Lieutenant General Michael Flynn became “the highest ranking intelligence official to go on record,” saying the US and other states, notably Turkey and the Gulf Arab states, were sponsoring Al-Qaeda-led rebels in Syria with political support and weapons in an attempt to overthrow President Bashar Assad.
The classified DIA report presented in August 2012, stated that:
“the Salafist, the Muslim Brotherhood, and AQI [Al- Qaeda in Iraq] are the major forces driving the insurgency in Syria,” being supported by “the West, Gulf countries and Turkey.”
The U.S. as this reveals, partnered with Islam’s Caliphate agenda, primarily with the Gulf’s Qatar and Turkey.
Aiding in the revival of Turkey’s Ottoman agenda that stems from a nation (the U.S.) which claims to study and read the Bible should be considered an absurdity. Yet it is becoming a fact of history. The U.S. aided in reviving the very beast it so claimed during their Sunday Schools that they want to prevent. This shows that manipulating the meaning of one word in the Bible causes tremendous consequences.
But one might argue that politicians are not Bible adherents.
What is also true is that politicians, while they are elected in the U.S. are always seen to claim they are Christian and always make sure you see them carrying the Bible. The moment they lay their hands on the Bible, to God there is no excuse.
What I found out throughout my years is that most who claim to fight principalities and dark powers in high places they are unaware that such dark power have robbed them from understanding Scripture: Lydia (Turkey), Elam (Iran), Arabia, are the main enemy as they are controlled by Islam. The enemy is not Bashar Al-Assad or Saddam Hussein who are Arab nationalists. The Bible says that the main enemy is Antichrist who kills God’s people and insists they “deny Father and Son” (1 John 2:22). This is not Putin who honors both Father and Son, or is it Bashar who could care less if Christians in Syria honored Father and Son.
So what was the result of U.S. policy in Syria? The document which was recently declassified through the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA), now sounds like a prophecy:
“If the situation unravels, there is the possibility of establishing a declared or undeclared Salafist principality in eastern Syria… and this is exactly what the supporting powers to the opposition want, in order to isolate the Syrian regime.” … “ISI (the Islamic State of Iraq) could also declare an Islamic State through its union with other terrorist organizations in Iraq and Syria, which will create grave danger in regards of unifying Iraq and the protection of its territory”
Those groups eventually emerged as Islamic State and Al-Nusra Front, an Islamic group loyal to Al-Qaeda.
The former DIA head admitting the US sponsored Al-Qaeda-associated groups. Yet US State Department spokesperson John Kirby solely blaming Assad for the rise of Islamic State forces.
“The rise of ISIL inside Syria was, in fact, helped by Assad regime’s lack of legitimacy to govern effectively its own people and its own territory,” Kirby said.
This is what we call propaganda. Assad never wanted a Sunni Caliphate in Syria.
Painting Assad as the root of all evil is the same excuse given by Erdogan of Turkey. What is then the difference between this Islamists policy and the U.S. government that is mainly Protestant? The answer is: not much.
The two policies, U.S. and Turkey mimics each other. This was the same type of policy in history where the Protestants aided the Muslim Ottoman Caliphate.
What is most interesting about the whole matter is that Suleiman the Magnificent, the Sultan of the Ottoman Empire during Luther’s time, that he sent a letter to Luther’s followers in Flanders, Holland which stated that he felt akin to them since: “they did not worship idols, believed in one God and fought against the Pope and Emperor” (Found in The Ottoman state and its place in world history by Kemal H. Karpat p.53).
Just one difference between Catholic and Protestant was used by the devil to have the Protestants honor Antichrist: Icons. Many Protestants even today accuse the Catholic (as do Muslims) of worshipping idols.
Based on that, Suleiman the Magnificent extended his kinship further and wrote letters to German princes who were sympathetic to Luther to form an alliance with him to fight both the Emperor and the Pope as well giving protection to Luther and Calvin’s followers in Hungary and Transylvania. (See Muslims and the Gospel: Bridging the Gaps by Roland Miller, Lutheran University Press, Minneapolis, 2005 p208).
It was no accident that a century later, a Muslim diplomat from Morocco sent to cement an alliance between Protestant Holland and the Ottoman Empire along with the Islamic kingdoms of Morocco and the Moriscos, by the name of Al-Hajari, would state in his book, the following:
Their teachers [Luther and Calvin] warned them [Protestants] against the Pope and the worshippers of Idols; they also told them not to hate the Muslims because they are the sword of God in the world against the idol-worshippers. That is why they side with the Muslims. (—Al-Hajari, The Book of the Protector of Religion against the Unbelievers)
That is why it was so easy for Luther’s followers and the followers of John Calvin to collaborate with the Islamic forces attacking Europe’s Catholic Spain and Italy. Luther laid the groundwork for this in his half-hearted statements regarding Islam along with his actions. But it gets worse from here on in. After the demise of Suleiman the Magnificent, Murad III, his successor wrote a letter to forge alliance with the Lutherans in both Flanders and Spain that stated:
As you, for your part, do not worship idols, you have banished the idols and portraits and “bells” from churches, and declared your faith by stating that God Almighty is one and Holy Jesus is His Prophet and Servant, and now, with heart and soul, are seeking and desirous of the true faith; but the faithless one they call Papa does not recognize his Creator as One, ascribing divinity to Holy Jesus (upon him be peace!), and worshiping idols and pictures which he has made with his own hands, thus casting doubt upon the oneness of God and instigating how many servants to that path of error” —1574 letter of Murad III to the “Members of the Lutheran sect in Flanders and Spain”
It was also no accident that in the Battle of Lepanto in 1571 that amongst the Ottoman forces were to be found Lutheran and Calvinist allies from Holland and England. Treachery continues and in the Battle of Vienna in 1681, the leader of the Protestants in Hungary, Imre Thokoly in conjunction with the Ottoman forces was attacking Vienna. It is the grace of God that prevented this Islamic scourge from succeeding with Vienna as they had with Constantinople, due to the intervention of John Sobieski, king of Poland.
Nonetheless, it is clear by now that the followers of Luther and Calvin were willing allies and traitors to the forces of Islam due to the groundwork laid by the Reformers. In fact, it became a common saying among the Dutch Protestants in the 16th century that they would “rather a Turk than a Papist”. Sadly, the same was said by a number of Orthodox Christians before the fall of Constantinople in 1453: “Better the turban than the tiara”, for which the Orthodox Church has paid a bitter, bloody price as evidenced in the number of Saints and New Martyrs during the Ottoman and Caliphate eras.
History repeats itself indeed when others fail to learn from it!
While many will blame Obama and the democrats for everything evil under the sun, such blame becomes nonsense when we review Bush on Iraq or Reagan on Afghanistan. Politicians are all cut from the same cloth, they all talk American prior to the election and support Islam right after. Every single king sleeps with the harlot of Islam which stems from Arabia.
Everyone has a scapegoat to blame for everything under the sun: its the Pope, its Obama, its Clinton … all blame others while they forget to blame their faulty biblical interpretations or pay attention that their government (both Republican and Democrat) are taking the side of Antichrist.
The key in understanding U.S. foreign policy is simple. It mimics the old English (one super power) propaganda against Spain (another super power at the time). On the one had, we have mainstream media that spend so much time demonizing a single enemy, be it Putin in the Ukraine situation, Assad in Syria, Gaddafi in Libya or Saddam Hussein in Iraq … the goal is always to exploit or bolster conflicts and situations in order to secure political and economic goals such as access to oil for economic interests. England demonized Spain by creating the Inquisition myth.
The tactics are simple. The first is the distraction politics. And as the English blamed Spain for all sorts of false atrocities, the U.S. said that Saddam has weapons of mass destruction and that Bashar was using chemical weapons on his people …
Americans are agitated and the politicians get their approval from the naive masses.
So in order to undermine Russia’s influence in Syria the U.S. must gain regime change. The same is in Egypt which transferred to Russia instead of the U.S. (do you blame them, the U.S. stood with the Muslim Brotherhood). So the U.S. must then demonize Putin and Bashar Al-Assad and Al-Sisi. In Iraq it was the same. No one today can dispute that the Bush administration lied about Saddam Hussein—the US’s former ally and partner in (war) against Iran turned public enemy number one claiming that it had weapons of mass destruction in order to have a pretext to invade the country. In Libya Gaddafi’s plan “to quit selling Libyan oil in U.S. dollars — a plan that would be “especially devastating for the U.S. economy and the American dollar.”
So the U.S. establishes “human rights” organizations operating within these nations that are funded by the US Department of State. These continue with trumpeting human-rights abuses. So in Iraq it was Saddam’s jailing Shiite rebels and in Syria it was Bashar’s jailing Sunni rebels, so on and so forth. All this is meant to gain the bleeding hearts of the American people to support U.S. interference. Had the U.S. government truly cared about human rights abuses, what have they considered to defend the persecution of Christians which was the result of such “regime change” policies? The answer is that such atrocities is not their highest priority. But it should be for the American people who are more interested in political tabloids than they are interested in real suffering of Christians.
But the problem with such policies is that it will not last. People are not that stupid. When Putin was last elected, the U.S. media machine claimed that he stole the election. This propaganda had no effect on Russians who backed their president by 89%.
Such policies will simply bring China and Russia together. Russia, China, Saddam Hussein, Gaddafi, Assad, Al-Sisi of Egypt are no threat to the US. The threat to the U.S. is the establishment of an Islamic Caliphate. By aiding and abetting Caliphate minded Islamists, we have only ourselves to blame when all this crap hits the fan. That, plus ignorance of Scripture is no excuse. Christ in the end will judge based on what a Christian has done for his brethren. One can claim ignorance, but the Bible declared:
my people are destroyed from lack of knowledge. “Because you have rejected knowledge, I also reject you as my priests; because you have ignored the law of your God, I also will ignore your children. (Hosea 4:6)
Yet, how many times you heard it said from the pulpit, “its not about knowledge” “its not about the law”?
These who trumpet such lies are the very wolves in sheep clothing.
