I just received this email, yesterday, from a reputable source, and I would like to share it with you. The original author of this email that was forwarded to me begins:
I got this from one of my employees who has a brother in Israel and believe it 100%. Something is coming.
I don’t know if you follow such things but…
My brother and his family live in Jerusalem – he is a minister – and a former Navy SEAL – his office is close to one of Israel ‘s largest underground military bases.
He called me last night which is very unusual – usually it is email.
He called to tell me that he is sending his family back to the US immediately due to what he is seeing happen within the last week and what he is being told by his military contacts in both the Israel and US military.
He said he is seeing with his own eyes military movements the likes of which he has never seen in his 20+ years in Israel.
What he called a massive redeployment and protective tactics of forces is underway.
Over the last two days he has seen anti-aircraft missile deployments throughout the Jerusalem area including 3 mobile units that he can see from his office windows.
In addition, he has seen very large Israeli armored columns moving fast toward the Sinai where Egypt has now moved in armor.
There are reports of the top military leaders meeting with Israel ‘s Sr. Rabbi which is something that has happened preceding every prior military campaign.
His admonition is to watch carefully and pray for Israel and its people.
He is convinced that barring something extraordinary Israel will attack Iran – with or without the US – and very soon.
It is the belief in Israel that Obama does not stand with Israel but with the Arab countries.
He has told me before that Israel will saber-rattle from time to time, but that this time is very different from what he is seeing and hearing.
He was at the Wailing Wall 2 days ago and there were hundreds of IDF soldiers there. As he was leaving, he passed at least 20 military buses full of soldiers en route to the wall.
He has never seen this before either.
Just thought I would pass this along. My brother is not an alarmist by any means.
When he talks like this it gets my attention for sure, and usually I find he knows more than he shares.
There are reports that Israel is asking Obama to come to Israel immediately but they are being answered with silence.
My opinion is that I see the making of the perfect storm.

NBC and MSNBC are truly despicable. They’ve been on the edge of dishonesty for years, but since Obama has been elected, they have fallen over the edge and have fully embraced the dark side.
They’ve lied about the Tea Party repeatedly.
How about the Romney/WAWA incident from a few months ago. Romney describes his visit to a WAWA convenience store where he touched a couple of keypad buttons, payed the cashier and “there’s your sandwich”. Andrea Mitchell reported purposely as Romney being out of touch with the regular folks and the newsclip was, of course, edited to make it appear that way.
In fact, watching the entire video, which Andrea wouldn’t allow, you’ll plainly see Romney making the comparison between private sector efficiency and innovation and public sector red-tape.
The latest act of reporting malfeasance comes to us again via MSNBC, during Joe Scarborough’s show, “The Morning Joe”. A clip of a Romney/Ryan campaign stop was played which made it appear that the sizable crowd was chanting “Ryan, Ryan, Ryan! The closed captioning added by MSNBC even showed the words Ryan, Ryan, Ryan.
The Morning Joe people then showed an “embarrassed Romney interrupting the chant by saying, ” No, it should be Romney/Ryan, Romney Ryan.” The MSNBC crew was shocked at the juvenile attempt of Mitt to jealously try to inject himself into the chant. Joe and Mika were aghast and their disappointment in Romney was evident from their expressions.
A day later MSNBC’s Martin Bashir simply kept the Mitt-Bashing train rolling. But, why not? After all, Mitt was being overshadowed by his running mate and that apparently didn’t sit well with Romney.
As is more often than not with MSNBC, there’s a problem with this report. They lied again!
You see, if you listen carefully to the video clip, you’ll hear the crowd is not chanting Ryan, Ryan. So what were the chanting?
It seems some attendees to the rally caught wind of the MSNBC report and started calling in to various shows. The eye (and ear) witnesses saw and heard something completely different.
The crowd was actually chanted, “Romney, Romney, Romney” during Ryan’s speech. Evidently Mitt interrupted Ryan to tell the crowd that it should be Romney/Ryan, Romney/Ryan.
On attendee called into the BlazeTv. “The crowd was yelling,” caller Sherry recounts, “the crowd was screaming ‘Romney! Romney!’ and Romney, being the gentleman [he is], we can‘t get in his head because he’s so stinking nice, he stopped us to add ‘Romney-Ryan.’”
“And if you watch the clip again, Ryan throws up his hand like ‘oh, you don’t have to add me to the chant,’” she adds.
Another attendee, Michele Jewett, in an email, wrote, “He (Ryan) introduced Governor Romney and handed the microphone to him. Gov. Romney said, ‘What about that Paul Ryan’ and the crowd immediately started chanting, ‘Romney, Romney‘ not ’Ryan, Ryan’ like the closed captioning on the MSNBC video stated,” she adds.
In fact, what Mitt actually said was, “Let’s try this, Romney/Ryan, Romney/Ryan, I like that better!”
The video in its entirety is so obvious, even the New York Times and Huffington Post had to admit the crowd was chanting Romney, not Ryan.
So what are we to conclude from this? That NBC news has become a campaign arm of the Obama reelection team and will do and say anything to assist?
YEP! Don’t watch them, don’t listen to them, don’t believe a word they say.

A new, 18-minute mini-documentary follows the journey of Irina, a 23-year-old liberal, Jewish New Yorker who voted for Obama in 2008. Yet as her connection to Israel has grown, and she has learned more about the President’s policies across the Middle East and towards Israel in particular, Irina has come to realize that “when the chips are down,” the President may not “have Israel’s back” as he says.
Researchers discover technique to erase newly formed memories
Erasing memories has long been a staple of sci-fi films, but researchers now believe they have made a breakthrough in making the process reality.
The groundbreaking research at Uppsala University in Sweden could lead to radical new treatments for sufferers of anxiety and post traumatic stress disorders.
It shows for the first time that newly formed emotional memories can be erased from the human brain.
This is shown by researchers from Uppsala University in a new study now being published by the academic journal Science.
‘These findings may be a breakthrough in research on memory and fear. Ultimately the new findings may lead to improved treatment methods for the millions of people in the world who suffer from anxiety issues like phobias, post-traumatic stress, and panic attacks,’ says Thomas Ågren, who led the study.
When a person learns something, a lasting long-term memory is created with the aid of a process of consolidation, which is based on the formation of proteins in the brain.
When we remember something, the memory becomes unstable for a while and is then restabilized by another consolidation process.
‘In other words, it can be said that we are not remembering what originally happened, but rather what we remembered the last time we thought about what happened,’ the researchers say.
By disrupting the reconsolidation process, the team found they can change what was remembered.
In this way the picture came to elicit fear in the subjects which meant a fear memory had been formed.
In order to activate this fear memory, the picture was then shown without any accompanying shock.
For one experimental group the reconsolidation process was disrupted with the aid of repeated presentations of the picture.
For a control group, the reconsolidation process was allowed to complete before the subjects were shown the same repeated presentations of the picture.
In subjects that were not allowed to reconsolidate the fear memory, the fear they previously associated with the picture dissipated, and the memory was rendered neutral.
At the same time, using a MR-scanner, the researchers were able to show that the traces of that memory also disappeared from the part of the brain that normally stores fearful memories, the nuclear group of amygdala in the temporal lobe.

In the Army we have an expression for an operation that is so big and unwieldy that it has no purpose other than perpetuating itself: “a self-licking ice cream cone.”
By way of Amanda Carpenter in Senator Jim DeMint’s office we discover that after some half century of hard work, federal housing programs have finally reached that state.
According to the GAO, the federal government runs 160 separate housing programs.
Where are they all?
Well, HUD runs the majority of the programs, 91. The United States Department of Agriculture, which also administers farming aid and the nation’s food stamp program, offers 18 different types of housing assistance as well. The Internal Revenue Service has 14 programs. The Department of Treasury offers 8 programs; the Department of Veterans Affairs 7; the Department of Labor 2; Federal Home Loan Banks 3.
Each of these programs has its own bureaucracy, its own advocates, and its own sub-bureaucracy at the state and local level. While they might actually produce something worthwhile, their main function is keeping the people who administer the programs employed.
But the wonder, from a governance point of view, is not that the federal government has 160 housing programs but that it has any housing programs. Housing is it, a quintessentially local program that needs no federal intervention and where federal rules and money have done incredible damage to our social fabric. Public housing has teamed up with cash payments to indigents to create a wide variety of social pathologies that are now endemic.
This is a major challenge confronting Mr. Romney should he win election. It isn’t enough to make government more efficient. What is needed is to divest the federal government of all but its core functions.
Previously unseen photos showing British and American soldiers liberating the Dutch city of Eindhoven 68 years ago have come to light.
The black and white snapshots depict scenes of jubilation among the local residents who had just endured four years and four months of Nazi occupation.
Many show captured German soldiers being rounded up and searched by the Allied troops while other servicemen are seen having a rest in the grass after taking the city.
Others are of women arm-in-arm with their liberators, children clambering over British army trucks and tanks and soldiers holding babies aloft.
But the scenes of celebration during the early stages of the doomed Operation Market Garden in September 1944 proved shortlived.
Hours after the pictures were taken, the Germans launched a devastating air attack on Eindhoven, destroying buildings and killing scores of civilians.
Market Garden – a daring mission to seize bridges across the Rhine and drive the enemy back towards Germany – ended in bloody failure.
On September 17, 1944 some 34,000 paratroopers were dropped behind enemy lines at various points along the Rhine river in order to take the strategic bridges.
The British 30 Corps tank regiment were to provide back up by driving 40 miles along a single track road from Eindhoven in the south to Arnhem in the north.
But the British were unable to reach their final objective and, with three miles to go, abandoned the operation on September 25, leaving 10,500 British paratroopers stranded at Arnhem.
About 1,500 of them were killed in the Battle of Arnhem and 6,500 taken prisoner.
Another 2,500 soldiers were left on the wrong side of the Rhine but were heroically rescued by boat in a night-time evacuation under the noses of the Germans.
Despite the failure of the operation, Eindhoven remained free from the Nazis.
The unpublished photos were unearthed by British author Ian Gardner as he researched his book ‘Deliver Us From Darkness’.
It is a detailed account of the actions of the companion unit of the ‘Band of Brothers’ US paratroopers, who were immortalized in Steven Spielberg’s TV series of the same name.
Ian, from Aldershot, Hampshire, UK said: ‘Military historians have said Market Garden was a total disaster.
‘But try telling that to the Dutch for whom Allied paratroopers were liberators from German tyranny and occupation.
‘Upon entering Eindhoven, which was the first Dutch city to be liberated, thousands of people spilled onto the streets to embrace the paratroopers, overjoyed after four dark years of Nazi occupation.
‘When XXX Corps entered the city, the roads were so crowded their tanks and vehicles were unable to get through.
‘The celebrations were short-lived as Eindhoven was bombed the following evening by the Luftwaffe, causing hundreds of civilian casualties.
‘The German army began an audacious series of counter-attacks along the road to Arnhem and over the next two weeks the American paratroopers were called upon to defend the transport hubs north of Eindhoven.’
The conquest of North America by the Muslim Brotherhood.

First came the document known as “The Project” unearthed, 2001. Now this.
In July 2007, seven key leaders of an Islamic “charity” known as the Holy Land Foundation for Relief and Development (HLF) went on trial for charges that they had: (a) provided “material support and resources” to a foreign terrorist organization (namely Hamas); (b) engaged in money laundering; and (c) breached the International Emergency Economic Powers Act, which prohibits transactions that threaten American national security. Along with the seven named defendants, the U.S. government released a list of approximately 300 “unindicted conspirators” and “joint venturers.” During the course of the HLF trial, many incriminating documents were entered into evidence. Perhaps the most significant was “An Explanatory Memorandum on the General Strategic Goal for the Group in North America,” by the Muslim Brotherhood operative Mohamed Akram. Federal investigators found Akram’s memo in the home of Ismael Elbarasse, a founder of the Dar Al-Hijrah mosque in Falls Church, Virginia, during a 2004 search. Elbarasse was a member of the Palestine Committee, which the Muslim Brotherhood had created to support Hamas in the United States.
Written and approved by the Shura Council sometime in 1987, but not formally published until May 22, 1991, Akram’s 18-page document listed the Brotherhood’s 29 “organizations of our friends” that shared the common goal of dismantling American institutions and turning the U.S. into a Muslim nation. These “friends” were identified by Akram and the Brotherhood as groups that could help convince Muslims “that their work in America is a kind of grand Jihad in eliminating and destroying the Western civilization from within and ‘sabotaging’ its miserable house by their hands … so that … God’s religion [Islam] is made victorious over all other religions.”
Akram was well aware that in the U.S., it would be extremely difficult to promote Islam by means of terror attacks. Thus the “grand jihad”, or “Civilization Jihad” that he and his Brotherhood comrades envisioned was not a violent one involving bombings and shootings, but rather a stealth (or “soft”) jihad aiming to impose Islamic law (Shariah) over every region of the earth by incremental, non-confrontational means, such as working to “expand the observant Muslim base”; to “unify and direct Muslims’ efforts”; and to “present Islam as a civilization alternative.” At its heart, Akram’s document details a plan to conquer and Islamize the United States – not as an ultimate objective, but merely as a stepping stone toward the larger goal of one day creating “the global Islamic state.”
In line with this objective, Akram and the Brotherhood resolved to “settle” Islam and the Islamic movement within the United States, so that the Muslim religion could be “enabled within the souls, minds and the lives of the people of the country.” Akram explained that this could be accomplished “through the establishment of firmly-rooted organizations on whose bases civilization, structure and testimony are built.”
He urged Muslim leaders to make “a shift from the collision mentality to the absorption mentality,” meaning that they should abandon any tactics involving defiance or confrontation, and seek instead to implant into the larger society a host of seemingly benign Islamic groups and inculcate with ostensibly unobjectionable motives. Once those groups had gained a measure of public acceptance, they would be in a position to more effectively promote societal transformation by the old Communist technique of “boring from within.”
“The heart and the core” of this strategy, said Akram, was contingent upon these groups’ ability to develop “a mastery of the art of ‘coalitions.’” That is, by working synergistically they could complement, augment, and amplify one another’s efforts. Akram added, “The big challenge that is ahead of us is how to turn these seeds or ‘scattered’ elements into comprehensive, stable, ‘settled’ organizations that are connected with our Movement and which fly in our orbit and take orders from our guidance.” The ultimate objective was not only an enlarged Muslim presence, but also implementation of the Brotherhood objectives of transforming pluralistic societies, particularly America, into Islamic states, and sweeping away Western notions of legal equality, freedom of conscience, freedom of religion, and freedom of speech.
Akram and the Brotherhood (Ikhwan) understood that in order to succeed in this endeavor, they needed to appeal to different segments of the American population in different ways; that whereas some people could be influenced by messages delivered from a religious perspective, others would be more responsive to messages delivered by educators, bankers, political figures, or journalists, etc.
Thus, Akram’s blueprint for the advancement of the Islamic movement stressed the need to form a coalition of groups coming from the worlds of education; religious studies; political activism; audio and video production; print media; banking and finance; the physical sciences; the social sciences; professional and business networking; cultural affairs; the publishing and distribution of books; children and teenagers; women’s rights; vocational concerns; and jurisprudence.
By promoting the on such a wide variety of fronts, the Brotherhood and its allies could multiply their influence exponentially . Toward that end, the Akram/Brotherhood “Explanatory Memorandum” named the following 29 groups as the organizations they believed could collaborate effectively to destroy America from within – He stated, “Imagine if they all march according to one plan”:
- Islamic Society of North America (ISNA)
- ISNA Fiqh Committee (now known as the Fiqh Council of North America)
- ISNA Political Awareness Committee
- Muslim Youth of North America
- Muslim Students Association of the U.S. and Canada
- Association of Muslim Scientists and Engineers
- Islamic Medical Association (of North America)
- Islamic Teaching Center
- Malaysian Islamic Study Group
- Foundation for International Development
- North American Islamic Trust
- Islamic Centers Division
- American Trust Publications
- Audio-Visual Center
- Islamic Book Service
- Islamic Circle of North America
- Muslim Arab Youth Association
- Islamic Association for Palestine
- United Association for Studies and Research
- International Institute of Islamic Thought
- Muslim Communities Association
- Association of Muslim Social Scientists (of North America)
- Islamic Housing Cooperative
- Muslim Businessmen Association
- Islamic Education Department
- Occupied Land Fund (later known as the Holy Land Foundation for Relief and Development)
- Mercy International Association
- Baitul Mal Inc.
- Islamic Information Center (of America)
By setting up these many front groups, the Muslim Brotherhood was emulating the Communist Party tactic of creating interlocking front groups used during the Cold War in order to confuse its enemies and make it more difficult to discover, thus combat.
The following are excerpts from Akrams grand plan:
On the General Strategic Goal
for the Group In North America
The general strategic goal of the Group in America…is the “Enablement of Islam in North America, meaning: establishing an effective and a stable Islamic Movement led by the Muslim Brotherhood”…
Understanding the role of the Muslim Brother in North America:
“The process of settlement is a “Civilization-Jihadist Process” with all the word means. The Ikhwan must understand that their work in America is a kind of grand Jihad in eliminating and destroying the Western civilization from within and “sabotaging” its miserable house by their hands and the hands of the believers so that it is eliminated and God’s religion is made victorious over all other religions. Without this level of understanding, we are not up to this challenge and have not prepared ourselves for Jihad yet. It is a Muslim’s destiny to perform Jihad and work wherever he is and wherever he lands until the final hour comes, and there is no escape from that destiny…”
At the heart of the “Civilization-Jihadist Process” is the Islamic Center.
Understanding the role and the nature of work of “The Islamic Center” in every city with what achieves the goal of the process of settlement:
“The center we seek is the one which constitutes the “axis” of our Movement, the “perimeter” of the circle of our work, our “balance center”, the “base” for our rise and our “Dar al-Arqam” to educate us, prepare us and supply our battalions in addition to being the “niche” of our prayers. …we would like for the Islamic center to become “The House of Dawa”‘ and “the general center” in deeds first before name. As much as we own and direct these centers at the continent level, we can say we are marching successfully towards the settlement of Dawa’ in this country.”
“Meaning that the “center’s” role should be the same as the “mosque’s” role during the time of God’s prophet, God’s prayers and peace be upon him, when he marched to “settle” the Dawa’ in its first generation in Madina. From the mosque, he drew the Islamic life and provided to the world the most magnificent and fabulous civilization humanity knew. This mandates that, eventually, the region, the branch and the Usra turn into “operations rooms” for planning, direction, monitoring and leadership for the Islamic center in order to be a role model to be followed.” (When you finish this article, Google “Islamic Center” in or around where you live. I guarantee there will be at least one. There is one in my town being built now and was recently dedicated and praised by our Republican Mayor.)
The big challenge that is ahead of us is how to turn these seeds or “scattered” elements into comprehensive, stable, “settled” organizations that are connected with our Movement and which fly in our orbit and take orders from our guidance. This does not prevent but calls for each central organization to have its local branches but its connection with the Islamic center in the city is a must. (In other words, each local Islamic Center gets its marching orders and must adhere to a central Islamic authority, the Muslim Brotherhood. These “Centers” are not like your local YMCA).
“We must say that we are in a country which understands no language other than the language of the organizations, and one which does not respect or give weight to any group without effective, functional and strong organizations.”
Please spread the word. It seems the Brotherhood are gaining the upperhand in many regions worldwide. Don’t think it can’t happen here eventually.
