Middle East

  1. Is anyone else watching the news? The Islamic beast system is growing at a startling rate, and Obama is doing nothing about it!
  2. Didn't the US just start bombing ISIS?
    Where is the Messiah likes this.
  3. Yes it is alarming. I don't know what else he can do apart from ordering the air strikes that he has.
    Particularly alarming is the persecutions being perpetrated in the name of Islam. If there are any peace loving muslems, they should be marshaling all their (not inconsiderable) resources against this persecution but I suspect we all know and understand the reasons for their passive stance.
    As for the Hamas and Israel, I think it would be good if the Palestinians could form an alliance with Israel and help rid the area of Hamas. I suspect most Palestinians would rather a peaceful coexistence along side Israel that the death and maiming of its people due to a war that is not their own.......or is it?
  4. There would not be an ISIS if the US had not been making a mess of Iraq and Saudi Arabia, Kuqait, and Qatar were not funding it.
  5. I understand your empathy and can resonate with the tragedy, for its a hideous display of despotism.


    Is it "ethical" for a "socialist system" to bomb anyone?

  6. I'm certainly not an apologist for US interaction. But dumping the entirety of the current situation on the doorstep anyone's poor policy seems an over simplification. From what I've heard from people in the middle east, much harm has been done by overemphasizing international political moves over cultural nuance.

    As for the funding from from "Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, and Qatar," is this hearsay, deduction, or research?

  7. what do you mean by islamic beast system?
  8. We cannot get involved anymore than we already have. Here's the issue: 1300 years of fighting between two Islamic faiths. We need to stay out. It didn't start with Bush, it began with Great Britain creating these 'countries' in the 1950's and setting up monarchs. They were feudal tribes before, and now that the artificial borders are coming down they're going back. The leader of ISIS has declared himself the Mahdi - their messiah. If he wins, they will follow him.

    @pancakes the beast of Revelation resembles Islam in amazing ways. Islam is the Ba'al worship of the Old Testament.
    Where is the Messiah and Major say Amen and like this.
  9. Just asking, but are you certain that SA, Kuqait an Qater are funding Isis??? Is that something you know or just think?????

    Seems that I heard just the opposite, in fact Iran is even helping Iraq fight Isis because of their radical position.
  10. Correct. What can the US really do? We have already lost about 1000 lives in the last 12 years there. We can not continue to be the police of the world. At some point, these countries either learn to live together in peace or they disappear.

    Pray for Israel as they seem to be the only ones they stand up and take care of business.

  11. I thought he also signed Law providing $225 million for Israel's Iron Dome?

  12. more specifically..........
    Gen 12:1. Now the LORD said to Abram, "Go from your country and your kindred and your father's house to the land that I will show you.
    Gen 12:2. And I will make of you a great nation, and I will bless you and make your name great, so that you will be a blessing.
    Gen 12:3. I will bless those who bless you, and him who dishonors you I will curse, and in you all the families of the earth shall be blessed."

  13. Yes, I am certain that SA, Qatar , and Kuwait are funding ISIS, it's been all over alternative news sites.
    You'll never hear it from the MSM though.
  14. Yes, I am certain that SA, Qatar , and Kuwait are funding ISIS, it's been all over alternative news sites.
    You'll never hear it from the MSM though.
  15. Personally, it excites me, not for the loss of lives, but for the world wide problem that we see that only the AC can/will resolve, ...soon and very soon we are going to see the King.
  16. looking forward to it.
  17. When you said.......MSM, did you mean MSNBC??? I do not know anyone who watches that network.

    I just saw on FOX Sat. nite how Sudia Aribia, and I ran was funding Iraq.
  18. AMEN!
  19. I wonder what Spuregon, and Gill, Sunday, Henry etc. would say if they were alive today to see the coming together of prophecy????
  20. Yes he did, AFTER it was passed by congress. He then had no choice this time in what he would do.

    Remember, he has done nothing in the past two years to stop ISIS from their attacks. Nothing at all. If he had ordered air strikes when ISIS paraded into Iraq we would not be having this conversation.
