The developments this week indicate the Palestinian Authority is wanting to be granted statehood by the UN.  To me this process has been heading this way for a long time but really picked up steam last year when Israel stormed the flotilla that was headed to Gaza that had its origin in Turkey.  Fast forward to today and Turkey has all but broken diplomatic relations with Israel, Egypt and Jordan who have peace treaties with Israel and say they are still committed to the treaty but their public statements are tepid at best.  Turkey is on the front line leading these Arab nations into what I believe will be an eventual confrontation.

Turkey is considering sending naval warships to escort the next flotilla that is headed to Gaza in what would no doubt be a confrontation with the Israeli Navy.  The pace of this future confrontation is picking up steam and I believe will occur in the not to distant future.  If Egypt and Jordan decide the peace treaty is no longer in their best interest then Israel is once again surrounded on all sides by hostile countries.  For whatever reason Turkey is taking the lead on this and the only conclusion I can draw as they want Israel out-of-the-way because in their minds this will solve the Palestinian dilemma and the crisis and turmoil that always surround Israel and the Palestinians.

Maybe the Palestinians should have a state and a compromise worked out, but appears to me the elimination of the Jewish state is on the agenda which is in line with what Ahmadinejad of Iran wants.  And to those of you who the United States will stand by Israel at all costs, think again. As rapidly as the world changes and especially in the Middle East don’t be surprised in the United States tells Israel they are on their own.

I have updated information in regard to Iran and the believe of their leader Ahmadinejad that by causing a cataclysmic war this will hasten the return of the Mahdi and the New World Order!  Finally, I have located an article by the Washington Post, one of the leading media outlets in this nation that is speaking about this very issue.   I have reposted below where I talk about this almost a year ago and hopefully with a major media outlet bringing the issue on the Mahdi then people will start to take this serious.  Remember, these kind of leaders maybe crazy but are very dangerous and mean what they say.  I would like to believe that some kind of action, even if covert is being taken to undermine Ahmadinejad and his government. Below is my repost and a current link to the Washington Post.

http://www.washingtonpost.com/world/ahmadinejad-defends-aide-suffers-political-cost/2011/05/12/AFvn0j2G_story.html

If you closely follow Iranian leader Mahmoud Ahmadinejad then you are familiar with his believe in the final messiah returning which is the Mahdi that will usher in a New World Order.  The reason I say “follow closely” is that fact this belief of Ahmadinejad is not widely reported and must be deeply researched in order to find out any info on this subject.  I believe the media does not report on this because they probably think it is much ado about nothing and that surely someone is not that crazy to plunge the world into war over some kind of crazy believe.

Well, history is ripe with these scenario’s and the one mentioned above should not be looked at any differently.   Iran has shown their playbook and telegraphed exactly what they intend to do; acquire nuclear weapons, destroy Israel, and start and world war so the Mahdi will return.  I would like to think our leaders are smart enough to know that Ahmadinejad is a loon and that he plans on doing what he says and we as a nation and world just don’t stand by and attempt a piecemeal approach to accommodate Ahmadinejad.

There is also a lesson in this for the United States about getting involved in the affairs of other nations. This nation helped overthrow the elected government of Iran in the 1950’s and installed the Shah. When Iran was in an uproar in the 1970’s President Carter helped remove the Shah from power and the Ayatollah Khomeini took over and the Islamic Republic was born.  I know we have the hindsight of history but can anyone tell me why these leaders would think and “Islamic Republic” would be good for anyone.  I mean, I don’t think it is a good idea for religious leaders to lead a nation because they twist their belief system into thinking God has told them to do something and the result is people being killed and leaders like Ahmadinejad thinking he has to help the Mahdi to return. In an article I list below it is reported that Ahmadinejad takes hist entire cabinet to the city of Qom to report to the hidden Imam about what is going giving every indication that Iran is preparing for the end times.

I have listed several articles that speak on this subject in great detail as this is a serious threat and not the rumblings of some nut job.  It is not if, but when Ahmadinejad starts to implement his plans to have the Mahdi return we can only hope this nation and the rest of the world will quickly dispose of this problem so as to minimize the suffering that will surely follow.

As the war in Libya drags on into its sixth week the 60 day reporting to Congress under the war powers act expires today and the war continues. The Obama administration says this is “not a war” since there are not “boots on the ground”! Who are we kidding?  If this country is providing munitions, logistics etc.. people are fighting and dying on the ground then this is a war!

I have always believed the commander-in-chief has to make decisions on war and security issues, but we are involved in Libya were there is no vital interest to this county and the media is giving the President a pass on this war. Rest assured if this was a Republican it would be the top news story everyday!!

The liberals have to be going crazy because Obama has gotten this country involved in another war, we are still in Afghanistan, and Guantanamo Bay is still open!  I know we can’t understand all the reasons decisions are made, but the next time there is a conservative in office we all need to remember how the liberals and the media gave this President a pass on the unnecessary war in Libya.

President Obama made his speech last week that as a basis for negotiations for middle east peace that Israel should consider returning to its borders prior to the 1967 war.  From my research this appears to be a first for an American President and the first salvo in what I believe is the beginning of the end of unconditional support for Israel by the United States.  Israel has long said that if they return to these borders their country will be indefensible and this is why they need to hold onto the territory they have.  Also, this land was won in a war started by the Arab nations and they lost so why should this land be given back?

Israel has stated they have no intention of returning to the pre 1967 borders, but I believe they will receive pressure from the United States, EU, and UN to do so because the world is tired of the conflict and want it to be settled. Since the formation of the State of Israel they have been attacked by Arab armies many times and the Arabs defeated every time so what the Arabs could not achieve on the battlefield they will try to get at the negotiating table and looks like they might succeed. Now, with President Obama getting the pre 1967 borders out in the open it won’t be long before the EU and UN fall in line.

To me this is a very disturbing statement by President Obama but I believe it fits into the bigger picture of what is going on in the middle east.  The whole status quo has been changed with the “Arab Spring” that is taking place with autocratic governments being overthrown or others about to be. What a perfect time for the pre 1967 border speech and with the complete turnover of the middle east taking place what a perefect time to finally get this conflict settled once and for all.  But, I do not think it will happen this way because I still think the Arabs do not want the State of Israel to exist.  I think these government bodies I have mentioned will press Israel to accept the pre 1967 border to obtain peace and Israel will reject this.  In turn, as they have done in the past the Arabs will attack with whatever allies they can find.  The EU and United States will blame Israel and not come to their aid, leaving them alone to defend themselves against these invaders.

This is not hard to figure out, you only have to watch and pay attention so I believe the speech President Obama has just made will lead to a chain of events that will allow the enemies of this country and Israel to have the green light for the final push to eliminate Israel.

I have to say that when I read the article about the Navy Seals finding a large stash of pornography in Bin Laden’s so-called hide out almost laughed my you no what off!!  Let me say first that if he liked pornography that his is business and I don’t really care about that, but this is typical of “religious people”, “preachers” etc… that have the mentality of “do as I say and not as I do”!  Let me clarify that I am not talking about someone’s true faith in God that I myself have, but these people who try to tell other people how to live and they go ahead and do what ever they want and bin laden with his porn collection would be one of the worst offenders!!  If a regular every day “muslim” was found with a porn stash they would probably pull out his eyes or execute this person as violating the koran or something.

All the while Bin Laden is watching his porn he was making those stupid videos about how decadent the west was and taking over muslim lands! I bet you anything he was watching western porn and having orgies with his three wives and could somehow honestly talk some of these people into blowing themselves up to kill others!!  Little did these people know the person they believed was some kind of “religious icon” was keeping an extensive porn collection and all the while blaming the “decadent west” for corrupting muslims!

This is a perfect example why things and what people say should be questioned and not “blindly” follow what someone says because they make themselves out to be some kind of expert.  This is especially true with religious figures because they use heaven and hell to get people to do their bidding or give them all their money.  These people are told that if they do not do what the religious leader says they will go to hell!  How many people has bin laden convinced to blow themselves up and kill others and them thinking they will go heaven and get the 72 virgins!! It is really a sad state of affairs that people are naive enough to believe someone like bin laden.  Maybe this will wake up the decent muslims that want to work and raise a family. So the next time the radical comes to your door looking for recruits for a suicide mission tell him to take blow himself up and not to forget his pornography!

Syria is using heavy weapons against its citizens to crush the uprisings and killing civilians in the process. This was the excuse to attack Libya. So my question is “Why aren’t air and missile strikes ordered against Syria? Perfect opportunity to seperate Syria from Iran and make life more difficult for Hezbollah in Lebanon. So this is why I do not believe the attack on Libya was to “prevent civilian casualties”. If this was the case then the same philosophy should be used for Syria. I believe the Europeans want to get their hands on all that North African oil!

It is being reported that in the last few weeks Syrian security forces have shot and killed over 200people in the last 4 weeks.  Since the uprisings have occurred in North Africa the Syrian people have taken to the streets demanding that Syrian President Assad step down and allow democratic reform.  His response is to shoot people in the streets so sounds like to me NATO needs to start drawing up plans to conduct missile and air strikes to save the Syrian people from being massacred like the excuse we were all given for the Libyan operation.  However, even though protestors are being shot and killed there will be no intervention to save the Syrian protestors because they are on their own.

But think about this, what better opportunity to get rid of another antagonist in the middle east?  I say this only for the fact of the lame excuse for attacking Libya.  We could get rid of a lot of problems by toppling the Syrian regime.  For one Iran would lose a key ally on the northern front of Israel and a conduit for weapons to their patron in Lebanon which is Hezbollah.  A big obstacle to middle east peace could be removed and serious discussions on settling this matter once and for all.  But this will not happen!! The status quo will remain because to me no money or profit can be made by taking out Syria.  North Africa is sitting on huge oil reserves and this needs to be tapped and Qadhafi must go because he is holding up the progress of getting to these reserves.

I just get tired of being given excuses for attacking countries like Libya so we can “save their people”.  Really… so we can “save them”!! Who is going to save the people of this country (US) when gas is $5.00 a gallon, food prices keep rising and no jobs that pay enough for people to survive.  It is all smoke and mirrors when these things go on and I don’t believe a word of it!!

Periodically, I will make posts about this subject when I feel like there is new information that has been made available and this is one of those situations.  It is a well-known fact that Iranian President Ahmadinejad believes in the return of the “12 imam” who is a messianic figure in the islamic faith.  What makes this believe disturbing is that Ahmadinejad believes he must set in motion the events that will hasten the mahdi’s return which includes a destructive a cataclysmic world war.  Recently, I found an article that talks about at top advisor to Ahmadinejad has produced a movie about this very scenario and how Ahmadinejad has laid out his scenario how the “end times” will occur.

There is no need for me to go into great detail about the article as I have posted a link so it can be read and interpreted by the reader as to its content.  But make no mistake about this, Ahmadinejad believes this and we all should take very seriously what he is saying.  Don’t be fooled by the media because they are not reporting this in great detail because we are told Ahmadinejad is some kind of nut!! We were told in the 90’s that bin laden was some kind of nut and looked what happened!  These people are telegraphing exactly what they intend to do and will do everything in their power to bring it about.  Some how I believe the western nations believe Ahmadinejad is a nut case and are trying to stop him and here is why:

1)American forces are in Iraq and Afghanistan, the two countries that border Iran on the east and west.

2)Missile defense shield proposed for Europe so Iranian medium range nuclear missiles can be intercepted.

3)Israel has been provided with top of the line technology for missile defense.

Throughout history these same situations have arisen with some “crazed” leader bent on world domination but this time the stakes are higher because Ahmadinejad is after nuclear weapons and if he gets them then he may well attempt to manipulate events to hasten the return of the Mahdi as he believes.  Just remember, if this were a western leader talking about the return of Jesus and trying to manipulate events to get this to happen.  It would be in the news everyday about what a lunatic this leader was and every protestor from the US to Germany would be in the streets talking about how tolerant we need to be and not force religion down our throats.  What a joke all of this is in the name of tolerance!!

I have watched the war in Libya for the last few weeks with amazement and wonder why the west has decided to launch air and missile strikes in Libya and the reason is to protect the Libyan people and stop a humanitarian crisis.  Using other African nations as an example, why isn’t the west using air and missile strikes in the Ivory Coast where an election was held and the opposition won and the current President does not want to step down.  The possibility exists of a humanitarian crises so we must intervene and stop this?? What about Darfur??  There was a confirmed slaughter of the population but yet no air and missile strikes to help these people!!   I could go on and on, but these are just a few examples I site to show why for the air and missile strike on Libya is a shame!!

In no way am I defending Qadhafi but lets look at what has transpired.  We know he sponsored terrorism and played a part in the bombing of Pan Am flight 103 over Lockerbie Scotland.  This case was pursued for years and I believe the Libyan government paid compensation for this act which they should.  The west was worried that Libya was trying to produce nuclear weapons so a few years after the war in Iraq and Saddam Hussein captured the Bush Administration cut a deal with Qadhafi that he would be welcomed into the family of nations if he gave up his nuclear weapons and he did so.  In the last few years it looked like the West and Libya were getting along and then all of a sudden these revolutions start in North Africa and these governments begin to fall one right after another, but in Libya the government fought back.  The rebels were on the verge of defeat until the west intervened and I bet Qadhafi is regretting giving up his nuclear program because the west does not attack countries with nuclear capabilities!

All the while the liberals in this country attacked the Bush Administration for attacking Iraq and not finding weapons of mass destruction.  I ask this question of the liberals; Is there any evidence that civilians are or were being slaughtered? Libya does not have that many people, was there really going to be a humanitarian crisis?  My point is this, I believe there are powers behind the scenes that set in motion a chain of events that are controlled and manipulated and the revolutions in North Africa were set in motion by outside forces to change the entire structure of North African governments.  When Qadhafi did not go quietly and the rebels were on the verge of defeat then the west intervened because Libya must change and Qadhafi removed from power to help bring the muslim world in line with the New World Order as I believe these are the last group of people who have not bought into this scenario.

Obviously, this is just my opinion and have no concrete facts other than watching events unfold and by following them it is pretty easy to get a general idea of what is going instead of just paying attention to what the media is feeding us everyday.  Think for yourself and it is not to hard to figure out.

Last night I was watching Anderson Cooper and his whole show was about the “Crisis in Libya” and how Qadhafi was using his warplanes to bomb rebel position.  The program talked about how desperate the situation is for the rebels and something must be done to help them.  Anderson Cooper even talked by phone to someone who talked about how desperate their situation was and the Libyan was saying “we need your help” and Anderson Cooper says “we will get your story out” and would call this dude back.

I am not defending George Bush on Iraq as I have questions about that myself but Saddam Hussein far worse that Qadhafi and when he tried to do something about it he was pounded day in and day out by the media and the Democrats.  The liberal media and the democrats wanted out before the war was over and Senator Harry Reid even said “the war was lost”.  Now fast forward to today, there is another despot killing his own people with open civil war taking place and now all of a sudden this same liberal media is whining that something must be done to help these Libyan rebels when they said nothing about how Saddam Hussein used poison gas on his own people.

I say turn about is fair play so as far as Libya I do not want any American Intervention in the Libyan matter.   The media are reporting there needs to be a no fly zone over Libya so Qadhafi can’t use his warplanes.  I say we take the approach President Reagan did in the 1980’s when the Soviet Union invaded Afgahnistan. The United States armed the rebels, and in order for them to shoot down Soviet Aircraft we gave them stinger missiles and showed then how to use them.  I get sick of this media trying to steer the course of this nation based on who they support in office.  Rest assured if this was a Republican President thinking about no fly zones and air strikes in Libya the liberal media would be reporting “The Arab street is upset because the United States is about to get involved in another Middle Eastern country”.  We would be seeing Arabs in the street protesting and having their Day of Rage” because of this.

I have linked to an article below that talks about the U.S. secret plan to arm the rebels and I am ok with, but no American military personal need to be involved.  These people need to solve their own problems.
