Behind the Saudi Head Lopping Orgy

From Rob Prince Blog, January 8, 2016

When Israel – Netanyahu in particular, but past Israeli prime ministers as well – wants to “stick it” to Washington, knowing that it could complicate Obama’s agenda some, it announces it is going to build more settlements in the Occupied Territories at a sensitive moment for Washington, the goal being, repeatedly, to sabotage any genuine progress towards a diplomatic solution to the Israeli-Palestinian crisis.

..While it had other goals as well, it seems that the main purpose of Saudi Arabi’a mass execution  was to provoke Iran into overreacting in such a way that the P5+1 agreement (the Iran nuclear deal) would be scuttled. While critical of the Saudi executions, Iran has so far limited its response to a verbal rebuke. It did not take the bait and over-react.

..The Saudi head lopping was the largest mass execution since 1980 when 63 rebels involved in the 1979 rebellion in Mecca were likewise “put to the sword.” This time some 47 people – the most prominent among them the Shi’ite cleric Nimr al Nimra – were executed on January 2 inside prisons in twelve Saudi provinces; 43 were beheaded, the other four executed by firing squads. Most of the others were executed for organizing or participating in a series of al Qaeda-lined attacks in the years after 2003.

..Beyond the cynicism, downright inhumanity and barbarism of these beheading, which merit all the international outcry they are receiving, one must ask the question: what’s the deal? After all, Salman and Al Jubeir knew well that going down such a path would provoke such a vibrant negative reaction. But they didn’t give a hoot about public opinion, did they, as long as they were assured that Washington, other than making a few feckless public statements, would stand behind them. Again, the comparison with Netanyahu’s Israel – immune to criticism as long as the White House considers Israel its strategic ally – comes to mind. As long as Washington – be it the Bush or Obama White House – stand with its regional strategic allies Israel, Saudi Arabia it matters little what the rest of the world thinks.

Naming a school after Joseph Korbel strikes me as odd. He was a high ranking communist party member during the time when his government killed 2 million innocent people. He was kicked out of Yugoslavia under scandalous reasons. He fled his own country to avoid criminal charges.

You cannot be “pro peace, pro life” and worship a WAR GOD.
JUDAS ISCARIOT is alive and preaching from the pulpit of many American Churches.
“Every spirit that does not confess that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is the spirit of Antichrist. He is the spirit of Antichrist who denies that Jesus is the Son of God and the Messiah.” — (I John 2:22; 4:3)
“Every knee shall bow and every tongue shall confess that JESUS IS LORD, to the glory of GOD the FATHER.” Romans 14:11, Philippians 2:11
Any “teacher” who diverts Christians into bowing to the Jewish Temple Priests is a JudasGoat “kissing the cheek” of Christ through HIS Flock, for pieces of silver or foul reasons.
He who blesses Israel Crucifies Christ.
CHRISTians should welcome any Jew that comes to Jesus.
CHRISTians cannot support or aid Israel or the Jewish Nation that DENIES the Lamb of God.
OLD testament / NEW testament
WAR god / PEACE god
OLD covenant / NEW covenant
NEVER FORGIVE or FORGET / FORGIVENESS and LOVE
“The new is in the old concealed, the old is in the new revealed.”
The ESSENCE of Judaism is VENGEANCE
The ESSENCE of CHRISTianity is FORGIVENESS.
ANTI: a prefix meaning “against,” “opposite of,” “antiparticle of,” used in the formation of compound words (anticline); used freely in combination with elements of any origin (antibody; antifreeze; antiknock;;;; ANTICHRIST).
Jesus Christ was not a practicising Jew as he rejected the Sanhedrin Jews. he was born with his new faith that went against the corruption of the Sanhedrin Jews which is why he called them a brood of vipers.
“judeo-christian” or “christian-zionism” is an OXYMORON. “No one can serve two masters. Either you will hate the one and love the other, or you will be devoted to the one and despise the other.” Matthew 6:24
Judeo refuses to even ACKNOWLEDGE CHRIST. Judeo refuses to acknowledge Jesus except to INSULT him and HIS teachings in the NEW Testament. They claim Jesus was the bastard child of a Roman soldier and Mary was a Harlot ……. and “christian” preachers CONDONE this?!?

The LAMB of GOD was the FINAL sacrifice. Rebuilding the Jewish Temple and resuming bloody animal sacrifices repudiates the Crucifixion, the SACRIFICE of Jesus,the NEW Covenant. God chose JESUS CHRIST as His vehicle for world redemption.
“This is my blood of the covenant….” (Matthew 26:28)
“This is my blood of the covenant….” (Mark 14:24)
“This cup is the new covenant in my blood….” (Luke 22:20)
“This cup is the new covenant in my blood….” (1 Corinthians 11:25)
The NEW Covenant replaced the OLD broken covenant.
How many ignore Zionism because to do otherwise means leaving their comfort zone and taking a stand? They do not have a son or neighbour who has lost life or limb to wars on false pretenses.Worse still, not only on false pretenses but also for the sole benefit of greedy WASP-WAR-PROFITEERS, apartheid Israel and the extreme detriment of the international image of the USA.–but these complacent lickspittles prefer to do nothing and feel good about themselves as enforcers of protocol.
King James Bible– Revelation “So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth.”
“No Jew accepts Jesus as the Messiah. When someone makes that faith commitment, they become Christian. It is not possible for someone to be both Christian and Jewish.” “The false gods will be eliminated” — a quote from the Aleinu prayer.
The Jews declared WAR on Christ 2,000 years ago, when they dragged Him before Pilate TWICE demanding His death.
