The Mystery of the Stuxnet Worm

September 30, 2010

As my husband will tell you, I am not a computer expert by any means. I know how to use    Microsoft Office and E-mail and maybe a few more applications. That’s it.

I even learned the hard way that computers get infected with all kinds of different bugs, such as viruses and worms.

A computer virus is a computer program that can copy itself and infect a computer. The term “virus” is sometimes used as a catch-all phrase to include all types of malware, like spyware programs that do not have the ability to reproduce.

A true virus can spread from one computer to another; when it is sent over a network or the Internet, or carried it on a removable USB drive. Some viruses can also reproduce themselves.

I am told that viruses are sometimes also confused with worms and Trojan horses, which are technically different. A worm can exploit security vulnerabilities to spread itself automatically to other computers through networks, while a Trojan horse is a program that appears harmless but hides malicious functions. Worms and Trojan horses, like viruses, may harm a computer system’s data or performance.

Now we hear that a powerful virus has shut down Iran’s nuclear facility. It’s a curious thing. Iran confirmed last Sunday that its nuclear program has been affected by a mysterious computer virus. The virus is called Stuxnet worm. Here is where I get confused. Is it now a virus or a worm or are they both the same in the computer world?

They say that this new Stuxnet worm has been popping up in industrial plants and personal computers worldwide, and is now posing a looming threat over Iran, where more than 60 percent of the computers infected with the virus are located.

According to Iran’s state-run Mehr news agency, the IP addresses of 30,000 or more  computer
systems have been infected by the worm. If indeed that many computers in Iran have been infected,
the worm may one day simultaneously shut down all the factories in Iran, including water plants,
power plants, bakeries, refineries etc. - To get that damage the virus works by specifically
attacking a piece of Siemens software running on Windows computers in industrial operations
ranging from electric grids and traffic lights to factories and power plants.
German experts claim to have uncovered evidence that Iran didn't even bother licensing the Siemens 
software that the worm/virus hijacked. So they can't call Siemens to complain!

Since Iran has suffered most of the infections, questions have been raised about whether the virus is connected to western governments’ top secret sabotage campaign against Tehran’s nuclear program. Some experts believe that virus, first discovered in June, was developed by high-level government programmers (possibly from the US, Israel, or Germany), and is directed toward a specific target, most likely Iran’s Bushehr nuclear power plant. It is believed to have been around for over a year.

The mysterious country which produced this virus immobilized Iran’s nuclear plant without ever firing a shot. Wow, that’s really clever!

Wake Up – Before Your Freedom Is Gone!

September 1, 2010

It seems that today’s world is taken hostage and ruled by godless people who are controlled by Satan. You became a victim without knowing, because these people have told you lies. Many of you have opened your doors wide and welcomed them into your society and its government. Many in the West are ignorant and blind to what is happening in the world today. You have opened your doors and invited the enemy into your houses, businesses and churches. Without knowing you are destroying everything your forefathers fought for, including the future of your children and grandchildren. They will rob you of the things you value. They will take your possessions and money. They will force your children to pray in mosques, and they will no longer have anything to say.

Well – you say – don’t Muslims worship the same G-d as the Jews and Christians?

The origin of Islam goes back to the spiritual ruler of Ur (Ge.12:1), the moon god and supreme deity of the entire Babylonian empire. Al-llah is Arabic for “the god”, corresponding to the Babylonian “Baal”. Muslims claim that Allah was the biblical G-D of the patriarchs, prophets, and apostles. – Was “Allah” really the biblical G-D or was he a pagan god in Arabia during pre- Islamic times? The Arabs worshipped 360 gods at the Kaabah in Mecca, with the Moon-god as the chief deity. Mecca was in fact built as a shrine for the moon god. Muhammad chose the moon god to be the only god, thus putting previous heathenism into a monotheistic form.

When compared with the Jewish and Christian scriptures, the teachings of Quran show that Allah is not the same G-D worshipped by Jews and Christians.

The Jewish Bible says in Deuteronomy 6:4-5: “Sh’ma, Yisra’el! Adonai Eloheinu, Adonai Echad; and you are to love Adonai your G-D with all your heart, all your being and all your resources.“ In Leviticus 19:18: “Don’t take vengeance on or bear a grudge against any of your people; rather, love your neighbor as yourself: I am Adonai.”

Compare this with the Christian Bible. Mark 12:29-30 “Sh’ma Yisrael, Adonai,Eloheinu, Adonai Echad, and you are to love Adonai your G-D with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your understanding and with all your strength, this is the first commandment.” Mark 12:31 “And a second one is this. You are to love your neighbor as yourself.”

The G-D of the Jews and the Christians is the G-D of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. He encourages freedom, love, forgiveness, prosperity and health.

In the Koran these verses are nowhere to be found. The Muslim god values the opposite.

The personalities of each god are evident in the cultures, civilizations and dispositions of the peoples that serve them. Muhammad’s central message was submission; the central message of the Bible is love. These Gods have opposite personalities.

You can hear “Allahu akbar” shouted daily from the minaretts. Most translate it as “God is great.” The Arabic word for great is ”kabir.” Allahu akbar means: “God is greater.” Greater than who? Greater than the G-d of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob? – Who said this before? “I will scale the heavens, I will raise my throne above G-d’s stars. I will sit on the Mount of Assembly far in the north. I will rise past the tops of the clouds, I will make myself like the Most High.” (Isaiah 14:13-14) – You can draw your own conclusions as to who Allah is!

Islam divides the world into 2 domains:

  1. Dar al Salaam (the house of peace) – all Muslims
  2. Dar al Harb (the house of war) – all non-Muslims

 Islam teaches that there cannot be peace until the house of peace rules, which means that all non-Muslims either become Muslims or are killed. The very word Islam means submission.

Islam has been a violent and military movement from its beginning. The current attitude of Arab and Islamic countries towards Jews dates back to the life of Mohammed, who conducted 74 military campaigns, 24 of them personally. He unified the Arab tribes with war and assassinated or exiled Jews, therefore setting precedent for the militant and anti-Jewish practices of Islam.

The reason Mohammed was so violently anti-Jewish was because he originally saw himself as a prophet to the Jews, Christians, and pagans of Arabia. In his early reign he instructed his followers to bow down and pray to Jerusalem! The Jews of Arabia rejected him as a Hebrew prophet and he was almost killed in battle with them. He then changed the direction of prayer to Mecca.

In Syria Moslem fathers make their son’s swear, “I will kill a Jew before I die.” In 1947 Arab mobs in Aleppo devastated the 2,500-year-old Jewish community. Many Jews were killed and thousands of Jews illegally fled Syria to go to Israel. Today there are less than 150 Jews left.

Mohammed’s intention was the unification of the Arab tribes and their international expansion. State and religion are not seen as separate entities, nor can an individual dissent from the Quran.

 
 

Islam has never been just a religion in the traditional sense – Islam is seen as a political organization, which has no boundaries. This was the intent of Mohammed in the establishment of the Umma, the community or brotherhood. Western culture perceives this to be their statement of equality for mankind, but it must be remembered; if you are not Moslem you are not equal.

 Professor Moshe Sharon of the Hebrew University in Jerusalem writes: “Islam was born with the idea that it should rule the world … Judaism speaks about national salvation – namely that at the end of the story, when the world becomes a better place, Israel will be in its own land, ruled by its own king and serving G-d. Christianity speaks about the idea that every single person in the world can be saved from his sins, while Islam speaks about ruling the world … quoting a verse in English … ‘Allah sent Mohammed with the true religion so that it should rule over all the religions.’ The idea, then, is not that the whole world would become a Muslim world at this time, but that the whole world would be subdued under the rule of Islam … Wherever you have Islam, you will have war. It grows out of the attitude of Islamic civilization.

In Islamic societies where Jews and Christians are allowed to exist they do not have the same rights as a Moslem, and they are required to pay a special tax.

The West needs to understand that there are no moderate Muslims. As mentioned above, the ultimate goal of Islam is to establish a global Islamic state over the entire world, on the rubble of every civilization, every constitution and every government, as crazy as this may sound. Their plan is to destroy the U.S. and Western civilization from within “so that it is eliminated and Allah’s religion is made victorious over all other religions.” (Mosab Yousef)

“This is not a doctrine of some freak Muslim,” Yousef observed. “It’s the doctrine, the requirement, of the god of Islam himself and his prophet, whom they praise every day.”

There is no freedom of religion in Islam, but the defenders of the proposed Ground Zero mosque cite American Muslims’ First Amendment freedoms to practice their religion.

Yousef makes a distinction between Islam and other religions, arguing Islam is a subversive system that threatens America’s very existence. – Your freedom will be gone.

Wake up before it is too late.
