Well yesterday was my last night down at Annalong with the Americans. They will fly home again to Indiana on Saturday morning. It's been great having them over here, and I think they thoroughly enjoyed themselves. They also said they have never eaten so well, and felt much healthier as a result. You just can't beat Irish home cooking! :). Link from my friends Cheryl and Darrell...

Javier Solana, the High Representative for the European Common, Foreign and Security Policy, has called on the soon-to-be formed Palestinian Authority to officially recognize Israel. The European Union has so far taken a "wait-and-see" approach to the Mecca agreement signed by the two terrorist organizations in Saudi Arabia last month. World leaders were disappointed by the deal, which offered no recognition of Israel's right to exist. 

Quote: ""There are many ways whereby you can express the recognition of Israel," Solana told The Associated Press. "I am not going to define what is the manner that would be the most appropriate, that's for them to decide, but in any case it has to be sufficiently clear that statement can be read and not only imagined."

Hamas leader Khaled Mashaal has urged both Israel and Russia to press the Quartet (EU, US, UN, Russia) for a lifting of the economic embargo against the Palestinian Authority, in return for an end to suicide bombings and Kassam rocket attacks. But with international pressure on Hamas to comply with the three principles strong at present, it is doubtful that Olmert will agree to that just yet. France's President Jacques Chirac has also once again pressed the European Union to accept the Mecca agreement, at an EU summit in Brussels.

Quote: "Chirac called on European Union leaders meeting in Brussels to "welcome the Mecca accords, which France sees as a first step towards applying the conditions of the Quartet" of Middle East mediators, his spokesman Jerome Bonnafont told reporters.

Meanwhile, it seems plans are underway in Europe to create the official post of EU Foreign Minister. German Ambassador to the UK Wolfgang Ischinger has revealed that British Prime Minister Tony Blair is supportive of creating the role, which was to be implemented after adoption of the ill-fated EU Constitution. But the European Commission has been cherry-picking parts of the document, drafted by freemason Giscard d'Estaing, and drafting it into European law. 

Quote: "Germany's ambassador to the UK, Wolfgang Ischinger, spoke warmly of the idea of an EU foreign affairs supremo, a role that would go to a full-time unelected Brussels figure who would strut the world stage at taxpayers' expense to present a "harmonised" foreign policy on behalf of the 27-member club. Mr Ischinger confidently expressed his belief that Mr Blair secretly supports the plan - which critics warn is a major step towards a European superstate. He claimed that other world powers could not "understand" why the EU had so many representatives on foreign affairs. And he called for Javier Solana, the EU's current "High Representative" on foreign affairs, to be put in charge of European foreign policy as a formal foreign minister.

I wouldn't be surprised if after Tony's retirement this Autumn, that he gets one of the top jobs in Europe himself. He has served the elite well. His government has legalized homosexual adoption, has established gay marriage, has attempted to end gospel preaching through religious "hate crime" legislation and is planning to bring in a national identity card to take away what freedoms we have left. Is it any wonder then, that the Prime Minister is now pressing for the creation of a post which the Antichrist is slated to fill? We could get into despair about all of this, but we don't have to. God is in complete control of the situation, and is allowing all this to happen to fulfil His will. The rulers of this world can only govern by God's permission, and He will bring man to an end of himself. Then it will be the Lord that will get the glory, when He returns to set up His kingdom, which shall never be destroyed.

Psalm 76:8-10
Thou didst cause judgment to be heard from heaven; the earth feared, and was still, When God arose to judgment, to save all the meek of the earth. Selah. Surely the wrath of man shall praise thee: the remainder of wrath shalt thou restrain.
