Arab Spring Part 2 and The Third Intifada

This should have been posted last month, but personal events have kept me away from the site. I’ve touched upon the topics of this blog post in parts of other postings over the past few months. However, I wanted to put it all here so that it isn’t so scattered about the various posts on this site. I had an original draft of this post, but had to revise it a number of times due to changes occurring in the process of composing this piece. I would like to expand upon things that I haven’t mentioned previously and how this all ties into the Trump administration’s policies on the middle east. There may be a status quo now, but that’s all going to change in the near future.

The Middle East, as most know, is in a state of chaos save for a few exceptions. Syria continues to suffer through a devastating civil war, the Iran deal is on the verge of collapse, oil prices are about to sky rocket and ISIS’ defeat is at risk of postponement due to the miscalculations of the Trump administration and the western world. If you want to look to a sole instigator of problems in the region (besides the obvious saber rattlers in the US and Israel), the attention should turn to the corrupt nation of Saudi Arabia.

Under its new king to be, the prince Mohammed bin Salman, Saudi Arabia has undergone an extensive PR blitz to rally for a war against Iran and to improve its own image abroad in spite of its numerous scandals (financing 9/11 attackers, murdering gay people and arbitrarily arresting citizens among many, many others). Such moves are designed to rally the world in its favor of the conflict and against that of its enemies in a proxy war of Shiite and Sunni Muslims. Such a battle between two Middle Eastern super powers would cause world war 3, but as warned in an earlier post this year, no war is coming for the foreseeable future. Conditions are not ripe in terms of alignment of interests and there’s too much opposition to such a war at this time. What will result in this rallying for war will be a counter revolution that will end up blowing up in Saudi Arabia’s face in the near future.

While war will not happen (in spite of more dangerous escalations in Syria and Yemen), what does come about is creating anger in the Arab street over Saudi Arabia’s unpopular actions and policies. Those who believe that important domestic issues and the Palestinian cause can be sidelined to unite for war against Iran are deluding themselves. As a result of the anger, uprisings begin in Egypt and Jordan this summer. They quickly spread to Lebanon, Qatar, the UAE and ultimately land on Salman’s doorsteps in Saudi Arabia. When such violent uprising proves to be unstoppable without a strategic change, it forces decisions in Middle Eastern governments to back off the selling out of the Palestinian cause that has been eagerly laid out by Trump officials and the end of fostering their new found ties to the Israeli government. These uprisings also see major victories for the Iranian government that came to them (undeservedly, mind you) because of arrogance from the United States and not due to some moral victory of their own.

While the tensions heat up in most of the Arab world this summer, the real boiling point of conflict occurs in the Palestinian territories. Already, the Right to Return march has attracted large amounts of attention and an extremely high death count as a result of the world’s complicity to the illegal occupation by the Israeli government. A Third Intifada is inevitable at this point, there’s no other way around it. No two state solution is coming and the despair is being seen in the streets Gaza and the West Bank. The embassy move from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem this month serves as the spark that lights up the territories (and it will, despite protestations to the contrary) when a combination of a collective sense of having nothing to lose, further Israeli military aggression and weak Palestinian leadership ignite a flame in the Palestinian public that will not go out.

A new conflict between Israeli and Palestinian forces sees massive casualties, but noticeably large casualties in Israel. It will rise due to accompanying attacks from Hezbollah in Libya and air strikes from Russia against Israeli military facilities. This comes in retaliation to attempts by Netanyahu to oust Assad from power and his provocations of war with Iran in the region. The US is forced out of the conflict early on in fear of needing a military draft to adequately send troops to fight in the conflict. Such moves will completely destabilize the whole region, but serve to resolve the long standing conflict of Sunni vs Shiite once and for all.

In the ashes of this final intifada, many changes will emerge throughout the entire Middle East. The crown prince of Saudi Arabia is thrown out due to his major policy failures. The Iranian government is exhausted of its funds, leaving it vulnerable to crippling sanctions imposed once again by the United States. Israel is badly damaged in both its military capacity and its public relations empowering the BDS movement even further to force changes on them that they would normally never agree to. Hamas is destroyed, seeing the Palestinian Authority retake the embattled Gaza strip. Mahmoud Abbas passes away from the stress of another intifada officially killing the two state solution when no acceptable leadership is allowed to step forward to replace it. The wake of this series of conflicts is a region with less US influence than before and some semblance of peace coming into the next decade. It means the likely end of the Saudi monarchy and the end of Israel as a Jewish state. It will also be a net positive as I stated years earlier, the region begins its own renaissance of political thought and artistic achievement that will surpass an increasingly oppressive western world. Most won’t like the results on the ground to get to this point, but there is no other way around the inevitable. If you are living in the region, hang on for the ride. It will be bumpy, but better for everyone when all is said and done.


Dreams and Predictions for May 2018


I feel bad that I didn’t post many predictions for April. There have been things in my personal life that I’ve had to attend to and I’ve also been discouraged by Google’s continuous repression of our viewership numbers. Karma will get them soon enough, mark my words. In the meantime, here’s a prediction to share. Be on the lookout for long overdue blog posts as well.

1) Donald Trump is likely to be announced as a Nobel peace prize winner. He won’t ever make it to the ceremony as his dismantling of the Iran deal, coupled with outrage from members of the board, sees the award pulled before it is issued. This infuriates Trump and sees a long Twitter meltdown occur as a result.

5/5 ETA: Happy Cinco de Mayo. I got this message from a dream and thought it was worth sharing.

2) I had a dream of an African immigrant from Australia talking about the police state in the United States and how she was fortunate enough to avoid it. She told me the story of a neighbor of hers whose husband was a cop and how he was harassing her in a similar way that black people in the United States were harassed. It got so bad that she conjured a spell from who she described as “the ancestors” and it caused the cop to suffer a life of misery and decay leading to homelessness and death. She believed that although she couldn’t cast this kind of spell on a large scale basis, she believed this magic from her African ancestors was key to dismantling the police state in the US. I don’t know how credible this message is, but I had asked in prayer for a sign the night before and this seems to be it (there might be more and I’ll post about it here if there is). Hope this message gets to its intended audience. It’s very much needed at this time.

5/12 ETA: I’ve been away for a number of days, but I’m back now. I won’t be as active for a while and I’ll explain why in my second blog post for the month. In the meantime, here’s another prediction to share with you all.

3) The issue of homelessness and poverty will be another dividing factor between corrupt Democrats and their naive base heading into the fall election. The base will want to see action taken while the Clintonites will see this as a communist plot. This will see problems for Democrats heading into the fall leading into a crisis for the 2010 presidential election.

The Threats of One Pass on to Another

I was originally going to add this as a blurb in my predictions post for the month, but decided it needed its own post instead.

Paul Ryan decided to do the admirable thing for his family and step down as House speaker before he faced assassination this fall. This, of course, will spare his life and push another member of congress into his unenviable position where the threats to life will face them instead. Already one candidate, Steve Scalice, faced an assassination attempt last year and will likely not run as a result. Instead, Kevin McCarthy, the current house majority leader, will likely take Ryan’s spot and his place in facing serious assassination threats. If he does end up taking the job, then he will face assassination around the time that Trump will in 2019 (I will elaborate on this in my 2019 predictions post next year). The danger may have subsided for one, but it will continue to face whoever holds this office so long as congress remains wicked in defiance of the will of the American people. Until that changes, the dangers will continue unabated. Congress could remedy this, the question is will they? The choice is entirely up them (if the deep state doesn’t get to them first).

Dreams and Predictions for April 2018

I have two, potentially three blog posts in the works for this month. Hopefully I’ll be able to find the time to cover everything that needs to be said. In the meantime, here’s a prediction to share.

1) Saudi Arabia may think its recent PR blitz will fool people, but it will not. The truth about the horrors and oppressions are going to come to light in the near future. When they do, public opinion will never be the same again.

4/8 ETA: In case people were curious….

2) Trump’s trade war with China has nothing to do with economics and everything to do with geopolitical battle. Seeing them as North Korea’s main benefactor, the point of these tariff escalations is to weaken China to the point of domestic unrest. Under such a scenario, it would see an overthrow of the communist government and leave Kim Jong Un vulnerable to a military takeover. Whether this latest strategy works remains to be seen, but considering I’ve seen predictions for both the toppling of China’s government and Un’s this year, it’s possible that it does; with a very high body count as a result.

4/30 ETA: The other two blog posts won’t be ready for this month, so they will have to wait until May. In the meantime, here’s some more predictions.

3) Marvel Studios may be riding on a high now, but they will see a significant fall at the start of the next decade. Comic book fatigue and scandals emanating out of the leadership will see a sharp fall that will lead to significant financial problems for both the studio and Hollywood itself by the middle of the next decade.

4) A high profile pedophile will be outed and criminally prosecuted in the near future. This person has a lot of power and it will be a shock to many when their identity is revealed.

Release the Documentary

I’ve mentioned my predictions on the Israeli/Palestinian conflict before, but this blog has to do with Israeli influence in US and world politics. As the mainstream media is turning over every rock looking for Russian influence, the foreign power with the most influence is engaging in censorship right under their noses. From the unconstitutional assaults on the surging BDS movement to the attempts to eliminate human rights ordinances in local city councils, the attacks on our collective free speech in this way should be met with outrage. Instead, much of this is swept under the rug and not discussed very openly. That’s about to change and a documentary facing calls for censorship will do just the trick.

The cover photo of this blog refers to an article detailing attempts to censor a documentary exposing Israel’s influence on US politics (part of why PBS should stop taking government funds). Much like with the condemnation from lawmakers over a famous Vietnam documentary exposing lies in US foreign policy talking points, the anger by US lawmakers over this documentary is leading to Mccarthyite like retaliation. Qatar, under pressure due to wanting a Saudi led bombing campaign to cease and to avoid being labeled under the FARA act as a foreign agent, is caving into pressure to censor this critical expose on AIPAC and other organizations. This is morally unacceptable. To allow this to happen to information that is necessary for the public to know about is an assault on our constitutional rights worse than gun control.

As polls are skewed in one side’s favor due to a lack of critical information, such attempts to shut out critical information must be combatted at every turn. As such, the Israel Lobby documentary must air freely on Al Jazeera. If it does not, it will be leaked online as is without any changes made. Julian Assange already has his eyes on it and it will be put on the Wikileaks server within the next two months if action isn’t taken soon. It’s better to do it the legal way than allow it to be put out there as a leak that sees criminal prosecution take place. This documentary (and subsequent ones like it) will change public opinion on the Israeli Palestinian conflict when it finally sees the light of day. No matter how much a foreign power might try to stop it, the truth always has a way of revealing itself; whether they like it or not.

Dreams and Predictions for March 2018

I haven’t had a lot of visions lately, but I have had a lot of prediction fulfillments. I’ll have to get to that another time. In the meantime, here’s a prediction to share and hopefully more will come in the next few days or so.

1) There’s some trouble in the air as crime will begin to rise nationwide. It will start as a trickle and then explode by years end. It will be especially noticeable by the time 2019 rolls around.

3/14 ETA: I have been having some very vivid dreams lately, but unfortunately they pertain to personal details and not prophecy. However, I do have another prediction to share and hopefully there will be more before the end of the month.

2) The summer will be significantly cooler than record, which some will suggest means global warming isn’t happening. It is, but the news surrounding it will eventually see these words echoed by Trump.

3/16 ETA: Finally, I’ve been having dream based predictions again. Here’s one to share.

3) Rapper Eminem will have a downfall in the next few months. The cause will likely be due to drug addiction. The end result will not be pleasant.

3/18 ETA: Here is another dream based prediction.

4) There will be another stage collapse at a festival or concert this summer due to bad weather. Not sure where or when, but it will have some fatalities and a lot of injuries.

3/19 ETA: This was from a dream I had last night, though it should be kind of an obvious prediction.

5) Jared Kushner is going to go to jail. I don’t know when it will occur, but it will happen after a prosecution over shady dealings in his real estate business like this one. Trump won’t stand with him or pardon him when this happens.

3/20 ETA: Another dream based prediction. It seems my prescience is returning.

6) Portions of the investigation against the Trump administration’s supposed collusion with Russia will leak to a Trump friendly source like TMZ or the National Enquirer. This will work to discredit Mueller’s probe and will be part of the reason why it won’t lead to Trump’s ouster.

3/6 ETA: I touched upon this briefly in the 2018 predictions, but just to spell it out in the open.

7) The newly formed March For Our Lives and Black Lives Matter will clash in the near future. The consequences will be felt in the effectiveness of the gun control movement (it will fail) and for chances for the Democrats to retake the House and the Senate in the fall.

3/30 ETA: I thought I could wait until April to write about this as I wanted to go into more detail in a bigger blog post. However, due to the recent situation on the ground in the Gaza Strip, I need to make this statement now and then I’ll expand upon in sometime in the beginning of the new month.

8) The recent March of Return taking place in the Gaza Strip will lead to the start of a third intifada by the time the summer begins. It will see Netanyahu’s permanent ouster as Prime Minister, Abbas’ death, the dissolution of the Palestinian Authority and the permanent end of the two state solution.

Is It Worth the Price?

This may be a blog post that ruffles a lot of feathers, but it still needs to be said. In the wake of yet another mass shooting on US soil, the moment is leading to more calls for gun control. It’s not as if it hasn’t taken place. States already have it on the books on the heels of mass anger from previous shootings at Columbine and Sandy Hook. What is causing the current tension is that red states resist the calls. This gets to an underlying fissure in American society and it’s why politicians are reluctant to rock the apple cart.

Gun control is not a fool proof form of eliminating violence. It is largely racially enforced and doesn’t target the people who are the most likely to commit mass shootings (white people). It makes revolution impossible to achieve. It fails to address the mental health crisis in this country. Also important to note in this particular shooting is the FBI’s failure to stop the shooter (possibly purposefully). Most importantly, it gets to the heart of our system of inequality where the rich protect themselves with bodyguards and the police while the poor are left largely defenseless in this society. Until we address these underlying tensions and those that will attain weapons illegally, this is nothing more than an attempt to disempower the masses by the powers that be.

The reason the powers that be keep pushing gun control is obvious. The reason they have failed despite billions in spending is less obvious. The NRA alone isn’t responsible for why the United States doesn’t have sensible gun control. The voting block of the GOP, poor white southerners, has more to do with it than the money spent in elections. These are people with no prospects and no hope for bettering themselves due to a combination of fiscal austerity, racially charged propagandizing and a lack of access to others forms of advancement. As a result, they cling to their guns the way they do to religion (even if one serves to keep them disempowered the way gun control is supposed to for the masses). Take one piece of their pride away and you risk starting an uprising that won’t be so easily put down. It won’t be one that promotes freedom, but rather furthers entrenches a police state that needs to be destroyed.

If the feds continue to drive towards policy of gun confiscation, civil war follows by resistant gun owners. This could lead to the deaths of 36 million people and the further offing of any real justice for the American people. The question in such a scenario is would it be worth it? As sad as it is to say, the answer is it would not. This rebellion would be put down and mass shootings might stop, but at the cost of more lives lost than all previous mass shootings combined. It would also see the further erosion of civil liberties and a more vicious solidification of the police state that needs to be dismantled, not empowered further. If we are truly serious about attaining our freedom, then we must be careful about what path that takes. Going backwards will just further set us away from progress, rather than brining us to a more egalitarian future.

People should be careful about following the road the elite want us to go down. It will end in more tears than anyone can imagine. I am sympathetic to the victims of the Parkland shooting and those before it, but to do what they want would destroy the country in a way that will further enslave us and not free us. What is rebuilt in the ashes is a more authoritarian society than ever before and we’ll only see more suffering in its wake. I hope this anger is channelled towards the powers that be instead. That would bring a true sense of justice for the victims and everyone else in the country.
