big angry brother. Please keep the Philippine people in your thoughts and prayers …

By Jethro Mullen, CNN – “Thousands of people in vulnerable areas of the Philippines are being relocated as one of the strongest tropical cyclones ever observed spins toward the country.

With sustained winds of 315 kph (195 mph) and gusts as strong as 380 kph (235 mph), Super Typhoon Haiyan was churning across the Western Pacific toward the central Philippines.

Its wind strength makes it equivalent to an exceptionally strong Category 5 hurricane.

The storm, known as Yolanda in the Philippines, is expected to still be a super typhoon, with winds in excess of 240 kph (149 mph), when it makes landfall Friday morning in the region of Eastern Visayas.

The storm is so large in diameter that clouds from it are affecting two-thirds of the country.

Philippines braces for super typhoon

Authorities in the region had moved more than 3,800 people to evacuation centers by late Thursday, Maj. Reynaldo Balido of the Philippine Office of Civil Defense said.

Most of those relocated live in Tacloban City, which sits on the coast of the island of Leyte and has a population of more than 200,000.

In a speech Thursday, President Benigno S. Aquino III warned residents of the ‘calamity our countrymen will face in these coming days.'” Read more.

Barack Hussein Obama tells the rebels that he’s got their back, even while they’re busy scarring everyone else’s …

Qur’an Sura 48:29, “Mohammed is [Allah’s] apostle. Those who follow him are ruthless to the unbelievers but merciful to one another.”

This man was shown 'mercy.' Limbs and head remain.

This man was shown ‘mercy.’ Limbs and head remain.

By Ted Thornhill, Mail Online – “In the Syrian town of Raqqa, Bashar al-Assad’s hated regime has been replaced by something many regard as being even worse – an al-Qaeda-linked group that is torturing people for writing graffiti and abolishing women’s rights.

Raqqa used to be one of the most liberal towns in Syria, but chillingly, the extremist Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) is using violence to impose their rule on the locals and stamp out the freedoms rebels fought for.

One man showed a TV news channel how he was left with horrific bruises and burns after jihadists beat him and tortured him with an electrical current for spraying graffiti.

This punishment for graffiti was also meted out by the Assad authorities ousted by the revolution, leaving many wondering what it’s all been for.

He told CNN: ‘Every 15 minutes, someone poured water on me, electrocuted me, kicked me, then walked out.’

He went on to describe the anguish he suffered listening to others being tortured.

He added: ‘When a person is tortured in front of you, you feel responsible. That’s the hardest. One guy still inside used to call me Dad as I taught him about democracy.’

Rebels who have voiced their opposition to ISIS have found themselves arrested and thrown in jail without trial.

The town’s women, meanwhile, have been ordered by ISIS via posters to ‘cover up their beauty’, according to CNN, and banned from seeing male doctors or even leaving home without a male relative.

One female activist drew comparisons between the once-liberal Raqqa and Taliban-ruled Afghanistan.” Read more.

Unsealed: A Closer Look At Revelation 6 And ‘The Four Horsemen Of The Apocalypse’ – “John describes the rider of the Black Horse in Revelation 6:5 as having ‘scales’ or ‘balances’ in his hands, employing the Greek word ‘zygos’ which is also used metaphorically to refer to any sort of ‘burden’ or ‘bondage’ as well as the imposition of ‘troublesome laws’. Not only is inequality rampant in the Islamic world where Muslim men are considered superior to women and all non-Muslims in general … a Muslim’s conduct must be based upon a strict set of Islamic laws, called the Sharia, and anyone failing to follow ‘Allah’s’ burdensome edicts must suffer draconian punishments, non-Musims included.” Read more.

Syria: Bodies Of Christian Family Discovered In A Well, Including 90-Year-Old Grandmother

The beasts of the earth forever thirst for Christian blood …

Qur’an Sura 58:20, “Those who resist Allah and His Messenger will be among those most humiliated.”

Zechariah 5:3a, 8a, ”… This is the curse [אָלָה – alah] that goes out over the face of the whole earth … This is Wickedness …”

By Joop Koopman, AINA – “Inhabitants of Sadad, near Homs, who fled the largely Syrian Orthodox town when rebels attacked last month, are now returning home to discover the scale of atrocities in what is being seen as the worst act of anti-Christian persecution since the war in Syria began.

The reports, sent by Church leaders to Catholic charity Aid to the Church in Need, describe how, in this ancient Christian town mentioned in the Bible (Ezekiel), vulnerable people unable to escape — including the elderly, disabled, women and children — were subjected to torture, such as strangulation. Church sources say 30 bodies were found in two separate mass graves.

Discovered dead in a well in Sadad were the remains of six members of one family including Matanios El Sheikh, 85, his wife, Habsah, 75, their daughter, Njala, 45, and grandsons Ranim, aged 18, a first-year university student, and his 16-year-old brother Fadi, in class XI at school.

Reports state they were thrown down a well on 26th October along with the boys’ paternal grandmother, 90-year-old Mariam. Their funerals, which took place yesterday (Monday Nov. 4), came as a community, whose town dates back to 2000BC, begins to grieve the loss of those being described as ‘martyrs’ by Church leaders.

The atrocities took place during a week-long occupation of Sadad by the Al-Nusra Front and Daash, rebel forces who, according to Church leaders, held 1,500 families as ‘human shields’ in a bid to stop Government troops retaking the village.

The tragedy in Sadad began Oct. 21 when rebel forces invaded the town and carried out what Syrian Orthodox Archbishop Selwanos Boutros Alnemeh, Syriac Orthodox Metropolitan of Homs and Hama, called the ‘most serious and biggest massacre of Christians’ since the conflict began in Syria in March 2011, the Fides news agency reported.

At least 2,500 families fled with no more than the clothes they were wearing to cities like Homs, 37 miles away, and further afield to Damascus, Al-Fhayle, Maskane, Fayrouza, Zzaydal and elsewhere.

Some who escaped travelled five miles by foot to find shelter.Those unable to flee Sadad were quickly rounded up by the rebels …” Read more.

Report: Saudi Arabia Orders Nuke From Pakistan, ‘They Already Paid For The Bomb’

The Harlot fears the Beast. While the Saudis seek weapons from a nuclear-capable ally due to the threat of Iranian terror, Iran has a nuclear-capable ally of its own

Isaiah 21:1-2, “An oracle concerning the Desert by the Sea: Like whirlwinds sweeping through the southland, an invader comes from the desert, from a land of terror. A dire vision has been shown to me: The traitor betrays, the looter takes loot. Elam, attack! Media, lay siege! I will bring to an end all the groaning she caused.”

BBC – “Saudi Arabia has invested in Pakistani nuclear weapons projects, and believes it could obtain atomic bombs at will, a variety of sources have told BBC Newsnight.

While the kingdom’s quest has often been set in the context of countering Iran’s atomic programme, it is now possible that the Saudis might be able to deploy such devices more quickly than the Islamic republic.

Earlier this year, a senior Nato decision maker told me that he had seen intelligence reporting that nuclear weapons made in Pakistan on behalf of Saudi Arabia are now sitting ready for delivery.

Last month Amos Yadlin, a former head of Israeli military intelligence, told a conference in Sweden that if Iran got the bomb, ‘the Saudis will not wait one month. They already paid for the bomb, they will go to Pakistan and bring what they need to bring.’

Since 2009, when King Abdullah of Saudi Arabia warned visiting US special envoy to the Middle East Dennis Ross that if Iran crossed the threshold, ‘we will get nuclear weapons’, the kingdom has sent the Americans numerous signals of its intentions.

Gary Samore, until March 2013 President Barack Obama’s counter-proliferation adviser, has told Newsnight:

‘I do think that the Saudis believe that they have some understanding with Pakistan that, in extremis, they would have claim to acquire nuclear weapons from Pakistan.'” Read more.

Flashback: Saudi Arabia To Acquire Nuclear Weapons To Counter Iran – “SAUDI Arabia could acquire nuclear warheads within weeks of Iran developing atomic weapons as the threat from Tehran triggers an arms race across the Middle East. In the event of a successful Iranian nuclear test, Riyadh would immediately launch a twin-track nuclear weapons program. Warheads would be purchased off the shelf from abroad, with work on a new ballistic missile platform getting under way to build an immediate deterrent …” Read more.

Flashback: Iran Calls Saudi Arabia The ‘Enemy Of Islam’ And Of ‘The Entire Human Civilization’ That Must Be Destroyed – “Earned from oil and the hajj, the House of Saud has been pumping billions of dollars into ‘educational’ institutions in the Western world. The mindset being created in those institutions is hateful and paranoid. The alumni of these Salafi-tainted institutions will never belong to the culture and milieu of their host countries. They will always look upon their adopted countries as enemy sites to be either reformed or destroyed. In order to make the world a peaceful place, the march of the House of Saud must be stopped… The Holy Prophet (PBUH) destroyed all the idols in the House of Allah. There is one more idol remaining.” Read more.

Stars Falling: Bright Lights In The Sky Reported Across Central And Southern California

By Robert J. Lopez, Los Angeles Times – “The flashes and bright lights that were reported across Central and Southern California on Wednesday night likely were long-lasting meteor streams known as the South Taurids, according to the National Weather Service.

The Taurids are known for having exceptionally bright meteors. On Wednesday night, people used Twitter to describe what resembled a meteor shower, bright lights or fireballs in the sky.

Mary Slosson said she driving eastbound on the 10 Freeway when saw a ‘flareup’ that ‘looked like something burning up upon entry into atmosphere’ over the Culver City area.

The flash of light caused drivers to hit their brakes and swerve to catch a glimpse, Slosson said.

Another person in Hollywood said he saw what appeared to be a ‘pretty substantial fireball in the sky.’

In northern San Diego County, a woman said she saw the ‘sky light up super bright.’

And in Fresno, a woman said she ‘saw something that looked like a huge shooting star falling.'” Source – Los Angeles Times.

Scientists: Wait Till Next Week, You Haven’t Seen Anything Yet – “Scientists predicted a meteor shower that occurs every year about this time. But they also say we haven’t seen anything yet. So-called Taurid meteor showers, which seem to come from the direction of the constellation Taurus, will reach their peak this year on Nov. 16 through the early morning of Nov. 17. Observers, aided by a full moon, will see 10 to 20 large fireballs every hour.” Read more.

Scientists: More Asteroid Strikes Upon The Earth Are Coming – “When an asteroid exploded over the Russian city of Chelyabinsk in February, shattering windows for miles and injuring well over 1,000 people, experts said it was a rare event — of a magnitude that might occur only once every 100 to 200 years, on average. But now a team of scientists is suggesting that the Earth is vulnerable to many more Chelyabinsk-size space rocks than was previously thought.” Read more.
