    ENVISION THIS: Combining the intelligence quest of the mind with the wisdom quest of the heart 

    Paul Fitzgerald and Elizabeth Gould, a husband and wife journalistic team, gained exclusive access to Kabul following the Soviet invasion. As the first American journalists to tackle that story they got a unique view of Afghan life and a revelatory look at how the U.S. defined itself against the rest of the world. But as they confronted the wall of East-West propaganda that shielded the true nature of the conflict from the public, they found themselves drawn into a story that was growing into mythic dimensions.

    It was in 1992 when they started working with Oliver Stone on a screenplay about their journalistic adventures they realized a profound shift in their consciousness. That was when the esoteric side to their Afghan experience began to form as a story which they called The Voice and which Stone asked them to merge into the factual Afghanistan story.

    It started as a dream-inspired story about the 12th century Anglo-Norman invasion of Ireland, an enterprise largely run by the Fitzgerald family. Over time their minds opened to a new kind of parallel metaphysical story  as they merged ancient components from Celtic mythology and Irish history with the geo-politics surrounding Afghanistan. The Voice, which was published in 2000, foretold of Washington’s post 9/11 misadventures in Afghanistan. What makes the story truly unique is that the underlying esoteric motives of the geopolitical events laid out in this telling are revealed through one man’s deeply personal mystical journey.

    Along with The Voice, they are authors of Invisible History: Afghanistan's Untold Story (2009) and Crossing Zero The AfPak War at the Turning Point of American Empire (2011) published by City Lights. For more information visit their websites at www.invisiblehistory,com and www.grailwerk.com .

    Episode 302: Best of Fallujah Awakens

    in Military

    How did the US Marine Corps and local tribal leaders turn the corner in Fallujah?  Who were the people on the ground, Iraqi and American, who were the catalyst for the change that brought about a sea change in the tactical, operational, and strategic direction in Iraq?

    Our guest for the full hour to discuss that and more will be author Bill Ardolino. We will use as a base of our discussion his new book, Fallujah Awakens: Marines, Sheikhs, and the Battle Against al Qaeda.

    Bill is the associate editor of The Long War Journal. He was embedded with the U.S. Marine Corps, the U.S. Army, the Iraqi Army, and the Iraqi Police in Fallujah, Habbaniyah, and Baghdad in 2006, 2007, and 2008, and later with U.S. and Afghan forces in Kabul, Helmand and Khost provinces in Afghanistan. His reports, columns, and photographs have received wide media exposure and have been cited in a number of academic publications. He lives in Washington, DC.

    Israel builds fence along Jordan border to keep ISIS out (Second Coming Watch)

    in News

    1. Israel has taken one more step to walling itself off from its neighbors. The nation’s Security Cabinet adopted a proposal last month to build an approximately 18-mile-long fence along Israel’s eastern border with Jordan. Experts say Israel is worried that ISIS could exploit Jordanians who live close to the border.

    2. The first officially acknowledged peace talks between the Afghan Taliban and the government in Kabul ended with an agreement to meet again after the Muslim fasting month of Ramadan. 

    3. The Philippines argued at a closed hearing on Tuesday that an international court should intervene in its dispute with China over the right to exploit natural resources and fish in the South China Sea. 

    4. After missing a second deadline in a week on Tuesday for concluding the nuclear talks between Iran and six world powers, the US administration has begun to suggest the talks could continue without set timetables. 
    5. As world powers near a deal with Iran on its nuclear weapons program, Iran’s Defense Minister warned on Monday that “Israel’s weapons of mass destruction” threaten the entire world. 

    You can read these stories in more detail and get more prophecy-related news at SecondComingHerald.com

    The prophetic passage of Scripture that we will continue looking at today is 2 Samuel 7:11-16 which reads: "And as since the time that I commanded judges to be over my people Israel, and have caused thee to rest from all thine enemies. Also the Lord telleth thee that he will make thee an house. And when thy days be fulfilled, and thou shalt sleep with thy fathers, I will set up thy seed after thee, which shall proceed out of thy bowels, and I will establish his kingdom. He shall build an house for my name, and I will stablish the throne of his kingdom for ever."

    in Education

    The Total Tutor Neil Haley will interview Roh Habibi. 

    Born in Kabul, Afghanistan, and raised in the bay area of Northern California, Roh Habibi has only been in the real estate game for three years, quickly clawing his way to the top and making his mark in San Francisco working at Coldwell Banker Previews International. Last year, he placed in the top 6%, ranking #255 out of 4,100 realtors in the San Francisco Association and served as the chairman of their Young Professional Network. Always dressed to the nines, he's a power negotiator and will do whatever it takes to close the deal. An orthodox Muslim, he works hard to repay his parents for the big sacrifices they made fleeing Afghanistan when he was growing up.

    Habibi studied International Business and began his career in finance, managing investments for high net worth clients at JP Morgan Chase. He is a member of The Financial Planning Association's Chapters in San Francisco, East Bay, and Silicon Valley. Being a member vastly expands his network and allows him the unique advantage of connecting real estate portfolios with wealth, tax, and estate planning. Keeping a good work life balance is a challenge for him as he juggles his career, wife, Shugufa, and new daughter, Zahra. From praying and surfing to breakdancing and putting on a power suit, Habibi eats, breathes, and sleeps high-end real estate.
