MM#121. WARS UNTIL THE END. Feb-March 2015
WARS UNTIL THE END!
END OF IT WILL COME LIKE A FLOOD.
THERE WILL BE WAR UNTIL THE END.
DESOLATIONS HAVE BEEN DECREED.
“You will be hearing of wars and rumours of wars, but see to
it that you do not become frightened.
All these things must happen first, but the end is
not yet. Nation will rise against nation, and kingdom
against kingdom, and there will be famines, pestilences, and
earthquakes in various places. All these things
are the beginning of birth-pains.” -Y’shua the Messiah
(Matthew 24:6, 8)
“Proclaim this among the
nations: Prepare for war! Rouse the warriors!
Let all the men of war draw
near! Let them come up to attack!” (Joel 3:9)
Yes, we are hearing, indeed too much, about the current wars
of the 21st century. And it’s not nice! But these are the
days of which our Master warned. And He also said:
“Do not be terrified;
for these things must happen first.” (Luke 21:9)
Many Christians and Jews around the world are being
terrorised and persecuted. Millions are caught up in the
thick of this battle. Many have been slain for their faith
People at large are terrified by various types of disasters,
insecurity, and social and financial pressures.
Citizens in erstwhile relatively peaceful counties are now
in fear of the growing global terrorism, and because of the
fearful “writings on the wall.” And there is a growing
apprehension that World War is ahead.

The event's organizer, veteran German diplomat Wolfgang
Ischinger, said the meeting would discuss what he called an
unprecedented upsurge in global crises over the past year,
and the inability of the international community to tackle
them. "The international order is collapsing right now,"
"We live in the age of the collapse of order. In this
vacuum everyone is testing how far he can go: Putin in
Ukraine, China against Japan, Iran in the nuclear dispute,
the jihadists with the horrible things they do.
"There is a massive need for ‘global governance.’
Really, the UN Security Council should be resolving a crisis
each week, like Iraq and Syria. Instead the council is
blocked and so is any will to reform."

‘Wake up, sleeper! Arise from the dead’.” (Ephesians 5:14)

you to wake up from sleep. For salvation is nearer to us now
than when we first believed” (Romans 13:11)
quickly ISIS has dominated the world’s attention over the
past year. In 2014, ISIS conquered territory in Syria and
Iraq which approximates the territory of the ancient
Nineveh, the capital of Assyria, and the Tower of Babel,
were built by Nimrod, the great grandson of Noah, about 4800
BC. (Gen 10:11) In 722 BC, the king of Assyria, Shalmaneser
conquered the northern kingdom of Israel (Samaria) and took
the people captive into Assyria. (2 Kings 17:5-6).
Later, in about 701 BC, the notorious king of Nineveh,
Sennacherub, began an invasion of the southern kingdom,
Judah, with the intention of taking Jerusalem. King Hezekiah
sought the LORD, and the reply came:
“YHWH says concerning the king of Assyria: ‘He will not come
to this city or shoot an arrow here; and he will not come
before it with a shield or throw up a siege ramp against it.
He will return by the same way that he came, and he shall
not come to this city,’ declares YHWH. ‘For I will defend
this city to save it for My own sake, and for My servant
David's sake.’ “Then it happened that night that the angel
of YHWH went out and struck 185,000 in the camp of the
Assyrians; and when men rose early in the morning, they saw,
all of them were dead. So Sennacherib king of Assyria
departed and returned home, and lived at Nineveh. “It came
about as he was worshiping in the house of Nisroch his god,
that Adrammelech and Sharezer killed him with the sword; and
they escaped into the land of Ararat. And Esarhaddon his son
became king in his place.” (2 Kings 19:32-37)
ACROSS SWATHES OF TERRITORY
Over the past year, 2014, we all, including many Muslims,
have been shocked and alarmed by the agenda and brutal
methods of the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria. The
group had its beginning as part of al-Qaida in Iraq. Before
moving into Syria to contest the Bashar Assad regime, it
built up a base in Raqqa, Syria, and then widened its
strategy. Under its new banner it began a sweeping attack
across the north-East of Syria, and across the north of
Iraq. Having built up a reputation of being extremely
brutal, it had widespread success as it moved from city to
city. Defending soldiers, as well as civilians, simply
dropped their arms and fled.
Flushed with victory, they captured large amounts of weapons
and armoury, and huge amounts of cash from banks.
Then ISIS began a pogrom of crucifying or beheading enemies.
Captured soldiers were handcuffed and led in file to desert
areas where they were shot.
captured territory — the RED areas
Later in the year, ISIS proclaimed the establishment of an
Islamic State – a caliphate in the captured areas of
Syria and Iraq. Their ultimate goal is a global caliphate
in line with Islamic prophetic writings.
One of ISIS’ achievements was the capture of the city of
MOSUL (the ancient Nineveh, the capital of the Assyrians in
Jonah’s time), and also Tikrit, in northern Iraq.
In MOSUL, Iraqi soldiers dropped their weapons and fled.
ISIS slaughtered hundreds of the soldiers they captured, and
then they took over their stocks of weapons, including
They forced the local population to convert to the ISIS’
Islamic line, on the pain of death. Many civilians were
killed, as millions fled from this ferocious onslaught.
ISIS has not hidden its agenda which includes capturing and
bringing Saudi Arabia, Jordan and Israel into their
caliphate. ISIS soldiers in North Iraq have spoken frankly
to a reporter about their intention of killing hundreds of
millions of infidels.
ISIS is opposed to all non-Muslims as well as to
Shi’ite Muslims, and to any Muslim who does not give
allegiance to the Islamic Caliphate.
THE ISLAMIC STATE ARMY COULD HAVE
200,000 WAR FIGHTERS
NOV 16. The Islamic State has recruited an army far larger
than previously estimated, according to Fuad Hussein,
the chief of staff of the Kurdish President Massoud Barzani.
said the ability of ISIS to attack on many fronts in Iraq
and Syria at the same time shows that the number of fighters
is at least 200,000 -- much bigger than foreign intelligence
estimates of up to 31,000 men. Hussein estimates that
ISIS rules 1/3 of IRAQ and 1/3 of SYRIA with a population
of 10 to 12 million living in an area of 250,000 sq. km.
-- about the same size as Great Britain.
This gives the jihadis a large pool of potential
UP TO 700 TURKISH NATIONALS HAVE JOINED
Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu says up to 700
Turkish nationals have joined the Islamic State, sounding
the alarm over the risk of attacks inside Turkey if the
terrorists return home. He added that Turkey had barred
entry to around 7,250 people from abroad who were planning
to join ISIS, and said 1,160 would-be terrorists were
MANY MILITANT GROUPS SWEAR ALLEGIANCE
TO ISLAMIC STATE
Islamic State has won declarations of allegiance or support
from militant groups across the world, including the
Pakistan Taliban; the brutal Boko Haram
in Nigeria, and militants among
Lebanon’s Sunni population.
Tunisia, despite a recent democratic
election, is the source of more foreign fighters joining
Islamic State than any other country. More than 3000 have
joined so far. Militant groups in Libya as well as Algeria
have also sworn allegiance to Islamic State, proving their
credentials by carrying out beheadings.
In Egypt, President el-Sisi declared a state of emergency in
Sinai following beheadings of soldiers by Ansar Bayt
al-Maqdis militants, who have also pledged loyalty
to Islamic State leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi.
ISLAMIC STATE CALLS ON SUPPORTERS
TO KILL AT RANDOM
September, the Islamic State called on its supporters to
kill soldiers and civilians in Australia, the US and Europe.
The call which was placed on the web instructed: "If you
can kill an American or European infidel – especially the
spiteful and cursed French – or an Australian or a Canadian,
or any other disbeliever from the infidel fighters ... then
rely upon God and kill them in any way possible. Do not
consult with anyone and do not seek anyone's advice. Whether
they are civilian or military, the same ruling applies.”
Since then there have been random attacks on individuals, in
Australia, Canada and New York, and elsewhere.
September, police say a man fired from a food processing
plant in an Oklahoma suburb and then beheaded a woman with a
knife. He was then attacking another worker when he was shot
and wounded by the owner of the company.
In late January, ISIS capped a month of atrocities by
beheading a second Japanese hostage., Kenjo Goto, a 47-year
old journalist. In January alone, the Islamists are known
to have killed at least 70 people in ten European and
Middle East countries.
This is a modest estimate since exact figures are not
available everywhere - like in Saudi Arabia and Egypt. ISIS
terrorists trailed their horror through France, Spain,
Belgium, Iraq, Saudi Arabia, Syria, Jordan, Egypt and Libya.
THE KURDS, BACKED BY US AIR STRIKES,
WIN THE BATTLE FOR KOBANE

Kurdish forces take control of the destroyed city.
the end of January, Kurdish forces celebrated victory after
a four-month-long battle to wrest back control of the border
town of Kobane from the Islamic State.
The Kurdish fighters, backed by the air power of a US-led
coalition — dealt Islamic State a humiliating battlefield
The Syrian Kurdish victory stemmed from a combination of
guerrilla tactics, the assistance of Iraqi Kurdistan’s
Peshmerga forces, and the US airstrikes. Since September,
coalition jets completed more than 700 strikes that helped
kill more than 2000 jihadists, according to US Central
Command. ISIS conceded defeat in Kobane but said it would
Kobane was not strategically important to the US, but it is
awfully important to ISIS. That is where Islamic State
leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi chose to make a stand – a stand
that ended in a huge defeat.
Early in the conflict, the Kurdish fighters were outnumbered
and outgunned, so they evacuated the villages surrounding
Kobane, and pushed thousands of people north towards the
Syria-Turkey border. The wave of refugees fleeing to Turkey
was the largest single movement of refugees since the Syrian
war began in 2011.
The fighters and volunteers, both men and women, who
remained, dug trenches and planted bombs in empty buildings.
The Syrian Kurdish fighters were boosted by recruits, arms
and training from their affiliate, the Kurdistan Workers
Party (PKK), which is listed as a terror organisation in the
US and Turkey.
In late September, the US-led coalition had begun airstrikes
on Islamic State positions. The Kurds lost hundreds of their
fighters, and US officials warned they could not keep Kobane
The Kurds received a boost in early November with the
arrival of 160 Peshmerga fighters from northern Iraq who
were equipped with heavy artillery.
But as Islamic State dug into positions around town, the US
role evolved with stepped-up airstrikes, and closer
co-ordination with Syrian Kurdish commanders, who relayed
precise targeting information to US aircraft. The
airstrikes finally helped the Kurds break the last lines of
defence for ISIS.
KURDISH WOMEN’S ARMY
Kurdish women also joined the fighting force. They were
willing to die defending their town, but their presence,
with rifles, had an awesome effect on the ISISians.
ISIS fighters believe that if a woman kills them, they will
not be shahids and therefore will not be sent to
Paradise. The Kurdish army in northern Iraq, the Peshmerga,
made use of this belief by enlisting women fighters who
would shout out loudly as they approached ISIS positions.
When the ISIS fighters heard the Kurdish women's battle
cries, they fled to prevent their being killed by a woman.
The Kurds said their knowledge of the city and experience
in close-contact guerilla fighting arrested the Islamic
For many who fought against ISIS, Kobane is just the first
victory in a wider conflict. They are determined to continue
the fight in other parts of Kurdish Syria.”
Victory has come at the price of the town itself. Streets
lie in ruins. Water and power systems are shattered.
Decaying corpses of jihadist fighters remained, some
stripped of clothing, and one still swaddled in a suicide
vest. Thousands of people died, and another 200,000 remain
as refugees across the border in Turkey.
KOBANE IN RUINS

attention with televised images showing Islamic State

Under US air strikes, ISIS was indeed forced to concede
defeat. But the bigger battle is far from over:
If Kobani was the only military gain achieved by US-backed
forces in months of coalition effort, we wonder who will be
able to stop the brutal ISIS offensive going forward in
Europe, North Africa and the Middle East? Lame
comments by British and US officials suggest the West is
totally at a loss for ways to pre-empt the increasing

VOLUNTEER JIHADISTS WANTING TO LEAVE

The name of Abu Baqr al-Baghdadi has been circulated
widely as ruler of the Islamic “caliphate” he founded in
parts of Syria and Iraq. But behind the scenes, he is
assisted by a tight inner group of 12-15 former high
officers from the Baath army which served Saddam Hussein
up until the 2003 US invasion of Iraq. Members of this group
range in rank from lieutenant-colonel to general.
Ex-Major General Abu Ali al-Anbari, an outstanding
figure, acts as Al Baghdadi’s senior lieutenant. He also
appears to be the brain that has charted ISIS’s current
military strategy which, our sources learn, focuses on
three major thrusts:

ISLAMIST STATE PLOTS TERROR ATTACKS
FOR INSIDE TEHRAN
DEBKAfile reports that ISIS
(Sunni Muslims) has launched a new terror
offensive against the Iranians and other Shi’ite
Muslims. It began on Feb 2 with an attack on a Damascus
bus carrying Lebanese Shi’ite pilgrims to shrines in
Syria. Nine people were killed and at least 20 were injured.
ISIS has set its sights next on the Muslim Shi’ite heartland,
Iran and its cities – especially the capital Tehran.
The Damascus bus attack is linked by some sources to a Saudi

Shi’ite pilgrims in order to assassinate a high-ranking
officer of Hizb’allah’s armed wing, who was on the bus. The
officer was killed. This attack revealed that

Conscious of the Islamic State’s next plans, the Iranian Al
Qods Brigades commander, General Qassem Soleimani, paid an
unscheduled visit to Beirut, Lebanon, on January 29, for
urgent talks with Hizb’allah leader Hassan Nasrallah and
briefings for the organization’s military council members.
Their most pressing concern was the detailed ISIS program,
which is ready to go, for a broad new campaign of
terror against Iranian and pro-Iranian targets in
Lebanon, Syria, Iraq and the Iranian
Iran is solidly Shi’ite Muslim, and it opposes Sunni ISIS at
every level. When it comes to ISIS, Iran and the
US are on the same side!
ISIS IN SINAI
A group of ISIS officers from Iraq have taken command of
their latest ally, Ansar Beit Al-Miqdis.
The leader of this Sinai Peninsula-based Islamic militant
group is Shadi el-Manaei. The group is co-ordinating ISIS
operations between the East Libyan Islamist contingent and
the Sinai movement. Their mission is to topple the rule
of Egyptian President Abdel-Fatteh El-Sisi.
The imported Iraqi command made its presence felt in Libya
on January 27 with the seizure of the luxury Corinthia
Hotel in Tripoli and execution of the foreigners
captured there, including an American and a British man.
JAN 30. ISIS terrorists fanned out across Sinai for
their most devastating attack ever on Egyptian military
and security forces. They launched simultaneous attacks in
five towns, Rafah on the border of the Gaza Strip,
El Arish and Sheikh Suweid in the north and the
Suez Canal cities of Port Said and Suez to the
west – killing some 50 Egyptian personnel and injuring more
than 100 others.
ISIS strategists, not content with these "successes,"
are still in full thrust and believed to be
planning to expand their operations to hit Israel –
either from the south or the north.
ISIS IN GAZA
The expansion of ISIS into Gaza was not to aid the Hamas
regime but to set up a base from which it can attack
Israel. Helping Hamas is out of the question, as Hamas is
now receiving support from the Shi’ite Iranians; the Sunni
ISIS being an enemy of Iran.
Dozens of Hamas and Islamic Jihad fighters have now switched
their allegiance to ISIS, while saying that Hamas is too
mild. The future, they believe, is with ISIS.
ISIS FORCES CAPTURE BIG OIL FIELD IN LIBYA
FEB 4. Islamist State forces have seized the al-Mabrook oil
field south of Sirte, one of the largest in Libya, security
sources in Paris reported. Insufficient attention is paid in
the West to ISIS's creeping expansion in Libya, where the
jihadis are focusing on capturing oil fields, as in Syria.

Vincent Stewart, disclosed that at least 20 terrorist
organizations in Egypt, Libya and Algeria had recently

ISLAMIC STATE CALLS FOR
THE INVASION OF JERUSALEM
NOV 4. Islamic State has issued a statement saying that an
Islamic Caliphate will be established in the Sinai, calling
it the ''first step towards the invasion of Jerusalem.” The
Islamic State’s announcement reveals their true intentions.
For now, the Islamic State seems to be on a pre-ordained
unstoppable path that began with the formation of a
caliphate in Iraq and ends in an attack on Jerusalem. Just
how much they will be able to accomplish only God knows.
SET BACK FOR ISIS.
ISLAMIC STATE’S OIL REVENUES COLLAPSE
FEB 7. Plunging oil prices, airstrikes and strategic errors
by Islamic State have caused the terrorist organisation’s
oil revenues to collapse.
Oil executives and analysts now suggest that IS may, at
most, be able to generate a few hundred thousand dollars a
week from smuggling oil: a far cry from the $US3 million a
day they were receiving earlier.
Last year ISIS looked unbeatable. In January, IS fighters
were defeated around Mount Sinjar. Now, they have fled from
Kobani. And the myth of invincibility has been
A series of strategic miscalculations by the terror
organisation will probably ensure that 2015 is a year of IS
reverses across Syria and Iraq as the group finds itself
facing a variety of enemies. These include coalition air
power, Syrian government troops, Syrian rebel groups,
Iranian special forces, Shia volunteers and Hizb’allah, as
well as Kurdish Peshmerga, Yazidis, federal Iraqi forces
from Baghdad, hostile Sunni tribes, disaffected Baathists,
and heavy attacks from Jordan.
Analysts said ISIS was struggling to maintain its vision of
running a caliphate. But another disturbing report says:
COALITION AGAINST ISIS IS FRAYING
the United Arab Emirates had suspended its air attacks,
after the Jordanian pilot’s capture, when it turned out
that no personnel or facilities had been put in place to
rescue air crews whose planes crashed behind enemy lines.
The nearest US facility able to respond to this contingency
is located in Kuwait, too far away to be able to reach
downed air crews in time to save them from capture.
The UAE has the biggest and most modern air force in the
Gulf region and so its withdrawal is a major blow to
Washington’s war effort.
FEB 7. UAE
rejoins airstrikes on ISIS after 'abominable' execution
of Jordanian pilot.
The Emirates announced it is sending a squadron of F-16
fighter jets to Jordan, resuming its participation in US-led
airstrikes on the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria.)
The four Gulf Arab participants in the US-led group
entertain profound reservations for another reason: Iran’s
increasing involvement in the US-led war on ISIS,
and the growing operational co-ordination
between the two powers – especially in the Iraq arena
– compared with Washington’s dwindling co-operation
with the Gulf participants.
It is feared in Riyadh – and not just in Abu Dhabi – that
the joint US-Iranian war effort against the Islamic State is
providing a screen behind which the Obama administration
is opening doors for Iran to advance its regional

JORDAN VOWS TO ‘ERADICATE’ ISLAMIC STATE
Jordan vowed retaliation against the
Islamic State group for the burning alive of the Jordanian
pilot. Foreign Minister Nasser Judeh said; “We’re going
to go after them and we will eradicate them.
We are at the forefront. This is
The Jordanian military said “dozens of jet fighters”
struck IS targets on Feb 5, hitting training camps as well
as weapons and ammunition depots. Nasser Judeh told CNN the
operation was “the beginning of our retaliation over this
horrific and brutal murder of our brave young pilot.”
JORDANIAN AIRSTRIKES KILL
ISLAMIC STATE MEMBERS IN IRAQ
FEB 6. 35 Islamic State group militants have been killed
in the last day by air strikes carried out by the Royal
Jordanian Air Force in the city of Mosul in northern
Iraq. According to the Sky News report, this is the
first attack on this scale to be carried out by the
Jordanians. The airstrikes targeted several areas in the
northern Iraqi city.
FEB 9. Jordan says it has destroyed 56 targets in
three days of strikes on the Islamic State group.
WORD TO ISRAEL CONCERNING THE ASSYRIAN
The prophets have declared that Jerusalem is the end game in
this spiritual battle. Everything that is happening right
now is leading to the world war, early in the Great
While ISIS could well prove to be a very real threat to
Israel, a promise from Almighty God should be a great
comfort to the Jewish people in the land:
“YHWH of Hosts says, ‘O My
people who dwell in Zion, do not fear the Assyrian
who strikes you with the rod and lifts up his staff against
you, the way Egypt did. For in a very little while My
indignation against you will be spent and My anger will
be directed to their destruction." (Isaiah 10:24-25)
PROPHECY AGAINST CHALDEA (S. IRAQ)
There is a passage in the Book of Habakkuk that speaks of
the fierce Chaldeans – people who dwelt in southern Babylon
and Assyria. (Iraq)
The 11th dynasty of the Kings of Babylon (6th century BC)
is conventionally known as the Chaldean Dynasty. The first
four rulers of this dynasty were positively known to be
Chaldeans, and the last rulers, Nabonidus and his son and
regent Belshazzar, were known to be from Assyria.
This prophecy concerning the Chaldeans adequately describes
ISIS, which is basically from Iraq. And its
leader is al Baghdadi who is named after the Iraq
"Look among the nations!
Observe! Be astonished and wonder! Because I am doing
something in your days – that you would not believe if you
were told. For behold, I am raising up the Chaldeans,
that fierce and impetuous people who march throughout the
whole earth to seize dwelling places which are not theirs.
"They are dreaded and feared.
Their justice and authority originate with themselves.
Their horses are swifter than leopards and fiercer than
wolves in the evening. Their horsemen come galloping; their
cavalry come from afar.
They fly like an eagle
swooping down to devour. All of them come for
violence; their faces press forward like a desert wind.
They gather captives like sand.
"They scoff at kings; and
rulers are a source of derision for them. They laugh at
every fortress and build earthen ramps to seize them.
Then they will sweep through like the wind; they
transgress and become guilty; men whose own strength is
WHAT CONCERTED EFFORTS ARE THERE
There are some 60 States in the American-led coalition
pledged to degrading and destroying the Islamic State – but
only 21 – regarded as “key members” were at the Conference
in London on 22 January – which UK Foreign Minister Philip
Hammond described in these terms:
“Today, 21 key members of
the global coalition met in London to review and discuss our
efforts to degrade and defeat ISIL not just through military
force, but by addressing the underlying narrative of the
organization, its financing, its flow of foreign fighters,
and by reasserting our commitment to Iraq. In total, over 60
countries have signed up to the global coalition, showing
the international will and commitment to combat this
Regardless of what man’s coalition may or may not do, the
Almighty Heavenly Father is watching every detail of all
the barbarity, and
HE WILL ACT IN HIS PERFECT TIME!
NINEVEH (MOSUL) – (NOW THE CITY OF ISIS) WILL FALL!
There is another prophetic book, which is sometimes
overlooked, which deals entirely with Nineveh in
Assyria/Iraq. Mosul is the modern name for Nineveh. - The
book of NAHUM.
The prophecy of Nahum is sure. The book has three chapters
only, and it is explicitly about the destruction of Nineveh
– both past and future. It is a serious warning to ISIS
today. By possessing Mosul, ISIS has inherited the
judgments that are still to be fulfilled in Nineveh.
Let me quote some of the most relevant verses:
THE ANGER OF YAHWEH AGAINST NINEVEH
“Whatever you devise against YHWH, He will make a complete
end of it. Distress will not rise up twice. (So complete
would be God’s judgment of Nineveh that He would not need to
do it twice.)

they will be completely consumed like withered stubble.”
YHWH says; “Even though they are at full strength and are
many, they will be cut off and pass away. .. YHWH
has issued a command concerning you Nineveh: Your
name will no longer be perpetuated. (You will have no
descendants to bear your name.)
I will cut off idol and image
from the house of your gods. I will prepare your grave,
for you are contemptible.”
“Though Nineveh of old was like a pool of water. Now her
people are fleeing. ‘Stop, stop,’ they cry. But
no one turns back. Plunder the silver! Plunder the gold! For
there is no limit to the treasure – an abundance of every
She is emptied, desolate and
waste! Hearts melt, knees knock together! Anguish in
every belly, and all their faces grow pale!”
“Look! I am against you, declares YHWH of hosts.
I will burn up her chariots in smoke, a sword will devour
your young lions. I will cut off your prey from the land,
and no longer will the voice of your messengers be heard.”
3:1-3. “Woe to the city of
blood; full of lies and pillage; her prey never lacking. The
crack of the whip; the sound of rattling wheels, galloping
horses and rumbling chariots!
“Horsemen charging, swords
flashing, spears gleaming; a multitude slain; a mass of
bodies, countless dead; they stumble over the corpses!”
3:7. “And it will come about
that all who see you will shrink from you and say, ‘Nineveh
is devastated! Who will grieve for her? Where will I seek
comforters for you?”
3:15. “There fire will consume
you; the sword will cut you down; like locusts do, it will

your injury; your wound is incur-able.

whom has not your evil passed continually?”

available daily. Too much to quote here. Some of the recent

HOW THE UKRAINE WAR BEGAN
The Ukraine crisis is essentially a battle between the Beast
and the Bear — NATO (US & EU) and RUSSIA.
From the time of the collapse of the Soviet Union until
2013, Ukraine was a ‘buffer state,’ basically a non-aligned
country, with economic ties to both the EU and Russia.
2004, an “Orange Revolution” was funded by the US. For most
of the next decade, Ukraine underwent a failed experiment in
Western-backed ‘neo-liberal’ economic policies.
After nearly two decades of political penetration, the US
and EU were deeply entrenched in the political system via
long-standing funding of so-called non-governmental
organizations, political parties and paramilitary groups.
The strategy of the US and EU was to install a pliant regime
which would bring Ukraine into the European Common Market
and NATO, as a subordinate client state.
Negotiations between the EU and the Ukraine government
proceeded slowly. They eventually faltered because of the
onerous conditions demanded by the EU, and the more
favorable economic concessions and subsidies offered by
Having failed to negotiate the annexation of the Ukraine to
the EU, and not willing to await scheduled constitutional
elections, the NATO powers activated their well-financed and
organized NGOs, client political leaders and armed para-military
groups, to overthrow the pro-Russia government.
violent uprising from Nov 2013 to Feb 2014 succeeded, when
the pro-Russian leader,
fled to Moscow. A civilian-military junta took power.
From the early days of the Ukraine crisis, sources reported
that the government set up in Kiev had no chance of
survival; nor were its leaders qualified to rule a country
of 46 million – and certainly they could not stand up to
Russian military and economic might.
UKRAINE UNDER ATTACK
March 2014, Russia first took over the province of Crimea
with little resistance, and this encouraged a dozen
Russian-speaking areas in East Ukraine to demand separation.
Pro-Russian forces took control of government offices in a
number of towns, demanding referendums on separation.
Kiev’s attempts to expel those forces led to the kidnapping
of Ukrainian inspectors and to fierce and fatal conflicts.
Russia massed 40,000 troops near Ukraine’s eastern border,
giving Putin the option of seizing more of his neighbour's

its own people, and threatened to take action to save the

in East Ukraine declined to honour the Sept 5 peace deal
brokered in Geneva. Denis Pushilin, the leader of the
self-proclaimed Donetsk People's Republic, told the press
that his forces will not surrender arms, vacate government
buildings, or put off a referendum on independence.
Moscow has further turned the screws by gas sanctions”
against Ukraine, which is being charged a much higher price
for gas from Russia, and told sternly to settle payment for
past supplies. If Moscow makes good on a threat to cut off
gas to Ukraine for non-payment of bills, supplies to the
rest of Europe could be disrupted.
RUSSIAN GAS SUPPLIES TO EUROPE VIA UKRAINE
THE ECONOMIC CONFLICT CONTINUES.
THREATENS TO STOP RUSSIAN GAS PIPELINE
The European Commission indicated it will obstruct the
building of the South Stream Russia-EU gas pipeline
that was intended to bypass Ukraine.
The pipeline would bypass Ukraine’s transit system and make
it easier for Russia to cut off Ukraine’s gas without
harming EU customers.
The EU and US warned they will blacklist more Russian
officials and companies unless Russia de-escalates the
conflict. But the NATO allies made it clear they will not
go to military war with Russia no matter what Moscow does to
the former Soviet state.
POLAND ASKS NATO FOR 10,000 TROOPS
is not only Ukraine that feels threatened. Poland wants NATO
to demonstrate its resolve to defend all its members after
Russia's seizure of Crimea.
NATO is divided over demands from Poland and the Baltic
states for a permanent deployment of the Alliance's troops
to defend them from Russia.
NATO foreign ministers met in Brussels to consider requests
for soldiers to be deployed to Poland and the Baltic States,
all of which share borders with Russia.
Britain has offered to send RAF Typhoon fighters to join
NATO exercises over Poland and air defence patrols above the
Baltic states. But Poland wants NATO forces to be
permanently stationed on its territory.
Britain also said it will “contribute aircraft to Baltic air
policing and there may be other measures we decide upon."
Canada is sending CF-18s Hornet fighter aircraft, as NATO
mobilizes. They will operate out of Lask, Poland.
Germany and other NATO members are wary of causing still

Russia in Ukraine after meeting Kiev’s new president Petro
Poroshenko and promising him support.
During his European tour, Obama unveiled a $1bn
initiative to send more US military to Europe on a
temporary basis. He promised: “Poland

The US signed an agreement to provide $2 billion in loan

economic sanctions against Russia if necessary.
THE BEAR THREATENS RETALIATION
Moscow began to take a number of serious steps to counter
the Western sanctions, employing energy tactics, advanced
defence systems, building stronger International alliances,
and steps to scuttle the US dollar.
The new Cold War is intensifying. And Vladimir Putin is

UKRAINIAN JEWS THREATENED
Since the uprising that led to the ouster of President
Yanukovych in February, members of the Jewish community have
been attacked by anti-Semitic and
Concerns have been raised after a leaflet, reminiscent of
Nazi Germany, have been distributed in the eastern Ukrainian
city of Donetsk, ordering Jews to register with local

deportation and see their assets confiscated."
MANY JEWS FLEE UKRAINE
Anti-Semitism increases in Ukraine, growing numbers of
Jewish residents are leaving, and look for refuge in
Israel. Given the long history of virulent anti-Semitism in
the region, there is reason to be concerned for the safety
of the roughly 200,000 Jewish people in Ukraine.
Ukraine’s southern region, Odessa’s Jewish community,
numbering some 30,000, have suffered attacks. Many are
prepared to evacuate should the violence in the city

FEB 2. Separatist rockets streaked across hills in eastern
Ukraine as rebels pounded the positions of Ukrainian
government troops holding a strategic rail town while both
sides pressed ahead with mobilizing more forces for combat.
Some US officials are openly discussing supplying weapons to
the Ukrainian army, a position that has been rejected by
Germany and is viewed skeptically by President Obama.
NATO’S plans to boost its military presence in eastern
Europe risk provoking confrontation, warned Russian Foreign
Minister Sergei Lavrov.
NATO is setting up military headquarters and command centers
from the Baltic to the Black Sea along Russia’s borders, and
plans to ultimately field a rapid-reaction force of 30,000
troops, as relations with the Kremlin deteriorate.
RUSSIA WARNS, “WEST SUPPORT FOR KIEV

Russia’s envoy to the European security watchdog OSCE urged
the United States and Europe to stop supporting the “party

Interfax news agency reported.
NEW PEACE DEAL OFFERS “GLIMMER OF HOPE”
FEB 12. The peace deal for eastern Ukraine

political and economic issues behind the conflict was made
conditional on a series of difficult steps, and put off

PUTIN EXPRESSES HIS MIND
MAY 13/14. "The Americans say I want to rebuild the Soviet
Empire. Yet, the Americans witnessed me withdraw from
Georgia when I had this former Russian province in my hands,
thanks to Russia’s victory in the short-lived war instigated
by the Americans.
“There is no end to the American lies. I have done
everything possible to respond to provocations in a low-key
reasonable manner, offering to work things out
diplomatically, as has my Foreign Minister Lavrov.
But the Americans continue to provoke and to hide their
provocations behind lies.
“The Americans brazenly bring to me a strategic threat in
Ukraine, a former Russian province. They intend to put Ukraine
in NATO. They intend to put more missile bases on Russia’s
borders, and they intended to evict Russia from its Black
Sea naval base, our warm water port. …
“Americans have no intention of working anything out. They
intend to subjugate Russia. Washington wants Russia
powerless, surrounded with ABM bases that degrade our
strategic deterrent to uselessness. These Americans will not
work with me. They will not listen to me or to Russia’s
Foreign Minister. They only hear their own call for American
hegemony over the world. … MY
ONLY ALTERNATIVE IS TO PREPARE FOR WAR.”
A day after recent talks in Moscow with the leaders of
Germany and France failed to achieve a breakthrough in
resolving the Ukraine crisis, Vladimir Putin struck a
defiant tone. Russia won’t tolerate the post-Cold War global
system dominated by a single leader, he said.
“That type of world order has never been acceptable for
Russia. Maybe someone likes it and wants to live under a
pseudo-occupation, but we won’t put up with it.”
Is he referring to the plans for the New World Order?
RUSSIA TESTS MULTI-WARHEAD ICBM
Russia’s military has carried out a flight test of a new
multi-warhead inter-continental ballistic missile amid
growing tensions with the US over the crisis in Ukraine.
The SS-27 Mod 2 road-mobile ICBM was launched from Russia’s
Plesetsk launch facility, 500 miles north of Moscow.
The SS-27 Mod 2 is Russia’s newest ICBM with a range of
around 3,500 miles. It has been touted by Russian officials
as designed specifically to defeat US missile defences.
RUSSIAN PLANES MORE ACTIVE IN ASIA-PACIFIC
MAY 5. General Herbert Carlisle, the commander of US air
forces in the Pacific, reported a sharp increase in Russian
air patrols of ship activity around Japanese islands and
Carlisle said Russia was demonstrating its capabilities and
gathering intelligence on US military exercises. He said
there had been long-range Russian air patrols to the coast
of California and a circumnavigation of the US Pacific
territory of Guam. A US F-15 fighter jet intercepted a
Russian strategic bomber that had flown around the US base.
RUSSIA THREATENS RESPONSE
IF US SETS UP NEW SANCTIONS
Russia has responded angrily to news that US senators had
passed a bill calling for fresh sanctions against Moscow,
and the supply of lethal military aid to Ukraine.
"Undoubtedly, we will not be able to leave this without a
response," deputy foreign minister Sergei Ryabkov said ahead
of a meeting between the Russian and US foreign ministers.
The Senate bill – dubbed the Ukraine Freedom Support Act –
must still be approved by the White House, which has so far
been reluctant to provide direct military assistance to
Ukraine for fear of being drawn into a proxy war with
PROVOKING A WAR WITH RUSSIA?
Outspoken Republican, Ron Paul, declared: “Today the US
House passed what I consider to be one of the worst pieces
of legislation ever.
“The bill was 16 pages of war propaganda.
I can hardly believe they are getting away with it again,
and this time with even higher stakes: provoking a war with
Russia that could result in total destruction!
Ron Paul continued: “The resolution directly involves the US
government in the conflict by calling on the US president to
provide the government of Ukraine with lethal and non-lethal
defence articles, services, and training required to
effectively defend its territory and sovereignty.
“This means US weapons in the hands of US-trained military
forces would engage in a hot war on the border with Russia.
Does that sound at all like a good idea?”
“There are too many more ridiculous and horrific statements
in this legislation to completely discuss.
Probably the single most troubling part of this resolution,
however, is the statement that ‘military intervention’ by
the Russian Federation in Ukraine ‘poses a threat to
inter-national peace and security.’
“Such terminology is not an accident: this phrase is the
poison pill planted in this legislation from which future,
more aggressive resolutions will follow. After all, if we
accept that Russia is posing a ‘threat’ to international
peace, how can such a thing be ignored? These are the
slippery slopes that lead to war.”

The rift between the US and Russia continues as the Pentagon
threatens Russia with releasing nuclear missiles in lieu of
the Moscow's violation.
According to the US, the country is prepared to

MAY 29, 2014. Nursultan Nazarbayev of Kazakhstan and,
Alexander Lukashenko of Belarus, attend the meeting of the
Supreme Eurasian Economic Council in Astana (Kazakhstan)
where they signed an “epochal treaty.”
The historic Eurasian Economic Union Agreement came into

As well as Russia, Belarus and Kasakh-stan, Armenia

New World Order
is evidently pursuing.
For the last two decades the Iranian Islamic State led by
Ayatollahs has been developing nuclear options and preparing
long-range ballistic missiles. The pretext has been
that the state needs nuclear power for producing
the same time, Iran’s leaders have regularly displayed their
hatred for another UN member – Israel – and have been
proclaiming that the State of Israel will be exterminated.
Over the past ten years, teams of international nuclear
inspectors, and international negotiators have sought to
clarify Iran’s activities, and to cap Iran’s uranium
enrichment so as to limit the Ayatollahs’ ability to build
nuclear weapons - without much success.
Sanctions have been slapped on Iran’s government which have
hurt, and caused Tehran to agree to more “serious
negotiations.” These talks have been continuously frustrated
by obstructions and uncompromising demands.
After several extensions, it seems that the compromising has
been on the part of the negotiating team led by the US.
January, an American official made the incredible statement
that the US goal is not to dismantle Iran’s nuclear program,
but simply TO DELAY it.
JAN 5. According to Israeli officials, European diplomats
are saying that the US, which has made significant
concessions, is close to striking a deal with Iran that
would permit them to keep up to 6,500 centrifuges in
return for “guaranteeing regional stability” in
Iraq, Afghanistan and Syria.
This is insane!
How can the source of the greatest terrorist unrest in the
world “guarantee stability”?
This deal would put Iran about three months from creating a
nuclear weapon. What is more, apparently the US is also
considering a “time limit,” so that the “restrictions”
would last only for 10 to 15 years, after which Iran
could do what it wished.
As if the above were not enough, last month, the German
weekly Der Spiegel broke the news (emphasis added):
“New intelligence suggests that ...
and he may be getting help from North Korea and Iran……secret
information obtained by SPIEGEL indicates that the
world is once again being misled by Assad.
Syria’s dictator has not given up his dream of an atomic
weapon and has apparently built a new nuclear
facility at a secret location.”
This is an extremely unsettling piece of news. “Analysts say
that the Syrian atomic weapon program has continued in a
secret, underground location. Furthermore, a new reactor
or an enrichment facility has very likely been built at the
site — a development of incalculable geopolitical
“Intelligence agency findings indicate that the material
[uranium, etc.] was moved to a well-hidden
underground location just west of the city of Qusayr,
not even two kilometres from the border with Lebanon.”
“…the clearest proof that it is a nuclear facility
comes from radio traffic recently intercepted by a
network of spies. A voice identified as belonging to a
high-ranking Hizb’allah functionary can be heard
referring to the ‘atomic factory’ and mentions
“Work performed at the site by members of Iran’s
is also mentioned in the intercepted conversations.” …

PROPHECY AGAINST ELAM (Western IRAN)
Maybe the LORD will use the IDF to fulfil this prophecy

word of YHWH came to Jeremiah the prophet concerning Elam,
at the beginning of the reign of Zedekiah king of Judah:
This is what YHWH of Hosts says: ‘Look, I will break the bow
of Elam, the mainstay of their might.
‘I will bring against Elam the
four winds from the four ends of heaven, and will scatter
them toward all these winds. There will be no nation to
which the outcasts of Elam will not go. I will shatter Elam
before their enemies, and before those who seek their lives.
I will bring calamity upon them, even My fierce anger,’
declares YHWH, ‘And I will send the sword after them until I
have consumed them.
‘Then I will set My Throne in
Elam and destroy from there the king and princes,’ declares
YHWH. But it will come about in the last days that I will
turn back the captivity of Elam,’ declares YHWH.”
Before the Ukraine crisis developed, Russia's Gazprom,
controlled almost one fifth of the world's gas reserves, and
supplied more than 50% of Ukraine's gas, and about 30% of
Europe's gas annually.
The Ukraine crisis set off another war based on oil and gas.
Because of Russia’s control of the northern gas fields, and
its stranglehold on Ukraine’s economy, Ukraine signed a $10
billion shale gas deal with US Chevron "that Ukraine hoped
would end its energy dependence on Russia by 2020."
With Europe’s intent on drawing Ukraine into its sphere of
economic influence, and because of the growing unreliability
of the pipelines going across Ukraine, Moscow planned to
build a new Southstream pipeline bypassing Ukraine.
This has been challenge by the EU, and has set off another

the confrontation was full on, and it soon developed into a
global oil pricing war, bringing in the US, Saudi Arabia and
Iran, and in fact, the whole world.
IRAN LEADER SAYS SAUDI ARABIA IS
USING TREACHERY IN OIL PRICE WAR
many observers, OPEC’s refusal to cut production so as to
keep the oil price high,
was the beginning of a price war so that Saudi Arabia, the
cartel’s most influential member, could regain the market

to the recent American oil boom.
Now Iran’s president, Hassan Rouhani, is saying that Riyadh,
through OPEC, is using “treachery” to harm the economies of
fellow oil-producing Muslim states in the Middle East.
SAUDI ARABIA & US IN OIL
WITH IRAN AND RUSSIA
JAN 15. Saudi Arabia is now going after Russia, a main
backer of the kingdom’s sectarian opponent, Shi’ite Iran, by
targeting its oil production clout to adversely impact
both the Iranian and Russian economies.
Sources say the US may be colluding with Saudi Arabia
to cause a dramatic drop in the oil price in an effort to
punish Russia for its support of rebels in Ukraine, and
for its backing of both Syrian President Bashar al-Assad,
The Saudi strategy is to flood the international market
to harm the economies of Russia and Iran, both of which
need the price to be above $100 a barrel to break even.
The price of oil today is fluctuating around $50 a barrel.

About half of Russia’s budget revenues come from oil and gas
taxes, and a quarter of its GDP is linked to the energy
industry. With the oil price falling from $115 US dollars a
barrel in June to
now, Russia's economy is feeling the pinch.
December 15, 2014, it was reported that the Russian
currency, known as the rouble,
lost 9.7% of its value in just one day, which brought the
overall loss in value this year to an astounding 49%. On top
of this comes the closed access to EU and US capital markets
as part of the joint sanctions.
With the US and its ally Saudi Arabia determining the oil
price, it is likely the squeeze will continue until Russian

going very poorly for Vladimir Putin these days.
Having found the West more united than he expected on the
issue of sanctions against Russia, he now discovers that the
bottom has fallen out of the international oil market.
real danger is that a Russian economy in tatters will only
increase the incentives for aggressive moves abroad. When
cornered, Putin is likely to become even more dangerous.
When he launched his Ukrainian adventure around a year ago,
Putin was counting on a divided Europe’s inability to join
the US in imposing meaningful economic sanctions as a
response. But Europe joined in strengthening penalties on
the Russian energy and financial sectors.
This forced Putin to strike a long-term energy supply
arrangement with China at prices generally viewed as
unfavorable to Russia.
Europe has managed to thwart Russia’s attempts to undermine
Ukraine and increase its stranglehold on the European energy
market. Effectively blocking the construction of
Southstream was an important step in the process.
Russia intended to use the pipeline to supply Europe with
gas without it having to go through Ukraine — a move that
would have drastically increased his ability to squeeze that
country without endangering Europe’s energy supply.
The Southstream setback has caused Putin to make
another hasty and questionable move: an alternative
pipeline deal with Turkey.

Europe will allow that gas to enter Europe through Greece.
addition, Putin appears to have been caught totally
flatfooted by developments in the international oil market.
He especially seems to have misjudged the major shifts
caused by the US shale oil revolution, along with increased
offshore oil and gas production in a variety of other
countries, and the slowing in the overall global economy.
Those changes have seen global oil prices decline from $100
per bbl (barrel) to around $50 over the past 8 months. All
this, in turn, has blown a hole in the Russian budget which
depends on oil for around 45% of its tax revenues. Over the
past year, the Russian rouble has also lost around half its
value, contributing to an inflation rate now at 9%.
Coupled with sanctions, the dismal oil picture has caused a
collapse in investor and household confidence in the
economy, and has forced Moscow to acknowledge that the
country is headed for a recession this year.
Speaking of Russia’s current economic crisis, the
vice-chairman of Russia’s central bank, Sergei Shvetsov, was
quoted as saying, “The situation is critical. “What is
happening is a nightmare that we could not even have
imagined a year ago.”

Energy supply to Europe cut off.
Petrodollar abandoned as currency war escalates!

There are some big moves taking place on the global stage
that you need to know about, as this could all lead to World
In January 2015, Russia cut off its natural gas supply to
Europe, “plunging the continent into an energy crisis
‘within hours’ as a dispute with Ukraine escalated.”
“Gas companies in Ukraine confirmed that Russia had
completely cut off their supply. Six countries reported a
complete shut-off of Russian gas shipped via Ukraine, in a
sharp escalation of a struggle over energy that threatens
Europe as winter sets in.”
Alternative media warned about this weeks ago.
Former US Treasury Secretary Paul Craig Roberts had also
warned in advance of a “Black Swan Event” such as Russia

which are piped into the region via Ukraine. This is
especially true in the winter when gas is needed for heat.

Russia has also “just pulled itself out of the petrodollar.”
reports Zero Hedge.
The story quotes Bloomberg.com stating that Russia “may
unseal its $88 billion Reserve Fund and convert some of its
foreign-currency holdings into rouble.”
This is further explained by Mac Slavo at SHTF plan.com
who explains, “What we are seeing are the strategic moves
that will eventually set the stage for the next great
war. And make no mistake, this is exactly what’s in
store for the world should these escalations continue.”
ESCALATION INTO WAR?
What’s happening here is a radical escalation of the global
currency war in which Russia and China are attempting to
route the US dollar and ultimately destroy the “US Empire” -
(America’s sphere of influence).
Part of this strategy involves dumping the petrodollar as a
global reserve currency and reverting to alternative
currencies that are backed by something more than hot air.
Further evidence of this strategy is found in the report
that China is moving to back its Yuan currency with gold!
This explains why China has been buying up the world’s
physical gold supplies. The US, meanwhile, has empty gold
vaults and a fiat paper currency backed by nothing but hot
air, empty promises and endless debt.
The whole world knows this, and nations like Russia are
positioning themselves to take advantage of the massive
currency collapse that’s eventually coming to the
OIL PRICES MANIPULATED
AN ACT OF ECONOMIC WARFARE
As part of the US effort to wage war on Russia, oil prices
have been artificially lowered with the help of the Saudis.
The aim is to devastate the Russian economy, harm the
Russian currency and even cause damage to Venezuela where
food supplies are now wiped out and grocery stores are being
guarded by armed government military personnel.
Massive geopolitical strategies and schemes are being
unleashed right now, behind the scenes, and a currency war
is under way at the highest levels.
Of course, you won’t hear a word of this from the hypnotic,
droning mainstream media which tells you everything is just
fine. It isn’t!
THE DAYS ARE NUMBERED FOR THE DOLLAR
THE WORLD’S RESERVE CURRENCY
The world, it seems, is fed up with the US abusing its
reserve currency status by pumping up the money supply with
billions of dollar a month in new fiat money - courtesy of
the Federal Reserve and its bankster bailouts.
The world is also fed up with the US meddling in
inter-national affairs in Ukraine, the Middle East and
dozens of individual nations where the “US empire” maintains
a military occupation of one kind or another.
Right now the Russians are targeting NATO countries with
energy cut-offs, sending a message that any nation which
allows its soil to be used by western forces to host missile
systems will find its economy crushed by a lack of available

HOW WAS THE U.S. DRAWN INTO WORLD WAR 2?
It was a US-led energy blockage against Japan in the 1940’s
that ultimately forced Japan to launch its surprise attack
on Pearl Harbor. In a similar pattern, the US and NATO
nations are currently forcing devastating economic sanctions
onto Russia, driving the nation into a rapidly-dwindling set
of defensive options, one of which includes the deployment
of nuclear weaponry.
This situation is beyond “serious.” It is at red alert
We are living in a time when all truth-tellers are condemned
as heretics. Any person quoting accurate economic
statistics, for example, is called a “doom and gloomer.”
Anyone questioning the sanity of a government that’s $18
trillion in debt and spending wildly on ballooning
entitlement programs is labelled “anti-government.”
We are living in a time that’s so bizarre, almost everything
the average American believes to be true is factually false.
The real truth is that our world is headed straight into
unprecedented crisis and conflict. We are living in the
run-up to a collapsed economy that exists in a world where
the most powerful nations on the planet have already
declared a covert war on the “US empire” (and can’t wait to
bring it down).
The artificially-inflated luxury lifestyle currently
experienced by the US population — complete with welfare
state entitlement programs — will come to an end for the
simple reason that it’s all funded by the artificial
creation of money. That artificial money creation, in turn,
is only possible because the dollar is currently the world’s
reserve currency, providing a very large money supply base
(“buffer”) that insulates America from the more immediate
effects of fiat currency creation.
But as the world abandons the petrodollar, the ability of
the US to print its way to bigger government, bigger
entitlements, and bigger debt, will utterly collapse. - Mike

The Economic Collapse
RUSSIA'S FALLING ECONOMY
The 8th largest economy on the entire planet is in a state
of turmoil right now.
The shocking collapse of the price of oil has hit many
countries really hard, but very few nations are as dependent
on energy production as Russia.
Sales of oil and natural gas account for approximately
two-thirds of all Russian exports and approximately 45% of
all government revenue. So it should be no surprise that
the price of oil, declining by almost 50% since June, is
absolutely catastrophic for the Russian economy.
Interest rates in December were raised from 10.5% to 17%.

capital flight, you get the ingredients for an almost

The ECB has decided that it will no longer accept Greek

current range the more damage that it is going to do.

The advanced weapons were sent after Russian President
Vladimir Putin learned that the Obama administration and the
Erdogan (Turkish) government were close to a final draft on
a joint effort to activate a no-fly zone that would bar
Syrian air force traffic over northern Syria.
The Kremlin repeatedly warned that the establishment of a
no-fly or buffer zone in any part of Syria would be treated
as direct American intervention in the Syrian war and result
in Russian military intervention for defending the Assad
According to a US-Turkish draft, American warplanes would be
allowed to take off from the Turkish airbase of Incirlik for
operations against Syrian warplanes, assault helicopters or
drones entering the no-go zone.
Thus far, Ankara had only permitted US surveillance aircraft
and drones the use of Incirlik for tracking the movements of
Islamic State fighters in northern Syria.
The Obama administration was long deterred from implementing
the no-fly zone plan by the wish to avoid irritating Moscow,
and facing the hazards of Syria’s world-class air defence

This time, Damascus warned that their government’s response

Israel’s air strikes in Damascus and on the Syrian-Lebanese

The Israeli air strikes occurred less than 24 hours after
Deputy Russian FM, Mikhail Bogdanov, the Kremlin’s lead man

Nasrallah, in Beirut.
Our sources have learned that Moscow has been looking for a
reckoning with the US and Israel over the fall in
October of the large Russian intelligence post at Tel
a-Hara in southern Syria to Syrian rebel units.
The secret site that was located strategically close to the
junction of Syria’s borders with Jordan and Israel, was one
of the most highly sophisticated Russian intelligence bases
outside its borders.
The captured hi-tech apparatus, much of it unfamiliar to
Western spy agencies, was quickly shipped out of Syria for
examination in the West.
The fact that Israel conducted air strikes against two
facilities of the Syrian army division along the route to
Lebanon indicates that the targeted weapons were indeed on
their way from Syria to Hizb’allah in Lebanon.

Zahar told the Hizb’allah TV station Al-Manar that

against marching Islamist State soldiers, the unending
Syrian conflict and the Palestinian issue.
The showdown building up for years between them may now be
at hand. It will catch Obama and John Kerry fully engaged in a
desperate pursuit of a comprehensive nuclear deal
between Iran and the Six-World-Powers group. This deal could
then be presented as an unquestioned success of Obama’s
Middle East policies – indeed the only one.
Together with Iran’s President Hassan Rouhani and Foreign
Minister Mohamed Zarif, US officials have roughed out a

their horses until the end of 2016, when the US

Washington, while Obama would have formally honoured his

Khamenei by a military coup if he let Rouhani and Zarif

Khamenei, never lost for a devious manoeuvre, began
weaving between the two compulsions – American
demands for more concessions to finalize the deal, and
demands by hardliners at home not to give way.
The move he made was to throw a bone in the form of an
offer to cut down on the number of centrifuges used in

ISRAEL TAKES DIRECT AIM AT IRAN
It was no accident that two days
before this speech, Obama had his answer from Israel.
On January 19, Israeli Air Force drones struck an Iranian-Hizb’allah
military convoy near the Syrian Golan town of Quneitra. Six
Iranian officers were killed, led by General Mohamad Ali
Allah Dadi, as well as the same number of high-ranking
This was a dual threat: Israel would not stand by if
Iranian and Hizb’allah forces moved into the Syrian Golan
right up against Israel’s frontier.
But in the wider context, Netanyahu was signalling
Obama in Washington and Khamenei in Tehran, that
he no longer had any qualms about striking Iranian
military targets if the two rulers failed to forge a
workable, credible accord for keeping nuclear weapons out
of Iranian hands.
To pay back Netanyahu, Obama has sent a professional team to
Israel in a bid to spoil the prime minister’s run
for re-election on March 17.
OBAMA ANGRY AT THE US CONGRESS SPEAKER
The White House is seething with anger
towards House speaker John Boehner after he went
ahead and invited Israeli PM Netanyahu to address Congress
in March, on "the grave threats radical Islam and Iran
pose to our security and way of life.”
Having Netanyahu come to Washington to speak on the Iranian
nuclear threat is not what Obama wants - especially
after he (Obama) refused to issue new sanctions on Iran, but
instead, has allowed Iran to start construction on two
new nuclear power plants – backed by Russia.
Netanyahu is scheduled to speak to the US Congress on
March 3 and will push for additional sanctions on
Iran. Neither Barack Obama or John Kerry will meet with
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu while he is in
Washington, the White House said.
CHINA to HOLD
MILITARY PARADE TO FRIGHTEN JAPAN
China will this year hold its first large-scale military
parade since 2009 to mark the 70th anniversary of the end of
World War II, with one key goal described as being to
“frighten Japan.” One reason for mounting the parade was “to
frighten Japan and declare to the world China’s
determination to maintain the post-war world order,” said an
article written by Chinese financial and global affairs
commentator Hu Zhanhao.
JAPAN TAKES FIRST STEP IN
ALLOWING IT TO GO TO WAR AGAIN
The Japanese government will take steps to exercise its
right to so-called collective self-defence, allowing it
to attack a third country when an ally is in some way
under threat. The move is at odds with Japan's pacifist
post-war constitution and has alarmed neighbours who recall

amend the constitution so that Japanese troops can once
again operate overseas.
Internal wars, uprisings, and protests within countries are
not new, but in these days it’s like an epidemic. Over the
past five years, the Middle East experienced a so-called
“Arab Spring,” as crowds of protestors called for the
overthrown of their governments.
It began with successful campaigns in Tunisia, and
then Egypt, Libya and Yemen, but what followed
the ousting of the rulers was more turbulence and
uncertainty. Unsuccessful protests began in Syria,
Bahrain and Jordan. Syria, of course, developed
into a 4-year war that is still not over; but it has paved
the way for ISIS to become entrenched there.
The drama in Yemen continues. In January,

In the Middle East, as well as the major wars, there have
been internal wars, uprisings in Israel, West Bank,

This list is not complete, but this is enough to show that
wars are going on all over the world, without a break!
MANY CIVIL WARS AHEAD
FOR THE WORLD
With the expansion of terrorist organisations into
neighbouring countries, and into the Western World, the
stage is being set for civil wars in dozens of countries.
ISIS, Boko Haram, al-Qaida, Hamas, Hizb’allah, al-Nusra
Front, al-Shabaab and Taliban are only a few of the more
visible groups that are troubling the nations. Of course,
they do not call themselves terrorist, but rather,
There are also many new communist, Nazi, extremist and
revolutionary movements that threaten many nations.
There is so much discontent in the nations, and extremist
agendas in play, that we can well envisage reaction to such
groups flaring up into civil wars, in the context of the
coming world war. As Y’shua has stated:
“Nation will rise against
nation, and kingdom against kingdom.” (Matthew 24:7)
And as the prophecy of the apostle Paul says:
“In the last days perilous
times will come. For men will be lovers of self … without
natural affection, (callous and inhuman), unloving,
unforgiving, irreconcilable … without self-control, brutal,
despisers of good, treacherous, reckless, conceited
(traitors, headstrong, haughty)… Evil men and
imposters will go from bad to worse, deceiving
and being deceived.” (2 Timothy 3:1-4, 13)
It has been estimated that around 150,000 Christians around
the world are martyred every year.
Africa is notorious for its persecution of Christians - in
Nigeria, Central Africa Republic, Sudan, Kenya, Somalia,
Tanzania, Niger, Eritrea, to name some of the most
conspicuous. But North Korea (with 70,000 Christians
permanently in hard labour detention camps), Iran,
Pakistan, Indonesia, and now India and Nepal
are among the persecutors.
Recently in Turkey a Bible correspondence school in
Istanbul has been destroyed by arson, along with about
20,000 books. And in Uzbekistan, Bibles have been

alarming. Many Jews from both countries say it is time to
leave. Most are migrating to Israel where they believe they
will feel more secure than in western countries.
INCREASING BRUTALITY IN JERUSALEM
NOV 18. In Israel at least four Israelis were killed and
eight injured, when two Palestinian men with a pistol,
knives and axes attacked a West Jerusalem synagogue. The two
men were shot in a shoot-out with the attackers when police
reached the scene. Palestinians drivers have rammed their
vehicles into pedestrians, killing and injuring as many as
possible. Stabbings, and bombs thrown at Jewish cars are
common, and violence on the Temple Mount.

BURNED IN VIOLENT RAIDS
The minority Christian population in Niger was targeted in
violent raids after a French satirical magazine depicted
controversial images of Islam's prophet Mohammed. Dozens of
churches were burned down, along with numerous other
Christian-owned buildings, including homes, schools and
those used by organizations. At least 10 people were killed
in the rioting, which centered around the capital city of
Niamey and the southern city of Zinder, also extending to
various towns across the country. Similar protests were held
in several other nations, including Algeria, Senegal,
Pakistan, Somalia and Sudan.
Many in Niger's Christian communities have fled their homes
and remain very fearful of further attacks. There are
reports that the homes belonging to Christians have been
marked for destruction, and that mosque loudspeakers have
broadcast extremist sermons promoting jihad against the
already victimized believers. Source: Release

INDIA MP VOWS DEATH FOR
HINDUS CONVERTING TO CHRIST
(Worthy News from New Delhi).
An Indian lawmaker of the ruling Hindu nationalist party has
promised a Death sentence for any Hindu who converts to
Christianity, according to the International Business
“Wait for some time,” said MP Sakshi Maharaj. “A law will be
passed in Parliament in which anyone indulging in cow
slaughter and conversion will be punished with the death
Anti-conversion laws are in force in the five Indian states

MAHARASHTRA CHIEF MINISTER REJECTS
Chief minister, Vilasrao Deshmukh, has rejected a proposed
‘anti-conversion bill’ amid warnings the legislation would
increase the persecution of Christians.
Under the controversial law, which was proposed by the
state's Interior Minister Siddharam Mhetre, priests could be
imprisoned or fined if found “contravening the provisions”
of the legislation even in cases when someone voluntarily
decides to change his or her religion.
The bill would make it “mandatory” for a prospective convert
to take prior permission from a local administration before
converting. It also requires a priest to ask permission from
authorities before performing any ceremony for conversion.
Interior Minister Vilasrao Deshmukh reportedly wanted a law
along the lines of similar legislation in southern state of
Tamil Nadu, to avoid “forceful conversions.” -
CHRISTIANS DEMONSTRATING AGAINST CHURCH ATTACKS,
ARRESTED IN NEW DELHI
More than 1,500 Christians

They demanded protection for their places of worship. But
a large number of policemen cracked down and dragged 300
activists, including priests, into buses and took them away.
statement issued by a group of archbishops raised questions
about whether constitutional guarantees are not applicable
to the Christian community. “Hardly a day has passed in
recent months without reports of attacks on Christians,
Churches and Christian institutions from across the nation,”
the statement added.
There have been violent incidents against Christians
throughout India in recent months and church leaders have
linked the attacks to increasing Hindu militants and
their supporters. “In India's rural areas, church burnings,
beatings, social boycotts and forced re-conversion attempts
have become common place,” the bishops said.
A brother from India has written that Christians are
standing firm in the face of this opposition.
India's national BJP government has
remained bizarrely silent on the issue of religious
intolerance, despite the fact that it is affecting millions
of its own citizens.
AAP'S LANDSLIDE VICTORY IN DELHI ELECTION
FEb 10. The Aam Aadmi Party of anti-corruption

only three. And Congress drew a blank.

Fighting back the perception that the Union government is

Hindutva groups, Mr Modi said that every individual had

“We cannot accept violence against any religion on any
pretext, and I strongly condemn such violence. My government
will act strongly in this regard,” he said. - The Hindu
NEPALI CHRISTIANS ALSO FACE RADICAL ONSLAUGHTS
Nepal was once a Hindu state with a monarchy where the king
was regarded as a god. The Maoist uprising brought down the
monarchy, and this was followed by the Maoists joining in
the parliamentary process. In due time, Nepal was
declared to be a secular nation. But this amendment was
not written in the existing constitution.
Political processes are often troublesome in Nepal. A draft
of a new constitution has been promised, but it has been
regularly held up, while the battle over whether Nepal
should be a Hindu or a secular state goes on.
Just as hideous as ISIS, its ally in Nigeria, Boko Haram,
has declared an Islamic caliphate in Nigeria.

Nigerian schoolgirls who remain missing.

NOV 29. At least 120 people were killed and 270 others
wounded when two suicide bombers blew themselves up, and
gunmen opened fire during weekly prayers at the mosque of
one of Nigeria's top Islamic leaders.
The attack was at the Grand Mosque in Kano, the biggest city
in the mainly Muslim north of the country.
The mosque is attached to the palace of the Emir of Kano,
Nigeria's second most senior Muslim cleric, who last week
urged civilians to take up arms against Boko Haram.

POPULATION REDUCTION – TARGETTING BABIES
High leaders and organisations around the world that are
working to build a New World Order, believe the world’s
population must be drastically reduced. We need to come back
to a manageable level, and start a new planned civilization.
And the nations today are all contributing to that
de-population through violence, wars, corruption,
selfishness, and through eliminating millions of unborn

AFTER THE WAR,
Antichrist, the apparent victor, moves into Jerusalem and
sets up his headquarters. By the middle of the 7 years, the
majority of the
survivors, while calling out for a saviour, will surrender
to the Beast.
Antichrist will then establish the New World Order, which
will lead to worldwide dictatorship and the mandatory
worship and the mark of the Beast.
YEARS OF THE REIGN OF THE BEAST

YHWH. “And I will stretch out My hand against you, and roll

corner nor a stone for foundations, but you will be desolate
forever,” declares YHWH.
The destruction of the Beast comes at the end of the 7
years – at the end of The Great Tribulation.
That is, at the climax of the age, at …

strike the nations.”
THE BEAST IS DESTROYED
“The beast was seized,
and with him the false prophet who had performed the
signs in his presence, by which he deceived those who had
received the mark of the beast and those who worshipped his
image. These two were thrown alive into the fiery lake of
burning sulphur. And the rest were killed with the sword
which came from the mouth of Him who sat on the horse.”
THE END OF POLITICAL BABYLON!

sounded like the roar of a great multitude in heaven,
shouting, ‘HalleluYah! Salvation and glory and power belong
to our God!’ ” (Revelation 18:1, 21. 19:1)
But now, to all of us who are believers, living before

“Live and remain in

THE MOST URGENT MATTER!
SURE OF YOUR PERSONAL SALVATION!
Finally, a word for any readers who may not be sure that
they are saved.
Salvation is definitely available, but …
SALVATION IS NOT GIVEN TO ANYONE AS A REWARD
And salvation is not obtainable by “good works” that we do.
Salvation is given as a GIFT to all who humbly come
to Y’shua, confessing faith in Him, and thus receiving Him
as their Saviour. (Rewards are imparted later, for faithful
living and service for the Master.)
“The wages of sin is death,
but the gift of God is eternal life in the
Messiah, Y'shua our Master.” (Romans 6:23)
THE TRUE LIGHT AND LIFE
Look at these scriptures about the Saviour, and the
“grounds” of salvation:
“In the beginning was the
Word, and the Word was with God (Yahweh
Almighty), and the Word was God. He was with God in
the beginning before all time. All things came
into being through Him; and apart from Him nothing came
into being that has come into being.” (John 1:1-3)
“The Word became flesh
(incarnate, human), and dwelt among us, and we saw
His glory, the glory of the "only begotten"
(the one and
came from the Father, full of grace and truth.” (John 1:14)
“This was the true Light,
which, coming into the world, enlightens every man. He was
in the world, and though the world was made through Him, the
world did not know Him. He came to His own, but His own did
not receive Him. But to all who received Him, to
those who believe in His Name, Y'shua/Jesus,
He gave the right to become children of God.” (John
“Then Y'shua spoke to them
again, saying, 'I am the Light of the world; he who
follows Me will not walk in darkness, but will
have the light of life.”
“In Messiah, Y'shua, you are
all sons of God through faith.” (Galatians 3:26)
Y’shua, Jesus, is the Light of Heaven that shines in this
dark world. He is also the Way to the Father. He is the
Way of salvation. There is no other who can save from
sin and hell..
“Thomas said to Him, 'Master
… how can we know the way?' Y'shua answered him, 'I am the
Way, the Truth, and the Life; no-one comes to the Father,
except through Me.” (John
When His Light shines into our hearts and minds, and we
embrace that Light of Life, we are transferred from the
Kingdom of darkness to the Kingdom of Light.
“For He delivered us
from the power and dominion of darkness, and
transferred us into the kingdom of His beloved Son, in whom
we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of
sins.” (Colossians 1:13-14)
Redemption “through His blood” refers to the
salvation that God has provided through the sacrifice of His
beloved Son in the cross of Calvary. Jesus shed His blood
and died to pay the penalty for the sins of the whole world,
for “the wages of sin is death” -
as we have read above.
This is the heart of the Good news - God’s message.
“ … the Good News
which I have already preached to you. ... for what I
received I passed on to you as of first importance, that the
Messiah died for our sins, according to the
Scriptures, and that He was buried, and that He
was raised on the third day according to the
Y’shua, Jesus, went all the way to Calvary, carrying the
cross on which He was crucified.
He has done His part by dying on the cross and paying the
penalty of your sins. Your part needs to be the response of
your whole heart and mind – believing in the Saviour, and
trusting Him to save you from your sins, and from a wasted
If you need and truly want salvation from the penalty of
your sins, and you earnestly desire a new life “in Christ,”
you need to know the Saviour.
His Name is

and following Him throughout your life.

here and now.
must I do to be saved?"
"Believe in the
Master, Y'shua the Messiah (that is, give yourself over
to Him), and you will be saved.” (Acts 16:30-31)
"He who believes (has faith
in) in the Son has eternal life; but he who does not
believe the Son shall not see life, but the wrath of God
remains on him." (John 3:36)
When we believe, trust and hand over our lives to the
Saviour, He forgives our
sins, and gives us a new
life - a
spiritual life – a life that
will grow and mature day by day as we walk in
fellowship with Him.
To receive this salvation, this new life, you need to begin
by praying to the Heavenly Father –
“God be merciful to me, a
sinner.” (Luke 18:13)
Then talk to the Father in simple words, expressing
yourself, and expressing faith in Christ.
Here is a prayer that
help you to express your heart.
