Peace And Safety - Oct 8

Here's some scripture to get us rolling:

For when they say, “Peace and safety!” then sudden destruction comes upon them, as labor pains upon a pregnant woman. And they shall not escape. But you, brethren, are not in darkness, so that this Day should overtake you as a thief. You are all sons of light and sons of the day. We are not of the night nor of darkness. Therefore let us not sleep, as others do, but let us watch and be sober. (1 Thessalonians 5: 3-6)

What is the one thing this world wants, Israel in particular? It wants peace and safety, right? Why will this fail? Because humanity wants to do it their way, not God's way. Let's face it, this world believes some type of godless utopia can be achieved if we all just work hard enough at it. I am reminded of the saying, "Careful what you wish for, you just might get it!".

Look at tiny Israel, a David in a crowd of Goliaths. Hamas and the PA want to launch attacks from both the Gaza Strip(Gush Katif) and from the West Bank (Judea and Samaria). Ehud Olmert and the rest of Israel's politicians appear to be oblivious to the coming storm. Condi Rice (who should bloody well know better) is useless, eschewing plain talk for some type of Kemalist fantasy that just ain't gonna happen.

Speaking of knowing better, I am reminded of a clever saying that we don't display our ignorance by what we don't know, but by what we think we know that just ain't so. Behold Angelina Jolie, a very beautiful woman but incredibly dense when it comes to Islam. Would you believe she wanted to actually film in Pakistan about the slain journalist (and Jew) Daniel Pearl? Good Lord, the mind boggles. If Hollywood was bad enough, I could easily live with that. However, the rot goes much deeper. Fifth column jihadists, aka 'useful idiots', seem to be quite happy undermining America and much of the Free World (including Canadistan) as well.

It certainly is tough being a journalist nowadays, as the spilt blood of Daniel Pearl would attest to. It becomes downright murderous if you're a Russian journalist who is critical of the Kremlin's policies. Anna Politkovskaya was found shot to death in her apartment in Moscow, a victim of Russia's penchant for using contract killers to settle disputes. It's hard to say what the political ramifications of this will be, but the idea of a free press appear to be dead as a doornail in Putin's Russia.

From Israel to America to Russia, we go to Europe where Czech Jews living in Prague were to be targeted in a foiled attack. Man, things are not going well over there either! In England, Jack Straw has run afoul of Muslim sensibilities by suggesting that Muslim women should remove their veils (headscarves are OK though). As well, four members of the Household Cavalry who were returning from Afghanistan are being intimidated by Islamic yobs over renting a place. Those plucky Danes are once again stirring up more perpetual outrage as a conservative party dared to mock the ol' Prophet Mo.

There is a huge problem that is brewing between NATO and the EU. A nasty rivalry has ensued between the two and doesn't appear to be letting up anytime soon. Meanwhile, Nicolas Sarkozy has decided to create a 'wise' council of 14 people to revive the moribund EU constitution. It remains to be seen if this is the seed of the Ten Kings as told in Daniel ch. 2.

Lastly from MEMRI comes a link about the chilling reality of anti-semitism in the KSA.

Before I close, I want to give you a quick X-Def update. On the sidebar to your right, you might have noticed that 'Foehammer' and 'Prophecy News Watch' have been removed. Foehammer is not a bad blog, it just didn't seem to be too terribly active. PNW was removed because I felt like it. In its place is 'Israel My Beloved' which I think will more than make up for those other two. Please let me know what you think. I always cherish your comments, even the critical ones.

Forever I'll Be,
The Man in Black
