CAIRO – Egypt’s military will retain broad executive powers, help shape the framing of a new constitution and keep its vast financial holdings hidden even after an elected parliament is seated, one of the ruling generals told foreign journalists Wednesday.

Maj. Gen. Mukhtar Mulla sounded at times conciliatory and other times defensive or defiant in a rare two-hour interview that offered the most in-depth look to date at the vision that the Supreme Council of the Armed Forces has for Egypt’s democratic transition. Since they took power upon President Hosni Mubarak’s ouster last February, the reclusive generals typically have announced their plans via state media or an official Facebook page.

“We don’t speak of our work. We let our work speak for us,” Mulla said, explaining the opacity of the council’s inner workings and its financial portfolio.

The latest communique, issued Wednesday, hands executive powers to the military-appointed interim prime minister, Kamal el-Ganzouri, except for command of the armed forces and the judiciary.

The following ad was printed in the Canadian National Post. Most of you (if you’re not living in the US) would be shocked that these things are taught to kids of this age.

…the above audio continues to discuss, according to secular reasoning why / if polygamy is worse than homosexuality.

…and then they apologised for printing the ad! 😦

There is immense pressure (as can be seen from this article “Homosexual agenda can’t make ‘fearless one’ tremble”) from the pro-gay lobby in the US & Canada. This is why an ad like this is not allowed to run unchallenged.


“What sorrow for those who say that evil is good and good is evil, that dark is light and light is dark, that bitter is sweet and sweet is bitter.” – Isaiah 5:20

Fear-mongering? Well, no. Everyone ignores Hitler when he was broadcasting his plans. He was just harmless & crazy … just like Ahmadinejad right?

“Pentagon chief laments Israel’s growing ‘isolation’ from traditional partners like Turkey” – Washington Post

Did the US have no impact on this “growing isolation”? Maybe it depends on the media & spin you’ve been exposed to. Really – check out the history of the “peace process” & see where offers & concessions happened. Check how many concessions the PA, Hamas & Hezbollah made.

Also, an update on future politics in Egypt. Concerns around the elections in Egypt – 60% thus far (at time of this recording) went to Islamist parties. Realistically the hopes for peace would have been in victories for secular parties.

…and insurgency warning in weeks or months ahead in pro-western Jordan. Would the US support Jordan or also ‘assist’ in terms of toppling the government of the only likely peaceful border that Israel has?

“Big Mike’s” Story. Living on the streets & in violent gangs Chicago, even seeing many of his friends killed in the process. Chasing money, fancy cars etc. & eventually found that all these things didn’t bring fulfilment. Now ministering to people, just as broken as he used to be.

Fire School missionary in China. Real existing persecution in China, as also mentioned in the book by Brother Yun. The terrible pain caused by the one-child-policy & the struggle for the Chinese church to even start to counter abortion & infanticide.

Fire School missionary among homeless in Atlanta. How he realised that “following Jesus” meant the end of his live & the start of completely new life in Jesus. Joel carries a big wooden cross around as a tool to witness – which might seem weird & foolish, but it actually draws people to him & it also gets everyone that comes to talk to him right to the topic at hand. Brilliant actually. 🙂

Fire School missionary in Tanzania. Previously suicidal & used to “pretty things & luxury” she made a new life in Africa at age 50.
Fire School missionary in ‘depraved Holland’. The challenges in the culture that are pioneers in legalized same-sex marriage, prostitution, drugs & euthanasia.

Fire School missionary in Kurdistan talks about the countries the gospel took him to & the massive impact the powerful call to the Great Commission had on him – just by a random missionary at a train station.

And Jesus came and said to them, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptising them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you.” – Matthew 28

Quote: “Sexual education classes at NYC public high schools and middle schools might feature some usually unmentioned lessons next year. [Among those lessons are porn and other things we’d rather not repeat in this post.] According to the report, the Department of Education has recommended students learn “everything there is to know about sex” in the new curriculum. The new lessons could make their way into classrooms as soon as this spring, as well as a free condom program at every NYC public school, as sex education is becoming more commonplace in schools — and among younger students. D.C. Public Schools announced last month, in a move that’s the first of its kind in the country, that students in grades 5, 8 and 10 will be administered standardized tests on sexuality, contraception and drug use.” Huffington Post

How many people care about the fate of the unborn? VERY FEW. Audio elaborates. Make sure you see & share the video at the bottom.

Pictures speak louder than words in this case… and sometimes more shocking pictures are necessary to wake us up, but these are mild.

“180” The full Interview with Alicia …and how this interview was a ‘strange coincidence’ in her life.

Miracle “dreams and visions” accounts mentioned in the audio – “the old man & the books”.

Christian leaders in Iran are grateful to find new converts often arriving convinced of their new faith already. How did they come to faith? Yes, through dreams and visions. Unlikely? Well, the God of Israel tends to operate in scenarios where the likelihood of success by natural means is very low. Also…

“And it shall come to pass afterward, that I will pour out my Spirit on all flesh; your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, your old men shall dream dreams, and your young men shall see visions.” Joel 2:28
