The Coming Armageddon

The Coming Armageddon

David Burton 2007


     Recently, I received a copy of an e-mail from an Israeli named Solly Ganor who is a resident of Herzelia Pituach, which was dated March 10, 2007. What follows is the essence of that e-mail with minor edits on my part.

     This is a summary of a conversation with an Israeli Christian Arab construction boss, named Francis, who came from a small village in the Galilee called Jish, near the present Kibbutz Sassa. Francis was a teacher, but he couldn't make a living at it and decided to join his father-in-law in the construction business. Judging by the large Honda he was driving, he apparently was doing well in his new profession.

     With regard to the present situation in the Middle East, about Hamas winning the elections in Gaza, the situation of the Israeli Arabs, and the last Lebanese war against Hezbolla, Francis reported that, the Christians are in a difficult situation in Israel. Unfortunately, the Moslems and especially the extreme Islamist section, set the tone. His family who lived in Bethlehem probably since the Crusaders, had to flee for their life. The Moslems forced them out, by threats and even murder. Bethlehem was once predominantly Christian, but is now predominantly Moslem.

    Francis said that Israel's bungling war against a few thousand Hezbolla fighters which they should have crushed no matter what, considering the importance of the outcome, had created a completely new situation, not only for the middle East, but globally. Israel's inept leadership totally misunderstood the importance of winning the war.

     Francis believed that the whole Moslem world, not only the Arabs, simply couldn't believe that the mighty Israeli Army that defeated the combined Arab forces in six days in 1967, and almost captured Cairo and Damascus in 1973, couldn't defeat a small army of Hezbolla men. As usual the Moslems see things the way they want to see things. Most think that the present generation of Israelis have gone soft and can be defeated.

     The American bungling of the war in Iraq only added to their conviction that victory not only over Israel but also over the West is not only possible, but certain. The ramifications of these two bungling wars may bring an Islamic bloody Tsunami all over the West, not only in Israel. The sharks smell blood and these 2 wars have given them the green light to attack sooner than they had in mind.

     Israel's and our (America's) problem is that we are on the defensive and they have the option to choose the time and the places when and where to attack and there is nothing much we can do about it.

     Francis asked when will we realize that half measures don't work with people who are willing to die by the thousands for Allah to achieve their goal? In their eyes, the Western World is simply an abomination on earth that has to be wiped out. During the last generation, hundreds of thousands of children have been taught all over the Moslem world in Madrass schools to become martyrs for Allah in order to kill the infidels. These youngsters are not only ready to do it, but are actually in the process of doing it. Bombs are going off all over the world killing and maiming thousands of people, not just on 9/11 in the US, but in London, Madrid, in Bali, in Africa, India, Bengladesh, Egypt, Saudi Arabia and countless other places. The first signs of the Islamic Tsunami are already here, but the West doesn't understand, or doesn't want to understand what is coming.

     We Americans, instead of realizing that this is as bad as World War II, or even worse, are going to pull out of Iraq, handing it over to Iran on a silver platter. Next may come the Saudis and the rest of the Gulf states. When dirty bombs will go off all over the Western towns who is going to stop the Iranians? Now is the time to stop them, not only because they are developing nuclear bombs, but because Iran has become the base for all Islamic terrorists. They supply, money, men and weapons to Islamic terrorists around the world, quite often trough their diplomatic mail. Billions of petro-dollars that are pouring into Iran are being funneled into terrorist organizations world-wide. They believe, and perhaps rightly so, that the West will do nothing to stop them in achieving their goals.

     Is history repeating itself? Are the Iranians making the same mistake that Hitler made when he attacked Poland? The Iranians rely on the West doing nothing about their development of nuclear bombs. They also rely on their secret weapon: an inexhaustible supply of Islamic 'Suicide Bombers', some of them who are already planted all over the Western World. Besides the Islamic countries that supply these suicide bombers, a second front has been opened, and that is the internet with more than 5,000 Islamic web sites, brain washing and urging young Moslems to become martyrs for Allah. They especially target young Moslems who live in Europe and the West in general. The Western intelligence authorities consider these web sites a bigger threat than the Iranian atomic bomb. al Queda recently made a television broadcast that promised a devastating attack against its enemies this spring. As we all know, al Queda doesn't make empty threats.

     Francis couldn't understand why the Iranians are bothering to develop atom bombs and bring the whole world down on them when every suicide bomber is a potential atom bomb, or a biological, chemical or dirty bomb that can be no less devastating than an atom bomb. We Americans and the Europeans appear to have no defense against this type of war.

     Francis warned that Israel needed to better prepare itself for another round against Hezbolla. It would not be not long in coming. It depends on the Iranians to give the word. This time Israel will have to destroy Hezbolla no matter what the cost. Of course, the next round against Hezbolla may involve the Syrians and the Iranians. The Iranians have declared that they will not allow Hezbolla to be defeated no matter what and they may launch their missiles against Israel. So will the Syrians. It is unlikely that Israel will accept its destruction and may use their nuclear arsenal if the West will not come to their help. Perhaps the Book of Revelations is not so wrong in describing that the end of the world would start at Armageddon, which is known as Har-Megiddo in Israel. The Book of Revelations announces that the last battle would be fought at Armageddon between the 'Forces of good and the forces of evil.'

     According to Francis, there are two ways to avoid an Armageddon. One can be a major war which the West can win. As in World War II, had the West attacked the Germans in 1936 the war would have lasted not more than a month with very few casualties. Their procrastination resulted in World War II with all its consequences. Eventually, the West will have to tackle the Iranians. It is better that they do it now to avert a world catastrophe later. With Iran defeated the Islamic onslaught will lose its base, and it may be the turning point in history to defeat the menace of extreme Islam. Francis felt that the majority of the Moslems don't want this confrontation anyway. Francis (and many Israelis) feel that Hezbolla will attack again as soon as they are fully re-equipped and it will likely be during the coming summer, while Israel is still in military and political turmoil."

     The second way to avoid Armageddon, according to Francis, is to follow the ways of Russia's Putin. He assassinates his enemies without blinking an eye. Assassination of the four or five Mullahs who run the show, Achmenijad, and a few more Iranian fanatics, and the war can be avoided. It may be difficult to do, but not impossible. With today's hi-tech technology it's almost certain that new weapons against individuals are being prepared right now. It would be a better way of handling the matter than an all-out war against Islam. It would be better to cut off the heads of the snake than to go to war with Islam.
