We greet you in the precious Name of our Lord Jesus Christ and extend an especial welcome to our new subscribers.
Regrettably difficulties in delivering the Newsletter to subscribers have disappointed serious students as hyperlinks have been null making it necessary to visit the Newsletters on-line. Please join us in prayer that this problem will be overcome when we find a suitable Web Host.

Today's news articles focus upon the subject of our main article, "Three Unclean Spirits," in which we begin to scripturally identify the situation in the Ukraine and Russia in God's Holy Bible. Clearly the City of London and those Lord James Balfour deemed 'g_d's chosen people,' plan to send us colonials into yet another unnecessary and iniquitous war. Their motto, "By Deception Thou shalt do War," will have us fighting on the wrong side once again to kill and steal global hegemony promised by their lewd holy book, the Babylonian Talmud. But Jesus Christ, the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob said "the meek shall inherit the earth; and shall delight themselves in the abundance of peace" (Psalm 37:11).

Our political and religious leaders are following "the g_d of forces" (Daniel 11:38). The United States will never win another war, and in their aggression America and Israel will be invaded, defeated, and occupied. Henry Wadsworth Longfellow wrote, "Whom the gods would destroy, they first make mad" and Brother Branham said, "The world is going insane."

This Newsletter serves those of like precious faith. Whoever will receive the truth is welcome to feed their soul from the waters of the River of Life. Everything here presented should be confirmed personally in your own Bible.

Ebola: New Drug could cure nearly any Viral Infection

August 10, 2011 — Most bacterial infections can be treated with antibiotics such as penicillin, discovered decades ago. However, such drugs are useless against viral infections, including influenza, the common cold and deadly hemorrhagic fevers such as Ebola. Now . . . a team of researchers at MIT's Lincoln Laboratory has designed a drug that can identify cells that have been infected by any type of virus, then kill those cells to terminate the infection . . . researchers tested their drug against 15 viruses, and found it was effective against all of them—including rhinoviruses that cause the common cold, H1N1 influenza, a stomach virus, a polio virus, dengue fever and several other types of hemorrhagic fever.
The drug works by targeting a type of RNA produced only in cells that have been infected by viruses. "In theory, it should work against all viruses," says Todd Rider, a senior staff scientist in Lincoln Laboratory's Chemical, Biological, and Nanoscale Technologies Group who invented the new technology . . . When viruses infect a cell, they take over its cellular machinery for their own purpose—that is, creating more copies of the virus. During this process, the viruses create long strings of double-stranded RNA (dsRNA), which is not found in human or other animal cells. As part of their natural defenses against viral infection, human cells have proteins that latch onto dsRNA, setting off a cascade of reactions that prevents the virus from replicating itself. However, many viruses can outsmart that system by blocking one of the steps further down the cascade.

Rider had the idea to combine a dsRNA-binding protein with another protein that induces cells to undergo apoptosis (programmed cell suicide)—launched, for example, when a cell determines it is en route to becoming cancerous. Therefore, when one end of the DRACO binds to dsRNA, it signals the other end of the DRACO to initiate cell suicide. . .

Comment: There isn't one government agency, private foundation or corporation anywhere in the world interested in developing this technology further? That's very strange considering the enormous potential for the entire human race! And why has the headline been turned into such a negative "question" in 2012? After all the positive spin it initially had last year—now it's reduced to just "one man" who wants to end viruses? Where's the rest of the world scientific community? It's as if they've been told to stay away and avoid this like the plague . . . there is no potential for a money trail if this puts Big Pharma out of business. The pale horse is riding (Revelation 6:8). Is this a US-orchestrated biological attack

‘Islamic State' Head-Choppers: Best Enemy Money can Buy

James Foleym
August 23, 2014 — Was American reporter James Foley beheaded by the so-called Islamic State? . . . the video depicting the beheading of James Foley has taken its place as part of a Zionist propaganda campaign designed to defame Islam and keep the US fighting and killing Israel's enemies. Was that, in fact, why it was created? In a word, yes. ["Hollywood" illusion shows Foley in 'Gitmo orange' shalwar kameez beside actor on soap box]. The so-called Islamic State is not what it claims to be. Like the Federal Reserve, which is neither federal nor has it any reserves, the Islamic State is neither Islamic nor a state. It is a terrorist group that was created by US intelligence and Zionist-allied mercenaries, trained at CIA bases in Jordan, and unleashed on the people of Syria and Iraq to destabilize those countries in service to Israel . . . "Since only a hated foe brings people together, it is necessary to create an enemy—even a mythical one—to foster national USrael unity" (Levi Strauss) . . .
Egyptian media outlet Egy-Press is reporting that Islamic State's self-proclaimed caliph, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, is an Israeli Mossad agent whose real name is Shimon Eliot. According to Egy-Press, Eliot a.k.a. al-Baghdadi "has cooperated with US, British and Israeli intelligence to create an organization capable of attracting terrorist extremists around the world to one place."
Perhaps that would explain why Islamic State (formerly called ISIL and other names) has never attacked Israel—and has even pointedly refused to verbally support HAMAS, arguing that Muslims should not resist the Zionist entity occupying the Islamic holy land of Palestine. Instead, they prefer to attack Israel's enemies . . . while simultaneously demonizing Islam in the court of American and global public opinion. That is, they are doing what al-Qaeda does, only more so. Like Boko Haram, Islamic State hardly bothers to conceal the fact that it is a false-flag group whose mission is to conduct Zionist public relations stunts.

The world's Muslims should not just repudiate Islamic State; they should speak loudly and clearly, with one voice, emphasizing that IS is a bogus group created, trained and funded by the enemies of Islam, designed to wage Fourth Generation Warfare against Islam and Muslims. Full story:

The London 7/7 Bombings (made in Israel): a Murder Investigation"

August 24, 2014 — For years I have kept clear of this subject. My book "Terror on the Tube" about the London bombings gave a minimal role to Israeli agents, by way of manipulating the surveillance and security companies (ICTS, Verint Systems, etc), operating on the London Underground, that were clearly Israeli-owned.
It described Netanyahu's apparent foreknowledge of the event, but drew no conclusions from it.

However things have now changed with a former Mossad agent more or less admitting, in a slip of the tongue, that they did it: while discussing an explosive maybe used in the London bombings, Juval Aviv says: "it's easy to put a truck bomb as we did . . . as happened in London." All comments below that video accepted that he had made an admission, of Mossad perpetrating the London Bombings.

Mr. Aviv was the Mossad counter-terror agent described by George Jonas in his novel, "Vengeance: The True Story of an Israeli Counter-Terrorist Team" (1984) and the central character in the Spielberg film about this. He has a book, "Staying Safe" . . . Full story:

Comment: Furthermore it would seem that 'Drummer' Lee Rigby, allegedly murdered by fanatical Nigerian Islamists, did not exist but is a fabricated identity employed to generate division within England and worldwide against innocent Islam to hasten the 'hot stage' of World War III.

How many photographs are there of 'Drummer' Lee Rigby? I have seen only two. Doesn't he look good in his 'Full-Bull' uniform that was especially taken, but by whom and when? How about just prior to his 'imaginary death!

Then there is the 'wedding' photograph, but only the one again, but he is no longer married to that girl is he.

Lee Rigby served in Afghanistan as a 'gunner', and in Germany and a few other overseas postings, but simply remained 'Drummer', just about the lowest specialist rank you can get. I wonder how he paid the maintenance to his 'Ex'.

But Lee Rigby wasn't just a 'drummer', was he? He also served as a 'recruiter', and I immediately think of the old song 'The twa recruiting sergeants'. Do soldiers of the rank of 'Drummer' these days work to entice young people into the British Army? I wouldn't think so. But hang on a minnie! Somebody stated, "We just called him Drummer." So was that his nick-name or was it his rank? From my memories of the soldiers/musicians I worked with at Earls Court, Colchester and Edinburgh in 1975, the soldiers were still very rank orientated, so 'Drummer' was not a nick-name!

So did 'Drummer' Lee Rigby even play the drums? Did you know that the drummers in the Royal Marines are also Buglers? Learning to play the drums is that easy, you would pick it up in just a couple of months, the sides/snare drum that is. The tenor and bass drum is even easier, but normally bass drummers are simply selected from the tenors.

Then of course there was that 'other' job that Lee Rigby worked at, the 'Charity Organisation', I think it was. So was 'Drummer' Lee Rigby even in the Band of the Fusiliers? Of course not. That is why there was the explanation of 'We just called him Drummer"! There is just one last little detail; to get to wear the 1850's style 'Full-Bull' uniform, one was supposedly in 'the band'; I mean can you actually picture British soldiers wearing such a uniform fighting in Afghanistan?

Then we go to the very short video of Lee Rigby crossing over the street but fail to get to see the actual collision. I was told that this was a busy little street, but you notice that there was no 'oncoming' traffic at the time of this incident, which is very strange, but it does allow for that particular CCTV camera to get a full and proper view of the incident. Wasn't that 'lucky'! Of course you also notice that the video clip has been slowed down which simply means that we cannot judge exactly how fast everything was moving, but at least we can see that the 'pedestrian' is taking rather large strides of about 45". Please think about this for one moment. Soldiers march at a step of about 30", and so this large stride has to be considered extremely odd. Why was this pedestrian taking such large steps? Wish I knew. This pedestrian was also wearing a 'hoodie', so just exactly how were the 'murderers' actually able to 'identify' their victim?

We are told by our superiors that the collision was about 30-40 KPH. We are told that the force of this collision knocked Lee Rigby to the ground. I don't think so! In normal conditions, a driver of a motor car about to have an accident suddenly spots the danger, says "@**#" as he/she immediately applies the brake and endeavours to avoid the collision. This application of the brakes, forces the nose of the motor car down, and any pedestrian would be struck closer to the ankle than the knee. However, if a motor car maintains speed, or accelerates, then the nose of the motor car remains fairly level, and would strike a pedestrian just below the knee.

In the video, you can see that the 'pedestrian' has crossed over past the centre of the carriageway as he crosses the road at an angle. This simply means that if the pedestrian was struck by the motorcar which was behind him, he would be struck in the vicinity of his right leg, just below the knee. This would cause the pedestrian's leg to buckle, and the pedestrian would then start to fall over the bonnet of the motor car.

The motor car would then come into contact with the left leg, again just below the knee and the forward motion of the motor car would then lift the pedestrian off his feet, and the body would then land on the right side of the bonnet of the motor car. Depending on the speed and the force of this collision, the body could even end up against the windscreen of the motor car before flipping over the motor car to land on the carriageway.

At the speed of 30-40 KPH as we have been given by our superiors, the pedestrian should have had the right leg broken by the initial impact, just below the knee. The body would then have mounted the bonnet of the motor car with the legs travelling in a larger arc than the rest of the body, and the body would then have landed at a point prior to the point of impact. For the body to have landed on the footpath in front of the point of impact is ludicrous!

In the video, there are a couple of cars in front of the motor car that deviates across the centre to seemingly collide with the pedestrian. It is normal that the people within these two vehicles would be looking forward and thus be totally unaware of what was happening behind them. However, there were also a couple of cars behind the 'offender's vehicle. What would their reactions be on seeing the pedestrian being struck?

These drivers would not have time to think, they would react on impulse, and the impulse trained into them would be to immediately stop and render assistance to the injured pedestrian. They would also approach the driver of the car and speak to him, asking him if he was alright, asking him what happened and possibly also abuse him for being so stupid. Other cars coming up behind these stationary motor cars would also be forced to stop as they cannot drive past the accident, and thus more and more drivers would emerge on the scene. The two or three pedestrians standing below the CCTV would also have moved forward to assist the injured and get a better view of what happened. Now that didn't happen did it? Why? Because the 'collision' was placed on the footpath.

Once the 'collision' was located on the footpath, there was no impediment to the normal flow of traffic other than the rubber necks gawking at what would seem to be an 'acting scene'. . .

6.1 Earthquake near San Francisco, Sunday August 24

August 25, 2014 — Early on Sunday, a 6.1 magnitude earthquake struck the heart of wine country . . . But remember, this was only a 6.1 magnitude earthquake . . .
The average rate of big earthquakes—those larger than magnitude 7—has been 10 per year since 1979, the study reports. That rate rose to 12.5 per year starting in 1992, and then jumped to 16.7 per year starting in 2010—a 65 percent increase compared to the rate since 1979. This increase accelerated in the first three months of 2014 to more than double the average since 1979, the researchers report . . . According to the USGS, the frequency of earthquakes in the central and eastern U.S. has quintupled, to an average of 100 a year during the 2011-2013 period, up from only 20 per year during the 30-year period to 2000 . . .

US-NATO to deploy Ground Troops, conduct Large Scale Naval Exercises against 'Unnamed Enemy'

August 24, 2014 — The World is at a dangerous Crossroads. The Western military alliance is in an advanced state of readiness. And so is Russia. Russia is heralded as the "Aggressor" [following the US invasion and coup in Ukraine]. US-NATO military confrontation with Russia is contemplated . . .
The Russian Aggression Prevention Act (RAPA) is the culmination of more than twenty years of US-NATO war preparations, which consist in the military encirclement of both Russia and China:

From the moment the Soviet Union collapsed in 1991, the United States has relentlessly pursued a strategy of encircling Russia, just as it has with other perceived enemies like China and Iran. It has brought 12 countries in central Europe, all of them formerly allied with Moscow, into the NATO alliance. US military power is now directly on Russia's borders. (Steven Kinzer, Boston Globe, March 3, 2014, emphasis added).

On July 24, in consultation with the Pentagon, NATO's Europe commander General Philip Breedlove called for "stockpiling a base in Poland with enough weapons, ammunition and other supplies to support a rapid deployment of thousands of troops against Russia." (RT, July 24, 2014). According to General Breedlove, NATO needs "pre-positioned supplies, pre-positioned capabilities and a basing area ready to rapidly accept follow-on forces":

"He plans to recommend placing supplies—weapons, ammunition and ration packs—at the headquarters to enable a sudden influx of thousands of NATO troops" (Times, August 22, 2014, emphasis added) . . .

While this renewed East-West confrontation has mistakenly been labeled a "New Cold War", none of the safeguards of The Cold War era prevail. International diplomacy has collapsed. Russia has been excluded from the Group of Eight (G-8), which has reverted to the G-7 (Group of Seven Nations). There is no "Cold War East-West dialogue" between competing superpowers geared towards avoiding military confrontation. In turn, the United Nations Security Council has become a de facto mouthpiece of the US State Department.

The timeline towards war with Russia has been set. The Wales NATO venue on September 4-5, 2014 is of crucial importance . . .

When war becomes peace, the world is turned upside down. In a bitter irony, nukes are now upheld by Washington as "instruments of peace". ['Newspeak' and 'doublethink' forewarned by George Orwell in his book, "1984"].

In addition to nuclear weapons, the use of chemical weapons is also envisaged.

Methods of non-conventional warfare are also contemplated by US-NATO including financial warfare, trade sanctions, covert ops, cyber warfare, geoengineering and environmental modification technologies (ENMOD). But Russia also has extensive capabilities in these areas.

Western leaders in high office are involved in a criminal undertaking which threatens the future of humanity . . . Full story:

Russian Aggression Prevention Act: Direct Path to Nuclear War with Russia

August 22, 2014 — The Russian Aggression Prevention Act (RAPA) "Provides major non-NATO ally status for Ukraine, Georgia, and Moldova for purposes of the transfer or possible transfer of defense articles or defense services." Major non-NATO ally status would for practical purposes give NATO membership to these nations, as it would allow the US to move large amounts of military equipment and forces to them without the need for approval of other NATO member states. Thus RAPA would effectively bypass long-standing German opposition to the US request to make Ukraine and Georgia part of NATO.
RAPA "Directs DOD [US Department of Defense] to assess the capabilities and needs of the Ukrainian armed forces" and "Authorizes the President, upon completion of such assessment, to provide specified military assistance to Ukraine." It would have the US quickly supply Ukraine with $100 million worth of weapons and equipment, including anti-tank and anti-aircraft weapons, crew weapons, grenade launchers, machine guns, ammunition, and Mine Resistant Ambush Protected vehicles.

RAPA requires the Obama administration to: "use all appropriate elements of United States national power . . . to protect the independence, sovereignty, and territorial and economic integrity of Ukraine and other sovereign nations in Europe and Eurasia from Russian aggression." This includes "substantially increasing United States and NATO support for the armed forces of the Republics of Poland, Estonia, Lithuania, and Latvia," and "substantially increasing the complement of forward-based NATO forces in those states" . . .

In Russia, Putin now is under intense domestic political pressure to send Russian forces into Eastern Ukraine, in order to stop the attacks by the Ukrainian military on the cities there, which were once part of the Soviet Union. These attacks have created an absolute humanitarian catastrophe. On August 5, 2014, the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees reported that 740,000 Eastern Ukrainians had fled to Russia. They go there because Russia is close, and because most of the refugees are ethnic Russians, a fact that explains why the Russophobes in Kiev have been quite willing to indiscriminately bombard their cities.

What is taking place in Eastern Ukraine amounts to "ethnic cleansing," the forced removal of ethnic Russians from Eastern Ukraine. This is a process that is fully supported by the US [as in Palestine, Lebanon, Syria, Iraq, Iran, Libya, etc.] . . . Such ignorance is embodied by The Russian Aggression Prevention Act, which if enacted will put us on a direct course for nuclear war with Russia. Full story:

Comment: Ukraine and Georgia were once Khazaria whose people, originally from Lower Mongolia, are called 'Jews' today. These non-Semitic self-styled (Ashkenazi) Jews who were defeated by Russia between AD965 and 969 conquered England from Holland in 1688 and Russia in 1915. Now they rule England and the world from the tiny nation state of the City of London. By means of the infamous Balfour Declaration drawn by Nahum ben Joseph Samuel Sokolow, secretary general of the World Zionist Congress, and approved by Lord Rothschild then sent to British Foreign Secretary, Arthur James Balfour who on November 2, 1917 chose Jews over the descendants of Abraham, Isaac and Israel as heirs of the Promised Land.

By their control of the Fed and central banks worldwide, communism, capitalism, the intelligence services, militaries and treasure of the colonies of the City of London such as Australia, Britain, Canada and the USA, the writing is on the wall for the US dollar, her Constitution and people. Now they are deploying the resources of these apostate once Christian nations, naked of the Blood, spiritually bankrupt, blind to the faith of Jesus Christ and spewed from His mouth to re-conquer Russia from Khazaria (Revelation 3:15-17; 18:1-4).

The International Jews of the City of London are making preparations for the demise of the United States and the US dollar. These non-Semitic Khazar Jews know they are 'Gog,' and that Ezekiel prophesied their re-conquest of Khazaria and Russia and their re-invasion of Israel after its soon-coming defeat.

What Russia can do about Ukraine

August 20, 2014. — Having served Washington's propaganda purposes, the downed Malaysian airliner and the alleged Russian armored column that entered Ukraine and was allegedly destroyed have dropped out of the news even though both stories remain completely and totally unresolved. Washington's stooge government in Ukraine has not released the records of communications between Ukrainian air traffic control and Malaysian flight 17, and Washington has not released the photos from its satellite that was directly overhead at the time of the airliner's demise.
We can safely and conclusively conclude from this purposeful withholding of evidence that the evidence does not support Washington's and Kiev's propaganda. . . The Western media follows Washington's lead, not Moscow's or Beijing's. As facts are not relevant to the outcome, Moscow and Beijing are in a losing situation in the propaganda war . . .  Washington is interested in fomenting crises, not in resolving them.

Kiev's military assault on eastern and southern Ukraine is not going to stop because Europeans finally see the light and object. Europeans not only stood aside for 13 years while Washington bombed civilians in Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Pakistan, Yemen, and organized outside forces to attack Syrians, while isolating Iran for military attack, but also actively participated in the attacks. Europe has stood aside while Israel has massacred Palestinians on numerous occasions. For Russia to rely on Europe's moral conscience is to rely on something that does not exist.

The continued slaughter and destruction of the Russian populations in eastern and southern Ukraine will eventually demoralize the Russian people and undermine their support of Putin's government for failing to halt it. The Russian government's acceptance of the slaughter makes Russia look weak and encourages more aggression against Russia . . . If this very reasonable and diplomatic approach to Europe fails, then Russia and China know that they must prepare for war.

Three Unclean Spirits

In Revelation 3:16-17 Jesus defined this world's disposition of under the spirit of Laodicea, saying: "You are lukewarm and neither cold nor hot. You boast that you are materially rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing, but you are spiritually bankrupt, naked of the Blood, blind to the faith of Jesus Christ, and know it not; therefore I will spew you out of My mouth [for you have no part in My Word]".
The deceitfulness of iniquity in heart and life has placed earth under the power of satanic delusion by willfully distrusting God's revelation for the temporal pleasure of unrighteousness leading to judgment, damnation and death (II Thessalonians 2:10-12). Even those in the world church system who love the Lord but without revelation are following Death on his pale horse to potential perdition.

Revelation 6:8, "Behold a pale horse: the name of his rider [Satan] is Death, and Hell followed with him. And power was given to them over the fourth part of the earth to kill with sword, and with hunger, and with death, and with brutal bestial earth-bound men".

The measure of a man is "the stature of the fullness of Christ" witnessed by the Token of His Life on display rather than his material success and worldly popularity. Indeed when we consider great men of God such as Job, Moses, David, Isaiah, John the Baptist, Jesus Christ and the seven angels to the Church Ages we discover that they were extremely unpopular with the general population in their day, and rejected even by many of their followers.

Matthew 24:3bGod displayed the heavenly Sign of His second or 'parousia' Coming to the world promised in Psalm 19, Daniel 7:9, Matthew 26:64, Acts 1:9-11, Revelation 1:7 and 14, and the earthly sign of a Prophet with warning and God's way to escape judgment by "entering into the unity of the faith and of the knowledge of the Son of God unto a perfect man" (Ephesians 4:13) "for the manifestation of the Sons of God and the translation" (Amos 3:7; Malachi 4:5-6; Matthew 17:11; Luke 17:28-30; Revelation 3:14 and 10:7; Romans 8:19; I Thessalonians 4:14-17). God separates His people by the revealed Word of the hour. Those who unite with "the present Truth" are baptized into His Body; all who come against the revealed Word are excluded from grace and will unite against His people in the time of trouble.

€2 coin Revelation 17:3-4When Israel's religious system fulfilled its purpose and its impersonators united the nation against Jesus Messiah, God sent Rome's General Titus to destroy His Temple and Jerusalem. In this our day the world church system has rejected "The Revelation of Jesus Christ, which God gave Him, to show to His servants things which must shortly come to pass; and He sent and signified it by His angel [William Branham] to His servant John: who bore record of the Word of God, and of the testimony of Jesus Christ, and of all things that He saw" (Revelation 1:1-2). The opening of the Seals in 1963 brought Christ back to earth in W_O_R_D form (I Corinthians 13:10). His rejection by denominational impersonators has Him knocking without their camp (Revelation 3:20). This second crucifixion of the Word will culminate in the close of the Gentile dispensation and grace signified by the sinking of Los Angeles and a universal convulsion of nature typed by the local phenomena of Matthew 27:50-53. Thereafter the world's religions will unite under Rome who by refinancing the US dollar with gold backing will rule the world as portrayed on this €2 coin (Revelation 17:3-4). Eventually she will kill all that refuse the mark of the beast which is her Babylonian trinitarian worship (Revelation 13:11-18).

Israel's national sign was Matthew 24:2-3a, 15-21 and Luke 21:20-24: "When you see Jerusalem compassed with armies, then know that the desolation thereof is nigh." On March 8, 1963 the Lord opened the Seventh Seal and descended over Sunset mountain with the open Book to catch His prophet into a constellation of angels as described in Revelation 4:1, 6:1 and 10:1-7. Brother Branham and his party returned to Sunset Mountain in 1964 and on March 25 the Lord gave the world a sign of the universal convulsion of nature (Hebrews 12:24-29). "The Holy Spirit said, 'Pick up a rock laying there; throw it up in the air; when it comes down say, THUS SAITH THE LORD, there'll be judgment strike the earth. Tell [Brother Woods] that he will see the hand of God in the next few hours'."

Alaska 1964"I told Mr. Wood (that's present tonight) and I guess eight or ten of the men—or fifteen that was there at that time, when it took place the next morning, where the Lord came down in a whirlwind and ripped the mountain out around us, and cut the tops of the trees loose [religious hierarchy and spiritual principles (Matthew 3:9; Isaiah 40:40 – Ed], and made three blasts and said, "Judgment is heading towards the west coast." Two days after that Alaska almost sunk beneath the earth. And since then up and down the coast the belches of God's judgment against that spiritual screen."

"There is a iron curtain; there is a bamboo curtain, and there is a sin curtain. Civilizations travel with the sun; so has the Gospel. They come from the east and went west like the sun goes, and now it's on the west coast [Zechariah 14:7; Matthew 24:28]. It can't go no further; if it goes further, it'll be back east again [for Daniel's Seventieth Week]."

"The prophet said, "There will come a day that cannot be called night or day," a dismal day, a lot of rain and fog, just enough how to know how to join a church or put your name on a book. But "it shall be Light about the evening time." This day this Scripture is fulfilled."

"The same S_U_N that rises in the east is the same S_U_N that sets in the west. And the same S_O_N of God that came in the east and vindicated Himself as God manifested in the flesh is the same S_O_N of God in the western hemisphere here, that's identifying Himself among the church tonight, the same yesterday, today, and forever. The evening Light of the Son has come. This day this Scripture is fulfilled before us" (This Day this Scripture is Fulfilled, p. 20:166-170).

William J. SeymourGod works through man and His command transmitted by Brother Branham, the forerunner of Christ's parousia Coming, to Brother Wood signified the millstone of judgment (Matthew 18:6) to be executed upon the Jews' Babylon of Hollywood and Los Angeles according to Revelation 18:21. It was here that God initiated the Pentecostal Revival under Brother William J. Seymour from which the Laodicea Church Age (1906-1963) took its rise. Preaching in Los Angeles in 1965 Brother Branham said under inspiration, "Stop just a minute, men. Look at your creeds that you serve. Look in your churches. Is it just exactly with the Word of God? Have you met every qualification? Say, "I'm a good man." So was Nicodemus, and so was all the rest. They were fine. See, that don't have nothing to do with it."

"And women, I want you to look in the mirror, and look what God requires a woman to do, and see in God's mirror, not in your church mirror now, in God's mirror, and see if you could qualify in your life the spiritual Bride of Jesus Christ."

"Ministers, think the same. Do you cut corners here to save somebody's feelings over yonder? Would you do this if they would put you out of the church? If you are feeling that way, my dear brother, let me warn you in the Name of Jesus Christ, flee from that right now."

"And lady, if you can't measure up to the qualification of a Christian, not as a nominal Christian, but in your heart and your life is patterned exactly like God's marriage certificate here says it has to be . . . And church member, if your church isn't like that can measure up to God's qualification of His Word, get out of it, and get into Christ."

"That's solemn warning. We don't know what time. And you don't know what time that this city one day is going to be laying out here in the bottom of this ocean."

"O, Capernaum," said Jesus, "thou who exalted into heaven will be brought down into hell, for if the mighty works had been done in Sodom and Gomorrah, it'd have been standing till this day." And Sodom and Gomorrah lays at the bottom of the Dead Sea, and Capernaum's in the bottom of the sea.
Thou city, who claims to be the city of the Angels, who's exalted yourself into heaven and sent all the dirty filthy things of fashions and things, till even the foreign countries come here to pick up our filth and send it away, with your fine churches and steeples, and so forth the way you do; remember, one day you'll be laying in the bottom of this sea. You're great honeycomb under you right now. The wrath of God is belching right beneath you. How much longer He'll hold this sandbar hanging over that, when that ocean out yonder a mile deep will slide in there plumb back to the Salton Sea. It'll be worse than the last day of Pompeii. Repent, Los Angeles. Repent the rest of you and turn to God. The hour of His wrath is upon the earth. Flee while there's time to flee and come into Christ" (Choosing a Bride, p. 34:7 – 35:5).

The sea denotes national multitudes seduced by the sorceries of this second Babylon of Los Angeles and Hollywood in her worldwide psychological war against Adam's race in lust, bad manners, idolatry, pornography and lewdness waged in film, tasteless song, entertainments, verse and fiction; a fifth column degenerating society, eroding discipline, corrupting morals, destroying family values; teaching children in infant's school to experiment sexually, encouraging them to question their orientation and legitimizing homosexuality. Her worldly arts, completely under the influence of vanity and in the service of idolatry will vanish with the city. Her agents and abettors are the great men of earth who own, make and control the law (Revelation 1:7; 6:15; 18:11, 23). The catastrophic sinking of Los Angeles will be answered by the cleaving of the Mount of Olives, the sun becoming black as sackcloth of hair and the moon as blood, an eruption of the Pacific Ring of fire and tsunamis sweeping the world will ignite the 'hot stage' of the present World War III.

This perversion is a contagion transmitted from delinquent pulpits by clergy who are "neither hot nor cold but lukewarm." neglecting to "study to show themselves approved of God by rightly dividing the Word to discover the present Truth" and in place of the "strait gate and narrow way" of God's unchanging Word they became men pleasers delivering Satan's humanistic social gospel to congregations "unwilling to endure sound doctrine, having turned their itching ears from the truth unto fables." Today's churches with their Babylonian trinity of gods and creeds are apostate like Israel that replaced God's Word with its antithesis, the Babylonian Talmud, and crucified the Lord of glory (Romans 11:32).

Israel's CrestThe Gospel Light has traveled from Jerusalem in the east to the United States in the west; as God fulfilled His national sign upon Israel, press releases and reports from the field state that the apostate (once) Christian world of the United States and NATO countries is provoking Judaeo-Communism to fulfill God's national sign upon the United States and the whole world. "The sign of . . . the end of the world" is found in Matthew 24:3c and 32-35: "Now learn a parable of the fig tree [Israel]; when his branch is yet tender, and puts forth leaves, you know that summer [the harvest of trees and the feasts of the Seventh Month, Tishri—the Feast of Trumpets in the first half of Daniel's Seventieth Week, Day of Atonement when Israel will be born as a nation in one day and the Feast of Tabernacles in the second half of Daniel's Seventieth Week, followed by the millennium, general resurrection, white Throne judgment, and in the eighth day of the Feast of Tabernacles the renewed heavens and renewed earth in eternity is] nigh. So you likewise, when you shall see all of these things, know that it is near, even at the doors. Truly I tell you, This generation shall not pass, till all these things are fulfilled. Heaven and earth shall pass away, but My Words shall not pass away".

Revelation 16:12-16, "And the sixth angel poured out his Vial upon the great river Euphrates; and its water was dried up, that the way might be prepared for the kings from the east. And I saw three unclean spirits like frogs come out of the mouth of the dragon, and out of the mouth of the beast, and out of the mouth of the false prophet. For they are spirits of demons, doing miracles, that go out to the kings of the whole inhabited world, to gather them together for the war of that great day of God the Almighty. (Behold, I come as a thief. Blessed is he that watches, and keeps his garments lest he walks naked, and they see his shame.) And they gathered them together to the place called in Hebrew Armageddon".

The Seven Vials pour out God's anger upon make-believers and un-believers at the conclusion of each of the Church Ages to purge the foolish virgin and mark and punish the tares or hypocrites. The Vials were typed in the Old Testament by the Ordeal of Jealousy whereby a husband brought a wife suspected of unfaithfulness to the priest to be tried before the Lord. When Israel's two prophets reveal this mystery it will enable the 144,000 elect to discern the true Church since glorified and translated, from the false church throughout history.

We live under the Sixth Vial wherein the eastern border of the Holy Roman Empire, the great river Euphrates that divided Christendom and the west from the barbarous and savage world of the kings from the sun-rising dried up as the spirit of Laodicea wooed men to love the material world and take pleasure in unrighteousness, becoming "neither hot nor cold but lukewarm," quenching  the spirit of holiness ministered to the Philadelphian Church Age by the angel John Wesley, and as fear of "the ecclesiastical powers" of Catholic creed and superstitions subsided (Feast of the Trumpets, p. 21:160).

East of Euphrates lay natural Babylon, the seat of ancient civilization, the pagan source of Talmudic Judaism and Judaeo-Catholicism and archetype of the Gentile world empires. The Sixth Trumpet sounded just before the Armistice when the Holy Spirit restrained the four horse riders from expanding World War I into Armageddon (Revelation 7:1-3; 9:13-15). The 200 million demonic horsemen had been bound by the Euphrates which was the eastern extremity of the Roman Empire because Rome could not overcome the Parthian Empire. The twelve Tribes remain east of the Euphrates and cannot cross to the land of the covenant "for fear of the Jews" (ibid, p. 21:160). Spirit's do not die and these demonic horsemen represent the demonic spirits of all four Gentile world empires culminating in papal Rome.

This is signified by Revelation 13:1-2, "I stood upon the sand of the sea, and saw a beast rise up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and upon his horns ten crowns [Papal Rome], and upon his heads blasphemous names [Catholic, Lutheran, Presbyterian, Pentecostal, etc.]. And the beast that I saw was like a leopard, and his feet were as the feet of a bear, and his mouth as the mouth of a lion: and the dragon gave him his power, and his seat [Rome], and great [papal] authority".

Daniel 7:19-21 describes what Papal Rome will do in the end of time, "I would know the truth of the fourth beast, which was diverse from all the others, exceeding dreadful, whose teeth were of iron, and his nails of brass; which devoured, broke in pieces, and stamped the residue with his feet; and of the ten horns that were in his head, and of the other which came up, and before whom three fell; even of that horn that had eyes, and a mouth that spoke great things, whose look was more stout than his fellows. I watched, and the same horn made war with the saints, and prevailed against them".

The opposing Kings from the sun-rising on the other hand come from far beyond Euphrates as representatives of all the barbarianism of the remotest world (Genesis 4:16). The drying up of the Euphrates has dissolved the demarcation of west from east, Christendom from heathendom, in a social as well as terrestrial sense. Confusion is exacerbated by the spirit of Laodicea meaning "people's rights": Communism, egalitarianism, libertarianism, multiculturalism (miscegenation), Zionism, Nazism, humanism, capitalism, feminism, homosexual and animal rights, no-fault divorce, dual citizenship and other demands bastard born of the same stable—abhorrent to the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob and in asymmetrical warfare legislated to divide and conquer your family, community and nation with hate. The quotient is a global repetition of the original sin by miscegenation between the seed of the Serpent and the children of Adam "as it was in the days of Noah" (Matthew 24:37; Genesis 6:1-4). And homosexuality . . . "as it was in the days of Lot" (Luke 17:28-30; Genesis 18).

Although lukewarm, Christendom has been civilized and gentrified by the Word of God, inculcated with conscience and bound by moral principles; thus "the way for the [Serpent's seed] kings from the east is prepared" by our hypocritical over-refinement without the sword of the Spirit in the firm hand of faith, rendering us defenseless in face of the spiritual, moral and physical onslaught with which we have been increasingly smitten since the beginning of the twentieth century.

NATO's Brigadier W.F.K. Thompson stated in 1968 that NATO should remain militarily strong; unfortunately he also believed "the ideological content of Marxism will continue to be eroded  so that the two systems of society will gradually become more and more compatible."

This is precisely what Rowan Gaither, president of the Ford Foundation, confided personally to Norman Dodd, Director of Research for the Reece Committee of the US Congress in 1953, "Mr. Dodd, all of us here at the policy making level of the foundation have at one time or another served in the 0SS (the Office of Strategic Services [under the presidency of F.D. Roosevelt] the forerunner of the CIA), or the European Economic Administration. During those times, and without exception, we operated under directives issued by the White House. We are continuing [through the Truman presidency and into the Eisenhower presidency] to be guided by just such directives . . . . The substance of the directives under which we operate is that we shall use our grant-making power to so alter life in the United States that we can be comfortably merged with the Soviet Union" (The Sixth Trumpet and the Present Reality).

The enemy is within the camp, and has been ruling the United States from the White House from the days of Woodrow Wilson, certainly F.D., if not Theodore Roosevelt.

This is what one time USSR delegate to the UN Dmitri Manuilski laid down: "To win, we shall need the element of surprise. The bourgeoisie will have to be put to sleep . . . the Capitalist countries, stupid and decadent, will rejoice to co-operate in their own destruction . . ."

The "element of surprise" will emerge when the Eastern satellites turn out, after all, still to be in the control of hard-line Communists, while at present they are being administered to the West as increasing doses of hypnotics. Brother Branham said the self-same thing. In disbelieving Genesis 3:15 apostate Christendom is trying to buy friendship with the seed of the Serpent in exchange for foreign aid; when it is no longer able to pay it will discover the "enmity" between them. When the foolish virgins snap out of their hypnosis they will find "the marriage of the Lamb has come to pass," grace has ended and the tribulation and 'hot stage' of World War III have begun. With Christendom's productive economy in communist lands and no manufacturing capacity it cannot trade back to prosperity. When the bankrupt earthquake-ravaged USA is defeated and occupied by Russian troops, and Israel is occupied by Russian and Islamic forces, the Judaeo-Roman church in federation with the world's religions will reveal her hand to 'trump' Judaeo-Communism by negotiating world peace and one world order under her Pope. In covenant with Jewish banksters she will refinance the US dollar with gold backing and 'Pax Romana' will revive the world economy and attain global hegemony.

Now we have pinpointed when and how the Kings from the East began their global invasion of Christendom. Nevertheless their invasion was not uncalled, for "three unclean spirits like frogs came out of the mouth of the Dragon (Imperial Rome – Revelation 12:3-4), and out of the mouth of the beast (Papal Rome – Revelation 13:1-3), and out of the mouth of the false prophet (the Pope who will be incarnate as "the Beast" – Revelation 13:2-10; 17:1-11). For they are spirits of demons, doing signs, that go out to the kings of the whole inhabited world, to gather them together for the war of that great day of God the Almighty." (See The Spoken Word is mightier than the Sword).

"Rome is the habitation of demons, the hold of every foul spirit, and cage of every unclean and hateful bird" (Revelation 18:2). Brother Branham said, "The three unclean spirits is the three isms . . . There was communism, fascism, Nazism. They were spirits. Communism is a spirit. It's in Catholicism . . . I believe it's a spirit, the sleeping virgin, confederation of church, Judaism on the rejecting of Christ, the Jews that rejected it, and Catholicism [that rejected His revelation]. Because you see it come out of the false prophet (See?), out of the mouth of the false prophet which was popery, from out of the beast. See? And all that where it come out of, you can see the backgrounds where it is."

"And that's the three unclean spirits that sets the whole world to Armageddon. See? And that's them three unclean spirits. Then you get that right in with the three woes" [earth's birth pains for renewal are World Wars I, II, and Armageddon] (Thy Place, #61-0808).

Judaeo-Communism follows Judaeo-Roman Catholicism and the Eastern and Western churches were forsaken. Having grown wealthy by charging for prayers to their saints they built the grandest buildings but their clergy had ritual without faith to impart and did not live above the reproach of the Word so the Russians did not resist communism during World War I. Since World War II Fascism and Nazism have been gathered into NATO along with many Soviet satellites. The aftermath of World War III will see the whole world gathered under Romanism as we have explained above, and after the midst of Daniel's Seventieth Week Rome will abrogate her covenant with the Jewish banksters and be forsaken by the "ten horns." These kingdoms, geopolitical powers or regions that will arise from the nations to form Lucifer's totalitarian one world government under Rome's deified Devil-incarnate head and the international Jews shall unite with then re-communized Russia, and the unclean spirits will gather the world to Armageddon.

As God raised up Nebuchadnezzar to take the apostate Judeans captive, raze His Temple and commence "the times of Gentile dominion" over Jerusalem and Israel, then raised up Titus to utterly demolish His Temple, He has risen up Judaeo-Communism to destroy the false church, and "in one hour such great riches will come to naught. And every shipmaster, and all the company in ships, and sailors, and as many as trade by sea [will] stand afar off" to avoid radiation from the Judaeo-Communist nuclear bomb that will annihilate Vatican City State (Revelation 18:8-20).

The Prophet said, "The love of money is the root of all evil. And I believe that right along in there will start the ball a-rolling. Now, the Catholic church back there from charging for mass and so forth, holds the wealth of the world. You remember, the Bible said she was rich, and how she was. And remember, not only just on one nation, she's rich on every nation there is under heaven. She reaches out. She has the money. Now, what they don't have, Wall Street has which is controlled by the Jews."

"When Jacob . . . become Israel [while returning to Canaan], he really had the money, but his money wouldn't buy him nothing (See?) to Esau [a type of Rome]. Esau had it too, see both anti and the one . . ." [Brother Branham is demonstrating by this type that it is now time for Israel to return to Canaan but he can no more purchase Rome's favour with Jewish wealth that Jacob could bribe Esau with his flocks and herds, because Rome has greater wealth]".

"Now, watch here. I said they might want to consolidate together on the money, and the Roman power take the Jewish power of money, breaking the covenant [as prophesied in Daniel 9:27 and Revelation 17:16-18] . . ." (William Branham, The Revelation of the Seven Seals, p. 505:2-3).

What is the objective of Jewish-controlled US, NATO and the City of London in their genocidal aggression, invasion and coup in the Ukraine but the power of the purse, money! The Jewnited States immediately stole Ukraine's gold as part-cover for bullion stolen from Germany and other nations by their privately-owned Federal Reserve and US Treasury.

zerodollarThe Jew's Babylonian fractional reserve system of banking depends upon ever-increasing consumption and inflation in order to create credit to pay interest. The sleight of hand 'economic cycle' so-called is the scheme by which prices and interest rates are pedaled at the cost of nations, industries and individuals. Right now the world, including governments and  banksters, is in the red. Their balance sheets are hypothecated fiction in hopes they can ride out their tsunami of greed and corruption, and to the devil with the last man.

The US dollar is backed by the threat of assassinating 'recalcitrant' leaders or the overthrow and devastation of 'dissident' nations. Blackmail forcing oil producing nations to sell in US dollars with parity pricing is the mechanism that maintains the demand for and the value of US dollars. The people whose oligarchs stole Russia's productive economy after the collapse of the USSR transferred the productive economy and employment opportunities of the United States to mainly Communistic third world economies "to so alter life in the United States that it can be comfortably merged with Russia" and the Third World in one totalitarian world government "under directives issued by the White House." Now do you understand Genesis 3:15?

Occult flagIt is not intended that America long continue as the world's most powerful economy; all things being equal she will soon be overtaken by China. Under the plans of her colonial master, the City of London, she has a limited life as their "milch cow." Ingrate megalomaniac psychopath Prime Minister Netanyahu of their mendicant colony Israel boasts: "Once we squeeze all we can out of the United States, it can dry up and blow away." Until that time the world's most powerful military will be deployed to "mow the grass" beyond Palestine and plough the ground for the re-conquest and re-communization of Russia. Sinners believe this crusade has the potential of maintaining the inflated petrodollar, for Russia is the largest oil-producing nation, which, with BRICS countries exports 17.59%, and with Iran and Venezuela, 25.92% of world production (IEA figures for 2011); but the dollar will sink with Los Angeles and Russia will conquer the United States almost four years before the occult six pointed star of Edom flies over the Kremlin.

The best politicians money can buy and the most egregious propaganda has seeded 318 million American "useful idiots" to the conquest of Russia via Ukraine while other colonies such as Britain, Canada, occupied Germany and NATO allies queue to volunteer the lives of their young men. "To prepare the way to Iran and Russia through Syria, Iraq, and Ukraine; make straight in the desert a highway for the image unto the beast. Every valley shall be exalted, and every mountain and hill made low: the crooked shall be made straight and the rough places smooth" (Isaiah 40:3-4). Even lap dog Australia is checking oil and water, patching tyres and cleaning the windscreens on jet fighters to kill US-trained, armed and funded ISIS/ISIL mercenaries whose self-proclaimed caliph Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi is allegedly the Israeli Mossad agent Shimon Eliot.

"Oh what a tangled web we weave,
When first we practice to deceive!"
(Sir Walter Scott).

"The Bible said that [America] come up like a little lamb: freedom of religion; two little horns, civil and ecclesiastical. And after while they united, and he spoke like the Dragon did, and done everything the Dragon did before him. And the Bible said they made a image unto the beast: the Confederation of Church, just what they got in right now here in New York City. And there that great big morgue up there . . . And all you Methodist, Baptist, and Pentecostals, and every one of you ecumenical people out there trying to do such things as that, and selling out your birthrights to join that bunch of Babylon . . . What's the matter with you? Sure. Selling your birthrights like Esau did, for a mess of pottage, that's all you're going to get; that's all: forming an image of the beast. Exactly. Don't you fear communism; you fear Catholicism."
"Oh, they say it would come in with flatteries like a lamb [Daniel 11:21]; but said watch it, behind it's a wolf. It's a sneaker; you watch it (Yes, sir.), 'cause it's contrary to the Word. What the Word says has to come to pass. Communism ain't doing nothing but playing right in the hands of God. That's exactly. And why do they have to do that? God had to permit communism, so that it would make His Word come to pass" (Revelation 18:8-20). . .

"God had to let communism raise up. What did it do? Then it run all these here morgues together and made a Confederation of Churches, to join up to make an image of the beast, just what His Word said would take place (Revelation 13:11-18). Don't you worry about that. You watch the thing it's forming under it. . . Now, now, therefore we find out that it's communism that's gathered together. God said Gog and Magog there will gather together (sure) to bring about the battle (Revelation 16:16; Ezekiel 38; 39). That's exactly true, 'cause it's going to bring these forces together. It has to come; the Bible said it would" (William Branham, Restoration of the Bride Tree, p. 51:2-3; 53:2, 4).

The Ukraine and Georgia were once Khazaria, the homeland of the non-Semitic anti-Semitic self-styled Ashkenazim Jews. These International Jews are intent on re-colonizing Khazaria as a homeland because they know they cannot forever occupy the land of the Israelites whom they impersonate, and where there will soon be a massacre. They are also determined to re-conquer and re-communize Russia; they know they are "Gog" who will rule Russia and re-conquer Israel for her oil reserves and the vast mineral wealth of the Dead Sea.

Brother Branham said, Revelation chapter 13 "shows the power of the Roman Catholic Church and what she will do through organization. Remember this is the false vine. Let it name the Name of the Lord, it does so only in a lie. Its headship is not of the Lord but of Satan. It finally ends up completely identified with the beast. The whore riding on the scarlet beast distinctly shows her power is the god of force (Satan) and not our God, the Lord Jesus Christ" (An Exposition of the Seven Church Ages, p. 36:1; Daniel 11:38).

Life May 13, 1963Speaking of the Sign of Christ's second or 'parousia' God publicly displayed on February 28, 1963 the Prophet said, "The "Life" magazine packed an article of it, "Mystic circle of Light goes up in the air above Tucson and Phoenix" in the same way that I told you nearly a year before it happened, how it would be in like a triangle. The picture hangs in the church down there. You that took that magazine has it. There it was just exactly. They said it was 27 miles high and 30 miles across. They don't understand yet what happened. It appeared mysteriously and went away mysteriously. Brother Fred Sothmann, Brother Gene Norman, and I stand there, three as a witness, like it was up on top of the mountain: Peter, James, and John to give witness; stood there and watched it when it happened and seen it done (Matthew 17:1-12). There it is hanging in the sky so far there's no humidity, no moisture, nothing to make a fog. How could it come there? It was the Angels of God returning back after their Message. This day that prophecy has been fulfilled in our midst. This day this Scripture has been fulfilled" (Revelation 10:1-4).

"Watch. Seven Seals has been opened, the whirlwinds to the west coast. Now, don't miss it like they did back yonder. Now, our attention a little closer to our day" (This Day this Scripture is Fulfilled, p. 178-181).

Brother Branham was referring to the earthquake prophesied to sink Los Angeles at the end of the dispensation of grace and to Isaiah 61:1-2a which Jesus read in the synagogue at His first Coming as recorded in Luke 4:16-21 at the end of the dispensation of Law, and warning his people not to miss the sign of His second or 'parousia' Coming and their Pentecostal Jubilee as Israel missed their sign and their Atonement Jubilee. He was also referring to his Message "Birth Pains" in which he expounded the spiritual significance of World Wars I, II, the soon-coming World War III and their import as signs of time.

The sinking of Los Angeles at the close of grace will be accompanied by an earthquake in Jerusalem that will cleave the Mount of Olives Isaiah 29:6, Ezekiel 43:2, Zechariah 14:4-5, Revelation 7:2 and 16:18 and a manifestation of the Shekinah to Israel heralding the commencement of Daniel's Seventieth Week and the revelation of their Seven Trumpet mysteries as prophesied in Isaiah 66:15, Zechariah 14:4, Matthew 24:3b and 30.

Isaiah 66:15-18, "Behold, the Lord will come in flaming fire [the Shekinah of Zechariah 14:4], the rolling of His chariots like a whirlwind to render His anger in fury, His rebuke with flames of fire. For by fire and by His sword the Lord will execute judgment upon all flesh: and those slain by the Lord will be many. They who sanctify themselves, and purify themselves in order to go into the [sacred] gardens (Isaiah 65:3) behind one [tree] in the midst, eating swine's flesh, and the abomination, and the mouse, shall be consumed together, says the Lord. For I know their works and their imagination: I will gather all nations and tongues; and they shall come, and see My glory".

These verses establish that the judgments of Isaiah 59:15b-21 will commence from the manifestation of the Sixth Seal, Seventh Trumpet and Seventh Vial at the close of the Gentile dispensation. All nations will see God's glory when Russia and the Islamic nations invade, utterly defeat and forever disarm Israel, causing the mass exodus of non-Semitic, anti-Semitic self-styled 'Jews' thereby enabling blood Israelites of the twelve Tribes to safely return to the land of their Covenant for redemption.

Isaiah 66:19-20, Then the Lord "will set a sign among them, and will send those [blood Israelites, not Jews] who escape to the nations, to Tarshish [Spain], Pul [an island in the Nile between Egypt and Ethiopia], and Lud [Libya], to Tubal [south of the Caucasus, between the Black Sea and Araxes, probably Cappadocia, now part of Turkey], and Javan [Greece and Asia Minor], to the isles afar off [Gentile nations] that have not heard Christ's fame, neither seen His glory; and they shall declare My glory, [Jesus Christ "from whom the whole Family of God in heaven and earth is named," to the Israelites] among the Gentiles. [The glory of God or Shekinah is employed as the Lord's standard, His sign or rallying point in Israel (Isaiah 11:10-12; 49:22; 62:10, and Ezekiel 43:1-2)]. And they will bring all of your brethren as a [precious unbloody] offering to the Lord out of all nations upon horses, and in chariots, and in litters, and upon mules, and upon swift beasts, to My Holy Mountain Jerusalem, says the Lord, as the children of Israel bring an offering in a clean vessel to the house of the Lord."

These verses confirm that the Mount of Olives will cleave at the opening of the Sixth Seal overshadowed by "the sign of the Son of man coming [to Israel] in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory" (Matthew 24:30-31; Ezekiel 43:2; Isaiah 6:9-13; Zechariah 14:4; Revelation 7:2).

Psalm 17:7; Isaiah 6:10-13; 11:11-16; 13:14; 27:12-13; 49:17; 65:9-10; Jeremiah 3:12, 18; 16:15; 23:3, 8; 31:8; Ezekiel 28:24-31; 36:24; 37:14-22; 39:27-28; Joel 3:1; Hosea 6:1-3; Micah 5:3; Zephaniah 3:18-20; Zechariah 10:9-12; Matthew 24:29-31, and many other scriptures in the Old and New Testaments establish that the twelve Tribes of Israel will not return to the Land of the Covenant until the first half of Daniel's Seventieth Week. nl851.htm

"We focus on the present Truth – what Jesus is doing now. . ."
ISSN 1442-8660

Christian greetings in the precious Name of our Lord Jesus Christ; we are really very happy to have you with us once again in fellowship around God's unchanging Word.

Last week I promised by God's grace to tie the events in Russia and Ukraine back to the Bible this week. Alas, my time has been otherwise occupied. Today's main article is an important 'wake up' revealing the grooming of the image unto the beast and of the masses by a global 'squeeze' under the spirit of Laodicea from which regeneration is the sole course of escape. The world is falling apart at a quickening pace; the beheading of American journalist James Foley by the US-funded, armed and directed pseudo Islamic State, formerly ISIL, ISIS and al Qaeda, is for the purpose of hastening the 'hot stage' of the ongoing World War III wherein political Zion with political Islam will be brought into controlled conflict to disempower both.

Jesus said to the elect, "Fear not those who kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear Him who is able to destroy both soul and body in hell. Are not two sparrows sold for a farthing? Yet not one of them will fall on the ground apart from your Father's will. But the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Therefore do not fear; you are of more value than many sparrows" (Matthew 10:28-31).

Our contributing author, James Petras, is Bartle Professor (Emeritus) of Sociology at Binghamton University, New York, and author of over 62 books published in 29 languages, and over 600 articles in professional journals. Based upon seventy-odd years of US history Professor Petras demonstrates that the life of any citizen is not worth that of a single sparrow to the purpose-driven elite behind governments. The rape, decapitation and bloody slaughter of innocent civilians is planned by the 'hidden hand' seeking global hegemony with the objective of generating uninformed psychological reaction provoked by alien-controlled global media to create fear and foment hatred that will allow the pre-selected lawmakers in our Hegelian sham democracies to tighten the 'squeeze' on citizens as colonial governments of 'the City' have achieved with Orwellian legislation such as the Patriot Acts, gun control and Racial Vilification legislation and the persecution of innocent Muslims at home and abroad.

In the near future legislation will be enacted against Christian faith contrary to the unscriptural understanding of the world church system. The world is headed toward the totalitarian one world religious government Lucifer offered to Jesus if He would worship him. Professor Petras' illustrates the administrations of recent Jewish or Zionist-controlled US presidents from FDR up to but excluding Jewish President Obama (or whoever he is). Jews still want to be the chosen race, and they were chosen by the late Lord Balfour over the descendants of Abraham, Isaac and Israel. So "thanks Jews", we've taken the rapture option!

Noam Chomsky on Israel's Assault on Gaza & US Support for the Occupation

Gaza officials say at least 1,865 Palestinians, most of them civilians, died during Israel's offensive, which began on July 8th. Israel says 64 of its soldiers and three civilians have been killed. Nearly a quarter of Gaza's 1.8 million residents were displaced during the assault, which destroyed more than 3,000 homes . . . Gaza is six times as densely populated as Manhattan.

Prime Minister Netanyahu . . . basically operates under two constraints: the international constraint—namely, there are limits to the kinds of death and destruction he can inflict on Gaza—and then there's the domestic constraint, which is Israeli society doesn't tolerate a large number of combatant deaths . . . . President Obama. Each day he came out, he or one of his spokespersons, and said, "Israel has the right to defend itself." Each time he said that, it was the green light to Israel that it can continue with its terror bombing of Gaza. That went on for day after day after day, schools, mosques, hospitals targeted. But then you reached a limit. The limit was when Israel started to target the UN shelters—targeted one shelter, there was outrage; targeted a second shelter, there was outrage. And now the pressure began to build up in the United Nations. This is a United Nations—these are UN shelters. And the pressure began to build up. It reached a boiling point with the third shelter. And then Ban Ki-moon, the comatose secretary-general of the United Nations and a US puppet; even he was finally forced to say something, saying these are criminal acts. Obama was now cornered. He was looking ridiculous in the world. It was a scandal. Even the UN secretary-general, Ban Ki-moon, was now calling it a criminal act. So finally Obama, the State Department said "unacceptable," "deplorable." And frankly, it's exactly what happened in 1999 in Timor: The limits had been reached, Clinton said to the Indonesian army, "Time to end the massacre." And exactly happened now: Obama signaled to Netanyahu the terror bombing has to stop. So, Netanyahu had reached the limit of international tolerance, which basically means the United States . . .

Israel had launched a ground invasion ostensibly to stop the so-called rocket attacks, but then it turned into something different: the tunnels . . . Israel claims there were 12 tunnels that had passed through its border. There were many more tunnels between Gaza and Egypt. The first thing Sisi did when he came into power in Egypt was seal the tunnels. Did he have to destroy all of Gaza to seal the tunnels? . . . What they wanted to do was destroy the tunnel system inside Gaza, because now a . . . not very effective . . . guerrilla force had been created. And Israel, every . . . less than few years, has to mow the lawn in Gaza . . . that's the Israeli expression. You go in, and you kill a thousand people, destroy everything in sight, and Israel calls that "mowing the lawn."

Look, there were no Hamas rockets fired into Israel. There were Hamas primitive projectiles fired into Israel. Anybody with a moment's commonsense knows it was impossible—and it's already been documented by people like Mark Perry. Everyone with a moment's commonsense knows they couldn't have been firing, quote-unquote, "rockets" into Israel, for an obvious reason. After July 2013 there was a coup in Egypt. The tunnels were sealed after 2013. On the Israeli side, there was a blockade. What could get into Gaza? No military equipment can get into Gaza. No ammunition can get into Gaza. They were firing—as somebody put it in the "Bulletin of Atomic Scientists," they had a guidance system, what they were firing, said it was the equivalent of upgraded fireworks. Now, OK, you could say upgraded—it had no guidance system, but you could say, well, they had a payload, an explosive payload on the fireworks. Where is the evidence for it? . . . why hasn't there been significant damage to civilian infrastructure? How many schools were destroyed by these rockets? How many hospitals were destroyed? How many government buildings? That can't be explained by the civilian shelter system . . .

Comment: Professor Noam Chomsky on Israel's Assault on Gaza & US Support for the Occupation: It's a hideous atrocity, sadistic, vicious, murderous, totally without any credible pretext. It's another one of the periodic Israeli exercises in what they delicately call "mowing the lawn." That means shooting fish in the pond, to make sure that the animals [Goyim – Ed] stay quiet in the cage that you've constructed for them, after which you go to a period of what's called "ceasefire" . . . The only thing that can break this is if the US changes its policies, as has happened in other cases. I mentioned two: South Africa, Timor. There are others. And that's decisive. If there's going to be a change, it will crucially depend on a change in US policy here. For 40 years, the United States has been almost unilaterally backing Israeli rejectionism, refusal to entertain the overwhelming international consensus on a two-state settlement. . .

Professor Ilan Pappé: I think Israel, in 2014, made a decision that it prefers to be a racist apartheid state and not a democracy . . . US should apply the basic definitions of democracy to Israel and recognize that it is . . . providing an unconditional support for a regime that systematically abuses the human rights and the civil rights of anyone who is not a Jew between the River Jordan and the Mediterranean. If America wants clearly to support such regimes—it had done it in the past—that's OK. But if it feels that it wants to send a different message to the Middle East, then it really has a different agenda of human rights.

August 16, 2014 — Armed humanitarianism 2.0. That's our new western version of old-fashioned 19th century imperialism, now feminized by President Barack Obama's lady advisors, painted pink and accompanied by the kind of soft piano music you hear in ads for women's products.

Last week, the Obama administration latched onto the plight of Iraq's Yazidis who were being persecuted by those awful ISIS folks—just in jolly good time to divert attention from the massacre in Gaza. How handy. All three US networks and the increasingly shackled BBC were ordered to drop Gaza reporting and refocus their camera teams on the suffering Yazidis and, all of a sudden, Iraq's fleeing Christians.

This was a brilliant media ploy. The world, which was furious at the US for enabling Israel's savaging of Gaza and killing of almost 2,000 Palestinians, switched its attention to the hitherto unknown Yazidis, and to Iraqi Christians. No one in the US had ever heard of Yazidis but that was ok. Uncle Sam to the rescue.

No mention was made that Iraq's Christians had been safe and sound under President Saddam Hussein—even privileged—until President George Bush invaded and destroyed Iraq. We can expect the same fate for Syria's Christians if the protection of the Assad regime is torn away by the US-engineered uprising. We will then shed crocodile tears for Syria's Christians . . .

But what of the 1.8 million oppressed Palestinians in Gaza, cut off by Israel and Egypt from food, water, medical supplies and power? What about the millions of refugees in Syria created by western attempts to overthrow its Assad dynasty for backing Iran? What of millions of internal refugees from the Afghan and Iraq Wars? . . .

Never mind that the US armed and trained ISIS in Jordan to overthrow Syria's regime. Now they have gone rogue and must be stopped by a new humanitarian crusade . . . Full story:

War on Christians in Iraq/Syria paving Way for Clash of Civilizations

August 16, 2014 — In Newsletter 848 we detailed how ancient communities of Syrian and Iraqi Christians, their churches, and clerics have all come under fire and persecution by the US-supported insurgents that are ravaging both Syria and Iraq. Now we will explain the rationale and how this is tied to the strategic goals of the US and Israel to redraw the map of the Middle East and North Africa.

Yinon/Lewis Plan for division of Middle EastThere is an attempt to cordon off Arabs and create distinctive and sharply delineating lines. These lines of delineation are replacing the seamless lines of transition that exist in places like the Middle East, North Africa, and the Balkans. Under this scheme, there can no longer be a melding transition between societies and countries. What is being staged is the creation of an exclusively Muslim region in Syria and the Middle East, excluding the citadel of Israel, that will be in turmoil because of fighting within the Sunni majority and between the Sunni Muslims and the Alawites, Twelver (Jaffari) Shiites, Zaidi Shiites, and Ibadis . . . This Christian-Muslim divorce and project to redraw the map is why the corrupt [French Jew] Sarkozy's offer to relocate the Levantine Christians to the European Union was no gracious offer . . . Resettling the Christian communities outside the region and/or demarcating them into sectarian enclaves is meant to delineate the Arab nations along the lines of exclusively Muslim nations . . . into accordance with both the Yinon [and Lewis] Plan and the geopolitical objectives of Washington to control Eurasia by constructing a clash of supposedly different civilizations.

Comment: Benjamin Disraeli, Britain's first Jewish Prime Minister wrote, "So you see, my dear Coningsby, that the world is governed by very different personages from what is imagined by those who are not behind the scenes . . . Governments do not govern, but merely control the machinery of government, being themselves controlled by the hidden hand." Jewish President Obama supplied the sons of Allah Abrams tanks, Humvees, arms and ammunition to slaughter Iraqi Christians who like Jesus, reject Satan's offer (Matthew 4:9). The enemy of God and man rules America by its Manchurian candidate to perform their foul work behind a fanatical third party; this will incite outraged (ignorant) citizens to demand a military response, killing the US-ISIS mercenaries (for dead men tell no tales) but without a kangaroo trial as at Nuremburg. Unbeknownst to citizens this will cover the real mission which is an Arabian genocide (after the pattern of the Assyrian, Babylonian and more recent Serbian massacres directed by the same people). The devastation of these nations, which are an impede the way to Iran, Russia and China as in World War II Germany was a moral and geographical impediment to the Judaeo-Communist takeover of Europe and one totalitarian world government (Revelation 16:12).

US Operating on both sides of Syrian-Iraqi Border – providing cover for Terrorists in Syria; Fighting ISIS in Iraq

August 21, 2014 — US may attempt to arm and provide air cover for terrorists in Syria after claiming success in fighting ISIS in Iraq using Kurds.

As predicted, the 'sudden' appearance of Islamic State in Syria and Iraq (ISIS) in northern Iraq weeks ago has created the rhetorical framework within which the United States and its regional partners will attempt to militarily intervene in both Iraq and Syria. Token US airstrikes have already been underway in Iraq, and it is now revealed US special operation forces have been operating in Syria, under the guise of attempting to rescue abducted and now slain American journalist, James Wright Foley . . .

Clearly, the answer, left for readers to arrive at on their own, is that these 'successful' US airstrikes in Iraq must be carried over into Syria—where mission creep can do the rest, finally dislodging the Syrian government from power after an ongoing proxy war has failed to do so since 2011. After arming and aiding the Kurds in fighting ISIS in Iraq, the US will attempt to make a similar argument regarding the arming of terrorists in Syria and providing them direct US air support to defeat ISIS—and of course—Damascus.

It should be remembered that ISIS itself is a creation of the United States, Saudi Arabia, Israel, Qatar, and has been harbored and provided material assistance by NATO-member Turkey for years. Portrayed by various names by the Western media—ISIS, al-Nusra, the "Free Syrian Army"—in reality it is a conglomerate of Western-backed mercenary forces raised as early as 2007 to overthrow the government in Damascus and confront Iranian influence across the entire region, including in Lebanon and in Iraq.

Comment: While this is mind manipulation for the perplexed, Christians understand everything is going as planned in 1871 to ignite the 'hot stage' of World War III. And according Satan's plan this will culminate in the defeat of political Zionism in Israel, while according to God's plan clearly stated in the Old Testament it will produce a mass exodus of non-Semitic, anti-Semitic Israelis enabling the safe return of genuine Israelites for redemption in the land of their Covenant.

Ukraine Atrocities: Illegal use of White Phosphorous Donetsk Civilians

Magen David

August 19, 2014 — A report on August 15 from Russian Television alleged that the Ukrainian government the US installed in February of this year was resorting to internationally banned white phosphorous firebombs in order to help destroy the million people who lived in the now Ukrainian separatist capital of Donetsk. It lands super-hot and starts fires and burns to death almost anyone it touches.

The Ukrainian separatists are the residents in Ukraine's southeast, where Viktor Yanukovych, the Ukrainian President, was elected overwhelmingly by the people in this region in 2010. They reject the government that Obama installed, and are therefore seeking independence from it. They reject that government not so much because Obama is forcing it on them, as because that government is trying to exterminate them.

Here is raw video of this August 14 firebombing, taken from the distance . . . Since this type of thing has been going on for months, there has been a mass-evacuation of the area by the families, leaving only their fathers who are the resistance fighters, and when an OSCE official from the western "democracies" came to visit the former residents, at refugee camps in Russia, these refugees were asking why only Russia is offering them any help.

Meanwhile, Russia opens more refugee camps, and the West blocks Russia from sending aid into the Ukrainian cities that are being bombed: food, water, and medicines. But then, a news report on August 16 from Eturbonews was headlined "Alleged War Crime: White Phosphorus Used in Residential Areas of Donetsk?" and it questioned why there had been no immediate news-reports of the results of this firebombing, as it had indeed occurred . . .

Phone Terror against Prof. Robert Faurisson

Prof. Robert Faurissonm

August 18, 2014 — At 1:30am on August 15, 2014, 40 years of continual terror against the world's leading revisionist Prof. Robert Faurisson entered a new dimension when about 10 members of an armed anti-terrorist unit Brigade Anti-criminalité (BAC) stormed Faurisson's apartment because a certain Gregory Chelli alias Ulcan, a militant Jew from France, who lived some time in Israel, to escape arrest in France, had called the police claiming that Faurisson had shot his wife, giving Faurisson's private address of the scene of the crime. Because of this, police informed anti-terrorist special unit (the BAC) who then stormed the home of the professor (85) and his wife (82). On top of this psychological trauma, Chelli placed his phone call to the police on YouTube, publicly revealing Faurisson's private address so that other militant Jews could strike Faurisson in the future.

It demonstrates once again that Faurisson like all revisionists in France and elsewhere are ultimately defenseless second-class citizens supplied as a fair game for Jewish terrorists . . . I am overloaded by lawsuits, insulted on the street and in the newspapers. I'm paralyzed with pain from the beatings that I have received. Full story:

CIA MKULTRA: they intended to use Drugs for everything

CIA logo

August 12, 2014 — A CIA document was included in the transcript of the 1977 US Senate Hearings on MKULTRA, the CIA's mind-control program. The document is found in Appendix C, starting on page 166. It's simply labeled "Draft," dated 5 May 1955. It begins: "A portion of the Research and Development Program of [CIA's] TSS/Chemical Division is devoted to the discovery of the following materials and methods:"

The CIA wanted to find substances which would "promote illogical thinking and impulsiveness." Serious consideration should be given to the idea that psychiatric medications, food additives, herbicides, and industrial chemicals (like fluorides) would eventually satisfy that requirement.

The CIA wanted to find chemicals that "would produce the signs and symptoms of recognized diseases in a reversible way." This suggests many possibilities—among them the use of drugs to fabricate diseases and thereby give the false impression of germ-caused epidemics.

The CIA wanted to find drugs that would "produce amnesia." Ideal for discrediting whistleblowers, dissidents, certain political candidates, and other investigators. (Scopolamine, for example).

The CIA wanted to discover drugs which would produce "paralysis of the legs, acute anemia, etc." A way to make people decline in health as if from diseases.

The CIA wanted to develop drugs that would "alter personality structure" and thus induce a person's dependence on another person. How about dependence in general? For instance, dependence on institutions, governments?

The CIA wanted to discover chemicals that would "lower the ambition and general working efficiency of men." Sounds like a general description of the devolution of society . . .

How Christians were Hoodwinked by the Scofield Bible

Many naïve and blinded Christians have been using the Schofield Bible without also recognizing that the many footnotes attributed to Schofield, sheltered in the fancy NY City Lotus Club under the tutelage of Jewish lawyer Samuel Untermeyer (who lied to a Senate Hearing and was associated with the blackmail of adulterous President Woodrow Wilson) as well as a number of Talmudic Rabbi's, were dictated to him and the patent assigned to the Jewish owned, Oxford Press.

Provocations as Pretexts for Imperial War: Pearl Harbor to 9/11

By Prof. James Petras © 2013 all rights reserved

Wars in an imperialist democracy cannot simply be dictated by executive fiat, they require the consent of highly motivated masses who will make the human and material sacrifices. Imperialist leaders have to create a visible and highly charged emotional sense of injustice and righteousness to secure national cohesion and overcome the natural opposition to early death, destruction and disruption of civilian life and to the brutal regimentation that goes with submission to absolutist rule by the military.

The need to invent a cause is especially the case with imperialist countries because their national territory is not under threat. There is no visible occupation army oppressing the mass of the people in their everyday life. The 'enemy' does not disrupt everyday normal life—as forced conscription would and does. Under normal peaceful time, who would be willing to sacrifice their constitutional rights and their participation in civil society to subject themselves to martial rule that precludes the exercise of all their civil freedoms?

The task of imperial rulers is to fabricate a world in which the enemy to be attacked (an emerging imperial power like Japan) is portrayed as an 'invader' or an 'aggressor' in the case of revolutionary movements (Korean and Indo-Chinese communists) engaged in a civil war against an imperial client ruler or a 'terrorist conspiracy' linked to anti-imperialist, anti-colonial Islamic movements and secular states. Imperialist-democracies in the past did not need to consult or secure mass support for their expansionist wars; they relied on volunteer armies, mercenaries and colonial subjects led and directed by colonial officers. Only with the confluence of imperialism, electoral politics and total war did the need arise to secure not only consent, but also enthusiasm, to facilitate mass recruitment and obligatory conscription.

Since all US imperial wars are fought 'overseas'—far from any immediate threats, attacks or invasions—US imperial rulers have the special task of making the 'causus bellicus' immediate, 'dramatic' and self-righteously 'defensive'.

To this end US Presidents have created circumstances, fabricated incidents and acted in complicity with their enemies, to incite the bellicose temperament of the masses in favor of war.

The pretext for wars are acts of provocation which set in motion a series of counter-moves by the enemy, which are then used to justify an imperial mass military mobilization leading to and legitimizing war.

State 'provocations' require uniform mass media complicity in the lead-up to open warfare: Namely the portrayal of the imperial country as a victim of its own over-trusting innocence and good intentions. All four major US imperial wars over the past 67 years resorted to a provocation, a pretext, and systematic, high intensity mass media propaganda to mobilize the masses for war. An army of academics, journalists, mass media pundits and experts 'soften up' the public in preparation for war through demonological writing and commentary: Each and every aspect of the forthcoming military target is described as totally evil—hence 'totalitarian'—in which even the most benign policy is linked to demonic ends of the regime.

Since the 'enemy to be' lacks any saving graces and worst, since the 'totalitarian state' controls everything and everybody, no process of internal reform or change is possible. Hence the defeat of 'total evil' can only take place through 'total war'. The targeted state and people must be destroyed in order to be redeemed. In a word, the imperial democracy must regiment and convert itself into a military juggernaut based on mass complicity with imperial war crimes. The war against 'totalitarianism' becomes the vehicle for total state control for an imperial war.

In the case of the US-Japanese war, the US-Korean war, the US-Indochinese war and the post-September 11 war against an independent secular nationalist regime (Iraq) and the Islamic Afghan republic, the Executive branch (with the uniform support of the mass media and congress) provoked a hostile response from its target and fabricated a pretext as a basis for mass mobilization for prolonged and bloody wars.

US-Japan War: Provocation and Pretext for War

President Franklin Delano Roosevelt set high standards for provoking and creating a pretext for undermining majoritarian anti-war sentiment, unifying and mobilizing the country for war. Robert Stinnett, in his brilliantly documented study, Day of Deceit: The Truth About FDR and Pearl Harbor, demonstrates that Roosevelt provoked the war with Japan by deliberately following an eight-step program of harassment and embargo against Japan developed by Lt. Commander Arthur H. McCollum, head of the Far East desk of the Office of Naval Intelligence. He provides systematic documentation of US cables tracking the Japanese fleet to Pearl Harbor, clearly demonstrating that FDR knew in advance of the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor following the Japanese fleet virtually every step of the way. Even more damaging, Stinnett reveals that Admiral H.E. Kimmel, in charge of the defense of Pearl Harbor, was systematically excluded from receiving critical intelligence reports on the approaching movements of the Japanese fleet, thus preventing the defense of the US base.

The 'sneak' attack by the Japanese, which caused the death over three thousand American service men and the destruction of scores of ships and planes, successfully 'provoked' the war FDR had wanted. In the run-up to the Japanese attack, President Roosevelt ordered the implementation of Naval Intelligence's October 1940 memorandum, authored by McCollum, for eight specific measures, which amounted to acts of war including an economic embargo of Japan, the shipment of arms to Japan's adversaries, the prevention of Tokyo from securing strategic raw materials essential for its economy and the denial of port access, thus provoking a military confrontation.

To overcome massive US opposition to war, [Jewish President] Roosevelt needed a dramatic, destructive immoral act committed by Japan against a clearly 'defensive' US base to turn the pacifist US public into a cohesive, outraged, righteous war machine. Hence the Presidential decision to undermine the defense of Pearl Harbor by denying the Navy Commander in charge of its defense, Admiral Kimmel, essential intelligence about anticipated December 7, 1941 attack. The United States 'paid the price' with 2,923 Americans killed and 879 wounded, Admiral Kimmel was blamed and stood trial for dereliction of duty, but FDR got his war. The successful outcome of FDR's strategy led to a half-century of US imperial supremacy in the Asia-Pacific region. An unanticipated outcome, however, was the US and Japanese imperial defeats on the Chinese mainland and in North Korea by the victorious communist armies of national liberation.

Provocation and Pretext for the US War Against Korea

The incomplete conquest of Asia following the US defeat of Japanese imperialism, particularly the revolutionary upheavals in China, Korea and Indochina, posed a strategic challenge to US empire builders. Their massive financial and military aid to their Chinese clients failed to stem the victory of the anti-imperialist Red Armies. President Truman faced a profound dilemma—how to consolidate US imperial supremacy in the Pacific at a time of growing nationalist and communist upheavals when the vast majority of the war wearied soldiers and civilians were demanding demobilization and a return to civilian life and economy. Like Roosevelt in 1941, Truman needed to provoke a confrontation, one that could be dramatized as an offensive attack on the US (and its 'allies') and could serve as a pretext to overcome widespread opposition to another imperial war.

Truman and the Pacific military command led by General Douglas MacArthur chose the Korean peninsula as the site for detonating the war. Throughout the Japanese-Korean war, the Red guerrilla forces led the national liberation struggle against the Japanese Army and its Korean collaborators. Subsequent to the defeat of Japan the national revolt developed into a social revolutionary struggle against Korean elite collaborators with the Japanese occupiers. As Bruce Cumings documents in his classic study, The Origins of the Korean War, the internal civil war preceded and defined the conflict prior to and after the US occupation and division of Korea into a 'North' and 'South'. The political advance of the mass national movement led by the anti-imperialist communists and the discredit of the US-backed Korean collaborators undermined Truman's efforts to arbitrarily divide the country 'geographically'. In the midst of this class-based civil war, Truman and MacArthur created a provocation: They intervened, establishing a US occupation army and military bases and arming the counter-revolutionary former Japanese collaborators. The US hostile presence in a 'sea' of anti-imperialist armies and civilian social movements inevitably led to the escalation of social conflict, in which the US-backed Korean clients were losing.

As the Red Armies rapidly advanced from their strongholds in the north and joined with the mass revolutionary social movements in the South they encountered fierce repression and massacres of anti-imperialist civilians, workers and peasants, by the US armed collaborators. Facing defeat Truman declared that the civil war was really an 'invasion' by (north) Koreans against (south) Korea. Truman, like Roosevelt, was willing to sacrifice the US troops by putting them in the direct fire of the revolutionary armies in order to militarize and mobilize the US public in defense of imperial outposts in the southern Korean peninsula.

In the run-up to the US invasion of Korea, Truman, the US Congress and the mass media engaged in a massive propaganda campaign and purge of peace and anti-militarist organizations throughout US civil society. Tens of thousands of individuals lost their jobs, hundreds were jailed and hundreds of thousands were blacklisted. Trade unions and civic organizations were taken over by pro-war, pro-empire collaborators. Propaganda and purges facilitated the propagation of the danger of a new world war, in which democracy was threatened by expanding Communist totalitarianism. In reality, democracy was eroded to prepare for an imperial war to prop up a client regime and secure a military beachhead on the Asian continent.

The US invasion of Korea to prop up its tyrannical client was presented as a response to 'North' Korea invading 'South' Korea and threatening 'our' soldiers defending democracy. The heavy losses incurred by retreating US troops belied the claim of President Truman that the imperial war was merely a police action. By the end of the first year of the imperial war, public opinion turned against the war. Truman was seen as a deceptive warmonger. In 1952, the electorate elected [Jewish President] Dwight Eisenhower on his promise to end the war. An armistice was agreed to in 1953. Truman's use of military provocation to detonate a conflict with the advancing Korean revolutionary armies and then using the pretext of US forces in danger to launch a war did not succeed in securing a complete victory: The war ended in a divided Korean nation. Truman left office disgraced and derided, and the US public turned anti-war for another decade.

The US Indochinese War: [Jewish President] Johnson's Tonkin Pretext

The US invasion and war against Vietnam was a prolonged process, beginning in 1954 and continuing to the final defeat in 1975. From 1954 to 1960 the US sent military combat advisers to train the army of the corrupt, unpopular and failed collaborator regime of President Ngo Dinh Diem. With the election of President Kennedy, Washington escalated the number of military advisers, commandos (so called 'Green Berets') and the use of death squads (Plan Phoenix). Despite the intensification of the US involvement and its extensive role in directing military operations, Washington's surrogate 'South Vietnam' Army (ARNV) was losing the war to the South Vietnamese National Liberation Army (Viet Cong) and the South Vietnamese National Liberation Front (NLF), which clearly had the support of the overwhelming majority of the Vietnamese people.

Following the assassination of President Kennedy, Lyndon Johnson took over the Presidency and faced the imminent collapse of the US puppet regime and the defeat of its surrogate Vietnamese Army.

The US had two strategic objectives in launching the Vietnam War: The first involved establishing a ring of client regimes and military bases from Korea, Japan, Philippines, Taiwan, Indochina, Pakistan, Northern Burma (via the KMT opium lords and Shan secessionists) and Tibet to encircle China, engage in cross border 'commando' attacks by surrogate military forces and block China's access to its natural markets. The second strategic objective in the US invasion and occupation of Vietnam was part of its general program to destroy powerful national liberation and anti-imperialists movements in Southeast Asia, particularly in Indochina, Indonesia, the Philippines. The purpose was to consolidate client regimes, which would provide military bases, de-nationalize and privatize their raw materials sectors and provide political and military support to US empire building. The conquest of Indochina was an essential part of US empire-building in Asia. Washington calculated that by defeating the strongest Southeast Asian anti-imperialist movement and country, neighboring countries (especially Laos and Cambodia) would fall easily.

Washington faced multiple problems. In the first place, given the collapse of the surrogate 'South Vietnam' regime and army, Washington would need to massively escalate its military presence, in effect substituting its ground forces for the failed puppet forces and extend and intensify its bombing throughout North Vietnam, Cambodia and Laos. In a word convert a limited covert war into a massive publicly declared war.

The second problem was the reticence of significant sectors of the US public, especially college students (and their middle and working class parents) facing conscription, who opposed the war. The scale and scope of military commitment envisioned as necessary to win the imperial war required a pretext, a justification.

The pretext had to be such as to present the US invading armies as responding to a sneak attack by an aggressor country (North Vietnam). President Johnson, the Secretary of Defense, the US Naval and Air Force Command, the National Security Agency, acted in concert. What was referred to as the Gulf of Tonkin Incident involved a fabricated account of a pair of attacks, on August 2 and 4, 1964 off the coast of North Vietnam by naval forces of the Democratic Republic of Vietnam against two US destroyers the USS Maddox and the USS Turner Joy. Using, as a pretext, the fabricated account of the 'attacks', the US Congress almost unanimously passed the Gulf of Tonkin Resolution on August 7, 1964, which granted President Johnson full power to expand the invasion and occupation of Vietnam up to and beyond 500,000 US ground troops by 1966. The Gulf of Tonkin Resolution authorized President Johnson to conduct military operations throughout Southeast Asia without a declaration of war and gave him the freedom 'to take all necessary steps, including the use of armed force to assist any member or protocol state of the Southeast Asia Collective Defense Treaty requesting assistance in defense of freedom.'

On August 5, 1964 Lyndon Johnson went on national television and radio announcing the launching of massive waves of 'retaliatory' bombing of North Vietnamese naval facilities (Operation Pierce Arrow). In 2005, official documents released from the Pentagon, the National Security Agency and other government departments have revealed that there was no Vietnamese attack. On the contrary, according to the US Naval Institute, a program of covert CIA attacks against North Vietnam had begun in 1961 and was taken over by the Pentagon in 1964. These maritime attacks on the North Vietnamese coast by ultra-fast Norwegian-made patrol boats (purchased by the US for the South Vietnamese puppet navy and under direct US naval coordination) were an integral part of the operation. Secretary of Defense McNamara admitted to Congress that US ships were involved in attacks on the North Vietnamese coast prior to the so-called Gulf of Tonkin Incident.

So much for Johnson's claim of an 'unprovoked attack'; the key lie, however, was the claim that the USS Maddox 'retaliated' against an 'attacking' Vietnamese patrol boat. The Vietnamese patrol boats, according to NSA accounts released in 2005, were not even in the vicinity of the Maddox—they were at least 10,000 yards away and three rounds were first fired at them by the Maddox which then falsely claimed it subsequently suffered some damage from a single 14.5 mm machine gun bullet to its hull. The August 4 'Vietnamese attack' never happened. Captain John Herrick of the Turner Joy cabled that 'many reported contacts and torpedoes fired appear doubtful . . . No actual visual sightings (of North Vietnamese naval boats) by Maddox'.

The consequences of the fabrication of the Tonkin Gulf incident and provocation was to justify an escalation of war that killed 4 million people in Indochina, maimed, displaced and injured millions more, in addition to killing 58,000 US service men and wounding a half-million more in this failed effort in military-driven empire-building. Elsewhere in Asia, US empire builders consolidated their client collaborative rule: In Indonesia, which had one of the largest open Communist Party in the world, a CIA designed military coup, backed by Johnson in 1966 and led by General Suharto, murdered over one million trade unionists, peasants, progressive intellectuals, school teachers and 'communists' (and their family members).

What is striking about the US declaration of war in Vietnam is that the latter did not respond to the US-directed maritime provocations that served as a pretext for war. As a result Washington had to fabricate a Vietnamese response and then use it as the pretext for war.

The idea of fabricating military threats (the Gulf of Tonkin Incident) and then using them as pretext for the US-Vietnam war was repeated in the case of the US invasions of Iraq and Afghanistan. In fact [Jewish President] Bush's Administration policy makers, who launched the Afghan and Iraq wars, tried to prevent the publication of a report by the top Navy commander in which he recounted how the NSA distorted the intelligence reports regarding the Tonkin incident to serve the Johnson Administration's ardent desire for a pretext to war.

Provocation and Pretext: 9/11 and the Afghan-Iraq Invasions

In 2001 the vast majority of the US public was concerned over domestic matters—the downturn in the economy, corporate corruption (Enron, World Com etc.), the bursting of the 'dot-com' bubble and avoiding any new military confrontation in the Middle East. There was no sense that the US had any interest in going to war for Israel, nor launching a new war against Iraq especially an Iraq, which had been defeated and humiliated a decade earlier and was subject to brutal economic sanctions.

The US oil companies were negotiating new agreements with Gulf States and looked forward to, with some hope, a stable, peaceful Middle East, marred by Israel's savaging the Palestinians and threatening its adversaries. In the Presidential election of 2000, [Jewish candidate] George W. Bush was elected despite losing the popular vote—in large part because of electoral chicanery (with the complicity of the Supreme Court) denying the vote to blacks in Florida. Bush's bellicose rhetoric and emphasis on 'national security' resonated mainly with his Zionist advisers and the pro-Israeli lobby—otherwise, for the majority of Americans, it fell on deaf ears.

The gap between the Middle East War plans of his principle Zionist appointees in the Pentagon, the Vice President's office and the National Security Council and the general US public's concern with domestic issues was striking. No amount of Zionist authored position papers, anti-Arab, anti-Muslim rhetoric and theatrics, emanating from Israel and its US based spokespeople, were making any significant impact on the US public. There was widespread disbelief that there was an imminent threat to US security through a catastrophic terrorist attack—which is defined as an attack using chemical, biological or nuclear weapons of mass destruction. The US public believed Israel's Middle East wars and their unconditional US lobbyists promotion for direct US involvement were not part of their lives nor in the country's interest.

The key challenge for the militarists in the Bush Administration was how to bring the US public around to support the new Middle East war agenda, in the absence of any visible, credible and immediate threat from any sovereign Middle Eastern country.

The Zionists were well placed in all the key government positions to launch a worldwide offensive war. They had clear ideas of the countries to target (Middle East adversaries of Israel). They had defined the ideology ("the war on terror," "preventive defense"). They projected a sequence of wars. They linked their Middle East war strategy to a global military offensive against all governments, movements and leaders who opposed US military-driven empire building. What they needed was to coordinate the elite into actually facilitating a 'catastrophic terrorist incident' that could trigger the implementation of their publicly stated and defended new world war.

The key to the success of the operation was to encourage terrorists and to facilitate calculated and systematic 'neglect'—to deliberately marginalize intelligence agents and agency reports that identified the terrorists, their plans and methods. In the subsequent investigatory hearings, it was necessary to foster the image of 'neglect', bureaucratic ineptness and security failures in order to cover up Administration complicity in the terrorists' success. An absolutely essential element in mobilizing massive and unquestioning support for the launching of a world war of conquest and destruction centered in Muslim and Arab countries and people was a 'catastrophic event' that could be linked to the latter.

After the initial shock of 9/11 and the mass media propaganda blitz saturating every household, questions began to be raised by critics about the run-up to the event, especially when reports began to circulate from domestic and overseas intelligence agencies that US policy makers were clearly informed of preparations for a terrorist attack. After many months of sustained public pressure, [Jewish] President Bush finally named an investigatory commission on 9/11, headed by former politicians and government officials. Philip Zelikow, an academic and former government official and prominent advocate of 'preventative defense' (the offensive war policies promoted by the Zionist militants in the government) was named executive director to conduct and write the official '9-11 Commission Report'. Zelikow was privy to the need for a pretext, like 9/11, for launching the permanent global warfare, which he had advocated. With a prescience, which could only come from an insider to the fabrication leading to war, he had written: "Like Pearl Harbor, this event would divide our past and future into a before and after. The United States (sic) might respond with draconian measures, scaling back civil liberties, allowing wider surveillance of citizens, detention of suspects and use of deadly force (torture)", (see Catastrophic Terrorism—Tackling the New Dangers, co-authored by Philip Zelikow and published by Foreign Affairs in 1998).

Zelikow directed the commission report, which exonerated the administration of any knowledge and complicity in 9/11, but convinced few Americans outside of the mass media and Congress. Polls conducted in the summer of 2003 on the findings of the Commission proceedings and its conclusions found that a majority of the American public expressed a high level of distrust and rejection—especially among New Yorkers. The general public suspected Government complicity, especially when it was revealed that Zelikow conferred with key figures under investigation, Vice President Cheney and Presidential 'Guru' Karl Rove. In response to skeptical citizens, Zelikow went on an insane rage, calling the sceptics germs or 'pathogens' whose 'infection' needed to be contained. With language reminiscent of a Hitlerian Social Darwinist diatribe, he referred to criticisms of the Commission cover up as 'a bacteria (that) can sicken the larger body (of public opinion)'. Clearly Zelikow's pseudoscientific rant reflects the fear and loathing he feels for those who implicated him with a militarist regime, which fabricated a pretext for a catastrophic war for Zelikow's favorite state—Israel.

Throughout the 1990's the US and Israeli military-driven empire building took on an added virulence: Israel dispossessed Palestinians and extended its colonial settlements. Bush, Senior invaded Iraq and systematically destroyed Iraqi's military and civil economic infrastructure and fomented an ethnically cleansed Kurdish client state in the north. Like his predecessor Ronald Reagan, President George H.W. Bush, Senior backed anti-communist Islamic irregulars in their conquest of Afghanistan via their 'holy wars' against a leftist secular nationalist regime. At the same time Bush, Senior attempted to 'balance' military empire building with expanding the US economic empire, by not occupying Iraq and unsuccessfully trying to restrain Israeli colonial settlements in the West Bank.

With the rise of Clinton, all restraints on military-driven empire building were thrown over: [Jewish President] Clinton provoked a major Balkan war, viciously bombing and dismembering Yugoslavia, periodically bombing Iraq and extending and expanding US military bases in the Gulf States. He bombed the largest pharmaceutical factory in Sudan, invaded Somalia and intensified a criminal economic boycott of Iraq leading to the death of an estimated 500,000 children. Within the Clinton regime, several liberal pro-Israel Zionists joined the military-driven empire builders in the key policy making positions. Israeli military expansion and repression reached new heights as US-financed colonial Jewish settlers and heavily armed Israeli military forces slaughtered unarmed Palestinian teenagers protesting the Israeli presence in the Occupied Territories during the First Intifada. In other words, Washington extended its military penetration and occupation deeper into Arab countries and societies, discrediting and weakening the hold of its client puppet regimes over their people.

The US ended military support for the armed Islamic anti-communists in Afghanistan once they had served US policy goals by destroying the Soviet backed secular regime (slaughtering thousands of school teachers in the process). As a consequence of US-financing, there was a vast, loose network of well-trained Islamic fighters available for combat against other target regimes. Many were flown by the Clinton regime into Bosnia where Islamic fighters fought a surrogate separatist war against the secular and socialist central government of Yugoslavia. Others were funded to destabilize Iran and Iraq. They were seen in Washington as shock troops for future US military conquests. Nevertheless Clinton's imperial coalition of Israeli colonialists, armed Islamic mercenary fighters, Kurdish and Chechen separatists broke up as Washington and Israel advanced toward war and conquest of Arab and Muslim states and the US spread its military presence in Saudi Arabia, Kuwait and the Gulf States.

Military-driven empire building against existing nation-states was not an easy sell to the US public or to the market-driven empire builders of Western Europe and Japan and the newly emerging market-driven empire builders of China and Russia. Washington needed to create conditions for a major provocation, which would overcome or weaken the resistance and opposition of rival economic empire builders. More particularly, Washington needed a 'catastrophic event' to 'turn around' domestic public opinion, which had opposed the first Gulf War and subsequently supported the rapid withdrawal of US troops from Iraq in 1990.

The events, which took place on September 11, 2001, served the purpose of American and Israeli military-driven empire builders. The destruction of the World Trade Center buildings and the deaths of nearly 3,000 civilians, served as a pretext for a series of colonial wars, colonial occupations, and global terrorist activities, and secured the unanimous support of the US Congress and triggered an intense global mass media propaganda campaign for war.

The Politics of Military Provocations

Ten years of starving 23 million Iraqi Arabs under the Clinton regime's economic boycott, interspersed with intense bombing was a major provocation to Arab communities and citizens around the world. Supporting Israel's systematic dispossession of Palestinians from their lands, interspersed with encroachment on the Islamic holy sites in Jerusalem was a major provocation, which detonated scores of suicide bomb attacks in retaliation. The construction and operation of US military bases in Saudi Arabia, home of the Islamic holy city of Mecca, was a provocation to millions of believers and practicing Muslims. The US and Israeli attack and occupation of southern Lebanon and the killing of 17,000 Lebanese and Palestinians were a provocation to Arabs.

Ruled by pusillanimous Arab regimes servile to US interests, impotent to respond to Israeli brutality against Palestinians, Arabs and devout Muslim citizens were constantly pushed by the Bush and especially Clinton regime to respond to their continued provocations. Against the vast disproportion in fire-power between the advanced weaponry of the US and Israeli occupation forces (the Apache helicopter gun ships, the 5,000 pound bombs, the killer drones, the armored carriers, the cluster bombs, Napalm and missiles) the secular Arab and Islamic resistance had only light weaponry consisting of automatic rifles, rocket propelled grenades, short-range and inaccurate Katusha missiles and machine guns. The only weapon they possessed in abundance to retaliate was the suicidal 'human bombs'.

Up to 9/11, US imperial wars against Arab and Islamic populations were carried out in the targeted and occupied lands where the great mass of Arab people lived, worked and enjoyed shared lives. In other words, all (and for Israel most) of the destructive effects of their wars (the killings, home and neighborhood destruction and kinship losses) were products of US and Israeli offensive wars, seemingly immune to retaliatory action on their own territory.

September 11, 2001 was the first successful [falsely alleged] large-scale Arab-Islamic offensive attack on US territory in this prolonged, one-sided war. The precise timing of 9/11 coincides with the highly visible takeover of US Middle East war policy by extremist Zionists in the top positions of the Pentagon, the White House and National Security Council and their dominance of Congressional Middle East policies. Arab and Islamic anti-imperialists were convinced that military-driven empire builders were readying for a frontal assault on all the remaining centers of opposition to Zionism in the Middle East, i.e. Iraq, Iran, Syria, Southern Lebanon, the West Bank, Gaza, as well as in Afghanistan in South Asia and Sudan and Somalia in North-East Africa.

This offensive war scenario had been already spelled out by the American Zionist policy elite headed by Richard Pearl for the Israeli Institute for Advanced Strategic and Political Studies in a policy document, entitled A Clean Break: A New Strategy for Securing the Realm. This was prepared in 1996 for far-right Israeli Prime Minister Bibi Netanyahu prior to his taking office.

On September 28, 2000, despite the warnings of many observers, the infamous author of the massacre of Palestinian refugees in Lebanon, General Ariel Sharon profaned the Al Aqsa Mosque with his huge military entourage—a deliberate religious provocation that guaranteed Sharon's election as Prime Minister from the far right Likud Party. This led to the Second Intifada and the savage response of the Israelis. Washington's total support of Sharon merely reinforced the worldwide belief among Arabs that the 'Zionist Solution' of massive ethnic purges was on Washington's agenda.

The pivotal group linking US military-driven empire builders with their counterparts in Israel was the major influential Zionist public policy group promoting what they dubbed the 'Project for a New American Century" (PNAC). In 1998 they set out this detailed military-driven road map to US world domination, which just happened to focus on the Middle East and just happened to coincide exactly with Tel Aviv's vision of a US-Israel dominated Middle East. In 2000 the PNAC Zionist ideologues published a strategy paper 'Rebuilding America's Defenses', which laid down the exact guidelines which incoming Zionist policy makers in the top spheres of the Pentagon and White House would follow. PNAC directives included establishing forward military bases in the Middle East, increasing military spending from 3% to 4% of GNP, a military attack to overthrow Saddam Hussein in Iraq, and military confrontation with Iran using the pretext of the threats of 'weapons of mass destruction'.

The PNAC agenda could not advance without a catastrophic 'Pearl Harbor' type of event, as US military-driven empire builders, Israelis and US Zionist policy makers recognized early on. The deliberate refusal by the White House and its subordinate 16 intelligence agencies and the Justice Department to follow up precise reports of terrorist entry, training, financing and action plans was a case of deliberate 'negligence': The purpose was to allow the attack to take place and then to immediately launch the biggest wave of military invasions and state terrorist activities since the end of the Indochina War.

Israel, which had identified and kept close surveillance of the terrorists, insured that the action would proceed without any interruption. During the 9/11 attacks, its agents even had the presumption to video and photograph the exploding towers, while dancing in wild celebration, anticipating Washington's move toward Israel's militarist Middle East strategy.

Military-Driven Empire Building: The Zionist Connection

Militaristic empire building preceded the rise to power of the Zionist Power Configuration (ZPC) in the George W. Bush Administration. The pursuit of it after 9/11 was a joint effort between the ZPC and long-standing US militarists, like Rumsfeld and Cheney. The provocations against Arabs and Muslims leading up to the attacks were induced by both the US and Israel. The current implementation of the militarist strategy toward Iran is another joint effort of Zionist and US militarists.

What the Zionists did provide, which the US militarists lacked, was an organized mass-based lobby with financing, propagandists and political backing for the war. The principle government ideologues, media 'experts', spokespeople, academics, speechwriters and advisers for the war were largely drawn from the ranks of US Zionism. The most prejudicial aspects of the Zionist role were in the implementation of war policy, namely the systematic destruction and dismantling of the Iraqi state. Zionist policymakers promoted the US military occupation and supported a massive US military build-up in the region for sequential wars against Iran, Syria and other adversaries of Israeli expansion.

In pursuit of military–driven empire building in accord with Israel's own version, the Zionist militarists in the US government exceeded their pre-9/11 expectations, raising military spending from 3% of GNP in 2000 to 6% in2008, growing at a rate of 13% per year during their ascendancy from 2001-2008. As a result they raised the US budget deficit to over $10 trillion dollars by 2010, double the 1997 deficit, and driving the US economy and its economic empire toward bankruptcy.

The Zionist American policy makers were blind to the dire economic consequences for US overseas economic interests because their main strategic consideration was whether US policy enhanced Israel's military dominance in the Middle East. The cost (in blood and treasure) of using the US to militarily destroy Israel's adversaries was of no concern.

To pursue the Zionist-US military-driven imperial project of a New Order in the Middle East, Washington needed to mobilize the entire population for a series of sequential wars against the anti-imperialist, anti-Israeli countries of the Middle East and beyond. To target the multitude of Israeli adversaries, American Zionists invented the notion of a 'Global War on Terrorism'. The existing climate of national and international opinion was decidedly hostile to the idea of fighting sequential wars, let alone blindly following zealous Zionist extremists. Sacrificing American lives for Israeli power and the Zionist fantasy of a US-Israeli 'Co-Prosperity Sphere' dominating the Middle East could not win public backing in the US, let alone in the rest of the world.

Top policymakers, especially the Zionist elite, nurtured the notion of a fabricated pretext—an event which would shock the US public and Congress into a fearful, irrational and bellicose mood, willing to sacrifice lives and democratic freedoms. To rally the US public behind a military-driven imperial project of invasion and occupation in the Middle East required 'another Pearl Harbor'.

The Terror Bombing: White House and Zionist Complicity

Every level of the US government was aware that Arab extremists were planning a spectacular armed attack in the United States. The FBI and the CIA had their names and addresses; the President's National Security Adviser Condoleeza Rice publicly admitted that the Executive branch knew that a terrorist hijacking would occur . . . only they had expected, she claimed, a 'traditional hijacking' and not the use of 'airliners as missiles'. The Attorney General John Ashcroft was acutely aware and refused to fly on commercial airliners. Scores of Israeli spies were living blocks away from some of the hijackers in Florida, informing headquarters [in Israel] on their movements. Overseas intelligence agencies, notably in Germany, Russia, Israel and Egypt claimed to have provided information to their US counterparts on the 'terrorist plot'. The President's office, the CIA, the Defense Intelligence Agency and the FBI allowed the attackers to prepare their plans, secure funding, proceed to the airports, board the planes and carry out their attacks . . . all carrying US visas (mostly issued in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia—once a prominent site for processing Arabs to fight in Afghanistan) and with 'pilots' who were US-trained. As soon as the terrorists took control of the flights, the Air Force was notified of the hijacking but top leaders 'inexplicably' delayed moves to intercept the planes allowing the attackers to reach their objectives . . . the World Trade Center and the Pentagon.

The military-driven empire builders and their Zionist allies immediately seized the pretext of a single military retaliatory attack by non-state terrorists to launch a worldwide military offensive against a laundry list of sovereign nations. Within 24 hours, ultra-Zionist Senator Joseph Lieberman, in a prepared speech, called for the US to attack' Iran, Iraq and Syria' without any proof that any of these nations, all full members of the United Nations, were behind the hijackings. President Bush declared a 'Global War on Terror' (GWOT) and launched the invasion of Afghanistan and approved a program of extraterritorial, extrajudicial assassinations, kidnappings and torture throughout the world. Clearly the Administration put into operation a war strategy, publicly advocated and prepared by Zionist ideologues long before 9/11. The President secured nearly unanimous support from Congress for the first Patriot Act, suspending fundamental democratic freedoms at home. He demanded that US client-states and allies implement their own versions of authoritarian anti-terrorist laws to persecute, prosecute and jail any and all opponents of US and Israeli empire building in the Middle East and elsewhere. In other words, September 11, 2001 became the pretext for a virulent and sustained effort to create a new world order centered on a US military-driven empire and a Middle East built around Israeli supremacy.

Provocations and Pretexts: the Israeli-US War Against Iran

The long, unending, costly and losing wars in Iraq and Afghanistan undermined international and national support for the Zionist-promoted New American Century project. US militarists and their advisers and ideologues needed to create a new pretext for the US plans to subdue the Middle East and especially to attack Iran. They turned their propaganda campaign on Iran's legal non-military nuclear energy program and fabricated evidence of Iran's direct military involvement in supporting the Iraqi resistance to US occupation. Without proof they claimed Iran had supplied the weapons, which bombed the American 'Green Zone' in Baghdad. The Israeli lobby argued that Iranian training and weapons had been instrumental in defeating the American-backed Iraqi mercenaries in the major southern city of Basra. Top Zionists in the Treasury Department have organized a worldwide economic boycott against Iran. Israel has secured the support of top Democrat and Republican Congressional leaders for a military attack on Iran. But is Iran's existence a sufficient pretext or will a 'catastrophic' incident be necessary?

Conclusion: Provocations and Imperial Wars:

'Behind every imperial war there is a Great Lie'. One of the most important political implications of our discussion of the US government's resort to provocations and deception to launch imperial wars is that the vast majority of the American people are opposed to overseas wars. Government lies at the service of military interventions are necessary to undermine the American public's preference for a foreign policy based on respect for self-determination of nations. The second implication however is that the peaceful sentiments of the majority can be quickly overturned by the political elite through deception and provocations amplified and dramatized through their constant repetition through the unified voice of the mass media (see Protocol 12:2). In other words, peaceful American citizens can be transformed into irrational chauvinist militarists through the 'propaganda of the deed' where executive authority disguises its own acts of imperial attacks as 'defensive' and its opponent's retaliation as unprovoked aggression against a 'peace loving' United States.

All of the executive provocations and deceptions are formulated by a Presidential elite but willingly executed by a chain of command involving anywhere from dozens to hundreds of operatives, most of whom knowingly participate in deceiving the public, but rarely ever unmask the illegal project either out of fear, loyalty or blind obedience.

The notion, put forward by upholders of the 'integrity' of the war policy, that given such a large number of participants, 'someone' would have 'leaked' the deception, the systematic provocations and the manipulation of the public, has been demonstrated to be false. At the time of the 'provocation' and the declaration of 'war' when Congress unanimously approved 'Presidential Authority' to use force, few if any writers or journalists have ever raised serious questions: Executives operating under the mantle of 'defending a peaceful country' from 'unprovoked treacherous enemies' have always secured the complicity or silence of peacetime critics who choose to bury their reservations and investigations in a time of 'threats to national security.' Few academics, writers or journalists are willing to risk their professional standing, when all the mass media editors and owners, political leaders and their own professional cohorts froth over 'standing united with our President in times of unparalleled mortal threat to the nation—as happened in 1941, 1950, 1964 and 2001.

With the exception of World War Two, each of the subsequent wars led to profound civilian political disillusion and even rejection of the fabrications that initially justified the war. Popular disenchantment with war led to a temporary rejection of militarism . . . until the next 'unprovoked' attack and call to arms. Even in the case of the Second World War there was massive civilian outrage against a large standing army and even large-scale military demonstrations at the end of the war, demanding the GI's return to civilian life. The demobilization occurred despite Government efforts to consolidate a new empire based on occupation of countries in Europe and Asia in the wake of Germany and Japan's defeat.

The underlying structural reality, which has driven American Presidents to fabricate pretexts for wars, is informed by a military-driven conception of empire. Why did Roosevelt not answer the Japanese imperial economic challenge by increasing the US economic capacity to compete and produce more efficiently instead of supporting a provocative boycott called by the decaying European colonial powers in Asia? Was it the case that, under capitalism, a depression-ridden, stagnant economy and idle work force could only be mobilized by the state for a military confrontation?

In the case of the US-Korean War, could not the most powerful post-World War economy look toward exercising influence via investments with a poor, semi-agrarian, devastated, but unified, Korea, as it was able to do in Germany, Japan and elsewhere after the war?

Twenty years after spending hundreds of billions of dollars and suffering 500,000 dead and wounded to conquer Indochina, European, Asian and US capital entered Vietnam peacefully on the invitation of its government, hastening its integration into the world capitalist market via investments and trade.

It is clear that Plato's not-so 'noble lie', as practiced by America's Imperial Presidents, to deceive their citizens for 'higher purposes' has led to the use of bloody and cruel means to achieve grotesque and ignoble ends.

The repetition of fabricated pretexts to engage in imperial wars is embedded in the dual structure of the US political system, a military-driven empire and a broad-based electorate. To pursue the former it is essential to deceive the latter. Deception is facilitated by the control of mass media whose war propaganda enters every home, office and classroom with the same centrally determined message (see Protocol 2:3-4). The mass media undermine what remains of alternative information flowing from primary and secondary opinion leaders in the communities and erode personal values and ethics. While military-driven empire building has resulted in the killing of millions and the displacement of tens of millions, market-driven empire building imposes its own levy in terms of massive exploitation of labor, land and livelihoods.

As has been the case in the past, when the lies of empire wear thin, public disenchantment sets in, and the repeated cries of 'new threats' fail to mobilize opinion. As the continued loss of life and the socio-economic costs erodes the conditions of everyday life, mass media propaganda loses its effectiveness and political opportunities appear. As after WWII, Korea, Indochina and today with Iraq and Afghanistan, a window of political opportunity opens. Mass majorities demand changes in policy, perhaps in structures and certainly an end to the war. Possibilities open for public debate over the imperial system, which constantly reverts to wars and lies and provocations that justify them.


Our telegraphic survey of imperial policy-making refutes the conventional and commonplace notion that the decision making process leading up to war is open, public and carried out in accordance with the constitutional rules of a democracy. On the contrary, as is commonplace in many spheres of political, economic, social and cultural life, but especially in questions of war and peace, the key decisions are taken by a small Presidential elite behind closed doors, out of sight and without consultation and in violation of constitutional provisions. The process of provoking conflict in pursuit of military goals is never raised before the electorate. There are never investigations by independent investigatory committees.

The closed nature of the decision making process does not detract from the fact that these decisions were 'public' in that they were taken by elected and non-elected public officials in public institutions and directly affected the public. The problem is that the public was kept in the dark about the larger imperial interests that were at stake and the deception that would induce them to blindly submit to the decisions for war. Defenders of the political system are unwilling to confront the authoritarian procedures, the elite fabrications and the unstated imperial goals. Apologists of the military-driven empire builders resort to irrational and pejorative labeling of the critics and skeptics as 'conspiracy theorists'. For the most part, prestigious academics conform closely to the rhetoric and fabricated claims of the executors of imperial policy.

Everywhere and at all times groups, organizations and leaders meet in closed meetings, before going 'public'. A minority of policymakers or advocates meet, debate and outline procedures and devise tactics to secure decisions at the 'official' meeting. This common practice takes place when any vital decisions are to be taken whether it is at local school boards or in White House meetings. To label the account of small groups of public officials meeting and taking vital decisions in 'closed' public meetings (where agendas, procedures and decisions are made prior to formal 'open' public meetings) as 'conspiracy theorizing' is to deny the normal way in which politics operate. In a word, the 'conspiracy' labelers are either ignorant of the most elementary procedures of politics or they are conscious of their role in covering up the abuses of power of today's state terror merchants.

Professor Zelikow—Where do we go from here?

The key figure in and around the Bush Administration who actively promoted a 'new Pearl Harbor' and was at least in part responsible for the policy of complicity with the 9/11 terrorists was Philip Zelikow. Zelikow, a prominent Israel-Firster, is a government academic, whose expertise was in the nebulous area of 'catastrophic terrorism'—events which enabled US political leaders to concentrate executive powers and violate constitutional freedoms in pursuit of offensive imperial wars and in developing the 'public myth'. Philip Shenon's The Commission: The Uncensored History of the 9/11 Investigation pinpoints Zelikow's strategic role in the Bush Administration in the lead up to 9/11, the period of 'complicit neglect', in its aftermath, the offensive global war period, and in the government's cover-up of its complicity in the terror attack.

Prior to 9/11 Zelikow provided a 'blueprint' for the process of an executive seizing extreme power for global warfare. He outlined a sequence in which a 'catastrophic terrorist event' could facilitate the absolute concentration of power, followed by the launching of offensive wars for Israel (as he publicly admitted). In the run-up to 9/11 and the multiple wars, he served as a member of National Security Adviser Condoleeza Rice's National Security Council transition team (2000-2001), which had intimate knowledge of terrorist plans to seize US commercial flights, as Rice herself publicly admitted ('conventional hijackings' was her term). Zelikow was instrumental in demoting and disabling the counter-terrorism expert Richard Clark from the National Security Council, the one agency tracking the terrorist operation. Between 2001-2003, Zelikow was a member of the President's Foreign Intelligence Advisory Board. This was the agency, which had failed to follow-up and failed to pursue the key intelligence reports identifying terrorist plans. Zelikow, after playing a major role in undermining intelligence efforts to prevent the terrorist attack, became the principle author of the 2002 National Security Strategy of the United States, which prescribed Bush's policy of military invasion of Iraq and targeted Syria, Iran, Hezbollah, Hamas and other independent Arab and Muslim countries and political entities. Zelikow's 'National Security Strategy' paper was the most influential directive shaping the global state terrorist policies of the Bush regime. It also brought US war policies in the closest alignment with the regional military aspirations of the Israeli state since the founding of Israel. Indeed, this was why the former Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu stated at Bar Ilan University that the 9/11 attack and the US invasion of Iraq were 'good for Israel' (see Haaretz, April 16, 2008).

Finally Zelikow, as Bush's personal appointee as the Executive Director of the 9/11 Commission, coordinated the cover-up of the Administration policy of complicity in 9/11 with the Vice President's office. While Zelikow is not considered an academic heavyweight, his ubiquitous role in the design, execution and cover-up of the world-shattering events surrounding 9/11 and its aftermath mark him as one of the most dangerous and destructive political 'influentials' in the shaping and launching of Washington's past, present and future catastrophic wars (From James Petras, Zionism and US Militarism, Clarity Press, 2008).
