“Their bodies will lie in the public square of the great city–which is figuratively called Sodom and Egypt–where also their Lord was crucified.” (Revelation 11:8)
It is a prophecy whenever its read folks begin to guess if this was Moses and Elijah or Enoch and Elijah and the debates go on without focusing on the substance or the other parts of the passages reveal a potent view (more on that later). While most focus on the unknown, few think why Jerusalem here is called “Sodom” and “Egypt” (more on why it is called Egypt later). What is to unfold is these amazing prophecies you will see here in our detailed study.
First things first. No one can dispute this is Jerusalem and it is called “Sodom” since there is only one place that Christ was crucified: Jerusalem “where their Lord was crucified”. The two witnesses are Christians since it is “their [the two witnesses] Lord was crucified”. These two interpretations (its about Jerusalem and it is called Sodom) are indisputable.
And as I read the Jerusalem Post, it revealed that the beloved of many Israel supporters, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu capitulated and showed his support on the Knesset’s first designated LGBT Rights on Tuesday while he even slandered the scriptures to harlot with Sodom.
The time is short. Netanyahu rarely appears in the legislature on Tuesdays, a day on which it usually does not hold important votes, but he arrived specially to participate in LGBT Rights Day, during which discussions of the topic were held in the plenum and committees.
The prime minister briefly addressed the plenum as a false-prophet: “I know that there were important and lengthy discussions today, and I came here in the middle of my schedule, which was no less busy, to say one sentence to the members of the LGBT community: ‘Every man was created in the image of God.’ That is the idea brought by our nation to mankind thousands of years ago, and it is the principle that must guide our national lives today.”
In other words, homosexuals, since they are created in the image of God, they are now accepted. And here is Netanyahu in 2015, the beloved of so many Christian Israel supporters, selling out on God, while begging the LGBT Community in Israel to Vote Likud in order to Elect a Likud LGBT caucus chair to Knesset. In other words, vote for me and I will give you power and a chair in government:
And I ask: when the Pope even sits with prominent homosexuals, we expose him. But when Netanyahu praises similar reprobates, and makes Jerusalem, the very place of the prophets and where Christ was crucified, the den of Sodomites, and where the scriptures predicted it will become “sodom,” and we say nothing?
Then you had MK Amir Ohana, the first gay lawmaker from Likud, said the LGBT community is 10 percent of the Israeli population and complains that they are discriminated against under law.
If this is true, 10% of Israel are bi-sexual, this is a huge number. He complained:
“They cannot get married in their country, bring children into the world [via surrogacy] in their country, be their partners’ heir if he or she dies, and not because they are hostile to the state, do not serve in the army or pay taxes, rather, because they are gay or lesbian.”

This, despite that in Israel, Lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) rights is the most advanced in the Middle East and one of the most advanced in Asia even more than the United States and ranks top five globally.
Do we think that the two witnesses will be silent on this, especially that the context of their mention calls Jerusalem Sodom? Do we think that God called Jerusalem “Sodom” for no reason?
Like Christians, not all Jews approve. However, sodomy had infiltrated the Jewish religious circles just as it did with Christians. But this gains much less attention. Traditionally, Judaism has condemned homosexuality as contrary to their faith, and this opinion is still maintained by Orthodox Judaism. On the other hand, Reconstructionist Judaism and Reform Judaism do not hold this view and allow for homosexual relations and same-sex marriage.
Conservative Judaism’s Committee on Jewish Law and Standards, which until December 2006 held the same position as Orthodoxy. Yet in 2006, they too issued multiple opinions under its philosophy of pluralism, with one opinion continuing to follow the Orthodox position and another opinion substantially liberalizing its view of homosexual sex and relationships while continuing to regard certain sexual acts as prohibited.
Most Israel lovers are unaware that in Israel there is “Shoval” organization which even uses scripture with the motto “All is created for your glory” (Hebrew Synonym: שׁב”ל – שהכל ברא לכבודו) is an initiative of (mind you) Jewish orthodox lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people. This is why Netanyahu obscures the scriptures and uses verses on man being in the image of God, while he ignores Sodom, which is not too far off from Jerusalem.
Shoval is a cooperation of sodomites from Havruta, and lesbian women from Bat Kol, and is supported and promoted by these organizations. Havruta is another association of Orthodox gay men, has succeeded in opening discussions with several liberal-minded Orthodox rabbis.
And these get the full attention. It is not the persecution of religious Jews the government talks about with such sodomite infiltration, these get the defense from the Israeli government and the complete silence from the Israeli-flag waving Christians in America, despite that Scriptures warn, that the two witnesses will come to punish Jerusalem-cum-Sodom.
The Likud MK compared the LGBT community to the Jewish people, who were “hated for no reason, persecuted, discriminated against and faced forced conversion.”
In other words, healing a sodomite from the sickness is “persecution”. One would never find this even in the Vatican’s governing laws. “What did they do wrong that so many people hate them, sometimes to death?” Ohana asked as if the sodomites are now saints.
At times we think that prophecy is exclusively centered on Israel but forget that the Israel of God, the Heavenly Mount Zion plays the major role, and is why the Two Witnesses are Christian who represent Heavenly Mount Zion. Sure, God gave Jerusalem to the Jew, but does that mean they can turn it into Sodom and remain without punishment?
The LGBT infiltrated even the religious sector in Israel.
But does that mean all Orthodox Jews support the epidemic?
Hardly. Just as it is with Christians who hate what they see happening at the top levels, the sodomites want to infiltrate every Jewish and Christian sectors with their deviancy, yet when it comes to the Catholic Churches, they seem to get everyone pointing fingers as if Catholicism all of the sudden permits it and has a monopoly on advancing sodomy.
And so if Orthodox Jews divide, so why only focus on the Catholic where priests also divide on this issue?
Fact is, the devil infiltrates and destroys. Christians need to listen to John: “He that commmitteth sin is of the devil: for the devil sinneth from the beginning. For this purpose, the Son of God appeared, that he might destroy the works of the devil.” (1 John 3:8)
To reflect on Christ is that we too destroy the works of the devil and not the institutions of God.
Imagine destroying the Temple for the sins of David and Solomon? Imagine Christ before His Crucifixion, destroying the Sanhedrin for the sins of the Pharisees? Or imagine that we condemn all pharisees for the sins of a few while forgetting that the first Christians were mostly pharisees?
This is the type of unbalanced views people do.
Here is Jerusalem for all to see where Orthodox songs are sang glorifying God in heaven while they wave their evil banners. This is Jerusalem today:
The crowds here in the U.S. at times express an unbalanced view towards Israel while they ignore God’s balanced view:
“I will surely save you out of a distant place, your descendants from the land of their exile. Jacob will again have peace and security, and no one will make him afraid. I am with you and will save you,’ declares the Lord. ‘Though I completely destroy all the nations among which I scatter you, I will not completely destroy you. I will discipline you but only in due measure; I will not let you go entirely unpunished.’”
God will not leave them entirely unpunished for their sins. And neither will He be silent on the silence of enablers who do nothing for Jerusalem which is desecrated by filth.
And you think that the so-called “Bible believing Christians” are innocent?
Even more guilty are the promoters of Gay friendly theology, which is infiltrating the church at an alarming pace.
Does the reader think “this is not me”?
Think again. So many who say they are Bible believing Christians have already become accustomed to be fearful of being called “haters” and are trivializing the threat by calling homosexuality “just another sin” despite that from Genesis to Revelation, homosexuality is not “just another sin.” It is a symbol of extreme rebellion against God and harbinger of His wrath. Many deceive themselves comparing a child caught steeling a cookie as “sin” just as sodomy is sin, and evaluate it on the same par saying “sin is sin” a phrase that is never found or taught in scripture.
Probably half of my followers on my Facebook are of this ilk, and I pray they either convert or leave us by the droves. A follower of Christ is meant to sift, not comply. I noticed that we get hailed with fire and brimstone as if a Jew like Netanyahu can do no evil.
There is a healthy balance when it comes to the Jewish people. Folks ask me all the time, “why do Catholics hate Jews and Evangelicals love them?”
They presume by that, that the latter (Evangelical) must have the truth and the former (Catholic) is false as if ‘Jew-blind-love’ is the scale for truth.
History records that Catholics and Jews at times quarreled and so did Protestants and Jews quarreled as well. However, when World War II erupted, Catholics gave more lives to save Jews than any other religion on earth. Pope Pius XII saved over 800,000 Jews from death as recognized by the State of Israel and Raoul Wallenberg, a protestant saved over 100,000 Jews and Dietrich Bonhoeffer who was a German Lutheran pastor saved countless others. At times God will look beyond the affiliation as Christ once favored a Samaritan (Protestant of His day) over the Pharisee (Catholic of His day) in a parable.
SO WHO ARE THESE TWO WITNESSES?
Many times Christians focus on prophecy and try to interpret the mysteries while ignoring the obvious. I see so many sit and calculate Christ’s return looking at Israel as if it is the time-table for everything prophetic.
This is the worst method.
Learn the two sights of viewing prophecy. When Christ returns, keep in mind, that the Two Witnesses will appear and expose all sorts of evil. These Two Witnesses are Christians.
They will be identified as great miracle workers:
“And I will give power unto my two witnesses, and they shall prophesy a thousand two hundred and threescore days, clothed in sackcloth. They are the two olive trees and the two lampstands, and they stand before the Lord of the earth. And if any man will hurt them, fire proceeded out of their mouth, and devoured their enemies: and if any man will hurt them, he must in this manner be killed. These have power to shut heaven that it rain not in the days of their prophecy: and have power over waters to turn them to blood, and to smite the earth with all plagues, as often as they will” (Revelation 11:3-6).
Heed and pay close attention, Scriptures call these two witnesses as “two lampstands”.
Initially there were seven golden lampstands that represents seven churches in Asia Minor. So why would the “two lampstands” change here to simply and exclusively represent only the two individuals?
Indeed, they could be two Christians who represent these two churches, no doubt “These are the two anointed ones who stand by the Lord of the whole earth” (Zechariah 3-4) but we also must not ignore the deeper meaning here on whom these represent: lampstands are churches. These two end-time prophets would arise after a time of apostasy – which is symbolised in the Book of Zechariah by the captivity in Babylon.
Well, since the Apostle Paul compares the Church to the Olive Branches (wild) that have been grafted into the commonwealth of Israel, two spring, that after much hardship and apostasy, they will be rejuvenated.
To understand this, we can see an example from the past. If one examines the seven churches (seven lampstands), there are only two that were found worthy when Christ appeared to John:
Ephesus (Revelation 2:1-7) – the church that had forsaken its first love (2:4) and found unworthy. Pergamum (Revelation 2:12-17) – the church that needed to repent of allowing false teachers (2:16) and at the time was found unworthy. Thyatira (Revelation 2:18-29) – the church that had a false prophetess (2:20) and was found unworthy. Laodicea (Revelation 3:14-22) – the church that was lukewarm and insipid (to God) (3:16) and was found unworthy. Sardis (Revelation 3:1-6) – the church that had fallen asleep and yet called itself awake (3:2) and was also found unworthy. This would be similar to so many we see today while they use scripture to act as ‘worthy’, they are unworthy for many reasons, in that they never adhered to the patristic teachings and the sacraments. Philadelphia (Revelation 3:7-13) – the church that had endured patiently (3:10). Smyrna (Revelation 2:8-11) – the church that would suffer persecution (2:10).
To glean further in our finding as to who these two lampstands represent, it is also crucial to understand, the Two Witnesses, are ministering at the same time span when the daily sacrifice is taken away:
“And from the time that the daily sacrifice is taken away, and the abomination of desolation is set up, there shall be one thousand two hundred and ninety days. Blessed is he who waits, and comes to the one thousand three hundred and thirty-five days. (Daniel 12:11-12)
To Christ, such a warning was very crucial “that when you see the abomination of desolation spoken of by Daniel the prophet” where Antichrist “will suspend [both] the sacrifice and grain offerings” (Daniel 9:27) which is the Communion of Bread Sacrifice that Christ warned in Mark 13:14, Matthew 24:15 instructing us to pay attention to Daniel 9:27 and is exercised by two apostolic succession churches and the churches derived from them. These “Two Lampstands” would be the Catholic and Orthodox and the churches derived from them.
This excludes Evangelicals who refuse to believe the Eucharist is a “sacrifice” and a sacrificial “offering”.
And to bind this sacrament, which is from God, the scripture even left a major clue that many overlook:
“Oh that there were one among you who would shut the gates, that you might not uselessly kindle fire on My altar! I am not pleased with you,” says the Lord of hosts, “nor will I accept an offering from you. For from the rising of the sun even to its setting, My name will be great among the nations [gentiles, two wild olive branches], and in every place incense is going to be offered to My name, and a grain offering that is pure; for My name will be great among the nations [gentiles],” says the Lord of hosts. (Malachi 1:10-11)
This “pure grain offering” links directly to the same “grain offering” in Daniel’s prophecy which Christ instructed us to carefully pay attention to, where Antichrist will stop the “grain offering” and it is during this time the Two Witnesses will be active.
Therefore, the Grain Offering (Communion) is much more important than Evangelicals think. What Malachi prophesied was that basically God will do away with the old sacrificial offering and that God will reach out to the “nations” (the gentiles) with a new system in observing a “grain offering that is pure”.
And when we see that such system includes “incense” which will be “daily” accomplished from “the rising of the sun even to its setting,” such daily practice including “incense” is done as a “sacrificial” system is only practiced under the two-branch apostolic-succession type churches.
The word “incense” is in no way figurative, for if this is true, than the “grain” is also figurative, God forbid.
True churches have incense. This issue is non-negotiable.
Malachi tells us that animal sacrifices will be no more, and the new offering will be ‘grain sacrifice’ accompanied with incense.
Even when Jesus picking wheat in the fields on the Sabbath “his disciples began to pluck heads of grain” (Mark 2:23) and when the Pharisees questioned this, Christ told them:
“Have you never read what David did, when he was in need and was hungry, he and those who were with him: how he entered the house of God, in the time of Abiathar the high priest, and ate the bread of the Presence, which it is not lawful for any but the priests to eat, and also gave it to those who were with him?” (Mark 2:25-26)
Notice that our Lord mentions here, this bread is not just any bread, but was “the bread of the Presence”.
The presence of Who? The presence of God. This bread was also in the Ark of the Covenant, where God was present. This is Mary housing God in her womb.
The Disciples were picking grain, which would be the ingredient for the “grain offering,” the Sacrifice in the Last Supper. It is this same Sacrifice of which Christ said, “This is my body, which is given for you.” (Luke 22:19)
Both the Catholic Church and the Orthodox Church (The Two Lampstands) declare that the Real “Presence” of the Christ-God is in the Eucharist, which is that grain sacrifice prophesied by the prophet Malachi; and this is the Real Presence. This is what Christ foretold when He referenced “the bread of the Presence” which David had eaten and is what Antichrist will attempt to STOP.
Such an action will infuriate apostolic-succession Christians where even in Jerusalem which is also called Egypt, where Islam will control and persecute the churches there and stop the Eucharist. The Antichrist could enter the Church of The Holy Sepulcher and stop the Eucharist as well as the Russian Orthodox Church.
Egypt was the persecutor of God’s people and the Antichrist is also called “Pharaoh of Egypt”.
There are more biblical hints to show that this Antichrist is Muslim from the titles that the Bible ascribes to him. Consider the following titles: the Assyrian, the Prince of Tyre, the King of Babylon, and Pharaoh of Egypt. This may seem rather simple, but if the Bible calls the Antichrist the Assyrian, then isn’t it irresponsible to conclude that the Antichrist will come from Rome or any other European nation?
Why is it that the most popular end-time paradigms completely ignore these titles when attempting to discern the Antichrist’s nation of origin? If the Antichrist is the King of Babylon, then isn’t it only reasonable to conclude that he will rule over the region of ancient Babylon and today we see Turkey’s interest in Iraq? Wouldn’t it be awfully strange to conclude that “the King of Babylon” will rule over Luxemburg, Germany or Rome? Yet innumerable Bible teachers who claim to be literalists do exactly this.
As the King of Tyre, the Antichrist will also rule over Lebanon where we see Hezbollah grows. As the King of Babylon, the Antichrist will rule over Iraq, Iran, and the Arabian Peninsula. As Pharaoh, King of Egypt, the Antichrist will rule over Egypt and become the persecutor of God’s people there. The title King of Tyre (Lebanon) is not some allegory for a European Antichrist, nor is the Biblical declaration that “Lebanon shall fall by The Mighty One” (Isaiah 10:34) an allegorical description of the fall of Rome. It is just what it says it is—Christ Himself will deal with the anti-Israeli elements in Lebanon.
How Antichrist can fit all these titles? How can He be a king of Babylon, a Pharaoh of Egypt, and the Assyrian?
Well, in order to respond to this question, I can ask, how could Jesus come from Egypt, Nazareth, and Bethlehem as the various Scriptures prophesied? Yet, all of the above are true. Antichrist also can be a ruler of Babylon, Assyria, Syria, Lebanon, Egypt, and Turkey as well as “Jerusalem-cum-Egypt.
This is why critics of the Bible keep finding what seem to be contradictions. God ordained it this way so that evil will never get it. They are always busy finding problems while like the church at Sardis (Revelation 3:1-6) – the church that had fallen asleep and yet called itself awake (3:2) for they do not even comprehend the crux of the scriptures, neither do they care of the sacraments, especially the essence of the Eucharist being the Body and Blood of Christ.
Christ defied the tyrannical Pharisees when His Disciples were picking grain from the field, as if to say, “Your priesthood is over as prophesied by Malachi 1. You see these Disciples? this is the new priesthood and this is the new temple. This grain they are picking, this is the new sacrifice.”
It can’t get any clearer than this: this is the Communion bread, the Eucharist, the very sacrament done by only apostolic-succession type churches.
Therefore, I will not address the arguments of transubstantiation vs. consubstantiation, Jesus made it clear and Paul condemns the “unrighteous” as having the spirit of “debate” (Romans 1:29).
Instead, I will direct a Jesus-style challenge to all who are anti-transubstantiation, that is, the daily sacrifice of the Eucharist, they argue, is re-sacrificing Christ. If this is true, the challenge to the common Messianic assumption, regarding Daniel 9, that if such ‘abomination’ will occur only at a rebuilt Temple by the Jews, for this to become true I ask: how could non-apostolic-succession accuse apostolic-succession believers of re-sacrificing Christ when they are accepting the re-institution of Jews re-sacrificing the Messiah who had already come?
We can’t have it both ways. If this is the case, as westerners say “what should be good for the geese (the Jews) should it not also be good for the ganders (apostolic succession churches)?
It is therefore equally astonishing to see these argue, that Jesus was “sacrifice for sin once and for all” as if this debunks transubstantiation, then they turn and support the re-institutution of another literal sacrificial system in the supposed rebuilt temple in Jerusalem.
How could it be possible that if we accept a re-institution of Israel’s old sacrificial system that we have in Malachi a cancelation of it by God Almighty? “One among you [the Jews],” is the Messiah “who would shut the gates” where “I [that is God] will not accept an offering from you [Israel]”.
So here God completely replaces Israel’s sacrificial system, then according to the folly, to only re-institute it in Ezekiel’s temple in Jerusalem?
The fact that such offering is done by the Gentiles (not the Jews) and is called “grain offering” leaves no question, this is a ‘sacrifice’ and is the Christian communion which continues “for ever” fulfilling Exodus 12. Antichrist “put a stop to sacrifice and grain offering” that such an event is so crucial that it signals the countdown of the end and the coming of the Two Witnesses who represent the Two Lampstands.
Perhaps the final Jesus-style question which becomes impossible to answer unless we convert to the apostolic ways is this: If this “grain offering” which is called “sacrifice” is not as significant; why did not Daniel speak of stopping the hymnals, prayers, abolish the Bible, church demolitions … which went on and off throughout history, and yet all this never signaled the Two Witnesses and Christ’s return, yet stopping a “grain offering” does?
This is some awesome “grain offering”.
During this time, where the witnesses are active, in Joel 2:28-29 which promises that in the end days the children will see visions, prophecy and dream dreams:
“And afterward, I will pour out my Spirit on all people. Your sons and daughters will prophesy, your old men will dream dreams, your young men will see visions. Moreover upon my servants and handmaids in those days I will pour forth my spirit.”
“handmaids” are priests and nuns, and the “incense is going to be offered” in Malachi 1 no doubt are churches and “sacrifice” is only conducted by apostolic-succession churches: the Two Lampstands, Orthodox and Catholic and their derivatives.
There are no exceptions here.
THE JERUSALEM-EGYPT ROLE REGARDING THE TWO WITNESSES
As we read the narrative about the Two Witnesses, we see that after these two prophets are killed by the Antichrist (including many of their followers), their dead bodies are left on display in the streets of Jerusalem. This practice of displaying the dead bodies of enemies or criminals in public places is a distinctly Islamic practice and is still done to this day. In typical Palestinian fashion, the two witnesses are finally killed and their bodies are desecrated:
“And when they shall have finished their testimony, the beast that ascended out of the bottomless pit shall make war against them, and shall overcome them, and kill them. And their dead bodies shall lie in the street of the great city, which spiritually is called Sodom and Egypt, where also our Lord was crucified. And they of the people and kindred and tongues and nations (Gentiles) shall see their dead bodies three days and an half, and shall not suffer their dead bodies to be put in graves. And they that dwell upon the earth shall rejoice over them, and make merry, and shall send gifts one to another; because these two prophets tormented them that dwelt on the earth. And after three days and a half the spirit of life from God entered into them, and they stood upon their feet; and great fear fell upon them which saw them. And they heard a great voice from heaven saying unto them, Come up hither. And they ascended up to heaven in a cloud; and their enemies beheld them” (Revelation 11:7-12).
Often times the bodies are even dragged through the streets for all to see. Of course, most of us still remember the stripped body of the U.S. soldier that was dragged through the streets of Mogadishu in 1993 or the charred bodies of Americans strung up in Iraq. The purpose of these acts is to shame the dead and to scare any others who might consider committing a similar “crime.” It is also a sick celebration of victory.
Beyond the fact that Islam has a long-standing pattern of publicly displaying dead bodies after killing them in accordance with Islamic law, we also see that after the Two Witnesses are killed, that the people will celebrate their deaths as if it were Christmas: “And they that dwell upon the earth shall rejoice over them, and make merry, and shall send gifts one to another” (Revelation 11:10)
EMULATING THE TWO WITNESSES
It is amazing that the scoffer always tells us “they only emulate Christ”. While it is true, we are to emulate Christ in all things, but certain things we can never do like revive the dead. We are to emulate all goodness including the two witnesses who will also fight sodomy. Emulating any of the saints is emulating Christ for these reflect Christ’s image in their lives. Women are to emulate Mary the Mother of our Lord and many of the women, saints and biblical figures.
Reviewing the Two Witnesses, remind me of how we too must endure. Theodore, amazingly, I named him Theodore (the Gift of God) when I was still Muslim. Was that sheer accident? My beloved son and I have withstood the onslaught from hypocrites dressed in sheep clothing. At times we wonder who would kill us. Will it be the Muslims? Hebrew Roots? Sodomites? Drug Cartels? False brethren? Fanatic Jews?
The threats come in daily. Would the Two Witnesses be silent on Sodomy in Jerusalem much less Christ would let go had the temple been invaded by Sodomites? Arise O fellow Christian. Arise from thy slumber and serve Christ for greater glory on the heavenly Mount Zion.
I hear the cry of our Lord “Jerusalem, Jerusalem, you who kill the prophets and stone those sent to you, how often I have longed to gather your children together, as a hen gathers her chicks under her wings, and you were not willing.”
The typical comments I get. One lady writes:
“I agree with the position you’ve taken on ‘perpetrators and enablers’, but, my confusion is, that you defend the Catholic church when they are eminently guilty of doing exactly what you condemn in others …”
I replied with:
I became Catholic because they, like the Jews, were guilty of everything under the sun and the ones who discovered such guilt were the un-biggoted most loving folks on earth. You know, folks like you. God bless you Hilary for your wonderful love. One last thing, you spoke of a “confusion”. Why are you confused sister Hilary? The gay agenda infiltrated the Jewish religious community too. In fact, for your sake, I will do an article on the subject tomorrow. Just for you. So stay tuned.
She replied without even getting my hint. The most unintentionally bigoted are the “confused” who are anti-Catholic whom we thank for “all the love”. We had considered becoming Orthodox which gains lesser scorn and one can find lesser reprobates and sodomites, but we chose the most despised title: Catholic. We fight where the fight is needed. Why should we go to the healthy Orthodox when the Catholic Church is filled with the sick? Is this what Christ would want us to do? I infiltrated the Evangelical and now its time to infiltrate the Catholic. I am, after all, on a mission from God.
Righteousness is not what most see from their perspective.
Saints are hated for exposing evil. Two saints here are martyred in Jerusalem. It is obvious that they expose all the evils of Islam, sodomy and all these ugly things we see. So go and do likewise.
