It’s A Trap! The Wave Of Repercussions As The Middle East Fights “The Last War”

October 11, 2023

By Brandon Smith

Few people are familiar with a little event around 1200 BC called the Bronze Age Collapse in the region known as the Levant (now known as the Middle East). Most folks are taught that history and progress travel in a straight line and that each generation improves upon the culture and innovations of previous generations. This delusion is constructed around a Smithsonian-influenced view of the past. In reality, history tends to go in a circle, or a spiral, with innovation leading to ease, ease leading to laziness and corruption, and corruption leading to weakness and collapse.

Over and over again, humanity reaches for Elysium on Earth only to be slapped back down. The survivors then build grass huts on top of the ruins of the old empires and they start over from scratch.  Why does the Bronze Age catastrophe matter?  Obviously, because history tends to rhyme.

The Levant at this time was rich with civilization and trade, composed of a host of kingdoms that represented the known world including the Egyptians, Babylonians, Minoans, Mycenaeans, Hittites, etc.  They had vast economic networks, agriculture, industry and written libraries. The proximity of the kingdoms allowed for such extensive trade relations that this period is often referred to by modern historians as the first “globalized economy” (sound familiar?).

What took centuries to build was destroyed in a single generation by a series of disasters. A “mega-drought” caused kingdoms without consistent water resources to lose agricultural production leading to widespread famine and disease (yes, the climate can and does change dramatically regardless of human carbon footprint). Trade was disrupted by internal disputes, and a mysterious invasion of a group of roaming raiders called the “sea people” is documented as a primary factor in collapse.

The Sea People attacked numerous kingdoms, but many of them were also refugees flooding into the region. They disrupted cultures and economies and dragged a number of empires into the dust. This all happened in less than 30 years. Sadly, because only the elites of these civilizations were able to read and write, languages and historic documentation were lost.

This initiated a dark age which lasted for centuries. Humanity was set back, essentially to zero, while scratching and surviving among temples and pyramids of past generations. They must have looked up at those decaying marvels of architecture from hundreds of years ago and wondered “What the hell happened to us?”

Not everything perished, of course. The Egyptian dynasties were in decline, but they managed to hold together far better than their counterparts across the Levant.  However, the event represented a setback to human knowledge that was detrimental. One might suggest that if the Bronze Age Collapse never occurred we might be a space borne species traveling the stars by now.

Then again, maybe these cultures were so corrupt that they needed to fail so that something better could be built in their place?

What does any of this have to do with the state of the Middle East today? The smart readers out there surely see what I’m getting at. The intricate relationships and trade mechanisms of the Bronze Age led to great wealth and prosperity, but they were terribly fragile. That same interdependency resulted in their demise as they tumbled like dominoes on top of each other.

The globalization and collectivist war mongering of today is leading to a similar worldwide implosion. Our irrational ties to foreign entanglements and economies could very well destroy civilization again. Consider what are we about to see as the Israel/Palestine war unfolds…

Multiple Nations Dragged Into The Conflict

If you were wondering what the “October surprise” was going to be, well, now you know.  I will make my position on this situation clear – I don’t care about either side.  I care about innocent civilians, but other than that the war is irrelevant.  I am an American and I care about America. The same goes for Ukraine and Russia. Their wars are not our wars, and I am highly suspicious every time our political leaders try to lure us into choosing a side when foreigners start shooting each other. To summarize:  All wars are banker wars.

The Israelis enjoy our money but they have a history of proven illicit operations to lure us into war (USS Liberty, anyone?). The Palestinians and most of the Muslim world despise the west and Christianity in general (and I don’t really care who started it, the fact remains that our cultures are completely incompatible and this will never change).  Just because we happen to find common ground on fighting back against the insane trans agenda does not mean I’m willing to accept draconian Sharia Law in my community.

Both sides use tactics that deliberately target civilians. I’m not talking about collateral damage like we saw in Iraq and Afghanistan, I’m talking about groups that are consciously and brazenly engaged in plans for genocide. Bottom line? There are no “good guys” to join with. It’s a complete sh*t show of ancient tribal nonsense that westerners should stay away from.

For those that disagree, ask yourselves this – Are you truly willing to go pick up a rifle and fly to Israel or Gaza to fight and die for either side?  If so, then go do it and stop demanding others do it for you.  If not, then shut up.

But here’s what’s going to happen:  The establishment will seek to force Americans and Europeans into these wars regardless.  The corporate media and some political leaders are already suggesting that the recent full scale attack on Israel was planned by governments outside of Gaza. Some are accusing Iran, and others accuse Lebanon. From the extensive amount of footage of the attack that I have examined, I have no doubt that someone other than the Palestinians orchestrated the event. The tactics were far too advanced and far too coordinated; the Palestinians have never been all that smart when it comes to military strategy.

Who drafted the attack is another question entirely. So far there are a lot of rumors but no hard evidence leading to any specific governments. Another big question is, how did the Palestinians manage to organize all of this and execute the invasion WITHOUT Israeli intel services knowing about it? Mossad is known to be one of the most intrusive and pervasive covert agencies in the world, yet they were caught completely off guard by this unprecedented attack?  I think not.

I’m reminded of the events of 9/11 and the strange series of intelligence failures that preceded it. I’m also reminded of the lies, propaganda and the reactionary response which led to two decades of meaningless war.

I’m going to call it here – In a couple of weeks we will hear reports that many of the soldiers involved in the incursion were NOT Palestinian. They will claim some of them are from Iran, Syria, Lebanon, etc. There will be intel that says Iran was a major backer of the plan (The Wall Street Journal already claims this is the case, but they have not provided any compelling proof, yet).

A US carrier strike group is on the way to the region now, and this is just the beginning. Europeans will be pressured to go to war, American conservatives in particular will be waterboarded with propaganda telling us that an “attack on Israel is an attack on the US.” It will be a lot like the rhetoric Neo-cons and leftists used during the initial invasion of Ukraine, but multiplied by a thousand. To be clear, both Biden and Trump have been rattling sabers and testing the waters of war, so don’t think that we can avoid this simply by voting.

Multiple Fronts

Israel is going to pound Gaza into gravel, there’s no doubt about that.  A ground invasion will meet far more resistance than the Israelis seem to expect, but Israel controls the air and Gaza is a fixed target with limited territory.  The problem for them is not the Palestinians, but the multiple war fronts that will open up if they do what I think they are about to do (attempted sanitization).  Lebanon, Iran and Syria will all immediately engage and Israel will not be able to fight them all – Hell, the Israelis got their asses handed to them by Lebanon alone in 2006.

This will result in inevitable demands for US/EU intervention.

East vs West

Depending on the extent of the western reaction, the BRICS nations may be compelled to get involved. This may not be on a kinetic level, but there is a chance. Russia has strategic security treaties with Iran and Syria. China has numerous economic interests and influence in the region as the world’s largest importer/exporter.

These nations might retaliate with the same kind of financial warfare that the west used against Russia – With China and the BRICS cutting off the dollar as the world reserve currency. This would add to the crippling inflation we are already experiencing.

Terror Attacks And False Flags

If you thought things might be eerily quiet on the terrorism front lately, that’s now over. I would be shocked if we made it another six months without multiple attacks tied back to Islamic groups. Some of them will be real and some of them will be staged, and telling which is which will be difficult.

The thing is, wide open borders in the west have made this far more likely and the establishment knows it. In my opinion they WELCOMED IT. If they can get at least one crazy Muslim to shoot up a strip mall or blow up a football stadium, they will have all the leverage they need to con Americans into another ground war in the Middle East.  Do we need to “fight them over there so we don’t have to fight them here?”  That’s garbage thinking.  We should not be letting them over here in the first place.

Europe in particular is playing with fire. National governments and the EU have invited tens-of-millions of these people to their doorsteps and now they face a serious conundrum. There are Sharia Law communities all over Europe, there are millions of military age Muslim men with every opportunity to do great harm. And, there are millions of woke leftists currently cheering them on, thinking that this is some form of “decolonization.”

Closure Of The Strait Of Hormuz, Skyrocketing Oil Prices

I have been warning about this scenario for many years; it was only a matter of time before tensions with Iran gave them a rationale to close the Strait Of Hormuz and shut down 30% of all oil exports from the Middle East to the rest of the world. Keep in mind, Europe is suffering from extensive energy inflation, in part because of the economic crisis and also because of sanctions against Russia.

Biden has been trying to hide inflation by dumping oil from the strategic reserves onto the market, but now those reserves are the lowest they have been since 1983.  Conveniently, this happened right before the strike on Israel. Our reserves are depleted as we go to war. Oil prices and gasoline prices will explode if Iran is implicated in the Israel attack. Iran will run a few giant oil tankers into the Hormuz, sink them, and make the strait impassable for months. Don’t be surprised of we see $200 per barrel oil next year, which will translate to around $7 per gallon gas or higher for much of the US.

A Push For A New Draft

Let’s be honest, current US recruitment numbers are a joke and the wokification of our military is making it weaker by the month. No American citizen with a legit warrior mindset or combat aptitude is going to join that circus freak show voluntarily. The establishment will try to regale conservatives and patriots with visions of “fighting the good fight for family and country” but most will not buy in. With attempts to ignite multiple fronts against Russia, China and the Middle East, they will start talking about a new draft system.

My belief is that this will fail miserably and would start a civil war rather than fill the ranks of the Army or Marines, but they may have a scheme to deal with this outcome…

Is This The Real Reason Why US Officials Are Encouraging The Migrant Invasion?

The reality is, America has its own invasion to deal with.  During the Bronze Age Collapse certain empires (like Egypt) survived using an odd tactic – Instead of fighting off the invading hordes of refugees, nomads and sea people, they HIRED them and inducted them into important positions within their military. Corrupt authoritarian rulers ultimately found that they faced more of a threat from their own starving peasants than they did from the outsiders, so they joined with them to put down local rebellions.

This might not be as useful in Europe, but in America I wonder if this was the intention all along; to bring in millions of military age foreigners with little sympathy for the existing culture, then in the midst of collapse and conflict offer them automatic citizenship and benefits if they join the military. Not on the small scale the federal government has going today, but on an enormous scale the likes of which we have never seen.

Maybe the plan was always to leave the gates open and allow illegals to stroll in so that they could act as a mercenary contingent to fight in foreign wars or fight against American citizens should rebellion arise…

Plan C

The timing of the conflict in Israel is incredibly beneficial to globalists, and this might explain Israel’s bizarre intel failure. Just as US and British leaders had prior knowledge of a potential Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor in 1941 but warned no one because they WANTED to compel Americans to fight in WWII, the Palestinian incursion serves a similar purpose.

The covid pandemic and mandates failed to get the desired result of a global medical tyranny. The war in Ukraine failed to get desired results as the warhawks’ demands for boots on the ground against Russia fell apart. Perhaps this is just Plan C?

The establishment seems particularly obsessed with convincing US conservatives and patriots to participate in the chaos; there are a number of Neo-cons and even a few supposed liberty media personalities calling for Americans to answer the call of blood in Israel. Some have described the coming conflagration as “the war to end all wars.”

I believe that the real war is yet to truly start, and that is the war to erase the globalists from existence. They want us to fight overseas in endless quagmires in the hopes we will die out. And when we do, there will be no one left to oppose them. It’s a predictable strategy, but its success is doubtful. Another interesting fact about the Bronze Age Collapse – The elites were some of the first groups to be wiped out after the system broke down.

    Another brillant article, Brandon and Thank you for the historical reminder.

    “It’s A Trap!”. Absolutely agreed with you.

    It was reported this news: israeli air force reacted ONLY 5 hours after this huge attack from “palestinian” soldiers….INCREDIBLE, isn’t it?!
    “I’m reminded of the events of 9/11 and the strange series of intelligence failures that preceded it. I’m also reminded of the lies, propaganda and the reactionary response which led to two decades of meaningless war.” Indeed, this geopolitical event reminds us of “September 11”.

  • The Happy Hindoo October 11, 2023 at 10:20 am

    It’s funny how the MSM spins the current events as “Israel’s 9/11” when in fact 9/11 was ITSELF Israel’s 9/11! The failure of the American people to wrap their heads around that, after more than twenty years, is the actual “biggest intelligence failure” in human history (people on this board exempted of course):

  • Christian B Adams October 11, 2023 at 10:40 am

    This also takes attention away from the House investigations of his family fraud.

  • Ilk October 11, 2023 at 10:53 am

    “The establishment will try to regale conservatives and patriots with visions of “fighting the good fight for family and country” but most will not buy in.”

    I am not so sure about that. its remarkable to me how, in the last 72 hours, a whole bunch of people who were ready to burn DC to the ground are suddenly all in on “git sum” in the ME. The Davosians were very shrewd to make sure Israel was the next flashpoint to pick up millions in the propaganda wave where the Uke adventure failed.

    off topic: was directed here from another site a few months ago. really enjoy your perspective, thanks!

    • RJ October 12, 2023 at 10:08 pm

      I agree. Absolutely insane how short people’s memories are. Of course 9/11 was 22 years ago so we have a whole generation of working age who were not even alive to witness what happened.

    • T October 24, 2023 at 2:19 pm

      Exactly right – don’t underestimate the degree to which people are idiots easily swayed by the controlled press (think also of the Scofield Bible and U.S.-based Christianity).

  • Paul Buchanan October 11, 2023 at 10:57 am

    What a great article by Brandon Smith this is.

    I fully concur with his conclusions and how it relates to history.

    This was the biggest false-flag operation since 9/11 and the warmongering U S. government and its military is on its way to spearhead Israel’s desired Armageddon.

      The interest has to come from somewhere or the ponzi scheme collapses. Currency is created as debt with interest due, but the interest is not created, so how can the debt be repaid? War.

  • Tom MacGyver October 11, 2023 at 11:32 am

    On Titanic, there were three groups of people:

    Group 1: Believed that Titanic was unsinkable, and went back to whatever they were doing before she struck the iceberg. It was “someone else’s problem to deal with.

    Group 2: Sat around analyzing what happened and wondered if the flooding could be mitigated.

    Group 3: Knew that “God Himself” COULD sink this ship, and headed for the lifeboats.

    You best bet is to be a part of “Group 3.” How the “October Surprise” happened is irrelevant. IT HAPPENED. This is the kind of thing that makes people and countries get emotional and pick sides very quickly. Emotion gets you DEAD. This is the stuff of world wars. This is NOT going to end well, and is NOT going to be limited to the Middle East.

    …Prepare accordingly…

    • David Homer October 12, 2023 at 12:49 pm

      Where do they keep the life boats for planet earth? There is no way to prepare for total war that will last for years. If you know how to pray then do so. If you don’t know how to pray then perhaps nothing will give you comfort.

      • Jim October 13, 2023 at 6:36 am

        Isaiah 17 and Ezekiel 38 warn us what comes next.

        Joseph was warned of the imminent years of famine and reacted by storing every spare ounce of grain.

        God warns us so we can react. Pray? absolutely. Spiritual preparation however does not preclude us from preparing in any physical ways available to us. There is no lifeboat, but growing and storing food may mitigate some of the excruciating suffering we will soon endure.

      • Tom MacGyver October 13, 2023 at 10:46 am

        The “lifeboat” is a metaphor for preparation for the inevitable.

        Indeed, I see nothing SHORT of Divine intervention straightening out this mess. God’s usual MO is to let the people who walk away from Him try to figure out their mistakes by themselves. “You think you can do things better than I can? Have at it, kids!” Trouble is, as when Jerusalem was sacked by the Babylonians, the porpoise ends up in the same net as the tuna…

        Pray… Indeed, PRAY…

  • Gauntlet33 October 11, 2023 at 12:54 pm

    Brandon, phenomenal article. One of your best ever.
    “A US carrier strike group is on the way to the region now, and this is just the beginning.” — My bet is that the carrier will be blown up and was put there to be the “Pearl Harbor” WW3 triggering event.
    “Maybe the plan was always to leave the gates open and allow illegals to stroll in so that they could act as a mercenary contingent to fight in foreign wars or fight against American citizens should rebellion arise…” — I would say that’s a very distinct possibility.
    “Another interesting fact about the Bronze Age Collapse – The elites were some of the first groups to be wiped out after the system broke down.” — And I think they’ll be wiped out again.

  • Serge October 11, 2023 at 12:54 pm

    Concerning this “new war on Western civilization” – not to mention the Ukraine/Russia war, “climate issues” and other “threats” on humanity – we can expect more and more censorship and restrictions on freedoms.
    Globalists do not have many options left – They know and We know! – and are using (once again!) this method: “Problem, Reaction, Solution”. Or “Shock doctrine”!
    These evil guys seem to play their last cards.

    Again, concerning your anology about the similarities between 9/11 and this latest war in the mideast, here is a very, very relevant article by Paul Craig Roberts published in 2012 :

    The idea we as people can deal with our enemies and just come together and make world peace is and has been a naive and stupid world view. Ever since we have walked out of the garden the inheritor of this fallen kingdom, Cain murdered his brother and we have been killing each other ever since. And e have this incredibly spiritual arrogance to believe we can do this.

    “… history tends to go in a circle… innovation leading to ease, ease leading to laziness and corruption, and corruption leading to weakness and collapse… humanity reaches for Elysium on Earth only to be slapped back down. The survivors then build grass huts on top of the ruins of the old empires and they start over from scratch.”
    History goes in that dizzying circle because the internal character of human beings does not change. We keep staying in the same mental and spiritual basement-pit making the same mistakes without sufficient motivation to become better.
    Intriguing speculation proposes that some humans and cultures have ascended to great levels – and stayed there. What happened to them? They left Planet Earth for adventures far beyond. And maybe they come back to visit as some of UFO sightings over the years might signal.
    But for the rest of us… we think and do the same things over and over. We hand the same low-basement ideas and motives to the young… who then grow up and do the same to pollute the minds of their offspring. We do not grow spiritually so we stay more savage animals than evolved beings.
    “I don’t care about either side. I care about innocent civilians, but other than that the war is irrelevant.”
    In most conflicts around Globe – all participants are filthy. Silly notions put forth by 1960s TV Westerns of a true ‘white hat’ and ‘black hat’ are juvenile and nonsense. And those who take lives for any reason whatsoever – even as they might dress things up with flowery reasons like ‘fights for freedom’ – are simply killers. Taking human life… and most tragic of all… the lives of innocents who wanted nothing the hell to do with the whole filthy mess.
    “The establishment will seek to force Americans and Europeans into these wars regardless.”
    ‘The Establishment’ serves the Dark Side. As the Apostle told us… we fight not against flesh and blood but against principalities and powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age. That is the driving force of conflicts among people and groups on Planet Earth. We as individuals are either serving Our Creator… or we are serving Darkness.
    “Israel is going to pound Gaza into gravel, there’s no doubt about that… the conflict in Israel is incredibly beneficial to globalists… They want us to fight overseas… in the hopes we will die out… there will be no one left to oppose them.”
    The Middle East is a chronic sore of inhuman turmoil and ethnic hatred… a region of
    cultural co-dependence of misery and human pain. It has been this way for generations.
    The Middle East is an experiment of what happens when hate for its own sake is allowed to become codified to bring endless harvests of death, pain, and misery. With little desire to seek honest solutions or to ever turn one’s back on useless human misery. This Region of Sorrows exposes the dark and ugly side of the human family that exists within the human spirit.
    Hatred and bad intent does not come in a single flag or uniform. It comes in all shapes and sizes and backgrounds. No group of people anywhere are without sin. And Innocents are dying on all sides who wanted nothing more than to live out Life in peace.
    Shame. And shame, again. Prayers for the Innocents. And Planet Earth cries out for sanity to appear and for the pain and suffering to finally end. A rise of sanity and humanity from a seedbed of inhuman darkness.

  • John October 11, 2023 at 4:49 pm

    Truly excellent analysis by Brandon of the current situation, and coincidentally the globalist plan is proceeding wonderfully with the recent incitement to the martyrdom of the leaders of Hamas to all Muslims in the world we are proceeding with the planned globalist plan of further terrorist attacks in the West which will serve the globalists to declare domination against Western peoples with a new plan of absolute control over peoples.
    As can be clearly seen, all this has been well planned down to the smallest detail and the war drums of the mass media under control throughout the world are already sounding for the great world war.
    The only hope of individually resisting this great manipulation is to stop this worldwide propaganda with alternative means of communication and personal contacts to warn everyone we know not to fall into this death trap of the globalists.
    We are millions and billions, the globalists are only a few dozen hundred and we can and must eliminate their Machiavelian and Satanist plan by spreading the truth.

  • Rodster October 11, 2023 at 4:51 pm

    Paul Craig Roberts says the Hamas attack was allowed to happen and likened it to our 9-11. He said that Egypt had repeatedly warned Israeli high ranking officials about these planned attacks and just ignored them.

    He also mentioned and ZeroHedge shed light on this that the weapons used against Israel were American made and came from the weapons left behind in Afghanistan. Further he believes that it’s the Washington Neocons are are behind this and want and need a distraction by creating WWIII because the entire system is failing.

    As Gerald Celente likes to say: “Currency wars, trade wars, world wars. When all else fails, they take you to war”.

    • BoomBustProfits October 11, 2023 at 11:47 pm

      “there’s a political liability which i think is something that we fail to look at because too often there’s so much Blowback from our intervention in areas that we shouldn’t be involved in- if you look at the history you’ll find out that Hamas was encouraged and really started by Israel because they wanted Hamas to counteract Yassar Arafat he said yeah that was better then and served his purpose but we didn’t want Hamas to do this so then we as Americans say well we have such a good system we’re going to impose this on the world we’re going to invade Iraq and teach people how to be democrats we want free elections so we encourage the Palestinians to have a free election they do and they elect Hamas so we first indirectly and directly through Israel help establish Hamas then we have election then Hamas becomes dominant so we have to kill them you know it it just doesn’t make sense during during the 80s you know we were allied with Osama Bin Laden and we were contending with the soviets it was at that time our CIA thought it was good if we radicalized the Muslim world so we finances the madrasa schools to radicalize the Muslims in order to compete with the with the soviets there’s too much blow back there’s a lot of reasons why we should oppose this resolution it is not in the interest of the united states it’s not in the interest of Israel either…” ~ 2009 Dr. Ron Paul, in a Congressional speech on the Floor of the House of Representatives

  • Major Skeptic October 12, 2023 at 9:56 am

    And according to at least one version of the bible, a paragraph, probably in revelations, reads, “the end times will begin with the destruction of Damascus”.

  • Luke October 12, 2023 at 5:43 pm

    —Thanks for the well reasoned response Brandon. What I find most aggravating and disheartening are conservatives that have seemed to have learned nothing over the last several years of full throttle mind manipulation. You don’t have to know the answer but when you see both parties and media ban together you should run the other direction.

    —Too many conservative Judas Goats are falling in line. And no I do NOT mean Lindsay Graham. His behavior is to be expected. I have no idea why some of these people on the right feel the need to jump on the bandwagon. Do they think it’s going to score points with our political foes? When/if this dies down they will never appreciate our loyalty as they laugh behind our back at how hopelessly stupid we are. #NotMyProblem

    —The latest trick by the masters of manipulation is to paint BLM as a Hamas supporter. Suddenly it’s now ok to rip BLM. You won’t even be cancelled this time. I recall 3 years ago when they burned down cities the same people that have turned on them now we’re feeding the terrorist group. I say let the White and Jewish leftists along with the RINO’s deal with it. And let them fight the war.

    —They deserve no comfort from me and nor shall they have any. Aside from the last several days the military still despises and discriminates to anyone who is reading this. To hell with them too. Guys this is the popcorn before the storm. Don’t worry soon there be plenty of action right outside your front door.

    Third….Gaza as a Palestinian entity is finished

  • gregori October 13, 2023 at 2:39 am

    To Brandon’s excellent analysis and interesting comments, one more approach can be added regarding the current conflict in Israel.

    I know that Christians are ready to interpret what follows as biblical prophecy that is fulfilled, but do not be in a hurry my friends, because everything is SELF-FULFILLMENT, not the hand of God.

    Regarding the conflict between Israel and Palestine, the reading has several levels of geopolitical interest. But I am looking at a possible religious-prophetic-geopolitical reading, connected to the THIRD TEMPLE, which wants to be rebuilt and which until now was impossible, because part of the ruins of the ancient Jewish temple is on Palestinian land and has been built on it, one of the largest places of worship and worship for the Muslim world.

    On the other hand, many Christians and Jews expect final prophetic events that will be fulfilled when the third temple will be built on these ruins of the ancient temple, where the Wailing Wall is currently located.

    The interpretation has more aspects, for the 3 religions (Jewish-Christian and Muslim) involved in the issue of the third temple, but more or less the basis of this new paradigm-vision is the possibility of FULFILLING THE PROPHETY about the third temple. (SELF-FULFILLMENT).

    Therefore it is possible that through this conflict, Israel took over the area of the old temple, which is in Palestinian-Arab territories, where Muslims have one of the most sacred temples (mosques) for them, the temple of Al Aqsa.

    If in this conflict the Muslim temple is destroyed, Israel’s path to rebuilding the third temple will be prepared, open.
    Let’s see the confirmation of this possible scenario:

    “Hamas has baptized its offensive against Israel as “Al Aqsa Storm (or Flood in other translations),” the name of one of the Muslim temples that stands on the esplanade of the mosques in Jerusalem. For more than a thousand years, Muslims They pray in this place, the third holiest for Islam after Mecca and Medina, which is also a symbolic site for the Jews, where the Temple was built, and for this reason it has become a flash point in the conflict for decades. Palestinian-Israeli.

    The Al Aqsa Mosque is part of a monumental complex that houses several of the most sacred places for the Muslim world, the Al Aqsa Mosque itself and the Dome of the Rock, where tradition places Muhammad’s ascension to heaven.

    The enclosure that Muslims call Haram esh-Sharif, The Noble Sanctuary, and which is popularly known as the esplanade of the mosques, was built starting in the 7th century on the ruins of the Temple Mount of Jerusalem, where remains of the ancient temple still exist. Jewish temple – destroyed by the Romans in the 1st century AD – as the Wailing Wall, the holiest place in the Jewish religion.”

    These events were all planned and scripted…by entities that have all been absent for quite some time now. Essentially running on cruise control without updates or fuel. The primary fuel remaining is propaganda and generated fear. Don’t be fooled.

  • gregori October 13, 2023 at 10:55 am

    Explain to me how I could be fooled.

    I think you have not understood my point of view.
    jose montana —- The reconstruction of the temple is a dream for ultra-conservative Jews and also for fanatical Christians.

    And for Muslims it is a headache, a provocation, and fear to demolish their sacred temple Al Asqa.

    I think you don’t know much about the true situation of the area, seen from the religious and spiritual perspective, the fuel that destroys the peace agreements.

    At this point, after the JFK assassination, 9/11, Iraq, Afghanistan, Covid, and Ukraine, anyone that doesn’t immediately stop and instinctively become suspicious of the official story and narratives during world events is just a fool. We are being endlessly manipulated and programmed to either comply with something, implicitly support something, or ignore something. The globalists goals haven’t changed – they want far fewer people living on Earth, using much less fossil energy, and under full financial control and constant surveillance. Wars in multiple locations is probably their last best option now. I wouldn’t be surprised if China now makes some kind of war-triggering move against Taiwan too.

    • Serge October 15, 2023 at 6:13 am

      Absolutely agree with that.
      Indeed, don’t be surprised if the next conflict/war is about China vs Taiwan.
      P.S: this quote comes to mind:
      “Whenever you find yourself thinking like the majority of people, it is time to pause and reflect.”, Mark Twain

      P.S 2: Still regarding globalists’ Agenda, keep this option in mind too: “Cyber Polygon” and – “why not?!” – an “Alien invasion”…

    Left-wing death squads are almost certainly the criminal-elite’s game plan to put many of the “new Americans” to work.

    There is only one appropriate response, and it is not trading memes.

    Have a look to this very, very interesting video:

    Last but not least : There is enormous gas potential offshore the Gaza Strip, discovered in the early 2000s. Exploration campaigns carried out by British Gaz initially led to the discovery of natural gas offshore Gaza, and later in the Israeli and Cypriot offshore areas…

  • Ivor Biggun October 14, 2023 at 5:27 pm

    “Lebanon, Iran and Syria will all immediately engage and Israel will not be able to fight them all – Hell, the Israelis got their asses handed to them by Lebanon alone in 2006

    You forgot to mention the the US – who got it ass handed to it in Afghansitan – will see its bases in Iraq among the first targets to go up in smoke. And if the US Navy “brings out the Big Guns” in response, we’ll just have to wait and see how The Fleet deals with hypersonic nuclear-tipped missiles raining down on them. My guess is that those carrier-groups have a date with Davy Jones’s Locker.

    After that? THe END of The Empire.. with the US reverting to be a strife-ridden Third World hell-hole.

    So YES, it’s a Trap… a Trap for the USA!

      That is already the plan for the US, and it will be because the globalists created the instabilities that make the fall of the US possible. It won’t be because the Arab world can fight the US military; the Arabs are some of the worst combat tacticians on the planet and lose battles constantly. The problem is in US POLICY – the strategy of occupation. Occupations will always lose against guerrillas given enough time, which is what happened in Afghanistan. If the goal was simply to kill as many Taliban as possible and walk away then US forces could easily accomplish that in a couple weeks. But globalists created a dynamic where occupation was required, KNOWING that it was a losing situation and dragging the US down into a quagmire.

      In the face of what? War? Well, the secret is to never fight in a war unless you are ready to die for the cause.

      • michael webster October 16, 2023 at 7:27 am

        It’s the very people who start wars who prevail. They don’t die in them.

          Oh yes, they certainly can and do. If they don’t die in the war, they die because of the war. There will be people who make sure of that.

          • michael webster October 16, 2023 at 10:01 am

            Maybe the problem is they don’t know what may wait.

  • Stewart October 15, 2023 at 8:05 pm

    Hey Brandon
    What are the odds that China will make a move on Taiwan while this mess in the middle east is playing out? If I was in charge in China I would see this as my opportunity.

  • Sef Vars October 17, 2023 at 10:49 am

    Also around 1200 BC, was another event, called the Trojan War. Prosperous Troy had to be taken down. Cui bono? Who emerged great, after 2 indo-european societies (1 a direct rival, while the other, an up-and-coming 1) fordid their young men and resources, fighting it? ‘By deception we shall wage war.’ They even had slaving and mining operations, as far as modern day Russia. Iwis a ‘dark age.’ It was not until a millenium later, that it took the romans, to raze its most prosperous colony, then ritually solt its earth and cursed it.
    Solt = salted

    You are right about the real war, except it will empower globalists, not destroy them.

      No, it will destroy them, too.

    I borrowed some of your older work to write this.

  • Ivor October 20, 2023 at 3:08 pm

    I think the pandemic was not meant for imposing medical tyranny, but for establishing the digital/legal framework to later be used to establish a full-blown cybergulag. Global governance and global currency, for which consent is manufactured by the discrediting of national governance, and national currencies.

    So you just need crises that achieve that discreditation. Wars and monetary problems. Of course it helps if you can install imbeciles into national leadership positions, via some kind of “Global Leaders” program…

      No, it was meant to institute medical tyranny first and foremost. They simply failed.
