It seems the whole world is mad at Israel because of the flotilla incident. I am furious for a totally different reason, and that is, to see terrorist-harboring, aiding, and funding organizations and countries, and terrorists themselves contrive a slick, smoke-and-mirror campaign to break Israel's naval blockade. The blockade was established because arms and missiles were being sent into Gaza for only one purpose: to kill Jews.
On the ship the activists/terrorists were chanting slogans such as, “Khaibar, Khaibar, O Jews. The army of Mohammed will return.” This was in reference to the slaughter of Jews by Mohammed in the seventh century. They were screaming, “Martyrdom or victory.” Can you imagine any country arming its troops with paintball guns? That’s precisely what Israel did. The boarders were carrying paintball guns solely for crowd control. Israeli officials didn’t want anyone harmed. They wanted to avoid an incident such as the one that evolved on Memorial Day.
The terrorists on the ship beat the IDF troops with pipes, stabbed them with knives and scissors, tossed stun grenades at them, and then disarmed the troops and shot them with their own pistols. One soldier was thrown over the railing to fall headfirst thirty feet to the deck below. The only way the Israelis could hope to survive was to defend themselves.
In just two examples, in 2001, the Israeli navy intercepted the Karine-A, a ship laden with tons of weapons bound for Gaza from Iran. In November 2009, the Francop, a container ship dispatched from a German port carried hundreds of tons of war materiel to be off-loaded for Hezbollah. Containers aboard the ship were clearly stamped with Iranian markings.
Would any country worldwide permit such a thing? The answer is an unequivocal No! Because of the arms that reached Hamas and Hezbollah in the past, more than 10,000 missiles have been fired at innocent Jewish refugees--mothers, fathers, and children. I was in Israel during both the Lebanese war and the Hamas/Gaza war. Missiles were flying over my head. I saw homes demolished and visited the wounded whose bodies were filled with shrapnel. I was heartbroken to see that playgrounds for small children contained bomb shelters.
If you think for one moment that the events surrounding the Free Gaza campaign flotilla were just a coincidence, you are misinformed. It was timed for maximum effect. It was never a humanitarian campaign to help suffering people. This is why it was labeled "Free Gaza." The leaders of the flotilla rejected numerous Israeli offers to send the food and medical supplies through the Israeli port of Ashdod, the gate for all humanitarian supplies into Gaza.
The terrorist organization behind the flotilla was the IHH (Islan Haklary Ve Hurriyetleri Vakfi) founded in 1992. It has been on the CIA's watchlist since 1996 because of its fanatical Islamist teachings. Under the guise of a "charity," it has a record of sending donations to Muslim disaster areas. The IHH is not the force for good it purports to be. It is backed by a Saudi-based group known to back terrorism. The chairman of the organization, Sheikh Yusuf Qaradawi, advocates suicide attacks against innocent Israeli civilians, and funnels millions to support Hamas. According to a Danish study, the IHH is also reported to have ties with al-Qaeda and other "global jihadist networks." French intelligence reports support the Danish study.
Israel gave up Gaza as a land-for-peace offer hoping for peace. Instead it got a living hell. Hamas, an Iranian-backed terrorist organization, went into Gaza, unspeakably persecuting Christians and Palestinians alike. Christians have been executed in the streets and doused with acid, until they fled. They take their lives in their own hands if they dare carry a Bible or go to church.
It is also a death sentence if a person is determined to be gay in Gaza. If a barber cuts the hair of a woman, he spends time in jail...or worse. It's no different than what is happening with the Taliban in Afghanistan. These are radical, Jew-hating, Muslim fanatics. The Hamas charter calls for the destruction of the entire State of Israel. The murder of every Jew is celebrated.
The worldwide condemnation of Israel is racist and bigoted. It's the foulest lie perpetrated since the days of Hitler. Gaza is a Taliban-run area now. Despite the fact that Israel forfeited the area, the Palestinians in Gaza have suffered terribly at the hands of Hamas. None of the items on the ship were needed in Gaza; each day Israel sends hundreds of truckloads of food and medical supplies. The medical supplies aboard the ship were outdated.
Iran has not received a modicum of the condemnation that has been heaped upon Israel. Iran was, in fact, behind the flotilla debacle. Egypt offered to transfer the supplies to Gaza. The Free Gaza martyrdom or victory organizers said No. It wasn't about humanitarian aid. It was about setting a trap for Israel.
The UN, the EU, Russia, China, the Arab League, and virtually the entire world have condemned Israel. The silence of those who support Israel, including the U.S. is deafening. Nations around the world are calling on the U.S. to abandon a 63-year alliance with its only true Middle East ally.
The Obama administration is pressing Israel to allow into the Gaza Strip new activist flotillas setting sail from Europe, according to what an official in Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's government told me just days ago.
Separately, an Israeli government official said the White House asked Netanyahu for concessions in Israeli-Palestinian negotiations. This was to be in exchange for U.S. opposition to the establishment of a United Nations commission to investigate Israel's commando raid of a flotilla.
Iran is now on the northern and southern borders of Israel with its proxies, Hamas and Hezbollah. It wants to wipe Israel from the map. A war is coming. Iran wants to arm its proxies so they can murder tens of thousands of Jews if Israel should try to intervene in Iran's nuclear plans.
Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad seems intent on setting yet another trap for Israel. Iranian Red Crescent director for International Affairs, Abdolrauf Adibzadeh, has announced that two ships would sail from Iran to Gaza this week under Turkish supervision. A hospital ship would soon follow. He called for 20,000 relief workers to accompany the two ships. The scene is apparently being set for a confrontation.
In Turkey for the Asian security summit, Ahmadinejad said of Israel, “The devilish sound of the uncultured Zionists was coming out from their deceit. ... They were holding up the flag of the devil itself…it has actually rung the final countdown for its existence. It shows that it has no room in the region and no one is ready to live alongside it. Actually, no country in the world recognizes it, and you know that the Zionist regime is the backbone of the dictatorial world order.”
Israel says it will not allow the Iranian ships into Gaza, and that its navy is prepared for any eventuality. The Israelis won’t be so easy a target this time.

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.

… 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.

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
