    Original Title:ISIS Holds Military Parade In Mosul -- Threat Matrix Update: ISIS Holds Parade With Captured US Military Vehicles -- Zero Hedge The Islamic State of Iraq and the Sham's Ninewa Division continues to crank out images of its conquest of Mosul and the surrounding province. Earlier today, the Ninewa Division released photographs of its forces seizing control of several bases, displaying captured military hardware, and executing Iraqi soldiers. Then, the Ninewa Division published a set of photographs of a military parade in the city of Mosul. The photographs provide a glimpse of the ISIS' military strength in Mosul. Scores...
  • Jimmy Carter hails Palestinian unity deal as opportunity for Israel to forge peace

    "It would be impossible to implement any peace agreement between Israel and just one portion of the Palestinians,” the former president wrote in the "Washington Post." The Palestinian unity agreement between Hamas and Fatah offers Israel an opportunity to move the peace process forward since any future agreement would incorporate all of the West Bank and Gaza, former president Jimmy Carter argues in an op-ed he wrote for The Washington Post on Tuesday. “This reconciliation of Palestinian factions and formation of a national unity government is necessary because it would be impossible to implement any peace agreement between Israel and...

    Can you imagine the devastation that would be caused if a massive wall of water several hundred feet high slammed into Florida at more than 100 miles an hour? To many people such a scenario is impossible, but that is what people living along the Indian Ocean thought before the 2004 tsunami and that is what people living in Japan thought before the 2011 tsunami. Throughout history, giant tsunamis have been relatively rare events, but they do happen. Scientists tell us that a mega-tsunami can race across the open ocean at up to 500 miles an hour, and when they...

    JERUSALEM — A small but growing movement by Jewish activists demanding the right to pray at the site of their destroyed temple, in the heart of this disputed capital’s Old City, is creating a potentially explosive clash with the Muslim world, which considers the spot holy and bans Jews from public worship there. Each week, hundreds of Jews ascend the creaky wooden ramp built above the Western Wall and enter what is often called the most contested real estate on Earth. Many then embark upon a game of hide-and-seek with their police escorts — whispering forbidden prayers while pretending to...

    While Barack Obama is busy gutting the U.S. nuclear arsenal, Russia and China are rapidly preparing for the day when they will nuke the United States. To most Americans, it sounds very strange to hear that Russia and China are concerned about nuclear war. After all, isn’t the Cold War over? Isn’t that what politicians from both major political parties keep telling us? Unfortunately, the truth is that Russia and China both consider the United States to be their number one geopolitical threat, and both nations have been systematically strengthening and updating their strategic forces. At the end of...

    Iran could build a nuclear bomb within as little as a month, a new report issued by the U.S. Institute for Science and International Security says. According to the assessment, Iran’s weapons-grade uranium production capabilities are developed to a degree that its “breakout time”—the time needed to convert enough uranium to weapon-grade so as to build a bomb—stands at between one and 1.6 months, and is shortening further. …

    Welcome to Thunder Dome. Well, at least sequestration was supposed to bring about a post-apocalyptic world until President Obama realized Republicans weren’t going to capitulate to his will (again) and raise taxes (again) to replace the sequester he birthed in 2011. There was a distinct change in tone from the White House this week on what sequestration would mean. In little more than a week we went from roving bands of teacherless children wandering darkened streets filled with uninspected rancid meat, illegal aliens and pre-convicted felons released because of lack of funds setting fires there aren’t enough firefighters to extinguish...

Corker, the top Republican on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, said he had been in discussions with the administration, and that he believed it would ask Congress for authorization to take military action. Corker suggested the action would be limited to air strikes and that U.S. forces should not be involved on the ground.

    Islamic messiah Mahdi expected to return with Jesus, kill infidels Iran is again asserting that Armageddon is at hand and that the Islamic regime’s followers, indeed all of Islam, must prepare for a monumental change in the world. Officials of the Islamic regime last month held their annual conference on the Mahdism Doctrine to prepare for the coming of the last Islamic messiah, the Shiites’ 12th Imam, Mahdi. Shiites, whose clerics rule Iran with an iron fist, believe that at the end of times, Mahdi, a 9th century prophet, will reappear with Jesus Christ at his side, kill all the...

    Europe could provide the key to success for a U.S.-brokered resumption of talks between Israel and the Palestinians, prominent American academic Noam Chomsky said Friday. Without intervention by Europe, which could use its political and economic weight, the talks likely won’t amount to much, Chomsky told reporters and guests at the Geneva Press Club, in a visit sponsored by the Swiss foreign ministry. But if Europe broke from American policies supporting Israel, he said, that could swing momentum toward a breakthrough. …

    It has all the outward trappings of another Arab Spring: tens of thousands of demonstrators, a permanent protesters' "camp", and megaphoned demands for the removal of another "dictator". Yet the slogans that now ring out on the streets of Iraq each Friday are the voice of a community not best known for championing civil rights - be it for themselves or anyone else. Instead, they are the disenfranchised members of Saddam Hussein's Sunni minority - the Muslim sect that enjoyed three decades of privileged status under his rule, and which spearheaded the long and bloody insurgency against British and American...

    Former Iraqi Parliamentarian Mithal al Alusi contacted me by phone last week to report that, according to “good sources,” U.S. President Barack Obama is expected to meet soon with Iranian Prime Minister Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. Alusi, who served two terms in Iraq’s Parliament and has promoted normalized relations between Iraq and Israel, has frequently been prescient in alerting the West about developments in Iraq. Last April, he told this reporter that Iraqi politicians were participating in large scale money-laundering and smuggling to help the Iranian regime skirt U.S.-led sanctions, a report which was confirmed several months later by The New York...

    MEGIDDO, Israel -- The Book of Revelation says the biblical fortress of Armageddon will be the site of an apocalyptic battle between good and evil at the end of time. Scientists believe it could also be the place where time begins -- at least for archaeology. In a groundbreaking new project, scholars are using the rich archaeological remains that soar more than 50 feet above the Jezreel Valley in northern Israel to synchronize the clocks of the ancient world and create the first definitive calendar of human history. The word "Armageddon" comes from the Hebrew Har Megiddo, which means mountain...

Whether that is worrisome depends on what's in a name, as Ms. Juliet Capulet, a well-known Italian girl, liked to point out.

    A nuclear-armed Iran would undermine US interests and power, but it would not constitute an unbearable threat to the United States. The Iranian bomb constitutes an existential threat to Israel, not to America. So Israel has good reasons to suspect that the current US Administration is bluffing when it says that all options are on the table to prevent Iran from getting the bomb. The US badly wants out of the Middle East. The war in Iraq is over, and the war in Afghanistan will be over soon. The US does not want to be part of another war. Many...

But, unlike the original movie, this time the heavenly destroyer is much smaller, and it's headed for Washington, D.C. Scientists determine that it will not break up, but will hit intact right in the space between the White House, the Capitol, and the Supreme Court, and a mere stone’s throw from The Federal Reserve and other key centers of power. It is estimated that the impact will obliterate everything...

The New York Times noted with outrage that many of these people were accumulating guns and ammunition in order to defend their 1,500 pounds of MREs and dried brown rice, but stockpiling guns is fine with me. My concern is that most of them seem pretty inexpert with guns. One prepper was counting on...

    Britain's banks have been told to prepare for the end of the Eurozone, it emerged today. City regulator the Financial Services Authority has told banks to ready themselves for armageddon by running "stress tests" on their balance sheets. FSA chief Hector Sants met the heads of Barclays, Satander, HSBC, Lloyds and RBS last week. News of the shock warning came as the world's biggest central banks today launched a desperate bid to save the global economy by flooding markets with cheaper cash.

    LONDON (AP) — Middle East envoy Tony Blair says Barack Obama launched his peace initiative because he's concerned about what might happen to Israel if Palestinians unilaterally declare statehood. Blair told an audience of business leaders gathered in central London on Thursday that Obama is "frankly worried about the position that Israel is in." The ex-prime minister says that Obama's initiative — rejected by Israeli leader Benjamin Netanyahu — is "an attempt to fill a vacuum which he sees as dangerous, particularly dangerous for Israel in the run-up to September." Mideast watchers have speculated that Washington launched its peace initiative...

    The Federal Emergency Management Agency may have enough money to last until the end of the week, raising the possibility that Congress could avert a government shutdown by end of the day on Friday, according to Senate officials familiar with the matter. FEMA officials have not yet commented on the matter, but three Senate officials told POLITICO that the agency signaled to Congress that its depleted funds could last through Thursday, and possibly Friday, which coincides with the end of the current fiscal year. FEMA was initially projected to run out of money as early as Tuesday.

    Will Israel survive? That question hasn't really been asked since 1967. Then, a far weaker Israel was surrounded on all sides by Arab dictatorships that were equipped with sophisticated weapons from their nuclear patron, the Soviet Union. But now, things are far worse for the Jewish state. Egyptian mobs just tried to storm the Israeli embassy in Cairo and kill any Israelis they could get their hands on.
  • Turkey's Erdogan calls Israel's offshore gas drilling 'madness'

    09/21/2011 5:58:41 AM PDT · by jhpigott · 26 replies
    Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan described offshore gas drilling by estranged ally Israel and Cyprus as "madness" on Wednesday, raising the stakes in a confrontation over potentially huge deposits in the eastern Mediterranean Sea. The quarrel over gas has escalated in recent weeks, just as relations between Israel and Turkey abruptly broke down over Israel's refusal to apologize for its raid on a Gaza-bound flotilla last year in which nine pro-Palestinian Turkish activists died. (snip) "The Greek Cypriot administration and Israel are engaging in oil exploration madness in the Mediterranean," Turkish state news agency Anatolian quoted Erdogan as telling...

    Q. What are some of the main differences between the Battle of Gog and Magog, and the Battle of Armageddon? A. This is a vital question to answer, because many people equate the two, or include the first as part of the second. But there are many differences that make these conclusions quite improbable. First there is the time element involved. While no time is specified for the Battle of Gog and Magog, most evangelical, premillennial, pre-Tribulational scholars place it at or near the beginning of the Tribulation. The Battle of Armageddon takes place at the end of the Tribulation...
  • The Marching Rage to Armageddon!

    The Marching Rage to Armageddon! Through out this week we have heard and seen the coverage of the riots which have been taking place in England. As these lawless individuals rage against authorities and powers, they are totally oblivious to the demonic hypnotic state of mind which they possess (Rom. 1:18-32, Jude 1:10). They are held prisoners of themselves from their own delusional subjective narcissistic world of victim status and burning rage. These have reaped their OWN lawless doings and need a scapegoat to destroy and to avenge their own self afflicted adversities (Gal. 6:7). The State - who is...

    Mrs. MindBender and I keep a secure home; passive IR lights, alarm, long weapons in closet, hand guns close, planning, drills, etc. Due to worldwide "problems," we have gone to more lights on, long weapons next to bed, and taking the Glock 23s with extra mags with us whenever out of home 20. Anyone else?
