"Chinese New Year and Horror in South Africa" By John Little.

Chinese New Year and Horror in South Africa

Well, it’s that time of year again where the Chinese get to celebrate a new year, and I get dragged off to visit the in-laws. I hate traveling, but I like my in-laws. So, it’s always a time of mixed emotion.
It also means that I get my weekly articles out rather late.
The other thing that’s happening, is genocide in South Africa. It has been going on for a while, but the tempo is starting to increase. We should all be horrified by this and praying for our brothers and sisters who are about to suffer greatly.
Please remember that our time of suffering is coming.

Chinese New Year and Horror in South Africa

[NOTE: Lord willing, The ShockCast will be available on Monday. – JL]
—————
It is the Year of the Dog, and everyone who is Chinese, knows what ‘year’ they were born under. For instance, Mrs. Little is a rooster, and I’ve been told that I’m a goat.
It kinda gives a bit more to the saying, “You old goat!”
The problem that I have with Chinese New Year, is having to travel. I HATE traveling. With a surprising amount of passion. Surprising, I should say, to everyone else but me.
Why do people feel the need to move about, from place to place?
I used to think of culture as fascinating, until I realized that everyone is distressingly the same, and that culture is just the packet of lies that we share with each other, to convince ourselves that we are better than we really are. Everyone thinks that their culture is the best, that they are in some way superior to someone else. There are times when that attitude is cute, but generally it’s just an invitation to mass murder and genocide. But, I don’t want to talk about that, quite yet.
The thing that I find interesting about Chinese New Year is that it is a lot like something else that you’ve probably read about. In fact, I’ll drop a few hints:
You must…
…do lots of cleaning before the holiday.
…observe in the spring.
…put red on the door posts and lintel.
…gather your family indoors and eat lamb.
…do all the above or a monster will kill you.
And, this celebration marks the beginning of the year.
If all of that reminds you of Passover, well done. And, if you are wondering if there’s a connection, I’m afraid that no one knows. In fact, we don’t actually know where this celebration of Chinese New Year comes from.
The reason for Chinese New Year was never written down by those who started it, and it began so long ago, that no one knows where it came from.
How long ago?
Thousands of years.
Hmmmm… thousands of years?
It would be highly ironic if China turned out to be a group of Israelis that got lost following Moses out into the desert. But, I’m afraid that this is a line of thought that is far too fanciful. But, when we walked into my brother-in-law’s apartment, in Chiayi, Thursday night, he proudly proclaimed that we could have lamb, if we wanted it.
Whatever the connection there might have been between Passover and Chinese New Year, that connection has long since died of old age. What we have today is unrelentingly pagan.
However, there is one silver lining to this day of family gathering and temple worship. Christians get to go to church, which my in-laws did.
Whenever there’s a pagan holiday, it’s always a good time to go to church. I’m sure that there are many who feel a bit horrified by this idea, but going to church is always a good idea.
I also added to my list of stories to tell, but I shall save those for later, because there is a story of horror that is gathering strength. And, we aren’t paying attention.

Israel Launches Tank And Airstrikes Against Hamas In Gaza Strip As Threat Of Massive War Looms

The Israeli military has carried out a number of strikes against Palestinian positions overnight in the Gaza Strip. They came in response to a bomb attack on Saturday which wounded four Israeli soldiers.

EDITOR'S NOTE: Israel, the Palestinians and Iran by proxy stand on the edge of all out war as another intifada threatens to rear its ugly head. The Jerusalem Post says 'while the Gaza Strip is a tinderbox waiting to explode, the growing Iranian entrenchment in Syria and Lebanon poses the biggest risk for Israel. Unlike Hamas in Gaza, the Iranian war machine can wreak immeasurable damage on the Jewish State.'
Two Palestinians were killed by Israeli tank fire in Gaza. The Israeli air force also claimed to have destroyed a number of sites linked to Hamas. It is one of the most serious escalations in violence since Israel and Hamas fought a war in 2014.
The Israeli army said it hit 18 Hamas military targets from Saturday night through to Sunday, including "weapons manufacturing infrastructure" and a tunnel being dug by militants. It also targeted two observation posts.
Palestinian officials said three Hamas training camps and one belonging to a smaller group had been struck.

Hamas's military wing, the Izzedine al-Qassam Brigades, claimed that it had used anti-aircraft missiles against Israeli jets flying over the coastal territory.

On Saturday two Palestinian teenagers were also killed by Israeli tank fire east of Rafah. The pair were in a group approaching the border in "a suspicious manner", Israel's army said.
It came after four Israel Defense Forces (IDF) soldiers were injured, two seriously, in an explosion on Saturday afternoon east of the town of Khan Younis.
The army said the explosive device had been planted during a demonstration there on Friday and was attached to a flag which the troops attempted to remove. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, who is attending a security conference in Munich, Germany, said: "The incident on the Gaza border is very serious. We will respond appropriately." source

Iran Unveils Series Of Nuclear-Capable Ballistic Missiles And Threatens To Strike Israel Over Syria Attack!

Iran Unveils Series Of Nuclear-Capable Ballistic Missiles And Threatens To Strike Israel Over Syria Attack

by Geoffrey Grider

Iran unveiled a series of new homemade nuclear-capable ballistic missiles during military parades held over the weekend, a move that experts view as a bid to bolster the hardline ruling regime as dissidents continue efforts to stir protest.

On the heels of an encounter between an Iranian drone and Israeli forces, Iranian leaders showcased their ballistic missile capabilities, which includes a nuclear-capable medium-range missile that appears to share similarities with North Korean technology, according to experts.
The nuclear-capable missile can strike Israel even when fired from Iranian territory, raising concerns about an impending conflict between Tehran and the Jewish state that could further inflame the region.
Iranian military leaders bragged the ballistic missile "can be launched from mobile platforms or silos in different positions and can escape missile defense shields due to their radar-evading capability," according to reports in Iran's state-controlled media.
The latest technology could further inflame tensions between Israel and Iran, which funds and controls terror organizations operating along Israel's border. Concerns that this nuclear-capable technology could be shared by Iran with its terrorist proxies are fueling longstanding concerns among the Israelis that an attack is imminent.
As Iranian dissidents continue to protest over the country's ailing economy, the ruling regime continues to invest millions of dollars it received as part of the landmark nuclear deal with the United States on its military technology, specifically ballistic missiles, which are subject to a ban under international statutes.
However, Iran has not only continued this work but also invested heavily in it since receiving the cash windfalls from the nuclear deal. Conservative estimates from open sources indicate the Iranian regime has spent at least $16 billion in recent years on its military buildup and rogue operations in Syria, as well as other countries.
"Thirty-nine years in, the Islamic Revolution has little to show for its decades in power other than growing the country's asymmetric military capabilities in order to continue their export of the revolution," Behnam Ben Taleblu, an Iran expert with the Foundation for Defense of Democracies, told the Washington Free Beacon. "The Islamic Republic has considerably grown the country's missile and rocket arsenal, both through production and procurement."
The two missiles featured over the weekend by Iran include the Ghadr, a medium-range ballistic missile that was modified and upgraded by the Islamic Republic
"The Ghadr can strike Israel when fired from Iranian territory, and in March 2016, was flight-tested while bearing genocidal slogans against the state of Israel," according to Ben Taleblu, who has researched Iranian missile procurement.

Iranian military leaders also rolled out a rocket called the Fajr-5, which is becoming a new favorite of Iranian-backed terror proxy groups operating against Israel.

"The Fajr-5 is an Iranian rocket that has been proliferated to anti-Israel groups like Hamas and Hezbollah. It can travel up to 75 km, and is therefore a long-range artillery rocket. It uses solid fuel for propulsion," Ben Taleblu explained. "Both the Qadr missile and Fajr rocket represents Iran's commitment to developing stand-off weaponry that it uses for purposes of deterrence and coercion."
The new weaponry could fuel ongoing efforts by Congress to crackdown on Iran's continued proliferation of ballistic missile technology, a large part of which has been incubated by the North Korean regime, which continues to have a technology-sharing agreement with Tehran.
Iran already has the region's largest arsenal of ballistic missiles and is seeking to continue building this technology.
The Trump administration has said that any effort to fix the nuclear deal with Iran must focus on constricting the regime's access to ballistic missile technology. source

Putin Demands Israel Stop Strikes On Syria, But Netanyahu Says Israel Will Defend Itself Against All Enemies!!

Putin Demands Israel Stop Strikes On Syria, But Netanyahu Says Israel Will Defend Itself Against All Enemies

by Geoffrey Grider

russia-putin-warns-israel-netanyahu-stop-syria-airstrikes-iran

Vladimir Putin warned Benjamin Netanyahu to back off from military strikes in Syria after an Israeli warplane was shot down in the region on Saturday.

"I will break also the bar of Damascus, and cut off the inhabitant from the plain of Aven, and him that holdeth the sceptre from the house of Eden: and the people of Syria shall go into captivity unto Kir, saith the LORD." Amos 1:5 (KJV)
EDITOR'S NOTE: Russian leader Putin fired up the hotline over the weekend and ordered Israeli PM Netanyahu to immediately stop all airstrikes on targets in Syria. But Netanyahu replied that Israel would continue defend itself against all enemies. The United States weighed in with full support of Israel's position being offered. Iran is instigating, Russia is posturing, and Israel is defending. And the prophecy clock continues to tick....
The Russian President told Netanyahu in a phone call on Saturday evening to avoid a course of action that could have 'dangerous consequences for the region'.
At the time Israel had just completed a second round of bombardments against Syrian forces and what it says were Iranian installations in the country and was considering further strikes in retaliation for the loss of its jet, Haaretz reports.
But Putin, who has spent years propping up the Assad regime in the hopes of staving off American interference, put a swift end to the confrontation, it is reported.
The exchange of fire began after Israel accused Iran of flying a drone into its territory, a claim which Iran later denied. That prompted Israel jets to strike a region in Syria that Iranian forces are known to occupy, with one being shot down as it returned to Israel. Both pilots escaped, but one was badly injured.

It marked the first time an Israeli jet has been lost in combat since 1982.

Following the loss of the jet, Israel said it carried out strikes that destroyed 12 military sites, including four allegedly occupied by Iranian forces.
Netanyahu acknowledged his call with Putin on Saturday evening, saying he had told him of Israel's intention to continue defending itself against any aggression and to prevent Iran from establishing a presence 'in Syria or anywhere else.'
Russia's foreign ministry said it was 'absolutely unacceptable to create threats to the lives and security of Russian servicemen.' Some of the targets struck by the Israeli bombardments are close to where Russian personnel are serving

Netanyahu was keen to trumpet the success of the air raids during a Sunday morning cabinet meeting, but made no mention of further strikes.

'We inflicted on Saturday a heavy blow to Iranian and Syrian forces,' he said. 'We made clear to everyone that our rules of engagement will not change in any way. We will continue to harm anyone who tries to harm us. This was our policy and this will remain our policy.'
Other Israeli ministers spoke of refusing to accept Iran entrenching itself militarily in Syria, as Netanyahu has said repeatedly. Tehran denies it is doing so. Russia stressed the need to 'avoid any measure that could lead to a dangerous escalation'.

United Nations Secretary General Antonio Guterres called for an immediate de-escalation.

Netanyahu spoke with both Russian President Vladimir Putin and US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson after Saturday's confrontation. Washington backed Israel and blamed Iran for the escalation.
Tillerson on Sunday begins a Middle East tour that will take him to Jordan, Turkey, Lebanon, Egypt and Kuwait.
Netanyahu has met regularly with Putin in recent months in a bid to convince Russia to keep Iranian forces away from Israeli territory. Russia and Israel have also established a hotline to avoid accidental clashes in Syria.
Israel is technically at war with Syria and occupies a swathe of the Golan Heights that it seized in the Six-Day War of 1967 and later annexed in a move never recognised by the international community. source
