When you read the history of Islam, you find that nothing much has changed since the Prophet moved off the scene. The two opposing camps of Islam that immediately arose thereafter, are still slogging it out today. As the article points out, on one side you have Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates and on the other, Qatar and Turkey. And as one brilliant 'specialist' so accurately pointed out (though not in these direct terms): when Islam is divided theologically and politically, it is impossible to resolve the many crises in the Arab/Muslim world.
Obama Administration's Irrelevance: Caught by Surprise and Fuming!
By R.P. BenDedek (10:06 PM 8/26/2014 Beijing time)
Note This is an old article and I have removed some/all links. Nevertheless with title and author an internet search can find a copy. I don't have the time to do that for every link.
America the Bold now America the Old.
Over the last 6 weeks in my column at Magic City Morning Star I have written many articles about the Hamas/Israel war, the most recent of which is found here. The common theme in those articles is I guess, my inability to comprehend the sheer bloody stupidity of the western mind and its deliberate support of terrorists whilst pretending that they are not terrorists.
Today I opened my emails to discover the latest round of articles from the New York Times and one in particular not only caught my attention, but had me laughing. The article was called Arab Nations Strike in Libya, Surprising U.S. By David Kirkpatrick and Eric Schmittaug August 25, 2014
According to the report 'Egypt and the United Arab Emirates have secretly launched airstrikes against Islamist-allied militias battling for control of Tripoli, Libya..' It says that the United States was caught by surprise. Nobody told Washington about the plan and the Obama administration was left on the sidelines.
The article goes on to say that both parties (Egypt and U.A.E.) have denied being involved in Libya but goes on to say that the new Egyptian government and its backers in Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates have launched a campaign in the news media, in politics and diplomacy, and by arming local proxies to roll back what they see as an existential threat to their authority posed by Islamist groups like the Muslim Brotherhood.
American officials are said to be fuming, apparently because neither they nor anyone else approved of the action which may impede their attempts to broker a peaceful resolution in Libya.
But therein lays the problem. When you read the history of Islam, you find that nothing much has changed since the Prophet moved off the scene. The two opposing camps of Islam that immediately arose thereafter, are still slogging it out today. As the article points out, on one side you have Egypt and the United Arab Emirates and on the other, Qatar and Turkey. And as one brilliant 'specialist' so accurately pointed out (though not in these direct terms): when Islam is divided theologically and politically, it is impossible to resolve the many crises in the Arab/Muslim world.
Who provides Hamas with Weapons? Who really wants to throw the Jews into the sea? Who do you think?
The recent Hamas/Israel war has been used as a smoke screen by interested parties to keep our eyes off of what the Muslim fanatics are doing around the world. We have become so PC that it is better to berate Israel than to admit that we never understood the Muslim Mind.
There has been ample warning from political commentators, various media outlets and Ambassadors and the like over the last two years in particular, that President Obama is leading America down the wrong path. This man who did obeisance to the Saudi Monarch and who quotes the Koran like a theology student, has strutted the world stage pretending that he is what previous American presidents were: 'the Leader of the strongest military power on earth', but in everything he has done, he has shown that he is little more than a PC version of a flower loving hippie.
I was surprised when the people of America voted him in as President - I did understand why - but I was shocked when they re-elected him. In everything he does he shows contempt for America and his heart is bleeding so much for the poor people of the world that it has no time to consider let alone understand that America is losing its grip on world politics.
According to this New York Times report, the administration was caught by surprise and is now fuming. So what else is new? Is the administration really in touch with reality? It is still fuming at the appalling treatment it received from the Israeli government when that government dished back what Obama had dished up to it, and is Obama now slowing down arms movements to Israel as a means of showing who pulls the strings? Is he going to do the same with the Egyptian Government or the Saudis?
If the involvement of Egypt and U.A.E. in Libya is properly substantiated, what it shows is what some commentators have already pointed out. Obama is swishing and mincing America's might and reputation into irrelevance. If another leader in another part of the world rises up to lead this world and leads successfully, no one will want a return to the status quo.
Obama and his administration can stamp their feet and throw tantrums all they like over not being consulted about this Libyan affair, but when you are an irrelevance, well ....you are irrelevant. I can't imagine it will be too long before Israel finally cuts the cord too!
Rachel Ehrenfeld's recent comment (Itís Jihad, Stupid) about the Obama Administration in relation to ISIS is a really good indication of how irrelevant Obama, his administration and therefore by extension his country really are in world politics. She wrote:
Judging by the U.S. leadership's surprise, one has to reach the conclusion that the U.S. Administration was either not privy to similar information, or that it decided to ignore it. (acdemocracy.org)
By April 2010 - the date of the last entry, it was quite obvious that there was no more need to keep adding links. I guess Obama was not quite what the Politically Correct Multiculturalist Self-Righteous Ideologues thought he would be. No man/woman should be selected for such a high office based upon an ideology as stupid as Political Correctness.
Stupid people follow stupid ideologies. I guess that is why M/s Ehrenfeld titled her above cited article: "It's Jihad, Stupid". It looks like ideological stupidity will be the death of American power; a country made irrelevant by the single most important man in its history.
If you want to know what the future of America is going to be like, (the reason why gun ownership in the US is so vehemently opposed) then read this. It is about how children in the Middle East are being trained to kill Americans (and everyone else!).

BenDedek originally created the site to publicize his research results into the Chronology of Ancient Israel. Those results were published under the title: 'The King's Calendar: The Secret of Qumran.' Whilst there have been many attempts to solve the chronological riddle of the Bible's synchronisms of reigns of the kings of Israel and Judah and their synchronism with other Ancient Near Eastern Nations, no other research is based on a simple mathematical formula which could, if it is incorrect, be disproved easily. To date, no one has been able to dismiss the mathematical results of this research.

Definition: King's Calendar Chronological Research
The Premise: Between the 5th and 3rd centuries BCE (but continuing down to at least 104 BCE), Sectarian redactors transcribed the legitimate 'solar year' chronological records of Israel and Judah, into an artificial form, with listed years as each comprised of 12 months of 4 weeks of 7 days, or 336 days per year, thus creating a 13th artificial year where 12 solar years existed.
When the Synchronous Chronological Data provided in the Books of Kings and Chronicles for the Divided Kingdom Period are measured in years of 336 days, the synchronisms actually align. [Refer to Appendix 5. to see how it synchronises the Divided Kingdom Period]
