I believe there is a great sense of urgency to stand with and support the nation of Israel as never before. There are many factors converging that pose a great threat to Israel's existence. During his recent trip to Cairo, President Obama has gone out of his way to reach out to Islam and alienate both Christians and Jews in America and around the world. What will this mean for the State of Israel as it faces the very real prospect of a nuclear Iran?
President Barack Hussein Obama has traveled to Cairo and other nations deliberately emphasizing his middle name, Hussein, in an effort to win Muslim support. What is ironic is that President Barack Hussein Obama did not allow the media to use his middle name, Hussein, during the elections and disavowed his Muslim roots. In America if someone used his middle name, Hussein, they were considered "out of bounds." But, in recent weeks he seemed to have re-discovered his Muslim roots and has transformed himself into a Muslim in order to win the favor of the Muslim world.
Obama is seeking a "new way forward" with the Muslim world. But, unfortunately that "new way forward" means turning his back on Israel. President Barack Obama is now bragging about his Muslim heritage. Yet, during the campaign his "handlers" accused anyone who talked about his Muslim roots as trying to scare people. During his speech at Cairo University, after quoting a verse from the Koran, Obama said he firmly believed the interests shared between Americans and Muslims are much stronger than those forces driving us apart. Part of that conviction, he said, is "rooted in my own experience." What experience is that? During the election he claimed to have prayed to Christ to forgive him for his sins.
Obama said, "I’m a Christian, but my father came from a Kenyan family that includes generations of Muslims. As a boy, I spent several years in Indonesia and heard the call of the azaan at the break of dawn and at the fall of dusk. As a young man, I worked in Chicago communities where many found dignity and peace in their Muslim faith. "¦ So I have known Islam on three continents before coming to the region where it was first revealed." Again, he never spoke like this during his campaign. As to his "work in the Chicago communities," he was a community organizer for openly atheistic and socialist groups who employed the radical socialist Saul Alinsky’s, outlined in his book Rules for Radicals who the atheistic radical dedicated to "Lucifer the first radical."
Obama speaking at the Turkish parliament in Ankara, was introduced by his full name, Barack Hussein Obama. But, he would not allow that name to be mentioned in the U.S. Obama said, "The United States has been enriched by Muslim Americans. Many other Americans have Muslims in their families or have lived in a Muslim-majority country"”I know, because I am one of them." But, at Rick Warren’s Church, Obama said he was a Christian and now he reverses himself and calls himself a Muslim. The entire Muslim world believes he is a Muslim and the Communist world believes he is a fellow "Comrade" in the world socialist revolution. This is why Hugo Chavez of Venezuela gave him a gift which was written by the Communist leader Lenin. Lenin was the Communist leader who was responsible for the death of around 100 million people.
While overseas, President Obama exaggerated this supposed Islamic enrichment of American civilization. "If you actually took the number of Muslim Americans," he said in an interview in the lead-up to his speech in Egypt, "we’d be one of the largest Muslim countries in the world." Now that statement is absolutely ridiculous! According to statistics, the U.S. would rank somewhere between 34th and 48th on the list. The Muslim population in America is estimated to be somewhere between 1.8 and 6 million, which is much less than 1 percent of the total number of Muslims worldwide.
Obama addressed the "Islamic world" from Cairo. Obama’s appearance gave credibility to the Muslim Brotherhood, Hamas, and other terrorist groups. Among the guests Washington invited to Obama’s Cairo speech were members of the Muslim Brotherhood (MB). The Muslim Brotherhood is a reported by intelligence sources as a known terrorist group. President Obama said that Iran should have the right to develop nuclear power"”so long as it’s peaceful. How could that be peaceful if Iran has threatened over and over again to wipe Israel off of the face of the map. Iran holds conferences claiming the Holocaust never happened. The Iranian nuclear program is moving full speed ahead. Behind the scenes the Obama Administration is telling Netanyahu that Israel will have to accept a nuclear Iran.
Israel rightly perceives a nuclear Iran as an existential threat to its very existence. As such, Israel is going to be forced to fly over Iran and destroy their nuclear production plants. Israel has no other choice, it is either that or face extinction. There is a prophetic convergence of factors on the horizon. A perfect prophetic storm, if you will. First, of all the Taliban will probably take control of Pakistan giving al Qaeda 80-100 nukes. In addition, Pakistan is a far more powerful nation that Iran and 175 million people live there.
Behind the scenes the U.S. State Department is pressuring Israel to not only accept a two-state solution, but Obama and the EU want the Palestinians to control Jerusalem. This was the reason the Pope traveled to the City of David. The Vatican has an interest in controlling an "international Jerusalem" under the authority of the Palestinians. The Book of Daniel talks about a coming clash between the European "king of the north" and the Iran-led "king of the south" involving Jerusalem. President Obama has said America "does not accept the l continued Israeli settlements." I had a private meeting with the former Prime Minister of Israel, Ehud Olmert, where he assured me Israel would not give away land for peace. Yet, Ehud Olmert, with U.S. pressure offered Mahmoud Abbas, a Palestinian State last year. But Abbas and the Islamic world believe that with the U.S. under Obama they can get a nuclear Iran, total control of Jerusalem and much more terroritory than was offered before!
Despite the fact that Obama visited some of the concentration camps of the Holocaust and rightly rebuked any nation that would choose to ignore the historical evidence of the Holocaust. The reality is that the foreign policy of the America, EU, Germany, Russia, China, Great Britain, France and other nations are setting the stage for a second Holocaust. Like Adolph Hitler, who very clearly outlined in advance what he planned to do in his book Mein Kampf, militant Islam, Iran, al Qaeda and the Palestinians have outlined very clearly in advance what they plan to do with Israel. Once the balance of power is changed through al Qaeda controlling nuclear weapons through Pakistan and Iran developing nuclear weapons, a Holocaust is in the making. These militant Islamic groups have said it over and over again what their precise intentions are and that is the total destruction of the nation of Israel.
Once the balance of power is changed, they will either fire nuclear missiles into Israeli cities like Tel Aviv or they will use terrorist surrogates to smuggle in some kind of suitcase nuke. The terrorists will no longer be outside of Israel. Once the two-state solution is implemented the Islamic terrorists will bring WMD’s into the very heart of Israel and like the suicide bombers they will detonate these nuclear weapons in act of worship to Allah.
Netanyahu will conduct a pre-emptive strike before this occurs. But, a flying over Iran and dropping bunker-busting bombs on Iranian nuclear production facilities is going to provoke a counter reaction. Despite the problems with George W. Bush, the militant Islamic world was kept in check by their fear that Bush was fully capable of pulling the nuclear trigger. This is why Dick Cheney rebuked Obama publicly over the Obama Administration’s denial that we are still in a war against terrorism. The new American strategy toward militant Islam being presented by President Obama simply reflects the deeply misguided perception by the Council on Foreign Relations, the EU, Soros, Rockefeller, Kissinger and other advocates of globalism. The CFR, the State Department and globalists falsely assume that because they are pragmatists and motivated by profit, that militant Islam is motivated by pragmatism and economics. To a certain degree that is true when you are talking about the more rational leaders of Saudi Arabia and the Middle East. But, let us never forget that there are jihadists who are quite capable of sacrificing millions of their own citizens in a war against Israel and the United States. Like the Third Reich and Hitler, these people are not primarily motivated by economics and pragmatism. They truly believe that they are being guided by Allah to provoke Armageddon so that the 12th Imam or Islamic Messiah can return. Ahmadinejad, like Hitler before him, has told us exactly what he is going to do with nuclear weapons. He has said, he is going to "wipe" Israel "off the map" and to create a "world without America." In plain language that means extreme economic warfare, WMD’s or an Electro Magnetic Pulse Weapon.
"Ahmadinejad has repeatedly said, "Do you know why we wish for chaos at any price?" Hearing no responses, he said: "Because, after the chaos, we can see the greatness of Allah." Chaos is central to Ahmadinejad's religious beliefs. He believes, as many militant Shiites do, that the Twelfth Imam, or "Mahdi," a messianic figure from the ninth century, will soon reappear to signal the end of the modern world and the onset of Islamic justice over all the earth. Ahmadinejad believes he has been called to herald the Mahdi." Unless this is confronted by world leaders who see reality clearly, another Holocaust is on its way.
