I cherish our First Amendment. I know that Constitutionalists feel the same. But when does free expression cross the line into encouraging violence? And when do we know for sure that a person has crossed the line?
Kathy Griffin is disgusting. I’m sorry to say that, but I am using my First Amendment right. Actually, she is more than disgusting. In my eyes she is a criminal and should be arrested and found guilty of encouraging violence against the president of the United States of America.
Comedian Kathy Griffin holds bloody head of ‘decapitated Trump’
Comedian Kathy Griffin is starring in a new photo shoot that features her holding the bloody, decapitated head of a figure that resembles President Donald Trump.
The shoot, documented by TMZ, was with famed photographer Tyler Shields, known for creating edgy photographs.
“Tyler and I are not afraid to do images that make noise,” said Griffin in a video posted by TMZ.
“First, I’m an artist,” she explains, as she is shown holding the gory image of the Trump lookalike near her own head.
Then she clowns with Shields about the possibility of her going to federal prison for her provocative posing and the immediate need to move south of the border.
“We have to move to Mexico today because we’re gonna go to prison. Federal prison. … Because we’re not surviving this, OK?”
TMZ also posted an online poll to gauge reaction to Griffin’s photo. With about 40,000 respondents, 72 percent say the photo goes “too far,” with 28 percent indicating it’s “fair game.”
Griffin is no stranger to controversy, and certainly no fan of Trump.
Following the president’s address to Congress in March, she told MSNBC’s Chris Matthews she didn’t enjoy having to “watch this idiot for an hour and nine minutes” say “one hateful thing after another.”
“I’m a big resister and I don’t believe in compromise with this president. I also think he’s crazy, I think he’s mentally ill. He’s also an idiot.”
As WND reported in 2007, Griffin used her appearance on the Emmy awards program to tell Jesus to “suck it” and to claim full credit for the honor for herself.
At the 59th annual Creative Arts Emmy Awards, she was honored for having the Outstanding Reality Program “My Life on the D-List,” overtaking ABC’s “Extreme Makeover: Home Edition” after several attempts.
“I guess hell froze over,” Griffin announced. “A lot of people come up here and thank Jesus for this. He had nothing to do with this. … Suck it, Jesus! This award is my god now.”
You may disagree with me, and that is certainly your prerogative. But Kathy Griffin and her cohorts belong in jail. The FBI should be involved – OH WAIT – the FBI are not working for the American people at this point. That’s a topic for another article.
Even though my parents seldom spoke of Israel, I felt a burning in my heart during that miraculous Six-Day war. I knew nothing about Bible prophecy. I had never read nor even held the New Testament. I knew that my father secretly cherished Israel; he gave money to the Israeli government each year. Mom had grown up very secular, but dad was from an orthodox home and had attended a Hebrew high school.
I remember going to synagogue for the High Holy Days and watching my father’s face as he sang in Hebrew. My dad was not an emotional man, but when we were in our synagogue, I saw a man whom I hardly knew. I think that he was happiest when we were in synagogue.
The Miracle of the Six-Day War
I felt to write on this today. I felt that burning in my heart once again. There are probably those who are too young to remember this war. If that is you, you are about to read of God’s miraculous power which was displayed to the whole world. It has been 50 years, but to me it is like it was yesterday.
In the spring of 1967, following close to a decade of relative calm, Israel found itself poised for war against four of its Arab neighbors.
According to all the military analysts and pundits, it was to be a lopsided match. The Israel Defense Forces (IDF) consisted of 275,000 troops, compared to the 456,000 soldiers of the combined Iraqi, Syrian, Jordanian and Egyptian armies. The united Arab forces also had a decided edge with regards to weaponry and military equipment: they boasted more than double the amount of tanks, and close to four times the amount of combat aircraft. The three-week period preceding the Six-Day War was one of dread, shock and fright for the residents of the Holy Land.
With close to two and a half million Jews living in the tiny country, it had the highest concentration of Jews since pre-Holocaust Eastern Europe. So pessimistic was the outlook that the nation’s cemeteries and national parks were marked to become gravesites for the many who would surely perish in the course of the war.
However, despite all the prognostications, by the time the war ended, the territory under Israeli control had tripled in size. Jews returned to sites where their ancestors had lived for thousands of years, sites from which waves of terror were launched against them for so many years. The casualties and losses were painful, but minimal in comparison to all projections. The Jewish nation was miraculously victorious in the face of unbelievable odds.
History books speak of the “Hundred Years’ War,” the “Thirty Years’ War,” and many other long-fought battles. Here, in a matter of six short days, a nation managed to utterly rout not one, but four powerful enemies!
Jews across the globe thanked G‑d for the great miracles that happened. An incredible sense of pride and spiritual awakening gripped the Jewish people worldwide.
The following is a brief account of some of the major events of the war, with emphasis placed on a few of the miraculous occurrences which characterized its battles. We will also highlight the pivotal role of the Lubavitcher Rebbe, Rabbi Menachem M. Schneerson, of righteous memory, in calming and reassuring a frightened and trepidation-filled nation, both before and during the war, and foretelling its miraculous outcome.
Israel was celebrating its Independence Day when the Israeli government received word that Egyptian president Gamal Abdel Nasser was moving heavy artillery into the Sinai Desert. Additionally, large numbers of Egyptian forces were crossing the Suez Canal into the Sinai Desert. The Egyptian government had put its army on alert for an upcoming war. Syria and Jordan, too, moved into a state of alert and announced that they would not sit by idly if Israel attacked Egypt.
On the next day, the Egyptians instructed the United Nations Emergency Force (UNEF), whose stated role was to serve as a buffer between Israel and Egypt, to leave the Sinai Desert. UNEF complied with this directive. A week later, Egypt closed the Straits of Tiran to Israeli vessels and any ships that transported military equipment to Israel. Israel considered this move an act of war.
One week earlier, Israel had called up all army reservists for active duty. News of the pact between Egypt, Syria and Jordan, effectively creating a noose around Israel’s borders, brought home to a frightened Israeli public the reality of an impending war. The media began discussing the prospects of a war with much bloodshed. The term “second Holocaust” was bandied around.
On the 27th of May, the Israeli government began instructing its citizens to prepare themselves for war, offering self-defense primers. Bomb shelters were prepared, and students dug bunkers across the land.
Israeli Prime Minister Levi Eshkol delivered a national radio address in an attempt to calm the populace. Instead, he projected confusion and hesitancy. The Israeli public was in shock over the lack of confidence their prime minister demonstrated. The nation’s panic thickened.
That very same day, thousands of miles away in Brooklyn, New York, more than 20,000 children and adults gathered on the streets to celebrate the festive day of Lag BaOmer and Jewish unity. In his address to the gathering, the Lubavitcher Rebbe spoke forcefully about the situation in Israel. The Rebbe emphatically declared: “G‑d is guarding them and sending them His blessings and salvation in extraordinary measure. The people of Israel will emerge from the current situation with remarkable success.”
The Rebbe urged the children to do good deeds in the merit of their brethren in Israel, and then, in a strong voice expressing unmistakable confidence and assurance, proceeded to quote G‑d’s blessing and assurance (Leviticus 26:6), “And I will bring peace to the Land, and you will lie down with no one to frighten you . . .” He concluded by saying, “G‑d will extract the Jewish nation from all hardships with His full, open, holy and outstretched hand, and will bring them peace and tranquility . . .”
As foreign embassies called for their citizens to immediately evacuate from Israel, and foreign airlines were contemplating terminating their flights to Israel, the Israeli daily Yediot Achronotcarried a surprisingly uplifting headline: “G‑d Is Watching over the Holy Land, and Salvation Is Near,” the headline screamed. The article contained the Rebbe’s message: “There is no reason to be afraid, and there is no reason to frighten others. I am displeased with the exaggerations being disseminated and the panicking of the citizens in Israel . . .” (emphasis added)
Newspapers across Israel, from Haaretz to Al Hamishmar, carried uplifting headlines in the Rebbe’s name. The Rebbe’s reassuring talk at the Lag BaOmer parade reached the studios of Israel’s national radio, Kol Yisrael, and was broadcast with simultaneous translation from the original Yiddish to Hebrew.
The media also made note of the fact that the Rebbe urged all foreigners who were in Israel to remain there.
The Rebbe’s reassuring voice brought calm to many people. In an interview with Davar following the Six-Day War, Israeli President Zalman Shazar said: “I did not doubt for a moment that we would be triumphant. The Rebbe called me, and it was clear that he had full faith that we would be victorious.”
At a Shabbatfarbrengen (gathering) at Lubavitch World Headquarters in Brooklyn, the Rebbecalled on world Jewry to increase their performance of good deeds in the merit of their brethren in Israel, and especially to bolster the fulfillment of the mitzvah to put on tefillin. The Rebbe quoted the verse, “All the nations of the earth will see that the name of the L‑rd is upon you, and they will fear you.” Our sages tell us that we merit the fulfillment of this divine promise through wearing tefillin.
Chabad-Lubavitch followers around the globe immediately began encouraging Jewish men to don tefillin. Following the Rebbe’s instructions, and a special telegram he sent to the soldiers asking them to join in this biblical command, special emphasis was placed on going to the frontlines and assisting IDF forces in putting on tefillin. Those furthest from fulfilling the commandments back at home were often among the first who lined up to perform this special mitzvah.
By 7:30 AM, two hundred Israeli Air Force (IAF) planes were in the air, heading towards Egyptian airbases. Though flying very low, so as not to be detected by the scores of Arab radar sites, a Jordanian radar facility detected an unusually large number of aircraft heading towards the sea. The officer on duty immediately sent a message, “Inab,” the codeword for war, to Jordan military headquarters in Amman. The message was encoded and passed on to Egypt’s defense minister in Cairo. Miraculously, however, the Egyptian coding frequencies had been changed the previous day, and the Jordanians had not been updated. That morning, with the element of surprise in their favor, the IAF obliterated six Egyptian airfields—two in Egypt proper and four in the Sinai Desert—destroying 204 Egyptian planes, half of their air force. Though Egypt had sufficient anti-aircraft ammunition to destroy all the attacking Israeli planes, miraculously, no order was given for these missiles to be launched. The Israelis accomplished their mission with practically no resistance.
The total air superiority achieved on the first day of the war drastically reduced the enemies’ combat abilities.
Israeli airstrikes destroy two-thirds of the Syrian Air Force, more than 300 Egyptian aircraft, and most of Royal Jordanian Air Force.
IDF completes the capture of Rafah and El-Arish.
The “Government House” in Jerusalem is captured from the Jordanians.
IAF planes and pilots had now been involved in almost constant battle for twenty-four hours. The pilots were weary, and the aircraft low on ammunition and fuel. Inexplicably, the enemy did not take advantage of this weakness. Though in control of extensive forces in the Sinai Desert, and certainly capable of mounting a ferocious counterattack, Egyptian leaders were reduced to giving incoherent and disorganized instructions to their troops.
Israeli troops pressed on in the Sinai front. After capturing the Egyptian eastern outpost Abu-Ageila the day earlier, they now approached the heavily defended Kusseima outpost. As the Israelis drew near, they heard massive explosions. When they arrived they saw that the Egyptians, for no apparent reason, had destroyed their equipment and abandoned the base! As the day continued, it became clear that the Egyptians were hastily abandoning many of their outposts, some with all their supplies left behind.
Israel seizes Gaza, Kalkiliya and Ramallah.
“Ammunition Hill” in East Jerusalem, the mountainous area of northwest Jerusalem, and the fortress at Latrun, all fall into Israeli hands. Jerusalem is now encircled by Israeli forces.
Political pressure mounts as leading nations call upon Israel to accept a ceasefire proposed by King Hussein of Jordan. At the last moment, this ceasefire was nixed by the unwillingness of King Hussein to comply with the terms of the ceasefire he himself initiated! Indeed, “the hearts of kings and rulers are in the hand of G‑d.” This allowed the IDF to finish the task of completely annihilating the enemy’s military infrastructure, and to bring the Old City of Jerusalem under Israeli control.
The Old City had been under Jordanian control since 1948. For nineteen years Jews had been banned from visiting its holy sites, including the Western Wall, where Jews had prayed for thousands of years. On this day Jerusalem was reunited, and once again a united Jerusalem was the capital of the Jewish people.
Israel captures many cities. The most notable ones: East Jerusalem (including the Old City and the Temple Mount), Sharm El-Sheikh (taken by the Israeli Navy), Judea, Jericho, Gush Etzion and Nablus.

Hebron, a holy city that houses the resting place of our Patriarchs and Matriarchs. A city which in its recent past had boasted a sizable Jewish population and fifty-eight synagogues. But for some time now, Jews had been banned from living in this city, and its synagogues were destroyed. The IDF entering Hebron found white sheets hanging from the windows, and an Arab population surrendering peacefully. The war in the West Bank was concluded. Israel now had full control over the entire region.
Arab countries were bombarded with Egyptian and Jordanian propaganda claiming that American and English planes were assisting Israel in pounding their bases and country’s forces. This canard caused much distress to American and English embassies and citizens across the Middle East. Embassies were shut down, and innocent people driven from their homes. The “Big Lie” backfired on its perpetrators. On June 8, King Hussein contacted the English, pleading for assistance and asking them to pressure Israel to stop its incessant attacks. England ignored the request, largely because of Hussein’s backing of the lie.
Israel takes control of the holy city of Hebron,and Al Qantarah El Sharqiyya in the Sinai Desert. This places most of Sinai in Israeli hands.
Jordanian bridges are destroyed.
After suffering significant casualties in the offensive to overtake the Golan Heights, Commander Musa Klein’s platoon had only twenty-five men at his disposal. But they continued upwards.
When they reached Tel Fakhr, Klein ordered his men to charge the position, unaware that it was one of the most heavily fortified Syrian positions. It had bunkers, trenches and a double row of wire, along with an arsenal of antitank guns, machine guns and 82mm mortars. The handful of IDF soldiers were worse off than sitting ducks . . .
Syrian Captain Ahmad Ibrahim Khalili gave his men instructions not to fire until the Israelis reached the wire. In no time at all, however, it was too late. In the Syrians’ own words: “The Jews are already inside, and we’ve taken heavy casualties.” Commander Klein and his men were victorious, and continued up the Heights.

The Israelis were originally reluctant to invade the Golan Heights. It would be an uphill battle against a well-entrenched and fortified position, protected by an army of 75,000 Syrian troops. The Syrian troops and munitions were entrenched in deep bunkers which were immune to air attack. One noted Israeli general estimated that such a battle would cost the Israelis 30,000 lives. Incredibly, though, after only seven hours of heavy fighting on June 9th, IDF commanders established strongholds in the northern and central sectors of the Golan. The next morning dawned with the Israeli forces apprehensively awaiting another day of fierce fighting. The Syrians, however, had other plans. In a sudden panic, before the Israelis even approached their positions, they pulled out of the Golan and fled in total chaos, leaving most of their weaponry behind. The moutaintops that were strategically utilized to murder Jews in the Holy Land were now in the hands of the Israelis.
The final offensive was completed and, on that day, a ceasefire was signed.
Israel captures the strategic Golan Heights and Msada. A ceasefire goes into effect at 6:30 PM.
Major General Ezer Weizmann, Chief of Operations of the IDF puts on tefillin at the Western Wall
A euphoric and relieved Israeli population now awaited the day when they would once again be allowed to visit the Western Wall, the Kotel, in the Old City of Jerusalem. On the holiday of Shavuot, the holy site was opened for civilians. More than 200,000 came; they cried, prayed, and thanked G‑d for His incredible miracles and salvation.
On the very next day, the Chabad-Lubavitchtefillin booth was established in the plaza facing the Wall. In its first year alone, one and a half million people donned tefillin at the Wall. The booth, now a permanent fixture of the Western Wall, is manned daily from shortly after dawn until dusk. –source
I remember when victory was proclaimed, I jumped and cried. I didn’t even know why I had such an overwhelming reaction to this event. I can only imagine that the Lord was preparing me to really know Him. It was as if He was speaking to my heart and saying “This is your land and Jerusalem is My city – so rejoice! And I did rejoice!
My father Met Yeshua
I was saved in 1983. I shared the Lord with my father after my parents moved to Florida. I wrote to him often. I wanted him to understand what really happened to me, and mostly to understand that Yeshua (Jesus) is truly the Messiah of the Jewish people.
In 1997, my parents moved back because my father was very ill. He was in a hospice facility. I visited him every night after work. The last night I came and no one else was there. I held his hand and spoke of Yeshua. I asked my dad if he wanted to really know Yeshua, to squeeze my hand if he did. He did squeeze my hand, and then I told him that I would say a prayer of salvation for him – and for him to squeeze my hand if he understood. All through the prayer he squeezed my hand.
I had to leave, and when I returned home, my sister called and said that dad was gone. Through my tears I rejoiced because I knew where he was.
Israel Will See Another Miraculous War
I believe that we are close to the Ezekiel 38-39 war. The signs are all around. Again, Israel will be completely outnumbered. The world will no doubt believe that this is the end of the Nation of Israel. But God will once again intervene for His people.
Ezekiel 38:16-23 (KJV)
“And thou shalt come up against my people of Israel, as a cloud to cover the land; it shall be in the latter days, and I will bring thee against my land, that the heathen may know me, when I shall be sanctified in thee, O Gog, before their eyes.
Thus saith the Lord God; Art thou he of whom I have spoken in old time by my servants the prophets of Israel, which prophesied in those days many years that I would bring thee against them?
And it shall come to pass at the same time when Gog shall come against the land of Israel, saith the Lord God, that my fury shall come up in my face.
For in my jealousy and in the fire of my wrath have I spoken, Surely in that day there shall be a great shaking in the land of Israel;
So that the fishes of the sea, and the fowls of the heaven, and the beasts of the field, and all creeping things that creep upon the earth, and all the men that are upon the face of the earth, shall shake at my presence, and the mountains shall be thrown down, and the steep places shall fall, and every wall shall fall to the ground.
And I will call for a sword against him throughout all my mountains, saith the Lord God: every man’s sword shall be against his brother.
And I will plead against him with pestilence and with blood; and I will rain upon him, and upon his bands, and upon the many people that are with him, an overflowing rain, and great hailstones, fire, and brimstone.
Thus will I magnify myself, and sanctify myself; and I will be known in the eyes of many nations, and they shall know that I am the Lord.”
: an exaggerated usually inexplicable and illogical fear of a particular object, class of objects, or situation – source
I am not exaggerating when I say that there are many Muslims who are jihadists and want to kill “infidels” like you and me.
It is not an inexplicable or illogical fear. It is a fear based on history and on news coverage of the horrific slaughter of people by radical Islamists – worldwide.
Politically correctness and liberalism is definitely a mental disorder. It makes no sense to defend or march for jihadism. And do you know that every time a liberal tries to shut us down when we speak of Islamist terrorism, they are in essence defending the mass killing.
Good is evil and evil is good – just as God tells us in His Word:
“Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!” (Isaiah 5:20).
Manchester Jihad Bomber reported teacher for Islamophobia
Shut up any opposition, gain control of the narrative, and then commence the slaughter.
“Islamophobia: a word created by fascists and used by cowards to manipulate morons.” ~ Christopher Hitchens
“Islamophobia” opposition to jihad and sharia terror is a thought-crushing device designed to silence criticism of Islam. It is the means by which Muslim supremacists impose the brutal blasphemy laws on the West. And it’s working.
TWISTED LOGIC: SALMAN ABEDI REPORTED TEACHER AT HIS SECONDARY SCHOOL FOR BEING AN ISLAMOPHOBE BECAUSE HE CONDEMNED SUICIDE BOMBERS
THE SUICIDE BOMBER WHO KILLED 22 PEOPLE STUDIED AT BURNAGE ACADEMY FOR BOYS IN SOUTH MANCHESTER BETWEEN 2009 AND 2011
Abedi is said to have been part of an Arabic-speaking ‘clique’ at school
He is believed to have been part of a group of teens that became upset when one of their teachers brought up the topic of suicide attacks.
The teacher “asked what they thought of someone who would strap on a bomb and blow people up”, according to a source quoted by the paper.
The source said the boys then went to their RE teacher and lodged a complaint, telling them it was “Islamophobic”.
The source added: “[Abedi] was a silly boy, not very serious. He was not smart enough to be a mastermind of anything like that.”
A spokesperson for Burnage Academy said yesterday: “We feel the pain that Manchester feels. We stand shoulder to shoulder with our fellow Mancunians against terrorism in all forms.” – source
I believe that most of Islam may be wiped out in the coming Ezekiel 38-39 war. But as Christians, we should be praying for all Muslims – even the jihadists. The Lord has been reaching so many Muslims in recent years. Even the worst jihadi killer can be transformed in a heart beat by our Lord. These are lost people who have been indoctrinated with hate from birth.
Jesus died for them as much as He did for you and me!
The saying goes: “If you play with fire, you are going to get burned.”
The U.N. and globalists worldwide would have you think that if you do not allow Muslim migrants into your country, then you must be an Islamophobe. If that is true, then Saudi Arabia must have issues with other Muslims – or perhaps they understand that allowing migrants to flood their country means that there very well could be terrorists like ISIS in the mix.
Europe is in big trouble
There isn’t a day goes by that we do not read about European countries who have been overrun with Muslims who refuse to assimilate to their way of life. It is quite the opposite – these people come to non-Muslim countries to impose their way of life on Europe. And sometimes imposing their culture involves terrorism. I’m sorry if you are a politically correct person, but you seriously need to remove your head from the sand.
Huge scale of terror threat revealed: UK home to 23,000 jihadists
Intelligence officers have identified 23,000 jihadist extremists living in Britain as potential terrorist attackers, it emerged yesterday.
The scale of the challenge facing the police and security services was disclosed by Whitehall sources after criticism that multiple opportunities to stop the Manchester bomber had been missed.
About 3,000 people from the total group are judged to pose a threat and are under investigation or active monitoring in 500 operations being run by police and intelligence services. The 20,000 others have featured in previous inquiries and are categorised as posing a “residual risk”.
The two terrorists who have struck in Britain this year — Salman Abedi, the Manchester bomber, and Khalid Masood, the Westminster killer — were in the pool of “former subjects of interest” and no longer subject to any surveillance.
Anti-terrorism efforts came under renewed scrutiny when it emerged that Abedi, who murdered 22 people when he detonated a suicide bomb among crowds leaving a pop concert at Manchester Arena on Monday, had been a former subject of interest to MI5.
In a series of fast-moving developments yesterday and today:
● The prime minister downgraded the terror threat from “critical” to “severe” this morning, announcing that soldiers will remain deployed on the streets until Monday
● Assistant Commissioner Mark Rowley, the country’s most senior anti-terrorism police officer, said “significant arrests” meant that a “large part of the network” around Abedi had been wound up.
● Two key properties were identified: a flat in Blackley, north Manchester, where the explosives were made, and a short-term let apartment in the city centre where the device was assembled. Police said that they had “much of the risk contained”.
● It was announced that armed police would patrol some beaches this weekend as the threat level remained critical; there would also be a heavy police presence visible at hundreds of bank holiday events.
● Theresa May made the bombing an election issue by accusing Jeremy Corbyn of blaming British military action overseas for terrorist attacks in the UK. “I want to make one thing very clear to Jeremy Corbyn and to you: it is that there can never, ever be an excuse for terrorism,” she said.
● World leaders at the G7 summit in Sicily called on internet companies to act urgently and “substantially increase their effort to address terrorist content”. The prime minister said she was clear that “corporations can do more”.
Ben Wallace, the security minister, told The Times that the existence of a database of thousands of potential attackers was a stark illustration of the magnitude of the threat. “This reveals the scale of the challenge from terrorism in the 21st century,” he said. “Never has it been more important to invest in intelligence-led policing.”
MI5’s capacity to investigate is limited to about 3,000 individuals at any one time. People are added to and removed from the group of “live” suspects depending on assessments of who poses the greatest risk. When an investigation is closed, the people identified drop into a growing group whose risk is seen as reduced.
Sources say that the pool of “former subjects of interest” has swollen to 20,000 during the years of Islamist threat since 2001.
There is concern that the intelligence agencies have been poor at detecting former subjects of interest who return to extremism.
The two men who murdered Fusilier Lee Rigby in 2013 had been known to the agencies but had dropped down the priority list and their continued adherence to violent extremism was missed. David Anderson, QC, the former reviewer of anti-terrorism laws, noted concerns in his 2015 report about the “speed with which things can change” around suspects and “the difficulties in knowing how best to prioritise limited surveillance resources”. Senior police have also spoken of the difficulty in identifying the triggers that might “reactivate” extremist behaviour.
Raffaello Pantucci, director of international security studies at the Royal United Services Institute, said that the figures were “disturbing but not surprising”. He added: “For many of these people, the jihadist ideology never leaves them — it is very deeply ingrained.”
Anthony Glees, head of security and intelligence studies at the University of Buckingham, said: “To have 23,000 potential killers in our midst is horrifying. We should double the size of MI5, as we did in World War Two, and expand the number of intelligence-led police by thousands. We can’t go on as if this wasn’t happening.” Last night Ariana Grande, the American singer whose concert was targeted by Abedi, said she planned to return to Manchester to stage a benefit concert for the victims. Liam Gallagher will donate profits from his first solo gig next week to victims. –source
In America we have seen maps which identify ISIS training camps in many of our States. After 8 years of BHO, our government is overrun with Muslim Brotherhood affiliates. President Trump said that one of his goals was to proclaim the MB as a terrorist group. To date, this has not been addressed. I certainly hope and pray that our president will see that this needs to be prioritized accordingly. And I hope that Trump does not wait for a huge terror attack in the U.S. to finally address this.
The Lord is using Islam to accomplish His prophetic Word. I pray for our brethren in the nations which have opened wide the doors to Muslim migration. I believe that Islam will be almost crushed during the Ezekiel 38-39 war.
I also believe that we are extremely close to that war.
“And it shall come to pass at the same time when Gog shall come against the land of Israel, saith the Lord God, that my fury shall come up in my face. For in my jealousy and in the fire of my wrath have I spoken, Surely in that day there shall be a great shaking in the land of Israel; So that the fishes of the sea, and the fowls of the heaven, and the beasts of the field, and all creeping things that creep upon the earth, and all the men that are upon the face of the earth, shall shake at my presence, and the mountains shall be thrown down, and the steep places shall fall, and every wall shall fall to the ground.And I will call for a sword against him throughout all my mountains, saith the Lord God: every man’s sword shall be against his brother. And I will plead against him with pestilence and with blood; and I will rain upon him, and upon his bands, and upon the many people that are with him, an overflowing rain, and great hailstones, fire, and brimstone.Thus will I magnify myself, and sanctify myself; and I will be known in the eyes of many nations, and they shall know that I am the Lord” (Ezekiel 38: 18-23).
