Blame Israel. Death to the Jews...
Hezbollah of Lebanon threatens Israel yet again.... If only the "Zionist state" didn't exist everything in the Middle East would be all lovey-dovey. The Christian and Muslim factions would go on picnics together and sing kumbaya around a campfire (of burning Jewish embers!) and gas prices would be low and Norman Rockwell would return as from the dead and... Ah yes... if not for those meddlesome Jews!
There must be some Solution to our shared Jewish problem, some Final Solution....
Its the same old song and dance!
Once again it may mean open war...
And Israel is currently being led by someone (Ehud Omert) who lacks the courage to say no to Bush and the NWO or to place his faith firmly in HaShem, to fully deploy his military might when needed, and to Stand Boldly for Israel!"Never Again" Means "Not Now Either!"
Stand tall in faith Israel and HaShem will again deliver His people!!
Remember the example of King Ahaz! HaShem will not and has not abandoned His people! Have courage and STAND!
Yisheyah 6 (Isaiah 7) in the JPS
(JEWISH PUBLICATION SOCIETY BIBLE).
1: And it came to pass in the days of Ahaz the son of Jotham, the son of Uzziah, king of Judah, that Rezin the king of Aram, and Pekah the son of Remaliah, king of Israel, went up to Jerusalem to war against it; but could not prevail against it.
2: And it was told the house of David, saying: 'Aram is confederate with Ephraim.' And his heart was moved, and the heart of his people, as the trees of the forest are moved with the wind.
3: Then said HaShem unto Isaiah: 'Go forth now to meet Ahaz, thou, and Shear-jashub thy son, at the end of the conduit of the upper pool, in the highway of the fullers' field;
4: and say unto him: Keep calm, and be quiet; fear not, neither let thy heart be faint, because of these two tails of smoking firebrands, for the fierce anger of Rezin and Aram, and of the son of Remaliah.
5: Because Aram hath counselled evil against thee, Ephraim also, and the son of Remaliah, saying:
6: Let us go up against Judah, and vex it, and let us make a breach therein for us, and set up a king in the midst of it, even the son of Tabeel;
7: thus saith the L-rd GOD: it shall not stand, neither shall it come to pass.
8: For the head of Aram is Damascus, and the head of Damascus is Rezin; and within threescore and five years shall Ephraim be broken, that it be not a people;
9: And the head of Ephraim is Samaria, and the head of Samaria is Remaliah's son. If ye will not have faith, surely ye shall not be established.'
10: And HaShem spoke again unto Ahaz, saying:
11: 'Ask thee a sign of HaShem thy G-d: ask it either in the depth, or in the height above.'
12: But Ahaz said: 'I will not ask, neither will I try HaShem.'
13: And he said: 'Hear ye now, O house of David: Is it a small thing for you to weary men, that ye will weary my G-d also?
14: Therefore the L-rd Himself shall give you a sign: behold, the young woman shall conceive, and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel.
15: Curd and honey shall he eat, when he knoweth to refuse the evil, and choose the good.
16: Yea, before the child shall know to refuse the evil, and choose the good, the land whose two kings thou hast a horror of shall be forsaken.
17: HaShem shall bring upon thee, and upon thy people, and upon thy father's house, days that have not come, from the day that Ephraim departed from Judah; even the king of Assyria.'
18: And it shall come to pass in that day, that HaShem shall hiss for the fly that is in the uttermost part of the rivers of Egypt, and for the bee that is in the land of Assyria.
19: And they shall come, and shall rest all of them in the rugged valleys, and in the holes of the rocks, and upon all thorns, and upon all brambles.
20: In that day shall the L-rd shave with a razor that is hired in the parts beyond the River, even with the king of Assyria, the head and the hair of the feet; and it shall also sweep away the beard.
21: And it shall come to pass in that day, that a man shall rear a young cow, and two sheep;
22: and it shall come to pass, for the abundance of milk that they shall give, he shall eat curd; for curd and honey shall every one eat that is left in the midst of the land.
23: And it shall come to pass in that day, that every place, where there were a thousand vines at a thousand silverlings, shall even be for briers and thorns.
24: With arrows and with bow shall one come thither; because all the land shall become briers and thorns.
25: And all the hills that were digged with the mattock, thou shalt not come thither for fear of briers and thorns, but it shall be for the sending forth of oxen, and for the treading of sheep.
So... who killed commander Imad Mughniyeh? That's the big question right now.
Why would Israel kill Mughniyeh now when Jerusalem is being so threatened by Bush and Rice? Remember, Bush has promised to divide Jerusalem and make East Jerusalem the capital of yet another Islamic Ummah state, known as Palestine, by the end of his term (if he leaves office).
Such instability does not help Israel, it only invites globalist involvement and intervention.
I suspect the actual assassins are identified in this piece: "...The former Hezbollah security chief was one of world's most wanted fugitives, accused of masterminding attacks that killed hundreds of Americans in Lebanon in the 1980s...."
NWO pawn Bush desperately needs to convince the American people that Israel needs to be slapped down a few pegs, if not destroyed. His Saud royal family NWO compatriots are demanding this of him and in Annapolis last year he and his henchperson Condi Rice set about doing just this: the desecration and division of Jerusalem by January, 2009. Something Hillary supports BTW.
Implicating Israel not only in a political assassination like this, but in one that places American Jews (and others in their vicinity) in jeopardy and that could lead to World War 3 could be used to do just this:
"The chief of Hezbollah told throngs of supporters at a funeral for slain commander Imad Mughniyeh his group would retaliate against Israeli targets anywhere in the world after accusing the Jewish state of killing the militant (emphasis mine)."
Note Nasrallah's threat that, "...the killing of Mughniyeh did not weaken his organization, but rather provided an incentive for "tens of thousands" of guerrillas who stood ready to fight Israel," and that, "Mughniyeh's blood will lead to the elimination of Israel. These words are not an emotional reaction" (emphasis mine).
By showing that because of the Israeli government's "very big folly that will be avenged" all of Israel is now facing possible genocide, plus the dangers the political hit could mean globally... the NWO powers-that-be can claim a virtual mandate to restructure the Middle East in their own image. As the Church Lady would say, "How convienant!
Enter Kaptain Amerikka: Bush to the rescue! He'll offer (coerce) to restore the peace by giving East Jerusalem to Hezbollah "Palestinians" while making it clear to the Israelis that if Israel does not comply with NWO demands they will use the Islamic Ummah as their 21st century Final Solution to the Jewish problem!
This is why I think this is happening right now.
The Prophecies must be fulfilled.
Muslim prophecies demand that Prophet Jesus and Iman Madhi must meet in a non-Jewish East Jerusalem and from there destroy the Jews world wide.
Following that event a hadith says: "A Jew will not be found alone with a Muslim without plotting to kill him." According to another, Prophet Muhammad said: "The Hour will not be established until you fight with the Jews, and the stone behind which a Jew will be hiding will say. 'O Muslim! There is a Jew hiding behind me, so come kill him'. This hadith has been quoted countless times, and it has become a part of the charter of Hamas.
This interpretation is confirmed by the Wikipedia:
"On 30 March 2007, Hamas spokesman Ismail Radwan ended his "prayers to Allah" in a sermon broadcast on the Palestinian Authority’s TV quoting the hadith "The Hour [of Resurrection] will not take place until the Muslims fight the Jews and the Muslims kill them, and the rock and the tree will say: 'Oh, Muslim, servant of Allah, there is a Jew behind me, kill him!'" Al Aqsa mosque would be "liberated" "through the rifle", since the Israeli occupation knew no other language. He asked "Jihad-fighting worshippers" in "Palestine and everywhere" and Allah to take away the oppressor Jews and Americans and their supporters!"
But Bush and Hillary want to give these people East Jurusalem, Judea and Samaria!
|1||Now the LORD had said unto Abram, Get thee out of thy country, and from thy kindred, and from thy father's house, unto a land that I will show thee:|
|2||And I will make of thee a great nation, and I will bless thee, and make thy name great; and thou shalt be a blessing:|
|3||And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee: and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed.|

Nasrallah: Hezbollah ready to fight
Nasrallah said Israel should expect 'open war' after he accused it of attacking targets outside Lebanon [AFP]
The secretary-general of Hezbollah has said that his movement is ready for open warfare with Israel, in a speech to supporters mourning the death of a senior commander.
Accusing Israel of killing Imad Moghniyeh in a car bomb blast in the Syrian capital Damascus late on Tuesday, Hassan Nasrallah said on Thursday that it had "crossed the borders".
"With this murder, its timing, location and method - Zionists [Israel] if you want this kind of open war, let the whole world listen: Let this war be open," he said.
He also said that Hezbollah fighters had started preparing for the next war immediately after the end of the 2006 war with Israel.
The life of an elusive figure
Speaking in a videotaped message to supporters at the funeral service for Moghniyeh in southern Beirut, Nasrallah said: "Like all human beings we have a sacred right to defend ourselves.
"We will do all that it takes to defend our country and people."
The speech by Nasrallah, who is in hiding after the July 2006 war between Israel and Hezbollah, came shortly after an event in the Lebanese capital to mark the third anniversary of the assassination of Rafiq al-Hariri, a former prime minister.
Security was tight in Beirut as thousands of people gathered for the two separate rallies, which highlighted the deep divisions in the country.
Leaders in the pro-government March 14 bloc had supporters in the al-Hariri commemoration to show their rejection of alleged Syrian efforts to regain influence in Lebanon.
How can the crisis in Lebanon be overcome?

Hezbollah, which is supported by Syria and Iran, has led an opposition political bloc against March 14 for the past three years.
Rula Amin, Al Jazeera's correspondent in Beirut, said the rallies in Beirut advanced different visions for Lebanon.
"In the al-Hariri rally the speakers there were taking pride that it was the United States, the EU and the West that was backing them and empowering their constituency," she said.
"In the southern suburbs at the funeral for Moghniyeh there was defiance to Israel, the United States and the West in general - who consider Mogniyeh a terrorist.
"This [funeral gathering] was a strong message from Hezbollah - they wanted to show not just Israel but the March 14 leaders that they also command support on the streets."
Moghniyeh, who was accused by the US of planning attacks on Western targets during the Lebanese civil war, was killed in by car bomb blast in Damascus on Tuesday evening.
Thousands of supporters called on Syria
to stay out of Lebanese politics [AFP]
Hezbollah has accused Israel of killing Moghniyeh, while Syria, a supporter of Hezbollah, branded the attack a "cowardly and terrorist act".
Nasrallah blamed Israel directly for Moghniyeh's death, and said that the July 2006 war with Israel was continuing, although not on a military level.
"The July war is still continuing - until now, no ceasefire has been proclaimed. This war is continuing at the political level, at the media level, at the financial and material level, at the security level," he said.
"It is supported by the same countries that supported Israel in the July war. This is why [Moghniyeh] was assassinated."
Nasrallah said that the death of Moghniyeh would only strengthen the resistance against Israel.
"Moghniyeh's blood will lead to the elimination of Israel. These words are not an emotional reaction," he said.
Amin said Nasrallah's word were "very clear" and that Lebanese people were wondering what Hezbollah would do next.
"For many Lebanese they are wondering: is this going to mean another war with Israel? Will it mean more bombings? Will they have to flee their homes again?" she said.
Israel has ordered its military, embassies and Jewish institutions around the world to increase security measures in case of revenge attacks, Israeli officials said on Thursday, on condition of anonymity.
Earlier on Thursday, thousands of people attended a rally to mark the third anniversary of al-Hariri's death.
Hezbollah ready to expand fight aginst Israel
They carried Lebanese flags and photographs of al-Hariri and other politicians and political figures killed in attacks blamed on Syria.
Al-Hariri was killed in a car bombing on Beirut's seafront in 2005, sparking mass protests and the withdrawal of Syrian troops after 29 years.
Syria denies any links to a series of killings across Lebanon in the past three years.
"In 2005 you took to the streets to force them out. In 2008 you must do the same so that they don't come back," read messages on billboards around Beirut.
In a speech to the rally, Saad al-Hariri, the former prime minister's son and the parliamentary leader of the ruling bloc, said that three years ago forces tried to "assassinate Lebanon".
"Here you are today, gathering once again, responding to the call of freedom, sovereignty and independence," he told the crowd.
Schools and universities were ordered to shut on Thursday, while most businesses were set to close as the government declared a holiday.
Staying at home
Concerns that the two events could spark unrest between opposing political supporters prompted foreign embassies to urge their citizens to observe extreme caution and avoid travel in Beirut.
The day of mourning for both the March 14 ruling bloc and its opponent Hezbollah comes amid continuing differences in Lebanese politics.
There has been a power vacuum in Lebanon since November, with opposing political factions failing to agree on a new president and the distribution of key cabinet portfolios.
Al-Hariri called for the parliamentary vote to confirm General Michel Suleiman as president, which has been postponed 14 times, to go ahead.
"We want a president for the republic," he told the rally.
The Israeli prime minister's office denied allegations that it had played any role in Moghniyeh's killing.
"Israel rejects the attempts of terror elements to attribute to Israel any involvement in this incident," Ehud Olmert's office said in a statement on Wednesday.
Iran also accused Israel of carrying out the attack.

However, the US welcomed Moghniyeh's killing, saying that he had been responsible for many deaths.
"The world is a better place without this man in it. He was a cold-blooded killer, a mass murderer and a terrorist responsible for countless innocent lives lost," Sean McCormack, the US state department spokesman, said on Wednesday.
Also known as Hajj Radhwan, Moghniyeh was widely suspected of being behind a wave of Western hostage-taking in Lebanon in the 1980s, claims denied by Hezbollah.
According to the US and the West, he was a "top terrorist" and was involved in the bombing of the US embassy in Beirut in April 1983.
The US also claims he was involved in the killing of hundreds of US marines and French paratroopers in simultaneous truck bomb attacks in October 1983.

And the second from Associated Press
The chief of Hezbollah told throngs of supporters at a funeral for slain commander Imad Mughniyeh his group would retaliate against Israeli targets anywhere in the world after accusing the Jewish state of killing the militant.
Israel ordered its military, embassies and Jewish institutions overseas to go on alert earlier in the day, fearing revenge attacks for the car bomb that killed Mughniyeh Tuesday night in Damascus. The former Hezbollah security chief was one of world's most wanted fugitives, accused of masterminding attacks that killed hundreds of Americans in Lebanon in the 1980s.
While Hezbollah supporters bid farewell to Mughniyeh, tens of thousands of their pro-Western political opponents filled a downtown Beirut square to mark former Prime Minister Rafik Hariri's 2005 assassination. The opposing gatherings reflected Lebanon's divided soul and fearing clashes, authorities deployed thousands of troops. But by evening, there were no reports of violence.
Hezbollah and its Iranian backers blamed Israel for killing Mughniyeh but Israel denied involvement.
In a fiery, videotaped eulogy broadcast on a giant screen to tens of thousands attending the south Beirut funeral, Nasrallah said Israel had taken the fight outside the "natural battlefield" of Israel and Lebanon.
"You have crossed the borders," he said. "With this murder, its timing, location and method — Zionists, if you want this kind of open war, let the whole world listen: Let this war be open."
Thousands gathered in a hall in the Roueiss neighborhood of Beirut where Mughniyeh's coffin lay draped in a Hezbollah flag. A band played Lebanon's national anthem and the guerrilla group's anthem. Outside in the rain, tens of thousands more stood in silence.
Nasrallah — himself in hiding because of fears of assassination since the 2006 summer war with Israel — warned Israel that its alleged killing of Mughniyeh was a "very big folly" which will be avenged.
"Mughniyeh's blood will lead to the elimination of Israel. These words are not an emotional reaction," he said, drawing roars from the crowd which raised fists into the air.
Nasrallah said the killing of Mughniyeh did not weaken his organization, but rather provided an incentive for "tens of thousands" of guerrillas who stood ready to fight Israel.
Soon after he finished speaking, volleys of celebratory gunfire echoed around the city's southern suburbs.
Unlike many Middle Eastern leaders whose speeches are riddled with idle rhetorical threats, Nasrallah is known for delivering on his promises, and Israel takes his threats seriously.
In 2006, he promised to take action to free Lebanese prisoners in Israel, and in July that year, Hezbollah guerrillas staged a daring cross-border raid that snatched two Israeli soldiers as bargaining chips.
The incident triggered a 34-day war between Israel and Hezbollah. Early in the fighting, Nasrallah said he would have "surprises" for Israel. Days later, his fighters hit an Israeli warship off the Lebanese Mediterranean coast with Chinese-made shore-to-sea C-802 missile, the first time the group had used the weapon. The war devastated south Lebanon, but Israel and Hezbollah have not negotiated a prisoner swap.
In Washington State Department spokesman Sean McCormack said threats such as Nasrallah's are alarming.
"As a general matter, those kinds of statements are quite concerning and they should be alarming to everyone," he said. "Quite clearly, Hezbollah has a long record of carrying out violent acts and acts of terrorism around the globe. You have a pathway of violence that stretches from Buenos Aires to Kuwait and a lot of places in between."
Iranian Foreign Minister Manouchehr Mottaki, who came to the funeral in Lebanon, offered condolences to the family and Mughniyeh's associates. Underlining Iran's close ties to Hezbollah, he sat between Mughniyeh's father and Hezbollah's deputy leader.
"He's not the first martyr, nor will he be the last on this path," Mottaki said, reading a statement of condolences from Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad with an interpreter translating into Arabic. "There will be hundreds and millions more" like him.
Mughniyeh's killing exacerbated tensions within Lebanon, a country already entrenched in a long-running political crisis that has left it without a president and with its parliament paralyzed.
As the funeral proceeded in south Beirut, across the city tens of thousands gathered in the main Martyrs' Square to commemorate the third anniversary of Hariri's assassination. The anti-Syrian rally appeared larger than the crowds at Mughniyeh's funeral, but it had been planned weeks in advance.
They braved rain and cold, waving Lebanese flags, pictures of Hariri and party banners.
Crowds also paid respects at Hariri's gravesite next to the downtown square as his brother, Shafik, unveiled a statue of the slain leader at the spot where he was killed, a few hundred yards away on a seaside boulevard. A flame was lit and a taped message broadcast from Hariri's widow, Nazek, who lives in Paris, urging against "falling into hatred" and calling on "unity to save the country."
In the square, the sound of beating drums mixed with cheers from the crowd as speakers lashed out at Syria.
Saad Hariri, leader of the parliamentary majority and the late premier's son, launched a scathing attack against the Syrian government. But he spared Hezbollah and its opposition allies, apparently in deference to the funeral. He even reached out to the opposition, saying: "Our hand will remain extended no matter what difficulties and conspiracies there are."
He also called for the election of a president in parliament, accusing Syria of obstructing the choice since November through its Lebanese allies.
When Hariri alluded to Mughniyeh's funeral on the other side of the city, the crowd booed.
"He fell under the eyes of the Syrian regime," he said of Mughniyeh, adding sarcastically: "God knows better."
Druse leader Walid Jumblatt, a sharp critic of Hezbollah, said the government will not succumb to opposition efforts to deliver Lebanon "to the Iranian-Syrian black evil world." Jumblatt accused the "treacherous regime" of Syrian President Bashar Assad of killing Mughniyeh.
Suleiman Abu Ezzedine, 35, holding an umbrella, said he left work to come to "remind that we are the majority. We want justice, truth and peace."
Hariri's supporters blame Syria for killing the prominent politician in a massive suicide truck bombing in Beirut and for a series of bombings and assassinations since. Hariri's killing ignited mass protests and international pressure that forced Syria to withdraw its army from Lebanon after 29 years of control.
The State Department said the anniversary was "a reminder to the world and the people of Lebanon about the sacrifices that many around the world and in Lebanon are making to build a strong democratic state." Spokesman McCormack said the U.S. supports those who want to build a Lebanon "independent and unfettered by foreign interference."
Authorities deployed some 8,000 troops and policemen to protect the Hariri rally. Armored vehicles took up positions on major intersections, and additional razor wire was brought in to separate the two sides. But there was no sign of violence by evening.
Amid fears of street violence, the U.S. Embassy encouraged Americans in Lebanon to limit all but essential travel Thursday.
Mughniyeh was on the FBI's list of most wanted terrorists, and the U.S. had offered a $5 million bounty for information leading to his arrest or conviction. He was indicted in the U.S. for his role in planning the 1985 hijacking of a TWA airliner in which a U.S. Navy diver was killed.
He was also accused of carrying out or directing a series of spectacular attacks, including engineering the suicide bombings of the U.S. Marines barracks and two embassy compounds in Beirut in 1983-84.
A total of about 260 Americans were killed in those attacks. Mughniyeh was also believed to be the mastermind behind the kidnappings of Americans and other Westerners in Beirut in the 1980s. Israel and Argentine prosecutors accused Mughniyeh of involvement in the 1992 and 1994 bombings of the Israeli embassy and a Jewish center in Buenos Aires, attacks that killed more than 100 people.
He vanished in the early 1990s, reportedly undergoing plastic surgery and moving between Lebanon, Syria and Iran on fake passports.
