More of the poisonous fruit of Obama’s “leadership” ……..empowering Islamic jihad in Gaza which, everyone fails to mention, the Jews unilaterally withdrew from.  Obama’s intifada. Good job.

Pali Arabs to complain about Hurva at Arab Summit

They complain about the intolerable fact that the Hurva dome appears to be higher than the Dome of the Rock and is meant to hide the Temple Mount and make the Hurva appear more prominent from many angles.     I love Palestinian Arab “scholarship.”

Incidentally, the best pictures of the Hurva come from Muslim sites complaining about it

How World Vision helped fund a monument to a Jew killer

Andrew Bolt

I’ve already decided not to donate a single extra dollar to World Vision when my current sponsorships run out, But now add to its global warming extremism this (naively unwitting) support of another kind of fanaticism:

Scandal ridden CHARITY group World Vision Australia has been embarrassed by a plan by Palestinian authorities to name a sporting complex containing an Australian-funded soccer field in the West Bank Judea & Samaria after a former militant PLO leader. Read it all

“Expansion of Israeli settlements…shows the Zionist plans to accelerate Judaization of east Jerusalem”

“Iran says Muslims must act over Jerusalem,” from Reuters, via Jihad Watch:

“Expansion of Israeli settlements, destruction of Islamic and Christian sites and wide-scale construction of new synagogues … show the Zionist plans to accelerate Judaization of east Jerusalem and unfortunately it is approved by American officials,” Iran’s Foreign Minister Manouchehr Mottaki said in comments reported on Iranian state radio.

Hugh Fitzgerald offers context:

What “destruction of Islamic and Christian sites” is he talking about? There have been none. Christian sites, however, and Jewish sites, have suffered terribly all over the Muslim-dominated Middle East, not least to synagoges in the Old City of Jerusalem between 1948 and 1967, all but one of which were dynamited, while tombstones from the ancient Jewish cemetery on the Mount of Olives were pulled up and then used to line the floors of Jordanian army latrines.

And what happened to the Church of the Holy Sepulchre in the early 11th century, and to many other Christian sites, continues to this day, where those sites have not simply been appropriated, as the Church of St. John the Baptist in Damascus became part — the most impressive part — of what is now the most famous Umayyad Mosque.

Even the mere discovery of formerly-unkown churches can lead archeologists into hot water. Think of what the Jordanians did to Kathleen Kenyon, who had found too many Christian sites to their liking, in the 1960s — and what happened to those Italian archeologists who found Ebla, in present-day Syria, and a bit too much connected to Jews and Judaism for the liking of the likes of the Syrian government?

I have no idea if the Saudis have been destroying the signs of a Jewish presence in northeastern Arabia, but I suspect that they have been and, for good measure, no doubt wiping out any signs of Christianity too, throughout the Arabian peninsula.

One often wonders what happened to the Nestorians, who practically covered the globe from the Middle East all the way to China, and who expunged what could be — and it was a lot — of the memory of these Eastern Christians. A great deal of history has been physically effaced, and if Muslims had their way in the Holy Land, does anyone doubt what,given their new aggression and self-confidence, the result of OPEC trillions and Muslim millions now living in the West, what they would do to non-Muslim sites? Do you have to guess?

  1. (Found this forthright article on the net. Aaron)


    Many are still unaware of the eccentric, 180-year-old British theory underlying the politics of American evangelicals and Christian Zionists.
    Journalist and historian Dave MacPherson has spent more than 40 years focusing on the origin and spread of what is known as the apocalyptic “pretribulation rapture” – the inspiration behind Hal Lindsey’s bestsellers of the 1970s and Tim LaHaye’s today.
    Although promoters of this endtime evacuation from earth constantly repeat their slogan that “it’s imminent and always has been” (which critics view more as a sales pitch than a scriptural statement), it was unknown in all official theology and organized religion before 1830.
    And MacPherson’s research also reveals how hostile the pretrib rapture view has been to other faiths:
    It is anti-Islam. TV preacher John Hagee has been advocating “a pre-emptive military strike against Iran.” (Google “Roots of Warlike Christian Zionism.”)
    It is anti-Jewish. MacPherson’s book “The Rapture Plot” (see Armageddon Books etc.) exposes hypocritical anti-Jewishness in even the theory’s foundation.
    It is anti-Catholic. Lindsey and C. I. Scofield are two of many leaders who claim that the final Antichrist will be a Roman Catholic. (Google “Pretrib Hypocrisy.”)
    It is anti-Protestant. For this reason no major Protestant denomination has ever adopted this escapist view.
    It even has some anti-evangelical aspects. The first publication promoting this novel endtime view spoke degradingly of “the name by which the mixed multitude of modern Moabites love to be distinguished, – the Evangelical World.” (MacPherson’s “Plot,” p. 85)
    Despite the above, MacPherson proves that the “glue” that holds constantly in-fighting evangelicals together long enough to be victorious voting blocs in elections is the same “fly away” view. He notes that Jerry Falwell, when giving political speeches just before an election, would unfailingly state: “We believe in the pretribulational rapture!”
    In addition to “The Rapture Plot,” MacPherson’s many internet articles include “Famous Rapture Watchers,” “Pretrib Rapture Diehards,” “Edward Irving is Unnerving,” “America’s Pretrib Rapture Traffickers,” “Thomas Ice (Bloopers),” “Pretrib Rapture Secrecy” and “Pretrib Rapture Dishonesty” (massive plagiarism, phony doctorates, changing of early “rapture” documents in order to falsely credit John Darby with this view, etc.!).
    Because of his devastating discoveries, MacPherson is now No. 1 on the “hate” list of pretrib rapture leaders!
    There’s no question that the leading promoters of this bizarre 19th century end-of-the-world doctrine are solidly pro-Israel and necessarily anti-Palestinian. In light of recently uncovered facts about this fringe-British-invented belief which has always been riddled with dishonesty, many are wondering why it should ever have any influence on Middle East affairs.
    This Johnny-come-lately view raises millions of dollars for political agendas. Only when scholars of all faiths begin to look deeply at it and widely air its “dirty linen” will it cease to be a power. It is the one theological view no one needs!
    With apologies to Winston Churchill – never has so much deception been foisted on so many by so few!

    [Also Google “David Letterman’s Hate, Etc.,” “Obama Supports Public Depravity” and “Obama Avoids Bible Verses.”]

  2. I’m not into theology/religion much etc but perhaps someone can get some insight out of this:

    “Move over Michael Moore, you’re about to be beat. The Exodus Conspiracy is a documentary that, in my opinion, will have greater affect on the world than possibly any other film. Check out the website by clicking here.

    The movie’s argument is that a mountain of archaeological evidence confirms the historical accuracy of the Bible’s story about the Israelites, particularly about the Exodus story. ….”

  3. The Harvest is a biblical fact, but the five major rapture theories
    are not 100% biblical proof, most churches believe in post-trib-rap,
    the evangelicals in pre-trib-rap the most biblical one is mid-trib-rap
    as it requires the least of bible text-twisting. it is going to happen but
    the timing depends on the signs.

  4. 1 Thessalonians 4:17 (“caught up”, as a raptor would seize a rabbit)

    1 Thessalonians 4:17 Greek Study Bible (Apostolic / Interlinear)

    ἔπειτα ἡμεῖς οἱ ζῶντες οἱ περιλειπόμενοι ἅμα σὺν αὐτοῖς ἁρπαγησόμεθα ἐν νεφέλαις εἰς ἀπάντησιν τοῦ κυρίου εἰς ἀέρα· καὶ οὕτως πάντοτε σὺν κυρίῷ ἐσόμεθα.

    KJV with Strong’s

    Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air and so shall we ever be with the Lord

    Follow the Strong’s number (726) for ἁρπαγησόμεθα (will be caught up)

  5. Rapture is from the latin “rapiemur” translation of harpazo (greek);
    “snatch away” in english. most biblical term is Harvest (natszal in
    hebrew and theomesis in greek).
    Catholics believe in the post-trib rapture/one event.
    Matthew 24:31, I Corinthians 15:51, I Thessalonians 4:16 and
    Revelation 14;14.
