A Thought For You

In case we find ourselves starting to believe all  the anti-American sentiment and negativity, we should remember the UK's Prime Minister Tony Blair's words in January 2003, during his address to British ambassadors in London, he said::

"...I sometimes think it is a good rule of thumb to ask of a country: are people trying to get into it or out of it? It's not a bad guide to what sort of country it is." 


Only  two defining forces have ever offered to die for you:

1.  Jesus  Christ
2.  The American G. I.

One died for your soul, the other for your  freedom.

Halutz told the paper that the IDF was no longer targeting members of that terror group because it had joined up with the PA’s armed forces and was no longer involved in attacks against Israel.  Calling the Galilee, “occupied territory,” a spokesman for the Brigades said the organization would continue the armed struggle to liberate it.

Your dismissal of President Bush’s ascertation that our adversaries intend to create a “radical Islamic empire that spans from Spain to Indonesia” is not surprising.  Whether you approve of President Bush’s handling of the present conflict in Iraq or not, that statement is a matter of fact.  No sane person would want to see the religious wars that tore Europe to pieces in the 16th and 17th centuries reenacted today but this is precisely what is happening in Western Europe, in the Russian Federation, in Indonesia, in China in Thailand, in the Philippines, in Nigeria, in the Sudan and other points.  Our enemies, and we are their enemies, have time and time again stated in clear and precise terms that this is a holy war and they mean to win it. ...

What hope for the ‘axis of moderates’?
Daily Times 2005/10/15
... King Abdullah II’s visit to Asia wraps up the cast of the so-called “axis of moderate Islam” — countries like Pakistan, Turkey, Malaysia and Indonesia. Jordan’s belated entry into the line-up is not entirely unexpected, considering that oil-poor Jordan — unlike its other Arab neighbours — is largely dependent on foreign aid and Western tourism. King Abdullah II’s rise to the global stage has been aided and abetted by his country’s pro-American leanings and the role that Jordan has played in helping the US broker its peace deal in the Middle-East. ...

But what is likely to happen in the course of Abdullah II’s Asian road show is nothing more than the generation and reproduction of the consensus among Muslim elites, all of them beholden to Washington in one way or another.

How to constitute a civil war
Asia Times Online 2005/10/15
... Another key article disappeared from the final (ie, today's) draft. It used to be Article 16, according to which:
1) It is forbidden for Iraq to be used as a base or corridor for foreign troops.
2) It is forbidden to have foreign military bases in Iraq.
3) The National Assembly can, when necessary, and with a majority of two thirds of its members, allow what is mentioned in 1 and 2 of this article.
The blatant contradiction speaks for itself. In the final draft, there's no reference to the crucial issue of occupation troops or occupation military bases - which raises the question: is Iraq set up to be under permanent US military occupation? ...
Better yet for Iraq, why not have an Arab country set up military operation inside Iraq?  AMMAN, May 20 (Xinhuanet) -- Jordanian King Abdullah II said on Friday that any political and economic reform in the Mideast must come from within and not be imposed from outside, alluding to US call for liberalization in the Arab world.  The above changes, and the King's statement,  would make it ripe for Jordan to setup in IRAQ instead of the US.  After all, they are 'brotherly countries', a term that has been floated a lot lately.  From there, it's only a short walk down the street to the control of Iraq.
Also ref: Chicago Sun Times June 10 ... Abdullah said Vision 2010, the reform road map hammered out last month by Arab leaders meeting in Jordan for the World Economic Forum, has set specific democracy goals for the region in key areas that can be monitored. But each state must move at its own pace, which won't be dictated by the West, he said, citing his own obstacles. "One challenge is resistance from those who fear uncertainty and change. To thwart the process, they've . . . tried to label reform as coming from the outside," he said. "The second challenge, a skeptical public. . . . Doubters question if it will really happen." The king took only a handful of questions from the audience, asserting in his responses that while President Bush's democratization efforts in Iraq inspired regional reforms, those reforms must be led from within and not by America. ...

***** Sukkot in Jerusalem, Holy Temple Style *****

Arutz Sheva - Israel 2005/10/14
Five families have already signed up to join the initiative, and plan to build their sukkot - holiday huts - on a hillside overlooking the Temple Mount. Jerusalem archaeologist Tzachi Zweig says that this is how it used to be done:  "We know that there is a Biblical commandment to visit Jerusalem on the three Festivals, but on the Sukkot holiday, it is more than just a visit. Shavuot (Pentecost) is only one day, and the commandment on Passover is also only for one day - but the commandment on Sukkot is to 'rejoice before G-d for seven days'. We are commanded on Sukkot to live in temporary huts, or booths, and it's clear that with the masses of people who came, not all of their hundreds of thousands of booths could fit inside the city. Many huts were built outside the city, overlooking the Holy Temple, and there are many sources indicating this... It's logical that Mt. Scopus and the Mt. of Olives would be chosen for this purpose."  The site chosen for the renewal of this practice is the Emek Tzurim National Park, on the slopes of Mt. Scopus, beneath Yeshivat Beit Orot and Hebrew University. "This is the location where we have been running an ongoing archaeological analysis of dirt and rubble from the Temple Mount," ... ... Some people said that it's too hard for them to come, or the wife is pregnant, or whatever - but I reminded them that in the times of the Temple, there were no such excuses; everyone came. We want to accustom people to the traditional - and future - way of keeping the holiday."

Desert Faiths Cast Long Shadow -- Miers Case Foreshadows Rise of the Theocratic State

As much as they may compete with each other, the world's three desert faiths find common ground when it comes to promoting the rise of the theocratic state. ... ...

QUESTION:  Yes, this is about the letter from Ayman al-Zawahiri to Abu Musab al- Zarqawi.  It talks about that they feel that they're launching a battle within the media.  And I was wondering if you could talk about whether you think in this letter that al-Qaida is kind of laying out their battle for hearts and minds of Muslims around the world with America.
MR. ERELI:  Well, I think what the letter shows clearly is that -- it shows clearly the nature of the enemy we're dealing with.  And this isn't a question of hearts and minds; it's a question of bodies and gore, quite frankly, meaning that this is a network and this is a confederacy of evil that will stop at nothing to advance its radical agenda.  And that agenda was made very clear.  It's a caliphate that will start in Iraq and move to take over Saudi Arabia, Jordan and Syria, and practice the kind of abuse and intolerance and perfidy that we saw under the Taliban ...
Seems that the King is on a somewhat parallel pathway, only his MO is Peace & Security, by which, as anyone who knows Biblical prophecy, that end-time individual will prevail until he is crushed by Jesus himself upon His return.  It also seems to be the 'hidden' plan to use 'terror', which has driven us and the world into the 'good graces' of the Muslim King Abdullah II of Jordan to work it out among his own people of the Islamic world, the religion that he himself appears to have 'hijacked'.  Has anyone else heard the constant bleatings that Arab governance is a Arab/Muslim and internal issue?  This then, peace & security (safety), is how the power will be obtained with the 'blessings' of the world, and thence 'a crown ...given unto him'.  The problem is that the end time dictator will become worse than Hitler, Saddam, and all the other demons before him.  Ours then is the ultimate blunder and deception in the US and the world for going along with it and propping him up.

Jordan’s king reaches out to U.S. rabbis 2005/10/6

Abbas Sends SOS to Sharon
Arutz Sheva - Israel 2005/10/6
Middle East expert Prof. Rafi Yisraeli, speaking with Arutz-7 today, said that the Sharon-Abbas meeting is an "SOS call from Abbas to Sharon." Before he elaborated, however, he said that King Abdullah's intervention in arranging it requires explanation:
"When he has problems with Iraq, he doesn't come and ask for our help, so why is he getting involved between us and the Palestinians? In my opinion, this shows the basic flaw in the entire process known as the 'peace process' - including our peace treaty with Jordan. The whole country [Israel] was excited about the 'great' thing we did by signing a peace treaty with Jordan in 1994 - but the fact is that we didn't sign an agreement with Jordan, but rather with the Hashemite Kingdom.

"[The problem is that] the Hashemite family is not a state, nor is it a nation, but is rather a regime that controls a country that is mostly Palestinian. It is well known that King Abdullah is scared to death, just like his father King Hussein was, that one day they will be told that Jordan is really the Palestinian state, or part thereof. Therefore, King Hussein made a very smart move by making peace with Israel, thus having Israel recognize Jordan as a Hashemite country - leaving the Palestinian problem for us [Israel] to deal with all alone. And we fell into this trap, and in fact the Palestinian problem is all ours. In the meantime, Abdullah plays the role of the hero, the mediator, etc.

"But the [Palestinian] problem won't go away, because if the Arabs of Judea and Samaria receive a state, and even if they are fine and perfect, they still only comprise a third of those who see themselves as Palestinian; the 2/3 who are in other countries will still continue to knock on our doors. There is simply no solution to the Palestinian problem if [the area of] Jordan is not involved - and yet Sharon is going along with Abdullah's strategy." ...
