What Will Happen In Egypt?

January 30, 2011

For the last few days we have been hearing about riots in the streets of Cairo threatening to oust President Hosni Mubarak from his 30 year reign as dictator of Egypt. 

The media makes us think this is a good thing because it’s all about fighting for democracy, however  the facts in Cairo are quite different.  The revolution started on Friday, encouraged by the Imams in the mosques. The protest for survival, that they can no longer afford the price of food and there are no jobs, has been put together with the Islamic propaganda they have listened to all their lives.

What the West needs to understand is that the ultimate goal of Islam is Muslim Imperialism. Muslims want to conquer the world for Islam to usher in a Caliphate—that is, a supreme totalitarian Islamic government that would forcibly impose Sharia law on everyone. So in a way , WWIII has already begun, but most people don’t know it.

Mubarak’s position is weak at best and his only option to stay in power is to begin shooting protesters dead in the street like they did in Iran. – The man who wants to replace him is the former head of I.A.E.A Mohamed ElBaradei who shielded the Iranian nuclear weapons programs for years. 

Looking over his shoulder is the Muslim Brotherhood connected to the Wahabi out of Saudi Arabia who supplied the terrorist for 9/11. He is seen as an ally of the Muslim Brotherhood, the main opposition force in Egypt.

What is the Muslim Brotherhood? The Society of the Muslim Brothers (الإخوان Al-Ikhwān) is the world’s oldest and largest Islamic political group. It was founded in Egypt in 1928 by the Islamic scholar and Sufi schoolteacher Hassan al-Banna. – The Brotherhood’s stated goal is to instill the Qur’an and Sunnah as the“sole reference point for the life of a Muslim family, individual, community and state”.

The Brotherhood quickly gained many followers throughout North Africa and the Middle East and influenced the development of Muslim groups in other regions. It became politicized after 1938, rejecting Westernization, modernization, and secularization. Suppressed in Egypt after a 1954 assassination attempt on Gamal Abdel Nasser, it operated clandestinely in the 1960s and ’70s. Beginning in the late 1980s, it experienced an upsurge; though its candidates were often listed under other parties, Brotherhood candidates competed in legislative elections in Egypt and Jordan. As a means of circumventing the ban, supporters run for office as Independents. -Other groups with different names, such as Al Qaeda, Hamas and Hezbullah, are today all part of it.

The Muslim Brotherhood is banned in Egypt, and members have been arrested for their participation in it. – But Reuter’s News reported just today that 34 of its members, including seven members of the leadership, walked out of prison on Sunday after relatives of prisoners overcame the guards, a Brotherhood official said. The relatives stormed the prison in Wadi el-Natroun, 80 miles northwest of Cairo, and set free several thousand of the inmates, Brotherhood office manager Mohamed Osama told Reuters.

Emboldened by these demonstrations, other surrounding Islamic countries are following suit. Tunisia, Albania, Jordan, Yemen, – just to name a few.

Will the Muslim Brotherhood succeed to gain control? Will fanatical Islam end up ruling Egypt? At the time I am writing this, opposition leader Mohamed ElBaradei is calling for President Hosni Mubarak to step down.

Whatever happens in Egypt, it will surely affect Israel and the entire West.

Thoughts for the New Year

January 1, 2011

According to the Roman calendar we have just started the year 2011. The Romans counted the years starting from the date of the birth of Jesus. The Jewish calendar starts the year in September. It counts the number of years since creation, calculated by adding up the ages of people in the Bible back to the time of creation, which happened 5771 years ago.

All throughout the Jewish Bible, from Genesis to Malachi, hundreds of specific scriptures declare that G-D gave the ancient land of Canaan to the Jewish people, as their Promised Land to enjoy forever, with Jerusalem as their sacred capital.

The understanding of this covenant to Abraham is vital. The important point to realize is that this covenant is unconditional, that is, G-D never breaks a promise and will therefore not break this promise that He made to Abraham so long ago. – Even though sin and disobedience caused a temporary loss of this covenant blessing (2000 years), the covenant itself never got cancelled.

Prophet Isaiah predicted the rebirth of Israel with these words: “Who ever heard of such a thing? Who has ever seen such things? Is a country born in one day? Is a nation brought forth all at once? For as soon as Tzyion went into labor, she brought forth her children” – (Isaiah 66:8). Remarkably, when the British mandate over Palestine, authorized by the League of Nations, ended at midnight on May 15, 1948, Israel’s first prime minister, David Ben Gurion, declared publicly that Israel was once again a nation and now took its rightful place on the stage of world history.

Without doubt, the rebirth of the nation of Israel on May 15, 1948, is one of the most extraordinary of all the prophecies in the ancient Scriptures. During the last century, millions of Jews from more than seventy nations, often at great personal cost, have undertaken the arduous journey toward the fulfillment of the age-old Passover dream: “Next year in Jerusalem”.

Some people object; it can’t be the current State of Israel, because it is a secular government. – While the return to the Land today is a physical and political event, the Scripture makes it abundantly clear that the physical re-gathering and restoration of Israel is only a prelude to ultimate spiritual restoration. (Ezekiel 36:25-27)

Others say that the Land was stolen from the Palestinians and should be returned to them. – There never was a Palestinian state governed by Arab Palestinians in the history of civilization nor a nation referred to as “Palestine”. After the 1967 Six-Day War, when the Jordanians lost the West Bank [Judea and Samaria] and Gaza, Jordanian soldiers became “Palestinians” – basically over night. Even the so-called leader of these “Palestinian” people, Yasser Arafat, was an Egyptian! In short, these Arab “Palestinians” are a manufactured people…a people with no history and no authenticity… whose sole purpose for existence is to destroy the Jewish State! The very notion of a “Palestinian Arab nation” having ancient attachments to the Holy Land going back to time immemorial is one of the biggest hoaxes ever perpetrated upon the world! – I don’t know if it was Lenin or Hitler who formed the philosophy that if you told a big enough lie and you repeated it often enough, the people would begin to believe it as truth. We’re seeing exactly that strategy at work in the world today. In fact, the conflict that most threatens world peace is built on an enormous lie.

So, what will happen next? The Bible says there will be a battle over Jerusalem. There is also a prophecy about Damascus going up in flames. There is the promise of the Messiah and the Temple being re-built.

Don’t wait for your newspaper if you can read tomorrow’s headlines ahead of time. I encourage you to read these Scriptures if you want to understand where we are in God’s prophetic timetable.

Look to the nation of Israel as G-D’s promise for His Land and His people will be fulfilled.
