The summer of 1914 was terrible as
the demons of war were unleashed on the earth and the Great War broke out, which
later became known as World War I. It
appears that history is repeating itself as the summer of
2014 is a bad season for millions of people living in
war torn nations. I want to share some highlights with you so that you can
better understand the current events happening around
For many years I have written about
a secret world government that is working
behind the scenes to forge the different nations into one
global political unit ruled by the Antichrist. In order to understand the events
in the world today, I want to take you back in time
to the year 1916 at the height of World War I. The war was being fought by the
Entente group which consisted of Russia, France, England, Ireland, Portugal and
Japan. Opposing them were the nations of the Central Powers: Germany, the
Austrian-Hungary Empire and Italy. The Ottoman Empire had
secretly joined the Central Powers
Ottoman Empire was founded in 1299 as the Turks took control of the Middle East,
North Africa and the Balkans. During centuries of warfare, the Empire lost North

During the early part of 1916,
British, Russian and French diplomats secretly met in Paris to draw up plans for
the division of the Ottoman Empire once the war was over. A revolt had already
broken out in the area now known as Saudi Arabia and a special Arab force was
being led by the
British Colonel, Thomas Edward Lawrence (Lawrence of Arabia),

was unaware the world
government had a different plan for the Middle East. The major players at the
secret meeting in Paris were British diplomat Sir Mark Sykes and French diplomat
The resulting discussions later became officially
known as the Sykes-Picot Plan
and was officially signed on April 26, 1916.
At the time,
oil was being pumped out of what today is Iraq but no explorations had been done
on the Saudi Arabian peninsula and this part of the Middle East was considered a
wasteland. Lebanon and Syria ultimately came under
the control of France. England was given complete
control over the two seaports Haifa and Acre, so they
could exercise power over the oil shipped to these two cities via pipelines.
Palestine was to be
under the control of Russia, France and England, but England was eventually
given the mandate to govern Palestine by the League of Nations. Egypt became a
British colony, which gave them control over all land from the Mediterranean to
the Red Sea, including what is today known as Yemen and Jordan.
The old Babylon (Iraq) was divided
up between France and England; the northern part became French with its colonial
of Mosul. England took the rest of Iraq. Persia was divided between Russia and
The Middle East consists of many
ethnic people groups but the Sykes-Picot agreement did not consider their fate.
One ethnic group that has suffered more than anyone else is the Kurds, who had
their land divided into Turkey, Syria, Iraq and Iran. In the past, the Western
media has labeled them as troublemakers or terrorists.
In 1921 a military coup in Iran established an
independent nation, and in 1925, Reza Pahlavi (1878-1944) became king of Iran
and established the Pahlavi dynasty. However, the United States and the Soviet
Union invaded Iran and divided the nation amongst themselves on September 16,
1941 and Reza was removed as shah. With the end of World War II in 1945, the
allies agreed to end the occupation of Iran. The United States left the southern
part but Joseph Stalin refused to give up his portion of Iran and fomented a
civil war using Russian troops and Iranian communists trying to take over the
whole nation. Stalin established a communist republic in the north and withdrew
all Soviet troops from Iran in 1946 after negotiations. With the help of British
and U.S. intelligence services, the Iranian government was able to retake the
north and eradicate the Iranian communists.
Mohammad Reza (1919-1980), the son of Reza, was
installed as the constitutional shah but the power was vested in the parliament
and the prime minister. Iran produced a lot of oil but received very little of
its revenue since the Iranian oil industry was owned and operated by the
Anglo-Iranian Oil Company.
||Mohammad Reza Pahlavi
In 1951 Mohammed Mosaddeq was
elected prime minister of Iran. Shortly after he had taken office, he and his
political party, the National Front of Iran, decided it was time for Iran to
take control over their own oil production and proposed that parliament
nationalize the Anglo-Iranian Oil Company and kick out the British and American
corporations. He had enough votes to pass the legislation and ordered Iranian
officials to seize all oil installations in Iran on May 1st.
This did not line up with the world
government’s plans for Iran and it ordered the British and American governments
to pressure Mosaddeq to reverse the takeover. When he refused, the British
responded by pulling out their personnel, moved in a large fleet of warships to
the Persian Gulf and ordered a boycott of Iran. Mohammed Reza removed Mosaddeq
from his post, which caused a tremendous uprising in Iran and the Iranian
military realized that it could not control the masses on the streets.
Shah Mohammad had no option but to
reinstate Mosaddeq, who then asked parliament for emergency powers to rule the
country. Mosaddeq then stripped Mohammad Reza of his political power and
relegated him to a
figurehead of Iran.
The world government realized that
Mosaddeq had the backing of the Iranian people and they decided to use the
United States to clobber Iran. President Eisenhower was told to start the
procedure to overthrow Mosaddeq and have him removed from office.
At this time the Dulles brothers ran
the State Department and the CIA. John Dulles was the Secretary of State and
Allen Dulles was the Director for the CIA. Both brothers were deeply involved in
world government activities and they had accumulated a lot of political dirt
over the years. Eisenhower ordered John Dulles to take out Mosaddeq and Allen
Dulles was authorized to use whatever force he had at the
CIA to make it happen. Allen Dulles contacted Britain’s MI6 and the two agency’s
went to work. Agents were sent to Iran to recruit various
leaders and military officers,
bribing them with money, alcohol and prostitutes, and in a short time, their
group was ready to strike. Retired Iranian army general Fazlollah Zahedi was
promised to become the next prime minister if he would lead the coup. During
World War II, Zahedi had been a secret agent for the Nazi government of Adolf
Hitler and wished that Iran would have sided with Nazi Germany.
started the uprising and seized power by arresting Mosaddeq on August 19, 1953.
Mosaddeq was tried in court on charges of treason and
sentenced to house arrest for the remainder of his life and died on March 7,
1967. Foreign Minister Hossein Fatemi was executed in 1954. Mohammad Reza had
his political power restored, and as a thank you to the American and British
governments, he reopened the door to foreign oil companies to operate in Iran.
The people of Iran never forgot the dirty work of Great Britain and the United
demonstrations in 1979 forced
Mohammad Reza to flee the country and seek asylum in a number of nations.
Mohammad Reza thought he would be
welcome in the United States
since he had been on their payroll but America was
told by the world government to turn its back on the Shah of Iran.
After surgery in two different U.S. hospitals and a brief stay in Panama, he
ended up in Egypt where he died on July 27, 1980.
THE TEHRAN EMBASSY TAKEOVER
American embassy had a staff of over 1,000 persons when the Shah was the ruler
of Iran. A large number of them were CIA agents who worked closely with the
SAVAK secret police belonging to the Shah.
The new revolutionary government under the leadership of Supreme Ayatollah
Ruhollah Khomeini (1902-1989) knew of American intervention in Iranian politics
and wanted to make sure the CIA never again toppled an Iranian government.
Furthermore, they wanted to find out how many SAVAK agents were on the CIA
payroll and the identities of other Iranians whom the CIA had recruited over the
years. The CIA was aware of what the Iranians planned and the embassy staff was
reduced to a skeleton crew of 60. More than
likely the CIA station chief had
destroyed the files kept at the embassy just in case they were attacked.
Iranians knew that President
Jimmy Carter was weak and would hesitate to go to war in the event of an embassy
The Iranian government did not
function as one unit; the Fedayeen was a secret radical Marxist militant group
under the supervision of the revolutionary committee who stormed the American
embassy on February 14, 1979 and Ambassador William Sullivan surrendered to the
attackers in order to avoid any loss of lives. The U.S. State Department
immediately contacted Foreign Minister Ebrahim Yazdi, who ordered police units
to the embassy and forced the Fedayeen to leave immediately and the embassy was
back in American hands after a three
Both the State Department and the
CIA knew that the embassy complex in Tehran was not secure and most files had
been destroyed. The embassy was stormed once again on November 4, 1979,
by a group of radical
students and in a short time every American at the embassy had been taken
prisoner, blindfolded and paraded outside for the television cameras. The United
States was humiliated and Jimmy Carter proved to be a weak president and did not
take any decisive action.
This storming of the embassy was not
a spontaneous action by some radical students; it was a well-planned operation
by the Iranian security forces. Once the front of the embassy had been taken,
busloads of students arrived and the sheer numbers overpowered the American
In the evening, the Ayatollah
Khomeini spoke on the state controlled radio that he supported the embassy
takeover and that the U.S. spy den in Tehran had been captured. Some of the
embassy staff was able to flee in the chaos but later were rounded up by Iranian
security forces. Six American diplomats fled to the British Embassy and some to
the Swedish Embassy. They were later smuggled to the Canadian Embassy where they
stayed for three months. The Canadian intelligence service was asked by the CIA
to get the Americans out of Tehran and this operation was codenamed, “Canadian
Caper.” The Americans were given false identities and Canadian passports and
disguised as a
Canadian film crew. The official
version states that the Iranian security department bought the ruse and the
Americans were able to fly out on January 28, 1980 but most likely a secret deal
was made where the United States paid a ransom for the diplomats and a cover
story was produced in order to not awaken the anger of the Iranian
In order to further humiliate the
United States, the Iranian government released thirteen black American embassy
staffers in the middle of November to show solidarity with the oppressed black
people in America.
Embassy staffer Richard Queen was
released in July of 1980 due to a severe medical condition even though he was a
Caucasian. The other American hostages were held for 444 days and were not
released until January of 1981 on the day of President Ronald Reagan’s
Meanwhile, Jimmy Carter ordered
several military rescue attempts but they all ended in failure and
in the deaths
of American servicemen.
He also ordered sanctions on Iran to
cripple them financially but was never able to get the hostages released during
The television media during this
crisis constantly reminded the American people during the evening news how many
days the hostages had been held in captivity. This debacle was one of the major
reasons that Jimmy Carter was not re-elected for a second term.
The Iranian government took over the
embassy complex and turned it into a museum where visitors can see how the CIA
uses embassy buildings as spy centers in the different nations. Much of the
equipment used for spying was captured and is currently on display. In order to
be fair, it should be stated that all nations use their embassies as spy centers
and this holds true for every Iranian embassy in the world.
During the last few years the
Iranian government has been working to develop a nuclear industry and with it
the atomic bomb. The world government does
not want them to have nuclear weapons and has used the
United States and England to spearhead a devastating sanction program against
Iran. The sanctions have not worked since Russia and North Korea are aiding Iran
in its nuclear ambitions. The CIA has been waging a devastating cyber war
against the Iranian nuclear industry and have been able to insert one virus
after another into
Iran’s computer network. The Mossad has been able to use its agents in Iran to
assassinate scientists working on the nuclear program and some of the most
notable assassinations took place with agents on a motorcycle passing the car in
which the victim was traveling, attaching a magnetic bomb that exploded a few
seconds later and killed the occupants.
The Iranian security police was
ruthless and rounded up hundreds of suspects, which were tortured and hung from
construction cranes in the city of Tehran to instill fear into foreign
intelligence agents. I am sure that you are beginning to understand why the
Islamic government in Iran calls the United States “The Great Satan.”
THE MURDER OF IRAQ
invasion of Iraq in 2003 had nothing do with Saddam Hussein possessing weapons
of mass destruction; it was all about oil and control of the Middle East.
Hussein made a mistake in 1990 when he ordered his military forces to invade
Kuwait. Prior to the invasion, Iraqi diplomats had discussed the issue with the
American ambassador to Iraq, April Glaspie, and had been told that the United
States would not interfere if there was an invasion. The world government wanted
Hussein to strike Kuwait so it could crush and remove him from power. Hussein
learned the truth when President George H. Bush organized a coalition and
liberated Kuwait in January 1991, but stopped short of moving to Baghdad to
remove Saddam from power.
It was his son, George W. Bush, that
would finish the job. From 1991 to 2003 there was great pressure put on Iraq to
dispose of its weapons of mass destruction. United Nations inspectors
crisscrossed Iraq and oversaw the destruction of chemical and biological
Susan Lindauer had been recruited by the CIA to
work as a go between agent with the Iraqi government as it bent over backwards
to prevent a war with the United States and went to great lengths to verify that
all weapons of mass destruction had been destroyed. Even though the CIA had
evidence that Hussein had gotten rid of all weapons of mass destruction,
President Bush still ordered the attack on Iraq on March 19, 2003. In order to
hide the truth that Saddam Hussein did not possess any weapons of mass
destruction, Susan Lindauer was arrested and put in a federal prison facility
for mentally deranged prisoners. Her attorneys requested a speedy trial on the
charges made against her but the Bush administration delayed it and kept her
locked up. Years later she got a trial and the truth came out that there never
had been weapons of mass destruction in Iraq.
The madness in Iraq continues to
this day as Barack Obama sent American troops back to Iraq in June of 2014 to
fight the new threat which has become known as the Islamic State of Iraq and
Syria (ISIS). Obama has formed a new coalition that is stranger than fiction.
With American soldiers on the ground and American fighter jets and drones in the
sky, they have been joined by drones flown by the Iranian military and fighter
jets with pilots and ground crews from Russia. This strange coalition is now
fighting the murderous forces of ISIS to re-establish the Shia regime of Prime
Minister Maliki, whose goal is to suppress the Sunni and Kurdish population in
Lebanon, Syria, Iraq and Iran have
multiple ethic groups in their countries and for the last 98 years these
different governments have oppressed, arrested, and killed thousands from these
groups. This is the background to what is happening in the Middle East in 2014.
WHO IS STIRRING UP TROUBLE?
the world government has lost partial control over its grip on the world.
Russia’s President Vladimir Putin is not happy with the way the Soviet Union
He is a former KGB officer, but he is also an opportunist and loves political
power. Many Russians are nationalistic and bound to the Russian Orthodox Church.
Putin has taken advantage of this patriotism and is riding this wave of
Putin’s intelligence network was
able to manipulate Edward Snowden into betraying most of the American
intelligence operation and then defect to Russia. This has given Putin insight
into the innermost secrets of the American government operations and he has used
it skillfully. Barack Obama is a novice in international politics and Putin has
made him a laughingstock around the world. Putin is constantly assessing world
situations, and in order to strengthen his power, Putin has aligned himself with
China economically and militarily. The Chinese might not like the Russians but
personal feelings have to give way for political gain in the political chess
Vladimir Putin has openly refused to
obey the world government and decided it was time to take back Crimea. Obama did
the only thing he could do, make a lot of noise. The sanctions Obama imposed
were not on the country of Russia but on certain individuals
Russian government. Putin and his
cronies are laughing and openly mocking Obama. To show Obama who is the boss,
Putin told the United States that it will no longer sell its rocket engines nor
can the U.S. rely upon Russia to supply the international space station. The
American media has been quiet about reporting these events.
Russia has always wanted to have a
bigger say in the Middle East and Putin embraced the Syrian dictator Bashar
Hafez al-Assad to the anger of the American government. Thus, part of the
trouble in the Middle East right now stems from Russia’s involvement.
Since the world government supported
the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt, they told Barack Obama to help propel them into
power. When Mohamed Morsi was elected president of Egypt in 2012 and he began
the destruction of Egypt, Obama ordered the state department to support Morsi
and the Muslim Brotherhood. The Egyptian people revolted against Morsi and had
him ousted by the Egyptian military. This was not in the world government’s
playbook and they instructed Obama to freeze all military aid to Egypt. The
Egyptian military leadership knew that the United States could not be trusted.
Putin watched all of
this unfolding and offered to take over what the Egyptians had lost in aid from
the U.S. Thus, this was yet another situation that Putin kept Obama from having
any say in Egyptian politics.
The Russians have a seaport in Syria
which they are using to ship in military equipment, some of which is going to
what Obama calls “terrorists.”
also been active in Iran, and while the U.S. and Israel are trying to stop the
Iranians from getting a nuclear bomb, the Russians are collaborating to build
more nuclear power plants in Iran.
Obama has moved slowly to help the
besieged Iraqi government with air strikes against ISIS
Putin sent Russian fighter bombers
to strike the ISIS forces advancing on Baghdad.
Thus we can see that Putin is on a
roll and outmaneuvering
Obama in most hot spots around the world.
In order to understand the situation
in Turkey, it is necessary to look back in history. After the death of Sabbatai
Sevi in 1676, tens of thousands of Jews living in the Ottoman Empire converted
to Islam, but secretly retained their Kabbalistic Judaism. They became known as
“crypto Jews” and were known as the
“Dönmeh” in the Ottoman Empire. The city of Salonika (Thessaloniki) in Greece,
which was then part of Turkey, became their stronghold. The leadership of this
group decided in 1908 to overthrow the Ottoman government and they did so
through a movement called, the “Young Turks.”
Officially known as the Committee of Union and Progress, they
succeeded and ruled the empire until
the end of World War I.
When the victors from WWI were going
to carve up Turkey as a spoil of war, a former army officer named Mustafa
Ataturk founded the Turkish National Movemen, and received strong support from
in the west used the Greek army to subdue the revolt of the Turks and a war of
independence was fought from 1918 to 1922. The Greek army was eventually
defeated and driven out of the mainland of Turkey and Ataturk became the first
president of the republic of Turkey. He transformed Turkey from an Islamic state
to a secular state.
Turkey was neutral during World War
II until the last few months when it joined the Allies. During the Korean War
(1950-1953), Turkey sent 5,000 combat troops to fight the communist North.
Turkey joined NATO in 1954 and has been a member for 60 years. A large portion
of its officers have been educated in western nations, particularly the United
States, and many high ranking officers were and are crypto Jews. As a result,
Turkey became a friend of Israel with strong military ties.
all ended with the election of Prime Minister Tayyip Erdogan in 2003, who came
from an Islamic coalition, the Justice and Development Party (AKP) that he had
founded in 2001 while in prison on political charges. He was elected mayor of
Istanbul in 1994, but he was arrested and sentenced to prison in 1997 for
reading a poem at a public meeting in the Turkish province of Siirt. He was
sentenced to ten months prison and banned from holding public office. As prime
minister, Erdogan took revenge on his political enemies.
Erdogan knew about the ties with
Israel and that many Turkish high ranking officers were in fact crypto Jews. He
moved upon them as he blamed them for trying to take power through a coup. Many
of them were sentenced to long prison terms and Erdogan solidified his hold on
Turkey and started to reverse the trend of a secular state and made it more of
an Islamic state. He also has a desire to extend Turkish influence over the
territory lost after World War I.
Turkish laws are completely
different than what we have in America. When the police arrest a person in
Turkey, it is common to beat up the prisoner and use torture in order to get a
confession. A Turkish court is more of a mock court where the judge is part of
the political ruling elite and will sentence a person according to what his
superiors tell him, blatantly disregarding the principles of justice.
National Intelligence Agency (NIA) is the governmental intelligence organization
of Turkey. It was established in 1965 to replace the National Security Service
which was created in 1926. Turkish intelligence is
extremely effective and
for years worked with the Mossad until Erdogan took power as prime minister.
Turkish intelligence agents have infiltrated the CIA and the FBI by furnishing
them with language translators, which was exposed in 2002 by the FBI translator
Sibel Edmonds, who was born and raised in Iran. When the Islamic revolution took
place, her parents first moved to Turkey and later to the United States. Even
though Erdogan is not a friend of the United States, his government invests huge
amount of money to lobbying in Washington D.C. and huge sums are spent on
American senators and representatives for them to vote favorably on Turkish
Even though Turkey is a member of
NATO, it refused to allow the United States to send troops through Turkey in
2003 when President Bush attacked Iraq. The Kurdish population in Turkey had
fought a guerilla war for many years to force the Turkish government to cede the
homeland of the Kurds and allow them to establish their own nation. They have a
political party, the Kurdistan Workers Party, or PKK. Interestingly, the PKK had
their bases in northern Iraq, which has a huge Kurdish population and its own
military force known as the Peshmerga. This military force has been trained and
equipped by the Mossad. The United States invited the Kurdish leaders in Iraq to
attack the Iraqi army as the coalition forces attacked from the south.
The support of the Kurds infuriated
both the Turkish and Iranian governments since the Kurds had pushed for
independence in both nations.
Erdogan has never forgot this and is
furious that the Kurds are about to establish their own nation in northern Iraq.
dictator Bashar Hafez al-Assad is not on friendly terms with Erdogan and his
government. Assad remembers the close cooperation between Turkey and Israel
since the 1950’s and when the Syrian people started to rise up against Assad.
Turkey secretly aided the insurrection and allowed the Syrian opposition
fighters to cross the border and have safe haven in Turkey. Every Middle Eastern
leader knows that there is a lot of activity that happens behind closed doors
and secret deals abound.
Tayyip Erdogan decided that he would
like to see Bashar Hafez al-Assad toppled, but at the same time, he did not want
Israel to gain from this coup. In order to deal a death blow to the Kurds and
topple Assad, Erdogan gave orders for the Turkish military intelligence service
to build a new fighting group in Syria which has become known as the Islamic
State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS).
Just like France has its Foreign
Legion, Turkey has created its own foreign legion. Fanatical Islamic jihadists
from all over the world came to Turkey, received their training and were formed
into fighting units. The official commander of this force, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi,
is from Iraq and a Sunni Muslim. Baghdadi was held in a prison run by the U.S.
Army after the invasion but was later released. For some time he worked with
Al-Qaeda, but as his organization grew and became more brutal, the Al-Qaeda
leadership ousted them from their ranks.
videos show ISIS fighters driving around in new pick-up trucks with their black
flags waving in the wind. Bearded men are shown holding up AK-47s and anti-tank
weapons and we are told that these were the men that defeated the Iraqi Army at
Mosul. But the real story is not being told by the mass media.
How could some 5,000 ISIS fighters defeat four
Iraqi combat divisions totaling 60,000 troops?
The Turkish military adopted a
tactic from the American military invasion of Iraq in 2003. Prior to the
invasion, the CIA used agents that they had secured years previously to contact
key generals and colonels in the Iraqi Army. They were told that if they would
not fight the American invasion and hold their troops back, they would be
financially rewarded once Iraq had been secured by the United States. Many Iraqi
officers realized they could not win a war with the United States and they
betrayed Saddam Hussein and held back their troops at
the onset of the invasion.
The units that gave the Americans the most problem were the fanatical Iraqi
Republican Guard units.
Turkish intelligence agents
employed a similar tactic when they moved into northern Iraq and started to
contact the Iraqi military leadership and offered them a deal. If the Iraqi
officers betrayed the Shia government in Bagdad, they would be paid well and
have a secure future once the fighting ended.
When the ISIS fighters approached
the large city of Mosul, almost all of the Iraqi officers vanished and left
their units without leadership. When the rank and file soldiers realized that
the officers had left, they panicked and also abandoned their positions,
throwing away their weapons, taking off their uniforms and getting into civilian
clothing; some fled to the south and some went to the north where the Kurds were
There was an abundance of military
equipment left by the Iraqi Army on their bases around Mosul and it all fell
into the hands of ISIS. They are now in
control of T-55 and T-72 tanks, Humvees, rocket and grenade launchers, field
artillery, anti-aircraft guns, shoulder fired surface-to-air missiles, anti-tank
missiles, body armor, transport airplanes, light & heavy machine guns and
millions of rounds of ammunition.
This equipment for four Iraqi
divisions is now in the hands of ISIS and its Turkish military handlers. This is
equipment but what the American taxpayers paid to build up the Iraqi Army once
Obama pulled out the last American soldier.
To keep an army in the field, there
must be food, field kitchens, fuel trucks, field hospitals and water trucks
since most of Iraq in the northwest is a desert. Thus behind the radical
fighters are Turkish soldiers making sure that the ISIS fighters are supplied.
Large amounts of American combat equipment has shown up in Syria where it is
being used to fight Assad, the Hezbollah and the Iranian revolutionary guard.
How can young radical Muslim men
from Yemen, Libya, Pakistan or any other nation possess the necessary skills to
drive an American tank or other sophisticated military vehicles? How would they
know how to load and fire a howitzer? How would
know how to fly a helicopter?
The average young radical fighter
would never be able to do that without having first been trained. Military
equipment taken from the area of Mosul showed up in Syria less than a week
later. How did they drive these vehicles for hundreds of miles? Who drove the
There are two possible answers to these questions:
Turkish soldiers were brought in to operate
the American equipment and train the radical fighters. Turkey is a member of
NATO and most of its military hardware is from the United States.
soldiers defected to ISIS and were used to run the equipment.
How do we know that Turkey is behind
ISIS? If you go back for a couple of years and look at the uprising in Syria, we
know that Syria’s southern border touches Israel and Jordan to the south, Iraq
to the east, Turkey to the north and Lebanon to the west. From the beginning of
the civil war in Syria, Turkey opened its border for refugees and allowed
fighters to move back and forth. Lebanon is in the hands of Hezbollah, a Shia
group. Jordan is a close ally with Israel and the United States, so the only way
radical Muslim fighters could enter Syria was through Turkey, which has a large
and no one can fly in and out of Turkey without its intelligence service
knowing. The same holds true if someone comes in from a ship or from nations in
Jordan is also taking in refugees
but it also has training camps run by the CIA and American special forces are
training Syrian insurgents who are not part of ISIS or Al Qaeda.
There is no question that ISIS is a
Turkish foreign legion that has been unleashed in the region. Since Turkey
adheres to the Sunni form of Islam, it will not align itself with Iran, which
follows the Shia form of Islam. Thus the real motive in this fighting is between
two different sects of Islam and their fight is as nasty as we saw between the
Protestants and the Roman Catholics in Ireland.
ISIS is not only funded and supported by Turkey,
it is also financially financed by Sunni Muslim governments of the gulf nations,
which are small kingdoms around the Persian Gulf. Sunni Muslims consider the Shia Muslims to be infidels
want them eradicated from the earth. Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi ordered his men to be
ruthless and execute any Shia Muslim they captured. There have been hundreds of
massacres of Shia's; ISIS videotaped them and posted them on the internet for two
purposes. First, to make sure that their rich Sunni supporters would see
evidence that they had gotten their money’s worth. Secondly, to put fear into
the Iraqi Army, which they have succeeded in doing as they routed four Iraqi
Army divisions and took Mosul and all of Western Iraq. The majority of the
Iraqis are Shia Muslims and the current government in Baghdad is basically a
ISIS is more than just a bunch of
radical Muslims fighting infidels. They have a strong media department and know
how to work the social media. In order to attract the Sunni population in the
areas they control, ISIS is building roads, making sure that electricity is
available and in general doing what a normal local government would do for its
citizens. Radical young men cannot do such a thing
this is an example of skilled
leaders who know how to run a nation. Where did they come from? I believe these
are Turkish “advisors” who are taking care of this project.
Iran is a Shia state and they are
not happy with the situation in Syria and Iraq. For a number of years Iran has
been a supporter of the Assad regime and they are also supporting the Hezbollah
group that operates out of Lebanon. The Iranian government has ordered Hezbollah
units to enter the fight in Syria on the side of Assad, but they have also sent
Iranian special forces to fight in Syria. Hezbollah has seen thousands of its
men killed in the fighting and the families of these fallen soldiers are putting
pressure on the Hezbollah leadership to stop supporting Assad.
For some time Iran also has
supported the Palestinian organization, Hamas, but there was a fall out and
Hamas and the PLO are currently sitting on the sidelines to see who is going to
come out on top of this war.
Millions of Iraqis fled to Syria to
get away from the violence in Iraq but the violence has followed them. Syrian
refugees are flooding into Lebanon and Jordan by the millions and causing great
strain on these governments.
There are no good options for the
United States in the Middle East. The situation in Egypt has become calm and the
relationships between Israel, Egypt and Jordan are stable. Tunisia has reverted
to an Islamic state and the people who wanted to be set free are under a new
totalitarian regime. Libya has fallen into a number of tribal factions and there
is no strong central government.
Russia, Turkey, Iran and the Gulf
States are playing with fire while they try to gain control over the region and
eliminate the people they do not like. When I look at the world government, I
see that they have decided to let the fire burn itself out and then move in and
take control. In the meantime thousands of people are killed every day and hell
is being enlarged with all these lost souls. Few of these people are born again
believers in Christ. What we are witnessing
now is a tragedy that should
not be allowed and proves
the world leaders are evil.
People are still talking about the
horrible time of Nazi Germany and World War II but they do not see that the same
kinds of atrocities are taking place today. Nothing has changed as the demons of
war are let loose once again.
People living in the West are paying
more money for gasoline and this is about the only pain we are experiencing. If
an organization like ISIS gets desperate and is able to get their hands on
weapons of mass destruction, they could in desperation attack Israel, which in
turn would unleash a firestorm of nuclear weapons that could force Russia and
Iran to act foolishly and unleash their nuclear weapons. If that happens, World
War III would immediately break out.
GOOD NEWS FROM THE MIDDLE EAST
On March 15, 2007, a group of
Christian Turks with financial sponsors from the West started a television
channel called Hayat. The main advisor was the Swedish Pentecostal evangelist,
Tore Pansell, who also has worked as a Christian radio and television director
in Sweden and Denmark. Even though he was told that it was impossible to get
access to television channels in Turkey, and even if they did, no Turk would
dare to show his face on television. God gave them a miracle and today this
Christian station is broadcasting 24/7. This work cannot be compared with
Christian television networks in the United States since it is the pure Gospel
with no hype or push for money.
Hayat is being led by the Holy
Spirit and there is divine wisdom behind the whole ministry. It is a satellite
broadcast and most people in the Middle East have their own satellite dishes and
do not need a cable network. There is no ownership of this ministry, they do not
have any headquarters and thus cannot be bombed. Hayat is a network of different
ministries like the Swedish mission organization “Ljus i Oster” (Light in the
East), the Swedish Pentecostal Broadcasting network IBRA, plus many others in
different nations. There are a number of studios in Turkey and in other nations
where the programs are filmed. Most of the programs are made by Turks, but they
are utilizing some American programs like Charles Stanley. Other mission
organizations are paying for satellite airtime.
Currently programs are also made by
Christians from Azerbaijan, Turkmenistan and Uzbekistan, but the majority of the
programming is in Turkish. In 2013, the response to the station was around 775
persons per month, who contacted the ministry asking for prayer, Bibles,
directions to local churches and most of
all for salvation. Once the
programs have aired, they are posted on their website and some 748,000 persons
downloaded videos in 2013.
Thousands of Muslims are coming to
Christ and the number of Christians is increasing in every nation in the Middle
East despite the wars and the hate that is going on.
Here is just one testimony that was
conveyed by the Swedish Mission Organization, Ljus i Oster:
“A Muslim man from Turkmenistan who lived in Iran
had become a leper. The family isolated the man and put him in a small house on
their property. To entertain him, they gave him a television and a satellite
dish. As he was surfing for different programs, he came across the Hayat channel
and began to watch the different programs. After some time he accepted Jesus as
his Lord and Saviour and was saved. One day the leprosy vanished as Jesus healed
him. A friend of this man reported the healing to Hayat. His family reacted
violently, and instead of rejoicing over his healing, they kept him isolated
because they now believe he has gone insane.”
A number of different mission
organizations to the Muslim nations continue to report how thousands of Muslims
in the middle of the night with a
vision of Jesus and accepting Him as their Saviour. As a result, they seek out
Christians or churches to get Bibles and be further instructed in the Christian
faith. Many are contacting the Hayat channel to get started in their Christian
As the Devil and his fallen angels
are devastating the nations in the Middle East, God is also at work and
harvesting souls. If the awakening among the Muslims continues, it could be that
in time Christians will outnumber Muslims and the wars will stop. Let us pray
that this will happen.
