Have a swell day!
Have a swell day!
As I awoke this Sunday morning, the carnage continues in Syria. In protest
I re-post my thoughts on the massacre there.
I am no Biblical scholar, but, I sense that the End of Days foretold in the New Testament is upon us . We are told that in the days near Jesus’ Second Coming, “there will be war and rumors of war.” “Their will be signs in the heavens.” Look at your news sources and see what is going on in the world: Fighting, unusual phenomena in the weather and other unseasonal manifestations. I awoke this morning to learn that in Syria, President Bashar al-Assad is using activists as human shields, tying them to his tanks as he wages war on his people. Everyday there are reports of the number of innocents killed by the armed forces of Syria. Correspondents and journalists are prevented from entering Syria to prevent them from reporting on the truth of genocide there.
Why has the Arab League not acted? Have they no teeth? One man running from harm, under attack in Syria, said, “Where is America?” It is time for Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, Egypt and other countries in the world band together as NATO did to save the people of Libya. Nations in the area have bought weapons of war from us and others. It is time to use those weapons to save the vulnerable people of Syria. Oil rich countries cannot just sit on their profits while the world goes to hell! The United States is trying to get its house in order. While some regard the US as the “Policemen of the World,” we are not. We don’t have the resources to right all the wrong in the world. Witness the vote in the Security Council the other day when Russia and China vetoed action by the United Nations to help the people of Syria. Any resolution by the General Assembly cannot help those suffering in Syria under artillery fire from their government. The Arab Spring must not die! But, the Middle East cannot curse the West and then look to us to save them. (IMHO). But, friends are concerned about the welfare of each other. As we see the fighting and dying in Syria, we ask ourselves, “Who are our friends?” Must we borrow money to fight a war in Syria? Perhaps the powers-that-be in the Middle East would pay the United States to police their sector of the world(?) Whatever they do, countries of the Middle East must act to restore peace to their region. Genocide must not win! Is fighting for liberty and democracy for all the people of the world God’s mission for the United States of America and her allies? Must our youth shed their precious blood in the darkest theaters of war to assure global peace and freedom? Is this our cross to bear? Is this our role in end of days? Heavenly Father, we pray that You will send Jesus soon to end our travail and take us to Glory!
Let the Fires of Liberty Burst Forth!

“The Iranian government, through a website proxy, has laid out the legal and religious justification for the destruction of Israeland the slaughter of its people. …Calling Israel a danger to Islam, the conservative website Alef, with ties to Iran’s supreme leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, said the opportunity must not be lost to remove “this corrupting material. It is a ‘jurisprudential justification’ to kill all the Jews and annihilate Israel, and in that, the Islamic government of Iran must take the helm.”
The article, written by Alireza Forghani, a conservative analyst and a strategy specialist in Khamenei’s camp, now is being run on most state-owned conservative sites, including the Revolutionary Guards’ Fars News Agency, showing that the regime endorses this doctrine.” Read the original article at World Net Daily
From one end of the Muslim world to the other, Christians are being murdered for their faith. In January 2012 alone, the Nigerian group Boko Haram, whose stated goal is to kill all Christians in that country, has been responsible for 54 deaths. In this week’s Newsweek, Ayaan Hirsi Ali reports on a war the media has been reticent to report—and says the fate of all minorities is at stake.
