PROPHECY ALERT: Torah condition for 3rd Temple now met?


The Jerusalem-based Temple Institute has taken on the goal of rebuilding the Third Jewish Temple, regarded by Jews and Christians as a precursor to the coming of the Messiah. The plan is guaranteed to provoke world conflict, since the Islamic Dome of the Rock now sits on the presumed Temple site.  And while the preparations seem to be lining up, a major obstacle remains – the absence of a red heifer, required in the biblical book of Numbers, Chapter 19, for the purification that is essential before worship. Until now, according to the institute. The organization posted a video this month showing what appears to be a perfect red heifer that is being raised at an unidentified location in the United States. “In truth, the fate of the entire world depends on the red heifer,” the institute says. More

 

Chinese Christians Tearfully Sing Hymn as Church Cross Removed


Wenzhou City, China
 – Christians are vowing to stand firm for Christ in the midst of much persecution by government officials in a Chinese province where church buildings continue to be demolished, and where believers in a recent video can be seen bursting into tearful song about the cross and how their sins were washed away by the blood of Jesus as the cross atop their building is forcibly removed. Within a week after pastors and church members from various congregations wrote objections concerning the ongoing abuse in a published letter to the government in Wenzhou City, which is located in the country’s Zhejiang Province, authorities removed the cross on the roof of Yahui Church in the city. Church members were also threatened with harm if they talked to the media or petitioned Beijing, according to a report by International Christian Concern (ICC)The public letter, which the Chinese government has since blocked the content of on websites within mainland China, listed eight reasons why “the anti-church campaign is an abnormally illegal administrative action that is abusing authority and ignoring the rule of law.” More

Mexican Military Chopper Crosses Into US, Shoots At Border Agents


Border Patrol agents in Arizona were reportedly fired upon by a Mexican military helicopter that traveled across the border. KVOA-TV reports that Mexican authorities were conducting a drug interdiction operation when the incident happened early Thursday morning on the Tohono O’odham Indian Nation.

North Korea Threatens ‘Merciless’ Retaliation on U.S. Over Seth Rogen Film

northNorth Korea threatens war over Seth Rogen’s new film The Interview. Looks like North Korea doesn’t find Seth Rogen and James Franco’s new film The Interview – in which the This Is The End stars play two American television workers recruited to try and kill Kim Jong-un — very funny. If the U.S. government doesn’t block the movie’s release, it will face “stern” and “merciless” retaliation, an unidentified spokesman for North Korea’s Foreign Ministry said in state media Wednesday. More


When Alan Haberman came to San Francisco to upend the global economy—which in the end he did—he wasn’t seeking venture capitalists or software engineers. This was the early 1970s, when a computer in every home was still just Steve Jobs’ teenage dream. Anyway, Haberman wasn’t a geek. He was a grocer. According to his New York Times obituary, this mid-level supermarket executive needed to convince some fellow respectable businessmen to follow his lead. Haberman wanted grocery stores to embrace the 12-digit Universal Product Code—better known as the barcode—to create a standardized system for tracking inventory and speeding checkout. He took his fellow execs to a nice dinner. Then, as was the fashion at the time, they went to see Deep Throat. And they liked Haberman’s idea, these guys with wide lapels who changed the business of how Americans bought food—a change that over the past 40 years has come to mean so much more. More

50,000 Assyrians Flee Fighting in North Iraq

assNearly all of the population of Qaraqosh, 50,000 Assyrians, has fled the city amid fighting between ISIS and Kurds. Syrian Catholic Archbishop Mar Youhana Boutros Moshe attempted to negotiate with ISIS and the Kurds to convince them to leave the city, but the negotiations failed. ISIS and the ‘Revolutionary Tribes’ (Sunnis) are set to storm the city. According to Bishop Yousif Habash of the Syriac Orthodox Church in New Jersey, Qaraqosh (also known as Baghdede) is now almost completely abandoned. A source reporting from Qaraqosh told AINA the population has fled to Arbel, Dohuk, Alqosh, Tel Kepe, Telsqop and Ankawa. Monasteries and churches are filled with displaced Christian refugees from Baghdede. There is an urgent need for food, water, medical aid and blankets.More

Vatican may ease rules on sex and marriage


The Vatican has admitted in a review of its guidance that its rigid teaching on issues such as sex before marriage, divorce, contraception and artificial insemination has created a “deep” gap with ordinary Catholics that could be hard to bridge. While upholding a blanket ban on condoms, even in the face of HIV/Aids, the Roman Catholic Church conceded that its opposition to artificial birth control was perceived by many ordinary followers as an intrusion into their personal lives and “an encroachment on the autonomy of conscience”. In a 75-page document released ahead of a major Vatican conference in October, the Church also hinted that it will consider loosening its rules on annulments, making it easier for Catholic couples to dissolve their marriages. More

 

SEAL Team 6 member becomes Pentagon’s poster girl in transgender recruiting


A former member of SEAL Team 6 has become the poster girl for a Pentagon effort to include transgenders — people who have undergone sex-change operations — in the ranks. Kristin Beck, formerly Senior Chief Petty Officer Christopher Beck, spoke recently at several high-profile events at intelligence agencies and the Pentagon to promote the integration of transgenders. “Transgender service in the armed forces, yes it will happen soon,” she said on Twitter. Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel, among the most politically correct Pentagon chiefs of the past several decades, fueled the effort within the Pentagon to integrate transgenders in May when he said the policy of banning transgenders should be reviewed continually. The transgender drive is the latest element of the Obama administration’s social engineering within the U.S. military. More

 

Justice Dept Uses Lesbian Cartoon Characters To Teach Kids About Cell Phone Safety


The Department of Justice has spent $1.2 million on a website which depicts cartoon cellphones engaging in real-life dating scenarios, in an effort to help teens define their “digital line” as it pertains to relationship abuse. The website, ThatsNotCool.com, which is operated through the DOJ’s Office on Violence Against Women, is perhaps the cheesiest government-funded ad campaign in recent memory. The site features a series of cartoon videos as well as “callout cards,” which teens can send to their “textual harassers,” or people who send intrusive text messages. The first video featured on the site, titled “Password,” shows two female cellphone characters sitting on a city bench. One character is typing away on her body, which is also a cellphone keypad. More

China’s DF-41 missile can wipe out 3 US cities in one attack


China’s DF-41 solid-fueled road-mobile intercontinental ballistic missile is capable of wiping out three American cities in just one attack, according to the Kanwa Defense Review, operated by Canadian military analyst Andrei Chang, also known as Pinkov. With an attack range of between 11,500-12,000 kilometers, the article said that the DF-41 missile is capable of reaching any target within the continental United States. From the missile base in northwestern China’s Gansu province, the distance to Washington is 11,856 km, to New York is 11,667 km and to Los Angeles is 11,127 km. From Henan in central China, the distance a missile would travel to reach Washington would be 11,982 km, to New York would be 11,815 km and to Los Angeles would be 10,911 km. More

 

World’s largest maritime exercises kick off in Hawaii; Chinese vessels join for first time


More than one month of naval maneuvers involving the militaries of 22 nations kicked off in Hawaii on Thursday. For the first time, China has sent vessels to participate in the Rim of the Pacific drills that the U.S. Pacific Fleet hosts every two years. Thailand was initially among 23 nations expected to send units to Hawaii for the world’s largest maritime exercises. But it’s no longer doing so after its military orchestrated a coup last month. The Obama administration suspended various assistance and military exercises after a junta took power on May 22. The exercises will include disaster-relief training as well practice countering pirates, clearing mines, landing amphibious ships and searching for submarines. More

Are Islamists rehearsing an attack on our power grid?


You may recall we reported here on threats and an attack to our power grid system in the United States– it wasn’t just an isolated, one-off event. This past Sunday, Israel National News Arutz Sheva carried an op-ed by Dr. Peter Vincent Pry, Executive Director of the Task Force on National and Homeland Security and Director of the U.S. Nuclear Strategy Forum, who says “for the first time in history, a terrorist attack on the electric power grid has blacked-out an entire nation – in this case Yemen.” More

Singapore official warns banks to prepare for Financial Collapse


Well, at least someone gets it. While just about every other central bank on the planet is giving everyone two thumbs up on the economy, the deputy chair of the Monetary Authority of Singapore (Lim Hng Kiang) said last night at a dinner that “an uneasy calm seems to have settled in markets” and that “we remain in uncharted waters.” It was pretty amazing, really, to see such pointed language from a central banking official. Mr. Lim jabbed at the “obvious” risks and said there would be “bumps on the road” ahead. That’s putting it mildly. Warren Buffet once said that ‘only when the tide goes out do you discover who’s been swimming naked.’ (In my mind he says it like ‘nekked’ but I seriously doubt he pronounces it that way…) More

 

Thousands flee Ukraine for Russia as cease-fire nears end


As a shaky cease-fire in the east entered its final hours Thursday, thousands of Ukrainians in cars stuffed with belongings lined up at the border to cross into Russia, some vowing never to return. Many said they were most frightened for their children and desperate to take them to safety. Also on Thursday, four of eight observers from the Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe who were held hostage in eastern Ukraine were released, the organization said in a news release. A commander at the rebel-controlled border post outside the city of Luhansk said 5,000 people had left by evening, joining a stream that he said has continued unabated during the weeklong truce that has failed to end the gunfire and shelling. More

Russia now involved in Iraq


Iraq’s Prime Minister Nouri Maliki has told the BBC that he hopes jets from Russia and Belarus will turn the tide against rebels in the coming days. ”God willing within one week this force will be effective and will destroy the terrorists’ dens,” he said. He said that the process of buying US jets had been “long-winded” and that the militants’ advance could have been avoided if air cover had been in place. Isis and its Sunni Muslim allies seized large parts of Iraq this month. Mr Maliki was speaking to the BBC’s Arabic service in his first interview for an international broadcaster since Isis – the Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant – began its major offensive. More

John Kerry gives Russia ‘hours’ to ease Ukraine crisis


The United States has warned Russia it has only “hours” to prove it is helping disarm Ukrainian insurgents, whose tenuous truce with Kiev is due to expire by the weekend. US Secretary of State John Kerry’s ultimatum was delivered a day before Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko signs the final chapters of an historic EU accord that nudges his country toward eventual membership and pulls it firmly out of Russia’s reach. The West is scrambling to save a temporary ceasefire and nascent peace talks that pro-Russian separatists, who are now threatening the ex-Soviet state’s survival, agreed to at the start of the week. More

King Abdullah calls up Saudi armed forces on high preparedness


Thursday, June 26, the day before US Secretary of State John Kerry was due in Riyadh, King Abdullah summoned a National Security Council meeting “upon the current security events in the region, especially in Iraq,” and ordered “all necessary measures to protect the kingdom against terrorist threats.” This meant a general call-up of military units for a high level of preparedness. debkafile’s military sources disclose that Egypt is assembling an expeditionary commando force to fly to Saudi Arabia and bolster its border defenses. This flurry of Saudi-Egyptian military steps comes in the wake of intelligence gathered by Saudi reconnaissance planes showing Iraqi Al Qaeda-linked Sunni fighters (ISIS) heading for the Saudi border and aiming to seize control of the Iraqi-Saudi crossing at Ar Ar (pop: 200,000). More
