1979 was the year of the Iranian Revolution, perhaps the most significant revolution in history. It brought the Ayatollah Khomeini and a serious Islamic regime to power. Islam cannot be true to itself without pursuing global supremacy.

Iran is on the threshold of developing nuclear weapons. Iran could then control the Middle East’s enormous oil resources on which America’s and Europe’s economy depend. It is no longer scare-mongering to say the Iranian Revolution is the most serious threat ever faced by Western civilization. This is implied in Mahmoud Ahmadinejad’s maledictions “Death to America” and “Death to Israel.”

1979 was also the year of the Soviet Union’s invasion of Afghanistan. In the previous year I wrote Sadat’s Strategy. Let me read from the book’s seventh Appendix:

During the March 6, 1978 hearings of the Senate Armed Services Committee, General Robert Dixon, chief of the U.S. Air Force Tactical Air Command, answered with a flat “no” when asked whether American air power could succeed against the rapidly improving Soviet Air Force.

Military analysts are beginning to wonder whether the United States will be able to defend its own homeland, much less any of its friends or allies. A recent study submitted to the Defense Nuclear Agency on the comparative strategic force effectiveness of the U.S. and the USSR shows that the Soviet Union is superior to the United States in 33 of 41 categories, including ICBM launchers … as well as range of submarine launched ballistic missiles .…

Despite these threatening developments, the Carter Administration (1) failed to provide for the protection of America’s ICBM system, which is now vulnerable to a Soviet first strike; … (2) delayed the development of the long-range cruise missile which could help restore the nuclear balance; and (3) shelved the production of the neutron bomb, a tactical weapon that could deter a dreaded Soviet-led tank attack on Western Europe …

In view of these considerations [I continued], it is reasonable to conclude that the United States would not come to Israel’s support against Soviet intervention in a Middle East conflict …

But for the U.S. to stand idly by and allow Israel to be overrun by Arab and Soviet forces would have catastrophic consequences…. It would reveal the military inferiority of the United States. America’s allies in Europe and Japan would desert the Western alliance and make the best deal they could with Moscow. The Soviets would become the masters of the globe….

So much for what I said in 1978. Now I must add that despite the collapse of the Soviet Union in 1990, it would be naïve to think that Russia, well-supplied with energy resources and still possessed of overkill nuclear weaponry, has given up its global ambitions. Indeed, the renewal of the Cold War has become topical.

Nevertheless, despite the resurgence of an imperialistic Russia, and despite the resurgence of imperialist Islam, the Barak Obama administration has decided to follow the path of the Carter administration: military retrenchment and a see-no- evil, hear-no-evil, and speak-no-evil foreign policy.

To clarify Obama’s policy, I will recapitulate a report published two days ago by Hillsdale College Professor Paul Rahe. Rahe extracts the key points of an extensive essay written by Charles Krauthammer in the Weekly Standard. So important is that essay that the editors made it available online before the journal was published. I’ll merely inject some clarifying remarks.

The title of the essay is “Decline is a Choice: The New Liberalism and the End of American Ascendancy.”

Krauthammer’s point is simple and unassailable. There is, he argues, an intimate connection between the foreign policy of the Obama administration and his domestic policy. The work undertaken in the domestic sphere will put a stop to the pattern of dynamic economic growth that made it possible for the United States to defeat Japan, contribute decisively to the defeat of Nazi Germany, contain communism, and ultimately defeat and prepare the way for the dismemberment of the Soviet Union.

Obama’s policy will produce economic stagnation of the sort that the Europeans have suffered from for decades, and it will eventuate in a collapse of the American dollar. Obama and his minions understand this, and this is what they want: the elimination of the foundations for American hegemony and the crippling of this country. [In other words, Obama and his minions are pursuing intertwined domestic and foreign policies whose goal is to terminate America’s dominance in international affairs.]

They regard the role America has thus far played in the world as shameful; they are intent on dismembering the alliances that gave America its heft in the world; and they are not only appeasing America’s sworn enemies but openly, publicly embracing them and their agenda.

Obama’s decision to effectuate America’s decline explains the praise showered on him by Vladimir Putin, Hugo Chavez, and Fidel Castro. This is the meaning of Obama’s recent betrayal of Poland—on the 70th anniversary of the Soviet invasion of that country—when he cancelled the project of providing Poland with a defensive nuclear shield.

It explains why Obama initially responded to the open theft of an election in Iran by professing his confidence in the Iranian government, It is why the State Department recently cut off funds for the Iran Human Rights Documentation Center…which was collecting information on the imprisonment, torture, and murder of those in Iran who protested against the theft of that election.

It explains the deliberate insults [Obama] cast at Gordon Brown of Great Britain and Benjamin Netanyahu of Israel. And, of course, this explains the speeches given abroad again and again by President Obama, apologizing for American behavior in the past and signaling a radical shift in American policy. It is for this change of posture that Obama was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize.

[Professor Rahe concludes by saying]: “if you think that the United States is the principal source of evil in the world, you should vigorously applaud.”

Now let us go back in time to the very outset of the 2008 presidential election campaign and Obama’s mantra of CHANGE. To those aware of his scornful references to the American Declaration of Independence, it was obvious that by “change” Obama meant regime change. In other words, Obama rejected America’s founding principles.

Obama is a product of the New Left that gained prominence in academia during the 1960s. As I pointed out during presidential primaries, the philosopher of the New Left was Herbert Marcuse. Marcuse propagated an amalgam of ideas drawn from Marx, Sartre, and Freud—who denied timeless and universal moral ideas and saw them as relative to diverse historical epochs, diverse cultures, or diverse individual preferences. To those of us who saw the influence of Marcuse on college students, it was obvious Obama was a relativist—but no one exposed him as such during the presidential campaign.

To those of us who had studied America’s Founding Fathers, it was obvious that Obama rejected the immutable and universal truths or “natural rights” doctrine of the American Declaration of Independence—a document that stands for individual liberty and limited government—but no exposed him or put him to the test of his loyalty to America.

John Bolton, former U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations, described Obama as our first post-American president. I would put it more strongly: Obama our first anti-American president! This conforms to the teachings of his guru, the Rev. Jeremiah, Wright, who for many years has been preaching, “Don’t say God bless America; say God damn America.” All this bodes ill not only for America but for Israel.

In my book Sadat’s Strategy, I said that “America needs Israel as much as Israel needs America.” Today, however, Israel stands alone, as it was meant to stand alone. Can it be that by standing alone Israel if true to itself, may save America?

Let me leave you with this thought. A prominent U.S. engineer said: ‘”When I became VP of business developments for R.O.W. (rest of the world), it was obvious that Israel is now the capital of the rest of the world.” No doubt he was thinking in terms of nanotechnology, in which Israel leads the world. But perhaps this technology conceals a spiritual leadership simmering below the surface, and soon to emerge. It has been said that in Israel the only realists are those who believe in miracles.

Contrary to what my title indicates, I probably judge Barack Obama more harshly than most reading this. I don’t think he is just a misguided ideologue or merely a creature of expediency. I believe, practically speaking, that he is an evil man. That is to say, while he is largely ignorant like so many others, he has developed an affinity for evil. He mistakes it for good.

Yet, to be blunt, Obama doesn’t alarm me as much as the average American. To explain why, I’ll present something Roman philosopher and statesman Marcus Tullius Cicero said 2000 years ago when lamenting Julius Caesar’s rise to dictator:

Do not blame Caesar, blame the people of Rome who have so enthusiastically acclaimed and adored him and rejoiced in their loss of freedom and danced in his path and gave him triumphal processions . . . . Blame the people who hail him when he speaks in the Forum of the 'new, wonderful good society' which shall now be Rome's, interpreted to mean 'more money, more ease, more security, more living fatly at the expense of the industrious.' Julius was always an ambitious villain, but he is only one man.
Barack Obama is only one man. A bad man, yes, but he is a symptom more than a cause. Without millions of fawning Americans, he would just be a community agitator, vainly preaching Alinsky principles from a soapbox. Of course, he is a symptom that exacerbates the underlying problem, and symptomatic treatment — to ease immediate pain and hardship — is certainly in order. But it is only the worst of physicians who focuses only on symptoms while ignoring the cancer eating away at the patient’s midst.

Some of us lament the presence of self-professed communists such as Van Jones — and other assorted intellectual mutants, such as Cass Sunstein and John Holdren — in government, and how we elected a man who broke bread with self-professed communists such as Bill Ayers. But why complain now? We’ve had self-professed communists such as Bill Ayers — and other assorted intellectual mutants, such as Ward Churchill, Cass Sunstein and John Holdren — in academia for many decades. And good Americans still donated money to universities and still sent their most precious possessions, their children, to them. So, should it be any surprise that millions of these children would, knowing nothing and feeling all the wrongs things, flock to the polls and cast votes for people just like their teachers and professors? You may say that their parents knew nothing of these universities’ true nature. But it was their place to find out. And Obama did not create the modern academy. He is more a creation of it.

We also criticize Obama for saying “We no longer are [just] a Christian nation” and while speaking in Turkey that “We do not consider ourselves a Christian nation or a Jewish nation or a Muslim nation.” But can we really say he’s wrong? Has Christmas not become completely commercialized? How many of us say grace with our families before meals? How many of us pray every day? How many Americans subscribe to the modern perversion of the “separation of church and state” idea? How many of us say “God Bless” upon parting? Have the majority of American “Christians” not descended into moral relativism? It is here that some will call me a religious nut. All right, but I simply note that a Christian nation would actually practice Christianity and that if we are satisfied to be only nominally Christian, it lends weight to the argument that we’re not actually Christian. Of course, we certainly can condemn Obama for attending a pseudo-Christian church and being part of the problem, but he didn’t create our secular age. He is more a creation of it.

One thing Obama certainly did help create is the tea-party phenomenon. It is the largest, most impressive grassroots movement I can remember and I truly hope it grows beyond what even the most zealous reader would prefer. Yet, when I hear the protesters complain about the violation of the Constitution, I have to wonder we they’ve been. Did they miss the activist 1947 “separation of church and state ruling”? Have they learned about FDR’s New Deal and LBJ’s Great Society? Don’t they realize that the federal government long ago exceeded its constitutional bounds? Where is the constitutional mandate for Uncle Scam to involve itself in and/or fund housing, food stamps, farm subsidies, Medicaid, global-warming research, mass transit, and school sports programs? The fact is that most things the federal government has its claws into are none of its affair. Thus, to only now complain about constitutional trespasses is like having finally noted the invasion of Poland when the Nazis started bombing Great Britain.

We also have to ask how serious most Americans really are about respecting the Constitution. Here’s a little test for them: Are you willing to give up your Social Security in the name of constitutional adherence?

I thought so.

The average American has his version of acceptable constitutional violation, Ruth Bader-Ginsburg has hers, and Obama has his. And Obama didn’t create the “living document” mentality. He is more a creation of it.

Then there is our putrid popular culture. Effete Hollywood types — such as the Obama sycophants in this bizarre Harpo Productions video — thuggish rappers, MTV stoner types and the rest of our decadence czars helped galvanize the youth and propel the empty vessel to victory. Yet, while entertainment is a bastion of the left, it’s not entirely a creation of it. The reality is that we, the people, empowered them. We watched their movies; laughed at their salacious jokes; were titillated by their prurience; and tolerated their mainstreaming obscenity, homosexuality and gratuitous violence. We allowed our children to dress in their ghetto styles and imbibe pure and utter filth. Like with so many other things, we helped create our entertainment — a major symptom of spiritual malaise — and then it helped induce many secondary symptoms. And one of them is Obama.

Of course, nothing is more associated with that symptom than the Shill Media, but I think you know what’s coming. Who bought the mainstream papers for all those decades, watched the nightly news and bought all the lies? “How could people know?” you ask? Well, some certainly knew — and some of those knew better than others.

Like Cicero, I’m sure I sound quite condemnatory, but I’m not here to lay a curse or consign anyone to Hell. I don’t want to be found guilty of the George Bernard Shaw mistake G.K. Chesterton criticized most colorfully when he wrote:

It is not seeing things as they are to think first of a Briareus with a hundred hands, and then call every man a cripple for only having two. It is not seeing things as they are to start with a vision of Argus with his hundred eyes, and then jeer at every man with two eyes as if he had only one. And it is not seeing things as they are to imagine a demigod of infinite mental clarity, who may or may not appear in the latter days of the earth, and then to see all men as idiots.
In reality, for us to have avoided that ever-repeated pattern of civilizational decline, the common man would have to be a very uncommon man, something, in the least, like a sublime moral philosopher. And, certainly, no person will have, metaphorically speaking, a hundred industrious hands, a hundred all-seeing eyes or even come close to enjoying demigod-like mental clarity. Yet a nation doesn’t have to resign itself to being blind and crippled, either. We can usually manage one more hand and eye.

Truth be known, when we elected Obama, the nation said “Look, ma, no hands!” with its eyes closed. It required corrupted judgment to be blind to what Obama was. Note that “corrupted” is different than “corrupt.” When saying a computer file is corrupted, there is no implication that it’s evil; rather, it simply means it no longer functions as it should.

This partially explains why facts often don’t matter today. Just as correct input may not yield correct output if fed into a malfunctioning computer, all the necessary facts may not yield a correct conclusion when processed by a corrupted mind. And anyone with a properly functioning virtue file would have sensed the lack of same in Obama. After all, there were so many indications, from his radical associations to his tolerance for infanticide (that’s what you call a clue) to the fact that he once allowed his then two-year-old daughter to listen to rap to his empty sloganeering. Yes, we could’ve . . . known.

Yet my point here is not about the average person, who isn’t reading substantive commentary anyway. It’s that even most of us who oppose Obama and are political are just political, content to fight the battle with one hand and one eye. So many of us — this includes readers and commentators — are satisfied with boilerplate; it’s Alinsky this and Alinsky that, San Fran Nan, Afghanistan and the Taliban, this bill and that political shill.

This isn’t to say there’s not a place for such things, as many do need a course in politics 101. But if we want to have any chance of winning the war, we must move on to graduate work and fight it on the deepest levels, the spiritual and cultural. We must scrutinize ourselves and evaluate how we have been complicit in empowering the culture that spawns Barack Obamas. We must remember that those of us who are engaged are a minority weighed against an apathetic majority. A few stones however, can be substantial enough to tip the scales against a million pebbles. But this can only happen if we so greatly increase the weight of our virtue that it outweighs the vice that is everywhere.

I once heard a man of the cloth put it perfectly, saying “Everyone is in a different stage of conversion.” Every thought we contemplate, word we utter and action we take move us closer to or further away from perfection. And it’s always time for another hand and another eye.

Some trust in chariots, and some in horses: but we will remember the name of the LORD our God. Psalm 20:7

Sometimes when I sit down to pen a commentary I wish I didn’t have to. I don’t know why the Lord has laid this yoke upon me, but I try to be faithful to the gift and the calling that He has put upon my life. They are irrevocable you know, the gifts and callings of God, so I might as well embrace the work He has left on my desk.

I can’t explain it but sometimes I feel like I have on a different set of glasses. Not rose-colored mind you, but more like binoculars that help me see things that are farther down the road. I can’t explain it, but I know it to be true.

I have always been amazed by guys who can “fix things”, mechanically that is. I can spend all morning trying to figure out how to get my riding lawn-mower operational and then my brother-in-law pulls up, takes one look at the engine, and diagnosis the problem. It is his gift, and I sure wish I had it.

But my gift is a little different. Although I have never been to seminary, or spent time at the feet of great theologians, the Lord has gifted me with the ability to “connect the dots” in regards to the application of Biblical principles as they relate to cultural issues. I think it makes some folks mad, especially the “credentialed pulpiteers.” I know how they feel. I have experienced the same thing with my brother-in-law. I’m the guy with all of the degrees yet I can’t figure out that the spark plug needs cleaned before the engine will start.

Education without application is like tires without air. One without the other leaves one feeling a bit flat.

(I’m still not sure I am making myself clear.) Solomon put it this way. “Wisdom is the principal thing; therefore get wisdom: and with all thy getting get understanding.” Wisdom is the application of knowledge. “Understanding” is the offspring of the union of application and knowledge.

I remember praying a few years ago “Lord, help me see and understand things that others don’t see and understand.” I’ll let you be the judge of whether or not He answered that prayer.

The solutions to the problems facing America are so clear to me. The cause/effect of our cultural collapse is so easy to diagnose. Like my brother-in-law has often said to me while working on a piece of my equipment, “Everything is connected together. All you have to figure out is where the chain is broken. If it isn’t working there has to be a reason. Just follow the trail.” Sorry to be simplistic, but that is how I feel about America. Everything is connected…but we refuse to follow the trail.

So follow along with me as we lift up the hood, check out the spark plugs, and see if we can figure out how to get this baby running. It is my opinion that we are trying to replace the wrong parts. Pardon the corny phraseology, but we are putting the chariot before the horse.

“Some trust in chariots, and some in horses: but we will remember the name of the LORD our God.”

America’s problems are spiritual, they are not mechanical. We can not get out of this problem merely by changing the horses (parts).

We have tried that cure before. Substituting Republicans for Democrats, or liberals for conservatives may change the direction the chariots are pulled but it gets us no closer to the finish line. Political parties and politicians are merely the horses that pull the chariot. Changing them has brought us nothing more than a false sense of hope. Every election we change a few of the horses, hope that things will straighten out, and then lament the fact that the stallions we put into office end up being nothing more than the same old nag.

Trusting in horses has not worked.

Although the word chariot conjures up thoughts of a carriage in which someone rides, a chariot was actually a weapon of war as demonstrated in this video of Charleton Heston in Ben Hur. In our American constitutional republic the constitution has become the chariot, the weapon of choice, for those who want to over-throw this nation. Many patriotic-Americans have labeled themselves “constitutionalists”, and are trusting in that great founding-document to win the war against an ever-expanding, all-powerful government. “If only they would follow the Constitution…”

Although their intentions are good, the reality is that chariot (constitution) is prisoner to the horses and the direction that they choose to pull it. No matter how much we love to point out “original intent,” “separation of powers,” and “government of the people…” the chariot gets pulled in directions that it was never intended to go. The Constitution in which we trust is the very weapon that the horses uses to over-throw the will of the people. Extra-constitutional edicts such at “the separation between the church and state,” the “penumbras” of the constitution, and “equal protection” clauses have run the chariot over those whom it was created to protect.

As long as horses are pulling the chariots there is no hope, and no sense of generational permanence in that document upon which our nation was founded. Allowing its clearly spelled-out principles to be changed at the whim of the latest I-know-better-than-you judge has caused this foundation stone to be crushed into sand. We all know what happens when one builds upon sinking sand…

Trusting in chariots has led us into a swamp. The Constitution is not a stand-alone document. James Madison, the “Father of the Constitution” said, “Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.”

George Washington said “It is impossible to rightly govern a nation without God and the Bible.”

Some men trust in chariots…..

Recently I have been asked to speak at several “Tea-Parties” around these parts. Word has spread very quickly about the zeal, passion, and clarity with which I articulate The American View of our national dilemma. The hearts of men and women are moved as I paint the picture of the consequences of our national rejection of Jesus. But my impassioned plea for “remembering the Lord” has tugged on the bridle of the horses who are not “Christians.”

Some of my recent “invitations” to speak have included a request to “tone down a bit” the “religious part” because some of the “coalition” does not hold my same “religious” views. You see, it is easy to change the horses, or fight with the chariot, than it is to harness the rebellious heart of individual men and women.

Needless to say, I told them what they can do with the horse they rode in on…

The god-haters have told us that our Constitution is a “living, breathing document” designed to change with the times. That attitude is the same one that gave us “living breathing” marriages and mortgage contracts. The US Constitution was a contract between a people and their Creator from whom the rights of the people had been endowed. A contract is only as good as the people who sign it.

Funny isn’t it, our once solid American dollar is in a free fall because the gold that once under girded it has been removed. Remove the firm foundation and a building is destined for collapse. For over two centuries the ordinances of God were the pillars upon which this nation stood. Remove those supports and the Constitution is not worth the paper it was written on.

"To the kindly influence of Christianity we owe that degree of civil freedom, and political and social happiness which mankind now enjoys. . . . Whenever the pillars of Christianity shall be overthrown, our present republican forms of government, and all blessings which flow from them, must fall with them." Jedidiah Morse

I know what my brother-in-law would say… “Better firm up that foundation.” Nothing short of a spiritual transformation can save this nation.

Some men trust in horses, some men trust in chariots….

We need to remember the name of the Lord. Does any national leader have the courage to say so?

[Note: Bill Clinton was from Hope, Arkansas, and his mentor, Professor Carroll Quigley, wrote Tragedy and Hope wherein he described the “hope” of the world as the Power Elite (PE) who run things behind the scenes. Barack Obama’s campaign theme was “hope” via “change.” Is this all just coincidental?]

Responding to the charge that President Obama’s national health care proposals would include “death panels,” John Meachem of Newsweek wrote, “I Was A Teenage Death Panelist” (Sept. 12, 2009) in which he remarked that “the origins of what became the dreaded death panels show the idea to be sensible and humane…. We have to think about death differently…. Without a shift from late-in-life overtreatment to a wider use of the hospice model, costs will continue to grow to a likely unsustainable level.” In the same edition of Newsweek, Evan Thomas (who said Obama is “sort of God”) wrote “The Case for Killing Granny,” in which he commented: “Until Americans learn to contemplate death as more than a scientific challenge to be overcome, our health-care system will remain unfixable…. A significant portion of the savings will have to come from the money we spend on seniors at the end of life.”

The global PE for well over 100 years has been promoting euthanasia. In an earlier NewsWithViews column, I quoted H.G. Wells in Anticipations (1901) describing the coming “world state” where there would be “the merciful obliteration of weak and silly and pointless” people. And in Robert Hugh Benson’s Lord of the World (1907), he said there would be Ministers of Euthanasia (like Jack Kevorkian) in 1998 under American Socialism.

That the PE had the beginning of the 21st century as the time Socialism would be adopted in the U.S. fits with what John Loeffler, host of Steel-on-Steel, referred to as an 80-year period for cultural change. For example, German culture began to change in the mid-1800s, so that by the 1930s, Germans were willing to accept National Socialism (Nazis). Therefore, with the change in American culture beginning in the late 1920s with Socialists like John Dewey, Norman Thomas, etc. the 80-year movement toward Socialism here would be complete about now.

Regarding euthanasia, in Germany in 1920, Dr. Alfred Hoche and Karl Binding authored “The Permission to Destroy Life Unworthy of Life” urging a national policy of assisted suicide for those terminally ill, mentally retarded, or with brain damage or psychiatric conditions. This was similar to the views of Planned Parenthood founder Margaret Sanger regarding those at the beginning of life, when she wrote in The Pivot of Civilization (1922): “There is but one practical and feasible program in handling the great problem of the feeble-minded. That is, as the best authorities are agreed, to prevent the birth of those who would transmit imbecility to their descendents.” A little over 80 years later, Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg in a July 12, 2009 New York Times Magazine interview would say: “I had thought that at the time Roe v. Wade was decided, there was concern about population growth and particularly growth in populations that we don’t want to have too many of.”

Concepts such as Social Darwinism in the late 1800s gave rise to the racial hygiene movement long before the Nazis ascended to power. In 1923, the University of Munich appointed Fritz Lenz to the first German chair in racial hygiene, and in 1931 Lenz commented: “Hitler is the first politician with truly wide influence who has recognized that the central mission of all politics is race hygiene and who will actively support this mission.”

In March 1933, Hitler became Chancellor of Germany, and on October 7, 1933 the Ministry of Justice in Berlin proposed that “it shall be made possible for physicians to end the tortures of incurable patients, upon request, in the interests of true humanity.” In October 1939 (but backdated to September 1, 1939 when WWII began), Hitler authorized Aktion 4 or T4, a program which “granted mercy deaths” to those who physicians determined to be incurables.

Under the Nazis, euthanasia was first practice on the handicapped as they were considered “life unworthy of life.” This was followed by euthanasia against those (e.g., Jews, Gypsies, etc.) whom the Nazis considered “inferior” to their Aryan race. In the 1940s, Josef Mengele became a leader in the Nazi’s euthanasia movement and was known as “the Angel of Death” (see reference to Mengele in my 4-part series “The Power Elite and the Secret Nazi Plan”). It is important here to remember that the Nazi movement was only a subpart of the PE’s larger plan.

During WWII, Jerome Bruner was chief of psychological warfare for General Eisenhower. In the late 1950s, Bruner authored “The Process of Education,” a report of the Woods Hole Conference which would become a guide for educational reformers in the 1960s. Bruner was also director of the Educational Development Center in Cambridge, MA, when in 1964 it produced Man: A Course of Study (MACOS), which was given $6.5 million by the National Science Foundation for its development. Congressman John Conlan criticized federal support for MACOS, which included a positive image of euthanasia such as infanticide and senilicide (e.g., old Eskimos left on ice to die).

In the December 31, 1969 edition of The Christian Century, Sam Keen wrote “The ‘Soft’ Revolution Explored” about an “alteration of consciousness” occurring, saying: “Western civilization has become disillusioned about its ancient romance with the religious and moral ideals of the Judeo-Christian tradition.” He said there was “a change in value orientation” and an “emerging secular religion.” About 25 years later, Keen at the first State of the World Forum in 1995 would evoke loud applause as he declared, “If we cut the world’s population by 90%, there won’t be enough people left to do ecological damage.” Think about what would be required to reduce the earth’s population by 90%!

At the same time Keen wrote his The Christian Century column, New Age spiritualist Elisabeth Kubler-Ross authored On Death and Dying (later testifying to the U.S. Senate in 1972 on death and dying), and The Hastings Center was founded in New York by Willard Gaylin and Daniel Callahan, who would later worry that America is waging a “war against death” (Callahan believed we must accept death). The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation would pay for a special supplement to The Hastings Center Report “Dying Well in the Hospital: the lessons of SUPPORT.”

The year after On Death and Dying was published, in February 1970 Dr. Daniel Leviton (teacher of death education at the University of Maryland) delivered an address titled “The Role of the Schools in Providing Death Education,” in which he asserted: “…We are very much interested in educating parents in order to reduce the spread of that dread disease, ‘hangupitis.’ Public schools would do well to develop related parent education programs in such myth-shrouded areas as human sexuality and death education.” That someone supports death education does not mean necessarily that they support euthanasia. However, getting students “comfortable” with death can lead to suicides, which for many can be a kind of self-imposed euthanasia of depressed people. In September 1972, Dr. Leviton delivered an address titled “Education for Death, or Death Becomes Less A Stranger” at the American Psychological Association convention, in which he cautioned: “I can say that no one enrolled in the Course has suicided to date but it remains a possibility. The instructor in Death Education needs to be prepared for the eventuality of a student’s suicide.”

If students in “Death and Dying” classes go to morgues, feel corpses, view an embalming, rub caskets, sit in coffins, write suicide notes, and are asked to write their own epitaphs or obituaries, is it any wonder they may start to contemplate suicide as a way to get out of their problems? One girl at Columbine High School (where the two student killers wore black garments with swastikas) in Littleton, Colorado said she contemplated suicide after taking a death education course. Even before the Littleton massacre, Tara Becker Merrill of Colorado attempted suicide after a high school class about death, saying she was taught that “death is exciting, appealing, something to look forward to.” Many other students have committed suicide after taking death education or seeing films about suicide. One textbook, Coping With Death and Dying by Robert Russell, contained a section on euthanasia that stated: “Committing suicide may represent a last attempt to make an independent, personal decision.”

At the same time Dr. Leviton was delivering his address in 1970, the movie M.A.S.H. was released with a theme song titled “Suicide is Painless,” and in 1972 a popular TV show titled M.A.S.H. began with the same theme song. That same year (1972), the Center for Teaching International Relations (CTIR) was co-founded at the University of Denver by Josef Korbel (Secretary of State Madeline Albright’s father) and it would produce Death: A Part of Life (by George Otero and Zoanne Harris), which on page 117 included Kamikazee Letters from WWII.

Many, both here and abroad, are wondering now what will become of America. There’s a lot of intense speculation going on these days as to whether we should expect renewal, revival, revolution or the wrath of God.

People are losing their jobs, their businesses, their homes, their families, their pensions and everything they’ve worked a lifetime for. And because the problem is so profound and systemic, there’s really nothing the public or private sector can do to stop our economy from collapsing around us in spite of all the disinformation and outright propaganda to the contrary being manufactured by the government’s mainstream media machine and all those who have a vested interested in keeping the illusion of prosperity alive.

Even the money we use to buy and sell with – the world’s reserve currency – is an illusion that is quickly losing its appeal in the global marketplace. Americans may soon be the only people on earth that take U.S. dollars for goods and services – but for how long is anyone’s guess.

As I write, the Independent is reporting "the demise of the dollar" – that “Arab states have launched secret moves with China, Russia and France to stop using the US currency for oil trading.” Japan and Brazil are reportedly following suit. And, there’s no reason to believe it will stop there.

Because the dollar has long been the world’s reserve currency, most of it has been in circulation and in storage overseas. Imagine what will happen to its value when all of that unwanted currency comes back home to America from the countries that no longer want it or need it.

Remember; the more there is of something, the less it’s worth. An item’s rarity and desirability are what determines its value – not the numbers printed on it.

Take a rock from your front yard down to McDonalds and see if they’ll give you a hamburger for it. My guess is, they won’t since the owner of McDonalds can’t buy more hamburger meat and buns from his supplier with rocks that customers offer him over the counter because rocks are not rare and therefore aren’t valuable. A homeless man can fill his pockets with rocks off the street – but they won’t buy him a hamburger no matter how many he gives the guy behind the register or what numbers he scratches on the rocks that he offers. They’re still just rocks.

When Americans wake up and realize that the dollars they have in their wallets and purses and on account at the bank are little more than surplus paper, they’re not going to desire them anymore than China, Russia, France, Japan or Brazil. When this happens, it’s going to be like shopping with rocks.

The day is coming when food is going to become a lot more rare and desirable than green paper with numbers on it. Even though I’ve never tried it myself, I’m quite sure that money is not very tasty, nutritious or sanitary, for that matter, though it could be filling, I suppose, if you ate enough of it. And, if the gas and electric company quit taking dollars, we could always burn them in our furnaces and fireplaces, if we had to, to stay warm in the winter.

As if our declining economy and currency weren’t enough to bear, we Americans are losing our country as well, along with all the rights, freedoms, privileges and responsibilities that came with being a citizen. In fact, it would appear the United States no longer belongs to its citizens. Even the word “citizen” has lost its meaning here. No, our country belongs to men of great wealth, power and privilege who rule from the shadows, recognize no borders and fear little in life but the light of truth.

From the pew to the pulpit – from Main Street to Wall Street and from the voting booth to Capitol Hill – it’s mostly a charade now – driven by “the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life.” (1st John 2:16)

Should we be surprised? After all, this isn’t the Garden of Eden – nor is it the Promised Land. That means we have no eternal guarantee from God that He’ll sustain us as a nation indefinitely though He did give warning long ago about the hell that awaits nations that forget Him. But, as great and powerful as America once was, I have yet to find any mention of it in scripture. That ought to be humbling and a little disquieting for professing Christians here.

You see, empires come and go. History has taught us that their “15 minutes of fame” is a little over two hundred years which means America has statistically run its course.

So, what do we do now?

Do we take up the sword and our own perceived morality to exact vengeance on those we believe are to blame for the fall of our kingdom or do we take up our cross and follow Jesus to His?

This is the controversial question before us.

America is collapsing not because we have failed to fight our enemies, but because we have forgotten God, and in doing so, have made Him our enemy. Sure, we vehemently claim Him as our own but live day to day like He’s not there or doesn’t care what we think or say or do – like America is God’s home and we have some divine right to reside here forever.

But, that home has become a vain, vulgar and violent place under the throne of a righteous and holy God whose kingdom is not of this world. And, foreclosure is coming friends, because we’ve been living large on borrowed money, borrowed blessings and borrowed time.

“…Repent: for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.” – Matthew 4:17b

By Sheriff Jim R. Schwiesow, Ret.

September 16, 2009

The denizens of the 50’s and the 60’s, upon reflection, will hearken back in their minds to their school days and remember the social events of the time that were the impetus for recurring school safety programs and exercises. These were instituted by an already out of control, and intrusive upon individual choice, government bureaucracy, implemented by school boards and school administrative hierarchies, and carried out by that final supreme authority over student activities - teachers. I am addressing specifically the classic nuclear attack exercises that were an aside from the curricula of those days.

These were always kicked off by startling and incessant clanging bells or hair-raising horns, buzzers and sirens that signaled the imminent phantom approach of red star bedecked Soviet bombers loaded with the ultimate ordinance, Atom -later Hydrogen - bombs that were putatively destined to be poured out upon the heads of all the little captive enrollees in the nation’s schoolrooms and upon the Miss Betties’ Mr. Bobs’ and Mrs. Belles’ who guided their educational pursuits.

My recollection is that most teachers could have won academy awards for their singular performances as nuclear attack wardens. At the sound of the inescapable auditory alerts these would - with worried and concerned countenance affected to impress upon their often somnolent charges the urgency of the situational circumstances - direct the rooms full of tousled heads to get immediately under their tables or desks, sit upon the floor with knees raised, place their heads between their legs and prepare to kiss their fannies goodbye. The boys as I recall called it, “assuming the position”, and often provided a more colorful vernacular for fannies.

I still marvel at the utter and sheer stupidity of those long ago drills, how supposedly intelligent adults could conjure up such useless exercises as a protection against a nuclear attack simply defies an understanding of their mental mechanisms.

The message of those drills however is timely and current, the people of this nation should assume the position and prepare to kiss their fannies goodbye and they should do so expeditiously and with due diligence, because this nation’s days are numbered.


People, it is not greenhouse gasses, over population, limited resources, polar bear and snail darter numbers or ice melt that guides our destiny. It is the almighty and infallible God of all creation, the creator of the heavens and the earth and all that is within and upon the heavens and the earth.

We have arrived at that prophetic point in time of no hope, no outlook, and no reprieve. We have been delivered into the hands of those who connive our inclusion into a new order and who march to the tempo of that dragon of old, Satan the god of this world. Think not that we are conscripts of that new order, we have been delivered by decree and consigned by the holy hand of the Lord God Jehovah who controls Satan and all of his minions, there is no escape from such except by Jesus. “Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.” -Acts 4:12


Out of a collective of perverse peoples have come our tormentors, like malevolent microbes they have infiltrated and infected every branch of our federal government with a despotic and virulent socialism, a precursor to a satanic one-world order, that has filtered down and likewise infected the state and local governments that have eschewed the former sovereignty granted them as independent members of a once great republic. They now drink at the well of the federal socialist revolutionaries. When one hangs out with a skunk one is going to smell like a skunk.

This nation and every one of its social and governmental institutions exude a stench of filthiness and moral decay that permeates the entire union and all of the subdivisions and social institutions thereof. Degeneracy has been institutionalized; deep sexual deviancy, soul-destroying avarice and bestiality of thought have now been woven into the fabric of the nation. Such is given character and incorporated into the structured system by legislative action, presidential decree and most especially by the subjective whims of activist judges.

The Bill of Rights is totally ignored, not one of the ten amendments to the Constitution is upheld as inviolable and all are circumvented by the connivance of the judiciary through intemperate interpretations and judicial despotism. Law enforcement officials are taught calculative procedures designed specifically to evade, circumvent and make malleable the deliberate intractable construction of the amendments of the Bill of Rights.

It has been said that if the entire world would totally obey even one of the Ten Commandments it would have a deeply profound affect upon the integrity of all society. Similarly if the infrangible quality of the ten amendments were to be respected and honored our liberties would be as inviolable as they were meant to be.

Our current judicial system is the glue that holds together all of the godless tenants of social corruption and the offending immoral statutes that have been put into effect by the social degenerates whose numbers now dominate in this nation.


“As for my people, children are their oppressors, and women rule over them. O my people, they which lead thee cause thee to err, and destroy the way of thy paths.” Isaiah 3:12

We are a self-willed gluttonous people chasing continually after all that is inimical and contrary to God’s will. God will not now save us for we have willfully progressed to a point of seared conscience - we have no shame.

One has only to examine the output of the movie industry and the television networks to gauge the egregious depths to which society has fallen. There is seemingly not a wholesome family program to be found on any of the broadcast networks, sodomy is celebrated, fatherless fractured families are featured as normal, and promiscuity and infidelity are given prominence as worthy and exciting. The values destroying message being delivered to young malleable minds should weigh heavily on the conscience of the entire nation, but it does not. Our families are upside down and leaderless, destroyed by our cultural deviance.

Even the TV advertisements are corrupt, the promotion of personal hygiene products and sexual aids are prominent, tasteless and tawdry. Lying actors pretending to be doctors and nurses hawk mind and body destroying pharmaceutical concoctions, and real doctors and nurses sell their integrity to do the same. A sorry stinking mess confronts one daily on the broadcast media.


Without strong leaders of integrity and strong values nations die, this nation is in the throes of that demise and the death struggle intensifies with each succeeding administration. In the main the leaders of this nation are liars and deceivers who pursue personal agendas always, they are self-indulgent and inwardly turned and without an altruistic bone in their body. It is, with them, always about political power and personal gain, their every effort is geared to aggrandizement, and the maintaining of a presence in office that allows them to amass fortunes and to be possessed of opulent perks. Our leaders are leaders in name only; we are in fact essentially leaderless.

Barack Hussein Obama is an extreme example of the foregoing assertions. Please understand that this arrogant gangling-gawky fraud cares not one whit about your health or your ability or inability to access health care. It is entirely about power, he has seized upon the issue to affect his personal agenda, that of moving the nation to totalitarian socialism. From the beginning he had no other plan than this, every time he takes the podium he wings it. He never had a blueprint for an overhaul of the health care system his is a lying endeavor, in terms that everyone can understand he makes it up as he goes along. He is filled with himself, and his self-love has been fed by the accolades and rabid worship of the dimwits in society and an insurgent socialist media. He is a dangerously character-deficient self-worshipping megalomaniac, he thinks that he is a god and will not stop until he has either destroyed himself or the nation, most likely he will destroy both.

Of course Mr. Obama has had much help and assistance in his counterfeit quest, this from the deceived and deluded that ignorantly shore up his completely selfish pursuits. Most of these groups and individuals perceive, in their mind’s eye, the many selfish benefits they believe will emanate from their support of the president; they fail to understand apparently that his goal is not health care reform, but governmental reform.

The American Medical Association and the nation’s nurses have indorsed his plan for health care reform, one wonders what plan they are addressing. If it is the mishmash pending in both houses of congress one has to wonder about the wisdom of our health care providers, it should certainly promote trepidation in those seeking their services.

These are the people that gave us ten-dollar aspirin and Tylenol tablets, twenty-five dollar sanitary napkins and surgical dressings, and five-dollar Q-tips and band-aids. The fact is that many of these have been investigated for bilking the Medicare system out of many millions of dollars through inflated and fraudulent claims. Certainly we have many very fine and ethical individuals within our health care system, but there is enough taint in the profession to question their support of Barack Obama’s boondoggle.

Then we have groups such as the AARP, which whole-heartedly supports and endorses the Obama health care push. Their support for this pending fiasco has greatly increased my already deep disaffection for the AARP. It has always galled me deeply that they claim to represent the interests of all geezers, such as I, in the entire nation. They don’t represent my interests and the fact that they claim to in their self-aggrandizing TV advertisements prompts my disdain and contempt. In reality this feigned concern for the gray and wrinkled set is a cover for the group’s true mission, which is to rake in millions of dollars by hawking a bevy of various insurance programs and sundry other social programs for a take of the loot that is put-up by the gullible elderly who are taken in by their pitch.

Now, this “we’re for the aged” purportedly non-political consortium has joined hands with Obama in his quest for what is a clearly undefined health care reform program. One must assume that they believe that somehow someway they will once again be in line for a take of the loot. This group is as non-political as ACORN, both are darlings of the liberals of both parties, and yes the Republican Party encompasses liberals, they just prefer to be called ‘moderates.”


“We have had our last chance. If we will not devise some greater and equitable system, our Armageddon will be at our door. The problem basically is theological and involves a spiritual recrudescence, an improvement of human character that will synchronize with our almost matchless advances in science, art, literature and all material and cultural developments of the past two thousand years. IT MUST BE OF THE SPIRIT IF WE ARE TO SAVE THE FLESH--General Douglas MacArthur

“And I will break the pride of your power; and I will make your heaven as iron, and your earth as brass: And your strength shall be spent in vain: for your land shall not yield her increase, neither shall the trees of the land yield their fruits. And if ye walk contrary unto me, and will not hearken unto me; I will bring seven times more plagues upon you according to your sins.” -Leviticus 26:19-21

Our worst nightmare is about to burst upon us, in one hour our time will come and none will escape, this nation’s wickedness has predestined a total calamity, only Almighty God could now save us from that ultimate fate, but the pride and arrogance of men stands between our people and God. Men will not save this nation, but you do not have to perish…know that

“If thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.” -Romans 10: 9-10

In the Declaration of Independence, Thomas Jefferson wrote, "Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object, evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security. Such has been the patient sufferance of these Colonies."

I would argue that we, like our patriot forebears, have also endured "patient sufferance." For at least a half-century, we have patiently endured the erosion and abridgment of our freedoms and liberties. We have watched the federal government become an overbearing and meddlesome Nanny State that pokes its nose and sticks its fingers in virtually everything we do. We cannot drive a car, buy a gun, or even flush a toilet without Big Brother's permission. We are taxed, regulated, and snooped-on from the time we are born to the day we die. And then after we are dead, we are taxed again.

In the same way that Jefferson and Company patiently suffered up until that shot was fired that was heard around the world, we who love freedom today are likewise patiently suffering "a long train of abuses and usurpations." In fact, I would even dare say that these States United have become a boiling caldron of justifiable frustration and even anger.

Accordingly, it is incumbent upon us to very seriously and thoughtfully examine those principles that we absolutely will never cede or surrender. We have already surrendered much of the freedom that was bequeathed to us by our forefathers. We are now to the point that we must define those principles that form our "line in the sand" and that we will not surrender under any circumstance. Either that, or we must admit to ourselves that there is nothing--no principle, no freedom, no matter how sacred--that we will not surrender to Big Government.

Here, then, are those principles that, to me, must never be surrendered. To surrender these liberties to Big Government would mean to commit idolatry. It would be sacrilege. It would reduce us to slavery. It would destroy our humanity. To surrender these freedoms would mean "absolute Despotism" and would provide moral justification to the proposition that such tyranny be "thrown off."

*The Right to Keep and Bear Arms.

Men without guns are not free men; they are slaves. Men without guns are not citizens; they are subjects. Men without guns have lost the right of self-defense. They have lost the power to defend their families and protect their properties. Men without guns are reduced to the animal kingdom, becoming prey to the Machiavellians among them who would kill them for sport or for their own personal pursuits. As King Jesus plainly ordered, "He that hath no sword, let him sell his garment, and buy one." (Luke 22:36) This we will do--at all costs.

*The Right to Own Private Property

Like the right of self-defense, the private ownership of property is a God-given right that is rooted in the Sacred Text. As God told Moses, "Thou shalt not remove thy neighbour's landmark, which they of old time have set in thine inheritance, which thou shalt inherit in the land that the LORD thy God giveth thee to possess it." (Deut. 19:14)

In fact, the history of Western Civilization is replete with the examples of free men who were determined (even at the cost of their very lives) to defend the right to own property. Without private property rights, men are reduced to serfs and servants. Like chattel, they feed themselves by another's leave. This we will not do.

*The Right to Train and Educate Our Children

Education has never been the responsibility of the State. From time immemorial, education has been the right and responsibility of the family. This, too, has its foundation in the Sacred Volume. "And, ye fathers, provoke not your children to wrath: but bring them up in the nurture and admonition of the Lord." (Eph. 6:4)

Therefore, the absolute right of homeshooling or private/parochial/Christian schooling must never be surrendered. Homeschooling, especially, is fundamental to freedom. It is not a coincidence that throughout history, most totalitarian governments forbade parents homeschooling their children. Any government--federal, State, or local--that forbids, or even restricts, the right of parents to homeschool their children has taken upon itself the uniform of a tyrant.

*The Freedom of Speech and Worship

Speech and worship are matters of the heart and conscience (Luke 6:45; John 4:24). Only tyrants seek authority over matters of the heart. But, of course, that is what tyrants do: they seek to control men's thoughts and beliefs.

Hence, the alternative media is essential to liberty: the Internet, short wave radio, as well as independent magazines and periodicals. It is almost superfluous to say that there is no such thing as a free and independent press among the mainstream news media today. In fact, the major media more resembles a propaganda machine than it does a free press.

The same can be said for most of the mainstream churches in America today. They more resemble havens for politically correct, Big-Government ideology than they do bastions of Bible truth. Therefore, home-churches and non-establishment churches are increasingly requisite to a free people.

*The Right to Determine One's Own Healthcare

The marriage of Big Government and Big Medicine has created a healthcare monster. Already, the dispensing of medical treatment is micromanaged by Big Brother in a way that has resulted in skyrocketing costs and inferior care (and in some cases, even death). President Obama's universal health care initiatives that are sure to come (in one form or another) will only exacerbate an already untenable situation.

Free men and women absolutely have the right to refuse vaccinations for themselves and their children. Forced vaccinations (of any kind) are an assault against the very foundation of freedom. Free men have the right to choose their own physicians, their own hospitals, their own insurance programs, etc. They also have the right to refuse any and all of the above.

God is Creator. He is also Healer (Exodus 15:26). Therefore, how men choose to seek God's healing is a private matter between them and God. Alternative medicine is a right. Already, our military personnel are used as human guinea pigs to test a variety of drugs and chemicals. Public schools also require forced vaccinations. And now the push is on to force the general population to take the Swine Flu vaccine. At the current pace, it won't be long until all alternative medicines and treatments will be illegal and the federal government will be America's doctor. This is not acceptable.

*The Right to Life

2000 years of Western Civilization have perpetually reconfirmed that life is a gift of God. Both Biblical and American history repeatedly honor God as the Source and Sustainer of man's existence. Therefore, evils such as abortion, infanticide, and euthanasia must be vehemently resisted. It is bad enough that any government (especially one such as ours) would legalize abortion, but the concept of FORCED abortion, infanticide, or euthanasia could only be regarded as a despotic attack on life and liberty of the gravest proportion. In fact, under Natural Law, such an attack would remove said government from the protection of Heaven and would place it in a state of war.

*The Right to Live as a Free and Independent People

God separated the Nations (Genesis 11). Therefore, it is absolutely necessary that we Americans maintain our independence and national sovereignty. We simply cannot (and will not) allow ourselves to become part of any hemispheric or global union.

There they are: seven freedom-principles that are not negotiable. As Jefferson said, we are "disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable." But cross these lines and free men must do what free men must do: "throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security."

Big trouble, even a bigger God
Posted: Sunday, October 11, 2009

Big trouble, but even a bigger God.


The article below was in the Jerusalem Post today, when you tie this information together with my last few reports you can very easily come to the conclusion war is very near.

It is also interesting to know that Turkey has cancelled its Joint Air Force Drill with Israel stating that it was because Israel would be using the same war planes that bombed Gaza. As a result Italy and the NATO FORCES also pulled out in protest against Turkey's move.

It might be good to consider the Scripture of Ezekiel 38:6 where it says "Togarmah of the north quarters" is one of the five that will join with Russia to attack Israel. Over the past few months the Prime Minister of Turkey has made several trips to Syria and Iran making sure they know whose side Turkey will be on. Togarmah was the grand-son of Noah and he settled in today's Turkey.

To put in a nut shell, the war drums have never beat so loud, and the entire world will be affected in many ways.

Israel, US to simulate response to war


Israel and the United States, amid growing tensions with Iran, will simulate interoperability between missile defense systems this week during the biennial Juniper Cobra missile defense exercise.

The exercise, set to simulate a response in the event of war between Israel, the Islamic republic, Syria and Hezbollah, will begin on Monday and end on Friday. More than 1,000 American troops from the European Command in Stuttgart, Germany have deployed in Israel for the exercise - mostly in the Negev - in addition to some 15 missile ships, some of them carrying the Aegis ballistic missile defense system.

Adm. Mark Fitzgerald, commander of the US Navy's Sixth Fleet, will oversee the exercise alongside senior officers from EUCOM and the US Missile Defense Agency. On the Israeli side, the commander of the exercise will be the new head of the Israel Air Force's Air Defense Division, Brig.-Gen. Doron Gavish.

On Friday, Iranian cleric Mojtaba Zolnour, who is Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei's representative in the Revolutionary Guard, said that if a US or Israeli missile lands in Iran, Iranian missiles will hit Israel in retaliation.

"Should a single American or Zionist missile land in our country, before the dust settles, Iranian missiles will blow up the heart of Israel," Zolnour was quoted as saying by the state IRNA news agency.

In March, Iran's deputy army chief made similar remarks, warning that his country would eliminate Israel if it attacked the Islamic republic.

Should Israel take any action against Iran, we will eliminate Israel from the scene of the universe," Gen. Muhammad Reza Ashtiani said at the time in Teheran.

Ashtiani claimed Israel was "very vulnerable" and dismissed allegations that Iran was worried about Israeli maneuvers.

"Due to its special conditions, Israel is very vulnerable in the region," he said. "The aggressors will face a crushing response."

The Juniper Cobra exercise will include the Arrow missile defense system as well as three American systems - the THAAD, Aegis and PAC-3 - that will all be deployed in Israel for the duration of the exercise.

The purpose of the exercise, defense officials said, was to ensure that if there were a need, the Israeli Arrow 2 ballistic missile defense system would be capable of working with American systems that might be deployed here to bolster Israeli defenses.

Israel is in the midst of developing a multi-layered missile system that starts with the Arrow for long-range missiles; the David's Sling for medium-range missiles, that is currently under development and will be operational in a few years; and the Iron Dome to counter short-range rockets, which will be deployed along the Gaza border in the coming year.

According to some media reports, Juniper Cobra will involve limited live fire from the Israeli and US defense systems. Israeli defense officials would not confirm the reports, but said that it was possible that, following the exercise, the US would decide to leave in Israel some of the systems, most likely the Patriot PAC-3 defense system.

Expectations in Israel are that the US will deploy several Aegis ballistic missile ships - which are capable of intercepting ballistic missiles - in the Mediterranean and Red seas. Israel is already home to the advanced X-Band radar that the Bush administration gave as a farewell gift last October.

Connie and I will be once again traveling in Turkey over the next week and we ask for your prayers. There is still so much to be accomplished in the area of communications and safe routes. Still we need more contacts in Europe in the Jewish community to add to what we already have made.

But again the most important thing we need is a larger boat and we have precious little time to buy one, please pray with us.

Pray for the peace of Jerusalem, for our son Joel and all the IDF soldiers. Pray for this Ministry and your part in it.

Shalom, jerry golden
