HEADLINE: UN report: Israel imposes ‘apartheid regime’ on Palestinians

A UN agency published a report on Wednesday accusing Israel of imposing an “apartheid regime” of racial discrimination on the Palestinian people, and said it was the first time a UN body had clearly made the charge.

The report commissioned by the UN Economic and Social Commission for Western Asia (ESCWA) concluded “Israel has established an apartheid regime that dominates the Palestinian people as a whole.” The accusation - often directed at Israel by its critics - is fiercely rejected by the Jewish state.

UN Under-Secretary General and ESCWA Executive Secretary Rima Khalaf said the report was the “first of its type” from a UN body that “clearly and frankly concludes that Israeli is a racist state that has established an apartheid system that persecutes the Palestinian people”.

Israeli officials did not immediately respond to a request for comment. The United States on Wednesday demanded that UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres withdraw a report by a UN body accusing Israel of imposing apartheid on the Palestinians and of racially dominating them.

Guterres distanced himself from the report by the UN Economic and Social Commission for Western Asia (ESCWA) but US Ambassador Nikki Haley said it should be scrapped altogether.
 HEADLINE: IDF strikes Gaza targets overnight in response to rocket fire

The Israel air force struck two Hamas targets in the Gaza Strip in the early hours of Thursday morning in retaliation for a rocket that landed in the Negev on Wednesday night, the army confirmed on Thursday.
There was no damage or injuries from the rocket launched from the Gaza Strip and no siren sounded as the rocket landed in open territory in the Negev, the IDF spokesperson’s Unit said.

While there have been around 20 rockets launched in 2016 towards Israel from the Gaza Strip, five rockets have been launched at Israel during the past month alone, including two that the Islamic State Group in Sinai claimed responsibility for.

HEADLINE: Syria threatens response to 'Zionist aggresion'

The Syrian army announced that four Israeli aircraft had entered Syrian airspace overnight and struck a military target near the ancient city of Palmyra.

Syria claimed that it shot down one of the four planes. "Four Israeli planes penetrated our air space at 2:40 AM via Lebanese territory and hit a military target on the way to Palmyra," the army said in a statement carried by state news agency SANA.

"Our air defense engaged them and shot down one warplane over occupied territory, hit another one and forced the rest to flee," the statement added.

The IDF confirmed that its aircraft were fired upon over Syria Thursday night. However, the IDF stated that the Arrow-3 missile defense system protected the planes from damage.

The IDF statement said that "several anti-aircraft missiles were launched from Syria during the operation. One of the missiles was intercepted by the air defense systems of the IDF.”

An explosion from a Syrian anti-aircraft missile was heard in the city of Modiin south of Tel Aviv in central Israel. Two of the missiles reportedly landed in Israel, while a third reportedly landed in Jordan.

Syria threatened to respond harshly to the air strike. "This flagrant attack is part of the Zionist enemy's persistent efforts to support the terrorist gangs of ISIS," the Syrian army said.

"It will be responded to directly with all possible means," it added.

HEADLINE: AJC urges Congress to back letter to Trump calling for two-states

The American Jewish Committee is rallying support for a congressional letter to President Donald Trump urging him to reaffirm support for a two-state solution, the latest signal that the American Jewish establishment is committed to preserving the policy.
On Wednesday, the AJC sent a letter to members of the US House of Representatives asking them to sign on and support the letter authored by Reps. Gerry Connolly, D-Va., and David Price, D-N.C., and other measures that preserve peacemaking options even though “current conditions do not provide grounds for optimism.” Meanwhile, Senior Hamas leader Mahmoud Al-Zahar recently declared that "removing the Jews from the land they occupied in 1948 is an immutable principle" in the Koran.

Speaking to Hamas’s Al-Aqsa TV on March 8, Al-Zahar also made clear, "Our position is: Palestine in its entirety, and not a grain of soil less."

HEADLINE: Head of UN's ESCWA resigns over report on "apartheid" Israel

United Nations Secretary-General Antonio Guterres has asked the UN regional commission that represents most Arab countries to remove a report from its website accusing Israel of practicing an "apartheid regime" against Palestinians, a UN official said on Friday.

The report for the United Nations Economic and Social Commission for Western Asia, which comprises 18 Arab states, concluded that "Israel has established an apartheid regime that dominates the Palestinian people as a whole."

The accusation—often directed against Israel by its critics—has never before been made by a United Nations body.

Rima Khalaf, UN Under-Secretary General and ESCWA Executive Secretary, resigned Friday, after what she described as pressure from the secretary general to withdraw the report. Khalaf announced her resignation at a news conference in Beirut.

In her remarks, Khalaf said, "It was expected that Israel and its allies would put enormous pressure on the United Nations secretary general to renounce the report."

Despite pressure, Khalaf stands by the report, calling it the "first of its kind" from a UN agency that sheds light on "the crimes that Israel continues to commit against the Palestinian people, which amount to war crimes against humanity."

HEADLINE: PA furious over terrorist designation

Palestinian Authority (PA) chairman Mahmoud Abbas on Thursday slammed Defense Minister Avigdor Liberman’s decision to designate the Palestinian National Fund (PNF) as a terrorist organization.

A statement issued by Abbas’s bureau said that the PNF is one of the institutions of the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO), which operates according to international agreements and standards.

"At a time when the U.S. administration is working through talks with all parties and when President Trump's envoy is in the region to prepare an atmosphere conducive to peacemaking, this announcement is an attempt by Israel to put obstacles and thwart American efforts," the statement said.

"We strongly oppose this decision and demand that the Israeli government immediately deal with it and cancel it, as this will lead to the collapse of the foundations of the Oslo Agreement and the legal relationship with Israel," it warned.

HEADLINE: Jordan Refuses Unusual US Demand to Extradite Palestinian Terrorist




The Jordanian government has refused an anomalous U.S. request to extradite a Palestinian terrorist.

The Department of Justice’s extradition request for Ahlam Tamimi, who was behind a 2001 terror attack in Jerusalem that resulted in Israeli and American deaths, breaks with past U.S. policy on such terror-related cases. Prior to the Trump administration, legal cases against such terrorists constituted either criminal proceedings in Israeli courts or civil proceedings brought by family members in U.S. courts.

The request calls on Jordan to hand over Tamimi, a female Hamas terrorist who had previously been jailed by Israel for her connection to the Sbarro pizza restaurant terror attack in Jerusalem in August 2001, but was released by Israel as part of the controversial 2011 Gilad Shalit prisoner exchange. The 2001 bombing attack killed 15 people, including seven children and a pregnant woman, and wounded 130.

In its refusal of America’s request, Jordan’s government cited a domestic court ruling that forbids the extradition of Jordanian nationals under the Hashemite Kingdom’s constitution.

And there will be famines, pestilences, and earthquakes in various places” (Matthew 24:6-7) the Greek word for nation is Ethnos & refers to various ethnic groups fighting among themselves, where the next sentence in the verse refers to kingdoms (basileiva) fighting one another (not to be confused with an actual kingdom but rather the right or authority to rule over a kingdom) “Another horse, fiery red, went out. And it was granted to the one who sat on it to take peace from the earth, and that people should kill one another; and there was given to him a great sword.” (Revelation 6:4) So I looked, and behold, a pale horse. And the name of him who sat on it was Death, and Hades followed with him. And power was given to them over a fourth of the earth, to kill with sword, with hunger, with death, and by the beasts of the earth (Revelation 6:8)

 

HEADLINE: Hezbollah is preparing Syria as second battlefield against Israel




Hezbollah intends to wage its next war against Israel from deep within Syria, according to a report on a pro-Hezbollah news site last week.

The report, found on the web site Ya Sour, quoted Hezbollah sources saying the group intends to fire long-range projectiles at the Jewish state from the Qalamoun and Anti-Lebanon Mountain ranges, areas firmly under the Shiite group’s control on both the Syrian and Lebanese sides of the border.

There is reason to suspect that Hezbollah has indeed built up a missile arsenal in those areas, particularly as the city of Baalbek, the heartland of its Beqaa Valley stronghold, lies nearby. Israeli airstrikes against the group in Syria have been concentrated in Qalamoun. Moreover, a spokesman for the opposition’s Syrian National Salvation Front, named Fahd al-Masri, said in Dec. 2016 that Hezbollah was nearing completion of a tunnel in the Zabadani valley linking these two areas. Hezbollah seeks to facilitate the transfer of weapons and “reinforce its presence in the strategically important areas” in the western Damascus countryside, which includes Qalamoun, according to al-Masri.

Earlier in 2016, satellite images revealed a Hezbollah weapons warehouse slightly north of that area in Qusayr, where the group reportedly housed Katyusha rockets, mortars and howitzers. Reports also claimed Hezbollah was storing longer-range, Iranian-produced ballistic missiles there, including the Shahab-1, Shahab-2 and Fateh-110/M-600, which the organization could use to strike Israel.

HEADLINE: Russia warns against Yemen port attack

 

The Russian Foreign Ministry has warned that the Saudi-led coalition’s plans to launch an assault on Yemen’s biggest port city, Al Hudaydah, will greatly impact the humanitarian situation in the war-torn country.

Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said in a statement published on the ministry’s official website that the coalition’s plans to attack Yemen’s biggest port of Hudaydah is causing serious concerns.

A naval blockade by a Saudi-led coalition carrying out air strikes against the yemeni forces is depriving the population of life-sustaining commodities and services.

Zakharova added that battles in this area “would not only inevitably lead to a mass exodus of the [local] population but would also de facto cut the [Yemeni] capital of Sanaa from… food and humanitarian aid supplies.”

HEADLINE: U.S. denies bombing Syrian mosque where dozens died- Aleppo




The U.S. military said it carried out an attack on a building where al-Qaida militants were meeting in Syria, not on a mosque next door where activists say 46 civilians were killed in a bombing.

The Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said the incident occurred in the town of al-Jinah in Aleppo's western countryside. Al-Jinah is located in one of the main rebel-held parts of Syria.

U.S. Central Command spokesman Col. John J. Thomas said the intended target was destroyed late Thursday but the mosque near the target was not struck.

"We did not target any mosques," Thomas said. "What we did target was destroyed. There is a mosque within 50 feet of that building that is still standing."

However, local activists and the SOHR said at least 46 people were killed -- adding the death toll could rise as some are in critical condition and others are missing. The SOHR said it does not know to what country the warplanes that bombed the mosque belong.

Turkey's president continues to ratchet up tensions with the European Union, as he campaigns ahead of an April referendum to extend his presidential powers. The unprecedented rhetoric is raising concerns as to whether Turkish-EU relations can recover. President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, having already accused EU members Germany and the Netherlands of being fascists and Nazis, has extended his war of words to the entire bloc.

Erdogan accused EU countries of persecuting Muslims like Jews were during World War II, and said that the “spirit of fascism” was running wild on the streets of Europe. In the meantime, his foreign minister, Mevlut Cavusoglu, warned that Europe will be the site of what he called “holy wars’ that will ultimately destroy it.

Turkey's Interior Minister Suleyman Soylu has threatened to "blow the mind" of Europe by sending 15,000 refugees a month to EU territory, in an intensifying dispute with the bloc.

South Sudan's government is mainly to blame for famine in parts of the war-torn country, yet President Salva Kiir is still boosting his forces using millions of dollars from oil sales, according to a confidential United Nations report.

U.N. sanctions monitors said 97 percent of South Sudan's known revenue comes from oil sales, a significant portion of which is now forward oil sales, and that at least half of the budget - "likely substantially more" - is devoted to security.

"Revenue from forward oil sales totaled approximately $243 million between late March and late October 2016," the panel of U.N. monitors said in the report to the U.N. Security Council, seen by Reuters on Thursday.

"Despite the scale and scope of the political, humanitarian, and economic crises, the panel continues to uncover evidence of the ongoing procurement of weapons by the ... Government for the SPLA (South Sudanese army), the National Security Service, and other associated forces and militias," the report said.

HEADLINE: Thousands stage anti-militia protests in Libya's capital




Thousands of Libyans have staged mass demonstrations in a rare show of defiance against powerful militias encroaching into Libya's capital, Tripoli, after days of clashes that have effectively chopped the city into warring fiefdoms. This week, four days of intense fighting saw pro-unity government armed forces expand their control in the capital Tripoli, where dozens of militias operate.

Further east, troops commanded by military strongman Khalifa Haftar said on Tuesday they had recaptured two important oil installations seized by a rival Islamist-led force in early March.

Pickup trucks mounted with anti-aircraft weapons attacked the Friday protests, forcing many to flee, according to TV network Libya Channel.

Protesters chanted slogans against the militias and called for a unified army and police. Some voiced support for the eastern-based army commander Khalifa Hifter, who is opposed by his Tripoli-based rivals which include the U.N.-brokered government and militias in the capital.

"We won't go home until our demands are met," said 27-year-old protester Mohamed Zein. "We ask for all militias that have come from outside of Tripoli to leave immediately."

A suicide bomber injured two Bangladeshi police officers on Friday when he attacked a base being built for the police anti-terrorist unit, officials said.

Local media quoting the BBC Bangla service said Islamic State had claimed responsibility for the rare attack on Bangladesh's security services.

Senior Dhaka police official Krishna Pada Roy said police were investigating the incident. It occurred a day after four people linked to a deadly cafe attack in the capital last year were killed when their suicide vests exploded during a raid in the southeastern town of Chittagong.

The injured police officers were taken to Dhaka's military hospital.

Mufti Mahmud Khan, director of the Rapid Action Battalion (RAB), told reporters that a man aged about 25 had blown himself up when challenged as he tried to enter the police special security force's base, which is still under construction.

Initial evidence suggested he was a member of an extremist group, Khan said.

Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, in an exclusive interview with Fox News, refused to rule out increased weaponization and even nuclearization of America’s East Asian allies to deter North Korean aggression.

“We’re exchanging views,” Tillerson said, while standing a few feet within what is technically North Korean territory inside what is known as the Joint Security Area.

“Nothing has been taken off the table,” he said, when asked whether he would rule out nuclearization of the peninsula, during the interview with Fox News.

Tillerson, who’s called the past 20 years of diplomacy toward North Korea a failure, has said the world needs a new strategy.

“Let me be very clear: the policy of strategic patience has ended,” said Tillerson in a later press availability in Seoul with South Korean Foreign Minister Yun Byung-se.

"If they elevate the threat of their weapons program to a level we believe requires action that option is on the table," Tillerson also said, adding the U.S. wants to avoid military conflict and hopes other measures convince North Korea to suspend its weapons programs.

And the woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet colour, and decked with gold and precious stones and pearls, having a golden cup in her hand full of abominations and filthiness of her fornication: And upon her forehead was a name written, MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH. And I saw the woman drunken with the blood of the saints, and with the blood of the martyrs of Jesus: and when I saw her, I wondered with great admiration. And the angel said unto me, Wherefore didst thou marvel? I will tell thee the mystery of the woman, and of the beast that carrieth her, which hath the seven heads and ten horns.

In a bill aimed at securing a "right to be forgotten," introduced by Assemblyman David I. Weprin and (as Senate Bill 4561 by state Sen. Tony Avella), liberal New York politicians would require people to remove ‘inaccurate,’ ‘irrelevant,’ ‘inadequate’ or ‘excessive’ statements about others...

Within 30 days of a ”request from an individual,”
“all search engines and online speakers] shall remove … content about such individual, and links or indexes to any of the same, that is ‘inaccurate’, ‘irrelevant’, ‘inadequate’ or ‘excessive,’ ”
“and without replacing such removed … content with any disclaimer [or] takedown notice.”
“ ‘[I]naccurate’, ‘irrelevant’, ‘inadequate’, or ‘excessive’ shall mean content,”
“which after a significant lapse in time from its first publication,”
“is no longer material to current public debate or discourse,”
“especially when considered in light of the financial, reputational and/or demonstrable other harm that the information … is causing to the requester’s professional, financial, reputational or other interest,”
“with the exception of content related to convicted felonies, legal matters relating to violence, or a matter that is of significant current public interest, and as to which the requester’s role with regard to the matter is central and substantial.”
Failure to comply would make the search engines or speakers liable for, at least, statutory damages of $250/day plus attorney fees.

As The Washington Post's Eugene Volokh rages, under this bill, newspapers, scholarly works, copies of books on Google Books and Amazon, online encyclopedias (Wikipedia and others) — all would have to be censored whenever a judge and jury found (or the author expected them to find) that the speech was “no longer material to current public debate or discourse” (except when it was “related to convicted felonies” or “legal matters relating to violence” in which the subject played a “central and substantial” role).

Syria claimed that it shot down one of the four planes. "Four Israeli planes penetrated our air space at 2:40 AM via Lebanese territory and hit a military target on the way to Palmyra," the army said in a statement carried by state news agency SANA.

"Our air defense engaged them and shot down one warplane over occupied territory, hit another one and forced the rest to flee," the statement added.

The IDF confirmed that its aircraft were fired upon over Syria Thursday night. However, the IDF stated that the Arrow-3 missile defense system protected the planes from damage.

The IDF statement said that "several anti-aircraft missiles were launched from Syria during the operation. One of the missiles was intercepted by the air defense systems of the IDF.”

An explosion from a Syrian anti-aircraft missile was heard in the city of Modiin south of Tel Aviv in central Israel. Two of the missiles reportedly landed in Israel, while a third reportedly landed in Jordan.

Syria threatened to respond harshly to the air strike. "This flagrant attack is part of the Zionist enemy's persistent efforts to support the terrorist gangs of ISIS," the Syrian army said.

"It will be responded to directly with all possible means," it added.

"YES ICANN" ... An eerie chant reminiscent of HUSSEIN’S CAMPAIGN SLOGAN “YES WE CAN” INSURES THAT THE GLOBAL DATA INFRASTRUCTURE WILL BE UNDER hIS CONTROL WHEN hE RETURNS TO THE “WORLD-STAGE”! MARK THESE WORDS ... They are not my own! - BOZUNG

"You will be hated by ALL for My Name Sake"... Yeshua. YOU ARE a "NON-PERSON", " (damnatio memoriae) in the eyes of ALL! ... YOU ARE IDENTIFIED AND CLASSIFIED BY ALGORITHMS AND DIGITAL BEHAVIORIAL MODS AS "BAD FAITH ACTORS" … an “ENEMY of the STATE”! MATTHEW 10:22 / MARK 13:13 / MATTHEW 24:9 / JOHN 15:18-25.

These digital gate keepers will NOW aggressively “CUT OFF” access to entire WEB SITES!

An "Unperson" is defined as a human who has been stripped of rights identity or humanity! THIS IS the mark of the Beast classification that is underway NOW!

The "MARK" of the BEAST is the "PHYSICAL" evidence that a human being is "APPROVED" by the BEAST attesting to their allegiance to the "son of perdition”, whose lawlessness is "enforced by governed adherence under penalty of "law" to "political correctness", the NEW COMMANDMENTS, (COMANDATES) that GOVERN human behavior.

The "MARK" is the "gate-keeper" to ALL commerce and without "IT", no one will buy or sell.

As A "NON-PERSON"...

THE GLOBAL "BEAST" WILL ALSO MAKE LAWS TO ENFORCE THE "SHUTTING of YOUR MOUTH". YOU WILL BECOME AN "UNPERSON" UNLESS YOU EMBRACE THE NEW WORLD ORDER "CO-MMANDATES" of DEBAUCHERY AND ACCEPT THE aNTI-CHRIST WORLD WAY!!! (POLITICALLY CORRECT ABOMINATIONS). YOU MUST NEVER SPEAK OF THE ORIGINAL 10 COMMANDMENTS!!!

JONES AND OTHER MAJOR CONSERVATIVE PUBLICATIONS THAT ARE NOW CENSORED WILL ULTIMATELY RESULT IN THE SILENCE OF TRUE CHRISTIAN BELIEVERS.

AT THE SAME TIME ... THE OSTEENS, COPELANDS, WHITES, WARREN'S AND OTHERS of the APOSTATE RELIGIOUS WILL CONTINUE TO HAVE A VOICE IN THE EARTH, EMBRACED BY THE POPE AND MISINTERPRETED BY MANY "cHRISTIANS" AS EVIDENCE OF "GOD'S APPROVAL" OF THEIR "MINISTRY OF DEATH".

"I tell you that He will bring about justice for them quickly. However, when the Son of Man comes, will He find faith on the earth?" Luke 18:8.

THE TRUTH IS that FRANCIS, THE FALSE PROPHET of ROME and his political partner, THE "son of perdition", wHO IS aNTI-CHRIST, APPROVES OF ALL RELIGIOUS TEACHINGS THAT FORSAKE THE "FULL COUNCIL" OF JEHOVAH AND HIS WORD!!!

WE ARE IN THE MIDST OF THE FIRST PHASE OF THE IMPLEMENTATION OF THE "MARK OF THE BEAST" SYSTEM AS DESCRIBED IN THE BOOK OF REVELATION! Romans 13:17.

ONCE YOU ARE "CUT OFF" FROM ACCESS to the INTERNET because of your LOVE for the FULL COUNCIL of GOD, YOU TOO will be BANNED FROM USING THE INTERNET INFRA-STRUCTURE, (WHICH ADMINISTRATES ALL COMMERCIAL and ECONOMIC TRANSACTIONS, (BANKING, PURCHASING, SELLING). THE INTERNET IS INFRA-STRUCTURE TO CONDUCTING ALL BUSINESS.

“ICANN” The INTERNET CONTROL LOGO is a “CIRCLE”!

When I first published information regarding the "ICON" (MARK) of the BEAST, the (System of the anti-Christ NWO) will be “ROUND” in shape on June 2, 2016, I was never aware of the GLOBAL ICON of world government INTERNET "CONTROL is a “CIRCLE”, (ROUND in configuration).

In order to conduct business, access your bank accounts, healthcare, (buy or sell) … YOU WILL HAVE TO GET PAST THIS “MARK”, (ICON), SYMBOL, that will appear on ALL Internet application devices and WILL require you entering your “uniquely assigned access code number” to gain access to the “NET”.

You may decide to “disconnect” yourself from the WWW, (WORLD WIDE WEB), however, it is the “NET” that connect you to access “EVERYTHING” that you possess except your soul. To bank, you will need to GET PAST the ICON. To buy gasoline, food, and energy, you will need to GET PAST the MARK. There will be NO WAY AROUND “IT”! … MARK THESE WORDS … “THIS IS THAT”!

This “NUMBER” is assigned ONLY to those who have committed their allegiance to the anti-Messiah!!! Therein lies the “practice of “WORSHIPING the BEAST” of Revelation. “Worship” is the devotion, reverence, adoration, adulation, veneration of “something or someone” and EXCLUDES all “OTHERS”.

Every Internet user will be required to denounce ALL “politically incorrect” application of “word and deed”, that WILL include denial of EXCLUSIVE faith in Jesus Christ! MARK THESE WORDS … “THIS IS THAT”!

Originally Published: June 2, 2016 -

FOLLOWING A FUTURE "MARTIAL LAW" EVENT IN THE NEAR FUTURE, YOU WILL SEE AN ICON ON YOUR SCREEN WHEN THE INTERNET IS TURNED BACK ON (UNDER GOVERNMENT CONTROL) – THE (IMAGE), "MARK" (ICON) IS of "ALLEGIANCE" IS “ROUND” IN SHAPE!

THE ELITE WILL NEVER GIVE UP THE DEMONIC CONTROL THAT THEY HAVE ACHIEVED OVER SOCIETY AT LARGE.

THE INFORMATION CONTAINED IN THE ICON (MARK) HAS BEEN DETERMINED AND ALREADY EXISTS, YET REMAINS UNKNOWN TO THE GENERAL PUBLIC AT THIS TIME. THIS ICON CIRCLE IS A "UNIVERSAL INSIGNIA" of GLOBAL AUTHORITY.

THE ICON WILL BE YOUR NEW "WELCOME PAGE" on your electronic device THE MOMENT THAT THE INTERNET IS "RESTORED".

THE "IMAGE, of the BEAST IS an "ICON", a "SYMBOL" that WILL SOON "APPEAR" ON EVERY DIGITAL VIEWING "SCREEN" APPARATUS, THAT YOU OWN. YOUR IPHONE, TELEVISION, HANDHELD, COMPUTER, DEVICE, EVERY ELECTRONIC DEVICE THAT USES 1010001's WILL SOON BE SHUT OFF DURING MULTIPLE NATIONAL EMERGENCIES WHICH ARE SOON TO TAKE PLACE.

In the near future, MARTIAL LAW WILL IN FACT BE IMPOSED UPON THE "NATIONS" THROUGH A GLOBALLY COORDINATED EFFORT.

WHEN THE LIGHTS ARE TURNED BACK ON, A "MARK" an (ICON) WILL APPEAR ON the SCREENS of every digitally controlled device that you own that is connected to the Internet.

THE "BEAST" RELIES UPON A "SYSTEMATIC" "ELIMINATION" OF ALL WHO OPPOSE "POLITICAL CORRECTNESS". POLITICAL CORRECTNESS IS "SPIRITUAL MATTER". Political Correctness instructs humans to participate in the twisted opposite behavior of the Word of God.

YOU WILL SOON BE FORCED TO publicly "PUBLICLY" CHOOSE which GOD you will OBEY and SERVE! PUBLICLY!

EVERYONE WILL KNOW WHAT CHOICE THAT YOU HAVE MADE!!! MARK THESE WORDS! YOU ARE CURRENTLY BEING "SCREENED" by every electronic means to "predetermine" your COMPLIANCE to POLITICAL CORRECTNESS.

YOUR RECENT RESPONSES TO THE HOMOSEXUAL INSANITY OF MIXED SEX TOILETS and SHOWERS as well as your position regarding Obama-snare and every other ABOMINATION that has taken place under the reign of THE SON of PERDITION has been used as a "TEST' in order to SEPARATE and CLASSIFY you BEFORE the DARK POWERS of government UNPLUG THE GLOBAL INTERNET NETWORK and INTRODUCE the NEW "MARK" of the BEAST.

YOU ARE CURRENTLY UNDERGOING A "CORRALLING" PROCESS! YOU HAVE ALREADY BEEN VERIFIED, VALIDATED AND ELIMINATED FROM ELECTRONIC ACCESS TO THE WWW AFTER IT IS TURNED BACK ON.

THIS "WEEDING OUT PROCESS" IS DETERMINED ON THE BASIS OF YOUR NON-COMPLIANCE TO POLITICAL CORRECTNESS. THERE ARE NO EXCEPTIONS FOR THE COMMON MAN!!! When the INTERNET is "TURNED BACK ON", the "ICON" (MARK) will appear for the FIRST TIME. From this moment onward, "RESTRICTED ACCESS" to the Internet will be imposed.

AND DO NOT THINK THAT YOUR SILENCE SAVES YOU FROM APPEARING ON THE "LIST" and BANNED ACCESS. AFTER THE INTERNET IS RE-CONNECTED, EACH INDIVIDUAL WILL SOON BE CONFRONTED WITH A LIST OF QUESTIONS THAT YOU MUST ANSWER. YOUR POLITICALLY CORRECT ANSWER WILL EXCLUDE YOU FROM JEHOVAH'S OWNERSHIP OF YOUR SOUL.

YOUR ANSWERS WILL DETERMINE WHETHER YOU ARE PERMITTED ACCESS TO THE "DIGITAL WORLD" THAT ALLOWS YOU TO BUY AND SELL. LOOK TO JEHOVAH TO SUSTAIN YOUR LIFE. STAND UP NOW FOR JESUS CHRIST. YOUR ATTEMPT TO "HIDE", is in VAIN and WILL END BADLY FOR YOU!!! MARK THESE WORDS! YOU WILL SUFFER DEEPER ANGUISH LATER.

YOU CANNOT HIDE. WITH EXTREME DIFFICULTY YOU WILL CHOOSE WHICH GOD YOU WILL SERVE IN THE MONTHS AHEAD! WHEN THE "LIGHTS GO BACK ON, ACCESS TO "EVERYTHING" WILL BE VIA GOVERNMENT ISSUED USER NAME AND PASSWORD. WITHIN LESS THAN NINE MONTHS, THE USER NAME AND PASSWORD WILL BE "ONBOARD" YOUR HUMAN FLESH.

TAKE YOUR PUBLIC STAND NOW, STAND UP AND REFUSE TO COMPROMISE THE COMMANDMENTS OF JEHOVAH BY REFUTING THE POLITICALLY CORRECT FILTH OF THE 'god' OF THIS WORLD! UNDERSTAND THAT THE "WORSHIP" OF THE "BEAST" IS BASED ON "ALLEGIANCE" TO THE "MARK" that allows access to the "SYSTEM" of "POLITICAL CORRECTNESS".

YOU, WHO STAND LIKE MEN of GOD WILL BE THE FIRST TO BE "EXCLUDED" from access to the BEAST, (REMOVED) FROM COMMERCE ACTIVITIES. YOU WHO THINK YOU ARE HIDING WILL FOLLOW SHORTLY THEREAFTER UNLESS YOU "WORSHIP" THE "BEAST", (POLITICALLY CORRECT ADHERENCE).

THE "IMAGE of the BEAST IS AN "ICON" THAT WILL SOON BE REVEALED AND WILL "APPEAR" ON EVERY VIEWING "SCREENS" APPARATUS, IPHONE, TELEVISION, HANDHELD, COMPUTER, DEVICE THAT YOU OWN. Will YOU GIVE YOUR ALLEGIANCE TO POLITICAL CORRECTNESS AND BE BANISHED TO HELL?

This ICON will be "ROUND" in "shape" and represent a GLOBAL IDENTITY, a symbol, a "mark" that will become prevalent on EVERYTHING that you buy or sell and will be a 'REMINDER' of WHO OWNS YOU!

TO BUY, SELL, YOUR "FAITHFULNESS" MUST BE DEMONSTRATED AND ADHERE TO POLITICALLY CORRECT "CO-MANDATES", the PERVERTED TWIST of the Holy Ten Commandments, (WORD) of Jehovah.

This "ICON" IS A "SYMBOL" THAT WILL "MARK" EVERYTHING and WILL SIGNIFY ABSOLUTE OWNERSHIP and permit CONTROLLED ACCESS to THE GLOBAL "NETWORK", THE "INTERNET of THINGS"!

ALL COMMUNICATIONS BETWEEN PERSONS, FINANCIAL TRANSACTIONS, EVERY ASPECT OF CONDUCTING BUSINESS. ACCESS TO YOUR SOCIAL SECURITY FUNDS, YOUR MEDICARE, MEDICAID, FOOD, FUEL and ENERGY STOP!

THIS DAY IS UPON US NOW! PREPARE YOURSELF! MARK THESE WORDS ... They are NOT my own! - BOZUNG
