Better than we found it

Wow, amazing the contrast, we are definitely split as a nation with different morals, values, and character….

This is an excellent example of Christs advice, that you will know a person by their fruits, this simple fruit (action) of picking up after ourselves, could it be any simpler than that?


Better than we found it

As someone who lives in D.C., I was happy to see people taking care to pick up after themselves at the conclusion of Saturday’s “Restoring Honor” rally.  Just like last fall’s 9/12 march, the grounds were left clean after the large crowds dispersed.  This is not always the case, however.  After the inauguration of President Barack Obama in January 2009, the National Mall looked like a landfill as people just left their newspapers and Starbucks cups for someone else to pick up.

Newsbusters has some great video comparing the last weekend’s rally with the Obama inauguration and asks an important question: Will the media notice the difference?

8/28/10 — Restoring Honor

January 20, 2009 — Inauguration of Barack Obama

On behalf of all D.C. residents, thanks for keeping it clean, folks!

Very interesting theory, God has said that those that come against Jerusalem will be cut to pieces, and that in the last days he will make Jerusalem a burdensome stone for which all will turn against.  Very interesting, something to be watchful of….

I love this, some may scoff, but I feel it is a sign from God.


God’s Majestic Geese Flyover at 8/28 Rally

At exactly 10am there was a triangle formation of geese that flew exactly down the center of the rally and stayed in formation until the end. The crowd there was cheering as they knew God has sent his own version of a military flyover to bless the days events.

Below are a couple of videos I found. Enjoy!

Devotional: The Courtroom of the World

Today’s devotional is from Max Lucado’s book Grace for the Moment

The Courtroom of the World

You will be my witnesses–in Jerusalem,

in all of Judea, in Samaria, and in every

part of the world.

Acts 1:8

We are witnesses.  And like witnesses in a court, we are called to testify, to tell what we have seen and heard.  And we are to speak truthfully.  Our task is not to whitewash nor bloat the truth.  Our task is to tell the truth.  Period.

There is, however, one difference between the witness in court and the witness for Christ.  The witness in court eventually steps down from the witness chair, but the witness for Christ never does.  Since the claims of Christ are always on trial, court is perpetually in session, and we remain under oath.

Just Like Jesus


Great message and reminder of what God has called us to do.  Witness to those around us through our words and our actions.  We must wake up those we care about and those who do not know Christ.  Time is short.

May Peace be with you!

This article caught my attention, as I looked through that third lens of scripture.

God said in the tribulation, common man will work an entire day for a days worth of food for one person, while the oil and wine will not be spoiled, inferring that the wealthy are going to be unaffected.

Are we starting to see signs of this?  Could it be related?

Revelation 6:6 – “And I heard what sounded like a voice among the four living creatures, saying, “A quart of wheat for a day’s wages, and three quarts of barley for a day’s wages, and do not damage the oil and the wine!”


Luxury booms while bargain retail suffers

Personal spending in the US is diverging into two distinct categories as strong growth at high-end stores contrasts with continuing difficulties for mass-market, low-price retailers.

Nearly a year after the US economy returned to growth, corporate earnings reports in recent months have provided consistent evidence of the differing fortunes. At high-end stores such as Neiman Marcus and Tiffany, shoppers are demonstrating confidence and spending with vigour. At the other end of the retail spectrum, consumers are cautious amid economic uncertainties, denting the earnings of groups such as Walmart.

In the second quarter of 2010, personal consumption expenditure – the commerce department’s main measure of consumer spending – advanced at an annualised rate of 2 per cent in the US, matching the fourth quarter 2009 figure and improving upon the 1.9 per cent gain recorded in the first quarter of this year. However, these modest increases are much weaker than the rebound in consumer consumption experienced after previous recessions.

For example, in the fourth quarter of 1982, even as the overall economy was only growing at a 0.2 per cent rate, consumption increased by 7.5 per cent. In the first quarter of 1992, consumer spending advanced by 7.1 per cent, and in the fourth quarter of 2001, by 6.4 per cent.

“Retail tends to be the leading edge of an economic recovery and this hasn’t been the case [this time round],” said Jack Kleinhenz, chief economist at the National Retail Federation. “People are finding ways to economise.”

This has hit mass-market retailers, which had initially managed to offset the impact of the recession on revenues through discounting.

More holes in the “sanctions with teeth”, to many more holes and Israel will probably feel then need to act.  So many countries have backed out of the proposed US sanctions, that one has to question how effective can they really be.

Also, take a look at who is a member of the ECO at the end of the article.  It looks pretty close to a list of the Ezekiel 38 war alliance….



ECO won’t abide by sanctions on Iran

TEHRAN – The Economic Cooperation Organization (ECO) will not follow sanctions against Iran, the organization’s secretary general said here on Sunday.

IRNA News Agency quoted Mohammad Yahya Maroofi as saying that, “the sanctions can’t affect Iran’s economy and the nation will continue its improvement alongside other ECO member states.”

“We have always tried not to let limitations and sanctions affect the economic development of the members,” he explained.

He also expressed hope that ECO’s member countries overcome the obstacles and expand the transportation and free trade inside the organization.

ECO is an intergovernmental organization involving seven Asian and three Eurasian nations. It provides a platform to discuss ways to improve development and promote trade and investment opportunities. The ECO is an ad hoc organization under the United Nations Charter.

The common objective is to establish a single market for goods and services, much like the European Union. ECO’s secretariat and cultural department are located in Tehran, its economic bureau is in Turkey and its scientific bureau is situated in Pakistan. The organization was founded by Turkey, Iran and Pakistan.

Afghanistan, Azerbaijan, Iran, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Pakistan, Tajikistan, Turkey, Turkmenistan and Uzbekistan are the current members of ECO.

This article has two significant prophecy impacts.

First, it was prophesied that oil could be found at specific areas of Israel.  There was a company founded, Zion Oil, specifically to explore based on the prophecy and they have hit it big.  Huge finds of oil and natural gas right where God had predicted.  Amazing!  This was the story that really got me going on bible prophecy and I have followed ever since.

Second, it is said in Ezekiel 38 scripture that God put hooks in Magog (Russia) and pulled them south to plunder Israel as a motive for the attempted invasion.  The question that has stood open is what could they be after.  Israel had nothing that its surrounding neighbors had, all oil rich nations.  But God had saved the best for last and hid the prophecy until the appropriate time for it to be discovered.

Now based on the projections, Russia will have some competition in the natural gas space, currently, Europe is highly dependent on Russia’s supplies, but now not only does Israel have enough to be self-sufficient for the next several decades (six), but also has enough to export.

Very interesting developments  indeed….


Israeli waters may hold large oil reserves


The Israeli partners in a U.S.-led consortium developing a natural gas field off the Mediterranean coast say that up to 4.2 billion barrels of oil may lie under the seafloor in Israeli waters.

If confirmed, the find would mark the first significant oil reserves for Israel.

The Delek Group said in a statement Sunday that there is a 17 percent chance of finding 3 billion barrels at a depth of 19,000 feet (5,800) and an 8 percent likelihood of finding 1.2 billion barrels about 4,600 feet (1,400 meters) deeper.

Analyst Amit Mor says energy firms usually drill if there is at least a 10 percent chance of success.

Delek is working with Texas-based

Libya is a key player in coming Psalm 83 war and has already been involved in alliances with Turkey, Iran, and Syria as well as Russia.

It is interested the double standard noted by the Italian politician.  You see this all the time with Islam and I am constantly amazed at how they get away with it.  I chalk it up to the deception of the end times and God’s will.  I feel it will play a big role in the end times prophecy fulfillment.

I have heard Berlusconi mentioned by several prophecy scholars as someone being watched regarding the Antichrist’s rise.

A couple of areas to keep watch on, through the third lens of scripture.


Gaddafi and Berlusconi to share Ramadan fast-breaking meal

Rome – Libyan leader Moammer Gaddafi was scheduled to share an evening Ramadan fast-breaking with Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlsuconi on Monday, during the second day of his visit to Rome.The Libyan leader, after arriving in the Italian capital on Sunday, triggered criticism when, in a meeting with hundreds of Italian young women, he reportedly expressed hope that Islam would become the main religion of Europe.

‘If I went to Tripoli to tell the Libyans to convert to Christianity, I bet I wouldn’t come back in one piece,’ said Rocco Buttiglione, a leading member of the opposition centrist UDC party said.

Gaddafi’s trip to Italy marks the second anniversary of the signing of a friendship accord in which Berlusconi’s conservative government agreed to pay Libya some 5 billion dollars in compensation for transgressions committed during three decades of Italian colonial rule over the North African nation.

Opposition leaders, human rights activists and Catholic Church officials also renewed their condemnation of a Rome-Tripoli pact which allows for the immediate deportation to Libya of would-be immigrants intercepted in international waters.

Critics say the so-called ‘push-backs’ violate the rights of asylum seekers including those fleeing from religious and political persecution.

‘Before (the accord), some 75 per cent of those who arrived in Italy via Libya would request asylum and following individual assessments, in 50 per cent of those cases the request would be granted,’ said Laura Boldrini a spokeswoman for the United Nations Refugee Agency (UNHCR).

Devotional: God Knows What’s Best

Today’s devotional comes from Max Lucado’s book Grace for the Moment

God Knows What’s Best

Trust the Lord with all your heart,

and don’t depend on your own understanding.

Proverbs 3:5

The problem with this world is that it doesn’t fit.  Oh, it will do for now, but it isn’t tailor-made.  We were made to live with God, but on earth we live by faith.  We were made to live forever, but on this earth we live but for a moment. . . .

We must trust God.  We must trust not only that he does what is best but that he knows what is ahead.  Ponder the words of Isaiah 57:1-2:  “The good men perish; the godly die before their time and no one seems to care or wonder why.  No one seems to realize that God is taking them away from the evil days ahead.  For the godly who die shall rest in peace” (TLB).

My, what a thought.  God is taking them away from the evil days ahead.  Could death be God’s grace?  Could the funeral wreath be God’s safety ring?  As horrible as the grave may be, could it be God’s protection from the future?

Trust in God, Jesus urges, and trust in me.

A Gentle Thunder


I had not remembered reading that verse in Isaiah before.  It is very comforting, I wish I would have discovered it earlier.  It also as all of God’s wisdom, matches Jesus’ promise to keep us from the wrath, his faithful brothers and sisters of His church.

May Peace be with you!

This story is very disturbing.  There are so many articles these days on how Islam is aggressively moving into areas of our government, society, and country in general.  It is almost like creeping sharia went into high gear.

One of my theories, that is shared by several others, is that Islam will have a huge role in the Antichrist’s tribulation government, economy, and religion.  (But more on that in a separate post.)

It does feel like Islam is making a full court press on America, as if someone said go, go.

Most Americans are probably oblivious.  We must wake them up.


Coming August 31: ‘Direct Access’ Stimulus Grants for the Muslim Brotherhood

Think of it as ACORN reborn, with a slice of Jihad on the side.

On August 31, this coming Tuesday, the Muslim Brotherhood-associated “Coordinating Council of Muslim Organizations” (CCMO) will bring 25-30 Muslim leaders of 20 national Muslim groups to attend a special workshop presented by the White House and U.S. Government agencies (Agriculture, Education, Homeland Security, Health and Human Services etc.) to provide the groups “funding, government assistance and resources.”  The workshop will apparently provide special access for these Muslim Brotherhood organizations: the organizers pledge to provide “direct access” and “cut through red tape.” Government and Muslim groups will hold an Iftar dinner (breaking the fast of Ramadan) after the workshop.

muslim brotherhood

The event was announced in an email newsletter sent August 27 by the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA), an unindicted co-conspirator in the Holy Land Foundation terrorism finance trial, long associated with the Muslim Brotherhood, the global Islamist network (great backgrounder here from Hudson Institute).   Here are three key paragraphs from the email (the entire article on the August 31 event from the ISNA email is pasted below this post as reference):

This year, a phenomenal next step has been made where government iftars become coupled with workshops to provide resources and benefit the Muslim community. The US Department of Agriculture (DOA) and the Coordinating Council of Muslim Organizations (CCMO) have paired the first of such events, scheduled for August 31, 2010.

…Leaders from Muslim organizations around the nation, particularly social service organizations, are invited to a workshop with representatives from the DOA, Faith Based and Neighborhood Partnerships, Health and Human Services, the White House, Department of Education, the Department of Homeland Security, and more. Twenty five to thirty Muslim leaders representing 20 Muslim organizations are expected to attend the workshop.

According to a representative of CCMO, this workshop is designed to clarify how Muslim nonprofits, mosques, Islamic centers, and social service organizations can strengthen their communities through more direct access to opportunities provided to social service agencies at the Federal level. “It will hopefully help cut through some of the red tape and shine light on the many opportunities for funding, government assistance, and resources that we just don’t know about at the local level,” said Elsanousi.

The Problem: Your Money, redistributed to the Muslim Brotherhood

This workshop constitutes an abdication of their professional responsibility by all government participants – and a taxpayer-funded government stimulus program for the attending Muslim Brotherhood-associated groups.  The Muslim Brotherhood, founded in 1928, is a global Islamist political movement dedicated to imposing Shariah law on all nations and institutions.  Their credo is “Allah is our objective. The Prophet is our leader. Qur’an is our law. Jihad is our way. Dying in the way of Allah is our highest hope.”

Why do we think some of these groups attending, possibly all, may be associated with the Muslim Brotherhood?

Because the sponsoring organization – the Coordinating Council of Muslim Organizations (CCMO), co-sponsoring with the Department of Agriculture – has a long history of associations with the Muslim Brotherhood.  They also signed a 2009 American Muslim Task Force statement threatening to “suspend” relations with the FBI, because the FBI was investigating possible links to homegrown terrorism in mosques and other Muslim organizations.

Not so evident on the current website, of course. This happens all the time with groups associated with the Muslim Brotherhood – the current CCMO website has a LOT less information than the older ones preserved at archive.org (aka “The Wayback Machine”). Here are the previous websites for the CCMO from 2004-2008. The pre-whitewashed CCMO websites are highly revealing. They expose the degree to which this Administration intends to direct taxpayer money (and “reduced red tape”) to Muslim Brotherhood-associated organizations in the U.S.

The Administration has not revealed which 20 groups and 25-30 leaders will attend the special workshop, but if they include the 41 CCMO members listed in 2007, the attendees could include the following groups , which I’ve linked to descriptions published by The Investigative Project (please support their work):

The Islamic Society of North America, an unindicted co-conspirator in the Holy Land Foundation Terrorism Finance trial, and the source of  Friday’s email promoting this CCMO/Department of Agriculture Event;

The Council on American Islamic Relations, shunned by the FBI, several of its leaders indicted or convicted for terrorism,  a possible violator of the Foreign Agents Registration Act, sued for fraud by Muslim, Hispanic and African-American families, named as an unindicted co-conspirator (CAIR fundraiser advertised at the CCMO site);

The International Institute of Islamic Thought , the “think tank” of the Muslim Brotherhood, described at that link by The Grand Jihad author and former prosecutor Andrew McCarthy.  One of the current and longest serving officers of CCMO is Imam Johari Abdul-Malik, founder of the educational arm of IIIT, the Fairfax Institute and the Director of Outreach Program for Dar-ul Hijrah “Terror” Mosque – more on him below.

The Muslim Public Affairs Committee , exposed in that linked 88-page  IPT report particularly for their defense of terrorists and terrorist financers. MPAC advertised here at the CCMO site for an event co-sponsored by Islamic Free Market Institute, the latter described in Paul Sperry’s pathbreaking book Infiltration)

The Dar al Hijrah Mosque (known as the “Terror Mosque” in Northern Virginia for its links to imprisoned, indicted or wanted terrorists as vividly described by Frank Gaffney), advertised here at the CCMO site.

The Muslim American Society “Freedom Foundation” run by three-time felon Mahdi Bray (MASFF Fundraiser advertised at the CCMO site). The Muslim American Society was originally founded as the U.S. branch of the Muslim Brotherhood. MAS leader  Mahdi Bray was elected on September 7, 2003 to the Executive Committee by over 40 CCMO member organizations.

I suggest that the Administration knows these groups are linked to the Muslim Brotherhood. They think that’s a good thing.

This isn’t incompetence; it’s intentional.

The CCMO Officers: Muslim Brotherhood Leaders

These are not just your garden-variety Muslim Brotherhood operatives. The CCMO officers include leading national and international figures in the Muslim Brotherhood, settled in the Washington DC suburbs to enjoy “direct access” to the Administration and Congress.  CCMO is a major U.S. node in the loosely coordinated Muslim Brotherhood network. Just the fellows to give your tax dollars as stimulus money!

CCMO appears to have started as an umbrella organization in the late 1980s, when so many Muslim Brotherhood organizations were expanding. According to this 2005 article at Washington, DC’s Muslim Link Newspaper, CCMO was 18 years old in that year, making the start date around 1987.

Who are these CCMO officers? We could write a book on each of them; their personal biographies are the tale of the Muslim Brotherhood’s ongoing “Project” to bring Shariah Law to America. Here are brief sketches on a few (Mahdi Bray, previously a CCMO officer and linked above, is not on the current CCMO board):

Dr. Iqbal Unus


Unus, like fellow CCMO officer Anwar Haddam below, holds the position currently of “Member at Large” on the CCMO boardDaniel Pipes notes that Unus unsuccessfully sued anti-terrorism researcher Rita Katz, and that his house was searched in the Green Quest investigation.  He’s a leader in an alphabet soup of groups named as unindicted co-conspirators in the Holy Land Foundation terrorism finance trial, or known to be associated with the Muslim Brotherhood.  Just review his published biography ( pdf ) from a 2007 “Islamophobia Conference” in Turkey (here’s the conference program in Google translation to English).  Several of the organizations he directs are listed in “An Explanatory Memorandum on the General Strategic Goal for the Brotherhood in North America,” the Holy Land Foundation terrorism finance trial’s most famous document (p. 32), which I noted in brackets below in Unus’ bio below:

Dr. Iqbal Unus is director of The Fairfax Institute (TFI), the instructional division of International Institute of Islamic Thought (IIIT) [listed on p. 32], located near Washington, D.C., U.S.A., where he has also served as director of human development and director of administration since 1989. Between 1995 and 1998, he taught and worked at the Graduate School of Islamic and Social Sciences as dean of students and registrar. Prior to joining IIIT, Dr. Unus served as secretary general of Islamic Society of North America (ISNA) [listed on p. 32] after having worked as director of administration and assistant secretary general since 1977. Between 1980 and 1982, Dr. Unus taught in the applied sciences and nuclear engineering departments at King Abdul Aziz University, Jeddah, Saudi Arabia.

Dr. Iqbal Unus has had a wide ranging volunteer service experience in the Muslim community in the United States for over 37 years. Some of the prominent offices he has held include president of the Muslim Students Association [listed on p. 32] of the United States and Canada (1975), several offices including president of the Association of Muslim Scientists and Engineers (AMSE) [listed on p. 32], member of Majls ash Shura of Islamic Society of North America (ISNA) [listed on p. 32], trustee of Amana Mutual Funds Trust, working committee member of International Council of Awqaf and Non-Governmental Organizations (ICANO), board member of Coordinating Council of Muslim Organizations in Washington Area (CCMO), and trustee of All Dulles Area Muslim Society (ADAMS).

In his lecture at the 2007 Islamophobia conference, Unus stated, “Western academic institutions must reevaluate their curriculum on all levels and purge material that may encourage or promote violence or hatred towards others through Islamophobia and xenophobia.” Why this is important: the Department of Education will attend the August 31 workshop to provide “direct access” to grants.  Americans have a right to know if the DoE will be talking to Unus on August 31 about funding projects to purge school curricula according to Unus’ standards.

Johari Abdul-Malik

Johari at CAIR Press Conference

Johari is a convert to Islam; he was formerly Winslow Seale of Brooklyn New York. Johari is currently CCMO Treasurer, and he has previously been Chairman of CCMO. He is the Director of Outreach at the Dar Al Hijrah Islamic Center near Washington DC. Dar al Hijrah is exposed in this report from the Investigative Project, in which the Department of Treasury’s Enforcement Communications System (TECS) records describe it as “a mosque operating as a front for Hamas operatives in U.S.,” “is associated with Islamic extremists,” “has been under numerous investigations for financing and proving aid and comfort to bad orgs and members,” has “been linked to numerous individuals linked to terrorism financing,” and “has also been associated with encouraging fraudulent marriages.”

Furthermore, his history of statements defending terrorist recruiter and trainer Al-Awlaki, promoting violence against Israel, and claiming that Islam will be the “first religion” in America are standard Muslim Brotherhood doctrine. His advocacy of terrorism against Israel in 2001 was particularly troublesome: he enthuses over specific acts of terrorism, with a passing nod to avoiding civilian casualties, almost as murderous as the violent guerrilla warfare in Algeria endorsed by CCMO officer Anwar Haddam (see below):

I am gonna teach you now. You can blow up bridges, but you cannot kill people who are innocent on their way to work. You can blow up power supplies… the water supply, you can do all forms of sabotage and let the world know that we are doing it like this because they have a respect for the lives of innocent people.

In the last two months, after highly critical media exposure on the radicalism of the Dar al Hijra Mosque, Johari has suddenly modified his behavior.  On June 8, 2010, Johari announced his resignation from a variety of openly- Muslim Brotherhood-connected organizations, remaining as a representative of those interests on interfaith boards. He resigned from:

1. Muslim Alliance in North America (MANA)

2. Muslim Council of America (MCA)

3. American Muslim Task-Force (Representative of MANA)


5. North American Imams Federation (Founding Board member)

6. Georgetown U – Chaplain Advisory board

7. University of MD-Chaplain Board

Also to his credit, on June 20, he published a post urging the removal from Islamic store Halaco.com (also his neighborhood store) of two sets of publications or recordings: 1) those by Dar al-Hijrah’s previous Imam, terrorist Al -Awlaki, and 2) the Protocols of the Elders of Zion. Christian Broadcasting Network had just exposed the Halalco.com bookstore for carrying radicalizing materials.

Whether Johari’s statements reveal a tactical retreat, in the face of public exposure of the Muslim Brotherhood associations of his prior directorships, or a genuine rejection of the Muslim Brotherhood ideology, remains to be determined, since he retained his leadership positions in CCMO and Dar al Hijrah. This administration reportedly has favored Dar al Hijrah previously with a government contract from the U.S. Census Bureau costing taxpayers $23,000/month since November 2008, and serious questions should be asked about how much “direct access” Dar al Hijrah will have at the August 31 workshop. 

Anwar N. Haddam


Haddam is listed at the CCMO website as Member-At-Large on the Board (a title held earlier by Muslim American Society Freedom Foundation head Mahdi Bray). Prominently displayed in the menu of the CCMO websites from 2004-2008 (but whitewashed from the current site) is this report – First Impressions: American Muslim Perspectives on the 9/11 Commission Report – sponsored by CCMO, published by IIIT (see above) and edited and authored by another coalition of Muslim Brotherhood-associated groups, the American Muslim Task Force. Of the several authors for the Report, one to note is Anwar N. Haddam.   According to his bio in the “First Impressions” book, Haddam is a long-time and currently listed board member of CCMO, “elected to the Algerian Parliament in December 1991… currently Advisor to the Islamic Front for Salvation (FIS-Algeria)… involved with the Algerian Islamic Movement.”
What the bio doesn’t mention is that the Clinton Administration kept Haddam detained for four years, based on classified evidence. He had already been banned from Algeria. In late 2000, in spite of efforts to prevent his release from detention by Attorney General Janet Reno and the Immigration and Naturalization Service (INS), he was granted asylum in the U.S. by the Board of Immigration Appeals. That decision, according to an assessment at Sheikh Qaradawi’s islamonline.net, was due to “political pressure from the Muslim community in Europe and the US, as well as from members of the US Congress.”

Earlier, in 1996, Daniel Pipes and Patrick Clawson had conducted an extraordinary in-depth interview with Haddam, published in the Middle East Quarterly, which exposes his absolute dedication to imposing an Islamist State in Algeria based on Shariah law, regardless of the costs in human life or liberties. Haddam himself wrote a revealing memoir of his leadership of the banned Islamic Front for Salvation. Algeria is an example of what happens when a somewhat secular Muslim-majority country is targeted by the Muslim Brotherhood – in this case, Haddam’s Islamic Front for Salvation – to force it to become an Islamic state. Decades of civil war, over 200,000 dead – and under this administration, a remorseless leader invited to the White House for “direct access” to grants using your money.

Here’s the abstract of a speech Haddam made in 2009, in which he describes himself (and the nature of his political party) in words relevant for the August 31 meeting: “The author of this paper – who has been in charge of the international relations of one of the first contemporary political parties of Islamic obedience…” Just to drive the point home here, that means he considers himself in the U.S. in official capacity (detained or not), representing a political party that is a leader in creating the Islamist state: “political parties of Islamic obedience.” And to connect the dots, that would be the same “Shariah-Compliant State” – also known as a state of “Islamic obedience” – that Ground Zero Mosque Imam Rauf is promoting for the U.S. and worldwide through his Shariah Index Project.

Congress should ask: will CCMO be given “financial assistance” to help further Haddam’s political goals for Algeria, working among the expatriate community here in the U.S. – or his goals for America?

Faizul Khan

Faizul Khan is Assistant Secretary-Treasurer for CCMO. He was the imam, recently replaced, at the Maryland Muslim Community Center Mosque attended for years by Fort Hood shooter Major Nidal Malik Hasan, until Hasan moved to Texas and shortly after killed thirteen people and wounded dozens. (He also reportedly attended services at CCMO-related  Dar al Hijra Mosque in northern Virginia.) Khan is also on the board of ISNA, an unindicted co-conspirator in the Holy Land Foundation terrorism finance trial.

In interviews after the shootings, Imam Feizul Khan referred to Hasan as “very devout.” This is, to say the least, an understatement. In fact, it’s not unlike another CCMO officer (and Dar al Hijrah spokesman) Johar minimizing the radicalism of al-Awlaki when the latter attended Dar al Hijrah. Somehow, terrorists Hasan and al-Awlaki were merely devout in these two CCMO-related mosques right before they went completely jihadist on America.

Stephen Schwartz exposed the radical associations of Khan’s mosque in November 2009 in this article in the NY Post. Schwartz found that Faizul’s Mosque website advertises for the Shariah Compliant “Amana Mutual Fund” which he states is still under investigation by the FBI. Faizul’s Maryland mosque also “hosted at least four talks by Enver Masud, the founder of The Wisdom Fund, the main Muslim ‘truther’ group in America.”

So, what is to be done between now and Tuesday, August 31?

Let’s review.

CCMO – the Coordinating Council of Muslim Organizations – is co-sponsoring the August 31 event with the Department of Agriculture. CCMO has deep and broad ties, possibly dating since 1987, to the Muslim Brotherhood.The issue: If the Obama administration is preferencing one religion over others for special workshops, “direct access” and cutting red tape for financial assistance, that’s not only wrong, it may be unconstitutional; combining the funding workshop with an Iftar dinner just makes it worse.

One solution: Cancel this meeting, and schedule one for all religious organizations. If government grants are to be given to religious groups (a policy some question, but set that aside here), then all grant applicants of all religions, including Muslims should be treated equally.  And if Muslim social service groups attend, they should be ones without ties to the Muslim Brotherhood or other Islamist groups dedicated to imposing Shariah law in the U.S.

An alternate solution:  Keep the event as currently planned – apparently arranged and dominated by CCMO – but open it up to the media (including network, cable, radio, Big Peace, bloggers, etc.) as well as organizations with expertise on the Muslim Brotherhood, like the Investigative Project, the Middle East Forum, NEFA Foundation, Hudson Institute, the Center for Security Policy and many others.  Let the sunshine in…

After all, surely this administration – and CCMO –  have nothing to hide?


Here’s the email in entirety:

Iftar with Our Government:

Serving up Resources for American Muslim Communities

In celebration of Ramadan, ISNA leadership and staff have been busy attending iftars hosted by the White House, State Department, Federal and State Agencies, Embassies, elected officials and interfaith partners.

“These iftars are a place to celebrate the diversity of America with our partners in the government and interfaith communities,” said ISNA Director for the Office of Interfaith and Community Alliances Dr. Sayyid Syeed. He adds, “They are also evidence that Muslims and our traditions are more regularly incorporated into the mosaic of cultures and traditions that form the foundation of American life.”

Although these iftars are important symbols of the transition of Muslims into mainstream American culture, according to ISNA Director of Community Outreach Mohamed Elsanousi, they are also a very important place for brainstorming and the development of practical ideas to help the Muslim community.

“Muslim community members have been asking for more from these iftars for years now. They have contacted ISNA and requested that we work with our partners in government to make the dinners more useful to our communities at the local levels,” said ISNA Director of Community Outreach Mohamed Elsanousi.This year, a phenomenal next step has been made where government iftars become coupled with workshops to provide resources and benefit the Muslim community. The US Department of Agriculture (DOA) and the Coordinating Council of Muslim Organizations (CCMO) have paired the first of such events, scheduled for August 31, 2010.

“ISNA is happy to join other nation-wide Muslim organizations and participate in this workshop. We absolutely expect that there will be more of these paired iftars and workshops in future Ramadans,” said Elsanousi.

The Workshop: So what exactly is this workshop, you may ask. Leaders from Muslim organizations around the nation, particularly social service organizations, are invited to a workshop with representatives from the DOA, Faith Based and Neighborhood Partnerships, Health and Human Services, the White House, Department of Education, the Department of Homeland Security, and more. Twenty five to thirty Muslim leaders representing 20 Muslim organizations are expected to attend the workshop.

According to a representative of CCMO, this workshop is designed to clarify how Muslim nonprofits, mosques, Islamic centers, and social service organizations can strengthen their communities through more direct access to opportunities provided to social service agencies at the Federal level. “It will hopefully help cut through some of the red tape and shine light on the many opportunities for funding, government assistance, and resources that we just don’t know about at the local level,” said Elsanousi.

The Iftar: Following the workshop, the DOA will host an Iftar to acknowledge and thank Muslim employees for their dedication and to the DOA. Keynote speakers will discuss the issues of increasing access to healthy foods for all communities and the powerful communal and sacred aspects of food. In addition to the DOA employees and representatives of various Muslim organizations, the DOA also invited Muslim employees from various other government agencies. The Deputy Secretary of the Department of Agriculture is also scheduled to attend.

This has been an area of little to no transparency for quite some time.  There is a lot of concern by those trying to keep track of what is being done with our gold supply, that massive deception has been taking place over the last few decades….

Something to watch.


Ron Paul questions whether there’s gold at Fort Knox, NY Fed

Rep. Ron Paul (R-Texas) said he plans to introduce legislation next year to force an audit of U.S. holdings of gold.

Paul, a longtime critic of the Federal Reserve and U.S. monetary policy, said he believes it’s “a possibility” that there might not actually be any gold in the vaults of Fort Knox or the New York Federal Reserve bank.

The libertarian lawmaker told Kitco News, a website tracking news about precious metals, that an audit was necessary to determine how much the U.S. maintains in gold reserves in case the government were to use gold to back the dollar.

“If there was no question about the gold being there, you think they would be anxious to prove gold is there,” he said.

“Our Federal Reserve admits to nothing, and they should prove all the gold is there. There is a reason to be suspicious and even if you are not suspicious why wouldn’t you have an audit?

“I think it is a possibility,” Paul said when asked if there was truth to rumors that there was actually no gold at Ft. Knox or the New York Fed.
Paul had been one of the Republicans to spearhead a broader audit of the Fed as part of the Wall Street reform bill passed through Congress this year. The provision, which was weakened somewhat in the final version, found Paul joining with a number of Democrats to require the Fed to open its books and outline its assets and liabilities.

The gold reserves, which Paul’s new bill would audit, are generally seen as a guarantee on a nation’s currency, but the U.S. moved the dollar away from being tied to the price of gold in 1972.

Paul stopped short of calling for the reinstitution of the gold standard and instead called for the government to allow the use of hard currency — gold and silver tender — alongside the use of the dollar.

“If people get tired of using the paper standard they can deal in gold or silver,” he said.

Terry from Rapture Ready had a good “Nearing Midnight” article this week on how current events are shaping up for the economic controls the Antichrist will use to control and rule the world during the tribulation.  Very good article….


Economy Nucleus of Tribulation

One prophetic element stands out in considering the seven-year Tribulation era, with regard to the Antichrist regime. That is the economic platform prophesied to be at the heart of the beast system.

With so many signals in view that point to the brewing Tribulation tempest, we should expect–if we are reading the end-times signals correctly—that this heart of the Beast should be well along in its construction. We have covered all of the indicators found within current issues and events that we believe are signals like those given by Jesus and the prophets. National and world economies have been dealt with in our efforts to make prophetic sense of the dynamic rearrangements taking place in recent years, months, weeks, and days.

America’s staggering weight of debt and swift economic decline is front and center in pointing to the fact, we believe, that this is the generation that stands at the end of one dispensation–the Church Age–and upon the precipice of the next–the Tribulation. Each hour seems to bring additional confirmation that the Tribulation storm is about to break upon an uncomprehending world. Such confirmation is present in abundance in the realm of geopolitics and global economics.

Since Bible prophecy clearly foretells that the Antichrist government, thus the economic engine that will power that absolute dictatorship, will emerge from Europe, we need keep our prophetic antennae pointed in that direction–i.e., we must be especially alert to news involving movement within Europe to cause significant changes to global economic structure.

The following excerpt from the Wall Street Journal registers an interesting blip on my own end-times radar screen.

PARIS —French President Nicolas Sarkozy called on the world’s twenty largest economies to work together to reform global monetary order.

“We must define a new framework for discussing currency movements,” Mr. Sarkozy said, adding that it is “nonsense” to talk about exchange rates without including China, which has accumulated huge foreign exchange reserves.

He said stabilizing erratic foreign exchange and commodities markets will feature high on France’s agenda when it heads the Group of 20 [in] November. He added there is a need to reduce the U.S. dollar’s dominance as the reserve currency of choice.” (Nathalie Boschat and David Pearson, “Sarkozy Outlines G-20 Priorities,” Wall Street Journal, 8/26/10)

Prophecy scholars and others have long pondered why the U.S. , the most powerful nation in history, isn’t mentioned by name–or even by significant reference—in God’s Word. We continue to flounder in attempts at finding an exact answer for that question. However, with the recent astonishing changes nationally and abroad, the answer seems to be in the process of forming.

Monetary manipulation is at the root of the change taking place. The American dollar must be removed as the currency standard so that a global currency not underwritten by any national monetary unit can be established. This is precisely the Beast economic order I’m convinced Bible prophecy describes as outlined in the following:

And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name. Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six. (Rev. 13:16-18)

This speaks to me of a computer system –a hybrid Internet whereby all citizens of the global economic order will be absolutely controlled at every level of life. Probably, it will consist at its heart of electronic funds transfer (EFT)–a system of Special Drawing Rights (SDR). Anyone refusing to toe the mark of the Antichrist’s regime will face having his or her SDR account blocked or removed completely from the system. Fear of starvation is a mighty motivator to comply.

Pressures are mounting for a completely changed global economic order. Even the king of the kings of the East, China, is at the center of the dynamics driving the changes.

Most economists who are honest will admit that the current building economic heap of debt cannot continue to accumulate. They are amazed, in fact, that everything hasn’t already collapsed into total, worldwide depression. I again offer my belief that it will be the Rapture that causes the ultimate implosion and collapse.

The great world leader called in Revelation “the Beast” will be there to implement a satanically-inspired economic scheme that will at first offer hope –that will for a time “cause craft to prosper” (Dan. 8:25). But Antichrist’s plan will achieve what it will be designed to do: enslave most of the world in electronic bondage.

Jesus offers the opposite of what the counterfeit, Antichrist, will produce. Jesus promises: “If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed” (John 8:36). We must at every opportunity lift up the Holy name of Jesus before the eyes of a world headed into the terrors of the Tribulation.

The Alliances of the Psalm 83 war are forming stronger and more visible bonds.

God’s prophecy is in the process of being fulfilled in front of our eyes.

We must be watchful through our third lens of scripture.


‘Hizbullah and Syrian army to join forces against Israel’

Lebanese guerilla group Hizbullah and the Syrian military have reportedly agreed to cooperate on any future conflicts with Israel, according to Kuwaiti newspaper a-Rai.

Sources told the newspaper that Hizbullah and Syria now have joint headquarters from which they can coordinate any joint operations, to be jointly commanded by officers from the two groups.

The operations would include air, land and sea and plans reportedly include strategies for attacks on Israel as well as defense in the event of an Israeli attack.

Evil has infiltrated our churches with their progressive agenda, social justice, and collective salvation.

We must be watchful, and make sure we are founded in the Word of God, the Bible!  So we are not deceived.

Christ warned us about the false prophets and that many would be misled.


Wallis-Soros ties surfacing

The leader of the “progressive Christian” Sojourners movement has accepted funding from leftist atheist billionaire George Soros.

Mark Tooley, president of The Institute on Religion & Democracy (IRD), tells OneNewsNow the information about Jim Wallis receiving the funds surfaced recently in a report from WORLD Magazine.

“This was significant in that Jim Wallis in recent years has adamantly insisted he did not belong to either side of the political spectrum, but essentially was a centrist who was transcending left and right and was simply a purely Christian activist,” Tooley notes. But in fact, he continues, with the Wallis-Soros connection now confirmed, “Wallis…stands exposed as what he always was: a man of the political left.”

Wallis — a spiritual advisor to President Obama — has openly stated in the past that Sojourners did not receive funding from atheists, but he later issued a statement confirming there had been at least three Soros grants from Soros’ Open Society Institute totaling about $325,000. One of those grants, according to Christianity Today, totaled $100,000 and was earmarked for “immigration reform” — prompting Wallis to tell the publication: “I have no apologies for taking a donation on immigration reform from Open Society. We’d do it again.”

Tooley feels it is disingenuous for a Christian group to accept money from non-believers, and he thinks Wallis and Soros are in sync on several different levels.

“George Soros, besides being politically on the left, obviously is very pro-abortion rights and pro-euthanasia and would have very strong views on a whole range of topics involving sanctity of life and definition of marriage and others that the vast majority of orthodox Christians would disagree with,” Tooley suggests.

But the IRD president points out that at the same time, Wallis is trying to make his appeal primarily to evangelical Christians — resulting in what Tooley describes as a clear “dichotomy.”

A third quake has hit Iran in a little over a month.

Are you seeing the birth pains heating up?

We need to wake up all those we care about to turn to God and be saved before it is too late.


Danger: Third Quake in Six Weeks in Nuclear Iran

A third earthquake in less than six weeks has hit Iran, killing at least three people and injuring 21. The 5.9-magnitude quake hit the city of Damghan in northern Iran, 175 miles east of Tehran, late Friday night. Fifteen villages were reportedly damaged.

Earthquake-prone Iran suffered a 5.7-quake on July 30. Some 300 people in northeastern Iran were injured at the time. Ten days earlier, a 5.8-earthquake hit the south of the country, killing at least one and injuring 32. Hundreds of homes were damaged in both.

Experts have warned that Iran’s propensity for earthquakes, its non-strict building codes, and the fact that several of its nuclear facilities are situated near densely-populated urban areas could have catastrophic consequences for Iran, its neighbors, and world oil prices. Experts estimate that an average of one serious tremor hits the country every day.

Seven years ago, 26,000 people were killed by a 6.6-magnitude quake in the historic city of Bam in southeastern Iran.

Huffington Post Offers $100,000 for Sex Tapes, Phone Records to Destroy Glenn Beck
Posted on Monday, August 30, 2010 8:24:16 AM by kristinn

Edited on Monday, August 30, 2010 1:25:08 PM by Jim Robinson. [history]

In the wake of Glenn Beck’s hugely successful Restoring Honor rally held in Washington, D.C. this weekend, the Huffington Post has published an offer of $100,000 to anyone with evidence that would destroy Beck’s reputation and take him off the political/cultural battlefield.An essay written by Beau Friedlander, the last editor-in-chief of Air America before it shut down this year, was posted in the Politics section of the Huffington Post today with the title, $100,000 For Glenn Beck’s Sex Tape.Friedlander says he will not use his own money for the hit, but that he will “broker” the deal.It is time to pop the tea baggers’ favorite balloon (so what if it will be replaced by another?), and with that in mind I hereby offer to negotiate a $100,000 payday to the person who will come forward with a sex tape or phone records or anything else that succeeds in removing Glenn Beck from the public eye forever. I am not offering the cash myself, but I will broker the deal and/or raise the money for what you bring to the table. (And it better be good.) If you have the goods, or if you want to contribute to a slush fund to buy more takedowns (probably not tax deductible), please contact me at: glennbecksextape@gmail.com.Friedlander couches his offer in the context of Andrew Breitbart’s offer of $100,000 for the Journolist listserve messages, but this is more in line with pornographer Larry Flynt’s blackmail campaign against Congressmen during Bill Clinton’s impeachment, which followed a threat from Clinton conveyed by George Stephanopoulos to expose their sex lives.Likewise, the Huffington Post has ties to the Obama White House, raising the question of whether the White House is behind this targeting of Beck.

The deception is not just in the western media, there are political groups working in Israel to convince Israeli’s that PA wants peace, even though all actions point to the opposite.


Left-Wing Campaign: PA Wants Peace

A new left-wing public relations campaign seeks to persuade the Israeli public that the Palestinian Authority truly wants peace – despite all indications to the contrary.

The aggressive initiative includes quotes from leading PA spokesmen, billboards, and widespread media coverage. The objective is to imbue the Israeli public with the sense that the ball is in its court, and that the PA leadership is truly ready to make peace.

Rejection of Offers, Culture of Hate
This, despite the PA’s refusal in recent years to accept generous proposals proffered by ex-Prime Ministers Barak and Olmert that included some 98% of Judea and Samaria.

The campaign also does not mention what some have called the “Palestinian Culture of Hate,” which includes the naming of educational camps, sports tournaments, streets and more in memory of terrorists who have murdered dozens of Israelis.

Poll of PA Opinions
Furthermore, a survey carried out by a PA organization this month finds that the Arab public is, in fact, not quite ready for peace. 86.3% of those polled – 3,001 Arab residents in the Palestinian Authority – see violence for the purpose of achieving a Palestinian state as anywhere between “essential” and “tolerable.”

Specifically, over 55% view violence as either essential or desirable, nearly 31% see it as either acceptable or tolerable, and only 13.7% say it is unacceptable.

In addition, 75% of those polled say the demilitarization of a future PA state is “unacceptable,” and over 84% say it is “essential” that all of Jerusalem, including the areas that have been Israel’s capital since 1948, must be part of a future PA state.

The survey was conducted this month by “Arab World for Research & Development,” based in Ramallah and Gaza.

PA Doublespeak
Yet another phenomenon that the new initiative will have to overcome if it wants to persuade Israelis that the PA wants peace is the duplicity of the PA leaders. Commentator Daniel Pipes writes that Salam Fayyad, known as the PA’s prime minister, announced in English in Aspen, Colorado last year that Jews are welcome to live in a future state of Palestine where they “will enjoy [full] rights and certainly [not less] than Israeli Arabs enjoy now in the State of Israel.”

However, a few days earlier, chief PA negotiator Saeb Erekat said just the opposite in Arabic: “Nobody should agree to Israeli settlers remaining in the Palestinian [state]… Some say that we will [be willing to] grant the settlers citizenship. We reject [this idea] out of hand.”

More positioning in preparation for the coming middle east wars.

The Psalm 83 alliances are forming up as God has prophesied.


Syrian president urges Lebanon to support Hizbullah

Lebanese Prime Minister Sa’ad Hariri met with Syrian President Bashar Assad in Damascus early on Monday, to discuss Syrian-Lebanese ties and to consolidate “coordination between the two countries in all fields,” Syria’s state-run news agency SANA reported Monday.

Hariri has visited Damascus repeatedly this year in a sign of Syria’s renewed influence over Lebanon in the years since Damascus withdrew its military in 2005, ending a nearly three-decade hold on Lebanon.

According to the report, Assad called for “calm and dialogue to solve impending problems.” He also reiterated his support for the “resistance against foreign threats,” and urged Hariri to support Hizbullah.

Syria backs the Lebanese group which has a large role in Lebanon’s fragile national unity government.

On Sunday, Ash-Sharq al-Awsat newspaper reported that the Lebanese Armed Forces will continue receiving military equipment from France despite pressure from Israel and the US to halt such assistance.

Following violent border clashes between IDF and LAF forces earlier this month which left an Israeli soldier and three Lebanese dead, US Representative, Ileana Ros-Lehtinen, the ranking Republican on the House Foreign Affairs Committee, made a statement saying that the sale of weapons to Lebanon at this time would be “irresponsible” and could “jeopardize security and stability in the region.”

Last week, street battles in Beirut between Hizbullah and a small Sunni group killed three people, exacerbating sectarian tensions in Lebanon.

This is so maddening.  I can’t believe this is happening in America and there is not more of an outrage.

We truly are dumbed down as a society, with Paris Hilton and Linsey Lohan.

At two of the three 9/11 attack sites, there are attempts to build mosques or muslim holy symbols.

This is not a coincidence.

How can this really be covered up and how are Americans in our government agencies be helping both efforts?


The Flight 93 Memorial mosque (must see videos)

We’ve posted many of the blogbursts on the Flight 93 memorial since our inception. With the heightened attention on the proposed mosque at Ground Zero, it’s time equal scrutiny, exposure, and awareness be brought to the giant outdoor mosque being built in Shanksville, Pennsylvania.

Videos exposing the travesty taking place, almost silently, at the memorial site are below. It’s time for Americans to get educated, speak up, contact your elected officials, and stand up for America and those murdered by Muslims in the name of Islam!

Also read the letter Tom Burnett, Sr. wrote to the American people and was published at Atlas Shrugs, that included this:

We too need your help; we need to stop the National Park Service building another mosque in Shanksville. PA.

I served on the 2005 2nd jury that was commissioned to select a design honoring the passengers and crew on Flight 93. The public submitted over 1100 designs. The first jury went through those 1100 designs and selected 5 designs that were presented to the 2nd jury.

When I saw Crescent of Embrace, I immediately saw the Islamic symbols. I spoke out against the design and explained my reasons to the other members of the jury. The vote was taken, 9 for the Crescent of Embrace and 6 against that design. That vote was not unanimous.

There were 4 excellent designs left; there was absolutely no reason to select a design that even suggested Islamic symbols.

I knew that the public would agree with me when they saw the Crescent of Embrace design. They did, but our government would not listen or investigate our claims. All of our letters ended up in the same hands, the National Park Service. We can’t give up; we must stop this mosque being built in Shanksville, as well as the one in New York.

Other mosque features:

Mosque design is based on a dozen typical mosque features, every one of which is realized in the Crescent/Circle design, all on the same epic scale as the half mile wide crescent-mihrab. Note, for instance, that the 93 foot tall minaret-like Tower of Voices is topped with another Islamic-shaped crescent, akin to the crescent-topped minarets seen in many Islamic countries:

An Islamic shaped crescent, soaring in the sky above the symbolic lives of the 40 heroes, which literally dangle down below. In Islam, there is only heaven and hell. Symbolic damnation?

The Flight 93 mosque needs to be stopped, along with the Islamic victory mosque at ground zero in Manhattan. May the fight against these two desecrations strengthen each other.

Loving father of Flight 93 hero Tom Burnett Junior

Contact information for the Flight 93 Memorial Project here.

If you would like to help stop the crescent mosque, please email Alec Rawls (alec@rawls.org) who is helping to coordinate opposition.

There is also an online petition that people can sign.

Second media outlet confirming the deception that has been spread that the Iraq war is the primary reason for the deficit.  The graph below sure is scary.  Look how fast that jumped in 2009,  Wow, we are so over extended….


CBO: Eight Years of Iraq War Cost Less Than Stimulus Act

As President Obama prepares to tie a bow on U.S. combat operations in Iraq, Congressional Budget Office numbers show that the total cost of the eight-year war was less than the stimulus bill passed by the Democratic-led Congress in 2009.

According to CBO numbers in its Budget and Economic Outlook published this month, the cost of Operation Iraqi Freedom was $709 billion for military and related activities, including training of Iraqi forces and diplomatic operations.

The projected cost of the stimulus, which passed in February 2009, and is expected to have a shelf life of two years, was $862 billion.

The U.S. deficit for fiscal year 2010 is expected to be $1.3 trillion, according to CBO. That compares to a 2007 deficit of $160.7 billion and a 2008 deficit of $458.6 billion, according to data provided by the U.S. Office of Management and Budget.

In 2007 and 2008, the deficit as a percentage of gross domestic product was 1.2 percent and 3.2 percent, respectively.

More good stories on the Restoring Honor event, and more deception on what the event entailed.

I don’t know how many articles I read that stated it was a majority white audience.

Does the media understand that we are a majority white country?

So if we were evenly represented across the US it would be a white majority.

I am still surprised, not sure why, I keep expecting them to wake up.


Glenn Beck crowd: Not so white as advertised

Many creeds, colors in attendance refute charges of racism against rally

WASHINGTON – Hundreds of thousands of Americans – of many creeds and colors – made what ended up being a pilgrimage of sorts to the Lincoln Memorial in Washington, D.C., for Glenn Beck’s Restoring Honor rally.

Catholics, other Christians and Jews spoke to WND on site, many celebrating the themes of faith and reliance on God proclaimed from the platform.

As WND reported, Beck proclaimed the purpose of the rally, saying, “It has nothing to do with politics; it has everything to do with God.”

Beck, the Fox News TV host and a professed Mormon, urged his fellow Americans to live according to the Christian virtues of faith, hope and charity. He asked everyone to enter into 40 days of deep prayer, an obvious plea to imitate Jesus Christ’s 40 days of prayer and fasting in the wilderness.

Beck also preached the Christian philosophy that the common good starts with individuals, and therefore, he said, Americans need to begin by examining their souls.

Paul and Jeff Strange, father and son, came from Bloomington, Ill., with their friend Tom Morgan. Just prior to the formal presentations, Jeff Strange spoke presciently:

“I came here to try and improve myself as an individual, because I think we need to restore our character in this country,” he said. “We need to restore the character of our leaders, and we need to start electing virtuous leaders.

“We’re in big trouble, and it’s time to do something about it,” said Strange. “We came out here to be with thousands of other people to take a stand, to change ourselves and our country.”

Different faiths, different colors

Day Gardner (left) and Alveda King at Restoring Honor rally

The crowd itself included veterans, parents, disabled Americans, people of all ages and – contrary to some criticism leveled against the rally – attendees of many races and ethnicities.

Day Gardner, president of the National Black Pro-Life Union based in Washington, D.C., for example, stood on the platform with Alveda King as she recalled her uncle Martin Luther King Jr.’s historic “I Have a Dream” speech.

Before the multitudes assembled Alveda King proclaimed, “If Uncle Martin could be here today … he would surely remind us that as brothers and sisters, united by one blood in one single race, the human race, we are called to honor God and to love each other.”

Praising the entire rally, Gardner exclaimed, “It was phenomenal!

“It felt great to be up there with all these wonderful leaders, the black pro-life leaders from all over the country,” Gardner said. “I was extremely proud of my sister in Christ and my dear friend, Dr. Alveda King. … Seeing her walk out where her uncle and her father were 47 years ago – my eyes welled up, and I had a lump in my throat, because we have come a really long way.”

It is amazing the lengths different media outlets will go through to deceive their audiences on what really took place this weekend.

I mean, really, 87,000.  It will be very telling when the official estimates come out, where each stood.

The more I hear about this event, the more God inspired and touched I believe it was.

Not one arrest during the entire event.

The mall was left cleaner than before the event started.

And all of the good will stories are pouring in.  Amazing, praise God!


Glenn Beck rally sparks debate over crowd size

Glenn Beck rally draws huge crowd

Glenn Beck kicked off Monday’s radio show by thanking the many attendees at Saturday’s “Restoring Honor” rally in front of the Lincoln Memorial — at least 500,000 by his count. Beck said he’s “still waiting on the real number” and plans to look closely during his 5 p.m. Fox News show at photos of the large crowd assembled on the National Mall.

The rally — which took place on the 47th anniversary of Martin Luther King’s famous “I Have a Dream” speech at the memorial — drew a good deal of controversy, with civil rights leaders holding a countermarch. But the event largely kept free of overt political references, as Beck (a longtime scourge of the Obama White House) had pledged it would. It stressed religious themes, together with celebrations of noncontroversial virtues such as charity and national service.

Even though Beck is still tabulating a crowd estimate, it can be expected to be significantly higher than the number CBS News reported over the weekend: 87,000.

[Video: Thousands come to D.C. for Beck rally]

CBS commissioned an estimate from AirPhotosLive, a company that provides crowd sizes based on aerial photos. CBS noted that there’s a margin of error of plus or minus 9,000. So, by this estimate, there were as few as 78,000 attendees or as many as 96,000.

Unlike CBS, most news organizations balked at getting that specific (or hiring professionals to make a head count). Some media outlets played it safe with “tens of thousands,” a count that’s indisputable. Others went with “hundreds of thousands.” Perhaps the only thing the media agreed on — including this reporter on hand — is that a very large number of people assembled to hear Beck speak.

Second eruption in same number of days, things are heating up, as birth pains intensify.  God is trying to wake us up, to turn back to him.


Indonesian Volcano Erupts Again, Spews Hot Ash

TANAH KARO, Indonesia –  An Indonesian volcano dormant for four centuries erupted for the second straight day Monday, shooting clouds of hot ash more than a mile into the air and forcing 30,000 people to flee.

Some domestic airplanes had to be diverted because of poor visibility.

Many villagers living along the slopes of Mount Sinabung in North Sumatra province wore masks as they packed their belongings and headed to emergency shelters, mosques and churches, said Andi Arief, a presidential adviser on disasters.

Their abandoned homes and crops were blanketed in gray soot and the air was thick with the smell of sulfur.

While two people died — a 64-year-old woman from respiratory problems and a 52-year-old man from a heart attack — it was too early to say if the volcano was to blame, said Priyadi Kardono of the National Disaster Management Agency.

Sinabung last erupted in 1600, so observers don’t know its eruption pattern and admitted over the weekend they had not monitored it closely before it started rumbling days ago in the lead-up to Sunday’s first, less-powerful blast.

Hours later, the alert was raised to the highest level.

Frank has a good series of articles surrounding technology advancements that is leading us toward the state that will allow the Antichrist to control our economic system.


Prophecy Sign: Revelation 13:16-17 in these verse Jesus shows us the Antichrist will control the world’s economic system. How? By controlling what anyone will be able to buy or sell. Those who do not follow the Antichrist’s new system will be hunted down and as Jesus said in Rev. 20:4 they will be beheaded because they did not bow down to the Antichrist and take his mark.  There are technologies being set in place that will be able to keep tract of everyone and as you will have noticed from my posts that most of the new technologies focus on the face or the hand.  These new technologies are on the path to fulfilling what Jesus said about the tribulation.  Today’s news has a great example of how people are going to be monitored.  Think it can’t happen to you?

Iris Scanners Create the Most Secure City in the World. Welcome, Big Brother

We’ve all seen and obsessively referenced Minority Report, Steven Spielberg’s adaptation of Philip K. Dick’s dystopian future, where the public is tracked everywhere they go, from shopping malls to work to mass transit to the privacy of their own homes. The technology is here. I’ve seen it myself. It’s seen me, too, and scanned my irises.

Biometrics R&D firm Global Rainmakers Inc. (GRI) announced today that it is rolling out its iris scanning technology to create what it calls “the most secure city in the world.” In a partnership with Leon — one of the largest cities in Mexico, with a population of more than a million — GRI will fill the city with eye-scanners. That will help law enforcement revolutionize the way we live — not to mention marketers.

“In the future, whether it’s entering your home, opening your car, entering your workspace, getting a pharmacy prescription refilled, or having your medical records pulled up, everything will come off that unique key that is your iris,” says Jeff Carter, CDO of Global Rainmakers. Before coming to GRI, Carter headed a think tank partnership between Bank of America, Harvard, and MIT. “Every person, place, and thing on this planet will be connected [to the iris system] within the next 10 years,” he says.

Leon is the first step. To implement the system, the city is creating a database of irises. Criminals will automatically be enrolled, their irises scanned once convicted. Law-abiding citizens will have the option to opt-in.

“So will we live the future under iris scanners and constant Big Brother monitoring? According to Carter, eye scanners will soon be so cost-effective–between $50-$100 each–that in the not-too-distant future we’ll have “billions and billions of sensors” across the globe. Goodbye 2010. Hello 1984.”


This type of ID system will be making its way around the world and this new tech. ID system is even showing up in your gyms. Check this out if you don’t believe me.

24 Hour Fitness rolls out finger scanners at gyms

SAN RAMON, Calif. — Members of the 24 Hour Fitness chain no longer need to worry about forgetting their membership cards and IDs when they go to the gym: All they need to bring are their fingers.

The San Ramon-based company is now using fingerprint scanners at its 60 San Francisco Bay area locations to verify members’ identities. It also has started offering so-called “Cardless Check-In” this month at some gyms in other states.

To enter the gym, 24 Hour Fitness members need to punch in a 10-digit code and have an index finger scanned by a device that compares the fingerprint to one on file.

Company officials say the voluntary program allows members to show up without ID, prevents nonmembers from sneaking in, and saves the cost of making and mailing club cards.

“We’re always looking for ways to make it easier for people to use our clubs,” said Dan Benning, president of the company’s Northern Division.

The scanners underscore the growing use of biometric technology, which uses unique physical features such as hands, eyes and faces to identify people.

Urine-powered fuel cells to offer pee power to people

Washington, Aug 27 (ANI): This could literally be called pee power to the people-researchers have figured out a way to make the world’s first urine-powered fuel cells.

Chemistry postdocs Shanwen Tao and Rong Lan at Heriot-Watt University’s School of Engineering and Physical Sciences in Edinburgh are turning pee into electricity and clean water with a prototype fuel cell system. I had heard about pee-power for robots, but not pee-power for everyone.

While fuel cells usually rely on flammable hydrogen gas or toxic methanol to generate electricity, Tao and Lan’s cheaper prototype relies instead on urea, an organic chemical compound produced as waste when the body metabolizes protein.

Urea, also called “carbamide,” has several advantages as a potential fuel source-it’s abundant, non-toxic, relatively straightforward to transport and rich in nitrogen, reports Discovery News.

According to the university, Tao thought about incorporating urea because he had seen it used as a fertilizer while growing up in eastern China.

The Carbamide Power System prototype can break urea or urine from humans or animals down into water, nitrogen and CO2, and also produce electricity at the same time.

More preparation by Israel’s enemy’s for the coming Psalm 83 and Ezekiel 38 wars….


Egypt intercepts shipment of missiles

Authorities uncover large weapons cache hidden in Sinai.

Egyptian authorities intercepted a shipment of at least 190 anti-aircraft missiles in Sinai probably destined for Gaza on Saturday, Palestinian news Agency Ma’an reported.

According to the report, the Egyptian police raided several storage areas in the area and discovered the secret cache hidden in a remote region in the center of the peninsula.

In addition to the anti-aircraft missiles, rockets and other ammunition were seized, as well as a large supply of illegal drugs.

Reports also stated that authorities raided several locations in Rafah, where they found more stores of explosives and weapons.

Earlier on Saturday Kuwaiti newspaper Alrai reported that Syria’s military is on high alert for an Israeli attack on Hizbullah weapons depots located in the country.

Israel and Egypt have maintained a tough blockade of Gaza since Hamas seized power in June 2007, and the hundreds of tunnels in the Rafah area are the main entry point for many basic items, as well as weapons.

US asks Syria not to impede talks

Tensions are rising between Israel and Syria.  Both key players in the prophesied Psalm 83 war.


US asks Syria not to impede talks

Israel plans attack on Hizbullah’s Syrian weapons depots, sources say.

The United States and other western nations are pressuring Syria not to negatively influence upcoming peace talks between the Israelis and Palestinians, Israel Radio reported on Saturday, citing a report from London-based Arabic language daily Al-Quds Al-Arabi.

The western powers also implored Damascus to prevent Syria-based Palestinian factions inimical to the peace negotiations, mainly Hamas  and the Islamic Jihad, from sabotaging the talks.

According to the report, Syria told the western nations in response to their requests that Damascus will not interfere in the activities of the Palestinian factions that stay within its borders.

Syria’s military is on high alert for an Israeli attack on Hizbullah weapons depots located in the country, according to a Saturday report from Kuwaiti newspaper Alrai.

The report cites European military sources as stating that Israel has increased flights of unmanned aerial reconnaissance vehicles over the border with Syria and that such activity is a sign of an imminent attack.

Another dormant Volcano erupts…


Volcano Quiet for 400 Years Erupts in Indonesia


Aug. 29: Mount Sinabung emits volcanic smoke in Karo, North Sumatra, Indonesia. The volcano spewed hot lava and sand high into the sky early Sunday in its first eruption in 400 years causing thousands of people living around its slope to evacuate their homes.

JAKARTA, Indonesia (AP) — A volcano in western Indonesia spewed hot lava and sand high into the sky early Sunday in its first eruption in 400 years.

Government volcanologist Surono, who uses only one name, said Mount Sinabung in North Sumatra province started rumbling a few days ago and the minor morning eruption has mostly stopped.

It sent sand and ash up to a mile (1.5 kilometers) high but lava only moved near its crater. It caused no major damage and “only dust covered plants and trees,” he said.

He said Mount Sinabung last erupted in 1600, so observers don’t know the volcano’s eruption pattern and are monitoring it closely for more activity.

Evacuations on the volcano’s slopes started Friday at the first signs of activity. Up to 10,000 people who fled are staying in government buildings, houses of worship and other evacuation centers in two nearby towns.

The government has distributed 7,000 masks to refugees and set up public kitchens so people can cook food, said Priyadi Kardono, spokesman for the National Disaster Management Agency.

Indonesia, the world’s largest archipelago, is on the so-called “Ring of Fire,” an arc of volcanos and fault lines encircling the Pacific Basin.

Great, well worth watching….


Watch Glenn Beck’s Restoring Honor (3 hours)

Watch all 3 hours of Glenn Beck’s Restoring Honor rally that happened on 8/28/2010. It was an amazing event that left me in tears more than I though it would. It was not about politics, but about honoring God, honoring those who have fought and currently fight for our freedom, and restoring honor and integrity to our great nation that we call America. A special thanks to CSPAN for covering the event.

This was an amazing event, and a very good article from the New York Times.  Surprisingly fair.

This is exactly what America needs, and I believe God has been working through Glenn to call his people back.  Not to a specific denomination or religion.  But God wants all his children to stand behind him as we enter these challenging times.

Only God can fix the mess we have gotten ourselves into and lead us to the promise land, what ever that may be.

My favorite quote from the article was the last paragraph on the second page, Glenn said:

“My role, as I see it, is to wake America up to the backsliding of principles and values and most of all of God,” he said. “We are a country of God. As I look at the problems in our country, quite honestly, I think the hot breath of destruction is breathing on our necks and to fix it politically is a figure that I don’t see anywhere.”

Wake up America, turn back to God!


At the Lincoln Memorial, a Call for Religious Rebirth

WASHINGTON — An enormous and impassioned crowd rallied at the steps of the Lincoln Memorial on Saturday, summoned by Glenn Beck, a conservative broadcaster who called for a religious rebirth in America at the site where the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. delivered his famous “I Have a Dream” speech 47 years ago to the day.

“Something that is beyond man is happening,” Mr. Beck said in opening the event as the crowd thronged near the memorial grounds. “America today begins to turn back to God.”

It was part religious revival, part history lecture, as Mr. Beck invoked the founding fathers and the “black-robed regiment” of pastors of the Revolutionary War and spoke of American exceptionalism.

The crowd was a mix of groups that have come together under the Tea Party umbrella. Some wore T-shirts from the Campaign for Liberty, the libertarian group that came out of the presidential campaign of Representative Ron Paul, while others wore the gear of their local Tea Party group, or of 9/12 groups, which were founded after a special broadcast Mr. Beck did in March 2009.

But the program was distinctly different from most Tea Party rallies. While Tea Party groups have said they want to focus on fiscal conservatism and not risk alienating people by talking about religion or social issues, the rally on Saturday was overtly religious, filled with gospel music and speeches that were more like sermons.

Mr. Beck imbued his remarks on Saturday and at events the night before with references to God and a need for a religious revival. “For too long, this country has wandered in darkness,” Mr. Beck said Saturday. “This country has spent far too long worrying about scars and thinking about scars and concentrating on scars. Today, we are going to concentrate on the good things in America, the things that we have accomplished, and the things that we can do tomorrow.”

Many in the crowd said they had never been to a Tea Party rally, but they described themselves as avid Glenn Beck fans, and many said they had been motivated to come by faith.

Becky Benson, 56, traveled from Orlando, Fla., because, she said, “we believe in Jesus Christ, and he is our savior.” Jesus, she said, would not have agreed with what she called the redistribution of wealth in the form of the economic stimulus package, bank bailouts and welfare. “You cannot sit and expect someone to hand out to you,” she said. “You don’t spend your way out of debt.”

Mr. Beck’s themes were ones he returns to on his radio and television shows, and people in the crowd echoed his ideas, saying that “progressives” were moving the country toward socialism and that the country must get back to a strict interpretation of the Constitution, which would limit the role of the federal government and do away with entitlement programs.

“The federal government is only to offer us protection from our enemies and help us when we need it,” said Ron Sears, 65, who came on a caravan of three buses from Corbin, Ky. “The states are supposed to control education and everything having to do with their citizens, except when they need federal help.”

Is it a slippery slope or innovation to save money?


California students get tracking devices

RICHMOND, Calif.—California officials are outfitting preschoolers in Contra Costa County with tracking devices they say will save staff time and money.

The system was introduced Tuesday. When at the school, students will wear a jersey that has a small radio frequency tag. The tag will send signals to sensors that help track children’s whereabouts, attendance and even whether they’ve eaten or not.

School officials say it will free up teachers and administrators who previously had to note on paper files when a child was absent or had eaten.

Sung Kim of the county’s employment and human services department said the system could save thousands of hours of staff time and pay for itself within a year.

It cost $50,000 and was paid by a federal grant

So how much good to we think this will really do if they have no authority to detain or arrest anyone crossing?

It is not like we have the ability to rapidly deploy US customs officers to the scene all along the border.

This sounds more like a deceptive political stunt in an election year.


Guard troops to deploy to Arizona border on Monday

PHOENIX – The first of 532 National Guard troops are set to begin their mission in the southern Arizona desert on Monday under President Barack Obama’s plan to beef up U.S.-Mexico border security, although they won’t have any law enforcement authority.

About 30 troops will start their jobs on the border Monday, and waves of more troops will be deploying every Monday until all 532 are expected to be on the Arizona border by the end of September. In May, Obama ordered 1,200 National Guard troops to boost security along the border.

California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger has said the first of 224 National Guard troops allocated for his state have finished their training and are expected to be deployed to the state’s border on Wednesday.

Troops in New Mexico were in different stages of training and don’t yet know when they’ll be deployed on the border. A Texas National Guard spokesman did not immediately return a call for comment.

The troops will be “extra eyes and ears” for U.S. Customs and Border Protection agents, and though they will have guns for self-defense, they will not have the authority to arrest anyone, said Arizona National Guard spokesman Lt. Valentine Castillo.

Another Earthquake (5.9), pretty near their worst recently of 6.3 back in 2003.


Three killed, 40 injured in Iran quake

Tehran: Three people, including two children, have been killed and 40 others injured in an earthquake which struck Iran’s biggest desert, Dasht-e Kavir, state television reported on Saturday.

The 5.9 magnitude quake struck on Friday south of the northern city of Damghan.

In a separate report, the state television website quoted secretary general of Iran Red Crescent, Zaher Rostani, as saying that an elderly woman was also among those killed in the quake.

The website said six villages near Damghan were damaged in the quake, which was about 278 kilometres  east of Tehran.

The tremor, which struck at 11:53pm (1923 GMT) Friday, was also felt in the capital Tehran.

Iran sits astride several major fault lines in the Earth’s crust, and is prone to frequent earthquakes, many of which have been devastating.

The worst in recent times was a 6.3 magnitude quake which hit the southern city of Bam in December 2003, killing 31,000 people, about a quarter of its population, and destroying the city’s ancient mud-built citadel.

More positioning and rumors of attack.

All the players mentioned are outlined in the Bible as participants in the Psalms 83 and Ezekiel 38 wars.

Syria also had a prophecy especially for its capital, Damascus.  Isaiah prophesied that Damascus would be totally destroyed and uninhabitable.  We know this has not been fulfilled, because Damascus has been inhabited continuously since before Jesus time.

Isaiah 17:1 – “The burden of Damascus. Behold, Damascus is taken away from being a city, and it shall be a ruinous heap.”


Report: Israel planning to attack Hezbollah arms depots in Syria

The Kuwaiti newspaper Al Rai reports that Israel is preparing to strike Hezbollah targets in Syria; Al-Arabi Al-Quds reports that western diplomats have asked Bashar Assad to refrain from interfering with Israel-PA direct peace talks.

Israel is planning to attack Hezbollah arms depots and weapons manufacturing plants in Syria, the Kuwaiti newspaper Al Rai reported on Saturday.

The report is based on Western sources who asserted that Israel has increased its military force level along the northern border in the Golan Heights and Mount Dov areas.

The report cited European sources who claimed that recent Israeli unmanned aerial drone flights over Lebanon and Syria signal Israel’s intentions to carry out operations in the area.

According to the report, Israel plans to attack Hezbollah weapons depots, including ones deep inside Syria that store long-range rockets.

The Al Rai report said that the situation on the Israel-Syria border is tense and that Syria could respond immediately to any Israeli attack and not demonstrate the restraint that it did after the Israeli Air Force bombed a suspected nuclear reactor in Syria in the fall of 2007.

According to the report, Syria’s military is on high alert and is strengthening its anti-aircraft defenses along the border with Israel and at strategic sites within Syria.

I should stop being surprised by this, as the current administration disregards the constitution at every turn unless it benefits them.  The two statements that shocked me the most due to their blatant admittance that different standards exist.

First the comment about the groups views matching the views of the white house.  Since when has that been a requirement in the US?

“An IRS agent told Z Street’s lawyers that the application was delayed because of a ‘Special Israel Policy’ that requires more intense scrutiny of organizations which have to do with Israel, in part to determine whether they espouse positions on Israel contrary to those of the current administration.”

Why would we have a ‘Special Israel Policy’ and why do their views have to match the current administration?  This is a tax-exempt status with the IRS.  Which they filed in January, eight months ago.


Focus U.S.A / Are U.S. tax officials punishing Zionists who won’t toe the White House line?

Right-wing Z-Street sues IRS over claims it withheld tax breaks because campaigners’ policies clashed with Obama’s: ‘This is a clear violation of the First Amendment.’

So is America’s Internal Revenue Service discriminating against Z Street on political grounds, dragging its feet in approving tax-exempt status for the pro-Israel right-wing group?

That’s what the organization, formed by two activists, Lori Lowenthal Marcus and Allison Rowen Taylor, to counter left-wing rivals like J Street, claimed in a lawsuit filed this week against the Commissioner of Internal Revenuein a U.S. court.

Z Street says it was told by an IRS official that its application for tax-exempt status had been held back because an IRS policy requires consideration of whether a group’s views on Israel differ from those of the current White House administration.

“Z Street filed for tax-exempt status in January of this year and, despite having met all of the requirements for grant of this status, the application has been stalled,” the group said in a statement.

“An IRS agent told Z Street’s lawyers that the application was delayed because of a ‘Special Israel Policy’ that requires more intense scrutiny of organizations which have to do with Israel, in part to determine whether they espouse positions on Israel contrary to those of the current administration.”

The move violated the U.S. constitutions guarantees of speech, Z Street said

“Not only is it patently un-American but it is also a clear violation of the First Amendment for a government agency to penalize an organization because of its political position on Israel or anything else”.

Kremlin denies plans to halt missile sales to Syria (update 1)

Russia stands by its international obligations and has no plans to stop an arms deal with Syria, a Kremlin aide said on Saturday.

Sergei Prikhodko said recent reports in some Israel media outlets misrepresented Russia’s position on cooperation with Syria.

The Haaretz daily reported on Friday that Israel was working to “thwart a Russian arms deal with Syria” and that Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu had asked his Russian counterpart, Vladimir Putin, to stop the sale of advanced P-800 Yakhont supersonic cruise missiles.

“Lately, some Israeli media outlets have been actively disseminating information distorting Russia’s position on the implementation of its obligations to Syria, including in the sphere of military and technical cooperation,” Prikhodko said.

“I would like to stress that the Russian Federation honors all the agreements that were previously signed between Russia and Syria.”

Anytime you hear about middle east peace talks involving Israel, your prophecy radar should go off.

It is one of the key signs, and one I hope we are not hear to see (due to the rapture).  Israel will sign a seven-year peace deal with the Antichrist, which he will break at the midpoint.  This will trigger the beginning of the seven-year tribulation period.

We believe there are several events that still need to complete before that time, but they are all in the process of being fulfilled.

Stay watchful…


Barack Obama ‘to visit Jerusalem and Ramallah to press for peace’

President Barack Obama will visit Jerusalem in coming months to press for a Middle East peace deal to be signed this year and implemented within a decade, according to a leaked White House report.

Obama will make his first visit as president to Israel and the West Bank to persuade both sides to agree to concessions for the sake of peace

The US president’s peace plan calls for Israel and the Palestinian Authority to hold a series of regular meetings over the coming year.

Mr Obama, who set Middle East peace as one of his top foreign policy goals when he assumed office in 2009, will make his first visit as president to Israel and the West Bank to persuade both sides to agree to concessions for the sake of peace.

Mr Obama will oversee the relaunch of direct talks between the two sides next week in Washington.

Although Washington is pushing for a comprehensive peace deal within 12 months, implementation will be spread out over a 10-year period, according to a report in Yediot Aharonot, the Israeli newspaper.

Washington wants the intensive talks to cover core issues, including borders, refugees and the future status of Jerusalem, according to the leaked White House protocols of a conference call held this week between senior administration officials and American Jewish leaders.

If the sides fail to reach an agreement on a particular issue, US officials will intervene and offer a compromise, the report said.
