On January 20, 2009 Jimmy Carter announced a new plan for peace in the Middle East and appealed to President Barack Obama to implement that plan. He met with Obama just days before the inauguration to attempt to sway him about what the former president called an "unnecessary war" in Gaza. Carter has long been a vocal proponent of establishing an ongoing relationship with Hamas' terrorist leaders. It appears his influence has already made inroads in Obama's Middle East policy plans.
Today's society is replete with makeovers, everything from extreme home makeovers to extreme people makeovers; everything from plastic surgery, to botox, to liposuction and other cosmetic enhancements. However, one of the most extreme makeovers took place in France in the late 1970s when the dour Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini was transformed almost overnight into a VIP, the darling of the liberal Western media.
Khomeini received the make-over of all times. This son of an Indian fortune-teller was stripped of his past. His father became the leader of the Khomeini clan who, supposedly, was murdered by Pahlavi's father. Khomeini graduated from second-rate mullah to academic and renowned holy man. If he was the Eliza Doolittle of this scenario, who was the Henry Higgins? What country (or countries) was so determined to unseat the Shah that it was willing to undertake the transformation?
Dominique Lorenz, a journalist for the French Libération, wrote that "having picked Khomeini to overthrow the Shah, [the Americans] had to get him out of Iraq, clothe him with respectability, and set him up in Paris; a succession of events which could not have occurred if the leadership in France had been against it."
In France, Khomeini's Iranian visitors totaled more than one thousand per day, all of whom the French blessed or, at the very least, turned a blind eye. The Ayatollah became the "Guru of Hate" as he shared his vitriolic dislike for the Shah with all who would listen and learn. These disciples, including a number from various American universities, were not coming just to sit at the feet of the "Teacher" and learn; their pockets, lined with money collected through the Bazaar, the commercial system in Iran, were empty when they left Khomeini's presence. Some estimates place the contributions at approximately twenty million British pounds.
The Ayatollah's compound was reportedly surrounded by representatives of covert agencies from the major powers: the CIA, Britain's MI-6, Russia's KGB, and the French intelligence organization, SDECE. One has to wonder why an unknown, uncultured, old cleric was the focus of such attention. Intelligence officers from Israel, France and the U.S. stated that the U.S. government wrote checks to Khomeini while he was in Paris in increments of approximately $150 million each. They were delivered through the CIA. One man with whom I spoke stated, "Jimmy Carter should have been tried for treason for aiding and abetting an enemy of the United States."
Carter perceived Khomeini more as a religious holy man in a grassroots revolution than the founding father of modern terrorism. Carter's ambassador to the UN, Andrew Young, said, "Khomeini will eventually be hailed as a saint." Carter's Iranian ambassador, William Sullivan, said, "Khomeini is a Gandhi-like figure." Carter adviser James Bill proclaimed in a Newsweek interview on February 12, 1979, that Khomeini was not a mad mujahid, but a man of "impeccable integrity and honesty."
In the midst of the turmoil in Iran or perhaps because of it, President Carter called for a summit on the French Republic island of Guadeloupe in the Caribbean. Invited to meet with Carter in January 1979 were French President Valery Giscard d'Estaing, West German Chancellor Helmut Schmidt, and British Prime Minister James Callaghan. In his memoir, Answer to History, the Shah wrote: "Giscard said they hoped to ‘evaluate the situation of the world,' with special emphasis on events in the eastern Mediterranean and the Persian Gulf. I believe that during those meetings the French and West Germans agreed with the British and the American proposals for my ouster." It was at Guadeloupe, according to D'Estaing, that Carter showed his hand in favor of the ouster of the Shah.
Giscard d'Estaing expressed his shock at Carter's lack of regard for a country that had been a close ally for decades:
We were humanly shocked by the way Carter spoke because we knew at the end it would lead to the torture or the killing of the Shah. And he [Carter] was not embarrassed at all; no, no, he spoke very lightly of a man that we supported very strongly.…He [Carter] was a bastard of conscience, a moralist, who treats with total lightness the fact of abandoning a man that we had supported together. At least you need to have some emotion. And we didn't have any discussion.…It was, "We have decided."
Is Jimmy Carter guilty of treason? In more recent times, he has thumbed his nose at the State Department after having been asked not to meet with leaders of Hamas. Mr. Carter drooled all over Yasser Arafat and went so far as to help him write a speech designed to influence opinion in the terrorist's favor. Mr. Carter has betrayed the trust of the American people by purporting to represent its government in terrorist lairs; he has denounced the United States and its leaders in the presence of enemy combatants and terrorist leaders.
If not guilty of treason, Mr. Carter is at the very best a quisling, a collaborator with the enemy. Vedkum Quisling was a Norwegian politician who ordered all armed resistance to the Nazi invasion to cease, and gave Norway into the hands of the Germans during World War II. His name is now synonymous with the words "collaborator" and "traitor." How far will Mr. Carter go in order to make a name for himself?

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.

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 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.

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
