Manufacturing facts to fit prophecy

Attention all Christians and Muslims who view current affairs from the prism of Biblical and/or Islamic prophecy
Facts to fit so called divine prophecy --- to my delight, a Christian and very spiritual activist friend of mine had reached the same conclusion most straightforwardly as I had in Waiting for Allah – God Is Running The World So Let Him Run It, of how self-fulfilling prophecy is being employed for social engineering by fitting manufactured facts to prophecy, and wrote about it in 2009 here. It is pertinent for Muslims as well as for Christians, especially Christian Zionists, to read.
I just have to say that 11 years later, this is more and more true, of “history's actors” creating / engineering facts, reality, to fit prophecy. Not just from the Bible, but from all three Abrahamic literature, including Muslims'. Muslim scholars like Imran Hosein and others throughout the world, especially those in Pakistan such as media savants like Orya Maqbool Jan, Dr. Shahid Masood, Tanzeem-e-Islami crowd founded by Deobandi philosophy of Dr. Israr Ahmed, et. al., are, have been, and will continue, falling into this trap of self-fulfilling prophecy, thus becoming part of the diabolical social engineering, mostly unwittingly.
Take a whiff of what the stinking history's actors are capable of, by their own admission, to create both reality, and the mass perception of reality:
‘We’re an empire now, and when we act, we create our own reality. And while you’re studying that reality — judiciously, as you will — we’ll act again, creating other new realities, which you can study too, and that’s how things will sort out. We’re history’s actors . . . and you, all of you, will be left to just study what we do.’ — Senior Bush Advisor, The New York Times, October 17, 2004 (see The Mighty Wurlitzer - Architecture of Modern Propaganda for Psychological Warfare )
I don't get why these intellectual savants who are so well-read, become useful idiots of empire so easily; becoming victims of their own dogmas. Why don't they see the obvious fallacy! A god, who proclaims to be creator of the universe, requiring mayhem and tyranny to flourish to fulfill his divine prophecy can only be man-made ---- not the Creator of man who speaks of justice, mercy, benevolence, loving thy neighbor, not coveting thy neighbor's wife, striving for truth, living truth, striving for justice, living justice, etc. etc. etc.
The philosophical and logical argument is laid out in my Waiting for Allah that proves (or at least demonstrates if you will, as proof on esoteric matters is at best always arguable) to the rational mind that all this happening in current affairs is really facts made-up to fit prophecy, to enable: a) the masses to not resist the tyranny as it is god's will and those inclined to resist to wait for the messiah, mahdi, etc.; and b) to enable the rulers to live their primacy imperatives in their own private heaven on earth today while promising Heaven to the dumbed-down masses in Afterlife for being patient in this one and suffering their own hells in resignation to fate.
Why are scholarly people such fools? Never mind the masses! Especially why are Muslims like Orya Maqbool Jan, and organizations like tanzeem-e-Islami Lahore, who appear to be such literate people, behaving like likkha-parrha jahils bereft of any ability to reason from their own first principles? On the one hand they proclaim Allah, God, to be Just. On the other hand they spout gibberish from the writings of antiquity attributed to the Prophet of Islam that calls for a really unjust and tyrannical god who shall require earth to be filled with tyranny before god shall intervene to divinely enact justice. I spell god lowercase to denote that the absurd understanding full of contradictions is only in the convoluted mind of man who can't think straight.
Faith should not mean gibberish. Otherwise, stupid faith makes incredibly intelligent people worship cows and take baths in its urine... faith has no boundaries of illogic, rhyme or reason. Islam does not call for belief in gibberish and fallacies, but calls for deep reflection. Countless verses in the Holy Qur'an call for cleansed heart in order to understand its Message, the Divine Guidance to man for his spiritual and physical ascendance to the highest levels of virtues which it also defines. And cleansed heart metaphor, to me, among other things, means to avoid both prejudice as well as confirmation bias in order to understand the Scripture as Divine Guidance; sort of akin to deciphering cipher-text correctly into plain-text --- there is only one singular plain-text that is correct, the rest of it is bogus plain-text. That latter in this context simply means to avoid following one's ancestral religion, beliefs, socialization, culture, interpretation of favored scholars, sects, group-think, and to try and understand and live the Scripture in the context of what it says itself, rather than what socialization says it means.
That in turn simply means, drum roll, to use one's head for any and every aspect of belief system. It also means to not be taken in by fallacies and intellectual scams, self-serving whims and desires, historical and cultural myths, in the name of “religion of Islam” (or “religion of Christ”) in an incestuous self-reinforcing cycle of Confirmation Bias. I doubt very much if any Muslim scholar preaching prophecy (same for Christian scholar) even knows what that term means!
That's the foundational tragedy of Muslims today (and Christians, more so the Christian-Zionists, I am sure they have moms who love them, but the rest of the world rather consign them to the hell of their own making, right alongside the Judaic-Zionist). We, mankind, have become a culture of our respective religions and superstitions rather than culture of intellect with faith! And those who rebel go in the opposite way, are so fed up with dogmas and tyranny of majority that they become agnostic and atheists. The use of intellect does not and should not mean atheism is the answer. Both belief in God as well as non-Physicalism is rational. It just depends on which god and what aspect of non-physicalism.
Some beliefs are entirely immanent and arguable, and some even entirely absurd to be sure, but some rational and based on the reason of man and his consciousness --- our best human tools to understand reality, both physical as well as metaphysical. Atheist's denial of metaphysical reality is gratuitous and absurd. See Some problems in Epistemology if you want to understand matters in far greater depth than your high-falutin degrees from Western academia or Madrassa education ever exposed you to --- nothing too profound, but never taught in formal settings lest one becomes independent thinker and destroy the foundations of empire, injustice, primacy, national and cultural mythology, all of which rely on united we stand with crippled epistemology in order to foster gratuitous beliefs and control public behavior.
Oh well. Who the fck cares anymore! This is only for those who do; others I apologize for intruding into your inner sanctity of pursuing your American dreams that leaves little time to pursue anything but confirmation bias. Soon, that dream shall, if it already has not, become living nightmare in a global dystopia while you enable at least the one part of prophecy coming true while you await the Messiah of your religion, the part of tyranny spreading and false prophets arising, to recreate their long lost empire --- hahahaha as they laugh their way to the banks commenting “these stupid goyem”.
