Breitbart: President Donald Trump announced Sunday morning from the White House that U.S. forces had killed Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, the leader of the so-called “Islamic State,” or ISIS, saying Baghdadi had “died like a dog,” and had been “whimpering, and crying, and screaming all the way.”
Trump’s unusual vivid description of the battle at Baghdadi’s hideout — in which no U.S. or allied personnel were killed or even injured — sought to portray Baghdadi as a coward who “died like a dog,” evil to the very last. more …
Opinion: For new readers. In 2011 my wife offered to edit this blog and my books if I would agree to take Sunday off from politics – NO MATTER WHAT. So let me see if I can catch up from yesterday.
The magnitude of the raid that killed Baghdadi is underscored by the total silence from the leaders of the Democrat party who continue the trumped-up charges to impeach the president.
By late Sunday afternoon the naysayers began to emerge including Russia who called the raid premature ‘propaganda’. The Times of Israel reports that the raid had to hurried because of the President’s hasty decision to pull out of Syria, which, after several changes of mind, is no longer the case. The president is now committed to keeping troops to ‘secure the oil’.
So is terrorism dead and has the prophetic scenario changed? No. The ideology that gave birth to al Qaeda, ISIS, Hezbollah, and Hamas is the same evil that Israel’s first king Saul was commanded to eliminate.
Samuel also said to Saul, “The Lord sent me to anoint you king over His people, over Israel. Now therefore, heed the voice of the words of the Lord. 2 Thus says the Lord of hosts: ‘I will punish Amalek for what he did to Israel, how he ambushed him on the way when he came up from Egypt. 3 Now go and attack Amalek, and utterly destroy all that they have, and do not spare them. But kill both man and woman, infant and nursing child, ox and sheep, camel and donkey.” 1 Samuel 15:1-3
You see it was Amalek (1400 BC), Esau’s illegitimate grandson, who attacked the Israelites after the Red Sea crossing (Exodus 17:8) killing the weak and infirm. And it was Amalek whom God has sworn to have war with in every generation (Exodus 17:16).
King Saul disobeyed and the ancient terrorist bloodline next turned up in Persia (400 BC), modern day Iran, in one named Haman, a descendant of Amalek, who plotted to kill all the Jews of Persia (Esther 3:5-6). The leopard does not change its spots.
A diminished US role in Syria and an Israeli government in political disarray still leaves Israel vulnerable for attack found in two prophesied wars.
