Amir Rafat, PhD is an excellent professor from whom I learned while studying at DePauw’s off campus program in Athens, Greece. Dr. Rafat was our Resident Professor along with his wife & 6 year old daughter @ The College Year in Athens program during my junior year abroad along with other students from American universities like Middlebury College in Vermont. Dr. Rafat was by far my most challenging professor @ DePauw and the most intelligent. Our course with him in Athens was Ancient Political Science and he created a learning environment that excelled any professor in Greencastle. It was a Challenging course that stimulated our thinking and earned an A+ on my Final Exam that back in the fall of 1973 were handwritten in Blue Books! For the past two months I have enjoyed reading books by Joel Rosenberg including “ The Ezekiel Option”, “ The Copper Scroll”, “ The Third Target” and currently “ Damascus Countdown.” The Middle settings of Jerusalem, Amman, and Tehran in the midst of ongoing peace talks between Washington DC diplomats and Israel remind me of our lively discussions in Dr. Rafat’s class concerning Spartans, Athenians & City States versus the Roman Empire with their Caesars conquering Europe, Asia and Africa in the known world then. I wrote a thesis comparing the United States as the Athenian democracy conquering Russia as Spartan army versus China using communism as means to conquer the world like the Roman Empire achieved in its nearly 1,000 yr control of people & ethnic groups around the world. Secretary of State Henry Kissinger was the American globetrotter in 1972 and did his best with his German accent to propose peace in Middle East while China’s Communist Party began its run to control the world. Fascinating times we live in and because DePauw students enjoyed the opportunity to study abroad in Athens, Greece with Amir Arafat, PhD we gained an understanding of political systems then and now. Jerusalem is now the Capital of Israel and the center of the world’s end time events. I thank GOD who chose the Jews as His people who were blessed with the Promised Land known as Israel today. GOD Almighty told Abram to leave the land of Ur with his wife Sarai to travel to the area now known as Jerusalem where we continue to discuss peace in the Middle East. The Philistines aka Palestinians were conquered when David killed Goliath of Gath with his slingshot of smooth stones the triumph that amazed the evil Philistines and the world to this day. His Story in the Bible and His Truth keeps marching on and The Good News is GOD the Creator of the universe WINs! Believe the truth not the lies of the world. Amen!
