    Maybe, maybe not. But it does at least look like it is shaping up to be a very interesting day in the diplomatic world - provided we all don't get incinerated in a nuclear holocaust.​


    August 22 - Iran’s Military Exercise and Apocalyptic Plans for Israel and World​

    DEBKAfile Special Report
    August 20, 2006, 1:22 AM (GMT+02:00)​

    [​IMG][​IMG]Washington is keeping a sharp weather eye out for Tuesday, August 22, which this year corresponds in the Islamic calendar to the date on which many Sunni Muslims commemorate the night flight of the prophet Muhammad on his winged horse Buraq to “the farthest mosque”, which is traditionally identified with Jerusalem.

    According to the Muslim legend, on that day, a divine white light spread over Jerusalem and the whole world.

    DEBKAfile’s intelligence sources report that information rated “highly credible” has reached US undercover agencies of a secret report presented to Iran’s supreme ruler Ali Khamenei by Abdollah Shabhazi, one of the heads of the Supreme National Security Council. He claims to expose a mega-terror plot against Jerusalem scheduled for August 22, which aims at killing large numbers of Jews, Arabs and Christians.

    This atrocity will reportedly arm the United States and Israel with the pretext for hitting Iran’s nuclear installations, as well its capital, Tehran, and other big cities.

    Shabhazi says the US and Israel need to launch a military campaign to restore the deterrent strength they lost in the Lebanon war.
    The massive attack will reportedly focus on the Old City of Jerusalem and its eastern suburbs. The Iranian report claims that the plotters, who are not identified, are eager to recreate the divine white light whish spread over Jerusalem in the year 632. It does not rule out the use of a non-conventional weapon.

    DEBKAfile reports that the authorities in Israel do not appear to be taking this threat seriously, unlike Washington – and Tehran.

    No. The world will not end. There will be a new heaven and a new earth one day, but that is at least 1007 years away. :)

    If it does, that'll be my best birthday yet. In heaven, with my Lord and Savior, and all the angels, and the Father, the Spirit, Mark, Luke, Timothy, and all the saints of all ages.

    Let it end. It won't hurt my feelings. I know it's selfish, but my wife, my girls and I are ready. "Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus."

    I will take a stab at Lady Eagle's 1007.

    Say Christ comes today for His Bride. Following is the 7 year tribulation period. Then Christ comes back to set up His Millenial Kingdom. Then, the new heaven and the new earth.

    Everyone knows the world as we know it will end on Sept (12th?), 2012, as the Mayan calander has predicted.

    Actually, the date is December 21, 2012. From what I can find out it is actually a prediction of a new era - a golden age - rather than the end of the world.

    Personally, I had best remember that date as it will be, the Lord willing, my wife's 52nd birthday. If I forget about it, then it might be the end of the world for me. :)

    I would think it a good rule to not trust the predictions of an extinct civilisation...

    I'll bet you $5000 it won't.
    However, gambling probably isn't allowed on this site in such a way as to be a party thereto. And in the highly improbable case that I lose, I won't have any use for the money anyway, nor would you even if you do collect it. I reluctantly admit it is an unfair wager.

    Since you just gave your wife's age on a public forum, it might be the end of the world for you sooner than you think! :laugh:

    This is an interesting development:

    http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/world/middle_east/5271344.stm

    In the article Iran's supreme leader, Ali Khamenei, has said his country will press ahead with its nuclear programme. says:


    He said Iran said it would give a "multi-faceted response" to the international incentives proposal, but did not elaborate. Iran has said that it will respond to any possible sanctions with a painful response - which may involve a cut in its oil production.

    So, what is every one doing on the last day of civilisation as we know it?

    As the world crumbles around us will the BB still function?
