UPDATE 8 January 2015: I feel compelled to say again what I have stated many times in the past. The word Islam is an Arabic word and its meaning is submission. Period. That meaning is in the sense of total surrender to the alleged god of the submitters, and whom they refer to as Al-Lah (the God), their so-called prophet, plus the Qur'an and Ahadith (sayings attributed to him). In the Islamic perspective there are only two places in which human beings live on this earth. Dar al-Islam, the Land of Islam, and Dar al-Harb, the Land of War. Now you know why what happened in New York City on February 26, 1998; September 11, 2011, as well as in Washington DC and Shanksville PA on that same day; in Madrid, Spain on 11 March 2004; in London, UK on 7 July, 2005, and in Paris, France and several thousand other locales all over the world. These are not "terrorist acts" per se; they are instead acts of war, military assaults in the capital cities of non-Muslim countries which will continue to occur simply because Islam has been at war with everything non-Islamic since its inception 1,400 years ago. These acts of war will stop only when Islam ceases to exist.
One more thing to know. According to Islamic Law (Sharia Jurisprudence) no enemy can be attacked unless that enemy is warned ahead of time that the attack will occur. The warning of an attack is known as a fatwa. There is no such thing as a sneak attack in the Islamic or Qur'anic Concept of War. So why is it the governments of Western countries refuse to acknowledge these long established facts irregardless of how many acts of war are committed against them by Islam?
Exactly how many enemy Islamic soldiers, jihadists, are living right now in our cities, towns and rural communities? Do you know? Do you care?
6 January 2015: I have two point five (2.5) new and very interesting intel updates to write about in this update.
First off, it is now pretty much public and common knowledge that Israel's national intelligence apparatus has long had and still probably has the Iranian Hezbollah in Lebanon by the proverbial "family jewels." So thorough is the Israeli penetration and compromise of Hezbollah that one of the terrorist group's highest ranking officials, a man who was responsible for executing Iranian-Hezbollah revenge attacks against Israel over the untimely death-by-carbomb of their terrorist-in-chief Imad Fayez Mughniyeh, was himself an Israeli double agent. How awesome is that?! Unfortunately he was discovered. However, a good look into the unmasking of Israel's spy was openly reported in Lebanon's prime newspaper, The Daily Star, on 19 December 2014. In the report it is learned that Israel's spy, Mohammed Shawraba, was the chief of Hezbollah's, and thus Iran's IRGC Qods Force proxy, the External Operations Unit. Click on the link while its still working and you'll get a good look into Iranian terrorism on foreign soil and new intel that reveals Hezbollah to be a bloated proxy terrorist army filled to the gills with opportunists, careerists and big-time apostates from the purist Shi'a Twelver jihadi mantra the Iranians would like us to believe they have at their beck and call. Make no mistake, the coming prophetic war against Hezbollah will be violent and very bloody, but the outcome is prophetically assured precisely as it is written in Joshua 13.
And while we're on the subject of Iran, here's a tidbit from The Algemeiner.com which illustrates just how completely out of touch secular Judaism is with Israel's ancient prophets since this news article (Iran's Plan to Wreak Havoc on Israel With Missiles) is directly related to Jeremiah 49:34-39. Of course Jeremiah's soon to be fulfilled prophecy is completely ignored by the article as one would expect of secular media, Jewish or not.
Could these be the doomed soldiers under Gog of Magog's command per Ezekiel 38/39? If an article published yesterday on RCW.com's Compass blog is correct, we could very well be looking at an image of some of Gog of Magog's troops in a pre-invasion muster formation. The article is entitled "Coming Soon: The Russian Foreign Legion" and is well worth reading if you are as interested in looking at eschatological issues before they occur in the real-world as I am. Here is a what I found to be a rather chilling, goose-bump laden excerpt from the article which I think very accurately describes the ethnic make-up of Gog of Magog's military forces precisely as foretold by Ezekiel:
"Russia's military involvement in Eastern Ukraine currently consists of soldiers and mercenaries from far-flung federal republics such as Chechnya, as well as Ukrainian citizens who are ethnic Russians and wish to support Moscow's efforts to create pro-Russian political entities in the Donbas region. If Ukraine is to serve as a model of Russia's new mode of hybrid warfare, combining special forces and regular military personnel with "rebel" or "militia" formations in areas Moscow deems militarily important, it should be logical to assume that numerous volunteers could be recruited for other such missions. Which brings Russia to the next logical step in its emerging military strategy: allowing foreigners to serve in the Russian armed forces. The main criterium for such service is knowledge of the Russian language"Does that get you excited about Bible prophecy and eschatology in the very present here and now? If so, use the link, there's more for you to read!
2 January 2015: Hardly a day into the new year and there's intel aplenty indicating significant battles of ongoing wars in nations of the Middle East and North Africa with direct prophetic implications will soon be joined.
