11 And great earthquakes shall be in divers places, and famines, and pestilences;(plural not single) and fearful sights and great signs shall there be from heaven.
7 And when he had opened the fourth seal, I heard the voice of the fourth beast say, Come and see.
8 And I looked, and behold a pale horse:(Clorus Green,sickly) and his name that sat on him was Death, and Hell followed with him. And power was given unto them over the fourth part of the earth, to kill with sword, and with hunger, and with death, and with the beasts of the earth.(murder, Famine, Incurable Diseases, and Animal diseases).
Mystery disease hits South TexasBizarre symptoms: Black, tarry beads of sweat, lesions, fibers popping out of skin
Posted: May 13, 2006 2:05 a.m. Eastern, © 2006 WorldNetDaily.com
To the concern of medical professionals already preparing for a potential bird flu pandemic, a mysterious disease first documented 300 years ago is spreading throughout South Texas. Morgellons disease has not been known to kill and it doesn't appear to be contagious – it's the disease's horrible symptoms that worry doctors.
These people will have like beads of sweat but it's black, black and tarry," Ginger Savely, a nurse practioner in Austin who has treated a majority of Morgellons patients, told the San Antonio Express-News. Patients infected with the disease get lesions that never heal. Sometimes little black specks come out of the lesions and sometimes little fibers," said Stephanie Bailey, a Morgellons patient. It's those different-colored fibers that pop out of the skin that may be the most bizarre symptom of the disease.
Travis Wilson, a Morgellons sufferer for over a year, once called his mother in to see a fiber coming out of a lesion in his chest. It looked like a piece of spaghetti was sticking out about a quarter to an eighth of an inch long and it was sticking out of his chest, Lisa Wilson said. I tried to pull it as hard as I could out and I could not pull it out. He'd have attacks and fibers would come out of his hands and fingers, white, black and sometimes red. Very, very painful, said Wilson.
More than 100 cases of the disease have been reported in South Texas. It really has the makings of a horror movie in every way," Savely said. To make matters worse for sufferers, some doctors dismiss the disease as a delusion because the symptoms patients experience are so bizarre. Believe me," said Savely, "if I just randomly saw one of these patients in my office, I would think they were crazy too. But after you've heard the story of over 100 (patients) and they're all — down to the most minute detail — saying the exact same thing, that becomes quite impressive.
The outbreak's proximity to the Texas-Mexico border comes at a time when the issues of illegal immigration, border security and possible amnesty for over 12 million illegal aliens are being debated in the U.S. The Wilson's spent $14,000 last year after insurance coverage on medical treatment for the disease, primarily on antibiotics. He was on Tamadone for pain. Viltricide,
this was an anti-parasitic. This was to try and protect his skin because of all the lesions and stuff," said Wilson. Travis, 23, complained of feeling like bugs were crawling all over him. "You can't sleep. It's freaky. So he'd go days without sleep," she said.
Austin resident Stephanie Bailey, who developed the lesions over four years ago, said she felt the same crawling sensation that Travis Wilson had felt. "The lesions come up, and then these fuzzy things like spores come out," she said. "You just want to get it out of you. She, to this day, has no idea what could have caused her disease, and nothing has worked to rid her of it. They (doctors) told me I was just doing this to myself, that I was nuts. So basically I stopped going to doctors because I was afraid they were going to lock me up," Bailey said. Pathologists have not been able to find any infection in the fibers pulled from lesions.
Clearly something is physically happening here," said Dr. Randy Wymore, a researcher at the Morgellons Research Foundation at Oklahoma State University's Center for Health Sciences. "These fibers don't look like common environmental fibers. Currently the only treatment that has shown success is an antibiotic. More than half of Morgellons patients have also been diagnosed with Lymes disease, but no other connections have been found. It sounds a little like a parasite, like a fungal infection, like a bacterial infection, but it never quite fits all the criteria of any known pathogen," said Savely, who continues to treat the disease others say isn't real.
Wilson says her son suffered to such a point she was sure he was suicidal. I knew he was going to kill himself, and there was nothing I could do to stop him," she said. Travis Wilson committed suicide two weeks ago.
INFLATION HITS 1000 PERCENT
Here in Story 1 Zimbabwe Inflation has just hit 1000%. It reached 1042% in April and the Governments response has been to print more money so adding to the inflation rate pressure. Food, fuel and foreign currency are in short supply. A loaf of Bread what cost around 65,000 Zimbabwe dollars in February now costs more then 100,000.00. People are finding it hard to survive and the average lifespan is 37 years for Men and 34 years for Women.
Many families are reduced to living on 1 meal a day. It all started 6 yrs ago with Zimbabwes leader and his land distrubition program and began taking white owned farms. Now the Government can not pay the armed forces or civil servants and economists are warning inflation apears to be unstopable.
Does this sound familiar like in Israel the people are getting their holmes taken from them by force which could bring the inflation of Zimbabewe. Coupled with the high gas prices all over the world which will bring inflation bigtime, the world is in for tough times like the Bible says in the last days.
A loaf of bread will be 7 times the current price the Bible says, so in the future we can expect to pay about $8.00 for a loaf of bread, a great amount of shortages will occur as we go to the scriptures to see.
7 And when ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars, be ye not troubled: for such things must needs be; but the end shall not be yet.
8 For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom:(Ethnic groups against each other) and there shall be earthquakes in divers places, and there shall be famines and troubles: these are the beginnings of sorrows.
5 And when he had opened the third seal, I heard the third beast say, Come and see. And I beheld, and lo a black horse; and he that sat on him had a pair of balances in his hand.(measuring scales)
6 And I heard a voice in the midst of the four beasts say, A measure of wheat for a penny, and three measures of barley for a penny;( a days wages for a loaf of bread) and see thou hurt not the oil and the wine.( still riches elsewhere)
7 And when he had opened the fourth seal, I heard the voice of the fourth beast say, Come and see.
8 And I looked, and behold a pale horse: and his name that sat on him was Death, and Hell followed with him. And power was given unto them over the fourth part of the earth, to kill with sword, and with hunger, and with death, and with the beasts of the earth.
REVELATION 18:8-19,14 (THIS IS AMERICA (USA) IN THESE VERSES)
8 Therefore shall her plagues come in one day, death, and mourning, and famine; and she shall be utterly burned with fire: for strong is the Lord God who judgeth her.
9 And the kings of the earth, who have committed fornication and lived deliciously with her, shall bewail her, and lament for her, when they shall see the smoke of her burning,
10 Standing afar off for the fear of her torment, saying, Alas, alas, that great city Babylon, that mighty city! for in one hour is thy judgment come.
14 And the fruits that thy soul lusted after are departed from thee, and all things which were dainty and goodly are departed from thee, and thou shalt find them no more at all.
15 The merchants of these things, which were made rich by her, shall stand afar off for the fear of her torment, weeping and wailing,
16 And saying, Alas, alas, that great city, that was clothed in fine linen, and purple, and scarlet, and decked with gold, and precious stones, and pearls!
17 For in one hour so great riches is come to nought. And every shipmaster, and all the company in ships, and sailors, and as many as trade by sea, stood afar off,
So here we see there will be great inflations and famines in places oviously Africa and places like that, but still riches in others European Union. Its all coming together right now just like the Bible says it will come to pass literally.
Zimbabwe: Inflation Set to Breach 1000% (APR 26, 2006)
ZIMBABWE'S skyrocketing inflation rate will surge above 1000% at the end of this month as prices of goods and services continue to escalate, a regional financial services firm says. Fungai Tarirah, chief investment officer of Harare-based Imara Asset Management Zimbabwe, said yesterday the country's inflation would top 1000% by the end of April, a move likely to
worsen Zimbabwe's political and economic woes. Some businesses put the inflation rate as high as 1600%.
Imara incorporates Botswana and has offices in SA, UK, Malawi, Namibia, Zambia and Zimbabwe. Zimbabwe's inflation is at 913,6% and is the highest in the world, followed by Iraq at 40%. Other economic indicators are also grim. The economy is critically short of foreign currency, food, fuel, electricity and other basic commodities. This week the central bank's overnight accommodation rate rose from 750% to 800%, making it difficult for commercial banks to borrow from the Bank.
The interbank rate is 637%, while the rate in treasury bills is 525%. International Monetary Fund economist Sonia Munoz argues in a recent paper that Zimbabwe is going through a period of "sup-pressed inflation" due either to manipulation of statistics or to a structural break in the market. A month-on-month increase of only 16,6% will reach 1000% inflation by the end of April, though if we maintain the month-on-month average of 22% seen so far this year, the year-on-year reading will reach 1051%.
In-house inflation computations from some big companies canvassed by our research unit range from 1100% to 1600%, depending on the import content of the goods and service under review. Tarira said yesterday the effectiveness of management's response to the hyper-inflation challenge has become the critical factor when measuring corporate value and performance.
The maxim 'cash is king' tells only part of the story. Cash generated by business must hastily find its way into raw materials, fuel, spares, capital expenditure or some other tangible asset before it loses value," he said.
The value of a Zimbabwean dollar is halving every 29 days, if official inflation is to be believed. Only debtor balances that attract at least 23% a month in interest are of any use. Even then, the rate has to be frequently adjusted to try to keep pace with inflation. Zimbabwe's public hospitals had hiked their fees 200%, the state-run Herald said yesterday. The increase pushes health care beyond the reach of most citizens straining under world-record inflation.
The hikes come in the wake of private doctors and hospitals pushing up prices 100% a fortnight ago. Patients admitted to intensive care would pay Z$8,5m a day, maternity fees would go up to Z$1,3m a day, while patients in theatre would have to fork out Z$105000 a minute, the newspaper said.

NWS: Damage Caused By Tornado, Microburst Fri May 12, 3:04 PM ET
The National Weather Service said Thursday that it believes it knows what caused damage in two Tri-State counties on Wednesday night. Forecasters toured damaged areas of Highland County and Brown County Thursday morning, and determined that damage in Brown County near Ripley was caused by a microburst, a very localized column of sinking air, producing damaging straight-line winds at the surface.
In Highland County, near Hillsboro, the NWS found evidence of a weak F-0 tornado, with winds up to 72 mph. While tornadoes and microbursts often cause the same type of damage, the path and form of damage differs, and forecasters use these differences to determine which event occurred. No injuries were reported in either location.
Weather service confirms three tornadoes Contributed by Frank Hammon, WFLS
FREDERICKSBURG, Va.(AP) _ The National Weather Service says that three tornadoes touched down in the Fredericksburg area yesterday afternoon. Damage was mostly to trees. All three twisters registered F-Zero on the Fujita Scale, which means wind speeds were 40 to 72 miles an hour. The first tornado touched down near Mastins Corner at about 5:35 p.m. Falling trees and limbs caused some structural damage along a path 75 yards wide and five miles long.
Just before 6 p.m., the same system spawned a second tornado in the Fredericksburg-Spotsylvania National Military Park. It was about 50 yards wide and traveled on the ground for about a mile. Damage was mostly to trees. A third and smaller tornado from the same storm system traveled across I-95 just north of the Route 17 Interchange at 6:15 p.m. Its path was
estimated to be about 300 yards long and it was 50 yards wide. Tree damage could be seen on both sides of the highway.

ARAB ROCKETS HIT JUDEA SUMARIA
Well the EU should come into help this situation, since it will be the EU that guarentees Israels security during the future 7 year peace deception treaty.
Arab Rocket Threat Reaches Judea and Samaria 12:45 May 12, '06 / 14 Iyar 5766
by Hana Levi Julian-The threat of rocket attacks from areas in Judea and Samaria now controlled by the Palestinian Authority is becoming real, but the IDF has yet to respond.
According to WorldNetDaily’s Jerusalem Bureau Chief Aaron Klein, the government has been
minimizing the threat, due to the risk of adverse publicity that would reflect on Prime Minister Ehud Olmert, jeopardizing his unilateral withdrawal plan.
Some terror groups within the PA-controlled territories have acquired rocket technology, including the Al-Aksa Martyrs Brigades, which on Monday fired two rockets from Jenin, aimed at a nearby IDF military installation.
An IDF spokesman officially denied the report. However, according to Klein, a security official confirmed on condition of anonymity that the Jenin-1 rockets, less advanced Kassams with a range of approximately one mile, were indeed fired this week.
There have been a number of reports in the past of such rockets fired from northern Shomron, with preliminary denials from the IDF and later announcements that some rockets actually were, in fact, launched in the area. According to the Al-Aksa Martyrs’ Brigades leaders who spoke with WND, the projectiles are called “Bahaa” rockets, after Saed Bahaa, a group member killed by IDF forces in an anti-terror operation last week.
The advent of rocket attacks from PA-controlled territories in Yesha is a relatively new development. Kassam rocket attacks have repeatedly been launched at southern Israeli communities from northern Gaza for months since Israel’s unilateral withdrawal. IDF shelling of Gaza launch sites has done little to stem the flow of terror which has traumatized Jews in southern Israel, especially in communities where schools and community centers have not been fortified against the attacks.
Terror groups are pledging to continue firing rockets in Gaza, as well as from PA-controlled areas in the Jewish regions of Judea and Samaria. Abu Oudai, Al-Aksa's West Bank rocket coordinator, told WND, "This was not the first time we shot rockets from Jenin to the settlements of the enemy inside the green line. It is the enemy who for the first time has admitted that these rockets exist in [Judea and Samaria] and that they were shot against Israeli targets. We have launched six times, and with the help of Allah we will launch these rockets regularly.
In February, Israel's Shin Bet Security Services captured a rocket launcher and mortars in Bethlehem that were to be fired at Gilo, a Jewish neighborhood in southern Jerusalem. The day the attack was thwarted, Abu Abir, spokesman for the Popular Resistance Committees terror organization, said his group was coordinating extensive rocket capabilities in Judea and
We call on (Shin Bet chief Yuval) Diskin and tell him not to be so happy and proud about stopping our attack because there is much more to come. I am not going to give details (about which cities we will attack), but we are planning to be present all around the West Bank. Every Israeli target is a legitimate target. Jerusalem, Ben Gurion International Airport, Tel Aviv and every Israeli point can be part of our goals.
Knesset Member Effie Eitam (National Union), said yesterday that any Judea and Samaria withdrawal will result in rockets fired a major Israeli cities.
Aside from the short-range rockets the Palestinians have now, it is just a question of time before they obtain longer-range missiles from Iran. Regardless, Olmert's withdrawal will give the terrorists land bordering our major cities, said Eitam, who serves on the Knesset Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee.
Israel withdrew from Lebanon in 2000. Now Hezbollah has over 10,000 missiles on the border pointed at us. Israel evacuated Gaza last summer. The missiles are flying out every day, Eitam stated. There is no doubt a withdrawal from Judea and Samaria will bring a rocket war to Israel.

Fuel pipeline explodes in Nigeria; police say 150 to 200 people killed DULU MBACHU
1 hour, 49 minutes ago ILADO, Nigeria (AP) - A pipeline exploded in Nigeria as villagers collected fuel from the ruptured conduit, killing between 150 and 200 people and leaving charred bodies scattered around the blast site. Dozens of burned corpses could be seen lying on
the ground at the waterside village of Ilado, about 45 kilometres east of Lagos, Nigeria's main city, and police said dozens had perished in the flames.
Between 150 and 200 people died," Lagos Police Commissioner Emmanuel Adebayo told reporters. Rescue workers dug a ditch near the exploded pipeline and Adebayo said the bodies would be buried in a common grave. They are going to be given a mass burial," Adebayo said. The impoverished people of Africa's oil giant often tap into pipelines, seeking fuel for cooking or
resale on the black market. The highly volatile petroleum can ignite, incinerating those collecting it.
In September 2004, a pipeline exploded near Lagos as thieves tried to siphon gasoline from it, with up to 50 people perishing in the flames. A 1998 pipeline blast killed over 1,000 in southern Nigeria. Most of Nigeria's petroleum is pumped in the southern Niger Delta region, far from Lagos. Pipes carry the crude to refineries across the vast country. Nigeria, which normally pumps 2.5 million barrels of crude a day, is Africa's largest producer and the fifth-largest source of imports to the United States.
Quake rattles Indonesian capital Fri May 12, 7:28 AM ET
JAKARTA (AFP) - A strong undersea earthquake measuring 5.6 on the Richter scale hit the Sunda Strait between the islands of Sumatra and Java in Indonesian and was felt in the capital Jakarta, an official said. The quake hit at 15:17 pm (0817 GMT) at a depth of 33 kilometres (20 miles), an official from the meteorology office in Jakarta said. It was felt in the town of Cilegon
in West Java as well as in Jakarta," he told AFP.
Another official who gave his name as Bagyo later said the quake was mostly found in the town of Bandarlampung, in Sumatra's Lampung province and in Serang in West Java. We have received some reports of homes damaged, mostly cracked walls in the area of Kalianda in Lampung," he told AFP, adding that no reports of casualties were received. He said the epicentre was located just 39 kilometres west of Bandarlampung.
Indonesia sits on the Pacific "Ring of Fire", where the meeting of continental plates means seismic activity is common. A geographical faultline runs parallel to the Indonesian island of Sumatra and tectonic activities along it have repeatedly led to strong earthquakes.
Light Quake Shakes Northern California Fri May 12, 9:30 AM ET
COBB, Calif. - A light quake shook an area north of San Francisco Friday morning and there were no immediate reports of damage or injuries. The magnitude 4.4 quake struck at 3:37 a.m. PDT about five miles southwest of the town of Cobb, according to a preliminary report from the U.S. Geological Survey. Cobb is 77 miles northwest of San Francisco.
11 dead or missing as tropical storm hits Philippines Fri May 12, 12:47 PM ET
MANILA (AFP) - Six people died and with five others were missing after a small ferry capsized as tropical storm Chanchu slammed into the central Philippines, the coast guard reported. Thirteen people were rescued after the MV May Anne went down in rough waters off the island of Masbate, the coast guard said. The storm had earlier caused the coast guard to suspend ferry operations, stranding some 6,000 people in ports in the central Visayas and eastern Bicol regions.
Television reports said the operators of the ill-fated ferry disregarded the coast guard's orders and set out to sea anyway. Chanchu, the first storm to hit the country this year, slammed into the Philippines overnight causing flash floods and landslides that forced the evacuation of hundreds of villagers, disaster relief officials said Friday. Families from several villages
in the town of Sogod, in the central island province of Southern Leyte, were also evacuated after heavy rains caused a landslide that cut off a highway, provincial governor Rosette Lerias told AFP. At least 11 villages with about 1,000 families in Sogod had been isolated, with one vital bridge also impassable, Lerias said.Another 40 families in the town of Macrohon were also evacuated after heavy flooding, she said. It has been raining really hard, and we had about 130 millimeters (five inches) of rainfall yesterday alone," Lerias said, adding that normal rainfall according to forecasters should be 550 millimeters in a week. We are working very closely with the national government in Manila and we have all the supplies we need," she said.
She said parts of Leyte as well as the entire province of Albay in the Bicol region were experiencing blackouts. The storm came almost three months after torrential rains caused the collapse of a mountainside that engulfed the Leyte village of Guinsaugon, leaving more than 1,000 people buried alive under a massive mudslide. Nerry Amparo, head of operations in
Manila's Office of Civil Defense, said field reports coming in indicated zero casualties so far in the latest storm. Storm warnings were hoisted in some 23 provinces and islands, including the capital Manila, where rain has fallen since Thursday.
The storm had slightly weakened as it made landfall overnight, and was expected to dump more rain in metropolitan Manila as its eye passes Friday night, the weather bureau said. Continuing with its northwest path with maximum sustained winds of 95 kilometers (58 miles) per hour, Chanchu was forecast to hit areas in the main island of Luzon Saturday before subsiding
Monday. Flag carrier Philippine Airlines and two other domestic carriers cancelled nine flights to the Visayas and Bicol, but the announcement came late and many passengers were stuck in the airport.
The weather bureau said residents along coastal areas should seek higher ground "due to big waves generated by the storm" and those under the slopes to evacuate. Noel Rosal, the mayor of Legaspi city in eastern Albay province, said some 200 families were also evacuated in the area after flash floods when power went down. But we have enough supplies and hopefully
the weather will improve soon," Rosal said on local television. An average of 19 storms and typhoons strike the Philippines every year, killing hundreds of people through floods, landslides, and other hazards induced by strong winds and heavy rain.

Quake strikes western Myanmar 2 minutes ago HONG KONG
(Reuters) - An earthquake with a magnitude 5.4 on the Richter Scale struck western Myanmar, the Hong Kong Observatory said on Friday. The quake struck at 1727 GMT (1:27 p.m. EDT) on Thursday, or just before midnight Myanmar time, about 230 km (140 miles) northwest of Mandalay. It gave no further details.
5.1-Magnitude Earthquake Hits Taiwan Wed May 10, 1:23 PM ET TAIPEI,
Taiwan - A moderate earthquake shook eastern Taiwan on Wednesday, the Central Weather Bureau said. No injuries or damage were reported. The 5.1-magnitude quake was centered 11.6 miles south of Hualien, the weather bureau said.Hualien lies on Taiwan's east coast, about 60 miles southeast of the capital, Taipei.
Quakes frequently rattle Taiwan, but most are minor and cause little or no damage. However, a 7.6-magnitude earthquake in central Taiwan in September 1999 killed more than 2,300 people.
Light quake rattles eastern Bulgaria, no injuries Wed May 10, 7:59 AM ET
SOFIA (AFP) - A light quake measuring 3.3 on the Richter scale rattled eastern Bulgaria without causing any injuries or material damage, the country's seismology center announced. The tremor hit at 12:31 pm (0931 GMT), with the epicenter located on Bulgarian territory, some 230 kilometers (143 miles) east of the capital Sofia. It was felt in the regions around the
towns of Nova Zagora and Sliven but there were no reports of injuries or serious damage caused, the center said.
MAHDI AHMADINEJAD CHAOS
Posted: May 5, 2006, 1:00 a.m. Eastern, © 2006 WorldNetDaily.com
Iran's President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad was invited to speak at the United Nations in October 2005. At the conclusion of his discourse, he called upon Allah to quickly usher in the re emergence of the "Twelfth" or "Hidden Imam," sometimes referred to as the "Mahdi. The fanatical leader later claimed that while he spoke to that august body, he was surrounded by a halo of light.
Mr. Ahmadinejad regaled a local ayatollah with the story of how The leaders of the world" stared at him during the time he spoke. He further claimed that they were unable to blink or turn away, as though some unseen force held them in a trance-like state. When I say they didn't bat an eyelid, I'm not exaggerating, because I was looking at them," intoned Ahmadinejad.
Ahmadinejad is a Shia Muslim. Many of them believe that the Twelfth Imam, or Mahdi, the last in a line of saints descended from Ali, the founder of their sect, vanished down a well near Jamkaran, Iran, in A.D. 941. According to their beliefs, he went into a state of "occultation," like the sun being hidden behind the clouds; and, after a stormy period of apocalyptic wars, the
clouds will part, and the "sun" (the Mahdi) will be revealed. They believe that when he is released from his imprisonment, the entire world will submit to Islam.
The world may smirk as they hear the president of Iran talking of the return of the Mahdi and
think it is just a bunch of religious foolishness. But, he is dead serious. Not only does he believe it, but the tens of thousands of mullahs controlling ancient Persia believe it also. It is their mission from God. But just who is this "Mahdi," this Hidden Imam? Some thought it was the Ayatollah Khomeini. In fact, when he returned to Iran in February 1979 following the overthrow of the Shah Mohammed Reza Pahlevi, the roads leading into Tehran were lined with nearly 2 million Shia Muslims screaming "al-Muntazar.
The grand ayatollah was quick to deny that he was "al-Muntazar, one of the names given to the Hidden Imam. In other words, many thought Khomeini was the awakened Mahdi. Khomeini did, however, explain to his followers that he was the forerunner, the one who had come to open the way for the Hidden Imam to make his reappearance.
The Hidden Imam, upon his unveiling, will, according Iran's constitution, assume leadership in the Islamic republic. All will acquiesce to his authority in what is essentially an end-time paradigm based on what some call the Muslim messiah. Ahmadinejad's belief in this Hidden Imam is so compelling that he may well be persuaded to go to any lengths, including a nuclear attack on Israel and/or the United States, to precipitate an apocalyptic event, a means to an end.
Initially, Ahmadinejad's threats seemed but the idle ranting of a megalomaniac. But now, armed with the capability to produce nuclear weapons, Iran will be a menace with which to be reckoned. The spirit of the Grand Ayatollah Khomeini lives on in Iran. This is the same Khomeini who said in 1981, "I say let Iran go up in smoke, provided Islam emerges triumphant in the rest of the world.
The ummah or Muslims worldwide are comprised of Sunni and Shia Muslims. The two different sects evolved following the death of Muhammad. The Sunnis readily accepted his successor, while the Shia Muslims demanded their leader be a direct descendant of Muhammad. This personage is known to the Shia as "Ali." Hence the designation, "The Party of Ali. Through
the ages, additional subdivisions in the Shia sect have pitted one group against another, all led by recognized descendants of Muhammad. Their individual designations are derived from the number of the imam which they follow.
Thus, Iran is comprised mainly of followers of the "Twelfth," or the Hidden Imam. He succeeded Al-Hassan al-Askari who died in A.D. 874. Shiite Muslims believe that the Twelfth Imam disappeared down a well near Jamkaran in A.D. 941, and will emerge from this location at his Second Coming. But first, they believe, the world will go through great calamities and upheavals. This "apocalypse" will set the conditions for the Mahdi's return. The Hidden Imam is known by several monikers, which translate to "expected one," the "hidden one" and, of course, Mahdi (promised one).
His mystique is enhanced by the legend that the young successor in the lineage of Muhammad was secreted because he was unaccepted by the majority of Muslims. He will apparently be kept in seclusion until the day he emerges to reunite Muslims, conquer the world and establish an Islamic caliphate. Ahmadinejad has taken up the banner of the Hidden Imam. His hate-filled rhetoric aimed at the Jews and America is stirring fanatical Muslims the world over. On April 20, a group calling itself the Islamic Thinkers Society rallied near the Israeli Embassy in Queens, N.Y. Carrying placards and banners picturing an Islamic flag flying over the White House, they shouted such vile pronouncements as:
Zionists, Zionists You will pay!
The Wrath of Allah is on its way!
Israeli Zionists You shall pay!
The Wrath of Allah is on its way!
The mushroom cloud is on its way!
The real Holocaust is on its way!
We will not accept the United Nations, they are the criminals themselvesThey get paid by the Israeli and the U.S. government to do their job.We don't recognize United Nations as a body; We only recognize Allah.Israel won't last long ... Indeed, Allah will repeat the Holocaust right on the soil of Israel.
Islam will dominate the world, Islam is the only solution.Another mushroom cloud, right in the midst of Israel! As days pass, Ahmadinejad becomes more defiant. It is as if he is daring the nations of the world to try to stop him. How far will he go? Will he, indeed, launch a murderous attack against Israel or the United States in a misguided attempt to see his dream of the return of the Hidden Imam come to fruition? It becomes more obvious that he is willing to stop at nothing to reach his goal.

In the Book of Revelation we see the Sky become Blood red this could be the future cause. A SOLAR STORM. First there will be an Earthquake, then the Moon Turns Red, then the Meteorites hit he Earth. I have a feeling this Solar storm will cause the Meteors to fall to Earth as well as from the Quake.
12 And I beheld when he had opened the sixth seal, and, lo, there was a great earthquake; and the sun became black as sackcloth of hair, and the moon became as blood;
13 And the stars of heaven fell unto the earth, even as a fig tree casteth her untimely figs, when she is shaken of a mighty wind.
14 And the heaven departed as a scroll when it is rolled together; and every mountain and island were moved out of their places.
15 And the kings of the earth, and the great men, and the rich men, and the chief captains, and the mighty men, and every bondman, and every free man, hid themselves in the dens and in the rocks of the mountains;

17 For the great day of his wrath is come; and who shall be able to stand?
Scientists warn of solar storm threatUpdated Thu. May. 4 2006 10:19 AM ET (Valerie Iancovich , DiscoveryChannel.ca)
The heavens assumed an almost blood red appearance, while here and there long streaks of light shot up from the horizon to the zenith," The New York Herald reported after the solar storm of 1859. Scientists say in less than a decade, it will likely happen again on a more devastating scale. As the world scrambles to prepare for hurricanes and earthquakes of
unprecedented strength, some scientists say the sun poses an equal threat, with predictions calling for a 2012 sun storm of immense proportions.
If the idea of a solar storm sounds too much like the stuff of sci-fi, consider this: a single large solar flare has a million times more energy than the largest earthquake, according to Space.com. The vast space between the Earth and the Sun is filled with electrically-charged particles, radiation, magnetic fields, and electromagnetic energy that could play havoc with Earth in
the event of elevated solar output. The last great solar super storm was 145 years ago. But, this event provides little context given our very recently-adopted dependence on satellite-based technologies.
Last month, experts convened in Colorado during Space Weather Week (April 25-28) to discuss the issues surrounding the approaching 2012 event. If the storm turns out to be at the same scale as the one in 1859, economic disaster would ensue, with immediate costs around the $20 billion mark. Sten Odenwald of the QSS Corp., based at NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt predicts that in the 2012 storm will kill only the oldest of the 300 geosynchronous Earth-orbiting (GEO) satellites. However the storm would likely reduce the life of all the other satellites by five to 10 years.
These longer-term problems would add tens of billions of dollars more over the years, Odenwald says. The GEO satellites alone generate about $97 billion US in revenue each year.
A solar superstorm could also:
· force about 100 low Earth-orbiting spacecraft to undergo earlier-than-normal reentry
· disrupt Global Positioning Systems the world over
· force the International Space Station to lose altitude.
And in this Story the Bible says that Nuclear weapons will be used in WW3. Here are the effects of A Nuclear Bomb going off right from the Bible.
12 And this shall be the plague wherewith the LORD will smite all the people that have fought against Jerusalem; Their flesh shall consume away while they stand upon their feet, and their eyes shall consume away in their holes, and their tongue shall consume away in their mouth.
Tuesday, May 09, 2006 Israel will hit Iran in the next few months: Israeli official
(By Khalid Hasan)
WASHINGTON: Israel will strike Iran’s nuclear facilities in the next “month or two or three,” an Israeli official has been quoted here as saying. The unnamed official told Arnaud de Borchgrave, editor-in-chief of the United Press International (UPI), at the recently held national day reception at the Israeli Embassy that he believed Israel would strike Iran first in the next two or three months and that fighter bombers would not be involved as they had been to take out Iraq’s Osirak nuclear reactor before it went critical in 1981. For Osirak, Israel had used 14 F-15s and F-16s. This time, the Israeli said, it would be missiles.
Asked if Israel would employ Cruise missiles, he replied, “with a gesture of his hand that went up and down again”, which meant that it would be the weapon of choice. Asked if tunnel entrances to widely scattered Iranian nuclear facilities would be targeted, he responded that Israel had its own geo-stationary spy-in-the-sky satellite taking constant pictures of Iran with a resolution down to 70 centimetres. “We know far more than anyone realises,” he added.
De Borchgrave’s report quoted a poll of conservative Republicans by a conservative web-based news service, which showed overwhelmingly strong support for bombing Iran. Almost 60,000 people took part in the poll and 88 percent agreed that Iran poses a greater threat than Saddam Hussein did before the Iraq War. To the question, “Should the US undertake military action against Iran to stop their (nuclear) programme?” 77 percent replied yes, 23 percent said no.
Forty-five percent said that military action should be taken by the United States, while 35 percent wanted Israel to do that. Twenty percent said neither. As for whether US efforts to contain Iran’s nuclear weapons are working, 93 percent said they were not, while 89 percent said the US should not rely solely on the UN.
According to de Borchgrave, “Israel has developed some 100 Jericho-II medium-range ballistic missiles (which entered service in 1989). Jericho II’s range varies from 1,500 to 3,500 kilometres, depending on payload weight. They are deployed in underground caves and silos. Israel has several satellites in orbit - Ofeq-1 through Ofeq-5 - that were launched by Shavit space launch vehicles (SLV). The first two stages of the Shavit were Jericho II missiles. There are unconfirmed reports of an upgraded Jericho-3 missile with a range of over 3,000 kilometres.

'Powerful' volcano eruption in Russia's far east Tue May 9, 6:52 AM ET MOSCOW
(AFP) - A volcano on the Kamchatka peninsula in far eastern Russia has erupted in a powerful explosion that spewed smoke and ash up to 15 kilometres (nine miles) into the air and sent red-hot lava flowing down the volcano's slopes, news agencies reported. The eruption on Tuesday posed no immediate danger to populated areas on the remote peninsula but aircraft were advised to skirt far around the vicinity while authorities said tourists and hunters should not approach any closer than 20 kilometres (12 miles) to the volcano, ITAR-TASS said.
A massive cloud from the eruption was blowing east over the Pacific Ocean at an altitude of around eight kilometers (five miles) and had already spread over a distance of up to 700 kilometers (435 miles), the agency said, quoting experts at the Russian Academy of Sciences. The volcano, known by the name of No Name, sits amid a group of 28 volcanos in the central portion of the Kamchatka peninsula and is the most active among them, erupting once or twice a year on average, RIA Novosti said. Ash from an eruption from the No Name volcano in 2004 was detected in the US Aleutian Islands off the coast of Alaska.

Al Qaeda attack on Canada 'probable': CSIS Updated Tue. May. 9 2006 11:32 PM ET Canadian Press.
OTTAWA -- While the threat from al Qaeda remains strongest overseas, a terrorist attack on Canadian soil is "now probable," the head of Canada's spy agency has quietly advised the government. In his annual report to the public safety minister, Jim Judd says the Canadian Security Intelligence Service's highest priority involved trying to prevent assaults occurring in, or originating from, Canada. The threat of further attacks by Sunni Islamic extremists and other like-minded groups continues, bringing with it elevated demands on the service's resources," says the report, which covers the year 2004-05.
A focus of the intelligence service's counter-terrorism program "was therefore the interdiction and removal" of such radicals. During the past year, Canada and Canadian interests abroad continued to be under threat from al Qaeda and its affiliated groups," Judd says. While the threat remains concentrated overseas, an attack on Canadian soil is now probable. Judd's comments represent some of the strongest language used by a senior Canadian official to date in characterizing the threat from Osama bin Laden's al Qaeda network.
A declassified copy of the top secret report was obtained Tuesday by The Canadian Press under the Access to Information Act. It was delivered by hand in late November to then-public safety minister Anne McLellan, later defeated in the January election. Al Qaeda, which perpetrated the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks on the United States, included Canada on a list of target countries in both November 2002 and March 2004. Canadian soldiers in Afghanistan have come under repeated attack from al Qaeda and Taliban elements opposed to the new western-supported government in Kabul.
Stephen Rigby, acting national security adviser to Prime Minister Harper, said Tuesday the government ismaintaining "a very high degree of vigilance" with respect to al Qaeda. We're just trying to increase the level of sophistication as to how we refine that consideration of the threat, where it might come, how it might come," Rigby said after speaking to a conference on national security. For instance, federal officials pay "a lot more" attention to the possibility of a strike on transit systems following the deadly terrorist assaults on commuters in Madrid and London, he said.
That extends to closely examining the explosive devices used by extremists in these attacks. We study those, and we sort of consider various scenarios in which they might be used in Canada," Rigby said. "We try to develop the most refined threat scenarios that we can. Rigby said, however, that Canadian officials have "no specific evidence" of a plot at this time. Transport Canada's John Forster told the meeting, sponsored by the Conference Board of Canada, that transportation systems have figured in one way or another in almost every major terrorist attack during the last 30 years. So, unfortunately, there's no reason to believe that this troubling reality will change," said Forster.
One concern is that terrorists might set off a "dirty bomb" - a conventional explosive laced with radiological material that could contaminate several city blocks. Judd's report says the spy service's counter-proliferation branch, which tries to prevent the spread of weapons of mass destruction, "continued to investigate Shiite and state-sponsored terrorism," as well as the activities of certain unnamed foreign governments. The report also stresses the service's involvement in security screening, namely the vetting of visitors to Canada, refugee claimants, immigrants, prospective citizens and employees who work at sensitive government jobs and installations such as nuclear plants and airports.

Crews Continue To Battle Florida Fires A forecaster says a bit of rain falling in Florida "may temporarily improve the situation" for firefighters.
NEW SMYRNA BEACH, Fla. (AP) -- But the National Weather Service forecaster says the rain likely won't bring long-term help in stamping out dozens of brush fires that have burned more than eight-thousand acres. A spokeswoman for New Smyrna Beach says the region needs "a tremendous amount of rain to get back to normal. Despite the work of more than a hundred
firefighters, at least one house is gone and a thousand people have been chased out.
Rita McSweeney says she could see a black, black sky lit by "fire engine red" flames before she fled her Florida home. Another evacuee, Edward Beazley, tells the Daytona Beach News-Dispatch that many New Smyrna Beach neighbors left lawn sprinklers running before getting away from the brush fires. Parts of I-95 have been closed off-and-on because of thick
smoke. The highway reopened early Tuesday in Brevard and Volusia Counties. Authorities blame the smoke for a five-vehicle crash Sunday that killed two people.
(Copyright 2006 by The Associated Press. All Rights Reserved.) At least 14 dead in Iranian
floods Tue May 9, 1:25 PM ET TEHRAN
(AFP) - At least 14 people have reportedly drowned in flooding following torrential rains in northwestern Iran's Ardebil province. So far 14 people have been killed in the floods, three bodies have been retrieved, but the search is going on for the rest," a local official, Malek Jafarzadeh, was quoted by the state news agency IRNA as saying.
State television had reported that some 700 homes were seriously damaged or destroyed and some 9,000 livestock perished as a result of heavy rains which began Monday. With around 8,000 hectares of farmland also washed away, the cost of the damage has been put at around 150 billion rials (16 million dollars).
PA CHRISTIAN ZIONISTS SATAN WORSHIPPERS
And in Story 2 a Minor Quake in California.
The following article, written by a senior Palestinian Authority religious figure and placed on the website of the PA Supreme [Islamic] Judicial Council, attacks Christian Zionists for adopting "Satan as God" and deviating "from the true Christian faith.
Christian Zionists are presented as a danger to Muslims and the world, and the PA Religious leader calls for their expulsion by the "World Church." Zionist-Christian motivation is said to be "Crusader motivation" and was behind not only the "cursed Balfour Declaration" but is today "behind the British and American policy in Palestine, Iraq, Afghanistan, and other Arab and
It should be noted that the writer Hamed Al-Tamimi, a member of the Supreme Judicial Council, was appointed to his position of religious leadership before the Hamas came to power in the PA. The following is the text as it appears today on the website of the Supreme [Islamic] Judicial Council:Christian Zionism /by Hamed Al-Tamimi - Director Inter Religion Dialogue Department, member of the Supreme Judicial Council.
Very few people know the truth about this [Christian Zionist] movement, which unconditionally supports the Zionist enemy,(ISRAEL) and unconditionally opposes Islam and the Muslims… Their association and their organizations, headed by The International Christian Embassy in Jerusalem," carry out their criminal activities against the Palestinian issue and the Palestinian people, as Walter Riggans, the Secretary-General of the International Christian Embassy, proudly and defiantly announced:
We are more Zionist than the Israelis" … And even if the sides of this hated- malicious alliance [of Israelis and Christian Zionists] have different goals, they both agree on hatred of Islam and the Muslims and on [the goal] to destroy them…The Zionist-Christian motivation, in addition to imperialist motivation, was behind the cursed Balfour Declaration -Balfour and Prime Minister Lloyd George were Christian Zionists -…and the truth is we should not deny [that] these Crusader motivations stand [today] behind the British and American policy in Palestine, Iraq, Afghanistan, and other Arab and Muslim countries.
We choose [to quote from] the following lecture, by the Doctor Priest Riad Jarjour, the Secretary-General of the Middle-Eastern Churches Committee… to shed light on this destructive [Christian Zionist] movement that together with her Zionist Jewish ally comprise the greatest danger to world truth, justice, and peace.
Hence there is no place in the Middle East for Christian Zionism, it must be expelled by the World Church, since it is a dangerous distortion and a big deviation from the true Christian faith, which concentrates on Jesus, and it [Christian Zionism] defends a national political program which considers the Jewish race supreme…They [Christian Zionists] are a group who
adopted Satan as God who drives their crazy nature.
They have praised depravity and cursed virtue, they have turned the moral scale upside down and have reached [a point] in which forgery, deception, and lying, have turned into descriptions of world policy, which is led by the Zionism on both its branches - the Jewish and the Christian.

JULY IRAN SWITCHES TO EUROS IN OIL
Already the Gas prices are affecting the World economy just wait till Iran switches in July, it should start the inflation the Bible says will occur in the last days and then the EU will take control of the World eonomy when the crash comes in the future.
Iran seeks euro-denominated oil market. Saturday, May 06, 2006 - ©2005
IranMania.com LONDON, May 6 (IranMania) - Iran's Oil Ministry took a step toward establishing an oil trading market denominated in euros, rather than the US dollar, by granting a license for the bourse, Iranian state-run television reported. Just who would trade on the market wasn't immediately apparent. Iranian television did not mention traders or governments willing to market or purchase products on the exchange, nor did it say when it would open for business, the Associated Press (AP) reported.
Iran has registered an oil bourse on the Persian Gulf island of Kish in which oil would be sold in euros," the broadcast said. Kish, located off the coast of southern Iran, houses the offices of some 100 Iranian and foreign oil companies. Oil trading is currently only conducted in dollars on markets in New York and London.
According to AP, Iranian legislators earlier this year urged the government to set up the market to reduce the United States' influence over the Islamic republic's economy. They also criticized Oil Minister Sayed Kazem Vaziri Hamaneh, saying he had delayed setting up the bourse. If the market succeeds, observers say euro-denominated oil sales could eventually convince
central bankers to convert some US dollar reserves into euros, possibly causing a decline in the dollar's value.
First floated in 2004 when reformist president Mohammad Khatami was in power, the idea of a euros-traded oil bourse gained new life after the stridently nationalist Mahmoud Ahmadinejad was elected president last summer, AP pointed out. As the fourth-largest oil producing country in the world, the second in the Organization of Petroleum Exporting countries and controlling about 5 percent of the global oil supply, Iran has a measure of influence over international oil markets. Tehran also partially controls the Persian Gulf's Strait of Hormuz through which much of the world's oil supply must pass, AP added.
Iran has sought to wield its oil resources as a bargaining tool in Tehran's ongoing standoff with the West over its nuclear program. Iran's deputy oil minister, M.H. Nejad Hosseinian, said Thursday he doubted the UN Security Council would impose sanctions on Iran's oil sector because such a move would drive oil prices higher, AP stated. Council members are considering
imposing sanctions on Iran for defying their request to halt all uranium enrichment-related activities by late last month.
CHENEY EU NATO EXPAND
Cheney backs Balkan Nato-EU bids
US support is seen as crucial for Nato membership US Vice-President Dick Cheney has supported the attempts of three Balkan countries - Albania, Croatia and Macedonia - to
join Nato and the EU. He told the leaders of the three countries that their membership would help rejuvenate the two blocs. Nato and the EU are seen as stabilising factors in the region, especially after the devastating wars of the 1990s. Mr Cheney is on the final leg of a European tour that also took him to Lithuania and Kazakhstan. In a speech in Vilnius, he accused Russia
of backsliding on democracy.
Croatia began accession talks with the EU in October and hopes to join by 2009. Croatia, Macedonia and Albania signed an agreement with the US in May 2003, called the Adriatic Charter, which is designed to facilitate their integration into the Nato alliance. The US vice-president attended a conference of the Atlantic Charter in the Croatian city of Dubrovnik. You who aspire to join these organisations help rejuvenate them Dick Cheney US Vice-President.
He praised the former Communist countries for their willingness to introduce democratic reforms - as well as for their involvement in US-led military operations in Iraq or Afghanistan. You who aspire to join these organisations [Nato and the EU] help rejuvenate them and help us re-dedicate ourselves to the basic and fundamental values of freedom and democracy," Mr Cheney told Ivo Sanader of Croatia, Sali Berisha of Albania and Vlado Buckovski of Macedonia.
We also believe that it's very important for both Nato and the EU to take in the new members. Membership of Nato and the EU have been key targets for many Balkan countries. Such high profile support from the US vice-president is very welcome, especially from governments which have sometimes been criticised domestically for their support of US foreign policy, says the BBC's Nick Hawton in Belgrade. On the first leg of his trip, Mr Cheney delivered one of the sharpest US rebukes to Russia in years during a speech at an eastern European regional summit in Vilnius, the Lithuanian capital. He accused Russia of using its vast energy resources to blackmail its neighbours, and said Moscow had a choice to make between pursuing democratic reforms and reversing the gains of the past decade. Russia rejected Mr Cheney's remarks as "completely incomprehensible.
102 dead after four months of heavy rains in Colombia 1 hour, 48 minutes ago
BOGOTA (AFP) - Heavy rains and flooding since the beginning of the year have killed 102 people and damaged thousand of homes across much of Colombia, according to state rescue agency Socorro Nacional. On Sunday, four more people died in a landslide in a poor Bogota neighborhood, and much of the capital remains under emergency warning due to elevated river
levels. Socorro Nacional deputy director Carlos Ivan Marquez said that in addition to the dead, the heavy rains since January have completely destroyed 943 homes and damaged more than 7,100 in the country, affecting about 82,400 people.
The rains have affected thousands of farms and infrastructure and families in remote and high-risk areas, hitting them hard economically," Marquez said. Max Henriquez, deputy director of the state hydrology and meteorology agency, said the rains will continue to batter much of Colombia, with the agency predicting another five weeks. There is an alert for all of the
departments in the center of the country for sudden rises in upland rivers and landslides," he said.
2 Undersea Earthquakes Rock Indonesia Mon May 8, 8:43 AM ET JAKARTA, Indonesia
Two undersea earthquakes rocked Indonesia's Sumatra island Monday, but caused no casualties or damage, an official said. A 5.6-magnitude tremor 20 miles undersea in the Indian Ocean struck at 8:43 a.m. (9:43 p.m. Sunday) about 25 miles south of Tapaktuan town in Aceh province, said Sahnan Sobri of the Meteorological and Geophysics Agency in Banda Aceh.
He said the second earthquake, of 5.4 magnitude, struck at 5:16 a.m. It was centered about 21 miles below the sea and 80 miles southwest of Bengkulu city on the southern Sumatra Island. Both tremors caused people run in panic but there were no reports of damage, casualties or tsunami, Sobri said. A 9.1-magnitude earthquake struck off the coast of Sumatra on Dec. 26,
2004, triggering a massive tsunami that left 216,000 people dead or missing in 12 countries around the Indian Ocean — three-quarters of them in nearby Aceh province.

UFOS GOOD BAD ANGELS
In the Future, at the midpoint of the tribulation period theres a war in the heavenlies, were Michael and the good angels fight Satan and his Angels. Satan and his Angels lose, and get cast to the earth. This ends Satans rule of the heavenlies and he only has rule on earth for 3 1/2 years before he gets locked in the pit for 1000 years.
At the end of the 1000 yr Reign of Christ, Satan is loosed to test all the children born during this time, to see if they will rebel against JESUS. The bible says many, many will still rebel even though JESUS has been ruling from Jerusalem for a thousand years. But fire comes from heaven and kills these rebelers. Then the Great whit throne Judgement of sinners from the beggining of Adam till the end of the 1000 year rule of Christ. These Sinners will be cast in to the Lake of fire as well as Satan, Death and Hell. And True believers of Christ, and True believers of Israel rule forever on Earth with JESUS (GOD), no end.
7 And there was war in heaven: Michael (Israels Angel protector of war) and his angels(good Angels) fought against the dragon; and the dragon(Satan) fought and his angels,(bad demonic Angels).
8 And prevailed not; neither was their place found any more in heaven.(satan loses the heavenlies to Michael)
9 And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.
10 And I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, Now is come salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of his Christ: for the accuser of our brethren is cast down, which accused them before our God day and night.
11 And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death.
12 Therefore rejoice, ye heavens, and ye that dwell in them. Woe to the inhabiters of the earth and of the sea! for the devil is come down unto you, having great wrath, because he knoweth that he hath but a short time.( 3 1/2 yrs only left)
13 And when the dragon saw that he was cast unto the earth, he persecuted the woman which brought forth the man child.(satan makes one final anti-semetic purge against Israel and saved Christians)
14 And to the woman were given two wings of a great eagle,(airplane) that she might fly into the wilderness, into her place, where she is nourished for a time, and times, and half a time, from the face of the serpent.(Israelis protected for this 3 1/2 yr period,some of them not all)
15 And the serpent cast out of his mouth water as a flood(Tsunami) after the woman, that he might cause her to be carried away of the flood.
16 And the earth helped the woman, and the earth opened her mouth, and swallowed up the flood which the dragon cast out of his mouth.
17 And the dragon(Satan) was wroth(mad) with the woman,(Israelis) and went to make war with the remnant of her seed, which keep the commandments of God, and have the testimony of Jesus Christ.
20 And the beast(World dictator with Satan in his body) was taken, and with him the false prophet(from the Vatican) that wrought miracles before him, with which he deceived them that had received the mark of the beast, and them that worshipped his image. These both were cast alive into a lake of fire burning with brimstone.
1 And I saw an angel come down from heaven, having the key of the bottomless pit and a great chain in his hand.
2 And he laid hold on the dragon, that old serpent, which is the Devil, and Satan, and bound him a thousand years,
3 And cast him into the bottomless pit, and shut him up, and set a seal upon him, that he should deceive the nations no more, till the thousand years should be fulfilled: and after that he must be loosed a little season.
4 And I saw thrones, and they sat upon them, and judgment was given unto them: and I saw the souls of them that were beheaded for the witness of Jesus, and for the word of God, and which had not worshipped the beast, neither his image, neither had received his mark upon their foreheads, or in their hands; and they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years.
5 But the rest of the dead lived not again until the thousand years were finished. This is the first resurrection.
6 Blessed and holy is he that hath part in the first resurrection: on such the second death hath no power, but they shall be priests of God and of Christ, and shall reign with him a thousand years.
7 And when the thousand years are expired, Satan shall be loosed out of his prison,
8 And shall go out to deceive the nations which are in the four quarters of the earth, Gog and Magog, to gather them together to battle: the number of whom is as the sand of the sea.
9 And they went up on the breadth of the earth, and compassed the camp of the saints about, and the beloved city: and fire came down from God out of heaven, and devoured them.
10 And the devil that deceived them was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet are, and shall be tormented day and night for ever and ever.
11 And I saw a great white throne, and him that sat on it, from whose face the earth and the heaven fled away; and there was found no place for them.
12 And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened: and another book was opened, which is the book of life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works.
13 And the sea gave up the dead which were in it; and death and hell delivered up the dead which were in them: and they were judged every man according to their works.
14 And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death.
15 And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire.
UFO study finds no sign of aliens Mark Simpson BBC News.
The 400-page report was kept secret for six years. Alleged UFO sightings A confidential Ministry of Defence report on Unidentified Flying Objects has concluded that there is no proof of alien life forms. In spite of the secrecy surrounding the UFO study, it seems citizens of planet Earth have little to worry about. The report, which was completed in 2000 and stamped "Secret: UK Eyes Only", has been made public for the first time. Only a small number of copies were produced and the identity of the man who wrote it has been protected. His findings were only made public thanks to the Freedom of Information Act, after a request by Sheffield Hallam University academic Dr David Clarke.
The four-year study - entitled Unidentified Aerial Phenomena in the UK - tackles the long-running question by UFO-spotters: Is anyone out there? The answer, it seems, is "no". Meteors may have been responsible for some UFO sightings. The 400-page report puts it like this: "No evidence exists to suggest that the phenomena seen are hostile or under any type of control, other than that of natural physical forces. It adds: "There is no evidence that 'solid' objects exist which could cause a collision hazard.
So if there are no such things as little green men in spaceships or flying saucers, why have so many people reported seeing them? Well, here is the science bit. Evidence suggests that meteors and their well-known effects and, possibly some other less-known effects are responsible for some unidentified aerial phenomena," concludes the report. Considerable evidence exists to support the thesis that the events are almost certainly attributable to physical, electrical and magnetic phenomena in the atmosphere, mesosphere and ionosphere. They appear to originate due to more than one set of weather and electrically-charged conditions and are observed so infrequently as to make them unique to the majority of observers.
People who claim to have had a "close encounter" are often difficult to persuade that they did not really see what they thought they saw. The report offers a possible medical explanation. The close proximity of plasma related fields can adversely affect a vehicle or person," states the report. Local fields of this type have been medically proven to cause responses in the temporal lobes of the human brain. These result in the observer sustaining (and later describing and retaining) his or her own vivid, but mainly incorrect, description of what is experienced. There are, of course, other causes of UFOs - aeroplanes with particularly bright lights, stray odd-shaped balloons and strange flocks of birds, to name but a few.
Future studies into this subject are unlikely
Yet, it will be difficult to convince everyone that there is a rational explanation for all mysterious movements in the sky. Some UFO-spotters believe governments will always cover up the truth about UFOs, because they are afraid of admitting that there is something beyond their control. It is not clear how much time and effort the MoD has spent looking at the skies in recent years, but it appears there are no plans for an in-depth UFO report like the one written in 2000.
A MoD spokesperson said: "Both this study and the original "Flying Saucer Working Party" [already in public domain in the national Archives] concluded that there is insufficient evidence to indicate the presence of any genuine unidentified aerial phenomena.

Scores hurt, houses damaged as strong quake hits southern Iran Sun May 7, 9:06 AM
ET TEHRAN (AFP) - At least 80 people were hurt and many homes damaged when a strong earthquake measuring 5.2 on the Richter scale jolted the town of Zarand in southern Iran's Kerman province. Twenty people have been hospitalised, and 60 were treated as outpatients," Zarand's governor, Hasan Rahmani, told state television Sunday. The quake struck the area at
9:50 am (0620 GMT). State television also cited fears than miners in the area could be trapped underground. The province has a number of copper, iron and coal mines.
The walls of many houses have been seriously damaged and it is anticipated that more than 60 percent of Zarand homes will no longer be inhabitable," official radio quoted a local official as saying. Iran is an earthquake-prone area. The worst quake in recent times hit Bam, also in Kerman province, in December 2003, killing 31,000 people. In late March, a powerful earthquake hit western Iran, killing at least 70 people and leaving thousands homeless. In February 2005, an earthquake with a magnitude of 6.4 on the Richter scale killed more than 600 in Zarand.
Crocs ply flood waters as killer Kenyan storms fry pelicans Sat May 6, 10:51 AM
ET NAIROBI (AFP) - Dozens of man-eating crocodiles plied flood waters along Kenya's Indian Ocean coast after heavy thunderstorms that killed at six people and fried nearly 50 pelicans. About 30 of the carnivorous reptiles were spotted swimming near children's playgrounds and municipal parks in Kilifi, frightening parents in the coastal town where floods have claimed at least six lives in the past week, officials said Saturday. We have confirmed that there are crocodiles in the flood waters that are fast approaching residential areas," Kilifi lawmaker Joe Khamisi told reporters in the town, about 550 kilometers (345 miles) southeast of Nairobi.
We fear they may harm children who like to swim," he said, adding that his constituents were worried the death toll might be higher due to the crocodiles, which slithered out of ponds and estuaries with the rising waters. The rains have exacerbated humanitarian crises brought about by a searing drought that has hit east Africa, inundating parched soil, bursting the banks of
dry rivers and forcing tens of thousands of people from their homes.The floods have also increased the risk of waterborne diseases, destroyed crops and hamperered delivery of drought relief by cutting off key roads used by humanitarian agencies across the country.
In addition to the human toll, lightning from a storm in the central Rift Valley town of Nakuru hit a tree where scores of pelicans
had taken roost, electrocuting at least 49 of the large-mouthed birds on Friday, officials said. The carcasses of the pelicans, among the tens of thousands of birds that flock to Kenya's famed Lake Nakuru National Park, littered the grassy area around the tree, said government veterinary official Michael Cheruyoit.
Thunderstorms Pound Parts of Texas Sat May 6, 2:39 PM ET
WACO, Texas - Thunderstorms with strong winds, heavy rain and a possible tornado uprooted trees, toppled power lines and damaged buildings in parts of Texas, officials said. No injuries were reported from the storms Friday night and early Saturday.In Waco, much of the damage appeared to be concentrated in an industrial area, where winds gusting at an estimated 80 mph
peeled off warehouse roofs and crumbled the walls at a Coca-Cola Co. bottling plant.
About 22,000 Waco residents still lacked power Saturday morning, said city spokesman Larry Holze. An expert was en route to determine whether a tornado or just strong winds caused the damage, said National Weather Service meteorologist Ted Ryan. In San Antonio, motorists stranded in high water had to be rescued.
