Title: Britain / USA Tarshish

Britain / USATarshish Young Lions

Bush pushes Jerusalem election issue
  • Headline
  • Bush forces Hamas down Israels throat in
    Jerusalem.
  • Olmert government is stunned - Debkafile January
    9
  • Event
  • Sunday night Jan 8, US secretary of state
    Condoleezza Rice discussed the forthcoming
    Palestinian elections to the legislative council
    on the telephone with Palestinian Authority
    chairman Abu Mazen. Jerusalem was not briefed,
    DEBKAfiles political sources report.
  • Twelve hours later, the US consul in Jerusalem
    Jacob Walles visited Abu Mazens office in
    Ramallah with an oral message from President
    George W. Bush. According to our sources, it was
    a presidential guarantee that all the Palestinian
    parties running for election on Jan 25 would be
    allowed to campaign openly in East Jerusalem. The
    Israeli government was not informed of the
    extraordinary step taken by Bush over its head
    and in respect of Israeli sovereign territory.
  • The step has some disturbing implications
  • 1. The Bush administration took advantage of Ehud
    Olmerts having been less than a week in the job
    of acting prime minister and treated his
    reluctance to undertake firm decisions - as long
    as prime minister Ariel Sharons condition was
    uncertain -as a leadership vacuum in Jerusalem.
  • 2. Olmerts failure to come down decisively on
    the Jerusalem issue has a serious consequence
    Washingtons intercession enables the terrorist
    Hamas group to fly its green flags and hold
    rallies on Temple Mount with its standard calls
    for jihad against Israel, as well as piling its
    voter slips at Israeli government post offices as
    an option for the Palestinian voter. By this
    device, the backhanded recognition of a
    Palestinian terrorist organization sworn to
    destroy the Jewish state has been thrust down the
    interim governments throat.
  • Governing circles in Jerusalem were stunned by
    the White House action.

  • Comment
  • Last week we mentioned in the WWW that on the day
    that Israel was thrown into turmoil with the
    events surrounding Ariel Sharon, the Roman
    Catholic Church made a statement over Jerusalem
    saying that the Jewish people cannot be trusted
    to exercise control over it.
  • Now we find out that during this week President
    Bush himself has intervened over Jerusalem as
    well.
  • He has guaranteed the Palestinian leader Abu
    Mazen that the ALL Palestinians can campaign
    openly in east Jerusalem in the run up to the
    Palestinian elections on the 25th January.
  • As the article stated The Israeli government was
    not informed of the extraordinary step taken by
    Bush over its head and in respect of Israeli
    sovereign territory.
  • Israel had said that Palestinians could not vote
    in East Jerusalem if Hamas took part. Hamas
    publicly advocates the destruction of Israel, and
    has been responsible for hundreds of attacks
    against Israelis.
  • Israel hasn't prevented Hamas from participating
    in municipal elections but Jerusalem is uniquely
    sensitive.
  • President Bushs intervention, allowing Hamas to
    campaign in Jerusalem, is in effect permitting a
    terrorist group that calls for the destruction of
    Israel to campaign publicly in the capital of the
    very country they want destroyed - in Gods Holy
    City.
  • We can understand why therefore the government of
    Israel was stunned by President Bushs
    intervention.
  • Jerusalem is becoming a burdensome stone.
    President Bush has burdened himself with it. His
    fate is decreed below a decree that applies to
    any others who try to move it.
  • Bible Quote Zechariah 12 3 And in that day will
    I make Jerusalem a burdensome stone for all
    people all that burden themselves with it shall
    be cut in pieces, though all the people of the
    earth be gathered together against it.

UK navy too small to defend us
  • Headline
  • Navy too small to defend us, warns First Sea Lord
  • Headline - DT January 15
  • Event
  • Cuts to the Royal Navy's fleet of warships will
    render it incapable of
    protecting Britain's coastline, ministers
    have been warned.
  • Admiral Sir Alan West, the First Sea Lord and
    Chief of the Naval Staff,
    said any further reduction in the
    number of battleships could be fatal
    to the fleet's future. The
    admiral, who is due to retire next month, said
    "I don't think
    anything should ever be sacred but we do have to
    be careful that
    we do not reduce the Navy to a level that makes
    recovery difficult.
    It takes a long time to build up a maritime force
    that can
    cope with both the expected and the unexpected.
    The UK's security
    depends on having the right range of maritime
    capabilities."
  • Comment
  • Tarshish is Britain. Tarshish is mentioned 21
    times in the Bible. 9 times ships are mentioned
    in the same verse as Tarshish. The phrase ships
    of Tarshish occurs 7 times. Tarshish is a
    maritime power. It traded with the Phoenicians
    for tin, lead, iron and silver. (See Ezekiel
    2712) Britain traded with the Phoenicians for
    these metals. 4 times Tarshish is mentioned with
    the word isles or isle. An isle, is an island
    or maritime country. Britain is both. We are told
    in Isaiah 609 that Tarshish's ships would be
    involved in bringing the Jews back to their land.
    Britains ships were involved in this. However,
    we also read that in the end Tarshish will fail.
    Judgement is coming on Tarshish from God. See the
    verse below..
  • The fact the Britains ship numbers are reducing
    may contribute to this.
  • Bible Quote Psalm 48 7 Thou breakest the ships
    of Tarshish with an east wind.

Britain warns Russia over Iran
  • Headline
  • Do not believe Teheran, Britain warns Russia
  • Headline DT January 18
  • Event
  • Britain warned Russia yesterday not to be fooled
    by "vacuous"
    Iranian offers of 11th-hour negotiations
    to avoid being
    reported to the United Nations. As
    diplomats began a campaign to raise support for
    reporting Iran to the UN Security Council, Moscow
    held out the prospect of talks with Teheran on a
    Russian compromise deal.
  • Sergei Lavrov, the Russian foreign minister, also
    warned the West of the dangers of imposing UN
    sanctions on Iran. "We remember the history of
    sanctions against Iraq and know how it all
    ended," he said. "We are still overcoming the
    consequences."
  • Comment
  • Events are beginning to come to a head with Iran.
    Cracks are widening between the permanent members
    of the Security Council. Britain above is warning
    Russia not to be fooled. Russia warns the West
    about imposing sanctions on Iran citing the
    corruption that took place with Iraqi sanctions.
  • Russia here is acting out the role prescribed for
    this nation by God in extremely accurate detail.
    God says in Ezekiel 38 that Russia would act as a
    guard to the nations that invade Israel with
    her. A guard is a protector, a defence, a wall.
    Russia, by defending Iran is acting therefore
    exactly as God said they would.
  • Britain in contrast is Tarshish mentioned in
    verse 13 of the same chapter. Tarshish (Britain)
    questions the invasion of Israel by Russia, Iran
    and other nations.
  • Bible Quote Ezekiel 38 7 Be thou prepared, and
    prepare for thyself, thou, and all thy company
    that are assembled unto thee, and be thou a guard
    unto them.
  • 13 the merchants of Tarshish, ..shall say unto
    thee, Art thou come to take a spoil?

UK diplomats in Moscow spying row
  • Headline
  • UK diplomats in Moscow spying row
  • Headline - DT January 23
  • Event
  • Russia's state security service, the FSB, has
    accused British diplomats of spying in Moscow.
    It backed claims made in a Russian TV report
    which showed footage of what it said was British
    agents retrieving data from a fake rock planted
    on a street. The programme also said a UK
    diplomat made regular payments to Russian
    non-governmental organisations.
  • The UK Foreign Office said it was "concerned and
    surprised", and denied any improper conduct.
  • Prime Minister Tony Blair has refused to comment
    on the Russian claims. During his monthly news
    conference on Monday he appeared to try to laugh
    them off, saying "Look I only saw myself on
    Teletext this morning, the business about
    Russia.
  • Comment
  • More Cold War developments. The Russian bear is
    growling. But what does Britain do? Britain
    laughs nervously. With Bible in hand we know the
    direction that Russia is taking and will take in
    the future.
  • Note as well the reaction of the UK Foreign
    Office. They were concerned and surprised. In
    Ezekiel 38 Tarshish (Britain) reacts with a huge
    amount of concern and surprise when Russia
    invades Israel as it questions what Russia is
    doing. One thing is certain though Tony Blair
    (if still in power) will not be laughing then.
  • Bible Quote Ezekiel 38 13 Sheba, and Dedan, and
    the merchants of Tarshish, with all the young
    lions thereof, shall say unto thee, Art thou come
    to take a spoil? hast thou gathered thy company
    to take a prey? to carry away silver and gold, to
    take away cattle and goods, to take a great spoil?

US military at breaking point
  • Headline
  • US military 'at breaking point
  • Headline BBC online January 26
  • Event
  • The US military has become dangerously
    overstretched because of
    the
    scale of its operations in Iraq and Afghanistan,
    two
    reports have warned.
    One, by former officials in the Clinton

    administration, said the pressure of repeated
    deployments was
    very corrosive and could have long-term
    effects. The second,
    ordered by the Pentagon and yet to be released,
    reportedly
    calls the army "stretched to breaking point".
    About 138,000
    US troops remain in Iraq, on top of deployments
    to Afghanistan and Kosovo.
  • Comment
  • The US is under pressure. It is in effect
    fighting 2 wars. One in Iraq and one in
    Afghanistan.
  • Britain is also under pressure. It announced this
    week that it is preparing to send another 3,500
    troops to Afghanistan. This is a major deployment
    for the UK and there is talk within the army of
    things becoming extremely over stretched. In the
    final war over Israel we know that Russia and its
    allies will in fact overrun Israel and sweep
    through into Egypt. Two thirds living in Israel
    will be killed. Britain and her young lions
    will not be able to prevent this from happening
    as they did in World War 1 and World War 2. The
    overstretched situation therefore may still be
    there when the final invasion takes place. The
    old lion (Britain) the her young lions (USA,
    Australia etc) will be broken. Only the return of
    Jesus will save the remaining Jews.
  • Bible Quote Job 4 10 The roaring of the lion,
    and the voice of the fierce lion, and the teeth
    of the young lions, are broken.

US Europe at odds over Hamas
  • Headline
  • US Europe at odds as Israel cuts Palestinian
    funds
  • Headline DT January 31
  • Event
  • Israel cut off funds to the Palestinian Authority
    yesterday, as Hamas rejected a chorus of
    international demands that it renounce violence
    and recognise the Jewish state.
  • The Israeli move came as America and Europe
    appeared at odds over how to respond to the
    election victory of Hamas in last week's
    Palestinian elections.
  • Differences between the EU and American positions
    were betrayed earlier when the EU adopted a much
    softer position than the US, apparently waiting
    to see what kind of Palestinian government would
    be established.
  • Comment
  • It all eventually will boil (and is boiling) down
    to this. Is it a nation that backs the
    Palestinian / Arab cause or is it a nation that
    backs the Israel / Jewish cause. This is the
    fault line of the whole world. When it comes to
    it, almost all nations will back Arab over Jew.
    The exceptions are Tarshish (Britain) and her
    young lions (US, Canada, Australia, India etc).
    Europe (both political and religious) will back
    the Arab. Russia and her allies (including Iran,
    Libya and northern Africa) will also back the
    Arab. This may seem strange when Europe appears
    to be stirring up hatred amongst its Muslim
    population. However, Europe and Muslim will be
    united in their hatred of Gods people the Jews
    when the final great war eventually begins..
  • The fault line is detailed in the article above
    as the US and Europe already begin to differ in
    their response to the Hamas election victory. US
    with Jew / Europe with Arab.
  • Bible Quote Genesis 16 11 And the angel of the
    LORD said unto her, Behold, thou art with child,
    and shalt bear a son, and shalt call his name
    Ishmael because the LORD hath heard thy
    affliction. The Arab people were descended from
    Ishmael

US prepares military blitz on Iran
  • Headline
  • US prepares military blitz against Iran's nuclear
    sites
  • Headline Sunday Telegraph February 12
  • Event
  • Strategists at the Pentagon are drawing up plans
    for devastating
    bombing raids backed by submarine-launched
    ballistic missile attacks against Iran's nuclear
    sites as a "last resort" to block Teheran's
    efforts to develop an atomic bomb.
  • Central Command and Strategic Command planners
    are identifying targets, assessing weapon-loads
    and working on logistics for an operation, the
    Sunday Telegraph has learnt. "This is more than
    just the standard military contingency
    assessment," said a senior Pentagon adviser.
    "This has taken on much greater urgency in recent
    months. The prospect of military action could
    put Washington at odds with Britain which fears
    that an attack would spark violence across the
    Middle East.
  • Comment
  • The tension is mounting quickly now between Iran
    and the USA. Reports are emerging of a developing
    military plan to attack Irans nuclear sites. The
    difficulty is that this time Britain is a long
    way from backing America on this. The UK has not
    recovered from the dossier produced by Tony
    Blair which said categorically that Saddam
    Hussein had chemical weapons etc. The other issue
    the USA has is over troop numbers it is
    extremely (even dangerously) overstretched. Its
    only solution really is the one above a missile
    strike. The Bible makes absolutely clear that
    Iran is one of the nations that does invade
    Israel. Therefore, as Iran has to do this, there
    is a possibility that no military invasion ever
    does take place against them.
  • Bible Quote Ezekiel 38 5 Persia, Ethiopia, and
    Libya with them all of them with shield and
    helmet

Blair God will judge me on Iraq
  • Headline
  • Blair God will judge me on Iraq
  • Headline DT March 4
  • Event
  • Tony Blair believes he will be judged by God and
    history on whether he did the "right thing" in
    taking Britain to war against Iraq three years
    ago. Interviewed by Michael Parkinson, Mr Blair
    said he "struggled" with his conscience over the
    decision to join the US-led invasion.
  • More than 100 British servicemen, as well as
    thousands of Iraqis have died in the continuing
    insurgency. It was the frankest admission Mr
    Blair has yet made about how his religious
    beliefs influence his actions as Prime Minister,
    particularly the life and death decisions
    involved in military action. Mr Blair said he
    made policy decisions according to his
    conscience, which is guided by his Christian
    faith. But he did not go as far as President
    George W Bush who reportedly claimed that his
    decision to invade Iraq was "a mission from God".
  • Comment
  • Judgement is coming Tony Blair is right on that
    score. Judgement is coming on Britain the Bible
    makes clear in a number of places. See Isaiah
    231 - 14
  • It is interesting that President Bush and now
    Tony Blair both claim to have been influenced by
    religious beliefs in regard to the invasion of
    Iraq. President Bush even said he was on a
    mission from God.
  • The point is this - leaders of the world are
    influenced by God. He uses godless men to bring
    about his judgements. See the verse below when
    God used Nebuchadnezzar!
  • Bible Quote Jeremiah 25 9 Behold, I will send
    and take all the families of the north, saith the
    LORD, and Nebuchadnezzar the king of Babylon, my
    servant, and will bring them against this land,

11
US We wont let Iran go nuclear
  • Headline
  • We won't let Iran go nuclear, warns Cheney
  • Headline DT March 8
  • Event
  • The Bush administration yesterday forced Russia
    to abandon a compromise proposal over Iran's
    nuclear programme as it stepped up the pressure
    on Teheran.
  • In the most hawkish rhetoric from a senior US
    official in months, the vice-president, Dick
    Cheney, said Iran would not be allowed to have
    nuclear weapons and hinted at the use of force if
    it pressed ahead with its nuclear programme.
  • "For our part, the United States is keeping all
    options on the table. We will not allow Iran to
    have a nuclear weapon. he said
  • His remarks to the annual conference of the
    pro-Israel lobbying group, AIPAC, were a marked
    change from the diplomatic language over the past
    year.
  • Comment
  • We really are seeing the nations lining up
    exactly as prophesied in the scriptures. Russia
    backing Iran. This is mentioned in Ezekiel 38. In
    Bible language we read of Gog and Persia. In the
    article above we see the USA backing Israel
    this is also mentioned in Ezekiel 38. In Bible
    language we read of Israel and the young lions of
    Tarshish. Note on the wall behind Dick Cheney the
    merged flags of Israel and America!
  • We are not just trying to fit modern events into
    Biblical passages. Over 150 years ago in the
    preface to his book Elpis Israel, John Thomas
    wrote "Russia's mission is to reduce all the
    nations of the Old World, save Britain and her
    dependencies. !!
  • Bible Quote Ezekiel 38 13 Sheba, and Dedan, and
    the merchants of Tarshish, with all the young
    lions thereof , shall say unto thee, Art thou
    come to take a spoil? hast thou gathered thy
    company to take a prey?

12
Teheran threatens US
  • Headline
  • Teheran threatens to inflict 'harm and pain' on
    US over
    nuclear row - Headline DT March 9
  • Event
  • Iran issued a chilling threat to inflict "harm
    and pain" on America yesterday as it headed for
    confrontation at the United Nations Security
    Council over its suspected nuclear weapons
    programme. Teheran's most overt menaces to date
    were repeated several times at the meeting of the
    governing board of the International Atomic
    Energy Agency. Iranian officials declined to
    spell out precisely what Iran would do.
  • But experts say Iran's options include driving up
    oil prices, blocking the passage of tankers
    through the Gulf, stirring more chaos in Iraq,
    fomenting violence against Israel or promoting
    terrorist attacks against the West. Iran's
    threats came as the United States gave warning
    that Teheran had in the past six months produced
    enough intermediate uranium compounds to make 10
    nuclear bombs if its enrichment programme was not
    halted.
  • Comment
  • Iran is the modern area of the ancient land of
    the Medes. We read in Jeremiah that the kings of
    the Medes are raised up to attack Babylon (modern
    day Iraq). It is interesting that we have a king
    of the Medes whose spirit has been raised up.
    America has accused Iran of sending men into Iraq
    to help train, arm and fight in Iraq. There have
    been rumours of Iranian involvement in Iraq since
    before the 2003 war began. There could well be
    further destruction in the land of Iraq. Iran
    will have to go through Iraq on the way through
    to Israel.
  • Bible Quote Jeremiah 51 11 Make bright the
    arrows gather the shields the LORD hath raised
    up the spirit of the kings of the Medes for his
    device is against Babylon, to destroy it because
    it is the vengeance of the LORD, the vengeance of
    his temple.

Human rights defeat for US
  • Headline
  • Human rights defeat for US
  • Headline DT March 16
  • Event
  • America's attempt to derail a new human rights
    body for the United Nations was foiled in a
    landslide vote yesterday, with nations as diverse
    as Britain and Cuba ignoring Washington's plea
    for rejection. In an unusual display of
    near-unanimity, the world body voted 170-4 to
    create a Human Rights Council to replace its
    discredited predecessor, the Commission on Human
    Rights.
  • The council's creation has been described as the
    centrepiece of attempts to reform the UN's
    archaic machinery and the American No vote is
    widely seen as a gloomy omen for the new body.
    Delegates applauded after giant screens in the
    UN's general assembly showed only America, Israel
    and two tiny pro-American Pacific island states
    voting against.
  • Comment
  • America and Israel (were almost) alone out of the
    entire world in voting against this new human
    rights body. The motives of Israel and the US
    voting in this way are not clear. But one thing
    is clear. Human Rights tend to create
    anti-Semitism. Human rights say that man has the
    answer NOT God. They promote godlessness and
    wickedness. Since the 1789 declaration of the
    rights of man 2 world wars have been fought. 6
    million Jews have been killed. With the complete
    rejection of the Bible as having any authority at
    all, anti Jewish feeling increases in the world.
    The UN and human rights organisations almost
    always come down against Israel.
  • Bible Quote Revelation 16 14 For they are the
    spirits of devils, working miracles, which go
    forth unto the kings of the earth and of the
    whole world, to gather them to the battle of that
    great day of God Almighty.

Immorality in the UK
  • Headline
  • Election of lesbian bishop 'will cause Church to
    unravel
  • New attitude to gay sailors has cut 'unhealthy
    secrecy'
  • Headline DT March 12 17
  • Event
  • An Anglican clergywoman in a long-term, same-sex
    relationship is set to become the first lesbian
    bishop, causing uproar among traditionalists. The
    evangelical wing of the worldwide Anglican
    Communion has said that the election of the Rev
    Bonnie Perry will lead to the "unravelling" of
    the Church.
  • The chief of Royal Navy personnel said yesterday
    that it was "unhealthy" that until recently gay
    sailors had been forced to keep their sexuality
    secret.
  • Vice-Admiral Adrian Johns revealed the Navy's new
    attitude towards homosexuals before giving a
    speech entitled "Reaping the rewards of a
    gay-friendly workplace."
  • At a conference in London organised by Stonewall,
    the homosexual rights campaign group, the Second
    Sea Lord said the Navy was now accommodating gays
    and lesbians.
  • Comment
  • Tarshish is in trouble. Immorality now pervades
    every corner of life here in Britain. It is
    absolutely alarming the rate of descent now into
    days like Sodom and Gomorrah. Interesting that
    the NAVY gives a speech like this and then we
    read below that the NAVY of Britain is going to
    be broken. Likewise the state Church which if
    course encompasses the whole Anglican Church
    worldwide will also come to an end.
  • Bible Quote Psalm 48 7 Thou breakest the ships
    of Tarshish with an east wind.
  • Romans 1 18 For the wrath of God is revealed
    from heaven against all ungodliness and
    unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in
    unrighteousness

Powerful Catholic laymen in Britain
  • Headline
  • BBC chief is 'most powerful Catholic layman in
    Britain'
  • Headline DT March 17
  • Event
  • Mark Thompson, the director general of the BBC,
    is the most influential Roman Catholic lay person
    in Britain, according to an analysis by the
    Catholic weekly The Tablet. Ruth Kelly, the
    Education Secretary, who has faced criticism for
    her links with Opus Dei, and Cherie Booth, a
    successful lawyer and the Prime Minister's wife,
    are second and third.
  • The magazine, which publishes its list of the 100
    top Catholics today, said its analysis
    demonstrated how accepted Catholics had become in
    the life of the nation and the establishment.
  • Most of those on the list, which aims to identify
    those who have the greatest impact on public life
    by wielding the most influence or power, practise
    their faith.
  • Comment
  • Protestantism was in effect a rejection of Roman
    Catholicism. It was a protest against Rome. A
    rejection of the Pope and all he stood for. And
    an acceptance of the Bible as the authority.
    There were many reasons for Britain casting off
    Rome not all good. But one of the main ones was
    as people began to read the Bible in their own
    language (English) they began to realise the
    falsehood of the teaching of the Church. We see
    now though in Britain people in very high-up and
    influential positions who are promoting
    Catholicism. The Lord Jesus highlights this
    religion out of all religions in Revelation 17
    when he compares it to a harlot. A harlot that
    all the kings of the earth have fallen for. It is
    totally anti the coming kingdom of God.
  • Bible Quote Rev 5 upon her forehead was a name
    written, MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER
    OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH

Bush warns Iran over Israel
  • Headline
  • Bush warns Iran don't touch our ally Israel
  • Headline - DT March 21
  • Event
  • President George W Bush yesterday issued a stark
    warning to Iran when he said that America's
    military would be ordered into action if Teheran
    carried out its threat to attack Israel.
  • Using the most uncompromising language he has
    employed to date in dealing with Iran's nuclear
    threat, Mr Bush said "I see a threat in Iran.

  • Comment
  • America is using extremely explicit language here
    in reference to Iran and Israel. Iran recently
    threatened to wipe Israel off the map.
    President Bush now tells Iran it will use
    military might to protect its ally Israel.
  • We cannot fail to see how Israel one of the
    smallest countries in the world - is becoming the
    very centre of the worlds attention.
  • The nations are lining up exactly as prophesied.
    Iran wanting to destroy Israel. America (a young
    lion of Britain - the old lion) continues to back
    Israel.
  • The Bible makes clear that Americas military
    might will NOT be enough to protect Israel in the
    coming war. The nations WILL invade Israel and
    overrun it. Only the return of Jesus Christ will
    save the Jewish nation.
  • Bible Quote Daniel 11 44 therefore he shall go
    forth with great fury to destroy, and utterly to
    make away many. And he shall plant the

    end, and none shall help him.

    the world the oil price continues its
    inexorable rise. Oil prices hit new highs this
    week at over 75 per barrel. One of the reasons
    for the rise (apart from increasing demand) is
    this situation in Iran. With prices increasing
    this will effect the economies of the world. As

    of Tarshish (Britain) (See verse below) and she
    has many presents to give orbs, sceptres etc
    that she was given at her coronation as symbols

    during recent exercises, said Igor Khvorov, the
    commander of the Russian 37th air force army
    (strategic aviation).
  • "Our command-post exercises were planned, but

    accused Russia of bullying its neighbours and
    backsliding on democracy in the most scathing
    attack on the Kremlin by a senior American
    official since the end of the Cold War. His
    comments demonstrated how far relations between
    the two countries have soured since George W Bush
    and Vladimir Putin embraced at their first
    meeting in 2001.
  • "In Russia today, opponents of reform are seeking
    to reverse the gains of the last decade," Mr
    Cheney said in a speech to Baltic and Black Sea
    leaders in Vilnius, the Lithuanian capital. "The
    government has unfairly and improperly restricted
    the rights of her people. He went on to accuse
    Russia of using its vast energy supplies as
    "tools of intimidation or blackmail" and of
    undermining the territorial integrity of its
    neighbours. "Actions by the Russian government
    have been counterproductive and could begin to

    of Iraq and urges Mr Bush to return to religious
    principles. The president also questioned the
    creation of Israel asking "how can this
    phenomenon be rationalised or explained?",
    Reuters reported. The president ends the letter
    by appealing to Mr Bush to return to religion.
  • The letter came as foreign ministers met for
    talks on Iran's nuclear crisis., But after three
    hours of discussions in New York, the ministers
    failed to agree on how to tackle the problem of
    Iran's atomic programme.
  • Comment
  • This letter from Ahmadinejad is apparently the
    first from an Iranian president to a US leader
    since Irans 1979 revolution. The price of oil
    actually dropped when news of the letter broke.
    Only to rise again when the content and the
    response of the US was made known! The letter
    came just the day before a decision on whether to
    impose sanctions on Iran. However Russia and
    China would not countenance sanctions saying they
    feared it could lead to another war.
  • And so we see Iran being guarded by Russia or
    protected. Russia is offering to help Iran with

    far. Iran is driving a deeper wedge between
    America (king of the south) and Russia (king of

    proposals to unilaterally redraw
    Israel's boundaries in the occupied West Bank.
    Speaking after talks in Washington with Prime
    Minister Ehud Olmert, he described the Israeli
    plan as "bold".
  • But he urged Israel to resume direct talks with
    the Palestinians and said a unilateral solution
    was a last resort. Palestinians see Mr Olmert's
    plan as a land grab of territory captured by
    Israel in 1967 and have condemned it. Mr Olmert
    said he would exhaust all bilateral options
    before going it alone to set Israel's final
    borders.
  • Comment
  • Israels new prime minister went to America with
    one main purpose. To secure backing from its main
    ally, America, for its planned withdrawal from
    the West Bank.
  • It appears from statements President Bush has
    made that he does have this backing, even if it
    comes with a plea for Israel to exhaust talks
    with the Palestinians first.
  • So by backing this bold Israeli plan, America
    is also implicated in this decision.
  • The plan is to withdraw from land that the Lord
    God has given to Israel. God told them to POSSESS
    it NOT to give it away. In fact the land as
    detailed in Numbers 34 is EXACTLY the same land
    that Israel has possessed since 1967. In 1948
    they did not have the land as detailed in Numbers
    34. Almost at the end of 40 years (a generation)
    Israel is planning to give away the land with
    Americas backing.

    the world's most powerful economies.
  • Comment
  • Russia is heading up the G8 summit this weekend.
    With the situation in Israel, the growing energy
    crisis, and the increasing tensions between the
    nations we can see Gods hand bringing the
    nations to war. Russias deputy prime minister
    declared yesterday that Russia has fully
    recovered its superpower status and it now has a
    global responsibility on the planet and the
    future of the civilisation.
  • We must not fear as we see all these things. We
    shall see the salvation of the Lord.
  • Bible Quote Psalm 37 38 the end of the wicked
    shall be cut off. But the salvation of the
    righteous is of the LORD he is their strength in
    the time of trouble.

'Biggest evacuation since Dunkirk'

  • 'Biggest evacuation since Dunkirk'
  • Headline Daily Telegraph July 18
  • Event
  • The Royal Navy is preparing for "the biggest
    evacuation since Dunkirk" to rescue British
    nationals and Commonwealth citizens from Lebanon,
    MPs were told yesterday.
  • Comment
  • A picture speaks a 1000 words.

    As I stared at this
    picture the

    verse below suddenly came into

    my mind. Here we have before us

    ships of Tarshish
    (Britain)

    going to Cyprus (Chittim) rescuing

    people from Lebanon (where
    the
    city of
    Tyre is!). Could the verse

    below have a latter day fulfilment?

    Could Tyre refer to
    modern Tyre?
    Could the
    ships of Tarshish

    mentioned here be
    modern British

    ships? We know Chittim is Cyprus.
  • The next slide looks in more detail.
  • Bible Quote Isaiah 23
  • 1 The burden of Tyre. Howl, ye ships of
    Tarshish for it is laid waste, so that there is
    no house, no entering in
    from the land of Chittim it is
    revealed to them.

Revolt against Blair over Israel crisis
  • Headline
  • Revolt against Blair over Israel crisis
  • Headline Sunday Telegraph July 30
  • Event
  • Jack Straw, the former foreign secretary, is
    leading a growing Cabinet revolt against Tony
    Blair's handling of the Middle East crisis.
  • Mr Straw heaped pressure on the Prime Minister by
    describing Israeli attacks on Lebanon as
    "disproportionate" and accusing Israel of
    escalating an already dangerous situation.
  • But Mr Blair, who is on a five-day visit to the
    United States, refused to utter any criticism of
    Israeli aggression and even rewrote a speech to
    make it clear that he pins the blame for the
    crisis solely on Hezbollah terrorists.
  • Comment
  • Prime Minister Blair is following the American
    line and backing Israel 100. The trouble for Mr
    Blair is that he has been gradually weakened
    politically over the last 12 months within his
    own party. There is growing dissatisfaction of
    him and his policies. It is interesting though
    despite the increasing pressure he has continued
    to support President Bush and Israel.
  • In terms of the scriptures, we see at the time of
    the end, Britain, standing with her young lions
    BUT perhaps in a state of paralysis. The king of
    the south powers are sufficiently weakened for
    Gog to invade Israel. They are almost bystanders
    looking on in horror at what is occurring. Mr
    Blair maybe the one who says have you come to
    take a spoil. Britain of course IS Tarshish in
    the verse below.
  • Bible Quote Ezekiel 38 13 Sheba, and Dedan, and
    the merchants of Tarshish, with all the young
    lions thereof, shall say unto thee, Art thou come
    to take a spoil?

Airline terror plot in UK
  • Headline
  • Airline plot Was this the next 9/11
  • Headline Associated Press August 10
  • Event
  • Its scope was ruthlessly ambitious, causing
    destruction officials say would have been
    "unimaginable." The alleged plot to take down
    several U.S.-bound planes with liquid explosives
    appears to be unlike anything the world has seen
    in years.
  • Counterterrorism officials said Thursday the
    London plot appears to bear the fingerprints of
    al-Qaida, and may have been "the Big One" they
    have been dreading since Sept. 11, 2001,
    particularly as the five-year anniversary of the
    carnage approaches.
  • More than 20 people have been jailed, terror
    threat levels have been raised to some of their
    highest levels, and hundreds of flights have been
    cancelled worldwide.
  • "The scope or the magnitude of this attack is
    much larger than previous attacks," said Rohan
    Gunaratna, a terrorism expert at Singapore's
    Institute of Defense and Strategic Studies.
  • Comment
  • The age of terror in which we now live began in
    earnest after the collapse of the Jerusalem talks
    in July 2000. The intifada began when Ariel
    Sharon visited the Temple Mount the September
    2000. 9/11 happened a year later. Bali, Madrid,
    London etc have all happened since. We live in
    the age of terror, a Whitehouse spokesman said.
    Terror intense fear. Terrorism the use of
    terror.
  • Jesus said that men would live in a time of fear
    shortly before he returned.
  • Bible Quote Luke 21 26 Mens hearts failing them
    for fear, and for looking after those things
    which are coming on the earth
