Another massive wall found in City of David
Recent archaeological digs in the City of David, just outside Jerusalem's Old City, have uncovered another massive wall from the First Temple period believed to be part of a palace and major government complex used by King David's royal line. The newly discovered 20-meter-long section of a 7-meter-thick wall is part of a monumental 10th century BC building found in 2005 by Dr. Eilat Mazar of the Shalem Center and Hebrew University. According to The Jerusalem Post, the find further bolsters Mazar's claim that it is the site of the palace built for King David by King Hiram of Tyre, as recounted in II Samuel 5. The on-going digs at the City of David have undermined arguments by the so-called "Copenhagen School" that the biblical figure David either did not exist or was merely a small village chieftain.
Islam has held to the lie that King David never existed. There will always be so called experts who refuse to believe the truth. Today there are so called experts who claim the moon landings were all staged in some Hollywood studio. They have scientific proof that man can't ever live in outer space. Their argument seems plausible, but it is a lie. We did go to the moon! The footprints, and tire tracks remain undisputable. The proof is there for even the greatest skeptic. Here in the Holy Land the undisputable proof of the Bible can be found in Biblical Archeology in that the places, names, and times can be verified. The higher critics have long ago taken over this field of science. Anything found in the Holy Land that confirms the Bible is immediately attacked with the flimsiest of counter arguments by the big shots from Harvard and other bastions of liberal political persuasion. The truth of the proof overwhelms even their mighty spin on the science of Biblical Archaeology. The liberals represented by the Copenhagen School have been so successful in destroying truth spinning it into a liberal lie that Islam has had an easy time of convincing the world that the Koran is more reliable then the Bible. It is with the Koran that the skeptics of higher criticism could have a field day with all the lies, but that is a politically incorrect subject for the liberals. They refuse to subject the Koran to the same scrutiny they have already subjected the Bible.
Islam has taught this generation under penalty of death that King David is a myth. There is no Moslem scholar anywhere who would admit the Jews have found King David's palace. They even deny the very foundation upon which the Al Aqsa and Dome of the Rock mosques are built are Jewish! Yet, Herodian stone is identified everywhere in the foundation blocks. The truth is overwhelming, but Islam stands on the foundation of lies. It will never admit the truth no matter how overwhelming that their great mosques of the Holy Land are built upon Jewish foundations laid long before Mohamed wrote his blasphemous Koran!
Friend there is another Kingdom coming to the Holy Land, Jerusalem, and Mount Zion. There is another King promised through the linage of the great King David. This King will be King of kings, and LORD of Lords!
7Of the increase of his government and peace there shall be no end, upon the throne of David, and upon his kingdom, to order it, and to establish it with judgment and with justice from henceforth even for ever. The zeal of the Lord of hosts will perform this.
10Blessed be the kingdom of our father David, that cometh in the name of the Lord: Hosanna in the highest.
Friend, make your peace with the Lamb of God who sacrificed Himself so your sins could be forgiven. He is coming again to claim this planet that He purchased with His own blood. Friend have you received this Christ as your Savior? He is a consuming fire to those who turn His truth into a lie. He is coming again to establish Biblical righteousness on planet earth. Will you stand with Him as one of His own, or will you be counted among the skeptics who rejected Him? The choice is up to you, and no one else.

IsraelNN.com) U.S. House of Representatives Speaker Nancy Pelosi toured Jerusalem Saturday together with America’s first Muslim congressman, Rep. Keith Ellison (D).
The Democratic Speaker arrived Friday on a fact-finding mission.
Pelosi and Ellison, together with staffers, toured the Church of the Sepulcher in Jerusalem’s Old City, followed by a stop at the Western Wall prayer plaza at the foot of the Temple Mount.
For security reasons, the tour was not announced ahead of time, though Ellison says he plans on visiting the mosque atop the Temple Mount. "I haven't seen it yet, but I hope to, I'm really looking forward to it," Ellison told CBS News.
Pelosi is set to address the Knesset on Sunday and will also be meeting with Prime Minister Ehud Olmert and Palestinian Authority Chairman and Fatah chief Mahmoud Abbas in the coming days.
Pelosi’s delegation, which includes U.S. Representatives Henry Waxman and Tom Lantos (D-California), Louise Slaughter (D-New York), Nick Rahall (West Virginia), and David Hobson (R–Ohio), will also be visiting Syria, Lebanon and Saudi Arabia.
There has been some controversy over the visit to Syria back in the U.S. "This is a country that is a state sponsor of terror, one that is trying to disrupt the Saniora government in Lebanon and one that is allowing foreign fighters to flow into Iraq from its borders," White House spokeswoman Dana Perino said of the trip. "[Pelosi] should take a step back and think about the message that it sends."
What a wonderful kick-off by the Democrats for Passover 2007. They bring the only Islamic congressman to the Holy Land, Jerusalem, and the Temple Mount to thumb their nose in the face as to how much they despise the God of the Bible. The God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. The God of King David, and David's and God's seed the incarnate LORD Jesus Christ. What a wonderful message Pelosi is sending to the world that she sides with peaceful dialog while Islamic barbarians are declaring all out war on the Bible in the Holy Land, at Jerusalem, and on the Temple Mount. Pelosi would have preferred even more Islamic Congressmen elected to Congress to have come with her to demonstrate her open minded peaceful intent in the face of outright barbarianism on the part of Islam as it demands the Holy Land from the Jews, and their Christian supporters. I wonder if Congressman Keith Ellison will recognize the right of the Jews to the Holy Land? I wonder if he will acknowledge the right of the Jews to maintain their sovereignty over the Temple Mount as he visits the Al Aqsa and Dome of the Rock mosques on the Temple Mount later in this Democratic tour? No reporter dare ask him his opinion as a good Moslem on these questions without facing the eternal wrath of Pelosi the powerful speaker of the House.
The Jews embark on their celebration of the Passover today. It will probably be the same day the Democrats invade the Temple Mount with their lone Islamic Congressman to support the false claims of the Koran over the Bible. This is quickly becoming the voice of the Democratic Party. To support the rights of Islam, and the Koran over the Bible, Judaism, and the Christian supporters of the Jews and the Bible. This is the day the Jews sprinkled the blood of the first Passover lambs on the lentil, and doorposts of their homes. The blood signaled the angel of death to Passover those homes where the blood had been applied. This was the last of the 10 plagues of Egypt that broke the back of Pharaoh causing him to let the Jews go to their Promised Land. The Holy Land where King David established Mount Zion as his capital. Zion is the main peak upon the mountain of where the city of Jerusalem resides. The place where Abraham was to sacrifice his only begotten son Isaac, but God stayed his hand at the last moment providing a ram as a replacement. The blood of the Lamb sufficed in God's eyes as the needed sacrifice for their sin that day on that place. The value of that blood only existed in the knowledge God has that He would not stay the hand of death when His own Son was presented for sacrifice. King Solomon built the First Holy Jewish Temple on that one single place as his father David requested. Blood sacrifice was only acceptable to the God of the Bible from that one single place from that day forward. Again, the value of all those daily sacrifices was only as they pointed to the single perfect sacrifice of Christ, the only begotten Son of God, yet to come at Calvary. Today, we await the God of the Bible to provide the circumstances, men, and the vision to build the last Holy Jewish Temple that will stand on this place. Ezekiel 40 - 48 reveals this Temple, the only Holy Jewish Temple that contains a throne, yet to be built on the Temple Mount. It will as all the former Jewish Temples have an altar for sacrifice. The blood of lambs will again flow as the God of the Bible looks back to Calvary in remembrance during the Great Tribulation, and on into the millennial Kingdom! It is this Temple, and this Kingdom that Pelosi and her Democratic colleges with their single Islamic representative stand before the world to oppose! They would rather see the Koran not the Bible representing the Promised Land, Jerusalem, and the Temple Mount! Ask them you lily livered reporters. Seek out the truth of where this generation of Democrats are heading in regards to the future of the Holy Land?
Friend, it is all about the blood! Not any blood, but perfect blood from the one single perfect sacrifice for sin. He is coming again! Are you prepared? Are you saved? You are without excuse. Christ has done it all at Calvary. It is finished! Have you come to this Christ of the Bible for the forgiveness of your sin, or do you reject Him? Islam is clear that as a religion, as a culture, and as a gentile nation they reject Jesus Christ as their Savior. The God of the Bible is just as clear that He rejects them because of their rejection of the blood of Christ. What about you. Those who never come reject the blood of Christ as much as any Moslem. Is the judgment of God such a trivial matter in your eyes that you would join the Pelosi crowds in thumbing your nose to Him? Beware, for only a remnant of any generation come to the God of the Bible. The masses are on their way to hell. Where, dear friend, are you headed? Come to Christ and live! Friend, have you been cleansed? Have you been purged in the blood of Christ? Has His blood offering for your sin been applied to your heart? Only this perfect King could ever rule the perfect coming Kingdom Age. Will you be there?
16I Jesus have sent mine angel to testify unto you these things in the churches. I am the root and the offspring of David, and the bright and morning star.
17And the Spirit and the bride say, Come. And let him that heareth say, Come. And let him that is athirst come. And whosoever will, let him take the water of life freely.

Hamas Fulfills Warnings of Takeover of Gush Katif
IsraelNN.com) Hamas terrorists have fulfilled predictions by Gush Katif and Northern Gaza expulsion victims that the demolition of the Jewish communities would lead to their being taken over by terrorists. Eli Sinai, Dagit, and N'vei Dekalim now are being used to train terrorists to ambush IDF soldiers and fire rockets, Hamas terrorist Abu Abdullah told WorldNetDaily.
Days before the expulsion began in the summer of 2005, Hamas prepared 20,000 new uniforms for its operatives and supporters to stage a victory march.
Hamas Recruits Children to Terror Squads Via TV Programs
by Ezra HaLevi
(IsraelNN.com) A new Hamas video encourages the participation of children in terrorism and has been broadcast on Hamas TV.
Click here to see the Hamas video
"These are the acts of the Martyrdom-Seekers
Ahmad [Yassin] did not die
Do not mourn.
These are the acts of Martyrdom-Seekers
Palestine – one of its leader is Ahmad Yassin
Its children carry the knife.
Palestine – among its leaders is Ayyash [Hamas bombmaker]
Its children carry machine guns.
The land is filled with furious lions
Even though they killed our Yassin
The land will grow a thousand Ahmad!”
[Al-Aqsa TV, March 25, 2007]
This is the second Hamas TV video in less than a week promoting terrorist activities to children. The first was the video dramatization of the four-year old daughter of female suicide bomber Reem Riyashi, singing to her dead mother and vowing to follow in her footsteps.
See on You Tube:
Where is the international outcry against Hamas? This is outrages, but the world has hardened its heart toward the Islamic barbarians. What would not be tolerated of any other religion is commonplace in Islam. It is a religion all to itself. The righteous standards of the Koran are just plain filth to the rest of the world. Allah desires the sacrifice of little children to fulfill his blood lusts toward the human race. Martyrs blood in Islam has nothing to do with forgiveness of sin, but rather buys the little child into a sexually perverted paradise that he or she does not even understand at those tender ages. It is the perverted Mullahs who must teach the children such sexually perverted lusts are good and righteous. Folks, I hope you understand this Allah of the Arabic people is nothing more then the reincarnation of the old barbarian god Molech. The only thing that has changed is the name. When Mohamed rejected the Bible he searched for a false god to replace the true God of the Bible. Moloch the pagan god of child sacrifice was presented by a different name to him, and fit exactly what he wanted his Arabic god to be about. A merciless god that would demand loyalty or death. A god for the barbarians who would put the sword first. A sexually perverted god who would meet all the desires for sexual perverts gone amuck. A god who would define justice as anything that would make Islam and Allah look great, and would deny failures no matter how big the lie had to be. Worst of all he would be a god who demands human sacrifice with a special perverted lust for children. This is the picture of modern Islam, and the Allah of the Koran as the world now recognizes him. This is the Allah that the Evangelical Bush White House, and now the entire Democratic Party would want us to think is the same god as the creator God of the Bible who is full of mercy and grace.
The God of the Bible hates everything the Islamic god Allah represents! The concept of what is good and right are at opposite ends of theological righteousness. Yes, there are some good things that smokescreen the wickedness. We Christian Americans are often put to shame by the heathen who have higher standards then we when it comes to alcohol consumption. Our American PX's in Islamic countries can't carry beer or wine. They laud this one virtue to nauseam while encouraging little children to die in murderous suicides for Allah (be praised). All this while the Arab sheiks openly consume enough alcohol in their modern equivalents to the old Arab harems of sexual perversion to make up for the rank and file abstainer. I can't help but be reminded that Salt Lake City the bastion of the Mormon cult where the same virtues are exalted has as big an alcohol and sexual perversion problem as any city twice their size. It seems the virtues of these false gods never measures up to the religious spin. Friend, Islam has willingly committed whoredom with this ancient pagan god, and they are about to be cut off from the rest of mankind for what they do. What about you? Is the God of the Bible going to cut you off from the blessings of a pure and holy eternal heaven? Friend, if you never came to Christ for the forgiveness of your sin you are going to be cut off. You are not going to be allowed to pollute the purity found in the righteousness of the God of the Bible. Only those who have had their hearts changed by being "born again" will be able to meet God's righteous standard. It is through the righteousness of Christ that any of us have a hope of becoming righteous as God demands. It takes a miracle, and that is just what Christ can accomplish in the heart of a lost sinner. Won't you come to Him today?
14Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me.
2In my Father's house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you.
3And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also.
4And whither I go ye know, and the way ye know.

No Paschal Sacrifice This Year, as of Now
In other legal news, the Supreme Court rejected a petition by the Temple Mount Faithful organization to ascend to the Temple Mount this Passover and offer the Biblically-mandated Paschal sacrifice. The judges noted, however, that the "ongoing frustration regarding [the deprivation of] Jewish rights on the Temple Mount is understood, particularly in light of the denial of any such rights by hostile elements."
Yes, you read it right. The secular liberal Jewish Supreme Court ruled it is against the law to obey the Bible in Israel. The deprivation of the rights of the religiously convicted Jewish minority is now the law of the land. These pious judges not only acknowledge their arrogance, but relish their ability to trod down the few Jews who would still obey God. The time certainly seems right for God to send a prophet like Ezekiel to this rebelious nation.
3And he said unto me, Son of man, I send thee to the children of Israel, to a rebellious nation that hath rebelled against me: they and their fathers have transgressed against me, even unto this very day.
4For they are impudent children and stiffhearted. I do send thee unto them; and thou shalt say unto them, Thus saith the Lord God.
5And they, whether they will hear, or whether they will forbear, (for they are a rebellious house,) yet shall know that there hath been a prophet among them.
6And thou, son of man, be not afraid of them, neither be afraid of their words, though briers and thorns be with thee, and thou dost dwell among scorpions: be not afraid of their words, nor be dismayed at their looks, though they be a rebellious house.
7And thou shalt speak my words unto them, whether they will hear, or whether they will forbear: for they are most rebellious.
8But thou, son of man, hear what I say unto thee; Be not thou rebellious like that rebellious house: open thy mouth, and eat that I give thee.
Actually God tells us in the Bible He is going to send two prophets to the city of Jerusalem. They will not be liked by the rebellious nation of their day anymore then Ezekiel was liked by the rebellious generation God sent him to prophecy against. This present generation of Jews with their arrogant judges seems ripe to fill what the Bible says about the generation of rebels the two prophets of Revelation 11 are going to be sent.
7And when they shall have finished their testimony, the beast that ascendeth out of the bottomless pit shall make war against them, and shall overcome them, and kill them.
8And their dead bodies shall lie in the street of the great city, which spiritually is called Sodom and Egypt, where also our Lord was crucified.
9And they of the people and kindreds and tongues and nations shall see their dead bodies three days and an half, and shall not suffer their dead bodies to be put in graves.
10And they that dwell upon the earth shall rejoice over them, and make merry, and shall send gifts one to another; because these two prophets tormented them that dwelt on the earth.
Oh the arrogant joy of not just the rebellious Jews, but the great masses of gentiles living in these coming days. They will hate the righteousness of the God of the Bible. One thing we know about the death of these two prophets is that it takes place at the mid point of the Great Tribulation. Their ministry is designated at exactly 1260 days, or 42 months which is the first 3 1/2 years of the 7 year Great Tribulation. My personal study has led me to believe the testimony of these two prophets will be the building of Ezekiel's Temple. They will be the two olive trees similar to Joshua and Zerubbabel of the Second Temple Era. Imagine today's equivalent to Joshua and Zerubbabel come to build the last Holy Jewish Temple on the Temple Mount. Two Old Testament type prophets like Ezekiel who will have no fear of the secular liberal majority who think they are running the show. Imagine them telling this generation of Jews whether they will forbear or not that the time has come to build Ezekiel's Temple. A Temple with a throne for the soon returning Jewish Messiah the LORD Jesus Christ. Imagine them exemplifying true purity and holiness. Totally separated from the world in their sackcloth garb. Imagine every effort to stop them being met by supernatural plagues, and fire called down from heaven. Imagine the hate of this generation as the God of the Bible begins to force His righteousness on planet earth. The righteousness of God demands a last Holy Jewish Temple be built in preparation for the return of the LORD Jesus Christ. Islam must step aside for the righteousness of God. They must step aside or be destroyed.
Friend, this is the plan of God for the future of the Holy Land, Jerusalem, and Mount Zion. All rebels will be punished. Jesus Christ is coming again to force His righteousness not only on the Jews, but on the entire planet. Are you submitted to this coming King of Glory? Do you desire His righteousness above all this world has to offer? Are you born again? The alternative is that God will declare you a reble, and you will face the rebels end.

Pelosi to Assad: Israel Ready To Talk
(IsraelNN.com) Democratic Congressional leader Nancy Pelosi told Syrian President Bashar Assad Tuesday afternoon, "Israel [is] ready to engage in peace talks." She said she conveyed the message from Prime Minister Ehud Olmert, whom she met before traveling to Damascus with freshman Congressman Keith Ellison, the first Muslim member of the Capitol.
The Bush administration has denounced Pelosi for breaking the White House ban on high-level contacts with the Syrian government, which has been branded as a supporter of terrorism.
Assad previously has stated that Israel is not sincere about its readiness to negotiate with Syria, which has insisted that it regain the strategic Golan Heights that was restored to the Jewish state in the Six-Day War in 1967.
"We were very pleased with the assurances we received from the president that he was ready to resume the peace process," Pelosi said. "He's ready to engage in negotiations for peace with Israel."
Ahmadinejad: 15 U.K. sailors to be pardoned, released promptly
By The Associated Press
Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad announced Wednesday that his government would release the detained 15 British sailors and marines promptly.
He said the sailors would be taken to Tehran airport at the end of the press conference that he was addressing.
He said he had pardoned the sailors as a gift to the British people and to mark the birthday of Islam's Prophet Muhammed and Easter.
He pardoned the sailors and announced their release minutes after he gave medals of honor to the Iranian Coast Guard troops who intercepted the sailors and marines, saying Iran will never accept tresspassing of its territorial waters.
"On behalf of the great Iranian people, I want to thank the Iranian Coast Guard who courageously defended and captured those who violated their territorial waters," the president told a press conference.
He then interrupted his speech and pinned a medal on the commander of the troops involved in capturing the British sailors and marines in the northern Gulf on March 23. Two other troops came on to the podium and saluted during the ceremony.
"We are sorry that British troops remain in Iraq and their sailors are being arrested in Iran," Ahmadinejad said.
He criticized Britain for deploying Leading Seaman Faye Turney, one of the 15 detainees, in the Gulf, pointing out that she is a woman with a child.
"How can you justify seeing a mother away from her home, her children? Why don't they respect family values in the West?" he asked of the British government.
Justice is the cry from the Islamic Persian President of Iran. Jewish/Christian family values are slammed as this heathen potentate willingly seized the British troops in Iraqi waters, and then lied openly to the world saying the incident took place in Iranian waters with only his word as a Moslem as the proof. Justice and righteousness in Islam means only that Allah be presented as great. The bigger the lie the greater appears Allah, and all of Islam says "Allah be praised." The world knows when Islamites speak on behalf of Allah that they lie! It is expected because this is Islamic Justice. This is Islamic righteousness. Today, Pelosi is telling the world the Democrats can be trusted to negotiate with these liars! Her Party is superior to the Republicans in their ability to bring peace to the Holy Land. It may be true? It takes a willing liar to negotiate with another liar. The sad part is the outcome will always be a lie. This is justice as taught in the Koran. This is Islamic law which Pelosi is doing all she can to make the law of the Holy Land. The Bible on the other hand speaks of truth as being the standard the God of the Bible demands be the basis of Justice emanating out of the Holy Land, Jerusalem, and Mount Zion. Only one book is going to stand at the end. It is not going to be the book that the lying politicians are pushing. It is going to be the Bible. All the liars on that day will find their place in hell. The heathen who know nothing other then the lie will be forbidden to stand anywhere in the Holy Land when the righteousness of God is established once again.
The LORD Jesus Christ is coming again to the Holy Land, Jerusalem, and Mount Zion. He is coming to establish the Jewish Kingdom Age as prophesied in the Bible. It will be a time of truth! A time when the King of Glory will establish His righteousness on the planet.
29Happy art thou, O Israel: who is like unto thee, O people saved by the Lord, the shield of thy help, and who is the sword of thy excellency! and thine enemies shall be found liars unto thee; and thou shalt tread upon their high places.
The Bible tells us the high places of Islam where the Al Aqsa and Dome of the Rock mosques now stand will be trodden down by the Jews. It will be a day of great joy as Islam and the blasphemous Koran are expelled. The liars, and all the lying politicians who would put the Koran above the Bible shall find Allah the god of the barbarians is powerless. A barbarian State set alongside the Jews in the Holy Land will never be acceptable to a Holy God. The heathen must submit to the righteousness of God, or they will perish. These barbarians are on record as having said they will die before they will ever submit to a Jew. They have fixed their fate with what may be the only truth that can be attributed to them. The end is near. The politicians who represent the masses are going to be found worthless. God is going to replace them with the meek and lowly. A new dispensation is about to break forth at Mount Zion. The King of Glory is about to return to claim His inheritance won at Calvary. The sin of the world for which He died will be outlawed when His righteousness is established. It will be much more then just Islam that will be outlawed. It will be the freedom to lie that will be no longer tolerated. The Koran that produced , and encouraged the liars of today will be relegated to the dung pile of history.
44Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.
Friend, the truth will prevail just as the Bible teaches. The truth is we are all lost in sin, and need a Savior. The Old Testament prophesied that a Savior Messiah was going to come to the Holy Land, Jerusalem, and Mount Zion, and the New Testament identifies that Savior Messiah as the LORD Jesus Christ. The truth is that you must be "born again" before you can have the assurance that your sins are forgiven, and you are then fit to spend eternity with a Holy God. Friend, have you come to this Christ of the Bible? Any claims to being a Christian are lies unless you are "born again."

Palestinians clash with IDF in West Bank
Gaza rocket fire continues to plague Israeli cities
According to Israeli media reports, several violent clashes took place between Palestinian guerillas and IDF forces in the West Bank on Wednesday night, with firefights erupting in the cities of Jenin and Nablus and arrest being made throughout the Judea and Samaria region. Meanwhile, Ynet News reports that Palestinian terrorists in Gaza continued to fire Kassam rockets into Israel this week, but caused little damage. Nearly 200 of the deadly rockets have been fired into Israel since November 2006.
Understand what is happening in Israel. Islam knows they had a great victory in Lebanon. They don't even have to lie. The IDF is so politically controlled by the present secular liberal politicians that it has become impotent. All the while the IDF stumbled around Lebanon making sure they only did or went where the politicians sensitive to the Road Map would let them, Hizbullah never stopped firing rockets into Israel. The IDF found their hands tied so much by the Olmert government that with all their military power they were unable to stop Hizbullah. New tank buster rockets surprised the IDF, and caused them to be so protective that their tanks became useless in stopping the rockets. The politicians could not chance the political outcry by losing too many tanks. The whole world saw Hizbullah actually increase their rocket attacks while the IDF was in Lebanon. Hamas which now controls Gaza, and the West Bank (Judah and Samaria) learned the lesson well. They are now building underground bunkers throughout the Gaza, Judah, and Samaria as fast as they can following the footsteps of Hizbullah. Every penny the Palestinian Arabs can stir-up is being spent on this single project. Hamas is planning to do in the Gaza and West Bank what Hizbullah did in Lebanon. The IDF can invade all they want, but they will never be able to stop the rockets. Hizbullah is already back to full rocket strength in Lebanon, and Hamas is quickly approaching having the same capability in Gaza, Judah, and Samaria. This is no secret to Olmert. He knows Hamas is preparing to embarrass Israel as did Hizbullah. His inaction while the recent 200 rockets from Gaza poured down on the Jewish settlements has emboldened Hamas to be the aggressor. They have found something that works, and can't wait to attack the Jews.
There is a political wind blowing in both Israel and America. The will to fight a long protracted gorilla war with the Islamic barbarians is no longer popular. The only alternative is to negotiate. The only alternative is the Road Map. A one-sided withdrawal giving the barbarians everything for nothing. It is paying the barbarians tribute in hopes they will settle down. A false hope that the barbarians are very clear. Paying tribute never worked in the past, and the Road Map is similarly D.O.A. before it can ever be enacted. The Road Map is useless. Hamas has already said they will never recognize Israel. They will never quit torturing the Jews until there are no more Jews to terrorize, and then they will get even with all who sided with the Jews, the Christians, and the Bible. The will to stand up against the worst culture existing on the planet today is no longer politically correct. Standing up for the Bible, and the God of the Bible is to join the hated Independent Fundamental Jewish Settlers. Religious correctness is now to turn the other cheek while the barbarians murder with merciless vigor.
Friend, only God can turn the tide. The Bible says that is exactly what He is going to do. Islam is about to be cast on the dung heap of history where all the other false religions of the heathen now reside. What about you? Will God cast you out of His future plans for the coming Kingdom, and eternal life in a perfect heaven? It is sin that condemns, and it is Christ who is the only answer for sin. His perfect sacrifice at Calvary is acceptable to God according to the Bible as the only single atonement for sin. The Koran has no answer for sin other then more sin. Only the Bible presents a perfectly sinless Holy God presenting to this world of sin His only begotten perfect Son. A Jew who came through the Jewish linage of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. He is coming again to accept the heritage He purchased at Calvary. The world is His. He plans to rule it for 1000 years with perfect sinless righteousness, and then take all who are His into eternity future where sin will never ever be a factor again. Friend, have you asked this Christ of the Bible to save you from your sin? He is not the false christ of religion, but the Biblical Christ. The only begotten Son of God who has no beginning and no end. Who was there at creation with the Father and Holy Spirit formulating the eternal plan of salvation. Islam is powerless to save anyone from sin. Only Christ has the power through His shed blood to offer God the only acceptable atonement. Perfect blood offered to a perfect God is what Easter is about. The resurrection proved the acceptance was accomplished. The wages of sin had no power over this Christ of the Bible. It is to Him, and only him that a lost sinner can go to find mercy, grace, and the forgiveness of sin.
23For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.

Kadima May Block Peretz Expulsion of Jews from Peace House
by Hana Levi Julian
(IsraelNN.com) Kadima Knesset Member Otniel Schneller says most Kadima lawmakers intend to block Defense Minister Amir Peretz’s order to expel Jews from the Hevron Peace House.
Schneller said Friday morning in an interview on Voice of Israel government radio that most Kadima legislators, including Prime Minister Ehud Olmert "will have a different opinion" than Peretz on the matter.
"Everything was done according to the law,” said Schneller, and if Prime Minister Olmert is convinced that the building was legally purchased, the government will not support the Defense Minister.”
Peretz will probably have to coordinate plans for the expulsion with the Prime Minister in order to implement his order.
The Kadima platform, which is the basis for the coalition that includes the Labor party, calls for the development of the Jewish community of Hevron.
Peretz ordered the expulsion on Thursday using the left-wing groups’ strategy of claiming the residents did not receive authorization to live there, even if it was legally purchased.
Left-wing groups had appealed to the Defense Minister to enforce his seldom-used power to prohibit Jews from living in buildings in Judea and Samaria without the Ministry's permission.
The building was sold to the Jews by a Jordanian businessman two years ago for $700,000. The former owner has since been arrested and charged with selling property to a Jew, a capital offense under both Jordanian and Palestinian Authority law.
Scheller accused Peretz hours after the decision that he had ordered the expulsion in order to gain support in the Labor party prior to the leadership primaries set for late May. Peretz is hoping to retain his post as Chairman but is trailing in the polls.
Kadima Knesset faction leader Avigdor Itzhaki also expressed his support for the Jewish residents of Peace House in a visit Thursday afternoon with the leader of the opposition Likud Knesset faction Gidon Saar.
Both men explained that they visited the house in order to show support for the beleaguered Hevron Jewish community, which they commented “is forced to cope with many difficulties.”
Saar accused the Defense Minister of ignoring the strategic importance of the structure. Peace House is built on a rise which overlooks the road from Kiryat Arba where PA terrorists gunned down 12 IDF soldiers and local security volunteers four years ago. He also warned Peretz that he would fail in his bid to use the expulsion as a way of gaining popularity with the Labor party rank-and-file.
National Union Knesset Member Uri Ariel also warned Peretz Thursday night that he and other Knesset Members will stand with the Hevron Jews if he carries out the order.
Rabbis from the Save the Land of Israel Committee called on the Defense Minister to reconsider his decision, which they called an affront to Jewish heritage.
The Yesha Council of Jewish communities in Judea and Samaria has also said it would fight the order.
IDF officials said they have not received an official schedule for the expulsion. The order now rests with legal advisers and might take weeks to implement, according to a source in the Defense Ministry.
The Jordanian businessman now sits in a Jail cell awaiting his death. There is no appeal. He is guilty of selling a little piece of land with a run down building located in the Holy Land to a Jew. Not for having taken advantage of the Jew in what is recognized worldwide as highway robbery, but because he had the business deal with a Jew. He could have sold it to any other ethnic group, and he would be free. It is because he sold it to a Jew that Islam demands his death. Notice there is no UN resolutions against Jordan, or any other Islamic country for enforcing such a despicable anti-Semitic laws. There was no outcry when Hitler did the exact same thing. This law is attributed solely to the Koran, and Islamic law. Imagine here in America if we had a law with the penalty of death for anyone selling American land to a Blackman, or a Mexican? The whole world would be on us like flies on flypaper. The Apartied government of South Africa fell because of similar world disgust at such open prejudice against Blackmen by a government. Yet, because these are Jews, and not Blackmen, or Mexicans there is silence. Because this is Islamic law rather then Biblical law, the world community has nothing to say.
Hebron was lost to Islam in 1967. The God of the Bible in one decisive move wiped Islam out of the Holy Land. Hebron is where the Cave of Machpelah is located.
— portion; double cave, the cave which Abraham bought, together with the field in which it stood, from Ephron the Hittite, for a family burying-place (Genesis 23). It is one of those Bible localities about the identification of which there can be no doubt. It was on the slope of a hill on the east of Hebron, "before Mamre." Here were laid the bodies of Abraham and Sarah, Isaac and Rebekah, Jacob and Leah (Genesis 23:19; 25:9; 49:31; 50:13). Over the cave an ancient Christian church was erected, probably in the time of Justinian, the Roman emperor. This church has been converted into a Mohammedan mosque. The whole is surrounded by the el-Haram i.e., "the sacred enclosure," about 200 feet long, 115 broad, and of an average height of about 50. This building, from the immense size of some of its stones, and the manner in which they are fitted together, is supposed by some to have been erected in the days of David or of Solomon, while others ascribe it to the time of Herod. It is looked upon as the most ancient and finest relic of Jewish architecture.

It does not take a scientist to look at the ashlars of the Temple Mount foundation and the ashlars of the Tomb of Abraham to recognize they are both made by the same builder. The only reason why everyone does not acknowledge the Tomb goes back to the days of King Herod is because Islam goes into a fit whenever confronted with the truth that many of their most important, and oldest mosques in the Holy Land are built upon Jewish foundations. It is politics not science that prevents universal agreement that Herod rebuilt the Tomb of Abraham at the same time he rebuilt the Second Temple on the Temple Mount. It is a shame that many Christian scholars bow to Islamic intimidation when they write their books. They want their works accepted by the big liberal universities so they perpetuate the Islamic lies for the sake of all the liberal students and teachers.
The liberal secular Jewish politicians also want to get along with their liberal New York and Hollywood brothers They are doing all they can to take Hebron out of Jewish control, and give it to the barbarians. When Islam is not busy killing Jews they are having temper tantrums before the liberals of this generation where they find a bleeding heart. Death for the Jordanian businessman is the acceptable sentence for any who would stand in the way of the liberal movement of this generation. The Bible is out, and the Koran is in! Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob are out, and Abraham, Ishmael, and Esau are in. Hebron is a symbol of where this generation is willingly placing their heart. It is reason enough for judgment, but God is allowing the winepress to overflow. Not just Islam, but the entire world is being allowed to crawl into the fierce winepress of the wrath of God.
Friend, the year of the redeemed comes with great judgment. The only redeemer found in the Bible is the LORD Jesus Christ. There is no other. The Koran has no redeemer. It only encourages all men to die for Allah. Satan does not want to rule earth forever. He knows it has only a temporary existence. What Satan wants to do is destroy all of mankind. He hates God, and he hates God's creation. The fools of this earth believe him when he calls himself Allah. They will follow him unto their death. Friend, only in Christ is there life!

Thousands of policemen deploy in J'lem for 'Holy Fire' ceremony
By Amiram Barkat, Haaretz Correspondent, and Haaretz Service
Thousands of police deployed on Saturday in the old city of Jerusalem and volunteers helped prevent automobiles from entering the Old City in preparation for the 'Holy Fire' ceremony held in the Church of the Holy Sepulchre on Saturday afternoon. Police limited entry to the Old City to pilgrims and pedestrians with permits.
Before he descends into the tomb, the
Patriarch is examined by Israeli
authorities to prove that he has no means of lighting the fire.
In recent years, a dispute has erupted between Greek and Armenian Orthodox officials over whether or not Armenian priests can enter the tomb with the Greek Patriarch to observe the descent of the 'holy flame' from the heavens.
The right of different Christian denominations to worship in the church has been assured since it was made a matter of official policy under the Ottoman Empire in 1852. The policy made that the Greek Patriarch the officiating authority over the church, followed by the Armenian, and Catholic religious leadership.
Here is a good challenge for the "myth busters" of television fame. I have no doubts there are several ways to start a fire without matches that could get past Israeli inspectors. Here is another attempt by the Christian Orthodox Priesthood to deceive the public. They must rely on magic, and mysticism because the ability to perform real Biblical miracles is beyond their power. These are the guys who want the world to believe they have power to turn bread into the literal flesh of Christ, and wine into the literal blood of Christ as they claim this holy fire is just another such manifestation of their power. These guys will all find their place in hell as they try to usurp the miracle working power of the LORD Jesus Christ. All of them, Russian Orthodox, Greek Orthodox, Roman Catholic, and Armenian Orthodox, all of them snooker their gullible followers to come to them confessing sin of which they piously ascribe religious penance exercises that they authoritively tell the susceptible to do so that their sin will be forgiven. What blasphemous piety these Orthodox Priests presume they have! I tell you true as great a lie as they tell about their mystical powers in the mass is as big a lie this holy fire has been since 106 AD. Only the pagan mystical rituals working the crowds into emotional frenzy can come close to what these Orthodox Christian Priests do to the crowds on holy fire day. How sad that they demean the real miracles of the Bible with their charlatan trickery.
I remember the first time world wide television covered the election of a new pope, and the white and black smoke that rose from the Vatican after each vote. The color of the smoke was attributed to a miracle until put under the scrutiny of the world press. When the press was confronted with televising an actual miracle from God, they pressured the Priests to come clean. "Are we witnessing, and televising to the World a real miracle from the God of the Bible?" The Roman Catholics thought better, and admitted the priest who burnt the ballads put a chemical in the fire that produced either a white or black smoke. They knew the old miracle of the priesthood could not stand the test of world scrutiny. I know holy fire will fall by the wayside if ever subjected to the same scrutiny. These miracles of the Orthodox Priesthood are poppycock!
Real Biblical miracles are few, and far between. God only uses them at strategic times while He reveals His progressive plan for mankind through the passage of time. The calling out of the Jews from Egypt was a strategic time. The revelation of the Jewish Messiah was another strategic time of great miracles along with the establishment of the Christian Church before the religionists got their corrupting hands on things. Miracles will again be manifested when the Two witnesses of Revelation 11 begin their ministry in the city of Jerusalem. Every time God introduces a new dispensation miracles accompany the time to prove it is of God. Real Biblical miracles, and the authority of God go hand in hand. The Orthodox Christian Priests realized this truth, and so tried to produce the appearance of miracles to give them authority that God never intended. The modern Charismatic movement follows the corrupted Orthodox Christian Priesthood in using mysticism, and magic to sway the gullible to think they have the authority of God. They have used "born again" mixing it with their phony healing meetings trying to convince all that they speak with the authority of the God of the bible. The so called miracle workers of the Charismatic movement such as Benny Hinn and Pat Robertson are filled with even more poppycock then the Orthodox Christian Priests.
Friend, the real miracles of the Bible are centered in the resurrection of the LORD Jesus Christ. Do not let the phony miracles of today's Christians take away the potency of what happened on that first Easter morning. Do not let the lying Priests, and Charismatic miracle workers dull your mind when it comes to the supernatural powers of Christ. The Bible is clear! Christ is the only Savior. Only He has the power to save. It is His blood that can wash away sin. There is no where else to go but to Christ. Don't let the lying religionists give you a false sense of salvation through their corrupted theologies. you must come to Christ for the forgiveness of your sins. Have you come to Him through prayer? Is it Him upon where your faith and trust rests? Charismatic leaders must learn to be actors if they want success in this phony miracle movement. The name of the LORD Jesus Christ is only used by them as they seek fame and fortune. Their christ is the christ of the money changers that the Biblical Christ drove out of God's House. The christ of phony miracles is powerless to save. Only the Christ of the Bible has the power. The same holds true for the christ of the Orthodox Christian Priesthood. They would find themselves in the same position as the prophets of Baal who confronted Elijah if their magic tricks were taken away. The faithful would go into all sorts of self flagellation the longer they waited for a holy fire that would never come!. Friend, the Christ of the Bible never makes such foolish demands of those who are His own. He loves them too much. The Christ of the Bible would never expect one He loves to thrash around on the floor in some kind of exotic trance. Leave all the paganism introduced to Christianity by these corrupted religionists, and come to the real miracle working Christ of the Bible.
23Then if any man shall say unto you, Lo, here is Christ, or there; believe it not.
24For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect.
25Behold, I have told you before.

(IsraelNN.com) The round-the-clock news updates of IsraelNationalNews.com discontinue at this time in honor of the Passover holiday. Jerusalem candle lighting time is 6:27 p.m. (Sunday). The updates will resume Monday night, several hours following the conclusion of the Sabbath at 7:44 p.m. During the holiday, the Jewish People are prohibited by Jewish Law from engaging in any type of work, including updating of the site.
An Arab-fired Kassam rocket slammed into a factory in the industrial section of Sderot Saturday afternoon. No injuries were reported in the attack, but the factory’s warehouse was damaged in the rocket strike.
On Friday, the IDF fired two missiles at a terrorist cell in northern Gaza, killing one terrorist and wounding two others. The terror group had been planting explosives along the route of the border fence between Gaza and Israel. The helicopter strike was the first since Israel declared a ceasefire with the Palestinian Authority in November. While Israel has refrained from operating in Gaza during the period, terrorists from the region have pounded Israeli towns with Kassam rockets.
Ultra-Orthodox youths clash with police in J'lem hametz protestBy Yair Ettinger and Jonathan Lis, Haaretz Correspondents
Some 100 Ultra-Orthodox Jewish youths clashed with police in Jerusalem on Sunday morning, protesting the sale of hametz (leavened bread) during the week of Passover in Jerusalem restaurants.
The conflict began after a rally that took place near Shabbat Square in the Mea Shearim neighborhood. At the end of the rally, the protestors sought to march towards Hillel Street, an area which contains a number of restaurants that sell hametz and non-kosher meat. Police refused to allow the march and instructed the protestors to disperse.
Some youngsters succeeded in blocking the street with trash cans and piles of wood. The police then tried to disperse the crowd by force, which led a few iltra-Orthdox Jews to throw rocks at the police.
Heads of the ultra-Orthodox community used a public address system in Mea Shearim to instruct the residents to go and join the protest and try and reach the restaurants. In the end, some 20 protestors managed to reach Hillel Street and demonstrate there. The fact that the first branches of the Aroma and Hillel cafe chains are situated on Hillel Street gave the protest a symbolic significance for the Orthodox Jews.
Another group of ultra-Orthodox Jews tried to reach the Nahalat Shiva promenade in central Jerusalem, but they were effectively blocked on Rabbi Kook Street by police forces.
Jewish Law,. Islamic Law, and Biblical Law are all different. Jewish Law is concerned with the trivial. They are more concerned about straining the gnat from their wine then they are in understanding righteousness of the heart. Christ warned the Jews of the leaven of the Scribes and Pharoses, but the Jews rather chose their legalistic sages over their loving Messiah.
24Ye blind guides, which strain at a gnat, and swallow a camel.
25Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye make clean the outside of the cup and of the platter, but within they are full of extortion and excess.
26Thou blind Pharisee, cleanse first that which is within the cup and platter, that the outside of them may be clean also.
27Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye are like unto whited sepulchres, which indeed appear beautiful outward, but are within full of dead men's bones, and of all uncleanness.
28Even so ye also outwardly appear righteous unto men, but within ye are full of hypocrisy and iniquity.
It was Christ who confronted the Jews with true Biblical Law, but they rejected both Himself and the Bible. They would rather stain at the gnat then accept the perfection of the Law that Christ represented. Jesus took Biblical Law to new heights never conceived by sinful men. Jesus revealed the holiness behind the Law when he told men it was not just the act of sin, but the very thought of sin that condemned! Woe to the whited sepulchers of today's Judaism who following the lead of the Sadducees, and Pharisees keep straining at the gnat. They just can't grasp that it is impossible for sin filled men to meet the perfect standards of a Holy God.
28But I say unto you, That whosoever looketh on a woman to lust after her hath committed adultery with her already in his heart.
Only Christ met the perfect standard because he alone was the perfect man. Born miraculously of a virgin He was perfect from beginning to end of His earthly ministry. His standards turned the religious Jews of His day into hypocrites. His righteousness was above human ability. There was no way that the majority of Jews of that generation were going to make Him King. Never would they submit to such a high standard of perfection. The sages gave them a lower standard to which they flocked. A less holy god who would be satisfied with ritualistic holiness rather then the real thing. A god satisfied with the ritualistic straining of the gnat as meeting his requirements. This is the leaven, or the doctrine of the Sadducees and Pharisees that has corrupted Biblical Law into Jewish Law.
Friend, this present generation is no better prepared for the Kingdom of Christ then was the generation of His first coming. The perfection of holiness that He sets as His standard is as hated today as it ever was. Men want the freedom to sin. They hate anyone placing puritanical standards on their freedom. The LORD Jesus Christ came the first time to pay the penalty for sin. He is coming again in the same sinless perfection as at the first, but this time He is coming to rule! The sin for which He died will be outlawed. The standard will be even to the thoughts of men. Puritanical justice will control the entire planet. The perfect King who knows even the thoughts of men will rule with a rod of iron! Only those with changed hearts will love to submit to this kind of perfect holiness. The masses will reject Him as they did at His first coming, but this time He is coming in judgment. Friend, if you can't stand according to His perfect righteousness, you will be judged. You need to be redeemed! It is the blood of Christ's perfect sacrifice at Calvary that provides redemption. Won't you come to Him today for that redemption? Is is a free gift of grace offered to all lost sinners who come. Christ has the power to change your heart. The resurection is the proof. The decision to come is yours. Won't you come?

PA Official: Return Church of the Nativity Terrorists
IsraelNN.com) Palestinian Authority officials are calling for the terrorists responsible for the standoff at Bethlehem’s Church of the Nativity five years ago to be allowed to return to Israel.
The 40-day standoff ended with the terrorists agreeing to go into exile to avoid arrest by Israel.
PA Legislative Council official Issa Karaka has issued a call for Israel not only to allow the 39 exiled terrorists to return, but to hand over the bodies of the terrorists killed in the clashes, according to the PNN PA news agency.
Thirteen of the terrorists were deported to European countries that accepted them and 26 were sent to Gaza.
These are the thugs who used the Church of Nativity as a refuge after going on a killing spree in Bethlehem. The Pope was quick to grant them sanctuary siding with the Arab Palestinians over the Jews. Islam was driving the Christians out of Bethlehem at the time, but the Pope wanted the world to see that Roman Catholics would rather have the Islamic barbarians in control of Bethlehem then the Jews. Arafat at the time had claimed the front lawn of the Church of Nativity for Islam, and was planning to build a mosque there that would block view of this ancient Church even blocking the main entrance for Christians. The Pope was undeterred. Catholic doctrine id built upon replacement theology. The Catholic Church claimed all future blessings the Bible said would be for the Jewish people. The Catholic Church would replace the Jews in the Bible for all eternity future. The rank and file flocked to this new radical theology because it meant they would control the coming Kingdom. They would receive all the future blessings for the sole reason that they were Catholic. The rest of the Christian denominations followed suit except that the Lutherans claimed they would receive the Jewish blessings. The Greek Orthodox did the same, and so on until all of Christendom were making claims to the coming Kingdom with each sect telling their gullible followers that they were the blessed over all the others. What no one wanted to hear was that the literal Jews to whom the Bible promised the Kingdom were now back in the Land where the promised Kingdom was going to be ushered into existence. Replacement theology was dealt a death blow. Everyone thought the tiny Jewish nation of Israel would be wiped off the map by the Islamic barbarians, but they not only survived. They even prospered! It was almost impossible to deny the hand of God on the Jews. The Pope and the rest of the Replacement Theologians were not going to admit they fed the world false doctrine. Their best hope right now is that the Palestinian Arab barbarians will drive the Jews out of the Holy Land. They can put up with any other group other then the Jews controlling in the Holy Land. It keeps their theology viable. Some far future day their Christian sect will take control, and then the Kingdom will come. However, the literal Jews as the Bible literally predicts as the recipients of the coming Kingdom makes them out for the lairs that they are.
The Palestinian barbarians paid the Pope back for his granting sanctuary by first desecrating all the holy objects in the Church, and then trying to burn it down before they pulled out. The barbarians granted amnesty, and exile in Europe mostly ended up in jail for crimes they committed while living in their host countries. Now, the Palestinian Authority is demanding the Jews take them back to Bethlehem so they can continue terrorizing the Jews, and Christians directly. I'm sure the Pope, and many of the Christian denominations will add their support pressuring the Jews to give them all pardons. Anyone, but the Jews is the call coming out of the ransacking of the Church of the Nativity. They will all deny that their Replacement Theology is anti-Semitic, and anti-Bible, but they will never give it up until Christ comes again as the Jewish Messiah. He will expose the Christian equivalent to the Sadducees and Pharisees as the hypocrites that they are, and establish His coming Kingdom on perfect righteousness denouncing all religion. Only Christ, and the Bible will stand when the Kingdom comes. Only those who have submitted to the perfect righteous rule of Christ will survive. Jesus has already told His Jewish audience with only a smattering of gentiles who will inherit His Kingdom. Will you be there?

Vatican threatens to boycott Holocaust Memorial Day ceremony in J'lem
Archbishop Franco said that in his letter he advised the Holocaust museum he "would not feel comfortable going to Yad Vashem" unless the wording was amended or the photo removed.
The Vatican ambassador to Israel threatened on Thursday to boycott a Holocaust memorial ceremony next week over a museum's portrayal of Pope Pius XII's conduct during the Nazis' killing of Jews in World War Two.
Archbishop Antonio Franco said he had written to the director of the Yad Vashem Holocaust Museum asking for the revision of a caption suggesting the wartime Pope had been apathetic to the Jews' plight.
The caption, quoted in the Israeli press, says Pope Pius XII "abstained from signing the Allied declaration condemning the extermination of the Jews" and "maintained his neutral position throughout the war."
It is not just Islam that redacts history to paint them in a good light. They learned from the masters how to intimidate until all that is left of the factual record is their own version. The all powerful Pope whom the Roman Catholics call the Holy Father, the vicar who speaks for the God of the Bible here on earth, cringe when the truth is revealed about the papacy of Pius XII. His piety crashes as his vicious ant-Semitism is revealed. I don't think the Vatican is asking the Jews to recant their records on Pius XII for now, but they are demanding that truth of his attitude toward the Jews during WW II be removed from public display. It brings light to the popeship that the Catholics don't like. Pius XII lost all his credibility to the generation that lived through his reign, but Roman Catholics want this present generation to be spared that truth. Who knows? Catholics might even start questioning the motives of the present Pope? It was the religious leaders of His day that Christ was most upset. They took the holiness of God and dragged it down into the slime of organized religion. They were put in the same category of vipers and hypocrites. Mankind has not changed, and the religious leaders of today are as guilty when the real holiness of the God of the Bible is brought to light. Just as Jesus brought Biblical righteousness to light at His first coming, so also will He expose the same type religious hypocrites at His second coming. The gentiles have had 2000 years of the Christian Church era to show what they are able to accomplish. Today's Christianity has proven even more corrupt then Judaism ever became under the Sadducees and Pharisees. I have no doubt as Christ exposes today's leaders to their own hypocrisy that they will be first to turn on Him. They will demand a christ of their own making that made them the big shots they are today. Never will they step aside relinquishing their prestige and power to the meek and lowly. Never will they give up their top dog status to the poor and humble.
Friend, will Christ brand you a hypocrite when He applies Biblical holiness standards to your life? I know I am guilty. I know I can't meet the perfect standards the Bible puts before me. I also know the reign of Christ for the next 1000 years will confront me with these very standards.
21 I find then a law, that, when I would do good, evil is present with me.
22For I delight in the law of God after the inward man:
23But I see another law in my members, warring against the law of my mind, and bringing me into captivity to the law of sin which is in my members.
24O wretched man that I am! who shall deliver me from the body of this death?
25I thank God through Jesus Christ our Lord. So then with the mind I myself serve the law of God; but with the flesh the law of sin.
8There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.
2For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made me free from the law of sin and death.
Friend, would you like to be free from the law of sin and death? Only a Savior can save you. Only the LORD Jesus Christ can wash away your sin changing your heart into one that desires righteousness. Not the righteousness of men, but the righteousness of God! Come to Christ dear friend, and allow Him to do His miraculous work in your heart. Allow Him to make you fit for life in the perfect future He offers. Friend, you must be born again!

Hamas arming Islamic Jihad
"Political party" actively participating in terror
Hamas, the Palestinian terror group turned political party, is arming Islamic Jihad with Kassam rockets to fire at southern Israeli cities, security sources said yesterday. While Hamas is maintaining a front of abiding by the cease-fire with Israel, the group is aiding terror groups such as Islamic Jihad with behind-the-scenes transactions of weapons and money. It is believed that Hamas provided Islamic Jihad with the Russian-made rockets that were used to target the southern coastal Israeli city of Ashkelon in June last year.
The Islamic barbarians are a people of hate. They will never be peaceful as long as they worship the Arabic god of the barbarians. Brother against brother is the penalty for their barbarianism, and the Jews have benefited from all the disunity that all this hate produces. A dangerous turn is taking place in Arab occupied Gaza. While the barbarian Hamas, and the barbarian Fatah are killing each other in a power struggle to control the Gaza, the Hamas terrorists are arming Fatah with Russian made rockets coming into their possession from Iran. Hamas is setting aside their natural brutish hate for their Fatah rivals in order to kill Jews.
It is the real God of the Bible who puts the heathen against each other frustrating their plans for global destruction. It is also God who uses the heathen to chasten His rebellious children. Dispensational change is coming to the Jews of Israel. The greatest chastening of all times will be necessary to turn the rebellious hearts of today's Jews back to the Biblical God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. A small remnant will respond at the start, but it will take seven long years of a time the world has never seen for God to convert the majority of the nation. God is already preparing for this great chastening or tribulation. The Islamic barbarians are being used first to set the stage for an Islamic invasion of Israel. Even though the barbarians kill each other as quickly as they kill what they call the infidels, they will unite for a moment. The call to invade Israel, and hunt down every Jew as prey will have the same response as Hamas now is extending to Fatah.
11And thou shalt say, I will go up to the land of unwalled villages; I will go to them that are at rest, that dwell safely, all of them dwelling without walls, and having neither bars nor gates,
12To take a spoil, and to take a prey; to turn thine hand upon the desolate places that are now inhabited, and upon the people that are gathered out of the nations, which have gotten cattle and goods, that dwell in the midst of the land.
Folks, Islam is going to be used by the God of the Bible to chasten His children! He is going to bring the Jews of Israel to the brink of disaster, but then He is going to save them from the Islamic barbarians come to exterminate them. The whole purpose of this coming invasion will be that the glory of God be revealed to both the Jews and the heathen. There will be no doubt from then on that the God of the Bible is the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob not the god of Abraham, Ishmael, and Esau. The heathen will only harden their hearts, but the Jewish heart will begin to crack.
7So will I make my holy name known in the midst of my people Israel; and I will not let them pollute my holy name any more: and the heathen shall know that I am the Lord, the Holy One in Israel.
8Behold, it is come, and it is done, saith the Lord God; this is the day whereof I have spoken.
That day is quickly approaching. God is going to use the heathen to bring the Jews to their senses. God is going to use the heathen to turn the Jewish heart of stone into a heart of flesh! The invaders coming to exterminate the Jews will suddenly find God opening old squabbles among the barbarians to destroy themselves. Arab against non-Arab, Shiite against Sunni, Hamas against Fatah. It will all be Islamic brother against Islamic brother on the mountains and in the fields of Israel as God brings an end to the barbarians. Islamic influence over the Holy Land will end forever, and the Jews will be free to build the Last Holy Jewish Temple on the Temple Mount.
21And I will call for a sword against him throughout all my mountains, saith the Lord God: every man's sword shall be against his brother.
Oh friend, do you know Christ as your personal Savior? He is coming again to the Holy Land, Jerusalem, and the Temple Mount. He is coming to redeem the Jews. Has your heart been changed by the soul cleansing blood of the Lamb? Only those who are born again will be fit to enter into His coming Kingdom. The rest are doomed to judgment and death. Oh friend, come to Christ and live. The recompense of the Holy God of the Bible is terrible. The rebels of both the Jews and heathen will find God a fearsome foe. Make your peace with this Holy God of the Bible by coming to His only begotten Son. The Savior He sent to redeem the lost of His creation. Won't you come to Christ?

by Hillel Fendel
(IsraelNN.com) Some 5,000 Jews availed themselves last night (Thursday) of the IDF's offer to safeguard the area of the Arab village of Kifel Heres so that they could visit the holy sites. The area lies immediately to the north of the city of Ariel.
Twice a year, the security forces enable Jews to visit the holy gravesites of Joshua bin Nun and Calev ben Yefuneh, who led the Israelites in their conquest of the Holy Land, and that of Joshua's father Nun. Some 5,000 visitors arrived throughout last night, experiencing the unusual sensation of walking freely through an Arab village without fear of attack. The three graves are interspersed among the village's houses; two of them are housed by dome-like structures, while Nun's grave is marked only with a large concrete mound.
Most worshipers arrived first at the grave of Calev, who led the Tribe of Judah in conquering Hevron. They then walked a few hundreds meters to the north to the burial place of Joshua, and then to the west where lies his father. Joshua and Calev were the only ones of the 12 Spies dispatched by Moses who returned with an encouraging report of the Land of Israel.
Pamphlets with special prayers were handed out to the thousands of visitors. The prayers included mentions of the special merit of the three holy men in that they experienced the Exodus from Egypt, the receiving of the Torah on Mt. Sinai, and the conquest of the Promised Land.
The event was organized by the Shomron Local Religious Council. "People came from far and near," said one organizer, "representing the hareidi, hassidic, religious-Zionist and traditional sectors. It was moving to see them all come together to proclaim the call of Joshua and Calev, 'Let us ascend to the Land and inherit it, for we will be able to succeed.'"
Pupils of local elementary schools were on hand to celebrate their completion of the Book of Joshua. The "Aleinu" prayer, traditionally attributed to Joshua, was recited repeatedly.
"We see that the public votes with its feet on behalf of Judaism's holy site," an organizer said, "without consideration of separation fences, inclement weather [it began drizzling around 1:30 AM], or the late hour."
Dov Shapira, head of the local religious council, gave a deluxe edition of the Bible, accompanied by Joshua's blessing "Be strong and of great courage," to the head of the IDF Nachshon Regiment, in recognition of the army's cooperation in the complex operation.
The organizers now wish to visit Joseph's Tomb in Shechem, where the stakes are higher: Joseph is the son of the Patriarch Jacob, and prayers at his burial site carry special merit - while on the other hand, Shechem is more dangerous for Jews than the little village Kifel Hares.
Be strong and of great courage should cause the majority of secular liberal Jews to hang their heads in shame. Where Joshua and Caleb were instrumental in the conquering of Jericho this generation of political Jews gave Jericho to the Palestinian barbarians as part of the Gaza retreat. The Gaza and Jericho have become occupied territory only because this generation of Jews have no courage. They have the strength, but they lack the fortitude to follow the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. The great miracle of 1967 that gave Jericho, all of Judah and Samaria, the entire city of Jerusalem, and absolute sovereignty over the Temple Mount is now being rejected by the political Jews of this generation. They are treating the blessings of the Six Day War as a curse! They can't move fast enough to retreat, and give everything to the Islamic barbarians.
These secular Jews of this generation are about to drag the whole world into Great Tribulation. It is not that this world is ripe for judgment, but that God has every intent to bring the promised redemption of the Jews to this generation no matter what! It will only be when the Jews are redeemed that they will be able to obey the law which God gave to Moses. Only redeemed Jews will be able to offer blood sacrifices in remembrance of Calvary that will be acceptable to the Holy God of the Bible as He demands in the coming dispensation. Only redeemed Jews will be able to build the next kosher Holy Jewish Temple, and worship acceptably in this coming structure. The Jewish majority must come to know Christ as their personal Savior. They must be "born again." They must have a circumcised heart before God will accept them as His people. All this is linked to the Promised Land for it is to the Holy Land, the city of Jerusalem, and the Temple Mount where Christ is prophesied to return! He is coming as the rightful King of the Jews. He is coming in great power and glory. He is coming to claim His inheritance of the entire planet won at Calvary.
God has determined that Jesus Christ will be coming to a redeemed people. He will not be rejected a second time. He will come to a people steadfast, and refined through the fires of Great Tribulation. They will not be like the lily livered secular majority we see today cowering in the face of the Islamic barbarians. The cowards, and faint hearted will have long been removed. These will be Jews of the character of Joshua and Caleb. Honorable men ready to face the entire gentile world as they stand with their coming Messiah. Tiny little Israel will challenge all the gentile nations with all their overwhelming power, and demand of them that they bow down to their Jewish King.
It all will start with a tiny remnant of Two Jewish Witnesses, and 144,000 Jews called out of the tribal lands originally conquered by Joshua and Caleb. This small remnant will re-establish Biblical Judaism in the Holy Land. They will reject the Jewish hypocrites of today, and begin leading the nation to Christ. It will not be the gentile Christ of the Church, but a truly Biblical Christ coming again to be the redeemer of the Jews first. The promised Messiah for which more honorable Jews have prayed through the millennium.
Caleb was not a natural born Jew. He was the son of a Canaanite barbarian, and probably why his father is not buried in the Holy Land as is Nun the natural born Jewish father of Joshua. God has made provision for the gentile stranger not only to fit into an all Jewish economy, but to rise to positions of great honor. Friend, no matter what economy in which dispensation may be operating, it is only Christ who saves. Either when looked forward to His first coming, or looking back to Calvary, it is only Christ that can redeem lost sinners. Blood sacrifice for sin has always been the only solution from the Holy God of the Bible. Only the blood of Christ provides the single atonement for sin that is acceptable to God. The coming Holy Jewish Temple will have an altar and blood sacrifices will be demanded as a critical part of worship in the next dispensation. To obey God is to sacrifice in the coming Kingdom Age. There will be only one acceptable place for that sacrifice, and that will be at the altar of the next Holy Jewish Temple to be built on the Temple Mount. Only Jews, or acceptable gentile strangers such as Caleb converted to the Jewish God who sent His only begotten Son will be allowed entrance into the place of sacrifice. They will have to be redeemed. They will have to be born again. They will have to have a circumcised heart. What about you? Do you qualify, or will blood sacrifice be denied? The decision is yours, and yours alone. Won't you come to this Christ of the Bible? The law of Moses is soon to be obeyed! The book of Leviticus will require the Children of God to observe to do it not just talk about it as is done today. The blood of Christ will have to have been applied to the heart before the demanded remembrance blood can be shed at the altar. Friend, will you be allowed to enter?

Hamas Issues Islamic Call For Genocide on PA Television
by Ezra HaLevi
(IsraelNN.com) While Hamas has sought, since its Mecca Agreement with Fatah, to strike a moderate tone in order to renew international funding, it continues the calls for genocide of Jews.
The Islamic barbarians know exactly where they are going in the Holy Land. Allah has made it abundantly clear that only with the extermination of all the Jews of Israel will he bring the Islamic paradise to earth. A blood bath that will include Americans who supported the Jews must be initiated by the faithful before Allah will act. This is not the voice of a few radicals as the politicians, and media would have us believe. This is the voice of Allah right out of the Koran! Islam has declared war on the God of the Bible who's plan was to bring the Jews back to the Holy Land as a preamble to the last days. A preamble to the coming of the Jewish Messiah. The Koran tells the gullible followers that the stones will speak revealing where a Jew needing extermination is hiding. The Bible also tells us of a day when the stones would have talked if the people would have remained silent. The blasphemer Mohamed read this passage in the Bible, and had to counter the truth with his own made up lie which he wrote in the Koran.
37And when he was come nigh, even now at the descent of the mount of Olives, the whole multitude of the disciples began to rejoice and praise God with a loud voice for all the mighty works that they had seen;
38Saying, Blessed be the King that cometh in the name of the Lord: peace in heaven, and glory in the highest.
39And some of the Pharisees from among the multitude said unto him, Master, rebuke thy disciples.
40And he answered and said unto them, I tell you that, if these should hold their peace, the stones would immediately cry out.
Now, which rendition about the stones do you believe? That they will reveal hiding Jews for the killing, or say "Blessed be the King that cometh in the name of the Lord: peace in heaven, and glory in the highest." Friend, can you clearly see the difference between the god of the Arab barbarians, and the God of the Bible? Can you understand what is at stake in the Holy Land for this generation to decide where to stand?
The Road Map that intends to give most of the Holy Land, almost the whole city of Jerusalem, and the sovereignty over the Temple Mount to the Arab barbarians is going to become the focus of the world in these last days and months. God is about to try this world of sin. The test will be tied to the future of the Holy Land. Will it be given to the barbarians, or saved for the coming Jewish King? Friend where do you stand?
10Because thou hast kept the word of my patience, I also will keep thee from the hour of temptation, which shall come upon all the world, to try them that dwell upon the earth.
11Behold, I come quickly: hold that fast which thou hast, that no man take thy crown.
Islam in this present struggle stands for the barbarian principles of death and destruction. The Bible on the other hand stands for peace in heaven, and glory in the highest. Real heavenly peace can only come to the world through the glory of Christ. God tells us that should we who know the Biblical future plan of God hold our peace remaining willfully disobedient and silent that the very stones would cry out the truth. The LORD Jesus Christ is coming again as the Jewish King of glory! The Holy Land, Jerusalem, and Temple Mount are no longer the property of the Arab barbarians. God gave it all to the Jews of this generation in preparation for the redemption of Israel. They can't be given away no matter how disobedient the Jews may be. It matters not how Biblically ignorant today's politicians have become, nothing is going to stop the return of Christ. Friend, the hour of temptation is here! Jesus is coming again! Are you holding fast, or are you completely out of the economy of the God of the Bible? Only those who are born again will wear a crown. Have you let the apathy of men take away the crown that could be yours?
2 Timothy 4:8
8Henceforth there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, shall give me at that day: and not to me only, but unto all them also that love his appearing.

by Tzvi Ben Gedalyahu
(IsraelNN.com) Muslim fundamentalists, aligned with Al Qaeda, bombed a Christian bookstore and two Internet cafes in Gaza on Saturday following previous attacks on churches as part of its religious crusade to replace the secular Fatah faction.
The "Sword of Islam" terrorist group took responsibility for the bombings of Internet cafes and music stores, which they consider an offense to the Muslim religion because they represent Western society.
The same group has issued warnings to Gaza women not to hang out in Internet cafes. The Swords of Islam has bombed more than a dozen Internet cafes in several weeks and destroyed the vehicle of one young man who was playing his radio tape at high volume. It also ordered women to wear a full-face veil.
Muslim courts in the Palestinian Authority (PA) increasingly operate as the moral authority over local areas, and one town in Samaria barred a music and dance festival.
The Muslim crusade has spread across the ocean to Minneapolis, Minnesota, where the local Community and Technology College last week was accused of promoting religion because it acceded to Muslim demands for foot-washing basins, used by Muslims before prayers. The Minneapolis Star Tribune noted that the same college removed a coffee cart form the campus because it was playing music related to Christmas.
College president Phil Davis explained that the foot-washing basins were allowed because "it is like when someone comes to your home, you want to be hospitable." When asked about the lack of a room for Christian prayers, he replied that the cafeteria served fish to Christians for Lent.
The Muslim activist organization on United States campuses, the Muslim Student Association, tells its members, "As Muslims, we are a nation elected by God to lead humanity."
However, the Muslim crusade in Gaza works directly against Christians.
Palestinian Authority (PA) police two months ago seized the six-story Gaza Baptist Church as an observation deck in violent clashes against Hamas. Police broke windows and broke down a door after church officials refused to give them the key.
Several months ago, another Muslim group attacked seven Gaza churches, including a 1,400-year-old Greek Orthodox structure, after Pope Benedict stated that some of the teachings of the Muslim prophet Mohammed are "evil and inhuman."
"Every place relevant to Christians will be a target," said a statement from The Army of Guidance. In Kalkilya, adjacent to Kfar Saba, the local Young Men's Christian Association headquarters (YMCA) was gutted by arsonists.
Muslims have become the majority in formerly Christian cities of Nazareth and Bethlehem, where non-Muslims have suffered constant persecution and discrimination, causing a further exodus of Christians. Last year, Muslims went on a rampage against Christians in a Galilee town, setting cars and stores on fire.
Folks, our government and news media tell us Allah is the same god as the God of the Bible so we should be brothers. They tell us it is only a small insignificant smattering of radicals among the Moslems that are causing all the trouble. Folks, they are telling us lies! We are in the process of pulling out of Iraq giving Islam the greatest moral victory since the crusades. These puffed up Islamite's will be at the doors of not just Minneapolis, but every city in the US demanding submission to the Sword of Islam. People who are rich, and in need of nothing, such as the president of that local technical college, do not resist when the barbarian comes knocking at the door. They would rather pay the demanded tribute then get out of their feathered bed. How long will it be before the Sword of Islam comes knocking on your communities door?
The Bible offers us an alternative to the Sword of Islam. It is the Sword of the LORD! Puritanical righteousness without spot or blemish is the plan of God for the next dispensation. The Kingdom Age ruled over by the soon coming King of Glory. A 1000 year era of perfect law administrated by the only perfect King who shed His perfect blood as the only atonement for sin that is acceptable to the only true Holy Father. The LORD Jesus Christ paid the price at Calvary for the title deed of the world. Lost sinners have the door of salvation open. The Old Testament saints looked forward to the day when the Jewish Messiah would come. He came! He came to the Holy Land, the city of Jerusalem, and to the last standing Holy Jewish Temple. He is coming again in like manner. However, He is not coming in the same character as that of the suffering servant to die again. This time He is coming as the LORD of hosts mighty in battle. He is coming wielding the Sword of the LORD! The Bible says He will rule with a rod of iron! His perfect law will be obeyed! He will have the power to enforce His statues and ordinances on the entire planet. It is going to start in the Holy Land, at Jerusalem, and on the Temple Mount. The Sword of Islam will be crushed under the mighty power of Biblical righteousness. Only the Sword of the LORD will be victorious. The LORD Jesus Christ has no need of help. The Bible says He is going to crush the nations! Their great armies will be tossed into the winepress of His wrath. Only the poor, humble, and meek will survive to rule with Christ. A new beginning is planed with the new dispensation. A time when the most vulnerable, the little children, will be perfectly safe. Safe from the liberal minded mothers of this generation who flock to the abortion mills by the millions. Safe from those who would wield the Sword of Islam. Safe in the loving arms of Jesus.
Friend, you too can find this same refuge. You too can be safe in the arms of Jesus. He paid the price for your sin at Calvary, and now He awaits your coming to Him for forgiveness. He charges nothing. He has the power not only to save, but to change your heart. Only those who are born again desire the puritanical righteousness of the Bible. All others resist such perfect standards being imposed on them. This generation demands the right to sin. They want freedom not puritanical dominance. They push out of the arms of Christ for the world, the flesh, and the devil. It is your decision dear friend. Which sword do you want to rule over your future? One is the way of death and destruction. The other is the way to life eternal. Friend, come to Christ and find rest. The Bible says that rest shall be glorious!
15And if it seem evil unto you to serve the Lord, choose you this day whom ye will serve; whether the gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of the flood, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land ye dwell: but as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.

Slain Israeli Professor Saved Others in Va. Tech Massacre
by Gil Ronen
(IsraelNN.com) As Israel observed Holocaust Day, thousands of mlies away, A Rumanian-born Holocaust survivor gave his life in another senseless murder - and apparently in an act of heroism. Among the 32 people killed by a lone gunman at Virginia Tech Monday is 77 year old mechanics professor, Liviu Librescu, a citizen of Israel. According to eyewitness accounts, Livrescu ran to the door of his classroom and blocked it with his body – preventing the gunman from entering but getting shot to death himself as a result.
Alec Calhoun, a 20 year old student who had been in Librescu's class in room 204, told a reporter that at 9:05 a.m. the heard screams and a loud banging sound from the next door classroom. When the students realized it was gunfire, he said, some hid behind tables, and others leapt from the classroom's windows. Calhoun himself was among the last to jump. "Before I jumped from the window, I turned around and looked at the professor, who stayed behind, maybe to block the door. He had been killed."
Librescu is survived by his wife of 42 years, Marlena, who was with him in Virginia, and sons Aryeh and Joe who are in Israel. They intend to bury him in Israel.
Asael Arad, an Israeli student who visited the widow after the tragedy, told Army Radio Tuesday that Marlena had been receiving e-mails from students who credited Prof. Librescu with saving their lives. "I lost my best friend," the widow told a reporter for NRG at her home near the Blacksburg campus. "He was a great person, who loved teaching more than anything." Marlena said someone had initially informed her that her husband was injured in the shooting. "I looked for him in the hospitals all day but I didn't find him," she said.
The Librescus are Rumanian Jews who came on aliyah (immigrated to Israel) in 1978 – after then-Prime Minister Begin interceded on their behalf with the Rumanian government, according to Marlena. The couple went on a sabbatical to the United States since 1986 and has been living there ever since.
How sad to have survived the Nazi Holocaust only to die at the hands of some deranged student. The head of the Palestinian Authority Mr. Abbas wrote his doctorial theses denying the Holocaust, and calling this heroic Professor Librescu a liar in the process! Yet, world leaders kowtow to this modern day barbarian trying to negotiate with this liar who intends to rewrite history so that Jewish heroism is demeaned, and Islam is made to appear great through lying. Hitler tried to rewrite history. He tried to hide the Holocaust from the world. He convinced the German people that the Arians were the master race destine to rule the world. Abbas also is trying to rewrite history by denying the holocaust, and convincing the Moslems that they are the master religion destine to rule the world. The fall of the Nazis is nothing compared to the coming fall of Islam. The God of the Bible is about to cast Islam on the dung heap of all the other false religions in history. We are the generation that witnessed the revelation of the Holocaust. We witnessed God destroy the Jew hating Naziws. We witnessed the birth of the State of Israel, and we are about to witness the utter destruction of Islam howbeit from heaven after the rapture. Ezekiel 38 & 39 is a yet to be fulfilled prophecy about an Invasion of Israel. Today, it will be an Islamic invasion when the invaders home territories are identified. They are all Islamic! A three pronged Islamic invasion that ends in one of the most horrific chapters found in the Bible. Ezekiel 39 describes a sacrifice the God of the Bible provides for the beasts of the field, and the fowl of the air. The wild animalistic Islamic barbarians are wiped off the map as humiliating fodder of animals and beasts fitting their own vicious hearts.
God is going to deliver Israel from the Islamic hordes as He did in the days of old. Islam will never be an influence in the Holy Land after Ezekiel 39! Honorable Jews will be free to build the Last Holy Jewish Temple on the Temple Mount. Biblical Judaism will be brought back to the Promised Land. Blood sacrifice will be offered and accepted by a Holy God in remembrance of Calvary. The honorable Jews will build the last Holy Jewish Temple on the Temple Mount (Ezekiel 40 - 48) in preparation for their coming returning Messiah. Ezekiel 38 & 39 then Ezekiel 40 - 48. The chronology is right, and the times sure seem to be right. The Jews will build during times of Great Tribulation. They will be hated by Apostate Christianity. The left be-hinders after the rapture. Apostate Christianity will deny the Jewish Messiah is the Biblical Christ. The phony christ of the liberal denominations, and all the phony Christians who put traditions, misguided emotions, and false doctrines in front of the real Christ will hate the Jews for exposing them to the light of truth. They will oppose the building of a Jewish Temple for a Jewish Christ even more then did Islam. It will take real men of valor to stand in those days.
Friend, where will you stand? Will you be counted among the honorable who humbly came to Christ for forgiveness of sin, or will you stand among the proud who only give Him lip service? The time is short. What would make you think if you do not respond to Christ in theis dispensation that you would respond to Him in the next? Friend, if you refuse Him now you are on the road of refusing Him forever. Come to Christ and live.
The End of Islam

4 Bombings Kill 157 People in Baghdad
10:19 AM US/Eastern
By SINAN SALAHEDDIN
Associated Press Writer
BAGHDAD (AP) - Four large bombs exploded in mostly Shiite areas of Baghdad on Wednesday, killing at least 157 people and wounding scores as violence climbed toward levels seen before the U.S.-Iraqi campaign to pacify the capital began two months ago.
In the deadliest of the attacks, a parked car bomb detonated in a crowd of workers at the Sadriyah market in central Baghdad, killing at least 112 people and wounding 115, said Raad Muhsin, an official at Al-Kindi Hospital where the victims were taken.
A police official confirmed the toll, speaking on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to release the information.
Among the dead were several construction workers who had been rebuilding the mostly Shiite marketplace after a bombing destroyed many shops and killed 137 people there in February, the police official said.
The laborers typically finish work around 4 p.m. each day. One of those wounded, 28-year-old Salih Mustafa, said he was waiting for a minibus to head home when the blast went off at 4:05 p.m.
"I rushed with others to give a hand and help the victims," he said. "I saw three bodies in a wooden cart, and civilian cars were helping to transfer the victims. It was really a horrible scene."
The market is situated on a side street lined with shops and vendors selling produce, meat and other staples. It is also about 500 yards from a Sunni shrine.
About an hour earlier, a suicide car bomber crashed into an Iraqi police checkpoint at an entrance to Sadr City, the capital's biggest Shiite Muslim neighborhood and a stronghold for the militia led by radical anti-U.S. cleric Muqtada al-Sadr.
The explosion killed at least 30 people, including five Iraqi security officers, and wounded 45, police said.
Black smoke billowed from a jumble of at least eight incinerated vehicles that were in a jam of cars stopped at the checkpoint. Bystanders scrambled over twisted metal to drag victims from the smoldering wreckage as Iraqi guards staggered around stunned.
Earlier, a parked car exploded near a private hospital in the central neighborhood of Karradah, killing 11 people and wounding 13, police said. The blast damaged the Abdul-Majid hospital and other nearby buildings.
The fourth explosion was from a bomb left on a minibus in the central Rusafi area, area, killing four people and wounding six others, police said.
Also in Baghdad, four policemen were killed Wednesday afternoon when gunmen ambushed their patrol south of the city center, police said. Six pedestrians were wounded in the gunfire. ...
Today, we face the aftermath of the Virginia Tech killing spree. Media psychoanalysts are fast at work looking for answers to what motivated the deranged student to turn into a wild animal capable of murdering with such ferocity. I remember a ministry I had in the Snowy Mountains of Montana. One of the ranchers was having a problem with coyotes taking his sheep. He put his small herd of 80 into a coral next to the barn each night figuring the coyotes would not be so bold as to approach. He was right, and his losses to coyotes ended, but what he did not expect was a grizzly bear coming down from the mountains. It got into the coral and went on a killing spree. Something about animalistic beastly behavior kicked in, and that grizzly killed ever one of those helpless sheep in a matter of minutes. It was a horrific sight to behold. I'm sure not much different from what was seen in Baghdad, and Virginia this past week.
The Bible tells us that God created man with a conscience. A red flag goes up whenever we begin to step over the bounds of what God intended for Human being behavior. The conscience is a good thing. It can't save a lost sinner, but it can control civilized societies to function in a more equitable way. The problem with the conscience is that it can be over-ridden. It can be seared so it will no longer function. The average human being no matter what religion, or culture he comes from would not kill a helpless person much less a helpless little baby just to kill as that grizzly bear did in Montana. The conscience has to be seared before such beastly behavior can be activated. I'm sure there will be overwhelming evidence of a seared conscience of the Virginia killer should the media do a good job investigating. We already know what Islam has done with this generation of youth. They have taught them to hate the Jews. To sear their conscience so they can murder Jewish woman and children as easily as that Montana grizzly. Once the conscience is seared it makes no difference who's woman and children they murder. Islamic youth are trained from cradle to grave to be the barbarians that we see. The works of the barbarian is encouraged in Islam. They are the heroes. They are the elected leaders wherever Islamic democracy is found. The worst of them rise to power in all the other Islamic countries. The law of the barbarian rules. Woman become chattel both in this life and the next. Islamic paradise is for sexually perverted men only!
Friend, The Holy God of the Bible has a heaven for everyone. He demands dignity for women. He expects men to protect the honor of both woman and children. It is a curse for anyone to dismantle the family unit. Husbands are to love their wives, and die for them if necessary. The LORD Jesus Christ always honored woman. He protected the adulteress from the crowd. He used the conscience of these misguided men, but most importantly He charged the adulteress to sin no more. We can only assume that she never committed adultery again. We can only assume she righted as best she could the wrongs that she had done.
9And they which heard it, being convicted by their own conscience, went out one by one, beginning at the eldest, even unto the last: and Jesus was left alone, and the woman standing in the midst.
10When Jesus had lifted up himself, and saw none but the woman, he said unto her, Woman, where are those thine accusers? hath no man condemned thee?
11She said, No man, Lord. And Jesus said unto her, Neither do I condemn thee: go, and sin no more.
Friend, Jesus wants you to sin no more also. He knows unless your heart is changed your desires will always be to have the freedom to sin. Only when we are born again can we resist the temptations of the world, flesh and devil. There is only one way to be born again, and that is to come to the LORD Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sin. He not only saves you, but He gives you a new nature. The shackles of sin are broken, and for the first time you will be able to serve the Holy God of the Bible. This does not mean perfection! That comes later. What it does mean is that the promise of perfection is fixed. We are sealed unto the day of redemption when perfection is miraculously granted. We are granted something better then a conscience. We are given the Holy Spirit at the moment of salvation to guide and direct our mind onto that which is holy. Sadly, because we retain the old nature the Holy Spirit can be grieved. He can be grieved, but He will never leave unto the day of redemption. Oh, how much better is a Holy God then the Arabic god of Mohamed as he wrote of him in the Koran. The god of the barbarian. Allah the god of Islam. The god of death and destruction. The deceiving god who is leading his followers to hell. Friend, come to Christ, and live. There is victory in Christ!

Iraq war is 'lost': US Democrat leader
Apr 19 02:45 PM US/Eastern
The war in Iraq "is lost" and a US troop surge is failing to bring peace to the country, the leader of the Democratic majority in the US Congress, Harry Reid, said Thursday.
"I believe ... that this war is lost, and this surge is not accomplishing anything, as is shown by the extreme violence in Iraq this week," Reid told journalists.
Reid said he had delivered the same message to US President George W. Bush on Wednesday, when the US president met with senior lawmakers to discuss how to end a standoff over an emergency war funding bill.
"I know I was the odd guy out at the White House, but I told him at least what he needed to hear ... I believe the war at this stage can only be won diplomatically, politically and economically."
Congress is seeking to tie funding for the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan to a timetable to withdraw US troops from Iraq next year, but Bush has vowed to veto any such bill and no breakthrough was reported from the White House talks.
Bush on Thursday was addressing an Ohio town hall meeting and defending the war on terror launched in the wake of the September 11, 2001 attacks.
"It is the most solemn duty of our country, is to protect our country from harm," Bush told the invited audience in Tipp, Ohio.
"A lesson learned was that -- at least in my opinion -- that in order to protect us, we must aggressively pursue the enemy and defeat them elsewhere so that we do not have to face them here."
But Reid drew a parallel with former US president Lyndon Johnson who decided to deploy more troops in Vietnam some 40 years ago when 24,000 US troops had already been killed.
"Johnson did not want a war loss on his watch, so he surged in Vietnam. After the surge was over, we added 34,000 to the 24,000 who died in Vietnam," Reid said.
The comments came a day after bombers killed more than 200 people in a slew of car bombings in Baghdad, dealing a savage blow to the US security plan which aims to deploy an extra 30,000 troops in the country to quell sectarian unrest.
US Defense Secretary Robert Gates fly into Iraq Thursday on an unannounced visit for talks with top US military commanders there.
He met with General David Petraeus, chief of coalition forces in Iraq, his deputy Lieutenant Colonel Ray Odierno and Admiral William Fallon, chief of US forces in the Middle East.
The Democratic Party is clear that as far as they are concerned the war is over. We lost to the Islamic barbarians! All those dead American soldiers who died in Iraq died for nothing. The Democrats want to play liberal politics with our honorable dead. They want to destroy their rival Republican President by rewriting history so great is their hate for him. They want the war in Iraq to be forever known as the Republican Bush war that was lost by the Republicans. The Democratic Congress wants to give the Islamic barbarians a free win only so that the liberal Democrats can say "see I told you so." It is a terrible price we are about to pay so these puffed up liberal politicians can have their day of glory. They will glory in a lie. The war is not lost. We can fight these barbarians, but we must take off the kid gloves of the liberal politicians. The mad dogs Islam has nurtured for this day must be exterminated. I'm talking about the terrorists, and all those Moslems who support them. The Democrats by giving Islam a clear political victory in Iraq will only produce a vicious feeding frenzy of which the news media will be too embarrassed to report. The Democrats are on the road of politically giving Iraq to Iran. Hizbullah and Hamas (the Iranian terrorist organizations) will then be the government of the Arabic Palestinian State once the Road Map is implemented. Personally, I think the Jews (even the secular liberal Jewish politicians) will balk once the Road Map gets that close to reality. It will only cause Islam to invade with the evil thought of exterminating every Jewish man, woman, and child living in the Holy Land. I wonder how many liberal Democrats will glory when that happens?
10Thus saith the Lord God; It shall also come to pass, that at the same time shall things come into thy mind, and thou shalt think an evil thought:
11And thou shalt say, I will go up to the land of unwalled villages; I will go to them that are at rest, that dwell safely, all of them dwelling without walls, and having neither bars nor gates,
12To take a spoil, and to take a prey; to turn thine hand upon the desolate places that are now inhabited, and upon the people that are gathered out of the nations, which have gotten cattle and goods, that dwell in the midst of the land.
It will be the lily livered Democrats who will encourage Islam to invade on that day. Islam will know all the negotiations by the liberal politicians for peace in the Holy Land are nothing more then an invitation to invade. They know these feather bedded politicians will never stand up to fight. Nothing will move them out of their beds of comfort. They intend to talk the gullible into thinking Islam can never be defeated. Talk is all they will ever do, and Islam never felt obligated to abide by any agreements made with the infidels. It has always been the big mouth lying politicians, and religious leaders who have been the greatest enemies of God down through the Ages. The Jewish religious leaders demanded the death of Christ, and the Roman politicians obliged. Not much has changed.
God is too big to be thwarted by the big mouths of any generation. When Christ came the first time the big mouths thought Calvary meant their greatest victory over the Holy God of the Bible. Instead, God turned it into the greatest victory over sin! Today, the big mouths think if they can remove the Jews from the Holy Land it will be the greatest victory for a secular liberal peace. The God of the Bible is clear that He is going to turn the coming Islamic invasion of Israel into the death null for Islam. It will not be the Jews who get exterminated, but the Moslems! The Jews will then be free to build the last Holy Jewish Temple on the Temple Mount. They will build it for their soon returning Messiah. They will build it so the coming King of Glory will have the Biblical place from where He will reign.
Friend, victory is coming over the lying religious leaders and politicians of this generation. That victory will only be in Christ. Have you come to Christ for the forgiveness of your sins, or is Christ just a word used by your big mouth? Friend, the LORD Jesus Christ loves you. He died in your place so that a Holy God would be able to forgive your sin. He is the single blood atonement for sin. He is the only perfect sacrifice without spot or blemish that ever was offered. It is you who must humbly repent, and come to Him. His perfect blood has bought you a perfect salvation. A perfect heaven awaits you if you come. Islam wants a paradise for sexually perverted men. Allah is a lair in the Koran. The only thing the Islamic mad dogs will find is judgment! Friend, in Christ you can find eternal life. You can find the power that can change your heart.

Olmert Promising Leftists Israeli Withdrawal; American Father of IDF Soldier Killed in Lebanon War Speaks Out
Anticipating the release of a damaging report of his handling of last summer's war in Lebanon, Aaron Klein, Jerusalem Bureau Chief for WorldNetDaily.com, reports that Olmert pledged to leading leftist figures to carry out Israeli withdrawals in exchange for their continued support. Also, father of Michael Levin (z”l) killed in Lebanon on August 1, 2006 speaks of a new documentary on his heroic life.
Barak, Peretz Trade Punches as Labor Campaign Heats Up
by Tzvi Ben Gedalyahu
(IsraelNN.com) Labor party contestants Amir Peretz and Ehud Barak traded jabs with each other over the two wars in Lebanon, each accusing the other of disaster.
Former IDF Chief of Staff and Prime Minister Ehud Barak gave Defense Minister Amir Peretz damning praise Thursday night for being "talented" but inexperienced. The Defense Minister shot back, stating Barak has "no shame."
"Amir Peretz is a talented person and so is [Prime Minister Ehud] Olmert," said Barak, who is trying to unseat Peretz in next month's Labor party primary ballot. "They had good intentions, and what happened to them proves that even among the highest ranks more experience is required."
Barak, who is almost tied with Ami Ayalon in pre-primary polls, kept up a polite stance by complimenting government leaders personally but using his former military background to cast a shadow on the lack of military experience of Defense Minister Peretz and Prime Minister Olmert.
"In the Middle East, the weak get no favors, and those who don't know how to defend themselves will not get a second chance," he said an annual commemoration ceremony in honor of fallen graduates of military boarding schools.
Peretz, who is a distant third in polls and who has suffered severe criticism for his part in the Second Lebanon War, quickly recalled Barak's hasty and unilateral withdrawal from Lebanon in 2000.
The Defense Minister ridiculed the former IDF Chief of Staff's own experience, blaming him for the re-arming of Hizbullah that resulted in the deaths of more than 150 soldiers and civilians in last summer's war and devastated Israel's reputation as a military power against Arab enemies.
"The man [Barak] took the IDF out of Lebanon in a unilateral action and without any agreement or international force and left Hizbullah free to gain strength at the border--he is responsible for closing his eyes," Peretz charged. "Barak is the father of Hizbullah's re-arming."
"Barak, with all the experience he has, has experience in fleeing, too, like his escape from Lebanon," Peretz charged. "[This] is what led to us wake up one day to the reality of an armed Hizbullah sitting on Israel's doorstep in tunnels they had been digging for years."
While Barak and Peretz raise the volume, with the current party chairman chiding Barak for making trips abroad instead of working at home with the party, MK Ayalon took the opportunity to boast party loyalty.
Ayalon reminded supporters in Ashkelon Thursday night that his backing of Peretz after he won the party leadership vote last year showed his desire to "keep the party united."
The former head of intelligence chided the two other contenders, saying that "in the years since Barak lost to Ariel Sharon, Sharon filled the political vacuum and there is a leadership vacuum after Sharon."
The former head of intelligence also charged Barak with not presenting his policy on key matters. "Whoever remains silent endangers the security of the State of Israel because he is liable to be elected and only then he will tell us what he wants."
A leadership vacuum is certainly the case. Sharon was head of the conservative party who jumped ship over the Road Map, and gave Gaza and Jericho to the Islamic barbarians. There is no political conservative party in Israel anymore. Not even Netanyahu the poster boy for conservative Americans leans more toward liberalism then conservatism. The political debates in Israel are really debates between secular liberal Jewish politicians each interested in their own personal glory. The give away of Judah and Samaria is the central pillar of the liberal political platform. With Judah goes almost all of Jerusalem, and sovereignty over the Temple Mount. The liberal politicians represent the city dwellers who love their feather bed existence. They would rather give the barbarians tribute then get out of their feather beds to fight. The problem is the barbarians have made it abundantly clear they are not focused on tribute, but on blood. The Islamic Arab Palestinians have raised a generation on hate. They nurtured them from cradle to grave for only one purpose, and that is to kill the Jews of the Holy Land. They are never going to be appeased. They will forever torture the Jews through terrorism until the final victory is theirs. The torture can go on for generation after generation. The barbarian sons of Ishmael and Esau are committed unto eternity. We here in America have quit after only a few short years. The liberal Democrats are entrenched in the Congress, and salivating at the likelihood of taking the presidency at the next election. The barbarians are overjoyed. They praise Allah daily for having intimidated the liberals so that they will never stand up and fight. The barbarians don't even have to make empty promises to the infidels anymore. They can be wide open bragging of wiping Israel off the map, and frustrating the Americans who support the Jews. The political future for the Holy Land looks very bleak.
God has His own plan for the future of the Holy Land that will never be thwarted. So sure is that plan that God openly revealed it in the Bible. God put all of His reputation on the future of the Holy Land. The entire reputation of the God of the Bible rests on the return of the LORD Jesus Christ as the Jewish King of Glory coming to the Holy Land, Jerusalem, and the Temple Mount. Islam is openly challenging God for the Holy Land. The liberal politicians cowering in their feather beds are convinced Islam can't be stopped. They tell us we already lost the war in Iraq, and we should sit back leaving Islam determine the future for the Holy Land. We should abandon the Bible, and let the Koran make Islamic law the rule where the Bible says righteousness must prevail.
52Awake, awake; put on thy strength, O Zion; put on thy beautiful garments, O Jerusalem, the holy city: for henceforth there shall no more come into thee the uncircumcised and the unclean.
2Shake thyself from the dust; arise, and sit down, O Jerusalem: loose thyself from the bands of thy neck, O captive daughter of Zion.
3For thus saith the Lord, Ye have sold yourselves for nought; and ye shall be redeemed without money.
It will not be the politicians who awake the Jews, but the Lord. Right now the majority of Jews are captive to the secular liberal politicians. God tells us in the Bible that this is about to change. I do not know how far God is going to let the Olmert government go with their present give away plans, but I do know God will reel them in at the proper time. The inheritance of Christ won at Calvary is not going to be given to the barbarians for a perpetual terrorist State within the Holy Land. The politicians of this generation are doomed because of their disregard for the God of the Bible. Friend, what about you? Are you also doomed because of your disregard for what Christ did for you at Calvary? Will God reject you as you have rejected His Son? Come to Christ, and live! Wake up dear friend, and come to Christ for forgiveness of your sin. Come to Him for your salvation.

Pulitzer Prize Photo Star Beaten Seconds Afterwards
by Hillel Fendel
(IsraelNN.com) The latest breaking news photograph to win the prestigious Pulitzer Prize shows Nili, a 17-year-old girl from Jerusalem, facing off against dozens of policemen as she attempts to defend the Jewish homes in Amona.
Photos taken seconds later, which were not widely shown around the world, show how the story really ended, however: Nili is seen lying on the ground, with policemen beating her in the head with a club.
The prize-winning photo shows a long line of helmet-clad, black-uniformed, club-wielding policemen facing off against a young woman protestor; she is leaning heavily upon the large thick-plastic shield held by one of the policemen, as if to try and stop the entire line of policemen from advancing.
Nili, who did not divulge her family name, says the picture is a "desecration of G-d's name, as it shows Jews fighting Jews."
The Knesset, Israel's parliament, conducted an inquiry into the police violence at Amona. An English video documents the excessive use of police force which triggered the probe.
The police were engaged in forcibly removing many hundreds of protestors from the hilltop community of Amona, overlooking Ofrah in the Binyamin region of Judea and Samaria, in preparation for the destruction of nine Jewish concrete-and-stone homes. The Supreme Court had ruled that the homes were built on Arab-owned land - though no one had ever claimed ownership and the land had never been lived on or worked by Arabs.
The Associated Press prize-winning photographer is Oded Balilty of Israel. The picture in question had already won other international awards, including World Press Photo, Pictures of the Year International, and more.
Nili returned with her parents to Amona on Thursday, and showed an AP press team and Israeli journalists the exact site of the photo. Sometimes choking back tears as she read aloud a prepared statement, Nili said the following: "When the State of Israel acts against the Land of Israel, and its soldiers and policemen are sent on missions of violence and destruction and expulsion of Jewish life from Gush Katif and northern Shomron and Amona - this is not a badge of honor, but rather a badge of shame.
"When I look at those policemen, I am unable to understand: Why did not even one of them stop in the name of ethics and ask himself if the order he received was moral or just? They simply acted as robots, at best, but in many cases as genuine sadists.
"People who look at the picture ask me: 'What did you think you were doing, one girl against a wave of black-uniformed policemen? Why didn't you run away?' The answer is that we came to struggle [against the injustice]. We didn't come to surrender or to run away. We felt and thought that all of this evil and injustice must come up against a strong wall of determination.
"I saw this long line of policemen and I thought to myself, 'Behind them is one man - Olmert, but behind me is G-d... Whoever looks around at the ruins of these homes in Amona [which remain un-rebuilt - ed.] understands that there was no purpose to this operation other than the desire for destruction and self-hate.
"It must be understood that there is a complete generation here of youth who grew up in Eretz [Land of] Yisrael, who believe in the Torah and Eretz Yisrael, who insists on leading the Nation of Israel in a different direction, and who is willing to fight for it.
"The violence and cruelty in Amona did not break us - but rather strengthened us. They can break our heads and bones, but they cannot break our spirit."
Asked if she sees herself as a heroine, Nili said, "I try to do whatever I can for Eretz Yisrael and the Nation of Israel, to do what is necessary according to the Torah... I don't want to talk about myself."
Nili made reference to the pictures taken immediately after the Pulitzer-winner, "in which the policemen are 'punishing' me for daring to stand against them. But I have news for them: They did not succeed. What I did in Amona, I am willing, if necessary, to do again."
A more cynical view of the photo and what it represents was taken by commentator Haggai Segal writing for the weekly Makor Rishon: "This was all the police needed now: A prestigious Pulitzer Prize for a photo eternalizing dozens of Israeli policemen storming a defenseless female protestor with their clubs. Even blatant police regimes such as North Korea and Iran have not produced of late such a dramatic and provocative picture like this one. It is even more shivering than the famous shot of the Chinese student standing against a tank in Tiananmen Square. On Chanukah, we'll be able to use it as a great illustration of the idea of the 'few against the many.' ..."
Segal said that left-wing copywriters could probably think of captions that would give the photo a pro-police tilt. He suggested the following:
* "Rule of Law in Action: Police Enforcing Order in Amona"
* "Extremist Settler Attacking Policemen"
* "A Solution for Every Settler: Police Solving Problems in Amona"
God is bringing judgment to this generation! The reason why is obvious. The children of God are being persecuted by the liberal politicians. The Bible is being attacked as not being practical for answers to the present conflict. The majority of Jews living in Israel are liberal, and are convinced the Bible is irrelevant as a guide for the future of the Holy Land. However, one 17 year old girl is pictured standing for God who told the Jews in the Bible to occupy the Promised Land. One 17 year old girl is pictured standing against the Olmert government bent on giving most of the Holy Land, all of Judah and Samaria, most of the city of Jerusalem, and eventually Jewish sovereignty over the Temple Mount to the Islamic Arab barbarians. One 17 year old girl is pictured standing up against the gentile nations fixed on making the Road Map operational in the Holy Land. One 17 year old girl is pictured standing against the Koran, and for the Bible as the book that will rule over the Holy Land. One 17 year old girl is pictured as representing the Independent Fundamental Jewish Settlers in their battle to keep their inheritance God has already given them in the Holy Land. One 17 year old girl is not pictured as the victor, but according to the Bible Jews motivated like her will be those who enter into the coming Jewish Kingdom.
This Pulitzer prize photo represents the coming Great Tribulation revealed in the book of Revelation. I see the tiny remnant for God standing against the world led by the antichrist. I see Armageddon! I see the LORD Jesus Christ putting His arms on either side of a 17 year old girl like the one pictured here, and then see all this apparent overpowering rush collapse by just His word.
Friend, the crowds may have the upper hand as we move into these last days. The power they wield may seem unstoppable. It is easy to jump on the bandwagon, and push God out of your life. You must look to the Bible to see where the crowd is headed. It is death and destruction. It is the road to hell. Friend, you must leave the crowd. You must get on the other side of the barrier. You must stand with the small remnant that are standing for God in this present generation. You must get to the right side that is standing for the righteousness of God. In the Pulitzer prize picture I see only one Jew standing for righteousness. God tells us in the Bible it is right for the Jews to occupy the Promised Land. There is no other way for the Bible to be fulfilled. Christ is coming again as the Jewish King of Glory. He is coming to the Holy Land, Jerusalem, and the Temple Mount. He is coming to redeem the Jews first. He is coming to establish the Kingdom of heaven. Friend it is right for you in this dispensation to come to Christ for your salvation. Those who do not prove they reject Him. They are part of the great crowd on their way to Armageddon, and eternal condemnation. Salvation is offered freely to you this very day, but you must leave the crowd and come to Christ. There is no other way. Won't you come?
6Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.

(IsraelNN.com) Commemoration of Yom HaZikaron, Israel's Memorial Day for its fallen soldiers and terrorism victims, will begin at 8:00 this evening (Sunday) with a country-wide siren and minute of silence.
The opening ceremony will take place at the Western Wall, with the participation of Chief Rabbis Amar and Metzger.
A second siren will be sounded tomorrow morning, at 11 AM, once again bringing all activity to a standstill and marking the beginning of memorial ceremonies at the 43 military cemeteries around the country. A Knesset Member or government official will speak at each ceremony.
A special ceremony will also be held in memory of Jews murdered by terrorists and anti-Semites around the world. Some 200 such Jews will be remembered at tomorrow's ceremony at Mt. Herzl in Jerusalem. The event is being organized by the Jewish Agency, the World Zionist Organization, the Jewish National Fund, and the UJC of North America. A monument with the names of the victims will be unveiled.
The names of all Israel's fallen soldiers and terrorist victims will be broadcast on Israel's public television channel this evening and tomorrow, one after the other, for 4-5 seconds each.
The somber day comes to an end tomorrow evening (Monday) with the onset of Israel's 59th Independence Day.
Both Remembrance Day and Independence Day are commemorated one day later this year than usual, by order of the Chief Rabbinate, in order to prevent the Sabbath desecration that would have resulted from having Remembrance Day begin on Saturday night.
18,784 soldiers and security personnel have fallen since the U.N. decision to establish a Jewish State on Nov. 29, 1947. In recent years, Yom HaZikaron has been expanded to include civilians killed by terror attacks as well.
The number of soldiers and security personnel who have fallen since Nov. 29, 1947, when the UN accepted the partition, thus mandating the creation of a Jewish State, is 20,526. The struggle to re-create a Jewish homeland beginning in the year 1860, when Jews began to move outside Jerusalem's Old City walls, claimed an additional close to 1,500 victims.
The War of Independence was Israel's costliest war, with more than 6,000 dead and 15,000 wounded. The war consisted of 39 separate operations, fought from the borders of Lebanon to the Sinai Peninsula and Eilat, and was fought for about a year, until 1949.
Then followed seven years of relative quiet - during which there were "1,339 cases of armed clashes with Egyptian armed forces, 435 cases of incursion from Egyptian-controlled territory, and 172 cases of sabotage perpetrated by Egyptian military units and fedayeen in Israel," in which 101 Israelis were killed, as Israeli Ambassador to the UN Abba Eban explained to the Security Council on October 30, 1956. Eban gave these statistics the day after Israel began the Sinai Campaign - its military response to Egypt's violation of international agreements by sealing off the Israeli port of Eilat, effectively stopping Israel's sea trade with much of Africa and the Far East. A total of 231 Israeli soldiers died in the fighting. In March 1957, after receiving international guarantees that Israel's vital waterways would remain open, Israel withdrew from the Sinai and Gaza - yet the Egyptians still refused to open the Suez Canal to Israeli shipping.
The Six-Day War broke out on June 5, 1967. Despite the stunning victories, over 770 Israelis were killed.
Then began the period of the War of Attrition, which claimed ,424 soldiers and more than 100 civilians. A ceasefire was declared on August 8, 1970.
Egypt and Syria attacked Israel on Yom Kippur, 1973. The IDF ultimately emerged victorious, but a total of 2,688 soldiers were killed.
In June 1982, in response to continued terrorist attacks from across the Lebanese border, as well as an assassination attempt upon Israel's Ambassador to Great Britain Shlomo Argov, Israel attacked the terrorists in Lebanon in what was known as Operation Peace for Galilee. Close to 460 soldiers were killed between June and December 1982, and another 760 in daily ambushes against Israeli forces over the next two and a half years.
Between December 1987, when the first Arab "intifada" broke out, and the signing of the Oslo Accords in late 1993, 90 Israelis were killed.
Between the Oslo signing and the beginning of what became known as the Oslo War (seven years), 251 Israelis were killed.
Another 1,287 have been felled by PA terrorists and gunmen since September 2000.
In the year 2000, then-Prime Minister Barak wrote to the bereaved families,
"We visit today the rows of graves that extend to infinity... we still refuse to believe and we refuse to be consoled. Because there is no consolation. Heavy, maybe too heavy, is the price we bear for our independence and building the 52 years of the State of Israel."
In contrast, the late Rabbi Shlomo Goren, the first Chief Rabbi of the Israel Defense Forces and the man who was responsible for setting the date of Remembrance Day, explained the day's significance differently: "We view the warriors who fall in battle as those who sprout forth life. The life of a nation grew out of this blood... This day must be more than mourning: We must remember, we must grieve, but it must be a day of mourning, majesty, and vision."
Interestingly, Barak himself took a similar tone when he spoke at the Mt. Herzl ceremony in 2000, saying, "...their deaths are the precious price of freedom and our re-establishment. It is my hope that a strong and secure State of Israel will be, with the help of G-d, the consolation of the bereaved families."
Rabbi Goren explained, in a 1974 speech, how he came to set Remembrance Day just before Independence Day: "The merit of doing this fell in my lot.. We first thought of setting Remembrance Day on Lag BaOmer, the day that historically symbolizes the Bar Kokhba war, and that which is still celebrated by Jewish children as the day of Jewish strength. In this way, we thought that we could combine the heroism of our early ancestors with that of our own children in this generation. But doubts crept in. Would we not cause harm to the general significance, shrouded in mystery as it is, of that historic day?
"One of the Fast Days, or during the Three Weeks in which we remember the destruction of Jerusalem and the Holy Temples, was then proposed. But we could not accept the fact that the Day of Remembrance would be solely a day of mourning. It was felt that this day must be more than that. We must remember, we must grieve, but not only that - it must [also] be a day of... majesty and vision.
"We realized, therefore, that we could not assign this day to any existing holiday. But the first Independence Day was rapidly approaching, and so we did what we did - without announcing it formally and without setting any specific format for the day. I went to Voice of Israel studios on the day before Independence Day and read aloud the Chief of Staff’s Daily Military Order, which he wrote according to my request. And so I became the narrator and the one who set Remembrance Day on what became its date."
The God of the Bible well knew the price for this miraculous Third Exodus. He already knows the price yet to be paid before the Jews build the next Holy Jewish Temple on the Temple Mount which is the purpose of His bringing the Jews back to the Promised Land in this our generation. We count the cost in human lives and suffering. God counts the cost in a totally different dimension. The cost to God is the blood shed by His only begotten Son on Calvary. One drop has more value then this entire creation. No price can be placed on just one single drop of Christ's blood much less all that was spilt leading up to, and on the cross in that one single day. His body was ripped to ribbons by the Roman lash even before the nails were driven through His flesh. No slaughter house could compare with what the sinful barbarians did to the meek and lowly LORD Jesus Christ. The Jews are counting the cost this week in their heroic dead, and a terrible price they are paying. God is counting the value of the blood of Christ, and is telling us today the cost must be recompensed even though it is valued beyond measure. Sin is what drove the barbarians to crucify Christ, and sin must be judged! The Bible is clear it is Christ who will judge this world. It is Christ who will end sin forever! The Bible tells us Christ is coming again to establish His Kingdom. It will be a perfect Kingdom ruled over by a perfect King. It is the perfect inheritance that He purchased with His perfect blood. Satan will be bound for His thousand year reign, and sin will be outlawed! Perfect righteousness will rule with a rod of iron! Woe to any who would rebel against His purity and holiness.
Today, we live in a generation ripe for judgment. God well knows the heart of both Jew and gentile. He has made an evaluation of our age, and it is not good.
7Their feet run to evil, and they make haste to shed innocent blood: their thoughts are thoughts of iniquity; wasting and destruction are in their paths.
8The way of peace they know not; and there is no judgment in their goings: they have made them crooked paths: whosoever goeth therein shall not know peace.
9Therefore is judgment far from us, neither doth justice overtake us: we wait for light, but behold obscurity; for brightness, but we walk in darkness.
10We grope for the wall like the blind, and we grope as if we had no eyes: we stumble at noonday as in the night; we are in desolate places as dead men.
11We roar all like bears, and mourn sore like doves: we look for judgment, but there is none; for salvation, but it is far off from us.
God is not going to leave this generation in the darkness for long. This is why He brought the Jews back. This is why the miraculous Third Exodus is taking place right now! The LORD Jesus Christ is coming again to the Holy Land, Jerusalem, and the Temple Mount. It is to bring nigh the salvation which is now far off from us. The blood of Christ is not going to be ground into the mud by this evil generation. God is determined that Christ be given honor and glory. His salvation bought with His own blood will be the most important part of all things taking place during the Kingdom Age. Worship will be the highest exercise any one could strive.
Friend, are you among the blind of this generation? Is salvation far off? Is judgment the only thing you are sure is coming? Then you are in need of coming to Christ. His salvation is free. There is no price. The greatest gift ever offered is given freely to any who will come. Friend, come to Christ!
55Ho, every one that thirsteth, come ye to the waters, and he that hath no money; come ye, buy, and eat; yea, come, buy wine and milk without money and without price.
6And hath raised us up together, and made us sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus:
7That in the ages to come he might shew the exceeding riches of his grace in his kindness toward us through Christ Jesus.
8For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God:
9Not of works, lest any man should boast.

Israel: 3,500 Years Old, 59 Years Young
by Tzvi Ben Gedalyahu
(IsraelNN.com) Jews and others around the world are celebrating the 59th birthday of the re-birth of the Jewish State. The faith and fears that faced the Jews in their 3,500-year history remain today.
Since the birth of the Jews as a nation in ancient Egypt, enemies of the Jewish people have waged wars against them until today, 59 years after the reborn State of Israel survived the War of Independence. The Jews in Israel survived an onslaught from seven better-armed neighboring Arab armies who marched into the nascent state to annihilate any Jewish sovereign presence. The Arab states rejected a United Nations mandate to split Israel between a smaller Jewish state and a larger Trans-Jordan country.
'We have won before and we will win again'
"We have won before and we will win again, for we have no other choice," Knesset Speaker Dalia Itzik said at the opening Independence Day celebrations Monday night in Jerusalem. We have been living for 59 years in a war, the end of which is not yet in sight.
"Residents of Iran, Syria and the Palestinian Authority: has there not been enough blood spilled, yours and ours? Replace your Katyushas and Kassams with computers and education, and finally, be rewarded with peace and quiet," she said. "Israel lives and lets live."
At the same hour she spoke, Arab terrorists attempted to fire another Kassam rocket on Israel. It backfired and exploded at the launching site. No one was injured.
The festivities began immediately after the torch-lighting ceremony at the conclusion of Remembrance Day for Fallen Soldiers
Former President Yitzhak Navon led the torch-bearers, who included Eliyahu Sakharov, an aide to the Haganah chief in the 1930s and Shulamit Cohen-Kishik, a Mossad agent from the late 1940s who helped bring persecuted Jews from Arab nations to Israel and escaped a death sentence in Beirut.
Other torch-bearers were world obstetrician/gynecologist Professor Joseph Shenkar of Hebrew University; actor Avinoam Mor-Haim, whose son Dvir was killed in Lebanon; former Lechi underground fighter Rachel Saad-Nakar; Holocaust survivor Mordechai Eliav, founder of the Western Wall Heritage Foundation; Uri Amadi, who works with eastern Jerusalem youth; Prof. Nava Ben Tzvi, founder of the Open university and president of Hadassah College; Jerusalem Foundation president Ruth Heshin; police sapper Yehuda Shriki; Kiryat Shmona police commander Faras Faraj; Yosef Lieberman, who served in almost every war; and orthopedic surgeon Dr. Dor Yehuda, who volunteered in the Second Lebanon War last summer.
The view on Israel from Jews around the world
An Australian Jewish News column noted, "As Israel marks its 59th birthday, the Jewish State is caught between the celebration of its incredible achievements and the specter of a nuclear Iran vowing to “wipe it off the map”--not to mention a scandal-ridden public service, from the president and prime minister down.
"What Israel desperately needs--and doesn’t seem to have right now--is a leader who can resuscitate a belief in the true essence of Zionism, who can convince people that things can still change for the better and who, yes, can import some Diaspora optimism--especially the Australian brand--to offset the perpetually prevailing Israeli doom and gloom."
The Los Angeles Jewish Journal described the situation in Israel today with two caricatures--one of a birthday cake with the words "Peace Hopes" under the banner of Israel Independence Day, 2005, when the Sharon government expelled 10,000 Jews, destroyed their homes and communities and turned over the areas to the Palestinian Authority promising improved security for the Israeli citizens. The second picture shows a cake with a rocket stuck inside it and labeled "The next Hizbullah attack" under the banner Israel Independence Day, 2007.
An editorial in The New York Jewish Week stated, "Israelis are resilient, and whether one sees their modern history as miraculous or merely remarkable, the fact is that they have overcome horrific efforts to destroy them and have not only survived but thrived.... For its citizens and for so many Jews around the world, Israel remains “Hatikva,” the hope--of a brighter future and, in the words of the state’s national anthem, “to be a free people in our land, the land of Zion and Jerusalem.”
The problem I see at 59 years is that it is not the Jew's land of Zion and Jerusalem. It belongs to the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. His purpose is not to give the Jews a land where they are free to sin whenever they so feel. A land where it is optional for the Jews to practice Biblical Judaism. A land where 80% of the Jews can say they do not believe in God. No, it is a land intended for righteousness and holiness. The Jewish claim is only valid as they obey God! Today, we have the Exodus in reverse. The Sharon government turned Jericho over to the barbarians with the withdrawal from the Gaza. The same Jericho which symbolized the victory Joshua attributed to the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. Now, the Olmert government is intent on turning over all of Judah and Samaria to the barbarians. Oh what a contrast in the attitude of the Jews of the First Exodus when compared to the Jews of this present Third Exodus. Olmert has sworn by his name that he will give most of Jerusalem to the barbarians before his 4 year term ends. Watch the sovereignty over the Temple Mount go with Jerusalem when the day comes to give it to the Islamic Arab barbarians. 60 years of this kind of Judaism going on in the Holy Land is just too much. The last great victory God gave the Jews in spite of themselves was in 1967 when God gave them all of Judah and Samaria. The entire city of Jerusalem became Jewish. The Gaza and Jericho surrendered to the overwhelming force of the Jewish army. Most important of all was the Temple Mount. For the first time in almost 2000 years the holy Temple Mount was Jewish once again. The Jews should have flooded to the Mount, and bulldozed away those shrines to the barbarians that now stand on this most holy site. Construction should have started on the next Jewish Temple. It did not happen. The blessings ended, and the curses began. It must be abundantly clear that all the blessings of the 1967 victory are being treated by the liberal secular political majority in Israel as a great curse. Like a hot potato the politicians can't work fast enough to pass those land gains on to the barbarians. They don't even want an agreement of restraint from the barbarians. They just want to dump that land as quickly as possible. All they do is compound their sin. It is God's land, and He chose to give it to the Jews in 1967. It can't be given away. The pressure is for the Jews to submit to the holiness God demands of them! All attempts to turn intended blessings into Islamic Arab occupied land will fail as is already the case in the Gaza where wave after wave of Kassam rockets rain down on the Jews.
Great Tribulation is coming to these Jews who are so stiff-necked. The 40th anniversary of the 1967 War will be remembered this coming June. An entire generation must now face the fact that God holds them responsible. They are without excuse for not building the next Jewish Temple on the Temple Mount. The consequences are grave! The Jews must submit to the demands of God. It was true at the First Exodus, and remains true for this Third Exodus.
45For I am the Lord that bringeth you up out of the land of Egypt, to be your God: ye shall therefore be holy, for I am holy.
Holiness is not an option for the Jews who live in the Holy Land. God reveals He is the source that brought each individual Jew to this land at this moment in history. His purpose is clear. They are to represent His holiness. Not trumped up religious holiness, but perfect holiness that comes through perfect righteousness. There is no effort more right for the Jews of Israel then to build the next Temple! God is prepared to do what ever it is going to take to bend, and mold the Jewish heart. The stiffnecked people will be the doers of all that the holiness of the God of the Bible represents.
22Ye shall therefore keep all my statutes, and all my judgments, and do them: that the land, whither I bring you to dwell therein, spue you not out.
23And ye shall not walk in the manners of the nation, which I cast out before you: for they committed all these things, and therefore I abhorred them.
24But I have said unto you, Ye shall inherit their land, and I will give it unto you to possess it, a land that floweth with milk and honey: I am the Lord your God, which have separated you from other people.
Friend, are you separated from this world? Are you living only for the LORD Jesus Christ? The demands that the Holy God of the Bible puts on His children are weighty. Friend, has Christ changed your stiffnecked heart? Has He broken your ability to resist His holiness? There is a wonderful land that floweth with milk and honey for you, but it is only available to those who submit. Come to the miracle working Christ of the Bible not the phony christ of the religionists. Only the Biblical Christ has the power to perform such a miracle to the immovable heart of sin filled men. Only Christ can separate you from this world of sin. Only Christ can make you holy!
11Come, ye children, hearken unto me: I will teach you the fear of the Lord.

Hamas Launches Independence Day Rocket Attack on Israel
by Hana Levi Julian
(IsraelNN.com) Kassam rockets fired by Hamas terrorists slammed into the western Negev in the early morning light of Israel's Independence Day, in a faint echo of the Arab attacks on the nascent state in 1948.
In a statement issued from Gaza City, the Izz a-Din al-Kassam Brigades, said it had fired up to 30 rockets and 50 mortar shells at Israel. The terror group said the attack was a “reaction to the continued Zionist crimes against our people in the West Bank and Gaza Strip.”
Izz a-Din al-Kassam is a military unit in the Palestinian Authority’s ruling Hamas faction.
An IDF spokesman dismissed the claim, and told Arutz-7 that only two rockets actually reached Israeli territory “north of Gaza” out of a total of six rockets that were launched.
Eight mortar shells also reached the western Negev, according to the army spokesman, although “more were launched.” The specific number of mortar shells fired at Israel was unavailable.
No injuries or damage were reported in the attacks, said the spokesman. Residents in an unidentified community in southern Israel reported some damage, according to Ynet.
IDF helicopters returned fire, shooting at the open areas in which the launch sites were identified, but hit no one. “That was not the intent,” said the army spokesman, who added the primary goal of the IDF response was deterrence. He declined further comment.
Tuesday morning’s attack was the first by a Hamas terrorist group in five months and could signal the end of the limited ceasefire with the Palestinian Authority that began last year.
The November 26th agreement called for Israel to withdraw its forces and PA terrorist groups to halt the rocket attacks on western Negev communities. Israel stuck to its promise, but more than 200 missiles have been fired at Israel from Gaza since the supposed ceasefire went into effect.
Kassam Attack Near Ashkelon
(IsraelNN.com) Terrorists in Palestinian Authority-controlled Gaza launched a Kassam rocket at Ashkelon on Thursday afternoon. The rocket landed in an open area near the city. No injuries or damage have been reported in the attack.
Well over 200 rockets have been launched from Gaza since a ceasefire was declared in late 2006. A coalition of terrorist groups announced Thursday that they would consider keeping the ceasefire if Israel agrees to halt all counter-terrorist activities.
Israel! Do not put up your guard when we attack or we will never agree to stop attacking! These are the barbarian terms for peace. Put down your arms, and put your head on the chopping block if you want peace with us! How ridiculous are the Jews of this generation that they actually try to negotiate with these barbarians. The puffed up liberal politicians are so filled with their own pride that they think they can out negotiate the barbarians through their own wit. How foolish it is to negotiate with liars! How bold are the barbarians that they don't even see a need to lie either to the Jews, or to the international community any longer. They have raised a generation of cold blooded killers who hate the Jew above all other things. How can the seed of Ishmael and Esau ever be expected to live peaceably side by side with the Jews? Each coming generation of Islam is worse then the one that went before. Depravity has no bounds once the Islamic barbarians put it into practice. A people even worse in depravity then the Tojo Japs, and Hitler Nazis who went before them. The blasphemous effort to give forever these openly barbaric people most of the Holy Land, most of Jerusalem, and eventually full sovereignty over the Temple Mount as described in the road Map should be opposed just as openly by every Bible believing Christian. The recently elected Democratic Congress which hate the Bush White House to the point of calling for impeachment have one White House action for which they rejoice. That was when Bush adopted their much beloved Road Map plan for peace in the Holy Land from the atheistic Russians and Europeans. The Decorates were beside themselves that such a liberal plan would become the Evangelical White House plan also. Ariel Sharon did his infamous flip flop right after the adoption. The Gaza and Jericho were given to the barbarians as the very first step to draw the Jewish Nation into full compliance with the intensions of the Road Map. There is no conservative voice in Israel any longer since the flip flop, and with this last congressional election it looks like the United States is following the same path. Liberals like Olmert and Pelocy are now dictating the future of the Holy Land. They want a negotiated peace with the Islamic barbarians! They are so puffed up in their own pride that they have convinced themselves by their own wit without any need of God they will get their way even when the barbarians openly tell them to drop dead.
The only god who wins with the Road Map is Allah of the Koran. The Islamic Palestinians want an international safe haven from which to launch attacks forever on the Jewish population as is being done this very moment in the Gaza. Israel is afraid to retaliate into the Gaza because of the international outcry. The Road Map would give Islam all of Judah and Samaria as a forever internationally protected Islamic barbarian State where Islamic law must be eternally honored. The rockets will not just rain down from Gaza, but from all over. The Liberal politicians will say such is their witty price for peace in the Holy Land.
Friend, there is an assault from this generation on your eternal soul. The witty people of this generation overwhelmingly agree you have no need for God in your life. They will tell you to listen to them. They are the shakers and movers in this generation. It is in their wit that you can put your trust. Friend, the greatest liar of all time has put his hook in their nose. He is leading them to death and destruction. He wants you to compliantly follow the crowd. Stand up dear friend! Step out from the masses on their way to hell. Your redeemer has come! He paid the price of your sin on Calvary. The only thing that separates you from the Holy God of the Bible is your unwillingness to come to Christ! This generation of leaders are telling you there is no need for Christ. They have everything under their control. Do not let such foolishness dictate the direction of your life. The future of Islam, and their Arabic god Allah is revealed in Ezekiel 39. It is only a foretaste of where the entire gentile world is headed. Friend, your only hope is to step out from the crowd, and come to Christ for eternal salvation.
Hear the prayer of King David. Oh that we may find it's fulfilling through the son of David.
A Psalm of David.

IDF trains for Syrian attack on the Golan
Analysts: Damascus likely to use heavy missile attack on homefront
The IDF conducted large intensive training operations yesterday to prepare for the possibility of a Syrian attack on the Golan Heights. According to reports, hundreds of tanks and thousands of soldiers backed by aircraft gathered in the Judean Desert for wartime simulations.
Since the end of the Second Lebanon War with Hizb'Allah, Israeli intelligence has warned that war with Syria is closer than ever, and the IDF has been on heightened alert in the North in preparation for the possibility of a surprise attack.
Syrian President Bashar Assad seems to have been encouraged by Hizb'Allah's surprise success in fighting the IDF last year, and may now be motivated to launch hostilities in an effort to retrieve the Golan Heights. Analysts believe that Assad will either initiate a surprise attack to capture one or two Israeli communities or begin by firing long-range ballistic missiles at the Israeli homefront.
According to The Jerusalem Post, the assumption within the defense establishment is that while war with Syria would definitely be of a conventional nature, Damascus would most likely utilize its large ballistic missile arsenal and its division of several thousand elite commandos.
Additionally, Thursday's drill indicated that the IDF has not ruled out the possibility that a war would also entail tank battles, once believed to have been a relic of historic wars like the Six Day War in 1967 and the Yom Kippur War in 1973.
Israel seems on the road of underestimating their Islamic foes once again. I would think if Syria learned anything from Hizbullah it is not to fight a conventional war with the Jews. Long term ambush type hit and run tactics are what work for Islam both during the Lebanon War and in Iraq. The idea is to draw Israeli forces into traps. Head on frontal attacks are suicide. The idea is to keep the advanced multi-billion dollar Israeli Air Force on the ground by not giving them massive targets. A war of attrition is a war that is winnable from people ruled by liberal politicians who have grown fat and lazy. All the while the Israeli Air Force sits the Syrians are prepared to fire an endless barrage of ballistic rockets from a multitude of hidden underground bunkers. Accuracy is only important in that they hit population centers. They know the international community will never stand for the Jews striking back with the same blood thirsty targeting as the barbarians are capable of conducting. The Syrians can claim dumb bombs that hit schools and hospitals are proper while the Jewish smart bombs are restricted to having absolutely no collateral damage. The Jews will be restricted to only military property as they attempt to fight the barbarians who have no rules whatsoever. It will be a perpetual Jewish blood bath that will gain the tribute of the Golan Heights for the Syrians, not a conventional victory in war.
The blessings changed to curses for the Jews in 1967. The Jordanian Army retreated across the Jordan River leaving behind a small group of Islamic clergy on the Temple Mount. They gave the keys to the one-eyed Israeli commander Moshe Dayan. It was then that the politicians stepped in. They wanted to show the International Community how much compassion the Jews have in victory. They wanted Islam to see the Jews remembered their captivity among the nations, and were not going to deal with the Moslems the way the Moslems dealt with them when they were the occupied in Islamic countries. The Palestinian Arabs have been showing their gratitude ever since. The International Community represented by the United Nations showed their response to Jewish compassion by writing one sided resolutions against Israel ever since.
Friend, seeking the compassion of this world is worthless. The only compassion that has meaning is that which God manifested to the world when the Lord Jesus Christ came the first time. He came as the only perfect atonement for sin that was acceptable to a Holy God. The Bible makes it clear that it was due to the compassion of God for lost sinners that He allowed sin filled men to nail His only begotten Son on Calvary. It was because God loves lost sinners, and wants to see them saved.
16For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
Friend, the Bible says Christ loves you so much that He endured Calvary on your behalf. He bore your sin on His own body so that a Holy God would be satisfied with His perfect sacrifice.
1 Peter 2:24
24Who his own self bare our sins in his own body on the tree, that we, being dead to sins, should live unto righteousness: by whose stripes ye were healed.
Oh friend, there is only one way to have your sins forgiven, and that is to come to this Biblical Christ who shed His blood for the atonement of sin. You must come to Him. There is no other place, or no other person where you can go. Friend, you must be born again.
7Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be born again.
1 Peter 1:23-25
23Being born again, not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible, by the word of God, which liveth and abideth for ever.
24For all flesh is as grass, and all the glory of man as the flower of grass. The grass withereth, and the flower thereof falleth away:
25But the word of the Lord endureth for ever. And this is the word which by the gospel is preached unto you.
Friend, come to Christ, and live!

RCA, Israeli Rabbinate Agree to Standardize Conversions
(IsraelNN.com) The Rabbinical Council of America (RCA), the largest Orthodox rabbinic group in the world, and the Chief Rabbinate of the State of Israel, have reached an agreement that will formalize mutual recognition of Orthodox conversions to Judaism.
The agreement involves the automatic recognition in Israel of conversions performed by any one of the participating batei din (rabbinical courts) which will be part of the soon to-be-established network of Regional Batei Din for Geirut (conversion.) All participating batei din will follow standardized procedures at every step of the conversion process.
Rabbi Barry Freundel, Chairman of the joint Geirut Policies and Standards Committee said “this historic and long-overdue agreement is a major milestone – not just for future converts to Judaism and their descendants, but for the entire Jewish people, in North America, Israel, and around the world. By thus standardizing conversions procedures and standards, many individuals, families, rabbis and Jewish communities will be able to avoid many of the problems heretofore experienced."
Who is a Jew? This question has caused nothing but problems since the State of Israel was established. 80% of the Jews living in Israel do not believe in God, but have no problem being Jewish under current Judaism. Their mother was Jewish, and so they are Jewish. The exception is natural born Jews who become Christians. They are not Jews according to the RCA, and the chief Rabbinate of Israel. Being Jewish according to the leaders of today's Judaism has nothing to do with ethnicity. It has everything to do with their unbiblical theology that now has been standardized. The issue here is more about conversions then determining ethnic origin, but these same groups make the final decision on both issues. A person could trace his or her heritage back to Abraham himself, yet these puffed up religionists have the authority today to rule then not Jewish. What is a Christian Jew's legal ethnicity according to these modern day Pharisees? Imagine similar groups ruling me as no longer Bohemian because I won't go along with their personal theology?
Judaism today is truly the leaven of the Pharisees as Christ had warned. A few puffed up rabbis make all the decisions. They change the Jewish law whenever the wind blows. They invent tradition which all of Judaism is expected to uphold. They are as changeable as the wind. They are the instruments of the liberal politicians much as the Pharisees of Christ's day were the instruments of the Roman government. I have no doubts that when God turns the hearts of many Jews to their Messiah the LORD Jesus Christ that these modern Pharisees will reject Him out of hand. Today, they forbid any Messianic Jews from applying for citizenship. I doubt they will change after the rapture takes [lace, and God starts calling out Jews for redemption. The Bible speaks of a one-eyed one armed Jewish leader who is called the idol shepherd.
15And the Lord said unto me, Take unto thee yet the instruments of a foolish shepherd.
16For, lo, I will raise up a shepherd in the land, which shall not visit those that be cut off, neither shall seek the young one, nor heal that that is broken, nor feed that that standeth still: but he shall eat the flesh of the fat, and tear their claws in pieces.
17Woe to the idol shepherd that leaveth the flock! the sword shall be upon his arm, and upon his right eye: his arm shall be clean dried up, and his right eye shall be utterly darkened.
I should be safe for it is my left eye that is utterly darkened. I'm thankful for the little sight I still have in my right eye. I feel so sorry for those who are spiritually dead. It is far better to be physically blind then spiritually blind. The great majority of Jews follow the liberal Olmert who has sworn to giver the barbarians all of Judah, and Samaria before his term ends as Prime Minister. They follow this foolish shepherd today, and will follow the antichrist tomorrow if God does not intervene.
Friend, it is all about having a changed heart. The Jews of the next dispensation will need a circumcised heart. Both the Jews and gentiles of this dispensation need to be born again. It is only a small remnant of any generation that come to the God of the Bible for salvation. Friend, the foolish shepherds are without number. Their goal is to use you to climb to the top of of their profession. They will eat you up in their climb to fame and fortune. Only Christ feeds His sheep.
10Behold, the Lord God will come with strong hand, and his arm shall rule for him: behold, his reward is with him, and his work before him.
11He shall feed his flock like a shepherd: he shall gather the lambs with his arm, and carry them in his bosom, and shall gently lead those that are with young.
Christ is the good shepherd. Not only does He feed His flock, but He laid down his life that His sheep might be saved. Friend won't you come to this Christ for salvation? Friend, do you hear the voice of Christ calling for you? Today, it matters not who you are. You can come. and receive salvation so gracious is this Biblical Savior. Once You come, He will never let you go. His salvation is eternal. You are kept by His power forever, but it is up to you to come. Won't you come to the good shepherd?
11I am the good shepherd: the good shepherd giveth his life for the sheep.
12But he that is an hireling, and not the shepherd, whose own the sheep are not, seeth the wolf coming, and leaveth the sheep, and fleeth: and the wolf catcheth them, and scattereth the sheep.
13The hireling fleeth, because he is an hireling, and careth not for the sheep.
14I am the good shepherd, and know my sheep, and am known of mine.
15As the Father knoweth me, even so know I the Father: and I lay down my life for the sheep.
16And other sheep I have, which are not of this fold: them also I must bring, and they shall hear my voice; and there shall be one fold, and one shepherd.

by Hillel Fendel
(IsraelNN.com) The interim Winograd report on the Second Lebanon War has not yet been published, but leaked previews have already prompted calls for the government's resignation.
Prime Minister Ehud Olmert, Defense Minister Amir Peretz, and ex-IDF Chief of Staff Dan Halutz all came in for varying degrees of sharp criticism regarding their functioning in last summer's war with Hizbullah. Some details of the preliminary findings were publicized by Channel Ten news over the weekend.
Though the members of the Winograd Commission were practically hand-picked by Olmert, they found him to have "failed" in the way he oversaw the war. The word "failure" repeats itself several times in the Commission's summary of his performance, though neither he, nor anyone else, is specifically called upon to resign.
Findings in Brief
Olmert "acted with hastiness and arrogance," the Commission found. He did not consult with bodies other than the IDF, such as the National Security Council, and did not even convene the mini-security Cabinet before ordering the army to act. He was led by the army, instead of leading. The Prime Minister did not demand that the army provide him with alternatives, and did not properly deal with the "local operation" becoming a full-fledged war.
Peretz was castigated for assuming the position of Defense Minister altogether without having been properly prepared for such. He also did not properly study the problems at hand, and did not consult sufficiently with the experts in his office. Peretz was cleared of responsibility for the army's lack of preparation, which largely occurred in the years before he became Defense Minister.
Gen. Halutz, who resigned following the army's internal investigation of the war three months ago, was found to have belittled Hizbullah's Katyusha rocket capacities, and did not provide alternatives to the government.
Full Version on Monday
The full version of the report is to be publicized at 5 PM on Monday, and Olmert will receive a copy one hour earlier.
Though the Commission was appointed in order to review the errors of the Second Lebanon War so that the proper lessons might be learned and the deficiencies be corrected, the immediate result of the leaked findings appears to be only political. The question at hand is: Will public opinion force the Prime Minister to resign? Olmert and allies are bracing to remain in power, the Opposition has already begun steps to oust the government, and some members of Kadima and other coalition parties are remaining on the fence, waiting to see what develops.
Opposition leader MK Binyamin Netanyahu of the Likud met on Friday with far-left Meretz party leader MK Yossi Beilin, to discuss the report's political ramifications. Beilin said, unsurprisingly, that he would not support a replacement government headed by Netanyahu. Despite this, following the Channel Ten revelations, Beilin said that Olmert must resign immediately.
Within the coalition, Labor's Danny Yatom - an underdog in the Labor race for party leader next month - said the entire government must resign. MKs Zevulun Orlev and Aryeh Eldad (National Union/National Religious Party) also called, once again, for Olmert's resignation.
National Union faction chairman MK Uri Ariel has already submitted a legislative proposal for the dissolution of the Knesset and new elections. "The Winograd conclusions and the resulting public sentiment require that we prepare for new elections," Ariel explained, "and we might as well come up with an agreed-upon date among the various parties."
Anti-Government Rally on Thursday
A large anti-government protest rally has already been announced for this Thursday in Tel Aviv. The protest has been called by the Civil Coalition, headed by retired IDF General Uzi Dayan.
A critical question is whether Olmert's Kadima party will stick with him. On the one hand, Kadima generally supported the war effort whole-heartedly, but some pockets of resistance were heard within a few days of the beginning of the war. Most worrisome for Olmert is the fact that his main competitor, Foreign Minister Tzipi Livni, will be able to say that she asked for limitations on the offensive and the opening of diplomatic channels just days after the war started, but Olmert did not agree.
Incompetence is the issue. Olmert knew he needed the army to evict over 250,000 Independent Fundamental Jewish Settlers from Judah and Samaria. The Israeli army like the United States army is mostly made up of conservative minded folks. Many officers privately complained that it would be difficult to obey orders calling for violent eviction of fellow Jews off their land. Some officers even lived on the lands marked for eviction. Olmert played the political game, and replaced competent conservative officers with political hacks out of the officer corps. Party affiliation was all that mattered, not competence. A great shuffling took place, and conservative officers were moved into low priority positions. Less competent officers who had the right liberal political leanings replaced them. Olmert was ready to move on the settlers! Suddenly the Lebanon War broke out, and Israel went into battle with a host of untried liberal officers. The disaster is what the Winograd Report is all about. Israel lost to Hizbullah. Israel in spite of invasion could not stop Hizbullah from firing rockets into Jewish population centers. If anything, the rate of rocket fire increased. The range began to expand. Olmert the ever calculating liberal politician then did something almost unbelievable. He went into the General Staff which had been immune to politics until that time, and said changes needed to be done in the aftermath of such a disgraceful showing by the Israeli Army. He cleaned out all the remaining conservative officers forcing them into retirement. He replaced them with the same incompetent liberal minded officers who had just failed on the battle field causing this disaster. Olmert is not preparing for war with Islam. He is preparing for war with the Jews. The Independent Fundamental Jewish Settlers to be exact.
It appears even the liberal secular Jews of Israel are getting fed up with Olmert. His days may be numbered. The sad thing is someone even worse then Olmert will probably replace him. There is no mood among the Jews to swing back to a more conservative government. The liberals are entrenched, and nothing is going to be able to dig them out. Nothing but God when the time is right. A remnant of Jews are going to be sealed at the moment of the rapture. 144,000 of them to be exact. An angel from the East who has the seal of God will mark them on their foreheads. The Bible says they will be the firstfruits of the next dispensation. The Church Age ends with the rapture, and as the saints of God go up an angel descends to earth sealing this small remnant of Jews. This planet will never be without a testimony for Christ.
7And after these things I saw four angels standing on the four corners of the earth, holding the four winds of the earth, that the wind should not blow on the earth, nor on the sea, nor on any tree.
2And I saw another angel ascending from the east, having the seal of the living God: and he cried with a loud voice to the four angels, to whom it was given to hurt the earth and the sea,
3Saying, Hurt not the earth, neither the sea, nor the trees, till we have sealed the servants of our God in their foreheads.
4And I heard the number of them which were sealed: and there were sealed an hundred and forty and four thousand of all the tribes of the children of Israel.
God does not need a majority to accomplish His will. A few good men is all that is needed. The masses have been rejecting Him down through the ages. The great flood of Noah saw only 8 survive the waters of God's wrath. The masses perished in judgment. The ending of this dispensation will only see a very small remnant of the earth, and even a remnant among the throngs claiming the title of Christian who will be translated into the presents of Christ ending the Church Age. The masses will all be left behind to face judgment in the Great Tribulation. A remnant among the millions of Israelis. A mere 144,000 Jews will set the foundation for the next dispensation of the Kingdom Age. These are going to be very special Jews.
14And I looked, and, lo, a Lamb stood on the mount Sion, and with him an hundred forty and four thousand, having his Father's name written in their foreheads.
2And I heard a voice from heaven, as the voice of many waters, and as the voice of a great thunder: and I heard the voice of harpers harping with their harps:
3And they sung as it were a new song before the throne, and before the four beasts, and the elders: and no man could learn that song but the hundred and forty and four thousand, which were redeemed from the earth.
4These are they which were not defiled with women; for they are virgins. These are they which follow the Lamb whithersoever he goeth. These were redeemed from among men, being the firstfruits unto God and to the Lamb.
5And in their mouth was found no guile: for they are without fault before the throne of God.
These firstfruits of the next dispensation are most probably alive in Israel right now. Children, Virgins, in who's mouth is found no guile, men who are without fault before the throne of God. These will not be political men. They will be sold out to the Lamb of God. They will be redeemed from the earth! They will be the ones qualified to build the Holy Jewish Temple on the Temple Mount. They will be the ones who will be able to establish acceptable Holy worship of God in the soon coming Temple. Their fruit is a wonderment. In just 7 years under the worst time of adversity, they will accomplish what the Church could not do in 2000 years.
9After this I beheld, and, lo, a great multitude, which no man could number, of all nations, and kindreds, and people, and tongues, stood before the throne, and before the Lamb, clothed with white robes, and palms in their hands;
10And cried with a loud voice, saying, Salvation to our God which sitteth upon the throne, and unto the Lamb.
13And one of the elders answered, saying unto me, What are these which are arrayed in white robes? and whence came they?
14And I said unto him, Sir, thou knowest. And he said to me, These are they which came out of great tribulation, and have washed their robes, and made them white in the blood of the Lamb.
15Therefore are they before the throne of God, and serve him day and night in his temple: and he that sitteth on the throne shall dwell among them.
Friend, are you among the remnant, or are you part of the crowd? Do you know for certain there is a white robe washed clean of all sin in the blood of the Lamb waiting for you? The only way is to come to Christ. It is the biblical Christ who shed His blood at Calvary so your sins can be washed away. The salvation that the Lamb of God offers is absolutely free. The only requirement is for you to reach out and accept this free gift from God. You must come to Christ for only He is the distributor of His blood. You must ask Him to wash you clean. He never refuses a repentant sinner coming to Him for salvation. It is you dear friend who prevents the application of the blood of Christ to your sin because you refuse to come. Only those who are born again will enter into the coming Kingdom. Friend, Christ will not force Himself on you. It is you who must come of your own free will to Him. Oh, come to Christ, and live.
28Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.
29Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls.
30For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.
