“I sit on a man’s back choking him and making him carry me, and yet assure myself and others that i am sorry for him and wish to lighten his load by all means possible….except by getting off his back.”
— Leo Tolstoy
The greatest of all paradoxes is the riddle of human nature. We humans are capable of immense love and sensitivity but we have also been capable of greed, hatred, brutality, rape, murder and war. This duality of what has historically been referred to as ‘good’ and ‘evil’ has troubled the human mind since we first became fully conscious, thinking beings: are humans essentially ‘good’ and, if so, what is the cause of our ‘evil’, destructive, insensitive and cruel side?
The eternal question has been why ‘evil’? In metaphysical religious terms, what is ‘the origin of sin’? More generally, if the universally accepted ideals are to be cooperative, loving and selfless—ideals that have been accepted by modern civilizations as the foundations for constitutions and laws and by the founders of all the great religions as the basis of their teachings—then why are humans competitive, aggressive and selfish?
Must we prepare for another global conflict or can we choose instead the lasting peace?
Tao Te Ching was written around the 6th century BC by the sage Laozi (or Lao Tzu, “Old Master”). It offers both political advice for rulers and practical wisdom for people.
. . .
Beyond the gate of experience
flows the Way, Which is ever greater
and more subtle than the world.
If you want to be a great leader,
you must learn to follow the Tao.
Stop trying to control.
Let go of fixed plans and concepts,
and the world will govern itself.
The more prohibitions you have,
the less virtuous people will be.
The more weapons you have,
the less secure people will be.
The more subsidies you have,
the less self-reliant people will be.
Therefore the Master says:
I let go of the law,
and people become honest.
I let go of economics,
and people become prosperous.
I let go of religion,
and people become serene.
I let go of all desire for the common good,
and the good becomes common as grass.
– Lao-tzu, Tao Te Ching

Is 2012 Israel’s 7th and Final Conflict?
by Doug Krieger
A POST ANALYSIS OF THE 3 PROPHETIC WARS AND “WHEN” THE FINAL CONFLICT WILL SET IN – COULD IT BE “2012? … LIKE “2012 – COULD IT BE ISRAEL’S SEVENTH AND FINAL CONFLICT OF THE ARAB-ISRAELI WAR?….and SAY WHAT do the measurements of the New Jerusalem of the Apocalypse have to do with it?
This can be considered a bizarre “far out” article! You will either love it or leave it and suggest I’m just another quack out there…Nevertheless, I think the following synopsis is spot on.
Notice that Jordan does not participate in the “final phase” of the 7-phase Arab-Israeli Conflict – nor does Egypt, nor Iran (by proxy yes via Hez.) and neither does Iraq…Why?
Iraq has been “immobilized” by the USA and the nations of the Saudi Arabian Peninsula remain resolute in their trade with the Ships of Tarshish – i.e., the West, headed up by the good old US of A.
Once this conflict has been resolved – then all “peace breaks out” (so it would appear) with the rebuilding of the Third Temple in Jerusalem by the Jews – this will create an entirely different equation in the Middle East wherein the “West Bank Wall” will be torn down – then the clouds of war will come forth once again…but this time Israel will be relieved via her treaty known in Isaiah as the “Treaty of Hell and Death” with what will be the Antichrist himself!
Which nation alone can accord such an agreement? You would never guess … it is Portugal! No, Canada! No, Germany! No, England! No, Paraguay! No, China! No, Russia! No, no and no…let me disabuse the Stratfor Group – USA! So…with this “Defense Pact” enforced upon Israel – the second concentric circle launches forth – TURKEY, IRAN (note, not Syria nor Lebanon – they’ve already been knocked out of the game), Egypt and North Africa (once called Libya by Horodotus) and Sudan (ancient Cush – and even the black portion of Sudan has been severed from this mix) – they are Gog-Magog – Kings of the North and South and Ezk. 38-39 will be fulfilled…this will occur during the first 40 days of the 70th Week of Daniel and then 250 more days until the dedication of the Third Temple – now, remember the “Treaty” will be signed on a Passover – Passover and Happy Hanukkah are always 250 days apart and during this time it will take 7 prophetic months or 210 days to clean up the radiated mess!
Hanukkah is the Feast of Dedication – dedication of what? Of course, the Third Temple – now that Islam has been defeated – there abides 2300 days in Daniel 8:13-14 for “sacrifice” AND “desolations” – According to Dan. 12:12 there are 1,290 days of desolations – so a simple math problem: x + 1,290 = 2300 days…..x = days of sacrifice; therefore 1010 + 1290 = 2300 days (Note: 1 x 1 x 1 x 2 x 9 = “18” – so even here the NJ is in view!)…
After the Gog-Magog War which will take place during the first 40 days of the Seventieth Week of Daniel – Note: 40 days is the number for Testing – Children of Israel wandered in the Wilderness for 40 years; Jesus was tempted in the Judean Wilderness for 40 days and, of course, Noah rose above the waters for 40 days and 40 night of rain and the “fountains of the deep” were broken up!
Now – after the Gog-Magog War the “Armageddon Campaign” will ensue until the end of desolations – it will culminate in near Jerusalem and then at the last minute Messiah “with all His saints” will save the day – good thing we read the end of the book! It looks great – for some not so great!
So – 3 wars…clearly delineated in the Scripture of Truth…
Everything we’ve printed so far has come to pass in some very tangible fashion – and it will culminate in these three Prophetic Wars – it was Shimon Peres, the President of Israel (still is) who immediately after the last conflict with Lebanon and Hezbollah (the 2nd Lebanon conflict) indicated that Israel had had 6 phases of the Arab-Israeli War/Conflict and he so designated them – I think I put them in my article as (1948), (1956), (1967), (1973), (1982) (2006) and awaiting the next and final (2012?).
Now, don’t freak out here but these 6 wars and the final or 7th – and “7? in the mind of an Israeli Jew is huge – in that on the Seventh Day the Almighty rested from all His work; therefore, using strictly the Gentile-type Gregorian Calendar (since Israel is at war with Gentile Powers) – we find, dropping of the centuries…
1948 + 1956 + 1967 + 1973 + 1982 + 2006 = 11,832 or 1 + 1 + 8 + 3 + 2 = “15? one of the Prime Numbers of the New Jerusalem of the Apocalypse in that Revelation 21:16 states: “The city is laid out as a square; its length is as great as its breadth. And he measured the city with the reed: twelve thousand furlongs. Its length, breadth, and height are equal.” A furlong is equal to 660?; therefore, 660? x 12,000 furlongs = 7,920,000 Linear Feet / 5280? (feet in a mile) = 1,500 miles or 1 of the 12 edges of the New Jerusalem and since all her measurements are 1,500 miles we multiply her 12 edges (since she’s cubed) and it will equal 18,000 miles. Thus is the PRIME NUMBER of the New Jerusalem “18?.
You see, this 2012 insofar as “Israel’s Seventh and Final Arab-Israeli Conflict” concerns – known as THE ORACLE OF DAMASCUS – does loom as a very real possibility – and if the measurement – the PRIME NUMBER of the New Jerusalem is integrated into this mix – these numbers go bonkers! All this sounds bizarre…
I leave you with this staggering notation:
1948 – when it all began + 2012 – when it all may “end” = 1948 + 2012 = 3960 = 3 + 9 + 6 = “18? the Prime Number of the New Jerusalem – IT’S TIME TO FREAK OUT! But why not completely LOOSE IT?
ARE YOU READY – THE NEW JERUSALEM IS THE ULTIMATE MEASURING INSTRUMENT AND ISRAEL IS GOD’S TIME PIECE – SHE IS A “CUP OF TREMBLING” TO ALL THE NATIONS ‘ROUND ABOUT:
1948 + 1956 + 1967 + 1973 + 1982 + 2006 + 2012 = 12,834 or 1 + 2 + 8 + 3 + 4 = “18? – the Prime Number of the New Jerusalem. And, are the “12 Tribes of Israel” prepared to contend…for 1 x 2 x 8 x 3 x 4 = 192 or 1 + 9 + 2 = “12? and these 12 Tribes of Israel – destined for the NEW Jerusalem – are they not followed by their G-d in these End of Days? Well, do the math: “18? x “12? = “216? which in Hebrew Gematria is found in Exodus 14:19-21 wherein each verse adds up to 72 and 72 x 3 = 216 (check out the film PI). We better take a closer look at 2012, Israel’s Three Prophetic Wars and the New Jerusalem!

Britain summons Israeli ambassador over decision to build in occupied territory
London (CNN) — Britain summoned Israel’s ambassador on Monday over Israel’s decision to build thousands of new homes in occupied territory, calling it “deplorable” and saying it threatens a two-state solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, the Foreign Office said.
It is the latest fallout after Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu authorized planning to begin for the new housing units in the West Bank and East Jerusalem, a move widely viewed as retaliatory after the Palestinian Authority won a U.N. bid to be recognized as a “non-member observer state.”
Israeli Ambassador Daniel Taub has been formally summoned by Minister for the Middle East Alistair Burt, who will spell out British concerns, the Foreign Office said in a news release.
“Any decision about any other measures the UK might take will depend on the outcome of our discussions with the Israeli government and with international partners including the U.S. and the European Union,” the release said.
