ATHEIST GEORGE SOROS: "THE MAIN STUMBLING BLOCK IS ISRAEL..."
February 5, 2011 - Wealthy atheist, George Soros, wrote an interesting piece for The Washington Post on February 3. In the piece titled "Why Obama has to get Egypt right," Soros, who is the Chairman of Soros Fund Management and the Open Society Foundations, makes some absurd claims that he believes are necessary for democracy to effectively come from the Egyptian revolution.
Soros stated in his piece, "The Muslim Brotherhood's cooperation with Mohamed ElBaradei, the Nobel laureate who is seeking to run for president, is a hopeful sign that it intends to play a constructive role in a democratic political system. As regards contagion, it is more likely to endanger the enemies of the United States - Syria and Iran - than our allies, provided that they are willing to move out ahead of the avalanche.
The main stumbling block is Israel. In reality, Israel has as much to gain from the spread of democracy in the Middle East as the United States has. But Israel is unlikely to recognize its own best interests because the change is too sudden and carries too many risks. And some U.S. supporters of Israel are more rigid and ideological than Israelis themselves. Fortunately, Obama is not beholden to the religious right, which has carried on a veritable vendetta against him. The American Israel Public Affairs Committee is no longer monolithic or the sole representative of the Jewish community. The main danger is that the Obama administration will not adjust its policies quickly enough to the suddenly changed reality.
I am, as a general rule, wary of revolutions. But in the case of Egypt, I see a good chance of success. As a committed advocate of democracy and open society, I cannot help but share in the enthusiasm that is sweeping across the Middle East. I hope President Obama will expeditiously support the people of Egypt. My foundations are prepared to contribute what they can. In practice, that means establishing resource centers for supporting the rule of law, constitutional reform, fighting corruption and strengthening democratic institutions in those countries that request help in establishing them, while staying out of those countries where such efforts are not welcome."
It is shocking that someone would side with terrorist organizations like the Muslim Brotherhood and state that Israel -the only democracy in the Middle East- is the stumbling block to peace in the region.

THE TINY NATION OF ISRAEL MOVING AWAY FROM THE U.S.?
July 12, 2013 - Jim Willie CB, GoldenJackass.com - ".... Death of King Abdullah and sunset of Petro-Dollar: Someday will be revealed the death of Abdullah, which many expert analysts (not the State Dept clowns or Wall Street harlots) expect will result in the fall of the House of Saud. Accompanying his death will be the demise of the Petro-Dollar, which has served as the critical foundation for the USDollar for 40 years. Actually, a new energy cartel is forming. It is the current powerful new force emerging as the Natural Gas Coop, with key players Gazprom of Russia, Qatar and Iran in the Persian Gulf (strange bedfellows), Turkmenistan, and Israel. (NOTE: This act alone will cause the collapse of the US economy and put Russia and Israel in partnership agreements! The US is about to fall!)
Growing Eastern energy pipelines: Called Pipeline-STAN by some analysts like Pepe Escobar, an excellent analyst whose work appears on Asia Times, featured on the Hat Trick Letter. A key pipeline through Syria is called the Shiite Pipeline by the Jackass. The big new pipeline with conflict and controversy is the Iran-Pakistan pipeline. The USGovt is trying to play the same losing game, by banning banks that cooperate with its funded construction. But China has entered the fray, guaranteeing its full funding. Pakistan is no longer friendly to the United States, not after thousands of civilian deaths by USMilitary drones. Russia is the chief architect of energy pipelines, for natural gas, for crude oil. They will supply Europe and Britain, and thus turn the alliances of Europe eastward toward Russia. The United States will be increasingly isolated.
Movement by Israel away from the US fold: The tiny nation is fast entering into a Russian alliance, starting with the Tamor floating as platform, extending into hidden deals with Putin of Russia. The Tamor natural gas output is under contract to Gazprom, a giant surplus assuring significant capital inflow to their economy. Also, a notable number of Israeli immigrants are of Russian descent, estimated between 25% and 40%, maybe higher. The nation might sound like a US partner in the Syria battles, but not so, not really. .." The whole artile at: http://www.gold-eagle.com/

RUSSIA AND ISRAEL NOT ENEMIES: IN 2010 THEY SIGNED MILITARY AGREEMENT
Published September 06, 2010 09:01 - A new five year plan has been hammered out and signed during a meeting of the Russian and Israeli defense ministers in Moscow. The agreement boosts military ties between the two nations to help them fight common threats, such as terrorism and the proliferation of weapons of mass destruction. The agreement inked today by Russian Defense Minister Anatoly Serdyukov and his Israeli counterpart Ehud Barak sketches out the further military co-operation between the two countries for the next five years. Specifically one of the highlights of the document is that Russia will buy 12 UAVs from Israel. The Russian minister said that 50 technicians are already being taught to operate them. There was also a talk to build a joint facility where those drones will be built, because Russia expressed desire to participate in manufacturing of the UAVs. The document also sketches out details of further military cooperation: an exchange of experience and information in spheres of mutual interests, which includes issues of international security. It also dwells on development of military education, medicine, physical training and other issues. Continued: http://rt.com/news/israel-barak-military-serdyukov/

ISRAEL BEATS DRUM LOUDER: 'WON'T WAIT UNTIL IT'S TOO LATE TO ATTACK IRAN
'Our clocks are ticking' faster than the US, says Israeli PM
Jacob Chamberlain, staff writer - Published on Monday, July 15, 2013 by Common Dreams
Revamping his threat to attack Iran over a supposed nuclear weapons program, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu warned Sunday that he is still considering a strike in the not too distant future, with or without the U.S.'s consent, stating: "I won't wait until it's too late."
"Our clocks are ticking at a different pace. We're closer than the United States. We're more vulnerable. And therefore, we'll have to address this question of how to stop Iran, perhaps before the United States does," he said.
Tehran has consistently insisted that its nuclear program is solely for energy purposes. Israel has continually failed to prove otherwise.
The Obama administration has thus far resisted Netanyahu's temptation, citing inconclusive evidence, despite attempts by Congress and the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) to push the U.S. towards all-out war.
The Obama administration has, however, alongside its European allies, continued to impose devastating sanctions on the country, which have essentially crippled Iran's economy and created an ongoing health crisis.
"They're edging up to the red line. They haven't crossed it yet," Netanyahu said in reference to his now infamous red-line graph. He, however, failed once again to provide his audience with new evidence. Continued:

DAY OF UPRISINGS AGAINST ISRAEL'S SWEEPING 'ETHNIC CLEANSING' PLAN
Advocates slam the Prawar Plan against Bedouins as the "largest single act of forced displacement of Arab citizens of Israel since the 1950s"
Published on Tuesday, July 16, 2013 by Common Dreams - Sarah Lazare, staff writer
"... Israel's Prewar Plan, passed in the Knesset in late June, aims to displace tens of thousands of Bedouins and destroy 35 "unrecognized villages," forcing Bedouins into government resettlement villages.
The Adelah Legal Center for Minority Rights in Israel says the Prawer Plan, if implemented, would be "the largest single act of forced displacement of Arab citizens of Israel since the 1950s."
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu called the Prawer Plan a necessary step to put an end to "illegal building by Negev Bedouin."
Yet, Bedouins declare that Israeli zoning laws deem their indigenous communities illegal in order to create legal justification for ethnic cleansing of the Negev.
Bedouins, native to Israel's southern Naqab/Negev desert, used to number nearly 100,000. Since the 1948 expulsion of Palestinians—known as the 'Nakba, or 'great catastrophe'—Israel has used arguments of illegality to carry out forced evictions, raids, and demolitions of homes and schools, making it near impossible for Bedouin villages to develop livable infrastructure.
Some Bedouins refer to this as the 'constant Nakba.' Continued: http://www.commondreams.org/headline/2013/07/16-5

From Associated Press - July 19, 2013 2:08 PM EST - AMMAN, Jordan (AP) — Israeli and Palestinian officials will meet soon in Washington to work out final details on relaunching Mideast peace negotiations for the first time in five years, U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry said Friday.
The announcement fell short of an outright resumption of the negotiations, which would tackle the toughest issues of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. But after days of meeting with both sides, Kerry told reporters in the Jordanian capital that they had agreed on "a basis" for the talks.
"We have reached an agreement that establishes the basis for resuming direct final status negotiations between the Palestinians and the Israelis," he said. "This is a significant and welcome step forward."
"The agreement is still in the process of being formalized," he said, refusing to give any details on what had been agreed so far. "If everything goes as expected," Israeli and Palestinians negotiators will hold initial talks "within the next week or so," he said.
Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas, who met with Kerry in the West Bank town of Ramallah earlier Friday, said "lengthy talks ... have resulted in the Palestinians accepting the resumption of talks."
In a statement, Abbas said "some details still need to be worked out," but that Israeli and Palestinian officials could be invited to Washington for talks in the coming days. Continued: http://www.boston.com/news/world/middle-east/2

WHEN PEOPLES OF THE WORLD BEGIN SPEAKING OF "PEACE". JEWS DIE!
Jews have been dying under the crushing burden of the world's peace for a long time now.
Is this newest push toward a "peace" treaty with the Palestinians going to create the same genocidal result?
NEWS BRIEF: "Jews Die When World Talks 'Peace': Jews must fight the betrayal of the land, Israel National News, July 22, 2013 - "A fiendish aspect of the Nazi war on the Jewish people was the scheme to dupe the Jews into cooperating in their own destruction. This is the real irony of 'Israeli officials' now praising Obama and Kerrys efforts and opening the door to the Holocaust denier Mahmoud Abbas. The 'peace process' is going to create a nine mile wide concentration camp. Stop it now, or one day the Diaspora Jews will have to create a second Holocaust Museum."
This author is entirely correct from a strictly human perspective. Creating a Palestinian State inside tiny Israel will create a situation where Israel cannot be defended conventionally. President Nixon spoke to this reality shortly before leaving office. He said that Israel could never agree to a Palestinian State, because that new hostile Arab nation would be so close to Israel that no military could defend her. Nixon likened the creation of a Palestinian State from within Israel to a person having a sharp knife just inches from his heart.
This is Conventional Wisdom and is accepted by most everyone. However, Cutting Edge has a somewhat different viewpoint, one that is Biblical and consistent with prophecy. We believe the following events are about to happen as the result of this controversy over a Palestinian State.
#1 - We understand that Global Illuminized Freemasonry is really committed to the existence of Israel because their religion demands that they build the Third Temple -- "Read full details in NEWS1643, entitled, "Fervent Masonic Desire To Build Solomon's Temple")
#2 - Consistent with the understanding that the truth lies in the opposite direction of the Public Rhetoric, we believe that all these negotiations will result in the utter annihilation of the Palestinians and the elevation of Israel to superpower status within the Middle East. (Read full details in NEWS1558, entitled, "Breaking Out of the Propaganda Box: Learning To Discover Truth By Looking In The Opposite Direction")
#3 - This annihilation of the Palestinians is boldly predicted and is being slowly carried out by Israel cooperating with Western nations, especially the United States and Great Britain. (Read full details in NEWS2095.
#4 - Since Israel also wields the "kinetic" weapons system known as Depleted Uranium, she literally has the capability of killing tens of millions of enemy soldiers in the twinkling of an eye. We believe that, once the Palestinians are annihilated, a wave of incredibly intense hatred toward Israel will erupt in the hearts and minds of all Muslims throughout the world. Their armies will begin to march on Israel in fulfillment of Zechariah 12.
#5 - Once Israel, under God's protection, annihilates Muslims by the tens of millions, the stage is then set for Russia to march against Israel herself, in fulfillment of Ezekiel 38-39. Russia will be determined to finish Israel off, since her weapons in the hands of Islamic soldiers has proven spectacularly ineffective.
This scenario is the one which is slowly unfolding in the Middle East, not the fairy tale known as Conventional Wisdom. Can you "think outside the box"?

FROM CUTTING EDGE NEWSLETTER:
THE PALESTINIAN AUTHORITY PRESIDENT, ABBAS, HAS FINALLY SPELLED OUT IN DETAIL
HOW HE INTENDS TO USE THE "PEACE TREATY" WITH ISRAEL AS A "TROJAN HORSE"!
According to the precepts of the Prophet, if Islam finds itself in a position of weakness with an enemy, they are to reach a false peace with that enemy until they can accumulate enough strength to destroy them.
This plan has always been the guiding force behind Palestinian "negotiations" with Israel. We now thank Abbas for his candor.
NEWS BRIEF: "Palestinian Authority Minister: New peace talks will help us conquer Israel later", Israel Today, July 29, 2013
"... Palestinian Authority Minister of Religious Affairs Mahmoud Al-Habbash reassured everyone last week that the political peace process is just a ruse, and part of a larger scheme to defeat their enemy ... Al-Habbash compared the US-driven peace negotiations to the Hudaybiyyah Peace Treaty concluded between Islam's prophet Mohammed and the Quraish tribe of Mecca. Mohammed knew that only a more measured approach would lead to ultimate victory. Two years after signing the treaty, Mohammed's forces had gained enough strength and he launched the brutal conquest of Mecca."
" 'This is the example and this is the model' that the Palestinian leadership is following, Al-Habbash acknowledged."
From the lips of this prominent Palestinian Authority cleric, we see that they plan to use negotiations with Israel for a Palestinian State as a "Trojan Horse" ruse, whereby they can get some land now, while they build their military power so they can eradicate Israel later.
This plan is a good one, except the Palestinians have no knowledge of the Almighty God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. They have no understanding that Old Testament prophecies written 2,600 years ago foretelling their complete annihilation at God's hands are now slowly grinding toward completion.
Listen to just one prophetic statement:
"... I am about to make Jerusalem a cup or bowl of reeling to all the peoples round about ... in that day I will make Jerusalem a burdensome stone for all peoples; all who lift it or burden themselves with it shall be sorely wounded. And all the nations of the earth shall come and gather together against it. In that day, says the Lord, I will smite every horse of the armies that contend against Jerusalem with terror and panic and his rider with madness ... In that day will the Lord guard and defend the inhabitants of Jerusalem ... I will make it My aim to destroy all the nations that come against Jerusalem." (Zechariah 12:2-9; Parallel Bible, KJV/Amplified Bible Commentary)
God even prophesied that, at the End of the Age, after Israel had returned to her land, efforts would be made to divide Israel.
"I will gather all nations and will bring them down into the Valley of Jehoshaphat, and there will I deal with and execute judgment upon them for [their treatment of] My people and of My heritage Israel, whom they have scattered among the nations and because they have divided My land." (Joel 3:2; Ibid.)
God is preparing His sword of judgment for all the nations who hate and contend with Israel.
Doubt it not! http://www.cuttingedge.org/newsletters/index.html

ISRAELI FIRM TALKS UP MANKIND’S RECOVERY FROM THE TOWER OF BABEL
You speak in your language but the listener hears you in his or hers — by phone, via the Internet, or even face-to-face. It’s a linguistic revolution, say the innovators behind Lexifone -By David Shamah
“And the whole earth was of one language, and of one speech… And they said, Come, let us build us a city and a tower, whose top may reach unto heaven… And the Lord came down to see the city and the tower… And the Lord said, Behold, the people is one, and they have all one language; and this they begin to do: and now nothing will be restrained from them, which they have imagined to do. Go to, let us go down, and there confound their language, that they may not understand one another’s speech.
So the Lord scattered them abroad from thence upon the face of all the earth: and they left off to build the city. Therefore is the name of it called Babel; because the Lord did there confound the language of all the earth: and from (Gen.11: 1-9)
The Bible ascribes the diversity of languages on Earth thence did the Lord scatter them abroad upon the face of all the earth.” some 6,500 tongues in current usage, according to most estimates — to the hubris of post-flood mankind in seeking to build a tower to heaven, and a divine decision to punish that Tower of Babel construction project by “confounding” man’s capacity to communicate in a single tongue. Now, an Israeli start-up claims to be perfecting the best means of overcoming that biblical curse of global language barriers. “Our vision is to allow two people anywhere in the world to communicate and understand each other, no matter their language and no matter the medium — phone, Internet, or face-to-face,” said Ike Sagie, the CEO of Lexifone. “We believe that our product is the harbinger of this revolution.” A step toward conquering the Earth’s linguistic cacophony, Lexifone lets you speak to anyone in English and (so far) seven other languages. The person on the other end (or right next to you, using an Android app) hears what you’ve just said in his or her own language. Right now, speakers of English, French, Spanish, Italian, Portuguese, German, Russian, and Mandarin can call each other and have their conversations automatically translated; on the agenda are Japanese, Arabic, Korean, and Hebrew. More languages, including other Chinese dialects, will follow, eventually covering most global language requirements.
Itay told The Times of Israel. The system can differentiate between dialects, such as American, British and Australian English, and can take into account regional accents, thanks to voice-to-machine software packages produced by Nuance and other companies. Hollis Caravetta E-mail: Holliscar@aol.com
