Brothers, Today we will celebrate Rosh Hashanah. You all know about this holy day.But let me remind you today one more time what is this day stand for and why do we all live for.Rosh Hashanah literally in Hebrew ("Head of the year") is commonly called the Jewish New Year. It begins at sundown on September 16. The blast of the Shofar (ram's horn) calls us to humble ourselves and recognize our need for God's grace/forgiveness of all our sins and to get ready for the return of our Messiah/Jesus. Let me remind you the sound of His Return. Listen to it here:
15 Then the seventh angel sounded: And there were loud voices in heaven, saying, “The kingdoms of this world have become the kingdoms of our Lord and of His Christ, and He shall reign forever and ever!” 16 And the twenty-four elders who sat before God on their thrones fell on their faces and worshiped God, 17 saying: “We give You thanks, O Lord God Almighty, The One who is and who was and who is to come, Because You have taken Your great power and reigned. 18 The nations were angry, and Your wrath has come, And the time of the dead, that they should be judged, And that You should reward Your servants the prophets and the saints, And those who fear Your name, small and great, And should destroy those who destroy the earth.” 19 Then the temple of God was opened in heaven, and the ark of His covenant was seen in His temple. And there were lightnings, noises, thunderings, an earthquake, and great hail. Revelation 11:15-19 15 وَنَفَخَ الْمَلاَكُ السَّابِعُ فِي بُوقِهِ فَسُمِعَتْ أَصْوَاتٌ عَالِيَةٌ فِي السَّمَاءِ تَقُولُ: «قَدْ صَارَ مُلْكُ الْعَالَمِ لِرَبِّنَا وَمَسِيحِهِ. إِنَّهُ يَمْلِكُ إِلَى أَبَدِ الآبِدِينَ».
19 وَانْفَتَحَ هَيْكَلُ اللهِ فِي السَّمَاءِ، وَظَهَرَ تَابُوتُ الْعَهْدِ فِي دَاخِلِهِ. وَحَدَثَتْ بُرُوقٌ وَأَصْوَاتٌ وَرُعُودٌ وَزَلْزَلَةٌ، وَسَقَطَ بَرَدٌ كَبِيرٌ. ﻳﻮﺣﻨﺎ ﺭﺅﻳﺎ 11 Yes, this is the meaning behind this festival. We all ask God to forgive our sins, we repent and reconcile with one another and ask Him to write our names in the Book of the Life. As you already know no one of us will see and enter the Kingdom of God unless our names will be written by God in the Book of Life. This is what God taught us on the pages of the ancient Scripture called as the Torah/Bible and what the Jewish traditions (like the Islamic Hadith) teach us every year. God shared with us the perspectives of the coming Day of Judgment where all of us will be present to receive the rewards or punishment for murders and crimes called as sins.
The Great White Throne Judgment 11 Then I saw a great white throne and Him who sat on it, from whose face the earth and the heaven fled away. And there was found no place for them. 12 And I saw the dead, small and great, standing before God, and books were opened. And another book was opened, which is the Book of Life. And the dead were judged according to their works, by the things which were written in the books. 13 The sea gave up the dead who were in it, and Death and Hades delivered up the dead who were in them. And they were judged, each one according to his works. 14 Then Death and Hades were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death.15 And anyone not found written in the Book of Life was cast into the lake of fire. Revelation 20:11-15 11 ثُمَّ رَأَيْتُ عَرْشاً عَظِيماً أَبْيَضَ هَرَبَتِ السَّمَاءُ وَالأَرْضُ مِنْ أَمَامِ الْجَالِسِ عَلَيْهِ، فَلَمْ يَبْقَ لَهُمَا مَكَانٌ.
As you can see that anyone and even children will be judged by God for their crimes/sins against God and people. These books could be the ancient Scriptures of the Torah/Bible and another Book is the Book of Life. God writes there down the names of the people who are saved from hell/death through FAITH in the Son of God.
So, there are some Jewish traditions associated with the festival of Rosh Hashanah. We greet one another by saying, "La shanah tova tikatevu," which means, "May your name be inscribed for a good year." The "inscribing" refers to the Book of Life, which according to Jewish tradition, closes ten days later. Muslims, let me say it to you today: "May your name be inscribed for a good year in the Book of Life." Amen. Amen. So, our names have been forever inscribed in the Lamb's Book of Life. Has your name been forever inscribed in the Book of Life of the Son of God/the Lamb of God?
In the Talmud tractate on Rosh Hashanah, it states that three books of account are opened on Rosh Hashanah, wherein the fate of the wicked, the righteous, and those of an intermediate class are recorded. The names of the righteous are immediately inscribed in the Book of Life, and they are sealed "to live." During ten days of celebration of Rosh Hashanah, until Yom Kippur, people have to reflect, repent and become righteous; the wicked are "blotted out of the Book of the Living forever." The Jewish Tradition/Talmud i.e. the Oral Law says: "The Holy One said, 'on Rosh Hashanah recite before Me [verses of] Sovereignty, Remembrance, and Shofar blasts (malchuyot, zichronot, shofrot): Sovereignty so that you should make Me your King; Remembrance so that your remembrance should rise up before Me. And through what? Through the Shofar.' (Rosh Hashanah 16a, 34b)"
During this festival we choose to look back and reflect and commemorate the closing of a year and the beginning of the next. Our past was finished, our future is ahead of us. Will you have the future in the Kingdom of God or will you perish in the Lake of Fire after your Judgment Day? Is the King of Israel Jesus your King? Is He your God?
Rosh Hashanah is described in the Torah as “Yom Teru'ah”, a day of sounding [the Shofar])/Feast of Trumpets. This day is HOLY for God. But why? Rosh Hashanah is also referred to in the Torah as Sabbath or meditative rest day, and a "holy day to God".
The Feast of Trumpets 23 Then the Lord spoke to Moses, saying, 24 “Speak to the children of Israel, saying: ‘In the seventh month, on the first day of the month, you shall have a sabbath-rest, a memorial of blowing of trumpets, a holy convocation. 25 You shall do no customary work on it; and you shall offer an offering made by fire to the Lord.’” Leviticus 23: 23-25 23 وَقَالَ الرَّبُّ لِمُوسَى: 24 «أَوْصِ بَنِي إِسْرَائِيلَ وَقُلْ لَهُمْ: يَكُونُ لَكُمُ الْيَوْمُ الأَوَّلُ مِنَ الشَّهْرِ السَّابِعِ (أَيْ شَهْرِ أَيْلُولَ سَبْتَمْبَرَ) يَوْمَ عُطْلَةٍ فِيهِ تَحْتَفِلُونَ احْتِفَالاً مُقَدَّساً، تَنْفُخُونَ فِيهِ بِالأَبْوَاقِ.
So, Rosh Hashanah is an annual day of accounting for one's actions. The blast of the Shofar at Rosh Hashanah is not just a call to repentance, but a reminder of Jesus' return. He will return to establish His millennium Reign on earth. He and His angels and saints/believers will govern on earth for 1,000 years. "For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel and with the trumpet of God. And the dead in Messiah will rise first" (1Thessalonians 4:16). 16 لأَنَّ الرَّبَّ نَفْسَهُ سَيَنْزِلُ مِنَ السَّمَاءِ حَالَمَا يُدَوِّي أَمْرٌ بِالتَّجَمُّعِ، وَيُنَادِي رَئِيسُ مَلاَئِكَةٍ، وَيُبَوَّقُ فِي بُوقٍ إِلهِيٍّ، عِنْدَئِذٍ يَقُومُ الأَمْوَاتُ فِي الْمَسِيحِ أَوَّلاً. ﺍﻻﻭﻝ ﺗﺴﺎﻟﻮﻧﻴﻜﻲ 4 God is pleased with new beginnings, and He wants us to celebrate and enjoy His goodness, past, present and future. But our choices determine our destination and if we are against the God of Israel then we will be unable to share the future of God in His Kingdom!
Rosh Hashanah ushers in the Ten Days of Awe, culminating in Yom Kippur (the Day of Atonement). This is the most solemn day on the Jewish calendar, and this year it begins at sundown on September 25.
Literally "the Day of Atonement," Yom Kippur concludes the Ten Days of Awe. It is the holiest and most somber day of the year.
The Day of Atonement 26 And the Lord spoke to Moses, saying: 27 “Also the tenth day of this seventh month shall be the Day of Atonement. It shall be a holy convocation for you; you shall afflict your souls, and offer an offering made by fire to the Lord. 28 And you shall do no work on that same day, for it is the Day of Atonement, to make atonement for you before the Lord your God. 29 For any person who is not afflicted in soul on that same day shall be cut off from his people. 30 And any person who does any work on that same day, that person I will destroy from among his people. 31 You shall do no manner of work; it shall be a statute forever throughout your generations in all your dwellings. 32 It shall be to you a sabbath of solemn rest, and you shall afflict your souls; on the ninth day of the month at evening, from evening to evening, you shall celebrate your sabbath.” Leviticus 23: 26-32 26 وَقَالَ الرَّبُّ لِمُوسَى: 27 «وَيَكُونُ الْيَوْمُ الْعَاشِرُ مِنْ هَذَا الشَّهْرِ السَّابِعِ يَوْمَ كَفَّارَةٍ، تَحْتَفِلُونَ فِيهِ احْتِفَالاً مُقَدَّساً، وَتُذَلِّلُونَ نُفُوسَكُمْ، وَتُقَرِّبُونَ مُحْرَقَاتٍ لِلرَّبِّ، 28 وَتَتَوَقَّفُونَ فِيهِ أَيْضاً عَنْ أَعْمَالِكُمْ، لأَنَّهُ يَوْمُ كَفَّارَةٍ لِلتَّكْفِيرِ عَنْكُمْ أَمَامَ الرَّبِّ إِلَهِكُمْ. 29 وَكُلُّ نَفْسٍ لاَ تَتَذَلَّلُ فِي هَذَا الْيَوْمِ تُسْتَأْصَلُ مِنْ بَيْنِ شَعْبِهَا 30 وَأُبِيدُ كُلَّ مَنْ لاَ يَتَوَقَّفُ عَنْ عَمَلِهِ فِي هَذَا الْيَوْمِ. 31 إِيَّاكُمُ الْقِيَامَ بِعَمَلٍ مَا. إِنَّهَا فَرِيضَةٌ دَائِمَةٌ عَلَيْكُمْ جِيلاً بَعْدَ جِيلٍ حَيْثُ تُقِيمُونَ. 32 إِنَّهُ سَبْتُ رَاحَةٍ لَكُمْ تَتَذَلَّلُونَ فِيهِ، فَتَسْتَرِيحُونَ مِنْ مَسَاءِ الْيَوْمِ التَّاسِعِ حَتَّى مَسَاءِ الْيَوْمِ التَّالِي». ﺍﻟﻼﻭﻳﻲ 23
In ancient times, one day of the year during the Yom Kippur, the High Priest entered the placed called “the Holy of Holies” in the Jewish Temple (God’s presence was there) to put the blood of the sacrificed animal on the altar as a sin offering. Through faith, obedience to God's precise instructions resulted in atonement, or covering, for sin. Today, Yom Kippur is a day of fasting and reflecting upon one's sin. Why? To repent, remorse and be forgiven of our sins and cleansed by the blood of Sacrifice of the Son of God on the Cross. Only in this case God will write our names in the Book of Life.
After that we will celebrate another festival called as “Sukkot”, or the Feast of Tabernacles, which begins at sundown on September 30 and runs through sundown October 7, 2012. Sukkot is a powerful reminder of how God tabernacled with our Fathers in the past in the wilderness after He saved Jews from their slavery of Egypt, how He continues to live among us today and how He will ultimately dwell with us forever, through Jesus who lives and reigns in the hearts of those who believe in Him. Moreover Jesus will reign literally on earth during His millennium Reign. Will you reign with Him? He invites you! He is our God! He is equal to His Father! The Feast of Tabernacles also contains two powerful elements, water and light, that foreshadowed Messiah, who is gives us Living Water or, in other words- the Water of Life to survive in the desert of our life. He is the Light of the world.
Let me finish our consideration of these holy festivals by offering you to watch a Summary of what I have taught you about the Kingdom of the Messiah/ Palestine/the Holy Land and Al Aqsa. May the God of Israel save all of you and write down all your names and names of your relatives in the Book of Life. Amen. Amen.
God says: Moreover I will appoint a place for My people Israel, and will plant them, that they may dwell in a place of their own and move no more; nor shall the sons of wickedness oppress them anymore, as previously, since the time that I commanded judges to be over My people Israel, and have caused you to rest from all your enemies. Also the Lord tells you that He will make you a house. 2 Samuel 7: 10-11 10 وقَدِ اخْتَرْتُ مَكاناً لِشَعبِيَ إسْرائِيلَ. زَرَعْتُهُمْ وَأعْطَيتُهُم أرْضاً يَعِيشُونَ فيها، فَلا يُضْطَرُّونَ إلَى التَّنَقُلِ بَعْدَ اليَوْمِ. وَلا يَعُودُ الخُطاةُ يُذَلِّلُونَهُمْ كَما في الماضِي، 11 عِنْدَما عَيَّنْتُ قُضاةً لِيَقُودُوا شَعبِيَ إسْرائِيلَ. فَالآنَ، أمْنَحُكَ السَّلامَ مَعَ أعْدائِكَ. أنا اللهَ أعِدُكَ بِأنْ أجعَلَ بَيتَكَ بَيتَ مُلُوكٍ. صموئيل الثاني 7
Let’s now examine what the God of Israel says about Israel and Palestine and the future War in Jerusalem and the reign of the Christ:
ساعتان من المعلومات والأسئلة، ثلاث دكاترة يشاركون في الحلقة، مراجع علمية وإسلامية توثق كل هذه المعلومات. فهل كان محمد صادقا في دعواه أم كاذبا أم مريضا؟ وهل يمكن تشخيص حالته من الناحية العلمية؟ وهل هناك أعراض ظهرت على محمد تنطبق على نوع معين من الأمراض العصبية والنفسية المعروفة لدينا اليوم؟ حلقة تحتاج إلى وقفة ومراجعة التراث الإسلامي كله.
2 Corinthians 7:1 Having therefore these promises, dearly beloved, let us cleanse ourselves from all filthiness of the flesh and spirit, PERFECTING HOLINESS IN THE FEAR OF GOD. Hebrews 12:28 Wherefore we receiving a kingdom which cannot be moved, let us have grace, whereby we may SERVE GOD ACCEPTABLY WITH REVERENCE AND GODLY FEAR
Fellowship with God means YOU Arabs and Muslims can be called sons of God. You can be forgiven of ALL your sins! You can be adopted by God THROUGH your Faith in His Son Jesus. Can you call Jesus the Son of God? Is He God in your life? Have you given Him absolute control of your life and future?If not, do is right NOW! Pray now to the LORD and accept His forgiveness of all your sins through FAITH in His Son – God Jesus Christ! Pray God right now And be saved! God is bringing Judgement. Return of the Lord Jesus and His Judgement day should make difference in our behavior. Live your best in purity. Be excited about meeting with the Lord. You should anxiously await with joyful anticipation of the Lord’s return. If your hearts is filled with anticipation, excitement and joy, it indicates that you are walking with the Lord. If you are NOT sure and confident that if you would die today you would go to Heaven, it means you need to get right with God. If you never said- YES- to Jesus, do it today! If you have fallen away from the Lord, come back to Him today.
We will close with prayers: Father, we believe that Jesus is coming again. We believe we need to be ready. And Lord I am praying about any person who is reading my message and if they dont have confidence that they are ready for Your return, help them to come to You today and get right with You now. Amen.
First, recognise brother, that you are sinner. Be sorry for your sin. And ask God to forgive you right now. The way as we do that TROUGH PRAYER. That’s how we communicate with God.I’d like to lead you in prayer. If you want Christ to forgive your sins. If you want to know that when you will die you will go to Heaven then pray this prayer with me right now:
God, I know I am a sinner. And I am sorry for what I have done. And I turn from my sin now and ask You to forgive me. Thank You that Your Son Jesus Christ died on the cross and shed His blood for me. Be my Savior and my Lord. And be my friend. I want to follow You from this day forward. Fill me with Your Spirit. And help me to be Your disciple. Thank You for accepting me. Thank You for forgiving me. Thank You that I am now YOURS. In Jesus’ name I pray. Amen.
If you sincerely repented of all of your sins, confessed them to God and asked Him to forgive you then WELCOME to the family of God. Now you are adopted by God. Now you became His son and His inheritance. His angels have written your name in the Book of Life. And you have the BRIGHT FUTURE.
God Jesus said: “I tell you the truth, whoever hears my word and believes him who sent me has eternal life and will not be condemned; he has crossed over from death to life. John 5:24
Walk with God and live eternally Arab nation! Amen. Rev. 4:8 “Holy, holy, holy is the Lord God Almighty, who was, and is, and is to come.” Brothers, God Jesus is COMING BACK to us to the earth. Be prepared to LIVE with Him and not to die without Him! Repent and make your ways straight. To make your ways straight, then, please the Lord in all you do by BELIEVING in His Son Jesus Christ. Turn away from a life of sin to a life of righteousness (Rom. 12:21). This is the way of peace (Luke 1:79). It is also the way to prosperity, blessings, answered prayer, joy and every good thing (Prov. 13:21; 1 John 3:22; Heb. 13:21). If you prayed this simple prayer above or if you need more information or still have questions about who Jesus is or if you want to believe in God Jesus then please email me and contact me (contacts are below) because we should be together. God called us as believers in Him or CHURCH.

Re: Christian Allah is ONE!- Tawhid in the Holy Bible
Originally posted by Sazie Johnson: Hello Dr. Muhammad Madian,
This is your question: “WHICH GOD THAT WILL BE THE FATHER OR THE SON????? ONE ISSUE AND ONE ISSUE ONLY IS TO BE RESOLVED !!!!! WHO IS THE TRUE GOD IN THIS UNIVERSE THAT DESERVES TO BE WORSHIPPED ???????”
Let me explain it this way: A woman goes to the market and buys a basket. She buys a apple and puts it in the basket. She also buys an orange and puts it in the basket. But that is not all. She also buys a pear and puts it in the basket. As she goes home, she puts the basket on her head and walks the streets.
Here is the question: How many basket is on the woman’s head? Some will say because the woman has three different kind of fruits in the basket that means the woman has three baskets on her head.
Dr. Muhammad Madian, do you believe the woman has three baskets on her head? Of course not. The woman has only one basket on her head, and within this one basket are three fruits: (1), apple, (2) orange, and (3) pear.
Dr. Muhammad Madian, the basket is what we called God. Just as the basket has three fruits within, God has three Natures within. Just as you will not say, “The woman has three baskets on her head,” we do not say we have three gods
Re: Return to me Originally posted by Ella: Originally posted by Sazie Johnson: Mr. Muhammad Madian,
You sent us clippings to show that people are accepting Islam. Do you really think that God is interested in majority? Do you really think truth is made right by majority? Do you really believe darkness will overcome light, or Islam will overcome Christianity?
Quran 3:54-55 reads, “And (the unbelievers) plotted and planned, and Allah too planned, and the best of planners is Allah.” “Behold! Allah said: “O Jesus! I will take thee and raise thee to Myself and clear thee (of the falsehoods) of those who blaspheme; I will make those who follow thee superior to those who reject faith, to the Day of Resurrection: Then shall ye all return unto me, and I will judge between you of the matters wherein ye dispute.”
One scholar comments on the verse: “The first time I read this verse [3:54] in the Koran, I could hardly believe my eyes. Even today, any Muslims I discuss this verse with is shocked. In the Koran, God tells all Muslims that the followers of Jesus will be exalted above the disbelievers until the Day of Resurrection. While there are some verses in the Koran that promise the world to the Muslims people if they follow its teachings, these are followed up with predictions that they will disobey their holy book, and not uphold its commands. God’s prediction that the Christians will succeed in doing so is even clearer in the following verse.” (Ibid., pp. 103-104)”
Then he concluded: “A Muslim may wish to argue that these verses refer to Muhammad and the Muslims as those who truly believe in Christ and dominate till the Resurrection Day. This explanation fails to resolve the issue. The passages do not say that Christ’s followers would only prevail from the time of Muhammad’s advent, but from the time that Christ was taken to God and unto the Day of Resurrection.”
One faithful and dedicated Muslim said, “What is the difference? I am going to hell anyway.” He quoted Allah in Quran 19:70-7. It reads, “Again We do certainly know best those who deserve most to be burned therein (hell). Not one of you but will pass over it (hell): this is, with thy Lord, a Decree which must be accomplished.”

Re: War in Iraq- Did christian Allah kill Iraqies? Conversation between Walid Saifaddin Ashour and Bahira Omar: Originally posted by Bahira Omar: Salam Walid,
I know you VERY WELL! When I was writing these words in my message I have sent you before, I knew your reaction: Brothers,
God gave us lives. Who dares to take them from God and us?
Does He give birth to people to kill them during jihad?
Does God give you hands to fix a shahyd belt/suicide belt and explode children?
Who legalize bombings and explosion of Jewish children, beautiful Jewish men and women?
The answer is: Islam. Al Qu’an. Ahadith.
We all know it!
That’s why I want to explain you. That ONLY Islam legalizes jihad!!! ONLY Islam calls Muslims to kill people! God in the Bible CLEARLY forbids any killing! He does not legalize what is a crime! Let me remind you His words: And He said to me, “It is done! I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End. I will give of the fountain of the water of life freely to him who thirsts. 7 He who overcomes shall inherit all things, and I will be his God and he shall be My son. But the cowardly, unbelieving, abominable, murderers, sexually immoral, sorcerers, idolaters, and all liars shall have their part in the lake which burns with fire and brimstone, which is the second death.” Revelation 21: 6-8 6 ثُمَّ قَالَ: «قَدْ تَمَّ. أَنَا الأَلِفُ وَالْيَاءُ (الْبِدَايَةُ وَالنِّهَايَةُ). أَنَا أَسْقِي الْعَطْشَانَ مِنْ يَنْبُوعِ مَاءِ الْحَيَاةِ مَجَّاناً. 7 هَذَا كُلُّهُ نَصِيبُ الْمُنْتَصِرِ، وَأَكُونُ إِلَهاً لَهُ، وَهُوَ يَكُونُ ابْناً لِي. 8 أَمَّا الْجُبَنَاءُ وَغَيْرُ الْمُؤْمِنِينَ، وَالْفَاسِدُونَ وَالْقَاتِلُونَ وَالزُّنَاةُ، وَالْمُتَّصِلُونَ بِالشَّيَاطِينِ وَعَبَدَةُ الأَصْنَامِ وَجَمِيعُ الدَّجَّالِينَ، فَمَصِيرُهُمْ إِلَى الْبُحَيْرَةِ الْمُتَّقِدَةِ بِالنَّارِ وَالْكِبْرِيتِ، الَّذِي هُوَ الْمَوْتُ الثَّانِي». ﻳﻮﺣﻨﺎ ﺭﺅﻳﺎ 21 Note Walid: وَالْقَاتِلُونَ What is said here? Does God allows us to be killers of Muslims or christians? No. It means that our religion or better to say our God forbids any killing! That’s why Walid if you would like to kill my family, I should hundred times to think before to act and how to react: to kill you, to protect them or to forgive you… It means Christianity does NOT legalize killing. It is the difference between God who and Islam! Who did sent American troops to Iraq? God? No. American government. If American government God? No. If American government is not God then even American government and American solgiers will be judged by God for crimes during wars. Yes, there are crimes during wars. And any intentional killing of Palestinians children by Israeli solgiers in Palestine will be judged by God too. God gives us His laws and by His laws we will be judged. That’s why God’s laws are the supreme laws for us. That’s why we are subject to God’s laws and even Islamic state laws could be violated by us in Muslim countries is they make us to violate God’s laws!!!! Look Walid how Islam kills your Muslims in Iraq: What are the reasons of the war in Iraq? We all know them. But do you know that the Violence against coalition forces and among various sectarian groups soon led to the Iraqi insurgency, strife between many Sunni and Shia Iraqi groups, and the emergence of a new faction of al-Qaeda in Iraq. In late February 2009, U.S. President Barack Obama announced an 18-month withdrawal window for combat forces, with approximately 50,000 troops remaining in the country “to advise and train Iraqi security forces and to provide intelligence and surveillance”. 2008: It seems very hard to determine how many Muslims have been killed in Iraq due to al-Qaeda’s efforts to insight civil war (it wasn’t the US who bombed the Golden Mosque and ignited the fighting, it wasn’t the US who used chlorine bombs on Sunnis who were changing their minds about al-Qaeda’s brutality). The World Health Organization has decided to try their hand at estimating Bin Laden’s Carnage in Iraq. They have come up with the number 150,000. Which is above the 48,000 one group is estimating, but a fraction of the 600,000 ‘estimated’ by a left wing group. The only thing missing is who they claim is the murderer of all these Muslims. The US doesn’t blow up mosques or markets, and we don’t populate mass graves (something al-Qaeda and Saddam had in common). Some how they just cannot get to the final point of all this – who is to blame for the carnage?? On February 12, 2008, the Qatari daily Al-’Arab published an interview with Al-Qaeda commander in northern Iraq Abu-Turab Al-Jaza’iri. The interview, at an Al-Qaeda hideout in northern Iraq, was conducted according to Al-Qaeda’s stipulations – including no disclosure of the region where it took place and no communications or recording equipment of any kind brought to the site: We Have Been Forced to Withdraw from Several Cities Asked about Al-Qaeda’s position in Iraq, with reference to the U.S. announcement that it had been paralyzed, Al-Jaza’iri replied: “…[The Islamic Republic of Iraq] is alive, striking, bombing, and planning to attack various military targets belonging to the Crusaders and to betrayers of Islam, i.e. the Shi’ites and Kurds who have joined the occupier… “It is true that we have lost several cities and have been forced to withdraw from others, after a large number of [Sunni] tribal leaders betrayed Islam and when their tribe members joined forces against us. However, we are still fighting, and the ‘paralysis’ mentioned by the Crusaders is true only for some of the regions. [Besides,] it is common knowledge that any war always involves advance and retreat, so that [even] in those regions I wouldn’t… Rise and decline of al-Qaeda in Iraq The group officially pledged allegiance to Osama bin Laden’s al-Qaeda network in a letter in October 2004. That same month, the group, now popularly referred to as “Al-Qaeda in Iraq”, kidnapped and murdered the Japanese citizen Shosei Koda. In November, al-Zarqawi’s network was the main target of the U.S. Operation Phantom Fury in Fallujah, but its leadership managed to escape the American siege and subsequent storming of the city. In December, in two of its many sectarian attacks, al-Qaeda bombed a Shi’ite funeral procession in Najaf and the main bus station in nearby Karbala, killing at least 60 in the holy cities of Shia Islam. The group also reportedly took responsibility for the 30 September 2004 Baghdad bombing which killed 41 people, mostly children. In 2005, AQI largely focused on executing high-profile and coordinated suicide attacks, claiming responsibility for numerous attacks which were primarily aimed at Iraqi civilians. The group launched attacks against voters during the Iraqi legislative election in January, a combined suicide and conventional attack on the Abu Ghraib prison in April, and the coordinated suicide attacks outside the Sheraton Ishtar and Palestine Hotel in Baghdad in October. In July, al-Qaeda claimed responsibility for the kidnapping and execution of Ihab Al-Sherif, Egypt’s envoy to Iraq. A July 2005 three-day series of suicide attacks, including the Musayyib marketplace bombing, left at least 150 people dead. Al-Zarqawi claimed responsibility for the September single-day series of more than a dozen bombings in Baghdad, including a September 14 bomb attack, which killed about 160 people (mostly unemployed Shi’ite workers). They claimed responsibility for series of mosque bombings which killed at least 74 people the same month in Khanaqin. The attacks blamed on or claimed by al-Qaeda in Iraq continued to increase in 2006 (see also the list of major insurgent attacks in Iraq). In one of the incidents, two U.S. soldiers (Thomas Lowell Tucker and Kristian Menchaca) were captured, tortured and beheaded by the ISI; in another, four Russian embassy officials were abducted and subsequently executed. Iraq’s al-Qaeda and its umbrella groups were blamed for multiple attacks targeting the country’s Shia Muslim population, some of which AQI claimed responsibility for. The U.S. claimed the group was at least one of the forces behind the wave of chlorine bombings in Iraq which affected hundreds of people (albeit with few fatalities) through the series of crude chemical warfare attacks between late 2006 and mid-2007. During 2006, several key members of the AQI were killed or captured by American and allied forces; this included al-Zarqawi himself, killed on June 7, 2006, his spiritual adviser Sheik Abd-Al-Rahman, and the alleged “number two” deputy leader, Hamid Juma Faris Jouri al-Saeedi. The group’s leadership was then assumed by the man called Abu Hamza al-Muhajir, who was really the Egyptian militant Abu Ayyub al-Masri. The high-profile attacks linked to the group continued through early 2007, as the AQI-led Islamic State claimed responsibility for attacks such as the March assassination attempt on Sunni Deputy Prime Minister of Iraq Salam al-Zaubai, the April Iraqi Parliament bombing, and the May capture and subsequent execution of three American soldiers. Also in May, ISI leader al-Baghdadi was declared to have been killed in Baghdad, but his death was later denied by the insurgents (later, al-Baghdadi was even declared by the U.S. to be non-existent). There were conflicting reports regarding the fate of al-Masri. From March to August, coalition forces fought the Battle of Baqubah as part of the largely successful attempts to wrest the Diyala Governorate from AQI-aligned forces. Through 2007, the majority of the suicide bombings targeting civilians in Iraq were routinely identified by the military and government sources as being the responsibility of al-Qaeda and its associated groups, even when there was no claim of responsibility (as was in the case of the 2007 Yazidi communities bombings, which killed some 800 people in the deadliest terrorist attack in Iraq to date). By late 2007, violent and indiscriminate attacks directed by AQI against Iraqi civilians had severely damaged their image and caused the loss of support among the population, isolating the group. In a major blow to AQI, many former Sunni militants that previously fought along with the group started to work with the American forces (see also below). The U.S. troop surge supplied the military with more manpower for operations targeting the group, resulting in dozens of high-level AQI members being captured or killed. Al-Qaeda seemed to have lost its foothold in Iraq and appeared to be severely crippled. Accordingly, the bounty issued for al-Masri was eventually cut from $5 million down to $100,000 in April 2008. As of 2008, a series of U.S. and Iraqi offensives managed to drive out the AQI-aligned insurgents from their former safe havens such as Diyala and Al Anbar Governorates and the embattled capital of Baghdad to the area of the northern city of Mosul, the latest of the Iraq War’s major battlegrounds.The struggle for control of Ninawa Governorate (the Ninawa campaign) was launched in January 2008 by U.S. and Iraqi forces as part of the large-scale Operation Phantom Phoenix aimed at combating Al-Qaeda activity in and around Mosul, as well as finishing off the network’s remnants in central Iraq that escaped Operation Phantom Thunder in 2007. In 2008, Al-Qaeda bombed the Baghdad’s pet market in February and a shopping centre in March, killing at least 98 and 68 people, respectively. Al-Qaeda in Iraq has long raised money through various activities like kidnapping for ransom, car theft (sometimes killing drivers in the process), and hijacking fuel trucks, that would bring them tens of millions of dollars.According to an April 2007 statement by their Islamic Army in Iraq rivals, AQI was demanding jizya tax and killing members of wealthy families when not being paid. According to both U.S. and Iraqi sources in May 2008, the Islamic State of Iraq has been stepping up its racketeering campaigns as their strictly militant capabilities were on the wane, with especially lucrative activity said to be coming from oil rackets centered on the industrial city of Bayji. According to U.S. military intelligence sources, in 2008 the group resembled a “Mafia-esque criminal gang”.

Who is this God? God of Islam? No! God of Israel who is God of our father Ibrahim. Only He was not involved in this war! Only He is HOLY. Another god who called Muslims to kill Shia and Sunni Muslims during this war is the false god/idol.

that I did get the abundant life too. But like those who complained so they wandered for 40 years in the desert wilderness. I could have wandered in the desert
of life as well but You had different plans for me. You lovingly created good out of evil for You care so much for us. Besides we can not do your will
if we are in the desert. Thank you for scooping me out and placing me on THE ROCK. The solid rock and that is Jesus!! “On the solid rock I stand
All other ground is sinking sand” (On a Solid Rock I Stand-hymn) Your brilliance radiates
this day and forever more Amen! Break these chains; Open this gate!
Break the chains and open the gates for Your children who are seeking after what You have ordained for them!
Let them be freed, O Lord, from the attacks of the enemy, breaking the bonds which are being used to deny them their blessings. I’m so weary of seeing my brothers and sisters being denied the things they’re believing for, Lord God, and I know all good gifts come from You, so break the back of the enemy that he may be torn down and his influence utterly destroyed!!!
Help Your people have strengthened faith, and send more angels to stand beside them, Lord. Help us all to stay the course, with determination and patience, knowing that You hear us and want only the best for us, and that You *will* uphold us in every good thing.

Prayer for Lady Journalist
If so led by the Spirit I ask you to join me in prayer for the American woman journalist who suffered severe beating and sexual assault in Cairo last Friday night.
In the midst of celebration and joy in that city, a victory for the people of Egypt, that woman, who was there covering the events, was brutally and savagely attacked and violated. Our prayers go out to her, her family, and all concerned with this appalling crime. May the Lord bless you and keep you. May the Lord make His face to shine upon you. May the Lord grant you His peace. May this woman, her family, and all who’s hearts break for victims of these crimes, know Your peace. The peace that passes all understanding. When Shiloh come- The Bringer of Peace- there will be Peace of Earth. Til then, all who love the Lord say- Amen. Even so, come Lord Jesus.
From my Prayer Life Journal
I heard a voice “Come Follow” That was all.
Things of this world grow dim;My soul went after Him. I arose and followed “That was all.” Shut in with God in a secret place There in His presence, beholding His face, Finding more power to run the race. OH, I LONG TO BE SHUT IN WITH GOD! DEAREST FATHER, there is so much to be thankful for and to lift my voice in adoration and praise. I hear the morning sea gulls searching for breakfast–as I feel rejuvenated after my little talk with you.You are my salvation, my strength and I rejoice and exalt your Holy name. song for today.,I leave my burdens there at your feet..as I rejoice and exalt your mighty name.
