The Coming Conflict in the Middle East

Commentary & Analysis


L. A. Marzulli

Last week the Iranian president Mahmoud I’m-in-a-jihad went to Lebanon. It appears that the Iranians have succeeded in creating a loose confederacy with the nations of Syria, Turkey, Yemen,  and the radical Islamic factions of HAMAS and Hezbollah. If we look at the map of the Middle East, it appears that Israel is now surrounded by those who seed to destroy her. The Iranians have their fingers in all the pies and I believe that it’s just a matter of time before the conflict begins.

We don’t know what will start the war. We don’t know the flash point and we also don’t know the actual players or how many nations will be involved.

Spring and summer have come and gone and we are now into the fall season. I honestly believed that we would see something before now, but I was wrong. Every day I am amazed that nothing has erupted “‘over there.”

Take a look a the map and you will notice the Red Sea and the Persian Gulf. As I have posted before there are two choke points here, and at the present time the Iranians have control over these. They are the Gate of Tears, at the bottom of the Red Sean and the Straights of Hormuz in the Persian Gulf. A lot of the world’s oil flows through these two points. When the war starts, if it’s regional, we will most likely see these two areas attacked and shut down.

The game plan is to destroy Israel, to wipe it off the map, to push it into the sea. The drums of war are beating, but as of yet it would appear that cooler heads have prevailed.

Israel has issued gas masks to all its citizens. It has recently completed military exercises. They know it’s coming. If it is a two prong attack, which would be an all out assault on Israel while Radical Muslim extremists detonated dirty bombs imbedded in US cities, it would be devastating to our fragile economy. What if Hormuz and the Gate of Tears is shut down, would it result in ten dollar a gallon at the pump?

Americans need to understand that what drives the Mullah’s in Iran is a belief in the coming of the Mahdi. They believe that in order for him to manifest there must be chaos in the world. With that in mind, is it to far of a stretch to see the Iranians creating the chaos?

I believe the climate is much like it was shortly before WWII erupted. No one believed that Hitler would act, but he did and millions died in that conflict. It’s always business as usual and then when we least expect it, there is a flash point and all hell breaks loose. We are living in tenuous times. Now is the time to prepare for what is coming, not after it begins.

In closing today’s post. When we see wars and rumors of wars, earthquakes in diverse places and famines, pestilence and troublesome times we are to look up! Get ready because it means one thing. The Return of the King. All of this will play out just as it was written, but the end game, the closer, the final curtain, is that He returns and when that happens men will beat their swords into plowshares….

  1. How well do we know our enemies intentions?

    Over the weekend Iranian weekly paper Sobh-e Sadeq stated that
    there will soon be a “large-scale security incident” involving Lebanon and Israel, which is affiliated with Iran’s Revolutionary Guards.

    Iran funds, arms and trains the Hizbullah terrorist group based in southern Lebanon. Hizbullah would be unlikely to provoke a “security incident” without Iran’s approval.

    Iran has made consistent claims that they want to remove Israel off the face of the earth but other than hating Israel as an enemy is there another reason? The answer is Yes! They want to bring back the 12th Imam as soon as possible and to do that they have to create chaos.

    The 12th Imam is held by devout Shi’ite Muslims to be a direct descendant of the Prophet Mohammed who went into “occlusion” in the ninth century at the age of five and hasn’t been seen since.
    “Im-in-jihad” claims to be in direct contact with the 12th imam.

    The Hidden Imam, as he is also known by his followers, will only return after a period of cosmic chaos, war and bloodshed – what Christians call the Apocalypse – and then lead the world into an era of universal peace.

    Joel Rosenbergs “The Twelfth Imam,” releases today. The novel is premised on two “what if” scenarios. First, what if the world waits too long and Iran actually acquires nuclear weapons? Second, what if the so-called Shia Islamic messiah known as the Twelfth Imam actually comes to earth? What would happen? What would Iran do? What would Israel do? What would the U.S. do?

    Some people have asked me how I as a follower of Jesus Christ could envision such a scenario of a false messiah coming to earth. I remind them Bible prophecy tells us again and again that in the last days we are to expect false messiahs, false prophets, and false religions. In fact, in Matthew chapter 24, our Lord Jesus Christ warned His followers three times of this End Times trend:

    1. “See to it that no one misleads you. For many will come in My name, saying, ‘I am the messiah,’ and will mislead many.” (Matthew 24:4-5)

    2. “Many false prophets will arise and will mislead many.” (Matthew 24:11)

    3. “Then if anyone says to you, ‘Behold, here is the messiah,’ or, ‘There He is,’ do not believe him. For false messiahs and false prophets will arise and will show great signs and wonders, so as to mislead, if possible, even the elect. Behold, I have told you in advance. So if they say to you, ‘Behold, He is in the wilderness,’ do not go out, or, ‘Behold, He is in the inner rooms,’ do not believe them. For just as lightning comes from the east and flashes even to the west, so will the coming of the Son of Man be.” (Matthew 24: 23-27)

    I cannot tell you that the Twelfth Imam will definitely come to earth, much less soon. But according to Bible prophecy, it is possible. And in that context, it is intriguing to note recent developments inside Iran:

    * Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Khamenei Claims He Was Visited by Hidden Imam

    * Khamenei says he represents the Twelfth Imam on earth

    * Khamenei: The Twelfth Imam will reappear to rescue human community

    On my weblog, I have links to these specific articles. Meanwhile, the U.S. says Chinese companies are selling nuclear components to Iran, despite sanctions. And this is what is so dangerous — that Iran is getting closer to having nuclear weapons, even as its leaders believe they are in direct contact with the Twelfth Imam. They claim to be willing to engage in more nuclear talks, but they are just trying to buy time until their nuclear weapons are complete and the war of annihilation can begin, thus ushering in the era of the Twelfth Imam.

    The difference is that “Im-in-jihad” believes I think that with the bomb and terrorist activity he can bring back the 12th imam.

    • If the leaders of Iran are “in contact” with this 12th Imam, they are conversing with a demon, who no doubt is telling them to create the chaos that will bring him to light or power. Perhaps this 12th Imam they are in contact with will also devulge that it is an extra-terrestrial?? Could this be how they enter the scene perhaps at the same time, who knows. Thank God for Jesus the only wise God. Amen!

    • I was mulling this one over again the other day:

      Behold, I have told you in advance. So if they say to you, ‘Behold, He is in the wilderness,’ do not go out, or, ‘Behold, He is in the inner rooms,’ do not believe them.

      and considered- sure we have seen “humans” claiming to be false Christs/Prophets & false religions leading people astray over the past 2000 yrs but what if this warning has a further meaning of something pertaining to the “supernatural”?

      Then Rosenburg’s comment comes up about the 12th Imam. If this refers to the “gods” of old re-appearing then we could see a hybrid 12th Imam of some sort. But not only that…..What if “many” means “many” as in a relatively short period of time?

      “Many false prophets will arise and will mislead many”

      Up to this point I only hand in mind the “alien agenda” stuff pertaining to the “Anti-Christ” & possibly also the “False-Prophet”. The two main players named in Bible Prophecy but what if a batch are allowed to come & deceive the world even before they even show up?….. Like the 12th Imam, Matryea, & yada,yada,yada.

      This put an entirely new perspective to : “See to it that no one misleads you. For many will come in My name, saying, ‘I am the messiah,’ and will mislead many.” (Matthew 24:4-5)

      I guess time will tell but talk about an unprecedented time like no other.

    • I agree Lisa. Aliens/UFO’s could be just a distraction. They may not even play a part in the End times. Only time will tell.

  2. It always astounds me when I look at a map of the Middle East, to see the Muslim countries and the vast amount of land that surrounds little Israel. I can hardly even see Israel on this map. And then to hear, in the conflict going on, that they want even MORE land from Israel, when anyone of the surrounding countries could easily accomodate the Palestinians into their vast vast lands. No matter what they say, there is no way their object could be anything other than to wipe Israel off the map.
    I know this is such an obvious comment, but I am just always amazed by it.

    • You are so right Carolyn. This has been something that amazed me also. I realized that looking at this small, small country surrounded by such big ones as her enemies, that this indeed is a supernatural situation. How could anyone think otherwise. In the natural, what would be so special about little Israel and the small number of people that live there compared to these other countries…it is exactly because it is not natural, it is truly supernatural. This is God’s land as His word states. There is a real battle in the heavenlies and it is played out down here as well, hopefully more people will wake up to that fact.

    • Amen! my thoughts exactly , I believe God made it so unbelievable to bless us all… How could it be anything else but God’s super natural power that protects her, His children know this. Yahweh / Jesus is awesome!!!

    • Last year, our 5th grader chose Israel for a school country report. I was so excited to learn so many interesting facts along side of him! Like the fact that Israel is approximately the size of New Jersey!! It was a wasteland according to Mark Twain who traveled through it in the 1860’s. This is because there was no rainfall from 70A.D. when the temple was destroyed until God began gathering them to the promised land in the 1880’s and now the deserts bloom as promised in scripture. Tiny little Israel is quite an exporter of fruits and vegetables for the world. The almost non-existent language of Hebrew was reborn, as well. And, as mentioned, she is surrounded by enemies desiring to make her extinct and yet God’s hand of protection is obviously on Israel, afterall, He made a covenant that has not yet been fulfilled and we know our God keeps His Word.

      Oh, another reason enemies may want to loot Israel is that they are holding their own economically because they chose not to bail out their banks and there is that natural oil find off the coast of Haifa that no one seems to report on? It’s a very substantial find – just one more show of blessing from God and one more reason for those who do not love Israel to be envious and hate her.

      Satan hates Israel so whoever follows suit aligns themselves with the evil one – at least, that’s my take on the verse “Those who bless Israel will be blessed and those who curse her will be cursed.”

  3. Good on you for owning up to being wrong on spring and summer. I don’t hear a lot of prophecy scholars admit when they miss.

    That doesn’t mean we quit watching their or the air.

    • Terry, I didn’t want to say anything about that one, as you seemed to have your mind made up yesterday about what was real and what wasn’t. All I’m going to say is there are ‘creatures’ out there that look like what I call, ‘balloon art’. I have pictures of those, too. I keep telling everybody. The ships are here and they are here all the time. They’re parked overhead already. Their scouts ships are all over the place. The veil is open. Stuff is flying around everywhere. Look up, your redemption is near. Oh, I forgot. No, don’t look up because we’re not to engage the ships. What to do?

      In His Precious Name,

  4. I like Matthew 24:27…..” For as the lightning cometh from the east and flashes unto the west, so shall the coming of the Son of Man be.”

    What is lightning like? It comes in a millisecond and is gone in a millisecond.

    Not coming in the clouds at the end of the Tribulation descending to the Mount of Olives to rescue His remnant of Israel and make war on the Dragon.
    More like coming for His church and raising the dead in a twinkling of an eye as the scriptures tell us.
    Slip in, slip out, as a thief in the night.

    • Doug; I feel that the scripture Mat24:27 is more indicative of the unexpectedness of His return “Like a Thief in the night” and of the suddenness of it “behold I come Quickly”.
      Of course That is upon unbelievers that He comes unexpectedly! as we the faithful are “not in darkness and are longing for His appearing” That is my understanding have a good day god bless.

    • Thank you, Lisa.

      John, interesting how we put different meanings and intent for the same words.
      No problem ‘though.

      As long as I am where He wants me when He comes. 🙂

  5. Lynn…

    Have you ever thought about coming up to Calgary to do a presentation. There seems to be a great number of people I’ve come across up here, especially non believers embracing the idea of aliens. I’ve had some amazing witnessing opportunities to talk about God and the nephilim.
    Seems like a hungry bunch of folks up here. Calgary is a huge city and I would attend and spread the word for ya….just food for thought.

  6. Yanno, it’s all so simple really. All that talk about the illuminati, all that talk about masonry, all that talk about false this and false that –all of it is ‘out there’ to take focus away from our LORD.

    I had written a comment earlier but deleted it because I hadn’t had what I’d written confirmed by Him. Now I see Doug up above gave confirmation in Scripture…….

    Matthew 24:27…..” For as the lightning cometh from the east and flashes unto the west, so shall the coming of the Son of Man be.”

    It’s simple. The US is one, if not the greatest superpower in the world. Her dollar is ‘puffed up’, inflated on air by the prince of same and when the signal is given, the mighty US dollar will fall. America’s borders will be mass mayhem. The country vastly weakened. As it is written in Matthew 24:27, all it takes is ‘as the lightning cometh from the east’, nukes from any country in the East –just pick one and BOOM, it all begins. That cyber worm stuff takes down grids all over the world, the mid-East goes to war and no one will know, the mile-wide ships ……….lucifer is the ‘god’ of lightning. Trust me, I watched him re-arrange a whole beach in Costa Rica.

    Love our LORD with all your heart, love your neighbour as yourself. That too, is simple. Yet, why can’t people do it?

    In His Name,

  7. In the book of Revelations, Concerning the mark and the number associated with it! Who are called to exercise wisdom in order to understand? The answer can only be Christians, as it is they that are not to receive the mark.

    so we need to Know and be on guard against the wiles of the devil, furthermore it is also during the tribulation that the Final remnant of saints will also come out of Babylon.

  8. Dead Sea Scrolls to be made available online. In an ambitious application of 21st century technology brought to bear on a first century wonder, the Israel Antiquities Authority and internet search giant Google Tuesday announced a plan to digitize the Dead Sea Scrolls and make the entire collection available to the public online.

    Israel Antiquities Authority (IAA) General Director Shuka Dorfman called the project a milestone that would enhance the field of biblical studies and people’s understanding of Judaism and early Christianity.

    • Cool! The Book of Enoch was found in the Dead Sea Scrolls, right? Enoch was Noah’s grandfather. The book goes into great detail regarding the angels of God and how the fallen angels came to him to intercede for them with God because they took earthly women and created the offspring we know as the Nephilium. I’ve only read Enoch once on-line, so I’m no expert, but I do recall prophecy references to the Messiah/Christ and the end times. So, it covers a huge span of time.

      My question is why was this book taken out of scripture? I believe it was removed from the cannon about 700 years ago by St. Augustine? I wonder how making the actual scrolls available for all to see/read on-line will affect Satan’s end game scenario as he obviously tried to bury this particular book centuries ago… Maybe so they could come disguised as ET’s and no one, not even the church would be the wiser?

    • Extraterrestrials and the Dead Sea Scrolls
      I think this is going to be used for the end time deception somehow.This pastor (that is what he calls himself)mentions something at the end of the video that leads me to believe this.Warning!! he is new age but at the end of the video he talks about the dead sea schrolls.He is really blind to what is going on.Rev. Frank Stranges offers an engaging account of his meeting with a completely human looking extraterrestrial male at the Pentagon in 1959, and his subsequent interactions with this ET which he states still continue today. He describes the minute differences between this extraterrestrial and us, including the lack of fingerprints. Discussing the spiritual side of contact, Dr. Stranges elaborates upon the mission of neighboring human extraterrestrials within our own solar system who wish to assist Earth people toward a more peaceful future

  9. I’ve been hearing prophecy teachers talk about how God’s judgement is at the door and about the Iranian situation for years but nothing has happened yet. So does that mean they were wrong? More likely that God has used them for his purpose…to motivate people to pray for peace, until he absolutely has to take it away.

    • A friend of mine and I were wondering the same thing, and also regarding the situation in our own country. My friend mentioned the following scripture, which is part of God’s promise to Abraham.

      Gen 15:13-16
      Then He said to Abram: “Know certainly that your descendants will be strangers in a land that is not theirs, and will serve them, and they will afflict them four hundred years. “And also the nation whom they serve I will judge; afterward they shall come out with great possessions. “Now as for you, you shall go to your fathers in peace; you shall be buried at a good old age. “But in the fourth generation they shall return here, FOR THE INIQUITY OF THE AMORITES IS NOT YET COMPLETE.”

      God knew he that when Jsrael returned to Canaan, they would have destroy every wicked people living there. The Hittites, Jebusites, other ites had all reached maximum evil, but the Amorites weren’t quite there. God would wait before sending Israel to conquer them

      How does this relate? It sounds like there’s a threshold, a point to which God continues to hold out mercy and hope for a people. Even though he knows exactly what is going to happen, like with Sodom and Gomorah, for the sake of 10 righteous men he will withhold judgement.

      God is vastly more merciful than we are. But something is going to happen and Iran looks like the instigator in every scenario right now.

    • That’s some good insight Terry…I didn’t understand that passage before and it also sheds some light on why God allowed the Israelites to remain in Egypt FOR 400 YEARS. As you pointed out, it may have taken that long before he was ready to judge all of Canaan’s inhabitants. It sounds as if the Amorites may have spared God’s judgement on all the other ites for awhile…and I agree, I think it applies today. I’m hoping we have not yet reached the threshold.

    • I partially agree. But remember that the prophecies for the end days are specific and also measured in time for us. So there is a specific prophecy for the last generation. The way I understand the prophecy for the last days, God will not withhold it. People interpreted it wrong, thinking it will start sooner, that is all there is to it. The issue with the rapture is the same situation.

      But because we don`t know when it will start, to us who watch, it seems like withholding of judgment. I hope God has many more peaceful days ahead for us, His will be done.

  10. Ancient Mysteries & Parallel Dimensions

    Author and investigator Graham Hancock talked about his research into ancient mysteries, supernatural beings, and parallel realms. He discussed the archaeological discovery of the megalithic site at Gobekli Tepe in Turkey, dating back almost 12,000 years old. On a scale like Stonehenge (though far older), “the site is constructed out of giant stones which have been carved very precisely often with reliefs of animals and strange supernatural figures,” he noted. There is no context for a site like this in archaeological study; “it just seems to come out of nowhere…in a fully formed, incredibly impressive state,” almost like a buried time capsule, he said.

    Our world could be interpenetrated by other dimensions or realms that are most often undetectable, Hancock stated, adding that this could account for the UFO phenomenon which seems quite elusive. These other dimensions could also include the spirit world. He cited how cave paintings dating back thousands of years depicted spirit or supernatural beings. During the medieval era people spoke about fairies, elves, and the realms they inhabited, while today alien abduction and UFO craft are reported. What we’re seeing is actually one phenomena “viewed through different cultural spectacles” that originates in a parallel dimension or realm, he explained.

    He also talked about his recent novel Entangled, which deals with time travel, NDEs, and the supernatural. Interestingly, in his book he featured neanderthal characters who were compassionate, and now well after he wrote the work, scientific reports have just emerged that suggest neanderthals were indeed nurturing and caring, and not the brutish thugs most people picture.

    The Origin of Fairies theories Legends & Lore – Fairy Kingdom

    In the lore of Scandinavia, Scotland, and Ireland, when God cast out the arrogant angels from heaven, they became the evil spirits that plague mankind, tormenting us and inflicting us with harm. The ones who fell into hell and into caves and abysses became devils and death-maidens. However, those who fell onto the earth became goblins, imps, dwarfs, thumblings, alps, noon-and-evening-ghosts, and will-o’-the-wisps. Those who fell into the forests became the wood-spirits who live there: the hey-men, the wild-men, the forest-men, the wild-women, and the forest-women. Finally, those who fell into the water became water spirits: water-men, mermaids, and merwomen. These angels were condemned to remain where they were, becoming the faeries of seas and rivers, the earth, and the air.

  11. Ok, have a friend from college who believes that God may have created another race. This is after I sent her the youtube vid of the lights in Texas. She says, these lights don’t necessarily have to be of alien origin…etc, etc.

    What sites and what verses do I point her to without overwhelming her with info?

    • Start with Genesis 6. Then tell her to watch this lecture from Chuck Missler:

      Then give her a source of information from the non-christian scientific world who confirm the christian view. Agnostics Dr. Jacques Valle & Dr. Allen J. Hynek – most recognized scientists in this field, here is a link with their quotes among others:

      But if your friend won`t be willing to do a little research for herself, she wont believe anyway.

    • You could give her a copy of PP&S. Is PP&S online too? All of this Ipad/Notepad/Thispad/Thatpad there so may ways to read a book now. What is an author to do? Have the work in available every venue?

      Ultimately, people are either open to wanting to find the truth or they will continue to believe what they want to believe. We don’t know that part of their hearts so all we can do is give them the info & encourage them to take it into consideration.

      I sent a copy of PP&S to my sister & brother in law. I know he’s never read it because he doesn’t feel the subject matter is important. (And they are Christians or “Christians” – sometimes I have my doubts.) Recently I tried to encourage him to read it but he threw some excuse my way that he knows from experience that the Lord doesn’t want him to get involved/too wrapped up in Politics because that’s a weak spot in his life.

      People really come up w/some douses! I encouraged him to read it anyway. I didn’t realize how stubborn he was until we had this conversation. Generally he’s just a really neat upbeat kind of guy.

      **So see if your college friend may be more receptive. Sometimes it may have to be a short read because there is too much homework reading for school.

    • Oh, and he also was saying that “who knows, God may have made other beings on different planets.” Radar alert- that’s how I found out he hadn’t read PP&S because I then asked him after he made that comment.

  12. Off topic

    Can you all pray for me? I am having problems at work, my bosses are being quite petty, and I suspect they are trying to weed out some folks with cause before a layoff. I don’t have really anything ive done wrong, but I’m stuck under the bus.

    I think the Lord is testing me, but regardless pray for me to escape job loss til I find another one first. Also that God will deal with my bosses and let them be merciful. I cry out to Him to help me through.

    Thanks all, love you guys

    • You have my prayers Frank. May God be with us all as we are being refined in these Last Days. I pray His protection over you and your family.

      In Christ,

  13. If you subscribe to Coast Insider (Coast to Coast AM), this was a very interesting program. By the way, George Knapp will have Dr. Jacques Vallee on his show this Sunday.

    Aliens & Secret Govt. Group
    Sunday October 17, 2010
    UFO researcher Nick Redfern joined George Knapp to talk about a secret group within the U.S. government known as the Collins Elite, who believe our purported alien visitors are actually deceptive demonic entities. Redfern first learned of theof the group’s existence, through Ray Boeche, an Anglican priest, and former director of Nebraska’s MUFON. Boeche said back in 1991 he met with two men from the Defense Dept. who told him about a secret project to contact NHE’s (non-human entities). They showed him photographs of people who allegedly died during experiments while contacting the NHEs, and contended that the beings they communicated with were simply masquerading as ETs.

    Eventually, Redfern interviewed a man in his 80s named Richard Duke, who claimed to be a member of the Collins Elite up until 1960, and recalled many specific details about the group. The group took its inspiration from occultist Aleister Crowley’s ritual in which he reportedly made contact with an interdimensional entity named Lam. Later, in the 1940s, rocket scientist Jack Parsons engaged in similar experiments trying to invoke a being, and subsequent UFO sightings may have been enabled through his opening of a portal, the group believed. According to Duke, the Collins Elite also suspected that various contactees in the 1950s, such as George Hunt Williamson, who used a Oujia board for ET communications, were experiencing demonic deceptions.

    In the 1960s, the Collins Elite examined a number of NDE reports, such as one in which deceased humans moved through a hellish landscape as a UFO-type craft hovered overhead, extracting their souls with a ball of light, Redfern detailed. “They eventually came to the conclusion…that the human soul possesses some sort of energy, which these entities can use as sustenance…In other words, they’re harvesting human souls,” he said, adding that the group believed that a strong religious viewpoint, such as Christian fundamentalism could keep the demonic entities at bay.

  14. Hi Dutchess,

    Yes, moving balls of light, orbs, are not always associated with ufos. In the past they are associated with ghosts and fairies ( or nature spirits). For instance

    From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia'-the-wisp
    For other uses, see Will-o’-the-wisp (disambiguation).

    AKA Ignis fatuus, ghost-light, spook-light, orb
    Definition A mysterious light associated with spirits, found in various folklore tales
    Signature Soft and illusive light with no determinable source
    Status Folklore
    See also Foxfire
    Earthquake light

    A will-o’-the-wisp or ignis fatuus (Latin, from ignis, “fire” + fatuus, “foolish”), also called will-o’-wisp, corpse candle, jack-o’-lantern, friar’s lantern, gunderslislik, and wisp, is a Folklore depiction of ghostly light sometimes seen at night or twilight over bogs, swamps, and marshes. It resembles a flickering lamp and is sometimes said to recede if approached. Much folklore surrounds the phenomenon.

    The term will-o’-the-wisp comes from wisp, a bundle of sticks or paper sometimes used as a torch, and the name Will—thus, “Will of the wisp (or torch)”. The term Jack-o-lantern (“Jack of the lantern”) was originally synonymous with will-o’-the-wisp. In fact, the names Jacky Lantern and Jack the Lantern are still present in the oral tradition of Newfoundland.

    These lights are also sometimes referred to as corpse candles or hobby lanterns, two monikers found in the Denham Tracts. In the United States, they are often called spook-lights, ghost-lights, or orbs[1] by folklorists and paranormal enthusiasts.[2][3] Sometimes the phenomenon is classified by the observer as a ghost, fairy, or elemental, and a different name is used. Briggs’ A Dictionary of Fairies provides an extensive list of other names for the same phenomenon, though the place where they are observed (graveyard, bogs, etc.) influences the naming considerably.

    • What about when the muslems burn our bible? Do you think anyone of them would even consider giving out bibles away for every one burned by them and used as toilet paper.That to me is like giving out the satanic bible to anyone who asks.I totally agree with you LNL.

  15. MEXICO CITY — Two earthquakes struck northern Mexico Monday just minutes apart, the U.S. Geological Survey said, but there were no immediate reports of serious damage or injuries.

    The first quake was 5.9 magnitude and hit about 84 miles west-southwest of Navolato, in the mostly rural area of Sinaloa, at a depth of 8.1 miles the USGS said.

    The second quake, measured at a magnitude of 5.5, occurred about six minutes later, 66 miles east of La Paz in Baja California Sur.

    Mexico’s state civil defense department was not immediately available for information on the quakes.

  17. US deploys second air carrier in Persian Gulf with 60 warplanes

    DEBKAfile Special Report October 20, 2010 The United States has posted a second aircraft carrier, the USS Abraham Lincoln, in the Persian Gulf and northern Arabian Sea. The announcement came from the Pentagon Tuesday, Oct. 19, two days after the vessel put into port at Fifth Fleet headquarters in Manama, Bahrain. debkafile’s sources note that this is the first time in two years that Washington had deployed two aircraft carriers at same time – not just one – in waters opposite Iran and Afghanistan.

    Facing Iran at the moment therefore is the USS Harry S. Truman which has four squadrons of Hornet and Super Hornet fighter-bombers plus Squadron 116 of early warning, surveillance and command craft, Squadron 131 of electronic warfare craft, two more squadrons of helicopters and one of transports.

    The Abraham Lincoln’s arrival has raised the number of US fighter-bombers in Iran’s neighborhood to 120.

    The carrier was accompanied by the guided missile cruiser USS Cape St. George.

    The Pentagon announcement was careful to avoid mentioning Iran: US Secretary of Defense Robert Gates approved the presence of a second carrier… to provide surge support for coalition forces in Afghanistan “and to support existing maritime security operations.”
    But the significance of two massive American naval-aerial strike forces opposite Iranian shores was not lost on Tehran, our sources report. Wednesday, Oct. 20, Brig. Gen. Hussein Salami, Deputy Commander of the Iranian Revolutionary Guards, came out with this statement: “The enemies of Iran should know the Islamic establishment’s red lines and not trespass them.”
