This week on 'The Hal Lindsey Report'
On this week's edition of "The Hal Lindsey Report": Last week saw the annual parade of oddities come to New York again. The opening of the United Nations General Assembly always produces some interesting moments. This year's seemed a bit more subdued than previous ones, though. Hugo Chavez didn't do any impersonations and Muammar Gaddafi didn't go into extra innings with his ad-lib comedy act.
Apparently, the high point (or low, depending on your perspective) was Iranian president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad's performance. He opened with prayer, invoking Allah to quickly send Imam al-Mahdi to defeat the infidel and bring victory to his righteous Islamic followers. Then he proceeded to lecture the crowd about how benign Iran's nuclear intentions are and how aggressive and devious the West is. To illustrate his point, he declared that elements within the US government staged the 9/11 attacks on America. On top of that, he asserted that most of the world and most Americans believe that to be true.
At that point, 32 delegations got up and walked out of the chamber. They included members of the European Union, NATO, Australia, Canada, New Zealand, Costa Rica, and, of course, the US. That seems like a pretty strong show of support for the US, until you consider that it left 160 delegations in their seats and applauding enthusiastically when Mr. Ahmadinejad finished. That 'extending an unclenched fist' strategy doesn't seem to be pay great dividends so far!
Remember when worms were what you dug up to go fishing with? Those were the good ol' days. Today, worms are what you use to bring down or wreak havoc on a nuclear weapons program when you can't get anybody to bomb it out of existence! And that's what's happening in Iran right now. A computer 'worm' called 'Stuxnet' is burrowing its way through much of Iran's industrial infrastructure. It's a very complex, highly sophisticated cyberweapon that seems intended to incapacitate -- or destroy -- Iran's nuclear enrichment facilities. Experts say that only a nation-state or national intelligence organization could create a cybertool this complicated and destructive. Naturally, that could only mean Israel!
Does this mean that the attack that Iran (and Russia) expected from Israel and the West has already happened -- and they never saw it coming?
Does anybody remember the old sci-fi classic from 1951: "The Day the Earth Stood Still"? Can you believe that movie came out almost 60 years ago? Well, according to theLondon Sunday Times, the United Nations is finally getting around to having somebody ready to answer the call when the extraterrestrials finally land and utter those classic words: "Take me to your leader."
Although the United Nations Office for Outer Space Affairs (UNOOSA) has existed in one form or another since 1958, recently the rumors started swirling that a Malaysian diplomat and astrophysicist, Mazlan Othman, would be designated as the person charged with preparing a reception for that anticipated day. Both she and the UN deny that that will be the role of UNOOSA, but you know the old saying: Where there's smoke, there's fire. Rumors like this don't usually just appear out of thin air.
In an interesting coincidence, on Monday, a group of former Air Force officers, base commanders, and nuclear launch team commanders held a news conference at the National Press Club in Washington, D.C. They related their observations and experiences with Unidentified Flying Objects (UFOs) that they said appeared over various nuclear missile bases around the United States and England. They contend that the UFOs manipulated the readiness stature of the missiles by either activating or deactivating their launch and targeting mechanisms for short periods of time. The former officers also asserted that they were warned by the military and the government to keep quiet about the incidents.
Their contention that there are aliens among us (NOT the undocumented immigrant variety) and the UN's "maybe/maybe not" preparation for their arrival raises the old question: Are UFOs real? I'll share my thoughts on that subject with you.
IMPORTANT! If you've not registered to vote in the November 2nd general election, then you can't have a say in the direction our nation is heading. In many states, the deadline is Monday, October 4. In others, like California, the deadline extends until October 18. I sincerely believe this election may be the most important in our nation's history. It's troubling that each election seems more urgent than the last, but that's a sign that America is failing rapidly! And we must do everything we can to arrest the decline. Don't fail to do your civic -- and Christian -- duty. If you've not yet registered to vote, you can do so online at www.123VOTE.com. Do it today. Register; get informed; seek God's guidance; then vote on November 2nd!
