PROPHETIC MESSAGE: What Will Come To Pass Soon!

Prophetic Message : What will come to pass soon !

SEPT 28, 2012  PROPHETIC MESSAGE, GIVEN BY THE LORD GOD TO BE SIMPLE TRUE PROPHET, BENJAMIN COUSIJNSEN. BENJAMIN IS SHOWN AND RECEIVES THIS MESSAGE OF THE ANGEL OF THE LORD, AND WRITES DOWN IN DETAIL, WHAT WILL SOON COME TO PASS IN THE WORLD BY DISOBEDIENCE TO THE GOD OF ABRAHAM, ISAAC AND JACOB, THE CURSING OF HIS NAME AND FORGETTING OF WHO GOD REALLY IS !

Full view :

The angel of the Lord spoke in the night, while Benjamin Cousijnsen saw everything happen, what will come to pass. Benjamin writes:

Shalom, Benjamin Cousijnsen, I am the messenger angel of God, Herna. I am sent to you in the mighty name of Yeshua HaMashiach, the Christ. In His name I speak to you. I’m allowed to reveal you this, Benjamin…

There will be an earthquake, which one did not expect! Your Sun will be black and can’t give his light anymore. Also I say unto you, that mankind is in darkness already, because of their sins! Why would the God of Isaac, Jacob and Abraham give you the Sun? If you have declared a hell on Earth about your life! Indeed, you didn’t want to know anything of Yeshua HaMashiach, Jesus Christ! You used His holy name as a curse, and forgot who He really was!

Your Moon will bleed fully, according to your violence on Earth, because you surrendered to the fallen angels! There shall not fall a star, that one fears; I’m talking about stars, that were of heaven, that shall fall with the strength of a very strong wind! This I say unto you, as it is written in the scriptures!

Revelation 6 verse 12 to 14 (I saw when he opened the sixth seal, and there was a great earthquake. The sun became black as sackcloth made of hair, and the whole moon became as blood.  The stars of the sky fell to the earth, like a fig tree dropping its unripe figs when it is shaken by a great wind. The sky was removed like a scroll when it is rolled up. Every mountain and island were moved out of their places.)

I have shown this to Benjamin! You, who truly has accepted Yeshua HaMashiach, are being saved!

Ezekiel 1, verse 4 I looked, and, behold, a stormy wind came out of the north, a great cloud, with flashing lightning, and a brightness round about it, and out of the midst of it as it were glowing metal, out of the midst of the fire…And there appears a giant UFO.

Ezekiel 1, verse 5 Out of the midst of it came the likeness of four living creatures,they are the technological fallen angels, and this was their appearance: they had the likeness of a man.I tell you, they have turned away!

Psalm 22, verse 26 They shall praise the LORD that seek him.

Repent now! The world will also be startled, worldwide, by many disasters.

Iran will set foot on the sacred soil of Israel, very soon! And any country that turns against Israel, will be faced with the strength and power of the God of Isaac, Jacob and Abraham!

Obama deploys his power, that just will not bring peace! Don’t you know who he is? Where the scriptures have spoken of? The antichrist is among you and has already seized his power!

If you surrender to Yeshua HaMashiach, Jesus Christ, to whom will you fear then? He comes very soon, hold on, beloved in Christ Jesus! I’m going now, Benjamin, Ruacha, Jeshu, Shalom!

UN recognition of Palestine brings end-times prophecy of Joel closer !

UN recognition of Palestine brings end-times prophecy of Joel closer !

If the Palestinians would know and believe-what the Bible says about the fate of Gaza, they would have much less reason to celebrate the UN recognition for their own state. “

Note that when Syria will use chemical weapons, the US will start airstrikes against Syrian troops and important targets : The result will be that Syria will launch chemical missiles against Israel, the result of a chemical strike against Israel will be a Nuclear War : Israel will use Nuclear Weapons against Damascus, this action will fulfill the prophecies of Edgar Cayce and Baba Vanga … Also several quatrains of Nostradamus can be about this war that will become the third world war.

Ps : Sorry for the “Google Translation” 🙂

PA-leader Abbas declared in his speech in Ramallah that the dream of a Palestinian state has come true. After an overwhelming majority in the UN approved the upgrading of the Palestinian Authority to non-Member State. The only few Christians with anything more than superficial knowledge of the biblical end-time prophecies, however, know that the division of Israel in the end time for over 2800 years ago was foretold by the prophet Joel, and also ultimately the result will be : A final, devastating world war and the destruction of all nations who have turned against Israel.

Like most other Old Testament prophets Joel writes about the rejection of Israel by God because of their unfaithfulness, but also about their recovery in the last days, right before the “Day of the Lord” comes. From the old texts it is clear that we are currently living in the predicted end time :

“For behold, in those days and at that time, when I once will bring back the captives of Judah (Judah, Jews = Jews) and Jerusalem, I will gather all nations and drains into the valley of Jehoshaphat, and I will there with them in judgment by reason of my people and my heritage Israel, whom they have scattered among the nations, and parted my land … “(Joel 3:1-2, NIV)

Many Bible Experts believe this ‘targeted’ by God Himself in the valley of Jehoshaphat (near Jerusalem, between the Temple Mount and the Mount of Olives) at the same time will occur when the massive battle in the valley of Megiddo, known as “Armageddon”, the greatest battle ever right to the return of the Messiah will be preceded.

God : Israel my inheritance, my country

Notice that God Himself is speaking and he Israel my inheritance “and” my country “calls (which goes much further than just” Jewish land “!), And literally to the enemies of Israel” Palestine “and Lebanon aims:

“And also, what have ye to do with me, O Tyre and Sidon (South Lebanon, the domain of Hezbollah), and all the borders of Palestine (KJV: Philistia)! Ye me give recompence? But if you want to repay me, lightly, quickly, I will recompense on your head again bring your … You have the children of Judah and the children of Jerusalem sold to the children of the Greeks (the West), that ye might remove them far from their border (area) might bring. (vs. 4-7, SV) Behold, I will raise them out of the place whither ye have sold them, and I will bring your recompence upon your head. “(Vv. 4-7, SV)

Peoples around advancing against Israel

Some time after the in verse 2 for benefit sharing of Israel will ‘surrounding nations’ (vs.12)’ advance to the valley of Jehoshaphat, “obvious to Jerusalem, Abbas again by the” eternal capital of Palestine was called, to “liberate”. Often overlooked, but very important for a correct interpretation of this prophecy, is adding ‘around’. It is therefore only to the countries that surround Israel, and who are without exception Arabic and / or Islamic and sworn enemies of the Jewish state.

In verse 15 confirms that during the “Day of the Lord ‘, the last stage of the end times will happen :

“The sun and moon are darkened, and the stars withdraw their shining.”

Egypt and Arabia destroyed

These events-whether literally or figuratively-are to be understood in many other places in the Bible the characteristics listed at the beginning of this “Day of the Lord” (Jes.13 :9-10 / Ez.32: 7 = Prophecy of the future destruction of Egypt / Joel 3:15 / 3:11 Habakkuk / Matt.24: 29 / Marc.13: 24 / Revelation 6:12, 8:12). Then God Himself will intervene :

“And the LORD will roar from Zion, and from Jerusalem, His voice, that heaven and earth will shake: but the LORD will be the refuge of his people and the strength of the children of Israel … Egypt shall be a desolation, and Edom (Arabia) will be a desolate wilderness, for the violence against the children of Judah, in whose land they have shed innocent blood. But Judah shall dwell for ever, and Jerusalem from generation to generation … And the LORD shall dwell in Zion. “(v. 16_19-21).

Muslim Brotherhood

Now that the Muslim Brotherhood, which openly seeks the destruction of Israel and the Jews, has taken over Egypt, it is not difficult to imagine that the country is already in the near future aggressive prepares and possible UN recognition of “Palestine” engages a military attack on the Jewish state to perform. In Ezekiel 32 is that Egypt will be completely destroyed (v. 15). Since this prophecy has never happened before.

Another indication that talking about a future event in the end time to go is adding “they will know that I am the LORD.” In other words, if their country is destroyed, the Egyptians will know who is responsible for this. Incidentally, according to Ezekiel also Syria (‘Assyria’, vs.22), Iran (Elam ‘, vs. 24), Turkey (Meshech, Tubal) and Edom (Arabs *) are destroyed.

* Ezekiel 25:12-13 confirms that this is indeed (Saudi) Arabia goes: “I will stretch out my hand against Edom and will exterminate humans and animals, I will make a mess of Temam unto Dedan , by the sword will fall. “Temam and Dedan are in the current Saudi Arabia.

Destruction of Babylon during the Day of the Lord !

The prophet Isaiah also added a country / region : Babel (Babylon), which in present day is Iraq. Verse 10 shows that this prophecy is about the future “Day of the Lord” :

“The stars in the heavens give no more light … The sun is darkened as she rises, the light of the moon is gone. Then I leave the world pay for her wickedness … “

In the sequel we recognize the global earthquake eg in Revelation is described. Some expositors think that the Earth literally from his job will be pushed, possibly by the impact of a large object (meteor or comet) from space :

“I make people scarcer than gold … I will make the heavens tremble, touches the earth shake from its place on the day of the Lord … The grim day of his fierce anger . Then everyone will flee to his country of origin … Babylon is like Sodom and Gomorrah, cities destroyed by God. Never again will people live, it remains depopulated until the farthest posterity…. (Jes. 13:10-20). No Arab will save his tent … “(Isa. 13:10-20).

Wrath of God on Gaza – Syria – Jordan and Sudan

The prophet Zephaniah is very specific. On the “day of the anger of the LORD ‘will’ leave Gaza and the Israeli cities of Ashkelon and Ashdod, during the recent conflict with Hamas again the target of numerous Palestinian missiles a ‘wasteland’ and ‘depopulation’, probably as a result of the future Palestinian-Egyptian-Arab military attack.

Then God will “the land of the Philistines” (by the Palestinians as their ancestors are considered) ‘to ruin, with all residents . The still densely populated Palestinian coastal strip will become ‘grassland’ and ‘accrue to whom Judah remain … Because the LORD their God, and will seek them out their destiny for the better. “(Zef.2)

Similar total destruction : The other attackers of the Jewish state-Jordan (“Moab” and “Ammon”), Sudan (“Nubians” (NLT) / ‘Moors’ (SV) / “Ethiopians” (KJV) and Syria (Assyria ‘) – will be destroyed also : “She rifled through what’s left of my people, their property is to what’s left of my nation (Israel) remaining” (vs.9).

Also Zephaniah gives the same double confirmation that we are dealing with future events to do: “Terrible shall the LORD against them (the enemies of Israel) being, for he will all the gods of the earth (all other religions and / or all world leaders) do waste away, and before him shall bow down, each in his place, all the coastal countries of the peoples n (SV: all the isles of the Gentiles = all continents) “(vs.11, SV + NKJV).

The Fate of Jews and Israel

In Ezekiel 36 is impressively throughout the history of the Jewish people, from the distant past to the future, is described. From verse 16 begins a flashback to the time when the people of Israel for their “evil deeds” the wrath of God upon himself and was banished to “foreign nations” and “distant countries” (vs.19). Since the Jews were not welcome and were-and still are-mocked (vs.20) because they had lost their land to their enemies.

“Thus says the Lord GOD: Vol schadenfreude, the enemy called:” The ancient mountains (lit. ‘high places’) are now one of us! “(Vs.2).

God is angry because of false accusations and conspiracy theories

In two sentences then Ezekiel foretold that the Jews everywhere would be slandered and persecuted, and the subject of all kinds (‘Zionist’) conspiracy theories and false accusations of “ethnic cleansing” and “genocide” would be:

“Thus says the Lord GOD: When you were destroyed, the people around you preyed on you . You went on the tongue and it was rumored about you … It is said of you that you have people devour you the nations which you live by robbing their children. “(Vs.3 13)

God Himself draws however personally :

“Thus says the Lord GOD: I speak with resin drafts and anger You are humiliated by other nations, and therefore, says the Lord God, I swear that the nations around you yourself will be humiliated … I will make you the humiliation of other nations no longer have to endure their ridicule not need to hear. “(Vs.6-7 +15)

I will bring you into your own land

It also makes very clear that God is not Israel, but the Arabs actual occupiers of the land now-with the support of all the Arabs, by the Palestinians for their own state is claimed :

“Thus says the Lord GOD: In the fire of my passion I complain Edom (Arabia) and all the other nations on. Their hearts were filled with joy and their souls filled with contempt when they took possession of my country and the pastures were spoils’ (vs.5).

“Therefore say to the house of Israel, Thus says the Lord GOD: I do not this for your sakes, O house of Israel, but for mine holy name, which you have profaned among the heathen, whither ye went …. I will take you from the nations and gather you out of all countries, and I will bring you into your own land “(22 vs. 24).

The fulfillment of that promise, the whole world witnessed in 1947-1948 when the state of Israel was founded and from around the world a massive Aliyah (return of the Jews) emerged, a process that is still ongoing.

Second part of Prophecy : The Cleaning

The second part of the prophecy has yet to be fulfilled or is about to be fulfilled (a process that can take many years) :

“I will sprinkle clean water upon you, and ye shall be clean : from all your filthiness and from all your idols, will I cleanse you … Ye shall be my people, and I will be your God …. Then you will remember your evil ways and your doings that were not good, and you will loathe yourselves for your iniquities and your abominations … Then the nations that are left all around you shall know that I the LORD have rebuilt what was destroyed and planted what was desolate. “(Vv. 25-36).

Hatred against Israel does God intervene

That hatred of Israel and the desire to destroy the Jewish state ultimately the main reason is that there is a limit to God passed over and he personally intervenes clear from the prophecy in Ezekiel 35 about the “mountains of Seir” (located in the current Jordan, where 60% ​​-70% of the population is Palestinian) and Edom :

“Because ye have eternal enmity cherished and ye have delivered the children of Israel to the violence of the sword at the time of their calamity, at the time of final settlement, therefore, as I live … Of blood will I make and blood shall pursue you, since you have not shunned shedding of blood, blood will persecute you. I will mount Seir to a place of desolation and destruction, and there exterminate anyone who comes or goes …. “(vs.5-7) With the same anger and envy which you have treated them in your hatred, will I also deal and me among them do know when I will judge you. “(vs.11)

I have your great words against me be heard

God has something to say about the known anti-Semitic and anti-Israel bluster about the “right” to a Palestinian state that today we again hear everywhere-not only in the Islamic world, but also in the West :

“I’ve heard the blasphemies which thou hast spoken against the mountains of Israel, they are destroyed, they are our (the Palestinians / Arabs) given to feed us! Yes, you have a high pitched against me excited and great words against Me stacked – I’ve heard. Thus says the Lord GOD: To the delight of all the earth will I make you desolate, as you rejoiced because the inheritance of the house of Israel was destroyed, so will I do to you: thou shalt be desolate, O mount Seir , yes Edom whole and al ‘

Again the same confirmations that this is not about the past, but the future is going to end :

“Until a perpetual desolation I will make thy cities shall not be inhabited: and ye shall know that I am the LORD.” (Vs.9). Both are never fulfilled: Jordan and Arabia are still inhabited and nobody has ever Yahweh, the God of Israel, recognized.

Overall performance :

History shows that the fulfillment of biblical prophecies ** in several consecutive sentences are written often many years and even decades or centuries-takes. This is clearly the case with the return of the Jews to their own country and by God promised ‘cleaning’, as mentioned earlier a process that possibly many years will take (think of the slowly growing group of Messianic Jews).

It is therefore impossible to say whether the large, many biblical prophets described end war during or at the beginning of the “Day of the Lord” is already very near, or still (decades?) Years in delay. Nevertheless, the ever-accelerating becoming events and upheavals in the Middle East that extremist Islamists who make no secret of wanting to destroy the Jewish state increasingly influence and power. Regular anti-Semitic and anti-Zionist statements of Egyptian President Morsi and Turkish Prime Minister Erdogan may therefore be a clear sign on the wall are seen.

** Due to the length of this article I have discussed in many previous articles known prophecies about the future destruction of Damascus (Jes.17: 1), the “Gog Magog attack on Israel (Ez.38) and the destruction of all of Israel’s enemies with possible nuclear weapons followed by the return of the Messiah (Zech.12 14) omitted.

Dead Sea Scrolls Now Available On Line !

The discovery of the first Dead Sea Scrolls in a remote Judean Desert cave in 1947 is widely considered the greatest archaeological event of the twentieth century. Bedouin treasure hunters and archaeologists ultimately found the remains of hundreds of ancient scrolls. These fragile pieces of parchment and papyrus, including the oldest existing copies of the Hebrew Bible, were preserved for two thousand years by the hot, dry desert climate and the darkness of the caves where they were placed. The scrolls provide an unprecedented picture of the diverse religious beliefs of ancient Judaism, and of daily life during the turbulent Second Temple period when Jesus lived and preached.

GENESIS

Among the oldest known copies of Genesis, the fragment of the Scroll shown here contains the description of the first three days of the creation of the world. 4Q Genesisg Date: 100–1 bce, Late Hasmonean Period, Language: Hebrew

In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. And the earth was formless and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep; And the spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters.”— GENESIS 1:1–2

THE TEN COMMANDMENTS

Date: 30–1 bce, Herodian Period Language: Hebrew

This small scroll preserves one of the earliest known copies of the “Ten Commandments” (the Decalogue), a central dogma in Judaism and Christianity, and the majestic description of their divine revelation at Mount Sinai. “I am the Lord your God who took you out of the Land of Egypt out of the house of bondage. You are to have no other gods but me.”— DEUTERONOMY 5:6-7

PSALMS SCROLL

Date: 1–68 ce, Herodian Period Language: Hebrew. “How good and pleasant it is when God’s people live together in unity”

— PSALMS 133:1
This book of Psalms is one of the best preserved biblical scrolls, containing 48 psalms, including 7 that are not found in the standard Masoretic version of the Bible. An additional prose passage provides one of the most ancient references to King David as the composer of the book of Psalms: “and David, the son of Jesse, was wise, and a light like the light of the sun… And he wrote 3,600 psalms.” Psalm 133, shown here, praises peace and togetherness.
MINOR PROPHETS SCROLL
Date: 50–1 bce, Herodian Period, Language: Greek. The “Twelve Minor Prophets” scrolls from the Judean Desert offer early evidence for the compilation of these short prophetic books into a single literary work. This particular fragment, from a Greek translation of the Minor Prophets discovered in the Cave of Horror at Nahal Hever, contains a prophecy of Micah about the End of Days and the rise of a ruler out of Bethlehem.
NON-BIBLICAL SCROLLS
Non-biblical texts discovered among the Dead Sea Scrolls offer us a tantalizing glimpse of life during the Second Temple period and the opportunity to understand the attitudes, desires and aspirations of the people of that time. Most of the scrolls from the Qumran caves are religious writings from the Second Temple period. Some of these reflect the life and philosophy of a distinctive group that called itself the “Yahad” (“Community”). At other sites, the major finds were administrative and personal documents dating from the catastrophic Judean revolt against Rome in 132–135 ce.
Dead Sea Scrolls Predictions and Psalms Scroll 11Q Psalmsa Prophecies - http://www.alamongordo.com - Book of Psalms is the Best Preserved Biblical Scroll with 48 Psalms and 7 more that are not mentioned in the Masoretic Version of the Bible
ENOCH
Date: 150–50 bce, Hasmonean Period Language: Aramaic. The book of Enoch was not included in the canon of the Hebrew Bible. It tells of Enoch, the great-grandfather of Noah, who lived for 365 years and “walked with God”. The displayed fragment describes the heavenly revolt of the fallen angels, and their descent to earth to cohabit with the daughters of men and to reveal secret knowledge to mankind, a story hinted at in Gen. 6:1-4.
APOCRYPHON OF DANIEL
Date: 50–1 bce, Herodian Period, Language: Aramaic. The Dead Sea Scrolls contain extensive apocalyptic literature relating to the final messianic battle at the End of Days. The Aramaic Apocryphon of Daniel describes either a messianic figure or a boastful ruler that will arise as “Son of God” or “Son of the Most High”, like the apocalyptic redeemer in the biblical book of Daniel. The text calls to mind the New Testament proclamation of the angel Gabriel concerning the new-born Jesus: “He will be great, and will be called the Son of the Most High… ” (Luke 1:32)
THE BOOK OF WAR
Date: 20–50 ce, Herodian Period, Language: Hebrew. The Book of War details an apocalyptic 40-year battle between the forces of good and evil. This fragment preserves a blessing to be recited by the leader of the surviving community upon their victory in the final battle, at the end of time: “God Most High will bless you and shine his face upon you, and he will open for you his rich storehouse in the heavens.” God and his holy angels will bestow abundance and fertility upon the holy congregation, and protect them from plagues and wild animals.

Egypt Votes Yes to Sharia Law !!!

Egypt Votes Yes To ShariaH Law !!!

Egypt’sMuslim Brotherhood got the constitution it wanted, so it claims. After two controversial rounds of voting, the brotherhood unofficially declared a win, with 64 percent support, for the Islamic-backed constitution. The country’s election commission—which has reliably tallied accurate results for past elections—will announce the official outcome tomorrow.

Opposition groups already dispute the Brotherhood’s alleged win, calling for an investigation into claims of voter fraud. While Islamist President Mohamed Morsi and his party pushed the constitution under the guise of bringing unity and stability to Egypt, the legitimacy of the redesigned government framework may be weakened by a low voter turnout of 32 percent and claims of voting violations.

Is this the “new time” that the Mayans predicted ???

“The referendum is not the end game. It is only a battle in this long struggle for the future of Egypt,” said the National Salvation Front, the main opposition group. “We will not allow a change to the identity of Egypt or the return of the age of tyranny.”

The opposition claims the new constitution seeks to enshrine Islamic rule in Egypt and accuses the Islamists of trying to monopolize power.

Critics say it does not sufficiently protect the rights of women and minority groups and empowers Muslim clerics by giving them a say over legislation. Some articles were also seen as tailored to get rid of Islamists’ enemies and undermine the freedom of labor unions.

The latest political battle began with Morsi’s Nov. 22 decrees that gave him powers to protect the Islamist-dominated panel writing the constitution and dismiss the country’s top prosecutor, a holdover from the Mubarak era.

Although Morsi subsequently rescinded the powers that gave him immunity from judicial oversight, his decision to replace the prosecutor general was viewed by many in the judiciary as trampling over their powers.  Hundreds of prosecutors held a rally Sunday demanding the new, Morsi-appointed prosecutor general quit, days after he retracted his resignation claiming it was rendered under pressure.

The prosecutors said in a news conference that they will be on strike until he quits. Scores of lawyers who support Morsi’s decision held an earlier rally, demanding that the top prosecutor stay, and accusing the opposition of being “thugs.” One major concern in the aftermath of the constitutional turmoil is Egypt’s deteriorating economy, which has been battered by the two years of turmoil and taken an added hit from renewed violence recently.

Adding to the anxiety, state television reported on Saturday amidst voting on the referendum that the central bank governor had resigned, then retracted the report. The governor turned up at a meeting of the government’s economic team Sunday in an apparent attempt to quell nervousness over the state of the economy. The government stressed the urgency of stability.

“The financial and economic situations are dire,” government spokesman Alaa el-Hadidi said, according to comments published by the state news agency MENA. With the referendum behind, el-Hadidi said economic policies must be at the center of attention, adding that the government will work to improve the investment environment to attract foreign investors.

The government had to postpone a request for $4.8 billion of IMF loans, putting off unpopular tax increases and reforms to after the referendum for fear they would only stoke political tensions. A day before the official results of the constitution are expected, the opposition front said it filed complaints to the country’s top prosecutor and the election commission asking for an investigation.

“The results of the referendum are for sure because of the rigging, violations and mismanagement that characterized it,” the National Salvation Front said. It alleged the vote was marred by lack of complete judicial supervision, which led to overcrowding that pushed down the voting rate. It also charged there was interference by those who were supposed to be supervising the vote, with some instructing people to vote “yes.”  Many judges who traditionally supervise elections boycotted supervising the vote.

“We don’t think the results reflect the true desires of the Egyptian people,” Khaled Dawoud, the front’s spokesman, told The Associated Press. However, the Brotherhood insisted violations were limited and should not affect the referendum’s integrity. The Freedom and Justice Party, the Brotherhood’s political arm, said it hoped the passage of the constitution would be a “historic opportunity” to heal Egypt’s divisions and launch a dialogue to restore stability and build state institutions.

If the violations are considered serious enough, there could be new votes in some areas that alter the results slightly. The referendum was conducted in two stages with the first vote on Dec. 15 and the second on Saturday. The Muslim Brotherhood and some media outlets have accurately tallied the outcome of past elections by compiling numbers released by electoral officials at thousands of individual polling stations shortly after voting closes.

Turnout for the vote was 32 percent of Egypt’s more than 51 million eligible voters, according to the Muslim Brotherhood. That was significantly lower than other elections since the uprising ended in February 2011. The opposition has pointed to the low turnout as well as allegations of violations in the voting to cast doubt on the legitimacy of the referendum. The Brotherhood said 64 percent voted “yes” to the constitution in a tally of both stages of voting. For Saturday’s second stage only, the Brotherhood said 71 percent of those who voted said “yes” with 99 percent of polling stations accounted for.   Read The Full Article.

New Earth ? Potentially habitable planet discovered !

A New Earth ?

Potentially habitable planet discovered orbiting nearby star similar to our sun !

Astronomers have discovered that the closest Sun-like star, Tau Ceti, is orbited by five planets, one of which is in the “habitable range”. If its existence is confirmed, the planet could be the closest potentially life-harboring world to our own.

Tau Ceti, twelve light years away, belongs to the same G-type yellow main-sequence class as our sun, which is relatively rare – only one in 25 stars has the same properties. Its planets were detected not by direct observation, but by calculating the slight gravitational tug these as-yet-unseen planets exert on the orbit of their star. Previously, these star ‘wobbles’ could not be clearly separated due to a multitude of other factors, but scientists at several universities in the UK and the US, say they have cleared the ‘noise’ with sophisticated new techniques and have found five planets.

“This discovery is in keeping with our emerging view that virtually every star has planets, and that the galaxy must have many such potentially habitable Earth-sized planets. They are everywhere, even right next door,” said a statement from Steve Vogt, of the University of California, Santa Cruz, who is the co-author of the discovery, due to be published by the reputable journal Astronomy and Astrophysics.

One of the planets, tentatively designated HD 10700e, appears to be in the so-called “Goldilocks zone”, the relatively small corridor where temperatures are just right for water to remain liquid, and for life to possibly flourish. It is two to six times the size of the Earth, weighs five times as much, and orbits its sun every 168 days. Tau Ceti is three times as far away as the closest star system to our sun, Alpha Centauri. Earlier this year, astronomers confirmed that Alpha Centauri contains a planet, but with a temperature of 1,200 degrees Celsius it is unlikely to host life.

Yet it is too early to believe that HD 10700e is an Earth-like paradise, waiting for us to arrive. It is not clear what it is made of, and what gases its atmosphere contains. Some scientists remain to be convinced it exists at all.

“They’re really digging deep into the noise here,” Sara Seager, an astronomer at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, told Science magazine, referring to the techniques used by the scientists. “The astronomical community is going to find it hard to accept planet discoveries from signals so deeply embedded in noise.”

The astronomers behind the project themselves say the discovery may take as long as ten years to confirm, and insist they published the findings to attract others to studying Tau Ceti. But the existence of HD 10700e should be relatively easy to confirm, compared to other potential planet candidates. “Tau Ceti is one of our nearest cosmic neighbours and so bright that we may be able to study the atmospheres of these planets in the not-too-distant future,” James Jenkins, of the Universidad de Chile and the University of Hertfordshire, said in a statement.

There are currently 854 planets confirmed by observation outside our solar system, but only a few of those could potentially support life.
