World Woeful Events:
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.
<-- The video footage of the migrants circulating on social media was sourced to a report by Greek media outlet Proto Thema, which in turn stated that Turkish media had first published the recordings. More here
The Times of UK -- On 3/9/20 President Erdogan of Turkey in Brussels demanded hundreds of millions of euros from the EU in exchange for stopping the flood of Islamic migrants gathering at the frontiers of Greece, as he heads to Brussels for showdown talks. European leaders are under pressure to salvage a deal keeping as many as four million displaced people within Turkey’s borders, but are reluctant to give in to what EU diplomats have described as blackmail.

The Euphrates’ problems begin more than 1,000 miles upstream, near the river’s catchment area below the Taurus Mountains in eastern Turkey. In a headlong rush to generate electricity and create arable land, the Turkish government has been on a dam-building boom for two generations. In 1974 the Keban Dam was opened on the Upper Euphrates. The Ataturk Dam was finished in 1990. The ongoing Southeastern Anatolia Project, a $32 billion scheme to build 22 dams and 19 hydroelectric plants on both the Tigris and the Euphrates, will eventually provide nearly one-quarter of Turkey’s electricity. Syria, meanwhile, built the Tabqa Dam upstream from Raqqa in the 1970s, and added a few more dams on the Euphrates and its tributaries before the civil war ground development to a halt. Since the Turkish and Syrian dams began operating in the 1970s, the water flow into Iraq has dropped by nearly two-thirds. [..snip] Sadly because of so much war little has been done for the government to swing into action. The Euphrates needs good management, legislation and enforcement a third party, like the USA to help drag Turkey and Syria to the bargaining table to work out a deal for equitable distribution of upstream water. Without this some believe the Euphrates will soon be reduced to a barren, dusty riverbed, and the countless Iraqis who depend on it will find their very survival jeopardized.

Turkey Blocks Water to Syria via Euphrates River Dams
3-24-20, Persecution Today – Recently Turkish sponsored armed groups have cut the water supply that provides water to 460,000 people living in Syria’s Hasakah province. The ancestors of many in the Syrian area are those who survived the genocide of Turkey’s predecessor, the Ottoman Empire. Local officials say Turkey & Russia had brokered a deal only four months ago which was supposed to guarantee drinking water in exchange for a power supply. Turkey’s actions in this area have repeatedly come under fire as a type of genocide against minorities who fail to conform to the government’s definition of Turkishness and Islam. By expanding its influence into Syria, Turkey further complicates an environment that has steadily pushed Christians out of the country. More here
Erdogan calls on Muslim countries to unite and confront Israel
5-18-18, Aljazeera.com -- Turkey President Tayyip Erdogan calls on Muslim countries to unite and confront Israel. Turkish president tells OIC leaders that Israel must be held accountable for the killing of Palestinians in Gaza Strip.
Erdogan's Vision: Uniting an 'Army of Islam'
3-13-18, CBN.com -- JERUSALEM, Israel - An article in a Turkish paper with close ties to Turkey's President Recep Tayyip Erdogan exposes the regime's desire to form an "Army of Islam" to attack and destroy the Jewish state of Israel ...
"Army of Islam": Erdogan's Plot Against Israel
3-28-18, TheGlobalist.com -- Turkey's “A Call for Urgent Action” published in the newspaper’s website with the more explicit title, “What if an Army of Islam was Formed Against Israel?” The article openly called on the 57 member states of the OIC to form a joint “Army of Islam” to simultaneously attack Israel from the east, west, north, and south. According to Israel’s Shin Bet, among other sinister plots Turkey is aiding the Gaza based Islamic terror group Hamas with funds and military gear to create a “Palestinian” army to join in the fight against Israel. The idea of creating an “Army of Islam” to destroy Israel was accompanied by an interactive map providing formation of military forces for a joint Muslim attack on Israel. It also provides details on military forces based in various locations and the role they can play to execute their scheme. Erdogan has long proclaimed that Turkey is the leading Islamist state and he is the Caliphate of the born again Ottoman Empire. To promote its revival and his ambition to become the leader of the Muslim world, Erdogan exploits Islam as the common cause around which all Muslim states can rally. [..]Since the publication of Turkey's outrageous plan, not a single U.S. or EU official has condemned it.
The United States and the EU must demand that Erdogan disassociate himself from the ideas reported by Yeni Şafak and reject it in the strongest terms. Moreover, the United States should put Erdogan on notice that further promulgation of his Ottoman revivalist ideology will be dealt with as a threat to the United States’ and the EU’s strategic interests and will bear severe consequences.
The Beast is alive again ... Revelation 13:3, 12
Europe Under Siege: Islamic Barbarians Storming Gates
The beast of Islam was dead; Ottomans killed off in 632 AD and 1683 AD is alive again while in 2020 military aged Muslim men invade Europe
"The beast exerciseth all the power of the first beast before him, and causeth the earth and them which dwell therein to worship the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed."
3-10-20, FrontPage* -- Charles Martel of France in 732 AD has been lauded as a champion of Christianity as he turned back the horde of Islamic invaders in the Battle of Tours** in the struggle against Islam. According to modern military historian, Victor Davis Hanson "most of the 18th and 19th century historians like [Edward] Gibbon saw Poitiers (Tours) as a landmark battle that marked the high tide of the Muslim advance into Europe."
In 1683 a massive army of the Ottoman Empire laid siege to the Christian city of Vienna***. After two months, an allied force that consisted of men from all over the Holy Roman Empire turned the Ottoman soldiers back, preventing the potential Islamization of the continent.
In recent days, Recep Tayyip Erdogan, president of the new 'born again' Ottoman Empire’s successor state, Turkey, has unleashed thousands of Muslims, mostly young males of military age, upon the European Union in violation of an agreement with the EU that netted him billions. He has allowed – and encouraged – these people, who have been routinely described in the Western media as “refugees” and “migrants;” it’s called Hirjah – war by migration:
Currently in 2020 seems like old times with the Muslim hordes invading foreign nations. However different this time; whereas seventh and seventeenth-century Europeans understood that they were confronting Islamic invaders. Knowing they were an existential threat to their way of life - however, in today’s world many of the liberal deluded leaders are accepting them at the detriment of their own citizens.
- Swedish Center Party has called on Europeans to “Open your hearts – and your borders.”
- A Feminist Initiative in a show of goodwill apparently has decided to overlook the tendency of Muslim males to treat all women like sex dolls raping at will with little prosecution.
- German chancellor Angela Merkel has allowed tens of thousands Muslims into her nation who were said to be Syrian refugees. Ultimately the overwhelming fact was revealed that the majority of the “migrants” were not Syrian families fleeing war; but young males of military age - Islamic men from all over the Muslim world. [..snip]
Currently, 3-10-20 the Greek government, it’s doing its best to push back the Islamic barbarians at its gates having little choice as Greece is an economic “basket case” and has already been overrun with more Muslims than it can ever hope to handle as it’s become a “refugee warehouse” in which the citizens of some Greek islands are outnumbered by the needy and raucous Muslim newcomers. Nonetheless, Greece has been ravaged by many world leaders for trying to save itself:
- Amnesty International has accused Greece of violating EU and international law by putting an emergency one-month hold on accepting new asylum applications.
- The UN High Commissioner said Greece is in breach of the 1951 Convention Relating to the Status of Refugees.
- Human Rights Watch (HRW), maintaining that there’s “no legal basis or justification” for Greece’s stance
- Edouard Rodier of the Norwegian Refugee Council has urged European countries to take in the Muslims.
- what responsibility do those governments have to their own citizens?
- what rights do the taxpayers of Europe have? Do they deserve the “compassion” to which HRW refers?
- Why should the “dignity and humanity” of Muslims from other continents trump the “dignity and humanity” of native Europeans?
- At what point in this decades-long Islamic migrant tsunami be acceptable for the people of Europe to say “enough” without being called bigots?
If this is true, it’ll mark a turning point that people from pretty much the same places whose inhabitants defended Tours** in 632 AD and Vienna*** in 1683 are standing with Greece in the year 2020.
Islam is not a religion it is a warring anti-Christ [1 John 2:18; 22, 4:3; 2 John 1:7] coalition "Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshiped; so that he as God [allah] sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God." 2 Thessalonians 2:4
Consider the Islamic Dome of the Rock sitting where it ought not on God's Temple Mount in Jerusalem. Mark 13:14

Are the Palestinians urging peace dialogue with Israel heroes or traitors?
2-21-20. JPost -- Why is the PLO [Palestinians] overseeing a committee responsible for engagement with Israelis? Where are Palestinian nongovernmental organizations that are supposed to be promoting peace and coexistence with Israel? [..] Palestinian officials publicly condemn Arab states for normalizing their ties with Israel while the same officials are engaged in meeting with Israelis to promote peace. [..] Even if the current controversy over normalization with Israel subsides, it’s clear that the smear campaign against those Palestinians who still believe in promoting dialogue with Israelis has succeeded in deterring others from engaging in future “peace” encounters.
Israel’s ‘radical’ critics in U.S. have ‘taken political spotlight’ and increased ‘risks for war’ — AIPAC head
3-2-20, Mondoweiss -- Rightfully many support Israel’s right to exist; but that’s not up for debate– Israel exists! Recently head of the Israel lobby group AIPAC sounded “an alarm” about Israel’s political enemies in the USA taking “the spotlight” in politics. AIPAC ceo, Howard Kohr said that a “radical” movement to end the U.S. special relationship to Israel has “national ambitions” to undermine the bipartisan consensus in favor of Israel. Kohr targeted Bernie Sanders and his surrogates who have criticized Israel, such as Muslim American Linda Sarsour and the ex NY bartender turned Congresswoman Democrat Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.
3-7-20, Haaretz -- While Prime MInister Benjamin Netanyahu's explained how he won despite the fact that his party came in second place. The numbers are quite simple. All the parties running in this 3rd election made Netanyahu-related commitments. Those who supported him won 2.2 million votes; those who swore never to sit with the man won 2.33 million. In other words, in the referendum on his rule, which was the main foundation of the election (as in the previous ones), he emerged the loser. Netanyahu’s famous whiteboard is erasable, but the votes of Israeli citizens are not. [Note: very complicated more here]
Standing up to Turkey: Austria’s chancellor is the only EU leader prepared to call out Turkey's President Erdogan over weaponizing migrants to EU
While Brussels has taken its eye off the ball, Austrian Chancellor Sebastian Kurz was paying attention and rightly accused President Recep Tayyip Erdogan as weaponizing thousands of Syrians it's “an attack on the EU.”
In 2016, the EU naïvely entered into a pact with the populist Erdogan to stem what at the time was a rising tide of Syrians by offering €6 billion [$6.7 billion] to help deal with the crisis.
With around 3.7 million refugees from Syria, Afghanistan and other countries now in Turkey, that money was never going to be enough, and when the time came that Erdogan wanted leverage over the EU, he was always going to threaten to turn the migration tap on again.
Which is exactly what he has done.
Though Chancellor Kurz has come down hard on the threat, and no doubt scored some much-needed political points by doing so, you have to wonder where the outrage from Brussels is.
Greece is angered over Turkey’s actions, and the horror of images featuring dead children drowned after falling from boats and coastguards shooting at jam-packed refugee dinghies will only increase the temperature of this mess.
It’s not as if we haven’t been here before. The frontline states in this ongoing saga, Greece, Italy and Spain, extended the offer of help to the war-torn countries of the region to the south on the belief that the EU would come up with a common immigration policy that would share the burden equitably among the bloc’s member states.
But we’re still waiting for this to materialize.
What Erdogan wants instead, when Greece and Italy decided to take matters into their own hands, trying to turn back the people smugglers and their desperate passengers, there is outcry from the liberal democracies over alleged human rights abuses.
So suddenly, these two EU member states find themselves as the bad guys.
Turkey has a point. It did the EU a massive favor in taking in millions of Syrians fleeing a war zone, but the bill it has racked up so far of more than US$30 billion is not something they’ll ever recoup. Erdogan is resigned to that, and it means he can take the moral high ground refusing a paltry offer of a further €1bn from the EU with a sniffy, “Who are you trying to fool? We don’t want this money.”
The days of Turkey courting Western leaders and hoping to join the European Union seem a long way off under Erdogan. If he is trying to convince the EU leaders to help him over Syrian refugees then threatening them is not the smartest move.
In the meantime, the miserable refugees are used as bargaining chips by Erdogan until he can figure a way out of this mire. His hugely optimistic emergency meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin on Thursday, Mar 5, 2020 could hold the key.

Battle of Tours, 732: Muslims vs. Christians
In the years previous, having assessed the situation in Iberia and the Umayyad attack on Aquitaine, Charles Martell came to believe that a professional army, rather than raw conscripts, was needed to defend the realm from invasion.
3-1-20, Daniel Greenfield *-- Abandoning the pretense that the so-called "refugee crisis" is anything more than military colonialism, Turkey's Islamist tyrant, President Tayyip Erdogan has responded to military setbacks during his invasion of Syria by discarding his aid agreement with the EU, while the media under his control urged Muslim migrants to head to Europe ... and they have. The invasion has begun again.
An estimated 30,000 Islamic migrants gathered at border checkpoints after Turkey’s Erdogan claimed to have ‘opened the doors’ to allow as many as 4 million asylum seekers to leave the country. On Feb 29, 2020 tens of thousands of Syrian Islamic refugees massed on the Turkish borders with Greece and Bulgaria, hurling rocks at border guards trying to cut through razor wire. Syrians, Iranians, Iraqis, Pakistanis and Moroccans – demanded admission. The only thing these migrants have in common is their Muslim religion and its tradition of conquest by invasion and colonialism. They're not fleeing a civil war and they're mostly military-age men invading Europe and parts beyond. Obviously Greece and Bulgaria are outmatched and a repeat of history when these countries were the traditional targets of the ancient Islamic Ottoman Empire. [Erdogan believes he is the New Sultan Caliphate of the revived Ottomans]
If there's a role for NATO, it's not in Syria; it's protecting Europe from this Islamist invasion. NATO member  Turkey's President Erdogan insists he will not back down that his country could not handle another wave of refugees from northern Syria. ‘We opened the doors. We will not close those doors. Why? Because the EU should keep its promises.’
Syria doesn't have much of a functioning military so Turkey is actually fighting Russia, Iran and its proxies. It's Jihadist vs. Jihadist [Sunni Muslims vs Shiite Muslims] and they're welcome to fight each other Alien vs. Predator style. Turkey wants European and American help; and it's using this invasion as overt blackmail.
There needs to be a naval blockade to stop the invasion. These migrant invasions are WW3 in slow motion. And they can be stopped with little danger at Europe's borders. If they get inside, then we end up moving closer to days when a European version of ISIS is in control of Europe's arsenal and resources.

Turkey President Tayyip Erdogan Gives "Final Warning" Before Launching Gog-Magog War Against "Edom" Russia
Apostle John's vision: "The sixth angel poured out his vial upon the great river Euphrates; and the water thereof was dried up, that the way of the kings of the east [Shiite Muslims from Iran] might be prepared. And I saw three unclean spirits like frogs come out of the mouth of the dragon, and out of the mouth of the beast [Coalition of Islamic nations], and out of the mouth of the false prophet [Mohammad]. For they are the spirits of devils, working miracles, which go forth unto the kings of the earth and of the whole world, to gather them to the battle of that great day of God Almighty. Behold, I come as a thief. Blessed is he that watcheth... And he gathered them together into a place called in the Hebrew tongue 'Armageddon'."
Turkey has threatened to launch an “imminent” operation in Syria’s Idlib Province if Damascus fails to withdraw behind Ankara’s military positions, sparking a warning from Russia. Turkey in bible prophecy Magog is a man who settled in the land of Turkey. Ezekiel 38:2 More here
- 2-20-20, Breaking Israel News -- After failed talks with Russian officials over the intensifying military conflict in Syria, Turkey’s President Recep Tayyib Erdogan issued his “final warnings” to Moscow. Turkish troops with heavy weapons entered northern Idlib Syria while Turkish artillery shelled Syrian army positions. The Russian air force came to the aid of the Syrian army, bombing Turkish positions. Fifty Syrian soldiers and members of Iranian-backed Shiite [Iran?] militias were killed in the battle and Turkey lost two soldiers. The Turkish military and their Islamist rebel allies also destroyed five tanks and four armored vehicles belonging to the pro-Assad troops. Sixteen Turkish military casualties and 50+ Syrian soldiers were killed in retaliation.

This is totally false! All through history Islam [Muslims] has always been warmongering killers. Peace loving non-Muslims are now deluded as they - with generous hearts - want to help the killers. They blame all sorts of things on the 'reason for their killing.' Remember Obama's gal Marie Harf who said in 2015 they just 'need jobs' others say they need love. Ridiculous.

The beast with seven heads introduced at Revelation 13:1 represents a coalition of Israel enemy Islamic nations. It has authority, power, and a leader called the Caliphate. Erdogan of Turkey has claimed that title. Thus, the wild beast of Revelation 13:2 represents a composite political organization. (Daniel 7:2-8, 17, 23)
2-13-20, * -- Struan Stevenson has laid out a clear-eyed picture of the collapsing Islamic Republic of Iran that is as good as anything you’ll read.
So it’s a civil war within Iran [aka Persia], fought between the different elements of the Islamic ruling classes. Since the spoils of this war will be measured in terms of government posts and bank accounts around the world, it’s a very intense struggle.
Under the leadership of Iran's President Rouhani, the Islamic Shiite Republic has executed more than four thousand persons, including women and children, thereby making it the leading per capita executioner in the world. Contrary to the myth of Rouhani’s “moderation,” he has made Alireza Avaei the Minister of Justice. Avaei has been singled out as a leading terrorist for his role as the killer of political prisoners in 1988, when more than thirty thousand followers of the MEK opposition movement and their friends were slaughtered.
Someone said: "The regime gave them an economy that's plummeting, a government that has invaded every aspect of their lives, [Revelation 13:17] whether that's your private life, your religious rights, your everything. You've had many celebrities defecting... This is a really strong signal to show that people are no longer buying in."
Although the Iranian people protests have been overwhelmingly peaceful, at least two acts of resistance against the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps . The firebombing of the Guards base in Tehran on January 19, 2020 and the following day a similar attack on the Headquarters of State Security Forces in Mashad on Jan. 20, 2020.
The clock is ticking on the Iranian regime. Any one of several factors could throw the country into turmoil. Khamenei is eighty years old, and his death could be a precipitating event.

Israel Peace Plan Analyzed
God Warned About Dividing Israel's Land
- #1 - 'No such thing as a Palestinian people' as such there is no such thing as a state of Palestine [Pastor Farag grew up as a Arab Muslim in Israel being told he was a 'Palestinian' ..] - Israel was named in 70 AD after the Jews enemy the 'Philistines' ergo the name ... appx 1994 Yassar Arafat who was an Egyptian started the entire 'Palestinian thing!' - the nation of Israel was reborn in 1948.
- #2 - the Arabs only want total destruction of the Jews and Israel - they don't want to co-habit in the land.
- #3 - Not only did Yassar Arafat reject Bill Clinton's peace plan of 1998 when the Arabs were offered 75% of Jerusalem they also rejected a state of 'Palestine'
- #4 - one illegitimate claim the Muslims make that Jerusalem's Islamic al-aqsa mosque on Solomon's Temple Mount is their holy site but: [strange that when they pray there they direct their back sides to it.
- #5 - Jerusalem is the true LEGITIMATE capitol of Israel only for the Jewish state of Israel beause almighty God literally deemed it so! In the Book of Genesis, God appeared to Abraham and said: “I will assign this land to your offspring” (Genesis 12:3, 15:18-21; Psalm 122:6) [no where in the Muslim book 'Koran' is Jerusalem mentioned even once - yet it appears over 600 times in the Holy Bible].
End the Hoax:
There Are No Palestinians
The “Palestinian people” is a propaganda fiction.
It’s time to stop playing along.
King Hussein of Jordan put it most succinctly of all in 1981: “The truth is that Jordan is Palestine and Palestine is Jordan.”
Nonetheless, the myth has taken hold, and it is now widely taken for granted, in our age that has little historical memory and scant interest in gaining more, that the Palestinians are a genuine nationality, and are the indigenous people of the land that Israel illegally occupies.
This is a propaganda success that Josef Goebbels and the editors of Pravda would have envied, and it became the foundation for more. Having established the Palestinians as a tiny indigenous people whose land was stolen by rapacious, well-heeled, and oppressive foreigners, it was time to return to the negotiating table – not in order to achieve any genuine accord with Israel, but to exploit the victimhood status of the new tiny people they had invented in order to win valuable concessions from the Israelis.
If all this were recognized, the onus would be on Jordan, Syria, Lebanon and the other Arab states for not welcoming their Palestinian Arab brethren. The contention that the Palestinians are a people who must have a state would lose much of its force. Returning to reality and discarding propaganda fantasies can never have a downside. It’s time to take that step. More here

US President Trump & Israel Prime Minister Netanyahu Unveil Precepts in 'Peace Plan'
Full video about 48 minutes here
See Prime Min Netanyahu at 30 min mark
Today, Tuesday, January 28, 2020 President Donald Trump with Israel's Prime Minister Netanyahu at the White House announced the plan for peace in the Middle East. [Trump met with challenger to Netanyhu's election - Benny Gantz yesterday, 1-27-20]. Proposing that Israel and the region will be safer [skirting complaints that Palestinians have already rejected the proposal and didn’t take part in drafting the plan or were invited to this current event]. The President said this plan:
- Presents a “contiguous” [neighboring - see map below] territory for a Palestinian state once conditions are met
- Demands “rejection of terrorism”
- Opens a “transition” to a two-state solution
- Jerusalem Israel’s “undivided capitol”
- Will have a territory destined for Palestinian control that would go undeveloped for four years to give space for talks with Israel to progress
- Israel is willing to make territorial sacrifices [again land for peace!]
- Palestinians will have twice the land
- $50 billion dollars offered for future self sustaining Palestinian people – stop charity
- No Jews or Muslims would be removed from their homes
- Calls on the Palestinian Authority to:
- adopt “basic laws” on protecting all human rights
- fight corruption
- stop malign activities of Hamas and Islamic Jihad
- end financial compensation to terrorists
- stop incitement against the Jewish People of Israel
- recognize Israel as the official 'Jewish State'
However, even before the plan was released, the proposal was criticized by Palestinians and many Mideast analysts for being biased in Israel’s favor and thus unlikely to end the centuries old conflict. And the notion of an “undivided” Jerusalem will anger Palestinians, who have long sought to make East Jerusalem the capital of their future state.
The plan gives the Palestinians less than they have been offered in previous plans that they rejected, leaving its prospects for success slim. A Palestinian official Secretary-General of the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO) Saeb Erekat has threatened that the Ramallah-based Palestinian Authority would withdraw from key provisions of the Oslo Accords if US President Trump unveils his so-called “Deal of the Century.”
Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas is due to convene Palestinian leaders to discuss the plan after its presentation and to release a statement. His administration has also called for an emergency session of the Arab League in Cairo on Saturday, Feb 1, 2020.

Pres Abbas Met with Pres Trump, 9-21-17:
Pres Trump Invites Israel's PM Netanyahu and Benny Gantz to White House to Unveil Peace Plan, January 28, 2020
But there will be no peace ...
"In those times there was no peace to him that went out, nor to him that came in, but great vexations were upon all the inhabitants of the countries."
1-25-20, ForeignPolicy.com -- On Tuesday, January 28, 2020 the U.S. President Donald Trump is scheduled to host Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and his political rival Benny Gantz at the White House. The purpose of the meeting is to unveil some of the details of the Middle East peace plan. PM Netanyahu and Gantz both have accepted the invitation.
In June 2019 - in Bahrain's Middle East Peace to Prosperity Conference, Jared Kushner, Trump’s son-in-law and a White House adviser, announced the first part of the plan—expanding foreign investment in the Muslim aka "Palestinian" enclaves. The meetings were boycotted by Muslim/Palestinian officials. One of the Muslim leaders in Israel, Mahmoud Abbas and other leaders were not invited as they have refused to discuss the plan since the Jewish city of Jerusalem has been recognized by many nations as Israel’s capitol. The US and others have moved their embassies there; in 2018 the USA was the first.
The Palestinians rebuffed attempts to discuss any peace plan with Israel; they were attempted through European intermediaries and are expected to reject the plan once it becomes public. Jeremiah 6:14; Ezekiel 13:16; Matthew 13:43

And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads."

In 732 AD France Charles Martel Defeated the Hordes of Islam
By 732 AD in northeastern France in October of 732 AD Commander Charles Martel of the Franks, and likely equal in number to the Muslim army fought General Abdul Rahman Al Ghafiqi, who commanded the Umayyad army that had a large amount of cavalry. Charles’ force was well trained and fought with the equipment and close order style that echoed the hoplite formations of the ancient Greeks. He occupied an elevated position and used the trees and rough terrain in front of his infantry to protect them from cavalry charges. Reinforcements arrived for the Muslims, but Charles had arguably better reinforcements. Many of his veterans, who had personally fought under him came in huge numbers. These professional fighting men would have been amongst the best and most experienced in all Europe. Their arrival meant that the main battle was at hand after a week of skirmishing. [..skip]
The Muslims were defeated and the survivors retreated to their camp in the middle of the night, carrying mostly their prized loot. The next morning, Charles was deeply concerned that his enemies were setting up an ambush.
After extensive scouting, it was discovered that the Muslim enemy had fled; forced to withdraw back into Spain. Charles was granted the nickname of Charles “the Hammer” for crushing his enemies and both he and Odo, who had won the first great victory and served at Tours, would be considered heroes of Christianity killing off the beast of hordes of Muslims as they tried to invade Europe.
