Global SITREP B6-16: Knowledge is Power

Jordan Border Crossing: Jabhat al-Nusra (Al Qaeda) In Control
7 April 2016: Some time ago I gave the readers of Eschatology Today a warning regarding acceptance of news reporting. The warning to the reader was that during wartime the truth will often be hidden by a bodyguard of outright lies or various levels of disinformation. The war continues and so does my warning. We need to be careful no matter where the information we receive comes from.


Everything about this sentence is true except for the most important part - the identification of the terrorist group and flag in the image. As I privately informed the editors at DEBKAfile yesterday  afternoon (we are on the same side in this war, no?) that is NOT an ISIS terrorist waving the ISIS battle flag at an apparently abandoned Jordanian border crossing.  It is a Jabhat al-Nusra (JN) terrorist waving the Al-Qaeda-aligned Jabhat al-Nusra battle flag. 

There is no way on Earth that the astute and experienced editors at DEBKAfile made such a blatant error in the positive identification of an ISIS flag versus the Jabhat al-Nusra flag. It is something a 6-year old child with two minutes of instruction could correctly do with flash cards. 

So, the first question is: For what not-so-obvious political purpose or agenda would DEBKAfile deliberately publish a disinformational report for the whole world to see, and then create a narrative account of reactions to the image by the Israeli government and those of Jordan, the US, the Saudi and UAE military officers? Is the world to believe the military intelligence professionals working for these governments do not know the existent facts on the ground at the Jordanian border? Of course they do. So why the nonsense from DEBKAfile for John and Jane Q. Public to consume?

The second question is: If this photograph is accurate in its depiction, does it provide the first solid evidence that the forces of Islamic State and the jihadists of Al-Qaeda's brand have joined forces in the face of the ongoing Russian-Iranian-Hezbollah-Syrian military offensive, plus the U.S.led Coalition military operation

The third question is: If so, then why is this not the core subject of the DEBKAfile report? Why is it not the subject of Corporate News Media (in the U.S. that's ABC, CBS, FOX, NBC, CNN and the lot) reporting? Buckle up, a completely unexpected Immelmann maneuver begins with the next sentence

DEBKAfile actually got the core issue correct. The Sunni jihadists of the self-declared Islamic State caliphate and the nebulous global jihadists under Al Qaeda's banner are not enemies - they're allies! They are allies in their primary jihad against the secular West, Christianity and Judaism, and secondarily against their enemies of the Russian-Syrian-Iranian axis. How do I know this? I read the stuff the corporate media have embargoed in their boardrooms because they are in agreement with the agenda being pursued by Western governments, led by our own.

Remember the good ol' days? The enemy was known and clearly identified. They were Communists who followed the rigid ideology of Communism. The US and our European and Pacific allies took this clear identification of the enemy and his ideology and crafted a warfighting doctrine with which to defeat the enemy. Ultimately the doctrine succeeded, at least with respect to the former-USSR. 

Now look at the enemy today. We know them as Islamists and their ideology is Islamism. And that's where the similarity ends because the US and our European and Pacific allies resolutely refuse to name Islamists as the enemy and Islamism as their ideology. From this point the failure escalates due to an abject refusal to use this knowledge to craft a warfighting doctrine with which to defeat this enemy. 

This is the reason why this war in many military and intelligence circles, which was fully engaged long before many of us realized that out enemy was at war with us, is known as "The Long War." Without the requisite definition of an enemy and his ideology upon which a warfighting doctrine must be crafted this war will be endless. A perpetual and perfectly good global crisis which those wielding power have no intention of allowing to go to waste.

Remember the "Global War on Terrorism"?  My how the political establishment wailed when this nomenclature was done away with, never mind the fact that no nation has ever successfully waged war against a tactic. Terrorism is not an enemy, it is a tactic used by the enemy. And the recent media headlines across Europe and the US were absolutely predictable: "Terror Attacks San Bernardino" and "Terror Attacks Paris" and "Terror Attacks Brussels."  Terror did not attack anyone or any city. Islamists executing their ideological Islamism attacked the US and French Marines in Beirut in 1983, and every cold-blooded Islamic assault since then to include San Bernardino, Paris, Brussels, Madrid, London, New York City, Washington, D.C. and Shanksville, PA, just to name a handful.

Why isn't this the real news then? Why propagate falsehood for the public to consume. You see where I am coming from, and where I am going. People are being conditioned to believe the lie. Any lie.  Any lie the regime in power wants the public to believe will be accepted because the public has been pre-conditioned to believe it. Heaven help those who reject the lie, whatever it is. And it took me all of four days to attempt to make some kind coherent sense of this and express it here.

I'm not going to hold my breath on this, but there is just the slightest chance the Islamic State-Al Qaeda alliance might become public knowledge through the global corporate media. I hold out this slim chance because I have seen in the past day or so news from Arab-language media where some exceptionally brave Muslim journalists have actually called out Islam as being responsible for the unending wave of global terror. Muslims usually don't call out other Muslims or cite Islamism as the cause of cold-blooded carnage and live long to tell about it. Chances are they'll be assassinated or beheaded, or worse, but it is a faint glimmer of a chance that will likely evaporate with a new wave of jihadist assaults in Rome, London, New York or WhoKnowsWhere. 

Marana'tha Lord, Marana'tha!

Are the reporters to be honestly believed? In this day and age, I say Sean that much of the media and reports only say what people like to hear. Ya know, deceit and apostasy!

quoted "Although Al-Qaeda’s chief regards Islamic State and its leader as “illegitimate,” he would consider joining efforts with the rival terrorist organization in order to counter the West, Shiites and “secularists,” an audiotape on the internet has revealed."

Sean, It seems to me that the powers lay the ground work with the medias complicity to achieve there desired ends. It give them justification for their action in the publics eyes but not based on the truth of the matter.
The public rarely remembers true facts.

I wonder in Jesus day how many believed the lie the sanhedrin spread that Jesus' body was stolen by his disciples even though the tomb was sealed and guarded. Facts vs propaganda

jmoll106 said...

Sean, excellent point! They keep repeating the same thing over and over til it's part of the publics vocabulary. I appreciate you bringing to light these deceptions in a straightforward and articulate way.
I second your Marana'tha!

Sean Osborne said...

Thanks jmoll106, I very much appreciate that you got my point.

Put another way, just in case others need a little bit extra...

The Iranian Shi'a Twelvers, through the agency of their IRGC Qods Force/Hezbollah, have been doing what they do all over the world to hasten the arrival out of occultation of their islamic so-called "anointed one," the so-called "rightly guided 12th Imam;" their false messianic figure known as the al-Mahdi.

The West, Europe and North America primarily - but all over the world to be sure, the ruling elites are fully engaged within their very broad agenda to hasten the establishment of world governance and the false messianic figure and his pseudo-miracle working religious side-kick who will take complete control of it.

Scipio said...

Sean, this is good insight. Deception, helped/created by our deceived media, and exacerbated by an AC precursor, Obama, is a powerful 'drug' if you will. Good and evil are flipped in the very last days. It's almost like 'easy pickings' for the Adversary kingdom, as the deceived very abruptly dismiss the Christian point of view. Then again, I'm sure they got many opportunities to believe!

Yes, so unfortunate, so completely avoidable (with a simple prayer of acceptance), but so true. The world is being turned upon its head.

There is still great opportunity for witnessing the Gospel of Jesus Christ to the unredeemed until the 'times of the gentiles be fulfilled.'

These things clearly should inform us that time grows short before the door opens and is then shut.

While so much has happened thus far into 2016, it seems to have been relatively "quiet" for a bit. Seems like we are timed for another, more intense, birth pain? Thoughts?

Well, folks in SoCal have just received a joint warning (USGS and Clear Channel Outdoor Americas (CCOA)) regarding earthquake preparedness. Typical for April, I know, but the 'big one' is always overdue ain't it? Sad thing here is that even the USGS is deeply involved in the aforementioned conditioning agenda. The big this now for them is not real tectonic events, but man-made ones they claim can occur all across the USA. So, we got a global warming hoax and now a global "human-induced" quake hoax also. One headline reads: "Hazard Warnings Issued In 6 US States Due to Natural and Induced Earthquakes; Find Out If You're Safe"

Find out if I'm safe? I need a roll-eyes emoticon right about now.

Of course the latest biological catastrophe in the making is the Zika virus. Can't forget that one.

And then there's the extra and brand new discovery of a new "Planet Nine" which has a super-elongated orbit (20 times more distant than Neptune, and whose gravity will supposedly affect all planets in the inner parts of our solar system. Planet Nine is supposed to be 10-times the size of the Earth and orbits our Sun just once every 10,000 to 20,000 years. Of course Planet Nine's reported existence has been determined based solely on mathematical modeling and computer simulations. No one has actually laid eyes or a telescope on it yet.

One of these days real catastrophes will commence and in large numbers, so much so that the Bible says men will die of heart attacks induced by the sheer fear of what they seeing coming on the Earth. Now there's an unmistakable sign - hundreds of scientists keeling over from fear-induced strokes.

LOL, It reminds me of the Robert Preston song in Music Man..
"Harold:
Well, either you're closing your eyes
To a situation you do not wish to acknowledge
Or you are not aware of the caliber of disaster indicated
By the presence of a pool table in your community.
Ya got trouble, my friend, right here,
I say, trouble right here in River City. :)

Indeed. Reminds me of Agent Smith's declaration to Neo in The Matrix : "You hear that, Mr. Anderson? That is the sound of inevitability."

It seems to me that the powers of this world know that their time is short, and they are preparing multiple excuses for the unknowing masses when things start going south. A steady diet of misinformation creates the perfect environment for one figure to sweep on the scene....riding out to win many victories so to speak.

Sean Osborne said...

Here's a perfect example of what I am talking about.

The Congress of the United States of America decided to schedule an official fact-finding hearing regarding immigration, illegal immigration, "the "wall" and other vitally important national security and sovereignty issues related to immigration and illegal immigration.

Does the Congress, whom We The People elected into office, call upon any member of the natural born or naturalized citizenry of this nation, whose tax dollars are to be used to pay for this hearing and any remediation or fixes necessary, to testify on these critically important issues?

NO. Instead of an American citizen the United States Congress invites an Irishman, a foreigner and a looney-toon leftist musician from the rock group "U2" who goes by the name of "Bono" to testify.

At this hearing Bono lectures the American people how they are not doing enough, how we need to use our tax dollars to fund a "Marshall Plan" for the Middle East, and send our best comedians over to entertain the Islamic State in order to solve all issues related to the subject of this Congressional hearing.

That's bad enough. It is enough to infuriate any American in an election year - at least those who are paying attention. However, the bigger issue than this is hidden, and is best addressed by asking the question: Why did the Congress of the United States, and who specifically in the Congress, made the decision to invite a foreigner to testify on our national security issues?

We need to know who those Senators and Representatives are so they can be run out of Washington DC on a rail, and maybe even impeached and put in jail for dereliction of their sworn oaths and what we elected them to do and are paying their high-priced salaries to do.

Whose and what agenda are the Congress of the United States serving???

Psslm 29:2

When the righteous are in authority, the people rejoice;
But when a wicked man rules, the people groan.
Living in the Northeast, I do alot of groaning. When John Kerry was running for President the average Joe democrat is gonna vote for him and did vote for him, not based on his political voting record but only because he's a democrat.
I have had to rest in the fact that at least I can groan and know God is in control.
As for impeachment, I don't think our leadership has shown they have the will or internal fortitude to attempt impeachment. Look at the abuse Kenneth Starr took from the media during the Clinton impeachments.
Each generation forgets a little more of this countries founding and through apathy, and contentment let's it's liberty be taken away.
Sean, I know you know this all to well, I just wanted to voice my frustrations at the lunacy that takes place almost daily.
LOOKING UP! (Even as I go back to work.)

Sean Osborne said...

I hear ya! What I have noticed of late is that the political elites used to at least try to keep this stuff low key... now-a-days its just blatant in our face.

jmoll106 said...

Yeah, I think they are good at math and know they have the numbers now and feel they can do as they please.
Ah! But at least we know they left God out of the equation.

Sean,

What do you think of Jordan shutting down the musi bro headquarters?

Is that some kind of sign they don't have control? or are at least worried they can't control it? And does that speak to the level of influence the militants could have in Jordan?

Jordan has seemed stable through all the turmoil...

One last silly question, is Jordan part of the Psalm 83 named land? I will skim through my book tonight but I don't recall.

Sean Osborne said...

Ken,

It was an action taken by the Jordanian government which was predictable given that the governments in Egypt, Saudi Arabia and the UAE correctly branded the al-Ikhwan Al-Muslimuun (MB) as an international terrorist organization, and the fact that the government declared the group, which has 10,000 members in Jordan, to be illegal.

Jordan only recognizes a splinter group, the Muslim Brotherhood Society, as legal because it voices strong support to Jordan's monarchy.

Most of what is today western Jordan will become part of Israel following the complete fulfillment of Psalm 83 - which as a literal fulfillment occurs prior to Ezekiel 38/39 according Ezekiel 39:11-16.

jmoll106 said...

Sean,
Are these muslim brotherhood sects at all connected to the Czars/counselors that give advise to our administration?

Hey Sean, I just found the sitrep for my question. Thanks

Jmoll,

Yup, Islam is Islam is Islam.

I believe that there is one quick way to prove to Christians that all the prophecy and supernatural claims in the Bible are pure fiction:

Where is the Empty Tomb?

We have no record that the Christians of the first FOUR centuries venerated or even knew about the location of Jesus’ alleged tomb. If it existed, it would be the most important geographical location in the history of the Christian religion. It isn’t as if Jerusalem became a ghost town after 70 AD. People continued to live there. Are we to believe that Jesus’ Resurrection in circa 30 AD was accompanied by two massive earthquakes, the tearing down the middle of the curtain in the Holy of Holies, dead saints roaming the streets, appearances of the dead Jesus in Judea and Galilee to over FIVE HUNDRED eyewitnesses…and yet within a couple of decades, everyone, including Christians, forgot where this man was buried???

NOT believable.

We have no record that the Christians of the first four centuries venerated an empty tomb nor do they mention its location in any of their many writings. We can only guess why but I would bet that most probably it is because they knew that the Empty Tomb was a theological embellishment of the Gospel authors. Only after centuries had passed and the new religion had become thoroughly Gentile (pagan), did the Roman Empress enter Jerusalem in the fourth century and “discover” the Empty Tomb.

The Empty Tomb is a legend. It is not historical. Christians can hypothesize about how probable it is that Pilate would have allowed Jesus to be given a proper burial by the Sanhedrin; how improbable it is that first century Jews would have stolen/moved a recently dead body from its tomb, etc., etc., but the fact is that there is no record of any Christian, Jew, or Roman, in the first FOUR centuries of Christianity, having any clue as to the location of the greatest event to have ever occurred on planet earth.

It
is
a
tall
tale.

Sean Osborne said...

Gary,

(Just in case anyone else actually reads the nonsense from Gary, by way of an introduction - Gary is from California (little wonder), and his current life mission is to "escape from Christian fundamentalism.")

Number 1. God gave mankind free will. If you choose to not believe in Him, that it entirely up to you. However, at the end of your life there is a price to pay for rejecting God, and that price is eternal separation from Him.

Number 2. To attack those who do believe in Him (John 3:16) and are called by His Name (Christians) is a really, really bad idea. It is also a futile endeavor as no power int he universe can take away from Jesus Christ what has been bought by His Blood - namely any member of the Bride of Christ.

That said, your arrogance in thinking you have come up with the ultimate disproving of Christianity has been tried many times before. It failed every time, and your attempt is a failure as well.

The seed of your question came straight from the mind of Satan. To make matters worse, you have obviously swallowed Satan's lie hook, line and sinker. It's a lie that is technically no different than his telling Eve to eat of the forbidden fruit of the tree of knowledge. The fate of all those who willing reject God because they would rather choose to believe Satan's lies is quite horrific and it the start of a process that will lead to eternal condemnation from which there will be no escape.

The tomb in which Jesus body was laid after His crucifixion is clearly identified in Scripture as a tomb which belonged to a wealthy man named Joseph of Arimathea. ( I suggest you read: Matthew 27:57–60; Mark 15:42–46; Luke 23:50–53; and John 19:38–42.) Arimathea was a town in Judea (Luke 23:51). This naming is to clearly distinguish Joseph of Arimathea from all other Joseph's mention in Scripture. From the same Gospel of Luke we know he was a member of the Sanhedrin which had called for Rome to execute Jesus by crucifixion, but Joseph was opposed to the decision of the majority of the Sanhedrin (Luke 23:51 and Mark 15:43), and he believed that Jesus was the Son of God, the Messiah.

Joseph of Arimathea, accompanied by Nicodemus the Pharisee, went to Pilate to request Jesus body after the crucifixion. Their request was granted by Pilate. Joseph of Arimathea and Nicodemus then hurriedly put Jesus body in the tomb which the wealthy Joseph owned because sundown of the start of the Sabbath was quickly approaching. THIS PRECISELY FULFILLED THE PROPHECY OF ISAIAH 53:9 WHICH THE PROPHET HAS PRONOUNCED SEVERAL HUNDRED YEARS BEFORE. Neither Joseph of Arimathea nor Nicodemus were aware of Isaiah's prophecy at the time of Jesus crucifixion and death. The literal fulfillment of this prophecy confirmed Jesus' identity as the Messiah and Son of God. Jesus rose again the life everlasting from this tomb exactly as He had prophesied three days later.

This same tomb has been known throughout the centuries as The Tomb of the Holy Sepulchre. It can be found today at Mount Gareb in Jerusalem. Hundreds of thousands have visited this site known as the Church of the Holy Sepulchre.

You now have an opportunity to ensure your eternity or lose it. As i stated in the beginning of this, it is purely your choice to make.
