Here is an informative article, posted by
Michael Snyder, on June 12, 2015
It brings critical news,
much of which you have probably not heard.
For months, people have been pointing to the second half of this year for
For some, the major concern is JADE HELM and the unprecedented
movement of military vehicles and equipment that we have been witnessing all
over the nation.
For others, the upcoming fourth blood moon and the end of the SHEMITAH CYCLE
are extremely significant events. Yet others are most concerned about
POLITICAL DEVELOPMENTS in Washington D.C. and at the United Nations.
To me, it does seem rather remarkable that we are seeing such a confluence of
economic, political and spiritual events coming together during the second half
of 2015. So is all of this leading up to something? Is our world about to
change in a fundamental way? Only time will tell. The following are seven key
events that are scheduled to happen by the end of September.
– It is expected that this is when the U.S. Supreme Court will reveal their
gay marriage decision. Most believe that the court will rule that gay
marriage (or “marriage equality”) is a constitutional right in all 50 states.
There are some that believe that this will be a major turning point for the
This has now already happened. The Supreme Court has ruled in favour of same-sex
2. JULY 15TH TO SEPTEMBER 15TH
– “Realistic military training exercises” known as “Jade Helm”
are scheduled to be conducted by the US Army in multiple US states from July 15
to September 15, 2015. More than 1,000 members of the US military will take
part in this exercise. The list of states slated to be involved in these drills
includes Texas, Colorado, New Mexico, Arizona, Nevada, Utah, California,
Mississippi and Florida.
News of the Jade Helm plans has spawned conspiracy theories and fears that
these exercises are a preparation for brutally “managing” social unrest in
the times ahead.
3. JULY 28TH
– On May 28th, Reuters reported that countries in the European Union were being
given a two month deadline to enact “bail-in” legislation. Any
nation that does not have “bail-in” legislation in place by that time will
face legal action from the European Commission. So why is the European
Union in such a rush to get this done? Are the top dogs in the EU anticipating
another great financial crisis eruption?
4. SEPTEMBER 13TH
This is Elul 29 on the Biblical calendar – it’s the last day of the
current 7-year Shemitah cycle, which is also the final day of the 49th year
leading into the year of Jubilee. (Every 7th year is a year of rest
Many are concerned about this date because we have seen giant stock market
crashes on the last day of the previous two 7-year Shemitah cycles.
On September 17th, 2001 (which was Elul 29 on the Biblical calendar), we
witnessed the greatest one day stock market crash in US history up until that
time. The Dow plummeted 683 points, and it was a record that held for exactly
seven years until the end of the next Shemitah cycle.
On September 29th, 2008 (which was also Elul 29 on the Biblical calendar), the
Dow fell by an astounding 777 points, which still today remains the greatest one
day stock market crash of all time.
Now we are approaching the end of another Shemitah year. So will the stock
market crash on September 13th, 2015? Well, no, because that day is a Sunday.
So I guarantee that the stock market will not crash on that particular day. But
as Jonathan Cahn has pointed out in his book on the Shemitah, sometimes stock
market crashes happen just before the end of the Shemitah year and sometimes
they happen within just a few weeks after the end of the Shemitah.
So we are not just looking at one particular date.
5. SEPTEMBER 15TH
– The 70th session of the UN General Assembly begins on this date. It is being
reported that France plans to introduce a resolution which would give formal
UN Security Council recognition to a PALESTINIAN STATE. Up until now, the US
has always been the one blocking such a resolution, but Barack Obama is
indicating that things may be much different this time around. (see more of
6. SEPTEMBER 25TH TO SEPTEMBER 27TH – The United Nations is going to
launch a brand NEW SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT AGENDA for the entire planet.
Some have called this “Agenda 21 on steroids.” But this new agenda is
not just about the environment. It also includes provisions regarding
economics, agriculture, education and gender equality.
On September 25th, the Pope will travel to New York to give a major
speech kicking off the UN conference where this new agenda will be
7. SEPTEMBER 28TH
– This is the date for the last of the four blood moons that fall on Biblical
festival dates during 2014 and 2015. This blood moon falls on the very
first day of Sukkot - The Feast of Tabernacles. It will be a
“super-moon,” and it will actually be visible in the city of Jerusalem. There
are many who dismiss the blood moon phenomenon, but we have seen similar
patterns before. For example, a similar pattern of eclipses happened just
before and just after the destruction of the Jewish temple by the Romans in 70
Perhaps none of this alarms you. But when you add everything above to the fact
that the elite definitely appear to be feverishly preparing for
something, a very alarming picture emerges.
For example, due to fears that a “natural disaster” could interrupt their
operations in New York, the New York Fed has been working hard to build up a
satellite office in Chicago.
What kind of “natural disaster” could possibly be so bad that it would cause the
entire New York Fed to shut down?
And NORAD (North American Aerospace Defence Command)
has decided to move back into the base deep inside Cheyenne Mountain after all
these years. The threat of an electro-magnetic pulse was the reason given for
By themselves, perhaps those moves would not be that big of a deal. But let’s
add all of the weird movements of military vehicles and equipment that we have
been witnessing lately. I included this list from Intellihub in a
previous article, but I believe that it bears repeating.
On March 13th, Intellihub founder Shepard Ambellas detailed photos and
documentation of nearly 40 US Army soldiers, wielding training rifles and
dressed in full combat gear, participating in an urban warfare style training
drill just outside the Texarkana Regional Airport perimeter.
In the middle of April, a report out of Big Springs, Texas revealed that a train
full of military equipment and over a dozen helicopters had arrived in the town
ahead of Jade Helm 2015.
Photographs taken in Corona, California a few days later added to the Jade
Helm speculation after they showed a MRAP full of what seemed to be US
Marines driving down the 1-15 freeway. “In broad daylight with not a care in the
On April 24th a shocking report on Intellihub News detailed armed troops
seen confronting angry protesters in a “professional news package” of riot
control training released by the military.
“A massive build-up, a lot of movement and its undeniable at this point,” read
the headline on April 25th after a convoy was seen in Oroville, California that
stretched as far as the eye could see.
Moving into May, photographs taken in Indiana showed a massive military convoy
heading down the freeway. The photos, taken by a concerned citizen, show the
convoy heading west on I-70 for reasons unknown.
Two days later, video footage, this time out of Texarkana, Arkansas, highlighted
a convoy of Humvees driving down the highway as well as a trainload of military
vehicles that was seen shortly after.
In mid-May, Intellihub reporter Alex Thomas published a detailed report
that confirmed that the military was indeed training to take on the American
people, this time in the form of domestic house to house raids.
The next day a new report, also by Alex Thomas, proved that Marines were
actually practicing for the internment of American citizens.
On May 18th, a train full of hundreds of military Humvees was spotted further
revealing the increased military build-up across the country leading into Jade
Helm 2015. The train was heading towards Cleveland for unknown reasons although
a possible connection to planned upcoming protests had been mentioned.
This past week a massive military war game simulation called Raider Focus was
announced. The war game will include the largest military convoy seen on the
roads of Colorado since World War II.
On May 23th, Intellihub News reported on pictures sent to ANP that show a
1/4 mile long military train convoy near the Colorado Wyoming border.
· Finally, a report
published this week detailed a stunning propaganda move by the military
involving a New Jersey school and the worship of the military on the streets
of America. “As parents, teachers, and students looked on with joy, Marines
from the Special-Purpose Marine Air Ground Task Force landed helicopters on the
baseball diamond of a New Jersey school.”
What does all of this mean?
It is hard to say. We have imperfect information, so it is difficult to come up
with perfect conclusions.
But what I will say is that I believe that the
second half of 2015 is going to be extremely significant. I believe
that events are about to start accelerating greatly, and I believe that life in
America is about to change dramatically.
FRENCH PROPOSAL FOR A
ESTABLISH A PALESTINIAN STATE
In September, the UN Security Council is likely to be voting on a UN resolution
to immediately establish a Palestinian state. At present, France is working on a
proposed resolution that would …
give formal UN Security Council recognition to the Palestinians;
would declare that a divided Jerusalem is the capital of both Israel and a
Palestinian state; and
would set the 1967 borders as the baseline for future negotiations which
would establish the final borders between the two nations.
It is being reported that France will submit this resolution for a vote after
the 70th session of the UN General Assembly begins on the 15th of September.
At this moment, 136 nations have already recognized a Palestinian state, but the
United States has always blocked recognition by the UN Security Council.
This time may be different though, because there are quite a few indications
that Barack Obama actually plans to back the French resolution in September. If
that happens, and the UN Security Council approves this resolution, it is going
to have enormous implications for all of us.
EU READY TO LAUNCH A
Here’s another September event:
JUNE 9. Worthy News – The EU will launch a "diplomatic attack against Israel" in
September that will surprise even the "pessimists in Jerusalem," a senior
Western diplomat told Ma'ariv, an Israeli daily newspaper.
"In the Security Council, in western capitals and at EU headquarters, they are
just waiting for the Iran deal to be signed and for it to be approved by the
The estimate is that the forced period of waiting will end in September. Then,
as the UN General Assembly opens, the signal will be given to start the
diplomatic attack against Israel.
Diplomatic sources in the western European capitals’ handling of the
Israeli-Palestinian conflict say that the EU has already prepared documents
which list a number of sanctions that will be levied against Israel in the
fields of trade, agriculture, science and culture if Jerusalem does not soon
present a diplomatic initiative that leads to a meaningful breakthrough toward a
solution to the conflict.
JUNE. Palestine’s fragile unity government split apart yesterday as the rift
between rival camps in the West Bank and Gaza came to a head.
The prime minister Rami Hamdallah handed his resignation to the Palestinian
Authority president Mahmoud Abbas in Ramallah, but Hamas officials in Gaza said
no one had consulted them about the cabinet stepping down.
Reports say Mahmoud Abbas is trying to put together
another government before September. A deeply divided Palestinian movement is
not one that encourages inter-national support!
IS AN EXISTENTIAL
THREAT TO ISRAEL!
April 2, after 12 years of turbulent negotiations, Iran and the P5+1, came up
“general agreement” in Lausanne, for a peaceful nuclear program and a lifting of
sanctions against Iran.
It was not a completed deal or treaty. It was merely a “framework” to reach a
deal. Barack Obama said, “There is much work to be done to hammer out the
details before June 30,” and voiced the hope that the Iranians would not
back out of the principles they had accepted in Lausanne.
SENATOR ‘ALARMED’ OVER
JUNE 16. Senator Bob Corker (R-TN), who is chairman of the Senate Foreign
Relations Committee, expressed concerns over reports that negotiators with Iran
are prepared to make far-reaching concessions.
According to the Reuters news agency, Corker wrote a letter to President
Barack Obama in which he said he was “alarmed” by the reports.
"It is breathtaking to see how far from your original goals and statements the
P5+1 have come during negotiations with Iran," wrote Corker.
IRAN DEAL GETS WORSE
DAY BY DAY
With the June 30 deadline for a nuclear deal between the world powers and Iran
quickly approaching, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu told his cabinet
that the deal looks worse with each passing day.
“NUCLEAR DEAL PAVES
WAY FOR ATOM BOMBS, AND WILL FILL IRAN'S COFFERS”
Netanyahu, speaking at the Home Command headquarters in the
midst of a nationwide drill simulating conflict on multiple fronts, said the
challenges facing Israel, including the threat of rocket and missile fire, are
Most of the missiles and rockets aimed at Israel have been supplied by Iran, he
said. “When speaking of Israelis' security I rely first and foremost on
ourselves, and proof of this is the agreement emerging between the world powers
and Iran,” he said. Not only will that deal “pave the way for Iran to have atom
bombs,” he said, but it will also give it an injection of billions of dollars.
OBAMA DEAL IN JEOPARDY
NUCLEAR FUEL STOCKPLE
The White House scrambled to try to limit the damage from reports from a U.N.
watchdog group that Iran’s nuclear fuel stockpiles are growing, revelations that
could put a nuclear accord with Tehran by this summer in doubt.
IRAN WILL NOT COMMIT
Iran's envoy to the UN nuclear agency has declined to commit to nuclear
transparency measures that were part of a preliminary deal Tehran and world
powers reached in April, deflecting US demands to implement such provisions.
“WE’RE ALL TOTALLY
PERPLEXED BY IRAN’S
State Department spokesperson Marie Harf said she was
"perplexed" by a New York Times story on Iran's 20% increase in nuclear fuel
over the past 18 months.
IRAN’S NUCLEAR GOALS
Former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani, has lamented that with the Obama
Administration now racing toward an ill-advised agreement with Tehran, a
nuclear-armed Iran seems inevitable.
“We went through these negotiations with Iran in the earlier part of this
decade, and they cheated for three years and were caught three times cheating,”
Giuliani noted. “There is no reason for Iran to have peaceful use of nuclear
power, they have plenty of energy. You have to be naive to think they want
nuclear power for peaceful uses.”
ISRAELIS AND SAUDIS
SECRET TALKS TO THWART
Since the beginning of 2014, representatives from Israel and Saudi Arabia have
had five secret meetings to discuss a common foe, Iran. The two countries have
come out of the closet by revealing this covert diplomacy at the Council on
Foreign Relations in Washington.
STRIKES WON’T END
JUNE 2. President Obama defended nuclear negotiations with Iran, arguing that
military action would not end the country’s controversial nuclear program. He
stated a deal with Tehran is the only way to ensure it does not develop a bomb.
Speaking with Israel’s Channel 2 television program “Uvda,” President Obama
insisted that the best way to stop Iran from obtaining a nuclear weapon was
through an agreement. Tehran is currently negotiating with the US and other
world powers over its program as the June 30th deadline quickly approaches.
“I can, I think, demonstrate, not based on any hope but on facts and evidence
and analysis, that the best way to prevent Iran from having a nuclear weapon is
a verifiable, tough agreement,”
he reportedly said,
according to the Israeli newspaper Ha’aretz.
The president went on to dismiss the idea that military action could destroy
Iran’s nuclear program and keep the country from permanently seeking a nuke.
Why is this astonishing? Because Obama is publicly eliminating any American
possibility that they will bomb Iran’s nuclear sites even if the deal in which
he has invested so much collapses.
OBAMA JUST TOSSED AWAY
LAST CARD ON IRAN’S
The interview, sent to air, is seen as an attempt by Obama to convince Israelis
that he will not sign onto a bad deal. Any final deal would require restrictions
on Iran’s nuclear program while lifting sanctions on the country.
Critics in the Israeli government, including Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu,
have consistently criticized the emerging deal with Iran as weak while insisting
that military action remains a viable option. Conservative political opponents
in the US have also aired the same concerns.
New reports have also raised anxiety about the emerging deal, with one stating
that Iran refused to grant access to the UN’s International Atomic Energy Agency
at several of its nuclear sites.
US REBUFFS ISRAEL’S
DEBKAfile Exclusive Report June 21, 2015
Israel’s National Security
Adviser Yossi Cohen was invited to join two top US officials for dinner in
Washington on June 15 to try and make Israel’s case for amending the disastrous
nuclear accord taking shape in Vienna between the six world powers and Iran,
before it was too late.
This meeting was hosted by
US National Security Adviser Susan Rice and senior US nuclear
negotiator Under-secretary of State Wendy Sherman.
The occasion was arranged
by CIA Director John Brennan at the end of his visit to Jerusalem in the first
week of June. He had come to offer senior Israelis, led by Prime Minister
Binyamin Netanyahu, a behind-the-scenes briefing on the provisions the Obama
administration had accepted for the final nuclear accord with Iran due to be
signed by June 30.
This briefing was greeted
in Jerusalem with shock and alarm.
Very few of the conditions
for a deal stipulated by the US upon embarking on the negotiations had survived:
Iran would continue to enrich uranium, be allowed to bar international
inspections of military facilities suspected of hosting nuclear research
activity (where were Obama's "intrusive inspections”?) and - Israeli officials
heard this for the first time - the Iranian UCF facility at Isfahan would be

the conversion of “yellow cake” to enriched nuclear material. They also
discovered that President Obama, who had originally promised the deal would
provide for “snapping sanctions back” in the event of violations,
had assured Tehran that once sanctions were lifted, they would not
Netanyahu asked Brennan
for time to digest the full extent of the Obama administration’s retreat in the
face of Iran’s nuclear aspirations. He then asked for his national security
adviser to be given a chance to propose changes that would allay some of
Brennan quickly set up a
date for Cohen to be received in Washington.
Our Washington sources
reveal that at the dinner in Washington, the Israeli official tried a new tack
with his hostesses, Rice and Sherman. On the understanding that the main clauses
of the nuclear accord had been finalised and gone past the stage of amendment,
he nonetheless suggested a number of insertions in the various clauses that
would make it a better deal for American as well as Israeli security.
Rice and Sherman politely
allowed him to finish talking and then turned his proposals down flat.
AS JUNE 30 DRAWS NEAR
According to Western and Iranian officials, Iran is trying to avoid detailed
commitments. The French are sticking to their tough line. And President Barack
faces a battle to sell any deal to a sceptical Congress. Despite those and other
obstacles, negotiators appear increasingly likely to clinch an historic deal to
restrict Iran's nuclear program for at least a decade in exchange for relief
ROUHANI TALKS PEACE
The Iranian regime is sending mixed signals these days. While its president,
Hassan Rouhani, speaks of moderation, its military, led by the high command of
the Revolutionary Guards, continues with its sabre-rattling.
In the meantime, Iran is busy furthering its exploits in promoting its Shi-ite
Islamic goals in the Middle East.
THE NUCLEAR DEAL WITH IRAN WAS SIGNED IN MID JULY
Understandably, Prime Minister Netanyahu
looked grim after hearing the news and vehemently disagreed that ‘every
pathway to a nuclear weapon has been cut off,’ saying that Israel is not bound
by this agreement and will continue to defend itself in the region. For Israel,
it is an existential issue and this deal pushes their back against the wall.
Even Saudi Arabia, who is no friend of Israel, is against the pact because the
Saudis do not want Iran to grow stronger in the region. There is also the
danger that the new arrangement could launch a nuclear arms race in the Middle
all, if Iran can enrich uranium, why shouldn’t Saudi Arabia?
reality, nothing in the deal requires Iran to dismantle their nuclear program
and it will not curb the ambitions of Iran to build a weapon with the intent to
attack Israel and the West.
They can keep their nuclear infrastructure and, after ten years (or even
sooner), could be ready to assemble a weapon quickly. Sanctions limited Iran’s
ability to acquire such a weapon, but lifted sanctions will clear the way for
them to prosper and build, not at nuclear sites (which are the only ones that
may be inspected after applying for a visit and then a 24 day wait), but perhaps
at military sites and other undeclared locations which are not open to
inspection. Tragically, this ghastly agreement brings Iran into the fold of the
international community, gives it legitimacy,
release billions of dollars which will certainly be used to fund terrorism. This
is especially dangerous for Israel.
IRANIAN GUARDS READY TO
IN SYRIA TO SAVE ASSAD
JUNE 3. Tehran is believed
to be preparing to dispatch a substantial Revolutionary Guards (IRGC)
special operations unit to Syria to tackle the separate rebel, and ISIS,
advances closing in on the Assad regime, Western and Arab intelligence sources
They say the Syrian army is already setting aside an area in northern Syria
for the Iranian troops to take up position.
If this happens, our military sources note that it would be the Revolutionary
Guards first direct intervention in the nearly five-year Syrian
war. Up until now, Tehran has carefully avoided putting Iranian
boots on the ground in both Syria and Iraq.
The only place where Iranian forces are directly engaged in battle is at Iraq’s
main refinery town of Baiji, where small infantry and artillery units have been
trying - without success thus far - to dislodge ISIS forces from the refinery
In the other Syrian and Iraqi war arenas – and elsewhere - Tehran follows the
practice of using local Shi’ite militias as surrogates to fight its wars,
providing them with training and arms.
The Guards have also brought Shi’ite militias over from Pakistan and
That Tehran is about to change course to save Bashar Assad was indicated
in a surprise statement on June 2 by General Qassem Soleimani, the
supreme commander of Iranian forces fighting outside the country.
After urgent consultations in Damascus with President Assad and his military
chiefs, the Iranian general said enigmatically that “major developments”
are to be expected in Syria “in the next few days.”
Another source quotes him more fully as saying: “In the next few days,
the world will be pleasantly surprised [by the arrangements]
we [the IRGC] working with Syrian military commanders are currently preparing."
SHIPMENTS OF ARMS,
CASH TO TALIBAN
According to The Wall Street Journal, which cited Afghan and Western
officials in its report, Iran's motivations for stepping up support for the
militants are to prevent ISIS from gaining a foothold in Afghanistan and
providing a check on US influence ahead of the planned withdrawal of most
American troops by the end of 2016.
THIS IS IRAN NOW!
According to the organization Iran Human Rights, the Iranian
regime has executed a prisoner every two hours this month.
"So far in 2015, more than 560 have been executed, and we are just in the
first half of the year... What we are witnessing today is not so much different
from what ISIS is doing. The difference is that the Iranian authorities do it in
a more controlled manner, and represent a country which is a full member of the
international community with good diplomatic relations with the West." -

ISIS HAS VICTORIES
ISIS’ FRIGHTENING ARSENAL:
ISIS weapons show the black-clad militants are developing an arsenal of
sophisticated arms, and Kurdish fighters told FoxNews.com they fear the
terrorist force's expanding manufacturing capability is making it more
formidable by the day.
ISIL THREATENS WORLD’S
JUNE 1. Last week, thick black smoke rising from the Baiji oil refinery in Iraq
could be seen as far away as Baghdad after fighters from ISIS set fire to the
enormous processing plant about 100 miles north of the capital.
The decision to torch the refinery, which once produced around a third of Iraq’s
domestic fuel supplies, was made as the insurgents prepared to pull out of Baiji,
which they captured in June last year, in a victory that sent shock waves across
world oil markets.
The problem for the US and the rest of the industrialised world is that the
Middle East controls 60% of proven oil reserves and with it the keys to
the global economy.
Should ISIS capture a major oil field in Iraq, or overwhelming the government,
the consequences for energy markets and the financial system would be
potentially catastrophic. — Worthy News
RADIOACTIVE MATERIAL TO BUILD WMD
According to the Australian Foreign Minister, Julie Bishop, NATO has expressed
deep concerns about ISIS which has been capturing radioactive material with a
view to building weapons of mass destruction.
“This is really worrying,” she said. “When they swept
across territory in Syria and Iraq, the insurgents did not just clear out the
cash from local banks. ISIS seized
materials from research centres and hospitals that would normally only be
available to governments.”
ISIS is believed to be weaponising poisonous gases
such as chlorine.
The growing concerns about ISIS’s development of weapons of mass destruction
come at a time when experts fear the militant group will be “more active than
ever” to mark the start of Ramadan and the one-year anniversary of its
declaration of a “caliphate.”

ISIS SEIZES SIRTE
POWER PLANT IN WESTERN LIBYA
Forces loyal to the self-declared government in Tripoli Tuesday relinquished to
ISIS the power plant west of the Libyan city of Sirte (Sidra), which supplies
electricity to the central and western parts of the country. Three soldiers were
killed in the attack.
Earlier this year, the Islamists exploited the chaos in Libya to overrun most of
Muammar Qaddafi's home town, massacre Egyptian and Ethiopian Christians, and
seize oil fields in the West. Libya's internationally recognized government has
been working out of the eastern town of Benghazi with the support of Egypt and
other Arab allies.
TERRORISTS BLOW UP GAS
PIPELINE IN SINAI
MAY 31. Unidentified terrorists blew up the natural gas pipeline in the Sinai
once again, cutting off supplies to factories.
The Islamic State (ISIS) and ISIS-linked terrorists have made inroads in the
Sinai, where the Egyptian regime has lost hundreds of soldiers and policemen in
failed attempts to maintain stability in the region.
Egyptian media have reported that the ISIS branch in the Sinai “threatened to
strike the Eilat Port, following coordination with the Islamic State’s wing in
Gaza,” where Hamas is trying to retain control.
The Islamic State also has made inroads in Asia as its threat to expand its
radical Islamic terrorist empire becomes more real.

US BOMBERS HOLD FIRE
ON I.S. TARGETS
Nearly 75% of US bombing runs targeting the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria
returned to base without firing any weapons in the first four months of 2015,
holding their fire mainly because of a lack of ground intelligence and raising
questions about President Obama's key tactic in pushing back an enemy that
continues to expand its territory in the war zone.

US-backed Kurdish fighters have taken control of a strategic town on the
Syria-Turkey border Monday, forcing ISIS militants to flee, and cutting off a

The Washington Post
reported that the main Kurdish
fighting force, known as the YPG, backed by affiliated Syrian rebels, had
captured the town of Tal Abyad, claiming control of the town centre. The Post
also reported that the advancing forces had cut off ISIS’ escape route from the

this year and they met up and he was introduced to an ISIS fighter who had
killed many Christians. I mean that's a horrible situation, and admittedly, he
was probably on guard," Gina Fadely, director of Youth With A Mission Frontier
Missions, Inc. (YWAM), said during a recent appearance on The Voice of the
Martyrs Radio Network.
told this YWAM leader that he had begun having dreams of this man in white who
came to him and said, ‘You are killing my people.’ And he started to feel really
sick and uneasy about what he was doing,” Fadely continued. “The fighter said
just before he killed one Christian, the man said, ‘I know you will kill me, but
I give to you my Bible.’ The Christian was killed and this ISIS fighter actually
took the Bible and began to read it. In another dream, Jesus asked him to follow
him and he was now asking to become a follower of Christ and to be discipled.”

INDIAN PM NARENDRA
MODI TO VISIT ISRAEL
India’s Prime Minister Narendra Modi will visit Israel, though no firm date has
been set, his Foreign Minister Sushma Swaraj said at a recent press conference,
the Indian media reported.
“As far as the prime minister’s visit is concerned, he will travel to Israel. No
dates have been finalized. It will take place as per mutually convenient dates,”
the Hindustan Times reported.
Swaraj said that she too would visit “Israel, Palestine and Jordan” this year,
but also gave no exact dates.
According to the paper, the Indian and Israeli foreign ministries will hold a
consultation in July to discuss the Swaraj visit. The paper speculated that a
Modi visit could come in November.
The visit of Modi would be the first ever visit to Israel by an Indian prime
Then prime minister Ariel Sharon was the first Israeli prime minister to visit
India, doing so in 2003. He was forced, however, to cut his visit short after
three days because of a terrorist attack in Israel.
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu met with Modi on the sidelines of the UN
General Assembly meeting in September, and said the “sky’s the limit” in
Israeli-Indian ties. This was the first meeting between the prime ministers of
the two countries since Sharon’s visit. Netanyahu invited him to Israel at the

India one of the leading markets for Israeli arms and military technology.
There was some speculation in December that Swaraj, who served from 2006 to 2009
as chairwoman of the Indo-Israeli Parliamentary Friendship Group, would visit
Israel in January, but that visit never materialized.
In December The Hindu daily reported that India was considering changing
its automatic support for the Palestinians at the UN, and abstaining on votes
regarding Israel and the Palestinians, rather than voting automatically for the

SYRIAN KURDS ROLL
BACK ISLAMIC STATE IN NORTHEAST
MAY 30. Kurdish female fighters of the YPG prepare for battle against Islamic
State militants near the village of Mabrouka, Syria.
contrast to the Iraqi army’s failures, Kurdish fighters in Syria are on the
march against Islamic State, capturing towns and villages in an oil-rich swath
of the country’s northeast under the cover of US-led airstrikes.
As the Kurds close in on Tel Abyad, a commercial centre on the Turkish border,
their advance highlights the importance of combining airstrikes with the
presence of a cohesive and motivated ally on the ground — so absent in Iraq.
In Syria, split mostly between al-Qa’ida-style militants and forces loyal to
President Bashar al-Assad, the US has found a reliable partner in the country’s
main Kurdish fighting force, known as the YPG. They are moderate, mostly secular
fighters, driven by revolutionary fervour and deep conviction in their cause.
Since the beginning of the month, they have wrested back more than 200
Kurdish and Christian towns, as well as strategic mountains seized by ISIS.
Along the way, they have picked up ammunition, weapons and vehicles left behind
by Islamic State.
The push has got them closer to Tel Abyad, an avenue for commerce through which
ISIS smuggles foreign fighters and sells black-market oil. The city is also a
key link between Turkey and the northern Syrian city of Raqqa, Islamic State’s
de facto capital.
“The YPG doesn’t lack a will to fight, like soldiers in the Syrian army, or
soldiers in the Iraqi army who mostly fight for a salary,” said Vladimir van
Wilgenburg, an analyst at the Jamestown Foundation in Washington.
“The YPG is much more motivated than other forces in the region, and doesn’t
lack cohesion and doesn’t have co-ordination problems. The YPG is quite
ideological, while the Syrian and Iraqi army aren’t very well motivated.”
The Iraqi military has struggled to make gains after its humiliating defeats
last year, when it virtually crumbled in the face of the militant onslaught in
northern Iraq. Poor training, corruption and sectarian politics have all been
cited as reasons for the military’s shortcomings. The US spent billions of
dollars training Iraqi forces from 2003 to 2011, but much of that training did
not reach the foot soldiers battling Islamic State.
Last week, US Defence Secretary Ashton Carter criticised the Iraqi army
following the fall of Ramadi, the strategic capital of the country’s
largest Sunni province of Anbar, saying the Iraqi military lacked the “will to
Within days, Islamic State fighters had also dealt a major blow to Assad’s
forces in Syria, seizing the historic city of Palmyra, a crossroads
linking Damascus with territory to the east and west. In images reminiscent of
the Iraqi defeat in Ramadi, Syrian soldiers fled the city, leaving behind tanks
By contrast, Syria’s Kurds have shown remarkable cohesiveness. Spurred by
ideology and nationalistic fervour, they fought ferociously to claw back
territory after Islamic State captured Kobane and dozens of surrounding
villages last year. The ISIS descent on Kobane led the US to widen its air
campaign from Iraq into Syria to assist the Kurds.
Despite the fact that ISIS had heavy weapons and far more fighters, the Kurds
resisted the offensive on Kobane, conducting fierce street battles until the US
air-dropped weapons and intensified the airstrikes. In January, the YPG
liberated Kobane and began a wide offensive in which it regained much of the
territory it had lost.
On May 6, the Kurdish fighters and their allies launched an offensive from the
northeastern province of Hassakeh and in less than three weeks captured the
strategic Abdul-Aziz mountain along with 221 Kurdish and Christian villages
that were held by Islamic State.
The mountain had been a key militant base for sending vehicles rigged with
explosives into Kurdish areas, said Ghalia Nehme, a member of the Kurdish
Women’s Protection Units.
“The airstrikes were a major help for the fast advance,” Nehme said, adding that
1,100 sq km had been taken from Islamic State over the past three weeks.
Nasser Haj Mansour, a defence official in Syria’s Kurdish region, said the YPG
was in close contact with the US-led coalition and sometimes asked for
airstrikes targeting Islamic State positions after its fighters located them.
“Warplanes are not enough to liberate a region, but without the air force it
will be more difficult,” said Haj Mansour. “The push won’t be as easy and fast.”
The Kurds are now closing in on Tel Abyad, with fighters moving east from Kobane
and west from Hassakeh — an offensive that, if successful, would open a direct
line between Kurdish-controlled territory along the border with Turkey. Such a
move is likely to anger Turkey, which sees the YPG as part of the Kurdish PKK
movement that has waged an insurgency in southeast Turkey.
“Tel Abyad is going to be the next target. We want to strangle Da’ish,” (ISIS),
said Nawaf Khalil, a Kurdish official who heads the Europe-based Centre for
After Tel Abyad, Raqqa is in the sights.
“There is no doubt that the liberation of Tel Abyad will be the pass for the
liberation of Raqqa,” said Idriss Naasan, a Kurdish official in Kobane.

JORDAN FEARS IMMINENT
June 18. Jordan is preparing for
invasions by Islamic terror groups by arming Bedouins in Syria and Iraq to
prevent incursions, reports say.
Jordan is gearing up for a possible invasion by Islamic terror groups. According
to reports, King Abdullah II, on a tour this week of border areas near Iraq and
Syria, offered to arm Bedouin tribes living in those areas - on both sides of
the border - to fight against Islamic State and Jabhat al-Nusra,
which threaten Jordan from the east and north.
Abdullah's concern has been growing in recent weeks, reports said, over the fact
that after 3,000 bombing raids by the US and its allies, ISIS has not been
beaten back – and seems only to get stronger.
With the organization solidifying its rule in much of Iraq and Syria. In line
with its pledge to expand its “Islamic Caliphate” to the entire world, starting
with the Muslim countries, Abdullah believes that Jordan is high up on ISIS's
list for an attempted takeover.
Meanwhile, Jordan faces another danger from the north.
The Al-Nusra group, a fundamentalist organization associated with
Al-Qaeda, controls much of the area on the other side of the Syrian border.
This group, too, has expansionist plans, and the open frontier between Syria and
Jordan is almost an open invitation to incursions by the group.
During a tour of the border areas on June 15, Abdullah stated that it was
Jordan's obligation “to assist Arab tribes in Iraq and Syria,” hinting that he
would rely on the tribes as a first line of defense against incursions by
ISIS and Al-Nusra.
The tribes living on both sides of the border have close ties, and Abdullah
believes that they would aggressively defend their areas from invasion by the
Islamist groups, reports said.
TURKISH LEADERS: “WE
TO LIBERATE JERUSALEM”
Recep Tayyip Erdogan and Turkish Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoglu spoke of their
desire to conquer Jerusalem and to re-establish the Ottoman Empire,
during the inauguration ceremony of the country’s 55th airport in Hakkari
“By Allah’s will, Jerusalem belongs to the Kurds, the Turks, the Arabs, and to
all Muslims,” Davutoglu declared. “And as our forefathers fought side by side
at Gallipoli and just as our forefathers went together to liberate Jerusalem
with Saladin, we will march on the same path to liberate Jerusalem. The Turkish
government does not differentiate from East to West. We intend to put together
all of the regions of our nations and we will bring these regions back
Erdogan’s speech was even more grandiose. ...
He proclaimed himself to be the reincarnation of Saladin, who will kick
whom he perceives to be the modern day crusaders out of Jerusalem by uniting the
Muslim world behind him by hinting at the re-establishment of the Ottoman
“I am sure that the great commander Saladin is bringing together all of the
peoples of the Middle East into the one army that defeated the Crusaders.
Saladin is currently witnessing what we are doing here spiritually. I was in
his spiritual presence and I am addressing him here in Hakkari with the mighty
men, be it eastern, brave south-eastern, valiant Anatolian in Old Turkey.”
“Jerusalem is for the Muslims and not for Israel,”
Erdogan added. “Why should we continue to be friends with those that stomped
their boots on the Temple Mount? They insist that we have to be friends? I
say, we will not.”
Erdogan promised to follow in Saladin’s footsteps: “They all promise you O
Saladin, if you united the brothers in the Middle East, so will we. Saladin
said, ‘Jerusalem is not for the Crusaders.’ Saladin witnessed this. Allah
witnesses this. One people, one flag, one nation and one state!”

way to try and secure a victory at the polls by calling for the “liberation”
TURKISH VOTERS SNUB
JUNE 7, 2015. The Justice and Development Party (AKP) of Recep Tayyip Erdogan
has lost its majority in Turkey’s elections, putting the brakes on the
president’s plan to consolidate power.
The AKP won 41%, leaving it 18 seats short of single-party rule - the first time
in 13 years. The CHP, a secularist, social-democrat faction, came second with
25%, followed by the nationalist MHP on 16 points.
The Kurdish minority party, the HDP, also entered parliament with 13%. It did
so despite being formed just three years ago and despite being associated with
the Kurdish separatist movement, the PKK. (The Turkish constitution gives the
parties 45 days to form a new government.)
ALL CHURCHES IN
HAVE MUSLIM SPIES IN
JUNE 16. Jewish author Avi Lipkin warns that "all" churches in America have been
infiltrated by Muslim spies who frequently pretend to have found Christ but are
really looking to provide intelligence to radical Muslims who will try to kill
all Jews and Christians when jihad is ordered upon the US.
Lipkin, who has authored a number of books critical of radical Islam, frequently
speaks at Christian churches around the US to emphasize the importance of unity
between the Jewish and Christian communities in standing against the advance of
radical Islam. Lipkin, who immigrated from New York to Israel in 1968, spoke at
this week's Future Conference held at Skyline Church in San Diego, where he
proclaimed that the world is facing the "most interesting" biblical period since
the days of Jesus Christ and contended that the coming of the Messiah is just
around the corner.
"We are realizing with our own very eyes fulfilment of more Bible prophecy than
in any other generation in 2,000 years," Lipkin asserted. "I believe the Messiah
is in our time and I believe Israel will realize its borders."

MOHAMMED MORSI DEATH
UPHELD BY EGYPTIAN
An Egyptian court has upheld the death sentence by hanging, imposed on ousted
ex-President Mohammed Morsi over a mass jailbreak. Morsi escaped from Wadi
Natroun prison in January 2011 and was accused of colluding with foreign
militants in a plot to free Islamists during mass prison breaks.
The sentence was initially passed in May, but was confirmed after consultation
with Egypt's highest religious figure, the Grand Mufti. The death sentences of
five other leading members of the Muslim Brotherhood, including its supreme
guide Mohammed Badie, were also upheld.
The verdict is subject to appeal. 101 other defendants were also sentenced to
death in absentia. The 2011 uprising brought an end to Hosni Mubarak's 30-year
rule and Morsi was elected president a year later.
He was deposed by the army in July 2013 following mass street protests against
his rule, and he is already serving a 20-year jail term for ordering the arrest
and torture of demonstrators.

SLAUGHTERS CHRISTIAN ETHIOPIANS
Just two months after the Islamic State [IS] published a video depicting its
members slaughtering 21 Coptic Christians in Libya, on Sunday, April 19, the
jihadi Islamic group released another video of more Christians in Libya --
approximately 30 Ethiopians -- disparagingly referred to by an IS
spokesman as "worshippers of the cross" -- being butchered for not paying
jizya, extortion money demanded of the “People of the Book” who refuse to
convert to Islam, according to Koran 9:29.
Some of the Christians were shot execution-style in the back of their heads, the
others had their heads carved off, like the Copts before them.
The IS spokesman further addressed "Christians everywhere": We say to Christians
everywhere, the Islamic State will expand, with Allah's permission. And it will
reach you even if you are in fortified strongholds. So whoever enters Islam will
have security, and whoever accepts the Dhimmah contract [subjugated,
third-class treatment and social status] will have security. But whoever refuses
will see nothing from us but the edge of a spear. The men will be killed and the
children will be enslaved, and their wealth will be taken as booty. This is the
judgment of Allah and His Messenger.
In a statement, the Coptic Christian Church of Egypt pointed out that the
Ethiopian martyrs, like the 21 Copts before them, were "murdered purely for
refusing to renounce their faith."

Inside the Islamic State’s realm, the paper testifying that you have ‘repented’

just to be safe. It can mean the difference between life and death.
Disasters are happening around the world, every week, bringing untold suffering
to millions. Why? Is it because the nations are becoming more evil. Partly that
is true. But the main reason I believe, is that God is sending warning after
warning, of things that are to come upon earth so that they may repent before
the day of wrath begins. God says:
“If I shut up the heavens and there is no rain, or if I
command the locust to devour the land, or if I send pestilence among My people,
and My people who are called by My Name humble themselves and
pray, and seek My Face and turn from their wicked ways, then I
will hear from heaven, will forgive their sin and heal their land’.”(2
