In an earthshaking Middle East development, the United States has begun secretly evacuating the tactical nuclear weapons it had stockpiled at the southern Turkish air base of Incirlik and is transporting them to US bases in Romania.The Obama administration has thus taken another step towards folding its tents in the Middle East.In contrast, Moscow is rapidly expanding its air force footprint in the region with a new base in Iran following its facility in Syria. Advanced bombers and fighters are stepping up operations in both countries, while Russian warships carrying Kalibr cruise missiles gather in the Mediterranean and Caspian Seas.DEBKAfile’s military and intelligence sources report that Washington decided to remove the nuclear arsenal to safety after talks between American and Turkish talks on release 1,500 US airmen serving at the base from the siege clamped down a month ago broke down. The airmen were running the US air campaign against ISIS in in Syria just 112km away.
The document written by the Interior Ministry was a confidential answer to a question posed by Die Linke (the Left Party) in the German parliament (Bundestag). “The numerous affirmations of solidarity and support for the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt, for Hamas and for armed Islamist opposition groups in Syria by the ruling AKP party and president Erdogan underscore their ideological affinity to their Muslim brothers,” the document states, cited by The Local.
A senior member of the Russian parliament, Viktor Ozerov, has suggested that Ankara invite the Russian air force to operate from Turkey’s Incirlik airbase, which is used by the US-led coalition against ISIS. The base built mostly from US and NATO budgets also holds several dozen US tactical nuclear bombs. Ozerov, a member of the Russian parliament’s defense and security committee, was quoted on Tuesday as saying “It is not guaranteed that Russia needs İncirlik, but such a decision could be regarded as Turkey’s real readiness to cooperate with Russia in the fight against terrorism in Syria.” He also said “Turkey can provide the Incirlik base to the Russian Aerospace Forces for its use in counterterrorism operations (in Syria). This can become a logical continuation of Turkish President Erdogan’s step toward Russia.”
Abbas to meet Erdogan by the end of the month / Times of Israel, August 15, 2016
Turkish and Palestinian leaders reportedly to discuss situation in Gaza and ‘the recent Israeli escalation in the region’
Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas is to meet with Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan by the end of the month for talks about the situation in the Gaza Strip and a French initiative for ending the conflict with Israel.
A senior Palestinian official told the Qatar-based Al Khaleej news site that the meeting will be part of a two-week international tour by Abbas covering Egypt, Jordan, France and other “Arab, Islamic and foreign countries.”
In the two men’s first meeting since a failed coup in Turkey last month, they will discuss Palestinian internal affairs, the Israeli- and Egyptian-imposed blockade of Gaza and what the official called “the recent Israeli escalation in the region.”
Abbas, said the official, wants to develop ties with Ankara, and the visit is aimed at strengthening bilateral relations.
Also reportedly under review will be a French peace initiative, as well as Palestinian intentions to appeal to the UN Security Council and the International Criminal Court against the Israeli occupation in the West Bank.
The official indicated that Abbas would welcome any efforts by Turkey to mediate between Israel and the Palestinians in light of the failure so far of French and Egyptian efforts.
We can see the makings of the Antichrist in Recep Erdogan, as the Bible shows that the Antichrist (or “Beast”) will be a peace maker and will be very wise in the beginning of his rule.
At first the Antichrist will seem to solve many of the world’s problems and he will be considered great in the eyes of most in the world.
The global powers have determined that national sovereignty is destined to fail. We already see this happening with the economic collapse, well under way. With governments crippled and devastated, and failed markets and banks, he will help bring about a “New World Order” – the only solution offered, and then the Mark of the Beast will rise from the ruins of internationally failed economies.
Erdogan Threatens To Abandon US Dollar In Trade With Russia / Zerohedge, August 11, 2016
But perhaps the most notable development was reported today by Turkey’s Gunes newspaper, which said that as part of the discussion between Putin and Erdogan on Tuesday, the Turkish president suggested to abandon the US dollar in bilateral trade between Turkey and Russia, and instead to transact directly in lira and rubles. This would “benefit both Russia and Turkey”, Erdogan allegedly said in his August 9 meeting in St Petersburg, adding that this would relieve the lira from the USD’s upward pressure. The reason Erdogan is concerned about exchange rates is because recently Turkish inflation soared by nearly 8% Y/Y, and the recent devaluation of the TRY against the USD has only poured more oil on the fire.
BRICS Could Give Up on the Dollar, But With ‘Dramatic Geopolitical Consequences’ / Sputnik News, August 17, 2016
The BRICS countries (Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa) remain potent players in the global market. Their economic potential is far from exhausted and the US dollar is already feeling the pinch, German economist Ernst Wolff told Sputnik.
Ernst Wolf said that the BRICS Bank was putting on muscle and that the US was becoming increasingly wary of this.
“The problem is, however, that the New Development Bank is working as part of the dollar system where the US Federal Reserve enjoys the exclusive right to print dollars. This is how the Americans have managed to bring the whole world to heel,” Ernst Wolff emphasized.
Alternate world currency?
“This is something the Americans are trying to prevent. There have been attempts to break free from this dollar system. Saddam Hussein wanted to sell his oil for euros. Muammar Gaddafi wanted to introduce a gold denominated currency. Both these attempts fell though and their authors are dead. Which means that the Americans are ready to go at any length to keep this system intact,” Wolff noted.
He also warned about the “dramatic geopolitical consequences” of attempts to phase out the dollar.
Ezekiel chapters 38-39 that prophesy that Russia, along with several Arab and North African nations, will rally together in these last days and mount a massive military operation against the Nation of Israel. Ezekiel prophesies that a “hook in the jaw” will be placed in Russia’s mouth and she will be dragged into this war. This Ezekiel war is being prepared right now.
What will happen next? Does the Bible give us clues?
The Bible describes this imminent battle in exacting detail:
Now the word of the Lord came to me, saying, “Son of man, set your face against Gog, of the land of Magog, the prince of Rosh, Meshech, and Tubal, and prophesy against him, and say, ‘Thus says the Lord God: Behold, I am against you, O Gog, the prince of Rosh, Meshech, and Tubal. I will turn you around, put hooks into your jaws, and lead you out, with all your army, horses, and horsemen, all splendidly clothed, a great company with bucklers and shields, all of them handling swords. Persia,Ethiopia, and Libya are with them, all of them with shield and helmet; Gomer and all its troops; the house of Togarmah from the far north and all its troops-many people are with you. (Ezekiel 38:1-6)
“And it will come to pass at the same time, when Gog comes against the land of Israel,” says the Lord God, “that My fury will show in My face. For in My jealousy and in the fire of My wrath I have spoken: ‘Surely in that day there shall be a great earthquake in the land of Israel, so that the fish of the sea, the birds of the heavens, the beasts of the field, all creeping things that creep on the earth, and all men who are on the face of the earth shall shake at My presence. The mountains shall be thrown down, the steep places shall fall, and every wall shall fall to the ground.’ I will call for a sword against Gog throughout all My mountains,” says the Lord God. “Every man’s sword will be against his brother. And I will bring him to judgment with pestilence and bloodshed; I will rain down on him, on his troops, and on the many peoples who are with him, flooding rain, great hailstones, fire, and brimstone. Thus I will magnify Myself and sanctify Myself, and I will be known in the eyes of many nations. Then they shall know that I am the Lord.”‘ (Ezekiel 38:18-23)
The Bible describes the destruction of Israel’s enemies as total and complete. Workers will need to spend seven years just to clean the fields of bodies and weapons:
Then those who dwell in the cities of Israel will go out and set on fire and burn the weapons, both the shields and bucklers, the bows and arrows, the javelins and spears; and they will make fires with them for seven years. (Ezekiel 39:9)
Many readers miss the fact that these seven years are the Tribulation years, and are a clue as to the timing and sequence of the End Times.

I am with much hope waiting for the rapture of the body of Christ. I have suffered with a spinal cord injury for over 31 years. One thing I ran across that fills me with anticipation is the sign of the woman, which dovetails nicely with this well written article. The wonder or sign of the woman in heaven, Re 12:1&2, is apparently going to take place in the sky as a astrological conjunction of stars, sun, planets and the moon on Sept. 23, 2017.
