Is Jerusalem About to Explode?

October 30, 2009 | From

New round of violence erupts on the Temple Mount.

During his speech before the United Nations General Assembly last month, President Barack Obama called on the State of Israel to end the “occupation” that began in 1967—using the same term many of Israel’s enemies rely on to denounce any Jewish presence in the West Bank and Jerusalem. Since that time, Arab-Israeli tensions have escalated noticeably—particularly around the Temple Mount in Jerusalem.

On Sunday, for example, a wall of Israeli riot police clashed with Palestinian protesters near the al-Aqsa mosque, after Muslim authorities and Arab media outlets called on Palestinians to defend the compound against “Jewish conquest.” An Arab-Israeli Knesset member has even hinted that Israel is using archaeological excavations to sabotage the Temple Mount so that Jews might eventually build a synagogue where the al-Aqsa mosque has been standing for 1,400 years.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu angrily dismissed these accusations as baseless “lies” that were aimed at fomenting violence and division.

An eerily similar storyline played out in September 2000 soon after the peace process collapsed at Camp David. In that version, Yasser Arafat used Prime Minister Ariel Sharon’s visit to the Temple Mount as grounds for a Palestinian uprising that became known as the second intifada. Arafat, however, called his war the al-Aqsa intifada in hopes of rallying Arab forces to capture Jerusalem.

In this chapter, Arafat’s successor Mahmoud Abbas has warned of a “religious war” unless Israel stops all “provocative” acts. In a speech on Wednesday, Abbas said “the fanning of flames by Israeli extremists has caused the dangerous situation which currently prevails in Jerusalem.”

On this issue, Abbas’s fiery rhetoric falls right in line with his Palestinian enemies in Gaza. Nothing unites Palestinians quite like Jewish “provocations.”

“The Israelis want to divide al-Aqsa Mosque,” the Damascus-based Hamas leader Khaled Mashaal said earlier this week. “They want to hold their religious ceremonies in the mosque … in preparation for demolishing it and building their temple there.” Jerusalem’s fate, Mashaal predicted, will be determined by “confrontation,” not negotiation.

On that last point, he happens to be right. For the day is coming, the Prophet Zechariah warned, that half the city of Jerusalem “shall go forth into captivity” by some kind of violent struggle (see Zechariah 14:1-2).

Ever since the Camp David accords, Israel has negotiated one peace proposal after another that included giving the Palestinians half of Jerusalem for free. But because of Zechariah’s prophecy, for the past several years, we have been preparing our readers for Israel’s government to swing to the right regarding Jerusalem. That, of course, happened earlier this year with the election of Benjamin Netanyahu, who campaigned on the promise of keeping Jerusalem united.

“With a right-wing coalition now in power in Israel,” we wrote in April, “that brings us one giant prophetic leap closer to the inevitable clash over Jerusalem.” Now, it appears, the Arab-Israeli peace process is on the verge of collapsing.

Of course, there’s always the chance that the latest round of violence over Jerusalem may be a strategic maneuver ordered by Iran in hopes of diverting attention away from its nuclear program.

Either way, it’s building toward an inevitable explosion in Jerusalem. Whether it’s a momentary diversion or the beginning of another intifada, this recent eruption of violence outside the al-Aqsa Mosque, as the Times of London wrote earlier this week, “has repercussions that go far beyond Israeli-Palestinian relations.”

Even though sparked by conspiracy theories on the Arab street, and then inflamed by Palestinian stone-throwers on the Temple Mount, still, as the Times intones, “From Cairo to Jakarta, Muslims will be enraged by the sight of Israeli security forces imposing authority at Islam’s third-holiest site” (emphasis added).

Whatever the cause, Israel’s riot police firing rubber bullets at Palestinian youths on the Temple Mount will eliminate what little support remains for Israel across the region

The Zechariah 14:2 explosion is coming.

This 4th grade teacher has said it all, and she was
brave enough to attach her name to it.

The White House
1600 Pennsylvania Avenue NW
Washington , DC 20500

Mr. Obama:
I have had it with you and your
administration, sir.. Your conduct on your recent trip overseas has
convinced me that you are not an adequate representative of the
United States of America collectively or of me personally.

You are so obsessed with appeasing the
Europeans and the Muslim world that you have abdicated the
responsibilities of the President of the United States of America .
You are responsible to the citizens of the United States . You are
not responsible to the peoples of any other country on earth.

I personally resent that you go around the
world apologizing for the United States telling Europeans that we
are arrogant and do not care about their status in the world. Sir,
what do you think the First World War and the Second World War were
all about if not the consideration of the peoples of Europe ? Are
you brain dead? What do you think the Marshall Plan was all about?
Do you not understand or know the history of the 20th century?

Where do you get off telling a Muslim country
that the United States does not consider itself a Christian
country? Have you not read the Declaration of Independence or the
Constitution of the United States ? This country was founded on
Judeo-Christian ethics and the principles governing this country, at
least until you came along, come directly from this heritage. Do you
not understand this?

Your bowing to the king of Saudi Arabia is
an affront to all Americans. Our President does not bow down to
anyone, let alone the king of Saudi Arabia . You didn't show Great
Britain , our best and one of our oldest allies, the respect they
deserve yet you bow down to the king of Saudi Arabia . How dare
you, sir! How dare you!

You cannot find the time to visit the graves
of our greatest generation because you do not want to offend the
Germans but make time to visit a mosque in Turkey . You offended our
dead and every veteran when you give the Germans more respect than
the people who saved the German people from themselves. What’s the
matter with you? I am convinced that you and the members of your
administration hav e the historical and intellectual depth of a mud
puddle and should be ashamed of yourselves, all of you.

You are so self-righteously offended by the
big bankers and the American automobile manufacturers yet do nothing
about the real thieves in this situation, Mr. Dodd, Mr. Frank ,
Franklin Raines, Jamie Gorelic, the Fannie Mae bonuses, and the
Freddie Mac bonuses. What do you intend to do about them? Anything?
I seriously doubt it.

What about the U..S.. House members passing
out $9.1 million in bonuses to their staff members on top of the $2.5
million in automatic pay raises that lawmakers gave themselves? I
understand the average House aide got a 17% bonus. I took a 5% cut
in my pay to save jobs with my employer. You have not said anything
about that. Who authorized that? I surely did not!

Executives at Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac will
be receiving $210 million in bonuses over an eighteen-month period,
that's $45 million more than the AIG bonuses. In fact, Fannie and
Freddie executives have already been award ed $51 million not a bad
take. Who authorized that and why haven’t you expressed your outrage
at this group who are largely responsible for the economic mess we
have right now?

I resent that you take me and my fellow
citizens as brain-dead and not caring about what you idiots do. We
are watching what you are doing and we are getting increasingly fed
up with all of you.

I also want you to know that I personally
find just about everything you do and say to be offensive to every
one of my sensibilities. I promise you that I will work tirelessly
to see that you do not get a chance to spend two terms destroying my
beautiful country.

Every real American

Impeachment suggested to remove 'threats' to America
'Make no mistake. We're now in the middle of a bloodless coup'

Posted: October 08, 2009

By Bob Unruh


A political activist who was behind the famous Willie Horton advertisement that left Gov. Michael Dukakis' candidacy for president floundering and was among the first to sound the alarm on the need for Bill Clinton's impeachment says the United States is collapsing around its citizens right now, but there is a defense.

"Make no mistake. We're now in the middle of a bloodless coup – the takeover of an entire nation by the hate-America crowd – a cold-blooded gang that despises America's prosperity, our standing in the world, our trust in God and our generosity and goodness," says political activist Floyd Brown in a post on the new Impeach Obama Campaign website.

His suggested defense is nothing more or less than a strike at the emperor, plans which are detailed on the website.

"Like so many on the far-left before him, going all the way back to Karl Marx, he [Obama] believes that it's his mission to promote 'equality of outcome' over 'equality of opportunity' even if Americans must learn to live in chains to make it happen," Brown said. "That worldview makes Barack Hussein Obama a very dangerous man and one of the greatest threats to your personal liberty today."

Brown said that view also explains why Obama "has already gobbled-up major banks and why the government now controls more and more of our money – yours and mine. And if you wake up one day to discover you're broke, don't be surprised. Barack Hussein Obama is Bernie Madoff with the political power of the presidency at his disposal."

(Story continues below)

"That dangerous worldview explains why his attorney general, Eric Holder, despises the 2nd Amendment… And that dangerous worldview explains why Obama intends to take away your freedom to choose your own doctor …. Your own treatment," he said.

Brown said the only one solution to the problem he described as a "monomaniac."

"Article I, Section 4 of the Constitution reads: 'The President, Vice President and all civil officers of the United States, shall be removed from office on impeachment for, and conviction of, treason, bribery, or other high crimes and misdemeanors.'"

Brown told WND that first and foremost, "people need to believe that it's possible."

He recalls the campaign to impeach Bill Clinton was begun back in the 1990s when Congress was controlled by the Democrat Party and there was virtually no obvious support for the concept.

"But we were patient and we kept at it, and he was impeached," he said.

"We believe he [Obama] is not qualified to be president, he should have never been allowed to be president, and [impeachment] is the best process for resolving this situation," he said.

Brown said most people remember him for being behind the Horton ad, which highlighted the subsequent crimes of a felon released from prison under Dukakis' watch. He also was among the first to sound the alarm on the Clinton Whitewater scandal as well as the mysterious circumstances of the apparent suicide of White House Counsel Vince Foster.

In a WorldNetDaily column, Floyd and Mary Beth Brown write that the idea already is mushrooming among conservatives, such as those in the discussions on the Expose Obama website where Floyd Brown is a moderator.

"Radio-personality, Tammy Bruce may have captured these activists beliefs about Obama best: '... ultimately, it comes down to... the fact that he seems to have, it seems to me, some malevolence toward this country, which is unabated,'" she said, according to the Browns.

They argue Obama already is guilty of the "high crimes and misdemeanors" for which the U.S. Constitution provides impeachment as a penalty.

"Our Founding Fathers fully intended to allow for the removal of the president for actions which include: gross incompetence, negligence, and distasteful behavior," they wrote.

According to the Impeach Obama Campaign, Obama already has:

  • Lied to the American people when he said people could keep private insurance, knowing full well that his legislation would inevitably drive private insurers out of business.

  • Vindictively fired Inspector General Gerald Walpin, who investigated Kevin Johnson, a buddy of the president, for misuse of funds from an AmeriCorps grant.

  • Supervised the effective takeover by government of banks, the largest insurance company (AIG), and General Motors (GM) and Chrysler... the bulk of the U.S. auto industry, thus depriving bondholders, shareholders, and others of their property.

  • Pursued cap-and-trade legislation. It would in a manner of speaking tax the very air people exhale and give the government unprecedented control over the economy and American businesses.

  • Added a trillion dollars to the national debt in just a handful of weeks.

  • Appointed "Czars" to oversee everything from the closing of Guantanamo to the nation's food.

  • And finally, Obama has consistently refused to approve the release of his actual birth certificate, college transcripts and his medical records.

Since impeachment proceedings are handled by no one but Congress, Brown writes that it is important now for people to realize the impact of their votes in 2010, because that will determine the makeup of Congress, and very probably whether any impeachment against Obama could proceed.

Brown cited a key opinion from former President Gerald Ford, who while serving in the House of Representatives, said an impeachable offense was, "whatever a majority of the House of Representatives considers it to be at a given moment in history."

"Impeachment, as written in the Constitution, was tailor-made for Barack Hussein Obama and our Founders placed it in our Constitution for such a time as this," Brown said.

Brown cited his concerns over Obama's attitudes and behaviors, including:

  • When Obama said America is not a Christian nation.

  • When, in his book, Obama wrote of Muslims, "I will stand with them should the political winds shift in an ugly direction."

  • When the White House insisted the name of Jesus be covered before Obama could speak at Georgetown University.

  • When in 2009 Obama said, "You might say that America is a Muslim nation."

  • When he treated the Queen of England with casual familiarity, but bowed to King Abdullah of Saudi Arabia, where Muslims won't permit Christian worship under penalty of death.

WND has reported on dozens of legal challenges to Obama's status as a "natural born citizen." The Constitution, Article 2, Section 1, states, "No Person except a natural born Citizen, or a Citizen of the United States, at the time of the Adoption of this Constitution, shall be eligible to the Office of President."

Some of the lawsuits question whether he was actually born in Hawaii, as he insists. If he was born out of the country, Obama's American mother, the suits contend, was too young at the time of his birth to confer American citizenship to her son under the law at the time.

Other challenges have focused on Obama's citizenship through his father, a Kenyan subject to the jurisdiction of the United Kingdom at the time of his birth, thus making him a dual citizen. The cases contend the framers of the Constitution excluded dual citizens from qualifying as natural born.

Complicating the situation is Obama's decision to spend sums probably exceeding $1 million to avoid releasing an original long-form state birth certificate that would put to rest the questions.

WND also has reported that among the documentation not yet available for Obama includes his kindergarten records, Punahou school records, Occidental College records, Columbia University records, Columbia thesis, Harvard Law School records, Harvard Law Review articles, scholarly articles from the University of Chicago, passport, medical records, files from his years as an Illinois state senator, his Illinois State Bar Association records, any baptism records and his adoption records.
