Sighted Moon News Letter 5843-053
15th Day of the twelfth Month 5843 years after the creation of Adam
February 23, 2008
Shabbat Shalom Family,
We have now covered many different points on the King of the North and the King of the south. Last week we went down a rabbit trail and I did not get to the point that I am going to go strait to today.
This News Letter has been a hard one to write. I have had to wrestle with my own preconceived teachings, and read the scriptures over and over to see if I was seeing what I thought I was seeing. Having now explained so much history, it is all making sense to me. I hope it does to you as well.
Lets begin in Daniel 11:37 where we first began in News Letter 5843-047 seven weeks ago. But keep in mind what Paul has said in 1 Corinthians 13:12 For now we see through a glass darkly,
So although I think I have it right, we are in fact talking about prophecy. It could change as more is revealed in the future. So always be watching.
Daniel 11:37 He shall regard neither the God of his fathers nor the desire of women, nor regard any god; for he shall exalt himself above them all.
[ Here as in the past the rulers of the Empire will consider themselves Emperors and will have themselves worshiped as gods]
38 But in their place he shall honor a god of fortresses;
[We have now shown this god of fortresses as Ishtar, the Queen of Heaven, now called the Blessed Virgin Mary of the Catholic faith]
and a god which his fathers did not know he shall honor with gold and silver, with precious stones and pleasant things.
[ This is the most peculiar verse. A god they did not know. They have known the god of fortresses since Nimrod. We have seen that. Who is this god that their fathers never knew? Lets read the next verse and then I will begin to answer this.]
39 Thus he shall act against the strongest fortresses with a foreign god, which he shall acknowledge, and advance its glory; and he shall cause them to rule over many, and divide the land for gain.
Once again we are told of this foreign god. This king of this 4th empire which has now come back to life seven times. He is going to advance the glorification of this foreign god.
Right now for me a number of things are happening. As I write this News Letter back in January of 08 I have for the first time heard some saying that the Beast is Islam. Nazarene Israel attempted to say as much but could not prove it. Abrahamic faith has a book out claiming the beast is Islam. I have not read it, to find out how he can claim such a thing.
After all that we have now covered, is Islam the beast? You should be able to say no with confidence. We have shown you that the beast of Revelation is the same as Daniel and is in fact the King of the North.
Butâ€¦..before you go running to your neighbors with this news read the rest of this News Letter. There are a few more twist and turns.
In the book I have strongly suggested you all buy called the Great German Nation, Mr. White provides a number of documents showing how Hitler was planning to destroy the Catholic church, as he felt it was becoming a problem to his empire.
When I read that in his book I found that strange as that is what it says in Revelation 17:16 And the ten horns which you saw on the beast, these will hate the harlot, make her desolate and naked, eat her flesh and burn her with fire. 17 For God has put it into their hearts to fulfill His purpose, to be of one mind, and to give their kingdom to the beast, until the words of God are fulfilled. 18 And the woman whom you saw is that great city which reigns over the kings of the earth.”
Verse 12 tells us who the ten horns are 12 The ten horns which you saw are ten kings who have received no kingdom as yet, but they receive authority for one hour as kings with the beast.
It is the Beast who will give these Kings their authority with him. These kings do not have authority until this last Emperor is on his throne. Who is he? In verse 11 And the beast that was, and is not, is himself also the eighth, and is of the seven, and is going to perdition.
When we see the seventh Empire take hold of Europe. This is the King of the North as we have already explained in detail. When we see this empire set up, know that an eighth one is about to form. When that eighth one forms we are told that those ten kings who come after a while, will destroy the Whore who was the religious organization that controlled much of the world.
In Isaiah 13 we are told of a prophesy against Babylon. We have already seen that this Babylon is a religious system, and not a place. In verse 6 and 9 we are told that it is when the day of the Lord is at hand. Verse 10 is the same wording as Joel, when the lights in the sky will be darkened. Verse14 through 22 of Isaiah 13 Yahweh calls the Medes to rise up and go against them and kill man woman and child. The devastation will be so bad that it will never be inhabited again. Is this a nuclear attack. Will Iran have the bomb? I think so.
Far too many confuse the City of Babylon with the religion and people of Babylon. Those Chaldean people who upheld the Chaldean Mystery religion are the same ones today who are most Chaldean. They are the most Catholic. The Italians. And just as the first Chaldean Babylon was destroyed by the Medes and Persians, so will the this one be destroyed by Iran.
In the same way as Assyria invaded and captured Israel, the northern ten tribes, so will Germany invade the modern Israel, England and the USA. The same as Babylon ( Chaldeans) invaded Judah and took it so will Rome invade the state of Israel. And just as Babylon was destroyed by the Medes so it will happen again.
As bible students we all know why this happens. But in the real world of Politics and intrigue, why would this event take place. It will be a huge event as Revelation 18 goes on to describe how sad the world will be. Why?
We have read in previous News letters how the German people could not be trusted to keep their word. If the agreement was beneficial to them they kept it, until it was no longer beneficial. Mr. White explains how Germany under the Franks took control of the empire and only used the church to help it do so. Other wise they had no use for the Church.
Mr. White says â€˜The Franks were the first barbaric tribe to embrace Catholicism, but it was for political gain, not religious. Mostly of Germanic origin, the Franks used the church to support their expansionist policies, while the church relied on Frankish rulers for protection. It was a union based on politics alone. Germany is going to use the church until it is no longer profitable. â€˜
Having said that, I know I will upset many who are reading this in Germany. But read Isaiah 10: 5 “Woe to Assyria, the rod of My anger And the staff in whose hand is My indignation. 6 I will send him against an ungodly nation, And against the people of My wrath I will give him charge, To seize the spoil, to take the prey, And to tread them down like the mire of the streets. 7 Yet he does not mean so, Nor does his heart think so; But it is in his heart to destroy, And cut off not a few nations.
Assyria, we now know who that is today. Germany. They are the rod that Yahweh will use. Remember the rod of Thor and of Chus or Janus. The ungodly nation is non other than Israel. In our last series of News letters we showed you who Israel is today. England, Canada and New Zealand are Ephraim. Australia, and the USA are Manasseh. These are those of Yahwehâ€™s wrath. Again we see the treading down and breaking in pieces as the beast does, as Assyria has always done and as Chush did. This rod is to be broken in the land of Israel. Isaiah 14:25. This is where Assyria is to be destroyed. When they invade the State of Israel.
But notice the last part. Yet he, Assyria, Germany, does not mean so, Nor does his heart think so. Germany is a highly sophisticated society. Highly civilized. They would never think to do such a thing. Yet his past has always done so. It is in his heart to destroy and not just a few, but many, many, many.
Getting back to Daniel 11: 39 Thus he shall act against the strongest fortresses with a foreign god, which he shall acknowledge, and advance its glory; and he shall cause them to rule over many, and divide the land for gain.
This verse only now makes sense, when we know who this King of the North is, Germany. But it has something to do with the whore being destroyed, as the legend of Europa says. And we now know how, by the ten kings. In particular the Medes-Iran. But why this happens, has bothered me for many years.
How many times have I read this verse. Notice what it says in Psalm 83:2-8 Assyria is in league with the Arabs. Psalm 83 contains an intriguing prophecy of many Middle Eastern nations that appears to be as yet unfulfilled and to possibly tie in with end-time events. If so, it foretells a confederation of Arab nations that are determined to eliminate Israel.
“They have taken crafty counsel against Your people, and consulted together against Your sheltered ones. They have said, ‘Come, and let us cut them off from being a nation, that the name of Israel may be remembered no more.’ For they have consulted together with one consent; they form a confederacy against You: The tents of Edom and the Ishmaelites; Moab and the Hagrites; Gebal, Ammon and Amalek; Philistia with the inhabitants of Tyre; Assyria also has joined with them” (verses 3-8).
These biblical names are significant when we understand the areas and peoples to which this prophecy refers. Edom includes the Palestinians and some of the Turks. The Ishmaelites, descendants of Ishmael, are many of the Arab peoples throughout the Middle East and North Africa. [King of the South] Moab is the area of central Jordan. The Hagrites appears to refer to other descendants of Hagar, mother of Ishmael.
Gebal, meaning “mountain” or “boundary,” is commonly equated with the Phoenician city of Byblos, modern Jubayl in Lebanon. Ammon refers to northern Jordan around Amman, the capital (which gets its name from Ammon). Amalek appears to refer to a branch of Edomite Palestinians. Philistia is the area around what is today known as the Gaza Strip. Anciently Tyre was a major city-state in southern Lebanon along the Mediterranean coast. The children of Lot refers to Moab and Ammonâ€”again, regions of modern-day Jordan.
Arab unity has long been elusive, but slowly a common purpose is bringing the mixture of different peoples of the Arab world together. This common purpose is the desire to destroy the nation of Israel and its chief backer, the United States of America, along with the West’s liberal culture, long perceived as a threat to the Muslim way of life. The Great Dragon.
Having said that I must share with you what one reader sent me. In Daniel 2:41-43 we are told of the great image that Nebuchadnezzar saw and in particular we are told how the feet will be mixed with clay and iron and how that clay and iron does not mix. Again this was part of the prophecy I had not really understood. But when you consider all that I have put forward and the conclusions drawn, this mixture is most profound.
We have just read how Germany will become partners with these Arab states. You could mix all the Arab nations told to us and they would all seem similar to us. But when you throw in the blonde hair and pale skins of Germany, they do not seem to mix. As Iron Germany and clay the Arab states do not adhere to each other.
What this one reader shared with was this. The word mix written here in Daniel is the word 6151, and it comes from the word 6148 and it means to intermix and to commingle. The word for this mixture of people is the word ARAB. Do you think Yahweh is giving us a loud hint.
Daniel 7:7 After this I saw in the night visions, and behold, a fourth beast, dreadful and terrible, exceedingly strong. It had huge iron teeth; it was devouring, breaking in pieces, and trampling the residue with its feet. It was different from all the beasts that were before it, and it had ten horns. 8 I was considering the horns, and there was another horn, a little one, coming up among them, before whom three of the first horns were plucked out by the roots. And there, in this horn, were eyes like the eyes of a man, and a mouth speaking pompous words.
Once again we are talking of the fourth Empire. With the ten kings. Three of whom are thrown down. Is this what happens when the King of the North swoops down and attacks Egypt, Ethiopia and Libya? Are these those three kings who fall? Later we see that this little horn exalts himself to the position of an internationally powerful religious leader (verses 24-25), even commanding a false religious system that persecutes the true followers of Yahweh.
A friend shared this verse with me as I worked on this. Ecclesiastes 1: 9 That which has been is what will be, That which is done is what will be done, And there is nothing new under the sun. 10 Is there anything of which it may be said, “See, this is new”? It has already been in ancient times before us. 11 There is no remembrance of former things,
Assyria Germany is going to make an alliance with these Arab countries. It is going to do so in order to defeat Israel, England and the USA. Europe has the largest military defense budget next to the USA, and it has combined forces deployed across more theaters of conflict than any other nation in Peace Keeping modes. It can very easily re-deploy this vast army to other duties. Such as war.
But the Achilles heal of Europe is oil. The North sea is drying up. Most other shipments come through Russia. Which Europe found out just a few year ago that this route was very risky because Mr. Putin turned off the pipeline one day in the middle of a freezing winter.
In order to have a mobile army you need to have fuel for the plains tanks, trucks and ships. Where is that oil? The Middle East. But who is currently controlling things in the middle East? The USA.
Germany has to take control of these oil fields for its own army. Prophecy is telling me that in order to do that, the soon to come Empire of Europe is going to come to power and see this weakness. In desperate moves it will destroy the catholic church and take on the god that it fathers never knew. Allah. An Alliance of the King of the North and the King of the South. The King of the South may be made up of Ten Kingdoms. As we read in Daniel 7:7 three will be put down. Are those three Egypt Libya and Ethiopia? We must watch.
In Isaiah 13:14-20 Yahweh is telling me that the Medes will destroy Babylon. That is the Medes will destroy the Catholic headquarters, sparing none. The word bows representing a missile attack.
Daniel 11:42 implies that Egypt will be allied with the king of the south. This prophecy indicates that there would be a far-reaching change in Egyptian politics!
Then in verse 39 of Daniel 11 we are told that he will act against the strongest of strongholds and divide the land for gain. To me this is saying the USA is going to be divided up.
Ecclesiastes 1:9 Nothing new
Nimrod ruled over all. In the end The king of the north shall rule over all again. Do you remember what we said in the very first paragraph of this series.
Now, this Ninus, or “Son,” borne in the arms of the Babylonian Madonna, is so described as very clearly to identify him with Nimrod. “Ninus, king of the Assyrians,” * says Trogus Pompeius, epitomised by Justin, “first of all changed the contented moderation of the ancient manners, incited by a new passion, the desire of conquest. He was the first who carried on war against his neighbors, and he conquered all nations from Assyria to Libya, as they were yet unacquainted with the arts of war.”
From Assyria- Germany to Libya. That is both the King of the North and the South all under the god of Allah.
Remember also that the Chatti were both black and white. One group went with Assyria, the other ended up in the Cushite area of Pakistan. Punjab.
Now when we read in Leviticus 26 that Yahweh is going to send Terror on us for not keeping the laws and the Land rest, we now know who it is. Terror, utter terror as only the Chatti and Assyrian and German and Islamist know how to give.
Yahweh has told us in Lev 23 His Holy Days. In Lev. 25 we are told of the Sabbath years and Jubilee years. We are then told in chapter 26 what our punishment is if we disobey. Verse 16 Terror will come to us. In verse 19 Droughts, 21 pestilence which is about to start. And then in verse 23 of Chapter 26 we are told that Yahweh will bring a sword against us. Verse 25 says we will be delivered into the hand of our enemies. We shall become prisoners. This is to start in 2017 and if we still do not repent then by 2024 we will be sold into slavery starved and become cannibalistic due to extreme hunger and we will be killed for the sport of it Verse 33.
Is Islam the beast, no, well sort of. Is Germany or Europe the beast, sort of. They both are and in the end they both join together for world domination led by Germany. Just as Germany used the Catholic religion to give it power over Europe, it will do so again, until that deal is of no more use to it. Germany will then sell out the Catholic faith, in a deal with the Muslim nations. The Medes will destroy Rome, which is never to be inhabited again. Isaiah 13:20. This new alliance with the Muslims gives Germany access to the oil it so desperately needs, and control over those Muslim nations, of Africa and parts of Asia.
Remember this sentence in News Letter 5843-050 Many scholars knew the Roman Empire was prophesied to be the fourth and final world empire. But beyond that, they tragically misinterpreted Bible prophecies. That is what led to so much violence and bloodshed during the Middle Ages.
People falsely assumed that the Antichrist would emerge on the world scene once the Roman Empire was extinguished. What the Bible actually says is that after the fourth empire passes from the scene, Godâ€™s Kingdom would be set up (Daniel 2:44).
This also was misinterpreted because people during the Middle Ages assumed the Holy Roman Empire was Godâ€™s Kingdom on Earth! That elevated their laws and aspirations for world rule above Godâ€™s. Thus, the groundwork for the tragedy of the Middle Ages was laid, not upon a holy empire, but upon Satan-inspired, gross misinterpretations of Godâ€™s Word.
Because so many are again misinterpreting the scriptures of Daniel, when the USA is attacked and defeated by Europe, they will believe that Europe is the Kingdom of Yahweh. The Anti Christ will seem to them to be The Messiah. And will bring them to Israel and will save Israel. Many will believe this because they believe that the USA is Babylon. They have it wrong.
Another friend sent these two articles to me. You need to look at them. This was and is new to me. Most profound, having now gone through this series.
One other thing. If you have not yet seen the movie Obsession Radical Islamâ€™s War against the west, you need to do so ASAP. As you watch it keep in mind all that I have shared here with you. Watch the Muslim faith as it starts in Egypt with the brother hood. Marching the goose step and giving one armed salutes is all to reminiscent of Nazi Germany. You need to watch this video.
And to many of you who are still playing religion. Who think this is something far off. This is real. It is as real as blood and guts. It is your wife or you daughter being used as a sex slave. It is you watching your sons or husband being beheaded, and those doing it laughing. It is watching your children starving and fighting over a crumb. It is going to take years for this to pass. Will you survive? How will you escape? Those foolish ones of you who think you are just going to leave the USA and go to Israel and join the two sticks together are very delusional. Study your bible. Read it as a real book and not some religious theology you have been taught from men.
This thing is real and it is coming. You now have just over 8 years before the wars begin. IF the message of the Jubilee is correct. If pestilenceâ€™s begin in 2010, know for sure 2017 is correct and war is imminent. If you have not read the main reason I have this web site up then go and read the Article Times Up! No More Excuses! The Land Rest and the Jubilee years are shadow pictures of Future events the same as the Holy Days are. Go to this link https://sightedmoon-archives.com/sightedmoon_2015/?page_id=53
In an Article by Yair Davidy
from the book of Hosea he writes;
The following article is based on an excerpt first published in “Ephraim” by Yair Davidy (as I then spelled my name in English) in 1995.<>
The Muslim Madness
and Predicted Terror Attacks Against Ephraim
Did the Prophet Hosea predict a Muslim Terrorist attack against Britain or America who in Scripture are referred to as “Ephraim”?
Hosea chapter 9 in Hebrew explicitly mentions Machmad (Mohammed) as “the mad prophet”, an evil spiritual leader. Hosea speaks of terrorists assembling in Egypt and bringing disaster on Ephraim. Brit-Am has shown through Biblical Studies and research in secular fields such as history, linguistics, mythology, cultural patterns, and numerous other disciplines (in fact anywhere where any relevant evidence may be available) how determinative elements amongst peoples of Western Europe are descended from the Lost Ten Tribes of Israel. We have also shown how the peoples of the British Isles and their overseas offshoots descend especially from the Tribes of Joseph, Ephraim and Manasseh. Though Ephraim as a Tribe may be more dominant in Britain it is also present in North America. Apart from this, it is the way of Scripture to refer to the Lost Ten Tribes in general, or at least to the leading Israelite factor amongst them, as “Ephraim”.
Hosea 9:7 tells us, “The days of visitation have arrived, the days of payment have come, Israel shall know, the prophet is evil, the spiritual leader is mad because of your transgression there is great hatred.”
The Muslims are not rational. Anyone in the west who acted as Islam seems to require its adherents to think and act would not be considered normal.
On the other hand similar things could be said about the adherents of many religions in different contexts so it is perhaps best to concentrate upon our own houses rather than probe how others run theirs.
Nevertheless the relevant verses concerning Ephraim suffering at the hands of Muslim terrorists are there in the Book of Hosea and they do have a specific intention.
As we recalled in our work “Ephraim” (1995) chapter two:
“DO NOT BE HAPPY ISRAEL, DO NOT REJOICE LIKE (OTHER) PEOPLES, FOR YOU HAVE SINNED (AND GONE) AWAY FROM YOUR GOD…(Hosea 9;1).
Note that “Israel” is told not to be “happy” because they have departed from the truth. By “Israel” in this case Ephraim or the Ten Tribes in their place of exile is intended. Britain when linked in Jewish and Arab tradition with the Ten Tribes was known as “The Happy Isles”.
The ancestor of the British in Celtic British tradition had a name, “Aed”, connoting “happy” and linked to the Patriarch “Isaac”. This name in Arabic lore represented the exiled people of northern Israel.
See, “Aed and Israel. The lost Tribes in Celtic and Arabic Lore” [http://www.britam.org/aed.html ]
“THEY WILL NOT DWELL IN THE LAND OF THE LORD, EPHRAIM SHALL RETURN TO MITSRAYIM (EGYPT) AND EAT UNSANCTIFIED BROTH IN ASSYRIA (9:3).
FOR, LO, THEY ARE GONE BECAUSE OF DESTRUCTION: EGYPT SHALL GATHER THEM UP, MEMPHIS SHALL BURY THEM: THE PLEASANT PLACES [Hebrew “Machmad” i.e. Mohammed] FOR THEIR SILVER, NETTLES SHALL POSSESS THEM: THORNS SHALL BE IN THEIR TABERNACLES [Hosea 9:6].
“THE DAYS OF VISITATION HAVE ARRIVED, THE DAYS OF PAYMENT HAVE COME, ISRAEL SHALL KNOW, THE PROPHET IS EVIL, MADl [Hebrew: “Meshuga”] A MAN OF SPIRIT BECAUSE OF YOUR TRANSGRESSION AND OF GREAT HATRED (Hosea 9:7):
” EPHRAIM LOOKED OUT WITH THE GOD OF THE PROPHET, A HIDDEN SNARE ON ALL HIS PATHS, HATRED IN THE HOUSE OF HIS GOD (Hosea 9:8).
Basing ourselves mainly on the Brit-Am Comentary to Hosea (given above) we may paraphrase the above verses as saying:
Ephraim will be punished for their sins and corruption and departure from the God of Israel.
[Abandoning the settlement of Judah in the State of Israel is another aspect of abandoning the God of Israel.]
Terrorists will commit acts of terrible destruction against Ephraim. They will be inspired by a spiritual leader, a madman, a Mahomad who desires their wealth. Wild beasts of men will feast on their ruins.
As mentioned above, “The mad prophet” was indicated by Maimonides (1135-1204), in his “Letter to Yeman ” [http://britam.org/hosea9.html#Excerpt ] ) to be a reference to Mohamed. The name of Mohammed (in Hebrew and Arabic: ” Machmad”) does appear in the passage. The desert sun, sparse diet, and seclusion (as well as the possible use of hashish and various weeds smoked by some of the Arabs) are liable to play tricks on highly strung spiritually inclined individuals. If the people concerned also suffer from epilepsy (as Mohammed did) and delusions of grandeur so is the propensity for error compounded.
The religion of Islam in effect is derived from Arabic culture. Ishmael the son of Abraham and Hagar his Egyptian maidservant was the father of leading elements amongst the Arabs. Prior to the birth of Ishmael his mother was told:
[GENESIS 16:11] AND THE ANGEL OF THE LORD SAID UNTO HER, BEHOLD, THOU ART WITH CHILD AND SHALT BEAR A SON, AND SHALT CALL HIS NAME ISHMAEL; BECAUSE THE LORD HATH HEARD THY AFFLICTION.
[GENESIS 16:12] AND HE WILL BE A WILD MAN; HIS HAND WILL BE AGAINST EVERY MAN, AND EVERY MAN’S HAND AGAINST HIM; AND HE SHALL DWELL IN THE PRESENCE OF ALL HIS BRETHREN.
Onkelos (1st century CE) translated the expression, “HIS HAND WILL BE AGAINST EVERY MAN AND EVERY MAN’S HAND AGAINST HIM” as meaning that he will need everyone and everyone will need him. This is the case today. Everyone needs Arab oil and the Arabs need everyone else to develop this oil and market it. They also are often violently disposed towards everyone else and other people dislike them.
Historically, the Arabian Jews whom Mohammed massacred may have been an offshoot from the Lost Ten Tribes, i.e. “Ephraim”. Their settlements in Arabia appear to date from shortly after the Assyrian Exile.
Regarding the future the message of Hosea is a warning that the forces of Islam are a danger. Association with them threatens disaster upon Ephraim which mainly means Great Britain. Ephraim also includes important elements in North America, South Africa, and Australia. A portion of Ephraim is also to be found amongst the Jews The name Ephraim in Scripture can stand too for the leading power amongst the Ten Tribes or all of the Ten Tribes in general. The said verses may well contain a hint that Ephraim will attempt some type of rapport with “the god of the prophet” and this will not turn out well.
There is only one other group I know of who seems to be on this trail of the beast. They also believe they are the only true church and have turned a man into something more than a man. For this reason I am reluctant to use them. But because they are actively following this beast and in real time Geopolitics I suggest you get their free magazine.
For most of you, you will not survive the events that will soon come upon us. It is interesting, those things I have shown you over the past few weeks, but they are not that important to most of you.
We are now going to cover the curses of Leviticus 26. It is these curses that are going to kill most of you and you will never know if those things about the kings of the north and the south are true. Once we have covered these five curses, then I will tell you what you can do to be saved.
Here is what the PCOG wrote in the January issue. http://www.thetrumpet.com/print.php?q=44126.96.36.199
EU Ignores Public, Expands Powers
From the January 2008 Trumpet Print Edition A European Union summit brought out a number of critics complaining about this institution’s threat to democracy. Is it too little, too late? By Ron Fraser
European leaders met in Lisbon, Portugal, on a balmy October day to thrash out differences over the eu Reform Treaty. Outside, 200,000 citizens demonstrated. They were protesting against the idea of eu citizens being denied any say in the process of the Unionâ€™s agreeing to a revision of the much-touted European Constitution in its new guise as the eu Reform Treaty.
Yet again, the eu is showing a determination to impose its will and to ride roughshod over public opinion.
Though the Lisbon demonstration was the largest in the Portuguese capital for 20 years, it was ignored by the press. You simply did not hear about it.
Thatâ€™s a startling demonstration of the power that this European monolith, the eu, already possesses to control media and thus public opinion. As Thomas Rupp, the coordinator of the European Referendum Campaign, observed of the eu leaders gathered in Lisbon, “They boasted that they have managed to get over an institutional crisis, but in fact they just increased the euâ€™s democratic crisis by completely avoiding the citizens. And obviously you should not count too much on the mainstream media to do anything about it” (eu Observer, Oct. 23, 2007).
This emerging economic and political titan has a record of railroading its treaties and regulations through the institutions of its own creationâ€”institutions designed to impose the eu will over and above the sovereign rights of its member nation states. The list of regulations it now enforces on its 27 member nations, in many cases trumping those nationsâ€™ own sovereign laws, currently runs to 90,000 pages!
In the past, Ireland, France and the Netherlands have all, in principle, rejected the eu constitution via public referenda. The British government has been scared out of its wits by the prospect of testing the eu constitution via the same democratic method, knowing full well that polls indicate upward of 70 percent of the British people do not support it.
The term “democracy,” to the bureaucrats of Brussels, simply has the same meaning as it has in Moscow or Beijing. The European Union is the new tyrant of the Continent.
Thankfully, though it be lateâ€”far too late, if we were only to know the truthâ€”voices both sides of the Atlantic are increasingly crying out in alarm over what is building in Europe.
Until recently, very few of the voices that have been sounding an alarm at the danger emerging via the undemocratic processes of the eu have been given equal airtime with the Europhiles. We have quoted a number of the most strident of those voices over the years. Most have been Britishâ€”such keen observers as British political economist Rodney Atkinson, that great British patriot Norris McWhirter, authors Adrian Hilton, John Laughland, Bernard Connolly et al. Yet on the other side of the Atlantic, those analysts who clearly see what is happening in Europe today for what it is have been few and far between.
Brian Connell, who authored A Watcher on the Rhine back in 1957, attempted to warn Americans of the dangers they would face by endorsing the concept of a united Europe. More recently, the Washington Postâ€™s former London bureau chief T.R. Reid has become quite vocal in trying to educate Americans as to the new superpower that threatens U.S. dominance. His most comprehensive effort, the book The United States of Europe, was published in 2004.
But suddenly, a rash of commentary is coming from sources on both sides of the Atlantic decrying the manner in which this imperial European Union is forcing its will upon the European populace and even beyond. In the business world, the cowering of corporate giant Microsoft before the high and mighty European regulator has set alarm bells ringing among corporate moguls, as the prospect of the eu becoming the chief regulator of global business starts to sink in.
The eu Reform Treaty summit in October ran true to form. As the Economist mused, “Eurocrats like to talk about building Europe â€˜step by step.â€™ Critics accuse Brussels of slicing away national sovereignty, treaty by treaty” (Oct. 25, 2007).
What is the real impact of this latest in the series of treaties that has governed the evolution of this European monolith to this point? The Reform Treaty, to be signed on December 13 in Lisbon, is but the clone of the rejected European Constitution, under a different name, with some revolutionary clauses of imperialistic nature strongly endorsed.
The Reform Treaty creates the new post of president of the European Council, who will host four or more EU summits per year. In addition, the treaty allows for the appointment of an eu foreign minister to represent the Union in its international relations with the rest of the global community and to represent the eu within international entities such as the United Nations.
The treaty also allows for nations desiring greater defense cooperation to proceed to pursue just that. Added to these changes is a shrinkage of the upper layer of political leaders within the European Commission, currently headed by JosÃ© Manuel Barroso.
What does all this mean to citizens of eu member states?
It means that, without being consulted at all, they will become part of an imperial Europe. Their most powerful representation on the international scene will not be from the foreign ministries and diplomatic corps of their national governments, but through a separate eu foreign office, backed by a separate eu corps of diplomats, who may counter any foreign-policy initiatives that any eu member nation may wish to promulgate individually. This reflects a clear policy of imperialism crafted by eu technocrats.
Europeâ€™s past as an imperial power is one of the great blots on the history of man. It is one of bloodletting on a grand scale, consummating in the 20th century in the two most terrible wars of all. How is it then that the world just stands by and lets the prospect of more such horror to evolve before its eyes with barely a whimper of concern?
Last October, the European Council on Foreign Relations divulged results of a survey that ought to alarm every keen watcher of European developments. Commenting on the results of that survey, eu Observer noted, “Citizens worldwide prefer â€˜soft powerâ€™ in international affairs rather than military might, and the eu appears to be the political actor whose role is most respected, a new survey suggests.
“In the poll, released by new think tank, the European Council on Foreign Relations, more than one third of the respondents (35 percent) said they see an increased eu power as a central element needed to develop a better world” (Oct. 25, 2007).
Yet there is a paradox here, as the think tankâ€™s executive director, Mark Leonard, and board member Ivan Krastev commented: “It is striking that a continent with a military budget second only to the United States, and the biggest number of peace-keeping forces serving in the world, seems to be perceived as a non-military power” (ibid.).
Back when Europe lay largely in ashes at the close of World War ii, there was one lone voice that cried out in warning at the Allied nationsâ€™ efforts to promote the construction of a unified Europe. Herbert W. Armstrong declared that imperial Europe would arise out of the ashes to once again stride across the world as a global superpower. He pointed to the dangers that imperial power would pose to the English-speaking peoples in particular.
Now the chickens are coming home to roost, and the hens are clucking in startled fashion.
As Herbert W. Armstrong declared, this time the leading power in Europe, Germany, has learned the lesson that a European empire is best not created by war. It is best created, like the British Empire of the past, by trade. Once that economic empire is consolidated into a political entity, overlaid culturally by a collective spiritual ideologyâ€”a state religionâ€”then and only then should a policy of military imperialism be imposed.
Sixty years of documented history attest to the prescience of Herbert W. Armstrongâ€™s observations.
Led by Germany, in tandem with France and influenced by Rome, this European conglomerate has grown from a Common Market, via economic imperialism, into a political European Union about to elect its own president and appoint its own foreign service. Economic imperialism has morphed into political imperialism.
How will the economic and political interests of this new “United States of Europe” be secured and defended? It has the capacity to support a combined military force with a collective defense budget second only to that other United States, the United States of America! And its combined forces are deployed across more theaters of conflict, in “peace-keeping” mode, than any other international entity! Given some attention to organizationâ€”a natural gift of our German friendsâ€”that combined military force is already capable of defending the interests of the eu empire, more particularly so now that France has a president willing to share that nationâ€™s nuclear capability with its German partner. This situation is, in fact, destined to have far graver consequences upon the U.S. and its allies than Iraq and Afghanistan combined are presently having. In fact, it is destined to soon overtake the U.S. and its English-speaking allies in terms of economic impact, political influence and military mightâ€”believe it or not!
Yes, the more astute pundits are now emerging to decry the threats posed by imperialist Europe. But itâ€™s all too late. The barn door has been left open by the victors in the last European-instigated war; the horse has bolted and thereâ€™s no stopping it.
The best we can hope for now isâ€”in factâ€”the greatest of all hopes.
Hope, and pray, for the day to soon come when the final revival of that old Holy Roman Empire will be quashed, never again to raise its bloody fist over mankind. Its global power is about to be replaced by a supreme, universal Power in fulfillment of Isaiahâ€™s great prophecy: “For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace. Of the increase of his government and peace there shall be no end, upon the throne of David, and upon his kingdom, to order it, and to establish it with judgment and with justice from henceforth even for ever. The zeal of the Lord of hosts will perform this” (Isaiah 9:6-7). â€¢

I received this information just this week. When I read it a chill ran down my back. This person is confirming those things I have laid out for you over the past month. It is very chilling to know this especially since you now know that Israel (Judah ) and the USA (Manasseh) are brothers. No wonder the world hates them.
The Classical Commentaries on Daniel chapter two (especially 2:32-45) in the Book of Daniel quoted above in the light of Actual Events Today read like Present-Day Political Commentary on Current Events. This may be seen by comparing the Commentaries in Question and the extracts from Current Affairs Articles below.
We saw above how the statue that Nebuchandezzar dreamt about and whose meaning Daniel interpreted according to the major Commentators (Iben Ezra, Saadia, Malbim) represented an eventual attempted union between Europe and Islam. The articles below say that such a union is in preparation.
No-one really knows how things will turn out. We can gain some indication from Prophecy, keep our eyes open, and follow events.
The Book of Daniel and The Commentaries to Daniel are pertinent to our time and seem to foreshadow what is taking place already today.
The articles below in effect depict a merger already in the process of preparation of Continental Europe with Ishmael (Arabic-Islam). This is to be carried through at the expense of Israel and the USA.

Frontpage Interview’s guest today is Bat Ye’or, the world’s foremost authority on dhimmitude.
Her latest study is Islam and Dhimmitude. Where Civilizations Collide. Her forthcoming book, Eurabia: The Euro-Arab Axis, will be published in January 2005.
Brief Extracts Only:
Bat Ye’or: Eurabia represents a geo-political reality envisaged in 1973 through a system of informal alliances between, on the one hand, the nine countries of the European Community (EC)which, enlarged, became the European Union (EU) in 1992 and on the other hand, the Mediterranean Arab countries. The alliances and agreements were elaborated at the top political level of each EC country with the representative of the European Commission, and their Arab homologues with the Arab League’s delegate. This system was synchronised under the roof of an association called the Euro-Arab Dialogue (EAD) created in July 1974 in Paris. A working body composed of committees and always presided jointly by a European and an Arab delegate planned the agendas, and organized and monitored the application of the decisions.
The field of Euro-Arab collaboration covered every domain: from economy and policy to immigration. In foreign policy, it backed anti-Americanism, anti-Zionism and Israel’s delegitimization; the promotion of the PLO and Arafat; a Euro-Arab associative diplomacy in international forums; and NGO collaboration. In domestic policy, the EAD established a close cooperation between the Arab and European media television, radio, journalists, publishing houses, academia, cultural centers, school textbooks, student and youth associations, tourism. Church interfaith dialogues were determinant in the development of this policy. Eurabia is therefore this strong Euro-Arab network of associations — a comprehensive symbiosis with cooperation and partnership on policy, economy, demography and culture.
Eurabia is the future of Europe. Its driving force, the Parliamentary Association for Euro-Arab Cooperation, was created in Paris in 1974. It now has over six hundred members — from all major European political parties — active in their own national parliaments, as well as in the European parliament. The creation of this body and its policy follow the 23 resolutions of the “Second International Conference in Support of the Arab Peoples”, held in Cairo in January 1969. Its resolution 15 formulates the Euro-Arab policy and its all-embracing development over thirty years in European domestic and foreign policy.
It stated: “The conference decided to form special parliamentary groups, where they did not exist, and to use the parliamentary platform for promoting support of the Arab people and the Palestinian resistance.” In the 1970s, pursuant to the wishes of the Cairo Conference, national groups proclaiming “Solidarity with the Palestinian Resistance and the Arab peoples” appeared throughout Europe. These groups belonged to different political families, Gaullists, extreme left or right, communists, neo-Nazis — but they all shared the same anti-Americanism and anti-Zionism. France has been the key protagonist of this policy, ever since de Gaulle’s press conference on 27 November 1967 when he presented France’s cooperation with the Arab world as “the fundamental basis of our foreign policy”.
FP: Is Europe’s dependence on Arab oil a predominant factor in its pro-Arab policy?
Bat Ye’or: No, I don’t think so. Arab leaders have to sell their oil; their people are very dependent on European economic, health and technological aid. America made this point during the oil embargo in 1973. The oil factor is a pretext to cover up a policy that emerged in France before that crisis. The policy was already conceived in the 1960s. It has strong antecedents in the French 19th century dream of governing an Arab empire and the exploitation of antisemitism to strengthen Arab Muslim-French solidarity against a demonized common enemy. Eurabia is not only a web of various agreements covering every field. It is essentially a political project for a total demographic and cultural symbiosis between Europe and the Arab world, where Israel will eventually dissolve. America would be isolated and challenged by an emerging Euro-Arab continent that is linked to the whole Muslim world and invested with tremendous political and economic power in international affairs. The policies of “multilateralism” and “soft diplomacy” express this deepening symbiosis. The Euro-Arab agreements are merely the tools for the creation of this new “continent.” Eurabia is also based on the vision of Christian-Muslim reconciliation and has been strongly advocated by religious Christian bodies.
France and the rest of Western Europe cannot change their policy anymore. Their future is Eurabia. Period. I don’t see how they can reverse the movement they set in motion thirty years ago. Nor do Eurabians want to modify this policy. It is a project that was conceived, planned and pursued consistently through immigration policy, propaganda, church support, economic associations and aid, cultural, media and academic collaboration. Generations grew up within this political framework; they were educated and conditioned to support it and go along with it. This is the source of the strong anti-American feeling in Europe and of the paranoiac obsession with Israel, two elements that form the cornerstone of Eurabia. ..Faced with the oil crisis, the nine EC countries — under French and German leadership — unified their views regarding the Middle East conflict and this generated the Euro-Arab Dialogue’s overall development.
Eurabian notables, whether Chirac, de Villepin, Solana, Prodi, or others, have continuously stressed the centrality of the Palestinian cause for world peace, as if more European vilification of Israel would change anything in the global jihad waged in the US, in Asia, and from Africa to Chechnya the latest horrendous tragedy in Ossetia is but one example. In such a view, Israel’s very existence, not this genocidal jihadist drive, is a threat to peace. The Euro-Arab linkage of Arab/Islamic reforms to Israel’s stand is spurious and only demonstrates, once more, Europe’s subservience to Arab policy. Numerous Arab and Islamic Summits have imposed the centrality of their Palestinian policy on the world and requested that all political problems should be subordinated to it. The EU likewise.
FP: You often refer to a Euro-Arab Palestinian cult. What do you mean by it?
Bat Ye’or: It means precisely this Palestinian centrality that’s promoted in Europe as a key to world peace. However, the Euro-Arab Palestinian cult goes much deeper than a political tool used for a Euro-Arab Partnership policy against America and Israel. It is linked to theological currents of Judeophobia and a replacement theology based on the Palestinization of the Bible and the rejection of its Jewish roots in order to delegitimize Israel’s history and rights on its land. The Euro-Arab Palestinian cult symbolized the redemption of Christianity and Islam and their reconciliation on the ashes of Israel, the work of Satan — a belief propagated by the media’s continuous demonization of Israel, and Palestinian victimization. This cult brings together neo-Nazis, Judeophobes, anti-Americans, communists and jihadists. It is a revival of Nazi anti-Jewish and anti-Christian trends, particularly in its hatred of Christian Bible believers and America, the country that was determinant in the defeat of Nazism and Communism. In the 1930-40s, the Nazis had strong links with Palestinians, and those sympathies and alliances continued throughout the years after World War II, thriving in the Euro-Arab Palestinian cult that submerged Western Europe under the umbrella of the gigantic Euro-Arab Dialogue apparatus.
FP: But what does the public in Europe think about their Eurabian future? Are they aware of it? Do they go along with it?
Bat Ye’or: The public ignores this strategy, its details and functioning, but there is a strong awareness, anxiety and discontent over the current situation and particularly the antisemitic trends. This Eurabian policy, expressed in obscure wording, is conducted at the top political level and coordinated over the whole EU, spreading an anti-American and antisemitic Euro-Arab sub-culture in every social, media and cultural sector. Oriana Fallaci has given voice to this general opposition. But there are also many others. They are boycotted, sometimes fired from their jobs, victims of a type of totalitarian “correctness” imposed mainly by the academic, media and political sectors.
France’s situation illustrates, in fact, what threatens the whole of Europe through its demographic and political integration within the Arab-Muslim world, as promoted now by the Anna Lindh Foundation. France with Belgium, Germany and perhaps Spain is ahead of the rest of Europe. Britain, Italy and to some extent the East European countries are less marked by the subservience syndrome of dhimmitude which consists in submission and compliance to Muslim policy or face jihad and death. Dhimmitude is linked to the jihad ideology and sharia rules pertaining to infidels and represents the complex historical process of Islamization of the Judeo-Christian, Buddhist, Hindu civilizations across three continents.
America has the choice of forgoing its liberty and adopting the European line of dhimmitude and supplication, or maintaining its resolve to fight the war against terrorism for freedom and for universal human rights values.
Eurabia: A Future Union of Ishmaelite Arabs and Europe?
Eurabia – Europe’s Future?
A briefing by Bat Ye’or
February 7, 2005
Bat Ye’or, a historian, has published groundbreaking works on minorities and “dhimmitude” (their inferior status) under Islam, including Islam and Dhimmitude: Where Civilizations Collide (2002). Her latest book, Eurabia: The Euro-Arab Axis (Fairleigh Dickinson University Press, 2005), argues that European governments, especially the French, have developed foreign policies aimed at winning the favor of Middle Eastern regimes and appeasing the growing militant Islamic minorities in their midst. Bat Ye’or addressed the Middle East Forum in New York on February 7, 2005.
Europe is undergoing two profound changes. The first is the weakening of Christianity. The second is demographic decline. Presently, across Europe, there are only two-thirds the number of children born necessary to sustain the population. The consequent drop in population has mostly been made good by immigration of Muslims. The fast-growing Muslim population is generally not integrated into the host societies nor politically acculturated to its norms. To the contrary, radical Islamic movements are gaining in strength among these gr opulations. In addition, European governments, especially the French, have developed foreign policies aimed at winning the favor of Middle Eastern regimes.
The question arises: is this a temporary aberration or is Europe on the road to losing its historic identity? The latter: Europe is rapidly being transformed into “Eurabia,” a cultural and political appendage of the Arab/Muslim world that is fundamentally anti-Christian, anti-Semitic, anti-Western and anti-American.
Unfortunately, most Europeans are not aware of the Eurabia merger. The new hatred found in Europe against America and Israel is commonplace and intertwines with many sectors of society, including the media, the culture, and the economy. Europe now facilitates the jihadist values of the Arab world. This is evident in its reluctance to forthrightly denounce Islamic terrorism and its need to indict America and Israel as the causes of conflict, rather than the victims of Islamic aggression. Mass immigration of Arabs across the Mediterranean to Europe, which was part of the friendship agreement, will only strengthen the Eurabian phenomenon. If Europe continues to respond with appeasement to Islamist terror attacks like that in Madrid in 2004, Eurabia will eventually become the complete European reality.
Conclusions for the United States
Americans need to take an assertive role in both combating Eurabia’s dangers and preventing a similar merger from occurring within their own country, for this is a danger. For example, American Middle East studies specialists at universities are already predominantly pro-Arab/Islamic in orientation, dismissive of traditional standards of scholarship and not bashful about politicizing formal instruction.
Americans need to embrace their own genuinely pluralist culture. They should not renounce their identity and Judeo-Christian values to appease the current assertive intolerance emanating from the Arab/Muslim world.
The following two extracts (brought to our attention through the E-Mail Discussion Group of Craig White, “Origin of Nations”) are pertinent to what is happening today and the Book of Daniel. These examples could be repeated many times over:
