military history: Hitler’s blunders cost Germany victory in World War II

Students of military history try to glean lessons from past wars and the major campaigns and battles within those wars.  With all the hoopla over the new movie, Dunkirk, we thought we would share our thoughts from a military history perspective on Germany’s efforts in the Second World War.

These are some of the relevant books we have read that are on our bookshelves (placed on the carpet for purposes of these images).  German generals featured here: Franz Halder, Erich von Manstien, and Heinz Guderian (the “father” of Blitzkrieg).

The Principal Driving Force

Yes. Very good insights here in this lengthy quote from the late Solzhenitsyn. 2 things of note: 1. “Atheists” are often haters of God and not true atheists (as in non-believers, as you cannot hate what you claim does not exist). 2. The Marxists and Leninists drew from the thinking of the French Revolution. Many have noted this including this humble blogger.

God does not believe in atheists

Alexander Sol 2It was Dostoevsky, once again, who drew from the French Revolution and its seeming hatred of the Church the lesson that “revolution must necessarily begin with atheism.” That is absolutely true. But the world had never before known a godlessness as organized, militarized, and tenaciously malevolent as that practiced by Marxism. Within the philosophical system of Marx and Lenin, and at the heart of their psychology, hatred of God is the principal driving force, more fundamental than all their political and economic pretensions. Militant atheism is not merely incidental or marginal to Communist policy; it is not a side effect, but the central pivot.

―Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn

The History of Israel and Judaism Debunked

There is fake history and there is forbidden history.  We only present the reality of the dilemma here.  But, we encourage readers to do their own research so that they can reach informed conclusions for themselves.

What if the people we know as “Jews” are imposters?  Would that not mean that these people are not “the apple of God’s eye”?  And, would Christian Zionism be seen for the sham that it is?  Check out this post from another blogger.

The History of Israel and Judaism Debunked The History of Israel and Judaism Debunked

The world has been fooled and manipulated for 3500 year by fake tales inserted into human history, academia, media, politics, and religions. This situation cannot and must not be allowed any more. Without any doubt truth will prevail and trying to maintain, dodge, and defend fake history, dishonest academics, corrupt politics, and distorted religion are doomed to failure sooner or later.

The world will know and admit that the Hebrew Israelite are nomadic Arab tribe, (Hebrew=Ebri=Arbi=Arab). They took refuge in Ethiopia and they had never went to Egypt during its glory.

(Note: My Facebook account (Tarig Anter) is now phished immediately after I posted this article on it. My attempts with Facebook is still failing. I guess this article hit the undeniable truth.)

Here are a summary of the main falsehoods in the history of Israel and Judaism; plus a brief of…

houses in evening sunlight

A low angle sun can produce some interesting effects in photography.  For example, when on holiday in the desert, regardless of the season, the colors of the landscape are more alive, the various shades and subtle hues are accentuated in the early morning and again late in the day.

We present the following images in the order these were captured a few nights ago while on an evening walk in our neighborhood.  The summer sun is low in the western sky and its less intense light seems to soften the pastel colors of the stucco and wood houses.  Subjectively for us, there is an eerie, mysterious appeal to these scenes.

flowers along the sidewalk

Life goes on.  As humans fail to solve the thorny problems they themselves have created in this age of discord (aka Kali-Yuga), other life forms continue the struggle which is life.  And, some flourish despite man.

Here on the city streets (which if you recall the words from a song by Joe Walsh, “don’t have much pity”), we see flowers in full bloom on a July evening in the northern hemisphere summer.

Man Cannot Live By Reason Alone

A short, but thought provoking quote here – worth a quick read.

God does not believe in atheists


Even the wisest of mankind cannot live by reason alone; pure arrogant reason, denying the claims of prejudice (which commonly are also the claims of conscience), leads to a wasteland of withered hopes and crying loneliness, empty of God and man: the wilderness in which Satan tempted Christ was not more dreadful than the arid expanse of intellectual vanity deprived of tradition and intuition, where modern man is tempted by his own pride.
