      Mubarak in Coma & Saudi King Dead?

      by Tamar Yonah

      Reports: Mubarak is in a coma & the Saudi King is dead.  What's going on here?  Are we watching history unfold a new era in the middle east right before our eyes?  The middle east seems to be spinning with a change in power going on faster than the time it takes this old gal to drink coffee and then run to the powder-room.

      Rumors are, that the Saudi Arabian ruler, King Abdullah bin Abdul-Aziz  is dead.  According to Islam Times.com, "King Abdullah talked with Obama about the situation in Egypt over the phone yesterday. Obama and the King got into a  heated debate about their opinions of what Hosni Mubarak should do. After the phone call sources stated that King Abdullah was furious and then suffered a sudden heart attack."    People are saying that the ball is in their court [Saudi Arabia's] to prove that he is alive.  Were is he? 

      Egyptian President Hosni Barak who stepped down just this last week from a 30 year dictatorship rule, is rumored to have fallen into a coma after his final speech. According to  Al Arabiya News Channel"Egypt's deposed president, Hosni Mubarak, went into a full coma on Saturday night at his residence in the Red Sea resort of Sharm al-Sheikh, an Egyptian newspaper reported on Monday, quoting well-informed sources." 

      It continues, "Rumors had circulated earlier that Mubarak had fainted twice while recording his final speech, which was broadcast on state television on Thursday evening."

      Tunisia has been spun on it's head, Lebanon has seen the Hezbullah terrorists take over their country, and in this month of February we are seeing 'Days of Rage' operations in Yemen, Bahrain, Algeria and now Libya.

      Let us remember who wanted to be key players in the middle east to represent and control the Islamic / Arab nations.  There was Turkey who wished and still wishes, to renew it's once grand Ottoman Empire.  There was Egypt, who considered itself the representative of the Arab League, which was formed in Cairo, in 1945.  Look on older maps, Egypt called itself the United Arab Republic.  The UAR was a union between Egypt andSyria. Two major powers with a long history in the mideast, they became a union that began in 1958 and existed until 1961 when Syria seceded from the union. -The Arabs have trouble getting along with each other, not just with Israel.  And now, look who seems to be growing in power and has its tentacles branched throughout the mid east and South and Central America  ...Iran.   Iran was the once famous Persian Empire, in control of almost the whole world in its time.  It is rearing it's head today. This video below shows an interesting look at Iran who is behind all of this 'movement' in the middle east power shift, and will lead the way once again in the 21st century.

      No Joke: Fire & Death on the Streets of Egypt

      by Tamar Yonah

      One man is on fire (lower left of screen) and a few moments later, another man gets shot and falls in the street as he opens his coat and dares the authorites to shoot. 

      Description of video from Youtube poster:

      First watch out for the burning man. But this is not the problem. Close to the end of the video when the boy dared to challenge the police who is firing on them and he opened his chest for them, and people started to cheer him, the police just shot in cold blood.

      I do not believe for an instant that the revolution in Egypt was spontaneous and stemmed from high food prices and spread because of the twitter/facebook/social network revolution.  Getting people out into the streets is a very difficult thing to do, and it must be planned and funded to be successful.  People need to be organized and brought in to the streets.  Otherwise all you get is a handful of people who can easily be arrested and brought in.  

      If you wanted to get people into the streets to protest something in America or Israel or anywhere in the world, and you decided to instant message or text your friends to show up, how many would come?  Even if they agreed with you and were also angry and really upset by an issue, how many would come?

      People are at meetings, at the dentist, have an appointment they waited weeks to get, need to be somewhere, or are at work and can’t leave.  Or, they are just lazy or afraid to get arrested, and let’s face it, getting arrested in Egypt is no trip to Disney Land.  People ‘disappear’ in dictatorships, nabbed from the streets or their homes, never to be seen again.

      Then again, we see in the news, how other ‘Days of Rage’ are being planned all over the Middle East.  Lebanon had theirs already, and just the last several weeks, had their government swallowed by the Hezbollah terrorists, backed by Iran.  Reports are that days of rage are taking place all the month of  February in Yemen,  Syria ,  Algeria ,  Bahrain,  and even Libya.  Tunisia has already been overturned, add to that Lebanon, and the word on the streets is, if Egypt falls, anyone in the Middle East will fall. 

      You need more than a spark to start an explosion.  The Muslim Brotherhood wants to bring in Sharia.  They have branches all over the middle east.  They hold approx. 20% of the seats in Egypt’s government.  They are backed by Iran.  And Iran would like to be the domineering power in the Middle East/world.  With this revolution, the Egyptian people in the streets, are most likely going to be trading a bad government, for an even worse one.  I do believe, that many of the young people out demonstrating really believe they are fighting for democracy and something good, but I also believe they are being used as patsies for the Muslim Brotherhood and Iran.  Iran, supporting the Hamas leadership in Gaza, the Hezbollah leadership in Iran, and now possibly the new leadership of Egypt.   Iran has its tentacles everywhere. 

      Voting and Counting Votes in a Democratic Election

      Obtaining power through so called democratic elections is not hard to do.   As they say, it’s not who votes, but who counts the votes.  After gaining leadership, it’s not hard to use intimidation to prevent any other people from running against you.  You just throw in a  small ‘mix’ for cosmetics, and then come away with 90% of the vote.

      There’s the joke about Clinton in the 1990s: Bill Clinton visited Mubarak in Egypt and commented on the President’s popularity in Egypt and how he won re-election so easily again and again. “Mubarak,” Clinton asks, “I’m running for re-election. Can you send your advisors to Washington and have them help me run my campaign?” Mubarak agrees, sends his men to the USA, and they campaign. On Election Day, the votes tallied in were:

      90% in favor of re-electing Hosni Mubarak.

      But the overturning of the Middle East is no joke.  Just wait, and after new elections take place in Egypt, ask the patsies of Egypt’s streets.

      The Truth Hurts: They Are Coming to Die ...and to Kill

      by Tamar Yonah

      Warning:  This blog post contains graphic material.

      Over 1,100 hostages.  777 of them were children. Over 380 killed. More than half of the victims were kids.
      "There will be more raids", he [the terrorist] says, "they are not expensive. Beslan cost only 8,000  Euros."

      The Beslan school massacre on Sept. 1st, 2004.  You all must remember it. I spoke about it on my radio show just the other day, how one cannot appease terror.

      Beslan: 1100 people, men, women and mostly children, were rounded up by Muslim Chechen terrorists and held under gun point and explosives in the school's gymnasium where they spent three days in hell before they were blown up and shot to death.  
      The monsters who did this were Chehen Muslim Terrorists.  They planned and executed the attack, knowingly and calculatingly, targeting School Number One (SNO) in Beslan, North Ossetia, in the North Caucasus region of the Russian Federation.  The target wasn't the Russian army, it was innocent men women and children on the first day of school. 

      I will never forget the story that one of the women hostages who survived the ordeal told.  I remember it like this:  When begging for her life and trying to reason with one of the terrorists, she pleaded "What is it that you want?  Please, is it money?  Whatever it is, I am sure that the government will give it to you!"  The terrorist looked at her and responded, " We didn't come here for money, we came here ...to die".

      What do you do with an adversary like that?  How can you negotiate with them?  How can you work at all with them, when their ultimate goal is to meet Allah in the next world and gain their rewards?  There is no talking to them, there is no negotiating with them, there is no appeasing them!  They came to die.

      Please watch this piece on the Beslan School terror attack/hostage crisis.  WARNING: Some scenes are graphic.

      Going back to find the exact quote of the terrorist where he said they came to die, I fell upon some additional information that was NOT reported on in the Western media, and that was of the child rapes that occurred.  In the article, "Sexual Terror: The Untold Stories of Beslan Jihad" by Deborah Schurman-Kauflin PhD,  the Muslim terrorists brutally raped some of the young girls hostages - in a most sadistic and cruel way ...after they shot and killed the biggest and strongest of men hostages [see photo at top of blog post of the men's bodies strewn in a pile].  Not only did the western media not cover the brutal rape reports, but it is written about on internet forum sites that on the 5th anniversary of the attacks,  the words 'Muslim' and  'terrorist' were erased, and instead 'Chechen' & 'Militants' was used as replacements.  No mention of Islam at all. Islam was wiped clean of the crime, yet studies show that the sexual humiliation of victims is their M.O.  Take for instance, the brutal facts released of what other Muslim terrorists did to their victims in the Mumbai terror attacks: sexual assault and mutilation of their hostages.  The thought is very hard to take, but for those who want more info, click HERE.

      We cannot negotiate with monsters who 'come to die'. 

      And today, has the world learned? Not only has terrorism not subsided, it has grown and is not only expected, but excused and justified.  Today, Egypt is being over-turned and most likely it's outcome will be a government of the Muslim Brotherhood, father of the Hamas terrorists. And the world again expects and asks Israel to give in and appease them - for the sake of peace?

      How? How can the freakin' lousy two-faced Jew-hating international community tell Israel it must appease and give in to terrorists, and in this way we will finally achieve peace?  How do Israel's foolish, and perhaps, bought-off corrupt leaders, think they are going to outsmart and  'buy time' in negotiating away the land of Israel?  In the end, we will pay, and we will pay dearly.  And so will the rest of the world in giving into and enabling the terrorists.  "First the Saturday Ppeople, and then the Sunday People." -they say, as they list their victims in order.  Appeasing and feeding this monster that wishes to devour us all will only strengthen it, and be the demise of us.

      Rabbi Kahane, had a keen sense of what the future would be for Israel if it did not accept its role of being a light unto the nations and to face and tell the truth.  He knew that turning our backs on the truth, and ignoring the facts so we could strive to be accepted by the nations, would bring needless suffering to our nation. He would give this parable from the Talmud to warn us what would happen if we chose the foolish path:

      Once there was a king who sent his servant to buy a fish.  The servant returned with a fish that stank.  In fury the king gave the servant a choice of three punishments: Eat the fish, get whipped for the fish, or pay for the fish.  In common with most people, the servant chose not to reach into his pocket and he decided to eat the stinking fish but after two bites the stench made him give up and he decided to get whipped for it.  The pain of the lashes, however, made him stop that, too, and he cried out, I will pay for the fish!

      In the end, the foolish servant ended up having to eat the stinky, spoiled, fish, get painfully whipped , and then in the end, pay for the fish, saddling upon himself all three punishments. If he were wiser, he would have just faced the truth of the situation, dug into his pocket, paid the price, and be done with it, bearing some discomfort.  Sometimes life is painful and there is no escape but to bear some discomfort, but it is much wiser to face that truth, than to endure all three punishments.

      If Israel -and the West, which too is under threat of Islamic imperialism and world dominance, don't face up to the impossibility of living in peace with these modern day Nazi Monsters, then we shall pay a heavy price, three fold.

      Lying to ourselves, when we have already faced the evil of several past terror attacks, will bring about more blood and disaster to ourselves and our children.  We must face up to the truth, even if it is uncomfortbale, even if it hurts.  They said it:  They are coming to die, ...and to kill.

      UFOs Tour Jerusalem

      by Tamar Yonah

      Recently, there were reports of a UFO over Jerusalem's Temple Mount.  (January 28th, 2011)

      Watch these 3 videos.  They are all very convincing.  The question you must tackle now, is what you see, and then what you choose to believe.

      It is very important that you watch ALL 3 videos in order.  This story of the sighting of a UFO was covered on one of Israel's TV news shows, and people are talking about this and sending out emails. 

      Watch this first video, it really is amazing!

      The alien ball of light hovers above Temple Mount, and then slowly moves down, then, a flash of light and then it shoots straight up really fast.  Stay with the video, it get's a little boring, but stay watching.

      Now watch this same video from a tourist who was also filming this sight, right opposite the UFO, near the Temple Mount and Dome of the Rock.

      "Proof Jerusalem UFO video is real. A new video of the UFO over Jerusalem surfaced tonight from a tourist that was filming while on a late night tour of Jerusalem on January 28th 2011. The video is not the clearest because it was dark out, but it catches the same glowing orb that was caught on tape from across town."

      Lastly, watch this.  

      Now, what do you believe?

      Is Obama in on the Uprising in Egypt?

      by Tamar Yonah

      Though it's popular today to take the side of the underdog - or perceived underdog, why does it seem Obama is against Mubarak's more secular regime, and on the side of the revolutionaries who are believed to be backed by the Muslim Brotherhood, a terrorist organization?

      How strange that U.S. President Obama gives a speech (see below) saying he is asking the Egyptian authorities (25 sec. in) to refrain from violence against protestors.  And at (50 sec) he asks the Egyptian government to reverse the actions they've taken to interfere with access to the internet, cell phone service and social networks.  All these 'requests' by Obama de facto strengthen the side of the protestors. 

      Now, to make this perfectly clear, I am not pro Mubarak.  He is a dictator and a snake.  We don't need to ask who he is.  The question we need to ask is, 'Who is behind this revolution?'.  It's certainly not spontaneous.  There was nothing like a 'Rodney King' explosion to rally behind.  No political opposition leader was publicly put to death that would spark a spontaneous uprising.  This had to be planned.  So who planned it?  It's widely believed that the Muslim Brotherhood is behind this.  There is much we need to know about the Muslim Brotherhood, and much we need to know about  President B. Hussein Obama's connections to it, and history with it.

      The Muslim Brotherhood is Egypt's most powerful opposition group.  Their representatives -who run as 'independents' make up about 20% of their parliament.  The Muslim Brotherhood terrorist organization, like the Hamas terrorist organization, operates charities like schools and hospitals and in this way gets hold of the people.  This is how the Hamas rose in stature among the Arabs in Gaza as well.  But let us not be fooled.  Their 'charities' make them no less violent criminal terrorists.  Their 'charity work' is a tactic to get the people behind them. And it works... - until they get into power, and then they abuse and take away the rights of the very same people they represented. The Hamas learned well, because in fact, they began as an offshoot of the Muslim Brotherhood back in the 1970s.  Like father, like son.

      According to Wikipedia: "While studying at university, Osama bin Laden claimed to have been influenced by the religious and political ideas of several professors with strong ties to the Muslim Brotherhood".

      And more here:

      "Al-Hajj Amin al-Husseini ... eventually appointed by the British as Grand Mufti of Jerusalem in hopes of accommodating him, was the leader of the [Muslim Brotherhood] group in Palestine. [He met with Hitler to assist in the Final Solution] Another important leader associated with the Muslim Brotherhood in Palestine was 'Izz al-Din al-Qassam, an inspiration to Islamists because he had been the first to lead an armed resistance in the name of Palestine against the British in 1935.  Under these leaders, many moderate local Arab leaders were assassinated, including King Abdullah I of Jordan, and, from 1921 on, numerous terrorist attacks were perpetrated against Jews, amongst which was the murder of 67 religious Jews, men, women and children, and wounding of many others, in the 1929 Hebron massacre. Al-Hajj Amin al-Husseini led a general uprising against the British from 1936 to 1939; as a Nazi ally he spent the Second World War in Nazi Germany and advocated for and aided their annihilation of the Jews.  In 1945, the group established a branch in Jerusalem, and by 1947 twenty-five more branches had sprung up, in towns such as Jaffa, Lod, Haifa, Nablus, and Tulkarm, which total membership between 12,000 to 20,000.
      Brotherhood members fought alongside the Arab armies during the 1948 Arab-Israeli war..."  

      According to Chris Carter, a research analyst at the Counterterrorism Research Center of the Family Security Foundation, today, the Muslim Brotherhood "has either founded or is linked to most major U.S. Muslim organizations such as the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), the Muslim Students Association (MSA), the Muslim American Society, and the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA). The MB denounced violence back in the 1970's and now claim that they stand for democratic reform, but they support suicide bombings and are tied to international terrorist attacks."  

      Needless to say, the Muslim Brotherhood is banned in Egypt.  The Muslim Brotherhood provides religious backing for Iran's moves in the Middle East, and the current government in Egypt sees Iran as a threat.  And now, it looks like it could be the Muslim Brotherhood (with Iran's backing) that has manipulated and agitated students and other citizenry to go into the streets.  Iran, which has its tentacles already in Lebanon through the Hezbollah terrorists, and has tentacles in Gaza through the Hamas, now wants its tentacles in Egypt, to get access to the Suez canal and the Sinai which borders the Gazan southern border with Egypt.  Having access to this border and/or it's tunnels between Egypt and the Hamas in Gaza, will enable Iran to build up the passage of heavy weaponry into the region that can't be transported so easily through tunnels, to use against Israel.  - Seems everything points to Israel.

      Of course, now, the rioters in Egypt are yelling phrases like, 'We want Democracy' and 'Mubarak Out'.  But in the end, just as the Iranian People's revolution that called for the same thing back in the 70's and which ousted the Shah, they ended up with the Mullahs, Islamic law, and no real democracy.  And Iran is using their money now to build nuclear weapons, and not helping its population.  It also has turned against the West, especially America.  Oh well.

      Now, let's look at Obama, and ask ourselves why he would ask for leniency and a free hand to open communications for the (most likely believed to be backers) Muslim Brotherhood and their patsy supporters.  

      Obama is a Muslim.  His father was a Muslim. It's alleged that Obama's father was himself was a member of the Muslim Brotherhood for 30 years.  Obama's step father was also a Muslim.  B. Hussein Obama studied at a Muslim school as a boy.   When he later became President of the United States, he ran to make a speech in Egypt and stated to his Cairo audience and the entire Muslim world that "the United States is not and never will be at war with Islam".   Why?  How could he make this statement?  Especially after the Sept. 11th attacks, AND the fact that Islam IS AT WAR already with America?

      Why would Obama make these gestures?  Further, why in 2009, would Obama, as president of the United States, meet with the Muslim Brotherhood, a terror group?  See this excerpt from Haaretz:  

      "U.S. President Barack Obama met with members of Egypt's Islamist opposition movement, the Muslim Brotherhood, earlier this year, according to a report in Thursday editions of the Egyptian daily newspaper Almasry Alyoum.  ...

      "According to the report, the members requested that news of the meeting not be publicized. They expressed to Obama their support for democracy and the war on terror.

      The newspaper also reported that the members communicated to Obama their position that the Muslim Brotherhood would abide by all agreements Egypt has signed with foreign countries. ...."

      What did they talk about? 

      Why did they even meet? 

      And why is Obama seemingly siding with the revolution?  

      I think we'd all like to know, one way or the other.
