World War III Starts In The Middle East? Saudi Arabia And Turkey Consider A Ground Invasion Of Syria Are Saudi Arabia and Turkey about to send ground troops into Syria? If so, how will Russia, Iran and the Syrian government respond? In 2016, Syria has become ground zero for a conflict that has been raging for centuries. For more than a thousand years, the Sunnis and the Shiites have been wrestling with one another for control of the Middle East. Saudi Arabia, Turkey and other Sunni nations had hoped to turn Syria into a Sunni nation, and for years they have been funding and arming ISIS and other Sunni insurgent groups in an attempt to overthrow the Assad regime.
Iran and Saudi Arabia: Divisions, proxy wars and chaos in the Middle East Tensions flared when Saudi Arabia executed a high-profile Shia cleric, but the Middle East has a long history of sectarian division. Much of it can be traced back to the rivalry between Saudi Arabia and Iran, as Annabelle Quince explains.
Saudi Arabia and Iran sit on different sides of the Sunni/Shiite divide that is tearing the Middle East apart. Saudi Arabia is predominantly Sunni, Iran largely Shiite, and both aspire to regional leadership.

The Beast System Arises: The Largest Bank In Norway Calls For The Elimination Of Cash The biggest bank in Norway is calling for the complete and total elimination of cash. Many local bank branches in Norway already don't deal in cash, but that is not good enough for DNB. They want a blanket ban on the use of cash, and they are selling this as a way to crack down on criminals and money launderers. But in the end, the truth is that they want to be able to force everyone in society to use the banks and it would enable them to collect fees on almost every transaction. It is an agenda that is being driven by greed, but it could also open the door for great tyranny.

Some airports do, indeed, use fingerprinting and retinal scans to confirm passengers' identity, especially for the various pre-check programs.

Israel's leaders opt to avoid action on three menacing fronts Former IDF rigs to probe for Gaza tunnels which Hamas published as an Israeli failure. Israel's leaders are clinging to lame locutions, "good judgment and responsibility", to avoid military action for dealing with crisis situations fast coming to a head on three extremely dangerous fronts: armed Palestinian terrorists are now tying up traffic on a major Israeli highway to the Israeli capital; southern Syria is sliding into the control of Hizballah after this Iranian proxy was permitted to amass 100,000 missiles in S.

Is Congress declaring war on ISIS... or on you? Passage of Senator Mitch McConnell's authorization for war against ISIS will not only lead to perpetual U.S. wars across the globe, it will also endanger our civil and economic liberties.

Therefore, it could be used to justify using military force against United States citizens on U.S. territory. It may even be used to justify imposing martial law in America.
The Left's Manufactured Muslim Crisis The greatest obstacle to defeating Islamic terrorism is still the left.
The left helped create Islamic terrorism; its immigration policies import terrorism while its civil rights arm obstructs efforts to prevent it and its anti-war rallies attack any effort to fight it.

Bill Salus: The Three Facets of Bible Prophecy Awareness This article is taken from a chapter within the NOW Prophecies book.

Millions of Jews Inciting Muslims by Praying for Rebuilding Holy Temple From the Muslim point of view, millions of Jews are inciting Mohammed's followers by praying every day that the Holy Temple be rebuilt.
Arab media have made it a daily ritual, almost a prayer, to charge that the Israeli government and Jews visiting the Temple Mount are really plotting to rebuild the destroyed Temple.

A New Era of Brinkmanship in the Middle East Even before the news of ten U.S. sailors being detained by Iranian forces on Tuesday, tensions were flaring in the region. Consider the events of just the last two weeks. Stoked by the Saudi execution of Shia icon Ayatollah Nimr al-Nimr on January 2, the war of words between Sunni-dominated Saudi Arabia and Shia-majority Iran rapidly took a turn for the worse. On Friday, Tehran accused Riyadh of intentionally striking the Iranian embassy in Yemen, a claim that Saudi officials reject.
