The coming "PA State":
Palestinian institutions ready for statehood: U.N.
The Palestinian Authority is ready to run an independent state but will struggle to make further institutional progress due to the restrictions of the Israeli occupation, the United Nations said on Tuesday.
Without reading any further, this statement alone makes me think of the "Responsibility to Protect" doctrine, posted earlier today.
"In six areas where the U.N. is most engaged, governmental functions are now sufficient for a functioning government of a state," said the report, entitled "Palestinian State-building: A Decisive Period."
It listed the six areas as rule of law and human rights; livelihoods; education and culture; health; social protection; and infrastructure and water.
However, it said the PA could not make significant further advances given the continued Israeli occupation of much of the West Bank and a breakdown in Middle East peace talks.
Interesting. It really does look like they are setting the stage for "Responsibility to Protect", doesn't it?
Direct negotiations aimed at ending the decades-old conflict broke down last September following a dispute over continued Jewish settlement building on the West Bank.
Given the impasse, Palestinian leaders aim to ask the United Nations General Assembly in September for recognition of statehood on all of the territory Israel occupied in 1967, including Gaza -- over which the PA has no control.
the report said the main constraint to the creation and successful running of a Palestinian nation remained the Israeli occupation. Israel still controlled 62 percent of the West Bank, including major road links, it said.
"The current situation leaves Palestinians significantly constrained in terms of movement of people and goods and access to land," the report said.
Israel says the security controls are needed to maintain security in the West Bank, which is home to around 2.5 million Palestinians and 192,000 Israeli settlers.
In other words, Israel may need external forces in order to "confirm" any signed covenant. Interesting.
Also in the news, Joel Rosenberg weighs in on the recent Iranian released video which describes the "coming" of the Mahdi:
Exposure Of Iranian Film About The Coming Of The Messiah Causing Turmoil
The exposure in the Western media of a new Iranian documentary film, “The Coming Is Near” (also translated, ”The Coming Is Upon Us”) about the imminent arrival of the so-called Islamic messiah known as the Twelfth Imam and a soon-coming apocalyptic war with Israel and the West is apparently causing turmoil within the regime in Tehran
“The film reveals the regime’s true ideology and plans for the world,” notes Kahlili. “Esfandiar Rahim Mashaei — President Ahmadinejad’s top adviser and chief of staff — was directly involved with this project...
The Iranian regime never intended for the documentary to be made public. Reports indicate that funds for its production came directly from the Revolutionary Guards: they intended to distribute it en masse throughout the Middle East to incite further uprisings, while calling for the unification of Arabs to overthrow U.S.-backed governments and promising the destruction of Israel and the imminent coming of the Shiite messiah.”
As I noted when the documentary was first released, the Iranian film is full of false teaching (the Twelfth Imam is not the true Messiah, cannot save mankind and will not set up a global Islamic kingdom). It is delivered by false teachers (Iranian clerics) who follow a false religion (Islam).
But it is useful in that it is further evidence that our Lord Jesus Christ was absolutely correct when He warned His disciples in Matthew 24 and Luke 21 that “false messiahs” and “false prophets” will come in the last days before Christ’s own return.
The good news is that the film is helping to accelerate and intensify an on-going conversation among Muslims and Jews throughout the world who are asking, “Who is the Messiah? When will He come? What signs will precede His coming? How shall we recognize Him when He comes? And how shall we live differently in light of His soon arrival?”

Japan ups nuke crisis severity to match Chernobyl
Japan raised the crisis level at its crippled nuclear plant Tuesday to a severity on par with the 1986 Chernobyl disaster, citing high overall radiation leaks that have contaminated the air, tap water, vegetables and seawater.
Japanese nuclear regulators said they raised the rating from 5 to 7 - the highest level on an international scale of nuclear accidents overseen by the International Atomic Energy Agency - after new assessments of radiation leaks from the Fukushima Dai-ichi plant since it was disabled by the March 11 tsunami.
Fukushima nuclear disaster as bad as Chernobyl

Is there any news on the George soros conference?
i dont have cable tv or satellite and my internet is on my phone only however...i watch a lot of weird news like RTWORLD and Al-Jezeera english on PBS. They are reporting on it but only in the sense that its happening and they are working on a one world monetary system. no other info yet that i have heard. MSM here in the u.s.a. tells us nothing!-ally
Yea, I was going to say the same thing as Ally. Not much news over and beyond what we knew going in. Makes one wonder what is going on behind closed doors.
We are so clearly watching the one-world gov't and monetary system being formed. Its amazing IMO.
Yeah. And thanks. Cause for some reason my CPU won't let me read articles on him. And like I said earlier, the news in canada is too consumed with the election that nobody wants.
Scott and Ally
Same here, very little news other than I saw the Italian PM? giving a speech about Libya and I thought to myself 'hm, Italy again' then I carried on dusting and thats about it!
Dusting? Do you use a cloth with pledge or one of those old fashioned dusters?
Waiting for DrNo
ACTUALLY I DO use pledge here and there, but its gotta be beeswax on me wooden bits. I prefer a nice yellow duster, but me old fella's worn out undergarments bring on a nice deep shine - lovely!
Other than that I have to have equipment perched on the end of a long pole cuz I'm vertically challenged.
This is what the newspapers call the 'silly season' when there aint much to report other than the Royal wedding - I'm quite looking forward to a bit o pomp and circumstance :)
Which reminds me, where is DrNofog?
P.S. Dylan is a good Welsh name, I wonder if his roots are in the land of song and sheep? Borada! :)
MARANATHA - please!
DrNo is on a secret CIA sponsored covert operation somewhere in the Middle East....I'm not supposed to talk about it.....:)
Hhuoh ~ sharp intake of breath ~ !
Me and my size 5 mouth! :O
If you are still on this thread - let me know - I want to tell you something, but I don't want this to be scrolled down too far - just let me know if you are still looking at this thread. (no big deal - just something kinda funny)
Eek! Here I am Scott, I check Freds every day.
Tell E.I. :D
just wanted to tell you - over the past several weeks, including a lot of folks who were in a bible study - people who read the blog - were all saying:
"I can't WAIT to meet Sue (in heaven) - she's a HOOT - I LOVE to read her posts because they always make me laugh" etc etc.
Just wanted to share that with you ! :)
You have fans out there!!!
Oh that’s CHARMING!
Where were all these fans when I was ‘aving me HOT FLUSHES?
BIG hugs all round, and be very grateful you only have the ‘virtual’ me. My four lads find me SUCH an embarrassment.
Seriously, that is so lovely, I needed a hug and that was the best. Likewise, I am so looking forward to our big feast together with Jesus. Cheers!
Love and blessings from Sue.
