He ran against a disgraced president and his policies. He ran in the aftermath of an unpopular war and on a platform of human rights; and he won. His theme was change, and that's what America and the Middle East got. No, not Barack Obama; Jimmy Carter. The Liberal Left Democratic president believed that America needed to support an Islamic revolution.
Carter perceived Khomeini as a "religious holy man in a grassroots, democratic revolution," rather than the founding father of modern terrorism. Carter's ambassador, Andrew Young, said, "Khomeini will eventually be hailed a saint." His ambassador to Iran, William Sullivan, declared, "Khomeini is a Gandhi-like figure." The former president of France, Valery Giscard D'Estaing told me that in January 1979 on the French Island of Guadeloupe, Carter informed him, the West German Chancellor Helmut Kohl, and British Prime Minister James Callaghan that the U.S. government could not support the Shah of Iran but was working behind the scenes to oust him in favor of a cleric—Khomeini. I was told the same thing by General Robert Huyser, sent to Iran by Carter to keep the Iranian military in check.
On April 1, 1979, Khomeini officially declared his Islamic revolution and called it the "first day of the government of God." That declaration was accompanied by screams of "Death to America." The tragic mistake by Jimmy Carter precipitated the Russian invasion of Afghanistan, the Iran-Iraq War, the funding of the Mujahedeen beginning with $50 million and ultimately up to $10 billion, matched by the Saudis.
Nothing much has changed in the thirty-plus years since Khomeini's declaration. Radical Islamists have planned from the beginning to try to establish Islamic states in the Middle East, including Pakistan, Afghanistan, the Gulf States, Egypt, Jordan, Saudi Arabia, etc. Their second phase would be to expand to regions and nations that already have a strong Muslim population, i.e., Eastern Europe. The third phase would be to spread the caliphate to America and the rest of the world.
The attack on the United States on September 11, 2001, was not aimed at bringing down the U.S., or even to allow radical Islam to take over; it was to send a message to America. It was aimed at illustrating to the government the ability of radical Islamic terrorism to seriously injure the economy and the safety of its citizens. It was a signal that if the U.S. did not initiate a foreign policy that corresponded with the interests of radical Islam, the unthinkable would happen.
Bin Laden and radical Islamists consider the U.S. as the primary obstacle to achieving the first phase of the strategy to take over the Middle East. The plan was to force America to stop supporting Muslim allies in the Gulf as it had done with the Shah of Iran. Bin Laden believed if he could get America to turn on its allies, there would be no one to protect these regimes from a radical Islamic revolution. This is precisely what an Internet-savvy, community organizer, President Barack Hussein Obama is doing. He is betting the farm on democratic governments that will likely be totally aligned with mosques, mullahs, and madrassas, and will enhance America's foreign policy interests in the region rather than lending support to dictator-allies.
History will give President Obama as much credit for the Islamic revolution now being birthed as it gave Ronald Reagan for the fall of the Berlin Wall. The president has now taken on becoming the Middle East Muslim community organizer. He apparently believes that change is not only desirable and inevitable, but that the U.S. must take the lead in shaping the Middle East.
In August 2010 President Obama, believing that America's relationship with the Arab world was broken, issued Presidential Study Directive 11 asking agencies to prepare for change. The document cited evidence of growing citizen discontent with the "region's regimes" and warned that "the region is entering a critical period of transition." The president asked his advisors to "manage these risks by demonstrating to the people of the Middle East and North Africa a gradual but real prospect of greater political openness and improved governance."
Six months later, this revolution was toppling leaders in Tunisia, Egypt, and Libya and spreading to the Gulf oil fields. The response of Obama's deputy national security adviser, Ben Rhodes was, "We have a core interest in stability through political and economic change. The status quo is not stable."
The White House reviewed earlier democratic shifts in Indonesia, the Philippines, Serbia, Poland, and Chile for "lessons learned." From that study, Obama's team bought into transition to achieve "buy-in"; affecting quick change that is obvious to all, i.e., setting political prisoners free, giving freedom to the press, freedom to protest—precisely what Jimmy Carter demanded in Iran.
This review has led U.S. officials to conclude that countries need to bring the opposition quickly into a change to achieve "buy-in"; make fast changes that people can see, such as freeing political prisoners; and sequence events, putting the easiest first, so that presidential elections precede parliamentary balloting and detailed rewriting of the Constitution.
President Obama gave his "Berlin Wall speech" on June 4, 2009, in Cairo. He declared that "tension has been fed by colonialism that denied rights and opportunities to many Muslims, and a Cold War in which Muslim-majority countries were too often treated as proxies without regard to their own aspirations." This is the core of Obama foreign policy change: to not have strong allies in the Middle East as proxies.
President Obama inspired hope for the masses when he, as an African-American with the name Barack Hussein Obama, made it clear that America was not "at war with Islam," and that the two greatest destabilizing factors in the Middle East were al Qaeda and Israel. President Obama made a bold and impassioned plea for democracy in his speech. He said: "There are some who will advocate for democracy only when they are in power, and once in power, they are ruthless in suppressing the rights of others … elections alone do not make true democracy."
The specter of a global collapse of the world's economy, along with Islamic Sunni oil states at war against the "Great Satan"—America, and the "Little Satan"—Israel, may be the price the West will have to pay for "April Fools."

Persia: The Final Jihad
Persia. The very word evokes images of kings and princes and tales of Arabian nights, of Scheherazade, the teller of 1001 stories of cunning and derring-do.
However, Persia was not solely acclaimed for the tales of 1001 Arabian Nights, but for algebra, Backgammon, a postal service, military conscription, and advances in human rights.
Living in the FOG (Favor of God)
Until God gave me this revelation, I had no idea that Scriptures I had circled even as a child would have special significance in the years to come.
After having seen Jesus face-to-face at the age of eleven, I knew I wanted to hear His voice again. That is what sparked this amazing search. I learned through this revelation how to hear the voice of God again and again-through His Word.
As a young girl, Sarah Batsheva was infatuated with the handsome teenage boy who lived down the street. That teenage boy was Adolf Eichmann. It all seemed innocent and nice until Sarah's grandmother died, and then nothing was ever the same again.

What is the real reason for the ongoing conflict in the Middle East between the Jewish and Muslim populations?
The Candidate was written in order to expose the lie of The Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion and to reveal the extent to which this lie has led to the ongoing hatred of the Jewish people and the state of Israel by her racist enemies.
It was written in fiction form in order to reach beyond an audience of scholars, academics and political pundits to the common man. Most are unaware of the extent to which even their own opinions about modern Israel and the Jewish people have been subtly influenced by the anti-Semitic slurs which ultimately flow from this hate literature.
The Final Generation
Are the Prophetic Pieces Nearly in Place?
A diabolical counterfeit of God's ultimate plan of salvation seems to be spreading across the Middle East—and is playing out just as foretold in the Bible. While Western Christians seem to be growing more complacent and concerned with their personal comfort and success, a prophetic storm is gathering in the Middle East. Radical Islamists are preparing for the final battle, believing it will usher in a new age of Islamist supremacy.
Do you find these events as chilling as I do?
The Samson Option
Darkness blankets the eastern seaboard. From Maine to Georgia, the power grid is in shambles, destroyed by the pulse of a high-altitude nuclear detonation. Cities and towns of every size are on the verge of chaos. Only the military continues to function, frantically searching the seas for the two container ships bearing nuclear missiles poised for a second strike that will destory what remains of America. The President is convinced the attacks are the work of Al-Qa’ida operatives aided by elements within the Pakistani government. David Hoag knows the truth about who is really behind the attacks, but powerful forces in high places are bent on unleashing America's military might and Israel is poised for a response of its own. Can Hoag reach the President in the time to avert a worldwide disaster? Or, is the beginning of the end?
Events in the Middle East are rapidly moving toward total chaos. Eyes worldwide are directed toward every country except the one that is most important—Israel. It has been called the "world's canary in the coal mine." You know the story of how miners carried canaries into coal mines to detect poisonous methane gas. It was one of the first early warning systems.
Each of the countries that surround Israel—Lebanon, Syria, Jordan, and Egypt—is in upheaval to some degree. The only matter on which all can agree is their hatred for Israel and the Jewish people.
Sorrowfully, the Liberal Left in America has drawn a line in the sand and stepped over to the other side—away from our long-time ally, Israel. President Barack Obama's one-world view has placed him squarely alongside the United Nations. He has cast his lot with those who would see Israel stripped, bleeding, and impotent to defend herself. No longer the Good Samaritan, he has befriended those who pass by on the other side and ignore the threat Israel faces.
IT’S A LIE THAT WOULD NOT DIE;
believed to be true by Adolf Hitler, Henry Ford, and the late Osama bin Laden. It was introduced by the Russian secret police in an attempt to bolster the reign of Tsar Nicholas II. It erroneously exposed his enemies as co-conspirators with the Jews in a plot to take over the world. This fabricated document was embraced by a religious fanatic, Sergei Nilus, and published in 1905 in Russia. He published three separate versions of the book, and the last in 1917 indicated that Theodor Herzl was the writer of the mythical conspiracy theory. The book birthed the pogroms in Russia, and was used by Hitler as an excuse to exterminate six million Jews in Europe. Many Muslim leaders worldwide keep it within reach as the most revered book, after the Quran. Every terrorist organization uses this plagiarized copy to support the vile acts it commits.
When a father forsakes his God-given responsibilities, Can a son find the strength to forgive?
… David took a deep breath and forced himself to think. God’s grace, he told himself, reaches to the depths of sin.
When a son is wounded beyond belief, Can he unleash the healing power of love on his entire family?
Unforgiveness is like drinking poison while hoping it will make your enemy sick, David thought to himself.
When a heaven-sent messenger draws near and empowers healing… Can a man of God believe what he sees?
As he sat there on the step the light through the window grew brighter again, filling the room and surrounding him with its glow.
You’ll love this moving story of grace and forgiveness beyond measure.
I will bless those who bless you, And I will curse him who curses you; And in you all the families of the earth shall be blessed. - Genesis 12:3
President Obama plans to succeed in dividing Jerusalem by 2012, blackmailing Israel over the Iran crisis to achieve his objective. "Never miss the opportunity of a crisis."
The president apparently feels that Jerusalem, Judea, and Samaria are a fair trade in order to keep Iran (Persia) from going atomic. The Obama administration seems to be treating Israel as a property to be bartered — or perhaps more accurately — to be betrayed for the sake of expediency. The Arab world wants its 22nd Islamic state with its capital in Jerusalem for one simple reason: Muslims believe Israel is Arab land occupied by foreigners.
If America touches prophecy - Jerusalem - God's curse will fall upon America and upon President Obama as decreed in Genesie 12:3. The ancient prophet Zachariah cried out, "I will make Jerusalem a cup that will send all the surrounding people reeling … an immovable rock for all nations. All who try to move it will injure themselves."
An Islamic radical drives a Suburban loaded with explosives into the early morning drop-off line at a school in Denver.
In Chicago, another fanatical Muslim drives a gasoline truck into the Chicago Board of Trade building. Death and destruction rain down.
Terrorists crash small, explosive-laden airplanes into the airport in Atlanta, destroying two jumbo jets and the main terminal. All flights are grounded.
A nuclear bomb is exploded high above Washington, D.C. The entire East Coast power grid collapses. Everything is at a standstill.
This electrifying new fiction novel from Mike Evans traces the events from inception to execution — from the hopelessness of a world gone mad to a renewed hope.
Atomic Iran: Countdown to Armageddon
The Story Behind this Provocative Book
The Countdown to Armageddon Has Begun!
Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has said that Israel must be “wiped off the map.” Such a radical statement might seem like bravado and bluster, but the Iranian connection to rocket attacks on Israel make it crystal clear that the Islamic Republic has every intention of following through with its threats of total destruction. Most troubling of all, Iran is pursuing nuclear weapons with reckless determination as part of its mission to annihilate Israel, which Ahmadinejad calls a “stain of disgrace.”
With Iran’s history of contempt for the United Nations, the United States, Great Britain, and of course, Israel, such an apocalyptic event could happen at any moment. You need to take a stand!
Jimmy Carter, the Liberal Left and World Chaos
The presidential election was a public sounding board for the much-touted failures of the Republican Party. He ran against a disgraced president in the aftermath of an unpopular war on a theme of "change." He kept his word, and change began. Barack Obama? No, Jimmy Carter!
Philosopher George Santayana said, "Those who cannot learn from history are doomed to repeat it." Jimmy Carter, the Liberal Left and World Chaos: An Obama/Carter Plan That Will Not Work, is a 550-page hardback revealing how Barack Obama and the Liberal Left are poised to repeat Carter's changes and mistakes!
Mistakes like providing checks of $150 million to the Ayatollah Khomeini to overthrow the Shah of Iran. This change lit the fuse of terrorism that exploded against the world when Khomeini declared April Fools Day 1980 "the first day of the government of God." Radical Islam was born. As if that weren't enough, Carter provided $500 million to the Muslim Brotherhood Freedom Fighters, who became the Taliban and Al-Qaeda
