Israel Backs Russia’s Avowal That Syrian Chemical Arms Are Secure … “For Now”


.

“At the moment, [Syria’s] chemical weapons are under control,” said senior Israeli defense official Amos Gilad Sunday, Dec. 23, echoing the statement by Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov Saturday that “the Syrian government has consolidated its chemical weapons in one or two locations amid a rebel onslaught and they are under control for the time being.”

Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu then said enigmatically: “We are facing a near possibility of far-reaching changes in the Syrian regime with ramifications for the sensitive weaponry [chemical, biological] present there.”

Like Lavrov’s comments, neither Israeli statement accounted for the sudden reversal of events in the last 48 hours in the turbulent history of its northern neighbor. As recently as Friday, Bashar Assad’s Scuds and warplanes were battling the rebels to keep his big chemical and biological warfare arsenals at the Al Safira complex near Aleppo out of the hands of al Qaeda adherents who were moving in fast on this target. Twenty four hours later, the Russian foreign minister asserted the weapons were secure.

Military sources disclose that the battle of al Safira was abruptly interrupted by a foreign military force which stepped in and stopped the fighting in order to commandeer the chemical and biological stocks.  This force has been identified as a Russian special unit.

The entire episode is covered in a heavy blanket of secrecy, imposed from Moscow, Washington, Jerusalem and Damascus. They are using the public preoccupation with the holiday period in the West to keep it dark. However, from the scraps of evidence available, it is transpires that the foreign special unit reaching al Safira gave both sides, the Syrian army and the rebels, an ultimatum to hold their fire until the arsenals were removed, or else this special unit would mete out crushing punishment.

Since then, the Syrian army and rebels do not appear to have resumed fighting and it is not clear which side remains in control of the al Safira military complex.

One of the many enigmas surrounding this episode is whether the Russians carried out their operation for the capture of Assad’s WMD alone, or in conjunction with the US and Israel. And whether this cooperation extended up to and including implementation, or was confined to the intelligence and preparatory stages.

Amos Gilad’s comment points to a measure of international cooperation.  Furthermore, it is not clear whether the Syrian ruler gave permission for the removal of his unconventional weapons out of the reach of the rebels. Neither is their destination known.  And most of all, what makes Russian and Israeli officials so sure that they are in safe hands?

In his statement Saturday, Lavrov divulged that it had been “consolidated in one or two places” and that “Russian military advisers… kept close watch over [Syria’s] chemical arsenal.”

The Israeli defense official was in rare tune with Moscow on the fate of the Syrian ruler. He asserted that the civil war between Assad and opposition forces fighting to topple him had become deadlocked, but that the Syrian leader showed no signs of heeding international calls to step down.

“Suppose he (Assad) does leave, there could be chaos … in the Middle East you never know who will come instead. We need to stay level-headed; the entire world is dealing with this (another reference to multinational action in Syria). At the moment, chemical weapons are under control, despite the fact that President Bashar al-Assad has lost control of parts of the country,” Gilad said.

Assad’s Deadly Agenda: First, Chemicals. Next, Powerful Russian Hypersonic Ballistic Missile


Russia Makes A Grave Move Toward WW3
Missile Crisis 2.0 In The Making

In Response To American ‘Patriot’ Missiles in Turkey
Moscow Has Upped the Ante Vigorously Against the West
And the West Has No Viable Answer Against It

The Russians have just given Syrian tyrant Bashar Assad
his most sophisticated weapon thus far – the Iskander cruise missile,
which has a hypersonic speed of 1.3 miles per second.

.

On Dec. 5, the first American, Dutch and German Patriot missiles landed in Turkey. Within hours, three Russian warships had put into Syria’s Tartus port – the Novocherkassk and Saratov landing craft and the MB-304 supply vessel. Aboard were 300 marines. But there were not only fighting men. They also delivered a fearsome weapon for Assad’s army and a game changer in the Syrian conflict: 24 Iskander 9K720 (NATO codenamed SS-26 Stone) cruise missile systems, designed for theater level conflicts.

While NATO unpacked the Patriots in Turkey, a dozen mobile batteries – each carrying a pair of Iskander missiles – were fixed into position opposite Turkey, and another dozen, opposite Jordan and Israel. At all their stations, the Russian missiles are pointed at US military targets.

So, while the West was gripped with alarm over Assad’s poison Sarin gas shells and bombs and gearing up for missile attacks on Turkey, the Russians were injecting into the Syrian war field the most sophisticated weapon of death thus far.

The West and Israel have no answer for the Iskander’s hypersonic speed of more than 1.3 miles per second with a 280 mile-range and a 1,500-pound warhead which destroys targets with pinpoint accuracy. It is also nuclear-capable.

Russian President Vladimir Putin promised two US presidents, George W. Bush and Barack Obama, not to let the Iskander reach the hands of Syria or Iran.

Moscow has no illusions that once in Syria, the lethal cruise missile will pretty soon reach Iran’s supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei.

Saturday, Dec. 15, Iran’s chief of staff Gen. Hassan Firouzabadi warned that the Patriot missiles in Turkey portended world war. He was referring to the missile-versus-missile face-off in Syria .

 By giving Assad the Iskanders, Moscow has plumped itself squarely in the Tehran-Damascus-Hizballah camp, while on the contrary president Obama is carefully holding back from an unreserved commitment to the Syrian insurgency.

Some Western circles see Russia’s military intervention in the Syrian conflict as presaging Bashar Assad’s early downfall. The reality is that before he falls, the Syria ruler is getting ready for desperate measures – first by unleashing chemical warfare and, after that, using the deadly Iskanders for a last throw against his enemies.

And then, what? As it says in Isaiah 17:1,

“The burden of Damascus:  Behold, Damascus is taken away from being a city, and it will be a ruinous heap.”

The world is on the verge of the greatest cataclysm since the Flood of Noach; but most people, imbued by shear fear and irresponsibility, pretend to ignore what is constantly clearly evident all over the news: Worldwide society is rapidly collapsing at every level, planetary nature is inevitably agonizing, and a growing threat of nuclear doom extends is dark and lethal arms around all of us pulling us toward an abyss that seems to be inescapable. Meanwhile, we persistently continue in our perennial attempts to escape our bleak reality through empty positivism whose only result is to put us to sleep in front of mortal danger. Denial and wishful thinking will NOT change the course of history as prophesied. Only honest repentance and sincere and meaningful prayer, accompanied by selfless acts of humanity that arise from our conscious study of Torah shall merit this world to climb out of the hole in which we all are speedily falling. But the real problem is: are the masses willing to do it? Are you? Am I?

Notwithstanding, the best part of all this ugly panorama we face is how bad it is getting. We all know that immediately after the greatest darkness of the night is when the light of day appears, and immediately after the worst and more frequent pains of delivery arrives a beautiful baby. Si it is with the current situation of our world.

We all need to understand that if there is not a humble change of heart among the masses of the world — and even more importantly among the Jews — we shall have to go through what was prophesied by our holy Prophets in the old days … and it is not going to be nice. But after that terrible pain and indescribable horror a New World shall arise lead by Moshiach under the Commands and Rules of HaShem. Then, at last, the world shall enjoy true and lasting Justice and Peace. But it could have being the easy way! Who is at fault? You and I. After all, in the same way that denial and wishful thinking are signs of personal dysfunction, so is projection.

My Ideas On This True War Against Terror, Not The Fake One Invented By The US


You Have Arrived To The ‘Mother Of All Rants Page’

Throwing All Political Correctness Out Of The Window

Beware, Get Away If You Are Of A Faint Heart

First of all, my apologies for not posting for so many days — most of all during these so important times — but my computer has been broken in the shop for far too long.  Now, one of my sons lent me this one … but, guess what, it’s having problems too!  Oh, well… I’ll try to do my best, though.

Would you allow terrorists to bomb your cities without a strong response?

For those of you that know me and my family, and for those who out of human solidarity simply care, I’ll say that even though we have been under fairly constant bombardment by the genocide-prone Muslim terrorists who bottom-dwell in Gaza, we are very well and with much hightened spirits. It is truly wonderful to witness and be a part of (although in a very miniscule way) the amazing salvation that HaShem constantly does for His People.

It is a great honor to live in a Land that infuses in the Jewish People such a great courage to face the hatred, threats and constant attacks of countless bloodthirsty savages, whose only purpose in life is to kill, conquer, abuse, lie, and kill, and kill and kill just as their barbaric Koranic (read demonic) religion of war and hatred demands of them.

I should start by a funny but true note of this necessary war.  Out of 834 missiles that the dishonorable Muslim terrorists had shot at us until this morning, 100 of them had fallen right upon their own heads in Gaza!  Well, it is the combination of the fact that they stink and are a bunch of loosers, plus the other evident Fact that HaShem loves Israel and also that He has a great sense of humor.  But it is also a Message and Reminder for all the Goyim in the world: that is what will happen in the future, as the Prophet Ezekiel says in the chapter 38 or 39 of his Holy Book in Tanakh.   I cannot quote it here and now because I’m in a computer lent and half-broken.  You look for it, but I assure you, it’s there.  Yes, miracles are happening, and more are on the way.

They attack our civilians from their civilian areas

For far too long, and shrouded by the complicit silence of the so-called “international community” and corporative media, the democratically-elected Hamas terrorists have constantly rocketed our civilian populations hidden from behind their own civilian areas in Gaza. That is the origin of this new round of war and death. Of course, the Arabs started their genocidal atempts almost 100 years ago, much before the resurrection of Israel.

whose fault is it?

So, under that cowardly primise of attacking us using their own families a human shileds and tools of propaganda, we have no other option that to attack their civilian areas. Again, we have to attack their civilian areas. Should I repeat, whose fault is it?

I think that we may be on the verge of an enormous war of incalculable dimensions.  This war shall be caused by the evil intrancigense of the Muslim Arabs, who do not want to accept the idea of the existance of a non-Muslim nation in the Middle East — no matter how well established the historical rights of that nation may be, as it is the case of the Jewish People in reference to our tiny Land.  The fact of the matter is that if we were Hindus, Christians or Buddhists, it would be the same ordeal with them.

The Arabic word ‘Islam’ means ‘submission’, and that is their main concern in life: They need to submit other nations, races, religions, philosophies, women, children everybody! and force them to follow the dictates of their degenerate false prophet and worship a cruel and filthy demon impersonating the True King of the Universe. Their biggest problem, though, is that Israel shall not be conquered and submitted ever again.  Yes, according to Prophecy there may come a day when Israel will be almost conquered and almost submitted by a confederacy of Islamic bastards; but it will be on that same Day when HaShem will “filp the omelette” around on them, thus causing their utter destruction — as well as as those pathetic nations that, out of their wet antisemitic dreams, solidarize openly or covertly with the Islamic filth.

Today, after only 4 1/2 days of our long-awaited and well-deserved response to their constant barrage of rockets upon our civilian heads, the Gazan rats are crying like non-paid whores for a cease fire.  Now, Muslim Brotherhood-controlled Egypt — one of their shameless Jihadist pimps — after only one day of having threatened us with Islamic retaliations for our “agression” against the “Palestinian” people, wants to be a “mediator” to achieve a cease fire that would prevent the erradication of terrorist Hamas from Aza, and that would make them look good.  Now they all whine to the UN through the prostituted media, which they have bought with their petro-dollars.  But, we Jews know all too well that the so-called “international community” and the liberal media wish — no, salivates — for our complete disapearance from our Land one way or another, so as to placate the Arabs and continue receiving their oil.

Last night a building where journalists cohabit with terrorists in Gaza was destroyed by our forces; no one was hurt, but Al Jazzira and other Muslim outlets said that several news people had being wounded.  But the Western “journalists” did not care to contradict such falacy.  So why should we care about such “journalists”?  They are there knowingly serving as human shields to the terrorists, and possibly much more; they take sides with the terrorists, and the want immunity so as to prevent weapon caches and terrorists strongholds to be exonerated from attack.  My opinion is that if they don’t want to get hurt, or worse, not to get in the line of fire … or else, goodby.  Are they not the ones that published that Israel had aimed at a civilian home, when in reality it was the house of thecommander of the north forces of the terrorists?  Who says that terrorists can aim at our homes but that we cannot aim at theirs?  And their children?  Well, why should we care about their children when they don’t care about them, rather they use them as human shields?! 

A wounded Israeli baby.  Few publicized this foto because few care about Israeli civilians

A wounded Israeli baby. Few publicized this foto because few care about Israeli civilians at all

They have pushed us to this understanding:  we are to care FIRST and FOREMOST for our own children and much later for others’.  The US and Europe have murdered an immense amount of children in Iraq and Afghanistan by bombing blindly their enemy, but now they want to hold us to a different standard.  Bastards!!!

America invented a reason to attack Iraq, where almost a million civilians were indescriminately killed and maimed by NATO.  And they were not attacked, not even provoked, by the Iraqis.  Ah, but killing in the name of oil is OK.  Should I clarify that Americans call oil “freedom” as in “the Marines are fighting for ‘freedom’.”  Hah!  Yes, that’s true American ingenuity, allright.  America went to Afghanistan to control the market of Opium Poppies and Heroine, the production of which has quadrupled under the American military invasion and supervision.  And where is the oh so selfrighteous media informing the zombies of the world about this fact?  Of course they euphemistically called this “The War On Terror,” when in reality it was ‘The War For Oil And Drugs’.

Ah, but when Israel fights the only true war on terror in this world against true terrorists

not elements controlled by our Mossad, as it is the case with the CIA and Al Qaida then everybody becomes so, so humane… even though we send hundreds of thousands of leaflets and messages to the unworthy “civilians” in Gaza to stay away from our bombs directed surgically to weapon depots and terrorist training camps.  But why the true civilians do not leave their weapons-ridden homes?  Because they are forced at gun point by the also civilian terrorists.  What should we do, then?  The same American and Europeans have done all along without any reason: bomb them.  The civilians in Gaza voted for Hamas in the hopes that they would exterminate the civilian Jewish population in Israel; therefore, they had it coming.  Aren’t these the same civilians that when our civilians are exploded by their beloved terrorists dance in the streets  of Gaza and congratulate one another?  So why the commiseration now with such bunch of rabid donkeys?

When we see terrorists on TV, what do we see?  Armed civilians!  But the antisemitic media ignores that fact, and when we kill them they report that civilians were “assassinated by Israel.”  Yes, the media is complicit with the modern Hitlerists, just as they were when the Holocaust.  So, maybe I will cry for Argentina, but I will not for blood-thirsty terrorists, nor for their supporting civilians, and not when lying journalists fall while our forces try and clean that enclave of evil since I, like David HaMelech, hate HaShem’s enemies and the enemies of his People with a perfect hatred, and I will loudly exult The Almighty, B”H, when He will at last annihilate, through Moshiach, all the enemies of Israel in a well deserved Display of His Omnipotence in the rapidly coming Great Day of our Redemption.  May it be soon, in our lifetime so that we can finally say and have Shalom.

Evil Barack Obama Wins The Reelection. Mid East Faces Nuclear Iran, Brotherhood Grip


Proving that demoralization is the worst enemy any country can have,
in an act of national suicide Aemrica reelects her own destroyer

Soon Obama will drop his mask and the worst nightmare shall be unleashed
upon humanity in general, most of all Americans, specially the American Jews
and the Jews in Israel who hold no trust in HaShem. Ready for the rough ride?

Barack the Destroyer

Barack the Destroyer

Hidden Muslim Jihadist and Kenyan-born Barack Hussein Obama has won his re-election as the ruler of the United States of America, according to all the projections of the Nov. 6 vote — albeit ahead of the final count of ballots. The very dark prospect of another four years of Obama in the White House fills some Middle East nations, including the Persian Gulf and Israel, with much trepidation.

They envisage a foreign policy that continues to focus on hitching US influence in the Muslim world — Sunni and Shiite alike — on to a wagon led by Iran as the first Islamic Shite Muslim nuclear power and the sponsorship of Muslim Brotherhood rule of Sunni Arab nations. For Israel, this policy translates bleakly into American backing for the two most forbidding ideological foes it has faced in all its 63 years: Iran, whose leaders call openly for Israel’s extinction — even from the UN platform — although this is achievable only by nuclear aggression; and the hostile Muslim Brotherhood. Only four days ago, senior Israeli Defense Ministry official Amos Gilead called the Brotherhood-ruled Egyptian government “a terrible dictatorship.” After years of close ties with Egyptian rulers and military chiefs, Gilead said: “There is no official contact between the top tiers of Egyptian and Israeli government, and I don’t think there will be.”  A clear achievement of Obama’s so far subtle Jihadist policies.

According to debkafile’s military and intelligence sources, Gilead offered a glimpse of a grimmer prospect which Israeli leaders are discussing behind close doors: They fear that the second Obama term will usher in a nuclear-armed Shiite Iran which will quickly reach out to the Sunni Muslim Brothers, starting with Egypt, for a joint bid to terminate the life of the Jewish state. Before dismissing this scenario as paranoid hyperbole, it is worth taking a look at an opinion poll conducted in Egypt in late August of this year by the Greenberg Quinlan Rosner Research Institute. It aimed at canvassing popular ratings of Iran after the Muslim Brotherhood took power in Cairo.

Stanley Greenberg, who is close to Democratic Party leaders, was recently hired by Israel’s Labor Party as senior campaign strategist for the Jan. 22, 2013 election. This American pollster found that 61 percent of the Egyptians surveyed approved of Iran’s nuclear weapons program, compared with 30 percent who disapproved. In 2009, the comparable figures were 40 percent for and 34 percent against a nuclear Iran. The same poll in 2012 found 65 percent of Egyptians in favor of resuming the long-severed diplomatic ties with Tehran, as against 30 who were against.

The undisguised discord between Barack Obama and Israel’s Binyamin Netanyahu is usually presented as sparked by their falling-out over military action for preempting Iran’s nuclear weapons program.  This view is both simplistic and misleading. Their differences are far broader in scope: Netanyahu and most other Israeli leaders contest Obama’s signature Middle East objective of bringing the Muslim Brotherhood to power in Egypt, Tunisia, Libya — and ultimately Syria — by presenting the MB as a moderate movement with whom America can do business and conduct a balanced Middle East policy. This goal actuated the Arab Revolt — or Spring — which erupted in December 2012. As a clear enemy of Israel, Hussein Obozo has condemned Israel to an ever-tightening Islamist noose around its borders with worse to come: The last gap will be filled after the Brothers attain power in Damascus and ultimately set their sights on Jordan as the springboard to Saudi Arabia. Despite what many obtuse people might think, this will happen sooner than later.

Whenever Obama is confronted with this allegation, he answers undeniably that he has done more than any American president for Israel’s security and raised US-Israeli military and intelligence cooperation to an unmatched level. This cannot be gainsaid, but in the view of many military and intelligence experts, it is only one aspect of the general picture: While bolstering Israel militarily, the US ruler has also bolstered its worst Middle East enemies and enhanced their ability to strike at the foundations of Israel’s national security.

The emergence of a nuclear-armed Islamic Republic, which Israel may soon despair of thwarting, would nullify all the propaganda-driven military or intelligence assistance the Obama administration has rendered the Jewish state to guarantee its survival.

No Israeli leader, political or military, is willing to go further than Amos Gilead and publicly admit that Israel is laboring under a dual compulsion; It is being forced to contemplate active measures for extinguishing Iran’s nuclear program while at the same time standing ready to challenge Egypt over Sinai which has swung out of Cairo’s control and deteriorated into a lawless terrorist springboard against both countries.

This is the situation after four years of rulership, what do you think that he will achieve after four more years?

Answer:  World War Three and Four by the end of 2015.

14 Signs Which Show That The World Economy Is Getting Weaker


From Weak to Increasingly Weaker Until it Finally Collapses
There is No Solution for the Dying World Economy

There is Too Much Greed, and Even Worse,
Evil Intentions For it To Recover

World Economy

The United States is not the only one with massive economic problems right now.  The truth is that just about wherever you look around the globe things are getting even worse.  China is experiencing a substantial economic slowdown, and Japan has resorted to yet another round of money printing in an effort to keep the Japanese economy moving.  Unemployment in Europe continues to get even worse, and the riots this week in Spain and in Greece have been absolutely frightening at times.  In the United States there are a whole host of signs that another recession is approaching, and the number of American CEOs that say that they plan to eliminate jobs in the coming months is rapidly rising.

The world economy is more interconnected today than ever before, and that means that we are all in this together.  Just remember what happened back in 2008 and 2009.  The economic pain that started on Wall Street was felt in every corner of the planet.  So, anyone that believes that the United States (or any other major nation for that matter) is going to escape the next wave of the economic crisis is simply not being realistic.

Why do you think central banks all over the world are in “panic mode” right now?  They are firing all of their ammunition and printing money like there is no tomorrow in an attempt to keep the system together.  Unfortunately, it is not going to work.

If the powers that be had an “easy button” that would quickly fix everything, they would have pressed it by now.  But despite all of their efforts things continue to unravel.  If you want to get an idea of where we are headed,  just look at what is already happening in Europe.   Unemployment has risen above 24 percent in Greece and above 25 percent in Spain.

Those two nations are on the “bleeding edge” of the next wave of economic problems.  Unemployment is rising almost everywhere else in Europe as well, and things are eventually going to get really bad in Asia and in North America too.

So hold on to your seat belts — it is going to be a bumpy ride.

The following are 14 signs from around the globe that the world economy is getting weaker….

  1. Things in China do not look good right now.  The Shanghai Composite index fell to its lowest point in over 3 years earlier this week.  Will the S&P 500 soon follow suit?
  2. The Bank of Japan has resorted to yet another round of money printing in a desperate attempt to try to bolster the faltering Japanese economy….
    1. In Asia, the Bank of Japan has long been manufacturing money out of thin air. It has just announced an eighth round of money printing to prop up the ailing Japanese economy. The Bank of Japan is to purchase 10 trillion yen of bonds to add further liquidity into the financial system. Now it has 80 trillion yen of bonds in its portfolio, equivalent to 20 per cent of Japan’s gross domestic product.
  3. In Spain, violent demonstrations over the state of the Spanish economy just outside the national Parliament building in Madrid on Tuesday evening made headlines all over the globe.  You can view video of police brutally beating young Spanish protesters during those demonstrations right here.
  4. As unemployment hovers around the 25 percent mark, foraging through garbage bins for food has become so rampant in Spain that one city has actually started putting locks on supermarket garbage bins “as a public health precaution“.
  5. Despite all of the money printing that the ECB has been doing, the yield on 10 year Spanish bonds has risen back up to about 6 percent again.
  6. The economic protests in Greece are getting completely and totally out of control.  Just check out this description of the “Day of Rage” that took place in Greece earlier this week….
    1. Police fired stun grenades and tear gas at protesters yesterday as tens of thousands poured into the streets of Athens as part of a nationwide strike to challenge a new round of austerity measures that are expected to cut wages, pensions and healthcare once again.
    2. Dozens of youths, some masking their faces with helmets and T-shirts, hurled Molotov cocktails and rocks at police who fired back in an effort to scatter the angry crowds around the parliament building. More than 50,000 people are believed to have participated in the mass walk-out in Athens alone.
  7. The unemployment rate in France has risen for 16 months in a row and is now the highest that it has been in over a decade.
  8. As I wrote about recently, the number of unemployed workers in Italy has increased by more than 37 percent over the past year.
  9. New orders for durable goods in the United States fell by a whopping 13.2 percent in August.  That was the largest decline that we have seen since the middle of the last recession (January 2009).
  10. According to the Bureau of Economic Analysis, U.S. GDP only grew at a 1.3 percent annual rate during the second quarter of 2012 as opposed to the 1.7 percent annual rate previously reported.
  11. The U.S. Postal Service is about to experience its second financial default in just the past two months….
    1. The U.S. Postal Service will default this week on a $5.6 billion congressionally mandated obligation to pre-fund retiree health benefits, marking the second time in two months the cash-strapped agency has done this.
  12. It looks like General Motors is on a path that will lead to bankruptcy (again).
  13. According to a recent survey conducted by State Street Global Advisors, 71 percent of “investors in a survey of 300 around the world, including the largest pension funds, asset managers and private banks, fear an imminent Lehman-like event.”
  14. According to a recent survey of American CEOs by Business Roundtable, the number of CEOs that plan to eliminate jobs has risen significantly from earlier this year….

The CEOs’ decline in confidence comes alongside a worsening employment outlook. Thirty-four percent of the 138 CEOs surveyed said in this quarter’s survey that they expected their companies to cut jobs in the next six months, compared to just 20 percent in the second quarter. Likewise, only 29 percent say they expect employment to grow in the next half year, down from 36 percent last quarter.

But the mainstream media in the United States would like us to believe that everything is getting better.  The mainstream media would like us to believe that QE3 is going to stimulate lots of new hiring all over America, and they are greatly celebrating the fact that the S&P 500 hit a five year high on Thursday.

Protest in Spain

Well, those on Wall Street should celebrate this monetary “sugar high” while they still can.  Of course QE3 was going to cause stock prices to rise in the short-term, but the reality of the matter is that QE3 is not going to do a thing to stop the financial markets from crashing when the time comes for them to crash.

Economies tend to flourish in a stable, predictable environment.  When you start recklessly printing money, it may help your economic numbers in the short-term, but it disrupts the stability of the system.

And once you have created a tremendous amount of instability, it is really, really hard to convince people that you can create stability once again.

When it comes to economics, confidence is one of the most important ingredients.  If people lose confidence in the system, it almost does not matter what else you do.

As I wrote about the other day, quantitative easing worked for the Weimar Republic for a little while, but in the end it resulted in total disaster.

It will also end in total disaster for us.

All over the globe financial authorities are playing all sorts of games in an attempt to keep the system functioning smoothly.  But these games are going to steadily undermine confidence in the system, and that is going to prove to be absolutely deadly.

Take advantage of this period of relative stability while you still can, because when it is gone it is not coming back.

What Is Hoshanah Rabbah? Does It Have A Connection With The War Of Gog uMagog?


On Rosh Hashanah our Judgement is Written in the Heavenly Book,
then on Yom Kippur that Highest Judicial Decision is Sealed,
and on Hoshanah Rabbah the Verdict is Implemented

Hoshanah Rabbah, the last day of the Sukkot Festival, is the day when the most prayers for Redemption are recited.

Chabad.org: These prayers for Redemption are referred to as Hoshanot because each stanza of the prayer is accompanied by the word Hoshanah — a combination form of the words hosha and nah (bring us salvation, please).

On the first six days of the Festival, the Bimah is circled once. On Hoshana Rabbah, the last day of the Festival, seven circles are made. This custom commemorates the service in the Bet ha-Mikdash during which the kohanim would circle the Altar once daily and seven times on Hoshana Rabbah.

Hoshana Rabbah is the last day on which we fulfill the Mitzvot of the Four Species and dwelling in the Sukkah …. The day is referred to as Hoshana Rabbah (literally, The Great Hoshanah) because more Hoshanah prayers are recited on this day than on the other days.

Jewish Virtual Library:  “In the period of the geonim, the celebration of Hoshanah Rabba acquired considerable solemnity and religious-mystic significance. In Jerusalem a large gathering took place on the Mount of Olives which was circled seven times; official announcements (such as fixing the coming year) were proclaimed; philanthropists and communities received blessings; and public excommunications were issued. The piyyut of Hoshana Rabba which opens with the words, “the Power of Thy Salvation cometh,” which deals with the splitting open of the Mount of Olives (Zechariah 14:4) and the resurrection of the dead, probably has its origin in this ceremony.”

Hoshanah Rabbah occurs on the 21st day of Tishrei and corresponds to the 21st of Nissan when Israel was saved and her enemies were vanquished at the splitting of the Reed Sea. Both dates are exactly six months apart.  The first Redemption took place on the 21st day of Nissan, and the last Redemption shall take place on the 21st day of Tisrei.  HaShem has a fine taste for mathematical parallelisms in history.

Will Hoshanah Rabbah 5773 be the day that Israel is saved and her enemies vanquished at the splitting of the Mount of Olives?  It could be; and if it is not this year, it shall be one another year soon.

Rav Fish (Sod Hachashmal) on Gog uMagog

…It is written (Zechariah 14:2) that during the Gog U’Magog war there will be an earthquake on Har Hazeitim (Mount of Olives) in Yerushalayim, and there shall be the victory upon Gog U’Magog. Based on what we explained, that this will be on Hoshana Rabba, we understand the “Sefer Chassidim” which says: “Rav Hai Gaon used to go to Yerushalayim from Bavel every year on Succot, and surrounded Har Hazeitim seven times every Hoshana Rabba. Many of the special Tefilot we recite on Hoshana Rabba are concerning the Geula, such as: .תִּתְּנֵנוּ לְשֵׁם וְלִתְהִלָּה וְכוּ’. קוֹל מְבַשֵּׂר מְבַשֵּׂר וְאוֹמֵר

The Arizal writes (Likutei Torah, Sh’mot) the words Gog U’Magog equal 70, compared to the seventy nations. Gog U’Magog shall control all of the 70 nations, and they will all gather against Yisrael. When Am Yisrael will be redeemed, it shall be “Hoshana Rabba” (A Great Salvation). The verse (Tehillim 27:5)  “He shall hide me in the Succah on the Bad Day” is the same letters as “Arava Day” (refers to Hoshana Rabba): “כִּי יִצְפְּנֵנִי בְּסֻכֹּה בְּיוֹם רָעָה”, אוֹתִיּוֹת יוֹם עֲרָבָה

And then, there is this: Signs Sha’at Ratzon: Time of Will Sukkot 5773

KEN, YEHI RATZON !!!

Fordo Sabotage Enabled Netanyahu To Move The Iran Red Line To The Spring Of 2013


A Successful Operation Inside Iran Possibly Has Delayed the Inevitable War

But There IS Still Danger for an All-Out War in the Middle East

While the Anti-Semitic International Community Watches in Approving Silence
Islam roars Emboldened by Obama’s Openly Treasonous Policies
And it is Boldly Looking to Bring About WW3.
Oy! They’ll Have Their Wish, because
Never Again !!

Fordo Nuclear Site

Iran’s Fordo Nuclear Site

The sabotage of the Fordo uranium enrichment facility’s power lines on Aug. 17 gave Israel Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu extra leeway to move his original Red Line for Iran from late September 2012 – now – to the spring or early summer of 2013. The disruption of the underground enrichment plant’s power supply caused several of the advanced IR-1 and IR-4 centrifuges producing the 20-percent grade uranium to burst into flames. Work was temporarily halted and the accumulation of 240 kilos for Iran’s first nuclear bomb slowed down by at least six months. Hence Netanyahu’s new Red Line timeline of “late spring, early summer” — before which preventive action is imperative — in his speech to the UN General Assembly Thursday, Sept. 27. Military sources report that the advantage gained is already proving short-lived. Iran has pounced back fast with two aggressive counter-moves on Israel’s doorstep:

  1. Thousands of elite Al Qods Brigades officers and men are being airlifted into Lebanon and Syria and deployed opposite Israeli borders (as previously reported);
  2. Shortly before the Israeli Prime Minister rose to speak in New York, Syrian Tyrant Bashar Assad removed chemical weapons out of storage again. Some were almost certainly passed to the incoming Iranian units. The weapons’ movements were accounted for as a precaution for “greater security,” but in practice they will be ready for use against Israel when the order is handed down from Tehran.

Nuclear IranFriday, Sept. 28, US Defense Secretary Leon Panetta was specifically asked by a reporter if it was believed that “Iran’s Revolutionary Guards or Syrian rebels had been able to get possession of any of the chemical weapons” which the secretary had just disclosed were on the move. He left the door open, saying only that he had “no firm information to confirm this.” That sort of question never comes out of thin air.

It was also the second time in three weeks that the defense secretary mentioned the movements of Syrian chemical weapons out of storage. This time, he said, ‘‘There has been intelligence that there have been some moves that have taken place. Where exactly that’s taken place, we don’t know.” But he did not rule out the possibility that they were being made ready for use.

This non-denial tied in closely with the words heard that day from US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton:

“Iran has left no doubt that it will do whatever it takes to protect the government of Syrian President Bashar Assad, Tehran’s staunch ally.”

Syrian chemical weapons movements out of storage, the presence of crack Iranian fighting units on Israel’s borders and Tehran’s determination to keep Assad in power “whatever it takes” hung in menacing silence over Netanyahu’s powerful cartoon presentation of the Iranian nuclear peril.

Already on Sept. 16, the Revolutionary Guards chief Gen. Ali Jafary announced publicly that al Qods Brigades personnel had landed not only in Syria but also Lebanon. The chemical weapons may therefore have already reached Hizballah or be on their way there unbeknownst to US intelligence. Both Netanyahu and Defense Minister Ehud Barak have repeatedly stated that the transfer of chemical weapons to Hizballah would necessitate Israeli military action.

The IDF’s large-scale military call-up and firing exercise on the Golan of Sept. 19 failed to deter the Iranian military buildup opposite Israeli northern borders in Syria and Lebanon. The Iranian airlift continues and US intelligence has not denied that some al Qods arrivals may now be armed with chemical weapons. The Iranian threat to Israel is therefore far from static; it is gaining substance and menace, keeping two IDF divisions on call in northern Israel after the exercise was over.

Netanyahu’s Red Line for preventing Iran achieving a 240-kilo enriched uranium stockpile does not cover an Iranian preemptive attack on the Jewish state before then — as threatened explicitly by the Iranian missiles Corps chief Brig. Gen. Amir Ali Hajizade on Sept. 24.

Neither had Israeli officials anything to say about the Hamas leaders’ trips to Beirut and Tehran this month to sign military accords with the Revolutionary Guards and Hizballah pledging the Palestinian extremists’ participation in an attack on Israel.

The Red Line on the cartoon bomb which Netanyahu held up so effectively at the UN Thursday covered only one segment of the danger Tehran poses for the Jewish state. A more immediate danger lurks in the north.
