    "Onus probandi incumbit ei qui dicit" --- "The burden of proof lies upon him who affirms." A compelling assertion is made by the author in this book --- that, from long ago, within the Holy Scriptures, lie prophecies specifically regarding America and its future. On that metric, I take its measure, and, in this, he fails. A more accurate title for this book would be something like "An Evangelical Christian View on Israel". Published in 2004, it is a blend of Evangelical Christianity, nationalis "Onus probandi incumbit ei qui dicit" --- "The burden of proof lies upon him who affirms." A compelling assertion is made by the author in this book --- that, from long ago, within the Holy Scriptures, lie prophecies specifically regarding America and its future. On that metric, I take its measure, and, in this, he fails. A more accurate title for this book would be something like "An Evangelical Christian View on Israel". Published in 2004, it is a blend of Evangelical Christianity, nationalism, Zionism, and neocon views of the Middle East and its inhabitants. For the record, I have no problem with Evangelicals, nationalism, or Zionism. What I have problem with is, among many other things in this book, the way in which it takes Christianity and distorts it into a preoccupation with the world and worldly things to the exclusion of Christianity's true purpose of leading the believer to a closer and closer relationship with God. There seemed to be 3 basic themes throughout this book: 1. That America and Israel's histories and fates were, are, and will be inextricably intertwined from the very beginnings of American independence. 2. That the 2 sons of Abraham, Ishmael and Isaac, and all of their descendants --- have been, are, and always be in some sort of endless forever war without end. Ishmael as son of the concubine, Hagar, is bad ---- and Isaac, as son of Sarah, the child of promise, is good. As Ishmael is the father of the Arabs --- and, therefore, Arab are bad --- and, as Isaac is a forefather of the Jews, Israel is always good. 3. That, in Biblical prophecy, you can be on either the wrong side or the right side. As Christians, we must work now to make sure that we do certain right things --- or else we'll end up on the wrong side. I found these 3 to be problematic which I will address. On the first one, that America and Israel's histories are intertwined from the beginning, it's fanciful to say the least. Up until the end of the 19th Century, America was not really a world power in the sense that Europe's great powers, had no interests in the Middle East, and generally stayed out of other nations' affairs. However, the author tries to hammer that square peg into that round hole anyway. He brings up some obscure Protestant preacher from the 19th Century who claims to have had a revelation that Isaiah 18 has a prophecy concerning America and its role in building a home for the Jews ---- it doesn't --- it's a reference from Isaiah's time to the ancient kingdom of Cush --- and this is really the only actual Biblical reference that Evans provides for his claim that America is in the Bible . It just doesn't work --- relative to other nations, America really was not a major player in any sense of the term in the Middle East. And there are no clear scriptural references to America in the Bible. On the second, the author again and again takes every American economic and foreign policy decision involving the Middle East and builds this false dichotomy between Isaac and Ishmael. If America helps Israel --- then America is good. Likewise, if America has relations with the Arab world, then America is choosing Ishmael (bad) over Isaac (good). The way it's presented here--- Arabs (i.e. Ishmael) are almost like orcs in The Lord of the Rings --- bad, brutish, implacably arrayed against the forces of good, inhuman, savage, irreconcilable and beyond redemption. The theme is not only contrived --- it does not square with the facts of Scripture. In life, Ishmael and Isaac, while separated by their father, did not fight against each other, and, in the Bible, while there are prophecies that may show war against Israel by some other nations, there are no prophecies predicting endless wars between Jews and Arabs. So, while I love the Jewish people, Israel, and Jewish culture personally, I must --- and I think anyone a Christian ought also --- to reject any suggestion that God loves Arabs any less than He does anyone else. Moreover, the suggestion that one's past ancestors sets the course of who they are and how they and their ethnic group stands today is false. Regarding the third theme, that we, as Christians, must work to be on the right side of prophecy, it's a false premise altogether. As Christians, we entrust our lives, our souls, and our futures to God, and, if we are doing all we can to grow closer to Him, then a Christian cannot be on the wrong side of prophecy -- even if the times are ones of national collapse, peril, persecution, poverty, squalor, and even death. The author also has ideas that, aside from not even dealing with America and prophecy, don't even deal with prophecy in any sense. They're cockamamie -- breathtakingly so. For example, in one passage, contending that having invaded Iraq and not found WMD there --- they must be in Syria -- everybody knows it --- therefore, if we were doing our job against Ishmael, we'd finish the job and invade Syria. Oh, yes --- because look at how Iraq turned out, let's go into Syria and start another war. In another section, he condemns America, during the 1960s, for not supporting Nasser, Egypt's dictator at the time --- who had 2 wars with Israel --- but supporting Saudi Arabia--- which doesn't jibe well with some of his earlier points about making nice with Ishmael is bad. He condemns every American overture to Arabs for peace with Israel as being against Isaac and for Ishmael --- and seems to imagine that endless war in the Middle East is a fact of life we all must accept --- notwithstanding the cost in lives, many of which are civilian, and trillions in treasure. He makes very broad judgmental statements such as that 9/11 was judgment from God upon the United States --- not for any number of things one might imagine if they accepted that premise, but for failing to support Israel enough. I cringe when I hear preachers, many of whom are Evangelicals, saying such things. We don't know why God allows evil to happen, and I don't think that such speculations are helpful. For Christians, our challenge and directive must be to place our trust in God in all things. Yes, when tragedy strikes, we all should reflect on where we stand with God, and we all should help those effected --- and resist temptation to tell those who suffered that we know the reason for why they're suffering. Finally, in the Appendix, he has lists of scripture verses he claims to support certain aspects of prophecy. For example, one section titled "Prophecies: Curses on nations that reject God and His Word" has 13 Bible verses listed. I checked every one of them, and only one, Gen. 27:29, could be construed to mean that. Some of them, such as Deut. 28:14-68, are a specific covenant between Israel and God, addressing what will happen to the Israelites if they follow God and the curses they will receive if they don't. In another section titled "Prophecies declaring the land and eternal covenant", he lists a scripture verse, 2 Chronicles 37:7 that doesn't even exist! I could go on and on all day -- most of the verses listed are either taken out of context or do not support the point he claims they do. In a few cases, the verses listed aren't even prophecies at all. I do not recommend this book. It misinforms. It fails to support the claims it makes regarding America and prophecy, and, if anything, can mislead or needlessly alienate some ever really seeing the truth of the Bible and the Church.

Mike Evans urges the USA to side with Israel and the Jews , and so This remarkable book traces the relationship of the USA to Israel from a Biblical perspective , written by Christian Evangelist and true righteous gentile Mike Evans The book explains that , the way the USA treats Israel, will determine the future of the USA , working on the prophecy found in Genesis that G-D has given the Land of Israel to the Jewish People and will bless those that bless Israel and curse those that curse Israel. Mike Evans urges the USA to side with Israel and the Jews , and so choose a ' Great Awakening' instead of a 'Rude Awakening' by going against Israel and siding with the Arabs , whose aim is that not one Jew should remain alive in the Land of Israel, or what the Arabs and their supporters refer to as 'Palestine'. Evans reveals the words spoken by Bill clinton's pastor to the future President when he was still Governor of Arkansas: "You might be President one day . You will make mistakes and G-D will forgive you. But G-D will never forgive you if you abandon the State of Israel" Evans also explores the hatred of Israel by Moslems and their leftist allies , making it clear it is pure racism , that anti-Zionism and anti-Semitism are one and the same thing. As Martin Luther KIng Junior put it: " When people criticize Zionism they mean Jews, Zionism is nothing less than the dream and ideal of the Jewish people, returning to live in their own land." He grapples with the question as to what is fueling this hatred and can the engine of hate be derailed, warning us where this hatred can lead , reminding us that the so-called 'World Conference On Racism' in Durban , South Africa' , which turned into an anti-Semitic and anti-Israel hate fest, ended just three days before September 11 2001-the day that terrorists bombed the World Trade Center in New York. He refers to a conversation with former MOSSAD head Issar Harel in October, 1980 , where the latter predicted that Islamic terrorists would strike at New York's tallest building , as a symbol of the democracy and freedom , so hated by Islamic radicals and their leftist and Marxist allies. Even more chilling is the words of Yitzhac Rabin in his 1979 autobiography , the Rabin Memoirs : "As our recent history teaches us , what begins as a threat to the Jews is soon a menace to the entire world. It is but a short step between a knifing in Jerusalem and a bombing of the World Trade Center in New York". The book deals with the prophecies in The Bible especially with regards to Jerusalem and The Temple Mount. Particularly interesting is his tracing of the alliance between Hilter's Nazis and the Arab World against the Jewish People and Israel. Nazi propaganda and support played a large role in the Arab attacks against Jews that swept through the Land of Israel ('Palestine') from 1936 to 1939, in which several hundred Jews where murdered. Hitler commented : " I'm going to become a religious figure . soon I'll be the great chief of the Tartars. Already Arabs and Morrocans are mingling my name with their prayers.' Nazi broadcasts into the Middle East increased in 1937 , and after the Mufti Haj Amin al-Hussaini , the leader of the Palestinian Arabs , met with the German Consul in Jerusalem to tell him how he admired Hitler and wanted help against the British and Jews, large quantities of German weapons where delivered by way of Iraq to the Palestinian Arabs. By 1941, the Mufti Haj Amin al-Hussaini was an honoured guest of Adolf Hitler in Berlin. The Mufti was one of the most enthusiastic supporters of the 'Final Solution'. He lodged a personal complaint with Von Ribbentrop , the Nazi Foreign Minister , when he discovered that 7 000 Jewish children where to be transferred to Palestine , ensuring that the children where sent to extermination camps instead. Today Hilter's Meim Kampf is a bestseller in Egypt , Syria and the 'Palestinian Authority' and holocaust denial is rife in the Arab World especially among the 'Palestinians' As Mike Evans has said " The hue and cry is for peace in the Middle East; but at what cost to Israel? We decry anti-Semitism, but invite one of the biggest proponents to tea. We mourn those lost in the Holocaust; yet we allow the creation of an atmosphere of hatred and distrust that daily endangers the lives of innocent Jews in Israel. We stand silently and idly by while Palestinian children are taught the precepts of hatred, and the spiritual benefits of shahada, Islamic martyrdom by suicide bombing." The American Prophecies is a compassionate, insightful, knowledgeable and deeply spiritual treasure - that should be read by all. The question is why so many mean spirited hate mongers try to trash it. Obviously because of the love for Israel, and the confidence that |Israel will prevail against her cruel enemies. What's most unbelievable of all is the inhumanity of the so-called secular `humanists' who show no humanity at all to the Jewish victims of the campaign of genocide by the Palestinazi terror network. One someone said `there is nothing so illiberal as a liberal'. It seems today there is nothing so inhumane as a `humanist'. Please buy this book for itself and do not listen to its evil and vicious detractors, whose hatred for the book is really hatred for the Children of Israel and for the Judeo-Christian world. As a Jew I believe that Mike Evans is a true righteous gentile, who's mission is truth and moral clarity. 'The American Prophecies' is a work of true moral clarity and spiritual enlightnment. Get it now and read it

    I really enjoyed the historical aspects of this book as I was lacking in historical knowledge of the middle east. The religious aspect was interesting, but also sort of difficult to embrace fully.
