Hour before the Dawn

[ Ed. note – Another poem by Palestinian poet Nahida Izzat. Nahida is a Muslim. As I read her poem, however, it brings to mind for me, strangely perhaps, the following spoken by Jesus after the resurrection: “And lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.” The words are from the very last line, in the final verse, in the final chapter, of the Gospel of Matthew.

Indeed, we seem to be fast approaching the end of an age. As Nahida puts it, “Earth is throbbing/The avalanche is fast approaching.” The poem also contains suggestions of a soul preparing to make the journey from life into the afterlife: “Raise your gaze up to the sky/Note the signs to your dwelling place.” Yet worth remembering is that in the post-apocalyptic age to come, heaven and earth will merge. This is the case in Christian theology, at any rate, and I suspect Islam probably has its parallel.

In any event, when I read poetry like this I tend to become convinced that it is the Palestinians (and certainly not the Khazars!!! ) who are the true descendants of the earliest followers of Jesus. Christians should consider that we potentially have far more in common with Muslims than we do with Jews. ]

 

Hour before the Dawn

* * *

Earth is throbbing in curious anticipation

The avalanche is fast approaching

People dazed in deep sleep

Some eyes are peeled as if they know

* * *
* * *

Time to retreat, weary soul

Time to retreat

Rest in a niche where Light descends

Hand it all over to the One Supreme

Carve a hole in your heart, braid your loved ones in

One by one

* * *

* * *

O soul

Put your temporary house in order

Clean up the mess before the storm

Pluck up the weeds and plow the soil

Scatter the seeds for those to come

Give it back better than you received

Stunning… Atrociously beautiful

Humbly put your head down and pray

A modest sign of ample gratitude

* * *

* * *

Raise your gaze up to the sky

Note the signs to your dwelling place

Adorn the garden of your home eternal

Let love flow free, let kindness prevail

Follow your soul, she knows the way

Let her guide you to your heavenly abode

Beneath the Throne of a Gracious Lord

Gaze in amazement at the glorious sight

Wither to nothingness before the Majesty

Splendour no eye had ever seen

Sheikh Imran Hosein Discusses Gog, Magog and the End of History

A new video uploaded by Sheikh Imran Hosein. As the Sheikh points out, Christianity and Islam concur with each other on “the release of Gog and Magog upon the world,” as he refers to it. See my article, if you’ve not yet read it,  Gog, Magog and Skunkwater. Below is a brief excerpt:

Now the genealogy of Japheth comes out of the Book of Genesis, but let’s return—shall we?—to Book of Ezekiel and Gog and Magog. What the two words, Gog and Magog, could in essence be referring to—again keeping in mind the many names…Japheth, Gomer, Magog, Ashkenaz, etc.—is in essence a nation or tribe of people. Well, what do we know about this tribe? Not much, other than that they come from the north—but here again, that geographic reference is strongly emphasized by the prophet. The following comes from Ezekiel 39:2:

I will turn you around and drag you along. I will bring you from the far north and send you against the mountains of Israel.

Well, it can’t be much clearer than that, can it? Gog and Magog come from the far north.

Now Christian Zionists have traditionally viewed this as meaning Russia. That view was of course popular during the Cold War, especially with such noted Christian Zionist “thinkers” as Hal Lindsey—Russia and Red China, along with all the other evil hordes from the north and east, posed the greatest threat to Israel, and when the Gog/Magog invasion finally comes, and the Battle of Armageddon is finally fought, those surely are the forces that would be descending upon the poor, defenseless little Jewish state. This has been the thinking of Christian Zionists ever since the mid twentieth century.

But most Christian Zionists, I would dare say, have never heard of the Khazar Kingdom, or if they have, they’ve probably bought into the hasbara talking point that the Khazar ancestry of Ashkenazi Jews has been “debunked” or “discredited.” Au contraire. It has not. The works of Shlomo Sand, Arthur Koestler, and others who’ve researched the Khazar history have stood the test of time. Wikipedia has an article attempting to explode the “myth” and relegating it to “Internet anti-Semitic websites,” but as has been documented recently (here, here, and here), Wikipedia has become little more than an Israeli propaganda outlet—and the fact remains: the Khazar empire existed—it underwent a mass conversion to Judaism in the eighth or ninth century—and after the kingdom’s fall in the eleventh century many of these people migrated into eastern Europe.

In short, there has been an invasion of Israel, and it has come from the far north. It kinda boils down to who you gonna believe—Wikipedia or the prophet Ezekiel?

War by November 4, Says Imran Hosein

Usually when somebody predicts the end of the world by such-and-such date, I don’t pay it any heed. However, Imran Hosein is a man who has made a lifetime study of Islamic eschatology, and whatever your views on that subject may be, I feel compelled to mention that I’ve run a few of Sheikh Hosein’s videos before and found his analyses on world affairs pretty solid. So take it for whatever it’s worth: global war will begin by no later than November 4, 2016. Why the date in November has to do with the US presidential election. In Hosein’s words,

“They cannot take a chance that Donald Trump will become president. They cannot take that chance. Because Donald Trump says, ‘It makes no sense for us to have this antagonistic relationship with Russia.’”

If you would like to construe that as a ringing endorsement of Trump, I guess you’re free to do so, and maybe in some respects it is. But Sheikh Hosein isn’t the only one with such a view of Trump. Consider the remarks of Mark Dankof as quoted in a recent article at Veterans Today:

OK, I’m going to vote for him as the only alternative to the unthinkable election of the Whore of Babylon in November. I agree with Stephen Lendman that Clinton’s election is the best guarantee of World War III. But a Trump Presidency is not a panacea for what ails us. It could end in disaster if he’s elected. Time tells.

By the way, if you follow Sheikh Hosein’s talk all the way to the end, you will see he also predicts that in the upcoming war NATO will be destroyed  and that Israel will emerge as the dominant world power. Interestingly, the Book of Revelation offers a similar view. The following is an excerpt from an article I wrote in November of 2011, almost five years ago:

Part 7

The Final Destruction of YAM

It comes in chapter 18—YAM’s (America’s) final downfall and destruction. “After this,” says John, “I saw another angel coming down from heaven.” [18:1] He then gives us the angel’s words:

Fallen! Fallen is Babylon the Great. She has become a home for demons and a haunt for every evil spirit, a haunt for every unclean and detestable bird. For all the nations have drunk the maddening wine of her adulteries. The kings of the earth committed adultery with her, and the merchants of the earth grew rich from her excessive luxuries. [18:2-3]

As may be expected, the merchants and kings are quite distraught by this turn of events:

When the kings of the earth who committed adultery with her and shared her luxury see the smoke of her burning, they will weep and mourn over her. Terrified at her torment, they will stand far off and cry: Woe! Woe O great city, O Babylon, city of power! In one hour your doom has come. [18:9-10]

In one hour? So is YAM destroyed in a nuclear war? We don’t know. John doesn’t say, and of course such things as nuclear bombs were beyond his comprehension. What he does tell us is this:

Then a mighty angel picked up a boulder the size of a millstone and threw it into the sea, and said: “With such violence the great city of Babylon will be thrown down, never to be found again.” [18:21]

Maybe it’s an earthquake. All we know for sure is that at three separate points [18:10, 17, 19] the text emphasizes the destruction occurs in “one hour.” In any case, the Apocalypse has reached a major turning point: one beast has fallen; the other remains standing.

The other beast that “remains standing” is Israel. Interestingly, it would seem that Islamic and Christian eschatology both have similar views, at least on the downfall of America and the emergence of Israel as the global hegemon. There’s more to the story, though. Maybe at some point I’ll repost the entire article. Or if you like you can check out one of Hosein’s other videos or one of his books. There is probably quite a bit of agreement, if you look closely enough, between the two religions and their respective prophecies.
