Palestinian victims describe being used as shields by Hamas
Members of a Gaza family whose farm was turned into a "fortress" by Hamas fighters have reported that they were helpless to stop Hamas from using them as human shields. They described how for years Hamas has used their property and homes as shields for military installations from which to launch rockets into Israel, dig tunnels and store arms. According to the victims, those who tried to object were shot in the legs by Hamas.
WHY IS OBAMA SUCH A ARAB-MUSLIM SUPPORTER.AND WORSHIPS EVERY COMMUNIST MUSLIM LEADER THAT COMES TO THE WHITE HOUSE.AND THIS IS THE REASON SO MANY AT THE WHITE HOUSE ARE ARAB-MUSLIMS.
The following is the full text of the comments by Hamas representative Fathi Hammad months before the war, articulating the Hamas ideology to use civilians as human shields for Hamas fighters:"For the Palestinian people death has become an industry, at which women excel and so do all people on this land: the elderly excel, the Jihad fighters excel, and the children excel. Accordingly [Palestinians] created a human shield of women, children, the elderly and the Jihad fighters against the Zionist bombing machine, as if they were saying to the Zionist enemy: 'We desire death as you desire life.'"
1 Gather yourselves together, yea, gather together, O nation not desired;
2 Before the decree bring forth, before the day pass as the chaff, before the fierce anger of the LORD come upon you, before the day of the LORD’S anger come upon you.
3 Seek ye the LORD, all ye meek of the earth, which have wrought his judgment; seek righteousness, seek meekness: it may be ye shall be hid in the day of the LORD’S anger.
4 For Gaza shall be forsaken, and Ashkelon a desolation: they shall drive out Ashdod at the noon day, and Ekron shall be rooted up.(ITS NO ACCIDENT THAT IN THIS GAZA WAR ITS ASHKELON-ASHDOD AND THE MURDERER HAMAS IN GAZA WERE MOST OF THE BOMBING ARE)(THIS IS PROPHECY COMING TO PASS BIGTIME)
5 Woe unto the inhabitants of the sea coast,(GAZA) the nation of the Cherethites! the word of the LORD is against you; O Canaan, the land of the Philistines,(PALESTINIANS) I will even destroy thee, that there shall be no inhabitant.
6 And the sea coast (GAZA) shall be dwellings and cottages for shepherds, and folds for flocks.
7 And the coast (GAZA) shall be for the remnant of the house of Judah;(ISRAEL) they shall feed thereupon: in the houses of Ashkelon shall they lie down in the evening: for the LORD their God shall visit them, and turn away their captivity.(BY THIS PROPHECY I PREDICT ISRAEL WILL RETAKE GAZA SO ISRAELIS AROUND THE WORLD CAN IMMIGRATE THERE AND BUILD HOMES AND LIVE)
29 Rejoice not thou, whole Palestina,(ARABS-PALESTINIANS) because the rod of him that smote thee is broken: for out of the serpent’s root shall come forth a cockatrice, and his fruit shall be a fiery flying serpent.(BOMBS)(WARFARE)
30 And the firstborn of the poor shall feed, and the needy shall lie down in safety: and I will kill thy root with famine, and he shall slay thy remnant.
31 Howl, O gate; cry, O city; thou, whole Palestina,(ARABS) art dissolved: for there shall come from the north a smoke, and none shall be alone in his appointed times.
32 What shall one then answer the messengers of the nation? That the LORD hath founded Zion,(JERUSALEM) and the poor of his people shall trust in it.

17 And, thou son of man, thus saith the Lord GOD; Speak unto every feathered fowl, and to every beast of the field, Assemble yourselves, and come; gather yourselves on every side to my sacrifice that I do sacrifice for you, even a great sacrifice upon the mountains of Israel, that ye may eat flesh, and drink blood.
18 Ye shall eat the flesh of the mighty, and drink the blood of the princes of the earth, of rams, of lambs, and of goats, of bullocks, all of them fatlings of Bashan.
19 And ye shall eat fat till ye be full, and drink blood till ye be drunken, of my sacrifice which I have sacrificed for you.
20 Thus ye shall be filled at my table with horses and chariots, with mighty men, and with all men of war, saith the Lord GOD.
21 And I will set my glory among the heathen, and all the heathen shall see my judgment that I have executed, and my hand that I have laid upon them.

RED HEIFER UPDATE-By Rabbi Chaim Richman-8/19/2014, 1:08 PM-israelnationalnews
Several months ago the Temple Institute was delighted to announce the birth of a perfect red heifer in the USA. This heifer was a proper and fitting candidate for the ‘ordinance of the red heifer’ (Numbers Ch. 19), which is a prerequisite for the restoration of purity and the ultimate resumption of the Divine service in the Holy Temple. The heifer was born to friends of the Temple Institute, who promptly notified the Institute and communicated their intentions to raise the animal in strict accordance with the requirements of Biblical law and ultimately, to donate the heifer to the people of Israel through the Institute.The news of the red heifer’s birth generated tremendous interest internationally and created palpable excitement for many who understood the historical and spiritual significance of the event and its propitious repercussions for Israel and all mankind.The Temple Institute began to make preliminary arrangements for the shipment of the heifer to Israel, as well as provisions for the heifer’s care upon arrival.Unfortunately upon recent inspection it has become clear that Talia, as she is affectionately known, has become disqualified for use for the ordinance of the red heifer and is now unfit according to Biblical law. This is on account of a change of pigmentation in a patch of skin, as well as the appearance of white hairs in the affected area. Changes of this nature are not uncommon occurrences in the bovine world as a heifer matures, a fact that contributes to the rarity of finding a perfectly pure, kosher red heifer.But it can happen, there are perfect red heifers out there, and with G-d’s help the Temple Institute shall continue its search and locate operation. We know that the heifer needed to reestablish purity is out there, or on the way. We ask our friends to keep an eye out, and keep us informed! The past few weeks of planning for the red heifer with our friends in the USA has been a very productive and important experience, in which the Institute geared up for what became a ‘practice drill,’ and in retrospect it is obvious that this was a Divinely-orchaestrated episode which has enabled us to become more prepared and better equipped when the red heifer project becomes a reality.We take this opportunity to thank Talia’s owners, whose great modesty and righteousness prevents them from seeking any public acknowledgment. The Temple Institute also takes this opportunity to thank another dear friend who acted as our trusted liaison, and pledged to contribute the costs of transporting the heifer to Israel.In conclusion, we have learned much from this experience and it has been a great inspiration for the Temple Institute’s work. The Institute continues its research and preparation in anticipation of locating a perfect red heifer in the near future, for the soon rebuilding of the Holy Temple and the resumption of purity, and the restoration of honor of the G-d of Israel.
REBUILT 3RD TEMPLE

27 And he( THE ROMAN,EU PRESIDENT) shall confirm the covenant with many for one week:(1X7=7 YEARS) and in the midst of the week he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease,(3 1/2 yrs in TEMPLE SACRIFICES STOPPED) and for the overspreading of abominations he shall make it desolate, even until the consummation, and that determined shall be poured upon the desolate.
Israel, Hamas Officially Cease Cairo Talks-End to abortive talks as rocket fire continues; both delegations being pulled out of Cairo.By Tova Dvorin-First Publish: 8/20/2014, 7:53 PM / Last Update: 8/20/2014, 8:10 PM-israelnationalnews
Both Israel and Hamas have pulled their delegations out of Cairo, following Hamas's breaching of a six-day long ceasefire and then firing over 130 rockets into Israel in a 24-hour period.Hamas officially declared the talks over on Al-Aqsa TV Wednesday night, then called on remaining Palestinian Arab representatives from Islamic Jihad and Fatah (Palestinian Authority, or PA) to leave as well."We are calling on the Palestinian delegation to withdraw immediately from Cairo and not to return," a spokesman for Hamas's "military wing," the Al-Qassam Brigades, stated."There will be no return to talks after today and any move in this direction will never achieve any result," he added. "The enemy lost a golden chance to reach a ceasefire with limited demands, for which it will pay after today."Transportation Minister Yisrael Katz (Likud) confirmed that Israel had ceased talks as well, and was in the process of pulling out its own delegation, in remarks to Channel 2.
Netanyahu Says Hamas Has Taken 'Worst Hit Since its Inception'-PM, Defense Minister brief press on developments; Netanyahu urges Jewish people to remain united as offensive continues.By Tova Dvorin-First Publish: 8/20/2014, 9:01 PM / Last Update: 8/20/2014, 9:39 PM-israelnationalnews
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Defense Minister Moshe Ya'alon spoke to the press Wednesday, providing direction and developments on the renewed fighting with Hamas."We are taking all measures to complete the campaign and the achievement of the prime goal - deterrence," he said. "We will operate with discretion, responsibility and determination."Netanyahu said that the campaign did not end with Operation Protective Edge in Israel, and that the battle against Hamas is merely an extension of the fight against Hezbollah, Al Qaeda, and Islamic State (formerly ISIS). "One consideration alone is before me - what is good for the State of Israel," Netanyahu said, stressing that this principle "is the only one that guides me in making decisions.""Nothing else [guides me] - nor the left or the right or other interests," he emphasized. "My sole responsibility [now] is for the safety and peace of the citizens of Israel, and accordingly we will continue to act with a sense of responsibility and judgement."Netanyahu said that there were significant victories against Hamas, in a reference both to the airstrikes on the home of terror leader Mohammed Deif and, perhaps, to the foiling of a Hamas coup in the Palestinian Authority (PA) earlier this week."This is the worst hit Hamas has suffered since its inception," Netanyahu said. "We are determined to continue the campaign by all means, and it may be necessary.""Hamas thinks it has exhausted us but the people of Israel are stronger," he added. "We must continue to maintain unity within us the courage and resilience of the people all of this is essential to our national strength and building blocks in achieving the task that we have set before us."Regarding Deif - whose status remains unknown - the Prime Minister cryptically said, "terrorist commanders are a legitimate target, no one is immune."
Prepared for a ground offensive
Defense Minister Moshe Ya'alon noted that the campaign will continue until peace returns to southern and central Israel."I would not advise anyone to trade places with anyone living in the Gaza Strip," Ya'alon stated. The Defense Minister also said that he holds Hamas responsible for all casualties - civilian or otherwise - after it broke a six day-long truce by firing a constant rain of rockets on Israeli civilians. As of Wednesday night, the rocket count is nearing 200 rockets in 48 hours."We will pursue the terrorists of Hamas and the organization's leaders . . . [at] every opportunity that we have," Ya'alon said."I suggest you not be impressed by Hamas's bravado," Ya'alon added, stating that Hamas is very vulnerable and is suffering from huge losses at the moment.Ya'alon emphasized that Operation Protective Edge is conducted responsibly, judiciously, wisely and intelligently and that the government continues to work to ensure Israel's safety."As one who fought all his life for the State of Israel, I keep saying: we will not rest, we will not be silent until we respond to the rocket fire," he said. "We will do so with steadfastness, determination and patience."He noted that Israel is prepared for a long campaign and additional ground offensives.
Security Council Urges Return to Ceasefire Talks-UN Security Council urges Israel and the Palestinian Arabs to return to the negotiating table to quickly agree on a lasting truce in Gaza.By AFP and Arutz Sheva Staff-First Publish: 8/21/2014, 2:16 AM-israelnationalnews
The United Nations Security Council on Wednesday urged Israel and the Palestinian Arabs to return to the negotiating table to quickly agree on a lasting truce in Gaza.In a unanimously adopted statement quoted by AFP, the 15-member council "offered full support to the Egyptian initiative and called upon the parties to resume negotiations to urgently reach a sustainable and lasting ceasefire."The statement drafted by France was agreed after negotiations in Cairo teetered on the verge of collapse amid a fresh flare-up of violence.The measure fell short of a full resolution, but diplomats signaled they would be ready to move toward a stronger response if the Egyptian-led peace track hit a dead end."The urgency today was to respond to the fact that the talks appear to be breaking down and there has been a resumption of hostilities, and it was important for the Security Council to respond to that," said British Ambassador Mark Lyall Grant, whose country holds the council presidency, according to AFP.Earlier this month, Jordan circulated a draft resolution backed by Arab countries that calls for a ceasefire, the lifting of the Israeli blockade of Gaza and the delivery of urgently-needed aid to Gazans.The 15-member Council adopted a statement on July 27 calling for a ceasefire and expressing support for Egypt's mediation efforts after the United States dropped reservations that such a text would single out Israel.The Security Council’s call came as both Israel and Hamas pulled their delegations out of Cairo, following Hamas's breaching of a six-day long ceasefire and then firing over 130 rockets into Israel in a 24-hour period.The Palestinian Authority’s representative to the United Nations, Riyad Mansour, said his side was ready to return to the negotiations in Cairo."We want a sustainable negotiated peace. We want to stop dying. We want the violence to end. In order to do that, Israel must cease its aggression and agree to a deal," Mansour was quoted as having told reporters at UN headquarters in New York.In the statement, the council expressed "grave concern" at the return to hostilities and the loss of civilian lives.It called on the sides to "prevent the situation from escalating and to reach an immediate humanitarian ceasefire" as a first step toward a deal on a lasting truce.UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon condemned the flare-up in violence on Tuesday and called on both sides to reach "an immediate understanding on a durable ceasefire.""The hopes of the people of Gaza for a better future and the hopes of the people of Israel for sustainable security rest on the talks in Cairo," Ban said.
Gaza Terrorists Fire Salvo at Southern Israel-Gaza terrorists fire three rockets fired towards Israel; one intercepted by the Iron Dome over Ashdod.By Elad Benari-First Publish: 8/20/2014, 11:49 PM-israel nationalnews
Terrorists from Gaza fired a barrage of rockets towards southern Israel on Wednesday evening.Shortly after 11:00 p.m., sirens were heard in the vicinity of Ashdod as well as in Sderot and the Sha'ar Hanegev Regional Council.At least three rockets were fired towards the region, one of which was intercepted by the Iron Dome anti-missile system over Ashdod. Two additional rockets exploded in open regions, causing no physical injuries or damages.Earlier Wednesday, the barrage of rockets fired on Israeli civilian populations by Gaza terrorists continued, after the ceasefire was breached the previous afternoon.Shortly after 11 a.m. four rockets fell on the Eshkol Regional Council area, with two of them landing in a local community.Light damage was caused by the missile volley to several vehicles and buildings, and at least one local resident was suffering from shock after the close and powerful blasts.Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu said on Wednesday that the campaign did not end with Operation Protective Edge in Israel, and that the battle against Hamas is merely an extension of the fight against Hezbollah, Al-Qaeda, and Islamic State (formerly ISIS)."One consideration alone is before me - what is good for the State of Israel," Netanyahu said, stressing that this principle "is the only one that guides me in making decisions.""Nothing else [guides me] - nor the left or the right or other interests," he emphasized. "My sole responsibility [now] is for the safety and peace of the citizens of Israel, and accordingly we will continue to act with a sense of responsibility and judgment."
Gaza war rages on, Hamas says Israel tried to kill its military chief-Mohammed Deif, Hamas, Gaza Strip-Reuters-By Nidal al-Mughrabi and Maayan Lubell-aug 20,14-yahoonews
GAZA/JERUSALEM (Reuters) - An Israeli air strike in Gaza killed the wife and infant son of Hamas's military leader, Mohammed Deif, the group said, calling it an attempt to assassinate him after a ceasefire collapsed.Palestinians launched more than 180 rockets on Tuesday and Wednesday, mainly at southern Israel, with some intercepted by the Iron Dome anti-missile system, the military said. No casualties were reported on the Israeli side.Egypt, which has been trying to broker a long-term ceasefire in indirect Israeli-Palestinian talks, said it would continue contacts with both sides, whose delegates left Cairo after the hostilities resumed on Tuesday.But there appeared to be no end in sight to violence that shattered a 10-day period of calm, the longest break from fighting since Israel launched its Gaza offensive on July 8 with the declared aim of ending rocket fire into its territory.Israeli aircraft have carried out more than 100 strikes in the Gaza Strip since Tuesday, Defence Minister Moshe Ya'alon said, the military adding it was "targeting terror sites".Hamas and medical officials said 23 people had died in the latest Israeli raids, including Deif's wife and seven-month-old son. Deif is widely believed to be masterminding the Islamist group's military campaign from underground bunkers.A Hamas official said Deif, head of Hamas's Izz el-Deen al-Qassam Brigades, had not used the targeted house, from whose rubble the bodies of three members of the family that lived there were also pulled out.Abu Ubaida, a spokesman for Hamas's armed wing, said in a televised statement addressing Israel "you have failed and you have missed" Deif in the attack.Chanting "Qassam, bomb Tel Aviv!", thousands of Palestinians later attended the funeral of Deif's wife and son in Jabalya refugee camp. The woman's mother told reporters she wished she had "another 100 daughters" to offer Deif in marriage.Accusing Israel of opening a "gateway to hell", Hamas fired rockets at Tel Aviv and Jerusalem late on Tuesday, demonstrating the Islamist movement could still reach Israel's heartland despite heavy Israeli bombardments in the five-week conflict.There was no confirmation from Israel that it had tried to kill Deif, who has been targeted in air strikes at least four times since the mid-1990s. Israel holds him responsible for the deaths of dozens of its citizens in suicide bombings.
"ALL OPTIONS OPEN"
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu declined to say whether Deif had been targeted, but he reaffirmed Israel's longstanding policy of considering militant leaders as legitimate targets, adding that "none are immune" from attack.Netanyahu said Israel's Gaza campaign could last for a while. "This will be a continuous campaign," he told a news conference in Tel Aviv, giving a vague description of Israel's goals as seeking "calm and safety" for Israeli citizens.Ya'alon, his defence chief, added that "all options are open, including renewed ground operations" in Gaza.Netanyahu compared Hamas Islamists to Islamic State militants operating in Iraq and Syria, calling them "branches of the same tree" and accusing both groups of acting with "savagery" by killing and targeting attacks against civilians.Abu Ubaida, the Hamas military spokesman, said the group would target Israeli public sites such as soccer stadiums and Israel's Ben-Gurion International Airport. He warned airlines to stay away from Thursday morning and cautioned Israelis living near to Gaza against returning to their homes.An Israeli airport spokesman said there were no disruptions reported in Thursday's flight schedules.Five children were killed in separate air strikes, according to Gaza health officials, and the Israeli military said it had targeted four gunmen in northern Gaza.Hamas said it had fired two rockets at an Israeli gas installation about 30 km (19 miles) off the coast of Gaza in the first apparent attack of its kind. The Israeli military said no missiles had struck any gas platforms at sea.The Palestinian Health Ministry says 2,040 people, most of them civilians, have been killed in Gaza. Israel says it has killed hundreds of Palestinian militants in fighting that the United Nations says has displaced about 425,000 people.Sixty-four Israeli soldiers and three civilians in Israel have been killed in the most deadly and destructive war Hamas and Israel have fought since Israel withdrew unilaterally from Gaza in 2005, before Hamas seized the territory in 2007.Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas, whose Fatah party took part in the Cairo talks, was due to meet the emir of Qatar, Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad al-Thani, and exiled Hamas leader Khaled Meshaal in Doha on Wednesday, diplomatic sources said.Israel instructed its civilians to open bomb shelters as far as 80 km (50 miles) from Gaza, or beyond the Tel Aviv area, and the military called up 2,000 reservists.U.N. Secretary General Ban Ki-moon said in a statement he was "gravely disappointed by the return to hostilities" and urged the sides not to allow matters to escalate.Egyptian mediators have been struggling to end the Gaza conflict and seal a deal that would open the way for reconstruction aid to flow into the territory of 1.8 million people, where thousands of homes have been destroyed.The Palestinians want Egypt and Israel to lift their blockades of the economically crippled Gaza Strip that predated the Israeli offensive.(Additional reporting by Maggie Fick and Stephen Kalin in Cairo; Writing by Maayan Lubell; Editing by Jeffrey Heller and Gareth Jones)

U.S. attorney general visits Missouri town for meetings on fatal shooting-Reuters-By Scott Malone and Carey Gillam-aug 20,14-yahoonews
FERGUSON Mo. (Reuters) - U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder met with community members in Ferguson, Missouri, on Wednesday and vowed a thorough civil rights probe into the fatal police shooting of an unarmed black teenager that has set off 11 nights of racially charged unrest.Holder, the first African-American to head the Justice Department, met with students and then community leaders at a community college during a visit to Ferguson for a briefing on a Justice Department investigation into the Aug. 9 killing of 18-year-old Michael Brown.His visit came hours after nearly 50 protesters were arrested in the latest demonstrations since the shooting. Many of the protests have been peaceful, but others, especially smaller ones late at night, have been punctuated by looting, vandalism and clashes between demonstrators and police.The turmoil has cast the St. Louis suburb of 21,000 people into the international spotlight as a symbol of often troubled U.S. race relations.Ferguson is majority black, but its police force, political leadership and public education administration are dominated by whites. Activists and demonstrators have complained that Brown's death was the culmination of years of unfair police targeting of blacks.Among students meeting with Holder at the Florissant Valley campus of St. Louis Community College was Molyric Welch, 27, who said her brother died three years ago after Ferguson police used a stun gun on him."A lot has happened here," she said. "He (Holder) promised things were going to change."Also on Wednesday, the St. Louis County prosecutor's office began presenting evidence to a regularly seated grand jury investigating the fatal shooting. Prosecuting attorney Bob McCulloch said his office could continue presenting evidence to the grand jury - which meets once a week - through mid-October as he confronts conflicting pressures for speed and thoroughness."On one side, people are saying: 'You're rushing to justice,' and on the other side, they're saying: 'You're dragging this thing out,'" he told a news conference. "We're going to present this as expeditiously as possible, but we are not going to present it in a half-hearted manner."Outside McCulloch's office, a few dozen protesters called for his removal from the case and the immediate arrest of the officer involved in the shooting. The officer, 28-year-old Darren Wilson, has been placed on leave and gone into seclusion."The criminal justice system in America ... is as racist as it was 50 years ago," said 62-year-old black minister Stanton Holliday, who said he was a longtime civil rights activist and was concerned that prosecutors were taking too long.Accounts of Brown's slaying differ. According to police, Wilson reported that Brown reached into the policeman's cruiser when Wilson approached him on the street, then grabbed for the officer's gun.A companion of Brown said the teenager was initially shot after the officer tried to grab him through the car window and again after Brown staggered back with his hands in the air.In the meeting at the community college, Holder said he had assigned the most experienced agents and prosecutors to the investigation, according to a briefing note from his office.Hundreds of people have already been interviewed and federal medical examiners have performed an independent autopsy, the third conducted in the killing.Holder, Missouri Governor Jay Nixon and other officials have appealed for public calm.
EYES OF THE WORLD
The case has reignited a national debate over racial disparities in the U.S. criminal justice system and has drawn sharp words from top U.N. officials and human rights groups about police tactics and the need to respect the rights of protesters.Police and the governor have insisted that thugs or outside agitators have caused most of the trouble at the nightly demonstrations.On Tuesday, demonstrators were noticeably fewer in number and more subdued than on previous nights, but the relative calm dissolved just before midnight, as police in riot gear ordered lingering demonstrators to disperse, then charged into the crowd to make arrests.Police said later they took 47 people into custody and seized several loaded firearms, but no gunshots were fired.On the street where Brown died, and where a memorial occupies the center lane of the road, volunteers on Wednesday worked at tents set up to sign up people to vote to promote youth and community programs."People don't have a voice. That leads to distrust," said the Rev. Alvin Herring, director of the trauma healing team of the community organizing group PICO National Network, who came from Washington, D.C., to help launch the voter drive."In the case of Michael Brown, that led to death," he added. "We are not saying that whites can't represent African-Americans.

(Reuters) - Digital Ally Inc has been busy fielding a rush of enquiries from U.S. police departments this past week about its wearable cameras, following the fatal police shooting of an unarmed black teenager that triggered large-scale rioting.Interest in these tiny video cameras, which can be pinned to shirts, belts or eye-glasses, has surged as pressure mounts on the police for a transparent investigation into the Aug. 9 shooting of 18-year-old Michael Brown by a white policeman in Ferguson, Missouri.A petition on the White House website calling for state, county and local police to be required to wear a camera has received 130,350 signatures since it was uploaded on Aug. 13."We have had a lot more enquiries because of the civil unrest that is going on over in Ferguson," Digital Ally Chief Executive Stanton Ross told Reuters.Larger rival Taser International Inc, best known for its stun guns, said it did not have data yet to gauge interest in the past 10 days.But CEO Rick Smith said he expects an increase in interest for the company's wearable cameras over the next six months "because of the events that are happening today."The total addressable market for wearable video cameras is about $500 million in North America, he estimated.Shares of both the companies have soared since the Ferguson incident. Up to Tuesday's close, Digital Ally's shares nearly doubled since Aug. 8, a day before the fatal shooting. Taser shares rose 30 percent in the same period.Some law- enforcement agencies are already using these rugged cameras.The San Diego police department purchased 300 body-worn video cameras from Taser in May and signed up for a five-year data management subscription."We have had very positive feedback from the officers who are using (body cameras) in the field," Lt. Kevin Mayer, spokesperson for the San Diego police department, said in an emailed statement. Taser introduced its cameras about five years ago, but demand has been slow so far. The devices and cloud storage combined contributed about 12 percent to Taser's total revenue of $37.2 million in the June quarter.Digital Ally's wearable cameras accounted for about 9 percent of its total sales of $3.4 million in the same period."On-officer video is still in its infancy but appears to be accelerating and we think that Taser is well-positioned to be a market leader in the space," JP Morgan Securities analyst Paul Coster said in a note to clients.Part of the reason demand hasn't taken off is the cost. Apart from the device itself, which sells for $399-$795, customers need to buy cloud space to store the footage.Some of these cameras are also tamper-proof - recorded video cannot be edited or deleted.Taser said it charged a U.S. police department $400,000 for a recent 100-unit purchase including a 5-year cloud storage contract.The additional cost might still be worth it.Cambridge University's study of the Rialto, California police department's use of wearable cameras showed that complaints against police fell drastically and civilians behaved better when being videotaped.Barak Ariel, a lecturer in the university's criminology department who headed the study, said the use of body-worn videos was a strong deterrent against suspects and officers violating guidelines and regulations.(Reporting by Mridhula Raghavan in Bangalore; Editing by Feroze Jamal and Saumyadeb Chakrabarty)

Obama condemns killing of reporter, U.S. hits militants in Iraq-By Alexander Dziadosz and Steve Holland-aug 20,14-yahoonews
BAGHDAD/EDGARTOWN Mass. (Reuters) - U.S. President Barack Obama expressed revulsion on Wednesday at the beheading of an American journalist by Islamist militants and vowed the United States would do what it must to protect its citizens as international condemnation of the insurgents grew.Not long after Obama called Islamic State a "cancer" with a bankrupt ideology, the Pentagon said U.S. aircraft conducted 14 air strikes in the vicinity of Iraq's Mosul Dam, destroying or damaging militants' Humvees, trucks and explosives.Islamic State posted a video on Tuesday that purported to show the beheading of journalist James Foley in revenge for U.S. air strikes in Iraq. It prompted widespread horror that could push Western powers into further action against the group.Britain's prime minister cut short his vacation as UK intelligence tried to identify Foley's killer, while France called for international coordination against the Islamist militants fighting in Syria and Iraq.U.S. officials said on Wednesday that intelligence analysts had concluded that the Islamic State video, titled "A Message to America," was authentic. It also showed images of another U.S. journalist, Steven Sotloff, whose fate the group said depends on how the United States acts in Iraq.The gruesome video presented Obama with bleak options that could define American involvement in Iraq and the public reaction to it, potentially dragging him further into a conflict he built much of his presidency on ending.Obama called the beheading of Foley "an act of violence that shocked the conscience of the entire world" and said the militants had killed innocent civilians, subjected women and children to torture, rape and slavery and targeted Muslims, Christians and religious minorities."So ISIL speaks for no religion. Their victims are overwhelmingly Muslim, and no faith teaches people to massacre innocents. No just God would stand for what they did yesterday and what they do every single day," Obama said in brief comments to reporters in Edgartown, Massachusetts, where he has been vacationing. He said he had spoken with Foley's family."ISIL has no ideology of any value to human beings. Their ideology is bankrupt."
U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry said the United States would "never back down in the face of such evil."ISIL and the wickedness it represents must be destroyed, and those responsible for this heinous, vicious atrocity will be held accountable," Kerry said in a statement.
British anti-terrorist police began an investigation of the video, in which Foley's killer spoke with a London accent.Apparently a British national, the killer is just one of hundreds of European Muslims drawn to join Islamic State in Iraq and Syria, who authorities say pose a security threat to U.S. and European interests if they return home from the Middle East.The video showed a high level of technical proficiency and the use of a British voice may have been intended to make its contents clear to audiences in the United States, Islamic State's declared enemy.Foreign Secretary Philip Hammond said he was not surprised to hear the British accent and that large numbers of British nationals were fighting in Iraq and Syria."Our intelligence services will be looking very carefully on both sides of the Atlantic at this video to establish its authenticity, to try to identify the individual concerned and then we will work together to try to locate him," Hammond told Sky news.France said it wanted the permanent members of the U.N. Security Council and regional countries, including Arab states and Iran, to coordinate action against Islamic State. President Francois Hollande called for an international conference to discuss how to tackle the group.U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon condemned "the horrific murder of journalist James Foley, an abominable crime that underscores the campaign of terror the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant continues to wage against the people of Iraq and Syria," U.N. spokesman Stephane Dujarric said.Iraqi Foreign Minister Hoshiyar Zebari urged the world to back his country against Islamic State, which he described as a threat to the world, not just to the minority ethnic groups whose members it has killed in Iraq.Germany and Italy said they were ready to send arms to bolster the military capabilities of Iraqi Kurds fighting Islamic State in northern Iraq.Sending arms into conflict zones is a major departure for Germany, which has often shied away from direct involvement in military conflicts since World War Two due to its Nazi past.The video's message was unambiguous, warning of greater retaliation to come against Americans following nearly two weeks of U.S. air strikes that have pounded militant positions and halted the advance of Islamic State, which until this month had captured a third of Iraq with little resistance.Foley, 40, was kidnapped on Nov. 22, 2012, in northern Syria, according to GlobalPost. He had earlier been kidnapped and released in Libya.Sotloff, who appeared at the end of the video, went missing in northern Syria while reporting in July 2013. He has written for TIME among other news organizations.On Facebook, Foley's mother, Diane Foley, said: "We have never been prouder of our son Jim. He gave his life trying to expose the world to the suffering of the Syrian people."We implore the kidnappers to spare the lives of the remaining hostages. Like Jim, they are innocents. They have no control over American government policy in Iraq, Syria or anywhere in the world."The video was posted after the United States resumed air strikes in Iraq this month for the first time since the end of the U.S. occupation in 2011.U.S. Senator John McCain, a Republican, said Foley's death should serve as a turning point for Obama in his deliberations over how to deal with Islamic State. "First of all, you've got to dramatically increase the air strikes. And those air strikes have to be devoted to Syria as well," McCain said in a telephone interview.
Islamic State, which has declared a caliphate in the parts of Iraq and Syria it controls, opened the video with a clip of Obama saying he had authorized strikes in Iraq.The words "Obama authorizes military operations against the Islamic State effectively placing America upon a slippery slope towards a new war front against Muslims" appeared in English and Arabic on the screen.It showed black and white aerial footage of air strikes with text saying: "American aggression against the Islamic State."A man identified as Foley, head shaven and dressed in an orange outfit similar to uniforms worn by prisoners at the U.S. detention camp in Guantanamo Bay, is seen kneeling in the desert next to a man holding a knife and clad head to toe in black."I call on my friends, family and loved ones to rise up against my real killers, the U.S. government, for what will happen to me is only a result of their complacency and criminality," the kneeling man says.The man next to him, in a black mask, speaks in a British accent and says, "This is James Wright Foley, an American citizen, of your country. As a government, you have been at the forefront of the aggression towards the Islamic State."
"Today your military air force is attacking us daily in Iraq. Your strikes have caused casualties amongst Muslims. You are no longer fighting an insurgency. We are an Islamic army, and a state that has been accepted by a large number of Muslims worldwide."Following his statement, he beheads the kneeling man. At the end of the video, words on the side of the screen say, "Steven Joel Sotloff," as another prisoner in an orange jumpsuit is shown on screen. "The life of this American citizen, Obama, depends on your next decision," the masked man says.University of Virginia political scholar Larry Sabato said the killing was like the beheading of American journalist Daniel Pearl in Pakistan in 2002. He said it could help bolster a perception among Americans that the United States will have to be more aggressive in dealing with Islamic State militants.Syria has been the most dangerous country for journalists for more than two years. At least 69 other journalists have been killed covering the conflict there and more than 80 journalists have been kidnapped in Syria.The U.S.-based Committee to Protect Journalists estimates that approximately 20 journalists are currently missing in Syria. Many of them are believed to be held by Islamic State.As well as taking territory, Islamic State has seized a number of oil wells in northern Iraq. The government in Baghdad said it was troubled by reports that Islamic State was smuggling oil to export markets and warned that the purchase of such supplies could help the group fund its operations.(Additional reporting by Stephanie Nebehay in Geneva, Oliver Holmes and Tom Perry in Beirut, Sabine Siebold in Berlin, Costas Pitas and William James in London, Louis Charbonneau at the United Nations and John Irish in Paris; Writing by Giles Elgood and Jim Loney; Editing by David Stamp and Dan Grebler)
Dozens die in Ukraine in street battles, Donetsk shelling-Reuters-By Richard Balmforth and Thomas Grove-aug 20,14-yahoonews
KIEV/DONETSK Ukraine (Reuters) - Heavy shelling hit residential neighborhoods in Ukraine's rebel stronghold of Donetsk and government forces fought street battles in other towns on Wednesday as they sought to crush a four-month-old separatist rebellion.The forces of the Western-backed Kiev government are steadily gaining the upper hand over the separatists in Russian-speaking eastern Ukraine and are tightening the noose around the main rebel bastions of Donetsk and Luhansk.Reuters reporters in Donetsk said mortar rounds had struck Chelyuskintsev Street in the north of the city, a few km (miles) from the frontline of the conflict, shattering the windows of several five-storey apartment buildings and shearing off the branches of trees and downing power lines.The attack left large craters in the street and a meter-wide hole in the first floor of one of the apartment buildings."The Ukrainian army or whoever they are – they’re bombing us again. I've lived in the apartment building my entire life and now they want to take everything I have. There is nothing left to lose here in this city," said Nina, 52.The Donetsk city administration, controlled by the separatists, said nine residents had been killed in shelling on Wednesday. The Ukrainian government denies that its forces are targeting civilian areas.Another nine people, pro-Ukrainian volunteer fighters supporting Kiev's forces, were killed overnight in separate clashes near Donetsk, Ukrainian officials said.The government in Kiev and its allies have accused Moscow of orchestrating the separatist rebellion and equipping the rebels with tanks, missiles and other heavy weaponry.Moscow denies this and accuses Kiev of waging a war against its own people and shelling civilians.The conflict has plunged relations between Russia and the West to their worst level since the end of the Cold War in 1991.The United Nations puts the death toll in the conflict at 2,086, including civilians and combatants. That figure has nearly doubled since late July, when Ukrainian forces stepped up their offensive and the fighting spread to major urban areas.
"DUST AND SMOKE"
Another Donetsk resident, Lidia, recounted how shelling had hit the shop where she works."I hid behind the counter and closed my eyes. When I opened them everything was dark, full of dust and smoke," she said."How can we live like this being bombed by the leaders of our own country?"Six military trucks rumbled past the wreckage of the house, including one equipped with an anti-tank machine gun and a mobile Grad rocket system. Rebels, wearing green camouflage and sunglasses, looked over the wreckage as they passed."They’ll pay for this," one rebel said, as government convoys sped through parts of the city, running red lights.Elsewhere in the region, Ukrainian forces fought street battles with rebels in the town of Ilovaisk overnight into Wednesday, Interior Ministry official Anton Gerashchenko said.The nine Ukrainian volunteer fighters were killed in those clashes."The enemy can come up to you from wherever he wants and shoot from an attic, a basement or from a children's nursery," Gerashchenko said.Separately, health authorities said 34 civilians had been killed as a result of fighting in the 24 hours up to noon Wednesday in the wider Donetsk region.Local authorities in Luhansk, the other big separatist stronghold, also reported artillery fire and heavy automatic fire on Wednesday as government forces kept up their assault on rebel positions there.Luhansk has been largely cut off for weeks and is without water and regular supplies of electricity which have hit mobile and landline phone connections.Only vital foodstuffs are on sale while long queues form for bread being distributed from vans."The humanitarian crisis is critical. Since there's no electricity, people are now cooking meals outside in their yards on open fires," Oleksander Sabenko, a municipal official, told the Ukrainian news channel 112.ua.As well as worsening conditions for people on the ground, Ukrainian Prime Minister Arseny Yatseniuk said the fighting was draining the potential of the economy by the day, with attacks damaging mines, power stations, rail lines and bridges."Russia is aware that rebuilding the Donbass (the industrial east) will cost not millions but billions of hryvnia," he said.(Writing by Dmitry Zhdannikov and Richard Balmforth; Editing by Gareth Jones)
Japan military holds drill as its role expands-Associated Press-By MARI YAMAGUCHI August 19, 2014 9:01 AM
GOTEMBA, Japan (AP) — Japan's military showcased its ability to defend remote islands Tuesday, as its role expands at home and abroad under new defense policies instituted by Prime Minister Shinzo Abe that have divided the nation.The military began large-scale annual "Fire Power" exercises at the foot of Mount Fuji aimed at repelling a hypothetical invasion of far-off Japanese islands, defense officials said.Lt. Kunikazu Takahashi, spokesman for Japan Ground Self-Defense Force, said the exercises, which last until Sunday, follow new defense guidelines that emphasize island defense.The defense plans, approved in December, reflect a shift in Japan's defense priorities from its northern reaches near Russia to the East China Sea, where Tokyo and Beijing are locked in a dispute over a chain of uninhabited islands. Under the guidelines, Japan is setting up an amphibious unit similar to the U.S. Marines to respond quickly to any invasion of those islands."We believe such arrangements can discourage any foreign invasion," Takahashi said in an interview during the exercise. "It would be best if we can defend our land without fighting."Abe's Cabinet approved in July a reinterpretation of Japan's war-renouncing constitution, which was drafted under U.S. direction after World War II, to allow the military to defend foreign countries. The endorsement of what is known as the right to collective self-defense has sharply divided public opinion, mainly due to sensitivity over Japan's wartime past.Air force veteran Toshiya Hamada, 80, welcomed the decision. "It doesn't mean we want to wage war, but we need to gain strength because we don't want to go to war," he said. "I know soldiers feel most strongly about that because they are the first ones to go to the front line."But Naomi Uchida, 36, who came to see the exercise with her husband and two children, said she doesn't think Japan needs to expand its military role."Japan is safe as it is," she said. "I'm worried if my boy says he wants to join the army."Fighter jets, attack helicopters and tanks, guided missile systems and artillery fired Tuesday at targets at the base of Mount Fuji, where soldiers demonstrated tactics to fight off foreign invaders.The live-fire exercises involve 2,300 troops, 20 aircraft and 80 tanks and armored vehicles, among other equipment.Elsewhere in Asia, some 7,000 troops from China, Russia and four central Asia countries gathered Tuesday in Inner Mongolia for anti-terrorism drills called Peace Mission-2014, China's Xinhua News Agency reported.In South Korea, 50,000 members of the military and 30,000 American counterparts began an annual two-week computer-aided joint war exercise Monday to improve their preparedness for any hostilities with North Korea.
Islamic militants seize 2 northern Syrian towns-Associated Press-By ZEINA KARAM August 13, 2014 10:43 AM-yahoonews
BEIRUT (AP) — Islamic extremists captured two key towns and several villages near Syria's northern border with Turkey on Wednesday after pushing out rival fighters in fierce clashes, opposition groups and activists said.The towns, located in Syria's Aleppo province, are the latest prize for Islamic State militants who have carved out a self-styled caliphate across vast swaths of eastern Syria and northern and western Iraq.Activists said fighters from the group captured the towns of Akhtarin and Turkmanbareh after fierce clashes with mainstream rebels who are fighting to topple Syrian President Bashar Assad. The militants also took a string of nearby villages over which they had been fighting, including Masoudiyeh, Dabiq and Ghouz.The Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said at least 31 rebels and eight Islamic State group fighters were killed in the clashes. The Observatory relies on a network of activists inside Syria for its information.The capture of Akhtarin has strategic significance as the town is "the gate to the northern countryside of Aleppo," said a local rebel commander who uses the nom de guerre Abu Thabet.It seems the Islamic State's ultimate goal, he said, was to reach Marea, a town a few kilometers (miles) to the west that is considered a stronghold of the Islamic Front as well as Azaz, a town located next to the Bab al-Salama border crossing with Turkey.The Islamic Front is a powerful alliance of rebel groups battling against the Islamic State group."They launched an all-out offensive for Akhtarin on Tuesday and the clashes lasted all night," said Abu Thabet, whose moderate Aleppo Swords brigade is affiliated with the Western-backed Free Syrian Army umbrella group.He said the mainstream rebels, including the FSA, were in chaos — encircled in Aleppo province by Syrian government forces on one side and the Islamic State group on the other side.The fighters from the al-Qaida breakaway Islamic State group control huge swaths of territory in eastern and northern Syria and are fighting rival rebels, Kurdish militias and the Syrian army for more. In neighboring Iraq they are batting Iraqi Kurdish peshmerga fighters as well as Iraqi government troops.The takeover of Akhtarin and surrounding Syrian villages was also reported on social media by jihadists affiliated with the Islamic State group.Also Wednesday, the international chemical weapons watchdog said all 581 metric tons (640 tons) of Syria's precursor chemicals for sarin gas that had been transferred to the U.S. cargo vessel MV Cape Ray have been destroyed. The Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons said the Cape Ray has now begun to neutralize the remaining Syrian chemicals on the ship — 19.8 metric tons (22 tons) of sulfur mustard.The remaining 700 metric tons (772 tons) of chemicals removed from Syria as part of a joint OPCW-U.N. mission are being destroyed at land-based facilities in Finland, the United Kingdom and the U.S.The operation began after Syria agreed to relinquish its chemical weapons program in the wake of a deadly chemical attack outside Damascus a year ago.Syria's conflict began in March 2011 as a popular uprising against Assad's rule, but turned into an insurgency after government forces violently cracked down on demonstrators. It has since deteriorated into a civil war with sectarian overtones and increasingly powerful Islamic militant groups. Over 170,000 people have been killed in Syria in over three years of fighting, activists say.

West criticised for 'almost zero' response to Ebola outbreak-Today @ 08:51-aug 20,14-By EUOBSERVER
The international community has done 'almost zero' to tackle the Ebola outbreak which has killed 1200 people in west Africa, Médecins Sans Frontières' operations director said Tuesday, the Guardian reports. "Leaders in the West are talking about their own safety – not helping anyone else," said Brice de la Vigne.
Liberia's Ebola clampdown turns violent as Asia fears new cases-AFP-By Zoom Dosso-aug 20,14-yahoonews
Monrovia (AFP) - Violence erupted in an Ebola quarantine zone in Liberia's capital Wednesday as authorities struggled to contain the epidemic, with new suspected cases in Asia sparking fears of it spreading beyond Africa.Four residents were injured in Monrovia's West Point slum when soldiers opened fire and used tear gas on crowds as they tried to evacuate a state official and her family from the quarantined quarter.The crackdown in Liberia comes as authorities around the world are scrambling to stem the worst-ever outbreak of Ebola, with the latest official toll jumping 106 in two days to 1,350 dead.Liberia, with 576 deaths from 972 diagnosed cases, is the worst hit of the four affected west African countries, with the numbers of deaths and infections rising dramatically.Ninety-five people died there in a surge of deaths over the weekend, the World Health Organization said Wednesday, while only nine died in Sierra Leone and two in Guinea, where the outbreak began.Liberian President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf quarantined West Point and Dolo Town, to the east of the capital, and imposed a night-time curfew as part of new drastic measures to fight the disease.Residents of West Point, where club-wielding youths stormed an Ebola medical facility on Saturday, reacted with fury to the crackdown, hurling stones and shouting at the security forces."It is inhumane," resident Patrick Wesseh told AFP by telephone."They can't suddenly lock us up without any warning, how are our children going to eat?"On Wednesday, authorities in Asia said they had detained several people arriving from west Africa who they suspect could have Ebola.Two Nigerians who travelled to Vietnam from Nigeria were undergoing tests at a specialist hospital in Ho Chi Minh City, health officials said.And in Myanmar, a local man was also being tested after arriving from Guinea. The cases follow the news on Tuesday that patients were also being tested in the United States and Spain.A young Nigerian who fell ill on an Air France flight to Paris from Lagos was met by a special medical team at Charles De Gaulle airport on Wednesday, but officials said it was a false alert.
- Health services 'overwhelmed' -
From its initial outbreak in Guinea the virus spread to Liberia, Sierra Leone and Nigeria, overwhelming inadequate public health services already battling common deadly diseases such as malaria.Straining the situation even further, several top officials leading the fight have lost their lives to the disease.A doctor who treated Nigeria's first Ebola patient died on Tuesday, taking the death toll in Africa's most populous country to five.Nigerian Health Minister Onyebuchi Chukwu said the doctor was "the most senior in the management of the (first Ebola) patient," Liberian-American Patrick Sawyer, 40.The UN's new pointman on Ebola, David Nabarro, was expected to arrive in west Africa on Wednesday evening, and is hoping to help shore up health services in the four affected countries.The British physician said he would focus on "revitalising the health sectors" in the affected countries, many of which have only recently emerged from years of devastating conflict.Efforts to contain the epidemic have also run up against local distrust of outside doctors, and stories of aid workers carrying the infection.Liberia's leader warned that local rituals were among the factors spreading the disease."We have been unable to control the spread due to continued denials, cultural burying practices, disregard for the advice of health workers and disrespect for the warnings by the government," Sirleaf said.
- 'Encouraging signs' -
WHO spokeswoman Fadela Chaib noted "encouraging signs" in Nigeria and Guinea, where prevention measures and work to trace lines of infection were starting to take effect.In Sierra Leone, the outbreak has also been traced back to one person: a herbalist in the remote eastern border village of Sokoma."She was claiming to have powers to heal Ebola. Cases from Guinea were crossing into Sierra Leone for treatment," Mohamed Vandi, the top medical official in the hard-hit district of Kenema, told AFP. No cure or vaccine is currently available for Ebola, which is spread by close contact with body fluids.Given the extent of the crisis, the WHO has authorised largely untested treatments -- including ZMapp and the Canadian-made VSV-EBOV vaccine, whose possible side effects on humans are not known.Three doctors in Liberia who had been given the experimental US-made ZMapp are reportedly responding to the treatment.Countries throughout Africa and beyond remain on high alert, however, with the Equatorial Guinea airline, Ceiba Intercontinental, the latest to suspend flights to the whole region.

13 Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.

5 And the devil, taking him (JESUS) up into an high mountain, shewed unto him all the kingdoms of the world in a moment of time.
6 And the devil said unto him, All this power will I give thee, and the glory of them: for that is delivered unto me; and to whomsoever I will I give it.
7 If thou therefore wilt worship me, all shall be thine.
23 Thus he said, The fourth beast (EU,REVIVED ROME) shall be the fourth kingdom upon earth,(7TH WORLD EMPIRE) which shall be diverse from all kingdoms, and shall devour the whole earth, and shall tread it down, and break it in pieces.(TRADING BLOCKS-10 WORLD REGIONS/TRADE BLOCS)
24 And the ten horns out of this kingdom are ten kings(10 NATIONS-10 WORLD DIVISION WORLD GOVERNMENT) that shall arise: and another shall rise after them; and he shall be diverse from the first, and he shall subdue three kings.(TAKE OVER 3 WORLD REGIONS)
4 But thou, O Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the book, even to the time of the end: many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall be increased.
1 And at that time shall Michael stand up, the great prince which standeth for the children of thy people: and there shall be a time of trouble, such as never was since there was a nation even to that same time: and at that time thy people shall be delivered, every one that shall be found written in the book.
REVELATION 13:1-3,7,8,12,16-18(ALL THE WORLDS CITIZENS UNDER DICTATORSHIP)
1 And I stood upon the sand of the sea, and saw a beast rise up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and upon his horns ten crowns, and upon his heads the name of blasphemy.
2 And the beast 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: and the dragon gave him his power, and his seat, and great authority.
3 And 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.
7 And 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.
8 And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world.
12 And 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.
16 And he causeth all,(WORLD SOCIALISM) both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads:
17 And 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.
18 Here 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.
3 So he carried me away in the spirit into the wilderness: and I saw a woman sit upon a scarlet coloured beast, full of names of blasphemy, having seven heads and ten horns.
7 And the angel said unto me, Wherefore didst thou marvel? I will tell thee the mystery of the woman, and of the beast that carrieth her, which hath the seven heads and ten horns.
9 And here is the mind which hath wisdom. The seven heads are seven mountains, on which the woman sitteth.
10 And there are seven kings: five are fallen, and one is, and the other is not yet come; and when he cometh, he must continue a short space.
12 And the ten horns which thou sawest are ten kings, which have received no kingdom as yet; but receive power as kings one hour with the beast.
18 And the woman which thou sawest is that great city, which reigneth over the kings of the earth.
We shall have World Government, whether or not we like it. The only question is whether World Government will be achieved by conquest or consent.James Paul Warburg appearing before the Senate on 7th February 1950
Like a famous WWII Belgian General,Paul Henry Spock said in 1957:We need no commission, we have already too many. What we need is a man who is great enough to be able to keep all the people in subjection to himself and to lift us out of the economic bog into which we threaten to sink. Send us such a man. Be he a god or a devil, we will accept him.And today, sadly, the world is indeed ready for such a man.

What the leaked EU-Canada trade paper means for TTIP-18.08.14 @ 17:47-euobserver-By Benjamin Fox
BRUSSELS - EU trade negotiators, who like to give as little away as possible, will have been deeply dismayed by the leak of 520 pages of their latest baby: the EU-Canada free trade agreement (Ceta).
The document, published by German broadcaster ARD last week, set out a large portion of the draft agreement reached after close to five years of painstaking talks.For trade geeks or those with severe insomnia the good news is that there is more to come. The Canadian government has indicated that it expects the entire agreement to span around 1,500 pages in total, which will be made public following an EU- Canada summit in September.Delivering a trade deal is a slow business.European Commission President Jose Manuel Barroso and Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper formally signed off the end of the political side of negotiations last October. It has since been subject to 10 months of fine-tuning by trade officials and legal scrutiny ahead of the September summit.It will then face two years going through the Canadian and European parliaments, as well as Canada’s 13 provincial assemblies, before deputies take the final votes on whether to put it into law.But Ceta, which the commission claims will be worth over €25 billion per year, is more important to Brussels than the average free trade deal.Its passage has become a test run ahead of the anticipated trans-Atlantic trade and investment deal between the EU and the US known as "TTIP". EU trade chief Karel de Gucht has publicly described it as a "template" for TTIP.Unsurprisingly, most of the document’s contents are, at first glance, punishingly boring to the average reader.There are, however, interesting quirks and exceptions to the principles of unfettered free trade. For example, it reveals that the Canadian provinces of Ontario and British Columbia will be allowed to have no more than 292 and 60 shops, respectively, that exclusively sell Canadian wines. No chablis or rioja for them.Much of what is contained in Ceta is uncontroversial and large tracts of it will almost certainly re-appear, perhaps even word for word, in TTIP.More interesting is what will be different about TTIP and what will be left out.For starters, it will be more difficult to keep the contents of TTIP under wraps.Last month, the European Ombudsman opened an investigation calling for the Council to publish the EU negotiating directives for the TTIP negotiations. She has also proposed to the European Commission a range of practical measures to enable timely public access to TTIP documents.Meanwhile, financial services will not be included at all in TTIP (at the behest of the Americans) and the section on geographically-specific foods such as Parmesan and Feta cheese is likely to be different.Last month, Washington DC’s EU ambassador, Anthony Gardner, told this website that the EU had “exaggerated the protection of some of its geographical-specific products".“We were not happy with the GI [geographic indicators] proposal in Ceta ... but in our agreement it will not be dealt with in the same way,” he added.Most important, however, are likely to be the sections of TTIP that deal with investor-state dispute settlement (ISDS) – the provisions which allow companies to sue governments if they believe themselves to have been treated unfairly, and have stoked such controversy in European debate.Around 30 pages of Ceta focus on the rights of Canadian and EU investors in the other’s territories.Again, most of the language appears innocuous legalese. Officials often argue that ISDS is fundamentally protection from discrimination. For example, the investment articles would forbid the EU and Canadian governments from limiting foreign shareholding, imposing quotas on employee numbers, forcing firms out by limiting the number of firms that can operate in a specific sector.It then goes on to list the rights and legal process under which companies can appeal against a government that it feels has breached the principles of ‘fair and equal treatment’.Sounds fair enough? To most people, the answer would be Yes. Apply the same language to a trade deal with the US - and its reputation for cut-throat corporations rather than those wholesome Canadians - and the average Joe is likely to be less sanguine.For example, Article X(9) paragraph four in the section on investment protection contains a phrase that will almost certainly be used by anti-TTIP campaigners."A Tribunal may take into account ... whether a Party (government) created a legitimate expectation ... upon which the investor relied in deciding to make or maintain an investment". Phrases such as "legitimate expectation" are the kinds that have corporate lawyers immediately pricking up their ears.Like the EU’s own treaties, there are numerous annexes in Ceta devoted to areas that are politically important to both sides.Intriguingly, there is an annex to clarify how investor-state dispute should be handled in the financial services and intellectual property fields, but no protocol or statement on the general purpose or limits of ISDS.The draft Ceta agreement also includes a provision that governments should be allowed to have their courts interpret intellectual property rights on the basis of domestic law, which some legal analysts have suggested is the result of an ongoing dispute between the Canadian government and US pharmaceutical giant Eli Lilly.Eli Lilly is pursuing a $500 million law suit claiming that Canada is in breach of the North American Free Trade Agreement (Nafta) by allowing its courts to revoke two of its patents.The controversy over ISDS is a relatively recent phenomenon and one that, in large part at least, is the result of fears about litigious US multinationals.Without similar provisions to those in Ceta, plus cast-iron guarantees that investor protection rules will have no impact on whether governments can legislate in the environmental or public health fields, it is hard to see how ISDS will survive as part of TTIP.Trade negotiators are often at pains to stress how technocratic, de-politicised and plain dull their work is. Much of Ceta’s contents bear this assessment out.But that line will not prevent TTIP from being treated differently to previous trade deals. It is simply too big and too important and, already, too political.
08/20/2014 - vatican insider-The Pope after Korea: “Christ does not destroy cultures”. Prayers for Iraq-Pope Francis-“Christians and other persecuted minorities”. The general audience after the trip to Korea: we pray for reconciliation. Pope gives thanks for the condolences following the death of his relatives and greets San Lorenzo Almagro football team-Iacopo Scaramuzzi
Vatican City-“Christ does not destroy cultures”, but “fights and defeats the Devil, who sows discord between man and man, population and population”. Pope Francis has devoted his words during the weekly general audience in the Vatican to his recent trip to Korea (13th -18th August), praying again for reconciliation in the Asian peninsula. Francis has invited the thousands of faithful who attended the audience to pray for Christians and “those religious minorities who are not Christians, but are persecuted all the same” in Iraq. A delegation from “his” football team, San Lorenzo Almagro from Buenos Aires was also present in the Paul VI Hall with the South-American Copa Libertadores that they won last week. The Pope received condolences and applause from the faithful, due to the accident that involved some of his relatives in Argentina yesterday. “Even the Pope has a family”, said Francis, thanking people for their prayers.“The significance of this apostolic trip can be condensed in three words: memory, hope and testimony”, said the Pope. In Korea, “the Church is the guardian of memory and hope”, he said. After remembering “the two main events” of the trip, namely the beatification of 124 Korean martyrs and the conclusion of the sixth Asian Youth Day, Pope Francis has highlighted that “the Church in Korea also carries the memory of the fundamental role of lay people both in the beginning of the faith and in the work of evangelisation. In that country, the Christian community was not founded by missionaries but by a group of young Koreans in the second half of the 18th century, who were attracted by some Christian writings. They studied them in depth and chose them as their rule of life. One of them was sent to Beijing to be baptized and then this lay man, in turn, baptized his companions”. The Argentinean Pope went on to say, “Dear brothers, in the history of faith in Korea we can see how Christ does not destroy cultures, Christ does not destroy cultures and wreck the path of populations who, through centuries and millennia, seek the truth and practice love of God and their neighbour. Christ does not abolish what is good, but brings it to fulfilment. What Christ, instead, fights and defeats is the Devil, who sows discord between man and man, population and population; who generates exclusion through the idolatry of money; who sows the poison of nothingness into the hearts of young people. This, Jesus Christ has fought and won through his loving sacrifice”. With this faith, “we have prayed, and are praying even now, so that all the children of Korea, who suffer under the consequences of war and divisions, can set off on the path of brotherhood and reconciliation”.At the time of the final greetings in foreign languages, the Pope has especially invited all francophone pilgrims to unite in “the prayer of the whole Church for that Asian community I have just visited, as well as for all persecuted Christians in the world and in Iraq in particular. And pray even for those religious minorities who are not Christians but are persecuted all the same”.At the beginning of the audience, Pope Francis greeted the representatives from “his” football team, San Lorenzo Almagro, from the Boedo neighbourhood in Buenos Aires. The delegation was led by the Vice-President of the team, Marcello Tinelli, a famous TV show host in Argentina. “A greeting to the champions of America, the San Lorenzo team, who are part of my cultural identity” said the Pope afterwards.There were applause for solidarity with the Pope when the Spanish and Italian language speakers offered him condolences for the death of some of his relatives. Yesterday, in a car accident, a nephew of the Pope, Emanuel Horacio Bergoglio, was seriously injured, while his wife Valeria Carmona and their two children, Antonio, 8 months, and Jose, 2 years, were killed. “I thank you for the prayers and condolences for what happened to my family: even the Pope has a family”, said Francis. “We were five brothers, so I have 16 nephews and nieces and one of my nephews had a car accident: his wife died as well as his two young children, one was two and the other was only a few months old, and he is in a critical state at the moment. I thank you all for the condolences and prayers”. Pope Francis even joked with some of the faithful there: “Today attending this audience there are two brave groups; these people, who have come from Loreto on a canoe and the French, who have come on a donkey: well done!”. And also, addressing the French. “I greet that beautiful French family who entered the hall, they come with two donkeys and six children”, he said. Then the family was framed on the big screen and the Pope said, “That’s them, but did the donkeys not come in?”.
15 I will make waste mountains and hills, and dry up all their herbs; and I will make the rivers islands, and I will dry up the pools.
7 For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places.
8 All these are the beginning of sorrows.
8 For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom:(ETHNIC GROUP AGAINST ETHNIC GROUP) and there shall be earthquakes in divers places, and there shall be famines and troubles: these are the beginnings of sorrows.
11 And great earthquakes shall be in divers places,(DIFFERNT PLACES AT THE SAME TIME) and famines, and pestilences; and fearful sights and great signs shall there be from heaven.
