Barack Obama cancels meeting with Dalai Lama

Wednesday, October 14th, 2009

While news such as this would not normally make me raise an eye brow, this time around it has. In the past, the United States has been able to pretty well do what it wants to on the National Stage without concern of what other nations think of us. While we tried to place nice (most of the time) we would simply do what we thought was in our best interest. This week, the fact that our President has decided to hold off meeting with the Dalai Lama until after a certain set of meetings with China sets an interesting, and not very assuring, precedence. Even if you do not read any more into than the fact that the strength of the US is declining and the strength of China is increasing, it is still a sobering thought for those of us who have been used to the unchallenged strength of our country since the end of World War II. At worst, it begins to lay out a scenario where the US does not determine its own direction, but where it is but one country among almost 200 being corralled in the same direction by the United Nations or some future world government.

Report: Global Muslim population hits 1.57 Billion:

You may have already heard this. I find it rather fascinating. One of the key points of this report is that there is an unwarranted assumption that there is a correlation between being Arab and being Muslim. What this report explains is that most Muslims are not Arabs. As has been discussed in the classes that I have taught, we have the three main monotheistic religions of the world heading full speed ahead to a common place and time in history. If you add up the populations of Jews, Muslims and Christians (Catholic and Protestant combined) you get a tally that is somewhere approaching 2/3rds of the worlds population. Even if you do not believe that Revelation is telling our future … you can not deny that the Jews are waiting for their Messiah which requires them to rebuild their temple and resume national sacrifices (foretold in Revelation) and that there are sects of the Muslim community that are preparing for their end-time scenario to be fulfilled which requires the elimination of Israel amongst other things (also foretold in Revelation). It just makes you wonder ….
