Arab Muslims are People of Color, Arab Christians are White People
9-22-20, Daniel Greenfield [excerpted] -- What the New York Times’ racial list says about the persecution of Christians while maintaining its proud commitment to printing all the news that will divide Americans by race, sex and creed. The Times published a list of what it claimed were the "922 of the most powerful people in America" while claiming that 112 of the 431 House of Representatives members are people of color.[..]
Like all racist Rohrsarch charts, the Times’ racial list says more about it than about America; claiming that Rep. Rashida Tlaib as a person of color and listing Rep. Justin Amash as white. Tlaib's parents and Amash's father both came from Arab towns and neighborhoods in Israel. Amash's mother came from Syria. They both have traditional Arab names. So how is Tlaib a person of color while Amash is white? Their Israeli families in Israel are both Arabs, but, aside from Tlaib being a militant leftist Trump hater, Amash is an ex-GOP now Libertarian, the only obvious difference is that Amash’s family was Christian while Tlaib’s family is Muslim.
The New York Times’ message is that Muslims are “people of color” and Christians aren’t. It doesn’t matter if their families might have lived some 20 minutes away from each other. Arab Christians are white while Arab Muslims are a minority group - it's about religion. [..]
It doesn't matter whether you come from Syrian, Lebanon, Iraq or even Iran: if you're not a practicing Muslim, you're white.
It’s not just Jews or Arabs who aren’t considered minorities unless they’re Muslim. Rep. Anna Eshoo's father was an Assyrian Christian who, in her own words, "was driven from the Middle East." The New York Times still lists her as white. Assyrians and Armenians are not people of color. The difference isn’t, as we see in Amash and Tlaib’s case, racial, it’s religious. [..]
The New York Times' awkward absurdities short list:
The Left barely notices when white leftists have been able to get away with pretending to be black. But when it comes to the Middle East, it recognizes only one group of people as legitimate. Its conquerors.
Christians, Jews, and non-practicing Muslims need not apply.
The New York Times’ racial list is revealing when it comes to the prejudices and agendas of the allies of the Islamist movements and their organizations ethnically cleansing Christians. The Left’s twisted ideas about race lead it to present the region’s persecuted Christian, Jewish, and non-Muslim minorities as white oppressors, while its Muslim supremacist majority are the oppressed people of color who need to be liberated from the oppression of their victims. This isn’t just twisted. It’s an ideological argument for genocide. *

Middle East Update:
Israel & United Arab Emirates Deal
Who Benefits? Many ...
Amir Tsarfati said: 'STOP WORRYING THE TRUMP ISRAEL PEACE DEAL WILL NEVER HAPPEN IN A MILLION YEARS!'
8-17-20, From Israel Bible end time reporter, Jewish Christian Amir Tsarfati reports on the Israel & UAE recent agreement and the trickle down affect it'll have on the Middle East. One important effect is that Saudi Arabia has opened its airspace to the two nations.
PAST HISTORY: Airspace to Israel has been Blocked for Decades by These Islamic Nations - As of 2018 the following nations block Israel travel to and from: Afghanistan, Algeria, Bahrain, Bangladesh, Brunei, Iran, Iraq, Kuwait, Lebanon, Libya, Malaysia, Morocco, Oman, Pakistan, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Somalia, Sudan, Syria, Tunisia, UAE, Yemen. These countries do not officially recognize Israel and prohibit the Jewish nation from using their airspace [more here].
Another fact that more of the gulf nations may also do similar agreements with Israel before November 3, 2020 and the USA presidential election. The apparent purpose is to support Pres Trump's re-election as they hated it when the Democrats and Obama were in the White House making deals with the dreaded Iranians.
Amir enumerates all the reasons why President Trump is best US friend Israel has ever had. He explains why the Jewish State delays the annexation of Judea & Samaria [aka West Bank] until after the US election and much more ...

God said, "I will also gather all nations, and will bring them down into the valley of Jehoshaphat, and will plead with them there for My people and for My heritage Israel, whom they have scattered among the nations and parted My land."
8-17-20, ArutzSheva -- Jared Kushner, adviser and son-in-law to US Pres Trump addressing the Jewish State Israel peace agreement. He recently helped broker between Israel and the United Arab Emirates [UAE] and said:
"Israel has made a very generous proposal for the establishment of a Palestinian state, including an exchange of territories. The understanding that this is the situation has enabled the breakthrough that led to the current agreement. The president laid out his vision for peace in January this year ... and this is the first map ever agreed to by one of the parties publicly put out in a peace negotiation. We got Israel to agree to negotiate on the basis of the process of division, they agreed to the map and agreed to move forward on a Palestinian state. This was a major breakthrough that changed the view of a lot of people in the region about Israel's seriousness to actually make concessions to resolve this longstanding conflict. [..]
When asked how the US would make certain that Israel does not unilaterally annex any territory he said: "We built a very trusting relationship with Israel. President Trump is committed to holding them accountable to it, and Israel has agreed with us that they will not move forward without our consent. We do not plan to give our consent for some time, as of right now the focus has to be on getting this new peace agreement implemented. We really want to get as much interchange between Israel and the United Arab Emirates as possible, and we really want Israel to focus on creating new relationships and new alliances.
"That land is land that right now that Israel, quite frankly controls. It’s Israelis who are living there; it’s not going anywhere. There shouldn’t be any urgency to apply Israeli law. So we believe that they will stick to their agreement.” Source: https://www.israelnationalnews.com/News/News.aspx/285415

Israel & United Arab Emirates [UAE] Peace Deal - Israel’s Judea & Samaria [West Bank] Annexations On Hold
Officials from the three countries called the accord “historic breakthrough toward peace.”
8-13-20, Reuters, Dubai - Jerusalem - Washington -- On August 13, 2020 Israel and the United Arab Emirates [UAE] announced that they will normalize diplomatic ties and forge a broad new relationship, which U.S. President Donald Trump helped broker. A move that reshapes the order of Middle East politics from the Palestinian issue to the fight against Iran.
Over the past two decades, the United Arab Emirates with an area of appx 32,000 sq miles and a population of less than 10 million [but the Arab world’s second-largest economy thanks to oil] has exerted growing commercial and military clout in the Gulf and the wider region; much of it aimed at confronting Islamist militants and the influence of Iran.
Israel population is approximately 9 million with a land mass of appx 8,000 sq miles. Israel and the UAE are expected to soon exchange ambassadors and embassies. A signing ceremony is due to be held at the White House.
Under the new ABRAHAM ACCORD, the Jewish nation of Israel [the only non Muslim nation in the Middle East] agreed to suspend its planned annexation of areas of Judea & Samaria [aka West Bank].
It also firms up opposition to regional power Iran, which the UAE, Israel and the United States view as the main threat in the conflict-driven Middle East.
In 1979 Israel signed peace agreements with Egypt and Jordan in 1994. However, the UAE, along with most other Arab Islamic nations, did not recognize Israel and had no formal diplomatic or economic relations with it until now.
It becomes the first Gulf Arab country to reach such a deal with the Jewish state.
Some Muslims in Israel [aka Palestinian] denounced it as a “stab in the back” to their cause.
- In a televised address Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said the deal would lead to “full and formal peace with the UAE hope that other countries in the region would follow its example.”
- Senior UAE official Anwar Gargash said the deal had helped defuse what he called a ticking time-bomb urging the Israelis and Palestinians to return to the negotiating table.
- President Trump’s special envoy Brian Hook called the agreement a “nightmare” for Iran.
- An Iranian official, Hossein Amir-Abdollahian said in a tweet: “Abu Dhabi’s behavior has no justification, turning back on the Palestine cause. W/ that strategic mistake, #UAE will be engulfed in Zionism fire.”
- President Trump said, “Everybody said this would be impossible. Now that the ice has been broken, I expect more Arab and Muslim countries will follow the United Arab Emirates’ lead.”

Macron warns Iran against 'interference' in Lebanon
8-12-20, France leader Macron the first world leader to visit Beirut after the 8/4 explosion, has taken the lead role in coordinating the international response.
8-8-20, WashPost -- PARIS — It was almost as if Emmanuel Macron forgot that Lebanon is no longer a French protectorate; Muslims won independence in 1946. The French leader was quick to head coordination of humanitarian aid and visited Lebanon only two days after explosion on Aug 4, 2020. He was cheered, hugged and loved by the adoring crowds as he comforted the distraught.
8-10-20, TechTimes.com -- The smoke seen after the explosion in Beirut, Lebanon on August 4, 2020 was reported to be explosive Ammonium Nitrate chemical... but it is not. If the explosion was due to explosive Ammonium Nitrate chemical, the smoke's color should be yellow. One of the United Kingdom's leading bomb experts said that the smoke's color determines what kinds of materials have been burning. In the Beirut explosion, the color was unmistakeably orange. The color orange smoke usually happens when military missiles are burning. You can clearly see a brick orange column tending to bright red, typical of lithium participation. Which in the form of lithium-metal is the propellant for military missiles; concluding there were armaments there. Apparently the fire reached other places in the area wherein the armaments might be placed, triggering the orange smoke. It's not clear whether the military gears were deliberately set on fire or not.

8-4-20, ABCNews -- A massive explosion shook Lebanon's capital Beirut on Tuesday, wounding hundreds of people, killing 100+ and causing widespread damage. Israel has denied any involvement and offered humanitarian aid.
2-14-18, FreeBeacon -- Militants tied to Hezbollah, the Iranian-controlled terror group that operates along Israel's northern border in Lebanon, claim they have deployed more than 70,000 long-range missiles across Syria and Lebanon in preparation for a strike on Israel. The number of missiles could grow to nearly half-a-million within the next year, according to these militant groups. [..] Middle Eastern experts who spoke to the Washington Free Beacon said that Iran's strategy may be to line Israel's northern borders with advanced missiles ahead of a possible confrontation with the Jewish state. [..] "Syria and Hezbollah [Lebanon] will wage a ‘joint missile campaign' against Israel, and… Iranian experts are ready to launch missiles at Israel from every part of Lebanon and Syria," according to the pro-Hezbollah publication, a translation of which was performed by the Middle East Media Research Institute, or MEMRI, which monitors radical communications. These Iranian-backed terror proxies claim they will be able to amass at least half-a-million rockets within the next year if Israel does not take immediate action to bomb missile caches in Syria and Lebanon. ... it's important to note that Iran has also transferred a massive rocket arsenal of 180,000 to Hezbollah in Lebanon. The strategy is to saturate Israel with rockets from two northern fronts and overwhelm their air defenses. Israel has some big decisions ahead. The longer they wait to neutralize this threat, the more nasty that two-front rocket arsenal becomes.
Obama Administration’s Iran Deal Failure: A Reckoning
6-6-18, NatlReview -- The Iran deal was a deceptive dereliction of duty from the outset, resting on a fundamentally flawed understanding of Iran, the Middle East, and the world. Obama administration tried to do Iran an immense financial favor, one not required by the deal itself, to uphold the mythical “spirit” of the agreement (yes, that’s their off-the-record excuse). Iran had reportedly complained that it “wasn’t reaping the benefits it envisioned,” and the Obama administration attempted to help — even though it had publicly assured Americans that “Iran will be denied access to the world’s most important market and unable to deal in the world’s most important currency.”
In exchange for milquetoast assurances about Iran’s nuclear program — How milquetoast? Just yesterday we learned that Iran opened a new centrifuge assembly center at its Natanz nuclear site — the Obama administration allowed Iran access to international arms markets, agreed to an immense stimulus through sanctions relief, and traded pallets of cash for American hostages. Worse still, it gave money back to Iran even as it used American tax dollars (instead of Iran’s own funds) to compensate American victims of Iranian terror. The best possible spin on the deal is that the Obama administration gambled on its own misbegotten ideology, believing against all evidence that massive giveaways would soften jihadist hearts.

Lebanon Explosion Thousands Injured
8-4-20, *, Lebanon’s city of Beirut’s health minister General Security chief Abbas Ibrahim said: 'It appears that there is a warehouse containing material that was confiscated years ago, and it appears that it was highly explosive material.' More than 3,000 people have been wounded following the blast. At approximately 6pm local time smoke billowing from the waterfront area could be seen shortly before an enormous fireball exploded into the sky and blanketing the city in a thick mushroom cloud. Witnesses report the sheer enormity of the blast, which was heard 125 miles away in Cyprus, and likened it to a 'nuclear bomb.'
Although bitter rival, Israel has denied any involvement and offers aid [the nations are still technically at war]. Defense Minister Benny Gantz and Foreign Minister Gabi Ashkenazi on behalf international intermediaries offer medical and humanitarian aid. Last week, Israel accused the Lebanese terror group Hezbollah of trying to send gunmen across the UN-demarcated Blue Line saying it held the Lebanese government responsible for what it termed an attempted 'terrorist' attack amid escalating tensions along the country's southern border.
The port's governor reported tha he doesn't know the explosion's cause and he's never seen such destruction, comparing the sobering scenes to Hiroshima and Nagasaki, which were obliterated by atomic bombs in the Second World War.' Immediate and surrounding buildings have been obliterated; damage has occurred miles away. Experts report that fireworks shooting out of the smoke and a combination of the fireworks and highly flammable fertilizer could have sparked such an explosion.
Beirut's Hotel Dieu Hospital reported to be overwhelmed with more than 500 wounded patients and not able to receive more, while Lebanon's Red Cross said it had been drowning in calls from injured people, many who are still trapped in their homes. [..]
The explosion comes amid political tension in Lebanon, with street demonstrations against the government's handling the worst economic crisis since the 1975-1990 civil wars. In January 2020 mass protests against the corruption allegations and a faltering economy led to the fall of Prime Minister Saad Hariri's government. Independent Hassan Diab succeeded Saad Hariri on January 21, 2020 and cut the country's budget by $700 million and a month later put in place a financial rescue plan.
Analysts suggest Lebanon’s crisis has been prolonged because of political sectarianism, with the president, prime minister and speaker split between the three largest cultural groups; Christians; Shia Muslim and Sunni Muslims. Parliament is also drawn down the middle between Christian and Muslim members. External powers have been able to interfere in the country; Iran backs the militant Hezbollah Shia movement.
In a television address Prime Minister Hasan Diab vowed that 'those responsible for this catastrophe will pay the price,' and declared Wednesday, August 5, 2020 a day of national mourning.

Lost in World's Hysteria Over Covid Virus is Prophecy News Pertaining to Christian and Jew Hating Islamic Nation of Turkey [the goat]
Daniel's vision: "I saw him come close unto the ram, and he was moved with choler against him, and smote the ram, and brake his two horns: and there was no power in the ram to stand before him, but he cast him down to the ground, and stamped upon him: and there was none that could deliver the ram out of his hand. Therefore the he goat waxed very great: and when he was strong, the great horn was broken; and for it came up four notable ones toward the four winds of heaven. And out of one of them came forth a little horn, which waxed exceeding great, toward the south, and toward the east, and toward the pleasant land. And it waxed great, even to the host of heaven; and it cast down some of the host and of the stars to the ground, and stamped upon them."
7-26-20, Pastor Steve wonders if this scripture refers to the Sophia Cathedral. I always thought it referred to a future war between Iran [ram] and Turkey [goat]. The Islamic Ottoman empire, Turkey and the centuries old once Christian Cathedral 'HAGIA SOPHIA' now used as Islamic Mosque thanks to President Tayyip Erdogan of Turkey is big news. As it's yet another abomination desolation setup ... Christian Church by way of museum turned into Jesus hating Islamic edifice as in Jerusalem in 688 AD the Jewish Temple Mount was taken over by Jew hating Islamic edifice.

Daniel 12:11, Mark 13:14

Israel's Muslim Children Are Indoctrinated in Hate:
Islamic [aka Palestinian] Schools Are Typical Muslim Schools
No Israeli “oppression” is needed to explain the hate of Muslims in Jewish State
7-23-20, * -- Indoctrinating Muslim [aka Palestinian] schoolchildren to hate and oppose the existence of the Jewish state of Israel; after examining appx 400 textbooks and teachers’ guides a recently study  shows there are three aspects to this hate filled education: Islamic traditional ideals of Jihad [war] and martyrdom are exalted and given a special role in the liberation struggle.
Citing the Islamic book "Koran" and other Islamic writings, Islamic textbooks teach that “The corruption of the Children of Israel on earth was and will be the reason of their destruction”; and, though allied to them, Muhammad “was aware of the Jews’ deceitfulness and conspiracies.”
While indoctrinating the Muslim schoolchildren in 'Palestinian' schools to hate Jews may seem specific to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict—that is, may appear to be a product of politics and grievances—it is, in fact, part of a broader trend: school textbooks in a variety of other Muslim nations also teach hate for the “other”—even those who, far from being in a position to “oppress” Muslims are actually being oppressed by them. [..] Schools in Pakistan also continue to “teach their children to hate Christians and other religious minorities.”
Instead of minimizing hate materials and discouraging religious extremism [as in 2014 Muslim government had vowed to do after Islamic terror attack on a school killed 132 students], the opposite seems to be occurring with a growing trend toward a more biased curriculum and more religious extremism being taught in Pakistan’s public schools.
Pakistan Muslims: Speaking in 2019, a Pakistani Christian leader said that religious “minorities are considered infidels and they are depicted negatively in textbooks, which promote prejudices against minorities.” Because of this: Many minorities give their children Islamic names so they will not be singled out as Christians and become potential targets for discrimination in schools.
Turkey Muslims: Turkey demonizes non-Muslims - According to a Christian convert, who now lives in the U.S. “An anti-Christian attitude is a big part of the national identity [in Turkey], so anyone or anything that promotes Christianity is automatically suspicious.”
Iran Muslims: In Dec 2019 Iran unleashed sweeping crackdown on Christians, particularly those who have dared to convert from Islam to Christianity. Christians are being arrested and jailed on false charges, such as "promoting Zionism", "spreading corrupt Christians beliefs." One charge: "acting against national security" -- is often used "to prosecute Christians for their house church activities." More here
If Palestinian schoolchildren are being indoctrinated to hate Israel and Jews for “stealing their land” and generally oppressing them, what explains the fact that other children all throughout the Islamic world are also being indoctrinated to hate other non-Muslims, particularly disenfranchised Christian minorities who, far from “lording” over Muslims, are currently being persecuted by them?
The answer: Islam’s ingrained sense of supremacism and hate for non Muslims they call 'infidels' should be self-evident.

In 2008 Lord Stirling of Indiana USA Reports on Potential Event:
Iran War ... Jump forward to 2020 ... Iran has mysterious fires & explosions - sabotage suggested
9-6-2008, Alexander, Earl of Stirling, Indiana* – I have served as a consultant to three very high tech aerospace firms; specializing in advanced warfare especially as it relates to advanced weapon systems. I have been involved in advanced theoretical weaponry strategy and design for over 20 years and what I see unfolding with a war on Iran is the most frightening set of circumstances I have ever seen.
Sometime in the future there will be a war launched against Iran. The war may be started by Israel, or by the United States, or by a NATO/EU/US embargo, or by some 'false flag' attack. What matters is that it will begin. Regardless if the war begins with a limited number of air strikes against Iranian military and nuclear targets, or if an all-out several thousand target attack begins ... from day one the probabilities of the war becoming a major regional war within 48 hours are 90% or higher. The Iranians will simply not allow Israeli and/or American military forces to attack its territory without a major response.
Any significant counter-attack on Israel and/or American regional bases will trigger a much greater counter-response. The Iranians have equipped, paid for, and trained a massive unguided rocket and missile force in Lebanon. [..] The Islamic terror group Hezbollah in Lebanon is known to possess a considerable number of more advanced and longer range missiles. [..]
It now  appears that Israel has given up on the idea of a ground assault to remove the many rocket and missile launchers in Lebanon. [..] Israel will face:
The Israeli response will be nuclear annihilation of Syria, Iran, and parts of Lebanon with many tens of millions killed. Expect to see every city of any size destroyed. There will be insufficient people left in Syria, Iran and large parts of Lebanon to even bury the dead. Radiation will spread around the world from the nuclear bombs. [..]
The after effect of all of this may well lead to even more war as the non-neo-con nations will be so incensed at the massive lost of life that total global war may be unstoppable. – Stirling

Amir Tsarfati from Israel Explains the Complicated Facts About Israel, the Muslims, Dome of the Rock & Mecca
Mohammad Never Wanted the Jewish Lands He Prayed toward Mecca BUT then ...
Israel's enemy said: "I will plunder and loot and turn my hand against the resettled ruins and the people gathered from the nations, rich in livestock and goods, living at the center of the land." Sheba and Dedan and the merchants of Tarshish and all her villages will say to you, "Have you come to plunder? Have you gathered your hordes to loot, to carry off silver and gold, to take away livestock and goods and to seize much plunder?"'
7-13-20, Christian Amir Tsarfati from Israel gives an update; discussing Turkey's wars in the Middle East. All the signs of the last days are converging at the same time. Bible Prophecy is happening right before our eyes and like birth pains, [Matthew 24:8] the predicted events are happening more frequently and more intently. Iran, Libya, Sudan, Turkey and their inner workings are threatening Israel.
The founder of Islam, Mohammad only wanted the Jews to join his crusade, but when they wouldn't he killed them all and abandoned his quest for Jerusalem.
In 682 AD one Muslim tribe from Damascus built the Dome of the Rock on Temple Mount as a substitute for their Hajj from Damascus to Mecca. Their book Koran says zero about Jerusalem. In 1979 Iran began it's quest to takeover Israel ...
Never, in the history of the world have so many forces: religious, economic, scientific, techno-logic, ecologic, cultural, geopolitical, moral and spiritual converged together to bring the teetering world over the edge into the abyss and to a point of no return.
America is under attack from a virus and racial upheavals resulting in horrific destruction & rioting.
The Lord Jesus Christ said when you see all these signs happening, know that I am near, even at the door [Matthew 24:33]. America's upcoming presidential election on Nov 3, 2020 is being watched by Iran especially ... they understand what happens in Washington DC will affect the entire Middle East.

6-25-20, al-monitor.com -- Reportedly Iran has increased its weapon shipments to Syria to help the country face the USA newly introduced Caesar Act. This occurred just a few weeks after Iran defied US sanctions on Venezuela, in another indication that the Iranians are less concerned with short-term influence and are concentrating on the kind that crosses the Atlantic. The Caesar Act took effect June 17, 2020 seeking to pressure Syrian President Bashar al-Assad into negotiations with Pres Trump while preventing foreign allies from assisting the reconstruction of Syria's devastated cities and economy.

Minnesota State Rep says: Antifa and Muslim Groups Alliance
Plan to 'Police Minneapolis Under Muslim Rule'
In 2016 Thirty Thousand Immigrant Muslims in Minnesota
Muslim Ilhan Omar became MN Congresswoman in 2019
6-26-20, FrontPage* -- Weeks ago it would have sounded far fetched; it doesn’t anymore. Recently as the city of Minneapolis moves to dismantle its police force, Minnesota state Rep. Steve Green stated the obvious that virtually everyone else has been tiptoeing around and pretending isn’t there he said: “What you’re looking at, in my humble opinion, is Communism moving into Minneapolis and St. Paul. And not just Communism, but the Leftist/Islamic alliance. Antifa and Muslim organizations plan to police Minneapolis under Muslim rule.”
Those who scoff at such a notion simply aren’t paying attention to recent developments. The Minneapolis City Council two weeks ago voted to abolish the city’s police force. So far, their plans have been sketchy; what's their alternative to the police? If members of the local community end up policing Minneapolis themselves, what might that look like?
Back in 2016, a series of Minneapolis Muslims in man-on-the-street interviews stated matter-of-factly that they preferred Islamic law over American law. We have seen Sharia patrols in Europe, England and even New York City, where the Muslim Community Patrol (MCP) is decked out in uniforms that strong resemble New York Police Dept uniforms driving cars carefully designed to look like NYPD cars, to enforce “fundamentals of the Sharia.”
The New York Times noted “... in the days after the killing of George Floyd, teams made up of dozens of members of the American Indian Movement patrolled streets and directed traffic in the Little Earth housing community in Minneapolis.”
Minneapolis, Congresswoman Ilhan Omar's 5th Congressional District, is the jihad terror recruitment capital of the United States. Stopping young Muslims from engaging in Islamic jihad [warlike] activity is unlikely to be a high priority for them, since Sharia calls upon Muslims to wage war against and subjugate all non-believers [aka infidels aka Kafir!].
The domestic terror group Antifa would have no problem joining forces with the Muslim groups; they already have some Muslim members. Islam historically has never had any difficulty coexisting with authoritarian governments; in fact, it is free republics that have never proved to be compatible with Islamic law.
The unholy alliance of Leftists and Islamic supremacists sees that its moment is now, and is grabbing all it can. How likely is it that Minneapolis really could end up under Islamic rule, with the blessing and cooperation of the hard-Left political leaders [Democrats]?
According to the Minnesota Reformer, another Minnesota state Representative Muslim from Somalia, Mohamud Noor, did not deny the truth of Green’s statements. Instead, when asked about them, he said: "rather than talk about things that inflame people and create division, Minnesota needs to address the challenge before it.” And of course, talk of Antifa/Islamic rule in Minneapolis might “inflame people,” so keep quiet. That is, if you oppose such an eventuality, not if you favor it. Said Noor: “Minnesota is awake. They understand the challenges; they have been hearing the challenges for far too long. And we can’t wait any longer.”
Steve Green may turn out to have been a prophetic voice far sooner than anyone expects. And if any free people who may still be in Minneapolis want to head this off, the time is now to “inflame people not keeping quiet” – not to riot and destroy after the manner of the Left, but to stand up decisively now and stop the power-grab of these insidious totalitarian forces.

I STILL REMEMBER ISRAEL’S Six Day War of 1967
God said, "I will bless them that bless thee [Israel] and curse him that curseth thee: and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed."
6-5-20, * -- I am an old man; my once brown hair has turned white, my once keen eyesight is now very dim and my once good hearing is now slowly becoming less and less good. However, the Lord has graciously retained for me my intellect and a keen memory. I remember well that on May 14, 1948 when – once again - the Jewish state of Israel became a nation. And on this particular date, June 5, 2020 I remember Israel’s ‘Six Day War’  June 5, 1967 to June 10, 1967.
The drums of war in the Middle East had been beating since the Suez Canal crisis  in 1956. The ruler of Egypt, Gamal Nasser made no secret of his extreme hatred for Israel and the Jewish people; he publicly stated over and over that it was his intention to destroy them. So in 1967 he succeeded in assembling a military coalition of Muslim nations to eradicate Israel - the armies were: Egypt, Syria, Jordan, Iraq & Lebanon. 
Nasser was an ignorant arrogant man; while the Muslim armies assembled on the eastern and southern borders of Israel, he proclaimed [maybe God's strong delusion? 2 Thess 2:11-12] that on June 6, 1967 he would launch the coalition attack against Israel. However, Israel wasn’t sitting around waiting for their attack; so on June 5, 1967 before daylight at 5:30 am Israel’s airplanes struck first. They bombed the Egyptian military air base destroying all but one of Egypt's planes. Simultaneously, Israel's army invaded both Jordan and Syria. In short order the Jewish state of Israel won every battle causing the coalition forces to be in full retreat.
The enemies' tanks had to - in single file - retreat through the only passage from Egypt to Israel - in 1967 the very narrow ‘Mitla Pass.’  Surviving Egyptian tank drivers adamantly stated that as they approached the pass a gigantic figure of MOSES was standing in the sky above the pass directing the Israeli planes to bomb and strafe the tanks. [Reference needed] When the tank drivers saw what was happening many of them abandoned their tanks running off into the desert screaming and pleading to their false god "Allah" for mercy. How did those heathen Egyptians know that it was Moses? It must have been impressed upon their minds by the true God of Israel.
Today is June 5, 2020 the 53rd anniversary of the beginning of that Six Day War; it's the day that commemorates the beginning of that great victory God gave to His chosen people. Perhaps (?) before these next six days are completed, the Lord God may likewise call resurrecting and rapturing His born again [John 3:3, 7] believers in Christ to Himself. Any day is the correct day for the Lord's call ...
“The Lord’s name shall endure forever: His name shall be continued as long as the sun: and men shall be blessed in Him: all nations shall call Him blessed. Blessed be the LORD God, the God of Israel, Who only doeth wondrous things."

Israel's Muslims: In Gaza Dwell Islamic Terrorists Called 'Palestinians' Who Slaughter Innocent Civilian Jews - American's too: US Court Finds Iran & Syria Culpable
US Court Orders Iran, Syria Liable
6-2-20, JERUSALEM (AP) — Judge Randolph D. Moss in U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia USA ruled that seven Americans wounded or killed in attacks carried out by Israel's Muslims aka "Palestinians" and Iran and Syria were culpable; must pay damages because they provided “material support” to militant terrorist Muslim groups Hamas and Palestinian Islamic Jihad.
Syria, Iran and the Iranian Ministry of Information of Security, all named as defendants in the civil case, did not take part in the proceedings. Collecting the damages will be problematic since Iran and the U.S. have no formal diplomatic relations. In the past, American courts have ordered the government of Iran to pay hundreds of millions of dollars in damages to families of Americans killed by Palestinian militants without collection.

Israel: Muslims [aka Palestinians] Killed Seven Americans in Israel Since 2015
3-9-16, NYTimes -- Since 2015 in Israel Islamic terrorists aka Palestinians [Hamas & Palestinian Jihad groups] killed the following Americans:
Even so, come, Lord Jesus.
5-14-1948, ADL.org -- Following the defeat of the Ottoman [Islamic] Empire in World War I, the British assumed control of Palestine. In November 1917, the British government issued the Balfour Declaration, announcing its intention to facilitate the "establishment in Palestine of a national home for the Jewish people."
In 1922, the League of Nations [since 1942 "United Nations"] granted Britain a mandate over Palestine facilitating Jewish immigration and encouraging Jewish settlement on the land.
In 1936 the Arabs [Muslims] were opposed to the Jewish people returning back to their historical homeland and stepped up their attacks against the Jews. Following an increase in Arab attacks, the British appointed a royal commission to investigate the Palestine situation. The Peel Commission recommended the partition of the country between Arabs and Jews. The Arabs rejected it while the Jews accepted the principle of partition.
At the end of World War II, in 1945, the British persisted in their immigration restrictions and Jewish survivors of the Holocaust were violently turned away from their homeland while Jews continued to be smuggled in. The British concluded that they could no longer manage Palestine and handed the issue over to the United Nations.
On November 29, 1947, after much debate and discussion, the UN recommended the partition of Palestine into two states one Jewish and one Arab. The Jews accepted the UN resolution while the Arabs rejected it. [...] The British mandate over Palestine officially terminated at midnight, May 14, 1948.
Israel's first Prime Minister David Ben-Gurion proclaimed the re-creation of the State of Israel. On May 15, 1948 the USA, under Democrat Pres Truman, recognized the State of Israel and soon after also the Soviet Union.
5-13-20, ForeignPolicy.com -- U.S. Sec of State Mike Pompeo in Israel ... he said the visit was to discuss President Trump administration’s Israeli-Palestinian peace plan face-to-face. “I want to bring them [Netanyahu and Gantz] up to speed on the progress we think we are making on President Trump’s Vision for Peace.” The most pressing issue affecting that peace plan is the impending annexation of the West Bank, which could be up for a vote in Israel’s Knesset as soon as July 1, 2020. Critics say the trip is little more than a chance to bestow the United States’ blessing on such a move.
Israeli Sovereignty, Not Appeasement,
Is the Key to Lasting Peace
5-17-20, Newsweek, Caroline Glick -- In the coming months, Israel is expected to apply its civilian law and administration to the 30 percent of Judea and Samaria (or the "West Bank") that President Donald Trump's recently unveiled peace plan anticipates remaining with Israel after a final peace agreement. One might expect that Israel's plan would be hailed for advancing peace and the equal rights of Israelis and Palestinians alike. But the more common response of many so-called experts has been to distort the facts and preemptively condemn Israel. The distortions begin with the very words used to describe Israeli plans. Across platforms, "experts" fret over what they call "Israeli annexation" of Judaea and Samaria [aka West Bank]. The state of Israel has sovereign rights to Judea and Samaria [annexation would be taking land from another nation] because of its declaration of independence May 14, 1948; 72 years ago; together with Britain's surrender of the Mandate it had been granted by the League of Nations to reconstitute the ancient Jewish national home, Israel became the one and only state that acquired sovereignty over all the Mandate's territory.
Saudi Arabia Doesn't Care About Jerusalem
Saudi crown prince: 'Palestinians must accept peace with Israel'
4-30-18, Alaraby.co.uk -- Saudi Arabia's Crown Prince reportedly recently said that the Islamic people in Israel called "Palestinians" should accept a peace deal with Israel or "shut up."
Saudi Arabia turned against Palestinians in Israel
3-17-20, MiddleEastEye.net -- With Riyadh Saudi Arabia backing the US Israel-Palestine peace deal, it aims to overcome any obstacles in its path - by putting Islamic terror group Hamas supporters on trial. [..] At the same time, Hamas leader Ismail Haniyeh has hastened to cement its relations with Saudi Arabia’s perceived enemies in the region Iran, Qatar and Turkey.
Liberal Jewish Opposition to Israel’s Sovereignty is Cowardly The Saudis stopped hating Israel.
Wouldn’t it be nice if liberal Jews did too?
5-20-20, FrontPage, Daniel Greenfield -- The House of Saud, the oldest enemies of an independent free Jewish state, have at least temporarily, abandoned their project to destroy it by replacing it with the Islamic terrorist colony of ‘Palestine’. It’s a sad day when Wahhabi Islam shows more aptitude for setting aside its fanaticism and adapting to reality than the alphabet soup organizations that have been running the liberal Jewish community into the ground for over a hundred years. [..] Their weapons are terminology. They call applying Israeli sovereignty “annexation” and refer to cities like Ma’ale Adumim as “settlements” - Judaea & Samaria as 'West Bank'. These walls of words have enraptured policymakers and NPR listeners for generations while completely ignoring the physical realities of life for Jews and Muslims. [..]
Mahmoud Abbas, the 84-year-old dictator of the Palestinian Authority has refused to negotiate with the Trump administration, and also Obama administration. However, his predecessor, Yasser Arafat in the 1990-2000s sabotaged peace negotiations during the Bush and Clinton administrations. History and common sense say his successors will do the same thing. [..] The Arab petrocracies are worried enough about Iran that they’re making common cause with Israel. And President Trump is the most pro-Israel president in history. [..]
In the real world, Democrats and Republicans are tired of being asked about the Middle East peace process; it’s burned every president who touched it. European governments cynically never cared about it, but ritually bash Israel to appease their Arab trading partners and domestic Muslim populations.
The Arabs hoped to use the ‘Palestinian’ hoax to destroy Israel, only to realize that they need Israel to take on Iran.
There’s nothing else to wait for except the coming of the messiah...
WHEN IS THE ACCEPTABLE YEAR OF THE LORD?
The Lord Jesus said: The Spirit of the Lord is upon Me, because He hath anointed Me to preach the gospel and to heal; preaching deliverance to captives… and to preach the acceptable year of the Lord. The Lord speaking to Apostle Paul: “I have heard thee in a time accepted and in the day of salvation have I succoured [aided] thee: behold, now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation."
5-15-20, Bruce Warner* -- The acceptable year of the Lord and the Day of Salvation [Luke 4:18-19; 2 Corinthians 6:2], is when God will preserve and redeem His repentant born again believers in Christ. It is the Day of the Rapture of the Church. That momentous event will happen at a time accepted by the Lord, during the acceptable year of the Lord when His vengeance will occur; it’s spoken of in the following scriptures:
- Isaiah 61:1-2 “The Spirit of the Lord GOD is upon Me; because the LORD hath anointed Me to preach good tidings unto the meek; He hath sent Me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to them that are bound; To proclaim the acceptable year of the LORD, and the day of vengeance of our God; to comfort all that mourn.”
- Isaiah 63:1-6 The Lord said: “I have trodden the winepress alone; and of the people there was none with Me: for I will tread them in Mine anger, trample them in My fury; their blood shall be sprinkled upon My garment and I will stain all My raiment. For the day of vengeance is in Mine heart and the year of My redeemed is come. And I looked, and there was none to help; and I wondered that there was none to uphold: therefore Mine own arm brought salvation unto Me; and My fury, it upheld Me. I will tread down the people in Mine anger, make them drunk in My fury and I will bring down their strength to the earth."
Ezekiel 38:14-16 The Lord said: "Prophesy and say unto Gog: “Thus saith the Lord GOD; in that day when My people of Israel dwelleth safely, shalt thou not know it? And thou shalt come from thy place out of the north parts, many people with thee, all of them riding upon horses, a great company and a mighty army: Thou shalt come up against My people of Israel, as a cloud to cover the land; it shall be in the latter days, and I will bring thee against My land, that the heathen may know Me, when I shall be sanctified in thee, O Gog, before their eyes.”
Our redemption is near [James 5:7-8]; it is my understanding that God will not remove [aka rapture] His church before Jesus has His vengeance upon Israel by using the Gog Army [Ezekiel 38:1-6.] [Note: The enemy army: Islamic coalition of nations from Turkey. – Annette]
Even so, come Lord Jesus!

US President Trump Exposes Great Disparity Between Religions Christianity & Judaism Bad, But Islam Good??
The very visible disparity of having Islamic mosques open for Ramadan during COVID-19 while Christian Pastors are arrested and congregations raided by police for sitting in their cars for church services. How can it be denied? The disparity is far reaching in schools, indoctrination emanating from media, Hollywood and Democrat leaders. Hence, the inexplicable admiration and sympathy for Islam while an inexplicable contempt for Christianity and Judaism should not be ignored.
Many Muslims and their American allies/dupes lambasted Pres Trump for his accurate observations. The terrorist-linked Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) did what it does best--accusing the President and his administration of being “insulting … Islamophobic, white supremacist and racist.”
Meanwhile, back in the real word, the concerns President Trump raised—particularly of the “great disparity” in how Islam is treated on the one hand and how Judaism and Christianity on the other— have been validated over and over again, and often in more insidious ways.
5-6-20, * --Islam’s annual fasting days of Ramadan is here where Muslims celebrate Mohammad. Recently Pres Trump at a press briefing was asked why he retweeted Paul Sperry’s comment: “Let's see if authorities enforce the social-distancing orders for mosques during Ramadan (April 23-May 23) like they did churches during Christian's Resurrection Sunday aka Easter."
Trump said: “I would like to see that…. I would say there could be a difference. But we’ll have to see what will happen. Because I’ve seen a great disparity in this country; I’ve seen a great disparity. I mean, I’ve seen a very strong anti-Israel bent in Congress with Democrats…. The things they say about Israel are so bad, and I can’t believe it. So I would be interested to see that, because they go after Christian churches, but they don’t tend to go after mosques. And I don’t want to see them go after mosques, but I do want to see what their bent is…. Our politicians seem to treat different faiths very differently; and they seem to think—I don’t know what happened to our country—but the Christian faith is treated much differently than it was, and I think it’s treated very unfairly.”
Not only was the mosque in New York [the virus epicenter] open – Mayor deBlasio served them 500,000 free meals.
In August 2019 a program of the Consortium for Middle East Studies (CMES), a program run by Duke University and the University of North Carolina, hosted what was described as a “Three-Day Anti-Israel Hate-Fest,” -->
<-- the U.S. Dept. of Education warned it in a letter to stop misusing federal grants by advancing “ideological priorities.”
The report on the program accused the consortium of “lack[ing] balance as it offers very few, if any, programs focused on the historic discrimination faced by, and current circumstances of, religious minorities in the Middle East, including Christians, Jews, Baha’is, Yadizis, Kurds, Druze and others.” Instead, “there is a considerable emphasis placed on understanding the positive aspects of Islam, while there is an absolute absence of any similar focus on the positive aspects of Christianity, Judaism, or any other religion or belief system in the Middle East. This lack of balance of perspectives is troubling…”
This double standard isn't limited to higher education; basic indoctrination begins in public schools. For example, 11th grade Christian student, Caleigh Wood in a Maryland high school received a failing grade because she refused to compromise her faith by making a written profession of the Muslim creed or shahada—“There is no god but Allah and Muhammad is the messenger of Allah”--which formally converts its reciters to Islam.
School officials denied her father’s request that she be allowed to be given an alternative assignment. Moreover, Carleigh was forced to view a series of pro-Islamic PowerPoint slides that included the following statements: “Most Muslims’ faith is stronger than the average Christian.”
In Florida and Louisiana Pastor's have been arrested for holding church services. Mississippi congregation raided as they sit in cars for church service.
Richard Thompson, president and chief counsel of the Law Center petitioned the Supreme Court to review the case - Thompson, echoed Trump:
“I’m not aware of any public school which has forced a Muslim student to write the Lord’s Prayer or John 3:16: “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” Yet, under the pretext of teaching history or social studies, public schools across America are promoting the religion of Islam in ways that would never be tolerated for Christianity or any other religion. It’s disappointing that the Supreme Court did not take this opportunity to clarify the test which lower courts should use when ruling on establishment clause and free speech challenges to public school classes on religion….Many public schools have become hot beds of Islamic propaganda. Teaching Islam in schools has gone far beyond a basic history lesson. Prompted by zealous Islamic activism and emboldened by confusing court decisions, schools are now bending over backwards to promote Islam while at the same time denigrating Christianity.” The high court declined.
In short, Trump is right: there is “a great disparity in this country”; there is “a very strong anti-Israel bent”; and “the Christian faith” is “treated very unfairly” while Islam is whitewashed and promoted its victims are ignored.

Reports of Israel Air Strikes in Southern Syria
Wars Between Israel and Syria: From 1948 to the Present 
TheHistoryGuy.com -- Beginning in 2010 [Obama US Pres], tensions between Syria and Israel are again rising, with Israel accusing Syria of transferring powerful Scud missiles to the Islamic terror group Hezbollah militia in Lebanon. The possible ramifications of this development could lead to a new Israel-Syria war.
Syria says Israeli helicopters strike targets in Southern Syria
5-1-20, Devdiscourse.com -- Today, May 1, 2020 in Israel, Syrian state media reported that Israeli helicopters fired several rockets from the Israeli-occupied Golan Heights on targets inside southern Syria in what Western intelligence sources have described as an increase in strikes against Iranian-backed militias this year. According to state media bases and convoys run by Lebanon's Iranian-backed Islamic terror group Hezbollah, the attacks caused only material damage. [..] Israel says Iran's military presence in Syria, where its militias are fighting alongside Syrian President Bashar al Assad's forces, is a strategic threat and claims that Tehran seeks a permanent presence along its northern borders.
2-28-20, Haaretz -- Syria's official news agency SANA reported that recently Israeli struck Syrian military positions in the Quneitra province in the Golan Heights wounding three Syrian soldiers. There was no immediate comment from Israel.
However, in a rare acknowledgment of operations in neighboring Syria, Israel said that its warplanes struck Islamic Jihad targets south of Damascus, in addition to sites in the Gaza Strip. The strike came after Islamic Jihad fired a barrage of more than 20 rockets into southern Israel in response to the death of one of its operatives, who was shot by Israeli forces after they said he was laying an explosive charge near the Gaza border fence.
Early in February 2020 SANA reported that Syrian air defense systems were activated following a strike near the Damascus Airport that came from the Golan Heights. The Al-Hadath news channel reported that seven militants were killed in the attack targeting Iranian-backed militias.
Syrian state TV reported that an Israeli drone fired a missile at a car in southern Syria, killing one person whom it named as a "civilian." Several other media outlets aligned with Syrian President Bashar Assad's regime said that the man was a local policeman. Local media reports have identified the man as Imad Tawil, a senior Islamic terror group - Hezbollah - official aiding Iran's efforts to secure a foothold on the Golan Heights.
Remembering a Fateful Islamic Siege of Christian City “Constantinople”
[aka Istanbul] in 1453 A.D.
In 330 A.D., Constantinople became the site of Roman Emperor Constantine’s “New Rome,” a Christian city of immense wealth and magnificent architecture. Constantinople stood as the seat of the Byzantine Empire for 1,100 years, enduring periods of great fortune - until 1453 AD when attacked by Muslim invaders.
A Catholic prelate who was present wrote: The “Sultan swore … that his warriors would be granted the right to sack everything, to take everyone, male or female, all property or treasure which was in the city; and that under no circumstances would he break his oath. He asked nothing for himself, except the buildings and walls of the city; all the rest, the booty and the captives, would be theirs. Muhammad’s announcement was received with great joy from thousands of throats came waves of thundering cries of 'Allahu Akbar!' and 'There is no god but Allah and Muhammad is his prophet'!”
A Christian behind the wall related: “Oh! If you had heard their voices raised to heaven, you would have been struck dumb with amazement… We … were amazed at such religious fervor and begged God with copious tears to be well disposed towards us."
All this most terrible shouting echoed another eyewitness: “...was heard as far as the coast of Anatolia twelve miles away and we Christians were very fearful.”
One modern historian records: "Atonement, ablutions, prayers and fasting, “under penalty of death,” were ordered for the Ottoman camp the previous day. Fanatics of all sorts were set loose to inspire the men to jihad. Wandering dervishes visited the tents, to instill the desire of martyrdom, the assurance of spending an immortal youth amidst the rivers and gardens of paradise and in the embraces of the black-eyed virgins.”
Criers swept throughout the camp to horn blasts:
“Children of Muhammad, be of good heart, for tomorrow we shall have so many Christians in our hands that we will sell them, two slaves for a ducat, and will have such riches that we will all be of gold, and from the beards of the Greeks we will make leads for our dogs, and their families will be our slaves. So be of good heart and be ready to die cheerfully for the love of our [past and present] Muhammad.”
Finally, appx 2 am on Sunday, May 29, 1453 AD Muhammad unleashed all hell against Constantinople: to blasting sounds of trumpets, cymbals and Islamic war-cries - cannon fire lit the horizon as ball after ball came careening into the wall. Adding to the pandemonium rang church bells and alarms. After the initial wave of cannon fire, the sultan implemented his strategy: he told his generals: “to engage successively and without halt one body of fresh troops after the other, until harassed and worn out the enemy will be unable further to resist.”
On and on, wave after wave, the hordes came, all desirous of booty or paradise. With ladders and hooks, they fought, clawed and clambered onto the wall.
Eyewitnesses recollected: “Who could narrate the voices, the cries of the wounded and the lamentation that arose on both sides? The shouts and din went beyond the boundaries of heaven.”
An eyewitness offers a snapshot:
“[The defenders] fought bravely with lances, axes, pikes, javelins and other weapons of offense. It was a hand-to-hand encounter; they stopped the attackers and prevented them from getting inside the palisade. There was much shouting on both sides—the mingled sounds of blasphemy, insults, threats, attackers, defenders, shooters, those shot at, killers and dying, of those who in anger and wrath did all sorts of terrible things. And it was a sight to see there: a hard fight going on hand-to-hand -->
<-- with great determination and for the greatest rewards, heroes fighting valiantly, the one party [Ottomans] struggling with all their might to force back the defenders, get possession of the wall, enter the city, and fall upon the children and women and the treasures, the other party bravely agonizing to drive them off and guard their possessions, even if they were not to succeed in prevailing and in keeping them. But it was too late; the Muslim army prevailed and a bloodbath of the citizens of Constantinople—many of whom were sadistically tortured, raped and slaughtered—followed."
A contemporary observed the city started with Constantine [the Great], who in 325 AD founded Constantinople, as a Christian “New Rome” and it ended with Constantine XI, who died defending it. Constantine XI ruled Constantinople for appx 4 years. His reign culminating in the Islamic Ottoman siege of a Muslim army numbering appx 10 times theirs and died in the ensuing fighting, May 29, 1453 AD. Following his death, he became a legendary figure in Greek folklore as the Marmaromenos Vasilias, the "Marble Emperor" who would awaken and recover the Empire and Constantinople from the Ottomans.
His death marked the end of the Roman Empire East as the Byzantine Empire for 977 years after the fall of the Western Roman Empire in 476. The Empire had begun with the reign of Augustus in 27 BC, previously 1,479 years. More here

UPDATE: 3/21/20, While the Turkish government has closed its border to Greece due to the Coronavirus, migrants are still attempting to storm the border using improvised ladders.
Footage of mostly angry Muslim men along the Greek border near the Evros river showed them building makeshift ladders using tree trunks and tree branches in order to scale the Greek border fence, which has largely kept out the large numbers of migrants who have assembled in the area.
When the Turkish forces began throwing tear gas toward the Greek border, the Greeks counter measure was to deploying large oscillating fans in the area to blow the gas back at them. Following Turkish president Recep Tayyip Erdogan’s move to open the border to Europe in late February, 2020, Greek authorities have said that over 50,000 migrants attempted to break into Greece, with 410 being arrested.
