Turkey’s Erdogan Strengthening Incitement Against Israel

Is this the Christian Anti-Christ?In a tour of the so-called Arab Spring countries, Turkey’s Prime Minister Erdogan, in a speech in Tunisia, stepped up the anti-Israel rhetoric by telling the Tunisian people that Turkey is planning on taking a leading military role in the eastern Mediterranean.  Erdogan told Tunisians on Thursday his country could have frigates and assault vessels in the eastern Mediterranean “at any time” to ensure freedom of movement


“Israel will not be able to move in the eastern Mediterranean as it wishes,” Erdogan said at a joint news conference with his counterpart, Interim Prime Minister Beji Caid el Sebsi. “It will see our determination in this regard.”  Israel has chosen not to respond to the implied threat against Israeli interests.

Erdogan who won 50% of the vote in Turkey’s parliamentary elections  back in May, acussed the opposition party of being involved with a anti-democratic, pro-Israeli conspiracy –

 “The international media, because they are backed by Israel, wouldn’t be happy with the continuation of the AK Party government,” he said, according to the state-run Anatolian news agency. “The international media, because they are backed by Israel, wouldn’t be happy with the continuation of the AK Party government.”

As the September 23rd bid for Palestinian statehood draws near, Israel finds itself further and further isolated and without friends.  As we draw near to the beginning of the Jewish New Year 5772, what can be only understood as a ‘Convergence’ is taking place.  The rabbi’s teach, as we have noted on our blog many times that the term, time of trouble, in Hebrew has the gematria (numerical value) of 772 and that they also have understood that the Final Redemption would either start or be completed on a Hebrew year of 772 (3772, 4772, 5772…).  It is most noteworthy to understand that Mayan Calendar end date of 2012 has been known to the holy rabbi’s for a long time. It appears that biblical period known as the “Time of Jacob’s Trouble” is the ‘Jewish 2012’ which starts in two weeks on Rosh Hashana, September 28th.

The prophecies of the End of Days may be upon us

There are numerous theories about who is Gog v’Magog, some which have been posting on this blog previously.  There are those who believe that Gog is the Prince (leader) of Turkey and have written extensively on the subject and have taught that we should watch Turkey.

“Gog” is known to be an Anatolian name. It is reasonable to identify him with Gogis (seventh century b.c.e.), king of Lydia, who is called Gugu in the chronicles of Ashurbanipal. Such personage would have been known to the Prophet Ezekiel, who took him as reference in order to point out a determined geographic area: Asia Minor. Precisely such is the area (Anatolia, Asia Minor) that his prophecy under five names (Magog, Meshekh, Tuval, Gomer and Togarmah) intends to make clear. These people were well known to the prophet, and this seems clearly to be the best possible interpretation. [Source –http://www.imninalu.net/G&M.htm]

This interpretation should not be discarded.  It was the Turkish Ottoman Empire that held power for many centuries intil 1917.  The Ottoman Empire was the government of the Islamic Caliphate, which according to Muslim Prophecy is destined to be risen up again.  Erdogan’s tour of the Arab Spring countries may be the beginning of a consolidation of power that may very well culminate in a new Caliphate.  Time will certainly tell.

This very well may be the beginning of the time of redemption, so it is imperative that we seek out HaShem while He may be found as Tanakh tells us.  And while all this sword rattling and threats is very disturbing, yet intriguing, our response to it should be what Judaism has always taught.  Our duty is to commit ourselves to teshuvah, to seek out our own sins and shortcomings, all the while praying for the peace of Jerusalem and the time when Israel is restored to it’s former glory.

The Distant Beat of an Ominous War Drum – Part 1

The Land of MagogWith the events of the last few weeks focusing upon Prime Minister Netanyahu’s visit to the US and his historic speech to the United States Congress, few people know about the build-up in tensions between Pakistan and the US.  China has given the USA and ultimatum which has send tremors rippling through the political climate of Central Asia and the West.  It appears Pakistan is enlisting the aid of China to guard itself against the US/India alliance.  Pakistan is concerned that the US is preparing for the possibility of taking control of their nuclear forces.

In 2010, international media reports revealed that more than 11,000 Chinese troops have been stationed in Gilgit Baltistan, an ethnically different region in Pakistan that had traditionally been part of Jammu & Kashmir. Chinese military engineers have previously helped Pakistan, but this time the Chinese soldiers are building concrete residential houses and are opening branches of Chinese banks.

In 2011, it was revealed that the presence of the Chinese troops is not limited within Gilgit Baltistan but they have moved into Pakistani Kashmir along India.

In May 2011, Indian intelligence agencies reported that they have “credible evidence” that Chinese troops are also based in the Pakistani side of Jammu & Kashmir, which is divided by the Line of Control (LoC) between Pakistan and India.

Is There a Link Between China and the Gog Magog War(s)?

In the Tanakh, China is called – Sin.  It’s gematria is 120 (not using the sofit form of the Nun).  China has a long standing relationship with the Islamic Republic of Iran.  China has been helping them since the 1980’s with their nuclear program under the supposed umbrella of peaceful usage.  Iran’s president, Ahmadinejad  also has a gematria value of 120.   In Gematria Ketana, the zero is dropped making it the value of 12, which is the gematria of GOG.  In Daniel 7:25 it states that an evil leader (Armelius) will arise to harass and dominate Israel for a time, times and half a times or 3 1/2 years (US President Obama is a good candidate).  The word time in the last day prophecy is and also equals 120 (12).

Kesses HaSofer writes that the Mongols are identified with the land of Magog, a descendant of Japheth, the first born of Noah. HaSofer also cites Arab writers who refer to the

The Land of Magog

The Land of Magog

Great Wall of China as Al-Magog.  Magog in Cantonese is used to refer to America oddly enough.

Some identify Magog with Kermania (Germania).  Rabbi Yehi’el Tzvi Hirshenzon זצ”ל,book  named “Seven Wisdoms” (1883, שבע חוכמות), states that Magog or the land of Kermania is south east of Babylon, and you can find it in the map of the Greek Rulers, in the south of Kermania Desert to the east of the tongue of the Persian Sea. One must not confuse the Persian Germania with the European Germania that the Talmud refers to as Edom’s Germania.

So the land that our Sages called “Germania is Persian land in the area of the Persian Gulf, that swallows an area called  “Baludshistan”, and that land is bordering in the east with the Indus River, and in the north with the Himalayas. In today’s Iran there is a big province called Kerman, with population of over two million people. The capital of the province is also called by this name, and today more than 400,000 people live there. This province, Kerman, that was probably the original land of Magog, includes many archaeological cities, that their timings matches more or less the period of the end of The Biblical Flood.

The region named Baluchistan is actually divided today between three countries: Iran, Pakistan and Afghanistan. In western Pakistan there’s also a province names Baluchistan, next to the Iranian Baluchistan.

For more information on this intriguing subject see HaShem 1.net who brings many more historical facts to the discussion and is a great find.

China has now aligned itself with Gog and has put boots on the ground in Kashmir and Pakistan.  This situation could become extremely tense very quickly.  Another player in this prophetic scheme, from an Islamic perspective is the Army of the Black Flags coming from Khorusan (Iran, Afghanistan, Pakistan) in the hands of the Pashtuns who call themselves Bani Israel and may very well be remnants of the 10 Tribes.

Barak Hussein Obama – A Man of Destiny

In a speech to the American Israeli Political Action Committee (AIPAC) on Sunday morning, President Obama tried to back track on some of his remarks on Thursday at the State Department where the President said that, “The borders of Israel and Palestine should be based on the 1967 lines with mutually agreed swaps, so that secure and recognized borders are established for both states.” Stung by an outburst of condemnation and criticism for his statement and a stern lecture from Prime Minister Netanyahu, the President attempted to calm the controversy byre-stating America’s strong support for the state of Israel, and adjusting his comments on the creation of a Palestinian state based on the 1967 borders in the context of “mutually agreed swaps” of land that would alter those borders substantially.

But the damage is already done and the so called cat is out of the bag, so to speak.

While all this is going on , I believe it is important to state the obvious and identify who this man is.  Barak Obama is a man with a destiny.  That destiny will have a devastating effect on Israel and those who align themselves with her.  People like you.

Who is Barak Obama?

He will speak words against the Most High

Before I continue, I must state that biblical prophecy is not set in stone.   Repentance goes a long ways to annul the negative aspects of a prophecy.  But personally I believe we may be past all that, given the state of affairs of the world today.  The Torah codes within the Hebrew text establish only potential outcomes and can be nullified if heartfelt repentance or change of heart occurs.

In May of 2007, when it looked like Hillary Clinton would be the democratic nominee for president, Joel Galllis and Dr. Robert Wolf predicted that Barak Obama, who had yet to win a primary, would be the next US president based on their research into biblical prophecies.  The scholars show that the numerical equivalent of “Barack Hussein Obama” in gematria – the practice of finding the numerical value of letters and creating associations between words and phrases – is 501. In August 2008, the scholars elaborate that this number is associated with the “end of days” and two factors that they say the Torah indicate would trigger the apocalypse: the rise of Islam and the fact that Jews are bring about their own fall – by overwhelming helping to elect Obama.  The two Jewish scholars also note that 501 is the value of  the work of our hands, במעשה ידיכם – referring to HaShem being angry with American Jews for helping elect Obama. 501 is also the value of Ishmaelites  ישמעאלים a reference to the Muslims

There is also an EDL code in Ezekiel 38:1-2, concerning Gog.  In the Hebrew text is a 7 letter skip that spells out the name Obama in Hebrew.  (See our reprint of the original article – Obama and Gematria, on our Obama Page).

There’s also another connection in Hebrew between Barak Obama and Armelius. If one calculates the gematia of both names, they come out to 357.
Here’s the spelling in Hebrew:
ברק אובאמה

Note that the gematria for Messiah (Mashiach) is 358.  Many of his fans believe he is the Messiah but as you can see that he just doesn’t measure up.

Armelius is a powerful and evil ruler who will arise during the time of the final redemption.  He will persecute Israel and attempt to destroy her.  Some Jewish sources say that he is the son of Satan, birthed from a stone (possibly the black stone of the Kaaba in Mecca?).  The Midrash Milkhamot HaMashiach the text states that this evil ruler is the one whom the Christians call the Anti-Christ.  In Jewish sources he is called Armelius and is the leader of Edom, the king of Romi (Rome/Europe/US).

Jewish writings speak of this evil ruler as:

1. A man unsuitable to rule will be be brought into power in the Last Days.

2. His ego will know no bounds.

3. People will be taken in by his charisma and power of speech.

4.  He will claim to be a Christian, but is not.

5. He will the representative of a evil world body which will claim to represent the true Messiah of Israel (Islam).

6. He will set himself up as a Messiah figure. Certainly there is no lack of evidence that Obama is seen as a Messiah figure among many of the foolish people in America and to lesser extent the world at large.

The Holy Zohar even gives us a short description of this leader:

After the last King of Persia goes out and speaks against Edom for three years in succession…a man who is the least among the kings, and is the son of a maid who washes clothes in a tub…he is very tall, has a long face and a wide forehead, thin, thin thighs.

This seems to be talking about our times.  Ahmadinejad very well could be the last king of Persia (Iran) and has on many occasions spoken out against the USA (Edom) at the United Nations.  The physical description of course matches President Obama to a tee.

Joel Gallis and Dr Robert Wolf state in their article:

  “Daniel 7 (25) deals with the last king of the 4th beast of exile who will humble 3 other kings. Rav Saadia Gaon stated that the 3 kings or leaders who will be humbled, are from Israel, Greece (representing Europe), and Yishmael (representing the Arab nations). This haughty, arrogant king will speak words against G-d and the Jewish People, and he will try to change the times and the law. How interesting is it that this very word, change, is the key word used by Obama in his campaign?”

Obama has certainly brought about tremendous negative changes in our country through legislation and executive orders.  And he is certainly changing the times in which we live.  There is much written about him and his destiny as Amelius. Only time will tell if Obama fulfills all the prophecies about this evil leader.  Thankfully, if Daniel’s  prediction (7:25) is correctly interpreted (according to Jewish commentators), that Obamanation will only be with us for three and one half years before he comes to ruin. I for one will dance and rejoice at his passing.

Rabbi Chaim Vital, the student of the holy ARI, taught usconcerning the passage in Zechariah: “I will gather the  nations against Jerusalem; at the End of Days both Edom and Ishmael will join forces together and come against the Jewish people in Israel. For we find a picture in the Torah that Esau, the son of Isaac, went to Ishmael and took Mahalath, the daughter of Ishmael son of Abraham, for a wife. From here is a sign for future generations that Esau and Ishmael will join forces; as the prophet tells us, they will come together to fight against Jerusalem, and G-d will go out and battle for His people and judge the nations through fire.

President Obama is considered by Muslims throughout the world as a Muslim, as Sharia law states that the a person’s religion is determined through his father – and Obama’s father was a Muslim. Still, his mother was a Christian – i.e., Edom – making him a combination of both Ishmael and Edom. Could this be what the holy text was alluding to when it said that at the End of Days both Ishmael and Edom will join together against the Jewish people? Was this what the Zohar meant when it said that at the end of days Ishmael would rule over the world and Israel? Only time will tell. One thing is for sure: the Redemption process has taken one giant step forward.

May his name be for a curse and his bones be ground to dust.
