Turkey’s Erdogan Calls on Muslims to Ascent Temple Mount in Defiance of Jerusalem “Occupation”

By JNS May 9, 2017 , 7:30 am

“Who devise evil things in their heart; every day do they stir up wars.” Psalms 140:3 (The Israel Bible™)

President of Turkey Recep Tayyip Erdogan (Facebook)

In an anti-Israel tirade Monday, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan called for thousands of Muslims to ascend the Temple Mount in Jerusalem.

Erdogan made the remarks at the opening of the Al-Quds Waqf International Forum in Istanbul, saying Turkey will not allow for Muslim prayers to be silenced in Jerusalem.

“Turkey attaches great importance to the justified resistance of the Palestinians and will not yield to Israeli attempts to change the status quo in the Al-Aqsa mosque,” said Erdogan, Turkey’s Daily Saba newspaper reported. “We as Muslims should visit the Al-Aqsa mosque more often, every day that Jerusalem is under occupation is an insult to us.”

Erdogan also criticized Israel for its “Muezzin Bill,” which is meant to limit the volume of Muslim calls to prayer during early morning hours.

“The fact that such an issue is even coming to the agenda is shameful,” Erodgan said. “Why are you afraid of the freedom of faith if you believe in your faith? I am now reminding Israeli administrators: If you believe in your faith, then why are you afraid of the sound of our prayers?”

The Turkish leader called Israel’s treatment of the Palestinians “racist and discriminatory,” and said Israel’s blockade of the Gaza Strip “has no place in humanity.”

The Israeli government was swift in condemning Erdogan’s comments as “baseless slander.”

“Anyone who systemically violates human rights in their own country, should not preach about morality to the only democracy in the region,” Israel’s Foreign Ministry said in a statement, adding, “Israel strictly adheres to protecting full freedom of worship for Jews, Muslims and Christians.”

Turkey and Israel last year agreed to normalize diplomatic ties following a six-year rift in their relationship, but Erdogan has a history of anti-Israel and anti-Semitic remarks.

In his comments at the conference in Istanbul, Erodgan also criticized promises by President Donald Trump to move the U.S. Embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, saying the plan is “extremely wrong” and should be “dropped from the agenda.”

UNESCO Makes Outrageous Move Denying Israel’s Sovereignty in Jerusalem – on Independence Day

By JNS May 3, 2017 , 8:30 am

“Fret not thyself because of evil-doers, neither be thou envious against them that work unrighteousness. For they shall soon wither like the grass, and fade as the green herb.” Psalms 37:1 (The Israel Bible™)

As millions of Israeli and diaspora Jews marked Israel’s 69th Independence Day, the United Nations cultural body UNESCO voted Tuesday to adopt a resolution denying Israeli sovereignty over Jerusalem.

The resolution—which passed in a 22-10 vote, with 23 abstentions—states that “all legislative and administrative measures and actions taken by Israel, the occupying Power, which have altered or purport to alter the character and status of the Holy City of Jerusalem, and in particular the ‘basic law’ on Jerusalem, are null and void and must be rescinded forthwith.”

The 10 countries voting against the resolution were the U.S., U.K., Italy, Netherlands, Lithuania, Greece, Paraguay, Ukraine, Togo and Germany. Among those voting in favor of the measure were Brazil, China, Egypt, Iran, Russia, South Africa and Sweden.

Italy was the only European Union country to publicly oppose the resolution ahead of the vote.

“Our opinion is very clear,” Italian Foreign Minister Angelino Alfano said. “UNESCO cannot be the place for a permanent ideological confrontation.”

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said Tuesday, “There is no nation in the world for whom Jerusalem is more holy than for the Jewish people,” adding that UNESCO “is trying to bury this truth. We will uphold it.”

Israel’s Ambassador to the U.N. Danny Danon called the resolution “distorted” and “shameful,” and said it will “not change the fact that Jerusalem is the eternal capital of the Jewish people.”

Last October, UNESCO passed two separate resolutions ignoring Jewish and Christian ties to Jerusalem’s holy sites.

Bible Prophecy Fulfilling At Alarming Speed: Turkey Is Declaring That They Are “The Beast Rising Out Of The Dead”

By Walid Shoebat

When I read the news from Erdogan’s demonic mouthpiece these days, the words seem to jump right out of prophecy, right out of scripture and without a doubt, what we will show here is prophecy fulfilling right before your very eyes. They even speak literally of Erdogan visiting the graves and reviving dead spirits. Here, read some shockers:

İbrahim Karagül, Erdogan’s favorite mouthpiece at Yeni Safak writes today:

“A new Turkey reality will stand out with the political identity of our past

What past?

That “past” is the wounded Ottoman Empire coming back to life.

And when scripture in John’s Apocalypse says: “And I saw another beast rising up out of the earth” it is speaking of a wounded empire in the process of resurrecting from burial since symbolically it was buried beneath the earth and then comes back to life, to resurrect, following the exact political, religious and expansionist system from its past glory.

Empires that die do not revive. Today there are no Egyptian Empire, Mughal Empire, Roman Empire, Grecian Empire, Persian Empire …

Such expression as a ‘rising beast’ (empire) is exactly what we see read from İbrahim Karagül, Erdogan’s favorite mouthpiece at Yeni Safak:

The rising period post-World War I has started now, just as it started after the Crusades, just as it started after the Mongolian invasion. This is the third rising period after the third shock.

So what constitutes this “third rising”? Karagül explains:

Turkey, which has been putting up a relentless fight against the global tutelage system, which has been displaying an example of “relentless resistance,” overcame the intervention of almost the entire world, “counter-revolution” scenarios and has now managed to draw a hard-to-intervene path for itself. This has thus triggered that “rising period,” the period of “Turkey’s becoming a star” that we have all been waiting for. The era of being trapped into Anatolia  is over.

This “trapped” beast “executed all the power of the former beast” “the first beast” “whose wound to death was healed”. The Ottomans are no longer “trapped in Anatolia” and will expand via warfare. It broke the shackles out of its abyss.

“Following this stage, it [Turkey] needs to make the utmost investment in power” writes Karagül hinting that the time for war is coming after the completion of this resurrection in 2023.

And what is this new empire representing? This former beast had seven dynasties that persecuted Christendom. No other power has persecuted the church more than the seven Islamic dynasties from Rashidun, Umayyad, Abbasid, Fatimid, Ayyubid, Almohad and ending at the Ottoman, which was wounded when the threat to Christendom ended by the fall of the Ottomans.

Now its all coming back. John even warned of its rising:

And I saw another beast coming up out of the earth, and he had two horns, like a lamb, and he spoke as a dragon. And he executed all the power of the former beast [the seven headed beast] in his sight; and he caused the earth, and them that dwell therein, to adore the first beast, whose wound to death was healed.

Hello. “To adore the first beast, whose wound to death was healed.”

It really can’t get any simpler than this. A Bethlehem shepherd would get it, but a scholar?

For how many centuries did these so-called Bible scholars muddy this prophecies. This rising threat “adores the first beast, whose wound to death was healed” and Karagül says: “A new Turkey reality will stand out with the political identity of our past” to heed the prior structure, the Ottoman Empire which according to Karagül has been healed.

Such re-arising from the dead is being depicted in bizarre hints. Karagül says that with Erdogan’s victory “Both Yavuz and Fatih are here now”.

Say what? Yavus and Fatih died nearly six centuries ago. How could they be “here now”?

Are Muslims all of the sudden into Hindu re-incanation?

Indeed. Turkey’s Sufi Islam is in to all sorts of dung. Erdogan now has their spirit in him so that when they behold Erdogan, they behold Muhammad, Allah and all the Muslim sages in the past.

Yavus is Yavuz Sultan Selim I and Fatih is Mehmed II commonly known as Mehmed the Conqueror who took the mantle from the Christian Roman Byzantine Empire in 1452.

Karagül makes it clear that when Erdogan visited the graves of the dead heroes, that he was sending a clear message that Erdogan obtained the spirits of the dead who will accompany Erdogan during his journey to Caliphatehood:

Now, Erdoğan is accompanied on this path by Yavuz, Fatih and Kanuni as much as by Necmettin Erbakan and Turgut Özal. The message is clear.

Erdogan is claimed to be literally “accompanied” by the spirits of these dead icons of Ottoman heroes.

They believe that they have not only revived an empire, but dead spirits.

Indeed it is a clear and utterly demonic revival of a dead empire which is coming after the seed of the woman (Mary’s children), the martyrs of Jesus Christ.

The April 16 “yes” decision that resulted from the referendum, Karagül says “is a history, a struggle for power” that says “who is like the beast, who can make war with him”. After all, according to Erdogan’s mouthpiece, this “rising period” started before “after the Crusade” war and after “the Mongolian invasion”.

This “third rising period” to us Christians is the “second rising period” of Islam’s seven caliphate dynasties coming as the “eighth”.

This “rising period” according to Erdogan will take six years from now to land at 2023.

To Karagül:

“There is no doubt that this step [April 16th victory] will take its place in the pages of history as ‘the day of great transformation’. In other words, a new history has begun.”

What is happening in Turkey debunks the modern biblical scholars who did not see it coming because they focused on Rome. Even the demon infested Karagül gets it:

“the European Union are beginning to collapse and new power axis are forming.”

With all the lousy interpretations of John’s Apocalypse saying that the Holy Spirit is what stops the beast from rising until He, the Holy Spirit, is “removed out of the way”.

What utter nonsense. The hatred of Rome generates faulty interpretations. The text was speaking of the mystery of iniquity which is already at work. He who now holdethdo hold is the very Pope of the Holy Roman Empire, which restrained Islam and heresy and it combated Islam. The haters of Rome therefore must be the heretic for they agree on one goal with the Muslim: the destruction of Rome.

This Christendom is slowly falling away and is being taken out of the way. One can even argue that the European Union and NATO which were designed to hold the rise of such tyrannies are slowly being taken out of the way with the praise by foolish crowds.

Europe is no longer “holy” and is turning into all sorts of syncretism, atheism, neopaganism and ultranationalism.

“The game-setters” according Karagül “did everything they can to ‘stop Turkey’” from coming out of the dead.

And in the Muslim world, there is jubilation. The Turkish Hurriet Daily reports:

“From Beirut to Tripoli, in many areas in the Middle East, Arabs have been campaigning on social media for Recep Tayyip Erdoğan,” Janna Jabbour told France 24.

“Why? Because for many in the Middle East, Recep Tayyip Erdoğan represents a hope to balance relations between the East and West. He is the leader to stand up to the West to say that the Middle East and Muslims are not subjugated by imperialist Westerners,” she added.

What can I tell you. I’ve been sounding the trumpet for decades. The Turks are coming.

Expert: Turkey’s president dreams of new Ottoman Empire

Joel Richardson sees NATO ally becoming ‘radical nationalist Islamist nation’

As Turkey’s president, Recep Tayyip Erdogan, continues to consolidate power in the formerly secular nation, one of the foremost experts on Middle East geopolitics is sounding a desperate warning.

Erdogan is just getting started.

“I’ve been saying this for 12 years,” said Joel Richardson, New York Times bestselling author of “The Islamic Antichrist” and “Mideast Beast.” “I’ve said for years: ‘Watch Turkey. Watch Turkey. It’s going to become a radical nationalist Islamist nation.’”

Richardson made the comments on a recent episode of the “Shaun Tabatt Show” as the author discussed his newest book, “Mystery Babylon.” Though Richardson believes Saudi Arabia and its city of Mecca is the real “Mystery Babylon,” he says Turkey is turning out to be an end times actor in its own right, and the tensions between the Sunni Islamic powers of Turkey and Saudi Arabia will shape the Middle East in the coming years.

Richardson’s warning of an Islamist, anti-democratic Turkey is now widely accepted among geopolitical analysts, many of whom are deeply concerned the NATO nation, once spoken of as a potential member of the European Union, is being systematically transformed into an anti-Western power.

“The silence of the world’s great democracies as the Middle East’s one great democracy slips toward authoritarianism has been deafening for Turks,” wrote Elliot Ackerman in Foreign Policy. Steven Cook suggested in the same publication Erdogan’s recent election victory means the end of modern Turkey itself, as Erdogan derives more inspiration from the Ottoman Empire than the secular, democratic values of Ataturk, the founder of the Turkish Republic.

As Dexter Filkins noted in the New Yorker, Erdogan was once viewed as a reformer in the Islamic world whom “every leader in the West wanted … to succeed.” Now, however, he has essentially brought “Turkish democracy to an end.”

Richardson, who has closely followed Middle East politics in his effort to spread the Gospel in the region and who chronicled rising Turkish nationalism in his film “End Times Eyewitness,” sees a deeper pattern unfolding as Erdogan continues his rise: something embedded within the pages of Scripture. He argues Turkey and Iran are on a path to conflict, and it will be Turkey that will eventually lead a coalition of Islamic nations against Israel.

“I believe Turkey is going to lead this coming Antichrist coalition,” he said.

However, though Saudi Arabia and Turkey are currently working together to confront the Shiite power of Iran, Richardson argues conflict between the two powers is inevitable.

“Why would Turkey be in conflict with Saudi Arabia?” he asked rhetorically. “They’re actually uniting right now against Iran. Well, the reason is because historically Turkey, the heart of the Ottoman Empire, controlled the Middle East for 500 years. … And they have a long memory. They believe that the Saudis, they just made up this kingdom, they have no history of being kings, they just said ‘we’re kings,’ the Turks feel as if they’ve taken their property.

“In many ways, Turkey and Saudi Arabia are the competing Sunni alpha dogs of the region. Egypt is sort of the intellectual head of the Sunni world … but in terms of who would lead, it’s really down to those two.”

Richardson ventured specific geopolitical predictions on the “Shaun Tabatt Show” for believers to watch for.

“I believe that Turkey will eventually conquer Iran, and Iran will come under the sway of this emerging Turkish neo-Ottoman empire,” he said.

“The Turks want to revive the empire that ruled the Middle East for 500 years. And I believe that in the midst of that, the Saudis, who are in league with the United States, are going to be a tremendous roadblock to Turkey re-establishing the historical caliphate, the Islamic form of government. And it’s for that reason that I think eventually we’ll see Turkey, and all the nations that come under her sway, eventually turn on Saudi Arabia, and as the prophecy says, devour her and burn her body with fire.”

Though Turkey is in the headlines today, Richardson claims it is Saudi Arabia that is ultimately at the heart of the spiritual challenge facing Christians, as it contains the city of Mecca. In his newest book, Richardson identifies “Mystery Babylon” as Mecca, which he calls the “greatest city of paganism in human history.”

“‘Babylon the Great’ is primarily two things,” explained Richardson. “It is a religious entity, a corrupt, religiously corrupting influence and an economic influence. Religiously speaking, Mecca is the greatest city of idolatry ever known, 1.26 billion people bowing five times a day toward that idol, known as the Kaaba, with its black meteorite embedded into the corner, shrouded with a black shroud in the same way that Muslim women are covered. You can look at the various worship that goes around the Kaaba … and it is dripping with paganism. The whole practice of circumambulation, thoroughly Hindu and Buddhist practices, you don’t see that anywhere in the Bible.”

Richardson argues ominous symbolism identified with Islam can even be found in the Bible.

“The very symbol of the crescent moon, of course,” Richardson said. “You can go back into the Bible when Gideon killed Zebah and Zalmunna, these pagan Midianite kings. What were they wearing? They were wearing crescent moon symbols.”

Richardson further explained the famous passage in Isaiah 14, which refers to a “morning star,” often is interpreted to be Lucifer as the “crescent moon.”

“Satan himself is referred to biblically by the crescent moon,” said Richardson. “This is the very symbol that Muslims worship on top of mosques, etc.”

As an increasing number of intelligence reports confirm, Saudi Arabia is funding extremists and terrorist movements around the world.

“When you look at al-Qaida, you look at ISIS, Boko Haram, Abu Sayyaf, Al-Shabaab, any of these radical groups, the Taliban … they find their ideological genesis in Saudi Arabia,” said Richardson. “They find their financing from Saudi Arabia. Saudi Arabia is the fountain, is the womb of all of this bloodshed we’re seeing all over the earth. Christians disappearing from the Middle East, being attacked in Europe. Where does it come from? It comes from Saudi Arabia.”

Ultimately, Richardson predicts Turkey will destroy Saudi Arabia. Yet the real threat to Christians, spiritually and physically, is not a particular state, but the religion of Islam itself.

“Islam is not simply just another false religion in a series,” Richardson said. “Islam is actually the mother of all false religions. It is the greatest numerically in terms of its impact. In human history, there has not been another false religion as large as Islam. But it is also in many ways that perfect Antichrist, the perfect counterfeit religion.”

World War 3 Will Set The Stage For Future Prophecies To Be Fulfilled – If Erdogan’s Taking His Place Upon Satan’s Throne In Pergamos, The Anti-Christ May Soon Be Revealed

Will The ‘Burden Of Damascus’ Soon Be Realized?

By Stefan Stanford – All News Pipeline – Live Free Or Die

The burden of Damascus. Behold, Damascus is taken away from being a city, and it shall be a ruinous heap. Isaiah 17:1

The lead story on the Drudge Report today over at The Sun reports Russia and Iran have pledged to respond to American aggression following air strikes in Syria if the US ‘crosses the red’ line again. The story has gone viral, republished in various capacities seemingly everywhere. However, according to the Kremlin in this brand new story from Sputnik News, they are unaware of such statements being made and apparently never made it themselves. Judging by the response Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov had about the viral story, the ‘red line’ story is totally ‘fake news’.

On Sunday, Reuters reported, citing a joint command center allegedly comprising the forces of Russia, Iran and militias supporting Assad that the recent US missile attack against the Syrian Ash Sha’irat airfield had crossed “red lines.” According to the media outlet, the allies would respond to any new aggression and increase its support for Damascus.

“We are not aware about that, we cannot confirm that and we do not know where Reuters got this and where these anonymous sources appeared from again,” Peskov told reporters.

With Peskov’s statement providing more proof for us that someone is pushing for ‘an incident’ in the Middle East, a powder keg that could go up effecting the entire world in a moment’s notice, we learn today that President Trump is allegedly pushing back against those within the ‘deep state’ pushing for a Syrian invasion. And while anybody in their right minds will want to avoid the world war 3 ‘apocalypse’ scenario such an invasion of Syria might bring to US soil, as Steve Quayle reminded us, there are those who NEED a WW3 apocalypse to bring in their ‘Mahdi’ and an ‘end of the world’ global Islamic state.

“Everybody needs to keep this in mind….in order for them to bring on the Muslim caliphate, those who will not allow any other religion to exist but Islam, there HAS TO BE nuclear war to bring in the Muslim ‘mahdi’. Those who believe in a Muslim caliphate will do ANYTHING to initiate World War 3.”

The new story over at the Jewish Journal is called “How Complicated Is Syria? Trump Just Helped ISIS” in which they publish the spaghetti chart seen above showing just how crazy and mixed up what is happening now in Syria and throughout the Middle East has become. Long known as the ‘powder keg’ that could kick off a global war, both Syria and Turkey also figure prominently in Biblical prophecy.

And as we arrive at a day where story title’s include, whether ‘real’ news or ‘fake’;

RUSSIA’S THREAT TO STRIKE BACK AT TRUMP

Kremlin tells U.S. it’s ‘one step from war’ as Trump warns he will hit Syria AGAIN after his attack on Russia’s ally Assad triggers fears of World War Three

we see why so many people are so concerned we may be living in the last days. As the Jewish Journal story reports, what is happening in the Middle East right now is so incredibly mixed up and complicated, we’ve reached a point in time where simply ‘an accident’, or ‘fake news’, could spark a global war.

We like our problems clean and direct. Good versus evil. Good fights evil. Good wins.

The Syrian regime of President Assad is evil. Its use of chemical weapons to murder children was barbaric. (ANP: whether ‘real’ news or ‘fake news’) It makes sense to not let him get away with it. So, you can argue that President Trump was right to order missile strikes against the regime.

This satisfying moral action, however, should not make us dumb down a complicated conflict. The dominant reality of the Syrian conflict today is that it represents evil vs evil. You can get rid of one evil only to see something worse replace it.

On one side of the conflict, you have the Assad regime, supported by Iran, Russia and Hezbollah. A few years ago, Assad was on life support. Now, with his strong partners, he’s made a comeback.

On the other side of the conflict are anti-regime rebel groups who fight each other as much as they fight the Assad regime.

The largest is ISIS, with 25,000 to 80,000 fighters. ISIS has become the enemy par excellence in the Western world. Trump has talked incessantly about destroying them. Now consider this: By striking Assad, Trump ended up helping ISIS.

Complicated enough?

The new story over at CBN asks if what is happening now in Syria is fulfilling Biblical prophecy. Claiming both Isaiah 17 and Jeremiah 49 could be playing out before our eyes, they report headlines seen in news stories of today can be seen in Biblical verses from long ago. One recent such example comes to us from the Daily Mail titled “Prepare For Real War: Russia and Iran Warn Trump They Will Retaliate Militarily Against US If It Crosses Their ‘Red Line’ Again With Attacks On Assad In Syria” which clearly reminded them of Ezekiel 38-39 and the War of Gog and Magog (even though that story could very well be ‘FAKE NEWS’).:

“We’re watching Damascus unravel…is that the prelude to the completion of those prophesies?” Joel Rosenberg rhetorically asked, pointing back to Isaiah and Jeremiah, which both say that the city will be “destroyed.” “We don’t know, but Damascus is the oldest continuously inhabited city on the planet…so the fact that it is coming apart is quite extraordinary.”

“The Hebrew prophet Ezekiel wrote 2,500 years ago that in the ‘last days’ of history, Russia and Iran will form a military alliance to attack Israel from the north,” Rosenberg also wrote. “Bible scholars refer to this eschatological conflict, described in Ezekiel 38–39, as the ‘War of Gog & Magog.’”

He added, “Are these sudden and dramatic moves by Moscow and Tehran…simply coincidental, or [do they] have prophetic implications?”

According to this story from CBN and Revelation 2:12, the ‘seat of Satan’ lies in Pergamum in what is now Turkey. Also the home to some of the greatest inventors and innovators of that time which gave birth to ‘advanced’ technologies, there was also a very dark side to that region that lived on for thousands of years. Through the massacre of nearly 2 million  Armenian Christians by the then Ottoman Empire in the year 1915, their war upon Christianity carries on today.

At the end of the first century, Pergamum was a thriving city. So why does the book of Revelation call it the dwelling place of Satan? The answer lies in the ruins of the city’s temples.

“On one side, it was a very beautiful city,” says Renner. “But on the flip side, it was one of the darkest, eeriest cities in the whole Roman Empire.”

The people of Pergamum were known as the “Temple-keepers of Asia.” The city had three temples dedicated to the worship of the Roman emperor, another for the goddess Athena, and the Great Altar of Zeus, the king of the Greek gods. Many scholars believe this altar is the “Throne of Satan” mentioned in the book of Revelation.

“That word ‘throne’ was used in a personal private residence, and it was a chair for the lord of the house, the master of the house,” says Renner. “The very fact that Jesus would use this word means that Satan felt at home there. He sat on a throne there. It was his territory. He was the master of that house.”

According to this September 1st of 2016 story from Shoebat, Turkey’s henchman dictator Recep Tayyip Erdogan plans on rebuilding the ‘temple of Zeus’, that which is also believed to be ‘Satan’s throne’ according to this CBN story. As this July 2016 story from Fox News reports, Turkey and Erdogan are ‘the real caliph’, or so he’d like to think. Claiming that there are ‘no moderate Muslims’ while calling for a return of a global Muslim society to surpass the Ottoman Empire, this September 2016 story from WND claims Turkey will also be the source of the anti-Christ, an ominous development in the former Ottoman Empire they report. From Shoebat.:

Erdogan is telling everyone – including his people – that he is the savior of the Muslim world. 

A Caliphate will arise out of Turkey and the Gog of Turkey will portray himself as the re-incarnation of Muhammad, Saladin and the Ottoman Sulaiman Al-Qanuni (Sulaiman the law-giver).

 Unlike western media, which is in collective denial, the “Turkish Model” is today admired in all Muslim nations. Millions in the Muslim world are calling for Erdogan to lead them with his modernistic Islamist model. With the “Turkish Model”, Turkey and the Muslims will deceive the West into thinking that at least “moderate” Islam is better than fundamentalism.

The Antichrist is said to rule from Pergamus (Revelation 2:12-13), which Christ proclaimed would be the future seat of Satan. This is on the sides of the northern lands (Asia Minor / Turkey). In 2014 and beyond, Turkey will be spreading its tentacles throughout the Muslim nations. Eventually Egyptians, Libyans, Tunisians, Algerians, Moroccans, Mauritanians, Sudanese, Somalis, Syrians, Pakistanis, Azerbaijanis, Uzbeks, Turkmens will all be looking at Turkey’s Islamist model and pledging allegiance to the New Ottoman Empire.

With Turkey one neighbor to Syria, Erdogan and Turkey clearly are among those who stand to benefit the most should the US attempt to depose Assad, possibly quite quickly leading to repercussion from Russia or Iran and setting in motion a series of events which leads to World War 3, just as those seeking a global Islamic state wants there to be. In fact, according to this story from Russia Insider, Turkey should be investigated for the recent chemical attacks in Syria having previously provided the poison gas used in the 2013 proven false flag attack.

In the first video below, videographer The Watchman has put together an excellent compilation of recent videos which he says proves the ‘stage setting’ is now taking place for future Biblical prophecy to be fulfilled. As we hear in the 2nd and 3rd videos featuring former Congressman Dennis Kucinich and current Congressman Marco Rubio, there is no agreement on who ISIS is, who the Syrian rebels are nor who was responsible for the recent chemical attack with Rubio actually claiming ISIS is loyal to Bashar Assad. The final video below examines Erdogan’s quest for caliph and why it’s actually he and his Islamo-fascist dictatorship in Turkey who are a much bigger threat to the West than Syria and Assad.

With a deadly World War 3 now possibly ahead based upon possible lies, we’ll take a deeper look tomorrow at the unfolding ‘war upon Christianity’, the secrecy behind many Western leaders and their embracing of Islam and what that might mean for the Trump administration to possibly have ‘Islamic, sharia-1st sleepers’ left over from the Obama administration in various capacities within his administration. Also scattered throughout Congress and Washington DC as well as all across Western government’s now, we see why some people actually WANT a war with Russia, despite the fact that it could lead to global nuclear annihilation – which is exactly what they want and need.

Very ominous warning’ from Turkish strongman just ‘a preview’

Radical Muslims now ‘view Europe as an extension of their territory’

Published: 13 hours ago

Paul Bremmer

Turkish citizens living in Europe are heading to the polls this week to vote on a referendum calling for expanded powers for Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan.

Members of Turkish expatriate communities in Germany, France, Austria, Denmark and Switzerland are able to cast their ballots between March 27 and April 9 at Turkish consulates.

When Turkish ministers from the ruling Justice and Development Party infamously tried to campaign for the referendum in Germany and the Netherlands, officials in those countries barred them from doing so, citing security concerns.

The moves prompted Erdogan to fly into a rage and declare: “If Europe continues this way, no European in any part of the world can walk safely on the streets. Europe will be damaged by this.”

Germany might have been able to brush aside the threat if it weren’t home to a sizable Turkish population. Roughly 3.7 percent of the country’s 82 million residents are Turks, and 1.4 million of those Turks are eligible to vote in the referendum.

Philip Haney, a former Customs and Border Protection officer who co-authored “See Something, Say Nothing: A Homeland Security Officer Exposes the Government’s Submission to Jihad,” said it’s an ominous sign for Europe that Turkish ministers felt the need to go into European countries to campaign for a Turkish referendum in front of Europe’s large Turkish population.

“It tells me they view Europe as an extension of their territory, of their sovereignty, of their influence,” Haney told WND. “This is a preview of what we can expect in the time ahead: an inordinate amount of malevolent influence exerted by rulers of countries, in this case in the Middle East, interfering with the sovereign authority of countries in Europe directly, no pretense.”

Erdogan’s threats amount to nothing less than a breach of European sovereignty, in Haney’s view. He noted German and Dutch leaders had the right, as leaders of sovereign nations, to deny entry to the Turkish ministers if they believed their presence would threaten public security.

“Erdogan’s saying that non-Muslim countries don’t have sovereign rights,” Haney said. “He’s saying, ‘If you do something we don’t like, there might be war.’”

Unfortunately, because there are so many Turks living in Europe, European leaders have no choice but to take Turkey’s threats seriously, according to Haney.

“Look what happened when these countries said, ‘No, no campaigning for Turkish leaders in our country.’ What happened?” Haney asked rhetorically. “They had riots.

“These people are supposedly the equivalent of lawful permanent residents, green-card holders. They’re supposed to be pledging allegiance to the countries that they’re going to, not making a fifth column for Turkey, and that’s why they didn’t let the Turkish ministers in. And Erdogan is threatening, ‘Look, this is what we can do. We can have riots in your cities. One word from me and they will break out into the streets.’ A very ominous warning.”

Michael Maloof, a former senior security policy analyst in the office of the secretary of defense, agreed Europe must take Erdogan very seriously because of the large Turkish diaspora residing in Europe.

“What happened was that by preventing the Turkish leaders from coming in, it got the Turkish diaspora – those are the expatriates living in Europe – to rise up to defend Erdogan in effect,” Maloof told WND.

Maloof, author of “A Nation Forsaken,” believes Germany and the Netherlands should have allowed the Turkish ministers into their countries to campaign. He admitted there was a high prospect of rioting, and the European countries probably made their decision more out of security concerns than anti-Turkish animus, but he still believes the countries could help defuse tensions by allowing the ministers in.

“They should allow the speakers to come in to show that they are forthcoming, to show that democracy is still prevalent,” Maloof suggested. “The Netherlands and Germany basically showed the limitation on their democracy, and you’re dealing with diplomats from another country, and they’re supposed to be a member of NATO. I think the decision should have been to allow them to come in, just provide security, insist that there be security and peaceful gatherings, like we do here, and allow them to speak.

But the Dutch and the Germans basically panicked, in my opinion.”

Maloof said the fundamental problem is that Europe’s large Turkish communities, rather than assimilating into their host societies, remain isolated.

“Turks have never been integrated into the German society or the European society simply because Europeans are fundamentally xenophobic,” Maloof declared. “They believe in homogeneous countries. We saw that as a result of World War II. They’re highly prejudiced against outsiders, and as long as these ethnicities stay within their own enclaves, then the rest of Europe is happy until they start pouring out into the street. And that isolation is what has helped contribute to the rising problem that we’re seeing in Europe of Islamic radicalism.”

Maloof said the social problem has been years in the making, but Europeans have done nothing about it.

“It isn’t an economic issue,” he insisted. “It’s the isolation in the communities – that’s where professional people get radicalized and take off, and you have many Turks and other ethnicities in Europe that have done well economically. They haven’t necessarily assimilated, however, into the economy like we have here in the United States.”

In addition to threatening European safety, Erdogan also called Turks the “future of Europe” and called on his countrymen living on the continent to have many children as an act of revenge against the West.

“Go live in better neighborhoods,” the president implored. “Drive the best cars. Live in the best houses. Make not three, but five children. Because you are the future of Europe. That will be the best response to the injustices against you.”

Here Erdogan was threatening civilization jihad – the transformation of a non-Muslim society from within so it may eventually be subverted and brought under Islamic law, according to Haney. He pointed out civilization jihad is the ultimate goal of the Muslim Brotherhood in North America, as laid out in the group’s 1991 “Explanatory Memorandum on the General Strategic Goal for the Brotherhood in North America.”

Although various Muslim clerics have threatened jihad, either violent or civilizational, over the years, Haney does not recall an Islamic head of state openly threatening conflict with the West in his lifetime.

Perhaps Erdogan is trying to position himself as the leader of the worldwide Muslim community, Haney suggested. The Turkish president has already earned that blessing from Yusuf al-Qaradawi, the top cleric and spiritual leader of the Muslim Brotherhood. Speaking at a festival last April, Qaradawi referred to Erdogan as “Sultan,” saying Ottoman sultans were always the best defenders of Islam, and the world’s 1.7 billion Muslims should give Erdogan their allegiance.

Qaradawi declared: “Who can make war with Sultan Recep Tayyip Erdogan? He became the Muslim world’s defender fighting in the name of Islam and the Quran and Shariah. He speaks standing firm in the faces of tyrants to tell them NO!”

Haney noted the Quran seems to condone the destruction of national borders, which is essentially what Erdogan has threatened to do. Sura 13, verse 41 and Sura 21, verse 44 both speak of Allah reducing the borders of non-Muslim nations.

“My point is that Erdogan’s backed by the international Muslim Brotherhood in what he’s doing, and it’s compliant with Shariah law,” Haney said. “Erdogan is basically pushing out his influence with the authorization of well-known, global-level Muslim Brotherhood leaders, and it all complies with the Quran.”

Haney thinks that just as the U.S. needs to pause and reevaluate whether its immigration policy is threatening public safety, Europe should step back and consider whether Turkey can be a trusted EU partner at this point.

“Erdogan doesn’t show any signs of going towards democracy; he’s showing signs of going toward a dictatorship, so just on that alone if they want to maintain the appearance of democratic forms of government, it should put them at pause,” he said.

Maloof, for his part, thinks Erdogan has doomed Turkey’s decades-long bid to join the European Union. He does not believe the Turkish president is gaining any stature in the eyes of the international community by threatening Europe.

“I think people are really fearful of him. They don’t know what he wants to do, plus he’s running against both the U.S. and Russian direction in Syria right now by going after the Kurds, and the Kurds are helping both the Russians and the U.S. in fighting ISIS in Syria,” Maloof said. “So I think he’s already isolated himself pretty much from the EU, but he stands an increasing chance of doing the same toward Russia and the U.S.”

Maloof said Erdogan’s desire to go after the Kurds could rip his country apart.

“It could lead to a civil war; I think it could lead to a civil war inside of Turkey the way he’s progressing right now,” Maloof predicted.

“I think that’s where it’s heading ultimately, because the Kurds are 20 percent of the population, plus he has the Alawite population inside of Turkey. That’s also a large minority inside of Turkey from Syria. So if they all gang up on him, he’s going to have some real issues. Plus, he’s not confident that he has the full support of the military, and the Gulen movement internally has also been able to penetrate a lot of the political and economic fabric of the country to the point that he really doesn’t know who to trust at this point.”

Erdogan Has Just Declared He Intends To Have Muslims Invade Christian Europe In The Future And That Turkey Will Build Nuclear Bombs To Soon Attack The Christian West To Subjugate The Church

By Shoebat Foundation on March 19, 2017 in Featured, Highlight, Media

We hear of Turkey’s Mufti calling for Turkey to go nuclear. Erdogan is also sounding some alarm warning Europe regarding its Muslim headscarf ban that the day of Europe’s reckoning with Turkey will soon come to pass. Erdogan is reacting to the ban of headscarfs and to Israel banning mosques from blasting the call to prayer in Jerusalem.

As a response to all this, Hayrettin Karaman, President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan’s main Fatwa giver said that Turkey should acquire weapons of mass destruction (WMDs) including “nuclear arms” to stand up against the West. Karaman was not giving his instruction to build just few nuclear bombs but to match the West’s ability:

“Let’s invent [these WMDs], balance [the West] out, but let’s not use weapons of mass destruction unless it is necessary; the way to not resort [to WMDs] is to possess weapons that are equal to or more powerful than the ones the enemy has.”

Also, president Recep Tayyip Erdoğan has called on Turkish citizens living in Europe to have five children – two more than his usual calls to Turks in the homeland – in a bid to multiply their presence in the continent so that they will be the “future of Europe.”

“I am calling out to my citizens, my brothers and sisters in Europe,” Erdoğan said at a rally in the Central Anatolian province of Eskişehir on March 17. “Have not just three but five children.”

Erdogan hints that Muslims will soon occupy Europe:

“The place in which you are living and working is now your homeland and new motherland. Stake a claim to it. Open more businesses, enroll your children in better schools, make your family live in better neighborhoods, drive the best cars, live in the most beautiful houses”

“That’s because you [the Muslim Turks] are the future of Europe. It will be the best answer to the vulgarism, antagonism, and injustice made against you.”

This is the flood of Islam from the Red Dragon coming after Christendom (Revelation 12).

The West is “an enemy” Karaman declared and Turkey wants to face Europe with enough armament for a future war and Karaman says that Turkey needs to move fast:

“We need to consider producing these [WMDs] rather than purchasing them, without losing any time and with no regard to the words [of caution] and hindrance from the West”.

Christians need to focus, the rhetoric coming out of Turkey is not secular. In the online post Karaman accused “Christian” countries in the West of egotism and racism – stating the bad attitude towards Turkey has been “accelerated”.

Who is being blamed are the Christians.

President Erdogan is in the midst of a deep fallout with European nations including Germany and the Netherlands after both countries banned rallies and kicked out his ministers who had sworn to campaign for his referendum.

All this is catapulting Turkey’s move into increasing its military capabilities wanting to unite with the Muslim world for a showdown, not just against Israel, but Europe as well. From Chad and Sudan (biblical Cush) to Tunisia (biblical Phut) we see Turkey’s alliances in military exercises:

Turkey is also purging all dissent from government. Karaman said recently that the “no” voters in an April 16 referendum that will switch Turkey to an executive presidency are opponents of Islam.

These are no small issues. It was after all, Karaman, who called upon Erdogan to build nuclear bombs this week, he also was the one who stated that Erdogan will rule as Caliph.

The Muslim Antichrist Is Rising Up

Major Muslim Leaders Are Declaring The Coming Of A Divine Leader Who Will Lead An Islamic Empire, The Islamic Antichrist Will Declare Himself To Be God And War Against Christendom

By Shoebat Foundation on February 26, 2017 in Featured, General, Highlight

By Walid Shoebat (Shoebat Sunday Special)

As the date of the Turkish constitutional referendum to make Erdoğan supreme ruler approaches, each day continues to come with surprises. This time its a prophecy predicted by MP Şevki Yılmaz, a columnist for Erdoğan’s pro-government mouthpiece Yeni Akit TV. It caused quite a stir amongst secularists watching Yilmaz switch from a politician/columnist to false prophet uttering some strange aberrations.

“Whatever the ‘no’ camp does, the ‘yes’ camp will emerge victorious in the referendum on April 16 next month” he predicted Turkey’s switch to an executive presidency claiming that his prediction stems from a prophecy by Muhammad himself. Yilmaz continued:

“… all oppressed people on earth needs Turkey … Turkey has become ‘the house of Allah’ while Turks will become [the war-like ] Ababeel”.

It was a message of mystery to the secular media, but a clear message to the Muslim Sufi world. These can comprehend that Turkey will become the temple of Allah who will be Erdoğan, while the Turks will transfer to becoming these warrior “Ababeel” birds defending Erdoğan’s temple.

Yılmaz kicked off his utterances weeping and lamenting the loss of Abdulhamid II, the last Caliph of Islam prophesying that the outcome of the referendum on April 16 next month will fulfill a hadith:

“The Hadith by prophet Muhammad is about to be fulfilled with victory on April 16”.

A portion of the clip was translated by Turkish Minute:

The “head” according to Yilmaz, is to be revived and the wound healed. While the above video is but a small clip, Shoebat.com was able to review the whole interview where Yilmaz was weeping in front of the camera saying: “Those who want to take Turkey back [to secularism], neither their vassals, nor their lives can save them.” “Turkey will become Beit-u-Allah. On April 16, vote ‘YES’ to the referendum means to be an Ababeel bird in Beit-u-Allah” said Yilmaz.

Allow me to explain all this. Beit-u-Allah is none other than the Kaaba, the House of Allah himself. But this is located in Saudi Arabia. Yilmaz is now saying that it will be symbolically or even literally re-stationed in Turkey. “Türkiye gitti mi Beytullah gider” he said in Turkish, which literally means: “Yes, Beit-u-Allah goes to Turkey”.

This goes back to what we said years ago: that the Kaaba will be transferred from Mecca to the leader of the Islamic world. Instead of Muslims bowing towards Mecca, they will bow towards their Mahdi. This is in accordance to the Sufi Islamic religion. Unlike the Wahhabi school of Islam, with all of its mechanical religion, the Sufis don’t mind being extremely charismatic, they don’t mind openly worshipping human beings. In the Sufi tradition there is the belief that one can reach a state of godhood, in which the Sufi mystic can declare, “I am god,” and his followers bow down to him as a human incarnation of the Kaaba.

Jalal al-Din Rumi, by far the most prestigious sufi in Islam’s entire history, explained this concept as such:

Remember the famous utterance of al-Hallaj, “I am God.” People think that to say “I am God” is a claim of great pretense and spiritual arrogance. It is actually a claim of extreme humility. “I am God” means “I do not exist.” He is all, everything is He, existence is God’s alone. I am without existence, pure non-existence. I am nothing.” “I am God” is not a claim of great pretension, it is a claim of extreme humility. There is more humility in this than any supposed claim to greatness, but people do not understand the inner meaning. When a man acknowledges his servitude to God, he is aware of his being a servant. He may see himself as a devoted servant of God, but he still sees himself and his own actions as apart from the one reality of God. He is not drowned in the Ocean of Divine Unity. Drowned is he in whom there is not separate motion or mobility. Drowned is he whose movement is the movement of the water. And so it is with the enlightenment ones, those who declares, “I am God.” Anyone who says “I am the servant of God” asserts the reality of two existences, one for himself and the other for God. But he who says “I am God” — and has realized the deepest levels of unity within his being — has seen through the illusion of his existence. He knows from the experience of unity that his own separate existence is nothing but an illusion. Knowing that, he casts its former selfhood upon the winds of oblivion. (Rumi, Hearts bear witness one to another, in The Complete Discourses of Jalal al-Din Rumi, discourse 11, p. 75, ed. Louis Rogers)

Rumi recounts a story in which a sufi sheikh named Mawlana Baha’ al-Haqq wa’l-Din, becomes the light of God and “the soul of the Kiblah” (the Ka’ba’s Black Stone in Mecca) to which Muslim pray. Rumi relates:

The Shaikh had lost all ego-consciousness and had long since passed away from the sense of personal identity. Having been consumed in the Light of God, his self no longer remained. This is the meaning of the prophetic saying, “Die before you die.” The Shaikh had become the Light of God. And whoever turns his back on the Light of God to face the wall of the prayer niche has assuredly turned his back on Mecca, since God’s Light is the soul of the Kiblah [the Ka’bah] (Rumi, Service done for God is proof of divine favor, in The Complete Discourses of Jalal al-Din Rumi, discourse 3, p. 17, ed. Louis Rogers)

As we wrote back in 2014 in regards to this statement by Rumi:

This is quite telling; what its saying is that the sheikh became the Kiblah, or the person to whom Muslims would pray toward. Therefore, an Antichrist Muslim leader in Turkey, who is a practicing sufi, can declare that he is the light of God, and Muslims from all over the world will pray towards him; he will become the new Kiblah [direction of prayer as in the Kaaba], with the multitudes of Muslims praying to his direction.

Mind you, Yilmaz is no quack, which is why this was so shocking to many. He was the son of the former Karamürsel Mufti Ali Efendi. In 1982, the European National Vision Organization appointed him as the Austrian Regional Director and he served as Deputy Chairperson of the European National Vision Organization and served in The Welfare Party when it became the second party in Turkey.

Anyone can see the shocking response by secular Turks by clicking here when Yilmaz was participating in the National Resurrection Program on Akit TV this Wednesday to only proclaim “Yes, Beit-u-Allah goes to Turkey” and “On the 16th of April, it means to be an Ababeel Bird in Beit-u-Allah“?

Turkey becoming “Beit-u-Allah,” (the House of Allah) while these flying “Ababeel” creatures protecting and defending Erdoğan needs an interpreter which only the seasoned Muslim Sufi understands what this prophecy packs. This would mean that Erdoğan has become Allah himself and Turkey will become his temple (house) at some point in time after April 16th.

The Ababeel stems from when the birds of Ababeel defended the Kaaba from when the Christian king Abraha came with complete war equipment, armour, and the elephants to knock down the Kaaba (Beit-u-Allah or the House of Allah) in Mecca before Islam. The Christian Abraha was convinced that he will easily be able to destroy the Kaaba, but what happens next, according to Muslim legend in the Quran, was that Allah’s help arrived according to the Koran in Sura Al-Fil (The Elephant) where Allah sent “Birds of Ababeel to throw stones of Sejjil” on the elephants and the army, which led to their defeat and destruction.

In other words, the coup against Erdoğan’s efforts last year’s July 15th, only had Erdoğan flying around Istanbul like the Ababeel bird in victory and now all of Turkey must say “yes” to Erdoğan’s referendum so they too can join together to become the Ababeel flying birds, the protectors of Erdoğan who is Allah himself, and Turkey then becomes Erdoğan’s temple.

The Hadith, Yılmaz was referring to, was expressed by Erdoğan in a speech from May 30th last year, saying in classical Arabic “Latuftahhanna al-Qustantiniyyeh” (Constantinople will be conquered). Listen at 00:33:

Erdoğan cited revelations from the Quran and the Hadith in classical Arabic in which the Prophet of Islam, Muhammad predicted “Constantinople will be conquered, the best prince is its prince and the best army is that army”.

The prophecy is when Muslims in end-times fight the west and then they “will conquer Constantinople” after which Rome will also be conquered by Turkey’s “prince” (the Caliph) just as Daniel predicted Antichrist will be called “prince”.

According to history Constantinople has already been conquered by the Ottomans, but the prophecy in Islam has a dual-fulfillment, which according to Erdoğan, needs to be re-conquered from the westernized secularists. To Erdoğan, there is an apocalyptic re-fulfillment of when Muhammad II the Conqueror, conquered Constantinople, which Erdoğan now becomes this revived conqueror who took it from western secularism.

On his Facebook, Yılmaz even displays the symbol of this Muslim invasion, in an image of a ship. The hull of the ship is the shape of a Muslim sword pointed Westwards (left) towards Europe, where the sword spells out Bismillah (In the Name of Allah), the mark of Islam to be enforced on all of Europe. This is the mark “Bismillah” we have been speaking about for two decades.

The two sails (also in the shape of swords) stems from the Turkish Tughra which represent the Black Sea and the Mediterranean Sea, the two are to be ruled and protected by the Ottomans, which the Tughra Analysis and Form explains the emblem represents a ship “going westward to invade and conquer the west.”

So according to Yilmaz, Erdoğan’s referendum is to catapult Erdoğan as a Caliph who becomes Allah himself, and Turkey which sits on the two seas, then becomes Erdoğan’s temple, his throne, ruling the Black Sea and the Mediterranean Sea.

Even God addresses the Antichrist as such:

“ … In the pride of your heart you say, “I am a god; I sit on the throne of a god in the heart of the seas [Black Sea and the Mediterranean Sea] But you are a mere mortal and not a god, though you think you are as wise as a god. Are you wiser than Daniel? … (Ezekiel 28:1-3)

Erdoğan says that the conquerer of Constantinople will become “the best prince” and the Caliph in Islam is “the prince of the faithful”. Shoebat.com explains these prophecies here and how Antichrist is called “prince”.

Now that Turkey is finished with the July 15th coup and it is turning fully Islamist, it becomes obvious that “allegiance” will be required from all Turkish citizens were one has to conform with Islamist uniformity. This will also include the dreaded Mark of the Beast as you will see that Turkey’s society is being set up for some shocking realities where the Bismillah (in the name of Allah) and the Crescent are mandated to becoming permanent symbols for Erdogan’s Islamists movement.

As a matter of fact, we have etched this prior to its happening. Over a decade ago, in 2005 in my book Why I Left Jihad (page 319-326) and for the first time in history, I laid out my discovery to what flavors will encompass this Mark of The Beast. I even repeated it in my other book God’s War on Terror in 2010. In these books I suggested that the Arabic Bismillah as well as the red dragon’s Crescent symbol will be some of the flavors that compose the mark which gives allegiance to Antichrist.

So many laughed off my proposal sighting that because I used the wrong codex that this makes my theory null-and-void. This while no one denied that the Greek Stigma and Xi does exactly read in Arabic the word Bismillah while the Chi (X) is the symbol of Islam’s two crossed swords.

On the right: Bismillah with two swords On the left: the letters translated to 666.

Now that Bismillah (Arabic for In the name of Allah) has become the symbol of July 15th Islamist takeover in Turkey and is seen in their symbolism even a ship in a sword-shaped written Bismillah, this theory becomes more plausible. Here watch and read the words in this chant in Turkey marking this historic transformation:

The story of Ababeel and such symbolism has another meaning: the defeat of Christianity. In the legend, Ababeel threw Sejjil, the fiery missiles from Allah which these Ababeel, the heavenly birds, delivered them and Abraha Al-Ashram‘s elephants, the tanks of the day were destroyed by Allah’s Sejjil. Abraha was a zealous Christian ruler of Yemen, which was subject to the Kingdom of Aksum of Ethiopia, marched upon the Kaaba with a large army, which included war elephants, intending to demolish the Kaaba. However, the Muslim legend by the Arabs has the story that the lead elephant was Muslim, known as Mahmud, is said to have stopped at the boundary around Mecca, and refused to enter.

While such detail is legend, it has been theorized by historians that an epidemic such as by smallpox could have caused such a failed invasion of Mecca. The war was launched as a campaign to destroy Makkah in Arabia and end the pilgrim to the Kaaba and divert Arab worshippers instead towards Christian Yemen at the time, which had a large church built by Abraha.

And today, Turkey becoming the House of Allah (Erdoğan is Allah) and that all the attempts to divert Turkey towards the West (Christianity) will fail according to this false prophet.

This forced replacement of holy places from Mecca to Turkey is similar to what Iran wants to do proclaiming Karbala over Mecca. Sejjil is the name of Iran’s baby pet missile. Iran’s naming their missile, Sejjil, is to succeed where Abraha failed to destroy the Kaaba. Iran also sends a prophetic message to Arabia that your Kaaba will be no more and that they will fulfill where Abraha failed.

But Yılmaz says that Turkey will become the house of the temple of Allah, that Erdoğan is now Allah. If the Kaaba is destroyed then this would not matter.

This Sejjil rock thrown by the Ababeel birds, became a symbol of Arabia’s pride, Karballah wants to become Iran’s pride and now Erdoğan wants Turkey to become Islam’s pride.

Yılmaz’s words are easily interpreted “All oppressed geography needs Turkey. Turkey will be the home now, it is being tried.”

The Mahdi responds to all the needy of all clay nations (oppressed geography) and weak Muslim nations which soon will be under the “Ummah’s Mother” as Yilmaz calls it. Ummah is global Islam and Turkey will be the mother of all Muslims where Erdoğan will be Caliph.

“Underlining that a saying of the Prophet Muhammad points out that the “yes” votes will win in the referendum,” Yılmaz noted that “good news was promised that Allah decided to nominate Turkey to be the mother of humankind”.

“… there is a hadith, there is good news promised that tells how [yes votes] will emerge with a victory in the April 16 [referendum]… This is destiny. Allah has decided to nominate Turkey to be the mother of humankind. No one can stop it,” he said.

Turkey will hold a referendum on a constitutional amendment package on April 16 to switch from a parliamentary system of governance to an executive presidency that will enormously expand the powers of President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan. This is not some secular decision. Hayrettin Karaman, Erdoğan’s main Fatwa giver declared what we were saying all along they will do; that Erdogan will soon become the Caliph for all Muslims where he wrote:

“During the debate on the presidential system, here is what everyone must do so while taking into account the direction of the world’s national interest and the future of the country and not focus on the party or a particular person. What this [presidential system] looks like is the Islamic caliphate system in terms of its mechanism. In this system the people choose the leader,  the Prince, and then all will pledge the Bay’ah [allegiance] and then the chosen  president appoints the high government bureaucracy and he cannot interfere in the judiciary where the Committee will audit legislation independent of the president. ” Hayrettin Karaman

Everyone in Turkey will then give allegiance to Erdogan. Several members of ruling Justice and Development Party (AKP), pro-Erdoğan columnists and people in government circles have loudly voiced that Erdoğan will be the caliph of the Muslim world after Turkey implements the executive presidency

Minister Offers Turkey Trade: Elephants for Ancient Hebrew Carving Proving Biblical Account of King Hezekiah

By Adam Eliyahu Berkowitz February 23, 2017 , 1:30 pm

“Now the rest of the acts of Chizkiyahu, and all his might, and how he made the pool, and the conduit, and brought water into the city, are they not written in the book of the chronicles of the kings of Yehuda?” II Kings 20:20 (The Israel Bible™)

Facsimile of the Siloam Hebrew inscription. (Wikimedia Commons)

An Israeli minister on an official trip to Turkey tried to strike an unusual bargain with a Turkish official: two Sabra elephants for the return of a priceless Israeli artifact dating back to Biblical times that has been languishing in a Turkish museum for almost 150 years.

Miri Regev, Israel’s Minister of Culture and Sport, was in Gaziantep accompanying an Israeli basketball team for their match against a Turkish team. The day after the game, Regev had an informal meeting with the mayor of the city, Fatma Sahin. During the conversation, Sahin mentioned that the city’s zoo was suffering from a pachyderm problem: they only had one elephant and wanted more.

The Turkish mayor said jokingly, “We’re willing to work for it.”

A native Israeli used to bargaining in the open-air shuk, Regev jumped on the opportunity. Via a translator, she said to Sahin, “We’ll make a deal. We’ll give them two elephants, and they’ll give us the inscription of Hezekiah.”

Though Regev’s comment may have sounded like light-hearted banter, the Israeli government’s interest in the inscription is serious. The inscription of Hezekiah records the construction of the tunnel of the Shiloah spring that runs under the Temple Mount and essentially confirms the Biblical account of the project.

Now the rest of the acts of Chizkiyahu, and all his might, and how he made the pool, and the conduit, and brought water into the city, are they not written in the book of the chronicles of the kings of Yehuda? II Kings 20:20

Written in Paleo-Hebrew in the 8th century BCE, it is one of the oldest extant records of its kind. Discovered by an Arab youth in 1880, it was taken by the British Consul to the Ottoman capital and has been on permanent exhibit in the Istanbul Archaeology Museum since.

The inscription has been translated as follows:

… the tunnel … and this is the story of the tunnel while …the axes were against each other and while three cubits were left to (cut?) … the voice of a man …called to his counterpart, (for) there was ZADA in the rock, on the right … and on the day of the tunnel (being finished) the stonecutters struck each man towards his counterpart, ax against ax and flowed water from the source to the pool for 1,200 cubits. and (100?) cubits was the height over the head of the stonecutters …

The inscription’s significance is undeniable: it confirms the Biblical account of a Jewish king constructing the existent water system in Jerusalem. The construction of the conduit was an important factor in safeguarding the mountaintop city’s only source of water against an imminent attack by the Babylonian King Sennacherib. It was a remarkable feat of engineering for its time, requiring four years to complete. Two teams dug through solid stone from opposite ends, finally meeting in the middle.

It is not known how Sahin responded, but previous requests by the Israeli government were rebuffed. In 1998, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu offered to trade Turkish antiquities in Israeli museums for the precious Hebrew inscription, but his offer was rejected.

Another request in 2007 by former President Shimon Peres to borrow the inscription for a short period was initially accepted by the Turkish president Abdullah Gül, but the loan never materialized.

In 2007, Jerusalem Mayor Uri Lupolianski met with Turkey’s ambassador to Israel, Namık Tan, and requested that the tablet be returned to Jerusalem as a “goodwill gesture.”Turkey rejected the request. President Abdullah Gul said that Turkey would arrange for the inscription to be shown in Jerusalem for a short period, but this has yet to happen

This Week The ‘Arch Of Baal’ Was Displayed For The Third Time In Honor Of ‘The World Government Summit’

By Michael Snyder, on February 16th, 2017

Did you know that 4,000 world leaders from 130 different countries gathered in Dubai this week for the World Government Summit? It was held from February 12th to February 14th, and it featured more than 100 internationally-known speakers including UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres, Christine Lagarde and Elon Musk. If you would like to know more about this shadowy group, you can visit the official website right here. The first World Government Summit was held back in 2013, and that one was actually attended by Barack Obama. Unfortunately the mainstream media in the United States was almost entirely silent about this summit, so most of us in the western world didn’t even hear about it.

To honor the spirit of this summit, a reconstructed version of Palmyra’s Arch Of Triumph (also known as the Monumental Arch) was erected in Dubai. Previously it had been put up in London and New York City for brief periods of time, and so this marked only the third time that it has been displayed. The following comes from Breaking Israel News

A replica of a Roman arch that once stood in front of the pagan Temple of Ba’al was erected for the World Government Summit in Dubai this week, creating a scene that one rabbi claims symbolizes the dangerous fusion of Ishmael and Edom against Israel.

The original Roman Victory Arch stood for 1,800 years in Palmyra, Syria, until it was destroyed by ISIS in October 2015. A full-size 28-meter tall replica of the arch was created last year by the Institute for Digital Archeology, a joint project of Oxford and Harvard universities, and has been displayed twice before.

The replica was erected for the opening of the World Government Summit that opened on Sunday in Dubai.

In ancient Palmyra, the Arch of Triumph connected the main street of the Colonnade with the Temple of Bel. If ordinary people of the time wanted to visit the Temple of Bel, they would pass through this arch. And once they were done, the would pass through this arch again on their way out.

And of course “Bel” and “Baal” are synonymous, and both titles can be traced all the way back to ancient Babylon and a very evil ruler named Nimrod. The following is an extended excerpt from one of my previous articles

In a previous article, I included a quote from Wikipedia that discusses how “Bel” is an ancient Babylonian term for “Lord” or “Master”, and that “Baal” comes from that original root word…

Bel (/ˈbeɪl/; from Akkadian bēlu), signifying “lord” or “master”, is a title rather than a genuine name, applied to various gods in the Mesopotamian religion of Akkad, Assyria and Babylonia. The feminine form is Belit ‘Lady, Mistress’. Bel is represented in Greek as Belos and in Latin as Belus. Linguistically Bel is an East Semitic form cognate with Northwest Semitic Baal with the same meaning.

The title of “Bel” or “Baal” seems to have originally been used primarily for the Babylonian god Marduk. Here is more from Wikipedia

Bel became especially used of the Babylonian god Marduk and when found in Assyrian and neo-Babylonian personal names or mentioned in inscriptions in a Mesopotamian context it can usually be taken as referring to Marduk and no other god. Similarly Belit without some disambiguation mostly refers to Bel Marduk’s spouse Sarpanit. However Marduk’s mother, the Sumerian goddess called Ninhursag, Damkina, Ninmah and other names in Sumerian, was often known as Belit-ili ‘Lady of the Gods’ in Akkadian.

So where did “Marduk” come from?

Well, many scholars have traced the worship of Marduk all the way back to the historical figure of Nimrod

Traditionally the Tower of Babel event has been associated with Nimrod, and Jewish commentaries as well as the Jewish historian Josephus both seem very emphatic on this point. Regarding the Sumerian name Enmer-kar, the suffix “kar” means “hunter,” and so “Enmer-kar” is in fact “Enmer the Hunter,” just as Nimrod is referred to as the “Mighty Hunter” in Genesis 10. Furthermore, Enmerkar is named on the Sumerian King List as “the one who built Uruk,” just as Nimrod is described in Genesis 10:10 as having a kingdom that began in “Babel (Eridu) and Erech (Uruk)… in the land of Shinar.” After Enmerkar’s death he became honored in Sumerian myth as the semi-divine hero Ninurta, and eventually this cult evolved into the great cult of Marduk, which became the state religion of Babylon after the conquests and religious innovations of Hammurabi.

Are you starting to see how everything fits together?

And Nimrod was the great king of the very first “world government” in the post-flood world. The following is what Genesis 10:8-12 says in the Modern English Version

8 Cush was the father of Nimrod. He became a mighty one on the earth. 9 He was a mighty hunter before the Lord. Therefore it is said, “Even like Nimrod the mighty hunter before the Lord.” 10 The beginning of his kingdom was Babel, Uruk, Akkad, and Kalneh in the land of Shinar. 11 From that land he went to Assyria and built Nineveh, the city Rehoboth Ir, and Calah, 12 and Resen between Nineveh and Calah (that is the principal city).

So it seems more than a little bit strange that an arch with links to Nimrod has been erected to honor a summit devoted to the promotion of “world government” in our day.

It has been said that if we do not understand history we are doomed to repeat it. Nimrod’s world government in ancient times attempted to push God out of the picture, and the same thing is true with the globalists of today.

The globalists dream of a utopia where humanity has been united under a one world government, a one world economy and a one world religion. Donald Trump stands opposed to this twisted dream, and that is why the globalists hate him so much.

And the globalists understand the power of symbols very well. The erecting of this arch in Dubai at the exact same time the “World Government Summit” was being held sends a very powerful message.

Even though Donald Trump is now the president of the United States, the globalists are far from defeated, and if they have their way all of humanity will soon be within their ruthless grip.
