ascists Falling Out: Obama’s BFF Won’t Take His Calls

ascists Falling Out: Obama’s BFF Won’t Take His Calls

Erdogan Obama
When Obama was asked who his most favorite, most trusted ally was on the world stage, Obama answered, Turkish Prime Minister Erdogan — the embattled dictator who has hurled Turkey back to the stone age. Erdogan has destroyed freedom in his country, attacked his own people and has all but abandoned Ataturk.
This was Obama’s favorite. Astonishing. Well, maybe not.
First Reggie Love, now Recip. Obama must be inconsolable.
‘I no longer talk to Obama’: Turkey’s Erdogan
AFP , Tuesday 22 Jul 2014
Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan said he has stopped talking to US President Barack Obama on the phone, amid growing strains between Ankara and Washington over Syria and the Gaza conflict.
Turkey, a fierce opponent of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad and an open supporter of armed rebel fighters, felt betrayed when the United States backed away from military action against Damascus in September.
“In the past, I was calling him (Obama) directly. Because I can’t get the expected results on Syria, our foreign ministers are now talking to each other,” Erdogan said in a live interview on pro-government ATV channel late Monday.
“And I have talked to (US Vice President Joe) Biden. He calls me and I call him.
“I expect justice in this process. I couldn’t imagine something like this from those who are championing justice,” Erdogan added without elaborating, in an apparent jibe at Washington.
The last phone conversation between the two leaders took place on February 20 after which the White House released a statement accusing Erdogan of misrepresenting the content of the conversation.
A staunch advocate of the Palestinian cause, Erdogan has recently been at loggerheads with Washington over Israel’s offensive in the besieged Gaza Strip that has killed more than 580 Palestinians in two weeks.
Erdogan accused  Israel of carrying out “state terrorism” and a “genocide” of Palestinians and criticised the United States for defending Israel’s “disproportionate” tactics.
The US State Department branded his comments on Israel “offensive and wrong” but the prime minister hit back by saying the United States needed to engage in “self-criticism”.
Erdogan is standing in August 10 presidential elections that he is expected to win, with analysts awaiting a more assertive foreign policy from Ankara if he becomes head of state.


The Enemies of Israel — Their Ultimate End

Biblical Research Monthly, October - December 1968 — by Dr. David L. Cooper

I. God's Attitude Toward Anti-Semites

1. God to curse those who curse Israel

Those who curse Israel shall be cursed (Genesis 12:3). No weapon that is formed against Israel shall prosper (Isaiah 54:17). These Scriptures are of vital importance on this subject. Genesis 12:1-3 constitutes the cornerstone, the monument, of all prophecy. No one can mistreat the Jew and get away with it, as we say.
Now Jehovah said unto Abram, Get thee out of thy country, and from thy kindred, and from thy father's house, unto the land that I will show thee: and I will make of thee a great nation, and I will bless thee, and make thy name great; and be thou a blessing: and I will bless them that bless thee, and him that curseth thee will I curse: and in thee shall all the families of the earth be blessed.” (Genesis 12:1-3)
These verses constitute the second call of God to Abram. When Abram was in Ur of Chaldea, God-called him to leave everything; to separate from his parents; leave his brothers, friends, and all his possessions; and to go to the land that God would show him. Abram obeyed partially. He went from Ur and stopped at Haran, near Carchemish, in upper Mesopotamia (Acts 7:2-5). But God would not allow him to go any farther because he had taken his father with him. So he had to remain there in upper Mesopotamia until his father died. Then God gave him his second call, the one recorded in Genesis 12:1-3. It is a marvelous, wonderful statement. It is a sevenfold promise, or covenant, into which God entered with Abram.
“I will make of thee a great nation” - not numerically, thus far - but “I will make of thee a great nation.” I do not believe that there is a nation on the face of the globe that is great like the nation of Israel. She is God's choicest vine. God went down into Egypt, got the choicest vine upon the face of the globe - the Jewish people - brought it into the Promised Land and planted it there; and there He gave it the most advantageous opportunities (Psalm 80:8ff). Yet it bore wild grapes instead of luscious, sweet, good grapes, as Isaiah, chapter 5, reveals. But Israel — this vine — is a great nation.
“I will bless thee, and make thy name great”. He certainly has blessed the Jewish people though He has had to punish them severely from time to time, and is doing so at the present time. He will yet punish them as He has never punished any other nation. He punishes them double for their sins. A Gentile does something, and God punishes him, giving him one stroke. The Jew does the same thing, and God gives him two strokes punishing him double for all his sins (Isaiah 40:2, Jeremiah 16:18).
“I will bless them that bless thee, and him that curseth thee will I curse.” I know that statement to be true. I have been blessed all of my life — but, when I began to give my entire attention to Israel and to God's call, I received blessings untold, such as I had never experienced before. I see truths that I have never heard fall from any man's lips or seen written in man's book or paper. I say that I have seen these truths and God has certainly verified to me this promise to bless. “Him that curseth thee will I curse.” One who has anti-Semitism in his heart and curses Israel, God will, in His own time, curse.

2. No weapon formed against Israel to prosper

On this same point, one should turn to Isaiah 54:11-17, especially verse 15, but it should be read in its context.
O thou afflicted, tossed with tempest, and not comforted, behold, I will set thy stones in fair colors, and lay thy foundations with sapphires.”
As one sees from the entire text, this passage is a prediction with reference to Jerusalem. Now God says:
Thou afflicted, tossed with tempest, and not comforted, behold, I will set thy stones in fair colors, and lay thy foundations with sapphires.” I believe He means exactly what He says. I believe the reason that He will create and use great sapphires for the millennial Jerusalem is that God's throne will be there.” (Jeremiah 3:16-18)
God says, “I will lay thy foundation with sapphires. And I will make thy pinnacles of rubies, and thy gates of carbuncles, and all thy border of precious stones.” Every statement is to be taken at its face value.
“And all thy children shall be taught of Jehovah ...” That statement means exactly what it says. They will all know God, from the least of them unto the greatest of them.
”... and great shall be the peace of thy children.” The Jews have never had any peace to amount to anything — anything that could be called peace — but they will have peace at the time here foreseen.
“In righteousness shalt thou be established; thou shalt be far from oppression” - that is, when this prophecy is fulfilled - “for thou shall not fear; and from terror, for it shall not come near thee.”
“Behold, they may gather together, but not by me: whosoever shall gather together against thee shall fall because of thee.” This is the crux of the passage. It is not God's holy directive will that they should do anything of that sort. God permits many things in the lives of people, as He does in the case of nations.
“Behold, I have created the smith that bloweth the fire of coals, and bringeth forth a weapon for his work; and I have created the waster to destroy. No weapon that is formed against thee shall prosper; and every tongue that shall rise against thee in judgment thou shall condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of Jehovah, and their righteousness which is of me, saith Jehovah.” This prophecy means exactly what it says and needs no further comment.
“I will bless them that bless thee, and him that curseth thee will I curse.” No weapon, no plan, no scheme that is devised against Israel can prosper. God will see that it will not.

3. Illustrations of God's curse upon Israel's enemies

Has God ever cursed those who have schemed against Israel? Egypt persecuted the Jews when they were there. They were not persecuted all of the 215 years that they were there, but for a great portion of it. The Pharaoh who hated the Jews wanted to exterminate them, did everything that he could against them, and made their lot miserable; but God brought them out, and He sent judgments upon Egypt far beyond any expectation.
I have studied this subject afresh and have seen new light, light regarding the terrific judgments that fell upon Egypt. At the University of Leiden, Holland, is a manuscript obtained in 1828 which gives a firsthand account from the Egyptian standpoint. It has heretofore been misunderstood and misinterpreted as a record of something else, but facts now show that it is a firsthand account of the devastation that wrecked Egypt from end to the other. There were plagues, just as one sees records of plagues in the Book of Exodus and in the early chapters of the Old Testament. God struck Egypt as He had never done before; and, according to this historian, who was an eyewitness, the whole country was devastated from one end to the other. There were earthquakes and other calamities. The seas were churned into a raging fury. All of the things occurred at the time of the deliverance of Israel from Egyptian bondage.
The Assyrians, the crudest nation of antiquity, devastated the land of Israel — first the northern section and then the southern, Jerusalem being left like a little booth in a cucumber patch after the season of fruitage has passed. In fact, Jerusalem was all that was left. Hezekiah was shut up in it; and, according to Sennacherib, the Assyrians captured all of the 46 fortified cities of Israel. Everything else was devastated. But this monster of cruelty went down in ignominy and shame and was blotted out. Assyria vanished from the face of the globe, and all we know about it is what we read on the monuments of that country that have been unearthed and, also, what we see in some histories. “I will curse them that curse thee.”
Then there were also the Babylonians. “Is not this great Babylon which I have built?” Nebuchadnezzar boasted. All there is of Babylon now is the ruins that have been unearthed by the archaeologists. Why were the Babylonians cast down? All because they mistreated the Jew.

II. A Prophetic View of the Present Day

1. Arabic coalition against Israel

Psalm 83 contains a prophecy that I believe is being unfolded before our eyes. It has not yet come to pass, but is in the process of being fulfilled. The first two verses refer to the time of the Tribulation. All scholars of whom I have any knowledge, both of the rationalistic type and of the conservative group, say that there is nothing in all the history of Israel that can be said to be the fulfillment of this prediction. It simply has not been fulfilled. Since it has not, and since God spoke it, we may be certain that it will be fulfilled exactly as foretold. Notice verse 1: “O God keep not thou silence: Hold not thy peace, and be not still, O God.” Why? The reason is found in verse 2: “For, lo, thine enemies make a tumult; And they that hate thee have lifted up the head.”
Israel will utter that prayer, and God will answer it literally. I am inclined to believe that these first two verses refer to a partial fulfillment of such a passage as Psalm 2:1-3, the forthcoming international atheistic, anti-Semitic, anti-Christian, politico-religious convention that will try to count God and His Christ out of His universe.
But the part of the prophecy in Psalm 83 which is now being fulfilled is found in verses 3-8: “They take crafty counsel against thy people. And consult together against thy hidden ones.” Certain ones are going to take crafty counsel against the Jewish people and against God's hidden ones, those of the Jewish people of Palestine that have honest hearts and that will accept the truth when it is presented to them. These hidden ones are like the people mentioned in Acts 18:9,10: “And the Lord said unto Paul in the night by a vision, Be not afraid, but speak and hold not thy peace: for I am with thee, and no man shall set on thee to harm thee: for I have much people in this city.”
Verse 4 of Psalm 83 reveals the purpose of the enemies: “They have said, Come, and let us cut them off from being a nation; That the name of Israel may be no more is remembrance. “In other words, the complete annihilation of Israel, even to the blotting out of the name from remembrance, is the purpose here proposed. Such plots have been made before, and they have been carried out in part. Pharaoh attempted to destroy Israel. So did Nebuchadnezzar, Antiochus Epiphanes, and Titus, Various other tyrants and nations have made similar attempts. Of these, Nazi Germany, under the leadership of the madman Hitler, was most guilty of this heinous crime. But Israel will never be annihilated. During the Tribulation, two out of every three Jews will be destroyed, but a faithful remnant will remain. Through them God will fulfill the promise to Abraham, that in Him all the families of the earth will be blessed.
The third time that I went to Palestine, in 1949, I had not been out of the airplane more than thirty minutes before I heard the report of what the Arabs were saying. They were vociferously asserting that if the United Nations would let them alone, they would mop up with the Jews and would not leave a single Jew in Palestine. They would either slaughter them or drive them into the Mediterranean Sea. I heard that report upon my arrival; and, during the days that I was there, I heard it time and time again. The Arabs were saying then and are saying today the very same thing: “Come, and let us cut them off from being a nation; that the name of Israel may be no more in remembrance.”
In verse 5, the psalmist reveals that the enemies of Israel will make a military alliance and conclude a treaty against God and against His Chosen People: “For they have consulted together with one consent; Against thee do they make a covenant.”
Verses 6-8 list the names of the members of the coalition. Who are they? They are the Arabic nations that are today harassing Israel. In ancient times the term Arab applied to the Bedouin tribes in the northern part of the Arabian peninsula and east of Palestine. Today, the term applies not only to these Semites of Arabia, but also to their descendants, many of whom have mixed with native races in North, East, and Central Africa, as well as in Madagascar, India, the Malay Archipelago, parts of Syria and Persia.
In verse 6, “the tents of Edom,” The Edomites, in Transjordan, south of the Dead Sea, were originally the descendants of Esau, who was also called Edom, or reds because he sold his birthright for red pottage (Genesis 25:30). The Ishmaelites, nomadic tribes of northern Arabia, as name implies, are the descendants of Ismael the son of Abraham and Hagar. The Moabites, on the east coast of the Dead Sea, in Transjordan, are the descendants of Lot (Genesis, chapter 19). The Hagarenes, east of Gilead, in Transjordan, are a nomadic tribe mentioned in I Chronicles 5:10.
In is verse 7, Gebal probably refers to a site on the Mediterranean Sea (Byblos), forty-two miles north of Sidon. The Ammonites,in the centra lpart of Transjordan, like the Moabites, are descendants of Lot (Genesis, chapter 19). The origin of the Amalekites is obscure. They were an ancient nomadic tribe of the Sinai peninsula and were the first to come into contact with the Israelites (Exodus, chapter 17). The Philistines, in the Gaza strip, were of Greek origin. The inhabitants of Tyre were Phoenicians. Today, Phoenicia is called Lebanon. Assyria, in verse 8, is present-day Iraq.
Today, the descendants of the people named in verses 6-8 are all classed as Arabs. If one were to trace in the Bible the history of these people, he would find that most of them were at times hostile to Israel, even as their descendants are today.
The first eight verses of Psalm 83 are a prediction. The remainder of it is a prayer that the Jewish people will pray for God to intervene in their behalf. When they do, He will solve their problem.
In verses 9-12, God is implored to deal with Israel's enemies as He has done on former occasions: “Do thou unto them as unto Midian, as to Sisera, as to Jabin, at the river Kishon; “Who perished at En-dor, Who became as dung for the earth. “Make their nobles like Oreb and Zeeb; Yea, all their princes like Zebah and Zalmunna: Who said. Let us take to ourselves in possession the habitations of God.”
The psalmist does not ask that Israel be permitted to wreak vengeance, for he realizes that vengeance belongs to God (Deuteronomy 32:35-43). When he uttered his prophetic prayer, he not only showed his awareness that vengeance belongs to God, but also pointed out the besetting sin of the enemies of Israel. The enemies say: “Let us take to ourselves in possession the habitations of God.” Is this not exactly what the enemies of Israel are saying today?
“But to whom does the Holy Land belong? In Leviticus 25:23, we find this declaration; “And the land shall not be sold in perpetuity; for the land is mine: for ye are strangers and sojourners with me.” In Isaiah 8:8, God claims the land for His Son, referring to it as “thy land, O Immanuel.” In Deuteronomy 11:12, one learns that God cares for this land in a peculiar manner, for His eyes “are always upon it, from the beginning of the year even unto the end of the year.”
The land belongs to God in a special way, and He has entrusted it to Israel, because He intends to use His Chosen People in a special way. “... and in thee shall all the families of the earth be blessed” (Genesis 12:3). Yet the above named enemies of Israel did seize the land divide it. [Editor Note: Since the six-day war of 1967 all on the west side of Jordan has been united under Israel, except the temple area.]
The remainder of the prayer in Psalm 83 contains two petitions. The first is in verses 13-16:
O my God, make them like the whirling dust; As stubble before the wind. As the fire that burneth the forest, And as the flame that setteth the mountains on fire, So pursue them with thy tempest, And terrify them with thy storm — Fill their faces with confusion, That they may seek thy name, O Jehovah.”
The last clause of this petition shows that Asaph is not uttering a prayer of vengeance. He wants the enemies overthrown for the most commendable reason possible — that they may be brought to a saving knowledge of God.
The second petition, verses 17 and 18, is prompted by the same motive. “Let them be put to shame and dismayed for ever; Yea, let them be confounded and perish “That they may know that thou alone, whose name is Jehovah, Art the most High over all the earth.”
In the preceding installments we Have seen God's attitude toward anti-Semites. His promise is to assuage the effect of those weapons arrayed against her. Illustrations from history have been noted. We now turn to passages of Scripture related to latter day assaults by Israel's enemies. Though allowed to go through the furnace of affliction, her ultimate salvation comes when Christ Jesus “rend the heavens — stand upon the Mt, of Olives — lift the curse from the earth — take the world situation in hand — solve the Jewish problem.”

2. Israel in the grip of the Nations

A passage of similar import as Psalm 83 is found in Ezekiel 36:1-8. Let us first observe verse 8: “But ye, 0 mountains of Israel, ye shall shoot forth your branches, and yield your fruit to my people Israel ...” Why? “For they are at hand to come.” That statement gives the perspective from which one must view the passage. In this oracle, Ezekiel says to the mountains and valleys of Israel: “You are going to bud, produce, and bring forth your full increase.” The reason is that God's People “are at hand to come.” They are on the verge of coming in to be settled there permanently. This prophecy, therefore, relates to what is going on at the present moment and to what will yet develop in the near future.
Now let us take note of the entire passage: “And thou, son of man, prophecy unto the mountains of Israel, and say, Ye mountains of Israel hear the word of Jehovah.” This message is from God; you are to listen, ye mountains of Israel. “Thus saith the Lord Jehovah: Because the enemy hath said against you, Aha! And, The ancient high places are ours in possession ...” The enemies are gloating over their having the high places of the land of Israel in possession. So God commands Ezekiel: “... therefore prophesy, and say, Thus saith the Lord Jehovah: Because, even because, they have made you desolate, swallowed you up on every side ...” One should pause here to see what has occurred. Back in 1927, Transjordan, about half of the land that God gave to the Jew, was cut off and it became the possession of the Arabs. In 1948, when the British gave up the mandate and withdrew from Palestine, the Arabs of Transjordan captured practically all of the mountainous part of Israel.
“ ... Because, even because they have made you desolate, and swallowed you up on every side, that ye might be a possession unto the residue of the nations,” — Here probably is a reference to the United Nations. They are having a finger in the pie, but God pity the world when they meddle in Jewish politics. “... and ye are taken up in the lips of talkers, and the evil report of the people ...” The enemies are generally talking about the Jews and the Jewish problem, poking fun at them, and ridiculing them.
“... Therefore, ye mountains of Israel, hear the word of the Lord Jehovah: Thus saith the Lord Jehovah to the mountains and to the hills, to the watercourses and to the valleys, to the desolate wastes and to the cities that are forsaken, which are become a prey and derision to the residue of the nations that are round about ...” In verse 3, “the residue of the nations” refers to all the rest of the nations, but in verse 4 the term is, limited to the nations round-about Israel, the Arabic nations adjoining Palestine.
“... Therefore thus saith the Lord Jehovah: Surely in the fire of my jealousy have I spoken against the residue of the nations ...” Here, I am inclined to believe the expression “the residue of the nations” refers to the United Nations. God points them out, especially Edom — “and against all Edom, that have appointed my land unto themselves for a possession with the joy of all their heart, with despite of soul, to cast it out for a prey.” The Edomites were cousins of the Israelites, yet were their inveterate enemies. They have done everything they can against the Jews.
“Therefore prophesy concerning the land of Israel, and say unto the mountains and to the hills, to the watercourses and to the valleys. Thus saith the Lord Jehovah: Behold, I have spoken in my jealousy and in my wrath, because ye have borne the shame of the nations: thus saith the Lord Jehovah: I have sworn, saying, Surely the nations that are round about you, they shall bear their shame.” God will requite Israel.
“But ye, O mountains of Israel, ye shall shoot forth your branches, and yield your fruit to my people Israel; for they are at hand to come.” They are “at hand to come” now.
Thus Psalm 83 and Ezekiel 36:1-8 deal with the Jewish situation today — the situation of Palestine surrounded by enemies. But the worst is yet to come.

III. Prophetic View of the Situation in Israel in the Near Future

1. Israel Scattered among the Nations

The situation that will prevail in Israel in the near future is also revealed in the Scriptures. Let us notice Joel 3:1-8. “For, behold, in those days, and in that time,” the time referred to in the final paragraph of chapter 2, the Tribulation Period, “I will gather all nations” — the United Nations again — “and will bring them down into the valley of Jehoshaphat” — in the valley of judgment, the valley of the Great Tribulation, — and I will execute judgment upon them there.” A mother or father may have several children; but Johnny, let us say, does something wrong. Does Mary get the whipping? According to the principles of right and justice, the parent punishes the guilty one. The same principle applies here. God is speaking here about the nations of the end time when He is gathering Israel back into the homeland. He says that he will enter into Judgment with them “for my people, and for my heritage Israel, whom they have scattered among the nations: and they have parted my land, and have cast lots for my people, and have given a boy for a harlot, and sold a girl for wine, that they may drink.”
Since God punishes only the guilty, and since He is here talking about the nations of the end time, one can be sure that the United Nations will literally kick the Jews out of Palestine — and everything looks in that direction now. They will scatter the Jews among the nations, part their land, and sell a Jewish boy for a harlot and a Jewish girl for a drink of wine.
In Micah 4:11-13, one learns that these enemy nations will gather against Israel unaware that God has brought them there.
And how many nations are assembled against thee, that say, Let her be defiled, and let our eye see our desire upon Zion. But they know not the thoughts of Jehovah, neither understand the thoughts of Jehovah, neither understand they his counsel; for he hath gathered them as the sheaves to the threshing-floor.”
Similarly In Zephaniah 3:8 one reads:
Therefore wait ye for me, saith Jehovah, the day that I rise up to the prey; for my determination is to gather the nations, that I may assemble the kingdoms, to pour upon them mine indignation, even all my fierce anger; for all the earth shall be devoured with the fire of my jeaiousy.”

2. Israel Persecuted in the Land

Having seen the situation of Israel as set forth in Psalm 83 and Ezekiel 36:1-8, let us look at Zechariah 12:1-3, upon which this theme is based: “The burden of the word of Jehovah concerning Israel. Thus saith Jehovah, who stretcheth forth the heavens, and layeth the foundation of the earth, that formeth the spirit of man within him: Behold, I will make Jerusalem a cup of reeling unto all the peoples round about,” — notice that expression “the peoples 'round about,” those Arabic nations that are 'round about — “and upon Judah also shall it be in the siege against Jerusalem. And it shall come to pass in that day, that I will make Jerusalem a burdensome stone for all the peoples: all that burden themselves with it shall be sore wounded; and all the nations of the earth shall be gathered together against it.”
In verse 2 the word “peoples” is modified by the term “round about,” referring to the Arabic nations around Israel; but in verse 3 God has, as it were, lifted His eyes and is looking over the whole world at “all the peoples,” “all the nations of the earth.” He will make Jerusalem a burdensome stone that will wound the hands of all the nations.
David Baron, one of the greatest commentators on the Old Testament, said, “Here is a picture of a big rock. Men are putting their hands underneath it to lift it up; and lo and behold, they cannot lift it up, but it falls on them and crushes their hands.” That is the picture which God presents here. All nations, including the United States, my home land, which I love, will, I fear, burden themselves with Jerusalem and with Jewish politics; and they will suffer the judgments of God because of meddling in Jewish affairs. He will make Jerusalem as a rock which will crush their hands.

IV. Final Stroke of Judgment against Israel's Enemies

For the final act of this drama, let us turn to Isaiah17:12-14. "Ah, the uproar of many peoples, that roar like the roaring of the seas; and the rushing of nations, that rush like the rushing of mighty waters! The nations shall rush like the rushing of many waters...” All nations are against Jerusalem like a storm, as related passages of the Scriptures reveal they will do during the Tribulation. The prophet Isaiah sees this wave of anti-Semitism coming against the Jews. But notice now, — “... but he shall rebuke them, and they shall flee far off, and shall be chased as the chaff of the mountains before the wind, and like the whirling dust before the storm. At eventide, behold terror; and before the morning they are not. This is the portion of them that despoil us, and the lot of them that rob us.” Something has occurred. All the nations are rushing like demons against Israel. The picture could not be darker at evening, but overnight everything changes. “At eventide, behold, terror; and before the morning they are not.” The Jews will have at that time been given the facts with reference to the Lord Jesus Christ and His being the Jewish Messiah. They will consider these facts and see the mistake that their ancestors made more than 1900 years ago; repudiate the national sin; confess it before God and plead for Divine mercy and Messiah's return. They will be in prayer, fasting and repenting, for two full days, according to Hosea. On the third day they will be revived — the Spirit of God will come. Then Christ will rend the heavens and He will stand in that day upon the Mount of Olives. He will lift the curse from the earth, take the world situation in hand, and solve the Jewish problem.
The United Nations is putting pressure upon the Jews. The problems are very serious. America had better watch out. England had better watch out. They are tampering with explosives: “I will curse them that curse thee.” Those who burden themselves by making it their business to meddle in Jewish politics, will have God's judgment upon them. Jerusalem will become a burdensome stone that will crush their hands.
Let us pray God to overrule and direct the affairs of nations and to keep the saints fit to work in His cause proclaiming the Gospel of Jesus Christ until He comes.



Posted on 7/17/2014 by

In a stunning rebuke of President Obama’s tepid calls for Israel to show “restraint” in response to daily rocket fire on Israeli civilian targets by Hamas terror redoubts in Gaza, Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper, long considered Israel’s best friend and strongest defender, all but condemned President Obama by name for what he regards as Washington’s irresolute support for Israel during its time of grave crisis.

Screen Shot 2014-07-17 at 10.59.58 AM
In perhaps his most strongly worded statement to date, Prime Minister Harper proclaimed that self defense is “not merely an Israeli right” to be exercised only in the abstract, but an “Israeli obligation” that must be defended by all Western nations. 
“Failure by the international community to condemn these reprehensible actions will encourage these terrorists to continue their appalling actions,’’ Harper said in a rare Sunday statement. “Canada calls on its allies and partners to recognize that these terrorist acts [by Hamas] are unacceptable and that solidarity with Israel is the best way of stopping the conflict.”
Forget about the U.S.-Israel relationship being the bulwark of Israeli security, say some. Israel’s best friend and staunchest defender is no longer found in Washington, but rather in Ottawa.
Ending the war does not require Israeli “restraint,” implies Harper. It demands the world declare that sole responsibility for the terror of violence belongs with the terrorists. It is Hamas, claims Harper, that is entirely responsible for the current Israel-Hamas war. “It is evident,” Harper asserts, “that Hamas is deliberately using human shields to further terror in the region,’’ and he takes several swipes at the United Nations and the “international community” for calling for Israeli restraint in the face of escalating rocket fire aimed at murdering and maiming Israeli civilians.
“Canada mourns the death and suffering of innocent civilians in Gaza. Responsibility rests solely with Hamas and its allies, who launched and continue to feed this crisis,’’ he said.
Harper rejects outright calls coming from both the White House and the UN that Israel agree to a negotiated ceasefire with Hamas. Not only should Israel not agree to a ceasefire, says Harper, Israel should continue her offensive until the Iranian-backed terror group is “massively degraded,” if not eliminated entirely. “Indiscriminate rocket attacks from Gaza on Israel are terrorist acts, for which there is no justification.”
Next to Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu himself, Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper has clearly emerged as Israel’s strongest and most unapologetic defender.
Speaking for Prime Minister Harper and Canada’s government, Foreign Minister Baird vocalizes things that Israel supporters no longer even fantasize about hearing from Washington, such as, “There is no moral equivalency between a democratic state and a terrorist organization” and  that “Hamas militants hiding within its civilian population is abominable.”

Obama’s Presidency Could Be In Jeopardy When He Sees How Many Americans Don’t Believe He’s A Citizen

Of all the scandals that have rocked this administration, perhaps none has resulted in as much discussion and speculation as the controversy regarding Barack Obama’s birth certificate.
As a recent Rasmussen poll indicates, a wide segment of the American population continues to express doubt regarding his citizenship and eligibility to hold the office of president.
Nearly a quarter of all those polled revealed that they agree with the assertion that Obama is not an American citizen. In total, four in 10 either say they are certain he is not or have some doubt.
As one might assume, political affiliation plays a part in how respondents answered the question. Among Republicans, more than 40 percent say they are sure he is not a U.S. citizen.
More than 20 percent of independents agreed, however, as did more than 10 percent of Democrats.
Republicans and independents responded similarly in expressing uncertainty about his citizenship, with more than 20 percent stating they are not sure whether he is an American or not. Just seven percent of Democrats are unsure.
Describing the citizenship debate as a conspiracy theory, Rasmussen included the question in a wide-ranging survey that touched on a number of other contested opinions.
Regarding another hypothesis about an American president, a full 32 percent of Americans reportedly believe that John F. Kennedy’s assassination was coordinated by more than just the one shooter historically blamed for his death. Less than half believe Lee Harvey Oswald acted alone.
While 57 percent of respondents reject the theory that the U.S. government knew about the 9/11 terrorist attacks ahead of time, 24 percent believe federal officials were aware of the threats and failed to prevent them.
Two in 10 respondents believe the crash reported near Roswell, N.M. in 1947 involved an alien spacecraft. Only 47 percent are willing to categorically state that the theory is false.
Of all the conspiracies included in Rasmussen’s poll, the one believed by the fewest respondents involved Paul McCartney’s death in 1966 and his subsequent replacement in The Beatles. More than eight in 10 Americans think that theory is unfounded.

Excerpted from TheJC.com: French ministers have condemned the recent series of antisemitic outbursts in the country, which came to a head on Sunday night when more than 400 people stormed a largely Jewish suburb and attacked a synagogue and kosher supermarket.
The demonstration took place in Sarcelles, north of Paris, when protesters stormed the suburb armed with rocks and petrol bombs and shouting “Death to Jews” and “Slit Jews’ throats”. Many had been encouraged to take part by widely circulated posters saying “Palestine will live” and “Come equipped with hammers and fire extinguishers for a raid on the Jewish district”.
This was despite a government order the previous week banning such protests, following attacks on two synagogues in the capital.
France’s Prime Minister Manuel Valls said on Monday: “What happened in Sarcelles was intolerable. Attacking a synagogue and a kosher grocery is quite simply antisemitic and racist.” Keep Reading

Border Patrol On Illegal Alien Invasion: ‘This Is The Dream Of Every Terrorist In The World’

Border Patrol On Illegal Alien Invasion: ‘This Is The Dream Of Every Terrorist In The World’

(by Todd Starnes, FOX News) -- The Transportation Security Administration is strongly denying accusations that it has been allowing illegal immigrants to board American jetliners without proper identification.
The National Border Patrol Council, a union representing thousands of Border Patrol agents, accused the TSA of letting illegals board airplanes with a “Notice to Appear” document instead of a passport or official government identification card.
Union leaders said illegals were allowed to board jetliners without proper identification at airports in El Paso and Laredo, Texas. The story was first reported by Breitbart News.
“This is the dream of every terrorist in the world,” Shawn Moran, vice president of the union, told me. “There is no way of knowing who is on board the jetliners.”
Whenever illegal immigrants are processed, Moran said, they are released with a “Notice to Appear” document. He said that’s the document they are using to fly commercially in the United States.
“This is a document that could easily be forged,” Moran told me. “It is simply a computer printout with a name on it.”
He said border agents in Laredo asked the TSA why they would allow illegals to board jetliners with the “Notice to Appear” document.
“They said, ‘You guys issued it to them so we’re accepting it,’” Moran told me. “It doesn’t make sense.”
Judicial Watch, a conservative legal watchdog group, confirmed through an unnamed high-level source within the Department of Homeland Security that illegals were allowed to board jetliners in El Paso without identification.

Politico's Chief Political Columnist: Rick Perry Sends National Guard to Shoot Border Children

Rick Perry sending 1,000 National Guard troops to border to shoot small children. Could make good headlines -- in Russia. --
In a  Monday tweet, Roger Simon, a star columnist at the left-wing Politico, accused Texas Governor Rick Perry of sending "1,000 National Guard troops to border to shoot small children."
Monday, due to inaction on the part of the Obama Administration, Governor Perry announced that he no choice but to activate 1000 National Guard troops. The troops will focus on protecting Texas citizens from the drug smugglers and gang members using the border chaos to their advantage.

Pressure for Cease-Fire Builds on Hamas

Diplomats stepped up pressure on Hamas to accept a cease-fire in Gaza and end a conflict that has killed more than 600 people, as global airlines suspended flights to Tel Aviv because of rocket fire.
U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry, who’s in Cairo to promote the Egyptian plan for a truce, said Hamas has “a fundamental choice to make.” Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas said late yesterday that Hamas agreed to a proposed cease-fire to be followed by five days of talks, even though it rejected the Egyptian initiative last week while Israel accepted it. There was no immediate response from Hamas to the Palestinian Authority leader’s remarks.
Israel sent troops into Gaza last week and it has been bombarding it for more than two weeks, saying it aims to stop a barrage of rockets fired by militants from the territory. U.S. aviation authorities yesterday ordered the cancellation of flights to Tel Aviv because of the threat from missiles, one of which landed near the city’s airport, and European carriers including Lufthansa also called off flights.
Kerry and other diplomats are trying to end the third major round of violence between Israel’s military and Gaza militants in five years. Previous accords haven’t resolved fundamental issues including the arsenals that the militants have amassed and Israel’s blockade on Gaza. The embargo, along with Egypt’s closing of its border with the territory, has battered Gaza’s economy and confined 1.8 million Palestinians to a 140-square-mile (363-square-kilometer) patch of land.

Hamas Demands

Shortly before Kerry arrived in Cairo, Hamas political leader Ismail Haniyeh said his group wouldn’t back down without pledges the Israeli blockade will be lifted. He also demanded that hundreds of Palestinians arrested in Israel’s recent sweep of the West Bank be released.
The conflict in Gaza escalated after the breakdown of U.S.- brokered peace talks between Israel and the Palestinian Authority in April. Abbas responded to that by reaching an accord with Hamas for a unity government to end their seven-year rift, enraging Israel. The kidnap and murder of three Israeli teenagers, and the suspected revenge killing of a Palestinian youth, added to the tensions.
Abbas said late yesterday in a televised speech that Hamas and its patron Qatar agreed with Egypt on the cease-fire plan. He pledged to continue to work together with Hamas in running the joint government for Gaza and the West Bank and to hold Israel responsible for the hundreds of dead.

Abbas Remarks

Palestinians are “sticking to unity and ending division,” Abbas said, adding that they “will chase the war criminals who committed crimes against our people.”
Israel occupied Gaza for almost 40 years before withdrawing in 2005. It says trade restrictions remain in place to prevent materials that can be used to attack Israel from reaching the militants, pointing to the concrete-lined tunnels that have been built to enable raids into Israel.
Kerry said yesterday that talks will continue in the coming days “to see if we can find a way forward, a way that ends the violence and then addresses the underlying causes.”
About two-thirds of the Palestinians killed over the past two weeks are civilians, including 154 children, Gaza health official Ashraf al-Qedra said. Israel says Hamas uses civilians, including children, as human shields. The number of Gazans seeking shelter from the fighting with the UN Relief and Works Agency has exceeded 100,000, the agency said in an e-mailed statement.

Soldiers Killed

At least 27 Israeli soldiers have been killed since ground troops entered Gaza last week, the military said, more than double the toll during Israel’s last incursion in 2009. Two Israeli civilians have been killed by rockets since early July.
Israel said yesterday that an infantryman is missing in Gaza, bearing the same name as a soldier Hamas militants say they’re holding. Hamas hasn’t said whether the soldier is dead or alive. Israel has in the past released Palestinian prisoners in return for the freeing of soldiers seized by militant groups.
Israeli markets have been largely unaffected by the violence. The benchmark stock index extended gains yesterday, adding 0.4 percent, and the shekel is little changed since the conflict escalated on July 8.

Economic Risk

The halting of flights to Tel Aviv, Israel’s commercial hub, shows the risk of economic damage from the conflict, as militants in Gaza extend the range of their rocket fire.
Israel’s Aviation Authority said the last such cancellations in the city were during Iraq’s Scud missile bombardment in the 1991 Gulf War. Transport Minister Israel Katz said Ben Gurion airport remains safe.
“Hamas hasn’t had a lot of success killing people with its rockets so it’s not a surprise that they’re going after economic targets such as the airport,” said Rafi Gozlan, chief economist at Israel Brokerage & Investments - IBI Ltd. “Since our domestic carriers are flying, this is still manageable, but it’s certainly going to have an impact on the third quarter.”
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu asked Kerry to help restore flights, according to a text message from his office, after the U.S. Federal Aviation Administration’s decision to stop them. Ben Rhodes, the U.S. deputy national security adviser, told CNN television that “the Israelis have raised concerns,” adding that the White House is “not going to overrule the FAA” on a flight security matter.
Kerry discussed the FAA’s action with Netanyahu yesterday, said Jen Psaki, a U.S. State Department spokeswoman, in a statement. The “only consideration” in stopping flights was “the safety and security of our citizens,” she said.
Mike Bloomberg, the former mayor of New York and majority shareholder of Bloomberg LP, which owns Bloomberg News, said on Twitter that he plans to fly to Tel Aviv on Israel’s El Al Airlines to demonstrate that it is safe to fly to the nation.

Diplomat: UN Gave Hamas Rockets to the Palestinian Government

Diplomat: UN Gave Hamas Rockets to the Palestinian Government

Dispute over who the missiles were given back to

United Nations officials handed Hamas missiles found last week in a U.N.-run school in Gaza to the Palestinian government, according to a Western diplomat familiar with the case who spoke to the Washington Free Beacon.
At least 20 rockets were discovered last week in a Gaza school run by the U.N. Relief and Works Agency (UNRWA), which operates several schools in Gaza and elsewhere.
Israeli officials claimed on Sunday that the weapons were given back to Hamas, but Western sources familiar with the case say that they were turned over to “local authorities” working under the Palestinian unity government.
It remains unclear exactly where the rockets are now and who has possession of them.
Hamas backs the unity government, but its exact role in the government has become less clear since recent hostilities broke out between the terror group and Israel. The dispute over where the weapons went is a sign of continued uncertainty over the government’s status in the Gaza Strip, where local police are known to be Hamas affiliates.
“There is absolutely no evidence that UNRWA handed the rockets over to Hamas,” a Western diplomat working on the issue told the Free Beacon. “The authorities who came and collected the weapons are under the direct authority of the government of national consensus which Hamas has left and which many in Hamas are openly hostile to.”
A UNRWA official also maintained that the rockets were handed over to “local authorities” working for the official Palestinian government.
“According to longstanding U.N. practice in U.N. humanitarian operations worldwide, incidents involving unexploded ordnance that could endanger beneficiaries and staff are referred to the local authorities,” UNRWA spokesman Chris Gunness told the Free Beacon in a statement.
UNRWA has come under fire repeatedly by the Israelis, who claim the agency has an anti-Israel bias and encourages hostility against the Jewish state. Israel’s U.N. ambassador demanded last week that Gunness specifically be removed from his post for an “ongoing pattern of anti-Israel bias.”
Gunness maintained that UNRWA “took all necessary measures” to ensure the missiles were properly removed from the school.
“Immediately after the discovery of the rockets, UNRWA proactively informed the relevant parties and successfully took all necessary measures for the removal of the objects in order to preserve the safety and security of the school,” Gunness said. “Local authorities fall under the government of national consensus in Ramallah. They pledged to pass a message to all parties not to violate UNRWA neutrality.”
However, local authorities in the Gaza Strip, including the police, are under the control of Hamas. UNRWA did not respond to further Free Beacon questions attempting to discern the exact authorities or government branch the weapons were handed over to.
Israeli officials believe that UNRWA called local police to pick up the weapons. These police in the Gaza Strip are known to be loyal to and operated by Hamas.
“There is no central technocratic authority in the Gaza Strip. Hamas is in complete control, which is part of the problem and why the Israelis went in,” said Jonathan Schanzer, vice president of research at the Foundation for Defense of Democracies.
UNRWA now says that it has launched an investigation to determine exactly how Hamas missiles came to be stashed in one of its schools.
A “Board of Inquiry” has been established to examine “the circumstances surrounding the incident,” according to Gunness.
The board will collect evidence and conduct interviews with “material witnesses.” This information will then be used in an investigation that will commence when the conflict between Israel and Hamas ends.
UNRWA claims that this is the first time missiles of any sort have been discovered in one of its facilities. The Israeli military has claimed in past conflicts that Hamas uses the U.N. schools as a base to fire rockets.
“UNRWA strongly condemns the group or groups responsible for placing the weapons in one of its installations,” Gunness said. “This is a flagrant violation of the inviolability of UNRWA premises under international law. This incident, which is the first of its kind in Gaza, endangered civilians including staff and put at risk UNRWA’s vital mission to assist and protect Palestine refugees in Gaza.”
According to a report released by the Meir Amit Intelligence and Terrorism Information Center, the incident is not the first of its kind.
“This case of placing rockets in an UNRWA school was not the first incident of its kind in Gaza, because Hamas and the other terrorist organizations routinely and systematically use educational installations (many of which belong to UNRWA) in the Gaza Strip for military-terrorist purposes,” the report says. “By doing so they endanger the children and teaching staff, and grossly violate the international laws governing war.”

Banker Deaths Climb to 15: Goldman Sachs Managing Director Found Dead

Banker Deaths Climb to 15: Goldman Sachs Managing Director Found Dead

Another high level banker has been found dead.
Nicholas Valtz, a 39-year old managing director at Goldman Sachs Group Inc. in New York, was found dead Sunday afternoon in Napeague Harbor where he had reportedly gone earlier that day to kiteboard. Valtz’ body was found still tied to his kite.
Kiteboarding, also called kitesurfing, combines elements of windsurfing and paragliding which can garner speeds of up to 40 mph. His brother told Bloomberg that Valtz was still new to the sport.
“As a cross-asset sales executive, he helped manage orders for trading clients and pitch them products and ideas among different types of securities. His wife, Sashi Valtz, also works at Goldman Sachs as head of global third-party research sales, according to her LinkedIn profile,” Bloomberg reported.
While the majority of articles have made it clear the police are still investigating this incident and the cause of death is yet unknown, the Daily Mail already ran with the headline, “Goldman Sachs managing director, 39, found dead after kiteboarding accident“.
The incident marks the 15th reported death of a senior banking and finance executive in recent months as just a few weeks ago, JP Morgan Executive Director Julian Knott shot his wife Alita to death with a shotgun before turning the weapon on himself.
Zero Hedge posted the recap of recent banker deaths below after a 52-year-old female banker at France’s Bred-Banque-Populaire jumped from the 14th floor of the bank’s Paris headquarters back in April:
*Note: The count is not actually 16, as #2 on the list Karl Slym was not actually a banker but the managing director of a major car company.
1 – William Broeksmit, 58-year-old former senior executive at Deutsche Bank AG, was found dead in his home after an apparent suicide in South Kensington in central London, on January 26th.
*2 – Karl Slym, 51 year old Tata Motors managing director Karl Slym, was found dead on the fourth floor of the Shangri-La hotel in Bangkok on January 27th.
3 – Gabriel Magee, a 39-year-old JP Morgan employee, died after falling from the roof of the JP Morgan European headquarters in London on January 27th.

6 – Tim Dickenson, a U.K.-based communications director at Swiss Re AG, also died last month, however the circumstances surrounding his death are still unknown.
7 – Ryan Henry Crane, a 37-year-old executive at JP Morgan died in an alleged suicide just a few weeks ago. No details have been released about his death aside from this small obituary announcement at the Stamford Daily Voice.
8 – Li Junjie, 33-year-old banker in Hong Kong jumped from the JP Morgan HQ there.
9 – James Stuart Jr, Former National Bank of Commerce CEO, was found dead in Scottsdale, Arizona, the morning of Feb. 19. A family spokesman did not say what caused the death.

In other news, billionaire Jeremy Grantham, co-founder and chief investment strategist of a Boston-based firm with $117 billion in assets under management, says he is positive another horrific stock market crash is coming and will be “unlike any other” the modern world has seen…
Newsmax Money News reported yesterday:
“We have no right to be surprised by a severe and imminent stock market crash,” explains Mark Spitznagel, a hedge fund manager who is notorious for his hugely profitable billion-dollar bet on the 2008 crisis. “In fact, we must absolutely expect it.”
Billion-dollar investor Warren Buffett is rumored to be preparing for a crash as well. The “Warren Buffett Indicator,” also known as the “Total-Market-Cap to GDP Ratio,” is breaching sell-alert status and a collapse may happen at any moment.

Did Obama’s Biggest Nightmare Just Become Reality?

Did Obama’s Biggest Nightmare Just Become Reality?

This movement could end up being bigger than the Tea Party.

Under Obama’s Dream Act, he declared that he wouldn’t deport underage illegal immigrants already living in the United States.
Of course, the illegal immigrants in the United States were elated by the news. Many of them phoned home requesting for friends and family to join them.
Well, hundreds of thousands answered the call and are now swarming across the border. And the surge has completely overwhelmed America’s child welfare and foster care system.
In response, Obama – believing he would face less opposition by shipping these immigrants to big cities – turned nearly the entire country into pseudo border states.
So what was once a problem in Arizona and Texas is now also a problem in Illinois, California, and New York.
Indeed, Obama’s “dream” has quickly become a nightmare. And his strongest supporters are now turning their backs on him.
Lies, Lies, Lies
The political left has claimed that these children are leaving Central America because of violence.
Don’t believe it…
A recent government intelligence assessment compiled via interviews with detained illegals concludes that 95% “cited the primary reason for migrating to the United States was the perception of U.S. immigration laws granting free passes or ‘permisos’ to UAC (unaccompanied children).”
By comparison, the violence affecting black children in America’s inner cities is far worse than anything being faced by these children from Central America.
On such merits, black leaders across the country are actually denouncing Obama as a result of the ongoing immigration crisis. They believe that if Obama can find money to spend on the child immigration crisis, he should also be able to find more room in the budget for helping at-risk children who are here legally.
Speaking from Chicago, Reverend Jesse Jackson said, “If we can find $4 billion for those children – and we should – we can find $2 billion for Chicago. There are more children involved, and more have been killed, and more have been shot.”
Just over the Fourth of July weekend, nine people were killed – and 60 injured – in the ongoing eruption of violence in Chicago.
And it’s not just the black community that’s feeling shunned. A coalition of homeless activists in Los Angeles are also upset – feeling neglected as city officials rush to find housing for illegal immigrants.
Before we start taking in “refugees” from other countries, maybe we should start focusing on the refugees in our own backyard.
Free Immigration and a Welfare State?
Many on the left continue to quote the words inscribed on the Statue of Liberty, “Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to breathe free…”
The problem with open borders today is that the system has dramatically changed.
In 1886, when the Statue of Liberty was gifted to the United States, we had no welfare system. Immigrants knew they had to work to make it in America, and they certainly did!
Today, we have a highly developed welfare system that gives these children money we cannot afford.
As America’s brilliant economist, Milton Friedman, once postulated: “It’s just obvious you can’t have free immigration and a welfare state.” The immigrants coming today are an immediate cash drain on an already-overtaxed welfare system – shoving American children out of the way to make more room for them.

Protests in Murrieta, California last week may have received limited mainstream news coverage, but more are cropping up around the country. Last week, protests were held in Arizona, Illinois, Connecticut, Maryland, New York, Michigan, and Pennsylvania. And 250 more protests were scheduled for this past weekend.
This movement could end up being bigger than the Tea Party. Mostly because the Tea Party didn’t cross party lines–yet this protest is often led by left-wing activists.
So, for once, it’s not just the right wing that’s fed up… Even Obama’s own have had enough of his antics.

HOW THE FIX WAS IN: Barack Obama’s Manufactured Border Crisis

The Mainstream Media has done very little in connecting the dots on the years in the making manufactured border crisis, so this blog will now attempt to do so.  Please share far and wide if you agree.  Together, we must work to inform others, and raise the collective awareness of a nation too long asleep at the wheel…

The photo above is of Cecilia Munoz, Barack Obama’s Domestic Policy Director, appointed to that position in January of 2012.  Director Munoz’s “expertise” has long been civil rights and proposed comprehensive immigration reform. Her family originates from Bolivia.

2012 is the very year Barack Obama declared amnesty to under 18 illegals inside of the United States.  His administration indicated that if children were able to get into the United States, they would not be forced to return to their home country.  It is no accident the appointment of an open borders advocate as his Domestic Policy Director and the president’s stunning refusal to enforce U.S. immigration laws, occurred within weeks of one another.

DO NOT overlook the influence of this woman and her role in the current manufactured border crisis.  Prior to her position as head of White House Domestic Policy (and note how, among all of the important domestic policy issues, such as the economy, etc., Barack Obama placed an immigration reform advocate into that position) Munoz worked in the Obama White House as Director of Intergovernmental Affairs, a position that in turn, answered directly to…Valerie Jarrett.

Above:  Munoz, (center) was a direct protege within the Obama White House of Valerie Jarrett (right) 

Prior to her time working inside the White House, Cecilia Munoz was senior vice president of the National Council of La Raza, a militant open borders advocacy group whose motto includes the following:
For The Race everything. Outside The Race, nothing.

La Raza believes the “Chicano” race to be a master race of peoples, language far more at home with the beliefs of Hitler’s Nazi Germany than 2012 America.  And yet, that is who Barack Obama put in place to head “Domestic Policy” for the United States.

Yeah, let that one sink in.

Now check out this excerpt from Human Events on La Raza, published in 2006, (during Munoz’s tenure with La Raza) and see how the goals of this militant group have clearly been accelerated  during the Obama administration:
MEChA and the La Raza movement teach that Colorado, California, Arizona, Texas, Utah, New Mexico, Oregon and parts of Washington State make up an area known as “Aztlan” — a fictional ancestral homeland of the Aztecs before Europeans arrived in North America.
 As such, it belongs to the followers of MEChA. These are all areas America should surrender to “La Raza” once enough immigrants, legal or illegal, enter to claim a majority, as in Los Angeles. The current borders of the United States will simply be extinguished.
 This plan is what is referred to as the “Reconquista” or reconquest, of the Western U.S.
But it won’t end with territorial occupation and secession. The final plan for the La Raza movement includes the ethnic cleansing of Americans of European, African, and Asian descent out of “Aztlan.”

An ETHNIC CLEANSING advocate is who was appointed to head the Obama White House’s Domestic Policy Counsel.

So Cecilia Munoz is appointed early in 2012, the president issues a declaration that illegal youth will not be deported, and from then on, reports begin to be generated from various sources regarding thousands of children making the journey to, and then into, the United States.

Customs and Border Protection and Immigration and Customs Enforcement warned the Obama administration of a significant surge of migrant children at the border as early as 2012 - IGNORED.

In 2012, Texas Gov. Rick Perry wrote a letter telling the administration that the number of unaccompanied Central American youth entering the country illegally was up 90 percent from the previous year - IGNORED.

The Washington Post indicated on Saturday a team of experts from the University of Texas at El Paso (UTEP) submitted a 41-page report to the White House in August of 2013.  This report detailed the mass migration of over 24,000 illegal children being processed at Texas border stations already in the first half of 2013.  -IGNORED.

The Post report also stated the Obama White House was notified by government representatives from Mexico, Guatemala, and Honduras in 2012 of a “worrisome” rise in unaccompanied minors in April of that year. - IGNORED.

The Obama administration is clearly intent on tearing down the borders of the United States, one Hispanic child-pawn at a time…
