SPECIAL INTERESTS: PART II

John S. Torell

 
 

In the June Newsletter we looked at Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger's ties to the Jewish Lobby in America, and then we discussed the business of oil, how it is produced, transported, refined and sold to the public at inflated prices.

I cannot cease to emphasize that all events in the world today begin and end with the State of Israel. This is totally in line with the Bible, where the Words of God and His prophetic revelations are written down. God's Word cannot be broken, His Word stands forever and Jerusalem is the focal point of all political decisions made by the current Jewish World Government.

The burden of the word of the LORD for Israel, saith the LORD, which stretcheth forth the heavens, and layeth the foundation of the earth, and formeth the spirit of man within him. Behold, I will make Jerusalem a cup of trembling unto all the people round about, when they shall be in the siege both against Judah and against Jerusalem. And in that day will I make Jerusalem a burdensome stone for all people: all that burden themselves with it shall be cut in pieces, though all the people of the earth be gathered together against it. Zechariah 12:1-3

Behold, the day of the LORD cometh, and thy spoil shall be divided in the midst of thee. For I will gather all nations against Jerusalem to battle; and the city shall be taken, and the houses rifled, and the women ravished; and half of the city shall go forth into captivity, and the residue of the people shall not be cut off from the city. Then shall the LORD go forth, and fight against those nations, as when he fought in the day of battle. And his feet shall stand in that day upon the mount of Olives, which is before Jerusalem on the east, and the mount of Olives shall cleave in the midst thereof toward the east and toward the west, and there shall be a very great valley; and half of the mountain shall remove toward the north, and half of it toward the south. Zechariah 14:1-4

And there was given me a reed like unto a rod: and the angel stood, saying, Rise, and measure the temple of God, and the altar, and them that worship therein. But the court which is without the temple leave out, and measure it not; for it is given unto the Gentiles: and the holy city shall they tread under foot forty and two months. And I will give power unto my two witnesses, and they shall prophesy a thousand two hundred and threescore days, clothed in sackcloth. These are the two olive trees, and the two candlesticks standing before the God of the earth. And if any man will hurt them, fire proceedeth out of their mouth, and devoureth their enemies: and if any man will hurt them, he must in this manner be killed. These have power to shut heaven, that it rain not in the days of their prophecy: and have power over waters to turn them to blood, and to smite the earth with all plagues, as often as they will. And when they shall have finished their testimony, the beast that ascendeth out of the bottomless pit shall make war against them, and shall overcome them, and kill them. And their dead bodies shall lie in the street of the great city, which spiritually is called Sodom and Egypt, where also our Lord was crucified. And they of the people and kindreds and tongues and nations shall see their dead bodies three days and an half, and shall not suffer their dead bodies to be put in graves. And they that dwell upon the earth shall rejoice over them, and make merry, and shall send gifts one to another; because these two prophets tormented them that dwelt on the earth. And after three days and an half the Spirit of life from God entered into them, and they stood upon their feet; and great fear fell upon them which saw them. And they heard a great voice from heaven saying unto them, Come up hither. And they ascended up to heaven in a cloud; and their enemies beheld them. Revelation 11:1-12

There are a number of well meaning speakers and writers who are trying to inform the people in the world of what is going on and many of them are focusing heavily on the Secret Societies. As I have pointed out for the last 20 years, there are secret societies ranging from Free Masons to all kinds of political, religious and occult groups. Each one claims for its members that they have all truth and illumination and that they are going to dominate the world, but none of those groups accepts the beliefs of any other group. What the people have not understood is that all of these groups have a common "theological base," which is the Cabala (Kabbalah). The teaching from this set of writings of Jewish occultism is then mixed up with other religious thought and false doctrine, resulting in a wide spectrum of religious teaching, all deceiving the people and leading them to hell.

George W. Bush

PRESIDENT BUSH IS HAVING A HARD TIME
Regardless what view a person has about George W. Bush, we must come to understand that he is the President of the United States and the decisions made in the White House are going to affect all Americans, whether we like it or not. The American president represents the entire nation, and when he is pushed around, so is the nation. Americans are dying by the hundreds in Iraq, not to forget the thousands who have been maimed for the rest of their lives, losing arms, legs and at times eyesight. The entire operation in Iraq is paid for by taxpayers money and thus it behooves every American citizen to understand the dynamics in the Middle East and for the Christians to pray and fast while seeking the Lord.

In an American media interview toward the end of the month of June, a senior CIA official made some statements on the condition that his name would not be publicized. This is a common practice in Washington D.C. used by disgruntled federal employees or military personal who are deeply disturbed by some event but do not have an official channel with which to address the issue. By leaking it to the press, they can expose truth and thus try to change the course of an event without being punished by their superiors.

Mark Regev

The reporter was asking questions about the involvement of the Israeli Mossad and some units of the Israeli Defense Forces with the Kurds in northern Iraq. When the question was posed to the spokesman, Mark Regev, for the Israeli embassy in Washington D.C., he gave the following answer, "The story is simply untrue, and the relevant governments know it's untrue." When Kurdish officials were asked the same question, they declined to comment and the American State Department refused to even address the question.

The American CIA official admitted that the Israeli government had ongoing operations in northern Iraq which is populated and run by the Kurdish people. He further said that the Israeli government felt that it had no choice but to build a power base in northern Iraq that should the need arise, they could strike at Iran or Baghdad.

Seymour Myron Hersh was born with a twin brother on April 8, 1937 to a middle class Jewish family in Chicago. In 1958 he received a B.A. in history from the University of Chicago, where he met his future wife, Elizabeth Sarah Klein, now a psychoanalyst. He then worked briefly for the Chicago City News Bureau, working as a copy boy and later as a police reporter. He then joined the Army and worked as a public information officer in Fort Riley, Kansas. He came back to Chicago in 1961, where he became the co-founder of a suburban news paper, which failed. He then worked for a year for the UPI (United Press International), then for AP (Associated Press) which moved him to Washington D. C. In 1966 he was promoted to a Pentagon correspondent. When he wrote an investigative article on nerve gas being shipped overseas by the U.S. Army, AP refused to run the story and took out 80% what he had written, and then rewrote what was left. Hersh then quit A.P. and joined Eugene McCarthy’s presidential campaign. When he found out the corruption in the campaign, he left it. He returned to journalism and wrote investigative articles on chemical and biological warfare, which were published in New York Times and the New Republic. The material became his first book: "Chemical and Biological Warfare: America’s Hidden Arsenal."

In 1972 he exposed the My Lai massacre, and was then hired by the New York Times where he worked for seven years. He then pursued the wrong doings of the CIA and exposed the agencies spying on American citizens, then he revealed the CIA operation in Chile, when the CIA sponsored the ouster of Salvador Allende (1908-1973, Chiles’ first socialist president). Hersh also exposed the story of the CIA hijacking of the Glomar Explorer drilling ship, when the CIA tried to raise a sunken Soviet nuclear submarine. He also exposed the secret bombings of Cambodia, which Henry Kissinger (Secretary of State) had ordered. Hersh is the author of six books, including "The Price of Power: Kissinger in the Nixon White House," "The Target is Destroyed: What Really Happened to Flight 007 and What American Knew About it," "The Samson Option: Israel’s Nuclear Arsenal and America’s Foreign Policy."

Despite the fact that Hersh is an American Jew, he is not a Zionist. His work reveals that he is more than interested in rooting out corruption and meaningless wars. He is taking a very critical view of Israel and its policies and is not afraid of writing about it. His work should be taken seriously and cannot be considered "fluff."

In an article published in the NEW YORKER during the month of June, 2004 and written by Seymour M. Hersh, entitled "ISRAEL GIVES UP ON IRAQ, BACKS KURDS," I quote the following:

" … However, a senior CIA official acknowledged in an interview the week before last that the Israelis were indeed operating in Kurdistan. He told me that the Israelis felt that they had little choice. 'They think they have to be there.' Asked whether the Israelis had sought approval from Washington, the official laughed and said, ‘Do you know anybody who can tell the Israelis what to do? They're always going to do what is in their best interest.’ The CIA official added that the Israeli presence was widely known in the American intelligence community.

"The Israeli decision to seek a bigger foothold in Kurdistan, characterized by the former Israeli intelligence officer as 'Plan B,' has raised tensions between Israel and Turkey. It has provoked bitter statements from Turkish politicians and, in a major regional shift, a new alliance is being formed among Iran, Syria and Turkey, all having significant Kurdish minorities."

Map of Kurdistan

WHO ARE THE KURDS?
In order to understand what is happening in 2004, we need to do a brief historical investigation of the Kurdish people. According to recent estimates, there are around 25 million people of Kurdish descent. Most of the Kurds live in contiguous areas of Iran, Iraq, Turkey, Syria, and Armenia. This region is known as Kurdistan. After World War I, the Allied council of four met at the San Remo Peace Conference on the Italian Riviera to divide up the Ottoman Empire (April 19-26, 1920). The Kurdish people were sacrificed and were hindered from taking control of their own land which they had occupied for more than a thousand years. Instead, Kurdistan was carved up and some went to Turkey, some to Syria, some to Iraq and some to Iran.

The Kurds have their own language, which is a West Iranian language related to Persian and Pashto. Prior to World War I, the Kurds were a nomadic people, raising sheep and goats. Since the whole area at that time was controlled by the Ottoman Empire, the Kurds moved their herds within a large area which now is divided up between the different nations in the region. The Kurds never were able to establish a nation; the region was always ruled by some hostile empire which oppressed them. The Kurds are fierce fighters, and for centuries different nations recruited them as mercenaries. Kurdish units have served in various armies for the last 1000 years. Most Kurds are Muslims of the Sunni form, but there are many Kurds who adhere to "Sufism." This is another branch of Islam, which is based upon mysticism and a personal encounter with God, mixed in with occultism.

The Kurds are a very conservative people, with a strong tribal system. Kurds prefer to marry within their own tribe; the average age of the men being 20 and the women 12. The Kurds did not have a central leadership for centuries, and there was no Kurdish newspaper until 1897. Basically, the Kurds were just handling their own business and since they were a tribal people, they did not build a political system. All of the Middle East nations were under the control of the Ottoman Empire until the end of World War II; the Kurds, being nomads, traveled unhindered within the Ottoman Empire. When this empire was carved up and divided into different nations in1918, the Kurds found themselves boxed in, having ended up in different nations with different policies. Not having a strong central leadership, they were ignored as a people.

Abdullah Ocalan

Once the Kurds discovered that they had been divided as a people, a number of separatist movements were formed. The Turkish government realized that the Kurds living in their territory had to be be neutralized. They classified them as "Mountain Turks," outlawing the Kurdish language and forbidding them to wear distinctive Kurdish clothing in or near important administrative cities. Kurds were "encouraged" by the government to leave their tribal areas and move to Western Turkey and to the big cities. The goal was to have the Kurds assimilate into Turkish society and cease to exist as a national entity.

In order for people living in the United States to fully comprehend what happened, the Kurds were treated like the American Indians during the expansion of the United States westward in the 19th century. There were periodic rebellions among the Turkish Kurds, but just as with the American Indians, the tribes were fragmented and nothing came of it. In 1974 a Kurdish university student by the name of Abdullah Ocalan formed the Kurdistan Workers Party, known as PKK, a Marxist organization dedicated to creating an independent Kurdistan.

Reza Shah Pahlavi

ENTER THE SOVIET UNION INTO THE EQUATION
Around 1938, shortly before the outbreak of World War II, the ruling regent in Iran was REZA SHAH PAHLAVI (1878-1944); an Iranian Army officer who had taken power over Iran). In order to offset the pressure from the Soviet Union and Great Britain on his country, he entered into a political alliance with Nazi Germany.

When the United States entered World War II in 1941, it was decided that the Soviets and the United States would jointly attack Iran and divide it up into a Soviet zone and an American Zone, in order to have easy access to move American war supplies to the Soviet Union. Once Iran had been divided, Reza Shah abdicated from the throne and was taken to South Africa (under British control at that time), where he died three years later in 1944.

Mohammad Reza Shah Pahlavi

His son MOHAMMAD REZA SHAH PAHLAVI (1919-1980) became the ruler of Iran. When World War II ended in 1945, the Soviets did not want to give up its portion of Iran, but pressure from the Western powers forced the Soviet Union to cede back to Iran the territory it had taken, except for the northwest province of Azerbaijan with its provincial capital of Mahabad. This region is a Kurdish stronghold and a pact was made between the Kurds and the Communists to form an "independent" Kurdish republic, guarded and governed by the Soviet Union. For the first time the Kurds had been able to carve out some land for themselves. But the Shah of Iran did not want to let go of this portion of Iran, and in 1947, after Soviet troops had been withdrawn from the province, Iranian army troops entered the province and took it away from the Soviet puppet regime. When the Shah was ousted in 1979 the Kurds rose up in Mahabad and for a short time held the city and the province, until Iranian troops, loyal to Khomeini, crushed the uprising and again suppressed the Kurds.

With the Kurds as a "wild card" in the Middle East equation, the Soviets funneled weapons to the Kurdish resistance movement, which in turn destabilized the region and made it easier for the Soviet Union to push its own policies in this oil rich region. The Kurds do not care who is helping them, they will take money, weapons and supplies from anyone in order to create their own homeland.

Mustafa al-Barzani

KURDS IN IRAQ AND IRAN
The pressure from the Iraqi government for the Kurds to assimilate into Iraq and its culture was less than what the Turks had done. Kurdish rebellion broke out in 1931-32 and again in 1944-45, but was crushed. The leader of the Kurds living in Iraqi territory was MUSTAFA al-BARZANI (1903-1979), the son of a wealthy landlord. Barzani had an older brother, Sheikh Ahmed, who had led the Kurdish uprising from World War I to the late 1930s. During the short lived Kurdish Mahabad Republic, Barzani was the Commander In Chief of the Kurdish army. When the Iranian Army overran Mahabad, Barzani fled and took refuge in Soviet Azerbaijan, where he remained until the 1958 revolution in Iraq at which time he was allowed to return to Iraq. Barzani wanted an independent Kurdish state, but the Iraqi government was only willing to grant autonomy for the Kurdish area of Iraq, while still being under the control of the Iraqi government. In 1960 Barzani escaped to the Kurdish mountains in the north and began a guerilla war against the Iraqi government. After 10 years of fighting, a cease fire agreement was worked out and amnesty given to all Kurdish fighters. In 1974 an Iraqi law was drawn up giving autonomy to the Iraqi Kurds.

Pesh Merga

Then it was time for the Shah of Iran to use the Kurds as a "wild card," since the Shah wanted to weaken the Iraqi government. The militia that Barzani commanded, called "PESH MERGA," (which means "Forward to Death") was now ordered to resume combat missions against the Iraqi Army. The Iranian government supported Barzani's troops with finances, weapons, ammunition and other supplies. But again the Kurds were going to learn a painful lesson; no government has ever helped the Kurds because they love them and want to see a Kurdish nation. INSTEAD IT HAS ALWAYS BEEN FOR POLITICAL REASONS, AND WHEN THE POLITICAL GOALS HAVE BEEN REACHED, THE KURDS ARE BETRAYED!

Pesh Merga

In 1975 the Shah of Iran and Saddam Hussein hammered out a deal as they met in Algiers in the month of March and as a result, all Iranian support of the Pesh Merga was cut off. The result was a terrible blood bath of Kurds being killed and thousands upon thousands fleeing into Iran and Turkey. Mustafa al-Barzani fled to Iran and lived for a while in Tehran, capitol of Iran, but then requested asylum in the United States, which was granted. He lived in Washington D.C., where he died on March 1, 1979.

When war broke out in September 1980 between Iraq and Iran, instigated by the American CIA, the "Kurd card" was played again. This time it was the CIA who moved into northern Iraq and got the Pesh Merga forces fighting again. Saddam Hussein realized that in order to secure his northern front, the Kurds had to be crushed. The Saddam Hussein regime had, in the late 1970's, implemented a ruthless policy of moving Iraqi Arabs from the south to resettle them in and around the city of Karkuk which is located in an area of Kurdistan having an enormous deposit of oil. The Iraqi government did not ask the Arabs if they wanted to move and the Kurdish civilians were told to move out or else. The entire border region with Iran was ethnically cleansed from Kurds. They lost their homes and lands, and were told to move up into the mountains. 2

NOTE: DIRTY BUSINESS IN THE MIDDLE EAST
In order for the reader to understand the hatred the people in the Middle East have for the nations of the West, look at these facts: From World War II until the fall of the Shah in 1979, Iran was a client state of the United States. Its entire military complex was American made, its army, navy and air force, including its intelligence service, "THE SAVAK," which had brutally suppressed any opposition to the Shah. Iraq was first a client state of Great Britain, but in 1972 it became a client state of the Soviet Union. During its war with Iran, from 1987 and on, Iraq was given weaponry and supplies from both the Soviet Union and France. The United States furnished Saddam Hussein on a daily basis with photos taken from American satellites and spy planes. Knowing how the Iranians were deployed gave the Iraqi military an upper hand. The Iranian government was in a dilemma, their entire military system was American made, but they could no longer get any spare parts from the U.S. This opened the door for the State of Israel to start supplying spare parts, ammunition and other items to the Iranian armed forces. Israel would buy these from the United States and then, via North Korea, ship those to Iran (remember the Iran/Contra affair). The United States also supplied Iraq with the supplies and know-how to build chemical/biological weapons. A number of West German companies were used to build the facilities in Iraq. When the Iranians tried to choke off the oil exports from Iraq in 1988, aircraft from the U.S. Navy attacked Iranian navy ships and oil platforms. Much money was made on this "dirty little war" that was to last for almost 10 years, with millions of people from Iran and Iraq killed or maimed for life. The Russian, French, British, Israeli, German and American business giants made billions of dollars in profit. What I just shared with you is not common knowledge among the American people, but the people in the Middle East are better educated in these matters and their anger is boiling. Halliburton, an American company, has been in Iraq for many years.

IRAN ONCE AGAIN EMBRACES THE KURDS
At the beginning of the war between Iran and Iraq, the Iranians lost much territory and suffered heavy losses. However by November 1980, the Iranian army was able to stop the Iraqi offensive and started to drive the Iraqi army back. By May 1982 most of the lost Iranian territories had been recaptured, and the Iranians now opened up a second front in the north with the help of the Kurds who again hoped to be able to establish a homeland for themselves. A number of Iraqi border towns were taken and the northern area of Iraq was now ruled by the Kurds. It was at this time that Saddam Hussein decided to use his chemical weapons on both fronts. On March 16, 1988 mustard gas and other nerve agents were used against the Kurds and in only one attack more than 5,000 Kurds were killed, most of them civilians. Thousands upon thousands of Iranian soldiers were either killed or maimed for life by the nerve gases used by Saddam Hussein's forces. In 1990 Iran and Iraq signed a peace accord, brokered by the United Nations. Again the Kurds had been betrayed and "hung out to dry."

The Kurds, under the leadership of Abdullah Ocalan, continued their attack on the Turkish government, and having moved their bases into Iraq, mounted war against Turkey. Ocalan had a fighting force of around 10,000, which the Kurds called "freedom fighters," but the Turks called them "terrorists." The Kurdish forces would blow up government buildings, assassinate Turkish leaders, and harass Turkish troops, supporting their activities with bank robberies and other criminal activities. This group of Kurds was supported by the Syrian government and from Kurds living in the West.

Saddam Hussein

SADDAM HUSSEIN INVADES KUWAIT
Having crushed the Kurds in the north and being at peace with Iran, Saddam Hussein ordered the invasion of Kuwait on August 2, 1990. It did not take the Iraqi army long to overrun Kuwait. The Western powers now had no choice but to attack the man they had supported for the last ten years, Saddam Hussein. On August 9, the first American troops began arriving in Saudi Arabia. The United Nations held emergency meetings and resolutions were introduced and passed that if Iraq would not withdraw from Kuwait force would be used. Instead, Saddam built up his armed forces in Kuwait to 300,000 men.

The United States led a coalition, which by January 1991 had reached a number of 700,000 troops of which 540,000 were Americans. The American attack began on January 16, 1991 with a massive air campaign against Iraq. Iraq was more or less bombed back to "the stone age." The ground attack began on February 24 and within three days Kuwait was liberated. American tank forces sliced more than 120 miles into Iraq and attacked Iraq's armored reserves from the rear, which were shred to pieces. By February 28, President Bush (Sr.) declared a cease fire. The allies suffered 300 dead soldiers, the Iraqis lost anywhere between 8,000 to 100,000 war dead.

THE KURDS ARE BETRAYED AGAIN
During this time, the CIA had been working behind the scenes. It’s agents had been working in northern Iraq and encouraged the Kurds to rise up and rebel against Saddam Hussein. Despite having been betrayed so many times, they took up arms again and a strong revolt took place in the north. At the same time the CIA encouraged the Shiites in the south to rise up against Saddam, which they did. Saddam Hussein was finished! His army was in shambles and they had lost much equipment.

The CIA had promised the Kurds and the Shiites that if they took up arms, U.S. forces would come in and help them. But the Kurdish leadership had not done their homework. They did not know how the CIA trained thousands of Cubans and then used the U.S. Navy to launch an attack on Cuba on April 17, 1961. Once the 1500 Cuban trained freedom fighters had been landed on Cuban beaches, the United States, on the spur of the moment, decided to abandon them, and the U.S. Navy was withdrawn. With no more air support, all of them were either killed or captured and then tortured beyond what a man can stand. But Cuba was not the first CIA betrayal; five years earlier the CIA had built up Hungarian freedom fighters, equipped them and told them to rise up against the Communists. In one week they had taken over Hungary, but instead of sending in American troops to help them out, they were left alone and slaughtered by the thousands. Today, the people in the world know that the United States cannot be trusted; it will abandon and betray people they have lured to rise up against dictators or communists regimes. Also, don’t forget our betrayal of South Vietnam in 1975.

Saddam Hussein acted very quickly. With a brutality not having been seen before in Iraq, he scraped up troops loyal to him, and the Kurds were crushed in a great blood bath, and with women and children brutally killed to break the backs of the Kurds. Once the Kurds were crushed, Saddam turned south and killed Shiites by the hundreds of thousands. To save face, President Bush then declared no-fly zones in Iraq, one in the north and one in the south (map attached). But it was too little and too late for the half million or so men, women and children, who now lay dead in mass graves.

No-Fly Zone

THE KURDS ARE DESPERATE
Once the no fly-zones were in place and enforced with combat aircraft from the U.S. and Great Britain, the CIA again infiltrated northern Iraq and convinced the Kurds once again to mobilize their military forces. Saddam was no longer able to keep troops in the Kurdish area since allied combat aircraft would attack them if they did further damage to the Kurds. The relationship soured between Turkey and the United States, since the Kurdish PKK was wreaking havoc in Turkey and hiding in the no-fly zone in Iraq. Despite
the fact that Turkey had been involved in the liberation of Kuwait, Turkey and Saddam's regime now had a common enemy, the Kurds, and tried to cooperate to suppress them. By 1993 Turkey was fielding an army of 200,000 soldiers in southeastern Turkey, battling the PKK in the largest civil war going on at this time in the Middle East. From 1982-1995 some 15,000 people were killed in the fighting between PKK and the Turkish Army, mostly Kurdish civilians, as the Turks destroyed hundreds of villages and flattened houses. By 2004 that number has risen to 30,000. In 1992 the Turkish Air Force attacked PKK bases in the northern no-fly zone to the chagrin of the United States, then followed up with an invasion force of 20,000 Turkish soldiers, and in 1995 some 35,000 Turkish soldiers were attacking Kurds in the no-fly zone. Now you can understand why the Turkish Parliament in 2003 refused to grant the United States access to Turkey when it wanted to move its 4th infantry division through Turkey and invade Iraq from the north.

In 1999 Turkish intelligence agents tracked the PKK leader Abdullah Ocalan to Kenya and were able to capture him and bring him to Turkey to be tried. At his trial he was convicted of treason, but he was not executed due to pressure from the European Union (EU).

On July 8, 2004, the deputy chief of the Turkish General Staff in a released statement said, that Turkey's military existence in the north of Iraq would not end until the eradication of the Kurdish Workers Party (PKK). Turkey is currently working with Iranian security forces who are hunting down PKK units on its side of the border between Turkey and Iran. On July 9, 2004, the Iraqis Patriotic Union of Kurdistan (IPUK) leader, Jalai Talabani, issued a press report and stated that the PKK had broken a cease fire agreement among the Kurds, and that some 4000-5000 PKK fighters had resumed their attacks against Turkish targets. He blamed the attacks on Abdullah Ocalan, who is said to be directing his group from prison. Two thousand PKK fighters have filtered back into Turkey to start their fight in the homeland of Turkey.

The most stable part of Iraq, at this time, for the American forces and the new Iraqi government is Kurdistan, where the Kurds have built up an infrastructure for the last ten years and where American soldiers can walk on the streets without the risk of being shot.

WHAT DO THE ISRAELIS WANT IN KURDISTAN
The situation in Israel and the war with the Palestinians has now progressed to a point that the very existence of Israel as a Jewish state is threatened. Despite the fact that Israel is in the possession of some 400 nuclear bombs, some of which are deployed on Israeli submarines, others ready to be launched by rockets, and others to be dropped by aircraft, they cannot "nuke" the Palestinians because of the close proximity. Israel has been condemned by the World Court for building the security barrier, known as "the wall," unemployment is high in Israel and its economy is in shambles. Israel is surviving on massive foreign aid from the United States and from money coming in from Jews living outside Israel. Its people are tired of war and there is a strong peace movement in Israel that is growing. The Zionists are losing control and they are becoming desperate. The nation of Iran is close to building its first nuclear bomb and if Iran continues to build up a nuclear arsenal, it will neutralize Israel's choice of using atomic weapons. It will come to a stalemate, like it was between the Soviet Union and the United States during the cold war.

USS Liberty

Many Christians have not understood that the Zionist leadership has no pity on Gentiles and will go to any length to defend Israel and its policies. On the fourth day of the Six-Day War in 1967, the Israeli Air Force attacked the Navy intelligence ship, USS Liberty, for a sustained air attack of 90 minutes. When the air attack failed, they sent torpedo boats to finish the job. The ship was part of the American sixth fleet, which was stationed in the Mediterranean Sea. Thirty four American sailors were killed, 171 were wounded. The ship did not sink, but was so badly damaged that it had to be scrapped.

USS Liberty
after the attack

The ship was 13 miles off shore from the Egyptian shoreline, which put it outside the border and in international waters. When the Liberty was attacked, its captain sent out a distress call for help which was received by Captain Joseph Tully on the aircraft carrier USS Saratoga. American fighters were scrambled and were in the air in minutes, but en route to defend the Liberty, they were recalled back to the carrier – orders from Washington D.C. 3 When it became obvious to the Israelis that the ship was not going to sink, they withdrew and American warships came to pick up survivors and tow the ship to a U.S. Navy base. 4 The survivors of the Liberty were told not to talk about it, just forget the whole thing. The survivors formed a "support group" and for 37 years have been trying to get a congressional hearing on the attack. The Pentagon refuses to discuss the attack, Congress will not take up any investigations and the attack is being stonewalled. This is the power of special interest groups, in particular THE ZIONIST LOBBY WHICH HAS THE POWER TO SILENCE THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES, CONGRESS, AND THE MILITARY LEADERSHIP AT THE PENTAGON.

Neither must we forget that when the Soviets and the French built a nuclear reactor for Saddam Hussein and they were ready to fire it up on June 7, 1981, the Israeli Air Force, against all international law, violated Syrian and Jordanian air space by flying a bombing raid into Iraq, and destroyed the reactor.

Time is against the Zionists. The Palestinian population is growing larger and larger and the Jews in Israel are on the brink of becoming a minority. The Israeli government cannot maintain a large part of its armed forces on active duty forever. The Israeli economy will crash, just like it happened in the Soviet Union.

News Flash!  News Flash!

On July 15, 2004 the London based Asharg Al-Awsat (A Saudi owned newspaper) reported that 384 members of the al-Qaeda and other terrorist organizations are present in Iran, including 18 senior leaders of Osama bin Laden’s network. The paper cited a senior source in the Iranian presidency, which is in conflict with the ruling hard line Islamic clerics in Iran. The terrorist group is living near Chalous, some 50 miles north of Tehran under tight protection of the Iranian armed forces.

This will explain why the American military command in Iraq is allowing Israeli led Kurd commando groups to infiltrate Iranian territory. Instead of sending in American commando groups to attack the terrorists, they will be taken care of by Israeli led Kurds.

THE KURDS CAN SAVE ISRAEL
With a Kurdish population of around 25 million in the Middle East, spread out in Turkey, Syria, Iraq and Iran, the Kurds can keep these governments unstable and weak for years to come. By aligning Israel with the Kurds, it will be a powerful bargaining chip, and thus the Israeli government can get concessions in return for abandoning the Kurds sometime in the future. Now it is Israel which will be playing the Kurds as a "wild card." This is a deadly game, and one mistake can make the region break out in a major war with a devastation never seen before in this region. The Zionist leadership has made it clear years ago, that if the existence of Israel is threatened, they will use nuclear weapons without hesitation.

In the article by Seymour M. Hersh and published in the New Yorker on June 26, 2004, he writes: "Israel's immediate goal after June 30, 2004, is to build up the Kurdish commando units to balance the Shiite militias – especially those which would be hostile to the kind of order in southern Iraq that Israel would like to see," the former senior intelligence official said. ‘Of course, if a fanatic Sunni Baathist militia took control – one as hostile to Israel as Saddam Hussein was – Israel would unleash the Kurds on it too.’ The Kurdish armed forces, known as the Peshmerga, number an estimated 75,000 troops, a total that far exceeds the known Sunni and Shiite militias. The former Israeli intelligence officer acknowledged that since late last year Israel has been training Kurdish commando units to operate in the same manner and with the same effectiveness as Israel's most secretive commando units, the Mistaravim. The initial goal of the Israeli assistance to the Kurds, the former officer said, was to allow them to do what American commando units had been unable to do-penetrate, gather intelligence on and then kill off the leadership of the Shiite and Sunni insurgencies in Iraq."

Israeli military personnel supported by Kurdish commandos have already infiltrated Iran to install sensors and other sensitive devices that primarily target Iranian nuclear facilities. This should not come as a surprise, since in 1981 Israeli intelligence operators had placed beacons to guide the Israeli fighter bombers when they destroyed the nuclear reactor outside Baghdad.

The American Brigadier General Janis Karpinski was in charge of the military police unit that ran Abu Ghraib and other prisons, when the abuses of Iraqi prisoners took place. In an interview with the British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) on July 3, 2004, she stated that she had run into an Israeli operative who worked as an interrogator at a secret intelligence center in Baghdad. Despite that she was a general and in charge of the prison system, she had no power over the operations led by the CIA. The Israeli foreign ministry said the report is completely untrue.

Iyad Allawi

IRAQ'S NEW INTERIM PRIME MINISTER
Whoever is determining American policies in Iraq is playing with fire. Not only are a number of different Israeli military and intelligence organizations running loose in Iraq, but the very leader picked to lead Iraq to democracy is a man with a very dark history. The American media has reported that Iyad Allawi is an M.D. and specializing as a neurologist, and that since 1971, has lived in England where 20 years ago he founded the anti-Saddam group, called "Iraqi National Accord."

But according to American intelligence, which has worked since World War II in Iraq, Allawi was a loyal Baath party member who was an operator for the Baath party in the late 1960s, when Saddam Hussein struggled to take power in Iraq. The road to power for Saddam Hussein was paved with dead bodies, as all opposition was wiped out by the Baath party enforcers. Allawi was one of them. Reuel Marc Gerecht, a former CIA case officer who served in the Middle East, in an interview with Seymour M. Hersh and published June 27, 2004 said this: "Two facts stand out about Allawi. One, he likes to think of himself as a man of ideas; and, two, his strongest virtue is that he is a thug." Students who attended medical school at the same time as Allawi are questioning his medical credential, stating that it was the Baath party who bestowed a degree upon him.

When he arrived in London in 1971, under the cover to do graduate medical studies, he was in reality a paid agent of the intelligence organization for the Baath party, "the Mukhabarat." Allawi was part of a "hit team," with an assignment to find and kill Baath party dissenters throughout Europe. Later he fell from grace from the Baath party, and three attempts were made to kill him. The third attempt came in 1978, when an axe yielding Iraqi agent broke into his home and tried to murder him. He survived the attack but had to spend one year in a hospital.

THE MIDDLE EAST IS AN AREA RULED BY DECEPTION AND CUT-THROATS
Many people in the West do not know that the majority of people living in the Middle East nations are dishonest, liars, thieves, and traitors having no loyalty.

Some 1900 years ago, the apostle Paul said this:

For there are many unruly and vain talkers and deceivers, specially they of the circumcision: Whose mouths must be stopped, who subvert whole houses, teaching things which they ought not, for filthy lucre's sake. One of themselves, even a prophet of their own, said, The Cretians are alway liars, evil beasts, slow bellies. This witness is true. Wherefore rebuke them sharply, that they may be sound in the faith; Not giving heed to Jewish fables, and commandments of men, that turn from the truth. Titus 1:10-14 5

Ariel Sharon

The religions of Islam and Zionism have created nations of people, with no morals, and they are corrupt politically and also sexually. The current kidnappings in Iraq and Saudi Arabia, with the beheading of the victims testify to the brutality of these people. The Israeli military is not as benign as Israeli propaganda states, but is as brutal in its dealing with opposition as its Islamic counterparts. The current Prime Minister of Israel, Ariel Sharon is known as "THE BUTCHER OF BEIRUT,' and was indicted June 18, 2001 as a war criminal in a court in Brussels, Belgium. A Belgium appeals court threw the case out later that month on an absurd technicality: "The case could not proceed to trial because the accused was not present on Belgium soil."

The Israeli government and the international Jewish community put unbearable pressure on the Belgium government to stop the indictment, threatening a total boycott by Jewish banks and businesses, if the indictment would stand – another example of special interest groups.

MASSACRE IN BEIRUT 1982

Written by Dr. Laurie King-Iran, September 18, 2002
Excerpt taken from her page on website indictsharon.net

On a hot and muggy Saturday morning twenty years ago, a shocking reality came to light in Lebanon. People approaching the contiguous refugee camps of Sabra and Shatila on the outskirts of Beirut that day suspected that dark deeds had taken place in the alleyways, homes, and streets of the camps for a day or more. Three days earlier, Israeli troops and tanks had surrounded the camps as the area came under constant artillery fire.

Israeli Defense Force (IDF) soldiers, commanded by General Ariel Sharon and assisted by Generals Rafael Eitan and Amos Yaron, had prevented anyone from entering or leaving the camp -- anyone, that was, but Israeli-backed, -armed, and -supplied Phalangist militiamen, infamous for their murderous hatred of Palestinians. At night, IDF soldiers had launched illumination flares into the sky to assist these militiamen in their gruesome tasks, the results of which would appall the world by the evening of that September Saturday two decades ago.

Yet even before the journalists, diplomats, Red Cross personnel and others had entered the camps that morning, their worst fears were confirmed by the nauseating smell of putrefying flesh and the audible drone of feasting flies, the only sound to break the stifling silence before the anguished screams of survivors shattered the air. Hardened journalists vomited. Grown men fainted. Seasoned Red Cross representatives were dazed. "I divide my life into before and after Sabra and Shatila," said Elias, a former Red Cross volunteer with whom I worked in Lebanon. "I was not the same person after I saw the severed bodies of babies and the corpses of women with their stomachs ripped open. For weeks, I imagined I could still smell all those bodies stinking in the heat of that morning. It completely altered my view of human nature."

Only seventeen at the time, Elias was among the youngest of those to discover one of the worst atrocities of the post-World War II era in the refugee camps on September 18, 1982. Now approaching his forties, he will never forget that date or its significance.

WHAT CAN CHRISTIANS DO?
By knowing the facts of events happening in our world at this time, we can know how to pray. Most evangelical Christians in the Western world have been led to believe that they must support the Zionist state of Israel at any cost. That this teaching is not to be found in the Bible does not stop the Christian leadership from teaching this to the Christian community.

It will also help us to pray for our president and congressional leaders, knowing the pressure that is bearing down on them from the largest most powerful special interest group in the world, THE ZIONIST LOBBY.

If enough Americans can be educated to know the truth, it will destroy the power this lobby has over America. But as long as they can remain hidden to the general public, they will exert pressure on our political leaders.

It is true that some day the Antichrist will take over the world for a season, but that does not mean that we have to lie down and not resist it. Satan wants to implement his plans before his time is here, and it is up to the believers in Christ to resist and preach the Gospel and bring out the truth. Remember this: Only true believers in Christ will have the will and the power to bring out the truth!

NOTE FROM JOHN S. TORELL
It has taken me some time to gather this material, sift through it, pray over it and write this newsletter which is like an intelligence report for the Christian community. In our last publication of THE FLAMING SWORD, I shared with you that only seven percent of the readers respond financially. The response from the June issue of THE FLAMING SWORD increased the financial response to around 10% and for this we are praising God. But in order for me to be able to produce and mail out this kind of report, we need to be in the range of at least 60%. Would you seriously pray about this matter? Thank you and may the Lord bless you.

2. After Saddam Hussein had been ousted in 2003, displaced Kurds moved back to their old homes and drove out the Arabs, and this created great havoc for the American troops in charge of security.

3. In order for the Israeli command to be able to stop American fighters from protecting the USS Liberty, the Israeli commander must have had a direct line to someone in the military chain of command in Washington D.C., high enough to force American military officers to sacrifice their own ship. This kind of order could only have come from the White House itself as no officer would sacrifice his career for something like this.

4. Later on, it was learned that the Israeli army was executing Egyptian POW’s by the thousands and burying them in mass graves, and the Israeli military command wanted to make sure that the radio communication between Israeli units , as they discussed the massacre, was not picked up by the USS Liberty and reported back to Washington, D.C.

5. When the Bible refers to people of circumcision, it means Jews. Lucre means money.
