Peace in our Time?

The Pentagon says "the leadership of Iran at the highest level" ordered a spate of disruptive attacks over the past two weeks including attacks on an Aramco Saudi oil pipeline and pumping facilities, the recent sabotage of four tankers near the Strait of Hormuz, as well as a May 19 lone rocket attack on the US embassy in Baghdad's protected Green Zone. [1]

The president himself seemed to all but admit this in passing remarks to reporters as he left the White House for a trip to Japan: “We want to have protection in the Middle East. We’re going to be sending a relatively small number of troops, mostly protective,” Trump said. “Some very talented people are going to the Middle East right now. And we’ll see what happens,” he added.[2]

Iran the warmonger nation

Iran has moved its country too close to US bases

Peace in our Time?

Speaking at his address at the celebration of Israel’s 71st anniversary held at the Israeli embassy in Washington, DC Pompeo states " Peace Plan to be Unveiled This Summer, “No Guarantee of Brighter Future for Palestinian"People” (LOL)

An offer he can't refuse

Make him an offer he can't refuse

 

I encourage blog readers to read the article regarding  “Five prophecies fulfilled in 2018” and “Five prophecies to be fulfilled in 2019”.[3] Of particular interest is numbers (1) and (3) with expected fulfillment this year (1); Increased and Prophesied Torah Awakening Among Non-Jews (3); Focus on and Return to the Third Temple.  Number 1 and 3 belong together – the Torah worshiping non-Jews are the Christian-Zionists.  If the third temple ever gets built or sacrifice recommences expect Christian-Zionists to be the biggest supporters. 

If that happens we have come full circle; The M.E. has been balkanized by the American beast thus (in their eyes) fulfilling the promise to Abraham for the Jews to hold sway from the river of Egypt to the Euphrates – under control of Jerusalem ( the harlot city) as per the Yinnon plan. Soon the image of the beast (temple) will be -built and the Christian-Zionist will be the spokesman, mouth piece, propagandist or false prophet (if you want to use the apocalyptic term).  False Christians and false Jews joining together to defy God and “make a name” for themselves; I wonder how that will end?

 

“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” (Zech 12.3).

Time for a laugh

I thought I would end  this post on a laugh. The next link will take you to a classic piece of Saudi Propaganda made with CGI (as it is probably the only way they will win a war).  The movie has been produced in English probably to allow other countries to marvel at Saudi prowess (at least in the digital sphere).  It starts with a Saudi ship delivering "Humanitarian Aid" (LOL) being attacked by Iranian patrol boats. Then all hell breaks loose and the Saudi's end up winning the "war" with the Iranian people cheering their "liberation".    I must say the Saudi's are good at irony and comedy (or do they really believe this?).

"Deal of the century" leak?

The main points of US President Donald Trump’s much-derided plan for the Middle East, the so-called “deal of the century,” were leaked by a Hebrew-language news outlet in Israel . It is difficult to know whether this is a disinformation campaign. The "deal of the century" is a "two state solution" but has many absurdities such as a Chinese raised highway in the sky linking the West Bank and Gaza. Israel keeps their illegal West Bank settlements, the Palestinians get to pay tax to the Jewish state and they have no independent military, they build airports and factories etc in Egyptian Sinai but are not allowed to live there?  If the leak is true it is almost certain that the Palestinians would reject it.

Make your own mind up:

War and Rumors of war

Why Iran and North Korea are best buddies

The American libertarian Tom Luongo a former Research Chemist operates a blog that has an interesting article on the nexus between North Korea and Iran.  He demonstrates convincingly that they split up the job of acquiring a nuclear capability with North Korea making the bombs and Iran perfecting the delivery mechanism. That way they can avoid any agreement because they each have deniability –keeping the “letter” of the law while ignoring the Spirit. It seems that North Korea and Iran have been forced down this route because they cannot conduct détente with the likes of Trump’s Neo-conservative appointments – Pompeo and Bolton who have no interest in peace (only regime change and surrender).    Links posted below…note that the article contains an internal link to Pompeo and his Evangelical –Zionist leanings and his belief that some sort of confrontation must be provoked in order to catalyze the “rapture”.

Oil Sanctions

Wednesday, May 1, 2019 – the avowed deadline of the US “cutoff” of Iranian oil shipments to the last five un-sanctioned customers of the Islamic Republic of Iran. Those nations affected by the embargo are China and India as well as US treaty allies Japan, South Korea and Turkey according to World Israel News (WIN), April 24th, 2019.

The Trump administration renewed its vow early last week  that these countries will no longer be able to purchase Iranian crude oil or other oil  stocks while avoiding US sanctions  as the US administration turns the screws tighter on the Iranians.The move is designed to place added pressure on Iran to halt its progress toward a nuclear weapon even at the expense of US allies.

It is said that the first portion of the sanctions program by the US has reduced Iranian exports of oil from over 2.5 million barrels per day to about one million barrels per day  –  a severe drop in revenues for Iran, which is palpably feeling the economically depressing force. The increased pressure would virtually halt all Iran’s income from world trade if it can be enforced.

The move is extremely hurtful to Iran which exports almost nothing other than oil. The interim period of allowing curtailed exports had been allowed so that Iran’s customers could arrange alternative sources for their feed  stocks of oil. It is said to be a real hardship for some of these nations because the Iranian crude oil is admittedly  the most easily refinable  and some of  the cheapest crude oil on the market. Of these nations, we have read that, even over its objection to the sanctions, President Recip Tayyip Erdogan’s Turkey has quietly made strides in developing other sources.

But China has  just  warned the US not to make any “wrong moves” in the affair. Indeed, a Chinese spokesman for the foreign ministry stated last week that  “Beijing opposes the Trump administration’s ‘unilateral sanctions and so-called long-arm jurisdiction’ over Iran” according to a report in WIN.

Consequences Stated -Will there be consequences for the world if the US enforces the sanctions?

The Iranians have boldly stated that if the US does not relent it may close the Straits of Hormuz to all shipping.Why is that important? Well, to understand why it is,  one needs be familiar with the geography of the Persian Gulf and surrounding lands. Following is a satellite image of the critical waterway. It is just 21 miles (33km) wide at its narrowest point but the designated shipping lane is only two miles wide in either direction. The remaining space is presumably too shallow for safe navigation, thus its name, “The Strait....”

The Persian Gulf is the body of water on the left; the Gulf of Oman (Arabian Sea) is to the right. The Strait is the critical outlet of the Persian Gulf to the open waters of the world’s oceans  and is the “bottleneck” through which about 30% of the world’s crude oil is shipped.

A blockage of this critical waterway would wreak havoc on the world oil markets and cause prices to escalate sharply and perhaps out of control. (Sourced from the splinters news letter).

The Coup in Venezuela

The “big picture” is that Pompeo and Bolton are keen to install an American puppet in Venezuela in order to secure alternative oil sources while they bear down on Iran and cause untold misery for other countries –especially China and Russia (who will not play ball on this).

But why is the USA behaving this way?

Anti-semitic NYT cartoon?

NYT Cartoon Bibbi and Trump

 

The NYT posted a cartoon of Trump being led by Bibbi (Benjamin Netanyahu) that has been widely condemned as anti-Semitic.  It is a fact that global anti-Semitism is on the rise and that is to be condemned but what are the reasons behind the rise in ill-feeling?  Could it be that US Middle East policy is being led by the Neo-Conservatives (predominately Jews) and by Christian-Zionists?   They want to Balkanize the Middle East (and have been successful doing so) creating a flood of refugees into Europe (a death blow to Christianity). The last remaining obstacle is Iran (ancient Persia) who refuses to give up their weapons or watch their country destroyed (who can blame them?).  Of course we know of Iran’s state sponsored terrorism (Hezbollah etc) and their antagonism towards a Jewish state but they are afraid of Zionist (with US support) expansionism.  In the big picture view Zionism and American “exceptionalism” is as dangerous (even more so) than any Russia interference (Gog invasion?).

Blessing the Jews

God will bless those who bless the Jews and curse those who curse them.  If you want to bless the Jews try preaching the Gospel to them without fear or favour…..and remember;

 

       “Concerning the gospel they are enemies for your sake, but concerning 
       the election they are beloved for the sake of the fathers” (Rom 11.28).

 

They must turn return to God and accept his messiah.  Jacob cannot do this in his own strength –or he will find himself wrestling God.  Any land they conquer and any peace deal they conclude will not endure. The curtain is being drawn to one side and people are beginning to see the machinations of Jacob the deceiver. There will be a back-lash:

        “And the ten horns which thou sawest upon the beast, 
        these shall hate the whore, and shall make her desolate 
       and naked, and shall eat her flesh, and burn her with fire” (Rev 17.16).

 

Only when Jacob has overcome his old nature will he be renamed as Israel (God is ruler/prince).

The Peace Plan (update)

See the video link for the video:

Jared Kushner Has A Peace Plan (Passover 2019)

Apparently the peace plan will be announced after the Israeli elections in about two months time. It is true that certain rabbi's are predicting the anointing of messiah at Purim and it is also fact checked that Kushner purchased building 666 in NY. Although the video makes some interesting points we treat it cautiously with a degree of skepticism. It is however interesting to note that other Christians are watching developments in the Middle East so closely.    https://youtu.be/qn09mY79EVY

Trump and the Middle East peace deal after the midterms

With the Democrats winning the House the only way Trump will get anything done now will be by Executive Order. Perhaps a "nice little" war will help the President focus the country and allow him to exercise more executive powers....otherwise he is a lame duck President and will get little done internationally.

This article on the Unraveling of Netanyahu's ME project is worth a read:

The Ultimate Deal

Nothing seems to be happening with the “ultimate deal” (the Trump peace plan) but that is to be expected with the up-coming mid-term elections. If Trump wins “bigly” taking both the house and senate he will have destroyed the Democratic Party. His strategy of divisiveness and confusion seems to be working and he has chalked up big wins with the appointment of SCOTUS and the negation of the Meuller investigation and “Stormy”. The wobbles in the stock market effecting assets values will do little to harm his core constituents.   With a reasonable win under his belt we can expect the peace process to proceed.  Both Trump’s backers and his opponent’s backers are Jewish billionaires with seemingly different agendas.

 

The big picture emerging in the Middle East is that we have an Israel-America-Saudi Alliance supported (at least in part) by other Sunni states (Egypt, Jordan etc) versus Syria-Russia-Iran-Hezbolla (a Shiite alliance). Of course allegiances are complex and often shifting (cf. Turkey). If Israel is “removed” from the equation by making peace with the Sunnis then expect either regime change or war with Iran.  In order to “make peace” the Palestinian problem needs to be neutralized.

Peace is being negotiated by Kushner (Trumps son-in law) with his aide Greenblat, both are Jewish and pro-Israel and no Muslim representative is on the team. Meanwhile the Palestinians are being starved of funds in the lead up to the “peace process”.

According to Robert Fisk, one of two of the Western World's best journalists on Middle Eastern affairs, the Donald's big beautiful peace deal with the Palestinians came down to the Saudi's bank rolling a buyout of Palestinian land.  The question is whether MbS (the prince) and his father are in agreement with this proposal.   It seems that the father of MbS refused and pushed for the original Saudi package which hinged on two States with the 1967 borders dividing the two.

However, after the recent fiasco in Saudi with the journalist it seems that a Saudi Coup is "imminent" as the Crown Prince's uncle arrives to oust "toxic" MbS.[1] We obviously do not know what is going on behind the scenes but recent actions have put MbS in an intolerable position and he already has many internal enemies in the Royal family. Perhaps this reckless, cruel and precipitate action was orchestrated deliberately to damage MbS? Either that or he is incredibly stupid and arrogant. Who knows? What we can say is that everything can change in a moment.

Details of the plan that have “leaked” are (according to Fisk) as follows;

For the drip-feed of detail which is emerging about the Trump-Kushner “ultimate deal” in Israeli newspapers – the venerable Haaretz in the lead – is that Palestinians will have to “abandon East Jerusalem as the capital of a future Palestine”, that Israel will withdraw from a handful of villages east and north of Jerusalem – the measly Abu Dis among them – to create a Potemkin “capital”, but will remain forever in the Old City. That a Palestinian state will be completely demilitarised (so much for “security”), but that every Jewish colony constructed illegally on Arab land – for Jews and Jews only – will remain, and that Israel will control the entire Jordan Valley. Right of return? Forget it....All this nonsense depends on the largesse of Saudi Arabia – whose bungling crown prince appears to be arguing with his kingly father, who does not want to abandon the original Saudi initiative for a Palestinian state with Jerusalem as its capital – and the feebleness of King Abdullah of Jordan, whose country’s IMF-imposed financial suffering has provoked unprecedented riots and the fall of his government, and the support of Egypt’s field marshal/president who will supposedly be happy to impose law and financial benefits on the Egyptian-Gaza border. Oh yes, and there will be no real contact between Gaza and the West Bank. Hamas has been forgotten, it seems…..no East Jerusalem, no end to colonisation, no recognition of the right to return, no state, no future. Just cash.[2]

It is unlikely that the Palestinians will give up their desire for their own state for a “fist full of dollars” even if Gaza can be turned into a “new Dubai” (or Singapore). We shall see what happens, perhaps starvation of funds and humiliation is intended to provoke an all out war that will justify further expulsions.  Who knows?  Everything in the Middle East is up for grabs and things can change very rapidly.
