Moments from death, Saddam offers…

tactical lessons for those globally interested in militancy. It is difficult to sort out Saddam’s very last words. Near the end, Iraq’s national security adviser asked, if he any last words. Saddam’s, reply, NO! and continued, “I am a militant, and I have no fear for myself. I have spent my life in jihad and fighting aggression. Anyone who takes this route should not be afraid.”

Tactical lesson: Choose carefully, have unbending commitment. Only go foreword if you can rise above personal considerations and fears. This is the only way for militants will be able to accept and live with the consequences.

That is one reason why the United States can not win in Iraqi or through out region. Americans are there to capture the regions natural resources through the establishment of military bases. America’s fighting forces with all their military technology and superiority own none of the lessons taught by Saddam. That is, and always has been what wins wars. Furthermore, neither does anyone in the American government, top to bottom. So Americans can expect a humiliating defeat.

Cowards, and weak men like the Iraqi national security adviser, and George W. Bush most likely expected Saddam to beg for his life. Make no mistake the murder of Saddam was an American staged death. Directed right from the White House. One more American tragedy!

Shortly before the trap door collapsed he was taken before a judge. The judge read the verdict of the court. Saddam Hussein shouted, and kept repeating these phrases until the judge shut up! “God is great!” “long live the nation!” long live the people!” “the people will be victorious! and Palestine is Arab!” “Iraqis should fight the Americans and the Persians!”

Once taken to gallows, Saddam continued speaking those phrases. To the shock of his captors who certainly expected him to wither if not physically than at least mentally. Along maybe, with the whole of the Western world.

So great was Saddam’s strength, and composure facing interment death. That the world press badgered the Iraqi government for information concerning the drugs they used to sedate Saddam. Only to be informed that Saddam was completely sober of any narcotic influences. That his character was strong and resolute to the very last moment.

Tactical lesson: Supreme militancy requires absolute defiance. Strength of character and perfect resolution will make losers out of those who sought to be winners.

The United States has no such character or resolution from its troops, its generals, or from George W. Bush. Its superior military weaponry is rendered useless.

Maybe its why many Muslims scoff at the thought that the United States fears the spread of nuclear weapons through out the Middle East. They argue such weapons violate the teaching of the Qur’an. And that Muslims do not need nuclear weapons to defeat the Zionist or the Americans.

Saddam’s daughter Raghad says…

while exiled in Jordan. Asking the Iraqi government to allow her fathers body to be buried in Yemen. She said Yemen will be a temporary burial place. Until Iraq is liberated. Then her father can be reburied in Iraq.

The murder of Saddam on the eve of a Sunni Muslim holiday, one of its holiest days of the year. Helps enshrine him as martyr to many Muslims around the world. The marks of a martyr are statements that are inspirational to his devotees and encourage them to pursue a particular course of action.

On the gallow refusing to be hooded is an act of courage and defiance. A message that did not escape his Sunni Arab loyalists.

Hanging Saddam in a cloud of secrecy while massing many army troops to control public uprisings. Bringing relief to his followers, for they know they have won the day.

A new hell will be unleashed through out Iraq and elsewhere. With the United States being primary targets. Along with their strategic interest globally.

On the gallow platform before the rope was put around his neck, Saddam shouted God is great! The nation will be victorious, and Palestine is Arab! With those words, Saddam sealed his martyr-hood among Sunni Arab Muslims. The battle cry has been issued. Dead men do talk! Woe to the Jews, and the Americans for they are about to endure the wrath of an inspired people.

In his last will, and statement Saddam said that he was ready to day. Urging Iraqis not to hate the people of the nations that had invaded Iraq; just their leaders.

From what we know, Saddam was not a saint, his sins were many. Most certainly a international tribunal should have weighed the evidence from facts presented. A thief caught in the theft of private property. The owner, would not be allowed to arrest, detain, judge, and punish the offender. That is what happened to Saddam.The victims ended up judging and punishing Saddam. A great travesty of justice occurred. And is best summed up by a short statement released by the office of the Holy Father in Rome. Cardinal Renato Martino, Pope Benedict XV1’s minister of Justice issue the following statement. Saddam’s execution punishes a crime with another crime.

Iranian terror managed from world capitals

An Iranian opposition group in exile, the National Council of Resistance of Iran, NCRI. The NCRI states its purpose is to overthrow the Iranian government of Ayatollah Khamenei, and its president, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. On Tuesday, 26 December 06, the NCRI released an alarming brief.

Boldly they highlight the following. Accusing the Islamic Republic of Iran as being directly responsible for eighty percent of terror attacks around the world. Behind this terror is an elite military force. In their brief, they state a number of training bases are located through out Iran. They expose one such base under the leadership of Col. Rezai. Under his command large numbers recruits from Palestine, Lebanon, and Iraq are being trained.

Such training would suggest that the new year will experience continued war through out the region. Israeli newspapers have reported that Israel is engaged in the serious training of its military. They are preparing to fight a war on two fronts at the same time. One attack from Lebanon and the other from Syria. They expect these attacks to occur by July.

Israel is very concerned about Iran’s nuclear ambitions. Again Israeli newspapers have reported that they suspect that Iran will be have nuclear capabilities by February 2007. With that nuclear capability will come all the ingredients for the making of a nuclear bomb.

Of course, one would suspect that the Israelis are very alarmed about these developments. Especially with the Islamic Republic of Iran promising to annihilate Israel. Most likely the world community would not be surprised if Israel or the United States launches an attack upon Iran.

The prospects for a enduring happy new year are rather glum. For this same brief by the NCRI highlights other dangers to the world community. Saying that Iran has the most extensive terror network in the world. Accusing Iran of eighty percent of all major terror attacks in the world. Iranian involvement, according to the released brief, has sometimes been very direct and at other times indirect. The NCRI claims that it is not only very extensive globally, but also sophisticated, and well financed.

How long has Iran been engaged in such sophisticated terror. According to the NCRI, at least two decades. But its not just limited to the Iranian neighborhood. Its outreach is global. Using its embassies as coordination centers to ignite terror attacks. Taking advantage of diplomatic immunity for its well trained agents posing as diplomats. That allows Iranian agents to facilitate the receiving of messages and supplies. Even weapons, and other military equipment is channeled through its embassies, according to the NCRI.

Britain’s Blair got it right

The world is filled with thousands of media outlets churning out constant news concerning the Middle East. It’s like the rest of the world does not exist by comparison of the coverage.

Middle East news can be summed in a brief sentence that everyone can understand. All because the Middle East is constantly making news. Which is to say, it’s a messy place. Meaning there is no apparent resolution for that troubled area of the world.

Western global powers, and their cohorts in the news industry see the struggle there through the lens of secular disturbances of one sort or the other. When a politician, like Britain’s Tony Blair, states, “We have to wake up. The forces of extremism based on warped and wrongheaded misinterpretations of Islam-aren’t fighting a conventional war.” source: Jill Lawless, Associated Press

What Prime Minister Blair fails to understand, as do his media associates like, Ms. Lawless. Is that Islamic forces are not fighting a warped and misinterpretation of Islam. These Muslim warriors are not extremists. They are traditionalists doing what their Prophet Muhammad acknowledged was Allah’s instructions.

For readers interested, type West Siege in the “find link” for sources. Additional postings (20) type Allah.

What is happening in the Middle East is a struggle about who’s God will reign in Jerusalem. If Allah reigns, the world will convert to Islam. The Jew’s will be annihilated! If Christ reigns from Jerusalem, Muslims forces will be destroyed. Jews will take their rightful place in God’s kingdom as his chosen people. All people regardless of religion, or no religion, will convert to Christianity or spend eternity in damnation.

It may be difficult for most politicians, and media outlets, along with most of the world community to accept such a scenario for the world. That’s what makes events in the Middle east so fascinating. Being able to see Biblical pronouncements become realities. Wondering if it was just coincidental or God fulfilling promises.

Making the Middle East even more fascinating is that Islam also sees the world heading to an end of its sufferings and struggles. Always in turmoil as the world seeks peace and Justice which is not attainable until the end. When Jerusalem inhabits its rightful ruler.

If there is not going to be Divine intervention, in the Middle East. As two of the world’s major religions believe, then the world is headed for tumultuous and catastrophic experiences. Because religious madness knows no appeasement, therefore, for the future of humanity, a politician had better come foreword and find resolution.

Hopefully tomorrows posting will deal with the Gog and Magog which is the Christian perspective which will usher in the reign of Christ from Jerusalem.

Checkmate

Two players sit across from each other contemplating how to checkmate the opposing king. But bound, by specific rules of play. What if those sixteen pieces of six kinds, could communicate with the mover of those pieces. Would the mover be motivated to make different moves; resulting in a possible different end? Most likely not because the mover is in control, and ultimately selects the moves, and associated consequences.

Think of humanity as players contemplating how to checkmate opposing nations. For this scenario, the Bible is considered the binding rules of play. One of the players in this game is Israel. The other player is represented by the remaining nations. In this game of life there are far more than sixteen pieces of six kinds. The pieces representing nations and the kinds representing people.

The problem one might conclude is that the players Israel and the other nations are driven to ignore the rule book. And the worlds people who might be able steer the players to a different checkmate. It could be argued that ignoring the book of rules or efforts to steer a different course is responsible for our current world dilemma.

In a time far in the past a Jew created a people. This Jew being a God said, let us (plural) (suggests why Jews are God’s this God’s favorite people) make man in our own image, after our (plural) image, Genesis 1: 26. The emphasis is on the plural because in the previous posting an argument was presented that more than one God exists. Maybe out there somewhere in a place called heaven. For those who have not read that posting type in the find link Micah. Here we have another suggestion that such a scenario exists. At any rate to continue the argument the same suggestion exists in Genesis 1:1. In the Hebrew God is translated Elohim. Elohim is a plural noun suggesting more than one God.

From Genesis, we will fast foreword to Ezekiel. Where a prophecy foretells the regathering of a disobedient Israeli people into a rich and powerful nation. In Ezekiel 36, from other countries. I will bring you to your land, verse 24. You will dwell in the land that I gave to your fathers, verse 28. Prophecy fulfilled in 1948. I will multiply the fruit of the tree, and the increase of the field, verse 30. Israel the land of plenty from a barren desert, verses 34-38.

Israel the recipient of many checkmates is now the chess-master of the Middle East. Surrounded by helpless Islamic nations wanting to exercise the ultimate checkmate. The annihilation of this Jewish state.

Another prophecy exists that a personality known as Gog will lead Magog a collection of nations against Israel. The next posting will discuss Gog and Magog.

Islam and Christianity forces for global destruction

The idiom, “go to hell in a hand-basket,” certainly is an appropriate idiom when looking at world events today. Go to hell in a hand-basket suggest going somewhere without much resistance. Ending in hell in a figurative manner suggest absolute ruin.

Consider these events. Just yesterday, Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, once again said that Israel will be wiped out like the Soviet Union. His latest diatribe came at the end of his two day conference which attempted to cast doubt on the Holocaust. Which of course is ridiculous because the historical record is just to overwhelming. Ahmadinejad, is one of those people on the world stage traveling with that handbaskest clutched comfortably in his hand as the world teeters on the brink of absolute ruin.

Some people ask why the concern? People have difficulty accepting any scenario of a modern world leader moving to obliterate a nations people. Despite the history; with some of that history being very modern. Never the less they insist, Ahmadinejad is just another politician. Making a lot of noise which is just rhetoric with lots of bark and no bite. What may not be understood is that his rhetoric is more than just persuasive language and his rhetoric will have plenty of bite if the world community allows Iran to become a nuclear power. The world community will stall just long enough to allow Iran to join the nuclear club. But Israel will not because the Israelis have to much history when it comes to threats and then actions for their eradication as a people.

The Israelis clearly understand the rhetoric of Ahmadinejad’s filth which puked from his mouth as he denounced the right of Israel to exist. Ahmadinejad is the head of an Islamic state whose government is entirely based on Qur’an. The Qur’an teaches that Israel must be exterminated because Israel has done evil in the world. One of those evils is that the Palestinians were victimized by the West. When they carved a piece of land out of Palestine, for the Zionist state. Arguing that the Palestinians are the real victims of the second World War. So the real purpose of Ahmadinejad’s Tehran Holocaust conference. Was indeed to use the world stage to discredit the Holocaust so as to secure world opinion. As Iran moves to take away from Israel what does not belong to them, and return it the Palestinians.

A share holder of that hand-basket to hell is the Palestinian Hamas. In the person of Ismail Haniyeh, they condemned the West for its arrogance in wanting Humas to accept the Zionists for the usurpation of Palestinian lands. And to stop Palestinian jihad and resistance. Haniyeh rejected any obligation of Humas to honor any past agreements with the Zionist neighbor. Going on to say that Humas will never recognize the usurper Zionist government. Insisting that Humas will continue the jihad like movement until Jerusalem is liberated.

In the end, one of two holy books will prevail with the appropriate historical solution. Both the Holy Qur’an and the Holy Bible announce the remedy. The remedy for the Islamic, Zionist conflict is a religious and not a political remedy. It will play out accordingly to one of those two Holy Books. Leaving either the followers of Islam or Christianity to enjoy the final remedy.

But what if the contents, of those Holy Books are based upon the purest and most persuasive rhetoric ever devised? And without any prophetic remedy? Should that be the case, as many believe, then that hand-basket will have no resistance with the global community destined for a hellish ruin

Sixty years ago, 7:55 AM

On this day 65 years ago Japan rained its bombs upon our U.S. ships at Pearl Harbor. Thus launching the nation into World War 11.

“There are many lessons from that time to our time, none greater than the idea of a nation greater that the sums of its parts,” Tom Brokaw.

Always will we remember the character of the onslaught against us. No matter how long it may take us to overcome this premeditated invasion, the American people in their righteous might will win through to absolute victory, so help us God,” Franklin D. Roosevelt.

“In the annals of American history, only a few events are so well known and so deeply rooted in national remembrance that the mere mention of their date suffices to describe them. Of these occurrences none could have had more significances to our Nation than December 7, 1941. On that Sunday morning, the Imperial Japanese Navy launched an unprovoked surprise attack upon units of the Armed Forces of the United States stationed at Pearl Harbor, Hawaii. This attack claimed 2,403 Americans, wounded 1,178 more, and damaged our naval capabilities in the Pacific. Such destruction seared the memory of a generation and galvanized the will of the American people in a fight to maintain our right to freedom without fear. Every honor is appropriate for the courageous Americans who made the supreme sacrifice for our nation at Pearl Harbor and in many battles that followed World War 11. Their sacrifice was for a cause, not for conquest; for a world that would be safe for future generations. Their devotion must never be forgotten,” Ronald Reagan.

We are not greater than the sun of our parts; today. Nor are we a galvanized nation committed to making America safe. let alone the world. Many reasons lie at our doorsteps for this American tragedy. None is greater than our immigration policies. Unless it is the threat posed by Muslims within our borders and the threat of Islam world wide.
