‘Whopper Of A Fireball’: Large Meteor Explodes Over Arizona, ‘It Was Absolutely Enormous’

12/13/2013 1 comment

CNN – “A resounding boom over Tucson, Arizona, roused residents from their dinner tables Tuesday and had them pointing up to the sky.

With the largest meteor shower of the year around the corner, the heavens seemed to be giving them a sneak preview. A whopper of a fireball roared over their heads and exploded, rattling their houses.

A dash cam captured it on video as it vanished in a bright blaze.

The spectacular annual Geminid meteor shower kicks into high gear Thursday night, NASA said, and people around the world will be able to enjoy it.

Some of its meteors have already been dashing through Earth’s atmosphere. The agency recorded nine of them Tuesday night.

But the Tucson meteor did not appear to be one of them, said NASA meteor expert Bill Cooke, who analyzed the flying space rock after two NASA cameras in Arizona recorded it on video.

Traveling at 45,000 mph, it was too slow.

‘A Geminid moves at 78,000 mph,’ he said. And the direction it came from was not typical for a meteor from the big shower.

The Arizona fireball was just one of the handful of ‘sporadic background’ meteors that whiz through the atmosphere every day.

But this was a big one, Cooke confirmed. It weighed about 100 pounds and was about 16 inches thick. It made quite a bright flash, as it burned up in the atmosphere.

Even with 100 to 120 meteors per hour coming down during its peak on Friday and Saturday, the Geminid shower now has a tough act to follow.

Astronomer Tod Lauer heard the blast but did not bother to look outside.

‘We were eating dinner and heard a good bang that rattled the roof of our house. I dismissed it as a sonic boom,’ he posted to Facebook.

He realized it had to be more than that, when a local TV station phoned the scientist, who studies images from the Hubble Space Telescope, to ask him to explain what had happened.

Frantic eyewitnesses across the state called local news outlets to report what they saw.

The explosion shook Tony Kubrak’s house, too, he told CNN affiliate KGUN, which received a flood of calls and hundreds of posts to its Facebook page.

Kubrak went outside to check it out.

‘I see this tremendous, white, bright light in the western sky. And it was just … it was absolutely enormous, I couldn’t believe it.'” Read more.

Kansas: Convert To Islam Develops Sudden Urge To Blow Up Witchita Airport, Kill Non-Muslims

For peaceful purposes …

Hadith, Bukhari 2977, “I have been made victorious with terror” – The “Prophet” Of Islam, Mohammed

Qur’an Sura 33:21, “Indeed in Allah’s Messenger (Mohammad) you have an excellent example to follow for him who hopes in (meeting with) Allah and the Last Day …”

By Pete Williams, NBC News – “A 58-year-old airport worker was charged Friday with allegedly planning a suicide bombing at a passenger terminal at the Wichita Mid-Continent Airport in Kansas.

The suspect, Terry Lee Loewen, an avionics technician who lives in Wichita, was arrested earlier in the day as he attempted to use his security pass to drive a vehicle that he thought contained explosives onto the tarmac at the airport, law enforcement officials said at a news conference in Wichita. In fact, the car contained only dummy explosives.

U.S. Attorney Barry Grissom said Loewen spent months developing a plan to drive a carload of explosives to the airport terminal and that he was determined to trigger the bomb himself and die in the blast.

Loewen, who is white, became radicalized after reading extremist Islamic material on the Internet, Grissom said.

A criminal complaint filed in U.S. District Court in Wichita charges Loewen with one count of attempting to use a weapon of mass destruction, one count of attempting to damage property by means of an explosive and one count of attempting to provide material support to a designated foreign terrorist organization. He was scheduled to be arraigned at 3 p.m. local time.

If convicted on all counts, he faces a maximum penalty of life in prison.

Investigators tell NBC News that Loewen has been under scrutiny since August, when he began having an online exchange with someone he thought was a like-minded individual but who turned out to be an FBI employee.” Read more.

Arabs Control 99.75% Of Middle East Land, But Israel’s Control of 0.25% Is Too Much For Obama

12/13/2013 4 comments

Obama to Israel: If you like your security, you can keep it. Period …

Zechariah 12:2-3a, “Behold, I will make Jerusalem a cup of trembling unto all the people round about, when they shall be in the siege both against Judah [and] against Jerusalem. And in that day will I make Jerusalem a burdensome stone for all people: all that burden themselves with it shall be cut in pieces …”

By Dr. Tuvia Brodie, INN – “Once again, Israel’s Left tells us that Israel cannot survive if we refuse to surrender land. They say that Israel and ‘Palestine’ can live ‘side-by-side in peace and security’.

They are wrong.

Currently, Arabs control 99.75 per cent of land in the Middle East. Israel controls 2.5 tenths of one per cent of the Middle East.  Israel’s Left, the EU and the US believe that that is too much land for Jews.

There can be no peace, in their opinon, if Jews control that much land.

Therefore, sometime in 2014, Israel must give to the Arab both Judea-Samaria and parts of Jerusalem. That way, Arabs will control 99.87 per cent of the Middle East.

The West is serious about this. So is Israel’s Left. They both want Israel to sign a diplomatic ‘letter of intent’ to allow ‘peace’ to unfold in ‘stages’; at least, that’s the most likely scenario for current peace talks.

It’s a clever approach. It allows the West and Israel’s Left to declare that a deal has been done.

It won’t matter that all that’s been done is an agreement to agree. What will matter is, the West and Israel’s Left will have a piece of paper they can wave and say, ‘we have peace’.

Haven’t we beem there, done that?

The PA—our so-called peace partner—will also wave paper in the air. But it won’t be a peace agreement. It will be their new map–which shows ‘Palestine’ in place of Israel.

This moment, however, will be a beginning, not an end. For Arabs, the ‘end’ will come only when Israel has been destroyed and all Arab “refugees” return to Israel.

Their leader, Mahmoud Abbas, will wave his map in the air. He may not say the words, but his intent will be to declare some kind of final war against Israel.

The ‘Palestinian’ end-game (to replace Israel) will then begin.” Read more.

Flashback: Barack Obama Says Israel Must Pull Back to Pre-1967 Borders – “Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu bluntly told President Barack Obama on Friday his vision of how to achieve Middle East peace was unrealistic, exposing a deep divide that could doom any U.S. bid to revive peace talks. In an unusually sharp rebuke to Israel’s closest ally, Netanyahu insisted Israel would never pull back to its 1967 borders — which would mean big concessions of occupied land — that Obama had said should be the basis for negotiations on creating a Palestinian state.” Read more.

Flashback: Netanyahu associate: Obama detached from regional realities – “Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s associates expressed their disappointment with Barack Obama’s speech Thursday, with one aide saying that the US president is detached from regional realities… Referring to the US president’s Mideast policy speech, a Netanyahu associate said: ‘He (Obama) didn’t deliver the goods…Obama apparently does not understand the reality in the Mideast.’” Read more.
