Egypt Launches Major Operation In Sinai Against Terrorists


JOL: The Egyptian Army announced on Friday morning that its forces have launched a large-scale operation against terrorists in the Nile Delta and northern Sinai.

In a televised statement, the army’s spokesperson explained that the goal of the operation is “to eradicate terrorism in Sinai and cleanse the area of terrorists,” Israel’s Channel 10 News network reported. Residents of the area reported hearing air activities above Ismailia, a city near the Suez Canal.

In recent years, Egypt has experienced a wave of terror attacks targeting military forces, police officers and the Coptic Christian minority. Many of the attacks have taken place in the northern Sinai area. However, some were carried out in central cities such as Cairo and Alexandria. more …

Opinion by Bible Prophecy: The perception among many Bible prophecy believers is that the preponderance of terror operations since 9/11 are being carried out by the descendants of Ishmael.

Genesis 16:12, 17:26 record that even though Ishmael was circumcised, he would still be a wild man against all his brothers. That 15 of the 19 terrorists on 9/11 were Saudi nationals (Ishmael’s ancestral home), does not change the fact that there is another Israel-hating bloodline from Abraham that is completely overlooked.

It occurred to me after attending a recent lecture on Romans 9 that when the topic of Jacob and Esau is preached, it is Jacob that becomes the bad guy.

Look at what Paul says in Romans 9:10-13:

“And not only this, but when Rebecca also had conceived by one man, even by our father Isaac (for the children not yet being born, nor having done any good or evil, that the purpose of God according to election might stand, not of works but of Him who calls),  it was said to her, “The older shall serve the younger.”  As it is written, “Jacob I have loved, but Esau I have hated.”

To be clear, Jacob and his mother Rebecca were guilty of a conspiracy complete with lies and deception so that Jacob would receive the birthright to the Promised Land, despite the Biblical fact that God had already chosen Jacob, the younger son, to receive the birthright (Genesis 25:23, 27:28-29).

Usually the account of the twins ends there, without further investigation as to why Esau and the name God called him, Edom, have over 190 references in Scripture.

Amos 1:6-7Thus says the Lord:

“For three transgressions of Gaza, and for four,
I will not turn away its punishment,
Because they took captive the whole captivity
To deliver them up to Edom.”

Obadiah 1: 8-9:

“Will I not in that day,” says the Lord,
“Even destroy the wise men from Edom,
And understanding from the mountains of Esau?
Then your mighty men, O Teman (legetimate grandson of Esau), shall be dismayed,
To the end that everyone from the mountains of Esau
May be cut off by slaughter.”

Hebrews 12:16 NIV:

“See that no one is sexually immoral, or is godless like Esau, who for a single meal sold his inheritance rights as the oldest son.”

That there is terror in the Sinai today is an ominous sign that the descendants of Esau’s illegitimate grandson, Amalek (Amalekites), people of the Negev (Sinai desert), are still carrying out an ancient blood feud.

It was in the adjoining northern Sinai where the Amalekites first attacked the Israelites after the Red Sea crossing, and it was in the southern Sinai where Moses instructed his general, Joshua, to take on the Amalekites in the battle of Rephidim (Exodus 17:8-15).

And it was Moses who wrote in Exodus 17:16: “Because the Lord has sworn: the Lord will have war with Amalek from generation to generation.”

SARSOUR: YOU HAVE NO RIGHT TO TELL US WE CAN’T KILL JEWS


A few more deep anti-Semitic thoughts from the new Islamist face of the left.

On December 9th, taking to her Facebook account, Linda Sarsour justified Palestinian terrorism:

In context of what’s happening in Palestine in response to the announcement about Jerusalem and in general living under the longest and most brutal military occupation – we have to get a few things straight.

Nobody gets to tell an occupied people how to respond to their own oppression and the continued stripping of their humanity, agency and land whether they are Palestinians or not. Nobody. Oppressed people determine how, when and where to resist. They set the parameters. You don’t have to agree. Unless you have lived in their condition under the boot of a racist, supremacist, violent regime that sees them as less than human – you have no say in this conversation…

Good to know that the laws of warfare don’t apply to oppressed peoples under the boot of a racist, supremacist, violent regime…. more

Lindsey Graham after meeting with Mattis: ‘The war is moving to Africa’


Washington Examiner: Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., said Friday that U.S. global counter-terrorism operations are set to expand and become more aggressive following a meeting with Defense Secretary Jim Mattis about troop deaths in Niger.

That will include more operations in Africa where four soldiers were killed this month after being ambushed by Islamic State-aligned fighters and a loosening of the military’s rules of engagement to allow the killing of those considered part of a terrorist group, even if they do not present an immediate threat to the U.S., Graham said after emerging from his Senate office with Mattis…… read more

Opinion by Bible Prophecy Tracker: October 4, 2017 headline: “4 US Troops Killed in Niger” left a lot of questions …

Where is Niger? Why are US troops there? How is it that US forces could be overwhelmed? Is Niger the next Bengazi?  What is the US going to do about it?

Aside from the political noise surrounding a phone call made by President Trump to the widow of US Army Sgt. La David Johnson (second from left), Niger is next door to Mali and Mali was a topic of several posts we did in 2013 regarding the spread of al Qaeda forces in North Africa…. read more

WND, Jan 23, 2013: “Recent attacks by Al-Qaida in the Islamic Maghreb in northern Mali may well  represent an overall strategy by al-Qaida central – headed by Ayman al-Zawahiri – to build a stage in northern Africa to launch attacks into Western Europe.”

On October 4, 2017 out post “Turkey Opens Its Largest Military Base In Somalia” exposed the Turkish influence on the Gog Magog nations of Cush (Sudan, Somalia, Ethiopia) and Put (Libya). It is no longer a mystery as to why these nations join in the invasion with Russia, Iran and Turkey.

Image result for map of africa showing niger

Niger, like most of North Africa, is over 90% Muslim, and it could be that Ezekiel’s prophecy “and the many people with you” (Ez. 38:9) could mean additional North African nations in Gog Magog.

Front Page Mag provides the answer as to why US troops were overwhelmed:

“It wasn’t President Trump who deployed our soldiers to Niger. That was Obama’s doing.  American soldiers in Iraq and Syria were put in the same strange situation of being deployed in a war zone without a combat mission.  

Except to defend themselves. 

Or as Obama put it, “The recently deployed forces have deployed with weapons for the purpose of providing their own force protection and security.” 

Lindsey Graham:“The war is headed to Africa. It’s beginning to morph. As we suppress the enemy in the Mideast, they are going to move. They are not going to quit,” he said.

The Senator is correct. No matter how many terror groups are defeated, the ideology of hatred that Ishmael and Esau have for Jacob (Gen. 35:10) will not end until the King of Kings returns (Isa. 63:1-3; Rev. 19:13-15).

Why We Cannot Trust the FBI


The FBI is discounting ISIS’ claim that the Las Vegas attack was jihad. But is the FBI really trustworthy?

The Islamic State says Steven Paddock converted six months ago. He filmed himself killing; jihadis do that and post it online. The attack was meticulously planned, as jihad attacks are, and Paddock likely had an accomplice. Paddock made numerous trips to the Middle East. Over 200 of his foreign financial transactions were flagged for possible “covert terrorism financing.”

Contrary to the ignorant, misinformed and delusional talking heads in the media, ISIS does not take responsibility for events that are not theirs. This has led even the New York Times’ terrorism expert to give credence to ISIS’ claims. The Philippines attack at Resorts World Casino was theirs. And there again, ISIS’ initial claims of responsibility were dismissed.

The Los Angeles Times reported Saturday that “the FBI investigated the Orlando mass shooter for 10 months — and found nothing.”… read more

Insane Hatred and Common Sense


by Bill Wilson

There is an ilk of people in the US who want to see the nation turned into a communist state and they are doing everything they can to foment a revolution. They are pawns of the globalist Marxist system, yet many haven’t a clue of how they are being used. They angrily oppose all things good, defy common sense, and accuse anyone who doesn’t agree with their warped viewpoints of the very evil that motivates their hearts. Case in point: In the wake of the most recent Islamic terror attack in London, President Donald Trump said America needs to ban the entry of people into the US who are from countries that sponsor terrorism in order to “help keep our country safe.” Common sense, right? Not so fast.

The communist left came out of the woodwork calling Trump racist, an embarrassment to the office of the President, and a piece of [explicative for excrement]. Meantime, Kathy Griffin, the radical leftist representative of the Democratic Party’s entertainment wing, held a news conference about her stunt of beheading the President. She played the victim by claiming that Trump “broke her” and that she is now being bullied by the Trump family for her actions. She also said she thought that Barron Trump, the President’s minor child, is fair game for criticism and ridicule. Yet, radical leftist Bill Maher on HBO makes a racial slur to a US Senator and gets a free pass after blaming his comment on a lack of sleep.

So we have a President who says we need to put the security of our nation’s citizens first by putting a travel ban in place for people coming from terrorist-sponsoring nations and the radical left calls him racist and worse. We also have a comedian who carries the banner for the entertainment industry’s support of the Democratic Party symbolically beheading the President and then claiming she was driven to it by the President’s actions. And the news media thinks these things are viable points in the national conversation—in fact, reporters at CNN, MSNBC, CBS and so on—fanned the flames of this unreasonable hysteria by making derogatory comments about the President. So much for unbiased journalism.

The fevered pitch of this crazed mania has become so uncontrolled it even prompted Russian President Vladimir Putin to question the nonsense in a Sunday interview with NBC’s Megyn Kelly, another vocal anti-Trump “journalist.” Putin was very pointed: “You created a sensation out of nothing. And out of this sensation, you turned it into a weapon of war against the current president…have you all lost your senses over there?” 1 John 2:11 says, “He that hates his brother is in darkness and knows not where he goes because that darkness has blinded his eyes.” These people are so driven by hate that they have lost all common sense and decency. It is a pitiful state of existence. As Jesus said, we should pray for our enemies. These people are truly lost and certainly need prayer, repentance, and the Lord Jesus Christ.

Matthew 24:12 AMPC And the love of the great body of people will grow cold because of the multiplied lawlessness and iniquity,

Twitter Sued By Families Of Terrorism Victims For "Providing Services To ISIS"


Lately Twitter just can’t seem to get anything right.

While Jack Dorsey’s social network has been frequently in the news for cracking down on outspoken members of the “alt-right”, or those accused of harrassment such as Martin Shkreli most recently, it has also been accused of taking a soft hand on those who post real threats, such as terrorist who use the social network to coordinate attacks.

A 2014 article in The Atlantic titled “How ISIS Games Twitter” described how “extremists of all stripes are increasingly using social media to recruit, radicalize and raise funds.” … [read more]

lhwm notes: They should also go after the people who support ISIS that are in our government and White House. Twitter is just the carrier not the provider!

Terror In America: Three Ongoing Cases


Two court cases and a terror plot tip-off highlight that terrorism is still a threat to the United States.

An Ohio man found guilty of a terrorist plot to attack the US Capitol building screamed “Allah is in control, not this judge!” as he was led from the courtroom after being sentenced.  Christopher Lee Cornell, of Cincinnati was sentenced to 30 years in prison and lifetime probation following his release. He pleaded guilty to charges brought against him for his intentions to attack the Capitol during President Barack Obama’s State of the Union Address.

The would-be jihadist was arrested in January 2015. The authorities found two semi-automatic rifles and 600 rounds of ammunition in preparation for the assault.

A Detroit man who amassed a weapons arsenal and discussed violent plans with an undercover FBI agent has now been charged with receipt of explosive materials with intent to harm. Previously, he had been charged with possession of illegal weaponry. He was also a vocal Islamic State supporter…[Read More]
