What's So Special About Palmyra?

19 Adar II 5776

The big news this week is the re-taking of the ancient city of Palmyra by Bashar Assad's forces. But, oddly, it was not the pushing back of ISIS that is being celebrated, but the opportunity to restore the ancient artifacts.

‘Palmyra damage monstrous, but mendable’: Experts accept challenging task to restore ancient city

The plans to restore Palmyra to its former glory are grand but feasible, if it is treated as a task of global importance, experts told RT. Russia’s State Hermitage museum has already promised to help remedy the damage suffered by the ancient Syrian city.

The destruction of ancient monuments in Palmyra became an irreparable loss to human civilization, the deputy director of Russia’s State Museum of Oriental Art Tigran Mkrtychev told RT, joining the call for the restoration of its heritage. He said that Palmyra is perceived by the world community as something more than just a monument of archaeology of the Ancient East.

“This place is the bridge between the East and the West, is the westernmost point of the Great Silk Road. That is quite a symbolic place in the history of human civilization,” Mkrtychev emphasized.

Does that seem as bizarre to you as it does to me? It gets weirder. According to the article...

‘Overwhelming silence on magnificent victory for the civilization’


Apart from UNESCO, there’s so far been little international reaction following the Syrian army’s success in retaking Palmyra.

NATO has declined to comment on the liberation of the ancient city. Apparently as a response to the lack of British officials’ reaction to the victory in Palmyra, the Russian Embassy in the UK posted a picture on Twitter saying – “keep calm and keep silent.”

Marcus Papadopoulos, Editor of Politics magazine, believes the reason why the international community is in no rush to comment on the liberation of the architectural site lies in their own ineffectiveness in fighting terrorists in Syria.

“There is an overwhelming silence in Britain and America on what was not just a magnificent victory of the Syrian army, and not just for Syria, not just for defeating terrorism, but for the civilization. The reason is America and Britain is not genuinely fighting terrorism,” Papadopoulos told RT.


This stands out for another equally weird reason. The following was reported by the New York Times on March 19th...

NEXT month, the Temple of Baal will come to Times Square. Reproductions of the 50-foot arch that formed the temple’s entrance are to be installed in New York and in London, a tribute to the 2,000-year-old structure that the Islamic State destroyed last year in the Syrian town of Palmyra.

...It will be uncanny and thrilling to see this arch from an ancient desert civilization set against the bright lights of New York.


Michael Snyder of the End of the American Dream blog commented on this...

In an attempt to “preserve history”, two exact replicas of the 50 foot arch that stood at the entrance to the temple will be erected in April 2016 in Times Square in New York City and in Trafalgar Square in London. Needless to say, a lot of people are quite disturbed by this. In ancient times, child sacrifice and bisexual orgies were common practices at the altars of Baal, and now we are putting up a monument of worship to this false god in the heart of our most important city.


Keeping in mind that the US/UK alliance created and controls ISIS and that Syrian forces could not have retaken the city without Russian air support and considering that the criticism above comes from a Russian source, it just makes you wonder if this is all part of some kind of East-West power struggle. Not East-West, as in Yishmael/Eisav, but East-West as in US/UK (i.e., the Vatican) and Russia - who will occupy the final seat of power of the New World Order? 


In a subsequent blog post, Michael Snyder speculates...

In April, part of the Temple of Baal that stood in Palmyra, Syria will be reconstructed in Times Square in New York City and in Trafalgar Square in London. The specific portion that is being erected in both cases is the 48-foot-tall arch that stood at the entrance to the temple. The Institute of Digital Archaeology is the organization behind this effort, and the display of these two arches is intended to be the highlight of UNESCO’s World Heritage Week late next month. After seeing my initial story, one of my readers observed that an arch is really just a gateway or a portal. In other words, it can serve as both an entrance and an exit. So could it be possible that we will be unknowingly setting up a gate or a portal of some sort in Times Square?


...This sounds like the plot for some really twisted episode of “Stargate” and not something that is supposed to happen in the real world.

And as I reported yesterday, the Institute of Digital Archaeology hopes to put hundreds more of these arches in major cities all over the planet.

What in the world are they thinking?

If we want to take all of this to another level of creepiness, let’s recall what I talked about the other day. Baal evolved from the chief god of the city of ancient Babylon known as Marduk, and Marduk can be traced back to an actual historical person. This historical person was known in Sumerian literature as “King Enmerkar”, and in the Bible he was known as “Nimrod”.


And we know that Nimrod led the rebellion against God at the Tower of Bavel and is reincarnated in this generation to lead the New World Order in a final attempt to unseat God as King once again.

...The cult of Marduk was the root of all of the ancient pagan religions of the Middle East, Egypt, Greece and Rome. In those other religions, the deity of Marduk came to be known by other names such as Baal, Osiris, Apollo, etc. And today there are many secret societies and occult groups that look forward to the day when this pagan deity will be resurrected and will return to rule the world once again.


Which brings me to comment on something mentioned in the most recent facilitated communication from Menachem:


...They say that Obama is a Muslim. But he's not a Muslim at all! He believes in the Satan. His style - the Muslims hate because it's against their laws, against their rulings. Someone like him known on account of his viewpoints - they would immediately take off his head, but he doesn't believe in Muhammed as a prophet, and he doesn't believe in HKB"H, and he also doesn't believe in Yeshu. He believes only in the Satan.

Now, what does it mean to "believe in the Satan"? Well, don't look for the Hollywood version of "devil worship" with drawn pentagrams and bonfires and people in hooded cloaks. The first clue we are given is at the very beginning of the human story in B'reishit...

Chavah: "But of the fruit of the tree that is in the midst of the garden, God said, "You shall not eat of it, and you shall not touch it, lest you die.'" [Rashi: She added to the command; therefore, she came to diminish it. That is what is stated (Prov. 30:6): “Do not add to His words.” - [from Sanh. 29a]

The Satan: "You will surely not die. [Rashi: He pushed her until she touched it. He said to her, “Just as there is no death in touching, so is there no death in eating” (Gen. Rabbah 19:3)]. For God knows that on the day that you eat thereof, your eyes will be opened, and you will be like gods, knowing good and evil."

Because the Satan's words appealed to her ego and her desires, she listened to him, i.e., she believed the lie he told her about Hashem and consequently disobeyed His instructions. 


And what was this "lie"? That HKB"H had His own selfish reasons, God forbid!, for instructing humans not to eat from the Tree of Knowledge. He did not want competition, as it were, from humans, but to keep them subservient to Him. The Satan presents himself as the great human liberator.

These we call the evildoers give worship and honor to him as such. To them HKB"H, is the villain, God forbid!, in the Creation story and the Satan is the hero who liberated humanity to become gods in their own rights. Such a person was Hitler, y"sh. The Jews who insist on remaining enslaved to this One God and who insist on keeping all of humanity enslaved to His Book of Instructions are viewed as the enemies of mankind and all who think and believe accordingly must be eliminated in order for mankind to realize its full potential and attain godhood, God forbid!.

We see these ideas being expressed in all kinds of ways in the world today. The creation of a new one world religion with HUMAN interests above all is a key part of their plan to unseat HKB"H as the One God and Power in the world.

To the extent that humanity admires, honors and celebrates human achievement and potential, it is in fact, worshipping the Satan. And it is no less so when, in Israel, this takes the form of State, Military, Nationalism, or so-called "human rights" and "democracy".

By this, it should be clear to everyone that a very great part of the world today is already worshipping the Satan!! God forbid!!

Also, I have to be clear about something very important here. Some Jews may be taken in by the Xian claims about the fulfillment of New Testament "prophecies" about the End Times. You have to understand that it is the Church which has been directing this plan for hundreds of years and they have made a point of "fulfilling" their own prophecies so as to fool the masses and use it to lure them in.

To sum up, this plan to replicate the Gates of the Temple of Bel, not just in New York and in London, but at another 1000 locations around the world, is part and parcel of all we have talked about until now. Mankind celebrates human achievement through building. It's why they built a "Tower up to Heaven", and why the vision of ever taller skyscrapers marks the progress of humanity across the world and why the falling of the Twin Towers was so devastating. It is also another sign of how very close we are to the very end of this blasphemy the evildoers call "modernity" and "progress". In their eyes, the fulfillment of human desire is the ultimate goal of all life.

May our own eyes bear witness to their ultimate downfall along with all evil. Amen!
