ISIS "Declares War on Christians"

Article Source: Virtual Jerusalem 







Islamic State (ISIS) has published a new edition of the propaganda booklet Dabiq, which is again signaling its primary enemy - Christianity. 

On the cover page of the booklet is a photo of the Vatican bearing the ISIS flag, along with the terror group's desires to conquer Rome and "break the cross." 

According to some Islamic traditions, the founder of Islam Mohammed predicted that the occupation of the three cities of Istanbul, Jerusalem and Rome pave the way for the appearance of the Mahdi, the Islamic Messiah. 
The declaration surfaces amid growing concern over the widespread persecution of Christians in the Middle East.

The cause sparked a joint conference between the International Christian Embassy in Jerusalem (ICEJ) and the World Jewish Congress (WJC) in Jerusalem earlier this week, and an impassioned speech on regional issues by an Israeli Christian Arab leader to the UN Human Rights Council (UNHRC) last month. 

"Across the Middle East, in the last ten years, 100,000 Christians have been murdered each year. That means that every five minutes a Christian is killed because of his faith," Father Gabriel Nadaf, who has campaigned for Christian Arab rights and for local Christians to support Israel, told the UNHRC in September.

"Those who can escape persecution at the hands of Muslim extremists have fled... Those who remain, exist as second if not third class citizens to their Muslim rulers."

Some 12 million Christians were estimated to have lived in the Middle East in total, according to a July estimate in the Guardian, but that number has been thought to have decreased drastically since ISIS's summer takeover in Iraq.

The Christian community has faced dire persecution in a variety of Middle Eastern countries over the past 2-3 years, with a systemic crackdown on religious dissidents intensifying as the region shifted more toward radical Islam. 

In Egypt, Coptic Christians have been targeted by violence from the Muslim Brotherhood ad Salafi groups. In Syria, Al-Qaeda linked rebels have threatened to kill Christians who do not join the fight against President Bashar Al-Assad.

Iran has persecuted Christians relentlessly as well, recently making headlines for burning the lips of a Christian man caught eating 
during the Ramadan fast. 

City of Houston Subpoenas Sermons: Houston Pastors Persecuted or Not?



The city of Houston has issued subpoenas demanding a group of pastors turn over any sermons dealing with homosexuality, gender identity or Annise Parker, the city’s first openly lesbian mayor. And those ministers who fail to comply could be held in contempt of court.
“The city’s subpoena of sermons and other pastoral communications is both needless and unprecedented,” Alliance Defending Freedom attorney Christina Holcomb said in a statement. “The city council and its attorneys are engaging in an inquisition designed to stifle any critique of its actions.”
ADF, a nationally-known law firm specializing in religious liberty cases, is representing five Houston pastors. They filed a motion in Harris County court to stop the subpoenas arguing they are “overbroad, unduly burdensome, harassing, and vexatious.” 
“Political and social commentary is not a crime,” Holcomb said. “It is protected by the First Amendment.”
The subpoenas are just the latest twist in an ongoing saga over the Houston’s new non-discrimination ordinance. The law, among other things, would allow men to use the ladies room and vice versa.  The city council approved the law in June.
The Houston Chronicle reported opponents of the ordinance launched a petition drive that generated more than 50,000 signatures – far more than the 17,269 needed to put a referendum on the ballot.
However, the city threw out the petition in August over alleged irregularities.
After opponents of the bathroom bill filed a lawsuit the city’s attorneys responded by issuing the subpoenas against the pastors.
The pastors were not part of the lawsuit. However, they were part of a coalition of some 400 Houston-area churches that opposed the ordinance. The churches represent a number of faith groups – from Southern Baptist to non-denominational.
“City council members are supposed to be public servants, not ‘Big Brother’ overlords who will tolerate no dissent or challenge,” said ADF attorney Erik Stanley.  “This is designed to intimidate pastors.”
Mayor Parker will not explain why she wants to inspect the sermons. I contacted City Hall for a comment and received a terse reply from the mayor’s director of communications.
“We don’t comment on litigation,” said Janice Evans.
However, ADF attorney Stanley suspects the mayor wants to publicly shame the ministers. He said he anticipates they will hold up their sermons for public scrutiny. In other words – the city is rummaging for evidence to “out” the pastors as anti-gay bigots.
Among those slapped with a subpoena is Steve Riggle, the senior pastor of Grace Community Church. He was ordered to produce all speeches and sermons related to Mayor Annise Parker, homosexuality and gender identity.
The mega-church pastor was also ordered to hand over “all communications with members of your congregation” regarding the non-discrimination law.
“This is an attempt to chill pastors from speaking to the cultural issues of the day,” Riggle told me. “The mayor would like to silence our voice. She’s a bully.”
Rev. Dave Welch, executive director of the Texas Pastor Council, also received a subpoena. He said he will not be intimidated by the mayor.
“We’re not afraid of this bully,” he said. “We’re not intimidated at all.”
He accused the city of violating the law with the subpoenas and vowed to stand firm in the faith.
“We are not going to yield our First Amendment rights,” Welch told me. ‘This is absolutely a complete abuse of authority.”
Tony Perkins, the head of the Family Research Council, said pastors around the nation should rally around the Houston ministers.
“The state is breaching the wall of separation between church and state,” Perkins told me. ‘Pastors need to step forward and challenge this across the country. I’d like to see literally thousands of pastors after they read this story begin to challenge government authorities – to dare them to come into their churches and demand their sermons.”
Perkins called the actions by Houston’s mayor “obscene” and said they “should not be tolerated.”
“This is a shot across the bow of the church,” he said.
This is the moment I wrote about in my book, “God Less America.” I predicted that the government would one day try to silence American pastors. I warned that under the guise of “tolerance and diversity” elected officials would attempt to deconstruct religious liberty. 
Sadly, that day arrived sooner than even I expected.
Tony Perkins is absolutely right. Now is the time for pastors and people of faith to take a stand.  We must rise up and reject this despicable strong-arm attack on religious liberty. We cannot allow ministers to be intimidated by government thugs.
The pastors I spoke to tell me they will not comply with the subpoena – putting them at risk for a “fine or confinement, or both.”
Heaven forbid that should happen. But if it does, Christians across America should be willing to descend en masse upon Houston and join these brave men of God behind bars.
Pastor Welch compared the culture war skirmish to the 1836 Battle of San Jacinto, fought in present-day Harris County, Texas. It was a decisive battle of the Texas Revolution.
“This is the San Jacinto moment for traditional family,” Welch told me. “This is the place where we stop the LGBT assault on the freedom to practice our faith.”
We can no longer remain silent. We must stand together - because one day – the government might come for your pastor.

4 Fireballs Spotted In Sky Along U.S.A. East Coast, Midwest

Article Source: Huffington Post



The abundance of fireballs caught the attention of the twitterverse. "Is it possible that these [four] events are related to a recent (but very small) fragmentation event from a parent body," Twitter user Kevin Heider asked the American Meteor Society in a tweet Wednesday.
Actually, the society said evidence suggests that the fireballs were unrelated.
No matter what, the fireballs put on a spectacular show--just check out the photo below:

Henry Kissinger on Putting Together of a New World Order

Article Source: Wall Street Journal








Libya is in civil war, fundamentalist armies are building a self-declared caliphate across Syria and Iraq and Afghanistan's young democracy is on the verge of paralysis. To these troubles are added a resurgence of tensions with Russia and a relationship with China divided between pledges of cooperation and public recrimination. The concept of order that has underpinned the modern era is in crisis.
The search for world order has long been defined almost exclusively by the concepts of Western societies. In the decades following World War II, the U.S.—strengthened in its economy and national confidence—began to take up the torch of international leadership and added a new dimension. A nation founded explicitly on an idea of free and representative governance, the U.S. identified its own rise with the spread of liberty and democracy and credited these forces with an ability to achieve just and lasting peace. The traditional European approach to order had viewed peoples and states as inherently competitive; to constrain the effects of their clashing ambitions, it relied on a balance of power and a concert of enlightened statesmen. The prevalent American view considered people inherently reasonable and inclined toward peaceful compromise and common sense; the spread of democracy was therefore the overarching goal for international order. Free markets would uplift individuals, enrich societies and substitute economic interdependence for traditional international rivalries. 
This effort to establish world order has in many ways come to fruition. A plethora of independent sovereign states govern most of the world's territory. The spread of democracy and participatory governance has become a shared aspiration if not a universal reality; global communications and financial networks operate in real time.
The years from perhaps 1948 to the turn of the century marked a brief moment in human history when one could speak of an incipient global world order composed of an amalgam of American idealism and traditional European concepts of statehood and balance of power. But vast regions of the world have never shared and only acquiesced in the Western concept of order. These reservations are now becoming explicit, for example, in the Ukraine crisis and the South China Sea. The order established and proclaimed by the West stands at a turning point.
First, the nature of the state itself—the basic formal unit of international life—has been subjected to a multitude of pressures. Europe has set out to transcend the state and craft a foreign policy based primarily on the principles of soft power. But it is doubtful that claims to legitimacy separated from a concept of strategy can sustain a world order. And Europe has not yet given itself attributes of statehood, tempting a vacuum of authority internally and an imbalance of power along its borders. At the same time, parts of the Middle East have dissolved into sectarian and ethnic components in conflict with each other; religious militias and the powers backing them violate borders and sovereignty at will, producing the phenomenon of failed states not controlling their own territory.
The challenge in Asia is the opposite of Europe's: Balance-of-power principles prevail unrelated to an agreed concept of legitimacy, driving some disagreements to the edge of confrontation.
The clash between the international economy and the political institutions that ostensibly govern it also weakens the sense of common purpose necessary for world order. The economic system has become global, while the political structure of the world remains based on the nation-state. Economic globalization, in its essence, ignores national frontiers. Foreign policy affirms them, even as it seeks to reconcile conflicting national aims or ideals of world order.
This dynamic has produced decades of sustained economic growth punctuated by periodic financial crises of seemingly escalating intensity: in Latin America in the 1980s; in Asia in 1997; in Russia in 1998; in the U.S. in 2001 and again starting in 2007; in Europe after 2010. The winners have few reservations about the system. But the losers—such as those stuck in structural misdesigns, as has been the case with the European Union's southern tier—seek their remedies by solutions that negate, or at least obstruct, the functioning of the global economic system.
The international order thus faces a paradox: Its prosperity is dependent on the success of globalization, but the process produces a political reaction that often works counter to its aspirations.

A third failing of the current world order, such as it exists, is the absence of an effective mechanism for the great powers to consult and possibly cooperate on the most consequential issues. This may seem an odd criticism in light of the many multilateral forums that exist—more by far than at any other time in history. Yet the nature and frequency of these meetings work against the elaboration of long-range strategy. This process permits little beyond, at best, a discussion of pending tactical issues and, at worst, a new form of summitry as "social media" event. A contemporary structure of international rules and norms, if it is to prove relevant, cannot merely be affirmed by joint declarations; it must be fostered as a matter of common conviction.
The penalty for failing will be not so much a major war between states (though in some regions this remains possible) as an evolution into spheres of influence identified with particular domestic structures and forms of governance. At its edges, each sphere would be tempted to test its strength against other entities deemed illegitimate. A struggle between regions could be even more debilitating than the struggle between nations has been.
The contemporary quest for world order will require a coherent strategy to establish a concept of order within the various regions and to relate these regional orders to one another. These goals are not necessarily self-reconciling: The triumph of a radical movement might bring order to one region while setting the stage for turmoil in and with all others. The domination of a region by one country militarily, even if it brings the appearance of order, could produce a crisis for the rest of the world.
A world order of states affirming individual dignity and participatory governance, and cooperating internationally in accordance with agreed-upon rules, can be our hope and should be our inspiration. But progress toward it will need to be sustained through a series of intermediary stages.
To play a responsible role in the evolution of a 21st-century world order, the U.S. must be prepared to answer a number of questions for itself: What do we seek to prevent, no matter how it happens, and if necessary alone? What do we seek to achieve, even if not supported by any multilateral effort? What do we seek to achieve, or prevent,only if supported by an alliance? What should we not engage in, even if urged on by a multilateral group or an alliance? What is the nature of the values that we seek to advance? And how much does the application of these values depend on circumstance?
For the U.S., this will require thinking on two seemingly contradictory levels. The celebration of universal principles needs to be paired with recognition of the reality of other regions' histories, cultures and views of their security. Even as the lessons of challenging decades are examined, the affirmation of America's exceptional nature must be sustained. History offers no respite to countries that set aside their sense of identity in favor of a seemingly less arduous course. But nor does it assure success for the most elevated convictions in the absence of a comprehensive geopolitical strategy.

ISIS: What is the Real Deal Beheading Christians?


The latest example of extreme persecution is being conducted by the militant extremist Muslim group ISIS in Iraq.  This group is currently beheading and butchering Iraqi Christians to death (source). Back in 2011 Islamic Extremists in Somalia beheaded a 17 year old Christian boy vowing to rid Somalia of Christianity (source).  However, ISIS has taken it to another demonic level by its beheading and genocide of Christians. Why is ISIS so focused on beheading Christians? What spirit is driving them to cause such atrocities against Iraqi Christians?  Let's explore what drives Muslims with such hatred to behead both Jews and Christians.



Hatred and Beheading of  Jews 


Daniel Pearl Jewish-America Journalist Brutally Beheaded


In the year 627 A.D. the Prophet of Islam, Muhammad, mass-slaughtered Jews. He and his army took over the Jewish village of Bani Qurayzah.  They dug several trenches and forced  between 600 to 900 men to step inside where they were beheaded (source). Soon afterwards Muhammad enslaved the women and children of Bani Qurayzah (here).   

Does anybody remember the Jewish-American Journalist Daniel Pearl? Pearl was abducted in Pakistan by the Muslim terrorist group Al Qaeda on January 23, 2002. On February 21st of the same year, a video was released entitled "The Slaughter of the Spy-Journalist, The Jew Daniel Pearl!"  Pearl was beheaded by these Muslim terrorists on video(source/source). There is a history of Muslims beheading Jews.





Muslims' Good Deed to  Kill and Behead Jews and Christians!  

In certain aspects of Radical Islam  the killing of Americans, Christians, and Jews are seen as being a good deed to Allah.  Let's look a little closer at this mindset; a mindset that may very well be the motivating factor of the ISIS beheadings.

Former Al Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden stated the following on February 11, 2003:

"You should know that seeking to kill Americans and Jews everywhere in the world is one of the greatest duties[for Muslims], and the good deed most preferred by Allah, the Exalted(source)."

 Suicide bombers, for example, don't view human life as valuable.  However, they are willing to kill infidels, Christians and Jews because they believe it's a good deed to Allah (source).  

In the Yoel Natan book called "Moon-o-theism Volume 1," Page 85 states:

"An entry in popular collection of traditions called the Mishkat Al Masabih has Muhammad saying that Muslims would skip purgatory and gain immediate entrance into heaven if they only killed a Jew or Christians."

"When judgment day arrives, Allah will give every Muslim a Jew or Christian to kill so that the Muslim will not enter hell fire."

"Christian covert in Zanzibar told reporter: The Muslims are teaching people to hate Christians, that if they behead a Christian you will go to heaven(source)."


Could this be the mindset of ISIS?









Young Jeezy Upcoming Album Cover and Illuminati Symbolism



The hip-hop artist Young Jeezy has an upcoming album entitled, "Seen It All The Autobiography," The album cover has an Illuminati symbol of the All Seeing Eye on it.  Unfortunately,  it looks like Young Jeezy is following in the footsteps of his Luciferian mentor Jay Z, with the occult/masonry symbolism in his art.

The "All Seeing Eye"  is a masonic symbol.  It's the " All Seeing Eye of Horus" or "All Seeing Eye of Lucifer." When a human being opens up his third eye it allows him to make contact with the Lucifer-consciousness.  It is a symbol of Illumination (source). The symbol is also used in witchcraft as an amulet for wisdom, prosperity, and increasing clairvoyant powers (here).  It is also used for mind control against unassuming victims (Oops, I mean fans!) who view these symbols over and over again.


 Symbolism in Freemasonry


Here is what the famous 33 Degree Freemason, Albert Pike had to say about Masonry:

 "Masonry, like all religions, All the Mysteries, Hermeticism, and Alchemy, conceals its secrets to all except Adept and Sages or the Elect, and uses false explanations and misinterpretations of its symbols to mislead those who deserve only to be misled, to conceal the Truth, which it calls Light, from them, and to draw them away from it (source)."





Quote from famous Freemason philosopher Manly P. Hall: 

"Symbols may both reveal and conceal, for to the wise the subject of the symbol is obvious, while to the ignorant the figure remains inscrutable. Hence, he who seeks to unveil the secret doctrine of antiquity must search for that doctrine not upon the open pages of books which might fall into the hands of the unworthy but in the place where it was originally concealed.”

—Manly P. Hall, “The Secret Teachings of All Ages,” (page 20).


Albert Pike and Manly P. Hall State Lucifer the god of Freemasonry






Prime Example of Symbolism Impacting Our Youth:
5th Grader Says Part of The Illuminati Threatens to Kill Classmates







Young Jeezy End-Game for Symbolism on his CD 

Young Jeezy following Jay Z footsteps of Freemasonry Symbolism


Young Jeezy's album cover exposes his worshipers to the  accursed symbol.  They bring it into their homes and it opens their mind to the consciousness of Satan/Lucifer.  Unfortunately, it ultimately leads his fans into directly or indirectly worshiping Lucifer and the soon-coming world ruler, Anti-Christ. The spirit of Anti-Christ is at work in the music industry with its immoral lyrics, occult symbolism, and  music videos that indoctrinate those to accept an Anti-Christ spirit.

       

1 John 2:18King James Version (KJV)

18 Little children, it is the last time: and as ye have heard that antichrist shall come, even now are there many antichrists; whereby we know that it is the last time.
