NETANYAHU: A MASTER RACE; NOW A “MASTER FAITH”

In a speech on the anniversary of the 9/11 attacks, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu compared Islamist terrorist groups such as ISIS, Hamas and Hezbollah to Nazis: “We know this. We’ve seen this before. There’s a master race; now there’s a master faith.”
“The tactics are uniform. Terror first of all against your own people,” Netanyahu told attendees at the International Institute for Counter-Terrorism’s (ICT) 14th annual conference held at Herzliya, an Israeli technology center located about six miles north of Tel Aviv.
“There’s a master race; now there’s a master faith. And that allows you to do anything to anyone, but first of all to your own people and then to everyone else,” Netanyahu continued, in a reference to Nazi ideology stemming from Adolf Hitler’s belief, detailed in his speeches and writings, that Aryans were the “master race.”


“And what do you do to everyone else? For that you use new techniques. And the new techniques involve first of all, taking over civilian populations, putting yourself inside civilian areas, contravening the laws of war and the Geneva Convention; using your people as human shields, the same people you execute; and then firing indiscriminately at civilians. You hide behind civilians, you fire on civilians. And you fire rockets and missiles.


“And this creates a whole new set of problems. And these problems are born of the fact that it’s much harder to fight this kind of terror – much harder. It’s much easier to fight an army: tanks, artillery, command centers, open spaces. You destroy that, you destroy the army. End of war.


“But these people, because they’re forcing you to face up to the moral limits that democracies obey, are basically forcing you to fight a new war.”

Netanyahu described what he called the “moral divide” between Islamic groups like Hamas and Western democracies.


“All of Israel mourned on September 11th. In Gaza, they were dancing on the roofs. They were handing out candy,”
Netanyahu said. “That’s the moral divide. We mourn; they celebrate the death of thousands of innocents.

PROPHETIC FORESHADOW – ISLAMIC STATE AND AL BAGHDADI

There are many prophetic types and shadows regarding current events surrounding the Middle East. One of them is the declaration of the Islamic State as a caliphate to conquer the world and establish Sharia Law–the peace of Islam. It is behaving as like the Bible describes “to take a spoil” (Ezekiel 37:9, Isaiah 10:6) and beheading those who will not convert to Islam so they can live, eat, and trade (Revelation 20:4). This is an organization that in actuality was al Qaeda Iraq and the occupant of the Oval Office supported as a “moderate” proxy to overthrow Syria’s Bashar Assad. It has rapidly grown in support, stature and recruits throughout the region. Even its leader appears to meet certain prophetic end times criteria.
End time prophecy is full of foreshadowing, partial fulfillments and precursors. Throughout history, there has been rise and fall of those who were types of the end time apocalyptic figure–what Christians call the “antichrist,” what Holy Scripture calls the “beast” or, more specifically, the “Assyrian.” This antichrist figure is alluded to as the Assyrian in Isaiah 10:5,10:24,14:25, 19:23, 30:31, 31:8, Micah 5:5-6, and Hosea 11:5. Ezekiel refers to him as Gog, chief Prince of Magog. The Lord speaks of the Assyrian or Gog in Ezekiel 38:17, “Art you 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 ye against them?”
Abu Bakr al Baghdadi is the leader of the Islamic State. He claims he is a descendent of Mohammad and holds a Ph.D. in Islamic Studies. He was reportedly released from the Bucca prison in Iraq when it was closed by the United States in 2009. Significantly, he was born in Samarra, Iraq. Samarra is home of the al Askari Mosque, housing the 10th and 11th Imams and where the 12th Imam, the Mahdi, went into occultation, according to Islamic eschatology. Ancient Samarra was re-founded by the Assyrian King Sennacherib, who is described in Isaiah 10 as a type of the antichrist and whose army was destroyed by the Angel of the Lord when it came against Judah and Jerusalem (2 Kings 19, 2 Chronicles 32). Samarra was part of the Assyrian Empire and al Baghdadi’s birth there means he could be considered Assyrian.
Al Baghdadi is not likely the beast, but rather a prophetic likeness of what is to come.  While the Islamic State could be the beginnings of the prophetic “beast” empire, al Baghdadi does not appear to fit the complete prophetic criteria. We are living in amazing prophetic times. Watch, discern, and pray.

MOSQUE ATTENDED BY BOSTON MARATHON BOMBERS ASSOCIATED WITH ISIS
 

The Islamic Society of Boston, the former mosque of Boston Marathon bomber Tamerlan Tsarnaev and convicted terrorist plotter Abdul Rahman al-Amoudi, is under scrutiny once again after it was found that ISIS propagandist Ahmad Abousamra is another member.

The New York Post reports:

Now it can be revealed that another regular worshipper at the Islamic Society mosque was Ahmad Abousamra, who is now the top propagandist for ISIS.

Abousamra’s father, a prominent doctor, even sat on the board of directors of the Muslim organization that runs the mosque. He stepped down after the FBI began questioning his son.

The FBI suspects Abousamra now operates ISIS’s sophisticated media wing promoting the group’s beheadings and other atrocities through slick videos posted on the Internet. The brutally effective English-language propaganda campaign has helped attract thousands of Western jihadists, including at least 300 Americans.

It almost goes without saying that it’s incredibly troubling that eight people from one mosque are either accused of or convicted of terrorism charges, including the founder of said mosque. And of course, it shouldn’t matter what their religious affiliation is or what respective houses of worship they belong to: all of us should be concerned.

 

PROPHETIC ALERT: THE LOOMING WAR WITH ISLAM

The White House has now vowed to dismantle the Islamic State. President Obama said, “We are going to systematically degrade their capabilities. We’re going to shrink the territory that they control. And ultimately we’re going to defeat them.” There are many facets to what he is saying, including the free will of men, and the ancient prophecies held in the Holy Scripture. The world is quite possibly witnessing one of the major harbingers of end time prophecy. It could be just a type and shadow of what is to come. It could be groundwork for the end times. With a few additional details, the world could be standing on the threshold of the prophecies of Daniel, Ezekiel, Isaiah, John and many others.
Irrespective of your eschatological beliefs, it is undeniable that the traditional enemies of Israel will come against it in the end times. Those traditional enemies specifically include the Arab/Islamic people groups surrounding Israel today and have fought against it since the maturation of Ishmael, Esau, Midian, Moab, Amon, and the intermarrying of these lines becoming the “mixed” Arab peoples. They will come against Israel, that the Lord will intervene and, as Ezekiel 38:23 says, “…and I will be known in the eyes of many nations, and they shall know that I am the LORD.” And Israel shall, as in Ezekiel 39:28, 29, “…know that I am the Lord their God…Neither will I hide my face any more from them.”
In his June 2009 “New Beginnings” speech in Cairo, Egypt, the president historically reversed American foreign policy by shifting away from support of Israel and embracing Islam. He assisted in the strategic planning and funding of Arab Spring that ushered in Islam and Sharia Law throughout many Northern Africa and Middle Eastern nations. He threw his lot in with the traditional enemies of Israel and America through embracing the Muslim Brotherhood (MB) as a foreign policy partner and accepting al Qaeda as the premier MB military arm. United States tax dollars and political power supplied weapons and support for establishing, equipping and training a proxy to remove Syria’s Bashar Assad.

RADICAL IMAM: TERRORISM IS “PART OF ISLAM”
 
A British imam gave a television interview in which he defended acts of terror, including the beheading of foreign journalists, as consistent with the teachings of the Qur’an, Breitbart News blogger John Sexton reported.
London-based cleric Anjem Choudary told Russia Todaythat “terrorizing the enemy is in fact part of Islam” in an interview.  Choudary cited a passage of the Qur’an that calls for Muslims to use “steeds of war by which you may terrify the enemy of Allah.”
Choudary, also a lawyer who lectures on Sharia law, headed an Islamic group, Al Muhajiroun, which was banned in the United Kingdom. He said: “So terrorizing the enemy is in fact part of Islam.  I mean this is something that we must embrace and understand as far as the jurisprudence of Islam is concerned.”
Sexton wrote that, “Choudary went on to say that Muslims make no distinction between civilians and armed forces since civilians elect the leaders who direct the armed forces.”
  

FRANKLIN GRAHAM: WORLD TURMOIL COULD SIGNAL THE “END OF THE AGE”
The slaughter, persecution, and denigration of Christians in the Middle East and around the globe has a chilling resemblance to Gospel warnings of “signs of the end of the age,” the Rev. Franklin Graham says.

In a post on the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association website, the evangelist – the association’s president and CEO – notes “it seems the world is coming apart at the seams.  There appears to be no end to the bad news.”

Ticking off some of the most troubled places on earth, Graham notes the “killing of Christians by Muslims from Indonesia to Bangladesh to Pakistan,” China “tearing down church buildings,” “Christians tortured, beheaded, and crucified in Iraq, with villages burned and churches destroyed, and much the same in Syria.”

In the United States, as well, he writes, “There is great opposition to the church of Jesus Christ. We see this throughout the media, the entertainment industry, government, and politics.”

“Jesus warned His disciples in Matthew 24 when they asked Him about the signs of the end of the age,” he writes.  “He said there would be wars and rumors of wars, famines, earthquakes, and pestilence. He told them, ‘Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted, and shall kill you: and ye shall be hated of all nations for my name’s sake.'”

Graham proclaimed, “I don’t know if we have hours, days, months, or years – but as Christians, God calls us to take the truth of the Gospel to the ends of the earth.”

Franklin’s warning isn’t the first time the crisis in the Middle East has prompted speculation that the prophecy of the end of the world was being fulfilled.
