The Map of the New Middle East - (Map Copyright Lieutenant-Colonel Ralph Peters 2006).                                                                                                                

The following map was prepared by Lieutenant-Colonel Ralph Peters, retired colonel of the U.S. National War Academy, that was published in the Armed Forces Journal in June 2006.  The map does not officially reflect Pentagon doctrine, but it has been used in a training program at NATO's Defense College and at the National War Academy for senior military officers and other military planning circles.

Re-Mapping the “New Middle East”



The world was transfixed with rockets raining down over the Sea of KinneretHere was the land where Jesus sat on the hillside preaching and healing the people overlooking this beautiful Sea of Galilee.  What a different era this was!  The land of Judea was occupied by the forces of RomeToday, the land of Israel is allied with the forces of Rome.  As the Roman troops of Vespasian and Titus surrounded the city of Jerusalem, so today, the forces of NATO in alliance with Rome are at the northern “gates” or the northern border of Israel.  Tomorrow, they may be in Gaza,  Shomron (Samaria), or Syria. 


The nation of Israel was carpet bombing the vital infrastructure of Lebanon, leaving a disastrous legacy of the Israeli Defense Force as the region brute.  It also left many to wonder, what was happening.  The formidable military image of Israel against the Hezbollah militia collapsed.  The Islamic nations were elated as the overwhelming image of Israel was broken and America began to look like a faltering dinosaur.


Unknown to many, this had little to do about captured soldiers.  For military observers, this war appeared to have been planned for months.  This war began as one of the major economic coups came to reality along the Eastern Mediterranean seaboard.  Soon would arrive one of the largest naval armadas ever in military history off the coast of Israel.  What was happening?  How was this international coalition, representing the ancient confederation of Greece and Rome, going to affect the final stages of world’s prophetic history?


With the hanging of the former president of Iraq, the final collapse of the ancient empire of Babylon was now over.  Only one more war and the goal of global supremacy would be within the grasp of the western economic transnationalists, called the Golden Internationale. As we now begin to merge the apocalyptic imagery of the prophets of Israel, we begin to flesh in these symbolic “global force” images


It was the angel Gabriel that told the Prophet Daniel, that these apocalyptic images were the imperial powers that affected the Jewish people while they lived in the land of Israel.   Yet, they would represent symbolically the same global forces that would be resurrected in these modern days.  


What is amazing is that the angel Gabriel told Daniel that the vision of the ram and the he-goat was a vision for the “time of the end.”  There would be a day in the future when National Israel would rise again.   The apocalyptic images would be of those same imperial powers that would affect Daniel’s people, the Jews, “many days in the future”, when the “appointed time” at the “end shall be.”


Daniel 8:17,19, 26 (parts)–Understand, son of man, that the vision refers to the time of the end…Look, I am making known to you what shall happen in the latter time of the indignation; for at the appointed time the end shall be…therefore seal up the vision, for it refers to many days in the future.”


For the first time since the “last days” that began with the resurrection of Yahshua (Jesus) from the tomb, we can now see the rising confrontation of the last two imperial forces that will affect the reestablished Nation of Israel.  It was the late Pope John Paul II that most eloquently spoke of these two imperial forces;


(1)   The Golden Internationale of the western occidental economic globalists, transnationalists and internationists.  These are the European Union (resurrected ancient Rome) with the “face of Greece” of the United States of America.

(2)   The Red Internationale of the eastern oriental Leninist-Marxist Red Communists giants of Russia and China.  These two are now aligned with the emerging Islamic giant, the Shi’ite Nation of Iran (ancient Persia). 


Yet, the final global power, according to Pope John Paul II, would be the Black Internationale, the universal Roman Catholic Church.   This church would be empowered by her military orders; the Jesuits, the Opus Dei, and the Knights of Malta. The semi-final match of the “Great Chess Game” for world dominion may be about to begin. Yet, we must first ask one question, “What happened to ancient Babylon?” 


In the next three articles, we will outline in detail the preparation for this military confrontation between the Golden Internationale of NATO (the military arm of the European Union) with the vast aerial and marine power of the United States in opposition to the Red Internationale of Russia and China in alliance with the emerging “Nuclear Iran.” 


The Opening Salvo of War


It was on the 12th of Tammuz, 2006 that a strange event happened.  This was the day of infamy when the forces of Babylon under King Nebuchadnezzar and six hundred years later, the forces of Rome under the Emperor Vespasian breeched the northern walls of Jerusalem.  As this day heralded the fall of Jerusalem and the semi-autonomy of the Jewish people, so also it may herald the fall of the semi-autonomy of the Nation of Israel. 


For those who protest that the Nation of Israel is an autonomous nation, they may choose to reconsider.  We witness the evidence today that the Nation of Israel is under the “spell” or maybe the “force” behind the Golden Internationale.


Boldly moving outside the border skirmishing between the IDF (Israeli-Defense Force) and the Hezbollah military militia positions in southern Lebanon, a Hezbollah commando militia unit attacked with a nighttime raid that ended by abducting two Israeli soldiers on the northern borders of Israel. So began what BibleSearchers called the War with Hezbollah as the Sword of Vengeancebetween the 17th of Tammaz and the 9th of Av.


Babylon has Fallen – the Hanging of Saddam Hussein


The Hanging of Saddam Hussein, the Resurrected King Nebuchadnezzar of Babylon


It was the Prophet Daniel who introduced to the Hebrews the influence of the four main imperial forces that would affect the Jewish people from his day clear to the time of the end; the Babylonians, the Persians, the Greeks, and Romans.


We remind ourselves that it was in the third year of Cyrus the Great, the Emperor of the Medes and the Persians, when Daniel was standing on the banks of the Tigris RiverAt that time, Gabriel the angelic prince for the nations of the world came to visit him.  Here in all his splendor was a super-dimensional being that was described by Daniel.


Daniel 10:5- 6 – “I lifted my eyes and looked, and behold, a certain man clothed in linen whose waist was girded with gold of Uphaz! His body was like beryl, his face like the appearance of lightning, his eyes like torches of fire, his arms and feet like burnished bronze in color, and the sound of his words like the voice of a multitude.”


Daniel was taken on that visionary heavenly journey in the mystical merkavah (chariot). There he was informed by Gabriel that during the three weeks that Daniel was mourning, he (Gabriel) was trying to get to Daniel with a message to help Daniel understand “what will happen to your people in the latter days, for the vision refers to many days yet to come.” (Daniel 10:14) Gabriel, though, was hindered by one of the inter-dimensional angels of the nations, the angelic “Prince of Persia”.  It took the “chief prince of the angels”, Michael, the angelic “Prince of Israel” to come to Gabriel’s assistance to overcome the resistance of the Prince of Persia.  Here we begin to see the inter-dimensional struggle between the angelic forces of good and the angelic forces of evil that are being fought in the heavenly dimensions as we fight these same wars in the earthly dimensions.


Michael the Archangel in Battle with Satan, the Dragon – Digital Art by Ted Larson


Revelation 12:7-12 – “And war broke out in heaven: Michael and his angels fought with the dragon; and the dragon and his angels fought, but they did not prevail, nor was a place found for them in heaven any longer. So the great dragon was cast out, that serpent of old, called the Devil and Satan, who deceives the whole world; he was cast to the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.


Then I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, ‘Now salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God and the power of His Christ have come, for the accuser of our brethren (Hebrews) who accused them before our God day and night, has been cast down.  And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony, and they did not love their lives to the death.  Therefore rejoice, O heavens, and you who dwell in them!  Woe to the inhabitants of the earth and the sea! For the devil has come down to you, having great wrath, because he knows that he has a short time.”


For two heavenly days or two thousand earthly years, since the death and resurrection of Yahshua (Jesus) the Christ of His Father the God of Israel, the dark forces of that mighty angelic cherub called Lucifer have been raging like a roaring lion.  Lest we forget, this conflict between Christ and Satan in the heavens has now descended and focused on this planet earth for the last two thousand years. 


The ancient Hebrews knew of this eschatological war between forces of good and evil.  It was the imagery of the War Scroll of the Essenes in the Qumran community near the Dead SeaYet this war in heaven that was being played out on this planet earth, in prophetic history, was also part of the eschatology of the Prophet Elisha.


It was a commando force invasion by King Ben Hadad in Syria into the land of Israel that gives us prophetic insight of an expectant future invasion by President Assad in Damascus into Israel.  The prophetic servant of God called Elisha had a wonderful gift of extra-sensory perception.  The Syrian intelligence in the guarded cloisters of the war room of Ben Hadad for some reason was being transmitted directly to the King of Israel.  The Syrian monarch wanted to ferret out the Israeli mole that he felt was implanted in his inner intelligence force.  The intelligence officers of the king informed him that that this mole was the Prophet Elisha. 


2 Kings 6:11-12 – “Therefore the heart of the king of Syria was greatly troubled by this thing; and he called his servants and said to them, ‘Will you not show me which of us is for the king of Israel?’  And one of his servants said, ‘None, my lord, O king; but Elisha the prophet who is in Israel, tells the king of Israel the words that you speak in your bedroom.’”


The Ancient Site of Tell Dothan in Northern Israel


A military incursion was sent to the small fortress of Dothan where the prophet was residing. Elisha’s servant was panicking as he watched the Syrian forces surround the walled fortress city.  Strangely the prophet was calm and not affected. So Gehazi the servant inquired of his master, “Alas master, what shall we do?”  Elisha responded and then sent this prayer to the Lord of hosts:


2 Kings 6:16-17 – “So he answered, ‘Do not fear, for those who are with us are more than those who are with them.’ And Elisha prayed, and said, ‘Lord, I pray, open his eyes that he may see.’  Then the Lord opened the eyes of the young man, and he saw.  And behold, the mountain was full of horses and chariots of fire all around Elisha.”


This Syrian military force was blinded by the command of the prophet Elisha and thereby led away from Dothan to the capital city of Samaria. There they were wined and feasted and sent back to Damascus, not to return until a full military invasion was sent to lay siege to the capital city of Samaria.      


To the Hebrews, within the angelic host there were four angels for the four imperial nations of Babylon, Persia, Greece, and Rome that would affect the Jewish people.  It was Gabriel who struggled with the angelic Prince of Persia.  Each of the other imperial forces had their signet angel that watched over the affairs of that empire; Babylon (Bavel), Persia (Paras), Greece (Yavan), and Rome (Edom).  According to the sages of Judah, these angels were Picture 130first introduced to Jacob (Ya’akov) in a dream as he laid his head and slept on that rocky pillow at Bethel (Bet El).  There he saw a ladder with angels going up and down into heaven.   Who were the angels of the nations that would affect the future of Jerusalem (Yerushalayim) and the land of Israel (Eritz Yisra’el)?

In an insightful article on the death of Saddam Hussein, we read the following article titled, 2500 Years to Glory: From Nebuchadnezzar to Saddamby the Jewish Maggid Dov Bar-Leib


Maggid Dov Bar-Lieb – “Here according to Rashi, the earth from Yerushalayim (Jerusalem) to Bet El (Bethel) folded up underneath his (Jacob’s) head when he had his vision of angels ascending and descending on a ladder from Heaven. Here the text draws an inextricable link between Ya'akov (Jacob) receiving the blessing and the fate of Yerushalayim, as a matter of fact the fate of the entire stretch of Eretz Yisrael (Land of Israel) stretching from Yerushalayim to Bet El…The angels were none other than the angels of the four kingdoms, Bavel (Babylon), Paras (Persia), Yavan (Greece or Ionia), and Edom (Rome). The distance of their ascension and descent on that ladder was directly proportional to the lengths of their rule over the Holy City. What is most important to understand is that at the End of Days all four angels would return to contest over the Holy City. Four angels coveting One City. What a confusing mess!”

Yet in the Talmudic commentaries of the ancient sages of Judah, called the Chazal, only two angels would be left for the final competition for global domination, the final One World Order

By that time, the Prince of Persia, now Iran, who had destroyed or vanquished Babylon would be in direct confrontation with the Prince of Rome (the European Union).  Yet in history, the Prince of Rome did not destroy (vanquish) but absorbed or assimilated Greece into the Greco-Roman Empire.  As Dov Bar-Lieb further explains:


Maggid Dov Bar-Lieb – “Well to make matters more perplexing, the Talmud in Avodah Zarah specifically states that in reality only two of the angels will be around for the final contest. Apparently, the angel of Babylon and the angel of Yavan (Greece) will not be official participants in this final contest. Now we know that the angel of Greece was simply absorbed into the goals and purposes of the angel of Rome, for Chazal tell us that Greece is the Face of Rome. From this we see that Rome did not need to vanquish Greece in order to rise. It simply needed to absorb it in order to embellish its empire.


Previously Persia under Koresh (Cyrus) had vanquished Babylon, and Greece under Alexander had vanquished Persia under Daryavush (Darius). The Greeks also were defeated by the Romans in the Punic Wars when the Greeks allied with Hannibal and the Carthaginians. Yet, the Romans ultimately absorbed Greek culture, not the other way around. In short the angel of Greece was absorbed Picture 037into Rome and not simply vanquished.”

According to Maggid Dov Bar-Lieb, the coming “Great War” will be “between the Greco-Roman West and the Persians.” We have seen this war played out in covert wars, proxy wars, drugs and weapons smuggling throughout the East. 


In the past fourteen years since the Oslo Accord, we have seen a progressive demand of “Land for Peace” by Vatican Rome.  Yet every peace accord that Israel continued to negotiate with the Palestinian “Peace Partners” failed because they did not want just land, but Jerusalem and eventually all the land of Israel.  The seven years of failed negotiations ended on Rosh Hashanah (according to biblical calculations), Tishrei 1, 5760, on September 29, 2000.  That day, the Israeli Prime Minister candidate Ariel Sharon ascended the Temple Mount and prayed.  Immediately, the Palestinian al-Aqsa Jihad began and the seven year Oslo Accord effectively ended.


What is conspicuously absent as we observe at the geo-political events at the time of the end?  Where are the Babylonians or the angel of Babylon?  The angel of Babylon was absorbed also by the Greco-Roman West when the capital city of Iraq, the land of ancient Babylon, fell to the coalition forces of the United States of American on April 9, 2003.  In the war codenamed “Operation Iraqi Freedom,” the capital city of Baghdad of the resurrected empire of Babylon under Saddam Hussein fell the second time, almost as quickly as that impregnable city of Babylon of Nebuchadnezzar fell to Cyrus the Great, twenty five hundred years earlier.


On December 30, 2006 (9th Tevet 5767), the body of the former Sunni Ishtar Gate Babylon IraqPresident of Iraq, Saddam Hussein, hung lifeless at the end of a hangman’s noose in Baghdad, Iraq.  He had been condemned by the nominated jurists under the rule of the Shi’ite President of Iraq, Nouri al-Maliki of the Shi’ite Islamic Dawa Party.   


The Fabled Bab Ishtar Gate at BabylonClick to Open Baghdad Tour


All the dreams of the resurrection of the mighty empire of King Nebuchadnezzar were over.  The tank divisions of the Iraq army that were named after the great kings of ancient Babylonia, no longer existed. The tiles Hussein laid in Babylon that had his name imprinted on them, like Nebuchadnezzar of old, were now a part of the relics of history. The $500 million during the 1980s that Hussein spent to restored Ishtar Gate and rebuild the ancient city of Babylon were now to relegated as a museum relic.  Here was the dream of a man who once considered that he like Nebuchadnezzar of old could lay siege to Jerusalem and conquer the Jews like prey on a wild animal hunt on the sand flats of the Iraqi desert


Over sixty million bricks were laid in the walls of the restored Babylon with the inscription, “To King Nebuchadnezzar in the reign of Saddam Hussein” and “the era of Saddam Hussein, protector of Iraq, who rebuilt civilization and rebuilt Babylon.” The memory of Saddam Hussein will remain also on numismatic collectables for the Saddam Hussein after he was captured (left), and then shaved of his beardcoins he minted were printed with the motto: 2500 years of glory: From Nebuchadnezzar to Saddam Hussein.

Here was Nebuchadnezzar that was by divine decree changed into an animal for a certain period of time.  Here again was Nebuchadnezzar’s clone that lived in opulent palaces and used chemical weapons of mass destruction to silence his enemies and critics of his state, now reduced to living like an animal and captured in a hole like a night burrowing mammal.


It was on the 10th day of Tevet in the Jewish year of 3336 that King Nebuchadnezzar began his 2½ year siege of the city of Yerushalayim (Jerusalem)Two Thousand four hundred and thirty years later (2430 years) we find the Second Babylonian Empire lying in the dust as the Allied Coalition Forces conquered the capital city of Baghdad on April 9, 2003 (Nissan 7 5763).  The final end of the Second Babylon did not come until the 9th Tevet 5767, when on December 31, 2006 the “King” of Babylon met his end.  The Angel of Babylon was finally absorbed by the Western Greco-Roman forces of the resurrected Princes of Greece and Rome


The Battle between the He-Goat and the Ram – Digital Art by Ted Larson


Only the Prince of Persia is left to fall to the Prince of Rome, who first absorbed the Prince of Greece and now Prince of Babylon


Daniel 8:7, 17, 19-20 (parts) –“Then I saw him (he-goat) confronting the ram; he was moved with rage against him, attacked the ram, and broke his two horns.  There was no power in the ram to withstand him (he-goat), but he cast him down to the ground and trampled him; and there was no one that could deliver the ram from his handUnderstand son of man that the vision refers to the time of the end….for at the appointed time the end shall be. The ram which you saw, having the two horns – they are the kings of Media and Persia.  And the male goat is the kingdom of Greece.”


With the fall of Saddam Hussein, the “second” Nebuchadnezzar, are we now seeing the rise of the Mystery Babylon of Revelation?  The land of Iraq is in the process of becoming absorbed by the Prince of Rome (European Union and NATO) who has the “face” of Greece (United States). 


The He-Goat Tramples the Ram and Casts Him to the Ground – Digital Art by Ted Larson


With the ascent of the Democratic Party that now controls the House and the Senate of the United States, the drama of the future of American foreign policy in Iraq has escalated.  If the prophetic reality of Daniel eight is believed, will we see the toppling of the Shi’a Nation of Persia/Iran and possibly the Ba’ath Sunni Nation of Syria (Medes)?  Will this include direct confrontation with the two horned powers that support the nation of Iran, Russia, and China?  If so, then the United States (“Great horn of the he-Goat), along with NATO, the military arm of the European Union will absorb the power of Persia, Russia and China.  It is this event that those who are watching the escalation of geo-political tension in the Middle East are watching with concern and fear.  


According to the text of Daniel, the he-goat will “trample” the ram into the ground and break the “two great horns.” Then we will see an ominous and mysterious event, the power of the “great horn” of the he-goat will become “very great.”


Daniel 8:8 – “Therefore the male goat grew very great; but when he became strong, the large horn was broken and in the place of it four notable ones came up towards the four winds of heaven.”  

With the merging of the prophecies of Daniel with the Jewish prophet of Revelation, we must now consider that we are being introduced to the rise of the final Babylon, “Babylon the Great.”


The Woman in Scarlet Drunk with the Blood of the Saints – Digital Art by Ted Larson


Revelation 17:3-5 – “So he carried me away in the Spirit into the wilderness.  And I saw a woman sitting on a scarlet beast which was full of names of blasphemy, having seven heads and ten horns. The woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet, and adorned with gold and precious stones and pearls, having in her hand a golden cup full of abominations and the filthiness of her fornication.  And on her forehead a name was written:


‘Mystery, Babylon the Great, the Mother of Harlots

And of the Abominations of the Earth.’”


According to the prophet, this will be a power so great, so wicked that she made “all nations drink of the wine of the wrath of her fornication.”  This power will be the culmination, absorption, and the merging of all the four great powers of the ancient world. In the greatest of the Hegelian Dialectic Dichotomy, four became one; Babylon, Persia, Greece and Rome become “Babylon the Great.” 


Babylon is Fallen – Digital Art by Ted Larson


The Jewish prophet introduces us to the second angel of the “Three Angel’s Messages.”


Revelation 14:8 – “And another angel followed them, saying, “Babylon is fallen, is fallen, that great city because she made all nations drink of the wine of the wrath of her fornication.”


Before we move forward, let us remind ourselves that the land of Babylon and the ancient city of Baghdad was a participant in the rise of the final national State of Israel.  The rise of National Israel would then herald the return of the Messiah of Israel (Maschiach of Yisra’el) and the restoration of Ezekiel’s Temple in Jerusalem.  


It was in 2002 that the BibleSearchers introduced the Emeq HaMalekh (Valley of the Kings) first introduced in the writings of Vendyl Jones, that veteran “Righteous Gentile” so called by the Lubivitcher Hassidic Rabbinic Chief, Rabbi Menachem Mendel Schneerson.  Jones, for decades, had been searching for the Ark of the Covenant.  It was the discovery in 1992 when Rabbi Rachnael Steinberg and Rabbi Mendel Tropper found evidence of the lost writings called the “Emeq HaMelekh” that Vendyl Jones intensified his active search for the Lost Ark of the Covenent.


Within this lost manuscript were quoted several Jewish Mishnahs that were records of five temple guardians.  They documented a secret Hebrew commando mission to hide the vast treasures of Solomon from the First Temple in Jerusalem as the forces of King Nebuchadnezzar were threatening to come and destroy the city of Jerusalem.  According to this ancient Jewish record, these sacred treasures including the Twelve Engraved Tribal Gemstones were to be hidden until the time of the end when David son of David would return as the messiah of the Jews


This was documented in BibleSearchers under a series called the The Emeq Ha Melekh (Valley of the Kings) the Hebrew Account of Hiding the Ark, the Sanctuary and the Treasures of Solomon’s Temple. This included the research about the five guardians: Shimur the Levite (Shimur HaLevi), the Prophet Haggai (Chaggai), the Prophet Zechariah son of Iddo, Zedekiah (Zidkiyah) and Hezekiah (Hizkiyah) plus Ezra the scribe and Baruch son of Neriah, the scribe of Jeremiah.  Their writings were inscribed during their exile in the Great City of Babylon


This research also included the investigation and evaluation of the temple inventory that was hidden and later recorded in these Jewish Mishnahs.  These same temple treasures were later documented in other collaborating artifacts; the Temple Scroll, two large white Marble Tablets that were discovered on Mount Carmel, the Copper Scroll and the Book of Maccabees.  Rabbis Steinberg and Troppe also cited the Babylonian Talmud in Tractate Yoma 72 A, stating that the Wilderness Sanctuary (Mishkhan) and all its contents were hidden away but will one day be rediscovered. 


What is most exciting is that in the land of Iraq, in the walls of ancient Baghdat (Baghdad) is an inventory of treasures that includes a 7 branched, 49 lamped candlestick menorah that once was in the temple of Solomon.  This priceless Menorah was embedded with 182 precious gemstones and 36,400 jeweled stones that surrounded the priceless gemstones. 


The day of the fall of “Mystery Babylon” called “Babylon the Great” is still in the futureIts full revelation is yet to be.  Since the days of the last Jewish “false” messiah, Shabbati Zevi in 1666, the final Babylon the Great has been growing, merging and gaining the power of its full dominion throughout the world.  It would take the coalition of corrupted Jewish cabalists to form the final Mystery Babylon. This corrupt coalition, Shabbati Zevi, Nathan of Gaza, and Jacob Frank (Yacov Frankovich) formed an alliance with Adam Weishaupt, the founder of the Illuminate along with Moses Rothschild and his dynastic banking empire in Frankfurt, Germany that is imbedded into the entire western global economic order.


This alliance imbedded within the British and Scottish Masonic Rite a corruption of the purer Jewish Kabbalah, whose historical documentation reached back to the days of Menahem the Essene, the Vice-President of the Jewish Sanhedrin twenty years before the birth of Jesus the Nazarene.  Would his alliance someday bring this Satanic cabal to its full revelation in our modern age?


The French and the American Revolutions were part of the rise of this apocalyptic Babylon the Great as well as the First and the Second World Wars. Our interest in this article is the final confrontation between the Prince of the Western Greco-Roman global powers and the Prince of Persia that will include the absorption of the Red Internationale with PersiaAre we seeing the prophetic image of Daniel’s he-goat trampling the ram into the ground to include Iran fronting for the global powers of Russia and China that will be absorbed into the Golden International? At that time, will the path of the final universal global world confederation be complete?


In the eyes of Pope John Paul II, this would not be the final global confrontation.  The final conflict for world domination would come from the final apocalyptic Black Internationale, the Roman Catholic (Universal) Church.  The power, or the “force” of the Vatican, would be its military orders; Jesuits, the Opus Dei and the Knights of Malta. Will they emerge from the intelligence organizations, economic banking houses, the Supreme Court and legal jurists organizations, the international media organizations, and the geo-political brokers in all nations around the world? 

Will the Black Internationale absorb the global economic giant of the Golden Internationale?


Yet, as strange as this all seems, the evidence of the geopolitical rise of the Black Internationale made its recent debut.  It was at the recent Rome International Summit for Peace that carved out a peace agreement between Israel and Hezbollah in July, 2006, the Vatican rose to the geo-political stage of global domination.   


The Rome International Conference for Lebanon

On July 26, 2006 the Rome International Conference for Lebanon was convened in Rome Italy.  Here participants of the western global alliance met to write up a peace accord to stop the bloody battles between Israel and Hezbollah.  As we look at this conference, we will review the earlier BibleSearchers’ investigation of the Rome Peace Accord in the July, 2006 article titled, Zechariah 9, The Burden of the Lord in the Fertile Crescent. In this article under the The Rise of the Sea Beast of Revelation 13, we studied.


In early August 2006, the Israeli investigator, Barry Chamish penned a brief titled, The Vatican Victory in Lebanon.We read of how the western powers would use the concept of “Creative Destruction”, to instigate a war and bring about its conclusion for the ultimate goals of the western global agenda for domination of the Middle East.


Barry Chamish – “My heart breaks as Israel loses the war. But her crooked leaders are doing wonders for the New World Order. Now the Vatican gets in its UN secretary general Kofi Annan and US secretary of state Condoleezza Ricedibs and a new trade bloc is in formation. While the rockets fly, the US and Kuwait sign a free trade agreement. So also Dubai, Bahrain and Jordan. And did anyone notice that America no longer patrols Afghanistan? NATO has taken the reins. Not ten years ago, PM Shimon Peres was tired of the “Grapes of Wrath” mini-war and put an end to it with an attack on Kana which killed 100 and brought international troops to Lebanon.

The week before, the leaders of the NWO met in Rome under the kind but stern guidance of Condoleezza Rice. They decided to put in Lebanon International Troops...someday. A second Kana bombing, no matter who was responsible, gave Peres another chance to bring back his buddies, the French. Yes, it was decided that French troops would form the majority of the contingent…This whole awful war was designed to get those Vatican soldiers into Israel and given another few weeks of rocket attacks, barring a nuke on Teheran, Israelis will lift their arms and beg for any troops, anywhere, just to get a night's peace. Even in Jerusalem.”


Chamish continues his report referring to a secondary investigation by Jewish researcher Kati Cohen:


Investigator Kati Cohen - "Peres promised the pope East Jerusalem in May of 1992 and the Vatican wants to cash in now. But Sharon wasn't playing ball. In July of last year he actually banned diplomacy with the Vatican. So the Vatican tried working around him. In September they invited both Israeli chief rabbis to Rome to threaten the Jews if the holy sites of Jerusalem weren't handed over to them. In November, they hatched the Mount Zion plot, trading a Spanish church for the Last Supper room. President Katsav flew to the Vatican but Sharon still said no. "Finally they knew Sharon had to go.


Enter the Apostolic Nuncio Pietro Sambi. He plotted with Peres to finish Sharon and possibly supplied the poison Sharon drank in his final meeting with Peres on December 18 (2005). One thing is certain, 18 hours before, after 8 1/2 years in Jerusalem, Sambi flew out for a new assignment in Washington. "Once Olmert and Peres won the election, Peres flew to the Vatican taking with him a letter from (Prime Minister Ehud) Olmert to the Pope (Benedict XVI). No one will say what was in the letter, but you can be sure he promised the pope 'his land' and the war drastic enough to give it to him."


On July 25, 2006, the Catholic News Service published an article titled, On Eve of Peace Summit, Benedict says Prayers for Mideast might be Working.”

Pope Benedict XVI


Catholic News Service – “On the eve of the Rome international summit for peace in the Middle East, Pope Benedict XVI said it appeared that perhaps prayers for peace were starting to work. “It seems to me that today something is beginning to move, which shows that prayers are not useless," the pope told reporters in Northern Italy July 25 as he returned to the chalet in Les Combes where he has been vacationing…."I hope they find stable and lasting solutions" to the violence that has ignited in Lebanon, Israel and the Palestinian territories.


While sending official observers to the Rome summit for peace in the Middle East, the Vatican also planned to continue working behind the scenes in pushing for a peaceful solution to ongoing violence in the region, said Cardinal Angelo Sodano, Vatican secretary of state. The Vatican announced late July 25 that it had been invited to participate in the July 26 summit as an official observer. Archbishop Giovanni Lajolo, the Vatican's foreign minister, and two officials from his staff were to represent the Vatican at the meeting…


"The Holy See tries to be 'super partes' (above all parties); it has a universal  mission to unite all of humanity," the Cardinal (Sodano) said…His remarks echoed Pope Benedict's July 21 comments that the Vatican tends to leave diplomatic bargaining to other nations "because we do not get involved in politics even if we do everything for peace."  However, the Vatican supports everything that can facilitate and lead to peace, the pope had said. Because modern civilization calls for dialogue, not war, to resolve disputes, every day the Vatican has been contacting foreign diplomats in an effort to foster a peaceful resolution, Cardinal Sodano said.”

As BibleSearchers Reflections summarized this Peace Summit in Rome on August 2006, we read:


BibleSearchers Reflections – “Several observations are important.  While the Vatican was officially at the Rome Summit as an observer, it is important to see that their behind the scenes diplomacy makes them more of the “glue” of the summit rather than an observer.  The most sobering statement was "The Holy See tries to be 'super partes' (above all parties); it has a universal mission to unite all of humanity."


Are we seeing the Vatican’s real intent Do they consider that they are the Super-power? Does the Vatican truly see itself as Pope John Paul II envisioned in 1978 that it will become the Black Internationaleand the ultimate victor of world domination?  Does this observation suggest that their vision for peace comes with the proviso that they are in control and not the God of Israel?


The War on Lebanon and the Global Battle for Oil –

Opening of the Baku-Tbilisi-Ceyhan Oil Terminal in Turkey


Baku-Tbilisi-Ceyhan Oil Terminal


As the citizens in Israel were asking why, thousands of Katyusha rockets were raining down over their heads from the Iranian supported Hezbollah forces in LebanonAs the Lebanese citizens were fleeing from overwhelming aerial bombing by the Israeli Defense Force, they also were begging why.  Many, in both the nations of Lebanon and Israel, still continue to believe that the War in Lebanon was a local mini-conflict.  Most people suspect that this war will unfold in a greater war between Israel and the Islamic nations in the near future.  They failed to consider that this war was a strategic military engagement that was on the drawing board of the United States and allied forces for several months


It was the 17th of Tammuz, in the summer of 586 BCE, the day of infamy in Hebrew history, when the Babylonian military forces of Nebuchadnezzar and the Roman military forces of Titus breeched the northern walls of Jerusalem.  These events heralded the destruction of the city of David days later.  


It was the 17th of Tammuz, July 13, 2006, when the Hezbollah commando forces breeched the northern borders of Israel and in the raid abducted two Israeli Defense Force soldiers. Immediately, the government of Israel launched a war of retaliation. 


As all the world was watching with interest or dismay, Israel was pounding southern Lebanon in one of the most intense aerial bombing attacks in decades.  At the same time Hezbollah and Hamas were raining Katyusha and Kassam rockets into Galilee in northern Israel.


Pipe laying and backfilling in progress in Azerbaijan.On that same day, July 13, 2006, to the north of Israel and Lebanon, a western globalist economic and energy coup was taking place as the United States and its allies opened the Baku-Tbilisi-Ceyhan (BTC) Oil Terminal near to the coastal city of Adana, Turkey.  Was this a coincidence?


The Pipe Laying and Backfiling in Azerbaijan for the  Baku-Tbilisi-Ceyhan (BTC) pipeline


This 1,100 mile pipeline passed through the countries of Georgia, Azerbaijan, Kazakhstan, and Turkey.  One million barrels of oil per day are destined for the western world, flowing from the Sangachal oil terminal twenty five miles south of the Azeri capital of Baku on the Caspian SeaThis oil will flow all the way towards the southwest to the Turkish Mediterranean port of CeyhanOil that previously flowed from the land locked Caspian Sea through the pipelines of the Nation of Russia will now be diverted to the western controlled BTC pipeline.  This oil will no longer be under the threat of a Russian stranglehold against the western economies.


The Oil and Gas East-West Energy Corridor from the Caspian to the Black and the Mediterranean Sea


The world’s largest private construction project, the $3.2 billion BTC pipeline will be the first link to bring the third largest oil and gas reserves to the western markets.  Yet this British Petroleum consortium is only a fraction of a total of $20 billion of energy projects that are on the planning boards for the future.  A coup for the western Golden Internationale globalists, this pipeline will also open huge revenues to the former provinces of Russia and the Nation of Turkey with its transit fees and royalties.


The war for global domination over the energy reserves of the Middle East and the Caspian regions of Central Asia is seen by many as an economic and political set back to the Red Internationale of Russia, China, and Iran.  It is also seen as a geo-political victory for the Golden Internationale and the economic welfare of the international oil community; Europe, the United States, and Israel. 


While the Israeli-Lebanese War diverted the attention of the world, the strategic economic coup was of greater magnitude than a military battle victory between the eastern communist giant, Russia, and the western economic globalists of the European Union and the United States.


The opening of the Caspian-Mediterranean Pipeline and the Israeli siege of the coastline of Lebanon during the Israeli – Hezbollah War were part of a larger military strategy awaiting the arrival of the largest military and navel presence of Europe in the Middle East since World War II.  At the same time, the largest military naval presence of the United States in the Persian Gulf was preparing to head from the western coast of the United States towards Iran and the Arabian Sea at the end of October 2006. Is it also a coincidence that these two events occurred on the same day, July 13, 2006?  Is it a coincidence that these two events occurred on the day that was foreshadowed by the mini-dramas of the prophets of Israel about the impending devastation of Israel by the modern day forces of Babylon and Rome (Edom)?


Eight pumping stations are required to boost oil pressure along the route.As we watched the Secretary of State of the United States, Condoleezza Rice was junketing back and forth through the Middle East, she appeared to be directing the outcome of the Israeli-Lebanese War of 2006.  We witnessed a carefully orchestrated and coordinated military “road map” that the United States and Europe have been heralding in the Middle East for the past five years.  This “road map” first included the military occupation of the nation of Afghanistan (2001), then the occupation of the nation of Iraq (2003).  Finally the entire Eastern Mediterranean Sea was put under the military control of NATO naval presence.  Is it any wonder that many are beginning to perceive that the influence of the Vatican’s Black Internationale is gaining control of the regions surrounding Israel, Lebanon, and the Eastern Mediterranean Seaboard? 


Eight pumping stations are required to boost oil pressure along the route Baku-Tbilisi-Ceyhan (BTC) pipeline


To achieve the control of the entire Mediterranean coastline suggests that the nation of Syria and her puppet vassal in Lebanon must soon come under the subjection of the United States and Europe. With the control of the Eastern Mediterranean coastline, the western economic globalists will be able to expand the oil terminal outlet in Ceyhan, Turkey down the coastline to Israel and secure Israel’s position into the global energy community. Is it any wonder that it was announced in the Jerusalem Post on January 23, 2006, that the National Security Council was completing a “position paper that will include guidelines and a strategy for turning Israel into a full-fledged member of NATO?” It was former Spanish Prime Minister Jos Mar a-Aznar who stated that “Israel needs to join NATO as soon as possible…If Israel became a member of NATO, ‘the perception in Iran would change, knowing that it’s not only Israel (they are dealing with), but all of NATO.” 


Imbedded in this “road map” is the necessity of building strategic oil and gas pipelines for the western oil giants that will be outside the hands of Putin’s orchestrated nationalization of the oil and mineral resources in Russia. These resources that were once under the control of the western oil industry and the Jewish oligarchs have now been, one by one, taken over in Putins march to drive out any Jewish or western economic or political influence. 


What is little understood is the final plan for Israel to obtain territorial control over the entire East Mediterranean coastline.  With the opening of the Caspian-Mediterranean Pipeline, Russia and China will be locked out of gaining control of the energy oil resources in the Caucasus region.  The communist Red Internationale’s bid to create a monopoly over world energy resources will be thwarted. The Nation of Israel, possibly as a NATO member and now an official member of the western economic globalists, will now be in the position to expand her influence outward from her national borders.  Are we are seeing the finger of the Lord of hosts allowing the global powers to expand the borders of Israel and achieve the final will of the Almighty One of Israel in the preparation for the coming of the messiah?


The Guardians of Rome - The European and NATO Troop and Naval Movements in Lebanon and the Eastern Mediterranean Sea  


At the conclusion of the Rome Peace Conference, a new configuration of “peacekeepers” entered the northern borders of Israel.  Using the U.N. Security Council Resolution 1701 as their launching pad, within weeks, key national military land and naval forces from the western occidental Greco-Roman world settled in Lebanon with specific assigned missions and military assignments.


Even more interesting, these military forces from the former provinces of the ancient Roman Empire are ten in number.  It reminds us of the ten toes of the Great Statue of Nebuchadnezzar with ten toes that were made of iron and clay and the ten horns and crowns on the Sea Beast of Revelation.


Daniel 2:41-43 – “Whereas you saw the feet and toes, partly of potter’s clay and partly of iron, the kingdom shall be divided; yet the strength of the iron shall be in it, just as you saw the iron mixed with ceramic clay.  And as the toes of the feet were partly of iron and partly of clay, so the kingdom shall be partly strong and partly fragile.  As you saw iron mixed with ceramic clay, they will mingle with the seed of men; but they will not adhere to one another, just as iron does not mix with clay.”


Revelation 13:1- 2 – “Then, I stood on the sand of the sea.  And I saw a beast rising up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and on his horns ten crowns, and on his heads a blasphemous name. Now the beast which I saw was like a leopard, his feet were like the feet of a bear, and his mouth like the mouth of a lion. The dragon gave him his power, his throne, and great authority.”


As the NATO peacekeepers began to settle into their military assignments, those in observation wondered about the precision and the careful delegation of responsibilities which they were assigned. If there was any consideration that the onset of the War between Israel and Hezbollah was a spontaneous event in history, we may want to reconsider our original suppositions.


Military strategy does not just happen.  It is the process of months and years of careful planning and strategic implementation.  As we will later see, there was a reason and plenty of motives for such a war to occur.  The most conspicuous reason was that the borders of northern Israel would now be “guarded” by the nations most loyal over the centuries to the long term strategic vision of the Vatican.


The Israeli based intelligence report, DEBKAfiles was one of the first to report on September 4, 2006 in the article titled Lebanese Security” Is the Pretext for the Naval Babel around Lebanon’s Shores.” In the following report, we will begin to see the immense naval buildup on the Eastern Mediterranean coast:


DEBKAfiles – “The extraordinary buildup of European naval and military strength in and around Lebanon’s shores is way out of proportion for the task the European contingents of expanded UNIFIL have undertaken: to create a buffer between Israel and Hizballah. Close investigation by DEBKAfile’s military and intelligence sources discloses that “Lebanese security” and peacemaking is not the object of the exercise. It is linked to the general anticipation of a military clash between the United States and Israel, on one side, and Iran and possibly Syria on the other, some time from now until November.


This expectation has brought together the greatest sea and air armada Europe has ever assembled at any point on earth since World War II: two carriers with 75 fighter-bombers, spy planes and helicopters on their decks; 15 warships of various types – 7 French, 5 Italian, 2-3 Green, 3-5 German, and five American; thousands of MarinesFrench, Italian and German, as well as 1,800 US Marines.  It is improbably billed as support for a mere 7,000 European soldiers who are deployed in Lebanon to prevent the dwindling Israeli force of 4-5,000 soldiers and some 15-16,000 Hizballah militiamen from coming to blows as well as for humanitarian odd jobs.


A Western military expert remarked to DEBKAfile that the European naval forces cruising off Lebanese shores are roughly ten times as much as the UNIFIL contingents require as cover, especially when UNIFIL’s duties are strictly non-combat. After all, none of the UN contingents will be engaged in disarming Hizballah or blocking the flow of weapons incoming from Syria and Iran.  So, if not for Lebanon, what is this fine array of naval power really there for?


First, according to our military sources, the European participants feel the need of a strong naval presence in the eastern Mediterranean to prevent a possible Iranian-US-Israeli war igniting an Iranian long-range Shahab missile attack on Europe; second, as a deterrent to dissuade Syria and Hizballah from opening a second front against American and Israel from their Image:Gaule96.jpgeastern Mediterranean coasts. Numbers alone do not do justice to the immense operational capabilities and firepower amassed opposite Lebanon. Take first the three fleet flagships.


The Charles de Gaulle French Nuclear Aircraft Carrier


From France’s nuclear-powered 38,000-ton Charles De Gaulle carrier (see insignia), 40 Rafale M fighter craft whose range is 3,340 km can take off at intervals of 30 seconds. The ship also carries three E-2C Hawkeye surveillance craft. The combat control center of the French carrier can handle 2,000 simultaneous targets. The carrier leads a task force of 7 warships carrying 2,800 French Marines.  Charles De Gaulle’s also a floating logistics center operating water desalination plants for 15,000 men and enough food to feed an army for 90 days.

The USS Mount Whitney


The USS Mount Whitney has the most sophisticated command and control suite in the world. Like the French Charles De Gaulle, it exercises command over a task force of 1,800 sailors, Marines, Air force medical and other personnel serving aboard the USS Barry, the USS Trenton , HSV Swift and USNS KanawhaAvailable to the fleet commander, US Vice Admiral J. “Boomer” Stufflebeem, formally titled commander of Joint Task Force Lebanon, is the uniquely advanced C41 command and intelligence system through which he can flash intelligence data to every American commander at any point between the eastern Mediterranean and the Persian Gulf and Iran. USS Mount Whitney communications are described as unsurpassed for the secure transmission of data from any point to any other point in the world through HF, UHF,VHF, SHF and EHF.


Image:MM Garibaldi.jpgThe third carrier joining the other two is the Italian aircraft-helicopter carrier Garibaldi , which has launch pads for vertical takeoff by 16 AV-8B Harrier fighter-bombers or 18 Sikorsky SH-3D Seak King sea-choppers (or Italian Agusta Bell AB212 helicopters), designed to attack submarines and missile ships.  Military experts estimate that the Garibaldi currently carries 10 fighter planes and 6 helicopters.


The Italian Carrier Garibaldi


 The new European naval concentration tops up the forces which permanently crowd the eastern Mediterranean: the Italian-based American Sixth Fleet, some 15 small Israeli missile ships and half a dozen submarines and the NATO fleet of Canadian, British, Dutch, German, Spanish, Greek and Turkish warships. They are on patrol against al Qaeda (which is estimated to deploy 45 small freighters in the Mediterranean and Indian Ocean). The British have permanent air and sea bases in CyprusThis vast force’s main weakness, according to DEBKAfile’s military sources, is that it lacks a single unified command. A sudden flare-up in Lebanon, Syria or Iran could throw the entire force into confusion.


On paper, it has three commanders:

1.      French General Alain Pellegrini is the commander of the expanded UNIFIL ground, naval and air force in Lebanon. In February 2007, he hands over to an Italian general who leads the largest of the European contingents of 3,000 men. It is hard to see France agreeing to place its prestigious Charles De Gaulle flagship under non-French command.

2.      The American forces opposite Lebanese shores are under direct US command. Since the October 1993 debacle of an American peace force under the UN flag in Somalia, Washington has never again placed its military under UN command. (There is no American contingent in the UNIFIL ground force either.)

3.      In other words, USS Mount Whitney, while serving the European fleets as their operational and intelligence nerve center will stay under the sole command of Vice Admiral Stufflebeem in all possible contingencies.

4.      Similarly, the NATO fleet will remain under NATO command, and Israel’s air and naval units will take their orders from Israeli Navy Headquarters in Haifa and the General Staff in Tel Aviv.


The naval Babel piling up in the eastern Mediterranean may therefore find itself at cross purposes when action is needed in an armed conflict. Iran, Syria and Hizballah could be counting on this weakness as a tactical asset in their favor.”


BibleSearchers Reflections had earlier reported on this impending conflict in the region of ancient Babel in the article on November 1, 2006 titled, “Is the ‘War of Civilizations’ about to erupt in the Persian Gulf?” In this article we analyzed the buildup of a massive naval armada by the United States Navy in the Persian Gulf and the Arabian Sea military front in the month prior to the November elections in America.  We will now look at the equally massive naval armada that has been formed by the allied nations of NATO that are in armed preparation off the Eastern Mediterranean Sea in support of the imbedded armed forces in the country of Lebanon.


While the operational build-up in the Persian Theatre of war was partially completed by November 1, 2006, the intelligence media was filled with expectation that a military confrontation between the United States and the countries of Iran and Syria was imminent.  Suddenly the brakes appeared to screech to a halt as the American November elections gave the majority rule of the United States House of Representatives and the Senate to the Democratic Party.  For a moment in time, this appeared to derail this confrontation.  On the heels of the election revolt and the passivism that the Democratic elected representatives have displayed does not bode well for the increasingly activist president.  


It was Contributing Editor, Mahdi Darius Nazemroaya that posted an article on Global Security titled, “The March to War: Naval build-up in the Persian Gulf and the Eastern Mediterraneandepicting the NATO allied presence that was sent to LebanonThe European nations included in this naval buildup were:


  1. The Nation of Italy became the leader of the “peace-keeping force” in Lebanon.  The Italian Army sent their Venice-based marine infantry called the Lagunari.  They are a select corp of the Army especially trained for sabotage and sea attack landings.  With their roots born in 1200 in Venice, the Reggimento Lagunari “Serenissima” Italian Army were trained to defend the coastline (“Laguna”) around Venice with specialty amphibious training.


The Italian Navy also sent into Lebanon their “San Marco Regiment.”  As the Italian marine unit, they are trained to land abroad, outside the national boundaries of Italy.  They take their name from St. Mark, the patron saint of Venice.  The symbol of the lion of St. Mark is also the symbol of the NATO Command LANDSOUTH that is based in Vicenza, in the territorial jurisdiction of Venice.  While the Lagunari Regiment was put into service in Bosnia and Kosovo, the Regiment San Marco served in Kosovo but only in the theater reserves and remained afloat on ships.


  1. The Nation of France provided about 2,000 troops with their specialized mission to provide military command operations on the ground for land based military operations while the Italian and Germany naval battleships headed the naval command in the Eastern Mediterranean theatre of war.  According to reports, the French tanks and armored division comprise “the most powerful Armor ever deployed by a United Nations peacekeeping force” in history.


  1. The Nation of Spain provided the third largest NATO presence in Lebanon after Italy and France.  Their troops were deployed to the region around the city of Tyre with two naval battle ships.  A part of the Spanish contingent was assigned along the Israeli border in Southern Lebanon and near the Sheba Farms near the Syrian border and the Golan Heights.   


  1. The Nation of Germany’s naval presence along the Lebanese border arrived with battle frigates and fast patrol boats to take command of patrolling the coastline of Lebanon after the Israeli siege on Lebanon was turned over to the UN-NATO forces.  As reported, “The naval mission, the first German deployment to the Middle East since the end of the Second World War, was backed by 442 lawmakers, with 152 against and five abstentions. As many as 2,400 German [naval] personnel will now be deployed to the region, backed by a one- year mandate expiring August 31, 2007. The mission brings the number of German soldiers serving overseas to above 10,000 for the first time in postwar [meaning post-World War II] history.


  1. The Nation of Denmark, for such a small country, they early provided naval presence for the NATO armada that has gathered along the Syrian and Lebanese coastline.  They came with the naval corvette, the Peter Tordenskiold and two Danish missile cruisers, the Raven and the Hawk.  This support was given by a coalition government formed by the Danish Conservative People’s Party and the Liberal Party of Denmark, led by Danish Prime Minister Anders Fogh Ramussen


The country of Denmark has long been a steady supporter of the American coalition forces in the Middle EastShe provided troops to both the allied invasions into Afghanistan and later the nation of Iraq. Besides supporting the NATO command with the Lebanese peacekeeping forces, the Danish troops were also sent with 2000 troops along with Romania and Poland to the new NATO command that took over the pacification of Afghanistan in the fall of 2006.


  1. The Nation of Greece became a part of the NATO naval presence as ten Greek warships arrived with naval helicopters and diving units with the command to “use force if needed.”  These Greek naval ships will make their home at the southern port of Larnaca on the southern coastline of Cyprus facing the Lebanese shores until the port at Beirut has been taken over by the military command of NATO as safe for naval ships to harbor.


  1. The Nation of Netherlands sent to the NATO armada one frigate and logistical supply ship with the supporting Dutch naval staff of 150


  1. The Nation of Belgium pledged to send 400 troops into Southern Lebanon


  1. The Nation of Bulgaria who had been an allied supporter in Iraq until 2005/6 with current military personnel in Afghanistan pledged to send naval and ground forces into Lebanon


  1. The Nation of Great Britain who has been the biggest supporter of the American coalition force in Iraq with its military presence predominately in the Shi’ite regions of southern Iraq around Basrah, has in turn sent a small contingent of troops in to Southern Lebanon.


Additional troops may possibly be sent by the Nation of Turkey, in spite of massive Islamic opposition pledged to send troops into Lebanon. Instead, Turkey may supply security forces to the NATO command in Afghanistan.  Also the United Arab Emirates, the Arab sheikdom on the Persian Gulf, had troop presence to clear Israeli mines and booby-traps along the Litani River.  This mandate in turn issued contracts to a British private security firm, ArmorGroup International that is providing security for the U.S. military in Iraq, Afghanistan, and the U.S. Navy ports at Bahrain.  This firm also provides security for gas and oil conglomerates in Jordan, Kuwait, Nigeria, Saudi Arabia, and Russia plus the former Soviet Union provinces of Kazakhstan and Azarbaijan


BibleSearchers first noted this military naval buildup in the waters of the Eastern Mediterranean in the fall of 2001.  In the aftermath of 9/11, NATO’s “Operation Active Endeavor” was implemented with the military troops and naval ships which were sent by the European countries of Italy, Spain, France, Turkey, Germany, and the Netherlands.  This operation was fully integrated into the U.S. led “War on Terrorism” and put under the Commander of “NATO Allied Naval Forces, Southern Europe” whose offices are based in Naples, Italy.


As BibleSearchers has continued to report, the war against Syria and Iran are a part of parallel prophesies. This includes the confrontation between the Golden Internationale of the western globalist nations in the European Union (Biblical Edom or the resurrected Greco-Roman Empire) with the United States that are seeking world domination.  They will be opposed to the Red Internationale of the eastern globalist nations of Russia and China.  Such a war would truly confront the possibility of the “War of Civilizations” between the East and the West as prophesied in Daniel 8.   


The Western Globalists Map of the “New Middle East”


Condoleezza Rice - "As we deal with the current circumstances,

Need always to be cognizant of and looking to what kind of Middle East

We are trying to build. It is time for a new Middle East."


It was in Tel Aviv, on June 2006, the U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice introduced and was credited for coining to the international press the new term, “New Middle East.”  Representing a shift in America’s foreign policy, Rice and Israeli Prime Minister Olmert later announced to the international media during the height of the Israeli – Hezbollah War that a new project for a “New Middle East” was being launched from Lebanon


Was it a coincidence that on July 13, 2006, the very day that the commando forces of Hezbollah captured two Israeli troops as ransom for a large exchange of prisoners, the Baku-Tbilisi-Ceyhan (BTC) Oil Terminal was inaugurated on the Turkey coast just north of Lebanon?  Can we now begin to conceptualize a “New Middle East”, as a Smoke drifts across Beirut, Lebanonfocal point for a new geo-political realignment in the Middle East?

It was on November 16, 2006 that Contributing Editor of Global Security Mahdi Darius Nazemroaya posted an article on Global Security titled, The Plans for Redrawing the Map for the New Middle East.”  Here he outlined the “military roadmap” that the western global powers were using as their end point for the implementation of a new land for the Muslims and Jews in ancients lands of Babylon, Persia, and Israel.  According to these powers, the pathway of aligning the nations, extending from Lebanon, Palestine to Syria, Iraq, Iran, the entire Persian Gulf, and Afghanistan, was on the drawing board to be accomplished by “constructive chaos.”


Out of the years of helping to create chaos and violence, the arc of instability that resulted has now become the fulcrum from which it is expected that all national parties will be seeking a new stability with a goal for safety and security.  It has been suggested that in the minds of the western globalist, the United States with Britain and the NATO alliance of the European Union will be able to redraw the regions in order to bring stability to the new redrawn regional countries that will be pro-western in their orientation.


The U.S. State Department report dated on July 21, 2006 released the following report titled, Special Briefing on Travel to the Middle East by Secretary Condoleezza Rice, we find in the following observation of the Secretary of State concerning the extensive bombing of Lebanon:


Condoleezza Rice – “What we’re seeing here, in a sense, is the growing—the ‘birth pangs’—of a ‘New Middle East’ and whatever we do we have to be certain that we’re pushing forward to the New Middle East [and] not going back to the old one.”


Since when has the Secretary of State Rice started using “prophetic” terms used by the God of Israel concerning the latter days?  We know that Condoleezza Rice’s actions are permitted by the Sovereign God of Israel according to His divine will.  What she may not perceive is that the nation building actions by the western global powers are part of God who is also rearranging this land into a “New Middle East.” This divine map, in which the prophets of old wrote, show the borders of Israel continuing to expand.


Out of chaos of the devastated region of Galilee in Northern Israel as thousands of Katyusha rockets raining down upon the towns and villages, the people of Israel have become aware that the borders of the Nation of Israel are being arranged by a larger global order.  Out of the widespread destruction of the national infrastructure, homes and buildings by the blanketed bombing of the Israeli Defense Air Force, the citizens of Lebanon have also come to a new reality that the globalist’s dream for this ancient land would forever change the nature of their country  


The New “Creative Destruction” in the Middle East


Israelis look at a damaged houseIt was on August 22, 2006, in the Asian Times that Mark LeVine, professor of history at the University of California-Irvine wrote an article, The New Creative Destruction.”  He posted the thesis that the “creative destruction” in Lebanon was in progress by both the United States and Israel at the same time with Hezbollah and Syria-Iran.  According to Michael Ledeen, the neo-conservative philosopher and advisor to George Bush, he stated that this is an “awesome revolutionary force" for whom creative destruction was "our middle name".

Israelis look at a damaged house in the northern Israeli town of Carmiel that was hit by a Katyusha rocket fired by Hezbollah guerrillas from neighboring Lebanon


If there was a consideration that creative destruction is owned by the Bush Administration, Mark LeVine suggested that we must reconsider.  If there was a master chess player in this drama, it was Hezbollah leader Hassan Nasrallah,that suckered Israel into a war for which it had perfectly planned each component: the bait - the kidnapping of two soldiers; the military tactics - tunnels, missile barrages and advanced anti-tank weapons; and the post-fighting reconstruction - a large-scale effort that only Hezbollah, and  not the Lebanese government, is capable of undertaking.”

According to LeVine, it was the Austrian economist Rudolph Schumpeter fifty years ago that described the process of the creativeness of capitalism that first destroyed the indigenous social systems and then reaped the profits of the development of the economic new order that the new social systems would create

It was Tom Peters, who wrote the book, “Re-imagine, Business Excellence in a Disruptive Age” and mused as he watched the Soviet Union disintegrate in the 1980s in the new technological revolution.  They found that it was not only possible to manage the chaos but “thrive on” and reap great profits from it.  This concept appears to the neo-conservatives in the Bush administration as the way to use “creative destruction” as they create a new world order and the new nations that will support this new age


The United States appeared to be foundering in Iraq, after the “creative destruction” it created in 2003.  With a massive “shock and awe” aerial assault, the disintegration of Iraq was followed by a massive land invasion.  We began to see a polarization not only in Iraqi society but also in the larger American society.  The U.S. military immediately backed away into protective confines and watched the Iraqi society flounder in immobility. 


Shi’a and Sunni insurgents paralyzed a land with fear and intimidation.  Suicide bombings and random surprise mortar attacks became the international evening meal given by the international press.  Was America collapsing in what appeared to be a foundering dinosaur?  Was there a higher power or  coalition that was feeding or financing both the Iraqi and American societies enough chaos so that both social cultures would eventually accept the emerging North American Union and the New Middle East?  Did both societies understand that it would mean the loss of their own national sovereign identity?

Yet in Lebanon, the Hezbollah immediately began providing a new equation of “creative reconstruction.”  Before they could come under the wrath of international condemnation, the world community saw the “Hezbollah fighters exchange their Kalashnikovs for hard hats and bulldozers.  They began to clear away the rubble, handing out money, food and furniture to the homeless, and rebuilding the roads and buildings in the war they precipitated destroyed.  All this came with an unlimited supply of funds from Israel's and America's main enemy and ultimate target of the war, Iran.” 


For the Hezbollah, “each bombed-out building and lifeless baby created another opportunity for Hezbollah to show its patriotism, charity and efficiency.” The element of fear also brought out a new radicalization, the women and the grandmothers became “freedom fighters” while the children were used as hostages and human barrier shields to protect the Hezbollah warriors. 


Re-Mapping the “New Middle East


Since the middle of 2006, a map of the “New Middle East” has been circulating around the government’s strategic war rooms of NATO and military strategy offices of the United States.  This map was disclosed in an article by global research called, Plans for Redrawing the Middle East: the Project for a “New Middle East.”  It was reported to have been redrawn over the decades since the era of President Woodrow Wilson’s League of Nations.  Its modernized facelift was attributed as the brainchild of Lieutenant-Colonel Ralph Peters of the U.S. Army retired from his last post in the Office of the Deputy Chief of Staff for Intelligence.  It was presented in his book, Never Quit the Fight that was released to the public on July 10, 2006 and in the U.S. Military Armed Forces Journal’s article, Blood Borders: How a Better Middle East would Look.”    


Besides fitting the overall strategy of the Golden Internationale’s mission for global domination of energy resources, it purports to “fundamentally solve the problems of the contemporary Middle East.  Many analysts are suggesting that this map is the long term goal by Washington’s strategy planners for the new Middle East.  As Ralph Peters introduces his article:


Ralph Peters“International borders are never completely just. But the degree of injustice they inflict upon those whom frontiers force together or separate makes an enormous difference — often the difference between freedom and oppression, tolerance and atrocity, the rule of law and terrorism, or even peace and war.


To achieve this new world order, conflict is needed in order to reverse what the western globalists feel is a “cultural stagnation” in the Middle East.  According to Peters, this period of change will be painful in what many claim will be necessary “draconian” measures.  This fact is interesting in that the U.S. Secretary of State, Condoleezza Rice, also admits that the destruction in Lebanon and Galilee in Israel are necessary pains or ‘birth pangs” in order to recreate the Middle East into the global community that the Golden Internationale, at Washington, London and even Tel Aviv, envision for the future. 


Why is Condoleezza Rice becoming so apocalyptic in her world view? Is the finger of the Lord using Rice and Bush as His agents to prepare this planet for the coming of the messiah? Are we seeing the beginning stages of the international coalition that will be led to the plains of Megiddo (Armageddon)? Will they there be prepared to await the arrival of the Messiah of Israel?


Are we not seeing the Almighty One of Israel, who guides the affairs of the nations? Are we not seeing the “mighty act” of the Lord of hosts who appoints the kings and presidents in their own dominions to do His divine will?  Are not the “birth pangs” of nation destruction true?  Did not the prophets of Israel of old foretell of these events twenty-five hundred years ago? 


Isaiah 13:1-9 (parts) - The Judgments upon Babylon – “’Lift up a banner on the high mountain, raise your voice to them…I have commanded my sanctified ones. I have also called My mighty ones for My anger – those who rejoice in My exaltation.  The noise of a multitude in the mountains, like that of many people! A tumultuous noise of the kingdoms of nations gathered together! The Lord of hosts musters the army for battle. They come from a far country, from the end of heaven – for the Lord and His weapons of indignation, to destroy the whole land. Wail for the day of the Lord is at hand! It will come as destruction of the Almighty.  Therefore all hands will be limp, every man’s heart will melt, and they will be afraid


Pangs and sorrows will take hold of them; they will be in pain as a woman in childbirth…Behold the day of the Lord comes, cruel, and both wrath and fierce anger, to lay the land desolate…I will punish the world for its evil and the wicked for their iniquity; I will halt the arrogance of the proud and lay low the haughtiness of the terrible I will make a mortal more rare than fine gold…Therefore I will shake the heavens, and the earth will move out of her place, in the wrath of the Lord of hosts in the day of his fierce anger.”


These “birth pains” will extend right up to the “Day of the Lord.” This will be the “Day” when the remnant of the Lord, both Jews and Gentiles, will fulfill their appointed duty of bringing salvation not through “wrath” but through our Master Yahshua (Jesus).  It was His inter-dimensional mission of rescue and salvation that restored the “Pole of Grace in the Sefirot of God’s Creations with the promise to redeem all men to His Father in heaven. 


I Thessalonians 5:3-11 (parts) – “But concerning the times and seasons…for you yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so comes as a thief in the night. For when they say, “Peace and safety!” then sudden destruction comes upon them, as labor pains upon a pregnant woman. And they shall not escape.


But you, brethren, are not in darkness, so that this Day should overtake you as a thief.  You are all sons of light and sons of the day.  We are not of the night nor of darkness.  Therefore let us not sleep, as others do, but let us watch and be sober…For God did not appoint us to wrath, but to obtain salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ, who died for us, that whether we wake or sleep, we should live together with Him. There comfort each other and edify one another just as you also are doing.”


Lest we forget though, not all “labor pains of a woman in travail” were meant for a nation on the eves of destruction. There was one exception in the divine plan of salvation where a nation would be born for redemption and salvation.  The veteran political scientist and prophet of Judah, the Prophet Isaiah wrote in the years between 701- 681 BCE the following prophecy:


Isaiah 66:7- 11 (parts) – “Before she was in labor, she gave birth; Before her pain came, She delivered a male Child.  Who has heard such a thing?  Who has seen such things? Shall the earth be made to give birth in one day? Or shall a nation be born at once?


For as soon as Zion was in labor, she gave birth to her children….Rejoice with Jerusalem, and be glad with her, all you who love her; Rejoice for joy with her, all you who mourn for her; that you may feed and be satisfied with the Consolation of her bosom, that you may drink deeply and be delighted with the abundance of her glory.”


This birth of a nation would also be tied with the birth of the Consolation of Israel.” In fact, all Israel was to rejoice with Jerusalem, the same Jerusalem that they had earlier mourned. This “Consolation” did come and was awaited by a Jewish Tzaddik (Righteous man) called Simeon the Just. It was the Jewish Nazarene physician who wrote:


Luke 2:25-32 (parts) – “And behold, there was a man in Jerusalem whose name was Simeon and this man was just and devout, waiting for the Consolation of Israel…so he came by the Spirit into the temple. And when the parents brought in the Child Jesus (Yahshua), to do for Him according to the custom of the law (Torah), he took Him up in his arms and blessed God and said:


‘Lord, now You are letting Your servant depart in peace,

According to Your word;

For my eyes have seen Your salvation which

You have prepared before the face of all peoples,

A light to bring revelation to the Gentiles,

And the glory of Your people Israel.’”


It is an amazing fact of prophetic history that the Nation of Israel was born in one day. It is an amazing fact of the Hebrews that of all the nations of the world, only they had a “history” that was foretold before it actually occurred. 


On the day of May 14, 1948, the birth of the Nation of Israel was born when the Jewish people declared their independence as a united and sovereign nation for the first time in over 2500 yearsSix months earlier for the first time in the history of the United Nations, a resolution was unanimously passed that was favorable for the Jews and the Jewish State in Israel.


Declaration of the Establishing the State of Israel “On the 29th November, 1947, the United Nations General Assembly passed a resolution calling for the establishment of a Jewish State in Eretz-Israel; the General Assembly required the inhabitants of Eretz-Israel (Land of Israel) to take such steps as were necessary on their part for the implementation of that resolution. This recognition by the United Nations of the right of the Jewish people to establish their State is irrevocable.”


In a twenty four hour moment of time, the United Nations Mandate expired for British control over the region of Palestine and the Nation of Israel announced her formal declaration of Independence.  That same day Israel’s independence was acknowledged by other nations of the world and the United States issued a proclamation recognizing the sovereignty of Israel’s nationhoodThe Nation of Israel was literally born in one day.  Within hours, the new babe of a nation, Israel, was attacked by the combined Islamic coalition forces of Egypt, Jordan, Syria, Lebanon, Iraq and Saudi Arabia.  The birth of Israel did not come as the result of a war but rather caused a war.

The lands surrounding Israel will undergo a radical transformation.  The architectural plans of the western economic globalists will be implemented as they rebuild a “New Middle East.”  The radical transformation of “nation building” will include: destruction and dismantling, reclamation and restoration, and reconstruction and integration into the larger world society.  This is the model that the western global community envisions for their new world age to comeNew continental boundaries will be redrawn


NevilleThe methodology of destruction and reconstruction has been discussed in many international commentaries of social change.  It is seen as “divide and conquer” in the most simplistic of sociological paradigms of change.  It is also seen in the more recent models of social change inflicted in regional conflicts that are called “Balkanization” and “Finlandization.” 


Neville Chamberlain - the father of 20th Century appeasement, who whet Hitler's appetite by granting him Czechoslovakia on a platter. Will Arik Sharon become the father of 21st Century appeasement? Heaven forbid...


This was first noticed in the global perspective in World War II when Hitler convinced the western community that the peoples of German descent in Czechoslovakia needed German military representation.  It was the appeasement stance of British Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain that opened the door for the German military presence in the center of that country in the Balkans.  Soon Czechoslovakia lost its own identity as the German Nazi forces took over the country.


This same model of globalization is being used in the Nation of Israel. The American State Department and the western global world community has been extremely persistent in pursuing the “Road Map” for a new Palestinian State.  This “Road Map” appears to be the model now for the “New Middle East”.  The seven year globally engineered “Oslo Peace Accord” where Israel trades land for peace appears to be resurrecting itself as the central fulcrum for peace in the Greater Middle East


In Part Two, The Pathway of NATO and the “New Middle East, we will look at the long term evolvement over the past two decades of the present of the United States and the European Union as they move their global presence into the heart of the Middle East.

Message from BibleSearchers


BibleSearchers scans the world for information that has relevance on the time of the end.  It is our prayer that this will allow the believers in the Almighty One of Israel to “watch and be ready”.  Our readiness has nothing to do trying to halt the progression of evil on our planet earth.  In our readiness, we seek to be prepared for the coming of the Messiah of Israel so that goodness and evil will be manifested in its fullest.  Our preparation is a pathway of spiritual readiness for a world of peace.  Our defender is the Lord of hosts. The time of the end suggests that the Eternal One of Israel’s intent is to close out this chapter of earth’s history so that the perpetrators of evil, those that seek power, greed and control, will be eliminated from this planet earth.  The wars of the heavens are being played out on this planet earth and humans will live through it to testify of the might, power, justice and the love of the God of Israel.  In a world of corruption and disinformation, we cannot always know what the historical truth is and who is promoting evil or mis-information.  We cannot guarantee our sources but we will always seek to portray trends that can be validated in the Torah and the testimony of the prophets of the Old and the New Testament.
