Binocular Snapshot for 2/04/2011

LastDayWatchers understand as you "Watch" the paradigm shift the May 15th Prophecy  told you would come with 100% accuracy, the words of the office to the estate

Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, says recent anti-government riots in Tunisia and Egypt are "a sign of the awakening of Islam inspired by the Islamic Revolution's victory in Iran

"He accused Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak of "cooperating with the Zionists" and helping Israel impose its siege on the Gaza Strip.

"Egypt wouldn't let the aid convoy from Iran enter the area," he explained. "The main reason for the uprising is not just the economic situation, but the Egyptian people's feeling of humiliation."

The Iranian supreme leader said the events in Egypt would have far-reaching implication on the entire Middle East.

"This is an earthquake, and if the Egyptian people carry on they will defeat the American policy in the region. The Zionist enemies are more concerned than anyone else, as they are aware of what might happen if Egypt cut off the alliance with them."

Khamenei interpreted the Egypt uprising as a victory of the Islamic Republic's policy. 

"After years of struggle, the Iranian people see their voice is being heard loudly in other places in the Islamic world."

"Our revolution has succeeded in giving hope and setting an example, due to the stability and insistence on our principles while facing all the pressure," 

the Iranian supreme leader said.

He stressed that before the Islamic Revolution Iran was dependent on Western powers, but that after the revolution the country became independent and no power has the ability to affect the Iranian people's desires.

Khamenei added that although the West was trying to boycott the export of fuel to Iran, 

"I have received reports that in the coming days Iran will become an independent fuel manufacturer and even a fuel exporter."

According to the supreme leader, 

"Today the entire world knows that despite the pressure they exerted, America, Europe and their allies have been unsuccessful in beating Iran in the nuclear issue."

Khamenei's speech was broadcast live on Iranian TV on a split screen, alongside a live broadcast from Cairo's Tahrir Square, where protestors where calling on President Hosni Mubarak to resign"

"Iran’s supreme religious leader spoke out about Egypt’s antiregime protests Friday, declaring an “Islamic awakening” across the region that is resulting in the “irreparable defeat” of American and Israeli influence"

Ayatollah Sayyed Ali Khamenei, addressing Egyptians in Arabic after delivering the Friday prayer sermon in Tehran, portrayed himself as

“your brother in religion,” while praising the “explosion of sacred anger” and warning against any US role in the outcome.

Describing close US ally President Hosni Mubarak as a “traitor dictator” who is working for Israel and guilty of “great betrayal” of Egyptians

“Do not believe in the game which is being played by the West and America; don’t believe in their role, don’t believe in their political maneuvers which are taking place in the midst of your awakening,”

Khamenei warned Egyptians from the pulpit at Tehran University.

“Just a few days ago … the Americans were supporting the corrupt regime, and now after they are sick of preserving him, they are speaking about the rights of the people,” said Khamenei. “They are trying to replace one spy with another…. Look with doubt – always be suspicious – regarding the American role and American intervention,"

he said.

“The enemy is striving by force and by tricks, the enemy is trying to harm your will, to destroy your will,”

Khamenei warned Egyptians, according to a simultaneous translation on Iran’s state-run PressTV.

“The enemy is trying to create despair, to make you believe you can’t achieve your aims. However, the promise of God says that we want to help those who were oppressed in the land…to achieve their aims, so be sure, be totally confident, in the promise of God,”

said Khamenei.

“The enemy is using its security forces against you, in order to put fear and intimidation in your hearts, and to create chaos,”

Iran’s supreme leader added.

“Do not fear them, you are stronger than these people who have been paid for.”

Khamenei also claimed that foreign media that had

“always” tried to tarnish Iran’s image, and “say that Iran wants to intervene … these are lies which have filled our ears for 30 years.”

Foreign Minister Ali Akbar Salehi said this week “we are going along with the freedom seekers of the world.”

“The policies of the United State have been defeated in North Africa and the Middle East,” said Rahim Safavi, the former head of Iran’s Revolutionary Guard. “The popular revolution in Egypt is inspired by the Islamic revolution [of Iran] and doubtlessly the destiny of the dictator of Egypt will be like the dictator of Iran.”

it has been hard-line stalwarts in Iran who have crowed their support of the Egyptian protesters, despite their hostility to similar events at home in Iran."

"The awakening of the Islamic Egyptian people is an Islamic liberation movement and I, in the name of the Iranian government, salute the Egyptian people and the Tunisian people,"

He said events in Tunisia and Egypt, were a sign of "Islamic awareness" in the region and that these movements will spell an "irreparable defeat" for the United States.

Khamenei added that the Egypt's embattled president, Hosni Mubarak, is a "servant" of Israel and the United States.

"For 30 years this country [Egypt] has been in the hands of someone who is not seeking freedom and is the enemy of those seeking freedom.

"Not only he is not anti-Zionist, but he is the companion, colleague, confidant and servant of Zionists. It is a fact that Hosni Mubarak's servitude to America has been unable to take Egypt one step towards prosperity."

The spiritual leader's remarks were received by cheering crowds of worshippers who, raising their hands, chanted "Death to America! Death to Israel!"

The sermon marked the first time in seven months that the leader has addressed the weekly Friday prayers, and came as protesters were massing in Egypt to participate in "departure day" demonstrations to force Mubarak to quit.

"Today's events in North Africa, Egypt and Tunisia and some other countries have different meanings for us," 

Khamenei said.

"This is what was always talked about as the occurrence of Islamic awakening at the time of the Islamic revolution of the great Iranian nation and is showing itself today."

Khamenei said that Israel was the country most concerned about the Arab revolts.

"Today more than the fleeing Tunisian and Egyptian officials, Israelis and the Zionist enemies are the most worried about these events as they know if Egypt stops being their ally and take its rightful place, it would be a great event in the region," he said.

Dorsa Jabbari, Al Jazeera's correspondent in Tehran, said Khamenei 

"is asking them to follow through what he is calling a real earthquake in the region".

The Iranian people are supporting the uprising in Egypt as 

"they believe that it has been long time in the making and it is about time that [the Egyptian] people put an end to the dictatorship in their country", 

our correspondent said.

"They [the Iranians] see the events as extremely significant as they feel that it is the opportunity to change the religious field in the region."

Iranian supreme leader urges Egyptians to follow in the footsteps of Iran's 1979 revolution."

"Today, developments in North Africa, [including] Egypt, Tunisia and some other countries have a special meaning for the Iranian nation,”

the Leader stated.

“This is what was always referred to as the Islamic awakening created by the victory of the great Revolution of the Iranian nation,”

Ayatollah Khamenei said in the Friday Prayers sermons in Tehran

“In Tunisia, which is a Muslim nation with a long Islamic history with great Muslim scholars coming from Tunisia; people had to carry a special card to go to mosques under Ben Ali's rule, a card that the government did not give to everyone.”

The Leader further pointed to the Ben Ali regime's anti-Islam moves such as prohibiting collective and individual prayers in mosques and the hijab ban.

“As soon as this traitor (Ben Ali) fled, female students went to university wearing hijab,” Ayatollah Khamenei highlighted, saying the move indicates a deep Islamic motive among the Egyptians that Arab leaders have been trying to conceal.

The Leader described the Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak as the “lackey of the Zionist regime [of Israel].”

“Egypt in short periods in 1967 and 1973 was the first and largest country to engage in war over the issue of Palestine into was along with Syria. Other Muslim nations did not enter into these wars with Israel, but Egypt sent soldiers, army, people and aid to the battlefield but they were not succeed, however,”

the Leader recalled.

“Egypt was a sanctuary for Palestinians and even many of the revolutionaries from other countries, but such a nation has been in the past 30 years in the hands of a person who does not support liberation but opposes seeking liberation, who is not anti-Israeli but a colleague, confidant, and lackey of the Zionists,” the Leader regretted.

Ayatollah Khamenei noted how the Israeli leaders relied on Mubarak in all their anti-Palestinian moves, including the blockade of the Gaza Strip.

“On the issue of Gaza, if Mubarak did not help Israel, they would have never succeeded in besieging the territory.”

The Leader recalled how Mubarak prevented not only Egyptian aid convoys but also humanitarian fleets from other countries from crossing into the Gaza Strip while it was burning in the fire of an Israeli war in 2009.

“Of course the US and more than them Israelis are in great distress and are desperately seeking a solution to the crisis in Egypt, solution they will never find. Thus they have turned to deceiving people and pretend to support for people.”

Ayatollah Khamenei said that the Egyptian army would join the masses and line up against the enemy"

"They are trying to replace one spy with another. They are trying to focus the spotlight on certain faces to impose the rule of the spies on you. Do not accept anything less than an independent popular regime that believes in Islam,"

he said.

"If they (protesters) are able to push this through then what will happen to the U.S. policies in the region will be an irreparable defeat for America,"

he said, telling Arab peoples he was their "brother in religion".

"I call on God to help you and bring about victory for you. I feel proud for your awakening."

The 71-year-old Khamenei dismissed as "lies" any suggestion that Iran wanted to interfere in the region's affairs.

"The awakening of people is a war between two wills, the will of the people and the will of the enemies of the people,"

Khamenei called on the Egyptian army to back the protesters

"focus its eyes on the Zionist enemy"

a reference to Israel which fears a change of regime in Egypt could jeopardise its 1979 peace treaty with its neighbour to the west.

"If Egypt halts its alliance with (Israel) and takes its real position, what a great event will happen in the region. All the late Imam's prophecies will come true,"

he said, referring to Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini, the leader of Iran's revolution who called for popular uprisings throughout the Islamic world.

In a sermon punctuated with chants of "Death to America" from a congregation that included Ahmadinejad and other important political and military figures, Khamenei said: "Our revolution has been able to inspire hope, to set an example."

In his first public comments on the popular uprisings in the region, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei said Iran's 1979 revolution, which deposed the U.S.-backed shah and established an Islamic Republic, could serve as a pattern for the Arab uprisings.

"The awakening of the Islamic Egyptian people is an Islamic liberation movement and I, in the name of the Iranian government, salute the Egyptian people and the Tunisian people,"

Khamenei told worshippers at Friday prayers in Tehran."

“America’s control over Egypt’s leaders has ... turned Egypt into the biggest enemy of Palestine and turned it into the greatest refuge for Zionists,”

Khamenei said.

“This explosion we see among the people of Egypt is the appropriate response to this great betrayal that the traitor dictator committed against his people,”Khamenei said"

When you have understanding and know the meaning to God's Word

Egypt holds 'Day of Departure'

Hundreds of thousands of protesters have gathered in Cairo's Tahrir Square in what has been a largely peaceful protest, calling for Hosni Mubarak, the Egyptian president, to stand down.

The square, which has been the focal point of protests in Egypt, saw demonstrators observe what they have termed a "Day of Departure" for the man who has been the country's leader for the last 30 years.

As the country entered its eleventh day of unrest, mass demonstrations commenced after Friday prayers.

Protests were also seen in the cities of Alexandria, Mahalla and Giza.

Protests continued into the night, in defiance of a curfew that has not been observed since it was first enforced last week.

One protester in Cairo told Al Jazeera that demonstrators would continue protesting until Mubarak steps down.

"It's either death, or freedom," he said.

Ahmed Shafiq, Egypt's new prime minister, however, said on Friday that Mubarak would not be handing over powers to Omar Suleiman, the vice-president, before the September elections. In statements carried by the official MENA news agency, Shafiq "ruled out" an early exit for Mubarak"

Egyptian throngs have a word for Mubarak: 'Leave!'

"Thousands of anti-government demonstrators rallied in the capital's center demanding their president step down after days of protest and violence that have shaken the Arab world.

"Leave! Leave!" the waves of protesters roared, pumping their fists at the end of Friday prayers as a helicopter buzzed over head. "We are not leaving. You are leaving," they yelled, drowning out the helicopter's drone.

"Nobody knows what will happen here," said Said Khirallah, a 52-year-old school administrator and a father of three. "We are peaceful, but we will defend this square with our bodies.

"The Egyptian citizen is humiliated. I want a free country for my kids, and this is a way to find our dignity again."

Prime Minister Ahmed Shafik, in remarks made on state television Friday and rebroadcast by the Al Arabiya network, predicted Mubarak probably would not turn over power to Suleiman"

Tens of thousands turn out for rival rallies in Yemen

"Large competing rallies for and against the longtime leader of Yemen unfolded Thursday without incident in one of the Arab world's poorest, most volatile and violent nations.

The Arabian Peninsula nation's opposition, inspired by the revolt in Tunisia and the ongoing uprising against President Hosni Mubarak in Egypt, had called for a "day of rage" against the rule of President Ali Abdullah Saleh

who has held his title since 1978 and has been accused of corruption and mismanagement. Saleh and his supporters sought to upstage the protesters by holding a simultaneous counter-demonstration across town.

That act of protest and desperation sparked the Tunisian uprising that toppled Ben Ali and captivated the Arab world, especially the poor, frustrated young working class men largely discarded by political elites.

"We are demanding life itself, because under the conditions of the country now, we're just not living," 

Yusuf Amri, a labor activist, said at Thursday's rally."

It's not radical Islam that worries the US – it's independence

A common refrain among pundits is that fear of radical Islam requires (reluctant) opposition to democracy on pragmatic grounds. While not without some merit, the formulation is misleading.

The general threat has always been independence. The US and its allies have regularly supported radical Islamists, sometimes to prevent the threat of secular nationalism.

A familiar example is Saudi Arabia, the ideological centre of radical Islam (and of Islamic terror). Another in a long list is Zia ul-Haq, the most brutal of Pakistan's dictators and President Reagan's favorite, who carried out a programme of radical Islamisation (with Saudi funding).

"The traditional argument put forward in and out of the Arab world is that there is nothing wrong, everything is under control,"

says Marwan Muasher, a former Jordanian official and now director of Middle East research for the Carnegie Endowment.

"With this line of thinking, entrenched forces argue that opponents and outsiders calling for reform are exaggerating the conditions on the ground."

Unmentioned is what the population thinks – easily discovered. According to polls released by the Brookings Institution in August

they regard the US and Israel as the major threats (77%; 88%)

Arab opinion is so hostile to Washington's policies that a majority (57%) think regional security would be enhanced if Iran had nuclear weapons. Still, "there is nothing wrong, everything is under control" (as Muasher describes the prevailing fantasy). The dictators support us.

Their subjects can be ignored – unless they break their chains, and then policy must be adjusted

cables reveal that the US embassy is well aware that

Washington's war in Afghanistan and Pakistan not only intensifies rampant anti-Americanism but also "risks destabilising the Pakistani state"

and even raises a threat of the ultimate nightmare: that nuclear weapons might fall into the hands of Islamic terrorists.

Again, the revelations "should create a comforting feeling … that officials are not asleep at the switch" (Heilbrunn's words) – while Washington marches stalwartly toward disaster."

God's Word will show you things & events that this world is blind too

"These events should not have come upon us with the surprise that they did,"

the committee's chairwoman, Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., said in an interview.

"There should have been much more warning" of the revolts in Tunisia and Egypt"

she said, in part because demonstrators were using the Internet and social media to organize

"Was someone looking at what was going on the Internet?"

she asked.

"Both the American and Israeli intelligence communities will have to ask themselves what they missed in Tunisia and Egypt,"

said former CIA officer Bruce Riedel.

"Are we too fixated on terrorism and Iran today and not enough on the broad generational changes in the region?"

As God's Word spoken of in the May 15th Prophecy revels with 100% accuracy what is really coming down the pipe for the U.S. indeed the world economy

US employment figures disappoint

Increase in jobs well below expectations despite rise in US corporate profits

"The stuttering recovery in the US economy is expected to continue after employment rose by a lacklustre 36,000 in January, well below expectations of 145,000 for the month.

After some positive signs from higher corporate profits and strong growth in manufacturing, analysts had expected an improvement on the 121,000 jump in payroll numbers in December. 

However, the unemployment rate fell from 9.4% to 9%, its lowest level since April 2009, and the government revised the November and December figures to show 40,000 more jobs created that previously estimated.

In the summer last year the US economy had begun to add more than 400,000 jobs a month before suffering a reversal in the autumn. 

A rise of around 200,000 in November appeared to signal a resurgent economy, but has proved a false dawn as jobs growth has slowed again.

The figures will be studied closely by 

The Federal Reserve, which has argued it needs to pump further liquidity into the economy through its $600bn (£372bn) quantitative easing programme to boost confidence and employment

Rob Carnell of ING said the figures disguised some disturbing trends. He picked out that hours worked fell on average by 0.1 hours, and aggregate hours worked were also lower.

He said:

"One might be tempted to read something positive also from the fall in the unemployment rate from 9.4% to 9%. But despite a 117,000 gain in employment measured by the household survey in Jan, most of this fall in the unemployment rate was the result of a further 507,000 decline in the civilian labour force, which contributed most of the 622,000 decline in 'unemployment' this month. Moreover, adding to the sense that all is not entirely well with the US labour force, the average duration of unemployment continues to drift higher."

Getting Iran Right

"Much of the American public discourse on Iran exhibits a couple of unfortunate characteristics.

One is a demonization of Iran that fosters emotion over analysis

and that encourages absolutism of the “must prevent through whatever means necessary” sort while discouraging more sober assessment of costs and benefits of different courses of action.

The other is a remarkably narrow focus on one issue—Iran's nuclear program—and even more narrowly on one aspect of that program: the enrichment of uranium.

This is a classic case of goal substitution, as if spinning centrifuges were a surrogate for everything that matters in the relationship of the United States and Iran. If we could somehow rid the discourse of these unhelpful attributes it would greatly improve the climate for arriving at a sound policy toward the Islamic republic."
