While it may be successfully proffered that the commiserations of Dhimmi No More are somewhat unorthodox, it is also interesting that some of the opposing opinions are still intent on trying to prove him wrong. But to try to make a point that he does not know the future and then attempt to provide insufficient evidence that 'allah knows the future when clearly there is evidence to the contrary, is somewhat interesting in and of itself as well.

From a prophetical standpoint, the future as it may be known is contained perfectly in only one place. The best place to understand how the future will play itself out can be found in only one place. The two places have one thing in common, that the plan of the future of the world rests in the mind of only one entity, the LORD Almighty God of Israel. The proof of this is found on the east end of the Mediterranean Sea, in a little place currently called Israel, a name that rankles the minds and stirs the blood of all who bring her to mind. Now, why is that?

Let us start with a little history, that of the land of Egypt. Why are there no pharaohs in Egypt today? It is because they messed with Israel and paid dearly for it.

Fast forward: after the fall of the Turkish Ottoman Empire, arguably one of the last best places to understand the modern implications of Islam in the old context, there was the struggle to keep the trans-Jordan/'Palestinian' region Islamic. The confrontations of the 1920's and the uprising of 1936 under the guidance of the mufti's opposition to the Zionist immigrations lead to anal-out alliance between the mufti-led attacks on the Jewish population in concert with the German SS. What happened to them that did so dastardly against the children of Israel? The burned out bunker in Berlin in May, 1945 is a little clue.

The end of the world war left uncounted thousands of thousands Jewish people of the Diaspora without out a safe place to call home. Fast forward to May, 1948, and finally they were able to 'return' home. Who knew? There is only one place to answer that question; and only one place that fits that answer: The Almighty God of Israel. One need only look at the great frustration of so many fundamentalist Muslims, starting with the president of Iran to the members of the Muslim Brotherhood and their counterparts in Hamas and Hizbollah to realize the truth of the matter: Israel is in place for reasons that humanist rationale cannot explain.

Now, we see in the resurgence of Islam in the former Caliphate of Turkey, the unrest in so many Muslim dominated national entities and the seemingly unstoppable spread of Islam in so many other places, what conclusion might one draw? A clue: the answer is not where one of a modernist rationalization might think. Clue part two: Libya figures prominently in Biblical prophecy.

Now, a small minority of Biblical forward-thinking individuals are convinced that all things are going according to a plan that will eventually prove out the basis of Christianity, that Jesus Christ is LORD. But what does that mean in the global scheme of things? While the details of each moment play themselves out in plain sight of an unknowing world population, all things are moving to an inevitable conclusion, a conclusion too many are not going to like. In fact, if anyone had a clue, it should scare the hell out of them. But as can be plainly seen, only a few understand what is happening at this moment and what will be happening next. Another clue: it is all written down for any who would study it, in the Hebrew Holy Scriptures.

Now the Hebrew Holy Scriptures are not for divining a potential future, but are to be studied to realize when and how each fulfillment has happened according to the WORD of the LORD. The reinstatement of Israel as a national entity is just one of that type of fulfillment. Now if, as it has been supposed by any of the Muslim belief there was an omniscient knowledge that such was going to happen against all belief to those who opposed the rebirth of Israel, how then was it not stopped? Another clue: it could not be stopped.

So, does the western world and modernist progressive societal institutions think that they can solve the world's problems by the attempt to 'peacefully' divide or eliminate Israel, or worse; will they capitulate and allow the enemies of Israel to overrun that land in order to take the world into a domination of the new Caliphate? In brief, the projections are not likely to be the first, and more than likely to be the second. There is that part of the Hebrew Holy Bible that points to a brief moment where the world is forced to submit to a domination of the likes of which are ascribed to in the Quran; but more importantly, more fully and correctly described in the Hebrew Holy Bible.

So, what does that mean to anyone who has understanding and desires to attain to knowledge of the LORD in faith that would transcend all that will be happening? The final clue: believe in the LORD Jesus Christ, in His death and resurrection for the remission of sins (yours, mine, ours), giving life to whosoever will believe Jesus Christ IS Who He says He is; and is the LORD of salvation to all who turn to Him for the truth of His Grace and Mercy. Then it will not matter that Islam will seem for a while to gain the upper hand: all things will work together for good for those that love Almighty God the Father through Jesus Christ the LORD and His Holy Spirit. There is assurance in knowing that future and paying jizyaa is not part of it!

So, on the other hand, when Libya falls to the brotherhood, along with Syria and Iran, and the others, and the people of the north decide to implement the doctrine of protection to counter the defensive activities of Israel, know this: Israel has been, is and will always be the 'apple' of Almighty God's eye. Be careful what you pray for; for if it does not align with the will of Almighty God, you will not be likely to understand why it did not go according to the plans of men that could not possibly know the future.
