About Me

God desires that ALL people would accept God's love and salvation through Jesus Christ. God has compelled me to share information with the world relating to the biblical seven year tribulation in order to share Truth in a deceived world.

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was with God in the beginning. Through Him all things were made; without Him nothing was made that has been made. In Him was life, and that life was the light of men. The light shines in the darkness, but the darkness has not understood it. (John 1:1-5)

Jesus answered, "I AM the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me." (John 14:6)

Georgetown University: 2006 International Prayer for Peace

Rabbi Shear-Yashuv Cohen, chief rabbi of Haifa and president of Ariel Institutions in Israel, said it is vital that people start talking with one another. "We have to search for something that binds us together," Cohen said, adding that followers of Islam, Judaism and Christianity all pray to the same God, base their beliefs on the same writings and place value on the same holy sites. "These are things that should bind us together."

Monthly Encirclement of the Temple Mount

The renewal of the ancient custom began nearly four years ago with a small group, and has since become a very popular event. The marchers express their desire to identify with the Temple Mount by circling the holy site - stopping to pray and sing at each of the gates.

The march takes place at the start of every Jewish month, meeting in the Western Wall plaza toward nightfall and continuing around the outside walls of the Temple Mount. The march is accompanied by prayer and singing and is known as one of the most festive and moving Jerusalem traditions.

Walking alongside the eastern wall of the Temple Mount, passing the Gates of Mercy, now sealed, where tradition has it the Messiah will enter through. Solemn singing and the recitation of Psalms break forth into joyous dancing at the Gates of Mercy.

The monthly encirclement of the Temple Mount is well attended, with up to five thousand participants at times. Women are often the majority at the event.

Congress has sought to call attention to these durable values...the Seven Noahide Laws

Proclamation 5463 -- Education Day, U.S.A., 1986

Proclamation 5317 -- Education Day, U.S.A., 1985

In order to achieve its highest goals, education must be more than just a training in facts and figures, or even in basic skills, as important as they are. It must also include instruction in the deepest ethical values of our civilization.

Very few Americans have done more to promote these ethical values as the basis of civilization than Rabbi Menachem Mendel Schneerson, the leader of the worldwide Lubavitch movement. The word ``Lubavitch'' comes from the name of a Russian city and means city of love. That is very appropriate because, of all the ethical values which inform our civilization, none is more important than love -- love of wisdom, love of our fellowman, and love of our Creator.

These are the values which Rabbi Menachem Mendel Schneerson exemplifies. And they are the values, with their roots in the Seven Noahide Laws, which have guided the Lubavitch movement throughout its history. They are the essence of education at its best, and we should be certain that we pass on this precious heritage to all young Americans.

In recognition of Rabbi Schneerson's contributions and in honor of his 83rd birthday, which falls this year on April 2, the Congress, by House Joint Resolution 186, has designated April 2, 1985, as ``Education Day, U.S.A.'' and authorized and requested the President to issue an appropriate proclamation in observance of this event.

Now, Therefore, I, Ronald Reagan, President of the United States of America, do hereby proclaim Tuesday, April 2, 1985, as Education Day, U.S.A., and I call upon the people of the United States, and in particular our teachers and other educational leaders, to observe that day with appropriate ceremonies and activities.

In Witness Whereof, I have hereunto set my hand this fourth day of April, in the year of our Lord nineteen hundred and eighty-five, and of the Independence of the United States of America the two hundred and ninth.

Congressman Towns Urges Russian President Putin To Return Historic Jewish Texts

Congressman Edolphus Towns - New York 10th Congressional District - Press Releases

Why is the U.S. Congress so interested in these Jewish documents?

Since the early 1990s, the United States Government strongly supported efforts by Chabad to obtain the Schneerson Library. Our efforts were at the level of presidential summits, as well as in cabinet, ambassadorial and working level diplomatic discussions.

In 1992, Acting Secretary of State Lawrence Eagleburger denied the Russian State Library, formerly the Lenin State Library, assistance under the FREEDOM Support Act. He made this decision as a policy matter, based on the Russian State Library’s continued possession of the Schneerson Library. In so doing, Acting Secretary Eagleburger noted that the U.S. Government was committed to seeing the Schneerson Library transferred to its rightful owners and had raised the issue with President Gorbachev and President Yeltsin.

A second subject of the discussions was a library-to-library loan, which was arranged in 1994 between the Russian State Library and the Library of Congress. The loaned books are still in the United States. The terms of the loan have been the cause of continuing disagreement.

This Administration remains committed to working with the Russian Government and the Lubavitch community to resolve this issue. Each of our ambassadors to Russia over the past 15 years has been personally involved in this effort. Our Embassy in Moscow monitors events concerning the Schneerson Collection closely and maintains contact with all of the parties involved.

I also want to acknowledge the helpful and important interventions by Members of Congress on this issue, the most recent being the letter to President Putin signed by all 100 members of the Senate. Senior White House officials conveyed the letter to President Putin’s delegation at the February 24 Bratislava Summit.

Religious Zionist Movement - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Part of a divine scheme which will finally result in the resettlement of the Jewish people in its homeland. This will bring salvation ("Geula") to Jews, and then to the entire world. After world harmony is achieved because of the refoundation of the Jewish homeland Israel, the Messiah will come.

Secular Zionists may think they do it for political, national or socialist reasons, but in fact - the actual reason for them coming to resettle in Israel is a religious Jewish spark ("Nitzotz") in their soul, planted by God. Without their knowledge, they are contributing to the divine scheme and actually committing a great Mitzvah.

The role of religious Zionists is to help them to establish a Jewish state and turn the religious spark in them into a great light. They should show them that the real source of Zionism and the longed-for Zion is Judaism and teach them Torah with love and kindness. In the end, they will understand that the laws of Torah are the key to true harmony and a socialist state (not in the Marxist meaning) that will be a light for the goyim and bring salvation to the world.

In 1956, Mizarchi, Hapoel Hamizrachi and other religious Zionists formed the National Religious Party or Mafdal to advance the rights of religious Jews in Israel.

Religious Zionists are often called "Kippot Sruggot" because of the knitted skull caps that they wear. In Israel, different factions of Orthodox Judaism can be distinguished by the headgear of its members (such as Haredi Ashkenazi, Haredi Mizrahi, Hassidic etc).

Most religious Zionists are right wing supporters and vote for the Mafdal (National Religious Party), Likud (Conservative party) and National Union (nationalist party). However, there is a small minority of left wing religious Zionists. They are headed by Rabbi Michael Malkior and represented by the Meimad party (ran together with the Israeli Labor party).

Dialogue among Civilizations

Delivering a speech at a conference entitled "Dialogue among Civilizations" held on the sidelines of the Arab League summit held in Sudan, Erdogan complained about the way religions continue to struggle to dominate each other.

Beginning his speech with "Bismillahirrahmanirrahim", a traditional way for Arab leaders to begin a speech, Erdogan touched on the crisis that emerged between the West and the Muslim world over the publication of the Prophet Muhammed cartoons in various European newspapers. He stressed that freedom of expression should have some limits. "The Muslim approach to other religions is as follows: Both Jesus Christ and Muhammed are our prophets," said the Turkish prime minister, stressing that Muslims expect the same approach from followers of other religions.

Underlining that the world shouldn't be deceived by those who seek a "clash of civilizations," Erdogan also called for cooperation in fighting terrorism.

Concerning sharing of intelligence, Erdogan urged the international community to be more open on the issue.

"There's been a cold war between values," said the prime minister, warning that the consequences might be devastating.

The US-based Darfur Coalition is comprised of the American Jewish World Service, the American Society for Muslim Advancement, the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops, the National Association of Evangelicals, Amnesty International, the United States Holocaust Museum, the National Black Church Initiative and a number of regional and local organizations.

The country is still geographically and politically divided between Muslims on the one hand and Christians and members of traditional African religions on the other. But in recent months there have been steps towards a settlement of some long-standing disputes.

In the US a major demonstration will take place on 30 April 2006 under the slogan, “Rally to Stop Genocide”. It will gather between 2-4pm on the National Mall, between Third and Fourth streets in front of the US Capitol Metro Station Federal Centre SW.

Speakers will include Presidential Medal of Freedom recipient Paul Rusesabagina, who risked his life to save more than 1,000 people at the hotel he managed during the genocide in Rwanda. Christian, Jewish and Muslim leaders will also address the rally.

International Conference on Constructive Interaction Among Religions

The "International Conference on Constructive Interaction Among Religions", discussing legal-political, cultural-historical and religious-ethical topics, was billed as the first international attempt in the world of Islam to unite religious leaders and thinkers from basically four monotheistic religions - Islamic, Christian, Jewish, Zoroastrian - so they could study the "problems and obstacles in the way of the growing trend of religious spirituality in the world".

The conference, set up by the Islamic Culture and Relations Organization, which is directly linked to Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, was definitely a political gesture.

In many aspects, it was an extraordinary sight. Right at the heart of the Islamic Republic, one could see Rabbi Moshe Friedman, the hyperactive chief rabbi of the Orthodox anti-Zionist community in Vienna, lashing out at Zionist control of the world economy and media. New Delhi-based Swami Agnivesh, a proponent of "applied spirituality", in full sartorial orange splendor, was denouncing that "conventional weapons kill more people than the so-called weapons of mass destruction". And Dr Bawa Jain, the New York-based secretary general of the World Council of Religious Leaders, was dreaming of politicians really having to pay attention to religious feelings.

World summit of religious leaders due in Moscow in July this year.

The world summit of religious leaders in Moscow, initiated by the Russian Inter-Religious Council with our Church's direct involvement, will be a convention of the leaders of the most influential religious communities, including the Christian, Judaic, Muslim, Buddhist and some others. The summit will be a presentation of contemporary religious traditions in all their diversity.

Dialogue is being maintained chiefly through the Interreligious Council set up in 1997, which brings together representatives of the four largest religions in Russia, i.e. the Orthodoxy, Islam, Judaism, and Buddhism. The dialogue is aimed primarily at finding ways to resolve the most urgent problems that society faces.

I can reaffirm that our relations are developing successfully, despite attempts by some foreign centers and homebred extremists to test religious peace in Russia.I am sure that the wisdom of religious leaders, primarily Islamic ones, will make these attempts fruitless.

Exchange of opinions and cooperation in social affairs between various religions does not exclude doctrinal debates, which are aimed at helping clarify the sides' positions regarding problems that call for a thorough philosophical analysis. For instance, Tehran hosted the 5th meeting of the Russian-Iranian commission on dialogue between Islam and the Orthodoxy in late February and early March. The meeting dealt with "Eschatology and Its Influence on Modern Life." The discussion exposed both similarities and differences on these issues between the Christian and Islamic doctrines. The participants in the meeting also strongly denounced the increasing instances of insults of believers' feelings in various countries.

In the end, the best way to fight extremism is through education. A true believer and educated person will never become an extremist, fanatic, or aggressive nationalist. This is why our Church is insisting that schoolchildren be taught about various peoples and religions and, what is most important, about their own faith and culture, be it Orthodox, Islamic, Judaic, Buddhist, or some other. Without the right education, we will never get rid of our social vices. It is through school, culture, and the media that people should be taught patriotism, morals in private life, family and society, and a careful and respectful attitude to those surrounding them.

Confront China’s Support for Iran’s Nuclear Weapons

In a September 2005 speech, Deputy Secretary of State Robert Zoellick asked, “For the United States and the world, the essential question is, how will China use its influence?”

For all practical purposes, the answer is clear: China’s influence is destabilizing the international nonproliferation system. It has protected North Korea for decades, and now Chinese diplomacy protects Iran from the punitive sanctions that have been essential to the enforcement of the Nuclear Nonproliferation Treaty against other countries, such as South Africa and Libya.

The Bush Administration should cease pretending that China’s involvement in Iranian nuclear weapons negotiations has been constructive and publicly question China’s motives. It should confront Beijing’s subtle but substantial support for Iranian nuclear weapons, advanced conventional weapons, and other security programs. Public statements of disappointment over China’s support for North Korea and Iran’s nuclear ambitions would help clear the air and deny China diplomatic leverage. But as long as China can appear to be a “constructive” participant in resolving the crisis, China can claim to be an “honest broker” between the U.S. and nuclear pariahs.

This message must be loud and clear and public—at the United Nations, at the IAEA, during the semi-annual “strategic senior dialogues” between Deputy Secretary Zoellick and his Chinese counterpart Dai Bingguo,[7] and above all, at the summit between President George Bush and Chinese president Hu Jintao this week.

Chernobyl death toll will be much higher, Gorbachev's Greenpeace says

CBC News: Chernobyl death toll will be much higher, Greenpeace says

Gorbachev sets his sights on a greener world

On the eve of the 20th anniversary of the Chernobyl nuclear disaster, he is launching a twin appeal to persuade the world’s leading governments to set aside at least $50bn (€41bn, £28bn) to develop renewable energy supplies, and to seek a more modest $50m from the private sector to galvanise efforts to provide healthcare for Chernobyl victims, and guarantee clean water and sanitation for the world’s poorest people.

One month after his 75th birthday, Mr Gorbachev is back on the road preaching his new green gospel to audiences in America, Asia and Europe, to raise money for Green Cross International, the non-governmental environmental pressure group he has chaired since 1993.

His first target is to persuade the business community that financing environmental campaigns for clean water and basic sanitation, plus renewable energy supplies, is in their commercial interest, as well as being socially responsible. His second is to galvanise civil society to support the campaign, and persuade national parliaments to press their governments into greater support for sustainable energy.

Mr Gorbachev is writing to the parliaments of all the Group of Eight nations meeting in St Petersburg in June, where energy security has been put top of the agenda by President Vladimir Putin. He will urge the parliamentarians to lobby for more attention to be paid to renewable energy, rather than just securing supplies of oil and gas, plus a boost for nuclear power.

Leading rabbi expresses yearning to take control of the Temple Mount

There have been other attempts to renew this sacrifice over the years, or at least to solve the Halakhic problems involved. Speaking about the rabbis who came to the Holy Land 700 years ago and sought to pave the way to offer the Pesach lamb, Rabbi Ariel said,
"It is simply disgraceful when we compare our actions with theirs. They were here after the Crusaders, when there were perhaps 1,000 Jews in the whole land, which was totally desolate, and tried to renew this commandment. And yet we have 5-6 million Jews, and we have an army with tanks and planes, and what are we doing? ... Over 2,000 years ago, the Jews were afraid to live in Jerusalem, yet they made it obligatory for one out of every ten men to work towards building the Holy Temple, and they started the sacrifice services amidst the ruins of the First Temple. And where are we? Should we not be ashamed?"

Do not be fooled by Satan's subtle ways. This is all part of Satan's plan which will culminate very very soon. He will bring a false world peace that will only last a short time. He will present a false Messiah through the Jews. The false Messiah will be permitted to have powers that will convince most of the world that he is the Messiah. He will convince many Jews, Muslims, and Christians, etc.

Through this worldwide deception, he will cause wars to stop. The liberal elite will endorse him and encourage the world to follow him. Anyone that does not accept this new world view will be ostracized.

'Strike on Iran to trigger global terror'

Iran has formed battalions of suicide bombers to strike at British and American targets if the nation’s nuclear sites are attacked, British newspaper The Sunday Times reprted. The paper quoted Iranian officials who stated that 40,000 trained suicide bombers are ready for action.

"Iran has forces at its command that are far superior to anything al-Qaeda was ever able to field. The Lebanese terrorist organization Hizbullah has a global reach, and has served in the past as an instrument of Iran," they wrote.

Satellites launched spaceward Friday on a mission to study the Earth

An Orbital Sciences-built Minotaur rocket shot the multi-satellite mission into orbit at 9:40 p.m. EDT (0140 April 15 GMT) from California’s Vandenberg Air Force Base.

“You guys did a fantastic job,” said William Kuo, director of the COSMIC office at the University Corporation for Atmospheric Research (UCAR) in Boulder, Colorado, to launch controllers just after the sixth COSMIC satellite was deployed in orbit.

UCAR designed the satellite system used for COSMIC’s planned two-year mission, but about $80 million of the mission’s cost was covered by Taiwan’s National Science Council and National Space Organization.

The U.S. National Science Foundation and its partners – which included NASA, the U.S. Air Force Space Test Program, the Office of Naval Research and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration – covered the rest.

Each of the six COSMIC satellites – known together as FORMOSAT 3 in Taiwan – is just a few inches wide and weighs about 137 pounds (62 kilograms). Originally developed by Orbital Sciences for the ORBCOMM data communications network, the probes were modified for the COSMIC mission and are expected to reach their final circular orbits – between 435 and 500 miles (700 and 800 kilometers) above Earth – in about 13 months.

constellation of satellites to provide atmospheric data daily in real time over thousands of points on Earth

COSMIC satellites will take approximately 2,500 measurements every 24 hours in a nearly uniform distribution around the globe. Because the satellites’ radio signals pierce thick cloud cover and precipitation, weather conditions will not interfere with data gathering.

The altered signals are to be turned into valuable views of humidity and temperature throughout the lower atmosphere. Information about the electrical structure of the upper atmosphere, Earth’s gravitational field, and other data will also be extracted. Researchers and forecasters around the world will have access to the data via the Internet.

Temperature and water vapor profiles derived from the GPS data should prove helpful to meteorologists that observe, research, and forecast hurricanes, typhoons, and other storm patterns over the oceans, as well as improve many areas of weather prediction. The stability, consistency, and accuracy of the measurements should be a boon to scientists quantifying long-term climate change trends, according to COSMIC experts at UCAR.

Additionally, COSMIC measurements of electron density in the ionosphere are expected to enhance analysis and forecasting of space weather, including geomagnetic storms that can disrupt sensitive satellite and communications systems and even impact power grids on the ground.

The COSMIC system is a gap-filler of sorts. It will yield data over vast stretches of the oceans where there are no weather balloon observations. And the data’s high vertical resolution will complement the high horizontal resolution measurements of several now-on-duty weather satellites.

Moreover, COSMIC will produce approximately 2,500 occultation soundings, which would provide nearly uniform coverage around the globe, Kuo added. "This is particularly important for weather prediction and climate monitoring over the oceans and remote areas."

Kuo noted: "We can get high quality sounding to within 1,640 feet (500 meters) of the surface…even over the tropics. This will provide valuable information on atmospheric water vapor, which is important for hurricane and severe weather prediction."

"I am very excited about the project. The planning for this started in the fall of 1997. Nine years have passed since then. I firmly believe that COSMIC will revolutionize atmospheric remote sensing for weather prediction, climate monitoring, and space weather forecasting. GPS radio occultation technique is very accurate, of high vertical resolution, and is also very cost-effective," Kuo said. "It is a once in a lifetime experience," Kuo concluded.

Shimon Peres urged the world to unite against Iran

Mr Peres, one of Israel's senior statesmen and a potential senior cabinet member in Israel's new government-in-the-making, replied that: "What the Iranian president says is reminiscent of Saddam Hussein's proclamations, and Ahmadinejad will meet the same end as he did.

"The Iranian president represents Satan and not God. History has rejected these sorts of sword-brandishing lunatics," said Mr Peres.

U.S., Israel can't just wait

"Iran wants to see the destruction of Israel and the U.S.

• The U.S. will not be the first to launch a strike against Iran as long as Israel is involved. And since Israel is at the front, it will be, if forced, the first to launch a strike because Iran has pledged to wipe Israel off the map. Do you really think Israel will stand by and do nothing after Iran’s threat?

This is very interesting and serious food for thought, especially in light of your sarcastic editorial. Let’s take a look at the real world and ask, are Israel and the U.S. supposed to do nothing? Let’s hope Iran wakes up before it has the ability to make Israel or an American city glow in the dark. Israel and the U.S. can’t stand by and wait for that. That’s the reality of it."

Iran’s Supreme Leader blasts Israel

Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei accused on Friday Israel of “openly committing crimes” and said that the era of Muslim awakening in the Middle East had arrived.

Khamenei was speaking at a three-day conference, dubbed “International Conference of Holy Qods and Support for the Rights of the Palestinian Nation”, being held for the third year in Tehran. He said “jihad” was not only taking place in “occupied Palestine and Qods (Jerusalem)” but all over the “Islamic world”.

State-run media have given widespread coverage to the event in the days leading to it. The official news agency has reported that some 600 foreign officials including 20 parliament speakers from Syria, Lebanon, Algeria, Sudan, Indonesia, Uganda, Cameroon, Congo, Zimbabwe, Sierra Leon, Cuba, Comoros, Madagascar, Malaysia, Qatar, Mauritania, Mauritius, the Seychelles, Sri Lanka and Guinea would take part in the event.

TV stations challenge FCC profanity decisions�|�Reuters.com

Major U.S. television networks and their affiliates said on Friday they have asked appeals courts to overturn decisions by regulators finding broadcasters violated decency standards by airing profanity.

Walt Disney Co.'s ABC Inc. and Hearst-Argyle's Kansas City affiliate filed a similar appeal in the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia. More than 800 television network affiliates joined the court efforts.

An FCC spokeswoman countered the legal challenges by noting that the Supreme Court 20 years ago upheld a decision that found indecent comedian George Carlin's monologue about the seven dirty words that cannot be said on television and radio.

"Today Disney, Fox, and CBS challenged that precedent and argued they should be able to air two of those same words," said the spokeswoman Tamara Lipper. "The commission is reviewing their filings and will defend its order."

Jerusalem Seminar Presents Ancient Kabbalah in Bold, New Light

The Blind Try to Show Others the Path to Enlightenment

This summer, in Jerusalem, a new pathbreaking seminar teaches Kabbalah from traditional, academic,and experiential perspectives. Students will learn with leading scholars, meet with local mystics and be inspired by spiritual teachers (July 3-22, 2006).

Jerusalem Seminar Presents Ancient Kabbalah in Bold, New Light

A Critique of "New Age" Kabbalah

Kabbalists, that consider themselves more serious, critique "new age" Kabbalists. Both groups have chosen to be deceived by Satan.

In the last two decades of the twentieth century, Torah and Kabbalah have come to play a key role in the New Age. On the one hand, Kabbalistic groups, most prominent among them followers of Rabbi Yehuda Ashlag (1885-1954), the author of the "Sulam" commentary on the Zohar, have absorbed values and practices from general cultures of mysticism; on the other hand, these schools have spread Kabbalistic teachings to an unprecedented degree, ultimately creating an international Kabbalistic movement, the Kabbalah Centre International, that has devotees far beyond the confines of Jewish world, the most famous example being, of course, Madonna.

Even the Kabbalah of Abraham Abulafia, the most focused on mystical experience, is interested in experience not for its own sake but for the purpose of receiving prophecy. Those who engage in New Age spirituality for the purpose of "getting high" are, according to such figures, missing the point.

In addition, mystics of many religious traditions have rejected the use of mystical practices for the sake of personal material gain. In the Jewish world, Kabbalists traditionally emphasized practices intended for serving the needs of the divine realm, and not simple human needs such as personal advancement. According to Rabbi Meir ben Ezekiel Ibn Gabbai, amongst the great Kabbalists of the 16th century, a person mixing intentions of personal gain with mystical practice is akin to one who "brings uncleanness into the Temple and profanes the Holy of Holies." (Avodat HaKodesh 2, 6) Even those Kabbalists such as Rabbi Hayyim Vital – the major disciple of the "Ari" (Rabbi Yitzhak Luria) – who were more tolerant of those seeking personal gain emphasized that the Kabbalist should receive "his portion only at the end" (Shaarei Kedusha 3, 8). Traditional mainstream Kabbalistic traditions hold that one of the main goals of Kabbalah is human responsibility for serving the divine realm through mystical practice. Kabbalists affiliated with these traditional streams note time and time again that the Kabbalistic path is securely aligned with divine service though fulfillment of commandments and perfection of personal conduct. Rabbi Hayyim Vital, for example, lists complete obligation for the commandments and intensive examination of personal conduct as preconditions for any valid experience of prophecy via mystical practice (Shaarei Kedusha 3, 3). Kabbalistic literature teaches students a variety of internal, personal limits for controlling the study and use of esoteric knowledge in addition to well-known external restrictions such as age, Torah knowledge, and family status. And yet as is well known, the Kabbalah Centre and others regularly promise all variety of personal and financial gain to adherents, also stating that the benefits of Kabbalah are available to all.

It is easy to identify the deep differences in traditional and contemporary approaches to personal power by comparing a text such Nefesh Hahayyim by Rabbi Hayyim of Volozhin – a major student of the Gaon of Vilna in the 19th century – which is essentially a song of praise for the sacrifice of the individual dissolving personal desires for the good of the power of the Torah – to contemporary Kabbalistic writings that describe the personal power and personal gain one can obtain by studying Kabbalah. Note, for example, the title of a "pop Kabbalah" book by Yehudah Berg, a follower of the school of Rabbi Ashlag and director of the Kabbalah Centre: The Red String Book: The Power of Protection (Technology for the Soul). Emphasis on "personal power" is a part of the fusion of these schools of contemporary Kabbalah with the New Age, a blurring of the core Jewish elements of Kabbalah.

The Origin of Speeches: Intelligent Design in Language

This book is being used in an attempt to help promote the Children of Noah cult.

Book Subtitle: From the Language of Eden to Our Babble After Babel

Our current academics and reference books consider the Tower of Babel account to be a quaint Genesis “myth.” True, linguists now think there once WAS a universal human language, but they assume that it evolved chaotically, and that it also de-evolved naturally and chaotically over millennia.

Now comes an epical book that documents the language of the earliest modern humans. Let’s call them Adam and Eve, and let’s call that global Mother Tongue “Edenic.” Surely our current 6,000 languages grew from migrations and such, but this book proves that there was a “Big Bang” that diversified that special original, global language.

The Origin of Speeches begins by recapping the history of our views about the source of language. It then debunks the errors that infuse your dictionary, like those about how words in “unrelated” languages could only have identical sound and sense by “coincidence.” It does so with both quality and quantity of data. The next chapters give anyone the skills to sleuth out the Edenic origin of any human word. One learns about letters that shift in sound and location, and letters that drop in and drop out. We discover how Edenics works much like other natural sciences, such as chemistry and physics. Like-sounding opposite words were certainly programmed, not pragmatically evolved.

Rabbinical Kosher Excise Tax paid by Gentiles

For many Gentile consumers, it comes as a shock to realize that they pay a Jewish tax on each and every pre-packaged food item with a "U" or "K" stamp on the package, with some of these fees possibly going to support Zionists in Israel. The Union of Orthodox Jews (symbolized by the "U" within a circle) and the Circle-K (for Kashruth or, Kosher) are the two main organizations within the United States that issue Kosher-certification and its accompanying tax, though there are 273 other Kosher-certification organizations that have other symbols within the U.S. alone.

According to the Kosher-certification agency Star-K, "Integrated Marketing Communications reports that approximately 2.5 million Jews consume kosher food products." So what about the other 297.5 million people in the United States? Why are we then forced to pay for their Jewish religious dietary habits; why are we forced to pay for the Rabbinical Kosher Excise Tax?

Of course, if the Jewish agency that charges the Rabbinical Kosher Excise Tax would care to make available how much it charged this company in real dollars for the previous year, that would be a start to being honest. But, if you carefully examine the Web, you will not find one company that has reported this fee paid to the rabbis. Why is this? From a logical standpoint, it stands to reason that the rabbis must have some type of confidentiality agreement in which if the company reveals its cost it is then penalized to a certain extent. What other reasoning could there be that not one single company discloses its costs associated with the Rabbinical Kosher Excise Tax?

The ADL then goes on to cite a company that reportedly had its business increase as a result of Kosher certification. Is this true? Possibly. One must keep in mind, however, what Dr. Prytulak refers to as the "Pyramid Scheme" at his website. In effect, this is how it works: A large company is courted by Jews, who fill the company's heads with promises of a greater market appeal -- but only, of course, if they pay this initially "small fee" (in comparison with the company's total business) for certification. The company agrees. However, now the company must buy all its supplies from other "Kosher companies." Aside from the obvious need to purchase food products from Kosher suppliers, a company might even have to purchase the steel for its manufacturing process and the cleaning supplies from Kosher companies, to name just a couple other items now considered Kosher. In any event, if the suppliers do not give the main company a Kosher product, the company cannot do business with them. (After all, products prepared by lowly Gentile companies do not meet the Jewish religious dietary standards as set forth by rabbis -- without due compensation, anyway.) In effect, if your company happens to be one of the suppliers to another company, you risk much business by failing to abide by the Jewish ‘standards’ (and, of course, paying them the accompanying fees).

Is the extra business really there for companies that decide to go Kosher? Not according to some businesses. The Albuquerque Tribune reported one bagel company as wanting to be certified Kosher, but "the expense was more than the ... bagel company could muster." The owner stated, "We occasionally get asked for it but not that often." Another company decided to drop its "Star-K certification after one year." The owner of that company reported, "Kosher wasn't opening up any markets for me. I thought it was too much for my little operation."

"Many Kosher producers believe that Muslims accept Kosher as being Halal. In fact, Muslims do not accept Kosher certification as being a substitute for Halal certification. Some Muslims may have believed that Kosher slaughter was similar to Halal, but they are learning that this is not true and are demanding Halal certified products. Internationally, only proper Halal certification is acceptable and monitoring agencies are being established to ensure compliance."

There is one major difference (that even I know of) between the Halal method of slaughter and that of the Kosher method. The Halal method is actually done in a more humane manner, as it allows the animal to be stunned first. However, this is not the case with Kosher slaughter, which requires the animal to experience the full amount of pain and be fully conscious.

This figure of costs associated with the Rabbinical Kosher Excise Tax is largely unknown due to Jews not disclosing how much they charge to the various companies that receive Kosher certification. In perhaps what can only be viewed as a mistake by the rabbis who oversee the Rabbinical Kosher Excise Tax, in 1987 they disclosed that they expected Kosher steel to bring them $700,000.00 in fees per year.(8)

How much is the total cost today? While the figure is unknown, there are other things we can tell. For instance, according to both Star-K Kosher certification and EBizAsiaLink, $165 billion worth of food received Kosher certification in 2002.(9) But does this $165 billion figure also include non-food products such as steel and aluminum foil, which are not actually Kosher "food" items despite the fees that are paid and certification received?(10) Probably not, so the figure may be much greater. Another figure that we can look at to determine cost is taken from an article appearing in the Detroit News. It stated that one Kosher certification company brought in an estimated $20 million.(11) (It is not known whether this figure of $20 million is actual net profits, or gross business.) You begin to understand how much money we are talking about when you realize, as stated at the beginning of this article, that there are 275 such Kosher-certification organizations in the United States, and a total of 400 worldwide.(12)

It must be recognized that in addition to the fees paid to rabbis for the Rabbinical Kosher Excise Tax, there are other fees that a company might incur simply in an effort to ensure that its product is indeed Kosher. For example, they could not process pork or non-Kosher beef on the same equipment as Kosher beef, lest it be "contaminated." Equipment might then have to be added or changed. Suppliers might need to be changed. Special training would need to be administered. Perhaps, even a full-time rabbi might need to be hired to oversee the production.

The total costs associated with the Rabbinical Kosher Excise Tax are much higher than the ADL would have you believe.

Japan launches digital TV on mobile phones

Technology plays a big part in the biblical seven year tribulation.

Handsets have been on the market in Japan for several weeks that are equipped with the service, which can also broadcast programs onto laptop computers, high-end videogame machines and other terminals.

The service will be free for now and programming will be the same as on home televisions as mobile operators examine whether One Seg will prove to be popular.

"In the short-term, digital terrestrial broadcasting on mobiles with the same programming as normal televisions will be of little interest for us," Masao Nakamura, CEO of Japan's top mobile operator NTT DoCoMo, said recently.

"But we are getting ready by preparing new specific content for the service that could come into use later when new channels are available," he said.

The movies can be permanently stored on the hard drive of a computer to create a permanent archive or burned to a disc in Windows Media format for backup or playback on up to two additional tethered computers.

The movies can also be downloaded to a notebook computer for traveling and users can stream their copy of the movie to a television set connected to a media center extender or an Xbox.

"I don't know that the studios will see major income from this at first, as it takes about 90 minutes to download and it's unclear whether people currently have the ability to do that, but it's a good beginning," Cooper said.

"Video-on-demand and downloadable films is a very big part of our future and even if it doesn't immediately yield big revenue, it's here to stay," he added.

In the Midwest we have a huge Arab Muslim population in Chicago and in Detroit and a huge Jewish population in both towns. Increasingly we have more Indians who are predominantly, but not exclusively Hindus.

Many who went on the media attack did more than imply. On April 3, for instance, the same day that The Philadelphia Inquirer reprinted Boot’s piece from the L.A. Times, a notably similar Op-Ed appeared in The Boston Herald under the headline “Anti-Semitic Paranoia at Harvard.”

And so it goes in the national media echo chamber. When a Johns Hopkins University professor weighed in Wednesday on the Op-Ed page of The Washington Post, the headline was blunt: “Yes, It’s Anti-Semitic.” The piece flatly called the Mearsheimer-Walt essay “kooky academic work”—and “anti-Semitic.”

Zionism was, and is, the movement of national liberation of the Jewish people, and ended up being one of the most successful national liberation movements.

The ambassador said Tehran conference would provide an important chance to disclose conspiracies of the 'Zionist' regime to judaize Qods and change its geographical characteristics.

It would be also an appropriate opportunity to defend the legal rights of the Palestinian people and help them resist oppression.

The conference, dubbed `Qods and Support for the Rights of the Palestinian People', is to be held in Tehran from April 14-16 upon the initiative of Supreme Leader Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei.

Parliament speakers of Islamic states will participate in the conference.

Hassan added the conference would provide a great opportunity for Arab and Islamic nations and intellectual and cultural elites in particular to support the Palestinians in their confrontation with the 'Zionist' regime's crimes.

He said a large number of parliament speakers and deputies of Arab and Islamic states as well as cultural and political figures would participate in the Tehran conference which shows a strong will to support the Palestinian issue.

The conference is expected to discuss latest developments in Palestine, plots to destroy its nation and ignore its just rights, crimes of occupiers in Palestine to put its nation under pressure and avenues to guarantee support for the Palestinian nation's resistance.

Asked about the measures Muslims must take in the face of the 'Zionist' regime's plots to destroy Qods and ban Muslims' visit to this holy site, the Syrian official said the regime's plan to judaize the Holy Qods and change its map is currently being implemented.

He noted aggression on al-Aqsa mosque was an attack on Islam and Muslims and a part of the plan now being carried out by certain Western circles from Washington to Tel Aviv aim to exert pressure on Muslims and attribute terrorism to them.

The diplomat urged Muslims and Arabs to protect holy sites and Islamic heritages through their unity.

He praised the initiative of Founder of the Islamic Revolution the late Imam Khomeini in designating the last Friday of holy month of Ramazan as the International Qods Day.

Understanding American psyche

True anti-Semitism may have evolved in the “passions” of European Christiandom, but the stepchild of that anti-Semitic hatred is born and bred in the cornfields of the American Bible belt.

In judging Americans, Arabs and Israelis are forced to weigh the challenge using the “lesser of two evils” formula.

Most Israelis know that Evangelical support for Israel is actually based on the belief that Jews will also perish in the bonfires of hell as fast as all other non-Christians who do not embrace Jesus.

But Americans are very articulate at the profession of the “spin.” The “spin” was born in the American melting pot. The vast majority of Americans are Christian, and while they worship in churches of various and often warring and competing Christian denominations, their biggest temple is the Church of the Latter Day Communications (television).

Hamas against the world

During the short period since the swearing-in of the Hamas government, the U.S. administration and Congress have cut off commercial, economic and foreign aid ties with Palestine. The European Union has yet to take that step, but there, too, senior officials have refused monetary aid and have broken economic or diplomatic ties with official and semi-official PA institutions, and international aid organizations have quietly begun pulling their workers out of PA areas and halting many joint activities with the PA.

The earlier Israel and the international community work to bring down the Hamas government, the better it will be for everyone. Hamas must not be allowed to function, or even raise its head.


Preventing the Iranization of the Palestinian Authority is not just an Israeli interest. It is an interest of the entire Middle East, and of the entire world. The Hamas revolution will not stop at the border crossings of Gaza and the West Bank.

Regarding Iran: Israel has recently sent warnings to the White House that the “point of no return” is very rapidly approaching

According to a Washington Post report, despite American intelligence community reports that Tehran is about a decade away from building an atom bomb, Israel has recently sent warnings to the White House that the “point of no return” is very rapidly approaching, only months away, calling for American intervention.

The New Yorker Magazine reports America is planning to use bunker-busting bombs against nuclear facilities throughout Iran.

Rabbi: Jews should know New Testament

After all, the world needs to know how to tell us Christians how misinformed we are.

Most Jews shun Christian Scripture. As a result, they can't answer Christians who ask why Jews don't accept Jesus as the Messiah. Now, Reform Rabbi Michael J. Cook says this "self-imposed ignorance" is dangerous.

In a book he plans to publish next year, "Modern Jews Engage the New Testament," he will present an education plan for how Jews can learn enough to answer "why they process it differently from Christians."

Many scholars agree that Jews would benefit from studying the Christian texts.


They say it could improve interfaith relations, especially on the local level where rabbis are expected to work with fellow clergy from other denominations.

The Jews' big push to find out who is really a Jew

During the biblical seven year tribulation, there is a need to be able to positively identify who is a Jew (the chosen) and who is a Gentile (the not-so-chosen).

Since 2000, around 13,000 Israelis emigrated to Canada

According to Gidron, since 1948, 65,000 Israelis emigrated to Canada.

Most Israelis who arrived in Canada, some 50,000, relocated to Toronto, and now form a quarter of the city's 200,000-strong Jewish population.

It is believed that around 15 – 20,000 of the Israeli immigrants to Canada came from the Soviet Union, from which they emigrated to Israel, before arriving in Canada.

The Absorption Ministry is encouraged by figures showing a return of Israelis who left for Canada. In the last three years, 600 – 700 Israelis have returned every year. The reason: Reports that the employment and security situation in Israel has improved.

Mirla Gal, Director General of the Absorption Ministry, said: "I am very sorry for the Israelis who chose to leave, but from these figures, it is clear that the neighbor's grass is not necessarily better. Here in Israel, we have home grass."

The police and military are moving to high terrorism alert starting tomorrow.

In a related development, security authorities reported that a person with affiliations to the international Islamist terror organization Al-Qaeda was taken into custody in Hizme, adjacent to Jerusalem's northern border on Friday. According to the report, the PA resident was enlisted to operate on behalf of Al-Qaeda in PA autonomous areas. He was turned over to General Security Services for interrogation.

"And I declare here, that this false state (Israel) has to be demolished, sooner or later. America will not remain the sole world power forever. Time will come when this superpower will be dissipated to nothing. And the signs for this dissipation is quite obvious, I can see it quite clearly.

Tel Aviv To Become Gay Capital Of The World

During the biblical period, the coastal area of modern day Israel was inhabited by the Philistines, while the Israelites lived in the hilly regions. The cultic practices of the Philistines included temple prostitution, noted for its debauchery, and the worship of multiple gods. In contrast, the children of Israel worshipped one God and were given a code of ethics, called the Torah (Gen.–Deut.). In the Torah, homosexual activity was forbidden. Interestingly, In Israel today, the more liberal, secular society tends to live in the coastal areas, and the more Torah observant live in the inland and more hilly areas, just as in days of old.

There is a fight on for the soul of Israel and the Jewish people. The largest divide between the Jewish people is the one between secular and religious. This can be seen in all areas of society–from politics, to neighborhood disputes, schools, and army service. Approximately 60% of the Jewish population consider themselves secular.

Hamas threatens revenge

Hamas' military wing, the al-Qassam Brigades, has joined the Palestinian organizations threatening to attack Israel.

Earlier, Fatah's al-Aqsa Martyrs Brigades and the al-Quds Brigades of the Islamic Jihad, as well as the Salah al-Din Brigades of the Popular Resistance Committee threatened an unprecedented response against Israel.


Meanwhile, Hamas spokesmen and ministers in the government rejected reports in the press that the organization is ready to adopt a political solution based on two states living side by side.

Bush 'planning nuclear Iran strike'

The U.S. government is planning to carry out massive bombardment against Iran and using bunker-busting nuclear bombs in order to destroy facilities and development centers in which nuclear weapons exist. These details will be exposed in a new report as part of an investigation in the New Yorker, to be publicized April 17.

In the course of the article, a former Defense Minister clerk tells the New Yorker that the White House is planning “a sustained bombing campaign in Iran will humiliate the religious leadership and lead the public to rise up and overthrow the government.” He added, “I was shocked when I heard it, and asked myself, ‘What are they smoking?’”

The Importance of Noahide laws (Not!)

Mankind has already come once to a breakdown of values that led to the destruction of most of the world's population at the time of the Great Flood. Afterwards, the Creator commanded Noah and his sons, who were the kernel from which the human race continued, concerning the "Seven Noahide Laws". These seven basic laws contain the basic morals for maintaining a healthy and just civilization.

This allows for the diversity and cultural plurality of mankind while uniting in faith in the Creator and with the Seven Noahide Laws providing a common moral foundation to human existence.

Moses who recieved the Torah from G-d spread the message of these Seven Noahide Laws and commanded us to influence all the nations of the world to accept them. One who keeps these laws because G-d commanded Moses on Mt. Sinai merits divine reward from G-d for keeping them.

The purpose of these commandments is to make the world should be settled and not barren, G-d forbid. These laws assure the continued existence of the world and all its inhabitants. One who abandons these basic values forfeits in this way his right to exist because his actions bring about the opposite of settling the world.

The Antichrist will finalize "the details of the 7M ... for BN"

Let's agree on terms. The First Covenant is the Noahide or Rainbow Covenant; the Law of the First Covenant is mankind's Universal Law. Known in Hebrew as the sheva mitzvot b'nai noach - the Seven Commandments of the Descendants of Noah - Jewish scholars generally refer to it simply as the sheva mitzvot or mitzvos (mitzvot is Israeli pronunciation, mitzvos is mainstream Orthodox American). We'll be calling the seven mitzvos the 7M.

People talk about a unified, monolithic "Noahide movement" when they can't even agree on a spelling of Noahide. People talk about following "Noahide (or No'achide) leaders" as if being a Torah scholar was like being a New Age guru or the pope of a new religion. People talk about the 7M like it's a strict set of detailed rules when it's really a set of values and a framework for righteousness and justice. It's not a narrow rut but a lovely broad straight highway.

One of the odd things about the 7M system is that it, unlike the Law that makes up the Ten Commandments system, isn't spelled out in detail in the Torah. So even a real scholar can know a great deal of Torah but still completely misunderstand the basic nature of the 7M. Ray and I, and all the principals of the First Covenant Foundation (FCF), have seen a lot of this. There simply isn't all that much in the Torah that speaks directly to the matter of the 7M. Even in Maimonides' Mishneh Torah, the single greatest source-book we have for the 7M, it comes up almost entirely in the context of End Times matters. (Which makes a lot of sense, when you think about it: only near the end of human history as we've known it, close to the beginning of the great new era promised in the Torah, will mankind sincerely or respectfully wish to "meet with Israel.")

Satan's soon-coming world peace plan via the Sanhedrin / B'nai Noach / False Prophet / Antichrist

The prophets of old, however, foresaw a time when all humanity would realize the error of their ancestors. Upon realizing their error, they would go to the one remaining source of Torah – the Jewish people. As it says, "Nations shall come to you from the ends of the earth and say, 'Surely, our fathers have inherited lies and vain things in which there is no benefit.'" (Jeremiah 16:19)

When the peoples of the world finally return to the Torah, God will bring them together in a state of peace and love, as the prophet says, "...he shall turn the heart of the fathers to the children, and the heart of the children to their fathers." (Malakhi 3:24) And, "I will make the people pure of speech that they all call upon the name of God and serve Him with one purpose." (Zephaniah 3:9)

Working together in unity, we will then lead the world into a state of perfection, in which "...there will be neither famine nor war, envy or competition, for good will flow in abundance and all delights will be [as common] as dust. [In this era,] the occupation of the entire world will be solely to know God..... As [Isaiah 11:9] states: 'The world will be filled with the knowledge of God, as the waters cover the sea.'" (Rambam, Mishneh Torah, Hilkhoth Melakhim 12:5)

"These experiences ... leave us with a choice, a choice to use our experiences to enlighten and empower and change people's lives, and that is a choice I am getting behind."

The "Desperate Housewives" star was seated next former Soviet President Mikhail Gorbachev, who will present the 2006 Women's World Awards on October 14 in New York. The event recognizes extraordinary women and their achievements in a variety of fields.

Does Israel Conduct Covert Action in America? - by Michael Scheuer

Astoundingly well done, Israel, good for you! The impact of your covert political action activities in America are all that you could have hoped for: Truth is negated, dissent is suppressed, and opponents are intimidated and defamed, and all this is done by prominent U.S. citizens. The only competitor you have is the Saudi lobby, an organization just as damaging as yours to genuine U.S. national interests, a reality you and we would see if the bloodied but hopefully unbowed Mearsheimer-Walt team decides to analyze the corrupt and corrupting Saudi lobby.

Finally, I forgot to mention at the start that covert political action campaigns are almost always directed by one nation against another nation that it considers an enemy or whose leaders it judges to be gullible, venal, none too bright, unreliable, or all four. That surely gives one pause for thought, but it truly is the way the world works.

Surveys of migrating workers show that the vast majority would prefer to work in their home countries as long as the conditions are right, which generally means a living wage and better working conditions.

U.S. Has “Illusion of Omnipotence” - Gorbachev - NEWS - MOSNEWS.COM

There has been backsliding on nuclear treaties he signed with Presidents Reagan and George H. W. Bush in the 1980s and 90s, he said. “We agreed neither country would use nuclear weapons in a first strike. We signed a statement that said a nuclear war could not be won and should never be fought,” he said.

Current U.S. nuclear strategy discusses the possiblity of using nuclear weapons in a first strike, he said, so Russia has inserted similar language in its nuclear plans.

It's Time to Think Big and Take Power in Israel!

Israel needs a strongly Pro-Jewish government. Prof. Eidelberg's Jewish Constitutional Democracy Movement isn't a bad start as I said earlier. Better yet, how about exploring a Malchut/Kingdom. While waiting for the "Son of David" to arrive, in the meantime, the Torah empowers the Jewish People to establish a temporary government of it's choosing. The Maccabees had a Kingdom. Monarchy provides a type of stability that democracy doesn't.

It's time to tell the Jewish People the truth, the Arabs in Israel, the so-called "Palestinians," are Amalek trying to replace us in our homeland. This is total war; there will be only one winner, the Jewish People.

The legal system of Israel should be brought in line with the values of the Torah. A Sanhedrin, a working Jewish Supreme Court according to Torah Law, is beginning to come into existence through the efforts of many rabbis and lay leaders.

A society based on Torah Law will both free up the economy in key ways and establish healthy limits to economic activity, stressing other values beyond consumer consumption. It will encourage Chesed (acts of kindness) and Tzedek (righteousness and justice) through the social sector, so as not to build prosperity on the backs of the poor and the weak. A just and prosperous society is our goal. The final stage of ingathering the exiles will be accomplished, bringing historical justice to the Jewish People.

Certainly, we need to clean off the Temple Mount those insults to our religion, the so-called dome and mosque. Jewish Spiritual Rebirth demands complete control of our holiest places in the Land of Israel. Let's think really big. It's time to build the Third Temple on Har HaBayit (the Temple Mount).

"Where there is no vision, the nation becomes discontent; but when the Torah [vision] is implemented, they will rejoice!" (Proverbs 29:18).
