Thanks JP for starting this thread.
Jesus said: "And he answered and said unto them, Have ye not read that he which made them at the beginning made them male and female, And said, For this cause shall a man leave father and mother, and shall cleave to his wife: and they twain shall be one flesh? Wherefore, they are no more twain, but one flesh. What therefore God hath joined together, let not man put asunder." -from THE BIBLE: Matthew 19:4-6

Powell: Arab world should be more outraged
'No excuse for silence' after American's beheading
The Arab world should be showing "a higher level of outrage" over the death of an American businessman whose beheading was posted on an Islamist Web site last week, U.S. Secretary of State Colin Powell said Sunday.
Ping to thread eight
Thank you, well done.
It will work, very well.
Do you realize, that when you are an old woman, you will still be starting these threads? This war will not go away.
Thanks for the link and the quote.
Here's a plug for my pinglist:
If anyone wants on the Homosexual Agenda Ping List, pingify me! It's getting crazy since Massachusetts is now "legally" "marrying" homosexuals.
I say there are two kinds of terrorists trying to destroy civilization - the Islamist jihadis, and those who want to destroy marriage and family.
In the big picture, the legalization of homo marriage is significant. What abortion began, this will try to finish..the destruction of family. As far as Revelation, whatever is next has now been initiated with this law, imo.
And it will get much much worse before it gets better.
13 And I looked, and I heard an *angel flying through the midst of heaven, saying with a loud voice, "Woe, woe, woe to the inhabitants of the earth, because of the remaining blasts of the trumpet of the three angels who are about to sound!"
The reason I believe islam is biblical, is because it is the only organized evil on a worldwide scale that has and is causing such destruction and war. Almost all wars ongoing are involving islam/..prophetic indeed.

Correction: The Third Seal represents poverty and **inflation. Some say these took place in the days of the Roman Empire. I'm not so sure. How would that far back help those in "that generation" that are witnesses to Christ's return. I don't think it's history. I think it is the future. But only One knows for sure.
Great job, JP!

A federal court in Tucson has given the relatives another two months to prove accusations that their family members died in the treacherous southern Arizona desert in May 2001 because the Interior Department failed to approve the installation of water stations "in the exact area" of the desert where the Mexicans were found dead.
Thanks for that scripture.
And thanks JP for the thread.
Man claims Allah told him to destroy Ferrari
You should start an "End of Times" thread on the basic study of Revelation and how it compares to today's news.
In an official statement, the mainland government warned Taiwan leaders to make choices about the future carefully...
The U.S. has sent its aircraft carrier strike group led by the USS Kitty Hawk to cruise the East Asian region ahead of Thursday's inauguration ceremony.
And, India's stock market crashes, trading is halted.
Include all of St. John's writings, not just Revelations...his Gospel has so much applicable to today. The religious forum at FR would be a great resource for commentary.
Glad we are watching. The rest of the world can't see this:
Supervisors in the Tucson Sector declined to comment for this article. T.J. Bonner, a 25-year veteran of the force and president of the National Border Patrol Council, the union that represents 9,000 rank-and-file agents, confirmed that the documents were authentic. In the documents, agents suggest that amid the crowds and chaos, they are in danger of losing control of segments of the 1,951-mile U.S.-Mexico border
...because they are watching Bruce and Steve run out of the courtroom doors on the evening news [which WILL be the top story].
It wasn't just a Ferrari...it was a civic as well!
That's not good. It will be interesting to see how the assassination of the Iraqi official affects our markets.
Previously unknown group claims responsibility for killing senior Iraqi official
The Associated Press
5/17/04 9:28 AM
DUBAI, United Arab Emirates (AP) -- A previously unknown group claimed responsibility Monday for killing the current Iraqi Governing Council president, saying in a Web site posting that two of its fighters carried out the operation that led to the death of "the traitor and mercenary Izzadine Saleem."
The claim from a group identifying itself as the Arab Resistance Movement was posted on an Internet site devoted to Iraqi issues.
The Web site carried other messages of praise for the killing.
"Two heroic members of the Arab Resistance Movement, Al-Rashid Brigades -- and they are Ali Khaled al-Jabouri and Mohammed Hassan al-Samaraei -- carried out a qualitative heroic operation" that killed Saleem, the statement said.
It said the group will continue its "jihad" or holy war until Iraq and Palestine are liberated.
The Web site carried other messages of praise for the killing. It also prominently mentions Anbar province, a Sunni-dominated area of activity against the U.S.-led coalition in Iraq.
Man, oh man. The world is in chaos.
Prayers for the USS Kitty Hawk sailors and all our military.

Prosecutors say al-Qaida recruited British-born Islamic convert to blow up Israeli embassy in Canberra
The Associated Press
5/17/04 6:37 AM
PERTH, Australia (AP) -- A British-born Muslim convert was recruited by al-Qaida for a plan to blow up the Israeli embassy in Canberra with a truck bomb, prosecutors said Monday on the opening day of the man's trial.
Jack Roche, 50, was told by senior officials in Osama bin Laden's terror network to form a terror cell in Australia to carry out the plot, prosecutor Ron Davies told Perth District Court. The bombing was never carried out.
Roche has pleaded innocent to one charge of conspiring to damage the Israeli embassy by means of explosives, and as a consequence harm diplomatic staff. He faces a maximum sentence of 25 years in convicted.
Prosecutors told the jury Roche traveled to Afghanistan to meet with senior figures from the terrorist organization -- including bin Laden -- in March 2000.
Davies said that Roche had several meetings with one of bin Laden's deputies, identified in court documents as Abu Haifs, and had one meeting with bin Laden himself in which the plan to bomb the embassy was forged.
It was not immediately clear if the court papers were referring to Abu Hafs al-Masri, the alias of Mohammad Atef, a top lieutenant of bin Laden who was killed in a U.S. airstrike in Afghanistan in 2001.
In the indictment papers, Roche reportedly told Australian Federal Police that the man identified as Abu Haifs was bin Laden's second in command.
Roche trained with explosives for 10 days at an al-Qaida camp nine miles from Kandahar, Afghanistan, before returning to Australia and beginning surveillance operations of the Israeli diplomatic building in Canberra, as well as the Israeli consulate in Sydney, Davies said.
He also began recruiting people to take part in the plot and checked the availability of explosives, the court heard.
Ibrahim Fraser, who learned about explosives while working in a mine, told the court he met Roche at a Sydney mosque, where Roche boasted to him several times he was going to destroy Canberra's Israeli embassy -- and that bin Laden had told him to do it.
"He said it was bin Laden's way to remind the people of the problems in Palestine," Fraser told the court. "I thought he was crazy."
Fraser said Roche had asked him how he could get hold of TNT.
Raids on Roche's house in Perth recovered video recordings, still photographs and notes made during the surveillance, the court was told.
Davies quoted Roche's comments in a newspaper interview before his arrest in November 2002, in which he was asked about targeting the Israeli embassy.
"He said he had no qualms about the Israeli people around the embassy ... in his words, not mine, they were fair game," Davies said.
Roche, who is an Australian citizen, converted to Islam more than 10 years ago.
Man's body washed up in water purification center
WAKAYAMA -- A man's body was found in a water purification pump here Monday morning, police said.
The body appeared to have belonged to a man aged from his 50s to his 70s, stood about 170 centimeters tall, was of medium build with salt-and-pepper hair and a goatee.
The body was clad entirely in black and was not wearing shoes.
Investigators added that there were no external injuries on the body.An autopsy will be carried out to determine the exact cause of the man's death and investigators are hurrying to confirm his identity.
Police said a cleaner at the purification plant operating 24 hours discovered the corpse in the early hours of Monday morning. The plant cleans irregularities floating down the Wakagawa River, then diverts clean water into another waterway. (Wire reports, Japan, May 17, 2004)
Seems to be more here than meets the eye. Sounds like he was up to no good.
The Media is the enemy. And none of the anti-christ's plans can come to fruition in a modern day world without it. They will be instrumental in it.
