Prophecy, Being Fulfilled


Following the News of the Scarlet Coloured Beast: see below

All prophecies have been fulfilled for the Rapture to occur! We are patiently anticipating his coming for us! Share the good news of Jesus Christ with your family and friends. With your feet shod with the preparation of the Gospel! Amen!

Isaiah 10:5  O Assyrian, the rod of mine anger, and the staff in their hand is mine indignation.
Zephaniah 3:8 Therefore wait ye upon me, saith the LORD, until the day that I rise up to the prey: for my determination [is] to gather the nations, that I may assemble the kingdoms, to pour upon them mine indignation, [even] all my fierce anger: for all the earth shall be devoured with the fire of my jealousy.

The ‘scarlet coloured beast’ is both, the coalition of kings/nations/countries and the beast, a leader/man.
‘The Beast’ of Rev 13 could look like this! The irresistible leader of Dan 11!!

***ISIS – (Sunni) **12/03/16 http://www.jpost.com/Middle-East/ISIS-Threat/Report-Islamic-State-leaders-called-to-choose-successor-to-Baghdadi-474332 Reports have circulated for the past year that the Islamic State leader was no longer in charge of the organization.
All senior leaders of Islamic State (ISIS) reportedly must gather in Iraq in order to choose a potential successor for the organization’s current leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi. It remains unclear why the organization is searching for a successor to Baghdadi. While some speculate that the leader was killed in a Mosul offensive which started in October, some believe the leader is alive but in mortal danger.
Two weeks after the Mosul offensive started, a 31-minute audio recording was published by “Al-Furkan” under the title “This is what Allah and his messenger promised us.” The recording featured Baghdadi addressing those in Mosul, warning them not to retreat or attempt to escape the battle.
“Total war and the greater jihad waged by the Islamic State today, with Allah’s help, amplifies the strong belief that everything is dedicated to the great victory,” Baghdadi said. “It is a sign heralding the victory promised to Allah’s followers.”
He also warned that “Jews, Christians and Shi’ites” had put money into fighting ISIS after they saw that it was one of the “bases of Islam.”
The leader also attempted to appeal to Iraq’s Sunnis stating that Shi’ites had invaded their country and were killing men and women.

**11/30/16 http://therightscoop.com/uh-oh-erdogan-calls-muslims-protect-jerusalem/ It’s being reported that yesterday, at a symposium on Jerusalem in Istanbul, that Erdogan called on all Muslims to protect Jerusalem and said it shouldn’t just be left to Palestinian children armed with stones:
TIMES OF ISRAEL – Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan on Tuesday urged Muslims to defend the Palestinian cause, striking a tough stance on Israel despite improved ties between the two nations.
“It is the common duty of all Muslims to embrace the Palestinian cause and protect Jerusalem,” the president of the majority country told a parliamentary symposium on Jerusalem in Istanbul.
Safeguarding the Al-Aqsa Mosque should not be left to children armed with nothing but stones, he said, in a likely reference to Palestinian youths who sometimes hurl stones at Israeli security forces on the Temple Mount. The Jerusalem hilltop is the third-most sacred site to Muslims and the holiest to Jews, the location of the two biblical temples.
You may just shrug your shoulders at this because it’s really no surprise that Muslims want Jerusalem. But this isn’t something to dismiss lightly, especially when you combine this with Erdogan’s previous statements on Jerusalem and the fact that he’s basically made himself Sultan of Turkey and is resurrecting the Antichrist Ottoman Empire in seven years from now!
Here’s what Erdogan said about Jerusalem just last year:
Unfortunately we Muslims lost our aim to head towards Jerusalem. The water of our eyes froze making us blind, and our hearts that was destined to beat for Jerusalem is now instead conditioned for rivalry being in a state of war with each other.”
He also called on Turkish citizens to:
“raise their hands in supplication for this blessed night towards Allah to restore the Al-Aqsa Mosque [Jerusalem] to be re-owned by Muslims, and to remove the mist from their eyes, to see Jerusalem in their hands at every moment and at every opportunity”.
In the speech yesterday Erdogan actually said that the only answer to peace is a Palestinian state with its capital being East Jerusalem:
The only way for permanent peace in the Middle East is a free and independent Palestinian state with a capital in East Jerusalem.
And let me remind you that the chief of Muslim scholars, the religious leader of the Muslim Brotherhood himself, Sheikh Yusuf Qaradawi, sent a letter to Erdogan after the ‘coup’ attempt last July declaring him the SUPREME LEADER for the ENTIRE Muslim World. Some even suggest he’s the coming Mahdi!
Now when you put this together with what we know is coming, the invasion of Jerusalem by an army of Muslims led by Turkey (as explained in Ezekiel 38), this becomes a much more ominous statement. This 3 1/2 year invasion and occupation of Jerusalem by these Muslim forces will be the central focus of Armageddon itself!
Of course we don’t know when that’s going to happen and we’re still holding out for confirmation of who the Antichrist is, but if I had to guess I’d say we are less than two decades away from seeing all of this come to fruition, and perhaps sooner than later. That’s why all of this is so important and why I think you should know about it.
If you’re confused about the Bible Prophecy portion of this, check out our primer that we penned earlier this year.
**9/20/16 https://sputniknews.com/politics/20160920/1045525133/erdogan-reform-security-cuncil.html Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said that the United Nations needs to reform the Security Council in order to make its work more just.
The United Nations needs to reform the Security Council in order to make its work more just, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said Tuesday at the UN General Assembly in New York City.
**”The United National Security Council should be reformed in order to render peacekeeping and peacemaking activities more effective. And we fully appreciate the steps taken forward by Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon in that direction… You cannot preserve the same structure [of the UNSC] under the circumstances of the modern times. You cannot condemn the fate of the rest of the world within the lips of these five countries represented within the Security Council… This is not a Security Council to have,” Erdogan said. “A Security Council that does not represent the entire world can never serve to reestablish peace and justice around the world. This is something that we need to revisit over and over again,” the Turkish president added.

There’s no question this is going to set back and make more difficult cooperation with the Turks.”  Erdogan, for his part, speaking in Istanbul, complained: “Some countries which should be praising Turkey for putting down coup, but are instead standing by plotters.”

ALERT – TODAY

***5/16/17 http://www.debka.com/article/26055/Hizballah-rush-1-000-troops-to-S-Syrian-borders The pro-Iranian Hizballah Tuesday, May 16, rushed 12 companies of 1,000 fighters to the Homs, Daraa and Quneitra (Golan) regions of southern Syria to block off the entry of “US-backed militants” from Jordan through the Al-Tanf border crossing. On Sunday, May 14 – as first revealed by DEBKAfile’s military sources – US, British and Jordanian special operations forces entered southern Syria in an operation for saving Syria’s southern borders from a grab by pro-Iranian forces that was timed for the run-up to US President Donald Trump’s visit next week..
Iranian military sources explained Tuesday that southern Syria was under threat of a combined US, Jordanian, Israeli assault and that both Moscow and Tehran had offered Syrian President Bashar Assad any assistance his army might need for repelling this assault. Those sources also revealed that Iranian Revolutionary Guards troops had begun moving reinforcements to the Syrian-Iraqi border.
For the background to his scenario, read DEBKAfile’s Monday report:
US special forces, together with British and Jordanian elite troops, moved into southern Syria late Sunday, May 14. They were acting to counter the Syrian-Iranian scheme to nullify the American plan for posting Jordanian forces in southeastern Syria, which timed for the days before US President Donald Trump’s trip to the Middle East.
The US-led armored force with British and Jordanian units crossed from northern Jordan through the Tanf Border-Crossing between the Hashemite Kingdom, Iraq and Syria, and took up positions capable of consolidating their control of the main road between Palmyra and Baghdad. Some of their moves were coordinated with Israel.
(See map).
This push aimed at countering the drive in the last few days by hundreds of Syrian troops, Iranian-backed Shiite militias and Hizballah’s Radwan special forces, with tanks and heavy equipment, to take over the town of Sabaa Biyar. Located in sparsely desert territory, this town lies 110km west of the Syrian-Iraqi border, 95km north of the Syrian-Jordanian border and 128km east of Damascus.
Its high strategic importance for Tehran, Damascus and Hizballah lies in its command of the border between Syria, Iraq and Jordan and of Highway No. 1 which links the Jordanian capital of Amman with Baghdad.
DEBKAfile’s military sources explain that Damascus and Tehran acted to pre-empt the US-Jordanian-Israeli military operations along the Israeli and Jordanian borders with Syria, lest they lead to the carving out of US-controlled security zones in southern Syria.
Our military sources add that Moscow too eyes the new US-led military movements with mistrust, in view of its potential impact on the Russian plan for four ceasefire zones in Syria, in cooperation with Iranian and Turkish forces. The Russians are accordingly feeding Tehran and Damascus intelligence on the US-led movements.
On Sunday, too, the Israeli Defense Forces launched a large-scale military exercise in the Galilee and Golan regions close to its borders with Syria and Lebanon. The war game may well run over its final date in order to keep a substantial military force poised on along Israel’s northern borders, in case of attempts to disrupt the Trump visits to Saudi Arabia and Israel from May 22 to May 24.
Other military movements in the region this week were taken by the Iraqi army and Iraqi Shiite militias under the command of Iranian Revolutionary Guards officers. Iran continued to pour additional troops into Damascus through the Baghdad-Damascus highway, on the one hand, while, on the other, Iraqi Prime Minister Haidar al-Abadi offered Washington two of his army’s divisions, which would be sent into Syria to support US military operations in the southeast.
For the time being, the Trump administration’s plans for an offensive against the Islamic State appear to have been put on a back burner.
*4/7/16 http://www.independent.co.uk/news/world/europe/sweden-workers-microchip-implant-cash-card-id-pass-replace-employee-hand-epicenter-rice-grain-size-a7670551.html Swedish workers implanted with microchips to replace cash cards and ID passes.
As with most new technologies, it raises security and privacy issues
The syringe slides in between the thumb and index finger. Then, with a click, a microchip is injected in the employee’s hand. Another “cyborg” is created.
What could pass for a dystopian vision of the workplace is almost routine at the Swedish startup hub Epicenter. The company offers to implant its workers and startup members with microchips the size of grains of rice that function as swipe cards: to open doors, operate printers, or buy smoothies with a wave of the hand.
The injections have become so popular that workers at Epicenter hold parties for those willing to get implanted.
“The biggest benefit I think is convenience,” said Patrick Mesterton, co-founder and CEO of Epicenter. As a demonstration, he unlocks a door by merely waving near it. “It basically replaces a lot of things you have, other communication devices, whether it be credit cards or keys.”
The technology in itself is not new. Such chips are used as virtual collar plates for pets. Companies use them to track deliveries. It’s just never been used to tag employees on a broad scale before. Epicenter and a handful of other companies are the first to make chip implants broadly available.
And as with most new technologies, it raises security and privacy issues. While biologically safe, the data generated by the chips can show how often an employee comes to work or what they buy. Unlike company swipe cards or smartphones, which can generate the same data, a person cannot easily separate themselves from the chip.
“Of course, putting things into your body is quite a big step to do and it was even for me at first,” said Mr Mesterton, remembering how he initially had had doubts.
“Of course, putting things into your body is quite a big step to do and it was even for me at first,” said Mr Mesterton, remembering how he initially had had doubts.
“But then on the other hand, I mean, people have been implanting things into their body, like pacemakers and stuff to control your heart,” he said. “That’s a way, way more serious thing than having a small chip that can actually communicate with devices.”
Epicenter, which is home to more than 100 companies and some 2,000 workers, began implanting workers in January 2015. Now, about 150 workers have them. A company based in Belgium also offers its employees such implants, and there are isolated cases around the world where tech enthusiasts have tried this out in recent years.
The small implants use near field communication (NFC) technology, the same as in contactless credit cards or mobile payments. When activated by a reader a few centimetres away, a small amount of data flows between the two devices via electromagnetic waves. The implants are “passive”, meaning they contain information that other devices can read, but cannot read information themselves.
Ben Libberton, a microbiologist at Stockholm’s Karolinska Institute, says hackers could conceivably gain huge swathes of information from embedded microchips. The ethical dilemmas will become bigger the more sophisticated the microchips become.
“The data that you could possibly get from a chip that is embedded in your body is a lot different from the data that you can get from a smartphone,” he says. “Conceptually you could get data about your health, you could get data about your whereabouts, how often you’re working, how long you’re working, if you’re taking toilet breaks and things like that.”
Libberton said that if such data is collected, the big question remains of what happens to it, who uses it, and for what purpose.
So far, Epicenter’s group of cyborgs doesn’t seem too concerned.
“People ask me; ‘Are you chipped?’ and I say; ‘Yes, why not,”‘ said Fredric Kaijser, 47, the chief experience officer at Epicenter. “And they all get excited about privacy issues and what that means and so forth. And for me it’s just a matter of I like to try new things and just see it as more of an enabler and what that would bring into the future.”
The implants have become so popular that Epicenter workers stage monthly events where attendees have the option of being “chipped” for free.
That means visits from self-described “body hacker” Jowan Osterlund from Biohax Sweden who performs the “operation”.
He injects the implants — using pre-loaded syringes — into the fleshy area of the hand, just next to the thumb. The process lasts a few seconds, and more often than not there are no screams and barely a drop of blood. “The next step for electronics is to move into the body,” he says.
Sandra Haglof, 25, who works for Eventomatic, an events company that works with Epicenter, has had three piercings before, and her left hand barely shakes as Osterlund injects the small chip.
“I want to be part of the future,” she laughs.
4/4/17 http://www.express.co.uk/news/nature/787836/Mediterranean-sea-creatures-disappearing-shocking-rate-extinction Over the past 50 years, almost half the sea’s mammals have been lost along with more than a third of its fish population.
Experts say that 93 per cent of the fish stocks are exploited, with several on the verge of depletion.

Only a few months after an “obituary” was written for Australia’s Great Barrier Reef because of coral loss, the planet’s most used and abused sea is now in a parlous state.
A new report by scientists from the European Commission’s Joint Research Centre (JRC) warns that although as many as 12,000 marine species inhabit the Mediterranean its “extraordinary biodiversity is in grave danger” as it is threatened by pollution, climate change and overfishing.
The JRC, the EC’s science and knowledge service with experts to carry out research to provide independent scientific advice and support to EU policy, is warning these pressures might push the Mediterranean ecosystem “beyond the point of no return” and says delays could cause the collapse of key fishing stocks.
Looking at historical changes in the sea’s “food web”, scientists have concluded it has lost 41 per cent of the marine mammals and 34 per cent of the total amount of fish since the mid-1960s.
Largest reductions were in the Western Mediterranean and Adriatic Sea with 50 per cent declines. The loss was far less in the Ionian Sea.
A report by the International Union for Conservation of Nature – guardians of the Red List of endangered species – painted a worrying picture of the Mediterranean’s marine mammals five years ago, warning that six of the nine resident species were threatened with extinction.
The most critically endangered is the monk seal with as few as 350 individuals, while the sperm whale and short-beaked common dolphin were also revealed as being in danger of dying out.
Fin whale, bottlenose dolphin and striped dolphin were classed as vulnerable.
**3/20/17 http://www.debka.com/article/25973/Israeli-Russian-clash-over-Hizballah%E2%80%99s-Golan-grab  The Israeli drone that targeted the Syrian militiaman Yasser Sayad outside the Golan town of Quneitra Sunday, March 19, reinforced the message first carried by the Israeli Arrow 2 which shot down a Syrian SA-5 anti-air missile Friday. The Israeli ambassador was called twice to the Russian foreign ministry.
DEBKAfile’s military sources reveal that Jerusalem was further alarmed Sunday by discovering that an Iraqi Shiite militia was on the way, under the command of Iran’s Al Qods chief Gen. Qassem Soleiman, to reinforce Hizballah’s Hermon-Golan offensive. This militia, called the Al-Nojba Movement, consisting of 1,500 Iraqi Shiite fighters, is the pet project of Hizballah’s deputy chief Sheikh Naieem Qassem, who sent officers to train them.
*12/29/16 http://www.debka.com/newsupdatepopup/19527/Putin-Syrian-gov-t-has-signed-cease-fire-agreement-with-rebels Russian President Vladimir Putin confirmed Thursday that a cease-fire agreement, scheduled to go into effect at midnight, has been signed by the Syrian military and rebel groups. Following a meeting with his defense and foreign ministers, Putin said the “very fragile” agreement requires “special attention and patience, professional attitude, and constant contact with our partners.” He said it consists of three main documents: one signed by the Syrian government and the opposition to halt hostilities; one specifying the measures for maintaining the cease-fire; and one with a declaration of intention to resolve the conflict. Russian Defense Minister Sergey Shoigu said seven rebel groups with a total of about 60,000 soldiers signed the agreement, and that a hotline had been set up between the Russian and Turkish military commands to help maintain the truce. He added that “All conditions have been created for the reduction of the Russian group in Syria” without specifying the timing of such a withdrawal or the units to be sent home.

The resolution was approved 14-0 with the one abstention. The vote was greeted with loud applause in the packed Security Council chamber.
The measure demands Israel “immediately and completely cease all settlement activities in the occupied Palestinian territory, including East Jerusalem.” It declares the establishment of settlements by Israel has “no legal validity and constitutes a flagrant violation under international law.”
In abstaining, the U.S. brushed aside calls for a veto by president-elect Donald Trumpwho, in an unprecedented move, managed to delay the vote a day by weighing in with Egypt, the initial sponsor of the resolution.

There’s no question this is going to set back and make more difficult cooperation with the Turks.”  2/2/16 http://in.reuters.com/article/mideast-crisis-coalition-idINKCN0VA3S4 An international coalition is pushing back Islamic State militants (ISIS) in their Syrian and Iraqi strongholds, but the group is threatening Libya and could seize the nation’s oil wealth, U.S Secretary of State John Kerry said on Tuesday.
Officials from 23 countries met in Rome to review the fight against Islamic State militants (ISIS), who have created a self-proclaimed Caliphate across swathes of Syria and Iraq, and are spreading into other countries, notably Libya.
The one-day Rome meeting took place as talks have begun in Geneva to try to end the five-year-old Syrian civil war, which has killed at least 250,000 people, driven more than 10 million from their homes and drawn in the United States and Russia on opposite sides.
While Washington has long said Syrian President Bashar al-Assad has lost the legitimacy to lead, it has made clear that its first priority is to try to rein in Islamic State group.  “If you want to beat Daesh (ISIS) quickly, then get a negotiated deal to end the Syria war,” Kerry said.

The LION is BABYLON

“and his mouth like the mouth of a lion”
Dan 7:4 The first [was] like a lion, and had eagle’s wings: I beheld till the wings thereof were plucked, and it was lifted up from the earth, and made stand upon the feet as a man, and a man’s heart was given to it.
Dan 11:11 “And the king of the South shall be moved with rage, and go out and fight with him, with the king of the North, who shall muster a great multitude; but the multitude shall be given into the hand of his enemy.
9/16/16 http://www.jpost.com/Middle-East/Saudi-prince-warns-Iran-against-using-force-to-pursue-rivalry-467795 DUBAI – A senior Saudi official, responding to Iranian criticism of Riyadh’s management of the haj pilgrimage, urged Iran to end what he called wrong attitudes towards Arabs and warned it against any use of force in its rivalry with the kingdom.
Mecca province governor Prince Khaled al-Faisal, in remarks likely to be seen as a reference to Iran, added that the orderly conduct of the pilgrimage this year “is a response to all the lies and slanders made against the kingdom.”
The remarks carried by the official Saudi Press Agency (SPA) on Wednesday evening follow an escalating war of words between Shi’ite Muslim Iran and Sunni Saudi Arabia since a crush at the annual haj pilgrimage a year ago in which hundreds of pilgrims, many of them Iranians, died.
SPA quoted Prince Khaled as telling journalists his message to the Iranian leadership was “I pray to God Almighty to guide them and to deter them from their transgression and their wrong attitudes toward their fellow Muslim among the Arabs in Iraq, Syria, Yemen and around the world”.
“But if they are preparing an army to invade us, we are not easily taken by someone who would make war on us.”
“When we desire, and with the help of God Almighty, we will deter every aggressor and will never relent in protecting this holy land and our dear country. No one can defile any part from our country if any one of us remains on the face of the earth.”
No top Iranian leader has called for war with Saudi Arabia, something neither country wants.

Dubai (Sunni) http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dubai Dubai (/dˈb/ doo-BYArabic: دبيّ‎ Dubayy, IPA: [dʊˈbæj]) is a city in the United Arab Emirates, located within the emirate of the same name. The emirate of Dubai is located on the southeast coast of the Persian Gulf and is one of the seven emirates that make up the country. It has the largest population in the UAE (2,106,177) and the second-largest land territory (4,114 km2) after the capital, Abu Dhabi.[4] Abu Dhabi and Dubai are the only two emirates to have veto power over critical matters of national importance in the country’s legislature.[5] The city of Dubai is located on the emirate’s northern coastline and heads up the Dubai-Sharjah-Ajman metropolitan area. Dubai is often misperceived as a country or city-state and, in some cases, the UAE as a whole has been described as ‘Dubai’

Abu Dhabi (mixed Sunni,Shi’ite) houses important offices of the federal government, and is the seat for the UAE (United Arab Emirates Government) and the home for the Abu Dhabi Emiri Family and the President of the UAE from this family. Abu Dhabi has grown to be a cosmopolitan metropolis. Its rapid development and urbanisation, coupled with the relatively high average income of its population, has transformed Abu Dhabi to a larger and advanced metropolis. Today the city is the country’s center of politicalindustrial activities, and a major cultural, and commercial centre due to its position as the capital. Abu Dhabi alone generated 56.7% of the GDP of the United Arab Emirates in 2008.

On Wednesday, this frail 79-year-old, who only ascended to the throne in January, executed a Saudi version of a palace revolution by suddenly altering the line of succession. Prince Muqrin, the youngest living son of ibn Saud, had been lined up to inherit the throne. Now the king has ruthlessly shoved him aside. For good measure, Prince Saud al-Faisal, the foreign minister, has also been relieved of his duties  http://www.debka.com/newsupdate/7535/    Is this emirate playing the Babylon roll???  http://www.israelnationalnews.com/News/News.aspx/183979#.U-pJVfldWSo   Saudi Arabia[b] ( i/ˌsdi əˈrbi.ə/ or  i/ˌsɔːd əˈrbi.ə/), officially known as the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (KSA),[c] is the largest Arab state in Western Asia by land area (approximately 2,150,000 km2 (830,000 sq mi), constituting the bulk of the Arabian Peninsula) and the second-largest in the Arab world after Algeria. It is bordered byJordan and Iraq to the north, Kuwait to the northeast, QatarBahrain and the United Arab Emirates to the east, Oman to the southeast, and Yemen in the south. It is the only nation with both a Red Sea coast and a Persian Gulf coast.Before the inception of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, modern-day Saudi Arabia consisted of four distinct regions: HejazNajd and parts of Eastern Arabia (Al-Hasa) andSouthern Arabia (‘Asir).[12] The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia was founded in 1932 by Ibn Saud; he united the four regions into a single state through a series of conquests beginning in 1902 with the capture of Riyadh, the ancestral home of his family, the House of Saud. The country has since been an absolute monarchy governed along Islamic lines, namely under the influence of Wahhabism.[13] Saudi Arabia is sometimes called “the Land of the Two Holy Mosques” in reference to Al-Masjid al-Haram (inMecca), and Al-Masjid an-Nabawi (in Medina), the two holiest places in Islam.

The monarch brought President Abdel-Fattteh El-Sisi two large checks: a $20bn guarantee to cover the oil needs of 90 million Egyptians for the next five years, and another $1.5bn listed euphemistically under the heading of “Sinai development.”
http://www.ynetnews.com/articles/0,7340,L-4558024,00.html Saudi Arabia told Israel on Tuesday that it must reach a peace agreement with the Palestinians if it is to survive as a nation, and criticised Muslims for being divided and failing to stop the Jewish state attacking its Arab neighbours. If Saudi Arabia is Babylon and this latest news reflects the war coming, is it time Rev 17,18 to be fulfilled? Perhaps it is time to reveal the ‘beast’, the leader of the end times called the anti-Christ.

UN – (leans to Shi’ite)1/29/15  The French have offered this resolution, “responsibility not to veto” (RN2V) that would apply in situations of mass atrocities.  Since the UN High Level Event that endorsed R2P in 2005, the United States has used the veto three times with reference to Israel and the Occupied Territories. In all likelihood, it will feel the need to do so in the future. despite unanimous endorsement by all UN member states of their individual and collective responsibility to protect (R2P) all people from crimes against humanity. Since 2011, Russia and China have cast four vetoes to block international action in Syria, where more than 200,000 have been killed since the conflict began. Wednesday in Paris, French Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius repeated [in French] France’s determination to overcome this paralysis by establishing a new international norm to accompany R2P: a “responsibility not to veto” (RN2V) that would apply in situations of mass atrocities. The French proposal includes a trigger—a request by some subset of UN member states (perhaps fifty) to the secretary-general that (s)he (namely the PA and friends) determine whether atrocities are being committed. It also includes an important caveat—and potential Achilles heel: P5 members can still use a veto when they perceive a “vital national interest” at stake. http://www.defenseone.com/politics/2015/01/how-un-members-want-bypass-security-council-veto/103608/?oref=d-channelriver

Iraq – 12/04/16 http://www.debka.com/article/25816/%E2%80%9CSyrian-5th-Corps%E2%80%9D-is-new-Shiite-foreign-legion Syria and its allies came closer than ever to taking Aleppo on Friday, Dec. 2, when they captured the Tariq al-Bab district to gain control of 60 percent of the rebel-held eastern part of the city.
Drawing on the lessons of this success, the winning forces have begun building a military outfit modeled on the format of the victorious coalition. It is designated the “Fifth Corps” of the Syrian army, but DEBKAfile’s military and intelligence sources can identity the new unit as the framework for an international Shiite brigade or foreign legion.
It is the brainchild of the Iranian Revolutionary Guards’ Gen. Qassem Soleimani, commander of Iranian Mid East operations, who is in Iraq at present, supervising the Shiite militias on the Mosul front. However, his officers are overseeing its construction of the new military legion. It is composed of the remnants of the Syrian army’s First and Second Corps, which took a bad beating in the five years of conflict, the Hizballah expeditionary force in Syria and the Shiite militias which Tehran imported from Iraq, Afghanistan and Pakistan to fight for Bashar Assad.
The new framework aims to field 50,000 to 70,000 fighting men.
Its command structure is already taking shape in a form that is new for the Syrian army and indeed any other fighting force in the region. Syrian, Hizballah and foreign Shiite officers will make up this command, but not direct their own forces, only mixed units composed of Iranian, Syrian, Shiite and Hizballah servicemen.
It will be the first Shiite army or foreign legion ever seen in the Middle East.
An oblique reference to the novel force came from a Hizballah source this week who said: “The Fifth Corps is an important turning-point for the ties between allied forces within the same axis – Syria, Iran, Russia and Hizballah.”
Russia? DEBKAfile’s sources have heard no hint of the Russians joining the new Shiite legion. But Hizballah has been spreading reports in the past fortnight about its deepening ties with Russian officers, mainly on the Aleppo front, and their supposed appreciation of the Lebanese Shiites’ fighting prowess.
The Syrian high command has meanwhile moved forward on the new scheme with a decision this week to send the entire next class of military recruits to the new Fifth Corps.
The new Shiite foreign legion or international brigade presents a major headache for Syria’s neighbors, Turkey, Lebanon, Jordan and Israel. It provides a cover for Iran and Hizballah to sneak troops right up to their borders. Whenever this happened in the past, Israel and Jordan pushed back hard. But this will be more difficult once the Fifth Corps is set up as an integral part of the Syrian army.
Western and Arab observers following the Syrian war believe that, as soon as they finish off the rebels in Aleppo, the new foreign legion’s forces will turn south to repeat the exercise there with Russian support.
The Russian bombardment of rebel concentrations outside the southern towns of Jasim and Daraa Sunday, Nov. 27, was seen a message from Moscow to Jerusalem and Amman that southern Syria is now in line for the next battle.
4/16/15 http://www.reuters.com/article/us-iraq-vote-idUSKCN0XD0O7  BAGHDAD Iraq’s powerful Shi’ite cleric Moqtada al-Sadr warned on Saturday he would re-start protests within 72 hours if the nation’s leaders failed to vote on a cabinet of technocrats proposed by Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi to tackle corruption.
Sadr addressed his warning to Abadi, who belongs to the Shi’ite majority, and to the two other top state officials, President Fuad Masum, a Kurd, and Parliament Speaker Salim al-Jabouri, a Sunni Muslim.
“The three presidencies should coordinate in order to hold a session and present a cabinet of independent technocrats,” Sadr said, demanding that current ministers resign immediately.
Iraq, a major OPEC exporter which sits on one of the world’s largest oil reserves, ranks 161th out of 168 countries on Transparency International’s Corruption Perceptions Index.
Corruption became a major issue after oil prices collapsed in 2014, shrinking the state budget at a time when it needed additional income to pay for war on the hardline Sunni group.

Libya – 4/16/16 http://www.reuters.com/article/us-libya-security-france-germany-idUSKCN0XD0JB The West is counting on the unity government to tackle Islamic State militants in Libya and prevent new flows of migrants heading north across the Mediterranean, though the new government’s leaders are still trying to establish themselves in Tripoli. “Nothing will be done unless the government wants it and examines it in a very concrete manner,” said French Foreign Minister Jean-Marc Ayrault.
Libya slipped into political turmoil after a NATO backed air campaign helped rebels topple autocrat Muammar Gaddafi five years ago. Paris played a leading part in the campaign, but has regretted the lack of support given to the authorities afterwards.
Since 2014 the country has had two competing sets of parliaments and governments in Tripoli and the east, both backed by loose alliances of armed brigades.

The havoc a nuclear terrorist attack could wreak in an urban area like New York, London, or Berlin is urgent enough that the leaders scheduled a special session on this threat during the two-day summit. However, a key remedy to address this threat was already underscored back in February by CIA Chief John-Brennan — cutting off ISIS supply line through Turkey.
China shares this suspicion. Writing in CCTV, Professor Han Xudongfrom PLA National Defense University observed that Turkey’s invasion of northern Iraq in October was likely to keep borders open for Turkish “convoys” to enter Turkey from Iraq, since “with the increase of air power by the Russian air force, it has become more difficult for the “convoys” to enter Turkey from Syria.”

How it all ties together:
Rev 13:1And I stood upon the sand of the sea
 (‘sea’ in scripture imagery stands for the populace, the unorganized mass of mankind (Isa 60:5; Dan 7:2,3; Mt.13:47; Lk 21:25;)),

and saw a beast (17:3And I saw a woman sitting on a scarlet beast [which was] full of names of blasphemy, having seven heads and ten horns)

rise up out of the sea (‘sea’ in scripture imagery stands for the populace, the unorganized mass of mankind (Isa 60:5; Dan 7:2,3; Mt.13:47; Lk 21:25;)),

having seven heads and ten horns, and upon his horns ten crowns, (17:3And I saw a woman sitting on a scarlet beast [which was] full of names of blasphemy, having seven heads and ten horns) (Rev 12:3And there appeared another wonder in heaven; and behold a great red dragon, having seven heads and ten horns, and seven crowns upon his heads. 12:9And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceives the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.) (Rev 20:2 And he laid hold on the dragon, that old serpent, which is the Devil, and Satan, and bound him a thousand years) (These 10 crowns/horns (see Dan 7:24) are kings/countries that once were the Ottoman Empire. (Dan 2:43 And whereas thou sawest iron mixed with miry clay, they shall mingle themselves with the seed of men: but they shall not cleave one to another, even as iron is not mixed with clay. 44 And in the days of these kings shall the God of heaven set up a kingdom, which shall never be destroyed: and the kingdom shall not be left to other people, [but] it shall break in pieces and consume all these kingdoms, and it shall stand for ever. 45 Forasmuch as thou sawest that the stone was cut out of the mountain without hands, and that it brake in pieces the iron, the brass, the clay, the silver, and the gold; the great God hath made known to the king what shall come to pass hereafter: and the dream [is] certain, and the interpretation thereof sure.)

and upon his heads the name of blasphemy. [“Allah”- “Praise “Allah”] (17:3And I saw a woman sitting on a scarlet beast [which was] full of names of blasphemy, having seven heads and ten horns)

2 And the beast (17:3 a scarlet beast [which was] full of names of blasphemy, having seven heads and ten horns)

which I saw was like unto a leopard, and his feet were as [the feet] of a bear, and his mouth as the mouth of a lion:  (Daniel 7:3″And four great beasts came up from the sea, each different from the other.
4″The first [was] like a lion, and had eagle’s wings. I watched till its wings were plucked off; and it was lifted up from the earth and made to stand on two feet like a man, and a man’s heart was given to it.
5″And suddenly another beast, a second, like a bear. It was raised up on one side, and [had] three ribs in its mouth between its teeth. And they said thus to it: ‘Arise, devour much flesh!’
6″After this I looked, and there was another, like a leopard, which had on its back four wings of a bird. The beast also had four heads, and dominion was given to it.
7″After this I saw in the night visions, and behold, a fourth beast, dreadful and terrible, exceedingly strong. It had huge iron teeth; it was devouring, breaking in pieces, and trampling the residue with its feet. It [was] different from all the beasts that [were] before it, and it had ten horns.
8″I was considering the horns, and there was another horn, a little one, coming up among them, before whom three of the first horns were plucked out by the roots. And there, in this horn, [were] eyes like the eyes of a man, and a mouth speaking pompous words.

17’Those great beasts, which are four, [are] four kings [which] arise out of the earth.
23″Thus he said: ‘The fourth beast shall be A fourth kingdom on earth, Which shall be different from all [other] kingdoms, And shall devour the whole earth, Trample it and break it in pieces.
24The ten horns [are] ten kings [Who] shall arise from this kingdom. And another shall rise after them; He shall be different from the first [ones], And shall subdue three kings. (ISIS)
25He shall speak [pompous] words against the Most High, Shall persecute the saints of the Most High, And shall intend to change times and law. Then [the saints] shall be given into his hand For a time and times and half a time. (3 1/2 years)
26’But the court shall be seated, And they shall take away his dominion, To consume and destroy [it] forever). (Dan 7:17 These great beasts, which are four, [are] four kings, [which] shall arise out of the earth.)
40 And the fourth kingdom shall be strong as iron: forasmuch as iron breaketh in pieces and subdueth all [things]: and as iron that breaketh all these, shall it break in pieces and bruise. 41 And whereas thou sawest the feet and toes, part of potters’ clay, and part of iron, the kingdom shall be divided; but there shall be in it of the strength of the iron, forasmuch as thou sawest the iron mixed with miry clay. 42 And [as] the toes of the feet [were] part of iron, and part of clay, [so] the kingdom shall be partly strong, and partly broken. 43 And whereas thou sawest iron mixed with miry clay, they shall mingle themselves with the seed of men: but they shall not cleave one to another, even as iron is not mixed with clay. 44 And in the days of these kings shall the God of heaven set up a kingdom, which shall never be destroyed: and the kingdom shall not be left to other people, [but] it shall break in pieces and consume all these kingdoms, and it shall stand for ever. 45 Forasmuch as thou sawest that the stone was cut out of the mountain without hands, and that it brake in pieces the iron, the brass, the clay, the silver, and the gold; the great God hath made known to the king what shall come to pass hereafter: and the dream [is] certain, and the interpretation thereof sure. (note there are 5 counting the toes))

and the dragon (Rev 20:2 And he laid hold on the dragon, that old serpent, which is the Devil, and Satan, and bound him a thousand year)

gave him his power, and his seat, and great authority. (Rev 17:17 “For God has put it into their hearts to fulfill His purpose, to be of one mind, and to give their kingdom to the beast, until the words of God are fulfilled. Isa 14:24 The LORD of hosts hath sworn, saying, Surely as I have thought, so shall it come to pass; and as I have purposed, [so] shall it stand: 25 That I will break the Assyrian in my land, and upon my mountains tread him under foot: then shall his yoke depart from off them, and his burden depart from off their shoulders. 26 This [is] the purpose that is purposed upon the whole earth: and this [is] the hand that is stretched out upon all the nations. 27 For the LORD of hosts hath purposed, and who shall disannul [it]? and his hand [is] stretched out, and who shall turn it back?)

3And I saw one of his heads as it were wounded to death; and his deadly wound was healed: and all the world wondered after the beast.
4And they worshipped the dragon (Rev 12:9And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceives the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.) (Rev 20:2 And he laid hold on the dragon, that old serpent, which is the Devil, and Satan, and bound him a thousand years)

which gave power unto the beast: and they worshipped the beast, (“Allah”- “Praise “Allah” – worship – acknowledges his power) (Rev 17:17 “For God has put it into their hearts to fulfill His purpose, to be of one mind, and to give their kingdom to the beast, until the words of God are fulfilled. (see Isa 14:24-27))

saying, Who [is] like unto the beast? who is able to make war with him?
5And there was given unto him a mouth speaking great things (now speaking of the antichrist man, a leader)

and blasphemies; (“Allah”- “Praise “Allah” – worship – acknowledges his power) (17:3And I saw a woman sitting on a scarlet beast [which was] full of names of blasphemy having seven heads and ten horns)

and power was given unto him to continue forty [and] two months. (3 ½ years)
6And he opened his mouth (now speaking of the antichrist man, a leader)

in blasphemy (“Allah”- “Praise “Allah”)

against God, to blaspheme His name, and his tabernacle, and them that dwell in heaven. 
7And it was given unto him to make war with the saints, and to overcome them: and power was given him over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations. (Rev 17:17 “For God has put it into their hearts to fulfill His purpose, to be of one mind, and to give their kingdom to the beast, until the words of God are fulfilled. (see Isa 14:24-27))

8And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, (“Allah”- “Praise “Allah” – worship – acknowledges his power, bowing down) (Rev 17:17 “For God has put it into their hearts to fulfill His purpose, to be of one mind, and to give their kingdom to the beast, until the words of God are fulfilled. (see Isa 14:24-27))

whose names are not written in the book of life (the unsaved) of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world.
9If any man have an ear, let him hear.
10He that leadeth into captivity shall go into captivity: he that killeth with the sword must be killed with the sword. Here is the patience and the faith of the saints.
11And I beheld another beast coming up out of the earth; and he had two horns like a lamb, and he spake as a dragon. (Rev 16:13 And I saw three unclean spirits like frogs come out of the mouth of the dragon, and out of the mouth of the beast, and out of the mouth of the false prophet.)

12And he exerciseth all the power of the first beast before him, and causeth the earth and them which dwell therein to worship the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed. (“Allah”- “Praise “Allah” – worship – acknowledges his power, bowing down)

13And he doeth great wonders, so that he maketh fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men,
14And deceiveth them that dwell on the earth (Rev 17:17 “For God has put it into their hearts to fulfill His purpose, to be of one mind, and to give their kingdom to the beast, until the words of God are fulfilled. (see Isa 14:24-27))

by [the means of] those miracles which he had power to do in the sight of the beast; saying to them that dwell on the earth, that they should make an image to the beast, which had the wound by a sword, and did live.
15And he had power to give life unto the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed. (bow down, convert to, “Allah”- “Praise “Allah” – worship – acknowledges his power)

16And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: (Rev 14:9 Then another angel, a third one, followed them, saying with a loud voice, “If anyone worships the beast and his image, and receives a mark on his forehead or on his hand, 10 he also will drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is mixed in full strength in the cup of His anger; and he will be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels and in the presence of the Lamb. 11 “And the smoke of their torment goes up forever and ever; they have no rest day and night, those who worship the beast and his image, and whoever receives the mark of his name.”)

17And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.
18Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number [is] Six hundred threescore [and] six. (In the Codex Sinaiticus there are three Greek symbols that have been interpreted to be 666.)

Rev 17:1Then one of the seven angels who had the seven bowls came and talked with me, saying to me, “Come, I will show you the judgment (Chap 18)

of the great harlot (17:5 and on her forehead a name [was] written MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND OF THE ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH) (18and the woman whom you saw is that great city which reigns over the kings of the earth. “Babylon”)

2 “with whom the kings of the earth (The Scarlet Beast)

committed fornication, and the inhabitants of the earth were made drunk with the wine of her fornication.”
3 So he carried me away in the Spirit into the wilderness. And I saw a woman
 (17:5 MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND OF THE ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH) (18 the woman whom you saw is that great city which reigns over the kings of the earth. “Babylon)

sitting on a scarlet beast (15 Then he said to me, “The waters which you saw, where the harlot sits, are peoples, multitudes, nations, and tongues)

[which was] full of names of blasphemy (“Allah”- “Praise “Allah” – worship (acknowledges his power)),

having seven heads and ten horns. (12 “The ten horns which you saw are ten kings who have received no kingdom as yet, but they receive authority for one hour as kings with the beast.”)

4 The woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet, and adorned with gold and precious stones and pearls, having in her hand a golden cup full of abominations and the filthiness of her fornication.
5 And on her forehead a name [was] written: MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND OF THE ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH.

6 I saw the woman, (17:5 MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND OF THE ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH) (18the woman whom you saw is that great city which reigns over the kings of the earth. “Babylon)

drunk with the blood of the saints and with the blood of the martyrs of Jesus. And when I saw her, I marveled with great amazement.
7 But the angel said to me, “Why did you marvel? I will tell you the mystery of the woman (17:5 MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND OF THE ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH) (18 the woman whom you saw is that great city which reigns over the kings of the earth. “Babylon) (17:3And I saw a woman sitting on a scarlet beast [which was] full of names of blasphemy (“Allah”- “Praise “Allah” – worship (acknowledges his power)), having seven heads and ten horns)

1/5/16 http://www.timesofisrael.com/in-the-iran-saudi-arabia-conflict-a-clash-of-civilizations/ The cold war between the two regional powers is likely to heat up, reviving an age-old sectarian war between Sunni and Shiite Islam in which every country and group in the Middle East will have to choose a side.
Consider the list: Lebanon, where for more than a year and a half there has been no president, partly because of the tension between Saudi Arabia and Iran; Yemen, where a civil war is being waged with the direct intervention of Saudi forces and Iranian advisers; Syria, of course, where Iran’s Revolutionary Guards are fighting militias funded by Riyadh; Iraq (which is in many ways similar to Syria in that regard); and even the West Bank, where the Iranians give financial support to the Islamic Jihad, to the A-Sabireen movement in Gaza and, to a limited extent, to Hamas.
And indeed, nearly all the actors in the Middle Eastern arena now understand that the Iranian declarations are not hollow and that Tehran will try to give them substance in the form of an attack on the Saudi kingdom.
Any revenge attack via Shiite actors will draw a Saudi response. Which means, as the London-based site Al Araby Al Jadeed wrote Monday, the cold war will heat up suddenly into a more much more dangerous confrontation between the two countries.
It has to be said that this crisis, which is likely to lead to a clash of the two civilizations, Shiite and Sunni, does not come as much of a shock.
Hamas is not alone. From now on, the name of the game in our region is that every country or organization will have to choose a side. The Israeli-Arab conflict no longer interests decision-makers in Riyadh or Cairo; rather the battle for the future of the Middle East between Shiites and Sunnis occupies center stage.
Almost 1,400 years have passed since the first battles broke out within the Muslim world between the inheritors of the Prophet Muhammad, which led to the schism between Shiites and Sunnis, and it seems little has changed here: We are returning to the same very old sectarian war, which is likely to lead to severe ongoing bloodshed that will once again shape the face of the region.
1/5/16 http://defensetech.org/2016/01/04/u-s-navy-plans-to-fly-first-drone-swarm-this-summer/ The U.S. Navy is a leader in the area of swarm warfare, (LOCUST) the threat has been analyzed in a number of papers from the Naval Postgraduate School analyze the threat. Some of these are classified, but a 2012 paper by Loc Pham, “UAV Swarm Attack”  is open and makes uncomfortable reading.
Chung is staging a contest for swarms of small drones carry out simulated battles as a way of evaluating tactics and technology. His basic scenario is a 50-versus-50 encounter in which the Blue defenders attempt to stop Red attackers from getting through. Nobody knows much about drone-versus-drone combat yet, especially on this scale. How much autonomy do the drones need? How can the swarm commander stay in control in a fast-moving action?  How do quality and quantity balance out in battling swarms?
With manned aircraft, the pilot’s life counts for a lot; but swarming drones are expendable and high “casualties” do not matter. This is a very different world to the dogfights we have seen before.
The battles will be fought with small drones even cheaper than those used in LOCUST, but the tactics they discover may shape the future of warfare.
When a swarm of drones heads for an American carrier some time in the future, they might be intercepted by a defensive swarm. What happens next — whether the aircraft on the carrier’s deck are destroyed, or whether the attackers are beaten off — will depend on which side has the best grasp of an entirely new form of warfare.

HAS THE DRAGON GIVEN ISIS HIS POWER, HIS THRONE, AND GREAT AUTHORITY?
Following the News of the Scarlet Coloured
Beast:

***5/16/17 http://www.debka.com/article/26055/Hizballah-rush-1-000-troops-to-S-Syrian-borders The pro-Iranian Hizballah Tuesday, May 16, rushed 12 companies of 1,000 fighters to the Homs, Daraa and Quneitra (Golan) regions of southern Syria to block off the entry of “US-backed militants” from Jordan through the Al-Tanf border crossing. On Sunday, May 14 – as first revealed by DEBKAfile’s military sources – US, British and Jordanian special operations forces entered southern Syria in an operation for saving Syria’s southern borders from a grab by pro-Iranian forces that was timed for the run-up to US President Donald Trump’s visit next week..
Iranian military sources explained Tuesday that southern Syria was under threat of a combined US, Jordanian, Israeli assault and that both Moscow and Tehran had offered Syrian President Bashar Assad any assistance his army might need for repelling this assault. Those sources also revealed that Iranian Revolutionary Guards troops had begun moving reinforcements to the Syrian-Iraqi border.
For the background to his scenario, read DEBKAfile’s Monday report:
US special forces, together with British and Jordanian elite troops, moved into southern Syria late Sunday, May 14. They were acting to counter the Syrian-Iranian scheme to nullify the American plan for posting Jordanian forces in southeastern Syria, which timed for the days before US President Donald Trump’s trip to the Middle East.
The US-led armored force with British and Jordanian units crossed from northern Jordan through the Tanf Border-Crossing between the Hashemite Kingdom, Iraq and Syria, and took up positions capable of consolidating their control of the main road between Palmyra and Baghdad. Some of their moves were coordinated with Israel.

This push aimed at countering the drive in the last few days by hundreds of Syrian troops, Iranian-backed Shiite militias and Hizballah’s Radwan special forces, with tanks and heavy equipment, to take over the town of Sabaa Biyar. Located in sparsely desert territory, this town lies 110km west of the Syrian-Iraqi border, 95km north of the Syrian-Jordanian border and 128km east of Damascus.
Its high strategic importance for Tehran, Damascus and Hizballah lies in its command of the border between Syria, Iraq and Jordan and of Highway No. 1 which links the Jordanian capital of Amman with Baghdad.
DEBKAfile’s military sources explain that Damascus and Tehran acted to pre-empt the US-Jordanian-Israeli military operations along the Israeli and Jordanian borders with Syria, lest they lead to the carving out of US-controlled security zones in southern Syria.
Our military sources add that Moscow too eyes the new US-led military movements with mistrust, in view of its potential impact on the Russian plan for four ceasefire zones in Syria, in cooperation with Iranian and Turkish forces. The Russians are accordingly feeding Tehran and Damascus intelligence on the US-led movements.
On Sunday, too, the Israeli Defense Forces launched a large-scale military exercise in the Galilee and Golan regions close to its borders with Syria and Lebanon. The war game may well run over its final date in order to keep a substantial military force poised on along Israel’s northern borders, in case of attempts to disrupt the Trump visits to Saudi Arabia and Israel from May 22 to May 24.
Other military movements in the region this week were taken by the Iraqi army and Iraqi Shiite militias under the command of Iranian Revolutionary Guards officers. Iran continued to pour additional troops into Damascus through the Baghdad-Damascus highway, on the one hand, while, on the other, Iraqi Prime Minister Haidar al-Abadi offered Washington two of his army’s divisions, which would be sent into Syria to support US military operations in the southeast.
For the time being, the Trump administration’s plans for an offensive against the Islamic State appear to have been put on a back burner.

This will be the fourteenth Russian observation flight under the Treaty on Open Skies in 2017, Ryzhkov added.
The Treaty on Open Skies was signed in March 1992 and became one of the major confidence-building measures in Europe after the Cold War. It entered into force on January 1, 2002, and currently has 34 states parties, including Russia and most NATO members such as the United States.

Russia, Turkey and Iran, the guarantor states of the Syrian ceasefire, which coordinated the memorandum on establishment of four safe zones in the country, consider that in the future this practice will be spread across the whole Syrian territory, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said.
Commenting on the recent meeting with US State Secretary Rex Tillerson and US President Donald Trump, Lavrov noted that “this initiative was at the center of the agenda, which had been proposed by Donald Trump at the early stage of his presidency — the idea of creation of safe or de-escalation zones, where there will be no hostilities, except against terrorists.”
“As you know… several days ago, at the meeting in Astana, Russia, Turkey, Iran, the Syrian government and the armed opposition coordinated the memorandum, which sets such zones in four Syrian districts, meaning that this practice will be then extended to the rest part of the Syrian territory,” Lavrov said in the air of Channel One on Sunday.
During the fourth round of Astana talks on Syrian reconciliation, held on May 3-4, Russia, Turkey and Iran signed a memorandum on establishment of four safe zones in Syria. The four zones span the northwestern Idlib province and parts of the neighboring Latakia, Hama and Aleppo, the north of the central Homs province, Eastern Ghouta near Damascus, as well as southern Daraa and Quneitra regions. The memorandum came into force on May 6.
On May 10, Lavrov met with Trump at the White House and held talks with Tillerson, during which they discussed Syria, Ukraine and bilateral relations.

According to US Joint Special Operations Command reports, elements of the Iraqi elite Counter Terrorism Service overwhelmed the Ureibi and Rifaie districts of Mosul in the early morning hours on Sunday, bringing the battle to reclaim the Iraqi town from Daesh extremists close to the end.
Daesh fighters, according to Reuters, remain in only a few ever-shrinking districts on the western side of the town, including the historic district of the Old City, where it is expected that the extremists will be forced to surrender or die.
“Daesh is drawing its last dying breath,” asserted Lieutenant General Qasim Nazzal, the commander of the ninth division, speaking with Iraqi state television on Sunday.
5/13/17 https://sputniknews.com/middleeast/201705131053567671-yemen-hudaydah-attack-displacement/ If the Yemeni port city of Al Hudaydah, which is controlled by the Houthi rebels, comes under attack, at least 400,000 people will flee the city, further complicating the under-resourced humanitarian response, the UN International Migration Agency (IOM) said Friday.
Yemen’s civil war between the internationally recognized government of President Abd Rabbuh Mansur Hadi and the Houthi movement backed by army units loyal to former President Ali Abdullah Saleh erupted in March 2015. Shortly after the outbreak of the conflict, the Saudi-led coalition of mostly Persian Gulf countries launched airstrikes against the Houthis at Hadi’s request.
The UN Office for Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA) characterizes the situation in Yemen as “the largest humanitarian crisis in the world,” with 18.8 million people in need of humanitarian or defense assistance, including 10.3 million who require immediate aid to save or sustain their lives.

The Arctic Council includes Canada, Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway, Sweden, the Russian Federation and the United States. While this international body cannot make any binding decisions, it provides information to help governments craft their policies, according to Marin Forsius, chairman of the council’s Arctic Monitoring and Assessment Programme working group.
“You need a rapid implementation of this Paris Agreement. It would make a big difference to the Arctic and the whole globe. It will be important that all countries implement this agreement and go even further,” he said.
During his presidential campaign, Donald Trump insisted that climate change is a Chinese hoax, and called for the US to withdraw from the 2015 Paris Agreement on carbon gas emissions.
According to Dr. Chai Qimin, a director at the National Centre for Climate Change Strategy and International Cooperation of China, doing so would cost US a diplomatic price, as it would affect talks at the G7 and G20 groups of wealthy nations.
5/11/17 https://sputniknews.com/politics/201705111053484891-south-korea-north-president-peace/ South Korea has a new president whose policy is widely anticipated to mark a major shift towards cooperation with North Korea. Hyun Lee of the Solidarity Committee for Democracy and Peace in Korea spoke with Radio Sputnik about whether such expectations are justified.
​Moon is a former chief-of-staff to the late President Roh Moo-hyun, who was a follower of his predecessor, Kim Dae-jung, the author of the so-called Sunshine Policy, one of engagement with North Korea. Moon has stated that he will resume the Sunshine Policy, after it was abandoned a decade ago.
“The question is whether the United States, the Trump administration will allow room for Moon to lead in terms of the alliance with North Korea,” Lee said. “And if not, then whether Moon will actually stand up to the US.
5/9/17 http://english.ahram.org.eg/News/268453.aspx Liberal politician Moon Jae-in decisively won South Korea’s presidential election on Tuesday, an exit poll showed, an expected victory that would end nearly a decade of conservative rule and bring a more conciliatory approach toward North Korea.
Moon’s victory would end months of political turmoil that led to parliament’s impeachment of conservative former President Park Geun-hye over an extensive corruption scandal, which a court upheld in March. Park became the first democratically elected leader in South Korea to be removed from office, triggering a snap election to choose her successor.
Climbing a temporary stage set up in the main square in downtown Seoul, a beaming Moon surrounded by his Democratic Party leaders, vowed to usher in a new era for a country badly bruised by the scandal.
“I will make a just, united country,” he told a crowd gathered at midnight to see the former human rights lawyer who entered politics just five years ago. “I will be a president who also serves all the people who did not support me.”

Moscow said the US, the UN and Saudi Arabia also support the idea. However, it is unclear whether all the rebel groups will abide by the “de-escalation” mandated in those zones because theyreject Iran’s involvement as a guarantor. The US is also skeptical about Iran’s role. An official commented that Iran had “only contributed to the violence, not stopped it.”

**5/3/17 http://www.debka.com/article/26038/Putin-Trump-discuss-Iranians-on-Israel%E2%80%99s-border Putin & Trump discuss Iranians on Israel’s border.
Israel was seriously dismayed Wednesday, May 3, when first reports reached Jerusalem about the telephone conversation between Presidents Donald Trump and Vladimir Putin Tuesday, during which Trump agreed to consider Putin’s plan for “de-escalation zones” in Syria, in place of the American security zones proposal. The Russian president’s plan includes the posting of Iranian military officers as co-monitors for those zones, one of which is to be located on the Syrian-Israeli border.
President Trump described the conversation as “Very good.”
The four “de-escalation zones” proposed would be situated at:
1. The northwestern province of Idlib up to the Turkish border;
2. The central Syrian province of Homs (where also the Al-Shariat air base hit by US Tomahawks last month is located);
3. The East Ghouta suburb of Damascus (including also a big military airfield);
4. The Southern region along Syria’s borders with Jordan and Syria.
The Russian president explained that the “guarantor countries” – i.e. Russia, Turkey and Iran – would appoint the monitors for the de-escalation zones.
DEBKAfile’s military and intelligence sources report that Israel was deeply concerned to discover that President Trump had nodded to Putin going forward with his plan, despite Iran’s active involvement. He was even ready to send a US official for the first time to the fourth round of the Syrian peace talks between the Syrian government and opposition in Astana Wednesday, although this process is jointly sponsored by Russia, Turkey and Iran. Stuart Jones, acting assistant Secretary of State, was sent to attend the meeting in the Kazakh capital as an observer, thereby elevating the former American representation from ambassador..
This development caused Israeli disquiet on a number of grounds:
a) The Iranian monitors for the new zones will sit directly opposite the Israeli border. Notice has gone out to Washington and Moscow that the Israeli government will on no account countenance an Iran military presence along its border.
b)  Israel also eyes with mistrust the possible deployment of Russian and Turkish offices along its border with Syria.
c)  Declaring eastern Damascus a protected zone would obstruct Israel aerial operations for keeping Iranian air shipments of advanced weapons via Syria out of Hizballah’s hands. Iran would be able to renew its shipments under full protection.
You can read more about the Russian and American “zones” for Syria in the coming issue of DEBKA Weekly out Friday, May 5. To subscribe to this publication, click here.
d)  There were also some misgivings in Israel about the way National Security Adviser H.R. McMaster characterized President Trump’s approach to foreign policy, shortly before Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas arrived at the White House on Wednesday.
“The president is not a super-patient man,” he said. He does not have time to “debate over doctrine, and instead seeks to challenge failed policies of the past with a businessman’s results-oriented approach,” McMaster said.
The trouble is that Middle East issues, such as the Syrian conflict and Israeli security, demand patience and rather more than a businessman’s results-oriented approach, else they may lead to such potentially disastrous consequences as an Iranian military presence that is far too near and dangerous for Israel to countenance.

Turkish airstrikes on Kurdish YPG and PKK groups in Iraq and Syria seem to risk widening the rift between Ankara and Washington. Could they lead to a greater conflict – or just the opposite?
Turkey’s raids on Kurdish positions both in Syria and Iraq reflect an aggressive strategy on the part of Syria’s northern neighbor, while Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan seeks to recreate the Ottoman Empire and once again become the top Middle Eastern power.
Turkey is NATO’s second largest military, Shakdam noted, and the US maintains that NATO is not involved in Syria. According to her, Turkey’s behavior challenges US authority within the alliance — a sign of the alliance’s weakening from within.
5/3/17 https://sputniknews.com/middleeast/201705031053221249-iranian-expansion-bad-russia/ Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu claims that the Iranian “expansion” in the Middle East region poses a threat to Russia.
“We are concerned over the axis Russia-Iran. Of course, Russia has many explanations of its behavior: it wants to prevent the victory of the Daesh [Islamic State, outlawed in Russia], to defeat it. But, of course, it does not mean that we are ready to change the Daesh for Iran, so that Hezbollah or Shia militias use the Syrian territory, the Syria part of the Golan Heights to attack us,” Netanyahu said adding that permanent military presence of Iran and its “satellites” in Syria is unacceptable for Israel.
Russia and Iran are cooperating on settling the Syrian conflict, being mediators of the Astana talks on the Syrian reconciliation. Both countries support Bashar Assad as the legitimate president of Syria.

“The Iranian regime adheres to the extremist ideology, that is why it is impossible to reach mutual understanding with it … There is no common ground between us and the Iranian regime,” the deputy crown prince said on Tuesday.
From his point of view, the main target for Tehran is Saudi Arabia, not Syria, because Iran wants to control the Muslim holy sites in Mecca.
5/2/17 http://www.debka.com/newsupdatepopup/20499/Libya%E2%80%99s-two-rival-leaders-hold-first-meeting-in-Abu-Dhabi Libyan commander Khalifa Haftar went back on his resolve not to meet his rival, Fayez Seraj, head of the UN-backed government Fayez Seraj, and sat down with him Tuesday in the United Arab Emirates. Regional and Western powers have been pushing the two to open and renegotiate the UN-mediated agreement that led to the creation of Seraj’s Government of National Accord (GNA). The deal was an attempt to end Libya’s turmoil since a NATO-led force toppled Muammar Gaddafi in 2011. Haftar is the dominant figure in eastern Libya, where local factions rejected the GNA, contributing to its failure to expand its power in Tripoli and beyond. 

 

(1)Babylon (Scofield, C. I. “Scofield Reference Notes on Isaiah 13″. “Scofield Reference Notes (1917 Edition)”. <http://www.studylight.org/com/srn/view.cgi?book=isa&chapter=013&gt;. 1917.) The city, Babylon is not in view here, as the immediate context shows. It is important to note the significance of the name when used symbolically. “Babylon” is the Greek form: invariably in the O.T. Hebrew the word is simply Babel, the meaning of which is confusion, and in this sense the word is used symbolically. (1) In the prophets, when the actual city is not meant, the reference is to the “confusion” into which the whole social order of the world has fallen under Gentile world-domination. (See “Times of the Gentiles,” Luke 21:24Revelation 16:14Isaiah 13:4 gives the divine view of the welter of warring Gentile powers. The divine order is given in Isa. 11. Israel in her own land, the centre of the divine government of the world and channel of the divine blessing; and the Gentiles blessed in association with Israel. Anything else is, politically, mere “babel.” (2) In Revelation 14:8-1116:19 the Gentile world-system is in view in connection with Armageddon; Revelation 16:1419:21 while in Rev 17, the reference is to apostate Christianity, destroyed by the nations Revelation 17:16 headed up under the Beast ; Daniel 7:8Revelation 19:20 and false prophet. In Isaiah the political Babylon is in view, literally as to the then existing city, and symbolically as to the times of the Gentiles. In the Revelation both the symbolical- political and symbolical-religious Babylon are in view, for there both are alike under the tyranny of the Beast. Religious Babylon is destroyed by political Babylon Revelation 17:16 political Babylon by the appearing of the Lord Revelation 19:19-21. That Babylon the city is not to be rebuilt is clear from ; Isaiah 13:19-22Jeremiah 51:24-26,62-64. By political Babylon is meant the Gentile world-system. (See “World,” ; John 7:7Revelation 13:8) It may be added that, in Scripture symbolism, Egypt stands for the world as such; Babylon for the world of corrupt power and corrupted religion; Nineveh for the pride, the haughty glory of the world. (Scofield, C. I. “Scofield Reference Notes on Isaiah 13.″)
