Headline:  Report: IDF Digging Trenches Along the Syrian Border

The IDF has begun digging trenches along the border with Syria, Walla! News reports Monday night, amid fears of real escalation between Israel and Islamists in neighboring Syria and Lebanon. The mechanical engineering company of the IDF’s Northern Command has employed tractors and borders to dig the trenches, a source told the news site, amid specific concerns regarding terrorist infiltrations by car via border crossings. “The trenches are being dug along vulnerable spots on the border, after a thorough analysis [of the risks], to prevent free traffic in the area and reduce infiltration,” the military source stated. Outposts near the Syrian border are not far from rebel positions from the Al-Nusra Front and the Free Syrian Army, who patrol the border regularly in cars and motorcycles. In addition, Western diplomatic officials said that Israel has imparted to Lebanon a stronger warning than before, emphasizing that Jerusalem will respond to any attack on Israel or Israeli institutions anywhere in the world.

Two projectiles fired from Syria landed in the Golan Heights on Tuesday. The IDF returned artillery fire toward the source of the projectiles. The army said that it scored a direct strike against the source of enemy fire. There were no immediate reports of injuries or damage in the attack. Rocket alert sirens were sounded in the area prior to the attack. The rockets fell in the Mount Hermon area and in Merom Golan. The IDF was clearing the Mount Hermon ski resort area of visitors in the aftermath of the attack.

Headline:   UN halts Gaza repairs saying donors failed to pay up

The UN agency for Palestinian refugees said on Tuesday that it cannot afford to repair Gaza homes damaged in Israel’s assault on the enclave last year because donors have failed to pay. “The agency has exhausted all funding to support repairs and rental subsidies,” the United Nations Relief and Works Agency (UNRWA) said in a statement. “$5.4 billion was pledged at the Cairo (aid) conference last October and virtually none of it has reached Gaza. This is distressing and unacceptable. “It is unclear why this funding has not been forthcoming,” it added. UNRWA said that the homes of more than 96,000 Palestine refugees were destroyed or damaged during the conflict. They made up the vast majority of the more than 100,000 homes that were hit during the 50-day conflict between Israel and Gaza’s de facto rulers Hamas. UNRWA said: “Some funds remain available to begin the reconstruction of totally destroyed homes.” But it added that cutting subsidies to displaced residents currently renting alternative accommodation could force large numbers back to UN schools and centres which are already sheltering 12,000 people.

Headline: Jordan Mulls Swap of Jihadist for Hostages, Lawmaker Says

Jordan is in indirect talks with Islamic State to secure the release of a Japanese war journalist and a Jordanian pilot held by the militants, a member of the kingdom’s parliament said Tuesday. The negotiations are taking place through religious and tribal leaders in Iraq, Bassam Al-Manaseer, chairman of the foreign affairs committee in Jordan’s lower house of parliament, said in an interview in Amman. Islamic State has demanded that Jordan release convicted jihadist Sajida al-Rishawi as its price for freeing the Japanese journalist. Manaseer said Jordan and Japan won’t negotiate directly with Islamic State and won’t free al-Rishawi in exchange for Japanese hostage Kenji Goto only. “We hope to hear good news soon,” Manaseer said.

Headline:  UN expresses concern over Lebanon border battle with IS that killed 8 soldiers

The United Nations Special Coordinator for Lebanon Sigrid Kaag expressed “grave concern” Sunday over a border battle between Lebanese forces and Syria-based fighters from the Islamic State group that killed eight soldiers, as the chaos of Syria’s war increasingly threatens the security of its Mediterranean neighbour. Kaag issued her statement as Lebanese television broadcast funerals of the soldiers killed during the fighting near the northeastern Lebanese village of Ras Baalbek on Friday, after what appeared to be a cross-border attack from neighbouring Syria. A security official who spoke on condition of anonymity said the attackers belonged to the militant Islamic State group. Kaag “expressed grave concern over the attack on the Lebanese army Friday in the area of Ras Baalbek, that led to the deaths of eight officers and soldiers and caused a number of injuries,” the statement said. Friday’s attack was the most serious attack since militants seized over 20 Lebanese soldiers and policemen in a cross-border raid in August 2014. On Sunday, Lebanese forces opened fire on suspected militants they said were in an abandoned amusement park on the eastern border with Syria.

Headline:   Lebanon Army shells Syrian border region for third day

The Lebanese Army continued shelling sporadically the outskirts of the northeastern Bekaa town of Ras Baalbek Tuesday, in a preemptive move aimed at fending off jihadi militants holed up in the rugged border area with Syria, security sources said. The Army’s artillery positions have been firing rounds of long-range projectiles and mortar bombs for several minutes every one to two hours on the outer edges of Wadi Rafeq and Qaa to discourage any potential attack by suspected ISIS and Nusra Front militants, the sources told The Daily Star. “It is a warning to the gunmen that the Army is there and ready to respond to any possible attack,” one source said. Troops have been bombing intermittently the outskirts of Ras Baalbek since Sunday. The area was the scene of deadly battles Friday between the Lebanese Army and jihadis who tried to overrun a military post in nearby Tallet al-Hamra. Tallet al-Hamra is a hill overlooking Wadi Rafeq. Qaa is a few kilometers to the north of Ras Baalbek. The Syria-based militants launched a surprise attack on an Army post in Tallet al-Hamra early Friday, prompting clashes that lasted for over 16 hours. The fighting left eight Lebanese soldiers dead and at least 22 others wounded.

Headline:  ‘Worst-case scenario’: Yemen chaos, Saudi king’s death pose new challenges for US

Headline:  Obama Seeks to Bolster Ties With Saudi Arabia

The collapse of the Yemeni government, coupled with the death early Friday of Saudi Arabia’s King Abdullah, have in an instant thrown the future of America’s fight against Islamist extremists in the volatile region into question — while potentially giving Iran more sway.  The Obama administration is still assessing the political earthquakes in the Arabian Peninsula, and for the near-term says the top priority in Yemen is the security of U.S. personnel. The State Department said it has reduced the number of personnel at the U.S. Embassy in the capital city of Sanaa. But when the sands settle, a new government – or no government at all – in Yemen could complicate one of the administration’s most active counterterror drone programs in the world. And the new leadership in Saudi Arabia raises questions about the country’s future involvement in fighting the Islamic State and other pressing issues. Further, a former U.S. diplomat close to the Saudi royal family told Fox News the two developments, which occurred within hours of each other, represent a “worst-case scenario” for the U.S. in terms of Iran’s ability to extend its influence. With the collapse of Yemen’s government, the former diplomat said Tehran’s influence is now seen in at least four Middle Eastern capitals – Sanaa in Yemen, Baghdad in Iraq, Damascus in Syria, and to a lesser extent Beirut in Lebanon.

Headline:  Car bomb kills one in Egypt’s Alexandria

Egyptian security officials say clashes between police and Islamist protesters in an eastern Cairo district have left nine demonstrators dead. They say the Sunday clashes in the Matariyah area also injured 13. Another protester was killed in similar clashes in the Mediterranean port city of Alexandria. Two suspected Islamists were also killed in the Nile Delta province of Beheira when an explosive device they were planting under a high-voltage tower exploded, according to the officials, who spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to speak to the media. The protests were staged to mark the 4th anniversary of the 2011 uprising that toppled autocrat Hosni Mubarak, and came a day after a female protester was shot dead while participating in a peaceful protest in downtown Cairo.

Syria Headline:   Seven killed in Damascus after Islamist fighters launch rocket barrage on Syrian capital

Syria Headline:     Saudi-backed rebels from Army of Islam shell major Syrian cities

Islamist fighters struck the Syrian capital with at least 38 rockets on Sunday, killing seven people, a monitoring group said, in one of heaviest attacks on Damascus in over a year. State media confirmed the attack and said at least four people were killed. It said the army was retaliating. The Saudi-backed Islam Army, based in the eastern Ghouta region near Damascus, had warned earlier that it would hit back against an air strike last week in Ghouta in which more than 40 people were killed. Damascus residents said Sunday’s rockets seemed to be mortars and Katyusha. Rami Abdulrahman, head of the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights which monitors the violence in the country, said this was the heaviest attack on the capital for more than a year. The Syrian army was shelling the rebel-held town of Douma where the Army of Islam is powerful, Abdulrahman said. Douma lies on one of the main roads linking the capital with Homs city further north. Reuters could not independently verify the reports.

Syria Headline:     Syria rebels overtake strategic base in south

Syrian insurgents including fighters from al-Qaeda’s Nusra Front, seized an important government army base in the southwestern Deraa province on Sunday, fighters who took part in the battle said. The base, one of several used to pound rebel-held villages and towns in southern Syria and along the frontier with Jordan, lies at the heart of a heavily fortified zone which has formed a southern line of defense protecting the capital, Damascus. The fighters said hundreds of insurgents armed with rocket launchers and anti-aircraft weapons had taken over the Brigade 82 base near the town of Sheikh Maskeen, close to the main north-south highway between Damascus and Jordan. “This advance will help us cut supply routes of the regime forces in the south from their supplies in the north to be able to eventually take over Deraa city,” Colonel Saber Safar, a leader of the First Army, a major faction of Western-backed rebels in the “Southern Front” grouping, told Reuters by phone. The rebel gain is the latest advance in the south, where President Bashar al-Assad’s forces have been on the defensive, losing control of large areas of countryside as well as parts of the border along with Israel near the Golan Heights, according to regional military experts and diplomats.

Iraq Headline: Iraq’s Shiite militias killed 70 civilians after IS rollback: Sunni leaders

Sunni politicians and tribal chiefs from Iraq’s eastern Diyala province accused Shiite militias on Monday of killing more than 70 unarmed civilians who had fled clashes with Islamic State militants. Interior Ministry spokesman Brig. Gen. Saad Maan denied the claims, saying IS was trying to undermine the reputation of Iraqi security forces. A local Shiite official said it was too soon to draw conclusions and suggested IS could have been behind the deaths in the eastern village of Barwanah. The accusations followed a three-day offensive in which Iraqi security forces and Shiite militias captured two dozen villages from Islamic State fighters in Diyala. The assault, which began on Friday, enabled Shiite militias, the Iraqi army and Sunni tribesmen to push the militants out of the Muqdadiya area, the closest Islamic State outpost to the Iranian border 40 km (25 miles) to the east.

Iraq Headline:  Passenger plane struck by gunfire at Baghdad airport

Gunfire struck a commercial aircraft as it landed at Baghdad’s airport, prompting at least two airlines to suspend flights to Baghdad. The incident Monday suggests Iraqi airports have become susceptible to attacks, with Islamic State militants’ advances in gaining territory, especially around Baghdad, and more sophisticated weaponry. The Boeing 737-800 of Flydubai, a budget airline based in the United Arab Emirates, was carrying 154 passengers when it arrived with “damage consistent with small-arms fire,” the airline said. It added no one was injured, but airport officials said one passenger, a girl, was injured but not severely. A security official at the airport said the plane was sprayed with gunfire, from an unknown source, as it touched down. Although Flydubai downplayed the incident, two larger airlines headquartered in the United Arab Emirates announced flights to and from Baghdad would be suspended. Emirates and Etihad canceled their flights Tuesday, Etihad saying in a statement, “This took effect from January 26 until further notice.

Kurdish Headline: Syrian Kurds ‘drive Islamic State out of Kobane’

Kurdish Headline: Battles continue outside Syria’s Kobani after Kurds claim victory

Kurdish Headline: Turkish police fire tear gas to stop people entering Kobani

Kurdish forces have driven Islamic State (IS) militants from Kobane, officials say, ending a four-month battle for the northern Syrian town. Fighters from the Popular Protection Units (YPG) were said to have entered outlying areas in the east of the town after the jihadists retreated. The US said anti-IS forces were in control of 90% of the town. Kobane was seen as a major test of the US-led coalition’s strategy to combat IS in Syria with air strikes. Tens of thousands of people fled over the nearby border with Turkey after IS launched an offensive in September, capturing about 300 nearby villages before entering the predominantly Kurdish town itself. The fighting has left at least 1,600 people dead, among them 1,196 jihadists, the UK-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights says. Meanwhile, Turkish police fired tear gas Tuesday to stop people trying to cross into the Syrian Kurdish town of Kobani, after Kurdish forces drove out ISIS militants who besieged the city for four months, a Kurdish politician and a journalist said. Groups from Suruc, a border town overlooking Kobani, and nearby villages gathered to cross the border and celebrate alongside Kurdish fighters earlier in the day, but police stopped them, a journalist in Suruc said. “The people are coming out and are happy,” Adham Basho, a Syrian Kurdish politician said. “Police are using tear gas… they’ve closed the roads.”

Kurdish fighters of the People’s Protection Units (YPG) called upon residents of the Khashman area and other Kurdish neighborhoods in the city of Hasakah, in northeastern Syria, to evacuate their houses before Tuesday midnight. Speaking to ARA News in Hasakah, M.A. from the Khashman area said that the YPG forces asked them to leave their homes before Tuesday midnight, pointing out that the clashes between the YPG and the pro-regime militia of the National Defense Army may renew at any moment. The Kurdish fighters of the YPG (backed by Assayish forces) have been battling pro-Assad gunmen in the city of Hasakah for more than a week. Mahmoud Birko, a Kurdish resident of the Tel Hajar neighborhood in Hasakah, reported that Kurdish military reinforcements has arrived to the area. “The Kurdish forces are in a state of high alert. They are watching the situation with great concern, particularly as tension prevails in the city since the morning,” Birko said.

Headline:  Video Appears to Show Decapitated Body of a Japanese Hostage of ISIS

Japan’s prime minister expressed outrage on Sunday at an image released Saturday that appeared to show the decapitated body of one of two Japanese hostages captured by Islamic State militants, and President Obama condemned what he called a “brutal murder.” The kidnappers had threatened to kill the men if a Friday deadline passed for a $200 million ransom from Japan. On Saturday, a video appeared in which one of the hostages, Kenji Goto, a 47-year-old journalist, was shown holding a photo of what appeared to be the decapitated body of the other hostage, Haruna Yukawa, 42, an adventurer. The prime minister, Shinzo Abe, said that while experts were still analyzing the photo, it had “a high chance of being real.” Speaking on a television debate show, Mr. Abe condemned the apparent killing of Mr. Yukawa as an “outrageous and unforgivable act of violence,” and demanded the immediate release of Mr. Goto.

Headline:  Muslim Brotherhood Starts A Political Party Out Of Chicago

When it comes to the United States government, most people usually know it to be a two-party system. For the longest time, branches of the government have been delegated as Democrat or Republican. Despite this, there are technically more parties in government, mostly supportive of the aforementioned two parties. The Inquisitr reported on these parties, such as the two offsets of the Republican Party, the Tea Party and the Libertarian Party, as well as the offset of the Democratic Party known as the Progressive Party. Then there are independent parties developed out of cause. The Green Party, for example, was developed to support a political ideology based on environmentalism, social justice, and grassroots democracy. Now there is a new party that is getting a lot of attention. The single most important detail is the fact this may be the first political party created from a Muslim organization. According to the Center for Security Policy, the U.S. Council of Muslim Organizations (USCMO) has begun building the framework for a political party. USCMO’s party will also be the first political party in the U.S. to be openly connected to the Muslim Brotherhood. From what is reported by sources, this party arose right after Sabri Samirah, a Jordanian Brotherhood member, was allowed into the U.S. by President Barack Obama back in 2014 following an 11-year ban. He immediately galvanized Muslims to form the party, which is now recognized as the UMMA, an offset of the United Muslim Americans Association (UMAA).

Headline: ISIS Statement Urges Attacks, Announces Khorasan State

ISIS released a new statement Monday urging Muslims in the West to attack Westerners by any means possible. The statement also announces the Islamic State’s expansion to “Khorasan,” an area encompassing Afghanistan and Pakistan, and celebrates the death of the Saudi King Abdullah, calling on Allah to “cast him into hell.” In the propaganda statement, released online by ISIS media wing Al-Furqan and translated into English by Al-Hayat Media, Abu Muhammad al-Adnani says: We bring the mujahideen the good news of the Islamic State’s expansion to Khorasan (a region encompassing Afghanistan, Pakistan, and other nearby lands). Therefore, we call upon all the mujahideen in Khorasan to join the caravan of the Khilafah [caliphate] and abandon disunity and factionalism. Adnani mocks Western attempts to stem the attacks from ISIS and calls on European Muslims to intensify their attempts to cause terror and loss of life in their home countries.

Headline:   Ukraine: Intensified fighting kills 9 troops, wounds 29

A series of rocket attacks has left 30 people dead and many more injured in the city of Mariupol in east Ukraine. Ukraine blamed pro-Russia rebels, but the separatists said Ukrainian forces were behind the attacks.  East Ukraine’s main rebel leader claimed he had begun an offensive against Mariupol, but later said he “will not storm the city”. The Organisation for Security and Co-operation in Europe (OSCE) said the rockets came from rebel-held areas. But Alexander Zakharchenko, head of the self-proclaimed Donetsk People’s Republic, said his forces had not carried out “active operations” near Mariupol until Saturday, Russian news agencies report. However, he added that after Kiev blamed the rebels for the attack, he ordered his troops to “neutralise” the positions of Ukrainian troops east of the port city. Meanwhile, Ukraine’s security service has published what it claims are intercepted audio messages between separatist rebels speaking about the Mariupol attack.

Iran is continuing to threaten to retaliate against Israel for an airstrike last week, in which Iran’s General Mohammad Ali Allahdadi was killed. On Monday, a senior official in Iran’s Revolutionary Guards, General Ramezan Sharif, declared that the airstrike “will accelerate the collapse of the Zionist regime.” “Undoubtedly, the bloods shed in the front of awakening the Islamic Ummah have provided the ground more than ever for wiping out the Zionist regime,” Sharif said in Tehran, according to the Fars news agency. He called on Muslim states to unite and said that the Islamic countries should desist from provoking rifts and use all their capacities to fight “the child-killing Zionist regime” instead. Another Iranian official, General Mohammad Reza Naqdi, said that the airstrike justified “striking painful blows at the Zionist regime.” Naqdi warned “the Zionists” that they would soon be forced to leave “the occupied Palestinian territories”, and added, according to Fars, “They will not experience tranquility, these bloods will not remain without a response and they should remain fully alerted until complete annihilation of the Zionist regime.”

Headline:   Islamic State claws are in Afghanistan soil, warns former US and NATO forces commander

FORMER supreme allied commander of US and NATO forces Admiral James Stavridis has warned against a withdrawal from Afghanistan, claiming the war-torn country is at risk of again becoming a global magnet for terrorism. In an exclusive interview with The Daily Telegraph, the four-star admiral, regarded as one of the world’s leading military strategists, said coalition countries including Australia had to remain engaged in Afghanistan as Islamic State tried to spread its reign of terror. His calls for the US to remain engaged despite a 2016 deadline for withdrawal of forces echoed Foreign Minister Julie Bishop’s support yesterday, revealed in The Telegraph, for a longer Australian deployment. “We are seeing co-operation between the Taliban and IS,” Admiral Stavridis said. “It is extremely worrying. It underscores the need for constant surveillance especially electronic surveillance. ‘‘What is concerning is that the different groups are also competing. We have to stay engaged in Afghanistan. We don’t need to send 10,000 allied forces back in there but we have to maintain a strong mentoring and training and assistance in the country. “We cannot takes our eyes off ­Afghanistan. We have to still be ­engaged there.” Admiral Stavridis said the US needed to also maintain its strong intelligence network in the troubled nation, which it shared with Australia through the ‘‘five eyes’’ network.

Headline:  Several dead as convoy ambushed in South Sudan

At least 11 people, including five journalists, were killed in South Sudan’s western region, when gunmen attacked their convoy in the country’s west, a military spokesman told the Associated Press news agency. Col. Phiip Aguer blamed the attack on Tuesday on the Ugandan rebel group the Lord’s Resistance Army believed to be hiding in neighboring countries. Aguer said the rebels came into South Sudan’s Western Bahr el-Ghazal state from Sudan, Chad or Central African Republic. South Sudan is struggling to contain lawlessness as conflict between the government and the rebels continues. The fighting started in December 2013, when forces loyal to former Vice President Riek Machar fought the national army of President Salva Kiir’s government. The two sides have signed several peace deals brokered by neighboring governments, but none has actually stopped the warfare in the oil-rich country.

The kidnappers told staff they were members of the security forces when they entered the hotel before dawn, the official said, citing witnesses. They drove deputy minister Hassan al-Saghir off to an unknown destination. No group immediately claimed responsibility for his abduction but Libya has been rocked by a spate of kidnappings of both foreigners and Libyans since the overthrow of longtime dictator Moammer Qaddafi in a NATO-backed uprising in 2011.

Militants have attacked a hotel popular with foreigners in Libya’s capital, killing three guards and injuring 12 other people, officials say. Several gunmen stormed the Corinthia Hotel in Tripoli and opened fire in the reception area. A car bomb also exploded outside the hotel.  Some of the gunmen are still thought to be inside the hotel. It is not clear whether any staff or guests are there. One foreigner, a Philippine national, was among the injured, officials said. A Twitter account linked to Islamic State said the group had attacked the hotel. The claim could not be verified. A civilian who witnessed the attack told the BBC: “I suddenly heard shots and saw people running towards me, and we all escaped from the back [of the hotel] through the underground garage. The hotel did a lockdown after that.” The total number of attackers is not clear. Different sources at the scene said there were between three and five – one says that several of the attackers have blown themselves up. A local official was quoted by the Reuters news agency as telling local TV that at least eight people, including five foreigners, had been killed in the attack.

Headline:   Algeria and Niger to ‘pool’ resources against jihadists

Algeria and Niger are set to “pool” their resources to tackle the rising threat posed by jihadist groups in the Sahel region, Nigerien President Mahamadou Issoufou said on Monday. “We have agreed to mobilise and pool our operational capabilities and intelligence to deal with terrorist threats and criminal organisations,” Issoufou said in Algiers after a meeting with Algerian counterpart Abdelaziz Bouteflika. “Algeria and Niger share a 1,000-kilometre (600-mile) border and have large desert areas that need securing,” he added. The leaders discussed the situation in neighbouring Libya, which has been rocked by fierce fighting between troops loyal to the internationally recognised government and mainly Islamist militias, as well as in Mali. Niger was one of five Sahel countries to call for international intervention in Libya, plunged into chaos since the NATO-backed ouster of strongman Moamer Kadhafi in 2011, “in order to neutralise armed groups”. Algeria meanwhile has called for national dialogue and the strengthening of democratic institutions in the North African nation.

Headline:   Germany halts arms exports to Saudi Arabia citing regional instability – report

Germany has stopped arms exports to one of its biggest buyers, Saudi Arabia. The instability in the region led Chancellor Angela Merkel and her ministers to take the decision. The information hasn’t been officially confirmed. According to the Bild newspaper, weapons orders from the Middle Eastern country have either been “rejected, pure and simple,” or they have been deferred for further consideration. The decision was made by Germany’s Security Council on Wednesday, which includes Merkel, Vice Chancellor Sigmar Gabriel and seven other ministers. “According to government sources, the situation in the region is too unstable to ship arms there,” despite the fact that Saudi Arabia is “one of the most important clients of Germany’s arms industry,” with €360 million ($400 million) of arms shipments authorized in 2013, Bild added. The talks between Merkel and the ministers were held in secret and the government said it won’t comment on the allegations.

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has said his country opposes the idea of a Kurdish-controlled autonomous government in northern Syria, local media reported on Tuesday.
“We do not want a new Iraq. What’s this? Northern Iraq,” Erdogan told the Hurriyet newspaper aboard a plane en route from an African tour at the weekend. He was referring to the Kurdish-controlled part of Iraq known as Iraqi Kurdistan. “A northern Syria there after northern Iraq… It is not possible for us to accept this,” he said. “Such formations will lead to grave problems in the future.” His comments came as Kurdish militia drove the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria insurgents from the Syrian town of Kobane just across the Turkish border and raised their flags on Monday, in a heavy blow to jihadists after months of intensive fighting.

In fierce fighting Sunday that killed more than 200 combatants, Nigerian troops clashed with Islamic extremists who attacked Maiduguri, the biggest city in northeastern Nigeria, from three fronts. At the same time the insurgents continued scorched-earth attacks on villages some 125 miles to the south in Adamawa state, slitting throats of residents, looting and burning homes and abducting dozens of trapped women and children, according to Vandu Kainu and other escaping survivors. Adamawa state legislator Adamu Kamale appealed for troops to protect civilians in Michika, where six villages are under attack. “The attacks have continued since Friday with no presence of security operatives,” he complained. The multiple attacks come as U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry arrived in Lagos, Nigeria’s commercial capital nearly 1,000 miles southwest of Maiduguri, over fears of violence around critical Feb. 14 elections.

United Nations peacekeepers in the northern Malian town of Gao killed at least three people on Tuesday when they used live rounds to disperse protesters there, witnesses said, but a U.N. spokesman said only warning shots were fired. Violence erupted as peacekeepers were meeting local leaders angry over a plan to create a buffer zone in the north that would force pro-Bamako militia in the area to disarm while Tuareg separatist rebels to the north would be less affected. A witness at the protest said U.N. troops started shooting after initially using tear gas to try to disperse crowds. He said he saw a dead protester who had been shot in the face. A second witness said he saw four dead and four others who had been injured taken into Gao hospital. Medical officials there were not immediately available for comment. “U.N. forces panicked and they opened fire on the protesters,” a Malian military source in Gao told Reuters. “There are already three dead and many injured.”

Rebels occupying Yemen’s capital have dispersed a handful of demonstrators protesting against them, firing automatic rifles into the air, breaking journalists’ cameras and scuffling with the crowd while detaining 11 people. In another protest Sunday in Sanaa, around 200 demonstrators gathered in Change Square for a march toward the presidential palace. The square was the birthplace of Yemen’s 2011 uprising against longtime autocrat Ali Abdullah Saleh. State news agency SABA reported that parliament postponed a meeting which had been scheduled for Sunday to decide on whether to accept the resignation of Abed Rabbo Mansour Hadi, who quit as president Thursday along with his Cabinet. Hadi remains at his private residence. Meanwhile, U.N. envoy Jamal Benomar was in Sanaa meeting with Houthi representatives, as well a variety of Yemeni political parties.

Headline:  Kosovo hit by worst unrest since independence

Riot police and protesters fought running battles in the Kosovo capital Pristina on Tuesday as anti-government protests erupted into the worst unrest since the former Serbian province seceded in 2008. A Reuters reporter saw masked police officers firing tear gas and water cannon, trying to disperse about 2,000 protesters who had taken to the streets in rallies organized by opposition political parties. Ambulances attended to dozens of injured people as police pursued protesters into side streets around central Pristina. It was the second bout of unrest since Saturday, set off by popular anger over a government climbdown over the fate of a huge mining complex claimed by Serbia. The protesters are also clamoring for the dismissal of an ethnic Serb minister in the mainly Kosovo Albanian government after he branded as “savages” a group of Albanians who lost relatives in Kosovo’s 1998-99 war and had protested against ethnic Serb pilgrims marking Orthodox Christmas in January. Kosovo broke away from Serbia in 1999 with the help of NATO air strikes to halt the killing and expulsion of ethnic Albanians by Serbian forces waging a counter-insurgency war.

Headline: Nearly 50 million Americans now on food stamps as middle class plummets into poverty

Fifty years after President Lyndon B. Johnson declared a “war on poverty,” and five years after President Obama’s administration declared the “Great Recession” over, a record number of Americans remain on taxpayer-supported federal and state assistance programs. According to the most recent government figures, as reported by CNSNews.com, more than 46 million Americans are not only currently receiving some level of food stamp assistance but have been receiving that assistance for more than three years straight. The news website further elaborated: The number of beneficiaries on the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP)–AKA food stamps–has topped 46,000,000 for 38th straight months, according to data released by the Department of Agriculture (USDA). In October 2014, the latest month reported, there were 46,674,364 Americans on food stamps. Food stamp recipients have exceeded 46 million since September 2011. The number of people receiving food stamps in October represented an increase of 214,434, up from 46,459,930 in September.

Headline:   Russia cut to ‘junk’, as Lavrov says West wants ‘blood’

Ratings firm S&P has cut Russian bonds to “junk” status, with Moscow accusing the West of wanting “blood” amid threats of further sanctions. The agency said in its note on Monday (26 January) Russian bonds are not worth buying because of low oil prices, the risk of more economic sanctions, and long-term Russian mismanagement. It said the downgrade “reflects a lack of external financing due to the introduction of economic sanctions and the sharp decline in oil prices”. “We anticipate that asset quality in the financial system will deteriorate given the weaker rouble; restricted access of key areas of the economy to international capital markets due to sanctions; and economic recession in 2015”, it added. “We do not currently expect that the government will be able to effectively tackle the long-standing structural obstacles (perceived corruption, the weak rule of law, the state’s pervasive role in the economy, and the challenging business and investment climate) to stronger economic growth”. The Russian finance minister, Anton Siluanov, accused the US-based company of “exorbitant pessimism”. “There’s no reason to dramatise the situation … there are no grounds for foreign investors’ withdrawing assets from Russia”, he told Russian media the same day.

Headline:  Iran Is Ditching The Dollar In Foreign Trade

Iran is no longer using the US dollar in foreign-trade transactions and is replacing it with other currencies, t he deputy governor at the Iranian Central Bank Gholami Kamyab said, according to  Sputnik News . “In trade exchanges with the foreign countries, Iran uses other currencies including Chinese yuan, euro, Turkish lira, Russian ruble, and South Korean won,”  Kamyab reportedly said. He also reportedly added that Iran was considering bilateral currency-swap agreements, which would allow partners to exchange one foreign currency for the equivalent in the other currency. He did not explicitly name partners, however. Although nuclear sanctions imposed on Iran over the years are meant to deter the state from building up its nuclear-arms program, they could also be the catalyst that is pushing Iran to look for new economic partners. As Ian Bremmer noted, the glaring drawback of using coercive sanctions (and other weaponizations of finance) is that the targeted countries can and will increasingly diversify away from the dollar. And over the past few years, Iran has been strengthening economic and military ties with others countries (including China and Russia) in an effort to circumvent the Western-imposed sanctions. Turkey ran an extensive gas-for-gold scheme with Iran, which ran from about  March 2012 to fall 2013 and yielded Iran more than $13 billion amid crippling sanctions implemented by the US over the country’s perceived nuclear program. “It’s a huge amount of money, Jonathan Schanzer, a former terrorism-finance analyst at the US Department of the Treasury, told Business Insider last year.  “You can’t ignore the fact that the Turks helped Iran with a massive sanctions-busting scheme.”

Headline:   Iraq lowers oil price forecast in draft 2015 budget to $55 a barrel

Oil traded near its lowest close in almost six years as OPEC’s warning that prices may surge without new investment in production failed to shift the market’s focus from more immediate signs of a supply glut. U.S. crude inventories probably rose to 402.1 million barrels last week, the highest in records dating back to August 1982, a Bloomberg News survey shows before a government report on Wednesday. A spike to $200 a barrel is possible without adequate investment for the long term, OPEC Secretary-General Abdalla El-Badri said Monday. Oil slumped almost 50 percent last year as the U.S. pumped crude at the fastest rate in more than three decades and the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries resisted calls to reduce output. Prices may drop to as low as $30 a barrel, Gary Cohn, the president of Goldman Sachs Group Inc., said in an interview with CNBC on Monday.

Headline: Plague is ‘endemic in Madagascar': WHO chief

The head of the World Health Organization is warning about an “alarming” plague outbreak in Madagascar that could worsen, particularly as fleas that transmit the disease to humans have developed immunity to insecticide. In her address to the WHO’s executive board meeting Monday, executive director Margaret Chan reviewed the ongoing threat from “emerging and epidemic-prone diseases,” including the Ebola outbreak in West Africa, avian influenza, and the growing threat of human resistance to antibiotics. But she also warned of a plague outbreak in Madagascar that began last November, but is receiving little public attention despite its “disturbing dimensions.” Of particular concern is the fact that fleas that transmit the disease from rodents to humans have developed resistance to the main insecticide used to control their population. Plague is “endemic in Madagascar,” where seasonal outbreaks can be exacerbated by poverty and an increasing number of people living in close urban settings, Chan said in her address. Plague responds well to treatment when detected early, which is possible with a “cheap and reliable” diagnostic test that provides results within 15 minutes. However, the current outbreak has managed to establish a foothold in the capital Antananarivo, and could spread easily through the city’s densely populated slums, Chan warned. “This is alarming, as around eight per cent of cases progress to the lethal pneumonic form, which transmits directly from person to person,” she said.

Headline: Judge Strikes Down Alabama’s Gay Marriage Ban

A federal judge ruled Friday that Alabama’s ban on same-sex marriage is unconstitutional. The judge, U.S. District Judge Callie V.S. Granade, ruled that Alabama’s constitutional amendment banning gay marriage, known as the Sanctity of Marriage Amendment, violates the 14th Amendment’s due process and equal protection clauses. “If anything, Alabama’s prohibition of same-sex marriage detracts from its goal of promoting optimal environments for children,” Granade writes. “Those children currently being raised by same-sex parents in Alabama are just as worthy of protection and recognition by the State as are the children being raised by opposite-sex parents. Yet Alabama’s Sanctity laws harms the children of same-sex couples for the same reasons that the Supreme Court found that the Defense of Marriage Act harmed the children of same-sex couples.” The suit was brought against the state by two women, Cari Searcy and Kimberly McKeand, who traveled out of state to get married in order to become the legal parents of their son. “I am a parent in every way to our son, but legally I am still considered a stranger,” Searcy told the Associated Press in May. “We just want our son to have the same protections and securities as other Alabama families.” “There has been no evidence presented that these marriage laws have any effect on the choices of couples to have or raise children, whether they are same-sex couples or opposite-sex couples,” Granade wrote in Friday’s ruling. “In sum, the laws in question are an irrational way of promoting biological relationships in Alabama.”

Headline:  Brazil’s most populous region facing worst drought in 80 years

Brazilian Environment Minister Izabella Teixeira has said the country’s three most populous states are experiencing their worst drought since 1930. The states of Sao Paulo, Rio de Janeiro and Minas Gerais must save water, she said after an emergency meeting in the capital Brasilia. Ms Teixeira described the water crisis as “delicate” and “worrying”. Industry and agriculture are expected to be affected, further damaging Brazil’s troubled economy. The drought is also having an impact on energy supplies, with reduced generation from hydroelectric dams. The BBC’s Julia Carneiro in Rio de Janeiro says Brazil is supposed to be in the middle of its rainy season but there has been scant rainfall in the south-east and the drought shows no sign of abating. The crisis comes at a time of high demand for energy, with soaring temperatures in the summer months. “Since records for Brazil’s south-eastern region began 84 years ago, we have never seen such a delicate and worrying situation,” said Ms Teixeira. Her comments came at the end of a meeting with five other ministers at the presidential palace in Brasilia to discuss the drought.

Tens of millions of people along the Philadelphia-to-Boston corridor rushed to get home and settle in Monday as a fearsome storm swirled in with the potential for hurricane-force winds and 1 to 3 feet of snow that could paralyze the Northeast for days. Snow was coating cars and building up on sidewalks and roadways in New York City by evening, and flurries were flying in Boston. Forecasters said the storm would build into a blizzard, and the brunt of it would hit late Monday and into Tuesday. As the snow got heavier, much of the region rushed to shut down. More than 6,500 flights in and out of the Northeast were canceled, and many of them may not take off again until Wednesday. Schools and businesses let out early. Government offices closed.

The video above will show you how the Lord helped me right after my dog had to be put to sleep.

MORE BLESSINGS
If you watched the video I post on January 21, 2015 concerning Pastor Fiaz you would know why I asked for help for the Pastor.  If you go back to that 21st post you will see the names of the people who Jesus touched to help Fiaz.  Today Shawn at Ascent Ministries emailed me again and told me more good news that 3 more people stepped up to help Fiaz and his wife get back on their feet to continue to preach Jesus and take care of the needs of the poor. I want to thank of my Brother and Sisters in the Lord who contacted Ascent for me to help Pastor Fiaz. Thank you Elizabeth G., Robert M., and Alison M. for your giving heart! (Frank)
 
Our Lord Jesus has again opened the door for me to keep spreading His work He gave me to do via my prophecy book The Last Chronicles of Planet Earth.  For the past 4 years God has shown me the importance of getting His teachings about the last days to as many people as I can in Africa. Recently I had a leader of a women’s ministry in Kenya asked me if she could be a partner with me so she could take my work out to the churches she has been teaching in.  As you can see from the pictures below I just sent her a book of my books that will fall into her hands and, then she will pick other women leaders to use the books in home fellowships. In the mean time Ascent Ministries is working with me to get Bibles to Sister Ruth in Kenya.  I am truly grateful to Christ to be blessed to have a part in His work to lead as many as He wills to His salvation.

Headline:   Hamas calls on Hezbollah to unite fight against Israel

Headline:   Hezbollah under pressure to act after Israeli strike

A letter purported to be from Mohammed Deif, the leader of Hamas’s armed wing, on Thursday appealed to the Lebanese Hezbollah group to unite with Hamas in battling Israel. The letter, posted on the website of Hezbollah-run Al-Manar TV, suggests the Palestinian Hamas and Hezbollah were patching up a rift over the Syrian war. Hamas has been hostile toward Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, while Hezbollah, backed by Iran, has been fighting against the rebels trying to topple him. “The true enemy of the nation is the Zionist enemy and all rifles must be directed against it,” said the letter, which carried Deif’s signature. “All forces of resistance must direct their coming battle as one.” Deif was targeted in an Israeli bombing in last summer’s Gaza war. The letter offered Hamas’s condolences to Hezbollah leader Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah over the killing of six of its fighters in an Israeli air strike on Sunday in Syria near the Israeli-occupied Golan Heights.

Headline:    ‘Assad, Hezbollah and Iran are training local militias to combat Israel’

The Free Syria Army has been monitoring Iranian, Lebanese, and even Russian soldiers on the border with Israel, a Syrian opposition field commander told The Times of Israel on Wednesday, as his forces plan a siege on the government-held regional capital of Quneitra. In a rare Skype interview from Amman, Jordan, where he is currently on leave, a battalion commander who spoke on condition of anonymity said that Mughniyeh, General Mohammad Ali Allahdadi and the 10 others killed by an apparent Israeli airstrike on Sunday were likely touring the Quneitra area, in part, to raise the morale of Shiite soldiers fighting alongside the Assad regime. But “they also may have been there to plan something which we do not know of,” he allowed. “They may have received new weaponry.” Despite the widespread presence of his men on the ground, the comments of the Free Syrian Army commander revealed how little his forces know about the movements and preparations of Hezbollah and the Iranians in the area. Lebanese news agency El-Nashra reported on Wednesday that Iran and Hezbollah, in coordination with the Assad regime, were preparing “a large strategic plan” for Quneitra. The plan included engaging the IDF along the 150-kilometer (93-mile) Israeli border with Syria and Lebanon, and training local militias on the Syrian Golan to combat Israel.

Headline:   Fury in Israel Over Obama’s Mossad ‘Lies’

A senior Israeli official delivered an uncommonly harsh attack on US President Barack Obama’s administration Thursday evening, following the American report that alleged that Mossad Head Tamir Pardo had warned US senators against further Iran sanctions, in contradiction of Israel’s official stance. “The fraudulent claims against the Mossad Head were raised by the Americans yesterday, despite a message that had been transmitted to them on Tuesday by Intelligence Minister [Yuval] Steintz,” the senior Israeli source told Channel 2 news. He added that Israel had gone over the minutes of the meeting between Pardo and the delegation of senators, and that Pardo had not said what was attributed to him. “Leaking the Mossad Head’s statements, even if they had not been falsified, is a serious breach of all the rules,” the senior source added. “Friends do not behave like this. Information from a secret meeting must not leak out.” Mossad Head Tamir Pardo denied on Thursday the report – which was carried by Bloomberg news – claiming that the Mossad disagrees with Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu about the need to press new sanctions on Iran. The report said that Mossad officials advised US senators who were visiting Israel recently to hold off on further Iran sanctions, saying that they would hamper, not help, efforts to persuade Iran to give up or allow full international supervision of its nuclear program. “The Head of Mossad did not say that he opposes additional sanctions on Iran,” said the spy agency Thursday.

Headline:    Hamas backs away from confrontation with ISIL, Al Qaida

Hamas, facing a disgruntled rank-and-file, has eased restrictions on supporters of Al Qaida and Islamic State of Iraq and Levant. Palestinian sources said Hamas, which unofficially continues to control the Gaza Strip, has reduced operations against jihadist militias. They said Hamas security forces were ordered not to arrest Al Qaida and ISIL supporters unless they posed an immediate threat. “Hamas has decided that it does not want or need another confrontation with the jihadists,” a source said. In mid-January 2015, Hamas allowed Al Qaida and ISIL supporters to demonstrate in Gaza City against cartoons of Islam’s founder, Mohammed in a French magazine. At one point, some 200 Islamists, many of them carrying ISIL-type black flags, stormed the French Cultural Center. Hamas security forces did not clash with the protesters. Instead, they formed a cordon to block the jihadists from entering the French center, bombed several times over the last year. The rally marked the first time that Hamas approved an Al Qaida-aligned demonstration against the West. The sources said many Hamas members, including those linked to the security forces, were transferring their support to jihadist militias amid the halt in government salaries over the last six months.

Headline:    Nasrallah Expected to Reveal Stance on Quneitra Raid on Friday 30

Lebanon’s government condemned Thursday the Israeli strike on Syria’s Golan Heights which left six Hezbollah fighters dead, with ministers describing talks over the matter as calm and civilized. The government blasted the Israeli aggression on the Syrian town of Qunaitra which killed six Lebanese, Information Minister Ramzi Joreige said after the session, which was chaired by Prime Minister Tammam Salam at the Grand Serail. Speaking at the outset of the session, Salam said that the government had to “contain the repercussions of developments in the region,” in reference to Qunaitra’s attack, “and go ahead with addressing people’s needs and implementing security plans in the country.” The March 14 coalition called on Hezbollah to avoid dragging Lebanon into a new war with Israel through its possible retaliation to the Sunday strike.

Syria Headline:   Syrian Opposition Meets in Cairo to Discuss Moscow Talks

Syria Headline:   US Gives $6 Million to Syria Opposition Government

Syria’s regime-tolerated domestic opposition and members of the main exiled group demanding the president’s ouster met Thursday in Cairo to discuss Moscow’s invitation to host talks with the Damascus government. The exiled National Coalition and top opposition figure Moaz al-Khatib have already announced they will not attend the talks aimed at finding a political solution to Syria’s nearly four-year war. The internal opposition has said invited members are free to decide whether to attend the January 26-29 talks in the Russian capital. “The purpose of the conference is to discuss attending the Moscow meeting and to unify the Syrian opposition’s political views,” said Mohamed Hijazi, an official with the domestic National Coordination Committee for Democratic Change. The National Coalition was being informally represented at the three-day conference in Cairo by several of its members, including Ahmed Jarba, a former NC chief who is close to Saudi Arabia. A Coalition source said its members were not attending as official representatives. “The Coalition as a body was not invited, invitations were only issued to 20 individual members,” the source said. “Five members are attending, but as individuals.” “The Coalition decided no one would attend as an official representative because the Coalition was not invited as a body. We don’t know the agenda of this meeting and we don’t know who else is attending.”

Syria Headline:   Syria regime barrel bombs kill 13 in Homs: activists

Syria Headline:   Syria death toll rises as weather improves

Thirteen people were killed in Syrian government raids using barrel bombs dropped by helicopter on a rebel-held area of central Homs province, activists said Thursday. The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said two children were among the dead in the Wednesday attack on Hula. The Britain-based group said new raids using barrel bombs were carried out in the provinces of Homs and northwestern Idlib Thursday, but there was no immediate toll. The end of a recent spate of bad weather in Syria has coincided with the return of intensive regime airstrikes, as daily death tolls in the war-ravaged country returned to the 100-plus mark. The Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said regime forces carried out 211 airstrikes between mid-Tuesday and mid-Wednesday. They included Tuesday’s barrel bomb attack on a livestock market in Hassakeh province, which the Observatory said killed 43 civilians and wounded over 150 others, revising upward an earlier toll. Eighty-eight of the attacks were carried out by warplanes and more than 123 were barrel bombs dropped by helicopter, the Observatory added.

Iraq Headline: In Iraq, ISIS Leaves Behind Hidden Explosives

Islamic State terrorists sow death long after they depart, and as Iraqi Kurdish forces regain ground, they – and the civilians returning to their homes – face the threat of unexploded bombs and booby traps. “These people were very imaginative, like devils,” said Marwan Sydo Hisn, a Kurdish bomb disposal expert currently based in Sinuni, a town in the northwestern Sinjar area that was recaptured from ISIS fighters in late December. “Look at this one,” he said, thumbing through pictures on his smart phone. “We found this massage belt that they had stuffed with a small quantity of explosives, perfectly put back together and set up to explode on the next person to turn it on.” One consisted of TNT concealed inside a TV set triggered by the use of a PlayStation controller. Another contraption was a gold ring conspicuously left lying on the floor and rigged to kill its finder. Some houses were webbed with trip wires and lines connecting bombs to doorknobs. “We have a list of 24 different types of devices they used in this area,” said Darwish Mussa Ali, another explosives expert.

Iraq Headline:  ISIS Gaining Strength, Warns Iraqi VP Ayad Allawi

Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi said on Thursday he feared lower revenues from falling global oil prices could hurt his country’s military campaign against Islamic State. Speaking after attending a meeting of members of the U.S.-led coalition against Islamic State in London, Abadi appealed for more training and equipment for his military. He said Iraq’s economy had been hard hit by the oil price slump. “Oil prices have dropped to about 40 percent of their level last year. Iraq’s economy and budget relies 85 percent on oil and this has been disastrous for us,” he told a news conference. “We don’t want to see a reverse of our military victory due to our fiscal and budget problems.” When asked how the coalition could help, Abadi said Baghdad could be allowed to defer payment for ammunition and weapons.

A suicide attack in the Taji area, north of the Iraqi capital, killed at least seven people and wounded 17 Thursday, security and medical officials said. It was not immediately clear if the target was the area’s sprawling military base or an entrance to Taji itself, and the number of suicide bombers was unknown. U.S. military trainers are based at Taji, helping to instruct some 1,600 Iraqi soldiers in a six-week program aimed at readying them to face ISIS. There was no immediate claim for the attack, but suicide bombings are a tactic almost exclusively employed by Sunni extremist groups in Iraq, including ISIS.

The source said in an interview for IraqiNews.com,”Violent clashes broke out between the Kurdish Peshmerga forces and elements of ISIS in al-Quosiyat area north of Mosul, after the Peshmerga had advanced into the region,” adding that, “The fighting is still ongoing, and the international coalition aircrafts are flying intensely over Mosul and its outskirts, forming an aerial umbrella to protect the joint forces in the north and south of Mosul.” The source, who requested anonymity, added, “The ISIS elements burned tyres in different parts of central Mosul and areas experiencing the military operations, to block the coalition pilots’ vision and conceal the movements of its vehicles.”

Headline: Shelling of city bus in east Ukraine leaves 13 dead

Headline:  Army retreats, buffer zone deal reached

Hours after a new peace initiative for Ukraine began taking shape, mortar shells rained down Thursday on the center of the main rebel-held city in the east, killing at least 13 people at a bus stop. The deaths in Donetsk sparked wrath and grief that was swiftly exploited by pro-Russian rebel leaders, who paraded captive Ukrainian troops through the city to be punched, kicked and insulted by enraged residents. Diplomats from Russia, Ukraine, France and Germany had met in Berlin a day ago to thrash out a tentative dividing line from which the warring sides would pull back their heavy weapons.  That solution already looks doomed. Fighting in eastern Ukraine is now fiercer than ever in some locations, NATO’s top commander in Europe, U.S. Air Force Gen. Philip Breedlove, said Thursday in Brussels. He added that weapons systems seen now in the region have in the past heralded a fresh incursion by Russian troops. It is far from clear who fired Thursday’s deadly mortars and both sides accused the other.

Headline:  Iran: We Will Continue Arming Terrorists in Judea and Samaria

Iran plans to continue its efforts to “destroy the Zionist entity” – and that includes arming terrorists in Judea and Samaria. “The arming policy of the West Bank is one of the policies of Iran and we will use all our capabilities in this way,” said Iranian Defense Minister Hossein Dehghan. Dehghan made the comments at a memorial service for General Abu Ali Tabtabai, who along with Jihad Mughniyeh and a crew of Hezbollah terrorists, were eliminated in an Israel Air Force strike Monday. The vehicles in which the two were riding had left Lebanon a few hours earlier, Lebanese sources said. The purpose of the tour, the sources said, was to allow Tabtabai to review the situation on the border with the purpose of developing new attacks on Israel. Commenting on the attack, Deghan said “The Zionist attack will not be passed over,” and that Iran would take the “appropriate action” when it wished to. Tensions remained high in northern Israel in the aftermath of the elimination of Mughniyeh, said to be Hezbollah’s “commander of the Golan Heights area,” and Iranian General Tabtabai.

It is a cornerstone in our search for peace.” Others who also signed the agreement were Deng Alor Kuol, a representative of former detainees and Tanzanian President Jakaya Kikwete, whose government helped mediate the talks.

Headline:   Gunmen kill security chief in Sirte, Libya

Fighters for one of the factions battling for control of Libya seized the Benghazi branch of the country’s central bank on Thursday, threatening to set off an armed scramble for the bank’s vast stores of money and gold, and cripple one of the last functioning institutions in the country. The central bank is the repository for Libya’s oil revenue and holds nearly $100 billion in foreign currency reserves. It is the great prize at the center of the armed struggles that have raged here since the overthrow of Col. Muammar el-Qaddafi in 2011. The taking of the Benghazi branch by forces loyal to General Hifter raised fears that the rival militias in Tripoli might seek to seize the bank’s assets there. A group of fighters loyal to the general invaded the bank’s building in Benghazi, which was near the front lines of a continuing fight with local Islamist militias. The attackers beat back the bank guards and the Islamists and took control of the bank premises. But they posted video images online that appeared intended to show that they had not broken into the vaults, at least not yet. “We are the youth of the naval base, and we are here to guard the bank,” a fighter in a camouflage uniform is heard to say in a video, as he leads the camera on a tour of the bank’s interior and its flooded basement. Gunfire is audible in the background, apparently coming from the streets outside. News of the seizure in Benghazi prompted a sharp fall in the value of the Libyan currency, which was trading at 2.0 dinars to the American dollar, down from 1.8 before.

Erdogan, who was in the Ethiopian capital Addis Ababa on the first leg of an African tour when the bomb went off, appeared unfazed and said that whoever carried out the attack was not acting in the name of Islam. “There has been a terrorist attack today in Somalia. What is this attack carried out for? If they are doing it in the name of Islam, there is no such thing in Islam,” he said at Addis Ababa University, where he was receiving an honorary degree. Turkish Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoglu, speaking at the World Economic Forum in Davos, said an investigation was under way to see if the Turkish delegation was deliberately targeted.

Yemeni President Abed Rabbo Mansour Hadi has resigned under pressure from Shiite rebels who seized the capital in September and have confined the embattled leader to his home for the past two days. Presidential officials said Hadi resigned after being pressured to make concessions to the rebels, known as Houthis. He had earlier pledged political concessions in return for the rebels withdrawing from his house and the nearby presidential palace, but Houthi fighters remained deployed around both buildings throughout the day. Military officials close to the president, who like the other officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to brief reporters, said Hadi resigned after the Houthis pressured him to give a televised speech to calm the streets. State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki said Thursday that the U.S. is assessing and seeking confirmation of the report. “We are seeking a peaceful transition,” she said. The Yemeni government also submitted its resignation Thursday.

Headline: Open-ended European QE starts ‘with a bang’

European Central Bank (ECB) President Mario Draghi announced the launch of an open-ended, expanded monthly 60 billion euro ($70 billion) private and public bond-buying program on Thursday. The long-anticipated introduction of euro zone government bond purchases, which could amount to as much as a trillion euros, will mean the ECB will join the U.S. Federal Reserve, Bank of England and Bank of Japan in launching a quantitative easing (QE) scheme. The program will be open-ended, lasting until at least 2016, Draghi told reporters at his regular media conference on Thursday, and will start in March this year. The hope is that it will boost the region’s painfully low inflation rate, which came in at an annual minus 0.2 percent in December. Explaining the ECB’s decision, Draghi said: “Inflation dynamics have continued to be weaker than expected. While the sharp fall in oil prices over recent months remains the dominant factor driving current headline inflation, the potential for second-round effects on wage and price-setting has increased and could adversely affect medium-term price developments.” Meanwhile Denmark, whose currency is pegged to the euro, was forced to issue its second rate cut in a week in a bid to defend the krone. The Danish central bank trimmed its deposit rate from minus 0.2 percent to minus 0.35 percent.

Not “unambiguously good” as Shale states see initial jobless claims spiking. Overall initial jobless claims missed expectations for the 4th week in a row, holding above 300k for the 3d week in a row (for the first time since July). At 307k, this week’s print is below last week’s but well above the 300k expectation.

Oil prices fell in Asia on Thursday after a slight gain Wednesday, with West Texas Intermediate for March delivery down to $47.49, and Brent at $48.93, according to AFP report. Dealers await a much-anticipated European Central Bank (ECB) policy meeting and the release of the latest US supply report later on Thursday. Expectations are high that the Thursday meeting of the ECB will see it unveil an aggressive asset purchase, or quantitative easing (QE) program to kickstart the Eurozone economy, analysts told AFP. Meanwhile the euro struggled against the dollar in Asia on Thursday. The single European currency fetched $1.1599 and 137.02 yen in Tokyo afternoon trade, compared with $1.1607 and 136.85 yen in New York late Wednesday. “If the ECB decides to move ahead with their QE program, the euro will weaken. The effects of a weaker euro will trickle down to crude oil as it makes it more expensive for European countries to purchase,” AFP quotes Daniel Ang, an investment analyst at Phillip Futures in Singapore, as saying in a commentary. Gold prices, meanwhile, have risen above $1,300 an ounce for the first time since August 2014. Worries that stem from concerns that the ECB might come up with stimulus measures which fall short of market expectations have fuelled a flight to gold, which is considered a safe haven.

Headline:   Russian Food Price Inflation Reaches Up to 150% — Prosecutor

Russia’s Prosecutor General’s Office has launched a wave of checks on food prices at major supermarkets across the country, as racing inflation stokes fears that the government will impose price controls. A four-day sweep that began on Tuesday has already discovered price rises of 10 to 150 percent on basic foodstuffs, including meat, fish, milk and potatoes, the agency’s spokeswoman Marina Gridneva told journalists on Wednesday, news agency TASS reported. Gridneva said officials would scrutinize retailers’ pricing policies and act against unjustified markups. Inspectors descended on tens of stores across European Russia operated by retail chains including Auchan, Lenta, X5 Group and Dixy, company representatives told the Vedomosti newspaper. Some retailers said that the inspectors were armed with a letter from the prosecutor authorizing the checks. Food price inflation in Russia raced past 15 percent last year, driven by a sharp devaluation of the ruble currency and bans imposed on a range of European food imports in response to Western sanctions. Inflation is expected to accelerate even more this year. Russian law gives the government the right to impose price controls if the cost of “socially significant” products rises by more than 30 percent over a 30-day period.

Headline:      Bill Gates Pushes Cashless Society

Bill Gates is now promoting “digital currency” in third-world countries, which will make the poor even more dependent on central banks while also turning them into guinea pigs for the development of a “cashless society” in the U.S. and Europe. Gates outlined his plan for a cashless society in a letter published Thursday in which he proposed the poor have better access to mobile phones so they can store their financial assets digitally instead of keeping hard currency at home. “The key to this will be mobile phones,” he wrote. “Already, in the developing countries with the right regulatory framework, people are storing money digitally on their phones and using their phones to make purchases, as if they were debit cards.” “By 2030, two billion people who don’t have a bank account today will be storing money and making payment with their phones.” But this will only enslave the poor into an electronic monetary system they don’t control, allowing central banks and the government unparalleled ability to confiscate money at will through taxes and “bail-ins.” For example, after Cyprus’s largest bank was sunk from exposure to debt-crippled Greece, the Cypriot government looted people’s bank accounts in 2013 as part of a “bail-in” program with the International Monetary Fund and the European Central Bank. “If you can do this once, you can do it again,” financial analyst Lars Seier Christensen wrote, who called the “bail-in” full-blown socialism. “If you can confiscate 10% of a bank customer’s money, you can confiscate 25, 50 or even 100%.” A third-world government wouldn’t even need to wait for an economic crisis to loot digital bank accounts, however, with the cashless scheme Gates proposes, officials could simply impose a tax and confiscate money automatically. And there’s no reason to believe this scheme will only be limited to the third-world; the United Kingdom has already tested digital-only payments earlier this year.

NOTE FROM FRANK 2Yesterday I put up a video telling you of a need for Pastor Fiaz and his wife who I support to do ministry work in Pakistan which includes giving free medical care, food, bibles, and my prophecy book. Pastor Fiaz and his wife were robbed by Muslims as they were doing ministry work. God was good in that no harm came to them but they lost just about everything that was with them. My heart was broken yesterday for many reasons and the news about Fiaz only added to my burden. However, after I put up the video which is below I received a note from Shawn Svacha at Ascent Ministries. Jesus has blessed me with by answering my prayers for Fiaz and his wife as my Brothers and Sisters in the Lord who watched my video and, then contacted Ascent Ministries to help them get back on their feet.  As you will see from Shawn’s note to me $ 1,300 was given so far to help Fiaz.  I want to take this time and thank everyone who gave! I love you all.

Our Lord Jesus has again opened the door for me to keep spreading His work He gave me to do via my prophecy book The Last Chronicles of Planet Earth.  For the past 4 years God has shown me the importance of getting His teachings about the last days to as many people as I can in Africa. Recently I had a leader of a women’s ministry in Kenya asked me if she could be a partner with me so she could take my work out to the churches she has been teaching in.  As you can see from the pictures below I just sent her a book of my books that will fall into her hands and then she will pick other women leaders to use the books in home fellowships. In the mean time Ascent Ministries is working with me to get Bibles to Sister Ruth in Kenya.  I am truly grateful to Christ to be blessed to have a part in His work to lead as many as He wills to His salvation.

Headline:   Israeli tanks take up positions along Lebanon border

In the aftermath of an alleged Israeli strike Sunday on the Syrian side of the Golan Heights, the IDF reportedly deployed a number of Iron Dome air defense batteries to the North on Monday evening, according to foreign media. Sky News Arabic reported that the anti-rocket batteries had been maneuvered in case of further escalation on the border with Syria and Lebanon. According to Hezbollah, which is active on the side of President Bashar Assad in the Syrian civil war, an Israeli helicopter fired two missiles Sunday at a military convoy in the Syrian town of Quneitra, not far from the Israeli border in the Golan Heights. Six Hezbollah operatives and six Iranian soldiers were reported killed in the hit. The killings raised the possibility of a retaliatory attack, with a senior Iranian official suggesting that Israel would be hit at “the right time and right place.” An Israeli defense official told Reuters an escalation was possible.

Headline:   Iran and Hezbollah are planning ‘imminent’ joint invasion of Israel’s northern Galilee region according to ‘high level intelligence’

Senior Iranian and Hezbollah figures killed in an airstrike in Syria this weekend were likely planning an ‘imminent’ attack on Israel, security sources have claimed. Six Iranian army chiefs died alongside five Hezbollah militants after an Israeli helicopter fired rockets at a convoy in the Golan Heights region on Sunday. Today Major General Eyal Ben Reuven, a former deputy head in the Israeli Defense Forces, accused the senior military figures of meeting to plot an attack on Israel. He added that the commanders’ decision to meet in Syria could mean that a ‘high-level’ and ‘sophisticated’ attack on Israel’s northern border is ‘imminent’. Research group The Israel Project came to a similar conclusion, saying that the presence of Tabatabai ‘probably indicates operations aimed at overrunning Israeli border towns.’ The warnings come just a week after Hassan Nasrallah, leader of Lebanon’s Hezbollah, warned that the group ‘is ready and prepared for a confrontation in the Galilee and beyond the Galilee.’ Iran has also promised a ‘crushing response’ to the weekend strike, without laying out exactly what action will be taken. General Mohammad Ali Jafari, head of Iran’s Revolutionary Guards, said: ‘These martyrdoms proved the need to stick with jihad. The Zionists must await ruinous thunderbolts. ‘The Revolutionary Guards will fight to the end of the Zionist regime… We will not rest easy until this epitome of vice is totally deleted from the region’s geopolitics.’ Israeli troops have been marshalled along the country’s northern border, while an Iron Dome missile launcher has been deployed to destroy any incoming rockets. Senior Iranian politicians are said to be incensed at the death of Allahdadi, which they confirmed yesterday, saying he had been ‘martyred’ in the name of his country.

Headline:   Hamas threatens Palestinian Authority with Gaza takeover

Hamas has warned that it could end reconciliation with the rival Fatah movement and formally regain the Gaza Strip from the Palestinian Authority. The Islamic movement has raised the prospect that Hamas would again expel the PA and restore control over the Gaza Strip. In an analysis, Hamas warned that it could not continue to oversee the chaos and economic decline in the strip. “All of these instructions prove that Hamas is a tough situation, and has to choose one among these five scenarios,” the Hamas daily Al Risala said. In an analysis on Jan. 16, Hamas said it could be “compelled to take a serious turn” to end the deadlock in the Gaza Strip. The analysis said Hamas was frustrated by the PA’s failure to launch reconstruction in wake of the 50-day with Israel in mid-2014. “The first scenario is built on the assumption that Hamas has to take control over the Gaza Strip one more time,” the analysis said. “The hard part about it is that the international projects in Gaza will be stopped completely, the siege will become tougher, and the financial crisis will increase.” The analysis said the PA has demanded the unconditional abdication of Hamas from power as well as the disarming of its military. The analysis also raised the prospect that Hamas, after expelling the PA, would form a joint command with other political factions in the Gaza Strip. Hamas also ruled out a long-term ceasefire with Israel to ensure the continuation of Islamic rule. Another scenario was a war against Israel, “which would lead to the collapse of the PA.” “Thus, Hamas will find itself in a better position to strengthen its place worldwide,” the analysis said.

Hussam Badran, a senior Hamas official, called on Palestinians to step up “organized and individual resistance” against Israel. He said that such attacks would confuse Israel and deter it from “pursuing its schemes against the Palestinians.” Bardan said that the perpetrator of the attack has brought happiness to the mothers whose sons were killed by Israel.
“The Palestinian people need to endorse jihad (holy war),” the Hamas official said. Another Hamas leader, Izzat al-Risheq, hailed the attack as heroic and brave, saying it was a “natural response to the crimes of the occupation and its terrorism against our people.”

Headline:    Boehner invites Netanyahu to address Congress on Iran, after Obama veto threat

House Speaker John Boehner announced Wednesday he is inviting Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to address Congress next month about the threat from Iran, in a sharp rebuke to President Obama. Such invitations typically are coordinated with the White House and State Department, but this one was not. The House speaker’s office said Netanyahu will be invited to speak Feb. 11 before a joint session of Congress. The invitation comes as lawmakers weigh legislation, supported by Republicans and some Democrats, to tee up more sanctions against Iran in case negotiations fail to curtail the country’s nuclear enrichment program. Obama vowed Tuesday during his State of the Union address to veto any such legislation. But Boehner signaled he wants Netanyahu to explain the stakes of the debate, as he pledged to press ahead with the legislation. “Prime Minister Netanyahu is a great friend of our country, and this invitation carries with it our unwavering commitment to the security and well-being of his people,” Boehner said in a statement. “In this time of challenge, I am asking the prime minister to address Congress on the grave threats radical Islam and Iran pose to our security and way of life.” Asked about the invite, White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest described it as a breach of typical protocol since the White House wasn’t involved. But he said the administration would reserve judgment until they speak with the Israelis.

Headline: Jordan has taken all measures to halt Israeli airport plan — gov’t

The government on Tuesday said that it has taken all measures to protest an Israeli plan to build an airport near the border north of Aqaba that is considered a threat to Jordan’s airspace security. During an “oversight” House session, Prime Minister Abdullah Ensour said that the government is aware of all the details regarding the Israeli scheme, adding that the Foreign Ministry, through Foreign Minister Nasser Judeh, has made all the necessary contacts with international parties and Israeli officials to assert that the airport’s location constitutes a violation to Jordan’s sovereignty, the Jordan News Agency, Petra, reported. The issue was raised after MP Rula Hroub said she was not convinced with the government’s reply to a query she had filed, insisting that Judeh take the responsibility for alleged failure to press for a halt to Israeli plans, suggesting a vote of no confidence against the minister. For lack of quorum, the Chamber failed to vote on the proposition — whether or not to hold a no-confidence session — and Lower House First Deputy Speaker Ahmad Safadi, who chaired the session, postponed the discussion till next Tuesday. For her part, Transport Minister Lina Shbeeb confirmed that the planned Israeli airport is a violation to the Kingdom’s sovereignty, outlining the steps authorities have taken to halt the plan, adding that the International Civil Aviation Organisation will hold a session to vote over the Jordanian complaint and establish whether the Israeli facility poses a violation to Jordan’s right and a danger to its airspace security. She did not elaborate on the timing of the vote. The airport, which Israel plans to build some 18 kilometres north of its port city of Eilat on the Gulf of Aqaba, would serve domestic and international flights and is projected to open in 2016, according to Israel’s Haaretz newspaper.

The speaker  however noted that the strike will not affect the dialogue between Hezbollah and the Future  Movement. “The talks have yielded direct results in that tensions have been eased and Lebanon’s internal scene has been fortified,” Berri stressed. He later sent a cable of condolence to Iranian Supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei over the death of Iranian General Allahdadi and other officials . Earlier, Berri had accused Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu of timing a deadly air raid on Hezbollah in the Golan Heights for political purposes linked to the upcoming elections.

Headline:  Hezbollah: Saudi Arabia Helped Israel Eliminate Senior Commander

Hezbollah’s official media outlet has claimed that Saudi Arabia helped Israel to eliminate a delegation of Hezbollah terrorists and Iranian soldiers on the Syrian side of the Golan Heights Monday. The comments came during a report on the Al Manar TV channel about the Israel Air Force’s elimination of Jihad Mughniyeh and Iranian field commander, General Mohammad Ali Allahdadi, earlier this week. Quoting Hezbollah sources, the report claimed that the Saudis had provided “direct information” to Israel about the movements of the two vehicles Mughniyeh, Allahdadi, and other Hezbollah terrorists were traveling in. According to Hezbollah, Saudi Arabia and other Sunni Gulf states are sending “regular and constant reports” to Israel about the movements of Hezbollah, Iran, and pro-regime Shia militias in Syria, as part of their campaign to keep Iran and its “allies” in check, the report said. Israel has been using this information to support groups fighting against the Shia militias.

Syria Headline:   New toll has 43 civilians killed in Syria regime raid on ISIS

Dozens of people have been killed in an air strike on a village held by Islamic State in eastern Syria, activists say. It was not clear who was behind the attack in Khansaa in Hassakeh province, which left between 30 and 80 dead.  The Local Co-ordination Committees and the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said Syrian military helicopters had dropped barrel bombs on a market. But some residents alleged that warplanes from the US-led coalition battling IS had fired missiles. Syrian government officials have so far not commented on the incident. Activists and witnesses concurred that the target of the strike in Khansaa, south of the Kurdish-held city of Qamishli, was a busy livestock market. Resident Khair al-Obeidi told the Reuters news agency that the Syrian air force had bombed a part of the market where cattle were traded. “There are at least 65 bodies – mostly charred bodies – that were counted by local medics in Tal Hamis,” he said, referring to a nearby town. The LCC, an opposition activist network, said at least 77 people had been killed in the attack and dozens wounded.

Syria Headline:   Car Bomb Explodes in Central Syria’s Homs, Killing 6 People

A car bomb exploded Wednesday in the central Syrian city of Homs, killing at least six people in a neighborhood frequently targeted by rebels because it is seen as a home of loyalists of the President Bashar Assad. The rigged vehicle exploded among residential buildings and shops in the Akrama neighborhood, an area dominated by Alawites, the same sect as Assad. The explosion killed mostly women and children, Homs Governor Talal Barrazi said. Barrazi said the blast killed at least six people and wounded 30. The Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said the blast killed 10 people, basing its figure from a network of activists on the ground. Conflicting death tolls are routine after such attacks. It was the third car bomb to target the street over the past year, Barrazi said. A twin suicide car bombing outside schools there in October that killed at least 32 people, including at least 10 children. Wednesday’s bombing came a week after Syrian rebels and government forces began observing a 10-day truce in the last rebel-held area of Homs.

Syria Headline:  The Islamic State Eyes Expansion in Damascus

The Islamic State of Iraq and al-Sham (ISIS) has begun to expand its presence in the Syrian central corridor which stretches from the Jordanian border through Damascus to the central cities of Homs and Hama. The “central corridor” is highly-contested key terrain for both the Syrian regime and its armed opposition, while ISIS presence has generally been limited in the area until recently. As one major exception, ISIS maintained a notable foothold in several opposition-held areas of Damascus in early 2014 before retreating due to pressure from local rebel groups. A small ISIS contingent, largely overlooked, endured quietly in the southern suburbs of Damascus throughout late 2014. Over the past two months, ISIS has once again escalated its military and public relations activities in this area, threatening to divert both regime and rebel resources away from active fronts in the Damascus area in order to contend with the ISIS threat. This development may provide an indicator of ISIS’s broader expansion plans in western Syria and the potential response of Syrian opposition fighters to this expansion.

Iraq Headline: Canada special forces clash with IS in Iraq

Canadian special forces exchanged gunfire with Islamic State fighters in Iraq in recent days, in the first confirmed ground battle between Western troops and IS, a senior officer said Monday. The Canadians came under mortar and machine gun fire while training Iraqi troops near front lines and shot back in what Canadian special forces commander Brigadier General Michael Rouleau described as self-defense, killing the IS fighters. Rouleau said the melee had taken place in the previous seven days and was “the first time we’ve taken fire and returned fire” in Iraq, where the extremists have overrun large areas. “My troops had completed a planning session with senior Iraqi leaders several kilometers behind the front lines,” Rouleau told a regular media briefing on the conflict. “When they moved forward to confirm the planning at the front lines in order to visualize what they had discussed over a map, they came under immediate and effective mortar and machine gun fire.” The general said the Canadians used sniper fire to “neutralize both threats” and there were no Canadian injuries.

The Islamic State (IS) militants in the Nineveh province of Iraq are transferring machinery from three oil refineries in Mosul to Syria. Kurdistan Democratic Party (KDP) official in Zumar Town Hassan Khalo told BasNews on Tuesday, that IS militants have abandoned Kask near Mosul. In addition to transferring refinery equipment from Kask, they have looted and destroyed a military base in the area. The machinery had previously been used in the Ain Zala oil fields, Khalo said. He went on to claim that the transfer operation is underway because Islamic State realise that these areas will soon be liberated. The militants have been suffering heavy losses in areas to the north and west of Mosul in recent weeks.

Kurdish security forces launched an offensive on ISIS in northern Iraq Wednesday, backed by U.S.-led airstrikes, and retook villages the jihadis used to launch attacks, officials said. The Kurdistan Regional Security Council said peshmerga forces, who began a “large-scale offensive” around 7:00 a.m. (0400 GMT), retook four areas and were working to clear more. The anti-ISIS coalition said it carried out six airstrikes in northern Iraq from Tuesday to Wednesday – three near the town of Tal Afar and three near the city of Mosul. It did not specify the exact locations targeted. The strikes in Nineveh province, where Kurdish troops launched the offensive, hit vehicles, ISIS units, buildings, heavy weapons and a bridge, a statement said.

rise of ISIS

Headline:  $200M ransom demand a sign of ISIS’ financial desperation, say experts

The Islamic State’s staggering $200 million demand for two Japanese hostages may reveal the terrorist group’s desperation to maintain control of its sprawling caliphate, especially amid falling black market oil revenues from seized wells and pipelines, terrorism experts said. An online video purportedly released by the group’s al-Furqan media arm and posted Tuesday on militant websites associated with the terror network presents a pricey ultimatum: Japan must pay $200 million within 72 hours or two Japanese hostages — a 42-year-old private military company operator and a 47-year-old freelance journalist — will be executed. The hostages, identified as Haruna Yukawa and Kenji Goto Jogo, appear in the video in orange jumpsuits like other hostages previously killed by Islamic State, which controls a third of Iraq and Syria. The militant who threatens them speaks in a British accent and may be the same jihadist who appeared in videos with western journalists who were beheaded. While Prime Minister Shinzo Abe vowed to save the men — saying, “Their lives are the top priority” — the Japanese government declined to say whether it would pay the ransom.

Headline:   Obama calls for new war powers to fight IS in State of the Union address

President Barack Obama on Tuesday called on the U.S. Congress to pass a new authorization of force against the ISIS militant group and to not rush into new sanctions on Iran over its disputed nuclear program. Obama said a U.S. led coalition of countries is stopping the advance of the group in Iraq and Syria. “I call on this Congress to show the world that we are united in this mission by passing a resolution to authorize the use of force against ISIL,” Obama said  in the annual State of the Union address, using another acronym for the militant group. He said the U.S. stands with terror victims from “Pakistan to Paris,” in the address that came came just days after attacks in Paris and weeks after attacks in Pakistan. Lawmakers waved yellow pencils to show their support for free speech when Obama mentioned the attacks earlier this month in Paris. The 17 people killed by Islamist militant gunmen included staff at French satirical newspaper Charlie Hebdo. Obama vowed: “We will continue to hunt down terrorists and dismantle their networks.” But he stressed U.S. officials ”reserve the right to act unilaterally, as we’ve done relentlessly since I took office, to take out terrorists who pose a direct threat to us and our allies.”

AMERICA IS IN GRAVE DANGER. CHRISTIANS MUST SPEAK OUT. 
When a nation murders 57 million babies and her leaders ignore the threat of Radical Islam, the State of the Union is not “strong.”
By Joel C. Rosenberg (@joelcrosenberg on Twitter)

index

(Costa Mesa, CA, January 21, 2015) — “America, for all that we have endured; for all the grit and hard work required to come back; for all the tasks that lie ahead, know this: The shadow of crisis has passed, and the State of the Union is strong.”
So began President Obama on Tuesday night in his 2015 State of the Union address to the nation and to a Joint Session of Congress.   He was not the first American President to declare the state of the union “strong.” But with all due respect, the President is wrong.   When a nation murders 57 million innocent babies, the state of the union is not strong.  When a nation overtaxes and overregulates and over burdens the economy and drives manufacturers and other businesses overseas and leaves 92 million Americans out of the labor force with no jobs and few prospects to get a good-paying job, the state of the union is not strong. When a nation heaps $18 trillion of national debt on the backs of her children and grandchildren, and keeps creating more and more national debt with no end in sight, the state of the union is not strong.  When a leader ignores the rising threat of Radical Islam — does not take decisive action to stop Iran from developing nuclear weapons, does not take decisive action to crush terrorist movements like al Qaeda and ISIS, and refuses to even mention “Islam” or “Islamism” or “Radical Islam” or even “al Qaeda” is his address to the nation — the state of the union is not strong.  My goal in saying this is not to score partisan political points. Rather, I am deeply concerned about the future of America, and Christian leaders and lay people must speak out.  Indeed, at this critical hour, let us consider Ezekiel 33:1-9 and how it applies to us and our times….

Headline:    Muslim scholars urge UN to outlaw ‘contempt’ of religions

A leading Islamic organization has called on the United Nations to make “contempt of religions” illegal and urged the West to protect Muslim communities following the attack on French magazine Charlie Hebdo. The Qatar-based International Union of Muslim Scholars, headed by influential preacher Yusuf Al-Qaradawi, appealed to Muslims to continue peaceful protests against images of the Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) but “not to resort to any violence.” The latest cartoon of the Prophet in Charlie Hebdo has angered many Muslims and triggered protests in Asia, Africa and the Middle East. In a statement released Tuesday, the union said there should be protection for “prophets” and urged Islamic countries to submit a draft law to the UN calling for defamation of religions to be outlawed. The union said the UN should then issue a “law criminalizing contempt of religions and the prophets and all the holy sites.” It also called for the West “to protect Muslim communities from attacks, whether they are citizens or residents or visitors.”

Russia and Iran are aligning more and more. In Tehran on Tuesday, Russian defense minister Sergei Shoigu and his Iranian counterpart, defense minister Hossein Dehghan, signed an agreement on “military cooperation” between the two countries, according to the state-controlled news agency TASS. “The signing of the intergovernmental agreement on military cooperation today became a significant step in the strengthening of these relations,” Shoigu said afterward. “The theoretical basis of cooperation in the military sphere has been established.” Shoigu noted that the thinking of Russia and Iran regarding the situation in the Middle East and Afghanistan was “closer or coincides.” He also noted that during the meeting both sides stressed the importance of coordinated efforts to combat international terrorism and drug trafficking. “We consider the reduction of tension in the region our responsibility and one of our top priorities,” Shoigu said. Cooperation between the two countries is clearest in Syria, where planes from Moscow and Tehran have consistently arrived in Damascus with weapons and supplies for the Assad regime.

Headline:    Russia has 9,000 troops in Ukraine, Poroshenko tells Davos forum

Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko accused Russia on Wednesday of sending 9,000 troops to back separatist rebels in the east of his country, and the IMF chief said she backed extra financial help for Kiev as the conflict inflicts severe economic damage. Moscow challenged Poroshenko to present facts to prove his allegations. However, he won support from NATO, which said the amount of heavy military equipment used by Russian troops in eastern Ukraine had increased, and the alliance repeated its call for the forces to withdraw. Speaking at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Poroshenko made one of Kiev’s boldest assertions yet that Russia’s military is directly involved in a conflict in which more than 4,800 people have died since last April. Russian troops were backed by a range of heavy weapons, including tanks, heavy artillery and armored vehicles, he said, adding: “If this is not aggression, what is aggression?” Poroshenko also called on Moscow to comply with a peace plan agreed in Minsk, Belarus, last September between Ukraine, Russia and pro-Russian separatist leaders to end the conflict. “The solution is very simple — stop supplying weapons … withdraw the troops and close the border,” he said. “If you want to discuss something different, it means you are not for peace, you are for war.”

An Israeli strike on Syria killed an Iranian general, Tehran confirmed Monday, as thousands of supporters of Lebanon’s Hezbollah gathered to bury one of six fighters killed in the same raid. The attack on Sunday near Quneitra on the Syrian-controlled side of the Golan Heights enraged Hezbollah’s supporters, but analysts said the group would avoid a major escalation with Israel. Iran’s elite Revolutionary Guards confirmed the death of one of their generals in a statement on their website. “General Mohammad Ali Allahdadi and a number of fighters and Islamic Resistance (Hezbollah) forces were attacked by the Zionist regime’s helicopters,” it said. “This brave general and some members of Hezbollah were martyred.” A source close to Hezbollah said six Iranians had been killed in the attack. Hezbollah told AFP that it was not the source of that toll.

Headline:  Israeli TV shows ‘Iranian missile’ that ‘can reach far beyond Europe’

Iran has built a 27-meter-long missile, capable of delivering a warhead “far beyond Europe,” and placed it on a launch pad at a site close to Tehran, an Israeli television report said Wednesday, showing what it said were the first satellite images of the missile ever seen in the West. It stressed that the missile could be used to launch spacecraft or satellites, but also to carry warheads. The Channel 2 news report showed satellite imagery documenting what it said was Iran’s “very rapid progress” on long-range missile manufacture. It showed one photograph of a site near Tehran, which it said the West had known about for two years, where Iran was working on engines for its long-range missiles. It then showed a satellite photograph of a second site, nearby, which featured a launch pad, with the 27-meter missile on it — an Iranian missile “never seen before” by the West. The missile is capable of taking a manned spacecraft or satellite into space, the TV report said. It is also capable of carrying a conventional or non-conventional warhead “far beyond Europe,” the report added.

Headline:   War News for Wednesday, January 21, 2015

Political turmoil continues as parliament rejects 7 cabinet nominees over dual citizenship. These include the nominees for Interior and Foreign Minister. Of course, given the decades of war and the period of Taliban rule, many educated Afghans have been expatriates. The nominees can be considered if they drop their second citizenship.

Human Rights Watch reports attacks and threats against journalists in Afghanistan are on the rise, with 2014 being the most violent year on record. “An already fragile media freedom has been jeopardised still further by intimidation and violence from both state and non-state figures, combined with a lack of government protection and waning international support.”

NYT reports that internal divisions in the Taliban have created an opening for IS. This has been noted before, but the NYT goes into more depth. It is not entirely clear whether IS just provides a new brand for some Taliban factions in Helmand, or if there really are strong ties with the organization in Syria and Iraq and an influx of foreigners.

India offers a workaround to the Pakistani blockade of Afghan exports.

And of course, the low-level war continues with 8 civilians dead in Ghazni, and 4 ANA soldiers killed in Kunduz along with a claimed 23 militants. (As always, no way to confirm these typically lopsided casualty reports.)

The South Sudan government on Wednesday accused rebels loyal to former vice president Riek Machar of attacking an oil facility in Unity state and setting it on fire. Information Minister Michael Makuei told reporters in Juba that rebel forces attacked the facility in Pariang County, in the north of Unity state, early in the week. “This area is an area where the production of so many [oil wells] is pooled and then directed towards the processing center in Heglig,” Makuei said. “They set this place on fire. It was not operational, of course, since that area is under the rebels, but nevertheless they decided to set it on fire. And the fire was burning up to yesterday but we don’t know how far it has gone by now,” he said. Makuei noted that government and rebel officials agreed last week at talks in Khartoum, mediated by China, to protect foreign personnel and economic installations, including oil facilities. He said the rebel attack on the oil installation in Unity state was a clear violation of that agreement. He said the rebels are not taking diplomatic initiatives to end South Sudan’s conflict seriously.

Headline:    Algeria Backtracks on Shale Gas Plans After Protests

Algeria’s prime minister announced Wednesday that plans to drill for the country’s abundant shale gas reserves have been scrapped. The announcement in a television interview came in the wake of a string of protests in the southern desert cities over environmental concerns near where drilling had already begun. “I confirm that the exploitation of shale gas is not the order of the day as for now Algeria has sufficient reserves of conventional energy to meet its needs,” Prime Minister Abdelmalek Sellal said. Despite high profile announcements in December that drilling had been authorized, he added that the initial drilling near the town of In Salah had just been “experimental.” He said the studies would continue for at least four more years to evaluate environmental and technical considerations. Soon after the drilling began, rare protests erupted in nearby In Salah and spread to other southern cities in Algeria, principally over fears the scarce water supply would be contaminated. “Between shale gas and water, the Algerian people will choose water and you think the Algerian state would be crazy enough to endanger the lives of its citizens?” he asked the interviewer. “We are a responsible government.” While Algeria derives more than 95 percent of its export earnings from oil and gas, its reserves are dwindling. The country has also been hard hit by the drop in oil prices by 50 percent in the last six months.

Headline:    Germany bans anti-Islamic rally over terror threat

German authorities have banned a rally by the anti-Islamic PEGIDA movement in the eastern city of Dresden today, saying they have “concrete” information that Islamist militants plan to attack the weekly demonstrations. The federal and state police agencies had received information that radical Islamists were planning to mix with demonstrators and attack one of the leaders of the rightwing Patriotic Europeans Against Islamisation of the West (PEGIDA), which has been organising the Dresden rallies since September. “In our assessment of the situation, we believe that there is a concrete threat of a terror attack,” Dresden’s police commissioner Dieter Kroll said yesterday. Informations received by the authorities indicated that one of the PEGIDA leaders and the people around him were being targeted for a terror attack, Kroll said in a statement. Kroll, however, said there were no specific information about the suspected terrorists or the nature of the attacks they were planning. The antiIslam rally in Dresden to protest against the “Islamisation of Germany” and the government’s asylum policy have been drawing a number of supporters in spite of appeals to the public by Chancellor Angela Merkel and other leaders to stay away from it. Police estimated that a record number of over 25,000 people attended the rally last Monday and its organisers were expecting a much bigger crowd today.

The tide of foreign volunteers crossing from Turkey into Syria to fight for Isis cannot be stopped, the Turkish Prime Minister has warned, with authorities unable to close the porous 510-mile border between the two countries. Ahmet Davutoglu, whose government has been accused of not doing enough to stop jihadi fighters from Britain and other countries crossing into Syria, told The Independent that Turkey could not put “soldiers everywhere on  the border”. He added: “In any case, there isn’t any state on the other side [of the  frontier].” Barack Obama says the US will go on the offensive in Iraq, providing air support to the Iraqi army when it attacks Isis forces. But Iraqi sources say the army, badly beaten by Isis last summer, is failing to reconstitute itself despite US efforts to retrain it. Even when supported by air strikes, it has made little headway and many of its combat units remain grossly under-strength. Isis is likely to continue to rule most of the territory it has seized in Iraq and Syria because its enemies are failing to unite and act decisively against it.

Headline:  Church backs Congo protesters, rights group says 42 killed

Democratic Republic of Congo’s powerful Catholic church on Wednesday backed ongoing protests against reforms that could extend President Joseph Kabila’s rule, denouncing a government crackdown which a rights group said had killed 42 people. As anti-government demonstrations in the capital Kinshasa entered their third day, the leader of Congo’s Catholics, Cardinal Laurent Mosengwo Pasinya, strongly criticized any attempt to postpone a presidential election due next year. Opposition supporters took to the streets on Monday to try to derail legislation that would require a national census before the vote. The opposition says the count would take years to organize in a poor nation the size of Western Europe, although the government denies this. With more than 40 percent of Congo’s 65 million people describing themselves as Catholic, the Church’s stance is likely to bolster popular resistance to the reform. Western powers including France and the United States have called for restraint and backed timely elections. The proposed change to the electoral code, approved by the lower house of parliament on Saturday, is expected to be voted on by the Senate on Thursday. “We disapprove of and condemn any revision of the electoral law that aims to … illegally postpone the holding of the elections in 2016,” Mosengwo Pasinya said, adding that some politicians and the security services were stoking the violence.

Headline:  Hundreds in Mali Protest UN Airstrikes

Hundreds of people protesting United Nations peacekeepers’ airstrikes on Tuareg rebels in Mali occupied the airport in the northern town of Kidal on Wednesday, forcing U.N. troops to abandon positions there. The protest in the rebel stronghold, mainly by women and children, comes a day after Dutch U.N. attack helicopters hit rebel forces in northern Mali during clashes over a separate town. It was the first such engagement by peacekeepers. The protesers “were violent. They threw stones, they burned some assets,” U.N. spokeswoman Radhia Achouri told Reuters. “We ordered our units guarding the airport to go inside the camp.” She estimated 200 to 300 people were involved in the protest. A Kidal resident at the airport said U.N. troops had shot in the air to try to disperse the crowds. But protests had continued, so the U.N. troops headed to their base in the town.

Headline:   Yemen leader expected to accept demands of Houthis who defeat his guards

Shia Houthi rebels in Yemen’s capital Sanaa have shelled the president’s home, shattering a ceasefire. President Abdrabbuh Mansour Hadi was reported to be inside the house but an official insisted he was safe. The UN Security Council condemned the attack and urged the rebels to respect the country’s legitimate leaders. But rebel leader Abdel Malek al-Houthi accused Yemen’s leaders of corruption and said the country was at a “defining” moment. The attack on Mr Hadi’s home came after the rebels entered the presidential palace in another part of the city following a brief clash with guards. Information Minister Nadia al-Sakkaf said on Twitter the president’s home had come under heavy shelling from armed forces positioned on rooftops nearby. An unnamed Yemeni government official told Reuters news agency: “The president is inside and he is fine.” Another official said two people had been killed in the fighting. Shelling died down after about half an hour, witnesses said.

Pakistani security forces have arrested a member of the Islamic State (IS or ISIS) jihadist group and two accomplices in eastern city of Lahore, officials said Wednesday. “A Pakistani Syrian man named Yousaf Al-Salafi and two of his accomplices have been arrested two days ago,” a senior security official told AFP. “During investigation he has confessed that he was setting up IS operations in Pakistan,” the official said on the condition of anonymity as he was not authorized to speak to media. Al-Salafi, believed to be about 40-years-old, entered Pakistan around five months ago via Turkey and worked with Hafiz Tayyab, an Imam at a local mosque, to recruit Pakistani men to fight in Syria – charging ISIS about $600 for each person they sent, the official said. The other accomplice was identified only as Doctor Fuwad from the industrial city of Sialkot who arranged visits for Al-Salafi to various madrassas in that city and neighboring Gujranwala, he added. During the past five months Al-Salafi also visited Pakistan’s northwestern tribal areas that border Afghanistan and met with Pakistani Taliban terrorists, the official said.

Nearly one million Muslims rallied in Grozny, Chechnya against the French magazine Charlie Hebdo. They’re more upset with the magazine than they are with the killer Kouachi brothers. Hundreds of thousands of people in the Russian Muslim region of Chechnya gathered in the regional capital Grozny on Monday to protest against caricatures of Islam’s Prophet Muhammad. Chechnya’s Interior Ministry said more than a million people attended the demonstration. Earlier Monday, the Russian Interior Ministry had estimated the number of attendees at more than 800,000. Before the rally, Chechen leader Ramzan Kadyrov urged people to attend to protest against what he called “the vulgarity, immorality, lack of culture, and the shamelessness of those who drew the caricatures of the Prophet.” Earlier this month, gunman attacked the offices of the French satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo in Paris, killing 12 people. The killings were said to be retaliation for the publication’s depictions of Muhammad. Some of the Chechen protesters Monday carried signs reading “Hands off the Prophet Muhammad,” Addressing the crowd, Kadyrov declared “If needed, we are ready to die to stop anyone who thinks that you can irresponsibly defile the name of the Prophet.”

The euro was at almost an 11-year low as the European Central Bank prepares for a meeting at which policy makers are forecast to adopt a sovereign-bond purchase program under the quantitative-easing strategy. The 19-nation shared currency pared gains against the dollar after Bloomberg reported that two central-bank officials said policy makers led by Mario Draghi will propose purchasing 50 billion euros ($58 billion) in assets per month through 2016. A gauge of the greenback approached the highest on record. Canada’s dollar plunged the most in three years after the central bank unexpectedly cut interest rates. The yen climbed for the first time in four days as the Bank of Japan refrained from more stimulus. “This market is very nervous,” Dean Popplewell, vice president of currency analysis and research at Oanda Corp., said by phone from Toronto. “The bullish expectation for Draghi to deliver is somewhat priced in. If the ECB wavers at all, these markets are going to severely punish the ECB.”

Headline:   Oil export losses to reach $300 billion in Middle East

Headline:    IMF Says Gulf States Set to Swing Into Deficit as Oil Falls

Losses from lower oil exports should sap up to $300 billion from economies in the Middle East and Central Asia this year, as countries in the region adjust to falling crude prices, the International Monetary Fund said on Wednesday. Economies that are particularly dependent on oil exports, including Qatar, Iraq, Libya and Saudi Arabia, will be hit hardest by the more than 50 percent decline in petroleum prices, the IMF said in an update to its outlook for the Middle East and Central Asia. Oil prices are now hovering near six-year lows amid expectations of an abundance of supply tied to unexpectedly high production of US shale crude. The IMF said, however, that falling crude prices will not translate immediately into major gains for oil importers in the Middle East and Central Asia, which have been hurt by the slowing growth prospects of key trading partners in the euro zone and Russia. The IMF this week cut its forecasts for global economic growth to 3.5 percent for 2015 compared with an October outlook of 3.8 percent, and significantly lowered projections for oil exporters Russia, Nigeria and Saudi Arabia. The IMF said nearly every exporting country in the Middle East and Central Asia is expected to run a fiscal deficit this year because of the oil price shock, which prompted the IMF to downgrade the region’s growth prospects by as much as 1 percentage point compared with its October forecasts, to 3.4 percent for 2015.

The International Monetary Fund is predicting Venezuela’s troubled economy will shrink by 7 percent in 2015, suffering the worst contraction in Latin America. It’s a dramatic downgrade from October, when the IMF said Venezuela’s economy would shrink by 1 percent. In a post published Wednesday, IMF Western Hemisphere Director Alejandro Werner says Venezuela will be clobbered by falling oil prices, which have declined by half in the last six months. Oil accounts for more than 95 percent of the South American country’s export earnings. Werner says that the Argentine economy will also shrink, but by less than 2 percent, and predicts that overall growth for Latin America and the Caribbean will hold steady at slightly more than 1 percent. Werner says the recession in Venezuela will lead to worsening shortages.

Headline:  Volcanic eruption in Tonga creates new island

A volcanic eruption in Tonga has created a new island — although one scientist said Wednesday it could soon disappear. The volcano has been erupting for a month in the ocean about 65 kilometers (40 miles) northwest of the capital, Nuku’alofa. Last week it disrupted international air travel to the Pacific archipelago for several days. New Zealand volcanologist Nico Fournier said he traveled by boat to within about a mile of the new island on Saturday to take a closer look. He said it’s made mainly of loose scoria and its dimensions are about 1.8 kilometers (1.1 miles) by 1.5 kilometers (0.9 miles), and that it rises about 100 meters (109 yards) above the sea. “It’s quite an exciting site, you get to see the birth of an island,” he said. “Visually it was quite spectacular, but there was no big sound coming with it, no boom. It was a bit eerie.” He said that once the volcano stops erupting, it will likely take the ocean no more than a few months to erode the island entirely. He said it would need to be made of lava or something more durable to survive. Fournier, who works for New Zealand agency GNS Science, said he was able to establish that the volcano was mainly belching steam into the atmosphere, and that the small amount of ash it was sending out was rising no more than about 2 kilometers (1.2 miles). That will come as a relief to airlines, as it is the ash that can be dangerous to planes. Fournier said the ocean around the island is likely fairly shallow, perhaps only about 100-200 meters (328-656 feet) deep. He said there is no name yet for the new island, and he has been told that any naming rights will fall to Tonga’s king.

                                                                                                            rap

As of late I have had people ask me about the rapture of the church. Before I give you a short section of when I believe the rapture of the church is going to take place let me say the following. As lovers of Christ Jesus it is our task to keep on the watch. You will read this command by Jesus Himself in the gospels where He tells us to keep on the watch. He wants us on the watch so the rapture doesn’t come upon us as a thief in the night.  For those who say the rapture of the church will not come until the half way point in the tribulation why would these people be concerned if they knew they still had at least three and a half years before they had to worry about missing the rapture since the tribulation has even started yet?

Most people who hold to the midtribulation rapture try to deny the belief in an imminent return of [Jesus]. While it has been attempted to disprove the doctrine of imminence, Scripture consistently teaches that the coming of [Jesus] could be at any time. Click the link to see these verses http://www.kingjamesbibleonline.org/Bible-Verses-About-Imminent-Coming/ .

The bottom line is this. We need to live our lives as if Jesus were going to come back today for His church, that means being on the watch now not waiting for some major prophecy sign to be seen before you begin to get ready for the rapture.  However, Jesus did leave us warning signs in prophecy to look for so that when we saw all these signs at once we would know for sure His second coming was very close at hand. Here in my ministry I am a watchmen for the Lord to help you see the things He warned us about concerning the last days. I will say this. Do not let your stand on the rapture hinder your walk between other Christians as we are suppose to be as Christ loving one another as Christ loves us. The rapture doctrine is not a doctrine of salvation but, it a very important part of prophecy for the last days.  Be ready!

I will explain why I believe the church will already be in heaven during the Great Tribulation. First of all, you should understand that I believe in the Bible, the rapture takes place in Revelation 4:1. “After this I looked, and, behold, a door was opened in heaven: and the first voice which I heard was as it were of a trumpet talking with me; which said, Come up hither, and I will shew thee things which must be hereafter.” The Greek words for “after these things” are meta tauta, meaning after the things of the church. You must understand that the book of Revelation is divided into three parts. Revelation 1:19 says, “Write the things which thou has seen, and the things which are, and the things which shall be hereafter.” John wrote the things he had seen, the things that were going on while he was alive, and the things that would take place once the church was raptured to heaven in the future. The church is removed from Earth in Revelation 4:1. It is very interesting that you will never hear anything about the church again until chapter 19 when you see it riding back to Earth with Jesus at the end of the seven year tribulation. The reason the church isn’t mentioned is because I believe it was taken from the wrath of God to come. Also take careful notice what Jesus says to each of the 7 churches He gives the messages to which is found in Revelation chapters 2 and 3. At the end of each message He says, “He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches” (Revelation 2:7a, 11a, 17a, 29, Revelation 3:6, 13, 22). After the church is raptured into heaven of which I believe is Revelation 4:1 where we see the tribulation is going on, Jesus now says, “If any man have an ear, let him hear” (Revelation 13:9). Unlike all the other times, this time Jesus left out  the word Spirit as in the phrase “hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches.”  Also take careful notice that Jesus used this same phrase 7 times in the gospels prior to the Holy Spirit descending on the believers in the upper room on Pentecost. All 7 times it appears as follows as in Mark 4:9. “And he said unto them, He that hath ears to hear, let him hear.” I do not think the lack of the word Spirit in the 7 verses is a coincidence! You can find these 7 verses in Matthew 11:15, Matthew 13:9, Mark 4:9, 23, Mark 7:16, Luke 8:8, and Luke 14:35. Here is the bottom line. Jesus did not say He that hath ears to hear, let him hear what the Spirit says in the gospels because He did not send the Holy Spirit to help them yet as He was still with them. However, once Christ left to go into heaven things changed.

The reason for the difference is the Holy Spirit was active in the church while the church was on the Earth, but now after Revelation 4:1 the Spirit has departed when the church was raptured to heaven. In Revelation chapter 13, the wrath of God is being poured out on an unbelieving world. Since the church is not appointed to wrath, as stated in Romans 5:9, and first Thessalonians 5:9 that is why the church has to be in heaven. In “the Revelation of Jesus Christ” which he was privileged to see, John tells of one scene of those who, before Christ’s second coming, had rejected the free offer of salvation through Christ yet realized that the time of the Antichrist had come; therefore, they had missed the opportunity to be part of the raptured church.  There are many reasons why I believe the Rapture will take place prior to the tribulation and you can read about them in my book.

The US Consulate in Jerusalem is training a force of 35 Palestinians from East Jerusalem to serve as armed guards, particularly for consular trips to the West Bank’s Area A, which is off-limits to Israelis, it was reported on Wednesday. The arrangement violates a 2011 agreement between Israel and the consulate, the Hebrew daily Yedioth Ahronoth stated, whereby only IDF combat veterans would be authorized to carry arms as consulate guards. “The consulate was authorized to keep roughly 100 handguns for security staff, on condition that they be either American diplomats or Israeli army veterans,” the paper’s Itamar Eichner wrote. Additionally, Israeli guards at the consulate alleged that the Palestinians were being trained with firearms in Jericho at a Palestinian Preventative Security base and in the United States.

The United Nations (UN) on Thursday demanded that Israel unlock millions of dollars in taxes it collected for the Palestinian Authority (PA) and froze as a penalty, in response to the PA applying to join the International Criminal Court (ICC) in breach of the Oslo Accords to sue Israel. A senior UN official claimed to the UN Security Council that the freeze of about $127 million imposed on January 3 was in violation of the Oslo Accords. He failed to mentioned that the ICC application was itself a breach, as were the numerous unilateral PA requests to join international treaties that accompanied it. “We call on Israel to immediately resume the transfer of tax revenues,” said UN Assistant Secretary-General Jens Anders Toyberg-Frandzen. The UN’s criticism joins the bandwagon after the US and European Union (EU) already slammed Israel’s move, with both parties remaining notably silent regarding the PA application to ICC that triggered the Israeli response.

The deputy speaker of the Gaza parliament, Ahmad Bahar, delivered a speech at the beginning of the session in which he warned of a possible “blowup” in Gaza as a result of, among other things, the delay in reconstruction the Palestinian Authority’s failure to pay monthly salaries to civil servants employed under the former Hamas government. “A blowup is at a distance of two-bows length or less if the international community does not take action to end the suffering of the people of Gaza,” he warned, according to Ma’an.

Headline:   Arab League to Push for New Palestinian U.N. Resolution

The Arab League said on Thursday it will seek to shore up international support for another attempt to obtain a U.N. resolution on ending Israel’s occupation of Palestinian lands. The decision at a gathering of Arab foreign ministers in Cairo came after Palestinian president Mahmud Abbas asked them for another chance following the UN Security Council’s rejection of his last bid in December. Those at the meeting gave several Arab countries the task of undertaking “the necessary communications and consultations to submit a new Arab proposal to the Security Council,” a statement said. After last month’s failed U.N. bid, the Palestinians were granted a request to join the International Criminal Court, in a move paving the way for them to pursue Israeli leaders for alleged war crimes.

Headline:   Iraq Donates $28 Million to the PA

Iraq on Wednesday donated $28 million to the Arab League as part of its contribution to support the Palestinian Authority (PA), an Iraqi official said, according to the Ma’an news agency. Iraq’s representative to the Arab League, Diya al-Dabbas, said that the payment highlights Iraq’s commitment to the “Palestinian cause.” He condemned Israel’s decision to freeze PA tax funds, a decision which came after the PA applied to join the International Criminal Court, and called on Arab countries to use their economic and financial weight to support the Palestinians. Arab League Secretary General Nabil al-Arabi applauded Iraq’s contribution to support the PA’s budget. Iraq’s donation to the PA comes a day after Saudi Arabia said it had provided $60 million in direct support for the PA budget. The PA has repeatedly asked for foreign donations, claiming it is on the verge of collapse due to a worsening financial crisis.

Headline:    Saudi Arabia Is Building A 600-Mile ‘Great Wall’ To Shield Itself From ISIS

When a raiding party from Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant attacked a Saudi border post last week, it was no mere hit on a desert outpost. The jihadists were launching an assault on the new, highest-profile effort by Saudi Arabia to insulate itself from the chaos engulfing its neighbours. The Saudis are building a 600-mile-long “Great Wall” — a combined fence and ditch — to separate the country from Iraq to the north. Plans for the 600-mile wall and ditch Saudi Arabia will build with Iraq in an effort to insulate itself from the chaos engulfing its neighbors. Much of the area on the Iraqi side is now controlled by Isil, which regards the ultimate capture of Saudi Arabia, home to the “Two Holy Mosques” of Mecca and Medina, as a key goal. The proposal had been discussed since 2006, at the height of the Iraqi civil war, but work began in September last year after Isil’s charge through much of the west and north of the country gave it a substantial land border with the Kingdom to the south. The border zone now includes five layers of fencing with watch towers, night-vision cameras, and radar cameras. Riyadh also sent an extra 30,000 troops to the area.

Headline: Militant leader urges jihad, or holy war, in Egypt

The purported leader of a militant group that has staged several small attacks over the past year in the Egyptian capital has urged holy war, or jihad, calling on the young to join the extremists’ fight. The call came in an hour-long interview with a man identified as Magd Eddin al-Masri, who claims to be the leader of Ajnad Misr, or “Egypt’s Soldiers,” a group that surfaced as part of a rising insurgency in Egypt following the ouster of President Mohammad Morsi in July 2013. The interview by the group’s media arm was posted on social networking sites Sunday. It was the first public appearance of Al-Masri, which is Arabic for “the Egyptian,” and a move apparently aimed at gaining more prominence in the group’s campaign of retribution for the government’s crackdown on Islamists. In the footage, Al-Masri claimed that Egypt is well suited for jihad to avenge the killings, torture and detentions of Islamists in the wake of the authorities’ crackdown on Islamists following Morsi’s ouster. The crackdown has killed hundreds and jailed thousands.

Syria Headline:     ISIS control of Syria reportedly expands since start of US-led airstrikes

The Islamic State terror group reportedly has increased the amount of territory they control in Syria as the U.S.-led bombing campaign approaches its four-month anniversary. The Wall Street Journal, citing U.S. government and  independent assessments, say that the Islamic State, commonly known as ISIS, has control of a large swath of northeastern Syria and is creeping toward key cities in the country’s west, including Aleppo, a center of the uprising against Syrian President Bashar Assad. The Journal reports that ISIS’ expansion of control can partially be attributed to the U.S. focus on Iraq, where it is working closely with Baghdad to roll back gains made by ISIS last summer. However, as a result, ISIS fighters are flowing into Syria unchecked. In other cases, Syrian rebel groups who once fought against ISIS have been convinced to join their side. The paper also reports that nearly three-quarters of the U.S.-led airstrikes in Syria since Sept. 22 have concentrated on the fight for Kobani, a town near the border with Turkey that has seen fierce fighting between ISIS and Kurds. The Associated Press reported Wednesday that the airstrikes had helped Kurdish forces gain an estimated 80 percent of the town, in what would be the first major defeat for ISIS since their current campaign of terror began. However, experts say whatever good the strikes have done in Kobani, they have not prevented ISIS from consolidating their control elsewhere, a truth that some U.S. officials readily acknowledge.

Syria Headline:    U.N. envoy: ISIS ‘only 20 miles away from Aleppo’

The Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) is “only 20 miles away” from Syria’s second biggest city of Aleppo, the U.N. peace envoy for Syria Staffan de Mistura said on Thursday. “I am just determined to raise the fact that Aleppo cannot be abandoned,” De Mistura said, vowing to press on with efforts for a truce in between government and opposition forces in the city. “We are engaged in intense discussions with the government… and the opposition regarding the freeze,” he said. De Mistura, a Swedish-Italian diplomat appointed as U.N. envoy on Syria in July, said Aleppo was a “symbolic microcosm of all of Syria.” This was so “because it has the highest number of displaced people, because it has seen two years of suffering,” he added. De Mistura said the international community had to make sure that the Syrian conflict did not go in a “backburner,” adding: “Movement towards some kind of political solution should take place this year.”

Iraq Headline:   France sends Charles de Gaulle aircraft carrier for anti-ISIS op in Iraq

French President Francois Hollande has announced that the Charles de Gaulle aircraft carrier is ready for use in military operations against Islamic State in Iraq. The warship is to work in cooperation with coalition forces combatting the militants. In a speech onboard the aircraft carrier on Wednesday, Hollande told military personnel that that the Charlie Hebdo massacre carried out by Islamic extremists last week “justifies the presence of our aircraft carrier.” Thanks to the Charles de Gaulle we will have intelligence … we may also conduct operations in Iraq,” Hollande said. The nuclear-powered aircraft carrier is the flagship of the French fleet, and is currently cruising off France’s southern coast in the Mediterranean. The carrier is the largest Western European warship currently in commission, and is France’s only nuclear-powered surface vessel. The ship can carry 20 to 25 aircraft, including Super Etendard strike fighter jets, Rafale M multirole fighter jets and Aster missiles. The ship’s deployment, during which it will provide airstrikes against Islamic State militants, is expected to last until May at the earliest.

Iraq Headline: ISIL launches fierce attacks across Iraq

Fighters from the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) have launched a series of attacks in Iraq’s restive region, killing at least 23 people, including several Kurdish Peshmerga soldiers. Sources told Al Jazeera that at least 16 Peshmerga soldiers were killed on Thursday trying to repel an ISIL attack on the Mosul Dam in Nineveh province. The dam, located on the Tigris river, provides electricity to northwestern province of Anbar, which is under ISIL’s control. In another attack, seven fighters from militias fighting against ISIL in Diyala Province were killed in the town of al- Mansuriya. Meanwhile, in the flashpoint town of Sinjar, Peshemerga forces, backed by US-led coalition warplanes, stopped an attack on the town’s southwestern side. The ISIL fighters have since mostly been driven out of the area. The capture of Sinjar by ISIL fighters and the plight of the mostly Yazidi population there was cited by President Barack Obama as one of the reasons for the US military intervention in Iraq. US-led forces launched 12 air strikes against the group’s positions overnight on Wednesday, targeting tactical units, buildings and equipment used by the group, the Combined Joint Task Force said in a statement. Despite nearly 5,000 bombs being dropped against the armed group, General John Allen, the US envoy for the global coalition to counter ISIL, said more time and training was needed to retake ISIL’s stronghold of Mosul. “We expect we will see the effectiveness of this force improve over time and we believe that they will be able to take back the population centres and municipalities,” Allen said.

Headline:  Duke University’s decision to sound Muslim call to prayer riles some

The Muslim call to prayer will sound from a bell tower at North Carolina’s Duke University — but not everyone is considering the chant music to the ear. Starting Friday, the Duke Muslim Students Association will chant the call, or adhan, from the Duke Chapel bell tower. The adhan signals the beginning of the weekly prayer service. It’s ubiquitous in Muslim countries the world over; not so in the Carolina piedmont. The call will last three minutes and will be only “moderately amplified,” the school said. Duke, which got its start in the late 19th century with help from the Methodist church, says the move “represents a larger commitment to religious pluralism that is at the heart of Duke’s mission.” “It connects the university to national trends in religious accommodation,” said Christy Lohr Sapp, the chapel’s associate dean for religious life. Various Christian denominations hold prayer and worship services in the chapel. The school also has spaces dedicated spaces on campus for various faiths, including Jews, Hindus and Buddhists. “Just as the bells announce chapel worship in the building on Sundays, the adhan announces Muslim prayers on Fridays,” the chapel said.

Headline:   The Islamic State Is Starting A TV Channel

The Islamic State is about to launch its first TV channel, having hitherto relied on social media to spread its violent propaganda. A “teaser” for the new channel was just published on a popular ISIS forum with a link to the page that will host the 24/7 online propaganda channel. As you might expect, it won’t be showing any reruns of Friends. The new channel is set to broadcast only propaganda. The expected lineup will include a new video series by the British ISIS captive John Cantlie and a daily news show, plus repeats of his back catalogue. It will also broadcast a program called “Time to Recruit,” which is likely to discuss the recruitment of new jihadis, every Wednesday at 5 p.m., Islamic State Time (GMT+3). ISIS already runs the FM radio station Al-Bayan, which broadcasts propaganda from the city of Mosul in northern Iraq. A TV station is the latest expansion in the terrorist group’s growing propaganda efforts. ISIS has been actively seeking media and technology recruits of late to bolster production.

Headline:  Fierce battle for airport breaks out in Ukraine’s east

Heavy artillery and shelling rocked Ukraine’s east on Thursday as the army and pro-Russian rebels waged a fierce battle for a key airport, forcing monitors to flee and threatening all-out conflict. The fighting came as Ukraine made renewed accusations of a Russian military build up on its border, and approved fresh troop mobilisations in the midst of a wave of violence over recent days. A national day of mourning was also held for 13 people killed on Tuesday when a rocket exploded near a commuter bus travelling towards the Ukrainian city of Donetsk, the worst loss of civilian life since a September truce that only partially halted the violence. The upsurge in fighting that has rocked eastern Ukraine follows the postponement of a planned peace summit between President Petro Poroshenko and the leaders of Russia, Germany and France. Heavy fighting shook the area around the airport in the rebel bastion of Donetsk, while pro-Kremlin insurgents had earlier been accused of unleashing a massive rocket assault. The rebels claimed to have been on the verge of taking control of the airport, but there was no independent confirmation. Ukraine’s military said in a statement on Thursday night that it was still defending the airport under heavy attack by the rebels. An AFP journalist in Vodiane, a few miles west of the airport and where Ukrainian forces transport their dead and wounded, saw one soldier dead and five wounded. Ukraine confirmed two soldiers had been killed.

Headline: Kerry Supports Syrian Peace Talks in Russia

Secretary of State John Kerry voiced support for Russia’s attempt to convene peace talks in Moscow between representatives of the Syrian government and the opposition, even though some leading opposition figures have said they do not plan to attend. “We hope that the Russian efforts could be helpful,” Mr. Kerry said on Wednesday at the start of a meeting here with Staffan de Mistura, the United Nations envoy for the crisis in Syria. Mr. Kerry also praised Mr. de Mistura’s attempt to broker local cease-fires in Syria, starting with the contested city of Aleppo, saying he hoped it could “have effect.” Mr. Kerry’s support for the Russian and United Nations initiatives comes as the American-led push to negotiate a solution to the bloody Syria conflict, the so-called Geneva process, has faltered. The United States has not withdrawn its public insistence that no enduring political settlement is possible as long as President Bashar al-Assad is in power. Nevertheless, Mr. de Mistura’s step-by-step strategy to de-escalate the civil war is attracting growing interest among some Obama administration officials. Mr. Kerry said before the failed peace talks in Geneva last year that the United States’ goal was a transitional government in Syria that did not include Mr. Assad. But he refrained from making such an explicit demand on Wednesday, urging instead that Syria’s leaders rethink their course. “It is time for President Assad, the Assad regime, to put their people first and to think about the consequences of their actions, which are attracting more and more terrorists to Syria, basically because of their efforts to remove Assad,” Mr. Kerry said. Russia, which has backed the Syrian government politically and by sending arms, is planning to convene talks among the warring Syrian factions on Jan. 26 in Moscow.

Iranian President Hassan Rouhani announced on Tuesday plans to construct two new nuclear power plants to increase the country’s nuclear-generated power output, Iran’s state-run Fars News Agency reported. “Construction of two new power plants will increase the capacity of Bushehr province’s power generation to 2,000 megawatts,” Rouhani said in a meeting with investors. Earlier on Tuesday, Rouhani visited the Bushehr nuclear power plant and claimed the country is pursuing nuclear energy for peaceful purposes. The United States, Israel and many of the world’s powers have long suspected that Iran is, in fact, pursuing a clandestine nuclear weapons program. Rouhani asserted, “The Bushehr Nuclear Power Plant is an example showing that Iran is only looking for a civilian use of the nuclear energy and for power generation.” However, US-based advocacy group The Israel Project said the Iranians will use their new nuclear infrastructure to boost to their “leverage” in negotiations over the country’s nuclear program with the West. “The more they have, the more they have to trade away,” the group said on Wednesday, referring to the November, 2013 interim agreement between Iran and world powers.

The SPLA lost 18 in action and 26 wounded.” He also blamed Machar’s rebels for wounding two civilians and a soldier in separate attacks in Bentiu, capital of Unity state.

German authorities are tracking an Islamic State terror cell suspected of having 50 members.

German authorities are concentrating their investigation on the northern city of Wolfsburg, the newspaper reported. News of the terror investigation comes on the same day that German Chancellor Angela Merkel unveiled a nine-point plan for securing the country from the kind of terrorist attacks recently perpetrated in Paris.

A Kurdish state would pose a danger to the region, Turkish Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoglu said in an interview with a German newspaper. “A Kurdish independent state will endanger the region and turn it into chaos,” he told the Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung daily. “Changing frontiers will bring about fighting between the neighboring countries, that is why it is better the frontiers remain as they are,” he added, in response to a question about Turkish fears of a Kurdish state in the Middle East. Turkey has strong economic and political ties with its neighboring autonomous Kurdistan Region, but it has remained opposed to Erbil’s aspirations of independence from Iraq. Responding to reports accusing Turkey of helping the Islamic State (ISIS) and other terrorist organizations, Davutoglu reiterated Ankara’s line about removing Bashar al-Assad from power in Syria. “If the international community had taken our advice into consideration or had found an alternative to the Syrian regime there would have been no crimes and atrocities against humanity,” he told the daily. Turkey has always denied accusations of allowing Islamic militants to cross into Syria for jihad. Ankara has acknowledged, however, that Hayat Boumedienne, a suspect wanted in connection with last week’s deadly attacks in Paris, had escaped across the Turkish border into Syria.

U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry says he and his British counterpart are discussing a special initiative to deal with the Boko Haram extremist group in Nigeria and its neighbors. Speaking in the Bulgarian capital on Thursday, Kerry said Boko Haram is “without question one of the most evil and threatening terrorist entities on the planet.” He says their recent attacks in Nigeria’s north is a “crime against humanity” and must be addressed. Kerry said that during breakfast in Sofia with British Foreign Secretary Philip Hammond, they had talked about setting up a new initiative to address Boko Haram and the situation in Nigeria. He did not elaborate on the idea. The rights group Amnesty International said Thursday that the recent attacks by the radical Islamist group may have killed many more people than the Nigerian government says. The government says about 150 people were killed in attacks that started in Baga in the north-east on January 3, downplaying reports that put the death toll at 2,000. However, satellite images published by Amnesty show that the neighboring towns of Baga or Doron Baga were largely destroyed, with more than 3,700 structures damaged or burned down. “These detailed images show devastation of catastrophic proportions in two towns,” with Doron Baga almost completely wiped off the map, said Daniel Eyre, a Nigeria researcher with Amnesty.

Al-Qaeda in Yemen claimed responsibility for the attack on French satirical newspaper Charlie Hebdo, saying it was ordered by the Islamist militant group’s leadership for insulting Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him), according to a video posted on YouTube. “As for the blessed Battle of Paris, we, the Organization of Al-Qaeda al Jihad in the Arabian Peninsula, claim responsibility for this operation as vengeance for the Messenger of God,” said Nasser bin Ali Al-Ansi, a leader of the Yemeni branch of Al-Qaeda (AQAP) in the recording. Gunmen killed a total of 17 people in three days of violence that began when they opened fire at Charlie Hebdo in revenge for its past publication of satirical images of the Prophet. Ansi, the main ideologue for AQAP, said the “one who chose the target, laid the plan and financed the operation is the leadership of the organization,” without naming an individual. He added without elaborating that the strike was carried out in “implementation” of the order of overall Al-Qaeda leader Ayman Al-Zawahri, who has called for strikes by Muslims in the West using any means they can find.

Headline:    Russia Just Pulled Itself Out Of The Petrodollar

Back in November, before most grasped just how serious the collapse in crude was (and would become, as well as its massive implications), we wrote “How The Petrodollar Quietly Died, And Nobody Noticed“, because for the first time in almost two decades, energy-exporting countries would pull their “petrodollars” out of world markets in 2015. This empirical death of Petrodollar followed years of windfalls for oil exporters such as Russia, Angola, Saudi Arabia and Nigeria. Much of that money found its way into financial markets, helping to boost asset prices and keep the cost of borrowing down, through so-called petrodollar recycling. We added that in 2014 “the oil producers will effectively import capital amounting to $7.6 billion. By comparison, they exported $60 billion in 2013 and $248 billion in 2012, according to the following graphic based on BNP Paribas calculations.” The problem was compounded by its own positive feedback loop: as the last few weeks vividly demonstrated, plunging oil would lead to a further liquidation in foreign  reserves for the oil exporters who rushed to preserve their currencies, leading to even greater drops in oil as the viable producers rushed to pump out as much crude out of the ground as possible in a scramble to put the weakest producers out of business, and to crush marginal production. Call it Game Theory gone mad and on steroids. Ironically, when the price of crude started its self-reinforcing plunge, such a death would happen whether the petrodollar participants wanted it, or, as the case may be, were dragged into the abattoir kicking and screaming. It is the latter that seems to have taken place with the one country that many though initially would do everything in its power to have an amicable departure from the Petrodollar and yet whose divorce from the USD has quickly become a very messy affair, with lots of screaming and the occasional artillery shell. As Bloomberg reports Russia “may unseal its $88 billion Reserve Fund and convert some of its foreign-currency holdings into rubles, the latest government effort to prop up an economy veering into its worst slump since 2009.” These are dollars which Russia would have otherwise recycled into US denominated assets. Instead, Russia will purchase even more Rubles and use the proceeds for FX and economic stabilization purposes. “Together with the central bank, we are selling a part of our foreign-currency reserves,” Finance Minister Anton Siluanov said in Moscow today. “We’ll get rubles and place them in deposits for banks, giving liquidity to the economy.” Call it less than amicable divorce, call it what you will: what it is, is Russia violently leaving the ranks of countries that exchange crude for US paper.

Headline:   New credit rating agencies to balance ‘Big Three’, China says

The creation of a joint Russian-Chinese credit rating agency will balance the global outlook and give the world an alternative view on how credit ratings should be done, Chinese international relations expert Victor Gao told RT. “Traditionally credit rating is mostly done by Western credit rating agencies. They sometimes may not fully understand the dynamics of the economics of any particular company or the sovereign borrower,” he said, adding that the agency won’t pursue a goal of replacing traditional Western credit rating agencies like S&P and Moody’s. “It will give the whole world another perspective of how risks are analyzed and how credit rating should be done,” he said. Gao believes Western rating agencies claim to be independent and professional, but in fact they turn out to be biased when it comes to issues of geopolitical importance. “During the global financial crisis the Western rating agencies did not react as quickly as possible,” he said. “In terms of the rating of the sovereign debt of the US for example, or even for Japan, they’ve actually displayed much more flexibility in rating these countries compared with many other countries.” The announcement of a rating could actually make a situation even worse rather than help stabilize it, he added.

Headline:   Puerto Rico approves 68 percent oil tax increase

Puerto Rico’s governor has signed a law that will increase the excise tax on a barrel of crude oil by 68 percent to help generate funds and sell an anticipated $2.9 billion in bonds. Alejandro Garcia Padilla said Thursday he also will file additional bills to help the government access financial markets. Puerto Rico has said it needs to issue new bonds to help reduce $73 billion in public debt and strengthen public corporations that are struggling financially. The tax per barrel would increase from $9.25 to $15.50 and generate about $178 million a year.

The number of Americans filing new claims for unemployment benefits last week increased to the highest level since early September, but the underlying trend continued to point to a strengthening labor market. Initial claims for state unemployment benefits rose by 19,000 to a seasonally adjusted 316,000 for the week ended Jan. 10, the Labor Department said on Thursday. Economists polled by Reuters had forecast claims falling to 291,000 last week. The prior week’s data was revised to show 3,000 more claims received than previously reported.

Headline:   Switzerland lifts currency cap, rocks global markets as franc soars

Gold prices jumped to a 4-month high on Thursday as European shares and the dollar turned lower after a shock move by Switzerland to abandon its three-year cap on the franc sent Europe’s shares and bond yields tumbling. U.S. gold futures for delivery in February settled $30.30 higher, at $,264.80 an ounce, its highest close since early September. Spot gold rose as much to its highest level since Sept. at $1,260.30 an ounce in earlier trade and was last up 2.3 percent at $1,257 an ounce. “Gold is gaining from a risk-off situation because nobody expected the Swiss central bank not to keep that cap, and this has created potential big losses in many places and is obviously triggering some flight to safety,” Saxo Bank senior manager Ole Hansen said. European stocks plunged and the dollar fell 0.2 percent against a basket of main currencies after the Swiss National Bank’s move, which is seen potentially preceding outright money-printing by the European Central Bank at its policy meeting next week.

 Headline: Saudi Arabia in oil-price war with Iran, Russia

Saudi Arabia is extending its own international jihad not only through its export of Wahhabism, an extreme form of Sunni Islam. The Islamic kingdom is now going after Russia, a main backer of the kingdom’s sectarian opponent, Shiite Iran, by targeting its oil production clout to adversely impact the Russian economy. Sources say the United States might even be colluding with Saudi Arabia to cause a dramatic drop in the international oil price in an effort to punish Russia not only for its support of rebels in Ukraine but for its backing of embattled Syrian President Bashar al-Assad as well as Iran. The Saudi strategy is to flood the international market to harm the economies of Russia and Iran (and the American Shale industry), both of which need the international price to be above $100 a barrel to break even. The price of oil today is less than $50 a barrel.

 Headline: Russia Just Made A Bold Move To Keep Its Gas Leverage On Europe

On Wednesday Russia’s announced that it will shift all its natural gas flows to Europe via Turkey, instead of Ukraine, reports Bloomberg News. “…the Turkish Stream us the only route along which 63 billion cubic metres of Russian gas can be supplied, which at present transit Ukraine. There is no other way,” the head of Gazprom Alexei Miller said. The European Union’s energy chief said that this would hurt Russia’s reputation as a supplier, and the European Commission’s VP for energy union said that the decision makes no economic sense, according to Bloomberg. However, the move makes sense when considering that Russia has been increasingly losing its control over the European gas market after changes in European policy and warmer winters. Now Europe will be forced to link up to Russia’s planned energy pipeline to Turkey — or it will lose Russian gas.

Headline: China enlists citizens to patrol border with North Korea

China is sending civilian militias to help secure the border it shares with North Korea, state media said, in the wake of two reported killings of Chinese citizens by North Koreans that could strain ties between Pyongyang and its sole major ally. The China Defence News said on Wednesday the government had established a civilian-military defense system in the Yanbian prefecture of Jilin province. Yanbian shares a border of about 500 km (310 miles) with North Korea. “China and North Korea are both keeping guard on the border …,” the newspaper said. “The situation is more complicated and relying on just one party would make it difficult to achieve effective control.” The government has also “guided the establishment of militia patrols” to guard border villages. Every 10 neighboring households would have their own border security group and there would be 24-hour video surveillance, the newspaper said. Last week, China said it had lodged a protest with North Korea after media reported that a North Korean army deserter had killed four people during a robbery in the Chinese border city of Helong late last month. State media has raised questions about the China-North Korea relationship, saying that the Chinese government “should not be too accommodating”. The issue of border security has become “very serious”, said Zhang Liangui, a North Korea expert at China’s Central Party School.

Headline: Fire in the South Pacific: Hunga Ha’apai underwater volcano erupts to turn the sea blood red and the sky grey with ash

An underwater volcano off the coast of Tonga is spewing ash high into the air – causing air travel chaos and turning the surrounding ocean the colour of blood. The Hunga Tonga-Hunga Ha’apai underwater volcano is around 40 miles (65km) north of Tonga’s capital Nuku’alofa. Its ash plume has reached heights of more than 14,765ft (4,500 metres) and the eruption has disturbed algae in the region, causing what’s known as a red tide. The volcano, which first erupted in 2009, had been rumbling in recent weeks before exploding violently in the past few days. Brad Scott, a volcanologist at New Zealand agency GNS Science, said volcanic activity had been recorded for several weeks in a stretch of ocean and small islands around 35 miles (60km) north of Nuku’alofa. He believes the volcano may have started beneath the ocean and grown until it reached the surface, essentially creating a new island. But he said details of the eruption still remain unclear. The Wellington Volcanic Ash Advisory Centre (VAAC) confirmed the height of the volcanic ash plume earlier today.
