I have been banning all Iranian products into my house since 1979. Here is a group now that is asking you to do the same. Actually, they are asking for a little more.

Ask President Bush, today, to impose strict economic sanctions against Iran’s import of refined petroleum products. Iran, one of the world’s largest producers of crude oil, lacks the facilities to produce a refined product. As a result, Iran is one of the largest importers of gasoline – nearly half of all gasoline used by Iranians. Now, the Iranians are feeling the pinch of raised prices and gasoline rationing imposed by the government.

A bipartisan group in the U.S. House is seeking economic sanctions against Iran in an attempt to reduce the amount of gasoline imported by Tehran.

The legislation calls for companies that provide Iran with gasoline or assists with the import of gasoline would not be allowed to sell gasoline to U.S. customers. Iran imports most of its gasoline from Persian Gulf states and India.

According to Rep. Mark S. Kirk, R-IL: “This is becoming the critical weakness of the Iranian government, meaning its dependence on gasoline. Riots [in Iran] show the gasoline shortage is a growing danger to the Iranian regime and a diplomatic opportunity for Western countries to force Iran to adhere to international nuclear rules.”

The legislation would provide President Bush with several options, as well as several penalties. Included among these are: denial of loans and credits from the Export-Import bank and loans or licenses for exports to the U.S. [Um…I thought we already had this?] The House Foreign Affairs Committee has already approved “legislation designed to strike at investments in Iran.” State Department spokesman Tom Casey said, “We need to do everything that we can to continue to raise the stakes in Iran in terms of its nuclear program.”

Another supporter of the bill, Rep. Tom Lantos, D-Calif., said, “Our goal must be zero foreign investment.” To reach that end, the U.S. is also working with European allies to try to increase penalties against Tehran. Of course, the countries that do a lucrative business with Iran don’t want to do anything to upset the powers that be.

Vote Your Opinion NOW!

Just as we have defeated big business here in America (NO illegal aliens!), we must bring to the light our European ‘friends’. We must explain to them, in a calm way, that there are higher ideals in this life than how much money you can grab. This is one of them.

Unless you want all of your women living under the Caliphate, which means clothed from head to toe with no skin showing, you must be with us on this. There truly is a war against us. It is to elimate everyone who does not believe as they do, Sharia Law, their idea of what a Muslim should be, and many more horrific things.

The Final Move Beyond Iraq.

Thank you.

Good News! The Final Move Beyond Iraq was spotlighted in Thursday’s edition of USA Today and is currently ranked #16 nationally.

I am going to ask you to accept an assignment. Would you buy 4 books – one Friday, one Saturday, one Sunday and one on Monday? The cost would be approximately $32.

You are wondering why I am asking you to do this.

On Monday, the United States will meet with Iran in Baghdad. This will be the first meeting since 1979. This diplomatic meeting is an appeasement move to ask the Iranians how we can resolve the crisis in Iraq. This is extremely dangerous. This would be like going to Auschwitz during World War II to ask Hitler how we could curb fascism.

The Iranians have threatened to wipe Israel off the map, and in fact, just last Thursday Ahmadinejad threatened to “uproot the Zionist regime” should it become necessary for Israel to defend herself as a result of the events in Lebanon. He has said the America would disappear from the planet. Iran is responsible for funding terror through Hezbollah and Hamas and for the deaths of 85 percent of the troops in Iraq. This is not the time to expose our underbelly to a terrorist state. The U.S. State Department conference will embolden terrorists to increase the number of body bags returned to America.

This will send a signal that the U.S. is frightened of Iran’s strength and is willing to negotiate.

If you will accept the assignment, next Tuesday I will be on network shows nationwide to attempt to wake up the sleeping nation.

Click here to see the radio and television shows on which I have been interviewed in recent days. We are fighting this battle; the secular media is paying for it. You can help take it to the next level, if you will do this and ask your friends to do the same.

I am going to take a moment to answer some critical questions that you are asking me concerning this crisis:

  • What would happen if the U.S. withdraws from Iraq?

    All Christians in Iraq would be massacred. The Kurds who were gassed by Saddam Hussein would be massacred. Millions of Arabs who provided assistance to the U.S. in Iraq will be killed along with their family members. Millions will die. A Persian (non-Arab) revolution will spread through Iraq from Iran and will push all the way to the border of Israel through Lebanon, consolidating with Hezbollah. The next move will be to destabilize moderate Arab countries before heading to the West.

  • Is America in danger of a nuclear strike by Iran?

    At this time, the answer is “no.” Iran’s nuclear program is not advanced enough to pose a threat to us in 2007. However, by 2009 Iran will have reached the point of no return, if not stopped. What they can do is deliver a handful of nuclear material which would kill hundreds of people. A “dirty bomb” of 25 to 35 pounds of nuclear material could kill 250,000 or more in a highly populated city. Ten kilotons of nuclear material the size of a refrigerator imported from a South American country could kill millions.

  • Since Iran is responsible for 85 percent of the Iraqi and American deaths in Iraq, is there any possibility that it will head to the West with suicide attacks?

    Yes; intelligence leaders have told me that orders have been given to Hezbollah – a sub-contractor of Iran – to do precisely that beginning this summer. The plan is to send Palestinians into the U.S. as suicide bombers to kill Americans and to say that it is a result of U.S. support for Israel. This would completely cloak the fact that Iran was behind it. In fact, the media refused to acknowledge that Iran was behind the 4000 Katyushas fired into Israel last summer.

  • What is the most important thing the U.S. can do?

    The U.S. can help the Kurds close the Iranian border. This would stop the majority of terrorism in Iraq. In order to do that, they must have proper arms. The Kurds are not Arabs, and they are allies of the U.S. A small U.S. military base in Kurdistan to forestall an invasion by Iran or Turkey is needed. President Barzani told me that the Kurds would fight the war from the north to the south, placing themselves and not placing American troops in harm’s way. Another measure would be to impose severe economic sanctions on Iran. The entire plan is laid out in The Final Move Beyond Iraq, and also at www.beyondiraq.com under “Petition to the President.”

  • Please send this email to everyone on your list. Encourage them to pray. This is not a book to frighten people, but is a book to tell the truth. It will help Americans understand that this is a battle for the soul of this nation. The battle is presently being won by God-haters that do not believe in evil, but consider terrorists to be “freedom fighters.” They consider America to be the evil one in the conflict.

    Will you please write a review? The extremists are trying to kill this book and stop this cause before it has even been birthed. The liberal Left believes that the 9/11 terrorists were right and that we should feel guilty for defending ourselves; that if we simply give them what they want (our lives and the soul of America).

    Thank you to the 26 wonderful friends who wrote a 5-star review. I am praying that we get four times that many. Why? I just received word that a U.S.-Arab organization that fights what they call the extremist “Christian Taliban” (Bible-believing, pro-Israel Christians in America) is organizing to launch a major campaign to trash the book. This group considers Christians more dangerous that the 9-11 terrorists.

    Below are some of the negative reviews that have been posted on the website:

    Brainwashing the Gullible, May 23, 2007
    Wow, Mr. Evans should be charged for intellectual terrorism. His hate for Muslims and his pro-Israeli/Neo-Con bias in this book are staggering. This is just a preparatory brainwashing of the public so that it would accept a pre-emptive attack (ie. Aggression) on Iran by the US and Israel. It’s quite sad that this is a best-seller, signalling a shift in American society into extremism and deep ignorance about the world.

    History attempting to repeat itself?, May 20, 2007
    I’m sorry, but there are some phrases that need to be eradicated from our vocabulary, especially when we’re discussing religion, ethnicity & etc., and “The Final Solution” is one of them.

    war isn’t security, May 19, 2007
    Yes, Americans do need to wake up and realize that as long as we meet any possible threat to our security with more war and violence there will ALWAYS be more enemies.

    that’s right – wake up, America! May 19, 2007
    The authors of this book, and those who think like them, are truly dangerous people: warmongering religious fanatics desperate to bring about a final clash of civilizations, no matter how many lives have to go up in smoke. It’s not just the so-called “Islamofascists” we have to worry about – it’s the fascists in our own society. Why don’t we wake up from our slumbers and start calling them by their true name?

    Wrong Country Bushie, May 19, 2007
    I just think it’s funny all these pro-war hypocrites never actually want to step foot on the battlefield, just write books and speak out for battle.

    The 1960s produced the television series Lost in Space. While much of that series may have been forgettable, except to today’s cult following, one catchphrase resurfaces from time to time. One of the characters was a child named Will Robinson. His companion was a robot whose attitude toward young Will was always protective. When threatened with peril, the robot would intone, “Danger, Will Robinson! Danger!” While the robot could warn of danger, Will was the one responsible to take the proper evasive action to protect himself and/or his family.

    Today, we in America are being warned repeatedly about the danger we face from Iran and its headlong rush to acquire nuclear weapons. In late October 2006, at a fundraiser hosted by Lee Roy Mitchell, owner of Cinemark Corporation, and Norm Miller, of Interstate Batteries, for my The Final Move: Beyond Iraq television special, Lt. Gen. Moshe Ya’alon, former IDF chief of staff, gave a keynote speech. As he had done in our previous meetings, Ya’alon issued yet another warning of the danger posed by the Iranian government. Among his comments, he said, “Iran is now the center of gravity. The only nation that can shut down 100 percent of Iran’s nuclear program and neutralize their ability to retaliate is the United States.” He went on to say, “It cannot be done in 2008; it will be too late.”20

    In talking with Ya’alon, his rationale was clear. Sometime in 2007 or 2008, Iran will reach the point of no return in its nuclear program. Once they do that, even if they are set back somehow immediately afterward, they can always proceed to produce nuclear weapons in secret later on because they will already have the knowledge of how to do so. Iran must never be able to reach this point in its nuclear research.

    If Iran is to be stopped before this, the United States must act decisively in 2007. If we wait until 2008, elections will be too distracting to Congress to be able to rally support for such an effort—an effort that may necessitate military action. With the Bush administration’s policies and plans concerning the war on terror already under tremendous fire at home, it is unlikely those vying for political office will have the courage to do what is right in the face of Iran’s nuclear threat.

    Lt. Gen. Ya’alon is only one of many who have cried, “Danger, America! Danger!” And, like young Will Robinson, the decision to act to protect our nation and our families is ours to make, and the plan is ours to execute. The safety of future generations is in our hands. The questions now are: What will we do with this deadly knowledge? How much time do we have to act? Do we have the resolve to win the war on terror regardless of what it takes? Or do we allow ourselves to be swallowed up in the tsunami of terrorism that is certain to engulf the shores of America if the Islamofascists are not stopped?

    The battle for the soul of America is being lost. Intelligence leaders have related to me that terrorists fighting in Iraq are planning to head to the U.S. as early as this summer. If those with moral clarity sleep, America’s next president may be presiding over a nuclear 9/11.

    In just 8 days, a battle will be fought for the soul of America by God-fearing men and women worldwide. I’ve been to Iraq twice this year; the last trip was at the invitation of President Barzani for a State visit. The book, The Final Move Beyond Iraq, will be in stores on May 15.

    We are asking every caring person to purchase books beginning May 15. Why? Because this book can be driven to the #1 spot on the New York Times bestsellers’ list. Why is that important? It will place this book before tens of million of people and will open doors of opportunity to share its message and wage this battle on secular networks.

    The battle can be won, but it has to be fought by knowing the truth (it will set us free), and through prayer.

    Millions of praying saints (Daniels and Esthers) can reverse the curse. Esther won the battle:

    “If you keep quiet at a time like this, deliverance for the Jews will arise from some other place, but you and your relatives will die. What’s more, who can say but that you have been elevated to the palace for just such a time as this?” (Esther 4:14)

    Daniel won the battle: “The people that do know their God will be strong and do exploits…” (Daniel 11:28)

    Once it became apparent to Hussein that his bravado was not going to deter the U.S.-led coalition from an attack, he began to order the disbursal of trainees from the various terrorist training camps around Iraq, most notably in Nasiriyah and Fallujah. The trainees were provided money, arms, explosives, and transportation. Teams of terrorists were assigned the job of penetrating Saudi Arabia’s borders with the assignment to carry out terrorist attacks. One team was able to murder a Saudi judge, Abdul Rahman al-Suhaybani, known for combating subversive activities in his province. The team members then went underground to join the vast terror networks, al Qaeda, al-Muwahhidun, Hezbollah, and others so that they could one day emerge to kill again.

    With the U.S. air and ground offensives in full swing and coalition troops steadily advancing on Baghdad, Hussein began to lose confidence in the outcome of the war. It is thought that Hussein began to put into effect several possible escape plans. One involved calling in markers from his friends in Belarus. Hussein asked for charter flights to transport cargo and members of his family out of Iraq. A plane identified as a Belarusian IL-76 transport allegedly took off from Saddam International Airport and traversed Iranian airspace on its flight to Minsk, Belarus. There was initial speculation that both Hussein and his sons were on board the flight.3 Another exile-of-choice location was Paris, and indeed a group of Hussein’s handpicked scientists were among the first to be transported from Iraq to Paris via Damascus. This was yet another example of French cooperation with Saddam Hussein’s regime.

    Another arrangement involved Hussein joining a convoy of Russian diplomats from Baghdad to Damascus. When it was suggested that there might be a safer route through Amman, the Russian delegation declined and insisted on going to Damascus. With the convoy was Russian ambassador to Iraq, Vladimir Titorenko. It has been reported that Hussein donned a disguise and joined the convoy carrying some twenty-five Russians. Just outside Baghdad, the convoy came under fire; five diplomats were wounded, some seriously, said Russian foreign ministry spokesman Alexander Yakovenko. Although the U.S. Central Command maintained that there were no coalition forces near where the attack occurred, Secretary of State Colin Powell contacted Russian foreign minister Igor Ivanov to express his sincere apology for the incident. Powell did not admit any U.S. culpability though.4

    As the ground fighting around Baghdad began in earnest, Lt. Gen. John Abizaid, CENTCOM deputy commander, reported, “Regular Iraqi army units seemed to vanish as the coalition advanced. Low numbers of Iraqi prisoners indicated that the regular army units were avoiding the fight…Regular Iraqi forces [along with senior officers] ‘have just melted away.’”5

    With coalition troops entering Baghdad, the city fell into chaos. Various Iranian-armed and funded militia groups began to make their presence known in the city. The Shiite faction was, from all accounts, the most well-armed and organized of the groups. The popularity of the anti-American, anti–Saddam Hussein groups grew as it became known they could provide food and medicine to the neighborhoods they controlled. One such area became known as Sadr City, a low-income suburb of Baghdad and home of some two million Shia Muslims.

    It looked as though advance preparations by Iran and Syria to make Iraq virtually uncontrollable were in full swing. The rage and antipathy of the Muslim world was directed at the “Great Satan.” Decree after decree and fatwa after fatwa were issued, calling for jihad against the United States. One came from Dr. Muhammad Sayyed Tantawi, sheikh of Al-Azhar. He rallied the Iraqi people to continue their “Jihad in defense of religion, faith, honor, and property, because Jihad is a religious ruling of Islam aimed at opposing aggressors,” and encouraged Arab and Islamic volunteers to travel to Iraq, “to support the Jihad of their oppressed brethren there, because resistance to oppression is an Islamic obligation, whether the oppressor is Muslim or not.”6

    In meetings between Iran’s Khamenei and Khatami and Syria’s al-Assad, the leaders determined that the United States should be met with violent resistance from the various Iraqi factions and from jihadists imported for the purpose of creating pandemonium for the coalition troops. The men called on the radical Islamic forces in the region to oppose an American occupation by every means possible. Again, Yossef Bodansky reported that Majlis (Iranian parliament) deputy Majid Ansari, in a briefing prior to the summit between Khamenei and al-Assad, outlined Iran’s position:

    Even if they [the Americans] succeed in capturing Iraq…they will still face difficulties.… We [the Iranian leadership] are hoping that the Americans would be bogged down in Iraq and fail to realize their expansionist politics.…Even if America were to become victorious in Iraq for a short time…such a victory will be the beginning of serious problems for America’s warmongering and expansionist politicians.7

    Both leaders were well aware that they were unable to forestall an American attack but could create havoc within Iraq once Saddam Hussein was deposed. The call for Islamic fanatics—terrorists, all—went forth and was answered by volunteers from Algeria, Saudi Arabia, Egypt, the Palestinian Territory, Yemen, Pakistan, Afghanistan, Chechnya, Iran, and Syria, among others. The question for the coalition troops now became one of how to identify peaceful Iraqi citizens from the influx of terrorists bent on killing them in any way possible.

    The battle for the soul of America is being lost. Intelligence leaders have related to me that terrorists fighting in Iraq are planning to head to the U.S. as early as this summer. If those with moral clarity sleep, America’s next president may be presiding over a nuclear 9/11.

    A Message from Mike Evans:

    In just 11 days, a battle will be fought for the soul of America by God-fearing men and women worldwide. I’ve been to Iraq twice this year; the last trip was at the invitation of President Barzani for a State visit. The book, The Final Move Beyond Iraq, will be in stores on May 15.

    Daniel won the battle: “The people that do know their God will be strong and do exploits…” (Daniel 11:28)

    Please pray for God’s favor on the national campaign that begins May 15 with the book, The Final Move Beyond Iraq. Pray for a great open door with the networks, and pray for strength and favor as Mike steps into the fiery furnace to battle for the soul of America. Pray for protection as he battles against God-haters and radical Islamic fanatics (9/11 types) that are living among us. Pray also that everyone you know will join the battle by getting the word out, by buying the book and movie, and by telling their friends. Pray that every pastor will preach and every Sunday School teacher and prayer group will teach on this subject using the PowerPoint program and message entitled “What is Evil” available on the www.beyondiraq.com site.

     Below is an excerpt (Pages 42-44) from Dr. Mike Evans’ latest book, The Final Move Beyond Iraq:

    We must know our enemies. We have two opponents, the irreconcilable wing of Islam and the evil power that inspires it. Once God’s people see this clearly, we will plunder hell to populate heaven.

    The basis for defeating bigotry and despotism of Islamofascism is rooted in the Christian faith and moral clarity of George W. Bush, just as defeating Communism was in the faith and moral vision of Ronald Reagan. Totalitarian regimes must be opposed. We must establish a biblical basis and principles for the battle that President Bush and America are fighting. This war cannot be won without this foundation. If we turn inward, relaxing in our own comforts, and stop promoting all the Judeo-Christian principles on which this nation was built, we too easily let evil have its way.

    In the minds of Europe’s leftist elite, Bush is a bloodthirsty, dimwitted cowboy. (Ronald Reagan was given a similar label, yet it was he who coined the term “Iron Triangle” to define the marriage between the liberal special interest groups, the politicians, and the media.) They mock Mr. Bush and impugn his Christian faith for seeing the world as black or white. They see his moral compass as a dangerous instrument. They have fallen in love with appeasement because they do not believe in evil and thus refuse to confront it.

    On September 11, 2001, evil surfaced in America in a way never before seen. The nation rallied to confront evil in Afghanistan and Iraq. Since that time, our wounds have healed, our senses have been deadened, and our memories dulled. I believe we are on the brink of the greatest opportunity in history to confront the source of all evil. If we fail, the results will be catastrophic.

    Liberals have a difficult time seeing moral issues clearly because most of them are moral relativists. They reject absolute standards of good and evil or right and wrong. In their worldview, man is perfectible, human nature is on a path toward enlightenment, and the concept of original sin is primitive.

    These humanists invented Arafat as a peacemaker and gave him the façade of a freedom fighter, not a terrorist. In their eyes, those who blow up Jews are driven to such acts because of injustices. The victims of these crimes are seen as the causers of the problem, and the perpetrators are seen as the innocent and exploited. Those same humanists believe the lie that bad acts must be blamed on society, or psychological or economic circumstances. Moral relativists despise those who grasp the nature of evil. Victims are demonized and murderers are glorified. We saw that in September 1993 when Yasser Arafat was invited to the Clinton White House. Instead of being apprehended as a thug and murderer (there was an outstanding call for his arrest for ordering the brutal murders of ambassador Cleo Noel and chargé d’affaires C. Curtis Moore in Khartoum, Sudan, in 1973), he was welcomed like an international statesman.

    President Bush, in his State of the Union speech following 9/11 said, “Evil is real, and it must be opposed.”17 President Bush was called “simplistic” because he did not see diversity and tolerance as a reasonable alternative. They wanted Bush to apologize for looking to his God and the Bible for guidance.

    Secular humanists make excuses for evil, or worse, deny evil’s existence and coddle it by refusing to confront it. Instead, they feed it. Jesus did not negotiate with evil; He did not sweet-talk it, nor did He compromise with it. Evil is seeing moral issues in shades of gray, not in black and white. The reality of evil is rejected because the Bible is rejected as the gold standard of moral truth.

    The Nazi Party referred to U.S. liberal ambassador Joseph Kennedy as Germany’s best friend in London because of his open anti-Semitism. In their twisted minds, the Jews had provoked the war because they intended to destroy the German State. “Every Jew,” wrote Nazi politician Joseph Goebbels, “is a sworn enemy of the German people.”18 He believed in the Jewish conspiracy myth called The Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion. To the very end, the Nazis maintained plausible deniability about their injustices to the Jews. Adolf Eichmann—whose continued pleas that he was “just following orders” at the Nuremburg trials made him the poster child for abdication of conscience—was a prime example.

    If the devil does exist as the Bible says he does, there is no better proof of it than that those following his agenda seek first to destroy Jews, and then Christians. It is a lesson we should have learned in World War II and face again with the Islamofascists.

    At the Harvard graduation ceremony in 1978, Alexander Solzhenitsyn shocked that august university and the nation with his speech, “A World Split Apart.” Solzhenitsyn saw the effects of moral decay in America in the attempts to divorce God from its public squares and build a wall of separation between church and state, replacing God with the government as the creator of liberties. Having undermined her moral vision, America had lost her courage to confront evil in the world.

    The battle for the soul of America is being lost. Intelligence leaders have related to me that terrorists fighting in Iraq are planning to head to the U.S. as early as this summer. If those with moral clarity sleep, America’s next president may be presiding over a nuclear 9/11.

    In just 12 days, a battle will be fought for the soul of America by God-fearing men and women worldwide. I’ve been to Iraq twice this year; the last trip was at the invitation of President Barzani for a State visit. The book, The Final Move Beyond Iraq, will be in stores on May 15.

    Below is an excerpt (Pages 33-36) from Dr. Mike Evans’ latest book, The Final Move Beyond Iraq:

    A wind of counter-revolution is blowing across the Middle East and directly into the faces of the Islamofascists and their hopes for spreading Khomeini’s Islamic revolution worldwide. Both Iraq and Afghanistan have held democratic elections. President Bush was right in his decision to invade Iraq—he has established a base to inject the vaccination of democracy into the bloodstream of oil-rich, tyrannical regimes that suppress the human rights of the masses and confuse them with outlandish conspiracy myths about Israel and the West. The terrorists, however, are trying to destroy this move toward truth, freedom, and democracy—and the liberal Left in America is helping them succeed.

    America is not hated by liberal leftists, appeasement states, and oppressive regimes because it is doing wrong, but because it is doing right. The belief of these regimes is that a perfect world is a weak and anemic America that embraces the perpetrator and castigates the victim.

    President Bush’s plan, like that of Ronald Reagan toward the Soviet Union, will bring a new beginning to the Middle East. For the first time since the rebirth of their nation in 1948, the Israelis see the opportunity of a lifetime for a more democratic region. President Bush’s battle for the soul of the Middle East is beginning to succeed, much to the chagrin of the liberal Left. In order for his course to continue, God-fearing Americans must unite and battle for the soul of America.

    The foundational promise on which the return of Jesus Christ and all prophecy is contingent is found in Matthew 24:14:

    This gospel of the kingdom will be preached in the whole world as a testimony to all the nations, and then the end will come.

    This doctrine is taught and believed by more than one billion Christians worldwide that consider themselves “evangelical.”

    The Middle East is the last frontier for the proclamation of our Judeo-Christian principles, fulfilling Jesus’s last words on the earth:

    But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.

    —ACTS 1:8

    The church will, in fact, respond to the words of Jesus, and in doing so will birth the greatest revival the Middle East—and the world—has ever known.

    The basis for President Bush’s conviction is this: good versus evil. It is a doctrine of the Bible from Genesis to the cross and to the very end of the age, as well as the foundational doctrine in President Bush’s war on terror. As Edmund Burke’s oft-quoted saying goes, “All that is required for evil to triumph is for good men to do nothing.” It was the same doctrine Ronald Reagan used in defeating the so-called “Evil Empire” of the Soviet Union.

    Why do followers of Christ feel a God-ordained call to wage war against evil and to support Israel? How is this mission based on the Bible, and how will it birth a Great Awakening in America and the Middle East, causing these believers to refocus their passions on confronting the root of all evil?

    For example, how can Christians support a war when Jesus has said, “Love your enemies”? The New Testament clearly states that civil magistrates can wage war against all enemies, both foreign and domestic. Romans 13:1–4 NASU says:

    Every person is to be in subjection to the governing authorities For there is no authority except from God, and those which exist are established by God. Therefore whoever resists authority has opposed the ordinance of God; and they who have opposed will receive condemnation upon themselves. For rulers are not a cause of fear for good behavior, but for evil. Do you want to have no fear of authority? Do what is good and you will have praise from the same; for it is a minister of God to you for good. But if you do what is evil, be afraid; for it does not bear the sword for nothing; for it is a minister of God, an avenger who brings wrath on the one who practices evil.

    Today, the battle of good versus evil is being fought from within. Liberals hate the America of which Christian presidents dream. They hate Israel, the Bible, and Christians in general. They subject Christians to scorn, ridicule, and discrimination. There is no attack on American culture more deadly than the secular humanists’ attack against God in American public life.

    The insults, verbal abuse, and attacks are so severe that anyone who contradicts them is labeled ignorant, evil, racist, and a bigot. The dumbing down of America has begun, and all in the name of political correctness and a new godless globalism.

    The hippies of the 60s have become the establishment against which they once railed. Even though they run the culture, the media, the educational system, the courts, the arts, and so forth, they are still self-destructing. From the public and private sector, from mainstream Hollywood to the public schools, from Washington politics to local judges, from the arts to the sciences, they are self-destructing.

    America, the noble experiment, is under siege. The tidal wave of evil is sweeping over our nation: the self-injuring, spirit-destroying, conscious-searing practices of pornography, abortion, homosexuality, and drug and alcohol abuse are being supported as they never have been before. There is a vicious moral and spiritual war raging in the hearts and minds of Americans.

    ————————————–

    At the heart of liberalism is a belief that evil really doesn’t exist, people are basically good, and thus individuals can’t really be held accountable for the wrong they do. The liberal tactic is that it is better just to talk with people since we are basically all the same and reasonable at heart, rather than bringing criminals to justice or fighting to stop those committing crimes upon humanity.

    The liberal crowd wants God and the Bible out of America. Our first president, George Washington, said, “Let us with caution indulge the supposition that morality can be maintained without religion.…Reason and experience both forbid us to expect, that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principle.”3 John Adams said, “Our Constitution was made only for a religious and moral people. It is wholly inadequate for the government of any other.”4

    We are asking every caring person to purchase books beginning May 15. Why? Because this book can be driven to the #1 spot on the New York Times bestsellers’ list. Why is that important? It will place this book before tens of million of people and will open doors of opportunity to share its message and wage this battle on secular networks.

    The battle can be won, but it has to be fought by knowing the truth (it will set us free), and through prayer.

    Millions of praying saints (Daniels and Esthers) can reverse the curse. Esther won the battle:

    “If you keep quiet at a time like this, deliverance for the Jews will arise from some other place, but you and your relatives will die. What’s more, who can say but that you have been elevated to the palace for just such a time as this?” (Esther 4:14)

    Daniel won the battle: “The people that do know their God will be strong and do exploits…” (Daniel 11:28)

    Below is an excerpt (Pages 26-28) from Dr. Mike Evans’ latest book, The Final Move Beyond Iraq:

    —————————-

    Shia Islam was founded in A.D. 661 by Ali ibn Abi Talib. It was from his name that Shia evolved. It is literally a derivation of Shiat Ali—“partisans of Ali.” As a descendant of Muhammad, Ali was thought to be the last of the true caliphs. He was wildly popular until he came face-to-face in a battle with the army of the governor of Damascus in A.D. 661. It is said that the Damascene soldiers attached verses from the Quran to the tips of their spears. When faced with fighting a force hiding behind the words of Muhammad, Ali’s army declined to fight. Ali, left only with the option of negotiating with his enemy, sought appeasement. While he escaped death at the hands of his enemy in open combat, Ali was eventually killed by one of his own rabid followers.

    When Ali died, the governor of Damascus, Mu’awiya, anointed himself caliph. Ali’s son, Hassan, the rightful heir to the caliphate, died under suspicious circumstances, while the next in the line of succession, Hussein, agreed to do nothing until Mu’awiya died. He was soon disappointed yet again, however, when Mu’awiya’s son, Yazid, appropriated the position of caliph and went to battle against Hussein. The bloody battle of Karbala that erupted resulted in the deaths of Hussein and his army. Only Hussein’s baby boy survived the carnage, and he became the hope of reestablishing Ali’s claim to the caliphate.

    With the ascension of Mahmoud Ahmadinejad to the position of power in Iran, we have heard much about the last known descendant of Hussein, Muhammad al-Mahdi, or the Mahdi. Al-Mahdi was the Twelfth Imam in the line of Ali who disappeared down a well at the age of four. Refusing to believe that he was dead, his followers imbued him with timelessness. They declared him to be merely “hidden,” and that on some future date he would suddenly appear to reestablish an Islamic caliphate worldwide. Their eschatology, however, proved problematic; it espoused an apocalyptic upheaval in order for the Mahdi, or Hidden Imam, to ascend to his rightful place of leadership. These “Twelvers” championed the belief that every individual, regardless of their religious belief, would one day bow to Islam—or die.

    As time passed and the Mahdi failed to make an appearance, authority passed to the ulema, a body of mullahs endowed with the power to appoint a supreme leader. Perhaps one of the best-known imams was Grand Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini.

    Notable among the various dynasties of Persia were the Safavids who ruled from 1501 to 1736. It was under this dynasty that Shia Islam became Iran’s official religion. It was also during this time that Persia was united as a single sovereignty that became the bridge to what we now know as Iran.

    It was the Afsharid leader, Nadir Shah, who first declared himself the shah of Iran in 1736. He invaded Khandahar in Afghanistan, and two years after assuming the throne in Iran, he overran India. He amassed great wealth including the seizure of the renowned Peacock Throne and the 105-carat Koh-i-Noor (Persian for “mountain of light”) diamond. (The magnificent diamond was presented to Queen Victoria in 1851 and is now part of the celebrated British Crown Jewels.) Nadir Shah was a tyrannical ruler; his reign ended with his assassination in 1747.

    The Afsharid dynasty was followed by the Zand and Qajar dynasties. In 1906, Iran experienced a constitutional revolution that divided the power of rule between the shah and a parliamentary body called the Majlis. The last of the Qajar dynasty rulers, Ahmad Shah Qajar, was overthrown in a coup in 1921, and the Pahlavis—who sat on the Peacock Throne until 1979—took the power as shahs. Ahmad Shah Qajar died in exile in France in 1930.

    It was the first Pahlavi, Reza Shah Pahlavi the Great, who in 1935 asked the world to stop referring to his nation as Persia and to use the name Iran instead. Iran means “land of the Aryans” and was the name the natives used in referring to their country.4

    During more than twenty-five centuries of history, Persians have maintained their unique sense of identity. Though they converted to Islam, they have not always followed the accepted views of the religion. To an extent, Zoroastrianism, the religion of the early Persians, colors the Iranian variety of Islam.

    Iran is now not only one of the largest countries in the Middle East, but also in the Islamic world. Because of past experiences, Iran has developed a thorny separatism. Invaded during both World Wars and later set upon by Iraq, Iran has reason to fear foreign influence.

    The borders of Iran remained largely unchanged during the twentieth century, but the desire to recapture the glory of the vast Persian Empire has apparently lain dormant. Perhaps this pragmatism is the driving force behind Iran’s seemingly sudden emergence as a budding player in the world’s nuclear superpower game.

    It was during the reign of the last shah of Iran, Mohammad Reza Pahlavi, that plans to bring Iran into the nuclear age began. Bushehr was to be the site of the first two reactors and, indeed, building on the site began in 1975. While the shah was still in control, research and development on fissile material production was also initiated. This, however, as well as all of the shah’s other ambitions, ended with the Islamic revolution of 1979.

    From the desk of the Jerusalem Prayer Team:

    In just hours, we leave for the border of Iran and the torture chamber of “Chemical” Ali. The road will be dangerous. An Iranian terror organization inhabits that mountainous region; it’s time to do some serious praying for our safety.

    At 5:30 AM, we began the drive northeastward toward Iran. Kurdistan encompasses over one-third of the population-inhabited area of Iraq. It has the largest oilfield in the world, Kirkuk. It reaches from Khanaqin in the east and stretches along the Iranian border to Sinjar in the West, taking in the Plain of Nineveh. Our first destination was Sulaymaniyah. I learned that the Iranians are smuggling heroin, opium and hashish into Iraq. The border is open for more than 400 miles, and is controlled by the Mahdi Army and the Bader Brigade, both pro-Iranian Shiite organizations.

    Our first meeting was with General Sheikh Ja’affra. This small man with a large black mustache is the Minister of Peshmerga Affairs. He was so thankful to the Americans for liberating his people. “If you withdraw now, you can be sure the terrorists will come to America. It’s quite simple; you asked them to fight you in Iraq and they did. If you leave, they will consider that you have been defeated, and will take the fight to you.

    “The Mahdi Army is trained in Iran, and is modeled after Hezbollah. Their terror equipment comes from Iran. And yes, it was responsible for the attack in Najaf as well as all the attacks in the south. The suicide bombers are coming from al-Qaeda camps in Iraq, and are being replenished from Afghanistan. They are moving Afghan drugs into Lebanon to sell throughout Europe. Iran is behind all the attacks in Iraq in one way or another.

    “To win the war, the borders must be closed and monitored by troops that are not loyal to Iran; troops that can be monitored. Most of Iraq is controlled by the Shia, and for that to change, a new Iraq must be built from Kurdistan southward. Our region is a model of democracy and stability. It is not necessary for U.S. troops to die here; we can stop the terror in these cities if you will let us. So far, your government has said, ‘No.’”

    Over lunch we met with Vice President Kosrat Rasul Ali. He invited me to come back and meet with him and President Barzani and Abdul Abdulbari Alzebari, a member of the Iraqi Congress. Mr. Ali said to me, “We have 200,000 soldiers, you have 300,000. You don’t need military in harm’s way; work with us and we will control all of the ground in Iraq. If you will let us, we will shut down Iran. Now 60 percent of Iraq is controlled by Iran; we will see that the number is zero percent.”

    Following lunch, we visited the Red House, Saddam Hussein’s headquarters in Sulaymaniyah, and the site of his torture chambers. A precious man, Kiowa, took us to the torture chambers where he was victimized. He was hanged from meat hooks from his chest while his arms were tied behind his back. At the same time, electrical shocks were applied to his body parts. I could see the terrible pain in his eyes as he repeated his story.

    I was stunned to learn that Iranians are buying property in Iraq and pouring a fortune into the fundamentalist mosques. Most who escaped to Iran during Saddam’s regime are back in Iraq and strongly support Iran. They have made trade agreements and are pouring money into Iraq. There is an embassy in Baghdad and consulates in almost every region. Tourism agreements allow millions of pilgrims to visit Karbala and Najaf. This is a boon for terrorists who enter the country, along with the pilgrims.

    Iran’s goal of achieving instability in Iraq is succeeding. The Holy Grail of understanding is that the U.S. battle in Iraq is between stupidity and stability. America’s liberal, anti-war left is giving aid and comfort to the enemy. The cries of, “We’re losing the war; they’re winning,” emboldens an enemy that has a 9/11 ideology. As I looked at footage of terrorist attacks on US troops, I became angry. To think that 9/11 terrorists have come to Iraq from around the world to fight us while the liberals in the U.S. scream, “Get out!” This is insane. How can you make Iraq the central front on the war on terrorism and not have a mess on your hands?

    To have uncapped the genie of Shiite fundamentalism in Iraq with a Shiite super-state next door was a prescription for disaster. One cannot find one Arab out of one thousand that does not believe the U.S. invaded Iraq over oil. To try to convince them otherwise is an exercise in futility.

    While we outwardly threaten Iran for their interference in Iraq, we close our eyes to the fact that there are Iranian agents behind virtually every rock. The embassy and consulates of this member of the axis of evil are nothing more than war rooms to fund and plan the battles against U.S. troops.

    I am certain that if the U.S. provided the tools for the Iraqi Kurds to fight the war and simply controlled the skies and provided back-up, U.S. deaths would drop and victory would come in time. The liberal media, however, will have to be put into press pools and monitored; they are doing more to undermine a victory in Iraq than the enemy.

    “Ali Baghdad” and his forty thieves that pillaged the banks in Iraq are out of their cage like a wild bird. They have migrated to the Middle East, their souls filled with hatred and their pockets filled with U.S. dollars. If an Iranian-style Islamic revolution happens in Iraq, the fire could jump across the Middle East.

    I have just learned that another Blackhawk helicopter was shot down in Najaf, the fourth in two weeks. Intelligence officers told me that the helicopter attacks are carried out with Iranian missiles. Nine more U.S. soldiers have been killed just in the past 48 hours.

    I was just told by three different airport agents that our flight would not leave for Jordan this morning. Why? There is no jet fuel. Iranian proxies are blowing up the oil trucks as they head toward Kurdistan, and the Turks will not allow oil to be transported into Iraq.

    Without morality, democracy is one of the worst forms of government. The world found it to be so during the French Revolution and during Hitler’s day. No power on earth can ignore the Kurdish dilemma indefinitely. Thirty million living Kurds and the blood of a multitude of the dead cry out for justice.

    Democracy literally means “rule by the people.” The only people-group supporting democracy is the Iraqi Kurdish people. It’s a fantastic success. Everything President Bush wanted to see in Iraq is present in Kurdistan. Erbil is the fourth largest city in Iraq with Baghdad first, Kirkuk second, and Mosul third.

    The headlines today are gut-wrenching. A suicide bomber driving a truck loaded with explosives killed 135 in Iraq’s deadliest bombing since 2003. Shiite Prime Minister al-Maliki blamed Saddam Hussein supporters. An Iraq-born Israeli official tells me that it was Sunni al-Qaeda members. The problem lies with al-Maliki and his political ally, Moqtada al-Sadr and his Mahdi Army of over 60,000 terrorists. I am so glad I came to Iraq, and especially Kurdistan, in order to tell the world the story of democracy at work in at least a region of Iraq.

    Maybe President Bush is right about fighting the global war from Iraq. If he does that, he must surely fight it as a war with allies, not enemies. The words of Christopher Columbus may very well describe the President’s War on Terror with Iraq as the central front: “All who heard of my project rejected it with laughter, ridiculing me. There is no question that the inspiration was from the Holy Spirit because he comforted me with rays of marvelous inspiration from the Holy Scriptures.”

    My first meeting today at 9:00 AM was in the State House with the Minister of State, Karim Sinjari. I had two more high-level intelligence meetings with Iraqi diplomatic leaders. I cannot attribute a quote from them for security reasons. I do not want an Iranian agent to put a bullet in their heads.

    Karim is a very humble man; we sip tea as he tells me the story of two attempts to kill him by terrorists and a third by Saddam who poisoned him; he almost died. He repeated a story I had been told earlier:

    “Saddam disappeared 191,000 men between the ages of ten and sixty years so the women could not remarry. They would have no proof that their husbands were dead.”

    Saddam used the Koran to back his claim that he had permission to kill the enemy and confiscate everything they owned. He secured a fatwah, a legal decree from an Imam to give the legal, theocratic right to wipe out the Kurds.

    I was told that Iranian agents by the tens of thousands are everywhere in Iraq, and that Iranian proxies number in the hundreds of thousands. I can honestly say I really don’t like that, knowing I speak out strongly against Iran on network shows, and that I wrote Showdown with Nuclear Iran. I feel a bit like a canary in a mine shaft. I am so thankful for my faith; it strengthens me in the darkness.

    Karim told me that the biggest problem they have is the influx of Iranian agents into the whole of Iraq. Iran is working with Syria, a Sunni state, to kill Iraqis and with the Shiites to pit one group against the other.

    According to Karim, Paul Bremer (head of the Coalition Provisional Authority in Iraq) opened the borders, forcing the removal of all security check points in Iraq. Bremer was warned that this would create terror, but he wanted to show the world he was tolerant of everyone. Iran is now running one of the biggest employment services in all of Iraq. For a few dollars, they put unemployed Iraqis on the terror payroll. It is also one of the biggest intelligence agencies operating through the Iraqi government. It makes no difference if you wear a police or military uniform; the vetting process does not work, and the fruit is that secrets are being shared with Iran which now is aware of every move.

    Said Karim, “Your army is in a holy war with global jihadis worldwide. Thousands of Iraqi fanatics lived in Iran and returned home as agents with the full support of Iran. Remember, the Iranian revolution was planned in Najaf by Ayatollah Khomeini. Najaf knows well how to plan Islamic revolutions. The only reason they are not attacking you in America is because you invited them to attack you in Iraq.”

    Al-Maliki says the U.S. should not use Iraq for a confrontation with Iran. This is another sick joke. Al-Qaeda has between 4000 and 5000 terrorists in Iraq. If we leave, the danger will be a thousand times greater, but in the U.S., not in Iraq. The terrorists will take the battle to the streets of America. The only restraining factor is the U.S. troops. We keep the terrorists occupied by fighting them in Iraq. I was told that if we leave Iraq, all of the Arab countries would run away from the experiment in democracy, and that the entire region would explode.

    Karim further opined, “Saudi Arabia is so convinced that Iran is coming, they are building a 400-mile wall at the cost of $13 billion to keep them out. Saudi is panicking because 50 percent of their population is Shiite, and the oil region is in the Shiite area of Saudi. They know a nuclear Iran could mean their end. They pray that the U.S. or Israel will stop them.” I have been told that over 500,000 Shiite “missionaries” are gathered in Saudi Arabia with one goal…convert Sunnis.

    We are taping the last segments of the prime-time special based on this book. Late today at the studios of the state television station, we were given classified footage never shown on U.S. television, or anywhere else. I saw images of Saddam’s flag being planted in each village after the gas canisters were dropped. At first, gas that stayed low to the ground was used. When the people fled to the mountains, canisters containing poison gas that rose in the air was dropped in order to kill those fleeing. Later, I was shown footage of Saddam’s death squads exterminating multitudes, including Islamic fascists beheading Americans. It was the most unspeakably horrific sight I have ever seen.

    It was a shock to see the face of Ali Hassan Majid on Iraq television. He was standing trial for genocidal crimes against humanity. “I am not apologizing,” he said, “I did not make mistakes. I am the one who gave the orders to the Army to use WMDs against 100,000 Iraqi Kurds.”

    We were cleared by the government to see and have access to the footage. Some of it will be incorporated into the television special, “The Final Move beyond Iraq.”

    January 30, 2007, Northern Iraq

    (I am interviewing Adnan Mufti, Speaker of the House of Kurdistan.)

    “I read the Iraq Study Group report that criticized your region for not flying the Iraq flag,” I said.

    Adnan responded, “Yes, they did. This was the same flag planted in over 5000 villages that were gassed. We have a constitution, and our region is democratic. Why must we fly the Iraqi flag? Would the U.S. ask the Jews that suffered in the Holocaust to fly the Nazi flag? We refuse to honor the ‘Hitler’ who gassed our people; we want the new flag approved by our Constitution.” Adnan also rejected the Iraq Study Group’s proposal that two terror states, Iran and Syria, “meddle in our affairs.”

    “Why,” he asked, “did no one from the Iraq Study Group come here? They ask where the proof is that the Bush policy is succeeding in Iraq. We are the proof. Your nations saved us from extermination. We are a stable region that is a model of everything the U.S. wants for Iraq. Why is it being kept hidden?” I am reminded as I look into his eyes that he was the target of a bomb attack by fanatic Muslims because of his strong support for America, and was poisoned by Saddam Hussein, and almost died.

    Adnan placed a letter in my hands to deliver to President Bush and Vice President Dick Cheney. He said, “I sent it through diplomatic channels via the U.S. Ambassador, but did not hear back.” I promised I would do my best to get it into the hands of the President.

    I found the Kurds to be very tolerant of other religions. They enjoyed telling me their history, which traces back to the Medes. From the story of Daniel in the lion’s den and the conversion of the Mede king, Darius, to the appeal of a Jewish orphan, Esther. They told me of the Magi, the wise men who followed the star and presented gifts to the Christ child, and of the Medes who were converted on the day of Pentecost.

    They told me about Christians by the tens of thousands that had fled north out of Sunni and Shiite strongholds toward the Valley of Nineveh, a few miles from Erbil. The horrible story of a fourteen-year-old being crucified for sharing his faith broke my heart as I thought of the innocence of my own precious grandchildren. I heard of a pastor who was beheaded for sharing the Gospel, and of women having had acid thrown in their faces for going to church. The church in Iraq is under siege, yet the world remains silent.

    I found it strange that the U.S. has no base in Erbil to fight the war on terror. The greatest success story in all of Iraq, a model to inspire true democracy, is being completely ignored. Kurdistan is where America needs to invest its money rather than bleed money from Kurdistan into the coffers of the regimes that consider America the enemy. I also found it odd that 400 billion dollars has been spent in Iraq, and the Kurds have no U.S. military equipment with which to fight the war on terror. To see our allies using old Russian AK-47s is an embarrassment.

    In this book, I will give you a no-spin understanding of the problem, but also of the solution. The first step is to begin by rewarding our allies and stop appeasing our enemies; what a novel approach.

    As an example, I believe the U.S. needs to move a major military base into Erbil and allow the Kurds to have 100 percent of the money they were promised. This is not happening. The U.S. needs to reward stable regimes economically. To do it, the U.S. must stand up to Turkey and Iran, both of which hate the Kurds. The Kirkuk oilfields should be turned over to the Kurds that have, in the past, controlled the Kirkuk region. Saddam killed them to get them out and moved pro-Saddam regimes in to protect his investment.

    The word in the U.S. is to redefine the war goals in Iraq. Yet, it is clear that the U.S. has been 100 percent successful in the Kurdish region which represents millions of people. I have proposed to the Iraqi Kurdish leaders that I would work with them to host an Iraq Study Group in the U.S. based on moral clarity, as opposed to an “appeasement study group.”

    The war in Iraq can be won; one only needs to go to Kurdistan to see one of the greatest success stories. Military moms and dads need to go to Kurdistan. When they do, they will be treated as heroes and will know that the sacrifice was not in vain. The Kurdish people run to kiss them and honor them in ways beyond America’s ability to imagine. They love the families because they, too, have lost loved ones. They are filled with amazing compassion and gratitude.

    The U.S. National Intelligence Agency declassified a report suggesting that President Bush’s new strategy for controlling violence must show progress within twelve to eighteen months or risk further deterioration. Show progress? What a sick joke. You have one-fourth of Iraq living in stability; not one U.S. soldier has been killed there…ever. There has not been a terror attack in 18 months. If that is not progress, what is?

    Robert Gates, U.S. Secretary of Defense, says that the U.S. is planning to stop Iran from contributing to the violence in Iraq. If so, the border with Iran must be closed, the Embassy and consulates closed, and the Iraqis that have proven their allegiance, i.e., the Kurds, must be given the tools to do the job. It is not securing Baghdad; it is about isolating Iran. That will not happen unless the push is from the north to the south, with the Iraqi Kurds doing the pushing. The Turkish army has already pushed its way into Southern Kurdistan. If the U.S. does not move into the area quickly, the Turks and the Iranians will. The war must be fought north to south with allies, not south to north with enemies.

    Over and over I have been told that Iraqi ministries in Baghdad are helping the terrorists. The Shiites and Sunnis will not end their conflict; it is being fueled and fed by Arab countries. The only hope to save Iraq is by enlisting the Iraqi Kurds.

    Winning the war in Iraq will not happen by fighting in Central or Southern Iraq. America is not going to win over corrupt theocracies by distorting their reality. Getting in bed with the enemy is not the solution; it is the problem.

    It is so obvious to me that Iraq is headed over the cliff of an Islamic revolution that is being birthed between the Shiites and Sunnis.

    The following is from Mike Evans’ Iraq journal. Over the next several weeks, we will share a portion of Dr. Evans’ journal with you each Friday.

    Part I – Iraq Journal

    As I finish the research for this book in Iraq, my mind is spinning with memories of my time here during the Persian Gulf War. Iraq possesses the largest untapped oil reserves in the world in the Kirkuk fields. Like the diamond mines of Cambodia, the fragrance of the oil of Kirkuk has, like a snake charmer, seduced Turkey and Iran into an insane obsession.

    Iraq is a small country about the size of California, yet two-thirds of it is not inhabited; it is simply dessert. The majority of the population lives in Central and Northern Iraq.

    I can’t sleep. I keep thinking about the events of the last twenty-four hours throughout Iraq, as the final minutes of Ashoura slowly sift away like the sands in an ancient, apocalyptic hourglass.

    This is the holiest day on the Shiite calendar and commemorates the 7th Century death of the martyr-saint Imam Hussein, the son of Ali, the Prophet Mohammad’s cousin. Like dry leaves on the wind, millions of pilgrims have been blown into Iraq from Iran and Muslim countries worldwide.

    In Najaf to the north, hundreds of thousands of men vowing to become martyrs beat themselves with chains and cut themselves with swords in an attempt to feel the pain of Imam Hussein. Their blood flows like a river, mixing with the blood of hundreds of thousands throughout Iraq. With joy, they cry out to their fallen and martyred Imam.

    Suddenly, chaos erupts as Sunni Arab gunmen and Shiite followers of Ahmed Hassani Yemeni, a vanguard of the Mahdi, attack. (The Mahdi is a messiah-like figure in Islamic mythology. He is referred to by some as “the perfect human being,” and his apocalyptic appearing will usher in the perfect world in which all Christians and Jews will bow down to Islam.)

    The battle began as terrorists moved closer toward Najaf with plans to kill Grand Ayatollah Ali-Sistani, the most powerful cleric in Iraq. His followers believe that he speaks for Allah. Sunni terrorists wearing the headbands of martyrdom that declared them to be “Soldiers of Heaven” opened fire on the pilgrims. It was the perfect storm…a conspiracy timed to coincide with the climax of Ashoura.

    High-level Iraqi intelligence leaders have told me that it was an operation by Iran and coordinated with the Mahdi Army under the leadership of Sheikh Moqtada al-Sadr in an attempt to drive the last nail in President George Bush’s coffin. The plan was to kill al-Sistani, since he was a moderate, and blame it on the Sunnis. Al-Sistani is the enemy of the radical al-Sadr who believes al-Sistani to be a traitor to the Islamic revolution. Without a quick response from the U.S. and Iraqi military, it would have happened.

    Maniacal screams of “Bush, the infidel’s greatest Satan” interspersed with cries mocking Christians and Jews and monkeys, pigs and infidels, could be heard reverberating through neighborhoods.

    As the day-long battle continued, I realized it could spark an Islamic revolution. U.S. troops rushed in and averted a holocaust that the murder of al-Sistani would have ignited. Red flames from U.S. Abrams tanks and Blackhawk helicopters lit up the dark sky near Najaf. Suddenly a burst of machine gun fire hit its mark and a trail of black smoke followed one of the helicopters as it crashed to the ground. The streets of Iraq were covered with more U.S. blood as ground troops and armored vehicles poured into the city. Some two hundred people were arrested and three hundred were killed during the attack.

    Najaf was turned over to the Iraqi army in December to provide security operations. In the first major battle, the Iraqis had to be bailed out by American ground forces.

    Hundreds of terrorists had set up fortified encampments, complete with tunnels, blockades, forty heavy machine guns, and at least two anti-aircraft weapons ten miles north of the city.

    The government sent one battalion and police to raid the armed camp. They were surrounded and pinned down, and had to call in American help.

    Today, I looked into the eyes of Iraqi widows whose shy smiles are tinged with pain. The WMDs of Saddam Hussein killed every living thing in their village. These women in black mourn the deaths of their husbands, fathers, sons and brothers. The pictures of their loved ones are their only link to the past.

    In tears, they tell me, “We hear the American media asking, ‘Where are the weapons of mass destruction?’ Tell them to come here; we will show them. These weapons of mass destruction are in our blood and in our souls. We will take you to the mass graves.” Tomorrow, we will go with them. Many, however, do not even have a gravesite to visit. The bodies of their loved ones were completely destroyed, preventing the widows young and old from remarrying.

    Entire villages were exterminated, erased from the map as if they never existed. Every living thing was destroyed…dogs, cows, but especially the men. It mattered not whether they were six months old or sixty years old. This genocidal barbaric atrocity has been erased from the minds of the people and from the newspapers of the world. It is as if it never happened. It did happen…as the world slept.

    Iraqi weapons of mass destruction killed more than one million Iranians and almost 200,000 Iraqi Kurds. Still, the anti-war liberals scream about an unjust war because the WMDs could not be found. Iraqi intelligence officials tell me that they were shipped to Syria. They also readily tell me that Saddam’s top leaders smuggled billions into Syria and are now working with Iran to defeat the Great Satan (America) in Iraq.

    Early in the day, I met with the Speaker of the House in Kurdistan, Adnan Mufti. Northern Iraq is run by a Kurdish president. I asked him to tell me about terrorist attacks in Erbil, one of Iraq’s largest cities, and the city over which he presides. With us was U.S. Colonel Harry Schute. “Terrorist attacks?” smiled Mufti. “This city has not had a terrorist attack in over one-and-one-half years. U.S. Colonel Harry Schutte spoke up, “The U.S. media will not tell you that. [The city is so safe] our airport has over 80 flights per week.”

    There are several sides to this news article, so the facts shall speak for themselves. Israel left Lebanon after having a buffer for 18 years, only to allow Hizbollah to claim a victory due to terrorism and continue to recruit young, influential minds to become suicide bombers, murderers, and haters of Israel.

    Many people in the south of Lebanon did not hate the Israelis, just as the Israelis do not the Lebanese. The problem, it appears, is Hizbollah. They do not want Israel to exist as they are puppets of Iran supported by Syria.

    Does this mean Israel has always been right? In protecting herself, yes, in her policy, who knows? Unless we have been within the government or lived there, it is hard to say; but it is well known that no government is 100% right. That is just absurd!

    It appears that the Arabs and other Muslims believe this to be an incursion by Israel, while Israel is the country that has lost 1500 people to terrorist attacks in the past few years. Some of the articles on the side with Hizbollah are Musharraf, Abdullah discuss Lebanon, Syria will step in if Lebanon invaded (as if they ever left), Aid stuck in transit to traumatised Lebanon and REGION: Iran tells Israel to ‘pack up and go’. These articles were found in The Daily Star and the The Daily Times (Pakistan).

    On the Israeli side of the story, we have (Haaretz Daily Paper) Peretz: Hezbollah has fired 2,200 rockets at northern Israel so far, Report: Nasrallah says IDF incursions won’t stop rocket fire, PM: Media biased, doesn’t show ‘murderous viciousness’ of Hezbollah, (Jerusalem Prayer Team) Iran’s Hizballah Ready to Attack Israel and U.S., A Strategic Assessment of the Hizballah War: Defeating the Iranian-Syrian Axis in Lebanon and Hizbollah is Here.

    Reading these, one might be led to believe they were in the Twilight Zone. We hope when this matter is resolved, it is truly resolved. Until that time, we will be forced to write more fiction than is desired.

    PS. Many of these articles are short in length. That is one of the reasons I chose them, so view a few. Thanks.

    I am in Jerusalem, and my heart is breaking for the Jewish people. Prayer groups are meeting across this nation to pray for the peace and safety of the people, and for those who have lost loved ones in the murderous rocket attacks.

    Please let Prime Minister Olmert and the Jewish people know that you are praying for them today. Click here to sign the petition of prayer support.

    Israel is not just fighting Hezbollah in Lebanon; hundreds of Iranian Revolutionary Guard troops (the “Al-Quds Force”) are on the ground there as well, according to an Arab diplomatic source in Washington. It was a contingent of these troops that was responsible for the radar-guided C-802 missile that targeted the Israeli warship off the coast. Four Israeli seamen were lost in that attack.

    “This was a direct message to the Israelis that we are fighting the Iranians here,” said the Arab diplomatic spokesman.

    Hezbollah’s continued support comes from arms shipments being funneled into Lebanon through a well-established base in Syria. According to intelligence reports, “The order to increase assistance” is “directly from Tehran with the approval of the bureau of the leader Khamenei,” the official said. “The assistance mainly includes a large amount of weapons as well as ammunition, cash, and field rations.” This kind of assistance from their Iranian backers could lengthen Hezbollah’s fight against Israel. According to one source, Iran has also sent FL-10 naval missiles, additional Katyusha rockets and Fair-3 and Fair-5 missiles.

    Wednesday was one of the worst days of attacks as Hezbollah fired more than 100 Katyusha rockets into Israel. Two young brothers, 9 and 3, were playing in the streets of Nazareth when they suffered a direct hit from a Katyusha rocket. More than 135 people were taken to the hospital in Nazareth. The rockets that hit were thought to be Syrian-made.

    As I said last week, Israel is the last firewall between Islamic terrorists and America. We must understand that events in Israel will not stay in Israel. Sooner or later, America will face the same kinds of devastating attacks that we see there…assaults on our mass-transit infrastructure (rapid transit, subways, trains, etc.), homicide bombers in restaurants, shopping malls, even churches. We dare not bury our heads in the sand and say, “That’s in Israel; it doesn’t concern me.”

    Remember, God has called you and me to “‘Comfort, ye my people,’ saith your God.”

    Your ambassador to Jerusalem,

    Due to the health crisis of Prime Minister Ariel Sharon, former Mayor of Jerusalem and a friend of the Jerusalem Prayer Team, Ehud Olmert, has become the acting Prime Minister of Israel. Please pray for him.

    While mayor of Jerusalem, my dear friend Ehud Olmert flew to Dallas, Texas to speak at the first Jerusalem Prayer Summit. As acting Prime Minister, Ehud desperately needs the prayers and support of the Jerusalem Prayer Team, as does the nation of Israel.

    As you know, Israel faces crises on several different fronts. Iran looms large on the horizon due to the threats made against Israel by the Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. In Ahmadinejad’s opinion, the tiny nation of Israel should be “wiped off the face of the earth.” With his rush to possess nuclear weapon capabilities, Admadinejad could be armed and even more dangerous within the next 12 months. The missiles are ready to launch.

    Not only is Israel facing the threat from Iran, but closer to home, there is the threat of 10,000 missiles and 100,000 Hamas, Islamic Jihad, and now, al-Qaeda terrorists next door in Lebanon and the Palestinian Territory.

    Please pray today for Prime Minister Sharon, for acting Prime Minister Ehud Olmert, and for the nation of Israel.

    Should I have to go to Israel quickly, I would like to be able to take your words of support and comfort to Mr. Olmert and the nation of Israel. You may send a brief email of support to jpteam@sbcglobal.net.

    These are perilous times for Israel and for the world. I did not realize when God called me to a 21-day fast just how important this time would be.

    America is asleep. We must launch a national campaign to awaken this nation. It is imperative that I hire a media company to book network shows to get the word out about the crisis with Iran, the threat to Israel and America, and to mobilize millions of prayer warriors (Esthers and Nehemiahs). The simple fact is that one nuclear suitcase bomb in Tel Aviv could kill half a million Jews.

    Your ambassador to Jerusalem,

    Mike Evans
