Glenn: This is the beginning of a very long war in the Middle East that we have no way to solve

With each passing day, the conflict between Israel and Hamas is resulting in more and more bloodshed and destruction. And the mainstream media continues to paint Israel as the enemy, with many stories focusing on the innocent civilians caught in the crossfire rather than the terrorists who are hiding out next to schools and mosques. But what is really happening the Middle East? Glenn explained on radio this morning.

Get Glenn Live! On TheBlaze TV

“I want to talk to you a little bit about what’s going on in Israel and what I think you really need to pay attention to, what the world needs to hear. But I want to start here first with our values and our principles, not our national interests, but…let’s just say this, our human values. When you see a bully on the street, when you see some guy picking on a little guy, it’s the story of Captain America. You immediately go for the little guy. It’s in our nature when we see a bully,” Glenn said.

“There’s a difference between World War II and Germany and now and people are saying, you know, the Gazans are causing all these problems. Yep. They voted. They voted for Hamas. Yep. Many of them have been raised. Yeah, however, you can’t make go to blanket statement just like we couldn’t make the blanket statement about Germany. You remember what happened? After World War II, once we stopped, we embraced the German people we helped feed them. Because it wasn’t the German people, it was the Nazi ideology,” he continued.

Back in World War 2, it was easy to recognize the Nazi’s as the bullies, not the German people as a whole. But things aren’t so clear today, and Israel’s enemies are working hard to make them look like bullies.

“Why is the Middle East, why is Turkey and everybody else supporting the Gazans…If it’s so wrong, why doesn’t everybody attack Israel? Because once the world gangs up on Israel, Israel wins. As long as Israel looks like the bully on these poor little people, the cause is advanced,” Glenn said.

“And believe me, you do have a reason to feel bad for the Gazans because the Gazans are being used. They are pawns,” he added. “Nobody is really listening to them. Hamas, they’re not listening to them. They’re indoctrinating them.”

“This is why we have to love the Palestinians and the Gazans. We have to see their plight, we have to hear it. And it has nothing to do with Israel. It has everything to do with their entire plight in the Middle East. Nobody is listening to them. Nobody,” he continued.

Glenn concluded:

So here’s what I want you to know about Israel and the Middle East, we are going to be sucked into this thing and there is no winner here. There is no winner here. Israel is strong enough if we do not condemn them. If we are very, very clear. My wife and I have helped build an underground hospital wing, Mercury One I think also helped build this hospital wing that takes in the Gazan children. Takes in the terrorists. You’re blown up in the street. Takes you there. They’re not torturing you. They don’t drag your body through the streets. They heal you.

So we have to continue to do that, Israel should be focusing on those things. We can’t lose our way. But this is why Massie I believe is now talking about this 9/11 report and saying these documents have got to be shown to the American people, because the case is going to be made that we need to get involved. Syria, Iran, Saudi Arabia, Egypt, they’re all involved.

This is the beginning of the caliphate and the reason why Israel is now under attack has nothing really to do with Israel. Even Israel is a pawn. This is a game for the caliphate. This is a game for who is going to control the Middle East. And so that’s why everybody is attacking Israel. That’s why — everybody’s eyes are on Israel. And both sides are ratcheting it up.

Because once you start this movement and you gather all this rage, it will morph. Mark my words: This is the beginning of a very long war in the Middle East that we have no way to solve. This is all about the caliphate. This is a — this is the beginning of a civil war in the Middle East that has very little to do with Israel, other than they’re the easiest red meat to hold up in the window.

    OK. It is not our job to solve it. This whole thinking that it is our job to solve the problems of the world not only undermine’s God’s sovereignty; but it flies in the face of common sense and the founders.

    What should be our policy…..

      Two conflicting things at once in Glenn’s head. First is his worship of his version of Jew/Israel and second, his Mormon faith that the Constitution or declaration of independence is almost scriptural. I see America as special only as long as we are guided by it’s precepts. And even though America was raised up by God for his purpose, so is every other nation for good or bad. God’s plan will be done and we are just called to be faithful and let the results belong to God. But control freaks cannot leave things out of their control.
      But. God’s will be done.

      • jim

        Are you a Dispensationalist ?

        • landofaahs

          It depends on how you mean it and in what context. Give me an example please.

          • jim

            Are you pre-trib, mid-trib or post-trib?
            Btw figures of the Christian faith, such as Athanasius, Augustine, Luther, Calvin, Wesley, wrote absolutely nothing on the “rapture” nor the “seven year tribulation.” Such ideas were foreign to them. Dispensational eschatology, with its elaborate prophecy charts and theories on the “mark of the Beast,” appeared on the scene as recently as 1830. Yet it did not become a prevailing view until the beginning of the 20th century.

            Evangelical Christians believe that the prophet Daniel, an official in the courts of Near-Eastern emperors in the sixth century BC, foretold the future of the world from his own time to the end of the age. Actually, the book was written in Palestine in the mid-second century BC by an author who expected God to set up his everlasting kingdom in his own near future,
            Many critical scholars attribute the obvious historical errors of the book of Daniel to naïveté. I find it more likely that the author generally knew what he was doing and wrote honest anachronistic inspirational fiction, the literary equivalent of the faith-promoting Left Behind series of our own time.

          • landofaahs

            When the “trib” gets here I will let you know. I do believe the world will go through a great tribulation, I believe the book of Daniel is God’s word and is historic and prophetic. Your claim of Daniel’s writing is your mere opinion since you were not there at the time. It’s your “belief” just as it is my belief that Daniel was actually God’s word. It is all Holy Spirit breathed and I don’t care about your claims to the contrary. I never read the left behind series and could care less about them. I am perfectly willing to wait on God and his timing. How it all plays out is his business, I just trust and believe in him.

          • jim

            Believe what you like -but whenever critical scholars point out that Daniel’s purported predictions were written after the fact, Christian believers routinely retort that they are merely showing a philosophical prejudice against the possibility of supernatural prophecy.

            Actually, it is not a question of philosophical presuppositions, but a question of hard evidence and inference to the best explanation. Daniel’s “predictions” of events up to the desecration of the Temple in 167 BC and the beginning of the Maccabean revolt substantially came true–yet its predictions of a new invasion of Egypt by Antiochus and the Resurrection of the Dead soon thereafter totally failed.

            The author correctly “predicted” the rise of Alexander the Great, and the history of the Seleucid and Ptolemaic kings, but he fared far worse in his predictions that God would supernaturally slay Antiochus Epiphanes, raise the dead, and inaugurate the messianic age in 163 BC.

            The most likely explanation of this strange pattern is that these prophecies were first composed just before the time they started to fail by an author who had no genuine talent for predicting the future.

          • landofaahs

            What is your proof? PHYSICAL proof? As far as your condemnation of failed prophecy, Daniel is in my opinion a prophecy that points to the Christ and his eventual return for judgment. There can of course be midway events predicted. Everything in between those times can be step by step and distant by centuries. Only God knows. Now we see through a mirror darkly but then we shall see clearly. As far as your alexander the great prophecy and any failures proves you don’t realize that the geographical and political regions you speak of can be revivals of old empires and their belief systems. These can pass into centuries, But I don’t predict the future, God does that not me or you. Jesus tells us to be ready at any time for the return of the Master. I am doing so.

          • jim

            Admittedly, each individual error can be demonstrated only with probability rather than certainty, and the believers always have their excuses at the ready. However, the weight of the evidence is cumulative, just as it is in a court of law.

            To cite a parallel example, the Book of Mormon prophets, who purportedly flourished between 600 BC and 400 AD, supposedly gave explicit predictions about Jesus Christ’s career in first-century Palestine (Helaman 14 et passim), Christopher Columbus’ discovery of America (1 Nephi 13:10-12), the Revolutionary War (1 Nephi 13:15-19), and Joseph Smith’s prophetic career in nineteenth-century America (2 Nephi 3). However, the book is totally silent about events after 1830, the year the book was first printed. The most likely explanation is that the book was Smith’s own composition, and a heavy burden of proof lies on Mormon apologists to prove otherwise. And the exact same reasoning applies to the prophecies of Daniel.

          • landofaahs

            I’m not Mormon and do not believe in the Mormons books or prophets outside those of the Bible (King James version) or it’s similar version.

          • landofaahs

            Who are these “particular scholars”? What is their personal religious views? What are your personal religious views? Another point that seems to escape you is that prophecy can cover multiple predictions concerning different time periods ie a lesser earlier prophecy that has an even greater prophecy later. It is only after the prophecies are completed when they are totally fulfilled and even understood. The prediction of Jesus’ suffering and death in Isaiah for instance was not understood before it’s completion. Prophecy was being completed and lived out in Jesus time and yet learned scholars scoffed at it as lies. Such were the Pharisees but now we see the beauty of the completion of the prophecies and with 20-20 hindsight we say, how could it not be clear and make sense to anyone reading it. People through out time have claimed certain prophecies being fulfilled in their time but were wrong. But don’t worry, all of the prophecies in the book of Daniel have not been played out yet, but they will. Even if you don’t think so because they are God’s word and his word carries more weight for me than any scholars with axes to grind to fit their views.

          • jim

            if there were only a half dozen errors in the entire Bible, then the fundamentalist excuses for these errors might be tolerable, since strange and unlikely things do happen once in a blue moon.

            However, with hundreds if not thousands of errors to dispose of, the credibility of the damage-control explanations offered by the apologists wears mighty thin.

            Fundamentalists who struggle to explain away the errors in the Bible frequently attack the errors of the holy books of other religions as eagerly as any freethinker, and I see no reason to treat the Book of Daniel any differently.

          • landofaahs

            You just call them errors and idiots like you will never learn. But if you could give only one and be proven wrong you would never stop coming up with what you see as contradictions because you look at them but not the way God does.

          • jim

            One example out of many-
            According to Daniel- the Roman Empire was to be the last world empire before Jesus’ second coming,
            In real history, however, the Islamic and Ottoman Empires falsified Daniel’s prophecy because they succeeded Rome and likewise occupied Judah and Jerusalem. In fact, they were much larger and lasted far longer than the Babylonian Empire of Daniel’s prophecy.

          • landofaahs

            Your book of Daniel must be different than mine. I don’t recall the Roman Empire mentioned. What chapter and verse are you speaking of? Jesus second coming? Where is that? Jesus was and is the word who was here and through him(the word) the world was created. When Jesus came and was crucified and buried and raised from the dead he did not allow the women to touch him because he said he had not yet ascended to his Father. Afterwards He instructed doubting Thomas to touch and see his wounds. Jesus is God as the Father is and as the Holy Spirit is. He sent the Holy Spirit after his going to the Father. So God is with us Christians even now. America may be the Roman Empire revived as according to Revelation but no one knows for sure yet. Prophecy cannot be certain until it has been completed. The book of Daniel’s prophecies are not yet complete.

    Here comes Landofaahs or whatever the heck his name is saying “Kill the children, kill the women, burn and kill all Palestinians for the Lord was in my anus last night dictating to me the TRUTH and the GOSPEL”

    • landofaahs

      I don’t really have to you moron. Muslims strap bombs onto their own children and blow their own children up themselves. But they take great pride in thinking their false God will bless them for committing suicide. They blow up so fast don’t they? )

      • jim

        A toxic mix of racism and exceptionalism has led to the existence of a state that since its formation has viewed its repeated violations of international law and its crimes against humanity entirely justified. So deeply ingrained is the biblical and historical justification for Israel’s continued depredations against the Palestinians that when it comes to international condemnation of its crimes, rather than a cause for reflection and introspection within Israeli society, for many it merely serves to reaffirm Israel’s view of itself as the last bastion of defense of the Jewish people in a hostile world.

        The day-to-day reality of this corrosive outlook involves young Israeli soldiers, mostly conscripts, humiliating, intimidating and brutalizing civilians at checkpoints, or killing Palestinians and Arabs in general in the knowledge they are able to do so with relative impunity.
        Given the lack of intervention on the part of the international community whenever an Israeli security crackdown occurs, it is evident by now that a tacit acceptance has taken root to the effect that massacring Palestinians has been elevated to the level of bloodsport within Israeli society.To be an enabler to it is immorral

        • landofaahs

          What BS. And obviously overt mindless hatred.

          • jim

            Lol-Says the dude that supports killing children and collective punishment-wow your words really carry some weight (not)

          • landofaahs

            Self defense and justice, Why is that funny to you? Wait til that little child is approaching you and others when people have strapped a bomb to him and sent him into a crowd to blow them up. When you confront that choice then you tell me whether or not you will take the child down in order to save numerous lives. Do you still think it’s funny?

          • jim

            The cowardly Israeli sniper that bragged about killing 13 kids from afar had no such fears !
            Do you support that also ?

          • landofaahs

            I’m talking of a different incident you moron. And by the way a sniper in wait is not my idea of fighting a war. But if he were around and saw a bomb strapped bunch of kids ready to blow themselves up and killing others, then he is justified in taking them out before they can carry out their villainy.

          • jim

            But this one was picking of civilians kids in Gaza -not because they where anywhere near any Israeli,s so as to be a threat- he was motivated purely by hate
            (as the nature of his tweet attests to)
            If the facts show that to be indeed the case -would you still support this soldiers act of murdering 13 children from afar with impunity ?

          • landofaahs

            Then take him to court and sue him. Like a good liberal would do.

          • jim

            Weasel words and side stepping the question seems to be par for the course for apologists of collective punishment!

          • landofaahs

            You are sidestepping issues. Are you muslim? What are your religious beliefs and what is your nationality? Are you a liberal professor from America that just hates the state of Israel or do you hate America too?

          • jim

            Side stepping the issue sort of infers that you do condone this sort of brutal behavior solely on the basis of creed and ethnicity

          • landofaahs

            I believe nations have the right to use deadly force to protect their borders and their people. Nobody has been more brutal than muslims though.

          • jim

            Still trying to sidestep the issue of whether you condone this Israeli snipers actions in killing 13 children or not-I see!

          • jim

            Hmmm strange that my comments keep disappearing every time I try and post a reply to the snide and flippant remark posted above
            You know the one -the one about taking to court and suing that guy that bragged about murdering 13 kids with a high powered snipers rifle!
            If that was possible -then wouldn’t the Israeli govt be just as liable too!
            Btw cant help but notice-that your still side stepping answering whether you support that snipers actions or not ?

            And he must answer to God. So what’s your point? I can count atrocities more numerous than that committed by muslims and palestinian muslims to be more exact. But I suppose when muslime straps bombs to themselves and blow up other people, you call that an act of love too huh?

          • jim

            Who,is excusing suicide bombers ?-not me !
            I am merely pointing out that your dispensationalist worldview as regards Israel- is such that you are willing to condone the most immoral acts and just about any and all atrocity’s carried out by Zionist forces(which ironically have a mainly atheist dominated leadership)in furtherance of there cause of a “greater Israel- under the dispensationalist world view it appears -all and any atrocity is sanctioned under the cloak of religion and prophecy !

          • landofaahs

            I did not say I was a dispensationalist. But it depends on how you mean it and what you apply it to. I believe that not one jot or tittle shall be taken from the law but Jesus fulfilled the law completely and so you are either under grace through Christ or the law without Christ. No man is exempt from the law but Believers in Christ are forgiven because Christ paid the price with his perfect sacrifice. God is continually creating.

          • landofaahs

            Your are no doubt a Palestinian sympathizer because you hate the idea that Israel exists as a country. It is because of of immoral acts of genocide in Germany that gave birth to Israel. If you want to place blame for Israel’s existence then either blame God or the Nazi’s who created the acts of atrocities that led the conscience of man to allow them a sliver of land that has been proven to have been their home in the past as a much as 1000 years BC. But prophecy of end times will be revealed when it is upon us even at the door but no man not even Christ would know the time. So much for your accusations.

            we must fear that if we accept this gift from Britain, we will be considered like the Jews who brazenly ascended the mountain to conquer Eretz Yisroel against the will of Hashem (Bamidbar 14:44).

            Therefore, Agudath Israel, in keeping with its goal of resolving every question in accordance with the Torah, must say no to this gift. And in the event that another Jewish party does accept it, they must beg the British government to ensure freedom of religion in the new state. In any case, we must proclaim to the world leaders that although we long to see our scattered people gathered to Zion and Jerusalem, we are waiting for moshiach to do the job.

            You would try to tar any body that speaks out against the brutality of the atheist Zionists as siding with evil-to that I say BS

            There are many Jews opposed to Zionism
            http://www.nkusa.org/aboutus/zionism/opposition.cfm
            WHY ORTHODOX JEWS ARE OPPOSED TO A ZIONIST STATE

            The People of Israel oppose the so-called “State of Israel” for four reasons:

            FIRST — The so-called “State of Israel” is diametrically opposed and completely contradictory to the true essence and foundation of the People of Israel, as is explained above. The only time that the People of Israel were permitted to have a state was two thousand years ago when the glory of the creator was upon us, and likewise in the future when the glory of the creator will once more be revealed, and the whole world will serve Him, then He Himself (without any human effort or force of arms) will grant us a kingdom founded on Divine Service. However, a worldly state, like those possessed by other peoples, is contradictory to the true essence of the People of Israel. Whoever calls this the salvation of Israel shows that he denies the essence of the People of Israel, and substitutes another nature, a worldly materialistic nature, and therefore sets before them, a worldly materialistic “salvation,” and the means of achieving this “salvation” is also worldly and materialistic i.e. to organize a land and army. However, the true salvation of the People of Israel is to draw close to the Creator. This is not done by organization and force of arms. Rather it is done by occupation to Torah and good deeds.

            SECOND — Because of all of this and other reasons the Torah forbids us to end the exile and establish a state and army until the Holy One, blessed He, in His Glory and Essence will redeem us. This is forbidden even if the state is conducted according to the law of the Torah because arising from the exile itself is forbidden, and we are required to remain under the rule of the nations of the world, as is explained in the book VAYOEL MOSHE. If we transgress this injunction, He will bring upon us (may we be spared) terrible punishment.

            THIRD — Aside from arising from exile, all the deeds of the Zionists are diametrically opposed to the Faith and the Torah. Because the foundation of the Faith and Torah of Israel is that the Torah was revealed from heaven, and there is reward for those who obey it and punishment for those who transgress it. The entire People of Israel is required to obey the Torah, and whoever doesn’t want to, ceases to be part of the congregation of Israel.

            FOURTH — Aside from the fact that they themselves do not obey the Torah they do everything they can to prevent anyone they get under their power from fulfilling the commands of the Torah, the claims to freedom of religion are lies. They fight with all of their strength to destroy the Faith of Israel.

            The Zionists claim that they are the saviors of Israel, but this is refuted by twelve things:

            FIRST — If one contemplates the two thousand years of our exile, take any hundred years even the hardest, one will not find as much suffering, bloodshed, and catastrophes for the People of Israel in the period of the Zionists, and it is known that most of the suffering of this century was caused by the Zionists, as our Rabbis warned us would be the case.

          • landofaahs

            “Atheist Zionists”. Are you trying to say all Zionists are atheists or are you saying that Zionists who are atheists are brutal? The Glory of God has already been revealed through his Son Jesus Christ and so by your definition if Jews accepted Jesus as their Savior, then they would be allowed to have the State of Israel. Well, I do pray that more Jews would come to the soul saving knowledge of Jesus Christ. So I pray for that to happen. But the fact that the state of Israel now exists, God must have a hand in it and bringing it to being for a reason. You seem to be blaming the Holocaust on the Zionist’s. The Nazi’s were responsible for it all by themselves. There is nothing wrong with prospering materially as even Abraham, Isaac and Jacob did. There is no inherent evil in being wealthy just as there is no inherent virtue in being poor. Jealousy and hatred of prosperous Jews led to the Nazi’s killing of the Jews, not Zionism.

        My great grandpa fought with Gen Lee for 3 years in the war of Northern aggression. I’m now married to a Pennsylvania Yankee.
        Neither I nor my wife remember the war, and even great grandpa said years later that, in hindsight, he wouldn’t have joined in the fray.
        But then Christian human beings are somehow able to put the past behind them and look forward to a brighter future, forgiving and asking to be forgiven for past sins.
        As a Baptist, I study the old and new testaments. That doesn’t mean that I practice or condone the ancient practice of stoning unruly kids or prostitutes. Nor do I want to see anyone, no matter how horrific his crimes, hung on a cross for days to die.
        Until these Muslim extremists gain a sense of humanity that outweighs their hatred of innocents who just happen to disagree with them, there will be no negotiating with them – either they die by the sword or we do.
        And they don’t care how many innocent Muslims must die in the process, so we must accept those deaths as an inevitable part of war or we must all convert to Islam.
        But it doesn’t stop there. These extremists demand that you and I convert to their version of Islam, or be killed. It’s like the Methodists, Baptists, and Lutherans all bent on exterminating the others, after they’ve all joined in killing all the Catholics.
        So there are 3 choices:
        1- the whole world converts to their version of Islam
        2- Most of us convert, and they kill all who remain
        3- We kill all of them
        So what can Israel, or the rest of the world, do to resolve this situation? Chamberlain tried appeasement with Hitler. The world is now trying appeasement with Hamas, Iran, and Hezbollah. What’s the definition of insanity?
        Why do the UN, international media, and governments around the world, give these mass murderers a minute of thought, let alone ignoring their atrocities while eagerly vilifying Israel for defending themselves?

          Since you already know the end of the story…h e l l will not stand against the Church. So, I guess they won’t get us all neither convert us all! This is why prayer is so vital for the struggle against this evil called islam.

          Prayer opens up avenues for our Lord to come in and redeem. Prayer is like naval gunfire support opening up the beach for our troops to come ashore.

          Prayer is our Christian first resource, not a last resort. It’s an offensive weapon when applied to the problem!

          So, we go out and give ‘em Heaven since they already have
          h e l l.

          Everywhere I look I see them here in America, they will soon be demanding we convert to Islam or die… Time to wake up America! Jesus is the only way we will live out eternity… because in my opinion this age is over! If you do not believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God (the One True God), then I DARE you to ask Him….Go ahead and just ask Jesus if He is really who He said He is! I did and He proved it to me! So I dare you to ask Him (or perhaps not) It is an eternal choice and thank God for giving us free will to make these important choices!

        Perfectly put! Also pray healing for Ishmael’s heart from the rejection of his father. I believe that single root of rejection is the basis for this entire conflict.

But they don’t know He’s their Father and would gladly reunite with them if they’d just believe His Son.

        The original purpose of the Book of Daniel was to comfort and encourage persecuted Jews during the Maccabean revolt. It all began in December of 167 BC, when the Seleucid emperor Antiochus Epiphanes desecrated the Temple in Jerusalem with an idol bearing his likeness.

        During the revolt, pious Jews began to circulate an anthology of stories allegedly written four hundred years earlier by a Jewish hero named Daniel. These stories relate how Daniel and his friends, while serving as officials in the courts of pagan kings, risked their lives to avoid breaking Jewish food laws or worshipping false gods.

        When the mightiest kings on Earth tried to force them to compromise their religious principles, they passively waited on God’s miraculous intervention to save them. The success of Daniel’s prophecies of events up to and including the atrocities of Antiochus supposedly demonstrated that God would miraculously intervene on schedule to rescue the Jews from Antiochus as well.

        The Book of Daniel predicted that God would miraculously destroy Antiochus Epiphanes, resurrect the righteous dead, and set up an everlasting, worldwide Israelite Empire three and a half years after the desecration of the Temple; in other words, the Messianic Empire should have begun in June of 163 BC. Since these predictions largely came true until the middle of the war and failed thereafter, we know that the author lived in Seleucid times, not Babylonian times.

        • Nissim Ozkaragoz

          I dont think this is true. The book of Daniel was written because of its importance due to its prophecies which are important to the jews and that why the jewish schollars put it inside the bible.It has nothing to do with the Maccabians. There were many prophecies and many prophets in israel but only prophecies that talked about the future of israel(what we need to know) were written inside the bible. The Talmud says that in the judges era there were 1,200,000 prophets in Israel.
          but like i said only prophecies that were needed for our future time were written in the bible.

          • jim

            Many critical scholars attribute the obvious historical errors of the book of Daniel to naïveté.It is more likely that the author generally knew what he was doing and wrote honest anachronistic inspirational fiction,
            .
            His friends and contemporaries already expected God to set up the messianic kingdom very soon in their own lifetimes, and his cycle of short stories regarding Daniel merely gave literary expression to their preexisting beliefs.

            It makes little difference however, whether the writer who assembled these components into their final form as the book of Daniel was their author or merely their editor. Either way, he crafted his inspirational fiction to inspire and comfort his fellow Jews who were loyal to their religious faith in the face of persecution.

            The divergent interpretations of history in the different chapters of Daniel make better sense under the theory that it is honest fiction !

          • Nissim Ozkaragoz

            What fiction?? What is fiction in Daniel??

          • jim

            Yes fiction -much like Harry Potter

            Daniel was written in the 2nd century BCE by a person who was unaware of the “real” chronology of the Kings of Persia. He didn’t know their order of succession, how many there were, or how long each reigned.

            The author of Daniel is aware of Antiochus IV’s intent to wage war on Egypt and conquer it and his abandonment of this enterprise due to intervention by the Romans (The Romans being identified with the “kittim ships” of Dan 11:30). This war begins circa 171 BCE, but by 168 BCE he is forced to retire from Egypt by the Romans.

            Because the author of Daniel is UNAWARE that Antiochus did NOT attempt another conquest of Egypt out of fear of the Romans, the text has to have been written some time _after_ the Romans had intervened to prevent the fall of Alexandria (the Ptolemaic capital) to the Syrian king.

            The kittim ships prophecy is the last accurate prophecy. Everything else which follows is contradicted by events preserved in Greek and Roman histories of the era. Daniel was probably written some time shortly after 168 BC (after the Roman intervention) and before Antiochus IV’s death in Mesopotamia circa 164/163 BC.

    • ThorsteinVeblen2012

      George C. Marshall opposed a Jewish state in the Middle East and accused Harry Truman of recognizing Israel just to get the Jewish vote in the 1948 election. Marshall thought it was against America’s interests.

      Marshall favored a secular democracy where everyone would have an equal vote. He said imposing a Jewish state in an Arab land would light a fire we don’t have the means to extinguish.

      Even Truman in his private writings resented the pressure he was put under by Zionist interests. The modern revision of Truman has taken him from being a champion of the Jewish state to an antiSemite.

      Israel was conceived not in America’s interests but by a small group of Zionist who put the establishment of a Jewish state in Palestine above the lives of European Jews. They even negotiated with the Nazis.

      Israel was imposed on the people of that land. They have every right to reject that imposition. Rather than demand the Palestinians accept the theft of their land the Zionists should be negotiating the terms they can all live together. Like the plan Marshall had envisioned.

      • Chris

        Hamas’ charter demands the destruction of Israel. Where’s the room for negotiating and getting along.

        • jim

          I hardly think so -In Israeli society – Palestinians, having been designated as without humanity, can be deprived of their residual dogged hold on their existence, deprived of their property and murdered at will. The current mass murder of Gazans is merely par for the course. It has become a spectator sport. Sadism against the non-people is a rite of passage in Israel

      • tammy

        Actually, after WW2 the Brittish took over the Ottoman Empire. They took the huge area and cut it in half and gave the half they called Jordan to the Muslims and Israel to the Jews since they were the majority in that part of the land. The Jews have lived there for centuries, even tho many had been captured and turned into slaves and taken to other countries, the Jews remained the majority in Israel. The Muslims immediately threw out all Jews from their land, Jordan. The Israeli’s let any Muslim who wanted to stay, they stayed. The “Palestinians”, which Arafat gave them that name, to make them sound legit, were a nomadic people, much like gypsies. The Muslims say they are liars, thieves and an unclean people. That is why Jordan and Egypt kicked them out of their countries. The lands they are on, is Israel’s land. Israel traded land for peace, but the Muslims have never kept their promises. The Muslims keep attacking Israel, ask any of their leaders and they will tell you, we will not stop until every Jew in the world is dead. Israel needs to decimate Hamas, then throw the rest of the Muslims off their property. Let them go back to Jordan and Egypt, were they originally came from. Jordan is for Muslims and Israel, with the original boundaries, belongs to the Jews. BTW once they destroy the little Satan, they are coming for the big Satan…us

        • ThorsteinVeblen2012

          Jews were not the majority in the land even Jews called Palestine. There population was significantly less than the Christian population which was about 20%

          Ironically the Jerusalem Post was originally called the Palestine Post.

          Of this minority the dominant language was Ladino which originated in Spain. There was a significant number of Palestinian Jews who were forced out of Spain in 1492 and were given refuge throughout the Muslim world.

          There is still a significant Christian population in Palestine of about five percent who are being bombed along with the rest of the people.

          Speaking of invented people the Zionist leaders could not decide on what to name their invented state or what language to adopt as Hebrew was a dead language like Latin and many wanted to speak Yiddish.

          • Bill Tilghman

            Many still do speak Yiddish – including here in America. So what is your point? No matter what your personal opinion is on the matter, these people have a right to exist and to do as they please in their own land. They won the land by conquest, that was made necessary by the continued persecution of the Jews by Arabs and others. They have beaten the enemies of Israel every single time they have been attacked, so they deserve to be where they are. They have earned it. Your problem is you lack the intellect to comprehend that. They are the power in the region that they are because the arabs in the region have made them that way by virtue of the many times they have tried to eliminate the Jewish state and its people.

            Perhaps one day they will have beaten the arabs enough times to make them want peace. At some point they will have to become tolerant of the Jews, and accept them as neighbors. Firing rockets at them isn’t the way to go about that.

        • jim

          Get your facts straight -There was no Jewish majority in British mandate Palestine !
          http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Demographics_of_Palestine#British_control_1918.E2.80.931948
          In 1920, the British and the League of Nations’ Interim Report on the Civil Administration of Palestine stated that there were hardly 700,000 people living in Palestine:
          And The Jewish element of the population numbered only 76,000 around 10% of the population.
          Four-fifths of the whole population some 550-600,000 where Arabs.Some 77,000 of the population were Christian Arabs, in large majority belonging to the Orthodox Church, and speaking Arabic. The minority were members of the Latin or of the Uniate Greek Catholic Church, and—a small number—were Protestants.
          By 1948, the population had risen to 1,900,000, of whom 68% were Arabs, and 32% were Jews
          facts are facts

          • Nissim Ozkaragoz

            You sir are suffering from cognitive dissonance at best -or a liar at worst!

            By 1948 the Jewish population was only 32%
            Dont believe me !

            you cant ignore the fact that in 1948 there were 660,000 jews in Israel. i dont know about your graphs

          • jim

            Never the less the 1948 figure of a 660,000 Jewish population-still only made up 32% of the total population of Palestine!
            The Jews were a minority no matter how one looks at it!

            This overall assessment is from several British reports
            These included the Hope Simpson report (1930), the Passfield White Paper (1930)the Peel Commission report (1937) and the Survey of Palestine (1945).

            Yehoshua Porath believes that the notion of “large-scale immigration of Arabs from the neighboring countries” is a myth “proposed by Zionist writers”. He writes:

            Until the 1850s there was no “natural” increase of the population, but this began to change when modern medical treatment was introduced and modern hospitals were established, both by the Ottoman authorities and by the foreign Christian missionaries. The number of births remained steady but infant mortality decreased. This was the main reason for Arab population growth. …

            No one would doubt that some migrant workers came to Palestine from Syria and Trans-Jordan and remained there. But one has to add to this that there were migrations in the opposite direction as well.

            For example, a tradition developed in Hebron to go to study and work in Cairo, with the result that a permanent community of Hebronites had been living in Cairo since the fifteenth century. Trans-Jordan exported unskilled casual labor to Palestine; but before 1948 its civil service attracted a good many educated Palestinian Arabs who did not find work in Palestine itself. Demographically speaking, however, neither movement of population was significant in comparison to the decisive factor of natural increase

          There was already a homeland for Jews established without the need to squat someone else,s land(A majority Arab People were living in Palestine for generation,s whatever name you want to call it)

          On August 20, 1930, the General Executive Committee of the Russian Soviet Republic (RSFSR) accepted the decree “On formation of the Birobidzhan national region
          The State Planning Committee considered the Birobidzhan national region as a separate economic unit and autonomous homeland for Jews. In 1932, the first scheduled figures of the region development were considered and authorized.

          According to Rabbi Mordechai Scheiner, the former Chief Rabbi of Birobidzhan and Chabad Lubavitch representative to the region, “Today one can enjoy the benefits of the Yiddish culture and not be afraid to return to their Jewish traditions. It’s safe without any anti-Semitism,
          There was no need to occupy Palestine-Zionists don’t believe in the Dispensationalist worldview(for the most part the Zionist leadership were and are mainly atheists)

            Whether Stalin himself was Jewish is up for question but he was an equal opportunity Killer
            but with the notable exception of Lenin (Vladimir Ulyanov Lenin only was 1/4 Jewish on his maternal grandfather side),Soviet Jews were many among the founders and pioneers of Soviet Russia : Trotsky, Kamenev, Yakov Sverdlov ,Grigori Zinoviev , Karl Radek ,Maxim Litvinov ,Moisei Uritsky. The prominent part in the system of terrorism applied by the Extraordinary Commissions for Combatting Counter-Revolution [the Cheka] has been taken by Jews, and in some notable cases by Jewesses. Lenin’s first Politburo was dominated by men of Jewish origins.
            So your point is what exactly ???

      • Bill Tilghman

        Tell us, Thorstein, what happened in Germany that led to the establishment of a homeland for the jewish people of the world? Here is a clue, it wasn’t Truman’s doing, nor was it Roosevelt’s.

        Additionally, the British tried to stop the jews from settling in Israel. They failed because the people were determined that what happened in occupied France, Germany, and in Russia would never happen again.

The only thing missing is the enormous Barbary slave trade, where Muslim ships would kidnap whole villages from Ireland and Iceland and sell their prisoners in the slave markets of North Africa.

      You were saying about voting in terrorist orgs !
      Israel has a long pedigree of doing exactly that -Menachem Begin was called a terrorist and a fascist by Albert Einstein and 27 other prominent Jewish intellectuals in a letter to the New York Times which was published on December 4, 1948. Specifically condemned was the participation of the Irgun in the Deir Yassin massacre
      Irgun was described as a terrorist organization by the United Nations, British, and United States governments, and in media such as The New York Times newspaper, and by the Anglo-American Committee of Inquiry
      The letter warns American Jews against supporting Begin’s request for funding of his political party Herut, and ends with the warning

      “The discrepancies between the bold claims now being made by Begin and his party and their record of past performance in Palestine bear the imprint of no ordinary political party. This is the unmistakable stamp of a Fascist party for whom terrorism (against Jews, Arabs, and British alike), and misrepresentation are means, and a “Leader State” is the goal.”

      Lehi was described as a terrorist organization by the British authorities and United Nations mediator Ralph Bunche

    And yet the turncoat Jew Kissinger says Israel will not exist 10 years from now. Babylon the Great(America) is falling. Israel will be left with only one way out in the end and that is Jesus Christ. The noose is tightening and I cannot help but think that prophecy is coming true now. I could be very wrong but never in history have we seen the confluence of events of total world wide economic collapse coming and world war at the same time. Perhaps the Christians will play the major role in this episode, I don’t know. One thing I can say is that we live in historic and interesting times and I hope I can live long enough to see it’s fruition. It’s a great time to be alive.

    The fact that Israel is so small that nukes would endanger all others in the region, let alone destroying for 1000 years what palestinian’s claim is theirs, It will be necessary for an invasion of a traditional army lest they destroy the whole reason they wanted Israel out of there in the first place. Being small sometimes has advantages. Remember that when you are fighting a small person, his direct aim is your nuts.

      The Samson Option is the name that some military analysts have given to Israel’s deterrence strategy of massive retaliation with nuclear weapons as a “last resort” against nations whose military attacks threaten its existence.

      Commentators also have employed the term to refer to situations where non-nuclear, non-Israeli actors, have threatened conventional weapons retaliation. Two examples have been given: Yassir Arafat and Hezbollah.
      in 2003, an Israeli military historian, Martin van Creveld was quoted in David Hirst’s The Gun and the Olive Branch (2003) as saying:

      We possess several hundred atomic warheads and rockets and can launch them at targets in all directions, perhaps even at Rome. Most European capitals are targets for our air force. Our armed forces, however, are not the thirtieth strongest in the world, but rather the second or third. We have the capability to take the world down with us. And I can assure you that that will happen before Israel goes under.

    Mr. Glenn, you are seeing things ahead of most of your fellow media reporters. Most of the media is biased, and not for humanitarian or any other good reasons. They are biased because this is the modern way to be anti-Semite and hide it behind fake humanity. There is no reasonable way to understand why hundreds of thousands of Arabs that were killed by their brothers around Israel in the last two years didn’t make even a small fraction of the reactions comparing to the Israeli defensive campaign in Gaza (with less then 1% casualties), aiming to stop rockets/missiles and destroy tunnels – all built and used to attack Israeli civilians.

    One day the rest of the world will understand that the Muslims Jihad is targeting all and every non-Muslims. We see in France, England, the Scandinavians and even in the US the roots of this understanding, and I am sure that it is only a matter of time until the world will understand that Israel is the solution, not the problem. I wish that other reporters would see the way things are in the same clarity you do.

      Actually organised religions of ALL flavors have a nasty habit and history of persecuting the “non believers”-It has a precedence in medieval Europe, also.

    One can imagine the waves of outrage and indignation from Israeli apologists if this character was an Arab shooting Israeli children-An Instagram post by an Israel Defense Forces sniper boasts of murdering 13 Gazan children in one day. An IDF Combat Engineering Corps Soldier, specifically, David D. Ovadia posed with a Barrett .50 caliber sniper rifle.

    Ovadia posted his comments on the Instagram account of Palestinian Sherrii ElKaderi.
    the “hacktivist” group “Anonymous” took control of his Instagram account, deleting it entirely. For “good measure” Anonymous sources said that they hacked the websites of the Mossad intelligence agency in Israel “for the brave IDF Sniper”, in reference to Ovadia. By 11:30, they had taken down the Israeli Ministry of Defense as well, and similarly attributed it as a response to Ovadia’s confessions.

    Glenn, it’s already been a long war
    as we enter the 14th year 8th month of Ezekiel’s war. And
    another white washed peace has been broken. But if you really want to
    understand do what Jesus said to do read the books of Daniel. Start with Daniel
    8 then subtract 333 from the number given. The truth just might set you free if
    you do the math?

    • jim

      Christian apologists frequently argue that if Daniel were full of historical errors, as the critics say, learned Jews would have spotted those errors and prevented the book from being canonized in the Hebrew Bible. Actually, this argument carries little weight because successful religious forgeries have been common throughout history.

      To begin with, many a Mormon today embraces Joseph Smith’s Book of Mormon, an alleged history of ancient America miraculously translated from gold plates that had been buried in a hill in upstate New York fourteen centuries before his time. Some of our nation’s most brilliant doctors, lawyers, engineers, computer scientists, and corporate executives are devout Mormons. This dubious book demands and receives self-sacrificing morality, honesty, and obedience from its adherents.

      Alas, mitochondrial DNA studies show that Native Americans are Asian rather than Jewish. In addition, the Book of Mormon contains many other errors demonstrating that it was written by a modern American rather than an ancient Native American.

      The Mormons are not the only ones to embrace forgeries. Ignatius of Antioch had written seven genuine epistles in the early second century, but a fourth-century impersonator interpolated false passages into his genuine epistles, and forged six more epistles in his name. The fraud was exposed only in modern times, but for centuries the Catholic Church used the expanded collection of Ignatius’ epistles to support the authority of the Catholic hierarchy.

    Right Glenn, this is the beginning of violence in the Middle East that’s been ongoing since 3500 BC. I agree with Glenn that empathy is key to any negotiation and that Hamas is a barrier in the process. Every American President ends up attempting to negotiate peace in the Middle East. From Carter’s Camp David Accords to the 2007 Annapolis Conference, a lasting peace deal seems impossible. Perhaps because fighting is part of life for many in the region:

    Arab-Israeli conflict (combined casualty figure 76,338-87,338+)
    Iran-Iraq war (combined death count 645,000-823,000+)
    Iraq War (combined casualty figure of 86,000-101,000)
    Unification of Saudi Arabia (combined casualties 7,989-8,989+)
    Turkish War of Independence (combined figure 170,500-873,000+)
    Iraqi-Kurdish conflict (combined casualty figure 138,800-320,100)
    Middle Eastern theater of World War II (combined casualty figure 12,338-14,898+)
    Iran crisis of 1946 (combined casualty figure 1,921+)
    Arab–Israeli conflict (combined casualty figure 76,338-87,338+)
    North Yemen Civil War (combined 100,000-200,000 casualties)

    Observation-The claim that Gaza,ns are committing war crimes by definition whenever it fires rockets at Israel, even if it hit military targets, because those rockets were primitive and inherently inaccurate and may hit civilian,s versus Israeli missiles which are precise and can potentially avoid civilian casualties -therefore making their use permissible-doesn’t hold true !

    Because -by this standard, only countries rich enough to purchase high-tech weapons, have a right to defend themselves against aerial assaults. It is a curious law that would negate the raison d’être of law: the substitution of might by right.!
    Some 95% of the 64 Israelis who have been killed during the current fighting are soldiers; some 75% of the nearly 1,500 Palestinians who have been killed are civilian.
    The numbers speak for themselves-the entire population of Gaza are victim,s of collective punishment-a war crime!

    There is only one way to defeat Islam. Go after religion itself. Heretical? Not at all. After all Israel was birthed in large part thanks to the resources and the support of the Atheist Jew Oligarchs. Ostensibly to end antisemitism, but more likely for the purpose of establishing a land base from which Jews might exercise hard power.

    More, at it’s establishment the mantra was that it would be an atheist state. Notwithstanding that the charisma of Judaism has triumphed.

    But the Zionist enterprise has gone awry. Spare me the need to expound on that prima facie truth. While most would point at the evil of Sharia law as the underlayment of the strife and warfare roiling the Middle East; the truth is that the Judaic theology of chosen-ness and God having gifted that land to the Jews is the seminal cause:

    And most certainly, is the fact that entangles U.S. America in this never ending struggle for supremacy.

    What must happen, and likely you Jews are the only ones with the capability of accomplishing this: to paraphrase Netanyahu: Go after religion. No, you don’t have to start by exposing the rotten pillars of Judaism. Or Christianity.

    To make the task doable, begin with Islam. It is beyond the scope of this forum at this time, to lay out a proper case, but in level of difficulty, it is a cakewalk. Do it.

    Yes, it soon becomes apparent to those who would absorb the new to them knowledge; that that spear, spears not just Islam, but also Judaism and Christianity. And so be it. For to kill the beast of religion, that is killing so many people, and even taking down whole Countries, we must kill all three of them.

    Just think, no more witch hunts. No more crusades. No more falsely believing that God commands you to kill. For people really do act out based on what they believe.

      An autonomous place for Jews already existed that they could call there own-In 1934 the Soviet Government established the Jewish Autonomous Region, popularly known as Birobidzhan, in a sparsely populated area some five thousand miles east of Moscow. Designated as the national homeland of Soviet Jewry, Birobidzhan was part of the Kremlin’s effort to create an alternative to Palestine.

            ‘I dont think “god” is a real estate agent.’ lol thats a great one!

            But if you don’t have a copy of the Christian bible or the Jewish Torah, you wouldn’t know.

            Yes, God is a real estate agent. The land is an inheritance to the common man Hebrew and no other. Not even any Canaanite relatives alive today!

            Thanks for that – Real estate agent lol

            The Land of Israel is an inheritance to the common man Hebrew. That would include YOU should you follow what Torah states as LAW. If you did that you too would be considered ‘chosen’. If you do not follow the laws therein, you and your rebellious tribe will be expelled from the land like a bad case of diarrhea.

            The Jews, like many before them, have not been good stewards of the Land, so its a dose of prune juice for them.

  • Yo Mamma

    Glenn, I can tell that you never read the front section of your Christian bible.

    If you did, you would know, without any doubt, who the inheritors of the LAND OF ISRAEL are. And its not the Jews. And its not the Christians. And its not the Muslims. No, none of those Glenn.

    Glenn, read the front section of your Christian bible and it will tell your (The Torah section) that the ‘chosen people’, those that obeyed God Creator while crossing the Jordan River, as common men, have as an inheritance the LAND OF ISRAEL.

    Now if you don’t believe the Torah do be the Word of God, we have little to debate. But its got a lot of substance, longevity and following, 3500 years after its creation. Listen pal, if you don’t believe this section in your bible: If you don’t follow the laws in this section in your bible – Remove it. It doesn’t apply to you.

    And it doesn’t apply to the Jews that now occupy the land. It doesn’t apply to the Christians before them and the Muslims before them.

    But Glenn, follow and obey those laws, and you too could be a ‘chosen’ and live in the Land as your inheritance.

    The LAND OF ISRAEL is like no other country. There are God given laws/conditions to live in the Land. The Jews don’t follow the laws, nor did the Christians or the Muslims before them. All were kicked out the the Canaanites before all of them. Don’t expect that the Jewish state remain Jewish for much longer because statistically and prophetically it won’t.

    I just thought I would mention this little known fact to help clear up the many misconceptions as to who the rightfully God given inhabitants of the Land are.

    What going on in the Middle East to me is a religion civil war between Sunni and Shiti one back by Iran and Russia the other back by Saudi Arabia , Egypt, Kuwait etc !! Now the Jews,Israel and the Christains are caught in the crossfire between the two difference side fighting for the leadership position !! For which one that will lead the united radical Muslims caliphate ,they are trying in showing their prowness by how many infidel’s they can kill Christians or Jews using them as fall guy scapegoats to show how strong they are and how much they’re into Shari Law !!! Now our supposely moderate allies of Saudi Arabia,Egypt, Kuwait are afraid of Iran back fractions of Hamas,Hezbollah who made threat they’re are next for takeover, Then with Syria a threat of a major operation base of Iran to take over countries in the area Jordan,Saudii Arabia ,Plus Iran nuclear threat looming if they don’t submit to Iran !! Now with obama leaning toward Iran back terrorists fractions like Hamas and giving Iran more time to get the nuclear bomb , they don’t trust obama and his leaving big void in not backing them up !!! So now enemy of my enemy is my ally so that why Saudi Arabia is backing Israel against Hamas,plus if Israel free up from one enemy front ,they might conduct a pre-emptive strike against Iran nuclear program remove a nuclear threat to Saudi Arabia etc !!! Now if true Saudia Arabia is not so clean either they’re backing ISIS who are killing Christians . To me obama completely on the wrong side should stay out of the religion civil war and back our trusted ally of western free world which is Israel and back Israel fully without a question !!!

    • Yo Mamma

      Obama is doing the right thing by staying out of the Jewish, Muslim conflict. God will sort this out, not an American president. The UN messed up by giving the Land of Israel to the Jews when they have zero right to the land. read my comment below before answering or asking why

        Our President obama & kerry is not staying out of it , he’s giving Israel token help as his cover ,but his heart is with radical Muslims fractions like Hamas who are back by Iran, that why kerry try to force a one sided cease fire in favor of Hamas, So Hamas can again wage war against Israel until it is weaken for a takeover !! Just look at obama actions not his BS talk or token feign moves !!! In the big picture his actions,non-actions,delay actions is for one by one bring down our allies and strengthening our enemies power and their numbers . So the U.S be standing alone that is not in our best interest and the western free world will be no more which include U.S !! Then it be only the radical Muslim caliphate left !! Either Sunni or Shiti leading it and the communists to fight it out who will rule the world !!

    If Saudi Arabia and Egypt is threaten by these radicals fractions in Gaza and moderate Palestinians want these trouble makers fractions that bring war and hardship to Gaza population to leave !!! In frictional scenario of possible far fetch idea to bring peace to Gaza, so people can live with dignity, and the country flourish and have prosperity to progress to western standards of living with no restrictions of imports beside heavy weapons ,and have a stand alone independent state of Gaza !! With obama and Kerry that cannot be trusted they are rooting for Hamas but hiding it !! Israel would like to go in and clean out Hamas once and for all but it be very hard to do !!! Now here the far fetch idea is for Saudi Arabia to bank roll out side help to the Palestinians authority , they should hire Jordan crack troops ( mercenary ) and perform another black september operation which the country of Jordan have trouble makers flee their country and Jordan have peace for many years !!! Now these soldiers will fight to win completely and it be Muslims upon Muslims !! This will give moderate a strong voice that moderate Muslims will not have to submit to threats,blackmails of the extreme radicals fractions whims any more !! Just a frictional scenario idea !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Plus the Egyptian air force can assist these soldiers with their jet fighters and helicopter gunships and their tanks can aid in fire suppression !!! That if they’re willing to unite and face this threat and the Palestinians ask them for this help to rid their country of evil doing in secret in the beginning !!!??? Maybe have Jordan troops as reliable police force for GAZA to enforce the peace !! It up to Palestinians people to help themselves by asking for help from it’s allies of Egypt,Saudi Arabia,Jordan !!

      I believe Jordan is too being threaten by radical fractions in Gaza especially Hamas, so why not go to the source and cut off the head of the snake to bring about peace to the region and protect nations in the area of their sovereignty !!!!!!!!!! If Saudi Arabia and Egypt ,Jordan did this it would put a monkey wrench in obama and kerry plans in helping Iran back Hamas !!!! Maybe the palestinians authority and people will grow a strong backbone in saying no to Hamas and the radicals fractions in their midst with the backing of Saudi Arabia,Egypt ,Jordan !!!!??? This be far better than trusting the U.S with backstabbing obama and kerry at the helm, or the bias U.N in favor of radical fractions like Hamas !! Maybe once Israel finish up and Hamas is soften up and weaken this new alliance will move in to finish the job !!! ???? Moderate Muslims countries will have a need to unite from radicals threats because of the void that obama created in non- trust to back them !! This will better be for them to fend for themselves,and be more independent and do better job than the U.S could !! Plus it won’t raise recruitment levels of radicals ,because they’re not seeking help or interference of the infidel country of U.S !!

  • Sherlene Stroud

    It is fascinating that the Bible would predict, 2500 years in advance, the starting point and the ending point of the last generation. The starting point being the rebirth of Israel and the ending point being the Second Coming of Christ.

    Many prophecies that are slated to be a part of this last generation have come to pass. I believe a generation is between 70-80 years as stated in Psalm 90:10. It amazes me that out of the last 2500 years it is within this 70-80 year time span that these prophecies have begun to take shape. Below is a list of the prophecies that have come about within this last generation:

    * The re-gathering of the Jews into their homeland (Ezekiel 37:11-13) after thousands of years of God ordained exile. Another amazing fact, after thousands of years living in other nations, there Jewish culture has remained intact.
    * The rebirth of Israel as a nation in 1948 (Ezekiel 37:10-14; Isaiah 43:5, 6; 66:7-8) in one day. Israel literally became a nation again in one day. Following their declaration of statehood, the next day, five Arab nations attacked Israel. But Israel defeated them and has grown into a major world military power. This prophecy of rebirth essentially kicked off the beginning of the last generation.
    * The Arab world will claim they are rightful owners of the land of Israel (Ezekiel 35:5, 10; 36:2, 5). It wasn’t until the Jews began migrating back to Palestine in hopes of declaring Israeli statehood that the Arab world laid claim to the land. Before that, it was of no value to them.
    * The desert land of Israel will bloom again during this last generation (Luke 21:29-31; Isaiah 41:18-21).
    * The city of Jerusalem recaptured by Israel 19 years later in 1967 (Zechariah 8:7-8; 12:3). Jerusalem couldn’t be a stumbling block to peace with Israel if it wasn’t back in their hands.
    * A Middle East peace plan with Israel, where Jerusalem is considered a major stumbling block will develop in the last days (Daniel 9:27; Zechariah 12:3).
    * This peace plan with Israel will ultimately have a seven-year time limit (Daniel 9:27). Virtually every Middle East peace plan calls for a timeline for which peace must be established. The splitting of Jerusalem will be the final jewel of the peace accord.
    * The ruins of Israel will be rebuilt (Amos 9:11 &13). This has kicked into high gear since Israel became a nation (1948).
    * An eastern nation capable of fielding a 200 million man army (Revelation 9:16) will arise during the tribulation period. No nation has ever been able to field an army of this magnitude until this generation.
    * The Euphrates River will be dried up to enable a great army to cross (Revelation 16:12). This could not be done until 1990 without the help of modern day technology.
    * During this generation, man will obtain the ability to view an event simultaneously all over the world (Revelation 11:9-10). Certainly, this was impossible until satellite technology was invented during this generation.
    * Russia, Iran, a host of northern African nations, and the surrounding Islamic world will forge an alliance and attack Israel (Ezekiel 38 & 39). Today, most of these nations (listed in Ezekiel 38) are already in an alliance with each other.
    * World leaders will begin talking abut world governance as a necessary evil. This will eventually lead to a one world government led by the Antichrist (Revelation 13). If you are a frequent reader of mine, you know that this is happening as I write. The first significant world body called the United Nations was created in 1945 to encourage global cooperation. Today, they have more power global power than anytime in their history.
    * The temple will be rebuilt (Revelation 11:1, 2; Daniel 9:27). This is yet future, but it is a foregone conclusion that various temple organizations, once the okay to rebuild is given, will have it completed within months.
    * The Antichrist will rise up out of the New Roman Empire known today as the European Union (Daniel 9:27).
    * In the last days, knowledge will increase dramatically (Daniel 12:4). There is no debating the fact that knowledge has increased in leaps and bounds over the last 100 years, but particularly during the last 70-80 years. Medicine and technological discoveries have exploded in this last generation.
    * Earthquakes will increase in strength and intensity as we head toward the rapture of the church and the beginning of the tribulation period (Mark 13:8). Just in the last few years we have seen major earthquakes in Chile, Haiti, New Zealand, Indonesia, and Japan that have claimed hundreds of thousands of lives. The years 2000-2010 was named the most deadly and destructive decade for global natural disasters in history and earthquakes claimed the most lives of all the natural disasters. Even secular world news reports acknowledge that we have had an increase in freakish natural disasters over the last ten years.
    * In the days unrest among the nations will breakout (Mark 13:8) with troubles. This trouble and unrest is currently spreading throughout the Middle East (April 2, 2011) and is a sign of the nearest of the coming of the Lord.

    It is during this narrow block of time that all these prophecies are beginning to or already have come to past. Are we close to the rapture and the start of the tribulation period? I believe we are, but only the Lord knows for sure.

    If a Biblical generation is indeed as Psalm 90:10 states, between 70-80 years, we are in the final years of this last generation. Most prophecy experts believe the last generation began in 1948 when Israel became a nation. If we add 70 years (2018) or 80 years (2028) to our proposed starting date and subtract 7 years for the tribulation period we come up with a date between 2011 and 2021. It is also likely that there will be a gap of time between the rapture of the church and the start of the tribulation period.

    When arguing that Israel is a democratic country, Israel and its supporters typically point out that the Palestinians living in Israel (commonly and misleadingly termed “Israeli Arabs”) have the right to vote and that there are Palestinians in the Knesset (Israeli parliament).

    The reality, of course, is that Israel’s Palestinian citizens do not enjoy equal rights to the same degree or extent as Israel’s Jewish population.
    non-partisan Israeli research institute founded in 1991 and based in Jerusalem, has been studying the quality of Israeli democracy and how well it functions. The result is “The Democracy Index”,

    For nearly every indicator in the “Rights” measurement, the Index placed Israel in the lower half of the list:

    “Israel’s ranking in this aspect is worrisome. For nearly every indicator, Israel places in the lower half of the list. Protection of human rights in Israel is poor; there is serious political and economic discrimination against the Arab minority; there is much less freedom of religion than in other democracies; and the socioeconomic inequality indicator is among the highest in the sample.”
