This Pastor Isn't Handing Over His Sermon Transcripts to the Government
A public health official who also is a lay minister says he will not turn over his sermons and related documents to the state of Georgia, which he contends fired him for what he preached from the pulpit of his church.
"My faith has fueled me," Dr. Eric Walsh, who served as an associate pastor and still preaches, said at a press conference Wednesday at the Georgia State Capitol in Atlanta. "I want to be able to protect the faith of others, so I really have no intention of turning over the sermons."
Walsh, 45, accepted a job as district health director with Georgia's Department of Public Health in May 2014. He expected to start work around the middle of June, according to his lawyers at First Liberty Institute.

But a week later, officials with the health agency requested copies of sermons Walsh had preached before congregations of the Seventh-day Adventist Church.

Russia Tests Nuclear Warhead That Can Outsmart US Anti-Missile Systems.
Russian strategic missile troops reportedly launched an RS-18 ballistic missile on Tuesday. The launch may have been a test of the advanced hypersonic glider warhead, which would be able to defeat US anti-missile systems.
Popular defense blog MilitaryRussia.ru says the launch was meant to test Russia's hypersonic glider warhead, currently known by its developer designation, 'object 4202', or Aeroballistic Hypersonic Warhead.
image: http://www.prophecynewswatch.com/images/ads/medishare2b.jpg
A select few countries are currently developing the technology. The US has the HTV-2, a device developed by DARPA that has two partially successful tests under its belt. 
The Chinese warhead using the same technology is called DF-ZF, with Beijing first confirming a test in 2014. 
India is also studying hypersonic flight technology, but unlike Russia, the US and China, it is reportedly not developing a strategic missile warhead.
A hypersonic glider vehicle (HGV) is different from a conventional ballistic missile warhead in that it travels most of the time in the stratosphere rather than in space.

New Push For After School Satan Clubs
Before very long, American children may be able to join and attend clubs dedicated to the indoctrination of schoolchildren towards the service and worship of Satan, much the same way as the average Sunday school, where children gather together to learn to serve and worship Jesus and understand the Bible.
The 'after-school Satan Club' could be coming to a kid's grade school near you, faster than you may think or expect. 
Rick Anderson for the LA Times recently explained that the Satanic Temple, an organization based in Salem, Massachusetts, continues to make headlines with its latest venture.
As Anderson explains, Lilith Starr --a devil's advocate in every sense -- is in a rush to get her After School Satan Club (ASSC) started. As founder of the Satanic Temple of Seattle, she's under pressure from national satanic headquarters -- located in the Colonial witch trials city of Salem-- to launch a counter-offensive against grade school Christianity by opening an after-school Satan Club.
image: http://www.prophecynewswatch.com/images/ads/medishare2b.jpg
"I think many people have the misunderstanding that we are some kind of tongue-in-cheek troll group," said Starr, 44, a Harvard grad who sometimes dresses in church robes and, when circumstances demand, paints her lips and part of her face black.

Bad Religion - Many Christians Endorse Heretical Beliefs Without Realizing It
A survey of 3,000 people conducted by LifeWay Research found that although Americans still overwhelmingly identify as "Christian," startling percentages of the nation embrace ancient errors condemned by all major Christian traditions.
Is American Christianity evolving into a faith with more 'believing unbelievers' and 'unbelieving believers' than simply true believers? 

These oxymoron references perhaps best describe both the confusion and apostasy related to the doctrines and practices embraced by many professing Christians in America today.

In a recent article for breakpoint.org, G. Shane Morris decries the apparent lack of understanding of Bible theology by Americans in general. "In knowing both the content of the Bible and the doctrinal foundations of Christianity, we Americans aren't just at the bottom of our class. 

We are, as Ross Douthat argues in his book, "Bad Religion," a nation of heretics", Morris stated.
image: http://www.prophecynewswatch.com/images/ads/medishare3b.jpg


A harsh-sounding statement -- but the statistics paint the sorry picture.  A survey of 3,000 people conducted by LifeWay Research and commissioned by Ligonier Ministries found that although Americans still overwhelmingly identify as "Christian," startling percentages of the nation embrace ancient errors condemned by all major Christian traditions. 

Morris notes that these are not minor points of doctrine, but core ideas that define Christianity itself. "The really sad part? Even when we're denying the Deity of Christ, we can't keep our story straight. 

Americans talking about theology sound about as competent as country singers rapping", he observed, citing several highlights from the survey.

Seven out of ten respondents in LifeWay's survey affirmed the doctrine of the Trinity--that the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit are three Persons but one God, and six in ten agreed that Jesus is both human and divine. Their orthodoxy--and consistency--ended there. 

The rest of the survey unearthed some beliefs that are shocking to note:

- More than half went on to indicate that Jesus is "the first and greatest being created by God," a heresy known as Arianism, which the Council of Nicaea condemned in 325 A.D.

- Seventy percent of participants--who ranged across socioeconomic and racial backgrounds--agreed there's only one true God. Yet sixty-four percent also thought this God accepts the worship of all religions, including those that believe in many gods.

- Two-thirds admitted that everyone sins a little bit, but still insisted that most people are good by nature, which directly contradicts scripture ("All have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God," and "The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it?" Romans 3:23; Jeremiah 17:9). 

- Over half said it's fair for God to exercise His wrath against sin, but seemed to waffle about which sins deserved wrath (not theirs!). Seventy-four percent said the "smallest sins" don't warrant eternal damnation, in contrast to Jesus' half-brother, who when writing at the Holy Spirit's inspiration taught that even one infraction of God's law is enough to sink someone. 

- A full 60 percent agreed that "everyone eventually goes to Heaven," but half of those surveyed also checked the box saying that "only those who believe in Jesus will be saved." 

Granted, the average professing Christian may just be wearing a popular tag that makes them feel better about their spiritual side. Evangelicals, however, are known to be more accurate in their interpretations of scripture and more serious in the actual practice of their faith.

As Morris noted, everyone therefore expected them to perform better than most Americans. No one expected them to perform worse. Here are some of the bizarre and contradictory beliefs that many evangelicals hold to:

- Seven in ten evangelicals--more than the population at large--said that Jesus was the first being God created. 

- Fifty-six percent agreed that "the Holy Spirit is a divine force but not a personal being." 

- A huge increase in evangelicals (28 percent, up from 9 percent) indicated that the Third Person of the Trinity is not equal with God the Father or Jesus, a direct contradiction of orthodox Christianity. 

- By definition, evangelicals in this survey believed that "only those who trust in Jesus Christ alone as their Savior receive God's free gift of eternal salvation." Yet nearly half agreed that "God accepts the worship of all religions including Christianity, Judaism, and Islam."

- Two-thirds of evangelicals--more than Americans in general--said Heaven is a place where all people will ultimately be reunited with their loved ones. Many of these folks evidently see no contradiction between their casual universalism and the evangelical creed that salvation comes through faith in Christ alone.

- Two out of five evangelicals say "worshipping alone or with family is a valid replacement for regularly attending church".

Morris further noted that former Newsday religion reporter Kenneth Briggs recently told Religion News Service that the faith he finds in "mega-type churches" is a "Bible-less," "alternative version of Christianity." Scripture, he says, has become "a museum exhibit, hallowed as a treasure but enigmatic and untouched."

The Bible remains phenomenally popular, of course. Practically everyone has one in his or her home, and many families own four or five. But Briggs characterises our love for the Bible as love for an "artifact," a "keepsake," or a lucky "rabbit's foot." This talisman of faith mainly stays on the shelf or mantle next to the urn filled with grandpa's ashes.

Briggs says it was in a prison, not a church, where he encountered the most vibrant and intimate familiarity with God's Word. 

Most everywhere else, his observations confirmed a recent Barna survey, conducted for the American Bible Society, which found that less than half the country can name the first five books of the Old Testament and that a similar number think John the Baptist was one of Jesus' twelve disciples.

Why does it matter that we've become a nation of doctrinal dunces? What harm is there in flunking Christianity 101?  

Morris stated that, for Christians, the answer is obvious. If we really believe what we profess--that the incarnation, life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ is the single most important fact of history and eternity--then we'd better improve our grade. 

Knowing who the God we claim to worship is can no longer be a third priority if we want the world to take us seriously as his followers:

"In the subduction zone between a nominally Christian culture and a distinctly post-Christian one, sparks are flying--in florist's shops, bakeries, universities, legislatures, and bathrooms nationwide.

Those who want to live in peace with the still-sizeable Christian remnant need to move past lazy dismissals of religious "bigotry," and learn why Christians have come to the conclusions we have for 2,000 years", Morris wrote.

"The results of this survey ought to embarrass all of us. But they should also serve as a kick in the pants to re-familiarize ourselves with our own religion--or at least our own history. There's no excuse to be a nation of heretics. But even that is preferable to being a nation of ignoramuses", Morris concluded.

A recent report on these findings published in ChristianityToday.com quoted LifeWay Research director Scott McConnell's related views:  

"Sometimes, as Christians in America, we're so busy running from one thing to another without taking the time to really closely see how this relationship with God works...I think you can see this in the variety of responses [to this survey] where people are in the right theologically on several questions and then completely missing it on others."

Herein lies the greater danger. Indications are that where Christians are 'missing it' creates a wide-open door for unBiblical practices -- a natural consequence of the departure from knowing and accurately applying the Scriptures.  

In Canada --which is very similar to the United States in many ways -- some recent church developments exemplify this principle. 

A breibart.com story published at the end of September, Thomas D. Williams reported the case of an atheist pastor coming out of the woodwork. The pastor of West Hill United Church found herself in the middle of a firestorm ever since she came out publicly as a disbeliever. 

Ordained in the Canadian United Church in 1993, the Rev. Gretta Vosper slowly began doubting the truths of Christianity until she found herself an avowed atheist, denying not only the Deity of Jesus Christ but even the notion of God altogether. 

All this time, however, she continued to lead her church, deemphasizing questions of the supernatural while stressing 'community', based on secular values of inclusiveness and compassion.

Reports suggest that the 58-year-old pastor has a "loyal following" at her Protestant congregation in suburban Toronto, which she describes as a good fit for nonbelievers "looking for a community that will help them create meaningful lives without God."
image: http://www.prophecynewswatch.com/images/ads/TFP_freedvd.jpg
Members of the flock have expressed their consternation in a variety of ways, wondering aloud how a declared atheist can be allowed to lead a confessionally Christian congregation.

"My understanding is that the United Church of Canada is a 'Christian' church based on the teachings of Jesus Christ," Pamella Fell wrote on a United Church website. "Why, why, why is she still with the UCC if she isn't a Christian?"

Yet, as Williams notes, the United Church which prides itself on its inclusiveness is treating the matter gingerly, reluctant to declare anything off-limits.

"At the heart of the concerns being raised is a tension between two core values, both of which are central to our identity as United Church. The first is our faith in God. The second is our commitment to being an open and inclusive church," wrote the Right Reverend Jordan Cantwell, head (moderator) of the United Church of Canada.

The crux of the matter seems to be that for a church that has progressively embraced every aspect of secular culture, it has become hard to say "no" to anything. 

With a wink and a nod to the Bible, the United Church has accepted abortion, same-sex marriage, divorce, female ordination and openly gay ministers. But atheism seems a bridge too far.

In other words, for the United Church, it's all right to "mold" your idea of God so that he (or she) can approve of homosexual sex and transgenderism and killing babies in the womb, but please don't deny the divinity outright.

These increasingly common tendencies, to 'pick and choose' from the scriptures or to prioritize personal preferences irrespective of what the Bible teaches, appear to have filtered down to the average American Christian.

According to David Fiorazo in a recent publication of westernjournalism.com:

"Many American citizens claim to love God and believe we live in a Christian nation, but most of us would admit our actions don't always match our words, and our culture generally reflects darkness rather than the light of Christ. 

People have more than one Bible in their comfortable homes, but prefer not to study God's Word because it would interfere with how they want to live. Many profess to be saved, and yet these same folks often say there are many ways to Heaven, the meaning of sin has changed, or Jesus is not God...."

Fiorazo concludes that what people seem to be following is humanism, moral relativism, New Age, Universalism or a religion of works, none of which can be seriously defended with Scripture. The evangelical and Protestant Church was compromised many decades ago and obviously weakened. 

Part of Fiorazo's chilling conclusion: "One result is there are countless souls sitting in our churches who are not saved or don't really believe the doctrine of the church they attend...Welcome to the new post-Christian America".

Microchip Implants Being Marketed As Human Body Enhancements
A subtle but powerful change in strategy that fights the psychological barriers: microchip implants for human beings are now being marketed as enhancements to the human body; the creation of a 'superman', of sorts.
Microchipping of animals for medical and tracking experiments has gradually become acceptable, but humans?  Whoa, not so fast!  Privacy proponents, conspiracy theorists and faith-based groups have consistently warned of the dangers from their various viewpoints.
And yet, those nagging concerns are slowly fading, as people become conditioned to embracing the attendant security and convenience while shrugging off the risks. 
This transition has been made easier by a subtle but powerful change in strategy that fights the psychological barriers: microchip implants for human beings are now being marketed as enhancements to the human body; the creation of a 'superman', of sorts.
image: http://www.prophecynewswatch.com/images/ads/medishare2b.jpg
And this change in approach seems to be working. In a recent report, organicandhealthy.org described Australia as the first country to begin microchipping its population. As recounted in the report, back in 2010 CBS news reported that the Australian government had a potential RFID microchipping plan in the works related to the health care system.

Jews And Christians Reject UNESCO Vote With Rejoicing Over Sukkot Holiday
UNESCO chose a rather odd time to ratify its resolution against Israel's "occupation of Al-Aqsa Mosque/Al-Haram Al-Sharif" and Jerusalem's Old City. The Resolution was passed during the week of Sukkot, one of three great Jewish Feasts that have for at least 3,000 years beckoned pilgrims to Jerusalem.

UNESCO chose a rather odd time to ratify its resolution against Israel's "occupation of Al-Aqsa Mosque/Al-Haram Al-Sharif" and Jerusalem's Old City.
The declaration, which was initially submitted by Algeria, Egypt, Lebanon, Morocco, Oman, Qatar and Sudan, officially claims those sites as part of the "Cultural Heritage of Palestine." In doing so, it disavows Jerusalem's historical and religious connection with both Judaism and Christianity.

The Resolution was passed on Tuesday, October 18 during the week of Sukkot, one of three great Jewish Feasts that have for at least 3,000 years beckoned pilgrims to Jerusalem.
image: http://www.prophecynewswatch.com/images/ads/medishare2b.jpg
And in recent years, Sukkot - the Feast of Tabernacles - has also drawn thousands of Christians to the Holy City.

And so it was that this year, while the Israeli media bemoaned the UNESCO resolution, Jerusalem's streets throbbed with singing, laughter and rejoicing.

The irony was unavoidable. Joyful festivities, celebrated in real time, loudly and cheerfully drowned out the abstract words of the resolution.

During the feast, family gardens, terraces, verandas as well as plazas and eateries are, for the week, enclosed in fabric walls and roofed with palm branches and other greenery. These "booths" remind the Jewish people of their desert trek from Egypt to the Promised Land. 

Such fragile, temporary shelters are meant to recall the need for dependency on God, and his deliverance from evil powers.

As a Christian sojourner, I've lived in Jerusalem for 10 years. And I've become increasingly aware of how deeply the roots of my own Christian faith are anchored in the ancient soil of Judaism.

Like many Christians, from time to time I visit what is sometimes called the "Wailing Wall," where Jews wept for centuries over the loss of their land. 

Today, believers of myriad traditions fold scribbled prayers into the cracks and crannies of the wall's surface, sensing that somehow that God seems a little closer, a little more attuned.

One can only wonder how an organization like UNESCO - recognized as a global guardian of the world's most precious heritage sites - is able look upon the massive, archeologically acclaimed Herodian stones of the Jewish Temple's Western Wall, blatantly deny their history, and solemnly declare it a solely Muslim site.

Groups of Israelis and foreign Jewish visitors also make their way to the Temple Mount (despite stringently enforced and brief hours of admittance). They are forbidden to carry Bibles or prayer books, sing or even move their lips in prayer. They find this appalling.

And they aren't the only ones.

Christian tourists also visit the Temple Mount, equally scrutinized lest they demonstrate the least indication of obvious worship. One of my friends' Bible was confiscated from her backpack by guards at the security checkpoint. It was never returned to her.

Of course, Christian tourists also visit the Western Wall by the tens of thousands to sing, pray and marvel at the sight of a Bible story come to life before their eyes. 

They've toured Bethlehem and Nazareth and the Sea of Galilee. And now they stand praying in the shadow of what was once the Temple of God.

UNESCO's resolution is infuriating to Israelis, not only because of its historical, archeological and political deceit, but also because it attempts to seize Judaism's holiest geography.
image: http://www.prophecynewswatch.com/images/ads/DTF_Course.jpg


Less has been said about our Christian heritage and its scandalous denial, but it is equally undisputable. For starters, there is ample archeological evidence of a pre-Islamic Christian basilica buried beneath the Al-Aqsa' Mosque's present structure. Mosaic tiles continue to be unearthed.

But even more compelling are the biblical accounts of Jesus, recording his own visits to the Jewish Temple.

He was carried there as an infant to be consecrated to God. At 12, he was "found... in the Temple courts, sitting among the teachers and asking them questions." Other notable visits involved his expulsion of money-changers, and his grim predictions of the Temple's destruction.

And this year, there is even greater irony. Because it was during Sukkot - the Feast of Tabernacles - when Jesus went "up to the temple courts and began to teach" (John 7). 

He declared - probably during a traditional Sukkot water ritual - "If anyone is thirsty, let him come to me and drink..." The temple guards took note of him saying, "No one ever spoke the way this man does."

Attempts to de-Judaize - and thus de-Christianize - Jerusalem and the rest of Israel seem to have begun in earnest in 2000 at Camp David, when PLO chief Yasser Arafat famously informed US President Bill Clinton that there was never a Jewish Temple on the Temple Mount.  

This latest UNESCO resolution is simply a continuation of that mythology.

Meanwhile, as Jews and Christians complete the celebration of Sukkot, the ongoing strategy to remove their history, faith and heritage remains rather absurd. 

And, judging by the sounds of singing, laughter and rejoicing, its foolishness is only exceeded by it futility.

Secular, Feminist, and Pro Life: The Message Goes Mainstream
The pro-life tent is constantly expanding, but some of our new allies might surprise us.
In the third presidential debate last week, Hillary Clinton said women should be able to end the lives of their preborn babies right up until the very moment of birth, long after a child is viable outside the womb.

In a recent Marist poll reported by the Wall Street Journal, eighty percent of Americans and some sixty-percent of self-described pro-choicers oppose this extreme view. Instead, they support restricting abortion to the first trimester of pregnancy.

Just more evidence that the landscape is changing. Not only is Clinton's extreme view on abortion unpopular--it's outdated. 
image: http://www.prophecynewswatch.com/images/ads/medishare2b.jpg
A 2015 survey by the Public Religion Research Institute found that millennials are more likely than their parents to say that abortion ought to be legal only in certain stages and certain circumstances.

According to another poll by Students for Life of America, just 17 percent of millennials agree with the Democratic presidential nominee that abortion should be legal right up until birth.
All of this led Ruth Graham to conclude in Slate that the pro-life movement is in the midst of a transition. But it's not just in the sense that it's getting younger. It's also attracting the non-religious.

Not that long ago, being pro-life meant you were almost certainly a Catholic or evangelical. But now, the belief that killing unborn babies is wrong is transcending religious and even political boundaries.

The Approaching Economic Storm
Why are financial experts predicting the chances of a recession in the next year with estimates ranging from as low as 25% to a 60% or higher?
The next recession appears likely to hit in the spring of 2017, and many experts are expressing increased concern over the weakened position of the Federal Reserve. 
After years of low rates from the Federal Reserve and massive stimulus programs from China, there may be very little left that governments can do to push back against this macroeconomic tide. What is worse, it is widely believed that the Fed is planning to raise rates in December of 2016. 
Whereas its intention may be to provide room to lower rates later in a crisis, there is also a strong chance that this could help precipitate the recession.
Though notoriously difficult to predict, financial cycles are an inescapable part of a fiat currency system based on fractional reserve banking. 
image: http://www.prophecynewswatch.com/images/ads/medishare3b.jpg
A currency model built on debt and controlled with the imperfect levers of interest rates set by central banks, the sin of usury, writ large across the globe, will expand and contract. The only warnings of the coming crash are a set of leading economic indicators, perhaps six months to a year in advance.

Will Russia Take Down The Entire Internet If We Go To War?
We just learned a very important lesson about how exceedingly vulnerable our Internet truly is. On Friday, three massive waves of cyberattacks took down some of the biggest websites on the entire Internet. Amazon, Twitter, Netflix, Reddit, the New York Times and the Boston Globe were among the prominent websites affected.
Security experts tells us that with each passing month these kinds of attacks are becoming larger and more sophisticated. And most Americans don't realize this, but nations such as Russia, China and North Korea have been feverishly developing extremely advanced cyberwarfare capabilities. 
image: http://www.prophecynewswatch.com/images/ads/medishare2b.jpg
So could a day come when one of our enemies takes down our Internet completely for an extended period of time?
According to CNBC, the primary target of the attacks on Friday was a hosting company known as Dyn, and these attacks came from "tens of millions" of IP addresses simultaneously...
Internet traffic company Dyn on Friday warned of another cyberattack after websites and services across the East Coast were shut down earlier in the day. Dyn told CNBC Friday afternoon the attacks are "well planned and executed, coming from tens of millions IP addresses at same time." 
"We have begun monitoring and mitigating a DDoS attack against our Dyn Managed (Domain Name System) infrastructure. Our Engineers are continuing to work on mitigating this issue," Dyn said on its website at 11:52 a.m. ET.
Specifically, the types of attacks that we witnessed on Friday are known as "denial of service" attacks. If you are not familiar with denial of service attacks, the following is a pretty good explanation from Business Insider...

Fleet Of Android Robots To Begin Policing The Streets By 2017
According to a report from the Gulf Information Technology Exhibition (GITEX), a fleet of android robots will police the streets of Dubai as early as 2017. 
Videos from Dubais annual computer and electronic trade show featured new prototypes of the robot shaking hands, saluting, and brandishing a touchscreen interface by which people can report crimes or pay traffic fines. 
It is another indicator that we are fast approaching an age of automatic policing.
image: http://www.prophecynewswatch.com/images/ads/medishare1b.jpg
The robot cop prototype is able to scan faces, possibly serving as a new mobile street surveillance tool. 
In the coming months, a team consisting of Dubai Police, IBMs supercomputer, Watson, and Google will improve the robots artificial intelligence technology so it can spot people from 10 meters or 20 meters away, approach them and greet them, said Dubai Polices Technical Innovations Department Head Major Adnan Ali.
Were expecting for it to be in tourist areas at first in 2017, near Burj Khalifa, GPR, City Walk and by 2020 we want to have a more thorough area covered.
Dubais android cops follow in a recent but frenetic tradition of automatic policing experiments being deployed by law enforcement agencies all across the world. Many were shocked by the weaponized robot drone that took out cop-killer Micah Xavier Johnson in Dallas earlier this year. 
image: http://www.prophecynewswatch.com/images/ads/TFP_freedvd.jpg
But the bigger surprise is how much robotic and drone technology has been integrated into our newly militarized police departments. There is a drone-catching drone in Japan, a riot-control drone in India, an Israeli rover bot, traffic robocops in the Democratic Republic of Congo  and many others.
We are likely about to see a beta acculturation stage of militarized policing in which the general population is exposed to the reality of drones and android cops. 
Once the shock of this wears off, you can expect full squadrons of robotic police equipped with state of the art AI technology and exoskeletons. 
Truckers and KFC attendants arent the only middle-class American workers who will lose their jobs to automation  cops are on the chopping block, too.

Why the State Department Won't Acknowledge The Truth About Fatah
Obama's political agenda--his entire policy concerning Israel and the Palestinian Arabs--conflicts with telling the truth about Fatah.
The U.S. State Department denounced the latest terrorist attack in Jerusalem by condemning "the statements glorifying this reprehensible and cowardly attack."
At first, it might seem like good news President Barack Obama's administration finally acknowledged and criticized the horrendous glorification of terrorist attacks we read about almost every day.
Until you notice the State Department forgot to mention one little thing--the identity of those it condemned. Who exactly has been making statements "glorifying" the attack? Who called the terrorist a hero and a martyr? Who defended and justified the murder of an Israeli Jewish grandmother?
image: http://www.prophecynewswatch.com/images/ads/medishare2b.jpg
The answer is Fatah, whose chairman is Palestinian Authority (PA) President Mahmoud Abbas.
The Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO) created the PA in 1994 to govern territories from which Israel was withdrawing. Yasser Arafat, head of the PLO, was the first head of the PA. After he died, Abbas succeeded him.
The PLO consists of eight terrorist organizations, Fatah being the largest. Arafat was chairman of Fatah and the PLO. Following his death, Abbas become chairman of Fatah and the PLO.

Palestinians: Fatah Prepares For War With Israel
Fatah is a two-faced hydra; one face tells the English-speaking international community what it wants to hear, namely, that it supports a two-state solution and seeks a peaceful settlement to the conflict with Israel, while the other tells the truth: it is committed to an armed struggle and the "liberation of Palestine," and is even preparing for war with Israel.
Some 300 members of the Palestinian Fatah faction, headed by Palestinian Authority (PA) President Mahmoud Abbas, have begun receiving "military training" in the Gaza Strip in preparation for war with Israel.

The armed wing of Fatah, Aqsa Martyrs Brigades - The Martyr Nidal Al-Amoudi Division, announced that its members have been enrolled in a new military academy for training "fighters" in the Gaza Strip. The academy, inaugurated recently in the Gaza Strip, would train the "fighters" on various fighting methods "in the context of a program for preparing for any future battle" with the "Zionist enemy."
The Nidal Academy was named for Nidal Al-Amoudi, a top Fatah militant killed by the Israel Defense Forces on January 13, 2008, after he carried out a series of armed attacks against Israeli civilians and soldiers during the Second Intifada. 

"The academy has been named after the commander Nidal Al-Amoudi (Abu Hussein) to fulfill his dream of qualifying the fighters militarily, morally, religiously and revolutionarily," explained a statement released by the Fatah armed group. Noting that some 300 "fighters" have already joined the academy, the group said that they have begun undergoing training in various methods of warfare.

"We have pledged to prepare an army of fighters by devoting our full abilities and energies to consolidate the option of armed struggle as the only means to liberate Palestine," the group declared.

The Martyr Nidal Al-Amoudi Division is one of several Fatah-affiliated militias that continue to operate in the Gaza Strip despite Hamas's violent takeover of the area in the summer of 2007. These groups pose no threat to the Hamas regime, which is why they are allowed to operate freely in different parts of the Gaza Strip. 

The groups' explicit policy is to prepare for war with Israel and launch terror attacks against Israelis. Hamas, however, which expelled their leaders from the Gaza Strip and continues to persecute dozens of Fatah activists in the Gaza Strip, is not on their hit list.

The Fatah-affiliated militia inauguration of its own "military" academy in the Gaza Strip is a novel move. In recent years, Fatah armed groups have posted videos of their men undergoing military training orchards and fields, far from the watchful eyes of their rivals in Hamas. Now it seems that Hamas has nothing to fear from the Fatah militants, as Israel is the sole target.

Thus instead of training their men to retake the Gaza Strip and liberate it from the oppressive regime of Hamas, the Fatah "fighters" are busy preparing for war with Israel or fighting among themselves.

Drowning In Debt: 35 Percent Of All Americans Have Debt Past Due
More than a third of all Americans can't pay their debts. As you will see below, 35 percent of the people living in this country have debt in collections. When a debt is in collections, it is at least 180 days past due.
And this is happening during the "economic recovery" that the mainstream media keeps touting, although the truth is that Barack Obama is going to be the only president in United States history to never have a single year when the economy grew by at least 3 percent.  

But at least things are fairly stable for the moment, and if this many Americans are having trouble paying their bills right now, what are things going to look like when the economy becomes extremely unstable once again.
image: http://www.prophecynewswatch.com/images/ads/medishare2b.jpg
The 35 percent figure is a nugget that I discovered in a CNN article about Detroit that I was reading earlier today...

China Faces Demographic Nightmare From Forced One Child Policy
China, instead of growing rich and then getting old, like European nations and Japan, will grow old long before it has a chance to get rich.
Over the past decade or more, we've talked on BreakPoint about China's looming fertility crisis. This, of course, is the result of the Communist Party instituting what became known as the "one-child policy" back in 1979.

With very few exceptions, Chinese couples were permitted to have only one child. The policy, in the words of the Washington Post, "led to untold millions of forced abortions, sterilizations and horrific abuses of power."

It also led to a huge demographic problem. As birthrates plummeted, there were fewer and fewer workers, and China's overall population aged rapidly. China, instead of growing rich and then getting old, like European nations and Japan, will grow old long before it has a chance to get rich.
image: http://www.prophecynewswatch.com/images/ads/medishare2b.jpg
This has the Communist Party very worried. So worried that they've done an about face. They not only dropped the "one-child policy," they've tried to convince Chinese couples that having two kids is their patriotic and political duty.

Clumsy party propaganda is telling people to "Train your body, build up strength, get ready for the second baby!" Another slogan read "Get to sleep early, stop playing cards, work hard to produce a child!"

The response? Yawns and outrage. You see, after 35 years of being told "one child is enough," people have come to believe it. As a recent article in the Washington Post put it, "Having only one has become ingrained in Chinese culture and society, and people no longer believe the party should be telling them what to do in the bedroom."

Raising Children In A Country Ruled By Moral Confusion
Very few people bother to consider the basis for their moral convictions. As Christian parents, it's our responsibility to raise our kids with feet firmly planted on objective moral ground. But what does that mean when they're growing up in a country ruled by moral confusion? Oh, this election.
How it's brought out the worst in everyone, including the two people running for office.

As crazy as the last few months leading up to the election have been, I haven't felt inspired to write anything about it...until now.
The recording of Trump making vulgar and lewd comments about women is bringing me out of my election silence. But not for the reason you might think.
image: http://www.prophecynewswatch.com/images/ads/medishare2b.jpg

In the past few days, I've watched with amazement as scores of articles denouncing Trump's character have been shared on social media by my liberal friends. They are rightly outraged at what he said. 
But these are the same friends who are pro-choice, support transgender bathroom choice, believe there's no problem with sex outside of marriage, and think that not supporting same-sex marriage is bigotry.
Liberal America, from whence does this hodgepodge of moral views come, other than from your own fickle liking?  

Should not your moral outrage be tempered to the whisper of an opinion by the realization that, without a belief in God, you haven't an objective foot to stand on?
This week's showcase of moral confusion from our collective society demonstrates how few people bother to consider the basis for their moral convictions. 

As Christian parents, it's our responsibility to raise our kids with feet firmly planted on objective moral ground. But what does that mean when they're growing up in a country ruled by moral confusion?
First, it means we must proactively teach our kids how to think critically about the nature of morality...unlike the world around them.

The Temple and End Times - Amazing New Developments
For us who are watching prophetic developments in the earth, there is something very exciting about monitoring the historic preparations taking place for the rebuilding of Israel's Temple. In the last few weeks, two big stories have hit the headlines that are worth noting.
The first news item concerns the resurfacing of a report of a mysterious gemstone that could belong to the original breastplate of the High Priest. The second news headline is that Israel's reconvened Sanhedrin has taken the momentous step to nominate a High Priest - for the first time since the Temple's destruction in AD 70!

Why Israel Greatly Fears Barack Obama's Last Few Months In Office
Between right now and January 20th, 2017 is a real "pressure point" for U.S. relations with Israel. Barack Obama has always desired to "leave a legacy" in the Middle East, and at this point the only option for accomplishing anything tangible is through the United Nations.
The Israeli government is extremely concerned that Obama may attempt to take such action before he leaves office, and so they recently asked Secretary of State John Kerry if the U.S. would promise to veto any anti-Israel resolutions that come before the UN Security Council for the rest of Obama's time in the White House. 
image: http://www.prophecynewswatch.com/images/ads/medishare3b.jpg
Unfortunately for Israel, the New York Post is reporting that Kerry flatly refused to make such a promise...
Israel faces a unique window of danger from Nov. 9 to Jan. 20: What might President Obama do in his final days in office to slam the Jewish state?

Christians and Hong Kong's Umbrella Movement: Defying Tyranny
In early October, Joshua Wong, a 20-year-old student from Hong Kong, flew to Thailand to meet with fellow students in that country. 
No sooner had he gotten off the plane than he was detained by Thai officials, who were eager to curry Beijing's favor, and then deported back to Hong Kong.
It's not the first time something like this has happened to Wong. As the South China Morning Post put it, Wong "has a habit of visiting countries that deny him entry."
image: http://www.prophecynewswatch.com/images/ads/medishare2b.jpg
What makes Wong such a persona non grata? Simply put, he's a Christian who's willing to stand up for freedom--and that makes the Chinese communist government in Beijing very nervous.
To understand why, a short history lesson is in order. When Great Britain ceded Hong Kong back to China in 1997, the agreement stated that the principle dubbed "One Country, Two Systems" would govern relations between Hong Kong and mainland China for the next 50 years.
Under this principle, Hong Kong's domestic affairs would be governed by the systems it inherited from Britain. This included freedom of speech, freedom of religion, and, eventually, free elections.
This kind of autonomy made Hong Kong a free, prosperous, and democratic example for the rest of China to compare its lot to, and the Communist Party knew it. 
Thus, less than 20 years into the agreed-upon 50 years, China began to try and undermine Hong Kong's autonomy by attempting to "pre-screen" candidates in Hong Kong's upcoming elections.
In response, hundreds of thousands of students, in what came to be known as the "Umbrella Movement" because of the use of umbrellas against the tear gas canisters used by police, shut down large parts of the city for the better part of three months.

Are We Living in a Computer?: Tech Tycoons and Transcendence
Since Rene Descartes formulated his famous dictum, "I think, therefore I am," philosophers have been wrestling with the question of how we can know that what we think we know is really real. In the last couple of decades, pop culture has wrestled with that question, as well.

Recall the 1999 movie, "The Matrix," in which a man discovers his whole life has been lived in a virtual prison that simulates the real world. In the movie, he's given a choice between two pills--a red one and a blue one. 

The first will awaken him from the simulation, and the second will lull him back into blissful ignorance. Since then, "choosing the red pill" has become synonymous with throwing off comfortable illusions and confronting reality.
image: http://www.prophecynewswatch.com/images/ads/medishare3b.jpg


But in many ways, the concept of the Matrix has transcended Hollywood. If you can believe it, the idea that the world around us may not be what it appears has become increasingly popular among scientists, philosophers, and even technology tycoons. 

And some of these folks are now actively searching for the "red pill" that will wake us from our collective illusion.
The Independent reports that two anonymous Silicon Valley billionaires are pouring money into a project to break us free from a real life Matrix--if we're living in one, that is. Although the details of this project are unclear, we do know it involves a team of scientists and some of the richest, most influential innovators in America.
This shouldn't surprise us that much. Those who invent cutting edge products and technologies have long embraced some pretty weird ideas. Take, for instance, PayPal co-founder and "transhumanist" Peter Thiel, who hopes to achieve immortality by "uploading" his consciousness into a computer!
Elon Musk, founder of Tesla and SpaceX, thinks we may already be living in a computer. We just don't know it yet. In a recent interview, he placed the odds that our reality is not the ultimate, "base-level reality" at "billions to one." 
In other words, the guy behind today's top-selling electric cars and best-known private space program is almost certain we're trapped in the Matrix!
Bizarrely, even the Bank of America has gotten in on the hype, suggesting in a recent report to clients that the chances we're living in a simulation concocted by highly advanced beings are roughly twenty to fifty percent.

The Great Falling Away - Atheist Pastors Remain In The Pulpit
The famously liberal United Church of Canada may have finally found the limit to its own philosophy of inclusion with atheist Reverend Gretta Vosper. Although Rev. Vosper expressed her disbelief in the God of the Bible in a sermon as early as 2001, it was only in 2013 that she openly proclaimed herself atheist in the pulpit of the West Hill United Church.
The famously liberal United Church of Canada may have finally found the limit to its own philosophy of inclusion with atheist Reverend Gretta Vosper. 

Although Rev. Vosper expressed her disbelief in the God of the Bible in a sermon as early as 2001, it was only in 2013 that she openly proclaimed herself atheist in the pulpit of the West Hill United Church.  

As the church services of West Hill United have continued to change, its membership has steadily declined from 324 members in 2001 to only 147 in 2014, the most recent year for which statistics are available. 
image: http://www.prophecynewswatch.com/images/ads/medishare2b.jpg

Since the West Hill congregation no longer includes Christ in their worship, many now question how Vosper and her core of supporters can remain a part of the Church, despite the United Church's focus on inclusion.

According to the Rev. Don Schweitser, theology professor at St Andrew's College, "It's tough on the United Church because we've created this mantra of inclusiveness and now it's been tested. 

It goes against the grain to tell somebody that you have to leave." Yet common sense tells us that any Christian church that embraces atheism in the pulpit is neither Christian nor does it have a future.

InterVarsity Upholds Christian Teaching: And Many Don't Like It
It shouldn't be news when a Christian organization says it will uphold traditional Christian beliefs. But these days, it is.
Recently on BreakPoint, we told you how Baptist ethicist David Gushee proclaimed there was no more middle ground on LGBT issues. He's right. You either approve of so-called sexually progressive ideas or you don't--and if you don't, you've placed yourself in the bigoted, wrong-side-of-history category.

That's exactly what happened with InterVarsity Christian Fellowship. Earlier this month, IV informed employees that they were expected to align with traditional Christian teaching on marriage and human sexuality. If they couldn't, they were asked to come forward.
TIME magazine reported on the announcement this way. "One of the largest evangelical organizations on college campuses nationwide "has told its 1,300 staff members they will be fired if they personally support gay marriage or otherwise disagree with its newly detailed positions on sexuality starting on November 11." They called it a "theological purge."

But they completely misreported the story.

UN Decision To Deny Jewish History Also A Decision To Deny Christian History
A number of prominent leaders in the US Christian community expressed dismay over UNESCO's approval of a resolution that distorts Jerusalem's religious history. The Temple Mount, play a central role not only to the Jewish faith but also to the Christian faith. This resolution largely ignores and fails to honor this deep and holy connection.
A number of prominent leaders in the US Christian community expressed dismay on Friday over UNESCO's approval yesterday of a resolution that distorts Jerusalem's religious history.

Telling The Algemeiner that Christians were "gravely concerned" by the resolution, David Brog -- the director of Christians United for Israel (CUFI) -- said, "The places under discussion, namely the Temple Mount, play a central role not only to the Jewish faith but also to the Christian faith. This resolution largely ignores and fails to honor this deep and holy connection."

Robert Nicholson -- the head of the Philos Project, a nonprofit group that "seeks to promote positive Christian engagement in the Middle East" -- told The Algemeiner, "UNESCO's decision to deny Jewish history is also a decision to deny Christian history. 
image: http://www.prophecynewswatch.com/images/ads/medishare1b.jpg
If the Jews don't have a legacy on the Temple Mount, neither do Christians. And yet we know that our Messiah Jesus came to the Temple throughout his life to worship and pray to the God of Israel, as a Jew, six centuries before Muhammad was even born."
Nicholson went on to call it "mind-boggling" that "Christian-majority countries like Brazil and Mexico" would back the resolution.

The Poisoning Of A People - Palestinians Celebrate The Murder Of Jews
A Palestinian who carries a knife or rifle and sets out to kill Jews gains the stars of a "martyr" and wins nearly universal Palestinian praise. This is the current mindset in Palestinian society, the fruit of decades of Palestinian incitement and delegitimization of Israel.
The family of Musbah Abu Sbeih say they are "very proud" of what their 40-year-old son did. So are many Palestinians representing all walks of life in Palestinian society. 

Members of his family, including his parents and daughter, have appeared on too may TV stations to keep track of to commend Abu Sbeih. 

They have even gone out onto the streets to hand out sweets in jubilation over the terror attack that he carried out in Jerusalem this week, which resulted in the death of a 60-year-old grandmother and a 29-year-old police officer.
image: http://www.prophecynewswatch.com/images/ads/medishare1b.jpg
Abu Sbeih is now the latest "hero" of many Palestinians, and not only by his family. He is being hailed as a "brave" man and a "hero" because he woke up in the morning, grabbed an M-16 assault rifle and set out to kill as many Jews as possible. His mission was "successful": he managed to shoot and kill two Jews before he himself was eliminated by policemen.

New Obama Executive Order Hints At Devastating Space Event
In the latest Executive Order signed by Barack Obama, the President calls for coordination between various government agencies including the Department of Defense and Department of Homeland security should a major "space weather event" come to pass.
Once considered a fringe conspiracy theory, it appears that the Obama administration is now actively preparing for a massive solar event that could wipe out life as we have come to know it. 

Space weather events such as solar flares, solar energetic particles, and geomagnetic disturbances have long been believed to pose a significant threat to our technologically advanced society with the ability to not only affect global positioning satellites, but on-earth electronics that include the entire domestic (and global) power grid.

Executive Order -- Coordinating Efforts to Prepare the Nation for Space Weather Events
By the authority vested in me as President by the Constitution and the laws of the United States of America, and to prepare the Nation for space weather events, it is hereby ordered as follows:

Section 1. Policy. Space weather events, in the form of solar flares, solar energetic particles, and geomagnetic disturbances, occur regularly, some with measurable effects on critical infrastructure systems and technologies, such as the Global Positioning System (GPS), satellite operations and communication, aviation, and the electrical power grid. Extreme space weather events -- those that could significantly degrade critical infrastructure -- could disable large portions of the electrical power grid, resulting in cascading failures that would affect key services such as water supply, healthcare, and transportation. 

Space weather has the potential to simultaneously affect and disrupt health and safety across entire continents. Successfully preparing for space weather events is an all-of-nation endeavor that requires partnerships across governments, emergency managers, academia, the media, the insurance industry, non-profits, and the private sector.

Though often dismissed as nothing more than fear mongering, the threat of space weather events is not only possible, it is quite probable, as evidenced  by a massive solar flare which narrowly missed earth in 2012.
"The speed of this event was as fast or faster than anything that has been seen in the modern space age," said Baker.

Had it hit Earth, the July 2012 event likely would have created a technological disaster by short-circuiting satellites, power grids, ground communication equipment and even threatening the health of astronauts and aircraft crews.

5 Urgent Warnings From Big Banks That the "Economy Has Gone Suicidal"
While the general population is obsessed with the details of the world's most entertaining and bizarre election in American history, the big banks are gearing up for a deadly serious economic collapse.
The economy has gone suicidal.
It is working against the very people who need its energy to survive. It is collapsing on its own weight, and the weight of literally incalculable levels of toxic debt. And it is going to create the greatest disaster of our time, if the warnings from the world's most powerful bankers are any indication.
While the general population is obsessed with the details of the world's most entertaining and bizarre election in American history, the big banks are gearing up for a deadly serious economic collapse.
Just during the past few weeks, there have been major discussions about stock markets dropping, the insolvency of Europe's biggest investment bank, the mounting debt crisis and a deeper, long-term decline for 'everyday Americans.'

Outrage! UNESCO Resolution Rejects Jewish Connection To Jerusalem
"The theater of the absurd continues at the UN," Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said in a statement. "Today UNESCO adopted its second decision this year denying the Jewish people's connection to the Temple Mount, our holiest site for over three thousand years. What's next? A UNESCO decision denying the connection between peanut butter and jelly? Batman and Robin? Rock and roll?"
Major American Jewish groups and top Israeli politicians reacted with outrage on Thursday after the UN's cultural body approved a resolution that ignores the Jewish people's ties with Jerusalem holy sites.24 countries voted in favor of the UNESCO Executive Board resolution and six -- the US, UK, Germany, Holland, Lithuania and Estonia -- voted against. 26 countries abstained and two countries were missing from the vote.

No Pooh-Poohing Biblical History: The Lachish Latrine
Once again archaeology confirms biblical history. I'll explain the latest find--just bring along your sense of humor.
The late Chuck Colson was known for many things: his role in the Watergate scandal, his subsequent conversion to Christ; his work with prisoners around the world, and his efforts in promoting a Christian worldview.

But to his closest associates, Chuck was also known for his sense of humor. He loved practical jokes, and as odd as this sounds, jokes about bathroom mishaps--the kind of potty humor made famous by humorist Dave Barry.

So for this and many other reasons, I really wish Chuck were around to deliver this particular commentary.
image: http://www.prophecynewswatch.com/images/ads/medishare2b.jpg


You see, archaeologists from the Israel Antiquities Authority, digging in the remains of what was once the biblical city of Tel Lachish, made a startling discovery that confirmed the biblical text in a most startling way: They found an ancient toilet.

To fully appreciate the significance of the find, we need to go back in time to the eighth century before Christ. King Hezekiah, one of only a handful of post-Davidic kings that earns the Bible's seal of approval, initiated series of reforms aimed at eradicating syncretism in Judah.

At the heart of these reform efforts was eliminating what the Bible called "high places" or bamot in Hebrew. These were cultic sites containing an altar, usually located, as the English name suggests, on a hill or a ridge.

While ostensibly dedicated to the worship of YHWH, over time the sites, and the worship that occurred at them, became syncretistic: pagan deities were honored alongside YHWH. Thus we are told that asherim, or "Asherah Poles," cultic objects dedicated to the worship of the Canaanite goddess of fertility, were erected at these sites.

Hezekiah was commended because "He removed the high places, smashed the sacred stones and cut down the Asherah poles."

And that brings me back to the discovery at Tel Lachish. Archaeologists found a "large room that appears to have been a shrine. The room contained two four-horned altars, whose horns had been intentionally damaged." Excavation leader Sa'ar Ganor "believes that the destroyed altars corroborate biblical references to King Hezekiah's reforms: his efforts to centralize worship in Jerusalem and abolish it elsewhere."
image: http://www.prophecynewswatch.com/images/ads/DTF_Course.jpg


As if this weren't exciting enough, Ganor and his team found something else in the room: a "seat carved of stone with a hole in the center." In other words, a toilet.

Ganor believes that this "was unquestionably a form of desecration of this shrine room," and he has ample biblical reason to do so. In 2 Kings 10, we're informed that following the fall of King Ahab, Jehu and his followers "demolished the pillar of Baal, and destroyed the temple of Baal, and made it a latrine to this day."

Apparently, desecration by bathroom renovation was practiced in both kingdoms.

This latest discovery comes on the heels of other discoveries confirming a great deal of what the scriptures tell us about Hezekiah and his reign. And to think that only a few decades ago, many, if not most, scholars doubted that Hezekiah, along with ancestors David and Solomon, ever actually existed. And now they seem to be popping up everywhere.

That should not come as a surprise. The Bible is the best-attested book of antiquity. Nothing else is within the same solar system. All of this is another reminder that the biblical faith is firmly rooted in actual human history and not in some mythological "once upon a time."

That an ancient toilet is the latest among many archaeological finds to affirm the historicity of Scripture--well, all I can say is, I wish Chuck Colson were here.

Russia Prepares For War
Ominous signs continue to emerge out of Russia as media sources in Russia report that state officials and government workers were told to bring back their children studying abroad immediately, even if means cutting their education short and not waiting until the end of the school year.
Ominous signs continue to emerge out of Russia as media sources in Russia report that state officials and government workers were told to bring back their children studying abroad immediately, even if means cutting their education short and not waiting until the end of the school year. 

The reason for the instruction was not clear, but the two suggested possibilities by most analysts: Russia is preparation for war against the West, or President Vladimir Putin is displaying his domination over the country's oligarchs and forcing those with children studying in the US and Europe to bring them home.  

Taken in isolation such actions may not seem that troubling, however mounting tensions between Russia and the United States, as well as other NATO block countries have been a source of concern for months now.
image: http://www.prophecynewswatch.com/images/ads/medishare3b.jpg


Many experts fear that Russia has begun to accelerate to a war footing. From direct warnings to the United States in Syria to thinly veiled threats of invasion in Sweden, Estonia, Lithuania and Norway, Russia is making its intentions clear while at the same time positioning warships, anti-aircraft missiles, nuclear weapons and divisions of its military in preparation for war. 

A treaty agreement with Syria that authorizes an open-ended Russian troop presence passed the Russian Duma on October 7th. The treaty follows both the heaviest Russian bombing of the rebel-held Aleppo thus far in the war and the collapse of a cease-fire backed by both Russia and the United States. 

Last Thursday, just one day before signing the treaty that would allow an indefinite Russian presence at the Khmeimim air base in Syria, Russia warned the US that its air-defense missiles would fire upon any foreign power attempting to fly over Syrian airspace, including US warplanes should they try to interfere in Assad's brutal oppression. 

Russian S-300 and S-400 anti-aircraft missiles now cover Russian troops spread throughout Syria and any US strike on ISIS or the Assad regime runs the risk of either hitting Russian personnel or being downed by Russian air defense, either of which would pull Russia and the US into direct conflict.
 
At a time when the United States is reducing its nuclear arsenal, Russia has announced plans both to modernize and to expand its own nuclear capabilities. Russia's 1,796 currently deployed nuclear warheads represents a 246 warhead breach of the treaty limit (1,550) established in 2011. 

Russia currently leads the United States by 429 warheads and that gap is likely to grow in the near-term with Russia's announced plans to expand nuclear deployment this week. Of particular interest are claims that the Russian short-range SS-25 ballistic missile, a road-mobile nuclear strike vehicle capable of hitting targets across Europe, has been recently deployed despite a 1987 treaty ban.
 
Inside Russia, near St. Petersburg, a series of missile drills with Iskander missile systems has created concern in nearby Finland and Estonia. The military exercises of the Leningrad missile brigade simulate a preemptive missile strike against enemy infrastructure. This follows after a simulated Russian nuclear strike and invasion of an enemy that looked qfuite suspiciously like Sweden last year. 

Neighboring countries have been preparing for Russian invasion for the past several years, but most recently Sweden has followed Norway's example in reinstating conscription, this time of both men and women, in the face of the looming Russian threat. The presence of Iskander-M missiles in Kaliningrad, between Poland and Lithuania, is positioned as a direct threat to NATO countries. 

Attempts by the United States to protect Poland and Romania with anti-missile defenses has been decried by Russian diplomats as a provocation that would render these countries as targets in the event of a Russian strike. The Russian intention to position offensive strike capabilities while bullying its neighbors into weakening their defenses cannot be more transparent. 

Within Russia, in addition to the construction of massive nuclear bunkers in major cities and strategic military sites, the past week saw a national drill involving 200,000 emergency responders and 40 million civilians. 
image: http://www.prophecynewswatch.com/images/ads/DTF_Course.jpg


The 4-day long exercise practiced a national response to a simulated nuclear strike on Russia by the US and represented a civil defense drill unprecedented in its scope. No small feat, in addition to the 40 million civilians and 200,000 emergency personnel, the effort involved an estimated 50,000 pieces of military equipment as well.  

Russian media, in a campaign to incite national fervor against the West, accompanied the national nuclear defense drill with rhetoric blaming nuclear escalation on US "schizophrenics" hungry for war. 

Understanding the possible consequences of a Russian invasion of Europe or open war with the US, Russia is taking steps to prepare its people for a nuclear counter attack, both psychologically and through drilling its citizenry and hardening its infrastructure.

Russian Deputy Defense Minister Nikolai Pankov briefly mentioned this week the possibility of re-establishing military bases in both Vietnam and Cuba, both of which had been closed in 2002 in an effort to scale-back Russian military presence around the world. Also this week, Russia sent additional warships into the Mediterranean to join the fleet already positioned there. 

The most recent warship, the Mirazh missile cruiser, follows after Wednesday's arrival of two more Black Sea Fleet missile corvettes, the Serpukhov and the Zelyony Dol, both of which carry a complement of Kaliber long-range missiles. 

Russian Navy representative Nikolay Voskresensky announced that these would add to the permanent Russian presence that is being used to conduct strikes within Syria and will be ready to respond to any threats. 

With such a series of Russian actions, including military buildup, large-scale aggressive exercises, massive civil defense drills, global expansion and even direct threats to NATO countries, there is little wonder that officials are concerned. 

Tensions have ratcheted higher and the possibility exists for a single bomb or missile to trigger war on a scale that the world hasn't seen for more than half a century. 

One Russian official recently summed up such fears by stating that if a US plane were seen as a threat to Syrian or Russian troops, there would be no time for a red-phone hotline call before it would be shot down by anti-aircraft missiles. That a wider war would inevitably follow is a foregone conclusion.

Two-Thirds Will Be Out Of Cash Almost Immediately If Economic Crisis Hits
If economic conditions remain relatively stable, the fact that so many of us are living on the edge probably won't kill us. But the moment the economy plunges into another 2008-style crisis (or worse), we could be facing a situation where two-thirds of the country is in imminent danger of running out of cash.
Did you know that almost 70 percent of the U.S. population is essentially living paycheck to paycheck?  

As you will see below, a brand new survey has found that 69 percent of all Americans have less than $1,000 in savings.  Of course one of the primary reasons for this is that most of us are absolutely drowning in debt.  

In fact, the total amount of household debt in the United States now exceeds 12 trillion dollars.  So many Americans are so busy just trying to pay off their existing debts that they can't even think about saving anything for the future.

Christianity Is Approaching "Lights Out" In Germany
The fall of German Christianity leaves an emptiness that seems likely to be filled by a more multicultural and Islamic society. Germany today houses Europe's largest Muslim community.
"Contemporary historians ... right now, have failed to find a single historical example of a society that became secularised and maintained its birth rate over subsequent centuries," the former UK chief Rabbi, Jonathan Sacks, recently argued.
"Falling fertility has coincided so closely with massive secularization that we must at least ask whether the two phenomena are related, even if not in a neat one-to-one relationship", the scholar Philip Jenkins also said.
This is also true apparently for Germany.
image: http://www.prophecynewswatch.com/images/ads/medishare1b.jpg
Germans have been leaving the Catholic Church in droves. In 2015, 181,925 Germans formally chose apostasy. By comparison, only 2,685 people have converted to Catholicism. The number of baby baptisms has also decreased by one third, from 260,000 baptized in 1995 to 167,000 in 2015. 
The situation is even more dismal for weddings. Twenty years ago, 86,456 couples married in a church. Last year, the number dropped by almost half: in a nation of 80 million people, only 44,298 couples sworn eternal love in a church. The proportion of people who attend church has declined from 18.6% in 1995 to 10.4% in 2015.
This trend is called "the New Atheism" ("der neue Atheismus"). According to Detlef Pollack, a professor of religious sociology at the University of Münster, only 4% of east German Protestants regularly attend church today, compared to 15% in the 1950s. A recent study conducted by University of Chicago professor Tom W. Smith revealed that citizens of the former German Democratic Republic have, by far, "the world's highest rate of atheism."

Israel's New Allies: Hispanic Evangelicals
When Hispanic-American pastors from around the country met in the nation's capital last week, the main issue on their agenda was not immigration or health care--it was Israel..
The pastors represented evangelical congregations from Connecticut to Oklahoma. This rapidly-growing portion of the U.S. Latino electorate could have a significant impact on American policy toward Israel in the years ahead.
The mobilization in Washington was the work of the Hispanic Israel Leadership Coalition (HILC), an arm of the National Hispanic Christian Leadership Conference, which represents 40,118 Hispanic evangelical congregations across the country.
image: http://www.prophecynewswatch.com/images/ads/medishare2b.jpg
HILC president Pastor Mario Bramnick told JNS.org the purpose of the all-day gathering was to "pray together, to consult with our Israeli and Jewish friends, and to strategize practical ways to help the Jewish state." 
An estimated 160 pastors took part in a morning session Oct. 5 at the Israeli Embassy, where they met privately with Israel's Ambassador to the United States Ron Dermer.

Report: Obama Administration 'Manufacturing Crisis' With Israel
With its eyes on the potential launch of an Israeli-Palestinian peace initiative after next month's presidential election, the Obama administration is "manufacturing a crisis" over settlement construction.
to exert diplomatic pressure on the Jewish state, The Weekly Standard reported on Sunday, citing sources in Congress and the American Jewish community.
Last week, the administration raised many eyebrows with its unusually strident criticism of Israel's settlement policies following the approval of dozens of new homes in the West Bank. 
One congressional source told The Weekly Standard that the administration had been "waiting for an opening" to hit hard against Israel, and an official with an American-Jewish organization was quoted as saying the administration "wants to be able to say the Israelis forced them to act."
image: http://www.prophecynewswatch.com/images/ads/medishare2b.jpg
The vociferous anti-settlement rhetoric used by White House and State Department spokespersons was shortly followed by the publication of a New York Times editorial board op-ed calling on the administration to back a UN Security Council resolution that would outline the parameters of a two-state solution.

Putin's Puritan Piety: The Ideological War Against The West
The first Cold War was a clash between Western democracy and the Soviet dictatorship of the proletariat. The new Cold War is a one between Western liberalism and Russian conservatism.
During the Cold War, American conservatives used to label the Soviet Union "the godless nation" on the verge of collapse because it had purged religion from the Russian society. 
Two decades later, the Kremlin is occupied by a former officer of the KGB, secretly baptized, who launches the same accusation of atheism at the United States and the West.
image: http://www.prophecynewswatch.com/images/ads/medishare2b.jpg
Welcome to "Putin's covert war on Western decadence", as The Spectator defined it:
"Putin's Russia is fast becoming a very puritan place. Ever since returning to the presidency in 2012, Putin has pursued an increasingly religious-conservative ideology both at home and abroad, defining Russia as a moral fortress against sexual licence and decadence, porn and gay rights".
Recently, Russian officials censored porn websites. When the largest pornography site on the internet, PornHub, offered the Russia's official communications and media watchdog a premium account in exchange for lifting the ban, Russian officials replied: "Sorry, we are not in the market and the demography is not a commodity."

Next Step In Global Arms Race: Nuclear Drone Warfare
There has been an ongoing global drone arms race, as nation after nation invests in autonomous technology to keep up with the latest developments from their rivals. The U.S. has announced that this path will lead toward a reality where ALL nations will have armed drones within 10 years.
This arms race has naturally spurred new technology to counter what is expected from adversaries such as laser-equipped autonomous drones, which are expected to arrive within two years. From there, anti-drone jamming technology has been introduced via the spectrum of electronic warfare. And even drone invisibility cloaks are rapidly approaching reality.
All of this development has been a boon for defense contractors who are excited by the prospect that the battlefield drone market is set to at least double by the year 2024.

A Suicidal Ballot in Colorado: Will the Right to Die Become a Duty to Die?
Coloradans will vote on an assisted suicide measure this November. Those who vote "Yes" are signing their own death warrants.
In a recent article at National Review Online, George Weigel tells a chilling story about just how far the culture of death has advanced in some parts of the West.
Three elderly parishioners at the Canadian church he attends during the summer were diagnosed with cancer. Now, that's bad enough. But what followed was even worse. The first thing they were asked after being told their diagnosis was, "Do you wish to be euthanized?"
While this story should upset us, it shouldn't shock us. Despite all the promises made by supporters of physician-assisted suicide, the so-called "safeguards" against pressuring vulnerable people to end their lives "have proved to be inadequate and have often been watered down or eliminated over time."
image: http://www.prophecynewswatch.com/images/ads/medishare2b.jpg
Or, as Belgian law professor Étienne Montero observed, "What is presented at first as a right [to die] is going to become a kind of obligation."
Thus, in fourteen years Belgium went from euthanizing terminally-ill adults, to killing chronically-ill adults, to offing adults who had lost their will to live, to finally disposing of children.

Is Russia Preparing For A Nuclear War With The United States?
In Russia there is talk that war with the United States is inevitable, and they are feverishly preparing to win such a war when it happens.
Thanks to tensions over Ukraine, Syria and the price of oil, U.S. relations with Russia are the worst that they have been since at least the end of the Cold War. 


In fact, one false move could result in U.S. and Russian forces shooting at each other in Syria as you will see below. The Russians have worked incredibly hard to upgrade and modernize their military in recent years, but meanwhile the U.S. military is being transformed into a radically politically-correct social experiment by the Obama administration. 
image: http://www.prophecynewswatch.com/images/ads/medishare1b.jpg
Most Americans simply assume that we will never fight a war with Russia, and that if for some reason we did that we would win easily. Unfortunately, things have changed dramatically over the past decade, and the truth is that the Russians now have the upper hand.


Most Americans are accustomed to thinking that we have such an overwhelming strategic nuclear arsenal that nobody would ever dare mess with us. At one time that was true, but now it isn't. 


In fact, the size of the U.S. strategic nuclear arsenal has been reduced by more than 95 percent since the end of the Cold War, and now the Russians actually have more deployed nuclear warheads than we do. The following comes from the Daily Beast...


While the U.S. military has been steadily cutting the number of nukes it loads on submarines and bombers and in missile silos, Russian forces have recently been adding more.


Seemingly more worrying for the United States, Russia's 1,796 deployed warheads exceed--by a whopping 246 weapons--the cap of 1,550 deployed nuclear weapons that Moscow and Washington agreed to as part of the 2011 New Strategic Arms Reduction Treaty.


The United States, meanwhile, is already well below the New START cap. America's missile submarines, nuclear-capable heavy bombers, and land-based intercontinental ballistic missiles are armed with just 1,367 warheads, the State Department says.


But it isn't just the number of warheads that we need to be concerned about. The Russians have developed a brand new intercontinental ballistic missile known as "the Sarmat" that is far more advanced than anything the U.S. currently has deployed...


The Sarmat will weigh at least 100-tons and carry a 10-ton payload. That means the missile could carry as many as 15 independently targeted thermo-nuclear warheads. It has a range of at least 6,000 miles. Once it is operational, it will be the largest ICBM ever built.


Like other modern Russian ICBMs such as the Yars, Topol-M and the Bulava, the Sarmat is being designed specifically to overcome ballistic missile defenses using a combination of decoys, a host of countermeasures and sheer speed. It might also be equipped with maneuvering warheads--which would make it much more difficult to intercept.


We have no way to stop the Sarmat, so once it is launched we are defenseless against it.


And each missile carries 15 independently targeted warheads, and so that means that for each missile that goes up, 15 warheads come down. Every one of those warheads can be directed to a different city, and so one Sarmat missile could essentially destroy an area approximately the size of Texas.


Meanwhile, the U.S. military continues to use hopelessly outdated technology. 60 Minutes has shown that many of our nuclear silos are still using rotary phones and the kind of 8-inch floppy disks that you can hold in your hand and actually flop around. And the Obama administration plans to keep Minuteman intercontinental ballistic missiles that were originally deployed in the 1960s and 1970s in service until 2030.


Of even greater concern than the Sarmat intercontinental ballistic missile are the "black hole submarines" that Russia has developed. These stealth submarines are so quiet and so invisible that they can come right up to our coastlines without us even knowing that they are there.


So someday a fleet of Russian submarines may suddenly surface just off both coasts, launch a barrage of nuclear missiles at us, and we would only have moments to try to decide what to do before our cities, our nuclear forces and our leadership started getting hit by nukes.


And guess what? The Russians have now developed even newer submarines that are even quieter and stealthier than the subs that the U.S. Navy referred to as "black holes"...


"The stealth capabilities of Russia's new Lada-class diesel-electric submarines far exceed those of their predecessors, Admiraty Shipyard's CEO Alexander Buzakov told the Russian press.


"According to Buzakov, the new vessels are even stealthier than Russian Kilo-class submarines, thought to be one of the quietest diesel-electric submarine classes in the world and dubbed "black holes" for their ability to "disappear" from sonars.


"The new submarines are able to maintain such a low profile thanks to a clever implementation of a next-generation anti-reflective acoustic coating and a new improved hydro-acoustic system, Buzakov said.


In a surprise attack scenario, the U.S. may be able to get some missiles off at the Russians, but the Russians also have the most advanced anti-ballistic missile systems in the entire world. In fact, it is believed that the S-500 system will be able to intercept any of our missiles before they even get to Russia. The following info about the S-500 comes from military-today.com...


The S-500 is not an upgrade of the S-400, but a new design. It uses a lot of new technology and is superior to the S-400. It was designed to intercept ballistic missiles. It is planned to have a range of 500-600 km and hit targets at altitudes as high as 40 km. 


Some sources claim that this system is capable of tracking 5-20 ballistic targets and intercepting up to 5-10 ballistic targets simultaneously. It can defeat ballistic missiles traveling at 5-7 kilometers per second. It has been reported that this air defense system can also target low orbital satellites. It is planned that the S-500 will shield Moscow and the regions around it. 


It will replace the current A-135 anti-ballistic missile system. The S-500 missiles will be used only against the most important targets, such as intercontinental ballistic missiles, AWACS and jamming aircraft.


And you may have heard that the Russians have been deploying S-300 and S-400 missile systems to Syria. After hearing reports that the Obama administration may conduct direct strikes against Syrian military positions, the Russians responded by reminding the U.S. that the S-300 and S-400 systems will be used against any targets that attack areas controlled by the Syrian government. The following comes from RT...


Russia's Defense Ministry has cautioned the US-led coalition of carrying out airstrikes on Syrian army positions, adding in Syria there are numerous S-300 and S-400 air defense systems up and running.


Russia currently has S-400 and S-300 air-defense systems deployed to protect its troops stationed at the Tartus naval supply base and the Khmeimim airbase. The radius of the weapons reach may be "a surprise" to all unidentified flying objects, Russian Defense Ministry spokesperson General Igor Konashenkov said.


According to the Russian Defense Ministry, any airstrike or missile hitting targets in territory controlled by the Syrian government would put Russian personnel in danger.


And the official Russian embassy account on Twitter has issued an ominous warning as well...


All jokes aside, #Russia will take every defensive measure necessary to protect its personnel stationed in #Syria from terrorist threat.


So what would happen if U.S. military aircraft started getting shot down by the Russians in Syria?


I don't know the answer to that question, and let's hope that we don't find out.


Another thing that has raised a lot of eyebrows is a massive "civil defense drill" in Russia that just concluded that involved 40 million people. Many believe that the primary purpose of this drill was to prepare the population for a nuclear war. The following comes from a major British news source...


The huge four-day "civil defence" drill has set alarm bells ringing in Washington and London, with tensions already high over disagreements in Syria.


Following a breakdown in communication between the USA and Russia, the Kremlin has now organised the huge emergency practice drill - either as a show of force or something more sinister.


The drill will prepare Russian citizens for "large natural and man-made disasters", according to the country's Ministery for Civil Defence, Emergencies and Elimination of Consequences of Natural Disaster.


The ministry revealed 40 million civilians, 200,000 emergency rescuers and 50,000 units of equipment are involved in the war game, which is running from October 4 to October 7.
image: http://www.prophecynewswatch.com/images/ads/DTF_Course.jpg




Most Americans don't realize this, but there are hundreds and hundreds of nuclear bomb shelters in Moscow alone. If a nuclear war were to start, Russian citizens are going to have somewhere to go.


Meanwhile, here in the United States no provision has been made for the general population. When the missiles start falling the only thing that will be left for us to do will be to kiss ourselves goodbye.


It seems like our relationship with Russia gets worse with each passing week. This week, the Obama administration officially accused the Russians of hacking into the DNC and interfering in our elections...


After months of speculation whether the US would officially accuse Russia of being responsible for various intrusions and hacks, primarily involving the Democratic party, moments ago we finally got the long-anticipated confirmation when the US named Russia as the actor behind the hacking attempts on political organizations and, more importantly, state election systems and accused Putin of carrying out a wide-ranging campaign to interfere with the 2016 elections, including by hacking the computers of the Democratic National Committee and other political officials.


In a statement, the US "intelligence community" said that it is "confident" that the Russian government "directed the recent compromises of emails from US persons and institutions, including from US political organisations", the Department of Homeland Security and Director of National Intelligence on Election Security said in a joint statement.


The US added that "these thefts and disclosures are intended to interfere with the US election process".


Over in Russia, they are very upset with us as well.


The Russians believe that the U.S. was responsible for the overthrow of the democratically-elected government in Ukraine, they believe that the U.S. helped start the civil war in Syria while Hillary Clinton was Secretary of State (and this is true), and they believe that the U.S. pushed the price of oil way down in order to hurt the Russian economy.


And it isn't just the Russian leadership that is very angry with the United States. According to Gallup, American leadership has a 1 percent approval rating in Russia at this point.


If you listen to Russian media, there is constant talk of war. The Russians consider the U.S. to be the great force for evil in the world, and they consider themselves to be the great force for good in the world. 


And there seems to be this overwhelming belief that an ultimate confrontation between good and evil is inevitable. Just consider the following excerpt from an article authored by leading Russian thinker Alexander Dugin entitled "Third World War Has Never Been So Close"...


The globalist US leadership obviously cannot rule the whole world and, what's more, the threat posed by Trump puts their control over America itself into question. Now, while the puppet Barack Obama is still in office and the globalist candidate Hillary Clinton is falling apart in front of American voters' very eyes, is the last chance to start a war. 


This would allow them to postpone elections or force Trump, if he were to win, to begin his presidency in catastrophic conditions. Thus, the US neoconservatives and globalists need war. And fast, before it's too late. If Trump gets into the White House when there will be peace, then there will be no such war, at least for the foreseeable future. And this would spell the end of the omnipotence of the maniacal globalist elites.


Thus, everything at this point is very, very serious. NATO's ideologues and the US globalists falling into the abyss need war right now - before the American elections. War against us. Not so much for victory, but for the process itself. This is the only way for them to prolong their dominance and divert the attention of Americans and the whole world from their endless series of failures and crimes. 


The globalists' game has been revealed. Soon enough, they'll have to step down from power and appear before court. Only war can save their situation.


But what about us? We don't need war. Not now, now tomorrow, never. Never in history have we needed war. But we have constantly fought and, in fact, we have almost never lost. The cost entailed terrible losses and colossal efforts, but we won. And we will always win. If this were not so, then today we wouldn't have such an enormous country free from foreign control.
Sadly, most ordinary Americans aren't paying attention to any of this.
Most ordinary Americans still think that the Russians are "our friends" and that there is not even the slightest possibility that we could go to war with them.


Let us certainly hope that war with Russia does not happen any time soon, because there is a very good chance that we would not wind up on the winning side.

"Danger Zone" - Short Window Of Opportunity For Obama To Act Against Israel
At this moment there is a tremendous amount of international pressure on Barack Obama to support a resolution dividing the land of Israel. The U.S. veto power on the UN Security Council is the only thing standing in the way.
While most Americans are focused on the endless circus surrounding Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton, a drama of earth-shattering importance is playing out behind the scenes. 
Most people seem to assume that we don't have to be concerned about Barack Obama anymore because his second term is scheduled to end in a few months, but the truth is that an absolutely critical decision is in his hands right now. 


Both Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton have said that they will not support a proposed UN Security Council resolution that would formally establish a Palestinian state, that would set the parameters for the new state, and that would grant them East Jerusalem as their capital. 
image: http://www.prophecynewswatch.com/images/ads/medishare1b.jpg
So at this moment there is a tremendous amount of international pressure on Barack Obama to support such a resolution, because the U.S. veto power on the UN Security Council is the only thing standing in the way of formally dividing the land of Israel. 


I wrote about this in August, in September, and now I am writing about it again in October. If Obama is going to do this, it needs to happen by January 20th, 2017, and so for the next few months we are officially in "the danger zone".


On Thursday, the New York Times editorial board added their voice to the growing chorus of those calling for a "parameters resolution" in a piece entitled "At the Boiling Point With Israel"...

Americans Fail Theology 101: The Wages of Doctrinal Docility
Could you pass a basic theology quiz? Several thousand Americans just tried. Uh-oh. Too bad God doesn't grade on a curve.
One thing is certain: Americans love the Bible. A recent report from The American Bible Society and Barna Group finds that two-thirds of the nation believe the Bible contains "everything a person needs to know in order to live a meaningful life." 


And a vast majority of folks in this country still consider themselves Christians. But just how deep does their Christianity run?
Not very, according to the results of a survey released late last month by LifeWay Research. The survey, commissioned by Ligonier Ministries, asked 3,000 participants a set of 47 questions about foundational Christian beliefs.
Many of the answers revealed a mishmash of heresy and confusion about Christianity's most basic doctrines.


Seventy percent of Americans agree there's only one true God--one in essence, three in person: Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Yet almost the same number believe God accepts the worship of all other religions, even those that deny the Trinity or worship other deities. 


Sixty-one percent correctly say Jesus is both human and divine, but half think that He's also "the first and greatest being created by God," rather than existing eternally, as Scripture and the ancient creeds of the faith teach.
More bizarre contradictions emerged: Over sixty percent of Americans say that God, Who cannot err, is the Author of the Bible. Yet fewer than half are willing to affirm that the Bible God wrote is "one hundred percent accurate in all it teaches."

The Dangers Of Demanding The Quick Creation Of A Palestinian State
Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas suffered chest pains this week and was rushed to a hospital in Ramallah. The episode was an important reminder of the dangers and risks Israel will face if it heeds demands for the quick creation of a Palestinian state.
Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas suffered chest pains this week and was rushed to a hospital in Ramallah. The episode was an important reminder of the dangers and risks Israel will face if it heeds demands for the quick creation of a Palestinian state.
 
In recent weeks, the S. Daniel Abraham Center has been sponsoring full-page ads in The New York Times calling for a Palestinian state. The Obama administration this week issued an overheated condemnation of Israel for approving the construction of a handful of houses for Jews, because that construction might interfere with the emergence of a Palestinian state. 


And there have been reports that the United Nations, perhaps with the support of President Obama, will soon issue some new Palestinian statehood resolution.
 
image: http://www.prophecynewswatch.com/images/ads/medishare1b.jpg


Abbas is 81-years-old. His recent heart episode illustrated the fragility of his health. And, at his age, if it's not his heart, it will soon be something else. One of these days, and it won't be long, he will no longer be physically able to govern the Palestinian Authority (PA).
 
So, let's imagine for a moment if Israel were to listen to Obama, the U.N. and S. Daniel Abraham and permit the creation of a fully sovereign Palestinian state. And then imagine if, shortly after signing a statehood agreement with Israel, Abbas is incapacitated. What would follow?
There are, I think, two possibilities.
The most likely scenario is that the terror group Hamas would take over. It has the troops and weapons needed for a coup. They already defeated Abbas's Fatah forces and took over Gaza nine years ago. 


And Hamas has widespread support among ordinary Palestinians judging from the results of the few elections that Abbas had permitted over the years.
So Hamas, which openly advocates the annihilation of Israel and the genocide of Israel's 6.4 million Jews, would be in control of a full-fledged state with borders straddling Jerusalem and Tel Aviv.

The Noose Is Tightening Quickly On The Global Economy
The investment world has an embarrassingly short attention span. But frankly, it is a necessity. If daytraders, hedge funds and other horses in the carousel actually had to look beyond the next week of market activity or study back on market history in comparison to today, then they would not be able to retain their blind optimism, which is exactly what is necessary for them to continue functioning.
If they were all to examine the global financial situation with any honesty, the entire facade would collapse tomorrow.
At bottom, it is not central bank stimulus and intervention alone that drives equities and bond markets; it is the naive faith and willful ignorance of average market participants. There is a problem with this kind of economic model, however. Reality is never kept in check indefinitely.  Fiscal truths will be exposed, one way or another.

How does one know when this full spectrum shift in awareness will occur? Well, there's no science that can help us with that. While basic economics is subject to the forces of supply, demand and mathematical inevitability, it is also subject to human psychology, which is another matter entirely.

Do Christians Know Their Doctrine?
How well does the average American understand basic Christian doctrine? LifeWay Research and Ligonier Ministries decided to find out and have just published the results of a second large-scale survey conducted of 3,000 American adults who were presented with 47 questions on basic Christian doctrine.
In the previous study, respondents were left free to self-identify as evangelicals but in the most recent survey, the answers to several key questions were used to identify Christians as evangelical by their beliefs. 
image: http://www.prophecynewswatch.com/images/ads/shofarsept242016.jpg
Of the 3,000 total adults surveyed, 586 individuals provided statements that identified them as evangelicals. Allowing a comparison to the previous survey in which individuals self-identified, the result was surprisingly similar in most regards.
For purposes of the survey, an evangelical Christian is someone who believes that the Bible is the highest authority, the spreading the Gospel is important, that Christ's sacrifice on the cross is the only way to atone for our sins and that belief in Jesus Christ is the only means of salvation. 
The research extracted from the full forty-seven questions shows a wide range of differences within Christian orthodoxy, either in the form of differing belief or admitted confusion over specific points of doctrine.

Sharia Remains Powerful Force In Muslim World
A survey conducted by The Polling Company for the Center for Security Policy found that a majority of those surveyed (51%) agreed that "Muslims in America should have the choice of being governed according to Sharia."
Indications are that virtually everywhere, Sharia adherents are growing in number.  In addition, most expect their secular or Christian host nations not only to show deference to their stricter version of Islam but to comply with it in the suburbs that they dominate.
That may sound preposterous but it's happening -- even with governmental support in certain secular or supposedly Christian nations that are bending over backward not to appear Islamophobic. Never mind that respect for non-Islamic faiths is non-existent anywhere that Sharia law is enforced.
As Clare Byrne for afp.com recently wrote, around one in four French Muslims (mostly young people) supports an ultra-conservative form of Islam, including the wearing of the full-face veil, but the vast majority accepts France's strict secular laws.
image: http://www.prophecynewswatch.com/images/ads/shofarsept242016.jpg
This is according to a recent study in France, which has Western Europe's biggest Muslim population. The Ifop survey, carried out for a major study of French Muslims by Institut Montaigne, a liberal think-tank, showed that the vast majority of people who identify as Muslim accept curbs on religion in public.

Europe's "Good Terrorists": Because They Might Destroy Israel?
The European Court of Justice (EJC) is sending a message to Hamas that Europeans see no problem with Hamas's desire to destroy Israel and continue to launch terrorist attacks against Jews. This message also undermines those Palestinians who still believe in a peace with Israel.
Once again, the Europeans seem to be in Alice's Wonderland when they consider Palestinian affairs in particular and the Middle East in general. The renewed attempt by the European Union to remove the Palestinian Islamist movement Hamas from its terrorism list is a case in point.
Recently, an advisor to the European Court of Justice (ECJ) recommended that Hamas be removed from the EU's terrorism blacklist. In 2014, the EU's second-highest court ruled that Hamas should be taken off the list on "technical" grounds. 
It argued that Hamas's listing was not based on evidence, but on "factual imputations derived from the press and the internet."
image: http://www.prophecynewswatch.com/images/ads/shofarsept242016.jpg
However, the European Council then appealed this judgement, arguing that Hamas should remain on the terrorism blacklist, citing a 2001 decision by the UK and the US that designated both Hamas and the Tamil Tigers as terrorist groups. 
But the recent opinion by the ECJ advisor dismisses this argument. "The council cannot rely on facts and evidence found in press articles and information from the internet," Advocate General Eleanor Sharpton said. She explained that the council could not rely on terrorist listings by countries (the UK and US) outside the EU.
This latest highly dangerous European attempt to strike Hamas from the terrorism blacklist will, as the EU knows perfectly well, only serve further to embolden the Islamist movement to replace Israel with an Islamic empire.

Sanhedrin Rules Prophesied Return Of Jews To Israel Has Been Fulfilled!
The Jewish people are about to restore and commemorate an ordinance that has been dormant for about 2000 years - almost as far back as the days when Jesus Christ walked the earth.
The Jewish people are about to restore and commemorate an ordinance that has been dormant for about 2000 years - almost as far back as the days when Jesus Christ walked the earth. This New Year's celebration, or Rosh HaShanah, will include the recitation of the Jubilee year-counting mitzvah or Biblical commandment.
In attempting to elucidate the importance of this simple ceremony, Adam Eliyahu Berkowitz of Breaking Israel News quoted the following scripture: "And ye shall hallow the fiftieth year, and proclaim liberty throughout all the land unto all the inhabitants thereof: it shall be a Jubilee unto you" (Leviticus 25:10; The Israel Bible).
Berkowitz explained that counting the Jubilee is a simple mitzvah, reciting just a few lines, but performing this mitzvah is a declaration that the prophesied return of the Jews to Israel has been fulfilled, thereby establishing a basis for the rebuilding of the Jewish Temple.
image: http://www.prophecynewswatch.com/images/ads/shofarsept242016.jpg
Unbeknownst to all but a few witnesses, Berkowitz further clarified that as Rosh HaShanah ended eleven months ago, the nascent Sanhedrin concluded months of deliberation by ruling that certain conditions had been met requiring the Nation of Israel to begin counting the Jubilee cycle. Rabbi Avraham Dov Ben Shor recited the blessing and the 49-year cycle began again.
When Rosh HaShanah - the Jewish New Year - ends on the evening of Tuesday 4th October, it will be time for Jews to count the second year of the Jubilee cycle. The blessing and the count are as follows:

Palestinian Murderers And Their Western Enablers
The sport of murdering Jews does not stop. On June 30, at dawn, in Kiryat Arba, a young Arab broke through a window, and stabbed a 13-year-old American-Israeli girl, Hallel Yaffa Ariel, to death.
The young Arab who stabbed Hallel Yaffa Ariel was shot dead just after the assault. His mother said she was proud of her son. The Palestinian Authority (PA) said he was a hero and a "martyr."
This year alone, 24 Israeli Jews were murdered, many gruesomely. Every time one of the murderers was shot, his family declared how proud they were, and the Palestinian Authority celebrated him. New murderers are preparing new attacks.
image: http://www.prophecynewswatch.com/images/ads/shofarsept242016.jpg
What sort of society is it where parents say they how proud they are that their children are murderers? And what sort of leadership is it that celebrates killers?
Further, what sort of Western journalists and "human rights" groups are those that fail to voice their outrage at the murder of a sleeping 13-year-old girl?
These journalists and human rights groups voice their outrage at people killed in European soccer stadiums, musical theaters and editorial rooms, but never, it seems, for Israeli Jews killed over so many years.
Why also is it that they never speak of the moral depravity of the Palestinian Authority?

The Right/Left Divide Between Israeli And American Jews
There is no doubt that Jewish communities in the United States and Israel hold an affinity for each other. This unique form of national bond crosses political and geographical boundaries and links the two populations. Yet despite the friendliness of the two communities, Israeli Jews tend to be more conservative while their American counterparts favor the liberal side of the spectrum
.There is no doubt that Jewish communities in the United States and Israel hold an affinity for each other. This unique form of national bond crosses political and geographical boundaries and links the two populations. 
In a striking demographic parity, survey data show that 43% of American Jews have visited Israel and approximately the same portion of Israeli Jews has visited the United States. 
Yet despite the friendliness of the two communities, Israeli Jews tend to be more conservative while their American counterparts favor the liberal side of the spectrum. A recent survey conducted by the Pew Research Center and headed by Neha Sahgal examines these divided beliefs.
image: http://www.prophecynewswatch.com/images/ads/shofarsept242016.jpg
This division can be seen clearly in their support of Democratic candidates over Republicans in American politics, despite the Republican party's history as the party with stronger religious ties and its steadfast pro-Israel stance.

LGBT Is Not A Color: Stop Hijacking Civil Rights
Are sexual orientation and gender identity the same as race? That message is being snuck in all over the place.
I just saw a commercial during a football game that inspired me, and then irked me. A young black girl is shown growing up in the Civil Rights era, watching the achievements of African American athletes, political activists, and religious leaders. 
Believing she can become anything if she sets her mind to it, she fights for acceptance in financial firms, eventually graduates with an MBA, and becomes a Wall Street executive. "You may trod me in the very dirt," she says, "but still, like dust, I rise."
image: http://www.prophecynewswatch.com/images/ads/shofarsept242016.jpg
It's a great message. But halfway through this ad for the University of Phoenix, alumna Gail Marquis is shown marching hand-in-hand with LGBT activists and waving a rainbow flag. The implication is crystal clear: The fight of African-Americans for equal rights is the same one LGBT Americans are fighting today.
Unbelievably, this conflation between skin color and sexual orientation surfaced during the recent unrest in Charlotte, North Carolina. In an interview with historian Brenda Tindal, Public Radio International's John Hockenberry suggested that protesters and rioters who took to the street following the police shooting of Lamont Scott were actually angry about--get this--the new transgender bathroom law! Are you kidding me?

Deutsche Bank Collapse: The Most Important Bank In Europe On The Brink
The largest and most important bank in the largest and most important economy in Europe is imploding right in front of our eyes. Deutsche Bank is the 11th biggest bank on the entire planet, and due to the enormous exposure to derivatives that it has, it has been called "the world's most dangerous bank".
Over the past year, I have repeatedly warned that Deutsche Bank is heading for disaster and is a likely candidate to be "the next Lehman Brothers".  
On September 16th, the Wall Street Journal reported that the U.S. Department of Justice wanted 14 billion dollars from Deutsche Bank to settle a case related to the mis-handling of mortgage-backed securities during the last financial crisis.

Double Standards For Aleppo And Gaza
The next time open conflict between Israel and Hamas breaks out, will the parameters of judgment have changed as a result of the carnage in Aleppo and other parts of Syria? Or will Israel continue to be held to a standard of behavior unlike any other military in the world?
Make no mistake, the carnage taking place in Aleppo right now is a disgrace to the international community.
The Syrian government and Russian-backed forces are reportedly using chemical weapons, barrel bombs and increasingly powerful explosives to target innocent men, women and children. 
While rebel fighters have undoubtedly embedded themselves in the city in fortified positions, it appears that the civilian population is bearing the brunt of the conflict.
image: http://www.prophecynewswatch.com/images/ads/shofarsept242016.jpg
While there has been some condemnation from the UN, where are the protests on the streets of European capitals and where is the media frenzy about this disgrace?
Had Israel been involved, or had the IDF aimed one solitary munition at Aleppo, I think the response would be much different.

The Freedom Two-fer: An Attack on Religion and Speech
Is the writing on the wall for religious freedom in this country? Just ask two Arizona calligraphers.
Joanna Duka and Breanna Koski met at a Starbucks café in north Phoenix in January 2015. Both were Christians, and both were artists. 
They decided to go into business together, combining their love for Jesus with their love for making beautiful things. Soon they launched Brush & Nib Studio, a for-profit art business that sells hand-drawn invitations and paintings.

Preparing For Disaster - Elites Go Underground With Luxury Bunkers
It may well be that the end of the world is nigh. But as the masses panic, riot, fight or line up for meager handouts, many of the elite will still be living the high life - albeit underground. And there must be a reason why they are getting so prepared.
via Hollywood Reporter:
Given the increased frequency of terrorist bombings and mass shootings and an under-lying sense of havoc fed by divisive election politics, it's no surprise that home security is going over the top and hitting luxurious new heights. 
Or, rather, new lows, as the average depth of a new breed of safe haven that occupies thousands of square feet is 10 feet under or more. Those who can afford to pull out all the stops for so-called self-preservation are doing so ...

Nyet to Religious Freedom: Putin's Russia Cracks Down
"Papers, please!" It's a chilling expression you hear a lot in World War II movies. But it's also something you might hear if you hold a Bible study in Moscow.
We all know about the dire circumstances faced by Christians in the Islamic world. Even the White House has finally called what's happening to Christians in Iraq and Syria "genocide."
there's another place where religious freedom is under assault: Russia.
This is a surprise to some. After all, post-Soviet Russia takes pride in its Christian heritage. Its president, Vladimir Putin, has positioned himself as a champion of Russian Orthodoxy.

France: The Ticking Time Bomb of Islamization
A new study shows one out of every two young French Muslims is a Salafist of the most radical type, even if he does not belong to a mosque.
Recently, two important studies about French Muslims were released in France. The first one, optimistically entitled, "A French Islam is Possible," was published under the auspices of Institut Montaigne, an independent French think tank.
The second study, entitled, "Work, the Company and the Religious Question," is the fourth annual joint study between the Randstad Institute (a recruiting company) and the Observatory of Religious Experience at Work (Observatoire du fait religieux en entreprise, OFRE), a research company.
Both studies, filling a huge knowledge-deficit on religious and ethnic demography, were widely reported in the media. France is a country well-equipped with demographers, scholars, professors and research institutes, but any official data or statistics based on race, origin or religion are prohibited by law.

State Of The Church In America
In a recent series of articles for Christianity Today, former LifeWay Research head Ed Stetzer confirms the dire news: Christianity is on the decline, Americans have given up on God, and the "Nones"--those who have no religious ties--are on the rise.
ust how healthy is the Christian Church in America today? Is it strong and vibrant, well on its way to becoming a 'glorious church, without spot or wrinkle'? Or this there more reason to believe that Christianity is rapidly regressing spiritually and that Americans are increasingly turning their backs on God?
In a recent series of articles for Christianity Today, former LifeWay Research head Ed Stetzer confirms the dire news: Christianity is on the decline, Americans have given up on God, and the "Nones"--those who have no religious ties--are on the rise. 
These conclusions have been drawn from recent surveys and other polls. As Stetzer emphasizes, the "facts are our friends" and the numbers don't lie. Research data instead gives us a realistic picture of our health--rather than the overly optimistic view we'd prefer.

Homeschooling, the Feds, and You: Who Knows Best?
Was this a warning shot? Or just a misinformed opinion? Homeschooling parents want to know.
Recently, US Secretary of Education John King, while speaking at a press conference, remarked that although some homeschool situations are just fine, in general, "Students who are homeschooled are not getting kind of the rapid instructional experience they would get in school."
King also said that part of the school experience is learning how to deal with and build relationships with peers and teachers--implying that homeschoolers don't get this kind of experience.
Now, before I go on, in the interest of full disclosure, I'll tell you that my wife and I homeschool our three daughters. To be specific, we're part of a community of homeschooling families with a hybrid model that shares resources and that journeys together.

We think our daughters are receiving a first-rate education. I say that not just so you know I've got a horse in the race, but because my wife and I have personal experience. We know this world. We live in it.

Carbon Tax On Children? Environmentalists Push Population Control
The carbon tax has finally been taken to its logical/illogical conclusion by anti-human environmentalists and the result is population control through taxation.
Carbon taxation schemes have always been about social control, using global warming to justify punishing productive businesses with taxes that funnel massive sums of money into government. 
But now liberal elites have begun to discuss the carbon tax in terms of a carbon tax on human beings themselves.  
image: http://www.prophecynewswatch.com/images/ads/shofarsept242016.jpg
In a recent keynote speech at Planned Parenthood, the radical feminist Gloria Steinem somehow succeeded in linking abortion with climate change in a way that is both antihuman and deeply disturbing.
According to Steinem, "Forced childbirth is the single biggest cause of global warming". For Steinem, not only is protecting the right of a woman's unborn fetus now a "forced childbirth", but it is the single greatest catalyst for global warming. 
Her logic is simple, and chilling in its implications: people produce carbon, thus more people will bring greater carbon emissions while fewer people will bring lower carbon emissions. 
But what about the stated goal of several environmental radicals like Bill Gates who claim to want to reduce carbon emissions to zero?

Obama Has Learned Nothing About the Israeli-Palestinian Conflict
The Palestinians are unwilling to make any territorial compromises that would lead to a two-state solution. They continue to show support for the strategy whereby they would accept a Palestinian state in the West Bank and Gaza only as a first stage in the eventual liberation of all of "Palestine".
President Obama's failure to learn anything in the last eight years about the Palestinian-Israeli dispute was evident in his final speech to the UN General Assembly. 
In the mere 31 words that he devoted to the subject, he laid bare his ignorance: "Israelis and Palestinians will be better off if Palestinians reject incitement and recognize the legitimacy of Israel," he said. "But Israel recognizes that it cannot permanently occupy and settle Palestinian land."
Sounds reasonable enough, doesn't it? Both sides have responsibility for the conflict -- except they don't.
image: http://www.prophecynewswatch.com/images/ads/shofarsept242016.jpg
First, the Palestinian side of the equation was severely understated. Yes, the Palestinians must reject incitement, but they must also actively prevent terrorism. They must stop using US and EU taxpayer money to pay terrorists and their families. 
Yasser Arafat said he recognized Israel, but it has been clear since that 1993 letter to Yitzhak Rabin that the Palestinians do not accept the legitimacy of Israel as the national home of the Jewish people.
Furthermore, the Palestinians are unwilling to make any territorial compromises that would lead to a two-state solution. 
They continue to show support for the strategy whereby they would accept a Palestinian state in the West Bank and Gaza only as a first stage in the eventual liberation of all of "Palestine" -- a goal reflected in Palestinian media, maps, crossword puzzles, textbooks, Fatah insignias, and every other venue one can name.
Worse, the possibility of a political solution to the conflict has been eliminated not by Israeli actions, but by the ascendancy of radical Islam -- best represented by Hamas -- in Palestinian society.

Turkey: Land of Mosques, Prisons and the Uneducated
One way the rise of Islamist authoritarianism in a country can be seen is by the rise in the number of mosques, religious schools and prisons -- coupled with a sharp decline in the quality of education. Turkey is no exception.
Most recently, the Turkish government said that it would build 174 new prisons, increasing capacity by 100,000 convicts. This is Turkey's reply to complaints that six convicts must share a cell built for three. Convicts say they must sleep in turns in their bunk beds.
image: http://www.prophecynewswatch.com/images/ads/shofarsept242016.jpg
Before that, Turkey's government released nearly 40,000 convicted criminals, in order to make space for tens of thousands of suspects, including journalists, businessmen and academics, detained after the failed coup of July 15.
The other type of trendy building in Turkey is the mosque. Turkey's state-funded Directorate for Religious Affairs (Diyanet) has proudly announced that nearly 9,000 new mosques were built across the country between 2005 and 2015. 
The number of mosques in Turkey is estimated at around 90,000, or one mosque per 866 people. Iran, with a similar population to Turkey's [nearly 78 million] boasts just 48,000 mosques. In other words, Turkey has twice as many mosques as the Islamic Republic of Iran, for roughly the same population. Egypt, which has a population -- nearly 90 million -- bigger than Turkey's, has 67,000 mosques.
Turkey's president, Recep Tayyip Erdogan, has not only been building mosques and prisons to further Islamize the country. He has also passionately been building religious schools [from which he once graduated]. 
He boasts that during his term as prime minister and president (since November 2002), the number of students enrolled at religious schools, officially called "imam schools," has risen from 60,000 to more than 1.2 million -- a 20-fold increase. In his study, "The Islamization of Turkey: Erdogan's Education Reforms," Svante E. Cornell wrote that:
"The growing efforts at Islamization of Turkish society have largely gone unnoticed. For many years, Islamization was the dog that did not bark: in spite of dire predictions by secularists, the ruling AKP did not introduce conspicuous efforts to Islamize Turkey. But since 2011, this has changed.

Christian Schools Under Pressure To Have Gay Clubs
Several Christian schools are under fire after telling the Alberta Education Minister that they would not comply with his demands that all school boards throughout the province submit policies as to how they would accommodate homosexual and transgender students.
Let them - or else. That, in a nutshell, was the stern warning -- in the name of provincial law - that was given to Canadian Pastor Brian Coldwell, chairman of the Independent Baptist Christian Education Society and pastor of New Testament Baptist Church. Non-compliance could see the schools lose their charter as well as millions of dollars in tax- funded revenues.
Coldwell was ordered specifically specifically to allow gays freedom to form homosexual clubs in his Christian schools amongst the vast majority of straight students.  
image: http://www.prophecynewswatch.com/images/ads/shofarsept242016.jpg
The orders are in blatant and direct contravention of the school's moral standards, not to mention the rights of straight students not to be coerced or influenced against their strongly-held religious convictions.
Heather Clark for christiannews.net further noted that Pastor Coldwell is standing firm and has, so far, refused to buckle under the pressure. Coldwell runs Meadows Baptist Academy and Harvest Baptist Academy in Parkland County in Alberta.
Alberta Education Minister David Eggen reportedly sent the demand letter to Coldwell on September 2nd.  Earlier this year, Eggen had also sent a letter to school boards throughout the province, advising that officials must draft and submit policies by the end of March explaining how they would accommodate homosexual and transgender students.
But Coldwell told CBC News that he would not comply.
"I have a duty as a pastor to protect the flock of God," he said. "And there is no way under Heaven I'm going to allow gay activists to come in here and basically undermine our ministries and our religious freedoms or confuse and corrupt our children."
"To be able to come into religious institutions, Christian schools, churches and demand that we permit them to set up their GSA clubs and have a platform to advance what I would call anti-Christian, hostile liberal, secular values, undermines our Christian faith," Coldwell said.
He added that students are free to choose other schools if they don't align with the Christian faith and its teachings on sexuality.
"If a student doesn't agree with our statement of faith, and our Christian moral values and so forth, then they have the option of attending many other schools--secular schools, non-religious schools," he told the CBC. "We're not saying that the gay community doesn't have any rights. But they just don't have the right to come in here and push their agenda, or what you might call the rainbow ideology.

The Government Is Turning the Entire United States Into A Debt Prison
The staggering amount of debt held by the American empire ensures the public will be working it off for generations to come. The government has already begun its campaign to make it more difficult to leave the country, and it has also begun to crack down on the finances of the eight million Americans living abroad.
Since the United States was founded, citizenship has represented a safe haven from oppressive regimes around the world. By preserving the principles of small government and free markets, those who were willing to work hard found success, and America became a magnet for innovation. 
But as the U.S. continues to erode personal and economic freedom, more people than ever before are handing over their U.S. passports to seek better opportunities abroad.

Biochip Technologies: From Fringe To Mainstream
Biochip technology is becoming big business, but not everyone is embracing the changes. There are concerns about the potential dangers these technologies can offer. Right now, implants are already being designed that will provide your medical information, act as a key to your home, and store business card information.
Biochip technology is becoming big business, but not everyone is embracing the changes. There are concerns about the potential dangers these technologies can offer. Right now, implants are already being designed that will provide your medical information, act as a key to your home, and store business card information. 

These are not wearable devices that you can put on and take off, but actual implantable devices that are placed under the skin. The implants work through RFID technology, which can be read by smartphones and readers that allow people access to buildings through ID cards or badges.

Current estimates indicate that some 50,000 people around the world may already have these implants and be using them for access to their homes and businesses, contact details, and more. 
While it is becoming a popular trend in some circles, there are real worries about where the use of these kinds of devices may take society. 
The tags only work when the scanner activates them, so there is no worry about dead batteries, and they take only seconds to implant under the skin. That makes it sound almost too easy to get and start using these implants for all sorts of daily things.
Will This Become Mandatory?
One concern for many people is that the "chipping" of human beings may eventually become mandatory. Similar to how pet owners in some areas have seen the optional chipping of pets now

The Phony Threat of a "Palestinian Majority"
A group advocating Palestinian statehood took out a full-page ad in The New York Times last week to warn that there will be "a Palestinian majority" in Israel in less than a decade unless such a state is created.
A reader of the ad might think he had fallen into a time warp and ended up sometime prior to the signing of the 1993 Oslo accords.
The ad, sponsored by the S. Daniel Abraham Center for Middle East Peace, was headlined "Separation Between Israelis and Palestinians is Essential." 
image: http://www.prophecynewswatch.com/images/ads/shofarsept242016.jpg
It featured what it called a "population breakdown from the Mediterranean Sea to the Jordan River" - a frightening chart that showed the current Jewish population and that of projected estimates; in 2015, 52 percent Jewish; in 2020, 49 percent Jewish and in 2030, 44 percent Jewish. 
Those statistics are not merely ignorant; they constitute deliberate deception.
The number of people between "the Mediterranean Sea and the Jordan River" is not the same as the number of Israeli citizens. That territory consists of two entirely separate bodies of people: Israeli citizens and Palestinian Authority residents. 
Among Israeli citizens, there is an approximately 80 percent Jewish majority, and it will remain that way for a long time to come. Among the PA's residents, there is a 100 percent Arab majority and that will not change.

The Bible Shows Its Age: Unfurling the Burnt Scroll
How do you read a scroll you can't open? Modern technology provides the answer, and shows that Scripture is more durable than the material it's written on.
Is the Bible we read today the same Bible that was written millennia ago by prophets and apostles? That was a question that consumed scholars for generations. You see, prior to 1947, the earliest manuscript copies of the Old Testament were from the Middle Ages. Critics seized on this as a major hole in the Bible's reliability. 
How, they asked, could we trust a text that had been copied hundreds of times in the thousands of years since its authors wrote it? Surely it had suffered corruption through all those duplications.
image: http://www.prophecynewswatch.com/images/ads/shofarsept242016.jpg
But seventy years ago, a Bedouin shepherd boy shattered those doubts when he threw a rock into a cave, breaking some clay pots containing the Dead Sea Scrolls. 
These ancient manuscripts of the Old Testament were near matches to the medieval text, confirming our modern Bible's antiquity and pushing the earliest known evidence for the Hebrew Scriptures back a millennium.
Now, thanks to another discovery on the shores of the Dead Sea, and an exciting technological breakthrough, that date has moved back even further.
This story begins in 1970, when archaeologists at En-Gedi found a burnt scroll that was little more than a lump of charcoal. A fire in 600 AD had destroyed the synagogue there, leaving its ancient documents so brittle that a touch would cause them to disintegrate. 
Unable to read the scroll, curators merely preserved it, hoping that someday, the technology necessary to peek at its contents would be developed.
Well, that day has arrived. The New York Times reports that computer scientists at the University of Kentucky partnered with biblical scholars in Jerusalem to pioneer a technique for "unfurling" this badly-damaged scroll. 
Thanks to traces of metal in the ancient ink and a new method for reconstructing 3-D surfaces, known as "volume cartography," these scientists were able to read the charred parchment, without ever opening it.

The Challenge Of Pastoral Burnout
It is estimated that this year, thousands will leave the ministry, burned out and hurting - from big and small churches, growing and stagnant ones. When famous Pastors quit, their successes and failures are amplified.
The office of a pastor is high, noble and holy calling, much respected within Christendom. Due to their function in the church, pastors are perhaps the most visible among the five-fold ministry that also comprises apostles, prophets, evangelists and teachers.  
The pastor is perceived to enjoy closer fellowship with God, greater hope of eternal rewards, and many blessings through service and spiritual strength. 
Despite holding such an historically revered and even enviable position, pastors are throwing in the towel in seemingly unprecedented numbers.
image: http://www.prophecynewswatch.com/images/ads/calendar6.jpg
One of the latest examples is that of megachurch Pastor, Pete Wilson, who resigned from Nashville's Cross Point Church saying he is "tired and broken,"  or simply burned out. 
Cross Point now has over 7,000 attendees every week, at multiple locations, and is continuing to grow. Wilson, however, announced to his congregation that he is burned out and would be resigning.

Many Concerned Obama 'Wont Have Israel's Back' at UN After November Election
Read more at http://www.prophecynewswatch.com/article.cfm?recent_news_id=682#yEjLfgwygIKie4by.99
There is significant bipartisan concern in Washington that President Barack Obama "won't have Israel's back" at the United Nations following the election of his successor in November, a prominent Middle East expert told The Algemeiner on Tuesday.
Clifford D. May, president of the Foundation for Defense of Democracies think tank, spoke with The Algemeiner a day after 88 US senators sent a letter to Obama urging him to veto any one-sided resolutions regarding the Israeli-Palestinian conflict during the remainder of his time in office.
image: http://www.prophecynewswatch.com/images/ads/calendar6.jpg
The letter, which was organized by the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC), made "very telling points," May told The Algemeiner.
"A one-sided UN Security Council resolution would be damaging not just to Israel, but to any possibility of peace in the near future," May warned.
He further explained, "I think it's fairly obvious at this point that the UN is egregiously prejudiced against Israel. And what you don't want to see is something like what the French have been discussing -- mandated negotiations, and if those negotiations fail to produce fruit, the Palestinians would be rewarded. That would assure that Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas would not make any concessions."
In his final address to the UN General Assembly last week, Obama said, "Israelis and Palestinians will be better off if Palestinians reject incitement and recognize the legitimacy of Israel, but Israel recognizes that it cannot permanently occupy and settle Palestinian land."
May noted that those words would "probably feed into the concern that exists that after the election Obama will take actions that will tie the hands of the next president."

The Truth About Israel's Christian Minority
The Christian society is one of the successful minorities in Israel. There are people in high positions in education, in hospitals, courts - everywhere you look you will find a Christian in a high position. They are a quiet yet successful community, and they are not speaking out enough.
In the Gatestone Institute's August report on Christian persecution, Raymond Ibrahim described the brutal, rampant and global Islamic persecution of Christians and other minorities, including violations of religious freedom, harassment, detention, torture and executions. 
The accounts are too abundant and tragic to list in full, as many involve gruesome persecution, murder, and rape happening in Eritrea, Iran, Syria, Iraq, Uganda, Bangladesh, Congo, Philippines, Egypt, Tanzania, Pakistan, Germany, Azerbaijan, Turkey and Nigeria. 
image: http://www.prophecynewswatch.com/images/ads/calendar6.jpg
Ibrahim concluded, "Such Muslim persecution is not random but rather systematic, and takes place in all languages, ethnicities and locations."
Such was Jonathan Elkhoury's conclusion when he spoke last week at the Jerusalem Salon, an organization bringing English lectures and discussions to Jerusalem, about his experience fleeing from the Lebanese terror group Hezbollah's rule in Lebanon. 
Elkhoury fled to Israel with family after his father, a former South Lebanon Army (SLA) officer, had to leave his homeland during Israel's withdrawal in May 2000.
Now that he's found safe refuge in Israel, Elkhoury writes and talks about the situation of Israeli Christians and minorities to various audiences and advocates for the Christian Empowerment Council (CEC) in Israel. 
Elkoury concludes that to improve the life of Christians everywhere, Israeli Christians should speak out about their positive experiences as minorities in the Jewish state.

Why Do Kids Leave the Church? Don't Forget Bad Theology!
There is a vital component often left out of the discussions over why kids leave the church--the influence of theology. In my experience, there is often a faulty theological view driving why kids disengage the church (and many times their faith).
There has been a lot of talk recently about why kids leave the church, including this recent post by Bishop Robert Barron, and books such as You Lost Me (Kinnaman) and Sticky Faith (Kara Powell and Chap Clark). These authors, and many others, rightly point out that issues are complex and can involve a number of different factors (moral, volitional, emotional, relational, intellectual, etc.).
And yet there is a component often left out of these discussions--the influence of theology--that is so often at the heart of why kids leave the church. In my experience, there is often a faulty theological view driving why kids disengage the church (and many times their faith). Consider three examples:
image: http://www.prophecynewswatch.com/images/ads/calendar6.jpg
1. Misunderstanding the nature of man: Recently I was speaking at a youth group in southern California, not far from where I live. After the service, a college student, who described himself as a former Christian, wanted to discuss the "Problem of Hell." 
We talked for nearly 45 minutes and he raised the standard objections against the justice of Hell: How could a loving God send someone to Hell? How can a finite sin warrant an eternal punishment? How can people enjoy Heaven knowing their loved ones are in Hell? I did my best to respond with both kindness and truth (and by the way, most of my apologetics points were borrowed from C.S. Lewis!).
After our talk, it seemed that I had made almost no "dent" with his questions. He still thought God was a moral monster. And then it dawned on me: His problem was that he saw human being as basically good. If humans are basically good, and simply commit a few "sins" in their lifetime, as he believed, then Hell does seem like overkill. 
Moreover, Hell can only begin to make sense when we grasp the biblical view of mankind--that we are made in God's image with infinite dignity, value, and worth, but our natures have been deeply corrupted because of sin (See Romans 3:9-18; John 2:24; Mark 7:14-23). An unbiblical view of the nature of man was at the heart of his rejection of the faith.

   How Is the Godless West Working Out?
 
The prices that we Americans and Europeans are paying for creating the first godless societies in recorded history amount to civilizational suicide. Boys and girls are not to be referred to as boys and girls; Western elites dismiss national identity as protofascism; the belief that moral truth exists has been destroyed and replaced by feelings and opinions; fewer people are marrying; and more people live alone than at any time in American history.
There are many recent developments in the godless West. To name a few:
-The Supreme Court of Italy last week ruled that public masturbation is legal (except in front of minors).
-The New York City Council voted in May that public urination is not a criminal act.
-The San Francisco City Council decided, by one vote, to continue the city's ban on public nudity -- not, of course, on the grounds of "decency" but on the grounds of public health. 
Since that can easily be resolved by use of a towel on public benches and chairs, it is only a matter of time, probably a couple of years, before people will be permitted to walk around naked in San Francisco.
image: http://www.prophecynewswatch.com/images/ads/shofarsept242016.jpg
-A few weeks ago, teachers in Charlotte, North Carolina, were instructed not to refer to their elementary school students as "boys and girls" but as "students" and "scholars." The reasoning is presumably for inclusivity -- there may be a student who has no gender identity -- and that adults should not impose a gender identity on young people.

What Obama's Education Secretary Got Wrong About Homeschoolers
Read more at http://www.prophecynewswatch.com/article.cfm?recent_news_id=676#BO7Gkv746LIPMQmT.99
Homeschooling has been growing in popularity in recent years, and now accounts for about 3.4 percent of the school-age population. That's more than double the percentage (1.7 percent) of homeschooling families in 1999.
That's great news for families who have chosen to give a customized, tailor-made education to their children, and for the millions of families across the country whose children are thriving as a result of choosing to homeschool.
image: http://www.prophecynewswatch.com/images/ads/calendar6.jpg
Yet, in remarks Wednesday to reporters at a breakfast hosted by The Christian Science Monitor, Education Secretary John King--although he conceded that there are homeschooling families who are doing well--told the audience he worries that homeschooled students aren't "getting the range of options that are good for all kids." According to Politico:
King said he worries that 'students who are homeschooled are not getting kind of the rapid instructional experience they would get in school'--unless parents are "very intentional about it".
King said the school experience includes building relationships with peers, teachers and mentors--elements which are difficult to achieve in homeschooling, he said, unless parents focus on it.
King's statement that he is concerned that homeschooled students are not getting the "rapid instructional experience they would get in school" is problematic on several fronts.
First, it assumes homeschooled students are not in school. As Milton Friedman famously quipped in "Free to Choose," "not all 'schooling' is education and not all 'education' is schooling."
Many homeschooled students attend some of the most rigorous and intellectually challenging schooling there is. Many families pursue a rigorous classical curriculum. Others choose to homeschool because their children wanted more challenging options than their assigned public school provided.
Research suggests homeschooled students are better prepared for college. Colleges likes Hillsdale and Grove City have become renowned for their rigor and high proportion of homeschooled matriculates. Contrary to King's analysis, homeschooled students are in "school," and they're doing great.
Second, let's examine what King refers to as the "rapid instructional experience" students receive in the aggregate in K-12 education today.

Lessons From Tony Campolo - A Case Study In Christian Leadership Decline
Prominent author, pastor, and sociologist Dr. Tony Campolo recently told UK-based Premier Media that he no longer wanted to be considered an evangelical.
Speaking on Premier's Inspirational Breakfast, Campolo in answering the 'why' of his decision said: "Evangelicals in the United States are anti-environment... If you say you're an Evangelical you're anti-gay, you're anti-women, you're pro-war...
image: http://www.prophecynewswatch.com/images/ads/shofarsept242016.jpg
"In the southern states, eighty percent of the people go to church at least once a month and yet they're the strongest supporters for capital punishment. How do you reconcile Evangelicals favoring capital punishment when Jesus said: 'blessed are the merciful'? If you're going to get mercy you've got to show mercy. Evangelicals are hard-nosed people when it comes to punishing criminals."
Shane Vander Hart for caffeinatedthoughts.com recently weighed in on this, decrying that Campolo paints capital punishment with a pretty broad brush here, considering that God, who instituted the idea of capital punishment, also identified Himself as a merciful God.
Hart emphasizes that he isn't saying Campolo is not a Christian. He recognizes the extensive and effective work that Campolo has
 dne in ministering to prisoners, the poor, youth ministries, and other ways. 
"I do believe he has promoted false teaching, though, and I think he has strayed from the evangelical reservation, so to speak, for a few reasons," Hart stated, observing three areas of the Campolo's teachings that he considers false

Palestinians Plan Judenrein State - A Land Without Jews
Proudly touting a "final resolution" that means the elimination of an entire ethic group from a parcel of land cannot be legitimately characterized as anything but an endorsement of genocide. In what other country would we condone a call to eliminate or expel an entire ethnic group?
Some are now asking, why it is so hard for the Obama administration to accept the true nature of the hard-line Palestinian policy of ethnic cleansing? 
Elizabeth Trudeau, a US State Department spokesperson, responded to a statement from Benjamin Netanyahu by saying, "We obviously strongly disagree with the characterization that those who oppose settlement activity or view it as an obstacle to peace are somehow calling for ethnic cleansing of Jews from the West Bank."   
image: http://www.prophecynewswatch.com/images/ads/shofarsept242016.jpg
This rebuke of the truth followed a statement in which Mr. Netanyahu spoke with characteristic honesty about the Palestinian Authority's stated desire to create a Palestinian state without Jews, cleansing the territories of any Jewish presence. 
When examined without bias, there can be no doubt, however, that ethnic cleansing is precisely the goal of the Palestinian Authority, while such a crime could never be accepted from Israel. 
To say there is a disconnect between Palestinian statements made in English, which are destined for a Western audience, and those made in Arabic, would be a gross understatement. 
Those who defend the Palestinian objections to Israeli settlements turn to statements made by Palestinian leaders, invariably to Western journalists, in which they promise equal rights to Jews in a Palestinian state. 
Yet at the same time, the leader of the Palestinian Authority, Mahmoud Abbas, boasted in 2013 to the Egyptian president, "In a final resolution, we would not see the presence of a single Israeli--civilian or soldier--on our lands."

Obama's Final UN Speech Promotes A 'Liberal World Order' And A Palestinian State
During Barack Obama's eighth and final address to the United Nations he let his true colors show. He staunchly defended globalism, he took several not very subtle shots at Donald Trump, and he boldly declared that Israel "cannot permanently occupy and settle Palestinian land".
During Barack Obama's eighth and final address to the United Nations he let his true colors show. He staunchly defended globalism, he took several not very subtle shots at Donald Trump, and he boldly declared that Israel "cannot permanently occupy and settle Palestinian land". 
That statement about "Palestinian land" was extremely alarming to many, because there are indications that Obama may decide to support a UN Security Council resolution that establishes the parameters for a Palestinian state during his final months in the White House. 
Barack Obama has promised to squeeze every ounce of "change" out of the remainder of his term that he possibly can, and his last UN speech showed what is on his heart at this moment.
According to the Washington Post, Obama's final UN address represented "an impassioned plea on behalf of a liberal world order"...

Time To Face The True State Of The Middle Class In America
As the middle class has shrunk and the cost of living has increased, a lot of people have decided to quite literally "live on the road". Whether it is a car, a truck, a van, a bus or an RV, an increasing number of Americans are using their vehicles as their homes.
Do you remember the old Saturday Night Live sketches in which comedian Chris Farley portrayed a motivational speaker that lived in a van down by the river?  Unfortunately, this is becoming a reality for way too many Americans.  As the middle class has shrunk and the cost of living has increased, a lot of people have decided to quite literally "live on the road".

Whether it is a car, a truck, a van, a bus or an RV, an increasing number of Americans are using their vehicles as their homes.  Just recently, someone that I know took a trip down the west coast of the United States and stayed at a number of campgrounds along the way.  
What she discovered was that a lot of people were actually living at these campgrounds.  Of course there are some that actually prefer that lifestyle, but many others are doing it out of necessity.
Earlier this week, Circa.com posted a story about "the van life".  One of the individuals that they featured was a recent graduate of the University of Southern California named Stephen Hutchins.  Without much of an income at the moment, he decided that the best way to cut expenses was to live in his van...

Drone Wars: Only The Beginning
As of early this year, the number of countries that employ surveillance drones stood at 78 and those that have equipped their drones with weapons is now at least 21, with 7 of those countries actively using those drones in combat operations.
Perhaps the greatest revolution in warfare over the past decade and a half has been the proliferation of armed drones in combat, but in recent years the use of these lethal robots has quickly moved from the sole possession of the United States and into the hands of poorer countries, despotic regimes and now even terrorist groups.

As of early this year, the number of countries that employ surveillance drones stood at 78 and those that have equipped their drones with weapons is now at least 21, with 7 of those countries actively using those drones in combat operations.

The combat drone is a weapon unlike most other tools of warfare because it allows the soldier to be separated from the battlefield. Armed drones allow a nation to engage in combat operations without putting its own soldiers in harm's way. Removing domestic casualties from the equation lowers the chance for political opposition to war since it virtually eliminates the consequences that politicians would normally face. 
The act of killing through a video monitor has also been shown to take a toll on the drone pilots that struggle with feelings of disassociation in the act of killing that is both real and artificial. And then there are the errors. Even in the hands of the United States, drones have resulted in a collateral damage rate of 9.5% when comparing intended kills with civilian deaths.
The newest country to receive drones is Saudi Arabia. The United States has refused to sell to its ally, despite supplying the kingdom with $60 billion in military equipment since 2010, including F-16 fighters. The sticking point for the United States in its dealing with Saudi Arabia is the dirty war it is currently waging in Yemen and the potential for drones to worsen the slaughter. 
Thousands of civilians have been bombed and numerous historical sites destroyed in their campaign to stamp out Shia rebels in Yemen. The Saudi kingdom has expressed its interest in obtaining lethal drone technology for at least the past six years and now it has found a vendor in the Chinese government.
The Chinese-made Pterodactyl drone is an armed autonomous flying robot that is about 30 feet long and that looks strikingly like the Predator and Reaper drones from the United States, yet with less sophisticated technology.

The Dictatorship of Relativism: Absurdity Reigns--For Now
No--you haven't lost your mind. Things really are crazy out there. And you can thank something called the dictatorship of relativism.
Does it kind of feel like folks have lost their minds?  That we've taken a collective walk through the looking glass and nothing is logical, nothing really makes sense? 
That you can look people square in the eye, assert a scientific, biological fact such as "if you have an x and a y chromosome and you have male sexual organs, then you are not a woman," only to have them accuse you of being a hater or on the wrong side of history
Or take abortion. Even some of the staunchest abortion supporters admit a fetus is a baby is a human being. But that doesn't matter, because a woman has a right to do what she wants "with her own body."
It's sort of kooky. How have we reached this level of absurdity?
Well, as I explain in a recent article at Intercollegiate Review, welcome to "the dictatorship of relativism," which, as Pope Benedict said, "does not recognize anything as for certain and which has as its highest goal one's own ego and one's own desires."
I first encountered this kind of pervasive relativism as an undergraduate at Yale. I came from a working-class background, I actually believed in the truth, that it was beautiful, and worth living for and even dying for.

Critical Year For Israel As UN Bias Expected To Continue
As the United Nations begins it's 71st General Assembly in New York City, Israel is preparing itself for another round of attacks. There is no other nation on Earth as vilified in the United Nations as Israel.
Many fear the Security Council this year will push through a resolution setting territorial parameters, and a deadline, for the creation of a Palestinian state.
President Obama has hinted that in the final months of his term, he may reverse the traditional U.S. policy of vetoing such resolutions. Some have even suggested the recent military aid deal formalized by the United States and Israel is part of that plan by using a carrot and stick mentality.  
The US has given Israel the military assistance carrot but will now allow the stick to fall at the UN by not protecting it from a hostile world body.

New China Banking Crisis Could Rock Global Financial System
The pinnacle of the global financial system is warning that conditions are right for a "full-blown banking crisis" in China. At this point the total value of all outstanding loans in China has hit a grand total of more than 28 trillion dollars. That is essentially equivalent to the commercial banking systems of the United States and Japan combined.
The pinnacle of the global financial system is warning that conditions are right for a "full-blown banking crisis" in China.  Since the last financial crisis, there has been a credit boom in China that is really unprecedented in world history.  At this point the total value of all outstanding loans in China has hit a grand total of more than 28 trillion dollars.  
image: http://www.prophecynewswatch.com/images/ads/calendar6.jpg
That is essentially equivalent to the commercial banking systems of the United States and Japan combined.  While it is true that government debt is under control in China, corporate debt is now 171 percent of GDP, and it is only a matter of time before that debt bubble horribly bursts.  
The situation in China has already grown so dire that the Bank for International Settlements is sounding the alarm...
A key gauge of credit vulnerability is now three times over the danger threshold and has continued to deteriorate, despite pledges by Chinese premier Li Keqiang to wean the economy off debt-driven growth before it is too late.
The Bank for International Settlements warned in its quarterly report that China's "credit to GDP gap" has reached 30.1, the highest to date and in a different league altogether from any other major country tracked by the institution. It is also significantly higher than the scores in East Asia's speculative boom on 1997 or in the US subprime bubble before the Lehman crisis.

What Will Israel's Next War Look Like?
With multiple enemies training hundreds of thousands of missiles and rockets on Israel's cities and towns, the Israeli Defense Force recently presented a next new war scenario to the Security Cabinet.
Of the estimated 230,000 weapons focused on Israel, the IDF predicts more than 10,000 direct hits in populated Jewish areas resulting in upwards of 400 fatalities, according to Israel National News. 
In its presentation to the Security Council, the IDF's very real war scenario highlights the possible aggressions by Islamic terror groups from the Gaza Strip, both Syrian and Iranian armed forces, as well as Hezbollah in Lebanon. The army is making ready for a potential mass confrontation on multiple fronts. 
Such an assault on the Israeli citizenry would come from large, sustained rocket and missile attacks that would blanket the country from the northern Haifa region to the south coast and would expose much of the population to direct strikes on buildings.
Although many projectiles are expected to land in open spaces, at least one percent of all launched weapons would devastate urban and suburban populations and cause hundreds of civilian casualties.

Palestinian 'Ethnic-Cleansing' Mob In Action

Just as the Palestinian Authority seemed to have Israel's prime minister on the defensive over his "ethnic cleansing" remark, wouldn't you know it - two young Jewish women accidentally drove into the Palestinian Arab city of Tulkarm this week, and a Palestinian ethnic cleansing mob immediately tried to murder them.
Granted, the two women were wearing Israeli army uniforms. But so what? The US State Department and J Street are always telling us that the average Palestinian is moderate and wants to live in peace with Israelis. Why should the mere sight of an IDF uniform on a young woman fill them with murderous rage?
The two women weren't establishing a Jewish settlement in Tulkarm. They weren't massacring Palestinians. They weren't oppressing anyone or implementing an apartheid regime. In fact, there hasn't been an Israeli military government ruling Tulkarm since 1995. The Palestinian Authority has been the "occupier" there for the last 21 years.
The two young women weren't on patrol or brandishing their weapons. They weren't a brigade of combat soldiers in full gear. They were obviously just two young women driving by. Any rational person would have understood that they innocently took a wrong turn. The Palestinians' response, however, was anything but rational: a mob immediately surrounded the car and tried to stone the women to death.
Think about the circumstances. The entire episode played out over a matter of minutes, at most. There wasn't time to organize a demonstration. There wasn't time to gather politically-minded folk from various parts of Tulkarm.

Church Apostasy Grows Worldwide
With virtually every passing day, it's becoming clearer and clearer that the Christian church worldwide is faced with a serious moral decline and seems to be losing the battle to retain its purity and integrity
One of the persistent areas of concern is the acceptance and celebration of homosexuality in the church.

A recent wnd.com report by Bob Unruh noted that Biola University, once considered one of the most conservative evangelical Christian universities in the nation, has announced the creation of a "purposeful, community-focused program" for students with same-sex attractions.
The Web page for the new program, called Sustinere, explains that students with same-sex attractions typically don't feel free to talk about their experiences and feel unsupported in their community.
The program "will seek to provide a caring and supportive community where students can journey together to live authentically and lovingly with same-sex sexual attractions, orientations, and identities."

Christianity and Islam
In Hungary, Croatia, and elsewhere in Eastern Europe, a pro-family, pro-life revolution and a rediscovery of Christian roots is occurring. Like it or not, the last chance to save Europe's roots might well come from the former communist members of the EU -- those who defeated the Ottomans in 1699 and now feel culturally threatened by their heirs.
Austria's fate is now at stake.

Perhaps it was a coincidence that Cardinal Christoph Schönborn, Archbishop of Vienna and tipped to be the next Pope, chose September 12, the anniversary of the Siege of Vienna, when Turkey's Ottoman troops nearly conquered Europe, to deliver a most dramatic appeal to save Europe's Christian roots.
image: http://www.prophecynewswatch.com/images/ads/calendar6.jpg


"Many Muslims want and say that 'Europe is finished'," Cardinal Schönborn said, before accusing Europe of "forgetting its Christian identity." He then denounced the possibility of "an Islamic conquest of Europe."
Konrad Pesendorfer, head of the Austrian Office of Statistics, said that by 2030, 40% of the population of Vienna will be foreign-born, thanks to internal demography and migration flows (60,000 arrivals in just one year).
Since the fall of Constantinople in 1453, much of Eastern Europe's Christian population spent centuries under Islamic occupation, particularly under the Ottomans. It now seems that the clock has reverted to 1683, when Ottoman armies were at the gates of Vienna.
It is not a coincidence that the fierce resistance of Eastern Europeans has been the main impediment to a unified response by the European Union to the migrant crisis. It was these Eastern states that forced German Chancellor Angela Merkel to halt the massive flux of migrants. Today, where there is no border, migrants keep coming en masse. In August alone, 23,000 migrants arrived in Italy.
Brussels is whipping up a propaganda war to cast the Western Europeans, who favor unvetted Muslim migration, as cosmopolitan and tolerant, and Eastern Europeans as a bunch of xenophobic bigots, if not outright neo-Nazis.

Canada Refuses To Confront Islamist Views Spreading Through Schools
The government of Canada has been calling for greater work towards identifying the causes of extremism and radicalization in Canada. One source of extremism is clearly in educational institutions. If the government of Canada is truly serious about attacking extremism in Canada, then having a national level investigation into educational institutions would be a good place to start.
Muslim children need to be stronger so they "won't get mixed with the moral degeneration of the Canadian community." At least this is the view of a teacher who explains why an Ottawa Islamic school uses the textbooks it does to keep Muslim youth firmly in the Sunni (Islamist) camp. At York University in Toronto, the Muslim Student Association has handed out literature that says beating a wife is permissible and that some wives will enjoy the beating.
These examples serve to highlight the many other instances of what is being taught in Ontario schools under current provincial Premier Kathleen Wynne and national leader Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.
Lovers of Death
Young Muslims of Canada, based in Mississauga, is an offshoot of the Islamic Circle of North America (ICNA), which has offices in Canada and the USA. Its website, aimed at young Muslims, tells them that they should: "Prepare for jihad and be the lovers of death. Life itself shall come searching after you."

Fresh Wave Of Terror Attacks In America: Fears Of More To Come
New York City, New Jersey and Minnesota were all hit by terror attacks within a 24 hour time period, and authorities are concerned that this may be the start of a fresh wave of terrorism in this country.
New York City, New Jersey and Minnesota were all hit by terror attacks within a 24 hour time period, and authorities are concerned that this may be the start of a fresh wave of terrorism in this country. 

Those that conduct acts of terror do so because they want to create fear and because they want attention. All three of these attacks accomplished those goals, but in particular the bombing in New York City's thriving Chelsea neighborhood instantly captured the attention of the entire nation.

The following is how USA Today described the attack...

A Palestinian State Cometh: UN Secretary-General Calls For Imminent Action
United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon has harshly criticized Israeli settlements in the West Bank and is calling for urgent action to save "the two state solution". He insists that Israeli settlements in the West Bank "are illegal under international law" and he told reporters that the "occupation" of Palestinian-controlled territories "must end".
These comments represent perhaps the strongest statements that any UN Secretary-General has ever made against Israel, and they come at a very ominous time. As I detailed just a few days ago, there is a major push to try to get some sort of UN Security Council resolution on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict before Barack Obama leaves office. 

As you will see below, this is something that UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon obviously endorses.
image: http://www.prophecynewswatch.com/images/ads/calendar6.jpg
Those that are hoping for a "two state solution" know that fresh negotiations between the Israelis and the Palestinians are not likely to happen any time in the near future. So if the "peace process" is going to move forward, it is going to have to happen at the United Nations.
Ban Ki-moon is among those that are desperate to try to save the "two state solution", and as the UN begins a new annual session this week he is urging imminent action. The following comes from the official UN website...

Churches Forced To Confront Transgender Agenda
The 'transgender agenda' has evolved and is spreading to the point where it is now a very real threat to Christian believers, churches, and ministries in the United States. It is becoming so woven into law and social fabric that those refusing to pander to their value systems now face some very real legal and licensing risks.
WND.com previously reported on the issue in Iowa in a report by Bob Unruh. There, a church sued the state in federal court, demanding that officials withdraw their threats of prosecution because of the content of the church's sermons, specifically what is said about homosexuality, same-sex "marriage," transgenderism and other related topics.

Most recently, Unruh  has further reported about orders for public building managers, for colleges and even for public schools to allow a male who says he's female to use locker rooms and restrooms set aside for women. The privacy and feelings of the biological females who are in those facilities are of no account.

Now a second state has decided that churches, too, are bound by the agenda. The Massachusetts Commission against Discrimination this month released a "Gender Identity Guidance" that imposes its demands on society.

Why Is The Worlds Most Prosperous Nation So Depressed?.
The United States is the third most depressed country in the world according to new figures released by the World Health Organization. The US trailed only India and China while Germany, which came in 10th, was the only other Western nation to feature in the top 10.  
image: http://www.prophecynewswatch.com/images/ads/calendar6.jpg


The figures may be skewed slightly due to under reporting in some poorer nations, experts warn that the reason America ranked so highly is likely due to certain factors which aren't as prevalent in some other nations.
 
Americans are under constant pressure to maintain a stable job, raise a successful family and pursue the 'Great American Dream'. This constant pressure seems to be taking its toll on their  mental health.  In some other nations, even ones with significantly lower living standards, the pressure to be successful simply isnt as intense and this may be why they have lower rates of mental illness. 

Part of the problem may also be attributed to lack of treatment. According to the National Alliance on Mental Health, 1 in 5 Americans will experience some form of mental illness every year but less than half of those who do will receive any form of treatment. This is likely due to the stigma which still surrounds mental health issues, making people hes

Obama Plans To Bring In Four Times As Many Syrian Refugees In 2017
In 2016, approximately 10,000 Syrian refugees were brought into the United States, but in 2017 that number could skyrocket to 40,000 under Barack Obama's new plan.
Obama says that we must play our part in taking in those displaced by the ongoing Syrian civil war, but Republicans in Congress are outraged by this announcement and remain deeply concerned that there are terrorists among the refugees that are being brought in. 
image: http://www.prophecynewswatch.com/images/ads/calendar6.jpg
The Obama administration insists that all refugees are being subjected to rigorous screening, but his critics are quite skeptical. Coming out of the midst of a five year civil war, documentation is scarce for many of these refugees, and there aren't too many people that you can call over there that can serve as a solid reference at this point.
According to USA Today, the total number of refugees worldwide that will be brought in next year is scheduled to rise by 29 percent under Obama's new plan...
The White House plans to sharply increase the number of refugees accepted by the United States to 110,000 in the fiscal year that begins Oct. 1, saying the move is necessary to help stem a migrant crisis gripping Europe and the Middle East.

Venezuela's "Death Spiral" - A Warning To America's Socialists
For many Venezuelans, by every economic, social and political measure, their nation is unraveling at breakneck speed. Severe shortages of food, clean water, electricity and medicines punctuate a dire scenario of crime-ridden streets in this nearly failed OPEC state, which at one time claimed to be the most prosperous nation in Latin America.
For many Venezuelans, by every economic, social and political measure, their nation is unraveling at breakneck speed.

Severe shortages of food, clean water, electricity, medicines and hospital supplies punctuate a dire scenario of crime-ridden streets in the impoverished neighborhoods of this nearly failed OPEC state, which at one time claimed to be the most prosperous nation in Latin America.
image: http://www.prophecynewswatch.com/images/ads/calendar6.jpg

Today, a once comfortable middle-class Venezuelan father is scrambling desperately to find his family's next meal -- sometimes hunting through garbage for salvageable food. The unfortunate 75% majority of Venezuelans already suffering extreme poverty are reportedly verging on starvation.

Darkness is falling on Hugo Chavez's once-famous "Bolivarian revolution" that some policy experts, only a short time ago, thought would never end.
In a 2007 study on the Chavez years for the Washington, DC-based Center for Economic and Policy Research, Mark Weisbrot and Luis Sandoval wrote:

"At present it does not appear that the current economic expansion is about to end any time in the near future. The gains in poverty reduction, employment, education and health care that have occurred in the last few years are likely to continue along with the expansion."
While it was not so long ago that many people heralded Venezuela as Latin America's successful utopian Socialist experiment, something has gone dreadfully wrong as the revolution's Marxist founder, Hugo Chavez, turned his Chavismo dream into an economic nightmare of unimaginable proportions.

The question of whether Socialism can be an effective economic system was famously raised when Margaret Thatcher said of the British Labor Party:
"I think they've made the biggest financial mess that any government's ever made in this country for a very long time, and Socialist governments traditionally do make a financial mess. They always run out of other people's money. It's quite a characteristic of them. 

They then start to nationalise everything, and people just do not like more and more nationalisation, and they're now trying to control everything by other means."
In short: "The trouble with Socialism is that eventually you run out of other people's money."
When President Nicolas Maduro inherited the Venezuelan Socialist "dream", in April of 2013, just one month after Chavez died, he was facing a mere 53% inflation rate. 
Today the Venezuelan bolivar is virtually worthless, and inflation is creeping to 500% with expectations of much more. A recent Washington Post report stated:
" ...markets expect Venezuela to default on its debt in the very near future. The country is basically bankrupt. It is not easy for a nation to go bankrupt with the largest oil reserves in the world, but Venezuela has managed it. How? 
Well, a combination of bad luck and worse policies. The first step was when Hugo Chávez's socialist government started spending more money on the poor, with everything from two-cent gasoline to free housing. That may all seem like it's a good idea in general  but only as long as there's money to spend. And by 2005 or so, Venezuela didn't have any."
Chavez had the good fortune to die just before the grim reaper showed up on Venezuela's doorstep. According to policy specialist Jose Cardenas:

Euthanasia Practices Continue To Spread Worldwide
In the decade after Belgium legalized doctor-assisted death, the number of patients using it to end their lives rose 800%, according to records of the national euthanasia control committee. Critics of Belgium's law believe the law sends the wrong message about of the value of life and that the law is effecting the country's most vulnerable.
This week came the disturbing news out of Rio that one of the Belgian Paralympians is considering suicide after the Paralympics are over. The athlete in question,  Marieke Vervoort, has since denied she has any plans to end her life even though she does say she has her euthanasia papers "in hand". 
image: http://www.prophecynewswatch.com/images/ads/calendar6.jpg
Euthanasia has been legal in Belgium since 2002 when it became only the second country in the world to legalize assisted dying. To be eligible for euthanasia in Belgium, the law does not require that a patient be terminal, only that they are experiencing unbearable physical suffering. That's why Marieke Vervoort, who suffers from a painful degenerative spinal condition is eligible. 
She claims that euthanasia being legal allows her to keep living in peace knowing that she can end her life when she is ready.  In a media conference she claimed that she "would have committed suicide" had it not been for the fact that euthanasia was a possibility.

In tHe decade after Belgium legalized doctor-assisted death, the number of patients using it to end their lives rose 800%, according to records of the national euthanasia control committee. 
Critics of Belgium's law believe the law sends the wrong message about of the value of life and that the law is effecting the country's most vulnerable.  In 2013 Belgium extended their euthanasia laws to also include children, despite proponents earlier saying that it would never apply to children.
Just last year it emerged that a woman suffering from 'suicidal thoughts' had been given the green light to end her own life despite suffering no physical illness. While the law is meant to prevent euthanasia in such cases, critics argue that increasingly the safeguards are being openly ignored.
The renewed focus on euthanasia comes at a time when the practice is rapidly spreading across the world. The Netherlands, Belgium, Colombia and Luxemburg have legalized euthanasia while in Switzerland, Germany, Japan and Canada, doctor-assisted suicide, where patients take the final action themselves, is legal. Australia is currently considering legislation which would legalize euthanasia in the coming weeks as well.

Less Than Third of American Millennials Able to Identify Israel on Map
Less than one-third of US-educated millennials are able to identify Israel on a map, a new survey has found.
According to the joint study  titled What College-Aged Students Know About the World: A Survey on Global Literacy  conducted by the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) and National Geographic, a mere 31 percent of respondents knew the location of Israel on a map of the Middle East.

Close to 50% were able to locate Iraq and Iran on a map, with 61% able to identify Saudi Arabia.

A small number of respondents  29%  were able to identify Indonesia and its distinction as the country with the largest majority Muslim population in the world.

CFR and National Geographic concluded that the survey revealed significant gaps between what young people understand about todays world and what they need to know to successfully navigate and compete in it.
image: http://www.prophecynewswatch.com/images/ads/TFP_freedvd.jpg
The average score of respondents was only 55% correct, the report said. Just 29% of respondents earned a minimal pass  66% correct or better. Just over one percent&earned an A, 91% or higher.

The survey was conducted online and is based on responses of 1,203 participants aged 18 to 26 who currently attend or have recently attended a two or four-year college or university in the US.

Why You Should Be Paying Attention to America's Quiet War on Cash
A new war on cash is being waged that threatens freedom in a more subversive way than ever before.
Banks and governments around the world are cracking down on the use of paper money, and in turn, eliminating any anonymity left in the current system. Through strict rules on cash transactions and civil asset forfeiture laws, for example, the system has already instituted penalties for using cash.
 But as payments evolve into a purely digital network, the consequences of this new paradigm are being brought into the spotlight.
The ability to track, record, and mediate transactions of all individuals is a power dictators throughout history could have only dreamed of. Those who value privacy are turning to alternatives like cash, cryptocurrencies, and precious metals, but these directly threaten central bank dominance. 
This ongoing tug-of-war in financial innovation will determine whether we enter an age of individual empowerment or centralized enslavement.

Germany Readies Internal War On Terror, Prepares For Terror Attacks
    
There have been several alarming developments in Germany over the past few weeks. For the first time since the end of the Cold War, the German government has told its citizens to begin stockpiling food and water. 

And not long after announcing that, the government suggested that they may bring back the draft, which was abolished in 2011 after it was deemed to be archaic and unnecessary.

Initially the government was reluctant to bluntly spell out exactly why they wanted to bring back conscription or why their citizens should start stockpiling necessities. But based on some of the reports that have come from the German government since then, it's obvious that they're preparing terrorist attacks. 
And not the kind of run of the mill attacks that Germany has seen over the summer. It seems like Germany is preparing for the kind of terror attacks that could break down their society.
For instance, the German military admitted in August that dozens of Islamic extremists had infiltrated the armed forces. However, that's nothing compared to what Germany's interior minister recently admitted.

Speaking in an interview with Bild newspaper, Thomas de Maiziere said there were currently at least 520 "potential attackers" in the country, which has been on edge since two Islamic State-inspired attacks in July.

America's Homeless Tent Cities Are Booming
Just like during the last economic crisis, homeless encampments are popping up all over the nation as poverty grows at a very alarming rate.
According to the Department of Housing and Urban Development, more than half a million people are homeless in America right now, but that figure is increasing by the day.  And it isn't just adults that we are talking about.  

It has been reported that that the number of homeless children in this country has risen by 60 percent since the last recession, and Poverty USA says that a total of 1.6 million children slept either in a homeless shelter or in some other form of emergency housing at some point last year.  
Yes, the stock market may have been experiencing a temporary boom for the last couple of years, but for those on the low end of the economic scale things have just continued to deteriorate.
Tonight, countless numbers of homeless people will try to make it through another chilly night in large tent cities that have been established in the heart of major cities such as Seattle, Washington, D.C. and St. Louis.  Homelessness has gotten so bad in California that the L.A. City Council has formally asked Governor Jerry Brown to officially declare a state of emergency.

Health of Candidates Prompt Scrutiny of Running Mates' Views on Israel
In the event of a health crisis during an election, a presidential candidate's running mate does not automatically stand in his or her stead. However, it seems likely that the leaders of each party would indeed choose their vice presidential nominee as their new standard-bearer.
With questions surrounding the health of both presidential candidates in the spotlight, the positions of their running mates on Israel are attracting fresh scrutiny from the Jewish community.

Hillary Clinton's medical episode at the 9/11 memorial, which her doctor has said was due to pneumonia, highlighted the candidate's previous health problems, while the refusal of both Clinton and Donald Trump to release their full medical records fuels media speculation about the physical fitness of whoever will be America's next commander-in-chief.

These concerns have led to a renewed look at the policies and opinions of their vice presidential picks -- and potential successors.

"I think of this as the Horace Greeley conundrum," Professor Gil Troy of McGill University told JNS.org. While no presidential candidate has ever died or been incapacitated in the middle of a race, Greeley -- the 1872 nominee of the Liberal Republican party -- came close: he passed away only weeks after election day, and before the Electoral College had balloted.

Palestinians Race To Get UN Security Resolution Before Obama Leaves Office
A little more than four months from now Barack Obama's time in the White House is scheduled to end, and the Palestinians know that their best chance of getting a UN Security Council resolution addressing their conflict with Israel is rapidly slipping away.
A little more than four months from now Barack Obama's time in the White House is scheduled to end, and the Palestinians know that their best chance of getting a UN Security Council resolution addressing their conflict with Israel is rapidly slipping away. 

Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton are both greatly wooing the Jewish vote, and they both are making very strong pro-Israel statements these days. 

To many of you it probably isn't a surprise that the Palestinians are not exactly thrilled with the prospect of a Trump presidency, but the truth is that they are very leery of Clinton as well.  

At this point the Palestinians are pretty much convinced that any action at the UN Security Council must happen while Barack Obama still holds the reigns of power, and so they are in a race against time.

At a minimum, the Palestinians would like a UN Security Council resolution condemning any new Jewish settlement activity in the West Bank. And that is precisely what they are pushing very hard for right now...

European Leaders Discuss Plan For European Army

image: http://www.prophecynewswatch.com/images/recent/euarmyfeb032016.jpg

News Image BY SOEREN KERN/GATESTONE INSTITUTE SEPTEMBER 15, 2016
Share this article:
    
European leaders are discussing "far-reaching proposals" to build a pan-European military, according to a French defense ministry document leaked to the German newspaper, the Süddeutsche Zeitung.

The efforts are part of plans to relaunch the European Union at celebrations in Rome next March marking the 60th anniversary of the Treaty of Rome, which established the European Community.

The document confirms rumors that European officials are rushing ahead with defense integration now that Britain - the leading military power in Europe - will be exiting the 28-member European Union.

British leaders have repeatedly blocked efforts to create a European army because of concerns that it would undermine the NATO alliance, the primary defense structure in Europe since 1949.

Proponents of European defense integration argue that it is needed to counter growing security threats and would save billions of euros in duplication between countries.

Critics say that the creation of a European army, a long-held goal (see Appendix below) of European federalists, would entail an unprecedented transfer of sovereignty from European nation states to unelected bureaucrats in Brussels, the de facto capital of the EU.

Others say that efforts to move forward on European defense integration show that European leaders have learned little from Brexit  the June 23 decision by British voters to leave the EU  and are determined to continue their quest to build a European superstate regardless of opposition from large segments of the European public.

The Süddeutsche Zeitung reported that it had obtained a copy of a six-page position paper, jointly written by French Defense Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian and his German counterpart, Ursula von der Leyen. The document calls for the establishment of a "common and permanent" European military headquarters, as well as the creation of EU military structures, including an EU Logistics Command and an EU Medical Command.

The document calls on EU member states to integrate logistics and procurement, coordinate military R&D and synchronize policies in matters of financing and military planning. EU intelligence gathering would be improved through the use of European satellites; a common EU military academy would "promote a common esprit de corps."

Minority Report? Police Are Already Using AI To Stop Crimes Before They Happen
Pre-crime, a term coined by science fiction author Philip K. Dick and loosely described as the use of artificial intelligence to detect and stop crime before it happens, has become a terrifying reality -- and will likely be business-as-usual for police in just 15 years.
"Cities have already begun to deploy AI technologies for public safety and security," a team of academic researchers wrote in a new report titled Artificial Intelligence and Life in 2030. 

"By 2030, the typical North American city will rely heavily upon them. These include cameras for surveillance that can detect anomalies pointing to a possible crime, drones, and predictive policing applications."

First in an ongoing series for the Stanford University-hosted One Hundred Year Study on Artificial Intelligence (AI 100), the report is intended to spark debate on the benefits and detriments of AI's growing presence in society -- and, as in the area of law enforcement, the removal of the human factor won't necessarily end well.

Pro-Abortion Advocates Step Up Campaign For Abortion On Demand
There is clearly a disconnect between what the Bible teaches about the sanctity of life and what is being taught in churches and Christian schools across the country. Gallop released polling which showed that 52% of woman who have had an abortion identify as Christians.
The Pro-abortion group 'All Access' held their first annual concert for abortion rights in Cleveland last weekend with controversial music sensation Sia headlining the event. 

The stated aim of the group, which is actually an alliance of several pro-abortion organizations including NARAL and Planned Parenthood, is to 'expand access to abortion'  and repeal pro-life legislation.

The collaboration is just one of many initiatives that the pro-abortion lobby has attempted to get off the ground in response to a string of pro-life victories in state legislatures. 

The abortion movement has been set back in recent years and initiatives like 'All Access' are an attempt to regain lost ground.    

They have had particular problems recruiting young people and the hope is that concerts like the one held in Cleveland will help motivate the next generation of abortion advocates to become more active. 

Unfortunately for them, however, it appears that their attempts to attract young people back to their movement may not be working.  

A group of students from Students for Life America infiltrated the event and took photos which appear to show a half empty auditorium.

Scientists assure us that the New Madrid fault is around 30 years overdue for a major seismic event, and when it does happen it is going to be the biggest disaster in modern American history up to this point.
Did you know that Oklahoma was just hit by the largest earthquake ever recorded in the history of the state? And did you know that Oklahoma absolutely shattered their yearly record for earthquakes in 2015 and may break it again this year? 
According to the USGS, the number of significant earthquakes in the eastern and central sections of the nation has more than quintupled in recent years, and concern is growing that we could soon see a "megaquake" in the middle part of the country. 
Of course no discussion of megaquakes in the middle part of the country can leave out the New Madrid fault zone, which is approximately six times larger than the San Andreas fault zone in California. 
Scientists assure us that the New Madrid fault is around 30 years overdue for a major seismic event, and when it does happen it is going to be the biggest disaster in modern American history up to this point.
Late last month, eight states took part in a major drill that simulated what the damage from a New Madrid earthquake might look like. The following comes from a news report that was posted on August 24th...
Eight states are taking part in a multi-state disaster drill Wednesday.

Persecution Of Christians In China Intensifies
The Chinese government has a new weapon in it's crackdown of the growing Christian population - controlling how tithes and offerings are administered by the church.
Veronica Neffinger of Christian Headlines.com recently described how this is happening as part of a crackdown on Christianity by Chinese authorities that seems to have originated in China's province of Zheijiang. 
"The government officials will interfere with church affairs, managing our donations and some large-scale projects. We have to obtain their (the government's) permission if we would like to buy equipment or decorate the church. We will have to ask for permission for any expenses more than a few thousand yuan," a source told China Aid, which has been described as a watchdog for Christian persecution in China.
China has been increasing its persecution of Christians and crackdown against Christianity in the last few years. Neffinger points out that such incidents were triggered in 2014 when China's president Xi Jinping began a "Beautification" campaign called the "Three Rectifications and One Demolition" campaign.

Islamism, Europe and Elections
Each one of the political storms now waging, and those expected to begin shortly, occur due to specific reasons, but behind all of them is, in one form or another, concern about Islamism and its implications -- whether in terms of terrorism or in terms of destroying the cultural fabric and upsetting the demographic balance.
The defeat of German Chancellor Angela Merkel's Christian Democratic Union in her home state of Mecklenburg-Vorpommern is a warning sign for the ruling party in Germany and proves that the United States may not be the only country where a political drama will be unfolding over the next few months.
The potential for political transition exists mainly in Germany and in France, but Britain beat them to the punch with the Brexit vote in favor of separating from the European Union. 
Each one of the political storms now waging, and those expected to begin shortly, occur due to specific reasons, but behind all of them is, in one form or another, concern about Islamism and its implications -- whether in terms of terrorism or in terms of destroying the cultural fabric and upsetting the demographic balance.
Popular Swiss daily Neue Zurcher Zeitung published a detailed article about the incremental strategy used by the Muslim Brotherhood and Salafi movements in their efforts to take over the world: a small concession here, a small concession there, apparent setbacks on unimportant issues like dress or education, promoting Sharia law, etc. 
All this on the pretense of equality and human rights -- until the walls of Western democratic society are completely breached in a decisive attack. The article's author is not a character like French writer Michel Houellebecq, who describes the Islamist victory over France as a near foregone conclusion, but rather a respected professor of political science and Middle Eastern history at the University of Zurich.
While Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump leverages the Islamist threat, in Merkel's Germany, it is already a reality. In a country that absorbed about a million immigrants, the vast majority of them Muslims, and which will take in a further 300,000 before year's end -- all this on top of the near 3 million Turkish immigrants already living there -- the Islamist issue has become a political and electoral time bomb.

Israeli Victory Is the Only Way to Bring Peace
Today's conventional wisdom holds that conflicts are best resolved through negotiation and compromise. But let's look at the facts. For most of human history, military victory ended wars.
At his first security briefing, Avigdor Liberman, Israel's Defense Minister, declared that Israel no longer has "the luxury of conducting drawn-out wars of attrition." 100 days into his term, with no sign of the decades-long conflict slowing, it is clear that the time has come to apply that principle to the Israeli-Palestinian peace process. 
In order for there to be peace between Israel and its Arab neighbors, Israel must win and the Palestinians must lose.
For most of human history, military victory ended wars. The Pax Romana, a period of 200 years of relative peace within the Roman Empire, began only when Augustus defeated Marc Antony in the Battle of Actium. When the North ravaged the South in the American Civil War, it caused the seemingly intractable conflict that claimed three quarters of a million lives over four years to fade away. 
The South, knowing it was defeated, never made trouble again. German and Japanese ill-will toward Western democracies in World War II rapidly dissipated, thanks to the bitter pill of defeat; friendship soon followed.
Today's conventional wisdom holds that conflicts are best resolved through negotiation and compromise. But let's look at the facts. After 40 years of negotiations to reunite Cyprus, the island remains divided, and 60 years of standoff over the Korean peninsula have achieved little. 
In Syria, the killing continues unabated despite five years of talks to reconcile Sunnis and Alawites. And at the same time, years of diplomatic efforts to roll back Iran's nuclear program ended with the West's capitulation to Tehran's demands.

Why Are So Many Conservatives, Preppers And Christians Moving To The Northwest?
Thousands of Americans are flocking to "Big Sky" country, and this movement has become so prominent that it has even caught the attention of the mainstream media. Within the last several weeks, both The Chicago Tribune and The Economist have done major articles on this phenomenon.
From all over the country, conservatives, preppers and Bible-believing Christians are moving to Montana, Wyoming, Idaho and the eastern portions of Oregon and Washington. As you will see below, this region has become known as the "American Redoubt", and for a variety of reasons it is considered by many survivalists to be one of the top "safe zones" for when things really start falling apart in this nation.
Many of you that are reading this article may think that it is quite strange that families are quitting their jobs, packing up everything they own and moving to the middle of nowhere, but for those that are doing it this actually make perfect sense.

'Devout' Roman Catholic Tim Kaine Butchers the Bible and Embraces Gay Radicalism
Speaking at the Human Rights Campaign's annual Washington, DC dinner, Democratic vice-presidential nominee Tim Kaine butchered the Bible and made one of the most twisted arguments for same-sex "marriage" that you'll ever hear. Yet the very article laying out his arguments described him as a "devout" Roman Catholic. How can this be?
Putting aside the obvious question of how Kaine could serve on a presidential ticket with the radically pro-abortion candidate Hillary Clinton - indeed, he has already been challenged for "saying he is both a 'traditional Catholic' and a strong supporter of abortion" - Kaine raised further eyebrows when suggesting that the Catholic Church could one day change its position on same-sex "marriage," just as he has done.
In support of his viewpoint, he cited Pope Francis's oft-quoted comment about gay Catholics ("Who am I to judge?"), failing to realize that the Pope was not sanctioning homosexual acts and relationships but rather saying, "If someone is same-sex attracted and wants to be part of the Church, who am I to judge?"
This is very different from saying, "If two men are in love and want to have a romantic and sexual relationship, who am I to judge?"
But I am not a Catholic, nor can I predict where the Roman Catholic Church will be in 5 or 50 years.

Tampons in the Men's Room and the Latest Campus Madness
Parents, think twice before sending your kids off to school. Some campuses are better than others, and your kids are anything but guinea pigs to be thrown into the latest social experiment.
Brown University, located in Providence Rhode Island, was founded by Baptist leaders in 1764 with the Latin motto In Deo Speramus, in God we hope. 
I imagine these godly founders would be quite surprised with the recent announcement that, "Brown University's student body president will be hand-delivering menstrual products to all nonresidential bathrooms on campus, including men's rooms, with the help of 20 other students."
As reported by Sydney Hutchison on CampusReform.org, "The initiative is intended to communicate the message that 'pads and tampons are a necessity, not a luxury,' and that not all people who menstruate are women."
So there are menstruating men who need tampons?
And note that this is being done by Viet Nguyen, President of the Undergraduate Council of Students, who hopes that by "putting menstrual products in women's, men's, and gender-inclusive bathrooms" the school can "'set a tone of trans-inclusivity, and not forget that they're an important part of the population.'"

UC Berkeley Offers Class in Erasing Jews From Israel, Destroying Jewish State
Typically, in the leftist-dominated university, the prevailing paradigm of the Arab-Israeli conflict is that Israel is the last bastion of British imperialism and needs to be eradicated, with every Jew either thrown into the sea or sent back to Europe, even if their families have been living in the land of Israel for 1,000 years.
I, for one, am not upset that the University of California, Berkeley is offering an anti-Israel course so biased that it mocks the very purpose of a university.
So, the new course offering at Berkeley should be praised, not condemned, for publicly announcing that its goal is to explore how Israel might be destroyed. This is incredibly refreshing, a peeling away of the sensitivity and compassionate newspeak that so shelter the reality of universities as cesspools of leftist propaganda.
And who better to be the faculty sponsor of the course than Cals own Dr. Hatem Bazian. In the current environment at Cal, Bazian is the poster child for what an academic should be, a person who departs from the norms of dispassionate scholarship and replaces them with the Marxist vision of praxis, the unity of theory and practice.
Bazian has impeccable credentials for this role, credentials earned not by merely sitting through preliminary examinations and writing a scholarly dissertation, but through his activism. Bazian is co-founder of the militant Students for Justice in Palestine, an organization so virulently anti-Israel that it can shut down any speaker it disagrees with on almost any campus even before you could enunciate the monosyllabic word Jew.

Returning Home: Terrorists Present Immediate Threat
Now trained in the methods and operations of terror attacks on civilians, Western security agencies are bracing themselves for an influx of extremists returning home and uncharted territory about how to keep track of them all.
The support of U.S. and Russian-led bombings of Iraqi, Syrian and other ground forces are fast unseating the terror group from its territorial footholds. With the growing success on the ground comes the chaotic disbursement of refugees seeking safety and asylum as well as the return of radicals to their home nations. 
Now, trained in the methods and operations of terror attacks on civilians, Western security agencies are bracing themselves for an influx of extremists and uncharted territory about how to keep track of them all.
According to reports by Newsweek, nearly 30,000 foreign extremists that joined the fight are still in Syria and Iraq. As the terror network loses ground, a wave of radicals is expected to return to their country of origin. 
Reports have surfaced that, out of an estimated 850 who have traveled to support the reign of terror since 2014, nearly "400 British Islamic State fanatics have returned to the UK after fighting with the terror group in the Middle East".

America's Shifting Religious Trends
The United States is often referred to in religious circles as 'Christian America'. Many statistics would seem to back this up including the most recent ABCNEWS/Beliefnet poll, which showed that 83 percent of Americans identify themselves as Christians.
Those indicating no religion were 13 percent, which leaves just 4 percent as adherents of all non-Christian religions combined -- Jews, Muslims, Buddhists and others.
An analysis of the poll results co-authored by Gary Langer contrasts these findings with the world at large: 52 percent of the world's population is non-Christian, compared to 4 percent in the United States; and one-third is Christian, compared to 83 percent in the United States. 
It is interesting to note that only 37 percent of all professing Christians describe themselves as born-again or evangelical; that includes nearly half of all Protestants (47 percent), as well as a small share (14 percent) of Catholics.
What about the growth or decline of Christianity in America? Tyler ONeill, in a review for pjmedia.com, states that there are indications a revival of Christianity is underway.
O'Neill bases his conclusion on the results of a recent study by the Pew Research Center. Findings include the following:

Progressively Regressive Sexuality: A Return to Pagan Morality
How often have you heard sexual progressives claim that those of us who hold to traditional sexual morality and marriage are "on the wrong side of history?" But as one new book points out, it's the proponents of the sexual revolution who are embracing a sexual morality that history left behind millennia ago--in the dusty ruins of the Roman Forum.
Yes, today Western civilization is undergoing a dramatic cultural shift. In just a few short years our society has fundamentally altered the meaning of marriage, embraced the notion that men can become women, and is now promoting the idea that grown men should be welcome to share a bathroom with women and young girls. Not unexpectedly, we're also seeing movement toward the normalization of polygamy, pedophilia, and incest.
It's precisely in times like this that we need some historical perspective. Which is why Lutheran pastor Matthew Rueger's new book, "Sexual Morality in a Christless World," is a timely godsend. In it, Rueger shows how Christian sexual morality rocked the pagan world of ancient Rome. The notions of self-giving love, sexual chastity, and marital fidelity were foreign, even shocking to the people of that time.

Golan Heights Set To Become Flashpoint Between Israel & Hezbollah
Israel is concerned about Hezbollah's build-up in Syria, namely using the chaos of the conflict to acquire so-called 'game-changing weapons,' but also its entrenchment opposite the Israeli-held Golan Heights. Israel calls this it's 'red line' in Syria and has even raised its concerns over this with Moscow.
Well into its fifth year, the Syrian civil war continues to show no signs of dissipating. While the conflict has drawn in a number of regional and global powers including the U.S., Russia, Turkey and Iran, Israel has largely remained on the sidelines. Yet for the Jewish state, the conflict does have profound consequences, notably from the threat stemming from Iran and its Lebanese terror proxy Hezbollah.
Hezbollah is in the final stages of launching "large-scale" operations in the Quneitra in the Golan Heights region in southern Syria, a Sept. 5 report from the Iranian semi-official Fars News Agency shows.
"The Syrian army and Hezbollah fighters have been working on a joint plan to end militancy in Southern Syria, particularly near the Golan Heights," the report states. "Hezbollah has deployed a large number of its forces at Quneitra passage which has connected the Syrian territories to the occupied Golan."
David Daoud, research analyst at the Foundation for the Defense of Democracies (FDD), told JNS.org the situation along the Golan Heights was "troubling."

September 30th - Beginning Of The End For Free Speech On The Net?
The first step toward the global suppression of free speech on the Internet will take place at midnight on September 30, when the Obama administration cedes control of the World Wide Web to foreign interests.
L. Gordon Crovitz of The Washington Post has penned two pieces outlining the collision course of American free speech. The first, "Stop Obama's Internet Giveaway" in March, 2016, and a recent follow-up piece called "An Internet Giveaway to the U.N." discuss the potential fallout of not preventing President Obama from allowing a government contract with the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) to expire.

Genetic Manipulation - The New Weapon Of Mass Destruction
Biological warfare is a frightening possibility that has recently become more accessible and, potentially, far more powerful due to recent advances in genetic manipulation called CRISPR. Director of National Intelligence James Clapper cited genetic manipulation as a threat to national security, adding genetic manipulation to the list of threats of weapons of mass destruction.
Early this year, Director of National Intelligence James Clapper cited genetic manipulation made possible by the new technique as a threat to national security, adding genetic manipulation to the list of threats of weapons of mass destruction.

America's Obesity Epidemic: At Least 1 Out Of Every 5 People Are Obese
The United States officially has an obesity crisis. According to a brand new report that was just released by the Trust for America's Health, at least one out of every five people meet the clinical definition for obesity in all 50 states. And remember, being obese is different from being overweight.

Big Brother's Eye In The Sky - Persistent Surveillance Systems
We may still have some expectation of privacy while we are in our homes, but when outside under a clear sky, there is no longer any assurance that we are not being watched, thanks to a new surveillance system being employed by the police in some cities.
First developed for the US military to monitor Iraqi cities and track those who were planting explosive devices, the technology has now been improved and applied to domestic law enforcement. 
Far removed from a circling police helicopter called out for a dangerous pursuit, this system mounts a specially designed 192 mega pixel wide-angle camera array together with digital recording. It has caused a quantum leap in urban surveillance that allows police to record up to ten hours of footage that covers nearly an entire city.

Russia Prepares For Next War
In a series of provocative moves that seem designed to threaten war, Russia continues to modernize its military, increase military production capacity, build new atomic bunkers and conduct large-scale military drills.
Russia's recent invasion of Crimea, which went largely unanswered from the United States and the rest of Europe, must be seen as a stark warning of what is to come. 
For neighboring countries such as Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania, a resurgent Russia building and flexing its military muscle is a grave threat as Putin gradually works to expand Russia's sphere of power.

Millennials & The Church: What To Expect From The Next Generation 
Can a church survive without young people?' Millennials comprise 20 percent of the entire U.S. population with 83 million people -- even more than Baby Boomers -- and by 2020 this figure will grow to 30 percent.
It is commonly said that the youth - also primarily referred to by the term 'Millennials' - are the future of the church. It has also been said that the youth are not just its future but its present - at the very core of the church and its current vibrancy. 
Whichever the case, are there any indications of what role these Millennials will play in the church after the present generation? Or how the church will eventually shape them?

Iran: The Return of Ahmadinejad
Iran's former president, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, saying he wants to "redefine revolutionary ideals" set up by the leader of Iran's 1979 Islamic revolution, Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini, appears to be launching a campaign to run in the upcoming Iranian presidential elections, in February, 2017.
Ahmadinejad was well-known for his incendiary and provocative speeches, which included denying the Holocaust. At the end of his presidential term, from 2005 to 2013, his approval rating was extremely low, and he managed to drive away most constituents across political spectrum, including the topmost hardline leaders. He also became the first Iranian president since 1979 to be summoned by the parliament (Majlis) to answer questions regarding his activities and policies.

Men Without Work: Millions Missing From The Workforce
Why are so many men in their prime working years unemployed? The Obama administration would have us believe that unemployment is low in this country, but that is not true at all. In fact, one author quoted by NPR says that "it's kind of worse than it was in the depression in 1940.
They aren't employed and they aren't considered to be looking for employment either, and so they don't show up in the official unemployment numbers.  But they don't have jobs, and nothing the Obama administration does can eliminate that fact.
According to NPR, "nearly 100 percent of men between the ages of 25 and 54 worked" in the 1960s.

Human Microchip Implants Gaining Greater Acceptance
Once used for tracking pets and livestock, human microchip implants are now moving away from the fringe and becoming more mainstream. There are now an estimated 10,000 people with RFID implants embedded in their bodies capable of sending out signals, but the rate of implantation has now begun to increase rapidly.
So why has a technology used to track and control animal populations now gained more widespread, and voluntary, adoption among young people around the world?
The first answer is convenience. In the same way that we agree to unlimited monitoring of our private communications through social media and cellphone networks in exchange for the convenience, people are beginning to prefer the advantages of simply waving a hand near a sensor to open a door or turn on the lights.
