The phony Mideast debate
Exclusive: Joseph Farah clears up historical myths meant to cast Israel as Goliath

By Joseph Farah

Israel has lost its best friend and ally in the world – the United States of America.

There's no denying the fact that Barack Obama has dramatically shifted U.S. policy toward the Middle East in a way that favors the so-called "Palestinian" cause at the expense of the Jewish state.

Back in 1967, the world was stunned and amazed as the underdog state of Israel, surrounded by Arab armies, seemingly on the verge of annihilation, routed its enemies in six days. There was no talk of a "Palestinian state" in 1967. The Arab states were determined to destroy Israel and claim the territory for themselves. There had been no state of Palestine before – not in the entire history of the world.

But after that stunning military victory by Israel, a new strategy was developed by Yasser Arafat, with the support of the Arab countries, to change tactics and reframe the terms of the debate over the conflict.

Instead of a war of conquest by numerically superior Arab armies, Arafat, with the help of the Soviet Union, began a long campaign to redefine the struggle as one by indigenous people, the Palestinians, to liberate their land from foreign occupiers.

Never mind that Arafat himself was an Egyptian or that most of the so-called "Palestinians" had actually been citizens of Jordan or other Arab countries and had freely emigrated to Israel because of its economic boom over the previous decades, coinciding with Jewish immigration and ingenuity. The historical narrative had been successfully rewritten. And historical narratives are powerful propaganda devices.

Do you believe in miracles? Learn how Israel has persevered despite its many enemies, in the DVD chronicle: "Against All Odds: Israel Survives"

Today, billions of people all over the world actually believe that the "Palestinians" are just in their quest for a homeland they never knew, a homeland that never existed, a homeland that is as fictitious as their rewritten historical narrative.

Myths can be powerful. Myths can be difficult to overcome. Myths are what shape the Middle East debate and conflict today.

The talk of "justice" for Palestinians resonates in the ears of the world. Israel, once seen as David, has been successfully recast in the public's mind as a Goliath.

Obscured amid all the mythmaking has been the actual title deed to the land of Israel.

To whom does it actually belong?

Historically, there is no question about that.

The Jews were largely driven out of the land in the first century, dispersed throughout the whole world. But the Jews, unlike perhaps any other people in the history of the world, maintained their Jewish culture and identity – always longing for a return to their one and only homeland as promised by God in their holy Scriptures.

Once conquered, the land of Israel was neglected and remained largely uninhabited. A Jewish presence was always maintained there. At the beginning of the 20th century, this was still the case – with the majority of the population of Jerusalem and surrounding areas being Jewish.

The world watched in the 1930s and 1940s as Adolf Hitler began his extermination campaign against the Jews. The world prevented Jews from escaping to the U.S. and to the land now known as Israel. Half the world's Jewish population was killed.

Even after that horrific Holocaust, there was international resistance to the Jews returning to their one and only homeland, still largely unpopulated, untamed, undeveloped.

But, just as the prophet Isaiah foretold (Isaiah 66:8) in the Jewish Scriptures, the nation of Israel was, in 1948, reborn in a day.

This is not occupation, as the world suggests. This is a people defending their one and only homeland against the most vicious and unjustified attacks imaginable.

Is it any wonder Barack Obama would be on the wrong side of this conflict?

Let me suggest that being on the wrong side of this conflict is, definitionally, being on the wrong side of history and on the wrong side of God's plan for all humanity.
July 8 A heavy downpour hit the Columbus area late last week, causing rapid and extensive
runoff into Short Creek. The reservoir rose quickly and topped the spillway.
The water was the color of tea on Friday July 2 and Wednesday it is like black coffee and getting darker every day.
An oily film could be seen floating on top of much of the reservoir, where the water had receded, shoreline vegetation was black.
The whole shoreline was solid with dead fish and it was stinking. Nobody went swimming. Nobody. Everybody stayed on shore.
Short Creek Dam Recreation Area is just north of Columbus ND. The reservoir covers 108 acres.
What about tapwater? Dont light a match near it! Is it safe? Not likely.

NATO Orders 7,000 US Marines warships to Costa Rica
Curiouser and curiouser . . . .
My friend J believes something very bad will occur tomorrow, Sunday July 11th.
Blow up in the gulf? Attack on Iran? GET SET! GET SET:

July 10 NEW speculation WHY U.S. ships are there - they would SINK if they remain in the Gulf.
Whats wrong with that news? There are hundreds of ships in the gulf NOW, are they riding lower in the water? Dunno.
If you live in ANY of the gulf states including Florida YOU NEED to be daily following my evacuation blog,
and SERIOUSLY praying about picking up and leaving - ASAP! This means without delay.

July 8 NATO has ordered 7,000 US Marines to Costa Rica, Central America over fears the
Gulf of Mexico disaster is about to rupture the fracture zone lying between the North American and Caribbean Plates, unleashing a
catastrophic earthquake. NATO has taken defacto control over the Gulf of Mexico oil disaster from B Hussein Obama - GOOD!
The United States may be preparing for an invasion from Russia. EXCELLENT new posts on forum link!
Costa Rica, follow in my forum:

Gulf of Mexico Disaster was INTENTIONAL
This is FAR worse than what the news is telling everyone. Think Mount St. Helens underwater.
Even CNN's Anderson Cooper has asked if this Gulf disaster was "STAGED."

- The COREXIT chemical sprayed over the Gulf of Mexico is destroying the ships in that sea.
- July 7 - 4 known dead in last 10 days after swimming at Gulf beaches
- HOSPITAL - the toxic chemicals in gulf can cause pneumonia and respiratory failure

'E,' a Christian friend of mine with a steady head on his shoulders and a close friendship with the Lord believes a methane bubble will indeed blow up, fire, tsunami.

E wrote
I think the methane explosion, tsunami disater in the Gulf WILL occur to bring down the USA as a superpower and set up the
next sequence of events including martial law and persection of Christians. There is a plan to destroy the USA economically,
politically and spiritually, and to bring in the New World Order. With the USA reduced to a third world cripple, the plan will continue in force.

God has plans of His own, and this disaster may fit into those plans. The USA may say, "What the heck?" and loose war in various spots.
They may think, "What is the sense in holding back now?" Also, we can look for collateral damage from the methnae explosion,
in that in will shut down ALL or most Gulf oil pumping and delivery from that region, and the USA will be shut down due to lack of gasoline.

Florida will be decimated with millions dead or missing, as will all the gulf states, and even parts of South (and Central) America
and maybe even Cuba and Mexico. All the rigs will be affected in one way or the other, and I suspect that pumping will cease,
which is what they want, and they will be forced to go the Middle East to get the oil.
Game on! Watch out for Russia and China at this point to attack with their nuclear weapons and invade to stabilize America.

The ramifications we can not begin to imagine, but looting, murder, martial law, killing of "undesirables" will be in full force.
Americans will not rally and USA may split as a result along the New Madrid fault.
Basically, the worst case scenario. A nation of refugees is possible. Famine, above mentioned tragedies, and dollar collapse are in this mix.

Richard C. Hoagland video reports on BP oil spill gas bubble. 2 Parts
The CATASTROPHE in the gulf has not even BEGUN. What we know is NOTHING compared to what Richard is saying.
CLAIM - No bouyancy, cant swim, ships sink. What he says I dont comprehend, but I do understand 'ships sink.'
NEW speculation WHY U.S. ships are in Costa Rica - they would SINK if they remain in the Gulf.

Depth recorders have detected a gas bubble growing under the ocean floor around the well head.
GPS measurements found that it is over 15 miles wide.
If this explodes, impending disaster could be awaiting millions of residents in the gulf states. An eruption will create a tsunami.

Obama is destroying America INTENTIONALLY to bring in the NWO (new world order, world government),
the 666 beast system of Revelation chapter 13 - Agenda 21 eugenics.

We are entering into a period of time the bible describes as the beginning of sorrows and the time of Jacobs (Israel) troubles,
the TRIBULATION PERIOD. Are you ready? Pray up and repent of your sins. REPENT means to TURN AWAY FROM your sins.

BLOG post July 9 2010 update from a CIA in the Gulf
He said plans to evacuate the Gulf area are still in place. They will use an upcoming hurricane as justification.
Although BP says they will cap the well in a couple weeks, that is false. The methane gas bubble is getting bigger,
and if it explodes, over a million people could die. Those are his exact words, he is a man of his word.
When I asked him if we were about to go to war with Iran, he just said, "next question".
But if I ask him something that is already leaked to the public, he can confirm or debunk it.

CATASTROPHE! link proves this was planned, intentional on Page 9 and page 18 shows you WHY.

Timeline 2010 to 2019: Events on the Calendar That Could be Very Significant
- Bill Koenig

I will continue to add new information to our timeline as it is discovered and revealed. Never before have there been so many biblically significant events evolving at such a rapid pace.

The peace talks in Israel could lead to the Daniel 9:27 seven-year peace covenant and Benjamin Netanyahu could be the leader who would sign for Israel.

Major earth cycles pertaining to Israel, Jerusalem and the U.S. are beginning to occur in 2010 — with many converging in 2011; Eric Hadik has shared that with us, with more coming from him soon.

Accuweather's Chief Hurricane Meteorologist Joe Bastardi predicts a total of 16-18 storms this hurricane season that begins June 1 and ends Nov. 30. To put that in perspective, only eight years in the 160 years of records have had 16 or more storms in a season.

The back-to-back 'blood-red' total lunar eclipses on the first day of Passover and Sukkoth in 2014 and 2015 is very significant. Three previous sets of back-to-back "blood-red" lunar eclipses occurred right after/or at the time of a very trying times for Jews — with the last two being at the time of two major wars in Israel.
The blood-red moons occurred on the first day of Passover and Sukkoth in the two years after the end of the Spanish Inquisition in 1492 (1493-1494), the two years after Israel's War of Independence in 1948 (1949-1950), and the same year and the year after the Six-Day War in 1967 (1967-1968).

The 2014 and 2015 back-to-back "blood-red" moons on the first day of Passover and Sukkoth will be the last time this century and the eighth time since Jesus Christ was on earth. (From Mark Biltz's 2008 study: click here)

The 50th anniversary of the reunification of Jerusalem falls on May 27, 2017 (Sivan 2, 5778).

The 70th anniversary of Israel’s statehood falls on April 20, 2018 (Iyar 5, 5779).

A major earthquake, fitting the 14-year pattern, is expected in 2018, which will be Israel's 70th anniversary (more details below).
The Significance of the Time Frame

The peace talks in Israel are moving into a very serious stage; there is an increasing chance that a Psalm 83 war, a major conflict with Hezbollah and Hamas, could be near — which could lead to their demise and the possible fulfillment of Isaiah 17:1 pertaining to the destruction of Damascus.

The battle is intensifying over the city of Jerusalem; the relations of Russia, Iran, Syria, and Turkey are becoming more problematic; there is a rapid movement towards biometric IDs; and the world is quickly moving towards one-world financial, political and religious order and rapid moral decline.

Earth Cycles Converging in 2010-2011, Playing Out Until 2018 - Eric Hadik
Click here for Eric's 'Insiide Track' web site

Eric has shared with us in our recent news reports the converging of major earth cycles pertaining to the Kingdom of Jerusalem; Jerusalem wars; and April cycles pertaining to Israel and the U.S.

He has said there is a new swarm of significant — and potentially catastrophic — volcanic eruptions expected from 2012-2014 with precursor eruptions expected in 2010 and 2011.

He said that while much of current, global economic attention has been focused on the so-called 'PIIGS' (Portugal, Ireland, Italy, Greece and Spain), the following discussion focuses on a global eruptive group of 'PIIGS' (Pacific, Italy, Iceland, Greece and South America) that are at the highest (cyclic) risk of major volcanic activity.

Similar to the earthquake swarm cycles that have been detailed the past several years (and which portended major events in 2010/2011, including expectations for South American/Chilean earthquakes in the February/May/August/November 90-day-period time frames), the volcanic swarm cycle is also linked to the sun’s 11-year sunspot cycle that just bottomed in 2009 and is increasing now.

However, it is the 22-year sunspot cycle (every other sunspot cycle when the sun's polarity returns to where it was two cycles previously) that has been the most consistent and which augers major volcanic eruptions in Europe (northern and southern borders), South America (Chile, in particular) and the Pacific. However, the United States also plays into this analysis in the coming years.

Major earthquakes cycles point to major events in 2011 and 2018 based on 14-year and 70-year cycles.

Major record-setting worldwide earthquakes have occurred every 14 years since 1906. The years: 1906, 1920, 1934, 1948, 1962, 1976, 1990 and 2004.

A major earthquake, fitting the 14-year pattern, is expected in 2018, which is also Israel's 70th anniversary.

The U.S. dollar: U.S. and world financial market cycles are converging from 2010 to 2014.
We Have Potential Financial Implosions

Note: These are not to alarm people but to keep us informed, prayerful and conservative.

President Barack Obama is poised to increase the U.S. debt to a level that exceeds the value of the nation’s annual economic output, a step toward what Bill Gross of Pimco called a “debt super cycle.” U.S. Federal deficit just passed $13 trillion.

Obama's federal deficits in the $1.5 trillion annual range with continued decrease in tax revenue to service the debt, Social Security and Medicare: The Wall Street Journal's Jerry Seib writes that the federal budget deficit has become so large, it's time to consider it a natural security threat.

U.S. Commercial real-estate loans are the second-largest loan type after home mortgages. Banks hold more than half of the $3.4 trillion in outstanding commercial real-estate debt. Deutsche Bank AG has projected those commercial-real-estate losses for banks could end up being as high as $300 billion. (Oct. 15, 2009 – The Wall Street Journal)

The percentage of U.S. homeowners who owe more than their house is worth will nearly double to 48 percent in 2011 from 26 percent at the end of March, portending another blow to the housing market, Deutsche Bank said on Wednesday, Aug. 5, 2009.

In fiscal 2011 and 2012, the U.S. states are expected to face another combined budget deficit of $260 billion, with the 2011 shortfall in places such as New Jersey, Illinois, Nevada and Arizona projected to be more than 35 per cent of last year’s budget according to the Financial Times.

Forty percent of U.S. junk bonds to default by 2013 according to Bank of America in September 2009.

The precarious financial derivatives exposure: A $670 trillion, high-risk, out-of-control casino that's highly leveraged versus the $50 trillion total annual GDP of all nations. We forget that derivatives almost destroyed global economies in 2008-2009, and could once again by 2012.

In the three years beginning in 2012, more than $700 billion in risky, high-yield corporate debt will start to mature. And that could really drop a hammer down on the junk bond market.

The European Central Banks (ECB's) Financial Stability Review said in the first week of June that banks must renew about 800 billion euros (950 billion dollars) in debt by the end of 2012, and that they would be competing head-on with governments in bond markets.
"In view of the considerable near-term funding needs of euro area governments, a particular concern is the risk of bank bond issuance being crowded out, making it challenging to roll over a sizeable amount of maturing bonds by the end of 2012," the central bank said.

Further economic collapse potential of other European countries. The U.S. is currently on the hook for up to $54 billion in the Greek bailout in a worse-case scenario.

The U.S. debt will top $13.6 trillion this year and climb to an estimated $19.6 trillion by 2015, according to a Treasury Department report to Congress.
Timeline 2010 to 2019

We will continue to add to the timeline as we discover more relevant events, dates and cycles.


January 12 – Haiti's 7.0 earthquake

February 27 – Chile's 8.8 earthquake

March 19 - Quartet (US, UN, EU and Russia) meets in Moscow and calls on Israel to stop construction in East Jerusalem, freeze settlement construction and begin proximity talks with the Palestinians.

March 20 - Iceland's Eyjafjallajokull volcano erupted for first time in 200 years.

Intelsat said it lost control of the Galaxy 15 satellite on April 5, possibly because the satellite's systems were knocked out by a solar storm. Intelsat cannot remotely steer the satellite to remain in its orbit, so Galaxy 15 is creeping toward the adjacent path of another TV communications AMC-1 satellite that serves U.S. cable companies. This could be a precursor to the major solar storm expected on May 2013 when some of the world’s 940 satellites will be at risk.

April 14-19 - European air space shut down due to ash from Iceland volcano. Over 100,000 flights cancelled costing $1.7 billion in damages. The ashes spread over Europe during Europe's Holocaust Remembrance Week (April 11-18).

April 19-20 - Israel's Independence Day - "There is a confluence of two very worrying events," said Michael Freund, a rightist columnist for The Jerusalem Post in a telephone interview. "One is the Iranian threat, an existential threat. Add to that the fact that for the first time in recent memory there is a president in the White House who is not overly sensitive to the Jewish state and its interests. You put the two together and it will affect anyone's mood, even an optimist like me."

April 20 - Indyk: Netanyahu must choose: Obama or his right-wing Likud Party.

April 20 - Major Gulf of Mexico oil spill begins at Horizon.

May 2 - Nashville flood damages estimated at $1.5 billion in that city alone, with more in Tennessee and Kentucky.

May 5-8 - George Mitchell in Jerusalem for peace talks.

May 5-13 - Iran, Syria and Hezbollah pounding the war drums. Iran developing cruise missile. Kicked off new "eight-day" war games and military maneuvers in the strategic Persian Gulf waters, the country's second military show of force in less than a month.

May 10 - Greek debt crisis - EU and US commit $1 trillion to keep euro from collapsing.

May 11 - Russia considering providing nuclear energy technology to Syria and Turkey.

May 11 - Accuweather's Chief Hurricane Meteorologist Joe Bastardi predicts a total of 16-18 storms this season. To put that in perspective, only eight years in the 160 years of records have had 16 or more storms in a season.

May 31 - June 6 - Israel and Turkey at serious odds over flotilla incident. Turkey is continuing to align with Iran and Russia, which are key countries in the Gog and Magog force spoken of in Ezekiel 38-39. Israel being further isolated internationally.
King Abdullah of Saudi Arabia visited the White House on the 1th of Tammuz (June 29) to discuss Middle East peace and other issues.
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu visited the White House and committed to peace talks as soon as possible with Palestinians security guarantees.

Netanyahu told the Council of Foreign Relations (CFR) in New York on Thursday, July 8, 2010, that all core issues could be discussed in direct negotiations, and that if it were up to him, a peace deal with the Palestinians could be signed by the end of 2011.

April 19 - First Day of Passover.

May 9, 2011 (Iyar 10, 5771) - 63rd anniversary of Israel's statehood.

Sunspot cycle’s will continue increasing in intensity.

Major earthquakes expected in January consistent with two-year and seven-year cycles.

Jerusalem war cycle.

Kingdom of Jerusalem cycle.

Earthquake cycle.

Volcano eruptions 2011 to 2013.

Solar storm cycles expected to increase the intensity of volcano eruptions, earthquakes and super storms and disrupt satellites and technologies on earth.

The satellite totals: US 437; Russia 95; China 58; Japan 44; India 22; Britain 21

A new swarm of significant — and potentially catastrophic — volcanic eruptions is expected from 2012-2014 with precursor eruptions expected in 2010 and 2011.

Wired Magazine: The 2012 apocalypse: The next period of intense solar activity is expected in 2012 and coincides with the presence of an unusually large hole in Earth's geomagnetic shield.

U.S. Presidential and Congressional elections — November 2012.

In the three years beginning in 2012, more than $700 billion in risky, high-yield corporate debt will start to mature. And that could really drop a hammer down on the junk bond market.
"An avalanche is brewing in 2012 and beyond if companies don't get out in front of this,” Kevin Cassidy, a senior credit officer at Moody’s Investors Service, told The New York Times.

The result is a potential financial doomsday, or what bond analysts call a maturity wall. From $21 billion due this year, junk bonds are set to mature at a rate of $155 billion in 2012, $212 billion in 2013 and $338 billion in 2015.

Next in line are companies with investment-grade credit ratings. They must refinance $1.2 trillion in loans between 2012 and 2014, including $526 billion in 2012.

NASA says Solar Cycle 24 will peak in May 2013 with a below-average number of sunspots. The great geomagnetic storm of 1859, for instance, occurred during a solar cycle of about the same size we're predicting for 2013."

The 1859 storm — known as the "Carrington Event" after astronomer Richard Carrington who witnessed the instigating solar flare — electrified transmission cables, set fires in telegraph offices, and produced Northern Lights so bright that people could read newspapers by their red and green glow.
A recent report by the National Academy of Sciences found that if a similar storm occurred today, it could cause $1 trillion to $2 trillion in damages to society's high-tech infrastructure and require four to 10 years for complete recovery. For comparison, Hurricane Katrina caused "only" $80 to 125 billion in damages.

Under the Obama budget, interest would top 18 percent of revenue in 2018 and 20 percent in 2020, CBO projects. But under more adverse scenarios than the CBO considered, including higher interest rates, Moody's projects that debt service could hit 22.4 percent of revenue by 2013.

About 40 percent of all U.S. junk bonds outstanding in late 2008 will likely default by 2013 as government aid measures end and a wall of corporate debt comes due, Bank of America Merrill Lynch said on Thursday, Sept. 17, 2009.

Three previous back-to-back "blood-red" total lunar eclipses occurred on the first day of Passover and Sukkoth right after the 1492 Spanish Inquisition (in years 1493-1494), the 1948 War of independence (in years 1949-1950), and the 1967 Six-Day War (in the years 1967-1968), this pattern points to a very challenging time for Israel and war.

The Jewish Talmud says, "When the moon is in eclipse, it is a bad omen for Israel … If its face is as red as blood, [it is a sign that] the sword is coming to the world …"

The sages in the Talmud understood that a red lunar eclipse means that God will be bringing judgment to His people, Israel.

April 15 - Blood-red moon - First day of Passover (visible: Australia, Pacific, Americas).

Aug. 5 – 9th of Av.
The sabbatical year in the seven-year cycle (2008 to 2015) begins on Rosh Hashanah on Sept. 25, 2014, and ends on Rosh Hashanah on September 13-14, 2015 — the day of a partial solar eclipse.

Oct. 8 - Blood-red moon - First day of Sukkot (visible: Asia, Australia, Pacific, Americas).

April 4 - Blood-red moon - First day of Passover (visible: Asia, Australia, Pacific, Americas).

July 26 - 9th of Av.

A seven-year cycle that began on Rosh Hashanah on Sept. 30, 2008, ends on Rosh Hashanah on Sept. 13-14, 2015. The sabbatical year from 2014 ends here, too.

Sept. 13 (Elul 10, 5776) - Partial solar eclipse on Rosh Hashanah.

Sept. 23 (Elul 20, 5777) - Year of Jubilee proclaimed on Yom Kippur.

May 27 (Sivan 2, 5778) - 50th anniversary of the reunification of Jerusalem.

Nov. 2 (Cheshvan 13, 5778) - 100th anniversary of the Balfour agreement.

The "blood-red" lunar eclipse sequences of 2018 and 2019 fall on the Jewish holiday Tu B’shvat (New Year of Trees). This marks the beginning of the "new year" for trees.

Tu B'Shvat is the New Year for the purpose of calculating the age of trees for tithing. The Torah states that fruit from trees which were grown in the land of Israel may not be eaten during the first three years; the fourth year's fruit is for G-d, and after that, the fruit can be eaten. Each tree is considered to have aged one year as of Tu B'Shvat, no matter when in the year it was planted.

It is customary to plant trees and partake of the fruits of the land of Israel to mark the occasion.

Jan. 31 - Blood-red moon - Tu B'shvat.

April 20 (Iyar 5, 5779) - 70th anniversary of Israel's statehood –
Yom Ha'atzmaut (national Independence Day of Israel).
