Fool Me Twice...No Way
To my fellow Guardians of Her Gates,
There is a saying from days long departed: “Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me!” You got me once, but it won’t happen to me again!
Don’t we wish! And then there is that precedent from even further back in the dim distant past. Ancient Judah’s good King Hezekiah, who reigned toward the end of the 8th Century BCE, had an early brush with death at the tender age of 39. Nevertheless in a sort of plea-bargain with the Almighty, he got a promised reprieve of 15 more years. But he eventually did pass on in 687 BCE.
However, as the full tale is told in Isaiah 39, the suffering sovereign in the interim of his recovery, got a bizarre out-of character bedside visit from the King of Babylon—almost as wierd as Ahmadinejad paying a good-will sympathy call to Bibi Netanyahu! Then in a rare rebound of energy on recuperation, the ailing King led his royal guest on a tour of the Temple, proudly giving him full view of all the treasures of Judea’s triumphs. Caught off guard, the otherwise modest monarch had shown him the lot. To catch the irony of the full scene, look up and read all those brief 8 verses of Isaiah 39. Needless to say, the Prophet Isaiah was less than pleased with Hezekiah’s lack of good sense. Note also verses 5-7:
5. Hear the word of the LORD Almighty: 6. “The time will surely come when everything in your palace, and all that your fathers have stored up until this day, will be carried off to Babylon. Nothing will be left, says the LORD. 7. And some of your descendants, your own flesh and blood who will be born to you, will be taken away, and they will become eunuchs in the palace of the king of Babylon”.
OK, Babylon, that's once, so don't try that one again!
So now let’s fast forward to 2013. The newly inaugurated President has been having a devastating time getting approval from Congress for his new Secretary of Defense, a new Secretary of State and the replacement Director of the CIA—Central Intelligence Agency. It seems that every fellow Obama digs up is not all that impressed with America’s (up to now) “best friend” in the Middle East—Israel!
John Kerry, however, finally got the OK to replace Hillary Clinton; Chuck Hagel is having the fight of his life getting the nod for Secretary of Defense due to numerous slurring statements he has made over the years against the sole actual democracy in the Middle East. And then there is John Brennan, the President’s pal for a new Director of the secret-sensitive CIA.
Moreover, speaking of secluded secrets in a bygone Temple, any nation of no-nonsense sovereignty these days, also has an intelligence service that has sealed secrets that are hardly for scrutiny by neighbors near or far. America has the clandestine CIA, Russia the KGB, the UK has the MI5, Scotland Yard is a parallel auxiliary service for addressing dirty deals, and the Mossad exists solely for Israel’s survival from the tidal wave of terrorists that surround her. And the French, the Germans and most of Europe have had their intelligence agencies as well, to protect their private interests from peering eyes and unhelpful ears.
So who is John Brennan and where did he hail from?
Well, he’s been around America’s CIA circles for a fair few years`, even including counterintelligence assignments. He became the USA Station Chief (in lieu of an Ambassador) to Saudi Arabia over 1996-99, and it was during that time that his conversion to Islam was reported. He also visited the Hajj, noting that a non-Muslim dare not attend Mecca. Moreover, videos of his praise of Islam are in good supply (including one on Snopes), and much like his boss in those media-muted videos of his Presidential jaunts to the Middle East, it’s him alright, and he’s the one who is actually saying it!
John Guandolo, a former FBI agent himself, was interviewed by a Florida radio station re Obama's choice of Brennan. I suggest you also might Google: “John Guandolo on CIA Candidate John Brennan” or “John Brennan in Saudi Arabia.” The more you Google, the more shocking it gets. Guandolo states: “Mr. Brennan did convert to Islam when he served in an official capacity on behalf of the United States in Saudi Arabia,” Guandolo adds: “That fact alone is not what is most disturbing; his conversion to Islam was the culmination of a counterintelligence operation to recruit him. The fact that foreign intelligence service operatives recruited Brennan when he was in a very sensitive and senior U.S. government position in a foreign country means that he either is a traitor, or else he has the inability to discern…how to walk in those kinds of environments, making him unfit for the office.” So much for John Guandolo’s inside observations!
Yet in another day and in another scenario, one does wonder how the Prophet Isaiah might view a Muslim for Mossad Chief!
Moreover, the bottom line is hardly about spies in the US State Department. Rather it's about wising-up from the treachery of an ancient happening in Hezekiah's Temple. Whether it be in that particular "House for meeting God" of 7th Century BC Jerusalem, or in a current hands-on identity with divine fulfillment of an Israel regathered by her God in our day, there is a lesson to be learned. From boot-licking of Babylon's Boss, to "democratically" kow-towing to diversity in 2013, political correctness is treachery from the pit!
Whether Israel's secularist left, or their ultra-religious right may like it or not, Israel is headed home--their only home. Consider that Herzl’s Zionist Congress in 1897, the UK's Balfour Declaration of 1917, Israel’s Independence Day (and Islam’s "Nakba" Day) of 1948 was anything but happenstance. Isaiah, Zechariah, Joel and the Hebrew prophets all pointed to it, while an exiled Jewish remnant wept and prayed, “Next Year in Jerusalem” for the last 2000 years.
To his chagrin, King Hezekiah, shared his nations secrets with the wrong crowd, while yet another King Solomon proposed that there would be “…nothing new under the sun.” And so it has been!
So whether Mr. Brennan gets the new job or not, spells merely the peril of his promoters, while we who watch and pray upon Jerusalem’s walls can comfortably rest assured that her future will continue in her Designer's course--with or without John Brennan or the CIA!
