Popular Muslim media personality says Jesus will convert the world to Islam

Christ with angels

Jesus is a Muslim! Who knew? LOL

Adnan Oktar is the host of a popular TV show in Turkey; a prolific author; and a Sunni Muslim.

Leo Hohmann reports for WND, Oct. 27, 2014, that in a new documentary, “End Times Eyewitness,” Oktar says the Muslim world is eagerly anticipating the end days when their messiah, the Mahdi, as well as Jesus will come.

Jesus, whom Muslims call “Isa,” is not the messiah. Instead, Jesus is a Muslim. Not only is Jesus a Muslim, Jesus was never crucified nor resurrected from the dead.

And to top it off, Oktar says Jesus will soon return to Earth to convert the whole world to Islam! And this Muslim Jesus will be very persuasive.

The documentary is produced by WND Films and directed by a bible teacher and author of The Islamic Antichrist and Mideast Beast.

Oktar also says:

  • A group of supernatural beings made of fire called the djinn, from which we get the English word for “genie,” will assist Jesus and the Mahdi to convert the world to Islam.
  • However, there are bad djinn and good djinn. The latter are Muslim djinn, whose leader is the Mahdi. Only the good Muslim djinn will assist in converting the whole world to Islam.
  • According to Hijri calendar, the Mahdi (and the Muslim Jesus) will appear sometime between the years 1400 and 1500. Since the current Islamic year is 1435, the Mahdi and Muslim Jesus are likely already walking the earth! — in Istanbul! Oktar says, “Yes. We believe that Hazrat Mahdi has come and is busy carrying on his activities. We believe that he appeared in Istanbul, as that is how it is related in the Judaic accounts. This is how it is related in the Islamic accounts as well.”
  • The Mahdi will rule for seven years.
  • Oktar believes that he has the ability to communicate with the djinn (hopefully only the good Muslim djinn), and that they respect him and give him information.

Richardson points out that Oktar’s TV show is watched not just in Turkey, but throughout Central Asia, the Arab world and parts of Russia and Eastern Europe, Oktar has a close relationship with Turkey’s president and former prime minister, Recep Tayyip Erdoğan, who listens to and follows Oktar’s advice.

This is the same Erdoğan who saidThere is no moderate or immoderate Islam. Islam is Islam and that’s it.”

Turkey, which is a NATO ally, has already proved to be a growing thorn in the side of U.S. policy in the Middle East, refusing the use of its airbases for bombing raids against ISIS terrorists and providing safe haven for the militants. It has also been purchasing oil from ISIS-controlled oil wells, flooding the terrorist army with fresh cash.

In the documentary, Richardson says a coalition of Middle Eastern nations will invade Israel, and that Turkey is emerging as the dominant power in the Middle East and is positioning for a showdown with other powers, most notably Iran and Egypt. “The whole goal of the Turkish neo-Ottoman government is to rule the Middle East and the Islamic caliphate,” Richardson said.

Richardson believes Washington is still working with a foreign policy that is “based on a 10-year-old model” in which Turkey is seen as the moderate Muslim state that U.S. leaders would like to see replicated across the Middle East. “You still hear Joe Biden talk about how Erdoğan is his buddy and how they go way back together and he’s such a great friend,” Richardson said.

Richardson also says the Obama administration is “probably just putting on a little bit of a show,” with its limited bombing of ISIS targets in Iraq, and that “ISIS really is Turkey’s proxy in the Middle East,” supported financially and supplied by the Turkish Islamic government” in “a wider war against the Kurds, against Bashar Assad in Syria and against Iran. Richardson points out Turkey “refused the U.S. to use their soil for bombing raids against ISIS in Kobani, they allowed a lot of the refugees to flee into Turkey, but they would not allow them to go back and fight ISIS.”

Richardson believes Iran will eventually be drawn into Iraq to stop ISIS, especially if ISIS threatens the shrines or mosques in Iraq that are considered holy to Iran’s Shiite Muslim population. “If ISIS takes sacred cities in Iraq whether it’s Baghdad or Samara or Najaf, the Iranians are not going to let that happen and destroy those shrines and mosques…. I would expect even a year from now we could be in a very different situation. Iran already controls southern Iraq but within a year I would say their presence in Iraq could be far more overt.”

Russia begins large-scale militarization of the Arctic

Dr. Eowyn:

While Russia is systematically preparing and positioning itself in the Arctic region by militarizing, the Obama administration has done nothing to implement U.S. National Strategy on the Arctic.

Surprise! Not.

At a House hearing on “Implementing U.S. Policy in the Arctic” in July 2014, Rep. Duncan Hunter (R-CA), Chair of the House Subcommittee on Coast Guard and Maritime Transportation, said “The National Strategy calls for a strong U.S presence in the Arctic, but the Implementation Plan that accompanies it fails to identify what specific infrastructure or capabilities are required to meet those goals, or how or when they will be funded.”

A new frontier is becoming a center of great power rivalry.

It is the Arctic, believed to have vast untapped natural resources and increasingly is at the center of disputes between the United States, Russia, Canada, Norway and Denmark in recent years, as rising temperatures lead to a reduction in sea ice, opening up access to lucrative offshore oil and gas deposits.

Ed Adamczyk reports for UPI, Oct. 21, 2014, that Russia has begun a large-scale militarization of the Arctic Ocean region, after recent discoveries of oil and natural gas reserves under the ocean floor, as well as the possibility that a potential Northern Sea Route — an alternative to the Suez Canal — could soon be established as global climate change causes melting of Arctic ice.

U.S. official says Army’s industrial base in “death spiral”

Dr. Eowyn:

The U.S. Army’s assistant secretary for acquisition, logistics and technology is sounding the alarm that our military readiness is severely compromised by sharp reductions in research, development and acquisition spending.

But Obama instead is throwing open America’s doors to illegals from Central America and, reportedly, plans to import foreign Ebola patients.

Does anyone still doubt this president’s agenda is the destruction of America?

The Association of the United States Army (AUSA) is a private, non-profit educational organization that represents America’s soldiers and supports the U.S. Army – Active, National Guard, Reserve, civilians, retirees, government civilians, wounded warriors, veterans, and family members.

Stew Magnuson reports for National Defense that on Oct. 15, 2014, the final day of the AUSA’s annual conference in Washington, DC, a panel of officials, industry leaders and academics spelled out all the problems with the U.S. armed services’s research, development and acquisition enterprise.

The panel’s moderator asked at what point will Army readiness be compromised by sharp reductions in research, development and acquisition spending.

New poll finds President Ebola and the Democrats in trouble

Pres Ebola overpass signSeen on a freeway overpass somewhere in America

Meanwhile, ABC News reports, Oct. 15, 2014, that a new ABC News/Washington Post poll finds that President Ebola and the Democrats “are heading into the midterm elections in trouble.”

The poll’s findings, produced for ABC by Langer Research Associates:

  • The POS’s 40% job approval rating — STILL 40% JOB APPROVAL! — is the lowest of his career.
  • The Democratic Party’s popularity is its weakest in 30 years, with more than half of Americans (51%) seeing the party unfavorably for the first time, and just 39% see it favorably.
  • The Republican Party has a weaker 33%-56% favorable-unfavorable rating. But while the Democrats have lost 10 points in favorability just since August, the GOP has held steady – and its negative score has eased by 7 points in the past year. The GOP also benefits from its supporters’ greater likelihood of voting. All of which accounts for GOP candidates holding a 50-43% lead among likely voters for U.S. House seats in the Nov. 4 election.
  • 71% of Americans express worry about a terrorist attack.
  • 65% say they’re concerned about an Ebola epidemic.
  • Almost two-thirds say the country is headed seriously off on the wrong track.
  • Three-quarters are dissatisfied with the way the political system is working. Scorn is widely cast: Among those who are dissatisfied with the political system, two-thirds say both sides are equally to blame, with the rest dividing evenly between Obama and his party, vs. the Republicans in Congress, as the chief culprits. But as a nearly 6-year incumbent president, Obama – and by extension his party – are most at risk.
  • On which party they trust more to handle the main problems facing the country:
    • Among all Americans: it’s 39% vs. 39%.
    • Among registered voters: it’s 41% for the Republican Party vs. 38% for the Democrats.
    • But among likely voters this becomes an 8-point Republican advantage: 46% for the GOP vs. 38% for the Democrats.
  • Obama is at career lows in approval for his handling of immigration, international affairs and terrorism (long his best issue). Approval of his handling of the conflict with Islamic State insurgents in Iraq and Syria has plummeted by 15% in the last two weeks, amid questions about the progress of the air campaign now under way. (See “Obama’s ISIL strategy reexamined: air strikes ineffective; weak coalition“)
  • While Obama’s negative rating on handling the economy has eased, more Americans say they’ve gotten worse off rather than better off under his presidency:
    • 77% are worried about the economy’s future.
    • 57% say America has  been experiencing a long-term decline in living standards – all grim assessments as Election Day looms.

ABC poll on economy

Never forget that in Obama’s mind, there’s something wrong with you if you don’t think America is better off under his presidency.

Obama’s ISIL strategy reexamined: air strikes ineffective; weak coalition

Dr. Eowyn:

Obama is the opposite of King Midas.

He is King Merde because everything he touches turns into crap. steaming-turd-smiley-emoticon

His much-vaunted “counterterrorism” strategy against the Islamic State jihadists — a strategy that led the butt-kisser David Brooks to compare Obama with Moses — is no exception. It is a signal failure.

Originally posted on Consortium of Defense Analysts:

One month 4 days after President Obama’s grand announcement of a U.S.-led coalition to combat ISIL/ISIS or Islamic State (IS) “terrorists” (Obama says they’re neither Islamic nor jihadist!), as predicted by analysts, including members of this Consortium (their comments below are colored green), the “counterterrorism” strategy is failing.

Air Strikes

“Every analyst recognizes that attacks from the air may degrade (to a certain extent) the enemy, but not destroy him.” -A. James Gregor

“Well, airstrikes usually don’t amount to much. In the classic reason: You fly in and drop bombs, your aircraft run low on fuel and leave, and the locals declare victory and display pieces of a plane they shot down there because they’re still alive and in charge. Unless some key thing of the enemy’s got specifically attacked and destroyed in the raid, it doesn’t accomplish much….  Unless we concentrate force from the air upon…

British prime minister says 9/11 “truthers” are just like violent ISIS extremists

On September 24, 2014, Prime Minister David Cameron, the head of the government of the United Kingdom, gave a speech to the United Nations General Assembly in New York.

He warned world leaders at the UN that the Islamic State (IS/ISIS/ISIL) harbors “murderous plans to expand its borders well beyond Iraq and Syria… and to carry out terrorist atrocities right across the world.” Although the UN had reason to be wary about a new military campaign in the region because of memories of the 2003 US-led invasion of Iraq as well as the long struggle that has played out over more than ten years in Afghanistan, Cameron insisted that should not deter the international community from doing what it takes to tackle the IS now, saying, “We need to act. We need to act now.” The British prime minister then pledged his country will join the U.S.-led coalition to thwart those murderous IS “terrorists” — not jihadists!

Echoing what Obama (and also George W. Bush), Cameron said (beg. at 3:47 mark in the video), “The root cause of this terrorist threat is a poisonous ideology of extremism. This has nothing to do with Islam, which is a peaceful religion which inspires countless acts of generosity every day.”

What is appalling about Cameron’s speech begins at around the 4:48 mark. Decrying those who doubt the official story we’d been given about the terrorist attacks on 9/11 (September 11, 2001) in the United States, and those on July 7, 2005 in London, the prime minster said about the deniers and skeptics:

“We know this worldview, the peddling of lies — that 9/11 was somehow a Jewish plot, or that the 7/7 London attacks was staged. The idea that Muslims are persecuted all over the world as a deliberate act of Western policy . . . of an inevitable clash of civilizations.

We must be clear: To defeat the ideology of extremism, we need to deal with all forms of extremism, not just violent extremism. As governments, there are some obvious ways we can do this. We must ban preachers of hate from coming to our countries. We must proscribe organizations that incite terrorism against our people at home and abroad. We must work together to take down the legal online material like the recent videos of ISIS murdering hostages.  And we must stop the nonviolent extremists from inciting hatred and intolerance in our schools, our universities and, yes, even our prisons.

Of course, some would argue that this is not compatible with free speech and intellectual inquiry. But I ask you, would we sit back and allow right wing extremists, Nazis, or Ku Klux Klansmen to recruit on our university campuses? No! So we shouldn’t stand by and allow any form of non-violent extremism. We need to argue that promises of a global war on religion pitting Muslims against the rest of the world, they are nonsense. We need Muslims and their governments around the world to reclaim their religion from these sick terrorists, as so many are doing and quite rightly today…. And we need the strongest international focus on tackling this ideology, which is why here in the United Nations, United Kingdom is calling for a new special representative on extremism.

In other words, the prime minister of the UK does not differentiate between “violent extremists” like IS jihadists who murder and behead Christians and other innocent people, from “non-violent extremists” who disagree with the official view on 9/11 and 7/7. They are both “extremists” who must be dealt with severely.

The head of the government of the United Kingdom also makes no distinction between “right wing extremists” — whatever that means — and loathsome racists like Nazis and the Ku Klux Klan.

Mr. Cameron, are there no “left wing extremists”? Or do you mean to tell us that the left wing has only people of moderation, purity, and light? — like these angels below:
