Erdogan: 'Ask Allah to restore the al-Aksa'
Published: 4 days ago
Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has called on his countrymen to refocus on the Ottoman goal of re-conquering Jerusalem for Islam and uniting Shia and Sunni tribes for that same mission.

In a speech that got almost no coverage in the Western media, Erdogan talked about invading and reconquering Jerusalem, according to an article in the Anadolu Agency of Turkey.
“We Muslims lost our aim to head towards Jerusalem,” he told throngs of adoring Turks while in the state of Erzincan in central Turkey, according to a translation by Walid Shoebat. “The water of our eyes froze making us blind, and our hearts that was destined to beat for Jerusalem is now instead conditioned for rivalry being in a state of war with each other.”
Erdogan was in the city to promote numerous service projects, but the speech focused on Jerusalem.
“When you mention the word ascension, the first thing that comes to mind is Jerusalem and al-Aqsa Mosque,” he said, referring to the mosque that sits on the Temple Mount.
The Mount is controlled by Arab Muslim Waqf officials, who do not allow Jews to pray except at the Western Wall. But apparently Erdogan is not satisfied with this arrangement. He told his countrymen to ask “Allah to restore the Al-Aqsa Mosque to be re-owned by Muslims.”
Erdogan has ruled Turkey for 13 years, but the increasingly vitriolic nature of his anti-Israel rhetoric proves he has consolidated his power over the less strident Islamist views of Fethullah Gulen, a Turk who operates 120 publicly funded charter schools across the United States, says Joel Richardson, a Christian filmmaker and author of the New York Times-best-seller, “The Islamic Antichrist.”
With Erdogan’s rhetoric coming unhinged, Richardson says the Turkish government led by him and Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoğlu has essentially become the Turkish wing of the Muslim Brotherhood.

“The old form of moderate Turkish Islam has been defeated,” he said.
“They have become the leaders of the Turkish branch of Muslim Brotherhood, and now that the rhetoric coming out of the leaders of the regime is increasingly becoming identical to the inflammatory statements coming out of Iran and even al-Qaida,” Richardson said.
Richardson said Turkey and Iran are natural enemies, but the views of their respective leaders have converged at a commonplace of darkness – Jew hatred. One represents Shia Islam and the other Sunni, but they agree on one thing: Israel must be removed, cut out like a cancerous tumor.
Both are openly anti-Semitic, but Richardson sees Turkey as Israel’s ultimate enemy. Whereas most Bible prophecy teachers have been warning of a revived Roman empire, Richardson has his eye on the re-emergence of the Ottoman Empire, which crumbed in the aftermath of World War I. It’s a theme he discusses in detail in both of his books, “Islamic Antichrist” and “Mideast Beast,” and in his documentary, “End Times Eyewitness.”
“For years, I’ve been warning of a last days’ revival of the Ottoman Empire, and there’s no question that it continues to move in that direction,” Richardson said.
The acclaimed documentary film “End Times Eyewitness” explores what Christian, Muslim and Jewish leaders in the Middle East are saying about the times in which we live, the prospect of rebuilding the Jewish Temple and the return of a messianic figure in the last days. It’s available in the WND Superstore.

“This is more than just political rhetoric (by Erdogan). We have to remember that the Ottoman Turks controlled Jerusalem for close to 500 years, and there really is this increasing return of the Ottoman aspirations to control the region once again,” he said. “And that means not only Jerusalem but also Mecca and Medina. They’re pretending to form an alliance with Saudi Arabia against Iran and its nuclear program, but Turkey and Saudi Arabia don’t like each other at all. Much of the Islamic world thinks that the Saudi government is just a creation of Western powers. And the whole monarchy thing has no basis in Islamic law.”
The geopolitical landscape as described in the last days by the Hebrew prophets is coming into focus like never before, Richardson said.
“The prophets Joel, Zachariah and Ezekiel all described the surrounded nations gathering together against Jerusalem in the last days,” he said. “Five years ago, it was inconceivable to think the president of Turkey would be talking about the need for the Turks to regain control of Jerusalem.”
With the Middle East and North Africa rapidly devolving into chaos, Turkey bears watching. As a traditional ally of the United States, it will be given freer rein to maneuver and exploit that chaos. Richardson paints a scenario where Turkey will eventually go to war with Egypt, and those two countries have increasingly been at odds since the Muslim Brotherhood government of Muhammad Morsi was defeated in Egypt.
Saudi Arabia has sparred with Iran in Yemen, Syria remains on fire with civil war, and multiple terrorist groups are vying for control of Libya. Erdogan sees all this and believes this state of war has clouded the vision of Muslims from their true aspiration of marching on Jerusalem.
The Turkish president called on citizens to “raise their hands in supplication for this blessed night toward Allah to restore the Al-Aqsa Mosque [Jerusalem] to be re-owned by Muslims, and to remove the mist from their eyes, to see Jerusalem in their hands at every moment and at every opportunity.”
Erdogan has compared himself to Tariq Bin Ziad, who conquered Spain, Alp Arslan and Saladin.
“These are the Muslim leaders who fought Christendom, and Saladin was the one who conquered Jerusalem,” noted the blog Israel, Islam and the End Times. “He wants to declare war on the strongest fortresses to advance his foreign God, Allah, through warfare.”
“Khalifat (Caliph) literally is one who rules the world and now Erdogan wants to fulfill Zechariah 12 and 14 where Jerusalem becomes the ‘cup of trembling’ to ‘all surrounding nations’ when they storm against Jerusalem to annihilate all Israel.”

International community can't handle surging dollar, new rise in interest rates
Published: 1 day ago
NEW YORK – With the Obama administration issuing rosy economic reports that WND has reported are based on manipulated statistics designed to show GDP growth at 5 percent and unemployment at under 6 percent, economists worry about the impact of the end of the Federal Reserve’s Quantitative Easing, the buying of U.S. Treasury debt.

“America’s closed economy can handle a surging dollar and a fresh cycle of rising interest rates. Large parts of the world cannot. That in a nutshell is the story of 2015,” warned Ambrose Evans-Pritchard, the well-respected International Business Editor of the Telegraph in London.

“Tightening by the U.S. Federal Reserve will have turbo-charged effects on a global financial system addicted to zero rates and dollar liquidity.”
Supporting his concern, yields on 2-year U.S. Treasuries have surged from 0.31pc to 0.74pc since October, and this is the driver of currency markets.
Under the leadership of Federal Reserve chair Janet Yellen, the Fed has engaged in a “pivot,” shifting concern from stimulating job growth to worrying about inflation, with the concern that without a tightening in Federal Reserve monetary policy, the U.S. economy could experience inflation as high as 5 percent in the next two years, a level not experienced in the U.S. economy since 2005.

In October 2014, the Fed under Yellen’s direction ended the policy of Quantitative Easing under which the Federal Reserve had purchased $85 billion in Treasury bonds every month in 2013, the culmination of what turned out to be 37 consecutive months in a row during which the Federal Reserve bought Treasury debt in an effort to stimulate the economy by keeping interest rates at or near zero.

Under the QE bond-buying spree, the Federal Reserve balance sheet ballooned to a record $4.48 trillion accumulated since announcing the first round of QE purchases in November 2008 just as outgoing President George W. Bush tried to deal with a systemic financial markets collapse.
The moves then helped propel Barack Obama into the White House as the housing market bubble fueled by speculative mortgages issued below investment grade collapsed.

Yellen assumed the Fed chair on Jan. 6, 2014, determined to “taper” QE borrowing down to zero by the end of 2014, a goal Yellen achieved last October.

WND has repeatedly warned that a massive downward stock market collapse in the United States could trigger an international stock market downward adjustment if interest rates begin to rise in the wake of discontinuing the Fed policy of QE Treasury debt-buying.
With the Dow Jones Industrial Average topping 18,000 for the first time ever at the end of 2014, savvy investors are asking whether the U.S. economy is headed toward a bad case of déjà vu.

After 9/11, Greenspan and the Federal Reserve began cutting interest rates aggressively in an effort to jump-start a badly shocked U.S. economy back into robust activity.
“For a full year and a half after September 11, 2001, we were in limbo,” Greenspan wrote in his 2007 book “The Age of Turbulence: Adventures in a New World.”

“The economy managed to expand, but its growth was uncertain and weak. Businesses and investors felt besieged,” Greenspan wrote.
Greenspan was open about monetary policy during this time.
“The Fed’s response to all this uncertainty was to maintain our program of aggressively lowering short-term interest rates,” he wrote.
Under Greenspan’s direction the FOMC extended a series of seven cuts made in early 2001 to lower the fed funds rates down to around 1.25 percent by the end of 2002, a figure Greenspan admits “most of us would have considered unfathomably low a decade before.”

Greenspan admitted that the Fed was aware maintaining these low interest rates “might foster a bubble, an inflationary boom of some sort, which we would subsequently have to address,” but he claimed the Fed was worried the economic slowdown after 9/11 might cause deflation, a worry of professional economists around the world after experiencing the deflation that plagued the Great Depression of the 1930s.
As 2007 came to a close, Greenspan was a hero on Wall Street.
Investors who had made billions of dollars hailed Greenspan’s low interest policy as the key to engineering an unprecedented surge of wealth on Wall Street.
At the close of 2007, those warning that the economy had peaked and the real estate bubble had already burst were being received as prophets of doom whose ill tidings risked spoiling the party.
As 2008 began, pundits were predicting the DJIA would climb past 15,000 without much difficulty.

Unfortunately, such optimism was unfounded, as Greenspan and the Fed managed the federal funds rate up from a low of 1 percent in May 2004 to a plateau of 5 percent maintained for a year, from the last quarter of 2006 until approximately the last quarter of 2007, when Greenspan and the Fed began lowering rates in fear the upward adjustment violated the Goldilocks rule in being “too much” instead of “just right.”
In December 2007, few realized that month would later be identified as the official start of the most severe economic downturn in U.S. history since the Great Depression of the 1930s.
